These islands arc gradually losing
their primitive aspect and customs,
through the improvements steadily
effected by the increase of commerce
and the consequent centring and
aggregation of the inhabitants in
various localities. One lcsult of this
has been the steady increase, in size
and population, of Honolulu. Gra
dually the needs of the business com
munity have forced one improvement
after another upon the attention of
the Legislature, but much remains
to be done before Honolulu, as a
city, will compare favorably with
cities in other lands. One of the
most recent efforts at legislation pre
vents the election of any but lire
proof buildings, within certain limits
in the town, and, although this was
a step in the right direction, it needs
to be supplemented by another law
preventing the over-crowding of
buildings together in any part of the
'" city. Most of the buildings in the
over-crowded parts of Honolulu arc
flimsy wooden structures, opening
on nniiow and tortuous alley ways,
and packed very closely together.
- Recently, a suit was entered by one
party to obtain a right of way to
and from his dwelling, which from
the increase of buildings round his
house had been entirely cut off from
him. Apart fiom ,tho danger to life
and property, in such neighborhoods,
in the event of a serious lire break
ing out, as was instanced during the
recent fire on Nuuanu street, other
V dangers, equally as serious to the
community, exist. The filth and dirt
which have accumulated in such
parts of the city form a hotbed for
' the engendering and spreading of
epidemic diseases, and should bucli
a disease break out in one of those
localities it would make sad havoc
'amongst its teeming population.
- Again, it is a settled fact, not only
in Honolulu but in all cities, that
such quarters arc chosen as the
homes of the immoral, indecent and
criminal members of the population,
. where they herd together to lead
s their vicious lives, or plan their cri-
s. minal deeds, to the detriment of the
v more respectable members of the
, community. Kvcry large city in the
', world has found out the evils of
! . over-crowding buildings, in certain
! 'quarters of their precincts. "Wo may
"instance London, New York and
& Sydney, as giving recent examples
b' of the results of investigations into
lathis evil. And many legislative
lbodics, in consequence, either have
f- passed, or arc about to pass, laws
A which will restrain and mitigate these
dangers to the wealth, health and
ifc moral spirit of a community. No
frioiic who has lived for any length of
Intirne in this community but will
jfngrco with us that the evils indi-
enlcrt are minpanl hare, If n (lie
weic to Inonk mil and got a good
hold in 1 lie tllsliicl liiiiimlcd by
iMUiuiui stream on one Hide,
Xuuaiiii .street, Beiulania street, and
the Fish Market on the oilier sides,
how many hundreds of thousands of
dollars would disappear from the
wealth of the country? If an epi
demic disease were to break out in
that districts, what possible chance
would there be of quarantining it
and confining it, before it destroyed
its hundreds, pci Imps its thousands
of ieliins? Any ineinlior of the
police force will tell us that the
same district contains the haunt of
a majority of the vicious and crimi
nal population of Honolulu. Noth
ing has as yet been done to restrain
or remove these evils in Honolulu,
but wc think the Board of Health and
tho Fire Department have power to
lessen, somewhat, these evils. The
clearance made by the recent Hie on
Xuuanu street gave an opportunity
to refuse permission for thc'iccon
slriielion of that spot into its old
state, hut, judging from the evi
dences of rebuilding going on, those
bodies did not think any action was
necessary. Perhaps when the evils
mentioned cannot be restrained, or
the dangers compensated for, they
will, as the old proverb says, en
deavor " to lock the door when the
steed is stolen."
AN IMPOTENT CRITIC.
The outside writer of one of the
Honolulu letters that grace the
columns of the Saturday I'ress
compiles in to-day's issue of that
journal a column of what he deems
to be errors of grammar and faults
of composition in the Daily Bulle
tin for ten days. The editor seizes
upon the oppoituuity, afforded by
this exhibition of literary criticism
on tho pait of his yoke-fellow, to
inform the public, in effect, that
while it and wc regarded the literary
skirmishing between the two papers
for the past few days as only a
sham fight, he was in wrathful
earnest all the time and meant noth
ing but real, cruel war. Both the
editor and the doughty critic who
gives him such able assistance in
filluig'his space venture all upon
the assumption that the editor of
this paper set himself up as one
born to put right the disjointed
world of newspaper literature. Noth
ing of the kind was deducible from
our part in the skirmish, our only
offences, until our contemporary in
vited retort, having been to repro
duce a most comical typographical
blunder in one of his paragraphs and
to place end to end an cgotistica
boast made by the editor of the
Press regarding his literary ability
and a very suitable rebuke to such a
boast which appealed in the same
issue of that paper, from the pen of
the correspondent who has now had
a hard week's labor in trying to
hunt up literary faults in a ten days'
fill of the Bulletin. As to the
result of the ciitie's efforts, how
ever, wc arc safe in saying that, if
lie has selected the worst of what
can be justifiably called breaches of
literary canons which have occurred
in our columns during the past ten
days, the Bulliin lias come nearer
to literary perfection for that period
than any English daily paper in the
world. Notwithstanding the gicat
advantage a weekly paper has over a
daily for procuring accuracy, owing
to the necessarily hurried prepara
tion of the matter for the latter, wc
could, if there was any amusement
in it for our readers, fill as much
space with our contemporary's lite
rary shortcomings of a day, dis
covered upon casual reading, as our
critic has required to display what
he, in many cases ignorantly, regards
as our mistakes of ten days, which
have cost him severe toil to find.
It would take more space .than wc
can afford to defend the specimens
he gives from our columns, but,
with the exception of two or three
very slight slips, wc arc willing to
submit all of them to the best lite
rary jury that can he got in Hono
lulu and justify them. Any compe
tent person who takes tho trouble to
procure the criticism and analyze it
will perceive that it is mainly founded
upon its author's ignorance of the
scope of the words and phrases he
carps at and of the best current lite
rary usage, and also upon his dis
honest detachment of sentences from
their connection. The editor calls
It vivisection of us, but if lie called
it an unsuccessful attempt at but
chery he would be mole piocino

thing good of this sort for eveiy
Tho I'ress calls a provision of the
Constitution an "exploded belief."
It is not a belief; it is a fact. If
our conl emporary advocated a
change in the Constitution, wc could
understand it and perhaps co
operate with it. When, however, it
essays to trample the Constitution
under foot, wc and all but unipty
talking filibusters arc bound to take
issue with it.
Factories for putting up fruits and
pickles, besides enlarging the domes
tic labor market and increasing our
exports, would greatly conduce to
the pleasures of Hawaiian life by
cheapening table luxuries. An essen
tial to experiments in that direction
is to have them conducted by capa
ble and experienced men from similar
establishments abroad. With all
our organizations there is room hero
for an Association for the promotion
of home industry, and wc would
suggest that a public meeting should
,hc held at an early day to consider
the matter. Perhaps the Chamber
of Commerce will take it under its

only one instance out of scores that
could be produced'every day on our
principal streets. We call upon the
Deputy-Marshal to take means to

A CHANCE FOR WORD HUNTERS.
Kihtoii Bulletin : If more than
nine hundred correct answers to the
following poorly constructed what-you-may-call-it
arc rushed in upon
you within two hours after its pub
lication in your paper, please inform
me of it as promptly and quietly as
possible, so that I may have an op
portunity ere it be too late for seek
ing a safe retreat in one of our
mountain gorges, far removed from
the busy haunts of grasping human

mind I do not think I could stand
an unlimited amount of rough usage
at the hands of an excited and un
apprceiativc populace. Another
reason which I have for guarding
against unmerited violence lies in
the fact that there is a certain
thirty-year old young lady to whom
my personal welfare is a matter of

I am feared by the rogue, to the patriot
And to soldiers I bring satisfaction.

What a foul, lllthy object yon make
Yet when served up in style I'm a tooth

Although I am lllthy when first I am

To get mo strict church folks will break

And thousands warm life-blood will
Curtail me again, and I am an act
Which I know you would not liko to
Yet all pcoplo do It, for fate ordains,
And I make no exception of you.
