THE EMPEROR OF JAPAN'S BIRTHDAY.
The Government :uil Consular
flags have liccn flying throughout
the tiny in commemoration of the
'Mth birthday anniversary ot His
Imperial Majesty, jUusto llito, Em
peror of Japan. The lloynl Ha
waiian Band played an excellent
programme this morning at the
Japanese Consulate-General, Nuti
anu Avenue, in celebration of the
event. Hawaiian Government olll
cials, foreign representatives, and
many private citizens have shown
their respect for (lie Emperor of
Japan and the Japanese nation and
people, by calling at the Consulate
General during the day, and proffer
ing their congiatulations. They
were received by Mr. Taro Ando,
Diplomatic Agent and Consul-Gcn-cral,
and staff .Aith the natural and
unaffected couitesy and entertained
with the genuine hospitality charac
teristic of the Japanese Consulate
General at Ilonolnhi.
Kcally, the Bur.i.in ix was not aware
that it had been "trifling" with its
readers by "advancing side issues
and puerile objections" relative to
the harbor question. The "side
issues, V so called by the Herald,
have been mild and brief corrections
of an.erring.conlcuiporary, intended
solely for his benefit. It appears,
however, that he is not in a condition
of feeling to profit by our humble
efforts to lead him in the right path ;
for he comes back to the subject
again this morning, and refers to our
statement of the United States
survey of Pearl Harbor as having
been advanced "with an air of
transcendental wisdom and an as
sumption of thoiough information"
which we did not possess. The
"transcendental wisdom" and "as
sumption of thorough information"
are passed as mere fanciful creations
of the Herald, but the request for
us "to publish the result of the
American naval investigation" merits
brief notice. We confess we are
unable to stale the precise result. If
we could, we would. Not for the
sake of conferring "a great favor on
the Hawaiian Government," for wc
cannot believe that that Government
is so uninformed in the matter as
our contemporary represents. But
we arc able to state as one of the
general results of the investigation,
that it was estimated that the deep
ening of the entrance to Pearl
Harbor, so as to admit large vessels,
would cost a comparatively large
sum of money large lor a small
country like Hawaii, but compara
tively small for a great country like
the United States amounting to
millions of dollars. This is no sec
ret information. Those who eon
ducted the survey spoke freely at
the time to residents here who inter
It has been calculated that there
is nb'out threo "runaways" of car
riage horbcs per week in Honolulu.
Generally there is not much damage
done, though in piobably every in
stance cither the horse, carriago or
harness is injured. There is, per
haps, three hundred carriages used
daily in Honolulu. Three of these
are found to be damaged pur week;
then for oneo in two years, say,
those who lido to and fiom busi
ness in their carriages' may expect
to have them injured. '
It is the shafts which generally
Buffer the most, then comes the
wheels, and lastly the body. The
harness is always giving way here
and there, and in two years is
practically renewed throughout.
The' cause of these runaways is
generally sheer carelessness on the
part of the drivers. It should be
borne in mind that the average car
riago horse that is harnessed in the
stablo, with 'blinders" on the
bridle, does not really know what it
is Hint he is hntiHlig, around. Ho
jogs nlong contentedly enough Villi
about so much of a load, !rnd as
long as he is not left to his own de
vices, behaves very well. liut
"some day" he is left standing in
front of a dry gooda store, fray
and gets restless. His fair mistress
is in the store immersed in laces,
frills nnd tiinunings.. Time is
nothing to her, while the horse gets
hungry, nervous from fly bites, in
dignant at the long delay, and
finally starts off, quietly it may be,
Then rushes out &01110 well-meaning
but altogether too blundering
poison who yells "Whoa!" and
frantically plunges at the horse's
heath Of course the anhnal bolts
and the result is a broken carriage,
a disrupted harness, perhaps an in
To repair all these is expensive.
The average cost of cacti runaway
cannot be less thou SoO, the aggre
gate amount paid yearly for repairs
attendant upon them amounting to
about $7,000. No close estimate
can be made of the money cost of
repairing damages to persons in-.
volved in runaways, but it is con
siderable, and much of the whole
expense might be saved by always
bearing in mind the caution, "Secure
your carriage horse, when you leave
him standini' alone."

Honolulu, October (30, 1880.
LOU MORRIS, THE BILLIARDIST.
Alonzo II. Morris was horn
Boston, U. S., and first came to the
notice of the public as a first-class
billiardist "in 1870 in the prelimi
nary tournament for the champion
ship of the United States, in which
he carried off the first prize, defeat
ing Eugene Carter, the champion of
Ohio ; Thos. J. Gallagher, champion
of Missouri ; and Thos. Wallace,
champion of Maryland. This pre
liminary tournament was for the
purpose Of deciding who should
play in the main tournament, which
was limited to ten players. In the
main tournament Joseph Dion won
first prize, Jacob Schaeffer second,
and Morris and Geo. F. Slosson tied
for third. In the play off Slosson
won, although Morris defeated him
in the tournament game. This gave
Morris fourth prize. He finished
ahead of Wm. Sexton, Maurice
Daly, Pudolph Ileiscr, Wallace and
Carter. In the same year he won
the championship" of "the United
States at fifteen bail pool by defeat
ing the champion, Saml. F.' Knight.
As a man cannot hold his own at
billiards and pool at the same time,
Morris concluded to continue on as
a billiardist, and forfeited the em
blem to G. E. Wahlstrom, who was
the fust challenger. In 1883 he
played in the 8-inch balk line pre
liminary tournament in Chicago,
and again won first prize, defeating
Carter, Heiser, Wallace, Gallagher
and Maggioli, champion of Loui
siana, and .secured fifth place 111 the
main tourney, which was won by
Jacob Schaeffer, Vigneaux, cham
pion of Europe, 2nd; Daly, 3rd;
Sexton, -I tli ; Dion, Cth ; Wallace,
7th. Mori is was in bad health
throughout this tournament. He is
notorious in the States as an all
round billiardist that is he plays
all styles of billiards without having
a favorite game. He has been in
California for the past three years,
and has played several games there
with Benj. F. Saylor and J. F. B.
McCleery. Ho was handicapped in
all of them, but won theni all except
when ho attempted to discount
Saylor. lie played Harvey Mc
Kcmia, of Detioit, in San Francisco
last February 0,000 points straight
billiards, and defeated him, Mc
Kcniui only making 3,300. Morris
has played J. F. B. McCleery four
pin pool" mulches even up, and won
two nnd lost two. A match has
been arranged between them for
Thursday evening at the Commer
cial Billiard Boom. P. O. Adver
tiser. A NOBLE WARRIOR 300 YEARS AGO.
It was dining a battle before
Ztitphon that the episode occurred
which made the namo of Sir Philip
Sidney so remarkable in history. He
had signalized himself ono day by
prodigies of valor, for he was a war
like enthusiast of the highest order.
Two horses hail been killed under
him and ho was in tho act of mount
ing 'a third when an nrquebuse, shot
fiom tho trenches, broke one of his
thigh-bones. Ho was iinablo to
manage his horse, but tho faithful
animal boroliim out of tho field to
tho camp, a milo and a half distant.
Ho was in great agony and faint
from loss of blood, and when pas
sing the rest of the army ho called
for water. It was brought to him,
but as ho wns putting the bottle to
his mouth, ho saw a poor English
soldier borne past who was more
severely wounded than himself and
who gazed at the bottle longingly,
and with ltaggered eyes. "Thy
necessity is yU greater tuni mine,"
said the gentle and heroic Sidney ;
nor would he drink until the soldier
had been satisfied. Ho was then
borne to Arnhcim, where the princi
pal surgeons were stationed. Hopes
were entertained of his recovery for
some days, but as they were nimble
to extract the ball, and 11101 tification
ensued, he picpnred to meet death
with a resignation, piely and forti
tude that corresponded to his past
life, and he expired in tlio arms of
Ins brother-in-law, Col. John Braith
waitc, on the 17th day of October,
1580, in the thirty-second year of
his age. The United Provinces
wished to have the care ot his inter
ment, but this was declined by
Queen Elizabeth, by whose orders
his body was embarked for England
by Gen. McNaughton with the mili
tary honors of the time. It was re
ceived at the Tower of London in
the same manner; and, after lying
in slate for some days, was solemnly
interred in old St. Paul's. Extract
from "British Battles on Laud and
THE PANAMA CANAL.
According to Senor Santiago Tor
rico of the Peruvian Navy, who for
four and a half years previous to
last February was in charge of the
u6rciVici j en mandats de
pnicmeiit" of the Panama Canal
Company, the company is conduct
ed in much the same manner as was
the New York Board of Aldermen
in 188-1. "Boodle is what every
employee looks for and wha the gen
eiajly gets," so Senor Tcrrieo says,
"and putvonal gain is the ruling
motive of every man, no matter how
low his position, who is in the em
ploy of the eompairy at Panama."
Senor Toriico fuithcr says: "Un
less a dilfcient sol of men tnkc hold
of the works the Panama Canal will
never be completed. The manner
in which these gentlemen live is
simply princely. Gorgeously fur
nished houses, horses, carriages and
palace cars arc what are considered
to be" essentially necessary to the
company's chiefs in order that they
may carry on the woik to a success
ful close, and the company's money
pays the bill. One man, 'who dealt
in furniture, etc., made in two
years Sf)00,000 out of the job, and
that is a sample of Ihe corruption
existing in the lanks."
Do amateur mechanics make skil
ful workmen? A machinist in the
Mediuniad Engineer thinks they
do not. He says a failing common
to all amateurs or non-professional
woikers is loo great haste. It mat
ters not whether they are amateur
machinists, or carvers, or painters,
or amateurs in any handicraft, the
same weakness affects them all.
The amateur wishes to see how his
work will look when it is done, and
he slights the preliminary process
and hastens to the final one, with
the result of making a botch of the
business in hand. The work slipws
to the practical eye that it has been
done hastily (carelessly is a better
word), and it is inferior for that
reason. Tho amateur himself sees
it, and after a time, after the first
joy of completion is over, lie hates
the sight of his hurried job, and
very often destroys it out of hand.
The better way would have been to
stifle all impulses to get the work
finished before it was- fairly entered
upon, and go through the process
which all work must go through be
fore it can be properly completed.
If I were asked what were the
most necessary qualifications for a
successful amateur I would say
patience and perseverance. Barely
do amateurs make good workmen,
and it is most frequently for want of
