TO CEORGE AUGUSTUS SALA.
Distinguished fellow-citizen of the
republic of lettcis. Greeting. Your
humble brethren spending tin exile
in this insular paradise arc glad in
the anticipation of shortly welcom
ing you upon the coral strand. With
every demonstration of fraternal
friendship we beckon you to a cor
dial ieception. From the reputation
our adopted country bears in some
quarters, you may be apprehensive
that wc invite your approach be
cause wc are hungry. Well, "c aro
hungry, but not the hunger of the
" fleshly school " distresses us. We
pine for the inspiriting grasp of the
hand that has traced the marvellous
creations of one of the most versatile
and charming geniuses that adorn
the periodical press of to-day. We
long to listen to the graceful flow of
oratory from the lips of one of
those raic men whom reputation
makes no less brilliant upon his feet
than upon the editorial stool.
Whether, however, you can abide
here long enough to alforcl us the
enjoyment of more than the pleasure
of exchanging greetings while the
steamship makes an exchange of
mails, you may be assured that the
literary fraternity will accord you a
more hearty reception than any out
ward signs can adequately signify.
If the too prevalent idea abroad has
adhered to your mind, that this city
of the sea is a community of bar
baiians, the number of hands, here,
upon the ' lever that moves the
world" -will doubtless surprise you.
Our hopes that you will stay a while
-in this country are not all unselfish
speaking for the nation wc would
be dishonest not to confess. Many
who were not trained observers, or
conscientious chroniclers, or skilful
depicters of men aud thing6, havo
' "sojourned here briefly and 'written
all that they did not know about the
place and people, and nothing of
peculiarities whereof they might have
become well-informed. Your high
repute as a living cyclopedia of in
, formation regarding the uttermost
ends of the earth, gives color to the
hope that it may be upon the pro
gramme of your globe-circling tour
to sec the mighty works of nature

pedestals of lava and coral springing
from the vast depths of the sublime
briny expanse. Small specks as this
archipelago foims on the map of the
world, and modern as its authentic
history may be, yet the story of
these -Hawaiian Islands is most pa
thetically romantic and inviting to
the study, amidst its scenes, of the
most noble mind's that human sym
pathies expand. While, therefore,
our country may well covet being

then wc may believe that only tho
most urgent necessity will avail to
ehorten your visit to the Hawaiian
Kingdom to tho brief limit of n, call-

Tho cordial nature of the meeting
of the Sala committee yesterday in
spired those present with tho feasi
bility of a press club.
An example was made in the
Police Court this morning of an ex
pressman, who tried to impose more
than the legal fare upon a supposed
stranger and refused to show his
card of fares when asked. It is a
wonder that drivers of public car
riages do not learn the wisdom,
when actuated by no higher princi
ple, of observing the motto,
" Honesty is tho best policy." Most
people avoid so far as possible a
cabman who is caught in attempted
imposition, and make favorites of
those who act squarely to all and
gonerously interpret the rules for
children and extras.
A DEBATING SOCIETY.
Editor Bulletin: Also I
one of the many who arc silent but
anxiously waiting to see a debating
society organized. The' numerous
advantages offered by an " organiza
tion of such character have been ex
tensively explained by you and view
ing it from your' standpoint there
might, probably, be very littlo to
But now, allow me to direct your
attention to certain other points. No
doubt, there are, like myself, a good
in any foreigners in this community,
who would attend the meetings, if
not become members of a debating
society, with the object of improv
ing in the use of the English lan
guage. I had occasion to converse with
several persons on that very subject
since you opene'd the way for it in
your paper. The general belief is,
that it would be a success ; but there
are a few, who fear the thing will
die out, when the well will dry up.
How can it? If the society was
going to deal with nothing but news
paper talk, then certainly tho object
would soon become stale. But this
fear will be abolished by adopting a
medium, that will keep us in con
stant connection with the public.
Public questions can be dealt with,
that is, the public should be invited
to participate. There may be a letter
box, through which questions and
themes of interest can come before
the meeting. To avoid the introduc
tion of personal, vulgar or "out of
place" matters, a committee must
exist, to examine the nature of every
subject before read to the meeting
by the chairman. Dictionaries,
scientific publications and books of
general knowledge can easily be had,
in case of want of exports or autho
rity.' We all know, that our city
can boast of a number of institu
tions, which are established for the
public good. Very well : but how
much is there to entertain the public?
The only entertainment, that is ac
tually open to and appreciated by
every intelligent person of Honolulu
arc the concerts of our ' Hawaiian
Let nationality, religion and habits
alone. Organize something based
upon the common sense of the nine
teenth century aud every thinking
man will feel at home. Aloha.
