MORE VARIED FOOD.
Considerable changos in tho
sondltious of Honolulu's food
supplies may be expected from
Iho cold storage just starting,
fresh meat, fish, vegetables and
Jruit from other oliuios will now
"Tie placed within reach of modor
ito purses. There will bo no
need of racing to tbo vendors'
shops to securo an article before
it spoils in our atmosphere, or
before all not ahoady spoiled bas
loon bought up. Tbo extension
of tho libt of supp'ies for tbo tablp
will bo wbolosomo in its possibili
ties of chango of diet. For a sup
posed fruit country the markets
of Honolulu are extrrraoly disap
pointing in tho quantity, vnnoty
and, in too groat a (hgroe, quality
of tbe fruit supplies. With refrig
erator compartments in tbo steam
ors calling here, it should bo pos
aiblo to havo an exotic vuriation
in fresh fond supplies at both of
our two slightly differentiated
3easons. This is because the Am
erican and the Australasiun sim
movs aro tho reverse of ouch
other in point of timo. Tbo faci
lities for procuring supplies from
abroad will tend to keep pricoB
joasonable hero, without furnish
ing competition severe enough to
le disastrous to any local indus
tries. Some of our food raisers
-jrill probably profit by seeing
low tho foroign producers put up
iieir articles for exportution.
Tho consumption of fruit will
toml moro and moro to boonmo
habitual firming pooplo with wbom
it is now only cnsuul Thereby
tho production of domosiio fruits
will bo stimuhitod, win If tnotliods
of ranrketing tbeni will w im- ,

doubt that nil incrousid use of
fruit by tbo pooplo gonomlly in
this climato will grotitly enbanoo
tho public health. An excess of

and fiery ondimonts,

Tboro is nothing to bo said
personally against either of the
appointees to tbo Circuit Court
bouch, Messrs. Carter and Perry.
Yot, us tbo Bulletin' has inti
mated boforo, it is a pity that
practitioners of moro tnaturo
yours and oxtondod professional
experience could not b.ve been
induced to accept tho positions.
No matter bow proficiont tbo in
cumbents may be in tbo legal
lore of tho books, it occurs to a
lay mind that a eonsidotilo
neriod of actual battlinc i W.bo
arena sncuin uo roquisite, tor
cultivaliig cpickness of judicial
insight and discrimination bo
tweon tl o tixio and tho false issues
cf a canso. Mr. Carter, it is truo,
haB tho benefit of somo years of
connection with tho Judiciary
Department before taking his law
college course, and all who know
his stoudiness and gravity of pur
pose will cxptct that in time he
will make a model jurist. In
deed, with an older head as his
associato, there might bo no ob
jection to his elevation, as in
difficult questions taken under
adi omont ho would have tbe
counsel of ngo and oxpononco.
It wou'd bo highly improper, in
our humblo opinion, for a nisi
prius judgo to consult with a
member of the Supremo Court
upon any specific issue, as tbo
odvico given might bear upon
points that woro to como before
tbo Supreme Coirt on appeal.
In that case a leading principal
of our judiciary lnw would bo
violated. For the same reason
Mr Porry, estimable in ovory
way as a man, might not bo an
objeclionnblo uppointoe with an
o'dor and more oxporionced col
league. Ho U praotically un

Tho foregoing remarks aro not
intondod to condemn tbo appoint
ments of theso two worthy youug
men to tho highly responsible
positions in quostion. but rather to
nlace this paper on record as holding
viows that have mostly always in
this country and with rare ex
ceptions in other countries ruled
appointments to the higher courts
of law. Even if tbo appointees in
this case should prove at the very
outset of thoir judicial careors
tho peers of the ablest and oldest
jurist that havo ovor shed lustre
on tho Hawaiian bench, tho faat
would not dotrict fiom tho sound
ness of tho p s'tkn h rein as-

It must be understood, how-

them will bblievo that either ot

must bo BUro that both of thom
shrunk from entertaining tbe
suggestion when appvoachpd
thorowith. It was n caao un

least one of tbe seats, then it is a

Then- is roa m to boliuvo thtt,t
the chief difficulty in finding men
to accent or to retain pojit.ous on
be bouch in this country is that
the salaries are not an inducement
to woigli against the profits of a
fairly gnoil private l.iw pr.iotice

that will pormit men of mature
years and aolid experienco to ac

let us try tho much decried policy
of appointing judges for only
limited torms, excophng perhaps

A. QUESTION OF JIOIULH.
An Open Letter to the Editor of the
January 4, 18(.)G.
To Alatau T. Atkinson, Editor
My do.ir Sir, Will yon kindly
allow mo spacu sufficient in the
columns of tliu intetosting journal
ao carefully edited by you.to atato
n queBtiou tif joiiruuiistic privi
lege? in an odiloiiil found in thn
AdvortiBor for January 2d, 18'JG
and so presumably written by
yourself, tlu name of the editor
of Tho Hawaiian, as woll as tbo
fame of an unpublished number
of said magazine, are mangled
almost boyoud recognition. Tho
reiiHonu stated for this perform
ance'are t,hat tho Decomber num
bor of Tbo Hawaiian contain-"
"disreputable matter,'' and "would
have been a disgrace to tbe office
that issued it.'' llight bore o nnec
tbe question: How do you know
anything about tho mutter that
was to bo published in tho D -combor
number of Tho Hawaiian?
So that you may quito under
stand my position and yours, Mr.
Atkinson, lot us agreo upon the
facts. The manuscript for the
Decombor number of The Hawai
nn wis doliverod by mysolf to thr
Hawaiian G.ib tte Co. a corpoi
ation organized undor tho laws of
tho Eepublic of Hawaii for the
purposo of printing said nuaibor.
Tho Hawaiian Gazett Co. had no
authority or power ti publish tbe
Decomber number of The Hawai
ian. aiu company aiU not as
sumo to, nor, so far as I am able
to learn, did said company pub
lish any of said magazine uuiu
bora, nor has any other person oi
company done so. Now, I think
you will ugroo with mo, Mr. At
kinson, that, morally and legally,
tho unpublished writings of an
author aio quito as sacred as hit
sealed lottors. It would scarcoly
bo deemed honorablo to re.id,
much less to publish, the latter.
In India tboy have a la bio to
this eilVct: Ono day Biahatn
said to Forco, "Who is strongor
than thou?'' Forco rosponded,
"Tact." A Chinese provorb siys:
"What could not the lion do
were he a monkey!" Now, I am
assured that the Advortisor is
neither served by a lion nor by a
monkey; yet the thing which tho
Advertiser has dono suggests thn
Chinese proverb and tho fable of
Hindustan. "Will you kindly,
Mr. Atkinson, explain your posi
tion. To mo your attitude is ono
which will scarcoly warrant tho
claim of right conduct or vqiuro
with the ethics of morality.
Yours most truly,
JULIEN D. HAYNE.
Tho question was nskod tho
othor day: "If Hayne's tnagnzino
is immoral, why don't tbo Bull
etin or Advortisor state wherein
its immorality lies?" Tho Bul
letin does not see that tboro is
any nocossity; of detiiliug tho
charge. It is in a measure self
ovident. ftora tho genorul tone of
previous issues of tho Hawaiian.
It would havo redounded to tho
Advertiser's credit if that paper
had refused priuting it throe

Christmas is over but there

them. To insure a good bag
of game on one of these trips,
the hunter must have a good

good dogs. The Hawaiian
