The morning organ takes particular
care not to publish Hon. Cccu nrown'g
reply to tho open letter of S. M. Ual
lou. Fair minded, honest treatment of
any question before tho people Is not to
bo found and never has been founu
among the cllquo dictating tho utter
anccs of the organ.
Quo has only to read the morning
organ's garbled one sided mlsreprescn
tatlon of last night's commltteo meet
Ingto draw nn easy conclusion as to the
actual machln that Is trying to run the
affairs of tho Republican Party. As
tho pcoplo well know It Is n machine
that will carry any party which It con
trols to Ignominious defeat at tho polls.
Tho morning organ says tho "host
membcis" of tho committee were op
posed by obstructionists. Are T. Mo
Cants Stewart and Qcorgo It. Carter
considered by the people, tho voters ot
this Tenltory, ns tlio only citizens en
titled to bo crowned with the halo ot
"best members?" The teachings of tin
great American stuffed prophet, Grover
Cleveland, have no place In the Re
When tho Jackass Pi ess charges
Hon. Cecil Hrown and S. M. Uallou
with being partners In th ctnachluc
crime, it is would Indicate that this
machine nlghtmaic of party traltois Is
In the hands of pretty good men. The
sinister motives and dishonest meth
ods of the organ having bsen proved to
the public, the mouthpiece of Jealousy
and spite attacks the integrity of the
men who havo wrought Its downfull
and whose standing In this community
makes the combined attacks of the or
gan a laughing stock.
Tllli lAHTY FIRST.
Although the moiiitng organ is exert
Ing its ponderous effort for tho rule or
ruin ot tho Republican Party In these
Islands, tho only real dllTcrence there is
among honest members ot the Party is
tho degreo of allegiance which should
bo required of tho men taking part In
the present preliminary organization
Difference of opinion on this point
dates ns far back In American history
as tho first party organization. Yet
every party whlcn has gained any de
gree of success has found It absolutely
necessary to demand strict adherence
to party discipline.
What tho organizers have to deter
mine Is whether they will accept as Re
publicans and allow tho party to bo
controlled by a class of citizens who
hold lightly their allegiance to the
party principles, whoso political con
clusions nro determined by their
chances ot being on tho winning side,
not by tho purity of party principle
round In party history and party meth
ods throughout tlio nation.
It is said that the Territory has a
large number of Intelligent citizens of
tender consciences. From tho political
standpoint tho men with such delicacy
of conscience nro but strangers here;
tho haven of bigotry Is their homo.
Their consciences are tender merely
on tho point of whether they can run
things to Bult themselves. They are
reany to jump to tho Democratic parly
at any time their personal opinions am
crossed or defeated by tho will of tho
This method of procedure is fully
In keeping with Iho pa3t political meth
ods lu Hawaii. Men havo been any
thing nnd everything, taken oaths to
suit tho occasion if reasonable assur
ance were given they would bo on
tho winning side. It Is to do away with
the hypocilsy of tho past that tho for- j
matlon ot political division on the
strict lines of allcslanco demanded by
American patty principle will accom-1
pllsn tho best results towards Amcrl-'
cnnlzlng the politics of this Territory. '
Let the Republicans declare them
selves, let tho uolters declare them
selves, yet tho people who are ready
overthrow principle In order to gain a
personal point dcclnre themselves and
It will take but a Bhort time for tho
pcoplo to dctcrmlno whom they can
Tho men of "intelligence" who are
Republicans today and Independents or
Democrats tomorrow are standing on
exactly tho same platform with tho '
forces of tho ward heeler who will
change their politics for a drink. Tho
principle enunciated by tho Party Is as
nothing to them. They cannot believe
that God has placed tho right to speak
or rulo In the hands of any one outside
their select circle.
BELL TOWER AND BELL
"In the silence of tho night, how It
rang out Its affright," to adapt tho
lines of Poc, old residents will remem
ber of the bell that used to give the
fire alarms from the old bell tower.
Tho Roll Tower, ns tho central flro
station .that preceded the present
handsome structure on nnothcr slto
was called, with the buildings (tanking
it on cither side, being In process of
demolition, n flood ot reminiscences
comes upon the veterans of tho for
mer volunteer lire department. It is
seldom that so many old landmarks
within n single set ot associations dis
appear almost simultaneously ns hap
pens with the houses of that organiza
tion. Within a few days of each other, No.
1 company's home, while In use by n
detachment of the pnld department, Is
wiped out by the sanitary torch, and
China engine company's snug and sub
stantial structure, latterly tho head
quarters ot tno department's chemical
engine, goes down In tho torrent of i
flame that gets beyond control from tho
same oilgln. Yes. and tho native Ha
waiian company's house, old and gal-
lant No. 4, Is obliterated in the samo
dcry deluge. Now comes tho head-1
quarters of tho volunteers, passing out
of sight forever to mako room for a I
comely fabric of New Honolulu. t
John A. Hasslngcr, a former Chief
Engineer of the Honolulu Fire Depart
ment, has been methodically preserving
the historical data of tho volunteer or
ganization all these years. They aro
tho makings of nn Interesting book.
Tho following memoranda nre gleaned
from Mr. Hasslngcr s records:
The new bell ordered by tho volun
teer fire department was received here
Juno 2(, 1SC0, In the steamer Idaho.
Its weight was 101S lbs. It was cast
at West Troy, N. Y and cost S300.
Upon Its nrrlvnl the department ap
pointed a committee to solicit subscrip
tions to build n proper tower. Tho
citizens came forward liberally and,
ildcd by a benefit given by Lee & Ry
and's circus with gloss receipts of over
1400, the tower was soon an assured
It was creeled between the houses of
Protection Hook & Ladder Co. nnd
Mechanic Engine Co. No. . The archi
tect and builder was James Rcnton,
now one of the most successful sugar
planteis cf these Islands, and the dato
of contract was October 16, 1SC9. The
lower was 75 feet high, hexagonal In
shape, and 15 feet diameter at tho base.
Room was made for a city clock that
never materialized, tho openings ot
which wcro later filled with colored
glass. It is noted that the Pacific Com
mercial Advertiser, then a weekly
owned by Hon. H. M. Whitney Btlll
with us hale nnd hearty, offeri.il $100
toward tho tower fund.
C. E. Williams was Chief Engineer.
and J. A. Hasslnger First Assistant
Engineer, both gentlemen being today
active men of a flairs, whllo tho Sec
ond Assistant Engineer was tho late
Tlios. Hughes, original owner of tho
Honolulu Iron Works. At this tlma
Mr. Hasslnger prepared tho first chart
dividing the city Into five wards, which
was adopted by tho department Tho
lntercsctlon of Fort and Hotel streets
was made the center, nnd the city di
vided Into four wards, n fifth being
for vessels In tho harbor.
