"Wj-: admit," says the Advertiser,
"that our morning contemporary has
made a point against us in our statement
of the total peicentsge of domestic
exports for the past two months;
but a mere ciror in the statement of
peiceiitages docs not weaken the force
of our argument." Logically this is
equivalent to the Advertiser saying :
"We admit that our morning contem
porary has knocked the bottom out of
our premise, but that mere fact does
not weaken the conclusion of our argument,
that the Reciprocity Treaty is
being menaced by local discrimination
against American shipping." You had
better "watch sharp," gentle organ, or
the "fool-killer" will hit you between
the eyes again.
Something over two years ago a lot
of ancient manuscripts were disco veied
in Egypt and were brought to Europe
by the Archduke Renier. This collection
of valuable manuscripts is known
to scholars under the collective title of
Corpus Papyroritm Raineri
Word now comes to the civilized
world, through a correspondent of the
London Times, that among the
t tion, a fragment of the New Testament
has been found, containing a chapter
"Which differs from iSti. Matthew,-chapter
xxvi, verses 30 to 34? and from
St. Mark, chapter xiv, verses 26 to 30,
more than these Eangelists differ from
each other.'! , The flutes' correspondent
further states that this fragment
seems to have, been written in the
Third century, although, if it is judged
by the style, it ..might be placed as far
bark as the First centiuy. Dn Uickell
is of the opinion that " the iragment
must be the copy of a manuscript,
older than those from which the accepted
versions of St. Matthew and St
Mark have been taken." The question
is still unsettled, however, and
Professor Karabaceqk of Vienna is now
studying the manuscript,' a facsimile of
It which will be nubltsihed.
We are willing to admit that the
is "very reluctant to' speak
harshly of the present; detective staff,"
as we are also willing to admit thaf the
gentle organ is "very reluctant, to
speak harshly " of anything or anybody
connected with the Government. Since
our morning contemporary has been so
kind as to admit it was wrong about
discriminations being made here
against American shipping, we are
also willing to admi( the justice of its
editorial of yesterday morning' on the
"Prevalent Lawlessness vahd'the Police,"
as far as it went, but we object
that it did not go, logically, far enough.
There is also somewhat ofrhumor in
the following sally t " It appears to us,
however, that' it is about itime there
should come a change of some kind
either that the, thieves shpuld,steal the
police or that the police should detect
and arrest some of the thieves." It
would be difficult to discover, however,
what the thieves would want to steal
the police for thieves are not in the
habit of stealing native ofaldf'ki their
late operations .show, ljut jokirjaside,
whp is responsible for the " prevalent
lawlessness" and the insufficiency of
the police ? 'f here is but one aqswer and
that is that the present Administration
is responsible, both in law and "in act
If the present Administration is charged
with the responsibility the stereotyped
answer of " no funds" will be returned-
But who is responsible for there being
a lak of inpney to properly run the
Government? Why, the present Administration,
of course, who started
with funds in the Treasury, The Advertiser
will coollysinform the public, as
it has in the psist,, that theQoposhjon
is responsible for all the evils that Hawaii
is. heir to, by standing directly in
the way of the " party of progress,""
which is advancing the interests of its
leaders by running the country into
debt. What the tax-payers wanttfis a
practical Government for the people,
and it is what? theywill have in the

Sir : Thursday evening last about
eight o'clock people in the neighbor
hood of Punchbowl and Queen streets
wereVta7tVedby thTierriffic screams of
a woman for assistance,. Parties at
once rushed for the place whence the
distressing cries ar,ose, but the police,
Urjless it was a special who seemed to
be as much at a loss . to know whatito
do as he Swaisl unacquainted with he
native i language', were nowhere ' to' be
seen or heard. After some minutes,
when quietness was again resumed, a
native pohcetyiih game, but jnste'ad of
making investigations imo ine matter,
he joined a group of natives not far
distant and seenied to ioin in the mer
riment occasioned by the witticisms of
the crowd, and on being requested to
do something' iri the matter muttered
some contemptuous answer.
While we have such a police force, is
it a wonder that robberies and. burglaries
arc committed with impunity and
the perpetrators arc seldom if ever apprehended?
The cause of the dis'tuibance was a
wife being beaten by a brutal husband,
who is supposed to be receiving treatment
in the hospital, but who comes
out regularly under the shades of night
to revel and drink area. The outraged
wife heard of this, and upon last
Tuesday night surprised her shameless
husband in shameless 'c6mpany. Being
detected in his inconstancy he
sought to retaliate by beating her,
which it seem he did to his heart's content,
and which I am thinking he could
be doing up to the time of this going
to press as far as the police are concerned.
Willing to give the "Devil his due,"
I must say that the Advertiser, contrary
to its usual practice, intimated pretty
plainly what appears to be the truth in,
this morning's issue, that the thieves
have stolen the police, or most of them,
for I must admit there are a few exceptionally
good men on the force.
But they are so few that they are
Honolulu, March 5, 1886.
TUo Intout Cubo of "Move Oil."
Evictions of Poles from Prussia c
cite verv little remark from the rest of
the world, but they are in some respects
even greater cruelties than the evictions
of Irish -tenants. The dispossessed
tenant in the worst days was not compelled
to leave Ireland; he might find
shelter in another county or
although other tenants of the
same or neighboring landlords were forbidden
to offer him roof or potatoes.
That part of the Polish population ordered
to quit Prussia is absolutely
turned out of the Prussian territory.
Prince Bismarck, when called to explain,
shuffles and pretends that the
evicted Poles, who are, many of them.
Jews, are "impossible" as Prussian
subjects. A large proportion of the
Poles in Posen arc Roman Catholics,
but it does not yet appear that these
have to go. One account describes
the wholesale eviction of 35,700 persons,
shopkeepers, farmers and their
families, without regard to the common
decencies of humanity. Families where
a child had died in the morning of the
eviction were compelled to bury it at
once, then and there, and to set out on
their journey to the frontier as though"
nothing had happened. Women whose
only fit place was the sick-bed were
driven along on the same cruel match.
It did not even seemt to be clearly ex
plained to them where they were to' go,
except to "get out" of Prussia: and it is
said that numbers of them are hover
ing on the borders of Russia, which
country also shuts them out. Austiia,
to Us credit, has made no move toward
ejipelling what Bismarck calls the
Illustrating tko Iiiqnor Question.
