We are neither a missionary nor the sou
f a missionary, and we object to the prac
tice which began in early days of Hawaii,
when saihirs and traders so generally
threw off all pretense of self restraint, of
classifying as 'niis.sionaries,"' all who be
lieve or profess to believe in purity of life
It has come to this that every social,
rajtitieal. or bnsinessjreeliooter who comes
here la-gins straightway to declaim against
everything as truvionnrj- which inter
aises any restraint ujon his sensualism
or selfishness. To hear the talk of the Bo
hemian, or marauding class to which we
refer, one might think that there is no
sulnrrjess of living, no devotion to prind
)ile,rjoliatnaof corruption in government,
no regard for decency, no high ideal of
what i right no hungering or thirsting
for whatever things are lovely, true and
of gcaal rej-jrt, eicept with missionaries.
The ojtposition to Moreno as a Prime Viz
i.T. was by him ascribed to the same class.
It is "mis.sionaries'' who urge reform in
government who insist njan a sound cur
rency, who oppose monopoly and denounce
loltroonery. cowardice and toadyism in
Even Hawaiians have got so that they
call everything " mikineri,'' which does
not harmonize with licentiousness. It is
not alone the professedly irreligious, it is
also those who scoff Bt the notion that
principle governs or ought to goTcrn, who
regard every man as ptirchasable, who in
dalge themselves and listeners with enrses
against those "raissionaries."
Now we do not propose to discuss the
merits car demerits ot those worthy men
and women who undertook to introduce
Christianity to the Hawaiians. If they
made mistakes, were often greviously hu
man, it is equally true that, as a rule, they
were nnselhisUlj- devotod to their sacred
But it is childish to keep up this anath
ematiring of misonaries against all the
right-minded, decency-loving people in
Exactlt upon what principle the selec
tion for clerks and employees of the Gov
ernment is made seems somewhat prob
lematical When the present Cabinet
came in. there was a great flourish of
trumpets about Hawaii for the Hawaiians.
A few foreign young men who ocenpied
government posts were dismissed- a case
in point being that of Major Purvis, who
then held a tiost in the Interior Depart
ment and their places were filled by Ha
waiians or half castes.
So far as this went there was not ntnch
to la said. Supposing an Hawaiian born
has equal ability with a foreigner he cer
tainly has a greaierclaim and should have
the vacant post Whenever we make ol
jection to an Hawaiian office holder, our
objections are not made on account of race,
but on account of gross incompetence.
The lixzmi has made no reflection upon
the appointment of CoL Iankea to the
Custom House, because in him it believes
there is the making of an able man. We
condemn Mr. Kapeaa, for incapacity, be
cause his incapacity is notorious, just as
we condemn the Alinister of Foreign Affairs
for venality and falsehood, because these
things are also plain; or as we condemn
Mr. Spreckels for his monopoly schemes
as being opposed to the true interests of
the community at large.
But a change has come over the spirit of
the dream. The Government positions
are sow co longer filled from the ranks of
native Hawaiians or of foreigners born
here. It is easier for a scoundrel who has
run off with five or six thousand dollars,
for a rascal who has swindled his friends,
to find bread and butter in Aliiolani Hale,
than it is for the sons of native or of old
It looks as if it was the intention ol tbe
-resent administration to "make this the
'lomcof the "dead beats" of San Francisco.
We have no hesitation in charging the
Cabinet with having in their employ men
who are under strong suspicion of dishon
esty. The Government service should be such
that not a breath can rest upon the repu
tation of those in their employ. When
men without character are employed what
kind of a service can the people expect'
Emploving those who are known here, the
public tare some guarantee, for it is harder
for a young man to go astray among his
own people, than it is when he is abroad.
Yon have the family influence upon him.
l'ick tip a waif and stray and what do von
ri'V! Occasionally you get a Phoenix, but
usually a thorough paced scoundrel. Ha
waii for the Hawaiians,' as far as the Min
istrv are concerned is & dead cry: they
have adopted the motto of 'Hawaii for
San Francisco" From the cxtraonlinary
snccess which several broken men of
that city have met with here, and the
cheerful amount of patronage they have
obtained, we may look forward to the ar
rival of a corps of -Clfri)ir if aJa.fnV
or to speak in plain English, an armyof
bums, tramps and downright thieves. The
policy of the present Cabinet is to invite
the invasion, and no doubt the good news
is spreading like wildfire.
Honest men are not wanted, thieves are
scarce here, the only thing left for the ad
ministration is to fall hack npon the ras
cals it can import
Thiee is something insidious in the rec
ommendation of the Adtfttifer that the
drainage of Honolulu should be made to go
on simnltaneouslv wit h the increased water
supply, or in otter words that the latter
be deferred until ways and means are
available for the former undertaking.
It is quite true that the city i in need
of loth water and drainage, but the im
provement of the water supply must take
First, it is the more pressing necessity,
and money has been voted for the purpose
by two successive Legislatures. During
the stagnation of such works as these, con
sequent on tho incumbency of the -various
Ministers who have held office in the In
terior and Finance departments for tho
last three years, until a few days ago little
had been done towards improving the water
supplv, bnt littering the road-side with
cosJy piping. Xow however, a plan has
been adopted which will keep the lower
Nr. nan u reservoir supplied, and release the
numerous households dependent on it
from the frequently increasing periods of
absolute water famine. After prolonged
gestation a scheme for enlarging the
storage of water has been indicated and
tenders called for. The proposed plan
appears practical and judicious, and might
be carriea out if honestly intended. The
bids for the whole or specified portions of
the work were to be in the Interior Otfico
by the 2Sth February, now fully a month
tvist As many as eight or nine bids have
tieeu lodged with the Minister of Interior
from contractors in this country, but the
work was also advertised in San Francisco,
for what reason does not clearly appear.
Xo award has hitherto been made known,
and meanwhile some scores of our ablest
mechanics have left the country The re
cent building works of Messrs. Campbell,
and Irwin & Co. being completed, and no
farther prospect of continuous work offer
ing, the men have necessarily taken them
selves and their abilities to a more prom
ising market It does not seem clear why
San Francisco was invited to compete, un
til it was proved that Honolulu mechanics
or Honolulu capital were insufficient
The Joss ot a hundred or a hundred and
fifty mechanics is a very serious loss to
this coantiy. and the delay occasioned by
waiting for foreign bids is another serious
loss. We need tie additional storage as
speedily as possible.
Meanwhile with regard to both storage
of water and sanitation of the city, iVm'a
measures might be easily and advantage
ously adopted. Water has even been
brought from the Kapena pool and stored
in the old reservoir with positive ndvan
tugenot only to tho consumers but to
those who will undertake to construct the
new reservoirs, but this by no means solves
rt ith regard to the removal of decaying
animal and vegetable refuse a creat ad
vance might le made by the establishment
of a scientifically constructed furnace or
cremator! tun where cveyihing readily com
bustible should be-day by day- consumed,
this might be done at a small expense com
pared to the benefit to bo gained.
To thoroughly drain Honolulu would be
an enormously difficult, costly and time
consuming undertaking. Tbe whole city
and its suburbs are so little above the sea
level, that drainage by mere gravitation is
impracticable. The nse and fall of tide in
the harbor is so slight, that tho, tides sup
ply no scour, and if the drainage of the
city could convey the sewage into tie bar
bor- there it wonld remain- till it was
gradually silted up. Indeed this process is
now going on. The deposit of the Xuu
anu stream and the street gutters requiro
TTnn- ,!... -.,-. ;.- ,l,n
nre of the city and suburbs, nothing but
an enormous system of pumping engine
could deal with it, and to render this effect
ive or even practicable, a large supplv ot
water must be provided beforehand. Hero
we are, with households frequently de
prived of water for merelv domestic nur
poses, with a lack of water whenever a fire
occurs in the wooden-built, shingle-roofeil
town, how then can we carry, for it must
be carried, and carried by water, tbe sewage
of 20,W0 people to a safe dittance.withan
almost tiueless harbor!
The idea put forward by the organ that
additional water supply must produce ad
ditional nnwholesomeness is absurd. Tho
water is tbe prime necessity.
But, over and above all this lies the dis
trust which is dominant with all sections
of the people as to the honesty of that
which is here called the Government In
other countries a corrupt or incapable
official is dismissed by pnblic opinion,
here, an incorrupt and capable official will
probably be dismissed for those very qual
ifications. The city cannot la drained without n
large expenditure of money, the money
would havo to bo raised by loan, nnd no
body will lend to this Government
For additional water supply and storago,
money has been liberally voted, let us sec
the fruits of this money before we are
asked for more.
"We dread this Government even when
offering a boon.
Last week the very limited time avail
able rendered it wholly impracticable to
render any justice to the extremely inter
esting and instructive lectnredeliveredby
Professor Wayland at the 1JL(XA. rooms
on Tuesday evening.
The subject was, to a Honolulu audience,
novel, and to many, of peculiar interest.
A delightfully plain unadorned descrip
tion of the scope, the power, the methods
of working of the British House of Com
mons, the parent, and to this day in many
rpects the exemplar of all national delib
erative bodies on the earth.
Having calmly and clearly discussed the
general characteristics of the Commons
House of Parliament, the Professor gave
a rapid though not careless sketch ot the
two men for so many years the leaders on
opposite sides, Mr. Gladstone and- Mr.
The lecturers sympathies wer mani
festly with the former, though his moder
ation and evident love of justice did not
suffer him to be positively nfljust yet there
were points made for one and" omitted
from the. other which if more equally dwelt
upon might have given a better idea of the
two great Statesman
On behalf of Mr. Gladstone were quota!
several important measures with which
that Minister's name is identified, as for
instance the Disestablishment of tho
Church in Ireland, the Irish Land Acts,
the Education bill, and the abolition of
purchase in the Army.
Mr. Gladstone began his public lite as a
high Tory and nncompromising upholder
of the vital importance of the union be
tween Church and State. He has since
then destroyed that Union as far as Ire
land is concerned, and talked of the same
process in England, as becoming ""within
the range of practical politics.
It is not intended here to discuss the
righteousness or wisdom of such measures
but only to point out that what is accepted
as the gradual development of enlightened
opinions conscientiously followed, in one
man's case, should not be interpreted as
conscienceless lack of principle in another.
Disraeli began as a radical, thence

B'rah regard to the Education Acta, it is
true that England was behind most other
countries in education by centralired gov
ernment, bnt it would seem absurd to sug
gest that general education in England
was behind that in Portugal. Spain. Italy,
Austria, Russia, or even France: and more
over the bunlen and neat 01 uie eusung
plan was borne by, and should bo credited
to Mr. Forsier rather than to Mr. Glad
stone. Withreganltotheabolitionof purchase,
it may or may not have been the abolition
of an" abuse. Opinions amongst the best
informed on tho subject differed so widely,
that Mr. Gladstone, unable to passhisbill
through Parliament discovered and fur
bished up an antique and almost forgotten
prerogative and decreed the abolition by
Royal Warrant Had this been done by a
"Tory" a good deal would have been heard
about reactionary or imperialist government
Ot the racifvinir effects of Mr. Glad
stone's Irish policy, which includes a
couple of stringent "coercion" Acts, every
mail brings us intelligence, from Phornix
park: or ine xower 01 jjonaon, or 11 esi-minster.
Fort v-four years aco. Jlacaulay des
cribed Gladstone's style of speaking, as
"rhetoric often good of its kind, which
darkens and perplexes the logia it should
illustrate." Again: "He has one gift most
dangerous to a speculator, a vast command
of a kind of language, gravo and majestic,
but of vague and uncertain import" Xo
description of Mr. Gladstone's spoochos
could be more apt at tne present oay.
Gladstone is the createst financier Eng
land has ever had. He is a whole-souled,
honest, supremely conscientious upright
man, a gentleman and n scholar in the
highest and best acceptation of the term.
His very failures are tho result of a deli
cacy and sensitiveness to an ideal ot ab
stract ngut and wrong, in maiu-rs 01
finance, education, reform of abuses, in
internal iiroirress. he is the greatest states
man of the age as an equivalent to for
eign statesmen with regard to foreign
affairs he is as great a failure.

bassadors was an objective point in the
vrahlie life of Disraeli. If this were so.

so unlettered ivy principle, suoum unm

Disraeli entered the House of Commons
in 1S37 a poor man, intensely ambitions
and conscious of his powers. It was not
nntil 1S.V2 that he first held Cabinet nor
until 1S6S that he became Prime Minister.

place and power.
His was a very singularly constituted
mind, he was equally proud of his Jewish
descent and of his English citirenshin.
he reverently worshipped the grand old
ideal of his ancestors, and was passion

There is no space now on which to re
capitulate many of Disraeli's legilativi
achievements. Tho Act for repression it
bribery at elections, for the equalizatioi
of poor-rates, the acquisition of tho tele
graphs for the Pot Office, the Refornj
bill 1S07, and tho purchase ot the Snci
Canal shares, may be mentioned.
Pmfrtcsor Wnvlnnd remarked nnon til
heritige left to Sir. Gladstone by his im
mediate predecessor: it mil-lit li) iertin
ently asked, that if Mr. Gladstone's ad-'
ministration lie near its close a seems to

Down tke Home Stretch.
Coatrlbatrd by the W C T I .
Itaring men hare made this term familiar to tho
public as the name of the return half of the course,
over which tne racer sets back to the goal from
his farthest oatlnj;. It is that portion of the
whole distance which most severely tries tbe wind
and endurance, and where break-downs of tenesi
occur. Usually, he who reserved himself in going
oat is most apt to come back iu triumph.
There is a sense in which this phrase may fairly
bo applied to human life, as characterizing thoae
later rears which lead down and back from the
fartheat oat-post of mature middle life, toward
that second childhood which to those who live
long enoagb precedes and preludes tbe grave.
If threescore years and ten prolonged, by reason
of strength, to foawcore be the inspired estimate
ot the duration of human life, then between thirty,
five and forty.fire variously, according to tem
perament, constitution, and so on men turn
about, face their second infancy, and begin with
gradually increasing feeblrnesa to travel, to limp,
and finally to totter, "doarn the home stretch.'
Xow and then there stems to be neither luopuui
nor tottering, and men whose heads may' be like
the dmea oow for whiteness stride on erect and
stalwart with all their eaily robustness aboai
them, as if in defiance of Ihe law ot decrepitude.
