reckless handling after arrival to
brick that have come over two
thousand miles in good condition is
n shame. A large percentage is
broken, smashed, ruined: and all
for the want of a little care. "Why
cannot those who have the handling
of bricks here learn to liamllo thein
as they ate handled elsewhere?
They ceitainly can if they wish, and
they certainly ought to feel sulllcicnt

FRIDAY. AUGUST 20. 1880,
"A STITCH IN
TIME SAVES NINE."
struck a boft spot
yesterday, when he said in the Legis
lature that lie "believed the road
taxes would bcsufllcicnt if expended
promptly and piopcrly. Often five
minutes' work at the right lime
would save hundreds of dollars of
expense." The latter part of this
statement is a point which the
Bulletin has been insisting upon
for years. AVhetlicr the load tax,
if expended promptly and piopcrly,
viould be HUfllcient for all oidinary
road purposes, we are not prepaicd
to endorse or deny. Hut certainly
five minutes' woikatthe proper time
would often save hundreds of dollars
of expense. -,A stitch in time saves
nine," is as true of loatls as of
wearing apparel. The "tilcli in
time" on our public tlioioughfare
is neglected with discreditable fre
quency, and the labor and tost of
the "nine" .have ultimately to be
charged to the public funds. A
little rut or a small depression may
be repaired at a trifling uoM. but
when neglected and allowed to ex
tend by wear it is not so cheap a
matter. Unfortunately lor the pub
lic comfoit and the public purse
these aic facts apparently not f idly
realized by our road authorities.
DELAYS ARE DANCEROUS.
If tlie item of Sj.000 added to
the Appropriation Bill on "Wednes
day, as "aid to the Trustees of the
Sailors' Home," has the effect of
shoitly removing that structuic fiom
its ptesent site, we shall consider it
to have been a wise appropriation.
The Minister of Interior explained
that the Sailors' Home Society "were
willing to give up their valuable
frontage on Merchant street, and to
put up a new building further buck
on Bethel street, provided tlie Legis
lature duplicated tlie amount of
$6,000 whenever the bociety sub
scribed so much." It is to be hoped
that this item will be on the Bill at
its final passage, and that as soon
thereafter as possible the Society
will produce its stipulated 85,000,
and claiming the legislative vote,
proceed to action without loss of
time. "Delays are dangeious,"
and delay in removing that old
wooden tinder box is especially so.
The most immediate danger is to
two important government buildings
the Post OHice and the Station
House. Any day or night it is with
in the bounds of possibility that tbe
old wooden Home may become the
scene of a conflagration, and in that
event the two institutions just named
would scarcely hope to escape un
scathed. Lettheie bono delay in
removing the danger, by removing
the Sailors' Home.
BANANAS IN SAILING VESSELS.
This morning's Advertiser asks,
in icferencc to the petition praying
that lowering of freight on bananas
between here and San Francisco be
made a condition of any subsidy to
steamers, " has it ever occurred to
the petitioneis and their fiiends to
think what would become of the
banana business if the steamers in
question were withdrawn, and the
canying trade to the coast was
again left to sailing vessels':" This
question seem to imply that the
Advertiser is not informed respect
ing the banana trade picvions to
the establishment of iegular steam
communication with the Coast. At
one time bananas were exported in
sailing vessels only, and since
steamers have been regularly run
ning, and until quite lcccntly,
they have been sent to the Coast
in considerable quantities by ailing
vessels. True, the banana business
has been considerably expanded by
the steamers, but the expansion has
been too rapid and too large, so that
the tiade lias become unprofitable,
and many cultivator are discontinu
ing the production of bananas.
Heie a few months ago three or
four bundles of good fiuit could be
pui chased for the amount of freight
on one bunch to tho Coast. Banana
cultivation at such prices is not only
unprofitable, but leads straight in
the diieclion of tlie insolvency court.
Theie has been no money in banana
laising for a long period past, and
unless prices go up or freights come
down many now engaged in that
line of cultivation contemplate tinn
ing their attention to something else.
When the planters sent their pro
duce to San Francisco in sailing
vessels tlie supply was not so gieat,
and prices were consequently better.
There was money in bannnas in
thoe days, and some cultivators
made little foi tunes, ceasing to plant
when planting became a losing ven
ture. To be sure, it is not so safe
to cxpoit bananas by sailing vessels
as by steamers, because the former
arc longer "oinj;, and unceitainas
to tlie time they will require. But
if the fruit is cut at a certain stage
of development, caicfully handled,
and properly taken care ofon board,
it will arrive over in good condition
after being eighteen or twenty days
on the water. So let it not be ima
gined that the banana business is
entiicly dependent on steamers.

HANDLING OF BRICKS.
. Bricks are coming more and
more into use every year for build
ing purposes in Honolulu. The late
great fire and the extension of the
limits within which none but fire
proof buildings can bo erected, have
created a large and pressing de
mand for bricks at the ptesent time.
Bricks aic moie costly than wood,
but the' arc also more dm able, and
the difference between the first cost
of the two is made up with good
interest in the end. Besides, build
ings constructed of biicks aic far
less liable to the lavages of Ihe, and
thereforo less expensive to insure
with their contents. A lealizalion
of these facts has induced the com
mencement of some brick huildings
in the burnt niea outside of the pic
Bcribcd (ire limits. Bricks aro
rnoro liable to damage in handling
than wood, and therefore lequire
inoro care. This is a fact which
Honolulu draymen and others en
gaged in loading, unloading, and re
moving bricks, seem not to have
learnt. Tlie rough and careless
way in which these peoplo dash

Mr. Gibson piesenled a majority
repoit of select committee, as fol

Legislative Assembly. Sin: Your

Herman Koekmann, Bishop of
Olba and Vicar Apostolic of the
Hawaiian Islands, in trust for the
Catholic Mission of the Hawaiian
Islands, of certain ptemises occu

word "of" in the seventh line of
the bill between the words "islands"
and "certain" be stricken out.
Your committee, after a caicfnl
examination of the document and a
conference with the Hevetend
Father Leonor, one of the Catholic
missionaries, with reference to tho
uses of said piece of land are satis
lied that it has been devoted to
chaiituble or eleemosynary pur

years ago, ami altliougii tno nrst
considerations have not been liber

that the object' was to accommodate
a religious body with a piece of
land to be used for the objects in

and pioper for the Government,
under the ciicumstances, to grant
them a title as set foith in tlie bill,

Mayor Hodges of Baltimoie, in
addressing the graduates of tho
Rep. Kaunamano, by leave, read
a first time an act to regulate the
importation and sale of opium. It
authorizes the Minister of the In
terior to grant two licenses for im
poiting and selling opium. The
licenses are to be issued on receipt
of a fee of S 10,000 each; and, if
theie are moie than two applicants,
to be put up at public auction, at an
upset price of S 10,000, after notice
of three weeks. The sale to native
Hawaiians is prohibited except on a
physician's order. Referred, on mo
tion of Bep. Castle, to the Punting
Committee to be piinted.
Hep, Kaulukou, by leave read a
first time an act to amend chap. 80,
Penal Code. Befened, on motion of
Bep, Paehaole, to select comiuittco

Bep. Nahalo moved a suspension

postage bill fiom the table. Lost.
Hep, Kaulukou gave notice of an
act to authoiizu the Government to
borrow the balance authorized under
82,000,000 loan act of 1882.
Minister Gibson had not had full
supervision of all the expenditure,
but believed no expenditure, had
been incurred for that put pose. It
was necessary, however, to give the
Guards improved Pinall arms.
Bep. Brown said S70, 187 had
been spent last period, of which
810,000 was for guards to Govern
ment buildings, leaving 00,800
really spent for the military. He
Bep. Dole suppotted tlie amend
ment of the member for Koolauloa,
and went on to speak of the uscless
ness of heavy expenditujes for mili
tary show. ' The last real service
for which the military was called
was the Kauai rebellion, which,
however, was quelled by civilians be
fore the guaids arrived. In compa
rison to Health, Education and
every other practical purpose, the
amount spent for military display
was entirely disproportionate. He
wished there was a military organi
zation such as he could admire, but
there was neither system, discipline
nor order about the various squads
makinir tin the military establish
Bep. Kaulukou said he had made
a mistake. His motion should have
been for $88,01)0, and he would
move that amount now.
Bep. Brown said they had a mes
sage from His Majesty asking for
rcticnchment, and theie was no
better place to carry it into effect
than right here. Altogether 108,000
was voted at last session for military
purposes, of which 10,000 was for
guards to public buildings. He was
willing to make ample provision for
tlie King's dignity, and considered
SOO.000 was more than sullicient.
Tlie Ministeis ha'd asked for a simi
lar amount for general military pni
noses this session, bnt exclu
sive of the King's Guaid. and now a
member sent here to icpiosont the
people came foiward a ml asked for
Bep. Dickey spoke in faor ol his
motion for 3o,000, quoting the mo
derate expenditures of former pe
riods. Ben. Aholo remarked on tlie fre
quency of the argument submitted
to the house against military expen
ditures. The community was not al
ways peaceful, for not very long ago
a seiious riot was put down in Ho
nolulu by loreign armed men. He
contended that the inci cased
expenditure was caused by
higher 'cost of living than
in former yeais. All nations
had armed guards, and guaidian
angels weie heard of in both heaven
and hell ; therefore, why should not
this kingdom, which was not alto
gether the paradise sometimes des
cribed, have its bands of wairiors?
Bep. Paehaole advocated 00,000.
Bep. Nahinu favoied the item as
in the bill. He had a vivid recollec
tion of the 11th of February, 1874,
as his blood was the first shed on
that occasion. He was tbe first
member of the Assembly to fall into
the hands of the mob, and must
have lost a eallon of blood when
clubbed on tbe head. The present
chairman did his best to restoie
order; but the Government was
weak, without an army, and the
police were useless. The motto,
"Ua Man ke. Ea o ka Aina i ka
Pono.V looked very well up on that
shield ; but armies weie recognized
as necessary to the public safety in
all countries. Matters were very
peaceful now, but the riot of 187-1
arose from a very "light cause. The
Government of "that time ought to
have been ashamed of having to
borrow soldiers from foreign war
sbins to restore order. The lion.
member for Liliue had said civilians
could be depended on to preserve
order, but on that occasion tho.se
gentlemen were not on hand. The
lion. Noble Bishop, then Minister of
Foieign Affairs, was i tinning from
room lo room, not knowing what to
do. The native .members were left
to the mercy of the mob, and one
such experience was enough for the
Bep. Kaunamano said having
soldiers in this kingdom was no new
thing. Away back Kalaniopuu was
a meat warrior and made a con
quest of pait of Maui. Then in the
last century Kamehanieha the Great
had lus guard increased. The lion,
member for Koolauloa spoke against
having nn army for mere show, but
his own house was full of pictures
and other ornaments, the only object
of which was show. The member
for Liliue had a beautiful house with
a highly cultivated garden, but all
for show and display. Not having
gun factories in this kingdom, mili
tary supplies were costly. If the
country could afford it, ho would be
willing to have 8100,000 devoted to
military purposes. They ought to
have an army of 2,000 men.
At noon, on motion of Noble
Cleghorn, the committee took recess
