PREVENTION OF OVERCROWDING.
It docs not require a very search
ing exploration of Honolulu to con
vince anybody that extensive quarters
of the town arc loo closely built,
and that the buildings so huddled
together are in a large proportion of
cases too densely populated. For a
majority of the population the re
viving and purifying influences of
the trade winds arc neutralized by
these causes. Only the fact that
the teeming denizens of those quar
ters spend the greater part of their
lives outdoors, doubtless, accounts
for the mortality of the city not
being abnormally large. That, how
ever, is an uncertain reliance, for
nobody knows the day or the hour
when an epidemic may visit those
swarming purlieus and kill off their
inhabitants like flics. This is not
supposition, but a warning of expe
rience fresh in our people's minds.
This ever-threatening possibility
makes its facilitating conditions a
matter of the gravest concern to in
habitants who live in more airy and
roomy qiuutcrs, even to the utmost
suburban borders. Pestilence get
ting a foothold in the crowded quar
ters could not possibly be confined
to them, but would spread desola
tion among the homes of all the
city. It seems a hopeless task to
suggest remedies for the dangerous
conditions in question, but neverthe
less is it the duty of the public
journalist to point out the dangers
and give such counsel as he may for
their reduction. So far as the ground
already built upon is concerned, the
application of anything like adequate
remedies must be a herculean task.
Yet if anything is possible to be
done, the community should bestir
itself in devising the most practica
ble measures, so that another session
of the Legislature may not pass
without giving them effect. The
most feasible and least expensive
means that occurs to us is the res
triction of the number of occupants
of a given dwelling space. Then
there should be a check put upon
the area of tenements back of the
buildings with street frontages,
which did not have alleyways or
lanes leading to them of a certain
prescribed breadth. Entrances to
all such lear premises should be
ample enough to admit a good sweep
of air and afford a reasonable fucility
for viewing yards from the main
streets. There is one grand measure
that it is almost useless to suggest,
owing to the poverty of public re
sources for local improvements. Yet
it may be woith while mentioning in
anticipation of an era of gt cater
prosperity. It is the running of
broad boulevards obliquely across
'the nrorc crowded quarters. Such a
thoroughfare opened up fiom the
bridge on King street to, say, Emma
Square, would work a vast trans
formation for the better, botli in
sanitary and social conditions and
facilities for internal transit. This
is the way Faiis and other cities in
different countries, following her
example, obliterated vast pestilential
areas, by letting abundance of air
.and light into them, and making
lots borderfng them sought after as
the sites of respectable shops and
dwellings. Whatever may bo thought
of the last proposition and the pre
ceding ones, there should be no ques
tion regarding measures preventive
of overcrowding in districts yet un
built upon, Streets surveyed long
ago, when ideas tverc more narrow
in that nud other respects, should
not. jbe constructed according to the
original plans. They should be made
at least double the width of tho
average street of the business por
tion of this city. No matter whether
they are expected to be business or
living streets, antiquated nnnowness
should be avoided in their final de
marcation. For the whole city plot
revised building regulations nrc at
this day much overdue. It is an
astounding fact that efforts in this
diicelion, instituted by the AUorncy
Goneml at the last, session, were
stienuously opposed and defeated.
Tlieie is, moreover, a necessity for
an enlargement of the fireproof
limits. Our views upon this point
are already known, and need not
occupy space on this occasion. Let
us only hope that the inhabitants of
this city, of so eminently fair and
favorable a situation, will consider
seriously what is lacking to bring it
to the position so important a metro
polis should occupy in this age and
at the present day.
REPLY TO MR. CROWLEY.
Editor Hi'i.unx : There are
some men so satisfied with the ex
tent of their own knowledge and
attainments that they regard with
contempt all who will not accept
their dictates, and stick at nothing
to silence or hold the obdurate ones
up to ridicule. These worthies be
long to that class

A few days ago you were kind
enough to publish an article of mine
on the issue of liquor licenses on the
other islands. This article has been
reviewed by another of your corre
spondents, who misrepresents me
by saying "the idea was apparently
abandoned as soon as thought of,
and the writer set himself to what
the no doubt thought the easier task
of ringing changes on the word
15y no means, the idea dominated
throughout and I adopted the style
of reasoning which I considered best
adapted to the subject. This will
appear by the terms of the last
paragraph, which commences, "The
writer then has come to the conclu
sion that the issuing of licenses for
the sale of fermented liquors is a
The reviewer next branches off
into a political disquisition and
mixes up his vast stores of historical
knowledge into such a delightful
hotch-potch of confusion that it
would take his hypothetical school
boy to straighten them out for him.
Had he added the torture chamber
and its myrmidons, the sack, thumb
screws and other horrors he would
have made his article more dramatic
if not more relevant to the question
He next tells about some wor
thies who agreed to line themselves
for getting drunk on any other than
certain specified days, but with them
we have nothing to do, believing
that no one has a right to get drunk
From the physiological stand
point it is pretty certain that more
men kill themselves by o cr-eating
than by over-indulgence in fer
mented liquors. Such at least is
the experience of trained und prac
tised physicians nine to one is the
proportion I have heard hence it
follows that in the gentleman's
creed all solid food should be in
clude (aswell as wine) in the class
of poisonous drugs.
My critic thinks that any Sunday
school boy could correct my display
of ignorance in believing that all the
wine of antiquity (commonly used
as a beverage) contained spirit. I
do not require such assistance, as I
can refer to authorities in which I
place more trust; but I have no
doubt such boys would speak as
they have been taught. On the
other hand I do recommend my
very learned reviewer to ask any
boy moderately well read in history
to set him right on matters I have
already touched upon, as well as ou
his ancient quotation, whose hoar
and venerable antiquity actually
dates back to so remote a period as
a trifle befoie the middle of last
century, and then was it by an
error of the poet? the lines ap
peared in an inverted position to
that in which they arc now placed.
The definition of the word "wine"
in "Worcester's dictionary, edition
1810, is this: "The fermented
juice of tho grape. A liquid resem
bling wine in flavor and qualities.
The spirituous product of fermenta
tion." This agrees perfectly with
other and older definitions. Now we
all know that fermentation is a natu
ral process by which spirit is gener
ated. AVe likewiso know that nei
ther the juice of tho grape nor any
other liquid containing saccharine
matter can bo preserved for any
length of time in an unfermcuted
state ; that the first fermentation is
a process of preservation instead of
decay as the gentleman would have
us believe, that afterwards comes
the acetous, and lastly tho putrifac
tive fermentation occurs.
Thcso arc the old views which
have hitherto generally obtained.
Some modem ideas have essayed a
change, but facts cannot be altered
by volumes of special pleading.
They remain facts and will remain
facts forever. I cannot pretend to
follow the gentleman in his long and
learned disquisition on Hebrew words
and tho, foreign names of the pro
ducts of the grape. We moderns
have them all in profusion as well as
many varieties of wine, sweet, strong
and weak. His statements appear
to me in many cases to conflict with
each other, but it would take too
long to go through them seriatim.
He dwells on the subject of pure un
fermcuted wine (whatever that may
be) and fermented alcoholic wine,
and in his third paper, whfch is
really a very ingenious production,
he has compiled a sort of tabic
shewing on one side his conception
of what good wine and its qualities
ought to be, and of bad wine and
its evil qualities on the other; but
unfortunately he gives his readers
no information by which they nrc to
be distinguished or where his good
wine is to be obtained. Grape juice
may be boiled and inspissated, but
that docs not convert it into wine
any more than cane juice remains
