THE WORKINGMAN'S PAPER
X "Tho Dully iiulletin." 50 cents
attti fflftuTTsrf in
Pledged to ntither Sett nor Party,
But established for the benefit of all.
SATURDAY, SEPT. 14, 1889.
The Earl of Fife has proved to be
a nobleman in deed as well as in
name, by refusing to accept the
share of the royal grants falling to
his bride, Princess Louise of Wales.
It is a grent pity that the close of
a season of baseball, so well played
by most of the clubs as to place the
Honolulu League on a p5r with the
first-class players of the United
States, should be clouded with the
scandalous imputation against the
Hawaii club of being hippodromed
by unprincipled gamblers. The
game can only be preserved in pub
lic favor henceforth by the League
co-operating with the civil authori
ties in suppressing the practice of
betting on matches.
It is said that in Russia naphtha
dregs are used everywhere as fuel,
displacing wood and coal than which
it is much -cheaper. Railways and
factories have generally adopted it.
The new fuel occupies much less
space in storage than the old, and
can be handled more readily. Where
fuel rules so high as it does in the3e
islands, it would be worth experi
menting on a decisive scale with
naphtha.- Perhaps our steamers and
railways might he run with diminish
ed expense by its adoption.
THE JAPANESE HOSPITAL.
.The. Japanese Mutual Aid Associ
ation has issued circulars in behalf
of its hospital previously referred to
in this paper. His Excellency L.
A. Thurston, Minister of the In
terior, commends the object to citi
zens in a note attached to the circu
lar. Having made hiimielf acquaint
ed with the management of the hos
pital, he thinks that it is an excel
lent institution. The following par
ticulars of the hospital being of
general interest are given with
pleasure: "Charges per month in
eluding uttendance, 9. No. of
rooms, !); No. of beds, 12; monthly
rental, 835 ; medical attendance, the
gratuitous services of a Japanese
physician of the Board of Immigia
tion; No. of patients admitted to
date, 27 ; No. of patients discharg
ed, 10; No. ol patients died, none;
No. of patients now tinder treat
ment, 8. Total amount received
from all sources, $49G.lf; total
amount of disbursements, $1151.30;
balance on hand, .8111.83." As the
future of the hospiUl depends upon
public favor, It is to be hoped there
will be a generous rcspunbe made to
the appeal by the community.

1, Galileo, philosopher, astrono
mer royal, astrologer, rendered my
self unpopular with a certain class
early in my engagement with "the
people's paper," by mildly repro
bating the introduction into the
baseball arena of gambling on tho
games. However, time (ins proved
that I onty erred in point of mild
ness. All the true champions of
tho garno are now heard declaring
that either tho betting or ball-playing
will have to go. One club is
believed to have been put out of the
tlnal contest for the honors solely
through the corruption of one or
more of its players by unprincipled
Politics are much mixed. There
are many aspirants to leadership,
the trouble with whom is to know
where to get follewings. How
would it do to let the people choose
leaders for themselves? Fir9t, come
together in their wards and districts
and tlnd out what the majority want
for a platform. Secondly, have a
national convention to resolve what
may be deemed best in the princi
ples enunciated in the smaller gath
erings into :i harmonious whole.
Then go back to the wards and dis
tricts and select men who can he
depended on for carrying out the
popular programme. Sink party dif
ferences arising out of dead ismics.
Let bygones be stowed away among
the relics of past folly. Give the
cold shoulder to politicians who have
developed nothing but selfishness
and truckling to moneyed influence.
Ncrer mind the Ministry. If the
people act together they can get
any Cabinet they want after secur
ing a good Legislature. All stand by
for a long pull, a strong pull, and a
pull all together, and get Hawaii out
of the hands of cliques, to be ruled
by the people for the greatest good
of the greatest number. This is
bosh, is it? Those who think so will
find no statute in the way of their
proposing a sensible course out of
the present muddle of politics.
Sometimes one runs against bet
ter material for legislators in gath
erings of plain and unpretending
people than the persons pushed for
ward for the houois at party con
ventions. It is certainly more re
presentative material in a great
many cases. There is frequently
solid meat to be found in the honest
sentiments of a workingman's "few
lemarks." in a manner withal com
bining fluency and force, grammar
and grace, in a higher degree than
is at the command of the generality
of men elected to the Legislature.
Still the unassuming mass wiil allow
itself to be carried away by the
prating of scheming politicians, and
influenced by the machinations of
wire-pullers, to have itself repre
sented by persons who love the peo
ple ab the bear loves fresh mutton.
A constitutional amendment seems
to affoid the best ground for an un
derstanding between the planting
and other classes upon the Chinese
question. If there is any hope that
the planters would agree to support
an amendment protecting their labor
interests, it will lie better to wait
for a new Legislature than trust to
the present one. The planters can
not consult together on the subject
before their annual convention next
month, and it would be unfair, as
well as bad policy, to prejudge them
by assuming that they are irrecon
cilable to any method of relief. To
give them the chance they are enti
tled to, however, would necessitate
abandoning all idea of a special con
vention of the Legislature. The ex
isting hftuses have made their record
on the question and it would be only
just to compel every member to be
hound by his position in the division
list. With :i powerful demonstra
tion onulde in favor of the measure,
it might be easy to have nn amend
ment rushed through at a special
sitting. But what assurance would
there be of sincerity in those who
under such circumstances attempted
to retrieve their standing? Or that
when seated in the next Lcgisla
tine by virtue of their eleventh
hour repentance, they would not
find some excuse for betraying their
Its name is mud. That is what
purports to be the water for which
tho Uonoinluan has to pay the Gov
ernment rates. Is there no way of
eliminating the, toil v Sometimes
there is enough land in our domes
tic supply of wacer to make it
doubtful if it shouldn't come under
thn law compelling tho Government
to soli It at auction as part of the
public domain. If thcru is no
method of purifying the ditch water
now supplied, let the Government
get an nppioprlation for a complete
system of artesian wells. Although
my physician says that aitcian
water is injurious from its mineral
deposits, I should prefer carrying
an iron mine about in my system
raiher than an infant taro patch.

LETTER FROM MR. KINNEY.
Editou Bulletin: An article in
last night's Bui.li.tin signed "Pan,"
an article in the P. C. A. by a rice
planter signed A. B. and secret
efforts of different kinds to crush
the present movement to secure a
Chinese constitutional amendment
all indicate tho drift of tho tide.
We fail to see what hostility to the
planter there is in the proposition to
restrict iuture Chinese importations
to plantation labor and to prevent
any more Chinese going into town
To lie sure there are risks to the
planter and all of Chinese retaliation
in making the move, but no greater
than the risks recently incurred by
others in behalf of the country at
The truth is the proposition we
make, so tar from being demagog tic
or one-sided, is a cold-blooded com
promise between the extreme views
of some sugar men who are carried
away with the idea that sugar is not
only" the backbone but all the other
bones big and little of the country,
and those on the other hand who
feeling mad and disgusted would go
to the opposite extreme whenever
the planter's interests are concerned.
The poor fool who wrote the arti
cle signed "Pan" has yet to make
the acquaintance of a demagogue
and when that individual does ap
pear on the scenes with the pathway
paved for him by such abuse as the
writer of that article has indulged
in, it will be with no such compro
mise measures as we urge, but with
a vocabulary of vituperation and of
hot appeal to prejudice against the
planter and every interest of the
planter born of precisely the same
malice and demagoguic spirit which
actuated Mr. "Pau" in characteriz
ing men like Robctt Lishman, John
Emmeluth, John Phillips and others
as "sandlotters" and "non-producers."
The insistence of even the Adver
tiser to treat the present agitation
as a movement against the planting
interests, actuated by personal hos
tility to them and not as a simple
act of self-defense by men who are
being decimated anil jammed to the
wail, is just the thing which is fast
driving the whole movement off of
its original basis of compromise and
return to unity, into an irreconcilable
conflict at the polls.
One is astonished at the utter
blindness and disregard of human
nature and human passions, which
lead many to believe that if we sup
press any agitation and do nothing,
an appeal on the eve of the election
for unity is going to keep this town,
and afterwards the legislature to
gether. Such a position justifies
the adage that "whom the gods plan
to destroy they first make mad." I
think with Mr. Oleson that even a
concession on the Chinese question
may be insullicicnt to unite us, but
if tiiat will not nothing will.
There is little hope, however, of
a reasonable settlement oven at the
eleventh hour, and the pressure of
elections upon us, where one faction
will not support the movement be
cause it is a private scheme to oust
the Ministry, an opposing faction
because it is a scheme to save them ;
and where the planter following in
sist on considering the whole move
ment ns a peisonal assault on their
iulerests, while the other side con
sider It a compromise with the plant
er where no compromise is right or
safe, and where such an asi ns
"Pan" crowns tho confusion and
adds fuel to the llame with dema
goguic abuse from the planter's
side of men who, sore, disappointed,
and anxious for the future, are only
too apt to light upon such talk as a
justification for excessive measures
at the polls,
This confession of menace to
any compromise movement is not
made sliamc-faccdly, for the truth
should help not hurt a just cause,
and every man in the movement can
well afford to follow it single-handed,
if need bo, to the close and to
put himself of record.
Tho fair and piompt presentation
of a decided uou-peisonal issue like
the Chinese question to tho people
will do more than all else to clarify
the political atmosphere and to pre
vent the dangerous agitation of a
campaign of thu purely personal
and recriminatory nature that is now
ahead of its, W. A. Kikkey.

A TYPO'S JOKE.
Tho "devil" of a newspaper at
Hastings, England, recently caused
a sensation which convulsed nil
London. AnxioiH to try his hand
at writing, tho youth constructed a
niarvclotw tale about the apparent
death and subsequent resurrection
on the point of burial of the wife of
a tradesman of that place. He pub
lished the story with all the horrible
features that a feitilo imagination
could supply, then ut it into type
himself and got it into print without
being discovered by the editor.
The story attracted great attention
in London, and an army of report
ers, pliyiciAn3 and curiosity deckers
gonernliy descended upon Hastings
in search of lurlhcr particulars, only
to be confronted by the trembling
but happy "'devil,'" who rejoiced
greatly at the sensation that he had
created. It is rumored that the
youthful genius has been offered
the post of managing editor of an
American paper in London.
