HOW ABOUT THE LOAN?
How about the lo:m? This is u
question with which we arc pestered
every day of our life, both during
oillce hours ami on the public
streets. The answer, that we arc
not in the confidence of the Govern
ment, and therefore not the reposi
tory of their secrets, seems unsatis
factory ; for tlte same people come
back, day after day, with the same
question. Of course, we have, and
always have had, our own opinions
touching the question, although not
always in the humor to give expres
sion to them, to gratify the curiosity
of every curious inquirer. To-day,
however, we arc in the mood to
talk a little upon the subject.
In the first place, we have never
entertained that horror of borrowing
money for public purposes which
haunts some men. The views of
this paper on the matter were un
ambiguously presented at the time
that the loan bill was under discus
sion in the Legislature. We have
held that moderate borrowing, in a
new and undeveloped country, for
reproductive public works, is justi
fiable and wise. Furthermore, that
two millions, or even four millions
of dollars might be wisely borrowed
by this country, and expended on
objects and in a way that would be
for the general advancement, and
that would pay interest on the bor
rowed capital very soon after its
disbursement. Moreover, this is
an opinion formed after a good
many years' residence, and a longer,
if not better, acquaintance witii the
country and its possibilities, than
most local newspaper writers. As
to the undeveloped resouices of the
country being such as to warrant
the borrowing of the amount or
amounts named, to be expended on
works of a nature tha would con
tribute to the development of those
resources, is not a matter of doubt
in our mind. To be sure, wc have
not the same confident conviction
that the money would be judiciously
expended, and placed to tho best
advantage. Here we have grave
Regarding the question of borrow
ing in England, we scarcely think it
was necessrry to go so far. "With
stable governmental arrangements,
tvo million dollars, or the major
portion thereof, might havo been
raised among our own people, right
here in Honolulu, on terms at least
equally advantageous. So say local
capitalists, and we believe them.
In that case, oiganizing the govern
ment in satisfactory shapo should
have been the first operation, and
then uppealjng to the people for the
means to carry qut the undertakings
deemed necessary for the develop
ment of the country. A national
debt owing to the people of thu na
tion is always preferable to a national
debt payable to a foreign country,
especially if the borrowing nation
be small and weak. Every English
man understands this very clearly,
and the reasons are so obvious that
every Hawaiian should he able to
comprehend it, loo.
Although believing that the Ha
waiian Government is justified in
borrowing, that all the money need
ed could have been borrowed at
Jipiae, anil that it would have been
wise to havo contraulcd tho debt, nt
homo in preference to going nbroad,
we cannot perceive, that raising a
loan in England, or Germany, or
Trance, or any other country, isgoing
lo jeopardize our treaty relations
with the United States of America.
In our humble opinion, a large
amount of stupid nonsense has been
talked on this phase of the question
by intelligent men. So far from
our contracting a loan in England
inducing the United Slates to abro
gate the reciprocity treaty, it is
more likely to have precisely the
opposite effect. Certainly the Presi
dent of that great Hepuhlic was. "not
ignorant of our intention when ho
penned his message to Congress, two
or three weeks ago, and yet ho
strongly recommended the continu
ance of the treaty. Indeed, we are
not without suspicion that the fact
of Hawaii going to London for a
loan had some inlluencc in inducing
that recommendation. The real
reasons that induced the Statesmen
at Washington to grant the treaty
in the first instance were political
and not commercial, and similar
reasons will probably prevail in its
continuance. It is the interest,
and undoubtedly the policy, of the
United States to sustain the paia
mouul itithicncc which she has ac
quired here, and in the event of our
inability to maintain independence,
to annex the islands. Is it likely
that any step taken by this govern
ment calculated to strengthen the
hold of any oilier nation will induce
her to relax her grasp, which abro
gation of the treaty means? Not at
all. Just exactly the contrary.
Now, as to the prospects of the
loan being raised in, London, we can
say hut nine to sci at ease tne curi
osity of tlioc who beset us with the
question. The chances were un
doubtedly favorable at one time.
Whether they have continued so is
problematical. If negotiations had
not attained a stage from which
there was no recession, when the
exaggerated statements of the San
Francisco papers reached London,
these probably operated as a serious
check, possibly as a death blow.
This opinion is based on the assump
tion that the loan was to be placed
on the open market, and formed
with some knowledge of how sus
ceptible the London people are to
newspaper statements. If, however,
it was the intention of two or
three capitalists to take up the loan
themselves, not putting it in the
open market, the premises are differ
ent and also the conclusion. These,
of course, are mere speculations,
which a short lime will show to be
right or wrong. In the meanwhile,
we wait with patience, and admonish
those who question us as though we
knew all about it, to do likewise.
INDOLENCE OF THE POLICE.
The tampering with the door locks
of the Temple of Fashion, reported in
another column, suggests reflections
on the police. If the occurrence
had taken place in the suburbs,
where police olllceis are few and far
between, and cannot he reasonably
expected to be otherwise as long as
'the heads of the department are
without the means to increase the
nuniner, it woum nave been a very
different matter. Hut this was an
attempt at burglary, or an act of
malicious mischief, committed right
in the heart of the city, where
a policeman or policemen are sup
posed to be on watch all hours of
the day and night, and, moreover,
in a locality moderately well lighted.
It is hardly probable that a burglar
would have essayed nn entrance
through the front doors of the Tem
ple of Fashion, or a miscreant have
attempted mischief with the locks,
undetected, if the policeman on
watch had been aleit in attention to
his duty. Tho fact is, which every
body knows, our police are too fond
of ease and too averso to exertion
for the proper discharge of the
duties of their position. This sleepy,
free-and-easy method of fullilling
their functions may have been
adapted to bygone times, when
thieves are said to havo been un
known and everybody was honest.
Those days are past, and tho com
munity now has a full proportion of
persons that need watching, A
sleeping or sitting policeman is not
the description of olllccr precisely
adapted to our present condition iftid
requirements. What wo want is
policemen constantly moving on
their beats, with their eyes and ears
wide open. Is it too much to hope
for reform in this direction? Wc
nre not disposed to be unnecessarily
hard or scrupulously exacting ; but
really, we think this is a matter in
lvhich amendment is needed, is possi
ble, may bo effected immediately,
and it is reasonable to ask for it.
Tho readers of history and travel
have ever been indebted to nil, for
much of the interest that gathers
around past events and distant
scenes. Much of human life that
excites attention and that strikes a
sympathetic chord in every intelli
gent mind, would pass into obli
vion, and, be buried out of sight
forever, if it weie not arrested by
thu painter or sculptor, and re-produced

Tho great Hawaiian volcano, with
its llcry caldron of burning lava was
a prime natural object of cuiiosity
the world over, drawing lo our
shores thousands of tourists, who
carried away with them, not only
vivid impressions of the volcanic ex
hibition, but also kindly recollec
tions of the climate, the society and
the institutions of the country, so

It was a fortunate circumstance
that an able artist spent the summer
of 1885 about the Volcano, taking in
the grand scene and transferring to
canvas what persons who, have
viewed the original, pronounce a
very good representation of llale
lntiuniau, the New Lake, the Little
Beggar, the precipitous cliffs, the
hissing, rolling, and dashing sul
phurous lires, and all the other
manifestations of agitated, enraged
nature in the wild abyss of Kilauca.
Mr. Furncaux and those who as
sisted him, havo rendered a valu
able service to art and science, as
well as to the kingdom, in getting
up the panoramic view now on ex
hibition in the city. And if tho ex
hibition proves to be a good thing
financially, the public who contri
bute to it will only be too glad to
know that the artist lives an a better
age than in those times when lone
garrets and straw beds were the
personal comforts, and want and
semi-beggary the rewards of genius.

This morning as usual I came
down to my place of business, and
in trying to open my doors, I found
that the keys would not act upon the
lock. On examination I could sec
something in the keyhole which I
extracted. It pioved to be a blade
of a knife. This was on the munl:a
door. Trying tho makai door, I
found two broken blades in the key
hole. I have reason to believe this
to be a clear proof of an attempt to
force an entrance to the store. The
broken blades showed every indica
tion that the parties tried hard to
get inside. The locks of the store
doors in the"CanipbcllBIock," evi
dently, cannot be picked with a
I reported the case at the Station
House, where I was told that a num
ber of the police are sick, and last
night that part of tlic town (the
heart of the city) was probably left
without proper protection, which is
a decided wrong, as well as careless
ness on the part of the Government
ollicers whose duty it is to protect
the business portion of the city.
There should be enough policemen
for reasonable protection. In this
case, sickness of a number of police
men is no excuse at all. It shows
that a refpnn is badly needed in
tlic police force, and every tax
payer has a perfect right to demand
"from this Government that the
streets be protected with suillcicnt
police ollicers ; and furthermore, that
cveiy policeman on duty especially
at nights, should try to do what he
gets paid for, and not be allowed to
take a rest at tho corners and dream.
1 do not write this simply to com
plain, but I feel it my duty to do so,
and I hope that the Marshal of tho
Kingdom will at once look into this
matter. How dangerous it is to al
low the streets in the principal busi
ness portion of the town to be with
out proper protection. Our police
force needs reform, and it cannot be
commenced too soon. Thanking you
for the space, Yours,
