THE STAR ON STREETS.
Aftor having told n wondering
world that Honolulu had about
the next to tho best streets of any
city on tho globe, and attributing
that oxcellout local condition
mainly to its own exclusively
scriouH discussion of the subject
of streets, tho Star switches out of
tlio orbit of ilattery and with ill
concealed bitterness asserts iu
effect tlmt tho street-makers of tho
present regimo do not know their
business. Tliis is "serious" dis
cussion with a vengeance and it will
bo an arohipolago's wonder if the
Minister of the Interior docs not
rosont tho impertiuenco by plac
ing the btar on lus blacklist tor
boycotting. That membor of tho
Executive, the Star is apt
t find out, not only does not in
rito criticism of anything done
iu his department, but will not
brook tho faintest roilection of
public opinion adverse to tho
work of any bureau under his
feuprirvieion. It would bo pre
mature, however, simply on ac
count of tho break montioucd, to
welcome tho Star into tho ranks
of independent journalism whore
it might resist executive tyranny
ovi-r publio opiuion'. More likely
that paper may be expected to
'take it all back" rather than have
the boycott confirmed against it,
which is tho only response tho
lntorior Department has in storo
for any complaint or criticism
from the public through the press.
In its discovery that "there seems
to bo quite a radical fault in both
the theory and practico for street
surfacing in Honolulu," tho Star
is followiug tho initiative of tho
Bulletin a great distance in tho
rear. For fourteen years, undor
different ownerships and con
duotorships, tho Bulletin has
hammorod upon tho same "radi
cal fault." If tho Star should
surprise itsolf and its owners by
porsevoring in tho campaign so
bravoly opened, it might do worse
than reprint some of tho practical
discussions of tho mat tor which
have appeared somo within a few
weeks past and somo in years be
fore tho Star twinkled in tho
columns of tho Bulletin. There
aro many miles of stroot in Hono
lulu as woll mado as could bo
according to tho system in
Togue, nud those not subject
to- conditions making them pe
culiarly liable to damago from
Htorm floods aro maintained
with credit. Yet ovory year wit
nesses a tromondous destruction
of costly stroot work by storms,
whioh could be avoided by scien
tific road engineering. Iu grad
ing, draining and surfacing, suoh
iu each aud all as would obviato
devastation by storm waters, there
is room indeed for radical im
provement. War brpught about by tho
marvoloiiB oloquonco of a retired
statesman, tho "grand old man"
Gladstono, who when holding tho
reins of power was denounced for j
liis "poaco at any price" policy,
would indeed be an incongruous
end of century spectacle Thcro
does not Boem to bo any ground
for suspicion, however, that Glad
stone, in tlio sero find yellow loaf
of aco, is not animated iu bis ox-
' prossions by humane regard for
tlio outrageously down-trodden
1 Armoninns. It cannot bo sup
posed tlmt, crownod with all tho
honors tlmt ho ovor would accept,
the aged stalenuan should do auy-
thing, without cause- deeply em
, bedded in his conscience to pro
! duco an embarrassing situation
for his oldtimo political opponents
now charged with tho destinies of
; tlio Empiro.
Attornoy-Couoral Smith is quot

Hawaii, but our Minister of Jus

chance, if a slim one, for a silver
administration at Washington on
March -1 next, and then it might
bo remembered to Hawaii's disad
vantage that a member of her

Before Whitelaw Reid be
came Minister 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
instance, "Was it murder or
suicide?" or "Did she kill him
for love?" or "Will the Presi
dent sign it?" etc.
The whole paper was speck-1
lerl with intprrnrrntivp nninrs.
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

Piatt consent?" How the h-I
