The watering cart on the tiaui
ways track is likn the politician of
the period it lias loo good a de
livery and makes more than a toler
able modicum of mud.
The regal honois paid to the good
old giay poet Whittier on his 8-llh
birthday, described elsewhere in this
paper, are a beautiful illustration of
the fact that the nobility of genius
combined with active virtue is icco
nized in the great political republic
as emphatically as in the republic of
The wonderful discovery that the
eaith wobbles on its axis told in a
Boston despatch copied by the
Advertiser is not so very new. Un
less we are mistaken, it is in connec
tion with this discovery that Prof.
Marcuse has come to these Island-,
under the auspices of the German
Government, to take observations.
A description is clipped fiom a
Boston paper of a double deck elec
tric palace car for traflic between
that city and the Cambridge sub
urbs. Such a car on the Honolulu
streets would save several pairs of
animals at five o'clock and on holi
days. It is to be hoped the Hawai
ian Tramways Company will before
long act on the privilege of using
electricity as a motive power gi anted
by last Legislature.
A joint platform for the elections
is to be submitted lespcctively to the
Mechanics' Union and the Ilui Ka
laiaina this week. It is to be hoped
that it will be such a one as all well
wishers of the nation can unhesitat
ingly suppoit as a whole. Then, if
good men can be induced to stand
for the Legislature on a sound plat
form, there should be little ground
of apprehension that the countiy will
be left to the tender mercies of em
piiical and radical adventurers, to
whom government is but gain and
progress their own preferment.
It is reported that the rule home
time ago adopted by the Board of
Immigration stipulating that Japa
nese labor immigration should con
tain 25 percent of women has not
been observed in recruiting the im
migrants hourly expected by the
steamer Yamashiro Maru. Tho pre
ponderance of the male sex was
ground of one of the stiongest ob
jections to Chinese immigration, and
the people of this country will liaully
approve of a repetition of the evil iu
the case of Japanese. As the Japa
nese women havo been testified to by
planters themselves as profitable help
in both field and mill, there must be
other than economic reasons for the
alleged infraction of the rule men
tioned. The mongoose, that lively little an
imal imported to drive rats out of the
cane field, is rapidly becoming a for
midable pest. It has strayed into

rabbit plague in Australia and Cali
fornia bcfoie our eyes, we cannot af
ford to let tho mongoose nuisance
grow to the dimensions of a plague.
Theic is no need to put an anli-iuon-
goose clause in any election platform,
but the matter is serious enough to
engage the attention of the coining
The attention of the Minister of
Interior and Road Supervisor is call
ed to the present condition of the
Palama rond. There has been little
or no repairing made to it for several
years. A cantonicr has put in time
on the road for a year or so, and
accomplished nothing, his chief occu
pation seemingly being that of look
ing after private roadways leading
fiom the main road. Residents of
that poition of town who are com
pelled by citcumstances to foot it
have a hard time of it, there not
being even a footpath. The Tram
ways Co.'s track is the best, patt of
the road, and consequently drivers
of vehicles of every description drive
over that, forcing pedestrians to
wade and slide through the mud as
best they can. A strong complaint of
the condition of Union street is also
heard. It has been dug up by can
touicrs and left iu an almost impass
able state. Prompt and proper at
tention to all the unfinished bits of
thoroughfare throughout the city
would greatly popularize the street
" ONE SUMMER IN HAWAII."
The receipt of this book from the
Hawaiian News Co. has already been
bi icily acknowledged in litis pnper.
Mrs. Helen Mather, who visited the
Islands in the summer of 181)0, is
the author. Her publishers are the
Casscll Publishing Co. of New York.
They have got up an elegant book of
it, with cover of typical design, illus
trations of Hawaiian scenes clear as
the photographs from which some of
them are taken, heavy paper and
wide margins like the verandas of
Hawaii. The style of the author is
attractive with much of originality.
Here is one acute remark:
"In matters of diet, custom covets
a multitude of inconsistencies. We
niiike exclamation points with our
noses at the mention of poi, and yet
we take limbuigcr cheese to our
stomach with delight. We have a
feeling akin to disgust when told that
the natives cut slices from a delicate
little fish, season and eat them with
out being cooked ; and yet wo open
the two valves of an oyster and
swallow the delicious morsel, bones
Mrs. Mather's description of the
volcano although brief is very realis
tic, mirroring the impressions of al
most everybody who has gazed at
the fiery vortex in action. She
reaches this result, loo, without that
stiaining after effect which spoils
many attempts at word-picturing the
wonder of Hawaii, Tlieie arc some
mistakes in snellinir names such as
"Likiliki" for "Likelike," and
slips in facts such as saying the
King once owned the yacht Hawaii,
when it was the Healani that had thai
distinction. A hasty perusal of the
work, however, does not discover any
"bad breaks" that will hurt the
country. As the impressions of
a tourist who had a good time here,
mingling with zest in Honolulu
society, "One Summer iu Hawaii" is
likely to induce other swallows of
leisure to migiate hither, where thev
can get one summer iu lengths of
tin ce, six, nine or twelve months to
suit. One word of blame in closing,
however. Il is hardly the right
tiling for the author to use ex-Min-isler
Daggett's poem on "Waikiki"
without creditor quotation marks.
This suiely is an inadvertence.
Boston, December 17.-Alternately
laughing and talking, while tears of
joy filled his eyes, the beloved gray
poet, John Gieenleaf Whittier, stood
iu his parlor to-day receiving the
guests that poured in to congratulate
him on his eighty-fourth birthday.
The old gentleman was in unusually
good health, or this excitement would
not have been permitted by his physi
cians. Tho oppoitunity was well
taken advantage of and the bluest
blood in the old commonwealth min
gled with the poorest mill-hand to
tender to the poet earnest congratu
lations. Telegrams and presents
from all over the United States were
The room was jammed full of flow
ers. Tho Haverhill Board of Trade
sent a box of eighty-four roses, the
girls of La Salle Academy eighty-four
pinks in a box, and the students of
Wellesloy eighty-four hunches of vi
olets beautifully arranged. Prom
San Krancisco came a gold pin ; from
Winchester, Va., a paper-culler made
of the wood fiom old Fort Loudon,
built by Washington. An aid in full
uniform brought the congratulations
o( his Excellency the Governor. Har
vard and Yale sent their congratula
tions, beautifully expiessed, by a
special messenger. The Chambers
of Commerce of Boston, Portland,
New Haven, Lowell and Portsmouth
sent handsome presents. A delega
tion of students from Vassar, Woll
cslcy and La Salle wailed on the poet.
It took two hours to read the tele
grams received. The day was cold
but sunny, and everything seemed to
enter into the spirit of the occasion
