MONDAY, MAY 14, 1888.
Men are prone to extremes, and
in seasons of excitement overstep
the limits of moderation, to their
own discredit and to the ultimate in
jury of the cause they strive to ad
vance. Generally speaking, ngc,
experience, and reflection bring
moderation, although these arc not
always sufllcient to prevent an im
pulsive nature overleaping the
bounds. The man who is himself
moderate and counsels moderation,
in times of immoderate excitement,
is usually ignored and his advice
rejected. Moderation at such times
is interpreted to mean weakness or
fear, or a mixture of both. When
the storm has rolled by and reason
and reflection have lcsumed control,
it generally becomes apparent that
the moderate man was the wise man.
Moderation is the fruit and the
evidence of superior foresight, know
ledge, and wisdom.
London is to have another Exhi
bition a more original and in some
respects, larger show than any of its
predecessors in South Kensington.
The United States of America have
long been flesh ous of impressing
the old country with the extent and
vaiiety of their resources, and no
better fonn of advertisement exists
than an exhibition of the conven
tional kind. This American show,
however, will have many new and
peculiar features. It will cover an
enormous acreage, and will embrace
three several sections those of art,
commerce, and entertainment.
Amongst the first the most interest
ing exhibit will be a portrait of
Queen Victoiia, painted by the first
American artist some fifty years
ago. Commerce will be presented
by American products, and by a
vaiied display of those mechanical
inventions and contrivances for
which the American people have al
ways been famous. The switch
back railway, a line of singular
curves all up and downhill, will be
a gieat attraction. But the interest
ing sight of the Exhibition will be
tbe large troupe or circus owned by
"Buffalo Bill," a vast entertain
ment reproducing exactly the most
exciting wild sports and hunting
scenes of the Far "West.
SUGAR BOUNTIES CONFERENCE.
At the conference of Sugar Boun
ties receutb held in London, the
delegates from the various powers
represented signed a convention on
the subject. Absolute failure of
this international meeting had been
predicted, and there wcro but a few
even among the most hopeful and
sanguine, who anticipated such a
satisfactory settlement. It only
remains now for the Foreign Gov
ernments to ratify the Draft Con
vention. Whatever influence the
opponents of tho Convention can
bring to bear, and they arc weighty,
will be offset by the growing popu
lar feeling on tho Continent of Eu
rope against the efforts of tho mo
nopolists to maintain a system which
is entirely to theii advantage. The
Conference meets again next year,
and in the meantime diplomatic cor
respondence may do much to smooth
may all difllculties. This action of
the Convention will encourage the
sugar refining industry, and conse
quently a much larger force of la
borers will be employed, pnrticu
laily thoso who have been accustom
ed to tho woik, and liavo depended
upon it for their means of subsis
tence. The action of tho British Govern
ment in summoning this interna
tional conference has removed n se-
rious cause of discontent onllio pait
of the sugnr ptotlucing colonics of
tho West Iiullcs, Auslralin and
South Afrlcn, whose interests dur
ing tho session of tho Convention
were carefully watched and guarded.
QUARANTINE ON THE KAIMILOA.
Some two hundred and fifty Chi
namen came by tho steamship Pekln
on Saturday, tho 12th inst. It ap
pears that among them was a con
valescing ease of vaiiolold, which
necessitated their being placed in
quarantine. This was, under the
circumstances, a proper precaution
ary measure. But why were they not
quarantined across the bay, at the
rcgulnr quarantine station? Why,
with tho station and every conve
nience there for quarantining pur
poses, wcro these Chinamen huddled
on board the little "Kaimiloa"
whore theio is not sufllcient room
for one-half their number? AVith
two hundred and fifty persons, that
little craft must be literally jammed
full, below and above, just as sar
dines arc packed in a tin. Human
ity revolts at such a spectacle.
What does the Board of Health
mean by this new and inhuman de
parture? It had better rise and ex
plain. REPLY TO JOHN F. SMITH.
Editok BuLumx: I have long
regarded Mr. John F. Smith as the
Demosthenes of Honolulu. The
versatility of his pen and his spaikl
ing brain arc ever on the war path.
His letter headed Consistency in
your woekly edition of the 7th
proves that be is much worried over
the prohibition question, and the
subject, being one of wide lange,
affords Mr. Smith a good oppor
tunity to display the swing of his
literary flail, but in this instance it
swings somewhat wide of the mark,
notwithstanding that the subject of
attack is varied aud big enough.
After using up about a column of
type in denouncing, lecturing and
trying to scate prohibitionists gen
erallj', to his heait's content, he
couieb to the word argument.
Mr. Editor, permit me right here
to challenge any and all arguments
of these destructionists. Mr. Smith
is careful not to enter into an
analysis of what the prohibitionists
would destroy as this would necessi
tate aigumcnt. Mr. Smith contents
himself with calling the arguments
of his opponents "far fetched, fana
tical and contradictoiy." This is
very convenient, no doubt, to Mr.
Smith, but it is not controversy nor
argument, it is simply "no case
abuse the other side."
In an important controversy we
we want evidence. Mr. Smith might
have brought forward the testi
mony of eminent medical men as
to the lrygienic value of alcoholic
liquids to sustain physical stamina.
He might have introduced the
testimony of lifo insurance actuaries
in fovor of moderate alcoholic drink
ing as conducive to longevity, also
the testimony of athletes to prove
how alcohol helps to develop muscle.
He might have been expected to
show that the liquor traffic is a great
conservator of the economic forces
of life, and a promoter of moral and
Prohibitionists claim that "sparkl
ing wine" equally witli "gin sung"
and theShundred other slings, cock
tails and smashes of the gin mill,
are woise than valueless as a food or
drink, that they are taken simply to
produce degrees of drunk, politely
called "elevation," "three sheets in
the wind," and other baiometric
readings up to "dead drunk" that
the desire to indulge in or be "very
fond" of it is the result of a per
verted appetite opposed to all natu
Smith rushes where angels fear to
tread, and the regions of dogmatic
theology are swept of cobwebs in
order to demolish any lurking seed
of prohibition error. But why soar
so high, Mr. Smith when the drink
question is of the earth, earthy. It
is a matter of fact, practical, every
day, a value received question, for
dollars and cents. Men who boast
that they take no stock in theology
arc in the ranks of ultra prohibition
ists. It is eminently a utilitarian
question of what is it worth?
You may spend all your wealth of
rhetoric in weaving a tinsel gauze
drapery for your idol "sparkling
wine," but a breath lays it bare.
What is it worth?"
Mr. Smith's reasoning on tempta
tion is so unique that I must quote
n sample. After admitting that tho
absence of temptation may save a
drunkard, ho says, "What merit is
there in a virtue which accrues to a
man who is merely temperate be
cause he cannot obtain wine. To
which I say we tlon't think of or
care for the merit, but tho man. He
recognises meiit in a man'who risks
his lifo to save others, or one who
helps to smooth the rough passago
of life for others, but we see no
merit in the foolhardy daring of tho
man who boasts that lie can walk to
the edge of a precipico and poise
himself on one leg over an nbyssinto
which he knows many of his com
panions have fallen headlong,
Every gin mill is a j'awning hell
and every man who frequents them
for the purpose of drinking is in
danger, and it is because I know it
from a life-long experience at tho
shady side of 50 that I am a pro
hibitionist, If Mr. Smith wants to
drink "spailding" tanglefoot in his
own house, mid without injuiy to
others, no prohibitionist wants to
InU'iforo with him, but If ho wants
to have his dutch courage on tap
at every Btieet coiner nnd in a
bachanalllnn rendezvous into which
it may be possible Hint my child
may bo lined, I do with all the
vehemence of my soul object. Mr.
Smith is n young man full of pro
mise, nnd I am inclined to think it
was the "sparkle" that prompted
him to thirst for n prohibitionist's
skull from which to quaff his stirrup
Alas, to what base uses may we
(prohibitionists) come at last. How
ever, as mine is not a "flawless"
skull I cannot deed it (a la Faust)
to Mr. Smith. No indeed, I would
have to confess that under the In
fluence of Jamison's Potheen, its
phi etiology was once sadly altered
at Donnybrook, and that wasn't the
last skirmish I had with tho enemy
and always got the worst of it.
Talking of Donnybrook brings
before me Mr. Smith's challenge, it
lias the genuino invitation to Head
on the tail of his coat. I presume
to discuss this question. I may in
form Mr. Smith that in the columns
of the Daily Bulli:tix rather more
than two years ago, the prohibition
question was well discussed. I
have no inclination to enter upon
another newspaper controversy, but
if I undeistnnd Mr. Smith to court
a platform discussion and we can
agicc upon the tone line of phases
of the drink question to be dis
cussed, he might have his desire
Mr. S. can address mo bymail or
