OBSTRUCTIONS TO LIGHT.
The electric light is considerably
curtailed in its usefulness, in parts
of the town, by overhanging branches
of trees. This is an obstruction
which cannot be entirely removed
without producing a greater evil
than the lack of light, viz., a lack
of shade. But there arc certainly
several places where considerable
foliage could be taken away, to the
advantage of the electric light
and not to the disadvantage of
any public benefit whatever. This
seems to u.s a matter of sufficient
importance for the authorities to
give some attention to.
Editou Bn.i.irrix: This morn
ing's "P. C. A." contains a leader
headed the "Australian Ballot Sys
tem," and in that article is the follow
ing: "Let it never be forgotten that
there is and can be but one safe
foundation on which to build a re
presentative system of Govern
ment, and that is the intelligence
and virtue of the voting popula
tion"" Dat sediment is Goot, but
coming from a party that have been
conspicuous in Hooding the country
with ignorant paupers and then giv
ing them a free franchise to secure
their own election Bah! how can
the public catch on ! E. S.
Editor Bulletin: I am neither
a crank nor a growler, but really I
am forced from a sheer sense of de
cency, to feel myself obliged to call
your attention to the now readily
growing habit of the use of offensie
and profane language on the part of
the employees of the Tramway's
cars. On last Saturday, at the
races, it was positively revolting.
If this thing is allowed to go on, it
will become hazardous to take a
lady on the cars. Although an im
provement may be a blessing yet
even that blessing can be dispensed
with, when its enjoyment entails
such risks as the conduct of these
employees exposed the patrons to
Saturday. L, Q.

printed uotices stating the number
of persoiiB to be seated and to be

THE CONSTITUTIONAL LIMITATION
OF SPECIAL APPROPRIATIONS.
Editor Buu.utix: If Parlia
ment set aside a sum of money to
be expended for a certain building
or wharf or bridge, it is supposed
that the grant is made upon careful
and judicious estimates, made by
some expert, or at least by the
Superintendent of Public Works, or
sonic responsible agent. The Couit
says very justly, "the appropriation
would not have been made, if the
Legislature had known that the
grant asked for would be but the
beginning of the expense, the work
cannot be carried out by taking the
deficit from other grants."

ambitious and grasping village an

instructive to see how little the ap
propriation will accomplish on that
30 miles of road, and how much the
district of Ililo will have to spend
there after the incomplete thing is
turned over to them. X.
Editor Bulletin: In the name
of the dwellers upon the plains and
at Waikiki, 1 want to put in a pro
test against the treatment of horses
and mules practised by the Hawaiian
Tramways Co. We have endured
without public complaint tho un
necssary cruelty practised in break
ing in these mules as seen by us
every day. But when these same
soft animals unaccustomed to draw
ing, aie harnessed to two lnavy
tramway cars, and both of these
cars arc not only loaded with pas
sengers but overloaded, so that
every foothold is taken and the poor
animals, frightened and often sore
from incessant beating and other
ill usage, are forced to draw this
load, mere common decency is
foiced to protest. The oveicrowd
ing of the cars which makes it im
possible much of tlio time for a lady
to find a seat or even a standing
place, may bo unavoidable until
more cars can he obtained. But in
this country there is no excuse for
not having a sullicient number of
draught animals, and of men to
drive them. And this wealthy and
well paid corporation ought to be
made to feel that if they have no
regard for the comfort of their ani
mals there is a public sentiment
hero which will not endure such
sights as arc daily seen on King
street and in the vicinity ol
PORTUGUESE AND WASHINGTON
Eon on Bullktik: Will you
kindly allow me space in your paper
to reply to the falsehoods published
in (he Portuguese papeis of Hono
lulu, regarding Washington Terri
tory, and tending to mislead the
Portuguese in these Islands, as to
the climate and resources of that
portion of the United States.
They say that the ground in
AVashington Territory for 7 or 8
months in the year is covered with
snow, leaving only '1 or fl months in
winch to raise a crop, and which
can only be done once a year, ad
mitting, that there is a plenty of
land there and to be had very cheap,
but calling on tho Portuguese to re
member that anything that is cheap
is not good.
Now regarding the climate of
Washington Territory, I am told by
people who have lived there, that
some years they have hardly any
snow, not as much as they would
like to have, that tho thermometer
is never down to zero, and that it is
one of the healthiest places on the
Then they go on to say Hint these
islands is the place for the Portu
guese, comparing these specs in the
Pacific Ocean to that land of the
free, that stretches from ocenn to
ocean, where every one has an equal
chance with his neighbor.
What are these Islandb, where
sugar is the only product raised of
any account, to Washington Terri
tory, with its I.'l.OOO.OOO acres, its
200 miles of sea-coast, its vast for
rests, coal mines, and giain fields,
its numerous cities, towns and vil
lages springing up nil tho time, and
growing steadily in size and popula
tion, not rctrognding as this country
That territory has already 2d Na-
tlonal banks, besides 2!1 Territorial
and private banks. I am sorry to
sec tho Portuguese papers publish
ing such articles, and trying to put
stumbling blocks in tlio way, to pre
vent their countrymen from going
where they can better themselves in
But then they know that if tho
Portuguese all leave, they will have
to keep up publishing their papers,
and what hurts the pockets of peo
ple is sure to bias them in their
opinion, and that 1 think is the
main trouble with the proprietors of
the Portuguese papers published in
Honolulu. M. G. Coukea.
Ililo, Feb. 21st, 1889.
Editor Bulletin: There has
been much said upon educational
matters in these islands j and now,
with your permission, I wish to lay
before the public a view from my
Having been laboring as a public
servant in its cause for more than
five years ; and carefully and indus
triously trying various methods and
means to instil and draw out the
native's knowledge of English, I
feel more confidence in my own
ability than I did when 1 first took
hold of the work. I have learned
and am perfectly convinced that the
best means of dealing with any
child's mind, be it cither Hawaiian
or foreign, is to explain an unknown
term by one that is known.
This method the Inspector-General
of to-day seems to entirely
ignore, as he cares for not a word
of the Hawaiian language to be
used in the English schools.
In all of onr American colleges
where Latin and Greek is taught,
it is taught with the aid of a lexi
con. 1 hold that a word is of no use
unless its meaning is known. A
teacher cannot always have the ob
ject present in the schoolroom.
A little child enters into the
father's studio and says, "Papa,
let's take a walk down town." The
father, who has been accustomed to
take a walk with the child, and
often purchased sweetmeats or
candy, immediately catches the idea
that it means canity, although the
child does not use the word.
I agree with Mr. Kuudsen that
the more thoroughly a teacher
is acquainted with both the English
and Hawaiian, he becomes a better
instructor in our eliools here, and
in this I think the public mind would
An inspector is a public servant
and the more carol nl 1 v he serves the
public so much the more will the
cause of education bo piomoted.
Merc political prelerment does
not make a good Inspector, nor
should it at all enter into the minds
of those l3r whom he is selected.
Tho Boaid of Education empha
sizes kindness. gentleness, regard for
tho feelings of others to bo taught.
"Example, is. better than precept."
When an Inspector enters into a
schooliooni in a riide,ungeiitlemanly,
boisteious manner and addresses
little children in a voce better
adapted for driving oxen or mules
in the back woods, and with a pur
pose of intimidating both children
and teacher, he is not the ri;lit man
in the right place, nor 13 he carry
ing out the idea of kindness laid
down by the Board.
When a school is making all the
progress it is capable of, and the
parents and scholars well pleased,
as I have every reason to believe in
many cases, is an Inspector serving
the public faithfully when he kicks
a teacher out simply because he per
sonally may have been .a little
Teachers have as much right to
their homos in this county as the
Inspector, and are a little sensitive
about being kicked from pillar to
post, to suit his own august ma
Then, too, is it a wise policy the
present Board of Education are
pursuing in letting their old true
and tried servants out who have
lights and homos here, and inter
ests identified, for the sake of im
porting teachers from a foreign
country by the boat load? What
can they hope to gain for the cause
It may bo they design populating
the country in that way, for usu
ally teachers are so poor they can't
get away. Truly, this is not the
longed-for reform. No man can
jump into the educational woik here
more than he can into any other.
