There is more sense than every
body is willing to admit, in the Ad
vertiser's disapproval of two tele
phone companies and two ice com
panies for so small a town as Hono
lulu, especially in the matter of
telephones. Wo go further still,
and object to so many newspapers!

The Fire Maishal, Mr. J. C.
White, often experiences difllculty
in the execution of his various du
ties because of deficient legislation.
It will he for the coming session of
the Legislature to use its best en
deavors to supply wants in this
regard. Mr. White as a man of
intelligence as well as experience
can he of great service in furnishing
suggestions as to what is needed.
In connection with the Supreme
Court decision in the case of Chung
Vaa, the following extract from the
"Sydney Morning Herald's" tele
graphic correspondence of January
1, 1S90, may he interesting: "A
family of three Chinese, the father,
mother, and a little girl, arrived by
the S.S. Changsha in the bay yester
day evening. Accouling to the
Chinese Exclusion Act no ship is
allowed to bring more than one Chi
nese for every oOO tons legistcr. In
admitting tins family the Act has
not been violated, as the registered
tonnage of the Changsha is MG3.
The tide inspector at Willianntown
explains that the parents lived in
Victoria previously, and were natu
ralised, and therefore would be ex
A letter from Mr. W. II. Castle
to the Labor Convention, published
in the Advcitiscr of the 27lh in
stant, contains a bit of interesting
information hitherto not generally
known. He says, "If we" (Oahu
Hallway and Land Co.) "can also
ohtain certain concessions, which
we propose to ask of the next Legis
lature, we shall then go ahead and
build a railway from Hiio to Ilania-
kua," etc. Mr. Castle does not in
timate the nature or extent of the
concessions to he asked, nor was the
labor convention meeting the time
or occasion to do so. The proposed
railway scheme alluded to is the
same as was projected by the late
S. G. "Wilder. Any reasonable con
cessions that may he asked of the
Legislature will probahly ho granted
by that body, and it is to he ear
nestly hoped that the railway will he
A largo amount of talk, some of
which lias even found its way into
print, has been perpetrated in this
community during the last month or
two, which assumes that the country
is in a condition of meat dearth of
material from which to construct
Ministerial Cahincts. Such asser
tions and questions as these hao
Hooted through the muggy air, and
arc still agitating the political and
social atmosphere: "The piesont
Administiation is the best the coun
try ever had. No other Cabinet
could do so well. The Government
is clean, honest, and capable. What
other four men could fill the posi
tions so well ? If the Ministers were
to go out, who else could you put
in? Where arc the men to fill their
Talk of this description may
merely represent the prejudiced but
sincere convictions of a few cx
tremely narrow minds; or it may
also indicate the sentiments of a
few others whose self-interest and
pecuniary profit lie in that direction ;
or it may be all ycry wise and true.
At any rale, a large proportion,
perhaps a large majority, of the
community regard all such talk as
mere idle words, as the passing wind
to whicli they pay no heed.
It will undoubtedly be conceded
by all classes and all shades of po
litical belief that this little kingdom
of eighty or ninety thousand souls
docs not swarm with Hismaicks,
Beaconsflclds, Cavours, Gladstones,
and Websters, nor with Judds, Wy
lics, and Ilutchinsons. Indeed, it
would be hard to find anyone out
side of the Insane Asylum willing to
admit that either of these gentle
men, or the diplomatic counterpart
of cither of them, is at the present
time domiciled on the islands. Nut
there are scores not yet in the Luna
tic Asylum, nor likely to get there,
who believe that all the brains and
executive ability of the country, or
cvch the best available of those com
modities, are not concentrated in
Government House. In fact, it is
quite a common opinion that as good
a ministry as the one we have may
be readily picked up, and those who
favor a change and they arc num
erous do so witli the confident be
lief that a better can be had. Those
who "hold the fort" arc no doubt
very nice gentlemen, but they arc
not indispensable. Wo may get too
much of a good thing. Good or
otherwise, many taxpayers seem to
think that if the whole boiling
evaporated the general happiness
would remain singularly unimpaired.

A tall man w ilh a dark moustache
and imperial got into a south-bound
11 road way car at Twenty-second
street, and took a scat about mid
way up the c:ir. When the conduc
tor came for his fare the man fished
a nickel from his pocket. The con
ductor looked at the coin sharply
and passed it back again.
"What's the matter''"' asked the
"It's plugged," said the con
ductor. The man nut a pair of eyeglasses
on his nose and critically surveyed
the nickel. He found that the con
ductor was correct, and handed him
a good nickel. He was about to put
the bad one in his pocket, when he
noticed that every one in the car
was looking at him. He turned red,
hesitated, and finally dropped the
nickel slyly on the tloor. Every one
saw him do it, but every one tiied
to appear as if he didn't notice it.
The nickel lay on the iloor in plain
sight, but no one would look at it.
All seemed to think that they would
appear as if they coveted it if
they did. Kvciy one seemed quite
uncomfortable. Two or three men
tried to read, but they couldn't con
cenliatc their attention on their
newspapers. The conductor passed
over the nickel once or twice, and
tried not to notice it.
At Fouiteenth stieetaman got
in and was about to sit down, when
he espied the nickel. He picked it
up and tried to hand it to an old
gentleman with a red face and a
white mustache, saying: "You
dropped this, sir."
"No, L didn't," said the old gen
tleman, with a laugh.
Then everybody laughed, as if
greatly relieved. The man who had
picked up the nickel, looked closely
at it, turned a blight crimson and
dropped it again. Kerybody saw
him, hut whichever way he looked
he saw only averted faces. The
people would glance slyly at him
fiom the comers of their eyes
and then look away again very
quickly. Again, no one looked at
the nickel, although every man there
knew to a nicety just where it lay.
It staid in the same place on the
lloor until the car stopped just above
Chambers street. Hero the conduc
tor told the passengers to take the
next ear, as that one was going to
switch off and go up town again.
As they left the car all the passen
gers took a last glance at the plug
ged nickel, but no one touched it.
it slaited up town again and all the
passengers went down town witli
that nickel weighing heavily on their

Fire Maishal chanced to be passing
ul the time that the result began to
appear in the form of smoke and

vented possible serious consequences.
Let this little occurrence teach
smokers that it is not safe to throw
lighted cigar or cigarette ends into
inflammable substances cither on
the streets or anywhere elso. At
the samo time it may bo suggested
that rubbish containers are in the
habit of occupying too much of the
sidewalks for too long periods.

Judge Uickerton to-day Hied his
decision in the case of Mary C.
Bcckley vs. George Lucas and
others, bill in equity for specific
perfoi mance. The principal defend
ant, as executor and trustee under
the will of Margaret Kccijan, refused
to convey certain premises on Nuu-
anu street according to a covenant
made by testator with her adopted
daughter, Mary Kisely (the maiden
name of the plaintiff). One reason
of refusal was that complainant had
violated the covenant thiough dis
obedience and desertion. The Court
finds no evidence of this. Another
and the main point presented by de
fendants' counsel was that the pre
mises arc not so fully and clearly
described as to enable the Couit to
decree snecilic performance. The
description in the covenant, dated
September 11, 1871, is that of "a
piece of land situated in Honolulu
and fronting upon Niiuanu street,
together witli the cottage thereon
now in the occupation of Mr.
There was evidence that a Mr.
Smith who was engaged in the ice
business did live in a cottage be
longing to Mrs. Keegau. Iiobcrl
Grieve testified that Mrs. Kcegan
told him that those premises weie
mentioned in the adoption papers as
the consideration, being the cottage
at the time of her death and now
occupied by J. II. Hare, The
doctrine adopted by the Court is as
