THE WATEtt REVENUE.
On Saturday we criticised the bad
system of collecting the water rates
which obtains in Honolulu. The
observations made on that occasion
in part voiced a series of loud com
plainings t)iat had arisen when the
edict first went forth, this year, that
there must be a complete squaring
-up of accounts for the water service.
But a complaint eveh more general.
and one more easily brought home
to the Interior Department, relates
to the disposal of the water revenue.
It is well-known that the water ser
vice of Honolulu is in a very in
efllcient state. Equally patent is it
that the Legislature has granted a
comparatively liberal appropriation
for the extension and improvement
of the waterworks. And it is
notorious that a large amount of
money was spent for water main
pipes, that for two years or more
have lain by the roadsides and upon
the harbor front, subject to sorious
deterioration bv the influence of a
climate peculiarly damaging to
metals. All this time the excuse
given "for projected improvements
not being carried out, is want of
funds. The sharp manner in which
water-rates were recently exacted
ought to have done something to re
lieving the great distress in the
water works department. The want
of funds has been met at least to
some extent by the recent collec
tions. Persons who were arbitrarily
mulct in water rates that they didn't
owe, footed tlioir bills rather than
have their water supply shut off.
Now, however, some of them have
discovered that they 'have paid for
tlieir water supply in advance, and
that their water supply lias aKo, for
the most part, ceased. Householders
finding their faucets dry. evening-,
can retire with their parched throats
to dream of the wondrous clllcienuy
of the Honolulu "Water Works, in
collecting moneys while they are
unable to return value therefor.
That the scarcity of water in some
parts of the city is due to the
masterly inefficiency of the Water
Works Department has been nmply
proven by the collections of the
past month, when the department
was compelled to admit that the
duties of its olllcials had.bcen gross
ly neglected during past years.
Householders who have paid their
water-rates in advance are entitled
to have their supplies maintained
intact; and if the works are not
sufficient to maintain that supply,
they ought to be made sufficient at
HOW THE BALANCE IS PRESERVED.
Dr. Kleiber, of St. Petersburg,
estimates that 11,435 tons of mete
oric dust fall on the earth every
year. Surely, says the London
Atienuitmi, so large a yearly in
crease to the weight of the earth
must, unless there is some compen
sating influence, produce some
change in our orbit. There is a
confpon'sa'ting influence, distinguish
edly learned contemporary, right
here. The million tons of dust
hourly raised skyward from tho
Honolulu streets and sent journey
ing to the neighboring planets
deducting the small quantity caught
on the wing by the lungs of tho in
habitants must constitute an ample
eoih'pensatipn for the few cartloads
of rubbish from the meteoric quar
ries which disturb tho balance of the
London editor's lucubrations. "What
else but the upward rush of our
cosmopolitan nsheg prevents the
Krakatao dust from settling In the
Pacific and thus depriving us of those
beautiful, intermittent, chromatic
Hesperian glows that are wrecking
the constitutions of Hawaiian chick
ens, by making them keep late
hours to see the show right up to
the fall of the curtain, when the
spectators disperse to their respec
tive roosts to the strains of "Hawaii
Ponoi," all retiring highly pleased
with the evening's entertainment
and with one accord pronouncing it
a grand success? Readers must
excuse our enthusiasm when Science
takes a ride on the roller coaster of
The annual meeting of .the Royal
Hawaiian Agricultural Society, to
be held at the Hotel this evening, is
an event that no person interested in
the agricultural development of
these islands should overlook. At
this meeting the election of olllcers
takes place, and the public have
been invited to attend. The So
ciety's objects are the improvement
of stock; of plantation, farm and
daily produce; of grasses and
forage plants, trees, shrubs, fruits,
flowers and vegetable ; and the pro
motion of pisciculture, within the
kingdom. A comprehensive mis
sion, that leaves very few people
the well-known Hawaiian
whose cartoons on various
cal questions during the
years lias alforueu considerable
amusement to the public gener
ally, is now reported to be in desti
tute circumstances. Messrs. J. M.
Oat, Jr., & Co. will receive any
contributions that a generous public
may feel inclined to offer."
.The above statement appeared in
this morning's GarMtc. The party
named is not destitute, and not in
need of the public's generosity, as
stated. The above no doubt origin
ated from some person who was not
satisfied in seeing the elllgy again
displayed in the late cartoon on the
Honolulu Fire Department, which is
now on exhibition at J. M. Oat, Jr.,
& Co.'s torc. Respectful- yours,
John L. Rr.is.
THE TARS AND THE " PRESS."
Emroii lii'Mxux: Either the
wicked man of the Advertiser must
have put up the sailors from the
Satellite to enquire for lodgings at
the J'rcss olllce, or the air of rollick
ing Roliemianism which character
izes the edifice must have misled the
poor fellows. The story is very
ludicrous, however. It was kind,
indeed, of the editor to "smooth"
over the fact of a sailor falling from
his horse at the jMakiki Cricket
ground, but it would bo interesting
to know what disaster was averted
