Some stiictcr lcgulations seem ft)
be demanded, in the interest of pub
lic convenience and comfort, regard
ing the privileges of builders on the
public streets. The other day at
tention was called to piles of lumber
left on the sidewalks, with no light
at night to wnrn pedestrians of
danger to their shins. This was not
suggested by main building opera
tions, but by cases of internal repair
and the stock-in-trade of caipcntcr
shops. If that grievance docs not
coinc within ordinary police super
vision, it would be interesting to
know what in Honolulu does. We
are talking now, however, of the
privileges granted builders - ith res
pect to utilizing the streets for their
own purposes. A lesser proportion
of the sttcct than is at present allow
ed ought to be made to do contrac
tors. Then there should be the
prescription of proper fences and
walks around the piles of material,
with lights at night to indicate their
location at a distance. Again, the
time during which the street may be
obstructed for a siuglc building
ought to be definitely limited. It is
out of all reason that main thorough
fares should be blocked with vast
piles of brick or lumber so long that
they become objects of archaeological
curiosity, on account of hitches that
may occur between proprietors and
contractors, or delays in getting
money, labor or material. It is to
be hoped this matter will be made
the subject of legislation at the next
session of the Legislature.
REPORTED NEW INVENTION.
A discovery is announced to have
been made in Germany, whereby
sugar can be got from cane without
crushing or boiling. Electricity and
alcohol arc the novel elements of the
invention. If there is anything in
the story, a revolution may be shortly
expected in sugar manufacture. It
is said that absolutely all the sugar
is extracted by the process, and re
quires no refining ; furthermore, that
the, cost of the required plant is
trifling compared with that of the
machinery used in existing modes.
It would bo a great thing for these
Islands if the sugar could be shipped
in a refined state from the planta
tions. That would be an advantage
that could scarcely be neutralized by
the reduction in price the invention
might cause. The report is almost
too good to be true, but the day is
past for becpticism of the powers of
inventive genius, until the achieve
ments claimed arc proved fictitious.
"Action's" letter in this
issue wc have expunged sonic per
sonal criticism, which would be ad
missible only if its objects were now
voluntarily before the electorate,
The paragraph in ycslci day's is
sue, commented upon by the Adver
tiser, regarding the absence of men
tion of Blaine at the Grand Army
convention in his own Slate, was
suggested by the stress laid upon
the fact in a poition of the American
press. It was noted as tho strangest
thing ahout tho festivities, that, while
Logan was accorded a continuous
ovation, the roan whose name pre
ceded his on the Presidential ticket
was silently ignored. Notwithstand
ing that Blaino is not a veteran, a
statesman of his prominence and his
relations with tho hero of the hour,
might have bceu expected to bo
called to the front when his State
was reciprocating honors with the
saviors of their country.
Ediiok Bulletin: "As you
claim to bo a Free Press,"-! hope
you will allow tnc my turn now, to
say that if your correspondent, who
hides his impatience for action un
der the above signature, is welcome
to lake me for a green hand, I have
evidently the right to judge, from
his logic, that ho is far from being
green. I am afraid ho is too ripe,
in fact a musty old fogy, who does
not like to sco any one have any
opinion on anything outside of bis
antiquated notions, and my reason
for this idea is that extraordinary
statement of his which still perplexes
me in his answer, viz.: "the idea
that any election would influence a
change is a fallacy long ago ex
ploded;" and for fear of his not
being well understood, he repeats at
the end, "if we wait for election to
do anything, it would only be an
other great mistake."
Well, then, dear sir, if waiting
for election or constitutional means
to work a bad government into a
good one, is only a "fallacy" and a
"great mistake," pray, what 'arc we
to do and how are wc to act? Do
you mean to bay that our only re
source is shouldering a rifle and
calling down here some French Com
munists or Irish Dynamitisers to
blow up Palace, Barracks and Gov
ernment House? If so, why don't
you speak out and especially why
hide behind a petty nom dc jlume
your brilliant personality, around
which wc would all flock, as around
the rising star, the wanted leader?
And then the chances arc that you
would not have long to remain
"Awaiting Action."' Or else, do
you mean to say that anything but
servile resignation to the present
status is useless? In that case what
are you awaiting action for?
1 now wish further to dispose of
some minor points of the panic cor
1st, I might agree theoretically
with him that in a country like this,
the Minister of Interior ought to be
the first of all, as it was formerly.
But as wc must at present take
things as they arc, and not as they
might or might not be, I placed in
my enumeration the Minister of
Foreign Affairs first, as it now
stands. And 1 then put Mr. Mar
ques' name to it, because I consider,
on very good reasons, too long to
give here, that 'gentleman the best
qualified of all others in the country
for that peculiar department. But
Mr. "Awaiting Action" must not
cither make so little of the Minister
of Foreign Affairs, for that is the
one which specially deals with for
eign immigration, and let him not
forget that immigration is the only
way of saving this country.
2ndly, 1 am glad to sec that
the man that I proposed as best for
the Interior Department is so cor
dially and enthusiastically endorsed
by your correspondent, but I can
not accept the energetic Mr.Godfrey
Brown to be replaced by Mr. J. O.
Odly, As for Mr. Dole's name,
I respect it, but for mc, all honor
able lawyers' names arc equal, and
Mr. Hartwell, I think, has no blem
ish against his character, as some
kind of a sneer in that letter might
induce us to think.
ithly, Concernincr the others'
names suggested by my "ripo" ad
versary, who is perhaps a newspaper
man himself and feels sore at having
been left out of olllcc, I should 'like
to enquire how many arc citizens
here, and consequently eligible?
And 1 now wait for "Awaiting
Action" to come to Action.
THE POLITICAL SITUATION.
Kditoii Bulletin : My name hav
ing been of late brought out rather
conspicuously in your paper, much
to my surprise and as much against
my wish, this, I consider, givens mc
a kind of a right for asking of your
kindness to allow mc place, when
convenient, for expressing some of
my views on the matter.
To start with, in what regards
looking out now for who would or
would not make good Ministers, it is
I think altogether premature and
useless : premature because there is
no actual probability of any change
in the picscnt administration taking
place, neither now nor until the
meeting of the future Legislature ;
useless, because when the King does
change his Ministers, cither through
outside pressure or tluough his own
wish, ho will probably choose the
men he likes the best, not those best
liked by the public. Thercforo I con
sider that both your correspondents
which I shall call Action No. 1
and Action No. 2 arc on a wrong
trade. It is not future Ministers
that wc require looking out for at
present, it is for practical "leaders"
for tho next legislative campaign.
And this lends mo to a most sur
prising heresy formulated by Action
No. 2, which if allowed, as I am
afraid it, will, to stand uncontra
dicted might be the source of
untold mischief in our small political
circle. Action No. 2 says that,
"the idea that any election would
influence a change is a fallacy, that
MuajniBX'i i ' Lump fiijaaniMjauiajLiwnMiaUMuMMJiMiMiriiwiiiu i. liiwunMUMmmwwaiwttaiiHiiuiiiii tiiliiiiWixafctMwJuueuuaji.MiwiJWilwiii'iitilW
is long ago exploded;' aud further
ho emphasizes his idea by ndding,
"If wo wait for elections to do any
thing, it will only bo another great
mistake, 20 members vs. 20 Nobles
and four Ministers and tho King's
veto." "What the number of mem
bers and Nobles has to do in this
peculiar matter, I am quito at u loss
to understand, for the House has
never once stood 28 independent
members ngainst 20 dependent
Nobles and -1 subservient Ministers:
on the contrary, the Nobles have, as
a rule, been the most independent
and patriotic voters, but perhaps
Action No. 2 has not yet boon long
enough in tho country to know that.
At any rate, here is the heresy:
if "waiting for elections" to do any
thing, and expecting any change out
of them, is a "fallacy, a great mis
take, long ngo exploded" (by
whom?) then what is the use of our
good, independent members who
fought so valiantly, and did, against
all odds, so much good work at the
last session, what is the use, I re
peat, of their running at all? And,
further, what is the use of the press
cryiug down the abuses, what is tho
use of any one occupying himself
with politics, with elections, with
reform, with organization, with get
ting in more voters and selecting
"leaders?" All that is bosh, if
Action No. 2 could be right, and I
will leave the answer for the public
to give, who will probably ask him
also what kind of action lie is await
ing. But if he really means what ho
says, he evidently cither has been
bought up by Mr. Gibson himself to
write stuff that may discourage the
ignorant voters and prevent them
from doing their duty and helping
their share, to change the actual
statu quo ; or else there is some
thing wrong in the equilibrium of
his mind. And, moreover, all the
chances arc that if he had to lift up
the mask under which, he prudently
hides, we would find out that he is
not even a voter.
About the names that have been
discussed, I have nothing to saj',
except that 1 am proud of always
being put into such good company.
I will, however, take this occasion
of repeating that I fully agree with
all the praises that have been bes
towed on Mr. S. G. Wilder. I con
sider this gentleman the best man
for the Interior Department, the
only one who can help to save the
country from its rapid slide towards
ruin. I have the greatest respect
for what Mr. Wilder has already
accomplished and rest the greatest
hopes in what ho could yet do, and
I like his uniform, courteous, gen
tlemanly public behavior, which is
not common in our public men. Mr.
Wilder is evidently to be one of our
sheet anchors, if ho will help the
country when his time comes.
As lor my own name being brought
out and discussed, I have nothing to
fear from publicity, but, although
thanking so many of my friends
amongst which I must not forget to
place Action No. 1 for their kind
opinion about the possibilities of my
being capable of doing some good to
this, my adopted country, 1 would
rather them keep the subject for the
proper time. When that comes, if
the unanimous voice of public opi
nion pointed to me as a useful
helper, then I might consider whe
ther I should bo what Action No. 2
calls -"big fool" enough to accept
office or not, and I doubt what the
decision should be. But, at any
rate, if 1 did accept, "to save the
ship before it is too late," two things
I could warrant, and these are, 1st,
that I would servo the country as a
duty, not for a job ; 2ndly, that I
would serve it with the utmost free
dom and independence from any
clique, or clan, or sect or party;
and that is more than a good many
men here could say for themselves.
A LITTLE DARKEY'S SACRIFICE.
A negro and his family living on
the Decatur division of the Louis
ville and Nashville Railroad recently
attempted one of the most sensa
tional swindles of tho day. There
are ten children in the family, and
the husband and wife find it hard
work to feed so many mouths. At
a family council it was finally de
cided that one of the children should
sit down on the railroad track and bo
run over by a passenger train. The
parents would then sue the company
for damages, with which the remain
ing youngsters could bo fed, clothed
and educated. One of the boys was
so much struck with the project that
ho volunteered to sacrifice himself
for the good of tho others. Shortly
before tho train was due ho took his
seat on the track and waited. The
train came thundering along. Tho
little darkoy held the fort. He was
true grit until the engine got within
about ten feet of him, when ho gave
an unearthly yell, and with a bound
into midair made tracks. The
authorities investigated tho matter
and tho above facts came out. St.
