THE EDITOR OF THE PLANTER'S
We interviewed the Editor of the
Planter's Monthly yesterday upon
the subject of the comments of the
P. C. Advertiser upon the June
number of the Monthly. We asked
him if he, was guilty of publishing
articles written by others.
" Yes," lie replied, "lam. And
frequently the best articles I have
are from them."
" But." he added, ' it seems
funny that the Editor of the P. C. A..
should take exception to the practice.
Why, he edits The Wasp by
proxy May be he will wish, be
fore he is through with it that he
had adopted the same plan with the
P. 0. Advertiser."
" Are you the editor of the Daily
Bulletin?" we asked.
"No," lie replied. "Iain not,
nor have I at any time heretofore
' been the editor, publisher or pro
prietor of that paper."
PRINCIPLES UPON WHICH FRANCHISES
SHOULD BE GRANTED.
A franchise is a special privilege
conferred by Government upon in
dividuals, and which does not be
long to the citizens of the country
It is some right, or the power to
do something, which the public give
to one or more individuals to the ex
clusion of the rest of the community.
The position, with relation to the
public, of a petitioner for a fran
chise, is that of a suppliant asking a
favor ; therefore, when a franchise
is asked for the public should con
sider: First Will the granting of
the franchise prayed for be to the
advantage of the public ? Second
Will it be to its disadvantage ?
Third If it will work both advan
tage and disadvantage, will the ben
efit be greater than the loss occa
sioned. If the granting of the franchise;
will be certainly advantageous to the
public, it should be granted. If it
will work certain harm it should bo
refused. If the good which will be
received is in excess of the loss and
inconvenience which will be caused,
the frauchisc .should be granted ;
The prime object of persons ask
ing for a franchise is to make money ,
but the fact that the franchise will
be valuable to them is never a stifll
cient reason for granting it. The
interests of the public must always
take precedence. The public is in a
position to require that tbo franchise,
while granting to the petitioner his
object, shall ut the same Umc secure
to the public every fair advantage,
ami to protect itself tigninat arbi
trariness on the part of the holders
of the franchise.
A franchise should contain no
power which can possibly bo exercised
to the disadvantage of the public.
It should bo so worded that a
dishonest, unscrupulous, unfair ninn,
can fake no advantage under it. for
the reason that however straight
forward and honest the petitioner may
be, he ninj' sell out, or the control
of the company may pass into the
hands of men of the opposite char-actcr-
FRANCHISE ASKED FOR BY THE
PROPOSED GAS COMPANY.
The bill which is now before the
Legislature, asking that George

general law and convey the franchise
to such corporation.
Si:c. 12. That they be allowed the

agreement is arrived at, and the
decision of any two to be binding
upon both parties.
BENEFITS FROM USING THE JARVIS
FURNACE FOR BURNINC WET TRASH
FROM ROLLS DIRECT.
From the Planters Monthly.)
Pionuuh. Sijuah Mill, )
Lahaina, Maui, May 4, 1884.
In answer to many inquiries made
in relation to the comparative per
formed duty of the Jarvis Patent
Furnanco for burning wet fuel, fresh
cane trash, direct from the rolls with
the same boilers, set in the usual
way, and using dry trash with wood
and for fuel.
The boilers for the mill are three
pairs of the compound construction,
sot tandem, with Jarvis furnaces
complete at the front, and supplied
with tlje fresh trash from the carrier
delivered at the furnace doors.
The best combustion of the trash is
attained by using the Risdon Grate
Bar, first applied to Hie Jarvis
furnace by Mr. F. S. Dunn, the
engineer of the mill, and now en
dorsed by the Jarvis Company in
preference to the Cuba Grate Bar.
The first boiler is six feet in diameter
and 1!) feet long, with one Cornish
Hue three feet in, diameter. The
second boiler is also six feet in
diameter and lii feet long, with 81
tubes four inches in diameter, and
the next pair of boilers is six feet in
diameter, each 12 feet long, and
tubed as the others, making the
battery of six boilers and generating
all the steam for driving the ma
chinery and evaporating purposes of
the works. The mill consist of one
Putnam engine of 80 horse-power for
driving the rolls which are of Hono
inakc, three in number, size 30x00
inches, double-geared, with a ca
pacity of 20 tons per day. and now
averaging 1.") tons with ten hours'
work. Also, one engine of 20 horse
power for driving the double air-pump
to the vacuum pan, one engine of 8
horse-power for the lire-pump,
making in full 130 horse-power for
the engines alone.
Steam is also used for one Blake
pumps for the double elicct capacity
15 ton in ten hours. The two effects
have 1,000 square feet of heating
surface. Conner tubes and brass
heads. The vacuum pan has three
coils of three inch copper pipe taking
steam from the boilers at sixty
There are also two No. 3 Blake
pumps for feeding the boilers at a
temperature of 210 degrees Fahren
heit; one No. 3 Blake pump for
molasses ; one Gscrvicc pump, taking
juice from the mill to the claritiers
at a speed of about 35 gallons per
minute ; one No. 5 Knowlcs pump
to supply the double effect tanks;
one pump of same size for scum
press ; one No. 1 Blake pump for
taking syrup to the double effect,
and one work pump of 00 gallons
per minute for the boiling room.
There are six claritiers of 500
Imp. gallons each, using direct
steam from the boilers, one cleaning
pan with a 2-inch coil, one blow-up
tank with 1-inch pipe, using live
steam from the boilers ; one 10-inch
lathe and large pipe-cutter.'
buildings consist of one
130 feet' long by 53 feet
wide: sugar room, 110x25 feet;
boiler house, 80x40 feet ; one chimney
of iron 5 feet in diameter and 85
The comparative diiferencc or
gain in Jarvis patent setting of the
same boilers over the usual or the
compound setting is found to average
in this mill for 105 days steady run
and producing in the above time
1,400 tons of sugar from the burning
of wet trash, and about 50 cords of
wood, an average of one-half cord
per day, against the burning of all
dry trash at the average cost of $-100
per month for the labor in drying
and the monthly consumption of 50
tons of coal and about six cords of
wood, which for the above 105 days
run would make the additional cost
of 230 tons of coal and about 40 cords
oi wood for the same length of run
ning time. The average quantity
of wet trash more than necessary for
making all steam used in the mill is
about equal to two days run of mill
We most, cordially invite the
planters and sugar manufacturers to
see our furnaces and to judge for
themselves of the difference in the
Jarvis and the common or compound
setting of steam boilers.
MORE GAS LIGHT.
Editok Bulletin: My object in
using your valuable space about gas
companies, was only to raise an alarm
about a possible monopoly, and at
this moment when monopolies seem
to creep out on every side to threaten
the existence of the whole commu
nity, I shall certainly not bo mis
judged by the public. However, I
wish it distinctry understood that I
have no personal motive nor any in
Icicst whatever in the gas matter,
but that my only incentive was the
public good. And consequently had
Mr. Elmore, in his answer Wednes
day gentlemanly confined himself to
facts only, his argumentation would
have been far more to the point, and
I would not have answered a single
word. But in presence of the light
he attempts to throw on it, I now
you to nllow me to stale a few
brief points :
1st. It always seems a sill) and
aggravating thing (to the party in
terested) to see independant men
express their unbiased opinions on
"silly" schemes which si f angers try
to impose on a confiding and unex
2nd. 1 do not know whether Mr.
Levy is a friend of mine or not, in
fact T was not even aware of there
being any Levy in the scheme and T
pity him whoever he may be. But
even if my own brother was engaged
in a "silly" enterprise, I should
think it my duty to let him know all
the more my opinion about it
3rd. Mr. Elmore's' high sounding
phraseology has not brought out any
single fact, any business Mkc Jiynrcs
or proof about the practicability of
his scheme and of cheap gas; but
what is evident, is that he is not
able to deny, what 1 said, that all
through the world, the communities
who have "sillily" allowed the mono
polies the tyranny I still call it of
gas companies to grow over them arc
now striving to rid themselves of the
yoke. Is it. not then the reverse of
"silly" to ask the Government here
not to commit at the eleventh hour
the mistake so bitterly felt else
where? I Hi. As for Mr. Elmore's sweep
ing accusation of untruth, it is too
well no, I shall only say it is of
no avail whatsoever in the minds of
'wise' men "who know," and if
necessary I can apply to. several
gentlemen here who can certify to
what I said, that in all well adminis
tered communities, the gas franchises
are only granted.on the express con
dition that at the expiration of the
stipulated time the whole works
revert as property to the Govern
ment. Mr. Elmore had better go
abroad a little to see what is done
outside of "the Pacific Coast."
Further, in what relates to my
studying the gas business. 1 must
gratefully decline the help he kindly
proffers, for it happens that I did
study that business and perhaps
knew all about gas companies long
before the promoter of the future
Honolulu Gas Works was able to
distinguish gas light from a rush
light. But all this is really of no
account in the question.
All L wanted was to warn our
Legislators against allowing a gas
company to impose their moiiopoly
here at the expense of the public,
and 1 am glad to hear that Mr.
Elmore and his supporters arc sud
denly growing so very modest that :
1st. The' will not even think of
asking for a subsidy from the Gov
ernment or the public. 2nd. That
they will not use their privilege, if
the' do get it, for forcing Govern
ment and public to burn exclusively
their gaseous compounds. 3rd.
That they only "want to put up a
few lights as a private experiment
for enabling the. public to find out
the position of the present lantern
post;" how considerate! 4th.
That they deplore the error of a poor
typo's making may into shall; we
know that printers haye good shoul
What I wanted, was also to pre
vent the Government from commit
ting the folly of allowing a monopoly
to stand in our way, by binding the
future of this community for years
to come in such a way, that as gas
companies have done wherever they
have had the power it would after
wards be impossible to adopt any
other method of illuminating our
streets without having previously to
buy out the gas company at their
own valuation, and it would be a
consolation for me to be able to
infer from Mr. Elmore's statements
that ho promises to quietly Bhut up
shop without indemnification when
ever any thing better is found to
supersede his gas.
I further wished to avoid seeing a,
gas company here cutting up all our
streets for laying their pipes, when
it is a scientific undeniable fact, that
electricity, or perhaps, as a "silly"
witticism has it, "some other now
invention which is now in my brain,"
will ere very long have exploded all
In all these, points, I think I have
done my duty towards the commu
nity and towards schemers whom I
don't know; and if Mr. Elmore or
his friends have any real practical
information to adduce, they ought
to address it to the Parliament and
not to me, as I have no interest in
the matter and cannot be "illumi
nated" by them. Consequently
whatever more the gaseous gentle
men might feel obliged to say to tlje
public I decline to tako any further
notice of, as 1 am satisfied of this
much : "caveanf ronsulcs.
A le-printed copy of a letter ad
dressed to me twenty years ago, by
Mr. John Thomas Waterhouso Sour,
having been circulated yesterday, 1
beg to state that neither the re
printing nor the circulation of it,
has been aided or abetted, sanctioned,
approved or authorized by me in any
way, cither directly or indirectly. I
have been on friendly terms with Mr.
Watcrhousc and all his family since
that date, and if I had not been, I
should not think for a moment, even
if 1 possessed the right which I do
not of taking up a matter which
had been finally settled between us
years ago by that very letter. I am
not aware whether the law can res
train or punish any one who may with
malice aforethought, print or circu
late mifre than the prescribed 100
copies of this letter, but from the
point of view of ordinary fairness,
in the feuds which may arise between
any man and Mr. Waterhouso, a re
printed copy of this document, is
not a weapon which even 1 a princi
pal party concerned, still less a
third party can be honorably
entitled to use. W. L. Ghuex.

Editor Bulletin: Having care
fully considered the New Bank Char
ter' I am impressed with its striking
advantages to the public, and would
suggest that these advantages wouldbe
greatly multiplied by merely exten
ding the privileges of this charter to
every Hawaiian citizen.
Let every man who has the where
withal to purchase bonds do so,
deposit them, draw interest, and
issue his personal notes for an amount
fully equal to the bonds. The notes
would be secure, have they not the
bonds behind them? Every man
could double his wealth in a jiffy,
and the only people to complain of
so national a plan would be those
impecunious wretches who could get
no bonds to start with.
