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,
FRIDAY DEC. a, i8
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 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. C,

DAILY HONOLULU PRESS, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1885.
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.

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."
