Posterity will inherit oJTr times and
will hold us responsible for the history
of the present. That fur children may
respect our memories, it is fitting we
honor our age by dedicating our lives
to the sacred majesty of Truth. In ad
vancing the intercbts of civilization we
necessarily proclaim for justice and
right, liberty and morality. In advancing
the best interests of Hawaii nei
that she may keep pace with the march
of nations, the Daily Honolulu
Pri:ss will endeavor to express, in an
independent and logical manner, liberal
views on government, society, and Hawaiian
affairs generally. We shall advocate
reform in politics and Government
and shall always hold our columns
open to the interests of public morality.
As reform supposes defect we shall endeavor
to point out an evil before we
demand its cure and suggest a remedy,
It will be our constant aim to fairly
represent public opinion, and wc shall
always give the views of those who
differ with us a full and fair statement,
but shall insist upon holding their
vates responsible for all the logical
conclusions of such positions, and we
shall expect to be so held responsible
. by others. No fact will be suppressed,
no argument will be avoided let the
results be what they may. Arguments
on bovh sides of all public questions
will be freely admitted into our
columns. We will Have nothing to do
with private broils. Personalities will
. be excluded except in cases where the
personal acts of public, men or private
individuals dernnnd censure for the public
good. We shall neither uphold nor
condemn .a Ministry in power because
'its members belong to this party or
Oto that but shall make their official
actions objective. We shall, however,
reserve the right tar test, at any 'time,
the fitness for office of any member or
, members of an existing Ministry.
Owing to the uncertainty of human
affairs it would be impolitic to attempt
a specific outline of policy for an inde
pendent journal.' Suffice it to say that
our course will be'guided at all times
toward the establishment and continu
ance of good Government, for the up
building of social and educational in
stitutions, for the establishment and
protection of home-industries and the
fostering of planters' interests, for the
purification of public morals and for
the gerieral prosperity and welfare of
Those who follow our course, give us
their support and sympathy, and aid us
with pen or patronage will be able to
judge if we deserve a continuence of
their friendship as the details of our
policy shall be developed.

Is there any particular reason why
the Fire Dcpartment'tompanies throw
water underMhe doors and through the
fittinga of window sashes, when they
practice in our narrow streets. . J
Many maintain that the day of
weekly-newspapers is past ill Honolulu;
that the people want their- hews and
food for thought fresh with their coffee
every day; and that the people are willing
to pay for what they want. At the
very nominal figure established as the
subscription price of Honolulu Dailies,
fifty cents a month, it must be borne in
mind that six or seven hundred, or
even a thousand subscribers is but a
mere bagatelle toward the expense of
conducting a newspaper. Our advertising
rates arc not such as would
satisfy our Pacific Coast contemporaries,
or in fact any but those who labor
for the love of it rather than for profit.
This paper will not be run for glory,
but will conducted on a sound financial
basis and value received will be
given to its patrons in every case.
We believe that the independant elements
in the community will appreciate
and properly support a daily morning
paper that is outspoken und independent
in its utterances.
The- Daily Honolulu Press will
be published every morning, Sunday's
excepted, for the proprietors, Messrs.
I T. Valentine and Arthur J hnstpne.
Mr. Valentine will be the responsible
business managcrand Mr.JohnstOne will
be the responsible editor of the paper.
It will be the aim of the management
to make the Honolulu Pkess a newspaper
in every sense ol the word. The
paper will contain twenty-eight columns
including a daily average of from six to
eight columns of local news, editorial
matter and short pithy articles of general
interest to the residents of the Hawaiian
Islands. It will be made distinctively
a family newspaper, and will endeavor
to reach the interests of all classes of
citizens without introducing the
features of the newspapers of
The editorial department will be conducted
in a candid, manly and impartial
manner, and while political theories'
and public actions will be carefully
probed, and, in many cases, severely
criticized, the. utterances of the -paper
will be jealously guarded and not aU
lowed to degenerate into abuse or personal
detraction. In thcnain, edi.
torial articles will be short and always
to the point ; but in cases where the
facts warrant .and public opinion demands,
fuller expositions of living
issues will be given.
Ourdocft department will contain
everything pf interest to the general
readers of the islands and will include
local notes from the other islands and
general correspondence on local topics.
This department will bemade spicy
and readable, and will, from time to
time be interspersed with humorous
local episodes. ' Full reports of all public
events and social entertainments
will be jivcn and a just equipoise will
be established among our various social
elements for special news.
The shipping department will be
made full and coirect ''and special arrangements
will be made for weekly
corrected lists of foreign shipping.
Full shipping notes of our inter-island
traffic '.ill be given, and the interests
and convenience of shippers will be
carefully studied and provided for,
Our advertising department will be
conducted on liberal business principles
in such a manner that the ends of
patrons may be reached by placing
their wants and desires before a majority
of the reading public. Promptness
and correctness in this department
will be assured. Arrangements have
been made with the proprietors of the
Saturday Press to carry out all
advertising contracts and subscriptions,
which will faithfully done
Collections will be made monthly and
all bill i against this paper will be paid
monthly -upon presentation to the business
In conclusion, the chief aim of the
Honolulu Press will be to foster and
protect Hawaiian interests Avhile especial
attention will be given to individual
industries and plantation enterprises.
We expect to merit the support
of the community and respectfully
ask"tlie privilege of a fair trial.
It is an open question, whether this
year's base-ball season has developed
the play of the members of the various
clubs. The scientific attainments in
the game take high rank, and the in
teresuincrcases in a corresponding degree;
but pf late some disappointment
has been felt at the evident lack of
on the part of players, compared
with their nlav at ' the oncnintr of the
season, lias familarity bred contempt?.
The impression is erroneous that the!
road supervisor lias an fnterest in the
carriage factories in town, or gets a

The large augmentation in the num
ber of the volunteer forces in Honolulu,
which 'has been lately made, would indicate
an activity on the part of the
present Ministry towards securing Hie
election of dependent candidates at
coming elections, which their opponents
can by no means afford to ignore.
That many of these proposed voters
are under legal age, in fact, mere boys,
is known; and it is to be hoped that
every possible obstacle will be" placed
by the Opposition in the way of illegal
voting in this respect. With the universally
acknowledged and growing
weakness of the present Administration,
and the prevalent desire of electors to
see things put Upon a better footing
both financially and otherwise, there is
no reason why hopes, should not be entertained
by the Independent Party
is well of carrying this district as
others, if the preliminary campaigning
for that purpose be wisely planned and
energetically carried out. This we hae
reason to believe will be .the case.
Perhaps the Independents Aould not
conscienciously resort to thy trick of
meeting their opponents witf their own
weapons ; but even the Administration
is fully aware that they will have to
meet at the polls an array of opponents
that have neither diminished in power
or number since the last elections.
The time has come when the effects of
bad Legislation and executive extrava
gance me being felt by all classes- of
voters, and something more substantial
than the windy promises of a faithless
Administration are needed to soothe the
prevalent spirit of discontent. Hard
times are upon us, that are felt by the
laboring man as well as the merchant
and planter. The cause is not inscrutable
to the ordinary voter, and "the
only way offering for relief, is through
action at the polls.

I met, a few days ago, a gentleman
who had just returned from the Sandwich
Islands. He was a full-fledged
American a stronc be!ieer in repub
lican institutions and the occasion of
his visit was the first time he had ever
stood in the presence of royalty. Never
having the opportunity of .siting that
little kingdom, I was quite interested in
listening to my friend's description of
the South Sea Paradise.
"I noticed," he said, "a curious antagonism
. between the American and
English residents. While both are what
you may call loyal to the reigning powers,
the Americans believe that the
country would do much belter as a republic,
while the English consider that
its prospects would improve under the
piotection of the British flag. There
are, therefore, two parties outside the
regularly organized government and
opposition sections one for
and one for annexation to Gieat
Britain. ' Besides", there are the iiatives,
who are devotedly attached to the King,
and who are as yet iir the conviction
that Hawaii is the grandest country on
the Almighty's footstool.
" Tell me about the cpurt," I asked,
"and how you felt in the presence of
" Well, vou know mv visit to the is
lands was one of business, and it was
necessary to make a direct appeal to
the King. I obtained a card from the
Chamberlain. Colonel fudd. who. bv
the. way, came up with me on the last
steamer, and presented . myself at the
palace gates. A dusky sentry conducted
me to the King, who was engaged
in writing the lives of the Ka-
tpehamehas tn his library. I found a
nleasant. intelligent and affable
man, who listened attentively to my
story aim appeared to thoroughly understand
the objects of my visit. I gave
the sentry a dollar, and I noticed that
at my exit there were four soldiers in
line, all of whom presented arms in the
most respectful manner. 1 was not
vain enough to attribute this courtesy
to the dignity of my personal appearance,
but concluded the dollar was the
key to this military honor. The next
morning I received an invitation to a
court ball, and there I saw royalty and
its belongings in gala attire.
( "That old tine American subject and
San Franciscan, Mr. Paul Neumann,
now Attorney General of the kingdom,
was one of the most conspicuous figures
in the long ballroom of the palace where
the reception was held. Paul was literally
coveted with gold lace, from the
crown ol his curly head to his foot. He
held a cocked hat under his arm, wore
a couit sword, and looked so awfully
imposing, that I hesitated about
him by his Christian name.
And when I saw him sajl "across the
room with a Princess on one arm and'
a lady of the loyal household on another,-1
shrank info a corner and said
to myself, " Can that be the Paul Neumann
whom I have heard solicting the
suffrages of the Tenth waid in a p'ain,
commonplace San Francisco hall ? Is
this brilliant butterfly the gay fellow
whom I have clinked glasses with in the
saloons of Kearny street? Can this
haughty apparition in gold lace,
an order about his neck and a sword
by his side, whom I have heard address
the presiding officer of a justices' court
as ' your honor,' and in. an eloquent
argument allege that his client never
owed .the $09 75 to the tailor, but that
there was a mistake somewhere, and he
was sure that' it was upon ' the tailor's
"But it was Paul, nevertheless,
though not the Paul of my California
associations. This was the Neumann
of the Court, and, as I saw him make
a low obeisance to His Majesty( and
whisper some diplomatic communication,
I suppose, into the car of the
British Minister, an old gentleman with
an extraordinarily developed nose, I
tould imagine myself in an orchestra
scat of the California Theatre, witnessing
a representation of 'The Grand
"When the brilliant courtier condescended
to notice me he was most profuse
in his introductions. I tell you,
for a plain American ciuVen like tny
self, it was most cmbarrasing to be presented
now to Her Royal Highness,
the princess of So-and-So, and then to
His Excellency, the Honorable Jones,
Embassador Extraordinary and Envoy
Plenipotentiary to the Court of His
Serene Majesty, King Kalakaua. I
seemed to be the only man in the room
who had not a handle to his name, or
a gojd stripe along his trowsers' leg. I
tried to remind Paul of some of our old
times, but 1 could "no more move him
t peg from the dignity of the Attorney
General in full uniform jit a court ball
than I could announce' Fnyself as the
Duke of Alviso.
"Presently a tahslim, military looking
person entered, made a low bow to the
King, and craved the royal ear -for a few-minutes.
'"Who i3 that?' I asked a little fellow-near
me, w.ho, like myself, was attiied in
the plain black garments of the
" 'That, sir,' said he, pompously, 'is
Brigadier General Hayley,
of the Hawiian forces; and 1
have ho doubt that he has matter of
grave importance to the welfare of the
kingdom else he would not importune

"I was crushed. I saw at once that this
fellow had no sympathy with ine, and I
longed more than ever for a gold stripe
down my trowsers leg.
" It seems to me," I remarked, "that
you did not approach the throne in the
proper sentiment. By your manner of
relating your experiences 1 should con
elude that you were on the putlook for
something to laugh at.
" Well, I was not." said my Hawai
ian traveler. " I'll be hanged if I did'nt
feel as serious as if I were in the pres
ence of the Emperor of Germany, or
Queen Victoria, or some of the other
great ones of the earth. Now', under
stand tne,that there was no bumbcombe
about the King, Dusky as he is, begad,
he looked every inch a King ; but it
was the gold-laced American that got
away with me. I saw a thin little chap
come in, witn ms nan oangeu away
down his foaehcad, who nearly touched
the floor as he bowed before the dias
on which the King and Queen were
seated. ' That,' said my little cicerone
is the Honorable Joseph H. Strong,
painter to his Majesty; and who is now-engaged
on a great work representing
the 'Conquest of the Island of Oahu by
Kamehameha, the Conqueror '
" I know " that's
Why, him," says I;
Joe Strong, one of the San Francisco
" My friend looked at me with a dis
pleased expression. ' I toid you, sir,
tie said, J that the -gentleman was the
Honorable Joseph H. Strong, historical
painter to the Royal Family of Hawaii.'
"This squelched me, of course, and
I had nothing rjjore to say. By and by
supper was announced, and it was
really a first class meal. I remarked
that all the honorables,painters,soldiers,
Ministers, Embassadors, etc., went at
the grub in good, common fashion, and
made the gin bottles for gin is the
national drink hum around that table.
My friend Paul made a '.speech, and
told some of those venerable jokes
which were current inSan Francisco
ten years ago. But they hit the
in the right place, for they
laughed as heartily as if the mold of a
weary decade had not rested on these
antique chestnuts; and. I heard one gold-,
laced neighbor of mine whisper to an-,
other that the Attorney General. Was in
great vein to-night, and tiat the last
thing he got off was about the best he
ever heard in his life.
"All this time, you must remember,'
the thermometer stood at about 100,
and though I, in my light black suit,
suffered considerably, it was an icicle
by comparison with the fellows in the
gold-laced casings. L It was a sight to'
watch their collars melt. The wax jn
the historical painter's bangs ran -down
his cheeks in blotches,
and the steam rising from the mass of
sweltering humanity was like one pf our
summer afternoon fogs. As for the.
ladies well, they wore dresses of light
material, but they were so saturated
that they clung to their shouldeis like
bathing suits. My last impression of
my only experience of royalty was the
vision of the Attorney General in the
mist clinging to the neck of the his-'
tprical painter, and reproaching him in
indignant terms for not putting enough
lime juice in the last round of gin
punch." San Francisco Post.
