Complaints have readied this of
fice of the inconvenience which has
been occasioned during the last day
or two to persons driving vehicles
on those streets where the water
pipes are being laid. Several streets
have been blocked at one end, to
wit: Alakca, Hotel and i5eretania
(not all simultaneously) and left
open at the other, with no indica
tion whatever that through tralllc is
stopped, the result being that one
enters the street and after driving
its full length makes the discovery
that it is impassable, the turning
space in some instances being very
limited. It would be :i simple mat
ter to place a notice at the open end
which would save people the un
pleasantness of being "sold." It is
hoped these remarks may have the
effect of inducing those in charge to
take the very natural precaution
A new order of business lias been
adopted by the Supreme Court at
the present term, which will he ap
preciated by members of the bar,
jurors, clients, and witnesses, be
cause it saves the annoyance of un
certainty as to when each and all of
these classes will be required to ap
pear in Court. This implies also
that it saves valuable time to all
concerned, which has been unneces
sarily robbed from people under the
old way. The new system is al
ready working well in having the
banco calendar lead off and bo put
through without interruption or
variation according to the numerical
order of tho cases, Barristers have
only to ascertain how the business
is progressing in banco from hour to
hour, to be aware almost to a min
ute when their respective cases will
be called. Jurors have been noti
fied in advance that their prcsenco
- would not be required the first week
of the term, hence are able to go in
peace of mind from morning to
morning one to his olllce, another
"to his store, one behind the counter
Wiuul another to his work bench. Jt
"is to bo presumed that the other di
visions of the calendar will be gono
through in .the same precise method
Hawaiian, mixed, and foreign
jury; civil, criminal, ami divorce.
Jt is safe to say that hitherto half
.the burden of the jury panel has
been the lime wasted in oboying

THE BIBLE IN THE PliBLiC
KniTon UtLi.i.TiN : Ignorance is
bliss, hut not lor a two-star brand
from lvohala, wntiug about school
affairs. See "Advertiser" October
The following sentence is a speci
men: "A reference to Hawaiian
history will Mmw, T think, tl'iit tho
Bible 'v.v banished from the public
schools on the accession of Mr. A.
Fornander, a Catholic, to the oflicc
of school inspector, some 25 years
ago, more or loss."
It is a pity and a shame to see
the name of our old venerable .Judge
A. Fornander, now dead, the author
of "The Polynesian Eace" and the
best friend of the Hawaiian I In
over had, dragged down in such
reckless style. He deserves a
monument as well as Dr. Ilille
brand or perhaps more so, and ever
good Hawaiian demands due honor
to his memory.
kludge Fornander was a Lutberian
Protestant, born in Sweden. If he
banished the Bible from thp schools,
I have no doubt that he had good
teasons for doing so, as he knew the
Bible (Old Testament) like a scholar
and he was the best judge of the
character of tho Hawaiians and
Ax Old Swede.
H. G. H.'S LAST REPLY.
Eimon Uui.i.KTix: I have very
carefully read 3Ir. Sing's answer in
the licu.irriN- for the 20th of Sept
ember, and hope that you will allow
me space for the following remarks.
Mr. Sing asscits that I have not
found any instructions in his first
epistle. Now, 1 claim that I found
1st. That Mr. Sing claims he re
ptesents the leading Chinese, and
that he consequently exactly ex
presses the sentiments of those he
2d. That Mr. Sing in plain Eng
lish tells the members of the Legis
kituie that they went "to the in
quiry with a preconceived notion,
the truth or falsehood of which they
took no pains to nsceitain." In
other words, he accuses them of
d. Mr. Sing said: "Thee men
(lnioles) belong to a sot, who are
well accustomed to putting up cam
paign funds when they think any
political point is to be gained, etc.
In plain language, he accuses them
of being bribe giv eis.
Mb. That 51 1 Sing use-, threaten
ing language more than once.
olli. That Mr. Sing cannot ab
stain fiom pe.sonal attacks, and
using words as "empty-headed not
knowing what is good for the coun
try. In my answer, Mr. Editor, I did
not use any expressions thai can be
taken as personal attacks, :. . I only
mentioned facts, citing frequently
Mr. Sing's own words. I did that
purposely, so that J could not be
accused of perverting what Mr.
l'urmit me, Mr. Editor, t say a
few words about Mr. Sing's reply to
my answer. He writes: "Jie (11.
G. N.) does lint seem to hae found
instruction in it." I have above in
lew words repeated what instructions
1 found. "His letter is all talk
without thought," well, about that
I will let the public judge.
May be Mr. Sing did not
like that 1 exposed his threats
and repealed his words about liaole
bribers. I will hero take the liberty
to mention that Mr. Sing seems to
bo very indignant about tho China
men being accused ol revolting 1o
bribery, and may bo helms a found
ation for it what he probably scoffs
at is the smallncss of the bribe said
to have been given. If it had been
50,000 (or $71,000) instead of $f)0
may be he would have felt diffei
cmt. That I am "always writing in the
papers, and talking at meeting when
I get a chance" is only what I have
a perfect right to, and it Mr. Sing
don't like it, ho is at liberty to bIiuI
his eais when I talk, or his eyes
when I write.
That Mr. Sing himself was pres
ent in the hegislaluio when the
bribery case was discussed, is natur
al enough, but that he, and he alone
knows more about it, and under
stands it better than the Legislature
is very positively iiBcerted, and 1
will therefore repeat hero what 1
said in my former article. It is an
insult to every member of the Legis
lature. J asked Mr. Sing tho names of the
linoles who furnishes funds for poli
tical and other purposes (Sec .'id as
above). I!o did not answer that at
all, but willingly evades it. I did
not ask him the names of those who
have leased land or other property to
Chinese, Ihtfy are all well known. 1
havo put my question the proper
way: "Give us the names of tho
uaole bribe giver.
My question: "Are we dancing
on a volcano'" referred simply to
tho threats, and to nothing else, so
that we arc troubled, as mischief
seems to be brewing against us, not
attains!, the Chinese.
' Mr. Sing write: "lie (11. (5. N.)
and people of his kind have
not enough at stake to bo hurt" 1
will to this simply say, that I have
my family to support ; and that a
Chinaman don't understand what
that means, is not surprising. Per
mit me to say, thai that single word
"Family," has been the cause of
many a bloody struggle against op
pression in different shapes, and in
different countries, it has saved
many it country from being con
quered by a foe, it stirs the very
soul of every while man, ol what
1 aid in my article: "There arc
men and families enough here ready
to occupy your places." Yes, I ad
mit T wrote o, and 1 mean it too.
Tho meaning it simply this: Mr.
Sing thinks the country will go to
the dogs if all Chinamen should leave
it, there would be nobody to occupy
the lands and till the ground. To
this 1 said, there are them here
ready to Till their places. It is far
from me to say the Chinamen ought
to be driven out, nnd I did not say
if Look at what the Portuguese
can do ! I have seen many a piece
of land, so barren looking that even
a Chinaman looked at it with dis
dain, tilled by Portuguese, and
they have succeeded splendidly.
Take a walk under Punchbowl hill,
and sec what has been done there.
Mr. Sing thinks that he under
stands better what is "the substan
tial block" than the planters. Per
mit me to have my doubts about
that the planters have a little more
experience in that than Mr. Sing, I
presume. The last words in Mr.
Sing's answer, I think ought to have
been as follows: "It would be a
very short sighted policy to get rid
of the SDtind foundation and trust
the welfare of Hawaii to the rice
alone. If my (Chinese) fellow eiti
:'.en.s would think a little more about
the practical part of the matter, I
believe we should soon hear the last
of the loud talk."
Mr. Editor, rice is admitted free
of duty into the U. S. Suppose now
that America would drop the duty
entirely on rice, or would exclude it
from our treaty, what then about
the lice industry? Then Mr. Sing
would find that his solid foundation
for Hawaii rested on sand. Bice is
used to a greater extent in America
than in any European country or in
Canada, whereas the contrary is the
case with sugar.
In my reply I wrote: "They must
be a very corrupt set, which 1, how
ever, hope or believe is not the
case." Mr. Sing seems to have
overlooked that expression of mine.
What I meant, and what I mean is
simply this; 1 make a distinction
between Chinamen. I do not mean
those icsjiectablc residents hcre,that
are landowners or arc married and
have raised a family of their own, 1
do not for a single moment wish
them out of the country, but I do
think that it is a bad thing for the
country to have the unmarried hor
des of Chinese coolies here, it is
against them I am writing, and I
have heard respectable Chinamen
express themselves in the same way.
It, is the thousands of unmarried
Chinese that are a curse to this
country, as well as to any other
were they arc present in such large
numbers. I will repeat it: I do not
believe the respectable class of Chi
nese to be a corrupt set, and where
1 use the word Chinaman it lefers
solely and only to the lower classes,
to the coolies.
1 can give many illustrations about
the moral influence of tho Chinese,
about tho dark ways and their cun
ning triiks, about their mode of liv
ing, but this article is
A lew words more,
and 1 will be through.
I think the
question about icligion better be
kept out, that only irritates, and I
did not mention it in 1113' answer to
Mr. Sing. The language in Mr.
Sing's epistles are, to say the least,
very "glibly" and I firmly believe
that be has not written his articles
himself, in fact, it strikes me as ex
traordinary that Mr. Sing under
stands English so thoroughly that he
only has the riidil understanding of
proceedings in the Legislature. .With
Ills knowledge of English, tho place
as interpreter ought to have been
given to him.
J consider this my last answer to
Mr. Sing. I have no inclination to
keep on a controversy with him or
any other Pro-Chinobe, my object in
answering Mr, Sing was only to
point out the fallac3' of his expres
sions, the danger of his threats, his
insulting remarks about bribery by
haoles, and his insults to the Legis
lature. A few general remarks, Mr. Edi
tor, I hopo you will allow 1110 space
for my icmarks about Mr. Torn
Dow's threats has drawn forth an
epistle from that gentleman, at least
one over hib signature. Ho men
tions my article, and that is a sure
proof that my expressions were well
founded. Ho seems to have a nry
low opinion about my knowledge
well, I can stand that. I know that
China lias a largo army, 1 know that
Chinese ha a largo navy, 1 know
that China can ami will protect her
biibjects wherever thoy are. I know
that not because Mr. Tom Dow tells
mo go, but becauso it has been
trutghl inc In tho school. 1 know
also Unit the Chinaman hos driven
tho natives out of their tnro patches,
that ho has assumed the manufac
ture of poi, that he has driven them
from many of their fishing grounds
that tho natives have a bickness
called mai pake, that he has taught
natives the art of smoking opium,
that he has spread immorality, just
because ho has no feeling for family
ties, that he don't assimilate with
other nationalities, that he is a state
in the state, that China is not open
lor foreigners in the sense this and
other civilized countries arc to them,
that foreigneis travelling in Chiua
are not protected (proof travellers
murdered n few months ago), that
he never would have raised tho
islands tu the present level of eivil
izalion, that a pake Government
(T. G.'s own expression) would
have raised tho native race. 1 ad
mit that tho whites Imvc brought
sickness here, but which is tho
worst, the haolo's or tho pake's can
best bo answered by pointing to
Molokai. The haoles have brought
liquors and the Chinaman sam-shoo,
tho haoles have built railroads,
steamers, sailingvessels, electric
light, sugar mills, erected good
schools, where morality is taught,
made travel easy and safe (murder
by ? on Hawaii), easy communica
tions with the rest ol the world
and so ad infinitum.
I should like to ask Mr. Tom Dow
what China would do if a great
number of Americans went there,
and settled all over tho country?
They would not be tolerated. Very
few harbors arc open to commerce,
and those that are open, were made
so by force.
Nobody has talked about driving
tho Chinamen out, and therefore
the threatening language is entirely
out of place. Those of them who
are here must have .liberty to stay
and protection of the laws, but we
don't want any more to come.
If the Chinamen could aquire the
habits of the haoles, live like a
liaole, dtcss like him, all would bo
different. That is what tho Japs
are doing, and therefore never a
word is said against them.
Mr. Ming Hym and Mr. Tom
Dow ought to confine their writings
to lacts as they exist, and not sneer
at everybody and everything, and
the good elements of the Chinese
ought to impress their coolie coun
trymen with the necessit3' of keep
ing within bounds, and to do so, will
be to their own interest.
Thanking you Mr. Editor for
the space you have allowed me, I
remain yours, II. G. N.
