numbered Vancouver gave an easv
assent to take effect at some future
time when he had finished his ex
plorations on the north west coast.
Kauimiiilii also came aboard, verv
much pleased with the renewal of
the acquaintance and the honor
done him of visiting VVailua. He
was verv much improved over the
year before, much less shv and
awkward, much more confident of
himself. When nightfall came and

anxiety begged to go sshcre. Van
couver then squared away for Wai
mea, routtd the west side of Hie
island taking with him Pulu and
Ku two minor chiefs or Konohikis
to assist in securing the necessary
supplies at Waimea.
One of the main objects which
Vancouver had in mind in this vi
sit, was to return two Hawaiian
girls whom he had rescued at
Nootka Sound in the north west.
They were Lahaina and Kaimalu,

(Continued from pagf 1.)
The Territory of Hawaii, through
its legislature, has in the past few
years constructed armories at Ililo,
Wailuku and Lahaina. besides a
$100,000 building at Honolulu.
The construction of these armories,
the European war, the Mexican
situation and the untiring energy
of the Adjutant-General, in co-ordination
with the Governor and other
Territorial officials, have combined
to build up the present strong and
However, while we feel that we
of Hawaii have done well in the
matter of the National Guard, we
also realize that our work is by no
means completed. We boast a lare
enrollment, but this can be further
substantially increased. We realize
that men and officer must be con-1
stantly drilled and trained to the
highest point of efficiency , at which
po:nt thev must be maintained,
and in order to maintain our pre
sent standard and to materially in
crease the same, it becomes neces
sary for us to ask aid of your
Honorable Bodv, to the end that
each and every available man in
the entire Tetritory may be brought
within the National Guard organi
zation. It is possible that more build
ings will khortly be needed. These
can be taken care of by the Ter
ritorial Legislature. It is, however,
recommended that some compen
sation be allowed the membership
of the Guard tor personal funds
expended by officers, and time do
nated by both officers and men,
from their civil pursuits.
The suggestion is offered for your
consideration that the National
Guard of Hawaii be placed on a
paid status, of, say, 25$ of there
Kulars. At this rate an enlisted
man, drilling once a week, would
receive a small remuneration for
each drill night, while the officers
would be recomposed for the ex
pense incurred in the purchase of
their outfit and also receive a slight
remuneration for the time given
to the service. This would tend to
increase the desire among men em
ployees on salaries to work for
commissions and also to stimulate
the general interest in the organi
zation. It is further recommended that
the personnel o f the National
Guard be allowed the privileges of
the commissary. This will tend to
induce men of families to take an
active interest in and become mem
bers of the militia.
It is further recommended that
the Adjutant-General of the
National Guard of Hawaii be ap
pointed by the President of the
j United States, to serve at his plea
jsure, with the rank of biigadier
! general, which would assure the
Auiutant-General some degree of
permanency in his position. The
present Adjutant-General has the
endorsement of practicallythe en
tire community, and relative to his"
ability for the position I would re
fer you to Major-General Wm. H
Carter, Major A. S, Cnklin or,
in fact, any of the officers connect

Because of a severe drought in
Niihau, Vancouver felt that it was
best to leave them on Kauai, at
least in the meantime
On of the difficulties was that
thev of course had broken th'e
tabus, having continually eaten
at the same table with men. and
otherwise contravened the strict
requirements of the ancient law.
.Vancouver stipulated that this
should not be laid up against them
and that they should be received
into good society without question
He furthermore wanted to put
theni in a position of independence
so insisted on having lands and
houses for them. This was con
curred in by the local chief or ko
nohiki, but Vancouver finally in
sisted that the property should be
in his name, and that they should
be tenants of his to insure the title.
Vancouver then fitted the girls
out, as best a man under such cir
cumstances might, with everything
he thought they might need, and
