AN EXTREME REQUIREMENT.
A bill "relating to the street rail
way in Honolulu," now under con
sideration in the Legislature, re
quires the railway people to main
tain, at their .own expense, "the
surface of the street or bridge flush
with the rail surface of their road,
both between the rails thereof, and
for a distance of nof less tliau two
feet on the outside of such rails."
This "two feet" lcquisition seems
extieme. That the company should
be required to keep the road in good
order between the rails and imme
diately adjoining the rails on the
outside is reasonable and light, but
to compel them to do eo for a dis
tance of two feet beyond the rails'
on each side, is beyond reason.
Such exorbitant conditions have a
strong tendency to discourage enter
prise. If the measure is to be pass
ed without any amendment to the
section quoted from, it had better
be named "An Act to kill tlio street
railway in Honolulu."
JAPANESE RIDING AT HAMAKUA.
Editor Bulletin: A few days
ago we noticed in your paper an
article concerning furious riding of
Japanese in Hamakua, their im
prisonment, etc., etc., said article
in toto condemning the Sheriff and
police. It is unnecessary to enter
into minor details, as the facts of
said case are well known to many
paities here who were truly eye
witnesses. I would wish to lay .be
fore you one fact, which - will, be
supported by all persons residing in
outlying districts wheie Japanese
labor is employed. I, or wc (I
speak for the district), are well
aware that Japanese appear to have
a fascination for horses, and sellers
of horses wish to find a market.
Japanese buy the cheapest, that is,
probably colts half broken in, sonic
few buy broken down pack horses,
the majority though invost in a
prancing colt aud endeavor to ride
him on Sundays to town they have
literally no control over a horse, and
cannot even manage tho leins
thoy merely "giasp the saddle and
let the horso'g'o."'
In villages on theso Islands simi
lar to Honokaa, where people are
walking along the streets or prob
ably riding leisurely along on a Sun
day to church or possibly to visit
60tne friends, horsemen of this des
cription aro truly dangerous.
Japanese hero have a fascination
to bco "a horse go for all ho is
worth." They ride from plantation
to plantation for miles on the sumo
reckless gait, not knowing where the
horse will vouchsafe to land them
we have seen them tin own from
horses and landed on a fence rail,
we have been them collide with
horses and thrown in the centre of
the public streets. These foregoing
occurrences wore witnessed here nl
most every Sunday.
Air. Lyraun, Sheriff of llamakua,
is well acquainted with ail stated
above, and I believe he has been an
oyo witness to such fuiions riding,
and for public Safety ho should and
has for the present put a stop to it.
Tho parties alluded to in your
article which occasions this reply,
were visiting Honoknu on such
horses a I have above referred to.
During tho afternoon of Sunday,
when the accident occurred, two of
Mr, Overends Japanese women
were in Honokaa, They did not ride
horses. I know the women well
and never saw them on n horse. I
saw them n few minutes before tho
accident oecuiieil. Thoy were on
foot and going down to Air. Over-
end's. A couple of Japanese on
such horses as I have described fol
lowcJ them, and ovcitook them in
"the hollow." The Japanese were
lidiug furiously and the poor women
tried to get out of the way. One
did escape, but the other was lite'r
ally ridden over and for days lay
between life mid death. I ask you,
should this be continued where "peo
ple's lives are in danger from reck
less lidiug such as this? HufoicI
close, let nic say 1 was riding along
the public road a short time ago,
when a couple of Japanese came
riding furiously along, having no
contiol over their horses, and seeing
my danger 1 headed my horse, and
jumped a bank three feet high, and
within thicc paces they collided,
tlirowiug one Japanese' from the
saddle. Since this arrest we have
seen no more Japanese furious rid
ing, and 1 hope we have seen an end
to it. Wc congratulate Air. Lyman
in suppressing horse lacing in this
Wc have received another com
munication on the same subject, but
as it is substantially tho same as
this, the end is met by publishing
the above. Ed.

UEt'OniS OK COMMITTALS.
Noble Baldwin reported from the
special committee to whom was re
ferred the item of 13,000 for elec
tric lighting. The committee arc
of the opinion that the investment
will bo a profitable one and there
fore recommend that the item pass
as in the bill.
JSoble Widcraann spoke against
it. He said tho amount was out of
all proportion to the cost of the
plant, and another thing, the water
power was not suflicicnt to run the
extia dynamos required for this ser
vice. Noble Smith moved to accept tho
report and lay it on the tabic to be
considered with the Appropriation
Alinistcr Thurston said thi3 mat
ter had been thoioughjy discussed,
both pro and con, in the daily pa
pers, and but little more can be paid
on it. The statement that the fig
ures are about double what it will
cost, is inconect. The plant offer
ed at a lower figure will not begin to
do the woik. Figures and estimates
have been carefully gone into, and
the Thomas-Houston bystem is the
only one to do the work, lie said that
the Government would notimyany
plant through agents, but direct
from the Company and no commis
sions would he paid agents, lie
thought that the matter should be
finally settled now. Therefore he
moved to adopt the report of the
Noble Widcinann said the Noble
in the corner furnished the Hon.
Noble Baldwin with estimates for a
plant of GO lights for this town that
was obtained from the Western
Electric Light Co. of Chicago, which
is far below what our present lights
co3t. Will the honorable Noble pro
duce that estimate
Noble Baldwin said he had learn
ed more, about electricity in tho few
days that this investigation had
been going on. He was a little sur
piiscd in the figures shown him for
seme of these plants and the esti
mates furnished by the Ministers.
There was a difference of nearly 150
per cent., but upon investigation it
was found that the Edison and other
systems were not suitable for the
purposes proposed in the bill, as
their power (with a small wire) can
only be transmitted a short distance,
while tho Thompson-Houston system
is the high potential and can be
operated any distance with a small
wire; and the committee thought
that as the expense was but a little
more, (if the same service was re
quited), for the Thompson-Houston
system, that should be the one
adopted, as it has many advantages
that tho other systems do not pos
sess. Noble Widemann said he would
like to seo those figures offered by
the Western Electric Light Com
pany. He could not remember
tlicm, but ho knew that thej' were
far bolow tho cost of the present
system. Tlio idea of "high poten
tial" and "low potential" must
have emanated from the government
engineer of the Electric system. Ho
ceitainly displayed a knowledge of
clccirlu lighting when ho erected
the posts for the present lights.
They could not have been placed in
worse positions to give a minimum
amount of light to the people
The report of the eomniittco was

The President said he had a com
munication from Noble Bortelmun,
abking indefinite leave of absence

tlmt they should make letums on

lution to the effect that the Alinister
of the Interior investigate the kono
hiki fisheries rights and report the
icsultof such investigation to the
Legislature of 1890.
Alinistcr Thurston moved to adopt
tho report. He said a great deal of
time had been wasted in discussing
such measures, aud if this thing goes
on and the House does not settle
down to work, the session will last
into September. Theie are several
lengthy bills that have not come be
