This country has an undoubted
interest in the question of American
transcontinental canal projects. The
following special despatch from
Washington contains new testimony
in favor of the Nicaragua route:
"Colonel John G. Stevens,, presi
dent and chief engineer of the New
Jersey Railroad and Canal Company,
who has had great experience in the
operation of canals, was recently
sent to Panama to examine the Do
Lesscps canal in the interest of
American capitalists. He reported
against investment in the De Lcsscps
scheme and has 'since, unsolicited,
embodied Ills views us to the Nicara
gua canal in a letter to a gentleman
in this city long interested in canal
matters. Stevens says he was by
no means prepossessed in favor of
the Nicaragua loute, but after care
ful examination ho finds it has the
following unexccptionally favorable
features: First and above all others,
Lake Nicaragua, without which the
route woidd scarcely be feasible.
Practically it obliterates fifty miles
of canal distance, substituting there
for a spacious lake which forms an
immense reservoir, insuring an un
failing supply of water for canal pur
poses in the driest seasons. It
would be didlcult to overestimate
the importance of this feature. An
other function is its being the regu
lation of the heavy tropical rainfalls.
The next favorable points noticed
arc the peculiar litness of the San
Juan Kivcr for slack-water naviga
tion, and -the comparatively lijjht
cost by which it .can bo converted
into a deep, navigable river. Topo
graphical conditions will permit the
construction of locks of heavy lift,
and make it possible to obtain an
clllcicnt system of drainage. These
conditions imply, first, an ample
supply of water; second, security
from lloods ; third, deep water, not
only on the San Juan, but also on a
large part of the canal; fouith,
slight delays from locks; fifth, eco
Wo believe there is enough money
still available for the Panama Canal
to prevent tlio vast sums sunk in it
already from being allowed to go for
nothing. Possibly nay, probably
the opening of either will create
such an increase of commerce be
tween the western shores of the east
ern hemisphere and the Pacific shores
as will very soon find ample use for
Cold water would seem to bo' the
bane of Honolulu. Sometimes, it is
tlio lack of It, 11s the lccent com
plaints of many householders have
testified. Again, it is the aversion
to it which makes tioublo, as tlio
Polico' Court register, daily teeming
with drunks, attests. One of the
reasons given for the swimming club
movement having taken crab-action
is timt the water has been loo cold
of lato to admit of enthusiasm being
promoted in tlio matter !
Cannot the substantial men of the
country take some concerted action
lo glvo tirncllcal effect lo tlio ninny
ideas find suggestions lhntlmo had '
f rcu course for the past six mouths
lo date from tlio culmination of
political excitement at the proroga
tion of the Legislature? Then, by
the lime sorghum cane and beet root
brought sugar down to one cent,
and the Treaty was abolished, if it.
is lo he so, there would bo n m city
brisk firo of now industries and new
productions under tlio Hawaiian pot.
Many people arc asking what has
become of the gaslight project. It
must have gone up in that big bal
loon ascension in San Francisco
lately. Possibly the electric light,
that illuminates many of the prin
cipal streets in that city, casts every
thing in the shape of gaslight
schemes into the shade. In view of
the progress made of late years in
bringing the electric light toward
perfection, we do not know but the
best thing that could be done now is
to worry along with our present
lights until tbo next session of the
Legislature. Then let the Govern
ment bo ready with an engineer's
rcpoit upon the feasibility of light
ing the city with electricity by
means of water power.
The Press lias given a good lift to
the proposed debating society, favor
ing the parliamentary form sub
mitted by us for consideration.
Such a medium of popular inter
change of knowledge, thought and
opinion is n necessity of this com
munity. The want of 'it places
Honolulu in the rear of many smaller
towns on the neighboring continent.
All that wc have heard against the
project has been the opinion of
some, while acknowledging the benefit
it would be, that it could not be
sustained here. There is nothing
like trying, and if six or eight gen
tlemen appoint a time and place for
a preliminary meeting, the result
may resist a good deal of cold
If any people think that the sugar
interest is ambitious, or even willing,
to monopolize the soil, the official
organ of the Planters' Company
in its articles shows the notion to
be a wrong one. Upon the sub
ject of " Homesteads for Immi
grants," the Monthly urges the
desirability of securing for the
country a small-landed proprietary.
It points out that " An Act to Faci
litate the Acquiring and Settlement
of Homesteads " instructs as well as
authorizes the Minister of the Intc
lior to have lands available for set
tlement surveyed in small holdings.
The following sentence near the
close of the article shows that the
planters arc not blinded by their
own interest so as to be oblivious of
the situation : " The position which
we now occupy, of absolute depend
ence upon the sugar crop, is unwise
and unsafe in the extreme."
WHAT THEY SAY.
I'luntera Monthly " Hawaii lias
about as much necil of :i national
coinage as a cat lm3 of four tails."
The Advertiser advocates a supply
of medicine being placed at the Vol
cano House for emergencies.
The Gazette is coming round to
the view of our friend Antishamus,
viz., that Humbug bosses tlio ranch
The Friend" Wc have had too
much of this ' doing evil that good
may come of it' here in Honolulu."
The Pacific Coast" The cus
toms of civilized nations arc grad
ually obtaining a foot-hold in China
and Japan, and who should absorb
the trade thus afforded but the I'aci
fic Coast? AboYouhVtho ultimate
and inevitable abolition of our pro
tective tariff system is, in the minds
of our wisest statesmen, not far dis
tant, and our manufactories ought
to be self-supporting and equal to
tlio change when it shall come."
It is when we come to rejoice in
duty, to take plcaiuic in sacrifice, to
follow justice, mercy, and truth, not
only with the firm and steady step,
but with n loving and tender clasp,
that wc realize the true vitality of

BALANCE IN CHARACTER.
Few persons are possessed of a
perfectly balanced nature. Amia
bility is apt to be allied with weak
ness ; a vigorous, pushing character
is often impulsive, harsh and unjust.
A reflective mind is slow to act ; a
prompt mind is often wrong. So
through all the elements of charac
ter. All the qualities that go to
make up a perfect moral nature
rarely appear in one person. The
physical and intellectual do not pre
cisely conform ; the mental and moral
are not evenly balanced. There are
those possessed of stronger moral
than mental natures. They consti
tute the spasmodic, impulsive ele
ment in society. There are others
whose intellects so absolutely control
their moral natures, that nothing is
admitted that cannot be reasoned
out satisfactorily. There are persons
whose strong animal natures domi
nate all else, and both mind and
spirit arc subservient.
To regulate all these paits so as
to attain a fair degree of equality is
the right step towaid securing what
may be called balance in character.
