THEY DON'T LIKE OUR PASSPORT.
Our passport system is adversely
criticised in San Francisco papers
received by the Australia yesterday.
Private letters by the same mail
bring the information that people
there regard with disfavor tho fact
that a person cannot enter this coun
try without paj'ing an admission fee,
nor leave it w ithout a passport, for
which he also has to pay a fee.
This fact is said to militate against
travel to this country, and may be
urged as one of the various reasons
for the abolition of tho system. It
cannot bo truly' said that the Hos
pital tax collectable from a person
before he is permitted to land,
is particularly burdensome; nor
that the legal requirement to pro
cure and pay for a passport by a
person who has been in the country
more than a month, before he can
leave it, is any serious trouble to hon
est people. But the actual operation
of the law is a matter which people
abioad are not likely to be familiar
with, nor concern themselves to
learn. The bald fact that the Ha
waiian Kingdom has a passport sys
tem comes to their knowledge more
easily, and it impresses them unfa
vorably. An American or an En
glishman does not like a passport,
lie does not believe in such a docu
ment. It is something which he is
not accustomed to. He considers it
a remnant of despotism to be ex
cluded from the polity of a freo
country. And we think the sooner
the suppoi tera of the passport sys
tem in this country adopt the same
view, the better it will be for the
country. Efforts arc being made
by our own people to induce tourist
travel in this direction, and as long
as tho passport law remains on the
statute books they will find it an
obstacle to success.
The retail price of coal in New
York has been higher in tho last two
months than at any previous period
in twelve j'ears. If tho strikes in
tho mines and on the Readijig Rail
road are maintained, prices will still
go up. One of tho largestdealers
said to-day the continuance of the
present difllculty for thirty days will
justify the dealers in demanding 88,
as much as tho situation now war
rants. Tho present asking price is
SC.25. It is estimated the dealers
in town have coal enough on hand
to last three weeks. There is littlo
HOW QUARANTINE IS KEPT.
Editoii Bulletin: In case your
readers up town do not know how
quarantine is kept down toion I will
give you n, few facts from n personal
experience and illumine their lay
The Australia comes into port,
and after consultation is allowed to
come alongside the O. S. S. Co.'s
wharf. Almost immediately gentle
men connected with the agents'
OV. G. I. & Co.), oHioc coon board,
mingle with tho passengers, chat,
have n talk on the veto, etc., nil, of
course in a business way, then the
President of the Board of Health
goes onboard, accompanied bj' some
of his satellites, mingles freely,
comes off and goes uptown. Pre
sently, a Custom House ofllccr goes
on board, does exactly the same
thing as before mentioned. Again
the President of tho Board of Health
is back and on board again, giving
some new orders, comes off, and is
approached by a man who wants a
job as guai d. He is asked in terri
ble tones, how he ever came to get
insido the sacred portals of this
quarantine ground, and in answer to
this question he is immediately or
dered off the premises, so as to re
duce if possible, the danger of in
fection, and so it goes on all day.
There is constant intercourse be
tween the people on board and those
On she wharf, and the latter eventu
ally will go uptown and mingle with
their fellow men. Now, Mr. Editor,
if this is quarantine what isn't?
Is the President of the Board of
Health or any one with his written
permission, proof against smallpox,
or of carrying its infection? if the
Board of Health is going to have a
quarantine, let's have it in toto or
make no attempt at such a farce as
is at present being perpetrated on
a confiding public. Yours, II.
Honolulu, Feb. 8.
A QUERY ABOUT WATER
Mn. Editok: The law regulat
ing the Government water supply
passed in 188C imposes a penalty
( ?) of ten per cent, in addition to
the rate, if such late remain unpaid
15 days after it became due.
Now the same law requires appli
cations for privileges on a printed
form supplied by the Minister of
Interior to be signed by the appli
cant, this form to contain a state
ment of the terms and conditions
upon which water may be used.
"The Superintendent of water
works shall, at least ten days before
such water rates shall be payable
notify i all persons then holding
water privileges, as aforesaid by ad
vertisement in one or more news
papers published in the English and
Hawaiian languages, that such rates
aio payable on the 1st days of Janu
ary or July as the case may be, next
following such notice." (Italics
It cannot be said that persons
already holding piivilegcs prior to
the law of 188G are going to know
"the terms and conditions upon
which water may be used," particu
larly as they signed no written ap
plication therefor. It seems to me
that the Superintendent's notifica
tion by advcitisement is notice only
to those who had made written ap
plications for piivilegcs, and thus
became acquainted with the "terms
Query. By the statute of 188G,
is the Superintendent of waterworks
required to notify all holders of
water privileges of the time of pay
ing rates in the absence of mles
regulating the same which said sta
tute authorizes the Minister of In
terior to make?

New York, Jan. 10 In a talk
with the Paris correspondent of the
"Woild" DcLesseps says: "I shall
am over to Panama toward the be
ginning of March, and may tell you,
as a bit of news, that I will take
Engineer Eiffel with me. Wo have
just drawn up a contract with Eiffel
& Son to construct a huge lock with
iron gates at the foot of the Cule
bra, to be fed with the water of the
Chagres river there, and it is by the
construction of this basin or lock
that the canal will be open for
traffic. Eiffel, you know, is the
man who is consti noting that huge
iron tower on thoExhibition grounds.
They have been making lots of fun
of Eiffel's Tower of Babel, as they
call it, but all the same it will have
excellent practical use for ntmos
pheric and astronomical observa
tions." Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 1G Satur

o'clock this morning his condition
was so serious that for a .short time

hastily summoned, and under their
care he obtained relief. Pneumonia
is feared and should the disease
follow the chills the chance for Mr.
