THURSDAY, MAY 12, 1892.
It is a shame that the scanty for
ests we have should lie depleted so
often by lires, which must be the le
sult of cither carelessness or mali
cious mischief. There should be a
standing reward for information that
would secure the conviction of any
person starting fires in the forests.
The motive given by a European
newsmonger for the campaign of
France against Dahomey is certainly
not a lofty one. Yet if France ex
tinguishes forever the power of the
despotic monarch of Dahomey to
slaughter his innocent and inoffensive
subjects by the thousand, the mean
motive of ''buried bullion" will soon
be forgotten and tho depredators be
lauded as benefactors' of humanity.
A striking incident in the rapid
settlement of the "wild and wooly
west" is the mad rush for town lots
and homesteads on the openine of
the Cheyenne and Arapahoe reserva
tion described in our news columns.
It would appear that all regulations
pioviding for the rule of "first come
first served" on regular application
are futile, leaving the race for the
swift and the battle for the strong.
Perhaps none but the swift and the
stiong should enter such a fierce
struggle. It will not be long, how
ever, till the disorder will be over,
and the day of the unscrupulous
speculator be ended, both to be. suc
ceeded by communities of industrious
cullivalois and tradesmen, adding
valuable material to the building up
of the great American Common
A PARADISE FOR PRINTERS.
This day, Hay, 12 is appointed
for the dedication of the Childs
Drexel Home for Union Printers, at
Colorado Springs, Colorado. The
members of Honolulu Typographical
Union have lecejved an invitation to
he present. The invitation is on a
page of an aitistic pamphlet, which
contains pictures of the Home and of
Messrs. Child and Drexcl, its found
ers, also the order of dedicatory ex
ercises, list of olllcers and ini tubers
of the International Typographical
Union, committees on the ceremony,
etc. The building is of handsome
architecture, with towers and pinna
cles, having three stories besides
basement and attic. George W.
Uliilds, proprietor of the Philadelphia
Public Ledger, one of the most suc
cessful newspapers of the age, is one
of the best known and esteemed
men in the United States, and an in
timate friend not only of the great
men of his own country but of many of
the distinguished personages of Eu
rope. His benevolence is proverbial
and his kindly sympathy with working
printers has madu his name a house
hold word among members of the
ci aft. This great benefaction of a
home for wonidowu printeis at the
famous health resort of Colorado
Springs, in the giving of which Mr.
Childs divides the honor with his
friend Mr. Drexcl, the great banker,
Is only one of m.iny practical exhibi
tions of the great journalist's bene
volence, but it Is among the noblest
of all his kindnesses to the woikers
in the art preservative of all arts,
A few items from the pago of
"Notes" hi the invitation pamphlet
may be interesting to more than
printers: "The building is 144 feet
by 40, with a wing 20 feet. From
the base course to the fiuiala ou the
.roof tho distance ii 70 feet. Tho
ornament on Ihc summit of tho
squnrc tower is 105 feet from tho
ground. There arc 63 rooms in the
building. One room has space stifll
cicnt to accommodate 200 frames,
but, for composing to sleep would ac
commodate .100 weary compositors.
The library will contain a History of
Printing, published In London 120
years ago. Pike's Peak in plain
view. Toilet and bath rooms on
every floor. The Childs' parlor will
have a $1000 oil painting. The walls
are lavn and red sandstone. A para
dise for printers." Blessings on tho
men who have so thoughtfully pro
vided a home of health for the toilers
with the types, is a seutiment that
will he echoed not only by printers
but by all people of benevolent feel-
AN UNWORTHY VIEW.
"It Is well understood by fair
minded business men that local en
terprises are dependeut on the news
paper, while the newspaper is, to a
certain extent, dependent on local
enterprises. When the enterprise
ignores the newspaper the newspaper
must retaliate in kind."
Most of the publishing houses in
Honolulu have very complete job
printing departments attached to
their otllces. Instead of the busi
ness linns having their stationery
printed at home, thus affording em
ployment to more or less skilled
labor, keeping the money in circula
tion here, and also helping to pay
the heavy expenses incurred in the
conduct of a daily issue, it is the
rule, rather than the exception, to
place their orders abroad. Hardly
a single business firm here has its
work done at home. Most of it is
sent to the Coast and some even to
New York. What a howl there would
be if the laboring classes should
form a co-operative association and
buy their groceries, clothing, boots,
shoes and other necessities of life in
San Francisco! How these same
gentlemen who never patronize home
industries, unless they are compelled
to, would rise up in their wrath and
howl against such a proceeding?
These same firms, however, are more
or less oependent on the workingman
for support, and if the money which
be might earn and would spend in
the country is sent abroad, he will
sooner or later have to follow it.
Now that the prosperity of the coun
try is at a low ebb, it behooves the
business portion of the community
to think twice before sending any
money abroad, particularly for any
thing that can be done fully or nearly
as well at home. "The laborer is
worthy of his hire."

An accident happened this morn

near the P. M. S. S. dock. A num

Peck has been engaged for the past
few days in conveying coal from dis
charging vessels to the coul pile near
the P. M. S. S. wharf. This morn
a half-white named Ncki as usual

a distance of some twenty feet. He
backed his cart up in order to (lis

the horse, being a little fresh., went
too far with the result that driver,
horse and cart went over the embank

the fall he sprained his leg, and was
taken home. The horse escaped with
hut few scratches, while tie vehicle
was smashed. No blame Is attached
to tho driver. The accident is attri

A native printer named Kalaau,
working on Ka Leo newspaper, was

The car was coming down Nuuanu

in the act of depositing his fare in

London, April 18 Tho Globe
publishes a letter fio R correspond
ent who, the paper sa.yst is cll jn'
formed as to the Twitter upon which
ho writes, giving an explanation of
the preparations -now belug made by
France for war upon Daho incy. The
letter does not bear out the seml
ofllcial statements that Franco has
no intention whatever of conducting
military operations in the iutei'lor of
Dahomey, confining herself bolsly to
defending the possessions in the
Bight of Benin, Porto Novo and
The correspondent says it is be
lieved on good grounds that immense
treasure, the accumulation of upward
of two centuries. Is burled m Att
orney, the capital of Dahomey. Al
lowing largely for exaggerations,
this treasure, the writer declares, is
said to be worth a sum equivalent to
500,000,000 francs. It is known the
successive kings of Dahomey have
buried vast quantities of bullion
within the precincts of the palace
in a number of large pits, 10 or more
of which are said to contain gold and
silver to the amount of several mil
lions of francs each.
Authentic reports of the existence
of this treasure reached the French
through missionaries and traders,
and this readily accounts lor the
eagerness displayed by the French
to capture Aboiney. The attempt,
the conespondent says, has been
postponed for various reasons, but
now that the French Senate and
Chamber of Deputies have voted a
credit for the purpose, preparations
are to be made in earnest for the
inarch on Dahomey.
The French Parliament a few days
ago voted over 3,000,000 for the pur
pose of sending re-enforcements to
Porto Novo, and orders Have been
issued by the Minister of Marine for
the French cruiser at Montevideo to
at once proceed to the Gold Coast
and join the warship alieady there.
Troops are ordered to proceed fiom
St. Louis, Senegal, to re-enforce the
garrison at Porto Novo, and much
activity is displayed in military cir
cleo. An air of probability is given the
Globe correspondent's statement by
the fact that although King Behanzin
and his forces, who were said to be
threatening the French settlements,
had withdrawn northward, there was
no cessation of military prcpaialious,
and the3r are now being pushed tor
ward with all possible speed.
It may be the French imagination
has been excited by the stories of
vast treasures in Dahomey's capital
and under pretense of punishing
King Behanz.in for his many crimes
against civilization, particularly ids
slave-hunting raids, France will seize
upon it and, at the same time, cut
short the career of an absolute des
pot, whose murders of helpless vic
tims cry aloud for vengeance
Dahomey is , a savage kingdom on
