FRIDAY, AUG. 0, 1880.
The taking down of tlic wall has
proved to outside observation that
the Palace grounds have been poor
ly kept. Mr. Dole, in his place in
the Legislature a few sessions back,
complained of the neglected state
of the royal park.
Since the storm of Thursday eve
ning a large pool of water stands on
Queen, above Alnkea street. This
shows how the tramway acts as a
dam In that place. Possibly the
same cause and effect arc elsewhere
revealed by the incident of the little
freshet. During a prolonged sea

much more damaging. There should

TWO SIDES OF THE TRUST.
A late issue of the New York
World devotes its first page to a re
presentation of "The Two Sides of
the Sugar Trust." This effort con
sists not of abstract discussion of
"the right of such combinations as
the Sugar Trust, or to ascertain
their exact position in the science of
political economy. It simply givrs
across the upper half of the page a
sketch of the grandeur with which
Theodore II. Ilavemeyer, the head
"of the Trust, has surrounded him
self by means of his profits from
sugar; then, on the lower half, a
description of the poor living of
working ppople, made worse by the
enhanced cost of sugar and other
necessaries through the greedy oper
ations of such capitalists as Ilave
meyer. The latter's wealth is placed
at from 810,000,000 to $20,000,000,
with the probability of coming nearer
the higher than the lower figure.
He lives in princely style in New
York in winter and at Newport in
summer, besides having a country
seat and fancy stock farm on a
grand scale in New Jersey. Possi
bly the representation of the two
side as made by the "World may
not be wbollj just, but it cannot
fail to be very effective in its in
fluence upon the popular mind.
A good story, none the less so lie
cause its truth is vouched for, has
just been told the writer. Lately a
young lad from the Punahou school
went to Oakland, Cnl., to further
prosecute tho unroyal road. Making
his appearance before Mr. McChes
ne3', principal of the high school
there, the young scholar was asked
by that functionary how far ad
vanced be was. As to arithmetic
the boy replied that he was in deci
mals. The principal expressed a
little surprise at the professed at
tainment of a boy of this one's age,
and to test him asked if he could
tell what was the half of one-fourth.
This taking the lad by surprise con
fused him and he said he did not
know. "Oh, they are not thorough
down in Honolulu ; I will find your
proper place," remarked the Oak
land educator. The foregoing is
one-half of the story. The other
half is more interesting, displaying
what is known as a "turning of the
tables." A young lad fresh from
Mr. McChesncy's institution of
""thorough" learning at Oakland
came to Honolulu for his vacation.
He was met on the street by a gen
tleman, who happened to be aware
of the setback ot the Punahou boy
at Oakland, and was stopped with
the question, "What is the half of
one-fourth?" The lad promptly
confessed that he did not know. A
Mscond scholar from the same insti
tution was mot later and interrogated
with the formidable question used
as a lest by the head master at his
school, but it lloored him as effec
tually as it had done both the .other
boys. Probably any of the lads if
allowed to look at tho simple pro
blem a few moments would have
been ablo to give the correct answer.
The whole case, however, shows
how easily a person may condemn
others on evidence tua exists equal
ly against himself.

DR. DWINELL'S LETTER.
Kditok IIui.i.ktin: As tho licv.
Dr. I. li. Dwincll is not hero to an
swer for himself to the strictures of
Col. Ashford upon his letter to tho
S. V. Bulletin about the Wilcox in
surrection, 1 ask leave to present
some explanation in his behalf. On
tho evening of August 1st, before
the sailinc of the Australia, Dr.
Dwincll, at his room at the Eagle
House, asked me to listen to nn ac
count of the affair which he had
written for a San Francisco paper,
and suggest any amendments. I
iiMiicmhur suggesting only one of
any importance, which was to add
an cmphatiij statement that the
umuiite was suppressed without vail
iny in any foreign aid, meaning
thereby military assistance from a
man-of-war. 1 hare no doubt that
this was exactly what Dr. Dwin-
ell intended by the expression
"without tho active partieipotion of
forcgners. ' Of course he did not
mean "white men," for he says
above, "Soon the Government call
ed out the Rifles four companies
of while drilled sharp-shooters, con
sisting of about four hundred origin
ally, but much reduced. About
one hundred responded tit once,
who were stationed iu the Opera
House and other buildings over
looking the Palaco grounds."
I thought the Government was
entitled to have this tact of call
ing in no foicign aid emphasized
in reports scut abroad. I had al
ready emphasized this in a Friend
editorial, also the fact, according to
my personal observation, that "the
Hawaiian population remained abso
lutely quiet." The same appears
in juxtaposition with the former
idea in Dr. DwinclPs letter, and
ma3' also have been inserted at my
request I do not now remember.
1 think Dr. Dwincll, a stranger
unaccustomed to our familiar use
of the word "foreigner," may be
pardoned for employing it inaccu
ratelj In general it may be held
that inaccuracies in early repoits
made amid conflicting evidence arc
entitled to great indulgence. 1 felt
very thankful that so eminent and
venerated a gentleman as Dr. Dwin-
ell should report our troubles so
well and so favorably to us.
In regard to Dr. Dninell's inci
dental reference to Col. Ashford's
tender of legal aid to Wilcox as "a
curious fact," I am sure that he was
wholly innocent of any thought of
connecting the Colonel with "the
mystery of this revolutionary at
tempt' which appeared iu the next
sentence, although it is in a new
paragraph, which indicates that the
two thoughts were disconnected in
the writer's mind. The statement
about the Colonel made no impres
sion on myself at the time, as it was
in accoid with general remark. For
myself I had felt very grateful to
Uol. Ashlord and the Rifles for their
services, and had not thought par
ticularly ill of him for olfering his
services to Wilcox, although it may
have seemed a little odd.
' The two sentences about Wilcox's
lawyer, and about the mystery,
should not have been printed in jux
taposition, but in separate paia
graphs, as they originally appeared
in the S. F. Bulletin. 1 nin anxious
that Col. Ashford should kindly note
I would not question the accuracy
of Col. Afahford's statement that
"fceveral were arrtstedon the streets
during the day for haranguing
crowds of natives in seditious lan
guage." The fact is new to inc. I
witnessed only good order in the
streets, although here and there a
good deal. Of course Col. A.'s
menus of information were incompa
rably better than my own. About
the statement that Wilcox "knew he
was a doomed man:" I never heard
it until Dr. Dwincll read it to me,
and was not prepared to contradict
it. It seemed of no great conse
As to the fact of a "mystery" ex
isting aB to the parties back of the
affair, Col. Ashford may be fully
posted. Wc outsiders and "non
combatants" know less about it,
and have to await developments.
Of course we hear many reports, and
conflicting ones, lint there is still
some mystery, and we have to say,
"we do not know," although we
uui' make guesses. Meantime 1
venture to express the hope that all
true men will stand together, and
work together for the common secur

HAVAII FOR HEALTH.
(ffilu Jteeml, Aij. -JO.)
That the climate of these inlands
as a general thing is remarkably
healthy is nn undisputed fact. To
those living in colder climates, who
visit our shot cs for their health, it
brings a now lease of life, But it
js not so iniiclr for those who visit
us, that these thoughts arc formed,
but for those whose homes are on
our shores. Most of the foreigners
residing here are living at or near
the sea coast, and year uftcr year
dwelling in this waim climate with
out change. This is sure to tell on
their general health, A change to
a cooler climate is necessary. And
wo have on these islands the sani
tarium needed. Anywhero fit an
altitudo of live or six thousand feet,
above the ecu, a cool dry atmos
phere is to bo found. One of tho
iiiicst places we know of is on the
windward slope of M.iunakea direct
ly back of the town of Ililo, Ileio
jiibt above the line of the heavy for
ests is a tract of flnu open country,
with a most delightful and iuvigor.
ating climate. Tho air is drv and
cool and life-giving. To prove U
dryness, wo wauld state, that on tho
How of 185f -0, over thirty years
ago, large ticcs arc now lying, that
were cut down by tho said How.
These to-day arc almost as sound as
the day they fell. While a few
miles below, the same sized trees
aro oonipletuly rotted through. In
the summer the thermometer at sun
rise and sunset stands about on an
average of GO Fahrenheit, while
at noon it reaches 70-7.". During
the fall and winter months, frost is
to be scnn every clear night and
often ice forms on the water pails,
during the northerly blow. A good
wood lire is a necessity almost every
evening in the year. Water is
plenty and forage for animals the
best. Horseback exercise in the
early morning on the mountain side
is imigoralingj while to those de
lighting in hunting, the wild hogs
and cattle iu the woods offer a
splendid opportunity for such sport.
Quail abound everywhere, and dur
ing the season plover and duck are
to be found. The wild native rasp
berries and ohelos abound. Pota
toes and the different grains can bo
raised easily, j'or those needing a
change from a waim to a cbol cli
mate, this is just the place to go.
While all those suffering from lung
complaint, if not too far gone, a
few months' residence will woik al
most surely a cure. Wc have iu
mind now a man who was far gone
with consumption, who decided to
try the chances there. He took up
the business of killing the wild cat
tle for their hides and lived in a
small shanty. At first he was hardly
able to walk out far enough to get a
bullock, but in a few months he was
able to run down a Hock of wild cat
tle and get a fair lot out of the num
ber. And before the year was out,
he was apparently completely cured.
A gentleman now living at Kalaeha,
went there very much troubled with
his lunjjs. The last time we saw
him his cough had almost entirely
left him, he was ilcshing up, and to
all appearances was a well man.
Now, that is the climate we have
up there and it onlv needs a good
road up to the place and a good
hotel put up there to become a place
of great resort. To get to it two
routes are open. First, by way of
Waimea and Mana, the other by
way of Hilo. By the former there
is now a fair carriage road from Ka
waihaeU) within lo miles of Laumaia
or Puakal.i, while from Hilo theie
is only a horse trail. The distance
from Ililo would be about 28 miles
while f lorn Kawaihae it is about SO.
If the Government would put a road
across from Ililo to Kona, it will
take one right up to the place.
There is but 'ittle doubt,that if the
route was opened and a good com
fortable hotel put ii), theie under
good management, that there would
be a large number of visitors there,
not only from our own country but
from foreign lauds. We wish that
some of our capitalists would lake
the matter in hand. All the lumber
necessary for such a place can be
sawed out on the spot, from koa,
ohia, and some of the other fine
woods growing there bo abundantly.
And such a place could be run
cheaply and not too heavy charges
be made, so as to bring it within the
reach of all.
Let us have our Mtiuna Kca sani
tarium started as soon as possible.
