TUESDAY, APRIL 20, 188G.
One of the foolish "suggestions"
of the Advertiser is that the Ka
mehameha statue should be trans
ferred from in front of the Govern
ment building to Palace square. The
statue is where it is, probably, as
much to adorn the Government
building grounds as to show off it
self. The fire has proved to be a great
rcvcalcr as well as a great consumer.
It has consumed structures of every
conceivable kind, from the lowest
and dirtiest hovels to stately and
well appointed mansions, and reveal
ed to the public gaze trees, wells,
ponds, and various descriptions of
excavations the existence of which
was previously unknown to the
The fire has not actually rendered
houseless so large a number of na
tives as at. first bight appears, be
cause quite a number of those burnt
out were from the other islands and
the country districts of this island,
who were Btaying with their friends
on a visit. Many of them have
gone back to their homes, and many
more will go during the week, per
ceptibly lessening the number left
behind to be provided for.
The lire, as all great llres do, ex
posed the two sides of human nature
the good and the bad, the selfish
and the generous. "While some were
robbing and stealing, others were
saving and protecting. Some gave
their services and the services of
their animals and drays, voluntarily
and gratuitously, to remove the
furniture and effects of strangers as
well as friends, while others heart
lessly refused to move a finger until
liberally paid in advance with hard
The lire has developed an exhibi
tion of the natural and rem-kable
nonchalance of the native Hawaiian.
People of all other nationalities who
have suffered, either directly or in
directly, exhibit by word or look a
sense of loss, and some demonstra
tively. But the unfortunate natives
smile, shrug their shoulders, talk
and laugh cheerfully, and seem to
regard the devastation as a pleasant
diversion, having the one disagree
able .feature of having been origin
ated by a Chinaman.
The destruction of the fire is
great, making many destitute and
forlorn, but it has probably saved
Honolulu from a great epidemic.
The filth, tho stench, tho accumula
tion of disintegrating substances
that were consumed by the flames,
would, in all likelihood, havo pro
duced in time a pestilence more
dreadful, mojo destructive, and
more saddening than the conllngra
tiou itself. Viewed in this light,
the fire may be regarded as a visita
tion of mercy and an agent of good.
It is suggested that the insurance
agents and business men should prof
fer substantial recognition of the ser
vices of the gallant British marines
at the lire. Many of them were off
on leave and sprang to the work with
their liberty clothes on, tints involv
ing personal loss in tho garments ruin
ed by tearing and soiling. As their
pay is small, it would be only decent
for the owners of tho millions of capi
tal and property saved by tho exer
tions of tho sailors, to give tliein a
purse sulllcicnt to cover at least the
cost of their damaged apparel.
The lire has done more material
injury to native Ilawaiians than
most of, the white people imagine.
Scores of native families bave been
loft IioubcIosb and destitute, besltlos
bciug owners of a largo proportion
of the buildings occupied by China
men, to whom they were leased. Tho
natives arc in icality tho greatest
sufferers. Considerable of tho
stock of tho Chineso store-keepers
was tho property of others, and
others undoubtedly have to bear tho
loss. Whereas the loss of the na
tives falls directly and almost
wholly on themselves.
Tho fire has had a tendency to
intensify the anti-Chincso feeling
nmonc tho natives. On the night of
the fire there wore times and places
when and where this feeling was
well nigh getting beyond control.
Particularly at thu King street
bridge and extending back to be
yond tho Chineso theatre, where
probably 3,000 people had assem
bled, things had a nasty look about
midnight. The natives wcio itching
for nn attack on the Chinese, and
would probably have inaugurated a
riot that would ht.vo involved the
entire crowd had it not been for tho
timely interference of a few for
eigners, who succeeded with dilll
ctilty in pacifying tho excited na
tives. "While visiting the neighbor
hood on tho north side of jMaunakea
street, yesterday, where the natives
aic the greatest losers, they were
bitter in their denunciations of the
Celestial, speaking of the conflagra
tion as his doing and the culmina
tion of his wickedness.
