It Is not often that the Daily Honolulu
Press "blows its own trumpet,"
but we feel a pardonable wide in calling
attention to the ' Grand Offer"
made bv us, in another column of this
issue. This isan enterprise which, we
believe, is the first of its kind that has
ever been attempted in this Kingdom,
and, we trust, will receive the patronage
it deserves, as it is a bona-fide
arrangement by which the public can
get a six months' subscription to our
paper, and a valuable Holiday Gift, at
club rates, which are much less than the
regular prices when not combined.
This offer is open only until January J,

v iiOT01iF.11 ;ini, una,
In the Nu Ilou of the above date
appears an editorial, which like old
wine has improved with age. Some of
its points may be somewhat out of
date, but taken as a whole it so aptly
fits the present political situation of
Hawaii that Te cannot forebear bringing
it again befpre the public. .His Excel
lency the present Premier was at that
time the logical and consistent editor
of the Nu JIou, and we hope that he
will consider our reprinting this edl
torial, which so logically and truthfully
applies to the present " Dummy Gov
eminent," in no other light than that of
a sincere compliment to his quondam
ability. The misty "Ministerial fugle
man " is supposed to be one of the
present Minister's feeble predecessors
" A Dummy Government, according
to the Ministerial fugleman is what
would suit us btst. Vc do not need
liye men, although we may need a 'live
paper,' which with him means more
scissors than sense ; but a 'live man' is
a luxury in which we have not indulged
for lo these 'thirty years,' and which we
may well dispense with for three decades
more. Prosperous land 1 It lias
been happy with its political dunces in
the past, and asks only a continuance
of its blissful, public inanity. But was
this the fugleman's song, only a short
year or two ago, when he could get no
crist for his mill, no jobs for his
shop ? Ah I then, we had great need of
a 'live man, according to this cry. And
now that his mouth is stopped, shall we
accept him as an oracle of conservatism,
and be content while he baits at
the public club ? No, we are not so
enamored of the glories of the past, or
the present 5 (although, by the way, the
past far exceeded the present,) that we
shall not desire a change. We must
have the live spirit at the .bead of Gov
ernment that is wholly dei'oted to the
nublic service, that understands the
people and can harmonize their views
with the needs of authority ; that is
.full of resource to meet special dilticul
ties , that by ari active, initiative
Iion 01 puouc aijairs win inspire me
confidence of ability both at home and
abroad; that will forestall schemers
and grumblers by fertility of devices,
that will sustain at all Iwards the
honor of the King and the 'sacredness
of Government,' or give way for men that
can, mat win stuuy me mmucsi ueiaus,
as well as embrace the largest views,
whether in relation to treaties for
national needs, or regulations for muni
cinal convenience!!, that will do all
this, so as to meet and sqjjbfy public
expectation and create the confidence
of healthful progress. Such will be a
spirit that will be live and fruitful of
good and sorely needed in .1 poor wcaK
conntry like this; vhich must be
saved from the dummies, -saved from
the cliques, saved from the rings,
saved from the narrowness of view,
meanness, weakness, and cowardice ;
and be rescued by live men."
It is needless for us to pass comment,
personal or otherwise, , upon the above
production. Suffice it to say that we
endorse most of the views set fortli
therein, as applying to the present
Administration and heartily recommend
the whole editorial to the careful
consideration of His Majesty the King
and to the tax-payers generally.
The Jamaica tml Hawaiian Sugar
Editor Daily Honolulu Press :
Sir In the highly instructive communication
of Mr. J. Marsden published
in the Planters Monthly about the sugar
industry in Jamaica, he points out that
the production of rum is 2,008,563 gallons
for 1883. This amount wants 17,500
tons of molasses for its, production, containing
17,500 cwt. of mineral salts
taken from the soil and which are lost
rcgulary, year by year, in manufacturing
rdm from the molasses. Hence the
reason for the increasing impoverishment
of the soil and the decadence of
the sugar industry in that country. The
Hawaiian Islands produce more than
double this sum, coniequcntly the loss
would be 35,000 cwt. with only five
percent, of mineral salts in the molasses.
This sliould be an earnest 'warning for
our planters, and signifies what it means
to kill the goose that lays the golden
eggs. Ten years more of this system
and there will be neither sugar nor rum
manufactured in beautiful Jamaica.
Here in these Islands the molasses is
wasted in the most indiscriminate way,
and the children of the living generation
will have .to suffer the loss of her principal
staple caused by the want of wisdom
in their ancestors. The heavy claims
of cane soilsVcan, under no circumstance,
bo neglected, and when, if not
fulfilling those claims, the effect in these
sugar-producing Islands, of new date, is
not yet felt, the tiTiic will arrive, must
irnvc, when it will ?ue lelt and what
then ? X.
The Venial 'f'lrpln.
There has rccentlyJbcen discovered
on the site of the Temple of Vesta in
Rome a stone cofferljialf full of ashes,
and a dozen or morescientific persons
have decided that the ashes-are those
of the sacred fire whjbh the virgins were
Minnnsed to keen ne'rnetuallv burninir.
Their argument is.fhat the ashes were
held too sacred tolbe thrown away, and
hence must have' been preserved, and
inai me iiuvc just, ucun
found must,have been those sacred
ashes. It ia powerful argument, but
it is onewhich any surviving relative
ofthevyirgins ought Severely to condemn.
Tlirfotal amount of ashes discovered
is not more than five bushels, Will
any one believe, says the New York
Junes, that a wood lire burning lor centuries
did not produce more than five
bushels of ashes ? Let us assume that
the fire was as small as possible, and
that it burned day and night for only
300 years. In that rase a very simple
calculation will show that it must have
produced at least 17 bushels of ashes.
What, then, is the conclusion which we
are (orced to draw when we find only
five bushels of sacred ashes in the I em
pie of Vesta ? Obviously it is that the
virgins let the fire go out every night
and at all hours during the day when
no worshipper was expected to visit the
temple. When we remember that the
Romans were periodically horrified at
discovering that some vestal had been,
unity of flirtation, it is odd that no
Roman ever suspected the virgins of
letting the lire go but at night, i he
Romans actually beliced that the poor
girls sat up all night to keep the lire
blazing when it , would have been perfectly
safe for them to let it go out and
to kindle it again with the kerosene can
whenever a worshipper approached the
door. The new discovery, if it proves
anything proves that the Vestal Virgins
were faithless and fond of sleep. Was
there no scientific person to deny, in
the interest of the virgins, that the five
bushels of ashes came from the sacred

"The largest house a lecturer ever
drew, said Major l'ond, "was when
J3eeclier lectured in the Chicago Taber
nacle a few winters ago. The receipts
were $4,600 and the prices were fifty
and seventy-five cents. I remember
the circumstances well. They were
nuite unusual. A South l'ark minister,
with a big debt on his church, wrote
me for Beechcr's terms. I replied that
they were $1,000 for a city like Chicago.
The minister had sciapcd to
gether that much money and decided
to risk it. He hired the tabernacle for
$400, paid George Capenter $500 more
for managing the lecture and advertised
extravagantly. When we arrived
in Chicago and were told what he had
been doing I thought he was a fool and
told him so. Said I, 'You can't help
but lose money with such reckless management.'
Well, night came and along
with it came throng after throng, until
the tabernacle contained nearly eight
thousand people. The venturesome
minister cleared $1,800, enough to pay
his church debt. And he had sense
enough not to enter into the amusement
business again. He probably
would have lost next time.

the most profitable speaker I know of.
lie cleared $27,000 in sixteen weeks,
in his ventuie with Cable last season,
after paying the latter $500 per week
and civing me ten per cent of the
gross receipts for doing the managing.
All this talk, by the way, about any falling
out between Twain and Cable is
the veriest of nonsense. Cable will
make another tour next season. He

is the most prominent delineator in
America and will yet make a 'fortune
on the platform. Another successful
lecturer is Talmage. English speakers,
as .1 rule, have not done "very well in
this country. Matthew Arnold, with fill
his reputation, cleared only $io.o!oo
during his season in the Statcs,jt?and
half of that went to D'Oylcy Carte, his
manager. Proctor has done moderately
well, but he is twenty years behind the
times. Spurgeon is the
who would create a -furore in
America, but he says he wouldn't
come over here if all the world ycre
bullion and he could get it .for a single
"When the lecture platform docs
come in favor again the dp mand will be
for historical and scientific lectures.
John Fisk, who has written a great deal
for Harpers, is a promising historical
lecturer. He narrated Stories of the
revolution so well last season that he
netted $6,000, and is just commencing.
H. C. Bunncr, editor ofl Puck, is another
clever fellow. He (Iocs not make

One of the most attractive displays "of
elegant' holiday floods in Honolulu is made by
Messrs. King liros., No. 87 Hotel street.
Their assortment of Birthday, Christmas and
New Years cards, of Prang's and other makes,
is exquisite in design and finish and are olTcrcd
at extremely law ratts. An inspection of
their pictiifc gallery will well repay the visitor,-while
Artist's can here And a choice selection
of artists' materials. In the windows of King
liros. are, also, a fine collection of Clarke's
fern cards, island curious, etc., and some beautiful
shells, painted in native scenes, by"Mrs.
Thomas J. King, which are valuable mementos
to send abroad.
A rare treat is in store for those who will
take the trouble to pay a visit to our icicle
friend, Mr. Henry Hart, and examine some of
his valuable and useful curiosities. His tappa
cloth serves as a decided novelty and the
numerous lavas and shells form a fine collection.
