Anyone reading the leading arti

not being otherwise informed, is
qgr liable to form a very incorrect osli-
male of lion. I Whitakcr, an ex-
'." Premier of New Zealand. He is
called a "pseudo-statesman," which

t quack, or a sort of counterfeit
statesman, and not the true metal.
But is lie in reality nothing more?

If" than once been called similar names ;
" , but they arc not such fools after all,
IK nor such ignorant, babes in stales-
,,r manship. We do not pretend to say
!j. that Whitakcr is in any sense the
' equal of Bismarck or Gladstone ; but
1 if they, the great minds of two great
f' countries, arc thought to be pscudo-
0-1 statesmen by some insignificant

Mr. Whitakcr is tlic rcalest, or
even one of the greatest, statesmen
in the colony in which be has played
an important part for many years.
But we do claim that he is a real
statesman, of good ability and aver
age attainments, and that lie has
frequently been "thrust into promi
nent political positions" by his con
stituents, because of his "aptitude"
for those positions. Wc have' no
particular interest in Mr. Whitakcr,
oilier than a desire to sec him get
fair play, and do not propose letting
our contemporary have all his own

cussion. A DEPUTY SHERIFF OH HAWAII.
In connection with the recent at
tempted murder and suicide at IIo
nokaa, some interesting disclosures
have been made of the method in
which Mr. Sandford, llic Deputy
Sheriff of Ilamakua, conducts his
ofllcial business. It appears that
the man Ilamer, who attempted to
murder a Portuguese, had recently
been "left in charge of the jail, and
acting as policeman for the last live
or six weeks, although holding no
policeman's commission. Since his
appointment to the jail he has been
drunk on every available occasion,
and engaged in several titrcot lights.
The same (by that he shot tho Por
tuguese, he attacked and beat another
man. At the time thin ajf'air oc
curred, all the priionern tl the jail
were tit larye and there wan iiothiny
to prevent them from matiny their
The above information was pub-
, lished in tho Adcertiner, and, fol-
.' lowing close upon this case, wo liavo
received, from a correspondent in
Ilamakua, tho following statement,
' which, if true, shows that the loose
example, in conducting an inquest,
shown recently in Honolulu in con
..ncction with the death of the late
MivBucklc, is followed by ollleials
on the- other Mauds. Our corre

only district in the Kingdom that can
boast of such a .Sheriff. Hut what
can bo expected after the recent ex-
ample set by Mr. Sandford's superior
olllccr in Honolulu at the llucklc in
quest? Mr. Sandford's aptness for
ollicial duties is only another proof
of the necessity for a wholesale re

another of the "old school" who
should bo immediately pensioned off

of Deputy Sheriffs so that the ser
vices of good men may be secured.

The following is a copy of the
letter sent to each of the Foreign
Representatives in Honolulu :
The undersigned, subjects and cit
izens of Foreign States, resident in
Honolulu, beg leave to represent to
you the great alarm and anxiety
which wc entertain at tho great and
rapid increase of the disease of lep
rosy in this Kingdom.
For many years tlio existence of
this disease lias occasioned more or
less solicitude to all classes of for
eigners, and wc have hoped that such
steps would bo taken as would lead
to the suppression of the disease.
We regret to state that after I0112
and anxious suspense, wc lind the
scourge invading our schools, and
threatening our homes, and we arc
conscious of no sutllcicut efforts
being made to mitigate the evil, or
even to keep it within bounds. The
ostensible attempt to isolate, and so
limit the disease, appears to be en
tirely inadequate and delusive, and
wc believe the course pursued and
the neglect of practical measures arc
equally condemned by the medical
gentlemen, whose opinions arc en
titled to our most earnest considera
tion. The matter has become so serious
and alarming that wc arc compelled
to ask you if you can, in your high
ollicial positions, initiate any steps
that will reassure us and the inmates
of our homes.
We would protest against any at
tempt to raise party discussion or
political or personal questions on
such an occasion, and wc arc satis
lied that you, gentlemen, would re
fuse to be addressed in such a spirit.
Wc take the liberty of this step in
the earnest humble effort to protect
'our homes against a scourge, whose
approach we cannot ignore, and at
whose name every owner of a home
As the Diplomatic Representatives
of the natipns from which most of
the foreign residents have come, wc
arc assured that you will regard o in
action in placing this subject before
you as proper on our part.
The intcrcits of foreign as well as
native residents are gravely at stake,
and wc hope that by joint conference
and such joint action as you may
deem it proper to take, those in
terests may be defended from the
ravages of this terrible disease.

Jn reply to the enquiries made bv

Mr. Gibson stated that at Molokai
and at Kakaako there were altogether
about 980 lepers that four hundred
had been drafted from Kakaako to
Molokai during the last 1G months
that never had greater efforts been
made, than at tho present time, to
deal with and control leprosy; that
sixty more lepers are expected to be
sent this week to Molokai. That all
the largo appropriation for leprosy
had been spent, and that an indem
nity for $15,000 will be demanded
from the Legislature for additional
expenses incurred on behalf of
With reference to the reports of
the existence of leprosy in the public
schools, and especially in Fort St.
School, which have caused so much
alarm, Mr. Gibson said that ho did
not believe that there was a single
case of leprosy in those schools j but
that live children, -had been some
time ago removed from them on that
account. However, there would bo
an examination of Fort St. School

similarly examined by a Medical
Board, and those parents objecting
to llic examination of their children
by that Board must produce health

Mr. Gibson assured the Foreign
Representative'! that lie would, as

THE BOYS' READ1NC ROOM.
KniTOit llri.i.ivnx: I have at va
rious limes of late heard a good deal
about tho Boys' Heading Room, and
naturally expected that when I know
more about it 1 should lind a regular
well-ordered institution with books
pamphlets, etc., for the information
and culture of the young mind. But
one has to look in vain for such tin
institution. The reading matter may
be in the room, but the boys minds,
from what 1 could judge the other
evening, seem to be concentrated on
soniclhiuff far different. On this
particular evening each lad seemed
to be vying with another as to which
could make the greater noise, and
with one or two exceptions, each was
pulling away at a cigar.
Whether this was a gala day with
the boys or not, or whether it was
one of their annual dinners I cannot
say, but it seems to me that parents
ought to take a little more care as
to the whereabouts of their children
at night, and how they employ their
time. If such scenes as this of
which 1 speak go ou day after day,
(I hope they do not) what can be
expected of "Our Boys" as they
grow up into manhood? How can
it be expected that they will grow up
intelligent and useful men -when they
spend their early life thus? The
case of the present generation of
young men in Honolulu is pitiable
enough, but let us see if something
cannot be done for the future.
