CONFIRMATION AND INVALIDA
TION. The "Advertisers" San Fran
cisco letter contains the following in
relation to lhe hhooting between the
Get main and natives -at .Samoa:
"The (n im.uis lauded some lioopb
who were at once attacked by a
body of Alalaata's nilhciciil-j led by
J. C. Klein, of the San Franeibco
Examiner." This is a continuation
of a statement in our Sanioan cor
respondence In the lat mail btcamcr
from that region, and an invalidation
of our contemporary's eontiary edi
THE RAILROAD TO PEARL HARBOR.
Mr. II. F. Dillingham's railway
scheme, for connecting the extensive
distiictof l'earl llaibor with Hono
lulu by railroad, has been fully and
lucidly placed before the public.
Mr. Dillingham's coinpieheiibive
outline of the scheme has been pub
lished in the "Daily Pacific Commer
cial Advertiser" and the Daily
BuM.biix, and the majority of per
bons in this city who take an inteiest
theiein must eic this be familial'
with its main fealuies. No part of
the document needs elucidation or
explanation liom us; it clearly ex
, plains itself. Mi. Dillingham e.
plicitly states what is intended to he
done, and what will be the piohable
income I mm the ladroad, ba-ed on
careful estimates, and allowing a
, wide margin for contiugencK s. The
I r'document has alieady bioiight for
.waida gieat man. applicants fm
IioikK, many of lliein lieing men of
comparatively miuII mitii's. And
no wonder, becau-e it is clearly
shown to be a "-afe and piolitable in
vestment. We shall have more lo
say on the subject in the near future.
- A PROJECT OF PROMISE.
It is not many' years ago that the
poi manufacturing and poi ending
business of this district was entirely
in the hands of native llawaiiaus.
To-day it is almost as entiicly in the
hands of the Chinese. The latter
have quietly but quickly supplanted
the former. The Chinaman's supe
rior indusliy, thrift, anil persever
ance have secured him a monopoly
in a line of which he knew nothing
befoie coming to this country. We
are glad to learn that 'sonic Ilaw.ii
ians have conceived the idea of mak
ing an effoit to lecover a poitiou of
their lost ground in this, regard.
Steps have been taken tofoimu
company for the manufacture and
sale of poi, with hopeful promises
of buctcas. There is no doubt that
Honolulu prcbcuts an excellent field
for the operations of such ti com
pany, and with an elllcient manager
and subordinates cannot fail of suc
cess. We know no reason why a
well organised company and a piop
erly conducted mauufactoiy should
not pay, and pay handsomely, loo.
An institution of this uatuie, that
can give butisfaelory insurance of
thorough cleanliness in nil its depart
ments, may safely count upon large
pitronuge fiom our white pppula-
., lion, in ..addition to that which will
naturally como from the natives.
We heni lily wl-h that the initiatory
steps already lal.eu may extend to a
' STOPS SHORT.
The "Advei User's" i eply to our
Interrogatory concerning the ie
moval of the Knknaku building,
.i dodges tho Hiim.i.iin's (iii'stmiis.
Wo wauled to know how much, if
any, the l'ubliu Works Dupiiiliuent
was out in Its estimate of cost j and
wliothcr the nclual cost has 01 1ms
not exceeded tenders that were re
jected because of being too high.
Thu nenrest the "Adveitlser" comes
to an answer is, "that the result has
fully justified the course of the Gov
ernment in 1 ejecting the bids and
undcrtaUinc the woik on it own
account." This h satisfactory so
fnr as it goes, but it stops shott of n
The reason fur our wishing to
know the amount, etc., was for the
settlement of an old scene. About
the time the bids weie lejccted. the
Bullm is hazarded the opiuiutt that
the Government had under-estimated
the cost of that job and the grading
and tilling in of Alakea and Halekau
ila streets, and was foithwith uncere
moniously sat upon by- lhe Uo em
inent oigan for daring to question
the estimates of competent men. In
the grading csiso we now know that
we weie right; and if it be .shown,
which it has not cl been, that we
were wrong in the other, we are
lcitdy to confess our mistake.
Our "snobbish soul," as our cour
teous contempoiary calls it, has the
tenieiily to enticisc unfavorably, in
a cent le kind of way, any Govcni-
ment act which we consider open to
that kind of thing; and the coinage
not lo turn up our "aristocratic
nose" the gentlemanly " Adver
tise!" quoted again at any act
which we believe to be of the right
THE M0L0KA1 SUPEKIHTENDEHCY
Absence fiom duty lor a couple
of days of our editor-in-chief, owing
to indisposition, has thrown us be
hind in some little matters in his
special dopaittncntthat wotiljl other
wise have had prompt attention.
One is a communication published
inurown columns on Tuesday,
from a friendly and highly-esteemed
correspondent, who signed himself
"Independent." Our conespond
ent said, in answer lo our inquny of
the previous day about the supeiin
tendency of the Molokai settlcmcrU,
"It w-jtild be an outrage to dis
charge an able, honest, and experi
enced Miper'uitendent like It. W.
Meyer, meiely for the sake of
giving Mr. Reynolds' an important
position. Mr. Meyer is a Hawaiian
and knows how to Heat and 'peak
lo names. Bc-ides theie is no man
more honest and faitblul in this
kingdom." llaviii' long had lhe
Jionoi of a peixomd acquaintance
with Mr. Meyei, we can and do
gladly endorse eiery woid said by
our correspondent in his favor.
But we do not undeiiland what is
meant by displacing Mi. Meyer for
the sake of giving a position to Mr.
Reynolds. We understood when
the latter gentleman was appointed
that his functions and duties in no
way clashed with those of Mr.
Meyer; that he was to be the local
superintendent resident in the set
tlement, and to haie immediate con
trol of inatleis there, while Mi.
Meyer, as agent of the Boaid of
Health, was general superintendent,
in health matters, of lhe whole is
land ; and that the appointment was
made with the concuircnce of the
latter gentleman. With Ihis- im
pression, we expressed a wish lo
know why Mr. Reynolds had not
taken chaige. No idle curiosity
prompted the inquny. It is a mat
ter of public concern, and many in
quiries havu readied us relative
thereto, fiom laiious sources, in
cluding the settlement" itself. If
theie was any dispfaciflg, that was
a matter the Board should have
cons'ideied before making the ap
pointment. We and the public naturally ex
pect lor they have a right to know
explanation of all such mallei s in
the Government organ, the paper
whicli undeitidics to voice Govern
ment sentiment and is hugely sup
ported by Government patronage,
the "P. (J. Advertibcr." But lhe
organ has not yet opened its mouth
on this matter. In a parnism ot
venom it belched out a slick-full ol
bile about "snobs rampant" and
Russia being a country where the
Bum.i.iis would find no claims of
government by the pcoplo to disturb
the seienity of its "snobbish soul,"
heal lily wishing, no doubt, at tho
sium: lime that the Bui.i.i.ns inm in
Russia or anywhere inther than
Honolulu, but not one woiil iclut
iug to the Molokai matter. It still
