THE "ADVERTISER" VERSUS
Our morning contemporary, in le-
viewing Pastor Cruzan's sermon of
Sunday evening, says very properly,
"The careful political student and
man of affairs will generally agree
with the preacher ; political tricks
ters, mammon-worshippers, impure
and vicious persons will differ from
him." Now the preacher's "cure
for all tho radical evils that pertain
to American politics" lies in (1)
Christianity; (2) a high standard
of morals and principles ; and (0)
manly men. In this, the "careful
student and man of j affairs" agrees
with th'c preacher, and "political
tricksters, mammon - worshippers,
impute and vicious jicrsons differ
from him." The, Advertiser, how
ever, a few sentences farther on,
enunciates the view that "the cure
for all tho radical evils that pertain
toAmerican politics" lies in"thecn
franchiscment of women." In this
view, the Advertiser differs radi
cally from the preacher, and there,
fore, on our contemporary's own
shotting, "political tricksters, mammon-worshippers,
impure and vici
,ous persons" and the Advertiser all
differ from the preacher.
The S. F. Alia has an outury
against bossistn in politics. Bossisin
is degrading to the electorate and
fruitful of corruption in the public
service. Theie is no use in denounc
ing men who boss constituencies for
their own interests, so long as con
stituents arc addle-headed enough to
submit. The fact is that most men
are easier to be enslaved by political
demagoguery than they think they
are. Men who would repudiate the
slightest leflcction on their independ
ence are practically the meekest ser
vants of paity leaders. Independ
ence exists only in their imagination.
It never b1iows up in their piacticc.
Their colors arc nailed to the mast,
not of their own ship, but the ship
of the paity with which they arc
associated. Real independence con
sists in a man having a mind of his
own, and making his power as a judi
cious thinker toll, through the ballot
box, when occasion requires, or im
pressing his views upon the repre
sentatives of the people, instead of
leaving them to follow any course
their own fancies or private interests
may dictate. When every voter will
take tho trouble to inform himself
correctly on public affairs, and as
sume his full share of responsibility
for the way they aic administered, a
,, sound vigorous public opinion will
be tho result. But while the bosses
are the creators of public opinion, it
need not be wondered at if they keep
it as free from a condition of healthy
vitality as they possibly can.
NO HOME FOR CRIMINALS.
An enlarged extradition treaty is
j proposed to be made between Canada
and the united btatcs, that will pro
vide for the delivering up1, on both
sides, of persons guilty of man
slaughter, counterfeiting, cmtyczido
ment of public money, larceny, per
jury, abduction, child-stealing, kid
napping, burglary, criminal destruc
tion of a vessel, or mutiny on ship
board. Uncle Sam wants to get
some ex-citizens homo again, and
Canada,' too, has a few old friends
across tliu lino that nro very much
muted by uuiuliy persons very iu-
tcrestod In their welfare. If there.
Is to lie no place, nortlt or south of
the international boundary, that can
ho made n lefugo for tho criminal,
probably tho best thing such chat ac
tors can do will be to abandon tho
practice of diabolism, nnd if they
cstti find no other way to dispose of
the slock on liatul, they might "chip
in" and endow n university with
Bob Ingersoll for President of the
Faculty. This "rogues' college"
could, no doubt, after a time, be
nblc to convince tho woild of tho
folly of people who "fear God" and
"louder to Crcsnr tho things that
Reckless driving is an evil haul to
abate in the bcst-icgulatcd cities
abroad. It is, therefore, no wonder
that it should be a crying nuisance
in Honolulu. If our police acted
upon what they can see hourly, in
stead of wailing for information to
be entered, a wbolcsomu fear of
consequences would Boon pervade
the ttholc liibo of Jehu.
There is a movement on fool in
Italy to introduce the cultivation of
the tea plant in that couutry. It is
to be hoped that by the time the ex
periment succeeds there, there will
be another competitor in the market
Hawaii. Mr. Lycan has some tea
plants, brought from China by the
late Dr. Damon, growing under
glass at his place in Kali hi valley.
Tho Advertiser advocates the re
peal of the law prohibiting opium,
because it lias not pi evented the im
portation of the drug. It would be
just as consistent to lepeal tho sta
tutes against diunkenness, or even
inui dor, because they have not abo
lished those offences. Before re
pealing the piohibition of opium,
how would it do to look after the
officials paid to keep the article out?

A few days ago Admiral Porter
met with a severe accident which
came very near costing hiin his life.
While inspecting somo furniture at
Moses' store, in this city, ho had
occasion to go to the basement floor,
which wais very poorly lighted. Tho
iron doors of a largo hatclpvay open
ing into the sub-basement tt'ero not
closed, and the admiral, making a
mis-step, fell headlong to tho as
phalt floor of the sub-basement, a
distance of eleven feet, his head
striking the ladder in .the descent.
Ho was picked up insensible, but
soon'regainod consciousness and was
conveyed home, and lie has been
confined to his bed ever since. For
tunately no bones tt'ere biokcn, but
his head, shoulder and one leg tt'ere
very severely bruised. Although
72 years of age, the admiial is ra-
pidly recovering from his injuries
nnd expects to bo fibottt again soon.

The balloon corps employed by
General Graham to reconnoitre

sents a force which may hereafter
become formidably effective in mo
dern warfare, says the New York.
Times, although the date of its first
utilization in this way comes almost
within the memory qf, some men still
living." The earliest appearance of
balloons'in war was during tho siege
of a fortress in northern France by
Austro-Prussian invaders of 1794,
when an adventitious aeronaut
thoroughly surveyed the Austrian
lines in tho teeth of a heavy but
wholly ineffectual fho directed
against him by the enraged enemy.
The balloou communication kept up
with the .outside world by .Paris
during the German blockade of 1870
is still fresh in public memory.
Poor Colonel Burnaby, one of the
boldest aeronauts of his time, had
daring theories about the possible
use of balloons in war which his own
feats amply, justified. .This project
in ireignuiig a uaioon wuu small
bombs, and dropping them into the
enemy's ranks, has been lepcatcdly
mooted, but not yet tested by actual
experiment. " ' ,
