SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1888.
SHOULD ENGAGE ATTENTION.
A work that should engage the at
tention of the Government, ns soon as
the demands of vhnt may he justly
considered more pressing public re
quirements are satisfied, is the im
provement of the streets in that por
tion of Honolulu which was devasted
by the great fire of two years ago.
The clean sweep of all buildings
by that lire presented an unexpected
opportunity of opening new and
needed streets and of widening old
ones. The opportunity was seized
by the Government of the day, aud
new thoroughfares were marked out,
on which no buildings were allowed
to be erected, and previously exist
ing streets were widened before the
rebuilding of that part of the town
commenced, so that the lines of
buildings as they now stand mark
the changes in the roadways then
Excepting on Bethel and JKuunmi
streets and a small portion of Hotel
street, nothing has been done in the
way of street improvement in the
whole of the burnt district, during
the two j'cars which have elapsed
since the great fire. The widened
streets still have the unsightly and
inconvenient elevations on the aides
where the widenings were made,
and the new streets are simply
avenues between lines of buildings,
iii some places containing dangerous
pits and in others strewn villi ob
stacles which render them almost
Now we come back to the point
at which we started, and reiterate
that the improvement of these streets,
so long neglected, should receive
attention as soon as possibleor prac
ticable. And here it may be added
that comparatively little money and
labor are required to effect a mark
ed improvement. The removal of
stumps and other obstructions, the
lilling of pits, and a little grading,
with the earth thrown from the
sides to the centres, arc about all
that can be reasonably expected in
the present condition of the national
finances, and would constitute the
"marked improvement" which may
be accomplished with "compara
tively little money and labor."
CLIMATE AND PROVIDENCE.
In the last number of "The Para
dise of the Pacific" is an article by
Mr. Marques, on the "climate of
the Hawaiian Islands," in which our
mild and equable climate is justly
extolled. The concluding paragraph
contains a virtual promise to pro
duce in some future issue of that
paper "official figures," which, "to
gether with meteorological tabjes,
will bhow that in the whole -world
there is no other climate, not only
equal, but even approaching to
Wc Bhall look intently for the ap
pearance of the "oflicial figures"
and the "meteorological tables"
which can make such a splendid
showing in favor of our climate, and
hope they will not be delayed be
yond the next number of "The
Paradibo of tho Pacific." In the
meantime we hope to bo excused for
entei tabling grave doubts of the ex
istence of "official figures" and
"meteorological tables" to prove
any such conclusion. AVc have not
to go beyond this pacific ocean, not
to mention tho "whole world," to
find thousands of islands where no
"ofllcal figures" or "meteorological
tables" are kept. If the "figures"
and "tables" are not, how can any
thing be proven by thorn?
Our climate, on the whole, is su
perlatively bplendid. Everybody
'admits it. There is no doubt about
it. Indeed, it is so good that it
uiuiiniiitiuiyji'jiiiijmmiwn.n!'iiimJJ'"'i-jMmiiminiiiMJ.i-w 'J 1t.i."JlUL "-" li""-1 '.
cannot bo mndo better by trying to
prove that there is no other equal,
or even approaching equality to it
n thing which cannot be proven, and
nn assumption which wo do not and
cannot believe. Anyhow, our scep
ticism is likely to endure until tho
pioniiscd "official figures" and
"meteorological tables" have been
gathered up from every coutlnent,
island, and islet of tho globe, to
convince us of our error and com
pel us to believe the extreme and
absurd assertion "that in the whole
world (hero is no other climato, not
only equal, but oven approaching to
In a preceding paragraph of tho
article from which wc have quoted,
Mr. Maiques refers to the vital
statistics of our Board of Health.
Ho says, and we believe truly, that
those statistics," when read in their
proper light," proclaim the health
iness of our climate. The high
rate of mortality, ns shown by those
statistics, is due, ho holds, to tho
high percentage of "mortality
among the native race." Correct.
Therefore, concludes Mr. Marques,
the high death rate as shown by the
Board of Health statistics is "not
because of disease or any vital rea
son, but simply because this" (na
tive) "race is doomed, and Provi
dence has decreed that they must be
extinct ere long." A remarkable
dogma, as full of sense and reason
as the dogma of infallibility and the
divine rights of kings!
Most savage races when brought
in closecontact with western civiliz
ation seem to decline and gradually
disappear. But what has Providence
to dowith it? Wc have hitherto
imagined that the declination was
due mainly to the adoption of the
vices of civilization, but it now ap
pears to be all the work of Provi
dence, at least so far as the Hawai
ian race is concerned, for "Provi
dence has decreed that the native
race must be extinct ere long!"
Wc wonder how Mr. Marques dis
covered the intentions and decrees
of an unsearchable Providence! lie
may be light. But we no more be
lieve it than we do that he is
able to prove by "official figures"
and "meteorological tables" that no
climate in "the whole world" equals
that of the Hawaiian Islands. To
blame on Providence the destructive
work that is being done by the
agents of the devil is rather an un
fair proceeding. We cannot under
stand why Providence should decree
the extinction "ere long" of the
simple Hawaiian in favor of the
"heathen Chinese," and do not pin
our faith to that creed.

Nashville special of the 26th says :
Mtss Mollle Green is tho heioino of
a thrilling scene in Perry county,
Tennessee. Miss Mollle is eighteen
years old and touches school on Cy
press Ciock. The childien a. few
days ago were busy with their les
sons, when a shaggy dog, foaming
at the mouth, snapping and biting,
dashed in at the door and made to
ward the children. The bravo little
woman piniig between the children
and the intruder. Sho kicked at it,
her skirts protecting her, and by
the aid of the heavy rule kept it at
bay until all tho children had fled.
Tho infuriated animal repeatedly
sprang at her throat, but she was
agile and resolutely held hcrgiound.
When all the little ones were gone
sho reached tho door, which sho
pulled to after her, and fell fainting
outside. The children in the mean
time ran to the nc.ii est houses, an
eighth of a mile distant. The men
tinned out and killed tho dog,
which had been tenorizing the
neighborhood for two days. The
gratuul parents of tho children took
up a subscription and gave tho
young woman a fine saddle horse.
Her clothes were literally torn to
ribbons during her severe encounter.
Washington, April 28th. Last
night there came near being a fight
in the room of the Committee on
Manufactures which is investigating
ti usts. In the testimony which ho
gave before that Commission some
days ago, State Senator S. Emery
of Pennsylvania said some very
hard things about the Standard Oil
Last night, Mr. Aichibald, who is
also from Pennsylvania, was on the
stand, lie took occasion to deny
all that Emery had said, and in as
many woids repeatedly declared
that'hc had lied. Emery was pie
sent and leciprocated by saying that
Archibald was a liar. Things grew
hotter and hotter, and it looked as
if a slugging match was inevitable.
The Committee adjourned quickly,
but the two angry men kept it up.
Finally, Mr. Bacon of New York,
the Chairman of the Committee,
said to them : "Look here, if you
want to light go out in the corridor
and have it out; you can't fight
here." The two men left the room,
