Pledged to tia'ticr
But established for
V7 tier Putty,
' benefit of all.
MONDAY, DK( . 10, 1888.
HE KNOWS IT.
The editor of the Uullktix does
not want the place of any Cabinet
'Minister or any Government olllcinl
whatever, and would not accept any
such position were it tendered. But
it is an undeniable fact that the me
dical editor of the "Advertiser"
schemed and bquirnicd for Govern
ment employment for more than ten
long years, and he knows it.
THE BEST POLICY.
Tho established political system
of this country places the political
power entirely in thu hands
of the aboriginal natives, white
foreigners, and the descendants
of the latter, totally ignoring
all tho Asiatics, of which the popu
lation is largely composed. The
natives cannot be blamed if they
consider thcnselves entitled to tho
position of control. They have on
their side the strong argument of
prior occupiers of the soil. It is to
be expected also that the white for
eigners and their descendants, with
their strong belief in their superior
enlightenment and civilization,
should he unwilling to occupy a
.subordinate position. Besides, they
have a powerful argument in the
fact that their money, their brains,
and their enterprise have made the
country what it is, in the matter of
material development and pros
perity. The question arises, "What do
true wisdom and the interests of the
nation dictate as the best state
policy for tho guidance of these two
elements comprising the body poli
tic? Our answer is, coalition. Drop
all distinctions of race and coalesce
as one body for all purposes of
Government. The white man has
come here, is established, has in
vested his money, developed the
previously dormant resources of the
country, bringing with him the
blessings and curses of his civiliza
tion ; and here he is bound to stay.
He cannot be ignored. The native
was here first; he welcomed the
stranger, invited him to remain, and
accepted his civilization. For the
foreigner to turn upon the aborigine
and relegate him to a subordinate
position in his own country would
be treacherous, unmanly, and un
just. The cry of "Hawaii for the
Ilawaiians," and the demand to
make this "a white man's country,"
in the sense of giving ilic white man
sole recognition and control, are
alike foolish. Tho native and the
foreigner should woik together for
the common good of the two, and in
harmony they will find the interests
of both served.
In drawing towards a conclusion
' we would observe that the peoples
-who constitute the body politic by
the provisions of the fundamental
law of the land should never lose
sight of the fact that there are other
peoples and other nationalities beside
themselves domiciled in our borders,
whohavc been invited and welcomed
here, and that upon those in whom
is vested the political power de- '
volvo the-duty and responsibility of
seeing that none arc oppressed, but
that justice is done to all. Small as
the country Is and limited the total
population, probably no country
can bo found in which a greater va
riety of nationalities is represented,
and in consequence a greater variety
of habits of thought and fixed
ideas relating to, the management of
public affairs. Among tho foreign
clement enfranchised by the opera
tions of the now Constitution arc
many nationalities, each of which is
naturally predisposed in favor of tho
laws and methods of government
prevailing in its fatherland. To
suit all is au utter impossibility.
But enlightened statesmanship would1
establish a broad basis and operate
on the most liberal lines. To sweep
away every vestige of tho sectional
narrowness wmcu huh uccii u jiiuiui-
:pent feature of the geijeral past, to
blot'it'outaa far as possible fipm
,the records of our policy, to lot its
Uristory 'bo deemed an incredible
myth, and to redeem by energetic
actiou its disastrous consequences,
fehould now be the hopo and object
I every thinking man who wishes
ell to the country, and desires to
-see her riso superior to the degrada
tion of many years culpability.
THE. ONLY lTvEPAPER iu
'Honplulu "The Dally Bulletin.
H) cents per month.
When, during the period between
two and five years ago, this paper
and the present writer look the
ground that tho lcnts of business
promises, private residences, and
lands in Honolulu, and tho selling
prices of the same wore simply in
flated and had lisen to a pitch that
could not be maintained', some iu
vestora, men who considered them
selves shrewd speculators, held and
arcued that we were iuiionuil ot
what we wrote about, and that time
would convince us of the fact.
lias the history of tho two subse
quent years, now ending, vindicated
our positioner justified their conlcu
tion? As a matter of fact, rents and
purchasing prices of every descrip
tion of property have come down
very considerably, in many instances
to less than ouc half of the former
rates. This means what? Simply
that the inflation has disappeared,
or at least diminished.
The circumstances and condition
of the town and country were never
such as to warrant the high rates
asked and obtained at the tin.e re;
ferred to, and no extraordinary pre
science was required to predict that
a reaction would follow. Money
was abundant and loosely held.
High rents were paid, new busines
sess started, lands purchased, and
houses built ; and all largely with
borrowed capital. Everything was
oveulone. There was no back coun
try behind the little city to sustain
the business which was established
or to maintain the great expecta
tions texcited. Gradually, for two
years and moie past, values, or
more correctly, prices, have been
depreciating and coming to their
Of course, landlords and real es
tate OTmers have been slow to real
ise that they must accept lower
rents and lower prices when selling,
or nothing. As the' in many cases,
paid clear for their property, they
therefore considered everyone else en
titled to the same disadvantage,
from the time of their purchase to
eternity. Although proprietors na
turally look with disfavor upon the
condition, of things which compels
the acceptance of lower rents and
selling rates, this condition must be
admitted to lie healthier, safer and
more stable, because more normal.
TO THE PUBLIC.
Editok Bum.utin: Allow me
through the colilmns of your paper
to thank the people of Honolulu for
their many kind expressions during
my late illness and be assured I
shall ever remember it with grati
tude to you all.
Very truly yours,
A. M. IIuvi:tt.
NEW ROAD TO THE VOLCANO.
Editok BuM.unx: The cayriagc
road to the Volcano is now com
pleted right from Pnhala and up;
and I hope this news will be received
with approval and welcome by the
whole community of Honolulu, as
well as outside travelers.
The course of this road has been
particularly selected where the
country affords its best scenery,
running the most of the way through
a beautiful valley, then the sur
roundings most strikingly change by
the road running across a big aa
flow for a distance of if of a mile.
The road itself is as level and smooth
as your best roads in Honolulu, but
by looking on cither side yon will
get a vivid impression of how the
now quiet and dead looking huge
rocks in a former period were tossed
about in pretty lively style. After
crossing this How the road winds
along the foot of the high bluff
abreast of tiie crater, and as you
gradually get higher the whole
country below is spread out before
your wondering eyes like a grand
panorama. To the left you sco the
big ocean, and as your eyes glide
along the green llehh of pasture
land appear richly dotted here and
there with woods of Koa and Ohia,
till they Anally rest on the summit
of Mauna Loa, and by following its
lidge you will (hid the snow capped
peaks of Mnuna Kca in the dis
tance. You arc now also in plain sight
of the Volcano House, and the trip
is finished before you hardly think
of it. You don't feel any worset liau
you do alter having taken an aftei
dinncr rest in your easy chair.
There is no excuse now lor leav
ing your wife or children at home,
take them along, they can never
make a better use of a few days va
cation. They will sec something
that will foicvcr be printed in their
memory, not to mention anything
about the healthy influence such n
trip will have on soul and body.
Travelers can now be accommo
dated in any bliapo thoy wr.nt. The
journey Mints with a little trip on
railroad for f miles, and then tho
traveler can proceed in omnibus,
carriage, brake or on horseback.
The "Piiwiluu Hotel" is already
so favorably known for lis accomo
dations that any further description
Jier.e is not needed. No party has
yet left hero without being highly
pleased and satisfied.
Tho enterprise of making this
road (which already is known as
Peter Leo's now Volcano Boad) has
not been accomplished without a
great deal of hardship ; loss of time
and money. But as this undertak
ing is for the public benefit, I hopo
tho public will show appreciation by
a liberal patronage. Come nlong
all, take the ladles with you ; the
crater ts blazing away livelier than
ever before. Pivrr.u LtK.

On Saturday a native named Laa,
of Walluku, left a petition at the
olllce of the Board of Health pray
ing that ho be allowed to visit his
wife, who is a leper, at the settle
ment, Molokni. This morning he
again made his appearance at the
olllce and asked Dr. N. B. Emer
son, President of tho Board, to
grant the prayer of his petition.
The doctor said that he could not
give the authority himself, it would
have to go before tho Board for ap
proval. Laa, iu a very command
ing tone, told the doctor to grant
the prayer instantly or he would
shoot htm. As he spoke he drew
from his pocket an English bull dog
pistol with five chambers, all loaded.
Just at that moment Board of Health
ofllccr Kingslcy happened in the
oflicc and noticing the pistol in
Laa's hand made a dash for him,
and with the assistance of Secretary
Ashley after a brief struggle it was
taken away from him, and locked
up iu the safu. Laa was thrown to
the giound his hands tied securely
behind him until the police were
called, when he was taken to the
