TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 1888.
The man Trainor died under cir
cumstances which excited indigna
tion in this community. The mat
ter has been ventilated in the Bul
letin, editorially and by correspon
dence. Other communications have
been withheld from publication, be
cause it was understood that the
case was being investigated by the
authorities. Now, is it not about
time that the public knew the result
of the investigation?
Is it right and reasonable to sub
ject the entire community to the in
conveninnce, annoyanco and expense
entailed by our passport system, be
cause it is favored by a few trades
people, who are too ready to give
credit to extravagant customers on
the strength of its security? If to,
then let it be henceforth understood
that the minority takes precedence
of the majority.
AUSTRALASIAN MAIL MATTERS.
A passenger by the steamship
Alameda, from San Francisco, in
forms us that a report was current
in that city to the effect that the
mail contract, existing between the
Governmrnts of New South Wales
and Now Zealand, and the Oceanic
Company, would not bo renewed
after its expiration in November
next. Overtures for carrying tho
mails between the Australian Colo
nies and England, have been for
some time in progress by represent
atives of the Canadian Pacific Hail
way Syndicato in Australia, and
these overtures arc now reported to
have been successfully arranged.
Negotiations of a reciprocity treaty
of trado between Australia and
Canada are also known to bo in
active progress, with much appear
ance of success sooner or later; and
tho facilities afforded by direct
steam communication, between these
two British dependencies, will
doubtless hasten a convention of
reciprocity. It is yet, it appears,
uncertain whether San Francisco
will be made a way-port of the new
line or bo loft out altogether ; but
it is tolerably certain that, if the re
ported change of contract is made,
Vancouver, B, C,, will be the
northern terminus of the steamship
line, and that Honolulu will con
tinue to bo a way port as at present.
A QUEER COMMUNITY.
This is a queer community. It is
made up of so many nationalities
that cohesion is scarcely to bo ex
pected. Kvery man at least every
native Hawaiian and'cvciy European
and American foreigner is more or
less n politician.
Tho theoretical politics of llio
foreigner arc determined largely by
his nationality. If lie is an Ameri
can, lie thinks American methods arc
the best for Hawaii; if any English
man, no prcicrs mo iyigitsii way;
and so on to tho end of the chapter.
There may be a few men in the
country, of different nationalities,
who realise that our conditions arc
peculiar, and that to adopt the poli
tical system of any oilier country in
its entirety would bo folly. But the
majority have not advanced so far.
Political parlies, in tho American
or English sense, do not exist here.
Cliques and factious wo have. Par
tics in the United States, Germany,
France, Great Britain, and other
countries arc understood to be based
on views of stato policy, not on
personal interest. We cannot truly
say that such is the case in Hawaii
Practical politics here seem to be
regulated mainly by self-interest;
that is, a man favors the faction or
person considered most likely to
benefit directly in a business or
financial sense himself or friends,
although the broad principle of "the
greatest good to the greatest num
ber" may be thereby ignored. Hence
we find-a man bitterly opposed to
one set of men in power, ostensibly
because they do wrong acts, and
then warmly supporting another set,
although they may commit the same
The natural inference is, that the
quality of the acts is determined by
the men, and may be expressed
thus : If I do not like the men and
if they do not work into 1113' hands
I cannot like them their acts are,
per sc, diabolical ; but if I do like
them and if they bring "grist to
my mill" I cannot help liking them
their acts are, per se, heavenly.
This explains why a man of princi
ple who strenuously objected to cer
tain doings under the old regime,
and consistently declines to endorse
similar doings under the new, should
be considered a false and unreliable
man. Truly, this is a queer com
munity, and wc have but faint hopes
of its ever becoming otherwise
PURE INTELLIGENCE AND VUL
GARITY. Editor Bolllxin : Tho youthful
and caustic editor of the Daily "P.
0. Advertiser" hasreceivedashock.
A paroxism of mortification racked
his enlarged and cultured intellect,
because that esteemed lady Mrs.
Williams attracted so small an
audience to her first lecture.
In a burst of puerile and im
potent race he proceeds to castigate
and malign all who did not attend.
Those who were present (includ
ing the wrathful tyro) possessed
"pure intelligence;" the absent
were "vulgar," "betrayed their pro
vinciality," and "lack of genuine
culture," in fact were "barbar
ians." Such ranting not only evinces
want of taste and good breeding,
but tends to injure the success of a
course of lectures which arc of a
high order of merit.
Om: or the absent oxes.
Honolulu, June 18, 1888.
Editou Bulletin :
Now if prohibition decreases tax
ation it certainly ought to do so in
the banner prohibition state, Maine,
but we find tho contrary to be the
case. In 1880 there were paid in
taxes in that State, $5,182,135,
equal to $7.98 to each person ; while
in 1800 in the same Stato the whole
tax only amount to $3.50 (S2,257,
213), per capita, or less than one
half what thoy had to pay after
the State passed under the control
of the prohibitionists. (Sec U. S.
Statistics, Vol. 2, p. 1509.)
Missouri received in taxes in 1800
$i, 109, 053, equal to $3. -10 for each
person ; in 1880 $10,209,730, equal
to $-1.78 to each person.
In 1880 debt of Maine S31.55
per capita; Missouri, $20.50 per
capita; Ohio, $1-1 per capita. See
U. S. Statistics, vol.,2, p. 552.
From the above facts you will see
that pauperism is not onby greater
in prohibition States, but taxes are
higher and tho Stato debt larger in
proportion to popnlation than in
Let us examine some school sta
Maino in 1850, populace 583,109;
Bchool attendance, 180,222; per
cent, 31. In 1800, populace 028,
279; school attendance, 189,210;
per cent 30. In 1870, populace
020,915 ; school attendance 155,140 :
per cent 24 ; 1880, populace 018,
930; school attendance 150,811;
per cent 23. Showing a continual
decrease of school attendance. Sec
U. S. Statistics, vol. 2, pp. 16J0
1041). In Vermont auother prohibition
Stato tho per coat of school attend
ance was for 1850, 29; I860, 25;
1870, 20; 1880, 20.
New Hampshire still another pro
hibition Stato shows school attend
ance as follows : 1850, 27 per cent;
1SG0, 25; 1870, 20; 1880, 18.
From the above it will be seen that
school attendance fell off during
prohibition. Legislation in IMainc
25 per cent; in Vermont ill per
cent, and New Hampshire U3 per
cent. Compare ti licence State.
Missouri in 1850, population 082,
011, school attendance 95,285, per
cent 13. In 1800, population 1,
182,012, school attendance 203,188,
percent 17, In 1870, population
1,721,295, school attendance 321,
318, per cent 18. In 1880, popu
lation 2,108,280, school attendance
180,002, per cent 22, showing a con
tinual increase of school attendance.
Prohibitionists assert that prohi
bition is tho great highway to pros
perity, let us s whether this is a
fact or not.
Maine in 1850, population 538,
1G9, inanufaclural products $21,
001,057. In 1880, population 018,
135, manufactural products $79,
829,793. New Jersey, where a saloon is to
be found on every comer, had in
1850 '189,555 population, or nearly
100,000 less than Maine, yet her
manufactural products were worth
39,851,110; in 1880 she had a
population of 1,131,110, and her
products brought $25-1,380,230.
Connecticut had in 1880 022,700
people, and manufactured $185,
098,211 worth of products, or more
than twice as much as Maine, and
so tho comparison will hold in almost
every State. As where tho just free
dom of the people is suppressed, and
the affairs of State managed by the
fanatical element of selfishness and
egotism always displayed by the
leaders of the prohibition party
enterprise is killed. Prohibition lias
always failed of accomplishing what
its advocates claimed for it, and now
they put on a face of boldness and
assert everything but prove nothing.
Even in this country since tho
issuance of so many licences during
the two years just past the crimes
committed have decreased by 832,
that is 832 more crimes were com
mitted when only a few licences
were issued and all of them in Hono
lulu. The liquor business in all of 'its
departments should bjr law only be
allowed distinctly by itself, and not
carried on as it is here in connection
with every other line of merchan
dise. Then when a man went into
the place to buy a dozen of wine he
could not come out with 25 cents
worth of ribbon or a violin string as
a blind. Here in Honolulu not onby
loud talking prohibitionist but lead
ing church members patronize the
Prohibition failed in the Garden
of Edon. Old Noah's boys received
severe punishment for making fun
of their father because he had over
estimated, and Jesus made wine for
drunken men to drink. Let ever'
one be consistent. Facts.
