FRIDAY, NOV. 8, 1889.
There is a very sharp curve in
the tramway, track at Queen and
Nuuanu streets, and narrow escapes
from collisions between cars and
other vehicles are frequently seen
there. The danger is of course in
creased when drivers arc making up
time on the down grade. Public
safety would be served by the wid
ening of the curve in question.
The posts put along Port street
for carrying the house electric light
cable are "beauties," but Lucre is a
possibility of their esthetic appear
ance being enhanced with a swab
bing of paint or not to have too
much public luxury coal tar. A
little heavier timber and the expen
diture of twenty cents a post in a
turner's shop would, however, have
given us all the grandeur of Corin
thian pillars along the principal
street for runaways to engage in
A letter in a recent number of The
Electrical World, New York, gives
facts including several fatal acci
dents to show that it is not enough
to put electric light wires under
ground for the avoidance of danger.
At a visit to the Hoosac Tunnel
plant the writer was presented with
piece of lead-covered cable which
he was told had occasioned a burn
in one off the dynamo armatures.
He expected "lively times in the
future for alternating current sta
tions using underground lead-cover-d
wire where the lead is not thor
oughly protected from moisture."
The American Forestry Congress,
receutly iu session in Philadelphia,
recommended that the Government
establish a Forestry Commission for
the preservation of forcsls. While
interest in forestry as a systematic
thing has, like that in many other
laudable works, been rather fitful in
this kingdom, considerable results
ia reforesting the country have been
reached within the past decade. The
Government has established a nour
ishing forest on the Makiki heights
hack of this city, and Kapiolani
Park has been thickly wooded with
a variety of domestic and exotic
trees. A standing commilteo on the
subject is maintained by the Plan
ters' Labor and Supply Co., which
sometimes yields valuable informa
tion to the public. There is, how
ever, room for a vast increase of
activity, public and private,, regard
ing the eiUiya.Um ami preservation
of forcsls. Many a naked mountain
slope might bo clothed with valuable
woods of commerce and home indus
try, and bare plains and valleys
covered with trees yielding delicious
fruits. How to give the work its
duo importance as a national under
taking, without robbing public ser
vices having nothing to spare, is a
question that should command pub
THE MINISTRY IN THE ELEC
TIONS. The Hilo Record warmly argues
the propriety of that plank of the
platform lately adopted bj the Re
formers of that town, which ex
presses confidence in the present
Ministry and consequently implies a
pledge to support it on the part of
candidates running on that issue.
Under our sytPin of bicnninl Legis
latures and the mutual independ
ence of the Executive and Legis
lative branches, it is doubtful if it
is good to follow sliict party me
thods, in so far as the personnel of
the Cabinet is concerned, in elec
tions to the Legislature. With or
dinarily an interval of two years be
tween sessions of the Legislature,
and besides a legislative body elect
ed for each occasion, it seems to be
"going it blind" to commit candi
dates tosupport an administration
whose record is not fully revealed.
Why not have candidates stand for
election upon certain principles of
government, by which if a majority
of the same profession be elected
they may decide as to whether the
Existing Cabinet shall continue in
olllceV This method would, besides,
pave the way for reconstruction of
the Cabinet, if that be found a de
sirable alternative by the majority
of the Legislature. It looks, more
over, like an unnecessary action to
drag the Ministry into a platform
for the election of a Legislature,
before any Opposition leader conies
to the front with a promise of hav
ing an acceptable Cabinet ready
when this one is overthrown. When
an administration is ousted by the
votes of the people, in cither the
United States or Great Britain, it
is only done with men in sight ready
to give the country something that
is deemed better. Josh Billings
gave sage advice when he said,
"Don't throw away dirty water till
you have clean, ' aim a peopie
would be mad under ordinary cir
cumstances to vote a Ministry out
without knowing who were to suc
ceed it. This, however, may be an
issue forced upon all who for vari
ous reasons are discontented with
the present administration, by party
zealots on the Ministerial side as
suming the ground that "reform
and progress" must necessarily
stand or fall with these four men
now composing the Cabinet. Per
haps an Opposition Ministry may
be nominated to the people long
enough before election day to enable
a choice to be made on the Minis
terial issue. Otherwise, it would,
we think, be unwise to tie the hands
of candidates so that if elected they
cannot act with the freedom and the
independence conferred on the legis
lative branch of Government by the
Constitution. The supreme duty
lying before the body politic at this
juncture is to secure the election of
a Legislature the wisest, the ablest,
the most respectable to be obtained,
leaving it complete independence to
judge the present Ministry by its
record and its policy, and to control
the choice of a new or reconstructed
Cabinet if such be deemed in the
judgment of the assembled wisdom
to be for the best interests of the
CHINESE LEARNING TO SHOOT.
The following is from Kulilow's
German Trade Kcvicw, Sept. II,
Ems District. For some time a
party of live Chinese artillery olli
ecra have been at the Krtipp shoot
ing place, near Meppen, in order to
obtain from personal observation a
clear knowledge of the manipulation
of tlio different sorts of cannon.
During their stay at Meppen, which
will probably last about nine months,
theso olllcers will principally pursue
their studies at the shooting-placo,
in addition different garrison places
will be visited so that they may ob
tain somu knowledge of the exer
cises, equipment, administration and
the servicq in general of tlio differ
ent kinds of troops, so that wben
they return home they may practi
cally apply what they have seen
here, which is the object of their
visit. This mission has been des
patched by the Vice-Hoy Li Hung
Chang, on the proposition of Colonel
Schncll, a German artillery olllcer
who has resided in China for nine
teen yeurs, and the latter gentleman
lias charge of tlio mission. Tlio for
eign visitors appear to be satislied
with their stay at Meppen and the
climate agrees with them, .j
THE REFORM REGIME.
The Hilo Record, after giving a
graphic description of the six years
preceding July 1st, LS87, proceeds
to depict the government of the
kingdom since that date, as follows:
"Willi the ndvent of the new gov
ernment we found that we had a
worse than 'Augean job' to clean
out the evils which had grown up
like rank and poisonous weeds.
Rut the people took hold of the
nintter witli a linn hand, men were
sent to the Legislature (and even
among that number the old leaven
was still woi king) who as a whole
set their faces against bribery, cor
ruption and useless expenditure.
Men who had a stake in the welfare
of the country and who, on all oc
casions, tried to look out for its
best good. Foolish and useless ap
propriations were cut off; useless
offices were abolished, and perhaps
their great fault was, their too eco
nomical spirit. Laws were passed
which made it possible for every
district to manage its own road tax,
and appropriations; for the better
assessment of taxes and various
other things, which have materially
affected the public good for the bet
ter. Money for public loads was
voted with a careful hand, the edu
cational interests were fostered to a
greater extent than ever before.
And through every department of
Government a wise ovcilooking lia.s
"The money appropriated for our
public roads, etc., lias been and is
now being spent according to law.
From one end of the islands to the
other, good roads and bridges are
being made, so that now the public
see that their money is being wisely
and usefully expended. Our local
road boards have done remarkably
well and the law which created
them is now seen to be a successful
piece of legislation. Olllcc holders
are now afraid to prostitute their
official positions for gain. Our laws
are bcin enforced all over the isl
ands as they never were before.
Incompetent officers arc removed to
give place to men who can and will
attend faithfully to their duties.
The Cabinet dare not use the public
funds otherwise than provided for
by law. Confidence in the Govern
ment is being restored. No longer
is a two million dollar loan being
asked for. Our own citizens arc
voluntarily placing in the hands of
our Government, through the Postal
Savings Bunk, more money than it
needs to carry on public works with.
The taxes, duties and other realiza
tions of Government more than
cover our running expenses. There
is no need now of the Minister of
Finance running around the streets
of Honolulu, trying to borrow a few
thousands to tide over a treasury
deficit for a month or two. Our in
ferior courts arc being filled with
men of honor, and, when the next
Legislature meets, there will be no
long idemnity bill for it to pay for
"Now look at this picture, and
then at the first, and say if we can
that the principle of Reform Gov
ernment has not been a success.
And if it has, why cannot we then
say that we repose confidence in
that Cabinet, that has carried it on
thus far, with a reasonable degree
of care and honesty of purpose.
We must remember that, in the fu
ture, no Cabinet will have the diffi
culties to overcome that this one
has, no old evils to correct, no fool
ish debts to pay as this one had.
That it is a perfect one, we nor even
they themselves will claim. Mis
takes have been made. Experience
has been gained, and we do not be
lieve that we will better ourselves
by thrusting aside these men who
have borne the brunt of the light."
