MONDAY, JUNE 3, 1889.
Lord Lonsdale's marvellous sto
ries of his Arctic expedition, which
on his sudden turning up in San
Francisco produced a widespread
sensation, are disbelieved by many
of the American and Canadian
A memorial to the late Father
Damicn has been suggested in Lon
don. The erection of a substantial
hospital on Molokai and endowment
of a faculty of specialists to treat
and study the disease would be u
glorious and most humane means of
effectuating the idea.
A Sydney telegram says
body of a man has been found in a
solid block of marble at a quarry
near Orange. It is nearly perfect,
but the head shows unmistakable
signs of being scalped before death."
Perhaps, however, the subject was
a bald-headed editor, who willed his
wig to his heirs.
The atoll of Suwarrow, lately an
nexed to the British Crown, is im
portant chiefly in having the only
good port between Tahiti and Sa
moa, far superior in fact to that of
Apia. It was acquired probably as
a point of strategic importance, be
ing the only British possession be
tween Fiji and the Canadian coast
on the line of the proposed cable.
The London .Standard on May
14th said that Germany would not
sell her estates to Samoa, nor yet
would she refrain from chastising
Mataafa. It is probable that the
question of a chief ruler will be set
tled by an agreement upon the or
iginal Malietoa. But the land ques
tion, at last advices still unsettled
despite the rose-colored reports of
harmony, was liable to be a danger
ous rock in the path of the confer
ence. There are more land claims
than there is land in Samoa.
The German warship Wolf, men
tioned in some Japan items the other
day as having been ordered from
Java to Samoa, has arrived at Bris
bane en route for that destination.
The Sophie has reached Melbourne
bound for the same spot. Germany
having hitherto had three vessels on
the South Pacific Station, there is
no especial significance in these ar
rivals. In accordance with the
agreement between the three Powers,
only one of these vessels will prob
ably go to Apia pending the result
of the conference in Berlin.
Disease among sugar cane in
Java, which strikes at tho rcots of
the plants, has spread so alarmingly
that the Government ef the island
has taken measures against it.
Plant cane from the stricken dis
tricts is shut out from the unaffect
ed or.eB, and its export from that
island to lands beyond sea has also
been forbidden. Heavy penalties
are attached to breaches of the pro
hibition. The foresight, not to say
the magnanimity, of the Javanese
authorities in prohibiting exporta
tion of possibly affected plant cane
should bo appreciated in other su
No official report had been made
when the Zealandia left Auckland,
but according to the Herald the
theory df spontaneous combustion
regarding the fire in the Mariposa
had beenfdiscarded. It was believ
ed that a spark dropped by a smoker
engaged in loading the flax caused
the fire and that it was smouldering
before the steamer left the harbor.
Very strange it is that smoking
should have been allowed among
handlers of such inflammable mate
rial, but the Herald says smoking
was going on even when the flux was
dumped ashore for examination, un

It is suggested in London that a
conference of experts with regard to
the disease of leprosy should be
held in Ktiropo. Tho movement can
be in nowise premature, as leprosy
is appearing at a great many points
in the world. Hawaii is not nlone
even iu the raciflc in respect to the
magnitude of its infliction. New
Caledonia, with an aboriginal popu
lation of 25,000, contains no fewer
than 4,000 lepers. The disease
has obtained a foothold in the Chi
nese settlements of Australia, and
the Government of Queensland is
considering the matter of establish
ing a leper settlement on some out
lyiug island. In case the project of
a conference be carried out, the Ha
waiian Government can assist, not
only by furnishing a vast deal of
information, but by recommending
as members a number of doctors
who have studied the disease on the
it is telegraphed from London
that the Canadian-Australian mail J
service is contingent upon Sir John
Macdonald arranging with England
for a faster Atlantic service. There
seems to be an uncertainty of such a
line touching Honolulu. Mr. R. J.
Creighton, envoy of the Oceanic
Company, has failed to secure
pledges of support from the Colonial
Governments to that company's
scheme of a fortnightly service from
San Francisco. The P. & O. S.
Co. is reported to be about starting
a lino of steamers between San
Diego, Cal., and Yokohama, tvhich
may call at Honolulu. The forego
ing items comprise the latest news
regarding future mail communica
tions in which we are iuteiested.
With all the discouraging features
it need hardly be feared that Hono
lulu will ever be left long without
mail communications both north and
south. Pacific Ocean commerce is
not narrowing but widening in' its
grasp, and the probability is that
we shall have increased rather than
diminished communications by steam
in all directions.
CHINA AND THE COLONIES.
"The direct imports from China
into Australian and New Zealand
ports have increased from about half
a million stetling in 1881 to three
quarters of a million in 1888."
Commenting on this epitome of the
trade relations between the two
countries, the Auckland Star says
"it is downright impudence for the
Chinese to make a grievance of the
measures adopted in the Colonies to
prevent a Mongolian invasion."
The paper proceeds to cite on the
one hand the exclusion of foreigners
in China from any but thefifteen
treaty ports, "forced open at the
mouth of the cannon," and on the
other hand the "almost indescriba
ble moral pollution which seems to
be inseparable from the aggregation
of Chinese in European cities," and
against which "whether by right or
by might, the colonists will," it is
confident, "strenuously refuse to
remove the barriers which they
have raised to protect themselves."
It is all very well to talk about be
ing "just" to the Chinese as the
pro-Chinese advocates of this king
dom have spent much energy in do
ing, but the Auckland paper is on
the right track in insisting upon a
policy the salient principle of which
is that a country must first of all be
just to itself.
BOLTING VS. PASSPORTS.
Editok Bulletin: Some time
since there was considerable talk
about granting passports, and the
great evil thereof. There will be no
need for our Legislature to amend
the law, when it is getting to be
quite popular just to pay your fare
up to Kahului, Maui, and take pas
sage in some of the sailing vessels
that leave that port (or the port of
Ililo) for the Coast, thus doing
away entirely with the necessity of
paying any debts that you may owe
Why the law should be annulled
I for one cannot see, as it is the
only protection that our merchants,
tradesmen, etc., have to compel the
dishonest to pay up (if they hayc
anything), and as we are blessed by
receiving the "riff-ruff" of Cali
fornia, who come down here for
their health (poor dears), and after
staying two or three months at the
Hotel say-r-using carriages galore,
and generally running in debt all
round conclude to get up and get,
and what can you do about it?
How easy it is, "don't you know,"
to take a trip to see tho Volcano,
say in tho W. G. Hall that'leaves at
10 a. m,, quietly conclude to stop
at Maalaea Buy, laud theie, take
express and rail to Kahului, and

how to leave people m the lurch,

Editok Bullutin : Please per
mit this digrestion from the further
answer of Mr. J. F. Smith's first
letter on Biblo intemperance, while
1 say a few words on Bide issues.
You had better order up that
"pension" for the great 1889 dis
covery of that plain fact, "that alco
holic wine caused the lust urunic,
the first drunk originated negro
slavery" (Biblo proof) ; "the quar
rel over negro slavery brought on
the American civil war" (historical
fact). Hence it seems good logical
reasoning, iu view of the above facts,
to say, that "drink indirectly caus
ed the war." Certainly n cause is
responsible for all its effects dis
prove it who can.
Homer is "Antishamus" so far
as "knighthood" or "canonization"
is concerned ; but he may stand in
need of the "pension" to buy pa
per if he is expected to answer all
the questions propounded to him by
the Bl-i.i,i:tin's correspondents, and
defend himself against their person
al attacks. Their questions are
short, but the answers are longer
and more difficult. "A child can
ask questions that may puzzle wise
men to answer." And if the an
swers develop new ideas, it shows
that the woild moves, which it would
not do if there were no original
thoughts. My opponents should
take things more calmly and not fly
into a passion and call hard names
when new ideas from an unexpected
quarter upsets their fine spun theo
ries. However, mj- opponents charge
that 1 don't say anything. Why,
then, are they vexed? Surely my
words don't hurt if there is nothing
in them. So it must be from their
weak cause which they are trying
to maintain before the bar of public
opinion, and the unpalatable and
unanswerable truths that we pre
sent against it makes them irritable,
and, seeing no way to defend their
case, they pitch into me. This is
quite encouraging, as it shows
clearly that they truly have a bad
case, and they must have
attended the school of that as
tute attorney, who being asked by
his pupils, "What shall we do if we
have a bad case?" His prompt an
swer was, "Never mention it, but
pitch into the opposite attorney,
pitch into the witnesses, and if that
don't do, pitch into the Judge, but
never refer to your case." This
seems to have been the studied
course pursued by mv opponents,
with I believe the exception of
"Truth," who tried to prove my
statistics faulty, but he won't write
it again if we are ever permitted to
criticise his proof and produce our
Again, we are charged with "say
ing the same things over and over
again." I think if "Antishamus"
will reflect a little, he will remember
that Mr. G.'s questions related to
the social, moral and financial phase
of the temperance question, and we
answered according to the tenor of
all his questions. If I did repeat,
it was because the samo proof an
swered to force home the arguments
on two or more questions. He will
also remember that Mr. J. F. Smith
staits off on what he calls the "re
ligious arguments" of the temper
ance question, and he quotes liber
ally from the Bible to prove his in
temperance doctrines, and it is with
these we are now dealing and will
have no need of repeating former
arguments, as there is an abundance
of material to form an argument

A LARGE SHIP WRECKED.
The four-masted steel ship Alt
more, 1710 tons, owned in Glasgow,
commanded by Capt. V. G. Weeks,
was wrecked at Fiji, April 22d, on
voyage from .Sydney to San Fran
cisco with coal. When the captain
sent a boat's crew ashore nt Viwn to
look for a landing, there being sev
eral passengers including a lady
and four children on board, the na
tives approached the 6ailors threat
ening' with spears and the attempt
to laud was abandoned. Tho sec
ond mate, with tho passengers and
six of the crew, then left in the
ship's lifeboat and cutter, intending
to make for Suva, which was over
100 miles distant. As they had not
reached that port up to the time of
the steamer Mawhera's sailing for
Auckland, it is probable that they
have been drowned, though they
may have landed ou some of the
smaller islands of the group. The
captain and remainder of the crew
were preparing to follow in another
boat, when they were rescued by
the schooner Midge all except
