SATURDAY, NOV. 21, 1888.
The Alameda's failuic to arrive
this morning according to expecta
tion was a gieat disappointment' all
round. Everybody was in readiness
at day light, but the steamer, with
tho baseball players, was not on
hand. Business lias been suspended
most of the day about as much as
if the steamer had come. Hope was
entertained by many until the major
part of the forenoon had gone, that
the steamer would yet bo in time
for a baseball exhibition this after
noon. But everybody is "lioka."
It is expected, however, that what
the community had calculated for
to day will be icalised on Monday
RELIGION IN GOVERNMENT
The Board of Education has
adopted an expedient which has
been tried and found to work well in
some other countries ; viz. , to allow
clergymen of any denomination the
use of Government school houses
for the purpose of giving religious
instruction to children, after the
regular school hours. The Board
has instructed the School Agents
that they "may ariango with the
clergymen of any religious denomin
ation to allow them the use of the
public school houses after 2 o'clock,
p. ni., for a time not exceeding one
hour once a week for each deno
mination applying, for the religious
instruction of such scholars as may
choose to attend with the consent ot
This is a perfectly fair and equal
proposition, giving no one deno
mination the advantage of others,
and allowing all an opportunity to
impress their religious beliefs upon
tho minds of those disposed to le
ceive them. Some objection may
be raised against the shortness of
the time permitted only one hour
in each week to each denomination ;
but probably the Board will not hold
very tenaciously to this point, if it
bo shown that the time is insufli
cient. Tbo Board provides for the entire
youth of the country, of all classes
and creeds, tho rudiments of a secu
lar education teaches them to read,
write, and cipher, and endeavors to
instil into their minds the principles
1 of morality. No form of religion is
included'in the curriculum, for the
good and sulllcicnt reason that in a
community where several religious
beliefs obtain no one of the number
can be acceptable to all, and it is
manifestly unjust to force upon a
child a creed which is obnoxious to
the conscience of the parent. And
yet tho Board docs not interfere with
parents bringing up their children
to any religious belief they may
deem best, but allowB full liberty of
conscienoo, even permitting its
school houses to bo used as schools
of religion out of regular school
hours. This is precisely what iB
done in tho Australian colonics and
some other countiies, and is, in our
opinion, all that tho various religious
denominations can reasonably re

Eihtoii Bulletin: I happened
to get hold of a stray Honolulu
Daily Advertiser the other day, of
Nov. 5th, and in it I found quite a
lengthy editorial against Bossism ia
Hawaii Nei. In one part he says :
"Thus far in our 'history' we in Ha
waii, can hardly bo said to have
ever known what it was to have a
boss." Then again he says, "But
however that may be, and however
the present may differ from the
past, we don't want any boss in Ha
waiian politics.; and wo dont intend
to have any if we can help it."
"What gall 1 Does he not know that
the Islands fioin Hawaii to Niihau
since our little unpleasantness, has
been under boss rule? and how
about the last Legislature! "Was it
not under a complete control of the
bosses? and what a mess they made
of it. Also about the Advertiser.
Is it not under boss rule? How cau
it be otherwise, when unfortunately
for the good of the country it is
owned and controlled by a select
few of the bosses. I give the Ad
vertiser clan timely warning that the
people arc in no mood to be trifled
with a second time. But if thou art
really in for reform, and determin
ed to be honest and consistent in
the future, thou must cut the cord
of tho bosses, that thou art so en
tangled ,vith, and commence on tho
cwa side of Queen street in Hono
lulu, ,Jand quickly too,"' and strike
out boldly and manfully against boss
rule, and for true reform this time.
"For by thy deeds, not words, shalt
3fe be judged in the future."
Don't bother yourselves about us
here we will take care that Hawaii
and the whole country in fact goes
right for ti ue icform next time. I
don't know, but I uin afraid the
"Advertiser' is not sincere in his
harrangue about boss rule, but fears
a change ot bobses. Possibly he
may be sincere, the worst of men
sometimes reform, but we shall see.

KING STREET TRAMWAY.
Editoh Bulletin: In common
with other lcsidents at the Mraikiki
district I observe with much interest
the progress now being made in the
construction of the tiamway in that
The laying down of the rails is
now completed for a distance of
nearly a mile beyond the turning
near Mr. Jaeger's residence, or,
about three miles from town. Not
bad work when the kinds of labor
and materials at the disposal of the
contractor is considered, but of very
little service so far as cither tho
public, or the tramway pioprictors
arc concerned, until the road on
cither side of the rails is so far com
pleted as to enable the tiam cars to
be used. As they arc at the pre
sent time, and, judging from the
rate of progress made during the
past few months, the oxisting road
is not only a positive nuisance, but
an absolute menace to public safety,
more especially at night time, for
carriage tralllc. In places the rails
staml up 8 or 12 inches from" the
road on either side, making it quite
impossible for a carriage to cross
over, and, since the road in many
places is so narrow, it is a most
hazardous matter to pass vehicles
coming from an opposite direction.
Tho rainy season must now be
close at hand, and I, for one, pro
test most strongly against a system
that will grant a concession to lay
down a lino of lails along a much
used highway, and yet neglect to
use the most ordinary precautions
for making it safe for ordinary traf
fic. If tho Government were not
propaied to put King street in suffi
cient good order to make the road
safe, it would have been better for
all concerned to have deferred the
laying down of the rails until they

DEATH OF MRS. EMERSON.
The sad news of the death of Mrs.
U. S. N. Emerson at about 3 this a.
m., from old ago, was conveyed
across the wires from Waialua,
Oahu. In Mrs. Emerson is taken
away another of those whoso whole
soul was devoted to good woiks.
Tho prime of her life, the pride of
her health and strength and her old
ago was a glad, continuous offering
to her Saviour.
She was born Sept. 27, 180G, at
Nelson, Now Hampshire, U. S. A.
She was married to Kcv. J. S. Em
erson in 1831, and the same year,
with her husband, started with the
reinforcement of missionaiies, of
which Alexander Armstrong, lay
man, liitcncocK, uiarK anil otners
were members, for these Isl
ands. They left New Bedford,
Mass., on Nov. 28, 1831, and arriv
ed in Honolulu May 17, 1832.
The story of their voyage hither,
their privations and haidships after
ai rival, the glorious success of their
endeavors among the natives, arc
all matters which make many pages
in the hibtory of thib nation. Those
who knew Mrs. Emerson could but
lovo and admire her: patient, gen
tle, kind, foigetful of self, ever
ready to assist m times of trouble,
with a firm and unfaltering trust in
God, whoso nromii.es she tested so
well she uulcaicd hetsell to all with
whom she came in contact. She
was the true fiiend of the natives,
helping them in all ways she could,
excusing t.iuir shoi trainings as does
a mother those ol her children.
She will he buiicd lo-monow,
Sunday, the 25th inst., in the ceme
tery at Waialua, beside her beloved
husband who pieceded her in 1800,
and 2 of her ehildicn. She leaves 5
sons: Samuel N. Emeison of Waia
lua, Dr. N. B. Emerson, Pi csident of
the Board of Health ; Dr. Justin E.
Emerson of Detroit, Michigan; J.
fc. Emerson, Civil Engineer; and
Kev. Oliver 1 Emerson of Peace
dales, R. I., U. S. A. ; to mourn her
incalculable loss. They have the
hoarlfelt sympathy of all. Her life
was a glad, gloripus triumph, her
end a sudden and peaceful victory.
The steamer Kuala leaves for
Waialua this evening at 5 o'clock
with a few invited friends.

Tho manner of using tho "SCRUB EX

Tho first shipment of this preparation
