One of the very first objects of
Government in this country should
he good roads and enough of them.
Even countries that have railways,
and arc suited to them, make a
great mistake when they neglect
their ordinary roads. Much more
culpable would such a neglect be in
a country, like these Islands, un
Buited to railway systems. Until
this group is hundreds of times
more densely populated than at pre
sent, any project of general railway
building would bo great folly. Of
course street railways in the city
are desirable and almost a necessity,
but they are not in the same cate
gory as railways for trafllc between
different points throughout the
Our roads are gradually improv
ing, there having been great changes
for tho better right at Honolulu
withiu the past few months. Some
of the main roads leading into the
city have been transformed from al
most impassable ruggedness to very
agreeable smoothness, and from the
condition of a slough to that of a
hard pavement. Good, permanent
bridges have been constructed
throughout some of the Islands, and
improvements in roadways in mnny
cases made to correspond. For all
this advancement in the right di
rection let due credit be given to
the Government. Credit, not praise,
for there is too much fuss made
nowadays over the simple perform
ance of duty. No matter how
favorably the present Government's
work in this, or indeed any matter,
may compare with that of former
ones, it must be judged by its own
merits and in the light of the pro
gress of the country. Not a very
great while ago wheeled carriage
roads were not required in the
country, because there were no
wheeled carriages. It would be
nonsense to compare the roads of
this time with those of that time, in
order to find glory for the Govern
ment of the day in tho vast differ
ence. It might, in proportionate
degree, bo unfair to compare the
present Governraeut'fe achievements
with thoso of the immediately pre
ceding one. If a satisfactory latlo
of pi ogress has been maintained,
the people have reason to bo thank
ful. But the fact that, when the
treasury became low, the roads were
made one of the first subjects of
economy, indicates that the Govern
ment does not duly appreciate their
importance. The "unexpected road
balances" that had to be rcvoted at
tho last Legislattuc bears unfavor
able witness against (lie administra
tion of affairs.
Theic can be scarcely anything
more important to this Kingdom than
its roads. Nothing can be more
politic on the part of the Govern
ment, viewed from the standpoint of
self-interest alone, than to make the
public highways among its first ob
jects of concern. A system ef good
roads, ramifying into every cultiva
ble patt of the country, would,
more than anything else within the
scope of Government, add value to
both public and private lands. The
placing of roads, already laid out
and in use, in permanently good
condition would add immeasurably
to the comfort and greatly to the
wealth of the inhabitants. What an
amount of suffering and loss is an
nually caused by bad roads I There
is the physical shock of the jolting
of vehicles and the stumbling of
saddle hortcb ; the wearing tedium
of a necessarily crawling pace ; the
constant care to avoid accident ; tho
wear and tear of animals and vehi
cles ; the loss of time and the waste
of force all these make up a stu
pendous account against bad roads.
Then there is nothing in which a
liberal public expenditure will more
asMucdly commend itself to the
people of bticli a country as this, or
command warmer approval of an
administration, than well-made and
well-kept roads. Everybody has to
use the roads, and their condition
will appeal in some degree to the in
telligence of the stupidest elector.
If some of tho shipping reporters
would make sure and icturn passen
ger lists and manifests to where they
found them in the Custom House, it
would save trouble to the officers
and unmerited censure to other re
porters. All the papers are threat
ened with being deprived of their
usual privileges in this regard the
next time documents aic mislaid by
carelessness of news gathcicrs.
The letter of Mr. Crowley, that of
another correspondent in a former
issue, and several letters in other
papers, show that theic is a very
strong feeling abroad against the
action of the Pi ivy Council in ex
tending the legalized sale of liquor
throughout the Islands. But what
is going to bo done about it? Thcie
does not seem to be enough foice of
public opinion in the Kingdom to
prevent the perpetration of any
wrong hy those in authority.
It is gratifying to learn that the
Japanese Consul is enabled to report
to his Government that his country
men on the plantations are well
satisfied, and more than willing to
encourage their friends at home to
come. We can only hope that the
Privy Council will not at some future
day have the humiliation of knowing
that its extension of tho liquor traffic
has been the means of dcmoializing
that susceptible people and making
them a failure to themselves and to
tho country. At present'that retro
grade policy is the most threatening
clement in the prospects of every
description of labor.
Notwithstanding the lull in the
currency controversy and the com
parative easiness of exchange, there
is still great inconvenience suffered
in local trade from the position in
which the matter is left. Indeed it
is only by mutual concessions and
the waiving, through necessity, of
legal rights, that business can bo
dono at all to any extent. We have
heard of cases where firms doing a
commission business have undergone
serious hardship fiom having to give
concessions to their clients which
they could not get for themselves.
There has beeu a great deal of
talk in the currency discussion
about the Chinese hoarding and
sending away gold. Threo points
should bo noted in this regard.
First, the Chinese have a right to
make what disposition they please of
gold that tlioy got honestly. Second
ly, if there was due equilibrium be
tween gold and silver circulation,
(ho Chinese or any other people
would have more dilllcully in hoard
ing gold than at present is the case.
Thirdly, the Government, if It chose,
could place such restrictions upon
the exportation of gold as would
make it unprofitable to send it out
of the country white exchango was
obtainable at a icasonablo ralo.
EXTENSION OF LICENSES.
Editoii Bum.utix: The friends
of social reform are startled at the
action of the Privy Council in
authorizing the extension of liquor
licensing to the other islands, and
having recently spent some months
in Ililo, Kohala and Wailuku, I ven
ture to speak of what 1 know of
the drink question in those places,
and the causes which probably in
fluenced the action of the Council.
I have no fancy name for tho al
coholic spade. The drink traffic is
ever to me a trafllc in blood, and I
regard the men who engage in it for
profit be they licensed or not
wholesalers or retailers as the
worst enemies to the state, and
their trade as one against which
organized society must, in put e self
defence, wage unceasing war.
Therefote any apparent encroach
ment of this subtle enemy to society
over an established boundary line
is a proper cause of alarm.
And here I remark that this is
not a political question, it should
never be a party question; it is
one in which every resident, be he
voter or not, has a right to be heard,
and one in which every man who
rightly values the natural right to
state protection, and the well-being
of himself and family, will demand
to be heard.
At Hilo, the fust place I visited,
I was surprised at the amount of
undisguised tippling especially
amongst native women but the
solution was at hand. I discovered
that there there were not less than
fouitcen places where the contra
band article could be bought. About
nine of these dealers were Chinamen,
one white man, the rest natives and
Portuguese, all carrying on some
other business ; but the lions' share
ofjthe grog-selling was in the hands
of a Chinaman who runs a dry goods
store. These men and their doings
are well known to the police, several
of them having been fined by the
police judge, who strictly enforces
the law, but none have been driven
out of the business.
Now I can understand an en
lightened Privy Councillor reasoning
thus: "Heie is a large amount of
drunkenness, for the population far
exceeding that of Honolulu, result
ing from a trafllc which the police
are powerless to check. If licenses
were granted to responsible persons,
the authorities would be able to
control some of the abuses of selling
which they cannot do now, and last
but not least, the revenue derived
would be acceptable." This is just
what many honest, but mistaken
men think. I cannot trespass fur
ther on your space or I would en
large upon some of the fallacies of
this logic, but I would respectfully
submit to the authorities, that there
is a wholesome police practico in
other countries, which might prove
of service here ; change the men to
a fresh scene of action at least once
a year. The police are as good as
can be expected, and if they can't
regard an illicit dram-seller as a
great malefactor, they are no worse
than their confreres of an older
civilization, for has not Miles-na-Coppaleen
been the stage hero
of Boucicault, and his potheen
cheered the heart of "Father Tom."
Hoping to return to the subject.
