' Old residents asseit that Honolulu
Tf. -was a remarkably healthy place in
W: former times. There is uo denying
that it is not so now, nor nns been
for several year, past. The Hoard
of Health statistics, incomplete as
prove it lo lie one of Hie
most unhealthy cities in Christcn
doin. Ovci -crowding of buildings,
lack of domestic cleanliness, want of
sewerage, and superabundance f
vegetationexcluding sun-light ami
pievcnting free circulation of air
ate probably the eliief calces which
htivu conl libulcd towards this change
for tlu worse. Assuming tills con
elusion to lie correct, the Govern
ment including the Legislature
aloim with the Executive are
largely lilamable for our high death
,..,,.. fur M.,VCragp .mil preventing
the over-crowding of buildings are
certainly Matter which come within
Iho province of Governmental action.
Pome unreasoning and unieasonable
people go so fai as lo charge Gov
ernment with the entire responsibi
lity of our poor sanitary condition.
This is both unjust and foolish.
AVhcn Government litis fully per
formed its part, much, very much,
still i cumins for Hie people to pet
form. It is a fact thai people, par
ticularly the more ignorant, arc
prone to look too much to Govern
ment and too little to themseles.
Alen arc slow to learn the extent to
which their destinies are in their own
power. They arc apt lo be aston
ished if told that nine-tenths of the
calamities which alllicl the human
race are directly and obviously the
work of men's own hands. They
are inclined to confound the feeling
which we all iepeet, thai of cheerful
acceptance of the inevitable, with
that other kind of resignation to
evils which are not inevitable, which
i mostly laziness and apathy, and
the prevalence of which is one of
the most characteritic distinctions
between the savage and the civilized
man. Wo are deeply convinced that
no thorough and complete sanitary
improvement can be effected what
ever Acts may be passed or what
ever power conferred on ptiblio
ollicers unless a real and intelligent
interest in the matter can be created
among the people at large. In the
lirst place, it is almost impossible, in
a free country, to get laws effectually
put in force where they interfere
with the profits or convenience of
individuals, unle those laws arc
supported by opinion. In the next
place, whatever legislative and ad
ministrative measures can do for
public health and they can do a
great deal they can never .supersede
the necessity for personal and private
care. To provide pure water for
drinking is of, no avail, if those who
arc meant to consume it prefer less
innocent fluid. To puiify tin at
mosphere from foul vapors will not
make people healthy, if, when they
have got clean air. they shut il out
of their houses. To erect public
baths will not produce cleanliness, if
people do not care to tic them. The
State may enact laws, the Authori
ties may execute them to the best of
their power, inspectors may travel
about, medical men may draw up
reports, but people cannot be made
cleanly or healthy against their will
or without their intelligent co-operation.
The opportunity may be fur
nished by others, but the work must
be done by themselves. For this
reason, sanitary instruction is as
essential as sanitary legislation : in
deed, more so; for, if in these
matters the public know, what it
wants, sooner or later the legislation
will follow ; but the best laws, among
a free people, arc waste paper if they
are not understood and appreciated.
The importance of this matter, of
awakening the people to a proper
sense of what mut be done by
themselves, cannot be over-estimated.
To arouse earnest concern and per
sistent co-operation among the heter
ogeneous masses of Honolulu may
bo a dilllcuit, an almost impossible,
task. Nevertheless, the dictates
botli of patriotism and philanthropy
urge to persevering effort.
A correspondent highly
mend Air. Webb as one
Commissioners to represent Hawaii
at New Orleans. It would give us
pleasure to be able to anuoiuicc his
appointment without danger of con
tradiction. It is a little tiresome to bo always
pegging at tho community to take
concerted action in matters where all
have an interest. Still wo consider
it the place of a public journal to
have its say, and leave tho rest to
the educative influence of results,
whether lis udvico Is taken of not.
It is not tho public who will suffer
most, however, from the results of
the htm led and imperfect arrange
ments for celebrating Hie approach
ing holiday. The enthusiasm of
the young men who maintain here .
the credit of atliletio sports, parHciio
larly aiptalic, is almost certain to
give the people a full bill of diver
sion on Hie waterside, on Monday,
lint the immediate promoters of the j
regatta, and the participants in it,
are liable, from familiar causes due
to dilatory action and lack of public
assistance, to have their laudable
ardor seriously dampened for future
occasions by Vexatious internal re
sults. There is certainly no time to
spire in getting together an exhibit
for New Orleans. It will cost none
of our manufacturers or agriculturists
much trouble or expense to contri
bute .samples of their wotk or tillage.
The olllcial notice in this paper will
give needed information.
Knob of our big daily contem
poraries has set up the claim that it
is the U-uiUiiij paper; or, rather,
their respective representatives have
essayed to impress people with Hie
idea that such is the truth. This
humble little sheet has not advanced
so far. "The leading paper "is a
somewhat ambiguous phrase, which,
with all our faults and all our excel
lencies, we have never been guilty
of applying to ourselves. We have,
however, on different occasions had
the temerity to assert that we had
tin largest circulation and the great
est number of readers. We would
not have been so rash had we not
made sure of our ground before
hand ; that is, held the proof of our
assertion. As an offset to the
"leading paper" notion, wc feel
impelled by a sense of duty to our
selves to re-assert, that no paper in
Hie English language, printed and
published in this city, has so large
a circulation in Honolulu as the
Daily Hl-llv.-iix. This is a hard fact,
which we can readily substantiate,
and of which business people may
make a note to their own advantage.
Cor.vj-ponilenco i solicited on the to:
ie of the day, or what may become so.
We ii'serve the rijiht to excUe purely
liii -cuial matter.
Wo do not hold ourselves responsible
for the opinions o.prc-.cl by our cor
THE UNIVERSAL EXPOSITION.
Koitou llri.i.i.ns : I am glad that
little Hawaii is to be represented in
tho New Orleans Exposition, and
that our Government are doing what
they can to excite public enthusiasm
and secure contributions of exhibits.
It is impossible for the Government
to accomplish much in a matter of
tliis kind without co-operation of the
public ; therefore, let us hope that
the public will do its part. To arouse
enthusiasm for anything except a
spree or a scandal in this community
is hard work; but it would be truly
refreshing to tind that a matter so
largely affecting the country as a
creditable exhibit of its products
abroad hail enlisted the practical in
terest of those most concerned. All
that newspapers and books combined
can do to give an idea abroad of the
capabilities of the country can't com
pare with making a good showing at
the coming Industrial Exposition in
New Orleans. If our peoplo wish
the outside world to sec and learn
something of our products and in
dustries, let tbcra set vigorously to
work to prepare their exhibits. It
is only a stupid excuse to say that it
is now too late. Certainly, an earlier
begiuning would have been better.
Hut between now and the 27th in
stantthe time I see mentioned in
Hie Government notification a great
deal can be done, if the thing is
earnestly taken up. The country is
small, and opportunities of sending
to Honolulu from its remotest parts
will occur before the 27th.
In conclusion, I would suggest
that the various printing establish
ments of Honolulu scud forward
specimens of their capabilities. The
daily, weekly, and monthly journals,
of which wc have so many, ought to
lio sufficiently alive to their own in
terests to forward their files. What
think you, Mr. Editor ?
THE SECOND COMMISSIONER.
Kiiitok Bt-LLKTix: On Wednes-
uv you intimated that Air. J. S.
Webb would piofonbly represent
Hawaii uci at Hie forthcoming In
dustrial Exposition in New Orleans.
The next day you corrected the in-
fit I I tin (frill blnttiir fltu4 llwit rtAitfln. I
tnau is not going. It seems lo mo
a pity ; for no better representative
could bo chosen. I lo is well-informed
about lite country, its resources, in
dustries, products, capabilities, etc.,
and can furnish a large amount of
information that will naturally be
inquired for by visitors to tho Hawa
iian department al Hie Exhibition.
Whoever is sent should bo well
posted about the islands j for I take
it that the man in charge will have
more to do than the exhibits in the
way of enlightening visitors. Where
there is n large showing made people
look and pass on ; but when they
come to a small country, whose ex
hibits occupy n small space, they arc
more inquisitive and ask many
questions. This was very noticeable
al the Philadelphia Exhibition.
People would hang for hours around
the Hawaiian show, and when they
found Mr. Hitchcock, the gentleman
in charge, ready to answer all in
quiries they asked all kinds of
questions. No doubt, the same thing
will be icpcalcd at the coming show,
and Mr. Webb would fill thn bill
admirably. An Ajiumcan.
THE PRISONER IN COURT.
When the l'olicc Court opened this
morning, quite a number of persons
were present in the Courtroom and
downstairs, anxious togct a glimpse
of Bridges, who shot ratten, whom
it was expected would be brought
up on the charge. His Honor pro
ceeded with the ordinary business
and, when through, closed his book,
and Hie crowd departed, thinking
that Bridges would be brought up
some time next week. About balf-an-hour
later His Honor Judge
Bickcrlon resumed his scat ou the
bench, his audience consisting of
Deputy Marshal Dayton, Interpreter
Wilcox, and the Dui.ixtix reporter.
Capt. Trip) arrived a few moments
later, having Bridges in custody.
The prisoner is a short, thick-set
man, with brown hair, and lias a
moustache and side whiskers. He
was neatly dressed in a dark suit
and had a ring on Hie little linger of
each hand. He appeared to be very
nervous, and, as the charge was read
to him, leaned slightly towards the
Justice and turned his head ou one
side as if a little deaf. His Honor
read tho charge to him as follows:
That Hiram Alfred Bridges be
charged with manslaughter in the 1st
degree, committed as follows: in
that the said Hiram Alfred Bridges,
in Hie town of Honolulu, Island of
Oaliu, Hawaiian Islands, ou the 12th
da-of November, A. I). 1881, with
a certain deadly weapon, to wit a
pistol, assaulted and then and there
shot and killed one L. II. Patten
without authority, justification or
extenuation of law.
After His Honor had read the
charge, he told the prisoner he need
not make any answer.
Mr. W. I. Castle then said he
appeared for Bridges, and should
waivo examination, and ask for a
committal to the January term of
the Supreme Court.
His Honor then committed the pri
soner for trial at the January term
of the Supreme Court, 188.1.
After a short conversation with
bis counsel, the prisoner was quickly
.taken back to the jail by Capt.
Tripp. The whole proceedings did
not last more than live or six min
ute, and the authorities in charge
arc to be congratulated on the, suc
cessful manner in. which the preli
minary 'examination was conducted.
.Several persons standing outside the
Court downstairs were not even
aware of what had happened.
Manslaughter is of three degrees,
and the Jury under an indictment
for minder or manslaughter may re
turn a verdict of manslaughter in
cither degree, or of assault and
battery, as the facts proved will
warrant. Manslaughter in Hie first
degree shall be punished by impri
sonment at hard labor, for a term of
years not leas than ten, nor more
than twenty, in the discretion of the
Couit. Manslaughter in the .second
degree, by imprisonment at hard
labor, not more than ten year, or
less than live years. Manslaughter
in the third degree, by imprisonment
at hard labor not more than five
years, or by a flue not more than
one thousand dollars, hi the discre
tion of the Court.
Various rumors arc afloat as to
the pistol used by Bridges. It lias
been said it belonged to certain
parties in this city. This is not so,
it is Bridges', and he has Had it for
some time. It lias been laid by,
and rubbed with oil, as plainly seen
on examining it. It is very weighty,
and it formidable-looking weapon.
