. NAMES AND NUMBERS.
Errors are frequently made in this
city in directing a servant to deliver
a parcel or letter at another person's
house. In many eases it arises from
want of local knowledge, but not
uufrequently from being unable to
locate an individual's residence, the
house having no number, and the
street, no name. After a lengthened
residence in this cit', it was only a
few days ago that the writer ascer
tained the name of the road leading
off Beretania street betwixt the
residences of Drs. McKibbin and
Brodie. It is called Miller toad by
some, after General Miller, who re
sided for many years in the present
McKibbin homestead. By the natives
it is known by another name entirely
The extension of that same road,
beyond Punchbowl street, and into
Kinau street, is, as far as can be
learnt from the authorities, nameless.
Karaaaina's have a name for it how
ever, which has not yet been regis
tered in the Interior Department.
It is known amongst a select few as
Lovers' lane, or Soiled-Dove Alley,
appropriate no doubt, but rather
A few years ago, the street names
were prominently painted on the
principal streets about town, and
the homes and shops were numbered,
but the work was left in an unGnished
state, and it remains so the this day.
To find a special house in old Kiki
hale, before the fire, by direction,
was as dilllcult a task as bunting for
a needle In a haystack. It is possi
ble that the difllculty can be ob
viated by numbering every house
where there is actually no street. Old
Kikihale reminded ono of a maze,
which was easy to enter, but almost
impossible to get out of. But it is
of localties where foreigners reside
to which we particularly wish to
refer. Turning to the left off Nuti
auu street immediately after passing
the Firht Biidge, or more correctly
termed, the l'eletila Biidge, is a lane
in which a large number of foreigners
leside, known as Ford's lane and
ulso as Viueyaid lane. Which is cor
rect? Again take the district beyond
Kainiku Bridge (Smith's Bridge).
It is becoming thickly populated,
but to direct a person unknown to
the locality, to the house of Mr.
Fagerroos or Mrs. Duohnleky, would
be'next to impossible. Ah the city
spreads, which it is mpidly doing in
all' directions, the task will become
more diUTctilt. Without disparaging
the work done hy the Interior De
partment, it is u part of the work
that would devolve upon a munici
pality, should such u body ever
cxtatiu Honolulu. In the district
of Apua, inuktii of the Aliiolani
Jlale and other Hinular districts
about tuun, the houses aio not
numbered, and special houses can-
oot be found by the uninitiated. The
iwyjjd was not made in a day, and it
cannot be expected that a financially
cmbarrasml government can carry
out all the desirable wotks at once,
but our simple "suggestions" might

HAWAII FOR HAWAIIANS,
Thin is a subject which has ovoked
considerable- discussion of late. The
people of the country ought cer
tainly to bo those most capablo of
appreciating tho great responsibili
ties connected with tho management
of all the concerns of tin nation, ns
their interests, individual, social
and moral aio supposed to be iden
tified with the development of the
country on those lines. This is one
of the principles underlying the
public school systems of the United
States, Germany and Great Britain
as well as Hawaii. In order that a
citizen of any country can profit
ably occupy a place in the indus
trial, mechanical, professional or
political sphere, he requires to be
supplied with n stock of that
" knowledge " which " is power."
And not only is knowledge power,
but it is essential to promotion in
every department of industrial and
commercial life. That it is equally
indispensable to a place in the poli
tical system depends partly upon
the character of the government,
but most largely upon the intelli
gence of the people. An intelligent
constituency is not likely to elect a
boor or an ignoramus as a legisla
tive representative or to any place
of trust. An intelligent voter wants
an intelligent person to whom he
may entrust his interests as a
citizen. In the same manner, a
government, desiring the permanent
welfare of the country, seeks out lit
and proper persons for the dis
charge of public duties. As regards
the proprietors of the commercial
and industrial departments of the
commonwealth, they may generally
be trusted to consult their own in
terests by securing the best labor,
the most skilled mechanics, and the
ablest clerks they can find for what
ever thej' may be engaged in. No
mercantile or industrial establish
ment has ever been known to pursue
the suicidal course of accepting the
services, or having accepted them,
of advancing to higher responsibili
ties a mechanic who is a botch or a
clerk who proves himself incompe
tent. Promotion is in the line of
merit in business circles. The em
ployee who develops capacities for
business is promoted, while the
botch workman is either dismissed
or set to more menial duties. A
business house that would follow
the rule of dismissing or degrading
employees for performing their
duties with credit to themselves,
and profit to their employers, and
advancing bunglers to higher places
of trust, would be a very short lived
It is one of the standing abuses
in the politics of Hawaii as well as
other, countries that the principles
which no business establishment
could survive, actually govern ap
pointments and promotions in the
civil service. Persons are invested
with a little brief authoritj' whose
notorious incompetency would seem
to be their only recommendation.
If Hawaii is to be for the Hawaiians,
this state of affairs must undergo
a radical reform. In Great Britain,
entrance to the civil service is gen
erally well-guarded by competitive
examinations in general scholarship
and on specific points of informa
tion relative to the duties of the
office sought. Civil seivice reform,
too, is rapidly becoming a live
question in the United States, and
the doctrine, " To the victors belong
the spoils," has bad its day, and
will before many years, be quoted
by Fourth of July orators in tho
same category of antiquated ideas
with the burning of witches at
Salem. The sooner it becomes an
issue in Hawaiian politics, the
better for all concerned, for no
where is reform in this direction
more urgently needed.
With respect to the industrial
phase of the subject, whether "Ha
waii for the Hawaiians" will ever
be a i'ealled truism or will fade
into the shadowy mazes of a dream,
depends entiiely upon the people
thembclves, and that more in their
individual than in their collective
capacity. If they wish to own the
soil, they must set to and engage
in ogiicultural labor. If they aspire
to mechanical btipremucy, there is
but ono way to accomplish their
purpose, leant trades and qualify
theuiBclvc3 for executing every
variety of mechanical handicraft.
For business, the public schools
supply them with the elementary
materials. And when industrial
education is joined to the public
bchool system, thu juveniles of tho
country will bo able to pass at least
through the initiatoiy degress in
mechanical as well as commercial
man eiiiji am Jlfl JUiiilOIMflLIMIlf.
' Hawaii for the llnwnllnns "
means vastly mote than holding
government olllcos, nnd wearing
helmets, cockades, bells and gold
lace. It means, lands, houses,
dlilps, stores and machinery. When
ever a majority of tho stock in all
these can be written opposite tho
names of Hnwaiians, the phrase nt
tho head of this article will have
become a reality instead of being,
as at present, little more than a
shadow, which unfortunately too
many of the people are pursuing
instead of making honest efforts to
grasp the substance.
The efllcicncy and promptness of
the Honolulu fire brigade are well
known. The firemen need no puf
fing. But there are certain equip
ments and improvements in the out
fit that require to be provided. It
was very evident, Thursday night,
that there was a want of proper
tools with which to, gain access
through the iron doors of the Pacific
Navigation Co.'s building. Had the
hoscmeii been able at once to get
a nozzlo inside, on the third iloor,
the fire would doubtless have been
extinguished in a few minutes. And
this opinion is confirmed by an exam
ination of the ptcmiscs next morn
ing. Hitherto our firemen have been
accustomed to light fires in wooden
buildings, and a battle with the fire
fiend enclosed behind stone walls
and iron doots and shutters has been
of rate occurrence, if indeed it has
ever happened before. Consequently,
the equipmen t of tools is not up to "
the probable needs of the future.
As Chinatown is being rebuilt largely
with brick, stone and iron, and no
doubt some of these buildings may
call for the services of the fire
brigade, any day; it would only
seem reasonable that each company
should henceforth be fully provided
with a set of tools capablo of going
through an iron door instantaneously,
and also that a section of the men
should be specialised for wielding
Another improvement, the neces
sity for which was brought promi
nently into notice on the same occa
sion, is a spark arrester for every
engine, similar to that used on a
plantation locomotive. When Engine
No. i was commencing operations at
the Merchant and Nuuaiut street
corner, the sparks from the engine
flew far and wide over the roofs of
the buildings in the vicinity. Engines
Nos. 1 and 2 also, on the dock, were
sources of considciable anxiety to
the sailors on board the bark J. II.
Bower, lying hard by. 'Hie men
on the bark were kept constantly on
the alert watching the engine sparks
flying over the deck and rigging.
The authorities of the Fire Depart
ment are doubtless ready and will
ing, to the utmost of their ability
and the means nt their disposal, to
adopt every improvement known for
perfecting the service, and it is
hoped that these suggestions may
meet their favorable consideration.
THE BATTALION DRILL.
The military companies turned
out in good force last evening, to
participate in the battalion drill.
The several companies were prompt
in assembling at Palace Square, nnd
the drill begun without an' unneces
sary delaj'. The marching and
battalion movements were creditably
pei formed. The Hawaiian Band
was in attendance and played during
the drill. When parade was form
ed, the adjutant gave orders for the
military, in undress uniform, to
attend Kaumakapili Church on Sun
day Dec. 2Gth, at 9 a. m. On dis
missal of parade tho battalion, bend
ed by the band, marched to Queen
street armory, where a hollow square
was formed, and His Majesty's
satisfaction with the evening's drill
announced by the captain of the
Household Guards. The companies
then separated, the Rifles marching
up Fort street to Hotel street, and
on the invitation of Captain V. V.
A sh ford, filed into the Elite ice
cream saloon, and regaled themselves
with ice-cream. The Rilles, on re
suming match sang popular songs,
and ou reaching their armory gave
three cheers for their captain. The
battalion drill, as a whole, was satis

crowd of spectators witnessed tho
