THE ADVERTISER AND THE ME
CHANICS. Not content with eharacterizinir
the Lyceum meeting as a whole, as
sand-lotters, the Advertiser comes
out this morning and says that me
chanics generally, and Mr. John
Nott in particular, are not lit to pre
side over a meeting called by work-
ing men to discuss matters affecting
The Advertiser and its Bank Char:
tcr friends will find that the Lyceum
' sand-lotters, and the mechanics of
- Honolulu are fit to manage their
concerns ; that they know what honest
money is, and that California
sharpers, be they financiers or be
they newspaper men, can not run
the machine in Honolulu as they do
in monopoly ridden San Francisco.
Mr. Ashford voiced the sentiment
of every man present at the meeting,
when he said "we will talk so long
as talking is sufficient, but wo must
be prepared to maintain our rights
at all hazards."
This is not sand-lot talk. It is in
the spirit of 177C, and is the deter
mination of 1884, let those scoff and
ridicule who may.
THE ADVERTISER AND THE BANK
Tho part taken by the 1. G. Ad
vertiser in defending the promoters
of the Bank Charter scheme against
the universal sentiment of a whole
community, is an outrage upon com
mon decency; and its leader of yes
terday forever shakes off the dis-
T guise of independence under which
it first sought shelter. Here is ex-
', emplified and exposed in true nudity
the real meaning of some of the ob
scure professions which accompanied'
the bow of the new proprietor. It
was at first intimated that the paper
, was to bo conducted so as to make
it pay,- and it now looks as if the
Bank Charter men had arranged that
little mutter very satisfactorily,
otherwise it could not afford in
, the interests of a few intriguing
monopolists, to so grossly insult a
whole community us it has done
this, by characterizing its members
generally us Stuid-loltcrs, and its
representative men, who chance
to express their views before tin
orderly public meeting, as orators
of the Dennis ltearney stripe.
Is an able and trusted lawyer like
A. S. Haiiwcll or n well established
merchant and Vice-Consul of Great
Brittnin, like Thcophilus Davics.
both of whom have large property
interests in the country, to be styled
as low lived danayoytws because
they respond to the call of honest
workingmen and lift their Voices
against an iniquitous scheme of a
few foreign monopolists to govern
jiot only tho entire trade of the
Islands, but to rule the very nation.
Is a citizen of the recognized ability,
integrity, and .standing of Joseph O.
Carter, to be denounced as a
"blatherskite" for expressing in a
manly way his honest opinion upon
a great public question ; or arc the
respected proprietors of large work
shops employing large numbers of
hands, such as Alexander Young or
George Lucas, to bo charged as
abetters of "red cap business" be
cause they have not kneeled to
Sprockets and his ring, Tho great
question before the people to-day is,
whether or not the Bank Charter
monopolists shall be allowed to put
into effect any and every scheme
they may desire, regardless of every
consideration but their own personal
benefit. This question on one side
is represented by the Bank Charter
men and the publishers of the Water
house letter; on the other, it is
represented by more than nine-tenths
of all classes in the community.
SOMETHING WHICH THE REPORT OF
THE BOARD OF HEALTH DOES NOT
In commenting the other da on
the report of the Board of Health,
we spoke of it as being "especially
remarkable for what it does not con
tain." So long as he can confine
himself to generalities, or expatiate
upon his own good deeds and good
intentions, the stream of Mr. Gibson's
eloquence Hows on like some broad
and beautiful river. But so soon
as he approaches hard statistical
facts, and certain matters of histoiy
concerning which there is urgent
need of explanation, the stieam
suddculy contracts to the narrowest
dimensions or even disappears al
together. One of the subjects on which the
public would like information, and
have a right to expect it, is the in
surrection which occurred a few
months ago at the Branch Hospital,
against the person who calls him
self II. Van Giesen. This individual
appears to have been a protege of
Dr. Fitch, who imported him from
Kauai, and obtained his appoint
ment as superintendent of the es
tablishment, at Ivaknako. The fact
that the so-called Van Giesen was
living in open adultery with a native
woman, was well known to Dr.
Fitch. Whether this latter person
age, who is so much distressed at
the immoral condition of the settle
ment at Kalawao, considered this
fnpt as a special recommendation,
we arc not informed. At all events
it is quite evident that he regarded
it as no disqualification, and ac
cordingly we find him at all limes
and under all circumstances, in dis
regard of the plainest facts and in
defiance alike of public opinion and
common decency, backing up and
supporting his pet.
The feeling against Van Giesen
culminated during the session of tho
last Legislature, 1882, in a memorial
signed by a large portion of the
inmates of the hospital, charging
Van Giesen with immorality and
A committee of which Mr. Gibson
was n member, and we believe the
chairman, proceeded to the Branch
Hospital und made some kind of an
investigation during which the ac
cused party did his best to browbeat
the witnesses and even went so far
as to threaten, in his capacity of
special policeman, to arrest one of
These bullying fr(7ar appear to
have been successful. The superin
tendent was backed by Fitch, and
Fitch at that time was a power which
Gibson did not dare to displease.
The committee accordingly retired
from the field, and so far as wc can
learn, never made any report. The
whole tiling was quietly dropped and
the superintendent with the active
support of Filch and the passive
concurrence of Gibson, was left, to
work his sweet will among the fomnlo
members of the establishment.
The superintendent having received
this negative kind of indorsement,
things at the hospital went on
quietly enough so far as iho outside
public was aware for about a year
and a half. Then came another ex
plosion, the history of which 1ms
never been fully written, but of
which enough is known to cover the
management of the hospital with
indelible disgrace. This interesting
episode Mr. Gibson quietly ignores.
Doubtless he would like to have
others ignore it as well, but he will
find that an independent press is not
as easily manipulated as a Legisla
tive committee. The principal actors
in the affair having been got rid of
by shipping them off to Molokai, the
form of an investigation was gone
through with. Though every effort
was made to suppress the truth, and
though the investigation was con
ducted in entire subordination to
that end, the attempt was a failure.
The thing was so black that no
amount of official whitewash could
effectually cover it.
When we turn to Mr. Gibson's
report for some account of these
events and some explanation of mat
ters which so badly need explaining,
we find absolutely nothing. Tho
whole episode of the reign of the so
called Van Geisen as well as its
dramatic and disgraceful close, is
passed over in absolute silence. Not
even the remotest reference to the
matter can be found anywhere in the
JINKS AND BUMPS AT THE RACES.
The Bui.i.rnx Reporter awoke on
Wednesday morning, fairly bubbling
over with patriotism, and as everj'
true Hawaiian, the Legislators, and
everyone interested in 'horse flesh
were going to the races, he deter
mined to join hands with the other
distinguished members of the com
munity, and make the thing a suc
cess, instead of staying away, and
thereby casting a gloom over the
whole affair. So he went; but be
fore the programme was half
through, he wished from his boots
upwards that he had cut adrift from
the aforesaid distinguished members,
and allowed the gloom to settle. It
was hot and dusty and crowded,
and at intervals of about an hour,
three or four horses drapped in red
white and yellow blankets, came out
and waltzed up & down the track for
lf or . 20 minutes, while Father
Widemann and Judge Spreckels
amused themselves cveiy few min
utes by jerking on a bell rope.
The Reporter was debating in his
mind whether to go over to Hart's
and buy a spoonful of ice cream for
a quarter and run-the risk of being
choked with dust while eating it,
and then try to survive for the rest
of the afternoon, or whether to go
home and draw on his imagination
for a description of the balance of
the performance. lie had about
decided on the latter course, as his
imagination is unlimited, while his
patience is small in quantity and
poor in quality, when who should he
sec reclining in the shade of a Kaia
we tree but Jinks and Bumps.
They both looked rather put-me-in-my-little-bed-mother,
and the Re
porter had the warmest sympathy
for them, to tho extent of about
110 in the shade he thought. As
he sauntered along and sat down
under the same tree, Bumps was
saying so yon took dinner with Rex
last Friday, did you ? Well now, I
should smile. We had the biggest
kind of a little private jamboree all
to ourselves, me and Dave ; a regu
kind of time. Dave he can out
talk a diplomat when occasion re
quires, and everybody knows that
when I get started, its like a cart,
wheel cut loose and running down
What did you talk about? said
Blimps. Talk about! why, every
thing. Politics, religion, gossip,
Spreckels, Gibson; oh, me and
Dave we're at home on most any
subject; he's most generally posted
on the solid facts, anil I can always
fill up the chinks with gossip, Wo
went over the whole ground to
gether, and I fell sorry for him.
Says he to mc, "Jinks, it's fun
being King sometimes, but a good
deal of the time I think I'd like it
better if 1 was plain David Kala
kaua again, and the Queen was 'im
ply Kapiolani. Now there's that
follow Gibson, ho pesters the very
life out ol me; l mot it would he a
good thing for the country when I
put him in there, I did honest injun,
and seeing how everybody keeps up
such an everlasting whoop about
cabinet's changing so often, 1 (hot
I'd give him a fair show; I'm just
waiting now to see what kind of a
report that Iwuancc Committee will
bring in ; if they show that the
money ain't straight. I'll bounce
him instantly, He's gone back cm
mo every time. All he's done about
leprosy, is lo establish a great big
nest of it right here in town, and
then there i this coinage fuss. I
supposed ho had sense enough to
run the thing: but he's just made a
muddle of it, and so far as I can
see has put a couple of hundred
thousand dollars in Spreckels'
pocket and taken out of the Govern
ment's; and now here's this Bank
Charter thing which him and
Spreckels hatched up between 'cm.
They said it was just like the Amer
ican national banks, and I didn't
suppose they'd lie about it, and now
it turns out that they were trying to
grab everything. The only thing
that surprises me is that, they didn't
want the crown stored in the bank,
and ask me to come down and live
there, and have my meal's sent over
"How about this what John
Spreckels says about you having C.
S. branded on your back bone,"
says I. With that Dave, he looks
kind of wild, and he hits the table
with his fist and he says, "Mr.
John Spreckels will find out. and so
will his old daddy, that I have got a
back bone, and that it has got C. S.
branded all the way up and down it,
and that it means that they Can't

temptible Schemers will find that
they can't Come Some of the games
over me that they think they can,
and that I Can't Stand any more

poration Spreckels, and that their

they take me for a Constitutional

over town that the Bank Charter is
going through; no matter who snj's
no, and that I will sign it, that I've
yot to .sign it. Con-Sarn John D. ,
say I, he's got the cheek of his
father, without the brains to back it.
He needs some Condition Spowders
to tone up his Constitution Surely.
C. S. on my back bone! I guess
there is ! the Condemned Scalawags"
"Mr. Kalakaua," says 1, "it does
me proud to hear you talk so. It
touches my very liver. If them's
your sentiments, there ain't a man
in this town outside of the Bank
grabbers and their dupes and tools,
that won't stand by you and see
you through, and there's my hand
on it." With that, Dave he looks
gratified, and says he, " I think you
are a man of uncommon sense, Mr.
Jinks." Says I, "David, we's
twins, and don't you let it slip your
memory." Then I loft, and Dave
he had water hi his eyes, and he
watched me clear down to the gate.
I s'pose it did his heart good to see
a square friend after all tho syco
phants he'd had around him. Well !
let's got back to town, said Bumps,
and jumping into an express they
disappeared in the dust.
THE ANTI-BANK CHARTER RESOLU

Advertiser and the public at large
may know who the so-called sand

of a disturbance in these Islands,"
but the men who applauded at the
Lyceum, and who have signed these
resolutions, know what their rights

illegal coinage of one million dollars
of silver money and its introduction
into circulation, values have been
disturbed and exchange sent up to a
ruinous rate, and
