SATURDAY, OCT. , 1885.
THIS EVENING'S DOINGS.
Yosemite Skating Rink 7.
Central Park Skating Rink, 7.
In this city, the discussion of
sanitary measures is not calculated
to produce much of what is entitled
polite literati!! c. To poisons of
fastidious tastes, the question of
sanitation is under the uircuiiislauces
entirely too suggestive of unpleasant
ness. It is all the more so when
tiuth and honesty demand that most
offensive conditions be exposed to
public view, that is where they ate
not too well-known already. It is
bad enough for the decent citizen
whose nasal organs aie not dead to
sensation, and whose stomach is not
lined with biass, to be obliged every
morning and evening to ltin the
gauntlet of oiloious sheets and
splashing slop buckets; but it' would
almost 6ccm to be adding insult to
injury, and, " piling on the agony,"
when the very newspapers keep harp
ing day after day on phases of city
life that are abominable to sec, and
exceedingly nasty to think about.
But, let any of our readers who are
afraid of being jaundiced with ai ti
des on sanitation, remember that jt
is not sanitation but the want of it
that is to blame for all the disagree
ableness of the discussion. Sanita
tion is a peifcctly lcfined and refin
ing subject of attention. It is the
absence of sanitation that must bear
the blame for " the thousand smells
and the ten thousand stinks " that
till the air of many of our streets.
The absence of sanitary enterprise
is what produces sensations of dis
gust. Sanitary reform is an exceed
ingly difficult problem in this city.
On many of our streets it is impossi
ble because unnecessary. In others,
it is so beset with peculiar diflicultics
.that it is impossible while nothing is
done to force it upon the inhabitants
whether they like it or not. What
such people like or dislike ought to
be the last thing to be coiiMdcicd.
It is evident that they like their own
dirty ways, and dislike very much
to be interfered with in the enjoy
ment of their unmitigated beastli
ness. Society knows no way of
dealing with such cases except by
the strong arm of leral suasion.
Moral suasion might " keep pegging
away" at them until they were ic
formed, but the process would be
rather too slow to meet present
emergencies. To bring law to bear
on them, in a mass, would be almost
too sudden a mode of treatment. It
might be administered, for a shoit
time, in homeopathic doses, and after
wards dispensed wholesale. A me
dical man was once interviewed bj'
a very sick man, but a man who had
evidently been puttogcthei by nature
for supeiior strength and sound
, rugged health. The physician's
diagnosis of the case resulted in his
prescribing liberal doses of water
and soap to be taken externally, but,
in case a too sudden glow of health
and vigor might alarm the patient,
be recommended him to wash him
self, in sections, day by day, until
be had clcaicd off the whole aiea of
his corporate surface. The medical
practitioner fully appreciated the fact
that nature is averse to revolutionary
measures. He believed in the doc
trine of giaduating progress and re
form with a careful adaptation to
the feelings and perhaps fancies of
bis patients. It is to bo hoped that
the Board of Health will not be in
dicted for paralyzing any of the in
habitants of the pestilential rookeiics
that abound in this city, with any
sudden or revolutionary measures.
To flop down upon these people with
sweeping orders would cieate a
" panto big enough to produce apop
lexy or paralysis. What ! Clean up
their premises. They had lived in
nith nit yjeir thn-s
tion$ftl thwpwt oMlte Board of
liealtb, it would be well to proceed
li' sections. Thoc lofty structures
buckets nre emp
nlly from the upper vetandabs into
the sticct might be experimented on
by way of preliminary mcasiucs.
After the lesidcnts of a couple of
blocks or so in that quarter would
recover fiom the llrst shock of con
tact with tho fiend, Civilization, the
next step in older would be the issu
ing of a decided, conipicheiisivc and
cxliaiislio code of instructions to
all householders to set their houses
in order; this proclamation to bo
followed up, after a reasonable in
terval, by careful, deliberate and
detailed domiciliary visits of inspec
tion to -cc that every pailicularof
the institutions. had been observed,
and these visits to bo promptly
seconded by lines and inipiisonincnt
in the cases of all delinquents. As
a system of sewage is impracticable
here, it is all the more needful that
stioli measures as arc available be
adopted without delay. With regard
to the suggestion that we do nothing,
print nothing and think nothing, but
submit to the inevitable, wc have
only to say that we owe nothing to
the inevitable. The inevitable owes
us health and comfort while wc care
fully observe the laws of nature.
And nature, so far as wc aie aware,
has never tabooed the public health
of this city. But a portion of its
inhabitants, through inexcusable
ignorance, gross slovenliness and
hoggish indolence are inviting disease
and desolation into their own bomes
and the homes of their neighbors.
And if the laws of this kingdom
afford any protection for the inno
cent against the gioss negligence
and filthy habits of the guilty in the
matter of sanitation, the occasion
calls loudly for their immediate and
EuiTou BuLi.iniN : In your paner
of to-day's date (specially brought
to me at my home by a gentleman
who knows that I larcly see the
papers) may be read the following:
"Sunny South, AVaikiki, is said to

One cannot expect a veiy large
lot of intelligence in a daily Hono

be put up witb provided it be true ;
but a scandalous news item such as
you have perpetrated and made
public, intensely personal, and with
out an atom of truth in it, needs im

and I request you will make as full
reparation as you can in your to

F. J. Hills.
Sunny South, Waikiki Road, Oct.
J ml. 1885.,
Major Hills may rest assured
that he was not thought of nor heard
of, in making the statement that has
soseiiously disturbed him. "Sunny
South" is popularly known in Hono
lulu as a territory divided between
many proprietors. Wo are informed,
however, by another resident of the
locality, that there are only three
estates included under the name, or
two more than Major Hills claims
to be the fact. None of those three
places was meant in tho paragraph
complained of. En. Bullktik.
Although Mr. Keiley, whom the
Austrian Government refused to re

he is still-Minister to Austria. The

Some noise is being raised in the

k "The Oahu Court," from tho
!rcw York Advertiser of January 28,
1828 fifty-seven years old. The
copy from which we priut is a clip
ping, apparently, from an English
paper, giving ciedit to the journal
above named. Our typos have been
instructed to "follow copy" -in the
spelling, so thai they must not be
blamed for mistakes. We are in

Eniion Bullltin: Butter in this
maiket is very plentiful I mean the
homo production. In Ihitain and
the Colonics a pound of butter
means sixteen ounces, and its price
varies from twelve to twenty-five
cents for each pound. Here, a
pound means barely twelve ounces,
and the price not less than fifty
cents. Although butter is repoited
more than enough for all demands,
yet it is held at this exorbitant figure,
when half the price would pay well.
The Honolulu tradesman is not to
bo forgotten rather than sell, he
allows tony of potatoes, apples, etc.,
to rot on his hands, to say nothing
of the casks of salmon and other
commodities he dumps into the sea.

dearest and meanest living place in
the known world at tho present time.
