SATURDAY, AUGUST 18, 1888.
On several occasions and at sun
dry times the Ik i.m:tin has essayed
to instruct the general public of this
city and country touching the sub
ject of Missionaries. But judging
from what we have recently seen
and heard, our labor has been in
vain, we have spent our strength for
nought, and the people arc yet in
darkness. The public arc a "stiff
necked generation," and it is mighty
hard to hammer sense and rcasof?
into their extremely stubborn anil
wooden heads, being in this respect
like unto Ministers and Legislators.
Nevertheless, once moro wo return
to the subject, and attempt again to
place before their eyes tho words of
truth and soberness, whether they
will sec ortlcclino to see.
A Missionary is "one sent to pro
pagate religion." Among Christian
people the term Missionary is ap
plied to one who preaches and
teaches the Chribtian religion to the
Some Bixty years ajo, more or
less we are not posted as to the
exact length of time tho first Mis
sionaries came to these islands, sent
by a board of Missions in the United
States. Others came at later dates.
The Hnwaiians were then idolaters.
Tho Missionaries set to work to
learn tho native language, and
through its medium to instruct the
people in the Christian religion.
It is idlo talk to say at this lato date
that thoy should lmvo done some
thing clso, and that Ihey made a
groat mistake in iloiiij; what llioy
did. They were sent rxprcsscly nnd
exclusively to leach religion, anil
they did It. Among them wore a
few lay brethren, who were engaged
in various cnptfcltio in connection
with the mission.
In the course of time the Mission,
arics trained natives to become
teachers ami prenchcis, anil these
gradually took the places of their
instructors, until, as at the present
lime, nearly nil the native uhurclies
had native pastors. The supply of
Missionaries ceased, and the old
stock grew gradually less, through
removal by death, superannuation,
and retirement from other causes,
until nothing but a mere remnant
now remains, the numbers of which
can be counted on one's fingers.
After the American Missionaries
a good many years, came the liotnnn
Catholic Missionaries and Mission
aries of the English Church. The
latter, though, have never attempted
much real missionary work. The
liotnnn Catholics, however, have
been Missionaries from the begin
ning, and continue to confine them
selves almost exclusively to purely
missionary work. In fact, they arc
the only missionary body on the
islands at the present time.
Although but few of the American
Missionaries now remain, and some
of them are no longer Missionaries,
theic i3 quite a sprinkling of their
descendants throughout the islands
including in their ranks some of our
best families, in every sense of the
term. But they arc not Missionaries,
any more than the children of the
Chief Justice arc judges because
their father is a judge.
Going back again to the early
Missionaries, we find that they be
came adviscis of the kings, and in
this way became identified with the
Government, and ultimately con
trolled it; so that for a period,
quite a long period, the Government
of the Kingdom was a truly Mis
sionary Government. But as the
Missionaries diminished and the
number of other foreigners increas
ed, the Government gradually pass
ed out of the control of the former,
so that for many years, twenty at
least, there has been a very little
missionary voice or influence in
Hawaiian Stale affairs.
The foregoing facts show how
ridiculous and misleading is an out
cry at this late date about the Mis
sionaries running the Government
and having things all their own way.
When a term is employed to desig
nate any faction, or clique, or class,
is it not well and wise to select an
appellation which conveys some
kind of a correct idea of the char
acter of the particular association
intended, and not one that is inap
proriate and misleading? Why call
that missionary which is not mis
sionary? Employ some other term
to designate that section of the com
munity which is intended by the
word missionary, some term more
truthful ; and do not disturb in their
lonely graves the dry bones of the
departed fathers, nor ruflle the
the closing earthly scene of the few
who remain, by a savage posthumous
howl against the Missionaries.
The U. S. Dispatch Boat Dolphin
is moored in the naval row on the
seaward side of the U. S. S. Vanda

California. She steamed all the
way under one-third power and
made the passage in 13 days. Since
leaving New York she has had fine
The Dolphin is a steel clad dis
patch vessel of 1,j00 tons. Her
length is 250 feet and beam 1)2 feet.
Her engines arc of 2,300 horse
power, and can propel the vessel at
the rate of 17 knots per hour. She
carries one 0-inch steel breech-loading
gun, two 0-pounder rapid-firing
IlotchkisB, four revolving fi- bar
reled llotchkiss and two gattling
guns. Her complement of men is
120 nil told. It is not known how
long the Dolphin will remain here,
perhaps two weeks or possibly six
months. Neither is it yet known
wlieru sho will next sail for.
The Dolphin is n modern model
naval dispatch boats; speedy,
quick in action, handy and su
perbly armed. She is tho first of
three of her kind built for tho U.

the Pacific Squadron and rumor
says will be made the flagship.

The body of n Japanese man was
found in tlic river at Kcalia, Kauai,
last Tuesday. The Jap was a la
borer on Kcalia plantation, and was
probably trying to swim the stream
:it the time of his drowning. His
clothes in a bundle wcie found tied
on top of his head.
Quite u large number of people
visited the salesroom of Mr. Jas. F.
Morg-ui to-day, attracted by the ele
gant display of goods which arc to
be sold at auction this evening.
This will be the last of the series
of sales before Christmas, and as
the greater part of the goods will be
sold without reserve, intending pur
chasers will do well to be on hand
early. The sale commences at 7 :H0
Mr. Silloway, who first came here
on the whaler John A. Hob in 1810,
again turned up the other day, by
the baikentine Planter, to visit his
children. Mr. Silloway carried on
a harness making business here un
til he was burnt out in the conflag
ration of 18SG. His wife dying
shortly after, he shipped on a whaler
for the North, and is now Quarter
master on the S. S. City of New
York, on a furlough. Mr." Silloway
in relating his recent whaling adven
tures tells of having seen the mate
of the whaler Josephine kill one of
the crew, a Jap, by -breaking his
head with a marling spike. Mr.
Silloway further says that the S. S.
City o"t New York is likely to call
here in two weeks on her way to
THE RACE OFF.
When the Coronet arrived in
port she raised an open challenge to
the naval fleet. The Vandalia ac
cepted the challenge, and after
overcoming some objections raised
by the Coronet, it was arranged
that the Vans should get a shore
boat, and with it contest with the
gig oi the yacht. .
The night before last the Van's
crew pulled .around the yacht like
"a streak of greased lightning
through a Jersey crab apple or
chard" and so struck terror in the
hearts of the Coronet, that thej ig
nominiously backed out of the race,
by stating it was impossible to get a
crew. The "Vans" are getting to
be perfect terrors.
A witness was asked this question
in the District Court of Columbia,
and he replied, "I do not know;"
and upon being pressed for an
answer he said, "All I can sav
about that matter is, that at an early
period of life, and precisely at what
period 1 do not know, I found nvy
self upon this mundane sphere,
without knowing when I got there,
how I got there, or wiry or for what
purpose I was got there, as I was
not consulted as to when, where,
how, or for what purpose, I should
come or be brought into this world
or w hethcr I should be brought in
at all, or not." The lawyer who put
the question, appealed to the Court,
to compel the witness to answer and
say how old ho was, and the point
was argued pro et con, at consider
able length, and the Court, after
hearing the arguments of counsel,
and due consideration of the matter
held that, "the answer given hy the
witness was the most sensible
answer given to the question," and
declined to interfere to compel any
further, or other answer, and that
answer has been substantially
adopted by many intelligent wit
nesses in that section of the country,
and the courts sustain them in it.
HE WAS NOT DELICATE.
A thin, delicate looking woman
bat in a horse car one evening re
cently, in San Francisco, ami next
her sat a native of the queen's
realm. The window behind the
Hrilon was open, and the cool wind
blew in on the woman, making her
shiver. At last she said, in a lady
like way, "Won't von be kind
enough to close the window behind
you, as it makes me very cold?" It
would hardly have caused the man
any inconvenience to grant this re
quest, but he replied harshly: "J
prefer it open ; you Americans can't
stand anything; you all seem to
have consumption." The other
passengers in the car were astound
ed at his incivility, and there were
many angiy glances cast at the roy
al subject. Finally a gentleman
rose on the opposite side of the car,
anil, approaching tho Englishman,
with about 220 pounds avoirdupois,
leaned over him, and grasping tho
window, slammed it down witli
vigor; then ho remarked: "Now,
my friend, if you think all Ameri
cans are alllictcd with consumption,
3'ou just raise that window again. 1
am nn American." The little wo
man blushed, the other passengers
smiled, tho American returned to
his scat, and the Ilriton looked out
of the window anil thought.
