A plurality of languages legally
established is a nuisance in any
country. It is inconvenient and
expensive, both, in a high degree.
Two languages are a grievous
enough burden. When, however,
every language under the sun is
given a recognized status in the
internal commerce, and hence in the
courts of a country, the situation
becomes intolerable in proportion to
the number of nationalities claiming
the privilege. This Kingdom at this
moment would appear to be in a
very unsatisfactory position in that
regard. As the old saying goes,
the Chinese have it in their power to
"buy and sell" any who have deal
ings with them. Accounts of Chi
nese merchants, in the hieroglyphic-
looking characters of their country's
language, arc admissible as evidence
in the courts. Suitors opposed to
them are largely at the mercy of
Chinese interpreters, who, however
trustworthy in point of honesty,
may often fail in elucidating the
most vital points of a case. It is
impossible that there can be the
same thorough sifting and weighing
of Chinese evidence in any of our
courts, as English or Hawaiian evi
dence is submitted to liy bench, bar
and jury. At the last session of the
Legislature a bill was passed, pro
viding that merchants should be
compelled to keep accounts of their
affairs in either the English or the
Hawaiian language. A great out
cry was raised against the measure,
and a protest against it received
such influential support that His Ma
jesty disallowed the bill. Accord
ing to the letter of a concspondent,
the great crop of Chinese bank
ruptcies now being harvested is
attended by the evils that bill was
designed to prevent. Things are
sometimes done rather rpicerly in
this enlightened nation.
DECLINE OF THE PULU TRADE.
On our first page will be found an
interesting article from our San
Francisco namesake, upon the pulu
trade, its decline and fall. Wo
have consulted the Hon. J. I.
Dowsett, as ono "learned in all the
knowledge of the Egyptians," to
ascertain what reasons caused the
sudden decline In the trade front and
after 187d. Mr. Dowselt said that
the gathering of pulu was from 18G0
to 187o a nourishing industry on the
island of Hawaii. Among its princi
pal conductors were Cnpl. Thomas
Spencer, the late Chief Justice
Harris, Mr. G. "W. C. Jones, and
Mr. Nicholas George, a Greek.
Many people were employed in col
lecting the fibre, and many mules in
transporting it. Mr. George was
the principal operator, and after he
died, Dec. .'list, I87f, the business
fell to next to nothing. His property
was nil sold off at auction, and for a
year or two afterward Mr. Jones,
who is now the owner of Kaliuku
district, Hawaii, carried on the in
dustry. The profit had departed
from it, however, and no attempt
has been made to revive it. When
a market was secured for pulu on
the Coast, the price jumped up from
0 cents to 2fi cents a pound. After
a while it dropped to eight cents,
and then its export was begun to
Australia, where it commanded 12
cents. It cost six cents a pound to
gather, so that it was not a very
lucrative business at that figure.
What prevented the continuance of
the industry, after Mr. George's
death, besides the decline in the de
mand, was the fact that goats, com
pelled by reason of severe drought
to abandon their usual pastures, de
voured the pulu on the mountains.
The natives still collect the article
for domestic use in pillows and
mattresses. Women and children
go out and gather enough in a week
to last all demands for six months.
Thus perished one of the old-time
industries" this Kingdom.
THE CORDON MEMORIAL.
Mr. G. E. Stanlcj-, Her Britannic
Majesty's Consul in San Francisco,
has announced through the press
that he will receive and forward con
tributions to the "Gordon Memorial
Fund." The memorial is to be a
hospital for persons of all nations at
Port Said, Eg3pt. British subjects
the world over, together with all
people who admire the rare type of
heroism of which Gordon was an
example, will feel that they are
honoring themselves in contributing
to this fund. We should like to see
a quota to the grand memorial go
forward from this Kingdom.
Editor Buu.ktin: I am author
ized by Mr. Ittman to say that he
has neither sanctioned nor made the
statement attributed to him in this
morning's lJrcss, with regard to the
maceration process. Mr. Ittman
has no knowledge of this process
having ever been tried in any other
country than Java ; and there it was
tried with a three roller mill, and
with varying conditions of soil and
climate, which he considers deprive
the Java experiment of any abso
lute application to the same process
in this country.
In Java the maceration process
failed, because it was found that
there was too much glucose produc
ed. Mr. Young has made arrange
ments to have the Waiakea juice
analyzed next week, and this will be
an infallible test of the result of
maceration as applied there.
It appears to me to bo treating a
visitor with scant courtesy to pub
lish his opinions, even when accu
rately expressed, without consulting
him. In the present instance the
publication is entirely inaccurate,
and when Mr. Young has devoted so
much time and capital to the devel
opment and practical demonstration
of the value of this process
to the sugar manufacture, 1 think
there need be no anxiety as
to his meeting in an open and clear
maimer all points that may be ad
vanced against maceration. If ma
ceration be not proved to be a success
at AVainkca, no other mill is likely
to introduce it. If it be a .success,
no one will bo more pleased than Mr.
Ittman, who naturally feels greatly
annoyed at the misrepresentation of
his views in regard to it.
This letter has boen submitted to
Mr. Ittman, who expresses his full
Tiino. II. JXvvjjs.
Editou Bumxtin: It appears
that In consequence of recent heavy
failures of Chinese linns in these
Islands, some of our merchants arc
regretting their sentimentality, which
induced thcin to sign the 'Chinese
petition against the passage of a
law, which was to compel business
men to keep book accounts concern
ing their business, and to keep them
in a language bpoken and under
stood in the courts of this Kingdom.
I call it sentimentality, because
this question which treated wholly
and purely n business point, without
the idea or intention to injure any
honest class of business men, was taken
up as if n religious question was in
volved, and was discussed with a
sanguincness entirely out of propor
tion to its merits or demerits.
Laws of this kind exist in all busi
ness communities, as far as my ex
perience goes, and arc decidedly
essential, not only to establish and
maintain confidence and to strip
business of its speculative ten
dencies, but also to protect the con
sumer. And that this is a question which
interests the consumer intensely, is
clearly proven by the fact, that our
importers and wholesale merchants
not having confidence in most of our
Chinese retailers and knowing that
the law, as it stands, docs not pro
tect them against a fraudulent bank
ruptcy of a consumer, have to spe
culate, that means, have to charge
hight profits and run their chances.
The retailer in his turn sells again
for a profit, and the consumer pays
a very high price for what he has to
purchase. If, however, honesty
was enforced by a law, that would
enable the merchants to prosecute
and convict any business man or
partners of a business Jinn, who are
guilty of fraudulent bankruptcy, so
as to expose them as that what they
are, as thieves, cases of that descrip
tion would become as rare as they
are at present frequent. Confidence
would bo restored and business could
settle on a sensible basis ; perhaps
also the exportation of gold might
fall off considerably.
It is a well-known fact that two or
three cases of bankruptcy which
oceurrcd only lately had the word
" swindle " written over the accounts,
and our merchants were unable to
even rebuke the guilty parlies.
My object in writing this is to
bring once more into discussion the
question, whether or not it would be
wise and just to compel business
firms to show, in case of necessity,
that their dealings have been strictly
honest and in accordance with the
principles of Commuiici:.
