The dread pestilence of cholera,
noiv ravaging Spain, may at any day
light upon the American continent.
It9 next sttide might be across the
Pacific to this group of islands.
That there is favorable soil for its
germination and development in
Honolulu none here blessed with
average sight and smell can deny.
In the densely crowded purlieus of
this city it would, doubtless, be a
herculean task to have sanitary regu
lations enforced. The difficulty of
the task is the strongest reason vi by
there should be no delay in under
taking it. Should cholera dicad
fully suiprisc the community all un
prepared to lesist its invasion, a
fearful responsibility will attach to
the Hoard of Health. The city
should be at once portioned off into
districts, and each of these placed
under the supervision of competent
sanitary officials, w ith authority to
enforce a thorough cleansing and a
keeping clean of all premises.
An Ohio company has purchased

American, German and Bohemian
by whom the land will be laid off
into farms. The colonists comprise
.130 families who biing to their
homesteads an aggregate capital of
over half-a-million dollars. "What
is being done by colonization com
panies in the United States might be
accomplished in the Hawaiian Isl
ands, if only the enterprise and
capital be forthcoming. A large
landholder hero, as wc somo time
ago mentioned, expressed to us his
willingness to dispose of large, cul
tivable areas for purposes of coloni
zation. Another gentleman, who is
doing a great deal bimself, in practi
cal ways, to develop the agricul
tural and stock-raising capabilities
of this country, has spoken
t very enthusiastically to the wi iter
upon the subject of colonization by
corporate agency. Cannot a con
ference bo ananged for an caily
day, of all public-spirited men dis
posed to inaugurate a movement in
practical shape, for the colonizing
of some of the available agricultu
ral lands of the Kingdom with a de
sirable class of settlers?
tlio community," sayq Iho Monthly,
and then proceeds to nrguc that tho
excess of make over females "is n
national danger, which can be avail
ed onlj by national action, and at
national expense. It is a national
necessity that there should bo a suf
llcient number of laborers to do
the work icquired to be done in
the country, and it is necessary
to have them at u cost within the
selling tuicc of the product of
their labor. If 11 national necessity
is occasioned by tho filling of a na
tional want, it devolves upon the
nation to satisfy the necessity so oc
casioned ; and tho piescncc of male
laboicis being required by a national
necessity, the necessity of introduc
ing females of a like class devolves
upon the nation, and it is the Gov
ernment and not the planteia which
should supci intend and hear the ex
penses of introducing females."
Another atliclo advocates the expe
riment of tunnelling the mountains
for water to irrigate with, which has
been signally successful in Los An

The delegate pays a high tribute to
one of our chief local industries in
these words: "I here beg to men
tion the fact that neither in the Ex
position nor anywhere else in my
travels did I sec any sugar machi
nery that could bo compared, either
in design or construction, to the
machinery manufactured by the Ho
nolulu Iron "Works." Speaking of
the diamond well boring machines
made by a New York company, of
which seven have been purchased by
an Australian Government, Mr.Mars-
den says, ' ' The Hawaiian Govern
ment might with gicat benefit to the
country imitate the example of the
Australian Government, and pur
chase one or moi c of these machines
to develop the dry lands of the Ha
waiian Islands, that only need water
to lender them fruitful and a source
of wealth to the, Government and
people." " Kcmarks upon macera

Dr. G. Martin writes on the value

It is of tho utmost Importance that

Editor Bulletin : The anecdote
which you published yesterday re
garding tho liberality of Mr. Alionn,
reminds me of another in which the
same generous trait was exhibited
by him. Some years ago, the native
Protestant chinch in Wniohinu, Kau,
was burnt down on the Chinese New
Year, from rockets lodged in tho
steeple. Soon after the flic, Mr.
Aliona started a subscription to re
build the church, heading the list
with 8200, and securing by his per
sonal efforts among his countrymen
over one thousand dollars. The re
sult was that in a very short time a
new and beautiful edifice sprang up,
costing some 83,000, which now
stands a monument alike to Chinese
and Hawaiian liberality. I have
known Mr. A. for ten years past, as
a merchant, a neighbor and a citizen,
and can truly say that for mercan
tile intcgiity and for the exhibition
of those traits which wo proudly
point to as our Christian principles,
this modest and retiring Chinaman
is not one jot behind the most pre
tentious of my own countrymen.
And I may add, he is only one of a
goodly number of Chinese living in
these Islands, who arc always ready
to assist in good woiks, without ex
pecting that a ti umpet be pounded
in their behalf. W.
CULTUflE AND HAPPINESS.
Now life is not only what wo
make it, but it is, very largely, what
wo think it is. If wo hold before
ourselves constantly, somo dreary
"might have been;" if wo think it
is, in some unexplainablo way, finer
and more exalted to sot ourselves to
a minor key of some miserere, wc
may become in reality very un
happy. There is no law, unfortu
nately, against people's making
themselves wretched. Schopenhaue's
theory is that culture makes for un
happiness ; that the more cultivated
is an individual the more sensitive is
lie to physical discomfoit or mental
troubles, and that he is thereby a
being formed to be jatred upon at
every turn. It is very possible that
the old adage about a little learning
applies to this case. A superficial
culture doubtless increases one's
sensibilities in various ways without
producing a corresponding increase
of resources ; but the deeper culture
supplies these and enables its pos
sessor to bear a thousand trials or
to discover means to surmount them
as may be, of which the more igno
rant individual would never have
dreamed. IJoston Traveller.

THE PLANTERS' MONTHLY.
This valuable pctiodical, July
number, is out on time. Its con
tents arc of a practical sort. There
is not much room left for the editor
to insert the former complaint of
sugar men not giving his leaders the
benefit of their study and experi
ence. Correspondents take up a
large shaio of the magazine. In a
calm and dispassionate manner the
editor discusses tho question, "Arc
the planters responsible for the pic
ponderancc of male Chinese?" The
various sources of labor supply are
stated, and tho Chinese shown to be,
on the whole, the cheapest and in
some respects, at least hitherto, the
most generally picfencd. Facts are
cited which exhibit that, in the caso
of some plantations, the difference
between a heavy deficit and a small
profit has consisted in the employ
ment of the dearer Portuguese labor
instead of Chinese. "Tho evil and
the danger resulting to the country I
from nn excessive male population,
is one which the planters recognize
and feel in common with the rest of

of a new Cabinet. Whatever of
practical good may result from the

affairs is not yet dead iii tho com

A copy of the following letter

Journal. Ed. B. J.
Unitkij States Consulate, )
Hongkong, April 20, 1885. J
Messrs. U. Brewer b Co., Boston:
I have the honor to acknowledge
the receipt of your letter of March
2 informing me that the Collector of
Customs at Boston had exacted 810.53
as hospital dues from the bark Amy
Turner on her arrival there; and
you now ask me to refund you this
sum because I decided when the
crew were discharged here in August
last that, as the hospital tax had
been abolished by the Shipping Act
of June 2G, it was not a proper
charge for the Master to retain
against them. You fuithcr say that
the Secretary of State (Mr. Frc
linghuyscn) infonns you that my
action was contrary to law. I have
no doubt that he instigated you to
make this claim on inc. 1 have also
received from the Depaitracnt of
State a despatch transmitting a letter
from you on the subject, and in
close for your information my leply,
which you can use as j'ou choose. I
am not awaie that I ever had in my
possession any of your money ; there
fore I have nothing to refund to
you. The wages due to the sailors
were paid to them and not to me,
and they went away happy. I have
never seen them since. I am no
more icsponsible for the action of
the Collector than I would have
been for the Master if he had hoisted
the black flag or scuttled your ves
sel. The Collector's having made
the Master pay hospital dues is no
proof of Ins right but only of the
f.act that he got them. If you will
consul General Butler, or any one
else who knows the law, he will tell
you that your remedy is against the
man who look your money. I would
be glad if. you would make this a
test case. Several months ago I
wrote to Mr. Daniel Kelly urging
him to get some ship owner to bring
the question into court. There was
a time when the people of Massa
chusetts did not quietly submit to
illegal taxation. I commend to you
for imitation the example of the men
who, on a memorable occasion, threw
some chests of tea into Boston Har
bor ; and the New England farmers
(guerrillas so called), who on the
19th of April, 1770, carrying resist
ance still farther, as Emerson says,
at Concord and Lexington "fired the
shot heard round tho woild." You
now hear its echoes from the coast
of China. I think it rather hard,
after my earnest but unsuccessful
effoit to relieve you of a burden,
that you should now seek to transfer
it to me. There would have been as
much propriety in the people of Bos
ton asldng Prescott and Putnam to
pay for the powder buint nt Bunker
Ilill because they lost the battle.
And now in sorrow I must say, that
I havo met with tho fate of tho
benevolent stork who pulled out a
bone that was stuck in the throat
of a fox.
