DAILY BULLETIN: HONOLULU, H. I,, DECEMBBK t, 18S9,

WEDNESDAY, IM'.C. 4, lSS'J.
The Friend for Deeoinbei has a
variety of original matter, including
editorials on cuuent event. The
acquittal of Wilcox is libcrall
treated not exactly condoned, but
icwcd In an extenuating Unlit as
from the natives' standpoint.
The mutuary report for Ko em
ber shows a less number of dcatli9
than during the corresponding month
last year, but a greater number than
during the picvious three years
1885-S7. There is a smaller pro-'
portion of child ten in the returns
than usual. For the first time the
sometime pievalcnt epidemic of
measles appears in the list of causes,
having within the past month claim
ed two victims. It is to be hoped
this disease will be eradicated be
fore the type loses the mildness that
has characterised it. The number
of "unattended" cases and that of
"unknown" i-atibcs are undiil.v large
'1 ho Mechanics' Union having
adopted the distinctive doottines of
the Hawaiian Political Association,
has appropriately followed this ac
tion by coalescing with the same or
ganization for the purpose of nomi
nating candidates, foi the legisla
ture. Manv thoughtful citizens
who admired the originally declared
purposes of the Union have had
their sympathies shaken by the
platform adopted, which uppcars to
their minds as containing a combina
tion of reactionary and ultca-iadical
elements. It remains to be seen
whether their choice of candidates
will be such as to make up in some
degree for what the affiliated associ
ations lose b' their declared politi
cal principles. As the latter can
not, in their entirety, be adopted
until passed upon at two general
elections, a Noble and Kopresentaliv e
ticket of good men. even support
ing the objectionable proposals,
might disarm appichensions regard
ing the combination.
FIFTY YEARS AGO.
A. hall was fdlcd yos-
Y. M. U. A. Hall was
terday evening with an audience
that included most of the older resi
dents and descendants of the pio
noeis of Hawaiian civilisation, to
hear General J. F. 15. Marshall's
talk on "Hawaii Fifty Years Ago."
The speaker arriving on the plattoim
muler escort of Hon. Ilcniy "Water
house, i'i esurient Y. M. C. A., and
Mr. F. J. Lowrcy, was heartily ap
plauded and, after a brief introduc
tion from Mr. W., immediately be
gan leading his leminisceuces of a
lulf century ago. Here and there
hti made interesting crbal additions
to what he had wntten.
When General Marshall arrived
hcic fifty ears ago, before the days
of thcelcctiic telegraph and when
no steam essel had yet entered the
Pacific, Hawaii's intercourse with
the world consisted of a yeaily hhip
liom Boston, an occasional one from
Kurqpean and Asiatic ports, a small
trade, with Pacific coast ports from
Karaschatka to Valparaiso, and the
Hpring and fall visits of the whaliug
fleet. At intervals a vessel of war
would look in, sometimes taking a
hind in politics by giving n little
inoruorles3 wholesome advice, at
the cannon's mouth or that of the
commander, and sailing away lcavo
one party jubilant and the other
down in the mouth, which conditions
would perhaps be reversed by the
next warship that arrived. Time
was then of little account and items
of stale news were as intciesting as
are now the latest telegrams. Kx
Htence in this delicious climate un
der those conditions was pieferablo
to the hurried, bustling life of the
present day with its tcainboats,
laihoads, telephones, and sharp
competition. Thu speaker told of u
resident who got a cat's file of the
Boston Transcript' ly the spring
ship, which ho icad but one number
a day, strictly, so that he had his
dailtv p.iper for the ensuing jear.
On returning in 1810 from a visit
to the Slates, General Marshall
found that the California gold fever
had made a social and commercial
revolution at Honolulu in his ab
sence. The wild mad lush to the
mines had begun, and tho easy.
going, indolent character of tho
place had gone forever. Pierce A
Brewer were entrusted with the first
fthipment of gold over mndc to the
l'.istein States. Their correspond'
int, however left the precious pack
age 'to bo called for" in a Itoston
hotel', and forgetting it went to Now
Orleans to winter. The clerk re
turned it to him on his next visit to
Itoston tho following summer and it
was delivered to the consignee. Mi,
Hargicaves who had got a heap of
gold dust in California chaitored a
vessel here to exchango it in Aus
tralia for goods in gn-at demand in
California. Tbeie was a picked
crow sworn to aecrwy and the yea-
eel was regarded with great euspl
oion In Australia, being described
aB a "mystery" in placards, until
one of the crew was mado drunk
nnd lot out the secret, when the
placards announced "tho mystery
solved," and in the ensuing excite
ment six ships were speedily loaded
for California llnrgreaves was
destined aftetward to be the dis
coverer of gold in Australia, for
which he obtained a bonus of
20,000 from tho old and Now Colo
nies between them.
General Marshall first nrnved hero
In 1831, coming under medical ad
vice. On landing from the ship
Fama the first striking sight was tho
jinrikiBha of the Japanese, which
was tho fnshioimblo equipage of the
place. Klnau, the high chlefess and
premier, had died two days pre
vious! v, ami her body lay In Rtate,
with wailing by it day and night, for
two months, when the funcial took
place, attended by the whole popu
lation a strange and most impres
sive mingling of barbaric and civil
ized pomp and ceremony, which he
had never seen equaled hero or else
where. The first house he entered
was that of Capt. Dominis, fnthor
of the ex-Governor, which is still
standing two doors makai of the
Catholic Church. It was reached
then through tuo patches, that
covered what is now Fort stieet
above Hotel stieet.
The whaling ships wont to I,aha-
ina, llilo, or some other port for
supplies, then came to Honolulu to
do their necessary financial busi
ness; it was a beautiful and not un
common sight to sre over a hundred
full-rigged ships in the ofilng. Al
most everybody had a saddle horse,
and on Saturday afternoons, when
every man, woman, and child, from
the king with his suite to his hum
blest subject, and every jack-tar,
as well as his captain and c-lllcers,
wcru out on the nlaina for an cones-
trian frolic, it was a brilliant and
many-lined sccno not to be forgot
ten. Resides the tfnrikishns there
was only one wheeled vehicle, with
one carriage hoisc called "Rocky
Mountain," in the kingdom. These
were owned by 1'ierco & Biewer,
and being in constant requisition
foriuvalidB the two-wheeled open
gig, the vehicle in question, was
called the "hospital carriage." In
the later period of graded streets,
among the carriages imported was a
heavy English chariot which0 had
been sent by Queen Victoria to
Queen Pomarc of the Society Isl
ands whero it was useless.
The first large sugar plantation
was established by Ladd & Co. on
Kauai in 18;57 or '8. The first num
ber of the Garotte, July 30, 1800,
spoke hopefully of Kauai enter
prises, praising some samples of
picserved oranges and corned beef
shipped to Honolulu. King Kauike
aouli wrote a letter to Stephen I).
Mcintosh approving of the news
paper venture referred to, The
first plowing was done on the plan
tation with a host of natives as the
motive power. A silk plantation
was started on Kauai, and by the
bark i'lora, with a cargo of 200 tons
of sugar, the first shipment of taw
silk was mude to New York, whero
it was piououneed unsurpassed for
evenness of thread, strength, and
gloss. One sugar planter pulled up
a large area of planted cano and
replaced it with mulberry trees, but
the silk industry so quickly failed
that the operation was revcised by
the mmbeiry giving place to cane.
Coffee plantations were also stai ted
at this time, and this plant is still
grown at a profit in tome places.
In 15 10, the year in which tho
missionaiy Williams and his compa
nion weie killed by the natives at
Erromaiiga, the native schooner Ke
ola eopsucd, with 03s of nearly all
on board, nnd two women performed
the almost incredible feat of swiin
miiic twentv-fivc miles in about 30
hours, to the shoro at Kahoolawo,
one of them carrying her husband on
her back for a long distance till ho
died trom exhaustion.
The only foteign chinch was tho
Seamen's Bethel, sustained by the
Seamen's Aid Sooicty of New York,
the pastor being Rev. John Dicll,
predecessor of the lato Dr. Damon.
An effort was made to start an Epis
copalcliurch, the hpi vices being read
for some time by J'. A. Itrinsmndo,
U. S. Consul. The Sandwich Isl
ands Gazette having died, .Taines
Jackson Jarvrs (historian of tho
Islands) in 1810 started tho Poly
nesian, a weekly newspaper. When
Janes loft. in 1811 Mr. Marshall
was persuaded to continue tho
sheet.- He published a glowing
piospcclus and editorial in tho first
issue, but his printer celebrated the
groat event so heartily thot, in a
happy but inebriated condition, he
shipped in a whaler for a cruise In
the Arctic Ocean.
Tho General refci red to iho uu
successful enterprises of those days,
saying that the judgment of pioneers
was olten vindicated by the succcas
of ptliurs who profited by their
deaily-bought experience. Ho closed
with a regtotful allusion to the de
cadence of the native nice. Ah a
remedy he had great faith in tho
efficacy of industrial schools, hearti
ly agreeing with General Armstrong
that the hope of tho race is in the
gcncial Intioduotlon of such schools
as the Kaiuehiinicha Schools and tho
ono about to bo established on Kan.
ni. As a trustee of thn Jlarnplon
Institute ho was in a position to
speak ol the wonderful bUt-ccus In
the United States of what is known
as tho "Hampton idea," as applied
to the training of Iho negro and tho
Indian. It had conquci ed tho pre
judice and tho opposition of ex-
pcrienoed educntors, against whoso
influcnco Genoral Aimstrong with
difficulty obtained tho opportunity
of putting tho idea to tho test. The
essential part of the woik was to
keep the pupils constantly occupied
with something. "When the negro
was delivered from slavery ho con
sidered labor barbarous, and wanted
a classical education so that he
could live by his wits. A diploma
from the Hampton Instituto is now
sufficient rceotnmendation with su
pervisors all over the country. The
lectin or had strong hope that, If
universally adopted here, Industrial
education would give vitality, forco
and manliness, not only to the native
children but to those of other na
tionalities born nl these Islands.
Mr. Lowiey, at the conclusion of
the tnlk, conveyed tho thanks of the
audience to General Marshall.
WE THE PEOPLE.
Km ron Hut i.r.Tix : Did you ever
hear of the "Three Tailors of Too
ley street?" We thu people. I was
reminded of them when I read thu
wants of the three gentlemen from
llilo, addressed to tho Cabinet in
your last week's issue. What these
fellows want is a stuffed club right
back of the neck to keep them quiet.
The people of the llilo District
(especially on the several planta
tions) are all right and when the
proper time comes to vote will be in
Hilo town en masse to snow under
all the old beach combers who make
