FRIDAY, NOV. 2S, 1888.
The town is on tho tip-toe of ex
pectation. Seldom is the coming of
the San Francisco steamer looked
forward to with such universal in
terest. We expect to sec the AUx
meda along bright and early to
morrow luoining, and if she disap
points us, (which wc do not believe
she will) we shall bo greatly disap
pointed. The community is eagerly
waiting for news of the Presidential
election and for the American base
ball players, both of which are on
the Alameda. The news of the
election will be received with joy by
the sympathisers with whichever
party has won the victory, and
naturally with feelings of disap
pointment by the other side. The
baseball players will be heartily wel
comed. Preparations have been
and are being made by the gentle
men having the matter in charge, to
make the day one of enjoyment to
our visitors. We feel sure that the
party will have no cause to regret
their visit to our shores on the
score of treatment. Several promi
nent business firms have intimated
their intention of closing their estab
lishments at noon for the balance of
the day, and most white men's busi.
ness houses will probably follow that
commendable example. The pro
gramme of the day will be found in
another column, from which our
readers can lcaru how the time is to
Miller street is a little street lead
ing from Beretania street to Punch
bowl sticet. It is n thoroughfare
which has considerable traflic, owing
to its being the shortest route from
the principal part of the town to
the Queen's Hospital and to the
most populous part of the Portu
guese settlement on the slopes of
Punchbowl. Notwithstanding this
fact, Miller street has never had
much attention from the Govern
ment not because it is not in need
thereof, but fiom some cause un
known to us. Portions of it arc al
ways in frightful condition after
rain. At the present time its upper
end, near Punchbowl street, is a
perfect quagmire, almost absolutely
impassable. It will be in that con
dition all winter' unless the Road
Department bestows some practical
attention upon it. We hope, how
ever, that the needed attention will
not be withheld so long.
TEMPERANCE IN NORWAY IN
Editor Bulletin: I have just
finished reading one of tho most
pleasant, and I believe truthful
books ever written. It is called
"Midnight Sunbeams," and is a
record of a trip through Norway and
Sweden in 1888, by two gentlemen
well known in New England. The
author, Edwin C. Kimball, says on
page 300 anibsequcl: "Formerly
there was scarcely any restriction
placed on tho sale of liquor in Nor
way, and in 1833 the consumption
of strong liquors amounted to
twenty-eight quarts per head of the
entiro population of the country,
and there was a vast amount of
drunkenness with its attendant
misery, poverty, and crime.
But, owing to the raising of tho
duty upon liquor, and the work of
temperance societies, the consump
tion was greatly lowered, and tho
introduction of what is called the
"permissive bill," has still further
restricted the traflic. By this law
the authorities of a district may, by
a majority vote, refuse to grant n
license for the sale of liquor, or
they can give tho monopoly of tho
liquor .trado to a companyj who ore
bound to pay theni all the profits,
after deducting expenses and tho
payment of. a dividend of five per
cent. In many of tho conntry dis
tricts no licenses liavo been granted,
with tho result that drunkenness is
In Bergen, and somo of tho other
cities, tho license is given to a com
pany, who control all tho shops
where liquor is sold, and tho surplus
profits of tho business are turned
into the city treasury. A fine road,
called the "Drammeusvei" Dram
road extending along the side of a
hill back of Bergen high above the
city, has been wholly constructed
from the profits of the liquor tralllc
paid into the municipality ; it is one
of the pleasantest drives in the
vicinity, in fine weather, command
ing most extended views of tho city
and surroundings. During the
whole time we were in Norway wc
never saw n drunken person."
The abovo extracts arc i espect
fully presented to our temperance
societies, of which wc have many ;
wo have many grog shops, also, and
last but not least a good place to
build a "dram road," viz: Punch
bowl hill, etc., and enjntssatit, a rc
commondation to our worthy Police
Judge to lino all drunkards and
allow no more forfeitures of bail of
the incorrigibles, which is done every
week. Fine them and double the
fine each repetition of the offense.
ABOUT CHEAP LABOR.
Editor Bulletin : Having troub
led you already with manuscripts, I
do not feci inclined to impose too
much upon your kindness. Still,
considering the subject of no small
interest, especially to working peo
ple, I will, with your permission,
offer a few more remarks.
The principal theme I should like
to write about, tho life and treat
ment of contract laborers on the
plantations, I will at present not at
tempt to discuss, at least not until
I am invited to do so. The only
subject at present will be the ex
ception'taken to the term, "starva
The Daily Bullltin has at all
times been, and still is, about the
only paper in the Hawaiian Islands,
which generously opens its columns
to all matters of public interest, no
matter whether the subjects talked
on are in accord with the editor's
views or not. The fact is generally
recognized, especially by the work
ing classes, who would like to see
the subscription lists of that
paper swelled, so as to contain the
names of 100,000 subscribers.
The Daily Bulletin claims, and
with right, that it is the working
man's paper. This claim is ac
knowledged and undisputed, for the
woiking classes have always found
the Daily Bulletin to be the
"champion of the workingmen's
cause and rights."
But then, Mr. Editor, you surety
do not intend to say that $1G per
month is a magnificent salary for a
man and his family to support them
selves on. If Chinese and Japanese
can manage to live and save money
besides on SIC per month, it is cer
tainly not expected that a white
mau ought to do the same. I know
j'our sentiments too well to believe
such to be the interpretation of your
words. If the law allowed I would
go with you to the Postal Savings
Bank, to examine the books and ac
counts of some of those laborers
who are workiug for 812 to S17 per
month. Tho several amounts cre
dited to their names, sometimes
more than the total amount of wages
earned by such individuals, ,,i truly
astonishing. But how did they come
to possess such amounts? From sav
ings of a monthly salary of say 810?
"Wo know bettor. From the sale of
opium, samshoo, beer, whiskey, gin,
etc. Thus did they live and save
money besides. Is it desirable that
people of other nationalities should
Finally, I will mention another
fact. Let us take, for example, a
party of German contract laborers,
immigrants. An agent arrives at
their homes, praising up everything
and anything pertaining to the Ha
waiian Islands. Castles in' the air
arc built before their fancies until
their heads swim with all kinds of
notions; they bind themselves to
ship to these Islands, here to work
on plantations at a monthly salary of
810, (SIC the first year, $17 tho
second, and $18 the third, fourth
and fifth years), house rent free, as
well as the uso of about acre of
land, besides freo fuel. But what
these peoplo think is that $1G is
equal to about 05 marks, frhilo 818
is equal to about 78 marks. I will
uot say that there are not any good
plantations or managers, for I know
there are, were there is all dono
to insure all possible comfort to la
boieis. Now then let us lake the total
value of wages and perquisites re
ceived by these people at 820 or $22
per mouth, or about 80 to 00 marks
in German coin. There is no one
who will dispute that 25 cents in
Germany will buy at least as much
as $1 will here, or in other words
you will have to pay here $1 for
what you pay in Germany only 25
cents ; or, if you like, your expenses
hero will be at least four times as
high as in Germany. This is a cal
culation which docs not enter into
the brains of those duped to sign a
labor contract for a period of 5
years. Now then, taken on tho abovo
scale, a man gcttingon anaverage$10
per month or 40 marks, would have
to get hero, so as te evenly balance
the value of his earnings, the sum of
$40 instead of $20. Here it is, where
I say that tho parties have been im
posed upon. I3ut then somo one
will come with tho excuse, that tho
wives and children can cam u little
by stripping cane. True, this is so.
But arc wo, as citizens of that free
country of our prido, the United
States of America, or all who believe
in liberty and justice, aro wc going
to uphold ono of thoso barbarous
customs of some of tho old countries
where the husband is considered
only as the lord and master of his
wife? where the mother has to
drudge along with heavy loads, or
work like a horse in tho fields r
Which is the mother's, tho wifo's
place, the kitchen and the house, or
the field and plow?
As In one of my former articles,
treating on "Capital and Labor," I
again repeat here that tho principles
of personal rights and liberty de
mand that all parties shall have the
indisputable right to offer and ac
cept such wages as can bo agreed on.
SVo cannot blamo very well those
who arc on the constant hunt for
cheap labor. But this can be car
ried to excess, so as to become a
public evil and curse. There is
abundance of labor on these Isl
ands glad and willing to work, but
notonSlG per month,which they can
not do. If employers wish to obtain
help at that price, let them get it,
providing parties at this place can
be found to work for such wages.
If they are then willing to labor at
that rate, they enter a bargain with
carsand eyes open. .Give the dup
ed ones living here the first chance
to make a living, instead of import
ing foreign labor at wages on which
which a person accustomed to a free
country cannot live. For this rea
son let us try to get the laws relat
ing to the Contract Labor System
and Passports abolished. Let us
agitato this, so as to cause prosper
ity once more to return to these Isl

THE MOTIVE FORGE OF THE WORLD.
The Bureau of Statistics, Berlin,
presents some remarkable facts, to
gether with the interesting general
statement thai four-fifths of tho en
gines now working in the world have
been constructed during the last
twenty-five years. In round num
bers, France has 50,060 stationary
or portable bolleis, 7,000 locomo
tives and 1,000 boats' boilers; Ger
many has 59,000 boilers, 10,000
locomotives and 1,700 ships' boilers;
Australio, 12,000 boilers and 2,800
locomotives. Tho force equivalent
to the working steam engine repre
sents, in the United States, 7,500,-000-horse-power,
4,500,000 in Ger
many, 3,000,000 in France, and
1,500,000 in Austria. In these
enumerations the motive-power of
the locomotives is not included,
whose number in all the world
amounts to 105,000, representing a
total of 3,000,000-horse-power,
which amount added to the other
powers, gives a total of 40,000,000-horse-power.
As a steam horse
power ib equul to throe actual horses'
power, "and a living horse is equal to
beven men, the steam engines of the
woild may be said to represent,
therefore, approximately the woik
of 1,000,000,000 men. rS. F. Bul
