Here is n statement of the direct
taxes paid by each island in 1895:

Maui 80,155(5 80
Knuni 83,050 -11

Total 8692,091 92

It s-h tlinn one-half of the taxes.

prppondoinnce of customs dues
paid at Honolulu:
Honolulu 8 5,022,89 L 77

relative burdens of tariff taxation

-while tli" whole i-limd only yields
a trille in taxes. There is no
.oiibo iii jealousy sometimes ex
pressed against Honolulu for
what it receives from tho revenue.
This being both tho political nnd
eoiumeieial capital, as well as tho
only safe port for shipping, it is
simply natural that it ought to re
ceive, as it pays, the lion's sliaro
of the revenue. At the same time
tho other districts of tho counhy,
which feed the town and supply a
large proportion of the material
of our nntional commerce, must
linvo their public wants supplied
regardless of their respective con
tributions to the treasury, yet
with regard to their population
and their undeveloped capabili
ties for sustaining population and
increasing tho wealth of tho Re

In publishing tho notice of tho
retirement of Alexnnder Young
from the management of tho
Honolulu Iron Works, tho Bul
letin would place on record its
high esteem for that gentleman as
a scientific mechanic and u citizen.

capacity as a public writer, has

at tho same lime peculiarly tho
friend and wise counsellor of
workingmon generally. His
occasional public lectures lmvo
been remarkably clear in ideas
and sago in advico. Mr. Young is
a man of eminent public spirit,
having, at no small sacrifice to his
privato interests, served this coun

a legislator under the Monarchy,
tho Provisional Government and
the Eopublic, "With moro loisuro

THE WATER SUPPLY.
There is a great deal of sickness
in Honolulu at present, and, while
tho southerly wind may lmvo
something to do with tho case,
there is loputablo medical opinion
that tho condition of tho wotor
supply is in tho main tho produc
ing factor. One of tho physicions (
of tho Boaid of Health lately re
marked that tho resen oirs were
never in such a filthy condition as
at present. A prominent resident
took n samplo of green slime
from a water tap in his house to a
medical I'M-mber of the Bom d as
evidence of the quality of drinking
water furnished to tho people.
Complaints are heard all over town
about tho resen oir water, lhe
BriiM'Tix will continue to insist
upon means being taken to purify
tho mountain water. L'ntilthis is
accomplished the artesian water
pumping plant should bo put in
opeiation. Tho Legislature ought
to appropriate enough inoni' to
keep tho pump going, at tinios
both when thero is a dearth in the
mountain supply and when -tho
reservoirs and aqueducts are be
ing cleansed, as they skould bo
periodically, oven after tho needed
filtering arrangements shall hnvo
