In saying "Mr. Fornaudcr being
himself a Catholic, so far as he was
not a free-thinker," the number of
tho "Friend" just issued repeats an
error which others had committed
before, and which had been corrected
by correspondents in the columns
of the Buli.i:tin It is a matter of
no consequence whether the late
learned and esteemed Judge For
nandcrwasa Catholic or a Protest
ant. Wo respected him in life for
bis superior qualities of head and
heart, and we revere his memory
now that he hns joined the great
majority for the same reason,
whether he adheicd to the Catholic
or the Piotestant branch of the
Christian church. But all the same,
"so far as he was not a free
thinker," the late Judge was a Pro
testant. He was the son of a
Lutheran cleigyman, and was him
self intended and educated for the
same profession, and certainly up to
within a few years of his death
adhered to the same faith, "so far
as he waB not a free-thinker." Our
authority for this positive assertion
respecting the deceased gentleman's
religious training and belief, is he.
himself. He so informed the wiiter.
And we certainly think bo knew
better what was his religion than
the "Friend" or anybody else. Ac
cording to his own admission, he
felt a special sympathy for the
Catholics of this country, although
not endorsing the distinctive tenets
of Unit chinch, because of the per
secution which culminated in the ex
pulsion of the late Bishop Maigict
from the islands ; and there aie other
Piotcstants, yet liviim here, whoso
feelings run in the suuie channel.
An appeal was made a short time
ago, through the columns of this
paper, by a correspondent, to the
humane and charitable, on behalf
of an unfortunate fellow man who
is unable to earn bis bread by rea
son of having lost his eye-sight. It
was not in vain. A person with a
heart of sympathy took the matter
in hand and went around among the
people soliciting donations. The
people inclined their ears, opened
their hearts, and gave of the con
tents of their pockets. The result
was a purse of close upon $150,
which has been handed to the un
fortunate man, and for which ho
and his family are truly grateful.
Let this be said for the people of
Honolulu : they are never deaf to
the call of charity. Whatever po
litical feelings may engender strifes
and produce bitter words and hard
feelings, appeal to their practical
sympathies on behalf of some poor
fellow in distress or need, and there
is a cheerful l espouse.
Well, the person above referred
to and his family have, by tho be
nevolence of tho public, been re
lieved of present want and imme
diate anxiety. Possibly he and
they, in the fullness of their joy and
gratitude, may feci no concern for
the future. But the sum contribut
ed, with the most careful economy,
is not going to last very long. If
when it is exhausted another appeal
should be made to the community,
the community, no doubt, will
f again checrfuly respond.
But should it be necessary to
jnako another appeal? We think
not. This man was the servant of
the Honolulu Iron Works Company,
"and served the company faithfully
,and conscientiously for eighteen or
Pjventy years, 'wc believe. In its
service he lost his Bight, the great
est misfortune that can happen to
mnn. Tho Iron Works sboulil pen
sion ami sun'port him the balance of
liis life. Tills would be no more
than nn net of just, consideration.
The company is lich anil well ablo
to do it. Moreover, wo nro not dis
posed to believe that anything inoro
than tho suggestion is required to
inuuee its acceptance.

Editor Buu.i-.tin: I notice that
there are to be two Presidential
elections held in this city on Tues
day next. Would it not bo bettor
if only one were held, and that
within the vicinity of the Post Of
fice? In 188-i the election va3 held
in tho store now occupied by J. E.
Brown & Co., and was a most con
venient place. Too polling places
fliight cause confusion.
A CLASS OF BILKS.
Editoh Bulletin: The practice
of employers allowing their servants
to draw wages in advance in order
that the latter may deprive their
creditors of tho only means they
have of collecting their just dues,
by garnishee process, is anything
but commendable. Unfortunately
Honolulu is infested with a class of
dead beats, who, having no piop
erty worth attaching, manage
through some pretence or other, to
leave their employers in debt, or
will run up bills which they never
intend to pay. I know several of
this class now in Honolulu who make
a practice of living by such debased
means. Surely no respectable em
ployer would willingly assist such
system of thievery by placing obsta
cles in the way of collecting bills
due by such scoundrels. It is to
be hoped that employers will assist
in rooting out such an undesirable
class of bilks, and confer a benefit
on tho whole community.
DARWIN ON MISSIONARIES.
Editor Bulletin: I noticed
Friday's "Advertiser" about
quarter jof a column of quasi-editorial
drivel as to Mr. Darwin's
high opinion of Missionaries. Allow
me to suggest that if the illustiious
gentleman had ever run across the
genus "Missiojiaiy" that has taken
loot in our fertile soil he would find
that they differ matciinlly and radi
cally from those self sacrificing and
devout toilers of other lands, who
have done so much for the cause of
Christianity. Our stock of "Mis
sionaries" is an essentially diffctcnt
bleed, whose self-sacrificing efforts
in Hawaii nei liavo been to enrich
themselves at the expense of the
poor natives, and who by hook or
by crook now &eek to run the whole
politics of this country in accord
ance with their own sweet will. Our
next elections may disappoint their
fondest hopes. N.

CHINESE IMMIGRATION TO RUSSIA.
A correspondent writes under
date September 21th: "The paia
graph from the 'Nord' telcgiaphed
by your Brussels correspondent and
published in the 'Times' to-day can
h.irdly be ofllcially inspired, for
Russian olllcials who arc in a posi
tion to inspire tho 'Nord' usually
know peifectly what they write
about, while tho paragraphist in the
'Nord' is clearly not acquainted
with the conditions of Chincac immi
gration either into Siberia or to
Australia. He thinks that in conse
quence of the cessation of Chinese
immigration to America and Austra
lia it will so increase to Siberia as
to 'overwhelm the Scattered Sibe
rian population and denationalize
tho Asiatic frontiers of the empire.'
The fact is, the two immigrations
have, and, owing to the vast dis
tances which separate their sources,
can have no effect whatever on each
other. The labor immigration which
troubles America and Austialia has
its souice in Hongkong, which draws
its supply from tho fertile and popu
lous plains of tho two most southern
provinces, Kwangtung and, in a
smaller degieo, Fukflen. The immi
gration to Russia really originates
in Manchuria, peihaps 2,000 to 3,
000 miles away from Canton. The
Manchurian immigrants go origin
ally from the northern provinces of
Chihli and Shantung nnd settle over
tho wide plains of Manchuria nnd
Mongolia, whence some of them
straggle across the fiontier into tho
valley of tho Amour, where they
settle down to agiiculture. If all
emigration from southern piovmces
weic stopped to-moirow, it is doubt
ful whether a singlo Chinese the
moio would cioss the Russian
border. Tho story that Chinese
agents were studying the grounds in
Siberia in order to direct a current
of emigration theie is absuid on tho
face of it. Manchuria and Mongolia
which aie Chinese possessions, me
capable of holdingas many emigrants
as China is likely to send, and if
Chinese olllcials wanted to direct
emigration anywheie it would be to
theso regions, not to Sibeiiu, But
in truth, Chinese olllcials of all
grades arc profoundly indifferent
to einigiation of any kind, and to
suspect them of directing it toward
Siberia for political purposes is to
givo credit for far-seeing, and am
bitious designs which they nro quite
incapable of harboiing." London
If in making a pnssago you arc
warned by a rapidly falling baro
meter and'the veering of the wind
that you aie approaching unplea
santly near the vortex of a revolv
ing storm, yoti can quickly run a
fast ship into tho outer circle, and
in many cases what might other
wise piovo to be a disastrous gale
may be transformed into a fair
wiud. Again, should you be caught
in a heavy gale w ithout duo wai ning,
the great power of the fast ship rcn
deis her a much superior sea boat,
inasmuch as with the judicious use
of that power you are enabled to
keep your ship m the most favora
ble position all the Ljino, while a
ship of small power would bo con
tinually falling off and bringing the
sea abeam, rendering hcisclf liable
to suffer damage about the decks
as she came to the wind again.
In ordinary storms a fast ship
will get thiough the bad weather in
half the timo a slow one will, and
in dull, cloudy weather, such as
one meets at certain seasons of the
year, for days together without sun,
moon or stars, a fast ship, from her
greater speed, will be able to make
safer and more direct courses than
the slow one. In making land, you
are often ablo to save your day
light by a fast ship, and, in making
port, you may save the tide and en
ter, when a slow ship would have to
anchor outside and face all the con
tingencies that might arise in that
period. I quote these instances to
show why 1 am so fully convinced
in my own mind that the fast ship
is so much safer than the slow one,
and that in the former the risk is
minimized to passengers,
owners and underwriter.
THE FRUIT TRADE OF CALIFORNIA.
The British Consul atSan Fran
cisco, in the course of a report on
the agiiculture of California, refcis
to tho enoiiuous fruit trade of that
Stale. It pioduccs every kind of
fiuit thai giows in a semi-tropical
and tempciate climate among the
former aie the oiange, lemon, cit
lon, shaddock and other citrus
fiuits, the olive, pomegranate, fig,
banana, apiicol, nectarine, walnuts
and almonds, giapes, pioducing
wine and laisins; belonging to the
temperate zone are apples, peais,
plums, cherries peaches currants,
gooseberries, raspbcriics and straw-
benies. The green-fruit trado of
the State has increased enoimously;
in 1887 the trade in green fruit with
tho Eastern Stales amounted to
about ."5,000,000-pouiid weight.
The output of the vaiious canneries
in 188G amounted to about 30,000,
000 pounds, including 059,930 cases
of fruit, 203,500 of vegetables, and
22,500 of jellies and jams. The
catitnale for 1887 is 792,500 cases
of fiuit, with an average of about
45 pounds of fruit to the case. Of
these, 220,000 cases were peaches,
175,500 apiicols, 150,000 peais,
(10,000 cherries, -10,000 plums, 35,-'
000 grapes, 25,000 blackbcirics and
15,000 each strawberries and goose
beuies. The export of dried and
evaporated fruits and egetables is
also enormous. Thus the export
of grapes treated in this way m
1887 was 16,000,000 pounds, ap
ricots 3,000,000 jiounds, honey
1,310,000 pounds, French prunes
1,750,000 pounds, walnuts 1,500,
000 pounds, peaches, 1,750,000,
grapes 000,000 pounds, apples
(evaporated) 550,000, peaches
(evaporated) 1,250,000, almonds
500,000 pounds, plums 500,000
pounds and smaller quantities of
many other fruits. The growing of
gi.ipcs for laisins has proved a most
profitable crop, with a ready mar
ket for all that can be. made. Cal
iforuians believe that their raisin
crop will eventually drive the foreign
products from the markets of the
United States, and from tho statis
tics of tho trade the Consul is in
clined to believe that they will.
Tho wino production in 1887 was
13,000,000 gallons; 150,000 acres
of the State are planted with vines,
and not less than 90 per cent of
these are foreign vnricties. "That
the improvement in the quality of
wine produced is very marked there
can bo no doubt, and the former
California wine, with its disagree
able, barsh, foxy taste, is fast bo
coming a thing of the past. This
js duo to tho importation of the best
varieties of foieign vines and a
more careful system of cultivation,
manufacture and preset vatiou of tho
wine." The number of sheep m
the State was from four to four and
a half millions; the wool clip in
1851 was 175,000 pounds, nnd in
1870 it had reached 50,550,970
pounds. After this it fell off, and
in 1887 was 31,504,231 pounds, but
with a great improvement in the
quality. London Times.
The war wnyo has swept even
Switzerland. Her Military Budget
which was ll,000,000f ten years

THE NEXT CIVIL WAR.
It is an open question whether in
the next civil war undefended towns
will be attacked? In past wars they
have not been, but some think they
will bo in future that is to say,
they will bo given the option of pay
ing heavy sum.3 of money in a short
timo or suffering bombardment;
the idea being that the more money
obtained and tho greater misery
generally inflicted, the shorter will
bo tho duration of the war; and
this may, very possibly, be true.
That small cruisers of tho enemy
will, if they can, sink our merchant
shipping and leave the crows to take
their chance of sink or swim in their
own boats is moderately cei tain; for
such a ciuiser could neither afford
time to rescue the crews, space to
stow them, nor men of her own to
form a prizo ciew. fckwood's
