A LITTLE MORE SEVERITY
It cannot be truly said that the
Honolulu Police Court is, as a rule,
given to inflicting unieasonably
heavy penalties on law-breakers.
Our Police Judge is a gentleman of
a kind and gentle nature, with a
heart as big -as a bullock's, and
therefoie much more liable to in
cline to the side of leniency tban
that of severity. There is none of
the Judge Jeff toys hairiness anri fe
rocity about our Police Jurigc.
Probably if his own lialur.ri feelings
weie ' allowed to decide all cases,
there would be a very little pun
ishment of any kind. Well, it is
better to err on the side of mercy
than on the side of severity. But,
on the oilier hand, it cannot be de
nied that leniency in inflicting the
penalties of the law upon offenders
has a tendency lo encourage Iaw
breaking ; and ie cannot help think
ing that if the Judge would bo a lit
tle more severe sometimes with
those who endanger people's lives
by fast or lecklcss driving, it would
have a wholesome effect.
As a rule in small communities,
really good music, either vocal or
instrumental, is not generally found.
In this respect Honolulu forms a
very marked exception. Our local
Band, ''under Berber's able leader-
' Bliip," is far and away ahead of
many bands heard in larger and
' more important cities. Amongst our
private citizens arc also musicians
of no mean order, whose attain
ments would entitle them to a lead
ing placo whorevcr they may be.
As regards vocal music, Honolulu is
also fortunato in being able to claim,
more especially amongst the young
ladies, many well trained and clever
musicians, endowed by nature with
voices" of surprising power, purity
To those who have not yet had
the pleasure of seeing and hearing
what our young ladies are capable
of in, opera music, an opportunity
will bo presented on Saturday even
ing next at; the Opera House. Tho
Tjcsthetio opeietta, "Patience," selec
tions from which will bo given on
that occasion, is one of Gilbert &
Sullivan's most pleasing produc
tions, abounding with sparkling
iviticisms. Apart from its absurd
and comical side, the operetta con
tains music of a higher class consist
ing ofcharming songs, duetts, etc.

THE FISHERIES QUESTION.
A few days ago a communication
nppoaicdiuthc "Advctliser,"on tho
fisheries qucstion,vhieh litis question
frequently cropped up in the Ha
waiian Legislature during the past
fifteen or twenty years. That our
sea fisheries should be private in
stead of public propci ty we cannot
regard as other than a misfortune.
But there the fact is, and they
We take it that the
to the fisheries were as valid ns the
original land titles. The same riqht
that apportioned the lauds of the
kingdom apportioned the fisheries,
and the right was as well established
in tho one case as in the oilier. The
fisheries have descended to heirs, or
have been bought anri sold, in the
same way as tho lands and on simi
lar titles. If the inheritor or pur
chaser of a fishery has no right to
the property, neither has ho to land
acquired in the same way. The
owner of an area of tha sea, is the
owner of tho fish within that area,
just as the owner of land is the
owner of the wild game upon it.
We repeal that we consider it a
misfortune lo the people that the
fisheries are thus held. They should
be common pioperty. But vested
interests cannot be justly ignored,
or the property ruthlessly wrested
from its rightful owners by an Act
of the Legislature. The Legislature
may justly and properly pass an
Act for tho purchase of the sea
fisheries, in outer to make them
common property not, perhaps, at
tho price placed upon them by their
owners, but at a fair and equitable
valuation. This is the only just
way of making our sea fisheries
common propeity, which we trust
the' will be in the not very distant

A HACKMAH COMPLAINS.
Editok Buu.uriN-: You aie con
tinually writing in your paper about
us poor hackmen, it looking to me
as it we were always to blame1 for
all the lunaways,
ask you to take
etc. Now, sir, I
a walk up Foit
street an v aftei noon between 2 and
f o'clock, and you will see a large
number of private carriages without
anyone in tlicni, the horses not
hitched. In some you will sec small
children holding the reins. There
is a law compelling hackmen to
hitch their hoises and I think tin
law should also extend to private
can iages. More accidents are caused
by pi hate teams than by licensed
hacks. A hick wax.
Ewrou Bui.i.iun: Without any
special effort upon their pait, with
an enviable naluial aptitude for in
gratitude, which is one of the dis
tinguishing features of the great
and glorious Republican party, these
men have the proud satisfaction to
pose befoie the people of Honolulu
as ingrates. These veiy lucky poli
ticians, who with commendable per
sistency have succeeded to poll 28
more votes than any other party
here, have foigotten themselves. In
toxicated with the joy of being the
discoveiers of the astonishing 'fact
that Mr. Harrison once had a grand
father, "they have lost all remem
brance of the accommodating kind
ness and aloha shown and given to
them by Mr. Gracnhalgh.
The bloody 'shirt of Sherman turns

cans in Honolulu begs to acknow

M. DE LESSEPS AND THE PANAMA
An unfounded report was cunent
in Paris the othor day of the death
of M. dc Lesseps. It proved to be
a mere Stock Exchange rumor. Ac
cording p one account, it originated
in London. In consequence of the
rumor, Panama shares fell 15f. In
view of the interest felt in the
Panama Canal, the "Daily News"
coriespoiirient in Paris makes the
following observations lespectingthe
prospects of the undertaking: "The
new issue consists of two million
bonds of 10 nominal; but issued
at I'M 8s., the actual amount which
the company ia authorised to raise
being 28,800,000. From this
amount must be deducted 4,800,-
000 fora8inkingfund, in accordance
with tho piovlstons of the Lottery
Loan 13111. There will bo left just
21,000,000; but the net sum re
ceived will be far below this. Those
who have seen the advertisements
which have been insetted every day
in tho Fiench newspapers, and tho
placards in l'aris andelsewhcie, who
are aw.iro of the tremendous, sums
spent in publicity, the commissions
lo bankers, &c, will understand how
seriously the company iB weighted,
1 may confidently put down all these
costs at 24s., a bond. On this score
afiu:ther deduction must bo made
of 2,400,000. So that, if tho
whole loan were taken up, the money
available would amount to 21,C0O,
000 only. The annual interest on
this ii '1,200,000. But the com
pany is nhcady saddled with 3,
G00,000 a year in respect of interest
on previous loans and share capital
and managing expenses. These
added, charges will come up at the
end of three years to 1-1,400,000,
leaving yet the works unprovided
for. By that lime, as a simple sub
traction shows us, there would re
main 7,200,000 out of the whole
S0,000,000'. Now tho work is far
from being half carried out, with
fifty millions sterling sunk. How
caii wo expect that this lottery loan
will suffice lo finish it? M. do Les
seps and his sccrctary-geneial, M.
Fontane, must be aware that'sovcral
more loans will be' inevitable; for
the annual charges merely for inter
est and administration will go on in
creasing with each successive loan.
The prospectus omits altogether to
enter into particulars of tho under
taking. It dwells on tho chances of
duiwing colossal prizes; but the
only statement of importance made
is that the canal is about to be
finished. This piomise has, how
ever, been made on the occasion of
previous loans. In the official bulle
tin of tho 1st of February, 1880,
M. dc Lesseps writes: 'We shall
meet again at Panama in seven years
on the 1st of October, 1887, to in
augurate the canal.' In tho num
ber of the 1st of August, 1884, 1
read: 'Even if we were to begin the
workings on the 1st of January,
1885, they would bo terminated on
the 1st of Januaiy, 1888, to a ma
thematical certainty.' The official
bulletin of the 1st of May, 188G,
states emphatically that the sea-level
canal will be quite finished in 1889.
The latest utterance of the director
of the company is that the opening
will take place in 1890. As to traffic
they first said that four millions of
tons would yield their anticipated
dividend. Afterwards they spoke
of six, and now of 7 J' M. Leioy
Beaulieu, the greatest economist in
France, after a long study of the
subject, came to the conclusion that
the tralllc would not realise more
than 1,200,000. That amount
would yield far less than 2 per cent,
on tho share and debenture capital.
Many a portentous word of warning
was utteicd in both Houses of Par
liament during the debate on the
Lottery Bill, but somehow the un
favorable speeches never got into
the newspapers, or weie toned down.
To find them it is necessaiy lo icfer
to the oHieial journal." "Home
