Vc return to the consideration of
our recent correspondent's letter.
No doubt the kingdom should have
a cruiser, or revenue culler pcihaps
several craft of that soit could he
employed to advantage. Although
the time mm,t be very remote when
we can afford a naval armament that
would be any protection to our com
merce on thu high seas, yet a coast
service for the transport of police or
such troops as wo have, in case of
disturbance at any outlying point,
and for revenue duty, might be
within the country's means before a
great while. But such a service
can only be operated to the best
advantage when we shall have inter
island telegraph communication. Our
correspondent had surely not con
sidered his utterances when he wiolc
of war lisks on our commerce being
reduced on account of any naval
force this counliy can possibly
afford to .establish. While the
greatest Powers cannot get up a war
vessel which the inventors of guns
and explosive engines cannot render
untrustwoiUiy, what hope is there
of this little Kingdom being able to
furnish any security to commerce, in
the event of war, in the vast water
stretches on all sides uf us? He did
' not make it clear, however, whether
ho meant war between this and any
other country, or internecine trouble.
If the former, the notion is out of
nil rational discussion. We dare
not talk of such a thing, and it
would bo madness to prepare for it.
Any act of defending ourselves
against foreign conquest would sim
ply mean the lluowing away of the
guarantee of independence so cheer
fully accorded us by the great
Powers. In case of civil war, our
ocean commerce would hao to take
its chances with property oji laud.
Our naval armament itself, whether
strong or weal:, would have to run
.the risk of being seized by an in
surgent party at the lirst outbreak.
The advisability of adopting means
of internal protection and security is
not to be cavilled at. The question
is as to what is best suited to the
conditions and the lesourcci of the
country. It will, we think, be gen
erally acknowledged that the expense
and the evils of a permanent mili
tary establishment of any size are
all too great to be incurred. What
is feasible and calculated to afford
greater security than any regular
army and navy we can establish or
maintain, is a good militia system.
A citizen soldiery is the best for this
nation, in every way the matter is
viewed. There is opportunity for
some of our statesmen to distinguish
themselves at the next Legislature
by having passed a comprehensive
Militia Act. In the meantime, give
every possible encouragement to our

A Republican was heaul to com
plain, in a New York hotel, that tho
Republican National Committee hnd,
" by their asininily " protty nearly
ruined all of them financially. Said
he, " Thoy lost us the State and tho
election by blundcriug, and by their
ridiculous claim since the election
that it would bo shown that Blaine
had a plurality in tho Stale, they
caused U8 to lake odds in belting
offeicd by exultant Democrats, so
that wo practically put up and lost
our last dollar."
It is complained that unscrupu
lous and inconsiderate politicians
and correspondents arc making
trouble among tho Southern negroes.
Many of the latter have been made
afraid that the Democrats will at
tempt to rc-onslao them, but in
111011. cases have been assuicd by tho
colored cleigy and their white friends
that no such danger exists.
Some people attribute the Repub
lican defeat to the llev. Mr. Bur
chard's grouping of "Bum, Roman
ism and Rebellion," as a descrip
tion of the Democratic party, in a
campaign speech delivered in New
York. Regarding this cx-Collcctor
Thomas Murphy, of New York, has
said : " We have been beaten out
of our boots, and old Burchard did
it. Blaine told me that when Bur
chard mado use of his expiession
there was a buzz of conversation in his
car, and ho understood Burchard to
refer to ' Rum, Mormonism and Re
bellion.' He said that if he' had
heard the parson aright he woidd
have at once disclaimed any rellec
tlon on a religious body, so wo can
sec by what trifles even the Presi
dency can be lost."
Bclva Lockwood threatens pro
ceedings against the election officers
who threw out 150 votes cast for
her in New Hampshire, 200 in Chi
cago, several hundred in Michigan
and uOO in California. She says
these votes must appear in the offi
cial returns to the Vice-President,
or " I will know the leason why."
Mr. P. T. Barnum, the " world's
greatest showman," a few weeks
before the election declared that if
Cleveland was elected he would sell
out his entire estate at 25 per cent,
less than its assessed value. Since
the election he has come out over
his own signature, announcing his
readiness to keep his woul. It is
said that a syndicate is forming to
buy up his property.
The Gospel Temperance Meeting
ul the Bethel on Saturday evening,
which was especially for llie benefit
of printers, was rather interesting.
One of the speakers, a printer, how
ever, went a little too far in stigma
tizing all the printers of Honolulu as
addicted to drink. The next time
he will please except the typogra
phical staff of the BruxTix, which
is thoioughly sober.
Some Republicans at home and
abroad are making themselves ridi
culous by abusing the Prohibition
ists for having exercised their in
alienable lights of citizenship in the
lccent election. If the Republican
Party has a divine right to pcipctual
dominion it should have the courago
to signify it in a diiect way. The
assumption that all the votes for Mr.
St. John came from the Republican
side is a gratuitous one, anyway.
Thcie arc as good and true temper
ance men in the Democratic faith as
out of it. So far as' the matter is
one of right, the Prohibition Party
had as much claim upon temperance
men's votes Hint went to cither of
the other parties, as any of them
had upon the votes of its members.
SYMPHONY CLUB CONCERT.
The concert by the above club on
Saturday evening at tho Y. M. 0. A.
Hall was attended by a fair audience,
not by any means so largo as it ought
to huvc been, when it is taken
into consideration that the club has
always assisted when called upon
for any chaiitablo or other purpose.
The concert was in aid of its musical
fund and library,, as such an organi
zation cannot bo kept mulling with-'
out some slight expense, and now
music must be obtained. Before
commencing tho programme Mr. J.
V. Brown in behalf of tho club asked
the indulgence of the audience, and
stated that, owing to the indisposi
tion of Mrs. Paty and Miss Castlo
tho prograiumo would have to bo
slightly altcicd. The first number
was an overture, "Silver Bell,"
played well by the club, though tho
double bass was played too loud for
the small body of instruments, and
this fact was noticeable throughout
the evening. Mr. Hasselman gave tho
next number, a cavatina from Verdi's
Eniani, but wo did not caro for
hlin in it. Ho was heard later on to
lino advantage in n duct with Miss
Paikc. Mr. Yarndloy played a violin
solo in his usual well-known style,
followed by a vocal trio sung by Mrs.
llanford, Misses Renton and Lewis
in an excellent manner. . Mr. Morse
received loud applause for his flute
boIo, " Old Polks nt Home," which
he played finely. Miss B. Parke
next appeared and sung very tastily
a song by Braga with violin obligalo,
played exquisitely by Mr. Ynrndlcy
with muted instrument. Tho first
part of the piogrammc was concluded
by a beautiful valse by Fahrbach
well played by tho club. The gem
of the c cuing to our mind was the
paraphrase on !,iszt's "Die Lorcley,"
also played by the club. It is in
itself a most beautiful composition,
and gavo tho opportunity of hearing
the individual members of the club
on their different instruments. The
saxophone solo was a disappoint
ment. It is not an Instrument adapted
for solo playing, but in military com
binations it would be of great value.
It is a conical brass tube with keys,
and is played by means of a mouth
piece and single iced of the clarionet
kind. To Miss Hopper, who played
the piano with the club, taking Miss
Castle's place at almost ajmoment's
notice, too much praise cannot be
given for her conscientious and ex
cellent playing. Mrs. Ilanford also
ably, accompanied several of the
numbers. Mr. Marques, the Presi
dent of the club, is to be congratu
lated on the excellent arrangements.
It is to his perseverance that the
club has held so well together. The
concert netted only 850.

Last Monday a rumor reached
Sheriff Wilcox that thcie was a
conspiracy among the prisoners at
Lihue to escape. Nine of them, so
said rumor, were to run together ;
and, once away, they thought they
could give the police great trouble
in recapturing them. Four out of
tho nine had recently escaped, and
were retaken well armed. Conse
quently they were wearing balls and
But " llic: best laid schemes o'uiice
and men, " etc. Mi1. Wilcox was at
the prison before the conspirators
got together. The lirst to come
were those wearing the chains ; and
he insisted upon examining tho
shackles. All thu rivets weie found
filed so that tin- shackles could bo
removed by hand. But for the
timely discovery of the plot there
would have been a'heavy expense in
retaking theso men, to say nothing
of the mischief they might have done
while at liberty. How closely the
overseer in charge of tho prisoners
must have attended to business, ,to
let four men file the rivets of their
shackles ! Docs not such carelessness
border closely on crime?
Most of tho sugar mills on this
island arc about beginning. Those
at Koloa, Klccle and Waimea have
been running a short time, and a
number of others will stmt within a
week or two. Crop prospects seem
good, and planters complain of
nothing but prices.
