the cdltoiialt of the llullctin's every Issue.
lor Instance, Ihe llullelln of September 1st
contains editorially the following illustrations
of lis "cool Knglishi" "This fad is fallible

"llowescr let as lie thankful for what w chase

of Ihe torch-light procession occur the following
brilliant sentence : "The first coop had a

ponsible for it.)
In the issue of September 2rulT the Uulletin
goes, "off on a tangent and refused to follow

A ease n( suicide occurred al KalmltM on
Weilneaday lh Jrd Inttani, alil llrjo A. M.,
eatisinj: death in alnsnt h-ilf an hour. I
reacheil hfs house in ten minutes after the
slnting. He was laying mi his back in the
(Mntry with a frtifnl wtiuihI in his forehead
and a Smith ft Wesson five-shooter revolier al
his siilr with one chamber empty, lie was
still alite Inn iinennacrntis; in fact he neser
knew an) thing after tire shot was fired. Dr.
Knders and .Sheriff Dverett were immesllatcly
lelephoneil for. Dr. Kmlcrs being engjageil at
Makawan, Mr. I'.erett brought Dr. Suthff
from Wallnku, Iml when Ihc) airiseil Mr.
Newton was dead. He was al the office of
the K. K. R. Co at about 10 o'clock, appar
ently in sound mind. The testimony given
before the coroner's jury was substantially as
follows: i:. II. Ilailcy first called, said that he
reached ihe house in a few moments after, ami
found New ion in the position liefore men
tioned. Mr. W. II. Mossman testified that
M. V.. Newton has been surveyor and guard of
Ihc port of Kahutui up to l'rida), August 29,
1SS41 but on thai day he came into ihc custom
house and resigned his ixniiion, saying that he
wts not a fit person lo hold ihc place, and ac
cording lo Mr. Mossman's testimony he, New
ton, has been In constant dnad of being ar-tesii-d
by the polite, and talked in such a
queer manner that Mr. Mossnun thought he
was going craiy, and wrote a letter to Collector-General
Allen to thai effect. His mind
seemed lo be on opium, and Ivcatise lie h-id
nol succeeded in capturing some he was worried
for (car people would think he was in the ring,
and didTloi want 10 capture it, and for about
ten days it had troubled him dreadfully, and
resulted in his taking his own life. His wife
also testified to alout the same thing; but as
his mind was all right on other matters they,
Mr. Mossnnn and Mr. Newton, tried to con
vince him that it wis imaginary. The day lc
fore his death he told Mr. Mossman thai it was
nol opium that troubled him now, it was the
Grind Army of the Republic. He said the
post in Honolulu wanted him tn join; but he
told them he had lost his papers. The post
then volunteered to procure duplicates and had
written on to Washington and the authorilius
had written back saying he wasa deserter. He
slid it was nol so. He had left his regiment
on account of sickness; but was no deserter.
All lhee things went to show lhat he was
craiy at times. The jury composed of Messrs.
Plate, Schovcll, Taylor, Hantnn, Lowrie and
McGitTen rendered a verdict lhat M. K. New
ton came to his death from a pistol shot fired
by his own hand while in a state of temjiorary
insanity. He was a native ol Marlborough,
Mass., 41 ) cars of age and leaves a wife and
three small children. He was a very quiet
gentlemanly man, much respected by all the
people of Kahului. The funeral took place on
the 4th instant; his remains were buried at

The always hospitable home of Ucv. Alex
ander Mackintosh was the scene of much
innocent conviviality Thursday evening. The
ladies of the Strangers' Friend Society, of
which Mrs. Mackintosh is, and has always
been, rtircclreis, met tlltrc during the after
noon to transact the regular business of the
quarterly meeting. Several new members
joined and many arrears of dues were settled.
In the evening at tea many gentlemen
joined Ihe ladies. After tea music alternated
with conversation until aliout half past ten a
delightful evening, to the enjoyment of which
Rev. and Mrs. Mackintosh, Mr. and Mrs.
Thomas Drown, Mr. and .Miss Von Holt con
tributed those powers of entertaining for
which each has deserves! social celebrity.
" 1 remember," said a lady present, in
answer lo a reporters question, "when the
office of dircctrc-s was no sinecure. Miss
Alice Brown was eighteen when the position
was made, and at that time il required system
atic attention, as the directress had to lay nut
and apottion our work.. There were fevr
dressmakers, or even sewing women, in lhos
day s ; and part of the society's revenue came
from the making and mending of garments.
I remember tliat we used to make quite a
little sum by darning gentlemen's hose. All
thai Is changed now. We collect and disburse
money. Hut we have no mure public sewing
days and generally pay for having such woik
done." The office of diiectiess it now a

1xiking abroad tn the prospects of the
markets for our produce there are faint indi
cations thai we have seen the lowest figures
for wgars. The trade circular of Williams,
Dlmond A. Co. er Maripewi is valuable as
showing Ihe condition of stocks in the several
sugar markets of the woild, the comparative
increase of the same and increased con
sumption. Il is i be observed, how-evct, thai
a decline In rice has occulted, owing lo local
conditions of the miikcl, though il is Impel
this is but tempor.-u). Wc can see no good
reason why Hawaiian rice, lhat grades superior
lo China or Palna, should not command a
higher figure Instead of being tpioled ( or Ji
a cent per pound lower.
The attention of shipping houses has been
occupied for the week in the somewhat fiec
foreign arrivals, cmbiacing assorted tnerchaji

there have been some delays, though the W.

Willct ,1 Hamlin, of New- Vork, report as
follows: "An improvement is certainly going
on in ihc statistical pisition of sugar, in which
prices should participate sooner or later,
looking ahead to supplies for Ihe United
Stales for the next twelve months, the rcjxms

less from l'hilipines, 25,000 tons less from
British West Indies, .:o,ooo tons less from
Frcnch-fWesl Indies, directed to France by
their new tariff. At present these are only
possible deficiencies which, if realized, would
require, by our Increasing consumption, 10 be
met by largely increased importations of beet
root sugar, making thus a new outlet for the
surplus crop of Germany during the next
twelvemonths, but not necessarily improving
prices to any great extent."
London exchanges of August 15th-, report
landings in U. K. have been about same as de
liveries. Stocks are 60,000 tons more, and
the quantity afloat is aliout 20,000 tons less than
Uicu : Since our last circular the price of
rice has fallen to ? Mz Co davs. The cause is
chiefly attributed lo recent arrivals and for
ced sales by one or two houses.

"Of all races of an old civilization, and par
ticularly all Oriental races, the Japanese are
Ihe most receptive. Their recent history has
shown this most strikingly. The Chinese, the
Malay, the Hindoo carries with him wherever
he goes something of the atmosphere of the
country from which he came. Il is far less so
with the Japanese. He assimilates many of
the sices, more of the virtues and all of the
assimilative thought of the nation he may
visit. Then as Mr. Gibson very truly said,
three years ago the Japanese are a cognate
race. They are more likely lo cross well with
Ilawaiians than any race we know. The half
Chinese is generally a healthier, more robust
and more stable man than the half-white. I le
combines ihe generosity and activity of the
Hawaiian with the plojtling frugality of the
Chinese, ami the combination has resulted in
some of the v cry best plantation laborers now
on the islands. The half Japanese ought to
be a still better combination. The trouble Is,
of course, that there are nol enough unmarried
Hawaiian women of mairiageable age and un
tainted blood to make intermarriages likely,
on any extensive scale, and marriageable
Japanese jwomenare not likely lobe brought
certainly not, at f.rst." The foregoing is
the opinion of a gentleman thoroughly conver
sant with Japanese life.
