THE PdWDER MAGAZINE.
Five years ngo a numerously
signed potition from rosidents of
Punchbowl slopoa wbb prcscutod
to thu then Minister of the Inte
rior, praying for the removal of
tho powder magazine outside of
the residence qunrtors of tho city.
Two different Legislatures have
held throe sessions since then,
besides tho permanent session for
oightoen months of tho Provisional
Government Councils. Through
out tho period thus covered
a desultory agitation has boon
kept up by the lesidonta of
the vicinity for tho removal of
tho menace to their lives and
propei ty. Yot thoro is no sign
of any movement in the ninttor
on the part of tho Government.
This dilntoriuess is inexplicable
in view of all tho other improve
ments, some of which were not so
urgently rpquired, which have
beou effected since the locality in
question has been built up with
. homes. It was tho duty of the
administrations that sold the land
on Punchbowl for house lots to
have taken tho depository of ex
plom'ves out of tho wav without
-waiting to bo asked. The samo
duty has not diminished but rntlior
t.io contrary in tho case of succeed
ing administrations who have seen
dwellings, tome of thorn hand
some in design, spring up on dif
ferent Bides of tho dangerous ob
ject. Besides bping a menace to
life and property, and because of
its being so, tho magazine is an
unjust detraction from the value
of roal estnte in its neighborhood.
By neglecting to remove the thing
the Government ilsolf is a loser
in mme than one way. Standing
there the magazine prevents the
improvement of lots previously
sold which would increaso .tho
value of taxable proporty. It also
sei iously affects tho popular de
mand for opening up the remain
ing laud in the neighborhood for
homesteads. Probably tho differ
ence between what that land
might bring if put up at auction
now and the prices that it might
realize with tho magazine removed
-would alono pay tho oxponso
of tho greatly desired removal. A
vessel entering port with explo
sives on board must display tho
red flag of danger. Yot horn is
tho Government all the year
round maintaining the country's
entire commercial stocks of gun
powder and dynamite in tho
midst of a district containing
many of tho incest domiciles
in Honolulu. Within threo or
f mr hundred yards of tho maga
zine thero are about a score of
dwelling houses each of which
Las cost from two to eight thou
sand dollars to build. Thero are
-within the same compass as many
inoro neat cottages of probably
more importance to their owners,
in proportion to their circum
stances, than tho costlier dwoll
ings mentioned. "When thero was
a Hie iu that loculity a few weeks
ngo, pooplo said in husky whis
pers, "It's almost closo to tho
powder magazine !" It is not tho
immediate vicinity of the establish
ment, however, which is alone
monaood. Anyone who has read
of powder mill explosions may
easily imagine that an "nccident"
to tho powder magazino would
scatter devastation and death not
only over tho Punchbowl slopes,
but athwart tho Kulaokahua and
tho Mnkiki plains, thickly built
as thoy ore with tho homes of our
most thrifty people,to say nothing
of tho wreokago of glnss that
would occur throughout tho entire
city. Much longor delay in hav
ing this groat danger abolished
will compel tho inhabitants to try
tho stimulus of a masB meeting
on tho subject.
As tho Bulletin was tho "only"
paper that "soriously" advocated
an extension of industrial train
ing at tho ltoform school, it can
with sublirao graco congratulate
tho Minister of Education upon
having decided to offoct tho neces
sary improvement. Industrial
training boing ono of tho ossontial
elements of a reformatory,
tho lateness of this reform in tho
local institution is all that detracts
from tho credit hero accorded.
But as Minister Coopor has only
had the educational affairs under
his chargo a fow mouths, thoro is
no detraction whatever from tho
promptness with which ho acted
whenovor tho matter was brought
vividly to his attention.

to its paper wore so fow and far be

together and created block pave
ments. This issue contains tho conclu
sion of tho graphic account of tho
killing of tho Matabolo wizard by
an American scout. Although ho
may havo "needed killiu'," tho
intended effect of the act seems to
havo been lost, for tho Matabolo

Before Whitelaw Reid be
came Ainister to France he
devoted a good deal of his
time to the conduct of his pa
per, the Tribune. The copy
editors who put up the head
lines of stories of the day fell
into the habit ol making most
of them interrogative, as, for
I instance, 'Was it murder or
jsuicide?" or "Did she kill him
i for love?" or "Will the Presi
dent sign it?" etc.
i The whole paper was speck
! led with interrogative points.
I The thing had been going for
weeks, till one day a postal ar
rived, addressed to Ar. Reid,
and marked personal. It read
"I'm getting awful tired of
your questions. Why don't
you find out something? A
great newspaper is supposed to
know eveiything, and ought
not to annoy its readers with
needless inquiries. This morn
ing you asked: "Will Mr.
Piatt consent?" How the h-1
do I know?
That night an order came
that the Tribune must ask few
In spite of Whitelaw Reid's

Question 4 Have you seen
the Hartman Steel Wire
Mats we are offering? The
rainy season is coming on and
they are just what you want.
They are cheap, cleanly and
Question S Have you seen
the Rain Gauges we have
lately imported? With one of
these little instruments you
can laugh at the Clerk of the
Weather and give him a point
er after every storm.
Question 6 Have you seen
the latest thing out? It is a
portable bootblack stand, made
of iron, which can be screwed
to a post anywhere and moved
