DR. DAMON'S TRAVELS.
Damon delivered a discourse
to his old congregation in the Bethel
Union yesterday morning. It was
mainly an account of the evidences
of civil and religious regeneration iu
Japan, observed by him in his recent
travels. A large congregation was
assembled, filling all the scats in the
body of the church. The preacher
selected his text from Ezckiel 21st,
" I will overturn, overturn, until ho
shall come whose right it is to
reign." While revolutions were rife
iu China and Japan, there was a
striking contrast between the two
empires in recent times, China being
stationary and Japan progressive..
An embassy had recently been sent
out from the latter to make observa
tions upoii the governments and
religions of other countries. Japan
had abolished Shinduism and Budd
hism as the national religions and
adopted Christianity instead. A
hundred thousand Japanese now
speak the English language, and the
Empire contains 2.V1.VJ schools with
2,102,902 pupils. The Government
has established a university at Tokio
upon the lines of similar institutions
in the most advanced countries, and
various Christian missions arc start
ing colleges. Normal schools, naval
schools, etc., are also sustained by
the state. Missionary societies main
tained schools everywhere with as
able tcaclieia as could bo found in
any purl of the world, and Dr.
Damon found schools for girls iu all
the cities he visited. At Kiota the
American Board was erecting a largo
brick qdificc. AVhilc thesis educa
tional works (rc going on, the Gov
ernment is busily engaged iu reform
ing the political system. The civil
and penal laws are to be recodified,
and the Mikado and his Ministers
arc laboring earnestly at the work of
' reform in all departments. A revi-
-sion oi ircaiies wiui lurcigu countries
is now being striven for, as for the.
'most part these compacts had been
p imposed upon the Empire in its
weak days iu forms disadvantageous
to her. America was disposed to do
. Justice iu this matter, but tlio Euro-
kj, pcan Powers were rcluctantto depart
fc, - .from the rule that "might makes
.right." Iu tlii connection tho
preacher enlogized the efforts of
' BUUU lllUVllllUll BUIlUSIUUIl US XV1VM-
arils, Judd, Allen, Wyllle and Lee
which resulted in the rights of this I
Kingdpm being maintained in deal
ings with powerful nations. Japan
is struggling to maintain her inde
pendence, and that without calling
in any foieigu aid. She invited for
eign professors and Instructors to
show her how to construct ship,
railways, telegraphs, and modern
improvements generally, but was
dispensing with their services as
Japanese could be found competent
to Till their places. In Mils the
preacher considered the Empire was
justified, as it was important to the
future of the people that, so far as
possible, they should work out the
problem of civilization for them
selves. Dr. Damon closed with
lcsume of Christian progress in
Japan. A conference of mission
aries was held there in 1883, at
which twenty-two different mis
sionary societies, of America and
Europe, were represented. One
hundred and six male and female
missionaries were repqrtcd, and oil
Christian churches with a member
ship approaching 0,000. The Chris
tian Sabbath was observed with pio
pricty, and Sabbath schools were
rapidly increasing. In sonic places
shop-keepers who refused to close up
on Sunday were avoided by cus
tomers on week-days. The transla
tion of the New Testament has al
tcady been completed. His obser
vations made him quite sure tiiat
Japan was soon to take her stand
among the most civilized nations.
Shu was aspiring to the high honor
of leading Eastern nations in Chris
tianity and civilization.
Another letter from ''Patriot" on
'"Government Boatds," iu this
issue, is worthy of thoughtful consi
deration. It is evident that tome
.system must before long be adopted
to relieve the national Government
from the administration of district
affairs. A good rule for the division
of services would be to have the
Government represented on nil
Boards that would have the disburse
ment of national subsidies.
Again has the political guillotine
been put to use, and Marshal 1'aikc,
the faithful, cfilcicnt and popular
public servant of thirty years, loses
his ollicial head. It appears that the
throat made in the Advert her last
week, and repudiated the day after
it appeared, must have been inserted
at the instigation of the Ministry
during the temporary inattention of
the responsible editor. A Govern
ment is pretty low that has to have
its policy and intentions smuggled
into a carelessly-conducted news
paper iu that manner. As the arti
cle in question said the Government
would dismiss whom it pleased, and
whom it pleased retain, brooking no
inteifcrcnce, the community will of
course stand meekly by and sec
every elllcicnt head in the civil
service roll in the dust.
Correspondents is .solicited on the top.
h" of the day, or what may become so.
We reserve the light to excKe purely
Wo do not hold ourselves responsible
for the opinions expi pcd by our cor.
Ennon Bi'i.i.kti: I have heard
an objection raised to 1113' view of
making up our Boards of men not
in Cabinet positions, and each Board
of a different set of men, on the
ground of insufllciency of material,
or, in other words, lack of a suffi
cient number of competent men
willing to act. I am not prepared
to allow this objection tlio force
claimed for it by its author. These
Boards do not require men of great
abilities or extraordinary attain
ments. Men of sound common
sense, backed by respectability, in
tegrity, energy, and patriotism,
would satisfactorily meet the de
mand and bo equal to tho situation.
Is there such a dearth of citizens
answering to this description that so
ninny as a dozen and a quarter can
not be found in this city or tho en
tire Kingdom? Surely wo have not
readied so low a stage of mental
destitution, inertness, corruption
and degeneration. No doubt, if
men of any one particular shade of
political bias be desired tho task
will not bo so easy. But these
Boards are not political bodies, or
ought not to be. I see 110 good rea
son why men of any and every
phaso of political conviction may
not faithfully and conscientiously
serve their country in the capacity
of Board members, whatever Min
istry may chance to be in power.
Holding this view, I do not think it
impossible. ,or even difficult, to
select a stilllcicnt number of suita
ble men willing to act.
The question may be asked,
should these Board-) bo paid bodies?
I say, decidedly, no. Of course,
executive officers are needed, nnd
must bo paid. But they should be,
as now, servants, and not members,
of the Boards. A position that has
a salary attached to it naturally
excites the desire of needy, selfish,
and unprincipled aspirants; where
as, a position that demands service
without emolument is much more
likely to secure patriotic and public
spirited incumbents. It cannot be
reasonably expected that men will
neglect their own private business
affairs to attend to public matters,
neither should it be required of
them. All Board meetings can be
held iu the evenings, after business
hours, as is usual in some other
countries, and Board duty per
formed without neglecting private
affairs. A man who is unwilling to
render his country a service, wheth
er it be the country of his birth or
tho country of his adoption, unless
he receive an equivalent in dollars
and cents, lacks the patriotism
which should imbue the heart of
every citizen. One of the evil tend
encies of modern representative
government is to place a money
value on all public positions, and
this frequently leads to bribery and
other forms of corruption, and these
to the choice of unlit men who would
otherwise never be considered eligi
ble. Indeed, I am strongly inclined
to the belief that it would be well
even to extend the non-payment
system so as to include members of
the Legislature, then the country
would probably suffer less from
crude and mischievous legislation.
Another question arises, as to the
best method of selecting members
of Boards. Should they be elected
or appointed? Most people accus
tomed to popular representative
government probably prefer election.
But this method is not always free
from objections and abuses. The
best men are not invariably chosen.
One thing, however, can bo said in
its favor, that in the event of an
unwise choice being made tho
electors have themselves only to
censure. There arc also objections
to selection .by appointment. But
I, for one. am rather, inclined to
favor this method, as being belter
adapted to our peculiar conditions.
It seems to me that the King, sub
ject to the advice of the Cabinet or
the Privy Council, should be en
trusted with the appointing power.
1'. S. Since tho foregoing was
written, 1 am pleased to sec the sub
ject of "Boards" taken up and
calmly discussed by the Advertiser,
and the views expressed in my two
former communications, in the main,
THE HOTEL STABLES.
The new Hawaiian Hotel stables
on Hotel 6trcct, directly opposite the
Hotel, arc completed and a decided
ornament to that locality. Tho car
riage house, which formerly stood
there alone, has been removed to the
Richard street side of the lot. The
new stable which faces Hotel street
is a commodious and well ventilated
structure, containing thirteen large
stalls, with harness room, olllcc, etc.
It sits back one hundred feet from
the street and is approached by a
circular, driveway, leaving a half
circle in front for tho standing or
depot for all the carriages, thus not
causing any obstruction of the side
walk. Two magnificent lamps at
either end give amplo light to its
approach. A very neat fence has
been erected around it, giving it
somewhat the appearance of any
place of its kind found in San Fran
cisco. Thirty horses and twenty
five carriages can be accommodated
iu these lino premises. Accommo
dations are provided for any private
stock and carriages arriving at the
Hotel. It is intended to board horses
by the day or week, and one feature
will bo a night hack which will be
always ready nt a moment's notice.
Under the management of Mr. Clar
ence Macfarlane, it cannot lie any
thing else but a success. Tlio above
improvements have been in charge
of Mr. James T. White with G. W. J
Macfarlane & Co., and lie has ccr-
talnly transformed the appearance
of that part of Hotel street. 1
Bight at the corner of Hotel nnd
Itichatd streets, there is a small
vacant piece of land which it U in
tended to rent. There is room for
a small building to be put up.
A rich gold discovery iu Little
Bocky Mountains, a hundred miles
northeast of Benton, Molilalia, has
been confirmed, and there is a stam
pede to the spot.
