sinners; but sain ta and sinners stood
side by side, determined and united
in one thing, however much they
might differ elsewhere. They fought
with a will for the preservation of the
dear old Union, and today it stands a
grand monument to those who lived

SOME OF ULOUNT'S MISTAKES.
I have only seen a resume of Mr.
lilount's report, so can hardly julge
fairly of its contents, but the fact that
Mr. Gresham's letter is based upon
this report jus lilies the belief, per
haps, that the resume gives the sub
stance very well. Mr. Blount speaks
of Mr. Thurston's part in the revolu
tion of '87 as if it were something to
be ashamed of. I do not rise to Mr.
Thurston's defense he Ia quite capa
ble of lighting his own battles: but
Mr. Blount goes on to Imply that be
cause the Constitution of 1SS7 was
forced upon Kalakaua his sister was
justified in trying to overthrow it in
In 1214, if my memory serves ine
right, the barons of England con
fronted King John with arms and
forced him to sign the Magna Charta.
The ink was hardly dry on this fam
ous document when the king began
his efforts to circumvent it. and the
rest of his wicked life was devoted to
these efforts. Now does any one sup
pose that the English people would
admit King John's well-known un
willingness on this occasion as a valid
excuse for any of his successors who
might take a notion to set aside the
principles involved in this "charter
of English liberties?" I fancy if any
one tried it the roar of the British
lion would be heard the world around.
If it not the right of the governed
to demand that the government they
support be justly, wisely, and hou
estly administered? Surely no Amer
ican will answer this question in the
Another point in Mr. Blount's re
port will show that be sometimes
confused his authorities. He cites
Mr. J. O. Carter as "one of the promi
nent men engaged in the revolution
ary movement," and quotes Mr. Car
ter's statement in th9 support of the
theory he labored so assiduously to
prove, that the monarchy was over
thrown by the United States forces.
Mr. Carter, I presume. Is justly of-
fended, for he is one of the few reput-
able Americans known to be royal
ists. Mr. T. H. Davies has written so
much, and said so much, both in
America and Hawaii, that one may
be pardoned for mentioning him in
this connection. He is a man whose
private character Is above reproach,
and in saying this I am just as sin
cere as he himself is when he speaks
of the men at the head of the i'rov
lnn.il nnvemment nq lit. hnnnrahlo
men." It is certainly nothing against
his character, as above cited, to say
that he is an
MB. DAVIES ATTITUDE. (i
It is well known In Honolulu that
in all efforts to secure pood govern
ment in past years Mr. Davies has re
mained quite passive, devoting him
self assiduously to business, but it is
also equally well-known that in every
instance where closer relations with
the United States were sought,
be there relations political. or com
mercial, Mr. Davies has come to the
fore as a staunch opponent. He bit
terly opposed the treaty of recipro
city, but since be failed to defeat it
thefe is no record of his ever showing
any icruples ojer profits arising
therefrom. He is now a man of
wealth, with a home in England,
where he may live, if he so elect.
The moral atmosphere of Honolulu
and the corruptions in government,
though he may deplore them as he
would deplore sin anywhere, do not
seriously concern him, for, unlike
the most of us, he does not have
to live and bring his children
up in its midst. When the cession of
Pearl Harbor was on the tapis, Mr.
Davies was also on the tapis. I was
told that he remarked to a gentlemnn
on the steamer that he had come all
the way from Knglaud to kill the
measure. And he did use all the in
. fluence he could bring to bear honora
bly to that end. Of course no one
questions his right to his opinions,
but these Instances go to show his
jealousy of the increase of American
influence in Hawaii. Just here it may
bo well to speak of Ivaiulaui. For
several years she has been in England,
carefully guarded from evil influences.
She has grown into a winsome young
womanhood, cultured, refined, Chris
tian. But bring her buck to Honolulu
and the surroundings that await her
here, and, if the refinement is radical,
she will buffer; if it is superficial, and
dependent on associations, she will
become a bitter disappointment to
those who love her best.
FOR TIIE GOOD OF TIIE PRINCESS.
It would be a cruel thing to take her
; from the safe shelter of England and
" place her in the midst of the tempta
- tious that would be thrown about her
! here, in spite of Mr. Davies. Bring her
'; here and let her attendants crawl and
cringe before her, and ply her with
j" fulsome flattery, and wiser and strong-
er characters than hers would snap
unuer tne strain.
' It is a noteworthy fact that the most
stalwart Christians among the Ha
waiian pastors, the men who have
braved all sorts of in-ults, are solid in
favor of the new order of things. For
; this they have been stigmatized as
i traitors, or deficient in patriotism. I

ply the answer.
a AtyLahaina, on the island of Maui,
Jthertf lives a pastor, Pali by name.
) Of all th9 Hawaiian pastors there is
j noue more sincerely devout than he.
His piety is so simple and so literal
'that he actually believes in the truth
61 the national motto, 'Ua mau ka ea
)o ka alna i ka pouo.M "(The life or the
land is established in righteousuess.")
It would be impossible to convince
him that this could be made to mean
anything else than is here aid, to he
reasons: "If this Is true, and it must
be, for it is so written, then the con-
' verso must also be true, the death of
the land must bo the inevitable result
If wickedness. To the law and to the
testim ny." It is written in the Book,
Righteousness exalteth a nation, but
lin Is a rep -oach to auy people." This
is plainer S3ripture than tiie doctrine

Rev. Mr. Pali stands on this platform.
SMOOTfl WILLIAM WHITE.
Now there also lives at Lahaina one
William White, a low ha f-white,
known in the lait Legislature as "Oily
Bill." This man was the tool of the
lottery company, ami fathered that
celebrated bill through the House. In
home way best known to men of his
ilk, he obtains an evil influence over
the simple people of the parish, and
they loi-k the church against the pas
tor. Who are the patriot? The men
like Mr. Pali, who, seeing the nation
go from bad to worse year after year,
can see no relief from the degradation
and death that stare them in tiie face,
that seems to them so complete as the
proposition of annexation to the laud
from wnence came their civilization
and Christianity, or the queen and
the unprincipled scoundrel who, for a
money consideration, would sell the
whole nation to a lottery gaug? Is
this question too hard to answer?
Itev. Mr. Pali is not the only one;
there are others who are made, like
him, to stiller for righteousness' sake,
but this genuine instance will do for
Mr. Nordhoff and others have
spoken of the descendants ol the mis
sionaries as if they were degenerate
sons of their fathers. In the March
number of the Review of Reviews is
an article entitled " England in
Egypt," which reviews Mr. Miiner's
book on the subject. I quote a few
"In describing how it was that the
English came into Egypt, Mr. Milner
expresses his conviction very em
phatically as to its necessity. The
emergency was the imminent return
of the reign of barbarism. Had
England not intervened, everything
that was good in Egypt would have
PKOMPT ACTION NECESSARY.
It was just this condition of affairs
that aroused this community last
January, and prompt action was
taken to prevent the smashing of
"everything good" in Hawaii. Had
the descendants of the missionaries
stood aloof tbey would have been
truly "degenerate sons of their
fathers." They are thoroughly con
scientious in their action; it is for
"God and home and native laud" that
they stand as they do. No man has

more entirely at heart than they.

John A. Scott, Manager of

the Hilo Sugar Co., regarding
the working of the National
Cane Shredder, which he has
just introduced into the Mill

January 2d, 1894.)
Hon. Wm. G. Irwin, Honolulu, H. I.
Dear Sir: In reply to yours of the
16th inst. regarding tne National Cane
bhredder furnished by the Universal
Mill Co. of New York, and erected by
the Hilo Sugar Co. this past season,
I would beg to say, that it has now been
in operation day and night during the pat
three weeks working on plant cane, and
also hard ratoons,and it is giving me the
greatest satisfaction. The more I see of
its capabilities, the better pleased 1 am
i bat I put it in, as I am satisfied that it
will repay the original outlay in a short
time, in saving of labor, higher extrac
It is shredding from S50 to 400 tons ol
cane every 22 hours with the greatest
eaje, and it could t-hred a znucii larger
quantity if nec.esia.ry. Is delivers the
shredded cane in an even uniform feed
to the three roller mill, which receives it
without the intervention cf any labor,
and as the cane is thoroughly shredded
or disintegrated it relieves the mill of a
jireat deal of strain, thus reducing the
liability of broken shafts, gearing, etc.
There is a saving of four (4) men daily
on the mill, as only one man is required
to regulate the amount of cane delivered
by the carrier to the shrediier. It has
increased the extraction from 4 to
5 per cent.
The economical use of steam is gene
rally a serious consideration 'in adding
new machinery, as in most mills the
boiler power is taxed to its highest limit,
a3 it was in this mill, and any increased
demand necessitated an additional boil
er, liut I nna tnat tho 6nreauer and tne
three roll mill engines combined nse no
more steam than the three roll mill
engine did when working on whole cane,
while doing better work and more of it,
ani owing to the uniform feed on the
mill, the engine demands very little
The egass from the shredded cane
makes superior ful, and the firemen
have le.'S ditBciUx in iijaiii'aining a uni
form pressure of steam than formerly.
I will be pleased to i-ave a call from
parties interested, as it is necessary to
see the machine at work to lully appre
ciate its capabilities.
I remain, very rruly yours,
