.Sericulture, or the raising of silk,
1ms been mentioned as a possible
,, means of livelihood and wealth in
these Islands. There is an article
in tiie San Francisco Merchant,
urging the extension of the industry
in California. It would appear to
be largely a woman's occupation,
and the following hints and facts are
from the article in question: ' Like
butter-making and raising eggs it
must be prosecuted in many homes.
As river's are fed by countless small
streams, so .sericultuie, to become a
great state industry, must grow into
greatness from the smalt contribu
tions of thousands of industrious
women and children in their own
homes." "The women and children
of a family, with 50 or 100 trees of
two and three years old planted near
the house and properly trimmed,
' can easily make 8.r0. then 875. ?100,
u $200, and so on. A well-grown tree
will yield leaves enough to raise 3
or 81 worth of silk. One tree in
San Jose, fifteen years old, furnished
s leaves enough two years ago to pro
duce SI. "5 worth of handsome silk."
This a matter for that Society for
nthc Promotion of Home Industry,
the organization of which wc advo
cated the other day. It is also a
proper subject for the Planters' As
sociation, if wc judge from the
scope of its official organ.
TEMPERANCE AT THE BETHEL.
Last Sunday evening a special
temperance meeting was held at the
Bethel in place of the usual service.
It was preceded by a hymnal service
led very well by Mrs. Dillingham but
rather poorly followed, the audience
apparently being somewhat unfami
liar with a large part of the selection.
TheFc -was not a very large audience
present, more than half the sittings
The Nov. Mr. Mcrritt gave the
first address, his topic being the

.After alluding to other forms of in
temperance, including religious dis
sipation, he gave some interesting
', i figures regarding the effects of
( strong drink upon the human consti-
5 tution. According to the calcula
tions of actuaries, drinkers sacrifice
on an average 2!) years of their lives
to their indulgence. Between the
'ages of 15 and 20, only 10 abstainers
, die to 18 non-abstainers. Between
i'20 and 30, only 10 temperate persons
fey die to 21 intemperate. Between 30
r ' A.,,1 in li iinm..in ..,..,.. ,11,.

to 10 temperate. He also gave facts
showing tlml the chances of recovery
in eases of accident were very much
less in the case of diinkei.s than in
that of abstainers.
The Hew Mr. Bishop .spoke of the.
(Inaneial injury of drink. A round
million was expended annually by
these Islands for strong drink. The
indirect loss to employers of nil
kinds of labor through the dissipated
habits of their employees was very
Mr. Mason, (icneral-Secictary of
the. Y. M. C. A., spoke upon the
obligations of Christians regarding
the drink evil. He believed in gospel
temperance, and that efforts to re
claim drunkards which came short
of pointing them to the Saviour were
not worthy of Christians. Ho advo
cated, in effect, the boycotting of
liquor dealers, by stamping as un
christian the selling of ice, the paint
ing of signs, the advertising of busi
ness in short, the performing of
any service for those engaged in
the tralllc. There had been, be said,
over 822,000 paid over the liquor
bars of Honolulu within the past five
weeks. It had been ascertained by
the prison visitation committee of
the Association that 27 out of 05
denizens of the jail that day were
such through drink. lie asserted,
upon the bt length of personal obser
vation, that fifty per cent, of the
young men of Honolulu were fre
quenters of the saloons.
The Ilev. Mr. Oggcl gave the
closing speech, upon the relation of
intemperance to our future. The
great fact in regard to the subject in
the Xew Testament was that intem
perance would keep a man out of
the Kingdom of f Joil. "Near one of
the principal saloons there was build
ing a new police station, and lie held
it was "not business" for the au
thorities to license places for leading
men into temptation and expend
large amounts in providing prison
accommodation for them when tlfcy
fell under that temptation. There
wpre three things that he most
earnestly desired first, a now place
of worship for that congregation ;
secondly, a revival of religion over
the whole Island, and, thirdly, the
eradication of the liquor trafllc from
A patriotic "Hawaiian," in a
letter to the San Francisco Merchant,
calls attention of Californians to the
lack of fresh fruit in the Honolulu
market, and promises them good
prices here for the surplus of their
abundance. He also holds that
California wines ought to displace
those of other countries in tills
According to. the Guide,
Wilder, during his last visit to
waii, warned the. officers of
the Kinau that any employee of the Com
pany found to have ill-treated Chi
nese passengers by word or deed
would be dealt with according" to
law. We. have no knowledge ofltow
much or how little this lesson may
have been needed, but all the same
it is a wholesome one and a good
example to all in cither public or
Honolulu journalises might be
pardoned for sometimes betraying a
poverty of resources in filling their
sheets. What, however,' can be
thought of such a pretentious
journal in such a highly-favored
place as the AUu California, of San
Francisco, giving a column and a
half of advice as to the best methods
of committing suicide? As if the
selection of such a theme were not
disgraceful enough, its treatment is
marked with disgusting levity and
An analyit, whose reports on the
London water supply arc often
quoted, states, with an emphasis,
that "the "presence of normal,
healthy sewage in drinking water is
not injurious to health, its only effect
being to cause those who drink it to
become fat." That must be the
reason so many people in Honolulu
are fat. Our natural sewage sys
tem ought to afford the most normal
and healthy sewage. 'Whether the
sewage from tle cattle ranches in
the mountains in our reservoir
water, or that filtered through the
coral into our artesian wator, is the
more nutritious is a matter for in-
vestigalion. If tho consistency of
pea soup is a criterion, either would
pass inspection at times. At all
events, the discovery herein noted
must stagger the advocates of beer
as a producer of adipose tissue.
While the Interior Department is
experimenting upon methods for
getting "normal, healthy sewage"
into the proposed increase of the
water supply, lean people should
frequent the faucets and get tho
benefit of what limy have.
"The Massachusetts Bureau of
Statistics states Hint in 1878 the
chance of a person being killed on
or by steam ears was one in 5,020,
281. while in 1882 it had diminished
to one in 20,027,03 1. This is less
than the chance of being struck by
lightning, and much less than that
of being injured by a kerosene
lamp explosion." So says a para
graph in mi American paper, but wc
want to know what arc the chances
of u person being ridden over in the
streets of Honolulu, after deducting
the effect of the frequent fines in
our Police Court for reckless driving.
Wo take the unusual course to-day
of publishing a letter declined, a few
days ago. This is to satisfy its four
signers, who wrongfully attribute
misleading and unjust action to the
Bri.ixriN. It would have been as
well, wc thinlc, to have let well
enough alone, but as our correspon
dents insist otherwise wc willingly
give them space. At the same time
wc protest against having the matter
made one between Dr. Walters and
the editor of this paper. In the
first place, it was one between the
honorable noble and the doctor;
and, in the next, one between the
former and the Legislative reporter
of tliis paper. As to the former, it
was amicably arranged between the
parties, and as to tiie latter the re
porter, as editor, gave the honorable
noble ample justice in publishing his
version of his speech.
Correspondence is solicited on the top.

We do not hold our.-elves responsible
for the opinions e.piesscd by our cor.
Euitou Bl'm.utix: I wish it to
be distinctly understood that my ob
jection to Cabinet Ministers serving
on Hoards, indicated in my last com
munication, is not based on personal
grounds, but purely on principle. I
am not of those who believe that the
present Ministerial members of the
various Boards arc less capable, or
otherwise more unfit, than the aver
age citizen available for such posi
tions ; and have no sympathy with
the prevalent practice of substituting
men for measures, and covering
them with a garment of howls and
attacking them with a hurricane of
hisses, if the' chance not to be the
choice of everybody. Xo matter
who or what the Ministers are, they
should never, in my opinion, be
members of any of the Boards.
My reasons are chiefly these:
Ministers should be free to give their
entire time and attention to their
proper ministerial functions, such as
general oversight of the affairs of
the country ; the careful preparation
of measures aiming at the public
good, for legislative consideration
and action ; and the maturing and
carrying out of a national policy,
having reference to the future as
well as to the present. Even in a
little country like this, these arc
matters which, if attended to in pro
portion to their importance, will
fully tax the lime and capabilities
of Ministers. If so, why should
those Ministers be required to do
Board duty? Either Ministerial duty
or Hoard duty will be neglected, or
neither properly attended to, and a
weak, loose, inefficient government
bo the result. Besides, to compose
the Boards of Ministers, oi to put
Ministers on them as controlling
members, is placing the power and
responsibility of government into
too few hands. This is admitted in
modern political economy to be a
grave blunder, subversive of peace
and contentment, and therefore fatal
to stability. "Whereas, the opposite,
that is, the division of power and
responsibility among as many per
sons representing the people as pos
sible, has been found conducive to
the opposite effects. I cannot think
that the conditions and requirements
of this Kingdom arc so entirely
different from those of Great Bri
tain, and sonic other countries of a
limited monarchical form of govern
ment, that much of what has proved
a benefit to the Government and
people in them should not be equally
beneficial here ; but I sincerely be
lieve Unit reconstruction of our
Boards of Health, Immigration and
Education, on the plan indicated in
my last, would be n progressive step.
I have henrd it said that the pre
sent method of making up these
Boards largely of Cabinet Ministers
is a recent innovation, due to the
present Administration. This is true
only in part; for I believe I am cor
rect in saying that two of them were
previously tinder ministerial pre
sidency. Under the present Adminis
tration the old principle has certainly
been pushed to a greater extreme,
and herein a retrograde movement
lias been made, from which the
country has received a shock, the
evil effects of which arc not yet
fully apparent. As time rolls on.
and political bitterness gives way to
calm rcllection, and vaulting ambi
tion becomes aware that it has over
leaped itself and lies prostrate on
the other side, those concerned will
see their folly and bo convinced that
the truth was spoken by at least one
