Hoffsclilaeger & Co OfFer For Sale Bars :ams m MONDAY April 2d QUARANTINE. It is to be hoped that the Board of Health will at once raise the quarantine farce that has been enacted here the past two months. It cannot be called anything else but a farce. If the quar antine had been strict no one would have had a nrord to say. But take, for for instance, the last steamer the Ala meda. Her passengers, according to the regulations, should have remained in quarantine for eighteen days from the time of leaving San Francisco. The steamer arrived here on March 17th and the passengers were released on the 23d, a period of only thirteen days. From latest advices from the Coast it is learned that the disease is almost entirely stamped out in San Francisco. As the Australia was to leave fourteen days after these advices, and should no new cases have developed, there will not be the slightest reason for continuing the quarantine which has been the laughing stock of the country. THE DANGERS OF ELECTRICITY. On Monday last we called attention t o the danger to be apprehended from the . use of the electric system of artificial lighting. Subsequent events have proved that our observations were not prema ture. It is understood that in the course of the past week at least two casualties have occurred through the powerful cur rent used for lighting purposes being diverted into the telephone wires. In one instance an instrument in the house of a subscribei was set on fire, and in another an operator received a severe shock, besides which it was deemed a necessary precaution to sever the con nections of several subscribers to avoid the ignition of their instruments. There is notinr unique in all this. With almost every great invention that has been introduced for the convenience of humanity new dangers have followed in its wake, but this is not necessarily an argument against its introduction. Be fore tne days of railroads there were no railroad accidents, but no one is on this account advocating the abolition of railroads. The same remark applies to numberless branches of industrial ma chinery and other tilings. The accidents arise either from carelessness of the men placed in charge or from an imper fect knowledge and an erroneous appli cation of the scientific principles which govern the machinery. Immunity from danger in the future is only to be se cured by careful examination of the causes of accidents in the past. In this city there are three different companies catering for the electrical wants of the community, and inasmuch as they are not accountable for their actions to any one head, the contingency is ever hang ing over us like the sword of Damocles that one of their number may independ ently take some action or other, inno cent enough of itself, but which in con junction with some other intrinsically " A I " f , t innocent acuon oi anotner company may cause serious disaster. It would thus appear that the contemporaneous use by two or more corporations of so dangerous an element as electricity, in the absence of some kind of general supervision, is mimical to the public safety. This seems to suggest the need of a Government inspector of electricity, who should be a man thoroughly versed in the practical application of that par ticular science, and whose duty it should be to see that all risks are avoided as far as it is possible. ana winy nome-inrusts. A JNorwegian gentleman would not give the Hawaiian king so much right to have a vetoas his Norwegian Majesty, because thg latter was a king by Divine right, while Kala kaiia was only elected. Refreshing to hear him talking about the Divine right of the house of Bernadotte. On the mo tion of Road Supervisor Armstrong, a committee of five was appointed to draw resolutions on all important questions before the country, and to present these resolutions at a meeting three weeks hence. It was promised that this meet ing should be properly advertised to give people a chance to attend, and if Mr. Baldwin and consorts really wish to get the opinion of their constituents, they had better cali the meeting in the even ing instead of in the afternoon, whereby they prevented the great majority, who are dependent upon their employers, to be present. It is noteworthy that of the five gentlemen appointed on the above mentioned committee three are Govern ment officials. The instructions to this class of men not to take any active part in politics, as under the former adminis trations, seem to be forgotten ; at least the game seems mostly in the hands of Road Supervisors, Deputy Sheriffs and Custom House officials.

Ladies' Box Sr the On March 10th, in San Francisco, Judge Hoffman rendered an important decision affecting the half-pilotage ques tion. The suit was entitled E. M. Fore man vs. The Steamer Australia, in which the plaintiff sought to recover $80. On March 21, 1887, Captain Houd lette, master of the Australia, was ap proached by the libelant at the Custom House, where the Captain was engaged in clearing his ship for a foreign voyage, and asked the latter if he wanted a pilot. The Captain replied : "I don't know ; come to the ship and I will tell you." For many years past a practice has prevailed in that port for pilots to inquire at the Custom House of masters of out going vessels whether they would have a pilot or not, such a method being very convenient. The Court in its decision stated : "To say that an inquiry at the Custom House, such as that made in this case, constitutes a 'speaking of the ship' with in the meaning of the statute would seem to be an abuse of the terms. The Master merely informed the pilot that he had not determined whether or not he would take a pilot; and, as he says, directed him to come to the ship for a final answer. It seems to me plain that to entitle the pilot lo the compensa tion allowed by law he should have brought himself within the terms of this statute by making a formal offer of his services when the ship was about to pro ceed to sea and by procuring from the Master a distinct refusal to accept them."

A political meeting of the voters for Nobles on the island of Maui took place at Kahului on the 29th instant. It was called on the instigation of Mr. H.'P. Baldwin as an attempt to get some voters to endorse his actions at the last session. Mr. Baldwin has found out since his return to Maui that his con stituents are far frota satisfied with cer tain laws and measures which he intro duced in the past session, and he wished to explain himself at a meeting. Some small notices in writing had been posted up, and of the 700 voters 35 appeared. The spokesman of these 35 citizens de clared repeatedly that they were the meeting of the constituents of Mr. Bald win and were going to pass reso lutions endorsing the views of said gentleman, but at last this idea was postponed. ' Mr. Baldwin, who was the principal speaker, rehashed all the old session talk, modifying his ideas to suit the dis satisfied voters. He promised that he would make no more attempts to close the saloons, and would advise his friends in the House to drop that" measure for ine lilllti ueiiJg. xic uiu uuo ut.; vm- nese.
