WEDNESDAY, FEB. 15, 1888.
All sorts of people find their way
to a newspaper oflice, all sorts of
projects aie submitted for advocacy,
and all sorts of complaints arc en
tered for publication. Even in a
little place like Honolulu the vaiicty
and amount of matter, written and
spoken, which readies the news
paper oillccs is quite surprising.
Of course, much o.f it never gets into
type, l'erhaps the class of matter
which is most abundant is that which
comes under the head of "com
plaints. " A person has a grievance,
real or fancied. He longs t sec it
in print. It may be a very hilling
thing, and purely private in its
nature, and yet he thinks it ought to
be published. When told that it is
scarcely a proper subject for a news
paper, the complainant generally
feels himself badly treated. Qr the
grievance may be serious, and of a
character that a judicious journalist
would consider proper for publicity,
provided the evil cannot be easily
and quickly remedied by directly
appealing to its source. Still the
aggrieved party prefers making a
public complaint rather than a pii
vate representation, paiticularly if
his personality be concealed and the
newspaper assume the responsibility.
Now, it cannot bo denied that Hie
public press is a reformer of evils
and a preventer of wrongs in every
freo country. The fear of publica
tion prevents the perpetration in
many instances, and the fact of
publication leads to tho rpmoval in
many others. But, as a, general
rule, whore a wrong can bo recti
iled or an evil removed, without un
necessary delay, by direct icpre
scntation to those possessing tho
power and authority, it is premature
to appeal to tho press, Direct ap
peal having failed and the grievanco
remaining unredressed, it is un
doubtedly the duty of the press to
etcp into tho arena.
Ll'"rjg!"mUTn" " BW-
PROSPECTUS U F HONOLULU
A long fell want in this commun
ity lias been a cheap yet safe means
of illumination. A idly piinoipalh of
wood with n hijrh rale of insuva'ncp.
without gai, subieol to all the clan
jfern and honoi" of gasoline explo
sions and the hot uncleanly oil
lamp, would suppoit a good illiimiii
ant free from all Ihc disadvantages
and ilangeis of oil and gas, at a
price within theieach of every one.
To this end and for this purpose
the Honolulu Elcetiic Light Co. has
been formed, an independent body
of men able to carry out the enter
prise, owning no exclusive fran
chises nor monopolies, etc.. Al
most everyone is familiar with the
elcetiic light, and know its advan
tages which arc peculiarly applicable
to this climate.
There are two svstcms of electric
lighting in use, the Aie and tho In
candescent. Arc lights being too
powerful for indoor use, it is the in
candescent system wc shall deal with.
The Ifi-cantilc power lamp is the
btandard and the one ingciieial use.
Allestimatcsaic based on this lamp.
Unlike the aie light or stiect lamp
wire, the current of eleetiieity
used is of low potential and js not
any mote dangerous to handle than
your telephone wire. Where an alter
nating current is used or a high
force to carry electiicity a great
distance in order to save wire, a
tiaiibfonner or converter is used in
the attic or cellar which reduces the
current from a high to a low poten
tial. The incandescent lamp enjoys a
freedom from all tho objections of
gas and oil, such for instance as
ladiation of heat, vitiation of the
atmosphere, noxious odors, all un
cleanliness, and being more steady
than gas or oil, its color being so
bright, cheerful and steady enables
the detection of nice shades of color
as easy as by day ; it causes a holi
day appearance, its bright and gay
appearance adding greatly to the
attractiveness of stores, dwellings,
The lamp can be any color or the
brightness diminished, when it is de
siicd. Perhaps the simplest w:vy
would be to paint the glass globe
soaic dark color with artist's paint ;
very pretty and artistic effects are
secured iii this way. The glass
globe or lamp burns about one
thousand hours though they have
been known to last seven times as
Ioiik. Example: a lamp burns from
six to ten o'clock each evening
or four hours, tins lamp Miouiu
last about eight months. Or
dinarily the lamps will not have
to be removed only once anually,
unless broken by careless handling.
There is no necessity for any one
touching the lamp as the light is
conti oiled at will by means ot keys
and switches placed at convenient
riacing the electric light in a
store or house does not necessitate
buying new chandeliers or fixtures,
as almost any kind of suspended
lamp or chandelier can be used. In
dressing looms and bed rooms it is
more convenient to use wall brack
ets. When gas is used and it is desired
to use the electric light, the fixtures
can be wired or the lamps suspend
ed under the jets, without impair
ing their usefulness as a gas fixture.
Arrangement will be made to fur
nish electrolics chandeliers and
everything pertaining to our busi
ness. The station will be located
in a central part of the city and ser
vice begins at once.
Mr. II. II. Ilaytcr, Government
Statist of Victoria, has issued a sum
mary ot the statistics of Australasia
for 188G. He states that tho figures
are compiled from "olllcialreluriiH,"
and though his information in rather
more than a year old, it ib still in
teresting. The total population at
that date is set down nt :t,'120,f)(2,
thu colonies of Victoria and New
South Wales being each slightly
over a million. For long thero has
been u hard race between these tuo
colonies as to which of them should
first contain ;v million inhabitants.
The boast of being tho most popu
lous colony in thu group has now
forever passed away liom Victoiia;
for while New South Wales has a
vast extent of country to fill up, the
area of Victoria is comparatively
Now Zealand, some six or seven
years hence, will doubtless be the
next in the gioup which will have a
million or upwards settled within
her borders. Tho disproportion of
the sexes is still considerable, for at
the closo of 1880 it has been ascer
tained that theio vvero 118.81 males
to every 100 females in thu group.
Tho total births in tho group in 188G
was 110,250, nnd the deaths -18,205,
Tho excess of bfiths over deaths va
ries greatly in each of the colonies,
Now Zealand being at the top of the
tree in this respect, with 1!1,1G'1 ex
excess of birtliH over deaths in that
year, against Victoria 15,872 from
nearly twice tho total of population.
Tho total length of railways open at
that date was 8881 miles, witlilOU2
miles in com so of construction. The
length of electrio telegraph inopeia
tiou was 30,(588 miles, with 70,1111
miles of uiro in use for telegraph
and about 5000 miles lor telephone
purposes, Tho total area under til
lage was 8, .'107,487 acres, equal to
2.I2 aoies per head of population.
Wheat and hay wcro the two ciops
to which tho hugest areas of laud
wcro devoted, being y,C52-,015 acres
nnd 1,1-17,251 acres respectively.
An area of 22,'JOG acres was dcvolcd
to vineyard purpose. The returns
of slock assumed large figures.
Horses numhcied 1,5172,750 ; cattle,
K,2G1,778; sheep, 80,1152,020; and
pigs, 1,113,1)00 making a grand
total of farm slock of !7,113,520.
The wool production in 1880 was
.'198,511,82811), of a total value- of
