GLOATING OVER ACCIDENT.
Editor 13i'i.u:tin :
In my opinion it is not the dut' of
a newspaper to misstate facts, nor to
lind jocular matter in a painful acci
dent. If the Advertiser is edited and
managed upon the plan of the Texas
Siftings, Punch, or some other humo
rous journal there might exist some
excuse for such an article as the one
which appeared iu this morning's is
sue, headed "They Paled," even
then it would be very bad taste, and
display the employment of a too
decidedly "fresh" repoi tonal staff.
The truth of tho occurrence is
this, Mr. J. W. liipikanc and several
friends were having their usual tar
get practice last Sunday. During
the ilring a native man accidentally
had one of his linger wounded. The
finger was seveiely maugled but not
severed. Thereupon this native man
evinced more indilfcreuce to pain, as
well as courage, than, in 1113' belief,
could exist in a half a dozen of the
samo kidney as tlfe author of the
Advertiser's article, by whipping out
a jack-knife and completely severing
the injured member.
As to tho fainting, etc., 1 will
simply state that one of tho Adver
tiser's reporters is either in a trance,
or is a well developed case of idiocy.
Uy publishing the alnve stalemei t '
you will be doing justice to parlies
whom the Advci User's reporter at
tempted to use as a butt for a silly
joke, but ignominious!)' failed.

the feats were in view of the specta

NEW MAP OF HONOLULU.
Mr. C. V. E. Dove, surveyor, has
completed the draft of his map of
Honolulu for the new Directory now
under way. It is neatly ami cleanly
executed, showing streets plainly.
The two daily newspaper olliccs arc
shown, as well as Mr. Dove's own
ollice. New streets made since the
last previous map of the city was is
sued are put down, so that the work
will pjove a valuable convenience for
business men. Theie is to be an

renin nntl AKnltmt the Honolulu
Saturday's game was the biggest
surprise party tho Honolulu club lias
yet had. The giants had been prac
ticing for days, not for the Crescents
but their old antagonists the Kame
hatnohas, whom they meet next Sat
urday. They felt that their game
with tho kids would be a walk-over
but this idea was very soou dis
pelled. Angus stayed through the nine
innings and " pitched the ball in a
way that deceived the champions,
aud In his good work in the box he
was ably supported by every mem
ber of the nine. Hart, Wilder and
Irishman in the diamond played well
and Holt at left field did excellent
Jimmy Lemon pitched a winning
game but the support from the other
players was vile with the exception
perhaps of the assistance rendered
by Willie Lucas at right field.
The attendance was not as large
as was expected owing to many per
sons being called upon at other

An Eminently Consemtive and Safe Company,
The consideration of first importance in judging of the condition of
any llpaiicial institution (and notably of a life assurance company, the ma
jority of whose contracts extend over long periods of years) is its stirjjits
strength. The Equitable has, over and above all liabilities, a laiger sur
plus than any other assurance company.

This Surplus remains after making provision for every obligation, on a
rigid calculation of Liabilities based on the standard preset ibed by the In

addition to this, in a spirit of conservatism, the Directors of the Society,
on the iccoinmendation of its Finance Committee, have sot aside a Special
