TILE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL, ADVERTISES : HONOLULU, OCTOBER 18, 1895.

IT 13 A QUESTION OP STATE.
Mr. Reynolds Calls for Exhibition of
Common Sense.
It would appear that the clear
and plainly expressed opinion of
your contributor a few days ago
baa raided a storm of comment
rimply because he, a decided roy
alist, ehould venture to criticise but
to endorse over his own signature
the action of the Iioard of Health,
but at the same time presume to
question the action of the presi
dent of that Board. S trange to say
he, the president, does not look on
me as an enemy, but like a man
accepts my criticism.
Now, about the carpers who cry
down the action of the Board in
falling in with my idea as to the
straightening of Xuuanu stream
from King street bridge to the wall
opposite Pauoa stream iifrar Mc
Gregor's place. My advocacy of
this plan came from DO considera
tions of property at stake in indi
vidual inula noun, but simply as a
piestion of State, which I claim to
be paramount to all other interest?.
Axes to grind, with me don't
count !
There are at least twenty men
employed making the back wall
the Government has seen fit to pro
pose and not one protests against
the dirty job, therefore why all this
opposition to the Government plans
being carried out'.'
Let reasonable men look at rea
sonable things in a reasonable
light. The question is one of tax
payers, and I pay a good deal more
year in and year out than those
who for the sake of newspaper
notoriety raise captious objection
Tor what is for the good of the
.State.
Some have raised the serious
question that the railroad wharf
has been a menace to the general
course of the stream and has thus
raised all our present troubles I
Veil, admitted the fact, did it ever
occur to these questionists that the
Hawaiian Government of that day
deliberately consented to the fact,
and that by consent of the Legisla
ture. Some raise the question that this
is an old plan now being acted
upon. Well, bless me, can't the
devil once in a while set a good
example?
The franchise or lea.se to the
railroad does not now figure in the
question, because terms once made
must be abided by, and the only
question now to be considered is
the one recommended by the
Board of Health to the Govern
ment. A good deal of fear for their own,
or somebody else's health, seems to
cut a figure just now, for fear some
one should start up the cholera
scare again because of the mud dug
up and deposited on Leleo flats.
The best answer to that is for the
objection ists to pass those same
flats under present circumstances
at any half-moon or full-moon
tide ! I don't know, but I think
they would hail anything that
would be an attempt at an im
provement. More could be said, but I think
I have covered all the points
raised. W. F. Reynoi is.
South Sea Mimaionary Work.
Father Bontempe, superior of the
Sacred Heart, left Sydney for the
Gilbert Islands with nineteen mis
sionaries, July 2'Jd. He took with
him 4000 copies of the Gospel of
Matthew with illustrations and an
notations, 3000 copies of a book of
Bible stories with 100 illustra
tiens, 3000 catechisms and hymn
books, 1000 dictionaries and gram
mars of the Gilbert Islands lan
guage. It should be noted that
the whole Bible has been trans
lated by Rev. Dr. Bingham and
thousands of copies put in circula
tion. Primers, arithmetics, geo
graphies and Bible stories have
been in use for many years. Mrs.
Bingham has now ready a book of
devotional meditations for every
day of the month which the Ha
waiian Gazette Company will soon
print for the Hawaiian Board to
send down by the next voyage of
the Morning Star.
The Advertiser and the Reader.
Now that advertising has reached a
point of commercial honor the adver
tiser is as important to the reader as
the reader is to the advertiser. The
latter spends hundreds of millions of
dollars annually to tell the reader
the wide awake reader just what he
wants to know what be should know.
It is very kind of him to do this gen
erous, philanthropic. He is a public
benefactor. We say it seriously. It
i9 through him that the reader keeps
in touch with progress, with the trend
of prices, with inventions and im
provements, and these mean some
thing to the man who would spend
his money wisely mean something
to the womau who would not be de
ceived in what she buys, and swin
dled in the price she pays. Ex.
PEAT OP A BLOOMER GIRL.
' Miss Annie Londonderry's Toar of
the World.
B'.-ton, Mas-.. .Sept. '". Miss
Annie Londonderry arrived in this
city yesterday morning after a trip
around the world n a bicycle.
Miss Londonderry is nursing a
broken arm, the result of a bad
fall sustained in one of the West
ern towns.
On June 26, 18iJ4, Miss London
derry started on her trip around
the world. .She was given a goed
eend-ofT by several hundred friends.
J who were at the State House when
! the start was made. Her trip, she
says, was made upon a wager. She
was to receive $10,000 if she fin
ished the journey in fifteen months,
and she leels proud of the record
she has made. On Thursday,
September 12th, the journey came
to an end in Chicago, fourteen
days ahead of the time allowed.
In addition to the puree of $10,
00U, which she says was handed
over to her by the parties making
the wager. Miss Londonderry also
accumulated $5000 from lectures
given in several countries and also
by participating in exhibitions of
bicycle riding.
Her experience in riding a bicy
cle was very limited, having taken
her first lesson on the day ene was
to begin her long journey. She
soon mastered the wheel, however,
and after a few days' riding had
very little trouble in getting over
the roads. During all of her long
trip Mi3 Londonderry says she
met with a royal reception, particu
larly in Paris, where she was given
a grand reception and aleo made
considerable money by ' lecturing.

The Beauty
OF SOME PIAPI0S
Is only "case deep." It is much
easier to m;ike a handsome case than
it is to put music into it. A tolerable
mechanic can do the one the other
requires the best thought of a musical
artist. The
All have handsome, tasteful, durable
cases, but in their factory constant,
careful, studious attention is jriven to
the production of a perfect and lasting
tone. Tlie beauty and honesty of a
Kroeger begins with the varnish oq
the case and goes straight through to
the iron plate that holds the strings.
We'd like to show you the inside of a
Kroeger.
