TVEDSESDAr, SEPTEMBER 28, 1681.
"We ore glad to be able ogrun to report
favorably of tho condition of President
Garfield. After consnltation, tlie President's
medical advisers decided that tho
patient might bo removed from tho "White
House. This was accomplished on the
Gth of September, and "Washington dates
of tho 8th report that tho slight feverish
symptoms which showed thcmselvus
shortly after the President's arrival at
Long Branch had abated, and his condition
improved, so that wo hope again to
bo able to report favorably of the prospects
of complete restoration. If a good
constitution, unbounded patience and
pluck, and tho hopes and good wishes of 1
all Christendom can weigh in his favor ho
has them all.
Plcce, as we understand tho word, is
an unknown quality with Chinamon, in a
physical sense. Their nature is to herd
together, if their intention is to act on the
offensive. Anyone who has handled them
knows that under provocation however
great, they will not lift a finger unless the
odds are very much in their favor, or their
opponent or opponents at a disadvantage.
This of course relates to cases where
there is a difference of race, more
dally with referenco to the whitcman.
Among themselves it may bo different, in
fact cases of words coming to blows aro J
not unfrequent in Chinese quarters on ;
plantations, and elsewhere, and where it is
simply man to man. Cut a case of a i
Chinaman being alone in a room with a '
whiteman, and being the aggressor in a
quarrel is certainly unique. Free use of (
a whip or tho practice of tho noblo art of '
"Tom Rnroro" tl, TWi.; Rm-"'
among a field gang is not in the least conducive f
to a better standard of work.
There tho man only is touched, and the
Celestial's tender point is his pocket.
Surely it is better to abide by the law and
have a man punished in a way that he
feels, which punishment has a beneficial
result, than to over-step the law, and not
obtain that result. There aro ways of
getting tho full work out of a Chinese
gang, openly and fairly understood
by tho men, and those, in authority ovei
them, who are pugilistically inclined art
either too quick tempered or have not
sufficient brains combined with pugilistic
instinct to think them out Men have
been heard to relate in a self satisfied sort
of way their experience of rough and
tumble fights with Chinamen, how thoy
sailed into a crowd of fifty, forty, thirty
or whatever the number might bo, and
how they knocked down ten, fifteen or
twenty, and tho rest fled. A noblo boast
truly, when tho majority of whitemen are
from early school days accustomed to use
their hands for fighting purposes, and tt
the handling of weapons. Science against
nothing, not oven " pluck."
"We havo much satisfaction in learning
that considerable interest was excited Ln
our leader of Sept 14th on tho housing of
tho native inhabitants of this city. I
may interest somo of our readers to hear
that we havo a second timo explored the
slums between Maunakea street and tho
river, and on this occasion by night "Wo
visited several houses, invariably small,
dirty and in very bad repair, mostly overcrowded,
and in every instance with tho
doors and windows closed. Thero can bo
no doubt that tho natives live under far
less healthy conditions than they did
thirty years ago. There were then no
tight board fences between tho yards; tho
houses were mode of grass, allowing freo
ventilation, with adequate shelter, and tho
floors were composed of thick piles of
mats. The peoplo could not keep tho
fresh air out and tho foul smells in, as
they do now; water was comparatively
scarce, at least it had to be fetched by
hand; vegetation was scanty, the yards
not being flooded by perpetually dribbling
taps; and tho whole area covered by
buildings was not ono vast cesspool.
Can nothing be done with this "Five
Points" of Honolulu T "We presume it is
useless to appeal to the property-owners.
Thoy would probably here, as elsewhere,
disclaim tho responsibility of being their
brothers' keepers. Tho Board of Health,
with the best intentions, can do little.
They cannot keep a forco of officers to
watch tho windows and taps, and make
the peoplo keep the one open and 'the
other shut They cannot tear down and
rebuild tho dirty, rotten shanties, or insist
that the floors shall bo at least so many
feet above tho ground. Thoy cannot kill
off tho troops of mangy dogs that share
Qic uedo with th rhildren. For a strong
paternal government this would bo a
grand opportunity, but our own may still
do a great deal. It may at least apply
to the Legislature for authority to order
the destruction of tho present dwellings,
and tho rearrangement of new ones with
streets and spaces; or if that is too much,
at least for the Board of Health to order
tho destruction of any particular dwelling
that in tho judgment of the Board, or its
proper agents, is unfit for human habitation.
It is a recognized principle that individual
convenience must yield to public
needs. Hence in civilized countries vaccination
is enforced by law upon those
who dislike to submit to it A man is free
to get small-pox if he chooses, but is not
allowed by his liability to catch it to endanger
other people. "Were a railroad
needed through tho town, there could bo
no hesitation about taking people's land
for the purpose. But hero the need is,
not to take away people's property, but to
insist on their making decent use of it
It is to forbid property-owners lodging
human beings where they would be
ashamed to stable their horses. "We trust
that the public interest now aroused to
this matter will not bo allowed to drop,
but that an opinion will grow und ripen
so strong that a hygienic revival will take
place, -when we, as a community, shall repent
of our sins ugainst social and physiological
laws. Then the foul dens of
disease and immorality will be swept
in order to accommodate the plaintiff dHrinRa away, and not only the palaces, but tho
SXaScfolicufi S f Honolulu will add to the

Mast of the greatest evils of life aro
caused by men's own fault; many are inevitable
but mavbe greatly reduced in
power by human forethought. In tho latter
class is the fever which eTery year
visits this city and claims more or fewer
victims. As to tho cause of the fever there
aro varying opinions among thoso best
qualified to form them. The
observers appear to assign for cause
some peculiar state of tho atmosphere,
favoring the generation and spread of
malaria which varies in poisonous power,
according to tho changes in these climatic
influences. Two years ago heavy rains
followed, a very long hot and dry season
then there was a prolonged alternation of
southerly winds with calms. "Wo all of us
remember tho dreadful smells from the
htrbor, pervading tho town as far as
Beretania street when the wind blow, and
tho strange appearance of Honolulu when
the calms prevailed. Horning after morning
a dense haze hung over nil tho smoko
from tho chimney roso straight up and
spread out like a pino treo. Probably the
oldest inhabitant never saw our fair city
in such a plight. This year tho temperature
has been unusually low, thero have boon
constant showors with roro heavy rains
tho trade wind has blown steadily end
thus far tho cases of fever have been few
and mostly mild.
Eetuming to two years ago, it is noticeable
that tho fever provailod not only in
Honolulu but 0Ter md even
hero that tho cases were not a few in
places high up in tho valley and supplied
waterj not from tho taps, but from
springs. Thus there can bo no doubt
that the chief causes of tho fever wero
out of tho reach of human hands, but wo
may fairly ask whether thoy were not
aided and intensified by our own neglect
of hygienic precautions. Wo have always
to remember that Honolulu stands
on one largo ccsspooL Tho filth of fifty
years has been put into tho ground till
oven tho capacity of blackband for absorption
must have long ago be'en ex
hausted, besides that, the heavy rains have

contents to flow over tho adjacent surface
there to deconinoso. Ihero can bo no
doubt that the accumulations from all
these collections of foulness, mingling
with the malaria must havo greatly increased
its power and malignancy.
Happily this great ovil of increasing nc
cumulations of filth has at last been put
atop-to. Tho oderless excavator is constantly
to bo seen on its rounds, and will,
wo fully believe, proo a great blessing to
tho town. No one hos now any oxcuso for
allowing filth to collect on his premises.
"Wo hopo tho Board of Health will exercise
ita powers with unrolenting sternness,
not only in punishing people who
let their cesspools fill up, but who allow
rubbish to accumulate in their yards, and
their ground to bo saturated with water
from carelessly managed taps.
Be it well remembered that wo aro only
at tho beginning of tho fovcr season already
wo havo had a great change of climate
shown by tho frequency of colds
during the last two or three weeks. Let
us do all we can to assist tho authorities
in maintaining tho cleanliness of tho
town. Let us keep our yards freo from
foul smells of every kind and from too
dense nn undergrowth of small plants.
Let us filter our water properly before we
drink it," bo prudent in matters of food
and clothing and then if tho plague ap
pears ana wo suuer m our persons or
families, wo should at least escape tho
dreadful bitterness of the thought, had
wo been wiser, this might not havo
It may be considered wo supposo, that
tho election campaign has fairly commenced,
and that the speeches of tho Hon.
S. Kaai at Hilo, of tho Hon. J. "W. Kalua
at "Wailuku, and of others aro intended to
rcpresont the lino laid down for tho
speakers themsolves and for thoso whom
they can influence is very clearly indicated
by the utterances referred to. "Wo
await with seme curiosity not unmixed
with anxiety tho further dovelopemcnts
of the tactics to be employed, and the
questions to be propounded by tho various
would-be leaders of public opinion, bo
their leadership self-conferred or otherwise.
The independence of the Kingdom
is tho great Shibboleth put forward by all
parties, and yet it seems to us that thero
are many who attempt the use of this
testword, who yet ore only oblo to pronounce
it in an imperfect and halting
manner. Tho wholo press, nativo and
foreign upholds tho desire for tho maintenance
of Hawaiian independence, but
there are wide differences as to the manner
in which this much desired aspiration
is to be realized. To some, this independence
appears to bo tho independence of
tho native population from any influence,
legitimate or other, which may lie in tho
power of their foreign fellow-citizens, foreign
we mean by birth or descent but lawfully
qualified Hawaiian citizens nevertheless.
"Wo are sorry to see a man of the
talents and ability, and weight with the
native Hawoiians, of the Hon. S. Kaai
leading the way in the attempt to oxcludo
"foreigners" from tho Houso of Representatives,
and that the Hon. J. "W. Kalua
should speak of so largo a numbe? of his
fellow-citizens as " enemies," though this
latter is tho direct result of such teaching
as that of tho EltU in its earlier issues.
Again tho Ko Ilavaii Pae Aina reminds its
readers that tho native, voters havo it in
their power to elect tho Bepresentatives,
and adjures them to bo careful to retain
this power in their own hands : we do not
think it would bo unfair to interpret this
reminder as meaning: " We, native
have, by dint of numbers, the uhole
elective power, and can if wo will return
the trAofe Bopresentativo chamber; let us
use this power for tho absolute exclusion
of all but ourselves, let not well-proved
loyalty to tho Crown and Constitution of
this Kingdom, let not intelligence, educa
tion, property or any other stake in tho
Kingdom weigh against native blood, let
not a foreigner by birth, or descent even,
Lave any weight in tho councils of the
nation, let bis rights bo repudiated, his
race be unrepresented and his interests be
ignoredP How else are wo to understand
utterances such as these. It does' not
Boom to occur to theso speaker, that the
fathers of these foreigners were they who
Jjronght the knowledge of Christianity
and civilization, representative forms of
Government amongst other benefits, to
the fathers of thoso whom they now call
upon to exclude foreigner from political
rights. The fact is, that national independence
can only be assured by national
justice and uprightness between citizen
and citizen, whatever may have been the
nationality of their fathers. All the talking
and writing about buying, selling,
mortgaging these Islands which has been
revived in the course of the last twelve
month" is directly due, and was most
certa'nly called forth by tho political
events which took placo here little more
than a year ago. Let us have able,
responsible independent representatives,
and if then any one race should outweigh
another, it will only prove that it is the
worthier of tho two. As to whom tho Ko
llaaaii Pae iiina is referring tof in tho
statement that some of other nationalties
"actually beg for office togetthoir
own interests " forwarded, we will
A costempoeaby takes exception to somo
remarks which appeared last week, reflecting
upon tho capabilities of a portion
of tho members of the Legislature. Ho
further goes on to state that " it can bo
clearly demonstrated that tho doportmont
of tho Hawaiian legislators will compare
most favorably with the most enlightened
representative bodies in tho world" and
then proceeds to cito an instance from tho
American National Representative Chamber.
It is sajd that a Mr. Hooker was
drunk and that the members of tho Legislature
gathered round him " like heedless
boys " and laughed. "Wo havo not come
across this case, and aro not prepared to
weigh tho report as quoted in our contemporary;
it may or may not bo correct:
but certainly our friend has taken by no
means a good instance, our Houso has not
been clear of intoxicated men; on one occasion
last session, report says, that an
intoxicated man addressed the Houso; tvo
put it in tho words " a report says, " but
we had our information at the time upon
I yery good authority. Thon again, we
,iVonId cnll QUr contomporajy's attention
sto fl corta;n cnvelopo which wag put upon
tho desk of the Honorable Member for
Makawao, tho opening of which by that
Honorable gentlemen resulted in his turning
round and punching another Hon-
orablo gentlemen in somo part of his faco.
At tho time theso things occurred wo re
trained from speaking of them, it was ill
to show up faults of individual members,
and fasten them upon tho wholo Houso;
but when our contemporary tries to
palliato tho proceedings of our Honorablo
Legislative body by quoting an abnormal
instauco from tho Congress of the United
States, wo fool obliged to bpecify a deed
or two which has occurred hero. No ono
imagines that tho American Congress
habitually has members in it, who behave
in tho way Mr. Hooker is said to havo
dono; and it was far from our intention to
insinuate that the procerdingi of our legislators
wero not properly conducted. Wo
wero of opinion, and aro of opinion still,
that many of tho men who filled" tho position
of representatives in tho last Legislature
wero totally unlit to deal with the
questions that came before thorn. "Wo
wish to seo in tho xioxt Legislature members
who aro fitted for their position.
Largo interests are involved, and wo
would have thoso inteiests properly set
forth before men who aro capablo of judging
what the outcome of their legislation
may bo. If wo happen to wish to buy a
picture wo do not go to a man who has,
all his life, been engaged in digging potatoes
and chawing bacon, for ad vice ; wo go
to a man who knows something about art
But if on tho other hand wo have to adjudicate
upon the taxation of tho realm, if
we aro to pronounco upon tho foreign
policy of tho Kingdom, if wo are to
further tho prosperity of tho nation, then
wo aro by means to choose from anyono
who has studied tho principles of political
economy, who is acquainted with tho re
sources of tho land ho is living in, who
understands clearly, not only what aro
tho needs of his country, but what aro ho
best methods of supplying thoso needs,
who has watched tho failures of other and
greater countries in tho present and has
become conversant with tho mistakes that
have been mado in them in the past: by
no means: such a man ought not to go to
the legislature: ho would spoil tho de
bates : tho half-informed man is tho propo
person; tho" man who has little or no
knowledge of public affairs, who can bo
easily led by ono or two powerful and
well-informed minds, who will vote
steamer subsidy bills and will listen
to tho magnificent schemo of introducing
1,000,000 Chinamen at 7 a head and so
producing a revenue to tho country of
7,000,000. This is the man that is
wanted. Tho" sooner, tho maxim that tho
next Legislature bo chosen "to redeem
the character of its predecessor" is appreciated,
the bettor. "Wo say this in all
good faith; wo aro strongly Hawaiian in
our sympathies; wo take tho greatest in
terest in tho fortunes and in the happiness
of tho native race. Wo wish them to
havo all tho legislative power that is just,
but ut tho somo time we must be just to
tho while man also; ho too must havo Ms
word as to how the taxes of this country
are to bo spent: ho who is paying tho
bulk of tho taxes, who is enlarging tho
prodnctivo capacity of tho country by his
energy and his capital must have his say
upon all legislative matters. Thero is
justico on both sides: we do not wish to
see an entirely Nativo Houso, wo would
strongly oppose an entirely foreign House
of Representatives; wo hopo to seo both
parties represented and udl represented.
The streugth of this country lies in the
nativa and ill the foreigner going hand in
hand; it is tho old fabla of the bundle of
sticks; there aro many who Eeek to divide,
sometimes thoso who clamor loudest for
unity ore the very ones who desire dissolution.
"Wo do not clamor, wo would offer
calm, solid advice, based upon good information
and upon, sound reflection, and
our advice is united action between nativo
and foreigner to obtain a goodLegisIature.
The matter is far more important than
even, some of our politicians think.

needed, but there should bo a protector for each

is nothing in this world that is not the better for
a htUe supervision, and we doubt whether sugar
plantations are better than the average of human
enterprises. Cases of wrong and oppression are
frequently hnahed up, in the country police courts,
which, were they brought before the tribunals
here, would receive a more searching investigation,
and prould even in the country polioe courts if it
vras known that the government inspectors was
watching the case. Men to fill such positions
would bo hard to find, but we think they could te
found and we feel assured that they would do a
great deal of good.
It is satisfactory to see what strenuous efforts
the Government is making to gather in the lepers;
a very largo number havo been collected and sent
to Molokai lately. This is as it should be. It is a
terrible thing to have to do, bat it mast be done,
and it ought to bo dona thoroughly. How necessary
such a clearing up of our lepers was,
by the fart, that several of the unfortunates
it ere in very advanced stages of tho
disease. Ono old man especially was quite unable
to walk or stand up in consequence of his malady.
.These advanced cases ought to have been taken
up n year or n year and a half ago. It is a positive
sin that they were not, and there is no doubt
that some one has neglected his daty in the matter.
We earnestly trust that the Government will
remain firm In this matter, that thoy will try to
collect nil the cases that can be found, and above
all things thoy will remain on the watch and as
fresh chkcs appctr. remove tho risk of contagion
at once. It is only by unremitting attention that
any real progress will be made, A firm hand
nhonld comparatively free us of the disease within
An exchange gives us some particulars of th
condition of leprosy in Louisiana. The annua
report of the Board of Health of that State, givoi.
an account of the progress of leprosy within its
borders. "It was brought in 1630 to the West
Indies by the negro slaves, and thence to Louisiana.
In 1779 this diseaso was so prevalent amom
the blacks, togetherwith the African elephantiasis
nud. another equally horrible, named yaws, peck
liar to Guinea negroes, that a hospital for leper
was established in New Orltans. At tho presen
time the majority of lepers in that city are fount
to be whites, of French and liussian extraction
The disease seems to be hereditary, and. certai
families are known to be infected by it and ar
shunned as corpses would be, conld thoy walk ant
move and spread about the contagion of death.
The mother of one of those families, when the
disease showed itself, was deserted by busbant
and children, and nursed until her death by
young girl who now is a victim to it. An Italia!
Catholio priest who attended cases of leprosy it
the Chanty Hospital is now dying of it in tin
same house. New Orleans, it appears, has n
separate asylum for these incurable patients, am
they aro received into the Charity Hospital am
placed in the crowded wards to scatter death.
Our country, however neglectful it may at time
have been, can make a far better showing for itsel
than this. The lepers seem to congregate intb
swamps of tho lower Bayou Laf onche. Tho Presi
dent of the Board of Health visited this district
and found "Asiatic leprosy existing indifferent
generations of six families ; some of theso wretch.
ed creatures have been driven out from human
habitation, and are living apart in tho swamps,
dying of decay. In some insensible as bone, and
they wero able to handle fire with impunity. It
was impossible to make a correct estimate of their
numbers, as a rumor spread among them that tho
searching party had come to carry them off to an
uninhabited island of the sea, and they hid themselves,
their friends, too, refusing to tell their
names or numbers.
Soint remarks upon tho traders of England,
made by Mr. Hughes, of TomTirown's school day's
fame, aro perhaps applicable to other nations as
well. No one who has read "Tom Brown," will
tiil to remember tho manly tone of that story, and
Mr. Hughes life has alwajs been up to that of his
ideal, but then ltugby and ita society is apt to
need men, and what is more to inspire a love for
man as man, with all his faults and his imperfections
about him. Dear Alma Mater, we can never
be too thankful for what we drew from your instructions
"Trade on the old lines, encaged in as a mere
wealth producing machine, is becoming distasteful
to those who live by it.
"This may seem a startling assertion in the faco
of the open and unabashed property worship, or,
to call it by its right name, mammon worship of
onr time; trade being still at any rate the handiest
method of making money. Sorely, ono may bo
told, if you won't believe your own eyes, or can
see the things which lie under your own nose, you
may, at any rate, unless yon are deaf also, hear
something of what the wisest seers amongst us
English have been telling ua for the last fifty
years. Let ns listen for a minute to him who has
so recently left us. 'Tho word Hell,' says Mr.
Carlyle, 'is still frequently in use amongst the
English people, but I could not without difficulty
Ascertain what they meant by it. Hell generally
signifies the infinite terror, the thing a man is infinitely
afraid of, and BhudJera at and shrinks
from, struggling. with his wbolo sou! to escape
from. With Christians it is the infinite terror of
being found guilty before the Just Judge. And
now what is it if you pierce through his cants, his
oft-repeated hearsays what he calls his worships;
what is it that the modem English sou does in
very truth dread infinitely and contemplate with
entire despair? What it his Hell ; after all theso
reputable oft-repeated hearsays, what is it? With
hesitation, with astonishment, I pronounce it to be
tho terror of not succeeding; of not making money,
fame, or some other figure in tho world; chiefly of
not making money. Is not that a somewhat
T 'Dig down where you will, through the
Parliament floor or elsewhere, how infallibly do
you, at spado's depth below the surface, come upon
this liar's rock substratum! Much else is ornamental;
tree on barrel beads, in pulpits, hustings,
puliamentary benches, but this is forever true and
truest. 'Money does bring money's worth; put
money in jour parse. Here, if nowhere else, is
the human Bord still in thorough earnest, emcera
with a prophet's sincerity, and 'the Hell of the
English,' as Sauertieg said, ts the infinite terror of
not getting on, especially of not making money.' "
