POLICE COURT PERJURY.
The gentleman who presides as
judge in the Police Court of Hono
lulu has no easy task to perform.
There arc a thousand people around
the streets of Honolulu who could
fdl the oilice better than the present
incumbent; that is, in their own
opinion an opinion, by the way,
not worthy of very serious conside
ration. The Judge has to deal with
a thousand and one little peccadil
loes of a nature that bhould never
be allowed to get beyond the family
circles in which they happen, and
these require coolness" and patience
qualities which no man ever yet
had the temerity to accuse Judge
Dayton of being deficient in. But
perhaps the greatest difllcultj- which
that gentleman constant!' encoun
ters, is to sift out the nuth from the
volumes of conflicting testimony to
which he is doomed to listen at
nearly every session of the Court,
and in the face of it reach an equi
table decision. The Honolulu Po
lice Court is a favorite place for
"hard" swearing; that is, false
swearing. It may be difficult to
convict the offending parties and
prove them guilty of perjury; but
they commit the deed all the same.
Witnesses have not the slightest no
tion of the sacredness of an oath,
and violate it with unconcern. If
some method could be invented to
compel them to speak the truth,
to the best of their knowledge and
belief, our Police Magistrate would
find the arduousness of his duties
very much relieved.
OUR TOURIST AGENT.
The pecuniary profit to tho people
of these islands resulting from
tourist travel was briefly pointed
out in these columns on Saturday
last, and the wisdom of a policy
tending to increase the number of
visitors to our shores intimated.
Some of our business men fully re
cognise the importance of this pro
lific source of ready revenue, and
are prepared to contribute a reason
able amount towards the cost of ef
forts for its enlargement. A num
ber of these gentlemen agreed a few
months ago, each to pay a stipulated
sum monthly to defray tho expenses
of an agent on tho Coast, whose
duty it should be to Induce tourists
to come down here. An agent was
engaged accordingly, and is now at
work over there.
Hitherto, so far as we can face
here in Honolulu, the agent's efforts
have not been productive of much
good, and some of the contributors
towards tho funds for paying expen
ses, appear to bo getting a little im
paticiit. These gentlemen should
consider, however, that immediate
ruit perceptible to them, hero cotilci
scarcely bo expected. If after a
rcnsonablo time lms elapsed no re
sults arc visible, tlioy will have just
pounds for dissatisfaction. Hut wo
may say that we .uo in possession of
information by the last mail from
the Coast, to tho effect that quite a
number of tourists had prepared to
comi' by that steamer, induced to
do so by the persuasions of tho
agent just How referred to; but
that when news arrived over of our
quarantine, they naturally declined
to face it. From this it appears
that tho gentleman is producing
some effect, and we expect when
our quarantine is raised, tho neces
sity for the maintenance of which it
is to be hoped will shortly disappear,
results will be apparent to us here
QUESTION AND ANSWER.
Editor Uui.T.r.iix : Were the
saloons in Honolulu allowed to keep
open in 1880, from 5 o'clock Mon
day morning till 10 o'clock on Sa
turday night, without being closed
one minute during that time?
You will greatly oblige a reader
of your paper, by answering the
above question through your
fThc answer to the above ques
tion is, No. Ed.
EXPERIENCES OF QUARANTINE.
Editor Bui.i.r.Tix: Without any
wish to publish a sensational article
on the miserable treatment to which
those citizens are exposed who fall
into the hands ot the Board of
Health and its olllccrs, I beg to offer
n plain and unvarnished statement
of the trials and indignities to which
Frank Gcrtz, Samuel Maneton, Otto
Loescho and I (M. Davis), were
subjected, during our quarantine,
from the 8lh to the lGth of Feb.
on the Reef or Quarantine grounds.
And I do say, in conjunction with
the three gentlemen who were my
companions in misery, that although
v,c thoroughly recognise the right of
the Board of Health to use all
proper precautions to protect tho
community from infection, yet we
feel that we were treated in a w orse
manner than the prisoners in jail,
and that no care was taken even 'to
supply us with a roof to cover u, or
to furnish any of those absolute ne
cessaries of life and its surround
ings, even though we were anxious
and willing to pay for any and all of
them ; and further that when we arc
aware and able to prove that the
other passengers experienced much
better treatment and many moie
privileges, we feel that we have
been cruelly and unjustly treated.
"Without" further preamble 1 will
state how we got to the Quarantine
grounds, how wc fared, and how we
got out. I would not wish my
worst enemy to go through a similar
Under the orders of Dr. Emerson,
President of the Board oi Health, 1
was permitted to go into quarantine
on my own premises, on the 8th of
February, on my agreeing to pay
all expenses. From the 8th to the
11th inst., I was in quarantine with
out any complaint, and 1 know that
I adhered strictly to such quaran
tine rules as I was acquainted with,
but 1 here state that 1 never saw or
was told of any rules until the 11th
inst. , when a printed card was given
to me by Dr. Emerson.
On the 11th inst., I came down
to dine with Mr. Maneton, from the
upper room to the lower one, with
out any hindrance from the guard,
and dined there, seeing or commu
nicating with no one but ourselves.
After two or three hours Mr. Rey
nolds came. lie seemed satisfied
with the state of things and left.
Soon after Dr. Emerson came and
informed me that I had broken the
rules : that I should have remained
in the rear house. But 1 explained
that as 1 had received no rules or
instructions', and as the guard had
offered no objections to my moving
from one room to tho other, my
error was done in ignorance, and
the iault, if any, must rest with him
or bis paid odicor. He then on the
11th inst. gave me a printed caid of
rules. At 0 p. in. that evening
Reynolds returned with an order in
writing from Dr. Emerson, to re
move me and Mr. Maneton to the
Quarantine Station, otherwise known
as the Reef.
I refused to go there, but baid
that my friend and I would go to any
respectable hotel or cottage, where
we could receive the comforts of life
to which we were accustomed, and
for which we were willing to pay.
Reynolds said the "Dudoit House"
was full and that there was no place
for us but tho reef, and that bis
orders wero to take us there. Un
der those circumstances we went.
I enquired of Reynolds how wo were
to live? lie said all that was neces
sary for our comfort was thcro, and
that ho could live thcro himself.
When in the gloom of night wc
reached there, wo found a great
barn or room 35 feet by 25 feet,
without a glass window therein,
most of the outside shutters being
broken out and tho sea air with its
thousands of mobquitoeb blowing
right through tho building, with two
stable lanterns to render the
desolation and discomfort of the
scene most painfully apparent.
Tho roof was ot rough shingle, and
through the holes therein tho moon
light shone in several places. Tho
doors could not bo kept shut as the
fastenings- were broken, and the
wind kept blowing them open.
Around tho walls were A tiers of
bunks, scrawled and disfigured by
Chinese figures and dirt. Thcro
were four wooden chairs and four
long tables. This was tho entire
outfit of tho comfortable quarters to
which tho President had ordered us.
Wc refused to stay in this wretch
ed hole and then Reynolds told us
wo could have the dining room.
This was the same size, equally as
bad in every respect as the first, but
without the bunks, and as wc found
that we could not better our unfor
tunate condition, we submitted un
der bitter protest to remain.
Wo received one new straw mat
tress, one straw pillow, and from a
pilo of blue horso blankets which
were alive with moths, and which
dropped to pieces, were told to
select our bedding; which offer 1
declined. Understand, there was
no bedstead, no mosquito net, no
sheets, no pillow slips, no chamber
utensils of any kind, no water in the
room, and we had to sleep on the
table. The woman in charge upon
seeing the state of my face on the
next morning, volunteered with ex
pressions of sympathy to give mo
her own mosquito net. The rats
ran round the room and over us in
the most friendly manner possible,
and showed appreciation of our
boots. To get a drink of water we
had to go about fifty feet acioss the
enclosure to a tank, where wo could
wash or drink not a towel, brush,
or comb. The W. C. was GO feet
away, over a single plank across a
mud hole to a roofless enclosure
jutting over the sea.
On Tuesday night, the Mth inst.,
there came on a heavy storm, and
after we had been on the table,
otherwise bed, for llnee hours, wc
were awakened to find ourselves in
a perfect shower bath from every
pait of the roof, and wc were wet
through, our beds saturated, our
clothes clinging to us, and there wo
sat like half-drowned rats, praying
for da3'light, our boots floating
round full, causing us to wish wc
could get full also.
After we had been in this hole 5
days, Dr. Emerson with Mr. Tutus
ton, Mr. S. Damon and Mr. Rey
nblds, visited us on Wednesday at
midday. I don't know what they
came for, but they never asked if
we wanted anything, and having
stayed about one hour they left.
Reynolds came first on the Mon
day, and 1 complained of our treat
ment, but he made no reply and did
nothing to remedy the evils. lie
came again on the Wednesday. On
Thursday the lCth, he came and
tendered our bills, stating that he
would discharge us if wc would pay
his charges. I objected and refused
to pay, when he said that I should
siay mere uniu i woulU make up
my mind to pay. After some con
sultation, the whole of us being sick,
weary, and unhappy, we consented
to the extortion, and under piotcst
paid, and with a heartfelt sigh of
joy, left the filthy precincts of the
quarantine station. -
With the earnest hope that this
article will achieve the purpose for
which it is written, namely, to com
pel the authorities to remedy the
evils before the next batch of vic
tims are deported there, we sub
'Die premises ot ICulihi Valley adjoin
big the residence ot Mm. Markliam and
known as tho Suerrero Homestead. They
consist of dupe distinct lots, viz:
1 House lot upon which stands a sub
