FRIDAY, MARCH' I, 1889.
The Bri.i.uTix lias many times
said, and now says again, that there
is no good reason why, at least, our
wholesale business establishments
should not close at noon, or shortly
after, on Saturdays, thus giving
their employees a halt-holiday. The
proprietors of those establishments
may say that it is none of our busi
ness what time they close, or open.
Neither is it. Iut we lake the
liberty to agitate the matter, all the
same, in the interest of the em
ployees. Moreover, we have the as
surance that some ol the leading
firms look with favor upon the pro
position, and would gladly close at
noon on Saturdays, provided their
neighbors did the same. Whj can
not they -all agree among themselves
to do so ?
At the Waikiki terminus of the
tramway, near the bridge, the road
way is very narrow. On the sea
side of the road is a barbed wire
fence. This fence, owing to the
narrowness of the roadway, is a
menace to safety. With the gath
ering of a crowd at that spot, which
is bound to occur on all occasions
of special attraction at Kapiolani
Park, the quietest horse is liable, in
passing, to bring the legs of its rider
and its own side into contact with
the barbs, lacerating both man and
beast; and on all ordinary occa
sions, when a car is standing at the
terminus, a skittish horse has but
to make a slight swerve to reach the
dangerous wire. Public safety
would be enhanced by the substitu
tion of some other material for the
A medical gentleman states that
in his professional practice ten cases
of diarrhoea and vomiting have come
to his notice in three days eight
children and two adults. The gen
tleman referred to says that he can
account for the trouble only on the
supposition of impure water, and
would caution people against the
use of water for drinking purposes
at the present time without first fil
tering or boiling it, or both. It is
admitted thai our public water sup
ply is far fiom absolute purity at
any time, and it may be that now its
bulk is so much diminished, through
lack of rain, its impurity is aug
mented. It ccitainly would lie a
wise precaution to submit the fluid
to the purifying processes of filter
ing and boiling before introducing it
to the stomach. Thereby much suf
fering and even death may bo

According to the "Fiji Shimpo"
there are twenty cotton factories
now in operation in Japan with a
total of 82,080 spindles. There arc
also twenty factories in process of
establishment.or extension, with an
estimated capacity of 180,080 spindles.
KniTou Rtn.i.irm : To tell the
Huixr.TiN all it wants to know, one
would have to be possessed of more
than extraordinary attainments, and
oven then, if one's mind was, as well
stored ni an Kncydopncdin, the Ar
gus eyes of the Hii.i.iux would
surely ferret out some defection, and
launch its thundci s of conection in
return. Nevertheless, 1 will express
my views humble as they are in
answer to the query about the side
walks. To me it anncars that the owners
of propel ties are the owners of the
soil of the sidewalks, over which the
municipality or government has the
casement or right of way for the use
of its citizens. This 1 think is a
common law doctrine, arising out of
the requirements of men, in their
association together in those com
munities known as governments, and
called in the law the relative, or
such richlB as they owe to each
other, and consequently the govern
ment, in return lor the protection
and advantages accorded them as
members of that community. The
easement of the municipality is as
absolute and as well dciiucd as the
fee simple right of the owner in the
soil, and may almost be termed con
current rights; consequently this
being the case, the repairs necessary
to be made to such sidewalks, bor
dering on the property owned by
the government, must bo kept in
good repair by the individual own
ers, and in failing to do so, could be
done by the authorities, and the ex
pense of such repair, made a lien on
the property to which the sidewalk
is attached, as is done in several
cities of the Slates. Public conve
nience and public safety depend in
a goodly measure upon the safe con
ditions of the sidewalks and as the
government is nothing but the pub
lic, where is there a parity of reason
in the project, of having one man's
property (ami as the case might be
the only one in the block) repaired
at the expense of his immediate
neighbors? The property-owner
simply grants the right of way over
that portion of his property that
constitutes the sidewalk, in return
for the protection accorded him, and
for the convenience enjoyed by oth
ers doing likewise. He does not
part wilii his fee simple title, but
holds it, subject to the government's
right of casement. This 1 feel cer
tain is the common law, and if this
kingdom has any special law govern
ing the subject, I have not as yet
been able to iind it. L. Q.
R. L. STEVtNSONATTHEBOlTOm
OF THE SEA.
Mr. Stevenson's chat in a recent
number of Scribncr's is enlivened
by an account of an adventure un
der water. Air. Stevenson, it should
be explained, was once going to be
an engineer. Happily for the wot Id
that is, the woild that reads books
and magazines Fate made him a
writer instead. Once in the engi
neer period he got a diver to let him
visit the foundations of a pier in
course of construction.
It was grey, harsh, easterly
weather, the swell ran pretty high,
and out in the open there were
"skipper's daughters," when I found
myself at last on the diver's plat
form, twenty pounds of lead under
each foot and my whole person
swollen with ply and ply of woellen
underclothing. One moment, the
salt wind was whistling lound my
night capped head ; the next, I was
crushed almost double under the
weight of the helmet. As that in
tolerable burden was laid upon me,
1 could have found it in my heart
(only for shame's sake) to cry off
from the whole enterprise. Hut it
was too late. The attendants began
to turn the hurdy-gurdy and
the air to whistle through the tube ;
someone screwed in the barred win
dow of the vizor, and 1 was cut off
in a moment from my fellow-men ;
standing there in the midst, but
quite divorced from intercourse a
creature deaf and dumb, pathetically
looking forth upon them from a
climate of his own. Except that 1
could move and feel, I was like a
man fallen in a catalepsy. Hut time
was scarce given me to realise my
isolation; the weights were hung
upon my back and breast, the signal
rope was trust into my unresisting
hand, and, setting a twenty-pound
toot upon the ladder, 1 began pon
derously to descend. Some twenty
rounds below the platform, twilight
fell, hooking up, I saw a low green
heaven mottled with vanishing bells
of white ; looking around, except
for the weedy spokes and shafts of
the ladder, nothing but a gieen
gloaming, somewhat opaque but
very restful and delicious. Thirty
rounds lower 1 blcppfd off on the
pierrex pirJuut of the foundation ;
a dumb lieluieted figure tonic me by
the bund, anil made a gesture (as 1
read it) of cucuiuagemcnt; and
looking in at the creature's window,
J beheld the face of Hain. There
we were, hand to hand and (when
it pleased us) ee to eye; and cither
might have buist himself with shout
ing, and not a whisper come to his
companion's hearing. Each in his
own little world of air, stood incom
Hob had told ere this a little talc,
n five minutes' drama at the bottom
of the sea, which at that moment
possibly shot across my mind. Ho
was down with another, settling a
stone of tho sea-wall. They had it
well adjusted, Hob gave the signal,
the scissors were slipped, the stone
set home; and it was time to turn to
something clso. Hut still his com
panion remained bowed over the
DAILY E0LU3TlNf HONOLULU, H, I., MAKCH 1, i&
block like a mourner on a tomb, or
only raised himself to make absurd
contortions and mysloiious signs un
known to the vocabulary of the
diver. There, then, these two stood
for a while, like the dead and the
living; till there flashed a fortunate
thought into Hob's mind, and lie
sloopcd, peered through the window
of that other world, and beheld the
face of its inhabitant wet with
streaming tears. All I the man was
in pain. And Hob glancing down
ward saw what was the trouble; the
block had been lowered on the foot
of that unfortunate he was caught
alive at the bottom of the sea under
fifteen tons of rock.
As I began to go forward with the
hand of my estranged companion, a
world of tumbled stones was visible,
pillared with the weedy uprights of
the staging ; overhead a Hat roof of
green ; a little in front, the sea-wall,
like an unfinished rampart. And
presently, in our upward progress,
Hob motioned me to leap upon a
stone. I looked to sec if he were
possibly in earnest, and he only
signed to mo the more imperiously.
Now the block stood six feet high ;
it would have been quite a leap to
me unencumbered ; with the breast
and back weights, and the twenty
pounds upon each fool, and tho
staggering load of the helmet, the
thing was out of reason. 1 laughed
aloud in my tomb ; and to prove to
Hob how far he was astray, J gave a
little impulse from my toes. Up 1
soared like a bird, my companion
soaring at my side. As high as to
the stone, and then higher, I pur
sued my impotent and empty flight.
Even when the sliong arm of Hob
had checked my shoulders, my heels
continued their ascent; so that 1
blew out sideways like an autumn
leaf, and must be hauled in, hand
over hand, as sailors haul in the
slack of a pail, and propped upon
my feet again like an intoxicated
sparrow. Yet a little higher on the
foundation, and wc began to be
effected by the bottom of the swell,
running there like a strong breeze
of wind. Or so I must suppose;
for, safe in my cushion of air, J was
conscious of no impact; only swayed
idlyhke a weed, and was now borne
helplessly abroad, and now swiftly
and yet with dream like gentle
ness impelled against my guide,
ho docs a chilli's balloon divagate
upon the currents of the air, and
touch and slide off again from every
obstacle. So must have ineffec
tually swung, so icacntcd their in
clliciency, those 'Might crowds" that
followed the Star of Hades and
uttered "exiguous voices" in the
land beyond Cocylus. Exchange.

The town of Arroyo Grande is on
the boundary liue between Arizona
and Mexico, a fact which enables
the topers to work an old game.
They step into a saloon on the Ari
zona side and ask for a drink, laying
down an Aineiicau dollar. The
chances are that the bar-keeper will
give them a Mexican dollar in
change, it being worth only 00 cents.
Then they strike a saloon on the
Mexican side and tender the Mexi
can dollar for change, which in this
case is worth only 1)0 cents. The
truthful editor of the "Arizona
Howler" says that the practice has
