HOMES FOR THE PEOPLE.
A correspondent, who is evidently
in full sympathy with our advocacy
of. a landed peasantry, favors us
with some observations upon the
position of the land question here.
The measure making it incumbent
upon the Government to sell public
lands to the highest bidders, which
our correspondent finds fault with,
is, we should think, to a large ex
tent superseded by the act passed
last session, "to facilitate the ac
quirement and settlement of home
steads." It cannot take a reader of
the Bui.li-.tin- Ions; to learn that it
exalts organization as a requisite for
effecting any material good of the
community as a whole. This matter
of settling the land is no exception
to the rule, and to secure the ful
benefit of that timely measure wc
consider it necessary to have some
sort of colonization association.
Such an organization is required to
work up an inteiest in the soil
among those classes of our popula
tion who would be benefited by
taking up farming for a living, and
to further facilitate the acquirement
and settlement of homesteads to
those who are n liable to grasp even
the privileges of the liberal measure
above referred to. Tlie same asso
ciation, or another one, is needed to
assist in providing independent
homes in the vicinity of the town
for another class of people. To
keep a high grade of skilled labor
and help in our factories, shops and
offices, it is essential that comforta
ble houses should be available for
mechanics, clerks, and so forth, at a
cost that would not run away with
the greater part of their incomes,
and leave them liable to be turned
out of house by a sudden stress of
adversity from 3ickncss or failure of
employment. One of our leading
business men, who by practical test
is demonstrating the marvellous pro
ductiveness of our soil and climate,
has urged upon us the desirability
of such nu organization. Citius the
examples set in Chicago and other
largo cities, ho is confident that
comfortable homes for persons of
moderate incomes could be provided,
by that means, in the suburbs of
Honolulu, for little, if any, more
than they now expend in rent. They
could also have more ground than is
usually hud off for each tenement
cottage, and being their own they
would take more pains in cultivat
ing it. Once the ground was paid
for, its occupant had homo secure
from tho blast of any ordinary re
verses of circumstances, and a valua
ble auxiliary bourco of living, If
these and other methods of improv
ing the condition of the country
and the people commend themselves
to the minds of those who are able
to put them into effect, nothing but
a grave dereliction of dutyjwill allow
our worth to pass by unheeded as '
merely n m'tftinclury fulfilment of'
duly to llio publisher of (his paper
Willi it contemporary wo most hear
tily concur in saying that this is one
of the finest Utile countries llic sun
shines upon, but as ycl It Is only so
from natural conditions. Thcio is
room for an infinite amount of exer
tion, energy and intelligence in
developing its capabilities.
Tlie action of Congress, in throw
ing out the Mexican and Nicaraguan
Treaties, looks as if a cold day for
Reciprocity had come round in
Tlie long looked for .lap lias
arrived, and all who have seen him
think well of him. If ho be used
well, morally as well materially,
the country will, we hope, be much
the better of him.
Training would undoubtedly be a
benefit to the police, as a corres
pondent advises. Indeed, tlie only
occupation that docs not require
training is running a newspaper.
That only demands "cheek" and
the mechanical skill to clip the news
out of foreign papers after the
steamer comes in. So are we told.
A series of explosions occurred in
the Parliament Buildings and Tower
of London on Saturday afternoon,
Jan. 2-1. The House of Commons
was partially wrecked, Gladstone's
seat being torn to pieces. There
were sixty visitors in the Tower.
Thirty-four persons altogether were
injured, some dangerously. We
have not space for further particulars
A correspondent of the Advertiser
suggests the adoption of meters to
prevent the waste of water. There
is no doubt waste as much as any
thing else causes the shortage of
supply which necessitates expensive
new works. A great deal of water
is wasted in the Government yard
by leaving the sprinklers going all
night. One objection to tlie meter
system would be the difficulty of
landlords in restraining tenants from
waste. The service and its cost
can never be brought into just pro
portion, however, without measuring
DEATH OF REV. FATHER DAMON.
Father Damon passed peacefully
away to his long rest Saturda' even
ing, shortly before seven o'clock, iu
the presence of his family. During
the past week he had been in an
unconscious state, with the excep
tion of about five minutes on Wed
nesday, when he awoke and bade
farewell to his wife and family. The
immediate cause of death was in
flammation of the brain. The de
ceased was born in Holdcn, Mass.,
on the 15th of February, 1825. He
studied for the ministry and was
selected by the American Seamen's
Friend Society of New York to be
their Chaplain at Honolulu. On the
Oth of October, 1811, lie was mar
ried to Miss Julia Sherman Mills,
and on the 10th of March, 1812,
they sailed for this port, arriving
here the 19th of October of the same
year. A year later he founded the
Friend, and had kept it up until
December, 1881, when he disposed
of it to the Rovs. Cruzan and Oggcl.
About a year ago, in company with
his wife, he paid a visit to China.
lie had previously resigned his posi
tion of pastor of Bethel church,
which he had held for forty years.
They returned from China in Octo
ber, in company with their son, Mr.
Frank Damon, aud his wife.
The funeral took place yesterday
afternoon from the Bethel church,
the scene of so many years of the
departed minister's labor. The
church was filled to overflowing.
His Majesty the King, accompanied
by Col. Judd, was present. On tho
platform were Revs. K. C. Oggcl, J.
A. Cruzan, Dr. Lowell Smith and
S, K. Bishop, Pastor Oggcl had
charge of the services and delivered
a masterly address. The collln,
which was made of Kou with silver
trimmings, was placed near the pul
pit mid literally covcic.il with most
beautiful flowers. After the services
wcro over, the coffin was carried to
the churchyard and the well-known
features of the deceased exposed to
view, an opportunity which was
availed of by a large number of per
sons. .Tho remains were taken to
tlto Kminnu Cemetery followed by
n largo number off riends. The prill
bearers wore Messrs. T. 11. Davies, '
J. 0. Carter, It. I Dillingham, (5. (
C. Lees, Goo Kim and .1. Dmis
conibc. Ai riving .at the ccinclcry
the body was lowered to Us final
resting plaeo by tho three sons of the
deceased. How Mr. Oggcl read the
committal service, and then offered
tip a bountiful prayer, after which
the ltctlicl Choir sang two verses of
the hymn, "Jesus Lover of My
Soul." Some most beautiful flowers
wcro placed around tho grave.
A VISIT TO KAKAAKO.
The IlUM.r.nx reporter paid n visit
to llic Branch Leper Hospital at
Kakaako, on 1'riday morning. Ar
riving there, a gang of prisoners
were found at woik carting sand
from the beach to the interior of
the grounds for the purpose of filling
up li large pond, and when com
pleted it will be a decided improve
ment and give more room. Mr.
George Lucas has also a number of
workmen out there moving buildings,
a much needed improvement, and
one that will bo thoroughly appre
ciated bv the kind and good Mother
Superior and her worthy associates.
Wc cannot speak in too high terms
of the noble self-sacrifice of these
ladies, giving up their lives to labor
for the comfort of the poor unfortu
nate lepers. The reporter arrived
at the hospital at a very seasonable
hour, as Dr. Webb had justariivcd
to make his usual daily visit through
the settlement. At the present time
there are 127 patients confined at
Kakaako, in all stages of the disease.
Wc first visited the schoolroom where
a number of little girls went through
a scries of calisthenic exercises, fol
lowed hy the singing of several
native songs. The little things,
though some of them are badly dis
figured, looked as happy as possible,
and took great interest in what they
were doing. Dr. Webb next took
us through the women's quarters.
Here wc found young and old. In
one room two or three were engaged
in making a quilt, otheis were mak
ing straw hats. One poor little girl
was sitting on the verandah in about
the last stage of consumption. She
complained to the Doctor of suffer
ing much pain, lie went, into every
room, and not a patient was missed,
and all gladly welcomed him. An
other little girl, whom we noticed
with very much swollen face at a
previous visit, looked very much
better yesterday. She had taken
her medicine regularly, and said she
felt ever so much better. The men's
quarters were next visited, and wc
were particularly struck with the
order and neatness that prevailed,
indeed, it was so all over tlie pre
mises. The poor unfortunate peo
ple looked as happy and contented
as possible. In conversation with
one, he said it was rather hard to be
confined here from day to day, but
it was the right thing. He had
every comfort and felt contented.
Just as wc were about to leave the
dinner bell rang and the patients
wended their way to the dining hall,
wheic the usual quantity allowed
of beef and poi was laid out for
them. This room and the kitchen
adjoining looked a picture of neat
ness. After taking leave of the
Mother Superior wc returned to
town with Dr. Webb, to whom wc
arc indebted for a. pleasant visit.
He look particular pains to show us
the disease in different stages, and
explain everything. The doctor had
a kind word for every patient and
thc3' appear to think highly of him,
in fact, one old lady was so glad to
sec him thai she embraced him.

THE JAPANESE IMMIGRANTS.
The S. S. Cily of Tokio, fiom
Yokolmiha with Japanese iinmt-
grants, nrrived yesterday morning
about ! o'clock, and anchored out
side. Her anival was somewhat of
a surprise, as bhc had not been ex
pected until to-morrow. She brings
it 18 Japanese immigrants, divided as
follows: Farmers: 010 men, 138
women, 58 boys, 37 girls. Servants:
5G men, 27 women, 11 boys, 11
gills. There is also one male and
otic female with a little girl. Children
under fifteen years of age, 7. They
arc a splendid-looking lot of people
and excited admiration from all who
visited the depot yesterday. The
tug Pclc and a steam launch were
employed, in landing them and their
baggage, which was safely done.
There was not a single death on
board during the voyage. This
morning the Immigration Depot
presents an unusually lively scene
and illustrates Japanese life. All
appear to be well satisfied with their
quarters, they are very quiet and
peaceable, and a better looking lot
of immigrants, as a whole, has never
arrived on these shores before. The
Depot is well worth a visit. Quito
a number of holes have been dug in
the ground, in which they make fires
to cook their rice. A number of
women were busy washing, while
several of the men were making
sandals for the feel. None of them
will be shipped to-day. His Ex. the
Minister of Foreign Affairs paid a
visit to tho Depot this morning.
