FAST DRIVING AROUND CORNERS.
Without wishing fo detract one
particle from our morning contem
porary's objection to board fences
for they are certainly unsightly ap
pendages to any city lot, although
in some instances they may serve a
useful purpose, wc cannot admit
that they constitute tho ono or the
main argument against driving or
riding faster than a walk around
corners. In fact, if this were the
only objection to turning corners or
passing crossings on a trot, it would
ho of force in a very few places in
this city. Tho main obstacles to
seeing across corners, and which
furnish the principle reason for driv
ing slowly around or past them, arc
the buildings which occupy them.
13oard fences or no board fences,
driving or riding fast around cor
ners or past crossings is a dangerous
practice, and should, for the sake of
public safety, bo punishable by law.
Considering thut the practice is so
common hero, it is surprising that so
little damage has hitherto resulted.
It is also surprising to us that it
should have been so long tolerated.
The writer knows of no city any
where subject to the Government of
.western civilization, in which driv
ing fast around corners is not un of
fence against law.
The "Advcitiscr" differs from the
coroner" in the opinion that an
inquc8l was unnecessary in the
drowning case at the Lunatic Asylum,
and tho Bru.nrix agrees with it9 con
temporary in the lattci's difference.
All sudden deaths, whether from
causes known or unknown, aie made
subjects of coroners' inquests in
some civilized countries. They nay,
in some instances, reach unnecessary
extremes. But we certainly go to
the extreme of neglect in the matter.
In the particular case at the Insano
Asylum, a Government institution,
theie are special reasons for a
searching enquiry. rersoii3 inca
pable of taking care of themselves
arc placed theio as wards of the
nation, to be taken care of. And
yet one of thcc wards is allowed to
get into the water and drown.
Prima facte, tomebody is to blame,
and mi intelligent and searching en
quiry should be instituted, with the
view of placing it where it belongs
and of preventing recurrences.
Many cases, the nature of which
calls for thorough investigation by a
coroner's jury, occur in this district
during a year, that are passed un
noticed. Any one can see what an
opening is left by this laxity for the
exercise of foul play. It should not
be left to the option or the judgment
of the coroner to say whether an
inquest should be held or not ; it
should he compulsory in all cases of
sudden death, whether ftom accident
or other causes. Until such is the
case, our civilization will be open to
the charge of being backward.
L - L H.--1 -!'
All who driuk water from the city
system, without taking the precau
tion to first pass it through a filter,
takea long with it considerable
quantities of vegetable and other
matter, which must be more or less
injurious to health. There is no
disguising the tact that our water
supply is far from pure. No minute
chemical test is required to prove
the fact: it is visible to the eye. A
gentleman brought to this olllcc to
day a small piece of open-texture
cloth, which he had had attached to
a water tap. as a strainer, for
twenty-four hours. The cloth was
completely coated with fine water
vegetation and other matter. The
gentleman informed us that he was
in the habit of straining all the water
his family used in the same way,
that the piece of cloth was renewed
every twenty-four hours, and that
every time it was removed its ap
pearance was similar to the sample
shown. This had been done re
gularly for a series of many months.
.Such is the water witli which the city
is supplied. .Surely some method
can be devised by which the public
may be furnished purer water. At
all events, it is the duty of the Gov
ernment, who does not omit to
charge the people a pretty stiff
figure for what they get, to make
earnest efforts in that direction. In
tho meantime, it would be wise on
the part of the people not to use
water for drinking purposes until it
has been filtered or boiled, or both.
PORTUGUESE AND CHINESE.
Editor Bri.un.s' : Some one
who considers himself a "patriot"
has been exhibiting his ideas of
patriotism in your columns of the
2Gth inst. by praising ono set ol his
fellow subjects to the skies and
making all sorts ofj objections to
another set. There is nothing very
logical about his comparison of
Portuguese and Chinese, and he
really produces no reason except his
own "I consider," why one Portu
guese should be more valued than
100 Chinese. For instance, when
he talks about what each consumes
ho says ''all .what the Chinese re
quire is impoitcd from China, ex
cept rice, and all what the Portu
guese require is produced on the
Islands or imported from tho
States." Tho fact is that almost all
tho Chinaman consumes is the pro
duce of Hawaiian (.oil. Ills little
luxuries como from abroad, some
from China, some from America,
but tho staple of his sustenance is
homo grown. Not so with tho
Portuguese. Ho does not care for
rico or for poi, hut must have flour
imported from California for him
mid all sorts of other things that
European people are accustomed to,
1 suppose from the way he refers to
importing from tho States that
"Patriot" thinks it is much better
for the country to have import trade
with America than with China.
That may be the idea of linns who
trade only with tho States, but tho
value of any trade to tho country in
general depends entirely on its pro
fitableness. Even on his own ground
however, lie is still wrong. Exeept
llour,lhe Portuguese want European
goods chlelly, not tho productions of
the United States, and the Chinese
are much bettor customers of tho
San Francisco and Boston mer
chants than they arc.
ji'-wuitl1t4-.tiwrr,v" ' '"u" ri-AMT"jfM reju'i'MM"'vn
"Patriot's" 3cnllmenlnllstn about
the Christian Portuguese (who after
all it seems is not quite the right
soil of Christian) and the heathen
Chinese, 1 have nothing to pay
about. Naturally 1 think as little
of his pot religion (any of the num
berless varieties of it) as he docs of
mine. But when ho goes into
curacies anil rants about the
"family" 1 cannot but smile. I
have seen sonic Portuguese families
also s-oine Chinese. So have many
of your readers. 1 think 1 may
safely say that however certain good
people in this country may dislike
my countrymen, they will all be ob
liged to acknowledge that our na
tional characteristics forbid that a
Chinese "family" should even sink
to the level of what is common
among the Portuguese, and other
nations that wc sec here. Mr.
Patriot is unfortunate when he in
vites such a comparison.
Honolulu, Sept. 28, 1888.
REPLY TO HAWAIIAN CITIZEN.
Editor Bri.i.r.riK : The Hawaiian
Citizen who tries to answer my re
maiks about the Portuguese of Ma
cao is evidently one of them himself,
who perhaps could not get even salt
shrimps and cheap flour, so was
very glad to get away to this place
whoic he can get something to cat.
I think he is very well known in
Honolulu, and I do not suppose any
one will do more than laugh at his
story about the fight he tells of,
which is like a tale written to amuse
some children. I have no doubt that
he has many a time been made
angry by some Cantonese calling
him "Ham TIo Chang," which is the
nickname the Macao Portuguese
arc known by, moaning "stale salt
slniinps" and he docs not like to bo
reminded of it and of the good
reason there is for the name stick
ing to his countrymen iu that pait
of the world. What I said about
them is quite true, and every man
who has lived at Macao will tell you
I do not think your correspondent
is very wise to talk about the gam
bling at Maeao under the protection
of the Portuguese Government. I
said nothing about it, because it
had nothing to do with the subject
of my letter. But, as this rash
"citizen" introduces it I will ask
the good people of Honolulu to com
pare Chinese and Portuguese ways
in this matter. The fact is that
Macao long since lost all its trade ;
the unenterprising Portuguese,
though first in the field, but the Eng
lish take this away from them. The
place has, for a long time, been
kept up by the gambling dens. Tho
Chinese Government would not al
low them in Canton, nor the British
in Hong Kong, but they were al
lowed in Macao for the sake of the
revenue derived from them. Now
that this source of revenue is begin
ning to fail, theie begins to bo talk
ed about the Portuguese giving Ma
cao back to the Imperial Govern
ment. When we consider the
splendid position of Macao for
trade, situated as it is near the
mouth of the Canton river and only
0G miles from the vast city of Can
ton, the history of the place does
not encourage people to believe
much in the talk they hear about
the Portuguese being the saviors of
this country by settling in it.
in conclusion, I would like to ask
Hawaiian Citizen what a Chin Cow
is? Is it a Portuguese Christian, or
is it a monkey, or is it some new
sort of wild animal?
