The advocacy of a sewerage sy&teui
for Honolulu has for long been a
favorite standby for local journalists
in the ftcqucnlly lecturing dcaith of
subjects Tthich is the natural con
comitant of our insular position.
From the almost invariable tenor of
disquisitions upon this topic, their
authors appear to regard scwct as
the Alpha and the Omega of ncccs.
sai y sanitary conditions. Not wc
are not sure that a sewerage system
is cither practicable or would add
materially to the wholesome condi
tions of this city. In the first place
the expense of anything like an
adequate system of sewers would be
enormous, and beyond all the present
resources of the Kingdom to lay out
upon any one object. The area over
which the city is spread, in
proportion to population, is ex
ceptionally large, which, under
favorable conditions for excava
ting, would make the expense,
' in proportion to the number of peo
ple served and bearing the cost,
greater than in the case of the moie
compactly built cities of the tem
perate zone. But the conditions for
excavating are exceptionally diffi
cult, owing to the hard coral close
to the, surface over the larger por
tion of, the city plot. This in itself
i is a formidable element in thp ac
count. Then the lay of the land is
not' favorable' to'an efficient sewerage
system. Thei'e is too much dead
level throughout the, aica to permit
tho matlcrcmpticd into the sewers
to pass off. Therefore, very fre
quent flushings would be required to
rprcventhc sewers fioin being verit
able attcriesl,of,.pe8lilenee beneath
the homes of the people. To flush
' the great extent of level sewora
would requite an immense supply
and head of water. When the
. amount of water needed for present
'necessities domestic and irrigation
purposes is considered, the provi
sion of the vast additional quota thai
towers would demand seems to bo
utterly beyond all hopo of making,
for many yonrs to come of steady
growth in population and wealth.
"Without perfect means of keeping
tho sewers cleansed, they would in
crease, instead of l. diminish, the
unwholesome conditions of the
cjty. Etch in cities possessing
fairly well inado and kept sewers,
unremitting attention and perpetual
vigilauce arc ncccssaty to prevent
the poisoning of the people whole
sale by sewer gas. Often deplora
ble uiiscliicfria done before the pre
sence of the subtle and deadly agent
is discoveicd, and whenever an in
vestigation of or repairs to scwera
and their connections arc made, as
they must bo frequently, whole
neighborhoods aro subjected to
noxious exhalations for hours and
sometimes days. Thcic arc alter
natives to a sewerage system which
would greatly improve the sanitary
condition of lIonolulu,which wo have
discussed in the past and may re
vert to again. In the meantime, let
us have a good water supply for
other purposes without wailing for
a sewerage system.
1'iiiicc Kismaiek's motive idea in
launching a gi cat German colonial
scheme is represented as being that,
with colonies belonging to the Va
therland to go to, Germany's sons
will not go to foreign countties
whenever they arc old enough to be
useful to tho Empire. An Amcii
can paper regards the idea as an er
roneous one, saying that, "when
men change their homes they go
whcie they think they will do bestj
not where Governments want them
to go," which is probably the truth.
As one swallow docs not make
summer, so one declaration of a divi
dend on sugar-growing docs not
make an era of ptosperity in that
line. Still the fact that more than
one plantation has yielded a pioftt
for the past season is encouraging.
It shows that theie is yet money in
the business, which skill, good man
agement, and improved processes
can got out. Those interested in
leading industries in other countries,
at the present time, would be glad
if they could continue operations
without heavy loss. ,
The Fricn ! is right when it ad
vises people in dull times not to
apply the pruning knife too closely
to their legitimate expenses. This
is a peiiod when the injunction, "Be
not ovei-anxious for the morrow,"
should be lcmembcred. Dull times
ate the best for making improve
ments in houses and business pro
mises, provided the owner;, have the
means, for labor and material can
usually be got lower then than in
hits!; times. Let ihosu who aic
"well-fixed" with this woild'a
goods now remember the mechanics
who have to depend upon day's
wages, and give them a job. Make
one for them.
Emioit Bulletin-: The learned
writer who undertakes in this morn
ing's Advertiser to inform his read
ers as to the meaning of the word
"induction" as used by electricians
reminds me of a self-constituted
"Professor" who in my young days
volunteered to lecture to a country
audience on Electro-Kiology. The
"Professor" commenced his lecture
with an etymological explanation of
the word Biology as derived from
Hi, two ( !), and lofos, a discourse,
meaning therefore the science of the
two-handed animal, i. e. man. Can
not our local "Professor" be in
duced to go over the range of science
in general and correct our ideas on
the model of his lecture on "induc
tion." Ax Asioundui) Studknt ok Scii:xci:.
BONES CONVERTED INTO COLD.
A ton of ordinary bones in the
principal markets to-day is worth
about as much as a ton of Amoncan
pig'iron, and a ton of the best bones
is worth about four times as much.
For a number of manufacturing pur
poses bones are valuable. The or
dinary bones which arc collected
around through the country are
burned, to got the animal charcoal
or boncblack, or converted into fer
tilizers, 'and aro worth about $18, per
ton. There are many fertilizer
manufactories in the country which
grind bones, and some of them also
', Boncblack is generally in good
demand at" good pi ices by the sugar
refineries for filtering, and bones
used, for this purpose yield a bettor
return than when made into fer
tilizers, for which accordingly only
the poorer grades aro used. These
aro the ordinary bodyjbonc3 of cat
tle and sheep, the skull being con
verted into fertilizing material also.
The bones arc cleaned by being
boiled in an open kettle or in closed
tanks under a pressure of from fif
teen to forty pounds. Tho tank
boiicd bones aro very much pre
ferred by the boncblack manufactur
ers, as by this piocess the nitrogen
is removed and the carbon loft.
The leg bones of cattle and sheep
are used for a number of different
purposes. The shin bones and feet
of cattle contain considerable neats
foot oil, about a pint boing obtained
on an average from every four feet
of good sized cattle. The shin and
thigh bones are thoroughly cloauscd
of all meat and grease. The liquor
in which they were boiled was form-
crly Ihrown away, but now a very
fair quality of sizing glue is manu
factured from it. Some shin bones
arc burned for bone-black, or con
verted into fertilizers, but tho bulk
of them aro worked up into knife
handles. The round shin bono
comes from the hind leg, and the
flat from the fore leg. Tho bulk of
the shin bones in the Eastorn mar-'
kets are shipped to Europe. Tho
knuckles of the shin bones arc saw
ed off, and used cither for lamp
black or fertilizers. Shin bones for
knife handles will bring over $10
per ton, but for burning, etc., only
about $25 per ton. Tho knttcklos
of thigh bones arc also sawed off
and ttscd for boncblnck or fertilizers.
The thigh bones tare worth $80! per
ton, and are manufactured into
tooth-brush handles. .' Very few are
