Following is what the latest issue
of the Hilcf"l!eeord" bays:
By the last advices from the
States, it seems that the Canadian,
Vancouver, and Australian eahle is
still an uncertain problem. If that
cable is ever laid it. w ill touch at
these islands, probably at llilo, as
the route this way i-i much shorter
than by way of Honolulu. And it
will he more certain of stopping
here, if our inter-island cables are
all laid and in working order.
By our latest advices from Hono
lulu, the cable connecting Onhu,
Molokai, and Maui, is almost Finish
ed and will bo sent from British Co
lumbia by schooner as soon as Fin
ished. The cable is to laud at some point
on the western end of Molokai, run
across that island to near the east
ern end with overland wire, cross
the channel to Kaanapali, Wailuku
and liana. Where the company can
connect with already existing land
lines, it will do so. The next step
will be the crossing of the Hawaii
channel. We hope that the Ilama
kua and Kohala companies will have
connected by that time, and then
llilo will have direct telegraphic
communication to Honolulu. It
does not seem to many that the
inter-island cables can be made to
pay. But we arc daily Finding that
progress, follows any such enter
prise, and we most lirmly believe
that in a year or two, cable stock
cannot he bought at any price. We
ought to have telephonic communi
cation with Kau and Kona. But
there is a long dreary stretch be
tween llilo and the. Volcano, and
then on to Kapapala, Kau, over
which no company can carry a line
with any prospect of its being made
It will be necessary for the Gov
ernment to do something in its aid
and we must direct our next Legis
lature to get a subsidy for that part
of our line. The world now-a-days
does not wait for its news, or busi
ness to be transacted by means of
horse-power, but requites the
speediest methods for transmission
of news. And we cannot lag be
hind. THE HOMESTEAD AGT.
Eimtoh Buuxtin: As some jing
ling rhymslcr tried to amuse himself
and the public in your columns last
evening, by slurring the Govern
ment in connection with the Home
stead Act, I trust you will Find space
lor a few more words on that sub
ject. Logic is wasted, and reason
thrown away on him who neither
understands or desires either. So
addressing myself not to your even
ing poet, but to the fairer minded
portions of your readers, 1 would
call attention to the following facts:
The present Government is carrying
out a law, which, perfect or iinpcr
fectt was the woik of the legislature
of the dear old days of 1884, and
which law was almost totally ignored
until the advent of tho piesent Min
istry. The "rocks," "marshes,"
etc., at which your poet llings are
not only tho best the Government
can offer they aro all it can offer.
Instead ol being located "nowhere,"
they have been surveyed with labor
and precision, and (probably worse
than all in your poet's eyes), these
homestead lots are being steadily
taken up and occupied, and a rea
sonable succsh in the matter has
been already achieved. If your
rhymslcr will inform the Govern
ment where it can ibid nioro land,
better land, or better methods of
survey and distribution, he will at
tain to a distinction which it is safe
to say he does not now enjoy.
Oni: who knows.
BELLS OH THE TRAMWAY HORSES.
Eimtoh Buu.ms: Mr. Gribhlc
in' his communication of yesterday,
invites suggestions from the public,
as to the Tramways Company. Al
though his words would import a
request only for suggestions in a
particular line, yet, as I think the
invitation can be construed in a gen
eral way. I will venture one. Would
it not be a good idea for the com
pany to follow the practice of simi
lar corporation1 in the States, by af
fixing to the colhus or hnrness of
the horses or mules small bells r
These bells, in serving a dual pur
pose, would soon become a pro
nounced convenience to the public.
Firstly: They v,ould servo as 11
warning of the approach of the cars,
thereby allowing a customer to
either remain in his house until the
car had come within a comfortable
distance, or else whilst awaiting its
coming, seek some congenial shade.
Secondly : These bells would serve
to warnpedestrians of the nearness
of the cars, becoming an additional
precaution against possible acci
dents. To me it seems quite a fea
sible idea, the practical results of
which would soon more than doubly
repay the costs. A Si-fior.sTi'.n.
The most perfect home I ever saw
was a little house into the sweet in
cense of whose Fires wont no costly
things. A thousand dollars served
as a year's living for father, mother
and three children. But the mother
was the creator of a home ; her rela
tions with the children were the
moat beautiful I have ever seen.
Every inmate of the house involun
tarily looked into her face for the
keynote of the clay, and it always
rang clear. From the rosebud, or
clover leaf, which, in spite of her
hard housework, she always found
time to put beside our plate at
breakfast, down to the story she
had in hand to read in the evening,
there was no intermission of her In
fluence. She has always been and
will always be my ideal of a mother,
wife ami home-maker. If to her
quick brain, loving heart and ex
quisite face had been added the ap
pliances of wealth and enlargements
of wide culture, hers would have
been absolutely the ideal home
it was, it was the best I have
seen. pl'lie late Helen Hunt.
THE FIRST IDEA OF FRANCE.
The world can never be sure at
any time that a revolution may not
overthrow the French Republic. A
foreign correspondent well says that
ever since 1870 the great majority
of the French people have looked
forward to "the day of retribution,"
when Germany shall be compelled
to give back Alsace and Lorraine,
and if the republic will not lead
them to that end, theyj will seek
some form of government that will.
A CHECK ON SHORT WEIGHT.
Several of the big buildings of
Philadelphia have recently had plac
ed in them scales with a hopper re
ceptacle capable of holding several
tons of coal. Thej are situated un
der the sidewalk chutes, and the
coal is dumped directly into the
hopper from the cart and then
weighed. The engineer of one of
these buildings says that thus assur
ing full weight in the coal he buys,
he saves the value of tho scales
many times during the year.
DEPRECIATION OF SILVER.
Mexico lias probably suffered
more than any other country from
the steady depreciation of silver, for
the reason that it is her principal
article of export. An attempt to
help matters was made in the law of
June 0, 1887, which aimed to dimi
nish the cost of production of the
metal by the removal of various
domestic taxes. The resulting gain
has been slight, though the miners
arc grateful even for that. Just
now u new "blow at Mexican silver"
is being aimed by Spain. Some time
ago that country ordered the dis
continuance of the circulation of the
Mexican dollar in. the Philippine
Islands, and now proposes to coin a
"colonial dollar" for use in Cuba
and Porto IJico, as well as in her
colonial possessions of the East.
This will not only cut off an exist
ing demand for Mexican silver, but
will throw back upon the Mexican
Government a part of the outstand
ing coinage. Fear of this may have
been the spur urging on the Mexi
can Chamber to the latest law upon
the subject. This measure, which
passed its first reading on Novem
ber 18th, directs the President to
exert himself to procure an agree
ment among the Latin countries,
England and tho United States for
the use of an international silver
coin. Tho debate was only notable
for bringing to light what is prob
ably a new epithet among the many
astonishing ones applied to silver;
a deputy called it "tho red globules
in tho blood of commerce." As to
the project itself, it will undoubted
ly come up in some shape before tho
coming American Congress, from
which gathering more may be ex
pected than from the simple initia
tive of Mexico. Among the great
practical dilliculties in the way of
the bchenus may be 'mentioned the
widely varying monetary units of
thu South Amciican States. To
make a coin easily exchangeable
with them all would almost require
higher mathematics of tho kind
Robert Morris proposed to employ
to harmonize the dilfeient monetary
units of the Confederation. Bos

CHINESE SECRET SOCIETIES IN
A bill of very great importance
has been laid before the Legislative
Council of tho Straits Settlements.
It is ostensibly designed to deal
with Chinese associations, but prac
tically it is intended to suppress all
Chinese scctet societies, which liavo
been a pest all over the Malay Pen
insula, and have led to assassina
tion, resistance to authority and
public disturbances. A dispatch
from tho Governor to the Secretary
of State discussing the whole sub
ject had been laid upon the table.
In it Sir Cecil Smith expressed the
opinion that the time had now come
for dealing with the secret societies
in a final and thorough manner. The
bill proposes to give the local gov
ernment fuller powers of controlling
and suppressing what arc known as
secret societies. Every society of
moic than two persons, with certain
exceptions, will bo unlawful unless
registered under the law, and no
society can be registered without the
approval of the Governor in Coun
cil. Existing societies registered
under the existing law must obtain
that approval, and register them
selves within three months after the
comencement of the new law, under
pain of being treated as unlawful
societies. The onus of showing that
a particular society is not one re
quiring registration is thrown on
those accused of belonging to it,
and for this purpose, accused per
sons are empowered to give evi
dence on their own behalf. The
Governor in Council may dissolve a
society, and thereupon its property
will vest in the olllcial assignee in
bankruptcy, and it will be divided
among the members. Power is
civen to the authorities to summon
before them persons who can give
any information respecting the ex
istence ol any unlawful society or
the operations of any society.
London Times, Jan. 19.
THE AMERICAN POLITICIAN.
Good society keeps prudently
aloof from politics and politicians.
Enlightened, educated, well-bred
people have no desire to be con
founded with the heroes of the
slump and stand back; the rich
financiers and merchants are too
busy to take up politics ; the Sena
tors and Congressmen arc more or
less the chosen of the common peo
ple, and good si eiety says: "No,
thank you, I differ to stay at
home." Thus it is that the gtound
remains clear for the noisy medio
crites, and th.it a gentleman lias only
to mix himself up in politics to be
come a dcclussc. lie must reach
the "White House to inspire a little
The American gentleman has not
the least ambition to see his fair
name dragged in the mud, to bear
himself nicknamed "Honest John."
"Jolly Roger," or what not. He
takes a joke as well as another, but
if you were to call him "Senator"
or "Congressman" he would have
you up lor defamation of character.
The President himself does not
altogether escape the contempt which
the politician inspiics in the man of
refinement. When I was asked in
America what celebrities I had met
I generally answered: "First of all
I have had the honor of paying my
respects" to your President." I in
variably missed my effect. "Ah,
really?" people would say to me,
"I sec but, there, you are a for
eigner." This was an excuse, I
suppose, for the Americans did not
shut their doors upon me. From
