AN AMERICAN HEALTH LAW.
A new health bill lias been pre
pared for submission to Congrcis,
containing protective provisions
against Hie introduction of cholera
or other infectious diseases into the
United States. It comprehends a
National Board of Health, to be
constituted by one member of every
State Hoard. Both National and
State Boards have powers conferred
upon them, to act unitedly or inde
pendently, in the framing and en
forcing of health regulations. The
National Board will regulate the
marine quarantine service, making
rules to be observed by all vessels
sailing from foreign ports to ports
in the United States, and a fine not
exceeding SI, 000, to be a lien upon
the vessel, is appointed for each
infraction of such rules. A pro
clamation may be made, by the
President of the United Slates, of
measures which he may deem neces
sary to be taken for the public pro
tection in cases of emergency, but,
at the same time, he shall conveno
the National Board, and whatever
regulations thai body may devise
shall supersede those contained in
the proclamation. Consular ofiicers
are to collect sanitary statistics and
information in foreign ports. De
partment ofiicers at home ate to
serve temporarily under direction of
the Board, without extra compensa
tion. An appropriation of $500,000
is made in the bill to meet expenses
incurred in carrying it out, such
sum to be disbuiscd under the Na
tional Board's direction. It will be
reassuring to this country to have
such a complete measure against
pestilence adopted l3r our mo3t in
timate neighbor. As, however, it is
not improbable that the cholera may
break out afresh in European coun
tries, with which w e have some in
tercourse, next season, or appear
among our Central or South Ameri
can neighbors at any time, it be
comes us to have our own house set
in order against such an unwelcome
visitant. Mixed up though our health
interests are with party politics,
public opinion properly brought to
bear upon our Boaid of Health
would, we trust, not be without re
sult in having the sanitary condition
of Honolulu made more satisfactory
than it is. The probability that if
epidemic disease broke out here, Hie
country would be cut off for the
time from commercial intercom sc
with the United States, under that
country's pioposcd sliingent law,
should in itself prevent our Board
of Health from going to sleep over
the sanitary condition of the city.
The Guide speaks of the "genuine
proprietor" of the Beaver eating
saloon. Its spurious proprietor must
bo a counter-feeder.
Mr. Jaeger offers to give training
in gardening and tree culture to a
number of select boys from the
plantations, at the Goyernracnt
' nursery, for an average indemnity
of $100 per boy per annum, each
one, however, to stay only three
months. ' This is an opportunity
that should bo jumped at by intelli
Mr. Jaeger has another at tide on
"Neglected Industries" in tlio cur
rent number of the Planters' Month
bj. It contains the following striking
sentences near the close: "I am
4l! convinced thai every island of this
group could bo transformed into a
beautiful garden. However bad the
land mny be, a sand bank, a rocky
hill, a dry plain or a sour swamp
useful plants can always be found
which will thrive there."
Tlio 1'lantcrs' Monihbj for Janu
ary is brimming over with mailer of
interest, not only to the plantation
bul to the whole country. The iin
poi tunity of the editor lias at length
prevailed to the extent of getting
several practical men to write their
cxpciiencc in rations departments
t)C the sugar industry. This "po.ri
odical is a growing cicdit to the
planting guild as well as to its ener
getic conductor, Mr. "W. O. Smith,
Secretary of the Planters' Company.
Mr. Canavarro, Portuguese Com
missioner, has questioned the plan
ters of these Islands categorical1,
regarding his proposed system of
co-operative labor between them and
Portuguese immigrants. To give
rise to a class of laborers who would
have more interest in the soil than
their daily wages would certainly be
a general benefit, however it might
affect the individual interests of
planters. From the consideration
given the Commissioner's proposal
at the planters' convention, it is not
likely all the replies to his questions
will be unfavorable, if any will be.
The main floor of Kawaiahao
church was well filled last evening
with an attentive and deeply inter
ested audience. The Rev. W. C.
Mcrritt made the opening prayer.
The text was taken from John 11 :G,
"Iain the way, the truth aud the
life. No man comcth unto the
Father but by me." Mrs. Hamp
son said: Go upon the mount of
observation and look where man is
without the Bible. He knows that
there is a God and that there is a
dark shadow between God and him.
lie is conscious of the fact that some
atonement needs to be made. To
this end the Hindoo will throw him
self under the wheels of the Jugger
naut and the mother fling her child
into the dark waters of the Ganges,
that thus they may atone. Who arc
the teachers of these Hindoos?
Nature and Reason. And these, let
it be remembered, never made an
infidel. Both disclaim the infield.
The facts thai -we sec around us
demonstrate that man is trying to
find God, from whom he has become
alienated through sin. But Nature
and Reason do not point out the way
back. "We sec God in nature, but
He is a God above us ; too high for
man to attain. There is a God in
" He moves in a mysterious way,
His wondeis to pci'foun.
He plants his foot-tcps in the sea,
And lides upon the stoiin."
But He is beyond human compre
hension. Thcic is a God in law,
but this law we have violntcd, and
God cannot be reached in law, for
wc owe him an allegiance that we
have never paid. How then shall
man find God? You have been
groping through Reason's dreary
pathway and you cannot compass
what you fain would. But in the
text it is rcadc plain. Peace is made
between God aud man thiough Jesus
Christ. God has put the blackboard
.before our spiritual natures nnd
entreats us to study the a b c 's of
His wonderful love in Jesus Christ.
O study this and j'ou will have
knowledge, and knowledge is power.
An innocent man was suspended on
Calvary's tree ; a tragedy so terrible
that there was the hiding of the 6tin,
and convulsions of the earth and the
veil ot the temple rent in . twain.
Ihcn, thanks to God, the way to
heaven and his heart was opened.
Jesus has shown us the Father and
it biifflcclh us. "Will you come to
Jesus, In other? Will you enter
through Jesus, the new and living
way? The pew will not admit you
to the fatherhood of God. The
l ilual will not do it. The Jews had
a perfect ritual and gorgeonsness.
But that is not the way. The piety
of your father and mother is not the
way. Nor the sacrament. All this
is imperceptible divcigencc from the
true way. Jesus says, "lam the
way." Yea, let me emphasize and
proclaim 'it, Jesus is the only way to
God tho Father, and heaven. Mrs.
Hanipson told an impressive nar
lativo of one who had been a pro
fessor of leligion, but never had
been truly converted and who had
no Christ, a fatal disease suddenly
consuming her system and death
staring her in the face. The speaker
then pointed with burning eloquence
and pathos to Jesus Christ, the only
door, the open door, the way of
access to everlasting life. Tho sun
holds tho entire planetary system
in motion and effect. Jpsus Christ
is the centre of truth, the suu
of liglitcousncss. Ilavo 3011 Jesus
Christ? If you have, your walk
will be with God. Jesus Christ, tlio
keystone in the arch. Put Christ
into the arch of truth aud all other
truths will revolve Mound it in lliclr
places, "t am tlio truth," says the
Son of God. O come nnd take it.
Pilate asked, "What is truth?" The
truth embodied stood before Pilate
in the person of Jesus of Nnzatclh.
Accept Jesus Clitisl and Ho will
make you free. Let scepticism go
and lqt all doubt bo buried and
perish, and come to Jesus Christ,
the tiulli, nnd bo saved. You ate
to pass away anil, appear before God.
Can you go and give an account of
your stewardship? Mrs. Hanipson
closed with an impassioned appeal to
the whole audience to accept a pre
sent, gical ami everlasting salvation.
Are there any in this oily that have
not yet bcatd Mrs. Hanipson? Then
they evidently do not know what is
going on. 'ihero is nothing being
done at present and there cannot bo
at any time anything thai holds the
mind and the attention so spell
bound as the fervid, soul-stirring
appeals of Mrs. Hampson. Wc can
not explain it. Come for yourselves
and hear. E. C. O.
Honolulu, Jan. 8th.
CAUSES AND A REMEDY.
(UY 7,. Y. SQUlltUS.)
Emtok Bui.lktix: I notice that
the silver question and gold law that
look effect Dec. 1st continues daily
to occupy a considerable portion of
onr public journals and a very laige
share of public attention, without
any of our writers being able to
agree upon a plan that will in the
near future lelicvc the people from
financial embarrassment. It is ad
vocated by a number of our journals
that we require to convert an amount
of Kalakaua silver dollars into gold
to replenish the Hawaiian Treasury
willi an amount of gold equal to the
amount of silver certificates now
outstanding and redeemable in Ame
rican gold. Tho Kalakaua coinage
now in the Kingdom probably will
not exceed $900,000. About $423,
40G of this amount of silver is to-day
locked up in the Government vaults.
If these figures are correct, there
cannot be in circulation more than
570,584 throughout the Kingdom.
Now we have in American gold in
the Treasury, not in circulation,
325,000, that can be drawn and
placed in circulation by the holders
of gold certificates at any time ; the
Bank of Bishop & Co. probably can
be set down at 8000,000 more ; pri
vate individuals, wholesale houses,
planters and their agents can be
safely set down as commanding
500,000, making a total of 1,425,
000 .that the holders can expose to
the light of the rising sun any time
when convinced that our gold law
will not be a failure. Now, under
existing circumstances the holders
of a very large portion of this gold
and gold certificates will very re
luctantly place even a small portion
if it in cii dilation in this Kingdom,
unless confidence can be restored by
making radical and sweeping changes
in our laws, which would unite for
eigners and natives upon some
future policy, protecting their in
tetcsts against unsatisfactory legis
lation and Asiatic encroachment.
Any such change would bo hailed
with lejoicing by the people, as giving
encouragement to capitalists to safely
invest their gold and keep it in cir
culation here, so it would be useful
hereafter to themselves and their
descendants. The'amount of 570,
581 of Kalakaua silver, with no
American silver in circulation, is
certainly very small in proportion to
our business transactions and the
number of inhabitants scattered and
doing business throughout our Is
lands, with not too frequent commu
nication with the capital. That
amount of silver coin ought not to
impede a speedy return to a gold
standard, undoubtedly would not if
the largo Chinese clement now firmly
established in our midst were not
strictly dealing within themselves,
and hoarding their profits in Ameri
can gold to be sent out of the coun
try by every oppotliuiity available,
But, sir, we ore leluctantly com
pelled to deal with the situation as
it now exists.
The most important question that
now seems to attract the attention of
our Chamber of Commerce and tho
people is how are we going to keep
gold in circulation, with our busi
ness firms and tho people unnblo to
agree, divided in their opinion on
tlio Chinese question. We Iiavo
nearly 30,000 Chinese here and
daily increasing, and the large and
wealthy portion of them are already
firmly established in every district
throughout our group; bound to
gether in secret societies, to strictly
patronise am! protect each oltior
against the whiles and natives of the
soil ; controlling a large portion of
our mercantile trade, and the wholo
of our lico and vegetable produc
tions ; supplying tho native of the
country with food raised from his
soil; furnishing nearly seven-tenths of
the plantation laboreis, consequently
receiving scvcn-lcnths of all moneys
paid for plantation labor. Tho gold
law that we are endeavoring to put
in force will supply and allow the
Chinese laboicr to set aside and save
in American gold his wages over
and above his necessary expenses.
This Mongolian stiangcr has been a
curse to all civilized nations where
he has been allowed to encroach. He
has succeeded here in artfully secur
ing the patronage of the native peo
ple and a portion of our foreign
population and the unanimous patro
nage of his countrymen. These nro
facts that require very serious con
sideration by the Hawaiian Govern
ment. (7'c) be concluded in our next,')
