MONDAY, OCT. 1, 1888.
Without wishing to rcagitate or
attempting to answer the query,
"Who brought the whooping cougli
to Honolulu?" we would suggest
thnt all parents and guardians who
unfortunately have children afflicted
with this distressing complaint should
carefully quarantine them from
other children. Such a suggestion
is undoubtedly quite superfluous
in a majority of cases, but there
arc certainly some who need caution
ing, if complaints -which have
reached this olllce may be taken as
evidence. No parent who is so un
fortunate as to have children alllic
ted with whooping cough can wish
the same misfortuno to overtake his
neighbors, and a little thoughtful
care may in sonic instances prevent
the spread of the trouble, that will
otherwise be assisted.
Editor Bui.ixtin: Would it be
amiss to able the gentry who have
lately occupied the pround position
of posing as juud-flingers before our
community when their occupation
will cease? Would it be thought
cruel if I suggest that theso men
would confer a boon upon our peo
ple of Hawaii if they would apply
the pinchers of common sense to
their gatling gun of imbecility, ad
just its sight, and at least make an
attempt to shoot at the mark?
This volcano of Chinese eruption
is Tery microscopic in its effect ; it
is gigantic in blindness and stupid
ity. Already we perceive its lava
dust rising in the skies of other
countries, reddening the sun of en
lightenment among nations, and be
causo we do I say, remember all
this is going abroad, all this brands
these islands as tho propcity of Chi
nese coolies. I will ask, is this a
recommendation to us or is it not?
Let me write on tho forehead of
every coolie these words, and let me
stamp this with a red hot iron upon
every post and corner of our king
dom: "That tho haole wants control
OTcr and restriction of 20,000 Chi
nese!" Is this unfair? Is it unjust?
Is it wrong?
We want control over these men
simply to know what thej'arc about,
what their occupation is and to ob
tain their lawful taxes,
want any more of them
have too many now.

KOLOA, KAUAI, NOTES.
It hyfortunnto for the people of
Koloa that the hot spell begins to
disappear, cooler weather setting
in. Even heaven seems to open its
gates again, sending down some
long looked for showers of rain.
A few days of lain will laiso tho
quantity and quality of our water
supply.' Tho change in weather
seems to show its beneficial effects
already for our Mick begin to im
prove. Mr. Cropp, Manager of the
plantation, is improving in health,
much to the Jov of his liiends.
A large number of sharks made
their debut lately in Koloa Bay.
Plenty of puhi, a sort of eel, abound
amongst the rocks in tho bay, in
the vicinity of the lauding, and ate
eagerly sought for and killed by
some South Sea Islanders. Some
of these llsh have a length of b!x
feet. A native told me that sonic
lime ago one of these lish had been
caught that measured more thau'tcn
feet. This may be more probable
than the stor of another native,
who insists that he saw a puhi mea
suring 31 feet in length and 2 feet
in circumference, taking a natatorial
exercise around the bay of Kipu,
Kauai. This story will certainly
have to be taken witli some grains
That the tricks of the mongolians
are many and dark, and that the
heathens lose none of their charac
teristics wherever they are, is clearly
proven by the doings and duplicity
of an almond-eyed celestial who is
in business here. As I don't know
his name 1 will call him All Sabee.
This gentleman from the ilowery
kingdom is quite an importer, his
importations consisting of no small
amount of opium and sham shoo,
mostly of opium, wherein ho seems
to do a thriving business. Asking
him if he was not afraid of his ille
gal business, he answered: "No
what for me bo afraid? Mo heab
sabee, policeman he no can catchcc
.me, me too smart, me fix Mm all
right, me make plenty of ileuof all."
Whatever the meaning may be "fix
ing everything all right and of mak
ing friends," I have to leave to the
solution of the reader.
Last week, on the arrival of the
steamer I felt somewhat amused to
watch the antics of two native
policemen, one of whom called his
nose into considerable requisi
tion to smell at the boxes, they be
ing on a hunt for opium. Noticing
me watching his doings he philoso
phically put his finger on his nose,
at the same time informing me in a
kind of patronizing and confidential
manner, that a Chinaman had told
him, some other Chinaman was to
receive -10 this of opium on that
day. Their search proving fruitless
they left later on in disgust. Alter
they had left, whom should I meet
but Mr. Ah Sabee, witli a grin on
his face so as to stretch his mouth
from ear to car. In high glee he
began the conversation py saying :
"Ha, me heap fool him policemen,
lie think he heap smart, he sabee
nothing. Me tell 'cm one China
man he get 40 tins opium; ha, me
fool 'em." Asking him for the rea
son of his conduct, lie said: "Oh
m c sabee, me sabee too muchec,
you sabee, plentee Chinamen ma
uka he sell 'em opium all the time,
mo wantee make him heap scare,
s'pose him see policemen go makai
lookee for opium, lie heap (fraid, he
no more buy, he no more buy, no
more sell, me makee plentee money
then, sell all time; s'pose other
Chinamen sell too, me no makee
plenty money. Me likce p'liccmen
go catcheo all Chinamen."
Koloa, Kauai, Sept. 20.
SUNDAY SCHOOL EXHIBITIONS.
The quarterly Sunday School ex
hibitions at Kaumakapili and Kawai
ahao churches, Sunday morning,
were. attended by moderately large
audiences. At Kaumakapili the
exercises were in charge of Mr. A.
L. Smith and the pupils from tho
various districts acquitted them
selves in a very satisfactory man
ner. The Kawaiahao exhibition was
participated in by ten schools. Tho
singing of the Kawaiahao Female
Seminary pupils, and tho Kameha
meha school was excellent. The
latter numbered -85 boys, nearly all
attired in gra- uniforms.

Slavery in the United States was
almost cooval with tho first settle
ments in the then colonies, and it
existed in all the thirteen Colonies
at the tinio of tho declaration of in
dependence, July '1th, 177C, not
withstanding the assertion in that
immoital instalment, that "all men
are created equal, and aro endowed
by their Creator, with certain un
alienable rights, and that amongst
these are life, liberty, and the pur
suit of happiness."
The slave had very few rights that
any person, especially his master,
was bound to respect.
The master had the power, and
the law gave him the light to punish
his slave, which was sometimes,
though seldom, done to a very cruel
Generally, the slave was
lowed to leave his master's
tion or premises without
permission from his master,
he was caught abroad, especially iu
the night time without such pcrmis
sion, he was liable to bo moderately
whipped. The slave was not allowed
to civc evidence, or make aflidavit
under any circumstances, wncre a
whito person was concerned; not
even in regard to an outrage upon
his or her person, by a white per
son. The slave could not sue nor
A person oven suspected of hav
ing the millionth part of a drop of
negro blood in his or her veins was
not admitted into any genteel so
ciety. Even the suspicion of a drop
of negro blood amounted to social
ostracism of the person so suspect
ed; and it was slanderous and
libellous and actionable and punish
able as such, to say, of a person
that he or she had negro blood or
was akin to a negro.
Thcro was a "slave pen" in
Washington city, part of tho walls
of which stand there now in plain
view of thc.capitol, and not far from
it, as a monument of injustice and
cruelty to a race now numbering
four millions in the United States.
There were "slave pens" in
Richmond, Virginia, and one of
these was used as a prison for union
prisoners, during'tho war which re
sulted in the extinction of slavery
in the United Stales.
These pens were surrounded by
high brick or stone walls, and the
slaves for sale in them were securely
locked up every night in houses
within these walls ; and in day time,
when a person called to buy a slave,
these slaves promptly marched out
into the yard at a given signal, and
formed in line, as regularly as drill
ed soldiers, all clean and suitably
dressed, all seemingly cheerful and
anxious to be sold, as they had been
taught to do, in furtherance of the
nefarious tralllc. If one of them
failed to act as so instructed, or to
put the best foot forward in the
direction of a sale he was punished
afterwards. If the would-be buyer
saw one of the slaves who, and
whose answers seemed to suit him,
the slave, male or female, was forth
with taken into an adjacent room
kept for the purpose, and stripped
naked, from head to foot, and thor
oughly examined before any sale
Slaves were oiten handcuffed,
and chained together, and driven in
that condition on foot, all the way
from Washington city and Balti
more and Richmond, Va., to Louis
siana and Missippi, a distance of
more than a thousand miles. Slaves
sometimes ran away and hid them
selves in woods and swamps, and
were harbored, and then they were
some times pursued and overtaken
by blood hounds, kept mainly for
Several years before Blavery went
down in fire and blood, a sensational
case occurred in Washington city,
between McBlair and Dove, two
wealthy and respectable citizens,
who were very inimical to each
other. McBlair was a man of very
fair complexion, and Dove was a
man of black curly hair, and his
tout ex scmble was very suggestive
of the negro. McBlair said that
Dove had "a dark stripe on his
back, extending from his cerebellum
to his nothennost positions," mean
ing thereby, that negro blood was
coursing through Dove's veins.
Dove brought an action against Mc
Blair for damage of defaming his
character, by the utterance of said
words. McBlair admitted the speak
ing the words, that he used them in
the sense attributed to him, and
uverred that tho words true, and
that ho could prove them. Upon
the trial he put some experts
upon the witness stand, to prove
that Africans and persons of Afri
can decent, emitted an odor sui
generis, and offensive to common ol
factory nerves, and that Doto
emitted just such an odor, and that
such odor was not emitted by per
sons who did not have negro blood
in their veins. Dove called experts
to prove that the whitest persons,
and those who had not a scintilla of
negro blood in their veins, and who
did not sufficiently use the cleansing
properties of soap nnd water to their
bedics, also omitted unpleasant
em i ted fioru t
pei sons, wus i

ally different from that of the whito
man, and that tho hair of Dovo was
more like that of tho negro hair
structurally than that of tho whito
Upon the trial Dove was asked to
show his naked back to the Jury in
order that thev might see whether
ho had a dark stripe there, but he
The argument in support of a
motion to compel him to exhibit his
bare back to the jury was, that the
plaintiff denied that ho had a dark
stripe on his back, that that was
one of the issues in the case, that
according to the rules of tho evi
dence, the plaintiff was bound to
offer the highest and best attainable
evidence in support of his conten
tion, and that the sight of Ills bare
back to the jury would be the most
convincing proof to them. But tho
court refused to order Dove to show
his back, and verdict and judgment
for $10,000 were rendered in favor
of Dove. McBlair paid it, and the
public do Wt yet know whether
Dove had a dark stripe on his back
Dove was asked on cross examin
ation if he had a dark stripe on his
back, and he said, no. He was
then asked if ho ever saw his back,
and he said, no. He was then asked
how he knew he had no stripe on
his back if he had never seen his
back, and" this inextricably puzzled
WHAT ONE MAN CAN DO.
A French physician named Itaoul,
who long dispensed drugs on a man-of-war,
finding life very dull on
board ship, stepped outside his pro
fessional line a while ago to disting
uish himself, nnd the results have
been so noteworthy that the Paris
Society of Commercial Geography
has just honored him with one of its
medals. It occurred to him that
tho useful products of Tahiti, that
large and lovely island of the So
ciety Group in Polynesia, could be
greatly increased by judicious im
portations from the flora of other
countries. So he laid a considera
ble part of the world under contri
bution, and in course of time many
hundreds of foreign plants were do
ing their best to take root in the
soil of Tahiti. Among his collec
tions were rubber trees from Mada
gascar, ebony, teak, and red cedar
from Australia, tobacco from Java
and the Rio Grande, cotton from
Georgia, hemp from Manila, cinna
mon and nutmegs from the Malay
Archipelago, grapes from Madeira
and Teneriffe, coffee from Formosa,
and a very large variety of grasses
and fruit trees. Ho established a
nursery near the chief town at Ta
hiti, and he has already proved that
the larger part of his plants will
succeed in this favored island.
Grape culture, which he introduced,
is already beginning to enrich the
country, and it Is said that through
the efforts of this man alone the as
pects of tho vegetable kingdom in
Tahiti are undergoing a remarkable
change for the better. fS. F. Mer
