OUR DOUBLE NUMBER.
The double number of the Btu.
i.irris issued yesterday has been
received with great favor. Although
an edition of about eleven hundred
was printed, it is nearly exhausted.
As the typo is taken down, no more
can bo printed, whatever the de
mand may be. Therefore, all who
desire copies for preservation or
sending abroad should apply at once
to save disappointment. It was by
far the largest and best daily paper
ever issued in Honolulu. Our regu
lar advertisers have been given the
full benefit of that stroke of enter
prise, without extra charge and
without having their advertisements
overshadowed by special ones for
the occasion. Business men who
would avail themselves of similar
opportunities in the future should
always keep their names before the
public in our columns.
Scnii-olllcially the Advertiser an
nounces that Mr. Irwin, Hawaiian
Consul-General in Japan, "expects
to despatch 500 men and 100 women
from Japan for Honolulu on May
2Gth ; also, 600 men and 100 woufen
in June, and 500 men and 100 wo
men next July. The children ac
companying each detachment will
be about 15 percent." Mr. Irwin
may come with the detachment to
start in May. It is pleasant to make
a note of the fact that Mr. Irwin has
commended himself to the very
high Opinion of the Japanese au
thorities and press. Ilis exertions,
upon behalf of the industrial inter
ests of this country, cannot but be
duly appreciated here.
It is a matter for regret that tho
proportion of women, in .the pro
mised instalments of Japanese immi
gration, is smaller than in the lot
that has arrived. Counting boys
and girls, the percentage of females
to males, in the steamship load that
came in February, was nearly
twenty-nine. In the importations
of May July, inclusive, tho figures
show a female percentage of but
eighteen. It is an impression upon
ns that an effort was to have been
made to increase the propoitiou of
women above that of the first lot.
If such was promised, as we have a
shadowy remembrance of being the
case, it is to be presumed that Mr.
Irwin found insurmountable difficul
ties in the way of having the desir
able object effected. One of the
most recognized evils of the Chinese
immigration to this country has been
the abnormal proportion of men in
the hordes annually lauding on our
shores. This disparity of numbers
between the sexes is a menace to
the social order of the nation, and
to the existence of the Hawaiian
race. Perhaps the evil can never
be chttkt-A while the two things of

ALCOHOL AND DISEASE.
Dr. Edwin T. Dotibleday,Iegistiar
of the New York Hospital, has
recently published nn analysis of
two hundred and fifty-two cases of
lineunionin treated in Hint institu
tion from April, 1877, to Jnnuiuj,
1885. An oxnininnlioii of Dr. Don
blrtlay's figures shows most clearly
Hie duli'lerions effects of tho use of
alcohol In uullttiug the human sys
tem for lcsisting the attacks of the
above-named disease. Of these two
hundred and fifty-two cases, there
were just one hundred in which
thcio was no history obtained as
to the previous use of alcohol or
otherwise. The results in the
remaining one hundred and fifty-two
cases weio very striking, and will bo
best understood by presenting them
in tabular form:
Ciwus. Hltii Dlcil. l'eie'
Of the one hundred patients whose
previous history as regards the use
of alcohol was not obtained, it is
probable that a large proportion
were addicted to it habitually. In
borne instances evidence to that
effect was obtained on examination
post mortem, and there is the further
fact that the percentage of deaths
was about the same as the average
of the one hundred and fifty-two
cases tabulated above, viz., fifty
three per cent. ,lt will be seen
from the above table, extending over
a period of nearly eight years and
embracing a sullicicnt number of
cases to afford a fair basis for
general conclusions, that the death
rate among the strictly temperate
was only one-half the general aver
age, and only about thirty-seven per
cent ot that shown by the habitually
By an unaccouulablc oversight in
proof reading yesterday, the British
Ambassador, Sir Edward Thornton,
was located in Constantinople in
stead of St. Petersburg.
General McDowell, whose death
was noted yesterday, is said to have
been a man of unusually strong will
though of high temper. Army
officers say he never committed an
unjust act to one of his subordi
nates ; and, while in the army, he
remitted 1,000 years of imprison
ment unjustly imposed by young
officers upon enlisted men. He is
credited with the honor of being the
first to systematize army prison
labor, utilizing the prisoners to im
prove and beautify different posts in
San Francisco. He had been offered
the command of the Union Army at
the breaking out of the war, but
declined, thinking himself too young
to be placed in such a high position.
TWO MONTHS OF CLEVELAND.
Two months ago to-day Mr.
Cleveland became President. Two
months is not a very long time, but
it has been long enough to enable
the new chief magistrate to give the
country ground upon which to base
a judgment of his character. He
has distinguished himself more by
what he has abstained from doing
than by what he has done ; yet it is
apparent that ho is far from being
a negative man. There is now no
body to accuse him of want of
strength of mind. Thdre were
many who did so during the canvass
and up to his inauguration. Mr.
Cleveland is a surprise a very dis
agreeable one to one class of people,
and an agreeable one to all the rest
of the population. Only the
citizens who till the field of
politics for the sake of the har
vest of offices, have been seriously
disappointed in the Picsident. There
are, of course, many old gentlemen
who, while seeking no offices for
themselves, yet deem th'c course of
nature interfered with because every
Republican official has not lost his
place, now that a Democratic Presi
dent lias at last been installed.
These Bourbon worthies, who laid
in their stock of ideas before the
war, and have added but little to
tho collection since, have had their
political morals corrupted by the
evil example set by the opposition
paity. They wore more bewildered
than surprised, however, and when
usage loosens the stiff joints of their
aged intellects they can be trusted
to swear by Cleveland, no matter
what he may do. The Republican
Bourbons arc even more confused
and troubled. For twenty years they
had been prophesying and believ
ing that tho roturn of tho Democ
racy to power would at onco result
in massacres of tho negroes in the
South, the repeal of the thirteenth,
fourteenth and fifteenth amendments
l to the constitution, tho payment of
the Confederate debt, free.tradc, fiat
money and a general wreck of the
I republic. Mr. Cleveland, they find
1 and not altogether to their gratifi
cation is not a f ulfillcr of prophesy.
Since ho has sat in the chair of
"Washington, the government hos
gone on much ns it did under his
Immediate Kopubllcnn predecessor.
Signs of tho cataclysm confidently
looked for by tho llonibon Repub
licans arc not perceptible even to
tho eye of faith. Neither, on the
other hand, are there visible any
signs of the millcnium which, accord
ing to Democratic seers, was to bo
inaugurated immediately upon the
seating of a President of the ancient
creed. State sovereignty, strict
construction and .leffersoiiian sim
plicit, where arc they?
Mr. Cleveland, during tho short
time he has been in olllcc, has shown
himself to bo strong enough to hold
back the wild mob of plaeohunlcrs.
It remains to be seen whether lie has
the breadth of intellect to grasp the
much larger matters which the as
sembling of Congress will bring to
the fore questions of financial and
commercial polic'. But whether he
succeeds or fails in this wider field,
he has inspired a general belief in
his honesty of purpose, and that is a
great thing. His brief incumbency,
moreover, has taught the lesson
which was much needed in some
(punters that this nation is safe,
no matter what party may hold the
reins of power. The people arc the
government, and parties are but
their political working tools, to be
used, mended or cast aside, as occa
sion may require. S. 7 Post,
