PUdired to neither Sect nor Part)1,
But established for the benefit ef all.
SATURDAY, D. C. 1, 1888.
THE INTENTION IS TO SELL.
As previously stated in this paper,
Mr. F. II. Hayselden, proprietor of
the Elcle newspaper and plant, is
desirous of selling out the entire
property, and has ivdvcrtiscd accord
ingly. An item in tbe "Advertiser"
which says that it 13 reported that
the paper and the establishment
"arc to bo placed under the man
agement of Hon. J. 13. Hush," is
liable to mislead. The natural in
ference is that the present proprietor
is to retain ownership while Mr. Bush
assumes the management. Wc have
authority for saying that there is no
such intention. Mr. Hayselden is
anxious to free himself absolutely
from the entire newspaper and
printing business, and is doing his
best, through his agent, to effect a
sale. An attempt is being made to
form a syndicate, with Mr. Bush at
its head, to purchase the paper and
plant, and cairy on the business.
NOT ALL BAD.
According to some people and
we have the misfortune to meet per
sons of this class every day the
human family as a whole is utterly
bad, and the Honolulu portion there
of most positively so. There is no
virtue, no sincerity, no honesty. All
men arc thieves, roguos, and liars
always excepting, of course, the
one who undertakes the wholesale
vilification: he stands alone. If a
man goei, to church or makes a pro
fession of religion, he is a hypo
crite. "What better proof of this
than his profession? If he does a
good deed, and there is no denying
it, it is from a selfish motive. If
he speaks or writes in defense of a
public servant, it is because he is
paid for it. If his criticism is ad
verse, this is prima facie evidence
that he craves the billet himself.
Whatever he does is for pay, and
when he finds fault the pay is either
wanting or insufllcient. How dread
ful, if this is our condition selfish
ness so dominant, ririnciple so lack
ing! Did" we believe it for one
moment, we should lose no time in
getting out of the country into
another-; or failing in the attempt,
should contemplate steps to leave
the world and climb a pole one or
,thc other or whicji alternatives we
sincerely invite the gentlemen who
are constantly pestering us with the
above class of talk, to accept with
as little delay as possible. To be
sure, there is enough hypocrisy,
selfishness, and dishonesty, and to
spare, in the town, buttbc coinmur
nity is not made up entirely of these
WHAT IS IN A NAME?
Of late years a proclivity for
naming ships after persons seems to
have seized portions of the shipping
fraternity of tho United States.
The contagion reached these islands
a long while ago. Some of our mer
cantile fleet were christened at the
commencement of their career after
well-known estimable persons ; and
others have taken on new names of
the same class, in their mature age,
by a second baptism. Sometimes
the name of a -deceased person is
chosen for a ship, but perhaps more
frequently that of the living. Ship
owners sometimes use their own
names and'soinetimes the' names of
their relatives or friends. What is
' intended as a compliment may be so
regarded or otherwise, according to
the taste of the person concerned,
or according 'to the kind of craft
upon 'which the person's name is
conferred. A man or a woman may
view with pride a noble vessel bear
ing his or her name, riding majes
tically upon the ocean wavo; but
the sight of an old tub distinguished
by the same cognomen, is not cal
culated to inspire the sarao feeling.
,.The custpm, as a means of per
petuating the memory of one res
pected, must ever bo precarious.
Sarah Jano may any day hear of her
floating monument being wrecked
and ruined while she herself sur
vives, It,moy bo asked, "What is in a
name?" Wlint, indeed? To a sailor,
and iriore particularly one who lias
sailed in a vessel having her own
k proper nnine, beetovred upon her
y"Jiir cnmi frnnrl lnlv U'lillaf. Ipnvhirr
j uu.w t,w -"-v P
, tho ways on which she was built,
b christened by a bottle of cbanipaguo
jrokcajngainbt her bows, as aho was
tCDteringplier native element, tiijs
changing of names Is looked upon
as little less than sacrilege.
Take for cxnmple the old historic
tea clipper "Min," named after the
river in China on which she, with
many othors of her class, loaded her
annual cargo of tea and raced home
with tho'Tlrst flight" of clippers for
tho additional ten shillings per ton
in those days, given by shippers for
"first ship home." This same old
"Min" that, in those good old days
of sailing clippers that were our
prideO years ago, looked more like
a graceful yacht than a trader, is
now here In Honolulu, with her once
lofty spars reduced in size, rig
changed from a ship to that of a
baik, and called shade of 13on-
fucius the "W. B. Godfrey." Can
it be .1 matter of surprise since this
strange metamorphosis, that she
Bhould have misbehaved herself, and
allowed her bulwarks to be carried
awaj'? The surprising thing is that
she can be made to steer !
As if tho case of the "Min,"
above alluded to, changing lire
name from a river in China to that
of a respected American citizen,
were not enough, tho good ship
"Waikato," built for and until re
cently owned by the New Zealand
Shipping Co., turns up a full
fledged German. This is too much
for one. who knew both under their
original patronymics,, to come all at
once. Tho "Waikato," now the
"J.C.Pfluger," was to-day alongside
the Pacific Mail Co.'s wharf, and,
from her fine general appearance,
docs not seem to have suffered so
greatly by the change as her
After all, it is. a matter of taste,
but we would prefer to select names
for ships which are not in the cata
logue of appellations usually given
to human beings. Above all, we
would shrink, as from an act of
sacrilege, from exchanging a long
borne sweet-sounding name for a
harsh and uupoetic cognomen.
PLEASED WITH HONOLULU.
Editoii Bult.utin : Having come
to your little town of Honolulu on a
pleasure and little business trip in
October last, a perfect stranger to
most of you and am now going to
spend a week on the other islands,
and see the Volcano before return
ing home, I must say that I am de
lighted with your little town and its
surroundings ; also with the people
in it. Although I struck a dull
horse market, 1 have made lots of
acquaintances audi think some good
friends, and their kindness I never
shall foiget. I do hope that if any
of my friends ever come to San
Francisco, or any of their relatives,
they will always call on me at my
residence, C3C Golden Gate Avenue.
The latch string shall always hang
"out for them, and I do assure you
not one of my family but wh.it will
welcome tlieni, if they only say they
come from Honolulu and mention
1113' name. IIenky Woisjiington. ,
Honolulu, Dec. 1, 1888.
YOU BET THEY DO.
Editou Bulm-tin: The "Adver
tiser" in its issue of yesterday
seemed to be quite delighted over
its wonderful discovery,$that the
troubles of Company C, Honolulu
Rifles, had turned out as they (the
Advertiser) supposed ; and went on
to tell lots of stuff about it.
I venture to say, that the "Ad
vertiser" is very much mistaken,
and knows no more about military
than myself. A company takes pre
cedence according to its seniority.
The Captain is a senior Captain,
again, according to Upton, "the
authority," Company C is a senior
company and holds the right of the
The "Advertiser" also nonsensi
cally talks about the "Luso's"
"pretended interest" in the Portu
guese Company u, (Honolulu Rifles)
and says that Company 0, probably
understand the matter pretty well.
You bet they do, and to show it,
they refused to leave the armory on
the 10th of November, when order
ed out to the shooting contest, and
it was only to please their captain
that they at last consented to go,
which I did not know till the next
day when they made complaint.
And I must say for the enlighten
ment of tho "Advcitiser," that the
"Luso" takes in this matter no
"pretended interest.". The "Luso"
really and truly leads, represents
and defends the interests of many
moro people than the "Advcitiser"
over did and ever will under tho
present Clique of which it Is the
oigan and which is getting cveiy
day smaller in. numbers and weaker
To what the "Advertiser" mali
ciously says and insinuates towards
the end of its famous editorial, I
make no reply, ns there is nothing
to bo gained by icplying to the in
sinuations and slurs thrown by .a
newspaper of so low a standard.
The last lines, however, deserve
The "Advertiser" appeals to its
readers lo conllrm its denial of hos
tility to the Portuguese. This is
amusing, considering that the great
majority of its readers are "in tho
