We have it on good authority that
Charles R. Bishop has in contempla
tion the establishment of a museum of
Hawaiian antiquities. The. relics, cu
rios and industrial articles belonging to
the estate of the late Mrs. JJishop form
a valuable nucleus for such a mirscum.
It was contemplated by Queen Dowager
Emma to leave her relics and
curios in trust to Mr. Bishop to be
joined with those of Mrs. Bishop for
the purpose first above mentioned,
The unfortunate fact that the codicil of
the late Queen's will, making such pro
vision, was unsigned has delayed the
immediate transfer of the relics in ques
tion, though it is earnestly to be hoped
that they will eventually be devoted to
the desired end. Dr. Arning has made
during his two years rcsdience, a very
creditable collection, which he will sell
at a fair price. One or two other
private collections will be sold on
equally favorable terms for the above
If circumstances so aid Mr. Bishop
that he is enabled to carry out his pub
project the nation will be
greatly the gainer. "If done it is well
that it be well done and done quickly1
as the day is not distant at which such
a museum will be impossible.

Yesterduy morning two young men
while eating breakfast in a restaurant
up town were overheard holding a con
versation which was in substance to the
effect that, as they did not feel able to
spend fify cents a month in order to
have the benefits of the Public Library,
they proposed to form a club of say,
ten members, represented by one of
the number, who was to join the hi
brary Association, pay the dues, draw
the books, pass them around among
the members and finally return them to
the library, thus securing a membership
for ten or more persons on a basis of
$1.50 per quarter. In other words,
these young men propose that the
members of the club shall receive - the
benefit of our Public Library at the
rate of five cents per month apiece or
fifteen cents per quarter.
Now, our Public Library is an institution
which should be so sustained and
supported by our citizens that it might
extend its sphere of usefulness and be
iiouie, in time, a gi eater ornament and
honor to our city. The Library derives
no support from the Government and
has always been dependent upon the
dues and donations received from time
to time from generous citizens. It is
humiliating to thinlnh'at we have people
in our midst who are capable of concocting
a'scheme to virtually defraud
and in such a manner upon a
public institution that is chiefly dependent
upon the charity ol our citizens.
It is always disagreeable to say harsh
things, but in the present case we un
derstand that the suggestors of (his
scheme of literary larceny are amply
able to pay the small fee of fifty cents
a month, for the advantages they pro
pose to derive from the Library by
fraud, at the rate of five cents a month
There is no palliation or shadow of ex
cuse for such conduct. Young men, if
you read this, for the sake of jour man
hood profit by our woids. We take
the greatest pleasure iu warning the
authorities of the Library in this pub
lie manner that they may take steps to
prevent such an occurrance.

KrmoK Honolulu J'russ Dear
Sir: I've got my opinion of a paper
that cocs to work and tries to ruin the
old pump handle joke on all milkmen
in such a shameful manner. However,
I'll let vou off seeing that you do not
define what quality of milk that twenty-four
gallons was 1 But its that "devil"
you were hunting for which called to
mind an incident which Happened many
years ago in my own town of Leicester,
Kngland. A poor boy, Richard Harris,"
was employed in the office of the
Leicester Advertiser and was as usual
dubbed the printer's "devih" One
morning early, just as the last form was
being made up to go on the press,
poor Richard accidentally "pied" it
there was no time to reset the type ;
so, all jumbled together as it was, the
lonn was "iockco ana wun me editorial
remark across the bottom of the
form "The Dutch mail arrived so
late we are obliged to give it to the
public as we received it" the paper
was published. The poor printer's
-devil" was ever afterwards ltnown ns
"Dutch Mail Harris." He lived to become
a member of Parliament for his
native town and founded one of the
largest hosiery manufacturing establishments
in England and after building
one of the most beautiful churches
in Leicester he died at a ripe old age.
Moral : Every printer's devil in
Honolulu has the chance to become
something great if he will only let his
moral courage help mil) to overcome
the small difficulties of life. This same
remark will apply to numbers of other
young men. Yours truly,

In the state house at Salem theie is
one of the most remarkable historical
souvenirs that is in existence. Visitors
to that building cannot have failed to
notice the queer old printing press in
one of the rooms in the third story a
dusty-covered and worn machine, the
relic of a bygone era in printing, and
built in a time before men had learned
to focalize the entire resources of their
deepest ingenuity in furtherance of the
art preservative. Its story is an interesting
one, and trenches upon the history
of Oregon in its most momentous
days. I will narrate it as I have learned
it, through the medium o! scattered
newspaper scraps, men's recollections
and current traditions.
In very early days, before the colonization
of Oregon had been dreamed of,
and while its interior was only known
to the world through the explorations of
from Boston bearing with her a party
of Congregational missionaries on the
way to the Sandwich Islands to regenerate
the degraded Kanakas. Among
their stores they carried this identical
old printing press, then, for ought I
know, in a condition of bran-newness
and unstained by contact with the very
roughest corners of a rough world. In
1819 the vessel entered the harbor of
Honolulu and the missionaries disem
barked and began their chosen career
of teaching religion to the unclothed
and uncouth barbarians that the islanders
then were j and their success was
very great. Jn the course of a generation
the natives were all converted to
Christainity, nominally at least, and
scenes of cannabalism and savagery
which were frequent at the beginning
of this century exist now only in the
recollection of the oldest inhabitant.
Of the part played in this drama of
wholesale redemption by the old press
we can know little except by conjecture.
But that it Was extensive and
important I have no doubt, for the edu
cation of the converts in all cases was
made to keep pace with their moral
improvement, and to-day the arts of
leading and writing are general through
out the islands. In 1839, the needs of
the missions having outgrown the
capacity of the primitive press, a new
and more extensive outfit was procured
from the eastern states, and the old
press, with its original apparatus of ink,
paper, etc., the whole valued at $450,
was by its owners, the First Native
church of Honolulu, presente'd to the
then recently established missions of the
American board ol commissioners Tor
foreign missions, which were in the
territory .of Oregon. These missions
were three m number, and were located
respectively at Walilatpu, about
twenty miles east of Fort Walla Walla j
at Lapwai, on the Clearwater ; and at
Walker's Plains, a short distance south
of Fort Colville. Dr. Marcus Whitman
was in charge of the first named post,
which was in the country of the Walla
Walla tribe of Indians j Rev, H. H.
Spauding directed the affairs of the
second ; and two clergymen, Revs.
Cushing Ellis and Elkanah Walker,
labored at the third. Each of these
gentlemen was accompanied and
assisted by his wife. It is the popular
impression that Dr. Whitman was in
chief authority over all the stations ;
but this is an error. The missionaries
were in equal authority, and each had
charge over the affairs of his own post.
The press, as I said, came in 1839.
It was taken to Lapwai and there used
to print portions of scripture, hymn
books, etc., in the Ne Perce and Spo
tongues. The effort to
teach the savages the art qf reading
was quit successful, so much so that
individuals of those tribes who sat
under the missionaries' teachings still
remember the lessons they then learned
and actually in some cases preserve the
old and worn text-books from which
they derived their knowledge of the
Christian way of life. If now, after the
lapse of forty years, these Nez Perces,
DAILY HONOLULU PRESS, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1885.
Spokanse and other dejpiscd races retain
so much of these valuable lessons,
does it reciuirc any further! proof to
show that they and presumably all other
similar tribes arc capable of civilization ?
It seems to ir)c to be fully proved: for
If the labor of one missionary among a
whole tribe and surrounded by such
adverse circumstances as we know to
hae existed then, accomplished so
much, it is certain that a more methodic
effort, longer sustained and strongly
supported, could not fail to convert
the wild abdnginics into at least toler
I have in my possession a few speci
mens of the work done on the old press
at Lapwai. There is the gospel of Matthew
printed in book form, and very
well printed too. I he Rev. Mr. Walked
tried his "prentice hand" on a trans
lation of scripture into Hie Spokane-
Flathead, and performed quite credit
ably, excepting for turned letters, etc.
As for his spelling, it of course was
subject to no rule and followed no na
tive Webster or Worcester.
When the press came to Oregon there
came with it Edwin 0. Hall, a Yankee
typo of these wandering sort but a very
respectabh man. He was accompanied
by his wife, whose failing health in the
islands had induced them to leave
Honolulu. Hall did the work on the
native books of which I have spoken,
and was thus the pioneer of the art of
printing, in Oregon, and, except for one
circumstance, in the whole of the
United States west of the Rocky
Mountains. That circumstance is the
fact that the earlier Mexican governors
of California had a small American-
made press at Monterey, their capital,
upon which they printed their state
documents and pronunciamentos. At the
beginning of the war between Mexico
and the United States, Commodore
Stockton seized Monterey and put his
chaplain ashore to act as alcalde (police
judge). The was named
the Kev. Walter Colton, and one of his
first official acts was to take possession
of the press and begin to print a news
paper upon it. I his was the Caltjorman.
This fact, however, fias no bearing on
the matter under discussion.
In the year 1840, Hall returned to
the islands, and subsequently went to
the eastern states. I have notice of his
having died a year or two since. After
his departure several people had charge
of the old jiress in succession, and
turned out considerable printing in the
way of Indian translations, etc N. G.
Foisy was compositor for some time.
He died at French Prairie, Marion
county, on June ir, 1879. AVhen, on
November 29, 1847, Dr. Whitman was
foully murdered by recreants of the
tribe he was tryining so hard to christianize,
the mission stations were abandoned,
and after the close of the Cayuse
war the priming material were taken
to the Tualatin plains in Washington
county. Here the Rev. John Smith
OlJinit,"UUC lltual mugmmlTnouj
of men, and at the same time one of
the most independent, established a
newspaper, the second in Oregon, (the
Spectator was the first,) named the Ore-
gonian American and Evangelical Un-
toiisl, and printed it upon the old,
much-traveled press. IVte Oregon
American and Evangelical Unionist
did not long survive, and the
press supernaruated and rusty,
went out of use, and in i860 was
advertised for sale. A few years ago
Mr. Griffin and Mrs. Spaldirig, widow
of the Rev. H. H. Spalding, and
missionary of unsurpassed energy
and fervor, having long since acquired
title to it, presented the press to the
state of Oregon to be ictained in trust
for the people. I leave it to whoever
reads this sketch to say whether the gift
is not a valuable and appropriate one.
