Pledged to neither Seel nor Party,
But established for the benefit of all.
WEDNESDAY, MAR. 12, 18S0.
Whoever instigated Hawaiian ex
flii.sinit in Samoa, the pretext in all
piohahility was precaution against
leprosy. If King Malictoa was led
to believe that there was danger of
the scourge from this quarter, surely
nobody here can find any fault with
him for his action. As a matter of
fact there is something like n panic
about leprosy in Samoa, caused by
the development of one fatal case
and others reported.
One of the. good results of the fire
of April, 188G, which destroyed the
gruntcr part of Chinatown, was the
opening of new streets, and the wid
ening and extension of old ones.
The Government of the day em
braced the opportunity presented,
and prohibited the erection of build
ings in the devastated district until
llie new lines of streets had been
marked. Bethel, Niiuanu, King,
Mtuinakea, Smith, and Hotel streets
were widened, and the latter two ex
tended. A new street was opened
parallel with ilaunakca street, and
about midway between it and the
King street bridge. Another new
.street was opened from Smith street
to the Nuuanu stream, at right
angles with Beretania street. It has
been recently extended at the cast
end, to connect with Nuuanu street,
and Smith slieet has been widened
at its upper end, near its junction
wilh Beretania street.
All these widnnings, extensions,
and new streets arc admitted to have
been needed, and therefore the cost
of the ncccssarj' land, etc., a proper
expenditure. Not only was-publie
convenience to be served thereby,
but the public heallh was still more
deeply concerned. That portion of
the town, for the most part, was
densely populated, and the open
ings were too few and narrow for a
sulllcient circulation of air to main
tain u healthful condition. More
lungs were needed, and the Govern
ment acted properly in providing
them ; but the Government has neg
lected to jiut them into n proper
breathing condition and herein has
failed of its duty.
Bethel, King, and Nuuanu streets,
and a portion of Hotel street have
had some attention ; but all the
other9 remain as they were. Old
streets that have been widened still
hIiow the embankments towards the
outer sides, where the old lines of
building existed ; and the new
streets are full of pits and banks,
dangeious to travel. There is no
drainage, and it is next to impossi
ble to maintain cleanliness in some
places. The water stands in pools,
and the masses of putrifying gar
bage emit pestilential malaria. That
poitiou of street recently opened,
between Nuuanu and Smith streets,
is a quagmire and rubbish hole.
Talk of such places as conveniences
for travel and business, and auxili
aries to health ! They are positively
traps of danger and nurseries of
disease disease, the germs of which
may be scattered from there to all
parts of the town. Honolulu is bet
ter without such lungs as belch forth
nothing but noxious odors, tho seeds
The part of the town of which wo
arc speaking is a glaring shame, a
visible disgiace to the department
of government charged with the care
of public thoroughfares. Not a sin
gle stroke, except the pulling down
of shanties, has been done on thoso
streets by the present Administra
tion during its nearly three years of
olllce. The land owners and dwellers
in that neglected region have paid
llieir taxes year after year, and

walled patiently and dumbly until
now for the Government to do some
thing in return ;. and still they wait.
What have they done that they
should be ho signally slighted?
They are blamed for the lllthy state
of their streets, a state which they
cannot help. How can thorough
fans wilh such uneven sin faces,
and not llie faintest, apology for
drainage, be otherwise?
It may not have been within the
means of the Government to have
thoroughly made and macadamized
all the streets named. Nor was this
expected. But what the Un.t.urix
suggested years ago could have been
done then, as a beginning, and can
be done now, at trilling cost. It is
this: Giade; fill up the pits with
the banks; loimd up llie centre with
earlli fiom the outer sides, thus
creating drainage fiom the centre
and opening channels for the escape
of water ; pack with the steam roller.
This would make good fair-weather
roads, and obviate the principal dis
abilities that now cxi3t. Macadam
izing could follow at a more conven
ient'scason. KING MALIETOA.
Konon Bui.i.KTis: The acidity
resulting from llie reactionary bile
of the recent ill-digested defeat of
the party, whom the young "scrub"
of the P. C. Advertiser could not
pull through is seen once in a while.
I am sorry that the life of one so
young should he nipped in the bud,
as it were, by such a "nightmare
reminiscence" as a defeat after such
heroic efforts on the part of said
"scrub." I would suggest that the
young "scrub" put himself "under
heavy bonds" to give his mud-thrower
a rest ; as, at the rate he has been
scavengering, ho will bury his poor
defunct party clean out of sight.

Editou Bn.i.nix: Though only
a recent arrival I cannot refrain
from penning a few lines to you on
the above subject. In a recent is
sue I notice the opinion of your po
lice magistrate re the enormity of
the offense of drunkenness compar
ed to that of assault and battery.
A "drunk" is lined S1 (this appears
to be the usual line) and another
man for assaulting his wife only
pays $.'! and 2 costs or S in all. In
my country (Australia), a "drunk"
is fined probably .Is. (or $1.2f) for
the first offense, while those con
cerned in assault arc seldom allowed
the option of a fine, but are sen
tenced to terms of imprisonment
from one month to five years or
more, according lo the enormity of
the ofi'cnsc. A "drunkard" is not
always a criminal, but a man cap
able of committing assault and bat
tery (especially on a female) is, L
think, more entitled to the epithet,
and should be dealt with accord
LET THE DEAD DOG LIE.
Eon on Hri.i.r.ris : In this morn
ing's Advertiser X X utters another
wail over the lost cause. There is
so much of clerical cant about it
that a fellow is almost impelled to
throw llible at him and say, "Verily,
thou hast been weighed," etc.
Something always reminds the
pious maw worm of a "story," and
this one is by X X :
"It has been said that in the early
days of the mission in those Islands,
a Chinaman who had picked up a
little English in the course of his
migrations, called upon a missionary
who asked him if he had ever heard
of God and his claims on mankind.
'Oh, yes,' lie replied, 'worship God,
worship devil, alloc same.' "
If ever a Chinaman was in II113
yarn, it would prove him to have
been a keen observer: that is, pro
vided that the elect of the "early
days of the mission" were anything
like some of them arc in these latter
days. Paul, the great apostle, once
wiotc of a certain set. of professed
believers and said, "their god is
their belly." Possibly this was an
exaggerated expression; and the
Chinaman, who was probably ignor
ant of tho Westminster Confession
or even the Shorter Catechism, might
have intended to convey his impres
sion of the relative moral value in
practice of the gods of China and
"Audio! Like a lot of unreason
ing sheep, the Hawaiian again turns
to and elects the teacher of perjury
and some of the very men whose
corruption led lo the Reform move
ment which they so substantially
endorsed but two years previously."
Rather over two years, bi other!
long enough as a political courtship
to sec if we could "hitch." "And
lo," wc did ascend by the Boule
vard Thurston lo the top of Mount
Punchbowl and whitcman and ka
naka did look down and behold do
ings not expected at the period of
conjunction in 1887. And lo! some
of the Reform family have built
them a new house. And lo! what
are you going to do about it? And
lo! why art thou troubled, XX?
Hast thou not read the Friend, and
found thyself in a majority? Or
lo! art thou convinced that thy
Friend hast lied unto thee? Oh, lie
upon the thought!
Here comes the cloven fool :
"Should people of so little ability
to discriminate between good and
evil, bo trusted with llie franchise?"
,uBtyou try it. And lo! thou
shall sec what thou slialt see.
THE KAUHI MATTER.
A complaint was filed by Muhoo
(w.) and C. B. Kiuiakanul, her hus
band, vs. Anakalea Kaulil and Ke
uhi in the Supreme Court, October
111, 18811. The complaint recites
that Mahoc and her bi other Keahi
are entitled to undivided interest in
apoitionof Land Commission No.
!i:i27, Hoyal 1'alcnt No. 171. A
dispute had long existed between
them and L. Kaiua concerning the
validity ol a deed made by the an
cestor of Mahoc and Keahi to Kaina,
the brothcr'and sister alleging the
conveyance to be fraudulent and
void, and Kaina contending for its
Katihi was retained by Mahoc and
Keahi to effect a compromise with
Kaiua and to obtain a release of his
claim to the propeity.. The com
plaint recites lliat defendant while
acting in the capacity of attorney
subsequently acquired possession of
the land for a mentioned considera
tion of S220. The complainants
aver that the amount paid could not
have exceeded SI (10. Kaulii has
since steadily refused to transfer the
property lo his client although tend
ered the full amount of S220. But
not only did Kaulii get possession of
tiic coveted premises but he seems
to have got hold of Keahi, who is
accordingly made a party to this
The prayer urges the propiicty of
(hanging the role of Kaulii fiom one
of ownership to one of trusteeship
in trust for benefit of Keahi and
Mahoc. On the 10th of December,
1.X81), Justice Preston filed his de
cree ordering the defendant Kaulii
within ten days lo convey the pro
perly lo plaintiffs on the payment
of S'20, it appearing th:t Keahi dis
claimed any interest therein. The
decree was appealed from to the
Supreme Court in banco mid con
firmed Feb. 10, 18JI0. Feb, 28,
1800, Mr. Kaulii came befoie the
Court on a charge of contempt in
refusing to execute the instrument
of conveyance. After various de
lays Mr. Kaulii was ordered to take
up his residence in Oaliu Jail till
such time as he evinced a willing
ness to comply with the terms of the
decree requiring him to convey his
title in disputed land to plaintiffs.
