On Wednesday last the manager of the Ilccia
plantation, at Koolau, had occasion to dis
charge a number of Chinamen who had been
working there as day hands. They got their
'1Bp1Ke an' furniture together in apparent
readiness for departure, but still lingered about
the place as if disinclined to go, and located
themselves so as to interfere with the mill work.
For aught the manager knew, their intention
may have been to create a further disturbance
by persuading others to join in a "strike,"
and he naturally ordered them off. Refusing
to obey the order, some natives who were
present became a little officious, and hard
words between them and the Chinese were
bandied back and forward. As a result, a
melee soon ensued in which bamlxra sticks
and other weapons were freely used, and two
Chinamen apparently "laid out." Dr. Mat
thics was immediately called upon to attend,
but he found that the dead men were only
plajing 'possum and that neither had rcccivcil
any severe injuries.
It is desirco to call the attention of the

The people of Lahaina have been greatly
exercised over the failure of the government to
prov idc a physician for the neighborhood. A
number of prominent citizens sign a public
protest, printed in the Gazette of last Wednes
day. It reads as follows: "We, the under
signed, residents of Lahaina, desire through
your valuable columns to express in the
strongest terms possible our condemnation of
the government in their non-ability (or un
willingness) to provide us with n physician.
On account of being In this condition, a native
named Hoomana lost his life. The circum
stances of the case arc as follows: On Satur
day cv'cning Hoomana and Kalo became
involved in a quarrel, the result of which was
that Hoomana received a cut in his leftside
about two or two and half inches in length,
from which cut the bowels protruded. A
messenger was sent to Wailuku for a physician.
He rcturneil on Sunday noon, and almut 5
o'clock on the same day a messenger arrived
from the sheriff stating that the government
physician was too ill to go to Lahaina. The
man Hoomana lingered until Monday morning,
at which time he breathed his last. The
man's life, we believe, could have been easily
saved, as bis bowels were not cut nt all, but
they remaining out, without any attention,
became swollen and inflamed, which naturally
caused his death. We say, with strong em
phasis, that wc believe the death of this man is
attributable to the government. If the govern
ment physician was ill, why not send romc one
else, as we believe there is more than one
physician on the east side. There are two
plantations on this side within five miles of
each other, cmplovjng between five and six
hundred men and women. They are liable to
accidents, and should one occur, and they be
treated as was this poor Hoomana, then it will
be time for us to enter our protest, not in
writing, but in person"

SCHOOL TliAdlt Kits' VACATION.
Editor Saturday Press Sir: Vou ad-
milted into the editorial columns of your last
Saturday's Issue what nil teachers and those
who know and sympathize with a teacher's
work will consider a rather ill-natured para
graph. It seems to me hardly probable that
the words I allude to emanated from your
own pen or from the pen of any one at nil
acquainted with the work of education. I can
but think they must have slipped into the
paper by one of those accidents so common to
the newspaper. At all events, as the para
graph contains a slightly erroneous statement
and an unfair comparison, perhaps you will Ire
good enough to allow me a short space to
correct the error and to attempt to convince
inu wiuci ui 111s uiuairncss.
The error is involved in the following:
"Teachers of schools have much more time to
themselves than those of almost any other
avocation; they have but five hours' work to
perform daily." It is not always safe to state
the minimum required to represent the work
actually accomplished. True, the actual hours
of teaching required by the Board of Educa
tion, arc live, but is not the personal prepara
tion of the teacher to Ire called work? There
are very few subordinate teachers who can
afTord to spend less than two hours daily on
this important branch of their labor, and docs
the writer imagine that the principal's work
ends at 2 r. M. ? He has accounts to keep,
exercises to correct, work to plan, sick to
visit, complaints to answer, and a host of
things to do, which, all or nearly so, must be
done after that hour.
The comparison with "mercantile clerks
and liook-kccpers generally," is unfair in at least
two ways. First, everyone will allow that one
hour of good earnest work in teaching, will
take more steam out of one, to use a common
expression, than two spent at a desk. Half
an hour's worry, with a disagreeable temper or
a stupid child, will effect one a hundred times
more than an error in the trial-balance.
Altogether, the wear and tear of a teacher's
work is beyond doubt far greater than that o
any one in a clerical capacity, and, therefore,
to do good and efficient work longer intervals
of total cessation of labor are necessary for
teachers than for clerks and bookkeepers
The second thing to take in consideration is
the Ay of teachers. How would a clerk or
liookkeepcr like to spend his life for the
salary of a teacher? I turn out every year
boys of sixteen who begin with salaries as
great as some teachers of several years' stand
ing are novv getting; and what would you
think, Mr. Editor, if you saw )our sons whom
you have trained yourself and fitted for their
office, earning higher salaries than your own,
in lar interior capacities, under the same em
ployers ? This is what teachers see every year
111 1111 Kinguom. aurciy, some compensation
should be given for this, besides the ioy and
pleasure in the success of the pupil, Clio
is the teacher s son.
One word more, if the teacher happens to
find an hour to spare from his labors, he is
sometimes obliged to employ it in outside
work to eke out sufficient to pay his way, buy
a few books, or to enable him to get a change

free from all responsibilities. Still it is r1 my
uwn opinion inai ine cierKS nerc are over
worked, at least their hours arc too long. In
conclusion, I should like to say a word for the
ladies who presented the petition for the extcn
sion of the holidays. lean vouch for them,
that they do not fall under the head of those
described In the concluding sentence of the
paragraph under notice as " physically incom
petent, or invalids, or their work at variance
with their natural tastes." A longer breath
ing time than one week is necessary, lioth
for teachers and pupils, at the end of a term.
The writer of the paragraph overlooks the fact
that the pupils are to be considered. The last
term was particularly fatiguing and arduous,
owing to the long continuance of south wind
and several other causes.
I am, sir, yours laithfully,

T1IK Jv-tfir TAX LAW.
An Inquiry and a suggestion respectfully ad
lressed to his excellency the minister of
Section 10 says : "All carts and dravs shall
he subject to an annual tax of two dollars each,
aside from value as iicrsonal property, to be
paid by the owners thereof." The clause
aliove, Winning with "aside," implies that
carts and drays are not only to pay a specific
tax ui iwu uuuars cacn, out arc also to ue
taxed as personal property.
But Section 17 says t "All personal property
within this kingdom, not subject to specific
taxes, shall be subject to an annual tax of three
iiuarters of one per cent uxm the cash value of
tnc same." Here the plain implication is, that
lersonal property, subject to specific taxes,
shall not be subject to the general tax of three
quarters of one per cent.
Inquiry t Shall the assessor therefore stop
with the assessment of the two-dollar specific
tax on A's cart, or shall he also assess the value
of the cart, say $75, to A, as personal
Suggestion 1 That the native assessors be in
structed to follow the English version of Sec
tion 25, rather tlian the Hawaiian, since the
latter omits the "eight" before "years,"
and hat "years'' " na makahiki" only, and
as it stands is quite incomprehensible. A.

of her coming to Honolulu may become an

New England Mutual Life Insurance Co.
The thirty-eighth annual statement of the old fashion
ed fmrtty mutual life Insurance company whose name
appears aboe, has been ssurd. Organized In 1843
when little was known by the average public in this
country at least concerning the advantages of this
most unselfish beneficent principle In Its application foi
the protection of relict dependencies, the old New
England Mutual Life Inst Co, of I tost on, Massachu
setts, takes rank among the early exponents of this im
portant auxiliary to the Interests of virtuous and provi
dent persons, as also communities, upon whom charity
makes many requisitions In favor of the "always with
ou" unfortunates of earth. The history of this com
pany shows such a record of management that any
man who contemplates providing his dependencies with
the indemnity afforded by life Insurance, may safely
conclude that his contract will be honorably complied
with when the time for pajment ofhisclaimshall arrive.
Heing strictly mutual by Its charter, no stockholders or
other persons whatever are entitled to any advantage,
one over another member. 1 he fact that this company
his uniformly declined to entertain any of the many
schemes, catch-penny plans or gilded pill Inducements,
by which to rope in the unwary gudgeon, that are In
vogue by less scrupulous companies. Is of itself an
cvidrnce of dignified management, as also the best
possible argument in favor of its well deserved reputa
tion of high merit, than which no life insurance Insti
tution extant stands superior. As will be observed by
the annual statement above referred to, the gross assets
of this company on the first of January, 188, was
$16,910,465.97, against which all liabilities aggregate
$,3i57457-99. leaving the handsome surplus on 4 ftr
ttnU basis of reserve $2,635,894.93 or If estimated by
the New )ork standard at 4J4 per cent., the suplus
would be about fouk million dollars, or nearly
one-quater of the entire assets of the company.
We are not aware of any more desirable institution to
be insured with than the New England Mutual Life
Ins. Co., and we are confident that no honorable ad
ministration is exercised by any corporation than that
so long expressed by this company under the direction
of PreVt Benjamin F. Stevens, whose personal atten
tion is not omitted in even the minor details of the
business of his trust. An examination of the applica
tion and form of policy Issued by this company Is re
commended before parties Insure elsewhere.
