DANIEL LOGAN. Editor.
SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1890.
An evening contompornry is
throwing out foolers about start
ing an opposition tolephouo sor
vico , on this island. It is to bo
hoped no competing telephone
will bo allowed to add to the ob
struction of eloctrio conductor
poles now bad enough in our
streets. There is really no call
for nn opposition telephone- ser
vice. Visitors from abroad testify
that wo have now the best service
they are acquainted with any
where. And the prices can hard
ly bo called excessive compared
with those charged olsowhero, al
though with tho whole field under
their feot' the single company
ou'ht, many peoplo think, to
atlord rates us low as tho lowest
that existed under tho com
petition not long sinco ended.
There is no assurance to tho busi
ness community of any advantngo
from competition in telophono
service. It would bo with all
general providers and profession
al men as it was when we had
competition before. Thoso would
bu compolled, in order to reach
all their patrons andclientele who
can afford telephones in their
houses, to put intq thoir places of
business and offices tho tolophones
of both companies. Thus they
would havo to pay muoh more for
tho sorvico than now. Tho op
position lino, however cheap and
excellent its servico might be, is
not going to run tho old lino
out in a day, or a year,
or, probably, ten years. It
will be comparatively oasy for tho
line to make itself as cheap and
good as uny rival. Then the
stockholders of the new concern
would find out just upon 'what an
uphill routo they hnd been in
duced to onter with their capital.
In tho ond it would doubtless bo
tho old story, of ono corporation
eating up the other, and a restored
monopoly compelling tho publio
to pay higher rates than ever, so
as to recoup the stockholders for
nn onormous amount of unneces
sary expense, and make tho capital
stock increased to an amount far
in excess o what would furnish
m effective systom pay dividends
early enough in tho next century
to mako tho sharos wrth while bo
quoathing to the passing -generation's
posterity. Moreovor, it is
quite within reasonable possibility
-that tho people may before a great
many yoarB require tho Govern
ment to take over tho tolophono
sorvico as telegraphs havo bo
como the property of the state in
other countries and placo it at
the minimum cost to the public.
When wo have international nnd
intorisland telegraph cables, the
internal land connections what
ever tho mode of communication
would better bo under public
than private control. In view of
nlj the foregoing considerations, it
is tho Bulletin's advice that any

In a recent issue tho Hawaiian
Commercial Journal told of a
physician who refused to rendor
assistanco to a little child who
was injured and lying uncon
Bcious in tho stront, until somoone
guaranteed his fees; who dunned
tho husband of a dead wifa for his
fees beforo hor body was' cold;
who advised patients that certain
serious operations must bo per
formed to Bnvo thoir lives, nnd
thon refused to undertake tho
oporatiou unless a thousand dol
lors was paid to him in advance.
Dr. MeGrrow has a letter .in tho
latest issue of tho paper mention
ed, asking the editor to publish
"tho amines of parties who aro
guilty of so heinous crimo." Tho
names ought to bo published sinco
tho facts wore, iu justice to the
reputable physicians of the city,
many of whom aro really philan
thropic in their dealings with
people who havo littlo or no moans.
Tho Advertiser peoplo should
road tho Bulletin. They would
thon know that the Olaa Coffoo
Planters' Association has boon in
existence about throo years, that
it comprises in its momborship
nearly all the? coffee plauters of
Hawaii, who arcfully alivo to tho
advantages to bo derived in asso
ciating themselves together for
mutual protection and benefit. Ac

Telophono 072. Honolulu, II. I.
Over the purple profile of
the Waianae railge the irides
cent gleam of the .variegated
after glow suffuses the west
ern sky. A soft breeze blows
over the town, rustling the
foliage embowering thousands
of verandas. Aarsden's bats
go forth in quest of beetles,
their uncanny wings fanning
the whiskers of the ''free and
independent," as they sit en-
I joying'their post-prandial cigar
and meditating on the Regis
tration Act. Bill Williams puts
his number tens on the ladder
and mounts to his eyrie at the
mouth of the peaceful harbor,
where, with a Japanese safety
match he lights the lantern
that warns the mariner against
taking the Miowera's overland
route into the desired haven.

What a pretty introduction
to a novel could be made but
of a Honolulu evening 1 The
picture is incomplete, how
ever.without ringing in a hand
some parlor lamp. We have
your choice of many varieties
of hanging lamps in the most
artistic styles silver, bamboo,
black iron, porcelain, etc., with
elegant shades. If it's "light
on the subject" you want, you
may just as well have it fn

'in your way, you cannot gel
lower for equal value elsewhere.
Don't bother any more with
that womout lamp, but treat
your household to a "thing
of beauty" that will' shed. a
nightly glory over your do
mestic happiness and pleasures.
.Some people may have tried
to convince you that the-mon-archy
of the oil stove has been
abrogated in favor of other in
ventions. Don't give any
countenance to such a notioiv.
The oil stove has kept right
ahead with the march of pro
gress, until its improvement
has culminated in the Blue
Flame Oil Stove that we sell..
If we have told any of you
that our stock was exhausted
and would not be replenished
for some little time, we must
take it back as we do now
gladly. The Monowai agrees
ably surprised us with a tresh
lot, and they are now opened
out. None who saw the ex
periments in cookery perform

Any who. did not have thatop
portunity are welcome to en

of the stove's qualities on ap

is that we never try to. sell
goods on the chance that they
may give satisfactions We
