A DANCEROUS PRACTICE. ,The Advertiser is excited over a brief item in this paper, of a boy that Bmashed in the end of a ear with a stone. If our contemporary doubts the incident the expenditure of ten ceuta on the cars will take its reporter to and from the damaged ear. r It . will probably cost ten or fifteen dollars to repair the damage, but even that is not what gives the matter its chief importance. "We are about to have a steam railway line opened in addition to the tram ways. Throwing stones at trains and cars is an occasional pastime of hoodlums and toughs in other coun tries. Only four or five weeks ago Prof. Hirst of the University of Ca lifornia was struck- witli a stone thrown into a railway car, and at last accounts he was likely to lose the sight of one eye from the injury. Our authorities cannot be too severe upon any person detected in this dangerous and mad amusement. In the case reported by us the stone smashed in the end of the car, mak ing a deep indentation on a surface of six by four inches. It would haye fractured any skull or broke any bone that it might have struck. We, however, forgive the witless jibe of tbe Advertiser, as the para graph it gets out of the affair is al most the only item of news in this morning's issue. That paper seems to belong to that section of the stone-throwing fraternity which re sides in crystal palaces. NATIVES AND RICE. A letter on Hawaiian affairs in the New York Tribune, by Mr. G. D. Gilman of Boston, a former resident of the islands, is copied by the Ad vertiser with comments. It is very fair on the whole ; but it is not so where it institutes an unfavorable comparison between Chinese and natives, with respect to what the former have done in rice cultivation here. The same thing is often heard in Honolulu, however, and ought to be answered. In the first place, it is unrasonable to expect that the natives should have been able to overtake the Chinese in such a pecu liarly Chinese industry as rice pro motion. Then there was no parti cular necebsity of the Hawaiians to grow rice for food ; they had oilier products needing less toil to bring to fruition, which fully satisfied them in the matter of sustenance. There is nothing so lucrative in the returns from rice growing as to be particu larly alluring to natives or anybody but Orientals born to the industry. it is not impossible to prove, even, that toauy Chinuse lice farms have yielded no profit to successive asso ciations of ownerg and workers. The natives have done and are doing much better for themselves in leas ing their lauds to the Chinese for rice growing instead of wading into the uuwhplesome work tfiemselves. If they are to be blamed let it be for the impiovidence many of them have displayed in sacijflcing their ownership of the land for the grati fication of temporary desires. Those that hold on to laud suitable for rice can inak more out of rents for it than the rlco they could themselves raise Moreover, there is tuoro talk about the groat things done by the Chinese In rice cultivation than seems to be warranted by the degree of importance attained by that pro duct in our trade returns. Much land has been reclaimed from un productive swamps, it ia true ; but the same land would in the course of time, with the certain develop ment of the country's resources, be reclaimed for cultivation anyway if not of rice, of something more nrofltuble. As it, is now. should the I rice market drop below a paying noint and it often has vcrv weak spells this land to be made avail able, for auything more profitable would have to be reclaimed over again, as a rice plantation is more swampy when in bloom than it was in waste primeval. HUMBUG AND SUCH LIKE. Editor Bullltik : Mr. Macfie in his letter on the Chinese question in the P. C. A. makes the following statement: "They (the Chinese) smoke opium and they gamble, which is certainly very shocking and much to be regretted, but nevertheless is there not perhaps a little spice of humbug about virtuous indignation on this score?" Many even among the anti-Chinese believe with Mr. Macfie that such pleas do flavor of humbug and therefore rest their ob jection to the Chinese exclusively on economic grounds, which is the real cause of opposition to this race. Many also believe, however, that there is not only a little spice of the humbug but a great deal of it in the virtuous indignation of the planter against anti-Chinese legislation on the score of "injustice" to the Cliinaman. The history of the sugar inen as u class here at the islands demonstrates that they have cared nothing or precious little for the Chinaman except for what they could get out of him. Most of our citizens remember that when Messrs. J. O. Carter and H. M. Whitney took up the cry of injustice to the Chinaman in the P. U. A. in the reign of Kamehamcha V., it was the sugar crowd that positively "hound ed" Carter with abuse out of the Advertiser and did that which is criminal in a laboring man to do, namely, combined to boycott the paper in question until Mr. Whitney had positively to sell out. The harbor of Honolulu was then made use of as a wayport for ships loaded with coolies going from Ma cao to Peru. This traffic in human beings became historically "infam ous," and the British Government finally stopped it with a strong hand, but the name of J. O. Carter mean while had become quite as infam ous to the Queen street fraternity for the prominent part he took in stamping out the trade in question. The writs of habeas corpus sued out by him in our Courts tell the story of what was actually done, but no one not an actual observer can know how utterly alone he stood in the midst of overwhelming opposition and abuse from sugar men at that time. And lo,in these latter days.Queen street appears in the political arena, "his feet shod with the preparation of the gospel," the American flag tied around his loins, one hand transferred from his bread basket to his heart, the declaration of inde pendence in the other, a coolie labor contract and its benefits in his bieeches' pocket, and heavily be spangled all over with trite senti ments in behalf of justice, human ity, freedom and the like. No won- der people say, "What Jumbo is this?" No wonder that their surprise increases when it is discovered to be Queen street, in toggery to suit, out hunting eternal justice" for the Chinaman. A careful inspection, however, of the new political creed of these lat ter day saints will show, that their pursuit.of eternal justice is not in tended by them to interfere with a continuance of their pet system of dumping Asiatic male labor on a civilized community, nor does it necessitate immolating any of their own class upon the altars to secure justice to the Chinaman the poorer whites and kanakas are intended for alttir material. A la Abraham they jsay to a rather anxious and interest ed branch of the community, "The Lord will provide a sacrifice, my son." In fact the whole system presents to their eyes u vista of combined profit and moral exhilara tion to be obtained out of tho China man which would floor the reluc tance of almost any man. Meanwhile, as it dawns upon the people just how much actual justice is intended by the sugar party to civilization and humanity, their sen sations will probably he like those of the man who, stepping up to the village drunk to congratulate him upon donning the blue ribbon at last, is compelled by the combined odor of cloves and gin that greets him, to admit that the village has not lost its same old "six pence" yet. Queen street makes us "very tired." Altar Material.
