' Gasoline, together with nil pro
ducts of petroleum, is liable 1o fre
iiucnt fluctuations in price, accord
ingly as olil deposits arc exhausted
or new ones discovered. Gas coal
is more likely to rise tlnin to fall in
price with the ever-increasing de
mands of the world for fuel. On
the other hand, electricity as an
illuminating agent is every day be
coming better understood and more
capable of being cheaply applied.
Hence, the dictate of ordinary pru
dence and foresight would seem to
Tjc that costly permanent additions
should not be made to this city's
lighting apparatus by any of the
methods now surely lapsing. The
experimentation with the electric
light now being bcdulously prosecuted
by enthusiastic specialists should be
awaited for a rcsonablc period.
Then, whenever results show elec
tricity to be available as our illumi
nating agent, prompt measures should
be taken to adopt it. An clement
that is not taken sulllciently into
account, in calculations for public
improvements, is the enhancement
of a city's good reputation abroad,
from being kept up to the highest
mark possible in modern conven
iences and institutions. This is seen
to be proved in the case of Hono
lulu, notwithstanding its obvious
backwardness in many impoitant
respects. Jn the generally kindly
notes of travellers on our tropical
city, its churches, halls, benevolent
institutions, telephones, cheap car
riages, inter-island steamship enter
prises, factories, and withal its cx-
. ccllcnt society and exhibitions of
culture, nre cited as evidences of a
highly creditable degree of civiliz
ation, while the defects of organiz-
"ationaud the missing public con
veniences arc palliated or entirely
', overlooked. Therefore, the nearer
' the city is kept to the van of modern
progress, the higher willjt stand in
the estimation of the world, and
while a good name is rathcrklo be
chosen than great riches by the in-
. dividual, for a city or a nation it is
si very effectual means of attracting
capital and wealth-producers. Elec
tricity adopted for lighting purposes
would probably electrify Honolulu
in more ways than one.
The Trades and Labor Congress of
New Zealand has put itself on record
against the system of plural voting
in vogue at elections in that colony.

A plea for olive culture is made
by a correspondent, who forgets
that the subject has been mentioned
in these columns. Mr. Lycan inten
ded to have the mountain sides of
his fruit farm at Kalihi planted in
olive trees, which was mentioned in
a description of his enterprise in this
paper. It would he a grand con
summation to have the dismal hues
of the mountain slopes overlooking
Honolulu superseded by a verdant
garment of olive foliage, the now
unproductive wastes becoming
iiclda of industry and sources of
. The judiciousness of n liberal ex
penditure, when pnrtlculnr work
must bo well done if Attempted at
all, is manifest in the result of hav
ing a Government veterinary surgeon
appointed and giving him power to
stamp out glanders. When the
Legislature granted the impropria
tion for this olflcinl about eighteen
months ago, that disease was making
fearful ravages among the equine
stock of the kingdom, Involving an
niiuuiil loss of many thousands of
dollars to plantation owners and
others, and threatening to beeomu a
universal plague all over the Islands.
Now, through the skilful and ener
getic action of Mr. Hrodie, the
veterinarian appointed under the
Act, and his coadjutors of the Hoard
of Inspectors for the Suppression of
Disease among Live Stock, the
malady has been effectually eradicated.
Knnon Hiuxtin: Assuming,
that the amiably disposed editor of
tlio Advertiser is correct, as to the
authorship of "Fluiikoyini" letter
in your issue of the loth inst., he
entirely misapprehends the target
of the remarks therein, and insists,
in this morning's issue, upon con
sidering them an insult to the King.
It. has been too much the practice
of the imported "lluukeys" who
surround the Royal presence, to
immediately jump behind His .Maj
esty's person for protection from
th( well-earned invective or ridi
cule of their critics. An intelligent
reader of the letter in question
needs no assurance that it was in
tended to apply, not to His Majesty,
but to the "royal" spaniels, who
insist upon a continuous indulgence
in the "royal" pastime of licking
His Majesty's "royal" boots to the
evident disgust of His Majesty, and
of those of his subjects, who despise
The editor's reference to my in
debtedness to royal favor for my
political qualifications in this King
dom is (piite uncalled-for, and the
implied charge of ingratitude for
that favor is entirely without foun
dation. As a matter of fact I
cherish, and have ever felt and ex
pressed a lively sense of gratitude
for the royal favor in rclcrence.
The editor is, upon this point (to
quote from his own pen), "as usual,
both ill-informed and rude.
A more serious charge, which
calls for denial, is that 1 made over
tures to the Government party for
"recognition, or a place on the
Government ticket," prior to the
late election. This is absolutely
false. Further, I did not, during
the year preceding the election, dis
cuss politics with any person in the
Governmental confidence, with the
supposed exception, that during
January last, and months after I
had taken the field in Waimea, Mr.
Kaulukou came to my ollicc, and
inquired whether I was in the field
as an opponent of the King? To
this I replied, "ISo! I am person
ally most favorably disposed toward
the King, but am entirely independ
ent in politics. If elected, I shall
oppose the bad, and support the
good measures, pf whatever minis
try may be in power." Such are
still my sentiments.
Another revelation contained in
the Advertiser article is, that the
"cost of defeat," in my case, has
been reduced by the return to the
dealers, of "four cases of opposition
gin." If it be the intention to
thereby charge me with having fur
nished liquor to the electors of 'Wai
mea during the campaign, then the
editor lias been again, "as usual,
ill-informed" in the premises, and I
distinctly deny the charge.

Ewtou Ih'i.i.rnx: Among the
many industries advocated by you
for trial on these islands, I do not
remember to have seen olive culture,
lias the olive ever been tried here?
1 do not sec why it should not thrive
and produce abundantly in Hawaiian
soil and climate. Indeed, consider
ing that its native home is in lati
tudes near our own, with similar
soil, I afn of opinion the olive would
do extremely well in this country.
With regard to the profitableness
of olive raising in countries adapted
to its requirements there is no ques
tion. The trees live to a great age,
and require but little care and little
moisture. The process of gathering
tho berries and expressing the oil is
easy and comparatively inexpensive.
The oil is in steady demand, and
varies but lUtle in price. How
greatly it would add to the beauty
a,td wealth of Honolulu to have the
now bare mountain (ides facing the
city covered with nourishing olive
