-REFORM ON MOLOKAI.
By the report of the first visita
tiou of osi'cutivo ofticors of tho
Bouul of Health to the Leper
Settlement on Molokai uuder-the
now Eyotem adopted which, by
tho way, has been chronicled ex
clusively in the Bulletin abuses
aro revealed which aro to bo abo
lished, and changes in the lino of
improvement are to be made
from the practical observation
of tho officers. Resident sup
eriutondenoy could scarcely do
more for th good of the Settle
ment than frequent visits of a
man of the practical experience
of 'Mr. Reynolds, chief agent of
tho Board, aided by the business
eye of the secretary, Mr. Wilcox,
and it is gratifying to find that
their findings and recommenda-ViopB-o.rv
received by the Board
with tho utmost confidence. Here
aftor, it may be concluded, the
unfortunate denizens of the reser
vation will have all their rea
sonable complaints attended to.and
wants in consonance with humane
treatment supplied, with the great
est promptitude. Reference to the
report, Riven verbnlly but fully
summarised in yesterdny's issue
of this paper, will show quite an
extonsivo lino of reform alroady
accomplished and under way. It
is very pleasing to the Bulletin
to see its recent suggestion of
having the visitors' cottago mado
"a clean house" carried out. Lot
the good work in all respects
proceed. until the Set
tlement will coraparo moro
favorably than over, in sani
tary and humane features, with
other great lazarettos of the world.
When the highest degree of per
fection in these respects shall
have been attained, tho next grand
step will bo to secure the regular
services of eminent physicians,
verocd in special knowledge boar
ing upon tho scourge, with a view
to the discovery of an efiicucious
From all that has been heard
about town, there is an over
whelming opinion in favor of tho
suggestion, in regnrd to "tho
baseball muddle," which was made
by a correspondent of this paper
on Tuesday. That is, that tho de
cision regarding tho match of
July 5 should be modified so as to
give the St. Louis team its ninth
k inning. It is not honorablo, iu-
1 deed, in the Star club to take ad
j'AVautaco of that most unfair
jjfdecision as it stands. It is a de-
; cision that has absolutely no
j. t i. :tu: i
supporters of tho game. Where
tho St. Louis club hue mado a
great mistake, in the ground of
!its withdrawal from the League,
in asking for an 'absurd
terbalauce tho vile decision
previously givou against it.
Oaptain Thompson knows
too much of law to imagine for
ono momont that two wrongs can
make a right. The St. Louis club's
wrong has only to bo righted, thero
is little doubt, to have it again take
tho fiold, whom in tho past it has
nobly proved itsolt composed of
ball players rather than kickers.
With only throo clubs in tho
League, this season has given tho
boat exposition of baseball, as a
regular thing, which Honolulu
has known. It is a pity if tho
series has to go to Banish now on
miserablo book play shystoring.
It was probably not intonded
for a dig at Judge Wilcox, but
some thoughtless people aro like
ly to take it so, that a contempo
rary should mention a fiuo of $10
imposed on a Ohiuatnan for chefa
gambling as "the lowest on re
cord." Tho criminating fact was
the finding of an old chefa ticket
in a baskot, which the prisoner ad
mitted to have been his property.
It appeared, however, that tho
detective who made tho arrest had
kept the warrant for such two or
three days unexecuted, and that
in the mnantimo ho had made an
unlawful search of the China
man's premises, he having had no
search warrant. Moreover, the
culprit was brought into court
with marks of violonce to wit,
two black eyes attributable to
rough UBage at the hands of tho
preservers of the peace. Thsro
was but barely technical evidence
of tho prisoner's guilt, his own
admission being a waiver of the
"benefit of the doubt," Biid the
magistrate acted righteously in
giving him the smallest penalty.
Also, when he gave a severe
caution to the detective, against
unlawful searches, be only per
formed bis simple duty, but the
publio is glad to recognize the
fulfilment of official duty.
THE GLORIOUS FOURTH.
An article in tho San Francisco
Chronicle earnestly calls in ques
tion boiuo of the old-fashioned
methods of celebrating the Fourth
of July. Although thoso aro in
pursuance of the hope expressed
by John Adams "that," as the
Chroniclo states, "tbo Fourth of
July would always be celebrated
by the ringing of bells and tho
firing of gunpowder and by overy
other means of making n racket"
yet "John Adams spoke from
the standpoint of a rural "squiro."
The Chronicle say a:
But had John Adams foreseen
what the Fourth would become in
a crowded modern city of a centu
ry and more beyond his time, he
would have laid out a different
and a moro civilized program.
He would not havo acoepted the
responsibility of the deaths, fires,
runaways, injuries and general
deviltry and drink which the
Fourth annually brings to the
thronging life of a great town. Had
his shade visited San Francisco
while the late celebration was un
der way, we feel assured that it
would have blushed through its
impalpability; for between tho
noise of tho Fit, tho killing and
maimiug of onlookers and parti
oipants, the burning up of homes,
the waste of money and the flow
of rum, it was a day that every
doceut citizen and every person
of nerves and sensibilities was
glad to see brought to a close. It
was certainly a long remove from
tho day which the honest old Pu
ritan burgher had in mind when
he laid out tho plan of his auuual
In conclusion, tho Chroniclo
looks forward to a rational Fourth,
"something liko Thanksgiving or
Momorial Day or Christmas, with
tho oratorical, and. spectacular fea-v
tures ,'ot the present -Fourth re
tained." Such' atsucceBtion can?

The holidays are over and
the community is settling
down to business again. The
three hottest months of the
year are at hand and many
people are thinking of discard
ing the use of coal and wood
stoves for the summer. To all
such we can recommend the
well-known and justly popular
Blue Flame Oil Stoves, of
which we have just received a
fresh supply. We can furnish
these in three sizes now, the
new size being a smaller and
cheaper edition of the others.

surface exceptionally so, and
the price very low indeed.
