THE HEW ROAD SUPcRVISOR.
"Wc try our best to think well of
the government under which we
live, nnil at times almost succeed in
deluding ourselves into tho belief
that the affairs of the nation are
regulated by men of brains and
ability; because it is very much
ngaint our 'rain to be constantly
scolding and finding fault, and
vastly more agreeable to write words
of commendation. It k, indeed.
But every now and then wc arc
suddenly confronted with some lidl
eulously stupid act, that for a time
completely dispels tho delusion, and
makes it extremely haul to be
' patient and bay soft words.
Tho latest occurrence of this kind
is the appointment of the new Ifoad
Supervisor. To us, having known
the now appointee for a series of
years, it is really surprising that the
Alinister of Interior a gentleman
whom wc have always considered in
the front rank of native talent and
shrewdness should have made the
appointment. Is the .Minister's
head losing its accustomed balance?
Mr. Alapai i ceitainly conspicuous
in his community lor certain pecu
liarities, butvnot for anv manifesta
tion of the essentials of an efilciont
I'oad Supervisor. His fi lends and
neighbors have never su-pected him
of posesing qualifications of that
particular nature. Tndeed, one of
them was so satisfied of the gentle
man's total inability to fulfil the
duties of the oflice, that he positively
declined to admit tiiat there was
any truth in the rumor, when it was
put in circulation last Saturday,
giving as his leason, .that the
Minister of Inteiior could not com
mit fetich a mistake. Now, if Mr.
I lart ould persist in his resignation
who, 13 the way, did about as well
as the means at his disposal and his
superiors would permit and it was
deemed impciativc, in pursuance of
the avowed policy of 'Hawaii for
ihc llawalians," to appoint a native
Hawaiian as his successor, it was no
hard' task to And, at short notice, a
dozen natives better qualified for
the oflice than tho one who has re
ceived the appointment.
This is our candid and conscien
tious opinion. But would probably
not have expressed it, preferring
rather to have allowed the man to
bo judged by his works of at least a
few weeks in office, w ere it not for
information just received from a
ci edible source, respecting the now
incumbent's proceedings on the first
day of his term, yesterday. It is
pretty generally known that Liliha
street has been for some time past
in about llio worst condition of any
thoroughfare in this city; that a
definite bum of money was voted by
tho last Legislature to put, it in ic
pair; and that a squad of prisoners
have been leccntly at woik upon it,
throwing up oaith to allow necessary
drainage, and forming a foundation
for a covering of coral. Well, the
new Road Supervisor paid a visit to
the spot yesterday, and gave audi
ble expression to the opinion that
llio street is good enough for its
traffic, that Palama road should have
first attention, and that operations
on Liliha street should cease at
once. It may bo added, that tho
immediate effect on certain of tho
residents in that locality, wau aoud.

words, that could not have been the

Mr. Alapai. A very small percent

needed to detcctthc stupidity of leav.

AN EXCHANGE SUGGESTED.
Since the foregoing m tide was
written, the thought suggests Itself,
that if it bo deemed necessary in
official circles that Mr. Alapai should
hold sonic position under Ciovern
nient, perhaps it would be a sensible
niranceiucnt tn make him Station
Houc Keeper, in place of Mr. Keati,
and appoint the last named gentle
man Road Supei visor. Tho duties
of the Station House Keeper,
although responsible and important,
ate not so difficult as those of the
Road Supervisor. Air. Keau 'is a
man of energy and some practical
common sense, and would be more
in his proper sphere looking after
the roads, than in trying to keep
himself awake during tho dreary
hours of his present vocation. lie
would have some scope for his
activity on the roads, and wc ically
believe he would acquit himself
creditably in that position. lie
certainly would not abandon Liliha
afreet until ho had made it passable;
neither would he be disposed to
neglect entirely the less prominent
thoioughfares. that hilhcito have
received scant attention. "We have
but little hope that any coiisidoialion
will be given to our suggestion, but
nevertheless wo would most respect
fully intimate that the Minister of
Interior might do worse.
MR. MORENO'S OPEN LETTER.
Yesterday's Guxctte refers to "an
open letter" from Mr. C. C.Moreno,
several copies of which reached
Honolulu by the last mail steamer
from San Francisco, and character
ises the document as "so abusive
that it defeats its own object." No
moderate man who has read tho
letter will dissent from this conclu
sion. The epithets arc numcious,
forcible, and .sown broadcast. "We
have nothing to say in defence of
the document. Hut the concluding
remark of the Gazelle, which says
that "the same facts put forwaul
calmly and dispassionately would be
most damaging to our ( iovcrnment ,"
imitcs a few woids. Although the
tone of the letter is certainly damag
ing to its own object, with thought
ful people, yet it is ically and abso
lutely doing this country consider
able damage at Washington. A
private letter from a piominent gen
tleman at the American capital,
which asserts "Mr. Moreno is doing
incalculable mischief here to your
country," confirms tlii-t belief. Mr.
Moreno has indoublcdly, at different
times and on various occasions, wi it
ten and spoken a largo amount of
misrepresentation relative to this
country and its people; and the
press and people of this counliy
have been equally prolific in baseless
absuidities regaiding Mr. Moreno.
Those who put him down as a mere
wild adventurer, possessed of a wide
expanse of cheek, but destitute of
brains, learning, and ability, niis
nieasure the man. Of the facial
development he has a full share, but
of the latter ingredients lie has also
mote than is ordinarily allotted to
man. To say that ho has no in
fluence at Washington, and that his
words pass for nothing there, is a
mistake. It is better to accept the
truth, whether it be agreeable or
olhciwise, than to delude ourselves
with an erroneous faith, in a matter
of this kind. By ignoring danger a
man may lose his life, when a little
intelligent precaution would have
THE TEMPERANCE CAMPAIGN.
LAST KVKNINCl'S .MIXTISO,

China, presided at tho meeting, last
evening, in tho Y. M. C. A. hall.
Tho vocal and instrumental niusio

J. II. Atherton and S. 1). Fuller

A brilliant speech was delivered by
Mr. Smith on tho "two lions," Ap
polito and Avaiieo, to be confronted
nnd ninz.led by every movement in
favor ot moral lefonn.
Mr. Uooth took up the question,
"who's to blame," and showed, in
(ho clear and impressive manner of
which ho is master, that "society"
is mostly to blamo for the evils of
intemperance. Eleven signatures
woro added to tho pledge roll. Tliis

SERMONS TO OBDEK.
John Quincy Adams and John
Hancock, "(lie Signer," inanied
two sisters, the daughters of a noted
Methodist diinc in Connecticut.
John Quincy was a favoiitc with the
old people, and Mary's choice wai
appiovcd by them. So when the
bans were published, the parents
said: "Mary, if .you willf furnish mo
the text I will preach you a wedding
sermon." Site was equal to the
task, and gave the text: "Mary
hath chosen the good pait, which
shall not be taken from her." Need
less to say that ju.itico was done to
tho occasion and the text. Not so
willi Margaret, who in the mean
while was icceiying tho attentions
of her John in a very inexpensive
way, as far as her parents were con
cerned, for it is .said that "ho never
crossed his legs under their festive
boaids.' So, when the bans were
published, she said to her father:
"Father, you preached a wedding
sermon for Mary, cannot you pi each
one for mo V" He at first demurred,
but at last consented, and called for
the text, when Margaret, who was
equal to the occasion, said: "And
John came, neither eating nor di ink
ing, and yet vo say ho hath a
devil." fN. Y (irap'hie.
