"MONDAY, AUGUST G, 1888.
WISH TO RESIGN.
In the Legislature this morning,
Noble Hitchcock asked to be allowed
to withdraw from the Judiciary Com
mittee, on the grtnind thai the com
mittee held meetings and prepared
reports without notifying him. No
ble Widcmann, followingsuit, ex
pressed the same wish for himself,
as member of tiic Finance 'Committee,
and for the same reason. These
gentlemen had learned in the House,
for the first time, the proceedings of
the committees of which they were
respective!' members. They had
not been consulted, nor informed of
meetings. They were unwilling any
longer to submit to this indignity,
and therefore proposed to withdraw
from the committees. Just exactly
what any man with self-respect
would have done, after threatment
of that nature. But the circum
stance leading to this end reflects
discredit on the Chairmen of the
committees. It indicates the pre
valence of a "hole and corner"
method of doing business that fair
minded men can never approve. We
have previously had hints of this
kind sf thing being in operation.
Now something comes to light. How
much more may be behind, goodness
knows. What right lias the cliair
' man of a committee to ignore any
individual member of the committee
of which he is chairman? As
head of the committee, it his
duty to duly apprise every member
of meetings, etc., and lie has no
right whatever to present any report
to the Legislature without having
first consulted each member on its
subject matter. He is simply a
member of the committee and its
presiding officer, but not tho whole
committee. Home chairmen appear
to be ignorant of this fact.
The debate in the Legislative As
sembly, the other day, on the Kail
way Bill, developed a little warmth,
and something besides. Tho warmth
was considered welcome by some
people outside, as an agrccablo little
diversion from the monotony -of the
usual proceedings of the House. A
little stirring up occasionally is good
for the members: it prevents some
of them from going entirely to
sleep, and others, whose normal
condition ib somnolcnco from gel
ting so soundly into slumber
as to be an annoyance to the
few wakeful members by loud snor
Some ignorance was developed in
the course of the debate a very
natural thing for the Assembly to
do. One member a Minister, we
believe tho legal member of tho
Cabinet.if we mistake not instruct
ed the House that there was no dif
ference between a "siding" and a
'turnout." Very useful informa
tion, but lacking in tlio essential of
accuracy, Hitherto the two terms
have not been used by engineers as
synonymous ; and henceforward
1 these gonlleracn will Ikwo cither to
citp in i jgvn wgu-T,.w.lrfinjg;j'tt.
amend their technical vocabularies,
or put down the new ruling as an
outcome of ignorance, nnd therefore
not to bo passed over with uncon
cern. There was also a development of
a little clap-trap. Ministers spoke
of the "rights of the people," and
the Ministers' determination to sup
port and defend those rights.
Good. The phraseology has be
come threadbare with ngc, but it is
hard to improve upon. It always
takes well. The unwary are entrap
ped by it every lime. Wo want just
such Ministers and Members as will
defend the people's rights, but let
Ihcm be quite sure that they have
an intelligent understanding of tho
matter, and not try to foist upon the
country oppressive measures under
Nobles Young, Smith, and AVide
man eacli developed an intelligent
aim to secure fair play and common
justice to the people constructing
the railway and the people who will
be benefitted by the convenience it
will furnish them. These Nobles
did not wish to see any right of the
public infringed upon, neither did
they wish to sec anj' unnecessary
restrictions placed upon the com
pany. This was a proper view of
the question. As. Mr. Young ob
served, the railroad will bo a great
boon to the people, especially to
poor people who cannot afford to
pay the ordinary carriage fares.
Ihc duty of the Government is to
give every possible encouragement
to such an undertaking, consistent
with the rights of the people, and
not to place obstructions in the way.
One other development may be
mentioned in connection with that
debate. Mr. Young facetiously ob
served that the Attorney -General
"had a serious nightmare in regard
to the railroad." And if one may
judge from the Attorney-General's
talk on that occasion, Mr. Young's
conclusion hit tho truth. Besides,
it was a very charitable way of look
ing at Mr. Ashford's abusive ebulli
tion. The nightmare theory fur
nishes sonic degree of excuse for
a member of the Cabinet having made
such a discreditable exhibition of
Iiinisclf. Even regarded in the light
of this palliating circumstance, the
most lenient of the public must ad
mit that the Attorney-General made
a bad "break," which developed a
manifestation in no way ornamental
to a Government portfolio.
The following is an extract from
the "American Analyst" of July
loth, and may possibly be read and
digested for the "good of the coun
try" by our Government authori
ties: An interesting experiment has
been tried with the great artesian
well in the grounds of the Ponce do
Leon Hotel at St. Augustine, Flo
rida. Directly over the well, which
throws a solid column of water 12
inches in diameter 35 feet high, a
large turbine wheel has been placed ;
bolted directly to the shaft of this
wheel is an Edison dynamo capable
of supplying 375 lG-candlc lamps.
Several hundred Edison incandes
cent lamps have been placed on the
walls of the building over the well,
and together with the indicating and
regulating apparatus connected with
the dynamo. The trials in generat
ing electricity in this way by power
derived directly from the earth have
proved eminently satisfactory as far
as the steadiuess and constancy of
the light is concerned.
EniTonliai.i,ETiN :-I noticed in this
evening's issue of your paper among
the "locals" an article referring to
"Scalpers" making a "speculation"
on the sale of tickets for the adver
tised minstrel show to lake place in
this town. I beg to state that the
boat boys seen in my store were
there by proxy, having been sent by
prominent gentlemen of Honolulu
to secure their tickets well in ad
vance, anticipating as they did a
rush for scats and being unable to
come themselves owing to business
and other engagements they had at
the time the box plan w'3 thrown
open. In no one instance was there
ten scats reserved by any ono party,
which you will find to be as I say by
reforenco to the book containing sale
of seats. A. M. 11i:wi:tt.
Honolulu, Aug. 3, 1888.
HOW STRANGERS ARE TREATED.
Kditou Ruli.utix: All well-wishers
of the Islands and its aboriginal
people are anxious to give visitors
the impression that Hawaiian in
stitutions and the conduct of the
native people, are fully up to the
civilized average. The doings of
the native Policeman, however
when ho does move to act rudely
dispels the pleasing delusion.
A caso happened nt Wailuku a
week or so ago. A stranger, Mr.
Caleb Leonard trotted his horse
slowly over the bridge. There is a
notice on each side at the center of
the bridge, about 6 feet long, in
small and well worn letters, and as
tho bridge is over 100 feet long it is
obvious that a stranger riding over
tho bridge for a first time, and looking
ahead would not bo likely to sec the
notice. This is of courseas it should
be for revenue purposes, simply a
trap for strangers, and gives the na
tive policeman a chance to assert
On this particular occasion how
ever, there was no policeman nearer
than Young lice's restaurant, and
there the lynx-eyed Ofilcer Kahale,
(who may generally be found within
the savory atmosphere of that esta
blishment), was informed by a na
tive woman that a "haolc" rode
faster than a walk over the bridge,
and stopped at a store close by.
The officer at once found his prey,
nnd like his great prototype Dog
bcry proceeded to the charge with
out witness or warrant. Mr. Leo
nard was at once arrcsled,liis horse's
bridle held by the policeman, and
was being led to the police station,
but was stopped by Mr. Leonard
paying the policeman five dollars,
which I suppose he paid into the
Treasury as a good and vigilant ser
vant. Now, sir, I contend that the She
riff should have had the thing en
quired into aud the money refunded
until proper proceedings as laid
down by law had been instituted.
If every policeman is allowed to ar
rest foreigners without warrant, for
a misdemeanor, I can only say that
there will be broken headed olllcers
and an intelligent jury will say,
"Served 'cm right." Spkctatou.
OUR SAN DIAGO LETTER.
Our little city by the sea-side, as
your reader are doubtlqss aware, is
situated in the Southwest corner of
the United States. Our splendid
land-locked harbor is not very far
distant from the tropics, the latitude
being 32 -il N. The harbor of San
Francisco is situated in 37 '17-35
N., or nearly 500 miles further to
ward the North pole. The time is
not to be much longer delayed, when
a goodly share of Honolulu trade
will bo diverted from San Francisco
to this port, thereby materially short
ening the voyage. Not only will
the passages be shorter, but it will
be confined to that portion of the
Pacific Ocean which is almost al
most always true to its name. Pas
sengeis may be reasonably sure of a
safe, expeditious and pleasant trip
between San Diego and Honolulu.
When regular steamship service is
established between these ports, you
mav expect a considerable increase
in the number of American visitors,
and commerce between the United
States and the Hawaiian Kingdom
will receive a fresh impetus.
You have probably learned that
Mr. John D. Spreckels recently won
a decisive victory in a yacht race,
from the Golden Gate to Point Loma
at the entrance of this harbor. The
winning craft secured a valuable
prize in .gold, as well as nautical re
putation. During his visit Mr.
Spreckels entertained many of our
citizens in a princely manner, and
his generosity on board the Lurlinc
was duly appreciated. While the San
Francisco yachts were in this harbor,
we were favored with a visit from
the famous yacht Coronet, from
New York. The Coronet is now re
fitting, and it is understood that she
will sail for Honolulu in a few days.
Her arrival in your waters .will be
an occasion of no little interest and
Our old lighthouse is to be re
placed by a new structure with all
the modern improvements. Another
lighthouse will also be constructed
on a neighboring point of land.
With these safeguards navigators
can easily conic to anchor in front
of the city, at any time in the 2-1
Work will soon bo commenced on
the extension of a wharf belonging
to the Messrs. Spreckels. When
this improvement is completed, we
shall more frequently have the op
portunity to honor the Hawaiian en
sign. A. B. W.
