FRIDAY, MAY 11, 1888.
Dull and bright times, in a com
mercial or momentary sense, alter
nate in the history of all producing
or manufacturing countries. Sus
tained active demand for the staples
of a country puts up prices, and
&ei these in turn stimulate activity in
production. As long as the two
continue material prosperity lasts,
and times are bright. But tho re
verse condition is sure to follow,
soon or late. The supply, under
extra stimulus, will ultimately ex
ceed the demand, prices fall and dull
Such are the general principles
which regulate the commercial and
monetary thermometer of producing
and manufacturing communities, yet
it is admitted that other and minor
causes frequently have a greater or
less helpful or detrimental inlluence
in determining' conditions.
Bright or prosperous times usually
beget habits of extravagance and
costly living in a community, which
disqualify for times of scarcer cash,
when they come, and induce mur
muring and discontent with dull
times which are absolutely not so
dull as the complaints indicate.
The clianac from bright to dull
times, or from the latter back to Hie
former, is seldom sudden. The
process is slow and gradual.
Dull times have come upon us in
Honolulu and at the Hawaiian
Islands. They have come gradually.
Our present time is dull, com
paratively dull, dcrll in contrast
with periods in the past. Al
though as yet we are strangers to
the low depths of depression which
have been recently and arc now
heing felt in some other parts of the
Before the reciprocity treaty with
the United States of America we
were in a state of general depres-
' aion. The trcatv revived our hones
and stimulated enterprise. Foreign
capital flowed into the country, and
within a couple or three j'ears of
the ratification of the treaty we con
sidered ourselves a prosperous peo
ple, and seemed to think that our
prosperity must last for ever. A
large increase in our staple pro
ducts followed; these were mar
keted at a high prices; wages rose to
a figure previously unknown in the
kingdom, and ready money became
abundant. Out of all this grew
wild speculation and loose extrava
gance. By-and-by there gradually came
a change. Our principle product,
.sugar, began to lower in puce, be
cause so many other countries had
increased their supply, as well as
these islands, tempted thereto by
prospects of large profits. Now be
gan a checking of the speculative
tendency in this particular industry,
which gradually extended to others,
and was ultimately felt in all
branches of trade and commerce.
.So that now wc have reached a stage
where the majority of peoplo think
there is something wiong, and cm
ploy their time in complaining and
fastening the blame for tho dull
limes on souio particular class of
the community, or some particular
preventable act or acts of persons
controlling tho national policy.
Overlooking tho primary cause
already indicated, of our dull times,
and the inevitable reaction of over
speculation, some peoplo account
for the entire depression by tho pre
sence of the Chinese element, appa
rently ignorant of tho fact that tho
Cliineso merchants and traders feel
tho dullness as keenly as any class
of tho community. Others unrea
sonably avor that the sole causo is
to be found in the Government.
How or In what way tho Government
is accountable, or by what means It
can cause a return of thu "good old
times," does not appear.
To bo Bure, no candid man will
deny that times with us are dull
comparatively so, at least ; and no
intelligent man ill deny that some
minor ciicumstances within our own
control may help to augment the
dullness; but the main cause or
onuses mi c of a nature that we arc
unable to regulate. Therefore it is
true wisdom on our part to unite in
curing what is curable ; and for the
rest, cheerfully make the best of
our circumstances, hoping for hotter
times until better times come.
Euitok Bumxtix: I am sur
piisedat the sentiment of two of
your locals in last evening's paper
in regard to the appointment of
Government physician for Ililo.
Had you been personally acquainted
with the facts, J am certain that the
items would not have appeared in
"Dr. Fanny," as Ililoitcs like to
call Miss Francis "SVctmorc, M. D.,
is pre-eminently qualified, scientific
ally, physically, and by her thor
ough knowledge of the natives, to
fill the position of Government
physician in the Ililo district. Shu
had become familiar with many of
the usages in medicino before she
went to the United States to take a
practical course in one of our best
medical schools, then she came
back and practised medicine for
some time. When she saw that for
some diseases almost peculiar to
this country it would benefit her to
study under celebrated specialists,
so she again went to the States and
lumaincd another year. Her suc
cess since coming back the second
time has been very great, so much
that the larger part of the inhabit
ants, especially natives and Poilu
guesc, have for some time employed
her. She is sympathetic, gentle
"Dr. Fanny" is not hampered by
any of the sham conventionalities of
so-called polite society, but pro
perly dressed for her work and for
protection against the weather. Sho
mounts her horse and let the rain
come down in torrents, or the night
be ever so daik she is instantly off
to any part of the district to alle
viate sulfering,never asking whether
the people wanting her be rich
or poor. Of all the appointments
made by the Board of Health, none
will give the satisfaction to the peo
ple of Ililo that this one will. And
if a selection of Government physi
cians for Ililo was left to a popular
ole, Dr. Fanny would certainly re
ceive nine-tenths- of the votes, let
her opponents be whom they might.
