THE LATE LORD SHAFTESBURY.
On the afternoon of tho 1st of
October, 1885, passed away that
most eminent (social reformer of the
present century, Anthony Ashley
Cooper, Earl of Shaftesbury, aged
84 years and Ave months. He died
at Folkestone, England, hi the pres
ence of several members of his
family, and his last moments arc
reported to have been of the most
As the late Lord Shaftesbury had
acquired a world-wide fame as a
philanthropist, it is our duty as
journalists to make more than a
passing notice of the deceased. To
quote from the London Times:
"He is the most conspicuous re
cent instance of a man who, born to
great station and ample fortune,
has deliberately devoted a long life
neither to pleasure, nor to personal
advancement, nor to political power,
but to furthering the material, mo
ral, and religious well-being of his
countrymen. The tenacity, indeed,
with which he held to his rather
narrow theological opinions, and tho
excessive asperity with which he
sometimes spoke of those who dif
fer cd from him, tended to limit the
number of those who were in com
plete sympathy with him. But in
the main this narrowness was easily
forgiven, when men regarded his
life as a whole, and considered how
great and how real had been his
practical services. Though he was
perhaps not quite so prominent a
figure of late as he had been twenty
or thirty years ago, Lord Shaftes
bury worked almost to the end, and
may be said to have died in harness.
His health had long been feeble,
but he continued to do what he
could and it was not a little to
further the philanthropic and re
ligious objects to which his life had
been devoted. It is no more than
eighteen months since he delivered
in the House of Lords the remark
able speech which contributed so
much to the issuing of the Royal
Commission on the Housing of the
Poor. He was active till quite
lately in the work of the Lunacy
Commissioners, of whom he was the
chief. Through last season be still
attended, though, of course, not so
regularly as of old, the meetings of
the innumerable societies of which
he was president or vice-president.
Moreover, the number of more
private demands upon bis time for
benevolent purposes was endless;
and some of these were of the most
exhausting kind. Till the very end
he would not give up the chance of
doing what he believed to be useful
work. At last, at the age of 84, he
has succumbed to the complication
of maladies from which he was long
a sufferer. He will be deeply and
widely mourned. It is fitting that,
to a man who did so much for his
fellow-men as Lord Shaftesbury did,
and who filled so large a place in
the life of his time, the highest
-funeral honors should be paid, and
we are glad to learn that these have
been already offered by the Dean of
Westminster. Among the hundreds
of illustrious dead who lie in tho
Abbey none has a better claim than
Lord Shaftesbury to lie in that
The life of this man might he
emulated b' many on these IslandB
with 'beneficial results both to the
native and foreign populations. He
was a practical philanthropist and a
religious man. His main efforts
were to raise the condition, es
pecially the moral condition of the
poorest -of the poor, at the same
time he succeeded in effecting an
immense sanitary reform. Ho pos
sessed a boundless energy and the
list of his good works is innumer
able. His death is looked upon as
a national loss, and, in respect to
the religious and philanthropic, so-
i cieties of London, truly irreparable.

On the morning -of the King's
birthday the Advertiser devoted
over two columns of spaco to an
alleged exposure of the "misrepre
BentationB of the Bulletin," re
specting the Honolulu Rowing and
Yachting Assoolatlou. The force
of the "exposure" uiay be judged
from the fact that the Bcllgxik is
made responsible for the utterances
of members of different clubs and
of the Association itself, faithfully
reported in this paper. We cannot
Tcply to that style of attack. How
ever, the main chargo against this
paper is that its criticisms of the
Association were euggested by one
particular member of the Myrtlo
Boat Club, also a member of the
Association, when a certain member
of another club nnd of the Associa
tion had volunteered to post us in
all matters relative to the transac
tions of thnt organization. As to
this complaint, it is enough to say
that we claim the right to choose
our sources of information. Yet we
may add that our contemporary is
altogether astray as 4o where our
facts were obtained. The gentle
man who has become the cynosure
of its displeasure only had his views
presented once or twice in the con
troversy, and then in the course of
interviews had by a reporter with
boating men of several organiza
tions. It is very irregular to sub
ject a paper to attack for giving, as
matter of news, the sentiments of
persons not connected with it.
'Even worse than that is for tho Ad
vertiser to blame this paper for
taking one man as a guide in a dis
cussion, and then itself take another
man as its own supreme authority in
the case. Its article of Monday
bears internal evidence of inspira
tion by a gentleman who has had
more or less part in the doings
of the Association to which we
have taken exception. The editor
lends himself to an uncnlled-for
attack upon a gentleman of whom
he has no personal knowledge, with
out deigning to discuss that gentle
man's views upon matters in dispute
upon their merits. We have nothing
to withdraw respecting the acts done
in the name of the Association, as
we have as much confidence in our
own sources of information as any
that have been prescribed to us.
Some membeis of the Association,
we believe, have taken offense at our
criticisms, who are themselves un
aware of certain unworthy transac
tions purporting to have been author
ized by that organization. For
instance, members of the Honolulu
Club were approached with proposals
to organize a "dummy" crew to
row against the Iolani six-oared
crew, after the Myrtle and Kapiolani
Clubs had withdrawn from the Asso
ciation. This attempt to fool the pub
lic with a bogus race, in the leading
event of the regatta, surely could
not ha vo been part of the "affairs
of the Association . . conducted
squarely and above-board," as the
Advertiser boasts. Our contem
porary, in its misguided zeal, has
laid itself open to a charge of mis
representation. When it says a
certain delegate from tho Myrtle
Club to tho Association was in favor
of rowing for money, it commits the
offense that it vainly tries to bring
home to this paper. The gentleman
referred to, according to a statement
he has made to us, simply contended
that money prizes should not bo
absolutely forbidden, because cir
cumstances would probably arise
where it would be difficult to secure
races for trophies. Another con
tention of the same delegate, against
separate stake boats, has proved by
the events of the regatta to- have
been not so unreasonable as bad
been so hastily assumed by his
colleagues of less boating experience
in our channel. However, Mr.
Wnndenberg is doubtless able to
take care of himself, if he only
thinks worth while leplying to the
unseemly attack made upon him.
By request wo publish in this issue
the correspondence between the
United States Secretary of tho Treas
ury and Prof. Agassi?.,, containing
an offer to the latter nnd his declina
tion of the position of superintend
ent of the coast and geodetic survey.
Those who listened with pleasure to
the professor's lecture on coral reefs,
fn Honolulu last year, will be pleased
to notice the distinguished recogni
tion of his scientific standing by the

POST OFFIOE ACCOMMODATION.
Editor ButtETm: While the
Hon. S. G. Wilder was Minister of
the Interior, he had occasion to
notify the Postmaster General "that
the Postal Department of this King
dom was intended to accommodate
the people." I wonder, were he
now in office, what ho would say.
It is true the changes inndc in tho
Post Office in this city since then
have boon many, but arc the people
accommodated ns is their right 1
When complaint, long and loud,
was mado that the building put up
by Mr. W. R. Castle was detri
mental to the public, tho spaco being
requisite for Post Office accommo
dations, the owners were induced to
remove it, and then a window was
set apart for ladies, a stand was
made at the window, which was
used a few days and then pau.
Now one window suffices for the
sale of stamps, registry of letters,
general delivery of Portuguese and
other foreign letters, weighing and
stamping letters and papers, re
ceiving applications for postal or
ders, and paying the same, and all
general business, and why is this?
Ono side of the building is clear
the Watkiki side ; the Ewa side has
a window for newspapers to he
dropped in when it is open. One
window is used for the delivery of
native letters, and the wholo front
is taken up with private boxes for
which a certain sum per mouth is
charged. Could a light shed not
be built on the side of the Post
Office for tho accommodation of the
people, and one window be used for
ladies, one for the sale of stamps?
Could the native and Portuguese
delivery not be at the same window?
Could the "newspaper drop" not
be brought a little nearer town?
Could not news dealers be supplied
with stamps at a discount, which is
the rule elsewhere, as then they
could enable people who cannot pro
cure stamps at the Post Office, for
various reasons, to stamp their let
ters and mail them. Why should it
take from tvo to three days to
assort the mail, which it does, fre
quently? There are a number of
young, honest men who could be
hired, to assist in assorting tho
mails, and they would be benefited,
and the business of the office ex
pedited at a very small cost.
The benefits f)0 percent of the
people of these Islands derive from
being in the "Postal Union" arc
great, (?) particularly that with
Africa ! I, no doubt, will incur tho
displeasure of some, in the fore
going, but have I not stated facts?
And is the cause of complaint not
justifiable? And, last but not least,
will any change be made? I do
not think so. I shall probably re
cur to this again.
