"Hawaii. A Lecturo dolivored
byThco. II. Davies, Eti., 1?. It.
U. S., before tho Mombers of tho
Young Mou's Chiistian Associa
tion, Southport, ou Friday Even
ing, Decombor 18th, 189(5. South
port; Robert Johnson and Com
pany Ltd., Printers, 'Visitor' oflico,
1897." Such is tho title page of a
pamphlet received by thoBuLLUTix
with tho compliments of Mr.
Davies. Tho lecturo treats his
torically of these islands from
Cook's discovory to the piei-ent
time, and concludes with a plea
for tho restoration of the monar
chy with Princess luiiuluui en-
throued. Ouo of tho most inter
esting things told by Mr. Davies
is the discovery by him, after
great pains, of tho very sheets of
tho log-book of Cook's ship Dis
covery! containing tho account of
the great navigator's death. Mr.
Davies says: "To my great joy
wo found tho vory shoots of the
log-book, which had been taken
from tho book, sent to
Kamsclmtka by a Russian ship of
war, thence to St. Petersburg, and
finally to "Whitehall, where they
havo been buried for more than
a century. Together with the log
book was found the diary of a
young ollicer, and both these docu
ments wero placed iu my hands,
and typewritten copies woio givon
to me, whioh I oagerly road. Two
questions wero thereby set at rest:
first, the Hawaiians never were
cannibals; second, although the
natives rogarded and treated Cook
as a god, ho clearly had no con -ceptiou
of tho fact, and innocently
expressed his wonder at their lib
mality aud gifts." Mr. Davies'
restoration plea will keep for com
In the Tacoma Wookly Ledgc
of March 12 is an editorial headed,
"Tho Prizo Fight Nuisance." It
opens with theqo words: "Those
nowspapers which are the, expon
ents of what is called tho 'new
journalism,' which pander to vico
and crime and the lowest tastes of
the vicious are at present raveling
in illustrated dptails of tho forth
coming prizo fight, whoreby a
couple of loud-mouthed bullies
propose to settlo tho important
question which can 'slug' the most
effectively." Tho artiolo goes on to
give tacit approval of a bill intro
duced in lust Congress for the
suppression of detailed and pic
tured ropoits of prizo fighting,
concluding thus bravely: "It will
bo said that a law, such as the one
proposed, cannot be passed and
enforced, but so was it said that
tho lottery could not bo driven out
of Louisiana nor lotteries exclud
ed fiom the mails. Muuy nioii bo
sides Boss Tweed havo found out
who.t people 'are going to do about
it' when offenders go a stop too
far." Behold you the Weekly
Lodgor of Maicb 19, a week later,
giving nearly two pages of its
finest print to a detailed report of
tho prizo fight, profusely illustrat
ed with portraits of tho principals
and abettors and pictures of tho
slogging. Thoro is also a leading
editorial ou tho fight, which gra
phically describos its overdiadow-
ing interest to all the serious con
cerns of life, individual and im
tional and universal, concluding
with this unmistakable capitulation
of tho high moral ground taken
a week beforo: "There is at
least something to bo said
in favor of exhibitions iu which
pooplo of all classes tako such a
porsistont interest, in tho face of
all that the law and prophots can
do to suppress thorn. While this
interest survives, as it promises
always to survive, in face of all
opposition, sincere and insincere,
would it uot be wisor to make tho
prize ring nioro presoutablo and
less objectionable than it is, rather
than bo forever 'bested' iu the
fruitless etTort to 'knock it out.' "
Prizo fighting is prohibited by
law in all tho States of tho Union
excepting Nevada, whoro a special
act was passed for tho sako of sec
uring the recent mill iu that State.
Probably a Federal enactment
will beforo long knockout tho dis
reputable business, geuernlly dis
honestly conducted as it is, for
