THE MINISTERIAL NECLECT.
It is a shame that the Ministerial
"Reports are so behind time.
The work of the session is delayed
and valuable time wasted by this
dereliction. 'Mr. Gibson, with his
usual manly spirit, has
, throw the blame upon the printers.
The true causes of the delay arc that
he has arrogated to himself so maivy
offices that preparing the reports
took more time than he had antici
pated, and he did not commence
early enough ; and the other, that he
has written such amass of stuff, .that
undue time is required to translate
and print all.
Of the six reports that should have
been placed in the hands of the Rep
resentatives ere this, they have re
ceived but one, that ol' the Finance
Department. And even this report
has not yet been presented in the
Mr. Gibson is the hcll'-instituted
guardian of Hawaiian liberties ; the
virtuous censor of previous adminis
trations; the severe critic and tra
duccr of Ministers whose record was
purity itself as compared to the
stained pages of the past two years.
Transgressors always like to forget
the past, and to cover their tracks,
but the interminable harangues which
have been prepared for reports will
not blind and mislead as intended.
Calling names and vituperating is
a too common fault, but the manner
in which we have criticised Mr. Gib
son's conduct we believe to be fully
justified by the facts. Like Ben
Butler, it is impossible to talk about
him without saying something to his
JINKS AND BUMPS AT THE LEGIS
LATURE. It was a dull day at the Legisla
ture, and the Bulletin reporter was
balancing himself on tho edge of his
chair, nursing his knee and chewing
a pencil for want of something better
.to do, aud speculating upon the pro
bability of being able to get free
lunches at the eating house which
the Prime Minister and Minister tf
Foreign Affairs is going to open in
his back yard, when Juh dreamy
meditations were suddenly brought
to a close by a voice which lie recog
nized as that of Bumps. He was
evidently in tho middle of a conver
sation, and the first words that the
reporter heard were "So that's
Macfnrlanc is it? Why he's a little
daisy, isn't he j just sweet enough
to kiss, Such soft brown eyes nnd
that bang. I tell you what -if he
would only shave off that killing
mustache and side lights and put on
tights and a bustle and a polonaise,
and take to the stage as a variety
actress, all he'd have to do would be
to just stand there and smile, and
he'd bring down the house,, liko a
thousand of brick on a hill of beans.,
and Iioav he'd scoop the coin."
"Yes," said Jinks, "that's Geawgc,
and he's a lady killer from the word
go a perfect masher. Why they
say that when he rides in from Wai
kiki in the morning he has to wear a
vail, because the girls nil come out
and hang on the gales and look at
him so hard that it makes him bash
ful that's his chief fault he's so
bashful. But when you get down to
business, he's right up to snuff and
on hand every time. Why didn't
you ever hear about that water pipe
job? Why he sold the Government
a lot of cost iron pipe big enough to
run the wholo Pacific Ocean through
it. They didn't need it any more
fthan a cat needs a spelling book
there's four or five miles of it lying
around Ntiuanu street now. But
that wasn't the best of it. Gcawge
he got to windward of old Gibson
somehow or other and got hi3 pay
for the pipe before ever the stuff
ftlcft England. Now that's what I
call financccring. Talk about your
Jay Gould. I don't believe ho ever
Which one is Gibson, anyhow?
Why don't you know him? He's
that sly foxy old coon by the door
there sits on the small of his hack
and the back of his head with his
knees against the desk most of
the time. If you keep your eyes
on him you'll sec that he
never looks continuously at any
one eyes keep going around
like a lightening bug in a marsh.
Poor old sinner, ho must have cold
sweats at night when he thinks of
that finance committee poking around
among the coronation vouchers
there'll be some fun around here
when they report. Why there's
four of the most rabid oppositionists
on'thc committee. Godfrey Brown,
and Smith, andNawahi, and Rowell,
and nobody to represent the Minis
try but Keau, the taro man; and
they say he's looking both sides of
There's a large fine looking man
over there with a gold chain on
who'fe he? That, O thaUs Col. C.
Hastings Judd, Lord High Chamber
maid to His Royal Nibbs. Gibby
hales him as the Devil does holy
water you see Judd is solid with
Rex, and when Gibby tried to get
him fired out so that he could put
in his son-in-law or some other
flunkey, Rex he kicked. Says he to
Gibby, Mr. Gibson, I used to think
that 1 was King, but I have about
given that up as an exploded idea.
I've made three Ministers out of you
at the same time, and you havo made
yourself Prime Minister. I've made
you the Bord of Health, the Bord of
Education, and clone everything
you wanted, but I'm going to draw
the line somewhere, and I shall draw
it here. I've' given you everything
else, but I'm going to choose my
own chamber maid. With that Rex
he sits down hard, and Gibby he
like a sneaks off licked puppy ; and
Judd ho was in the next room and
heard the whole of it, aud ever since
he's laid awake nights blessing

Forcible- arguments wero brought
yesterday against the present appeal
system, by which the same Judge
of the Supreme Court sits on appeal
in cases which he has already tried.
Hon. J. T. Baker, in the debate
on the liquor question, said that
there was virtue in liquor it taught
the English language ; some natives
could not speak a word when sober,
but after drinking could talk flucntlv.
So far as the Ministers arc con
cerned, the suggestions in His Ma
jesty's speech relating to measures
to promote temperate habits, seems
tphave been put in simply as "taffy."
They say they have no measures to
put forward on the subject.
The turkey law was reported back
to the House by the Judiciary Com
mittee, who recommended that the
law should be slightly modified and
passed. The original draft of this
important law in enumerating the
classes of birds to be affected by it
mentioned "peacocks" amongothers.
As this law would exclude peahens
from the benefit of the law it became
necessary to introduce an amend
ment. Fkiday, May 9. Continued.

was properly drawn out. Ho sup

Having occasion in San Francisco
to examine a brick that was taken
from an old ruined and forsaken
building which was being torn down
to make room for a hadsomc busi
ness block, a reporter was somewhat
startled upon adjusting a microscope J
to sec each pore of the brick in
habited with a peculiar rod-like nni
mnlculn; of the genus bacilli. As
these insects cannot be seen other
than by the microscope, even when
they live in the human system and
prcyT upon our vitality, neither are
they visible in tho soil or substance
in which they may live and hive,
except by a powerful glass. Their
motions when they were exposed to
blows wore as the link of a chain,
reminding one of a system of joints
to be extended and contracted. They
were semi-transparent, with a slight,
scintillating column nearly two
thirds their length, extending from
nearly their head to their pointed
tails, probably their spinal column.
As this brick was from the founda
tion and being underground and
next to the street sidewalk, it il
lustrates forcibly the fact that how
ever hard burnt and well made, por
ous substances should not be put
underground for foundations of
sewers. Solid rock, or concrete, or
terra cotta are the only proper build
ing materials below the level of the
sidewalks. S. IP. Chronicle.
PRINTING PRESSES NOT A NUISANCE.
After two years and a half of liti
gation,, the Supreme Court of Penn
sylvania has decided the suit of J.
Carroll McCaffrey against James II.
Elvcrson. The latter is the pub
lisher of two periodicals Saturday
Night and Golden Days.. In 1881
he erected a building at Ninth and
Spruce streets, Philadelphia, special
ly designed for thfc preparing, print
ing and publishing of his publica
tions. Soon after commencing active
operations, the residents of the
neighborhood complained of the
noises made by the printing presses
used in doing the printing of Mr.
Elvcrson's periodicals. Matters were
brought to an issue by J. Carroll Mc
Caffrey, who resided next door to
the Elvcrson building, filing a bill
in equity praying for an injunction
restraining James H. Elvcrson from
canying on, his business so as to be
a nuisance to his neighbors. An
examiner and master was appointed,
who took a large mass of testimony,
much of it of a conficting nature.
The master decided against the run
ning of the presses ; but the Court,
in view of the contradictory evidence,
appointed a commission of disinter
ested experts to examine into the
practical merits of the case. The
commissioners reported against the
nuisance theory, and tho Court
refused to grant an injunction to
stop the presses.
Mr. McCliffrey appealed from this
decision to the Supreme Court of the
State, which affirmed the decision of
the lower tribunal throug Chief
Justice Mercur, who, in his opinion,
said., that a person residing in the
center of a large city cannot expect
to be surrounded with the stillness
which prevails in the rural districts ;
ho must necessarily hear some noise
and occasionally feel some vibrations
produced by the movement and
labor of its people and the hum of
its mechanical industries. Every
noise is not a nuisance ; when it is
produced by the exercise of a law
ful industry, the strong arm of the
law should not be extended for its
suppression. Printers' Circular.
