THE PLANTERS' MONTHLY ERRS.
The "Planters' Monthly" is not
always accurate in its statements.
In an article on "Coffee Growing
and Curing," it says that "prior to
1876, there was neve a plantation
of sugar or rice" (on these islands)
"that paid a prolit to its owneis
from its earnings." Wc are inform
ed that not lobs than Unee or four
sugar plantations weie managed at
n profit previous to that lime, and
know for a i-eit.iinty that Campbell
and Turlon's plantation at La
haina was payiug handsomely
years before 1870. The same
article refeis to the island cof
fee as "a product which is incom
parably superior to that grown in
any other country." No one will
deny that our colfee is an excellent
article, supeiior to that of most cof
fee countries ; but to say that it is
"incomparably superior to that
grown in any other country," is
stretching the tiuth. Experts have
pronounced it slightly infeiior to the
famous TMoeha coffee.
MILK SHAKES OUT OF PLAGE.
The milk shake business seems to
continue in a prosperous condition.
The rattle of the machines by which
the "shake" is created may be heard
all over the town. Travelling out
fits visit the subuibs by day and by
night, and also peddle the shakes
tlnough the streets of the city.
Wherever the Band gives a concert,
there the shaking machines congie
gate, and appear to do a thriving
trade. Theie were six or eight of
these noisy machines at the Emma
Square concert the other night.
Judging from the amount of patron
age bestowed upon them, their
presence must have been appreciat
ed by a considerable portion of the
public gathering. IJut many others
of the company weie annoyed at tho
rattle, and gave expression to their
annoyance in plain language, some
of them in forcible language. They
went to the Square to hear the mu
sic, and the discordant sound of the
milk shake machines did not im
prove its quality. Persons who ap
preciate the music of the hand,- and
go to the concerts for the sake of
the music, cannot be expected to
appreciate the discord created by
the milk shake vendors. At least
the machines should bo kept at a
distance, where their rattle cannot
spoil the music."
THE "ADVERTISER" OH MIS
SIONARIES. Editou Bulletin: The man Fri
day of the "Adveitiser" if we are to
believe his own opinion of himself
"Advertiser, Nov. 2d as he quotes
the sentence in praiso of Darwin's
description of "Missionaries," dif
fers essentially and radically from
most of the persons who write about
missionaries in the Daily Bulletin
in being a gentleman and not a
blackguard. Just so: the Pharisee
.racket again. There's another "re
spect" in which the writer of the
"Advertiser" article differs from
some of the writers in the Bulletin,
in this: that the latter are not sala
ried Government ofllcials who should
have been kicked out long ago for
incompetency, and would have been
but for the fact of being party heel
eis and "in need of tho salary."
Further than this, Mr. Editor, it's
tho same old dodge: drawing tho
; proverbial herring ucross the trail,
and urging people to believe that
missionaries in the abstract, and
. the Hawaiian "missionary political
"party" are identical; and therefore
the latter should be praised and
'their opponents anathematized.
'"The only fact which tho writer of
this couiinunicatioii has ever urged
'against the missionaries in tho abs
tract is, that they made themselves
'rich whilo serving God on starvation
salaries, at the expense of the abor
igines whom they "converted." In
the words ef Evarts, when referring
to tho Puritans: "When they Jand-
IM iJ II L,1
oil, thoy praised God, and foil upon
their knees, and then fell upon the
nboiigiues." This, however, wns not
n political offence, and if they could
make the act tally with their elastic
consciences, it was nobody's busi
ness but their own, and tho said
Tho "missionary party," however,
is quite a different thing. It is the
offshoot and successor of that por
tion of the missionaries who, as a
political faction, owned and domin
ated Hawaiian politics nnd people
so many years, and developed into
a political family compact which
ostracized all and sundry who were
not of tho "faithful." Many origi
nal missionaries withdicw from, or
npver became a part of this politi
cal faction. On the other hand
many joined it, who never had any
connection or nlllliation with a mis
sionary, except us a political ally,
whilo others gravitated to it by
marriage, hence "family compact"
which still remains in the vocabu
lary of everybody but the "com
pact" themselves, in close connec
tion with the "missionary party," a
name which even they themselves
are ashamed of, and are trying ho
energetically to discard.
But the Pharisee of the "Adver
tiser," while all the time reprobat
ing personal journalism, doesn't
hesitate to denounce everybody but
"our sweet selves" as blackguards,
people of questionable social stand
ing, etc., etc. If wc were to rake
up the hisloiy of these gentlemen of
the ptescnt missionary party, wc
doubt if a lower slate of blackguard
ism or social morals could anywhere
be found than attaches itself to the
skirts of some of the moguls of that
political faction. "We have names,
facts and figures in our possession,
but these people are known of all
men, and besides, we prefer leaving
personal journalism to the Phari
sees. So far as the writer is con
cerned, no public discussion has
ever occurcd concerning "mission
aiies," except in their public capa
city, and as a political pally. When
the Pharisee of the "Advertiser"
starts the "blackguardism" racket,
he is hereby warned in advance to
observe the old saw about pcoplo
who livo in glass houses. But what
ever happens, let not any elector be
drawn from the real question, by
the argument that because the origi
nal and genuine missionary was a
peaceful and harmless individual,
the people should support their
"political descendants," (if the
term may be allowed) in such acts
of political treachery, imbecility and
pusillanimity which have become a
pait of their political leign and le

A ghastly discovery was made by
a couple of boys in a deserted brick

and Laurel streets Chioago, Oct.
12th. They found an old coal box,
opened it and found the dead bodies
of live babies laid side by side
within. The Thirty-fifth street police
station was notified and the remains
sent to tho Morgue. The bodies were
examined and found to be badly
decomposed. Two were males and
the other three females. One of the
males and one of the females ap
peared to hare lived about two
weeks, while the others had died
shortly after birth. A cuisory ex

the Lehigh station above Penn
Haen, Pa., Oct. 10th. A grand
parade of Catholic societies took
place at Ilazlcton and a large excur
sion was run f i om Wilkcsbanu for
the occasion, composed of lodges,
bands and sightseers liom Wilkes
barre, Nanticoko and other points
along the line. The excursion train
was run in sections and upon their
return trip the rear section ran into
a forward section at Mud Pun about
0 o'clock in the evening with disas
trous results. Several cats of the
forward section were telescoped. A
bulletin issued by the Lehigh Vallej'
Raihoad ofllcials states that fifty-five
were killed and over forty injury in
the disaster. Not a single peison
escaped from the rear car. The
second was crowded with maimed
bleeding bodies, and tho thiid car
had but few passengers who escaped.
Several were scalded to death while
fastened to their seats by the debris.
