Bv older of the Boaid of Educa tion". W. J AS. SMITH, Secretary. Education Oflioe, Feb. 24, 1890. 6(H) 2t-i:tl 2t a 1 1 la gaitu iuTTitfin Pledged to neither Seel nor Party, But established for the benefit of all. WEDNESDAY, MAR. 12, 18S0. Whoever instigated Hawaiian ex flii.sinit in Samoa, the pretext in all piohahility was precaution against leprosy. If King Malictoa was led to believe that there was danger of the scourge from this quarter, surely nobody here can find any fault with him for his action. As a matter of fact there is something like n panic about leprosy in Samoa, caused by the development of one fatal case and others reported. SHAMEFUL NEGLECT. One of the. good results of the fire of April, 188G, which destroyed the gruntcr part of Chinatown, was the opening of new streets, and the wid ening and extension of old ones. The Government of the day em braced the opportunity presented, and prohibited the erection of build ings in the devastated district until llie new lines of streets had been marked. Bethel, Niiuanu, King, Mtuinakea, Smith, and Hotel streets were widened, and the latter two ex tended. A new street was opened parallel with ilaunakca street, and about midway between it and the King street bridge. Another new .street was opened from Smith street to the Nuuanu stream, at right angles with Beretania street. It has been recently extended at the cast end, to connect with Nuuanu street, and Smith slieet has been widened at its upper end, near its junction wilh Beretania street. All these widnnings, extensions, and new streets arc admitted to have been needed, and therefore the cost of the ncccssarj' land, etc., a proper expenditure. Not only was-publie convenience to be served thereby, but the public heallh was still more deeply concerned. That portion of the town, for the most part, was densely populated, and the open ings were too few and narrow for a sulllcient circulation of air to main tain u healthful condition. More lungs were needed, and the Govern ment acted properly in providing them ; but the Government has neg lected to jiut them into n proper breathing condition and herein has failed of its duty. Bethel, King, and Nuuanu streets, and a portion of Hotel street have had some attention ; but all the other9 remain as they were. Old streets that have been widened still hIiow the embankments towards the outer sides, where the old lines of building existed ; and the new streets are full of pits and banks, dangeious to travel. There is no drainage, and it is next to impossi ble to maintain cleanliness in some places. The water stands in pools, and the masses of putrifying gar bage emit pestilential malaria. That poitiou of street recently opened, between Nuuanu and Smith streets, is a quagmire and rubbish hole. Talk of such places as conveniences for travel and business, and auxili aries to health ! They are positively traps of danger and nurseries of disease disease, the germs of which may be scattered from there to all parts of the town. Honolulu is bet ter without such lungs as belch forth nothing but noxious odors, tho seeds of death. The part of the town of which wo arc speaking is a glaring shame, a visible disgiace to the department of government charged with the care of public thoroughfares. Not a sin gle stroke, except the pulling down of shanties, has been done on thoso streets by the present Administra tion during its nearly three years of olllce. The land owners and dwellers in that neglected region have paid llieir taxes year after year, and ,i .,,.17". ,t ii . . ,i A. . , 'i ,v, t,j, ii h. .id . .... - - ..... u,.i , ,j' i .' ; , .. r .Vi,.,.';',ls',i?N,S5itai.ik" ,',-n- , , '. ,' .'..i.'i'.. .

What have they done that they should be ho signally slighted? They are blamed for the lllthy state of their streets, a state which they cannot help. How can thorough fans wilh such uneven sin faces, and not llie faintest, apology for drainage, be otherwise? It may not have been within the means of the Government to have thoroughly made and macadamized all the streets named. Nor was this expected. But what the Un.t.urix suggested years ago could have been done then, as a beginning, and can be done now, at trilling cost. It is this: Giade; fill up the pits with the banks; loimd up llie centre with earlli fiom the outer sides, thus creating drainage fiom the centre and opening channels for the escape of water ; pack with the steam roller. This would make good fair-weather roads, and obviate the principal dis abilities that now cxi3t. Macadam izing could follow at a more conven ient'scason. KING MALIETOA. Konon Bui.i.KTis: The acidity resulting from llie reactionary bile of the recent ill-digested defeat of the party, whom the young "scrub" of the P. C. Advertiser could not pull through is seen once in a while. I am sorry that the life of one so young should he nipped in the bud, as it were, by such a "nightmare reminiscence" as a defeat after such heroic efforts on the part of said "scrub." I would suggest that the young "scrub" put himself "under heavy bonds" to give his mud-thrower a rest ; as, at the rate he has been scavengering, ho will bury his poor defunct party clean out of sight. .1. K. Bi sn. JUSTICE. Editou Bn.i.nix: Though only a recent arrival I cannot refrain from penning a few lines to you on the above subject. In a recent is sue I notice the opinion of your po lice magistrate re the enormity of the offense of drunkenness compar ed to that of assault and battery. A "drunk" is lined S1 (this appears to be the usual line) and another man for assaulting his wife only pays $.'! and 2 costs or S in all. In my country (Australia), a "drunk" is fined probably .Is. (or $1.2f) for the first offense, while those con cerned in assault arc seldom allowed the option of a fine, but are sen tenced to terms of imprisonment from one month to five years or more, according lo the enormity of the ofi'cnsc. A "drunkard" is not always a criminal, but a man cap able of committing assault and bat tery (especially on a female) is, L think, more entitled to the epithet, and should be dealt with accord ingly. Visitoii. LET THE DEAD DOG LIE. Eon on Hri.i.r.ris : In this morn ing's Advertiser X X utters another wail over the lost cause. There is so much of clerical cant about it that a fellow is almost impelled to throw llible at him and say, "Verily, thou hast been weighed," etc. Something always reminds the pious maw worm of a "story," and this one is by X X : "It has been said that in the early days of the mission in those Islands, a Chinaman who had picked up a little English in the course of his migrations, called upon a missionary who asked him if he had ever heard of God and his claims on mankind. 'Oh, yes,' lie replied, 'worship God, worship devil, alloc same.' " If ever a Chinaman was in II113 yarn, it would prove him to have been a keen observer: that is, pro vided that the elect of the "early days of the mission" were anything like some of them arc in these latter days. Paul, the great apostle, once wiotc of a certain set. of professed believers and said, "their god is their belly." Possibly this was an exaggerated expression; and the Chinaman, who was probably ignor ant of tho Westminster Confession or even the Shorter Catechism, might have intended to convey his impres sion of the relative moral value in practice of the gods of China and ISostoii. "Audio! Like a lot of unreason ing sheep, the Hawaiian again turns to and elects the teacher of perjury and some of the very men whose corruption led lo the Reform move ment which they so substantially endorsed but two years previously." Rather over two years, bi other! long enough as a political courtship to sec if we could "hitch." "And lo," wc did ascend by the Boule vard Thurston lo the top of Mount Punchbowl and whitcman and ka naka did look down and behold do ings not expected at the period of conjunction in 1887. And lo! some of the Reform family have built them a new house. And lo! what are you going to do about it? And lo! why art thou troubled, XX? Hast thou not read the Friend, and found thyself in a majority? Or lo! art thou convinced that thy Friend hast lied unto thee? Oh, lie upon the thought! Here comes the cloven fool : "Should people of so little ability to discriminate between good and evil, bo trusted with llie franchise?" ,uBtyou try it. And lo! thou shall sec what thou slialt see. 'Cjy.s. THE KAUHI MATTER. A complaint was filed by Muhoo (w.) and C. B. Kiuiakanul, her hus band, vs. Anakalea Kaulil and Ke uhi in the Supreme Court, October 111, 18811. The complaint recites that Mahoc and her bi other Keahi are entitled to undivided interest in apoitionof Land Commission No. !i:i27, Hoyal 1'alcnt No. 171. A dispute had long existed between them and L. Kaiua concerning the validity ol a deed made by the an cestor of Mahoc and Keahi to Kaina, the brothcr'and sister alleging the conveyance to be fraudulent and void, and Kaina contending for its genuineness. Katihi was retained by Mahoc and Keahi to effect a compromise with Kaiua and to obtain a release of his claim to the propeity.. The com plaint recites lliat defendant while acting in the capacity of attorney subsequently acquired possession of the land for a mentioned considera tion of S220. The complainants aver that the amount paid could not have exceeded SI (10. Kaulii has since steadily refused to transfer the property lo his client although tend ered the full amount of S220. But not only did Kaulii get possession of tiic coveted premises but he seems to have got hold of Keahi, who is accordingly made a party to this suit. The prayer urges the propiicty of (hanging the role of Kaulii fiom one of ownership to one of trusteeship in trust for benefit of Keahi and Mahoc. On the 10th of December, 1.X81), Justice Preston filed his de cree ordering the defendant Kaulii within ten days lo convey the pro perly lo plaintiffs on the payment of S'20, it appearing th:t Keahi dis claimed any interest therein. The decree was appealed from to the Supreme Court in banco mid con firmed Feb. 10, 18JI0. Feb, 28, 1800, Mr. Kaulii came befoie the Court on a charge of contempt in refusing to execute the instrument of conveyance. After various de lays Mr. Kaulii was ordered to take up his residence in Oaliu Jail till such time as he evinced a willing ness to comply with the terms of the decree requiring him to convey his title in disputed land to plaintiffs. FOREIGN ITEMS. Great mortality is reported in the Soudan. Brigands arc increasing in nuiii bcis aiouiuT Puerto Principe. Emin Pasha will lead a German expedition to reconquer Wadelai. The King of Dahomey's forces have been routed by tho French. The Batabaro Railway Station in Cuba was blown up with dynamite and many people injured. It is aiaiii said that Dr. Peters and his parly have been massacred. The man seen by French mission aries was Bocherl, Peters' lieuten ant, who was mistaken for Peters. Boclicrt first reported the massacre of the Peters parly. he Gaulois of Paris publishes a despatch from a correspondent who accompanied the Panama Commis sion, lie says the experts liave de cided it is possible to construct the canal only with locks. Some engin eers favor a plan of operations em bodying two locks, which might pos sibly be completed in four years at a cost of '8.000,000. lie also states that seven-tenths of the work remains to be done, and that, the canal is beginning to (III with sand. Ho thinks the commission will more likely advise the company that from six to eight locks will be necessary. The commission reached New Yoik on their way home Feb. IS but de clined to say anything. In the Canadian House ot Coin. 1110113 an amendment to kill the bill abolishing the French as one of tho olllcial languages in the Northwest was lost, Oil to 187, four English members voting for the amendment. Tho French are greatly excited over the debate and talk of disruption of Confederation and annexation. Sir John Macdonald threatens to dis solve Parliament and appeal to the country on the question, as he is between the two fires of Ontario Oraiigcism and Quebec Ultiamon tanism. . The Mexican-Guatemalan ques tion is very unsettled. The aggres sive policy1 of Mexico is fast ap proaching' a climax. Mexican troops arc being massed on the Guatemalan frontier. The commission appointed to in vestigate the condition of the army and navy recommends revolutioniz ing the army and indirectly con demns the Duke of Cambridge for incompeteticy. AVANTGO As;.
