Honolulu, April 6, 1895. J
Mb. Editor : In the absence of the
Marshal and in view of the statements
which have been made in regard to
the treatment of prisoners, and espe
cially of the late Arthur P. Peterson,
I deem it my duty to make a brief
The facts are briefly these: That
during the period when Mr. Peter3on
was confined thre were a very large
number of prisoners to be cared for,
part of the time the number being
more than 400. There were not suf
ficient accommodations at the prison
and station house to comfortably ac
commodate them all, and so the Bar
racks was utilized, as also the Police
Court room. In every case effort was
made to make the prisoners as com
fortable as possible. None were placed
in damp ceils, for there are no such
cells used for the confinement of pris
oners. Of course some cells were
better lighted than others.
In Mr. Peterson's case, while he was
at the prison he occupied a dry, well
lighted and ventilated cell. While at
the station house he was for a short
time placed in one of the inner cells,
which are not so well lighted as the
others; but as soon as one of the bet
ter lighted cells was vacant he was
moved to it. The statement that the
cell in the station house in which Mr.
Peterson passed the time during his
confinement was one of the poorest is
not correct ; and the statement that it
was one in which former officials had
been accustomed to put the low
drunks brought in from the streets is
calculated to give a wrong impression.
All the cells at the station house are
used to put prisoners in who have
been arrested; but the one most fre
quently used is one of the best aud
lightest of them all, and is so used be
cause of its convenience of access.
Mr. Peterson was confined at the
Station House but a short time. He
was arrested January 7th and taken to
the prison the same day. February
7th he was returned to the Station
House, where he remained till Febru
ary 16tb, when he was released. He
was in the Station House but eight
days. He received every care that
could be afforded under the circum
stances. Food was supplied of a good
quality and ample quantity from a
That Mr. Peterson's health suffered
must have been from conditions exist
ing before his confinement, for his
companions, who received the same
treatment that he did, improved in
health, and, upon their release, spoke
in terms of commendation of the treat
ment they had received.

DR. ABBOTT'S VIEWS.
Widely Different From Those of
Mr. Editor : Rev. Lyman Ab
bott, D. D., is the pastor of the
Plymouth church, Brooklyn, and
presided at the prayer meeting at
which T. G. Shearman made the
speech recently published by you.
The following extract from an ad
dress delivered by Dr. Abbott at
General Armstrong's Institute at
Hampton, Va., on the 30th of Jan
uary last, "Founder's Day," shows
that the doctor does not sympa
thize with his parishioner, Shear
man, as to the character of one of
the "missionaries' sons."

Pre-eminently the men of vision are
the philosophers, the poets, the
preachers of the world.
Over against the men of vision we
have the men of action; those who
take the visions others have interpre
ted, and aid it to embodiment in vis
ible institutions. Occasionaly, very
occasionally, we find a man in whom
these elements gradually meet. We
all have something of both elements,
but almost all have only one or the
other in characteristic or eminent
Above all other men I ever knew;
General Armstrong ha 1 both; he was
both the man of vision and the man
of action. Above all men that I ever
knew, he had both the strange mys
terious power of perceiving the in
visible, eternal world, the power of
sketching, laying out the divine ideal,
the divine plan, and with it the pati
ence and the power and the heroism
to carry that divine ideal out into
Moses goes up into the mount and
gets the pattern of the tabernacle. If
he had staid up there there would
have been no tabernacle. Aaron
stays down on the plain and makes a
golden calf. He who stays on the
plain does nothing. He who stays
always in the mount does nothing.
What made General Armstrong
great among great men was, that hav
ing seen the visiou,.he had the pati
ence, the enthusiasm and the power
to work it into realization.
