FRIDAY, DEC!. 14, 1888.
A HALF HOLIDAY SUGGESTED.
A correspondent, whose angle of
observation is that of the Honolulu
merchant, spenks approvingly In
this issue of the recent change in
the steamer Kinau's time-table.
Our Hilo notes, which appeared yes
terday, arc against the chango. ' Or
rather, the notes say,, that dissatis
faction is expressed by the pcoplo
of Hilo: i It. is' nntuial enough that
any change which lessens the num
ber of times per mouth of steam
communication with the capital
should be viewed with disfavor by
the people of that port. But we
think with our correspondent, that
the change is decidedly in the line
of'advance, and is for the benefit of
the greater number. Our commu
nication with the' windward islands
has been decidedly too "bunchy,"
the steamers mostly all leaving to
gether. The new arrangement tends
in the direction of spreading com
munication over the week, instead
of jamming it all into one cud there
of, and te therefore beneficial to
the general public, both of the capi
tal city null of the other islands. It
also helps (o lighten the work of the
Honolulu merchants and their em
ployees, by extending it over the
week. By the old arrangement it
was a hurried uish for one or two
days, and comparative idleness dur
ing the balance of the week.
Our correspondent suggests that
the next "leform" should be the in
auguration of a weekly half holiday.
We are on hand to back up the sug
gestion. AVc never could sec and
cannot see now any good reason why
all our business establishments
should not close at noon Saturdays,
retailers opening perhaps an hour
or two in the evenings. We were
hopeful when the question was agi
tated two oithrce years ago that the
half' holiday was surely near at
hand, but our hopes were doomed
to disappointment. We would fain
hope, thatj the business people may
be now induced to adopt our corres
pondent's suggestion. There is not
such a largo amount of business
done that the merchants and shop
keepersn cannot spare aihalf day in
the six, and if .all would close no one
could lake the customers of the oth
crs. Many large and busy cities
that could be named find no diffi
culty in shutting up a half day every
week, and there-would be no diffi
culty in Honolulu if those concerned
Editok EDLLnTiN: The thanks
of the business community are due
to Uapt. J. A. King, superintendent
of Wilder's S. S. Co., for following
the good example of the Inter
Island Go. by altering the dates of
arrival and departure of the Kinau,
soastp allow 'proper time for the
transaction of business aud the exe
cutiHn 'disorders from Hhe. other is
lands, a When the steamers nearly
aH'arrived on'Saturday and depart
ed on Monday, too much business
was concentrated o;i those two days
to get proper attention, but under
the riew'regulations'thie is remedied,
and it is now in the line of true re
form to inaugurate the "half holi
day?'; .movement, by all business
men agreeing" to close their places
of business on Saturdays at noon.

tEnia'o'rP BuVi.etin-.--No sensible
man:carAleby that the reform party
has'donc a great deal for Hawaii, by
sstopping' tlicjsfjuandering of the
SDuhtryVniDney in navies, armies,
onjlyviistoe, , jtc,; 'but, .unhappily
since Adam tlyj fpofo are in mnjor
ity, aritlbey couiplnjn loud about
haying beenijlipated. In fact, what
'AocV-tho'gTeater number of native,
tPprtugijeso Norwegian and German
laborers care, or know, about pros
JiorouB finanqeq, good' Jaws, ,oto,?
Free okolehao, high wages and
homesteads, suit than i great deal
f ho great lutslftko lnftde by tho
la9t Legislature was, to have not
looked the Chinese question in the
faco, taking half measuics, satisfy
ing neither laborer nor Chinese.
Tho first ono hoped to see tho Ce
lestial go, tho second is vexed by
restriction and book-keeping. The
cousequonco is that at next election,
tho Pake will, and is already, ac
cording to rumor in the field, to
bribe, and we know how successful
he generally is in that kind of
business, every -native to vote
against any reform or white candi
date. Beside, the disgusted white
workmen will, unless a criminal
pressure is used by their employers,
vote as a man against the so-called
nussionaiies. What will follow is
easy to foresee : a house under the
control of the Chinese, the tearing
to shreds of the constitution, the
construction of a new one, giving
every Celestial the right of vote,
and flnallyjtho pouring in, (most all
other countries being shut up to
them), of thousands of Mongolians.
Then it will be time for the white
man, rich as well as poor, to make
up his valise, and leave the Para
dise, whoso entrance will bo guard
ed by a pake.
In face of this prospect, let all
the factions of the reform party
forget their petty quarrels, and join
hands with the Government in try
ing to satisfy the whito and native
laborer, by giving him homesteads,
and improving his condition by
every possible means. Civis.
