which the microscope shows lo le of ihe same

is but one serious difficulty in relation to ihe
Java eruption theory, viz: llie apparently al
most limultaiicous appcaiance of the pheno
menon throughout the whole of the north
lempcialc zone in all parts of the United

With regard lo the Alaska eruption, it is now
ascertained lhat on the fith or Sth of October

Ileikcley, California, January nth.
I will venture lo add that my own inquiries
have convinced me that the oiiginal swift and
immediate transmission of (he volcanic haze
in an equatorial belt around the globe could
not possibly have been due to atmosplierlc
currents. These were concerned in its sub.
sequent slow distribution to the temperate
zones. I am led lo believe that owing to an
enormous height of the eruptive column (from
100 lo 200 miles) the rotation of the globe
produced a -,mtivarJ thrust in llie summit of
the column, and so imparled a directive
motion to the light upper vapors, which thus
shot down the inclined plane of the vast
accumulated cone of heavier vapors, and swept
off due west in a broad stream around the
equator, not ;'; the atmosphere, but alvrve and
upon it. I think the facts require us to assume
a westward, not an eastward course. Il ap
peared at Cape Coast Castle, September 1st ;
Trinidad, Venezuela and Panama, September
2nd, and Honolulu, September Jlh.
A full .statement of this hypothesis will prob
ably appear next month in scientific journals.
S. K. Itisnni-.
I'. S. Since Ihe above was put in l)pe, I
find in Nature for December 201I1 that Mr. W.
Clement Ley a;aranlicipates my hypothe
sis, as follows: "Granting thai Ihe distance to
which the vamr and dust were ejected from
the liovvels o( Krakatoa to have been so great
that Ihe more rapidly rotating suiface of the
caith brought Panama under this vapor and
dust in the space of less llian a week, ihen we
have a gigantic pepper-box capable of con
dtnsing and congealing vapor, which had long
remained undistuihcil in its seiene height.
We do not need to call in ihe known cm rents
to explain llie dispersion Poleward and there
fore eastward of the volcanic mailer, gravita
tion alone accounting for llie IruiiiiiiUsIon of
the panicles down the inclined isobaiic
.Mr. Ley's statement falls short in not pro
viding for the apparently fatal objection that
whatever loss of rotation is exiericnced by
the ascending mailer is lecoveicd, in ils de
scent. I make the transient westward thrust
merely a tliricthv movement down a greatly

there Is something peculiar in the circum-'
stances of these Islands lo lake us out of the
operation of the well asceitaincd laws of
currency, and who are endeavoring In .solve
Ihe problem by refeience only to Ihe facts
whicli arc within range of their owrr horizons,
ami Ihe other clats who say lhat currency
should not lie meddled with, for no one can
understand ils laws. The true philosophic
method is 10 look at Ihe facts of our case ami
compare them with a similar state of facts in
other countries, and knowing from hUory
what results there followed, we are In a posi

buy a well selected library of wxirks on finance
and political economy and study them, a
solution of our difficulties would lie more
likely to result therefrom than from days of
discussion with closed doors. It is not neces

Capt. John T. Wright arrived by the Ma
meila with his wife. Hit last visit here was in
1854. The captain is a son of the elder t'apl.
John T. Wright, who, at Ihe time of his death,
several years ago, was the oldest American
steamship captain then alive. Father and son
came to llie Pacific Const in IS50 and 1 roirRht
several steamers, engaged for many year in
Ihe coasting trade from Han I ranch north
and south. The Imttts employed on llml line
owned entirely b) father and son -were the
Fort t'otnl, Ohio, Sea Ilt,r, fjoliah, llrothet
Jonathan, Pacific and lndeendencc. In
185b the old Akamai brought over by Cap
lain Ellis, for llolantl and Cumrnjngs, was the
only steamer engaged In Inlcrisl.un! work here.
In that )ear the Wrights sent over the Kalama,
under Capt. Alfred Jones, Captain Wright,
Jr., follow ing the next )ear in the Sea llird
called by the nilivcs ihe Manuaukai, Captain
Wright remained here a ear as agent for the
steamers. He purchased the Akamai, whicli
was broken up heic and Ihe engines placed in
a new I mat called Ihe Eliza Anderson, which
is now running on Pugtt Sound (with another
set of engines) under cmnmnid of Capt. Tom
Wright, a brother of Ihe gentleman nlmut
wliom this is vv linen. 'Ihe Kalama was
wrecked on the shore of Knuai In S$.. In
that year Captain Wright lelurncd lo San
1 rancisco with Ihe Sea Hint, lie had brought
Ins steamers here under the lielicf thai ill
islands would be annexed lo Ihe United Stales
at lhal lime. They earned money here, but not
so much as Ihcy could earn in California, and
the Ht liinl was thctiforc withdrawn, Captain
Wright sevtnng his connection with island
liade and lemaining in California without again
visiting the kingdom until now. Mrs. Wright
has not been here liefore; and together I hey vv
visit Ihe volcano, and see what is to lie seen of
Oaliu, liefore returning. The captain ex
presses himself amazed at Ihe changes wide!

navigating our streets; and is greatly Im
pressed with the signs of material Improvement
everywhere apparent. lie is enthusiastic
aliout the Occinic steamers, which lie charac
terizes as "the finest and most comfortable" he
ever travelled on. He has a good word for
the Hawaiian Hotel, compliments the clinntc
and hopes to scj Its better advertised than we
now are--in California, in the United Slates
generally and in Europe. The captain is now
out of ihe steamship business entirely the
hrsl lime 111 fnrly years and has wisely begun
his vacation by a trip here "than which," as
Fulano hath il, "no man may bctlcr do."

In a recent issue of Ihe Saturday Press,
under the head of The Oilier Islands, appears
a few lines which I quote : "There was no
drunkenness on the streets in Hilo on New
Year's day, em-opt in the case of an old resi
lient named Shepherd, said by a conteniMirary
lo nave ilieil on llie 2nd Instant after a New
Year's spree." Novy it seems to me that Ihe
iarty who wrote this was no friend to ihs In
cbriatc. Shepheid hid not lived here three
years, so he was not an old resident. He
came here where he fell there would lie less
places where liipior is sold to tempt him, no
places lieiug licensed in Hilo, and sold only
by Chinese of unenviable reputation, whom
many foreign residents patronize for " dry
goods" "net goods" being sold on the sly
hhepherd had been thinking for al least five
weeks, lining no work dining that time. He
had Hied his very be.l lo gel away from the
vile tempter, Many had nicd to reclaim him.
When sober he would vvmk very hardt he was
an excellent workman and always had revcral
suits on hand lo make. He had great
i)iiipathy finin many. He had been in the
habit of spreting in Ids own liouse. When he
first came to Hilo he kept sober' for a consider
able length of lime, 1ml it Is thought that Ihose
who loved to dilnk 11 bioui-hl the temper 10
lum ami he could not resist.
fiWly, Uan.lv, Urn. of lift,
bimna of tumuli, souics of strife.
Could I tai half ibv-iursetlell
I hs b would bli (!,. safe in hell.
The door of Shepherd' lesidence had to lie
broken open, as lie had not Iwen seen for
three or four da)s. He dltd Ihe same day.
Moderate drinkers say he was " a weak man."
