EMPEROR FREDERICK'S DIARY.
One of the moat exciting topics
in Germany and in Europe, when
we last heard from tho outside
world, was the late Emperor Fred
erick's diary. The diary is said to
have been published without either
llismarck or the present Emperor
having been consulted. Oilicial and
political circles expicss great sur
prise at the publication. Seini
ollicial journals characterize it as a
great indescretion, while papers not
within the same circle take the oppo
site view. The publication seems
to have had the effect of greatly
elevating the late Emperor in the
estimation of the German people,
and indeed of the thoughtful and
humane of all nations.
Thu man's true character appears
more truly and fully in his private
diary than was manifest in his ofll
cial acts and public life, and it is a
character which wins admiration and
love. The diary bespeaks a man of
large and kind heait, sympathetic,
generous, noble, and overflowing
with good-will towards humankind.
The diary in commenting on the
fact that each side in the Fianco
German war as in all other wars
appealed to Heaven in its own be
half, says, "It is really a piece of
irony on the message of good-will
that each party calls on God to aid
its righteous cause. In every suc
cess we incline to prove by it the
support of Heaven against our oppo
. nents." That is so! Each belli
gerent, always considers itself irr the
right, and appeals for divine assist
ance. Absurd on its face!
REPLY TO HAWAIIAN CITIZEN.
Eimtok Hui.i.rniN: Hawaiian ci
tizen replies to me irr the columns
of the morning paper of the 28th
nit. I am glad to llnd that iir this
reply (which cannot at any rate
have cost him any money as it is
written in such bad English) he
confesses to be the party referred to
in my letter in the Nuuxtin of the
28th, and described by mc as one
of the Portuguese of Macao, who
peihaps could not get even salt
shrimps arrd cheap flour to cat, arrd
was glad to get away from the place
and become a Hawaiian citizen. My
time is twice as valuable as Hawai
ian citizen's and I suggest that irr
fairness ho ought to como to my resi
dence bringing with him a steno
grapher, as soon as he can make it
convenient, arrd then the several
matters about which we differ shall
bo discussed, and the arguments of
each taken down for publication, so
that the public may be able to see
whose side lias the best of it and so
to judge who is in the right. If
Hawaiian Citizen does not accept
my challenge, the controversy so
far as I am concerned will come to
an end. Yours,

MORALS OR DOLLARS?
Editoii Buu.ktix: I have been
reading two articles in tho Iiui.M-.TiN,
one signed 'Patriot" and the other
signed with a Chinese name, and
both articles appear to nre to ile
sorve their signatures. Jt mtij' be
that the former was a iittlo senti
mental and full of ocstacies (the3o
expressions remind mo of Opium),
but tlio latter was so much more
.w m..jimU raw n i jytamwaari
vulgar and commonplace and no
thing but a slander on tho Portu
guese and the Anglo-Saxon race.
These two aiticles before me I ask:
Since when aic the Chinese coolies
fellow subjects to other racen? 1
notice thatlUr. Monting undciMarids

which lrc can put in hi stomach and
he does not know that I hero k alvo
a consumption ol ilnlldng ami Chi
nese mains, of furniture and crock
ery, etc. The little luxuries enjoyed
liy 1 lie Uliilioe, besides opium
amounted to about Sinu,Oi)() for tho
year 1887, according to Custom
House Statistics, imported from
China (low valuation). Meanwhile
the imports from Portugal amount
to a rnerc trille. These arc diUistt
The Portuguese do uot consume
nuieh poi,nor do the Anglo-Saxons;
it is mostly used by natives. The
rice can be just ai well oxported to
the States as we export our sugars.
If the latter produce will be entirely
consumed by Chinese they would be
a little sweeter. "We export sugar
and import Hour, that is Peciproeity.
As long as I have read the news
papers, 1 never saw such a stupid
sentence as the following:
"1 suppose from the way he re
fers to importing from the States
that 1'atriot thinks it is much better
for the country to have import trade
with America, than with China.
That may be tlio idea of firms who
trade only with the States, but the
value of any trade to the country in
general depends entirely on its pro
fitableness." Mr. M. evidently does not know
that we have a Reciprocity Treaty
with the United States and that it is
only fair to give the preference to
the United States when importing,
lint that the value of any trade to
the country depends entirely upon
its profitableness is sheer nonsense.
Profit to whom? to tire country?
"What does the country gain by im
portation from China? Could we
not do without it? Is it recipro
city? I give it up.
Mind you, just on account of our
Reciprocity Treaty the Chinamen
should keep quiet and bo sensible.
Suppose the duty on rice, should be
taken off, where would our China
men be and Mr. M. their spokes
man? Just sonic more stupid agi
tation like that and every American
will beseech the United States' Gov
ernment to exclude rice from our
J have lo thank Mr. M. for the
explanation, that the Chinese are
much better customers of the Iioston
meichants than the Portuguese.
This solves a riddle lor me in regard
to lioston merchants, but in regard
to San Francisco merchants bis as
sertions are not true. The Portu
guese import from California : wines,
eatables and clothing for their own
use, hut what tho Chinese import
from there, with the exception of a
few Chinese goods, is mostly intend
ed for sale and lo be consumed by
Poituguese, Anglo Saxons and na
tives. Mr. M.'s slur on the Christian
iaitli just as well bits the Uoston as
the San Francisco merchant. Uir
fortunatcl' the Patriot has mention
ed "Christian families" and this
verily brings out the wrath of the
The Patriot enjoys himself in
ecstacies about families and the
Chinaman smiles (blandly) and
knows better. I am sorry that Chi
nese gentleman M. touches this
most delicate point so roughly, but
his unscrupulous remarks provoke
Mr. M. has no doubt seen in Pa
triot's letter that he only referred to
Chinese coolies, nearlyallsinglo men,
nd not once to those few Chinese
families which are an exception. I
agree with him on this point and
wish expressly to exclude all re
spectable Chinese families from the
following remarks. The families of
Goo Kim, L. Ahlo, Ain, Akima,
Alee, and a number of others
are as respectable in my eyes as
those of any other nationality.
But Mr. M. speaks lor the coolies
and stirs the mud. Even if a Blue
Ribbon man should not stand up for
their defence, he cannot disprove
that "Immorality is the root of all

what Mr. Monting insinuates and
admits, though onesided, only blam

All Christian gentlemen ought to

ODD FELLOWS ASSEMBLY IN LOS
Tho Califomian City of the Angels
has enjoyed the honor of entertain
ing the Sovereign Grand Lodgo of
the Independent Order of Odd Fel
lows. The proceedings commenced
on Monday, September 17th, ami
on the following day there was a
pioeession of .1,000 members of the
Ordei. At least 150,000 persons
were in the city, including repre
sentatives from every state nnd ter
ritory in the Union, fionr the domin
ion of Canada, from the Hawaiian
kingdom nird from Australia. In
cluding the numerous vehicles the
proecsion was two miles in length.
Tho grand olllcurs appeared in
splondid uniforms, and many of
them were mounted on handsome
and spirited horses. Escort duty
was performed by the Seventh Cali
fornia Regiment of the National
Guai d, which presented a fine mili
tary bearing. Next came several
cantons of the Patriarchs Militant,
or highest rank of the Odd Fellows,
under command of Licutenant-Gen-cral
John C. Underwoo'd. The uni
form and banners of the Cantons
were superb, and the Chevaliers
marched like veteran soldiers. The
costly standard of Los Angeles Can
ton was adorned with pearls and
precious stones. A number of en
campments and subordinate lodges
came next in their appropriate or
der; and the remainder of the pro
cession consisted of carriages for
the daughters of Rcbekah, delegates
from other stales, members ol the
Grand Lodge and other distinguish
At various points along the line
of march, beautifully decorated
arches were erected, and all the
principal buildings were tastily trim
med with flags, bunting, inscrip
tions and devices pertaining to the
order. At headquarters the visitors
wore freely supplied with all the
fruits produced in Southern Califor
nia. Citizens not belonging to the
order vied with Odd Fellows in lav
ish hospitality. Many of the visi
tors were supplied with cheap ex
cursion tickets to neighboring towns
and cities, where fraternal greetings
The services of General Under
wood in organizing the soldierly
rank of Patriarch Militant were duly
appreciated, and with unanimous
consent the General was elected
Grand Sire the highest honor con
ferred 1)3' the Sovereign Lodge. I
do not know whether a Canton has
yet been organized in Honolulu. If
not, this select degree should be in
troduced without delay. It stands
at tfie summit of Independent Odd
Fellowship, and is a distinction to
which members of subordinate
may properly aspire.
Never in the past has Los An
geles witnessed such a magnificent
display, and the enthusiasm thus
aroused will lend to increase the
prosperity of this iavoied munici
pality. Jn closing, allow me to in
form your readers that through
tickets are now sold for a lirst-class
passage between Los Angeles and
Honolulu. A. B. "W.
The tall, giizzlcd form of Rear
Admiral L. A. Kimberly was seen at
the Occidental the other day. The
Admiral came from Honolulu in the
Dolphin, and has asked to be reliev
ed from further service in the Paei
cific Squadron on the ground of ill
health, lie will undoubtedly soon
be retired. Kimberly lias had a no
table career. He is a bachelor and
very eccentric. He is also very
rich, for he belongs to that Kimber
ley family which settled in Chicago
in the thirties, bought land and
grew up with the cit'. The Admi
ral is thought to be worth consi
derably more than a million.
Kimberley won his greatest re
nown, however, as the First Lieu
tenant of Admiral Farragut's flag
ship, the Hartford, in which he
served from December, 1800, until
the old, battle-scarred ship went out
ol commission, in 18l)o. In all the
actions irr which the Hartford was
engaged Kimberly commanded her
crew and battery, and nobly were
they handled. Ho was a very ec
centric man, a perfect recluse in his
daily life, rarely speaking even to
his associates, lie was a stern dis
ciplinarian almost a martinet, in
fact but bis subordinates admired
his good qualities notwithstanding.
At the time when oillcers of Kim
bcrley's rank wero becking to com
mand small ships and gunboats, he
was repeatedly offered independent
command, but invariably declined.
lie regarded it a higher honor to be
First Lieutenant of tho Hartford
than to be Captain of a frigate.

FIGHTING THE" TRUSTS.
A New York evening paper of
September 22ml has the following:
The report of a meeting of repre
sentatives of the Sugar Trust and
of tho Wholesale Grocers' Associa
tion which appeared in tho papers
ltiat evening, can be supplemented
to-day by somo highly important in
formation regarding tlie Wholesale
r, , , . .." ,,., ., ...
Grocers Association. While this
organization goes under the name of
an association, it is practically a
combination made to meet monopoly,
and is a peculiar illustration of the
operation of the natural laws of
trade. The association was formed
for tho expressed purpose of fight
ing the sugar trust', but subsequent
ly it was determined to control
other branches of tlio grocery trade,
A proiniiient merchant informed a
rcpoitcr that the meeting yesterday
was tho second step to form a
powerful combination, both to con
trol the sugar trust and tho retail
grocery trade. The first step was
taken at a meeting some weeks ago,
and tho purposo was, by organizing,
to compel tho trust to ocll sugar

ciation, exclusively, al a rebate of
