TUESDAY, APRIL 13, 1880.
The DaiUi 1'ress is showing
symptoms of a peculiarly undcfln
able condition of mentality. Its
friends, including ourselves, are
beginning to feel anxious. A week
or two ago it got into a state of un
safe excitement over the "publica
tion of public business," and being
unable to maintain the position it
had taken up, probably owing to
agitated nerves, gave a solemn pro
mise to straighten the matter out in
a day or two. It is a misfortune
that our contemporary lias not yet
sulllciently recovered to be in a
proper state of mind to fulfil its
word. Indeed, subsequent symp
toms seem to indicate increasing dis
turbance in the region of its brain.
Tho leading editorial of last Fiiday,
the ninth instant, was a bad sign
and produced uneasiness in the
breasts of many devoted adherents.
This morning's issue affords no
indication of any appreciable im
provement. In fact, gives rise to
apprehensions of the derangement
becoming chronic. "When an intoxi
cated man rails against drunkenness,
bystanders smile; and when our
contemporary talks of "some peo
ple" being "very hard to please,
and, like self-styled critics, think
everything must be criticised to
keep up a reputation for criticism
which is too often founded upon
mere prejudice," we feel inclined to
smile, too, just as we do when we
hear the saucepan accusing the frying-pan
of having a dirty face.
PACIFIC CABLE PROSPECTS.
By the Colonial mail it is learned
that Sir Alexander Stuart had
visited Ottawa, to confer with the
Dominion Government regarding the
project of a telegraph cable fioni
the Canadian Pacific Coast to the
Australasian Colonies. A news
paper comment represents the Cana
dians as being eager to develop a
Pacific trade in connection with
their transcontinental railway, now
ready for regular trafllc. It is fur
ther believed that the British Gov
ernment, from Imperial motives,
will substantially nid the enterprise,
while the Australasian colonists are
willing to take a goodly share of the
burden for the sake of greater and
cheaper facilities of communication
than they now enjoy with the out
side world. Doubtless it will be to
the interest of the corporation under
taking tho enterprise, to have a
restiog place and repeating station
for the cable on these Islands, in
which case our Government may be
able to secure the privileges of tele
graphic communication with tho
world for something less than the
maximum subsidy granted by the
last Legislature, namely, an annual
sum of $20,000 for fifteen years.
At the same time, it is to be hoped
the new Legislature will be disposed
to exercise no less liberality, if
deemed necessary, than the preced
ing one, to secure a convenience of
such untold value for the kingdom
as telegraphic connection with tho
rest of the world.
A VALUABLE ELEMENT.
Tho crews of the vessels of the
German squadron, numbering 1,08ft
men, together with tho 200 people
on board the S. S. Alameda when
she called at Auckland, were in
flcluded in the census of New Zeal
"ufid, then being taken. Thus over
1,200 persons wcro added nt one
lap to tho recorded population of
iho colony. This curious incident
does not, however, involve inac
curacy of tho census, at least to tho
UAlUIll Willi Illiiy OUIJCMIVIOI'J Mli.ui.
Probably anywhere from oo to
several thousand of a transient popu
lation would be found at almost any
date within tho cqast line of the
country. ' Passenger vessels arc
coming and going all the time, while
vessels of foreign navies frequently
drop in for longer or shorter calls.
So long as these vessels are within
the borders of the country, all on
board of them are under its laws and
protection, and thus, for the time
being, belong legitimately to Its
population. Those 1,200 mentioned
above may be all gone the next
morning, but possibly tho aveinge
number of people coming and going
likewise, every night in tho year,
may bo equal to, if it docs not ex
ceed, that figure. Therefore, this is a
class that ought to be included in
the census. It is a species of popu
lation, moreover, which is to be
com ted by any country, for it is
one that leaves much wealth behind
in its ebbing. Tills kingdom should,
on this consideration, invite, ns
cordially as possible, an increase of
the travelling public to its shores.
To this end the Government, in
making compacts with steamship
companies, should insist upon the
best possible facilities being afforded
tiavellcrs to do, and be done by, the
CIVE US WATER.
Euitok Bulletin: Having suf
fered the last few months the greatest
ineonvcnienccfiomour water supply,
I request you to allow me somu of
your valuable space to make this
fact public, and thus induce those
responsible to take immediate mea
sures to remedy this unsatisfactory
state of affairs appertaining to the
duties of our Minister of the Interior
and the waterworks.
That the Makiki Reservoir, dining
tho continuance of dry weather, is
entirely inadequate to supply our
present want is illustrated by the
fact that even those nearest to it
have hardly water enough for ordi
nary purposes during the day, while
those situated higher up, say between
Pcnsacola and Victoria, and on
Kinau and Lunalilo streets, have no
water at all, varying from 2 to -1
o'clock in the afternoon until fiom
C to 1) of the next morning. This is
easily explained, and would be to
the olllcials if they took the trouble
to look into the matter, when wo
take into consideration the size of
the main, which is only about a -1
inch pipe, and further the rapid in
crease of the population in this part
of the plains. Nor are these the
only causes of the meager water
supply, but the Reservoir lias been
actually deprived of facilities to
gather and accumulate water,through
negligence and mismanagement since
its construction. To illustrate my
meaning fui thcr about this, I will
offer the following explanation :
"About 1 or U miles from the
Reservoir arc situated I think .r
wells, yielding a constant supply of
pure clean water, which gathers in
the nearest gulch and runs down
toward the Reservoir. Formeily
this water, instead of running in the
gulch, used to be led along Humes,
thus, saving at least 'i of it. But
when the steam engine was introduced
at Makiki to keep the well which
was being dug at the time clear of
water for the working men employed
digging the same, this Hume, costing
the government some ten thousand
dollars, was partly broken up as
firewood for the engine, and the
other part left to take care- of itself,
consequently the water has to run
into the gulch again, and instead of
all of it or at least the largest part
reaching the Reservoir, it soaks
into the ground, while only aeiy
small portion actually finds its way
into it. And what is almost ns bad
is that the water thus running a long
distanco through this gulch is not
alone wasted, but is actually spoiled
by gathering in its passage all sorts
of vegetablo and organic- matter,
which is a daily and almost houily
source of complaint and annoyance
to all neighboring housewives, to
say nothing of its dispaiagemcnt to
If our august Majesty's motto,
"Increase tho Nation," shall bo
fulfilled, or, as out jicre on the
plains, it is fulfilling, and that very
rapidly, His Majesty's Minister
would do well to see that this in
crease hoped for and asked for, and
in our part of the town already
there, la supplied with n uufllcicnuy
Therefore give us water, Minister
Gulick 1 Not much to ask for, but
a terriblo thing to want. Will you
then kindly remember this want of
ours while you have plenty, and
issue your orders accordingly and
promptly lo havo this nuisnnee
I am not writing this to comment
on governmental management or
mismanagement, but would like to
point out this to Ills Excellency
Minister Gulick, that it would pay
the Government to see to an abun
dant supply of water rather, than
pay for property burnt down for
lack of it. It is n thing perhaps
not thought of by many people even
here on the plains, but 1 would not
mind telling those that in my humble
estimation Micro is not a house that
is supplied from Alakiki reservoir
that could be saved by water from
thnt source at the pi csent time. A
comfortable outlook, is it not? We
pay our water rates in advance, the
watcmoiks arc bj' all cstinintes the
best paying investment our Govern
ment has, then why can't wo have
enough water? I have thought that
it might be the temperance move
that causes this sudden falling off
of our water, if this is so why
another lecture season on that very
worthy subject would leave us
without .any. In hopes that this
will draw the immediate attention of
the authorities concerned, and
thanking you for your space, I can
safely Bign myself.
