TUESDAY, SEPT. 1, 18SS.
Honolulu has not yet become so
crowded that private residences are
compelled to forego back or front
yards, and there is no immediate
prospect of this undesirable condi
tion ahead, at least ,so far as the
white foreign population is concern
ed. Almost every private residence
is in an enclosuu containing more or
less spare land. It is mostly used
for tree planting principally shade
and ornamental trees. That is good.
But a good thing may be carried to
an extreme, which extreme appears
to have been reached in parts of
Honolulu. The sun's rays and the
pure air of heaven are perhaps de
barred from the fulfilment ot their
beneficent mission, in many cases,
by too abundant foliage.
There is one thing, quite familiar
in the suburbs and sparsely popu
lated portions of many cities, which
is entirely wanting here, if we ex
cept the Portuguese quarters ; that
is, kitchen garden,. Along the
slopes of Punchbowl, where the
Portuguese residents are mainly
located, nearly every cottage has a
vegetable garden contiguous. These
people raise their own vegetables,
and such fruits as tomatoes, mel
ons, etc. In many cases they have
more than they require for their
own use, and sell them to others.
Every inch of their litllo plots is
made productive. Other foreigners
resident in Honolulu aro not given
to making the same use of their lots.
They plant trees, and seem to think
that that is the best or only use to
make of their spare land. AVliut
looks better in a back plot than a
nicely kept little vegetable garden?
And what is more profitable? It is
said that we arc entirely dependent
on the Chinaman for our vegetables ;
and so we are. But we need not be.
A large proportion of our people,
who aro not among tho wealthy
mechanics and others might ren
der thembelves independent of the
Mongolian in this regard, and re
duce the cost of their own living.
The inefficiency of our police
force lias often excited unfavorable
comment. But has it always been
just and fair? Wc doubt if a truth
ful denial can be given to tho as
sertion, that our polico are just as
can bo rcnsouuuiy ex
tho money expended.
MMUMT-niM MfciMifciMM.fiw t n AiiyM CUt ff-1 Hr1VTVlttr'f-am
This is not saying that the police
are up to a high standard, or Hint
they entirely fulfil the duties 10
qttiml of theni. Wo have no de
sires to screen any ilolinquindcs on
their part, or to apologize for their
short-comings ; but wo do say that
considering the fewness of their
number, their long hours of service,
and their small pay the public
are remarkably well served.
But the police force is totally in
adequate for our icqulreiuents,
other than in the quietest tune and
with the people in the most orderly
humor. Any little emergency might
arise any day, for which the force
would be quite inadequate. You
cannot expect one man to do the
woik of two, or any man to woik
night and day, or to work energe
tically for half pay. The force is
really not up to the standard which
the intelligent of the community
consider the proper one, and tho
service is weak and insufficient. But
whose fault is it? Where does the
blame lie? Largely and perhaps
mainly with the Cabinet and the
Legislature, because of insufficient
appropriation. Neither the Mar
shal, nor the Deputy Marshal, nor
anybody else, whoever he may bo
or whatever his capabilities, can
make nn efficient police force with
out money. If the Legislature
votes all that is asked for, it can do
no more; but if the Ministers fail
to ask enough, they neglect their
In our opinion, it would be well
for the community if some of the
money voted for pet schemes were
taken therefrom, and devoted to
improving the police force. Ade
quate protection for life and proper
ty, under all circumstances, is the
first demand of law-abiding citizens,
and money sufficient therefor
should be the first provision of the
Government. Don't cut down and
stint this important item for the
sake of poi houses, private electric
lights, etc. Neglect of this advice
may be regretted too late.
Editou Bulletin : It is all very
fine for gentlemen drawing their
$."),l)00 a vear from the pockets of
the people, to stand up in Legisla
tive Halls and declare that the burn
ing of rubbish is an intolerable nui
sance in some parts of this city
"and propose" some other way of
disposing of it than by imposing it
on one's neighbors in the lorm of
smoke." (1 copy from Legislature
reports in the "P. C. A.")
Doubtless the gentlemen feel
quite able and willing at the present
moment to order a rubbish cart to
their doors every morning, but there
is a large number in Honolulu not so
situated nor inclined.
While discussing this subject the
fact should bo borne in mind that
there is not another city of a like
number of inhabitants on the face of
the earth, with so large an amount
of foliage as Honolulu all the
growth of a few years.
Probably also there is not another
city with the same number of in
habitants occupying premises not
their owiit I happened to occupy
premises having a great number of
large trees whose leaves arc falling
daily all the 3'ear round ; my land
lord is unwilling to have them cut
down and, of course, is not disposed
to cart away the leaves and I
cannot afford to keep the yard clean
in that way. To think of moving is
lolly for me, as I know of no desir
able premises, situated similarly to
I am willing to rake ui) the leaves
daily and burn them in a hole in the
back yaid, as I have hitherto done,
and where the fire can do no possi
ble harm ; as for the smoke, Heaven
knows and most of our citizens can
attest that it is needed, badly
enough, with a good sprinkling of
brimstone to counteract the odors
and ellluvia emanating from tho
cesspools and vaults ordered by a
former Minister .of the Interior.
Burning leaves is a good disinfec
tant, and had wc daily a good fire
in every back yard in town, there
would be less sickness, less doctor's
bills and less funerals. Such at
least is the opinion of a

THE COITEE HILL AND VETO.
Consideration of the Coffee bill
with the King's veto message.
President Castle put the following
question: Shall this bill become a
law notwithstanding the veto by the
Noble Smith asked the Cabinet
what advice they had given His
Majesty in the matter.
Minister Thurston said that dur
ing the illness of Minister Austin he
had presented bills to His Majesty
for signature, among them being the
Coffee bill. He discussed the bill
with His Majesty for fifteen minutes
or more. He -told the King of the
probable reduction in price of sugar,
and that it was necessary to encour
age other industries. His Majesty
agreed with all that was said and
gave no information of an intention
to veto the bill. He was distinctly
advised to sign the bill by me on
behalf of the Cabinet. Tliis was at
11:30 a. m. At 2:30 p. m. the
veto message was received in the
House. It was against the advice
of the Cabinet.
Rep. C. Brown said that this mat
ter had been thoroughly discussed.
It was a question of policy on the
encouragement of new enterprises.
Ho moved that the bill become a
law notwithstanding the veto.
Noble Wideniann said this bill
was a pet scheme of the Minister of
Interior's, and he had induced ' the
other members of the Cabinet to
join him in passing it. The bill
passed the House by a bare majo
rity. If anyone would vote for this
bill with the idea that the veto
rhould be subject to advice of the
Cabinet, they would stultify them
selves, lie was not going to stul
Kep. Nakaleka said tho cultiva
tion of coffee was not a new thing
here. It was something that dated
back many years. Here was a case
of a stranger coming to the islands
and making a report on cinchona
and coffee. It was reported he had
been very successful in other coun
tries. If so, why did he not stay
there. It looks as if the bill was
for the benefit of one man. He
moved it be laid on the table.
Noble Smith said it was safe to
say that this was the most impor
tant matter so far brought up at
this session. The provisions of the
coffee bill are insignificant compar
ed with the issues involved. Every
member of the House has to record
himself to-day, and it will go before
the people whom they represent.
Are we going to have the bill
thwarted by one man? This is the
fourth veto by the King. Anyone
who will vote to sustain the veto
strikes a direct, blow at and stabs
constitutional government in this
Noble Widcmann said that the
last speaker had failed to reach him
in his argument. The Constitution
ghcs the King the right to veto and
lie could not see why he should not
use it. One tyrant was better than
Kep. Kamauoha had been in favor
of the bill from the first. It was a
very proper bill and ho thought the
King had been ill-advised in the ex
ercise of the veto.
Kep. Paehaole had been opposed
opposed to the bill and saw no rea
son to change his mind.
Noble Kobinson wished to say a
few wordB in explanation of his vote.
He was one of the minority in oppo
sition to the coffee bill, not against
its interest for encouragement of
tho industry but to the method. To
day ho was with the majority on
this question of the veto. He did
not think it right to throw tho bill
into the waste basket. lie was not
prepared to sustain the King's veto
for the reasons which he returned
with tho bill. Those reasons had
been thoroughly considered and dis
cussed by the House. He had con
fidence in the Ministry to carry out
tho intent of this law without favor
or impartiality. Therefore on the
question of whether this bill shall
become law ho was prepared to say
Kep. Nakaleka said that if this
company started coffee-growing in
Kona it would crowd out the natives.
A voto was then taken on the mo
tion, "Shall this bill become a law
notwithstanding tho veto by the
King." Ayes 111, Noes 11.

tions. HIGH VS. LOW WAGES.
The relative indifference of high
day wages when brought sido by
side with such astonishing results is
more apparent yet when we deal
with industries where automatic
machinery is employed almost ex
clusively, screw making, nail mak
ing,, pin making, etc. In the latter
industry the coil of brass wire is put
in its proper place, the end fastened,
and the almost human piece of me
chanism with its iron fingers does
Ahc rest of the work.
One machine makes ISO pins a
minute, cutting the wire, flattening
the heads, sharpening the points,
and dropping the pin in its proper
place. One hundred and eight thou
sand pins a day is the output of one
machine. A factory visited by me
employed seventy machines. These
had a combined output per day of
7,500,000 pins, or 300 pins to a pa
per, 25.000 papers cf pins; allow
ing for stoppages and necessary
time for repairs, ,&ay 20.000 papers.
These machines are tended by
three men. A machinist with a boy
helper attends to the repairing. It
will not materially influence the
price' of pins whether the combined
earnings of these five men be 87.50
or $10 per diem. The difference
would amount to one-eighth of a
cent on a paper of pins. The likeli
hood is that when cheaper help is
employed a greater number of hands
would be employed for the same
output. f American Exporter.
