AN EDITOR IN TRflCBLE
THE WEBB-ASHFORD AFFRAY.
On Saturday morning, just before
ten o'clock, Mr. J. R. Webb, editor
of the Advertiser, went to the olllco
of Mr. Clarence W. A&hford on Ka
aliutnanu street with a copy of the
Weekly Advertiser in his hand which
ho placed upon Mr. Ashford's table,
pointing to a letter which had caused
some previous disturbance between
the two gentlemen, and concerning
which threats had been openly used.
Mr. A&hford looked at the paper,
and, seeing that the objection
able paragraph had not been omitted,
he immediately picked up a chair
willi which he belaboured the edi
tor's head and followed tip the at
, tack with his fists. Mr. "Webb was
compelled to give
a env ron m:u'.
Mr. S. I). Dole, who occupies an ad
joining ollicc, rushed into the room
to proffer assistance, and found that
Mr. A&hford had seized Mr. 'Webb
1)3 the throat and had his head
pinned against the wall near the
telephone. The two parties were
separated and Mr. Webb retired to
his own ofllcc.
Mr. Webb, by proceeding to Mr.
Ashford's ofllcc, practically asked
the latter gentleman to inllict the
promised casttgation, and Mr. Ash
ford eagerly seized the desired op
portunity to keep his promise. The
"Californian custom " of defending
such attack was conspicuous by its
absence, and the editorial six-shooter
did not see the light of day. The
whole town was astir with excite
ment on Saturday morning, and all
the details of the affray were eagerly
"Thero arc two ways in which to
deal with an individual who makes
such threats as that indulged in by
Mr. Clarence Ashford. One is to
bring him up before the Magistrate
and have him bound over (o keep the
pence. The other is to buy a re
volver and wait for him. Tho editor
has lived long enough in California,
and has imbibed enough of the spirit
of that fair land to choose the latter
alternative" J'. C. Advertiser.
Califoinmns say that the mode of
action of our contemporary's editor,
on Saturday, hardly realized their
expectations, after the announce
ment that ho made, and that it was
a libel on California.
A CURIOUS DOCUMENT.
His Honor .Mr. Justice McCully
was, last week, the recipient of
the following curious document,
which is published as written. It is
supposed to have been written by a
Chinaman, but. considering the cor
rect spelling, and the fact that the
'Inspector of the Uui,u:tin" re
ceived a somewhat similar communi
cation last mouth, written on the
same kind of paper, which brought
certain charges against members of
tho Police Force, wo arc inclined to
think thai the author of tho two
documents is one and the same
The following is a copy of the
letter received by His Honor Mr.
Honolulu Feb lllt.1i 1881
Mr Lcwren Mc cully
You are a Justice Judge in the
supreme Court of Hawaian Kingdom

Editou Bi'i.u:tin: 1 hear that
our Honolulu base hall clubs will
soon be on the fields again. The
season will, no doubt, be a memo
rable one for baseballcrs, hut would
it not be advisable to try and make
it more so? To me it has always
seemed as if something more than
the mere victory was needed to in
spire players, and I would suggest
thatsomcof our Honolulu merchants,
interested in the game, would sub
scribe together and purchase some
thing valuable, which should be
played for, the club being victorious
over any and every other club in the
Islands that might be brought against
it, to claim it for the year, and to
become the property of the club only
after two years supremacy. I think
if some such plan were adopted wc
should find more enthusiasm than
was manifested even in the games of
last year, and Sprcckclsvillc would
not be the only club in the other
Islands aspiring to fame. To the
front, II. B. B. C, or you will find
your match in S. this year.

THE BOYS' READINC ROOM ASSO
CIATION. Editok Bl'i,u:tin: Your corre
spondent Vox, who has made some
damaging statements concerning our
reading room, says that "one has
to look in vain for a well ordered
institution, with books, etc., for the
culture of the mind ; '.' and then he
goes on to say that " on this par
ticular evening" (he is careful not
to name the dale) " each lad seemed
to be vying with one another as to
which could make the most noise,
and, with one or two exceptions,
were pulling away at a cigar."
Whether our association is a "well
ordered" one or not, wc leave to the
gentlemen who have visited our
rooms, and who are acquainted with
And that the "lads, with one or
two exceptions, were pulling away at
a cigar" is false, for smoking is
prohibited by the Rules and Regula
tions of the Association, which are
strictly enforced. Should n number
of visitors have so over-stepped tho
rules by such behavior, it is an in
justice to seek to alllx it upon the
If Vox were (and wc invite him
and the public to call and inspect
our room) to come to our reading
room, hq would be received as a
gentleman, and would Jhul such an
institution as ho claims lie is looking
The members amuse themselves at
times with songs, debates, etc., but
before doing so they arc always
polite enough to ascertain whether it
will disturb any member present.
And we believe in having a good
social time among ourselves. Let
this well-wisher of the "boys" ask
himself if it wcro not better for the
boys to be doing thus than to be
found around saloons and walking
Wcro he a well-wisher of the As
sociation, tho reporting of such pro
ceedings, if enacted, to tho Presi
dent of tho Association, would ac
complish his object.
