THE NATIONAL, PAPER.
. Seeing a uotieo of tho Pftrndiao
of tho Pacific, which Baid that its
last iBsuo contained now pictures,
tho writor took tho first opportun
ity of inspecting tho paper. It
would bo an innovation worth
noting if the official advocalo of
tourist travel had something uew
in tho lino of illustrations onco in
a twelvemonth. Tho results of
inqpoction on this occasion, how
ever, are disappointing. Differ
ent photographs of tho old favor
ilos aro copied, porhnps, but tho
subjects are "tho samo old six
pence.1" Tho arrival of u steamer,
view of a coffee field, etc., scouos
that havo been reproduced so
often, if from other negatives, aro
ho familiar in tho way of subjects
as to havo become tiresome. If
the periodical was ono looking
chiefly to lcoal patrouago for its
euppoit, and standing upon its
intrinsic merits, Us character if
inoll'ensivo would not bo subject
i) public criticism. 13ut
n largo portion of tho
expense of publication is
borno by tho public treasury, and
tho Paradise is expectod in roturn
to make tho best possible knowing
to tho outside world of tho attrac
tionsfor "pleasuro and profit''
of those Hawaiian Islands.
E.ieh number taken . by itself
would bo a creditable effort in
that direction, but when you take
MP Bovoral numbers in succession
n senso of monotonous repetition
of Eubjocts, of samoness in tho
ecleolio debcriptious of island
scenery and t-ociety, steals upon
the mind. It must be confessed,
however, that tho present editor
of tho Paradise has made some
improvement in this respect. MisB
Bird's painfully florid, if not
frantic, description of tho volcano;
Hoi 1 in M. Daggott's poem on Wai
kiki,und Mark Twain's apostrophe
to Hawaii havo boon loft out'fora
good many months now, after thoy
had each done duty in the period
ical about overy othor issuo for
years. Pictures of tho two public
buildings, with tho wooden mules
in a tramcar in front of one, have
been kindly omitted for some time
back. Yot there has been more
than enough from guide books,
and from commonplaee descrip
tions not generally accurato in
correspondence of visitors to for
oign papers. It is doubtful if,
coking at each issue in its turn
of tho truly handsomely gotten-up
paper in appearance, ono would
bo disposed to criticize it of his
own volition. But when unfavor
able criticism is heard from tho
very class that tho Paradise is do
eignod to roach, it is timo to dis
cuss tho contents of the paper
with more miuutenoss than has
boon tho custom. A tourist who
has tiavoled in every quarter of
tho globo, and is familiar with
tho highest class of topical ad
vertising, remarked to tho writor
lately, as he picked up the latest
Paradiso: "I have bought a lot
of these papers, but find them
very monotonous in stylo. One
js a great deal liko another.
Thoro is too much Kilauea I Ki
lauoa! altogether. Even tho pic
tures havo a tiresome sameness
about them. You have some
talented artists here. Why aro
thoy not iuduced to give some
bits of your highly diversified
Bcenoryl)' It might bo added
that thoro are a number of educat
ed specialists in various Hues,
whom it should not bo difficult to
persuade to contribute descriptive,
nrtioles at ' .first"1 hand.
True, some of' these do
occasionally tunko an appearanco
in tho pog's of Paradise, but it is
nlmost invariably in extracts from
othor prints. Thoro aro rosidonts
of picturesque localities in differ
ent parts of tho islands who can
writo woll, and it might bo ex
pected that thoy would bo glad if
solicited, ovon as a relief from
tho humdrum of thoir insular
Bocioty, to furnish crisp, frosh
and exact descriptions of tho
beauties and tho peculiarities of
their environments. Tho foregoing
romarks havo been mado in all
kindness, and aro meant to bo
helpful to tho publishers of
tho national advertising medium,
for, ai already stated in offoct, tho
Paradiso of tho Pacific has been
greatly improved under its presont
THE DIRECTORY WAR.
Hustnd's Hawaiian Directory
for 185)6 has bo3n on the Bur.LK
TiN's tablo just long enough to af
ford a casual glance at its contents.
Even this brief opportunity, how
ever, suffices to show that all that
hud boon predicted of tho work by
tho projeotor of its rival stands
confirmed. Superficially tho book
shows up woll. It has been turn
ed out neatly by ono of tho first
publishing plants on tho Coast.
Yot tho evidences of hot hasto in
issuing it, so as to injuro the local
enterprise as much as possible,
aro apparent at any turn of a page.
Tho first thing that strikes
tho oye, ami palls on tho
tasto, is tho repriuting of descrip
tive and historical matter from
previous issues by Mr. Hunted,
much of which indeed had been
cribbed bodily from former Ha
waiian directories by othor pub
lisher. This part of tho work is
of a crazy-quilt pattern, showing
mo6t unskilful editing of its mis
cellaneous material clipped from
a variety of ancient sources.
Features of Honolulu that havo i
all but passed away aro por-'
trayed as if belonging to tho
present. There is lack of con
nection and cohesion in tho parts,
minuto dotails that might bo in
placo in special works, aud a
poverty of treatment in generali
zation. Again, in dealing with
special subjects, in what is now
matter, tho hand of the catch
penny trickster is strongly in
evidence. Por iustanco, when
Mr. Husted was hero ho of courso
learned that coffee raising was a
very prevalont subject. There
fore, instead of giving exact in
formation as to the chances
for acquiriug coffee land
as tho local directory will
do ho indulges in tho most ex
travagant assertions of tho profits
of tho industry. Ho loaves tho
impression that everybody who
has scratched coffee land is ob
taining roturns of 125 per cent,
on the investment, although tho
fact is that very few cultivators
comparatively, havo realized any
gain whatever from several years'
cultivation of ground that has
eaten up their littlo competences.
Although tho rewards of intolli
gont investment and effort aro
coming nigh our coffeo growers,
it is mischievous to sond abroad
tho impression that tho easiest
way to make a fortuuo is to plant
coffeo m Hawaii. Tho freak of
inserting tho names of dead peo
ple and, of all, thoao oftho wives
of living men is tho directory
proper is repeated by Husted.
"Gono to tho CoaBt" in another
funny personal direction, which,
carried out to tho full, would
make n book of itself.
Names unspollod and names in
serted of people who havo loft tho
country for good, and so forth,
aro only samples of the disadvan
tages of having a directory pub
lished thousands of miles away
by tho people who do not know
tho country or its inhabitants.
