"PHYSICIAN, HEAL THYSELF."
The Saturday Press should take
its own prescription, and justify its
monstrous assertions about leprosy,
before calling upon this paper to
prove what it has already proved by
official statistics. We arc indeed
"too proud" to acknowledge error
in a matter where those who gain
said our remarks could not justify
their position. The best answer thnt
could be made against our statement
of Honolulu's unhcaHhy condition
was that the foreign population was
exceptionally healthy in spite of the
' high death rate of the whole. As
much, that, as lo say, " Very
healthy place; only poor natives
dying make the rate so high." That
leprosy has been used for partisan
ends on bchnlf of more than one politi
cal party will probably be admitted by
most level-headed oppositionists of
to-day. Just as good medical men,
and we believe moic of them,
than those who sustain the state
ments and deductions of our con-
. temporary, would condemn its
article of last week as highly exag
geratory and wholly unwise. The
editor of the Press should add a
chapter to his treatise on journalism,
to discuss writers who aro less care
ful of their dignity than of their
diction. This hint is necessary, in
view of the tone of irascibility with
out which our contemporary would
not bo itself in replying to criticism.
The San Francisco Merchant
proves by the pi ices of rice in that
market for fourteen years past that
the effect of the treaty has been to
lower the prices of that article, as of
, other eonnnodities affected by it.
A: letter in JJradstrcet's points out
. that the United States cannot grow
"all the sugar she requires, " by a
;long chalk," and discusses tho
; necessary sources of supply to meet
tho increasing demand. Tho writer
advocates t,hat preference should bo
given to countries which take Ameri
can manufactures in exchange for
their own raw products. Ho then
shows that trade with these Islands
had increased from less .than two
million dollars, bcfoic the treaty, to
twelve millions a year when tho
treaty was in oporation seven years.
Then four millions were spent in tho
"United States on account of Hawai
ian planters and trade in ehipbuild-
iog and' the manufacture of iron
pipes for irrigation, and the sugar
refinery costing over a million in
San Francisco was also a result 'of
the treaty. These are facts that
should tell with hard-headed Americans.
EVANGELISTIC SERVICES LAST NIGHT.
" Wherein lies her wonderful
power?" we overheard one gentle
man nsk another, as they passed out
from Kawaialino church last night.
" In her intense earnestness, and her
command of language. And then,
too, she is a no mean thinker," was
the answer. We asked the same
question of one of our city pastors,
and ho replied : " It is the power of
the Holy Spirit abiding in rt thor
oughly consecrated woman of rare
natural ability." Whatever may be
the correct explanation, there is no
doubting the fact of Mrs. llampson's
wonderful power over her audiences.
Kvcry night large numbers sit and
Hslcn with intense attention for an
hour to her sermons. Last night
was no exception. The ground
floor of Kawaiahao church was wcll
fllled. After the opening service,
JUrs. Ilampsbn announced as her
text, " Behold I stand at the door
and knock (Rev. 3:20). This is a
message from the liscn Saviour. It
is a word of warning to the church.
But the Christ stands at the door of
all hearts. He has come again and
again to your heart. You would not
treat a beggar as you treat him. You
would say to your servant, ' l Dis
miss the poor man kindly if you
have nothing to give him ," but you
let the Christ stand and knock with
out a word.
In many ways Christ knocks:
sometimes with pestilence. When
the cholera came ycais ago to
Liverpool, business was suspended,
theatres closed, a pall hung over the
deserted streets. Every night the
denth-cart came rattling over the
stony streets, and the hoarse ciy,
"Bring out your dead!" sent a
shudder to all hearts. Infidels fell
on their knees. The only busy
people wcic the pastors, and tho
nurses aud physicians. God was
knocking at the door of the hearts
of thousands in that cil y. Has there
ever been anything like that in
Honolulu? But not only with tho
hand of terror, but with the hand of
love God knocks. Aye, He never
uses the hand of terror until love
fails. To-night Christ knocks at
your heart with the hand of love.
Why have you felt so strangely this
week? It was God knocking.
What ys the door? It is a barrier.
An Englishman's house is his castle.
If he chooses to lock the door the
Queen herself dare not break it.
You can close the door of your heart
against God, if you choose. God
will not force it.
But, " If any man hear my voice
1 will come in and sup with him."
An earnest appeal closed this
intensely interesting sermon. A
number of inquirers remained to the
AVe deeply regret having to an
nounce the death of George II. Fas
sctt, manager of the Hawaiian Hotel,
which took placo shortly after half
past twelve o'clock this afternoon.
The deceased was chatting pleasantly
last evening, but this morning he
complained of not feeling well. Drs.
Trousseau and Arning were called in
and did everything possible but to
no avail. The immediate cause of
death was effusion on the brain.
George II. Fassett was born at
Brighton, Monroe Co., New York,
November 27th, 1815, and is conse
quently a little over 3!) years of age.
His father and mother, who arc still
living, reside at Rochester, New
York. He has been a hotel man all
his life, and has been connected with
hotels in New York, Long Brauch,
Milwaukee, Chicago and San Fran
cisco. He came to these islands,
April 9th, 1883, expecting to bo em
ployed at the Hotel. However, Dr.
McGrcw, tho then lessee, was ex
pecting a Mr, Grecly, so Fassctt got
employment in town. Gieely soon
afterwards left nnd Fassett took his
place, where he has remained ever
since. He was a most genial, kind
heai ted fellow, respected by every
one he came in contact Avith, and
one who thoroughly understood his
business, and made many friends.
Tho deceased was a member of
Mystic L,odgc, K. of P., Corporal
in tho Honolulu Riflesj member of
Honolulu Boat Club, Foreman of
Engine Co. No. 1 , and also a Royal
Arch Mason, though wo believe it
was not generally known. In politics"
he was a solid Democrat. His
funeral will take place to-morrow
afternoon at 3 o'clock from the
