soweth bountifully shall also reap
bountifully." Collections and pledges

church, amounting to about $1,000.

THE "CRITIC" OF THE PRESS.
It is understood by all respectablo
journalists, as well as by ladies and
gentlemen generally, that amateurs
who give entertainments for benevo
lent purposes are entitled to cour
teous consideration at the hands of
the press. It is a matter of regret
that this simple rule of journalistic
propriety was not observed by the
Daily 1'ress in its attempt to des
cribe tho performance given at
Music Hall on Saturday evening
last, especially as the wholo affair
was absolutely and on its own merits
so thoroughly good as to afford no
excu'so for adverse criticism. Tho
article in question was not only
unfriendly in spirit and discourteous
in tone, but was incorrect and mis
leading in its statement of facts.
To say, for instance, that the entire
third act was only rendered beurable
by the interest awakened by two of
tho churacers, i3 as great a viola-
;j"T" T rawwnronpp
tion of truth a it is of good man
ners. It is not at all strange that a
paper which so greatly admiied the
Farini Opera troupe should fail to
appreciate the merits of such a, per
formance as that given on Saturday
evening. It is suggested that tho
talent required to chronicle runaways
and dog lights may bo entirely inad
equate to deal intelligently with
such subjects as music mid tho
What a Doctor Says Tin: Street
C't.lIANIMI 1I0X0I.XH.IJ N()T SO
Very Dirty Louai. Government
nit: Prime Essential.
Our reporter was "wending his
way," if an original phrase is allow
able, up Merchant street tho other
day, bound for the Government
building, to sec that the public ser
vants were all attending to their
duties. Musing, as he wended,
upon tho hard lot that thus com
pelled an alien to look after national
affairs, n buggy bore down upon
him, the occupant of which, by
reining up his spirited steed upon
meeting him, showed that a con
ference upon affairs of state was
The news-scooper thought ho was
going to get a sawbonc item on the
quiet, at once cheating the etiquette
of the faculty and getting ahead of
contemporaries. But the event was
otherwise. The disciple of Escu
lapius spoko in this wise:
"The Bulletin had an editorial
on health matters yesterday, and
there arc some things I would like
to say to you upon the subject, but
have not time to write them for pub
lication. You refer to a contract for
cleaning tho streets. Who is tho
contractor and what docs he engage
Being informed upon these points,
so far as the reporter's knowledge
went, the doctor proceeded, continu
ing to be the interviewer rather than
the interviewed :
"How long is this arrangement
going to last will it be permanent
or continue only till after tho elec
tions?" As the President of the Board of
Health had neglected to inform the
Bulletin upon this point, the re
porter sadly admitted that tho conun
drum was too hard for him.
"Does the contractor have the use
of prison labor?"
"Apparently not. It seems there
is a scarcity of mechanics in town at
present, and the prisoners can be
more advantageously employed in
painting and other work for private
Continuing, tho doctor said: "I
do not think it wisdom to cut away
the grass on the streets and side
walks, as j'ou say the contract de
mands. The grass is more a benefit
than an injury, provided it is not
allowed to grow long enough to be
an obstruction. Its roots bind the
fine, powdery soil that prevails here,
thus preventing its being washed
"This contract scheme appears to
be a very superficial one for the
cleansing of the city. A great deal
has been said about the filthiness of
Honolulu, but I do not regard it as
so very filthy, after all. If the
closely-Built parts were set down in
New York, San Francisco or Boston,
they would soon bo pestilential in a
high degree. But here the air is so
pure, the land and sea breezes are
so constant, that the natural results
of overcrowding and disregard of
cleanliness are very much neutra
lized. "However, it is in those districts
mainly comprised in Chinatown
that sanitation is demanded. No
mere scraping of the streets will
meet the requirements of tho case
there. We want legislation thnt
will positively prevent overcrowding
of buildings or of their occupants.
That and other necessary legislation
could be obtained, I believe, if all
tho more intelligent portion of tho
residents would only work together
for tho common good.
"As matters now stand, there is
no mode of common action avail
able to tho members of tho commu
nity, except the privilege of discus
sing public questions in the press.
The pcoplo never como together to
consult upon local affairs, as they
do under the municipal systems of
the United States and other coun
tries. Honolulu needs something
like what Ireland is now demand
ing, and is fairly entitled to local
self-government. Wherever the
people have tho responsibility for
their local concerns upon them
selves, with frco outlets for tho ex
pression of opinion, there tho danger
of disturbance or revolution is re
duced to the minimum. Tho old
'town meeting' of New England is
really a grand institution, and its
adoption in some form of local self
government by Honolulu would pro
bably be a great forward move.
"Sonic people talk as if muni
cipal government hero would bo too
expensive a luxury. Thero is no
reason why it should be so, at least
in proportion to the advantages
likely to bo derived. If tho machino
was run by expensive people for
thero aro too many hero whose ideas
and habits aro entirely too extra
vagant that evil might uccruc from
llio change. But thcio is enough
common-senso in the community, I
hope, to obviate such a contingency.
Let the measure, If obtained, be
worked cautiously at the start, be
