The incidents of the release, by
parole-pardon, of the ex-queen substantially
closes another Ecene in
the miniature historic drama of
Whether the act, urged by some,
if not many, supporters of the Government,
and finally done by the
Executive, is a wise one is no
longer open to discussion. There
need now be no quarrel with the
fact. Many good and loyal people
endorse it, many good and loyal
people do not endorse it. When
the actual hiEtory of the insurrection
of January 6th is written, and
it has not been written yet, it may
appear that those who favor leniency
advocate the wisest course.
An honest, impartial discussion of
the character of that event at the
present time would stir up bad
blood among the supporters of the
Republie. So the subject may be
left to future consideration.
While the ex-queen is now only
a citizen, she has it in her power to
do much for her own race, and
much which may command the
respect of the dominant element
here ; that is, the white alien races.
Fortunate indeed will it be for her
if she call to herself some wise adviser,
who will recommend her to
follow a few simple rules of conduct,
which will cost her nothing
but may be of great benefit to herself
personally, and of decided benefit
to the people she once ruled
over. Even the unobtrusive example
of the Queen Dowager is not an
unworthy one for her to follow.
Xo one expects that she should
clearly see the drift of political
evGnts, because she is a
Eian ; but every one can hope that
she will, without anger or malice,
accept the inevitable; that is,
make the best of it. Xo doubt the
great danger is that bad white advisers
will confuse and distract
her. The people who can really
aid her are not anxious to volunteer
their services. But experience
may have taught her that it would
be wise for her to take the pains
to consult persons whom she knows
to b6 honeBt and intelligent.
The Xation in reviewing Dr. E.
B. Underlules, "Tragedy of Morant
Bay," which is an account of the
insurrection in the island of Jamaica,
and the cruel punishment
inflicted by Governor Eyre, says :
"When two races, a stronger and a
weaker one, are brought together, the
only effectual security for peace and
equity Is the balance of justice held by
the hand of the superior and impartial
power. Representative government
in Jamaica was sure to lead to a
strife of races, to the oppression of the
weaker race. The whites, as rniuht
have been expected, got power both
legislative and judicial into their own
hands, and used it in their own interests
as a race."
The instant the Xation looks
away from the "missionary thieves
and pirates," who have, it seems,
taken possession of these islands, it
can take very just views of the relations
of weaker and stronger
races, and show most conclusively
how natural and just it is for the
stronger race to get on top. This
simple, candid and philosophic
spirit is at once disturbed, when
the question about Hawaii is raised.
The stronger race did here just
what it has done elsewhere, but the
Xation undertook, for some reason,
to foretell utter disaster to the rule
of the stronger race here, and, as a
member in good and regular standing
of the "Omniscent Club," cannot
admit that it may have been
in error. t
The Xation has nothing to say
about the " British pirates and
thieves," who govern Jamaica and
refuEe to allow its half million of
population any voice in the government.
It is - only when Hawaii is
in question that it foams at the
mouth, and it feels dreadfully sorry
over the wickedness of some white

The Advertiser, in not designating
the Portuguese as "whites,"
followed the example of several
French and, at least, one of the old
Roman, or Latin writers, who described
the races of the north of
Europe as "white" in contrast to
the darker races of southern Europe.
The distinction is not an
uncommon one, although not
The people of Wellington, New

We have something of the same
condition here. A Japanese writer
lately said, "the proud white races
are grovelling at the feet of the

case of Chinese or scurry, a3 no

A SANITARY MEASURE.
Among the many methods of
economically disposing of the
refuse matter, in towns and cities,
which have been tried during the
last few years, the use of peat moss
seems to have had the preference
in Germany. This moss, which is
found distributed over -Europe, exists
in large quantities in the
United States. In some places,
when it is compact, it is used for
fuel, as it is in Ireland. In Germany,
Holland and France it is
dried in an oven, torn up by machinery
and packed in bales, and
is valued at about $4 per ton in
Hamburg. Its chief value is its
power of absorption, as it will take
up nine times its own volume of
moisture. It has already replaced
straw bedding in the London stables,
and is gradually coming into
use in the United States. The
German government consider the
subject of such importance, that
it has established a special bureau
for encouraging its UEe in improving
the sanitary condition of
cities and towns.
If vaults were properly constructed
in the residences of this
place, and the peat moss, as prepared,
were used, there would not
only be no odor, but the refuse
would have a marketable value,
and would be removed without
difficulty. If the system was properly
introduced by the Government,
so that it was understood,
some company, certainly some Chinese
company, would undertake to
construct vaults, and remove the
contents, out of which a considerable
profit would be made.
The city of Tokyo, with its
1,500,000 inhabitants, has no drainage
system. The refuEe is received
in earthen pots, and taken by coolies
to the rice fields. For a thousand
years the rice fields have been
fertilized in this way. So long as
hand labor is cheap the system
At the present date we have
spent money in suppressing the
cholera, quite sufficient to have
placed a good system in operation
in the crowded part of the town.
The problem of sewage is not an
easy one, and most communities
prefer to "hang it up" and tackle
something easier. Besides, some
good people think that time given
to such a subject is wasted in
worldly affairs. When they lose

they attribute it to "thejnysteries
THE EAWAIAHAO CHUBCH.
Hardly a year has passed Eince
it was announced, that the roof
of the old Kawaiabao Church was
in a dangerous condition from decay,
and that it could not be replaced
without great expense.
Immediately the community
undertook the restoration. Mrs.
Haalelea and her associates, repre
senting the best element of the
native race, undertook en the one
side, with energy, perseverance and
poetic loyalty to the old church to
supply the means, and, on the
other side, the whites of all nationalities
ably supplemented their
work. Friends arose in every direction.
Men who never had entered,
or had rarely entered the church,
contributed generously. Men and
women who did not believe in the
creed preached in it, contributed.
There was a sentiment that the old
stone structure rose above the
clouds and doctrines, like a mountain
rising above the cloud belts.
Every one in the community had
a vested interest and inheritance
in those coral rocks, shaped into a
monument representing the gift of
Christian civilization to the Hawaiian
people. On those stones was
written the Eecular as well as the
religious history of Hawaii. They
become, therefore, a dual monument.
The labor of reconstruction is
now substantially finished and
paid for. The old walls remain,
and over them is a lasting covering
against storm and wind, and
within them are the best designs of
modern church architecture. Many
persons would have preferred that
the original simplicity of the interior
of the building should have
been retained. That it has not
been done must be sincerely regretted.
There is a priceless
value in heirlooms, and in
ancient forms. But the day
for criticism has passed, and we
heartily congratulate each other
on the beauty of the restoration.
And we Eincerely congratulate Rev.
Henry Parker, because his faithful,
work for many years as the pastor
of the church is appreciated by
natives and whites.
As the doors of the church are
again opened, it is fitting that there
Bhould be some record and recognition
of the contributions made for
the restoration, without reference
to creedB. There need be no new
dedication. The dedication of the
early days is sufficient for all time.
There should be public recognition
within it3 walls of the aid ren
dered by those who, regardless of
the teeming obligations of creeds,4
looked only to the needs of this
crumbling monument of native
growth and saw to it that the needs
were met. it would be a gracious.
spectacle if all could stand on a
common platform, within its walls,
and make a common "testimony"
to the value, and lessons, of this
monument, which may be recalled
hereafter, when the radical
changes of our Eocial and political
life will make the present conditions
a curious study.
BISHOP WILLIS AND COBPORATE WOE-SHIP.
Bishop Willis again declares, in
a published letter, that the Board
of Health have no right to interfere
with the "public" recognition of the
Supreme Being, or with "public"
voice of prayer, and, as we understand
him, the Lord will not lend
his ear, unless he is worshiped in a
"corporate capacity," that is to say,
that private and fervent worship is
good as far as it goes, but that unless
he, Bishop Willis worships, in
his church, in a "corporate capacity,"
the Lord will turn a deaf ear,
and, of course, will never regard for
a moment the supplications of "the
Puritans of Honolulu."
As the Board of Health will not
permit this "corporate" worship,
the Bishop, tragically praiEes himself,
extends his scornful fight at
the Board, and exclaims:
"Will It be said, Honolulu, havirjg
dethroned its earthly sovereign, has
proceeded to disown all open allegiance
to'lhe Kings of Kings?"
In other words, because the simple
earnest Chriitians of Honolulu
fear that gatherings even in
churches, may spread disease, and
therefore prevent such gatherings,
they are pagans and lunatics and
The Bishop reminds us of the
venerable and well-known ape in
the Zoological gardens of Calcutta,
who becomes melancholy, refuses
to eat, pulls the hair of other apes,
and chatters wildly if he is not allowed
to occupy a particular perch
at meal times. This perch he regards
as a Eort of "corporate" institution,
necessary to his own well
being and to that of other apes,
and those who keep him away from
it he regards as miserable Puritan
ape3 who wish to be wicked and
destroy his peace of mind.
A DIET AND HYGIENIC SOCIETY.
There are a number of intelligent,
educated women in this city
who have leisure, and would be
much happier if there were some
important subject toward which
they could direct serious attention.
The subject of the proper diet,
clothing and hygienic conduct in
general would not be held in contempt
by great male scientists, so
that there is no occasion for women
to consider the subject mere "rubbish,"
as the Arkansas women regarded
The subject touches the life,
health and prosperity of men,
women and children. As the best
life on earth depends largely upon
the physical conditions, there can
surely be no more interesting or
broader study than that of ascertaining
the best hygienic conditions,
and the food, and its preparation,
of a rac9 that has entirely
changed its environment.
The doctors Eay that more than
one-half of the mothers do not
know how to take care of their
children. If eo, it is time they
Browning societies have their
uses, of course, but these and similar
societies call for no special
mental work, and are "therefore
rather luxuries, or pastimes.
A society for hygienic treatment
calls for some hard work. The
prevailing nervous diseases are
covered by it. The "new woman"
calls for hard work, and brain
work, and challenges men in the
scientific field. Now is her opportunity,
and one open to those who
abandoned the cooler climates.
Xo conclusions which women
may easily reach would probably
affect men with fixed habits, and
who are content with things as
they are, even if they are miserable,
and weak, and "tire out altogether
too quickly. But the physical
condition and growth of the
children may be vastly improved
by persistent study and experiment,
and comparison of ideas.
Of course it will be said that the
women can't fix their attention on
this or any other subject, and that
the woman "who knows it all" will
spoil any effort in this direction,
and, at least, all of them will prefer
inhaling the sweet odors which ex-
hale from the rotten masses of
scandal. But the times are gradually
changing. If women, heretofore,
have not shown a scientific
turn of mind, it is because it had
no place in, "evolution," whatever
that is. Their brain power we
believe to be equal to that of man,
but working itself out, in quite different,
but equally important,ways.
It is singular that so few educated
women have ever Btudied the
chemistry of cooking. It may be
explained on the theory that "evolution"
has not required it. Has
the opportune moment arrived? If
eo, let the movement begin.
Some of the inspectors in visiting
the houses of people whom
they think ought to know enough
to keep their premises clean, have
been satisfied with simply finding
out who lived in the house. This
is net as it should be. The inspectors
were appointed to inspect
each and every house and they
ought to carry out their instructions
to the letter. Even the "oldest
and best" residents, though
careful enough themselves, often
have servants whose ideas of good
sanitary conditions are not of a
very high standard. This is a
time when no stone should be left
HILO AND THE CHOLERA.
We shall await with anxiety the
reports about the landing of Sheriff
Hitchcock on the island of Hawaii.
The event of the deputy sheriff attempting
to prevent the landing of
the sheriff, because he may be "infected,"
will amuse the bystanders
atleast. On the whole, we believe
that the sheriff will go up to stay.
The people of Hilo seem to have
lost their heads. The Board of
Health has had the other
islands under consideration, as
carefully as it has had the island
of Oahu. It is in a better position
to judge of the best course to take
than those residing in the remote
districts. Divided action is expensive,
annoying and unnecessary.
For the people of Hilo to suspect
for a moment that their friends
here would allow them to be put in
jeopardy, is in the nature of an in
sult. At the same time, hasty
action may be excused, for several
reasons, but it cannot be justified.
All this may also be said about the
people of Kauai and Maui.
A correspondent, whose letter
will be found on another page, suggests
that the steamers decline to
carry the mails to ports on the
other islands, unless passengers
are allowed to land. We do not
approve this suggestion. By reference
to the civil code it will be
seen that coasting vessels are by
law required to carry the mails,
under such regulations as may be
prescribed by the Government.

American women are the

worse her daughters will select
