on the old adage
yesterday and blew

7trf IaaTia. ?. f it ...
I'Ul LIUiirVt! in "Mnmn A
' at lhe "nucha's pair of
;," "'" ll'cn me races as usual
his year; that the sidewalks of Honolulu
arc like Government arguments,
iarf consequentIy full of breaks
mid holes ; that the entertainment at
Oahu College night before last left
many pleasant memories; that the
music of the band was blown out to
sea night before last; that the harbor
will be alive with frowning war-ships
by the time the Legislature meets;
that the political policy of the present
Administration is no more a representation
of the taxpayers than a pound
of taro would be of Hawaiian industries
; that a venerable nolitical lit? is
again being circulated to protect and
cover the actions of the
tion politicians; that the stionccst ar
gument 111 favor of reform in the organic
law is that the taxpayers are not
represented under the present form;
that the next move of the Government
will be another attempt to "muzzle"
the press ; that the people of the other
Islands intend kicking about the
road tax distribution tor the next bi
ennial period ; that the people of Hawaii
must make up their minds to be
self-dependant ; that the wind played
merry havoc with the flower gardens
yesterday; that the billiard shots
around town are talking of getting up
a billiard tournament about the time
of the races ; that the telephone wires
are all at "cross purposes ;" that the
richest man in the Kingdom is the
poorest in some respects; that the
next Legislature will receive the hearty
co-operation of the Premier; that
some bills will be passed which will
cause the taxpayers to kick, and, perhaps,
not with a practical result in the
future ; that the Government ought to
obliterate the distinction they have
made in the past between might and
right ; that the boys arc all afraid to
serenade their girls since the "burglar
scare" took possession of Honolulu ;
that the boys ought to devise some
plan to serenade their girls without
treating the whole family to sick music
; that an assurance of truth is not
always proof that His Sacied Majesty
has climbed out of the well; that
business men habitually admit this to
be practical fact ; that Honolulu society
will soon be treated to a batch of
sensational gossip; that the burglars
have abandoned Honolulu ; that the
wind ruined the Merchant street dude's
clothes yesterday by blowing the dust
into them ; that tfie "only Millis'' will
receive a grand welcome on his return
from the other Islands ; that yesterday
was the dullest day Honolulu has seen
in many a month ; and that the people
want to know who the fair .v are.
Answers to Correspondents.
Little Girl Yes; Mr. Millis will
give.another show when he returns to
Honolulu, as you will see by the advertisement
which will appear in to-morrow's
Street-Cleaner No, for goodness'
Sake don't propose a sti eel-sweeping
machine to the authorities. Don't you
know that our streets .are already in
such delicate health that they will
hardly stand scraping with a- lazy hoe
and brushing with an old broom ?
I Iorseman We are indeed sorry for
you, but what can you do ? It is really
too bad that you have paid out so
much money to bring a horse here from
California, and then find yourself barred
out of the race. We agree with you
that the present Jockey Club
looks very much like a put-up
job, which ought to be ventilated perhaps
it will be.
Caiiinet Your question is pertinent,
but we cannot give you much information.
We understand, however, that
theie ivas& Cabinet council held at the
Palace last Sunday morning, which was
specially called to consider the case of
incorrigible Dr. Arning. We have been
infoimed that as one man couiu not
break the back of science, the Govern
ment is determined that the wnoie
council shall sit upon it.
Inquirer Your question is quite
impertinent. As to why Ah Lau was
not ninm than ftico for bcinc con
victed the second time for having
opium in his possession we cannot tell
you. The explanation you offer, "that
perhaps as he is a regular ueuici
opium he is fined less than occasional
dealers," we do not consider tenable,
and besides we are fully convinced that
if it was you who was convicted and
fined for the same offense you would
consider $50 and forty days quite sufficient.
Police Court Itoxns.
Tuesday, March 30th.
Two drunks, $6 each.
Lizzie charged with assault and battery;
fined $5 and $3 rosts.
Ah Lau, charged with having opium
in possession; fined $50 and sentenced
to imprisonment at hard labor
for 40 days.
