WEDNESDAY, MAKCJ11 21, 188G.
The Advertiser of this morning
'having gracefully "tumbled to the
racket," the vexed question of
steamship mail accommodation may
be considered settled for the present.
To all persons having occasion to
correspond with the cold world lying
scattered around this paradise of
the l'acillc, it will be a matter of
gratification that they can figure on
the day and hour when they arc to
bear from their correspondents and
vice versa. The felicity of existence
on theso Islands will, from the 1st
of April next, be complete, that is
provided there is nothing more to be
desired. And whatever there is
wanted further, if attainable at all,
can be had as all public improve
ments and conveniences are, by agi
tation and enterprising action. The
climate of Hawaii is said to be
enervating, and calculated to pro
duce listlcssncss, an opinion that is
probably not fur from the truth.
Hut tho climate is not so depressing
as to suppress the ever restless for
eign clement, and prevent the volun
tary or involuntary exiles of America
and Europe from striving after a
participation in the progressive en
terprises of more advanced coun
tries. And it is a considerable
clement of dissatisfaction to the
people referred to that their position
js one of isolation, a position very
irksome to persons accustomed in
former years to the rush and roar
and whirl of life in communities
alive with railroads, telegraphs and
other anti-Sybaritic elements. And,
moreover, to read references to these
Islands in foreign papers, conveying
the idea that this little Kingdom is a
far away region, dissociated from
the world, and rising in solitude
from the waves of the l'acillc Ocean,
is damaging to that self-respect
which is an essential clement of
good conduct. Heading of America,
Africa, Europe, Asia and Australasia
knit together by electric currents,
and knowing that we arc out in the
sun, suggests the plaintive refrain,
"Nobody coming to marry mc, no
body coming to woo." Under these
circumstances, the news of negotia
tions having been opened between
the Colonies and the continent of
America for lines of telegraph from
America to China and the Colonies,
touching at Honolulu, is one of the
most interesting items of intelligence
that our late foreign mails have con
veyed to us. The development of
this scheme should be closely watched
and strenuously aided by the govern
ment, as well as by every business
and social interest in the Kingdom.
Telegraphic connection with the
world is what will bring these Ha
waiian Islands into the rank and file
of nations, instead of their being,
as hitherto, sort of law recruits of
the supernumerary corps. The tele
graph will secure for Honolulu, to
the fullest degree what it is now but
partially, the position of one of tho
great maritime centers of the world.
Honolulu and the Hawaiian Islands
will become as familiar to newspaper
readers as New York or Liverpool.
The advantages of being known
abroad, though really of tho least
value to ourselves, will be immensely
supplemented by the advantages
accruing to the industries and trade
of the port itself. To estimate the
cash value of these advantages is
not possible. The value of telegra
phic communication to cities and
even country towns on each side of
tho Atlantic Ocean can never be
known ; but it is probably safe to say
that no money consideration could
bo offered to any of them that thoy
would ncccpt as an equivalent for it.

and stand ready to "chip in" with
other countries, her allotment of the
million. required to secure it.
Eihtou Hui.i.ktin : I would like
to ask if the Hawaiian Government
lias kept faith with the New Heb
rides laborers now seen about the
streets of Honolulu? I have been
led to believe that they were brought
here by the Government, with the
understanding that they should be
returned to their own country at
Government expense, on the expira
tion of their tonus of contract; that
they have fulfilled their engage
ment; that they have returned from
the other islands to Honolulu, ex
pecting to be taken home ; that they
have waited here for a long time,
and arc now complaining that lliey
have been deceived. This is how
the matter is represented by the
islanders themselves, and if their
story be a true one they have a just
cause of complaint that should be
removed for the honor of the coun
A BLACK SPOT.
Editok Hui.mvtix: You touched
a black spot in this country's
methods of doing things when you
referred to the commission system
in your issue of yesterday. This is
a species of Stale robbery which has
long nourished in this kingdom, and
by means of which au incalculably
large aggregation of public money
has passed into the possession of
private individuals. Jt was in oper
ation so far back as the days when
Dr. Hutchinson was a crown minis
ter, and received a stem rebuke on
one occasion from that gentleman,
when a certain tradesman tendered
him a commission as a reward for
patronage. The doctor indignantly
rejected the offer, declaring that he
would never again purchase a cent's
worth of material from the trades
man referred to, and he kept his
word. Every crown minister and
government employee has not been
bo conscientious. One ex-minister
of more recent date is known to have
robbed pretty freely and largely in
this way, even going to the length
of claiming a discount from the
salaries of appointees in his depart
ment. The evil still exists, and to
a degree that few outside people
imagine. Jt is high time the guilty
parties were exposed, ignonnnoiisly
thrust out of positions of trust, and
honest and honorable men put in
their places. Justict..
A MAN'S THREE MEALS.
SOME COMMOS-SENSi: SUGGESTION'S
AIIOUT VOOl) IN ITS ItnATION
Hreakfast ought to be a heart'
one, eaten early io the morning, and
eaten slowly, so as to preclude the
possibility of eating too heavily,
which would materially interfere
with the business of the day. A man
or woman who is no breakfast eater
must cither be a heavy over
heavy supper cater, or be in a bad
state of health. A person who re
quires the stimulus of a cup of tea,
or any other stimulus or stiraulaut
whatever, before partaking of solid
food is not in the heydcy of health.
I like to sec a man have his break
fast first, and then feel round for
his cup of coffee, tea or chocolate.
1 have known the strongest and
healthiest of men positively forget
all about the liquid part of their
breakfast aud leave the table without
it. I have known men who scarcely
ever touched a drop of liquid of any
kind from ono week's end to an
other, and who, nevertheless, were
in ruddy and robust health. What
a person eats for breakfast often
gives mo a clue to the state of his
health. Ono example: If, while
sojourning at a hotel, 1 sec a man
come down to breakfast between 10
and 11 o'clock, and sit down to
deviled kidneys with plenty of sauce
(piquant), and perhaps ono poor
puny egg to follow, I would be will
ing to aver that he carries a white
tongue and that his liver sadly
needs seeing to. Ham and eggs,
bacon and ctrgs, or a beefsteak or
underdone chop, with boiled eggs to
follow, and then a cup of nico tea,
is a sensible breakfast for a man
who is going away out into tho fresh
air to walk, or ride, or work till noon,
but not for a person who 1ms to sit
all day in the same position at
manual labor. I emphasize Hie word
manual, because intellectual or men
tal work conduces to appetite. An
author bard at his desk, if his ideas
be flowing freely, if ho bo happy at
his work, and time Hying swiftly
with him, soon gets hungry, which
only proves thnt wo must support
the body well when there is a strain
upon the mind so that no extra ex
penditure of tissuo may lead to
debility. Cheerful conversation in
sures tho easy digestion of a' good
breakfast. It is a pity that in tills
country tho custom of inviting
friends to the matutinal meals is not
jnovo prevalent. It may seem n
strange thing to say, but I would ten
times sooner go out to breakfast than
to dinner. One is, or ought to lie,
freshest in the morning; he then
needs no artificial stimulus to make
him feel bright, witty, happy, as he
loo often does after the duties of the
day are over.
The mid-day meal, or luncheon to
those who dine in the evening and
who have work to do in the after
noon, should be a light one. 1 am
not quite sure that I do not quite ap
prove of the city "snacks." It puts
one past, it sustains nature, it leaves
the mind free to think and to do its
duty, mid, above all, it enables the
stomach to have a rest before the
principal meal of the day. Now,
about this meal, i havo to say that,
if partaken of alone by, one's self, it
ought to be an abstemious one. No
matter how many courses there are,
thcic is not the slightest necessity
of making too free witli them. Dut
it is a fact, which every one must
have felt, that even a moderately
heavy meal is quickly and easily di
gested if accompanied with and fol
lowed by witty or intellectual and
"I'm a dyspeptic; I must not dine
out," I havo lieard a gentleman
more than once remark.
Well, my impression is that it
docs dyspeptics a deal of good to
dine out, if they can eat in moder
ation and judiciously, never being
tempted to call in the aid of arti
ficial stimulus to enable them to do
as men of moro robust physique arc
doing around them. Cassell's

A stranger to ichthyology went
into a Sixth Avenue market, where
there were some live lobsters. Tak
ing one up, he placed it near his
nose and exclaimed. "Whew! I'll
have you prosecuted it smells!"
The lobster's claw closed with a
"whack!" on the fellow's nose,
when the market-man folded his
arms and asked, with a chuckle,
" Who smells now, mister!"
