TUKSDAY, MAY 27, 1890.
The tire in the Hell Telephone
tower, reported in another column,
and caused by the electric light
wites, is an illustration of the dan
ger attending our electric lighting
system, recently pointed out by the
I'm.ixTiN. The danger is always
present, but pre-eminently so in
rainy weather. Although the lire
h.i3 destroyed no costly, or even
cheap, building, the damage to
the Telephone Company's wires
is considerable, beside the great in
convenience to the many people who
are debarred telephonic communica
tion until repairs are effected. It
is to be hoped that the unfortunate
incident will have the fortunate
effect of directing the attention of the
authorities to the matter in such a
way as to produce immediate action
for the removal of the danger. Tlic
electric lights are an incalculable
boon, but not a boon that is desira
ble at so great a risk to life and pro
perly as now exists. Tlic public
interest demands that the danger be
removed or minimised with as little
delay as possible.
AMEND, NOT ABOLISH.
Abolitiou may be carried too far.
Zeal in abolishing what is bad or
useless is in danger of going to the
extreme of taking I lie good and use
ful along with it. Local experience
ha- veriiled this proposition, exam
ples ot which may be cited by every
rcllective reader of a few years re
sidence. An extreincht who would
abolish the election law enacted by
the last Legislature would be guilty
of demolishing good and evil to
gether. The main features of the law arc
good. Many countries which have
made the lest, testify to this fact.
Australia, its birth place, after a li iai
of considerably over twenty years,
declares it to be good. England and
other European eountiies, adopting
it more recently, give testimony to
the same effect. Canada is another
witness. Several of the Stales of
the American Union have lecently
made a trial of it, and they all speak
in praise. In short, the testimony
in favor of the lw wliieli this king
dom has adopted in part as its elec
tion law is overwhelming; ond then
is not such an enormous amount ol
wisdom concentrated right here on
ihesc islands as to qualify us to in
otriict. in such matters the countries
named. We. may be peifoctly satis
tied from the vast amount ol testi
mony of many countries that the
law, on the whole, is good; and is as
good for us as for them, when
adapted to our peculiar conditions.
It is not abolition of the law that
is needed, but amendment. First
and foieiuost, the clause providing
for absolutely secret voting, ex
punged by the last Legislature,
thould be restored by the present
Assembly. Then there arc numer
ous minor changes required to adapt
the Act to local conditions. .Many
of the members of the House have
made a special study of the law as
it now is, and tralclicri carefully its
workings al the Inst election. These
gentlemen arc as sensible of itH de
fects ns of its good pails, and as h
result of their study and observa
tion wc expect to sec the present
election law emerge in an amended
form that will more to the satisfac
tion of the "free and independent"
AH OPEN LETTER TO THE MINIS
TER OF FIHAHCE.
KXCI. 1.1.1 Nl'V
s. M. Damon,
i.t it, 11. 1.
Sin : lu the interest of honesty,
fair dealing and incidentally of the
Uritish and American stockholders
of tin- Hawaiian l'acilic Cable Com
pany, permit me to address you In
this public manner. It is stated in
a newspaper of tins oily that "the
management of thi company has
lately attempted to reach the draw
ing of the first installment" of the
Government subsidy of S2.",000.
This statement was a surprise lo
myself and led to a prompt investi
gation. I'lider the llarlhnlomow
Act of July 2, l.SSK, no money can
be drawn Irom the llawaiiau treas
ury until the telegraph lines and
cables are "in good working condi
tion bctweeu Honolulu and Wai
luku," which lias not yet been ac
complished, although the mainland
lines across Oahu, Molokai and
Maui with about fifty-five miles of
auxiliary land lines are nearly com
pleted. One type of the cable has
proved to be defective, communica
tion between Honolulu and Wniluku
cannot yet be bad, the Government
subsidy is of course unearned, and
speaking strictly for the llritish and
American stockholders no attempt
at any time has been made to obtain
the money which to the best of my
knowledge still remains in the t!o
On the part of a few of the resi
dent stockholder it is discovered
that a most unsatisloctory and in
consistent state of affairs exists. A
local firm of merchants, on or about
.September l"i, 1KS!, voluntatily be
came the agents for the cable com
pany at Honoli.lu, no guaranty was
asked of this Honolulu firm, an
omission on the part of the cable
company which was overlooked by
myself in tlic huriy ol construction
work. At a subsequent date, as
stated to myself by an ollicial of the
interior Depaitineut, a prominent
member of this firm of the cable
company's agents appeared at the
Government building armed with
a power or attorney tiom the New
York constructors of the rejected
cable, and claimed the first instal
ment of 8,000, which demand was
of course properly denied. An act
of this kind, while entirely un
authorized by myself, and carefully
guarded against on my part in the
contract, still being of Hie nature ol
a claim against tiie cable company,
was directly prejudicial to our in
terests, anil it was this hostile act
(to use a very mild term), which
becoming known and commented
upon, lias undoubtedly given rise to
the newspaper criticism reform! to.
Just why the cable company s
agents should accept a power of
attorney to press a claim against
the company remains to be ascer
tained. No money has been asked
for from Government by myself or
by the foreign stockholders ot the
cable company, nor can any be ask
ed for under the terms ot tlic Gov
ernment contract until the Minister
of the Interior can go to the Hono
lulu telegraph otliec and satisfy him
self that ho'can do business satis
factory over the lines to M'uiliiku.
The newspaper strictures are certain
ly well grounded, under the ciicuin
stancco, and this letter i made an
open one in order to forestall or
removo any annoyance which might
be indicted upon tlic Departments
of Finance and the interior, should
such reports remain uncontradicted
by authority from absent and inno
cent stockholders. 1 am, honored
