TREASON, 0 KING I
Ono need not be long in litis coun
try to remark the trick of some
public servants in crying out, "Trea
son, treason!" ami getting behind
tlio King whenever their own con
duct is held up to criticism. It is
not an original device, nor one un
ique to this country, but those who
have seen the same thing tried in
other countries the more readily sec
through it here. Yesterday, there
was a passionate display of loyalty
in tho Advertiser, and His Majesty
was involuntarily paraded in front of
his Commissioner to the South Seas,
and the latter's Secretary. The
occasion for such tactics was simply
'a hint thrown out that the conduct
of those olllcials on their mission
was likely to bo revealed in a judi
cial investigation. Candidly, the
first evidence of any weight with
us, that anything seriously blame
worthy could be proved against the
two gentlemen, was that very arti
cle upon their behalf in our con
temporary. It was at the very least
a piece- of bumptious arrogance,
without a spark of true loyal
ty in all its frantic canting.
This morning the Ajlvcrliccr charges
us with "insulting the gentlemen in
question, in .saying that they wished
to "shield themselves from inves
tigation of their conduct." What
else but an attempt to shield them
selves could be made of the coarse
insinuations thrown out that all who
harbored aDy suspicions of their
conduct were enemies of the King,
upon whose heads tliey invoked
Hi vino maledictions? Under such
gross rcvilings, our retort might well
have been attributed to a second
Moses. The manner in which it lias
been received .shows that it did not
go wide of the mark. If it is treason
to mention in aught but terms of
awe and admiration the conduct of
any ollieial who holds a commission
from the King, then let a heads
man's block be set up at the Fish
Market and have done with liberty
at once and forever in the Hawaiian
When people talk as if litis, that
and the other good work cannot suc
ceed in Honolulu on account of
local jealousies, they arc trumping
up an excuse for neglect of duty.
If all the good that has been dono in
the world had depended upon the
efforts of people who were afraid to
encounter, and unable to ovcrcomo
prejudices and opposition of all
kinds, the stale of the human race
to-day would bci very dreary con
templation. Recently we had an article' advo
cating monthly settlements of ac
counts. In our case precept fol
lowed example, for the business of
thc Bum.utin has been conducted
(pon monthly accounts from the
start. An advertisement of Messrs.
rtlJisliop & Co., requesting that busi-
59 with them be settled monthly,
started our contemporaries anew
tho subject. "Pay as you
is a good maxim lor these
tiroes, indicating tho best way to
void llvins bevoud meads.
fllonolulu is a beautiful cttv. It
i splendid streets, without mire in
t.wcatlicr or dust in dry. Its
jsniootuly paved sidewalks, r.unning
SMtoltho outer suburban limits, make
.JU3..CVC1V 1U11U mill. lUUlUMKIUiUU ll.
Ingty judicious disposition of shade
makes it not unpleasant to go
nb; jad even at noonday. Nowhere
has sanitary science been applied to
6itch perfection. Gas and electri
city alternate with tho moon in mak
ing every night as clear as day. The
citizens arc like ono family in their
union of aim and effort in every
good work. Drunkenness, crime
and wretchedness arc chiefly known
in the remembrance of tlio oldest in
habitants. No wonder that this
beautiful group and its peerless
capital arc attracting thousands of
tired and sick folk, by the weekly
steamers, from all parts of the
world. Confound the twelve o'clock
whistle! It lias broken off a
delightful day dream right in the
SUPERIORITY OF AMERICAN LABOR.
A comparison Jms been instituted
between the work of a Kuropcan em
ploye and one in the United States.
It appears that employes of the cot
ton mills in England work up 2,914
pounds per annum, and, those in
Germany from 1,200 pounds to
1,500 pounds, while tliu operatives
of tlio United States work up no less
than '1,350 pounds. The amount of
wool worked tip in England by each
operative averages 1,375 pounds; in
the United States, 1,0-10 pounds, and
in Germany 1,000 pounds. In flax
the average is 2,080 pounds for Kng
land and 715 pounds for Germany;
in silk, 71 pounds for Kngland, 87
pounds in the United States and -C0
pounds in Germany. It will tints be
seen Hint the operative in the United
States works up 100 pounds of cot
ton to 07 pounds worked up by the
English operative, and 27A pounds
in Germany; 100 pounds of wool
against 77 pounds by the English
operative, and Gtt pounds by the
German ; 100 pounds of silk against
81 ft pounds by the English and GO
pounds by the German operative.
It is consequently claimed that as the
American artisan furnishes more
work in n given time than the for
eigner, lie is entitled to the higher
wages he receives.--From London

forming you of the good work done by
your Hand Grenades at our Factory In
Alameda, yesterday. A lire caught upon
the shinglo roof of a largo frame struc
lure, and burned furiousl', nnd for a
limo endangered our entire works. Tho
lire was burning over about ono hundred
feet of surface when tho nlnrm was
given, nnd tho men all being on tho llrst
lloor, tci.cd tho Grenades nnd had to go
up three flights of stairs to the top of
tlio building, which is sixty feet high,
ami there was difficulty In gaining ac
cess to tho llro on account ot tho steep
ness of tho roof and tho absence of
rlcats, which occasioned cousldcrnblo
delay. When tho men reached tho llro
they Instantly extinguished it by the
tiso of your Hand Grcnudcs, although
the shingles were well burned. Wo be
lieve your Grenades saved tho building
from total destruction. I'lcasa scud us
