SATURDAY, FED. IS, 1890.
The lluixr.Tix would thank lmtli
telephone companies' central ollleos
fortlit'ir assistance in getting a re
port of the steamer disaster Friday.
Captain Kothcry wlio put" liis bark
hack four hundred miles to New
castle, Australia, recently, in order
that an Injured apprentice hoy
might have cllicicnt surgical assis
tance, deserves if anybody does the
Humane Society's medal. His ac
tion redeems materially the reputa
tion of shipmasters and mates, sadly
marred of late by several tales of
brutality to tht men before the mast.
Mr. E. C. Macfarlanc suggested
a wise departure in national policy
when he said a skilled engineer
ought to bo employed to lay out
public works. It is a shameful com
mentary on our boasted progress
that tens oV thousands of dollars
should have been expended on our
principal streets within the past two
years, only to have much of the
results disappear and those streets
be made impassable in places by the
lirst considerable rainstorm all be
cause a skilled engineer did not pre
cede Hie road supervisor in the
The disaster to the steamer Ewa
off pott is an episode liable to occur
any day. It raises the question
whether Honolulu and for that,
mutter llilo, Kahului, and other re
sorts of shipping ought not to have
a life-saviilg service. Following the
practice with regard to protection
against fire on land which is to
have a volunteer organization where
a paid one is unattainable a volun
teer marine life-saving corps, with
public rewards for woik accom
plished and equipments furnished
by the state, ought to be available
out of the sturdy boatmen and hardy
fishermen of our ports. Here is a
chance for any of the newly-elected
legislators to distinguish themselves
as benefactors of humanitr.
Some l'liinsolli.tn disciple in the
new Hawaiian Legislature might at
tract a halo of lustre about his in
tellectual brow by pressing through
a measure to compel all sea-going
vessels to pass an inspection for sea
worthiness before leaving port. It
is fearful to think of the number of
valuable lives lost out ot this port
within a few years past, in large
part undoubtedly due to the rotten
or crazy Indies allowed to go to sea.
With the inspection of hulls and
lading of vessels should be an olli
oial oversight of the credentials of
skippers and the elliciency of their
mates and crews. The shipwreck
of a Hawaiian vessel .occurred not
very long ago, with a loi of life
never publicly reported, which was
bevond question caused by gross
bungling on the part of a mate and
perhaps some of the hands.
ha yaw T
RESCUE THE RACE.
Mr. Dillon did not carelessly fall
in with the eo i n m on belief that the
Hawaiian race is diminishing. He
was strongly impressed with it;
however, by the evidence of his
own trained observation. He re
marked, after bavins, been here sev
eml days, upon the small proportion
of native children to be seen about
town. This he regarded as absolute
proof tnc parallel of what he ssi.v
in lahds where other aboriginal
races are further down the decline
thut past censuses have not meas
ured the rale of present decrease.
It, was a painful conclusion for this
champion of another noble race
struggling to recover lost ground on
its native soil. As he said, the de
cay of the Hawaiian race is much
more to be regretted than tho cor
responding process now hastening
l lie few last native Australians out
of existence, because as the whole
world knows the Hawaiian is su
perior to any cognate racemodernly
It was the opinion of the late
Judge Fernandcr it is probably the
opinion of some living to-day that
the lane has been turned and that
the Hawaiian is on an upward path.
He this as it may, all light minds
should give their best thought to
the problem of how to prolong and
brighten the life tenure of this phe
nomenally kind-hearted, docile, and
intelligent people. (Jcneral Mar
xlinll and others recommend indus
trial training as a prime means of
race rejuvenation. These are un
doubtedly right, but there arc other
desirable movements Imminently
demanding organized promotion.
Home and personal hygiene, habits
of all-round temperance and .self
control, the emulation of other races
u activity antt Kiiowicuge ami
handicraft, the proper nurture and
care of children, the most, approved
nursing of the sick of any age
these and kindred things making for
health, happiness and longevity the
natives ought to be sedulously
taught, trained and practised in,
both through the agency of liberally
sustained institutes and systematic
household visitation. So many na
tive children, as even the incomplete
form of the mortuary report shows,
OHght not to be allowed to perish,
if, what is generally believed, they
could be, saved by timely medical
skill and kindly but firm insistance
on the prcsciibed treatment being
There is a woild of philantlnopic
activity and devotion waiting de
velopment in this, national problem.
The trusting of the poor but indus
trious native with -a larger share
than he holds of voting privileges
should increase his moral stamina
and self-respect, thus fortifying
him against evils from within and
without. Yet many a more import
ant boon may be waiting to be con
ferred upon the Hawaiian than the
vole for the upper legislative cham
ber, especially if they arc not
threatened with any oppression that
would not be as quickly felt and
more promptly resented by foreign
woikingmen. A vast amount- of
other potent assistance tnllawaiians
might lie rendered them by their
stronger brethren, and without the
concomitant of pauperizing inllu

A SECRET BALLOT,
EniTon llvi.r.iiiN": Every man
who desires "lair and square" elec
tions will ondoise the sentiments ex
pressed by "Voter" in your issue
of the Mill, in icgard to amending
our election law so as to secure the
fullest sceresy in voting. Condi
tions here in Honolulu are, in many
respects, different from those of the
country districts, and but little, if
any, complaint can be made con
cerning the way in which the elec
tion was conducted here in the city
on the "ith instant. Voters went to'
the various polling places and bal
loted as they pleased. If there is
any truth in well-authonticated re
ports Hie same cannot be said of
every district on the other islands.
In some places voters are said to
have been marched to the polls with
the ballots thrust, upon them by
their employers or employers' agents,
and closely watched until those bal
lots were dropped in tho box. The
law should make this kind of thing
impossible, and should be amended
to that end at the coming session.
PRACTICABILITY OF THE PANAMA
That the Panama Canal is a prac
ticable scheme is the decided opin
ion of a wellknown lloston business
man in whose practical common
sense all who know him have entire
confidence. This gentleman has
recently returned from a visit to the
Central American .States, where he
availed himself of an opportunity to
see portion's of de Lesseps' great
work on the Isthmus of Panama.
While he docs not feel confident that
the present company or the present
generation will witness its comple
tion, nor say that it is advisable at
this time to subscribe for stock or
bonds, he declares stoutly that he
saw enough to satisfy him that the
plan is highly practicable, and that
at some time in the future it will be
put through. Too much had al
ready been done with the most
stupendous and cllicicnt dredging
and rock-curbing machinery in tho
woi Id, operating in the trench and
on the mountain tops and sides, to
warrant total abandonment. It
could not be. Steam-launch com
munication wns already availed of
to the interior from the easterly side
of the isthmus for fourteen miles, as
he could observe with' his own eyes,
and he wns ciedibly informed by
tho Panama Railroad odlcials that
equally good progress had nloo been
made from the westerly side. There
could bo no question, in his viow,
that the prospoct would some time
be carried out by somebody, if not
by private corporations, 'which he
hardly thought could ever get ade
quate returns for their expenditure.
Hut by some united effort of the
great naval and commercial Powers
to whom it could not fail to be of
immense nid in their circumlocution
of the earth, the Panama Canal will
eventually be finished. Ronton
