MONDAY, JAN. 9, 1888.
We agree with the "Gazette,"
that a system of food inspection is a
-want of Honolulu. This is one of
the directions in which modern gov
ernments in other countries have ad
vanced. It has come to he regarded
as a governmental duty to sec that
the people arc not supplied with un
wholesome food. Competent analy
tical chemists arc employed to watch
closely the public food supply, and
to prevent impute articles being
placed or kept in the market. Hono
lulu should have a public olllcer for
the same purpose. Such an olllcer
is needed, and we have no doubt the
respectable tradesman of the town,
as well as the consumer, would hail
an appointment of this character
ENDORSED WITH PLEASURE.
"J. A. M."-writing from Uilo to
the Hawaiian Gazette, speaks in
highly complimentary terms of the
conduct in the Legislature, of one of
the Hilo Nobles, Mr. Henry S.
Townscnd; "he did his duty faith
fully, conscientiously." It affords
us pleasure to add our endorsement

our views ; for, as a
fact, he did not. On scv-
. questions we were "not in ac
cord." But we do not quarrel with
a man, or call him hard names, be
cause his opinions may differ from
our own. Mr. Townsend's course
in the House was honorable and
conscientious. He always spoke
and voted according to his convict
ions. Moreover, he was ono of the
most industrious members of the
House. All work entrusted to him
was attended to thoroughly and
promptly: he always sacrificed per
sonal ease to duty. His speech on
the veto question was probably the
ablest effort in that line of the Ex
WILL IT BE DONE.
Editor Buixetix : There is in
this city an institution unsurpassed
for location, munificently endowed,
always well filled with pupils, and
bears a world-wide reputation ; its
graduates have filled high positions
here as well as elsewhere ; and to
have been educated at Punahou,
has been the boast of many who
have attained the highest rung in
the ladder of learning, but for many
years there has been a lack of un
animity between the trustees and
superintendents. Why this is so is
a problem, but the tact remains,
and I think the elucidation can be
found in the sectarian plan of con
ducting the institution. It has been
the custom heretofore to "import"
the staff of teachers, the superin
tendent included. I think I can
safely say this has not proved a
success. Why should this continue?
We have in this city quite a number
of qualified men, who might be in
duced to undertake the management
of this college, ninong whom I am
proud te name Prof. M. M. Scott.
He is well known, and nothing I
could say would add to the estima
tion in which ho is held by this com
munity. His school leads all others,
and is over-crowded with the
scholars, whose parents have had
enough of some of the much vaunted
schools, and have taken their chil
dren from thero and placed them
with Prof. Scott. But tho simple
act of placing Mr. Scott in charge
of Ptiiiuhoti would not of itself be
sufficient. Ho should have full and
entire charge of the college and its
curriculum, and it must bo non
sectarian. He will effect such a
change for the better that before
many months shall have elapsed
tho universnl verdict will be, "Well
done, good and faithful servant."
This can be brought about, is feasi
ble and desirable; will it be dono?
Editor Bulletin j I have been
quite interested, as every sound
thinking person must be, in reading
- the different articles published in
,our worthy paper by Mr. Marques'
earless pen. It eecum that the War
cry taUpcI all ovQvJtho United States
of America: "The Chinamen must
go" has rc-eehocd in these islands,
and if you will allow my voice in the
chorus, I will present a few con
siderations on the subject.
Let us first examine what Hawaii
can win or lose from a moral and
financial standpoint, by the influx
of Asiatics. And secondly what is
tho remedy for tho situation.
It is a well known fact that a
Christian country can nothing but
lose by the presence in her bosom
of heathens, who without mention
ing their lesser faults, as gambling,
opium smoking, lying, cheating, and
robbing, are addicted to the grossest
of immortalities, yes even to mur
der 1 In fact, don't the Chinese, In
their country, when they have too
many offsprings, throw them by
hundreds to pigs or rivers?
Wo arc too prone to forget that
in the Flowery Kingdom, according
to the most relinblc statistics, more
than 100,000 Christians were for
conscience's sake, massacred in less
thaulOycais. 1 ask kind heaitul
people, can we permit, can we suf
fer those morals, those crimes to be
planted in the Hawaiian soil? Can
wc sec with indifference flourish
opium dens and secret societies
where the initialed enn with impun
ity conspiic against kings and na
tions, kanaka and fatuiuai? (foreign
devil) No, wc cannot 1 it is im
possible! As for conspiracy, no
body can deny, the possibility of the
fact, when he thinks that according
to the last census the male Chinese
numbered 17,008 against 21,r01
native males iueluding children.
Now considering that the former are
steadily increasing, while the latter
arc decreasing rapidly we can
safely state that the Chinese out
number at present the native males.
When one considers these figures, is
it not high time to put up a dam
against the overwhelming flow?
Society is in danger.
But let us now consider, if the
Chinese are such a boon to the
country as to counterbalance so
great an evil. It would bo a curious
census, to make up the number of
Chinese working on the plantations,
and I dare say that not one half of
those swarming celestials are con
tract field laborers. But will one

orange mlf a (loz(m bottles of
so',ia water, waiting patiently till
they can open a more substantial
store, and make competition to
honest trade. Others, and there
arc the most manly among them,
those who do not shun work,
rush as soon as they have earned a
few dollars to the poor kanaka, who
cannot resist the temptation of a
few bright Kalakauas, lease or buy
his taro patches, and the native
from proprietor turns out a laborer,
depending for the support of his
family on a salary, having nothing
to fall back on in rainy days, and
his hard earned money he has to
spend for pai-ai with the very same
Pake who controls his land.
But what becomes of all the
money they heap up? It all goes to
China. The gold imported at great
cxDcnsc is sent home by John, who
lives on a starvation diet in order to
accumulate coin enough to return as
soon as possible to his llowery coun
try, (very often leaving behind him
a poor kanaka wife and children),
lie is the leech, sucking Hawaii's
best blood. In fact, suppose that
there are 20,000 Chinese in the
country, and that the average man
sends or takes home 25 a year, and
this is far from being over-cbtiniatcd,
and we reach the enormons sum of
500,000. Can Hawaii stand such
a drain? No! It is high time to
look seriously into the matter. The
only remedy to this ruinous situa
tion is the stopping of all Asiatic
immigration. The welfare of Ha
waii is at stake. Phii.o-H.vwau.
The Governor question has pre
sented itselt in a very pointed as
pect in Hilo this week. Mr. J. P.
Sisson, Tax-Collector for Kohala,
came by the Kiuau to deliver up his
books, etc. to the Governor. He
had no difficulty in finding Judge
Lyman, who has acted as Govern
or's Clerk for several years past ;
but ho refused to take charge of tho
books saying that he is not aware
of such an olllcer as Governor of
Hawaii. Just how this matter will
be adjusted remains to be seen ; but
we feel no uneasiness about our
ability to pull through somehow,
should it be decided that we have
no longer a Governess.
The wood which came down the
Wailuku during tho late freshets has
been piled up along' the shore. The
whole beach looks like a cold
By the way, Uilo people are talk
ing about their little rainfall during
tho last year. They say that it was
only fourteen feet. ' As to inches of
rainfall, they are beneath the notice
of a Hiloite. A story is told of an
Englishman of the "oil well aristo
cracy" type, who took his son to
Paris to get him polished up for
society. While there he instructed
his banker to let tho boy have all
the money he wanted. Being in
Paris again a few months later, he
asked the banker casually how
much money the boy had drawn.
"Only about twenty-thousand," was
tho " banker's careless answer.
"Twenty-thousand pounds!" ex
claimed the-astonibhed father. "O,
no," replied the banker, "twenty
thousand francs." "O, -those little
things," said the relieved7 uristocrut.
'Let him have as many of them as
he wants. " It is somewhat so about
inches of rain fall in Hilo. H any
one wants them, the people hero
just say, "Let him have all of those
little things thnt ho wants." They
talk about feet.
Weather is fine now, and every
thing looks beautiful. The tops 'of
the mountains show rather an un
usual amount of snow.
TALES OF GENERAL FORREST.

THU COSFEDKHATi: CAVAI.UY
Tho following interesting Incidents
in the army life Of General Bedford
Forrest were written by an eye-witness,
and now for Ihe first time pub
lished: In December, 18G2, General N.
B. Forest crossed the Tenesscc
river, and made a raid through
Tcncssee, which portion of tho state
was foi tilled in many places, all of
which were stiongly gnrrisoned.
While making against Jackson (to
enable the larger part of his brigade
to uninterruptedly capture tho small
stockades on the railroad), a staff
officer galloped up to the General
and exclaimed excitedly:
"General, Gcncial, the Yankees
aic coining up in your rear!"
Without :i moment's hesitation,
in the most indifferent manner im
aginable, Forest replied ;
"1 don't care
about face and I'll be in
While ciossing the
river (returning Irom
raid), his rear was strongly pressed
by the Federals. The ferry-boats
had to be pulled back and forth by
hand. The weather was terribly
cold and as the men hauled on the
wet lopes their hands would literally
freeze to them. Forest thought
those on the east side were working
too slowly and crossing over he im
mediately put every one to woik
officers as well as privates.
The Colonel who had been left in
command on the west side sent his
Scrgcuiil-Major across the river
with a message to Forest. The
Sergeant found the Gcnerpl '"Yu'lino
on a rope, alterant; ' onc0Urojring
and dai"1 ,
tt . "iiing every one near him.
Li Tan up to Forest and began:
"General, Colonel Wo"
"D l) Colonel whoever he is.
Ketch hold of this rope and help
pull the boat in."
"But General, Colonel"
'Don't talk to me. Help pull
this boat in or I'll throw you in the
river," shouted Forest.
"But General. I'm sent" began
the Sergeant, when Forest seized
him and with one twist of his mus
cular arm lifted tho messenger clear
off his feet, and stood him up in the
water waist deep.
The Sergeant, to save himself as
he went over seized Forest's coat
and pulled the General in with him.
Forest retained his hold of the Ser
geant and exclaiming "Spunky dog,
eh?" he soused him under the
water and held him there a few
seconds ; then lifting the Sergeant's
head above the water long enough
to catch his breath, he would shove
him under the water again, and
again bringing him up would ex
"Spunky dog, eh?"
After immersing the Sergeant
several times Forest helped him out,
when the latter, half-strangled and
coughing, tried to draw his pistol.
Forest gave him two or three slaps
on the back to help him expel the
water from his lungs, saying, at the
same time :
"You d little fool, don't you
know your pistol's wet and won't
fire?" Jacksonville, Fla., News

AN UNHAPPY PRINCESS.

tried by recent events that not only
her favorite bromide has ceased to
have nny effect, butn maid is forced
to sleep in a room adjoining that oc
cupied by Iter Royal .Highness.
Like all highly sensitive and very
deaf people, she often imagines ex
traordinary noises, and this pecu
liarity, which lias been a bore at
Sandrlncham, has now, doubtless
'owing to the sleepless nights passed
hy the bedside of the roj'al measly

her suiroundiugs. Her Koyal High
ness' great terror is of fire, and the
late catastrophe at Exeter, following
that of the Opera Comiquc in Paris,
so upset her that she vowed she
would never enter a theater again.
Her constant terror is that Prince
George, her pel. will be burned at
sea, and that wicked youth has on
more than one occasion taken ad
vantage of his mother's nervousness
in this particular to spin yarns
which would make tho fiest sea

timbers are uot cut away for water runs,
our limbers aie in the keel. We have
alo a holiel wldo iron plate on tlio keel
anil slums of the boat which lme bceur- '
ed for these boats their well deserved
reputation for supeilur build. The
model also compares favorably with
our best imported boat', carrying
tlieir width on the thwart, and
not on the gunwale as crank boats do,
ttklug all the chafe and pounding
against vessels anil whaif, when dis
charging. Our bent Oak knees also
carry out the reepilrements of the oldest
aud most experienced association known
who for 70 years have nnied neither
time nor money tu pi can.- the best surf
and life boats, wherever found. During
thu test of 1881, flexibility In boats, was
found to be mot essential. The rela Ion
thc-e knees bear to the jollities- -eetioti
timbers and to tho boat herself when se
verely (truck, to prevent a damaging
conuu"dnn or any damage, can be read
ily seen. This epiullty cannot be found
In boats stilly held in one place, anil
looe in another. Several naval Cap
tains aud Officers who have inspected
this system pronounce It a great im
provement over the old, as a pieventlve
from being stove in or bilged alongside
when being loweicd at sea, as many
have been known to do tho short lloors
and limber cuds lifting from the keel.
An other improvement, is that we sell
these boats for S0 less than was form
erly paid for this size boat here, and
it pays the builder and buyer better.

Wc are also prepaied to give plans

In the latter mode dates from 1854, when
the celebrated yachts ''Fox" and others
were built in that way, this vessel was
severely tiied in the Arctic for 3 years
under Sir J. McCHutock, when In
search of Sir John Franklin. This mode
of building is highly recommended
where Inside finish and capacity is an
object. We invite inspection of our
uoats at tne -Enterprise nailing Mill,
where samples may he found.
