' Pledged to neither Sret nor Party,
But established for ( " benefit of all.
WEDNESDAY, hOV. 7, 1888.
A PROPER STEP AND A WISE
The Board of Ilealth lias decided
to place a superintendent, other
than a member of that community,
in charge of the Leper Settlement
at Molokai. In our opinion this is a
proper decision. Piesumnbly this
superintendent will be invested with
powers superior to those entrusted
to members of the settlement who
have acted as superintendents in the
past. From the nature of the set
tlement and the peculiar character
of the duties of the position, this
would seem necessary. Not only is
this move of the Board calculated
to promote order, harmony, and due
observance of neeessary regulations ;
but a capable ana energetic super
intendent would probably piomote
..economj' also, by preventing waste
and extravagauee. Besides, it is
the opinion of some familiar with
"the locality, that the light kind of
man in chaige could make the set
t tlement to some extent self-supporting,
by raising on the lands there at
-least a poition of the food required
for the suppoit of the community,
the whole of which has hitherto had
to be brought from elsewhere.
Mr. C. B. Reynolds, who has been
for scveial jears in the service of
, the Board of Ilealth, is the gentle
man selected for the position, and
he 18 expecte'd to enter upon his new
duties at the beginning of the next
year. Judging from his work in the,
past and what we know of his quali
fications, we do not hesitate to ex
press the opinion that a better choice
could not have been made. He is a
man of clear judgment and untiring
Tencigy, possessing superior execu
tive ability ; prompt, decisive, and
fearless, shrinking from no duty,
however disagreeable ; and withal
kind and sympathetic. Mr. Rejr
nolds is just the man for the place,
and we confldentlj' expect that a few
months of his superintendence will
prove this assertion.
Edjtou Bui.lutin: This morn-
.ingfs "Advertiser" alludes to a
"hungry looking Canadian chap in'

'I must be the patty aimed at.
1 have always been under the im
pression that a newspaper that as
pired to a higher plane in journal
ism than that occupied by the
"Police Gazette" ' of New York and
the San Francisco "City Front,"
when they attacked a man used their
amunition against public men in
, ' their olllclal capacity, and that the
, private affairs of those who were not
servants of the public were not sub--,
Jject to public criticism or stabB in
tne uacic irom anonymous corres
As to the Auditor-Generalship, I
may say I have nevjjr asked for it or
pushed myself forward in any way
for any Government position, be
lieving that "the position should
seek the man and not man the posi-
f"tion." At the request of one of the
-cabinet I sent in an application for
. a vacant position, viz. : Registrar of
6' Conveyances.' A majority of the
k "cabinet decided on another man, and
isobar as I was concerned the matter
dropped. Two weeks afterwards the
Minister pf the Interior wrote me
goffering me a public appointment
hi' which X declined.
I was a member of the League,
Honolulu Rifles and the Reform
party, which put the present party
. in power, and all I ask in return is
to be let alone instead of being the
matk of cowardly anonymous writeis
in their party organ. i

THE " FRIEND " TO THE
KniTou Bumxtik: In reference
to Mr. Fornandcr, let me say that I
had no thought of dispaiagcment in
speaking of him as a Catholic. I
may easily have been mistaken as to
the fact. I am now informed, ap
parently on good autlioiity, that his
acknowledged Catholic sympathies
were partly duo to Catholic parent
age on one side. I have always te
garded him as an honorablo gentle
man as well as a learned nml nble
historian. Dr. Hyde is entitled to
the correction, that the allusion to
Mr. Fornandcr did not appear in his
communication, but in that of
Permit u brief notice of the strict
ures of the Bishop of Olba upon thu
"Friend.,' 1 would ask tho Bishop's
attention to the express qualification
of tho term "interlopers" by the
words "as far as tho schools arc
concerned," meaning tho "public
school system," as stated In the pre
ceding sentence. The contention of
the "Friend," whether just or not,
is that the Roman Catholic Church
is hostile to the public school system,
and that in consequence,, the action
of her clerg3, and tho part they
take as to those schools is not well
intcntioned and beneficent, but in
terfering and injurious. To have
characterized that clergy in their
general activity as "interlopers"
would certainly have been a piece of
insolence. I am sorry that the
Bishop should have charged the
"Friend" with it.
Upon the face of it, it must seem
rather improbable, that if tho
"friend" believed "that the Board
of Education built the the new
school on School sticet in order to
prevent the Poitugucso children
from going to St. Louis College," it
would have published such a fact,
or even "insinuated" it, when such
publication would make against our
side. The "Friend" would assure
the excellent Bishop, that it never
conceived such a thing, and never
heard of it before. We aic not in
the confidence of the Board of Edu
cation, but had heard from general
report, that it was to be a free
school, presumably to meet tho
special needs of Portuguese and
other children, whose parents were
unwilling or unable to pay. From
their, point of view, it may be the
duty of the Bishop and his clergy,
to fuistrate those benevolent inteu
tioiio. In doing so, it is to be hoped
that they will not be led to impute
any sectarian motive to 'the Board,
unless they have good evidence of it.
As to. the terms applied b) the
"Fiiend" to Roman Catholic doc
trine, which the good Bishop thinks
"bitter" and "abusive," youi col
umns aic probably not the place for
a defense thereof involving so much
theological discussion as would lie
neccbsaiy. The "Friend" is sup
posed to stand, however uuwoithily,
as a representative of the vai ious
denominations of "Evangelical"
Protestants living hole in luumony
and fellowship. It exercises the
right of characterizing in what it
considers fitting and measured terms,
us occasion icquires, any pernicious
teachings or injurious attitude of
other paities who are making
war upon our position and our
work, as it.iecenlly did in the case
of the Seventh-day Adventists. It
makes no apology for the use of such
language, however, painful to the
other party. We regard the Roman
Catholic faith as a very corrupt,
form of Christianity, and said bo
plainly. The Bishop returns the
compliment by calling ours a. "new
religion," implying that it is not
the old religion of Christ, not real
Christianity at all. We do not feel
seriously disturbed by that opinion
of his, nor by the variety and sever
ity of the epithets habitually applied
to Protestants by Catholic wi iters,
although we heartily wish that so
excellent a man as the Bishop had
less perverted ideas upon religion,
as we see it. Wo do not at all re
sent his language as "uncharitable"
or "discourteous." If the tremend
ous authority with whice his church
endows him here m Hawaii is from
a divine source, he has the right to
be far more severe than ho is in his
language. If on the other 'hand,
that authority is based upoii error,
it is a fearful usurpation, and justi
fies Protestants in much severity of
language in repelling it. In so
serious a conflicit to talk of "dis
couitesy," when blows are given
and received, seems hardly in place.
As to "charity," we try to dis
criminate between tho piety and
virtues of tho man, and the cnors
of the system to which lie is at
tached. We have at least enough
of charity to feel very hopeful that
tho devout and benevolent Bishop
,uud his priests will be full partakers
of salvation, notwithstanding their
errors of doctrine, however seiiou3.
Would that wo could think that our
charity was reciprocated.
As to "practical Christianity,'
we rejoice in any earnest and effec
tive ii)anifcstationsi thereof by any
class of Cluistians', and would be
emulous of the same. The Roman
Catholic Church has some lines ot
beneficence in which it is claimed to
exqcl. It is not in place here to
boast of what good woiks Protes
tant Christians have done and aic
doing, especially when wo might
have done so much better. May
the good Lord help us all I
Eniroii or "Fiuknd."

KEROSENE IN CHINA.
The Viceroy of Canton, tho fa
mous Chang Chihtung, has address
ed a memorial to the Emperor" which
contains a terrible indictment of
kerosono oil. Ho brings a long se
ries of charges against it. Not long
ago it caused the dosti notion of -100
houses in Swatow; just before it
burnt a steamer to the water's edge,
taking the lives of about 800 per
sons; shortly after it burnt out
1,000 families in Canton and des
troyed 510,000,000 worth of prop
erty. It is responsible for nlne
tcnths of the fires occurring every
winter in the city of Canton, and
therefor tho Viceroy denounces it.
lie declares that it has done incal
culable injury to life aud property;
that It is' worso than opium, being
moie BWift and terrible in its dcadh
ncss ; and that it has almost des
troyed the native industry in pea
nut, colza and bean oil. On ac
count of these evil deeds tho Viccioy
did his best last year to kill tho
trade in koiosene by raising the in
land dues, but in vain. ' The vitality
of the destroyer was too much even
for him, so he now approaches "tue
throne to seek for aid in the strug
gle with the foreign trader, who,
under the guise of friendship, in
sists on profiting himself by intro
ducing an article highly injurious to
the welfare of China. There is no
difficulty, pursues his Excellency,
in the way of putting a slop to the
baneful tiafile in this illuminant, be
cause by a Treaty of 1881 with
America, provision nas made to
limit Chinese immigration to that
country and prevent its increase, as
the competition of Chinese labor
was found to be objectionable, and
"if they can prohibit our going
there because Chinese labor is inju
rious to their interests, we havo an
equal right to prohibit tho importa
tion of kerosene when it is tinju-
lious to us. Tlie law that nations
have a right to protect their own in
terests and provent injury being
done their people applies to both
countries alike, if there be any jus
tice ; and when either Government
acts on this principle no objection
can be raised by the other." On
this principle, therefore, the Viceroy
would instantly have a stop put to
the import of the most important
article of American trade with
China. fR. F. Bulletin.
