In thiB isbuo appears a Becond
lottor from a correspondent who
ndvooateB tho establishment of a
drydook at tho port of Honolulu.
Fiftcon years ngo,upou tho export
ronort of tho lato Mr. Oraudall,
marine ongineor, tho Govornruout !
dooidod upon building a raarino
railway in preforonco to a dry
dook. Owing to tho structure of
tho harbor bottom it was doomed
impracticablo to construct a
graving dock. Tho marino rail
way was thoreforo built and in its
thirteou years of operation has
been an incalculable benefit to tho
port. For tho ocean sailing fleet
frequonting tho port, as well as
.tho inter-island steam and sail
coasting maiine, it has beou quilo
adequate and a great boon. Its
vork done at San Francisco
prices has been universally com
mended for excollenco by both
masters and owners. Tho ser
vices of tho marino railway in tho
hnuliug up and tho repairing of
tho United States cruisor .Nipsic,
after hor terrible buffeting by tho
Apia hurricano in 1889, were
highly praised by tho Secretary
of the Navy upon tho loport of
Admiral Kimberloy. Tho pres
ent lease of tho works will expiro
iu a couple of years, and by that
timo heavy repairs will bo uecos
eary upon thorn. Between the
action of tho oloments and wear
nnd tear the plant is approaching
n condition when its renewal in
pait will bo requisite to con
tinued ollicioncy. If it had not
been in tho hands of men who
knew how to take care of it, there
is no doubt that tho marino rail
way would bo even now in a state
of dilapidation. Tho hauling up
of tho heavy iron bark Gainsbor
ough on the ways, tho other day,
proves that as yet the works are
equal to their original require
ments. Their record of usefulness
and profit to the port, iu conjunc
tion with tho present status of tho
work just described, should make
the question of a drydock one for
practical discussion, especially iu
visiw of the steadily increasing
maritimo tratlic of Honolulu. Bo
marks boaring directly on tho
question aro reserved for a subse
Captain Appleton of Massachu
setts, in his address at Oiihu
Collego the other day, gave rea
sons for believing that tho Pana
ma Canal was a feasible project,
that it was impossible to conceive
of its abandonment, and that
when opened its success would
far outrank that of tho Suez
Canal. Until tho scandals iu
Franca connected with tho enter
prise transpired, accompanied by
tho collapso of Count do Losseps,
health, tho Bulletin gavo utter
ance to tho opinion that Pannma
would win ovor Nicaragua. This
opinion was revived by reports of
reorganization of tho Panama
sohoino, aud is now strengthened
by the views of Captain Appleton,
who has given special attention to
tho subject for mauy years. His
inteiost therein datoB back to the
onni'iig of tho Suez Canal in

credited representative of tho
United States present at that great
JAPAN AND SILVER.
About all tho world has been
pot by the enrs over the great
silver controversy in tho United
States. English papers Englishly
edited and English papois Japa
nesoly edited received from Yoko
hama by InBt mail aro at it almost
as fiorcoly as tho party pupera in
tho United States. If ono paper
says gold has appreciated anothor
is into its wool straightway for a
villainous heretic and ignoiant
numskull. A correspondent has
told tho story of tho "conspiracy
of 1873," explaining that it was
not tho paBsago of an Act, but tho
unlawful alteration in tho toxt of
an Act of Congress nftor its
passago, that constituted that
allegod crime. Elsowhoro in this
paper will bo found tho toxt of an
address to tho Amorican pooplo
from sovorol economists in Tokio.
If it has beou forwarded in good
timo for its weight to havo due
conrso in tho campaign, Bryan
will bo olectod as sure as tho

Mongolian dragon. In tho raoan

I enjoyed Sabbath exorcises with
the people of Mokulnu held in a
stono church built many years
since; a longitudinal pile of stones
surmounted by a Bhinglo roof.
At 3 o'clock one starlight morning
I left the wave beaten shoro of
Mokulnu iu a canoe paddled
by Captain Kenupuni and his
fellow oarsman, their oars dip
ping deftly into tho briny deep,
while on wo wont, either
watching tho billows or looking
up at tho zigzag trails of tho
precipitous gulches of Kaupo,
while at tho foot of each gulch
was a human habitation nestled
on tho rocky or sandy beach.
After a few hours sailing we were
drawn up on Kipahulu beach.
While sailing, the island of Ha
waii loomed up grandly in tho
distance, Mnuua Kea, Maunn Loa
aud Hualalai, its royal climax.
A week's sojourn nt Kipahulu
gave me, as nt Mokulnu, an in
sight to tho homes nnd lives of
tho natives. I met tho people at
tho church, also at tho prayer
meeting. I Icnrned that raoro or
less liquor is used; absence of
saloons does not interfere with
traffic in tho same. For two Jdays
I visited tho Govornmont school
taucht in English by a graduate
of Kamohamehn school, nssisted
by a graduate of tho Boyal school.
I expressed to the pupils an earn
est desire that thoy may bo de
livered from tho curse of strong
drink. From Kipahulu I rodo to
