THUILSDAY, VV.U. 20, 1890.
ROADS PAST AND PRESENT.
The Ailvcrtisur of Tuesday liml
the following pa'-ago- in :n attlclcr
Wp have Just had "one of our
lreineudous old-fashioned konas,
ami yet, two ila.vs after the downpour,
tin! streets were, in most pans of
the town, in fair condition. There
wa pel haps as much pleahiire driv
ing last Sunday as ever, and in
many directions' tin streets were al
most perfectly dry. The discreet
nitnrally kept to the inakai roads.
During no previous regime would
such a state of affairs have been
There arc two or throe observa
tions to be made on the foiegoing
Without condemning any former
roads administration, the same coni
pirison might be made, in almost
any town or district in America, be
l .veen the roads of to-day and those
of a past period. The exceptions
would be in cases where towns are
laid out systematically at their
foundation, with piowsion for good
roads and drainage being secured as
the borders of the towns arc ex
tended. Many if not most of the
large cities began on a village plan,
the pioneer builders being oblivious
of the possibilities and probabilities
of growth. The older streets of
Uoston itself, the "hub of the
universe" as it people have fondly
called it, are said to have been laid
mil on the lines of the cow paths
that threaded the site. There is
scarcely a city of any age in Amer
ica wheie millions of dollars have
not been expended in widening
Htreets made narrow in the early
days, when economy of ground for
the public was exercised although
vast unoccupied areas stretched out
on all sides. Whatever improvement
we see in Honolulu must fairly in'
part be attributed to the necessities
of the city's growth.
It is admitted that in the latter
part at least of the previous legime
to this the binds for roads and
bridges throughout the kingdom
were not well administered. To a
large extent the funds weie not ap
plied to their objects. There was a
perennial and hopeless indebtedness
of the treasury to the countiy dib
it icts for road tases that by law
weie only to be expended in the dis
tricts. Itroken stone for macadam
izing streets in the city was u-cd for
other purpncs. The city road
service came to be made a source of
private revenue in various ways.
All this admitted, there was much
laitliful work done on the roads
piiortothe last few months of the
(iibson administiation. Some of
thin work stands as a monumental
lefutation of such sweeping partisan
statements as that above quoted
trom the Advcitiser. Richards
street, for instance, on which the
present Government lias bad to ex
pend little or nothing to keep in re
pair, while it remains by all odds
the best made and smoothest drive
in Honolulu which is in good con
dition without mud even in the
midst of the most "tretnemlntw, old
tashioned koua," not having to
abide the forty-eight hours of line
weather required to make some
loads of the present regime com
fortably passable on foot or on
wheels. There is Queen sliect from
I'unohbowl street to Fori street, re
made in 1881 so as to be the best of
our main thoroughfares for four
years. The Tabula road rebuilt to
the Kalilii load the same year was
in excellent condition for tin oc
years, and would be still, in spite of
a very large tiallle, except for the
coral covering being too soft for en
durance. This road has, however,
been in part renewed with the same
material within the past few months,
but so much less substantially than
befoie that the first heavy rain made
it a bog throughout. Kvcn the J'ali
load was under the old regime kept
in a pretty good fair-weather condi
tion, and that is the most that can
be said for it now. To look at a
longer stretch, take the Kwa road.
This important route was remark
ably well maintained under the old
legime. .It was in 188(! that the
writer of these lines was driven from
Waialua, with two others in a wa
gon drawn by a span of horses, and
the linio'-made was precisely our
hours froin Sir. llalstead's gate to
town. Considering the distance of
Lwoiitv-cfglil'iiiilcs, the abounding
steep hills, mid the fact that the
rain made the ascent ftom Waialua
very heavy, this timo could not be
made on anything but tolerable
ICvidences of other faithful work
before the present lloverniuont
came on the scene could piobably
bo given by persons who travel more
than the writer. Hut the foiegoing
instances will Milllec to show thai
people may carry their condemna
tion of the past too lar. in their go
ing about to establish their part,':
righteousness on the inins of an ex
tinct party's lepntation. hven as
to the shortcomings of the former
administration which have been ad
mitted, the party now ruling al
though condemned by a majority of
the people ought to be careful ill
portiaying contrasts. Everything
has not been above suspicion in the
administration of the roads and
bridges appiopriations by the pre
sent Government. The funds are
more than suspected to have pioved
a lucrative resource to private pock
ets and interests without correspond
ing public benefit. These arc matters,
however, not for promiscuous asser
tion now, but tor the stiict investi
gation of the new Legislature that,
we fully believe, is in the majority
CONTACIOUSNESS OF PNEUMONIA.
From a long at tide by Nelter on
"The Cojitagiousness of Pneumo
nia,"' these conclusions are drawn:
1. Pneumonia is a contagious dis
ease of parasitic origin, and is
transmissible either directly or by
the inteivention of a third person,
cr by inanimate objects, such as
wearing appaiel, etc.
2. The pueumocoeci are not des
troyed by desiccation, and are dif
fusible through the air but not to
great distances, at most the interval
between three hospital beds. Ihey
maintain their, virulence for a period
which has not been definitely deter
mined, but probably never more
than three years.
.". Contagion is possible through
the entile course of the disease, and
even after lecovcry.
I. The period of incubation aver
ages from five to seven days, but
may vary between one and twenty.
"i. Patients who have passed
through pneumonia arc dangerous
both to themselves and their neigh
bors, as living micorocci may be
found in thdr saliva many years
after. Thence, in part, the epide
mic appearantc ot the disease in
certain families during long periods,
and also its frequent recurrence in
certain individuals who have once
0. l!igid quarantine seems hardly
necessary, but other persons should
avoid too intimate relations with
them. The sick room should be
ventilated and disinfected as thor
oughly as possible, and every pre
caution taken to prevent the spread
of the disease as in other conta
gions. HE COULDN'T TELL.
A late respected general manager
of the St. l'aul road on one occasion
appeared at the repair sliops of the
company in Milwaukee and becoming
interested in the woik of one of the
mechanics icmaiked: "Young man,
it seems to me that you aie not do
ing that correctly." The woikman
looked up with Mini cine contempt at
the "stranger and replied promptly:
'It's none of vour business you
blamed idiot." " This nettled 'the
6ld man and in a voice tiembling
with rage he paraly.cd the mechanic
with: "Yes, .sir, it is my business;
I'm the manager of this road."
"Kxcitsc me, sir," responded the
poor fellow, "I was not aware of
the fact ; but you sec when a darned
fool corner around here we can't
tell whether he is the manager or
nobody." The old gentleman saw
the point and pa-sed on. Milwau
