THE ADVERTISER SQUEALS
Is'o better evidence could be de
sired thnt the article in this paper,
on Friday last, under the heading
"Mail Accommodation" was timely
and to the purpose, than was
afforded yesterday by the Adver
tiser's tirade of abuse of some
imaginary foes termed "the ene
mies" of the Oceanic Steamship
Company. "Who these enemies arc,
wo arc tillable to discover. "Wo are
aware, however, that in so far as at
least some of the stockholders in
that company are concerned, they
have had to submit to the inevitable
in their business relations with cer
tain shippers of suimr from this
poit. Where they assumed to dic
tate terms they were met with
vigorous and effective competition.
Business men consulted their own
interests ; and it cannot be denied
that they displayed an unprece
dented degree of boldness when they
presumed to act for themselves.
Competition, however repulsive to
the Advertiser people, is neverthe
less a recognized principle in com-mc-rcc,
with which even so great,
disinterested and paternal a friend
of the Hawaiian Kingdom as the
Oceanic Steamship Company has un
fortunately come into collision. Not
withstanding the beneficent manner
in which the Oceanic Steamship
Company has conducted its busi
ness, solely for the aggrandizement
of the planters and people of this
Kingdom, as the Advertiser all but
swears it has been doing, there has
been a universal expression of dis
satisfaction at the mail arrange
ments of the past four months.
An act was passed by the Legisla
ture of 1881, granting "a subsidy
of $1,500 for each round trip, to the
Oceanic Steamship Company, for
carrying the mails between the ports
of Honolulu and San Francisco re
spectively, said mail bervicc to be
In-monthly." The second section
of that act provided that "the said
mail shall be carried on first-class
steam vessels;" and the fact
of this subsidy standing on the
statute book very properly caused
the public to look to that company
for the required accommodation.
And when the Ihii.i.rriN asserted
that it matters little to the public
who'own the steamers, provided the
service is performed satisfactorily,
it excited the wrath of the Adver
tiser by pretending to speak for the
public, without extolling the virtues
of the Oceanic Steamship Company.
To read some of the Advertiser's
editorials without knowing better,
one would supposo that the inhabit
ants of these Islands owed their sub
sistence to the paternal supervision
- of the Oceanic Steamship Company,
it is really amusing to note in our
contemporary's second leader, yes
terday, how suddenly the "ocean
tramps," of a few weeks ago, now
that they have become the property
of the Oceanic Steamship Company,
are, with some internal repairs, to
become "fast ships, classed A 1."
A few weeks ago, the Zealandia and
Australia were among tho played
out old hulks of tho Advertiser's
shipping list; henceforth wc shall
liear of them as two of the finest
and jloetest stenniships afloat. It
makes a great difference to our con
temporary who owns tho steamers.
Tho assertion that tho Humxtin
"crowed loudly over what ap
peared to be the proximate with
drawal of the Oceanic Company's
steamers" is easily disposed of. To
"""pronounce the statement a lie would
be correct Anglo-Saxon, but as it
might be a little rough, we shall put
it in more classic phrase by re
marking, tliat it is ono of those con
stitutional defects in our contempo
rary's character for veracity with
which the public arc already quite
familiar. The Di'Mxtin never
"crowed over tho proximate with
drawal of the said steamers" inas
much as wc never thought of their
withdrawal; and if wo had, ve
should have pronounced it in the
interest of the public, a most un
fortunate occurrence, unless some
otlicr company had been ready to
step in at once and fill tho gap with
equally cfllcient and excellent ac
commodation. "While wc arc always
prepared to vindicate whatever ex
pressions of opinion wc may sec fit
to offer in the face of tho Adver
tiser's bluster, we unhesitatingly as
sert our sincere satisfaction at the
prospect held out by the Oceanic
Steamship Company of a return to
the regular bi-monthly service of
last year. The company's enter
prise is deserving of commendation,
and wc trust their terms anil ar
rangements may bo such as to com
mand the confidence of travellers
and business men. With these
reasonable provisos, the Bui.i.irrix
heartily wishes the Oceanic Steam
ship Company bon voyage to every
trip of their fine steamships.
The Gazette again repeats an oft
repeated falsehood, a falsehood that
has been uttered on the streets of
Honolulu and printed in the news
papers times innumerable; and,
although an unqualified falsehood,
nine-tenths of the people, including
the writers for the Gazette, believe
it to be truth. Nevertheless, it is
a falsehood that Moreno "came to
these islands a needy adventurer."
An " adventurer," he was: but
"needy," ho was not. Mr. Moreno
brought money with him to this
country, paid his expenses here
eijiht or ten months, and left with
an unexpended balance of the ori
A BAD CUSTOM.
A custom has long existed in this
country which deserves rebuke. Wc
refer to the practice of allowing
rebates, which do not appear on the
vouchers, on purchases for the gov
ernment, for the purpose of reward
ing the bestowcrs of patronage. If
wc arc correctly informed, this cus
tom is in pretty general practice
here, and those who benefit by its
operation arc in the habit of regard
ing it as a perfectly ligitimate and
proper thing. But men of honor
and integrity, with whom moral
right takes precedence of legal
enactment, and with whom undefined
justice is the principle of thought
and action, and the standard by
which they measure their intercourse
with circumstances, regard such a
custom as decidedly wrong and dis
honest. Whenever discounts are
made, the public treasury should
reap the benefit, and not the em
ployees of the State, who are gene
rally well paid for their services.
The olllcial who pockets a rebate, as
his own perquisite, commits a mis
demeanor that should disqualify him
HOPE FOR THE LEPER.
KaKAAKO IJltANGH IIOSI'ITAL,
March 19, 188C.
Eihtoii lSui.i.ivriN: As there is
considerable talk in Honolulu, as
regards the employment by His Ex
cellency Mr. Gibson, and of the
ability of Dr. Goto to cure leprosy,
I will inform you of what has come
under my own observation, facts
that any person can ascertain by a
Dr. Goto lias hail charge of sonic
ten or twelve lepers since about
November last, anil in the last day
or two has hail a number more con
signed to his care.
The first ones I believe were about
as bad cases as there were in the
yard. Ono of these was a white
man who was very bad, and tells
me he was unable to ride in a car
riage without great misery, anil was
scarcely able to get around with a
cane. At the present timo ho trots
around without a cane, and tells mo
that ho is entirely free of pain and
that tho numbness of his limbs lias
almost gone, and in appearauco 1
can say he is greatly altered for tho
Another white man who was a
very bail case, has been on Molokai
anil in this place together bomo
seven or eight years, lias been but a
very short time, I think only about
two weeks, under the caro of the
doctor, and anyone- who had seen
Jiini before, and were to see him
now, could not )mt notice tho great
improvement in his appearance, and
iio says ho is better than ho has
been for a long time.
I have watched with great interest,
as I am myself interested, nnd I can
see decided improvement in a num
ber of the natives and llicy say they
feel a great deal belter. I say I
can sec n very great improvement in
their appearance, tho other natives
sec it and arc all anxious to be
placed under the doctor's care.
I think these natives would have
been better still, if they paid strict
attention to the doctor's orders, but
they do not.
As for myself I have not been
under his care. I have been doc
tored to my heart's content and
have been told it was no use ; mine
is the nervous disease. Now 1 seu
the improvement Hint has been made
upon the doctor's patients, I think
there is a chance for me, and at my
request Mr. Gibson lias placed ino
under his care.
If Dr.. Goto succeeds in only bet
tering the condition of those under
his care it is n blessing, and if he
succeeds in curing some it will be a
still greater blessing.
I sincerely hope that he may be
upheld by public opinion and a fair
and impartial trial given him, and
no obstacles allowed to be thrown in
bis way, until he has had a fair op
portunity to show exactly what be
can do, and if he succeeds may God
bless those avIio were the means of
bringing him here.

also says in an article on "Saccha

at present more privileges than any
other class of importers, yet they
arc not satisfied. They claim it an
act of injustice on the part of the
government to have wcightablc mer

the bonded warehouse; that while
the merchandise is warehoused the
evaporation is enormous and there
fore when the goods are withdrawn
tho loss is great and falls upon them
as a inatler of course. They want
their goods weighed when taken out
for consumption, and no duty as
