WHAT THE "BULLETIN" WOULD
LIKE TO KNOW.
Whether our sidewalks are public
or private property. If public pio-
perty, why are they not constructed
and kept in repair at public ex
pense? If private property, why
cannot they be obstuictcd at vill by
Whether Alakcn street is to be
widened from end to end, or whether
the widening process is to be con
fined to that put lion between Rcrc
tania and Hotel streets.
Whether the authorities will ever
put a stop to fast driving through
the streets and around corners.
Considering that the neighbor
hood of Waikiki bridge has become
a ccntio of gathering, owing to its
being the terminus of the tramway,
whether it would not be wise to
keep a policeman permanently sta
SCARCITY OF WATER.
The scarcity of water is becoming
a serious mailer. Everybody knows
that the winter, so far, lias been a
rematkably dry one. The rains
during the past summer were unusu
ally copious and pretty ecnly dis
tributed through the season ; but
the winter commenced dry, has con
tinued so, and according to appear
ances is likely to keep on in the
same way to the end. The whole
districl ia buffering. Taro and ba
nana raisers, and, in fact, all des
criptions of cultivators, complain of
a deficiency of moistutc, which, if
not shortly supplied by rain, will be
irreparabl ruinous to them. Of
course, the city supply lor domestic
purposes is proportionally diminish
ed, and unless the source ilsclf be
comes leplcnished from the clouds
in a short time, an inconvenient
shortage will bo the result. Under
the ehcumstances, it behooves Up
holders of water piivilcges to be
careful and fepaiing in the use of
water. It is a fact that the irriga
tion regulations are not strictly o)
bcrved by all. The Superintendent
of Water Works has given due warn
ing, and it will be his duty to visit
with severity all offenders. lie is
determined to do his duty in this
regaid. Let this warning be taken
timely notice of.
Kmtou Buu.i.tix: Jn your issue
of the 2."th your correspondent
"Xerxes" opened an important
field for discussion; to wit, "School
Matters.'' Xot being a school
teacher myself, and ignorant of the
statements he applied to the In
spector, J cannot endorse them, or
otherwise ; but an inspector of
schools is a public servant, and as
such he cannot exercise personali
ties between himself and the teacher
of a private nature. As to the mode
of teaching, they may be vaiious.
Looking from my own standpoint, I
suggest the following: A teacher
teaching English to Hawaiian chil
dren must know Hawaiian himself,
in order that he can make himself
understood. A teacher who does
not know a woul of Hawaiian may
as well talk and explain himself to a
dumb animal, as to native children
who do not know a word of English.
He might as well teach them En
glish thiough Chinese. And when
lie wants to explain an object which
he docs not have in the room at the
time, I am at a loss to know how he
can accomplish it. For instance, he
writes the word C-A-T,and gets the
children to say it correctly, he be
gins to explain it to them, what it
is, by saying that it is a small ani
mal covered with soft hair, has four
feet, (making motions as he goes
on),',with elawsctcjetc, and when
he gets through they will not know
any more about it than when he
commenced, and all his efforts and
wrigglings to and fro, and pointing
to every part of his person, from
hair to toe nail, will all be useless
and waste of time. But had he
known what it was in native, one
word of it, uttered in a second,
would accomplish the unaccomplish
ed work of 30 minutes.
Again, translation is an import
ant study to advanced giades,
translating English into Hawaiian,
and Hawaiian into English, but how
can it be carried out if the teacher
docs not know both languages?
Summariziiiff these proofs of tho
neccssitj- of having teachers who
know native, I agree with your cor
respondent wlan he objects to the
importation ol teachers fiom abroad
when there aro sulllcient and better
teachers already at home.
Believing that it is enough for tho
time being, I remain,
Kmtou Ul-u.i-.tin : There appears
to me to bo n great difference in the
way in which the government and
private strect-spritiklcis aic woikcd.
The former ju3t lays the dust down,
while ' the latter ' almost tloods the
sheets in some places, making it
very disagreeable in closing from
one side to the other. A hltle more
judgment might boused, 1 think, in
the ease of the latter. t'mzus.
THE WATER SUPPLY.
Kditou Bi-lu-tin': It is stated
on good authority tLat unless good
rains should set m shortly in this
city, the Government will bo neces
sitated to forbid all kind of irriga
tion here within the space of one
week. Would it not be high time
to make u commencement immedi
ately by stopping tho irrigation of
all the thoroughfares in and about
this city, thus saving that amount of
water for future needs?
Also, would the Government not
bo wise and perfectly justified to
place the artesian wells about this
city under some control and not fur
ther allow that waste of valuable
water which is injudiciously prac
tised by thoughtless owners of such
"GROWLS AND HOWLS."
Eoitok 1)ii.u:tin : "Growls and
Howls" says in this morning's 1'. C.
A., that wc have a class of people
amongst us whose motto seems to bo
that "whatever is, is wrong."
Had he believed in himself he would
have written "whatever is wrong, is
wrong," and that those that do
wrong, even that good may come,
be it party or person, will surely
suffer. SVe will contend for you
that the toils of your fathers were
honest even to charging 21 percent. (
but was it consistent for you cither
from v, political or religious point of
view to grant the Portuguese a free
franchise. You certainly will not
object to taking in 1S90 what you
granted so freely in 1887. They
may not be as ambitious as you was
to grasp the reins of Government.
They may be contented and you arc
not, with part of your abundance.
The- will know enough to vote for
it, and what they don't know their
church, not yours, will show them.
REPLY TO M. G. CORREA.
Kunon Bullltin: That vciy
weak article signed by JLr. M. G.
Correa, of Ililo, which appealed in
Monday's issue of your valuable
"Daily," attacking the Portuguese
newspapers of Honolulu lor daring
to oppose his patriotic scheme ot
depopulating the islands, hardly
calls for a rcpty yet, a a share
holder in the "Luso Ilawaiiauo," I
feel that his implied compliment to
our financial status is altogether too
llattering to be passed without
notice. -Mr. Conea attributes our
opposition to a morbid dread of
having to Stop publishing the
"Luso," and thus lelinquishing the
colossal income wo have all been
dci iving from this source since the
paper started I
Our printers arc the pnly parties
who make a living out of our paper,
(not an easy one either). Our sub
scription list includes pretty nearly
evciy possible subscriber in the
country, and our advertising columns
speak for themselves, thanks to the
liberality of our business commu
nity; yet, wc wish to assure Mr.
Correa that we have not made a
nickel since wc started and if we
have paid expenses it is because
much of the work is done free of
charge, and what salaries we do pay
are nominal, and in fact fluctuate
according to the ebb and How in our
When the present company took
charge of the paper they were quite
aware that assessements would he
much more likely than dividends,
but fortunately wc have pegged
along ho far without either. The
"Luso" company is purely patrio
tic. Nothing whatever but pure
patriotism called it into existence,
and its only object is to be of ser
vice to the Portuguese-Hawaiian
colony. We have always advised
our people to Htay here and make
this country their country ; we have
long since considered it our home,
and we think it is good enough for
them too. I might add that it has
proved a pretty good codntry for
Mr. Correa, who tried the States be
fore he came here.
Mr. Correa is an old friend of
ours and wc wish he had gone into
any other speculation but this. It
is carrying unscrupulousness too
far, to jeopardize the future of hun
dreds of families for the sake of u
few paltry dollars.
At the same time, the disastrous
results to the couutiy, ot such an
exodus as is proposed, can scarcely
be underestimated, and wo do trust
that all reasonable measures will bo
taken to induce the Portuguese al
ready here to stay ; but suggest that
more he introduced, without delay,
to replace those aheady gone, and
that tho Government proceed more
blowly with the Japanese immigra
tion. IIm Lusitano.

. A LARGE FLOATING EXHIBITION.
The German Export Society has
raised 5,000,000 marks (250,000)
for the purpose of constructing a
huge floating exhibition palace.
The plan is to sail from port to
port, and to endeavor to demon
strate the supoiioiity of German
manufactures. "International exhi
bitions," according to the pioipco
tus, "do not occur often enough,
and must be supplemented in this
way." The vessel is to be called
the Kaiser Wilhelm, and will be
built in a German shipyard, and
upon a scale more magnificent than
that of any craft afloat. According
to the plans, tho ship will be oG4ft.
long, OGft. wide, and 4Gft. high.
She will have four sets of engines,
propelling as many screws. The
material will be principally German
steel. The cost of a two years'
tour is estimated at 3,150,000
marks. The income from the rented
space 1000 to 1200 mail's for
each store and from sales will bo,
it is thought, at least 7,2GO,000
marks, leaving a balance of 4,1 10,
800, or over 2,000,000 marks
(200,000) annually a pretty sum
on the pages of tho ledger. It is
hoped that the vessel will sail from
llambuig on her first voyage in the
the spring of 1800. The scheme is
nearly as ambitious as and in
some respects more adventurous
than that of the Great Eastern
(which was G02ft. long, 83ft. beam,
and 58ft. depth of hold), nnd the
abject fate of that good old vessel,
recently sold as old iron, and in the
course of being broken up, ought to
act as a warning to the promoters of
the German undertaking. Iron.
A year ago Helen Kcllar, a seven-year-old
blind, deaf and dumb child,
was bi ought to this city from Ala
bama to he educated, if possible.
She has been in charge of teachers
at the Blind Asylum and has devel
oped wondcrlul powers of observa
tion and extraordinary intelligence.
It has been ascertained beyond the
possibility of a doubt that Helen
has not the slightest perception of
light or sounds. She is totally blind
and deaf, but the acutencss of her
remaining senses, and especially of
touch and feeling, generally has
been brougnt to perlection by con
stant exeicisc. She recognizes her
friends as soon as her fingers conic
in contact with them, cither with
their own hands 01 their dress, and
not the faintest odor escapes her
notice. She is p:"--ionately fond of
music, and tells about going to
church to hear the- organ. "When
any one begins playing cither oigan
or the piano her brain is informed
of the fact 1)3' the vibrations of the
floor. She is very fond of dancing,
having learned it by feeling the
motions of the feet and the bending
of the knees of a little companion
who was trying to teach her. Helen's
mind has developed icmaikably dur
ing the past year. Her vocabulary
has increased to such an extent as
to comprehend more than 3000 words
which she can spell without a mis
take and employ accurately in com
position. One thing that may be
mentioned at possessing peculiar
psychological interest is the fact
that her dreams, like those of all
other persons, are the result of the
spontaneous action of her mental
faculties. They arc accurately mo
deled on the experiences of her
waking life, producing sensations
similar in kind to those received in
bet slate of consciousness, but with
out order or congiuity, because un
controlled by her will. Physically
and mentally she is no way behind
any child in years. Chicago Her
