But established for the benefit of all,
TUESDAY, APRIL 2G, 1892.
No more space will be wasted here
after in wrangling with the Adver
tiser on matters not of particular
public interest. This journal is not
going into aty side issues, but sticks
to its original challenge, namely, for
an examination of the circulation of
each paper by any persons interested.
We say the Bulletin has, in round
numbers, four hundred copies greater
bona jiile circulation than the Adver
tiser. Our contemporary was ex
ceedingly foolish in provoking this
controversy, which has resulted in
exposing thoroughly its empty pre
tentions to superior popularity.
Some very interesting items are
obtainable from the Collector-General's
report for the year 1891.
The revenue derived from the
Customs in 1891 was the largest on
record. It was 8732,594.93, as
against SG95,95G.91 the previous
year, and 505,390.98 in 1882. The
smallest in the last ten years was that
of 1885, being 502,337.38. In the
event of "absolute free trade" with
tiic United States becoming a fact,
the national financiers would have to
face the pioblcm of replacing the
bulk of this revenue which would be
lost. The Collector-General notes an
increase of S1S74 on account of
wharfage, in spite of the loss of over
'$4000 which went to the railroad
The arrivals of passengers at Ho
nolulu for the year were 2436, and
the departures 1970, making an ex
cess of 4GG in arrivals over depar
tures. This does not look bad, but
probably since the end of the year
the outgo of people has increased.
Of the ordinary passenger arrivals
131 were Japanese, and of departures
G9 of that nationality, leaving a gain
of G2 in Japanese coming and going
as they please. Arrivals of immi
grants show 138G Chinese, of which
929 were males, 178 females and 279
children. There departed 1982 Chi
nese, of whom 29 were women and
88 children making a decrease of
that nationality of 59G. Japanese
immigration comprised 4498 men,
1535 women, and 8 children, a total
of G041. Japanese emigration con
sisted of G83 men, 178 women and
17 children, a total of 878. This
makes the increase 51G3, or, with the
G9 gain in ordinary passenger trafllc,
a grand total increase of 5232 Japan
ese. Portuguese migration gives the
result of a loss of 08 of that nation
ality to the country. The arrivals
of Portuguese were 10950 men, 23
women and 3G children, and depar
tures 177 73 men, 34 women and
70 children. Passengers in transit
were 4981. Our population has been
inci eased by 4149 immigrants and
4GG other foreigners, u total of 4915
persons, not 49G5 as the types make
the report say.
There is so much to be gleaned
from the statistics of imports and
exports that these branches of the
report may bo left for an article by
themselves. It may be noted now,
however, that "the quantity of sugar
exported during 1891 has increased
15,185,118 pounds over the same for
1890, while tho value for the total
amount exported has fallen off 82,
G09,017," This depreciation in the
couutry's greatest source of wealth
must have added to it, in order to
fully comprehend the changed situa
tion caused by the McKinley Act,
some proportion of the additional
expense involved in producing the
increase of sugar exports.
A traveling man who chanced to
be in the store of 15, V. Wood, at
McKces Rocks, Pa., says while he
was 'waiting to see Mr, Wood, a little
girl came in with an empty bottle la
beled Chamberlain's Pain Balm and
said : "Mamma wants another bot
tle of that medicine ; she says it is
tho beet medicine for rheumatism she
ever used." 50 cent bottles for sale

It is probable thai tho steamer
Beaver, now on the rocks in tlio.Nar
rows, Columbia River, will bo exhi
bited t the World's Fair in 1893.
Tho Beaver was the first steam vessel
to ply on the North Pacific Coast.
She was built by Bottom and Watt,
London. A brief history of the old
craft will doubtless be interesting to
the Bulletin's readers.
Sixty years have passed and a
generation has come and gone since
the Hudson Bay Company's steamer
Beaver floated down the river
Thames, through the British Channel
and out into the open trackless sea.
Rounding Cape Horn the Beaver was
on tho placid waters of the Pacific,
and anchored after a passage of 1G3
days at Astoria, then one of the
chief towns of tho Pacific Coast.
Built and equipped at a period
when the problem of steam naviga
tiou had only .begun to be solved, js
it any wonder that the little steamer
which was destined to traverse two
oceans one of them scarcely known
outside of books of travel was an
object of deep and engrossing inter
est from the day that her. keel was
flrst laid until the morning that she
passed out of sight amidst the en
couraging cheers of thousands gath
ered on either shore and the answer
ing salvos of her own guns, on a
lonn voyage to an unknown sea?
Titled men and women watched
the progress of construction. A
duchess broke the traditional bottle
of champagne over the bow and be
stowed the name she has ever since
proudly worn. The boilers and en
giues built by Bottom & Watt (the
latter a son of the great Watt) were
placed in their positions on board,
but it was not considered safe to
work them on the passage. So she
was rigged as a brig and came out
under sail. A bark accompanied her
as a convoy to assist in case of Occi
dent ; but the Beaver set all canvas,
ran out of sight of her protector, and
reached Columbia river 22 days
Captain Home was the name of
the first commander of the Beaver
and brought her out. One can well
imagine the feelings of pride with
which he bestrode the deck of his
brave little ship, which carried six
7-pounder guns. After reaching
Astoria the Beaver got up steam and
greatly astonished the residents by
her performances. She steamed up
to Nisqually, then the Hudson Bay
Company's chief station on the Paci
fic Coast. Here Capt. McNeil took
command of the Beaver, and Capt.
Home retiring to one of the Com
pany's posts on the Columbia River
perished in 1837 in Heath's rapids
by the upsetting of a boat.
From that period until the steamer
passed into the hands of the Imperial
Hydrographers, the history of the
Beaver was tho same as that of most
of the Company's trading vessels.
She ran north and south, east and
west, collecting furs and carrying
goods to aud from tho stations for
many years. Amongst her known
officers during that period were
Capts. Woods, Brukie, Scarborough,
Sangster, Rudlim and others, all of
whom have passed away long since.
It is believed that not a sin
gle person who came out in
tho Beaver is now alive. Nearly all
the Company's oflicers with a few
exceptions, who received her on her
arrival at the Columbia River, are
I have in my possession a small
photo, of the steamer Beaver. If
any of your readers would wish a
copy, it is at their service for en

WHERE DANCER LIES.
The Advertiser of April 23rd, has
the followirg: "The real dangers
which threaten American society are
not from imperialism, in either church
or state. They are from anarchy ;
from contempt of authority and im
patience at control ; from dema
gogues flatten ng democracy, enthron
ing its passions aud dethroning its
conscience; from greed. and appetite
rampant aud uncontrolled ; from the
tens of thousands of saloons, not
from the churches of any denomi
nation." The above over-drawn picture is
not "truth well stated" by any means,
l'heie is another side to that picture,
which the world knows by heart.
The following from a great jurist
the late Chief-Justice Chase lifts
the curtain and exposes the other
"The wicked men are not in the
penitentiary, they are in the
churches. The criminals we convict
are not wicked, they are simply
weak weak in character and weak
in intellect. The men from whom
society suffers are the cold, selfish,
calculating creatures who not only
keep clear of the courts, but seek the
churches, and deceive others as they
deceive themselves, and hope to de
ceive the Almighty."
I suppose the Christian Union
thinks it no sin for the great Trinity
Church of New Yoik City, with its
millions of dollars worth of untaxed
church property, collecting rents
from a part of those "tens of thou
sands of saloons," also from dis
reputable houses, which it does,
