It is not often that the Dailv Honolulu
Press " blows its own trumpet,"
but we feel a pardonable pride in balling
attention to the " Grand' Offer "
made by us, in another column 'of this
issue. This is an enterprise which, wc
believe, is the first of its kind that has
ever been attempted in this Kingdom,
and, wc trust, will receivfc 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 milch less than the
regular prices when not cohibined.
This offer is open only until January 1,

Any one who has taken the pains to
watch the course of events as they
appear from week to week upon the
" police court records will notice a continual
string of charges brought against
.petty offenders for smuggling opium
into the Kingdom or for having the
smuggled drug in their possession.
The candid investigator will also
notire that the arrests for these petty
offences represent but a small portion
of the supply of this drug, which at the
present as in the past has been
gled" into the Kingdom to meet the
large Chinese demand for opium all
over the Island'. This demand is so
great that at times, when through some
hitch in the management of (he smug
gling rings the supply has fallen short,
the price of opium has risen to an
enormous figure throughout the group.
Now it is all nonsense to claim, as
some people do(and among them are
some of the Government officials) that
no opium rings exist in Hawaii. It is
not known specifically, just who com
pose these rings for the importation of
opium in violation of the law, but
it is pretty well understood that the
petty offenders who are always pun
ished when caught by our efficient
detective force, who seem to be blind
in one eye, do not so much merit pun
ishment as those who are importing
opium into the Kingdom on a large
scale and who ought to he known to
the police, if they are not already so
known. The police should ferret out
whatever becomes a strong suspicion.
Iri the public mind the suspicion "has
become crystalized into a belief that
the opium smuggling business has
been going on for a long time past
between public officials, heads of Gov
ernment in fact, as well as others, and
seyeral seaworthy vessels which touch
at this port. That there is an im
mense revenue deriu'd from tiis illicit
traffic nobody doubts. Another im
- position practiced upon the public, not
illegally it- is true but no less a legal
imposition, is the practice of ship
owners andshlp captains bringing stocks
T"of goods to this port and disposing of
them at wholesale or retail and sometimes
even under u peddler's licerjiQ,
These perquisite traders do not compete
with our home merchants they
deliberately undersell them to an extent,
which is simply ruinous to our
home trade. You can buy from these
perquisite traders any thing you want
from a ship load of hay and grain to a
feather for a lady's hat. These per
quisitc traders pay out no freight and
,are hence able to demoralize our home
-I (rode at will. They are worse than the
Chinese who come into close competition
with both labor and trade. In
touching upon this questionitisbut right
and just to state that the Oceanic Steamship
Company lias always protected the
merchants in this regard, There is a
standing order issued by this company
that none of their employees will be
allowed to trrfde in any way to the
detriment of our home merchants.
This is just and the people appreciate
it. In excepting the Oceanic Company
we do not mean to accuse others.
Other steamship lines may have the
same, rule we only say that some
vessels trading at this port do not act
justly in the matter.
In conclusion we wish to say that if
all the shipowners, who have vessels
touching herd for traffic, would follow
the example of the Oceanic Company
and limmediately discharge any employee
who is found to be either connected
with questionable smuggling
transactions or with the perquisite
trading business, the result would soon
show itself in the improved condition
of our home trade. It is to be hoped
that the Oceanic Company will continue
to keep out of their employment
all persons upon whom suspicion has
fallen and that other ship-owners will
follow the good example.

Salt "Lake, November 221I. The
Mormons have as thev say, "turned
the tables" on the Gentiles. For some
time there have been rumors that the
Mormon leaders had hired harlots to
come here and entrap Gentiles. Last
night Deputy United States Marshal
Vandercook was arrested on a charge
of lewdness with Mrs. Field and United
States Commissioner PCarson with
Lydia Dailey. The churclpaper this
morning, is in high glee,' and assumes
the guilt of the accused, but
denies all knowledge bf Mrs.
Field, and affirms that the case against
him is a put-up job. Pearson also
denies his guilt. Many warrants are
said to be out, and reports say the
cases will be made, if possible, at all
hazards. A great deal of feeling has
been stirred up by the rumors, and
much warmth is exhibited.

The Kew 31ntt Contract.
William Center, of the firm of
Sprsckels Bi others & Company, was interviewed
last night by a Call reporter
in reference to the reports contained in
the following special dispatch which
was received by the Call in the evening :
New York, Nov, j 9. A Washington
special to the, to says: The
Postpffice Department has been advised
that, upon the completion of the
Canadian Pacific roads, all tranatlantic
mails from England will be forwarded
over that road, and that a new line of
British steamers will be established
at the western terminus of the Canadian
Mr. Center began by saying that
there was one very strong reason for
disbclicvin in the rumors referred to,
and which in fact rendered it
for them to be true, this being the
simple fact that a contract had just
been signed betw'een the authorities at
Sydney on the one part, and his own and
the Union Steamship Company upon
the other, whereby they are to carry
the English and colonial mails for the
period of three years from the 21st inst.
More than this, the very project which
is the subject of the rumor mentioned
was brought before the Colonial Parliament
during Mr, Center's late visit to
Australia for the purpose of arranging
the mail contract, and thoroughly dis
cussed in alj its bearings. St, Julius
Vogcl and other prominent mpmbers
investigated the matter exhaustively,
with Mr,. Lowers assistance, and, as
the result of their inquiries, pronounced
positively against the project.
A Lots of Time,
It was show that there would inevitably
be an actual loss in time of at
least two days from the Atlantic shore
to Sydney, for, although the Canadian
Pacific road is somewhatshorterthanthe
American mail route, the time gained
would, under the most favorable conditions,
amount to only about one day,
while at least three would be lost
through the extra length of the sea voyage
upon the Pacific. It would simply
be a shortening of the fast part of the
distance and a lengthcnim? of the
DAILY HONOLULU PRESS, 'WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1885.
Nor would this be all, when the entire
trip from England to the colonies
is ccmidered. In point of fact there
an: ho fast Canadian steamers crossing
the Atlantic, and the mails would consequently
have to come first to New
York upon the Cunard or some other
fast line, and then be reshipped north
to Canada, which would cause an additional
loss of time. Taking everything
into consideration, Mr. Center considered,
without prejudice, that there
was at present no other practicable
route except the one now in use, in
which opinion the colonial authorities
fully agreed with him, and, consequently,
-signed-the contract for three
years as stated. J In the future other,
and perhaps better, routes may be
established, but they will not be by
means oT a more northerly land
A Direct Montr,
The most direct route, and one which
he was somewhat inclined to think
might one day be fixed upon, Mr.
Center stated would be to go by rail to
sonic extremely southern port, Guaymas
for instance, and thence by sea to the
colonies, since thus the land route
would be lengthened and the ocean
passage shortened, which would be a
As to the fact of the two steamers,
the Zealandia and the Australia, having
been taken off the route between Sydney
and Honolulu, Mr. Center had no
particular explanation to offer, but was
certain, at all events, that they were not
going to be. used as mail steamers between
Sydney and Victoria. These
boats arc getting old and have seen
their best days, and it is possible that
their owner may intend to employ them
in some less responsible traffic. He
did not consider it likely that they
would be, used to convey passengers or
merchandise to and from the western
terminus of the Canadian Pacific, as
even for these purposes he did not consider
that such a route could be made
