THE PASS SYSTEM RENEWED.
At one time, not very long ngo,
persons desirous of boarding tho
Oceanic Steamship Company's
steamers iimncilinlcl' on their ar
rival, nd before passengers had
landed, were required to procure
passes from the Joeal agents bcfoic
liand, and those nhouotild not show
a pass were debarred from going on
board until the passengers, or the
"bulk of them, hud come ashore.
This regulation was beneficial to the
people on the steamers, and pre
vented crowding and hustling on
the gangways ; but the shore people
did not approve of it, and express
ed their disapprobation by many
savage growls. This, or some other
cause, led to the abandonment of
the pass system, since which the
rushing of crowds of people up the
gangways at the first opportunity,
delaying and inconveniencing the
landing of passengers, has become
a nuisance. Tho agents, Messrs.
V. G. Irwin & Co., have determined
to return to the pass system, and
allow none but the bearers of passes
to board until the passengers have
landed. We are glad of it. Every
body will be benefited by the ar
rangement, whether they like it or
not. Three-fourths of tho people
who rush from the wharf to the deck
of the steamer as soon as she
touches, have no business there
whatever, other than curiosity.
Then, why should they be permitted
to intrude themselves where they
throng the passageways and become
an annoyance and a nuisance. Thoe
who have fiiends aboard vhom they
are anxious to meet, or any other
important business, will have no
difllculty in procuring a pass from
REFLECTIONS ON TKE
Charges of bribery against mem
bers of the Legislature and their ex
pulsion from the House on the
ground of the charges having been
proven are novel events in Hawaiian
history ; and therefore events which
naturally produce extraordinary in
terest and more than usual excite
ment, when they occur. On Tues
day last, after a patient investiga
tion by a committee of the House,
four of its members were found
guilty of having accepted payment
for their votes against a proposed
amendment to the Constitution, re
lating to the Chinese who might be
in the country at the time of its pas
sage or who might thereafter arrive,
and three of the members were igno
miniously expelled for the offence
and the other was severely censured,
but allowed to retain his seat.
So far as we can learn, this is tho
first instance of the Hawaiian Legis
lature expelling a momber for any
similar offence. Certainly during
the reign of the present Sovereign
or that of his predecessor this is the
first occurrence of tho kind. Prom
this fact the inference must not bo
drawn that our legislators have al
ways been of such a high character
that, tbey were above the influence of
bribtry ; for, as a matter of fact,
there is good ground for believing
that there have been times in the
past when bribes were freely offered
and fearlessly accepted. The prac
tice existed, but it was winked at.
For some reason, perhaps a lack of
inclination, the investigation and
punishment were not attempted.
The prevailing sentiment of the
IIouso was "in accord" with the
idea, Tho present Legislature must
in justice be credited with having
risen above its immediate predeces
sors in this regard, and tho fact
that it had the moral strength to
prefer and invest Igalu the charge
and to inflict severe pi.jiishment on
the offenders will stand as a lusting
jnomiinent to its glory.
It should not bo supposed from
tho foregoing that the final result is
entirely satisfactory to all, or that
the action of the House and tl.oae
members who were mainly instru
mental in securing conviction is
above criticism. The opinion ex
pressed by some members of the
House and many people out of the
House, that the four guilty ones
should have been treated alike, is
one which wo heartily enuoise. e
go farther, and say that Mr. Ka
wainui and Mr. Knlaiikoa are highly
censurable for the part which they,
according to their own testimony,
played in the matter. "When they
knew that bribery was contemplated,
why did they not use their best en
deavors to pievent it, instead of ex
erting themselves to bring it about?
This would have been a manly and
honorable course ; the one pursued
was mean and despicable in the su
perlative degree. These men might
have saved their weak countrymen
from the disgrace which has over
taken them. As for Mr. Kalaukoa,
wc consider that ho merited expul
sion from the Legislature along with
the three. This conclusion is reach
ed from a study of his own publish
ed testimony. It will be hard to
convince any reasoning reader of
his printed statement, that lie was
not as deep in the mud as the
others. A blot rests upon his name
in , the estimation of honest and
honorable men, which no explana
tion can remove.
AN INTOLERABLE NUISANCE.
Euitok Bulletin: A law is in
force in Berlin, which, could it be
enforced here would be gladly hail
ed as a welcome relief from the in
sane thumpings of those who think
themselves pianists. A stranger
walking along Hotel street could
imagine himself near a boiler fac
tory, or a large tin shop, while list
ening to the insane thumping and
banging on borrowed pianos by half
crazed or half drunken men, who
canuot play a single piece correctly
but have a half hundred marches,
etc., picked up at low concert halls,
with which they outrage the refined
tastes of their neighbors and make
night hideous by their hammerings.
Why do not such people shut their
doors and windows, if they play (?)
for their own amusement and not
disturb the town?
PRO BONO PUBLICO.
Editor Ui-llutin : The argu
ments advanced by the honorable
members of our Legislature against
passage of the constitutional
amendment, which leccntly died co
ignonnniously, have elicited many
disparaging comments, and from
the unanimity with which these rea
sonings are condemned by people of
Honolulu it is fair to presume that
the foresight and wisdom which this
measure demanded was prominently
absent, pronouncing the conduct of
these men wrong.
The Chinese question was not a
very prominent issue at the time of
the last general election, yet almost
every member elected from Hono
lulu promised at one time or another
to advocate Chinese restriction.
One member was actually elected
upon that issue alone. lie has
voted against it, because, as he says,
it was contrary to his principles. I
actually blush at this while writing
This gentleman lacks the ability to
distinguish his very delicate posi
tion. The painful sensation caused by
a despicable act, which the majoiiu
of men call shame, this honorabh'
Legislature knows nothing of.
Will he with some of his conlrcres,
at least, display the magnanimity to
allow the party which they have bold
to be ashamed for them?
It would be puzzling indeed to
know what excuses these men could
give, what arguments they would
use if they were ordered b' an en
raged public to give an accounting
of their conduct. Whether they be
rich in possessions, whether a prefix
of "honorable" attaches to their
never-to-be-forgotten names does
not matter. It cannot save them
from the opprobium of having vio
lated the wishes of tho men who
placed them there, not as arrogant
and self-assuming persons, but as
"the servants" of tho people. The
sooner our Legislature, our Cabinet
and every Government ofllclal un
derstands this the better it will be
for the country.
. Is it possible that any member of
this present House is not awaro that
an overwhelming majority of tho
voters are for Chinese restriction
and control? If there be such, it
would be well for those to have ac
quainted themselves with this truth
some time ago. And if they do
know it, I lor ono deny them tho
right to decide this fgravb question
for tho people. These men forgot
that they were not passing a law
which was permanent. They (.im
ply went through the preliminaries
to submit this enactment to tho peo
ple of Hawaii, and to the people be
longs tho supieme right to say what
shall or shall not bo in their Consti
tution, This right lias been tram
pled upon by some ol tho membeis
elected from Honolulu. Thoy have
thus erased their names fioin tho
roll of honor. They have lost caste,
and are breathing the poisoned air
of a people's vrrath, which has poll
ticdly killed them.
I have no excuses to make for
these men. My supreme happiness
is in Hie sntHfnelion that the uut
r.tged feelings of the "Liberal He
form Parly" (not the "He form
Party" ), will be, nt least in a mc.i
suto, ieonged by purging it of
There is only one comment to be
offered on the "total proceedings of
t:iw Legislature: Personalities have
strangled the new-born babe of pa
triotism. "Pro bono publico" lias
been drowned in the slimy sea of
personal spile and interest. And
lo crown nil, the traitorous felony
of biibeiy is said to have iilled dis
honest, hands among the custodians
of a people's confidence, among the
gunuliuus of the Paradise of the Pa
cific. Disgust has given way to
horror; contempt is turned into ac
tual hatred, and calls for justice are
heaid on all sides. The people's
feelings have been trilled with to
the utmost. Tho string of patience
ia about to burst.

NOTES ABOUT KOLOA, KAUAI.
Sit angers or occasional visitors
lo Koloa cannot help expressing
tin ir surprise and admiiation at tho
manifold improvements, that are
constantly looming up at this town.
The very cosmopolitan population
skeins to liightcn somewhat the
elfect. There arc, for example, a
German town, JJew Portugal, New
Madeira, a Japanese village, and
the never failing Chinatown, with its
peculiar odor of opium and filth,
where also at almost all times of day
and night can be heard tho ear
piercing noise of Chinese music.
Koloa seems to be the Celestials'
Paradise, for the use and sale of
opium and sham-shoo, and oppor
tunities for gambling seem to hold
lull sway here.
No one arriving at Koloa, can
have the benefit of full observation,
unless they land at Koloa landing,
or at least make a visit to that point.
The landing is the most southerly
one on Kauai. The sea here is at
all times as smooth as a looking
glass, while there is hardly any
surf on the beach.
The Koloa plantation has made,
at an enormous cost to itself, some
splendid improvements at tho land
ing. It has built a new and sub
stantial wharf for the landing of
passengers and freight. A large
i lei rick is placed on the wharf to
facilitate the handling of heavy
machinery and boxes.
A new road and improvements to
the old one have been made at heavy
expense. ' Two large warehouses arc
built at the landing, one of these
about GO x 2-1, the other about
.'JO x 24 feet. The larger ono is
raised about 10 feet above the
ground, leaving a large space under
the house for storage ol goods.
Some immense cargoes, considering
the size of Koloa, are handled at this
wh.irl. Koloa landing, as at pre
sent, is generally acknowledged to
he the best landing, next to Hono
lulu, on the islands. About 50,000
bags of sugar have been shipped
ii out this place already this season,
while grinding is hardly expected to
cense before -1 to G weeks hence.
A splendidly equipped wagonette,
draw u by a pair of strong and gen
tle horses in charge of an experi
enced diivcr, is in waiting at tho
landing on steamer days, to take
passengers to Koloa, distant about
two miles. The reasonable amount
o. CO cents is charged for such ac
commodation. The drive on the
road, which is in excellent condition,
is a highly enjoyable one. Fields
of sugar cane or taro patches, or
home nice residences surrounded by
shade trees and gardens greet the
eye. The first public building met
is the Court House and jail, a frame
structure. Close by is the guber
natorial mansion of Her Excellency
Lanihau, Governess of Kauai.
East from this place, and about
half a mile distant, is the lioinan
Catholic Church and school. The
church is built of stone, and is in
charge of Hcv. Father Libert. The
school teacher is Mr. Mica. This
very pleasant gentleman is also Tax
Asscs&or. Some 40 pupils visit this
Hcturning to tho road again, wc
meet the buildings used as a Gov
ernment school, which are surround
ed by a large and exceedingly well
kept recreation giouud, whero the
children can run about and play
during recess. The number of pu
pils attending this school is above
100. Mr. J. F. Burkett is principal
of tho school, while Mr. Neal is as
sistant for the primary classes.
A little further on is the Protest
ant Church, which i,8 built of stone.
Services aro held here in English
and Hawaiian ; English under tho
charge of Rev. Goodell, Hawaiian
under Hev. Mnhoe, The Sunday
School is well attended. Niaily
opposite the church is the magnifi
cent tesidence of Br. .7. K. Smith,
surrounded by well kept gardens.
Close by Is the Koloa Hospital, con
tinuing, I believe, about 8 beds.
Koloa music hall is also in this
vicinity, where tho band, under the
leadership of Mr. Field, is discours
ing music almost nightly. This
band, which has at present only Y2
members, bus been lately organized.
Next wo come to tho Koloa Suirar
Mill, which hns a capacity of 20 to
25 tons per day. At some other
luno I will apply for tho privilege
to inspect this mill, when I will

About 200 y nula from here is the
now Post Olllce, a fituno building
12 k Ji foot. Thla offleo has 70
letter hoses, such ns are used in
Honolulu. There Is a delivery win
dow, bc-l les nnother window, at
which a wire ini-k holding all. un
called for letters is exposed for pub
lic inspection. Tho olllce itself is
neatly fitted up in ollleo style, con
taining a safe, maps and chat ts, two
tables for assorting letters and news
papeis. Some 00 or GOO letters are
received at and forwauled fioin this
olllce every week. Olllce hours are
from 8 a. m. to 5 p. in. Service is
prompt and very cotirtoous. Mr.
E. Stretz, n genial and whole-souled
Gorman, is the Postmaster here, be
sides holding the olllce of Collector
of Customs. I am inclined to con
cur in his opinion that the Kolca
Post Olllce is tho best organized
olllce in the country, next to the one
in Honolulu. Bvu-anu-Bve.
Koloa, Sept. 8, 1888.
The following extract from n Bos
ton paper contains useful informa
tion and conveys a hint not to have
matches where rats can rcaeli them.
Attention to a little matter of this
nature might prevent the kindling of
a great blaze:
Fire-Marshal Whitcomb of Boston
has been recently experimenting
with rats and matches shut up to
gether in a cage, in order to ascer
tain whether they were likely to
cause fires or not. In the absence
of other known cause, frequent fires
have been ascribed to their agency,
while at tho same time many under
wi iters affected to scoff at the idea.
The question may however now be
considered as settled. On the very
first night that Marshal Whitcomb' s
rats were left alone with the
matches four fires were caused, and
not a day passed while the experi
ment was being tried that fires were
not started in this way. The rats
were well fed, but they seemed to
find something in the phosphorus
which they liked. It was noticed
that only the phosphorus ends
were gnawed, and in most instances
the matches were dragged away
from the spot where they had been
