The vacations arc nearly over,
and the steady work of the year is
gradually being resumed by the
sturdy toilers of our city ; but a few
words on summer resorts may not
be out of place as a preparation for
the next season of rest. 3Iany, in
deed, of our toilers never have occa
sion to visit such places, for, the'
say, they cannot find a suitable spot
without leaving the Islands. Much
money, that ought to bo spent hero
where it is earned, is hoarded up
and then spent on a trip to the Coast
with far less beneficial results, and a
larger expenditure of time and
money, than would have followed
from a trip round this Island, or a
visit to the other Islands.
Now many there arc in this city
who know literally nothing, from
practical experience, of the tropical
beauties of our Island home its
densely-wooded valleys, fairy falls,
silent pools, cool summits, myste
rious caves, or fiery furnaces. How
few have enjoyed reposing on the
glittering sandy beach under the
shade of a palm and watched the
surf rollers, giant sea-horses, come
in to the strand with their musical
thunder and bearing on their rolling
bosoms the dusky forms of the
Some have enjoyed these pleasures
face to face with Nature in its most
beautiful and soothing aspects, but
many have contented tliemsclvcs with
reading about it in books or hearing
, '-talcs of it from the lips of those more
fortunate than tliemsclvcs in worldly
goods who have been able to afford
the time and money to go on such
"Why is this? Why have not more
enjoyed the numberless pleasures
with which bountiful Nature has
endowed our happy Island on 'every
hand every spot presenting some
fresh beauty, some novel delight not
to be found elsewhere.
The answer is simple. It is be
cause they fear the expense and pos
sible discomfort, and do not know
where to go. But these objections
arc easily disposed of. To take the
last one first, in this Island alone
there arc hundreds of spots suitable
for parties and families wishing to
spend the summer vacation: Niu
with its sleep cliffs and beautiful
mountain ravines, Waimanalo with
its busy life and myriad bathing
' places, Kancohc with its lovely bay
and islands, Waikanc with its cool
gulches and pleasant streams, Kaa
awa with its beautiful beach, Kahana
,with its unending valley, Waiinui
and Waialua with their diversified
scenery, Wniannc, Ewa, Waipio,
Pearl River and its archipelago.
Aye and others unnamed, none of
which arc over 510 miles away from
the city, arc full of delights which
, even the oldest kamaaina can tako
fresh pleasure in.
; As for the expense, that will be
found trilling, unless the tourist
A wishes to carry along the contents of
his own home or tp be served as in a

mentioned can be easily tonolictl by
travellers on borne-back and almost
cveryono can be attained on the

they want with them or have them
sent down by schooner from Hono
lulu. As for houses, many of the
places mentioned have vacant houses
which could be rented, in tho others
some native or foreigner can always
bo found ready to grant the tf-c of a
room or two or more at a fair price.
And many, perhaps, would prefer to
tako along a tent and camp out.
Some of our most sensible citizens
have nlrcady adopted these plans
and to them wc refer our readers for

Some Chinese merchants in San
Francisco arc credited with believ
ing that a good thrashing from
France would do China good. It is
held that it would take out of the
nation the conceit its rulers have
always cherished that it is invulner
able. A thorough trouncing by tho
French would teach them that they
could never hold their own against
foreign aggression until rapid com
munications between all parts of the
Empire by railway were established.
The railways built with that object
would have the effect of civilizing
the country according to modern
ideas and thoroughly developing its
The Daily Hawaiian talks of the
degeneration of the practice of
giving offerings of (lowers to singers,
from the original spontaneous shower
of such fragrant, materialized ap
plause to the artificial, stupid and
ludicrous mode of sending a boy on
to the stage with the floral tributes,
according to arrangements made
beforehand. The latter is the style
adopted hero, but how it holds is a
wonder, for it is only laughed at in
Music Hall. "What often adds to
its ridiculousness is that the flower
bearer conies on the boards after
efforts that the audience show less
appreciation of than anything else
on the programme.
The San Francisco Merchant has
an atticlc impressing upon Califor
nia the importance of tho commer
cial treaties with 3Iexico and Ha
waii. It says: "Our exports to
the Islands have increased in ten
years from less than $700,000 a
year to almost S.rj,000,000. The
carrying traffic is done almost ex
clusively by American vessels. A
return to tho old-time 700,000 ex
ports with the decrease of 81,000,
000 would bo sorely felt in Califor
nia, and it is the Reciprocity Treaty
that has built up the steady growth
of tliis very important trade." The
Merchant emphasizes its plea for the
Treaty by showing how American
influence of men and money in these
Islands is identified with their in
terests. Look on this picture: "The only
request wo have to make is that every
man who endorses the stand of the
Saturday Press for honest and
economical government and for the
use of newspaper English that is
vigorous, without being inelegant
shall emphasize his endorsement by
sending a chequo for the amount of

Saturday Press. And on this:
"There is ono other nuisance I'd
like to dissect. It is your verbal
critic the fellow who thinks he

The Rev. 3Ir. Rcckwlth, of San
Francisco, who visited these Islands
in June after an absence of twenty
five years, has been lecturing in his
church upon what he observed and
the changes that had taken place In
that period. Among certain things
that he said, which have excited the
ire of the Advertiser, was that,
whereas, twenty-five years ago,
when the sale of liquor to natives
was prohibited, a native was rarely
scon drunk, now, since the restric
tion has been removed, "the streets
of Honolulu reel with drunken
natives." This our contemporary
says is a "downright lie," and as
sures its readers, upon the authority
of a resident for over thirty years,
that there were fifty drunken natives
to be seen in the streets then to one
now. Until other old residents give
their evidence upon the question,
wc can only remark that, if there
were fifty times as many drunken na
tives on the streets twenty-five years
ago as to-day, Honolulu then must
have been the most drunken place
in tho world. "Whatever the rela
tive state of affairs is, however,
there is no use in hoping for any
reformation in the habits of the
native race until more stringent
measures arc taken for the reduc
tion of the abounding intemperance
among all other nationalities.
