THIS EVEHItlC'S DOItlCS.
Yoscuiilc Skating Rink 7.
Harmony Lodge, I.O.O.F., 7:30.
When Burns penned the sentiment
that it would be of great advantage
to us " Wad sonic power the giflie
trie lib. To sec oursels as ithers see
us," the Hawaiian Islandb were
little known, and the city of 'Hono
lulu had not i cached the protoplasm
stage of development. Tlie poet
may therefore be excused for doing
the Honolulu ofthe latter part of the
19th century a manifest injustice;"
for it would he almost a national
calamity if we should be subjected to
the necessity of seeing ourselves as
others arc disposed to sec us. As
seen from abroad, wc arc an isolated
set, exiled fiom civilization aud
atllicted with unbearable ennui. That
wc have paved streets aud a froad
supei visor is noted with amazement
by touribts who land on'our shores.
The astonishment almost invariably
experienced by visitors during their
first days in Honolulu is proof posi
tive that this Kingdom, even in the
great centers of population abroad,
is an unknown country. Persons
have landed on these shores with the
notion that the native clement in so
ciety is a nonentity, and are sur
prised to find the ancient Hawaiian
"clothed and in his right mind"
liko his white neighbor. Nor are
these absurd opinions confined to
the unread and ignorant b' any
means. The readers of the Augustus
Sala letters could see cropping out
all through that brilliant author's
writing the idea that the evidences
of advanced society he met hero
were almost startling in their novelty
to him. If to the half-frozen deni
zens of two-thirds of the North
American continent in this month of
November wc could convey any
adequate idea of the supremely salu
brious climate of Hawaii, and con
nected therewith the fact that the
best society of Hoston, New York or
Montreal has its counterpart in Ho
nolulu, aud that the institutions of
benevolence and moral enterprise
for which more pretentious cities
are famed, arc in full blast in our
midst; it would come before them
like a new revelation. Aloral ex
hortations in Sunday schools in
America arc very commonly spiced
with the ominous warning that some
wicked boys perforin feats of in
iquity that would bo " bad
enough for Sandwich Islanders."
They forget, or rather never knew,
that the crowning vices of the Ha
wniians, as a race, arc those intro
duced from the headquarters of
civilization. As regards the native
population, double mission work has
been very effectively performed.
They have been Christianized to a
largo extent, and, at the same time,
too many of them have been, if not
demoralized, shunted off on to new
' tracks on the road to ruin. While
nil the ways, both bad and good, of
civilization lmvc been fully rooted in
(Hawaiian soil, there need be no
doubt in the minds of foreign
tourists on pleasure bent or invalids
in search of a salubrious winter cli
mate, that in tho latitude of
Honolulu they will find air, society
, and institutions adapted to thoir
several tastes and necessities. Until
these facts are, thoroughly ventilated
abroad, justice demands that tho
' gift of seeing ourselves as others
see us Ije transferred to oilier people
in such a way as that they mny wish
to inform themselves of our claims
to be properly known and under
btood. TRAFFIC IN CHINESE CERTIFICATES.
Anent the puzzling question of
Chinese immigration, which j8 oonv
ing up ns likely to becomo a national
one in America ns well ns in Hawaii,
tho following, which wc find in the
Sacramento Union, will show that
1 ' for ways that aro dark and tricks
that are vain, the heathen Chinco"
and his confederates aro not to be
beaten there any more than hero:
Judge Hoffman, of tho United
States District Court at San Fran
cisco, has literally taken the bull by
the horns in his remnrkablo charge
to the Grand Jury. He flatly tells
that body that there is an open
tralllc in Chinese return certificates,
nnd that he, the Judge, knows it to
be so ; that he has proof of tho fact
that red certificates have been ped
dled about in open market in China
town. Ho then proceeds to direct
the jury where to search for evi
dence, and makes their duly so
plain that they cannot avoid it, how
ever much inclined. He tells them,
also, that these return permits arc
sold in Hongkong, and in addition,
that original permits to enter this
country arc matters of merchandise
in China. It is in the power of the
jury, on this charge, to make such
a report as will bring the whole
subject directly within the range of
diplomatic attention. In that case,
it is to be hoped that this Govern
ment will demand such an account
ing as China will not dare to refuse.
The Sacramento Union furnishes
the following item, showing the
enormous crops grown in the United
States, particularly that of Indian
Corn is King, undoubtedly, if the
value of the entire crop produce'd of
cotton, wheat and corn be reckoned.
Several times the yield has ex
ceeded 1,500,000,000, and now it is
expected to reach 2,000,000,000
bushels, and even if only 20 cents
per bushel should be realized by
the producer, less than corn is sup
posed to be ordinarily worth for
feeding to cattle and hogs, such a
crop would be worth $400,000,000.
When tho country lias produced
over 0,000,000 bales of cotton thus
far, it has not been worth to the
producer $50 per bale; and when
it has produced over 400,000,000
bushels of wheat, as the Western
farmers well know, the. average
price to the producer has not ex
ceeded 75 cents per bushel. Last
year, with unusually large crops,
the Bureau estimate of the value to
producers was about $255,000,000
for cotton, $330,000,000 for wheat
and SG 10,000,000 for corn. The
estimates of the Bureau may per
haps be rather higher than the
actual return to the producers, but
they, nevertheless, illustrate with
sufilcient accurncj' the relative im
portance of these great crops.
PROHIBITION AGAIN REASONED.
BT D. M. CKOWXEY.
Editor Bulletin: Having been
absent from Honolulu for nearly a
month, I am pleased to find "Nota
lienc's" silence accounted for by
his ahsence also, and as our pre
vious tilting was only a preliminaiy
skirmish, in which the real question
of Prohibition was untouched, I am
rejoiced to learn that his "soul's in
arms and cacer for the fray." In
consenting to draw a lance with
"Nota Bene," I confess to having
but one purpose; to arrive at the
truth. I am not interested pecu
niarily pro. or con. in the liquor
business, and as I detest sophistry
on tins question in which there
appears to me vast issues involved,
it is pleasing to read "Nota Bono's"
assurance that his sole purpose in
the discussion is to steer his fellow
man "into the path of truth and
correct understanding." I trust,
therefore, that we are mutually open
to conviction by the force of honest
argument, and if I can find that my
defection from the "ruddy bumper,"
which happened sixteen years ago,
was an error of judgment that the
philosophic reasoning of "Nota
Bene" might have spared me, may
hap it is not even now too late to
mend by returning to the path and
practice dictated by a "correct un
derstanding." I regret to have to
commence by directing "Nota
Bone's" attention to a sentence in
my last letter in which he has labored
to place mo in a most ludicrous
light. My words had reference to a
scries of crimes quoted by Mr. II. S.
Townsend in a letter to the Bux
letik, and to which "Nota Bene"
denatured, and wroto to tho effect
that it was one-sided to quote crimes
of persons in drink, and not to give
those of persons in their "cool sober
senses." My words were that " 'Nota
Bene would find it hard to give a
list of such crimes as Mr. Townsend
quoted, committed by men in their
cool sober senses." This is very
different from "Nota lJene's" inter
pretation that "D. M. C. thinks it a
pity that I did not give a long list of
crimes committed by persons who
were sober," Tho gist of tho matter
lay in tho nature of the crimes. To
contend that many of the crimes
enumeintcd by "Nota Bene" could
be executed by an intoxicated per
son, would be manifestly absurd,
but I do contend, that drink is a
contributnry cause to nino-tenths of
tho cool-headed crimes mentioned.
If wo want to know how far drink is
responsible for crime, wo have it
from tho mouths of tho judges them
selves. The lowest estimnto I know
of, is that given by Justice Kay of
tho English Queen's Bench, who
snys, "1 know by my experience
that CO percent of the crime of thi3
kingdom springs from this cause.
Nota Bene" uses strong language
in the following:
"In D. M. C.'s communication ho
shows the true metal of all Prohibi
tionists, when he endeavors to shield
and defend the unprincipled conduct
of their standard bearer St. John.
Of course ho had not read in his
one-sided papeis, of the rascality of
their leader, and unless it were
therein printed it must in his opinion
oe untrue, ami a paper printing any
thing derogatory to the hypocritical
character of their beloved chief
must of a necessity lie an insignifi
cant and totally unreliable villifier."
I am a reader of newspapers, and
I have not seen in my wide scarcli
any mention of "unprincipled con
duct"' of Gov. St. John. "Nota
Bene," by nil lilies of fair dealing,
is open to censure for repeating this
innuendo after challenge and with
out proof, in reference to his source
of information. A part of the "true
metal" of Prohibitionists is not to
have a very high opinion' of the
man's mission who walks into print
masked and cloaked in a 710m da
plume to stab absent men's char
acters. Gov. bt. John is by all
accounts a tough man to challenge
face to face.
As to the references made again
to the Cinncinnati Commercial Ga
zette and Harper's, I thought I had
disposed of them before. The
former is owned, and exiits for tho
benefit of the "Liquor Dealers'
Union" of Ohio. It professed to
be Republican, but its love of bar
room phraseology as the sample
previously quoted by "Nota Bene"
will show renders it unfit for any
but its special patrons. Is it on this
score that "Nota Bene" extols it?
The Christian Statesman and the
Union Signal exist by their mer
its. As to Harper's Weekly I am
perhaps an older magazine reader
than "Nota Bene," and can remem
ber Harper 25 years ago' when it
wasted the small influence it had in
vilifying Abraham Lincoln and try
ing vainly to hamper his adminis
tration. Politically, Hurper's never
had the influence of a New York
third-rate daily. Governor Iloadly
is evidently a great authority lwjth
"Nota Bene," who artfully conceals
the source from whence the great
Iloadly draws the inspiration which
gives him the correct understand
ing of the liquor business in Ohio.
Will "Nota Bene" deny that his
Prophet Iloadly is attorney to the
Liquor Dealers' Union? What a
mighty force there must then be in
that word "We" in Iloadly's speech,
"We are opposed to sumpturcy
legislation, and in favor of licensing
the traffic in intoxicating liquor."
He might have added r "We, Us &
Co., the attorney, and the 15,000
liquor dealers of Ohio will fight this
out for all the dollars and cents
there is hanging to it. I know that I
can bid a long farewell to all my
greatness as governor, that in Octo
ber next a prohibitionist will be
governor. I know I cannot say
'We' on behalf of the people, as
320, 1G7 votes were in favor of a
prohibition amendment to the State
constitution in 1883, against 98,050
for license, but my grip upon tho
15,000 men who are banded together
by the strong ties of avarice and
self-defense is, what I want for
what there is in it."
"Nota Bene" is curious to know
what that party of Kansas editors
were doing out so far west as
Oregon. I cannot pretend to fully
answer the question. A friend lent
me a copy of the Weekly Orcgoni
an about March last, in which
about 50 Kansas editors nailed the
lie about the prohibitory law being
a failure in Kansas. It may be as
suggested, that they temporarily
migrated to inhale the ajr of free
dom on the Sound, but apparently
they had a mission, for Oregon has
caught the prohibition infection;
her legislature having adopted a
bill submitting constitutional pro
hibition to the people.

CHICKEN STEALING OR " FOWL PLAY."
Ewtoii Bulletin: This morn
ing's issuo of the P. C. A. suggests
n patrol of police for Kapalama and
Makiki districts, and if that is not
done the correspondent suggests
buckshot, etc. Being one of the
unfortunates who live out of police
protection (although tho Marshal
lives out that way) 1 humbly beg to
differ from ye correspondent of the
'. C. A., or at least suggest in ad
dition that on a certain morning to be
hereafter set, tho town police be
tween the hours of 4. nnd 0 a. m.
btop and overhaul all Chinnnien or
Portuguese who may bo bringing
poultry into town to sell to the
icceivers on Meek, Maunaken and
Hotel streets, and have all said
poultry taken to Police Station yard,
taking the names of the nominal
owners, then in that morning's issue
of thoiJ. V, A. and D.H.Prm no-
tlfy all persons who havo beon rob.
bud of poultry up to (hat time, to
call round and idcnlifyt if they can,
the said poultry to bo kept in cus
tody till 2 p. m. Even if none were
identified it would have a good moral
effect. Then again the people who
ecll poultiy should bo interviewed
and asked where they got their silp-i
plies, etc., and if they can bo caught
buying stolen poultry, give them
twice as much punishment as tho
original thief. The man who n few
days back testified he gave only $C
for 20 fowls, must havo known they
were stolen. There is hardly n'liousc
or premises out on tho plains that
has not been robbed once or twice,
and the thief must have some means
to silence the cries of poultry to get
away so nicely. As to shooting, first
catch your hare and then not one
percent of those who say they would
shoot, would do so. Mr. John Leal
deserves the thanks of the whole
community for what he did last
week in hunting down that China
man. If others would do likewise,
we might put a stop to so much
chicken stealing, for all this talk of
the police doing this or that is bosh
we can't have a policeman at every
house. But they might be instructed
what to do, and their superiors sec
that they do it, not only on fowl
stealing, but on ovcr-diiving express
horses, overloading drays, cruelty
to horses, etc. I hope you will ex
cuse my taking up so much 'space,
but poihaps these suggestions may
lead to something, or some other
person may improve on them.
