A POINT OF AGREEMENT.
There is at least one point of
agreement between ourselves and
our morning contemporary. Our
neighbor docs not want any "boss"
in Hawaiian politics: neither do We.
The "boss," as applied to politics,
is a decidedly objectionable person
age. Where the "boss" is, there is
the "machine" also; where the ma
chine is, it is absurd to talk of its
votaries being "ficc and independ
ent electors ;" and c believo all
electors should be "free and inde
pendent." This machine ceitainly
came into operation at the last gen
' eral election. The Bullltik pro
tested against it, and was roundly
abused by tnc Reform party for
doing so. In our opinion, the domi
ciling of machine politics and their
concomitants in this country would
be a great misfortune. The "Ad
vertiser" contains the information
"that it has been determined in
, certain quarters that a boss we shall
t have," and inferentially the ma
chine. Tlic candidate or candidates
are said to be on hand and already
in training. To us this is news, and
wc aie sceptical of its accuracy.
Organization may be as important
and useful in riolitics as in many
other affairs of life; but when it
"degenerates to the "boss" and the
"machine," we are better without it.
FAST DRIVING AGAIN.
Fast driving through our public
streets is a subject which has fre
quently received attention in the
columns of this paper more, in
the opinion of some people, than the
j'impoitance of the matter demands;
yet we feel compelled to again recur
to the often-hained-unon subject:
' .fnv tlio r-vil still Pacini h. anil nxistR.
f too, without any apparent abatc
ment. '4 On Saturday night last a public
iiiexpress, with occupants other than
fethe driver, came down Nuuanu
X street and turned the corner into
jfe Beretania street at a pace that was
g positively dangerous. Had any one
Kbeeii in the. way at the turning
m of the corner, it would have
been next to impossible to have
X avoided being run over. The blood

. over a lady and her little girl on King
f street bridge, early in the same evc
- ning, through rapid driving; and
Js when expostulated with by a gentle
Pf man on the bridge at tho time, the
l driver retorted with insolence, in
ipBtead of offeiing the humble apol
WL ogy which his conduct called for.

various missionary rules smile.
There aie none so blind as those
who will not see" and although the
smile and rotund figure of the jolly
Queen street "boss" of the piesent
missionary paity, is not by any
means small, or his grip on them
light, they profess not to know of it.
Nor can they remember the rule of
the Merchant street "boss," who
bossed them with such a rod of iron,
that before Spreckels took hold of
matters it was not safe for them to
tiado horses or call their souls their
own, without consulting this mighty
"boss." L. K.
AN AMERICAN ANSWERED.
EniTOii Bulletin: Kef erring to
the lctteiof "American" in your'B
of Saturday, I wish to say that the
place selected by the Committee of
Ameiican Residents to poll the
votes of their countrymen is good
enough for me. When the vote
was polled here four years ago, it
was run by Americans, and there
was no thought of others either
than Americans voting or of hold
ing the election on other than
American piemises. If this were
an English election we should ex
pect that it would bo held in an
English store, but as it is an Ameii
can election, an American store is
good enough for
A Guxuixi: Amkmcan.
Euitok Bullltin: It is always
a matter of regiet to myself to see
anonymous newspaper articles, be
cause they are likely to nin into in
ective and personalities which none
but the writers enjoy. At the risk
of incurring the uh.uge of seeking
undue prominence, and also of per
sonal maligning, I venture to write
briefly concerning the criticism
which has appeared in your columns
against American missionaries and
their descendants, and the mission
ary party of these Islands.
Several months since, you kindly
published a letter in which I stated
my opinion of the hospitality, the
public spirit andjself-denying geuei
osity, (which is the only geneiosity
which I legaid as binceic), of the
old missionaries and their families.
That they were fiee from faults,
that they made no mistakes, is more
than any one pictends. That all
the forms of religious doctrine which
they inculcated, or the methods of
governing one's daily life on which
shey insisted, would net "have coin
cided with my own, or with the
views which to-day arc largely en
tertained by CalviniBts or Congrega
tionalists, is quite true. That fact,
however, does not detract from their
real merits, or fiom the value of
their work. Pci haps a certain de
gree of rigidity of dectrine and
teaching, of bigotiy if you please,
was required to meet the conditions
of life in these Islands forty years
But I leave to better, but not to
more sympathetic, hands to trace
I beg to ask you whether your
dislike of the hypocrite and the pha
lisce, and your sympathy for the
publican and the sinner, in which
sympathy and dislike I heartily
agree, have not led you and also
some of your correspondents into
the error of misjudging a large por
tion of this community? I am con
vinced that you arc in no sense in
accord with those iwho seek to im
poso on our society a freedom of
living, which rauy properly bo call
ed licentiousness, such as is permit
ted in no other lcspectahlo commun
ity, And yet ifT is true that tho
class to which I refer aie the most
loud-mouthed in. their denunciations
of the "damned missionarhs," as
they habitually term them.
But as to missionary influence in
tho presont government, to which I
understand that you tako exception,
what is it? who aio the mission
ary ofllcials? and which of them do
you think ought to bo removed from
As I look through the govern
ment buildings and ofllces, I see
hut few who are connected or even
in sympathy with missionaries. Tho
premier, Mr. Win. L. Green, lias
never piofessed or shown such ten
dencies. Nor lias tho Attorney
General, Mr. 0. W. Ashford. If
his sentiments uccord with his
brother's, there is no more bitter
anti-missionary. The Minister of
Foreign Affairs, Mr. Austin; the
Collector-General, Mr. Cleghoru;
tlio Postiiinsler-UeiirJfnl, lit, WiM
denherg ; and all the array of Gov
ernment clerks nnd employees, with
tho exceptions of Messrs. Alexan
der, Kmcrsou and Howell, aiohaidly
to bo called "stiaight-laced," or to
bo accused of missionary propensi
ties. Tho same may correctly bo
said of tho Supremo Court Justices,
except Mr. Judd, and of all the isl
and judges and of tho clerks of the
Courts. No more valuable work
could be done than that of Prof.
Alexander, of tho Government Sur
vey Bureau. No more valuable
public work and no more generous
whole-souled charity, both in act
and in thought, can well bo shown
them in the daily life and examplo
of such unpretending quiet men,
who hate to hear or sec their own
names in print, as the missionary
sons of the reverend fathers Alex
ander, Wilcox, Parker and others,
whom I could easily name. These.
are not narrow-soulcd, bigoted, pha
rasaical, grasping men, and every
man, woman and child who knows
them, knows that they are not.
A mean hypocrite is bad enough
per sey but his occasional presence
with a set of people who in tho main
are upright, sincere, and as worthy
of regard as our weak humanity of
ten permits or deserves, ought not
to lead us to regard him as a typo.
He is I admit, worthy of all con
tempt; but not of contempt which
leads to loss of faith in great, high
spirited, honorable and true men
and women as were the original Pu
ritans and their descendants of tho
Ameiican missionaries in Hawaii.

Under the heading of "Discipline
on an American Man-of-war," an
English paper contains the follow
ing: During a recent cruise of the
United States man-of-war Michigan
a sailor, who is a Chicago man, at
tempted to throw an exhausted quid
of tobacco over the rail into the wa
ter. His aim was bad, and the quid
fell on the deck. An officer observ
ed it. lie would not allow the sailor
to touch it, but ordered the entire
crew to rig up a gun tackle. The
gun tackle is a hawser 3J incites
thick, and weighs 2,500 pounds.
Being seldom, if ever used, it was
btowed away in the hold and cover
ed up. To get it on deck and rig it
up is a long, hard task. But the
gun tackle was rigged up, and the
commanding ofllcer attached to it a
silk tin cad. He made a loop in tho
thread, lassoed the quid of tobacco,
made it fast, nil hands made a long
pull and a strong pull, aud the quid
of tobacco was hoisted overboard.
Then the gun tackle was taken clown
and stowed away in the hold. It re
quited cleen hours of hard work to
get the quid overboard, and it is the
opinion of the commanding ofllcer
that no more quids of tobacco will
bo tin own on the deck of the Michi
gan for wo in c time to come.
The double-deck stages on Fifth
avenue, New York, seemed to hold
their popularity, six new ones hav
ing been put in sen ice this week to
answer the demand. The roof

called, arc most liked in pleasant
