THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 1889.
An interesting article from the
London Railway Press appears else
where. The term "native" in places
is liable to mislead readers abroad :
"local" would have been more pre
cise. "Never say die," would seem to
bo the motto of De Lesseps' backers
in the Panama Canal. They are
sending out a commission, accord
ing to the latest news, to investigate
the status of the ditch with a view
to resumption of operations.
Complaint is heard that some
public school teachers close their
schools without leave at 11 o'clock
on the days of steamer departures
for San Francisco. Apait from the
matter of time lost, such action is
not a good example to the pupils.
The Bulletin never complimented
the Advertiser on being a purist
posing as such was the soft impeach
ment, and to this our contemporary
pleads guilty. It is a generally
accepted truism that attitudinizing
is a characteristic mark of the
It is suggested to us that a very
good variation from the customary
celebration of the Fourth of July
would be by means of a regatta.
With the recent accessions to the
yacht fleet there ought to be the
finest sailing races ever had here.
The rowing fraternity has a number
of well-trained crews, that would
doubtless be supplemented by the
British warship Espiegle. The
King's birthday regattas have been
comparative failures the past few
years, owing in great part to in
clement weather prevailing on the
day. If the aquatic knights agree
to have a regatta on the Fourth,
there is no doubt they can make one
to be remembered.
The Bulletin's proposition to the
Advertiser waB not a bet. Our
statement contradicted by the latter
paper is backed by evidence that
would be acceptable in a court of
law. The Advertiser's contradiction
was only instigated by a contempti
ble deBire to discredit a contem
porary. In declining to make good
its contradiction or else withdraw it,
rthc Advertiser proves itself to be
destitute of honorable principle. If
the five dollars is a stumblingbjock
to its immaculate cloth, then we un
dertake to stake an humble apology
on the issue instead. This gives the
Advertiser one more chance to show
that it is controlled by gentlemen.
The Advertiser ought at least to
lie mouest, in view of its "bad
break" regarding the Wandering
Minstrel. When its own flies con
tained the whole story, including
the Marine Court's complete exon
eration of Capt. Walker, tho second
hand attack on that gentleman is
difficult of excuse. Capt. Walker
is himself within an hour's ride of
Honolulu and it would have been
only decent to have asked him for
his side of the story. Instead,
however, of humbly apologizing to
Capt. Walker, our contemporary
adds insult to injury by lauding the
mate, Cameron, whom the former
denounced as having proved trait
orous to him, taking side with the
outlaw Jorgensen, on the desert island.
Mr. John E. Bush has a bombas
tic letter in tho Advertiser, attack
ing tho Bulletin for cortnin re
marks by "Galileo" upon the writ
er's new native paper. Whilo as to
the political phase of the oontiov-
ersy Mr. BuBh may bo left to our
special Saturday contributor, his
implied accusation of want of journ
alistic courtesy against this paper
calls for a word. Tho Bulletin
was ahead of the paper praised by
Mr. Bush in that regard, both in
point of time nnd in cordiality, in
extending a welcome to K& Oiaio.
That fact, however, did not imply
immunity at our hands for the new
comer in the arena, provided its
course was afterwards deemed ob
jectionable. Mr. Bush is simply
pleading the baby act and evincing
luxuriant freshness in the newspaper
business by his exhibition of grondi
oso irritability in the columns of a
WAS THERE BLAME?
The San Francisco Call devotes
two columns to an investigation of
Admiral Kimberly's conduct in
keeping the squadron in Apia har
bor in the face of unmistakable pre
monitions of the hurricane. Inter
views with returned naval officers
and experienced mariners arc given,
which support tho theor' that the
American Admiral would have taken
his ships to sea but that he felt it
to be his duty to remain in the har
bor as long as the Germans would.
It is stated as a fact that Admiral
Kimberiy signalled to the Captain
of the Olga that his ground tackle
would not hold in a hurricane, only
to receive the reply, in effect, that
he might leave but the German war
ships should remain. This was
twenty-four hours before the hurri
cane and it is assumed that the Ad
miral decided it to be his duty to
hold on while the Germans did.
Some of those interviewed looking
at the matter in the same light jus
tify Kimberly's decision, and there
will be many people of the same
mind. Whether this theory of the
Admiral's conduct is correct or not,
there are other consideiations that
ought to modify judgment there
upon. It is not mere!' not certain
but it is very doubtful if the vessels,
had they sought the open sea, would
have lived in the fearful storm.
Foundering far from land there
would have been none loft to tell the
tale instead of the majority being
sa-'ed as was the case with the
stranding in harbor. It is only
about tv.o years since the British
gunboat Wasp was, supposedly,
caught in a typhoon in the open sea
off China never to be heard of more.
Again, there was no telling in ad
vance of the degree or duration of
the hurricane. The warships en
dured it all of a night, while the
beach was strewn with wrecks of
merchant vessels, and hopes of
moderation in the tempest were en
tertained at morning which, how
ever, were dashed by its levival
with only increased fury. The fact
that the British warship Calliope
stayed in the harbor until the last
resort, although her mission there
was not to "watch the Germans,"
may be against the foregoing theory,
that, it should he mentioned, is not
by an' means a new one, but was
one of the first explanations of the
general catastrophe heard uttered in
Honolulu on the arrival of the in
telligence. If the theory is correct
there is an element of heroism in
Admiral Kimberly's determination
to stand by his specified duty, such
as every nation expects to find in
its defenders on cither sea or land.
Since, however, the Admiral, not
withstanding the waiver of the Navy
Department in that regard, has re
quested a full investigation of his
conduct, criticism thereof is for the
SUPREME COURT-AT CHAMBERS.

Tho nowly-lnstltuted trainwnya in
Honolulu, which were constructed
under the auspices of Mossrs. Skin
ner and Co.t of London, aro likely
to prove n brilliant success and pay
the shareholders of tho Company a
largo dividend. It has been found
that the lower native element, as
well as tho Chineso and Japanese
elements in tho population of tho
Hawaiian capital, has risen beyond
all expectation to the bait of "cheap
fares and rapid and comfortable
methods of locomotion. The mis
sionaries have, to their credit, done
much to civilise tho subjects of the
roynl race of the Kamehamehai, but
the crowning mtrcy will be trams
Owing to the success of the Ho
nolulu Tramway, the eyes of native
capitalists have been opened to the
merits of another scheme the
"Oahu Railway nnd Laud Com
nanv." The objects of this Com
pany are . to make a railway from
Honolulu to Pearl River, or, as It is
sometimes called, Peail Harbour,
an inlet of the ocean, about fifteen
miles from Honolulu, and to colo
nise and exploit the land on each
tide the track of the lailwoy, as well
as a beautiful stretch of country oe
the northern shore of Pearl River,
where the United States Government
has procured the right of estab
lishing a coal depot, if not a
naval arsenal. The capital of the
new Company is 140,000. The
Company proposes to issue 60,000
7 per cent, bonds, secured as a first
charge or mortgage upon the entire
property. The giant from the Ha
waiian Legislature has been obtain
ed, and, according to our latest ad
vices, the bonds have already been
fully subscribed for. The promoter
of the scheme is Mr. B. F. Dilling
ham ; he has devoted much time
and expense to the realization of the
project; his labois arc now re
w aided with an almost unlookcd for
In 188C Mr. Dillingham was in
London and offered the undertaking
to British capitalists, who, as usual,
were busy running after great finan
cial names and great "pulls" in for
eign investments, not destined to
prove anything like so remuner
ative. With their usual ignor
ance of the wagging of the world
their notions of the Sandwich Is
lands were probably derived from
"Cook's Voyages." Honolulu, the
capital of the kingdom of Hawaii,
has now a population of 25,000, and
its commercial and political import
ance is hourly increasing. The
sugar industry of the islands is well
known to those in the trade from the
one fact alone that whereas the
average yield of cane sugar lands in
the rest of the world is about 1$
tons to the acre, the plantations in
Hawaii yield 4, 5 and even G tons
to the acre. The quantity of rice
and paddy now grown in the Ewa
district, to be tapped by the new
"Oahu Steam Railroad," equals
6,000 tons per annum, and can be
enoimoubly inci eased by improved
means of communication. The pas
senger tratllc of the proposed rail
way will be fed by the rice growers
in the Ewa district, independently
of the population of Honolulu,
many of whom will, in course of
time, make the shores of tho Pearl
River their permanent place of re
sort. The building of Yilla resi
dences forms part of Mr. Dilling
ham's scheme, which it appears has
been enthusiastically taken up by
native capitalists. A similar nnd
equally ominous effort of "native
capital" was refened to in this
journal not long since in reference
to the "Pobladora" Railway Com
pany in Buenos Ayres. British
capitalists can no longer hope for
the easy-going monopoly they have
enjoyed in the world's commerce,
but they can make the acquaintance
of Mr. Stanford and other caterers
of political geography, and they can
watch the experiments now making
in their own country in electric mo-
tive power, and be ready to apply
their knowledge remuneratively in
distant lands without waiting to be
dunned and perhaps eventually fore
stalled. London Railway Press,
