man to whom nature has been very
unkind by endowing htm wltw a l
very small mind, or whose education
ha been acquired in a very poor
school. There is quite a number of

Tim late "l'reinici," perhaps
foolishly, originated the policy of
"Hawaii for the Hawaiian," and

wisely, "liovernment of the people,

DNGER OF ELECTRIC LIGHTING.
Fleet lie lighting with us is young.
Hitherto we have experienced none,
or but little, of the mNchiel which
may icsult therefrom. Vo have,
however, experienced enough to
teich' 115 that there is a danger of
electric lighting proving to be
something beside- a benefit. An
electric light wiie coming in contact
with a telephone win has de-troyed
a telephone, instrument, and came
near to setting abla.i the hoiiao in
which the instiument was placed.
Several instances have occuired of
electric light wires coining in con
tact with tiees and oilier substances,
and causing insignificant (lies. Tri
lling as these ca-es may have been
in their results, they should seno to
warn us of the constant presence of
the danger of greater evil.
American experiences have lur
nished a laigo number of cases of
the ever-present danger. Upwards
of a hundred death-, in the city of
New York alone, andnnuieious liie.
havo abundantly illustrated the se
rious risks of having imperfectly. in
sulated electric light wire- about.
One case is recoided in which
