Our cone.-poudent "Pal riot" in
referring again to lite formation of
Boards tells us that lie thinks --it
would not he so dillicult to constitute
an ellleient Hoard of Kducation as
we suppose." We are glad to hear
this from such a good authority as
"Patriot" and hope tho day will not
he far distant when the much needed
change will be made. On the sub
ject of payment of members, Patriot
says that if they be. paid we "will
find a thousand incompetent candi
dates for olllce, and the way to cor-i-iiptinn
will at once lie opened." It
docs not follow that the "thousand
incompetent candidates for office"
need bo appointed, and wc trust that
there is such a desire for the welfare
of the country, in the minds of the
persons who have the power to make
these nppoiiilmcn(b, as to prevent
the selection of the "thousand in
competent candidates." A profes
sional considers his opinion to be of
a certain value, and we know of
countries in which medical men w-
coivc a remuneration, for their ser
vices on Boards, and for the advice
and opinions which they arc compc-
! lent to afford to their fellow mem
bers who have received no medical
1 trainin-. Tf they will give their
j services gratuitously then so much
the belter, but we think it preferable
to pay a competent man, even if he
be "no patriot," than to lose his
CREAT BRITAIN'S SUGAR DUTY.
The editorial article of yesterday's
Advertise)' contains the following:
"Great llritnm presents a Far off
market, but even if nearer and more
eligible her policy is against discrim
inating in our favor since she abso
lutely refuses to do so in favor of
her own colonies. Moreover, the
duly on sugar in (.treat Urilain is
very light and a discrimination
secured would not compensate for
the extra cost of freigKt." True in
part, but not entirely. Great Britain
closely approximates to absolute free,
trade, and duties that may still be
levied on any of the necessaries of
life are extremely light. .She has, in
the past, shown a strong disinclina
tion to discriminate in favor of any
country, but at present there are
symloms of an opposite tendency, as
instanced in recent negotiations with
Spain. It is hardly right to say that
"the duty on sugar in Great Britain
is light." because there is no duty
at all. There was a duty of a half
penny per pound until a- few years
ago, when that small amount was
reduced to nothing.
A DISTURBANCE AT KAKAAK0.
Hearing rumors yesterday of a
disturbance at Kakaako wc made
enquiries from Mr. Van Gcisen, Hie
superintendent, and give his story of
At half past three in the morning
1 heard a noise which T thought was
an earthquake, I was asleep in my
house with my wife and children.
The noise was caused by ten of the
leper patients who .smashed open the
door and rushed at me seizing me
by the leg, throat, beard and body.
I immediately put my hand out for
my revolver which is always at the
side of my bed, but before I could
use it the, men had seized me. I
shouted for help and all the police
men on duty came to my assistance,
and the men were captured and
placed in the cells. The motive for
the attack- was revenge. The lepers
had passed Hie eight policemen who
were on duty, without .bcing seen,
and had crept up to my house. I
reported the matter to Mr. Dayton
anil borrowed .some more handcuffs.
Three of the men ivho attacked me
wei e to be sent to Molokni but now
1 intend to &cwl all ten and they will
be the ftnt shipped on board the
Mokolii. I had carried a revolver
(an ivory one. ornamented with
gold) to-day as 1 value my life at
more than that of all the lepers.
There were four other policemen
who were not on duty. Dr. Fitch is
out of town and Dr. Parker has not
been at the Branch Hospital to-day.
Her Majesty Queen Kapiolani came
here early in the morning and ad
vised tho people to be quiet. She
had heard of and asked about Hie
The ten men were confined, hand
cuffed, in two cells about six feet
long and four feet wide, five men
being in each cell. The superin
tendent stated that he considered
that was "good enough treatment
for them." The representatives of
the Bn.r.r.Tix and Gazette were al
lowed to see, but not converse with,
five of the men ; but the ringleaders
were not exposed to view. The
door of the cell was opened and a
policeman called to "stand by" as
it a rush were expected from the
prisoners, but they sat quite still.
Further reference to this disturb
ance and particulars of information
received will lie given in our next

Ah Chow, Ah Wai, Ah San and
Ah Chan were charged with assault
and battery, Mr. John Kiissell for
the defence. There had been a dis
pute "with another Chinaman relative
to some land and tho defendants
held that the injured party fell on
somc ploughed land, thus inflicting
the injuries. Judge Biekcrton con
sidered, from the nature of the in

and serious character, that they
must have been inflicted by a blow

ic- of the day, or what may become so.
Wc lescrve the right to excise purely
Wc do not hold ourselves responsible
for the opinions expressed by our cor
Kihtok Bou.r.Tix: I thank you
for the insertion of my last, and
would ask the additional favor of
space for this.
I do not entirely approve of every
thing contained in your article on
the subject of my communication.
You arc quite correct, I believe, in
saying that "until the reign of the
present Premier there was no such
monopoly of Boards as exists to
day." Nevertheless, our Boards,
with 'the exception of the Board of
Education, had too close a connec
tion with the general government
previous to the reign of the present
Premier. I believe I am right in
saying that the Boards of Health
and Immigration have always been'
partly made up of men holding cabi
net positions. Whereas, my opinion
is that it would be better for those
Boards and for the Ministers to have
no connection whatever.
A Board of Health entirely com
posed of non-medical men lias always
6cemcd to me an anomoly. But this,
to my mind, is less objectionable
than making it a committee of min
isters of state. I do not think it
would be so difficult to constitute an
efficient Board of Education as you
suppose. There arc probably more
men in the community fitted for that
Board than for either of the others.
I refer to such men as have been at
sonic period of their lives engaged in
the work of teaching.
Your suggestion that members of
the Boards be paid I cannot endorse.
The moment you attach a money va
lue to membership you will find a
thousand incompetent candidates for
office, and the way to corruption will
at once be opened. Of course, the
Boards need executive officers, and
these officers must be paid, as at
present. A man who will not give a
little of his leisure for the good of
his country is no patriot. Board
meetings might be held in Hie even
ings, so that men who have their
own matters to attend to during the
day time might attend without detri
ment to their own business. This
is what is done in many other coun
tries. Why not hero? Pathiot.
Editor Bumxtik : I. in common
with many others, am glad to see the
agitation of the half-holiday ques
tion. If agreed to and adhered to
by all, nobody would be injured and
everybody would bo benefitted
thereby. I have always considered
the business hours of Honolulu
unnecessarily long. In the first
place, what need is there for store
keepers to open their stores at soven
o'clock in tho morning, particularly
dry goods establishments ? How
much business do they do for the
next two hours? A very few pcoplo
here, any more than elsewhere, go
out shopping before nlno or ten
o'clock. It is tnio that live o'clock
is not u late hour to close. But it
would bc.just as well for the busi
ness people and their customers if
they did not open until eight or nlno
o'clock. I think most men would
prefer working vigorously seven or
eight hours a day to being employed
nine or ten hours with less to do.
But this is not what 1 meant to
say when 1 began. My intention
was to suggest that it might be easier
for everybody to shut up ntnoon on
Wednesdays than at tho same hour
on Saturdays. In some countries
where the half-holiday arrangement
is in vogue the middle of the week
is found more convenient for all
concerned for closing than the end
of the week. Mechanics and labor
ing men usunlty get then- pay on
Saturday and lay in their week a
supply of provisions on that day.
For litis class of the community it is
a decided accomodation for shops to
keep open Saturday evenings. In
fact, the reverse might bo considered
a great inconvenience. This, of
course, applies only to retail houses.
But the same difficulty is not in the
way of a unanimous closing for a
half day in the middle of the week.
No doubt, the majority of em
ployees would rather have the half
day on Saturday, but better have it
on Wednesday than not at all. So I
would suggest that if the most desir
able day is not practicable let those
concerned agree upon a day less im
