Tin' reprint article, mulct the above heading, from the San Fran cisco Jitilhtin, which appears in our issue lo-ilay, gives a much bet ter view of social conditions and opinions on these' Islands than we are accustomed to read in the columns of out big foreign contem poraries. It is true that very large conttibutions of money and laborers have been made by the religious bodies of the States for civilizing and Christianizing the Islands, and it is no less true that the " lax ways which have crept into the adminis tration" would, if not vigorously opposed, in a very shoit time, undo all tho Christianizing and civilizing which have been accomplished ; -and the heathen practices of past ages would be restored, and to them would be superadded the more re fined depravity of the worst phases of perverted civilization. In the United Spates, and other countries possessing complete con stitutional systems, and a hcalthy tone of public opinion, an erratic administration can be brought to book, but in this Kingdom, a large number of the so-called representa tives are virtually the personal pro pert' of the administration, being civil service olllcials, and the tone of public opinion is very well ex pressed by our trans-l'acilio name sake, "As for the natives of most of these islands, they do not care a bauble who governs them, so they arc left to their ways." The Cab inet, is therefore practically beyond the reach of those corrective bi ll nonces which bear directly upon governments in other countries. The ideas advanced in the article referred to, that a great Inter-Island Republic may be formed here, either independently or by annexation to some otlrer power, may bo worth taking into serious consideration at some future day. At present, events arc not ripe for transferring the matter from the arena of jour nalistic speculation to the field of practical politics. The Inter-Island Republic is something very pretty for newspaper men to dream about, but the present social structure of this Kingdom is of too heterogeneous a character to admit of any mdical changes in our autonomy or in our relations to other powers. The first and greatest task before the states men of Hawaii, if there arc any, is to secure for the Kingdom free and independent representative institu tions. "When public opinion acquires sulllcient momentum to effect the present much needed reforms, it will have developed some of the neeessaiy qualillcations for dispos , ing of questions of great national import. EDITORIAL NOTES. The public debt of the United States was reduced during the month of October, over thirteen millions of dollars. Will any one tell us how much the Hawaiian national debt was reduced during the same period? There is great activity in the Roman Catholic Chinch throughout the United States, on the temper ance question, owing to a strong letter' issued by the Plenary Council at Baltimore. Already the saloon keepers belonging to the Church 'in Philadelphia have been induced to give up their Sunday tralllc. George Augustus Sala left Auck land, New Zealand, on Dec. 2nd, for Sydney, N. S. W. The latter days of his stay in the former city were spiced with a little unpleasantness, caubeil by the JJcll deprecating Mxo honors paid to a, newspaper correspondent and nn actor (Sain and Uoucicnult), who it intimated hail only selfish objects in visiting the country. At a farewell lcccp tion by prominent citizen'' on the day of his dcparluic, Sala wannly resented the ungenerous treatment of the newspaper above-named. The Hell promised to give him u .'ili' dlctory in its next issue A private letter fjoni Washing ton states lh:r the charge of Ha waiian affairs, . i!tig Hon. Jlr. Carter'- absence mission to Europe, has been leit m the hands of the Peruvian Minister. Our in formant, the recipient of tho letter, regards this as a peculiar act on the pail of the Government, when lion. Dr. Smith, a gentleman thoroughly conversant with Hawaiian interests as well as devoted to them, is in Washington, it is supposed, on Gov ernment business. Particularly is it desirable that the Kingdom should he represented cffeclivelj' at the present time, when Congress is sit ting and action may be taken pre judicial to the Treat at any mo ment. A special despatch to the Provi dence Journal from London states that a portion of Sir John Mac donald, the Canadian Premier's, business in the metropolis is to con fer with Lord John Manners, the Imperial Postmaster-General, at the lattcr's desire, on the subject of subsidizing the Canadian Pacific Railway for conveying the British mails to India, China and Australia. This looks promising for Honolulu becoming a port of call, in the near future, for another very important line of steamships, accompanied, perhaps, with a measure of reci procity providing for a free cxchairge of Hawaiian products with at least the coal and lumber of the Dominion of Canada. THE ALLEGED WASTE OF WATER. Kimon Bi'j.i.rriN : My statement in your Monday's paper that the artesian wells at Waialua wcic per mitted to How wastcfully was given on information which 1 thought trustworthy. I am glad to learn by the statement of Mr. Gasper Sylva that I was misinformed. I' would not knowingly do him an injustice. L. MoCui.i.y. Pawaa, December 23, 1885. A CORRECTION. Now could J ill ink hot blood, And do such hitter business as the day Would quake lo look on. iSfiaf.es. Eurron Bui.t.ktin : Your "Rush ing Set-em-up," to whom was entrusted the "first take" on my answer to "Aloha " which appeared in your issue of the 9th inst., unin tentionally made an "out" in my article which gives an appearance to the immediate ncighboihood of the fifty-fifth lino, where the mishap occuired, similar to that of a finely coopered-up washtub from which the bottom had suddenly and myster iously disappeared. What I wrote was as follow.-,: "And lo piove that prohibition in the liquor traffic has been, is, and always will be a total failure wherever it has bpen, is, or may be attempted, to be forced upon an enlightened community." By giving space to this much needed correction, you will greatly obligo your deeply injured Nota. Bi:nk. Honolulu, Dec. 10, 1885.
