FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 1889.
The figures given of the number
of passengers carried in single trips
of tramcars on the eleventh of June
had nothing to do with the fact that
115 passengers were on one car
from Waikiki at one time Saturday
A complaint was heard prior to
last Saturday that the band did not
play at the baseball matches. Now
a correspondent objects to the music
because it drowns the voice of the
umpire. The intervals between the
innings are too short to admit of
more than two or three bars of a se
lection, so that to permit of any con
nected harmonies the band playing
must lap over on the ball playing.
Perhaps the scorers should take a
poll of the spectators as to whether
the music is to be or not to be.
The Bulletin's editorial policy
forbids interference with the intrin
sic concerns of any one nationality
in this mixed community. Although
the personnel of foreign official repre
sentatives here is a proper topic for
polite conversation, it is not one for
general public discussion as a
domestic question except,of course,
in a case where the representative
might create or be drawn into an
issue with either the Government or
the community. There is, however,
no apology required on the part of
a newspaper for granting publicity
to the views of a citizen of any
country upon a question in which
his countrymen have naturally a
The Advertiser has elected to
occupy the position of & shameless
falsifier. It wantonly denied the
truth of a simple and direct state
ment in this paper, but having been
challenged to make good its contra
diction resorts to the liar's favorite
game of bluff. The only possible
extenuation of its course is that it
acted in ignoranco of that cardinal
principle of journalistic ethics,
which forbids one newspaper dis
crediting the news reports of an
other without being able to prove
them inaccurate. "A public journal
should aim high," the Advertiser
remarked the other day. Yes, and
a public journal is supposed to have
gentlemen behind it with a high
mark in their eye to aim at, but our
morning contemporary seems anx
ious to prove that its management
is of a very different description.
Honolulu will before long have
very adequate facilities of cheap
and expeditious transit, by both
horse and steam cars, throughout
the city bounds and reaching to
very attractive regions beyond.
These improvements will mark a
Tery decided advancement in tho
conditions of life obtaining in this
capital city and the island pf Oahu,
It ia not too optimistic to anticipate,
in view of the rapidity of these
consummations when once earnestly
undertaken, that the steam railway
will go on from point to point, until
every accessiblo hamlet on the is
land will be brought into communi
cation with the city thereby. Oahu
will be very well favored them in
regard to insular means of travel.
The next great object of our seek
ing, not waiting necessarily for the
full roftllaatlon of th -foiegolng
boon, is naturally the improvement
of communications both between
this and tho other islands and be
tween diffcront points on those is
lands. Not only is more frequency
of these communications required
but tho rates of faro arc entirely too
high. With fifteen to eighteen
coasting steniners running out of
this poit, there ought to bo at least
a tri-weekly mail to tho principal
towns on tho other islands. To
effect this desideratum, however,
some inducement would have to be
offered to tho steamship companies.
. . , t . i
The country bus surely arrived at a
country bus surely
stage of progress and prosperity
when its Government cannot afford
to be in the position of a pauper to
ward common carriers in the matter
of mail conveyance. "With payment
for carrying the mails under con
tract, such as every other country
is obliged to make, a demand might
be made with good grace on behalf
of the public for lower rates of pas
senger fare from the companies so
subsidized. Both through and way
faies on our steamers nre exorbit
ant for the distances, as compared
with the charges for the like service
elsewhere. The provision of two
public carriage routes to the vol
cano presuming that tho Govern
ment will buy over the Punaluu
road ought to be regarded as
reason for immediate reduction in
fares to that prime object of attrac
tion. This is fairly to be claimed
upon the principle that where pub
lic money is expended the people
ought to distinctly share in the re
sulting benefits. Anyway, we hold
that it is time for the Government
to consider a policy of radical re
form in the matter of internal com
munications. THE MORNINC PAPER.
Editou Bollltin: I took up this
morning's Advertiser and saw in it,
"If you want the latest news read
the Daily Advertiser." Not being
able to attend the mooting of the
Stranger's Friend Society, I looked
for a report of the proceedings. To
my utter disgust I could not find a
line, and also notice that tho very
excellent band concert at Emma
Squaic passes almost unnoticed.
I cannot help but say, shame on a
paper that ignores such a valuable
organization as the Stranger's Friend
Society. As a newspaper, what is
the Advertiser good for anyway?
ANOTHER COUNTY HEARD FROM.
Editor Bulletin : "When it was
first rumored in Honolulu that D.
A. McKinley either had been or
would soon be appointed to fill one
of the United States lepresentative
positions here, it was a common re
mark among those desiring to hear
of their favorites or friends being
appointed, or among those otherwise
dissatisfied with the choice of Mr.
McKinley, that he could not be ap
pointed by the United States Gov
ernment inasmuch as lie must hare
become and still is a Hawaiian citi
zen to receive the appointment he
now holds from this Government.
When Mr. H. "W. Severance's ap
pointment was announced, although
he became a naturalized citizen in
Dec, 18G1, and there is nothing in
the record of that fact to show that
there has been any change in it, and
though many of those above men
tioned as opposed to Mr. McKinley
must have known this or at least
have known that Mr. Severance
must have becomo a Hawaiian citi
zen to have held the same position
that he was asked to vacate to allow
Mr. McKinley to succeed him, the
objection above mentioned no longer
Alt those, if any, opposed to Mr.
Severance's appointment refrain
from expressing themselves from the
same motive that influenced several
Government ollicials, attorneys and
collectors yesterday, when applied
to by a laborer to stop the passport
of a wealthy and aged citizen about
to leave on the Umatilla, for refus
ing to pay said laborer a few dol
lars balance claimed due him.
It is generally conceded that Mr.
McKinley is backed by Mr. Claus
Spreckels; that itself is certainly
sulllcient to act like rubbing the fur
the wrong way of nearly all the par
ties here who smiled so blandly
when Mr. Severance's appointment
It has been the .known policy of
the United States for years, in se
lecting its representatives to this
country, to choose either entire
strangers or at least disinterested
persons to it. Mr. Blaine lias seen
lit to either reverse this policy
hitherto successful as regards the
United States, or lie has decided to
sacrifice the interests of that coun
try here by satisfying the claims of
friendship upon himself.
The writer hereof is a former em
ployee of Mr. Claus Spreckels and
one not personally opposed to Mr.

to hear our band play, but at a base

and author of an excellent work on
the "Geology of Wej mouth and the

a great traveller, having travelled
all over Europe, and pene
