Keslding In Honolulu

THURSDAY OCT 17 1895
PATJ IOA
It is a great satisfaction to bo able
to say that tho alleged cholera under
which wo have suffered for months
has disappeared Tho entering into
port of tho Mariposa this morning
shows sufficiently that satisfactory
explanations have been- given and
that Honolulu onco more has been
declared a clean port
Tho time for squabbling and dis
puting as to the hows and
wheres and whys tho recent
opidomio camo is now in order and
the publio will probable got sick
and tired boforo thoso important
questions aro settled which they
never will bo
Tho Attorney General leaves for a
desorvod rest and although some
body thinks that it would havo been
bettor for him to go to California
and thoro explain all ho knows about
cholera instead of going to New
Zealand nobody grudgos him tho
trip Wo fail to see why tho land
business is used as an oxcuso for
sending Mr Smith abroad in an offi
cial capacity and on publio sub
sidy There is no reason why
ho shouldnt make a journey and
there was no nocossity to invest him
with tho sham of a public mission
Doles land bill although mutilated
and in its present shape as faulty as
tho original has been passed and all
tho knowledge to bo gainedin Now
Zealand by Mr Smith will not assist
in improving tho law Tho depar
ture of Mr Smith however proves
that tho authorities of Hawaii do
not ontortain any foar df another
outbreak of tho opidomio and that
an official indorsement has boon
placed on tho statement that it is
stamped out
Undor these circumstances wo aro
surprised to notico tho attitude of
tho U S cruiser Olympia This
vessel so far refuses to como iu port
aud wo havo received numerius
complaints bocause officers and men
are provonted coming ashore
The officers aro allowod to mako
calls during tho day timo but havo
to return at sunset and no liberty is
granted to tho men The comman
dor and doctor of tho cruiser know
their businoss of course but wo do
not think that they havo fully
realized the injury done to this
country through tho attitude adopt
ed by tliiiii Tim Mnriposa left
with a clean bill of health but it
will be stated by her that tho U S
cruiser still refuses to enter port
which will cause tho impression
that Honolulu is an infected port
Wo understand that tho regulation
of tho doctor of tho Olympia will bo
modified and wo sincerily hope that
no exaggerated precaution will bo
taken but that tho officers and men
will bo allowod to couio ashore
Tho cholera in Honolulu if it ever
was hero is pall
FALSE JiEfOUXS
A native paper tolls its readers
that soveral officers from U S S
cruiser Olympia called at Washing
ton Place and wore iu privato con
ference with tho ox Queon for nearly
an hour It is unnecessary for us to
state that tho roport is without any
foundation whatever Mr 0 13
Wilson wa3 soon in regard to tho
matter this morning and expressed
himsolf as very anuoyed over such
reports which can only tend to
croato falso impressions atnonjj tho
Hawaiians aud aro injurious to them
and distasteful to tho Qupou We
caunot peo the object in alleged in
telligent Hawaiians spreading such
rumors and even casting them broad
cast over tho country iu print but
it is about timo that such business
was stopped and that the Hawaiians
and others woro made to understand
that tho Queen resides at Washing
ton Place reloased simply on parolo
from her formor prison At present
she doe3 not rocoivo oallors Her
persoual friends aro oven refused
admittance to bor presence at hor
own request lot alone strangors
In tho meantime the easily duped
Hawaiian go around aud think that
there is something up What is
tho next foolishness they will
guiltyof
TOPICS OF THE DAY
bo
So far as the conviction of de
fendants brought before the Police
Couit on charges of opium in pos
session it appears that tho remit
occurs beoausa of a conspiracy
Doesnt this show what our polico
force has como to To protect tho
law in ono instance they must them
selves break tho law in another in
stance The time has como to put
the wholo business down to what
tho morale of tho community will
stand
Hawaiian seamen aro those regis
tered under tho Hawaiiau flg That
is in keeping with International
customs the world over If a vessel
ilios a flag the seiman on board be
longs to that Hag Otherwiso the
U S warof 1812 would havo been
of no avail
By tho statemont of W 0 Achi
in his alimony connection it appears
that his taxes and water rates are
duo for two years How does this
comfort tfio unfortunates who have
had to work out their taxes in parti
colored suits during tho period men
tioned
Saki seems to causo considerable
discussion hore especially among
tho people who dont use it Per
haps it would bo better to find out
what it is and what its effects may
be aud thou legislate in whatever
way would bo beneficial to us So
far wo hoar talk But practically
wo find no results If saki is bad
from our trado viow raud also from
our hoalth view some oxntuplos
should bo shown To simply talk
iu print bcouib to bo cheap
One day tho Bulletin wants bar
bor improvements Iho next day
it objects beoauso anothor paper has
ondore ed its proposal Lot it show
quietly and unmistakeably what it
wonts Then we shall havo uome
thing to arguo on In thomoantime
any plan which will improvo without
ohancos of deteriorating our harbor

Whites tho Star A proper re
spect for the ordinary amenities and
a studied regard for tho fijollngsnud
characters of all men should mark
tho conduct of newspapers as well
as tho conversation of individuals
No publication cait with hope of
success admit to its columns vague
or utisustaiuod or malicious charges
against reputable citizens Tho
course is both cowardly and uujust
aud cannot but invoke the dis
pleasure and contoinpt of fair-minded
men Now wtJaro satisfied If
all will carry out on this line uows
papor writing will bo as worthy of
dignity as wo havo tried to make it
Tho Bulletin published tho day
before yesterday signed charges
against Capt Paul Smith If they
were true he should have been ig
nomiuiously dUmissod from every
government employment that he
Lheld Oant Smt h rosonted tho
charges He took tho conduct of
tho nffdr into his owu hand
and tho Bulletin siys Cap
tain Smith would seem to bo com
pletely exonerated from tho charges
preferred against him by two lato
employes on tho dredger Loss
harm is done him by lotting his
enemies enme out in tho open which
has given him an oppor unity of
tho most public exculpation than
by having them circulate dainagiug
reports about him iu privato which
could never be fully overtakun
S tho function of a uowspapor is
to circulate chargos iu order that
they may bo denied
Dr Surmanu has thrown down
his glove to the medical members of
tho Board of Health by writing to
them that the recent epidemic was
not the Asiatic cholera Tf the Ger
mau doctor i3 right tho port physi
cian aud tho other mmnbors of the
board aro soverely to blame for hav
ing stigmatized Honolulu as a cho
lera infected port aud thereby
causing great distress hardship and
inconvouionco If Dr Surmann is
wrong and we did havo tho Asiatic
cholera the- Board of Health doe
tors ouglft tb be publicly censured
for having through their tnogloit
allowed that dread disease to enter
the country Iu the mesutimo it
will bo interesting to jitby and
watch tho fur fly when tho doctors
get into the professional wool of
each other
The Star now has abandoned its
enthusiasm for tho deepening of tbe
harbor as proposed It now says as
all kamaaiuas have paid extend the
harbor seaward And tho one
obstacle is Thurstons legacy of a
lease to the O II L Co
Where is the dredger The SJr
says goahead with it or eleo consign
it to tho scrap heap What about
Capt Paul Smith and its other oc
cupants
As tho Building Society has to ad
vertise its privileges it is safe to say
that its inside members dont rely
