The work is going on. That is
certain. A gang of men armed with
hoes, rakes and shovels, is distri
buted along the principal thorough
fares scraping up the nccuimnttla
tions of muck, dust, debris and
manure which have given so much
offence to the lesthetically disposed
portion of the inhabitants. The
work has bow been in progress for
several days. Some of the streets
nre allowing a greatly improved ap
pearance. There is no mistaking
that fact. The plan of operations
nevertheless is one that it may not
be judicious to mention. Bnt as it
is evidently original, and one which
Mr. Kaiaikawaha, the contractor,
may be disposed to claim special
credit for, it ought to be fully des
cribed. It is only necessary to be
widely known to secure for the new
ollicial a share of the fume that falls
to the lot of the ingenious and enter
prising, the world over. In case
the plan should be adopted by other
cities, the honor of Hawaii requires
that il, should at once be announced
and designated emphatically the
Honolulu method of cleaning streets.
This being done, it will not be in
the power of any smart Yankee
civic official to introduce the scheme
and appropriate the honors of in
A considerable amount of abuse
has been heaped upon the heads of
the conservators of our civic rights
and comforts during the past three
months for the dirty condition of the
streets. Whether this had anything
to do with the operations recently
commenced is no part of our busi
ness to determine. But there does
seem to he a sort of sarcastic humor
about the processes now going on.
They have gone to work to clean tho
streets certainly. And the grumblers
arc grumbling with bated breath,
although they cannot but have some
rather disagreeable notions that Mr.
Kaiaikawaha has thrown them out
of the frying pan into the (ire.
Those who howled at the powers
that bu for the unsightly and (insalu
brious dirtiness under their feet are
now beinti choked with immeasur
able quantities of the same stuff
going down their throats, in
at their doors and windows, and
pdemonstrating to them in the most
nalpabin manner that the streets are
being cleaned, for was not that just
what they wanted? Whether the
method adopted is a sort of sarcastic
way of doing what the public have
long enough been' waiting for, or an
' accidental peculiarity some people
have of performing the plainest
services in the worst manner possi
ble, or-both, is not of much conse
quence to determine. If it is a joke)
1 it certainly is a rather dirty one.
And those dibaffeeted people who
would not let the authorities alone,
"at all at all," have, unquestion
ably, had their mouths closed as
they went about the streets during
tho past week, and, according to
present indications, aro likely to
Of course it
would be audacious to suggest,
this connection, that possibly the
street cleaning operations may go
on until after the elections.
The foregoing remarks may be
considered impertinent, and not
consistent with the dignity of pub
lic journalism in the treatment of a
matter of public interest ; but any
person who will take a walk or a
drive along the line of thu street
cleaning operations cannot fail to be
impressed with tho ridiculous man
ner in which the contract is being
carried out. The dirt of the streets
is scraped up into small hillocks,
from six to eight feet apart. It is
then left to dry, a process that only
requires a few hours in tho tropical
snn. The drying process, however,
is allowed to go on from day to
day. and the dust, muck, manure
and debris become thoroughly pul
verized. The trade winds come
tearing down the valley or in from
the ocean, and a large portion of
every hillock of pulverized dirt is
taken up in shovelfuls, carried
through thu air and hurled pell-mell
into the faces of all meddlesome
citizens who never would be satisfied
while the dirt was left undisturbed
under their feet. On those streets
along which the scraping up business
has been prosecuted during the past
week, the Hying dirt has been abso
lutely terrible. It seems, too, to be
impossible to get to windward of the
dirt-laden breezes, for the hillocks
have been so ingeniously placed
that from whatever art the wind
blows, there is no avoiding the in
lliction. Not only is the air charged
with the pulverized accummulations
of the streets, but the hillocks of
dirt are, many of them, re-spread
by the gales over the places whence
they came, to be scraped up again
in more disintegrated condition, only
to be the more easily whirled about
by the breezes of a subsequent day.
After the hillocks have lain long
enough, to bu effective for the pur
poses above specified, a cart comes
along and takes what is left of them
away. And this is cleaning the
streets in Honolulu. If the plan is
not unique in its originality, it is
surely unique in its ingenuity, that
is, if it has been adopted with a
view to punishing the citizens for
We have only a single suggestion
to make, and perhaps, the contrac
ting party, Mr. Kaiaikwaha, may be
discreet enough to adopt it. Its
plain practicability may, however,
be fatal to its adoption. But wa
shall hope for the best, and- will
demand no fees for the advice. It
is, Do not scrape tip dirt any
faster than it can be carted away,
and cart it away as fast as it can be
and doubtless hastened her death.
But she was ripe for eternity and
'she was not, for God took her.'
On the anniversary of her 80th
birthday a deputation of young men
from tho boarding school called to
congratulate her on behalf of the
whole school, and her messages to
thu school as well as her conversa
tion with tho young men will long
bo remembered as the parting words
of one whose relation to the school
was indeed that of mother.
Tho funeral services were held at
the Ilaili Church, at which a large
audience was present. The pall
bearers were all graduates of the
school (one of whom is the only
surviving member of the first class,
the class of 18J1C), whose tender
regard for the deceased was like
that of bereaved sons. Remarks
were made by the Rev. 11. 1 Baker,
and the Rev. W. B. Olcson, those
of the latter being interpreted by
lion. D. II. Hitchcock. The. scrip
tures were read and prayer offered
by the Rev. J. Kalana, the pastor
of the native church, who is also a
graduate of the school. The united
choirs of the native and foreign
churches sang "Jesus, Lover of my
Soul," and "Asleep in Jesus," and
the boarding school boys sang in
softest strains a hymn that had been
composed by Hon. J. K. Nawahi on
the occasion of Father Lyman's
funeral, a little over a year ago.
"When Jesus comes," a special
favorite of Mother Lyman's, was
sung over her grave.
Thus has passed to her reward
one whose life had been serene and
joyful in the service of the Master,
ilow much richer the world is for
such saintly lives and such con
stancy of faith in the Saviour.

THE LATE MRS. S. J. LYMAN,
llilo has acnin been called to
mourn the loss of another of the
early missionaries whose numbers
have been so depleted in recent
years. Mrs. Sarah Joiner Lyman,
wife of the Rev. David Belden
Lyman, died at llilo, Dec. 7, 1885.
She had been in feeble health for
some time, but the day before her
death had attended service at the
Ilaili Church, on which occasion the
text of the sermon was Phil. 1 :20.
"According to my earnest expecta
tion and my hope that hi nothing I
shall be ashamed, but that with all
boldness, as always, so now also
Christ shall be magnified in my
body, whether it be by life or by
death." On both occasions the
aged Mrs. Hitchcock, who was a
member of the same missionary re
inforcement, and who is now resid
ing at llilo, sat next to Mrs. Lyman.
It was a very touching and beauti
ful sight to see these venerable
mothers seated side by side among
the people for whom they had
labored so lovingly. Mrs. Lyman
was considerably wearied Sunday
f rom the clfort to attend church, and
complained of being cold in the
evening. Hut her hon, Hon. F. S.
Lyman, who bpent the evening with
her in company with others, observed
that sliu was unusually bright and
talkative. Shu said to a little irrand-
daughter, "Now, you must wrap up
warm before you go home, because
it is cold." That night she retired
as usual and sweetly fell asleep in
Jesus. In the morning when her
room was entered bhe was lying
peacefully in that last slumber
which lias no awakening this side
eternity. There was no trace of
suffering or pain. The angel of
death had called the dear mother
home to her eternal rest. Recent
tidings of tho death of a very pro
mising grandson had made her
heavy-hearted for her nfllictcil son
