THE REVERSE SIDE.
Transient visitors to Honolulu,
especially those who are hospitably
looked after, naturally take away
the"inost favorable impressions of
the oceanic city. Those that arc
writers for the press, particularly
ones of a poetical temperament, pro
pagate far and wide pen-pictures of
the place of the most luxurious des
cription. Driven about in a few
hours' stay on the best roads,
through the plcasantest quarters and
the most picturesque scenes, their
accounts of the city represent it as
the acme of an clysian metropolis
of the living, a day-dream vision of
repose for the highly-favored mortals
whom destiny has made its deni
zens. These ilowcrj' depicturings
of Honolulu cannot be said to be
exaggerations. Their authors sec
all that tlicy paint. "Whatever is not
real in their colorings is only what
their imaginations suggest of life
in the midst of such delightsome
material surroundings. It is the
truth they tell, but not the whole
truth. Indeed, it is not for them to
give such complete testimony. As
to the actual experiences of life
here, they could at best give but
hearsay testimony, which may be
ruled out of court. Such hear&ay
testimony as their enthusiastic enter
tainers would give tlicni could
scarcely be of a nature to assist
much in giving shade to the picture.
We should be grateful to the re
Dned minds and facile pens that
celebrate the praises of our habita
tion abroad. There is no occasion
for us to laugh in our sleeves for
what they omit to tell of the con
ditions of life here ever-present. So
far as they go they are conscien
tious witnesses. The elements of
beauty arc here. Beauty herself
reigns over the whole scene of our
existence. She has thrones in our
charming valleys and on our en
vironing mountain summits. She
bathes her feet in the sparkling,
waves of harbor and ocean, and the
spray dances on the roaring reef at
the motion of her wand. She holds
receptions in the gardens aiulpalatial
grounds of the town, picnics under
' the lordly palms, and rests amid the
cool verdure of teeming suburban
plantations. There are here, how
ever, conditions of existence which
dull the senses of those who endure
them throughout the year, perpetuul
summer though that is, to all the
outward luxuriousncss and beauty.
Strangers within our gates for a
brief day cannot realize those con
ditions and need not bo called to
testify of them. It is for the resi
dents who have experience of them
to take them into practical consider
ation. They should be metanior
phosed by public spirited enterprise
into conditions that would be some
what in keeping with all the delights
of the scene. It is possible to make
of Honolulu a metropolis that, as a
desirable place of abode, will beggar
the most ilorid imaginations to over
do the coloring of the reality. What
is required to produce a consumma
tion bo devoutly to be wished? hi
answer it is scarcely too high an
. ideal that we present in the following
list of most manifest necessities :
1. Kapid transit.
2. Good sidewalks.
3. A hundredfold more light at
4. Prevention of overcrowding of
buildings and their tenants.
TrrimTmiriiiyi irrgnynirWirViTiir)raTra7iiiil iimwrr mri-m- rrirnnnSMfc
5. Enforcement of strict sanitary
regulations, involving thorough
cleanliness in every nook aud
6. Enlargement, increase and per
fection of popular recreation grounds
and breathing spnecs.
It is our deficiencies in such res
pects as these that our kindly visit
ors pass through without seeing or
revealing. These form the other
side of I he picture.
THE ISSUING OF LIQUOR LICENSES ON
THE OTHER ISLANDS.
HY 1). 31. CIIOW1.UY.
Knnoit llii.i.r.Ti.N : In the paper
in your issue of Friday on the above
subject, that portion of the Privy
Council which voted for liquor
licenses on the other islands have
found an elaborate, if not an able
apologist.. The special purpose of
the writer is stated to be to ascer
tain whether " the granting of those
licenses is lawful, and, if lawful,
expedient." The enquiry from this
standpoint would be interesting, but
the idea was apparently abandoned
as soon as thought of, and the writer
set hiin-elf to what be no doubt
thought the easier task of ringing
changes on the word "Temperance."
It would have been instructive to
those who perhaps are laboring un
der the delusion that they had seen
constitutional methods of law-making
in England and America, to have
explained to them by an authority
who talks "law" and "expedi
ency," the more excellent mode of
Hawaii in delegating to the nominees
of the King, without the aid of
a parliament, the severing of such
a gordian knot as the one in ques
tion. As -it stands now, students of
history have their imaginations carri
ed back to the days of the first
Charles, when that merry monarch
had only one use for a paliament:
but neither the "Star Chamber"
nor the "Koyal Hook of Games"
and "Pastimes for the People,"
quite succeeded in diverting atten
tion from the pursuit of square
faced, even-handed legislation, nor
the general disgust at the royal im
petus given to debauchery, drunk
enness and its attendant licentious
ness. Your correspondent cannot under
stand total prohibitionists using the
word temperance. One of the earli
est temperance pledges of which we
can iind any record in America ran
thus: "We the undersigned hav
ing become concerned tkatthc use of
ardent spirits is the cause of misery
and drunkenness, mutually agree to
abstain from the use of ardent
spirits with the exception of New
Years," sheep-washing day, Fourth
of July, General Training, Thanks
giving and Christmas, and we fur
ther agree that if we get drunk on
any other day than those signified,
we will pay into the treasury of the
society 25 cents." The historian
who records this pledge tells us that,
"the men who advocated it were
denounced as extremists, zealots,
fanatics and fools," although they
had ale, wine and cider to get drunk
Thus the temperance of fit) years
ago has grown from restriction to
total abstinence, and the word
"temperance" is legitimately re
tained, as, from a physiological
stand-point, the temperate use of
alcohol can no more be defended
than the use of any other poisonous
Your correspondent quotes Scrip
ture to support his theory of the
existence of only one sort of wine
the intoxicating "from the earliest
time of which we have any record."
