OUR BOYS AND GIRLS.
The boys and girls of the present
arc the men and women of the fu
ture: the character of the futiuc
men and women is beiug formed by
the present training of tlio boys and
girls: home influence has more to do
with the formation of their character
than school instruction. Let boys
and girls grow up without proper
home, restraint and discipline, and it
is not reasonable to expect them to
become good and useful members of
society. Let boys and girls be care
fully trained and wisely disciplined
at home, and they will show it in
their mature years. Judging by this
rule, what are we to expect of i
large proportion of the rising gene
ration of Honolulu? Paiental care
and home restraint appear to be
sadly wanting. Late in the even
ings crowds of children, of both
sexes and all sizes, congregate to
gether and play about the sticets, in
the most disreputable parts of the
city. There they learn and practice
foul language and other bad things,
which the best schools in the coun
try can never entirely counteract.
If parents and guaidians do not feel
sufficient intcrc-t in their children to
prevent their thus running wild, the
police should interpose a check.
THE -CHIHESE THEATRE.
It is high time thai the Chinese
Theatre were either shut up by the
authorities or placed under more
vigilant police surveillance. This
belief is entertained by many lcspee
lable Chinese as well as by people
of other nationalities. Some people
regard it in the light of a public nui
sance, because of the perpetual din
and noise kept up every night until
mid-night, and often later. This
is the view of those living in the
immediate neighborhood, who are
compelled to endure the annoyance
night after night. 15ut there is a
much stronger objection on moral
grounds. The Chinese Theatre is
said to be the common rcsoit of
gamblers and opium-smokers, wjiere
they commit their illegal practices
with a feeling of comparative secu
rity from detection. Not only at
night-time, during and after the
theatrical performances, arc gam
bling and opium-biiioking perpetrated
in the small rooms attached to the
main building, but in the day-time
also. These slsftements are made ou
the authoiity of Chinamen them
selves, and if correct, of which we
have no doubt, it would be well
either to cancel the proprietor's
license or subject internal operations
to a stricter watch.

THE TWO TELEPHONES.
Editor Bui.i.otik : Your 'cotie
spondent "Rational" miggests the
amalgamation of the two telephone
companies, and therein I agree with
him. He seems to mo, however, to
have lost sight of some important
points. The community has already
received &omo benefit from the com-
petition by a considerable reduction 1
in the rates of the old company.
Should the new company retire,
wh.U guarantee is there that the old
one. will not again raise their monthly
charges? The stock of the Ha
waiian Hell Company is in the hands
of about a dozen individuals, whereas
nearly three hundred arc interested
directly in the Mutual Company.
The object of the former is to make
money for themselves, while sup
plying a good article ; the object of
thu latter is not to make money but
to reduce the individual cost to a
minimum. It is a case of the few
against the inairy, and who is to give
way? About two hundred of the
stockholders in the Mutual Com
pany have agreed to use the instru
ments of that company, where then
will the other company be? It lias
its instruments and its wires which
would of course be useful to
the new company, which would
doubtless be glad to purchase them.
I think the only way to succeed in
amalgamating would be for the
stockholders of each company to ap
point arbitrators to decide on the
amount to be paid by either to the
other. The Mutual has, as Rational
says, a good site. It also proposes
to utilize, as much as possible, the
cable system and so abolish the un
sightly nuisance that exists on Mer
chant street. The more shareholders
there arc, in the company, the better,
and 1 hope never to sec the stock of
the Mutual gradually fall into a few
hands. The directors should, by
their by-laws, try to prevent this. I
hold stock in neither company, 1 feel
the necessity for a good telephonic
system, I do not want to sec a cut
throat policy adopted by the two
companies, I do not wish to be com
pelled to have two telephones in my
house, I do not wish to see the ma
terial of the old company wasted or
their tower tumble down. I should
like to see a good system established,
not that there is anything to com
plain about the existing one, at a
reasonable rale and with as many
people diicctly interested in it as
possible. Holding these views I
hope that 1 may not be considered
Ennou Bcu.utin: In reading
the letter in your paper signed
"Clerk," I was sorry to sec lie ad
vocated Saturday. If 1 am not mis
taken, it was because that day, for
which Mr. It. C. Janion procured
the signatures (avhich were legion),
being found inconvenient on account
of most of the steamers arriving, that
the early closing has almost died out,
one or two firms only keeping up the
practice. 'Wednesday or Thursday
seems to be the best time, as most
of the steamersarc in iy Saturday
afternoon, and away again by Thurs
Clerks idea of Saturday is very
nice, if practicable, but I fear it has
been proved too inconvenient to most
employers, but-which ever will suit,
let's have the day. It was custo
mary in the Colonics to close on
Thursday afternoon and the five
hours never seemed to he missed.
After 1 o'clock all unices were closed
and shops shut up, so let it be here.

BOYS AND THIMBLES
No man can, like the writer, live
sixty years without often wishing he
had learned to use a sowing thimble
well in his early boyhood, especially
if he has gone about the world much,
Muttons will come off, stitches will
break, and how handy it is for boys
at school, for men at a hotel, at a
friend's house, indeed, anywhere
away from home often at home
to bo ablo to whip ou a button, stop
a starting rent, and do many other
little sewings, without calling in a
woman, or perchance sending for a
tailor, before beiug able to appear
at a hotel table. One seldom, if
ever, learns to use a thimble, if this
part of his education hns been neg
lected in small boyhood. The writer
has traveled n good deal, and at a
rough guess, he has broken threads
at least five hundred times in at
tempting to work a needle through
a button or garment without a thim
ble. Hoys, take our advice, and every
Lone of you learn to use a thimble
well before yott grow up. Do it this
very winter : it is not feminine to do
so. Doit, and, if you 'live long,
you will many times thank us for
this advice. American Agricultur
