Jl..J MORE LICHT.
A great want of Honolulu per
haps the most obvious one to any
visitor who sees it by night in a
dark season for the first time
is the paucity and luminous
poverty of street lamps. There arc
few defects in our metropolitan ap
pointments which will stand out
more pioininently a evidences that
the city is behind the age than this
one. Neither is there any deficiency
of equipment as an urban commu
nity which can be much more fruit
ful of inconvenience and even dis
comfort, if not worse evils, than the
miserably mean light bestowed upon
our streets. This deficiency merits
a bad name for the community in
point of public spirit. Outside ob
servers can sec palatial residences
along all our principal avenues, ex
hibiting a most lavish expenditure
for private comfort in every respect
of modern refinement. Then, turn
ing to the beggarly array of street
lamps, and to the inclllciency, or the
dilapidation and decay, resting upon
many other of the most necessary
public conveniences, what must be
the inevitable conclusion? Is is not
that Honolulu has a government not
a whit ahead of the happy-go-lucky
management of the rawest village on
the confines of civilization? That
conclusion, moreover, involves the
deduction that those of the people
so governed who have the means of
evading the discomforts of the situ
ation for themselves, and from cir-
cumstanccs possess the greatest in
fluence, arc selfish enough to take
1 no interest in the welfare of their
less fortunate neighbors, who have
to plod their long and weary ways
c ' over the crazy footpaths, full of
J deadfalls and jnantraps bad enough
1)3T day but infinitely worse when no
moon is up to fill up the nieasuic of
' the community's niggardliness of
illumination. At the last session of
the Legislature provision was made
for additional street lamps. Some
of these, at least, have been erected,
and serve to make the darkne-ss in
- their localities a little more visible
than before. Yet on even the best
lighted thoroughfares there arc still
many long and gloomy breaks in the
chain of light that should be con
tinuous. There is no large city in
latitudes away from the tropics
' where ample light upon the streets
is more desirnble than in this city.
Our summer nights are considerably
longer than those of the tempeinlo
zones. Darkness conies on here an
hour or two farther from respect
able bedtime than in those regions.
; As in their summer, so all lound
our year, the evening hours consti
tute the plcasanlest part of the day.
Then is the time for busy toilers of
the sunlit hours to take needed ic
laxation and refreshing air. Moder
ate exercise, such as is gained by
walking, in our delightful evening
breezes is one of the bct possible
antidotes to the lassitude of the
tropics. Yet who that ever come
, off their verandahs or out of their
mosquito-proof rooms, to witness or
.study the city's night life, can say
that the general body of Honolulu's
, inhabitants avail themselves of the
evening delights of 'the climate as
their physical and, mental well-being
, demands? The reasons for this
neglect of rational epjoynicnt and
,v recreation may be vurious, but ono
of them, there can be 110 doubt, is
tho discomfort of a stroll along Lour
dark and forbidding streets, from
the paths being so abominably
rugged and their ruggedness masked
in Crimmerian darkness. There is
yet another consideration, regarding
this subject, which adds to it an
clement of great and grave import
ance. It has been found in cities
abroad that light is one of the very
best preventives of crime and con
servators of the public peace and
decorum. Evil, it docs not require
that Scripture should inform any
man, courts daikncss and avoids
light. It is customary in cities
everywhere for banks ami large
business houses, even upon com
paialively well-lighted streets, to
keep lights burning throughout the
night, and thus the necessity of
special watchmen is to a very great
extent obviated. Also has it been
demonstrated in many great cities
that street lamps have done away
with much of the more expensive
police protection. Can there bo
any doubt that , like beneficial ic
uills would not follow the same
agency here, and in a degree that
would make the required expendi
ture as nothing compared with the
benefit. More light on our streets
would, doubtless, be one of the
most elllcacious means of diminish
ing those descriptions of immorality
that most, curse this city and king
dom. "Whether we are to have gas
or not, let us have the number of
sticct lamps increased in a manifold
degree. It may be folly to go to
the expense of gasworks while there
is promise of cheap electric lighting
before very long. Yet it is greater
folly to postpone, an hour longer
than the need can be supplied,
multiplying the points of illumina
tion by such means as may be
presently available. Let the resi
dents of Honolulu wake up to the
discredit attaching to them for this
we were gofng to say glaring de
ficiency in their communal equipment.
THE ISSUING OF LIQUOR LICENSES ON
THE OTHER ISLANDS.
uv i). m. cnowj.r.v.
We are told that "it is not drunk
enness, but a different vice which
has reduced this people." We all
know that drunkenness is not tho
only vice in this kingdom, or indeed
anywhere. The people of these
islands appear to me to suffer from
several causes among which may be
mentioned inherited licentiousness,
and perhaps a recently contracted
scrofula. But will airy one contend
that drink, to say the least, does not
aggravate these and render the
ciforts of medical skill more difficult
and doubtful? The British Govern
ment recognizes such facts, and in
New Zealand and Fiji protects its
natives by the strong arm of law.
The exaggerations of temperance
papers, we are told, " destroy their
own evidence." As none are quoted
we are unable to judge of the palpa
ble exaggerations." Can we take
up any weekly paper from the States
or elsewhere, and not see a cata
logue of crime attributed by such
papers to drink? Exaggeration? Go
tell that grief-bent, prematurely old
woman, whose gray hairs are soon
to find coveted rest, and who mourns
for the staff upon which she fondly
hoped to lean in her declining years,
her only son, who was killed in a
drunken brawl, that she is exag
gerating her loss! Can she find
words to express the loss of her
child? No, nor language in which to
express her anathema of the legal
ized drink traffic.
"If pure light wines and ales
could be sold at a cheap rate "
they would prove a blessing to
the people." Our fathers tried it
when tho saloon sign in England
read, 'Drunk for a penny; dead
drunk for twopence; clean straw
for nothing," and it did not answer.
In the city of Melbourne wine is
cheap too cheap to adulterate it.
The Government has favored the
sale of natural fermented wines,
and tho result was to increase
drunkenness. Tho most aitistie
blear-eyed sots are found in the
wine shops, where a bottle of wine
is had for 8 cents or less. " Our
fathers drank ale and wine in their
days and wcro strong men, and
those who lawfully use the same
beverages at the present time arc
not behind total abstainers in
strength of body or mind." So
says the apologist but not said so
by facts. Of strength of mind, I
don't know beyond the fact that
medical science and experience
prove that the slightest use of drink
deranges the fine balance of brain.
Carver declares that the smallest
use of such drink would unfit him
i for shooting. The champion ath
letes of the present time aro ab
stainers, a well-known fact. But if
wc deal with the dead past, let us
learn lessons from its sages for the
living present. Through Seneca,
the Roman, wo leai 11 that to argue
that a man may tako wine and
retain a right frame of mind is to
argue that a man may take poison
and not die, or the juice of the
poppy and not sleep. Our own sage
Shakespeare exclaimed, "Oh, that
man should put an enemy in his
mouth to ti'al away his brains!"
So have Scientist and Sage, Philoso
pher and Poet, of the past and pre
sent, united in one verdict condemnation.
