About every two or three years a
name is obliterated from the ollleial
list of the small Hawaiian mercantile
lleet. Another vessel is bought to
supply the place of the preceding
one, and occasionally is rc-nnmed
after her unfortunate predecessor.
To the unobservant eye, there is no
apparent change. To-day a Liho
liho is reported niisMng, to-morrow
another schooner arrives from the
coast, the original name discarded,
and the word Lihoiiho or some other
significant Hawaiian name is painted
on the stern. She is placed on the
Hawaii, Kauai, or Maui route, as
circumstances may demand, and
there being no material difference in
the build of the new vessel and the
old, there is nothing said about the
change. The shipper sends his
goods to the wharf and they reach
. the destination as formerly. It may
be true that a shipment made the
previous quaitcr lias not turned up,
but the order has been duplicated,
and beyond a slight inconvenience
to a few hundred plantation hands
by a temporary delay, nothing of
importance has happened. The
(supposed) vc:sel was insured, the
caigo was insured, so everything is
all right. In fact, it may be looked
upon as a general benefit to all con
cerned. An old craft gone to the
bottom, insuiance money paid up
without a question, a new vessel
built, a second-hand one bought and
a small reserve fund left for Sus
pense Account. Such is the happy-go-lucky
style in which a large por
tion of our mercantile marine has
hitherto been conducted. Let us
reflect for a moment and look at
such an occurrence in its true light.
"What? Has nothing happened?
Has nothing been lost beyond a few
hundred dollars' worth of perishable
merchandise? The answer to these
grave questions suggests another
question or two. "Where arc the
crew, lost or saved ? "Who was cap
tain of the missing vessel, and was
he a competent navigator, both
theoretical and practical? "Was the
first mate able to take sights and
prick off the vessel's position on the
chart? Finally, was there a soul on
board that craft that knew the first
rudiments of navigation?
These and similar questions must
suggest themselves to every thought
ful mind that has a care about a
fellow-being. It is not our duty to
answer these questions, but we feel
a perfect right in asking them.
They arc not intended for any in
dividual in particular, but for Ha
waiian shipowners in general. These
thoughts are naturally suggested by
the recently missing schooner Ka
Moi: ft may bo that the captain
was a navigator and a thoroughly
competent man, but it was not neces
sary, by Jaw, that ho should bo bo.
There is no Hoard of Marino Ex
aminers on these islands. There
ought to be. When a man is placed
in charge of a vessel, he should he
compelled to show a local or foreign
certificate of competency, and in
failing to do so he should be held
not competent to take charge of
valuable property and the lives of
his fellow-beings on tho high seas.
Let a law bo passed as soon as prac
ticable, empowciing the appoint
meaf'of a Hoard of Examiners. Jt
is)ibt necessary to wait until another
vessel is missed and n few lives lost.
Tho marine record already gives a
sufiicient number of appalling losses.
Let TTfiwafi tnle a small leaf out of
the book of that great commercial
nation that carries 80 per cent, of
the world's produce. No foreign
tradiug or coastiug vessel sails the
sca9 under the British flag without a
Shipowners need not fcav an in
convenience fromlho enactment of
such a law. Navigation is easily
learned. There arc lots of white
men on the islands who are callable
of imparting the knowledge to tho
natives (if so bo that it is absolutely
necessary Hint schooners be run
solely by Hawaiians), or who are
willing to take charge of schooners
provided Llicj' get properly paid for
Hut these latter remarks are be
side the main question, Let the in
surance companies take this matter
up and refuse to take risks except
ing the conditions -we have ventured
to tuggest are complied with, and
we feel sure that the steamboat and
schooner owners will find it to their
benefit to have their vessels sailed
by men who, when blown off the
land, can find their way back to a
haven of safety, without trusting to
luck to be picked up by a passing
steamer nr ship.
On the fourth page of this issue
appear an account of the Wyoming
massacre, given by the Chinese
Consul at San Francisco who went
to investigate the matter. It will
be 'een that the perpetrators of the
awful outrages were worse than
javagcEuropeans contract laborers
imported by the Union Pacific Rail
way Company. The results of the
massacre may take a retributive
form against that corporation, for
its efforts in degrading labor to its
As gold goes up. prices go down.
It has always been the case. Con
versely, the establishment of the
silver dollar as the monetary stand
ard would break the deadlock and
cause trade to revive. For while
gold has been rising in value, silver
has kept company with other pro
ducts of human industry, and is,
therefore, a truer measure of their
value. The fall in prices would be
arrested, and men could make in
vestments with a reasonable assur
ance of profitable returns. The
silver dollar has never checked en
terprise. It has stimulated it.
It the above is true, Hawaii ought
to be the most enterprising country
on the face of the earth, and prices
ought to rule very low.
