TUESDAY DEC 15.
It is not often that the Daily Hono-"
lulu Pkkss " blows its own trumpet,"
but we feel a pardonable pride in calling
attention to )he '' Grand Offer "
made by. us, in another column of this
Lmie. This is an enterprise which, we.
believe, is the first, of its kind thatihas
ever been attempted in this Kingdom,
and, we trust, will receive the
It deserves, as it is a
arrangement by which the public can
get a six months' subsdrlon 'to our
paper, and a valuable Holiday Gift, at
tlub rates, which are much less thaii the
regular' prices when not combined.
This offer is open only until January i,
1886. .. .
M'i. .! I

Sooner or later the Government4 .will
find that their neglect of needed 're
pairs for the convenience and health of
the citizens of Honolulu will result in a
further falling off of the already small
support how givenun tufas a matter of
Apolitical expediency, the authorities will
bcglad to perform the reasonable demands
of the citizens bf Honolulu in
.ordcr'to,, regain sufficient suffrage to
appear before the public as candidates
for any office. There seems to be a
general disposition and a studied
effort among" those iiv authority to
ayoid. doing. at all, or a,t least -to continually
delay, any public work which
practically benefits the tax-paying public
of Honolulu and vicinity. With
'disease festering in our streets and
alley-ways, with road-beds broken up
and .bridges, broken down,, with graded
streets filled with rubbish, and streets
which have l?ecn declared public high
ways hot graded at all, with general
dilapidation from Punchbowl hill to
the Esplanade and from Makiki to
Yalarna, with all this ami with a general
election comingion? it would seem that
any Government not totally unfattliful and
Indiffcrerit to the' public good w6uld at
least try to rectify the error of its ways,
or at least offer the public some plausible
excuse for dereliction and lieglect.
If the people, demand an explanation
of any of these matters, of which the
above mentioned niay be taken as a
sample, these tax-gathering authorities,
; sniffle and reply, "wc arc doing all we
can with our limited means." What
the people want to know, and what
they will knmv before. such
' tehee goes much further, is, "Viat has
been done with the money ?,'' 1 It is a
ccW fuc'ti that since the prese'nt
went into power jKy have
increased the expenditures
Owino to a lack of information, be-
ing unable to secure a copy - of any
paper which arrived on the1 &
- Sffec&elS, the PrIjss was unable to
piibllsti 'a full or even correct account
ot the death of Vice-President Hendricks.
We hope by the arrival of next
.,ui6ntVs mail to have better lacilttiefor
aecuring late foreign news. Besides
the death of the Vice-President of the
United States, a Madrid dispatch announces
the death of King Alfonso, of
Spam. Queen Christina has' been pro-,
claimed regent, but peace and quiet
are not at all assuicd, as fears of a Car-list
uprising arc entertained. Spain
has been an unfortunate priest-ridden
country for years, and deserves a better
fate when she is wise enough and
brave enough to free hcrsoH from the
political religious tyranny that has en
thralled her for aces. The Liberals bf
the United Kingdom have met with a
disastrous defeat, which leaves the
future political movements of the
different political parties uncertain.
Servla and Bulgaria have signed an
armistice, which, it is hoped, will result
in permanent peace. '

New Vork, Dec 4. The Tribune
says, editorially; The Chamber of.
Commerce has pasied a resolution dc
daring that the Government ought to
to something to encourage the building
of American ships. The resolution
is a wood one and ought to have some
"effect, but it is a sad fact that the Ad
ministration does not care at all about
indefinite declarations of this kind. It
indulges in glittering generalities itself
about reform and other important mat
terS, and does not mean anything, and
naturally it supposes that generalities
of other bodies or societies are equally
meaningless with its own. Vet this
Chamber of Commerce might make an
impression upon this Democratic Administration
if it would indulge in a
little emphatic .denunciation of the
Postmaster-General's present effort to
damage our shipping and mercantile
interests. What js more, it would stop
Mr. Vilas' assertion that the fdreinn
mail service of this country is better
than ever belore.
Ni:W Yokk, Dec: 4.7-The Herald.
prints an interview with the Peruvian
.Minister, iiiiemere, in rcgarci 10 me
cause of the war. He said : "Obiec
tion was taken to Gen. Iglesias because
he undertook to sum a treaty of peace
with Chile and establish a Government
which, be alleged, would be under the
auspices of Chjle. Many efforts' haye
been made to bring about a reconciliation,
but without effect until now, when
peace will be received with joy, The
people of Peru were tired of warfare
and its consequent devastation and loss
of . life, and will hail with joy the new
era, when commerce and trade will be
resumed and the blessings of peact
brought' about. Gen. Iglesias fulfilled
his mission, a difficult and ungrateful
one, injiraking peace with Chile. After
two'cars of honorable and
services, lie will Ije happy foran
q letting some one else
continue the Government. He will be
glad of the result, for he has' constantly
made efforts at a reconciliation, offering
the most generous conditions,
