People should, he careful, in tak
ing in strangers, not to be them
selves " taken in and done for," as
the saying goes. One of the queer
things about human nature is that
people arc often found liberal with
their conlhlencc where it is most
liable to be abused, while reserving
their trust when it is sought by per
sons the least in a position, even if
they had the will, to betray a friend
or helper. The Honolulu public
occasionally gets a severe lesson of
caution in this matter, but as only
the few victims are exercised there
by, the many who hear of their
suffering only pause to plume them-'
selves upon being wiser than the
common inn of people. But, as
lightning is aid never to strike
twice in tho same place, so each
successive case of a successful con
fidence game has generally fresh
subjects. So, therefore, if a record
were kept, it would probably be
found that the list of victims of mis
placed confidence formed a strik
ingly, if not startlingly large pro
poftion of the average community.
Reference is not made hcicin to the
proverbially liberal spirits that form
an clement of blessing to every
community that is not utterly given
over to selfishness. Such persons
are often " out and injured" as a
consequence of their benevolent
actions and public-spirited practice
of lending a helping hand wherever
a' brother man or a fellow citizen
stands in need of assistance in the
struggle of life. Such ones have
their reward in a universal esteem
for them which they would rather
have with ultimate poveity as the
result, than the general execration
that irrevocably fastens itself upon
the sordid, penurious, grovelling
character. Those men arc, as a
ride, however, seldom reduced by
their beneficent characteristics to
serious want, when their liberality is
joined with that business sagacity
and accurate perception of human
nature, which have in all probability
been the qualities that assisted their
industry in pioeuring them a com
petence. Thej- stand as social
phenomena illustrations of the wise
man's description, "There is that
scattered! and yet incrcaseth ;" of
the " liberal hand " that " shall be
No. It is not those who assist
honest worth, with a wise discrimi
nation as to priority of claim upon
their aids, who need warning in
connection with this subject. There
are two classes, broadly speaking,
the first of which needs a bit of
friendly advice, while the second
scarcely deserves it. Eirst, there are
persons who cannot descry deserv
ing objects of support when these
cross their path, but who are irre
sistibly drawn by the meretricious
glitter of outward appearances, put
on to deceive, to help every dashing
"adventurer that comes their way in
his conquest of tho confidence and
'coin of the community. When the
inotivo of this class is as it undoubt
edly often happens to be the
Jionorb accruing to tho fastening of
'.new ornaments upon society, the
weakness is to bo pitied while it is
'being condemned. Secondly, we
have a class of people who boastedly
designate themselves " men of the
j'wcjrld," These have, by means
that in many cases may have been
legitimate, obtained a large measure
of popular regard as men of in
tegrity and bquaro dealing. This
'possession may be enjoyed with
liarnilessness and even advantage to
tho community, when it is only used
in behalf of its holders for their
own benefit. It is when members
of this class lend thoir names to the
promotion of the aims of predatory
adventurers, that they place them
selves in antagonism to the interests
of tho community. It is this very
clasi. indeed, that is almost inevita
bly selected by thoxe gentry for a
preliminary campaign. There the
latter find not only the weakness
attributed to the first class men
tioned, but, more favorable still for
their purposes, an inordinate thirst
for boon companionship that, if they
can bting congenial qualities to sate
it, causes the gates of confidence to
be opened for their triumphal entry.
Can any body familiar with recent
doings in Honolulu require that the
description be fntther detailed, to
make it lit a elavs, influential for
mischief, rigid in this city? If we
could make a rule that the com
munity should obey, a remedy for
the evil complained of might bo pre
scribed. It would bo that persons
who"aid and abet dishonest adven
turers to piey upon the community,
should be themselves doomed to for
feit the confidence and respect they
had gained in their legitimate enterprise.
THE SANITARY QUESTION.
A medical gentleman said to a
representative of this paper that lie
did not expect much from the pre
sent Board of Health. It was too
much of a political institution. In
every well-regulated community else
where the Board of Health was a
body of citizens. The present guard
ians of tills city's health did not
have ideas up to the level of modern
scientific sanitation. lie would have
no cesspools allowed to exist in the
city. Sewers, except under the
most favorable circumstances, were
a delusion and a snare. The dry
earth system was the one best
adapted to Honolulu. Its resulting
product could be disposed of, with
advantage on both sides, to agricul
turists as a fertilizer. Many others
estimate the Board of Health at
about the same standard as this
gentleman. Notwithstanding, how
ever, the neglect of that bocty in the
past, now that it has made signs of
action, it is only fair to give it a
chance to redeem w hat is redeema
ble of the past. As to the above
views regarding methods, "we believe
they will be concuned in by most
competent judges who have given
the matter thought.
It is reported that a depositor at
a New York bank a short time ago,
asked for ten dollars in silver as
part payment of a check, and was
informed that there was not that
amount of silver in the bank.
Would it not be mutually profitable
if New York and Honolulu could
swap banks for a few weeks?
The running of a line of .steamers
to Australia by the Canadian Pacific
Kailway Company is contingent upon
the obtaining of contracts for carry
ing the mails. There will, there
fore, hardly be room for it before
three years, since Air. l'earce has
contracted with the New Zealand
Government for that term. The
company will put on a line to China
at the start.
The Florida orange farmers ex
pect 82,000,000 this year for their
orange shipments to the New York
market. How many millions of
dollars worth will go from this port
where the island is divided up into
small farm holdings? This being
an orange-growing climate, the only
icason wiry the orange is not a
source of income to the people seems
to be cither that the people don't
want income from additional sources
or that they don't want to make the
exeition necessary to secure it.
The Government has issued finan
cial returns, in abstract, for the past
quarter. They show that the ex
penditure lias been kept within the
revenue by the narrow shave of
81,008.85. This result is obtained
by deducting the total amount bor
lowcd from tho cash represented to
bo in the Treasury. It is possible,
however, that tho whole amount in
the Treasury has been paid out
since the close of the quarter.
Taken proportionately, the expendi
tures, are well within the appropria
tions in the several departments.
A horriblo discovery was made a
few weeks ago in a Chinatown cellar
in San Francisco. Tho dead bodies
of about 300 Chinese were found in
different stages of decomposition
boxed up for the ostensible purpose
of being shipped to China for re-,
interment. Over sixty boxes were
found, and broken open by tho
coroner, who had them carted away,
without ceremony, to the morgue.
The sickening odors from the sub
terranean chnrnel house had become
so intolerable to persons residing in
the vicinity that a search was insti
tuted by the police with the results
mentioned above. One of the most
disgusting features of the whole
business was the discovery of six
sleeping bunks which a number of
Chinese had evidently been occupy
ing as sleeping quarters.
