Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But established for the benefit of all.
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 20, 1889. ;
By request, a contradiction is
given of the statement in this
morning's Advertiser, that "deaths
are numerous from diphtheria."
It is authoritatively stated that
only two deaths of children have
occurred during the past week
or eight days, and a majority
of local physicians have pronounced
the disease in both cases to have
been acute croup.
The "everybody"' mentioned in
our remarks on the balloon fatality
(see Mr. Carter's letter) naturally,
'"the connection in which the word
was uscd.referred to all who had to do
with arranging for the exhibition. This
was a considerable number but un.
known to us. And whatever blame
is due in the matter is simply on
account of depending on the daring
young aeronaut's positive assurances
that, if he could only ascend high
enough to drop before drifting, he
could land nearly where he pleased
in spite of, any wind. This over
ponfidence in himself and his appa
latUB was strikingly shown by Law
rence's throwing away of his life
buoy before ascending. People liv
ing here who know the great force
of. the trade wjnds at high eleva
tions, and who had any intercourse
with the man, ought to have im
pressed on Jiimself aud associates
l he necessity of precautions. It is
baid, however, that he was promised
tlierc.would be boats watching for
him. Let an investigation be held,
as Mr. Carter suggests-, if there is
any chance of its locating the liv
'I'g'Pisharc of responsibility. '-
, "Reduction of taxation" is one of
the propositions which some electors
wish to make an issue at the coming
elections. This proposition always
meets wilu favor among tho people
ofany country, 'and is sun to be
popular 'here. Not that , our taxa
tion is high. Compared with that of
other countries, it is moderate, very
moderately Oilr direct taxation,cp.nx,
sists of personal taxes amounting to
Si percapif' of .dll maje&)ietw'ccii
the fagPs'-'Vif '20 and .jOWiPii pro
perty tax of one per cent., the. first
three hundred dollais' woilli of pio
perty being exempt. Una is not
exorbitant. Neither arc tie iridi
rct'V taxt'b which we pay" jii tlio way
of customs duties on the imported
goods wo consume. Thanks to the
liealy of leclprocity with tho Unit
ed States, a laige pioportion of
these goods is absolutely untaxed,
and all others that are classed among
the necessaries of life, from what
ever "country imported, are required
to. pay comparatively light duties.
Ho that no elector or resident cup
justly complain that he is heavily
burdened with taxation; but, on
the other hand, jnay coiigratnlalo
liiinself.tliat his lot is cast in a coun
try wlfere "(hat particular kind of
bin den is lighter than -in peihaps
any oilier couutry. Nevertheless,
if taxation can be reduced without
neglecting or slighting necessary
public requirements, let it bo rc
luceil. We are not over-anxious,
any moro thnn tax-payers in general,
(o contribute to the public revenues,-
But really wc do not feci so heavily
weighted with government imposts
that wc wish to send members to the
Legislature pledged to reduce the
burden. It Is of vastly greater im
portance that tax-payers should
elect men able and willing to insist
that the people's taxes shall be pro
perly expended for the people's be
nefitthat they shall not be flitter
ed away on fanciful schemes or en
terprises that are piopeily private,
or on objects that aie not of public
utility, or far the payment of a half
dozen men to do one man's work, or
for' the maintenance of sinecures,
THE MECHANICS' UNION.
Editor Bui.i.r.Ti: In the able
and well-worded article furnished
by "Help Yourself" I noticed at Hie
end that he suggested Hint some of
the enterprising members of the
Mechanics' Union would spend less
of their time in d g the govern
ment and spend more of their time
in collecting statistics of who the
Chinese patrons are and then pub
lish the names in the newspapers.
I would like to stale tjiat there is
not a newspaper published in Hono
lulu large enough to allow for the
names of all that do patronise the
Chinese, aud 1 will also say Hint I as
a member of the Mechanics' Union
have never understood anyone of
the members to be d g the gov
ernment. It is not the government
but Hie system of government and
there is plenty of complaint against
the system on which part of the
government is inn.
THE BALLOON FATALITY.
EniTou Bulletin: The leading
article in your paper of yesterday's
date, referring to the death of the
voting aeronaut, says: " " This
would have suggested the precau
tion of having the adjacent sea tho
roughly patrolled with .boats to res
cue the aeionaut if he fell in the
haibor or beyond the reef. Censure
for the grievous blunder, it must bo
said, cannot be apportioned, because
it seems to have been a case of
'everybody's business' .attended to
You will paidon mc if I decline to
bear Hie portion .of blame which you
are so willing to charge'' me with as
one of the "everybody's."
Somebody is to blame for the neg
lect, criminal neglect is not too
harsh a term to use, to provide for
the rescue of the young man in case
he fell into the sea, u fall that was
considered by the young man and
his managers as likely to occur.
If our civilization is to be mea
sured by the value wd bet upon hu
man life it is certainly the duty of
our law ollicers to institute an inves
tigation into the causes of young

ALCOHOL AND LONGEVITY.
. The British Medical Association
appointed' a commission to inquire
and ascertain the aveiagc age of
three classes of drinkcib; to wit,
total abstainers from alcoholic bever
ages, moderate drinkers and sou.
The commission reported its observ
ations upon 12l deaths, divided
ii(to live categories: , 1. Total ab
stainers ; 2. Habiltwl temperate
di Inkers thoso who consume a
inoilcrntcninouiitof alcoholic liquors;
:t. Careless drinkers those who do
not mean to get drunk, but iiroinitn
ply imprudent ilrinkcis; 4. Free'and
habitual drinkers; .". Decidedly1 in
ttimpoiate drinkers sots. Accord
ing to this classification,-the average
age reached by each of these cate
gories is as follows: First class, ."1
years 22 day?; second, 015 years l.'l
days; third, fiO yeais 07 days;
foiirth,.'7 years fD days ;l!flli,fjn years

ii bioiight out th.it the teetotalers
aie the shoitest lived, the sots hav

in the avciage dotation of life. The
moderate drinkers reach the most
advanced age. Boston Transcript,
