The indefensible imtnic of the act
of the EMsctilive in leuioving Col.
Allen fiom ofllce if shown by the
feebleiiosr. of the apologies put forth
for it, the weaklier of the replies
made to expressions of indignation
over it and the silence regarding the
strongest grounds of protest prc
..eiited against it. Indeed, the first
apology ventured invoked nf. se.veic
cotidemnation of the Government as
the moil bitter words its opponents
could employ. What else can be.
made of the praise of Col. Allen as
'a most able and intelligent ollleer,"
vho-e 'retirement shows that he
adhetus to principles long formed,"
and ivhu-u "strongest political oppo
nents are soiry to-day that his resig
nation was ever contemplated"
this praise, too, in connection with
the statement that "for sonic time
past" the ollieial in question "lias
not. been in accoid with the Govern
ment, and not in harmony with the
present Administration?" What
could bo more damning to a Govern
ment than to assert of it that ability,
intelligence, adherence to principles,
and the best repute among his
strongest political opponents are
attributes of an ollieial that fail to
place him in accord with it and in
harmony with its administration?
It amounts to saying that tiic Gov
ernment wants to have all the res
ponsible posts under it occupied by
men of imbecility and ignorance,
, devoid of principle and only es
teemed for their political value in
the hands of tlniir masters men, in
brief, whose woik is of a piece with
the blundering and corruption that
have i educed the finances' of the
, Kingdom to the chaotic slate
revealed by the Legislature's
Finance Committee. To-day the.
Advertiser has dropped its apo-
lojjetie tone, and makes a show
of defence for the Government in the
way of benscless carping at the
action of the Chamber of Commerce.
It asserts that the, resolutions of that
bodv are "purely political," not-
'' withstanding its disclaimer of intent
i'l. io take part in discussions of thnt
) clinrucU'r. It also repiesents the.
meeting of the Chamber as having
'bcen "summoned in a liolent hurry,"
" to take advantage of the little ex
citement occasioned by the dismissal
of Col. Allen." Does anybody be
lieve that it was the partisan feeling
that may be embodied in the mem-
" bcrship of the Chamber of Commerce,
which Instigated its prompt action
jin'tlio matter? Not a bit of iti ovou
jUlio conductors of tho Advertiser
know thai the business men of Ho
nolulu ate slow to be moved for fetich
purposes, and that only when the
commercial interests of the Kingdom
are menaced by politicians and their
scheming allies, as in the case of tlio
Hank Chatter and in the present one,
does the Chambct of Commerce take
a stand for or iigainsl the Govern
ment of the day. The removal of
the public! ollieial who has most to
do with the relations subsisting be
in ecu the Government and the com
mercial interests of the Kingdom
nhen that official has scived the
Government with unimpeachable in
tegrity and inspired the mercantile
community with the deepest and
most universal confidence is not a
puiely political matter, but one of
the gravest concern to the whole
business interests of the country.
Then the Advert her says that
"no mau can understand" the fol
lowing passage in the resolutions,
and immediately afterward emphat
ically contradicts "the insinuation
it eontains," oblivious of the ab
surdity of denying anything that
cannot be understood: "This is
but another step in the procedure
which has gradually withdrawn the
financial interests of the kingdom
from the control of men who have
by their long service won the confi
dence of the public." If our con
temporary does not understand this
plain assertion, those on whoso be
half it speaks understand it. They
know only too well the details of
the policy that rendered possible
the- pretty exhibition of the nation's
finances which was made at last
session. Well thev know the mani
pulation of the Hoards of Educa
tion, Health and Immigration to
subserve personal ends and ambi
tions. Yes, the removal of a com
petent and faithful Collector-General
to be substituted by, probably,
a creature of the present rulers is
only "another step" in the proce
dure that is fast making this King
dom miserable at home and despica
ble abroad. If the calm and seri
ous remonstrance of the Chamber
of Commerce has no effect in arrest
ing that step, the whole community
will have to combine, and that "in u
violent hurry," to utter a protest
thnt will at least cheek "the proce
dure" that is putting the financial
interests of the Kingdom in the
hands of knaves and tools.
From time to time we shall take
the pleasure of writing up the exist
ing industries of Honolulu. To-day
we give a description of one of our
nearest neighbors' establishment
the Honolulu .Steam Planing Mills.
This service we regard as one of the
most important functions of the
local newspaper, tending to develop
in citizens a pride in the achievements
of home industry, and attracting the
beneficial attention of foreign capi
taliits and tradesmen.
The Jewish New Year begins to
night. Its observance consists in
domestic devotions, social visitation
and interchange of gifts. In the
synagogue nt 10 o'clock in the
morningof the New Year, the day
is announced by blowing a Shofar
(trumpet), in' connection with which
public services are held. According
to Jewish law public services may
be held when a congregation of ten
men can be gathered, but that has
never been accomplished so far in
Honolulu. The Hum.iviin takes the
oppot Utility of wishing our Hebrew
fellow-citizens a happy new yenr.
Our double-starred correspondent
is properly severe on the Adverti
ser's unjustifiable attack on the
Arctic explorer, Grccly. It is atro
cious to call a man a murderer upon
the strength of u flimsy inference.
At the same time wo fear tlio letter,
printed elsewhere, misses its mark,
as the present editor of the Adver
tiser could never have written such
coarse slander as that criticized.
Neither do we believe that Air. Gib
son is responsible for nil the utter
ances of our contemporary, nor that
the animosities attributed, justly or
unjustly, to him could assume such
a grotesque form as the vulgar
assault on Grccly referred to.
The- stricture in the water service
has grown worse since the reference
wo mado to it the other day'. It
caino too suddculy to bo attributed
to drouth, and it appears to be as

bad in the caso of mountain as in
that of artesian water. In the
vicinity of this oillco the supply is
so scant as to make proprietors feel
very anxious over the possibility of
a lire starling. Air. "Wilson, Super
intendent of the Water-works, has
been ill for several days, which per
haps has something to do with
the trouble. The Clerk, who is
next to him in the department,
should investigate the matter and
have the causes of the inconveni
ence removed as speedily as possi
Honolulu has a handsome .Music
Hall, that stands most of the time
like the Temple of Janus in time of
peaceclosed. Probably it is wortli
while to have such n place for giving
audience to the foreign artists who
can be occasionally attracted hither.
Yet the community will not receive
the full measure of legitimate bene
fit from the institution unless it
develops sufficient local enthusiasm
in music and drama to permit its
being opened with frequent, regular
periodicity for displays of domestic
talent. That there is,abundaut talent
here for encompassing that end has
been proved by very creditable ama
teur performances given at remote
intervals by vaiious associations for
the benefit of laudable objects. Can
not the Honolulu Dramatic Club,
the Symphony Club and the Ama
teur Alusical Society, singly or
collectively, undertake to give us a
series of popular entertainments at
an eaily date?
HONOLULU STEAM PLANING MILLS.
lYomincnt among the principal
industrial establishments of Hono
lulu stands the concern named in
the heading to this descriptive ai ti
de. It is situated on an irrcgulaily
shaped site near the foot of Fort
street, almost close to the vaiious
steamship wharves. The front meas
ures about 1.10 feet, and a portion
of the lot is 200 feet deep, the re
mainder about half that depth.
Everybody here, however, knows
the spot, for the clock tower, visible
at great distances on all sides, is one
of the city's chief laiidm'nrks, and
its dials, brightly illuminated at
night, are the great regulators of all
who make a nolo of time in their
incomings and outgoings.
Having visited the snug and well
appointed olllee in a corner of the
main brick building, the Bui.m'tix
representative was escorted all over
the place by Air. .1. Simmons, the
genial book-keeper of the establish
ment, and afterward meeting the
energetic and urbane proprietor, Air.
George Lucas, was shown the work
ing of the more delicate machinery
by that gentleman.
On the. ground floor of the main
building arc band, buzz and jig saws,
planer, lathe, and shapcr. They are
making delightful music to the utili
tarian car. Indeed, the moaning of
the saws yield cadences of such deli
cate crescendo and diminuendo as
would not discredit the great Rom
cnyi's fiddle. At the rear is the
engine room, where a 70 h. p. Put
nam engine, latest style, with tireless
energy makes things hum all over
the place. There, on the wall, is
the electric bell connected with the
Survey Department in the Govern
ment Building. The whistle cord
depends from the ceiling, and the
fireman takes hold of it a minute
before twelve, noon, awaiting the
signal to wake the echoes with the
shrill intimation of the sun's arrival
at the meridian. In a shed outside
there is u band saw of so versatile n
capacity that the production of
veneer as thin as papor or of deals a
foot or more thick is all the same
On the second lloor the fitting
room is entered, where doors, sashes,
blinds, etc., arc put together. This
room also contains the flue machines
for making blinds, which are so
ingenious that the human hand has
only left to it the function of being
a lender to them. Even tlio little
wire staples hiugcing the rod to the
middle of the slats aro put in and
linked by a machine. Hero is a
place, for melting gluo by steam and
there a chest wiiero the same agent
dries lumber in fact, no labor
saving contrivanco is omitted that
can be supplied.
Entering the second building
that adorned with tho clock the
iron street door opens into :; spa
ciouf. store-room for lumber, comont,
corrugated iron, lime and building
supplies generally, which nro on salo
in cither wholesale or ictail quanti
ties. The most noticeable object at
this visit was the handsome slx-oarcd
boat just bought by His Alajcaly,
which rested softly on canvas
cushions on the floor. This building
is of cemented brick and fire-proof,
on ils second floor n large workshop
and store-room combined, together
with n smaller store-room for hard
ware, mountings, etc.
Ascending a flight of steps in the
tower above the second story a
beautiful object is encountered in
the shape of a handsomely mounted
telescope, which brings the grand
mountain and ocean scenery closo
under the eye and through which,
now, is seen the sublime spectacle
of a gallant vessel, away in tlio
offing, breaking her way at a furious
pace through billows that enrobe her
hull in cvcr-cliangiug foam. From a
gallery at this level n magnificent
view of the land and water environs
of Honolulu is obtained, which the
writer lias not the geographical or
topographical knowledge to des
cribe. Up another flight and the remark
ably simple as well as pretty mecha
nism of the Scth Thomas tower clock
is seen. It is connected by cords
witit the other simple mechanism
moving tho hands over the dials on
a still higher level. The clock and
the various buildings are lighted
with gasoline made on the premises
by the most approved apparatus, an
automatic device pumping the illumi
nant to the burners away up in the
These mills have been established
five years, and in brisk times employ
200 hands, the present poy roll num
beiing about 150, about three-fourths
skilled workmen. They are there
fore a most important factor in the
industrial and commercial life of
Honolulu and a great credit to the
enterprise and push of their pro
prietor. That his business may in
crease and himself have good health
and every blessing is the wish of
