People may talk about Honolulu
climate and about damp air, as
much as they please, but the fact of
the salubrity of our soil is undenia
ble. It is hard to believe for a
stranger, that one night, after an
exceptional rainstorm, he can enjoy
a boat-ride on many premises, but
that in 2 1 hours thereafter, not a
drop of water is to be seen any
where. It was astonishing to see the Hood
after the last rainstorm on certain pre
mises on llcretania street, but it w as
more astonishing to see that the wa
ters had entirely disappeared the
day after. Upon enquiry the miter
was invited to examine the soil, and
found only a few inches of soil and
then about 10 feet of dry black
lava sand underneath, in several
holes dug in the ground. This
sand is a natural sieve and cannot
stop the water from its downward
tendency, so that it is utterly im
possible for such land to bo damp
for many days.
The history of the Queen's Hos
pital confirms this theory, as we are
informed that the late Dr. Ilillc
brand selected the ground, as the
most healthy near town, partly on
account of its protected location
against strong winds, and partly on
account of its salubrious soil. This
black sand under our soil is a safe
guard against moisture and vapors,
iu spite of rains and Hoods, and
makes our city a very healthy one
under ordinary circumstances.

IN A FALSE POSmOfl.
Editor Bulletin: There is a
very stiange story some of us may
remember to have read. The Israel
ites were raided by the Philistines,
who were for a time triumphant in
all their schemes. Finally, matters
came to the issue of a war. The
Philistines took possession of the
harvest holds of Judea; but the
Israelites rallied to the defence of
their homes. As the two armies
lay encamped, facing each other,
the kiug's son, Jonathan, with his
armor-beaier, climbed up a hill to
get a good look at the invaders. It
was an unexpected apparition to the
Philistines. They were still more
astonibhed, when Jonathan declined
to be driven away, but struck down
the man that assaulted him. In
fine, such a panic immediately seized
on the whilom tiiumphant Philis
tines, that their invasion was turned
into a rout. Horsemen, footmen,
rabble, ran away as fast as they
could put a safe distance between
them and their pursiieis. For the
Israelites, seeing the Philistines be
ginning to run, took heart of giaee,
and chased down their insolent
But Saul was not satisfied with a
good thing when he had it. lie
thought he knew a thing or two ;
bo he vowed that not one of the peo
ple should cat anything till the sun
went down. Now, a vow was a
very solemn thing, and the people
all felt themselves bound by it,
though they were faint and dis
tressed. Jonathan did not know
what his father had said,
How could ho? In his ignorance,
when he came to a picco of wood,
ho found home honey, and ale it,
and was gieatly refreshed. Then,
some of the people came up, and
enlightened him as to what Saul
had vowed, lint it was too late,
The thing was done. Ho found
himself in a false position. His
father, though, stuck to his vow ;
and declared that Jonathan must
die. The people, however, rose in
a body, and said that should not be
done, and saved Jonathan.
AVhich thing is an allegory. Some
of us havo eaten some of Jonathan's
honey, and been enlightened about
matters and things wo did not know
before. Wo find ourseves and others
put in a false position, and "res

Kditok Bulletin: For its pro
tective purposes, the II. A. A.
Union places on a like fooling, all
Asiatic immigiants, whether Chi
nese or Japanese.
Yet eomo vcrv few persons con
sider it a mistake to include the
Japanese in Hie solf-dcfctno move
ment. These arc unconsciously the
mouth-pieces of a couple of unscru
pulous fellows who want to make
money out of Japanese importation
or lo transform this country into a
dependence of the Japanese em
pire. It may not be denied that, of the
two, the Japanese are a much more
interesting lace, of easier assimila
tion to European customs, and with
many good qualities, but for the
white and native population of this
country the question is not, and
cannot be, one of mere sentiment
alisin. The Japanese, whose introduc
tion here some dcsigneis want to
foster up, aie not intended as bona
fide settlers, with families to aug
ment our decreasing population.
They aie only cheap and inferior
laborers, who just like the Chinese,
do not produce anything, consume
nearly as little as the other Asiatic
laborers, like them send away their
earnings, with this mere difference
that many do not secrete their
money, but openly hoaid it up in a
savings bank, with the intention of
taking home capital and inleiest,
and they will return home as soon
as they consider they have earned
The only thing in which, for some
people, tho Japanese here arc de
ctdodly belter than their hi others
witli the queue, is that up to the
piesent time, they have not gone
into business and commerce. But
tliey are of loo lccont an importa
tion, and if lime and opportunities
arc allowed them, they will not be
found backwaid any moio than the
Now then, if the planters need
any more of this class of laborers,
let them haveasmany as needed, but
in the same way and terms as the Chi
nese, iciest, lobe kept on the planta
tions and sent awayfiom the country
as soon as they leave tho planter. The
only exception that could bo made
iu favor of Japaneso would be in
favor of a few families (and I ital
icize the word family) who might
be brought out to undertake silk
culture, and this only on condition
of lands being given to them, to
keep them here permanently.
As for all others, they are, and
always will be, for the Hawaiian
Anti-Asiatic Union, as well as for
all persons who arc not bought up
by the adventurous schemers of such
immigration, just as dangerous as
the Chinese, if not more so. And
if we do want immigration, we want
it to be oi permanent settlers, not
of leeches, who suck up the blood
of and starve out our real popula
tion, after which they drop out of
the country like a gorged sucker.
