THE PACOTC COMMEECIAL ADVEETISEE, NOVEMBER 25, 1884 THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN THE UNITED STATES. For the benefit of those of our Island readers who may not have ac cess to the figures from other source3, we reprint from the San Francisco Merchant the following table show ing the result of the Presidential election in the States of the Union so far as ascertained up to the loth inst.

Believing the editor of the Bulletin to be fully aware of the gravity of such a statement, it is not asking too much of him to prove his two, or either one, of his assertions. (POLICE) " GAZETTE " JOURNALISM. Every community, large or small, is cursed with the presence of those whose appetite for prurient, filthy " news" is so strong as to obliterate those feelings of common decency that should restrain them. In large communities there is generally, a sufficient number of such to form a clientelle which will support one or more newspapers devoted to the dis semination of mal-odorous gossip, and the talk of the slum?. if Here, in Honolulu, journalists gen erally have avoided this sort of thing, knowing that the tastes of their patrons at large are too refined, their sense of what is right and proper too strong to permit of their caring to see in print unnecessary disclosures of things secret or vile. But, it now appears that, in the judgment of the responsible editor of the Gazette, the time has come when his patrons should be regaled with such low, Police Gazette journalism as the writer of the account of the late fatal fracas indulges in in one lengthy paragraph. There is no need to comment upon the paragraph in question, except to say that it is not only vulgar, but entirely uncalled for. Anyone can read it who chooses to do so, even the pupils in the school over which the Gazette editor presides. "Whether the thoughts suggested, the curiosity excited, the impressions produced on those young minds by doing so will be such as to make easier their teacher's task of training them to be good men and women the future will tell. ICOHXUXICATED. I My name is Hans Gundertburst. Ze great ambition or mine life is to sbmoke mine farder's pipe. ' Ven mine farder comes home from' ze market, be sits in his big arm-shair, and takes his big pipe from ze cubboard, loads him up to ze brim vith tabac, pats ze fire to him, and zen he pouf, pouf, pouf and looks so subremely happy, zatl say to mineself, Ilaus, mine boy, it vill be a proud day for you Ten you can shmoke zat pipe.

Christmas time is near at hand, and al ready some of our stores have broken out with toys and seasonable goods. The next steamer ought to bring Santa Claus himself with a general assortment of holiday good3. Dr. Webb has located permanently in Honolulu, at the corner of Richard and Beretania streets. Dr. Webb is well and favorably known as a medical practitioner on these Islands, and during his recent ab sence he has been closely engaged in the study of special diseases. A little disturbance took place at Long Branch bathing-house on Saturday evening, in reference to the Presidential election. The parties came to blows, but were speedily separated by their friends, each retreating into the surf to bathe his wounds, "which did the seas incarnadine," No. 4 of the Australian Tropical Planter was received by the steamship Zealandia yesterday, and in its pages there is much to interest our planters and agriculturalists generally. The change of name from The Sugar Panter is a good one, the new name indicating better the large scope of tho journal better than the o!d one. The number of letters handed in at the Post Office on Satuiday and Sunday amounted to 9316, including those brought by the inter-island steamers, the latter alone numbering 4679. The mails received and despatched by the Zealandia, amounted altogether to 2907 letters, making a total of 12,223 letters received and despatched be tween Saturday and Monday mornings. A quiet wedding took place at the resi dence Mr. T. M. Henderson, on Saturday afternoon. The contracting parties were Mr. William H. Richardson and Miss Annie Wilson. The Rev. Mr. Oggel, ot the Bethel Union Church, performed the ceremony. Mr. Richardson has recently come to the firm of Messrs. Benson, Smith &, Co., on Fort street. The bride comes from Nova Scotia, and arrived last Saturday on the Alameda. Mr. and. Mrs. Richardson are staying, for the present, at the Hawaiian Hotel. It is a little late in the day to talk about or criticize regatta matters ; but it is not too late to correct an error made by a co temporary in its account of the races. To the H. Y. B. C. belongs all the credit of the fitting out of the steamer Planter as a flag ship that day, to the providing of refresh ments and courteous waiters, to the means of transportation to and from the shore, and, in short, to the whole arrangement as far as the Planter was concerned. The com mittee on the races did what they had to do well and completely ; but its members do not wish for praise that does not belong to them. In a paragraph in a late (November 8) number of the Sugar Boicl and Farm Journal, it is stated that the proposed trial of a diffusion of sugar apparatus by the United States Government has been post poned. This ha3 been caused by the diffi culty encountered in having the apparatus mode in time. The writer of the paragraph goes on to say that it is hoped that further data about diffusion, as applied to cane, may be obtained soon, "as we learn Sandwich Island planters, and also a large company in Aska (?) have organized to test it more fully with cane in their respective localities." Buy your brown hats for the grand Cleve land torchlight procession at the O.P.M.B. A number of Chinamen are at work re pairing the road to Waimanalo. On our seventh page to-day will be found a striking and instructive illustration of the comparative worth of the various kinds of baking powders in the market. f A valuable horse, belonging to Mr. H. T. 'Walker, the engineer at Waimanalo, broke its knee by stepping into a hole concealed by the grass. The horse had to be killed. . Reports say that a mile foot race will shortly take place between Sims and Gan nen.. Both men are in good condition, so that the race promises to be an exciting one. If you want to enjoy a hearty laugh, go to the skating-rink. The efforts of the skaters to keep their perpendicular are highly lu dicrous. If you don't believe it, try it your self. The I. I. S. S. Company give notice that tickets for both first and second class pas sengers will be provided after the first of December. Those who neglect to purchase tickets will be charged extra. The repairs and improvements in Mr. 'John Cummins' sugar mill at Waimanalo (were completed last Thursday evening. The 'mill will start working again early next week. Mr. Cummins expects a crop of about 2000 tons this year. The steam. roller was busy last week at the fish market crushing down the road metal lately dumped there,. All that is needed now is a good rain to settle the ma terial, and there will be a good road where there was formerly a mud puddle. The annual report of the Royal Hawaiian Agricultural Society has been published, and though it contains nothing new in ad dition to what has appeared in the papers heretofore, yet the proceedings of the last annual meeting is presented in a compact form, together with a list of the awards at the last show. -Messrs. Barnes and McCandless have just completed an artesian well for. His Majesty at Kalili. The well .which is 505 feet deep and cased with 1 casing, is 32 feet above the sea-level, and flows 9 inches over the top of the pfpe. We congratulate Messrs. Barnes and McCandless upon having secured such an abundant flow of water. The amount at which various coins will be taken at the office of the Tax-Collector on and after December 1st has been fixed as follows: Mexican dollars 83 cants, five-franc pieces, including the Italian and Greek coins of that denomination, 85 cemts; sov ereigns, $4.75; smooth quarters, 15 cents; other quarters and halves in proportion to the value of the dollars of same countries. i The upper hall in the Y. M. C. A. building was filled with an appreciative audience last Saturday evening, who were met to welcome to Honolulu Mrs. Mary Clement Leavitt, 'who comes here to prosecute the work of temperance amongst this peo ple. The exercises were opened by singing and prayer, after which the lecturer de livered an address on the purposes of the mission. At the conclusion of the address, a committee of lsfdies was formed to make arrangements for a vigorous campaign, and the audience dispersed. Work on the Kilauea Houhas commenced. Examination has , shown that it will be necessary to fit the vessel with a new keel throughout almost her whole length. In addition there will be a new stern and steer ing post fitted, and the vessel will require new planking for five or six streaks up trom the keel. While bumping on the rocks some of the copper bolt3 were forced up through the lead sleeve around the pro pellor shaft. This will necessitate a new sleeve, and these repairs will probably not be completed under a week or ten days. " The best score on record with a Spring field " rifle, published iu a late number of the San Francisco Chronicle, gives an aver age of the shooting by three members of Company A, Second Artillery, as 4125, 42, and 40-3. This is not so much better after all, as the average of the score made the other day by Mr. Unger with a Springfield at the same distance 200 yards. His record shewed an average of 38-1. Mr. Wilson's average on the same occasion, shooting with a Winchester, was 3925 and both gentle men feel confident they can beat their own score. The International Tract and Missionary Society have opened a Free Reading Koom at No. 183, Nuuanu Avenue, where they will always be happy to see those who wish tp examine more closely their publications. These works can also be found at the Hono lulu Library, and in the reading-room of the Y. M. C. A. building. The Agents of the Ssciety report that they have everywhere throughout the world found their worke admitted to the libraries established for the benefit of the public. Now and then they meet with those in charge of public reading-rooms whose sectarian prejudices are so strong, or religious views so narrow, as to eause them to refuse the Society permission to lay their publications before those who frequent those particular places. One such party has been found west of the Pacific Coast - but only one. Tho Honolulu Typographical Union was organized last Saturday evening. Great excitement was caused by the ar rival of the Alameda on Saturday, bringing the result of the Presidential election. Most of the Blaine party, upon hearing of their defeat, immediately had the white hats painted; in fact, we might pay, they "were done brown." In consequence of the Alameda and Kinau coming in together on Saturday, the postal officials did not commence the delivery of letters till past 1 p. m.' The bark Helen M. Almy and the barken tiue Jane A. Falkinburg, that have been for years in the Hawaiian Carrying Fleet, are now in the cod-fishing trade. jThrough Mr. McKinley, U. S. Consul, we learn that Mr. John A. Beckwith has been appointed U. S. Consular Agent at Hilo, vice Capt. Thos. Spencer, deceased, Notwithstanding the excitement attend ant upon the reception of the news by the Alameda, there were but few drunks run in at the Police Station last Saturday night. The weather (owing to the fine rain that was falling) was quite 'cold" for those who wore white hats, about the time the Ala meda came alongside tho wharf. There waa a lot of chil(l)Blains caught. K ; One of the Hawaiians who stowed away On board the bark C. O. Whitmore on her last voyage from this port, has been sent jjack by James G. Swan, Esq., Hawaiian Consul at Port Towasend. I I By Presidential decree the date for the next great Universal Exposition in Paris has been fixed for May 6, 1889. That leaves just about enough time for Hawaii to pre pare an exhibit, moving at her aceustomed pace in such matters. The business like and popular purser of the Alameda has taken unto himself a fair wife, and the happy pair have the best wishes of all who know the bride-groom nd hope to know the bride, for, their health and lifelong happiness. An amusing incident happened on Sat urday. One of the Blaine party, who, on hearing of Cleveland's triumph, had had his white tile painted brown, met a lady acquaintance, and forgetting the paint wag still wet, raised his hat, and immediately shook the ladies' white-kid gloved hand. Tableau. An analysis of the popular vote cast here on the 3d shows that there was 26 States represented. Of these, 16 were Republican, representing 108 electoral votes, and 10 Democratic, representing 127 electoral votes. Hence the majority of electoral rotes for Blaine was 41, which was three more than the actual number for Cleveland in the States. . The Hon. L. Aholo has'returned from his visit to tho United States, and expresses himself as. very much pleased and interested in what he saw and heard. He was pre sented to President Arthur, at tho White House, by H. H. Minister Resident, Mr. H. A. P. Carter, and had an opportunity whilo in the States of seeing much that was new and interesting. The Herald of Trade says, under date Nov. 15th: "Work on tho Classified Busi ness Directory of San Francisco, George Bowser publisher, is progressing rapidly and satisfactory. The sale of the book promises to largely exceed expectations. Mr. J. E. Wiseman, Honolulu, has been appointed agent for the islands. He will receive sub scriptions and advertisements." . The Hawaiian bark Augusta, recently libelled at Port Townsend, and sold by the U. S. Marshal, is now at Port Blakely, undergoing repairs, the cost of which ig estimated at twice the sum the vessel brought. It is intended to place her under the American flag. Heretofore she sailed under a Consular certificate granted by the Hawaiian Consul at San Francisco. Another San Francisco journalist is visit ing the Islands Mr. M. Guenblatt, editor of the German Democrat, which, in spite of its name, is a supporter of the Republican party. Mr. Gueenblat proposes to spend a few weeks in the Kingdom, and will go to windward per steamer Kinau to-day. Brother journalists who wish to pay their respects to him will find him domiciled at the Hawaiian Hotel when in town. Last Wednesday afternoon, tho 19th inst., while one of the Portuguese laborers of Ookala Plantation, Hawaii, was engaged in conveying sugar to the S. S. Lehua, a big rock rolled down the steep hill at the land ing, and struck him on the head, crushing the skull in completely, causing instan taneous death. The Portuguese was a valued workman. His name is Antone Silva, and he leaves a wife and two children to mourn his loss. His Ex. H. A. P. Carter and Hon. J. Mott Smith lately paid a visit to Washington to examine a "diffusion" sugar plant. This had been put for experimental purposes at the expense of the Gove.nment of tho United States, and is to have a trial in Louisiana. It is claimed for the pro cess that the results are 15 per cent better than by crushing. Drawings of the ma chinery were sent by the Alameda to Messrs. C. Brewer it Co., Limited and to Messrs. Castle & Cooke.
