SATTRDAY, JULY JS, 1888.
THE CITY IN SAMJESS.
The death of tlie I on. S. G.
Wilder is sin event of in'.ional con
cern. Scarcely anyone i i the land
could have departed this life, leav
ing so many utul so deep-felt regrets
behind. Although it had been pretty
generally understood for several
days past that there v;n3 not the
slightest ground of hope for the
afllictcd gentleman's recovery, the
announcement of his demise, be
tween 7 and 8 o'clock this morning,
produced a sudden gloom among all
classes of the community. The
whole town has worn an aspect of
sadness throughout the day. Every
body bears the impress of a sense of
loss. The nation mourns the de
parture of one who has done more
for the advancement of the country
than any other citizen one whose
place it will be hard to f.ll. He has
passed into the unseen world ; we
mourn his departure ; wo feel our
DO THE FACTS AND ARGUMENTS
In the discussion in the Legisla
ture on the item in the Appropria
tion Bill for extending the electric
light system, to include the lighting
of private residences, etc., it was
held by the Ministers that by the
Government undertaking such works
the cost of supply would be cheap
ened to the people. An argument
of this particular nature, if accepted
as valid and true, naturally makes
the proposition popular, and the
'Ministers who used it well knew
that, otherwise they probably would
not have , adduced it. We con
cede, that on its face it looks like a
reasonable argument ; for a private
party or company requires to make
a profit from the capital invested,
whereas the Governraeat may lose
sight of this object altogether, and
aim only at paying rurning expen
ses, while supplying a demand. Hut
how does the argument comport
with general facts? It is held by
some writers who have studied the
question, that the argument is be
lied by the facts, that the Govern
ment production is usu.iily as costly
as, when not more cosily than, the
production of private enterprise
At all events, this point is easily
verified, that a private enterpiise
usually costs less to ni.i than a simi
lar venture conducted by Govern
ment. Here in Honolulu the water
works are Governinenjt property
and we are of opinion that they
should be, for sanitary reasons but
will anybody say wo have cheap
water? Don't think bo.
MONOPOLY ALL THE SAME.
One argument used by persons
who favor the idea of Government
undertaking such private enterprises
as furnishing people with light in
their houses, is that it would pre
vent a monopoly. How, pray? If
tho Government declines to allow
private enterprise to take up tho
Venture, ami reserves the . otitlro
tight of the undertaking to itsolf, is
not n monopoly thereby created, a
It is so strango that some men
cannot understand that a Govern
ment monopoly is just as much a
monopoly as a private monopoly 1
There may, perhaps, bo some good
reasons for preferring a Government
monopoly to a private monopoly,
and there are also some good rea
sons for reversing the order. Gov
ernment monopolies arc no new
thing, and we think the balance of
testimony is in favor of the private
article, where it is a matter of choice
between the two. A private mon
opoly can be restricted, limited, and
regulated by the Government, but
can the Government monopoly be
affected in the same way? Tho
Government is supreme, and the
weak cannot affect the strong as the
strong can affect the weak.
The contention that because the
Government is from the people, the
people can therefore regulate the
Government, is very plausible, but
experience shows the doctrine to be
more a myth than a reality. Really,
what control has the people over our
Government meaning the Executive
and the Legislature at the picsent
time? If this question be met by
the assertion that they (the men
constituting the Government) are
the people's choice and represent
the people, wc venture the opinion,
in reply, that if they now appealed
to their constituencies for re-election,
a large proportion of them
Mould be left out in the cold. In
truth, they follow their own bent,
and concern themselves a very little
about the views of their constitu
encies. Then besides, what control
can the people exercise over the
Government meaning the Execu
tive between the sessions of the
Legislature, pci iod of about twenty
months? None whatever.
It is sheer nonsense lb say that a
monopoly in the hands of Govern
ment is preferable because it can be
controlled by the people. A Gov
ernment monopoly, too, experience
!hows to be the worst kind of a
monopoly, and seldom falls short
of being a tyranny.
A DRUMMER'S EXPtRUNGE.
"mO.M WIII'.XCLCOW'STTHOU, 1'AISU?"
One thing I like about these
"Knights of the Road," is that they
are great fellows lor secret societies.
Most of the drummers belong to
everything that is going, from the
"Grand Knights of the Diamond
Gaiter" down to the "Sons of Tem
perance." I am quite a hand for
all such mysterious tilings myself,
so I get 'olid with all the boys. My
old friend Ciookston called on mc
the other day to see if I needed any
drugs and have a visit. Wc had a
jolly old time.
While we were sitting in the office
a chap came in and wanted to bor
row 82 on account of a remittance
not coming to him as expected. I
toid him my 82 I kept to lend was
in now, being sent in the day before
bv Johnnie Mclntire, but I never
lent it except to drummers. He
said, "Thai's me." 1 gave him the
grand hailing sign of the Odd Eel
lows, which he tumbled to. Then
came the great "hail in the sooth
grip of a Pylhonic." lie tumbled.
Then Crook gave him the G. 13. of
the Sons of Malta. He was on to
it. Then I tipped him tlie hair
poker signal of a good Tippler. lie
smiled and said, "O. K." This is
chemical term meaning "water."
Then Crook stuck out his hand and
gave him tlie 1. D. Q. sign of a
Arch Brick Mason. lie "got tliar"
on that. Then Crookston examined
him as follows, to make sure he was
"From whence comist thou,
"Erom the Lodge of the Holy St.
"What seek ye here to do?"
"To take a few orders and collect
a bill on Bilson."
"Then you are a drummer?"
"I am so taken and accepted by
all the boys."
"How may I know you to be a
"By my cheek and my fifty-pound
sample case. Try me."
"How will you be tried?"
"By tho square."
"Why by the squaro?"
"Because tlie square is a magis
trate and nn emblem of stupidity."
"Where were you first prepared
to bo a drummer?"
"In my mind."
"In a printing ofllco, adjoining a
regular post of ilrummeis."
"How were you prepared?"
"By being divested of my last
cent, my cheek rubbed down with
a brick, a bunion plaster over each
eye, and a heavy sample case in
each hand. In this fix 1 was con
ducted to the door ot the post."
"How did you know it was a door
"By first stepping into a coal
scuttle, and afterwards bumping my
head on the door knob."
"How gained you admission?"
"By benefit of my cheek,"
"I-Tnd you tho required chcekr'
"I had not, but Bears had in hie
"How were you received?"
"On tho sharp toe of a boot, ap
plied to my natural trousers."
"What did this teach you?"
"Not to fool around too much."
"What happened next?"
"I was set down on a cake of ice

"NoLif I know myself, I don't."
"How were you next handled?"
"I was put straddle of a goat,
made 2x1, and trotted nine times
around the room by four worthy
brothers, and then brought in front
of the left power for further instruc
tions." "How did he instruct you?"
"To approach a customer in three
upright regular steps with my busi
ness caul extended at right angles,
my arms forming a perfect square."
"How was you then disposed?"
"I was again seated on a cake of
ice in front of a dry goods box and
made to take the following horrible
and binding oath:
"1, Charles S. Bobinson, do here
on and herein most everlastingly
and diabolically swear by the Great
Hob Tail Flush that I will never rc
vc.il and always steal all the trade
secicls I can for the use and benefit
of this most August Order. And I
further swear by the Bald Headed
Jack of Clubs, that I will never give,
carve, make, hold, take or cut prices
below the regular rates. And I fur
ther swear by the Pipers that played
before Moses, to never have any
commercial dealings witli any man
or his wife, sister, grandmother, old
maid aunt or uncles, unless they,
he, she or it is sound on the goose.
Binding myself under no other
penalty than to have my gripsack
slit from top to bottom, my dirty
shirt and socks taken out and my
reputation removed and buried in
the river at Pearl street bridge,
where the Salvation Army ebbs and
Hows every two and one-half hours.
So help me Bob Ingersoll, and keep
mc in backbone."
"1 was then asked what I most

"What did you then behold?"
"A copy of Duncan & Co.'s re

Upon the open book rested a p.iir of

ten pounds of concentrated lye, and
in the other sat a small silver jack
ass." . "What did this emblem signifv?"
"The scalcs'indicatcd the balance
between debtor and creditor. The
other emblems repicsented lie
abilities and assets of bankrupts."
"Did this teach you any lesson?"
"You bet: It taught me the fact
that the former are generally so al
mighty much better than the lat

you be off or from?"
"Both, if I can borrow money
enough to get out of town on."
"Have you any cigars?"

"I did not so receive 'em ; neither
will I so impart 'em."
"How will j'ou dispose of 'em?"
