The sooner the people of these
Islands adopt the bundle of sticks
as their emblem the better. He
ading together, in public spit it and
harmony, to promote the common
welfare they can do great things.
Divided in aim, effort, and thought,
in respect to material progress awl
moral elevation, they can never hope
to win a proud name among the
nations for'any..listinctivc qualities
or achievements. What is the use
of two persons biting at a single
cherry when they c.in get one apiece?
AViicrc is the sense of surplus capi
tal being pitted in fierce competition
with prior investments in a limited
field, when there arc other large
areas of virgin soil ready to yield
l icli returns to those who will re
claim them? Certainly, competition
is useful as well as legitimate to u
ceilain extent, as a protection to the
public against oppicssivc monopolies.
Hut who that makes any study of
the iudustiial and commercial life of
Honolulu will deny that competition
has been rife in a degree so extreme
as to constitute it one of the great
est bancs to enterprise and to the
public welfare which exist? There
are two or three times as many es
tablishments in some lines as arc in
quired to supply the local market,
while large amounts of monc' arc
sent out of the country every year
for other lines of goods which could
be supplied by home industry that
goes begging for employment. Even
regarding the imported articles,
there are more traders in many lines
than can all make living profits in
anything but exceptional times.
Look at our two telephone com
panies entering upon n desperate
fratricidal war, while the community
cries in vain for capital to give it
street railways ! Heboid the supera
bundant means of inter-island com
munication, whilo the problem of
cheap and rapid transit upon im
portant inland routes is waiting to be
solved ! . Similar instances of the 10
sults of misdirected capital and want
of co-operation might be cited, but
we hope the foregoing remarks are
sufficient to induco our capitalists in
future to pause and consider what
services the public require and would
pay liberally to obtain, before in
vesting money in opposition schemes
against enterprises that havo made
a good fight to become established,
are serving good turns to the coun
try, and fully occupying their parti

THE CENTRAL AMERICAN DICTATOR.
President Barrios of Guatemala,
who has assumed the dictatorship of
Central America, began life as a
plow-boy. Ilis patents were planta
tion laboicrs, with :i weak strain of
Spanish blood in their Indian veins,
lie was a bright boy, and at an early
age left the plantation furrows to
seek an education in the capital of
Guatemala. He became a lawyer,
and in 18G7, dining n stormy politi
cal period, stnrtcd a revolution. The
government of Ccrna, tho then 1 're
sident, was conducted mainly in the
interest of the licb, and the young
lawyer's advent as a revolutionist
was hailed with gladness by the
common people. Ccrna at first re
garded him contemptuously as tho
leader of a band of robbers. Bar
rios, however, overran the country
lapidly by a succession of brillinnt
movements, and would then have
become master of the country but
for being checked by a dangerous
wound, which compelled bis retire
ment to the mountains. Recovering,
he lencwed his revolution, and re
pealed iiis previous dashing exploits
until, in 1871, he was enabled to
make a triumphant entry without re
sistance into the capital. Ilis ad
ministration is said to have been
solely in tho interests of the common
people. He has established schools
for their benefit, and encouraged
the building of railways and tele
graphs. His rule is an absolute
one. The revenue is collected and
disbursed by him at his pleasure.
It is supposed that in his present
attempt to dictate federation to the
various Central Anieiican States, he
counted upon the assistance of San
Salvador and Honduras, but at the
ciitical moment was dcscilccl by Dr.
Zaldivar, President of San Salvador.
With the United States and Mexico
supporting the other States in their
icsistancc to bis pretensions, the
brilliant Guatemalan will have in
finitely the hardest task to carry his
point that ho has ever encountered
since he looked forward fiom the
plow to a world of foi tune and fame
to be conqueiod by sheer force of
brain and character. His almost
ceituin failuie now, however, can
baldly preclude such a man's making
yet a good deal of stir in his part of
the wot Id.
Kansas has now so stringent a
prohibitory law that the liquor traffic
in effect says, like the coon to Davy
Crockett, "Don't shoot; I'll come
down." There seems to be an ad
vancement upon this question all
along the line except in this King
dom. Fiiendly action is being taken by
European nations, to prevent plotters
against the peace or authority of any
of them from carrying on operations
within any other's bounds. The
expulsion of the Fenians from France
is one of the most important checks
3'ct put upon Irish dynamiters.
Tho week before the sailing of the
last Oceanic steamer 872 immigrants

the country seems to be doing up
As illustrating the difficulty of
gotting accurate history even from
conscientious historians, the con
troversy raised by General Grant's
article on the battle of Shiloh in the
February Century is in point. Dif
ferent officers who were in the bat
tle have risen up to question the
General's account in important parti
culars. The article has given of
fense to the family of General Lew
Wallace, the present Minister to
Turkey, who claim that Grant fully
exonerated Wallace, while the lat
ter was enjoying the former's hospi
tality at City Point, of misdoings nt
that battle which Grant's article now
charges him with anew. When par
ticipators in historical events cannot

THE JUDGES' DECISION,
Capts. Cousins, Mist and Fuller,
tho judges in the regatta of Satur
day, met at the lattcr's office yes
terday afternoon to decide the pro
tests entered by the coxswain" of the
Honolulu and Myrtle Clubs in the
six-oared senior race. A letter was
read from Mr. Wundenburg, cap
tain of the Myrtle crew, and the
statements of Messrs. SeelcyandTor
bcrt, the coxswains vvcro heard. Tho
judges then held a brief discussion
together and gavo their decision as
follows : "That the Myrtle Chtb'B
boat turned the bell buoy as close
as was practicable, and that the
Honolulu Club's boat went into
their water and touched their boat,
thereby fouling them. Also that
the Myrtles -fouled the Honolulus
afterward on the homestretch, near
the knuckle buoy, by go'ing into
their water, and that if the previous
foul bad not occurred the race would
have been given to the Honolulu's
boat. On account of the foul at the
bell buoy the race is given to the
My t ties.'"
Y0SEMITE SKATINC RINK.
TUB SKATING MATCH LAST NIQI1T.
A large crowd assembled in the
above popular place of amusement
last evening, to see the two-mile
skating contest. At half-past eight
the names of those entered were
called, and all but one responded.
Messrs. Geo. Markham and .Frank
Cooper were selected as indues. The
course was marked with flags, and
consisted of fifty laps. Following
is the list of contestants who came
up to the sciatch: W. R. Sims, D.
II. Davis, A. Lucas, J. M. McGuirc,
W. Lucas, C. J. McCarthy, Geo.
Huddy, Bcals, and Ah Ming. At
about 20 minutes to nine the race
was started. W. Lucas took the
lead and kept it to tho end, gaining
some every lap. He won in D
minutes and 7 seconds. There was
a tie for second place between Geo.
Huddy, J. McGuirc, and A. Lucas.
To bottle it the trio were set off for
a race of ten rounds, and McGuirc
won. In the main race the winner
gavo a line display of skating, and
was the only one of the competitors
who did not have a fall. Several
dropped out of the race long before
the finish, one having broken a strap.
After the contest the victor was
decorated with a beautiful lei, and
was saluted with cheers as he glided
gracefully amidst the throng. Tho
first prize was SI 5, the second S5.
It may be -of interest to note that
the winner used the Henley skate,
while the skater who brought up the
rear wore a B. & B. The music was
up to the usual excellent maik, and
altogether the evening was a red
letter one iu the record of Honolulu's
pioneer skating rink. The spectators
seemed to thoroughly enjoy the
sport and to be highly satisfied with
all the arrangements for their com
fort nnd pleasure.
A YANKEE FARMER'S WIFE.
She has received a certain amount
of instruction at a public school, then
marries young, and begins her, to
me, herculean labors. It is her part
to perforin all the daily household
tasks with but seldom any outside
aid. She must make butler, milk
the cow, feed the chickens, and at
tend to the kitchen garden, as well
as to her special pet ilower-beds and
vines. Then she harnesses her
horse and drives to a neighboring
town to barter (as no one else can)
witli her butler, eggs and garden
produce. If anything is broken or
out of order in the lioiibc and farm
she mends it, and, being a
woman of infinite resources, she
may even construct some of her own
furniture or paint her fence. Her
"parlor" is adorned with all the
latest absurdities in the way of
worsted work or pressed bouquets,
while her store closet is well stocked
with preserves, and her garret hung
with dried fruits. It is probable
that she has children, and none aro
more thoughtfully tended in all their
needs, bo they physical, moral, or
ornamental. The clothing of the
family, even to their stockings and
mittens, is her handiwork, while'
occasionally a garment is made for
one of the village poor.
But where is her self-culture? say
you. Ah! there is the mystery,
how and when is it accom
plished? And there is no deny
ing the fact, a narrow, provincial'
education it may be, but that is
owing solely to her circumscribed
If you were to enter a small,
common-place, whitewashed farm
house, in any of the straggling New
England villages, which appear little
cue man a cluster of huts in a wil
derness to English eyes rif you were
so bold as to enter iu, and so fortu
nato as to havo an uninterrupted
conversation witli tho mistress of
tho house, you would find hor a
plain, probably faded woman, clad
in neat calico, sharp-voiced and,
sharp-visaged, perhaps, but gentle
in manners, and displaying as sho
talks a well-cultivated intelligence,
and more or less familiarity with
literature in all its branches of his
tory, philosophy, science nnd belles
lettres. You would find her a nioin
her of tho nearest library, and a
subscriber to all tho leading periodicals.
But in order to make this a strictly
truthful account, I must add that
she seldom rends the newspapers,
and is utterly devoid of that know
ledge of current affairs that distin
guishes particularly tiic women of
New York nnd Chicago. But then
consider how precious to her is each
moment of time, and how'far is she
removed from the centre of life aud
civilization! She lias no amuse
ments, no diversions, no trips away ;
nothing but the dull, everlasting
grind. And 3ot is she patient and
never resting from her round of
necessary duties, and Hint, to her,
no less necessary one of self-culture.
Some ouo has beautifully said that
" the hand that rocks the cradle is
the hand that rules the world." The
children of Priscilla or, more cor
rectly, "SaireyAnn" will doubt
leas be rich, and some will call them
parvenus, perhaps, but as for her
grandchildren and great-grandchildren
