HARD TIMES AND WHY.
One of the problems of this age is
hard times, and how to remove
their causes. As usual, in the solu
tion of such questions, popular ex
planations are wide of tin maik.
Instead of elucidating llie real
causes of financial difficulties and
adopting common sense methods for
their removal, most persons only
mystify matters, making confusion
worse confounded, and thereupon
proceed to dose themselves with
such quack remedies as nihilism and
communism, until they sink down to
the lowest strata of society, where
they find the cure to be worse than
the disease. Low wages for work
men and high dividends for capital
are often cited as the root and ori
gin of hard times, but this theory
seldom stands the test of investiga
tion. Poor harvests, fruitless min
ing, scourges by caterpillars, locusts
or any other calamity cutting off the
sources of subsistence, are always
followed by hard times and much
real destitution. But here is just
where the inexplicable difficulties of
the question, to those who think hard
times due to natural causes, are
met. If hard times are due to the
supplies of nature being temporarily
cut off, how comes it that there is
no diminution in the cry of advers
ity when the products of sea and
land field, mine and forest are
spread around in the most profuse
abundance? It would almost seem
to be a fact in modem society that
the greater the provision nature
makes for the wants of man, the
more clamorous do these wants be
come. One want is supplied only
to suggest some fresh demands, and
so the process goes on, until the
problem of keeping pace with them,
like the algebraist's infinite series,
becomes insoluble. And when the
fact dawns upon us that the sources
of the material universe are not
sufficient to meet every want of life,
leal and imaginary, then arises the
din of man' voices shouting " hard
To ascertain what really is the
matter, it is necessar' to get down
to the bed-rock of honest fact, where
wo find that "hard times," instead
of being the effect of adverse cir
cumstances, is really the cause of
imaginary difficulties. It is, besides,
a misnomer. What is usualty de
signated hard times would, for the
most part, be appropriate' and
truly named " extravagance,"
"recklessness," or "criminal im
providence." Income is limited,
but the wild wants of the recipient
know no bounds and arc under no
control. Probably the majority of
the inhabitants of Honolulu are in
receipt of incomes amply sufilcient
for all reasonable purposes, while
the probabilities are equally strong
that the same persons are no better
off at the end of the year than at
the beginning. Instances arc known
of persons in receipt of largo
salaries, "going it" in such wild
fashion as to land them in bank
ruptcy, when, if a little common
sense had characterized their style
of living, they might have accumu
lated surpluses sufficient, in a few
years, to secure them an honorable
independence. Whore "hard times"
slay their victims by thousands,
"high" and "fast" Jiving slay
j. theirs by ten thousands, Horses
and saloons take the places of homes
in the disbursements of many on
whom fortune's favors have fallen
more in the form of cash than of
v brains, and when the cash fountain,
by any accident, ceases to flow, the
stream of life's enjoyments is sud
denly dried up. And that is not
all. Those who recklessly dispose
of their own incomes are seldom
afflicted with any fastidious
scruples regarding the interests of
others. While the "fast" and
'.' high " living man contemplates,
perhaps, with vain regrets, the wreck
and ruin he has made of his own
fortunes, creditors nlso are almost
invariably left, with lugubrious
faces, to carry heavy balances over
to their Profit and Loss, instead of
to their Cash accounts. Philosopher
Ben Franklin writes a good recipe
in "Poor Richard's Maxims":
"Let your daily expenditures be
one dollar less than your earnings."
LAW AND PROTECTION.
Yesterday a case of nuisance, that
involved atelement of hardship to
ward the defendant, against whom
it was decided, was heard in the
Police Court. A gentleman living
in a house in the suburbs, that the
police make no show of protecting,
keeps a female dog. This animal
has proved itself faithful as a
watcher, to the satisfaction of its
owner, who has to be in a store in
town all day attending to his duties
as salesman. Lately the brute has
fallen possessor of :i litter of pups,
which makes her watchfulness only
keener against intruders. It appears
some young scamps had made 'a
practice of teasing the dog through
the fence, putting her in a rather
nnamiablc temper. The other day
one of the principals in this mis
chief happened in an adjoining yard,
and the dog, recognizing her tor
mentor, bounded at him over the
fence and bit him. Some busy
body, who evidently desires hood
lums and robbers to be protected,
and respectable people to be left to
look out for their persons and pro
perty as they like, seized with
avidity upon the case' and caused an
action to be brought against the
owner of the dog. The law was
clear. There are no precedents for
going behind the immediate offense.
It being established that the dog,
when off its owner's premises, had
bitten a person, the magistrate had
only one course to pursue. A res
pectable householder, on account of
the best available protection he
could procure for his property, had
to pay in fine, costs and damages
an amount of twenty-five dollars.
This is a warning to all who may be
disposed to provide against similar
circumstances to those of the gen
tleman in question, that they cannot
protect themselves at the smallest
risk to even those who wilfully in
vite damage. It would be an ac
ceptable warning, if it was coUpled
with any kind of assurance that the
authorities would protect the per
sons and property of the commu
nity. Unhappily, there is, on the
contrary, reason daily and weekly
augmenting for a general feeling of
insecurity among residents. Burgla
ries, sneak-thieving, fruit stealing,
roost robbing, and even highway
robbery, have of late been alarm
ingly rife, yet with very few excep
tions the offenders go unwhipped of
justice. Chinese peddlers and vag
rants are taking advantage of the
utter absence of police protection in
suburban localities, and thero is no
knowing where their audacity will
end. Cases have occurred, recently,
where Chinamen have walked un
bidden all through private dwell
ings, when they believed no men
were about, and where they have
deliberately stripped rare fruit from
trees before the eyes of helpless
women. Now, good watch dogs are
about as mild a species of protec
tion for premises in such situations
as could be thought of, and a good
watch dog is not one without spirit
enough to resent injury or menace
to itself. There is, however, as will
be gathered from tho abovo case, a
probability that a dog worth his
food may " cost more than he comes
to" in legal liabilities in which lie
may involve his owner. Before,
however, advising our readers to
dispense with canine vigilance, we
should recommend a general cam
paign against the graceless young
hoodlums, for whose idle hands
Satan finds nothing better to do
than spoiling tho tempers of dogs
that are putting the police to shame
by their faithful guardianship. At
tho same time we would recommend
the police authorities to pay more
attention to the protection of the
suburbs! There arc more policemen
lounging about town, day and night,
than thero is need for ; or, at all
events, than are able to ascertain
need for their services. It would
be a benefit to themselves, and some
assurance of security to residents of
the outskirts where, really, there
is most opportunity for marauders
if details of police were given strolls
of duty, daily and nightly, in those
quarters. Then there would be less
necessity for making kennels the
outposts of domiciles, and arsenals
part of house furnishings.
