Advertisement', to ensure nromnt Insertion, should he handed In before 6 r. M. t," It jis not often that the Daily Honolulu Press "blows its own trumpet," but we feel a pardonable pride in calling attention to the "Grand Offer" made by us, in another column of this issue. This is an enterprise which, we believe, is the first of its kind that has ever been attempted in this Kingdom, and, we trust, will receive the patronage it dese "s, as it is a bona-fide arrangement b) nch the public can get a six months' subscription to our paper, and a valuable Holiday Gift, at club rales, which arc much less than the regular prices when not combined. This offer is open only until January i, 1886. ' FRIDAY DEC. a, i8 auinnnsH murixa. It is a relief to find something rise to write and talk about than politics. The average citizen as well as the average editor gets mortally tired of continually digging at public officials and incum ' Adininstrations to get them to do their swoin duty and keep the "old Adam" down. Hut let it be distinctly understood that while it is a relief to drop these matters occasionally, we in. tend to return to them again : to to opium smuggling, to hula dancing, to the cheap-labor question, - to official stealing, to social slandering, and to all these public questions which must be discussed before good Government can be attained and a healthful social condition maintained. There are other dangers, however, which threaten the lives of ourcilizens beside those above mentioned : one of these is the fast and reckless driving which obtains in Honolulu and vicinity. It must not be supposed when fast driving is mentioned that hackmen are the only ones who indulge in this sort of thing. They are not There are gay young men who drive fast j there arc pretty young ladies who drive fast ; there are private coachmen who drive fast; there are reckless natives who drive very fast j there arc chinamen who drive other people's horses fast ; and there are even Government officials who drive f.ist. The policemen who infest our streets, however, hardly ever arrest any but hackmen for fast driving. Why this is so nobody but the policemen know and they refuse to tell. The carelessness which has called out these remarks was exhibited by a hackman 'msc name is unknown, but we wish the jjply generally to all fast drivers, oiu and young, plebeian and offiicial, pretty and ugly, The case we directly refer to will he found reported in our local columns where the personal safety of a lady1 was endangered and even her life was put in jeopardy. In this particular crse there was no possiblc.excuse which could be advanced to shield the hackman, yet it is pretty safe to assert that he will go unpunished. If he had been attending to his business the thing would not have happened could not have happened, The worst of this fast driv ing business is, that there seems to be a general fecling'of indifference on the part of drivers ai to the rights of the street passenger. In most cities as large as Honolulu the law is strictly r' clown by the couits, that the foot- passenger has the right of way in all cases, except in cases fire, where the right of way is given to the fire department. Now we do not ish to be called a carper, but it is only a right we assert when we make bold to demand on the part of the women and children of this city that the authorities take some practical action in the matter and put a stop to all fdst and reckless driving. It is a pity that the newspapers are always forced to point out the duties of the police force before the determine to perform them," while a Supreme judge has occasionally to check their cal in other directions. I I LIH "Are there two sets of laws in Hawaii, one for Chinese Sabbath-breakers, and another for boat-clubs, merchants, the favored few and white man gen erally ? Are our laws local and not general operative in Nuuanu and Maunakca streets, but dead letters in palace-yard " and in high places generally ? Is there some official Tctzel who can sell or grant, indulgences to law-breakers? Who is the greatest offender, the ignorant, heathen coolie, or the intelligent, educated civilized gentleman when they each trample on the laws." The Friend. Editok Daily Honolulu Press : Sin I have noticed in the Pacific Commercial Advertiser, on one or two occasions lately, reference to the dilatorincss of volunteers in coining forward to offer their services to the Board of Health as sanitary visitors in the wards of the city. Why this should be so why itis that amongst the many here who arc always ready and willing to give a share of their time to charitable and christian work, there cannot be found s'even or eight who will actively interest themselves in the sanitary condition of the city, is a curious question to me. It would seem as though self-interest would bring volunteers forward if nothing else would. We all, I may say, like to see o - o- " premises clean and drained, (even if we have to sweep and sluice our dust and drainings into our neighbors lot) and if we would have our prospective good health as well as our present freedom from disease assured to us, we must insist upon those about us carrying out sensible sanitary arrangments for the good of the whole. The prevailing cold weather has mitigated, to a certain degree, the noisome smells that, in every ward in the city heat of summer, betrayed the presence of unhealthy matte at our doors. And no sooner do we miss the effluvia than we forget its cause and dismiss the whole Subject of city sanitation from our minds. But I, for one, cannot help remembering the typhoid and malarious fevers that have prevailed here during the past summer, and which I am confi dent will break out again upon the approach cf warm weather. There is work in each ward for inspectors ; and it must not be forgotten that if any contagious disease visits Honolulu and finds- such inspectors have not come forward in response to the invitation of the Board of Health and have not done some good work that the contagion will visit all alike and strike down whomsoever it pleases. Then no one can blame the Board of Health. It does all it can, and if, for political, social or religious icasons volunteers refuse to act with the present Government, they, who hhould have come forward, will be the only on t to blame.

' DAILY HONOLULU PRESS, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1885. as irrtlienrtt Hot A deacon in a Western town recently died. His pastor soon paid a visit of condolence to the bereaved widow. She asked the minister if he would like to sec the funeral wreath. He assented. She led him to the much prized memento, and pointed out its peculiarities. In 'a broken voice she said : "The red flowers were made of his red flannels ; the white ones of his white flannels'. The stamens were made of coffin shavings, and the pistiles of his beard. The berries and buds were made of the pills that were left when he died, and the feathery part was made of the feathers of the last chicken dear Tames, killed before he was taken ill. All this she said without a pause for breath, and ended her ghastly description of the treasuicd Wreath by imploring the bewildered clergyman to lead in prayer. The Christian at work states, "This story has just started. It is not to be supposed it will stop on its travels short of Australia or Siam." Australian papers please copy and forward to Siam. Ed. Press. Tif Trnipernilre Qiirttlnn In Jfxw Xrk. New, York,. November 17th. A mass meeting was held in Stcinway Hall last nifjht, the first of a scries called to consider a bill which the Church Temperance Society and the Society for the Prevention of Crime will jointly press in this winter, regulating the liquor traffic in this city. The bill has the approval of the press generally. It has been examined by scores of public men, lawyers, doctors and chemists, and no flaw has yet been found in it. The license fee is to be $1,000 for spirituous liquors and $100 for beer, and bars to be closed at midnight, and District Attorneys to try excise casc3 forthwith. The bill prohibits saloons within 200 feet of church or school-house. Rev. Ii. W, McDonald represented the attitude of the Church Iemperancc Society as follows : " We take the ground that the Bible is not totally for abstinence. Men have been obliged to leave their pulpits for saying this. The total abstainer has learned to speak the truth of his neighbor. They used to think and believe that no one except total abstainers had a right to go to temperance meetings, The position of the church is one of common sense. That may not be very high, but it is one which has great power with men. The Society does not try to stop all liquor business, but we shall do what we can to mitigate the curse of liquor."
