Hard tiniC9 arc nipping, pincning
and crushing on all sides. They
would not be felt so severely ns they
arc if they had only succeeded u
period of average prosperity. The
depression 'vould.bc less comprehen
sive than it is had the sources of the
past very brisk limes been more
t varied. Flush times arc less profit
able in the long run than a happy
mean of prosperity. A few indus
tries yielding enormous profits arc
less valuable than many giving
moderate returns. Tin's country is
learning these lessous by hard ex
perience, and while Ihcy arc not
fullj' learned and put in practice a
speedy return of flush limes upon
the former basis might not lie alto
gether a blessing. ,
Chief among the evil effects of
brisk times, which are not fully felt
until their consequences are made
manifest by the certainly succeeding
hard times, arc extravagance of
living and carelessness regarding
small things. The tendency to ex
travagance is enhanced by the greater
freedom of credit when business is
lively. Before they know it tome
people find that they have not only
eaten each day their daily bread,
but have consumed, the legitimate
supply for many days hence. A
Yankee describing a very heavy fog
is reported as saying that, wondering
how long he had been upon one row
in shingling a barn, he discovered
ho had shingled half a mile out on
to the tog. That will do for an
illustration of the case of those who
arc carried away by the influence
of high prospciily. They arc
shingling out on to the fog
wasting the material that should
form their shelter in coming rainy
days. Extravagant custom makes
improvident trade. Merchants give
credit right and left, and even en
courage long accounts. They also
pile up stocks far beyond present
necessities. Even when contraction
in trade begins to bu felt, these
practices are continued owing to the
keener competition for the reduced
custom. "When the worst comes
tho major part of the trader's assets
consist of uncollected" and partially
uncollectable accounts, and large
stocks of unsalable and partially
shopworn goods. Then come the
despento measures to realize the
"great sacrifices," selling "below
cost"' and auction slaughtering,
which spoil the business for the few
who have stuck to conservative me
thods in their trading and those
who have sufficient capital to carry
them through any ordinary period
of depression. Inattention to little
things has another phase than that
connected immediately with the pre
sent subject, which can be discussed
by itself. Its effects uppn business
arc patent. The neglect of that
"little bill" in a thousand cases, be
cause the one to whom it is owing
can be in "no hurry about it," is a
very serious matter in tho aggregate.
Although, so long as the dealer be
lieves the small debtor is safe he
prefers not to hurry him rather than
risk offending him, yet ho has to
calculate upon not only the present
value of the money to him but tho
chances of his not getting it. The
result has been often set forth: the
whole body of customers have to
pay higher prices for necessaries
A. statement of aggravating causes
preceding and accompanying a con
traction of business will point to tho
remedy the only one to mitigato
dnlness that cannot bo avoided.
That is, tho reduction of tho credit
system and its supcrccssion, so far
as possible, by cash payments at
the very least monthly, settlements
in every retail business. In the
credit system the trader is the mas
ter of the situation and can obtain
fancy profits, but his loss in most
cases counterbalances his gain from
the system. In the cash system Hie
customer rules trade, but at Ihc
same time makes business surer and
safer for the dealer. Rivalry would
under cash lie reduced to the legiti
mate points of qualities and prices,
and incompetent and superfluous
caterers to public wants be excluded
from the race. Both dealers and
customers enn see, upon studying
the question, that both classes would
weather the hard times more easily
by adopting the cash system, and
prevent their recurrence in the pre
sent degree by continuing that
The man wh6 makes only one
grain of dust blow where two blew
before is a benefactor of the race.
The Advertiser has a timely article
on "Bursting Lamps." Lighting
lamps nearly empty, or turning down
wicks to save oil (which it docs not
do), arc dangerous practices.

Honolulu is ahead of many larger
civilized communities in its provision
for intellectual wants. One thing is
lacking, however some organization
where reading and thinking people
can meet upon common ground, to
discuss questions of local and uni
versal interest in parliamentary form.
There are scvor.il fine assembly pla
ces standing closed most of the lime,
whose wall? ought to vibrate at least
once a week with the eloquent wis
dom of the town, now latent, silent
Thinking that our readers would
be interested to know how the above
institution was getting along under
the management of Captain Tripp,
the Buij.i:tix reporter took an early
trip out there this morning. An iving
at the outer door it was opened by
the guard, and soon afterwards the
office was reached. "We were in
formed Capt. Tripp was in the bar
ber's shop, so directed our steps that
way and found him going through
his usual morning shave in the hands
of that well-known barber Wilkinson,
who has yet a little over, two years
to -stay in. The Captain at once
made the reporter feel quite at home,'
and conducted him over the prison,
fully explaining everything seen.
The hospital was the first place
visited. Here ttc found six or seven
iron bedsteads, but at the present
time only one inmate, a Chinaman
who is paralyzed. Adjoining this is
a shed which contained a few pri
soners who were not feeling quite up
to tiic mark. A little further on is
the kitchen now in charge of Joe
Miguel, who robbed Cunha's saloon.
Joe was up to the head and ears in
business, lie can turn out a meal
fit to set before a king. In the yard
near the kitchen is the bath room,
containing three huge tubs, one for
Ilawaiinns, one for foreigners, the
other for Chinese. It was here wc
found Bridges washing his feet,
dipt. Tripp is gradually breaking
him into work by letting him white
wash. He looks as harmless as a
dove. We omitted to stato that
before our arrival at the prison, one
hundred and twenty prisoners hud
been sent out in gangs to work in
different parts of the town. Capt.
Tripp next took us to the room con
taining the poi. It is kept in a largo
tub, and served out to the prisoners
in smaller onc3, tiiey getting ns much
as they want. It looks to bo of line
quality. In case of emergency this
room is sometimes used for sleeping
purposes. At the present time the
prison is comfortably full. Tho
dark cell is close at hand to this
room. It was locked, and no one in
it. Wo next went through tho cells
in the men's department. Each cell
has two hummocks and blankets,
which aro rolled up during tho day.
Wc have visited many prisons, but
never have vfa seen such order and
clennliness as at this place. The
greatest care Las been taken by
Capt. Tiipp to exclude vermin and
ho 1ms succeeded. lndced,'hc offers
fiO cents a head for every little
fellow, but ns yet has not had to
put his hand into his pocket. In
one cell, locked up, was Kcanu, the
murderer. He is only allowed out
during regular exercise hours. Dr.
Anting has inoculated him twice
witli the germs of leprosy, and it 1ms
healed tfp on both occasions. The
women's depnitment has only three
occupants, one, a young native
woman, being in for life. They aro
in charge of a turnkey's wife, and
were busily engaged in making
denim suits for the male prisoners.
Later on, we saw them going to the
laundry, outside of the prison, to
wash and iion. The Captain look
us into his own quarters, which arc
neatly lifted up. He introduced us
to his wife by whom wc were most
courteously lccoivcd. Wc went out
on to the parapet adjoining, from
which a "splendid view of tho town
and harbor may be had. It was
from this place thai the late Jailor
Buckle is supposed to have fallen
and lost his life. In tho store room,
wo found rice, sugar, beans, boots,
straw hats and blankets, all in sepa
rate bins, labelled on the outside.
On the shelves above arc the clothes
worn by the" prisoners when they
arrive at the prison. These are
wrapped, up in bundles, and labelled
with the owners' names, and kept
there until their sentence expires.
The guards' room is opposite and
the doors and windows arc netted so
as to keep the mosquito out. Capt.
Tripp tells us that the mosquitoes
out there arc the size of young
wasps. The prisoners make mos
quito curtains out of their blankets
so as to avoid the ravenous crea
tines. The Captain thinks he will
cover each cell window with wire to
keep them out, and then it will save
the blankets, as they aic always
needing 'repairs, and in the end it
will be more economical. The yard
presented an extremely neat appcar
anccv not a stray leaf to be seen.
Such a, state of things as prevails in
Oahu Prison is seldom met with.
The Captain has done everything
possible to make the place a model
prison, and indeed has succeeded.
We congratulate the Government on
having such a faithful and cfjlcient
servant as Capt. Tripp. No matter
at what time the prison is inspected
it will always be found in the same
order. After thanking tltc Captain
for his kindness in showing us round,
wc left the building very much im
pressed -with our visit.
