WEDNESDAY, AUG. 22. 1894
There is a suspicious look about
the feverish hasto with which tbo
Advertiser would havo railway fran
chises legislated. It distiuctly shows
distrust of a Legislature to be elect
ed by the people oven the people
even times rofiued in the oligarchic
furnace and tried by tho firo of test
oaths. Tho anticipation that tho
lower house, if controlled by native.",
would opposo liberal measures of
progress is a slander on tho natives.
Native members of past Legislatures
were quite in tho front rank when it
came to encouraging uiodoru Im
provements. It was tho reputedly
wealthiest and wisest foreign mem
bers who made a determined fight
asainst the schools, tho electric
light that turned Honolulu's gloom
into glory, aud other tilings that
marked steady progress under the
monarchy. The Advortlor's eager
ness to have important franchises
granted by tho Advisory Council,
which is still only a provisional
body, exhales the odor of contem
THE WATEB PKOBLEM.
One of the reflections passed upon
tha unsatisfactory condition of the
water supply, when tho subject was
lately before the Councils, was that
one Government paid no regard to
the knowledge aud experience on
record from preceding Goverainouts.
It is to bo hoped that tho present
Government will not follow this un
wise courso. Much valuable in form
ation is extant in reports of tho
Water Works Bureau for former
periods, which It would bo great
folly to Ignore In planning improve
ment. There are accounts of
droughts, some more severe than
that of this year, with details of how
the resultant scarcity of water on
each occasion was mitigated. Some
of tho temporary expedients then
resorted to would probably, by per
manent adoption of tho principle
and increase of equipment, go far
toward a completely satisfactory
solution of the problom. It is not
that water itself is so scarce now
that tho supply is shortened, so
much as that the means of distribu
tion aro very inadequate. Them is
an abundance of water in the three
artesian wells belonging to the Gov
ernment to supply nil tin limitr
lovels of the city. The existing
mains aro, however, nut nearly suf
ficient in capacity to conduct the
supply to conhumeiis even ut levels
to be reached by the natural prea
sure, much less pumping. What
tho Government therefore wanted
first aud most of nil was moro main
wator pipe, aud it would seem to
have been a iniatnku to make the
pipe tenders wait for those for it
pumping plant. Pipes for at least
a large part of the required exten
sion could probably bu obtained
from large dealers ou tho Coast
within from thirty to sixty days.
But the Minister of the Interior's
call for tenders for pumping plaut
and pipes gives until September 1
for closing, after which the tenders
have to bo awaited hero from all
over the United States. By tho time
the coutract is awarded aud the
goods arrive, tho plaut erected aud
the pipes laid, this season's drought
will have long passed into history.
When once the artesian wells are
given full scope, the Xuuanu water
may be retained for tho higher
levels. Then also the pumping ma
chinery ought not to be required at
all excepting in dry times. Pump
ing is expensive and should only bu
kept in operation when necessary.

German, and were very good pianos
in spite of thoir long voyage and
the tropical climate. As 1 recall it,
there wero no very competent tuners
to bo had, so tho pianos suffered
somowhat, being almost always out
of tune; but one gets used to being
deprived of luxuries when away
from tho center of civilization, and

Mrs. Cnaily, half caste; Mrs. Brew
er, American; Mr. Heiners aud Mr.
Melchers, Germans, wero the quartet
to whom wo were iudebtod for many
musical treats. Thoy never shirked
rehearsals, stngintr to form a perfect
whole aud sinking personal feeling
in tho general good.
Ouo concert deserves espocial
mention. It was held at the Fort
Street Church, thou tho largest
auditorium in tho city.
Tho opening chorus, from "La
Dame Blanche," was sung in Fronch.
Tho sopranos should havo begun,
but, all too frightened to start un
supported, waited for tho other, so
nouo of them ventured, and the
orchestra a mild piano orchestra
kept ou with tho 12 3 4, 1-234,
until the contraltos took up the air,
when tho nopranos, as If having kept
it pent up as long as possible, ourst
iuto a perfect roar. Tho only words
oue could distinguish wero "les
moutagnatds s'out reuuis," repeated
as many times and in as many differ
ent accents as there wero singers, so
that they seemed to form words for
the eutlro chorus.
Tho accident to tho chorus paved
tho way for other catastrophes. A
solo came to grief through tho en
tiro loss of a voice, tho fluto kopt on
and on, tho nccompauist glared to
such an extent that the iluto lost its
place, came to grief and stopped,
much to the consternation and also
delight of the audiouce. Tho To
Duum, possibly sung in Latin, turn
ed out a dirge, while ono of tho
"quartot"'was kept away by a serious
illness As a concert it was not a
success, yet it remains in the memory
for moro vividly than tho many
others that were.
What the exact requirements wore
that entitled one to become a mem
ber of the Amateur Musical Society
has never transpired, but all tho
members wore "performers" or "slug
ers." The iluto player was a pro
minent feature of
overv concert, his
limited repertoire being listened to
with increasing terror as the years
went on. What an infliction to a
musical oarl It was rather fun
though. Honolulu whispered that
his wifo, a strong minded, strong
featured woman who "H)rformed(
ou the piauo aud played his accom
paniments, rather henpecked the
irentlo little man and that ho stood
in mortal terror of her auger should
"ho put her out" in ouo of their in
terminable duets. So it was a sight
to sco him working, pulling, blow
ing, to keep in tune aud time, while
his wiftt transfixed him with a stony
glare at every evidence ou his part
of dropping behind.

outnumbered the German, or there

The conditions in Honolulu
during the past eighteen or
twenty months have been such
that to awake now and find
the harbor free from a war
ship would be like witnessing
the play of Hamlet with Ham
let out of it. Not th.it it is ne
cessary to have a vessel of this
character present at all times,
but the people are so accus
tomed to seeing them, and
there has been such an inter
change of hospitality among

neither the "Champion" nor the
"Philadelphia" should be al
lowed to leave except upon
the assurance that they will be
replaced by as good ships with
as efficient and agreeable offi
cers. We say "as good ships"
because it would smite the dig
nity of the people here, if, after
a season or so of vessels of the
White Squadron the foreign
governments should consider
this place too insignificant for
anything above a wooden hulk.
This would hardly be, however,
after the advertising we have
had. It is not so much what

'though the Declaration of In
dependence declares all men
to be endowed with certain un
alienable rights and among
these are "lile, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness," the gov
ernment does not provide the
power to assist one man in
the exercise of his right to the
injury of his neighbor; Jones
may give up work, if he wishes,
but if he attempts to stop
Smith at his employment and
he objects, Jones cannot look
to the army to assist him in
depriving Smith of one of his

years ago the price of stoves
was high; it continued so until
we introduced the "Pansy" and
practically gave them away.
It would be depriving other
dealers of a right they now rn-

them to stop charging exorbi
