Be just and fear not: Let all the ends thou aim'st at be Thy Country's, thy God's, ami Truth's. SATURDAY, : NOVEMBER 3, 18SS. The person who posed in the Bulletin last evening as an "Observer" described the writers for the Advertiser as "sal aried government officials who should have been kicked out long ago for incom petency, and would have been hut for the fact of being part' heelers and in need of the salary," and then proceeds to accuse this paper of descending to what it calls "personal journalism." Beautiful and characteristic consistency. The gentleman's fairness equals his cour tesy, and both are unique. Says this many-named letter writer : " If we were to rake up the history of these gentlemen of the present missionary party, we doubt if a lower state of blackguardism 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" . The man who boasts of the terrible things which he might or could do, but , is presumably a coward. It would afford the Advertiser great satisfaction to have these names, facts and figures produced and made public with as little delay as possible. kind and amount of religious instruction would be a valuable element in any edu cational system. But admitting this, we are met at once by the apparently insolu ble question, What shall the nature and scope of that instruction be? Were the community composed entirely of persons of one way of thiaking in religious mat ters, the solution of the problem would j easy. Were we all Catholics, or Methodists, or Jews, we could, through the regular methods of political action, decree that our religious doctrines should be part of the regular school curriculum, and the thing would be done. But we are not all adherents of any one church or creed, and consequently we cannot agree as to what shall be taught. Under these circumstances it seems altogether the wisest and safest course to limit the function of state schools to the imparting of secular knowledge, and relegate the inculcating of religion to the parents and guardians of the children, and the religi ous teachers of the different denomina tions. We think experience has shown that where this plan is pursued, and the various relitrious bodies are put, so to t speak, on their mettle, the practical re sult has been that the children have re ceived, upon the whole, more and better religious teaching than could be secured under anv state svstein whatever. All that seems practicable under the circum stances is to require that the teachers shall be not only competent instructors, but persons of good moral character, whose personal influence and example CORRESPONDENCE.

Mr. Editor : The question of the so called konohiki fisheries is as near peren nial as anything Hawaiian can well be. Always presenting itself and always de feated, it always returns just as if nc thing had happened. Knocked out at every session of the Legislature since any one can remember, it comes up again fresh and smiling, indifferent to legal and constitutional technicalities, impervious to ridicule, and serenely con fident, apparently, of ultimate success. It would seem as if the remarkable vital ity exhibited by this question was at least strong presumptive evidence of its possessing some merits. Its wonderful staying powers indicate that there is something in it which the people really care about, and which they will not easily give up. Questions of this kind are always de serving the serious and respectful con sideration of Ministers and legislators. It seems a pity that our legislators could not have found time and inclination to irive this matter a fuller consideration at their last session. It must be admitted, however, that they accorded it more re- spectiul treatment than some of their pre decessors. It was ordered that the whole subject in its various bearings be investi gated, and reported upon at the next ses sion. It is to be honed that the investi gation wiH be thorough, and that any re Dort which mav be made will contain recommenda- 3 Syr vi ittvitPV' c flip Annual Meeting Waihee Sugar Co.

For quick raising, the Royal Baking Powder is superior to all other leavening agents. It is ab solutely pure and wholesome and of the highest leav?ning power. It is always uniform in strength and quality and never fails to make light, sweet, most palatable and nutritive food. Bread, biscuits, nmffins, cake, etc., raised with Royal Baking Powder may be eaten hot without distressing results to the most delicate digestive organs. It will keep in any climate without deterioration. Prof. H. A. Mott, U. S. Government Chemist, after examining officially the principal baking powders of the couutry, reported: The Roval Baking Powder is absolutely pure, for I haveRofonnd it in many tests made both for that company and the United States Govern ment. "Because of the facilities that company have for obtaining perfectly pure cream of tartar, and for other reasons dependent upon the proper proportions of the same, and the method of its preparation, the Royal Baking Powder is un doubtedly the purest and most reliable baking powder offered to the public.

Nevertheless, whether Catholic or Protestant, broad or narrow, high or low. we want, so far as our Gov ernment schools are concerned, no en tangling alliances with any of them in their official capacity.

Bishop, Secretary, and fifty other ladies were present. The auxiliary societies Gleaner and Helping Hand were reported as having held interesting meetings during the month. The Hawaiian work had been well car ried on by native lady Bible readers.

The present system and the privileges en joyed under it are a relic of feudal barbar ism, whose survival to the present day is a reproach to Hawaiian statesmanship It is contrary to the spirit of the age, and ought to be got rid of, not violently of course, but legalJj' and constitutionally. Monopolies diehard, particularly when j i i i. tnev are entrenched behind what are called vested rights, which in many cases is only another name for vested wrongs. Our fishing monopolies are no exception to the rule. The legal ques tion, in its strictly technical aspects, cannot be here discussed. The right of the matter seems perfectly clear. It maybe true, as was asserted, in sub stance, by the Minister of the Interior, Davis, Miss My ra that the Supreme Court will knock the iJorell, lhos bottom out of any law which may be passed, abrogating or abridging these exclusive privileges. Of course nc definite action can be taken until the next session of the Legis lature. In the meantime, it is to be hoped that the gentlemen to whose con sideration the question was committed will study the matter carefully. Not, as has been too' often the case in dealing with proposed reforms in the past, to find an excuse for doing nothing, but with-a sincere purpose to reach some practical solution. To leave it in its present shape, to lie back and say non possimus, aole hiki, not hing can bt; done, is the part of neither courage nor states manship. For my own part, I am fully convinced that should the legal and con stitutional obstacles in the way of any other settlement be found insurmount able, it would be well for the Govern ment to consider some plan for assuming the control of these fishing privileges, upon the basis of compensating the pre sent holders for whatever legal rights they may be found to possess.
