There is a great deal of room for
improvement in the means and me
thods of putting out fires in Hono
lulu. As for the means, the Depart
ment must wait, with other important
branches of public service, for a
more replete treasury. Methods
may be expected to improve with
experience, as the' doubtless arc
doing. At all events, it cannot be
for want of gratuitous advice Unit
the efficiency of the brigade would
fail to steadily increase. Like the
running of a newspaper, the fighting
of fire, when that clement has
changed from the "good servant"
to the "bad master," neveu wants
the able assistance of those who can
tell those engaged in the work "how
to do it." Leaving for the present,
however, improvements in the ies
pects mentioned to be effected as
the wisdom of the authorities may
admit their necessity, and the re
sources of the Government affoul
them, we would submit fire preven
tion as a matter that cannot be al
lowed, except at the great peril of
property-owners, to remain iu its
present loose condition. Perhaps no
reform can lie obtained bcfoie the
meeting of the Legislature, as the
preventive regulations upon the sta
tutes, governing the living paits of
the town, are confined to tho state
of "fire-places, hearths, chimucys,
.stoves and stovepipes." It is strange
that our legislators have not deemed
it necessary to place any restrictions
whatever upon the erection of build
ings, their distance from otliors, and
inflammable connections between
buildings, witli the exception of the
chief business quaitcr of tho city.
According to law nothing lint fire
proof buildings may be erected
within the following bounds: "All
thoso parts of the city of Honolulu
bounded by the water front and by
a line running from the said water
front and eighty feet wcsteily fiom
the building lino on the "Ktva side of
Nuuanti street Jto the makai side of
King street ; thence running along
King street to a point eighty feet
distant easterly from the Waikiki
side of Fort ti cot, and thence tun
ning eighty feet from tho Waikiki
aide of Port street to the water front
And also all those parts of tho city
of Honolulu comprising the lands
now reclaimed or which may here
after be reclaimed from the land of
Waikahalulu makai of Queen street."
Why such a stringent protection
against firo should have been adopted
for the business quarter, and noth
ing whatever done to guard againBt
th freo course of fire among the
homes of tho people, is one of those
things no fellow can understand
llml is, none who nro noi puiuiits m
tlic ways of llnwaiian legislation. ,
Wlillo the circumstances of tho city
would not permit of the prescription
of llicproof buildings throughout the
whole town, yet the necessity of
using wood ns the almost universal
building matciial should have dic
tated sonic icstiicUoiis upon build
ing methods. In the lato fire it was
seen that thcic was ti combustible
train of sheds and fences connecting
buildings already loo close together
for safety. The great daugcr of
having wooden buildings of more
than one story in a thickly-built sec
tion was also manifest. Yet the site
of that lite was by no means excep
tional in dangerous conditions. On
the contrary, it was not to be- coin-
pat cd with hundreds of other spots'
in the city in that respect. Anyone
taking the most casual survey of the
Chinese quarter, for instances does
not need to diaw heavily upon his"
imagination .for the possible source
of a terrific storm of firc. which
may be hurled by the winds over the
whole city at any day or hour. If
there is any law or any authority
that can be construed into the em
powering of the fire marshal to lay a
check upon building operations, in
behalf of reducing the danger of
fire, we would strenuously urge that
advantage be taken of it. Failing
such power, then it is the duty of
the press to keep up an agitation for
a comprehensive law upon the sub
ject at next session. Judging from
the experience of the past few
months, there will be no lack of
occasion in the intervening period
for discussing the question.
" A feast or a famine," is the
comment passed upon the fact that,
after a long intellectual dearth, Ho
nol ulu is being favored with a series of
public lectures by exceptionally dis
tinguished men in their respective
spheics. Let all come to the feast,
and prove themselves 'worthy of

The Huicaiian thinks" the news
papers have too much buncomb on
the currency matter, and it, having
been upon more sides ot the ques
tion than any other paper, ought to
be the best judge. It also wants to
be excused from thinking that "all
this talk about currency may be
honest, and in the interest of the
dear people." We are leady to
excuse it from thinking anything,
after trying to harmonize all its ut
terances on the currency within the
space of a few days. Moreover, it
says, "There is something other
than currency back of this whole
matter." So we firmly believe, but
all wo can discover at the baclof it
is a lot of paper that purported to
represent gold when it only stood
for silver. Now, will the, editor of
tho Hawaiian "be honest," as he
counsels his contemporaries to be,
and tell the public what he has found
nt the back of the currency matter.

that the country possesses, and is
