Pledged to neither Sett nor Parly,
But established for the benefit of all.
MONDAY, FEB. 17, 1890.
THE HILO RECORD.
Our esteemed lypc-wrltur contem
porary, tlic Ililo Record, succeeded
admirably in making a fool of him
self botli in liis issue inuurdiately
preceding the election and the first
Usue after the election was over.
Flimsy twaddle of Hie ward politician
)rder,9iu:li as Honolulu was deluged
with during the campaign, occupies
most of the space of the two issues.
The small, slobbery, school boy talk
against the independent candidates
Messrs. Purvis, Burchardt, and
Marsden before the election, labor
ed to impress the llilo voters with
the belief that the independents'
success meant stagnation for the
island of Hawaii, and utter ruin for
the kingdom. Here is a sample of
the lauguage and style, of which
there are whole pages: "If you
don't want Oie-eaters and obstruc
tionists in our nationnl council you
will vote for the regular convention
nominees. We want something else
besides bluster and blow. Don't be
fooled into scratching any of the
regular nominees, for such men as
are on the opposition ticket," etc.
"Sec that all those independents, as
they call themselves, are scratched
off: you don't have any need of
them," etc. "Scratch all the names
of those Englishmen on the inde
pendent, ticket. They are of no use
to the country, antl had bolter be
attending to their own business than
meddling with that of the country,"
In the next issue of the Record,
after the election, Marsden and
Hurchardt, successful independents,
are tnuud to be very c;ood fellows.
"We," says the Record, "know
him" (Marsden) "to have the in
terests of Hawaii at heart, and that
he is a man who thoroughly believes
in internal improvements, and will
work for anything that will further
the welfare of this island," etc.
"Hurchardt is too we believe to be
a thoroughly progressive man."
Is it not wonderful that one short
week should have produced such a
complete "new creation" in full
grown men ! They were as bad as
bad can be on the 4th instant the
day of the Record's issue and on
the 1 lth the next day of issue
were as good as angels! We, iu
Honolulu, cannot metamorphose
men quite so rapidly as the Ililo
people. Perhaps it would bo well
for our neighbor the Advertiser and
the retired Times to send some
of those wicked Honolulu candi
dates up to llilo for conversion, and
llien by the time the Legislature
meets we shall have a House ap
proximating to absolute perfection!
Hut after all the Record N not en
tirely satislled with the result. The
natives of Ililo did not do right.
That is, they did not vote as the
Record wished, from which our con
temporary sees "that there is yet
danger that the present good gov
ernment may be overthrown," etc.
What a scarcity of governing ma
terial there mill bo in this prosper
ous little kingdom! None but those
f one small faction can confer good
government! "They are the men,
and wisdom must perish with them!"
lioth and bunkum doubly-distilled!

THE SECRET BALLOT.
Kmioi: Hrw.KTiN : The Adver
tiser of this morning devotes a col
umn of fair criticism to election
practices, which goes to kIiow at
least how much more moral some
people's ethics can be alter an elec
tion, than befoie it. Sweet are the
uses of adversity, when it enables
us to moralise ou circumstances
which indicate "how the atmosphere
if political life lowers the ideals, de
teriorates the moral tone, and causes
the finest conscience to lose its
rrlge." How much "moral tone"
can there be in the political life of a
party who finds it necessary to run
its voting serfs who are practically
alien to the country and Ignorant of
unrt in the main indifferent to Uh po
litical issues through relays of
plantation luiias who, after having
intimidated them by threat of dis
missal, openly hand each voter his
employer's tickets and sec it de
posited in the ballot box?
How much "moral tone" and
conscience had the Advertiser ceu
sor three weeks ago, when he ap
proved of the Prime Miuister who,
as the holder of the portfolios, the
legally constituted national grand.
Jury the judge and chief inspector
of 'election practices using such
extreme partisan language as he
did? How could those opposed to
him expect fair play? The spirit of
the acting Attorney-General has
elec trilled all his subordinate
through the islands and converted
them into active agent agalnl the
people, and it Is no wonder that the
ferment of discontent and unrest is
The Advertiser closes by advocat
ing "a free uninlluenced secret bal
lot, "but did its party ever expect to
gain power by such honest means?
Let usho)c,h6wcver,that the Nobles
of Maui are satisfied that the people
will l)e content with nothing let-s;
and, if so, sonic of them will sec
now, what last session they ignored.
This morality posing of the Adver
tiser is something like a purgatorial
Tdie district has again subsided
into its customary lethargic quiet
after the momentary excitement and
activity attending the recent elec
tions. "Kabul in, as usual, went solid
for Reform, and if all places in the
islands were like this one, theic
would be but little chance for Na
tional Reform agitators and dissatis
fied oflice hunters to stir up a row.
The weather has been very
changeable for the la3t couple of
weeks, Kona wind and rain in tor
rents one day, and beautifully
clear, calm, delicious cool weather
the next. There was an incipient
thunderstorm accompanied by vivid
lightning last Thursday afternoon,
and it looked as though the elements
were preparing for a good, old
fashioned display of their strength,
but they stopped short at the threat.
Shipping is quite animated in the
harbor nowadays. The hikelike
towed out two vessels last "Wednes
day: barkentine Wrestler, Capt.
Dwars, for San Francisco, with 890
tons of sugar, valued at about $87,
000, and the barkentine Klikitat,
Capt. Cutler, with S3 1 tons, valued
at S77,ijO!).2i5. The bark Newsboy
will probably get away about the
22d inst., and the schooner Challen
ger will tollow close upon her, both
with full cargoes of sugar for San
All the mills on the island are
running to their full capacity at pre
sent and there will be a snug little
pile of sugar put out in the course
of the next three or four months.
La grippe has made its appear
ance on Maui, to the delight of
those who wish to be fashionable,
but is not present in a very malig
nant form : in fact, in by-gone days,
it would hardly be called anything
more than a simple cold. There is
a good deal of sickness and mortal
ity among the Japanese and Portu
guese, and Wailuku school has been
closed by order of Dr. Herbert,
owing to the prevalence of measles
in the district. Gos-ir.
THE HILO RECORD.
Tuesday, Feb. -1. On Friday last
one of the men on the Lurlinc had
a leg broken by the falling on it of
a bag of sugar. Dr. Williams at
tended the man and set the leg, and
the man is in a lair way at present.
The last heavy rains brought down
a great deal of drift wood and the
heavy surf at the same time threw
it up in great quantities on the
beach, where the natives gathered it
up, and piled it along Front street.
It is many years since this has hap
The late high surf came near
washing awa- some of Richardson's
lumber piled near the beach.
The brig Lurlinc left this morn
ing for San Francisco, with a lull
load of sugar. Passengers by her
are Mises Newel and Gibson.
For the last week the weather has
been exceptionally fine, and the
mud is drying up all through our
streets. Tho snow is melting fast
off the mountains.
Tuesday, Feb. 11. The barken
tine Quickstep, Tibbets master, ar
rived in this port on Thursday last,

WHY HE DIOH'T RIDE.
Many years ago two gentlemen,
both Justices of the Peace, were
walking from Glasgow to Govan (at
that lime a beautiful country road)
when they saw in the distance the
Rev. Mr. Thorn, minister of the latter
parish coining toward thein.Mr.Tlioni
was somewhat eccentric, and the
two friends resolved to have n joke
nt his expense. When they came
to the minister one of them accosted
"Good morning, Mr. Thorn, how
is it that you do not imitate ilie ex
ample of your Master, and enter the
city riding upon an ass?"
"Uecause," was the ready reply,
"they have made them a' Justices
' (he Peace." .

A WAR VESSEL.
A tloat Thnt Will Throw n Very
Hiistol, It. I., Jan. 21. The torpedo-boat
Cushing'was launched at
the llerrcshoff yards yesterday.
The vessel is 1H8 feel long, li'i feet
beam and has a depth of hold from
the crown of the deck to the keel
amidship of 10 feet and has n
draught of but I leet I inches
The Cushing's displacement is
about 10o tons ami its maximum
horse-power 1,000. The hull is
built of steel throughout, every plate
and frame being galvanized ; so are
also the anchors, railings and all
exposed metal work. The keel, of
Mat plate, is worked to form the
ram. The stern U a steel forging,
extending from the spar deck to
eight feet along the keel from the
spur of the ram, and the stern-post
is another steel forging.
Above the water the dishing will
be very plain, that she may he a
poor taiget for the shot and shell of
an enemy. Two conning towers and
two smoke stacks are her roost pro
nounced features. A whale-back
extends from forward of the conning
tower to the bow, and the whole
deck is curved so as to throw off
shot. .She has not only twin screws,
boilers and engines, but twin pump
ing machinery, torpedo tubes and
steering gear. The condenser alone
of all the mechanical equipments is
The hull is divided into eleven
compartments, separated by water
tight bulkheads, the openings in
which close on rubber gaskets, with
wedge-locking devices, which secure
them from opening against any pres
sure. The Hooding of any compart
ment, except the engine-room, would
not seriously interfere with the
working of the boat. 1 lie move
ments of the vessel will be controll
ed from two conning towers, which
are circular, of one-quarter-incli
steel plates, and have double sliding
doors. The engines may be run to
gether or singly.
The fighting powers of the boat
consist in discharging torpedoes
through the tubus in the bow, the
object being to get near enough to
the enemy before being discovered
to discharge torpedoes. To do this
requires great speed to cross the
danger space before being discover
ed or struck.
The dishing will have to approach
as close as 200 yards to be within
effective firing range. The torpe
does arc discharged by an explosive
compound. They will travel at the
rale of forty feet per second over the
surface of the water. It means sure
destruction to a ship that is struck
squarely by one of them.
THE AMERICAN NAVAL OFFICER.
One of the best compliments
which 1 have heard of as paid to the
olllcers of the "squadron of evolu
tion" was from an Englishman, who
has long been a resident of Boston.
He said he was struck by the gentle
manly and modest demeanor of these
wearers of uniforms, which impress
ed him as differing greatly from the
consequential, not to say arrogant
air of oilicers of Britisli men-of-war.
This peculiarity, he said, extended
to the sailors, who were as courteous
as the ofllcers in affording informa
tion. "Why, that squadron," he
said, "will furnish a better argument
for republicanism than any number
of South American revolutions." It
seems to me that a tribute of this
sort from a foreigner is exceedingly
satisfactory, and it opens up consi
derations of the relation of manners
to ollicial life which have a wide
application. The Englishman said
he had seen gray-haired sailors in
the Britisli navy insulted by beard
less midshipmen, and lie was much
impressed by the self-respecting ap
pearance of "Jack" on board the
squadron of evolution, and under
this head he included seamen of
various nationalities, not excepting
Chinese cooks, assimilated by
Passengers for San Francisco.
