The casual observer 13 already
struck with tho marked improve
ment in street lighting. No citizen
could fail to bo. When tlio Govern
ment put Mr. John Cassidy in
charge of our dilapidated Electric
Light plant they put the right man
in the right place ; but at the same
time they gave him n difllcnlt task
to perform. That Mr. Cassidy, in
a short tune, has done much in
straightening out tho mismanage
ment of his predecessors, his work
ahcaily shows. The intermittent,
dim, uncertain flickering of tho par
tial number of street lights kept
burning by tho late management has
been replaced by a steady, brilli
ant, all-night burning of the entire
street lighting system. This much
all can see ; but only those who have
personally followed the investiga
tion and renovation of the system,
under Mr. Cassicby's direction, are
fully aware of the gross and deliber
ate mismanagement, the pig-headed
ignorance and the oflicial incom
petency, which have characterized
our unfortunate Electric Light Sys
tem from its extravagant installa
tion to its actual breakdown in the
bungling hands of the late Adminis
tiation. When all the facts are out
there will be much of public scorn
and indignation and little of person
al pit3r. It is not unlikely that al
most that every man connected wit.li
thcollleial control,or inteiestedin the
furnishing by contract thereof, will
speedily find himself cooling his al
leged patriotic enthusiasm under the
shade of personal disgrace.
The Anglican Church Chronicle

tice of Mr. Allen Hutchinson's last
We nan the great pleasure of a
visit to the studio of Mr. Allen
Hutchinson, the talented sculptor-
where we saw an excellent bust of
King Lunalilo, which has formed the
study of the artist for some time
past. The profile is perfect and the
features are wonderful. I lie ex
pression is that which the King wore
on his return from Hawaii, shortly
before his death. The Trustees of

We cordially agree with tho Rev.
Editor's sentiments. The Lunalilo
Home, or the Government, will do
well to secure such a work.
Some disgruntled politician is try
ing to make capital in the Adver
tiser columns out of the repairing
of the Government tug. The other
day he complained of mechanics re
ceiving five dollars and a half a day
on this Government job, and yet
signed himself as a "Mechanic!"
Queer mechanic that, who either
thinks that mechanics should take
less on Government work than they
command on other work, or else
that Government work should be
done by scrub mechanics who can
not command the wages of first-class
men. This disguised patriot "as
serts" that the work on the tug
could have been dono as well by
contract as by the day. He is
hereby challenged to get any respon
sible mechanic competent to direct
the job to put his name to such an
assertion. The Marino Railway
lessees are the only ones having the
plant to do the woik in the most
economical way and they would
have ignored any call for tendeis.
Moreover, if the work was done on
specifications drnwn up without the
knowledge only obtainable when the
vessel was opened up, there is not
the slightest doubt that the tug
would have had to bo laid up again
within a few months. The term
"hurricane deck" va9 the report
er's and doubtless was intelligible
to every reader excepting the crauk
who la writing to the Advertisor,
while the term "shear timber" that
is also snorted at is one that compe
tent critics would not question. It
is a 'Kaimiloa botch" that the
writer in question wants, which
would have innde more work for
cheap caipeuters in thu near future.
The Government has made a wise
deviation from the contract system
in giving this woilc to honest uud
triistnoilhy hands. Tho linn that

THE PUNCHDDWl WATER SUPPLY.
A Hiitiurltnn Itomntirr.
This is the story of a wedding
winch didn't come off, and of two
loving hearts that wore trodden un
deifoot by tho hoof of calamity.
One of the parties to the transaction
resided on New Madeira, Punch
bowl ; an elevated suburb with an
intermittent watur supply, where 17
"houses arc supplied by a half-inch
pipe with taps that run by tits and
starts with intervals between, when
the lit is over and the start hasn't
begun. Consequently when the Now
Madeira man wants a bath ho sim
ply escapes out of his clothes and
sits down under the tap and waits.
When he has waited till he is dead
tired, and not a single diop has
come, he gets into his clothes again
and clears out, leaving the tap tinn
ed on by mistake, and when he is
gone the delusive lluid comes with a
rush and Hoods the house, and stops
limning just ten minutes before he
gets back aud there is no water
again for 17 hours. It was this lo
cal peculiarity which broke up tho
two lovers alluded -to, and scattered
their hopes like a glass eye struck
by dynamite. The bridegroom was
a stranger in the land, and on his
wedding morning ho roso up early
and climbed under the shower bath.
He turned the writer on just enough
to make him rcasonablj' damp, and
then ho turned it off again and
smothered himself from head to foot
in soap. When he could hold no
more, soap ho turned it on once
more or tried to do so, but there
was no water there.
He got one eye open with dilll
cultj' and inspected the pipes, but
the soap got into it and he closed it
hurriedly. In his ignorance ho fonly
imagined that tho refreshing lluid
would come back in a few seconds,
so he sat on the edge of the bath to
wait. He kept on waiting. An hour
passed slowly and the soap had dried
on him and he grew wild and began
to denounce the loss of the water
system and the government as a
gathcrim of hogs, dogs and devils,
but no good results followed. He
also began to get cramped, so he
spent the icst of the hour sitting on
the tloor, and using language which
would make his best girl's hair run
cold aud her blood stand on end,
and then he crawled back to his bed
room kicking his clothes in front of
him, and tried vainly to get the soap
off with the hat brush. Next he
attempted to remove it with cod
liver oil, and when that scheme fell
through also there were no more
available liquids left but ink and
mucilage. At this stage he lay
down and held on to tile floor, -else
he would have blown the roof off
with an explosion of sentiment, and
lest he might do some damage ho
hid under the bed and ctirscd in
wardly. The mattrasses and other
fixings helped to muflle exterior
sounds, so he staid under the bed
for two hours and a half before it
btruck him that there was a dull
sound of rushing water somewhere,
hut when he fled back to the bath
loom he found that though the wa
ter had evidently been running for
thirty minutes or so, it had just
stopped again, and he was in lime
to catch the last diop on the top of
his head and that was all.
Human endurance gave out at
this point and lie ejaculated 28 or
29 times louder than before. Na
turally enough this brought 7 women
and 13 dogs all asking him through
the keyhole what was the matter,
hut when he bade them go away be
cuube he had nothing on except one
drop of water on his head, they set
it down to drink. It was about four
o'clock in the afternoon when the
bride's brother came along with
thunder in his eye and a stick m his
hand to demand why he had not turn
ed up at the altar, and when be tried
the bedroom door he found it lock
ed. Then he demanded admittance,
and in response there arose within
the hoarse, idiotic shriek of a dry
maniac covered with soap. The
sufferer's reason had given way be
neath the strain, and he had emptied
the mucilage and the ink over
his head and then got under tho
bed. Ho was dragged out with dilll
culty and removed to the asylum
where he has a shower -hath every
morning without soap, but his case
is generally regarded as hopeless.
There is a settled gloom upon his
soul and the spark of intelligence
has lied forever. IIydiioi'iioiiia.
THE EHCLISH LEVEE.
In Saturday's Advertiser I see u
paragraph in which it is said Her
Majesty the Queen of England was
offended on account of the Prince
of Wales paying duo respects to a

been to a eonsidciable number of

and in all the lists of tho leveo you
will never find that a lady was ever
