The Volcano House.
Ms. Editoe Dear Sir.
In a communi cation from your correspondent Ornithor ynchus I reed some emphatic abase of the fare at the Volcano House at Kilanea, which ought not to so nnanswered.
My own experience was entirely diflerent from that of the beast with a bill My party consisted of twelve very empty and ravenous people, who found the fare excel lent and plenty, and who voted the proprie tor, pipe and alia success. I am afraid that O either must have struck the place after everything had been devoured and before new supplies could ar rive or else he is a confirmed dyspeptic. lYe found Mr.
Jordan very attentive and obliging, and had no complaint to make of the food, and I know of many parties who make the same report.
Any party that takes Os advice and carries food along will be apt to feel asuameu when Mr.
Jordon seats it at his long tabk.
Yours truly. C.
Haiku, Oct. 2, 1881. Intemperance.
Mr. Editor It seems very strange to me that all temerance lecturers do not pay more attention to intemperance in eating and working.
It is a fact that more lives are lost, and harm done to the progress of the human race by overwork and the rapid eating ol unwholesome food than all other causes combined.
Intemperance in religion bends a large number every year to the insane asylums and to death by suicide.
It has even been suggested that the United States flag should be made more typical of the American peopte by having a tryiugpan placed among the stars.
Why should all temperance workers not make a vigorous attack on all adulterations, overwork, overeating, and overstudy Coin pare the dyspeptic stomach with the beer and wino drinking people of Germany and France. A dyspeptic stomach is a rare thing in Germanv, and still a German is almost lost without his beer.
America is full of temperance lecturers, while iu Europe none are to be met with, except occasionally i poor dyspeptic Ameri can.
If our dyspeptic temperance talkers will only take the advice of St.
Faul, and take a little wine for the stomachs sake, they will find improved health, and a much less gloomy outlook for the welfare of the human race.
Even Christ changed water into wine after a great feast, and in all probability aided in that way in preventing ailments that would otherwise have followed the over eating of the many good things prepared for them. A moderate use of any of the good things of this world will hurt no one.
But w . intemperance in temperance talk, work, eating, studv, and historical religious emo tions do much harm.
Honolulu, Oct. 3, 1SS4. tween the two leading races in this country, says that a change came over all this a few years ago and that some adventurer whispered in royal ears a spirit of seperation between the natives and the haoles Now the Editor is entirely wrong.
It was not an alien adventurer who did this, but a white son of the soil.
Dishop said, several years ago, in addressing a number of his coreligionists and cous ins that there was such a nameless taint and degree of filthiness in the evcryday garrulous discourse of the Hawaiian people that the missionary parents had never allowed their children to associate with the native, and had ever sedulously kept them separated from what they deemed ineradica ble pollution Therefore, it would appear from this statement that the fathers of Ilev.
Bishop and his coreligionists first com menced the separation of races, which the sons and their sympathizers have since maintained, and maintain at this day. A native writer in a letter addressed to the r. C.
Advertiser on the 9th December, 1873, spoke as follows : A great deal has been said by a few persons in our commu nity, to the effect that the natives are an tagonistic to the foreigners.
This I deny, and I take this opportunity to say that no such feeling has existed, or now exists This letter was sigued by D.
Kalakaua who now sits upon the thiono of his ances tors, and His Majesty says in all his words and actions at this day as he said then We have always welcomed foreigner to our shores.
Let them come to bring ruoiiev and skill to develop the resources of the country.
Here, as in the freest and strongest nation in the world, all men will be protected in their rights under civilized law There fore, the separatists and antagonisers of races weie and are those who, as stated by Rev.
Bishop feared the name less taint of contact with wha they deemed an inferior race, and who maintain at this day the antagonism by speaking contemp tuously of the official capacity of a Kapeua, an Aholo, or a Kaulukou, simply because thev are Hawaiians. A. B.

Mr. Editou Sir: I have just had my at tention directed to a letter on The Sugar Basis in your issue of 2d inst. Puzzled Planter must still be suffering from the Spreckelphobia epidemic.
When he re covers I shall be glad to answer any ra tional enquiry he may make as to the table in question.
Yours, etc, The Compiles.
