Education Office, May 1, 1889.
Competition in trade when open,
square, and honorable is worthy of
encouragement. Bui competition is
not always of this character. It
often descends to despicable, under
handed meanness; then it becomes
one of those things whose perpetra
tors forfeit the respect and confi
dence of honorable men. I have
known of many such acts, ami have
despised the actors. But about the
meanest thing in tho way of compe
tition I ever heard of has lately
come to 1113" knowledge. Tom en
gages to perform n ceitain service
for Dick, at a fnir and reasonable
price. Harry, who makes a living
in the same line of uvocation as
Tom, goes to Dick and says : "Look
hero: if you take that job away
from Tom and tabu his doing it, 1
will do it for you free of charge."
If you can show mu a meaner thing
than Hint, I will put up the cigars
and J. 15. Brown's soda water.

SATURDAY. MAY !, 1889.
Is there any truth in the report
that the Attorney-General has pro
hibited the natives meeting in the
old Armory, to talk matters which
take in politics? 1 hope not. Surely
that gentleman if not such a fool as
to cut hia own throat in that kind of
It may be that we have
rather too much politics in the
country. I rather think so n'self.
But any attempt to suffocate the
animal in that manner is bound to
make him kick the life out of the
Tho Punchbowl road, which many
people may by-and-by use but no
body really needs, is progressing,
while Kaahumanu street and other
thoroughfares, which everybody do
and must of necessity use, remain
as they were, in a miserable state of
disrepair. Herein the Government
shows a prodigious capacity for put
ting the cart befoic tho horse. In
the minds of practical, common
sense men, the necessary and useful
alwajs takes precedence of the orna
mental or what merely contributes
to pleasure. Our Interior Depart
ment has a nack of reversing the or
der, and making the cart go ahead
of the horse. Gifted men, no doubt,
but the altered position of the legs
and wheels looks ludicrous and in-congiuous.
Just look at "Equity's" audacity
in speaking so contemptuously of
the native Hawaiians! Reynolds is
a brick. He came out like a man
in defence of the wronged natives.
The Hawaiian has his faults and
failings, like other people and my
self, but he is not the idiot that
"Equity" tries to make him out to
be. Let "Equity" ponder this one
fact: Every native Hawaiian be
tween the ages of twelve and thiity
years can read and write his own
language. Can that be said of any
three other nationalities of the
world? I doubt it. One of the as
tonishing things about the aborigin
als of this country is, that their
mental capacity and attainments will
compare favorably with those of any
of the white races in the same grade
"What is this we hear about police
man not being on "Nuuanu avenue
and other placei where they are
needed? "Why Ueci not the Marshal
place policemen there? Perhaps he
may repty that he is not to blame.
But who is to blame? I don't think
the Legislatuieis,forit was ready to
vote whatever was asked for by the
Ministers. Then why was there an
insufficiency appropriated? I sus
pect that the Ministers cut down tho
necessaries, of which the police de
partment is one, as low as possible,
to allow for the Punchbowl and
other schemes, which althougn not
quite so bad as the Kaimiloa and
Genealogy rackets, point that way ;
and so the Marshal has not the
means to provide for the adequate
protection of the chickens and other
property of the taxpayers. This,
mind you, is a private suspicion,
which has hovered around me for a
long timo past, but if it should piovo
erroneous, then the responsibility of
insufficient police protection must
rest upon the Marshal's shoulders.
"Liberty of thought and freedom
of speech" is what some people do
not believe in. These are rights
secured to all by the constitution,
but more than one person in this
community would like to have the
clause stricken from that document.
One of these said in effect to me
recently: "We now have a faultless
government, and you fellows who
find fault ought to be compelled to
shut up or clear out." I (Ion t see
things through this gentleman's
glasses, and had lie the power he
would take fiom me the liberty to
view them through any other. I
am told of another person who has
intimated very' plainly to his em
ployees that their political opinions
must agree with his. What a pity
that men can be born with such
small minds and saturated with such
narrow prejudices, that they uould
if they could shackle the minds ot
others. But it cannot be done in
this age and country, and the very
attempt recoils with damaging effect
upon those who make it.
ing for the Interment ceremonies, I
have to pay three dollars. Rather
steep. Even if tho return bo after
tho ccromonics, it is still rather
stoop. Besides, to mnke nn invaria
ble chargo whether tho timo occu
pied be one hour or two, works in
justice to somebody. If three dollars
be sufficient payment for two hours'
service, the man who is required to
fork out the same sum for one hour
is overcharged. I would like to
know if this is a rule of tho govern
ment, and if so, by what rule of
equity is it constructed?
Seeing that it has become the
custom to publish "calls," I owe a
duty to thu public in this line. The
undertaking is one from which in
born modesty makes me shrink, but
a deep sense of duty to tho dear
people whom I serve overcomes the
weaker feeling. The nation should
know, in fact must know, how so
important a personage as myself
makes up a day's outing. Well, at
7:0.") yesterday morning 1 took pas
sage in a tramcar, first class, five
cents, to save expense. Called on
Willing, at the Government nurs
ery, and leceived from his own lips
an account of an encounter with
bulls on Kauai. Next paid a visit
to the distinguished Jim Sherwood, at
the Waikiki baths. Was well ic-
ceived. Jim has become quite
sedate, but his heart retains its old
size. Spent a profitable hour at the
Honolulu Planing Mills, regaled by
the wisdom of Peter Dalion and
others. Would have remained
longer, but an intimation more forci
ble than polite fliatthe space I occu
pied was preferable to my person
induced me to move on. Met
Ornilhorhyiicbuiat the corner. He
raised his hat, and muttered some
thing about "that bill." I found
it convenient to be in a hurry. Sea
born was found in his usual smiling
condition, but startled me somewhat
by the assertion that he found it
necessary to be cautious in giving
credit. That as no atmosphere for
me. Paid my respects to the boot
black in Cunha's lane. Found an
open chair awaiting me, and forth
with dumped my piccious body into
it. "Cash in advance from you,"
uttered bv the polite bootblack,
caused me to vacate and proceed.
I then conceived the intention of
winding up the day's calls by a visit
to the celebrated and world-famed
Cunha, at the Union. The inten
tion was carried out. At a lespect
able hour, about three o'clock next
morning, I reached my tent in a
state wheelbarrow that is a wheel
barrow owned by the government
navigated by the skilful and famous
corn doctor who with rare ingenu
ity escaped the clutches of the vag
rant Act a short time ago.
R. M. S. MARIPOSA.
HER CARGO TAKING HUE SHE TUTS
BACK TO AUCKLAND.
The Mariposa sailed from Auck
land April 22d. A dispatch from
tho latter place received at San
Prancisco Apiil 25th, says, that tho
Mariposa had returned to Auckland
on fire. From dispatches received
from Captain II ay ward, it appears
that a day out from Auckland, whin
the vessel was about 220 miles at
sea, smoke was discovered coming
from tho forcbold hatchways. An
investigation was made and the seat
of the lire placed in the lower hold,
where about 680 tons ot llax were
stored. Thi" flax is shipped in bales,
and is a Very combustible article.
How the Hie started is not known,
but it is supposed that the hold be
ing dry, gases were accumulated,
the liutchwuys being battened down,
and the llax took Are by sponta
neous combustion. All the air pas
sages into the hold were stopped up
and an effort made to smother the
fit c. This was not successful, and
streams of water wcic poured upon
the mass. Captain Hayward in tho
mean lime, bad turned the ste.imer
about and was making for Auck
land nt a speed of thirteen knots an
hour. The fire did not gain any
apparent headway ,and consequently
it was hoped that no damage would
be done to the ship until port was
At this time of the year there is a
very heavy travel from the colonies,
nnd the Marinosa had about lfiO
passengers on board. As is gener
ally the case, a fire on shipboaid
causes more or less panic among
the passengers, and in this case
there was great excitement. The
fire was discovered about noon, and
but for the coolness of the steamer's
otliccra there might have been some
foolish deeds done by the excited
passengers. As it was. the passeu
iieis took Captain Hay w aid's advice
to remain on board until there was
really some danger.
Auckland was reached at four
o'clock on the morning of the 21th,
after a run of sixteen hours nt an
average speed ol thirteen and thtee
quarter knots per hour. The lire
was quickly subdued and the llax
all discharged. The remaining
freight amounted to 100 tons. It
was found that little or no damage
had been clone to the vessel, and she
sailed aain at 8 o'clock in the eve
ning. This puis the steamer two
days behind time, but she is able to
regain at least a day of the time lost
and is expected to reach this port

Somebody defended "trusts" in
the "Advertiser" lately, and at
tempted to show how good they are.
I at once thought of the oil trust,
and remembered that before the
days of the trust I got oil cheap,
and now I am compelled to use trust
oil which costs me a considerably
higher price. No doubt, the trust
is good for those who arc in it, but
it is no good for thoso who arc out
of it, and tho great majority of peo
ple aro out of it. The oil trust, I
suppose, gives big profits to tho few
who are in it, and dear oil to the
many who are out of it. Tons of
'fact, figures and reasoning," to
show me that black is white, do
not convince mo that black is any
thing but black, or that white is
otherwise than white. It may bo
owing'to tho thickness of my skull,
lmt I can't help it.
The old and ridiculous method of
bestowing bouquets upon perform
ers is still kept up at the Hawaiian
Opera House. A boy is sent trot
ting down the passageway to the
stage from the ticket oillce at the
entrance of the hall, with a great
bunch of flowers. He invariably
arrives cither too late or loo soon,
usually the latter, and then perches
himself in a waiting attitude on the
stage, to the annoyance of the audi
ence and the discomfiture of the
performer, until the time for pre
sentation with more or less grace or
awkwardness arrives. The first lime
I saw thib ciicus I was amused, be
cause it struck me as intensely ludi
crous. But tho novelty has worn
off, and I felt like kicking whoever
was tho means of marring the pleas
ure of Thursday night's concert by
adding thu side show to the regular
programme. Ladies who sing or
play for the entertainment of the
public appreciate applause and
llowers when the applause is en
thusiastic and the llowers are dashed
ou the stage as the spontaneous of
fering of excited admiration; but
they are not in favor of the custom
above outlined, and no wonder.

regulated by the Minister of Inte

for twenty-fivo cents, certain others
for fifty cents, and so on. If you
hire a hack by tho hour a maximum
of charges is prescribed. When
you go to a funeral in u hack the

regulation too, or is the price fixed

David A. MoKinley, his Hawaiian
Majesty's Uonsul-General at San
Francisco, said to a reporter yester
day relative to a dispatch from
Washington to the effect that he
had forfeited his American citizen

American citizen, there being no
law in the Hawaiian Kingdon to dis
qualify me on that account.
"I was not asked to take any
oath of allegiance, nor to give any
bonds, nor to subscribe my name to
