II happens well that there is to be
a scries of independent cnteilain
ments by local talent while the Eas
tern tourists are here. They will
not only have the diversion to help
their stay pass uieirily, hut the
native music especially will be
material to help Honolulu's fame
abroad, in their recital of theii tour's
Next to improved treaty relations
and the cable, there is no subject
coming before Congress of more in
tcicst to Hawaii than the Nicaragua
Canal. In the news of this issue
will be found a strong argument in
bchalfof the work as an aid to United
States commerce. Such arguments
ought to tell on the action of Con
gress. Balancing all diverse accounts
of the progress of the woik it is
clear that, unless the United States
as a nation take hold, the great pro
ject will be abandoned.
The Chinese highbinders' organ
ization, declared in evidence befoie
the Police Court to have been ef
fected, is an unwelcome addition to
local institutions. It is a society
that has caused much crime and cost
to San Francisco, and in that city J
proved impossible to eradicate. If
it is not to grow to serious dimen
sions here, it must be hunted to
eailh in its infancy. Of couise theie
have been dangerous secret societies
among the Chinese here, but one
deemed worthy of especial exposure
by a Chinese witness is likely to be
the real article.
THE KONA CASE.
The Advertiser hastily assumes
that the hundred voters in North
Komi weie disfianchised as to the
Road Board because of u lack of bal
lots. Nothing of the kind was ihe
cause. They lost their votes because
they were registered in a different
precinct from those in which they
were legally directed to vote for Road
Board. If there is any blame at
taching to the Minister, it is in not
directing Inspectors of the interme
diate piecinct (thiid), lying across
the border of both taxation districts,
to furnibh the Inspectors of other
precincts with lists of qualified voters
from that precinct who should vote
in those other ones. It is not clear,
however, that the Minister could re
quire Inspectors to do more than the
law imposes on them. The third
precinct polling place was set apiut,
in strict conformity with the law, as
a voting place for the Road Board of
South Komi, and, if there had been
u contest there, it would have been
absurd to have hud voting going on
in tho same place for the North Konu
Road Board. For just &uch a case
of taxation and election distiiets not
corresponding, the Road Board law
prescribes what the Minister is to do,
He did it.
p ' irrigation purposus
In connection with the reported
i1' sudden departure of a young man
d from the country, leaving laige lia
y bilities behind him, it is said that he
Jt'liad been an inveterate gambler. If
half the current reports urc true the
gambling mania is working fearful
havoc with the morals ami manners
of not only young men but mere
youths in this community. There
said to bo several gaming resorts
ig a rushing business right in the
heart of tho town, where young men
ng positions of trust in business
houses nightly win or lose large
amounts. While this is going on'
amidst tho "gilded youth," it is
notorious that chc fa gaming joints,
more than could bo easily num
bered, arc playing ducks and drakes
with the earnings of workingmen,
foreigners as well as natives but
especially the susceptible llawaiians.
It is high time that tho authorities
rose to the occasion and grappled
with this monstrously growing evil
with a dexterous and resolute hand,
and rescue the infatuated devotees
of Dame Chance from the irretrieva
ble ruin of all their prospects. If
existing laws are unavailing to root
out the curse, let the defects bo re
medied at the approaching session of
the Legislature. There is certainly
law enough to enable the police to
scare the gamesters out of the bold
and comfortable security they are
KICK ABOUT NEWSPAPERS.
Should space permit kindly insert
the following kick about the use and
abuse of newspapers. Being a sub
sol iber to the Bulletin and other
Honolulu papers through Honolulu
agencies, wc look foiward to the ar
rival of our coast steamers with much
interest, being isolated as wc arc
from Honolulu, the center of news.
Upon opening our packages we fiud
several dates shoit and some wc have
had before, but by borrowing and
lending amongst our neighbors we
manage to fill up dates. This is in
convenient and not what we sub
scribed for, and it is just the same
with foreign papers, which letters of
complaint to the parties interested do
not correct. 1 thought to remedy the
matter by subscribing direct to the
publishers, but my faith in them was
severely shaken by the following
incident some lime ago. The writ
er subscribed to two native pa
pers, which were afterwards sold
and consolidated into one. At
the time of change the new owner
made a large, rich and juicy promise
to the effect that subscribers to the
two old papqrs would have a two
years' subscription to the one new
one. But alas I with the end of the
year we saw the end of our subscrip
tions. I suppose it would not ruin
any of us to subsciibe again were we
so inclined, but there are many poor
natives who can ill afford to' throw
their money away, or I might say sec
themselves robbed of it. I doubt
that we are the only district that is
inconvenienced by such lack of sys
tem and breach of faith between
the newspapers and their supporters.
These few words on the subject may
arouse some other sufferers to air
their grievances, and by means of a
I few public letters accomplish more
for the benefit of subsciibers than a
bag full of private ones would do.
