It is scarcely any use, so far as
present pro-pcets of impiovement go,
to advocate any change for the better
in town affairs. I'ndcr existing
conditions this town is only a sort of
side-show to the country. In the
United State- little tillages on the
frontiers of civilization are dignified
by the title of cities, to the amuse
nient of people from older eountiics.
Thai is the opposite extreme from
the position occupied by Honolulu.
There is probably no in ban commu
nity in America of the size of this
one, which has not a system of self
government. Pel haps our system
is cheaper than a corpoiate one, and
it has examples to justify it. noinin.
ally at least, in such an old country
as England. Some day we may be
able to give a comparative statement
of the relative contributions made by
town and country to the ticasury,
and the expenditures made in each,
to show on which side the financial
advantage, if any, lies, of the pooled
issues of both in matters of govern
ment. In any case, however, wo
shall not stake much upon the ground
of cheapness. Civilization does not
rest upon cheap qualities, but on the
contrary its progress is marked at
every step by fresh demands upon
wealth, to maintain its increasing
dignity iind its growing appetite for
luxury. One of the most sti iking
anomalies to our mental and physical
vision, when in a philosophical mood,
is how people strive to surround
themselves in their homes with all the
aoinforts and mental and physical
delights which our civilization places
within reach, and submit, with noth
ing more than a passing growl or a
vanishing expletive, every time they
go abroad, to annoyances and hard
ships innumerable, the results of in
difference, indolence, carelessness,
and stinginess, singly and collcc
tit'ely, on the part of everybody in
general and of nobody in particular.
Yet most men are Inure of the time
away from tho homes they take such
pains in making comfortable and
luxurious than they nre from thcmldst
of tho confusion, dirt, stumbling
blocks ami pitfalls of the outside
Honolulu. Of coutso,tho reason for
the gi cater pail of the difference lies
in the fact Hint the homes ate uniler
n system of self-government, nilniln
isteroil in I'tich case liy one of the
nnliirally-iollnoil sc., while the great
beyond is left, in large measure, to
tho care of everybody and thereioio
of nobody. This applies to some
extent even to cities governed from
within, for the best of Miles and
lobulations are allowed to become
dead letters unless public interest in
the administration of affairs is lively.
What arithmetic is equal to the com
putation, what tongue to the declar
ation, of tho amount of annoyance
and injury, the physical violence and
the mental disarrangement, occa
sioned to the inhabitants of this town
during every diurnal revolution of
the earth, by the irregular, the
rough, the broken, the dirty, the
narrow, the ill-curbed, the unscienti
fically graded, the utterly abomina
ble sidewalks throughout the town?
Would any system of self-government
be too dear that would lead to
even a moderate alleviation of human
distress from that source the side
walks? (.'an nothing be done under
present conditions to impiovo the
disgraceful state of affairs under
The dumping of the rotten fruit
forming part of a. damaged cargo on
the water front within the town
limits, mentioned in our local news
yesterday, might propcily engage
the attention of the health authori
ties. The thousand unholy smells
all along the edge of the harbor are
not at all in keeping with the odor
of healthful baltnincss wafted to
other climes to lure their inhabitants
to our shores.
A few weeks ago we gave a sort
of warning that our banana industry
was threatened with home competi
tion in California. At yesterday
afternoon's session of the Planters'
Company, Mr. W. O. Smith made
the statement that although the
bananas grew finely in Los Angeles,
California, they did not bear. There
need therefore be no apprehension
of immediate danger to Iho interest
of our banana growers from that
The (riiitlc suggests public action
to make proper arrangements for
carrying out the aquatic events of
the King's Birthday. Several weeks
ago wo .suggested the same thing
with regaul to the day's celebration
as a whole. Only confusion may
be expected from leaving such things
to the last moment. Part of the da'
might be devoted to other athletic
sports on the plain-, or in one of tho
squares or parks. Tlietc might be
baseball and football matches,
bicycle, triuyclc and foot races, etc.,
all held in conjunction.
Owing to a press of other matters,
some points in the public accounts
wcie overlooked in the hastily made
comments of yesterday. One thing
unnoticed was a shrinkage of $31,
88!). 4 8 in the Custom House receipts
from the corresponding six months
of last year. The receipts from taxes
arc Sfij.filO.fil behind, but as less
than S2,000 hate been collected,
only the tardiness of collectors is
signified by the figures. On the
other hand there is Slf,Ci)!).0!) to
the credit of "Government realiza
tions." against $8.rl.fl6 last year, or
over seventeen times as much, and
this windfall, together with an in
ci ease of S2,!J(J3..r0 from stamps,
come within one or two thousand
dollars of the excess of receipts over
expenditure (S18,!)f2.91) shown by
us yesterday. The four items men
tioued, however- Custom House,
Government realizations,' taxes and
stamps show a net shrinkage of
$70,158.78 from the corresponding
term last year. And, even, if tho
taxes were up to last year's, the
shrinkage would still be S 11,0 18.27.
As these four items represent the
principal souiccs of revenue of which
ti comparative statement is afforded,
except those which are almost
stationary, and include that one
which furnishes the best gauge to
the state of our foreign trade the
Custom House the showing is not
an encouraging one. Yet another
item in the accounts must bo added
to the evidence that the finances
have fallen seriously behind, and
that is tho respective balances on
hand on April 1st of each year. Lnst
year there was a balance of S 18,--'flO.71,
while this year the term was
entered upon wilh but $2,220.-12,
and that with ti large pot Hon of the
appropriations for toads and bridges,
etc., belonging to the last period,
THE PLANTERS IN COUNCIL.
Tit.sday, Oct. 21st.
The morning session was largely
occupied with routine business. Mr.
Jonathan Austin presented the re
port of the committee on the Treas
urer's accounts, finding them correct
and well-kept, wilh a balance of
$l,!I70.f.ri in bank. Unanimously
Balloting for trustees, with Messrs.
J. H. Paty and W. W. Hall as tel
lers, resulted in the following selec
tion : Messrs. J. H. Alherton, Jona
than Austin, W. II. Uailcy, II. P.
Baldwin, S. 11. Dole, It. Ilalstead,
It. It. Hind, .1. M. Homer, P. C.
Jones, J. L. Itichardson, W. II.
Itickard, V. O. Smith and G. X.
At the afternoon session the trus
tees reported the following named
olllec-bcarcrs : President, Mr. Jona
than Austin; Vice-President, Mr.
S. B. Dole; Secretary, Mr. W.
O. Smith; Treasurer, Mr. P. C.
Jones; Auditor. Mr. J. B. Alherton.
A discussion as to the best method
for raising funds $'1,000 being re
quired for the purposes of the year
ended with a pending motion by
Mr. J. M. Horner, seconded by Mr.
S. 11. Dole, that an assessment of
ten cents per ton on the crop of 188 1
A letter from Mr. Horner was
read, urging the necessity of the
planters having cheap labor, and, to
that end, advocating tho admittance
of the Chinese. More work should
be got out of tho labor the planter
now has, by teaching the laborer to
use his strength to better advantage.
The Committee on Machinery re
ported. Trials of the Jarvis furnace
had not in all cases yielded results
favorable to it. The burning of
green trash and the crushing of cane
were matters still under investiga
tion. Mr. P. C. Jones read a paper on
the diffusion process, which elicited
some discussion. He advised the
Company to devote S20.000 to a
trial of it. Mr. Davics said that
Mr. Hart, of Kohala, intended to
import a diffusion plant from Ger
many. Mr. Schncfcr thought all
needed information about the pro
cess could be got from Java by cor
respondence. Mr. Davics said that
the "saturation" process was being
tried at the Waiakca mill, with pros
pects of success. By it the crushed
cane after leaving the main rolls is
brought under a shower of hot water
and then passed under another pair
Mr. W. It. Castle presented the
report of the Committee on Legisla
tion. The. Committee had held
themselves aloof from political dis
cussion, believing it was out of their
province, but had nevertheless in
terested themselves in legislation.
They had taken action in regard to
the currency question, Chinese re
gistration, diseases of animals and
the establishment of a chair of natu
ral sciences, with good effect in each
case. Attention of planters was
directed to the law relating to the
registration of births and marriages.
Planters had been relieved of some'
expense by the abolition of tuition
fees for laborers' children. Liberal
appropriations for internal improve
ments were not expected ito 'have
great results, owing to the depleted
condition of the treasury. There
was hope m tho election of men to
the Legislature who could not be
liought with free lunches or a poi
contract. Oppression was com
plained of in the system of taxation,
whereby not only were the growing
sugar crops taxed, but also their
product of sugar and molasses.
An Interesting discussion upon
the report of the Forestry Committee
engaged the Company during the
remainder of the nfternoon. It ended
vith a motion directing the Secre
tary to draw up a resolution of
thanks to -Mr. Jaoger, superinten
dent of tho public nurseries, for his
Aclf-sacrillcing interest and labors in
the promolifhi of forest cultivation.
Wi;oxi:si)AY, Oct. 22nd.
After the meeting opened this
morning, the trustees reported tint
they had resolved to levy an assess
ment of 25cts. a share to raise funds.
Tho Secretary presented draft of
lesolulion of thanks to Mr. Jaeger,
for his services to forestry, which
Mr. T. II. Davies presented a
draft of memorial to the Minister of
the luteilor on the subject, of immi
gration. It urged the necessity of
a vigorous immigration policy, and
recommended, if the Japanese
scheme proved inadequate, that the
Chinese be admitted. Messrs. the
President, J. M. Horner, A. Unna
and T. II. Davics were appointed a
committee to present the memorial.
Mr. Horner presented the report
of the Committee on Transportation,
that is, the carrying of cane from
the field to the mill. , Mr. Walsh
read a paper on the samo subject,
giving the experience on Pnia plan
tation. There was a lively discussion
ol the several points raised, and the
report was ordered to lie published,
also Mr. Walsh's paper as a supple
ment to it.
The report of the Committee on
Fertilizers and Seed Cane was called
for, but not forthcoming. The Secre
tary said that there was only one
member of the committee present
(Mr. Ilalstead), and the latter had
informed him that all he had to sub
mit was a recommendation of bone
meal with a sample. Mr. Walsh
said the bone-meal was a failure on
Paia plantation. The President's
experience had been that bone-meal
was useful on cane, but had no per
ceptible effect on raltoous. He
thought it helped the cane in his
case by correcting acidity in the
soil. Its use made tho sprouting
more regular. Mr. Marsden had
found the skimmings from the mud
press very beneficial on the crop.
Mr. W. O. Smith, Secretary, pre
sented a report on Statistics. He
explained that it was very incom
plete and meagre, as his circulars
had not been generally attended to.
When more replies were received,
which he expected, a fuller report
would be prepared and published in
the Monthly. His repot t was
adopted and ordered to be pub
lished. The meeting took a ieee-9 from
11.43 till 2 o'clock.
