A DANCEROUS PRACTICE.
,The Advertiser is excited over a
brief item in this paper, of a boy
that Bmashed in the end of a ear
with a stone. If our contemporary
doubts the incident the expenditure
of ten ceuta on the cars will take its
reporter to and from the damaged
ear. r It . will probably cost ten or
fifteen dollars to repair the damage,
but even that is not what gives the
matter its chief importance. "We
are about to have a steam railway
line opened in addition to the tram
ways. Throwing stones at trains
and cars is an occasional pastime of
hoodlums and toughs in other coun
tries. Only four or five weeks ago
Prof. Hirst of the University of Ca
lifornia was struck- witli a stone
thrown into a railway car, and at
last accounts he was likely to lose
the sight of one eye from the injury.
Our authorities cannot be too severe
upon any person detected in this
dangerous and mad amusement. In
the case reported by us the stone
smashed in the end of the car, mak
ing a deep indentation on a surface
of six by four inches. It would
haye fractured any skull or broke
any bone that it might have struck.
We, however, forgive the witless
jibe of tbe Advertiser, as the para
graph it gets out of the affair is al
most the only item of news in this
morning's issue. That paper seems
to belong to that section of the
stone-throwing fraternity which re
sides in crystal palaces.
NATIVES AND RICE.
A letter on Hawaiian affairs in the
New York Tribune, by Mr. G. D.
Gilman of Boston, a former resident
of the islands, is copied by the Ad
vertiser with comments. It is very
fair on the whole ; but it is not so
where it institutes an unfavorable
comparison between Chinese and
natives, with respect to what the
former have done in rice cultivation
here. The same thing is often heard
in Honolulu, however, and ought to
be answered. In the first place, it
is unrasonable to expect that the
natives should have been able to
overtake the Chinese in such a pecu
liarly Chinese industry as rice pro
motion. Then there was no parti
cular necebsity of the Hawaiians to
grow rice for food ; they had oilier
products needing less toil to bring
to fruition, which fully satisfied them
in the matter of sustenance. There
is nothing so lucrative in the returns
from rice growing as to be particu
larly alluring to natives or anybody
but Orientals born to the industry.
it is not impossible to prove, even,
that toauy Chinuse lice farms have
yielded no profit to successive asso
ciations of ownerg and workers. The
natives have done and are doing
much better for themselves in leas
ing their lauds to the Chinese for
rice growing instead of wading into
the uuwhplesome work tfiemselves.
If they are to be blamed let it be
for the impiovidence many of them
have displayed in sacijflcing their
ownership of the land for the grati
fication of temporary desires. Those
that hold on to laud suitable for rice
can inak more out of rents for it
than the rlco they could themselves
raise Moreover, there is tuoro talk
about the groat things done by the
Chinese In rice cultivation than
seems to be warranted by the degree
of importance attained by that pro
duct in our trade returns. Much
land has been reclaimed from un
productive swamps, it ia true ; but
the same land would in the course
of time, with the certain develop
ment of the country's resources, be
reclaimed for cultivation anyway
if not of rice, of something more
nrofltuble. As it, is now. should the
I rice market drop below a paying
noint and it often has vcrv weak
spells this land to be made avail
able, for auything more profitable
would have to be reclaimed over
again, as a rice plantation is more
swampy when in bloom than it was
in waste primeval.
HUMBUG AND SUCH LIKE.
Editor Bullltik : Mr. Macfie in
his letter on the Chinese question in
the P. C. A. makes the following
statement: "They (the Chinese)
smoke opium and they gamble, which
is certainly very shocking and much
to be regretted, but nevertheless is
there not perhaps a little spice of
humbug about virtuous indignation
on this score?" Many even among
the anti-Chinese believe with Mr.
Macfie that such pleas do flavor of
humbug and therefore rest their ob
jection to the Chinese exclusively on
economic grounds, which is the real
cause of opposition to this race.
Many also believe, however, that
there is not only a little spice of the
humbug but a great deal of it in the
virtuous indignation of the planter
against anti-Chinese legislation on
the score of "injustice" to the
Cliinaman. The history of the sugar
inen as u class here at the islands
demonstrates that they have cared
nothing or precious little for the
Chinaman except for what they
could get out of him. Most of our
citizens remember that when Messrs.
J. O. Carter and H. M. Whitney
took up the cry of injustice to the
Chinaman in the P. U. A. in the
reign of Kamehamcha V., it was the
sugar crowd that positively "hound
ed" Carter with abuse out of the
Advertiser and did that which is
criminal in a laboring man to do,
namely, combined to boycott the
paper in question until Mr. Whitney
had positively to sell out.
The harbor of Honolulu was then
made use of as a wayport for ships
loaded with coolies going from Ma
cao to Peru. This traffic in human
beings became historically "infam
ous," and the British Government
finally stopped it with a strong hand,
but the name of J. O. Carter mean
while had become quite as infam
ous to the Queen street fraternity
for the prominent part he took in
stamping out the trade in question.
The writs of habeas corpus sued out
by him in our Courts tell the story
of what was actually done, but no
one not an actual observer can know
how utterly alone he stood in the
midst of overwhelming opposition
and abuse from sugar men at that
And lo,in these latter days.Queen
street appears in the political arena,
"his feet shod with the preparation
of the gospel," the American flag
tied around his loins, one hand
transferred from his bread basket to
his heart, the declaration of inde
pendence in the other, a coolie labor
contract and its benefits in his
bieeches' pocket, and heavily be
spangled all over with trite senti
ments in behalf of justice, human
ity, freedom and the like. No won-
der people say, "What Jumbo is
this?" No wonder that their surprise
increases when it is discovered to
be Queen street, in toggery to suit,
out hunting eternal justice" for the
A careful inspection, however, of
the new political creed of these lat
ter day saints will show, that their
pursuit.of eternal justice is not in
tended by them to interfere with a
continuance of their pet system of
dumping Asiatic male labor on a
civilized community, nor does it
necessitate immolating any of their
own class upon the altars to secure
justice to the Chinaman the poorer
whites and kanakas are intended for
alttir material. A la Abraham they
jsay to a rather anxious and interest
ed branch of the community, "The
Lord will provide a sacrifice, my
son." In fact the whole system
presents to their eyes u vista of
combined profit and moral exhilara
tion to be obtained out of tho China
man which would floor the reluc
tance of almost any man.
Meanwhile, as it dawns upon the
people just how much actual justice
is intended by the sugar party to
civilization and humanity, their sen
sations will probably he like those
of the man who, stepping up to the
village drunk to congratulate him
upon donning the blue ribbon at
last, is compelled by the combined
odor of cloves and gin that greets
him, to admit that the village has
not lost its same old "six pence"
yet. Queen street makes us "very
tired." Altar Material.
