Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But established for the benefit of all.
FRIDAY, DEC. 7, 1888.
In Honolulu proper comparatively
little road work has been clone for
several weeks past. Inability to
prepare and transport the necessary
material to where it is needed lor
use, in sufficient quantities, owing
to insufficiency or inefficiency of the
machinery employed, is the cause.
But the amount of road work in the
district is not measured by what we
see risht here in the city. In the
outlying portions of
where other than the hard material
broken by a ciushing machine and
hauled by a locomotive is used, con
siderable road making has been ac
complished. The Ewa road fiom
Kalihikai to beyond the hill on the
Pearl Haibor side of Moanalua
Valley has been completed, and an
excellent toad it now is. Work has
been in progross for a good many
weeks on the Kalihi Valley road, be
ginning near the Kamehameha
Schools. The IVaialae road from
Moiliili to near Captain Ross's
ranch, a distance of between two
and three miles, has also had consi
derable attention. This thorough
fare was, and had been for many
years, in a very rough condition,
even for horsoback travel. It is now
a good carriago road, over which
one can drive with ease and comfort.
The undertaking involved a large
amount of labor in removing large
rocks, building up tho loadbed, etc.
Several other minor thoroughfares
have also been constructed outside
of Honolulu, for which those ho
require to use them are 'truly grate
ful. On the whole, perhaps the out
lying portions of the district are bet
ter off in the matter of roads than
THE INSULAR TYPE OF CHARAC
TER. In tho discussions going on in the
public prints about the state of so
ciety, and tho political future of
these islands, there is an olement,
. or factor in the problem, that has
not received tho attention which its
importance deserves. It is difllcult
for any sot or race of mon to free
themselves from tho influences of
their environment. Much of tho
fault-findiDg with certain disagree
able characteristics, altogether too
prominent in society and politics at
tho Islands, may bo traced to tho
too common neglect to notice the
peculiar circumstances from amidst
which these influences and traits are
evolved.' Yot is it not evident, on a
' feyv momenta consideration, that
much of tho social and political
peculiarities of people here are at
tributable to an insular typo of
character, an aggravated type of
'what are commonly calied provin
cial traits in distinction from metro
politan or cosmopolitan?
It bo happens that in tho present
instance, ns a mere accidental
' accessory, not as an cssen-
laJijittribMe, that the sec 01 peopie
Ibbst prominent In society and in the
Government, are moro or less close
ly identified with tho descendants of
the leligious teacheis, who came to
these islands from America. "What
ever disagrccablo trails of character
they may have shown, or others
fancy they have shown, aio stigma
tized as "missionary." Various
articles, however, fiom different
correspondents, have bi ought out
the fact, that this opprobrious epi
thet, like most popular slang lan
guage, in singling out some one
quality for notice and naming,
misses the vital point, tho little
differentiating characteristic. So
far as "missionary" is confounded
with "religions" in our Honolulu
phraseology, the aggregate of trails
thus opprobriously designated be
longs piopcrly to the "insular"
type of character. Religion, true
religion, should make a man philan
thropic, courteous, patient. Petti
ness, tale-bearing, arbitrariness, aio
traits associated with the insular
type of character. The arbitrary
notions, the inconsistent 'policy, the
frequent disregard of avowed princi
ples, shown by tho Reform Party
under its quadruples leadership and
back-stairs directory, are what
might be expected from a commu
nity that has not yet thrown off its
thraldom to a coterie. If these
leaders are already finding them
selves without a party to back them
up, that is only what has happened
in these islands time and again,
where people arc taken up, inn
after, and then dropped inconti
nently for the next new sensation.
Some of our correspondents, arc
suggesting annexation, or threatening
absorption, by some of the Great
Powers, as 'the remedy or result of
tho many unpleasant complications
in our present social, business,
ecclesiastical, and political relations.
But the progress of events is ripen
ing other influences, that will do for
this island community, what no out-
side pressure, what no hot-house
methods of forcing giowth can
hasten foiward. Here are different
nationalities now congicgated, whoso
rights must all he respected in the
political evolutions of the coming
years, not simply the selfish inter
ests of any predominant race, or

into closer relations with other
countries by ocean steamships, and
submarine cables. We shall not
then be able to cherish any exclu
sive notions, or miscalculate our
own importance, or indulge in any
high-handed pranks of arbitrary,
inconsistent, personal rule. Mean
time we must be patient with one
another, true to our individual con
victions, persistent in our advocacy
of the right. "Vc must be willing
each to mend his own ways, and

HAS NOT THE WHOOPING COUGH.
Editou Bulletin : Bclievinglhat
some person maliciously reported
that "Mr. Chr. Gertzislaid aside by
whooping cough," I sincerely beg
that the statement be corrected.
Every day between 7 o'clock a. m.
and fl o'clock p. m. Mr. Gertz may
be seen near the fishmaiket over
seeing the breaking up of the bark
Lilian. He is perfectly well and has
not the whooping cough, neither has
any member of his family.
I remain yours respectfully,
QUESTIONS TO MR. HORNER.
Editou Bulletin: Mr. Y. M.
Horner is constantly demanding
prohibition, and advocating it eaily
and late. He must be admired for
the tenacity lie shows and for the
amount of labor lie perforins ns an
advocate of total piohibition. Now,
every man has a perfect right to ex
press his views, but he must not
deny others the same liberty, and
there is where Mr. Homer goes too
far. Of course, ho don't prohibit
mo or anybody else from publishing
our opinion, but ho denies us tho
right to be henid, or in other words,
he is intoleiaut in the highest de
gree. Whether that is consistent
with true Christianity or not, I
think need not lie discussed. I will
venture to ask Mr. Horner the fol
1. Is the moderate and legiti
mate use of liquors a sin, and if so,
where is the proof?
2. Am I not entitled to be reck
oned amongst the educated, honor
ed, reliable and respectable people,
because I drink my glass- of beer or
wine at my dinner?
3. Have I not the individual light
lo do so, just as much us others
havo the right of total abstinence?
1. What is more despicable and
moio sinful, the moderate use of
liquor or itnmoderato eating?
5. If my wife or my daughter can
and do drink wine, nro they there
fore to bo shunned, and considered
worthy of ostracism ?
My position lias brovigiit ino in
contact with many nationalities, and
1 havo visited most countries in the
world with tho exception of Asia,
tho countries boarding the Mediter
ranean ,and Africa, and I havo had
considerable to do with statistical
work, and I must say, that where
the standard of a man's ijfetiino is
highest liquor is used. 1 do not
mean misused, as more than liquor
can be used to excess. If I, a
moderate user of liquor, die at 40
years of uge, who dare say I would
have lived 10 years longer if I had
not used it? And does Mr. Homer
think that he alone, or his adher
ents ate infallible, and only knows
what is good for me?
I will openly say, that my experi
ence shows me that prohibition
to a superlativo degree fosters hypo
crisy. I have known and seen
hundicds of people who openly and
publicly said they practised total
abstinence, and secretly drank their
liquor. 1 wonder who commits the
giave sin, one who drinks and says
so, or one who drinks on the sly,
and denies it?
Once on a steamer I heard a pio
hibition man giv6 tho steward a
thoiough scolding, because the
lunch was not geod enough, and be
cause he did not have this or that on
tho table. Wo had three courses,
and everything was excellent. That
same man, in spite of his dissatis
faction, consumed ns much as three
ordinary men. Now, I took my
glass of wine, of which I had a small
pocket flask, ate a good meal, and
was contented. Who committed
sin, I, who drank my wine, or he,
who made his stomach his god?
I think the best the so-called pro
hibition parly can do is to help to
legislate against the abuse of liquor,
and not to become obstructionists,
te.ich the people the dangers of in
dulging too much, make them to
abhor the drunkard, but admit that
liquor can be used legitimately.
As it is not a question of persons,
but of principle, I will abstain from
using such strong expressions and
words that very often Mr. Homer
indulges in, and only invite him to
an exchange of ideas in a way be
Very tiuly yours,
Editou Bulletin: Although the
time to the next general election is
quite distant, yet it seems that pre
parations for campaigning arc up
permost in tho minds ot a great
many. It is quite interesting to
listen to some, of what they have
done, and what they are going to
do. Agieat many who would be
Nobles, or Representatives, or Cabi
net Ministers, aic already harrangu
ing all those who are disposed to
listen to them. A great many of
those who are talking loudest, also
show their wortli as statesmen or
politicians. Not unfrcquentiy do
we hear them, quite often in un
measured terms, express their
chugiin at their so called bad
treatment, which theyieccived from
the lief oi m Party. "I have shoul
dered a rifle," and "I have been
on the platform at the great mass
meeting," and "I went electioneer
ing for the Candidates of the Reform
Party," and "what ha"s the Reform
Patty done lor me in return for my
services? Nothing, even not a
policeman's billet." "Out with the
Reform Party." Such are the words
we are quite often compelled to
listen to. But what of the moral
standard of those who are uttering
these words? Do tho words, "ye
hypocrites and pharisecs," not apply
to these, in a political sense? Do
these parties know their duties to
their country and fellow citizens?
Arc their motives and actions in the
interests of their country, or arc
they the outgrowth of selfishness.
Ought they to be entrusted with the
people's off nil s? or ought they to
be placed at work with pick and
It is not my intention to champion
or defend the Reform Government.
"Give the devil his due," is a senti
ment quite in favor. The Reform
Government has certainly caused
some improvements, but it has also
fallen short of the people's most
sanguine expectations. All the pro
mises bofore election wcro simply
promises made, and promises to re
main. Still tho Reform Party might
yet redeem its promises, by put
ting up the right kind of a platform
at the next general election. Let
them solemnly pledge their candi
dates to have such legislation passed
as will for once and nil settle the
"Chinese question," by enacting a
"Chinese Exclusion Act;" also to
nhollsh everything relating to that
outrageous, tyrrunnical, and slavery
upholding act relating to "Con
tract Labor System."
Finally, a few words more. To
stiangcrs it must be nt all times a
cause of astonishment, not to say of
disappointment, lo see a community
of say 100,000, constantly wrang
ling with politics and political par
ties. I believe it was Rev. Father
Zalun, of Notre Dame, Indiana, U,
S. A., who, in a series of articles
on the Hawaiian Islands, wrote
amongst other things, that tho poli
tical parties of this country could
not bo told, as there were so many.
In fact tho only names a person
could give the different parlies,wero
the "In'B," and "Outs," as they
were constantly changing.
So much for a stranger's words.
Aie they unfounded or not? Havo
