"Eoviowor," in the I Advertiser
crilioisbs tho " Hawaiian" nnd
itsJc'dltor, but it sooms to
the Syrjtor that'mudh has boon
loft unsaid that ought to bo said
concerning the ohurch people df
HawaiiUthings 'tliat ciiuld not
o by tlio missionaries
thotnsolvos without incurring thq
chnrgo jof ooncoit or immodesty.
It sooms, therefore fittinc
that oiio who has novor boon a
communicant of any ohuroh, Who
has, frfm early athoistical
and a somewhat familiur
acquaintance, with tho works of
materialistic Authors boon prono
to regard power of
whatevor denomination as tho
avowed and aggressive enomy of
human 'progress and enlightenment,
should ondoavor, with such
poor liowor as ho may possosB to
do an aot of tardy justice to tho
objpets 'of Mr. Hayno's
Tho writer is an Amorican
oitizen. Ho did not bocomo oither
a citizen or donizon of tho Hawaiian
Monarchy; ho has taken
no oath to the P. G. . or tho
Islands; ho lias boliovod and does
still, that tho formor monarchy
was ('subverted by tbo landing of
Amorican marinos from the Boston;
and ho think that tho machinations
of Amorican diplomatic
and naval officora, prior to such
Bub.version, against a woak, possibly
faulty, but still friondly
govornmont, have stained the
pages of Amerioan History with
a blot of dishonor that evon tho
orasivp hand of Time, can never
It cannot therefore be Baid that
these lines in dofonsb of a' much
malignod class .have omanted from
ono controlled' by either roligious
or political bias. This, I have
thought nooossary to say by way
It cannot but be regardod as
most unfortunate for the causo of
roligiou that certain members of
religiouB bodies on thoso islands,
evon ministers of tho Gospel, have
descended to. tho use of slander in
past nowspapor controversies regarding
tho formor quoon and her
peoplo, but it is not believable
that tho persons who havo so far
forgotton their duty to thoir oroed
and thoir fdllowmen roprosent tho
thoughts or tho wishes of any
considorablo following of their
class. It has boon chiefly owing
to thoso ill-advised' writers that
milch of existing social and
political bitterness is duo, that
has made Mr. Hayne's. "Hawaiian"
a possibility, that has given
this literary ' fahfaronv an undeserved
Tho initial number of Mr.
Hayno's magazine' exemplified tho
wisdom of tho old axiom: "A
stream cannot bo purer than its
Sourco." During his formor
horo ho claimod tho authorship
of a comic opora and ho
had the sbamoloss assuratfeo to
publioly porsist in such claim
aftor tho press had oxposod. him
as a liar and plagiarist.
In tho present number of, tlio Hawaiian
appears tho following,
This have I found, and nil my heart It fills
That all must, some day, whatso'or, the life
. .. .thoy'vo lod
Grow'old, unlovely, weak, bowed down by

It is not my intention to'wnto

I have often hoard that assertion
made by supportors of tho
present Govornmont. And Mr.
Hnyno roasserts tho same fact.
May I ask the gontloman whoso

postulato is correct what possiblo
fault cap ho fiud with tho military
sujootion of a raco who, ho assures
us, is not fit for reprcsontntivo
government? And now I wish to
call Mr. Hayno's attontion to a
fow patent faots.
If a family arrives in our midst
destitute and sick . without relatives
, frionds, ohurch or lodgo
connections who is it that
provides tho n'eodod nocessarios,
tho nurse, physioian, provisions'
homo, etc? Not thoinfidolfs not
2oit)vclass, nor mino, Mr. Hayno.
I confess with noither
here nor olsowhoro is there
any organized effort among tho
opponents' of the church to
relievo tho poor, minister to tho
sick, or rosouo tho criminal
"brands from tho burning.''1
It is tho man and 'woman of
refinomont; tho church mombors,
wh voluntarily leave thpir
homes to go to places that
cannot but bo abhorront to
thpir -whole moral and montal
sonBe. To go into homes
reeking with filth and infested
with disoaso, "where the lurid
firo of fovor oroops across the
rottod floor,- and tho orowdod
couch of incest in tho warrens of;
They, establish fruit and flowor
missions and visit tho hospitali

iouow tlio example of such as you

in writing diatribes against "mis

slums and meot from tho lips of
paintod bawds, the ready railory
at virtuo, and aro rogalod in,
pfisdn corridors with rudo jests
from rudor men. How vOry
much pleasantor it would bo, Mr.
Hayno, to sit in tho soft glow of
an electric chandolier in a nico
oasy chair or on a comfortablo
couch or in a gently swinging
hamraodk, in a room furnished
with taste and elcganco and listen
to tho prattlo of ohildron who aro

Editor Independent :
Moyono.ask you: Vhat is a
olub ? Ono definition iB that it is
"an association of persons for a
particular purpose." "What
purposo was tho Paoifio
Olub organized for? Is it a
military, political, library, musical
Or tradesmen's club 1 Is it
not a olub of gentlomon associated
for tho purposo of promoting,
good fellowship ? What is sought
to bo known is, why tho Board of
Hoalth can uso tho privileges of
tho olub for dining, or any other
purposo. .Such a doviation from
tho.purposos of tho foundors and
Othor mombors of tho Paoifio
Club isono that intorests overy
member, and its dirootors, boforo
allowing snob an innovation as
tho di'nnor givon by tho Board of
Hoalth marks, should havo taken
