SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1889.
Some good people have within re
cent years deplored not, it may be
admitted, without cause the laps
ing of this community from the high
plane of intelligence and culture ac
corded it pretty freely by literary
visitors from abroad. It has often
been heard stated that no "sensi
ble" movement for the elevation of
the average standard of intelligence
has any chance for attaining longev
ity in Honolulu. Even at a time
when this might have been the most
strictly just judgment, however,
there was assuredly a respectable
"remnant" of brains which largely
redeemed the community from the
condemnation due to dunces and
J'dunderheads." In that period we
And the Honolulu Library and Head
ing Room Association erecting a
building that, taking respective
numbers of inhabitants into consi
deration, compares favorably with
the public library of the city of
Boston, the "hub" of culture, if
not of the universe as has been fa
cetiously claimed for it by its citi
zens. Within the same period Ex
celsior Lodge of Odd Fellows is
found maintaining a very respect
able library, containing, it is said, the
best assortment of bound volumes
of early Honolulu newspapers ex
tant. Through the dull intellectual
regime alleged we also find a Social
Science Association even if a closer
corporation than the tenets of the
Republic of Letters may be suppos
ed to harmonize with undoubtedly a
source of culture and a disseminator
of useful knowledge. The Y. M. C.
A. had in those years established
and kept eflicient a reading room,
where the best and freshest
periodical literature of America
and England was always to
be found, and where were
to be seen, day and night, availing
themselves of the privileges thus
presented, old and young men of
those classes whom it is an object of
that institution to reach. Occasion
ally, even, numbers of studious
brows might be seen knit over the
valuable fund of literature contain
ed in the Government Library in
Aliiolani Hale. Numbers of organ
izations might be named, connected
with the various churches, whose
aim is for the elevation of the intel
lectual and moral status of their
membership, which held their way
bravely through the same years. All
this docs not look like a famine or
even a scarcity of intelligence in the
land. Still, ns said before, it
must be admitted that there has long
been ground for more or less con
cern over the indifference of a large
proportion of our people toward
everything except the acquisition of
the dollar and the having of what is
called "a good time," geneially in
truth meaning u rather bad time.
Intermingled with this too frivolous,
if not to be styled vicious, class arc
those whose highest intellectual cul
tivation is fostered by current fiction
the more perniciously exciting
and grossly unnatural, or too na
tural as to nutriment lor the brutal
elements of humanity, the more ac
ceptable to their spoiled mental
Of late, it really seems as if the
intellectually inclined remnant was
increasing, whether as the crop from
tha seed scattered by the agencies
previously enumerated, or as u re
sult of people tiring of idleness of
mind, becoming jaded with things
that arc unsatisfying to their best
natures, or being influenced by
spontaneous impulses and the trans
fusion of exotic blood into the veins
made sluggish by tropical conditions
acting upon dispositions bred in
harsher climes. At all events, a
revival of the things that are promo
tive of culture may with gratifica
tion, at the present moment, be
noted. Some of the organizations
hitherto mentioned have been dis
playing renewed vigor in catering to
the mental ltunger of the crowd.
Their efforts in this way, it is pleas
ing to observe, have not been un
rewarded with a goodly measure of
popular response. "Practical talks"
by talented citizens in the rooms of
the Y. M. C. A. have crowded the
place almost beyond its capacity.
The same society has deemed it
iW.orHi while to start, in addition to
.classes or night tuition in useful
JjrancUps pf .education, a class in
English literature. For now going
on two years the Honolulu Literary
and Debating Society lights up a
large hnll once a week, and none of
its regular attendants but acknow
ledges having received great bene
fit from its discussions, not mctely
of sentimental conundrums, but, of
living questions of the day affecting
this country in particular and civil
ization in general. Latterly we have
the Hawaiian Camera Club an
organization of amateur photo
graphersspringing into instantan
eous prosperity, and it is an institu
tion rcnuiriiiix of its members who
would keep up with Its work, not
only a high degree of technical
skill, but a general knowledge of
chemistry and other sciences, which
will greatly broaden their mental
capacity. Anything that docs so
will make a man's life more enjoy
able and his existence one of en
hanced usefulness to his kind atid
his generation. Space would fail to
do more than name the existing
Chautauqua Circle with its system
atic curricula of culture, the Mount
Ilolyokc Alumnm Association with
its refined associations and ambi
tious, and other kindred organiza
tions. Besides all these factors of
the claimed renaissance, there is the
greatly developed local press, con
stantly carrying into hundreds of
homes new ideas and representations
of the world in its diurnal reality,
as well as affording great and con
venient scope for tho free inter
change of the people's ideas in their
own way, which is in itself one of
the very best sorts of jtucntal exer
cise and means of acquiring literary
creative power and comprehension.

OF HAWAIIAN SUPREME
WW1UUXTT OP GOODS.
The law of sales implies a war
ranty that the article purchased is
merchantable, that is, that it pos
sesses some value, that it is fit for
some purpose, and can be sold at
Secondly, the law implies a war
ranty that the article is reasonably
fit for the use for which it is known
to be intended.
The law implies a warrant' that
goods are mei charitable in all cases
where, from their nature or situa
atiou at the time of sale, an examin

But where the buyer can examine
the goods if he choose, and especi
ally where he does so, he must take
the consequences, if through care
lessness or negligence, he omit to
make a thorough examination.
The law will not protect the buyer
in such cases, where the seller has
not undertaken to furnish an article
of a particular kind or quality, and
has done nothing to mislead the
The law makes a distinction be
tween the sale of provisions in small
quantities for domestic use and con
sumption, and the sale of laigo
quantities of provisions as merchan
dise for exportation. For example
if a man Bbould step into a store and
order a barrel of Hour to be sent to
his house, for family use, there
would bo an implied warranty that
it was sweet and wholesome.
When the contract has been exe
cuted, and the goods paid for, the
vendee has no right, in the absence
of fraud, to return them upon their
failure to correspond to the warran
ty, but must sue upon the warran
ty, and he can recover the difference
between the price paid and the
actual worth of the goods. Ilcgarty

complain of the goods, and will af

A NEW OCEAN RACER.
The Pacific Mail Steamship Com
pany will soon receive from Glas
gow, Scotland, their magnificent
new steamer Pacific, which they
found it cheaper to build abroad
than in an American shipyard.
Captain Seabury will sail for
New York on the Guion steamer
Alaska on the lGth to take posses
sion of the new vessel, lie will
have to hoist the British flag on hor,
for by our laws she cannot fly the
Stars and Stripes, having been con
structed on the Clyde.
A foreign steamer in an American
steamship line, which has loudly
cried for subsidies for ycais back,
is something of an anomaly. "It is
liko a duck among a brood of chic
kens," remaiked an old skipper at
the Maritime Exchange yesterday.
Secretary Lane of the Pacific Mail
Steamship Company was found at
his breezy quarters at the foot of
Canal street yesterday, and was
asked for details about the new
craft. "How much less does the Pacific
cost built in Glasgow than if she
had been built here?" I asked.
"I can give you no data as to the
cost, but our new boat will be a
beaut'," was the reply. "She will
ply between San Francisco and
China and Japan. She will be
plated next month and launched a
few weeks afterwards."
She is built by the Fairfield Ship
Building and Engineering Company
of Glasgow, and is 5,000 tons gross
register, 15G feet long, 48 feet wide
and 3G feet deep. The steamer i3
built of steel throughout, has a
double bottom divided into twenty
four water-tiht compartments ar
ranged to hold water ballast, and is
supplied with ballast tank pumps
capable of discharging 325 tons per
The hull is equally divided into
ten water-tight compartments. The
vessel is of the turtle back spar deck
class, with three decks, main or lop
and promenade. The main deck is
of steel. She is fitted with the most
approved steam and fire-heating ap
paratus, steam windlass, capstan,
etc. rNcw York Herald.
WHY HE DID
NOT CO TO THE HOSPI
TAL. in: could i.uai' tiikougii the aiu.
Y object in writing is two-fold
to express my gratitude for a
great benefit, and to tell a short story
which cannot fail to interest the
feelings of many others. It is all
about myself, but I liavo remaiked
that when a man tells the honest
truth about himself he is all the
more likely to be of use to his fol-low-creaturcs.
To begin, then, you
must know I had long been more or
less subject to attacks of bronchitis,
a complaint that you arc aware is
very common and troublesome in
Great Britain in certain seasons of
the year. Some months ago I had
a very severe turn of it, worse, I
think, than I ever had before. It
was probably brought on by my
culcliing cold, as we are all apt to
do when wo least expect it. Weeks
passed by, aud my trouble proved
to bo very obstinate. It would not
yield to medicine, and as I also be
gan to have violent racking pains in
iny limbs and back, 1 became great
ly alarmed. I could neither eat nor
sleep. If I had been a feeble, sick
ly man, I should have thought less
strangely of it; but as, on tho con
trary, I was hearty and robust, I
feared some now and terrible thing
had got hold of mo, which might
makeniy strength of no avail against
it. I say, that was t)io way I
Presently I could not even lie
down for the pain all over my body,
I asked my doctor what he thought
of my condition, and he frankly,
"I am sorry to liavo lo tell you that
you aro getting worse I" This ao
frightened my frlonds, as well nB
myself, that they said "Thomas,
you mast go to the Hospital', it
may ha your only chance for life!"
But I didn't want to go to tho
hospital. Who does, when ho
thinks ho can possibly get along
without doing it? 1 am n labouilng
man, with a largo family depending
on mo for support, and I might al
most as well bo in nry grave as to
bo laid on my back in a hospital
unable to lift a hand for months,
or God only knows how long. Right
at tins point 1 hnd a thought flash
across my mind liko a streak of sun
shine in a cloudy day. I hail heard
and read a good deal about Mother
Seigcl's Curative Syrup, and 1 re
solved, before consenting to be
taken to the hospital, I would try
that wellknown remedy. On this I
gave up tho doctor's medicine and
began taking the Syrup. Mark the
wonderful result 1 1 had taken but
three doses within twenty-four hours
when I was seized with a fit of
coughing, and threw up the phlegm
and mucus off my chest by the
mouthful. The Syrup has loosened
and broken it up. Continuing with
the Syrup, the racking pain, which
I believe came from the bitter and
poison humors in my blood and
joints, soon left mo entirely, and I
felt like going to sleep, and I did
sleep sound and quiet. Then I felt
hungry, with a natural appetite, and
as I ate I soon cot strong and well.
J felt I could hap through the
air itiilh delight!
In a week 1 was able to go to my
work again. It doesn't seem possi
ble, yet it is true, and the neigh
bours know it. There are plenty
of witnesses to prove it. And,
therefore, when I say I preach the
good news of the great power of
Seigcl's Syrup to cuie pain and di
sease far and wide, nobody will
wonder at me.
