THE HAWAIIAN TRAMWAYS.
The "Financial 'News," a London
dally journal, devotes an article to
"uie,. Hawaiian. Tramways," from
"Ijhtch something new and of interest
to ourselves may be learnt. The
official returns for the first six
ireeks of the cars' running, begin
ning with the first day of the pre
sent year, are given. The receipts
from fares during that period rose
from thirty dollars to one hundred
dollars per day. The passengers
for the first week numbered, 3,lCa,
and the receipts amounted lp f$lo8.
There was a steady increase during
the following five week's tho last of
which shows 9,9G2 passengers'! and
8607. On the basis of these figures
the "Financial, News" estimates
that the completed system twelve
miles of track will return over six
per cent per annum to the share
holders. To show the popularity of
the tramcars the local press is
and J'ParlUc. of the Pacific." The
last named pnpc Ueferred to as a
journal "which 'has taken to itself a
Tlio't'ramcars lijtvc now been run
nidgt.over four months, and had the
"Financial News" the figures of the
last six weeks of that period instead
of those of the first sis weeks, wo
have no doubt the showing would
have been still more favorable ; for
the inciease of traffic, and conse
quentU' of receipts, has continued
from the commencement to the pie
sent time. Although double cars
are now run Saturday and Sunday
afternoons and evenings, they are
crammed to their utmost capacity,
and sometimes it is impossible to
find room to stand on or a place to
Some people predicted that the
beginning was too good to last, and
that when the novelty wore off the
cars would not be so much used.
They who prophesied thus were
neither prophets nor sons of pro
phets, as experience has shown. No
novelty lasts four months in Hono
lulu. The tramcars have long ceased
to be a novelty : they are felt to be
a necessity which cannot now be dis
pensed with. Many business peo
ple 'residing along the route of tra
vel use them regularly in preference
to their piivate carriages, and many
others in various lines of avocation
who "formerly came to town in the
morning and remained there till the
close of the day's duties in the
evening, now go to their residences
to lunch during the noou hour and
return. The cars have thus created
travel. And not only has travel"
been created in this way' but also
- in others, particularly among mo
thers with families, who avail them
selves of an eas', safe and cheap
ride to "tyaikiki, to spend an hour
on the sands and in the sea water.
This kind of travel increases daily,
and is likely to continue increasing
as the summer heat intensifies.
Scores of poor families, who, before
the advent of the tramways, never
daied to dream of the luxury of a
sea bath at Waikiki, have now that
luxury brought within tho reaoh of
their means, and they avail them
selves of it. Wc would hero empha
size tho fact, that, according to our
observation, the surprising travel
for our little town by 'the tramcars
is oily to a small extent travel di
verted from previously existing pub
liu means of transit, such as public
expresses, but is mainly travel that
was formerly by private convey
ance and, above all, created travel.
In conclusion wc would repeat the
regret that tho tramway was not
undertaken by our own peoplo, to
whom the opportunity of doing bo
was presented. There is abundance
of capital in this country uninvest
ed and a portion of it might have
been piofitably employed in supply
ing Honolulu with tho convenience
of streetcars. But our capital was
too shy, and the charter had to go
abroad begging for foreign money.
Our capitalists have nobody to
blame but themselves. If they did
not embrace the opportunity Hio
fault was theits. At the same time
we would say, all honor to those
foreigners who had tho foresight and
pluck to put their money into the
Mchcme. By so doing they have
conferred upon our people a boon,
and in return they reap a reward in
tho shape of good interest on their
invested capital. They merit public
gratitude, and we wish them all success.
OUR LONDON LETTER.
The ecclesiastical court now bo
ing held before the Archbishop of
Canterbury, for tho trial of the
Bishop of Lincoln fer alleged viola
tion of tho canons of tho Church, i6
still considerably agitated over tho
question of the legality of the court.
Quite a bomb was thrown into the
ranks of the Teetotallers by no less
a personage than Mr. Justice Gran
tham. During the Glamorganshire
Assizes, the Justice in touching up
on the drink traffic, expressed sur
prise that after two hundred years
of legislation on the subject, no so
lution had been arrived at. In in
structing the Grand Jury, he took
the occasion to pay, that the drink
question can never bo settled by a
pollc- of extremes. It is tho al
most unanimous conclusion of states
men, magistrates, and other pcr
sotiiPinoat competent to judge, that
public opinion must bo the great
lcgulating force in tins matter, and
not legislative enactments. It is
"far hotter to control drinking by
s wise measures than to attempt its
suppression. If repressive legisla
tion could bo carried, it would be
immediately followed by a strong
agitation for its repeal. Moral
force, example, and persuasion arc
more potent reforming agents than
penal statutes, against which the
sense of the. people rebels; and the
only settlement of the liquor ques
tion that has a chance of becoming
permanent is one based upon these
lines. "Force," as Mr. Bright said
in relation to another question, is
certainly "no remedy" for moderate
drinking; aud the present contto
vcrsy can never be set at rest ex
cept by those temperate measures
which do not brand moderate dunk
ing as a crime.
These are good, solid nuggets of
wisdom for the rabid prohibitionist
to consider. Coming as it docs
from so distinguished and capable a
source it will cairy considerable
weight, in the efforts to do away
with the now prevailing insano de
mands, of those who set themselves
up as apostles of temperance.
Reports concerning the proposed
coal syndicate, with a capital of
100,000,000., go to show that the
pioject is not regarded with any
great amount of enthusiasm. The
subject has been privately before
the coalowners ior some time past,
and lias been inquired into and re
ported upon ; but it is regarded as
extremely unlikely that the scheme
as shadowed out can ever come into
practical operation. Sometime since
a certain number of the South York
shire colliery proprietors gave a
kind of qualified assent to the pro
posal on the condition that the in
terests of coalowneis, lessees, aud
workmen were all provided for in
the bchume, which lias been done,
and any plan which would result in
a greater economy of management,
and an improvement in the market
price, would be gladly acquiesced
in; but these proprietors seemed
now convinced of the impracticabil
ity of the scheme, and it was pro
nounced on Wednesday by a quali
fied authority to be "as dead as a
doornail." And thus ends another
of those gigantic combinations or
trusts, who, under the cloak of cor
porate legal authority, seek to do
that which sound governmental pol
There was quite a little breeze
raised m the House of Commons on
Thursday last, over the question of
the voting of 3,000,000 on account
of the civil service. The "low" be
gan with a speech by Mr.J. Morley,
who in rather violent harangue, sad
dled upon the govemmeut the re
sponsibility of the "Times" case in
the Parncll commission. On the
subsiding of the noise occasioned by
this, Mr. Aithur Balfour, continued
the debate, and after stating that
Houston was the accomplice of l'i
gott, the "Times" was the accom
plice of Houston, and the govern
ment the accomplices of the Times,
said: A more shocking, a more
scandalous, and a more unfounded
libel was never uttered ; and that by
persons who were engaged at the very
moment in protesting that no crime
was so shocking as that of libelling
your political opponents. Why,
those gentlemen revelled in lilicl.
Libel was their daily bread. That
Sir W. Hai court could not go to a
public meeting without making tlieso
chaigcs, and, for not even tho mean
est of which was there a shadow of
proof It would havo been more in
accordance with courtesy and usage
if members had refrained from mak
ing these comments upon the pio
cedurc of the Commission while the
Commission was silting, and he
could only attribute their action to
a desire to discredit the evidence of
the witnesses whose ovidence they
were unable to shake in a court of
law, or whose ovidence thuy did not
at least attempt to shake.
On the conclusion of Mr. Bal
four's remarks, Sir J. Gorst con
tended that tlieso remarks wore
made only for the purpose of creat
ing political capital, and throwing
dirt upon tho government, and their
authois were reckless whether they
interfered with the course of jus
tico or not.
It has been for some time rumor
ed that .Mr. Froudo had declared
himself to bo in favor of Homo Uulo
for Ireland. In contradicting this
report Mr. Fioudc, after stating
that ins opinion on great political
questions would not be of sufficient
importance for (lie notice of news
paper), concluded by baying: Jlimo
liulo will be tho first aud probably
irrevocable step towards tho separa
tion of the ifalands ; it will increase
tho wretchedness., of Ireland, and
will be followed nt no distant period
by tho break tip of tho British Um
pire." Fortunately for the future
of Ireland, and the scheme of those
who aro so untiringly working for
her emancipation, Mr. Froude's re
marks will not carry sufficient
weight to do any very serious dam
age to the cause. Political alarm
ists to a ccitaiu extent can work ir
remediable injury to a great politi
cal movement, but the opinions of a
literary scclusc, and especially one
who is'bo nearly appreciated to that
period when men "babble o' green
fields," will cause no other ripple
than a smile, or a pitying nod of the
