MONDAY. SEPT. 10, 1889.
It is asserted that .there is an
Indian known a3 "Old Gabriel" in
the Monterey County Hospital,
California, who is one hundred and
fifty years old. He has never used
liquor or tobacco, and has not asked
for the Bromi-Sequard elixir.
Two respectable residents of IIo
uokaa are authority for the allega
tion that a notorious criminal is con
tinued in the position of Chinese po
liceman in Ilaiuakua. A letter has
been reec'iTed by the Maishal, how
e er, stating that the man's commis
sion was revoked and that his "star"
must have been made bv himself.
A NECESSARY IMPROVEMENT.
It is an open secret that tho Clov-t-rnment
has taken the initial steps
toward having the bar at the mouth
of.- Houolnlu harbor removed so a9
to admit of the largest tonnage en
tering the port. A bydrographic
engineer has made tiigoiiomctrical
surveys and marked the channel in
correspondence with his prepared
plan. This is a work that cannot
be Jong delayed of completion with
out danger of much loss of trade to
the Kingdom. The fact of large
warships visiting us having to lie
outside perhaps only a local depriva
tion of traffic in supplies, although
in each year it amounts to a good
deal of business that might be gain
ed iffthe vessels could enter. How
ever, the great object is to prepare
our port for the enlarged commer
cial opportunities promised in the
near future. There is no doubt that
larger steamships than those now
employed will be put on the Aus
tralia and American mad route when
a contract of substantial perma
nency is made. The probability is,
indeed, that ere long two or more
lines will be running acrosss the Pa-
cific between those great countries.
It will depend largely, in any case,
upon the accommodation we have to
offer these "floating towns," what
relations they may establish with
this country. What we have to
hope for from the opening of a Cen
tral American canal, with cable com
munication, has been often mention
ed and it is- no idle-dream. Tho
"nest Legislature cannot make amis
take in being liberal enough to en
sure thoroughness in this project of
EniTOK Bulxktin: In your ifcPtio
of Thursday evening, I perceive that
tho .Rev. Sereno Bishop is to the
front again with a lone; jiginarole. in
the vain uifoit to prove that under
the new Constitution the aboriginal
.Hawaiian have not suil'eied any
abatement of thoir voting piivileges

ile tjnos on to nay that "tho flu
waiiun never before possessed the
priUh'tie of olinii foi Nobles at all,
At they wei all appointed by the
Ring; 'consequently he has not beon
lobbed of a right which lie never pos

ense true, t-o far as the ote toi
Nobles is concerned ; but nndei the
elecloial.provlBiona of tho new Con
stitution, the haoles wcio given thu
additional voting privilege which
ihey never befoic had, and yet tin's

In view of the fact that under the
old Constitution the .nativeB through
their alii controlled tho entire house
of Noblec, and had n majority of the

am 'utterly unaLlo to comprehend

Now, Mr. Editor, can you toll a
discriminating public what is this
haelcbono and whflt arc all the oth,cr
bones bits and llttlo of tho country?
Not Omeoa but Omikkox.
KuiroitBtixuTiN: 'In reading the
letter of A.B. in tho Advertiser com
menting oil theChineso question from
a i ice planter's standpoint, I was im
pressed by a sentence contained in
that letter which was used by him as
an argument in favor of chap labor
even at the expense of sacrificing
white families. He says, "It may be
a very nice imaginary picture, to
point out wished for scenes on theso
islands similar to those of New Eng
land, but these scenes cannot bo re
alized in this country."
Wo agree with A.B. in theso views
and the only thing that surprises us
is that men like A. B., after using
such an argument in favor of bring
ing in servile labor, even into those
few occupations which arc remunera
tive enough to support a civilized
home in a tropical country like ours
these same men should turn round
and insist that we can and must main
tain New England's standard of free
institutions in this country of servile
labor, and go into hysterics at the
sugcestion of class legislation and
the like. A. B. says New England
or European homes are impossible in
this country, and therefore is in favor
of u course which will eliminate a
laige part of the few that exist heie,
but he evidently expects, however,
to retail the concomitant of New
England homes.to wit, Now England
institutions -in other words, "to eat
his cake and have it too."
Is it not true that while our com
mon labor must bo performed by ser
vile people, there are quite a number
of liettcr- paid occupations which can
support members of our own civili
zation, and is it not also true that the
fact that such occupations arc so few
only intensifies the necessity of keep
ing them all for those who will sup
port and maintain our own civiliza
Editor Bulletin: I fit mly
lieve that all residents in this
of Ilamakua acree with our friend
who headed his communication to
you as "A Scandal." We would
wish to affirm his correspondence in
toto with the exception that the case
alluded to was not delayed but tried
before Mr. Paakiki, the following
morning after arrest, which justice
lound him guilty and fined him $150.
The culprit alluded to is one of
our Ilamakua police ; he is a China
man and "basks under the name of
Dan Lau Sing ; he is an inveterate
opium smoker and opium dealer,
known well to every man in Ilama
kua as such for the past ten years ;
how ho was ever placed on the po
lice force in Ilamakua is a mystery,
he has certainly dining his adminis
tration accomplished nothing for the
government. Ile has endeavored to
collect tribute from Chinamen, al
lowing them to gamble or smoke
opium, under a provision of so much
cash per head per month to be paid
over to him. He has sold and dealt
in opium in his own house and
smoked opium bought by such pur
chasers in his own bedroom and in
their company assisted them in the
consumption of Baid drug since his
installation as what! can it be pos
sible I have to write policeman.
He was as 1 before stated convict
ed and fined, the line was unpaid
but he was set at liberty without
bonds as far as we arc aware of.
Our Sheriff might probably explain
this. In conclusion we appreciate
the article our friend lias written,
and can assert that the said party,
Dan Lau Sing, after arrest,
after conviction and after liberty
rode to Kukuihaele bearing his star
of authority pinned to his breast and
defied anyone to implicate him in
any trouble, as Mr. Lyman was She
ritf and ho was his policeman. Ho
braved it to the letter, Why
couldn't he, retaining a policeman's
This uaid Chinaman has implicat
