No law exists here against the use of firearms
on one's own premises, and the result is that
bullets from unknown sources often traverse
our yards and streits, and sometimes enter our
very lioui.es. Parlor rifles are in very common
use. in tow n, and being noiseless, serious dam
age and even loss of life may be effected by
their use, with little prospect as regards detec
tion. When assassination can be directly
traced to their use, perhaps there will be some
thing done to mend the matter. On Sunday
evening last, a bullet from one of these deadly
instruments whizzed by tvvo police officers who
were seated in front of the station-house,

Queen 1'mma took her departure from Ililo,
September 28th, a large party of Hawalians

(whose guest she w as) lo escort her to the dock.
There vvcic a large number of torch-lights and
fancy lanterns carried by the escort, with mu
sic at tlie head of the procession, winch was
composed of men, women and youths. The
carriage in which she rode was drawn hy men.
The vicinity of Ihc dock was crowded. Tlie
torches lighted iqi the water finely and the moon
emerging from the clouds as U was just rising,
made the scene particularly beautiful, as it
threw its bright rays across the water to where
the'Queen was almut to embark. The lioat
that convejed Her Majesty was towed by
another; each carried several torches. A num
ber of boats accompanied the steamer with
their lights as far as they could, which made
another fine scene. Probably there has never
lccn as beautiful a night scene at Ililo. The
Queen was accompanied by Miss Peabody and
Miss Stillman. Three cheers were given as
Her Majesty departed The old crater of
Kilauea is particularly, active. No one can
now v isit the new , or south lake, as all com

the place where you enter it. Rev. Titus Coan
in his liook entitled "Life in Hawaii," speaks
of it having occurred at one time when he visited
it. There's a new lake at the entrance aliout one
and a half miles in circumference, which is
active, and at the present time bids fair to be
very large. Those who havi! seen it say it is a
grand sight. The crater seems to be going to
repeat itself. . . . .The beautiful comet can now

natives, isquitcunmistakablysliown. Whenever
she rides abroad here a targe crowd accompa

demonstrations of respect and affection. Much
of this is due, no doubt, to the circumstance
that she represents the old line of 'chiefs, and
is the last of them too; and moreover it can
not be concealed that the present head of the

There were two or three refreshing show ers
last week, but generally speaking, the weather
i'vvery warm and raids dusty.
An alarm, front the bell tovter.lavt Saturday
evening, about seven o'clock, called out the
fire department. It una reported that the In
ane Asylum was on fire, but it proved to be a
lot of rubbish burning. Several of the engine
companies went a considerable distance before
returning, although it was soon know 11 allicail
4iuailcr that it was a false alarm. We have
known of several cases vv here the boys have
ilraireevl their enu'uics several blocks to find
that there was only a pile of trash burning or a
mosquito net on fire. This, of course, can not
be helped at present, but it is not v cry pleasant
for the members of the companies, We
would suggest that the department agree
upon a return call, to be sounded w hen defi
nately ascertained that the alarm i a false one.
This could be done liy striking say two, four,
tvvo stroke, or two, three, two. If any certain
number of strokes were given,, thik would be
confounded with the number of someone of
tlie wards, but by tapping as ubove nigge-ded,
there would be 110 possibility ol confusion.
We understand that one of our residents has
lately received a letter from i(. Hillcbrand,
wherein Is mentioned the fact of a aire of lep
rosy by means of the internal administration of
creosote. As this case it related as has ing come
directly under the observation of the Doctor
himself, no one who has ever known him, will
be able to doubt Its existence, or attribute the
infoinution to mistake. His high character
and unquestionable educational attainments
will preclude the entertainment of such a pos
sibility, i Ic i dosirous of having the remedy
tried here, and hat sent formula: for its use.
In this connection we might say, there exists
now in this town, a notable instance of a cured
leper, who attributes hi present immunity fioni

many years since at the hands of Dr, llille
brand, while practicing in Honolulu. He' has
remained without any return of Ihe disease
during ten 01 twelve years, although an

him in land. The Doctor would, doubtless,
at the present lime, be surprised to see his for
uier patient a luallhy man, married; and a

Yesterday afternoon, about 1 o'clock, an as
sault and cutting with a razor was made by Mr.
ilkmson (better known here in former years
as the "King llarber, ) upon a half-caste
woman named Mary Howard. The assault
was made on the woman while in her own
room, and a large gash inflicted on the inner
side of ihe forearm immediately below the
elbow joint. Wilkinson was immediately ar
rested aud put into confinement, while the
woman proceeded lo ihe office of Dr. Ilroilie,
and there had her wound dressed. Afterwards
she was taken to the hospital. The wound is
not, in itself, dangerous. A little girl, a
daughter of the woman named, was also pres
ent when the assault was made, and In attempt
ing to interfere, got two of her fingers badly
hacked. This makes the third woman on'
these islands that has felt the idge of Mr.
Wilkinson's razor.. Several years ago, he was
indicted oira charge of assault with intent to
kill his wife, but before his trial he was mys
teriously released from Jail and not heard of for
some months, when he suddenly turned up in
San Francisco, in the hands of the police, oi a
charge of the same nature. After serving out
a short term in gaol, he was again released.
Soon after, he Killed, or wounded a woman so
badly't as to receive next to a life sentence.
After several years of good behavior in gaol,
however, he was respited, and soon after re
turned to this city, where he has now been liv
ing for some months past. He was told by the
authorities of his liability to re-arrest on the old
cliaigc, and ordered (o leave the country in a
given time and warned that a disobedience o
the order would bring about an arrest. This
he ignored, and insisted in his intention to re
main. It has long been evident that lie has not
been afraid of the authorities. Hut, arc the
authorities afraid of him? If so, for what

The weather has been very fine, with occa
sional showers at night Mr. Montano has
been several days at Hanalei, and succeeded
in getting some very fine views of the valley,
which he estimates to be worth, lohim, a great
deal of money. He took one view at Kalihi
kai which he values at $1,000. He went from
Hanalei, after photographing the residences of
the principal natives, such as Judge Kakina
and others, to do the same for Hon. Mr. Palo-
ban. He will go thence to Mr. W. II. Rice's
where he is to take several views of that gen
tleman's place Mr. Coulter has aUo lieen

valley from one of the adjoining hills. This
should be a very fine work as he had a most
lovely day for it . . . .The new law was ushered
in very quietly on Sunday the 1st. A few of

expenses for this quarter, A Chinaman who
was arrested by a policeman for selling him a
bottle of liquor, was tried before Judge Kakina
on the 25th ult,, the judge reserved, his decis
ion until Monday last, when he gave it in favor
of tile Chinaman. The Chinaman, in order
to show his appreciation of the native race, In
vited several of his friends to his store and
opened a case of brandy in their honor, and
they had a grand time. . . .To judge by the
nice get-up of the policemen with their new
badges and new instructions, we may expect a
fcvery vigilant time from them, although on
Tuesday evening the judge seemed to think
they overstepped their duties. It seems a
policeman from I.iliue has been in this district
for some days past looking for some Chinamen
who ran away from Mr, Wilcox's plantation.
On Tuesday evening this policeman, with Mr,
Kaupcna and three others, waited on the road
opposite a house occupied by one Ah Ana,
who has a gang of day laborers, working for the
Princeville plantation company. The China
men being uid off that evening, had occasion
to make a good many trips to the stores lor
provisions, etc., between seven and eight
o'clock. The policeman estimated between
thirty and forty Chinamen jussed them, and
were hailed and examined in turn, until three

CRUZAtTS DISCOURSE OX
Tit I, Tim. 4 13.
Speaking especially to young people and
working people, last Sunday evening, Mr.
Cruzan said in substance 1
You can and Jyou ought lo be, something
more than mere bread-winners and bread
eaters. Kvcry man has within him capacities
for growth which will reward intense, unrclax
ing toil. You arc not a machine, but n being
of free spiritual powers. Ihe ground of a
man's culture lies in his nature, and not in his
calling. Your trade, or daily work, Is not the
great end of Jour being. Don't let your
daily work bound the range of your soul-vision.
You are a mm, not n mere worker. You
ought not to be content to be a mere handler
of tools, or a keeper of accounts. So I urge
you especially lo "attendance to reading."
Let me give you a few hints upon reading 1
I. Find some lime everyday for useful read
ingsomething besides the omnipotent news
paper, " Vou have no time?" Save the min
utes the odd ones thrown away. To-morrow,
on the way to your work, buy one of Putnam's
"Happy Volumes," or an L'merson "Little
Classic," or any smalt-sized volume, put it in
jour pocket and give it your odd, idle mm
utcs. You will need a second one before the
week is out. 2. Own the liooks vou read.
" You have no money?" Your tobacco money
will keep you in liooks. 3. Read with atten
tion. Slovenly, desultory, effeminate, pas
sive "reading is a kind of intellectual dram
drinking. 4. Digest what you read. Really
great books should be read and re-read till
their ideas pass like the Iron atoms of the
blood into the mental constitution, 6, Read
with independent judgment and critical spirit.
There is no more reason why you should slav
ishly agree with a book than with a man with
whom you converse.
What shall wc' read? "Shall wc read
novels?" It is a vexed question which is the
greater fool, the man who condemns all novels
and will read none of them, or, the man who
reads all novels vvitnout selection, lucre are
good, pure, elevating novels. Hut fiction is
only the dessert of the intellectual feast, Don't
make it the whole, or even a large part, of
your mental bill of fare, -You might as well
expect to be strong physically and cat nothing
but dessert, as to be strong mentally and read
nothing but novels.
No two persons need exactly the same
course of reading, hence one cannot parlicii;
larizc what to read before an audience. The
liest that can be done is to give a few helpful
hints : I, Hither alone or, with some friend,
or with a manual, tike President Porter's
" liooks and Reading," mark out a course of
reading for yourself. 2. The plan should be
a broad one, covering years. 3. Don't be in
haste to finish it. Franklin's,rulc, " Whatever
is worth doing at all is worth doing well,"
applies to nothing more pally than to mental
culture.. 4. Don't slavishly follow yous course.
Whenever you are interested in a valuable'
liook outside your course read it. 5. It is
impossible to read all the good books. Selec
tion is inevitable, 6, Don't be in haste to
read the new books. 7. Choose books of
acknowledged reputation. As the dictionary
makers say, "Get the best." 8. Read, and
master, all the books that relate, directly or
indirectly, to your work, trade or profession.
Then, 9. llegin where you are most ignorant
or where your ignorance most annoys you.
10. liegin where you are most interested. 11.
Hut begin. 12. Keep at it.
Whether your library is large or small,
w hethcr you read many books or few, put one
book above all others the bible. Never
cease studying that, The man who owns only
n bible, reads it, and loves it, has a library
that reaches from earth to heaven.

Coronation It is that Ihc ceremonial Is wilhout

an heroic conception; a halo of barbaric
splendor crowned Its birth. It is true that
civilization gradually desollcd those rulers of
most of their original attributes) that they de
generated from generation to generation,
and finally became commonplace; but they
never so far forgot themselves, or their origin,
or the majesty peculiar to their race as lo ac

We can imagine the indignation and disgust
of the alwrigincs whose .shades silently but
wrathfully regard, from the twilight of the

They may have forgiven anil forgotten the fool

With them, the primal majesty of the breech

add nothing to It.
In those days, even the king's "shadow was

courts will of course respond lively holding
their sides thc-while and quaking with irre
pressible laughter for there is no real necessity
of their taking offence at what must seem to
them like a hugh joke, though it is offered in
dead earnest. They may gather together such

A revival of the millinery trade may be an

less scatter their small change, and perhaps

as was never before known or dreamed of in
