TUESDAY, OCT. o. 188G.
Respecting the pernicious effects
reBiilting from the use of opium,
there is no division of opinion. It
is universally conceded by all in
vestigators, that opium weakens the
intellect, vitiates the moral nature,
and debilitates the body of the
user, and ultimately produces pre
mature death. These points being
undisputed, arguments in support of
them are superfluous. Herein there
is n wide difference between this
question and the one of u somewhat
similar nature, in borne respects,
which has of late come into pro
minence in "Western nations the
drinking question. In the latter
there is no unanimity of opinion.
"While some able and thorough in
vestigators hold that the use of in
toxicants, in ever so moderate a
degree, is injurious, others, as much
entitled to credence, are of the con
trary belief. No doubt, the reason
of the general concurrence of opi
nion concerning the bad effects of
smoking or eating opium, results
from the fact that those effects are
certain, sure, soon produced, and
But there is a difference of opi
nion as to whether, where a con
siderable "portion of the population,
having become habituated to the use
of the drug, will procure it if possi
ble, it is better to prohibit its im
portation and use by law, or to lega
lize the trade and regulate it by
stringent enactments. This commu
nity is divided here. Some say,
Chinamen will have opium. You
cannot keep it from them. It is use
less to try. Prohibit as much as
you please, you cannot prevent its
being smuggled into the country.
Therefore, admit it free, and let it
be sold under a costly license, and
the legalized trade will be less in
jurious than the illicit trallic. Others
argue, that as opium is admitted to
bo a great evil, destiuctive to its
users, it should be kept out of the
country, or if it cannot be entirely
excluded, every effort possible should
be made to exclude it; that if smug
gling cannot be altogether pre
vented, it can be reduced to very
small proportions; and that licens
ing its sale will not have the effect
anticipated by its advocate's, but
will eventuate in incalculable mis
chief to the native Hawaiian as well
as to the Mongolian.
These are the two opposite posi
tions maintained by the advocates
and opponents of opium .in this
kingdom. We long ago registered
ourselves on the list of the latter,
which we believe to include a
majority of the intelligence, respect
ability and patriotism of the popula
tion. "We have taken the side
against licensing, because we con
scientiously believe it to be the side
of right and reason. We do not
question the sincerity of some on
the other side, but ncvcithcless be
lieye them to be in tho wrong.
, They have never advanced a single
argument that would stand the tent
of analysis, or stated a solitnry fact
to suppoit their conclusions. To
Nay that because there is a possibi
lity of the drug being smuggled into
the country in spite of police vigil
ance, therefore ono or two indivi
duals should, in exchange for a
large fee, have the privilege to im
port and sell, is about equal to tell
ing the Rritish Government that ns
all tho detectives of .Scotland Vnid
and the entire police force of .Eng
land cannot stop the importation of
dynnrojuj, the best tiling they can
do is' to license one or two icspoiisi
bio parties, and let them do all the
importing they please. And to say
that the license is going to prevent
clandestine importations, and that
a restrictive clause tabuing Its use
by native Hawaiinns after it has
been placed within their reach, is
on a par with tho notion that tho
Jicensing of dynamite Is going to
prevent its entering thiottgh Un
licensed channels, or restricting its
salo by the licensees to a certain
class for the purposo of blowing up
tho backslums of London will debar
its getting into other hands, to bo
used for lhe destruction of aristo
cratic mansions and l'ailiament
House. The man who has paid
850,000 or SI 00,000 for a license to
sell opium that has been publicly
admitted without duty, must sell at
a" price that tempts another man to
import secretly without duty and
soil without a license, at a lower
figure. Then, if vigilance cannot
now prevent opium getting ashore
at the port of Honolulu, how is it
possible to keep it from' any native
who desires, when its free use is
allowed to the Chinese throughout
Licensed opium is no now untried
experiment to this country, the re
sult of which is entirely speculative.
It was tried for a scries of years,
and with whnt effect old residents
know. The very state of things
Hint its advocates now contend
would not exist under n licensing
system, did exist when the experi
ment was in progress. Smuggling
was largely practised. Actual deaths
from its use among the Chinese were
quite numerous and frequent. The
natives were fast acquiring the habit
of smoking and eating. Even white
foreigners were drawn into the
It was a blessing for the country
and the people when prohibition was
enacted, and its abolition we should
regard as one of the saddest calami-
tics that could befall the land.
Earnestly do we hope that the Leg
islature will not commit so unwise
Yesterday afternoon theic were a
few bleached faces around Mer
chant, Fort and Queen streets, upon
its becoming generally known that
C. K. Miller had left the town not
v ithoul a passport, but without
saying " good-bye." Being assured
he was actually outside the reef, it
was deemed .high time to analyze his
character and conduct. This was
done both by those who knew him
and those who did not. Chris, as
the noting man was called about
town, was smart in a certain way.
Of cheek, lie had his full share, and
probably a little more. This was
the secret of his securing the con
fidence of the confiding. Nothing
succeeds like a good vigorous
development of precocity, especially
if it be accompanied by a measure
of suavity. The honest, unassum
ing, modest man of worth seems to
stand a poor show in this commu
nity, while the fast young fellow
who gambles and makes a big
splurge, can have all the credit and
friends he needs.
The following brief but compre
hensive item, clipped from a paper
bv the last mail, has been sent U3
by a friend deeply interested, in the
education of the young, for publica

POSTAGE ON FOREIGN LETTERS.
The following is from a San Fran
cisco paper :
Postnms-ter Bryan calls attention
to the advisability of seeing that for
eign lettei'ri have tho proper amount
of stamps. " In a great, many cases
there is a shoitage on letters for
other countries, which deficiency is
collected where lliti tnissivo is de
livered, at double tho shortage,
This cniisOh a loss in revenue to tho
San Fiancihco ofllce of fiom 8500 to
$1,000 a year. Another matter in
this connection is that letters bliort
on postage ate not delivered as
promptly ns full paid mail, as tliey
are holdback ut the olllccs where
they arc received until the amount
due can be calculated.
The action of Postmaster Bryan,
of San Frajicieco, ought to be hailed
with thanks in this community.
Every mail brings to us circulars of
all kinds, scaled, too, in ninny in

Minutes read and approved,
Rep. Hayselden moved the follow
ing: Whereas a resolution was passed
by this houorable assembly on Sept.
o 188G, that no new bills were to be
brought in after September 0th, and
whereas it has been brought to the
notice of this honorable assembly
that it is desirable that an important
amendment be made to the piesent
Tax Law, anc
Whereas biich amendment can not
be made without tjie introduction of
a special act tor that purpose, there
fore, Be it resolved : That leave Is here
by granted Unto Fred. II. Haysel
en, member for Honolulu, to intro
duce an act for the purpose of
amending sections 13 and 15 of
chapter 48 of the session laws of
Rep. Thurston opposed tho reso
lution, claiming that it was out of
order, and asked tho ruling of tnc
chair on the point.
Rep. Hayselden referred to other
resolutions of the hoiibe which have
not been adhered to especially that
prescribing the hours of meeting
and adjournment. The majority of
the house could pass the resolution
if they saw lit.
Rep. Thurston said there were
many things a majority of the house
could not do. They could not sum
marily annul the rules of the house.
The President ruled mat it re
quired a two-thirds vote of the house
to adopt the resolution.
Rep. Ilayselden moved tho resolu
tion he adopted.
Rep. Thurston moved the resolu
tion be indellnitcly postponed. The
raising of the rate of taxation, as
contemplated by thu amendments
proposed by the member for Hono
lulu, thirty-three and one-third per
cent, was an unjustifiable increase
The rate of taxation on real estate
and personal property doos not show
tho full amount of tho country's
taxation. The real taxation is re
presented by the expenditures of
the Government, which havo been
at tho rate of 2,500,000 per annum,
which is contributed, through various
channels, by a population of 80,000.
It will bo a positive outrage for tho
taxpayers of this country to bo
called upon for thirty-three- and one
third per cent additional taxation,
for they cannot stand it. The in
dustries of the country, particularly
that of the sugar planters cannot
boar any more taxation. If it is
Jeviei, somo of them will bo reduced
to bankruptcy. Ho djd not boliovo
there were ten plantations in the
ldugdom which can show a profit ou
their balanco sheets for last year'fi
cropst The prico of feiigar, since
January Inst, has been lower than
ever before. Increased tnxatlou
will simply help to picelpitutc the
country into universal bankruptcy.
Rep! Kaulukou roso to a point of
order. Tho bill to increase taxation
is not before the house.
Rep. Thurston was simply dis
cussing the propiiety of introducing
the proposed bill.
Rep. Ilayselden rose to a point of
order. The member should keep
to tho subject matter of the resolu
tion. Rep. Thurston said that was pre
cisely what we was doing. The
resolution proposed to amend the
'sections of the tax law llxing the
rale of taxation. He objected to
change tho rate in any way. To
reduce it would injure the public
service of the country, and to in
ciease it would be an outrage upon
the tax payers.
Rep. Aliolo thought tho discus
sion would be more in order if the
bill itself was before the house.
The plantations which are working
at a loss icprescnt one side of the
question, the other side of the
question, the plantations in every
quaiter paying large dividends, hus
not been told. A bill had passed
by which all children arc free to at
tend English schools. Something
must be done to piovide for the
additional expenses of the schools.
He moved the previous questiou.
The adoption of the resolution
was carried on the following divi

questions of the Minister of the In
terior: 1. To what judicial circuit does
Ocean Island or Papapa Island be
long? S. Also to what electoral district
does the said island belong V
.'?. Also to what taxation district

THE OPIUM QUESTION.
Editok Bulletin-: The letter of
Prof. F. W. Damon which appeared
in your columns on Saturday last,
and the petition of the clergymen
of the city to the President of the
Legislature against the passage of
the opium bill, induces me to take
up the pen on this subject. The
authorities cited by Mr. Damon on
the subject of the moral and phy
sical effects of this drug, are, or
ought to be, suiUcient to convince
the most stubborn-minded legislator
of the injurious, poisonous, and per
nicious ' consequences which the
habitual use of opium produces.
Mr. Dampn'B opinion is worthy of
being weighed before being cast
aside, Mr. Damon has resided in
the Kwang-Tung province, and in
that city of all cities, Canton, where
opium is more freely used than any
other pait of tho world. A few
month's residence in Canton would
afford Mr. Damon opportunities of
acquiring knowledge concerning
opium that could not be acquired in
this city in twenty years.
The final appeal of Mr. Damon is
deserving of repetition. "Instead
of removing -restrictions, let every
effort be mnde to keep out so far as
possible this drug from the King
dom. In tho name of our common
humanity, of tho blessed religion of
Him who taught tho world tho
meaning of universal brotherhood,
let us btrivo to reach out a helping
hand to, not lay a curse upon, any
member of the human family."
Hoping thnt the bill will be killed
.on its final reading.
I am yours, etc.,

On my lelurn to Alien siwitli, I whs
impressed with n detiietos,ee Ali.Pueh,
whose reputation btood so high. His

situated the lovely ivyiiiiinllcd Chinch

apparently about 40 years old. ofjnediunv
height, rather slight, wilhii pleasant ami,

of Ufa great nfllictioii uiul ot his lcmark
able and almost miiiiculous reiki, and.
that I had come to leurn fiom his own
lips, what there was of tiuth in lhe re.
Mr. Pugli remarked that his neigh
hois had taken a kindly and symp
athetic interest in his ense lor muny
years, but of late their intciet had been
greatly awakened by a happy change in
his condition. What you repoit us hav.
ing heard abroad, stud he, is substant
ially true, with one exception. I never
understood that my case was over given
up as hopeless by any Physician. I
have been treated by bcvciul Doctors
hcie.ibouts, as good as any in "Wales, but
unfortunately no prescription of theirs

stomach and loss of appetite, which iho
Doctors told mo was Dyspepsia. What
food I could hold in my stomach seem

thrown up with painful leUhing". This
was followed after a time with a hoarse
ness uud u raw soreness of the tin oat
which the Doclois called bronchitis,
and I was treated for that, but with
little success Then came shoitness of
breath and a sense of suffocation, espe.

that I could not sleep in bid, but hud to

my bowels as well as upwards into my
lungs and throat. In the violent cough-,

my abdomen would expand and collapse
