against its ue considerable ir.-;u.lice existed
during me ur. year or two. In it- Kile, tne
mill company had to contend against large im
portations both from California and Ioton, and
notwithstanding the fact that it was produced at
much lens cost and offered at a much lower
figure than imported flour, the Hock accumula
A high p rice was paid fvr wheat, during the
first two yean, and most of the crop wjw p ur
chased at fr jdi t'vo to three cents pr pund, ac-
Cording to quality. This Stimulated the TTisJuc-
tion of the grain hc-yond the ability (,f the com
pany to di-p-ose of the flour, and the price of
wheat receded in the following years to Ijc. and
still later to lie. per pound. He-id-s the une
qual competition which the mill company
had to cont-nd with in introducing the first Ha
waiian flour in the market, other drawbacks and
discouragements were met. It was found next
to imp-ible to exclude weavils from the grain
( before b- ing ground, or from the fl mr after
ward.-'. Th facilities f.r getting the wheat down
from Kahului were then prr cornpire'd with
later year-, and frecjut-ntly large quantities were
ruinel by the rain and tln-s-.- ins.,-ctsi l-f,re it
could lie got to the mill. In one iriftance we

quired to !o k-p t on hand ft-n fr eight and ten

months lef lie disp-oscl of. These and numerous
other discouragements, which no p rudence could
have entirely obviated at that time, involved the
Mill Co. largely !n debt, and at the end of thn.-c
years its liabilities amounted to $36,000. The
partners ficing responsible for the debts incurred,
wisely concluded to stop at once, without incur
ring further risks, sell off their stock and close up
the enterprise as best they could. This t-xik

the first comp any ix.ld its building and machinery

; We have not at hand the figures to show the
j amount of wheat purchased during the first three

I amount of money paid out for grain was, owing

with, well as an op-ening home market, for
the demand for domestic flour had been steadily
increasing each year, till in loo, it had m arly
detrr.yed the imp.rtation i f Haxall and fia'lego
from Bton, and larg.-ly reduced that from
California. Under tb-se favorable circumstances
1 the prospects ap pa-ared encouraging.
Th new company has probably had as good
matang:.-ment as any similar enterprise culd
have, and during the first two or three years, th"
stockholders reo-ived hamis.iii dividends. The

The I.nle Fire.
' Ma. Editor: When I arrived at the fire ca the
evenin; of the 2l'th, tne scene was frightful. It was
the general opinion that the fire would make a clean
: sweep, and destroy the most of the city. My atten
; tion wrs early directed to a lot of shanties mauka from
Caranave's stone sti.re, aud the Caranave cotttgA oa
the east, ail directly in the way tin I clo?e to the fire.
I immediately askei gentlemen preent if there was
no wy to pull duwn these bu;!d:ng, they shook their
heals and said, "No rrder had teen given." These
buildings stool for ha't-an-hour, and tare actually
on fire lcf..re the w.rk of te-irii;g d- wn legan.
E.-om whence the order came I know net at any
rate the person who gave it deserves groat credit.
Provi lentially, as soe.n as they were torn down the
wind luliei and shifted, and they might have teen
saved. But who could have foreseen that ?
It is true, as stated in the Polynesian cf !at week,
that all orders should emanate from the Chief Eu-
gineer. I did rot see the Chief Engineer during the
evening, aud if he is not able to superintend the
whole rar.ge cf the fire, shall any man of common
sense hold back his ban 1 to save a few hundred
dollars when the whole city is threatened, because
toe Chief Engineer is busy at some other part, and
ha neglected a part cf his duty ?
When the crisis comes, the salvation cr destruction
cf the city wiil depend on the promptness or want cf
it with which woe Jea buildings in the way of the fire
wiil be tern down. I have two hooks (and water ia ,
the bargain) in my yard for the purpose of tearing
down my own wooden t uil lings in case of fire, aud if
I should not be present, the man who woul 1 give the
order to tear them dswn first, when the yn.'lic L-oi
require if, I would thank most. Yours.

' cote etiicrsed bv three cf the shareholders, n tc
: half of the ompany. without which en b-rsement
! the riicney ecu' 1 net have been pro-cured. It will be
fvr yvu. gcn:!eu.ea, to tike into your consideration
the case i f these endorsers, and to relieve them from
' any ilahility further than their pre pcrtior.a! shares
! of what may new te l.:e cn their notes. Ia endors
ing tbit note, they acted n-.-t f r their own private
aivactage, lat fr that cf the corrpacy whose prcs
. reritv was incompatible with the continuance of Mr.
; Weston's contract. If the money had tot bem bor
rowed, you wtulf have had to raise it by a sub-
scriptioa pro ra'.o. By the extinction cf Mr. Wes
' ton's contract, the company had already teen bene"
1 fited to the extent of S-.leS on their cperatio-ns of
last year. L'nder the circumstances aforesaid, the
i comrany is virtually diss lved, and it appears to rre
i that, after settling its aJiirs, only a formal resolution
' to that effect, remains to be passed,
j Although the shareholders of the company have
i 1 :st the whole of their capital stock, and although
! the creditors will lose part cf theirs, yet it is salis
I tcry to re2rct that while the company existed, its op-
cratiens have been productive i f much public good.
I The agent will read to you a statement, from which
1 you will see that during the five years of the com-
pany's ex:stence. it has ground f.S'.eJ bushe's of
' wheat, i f which 73,347 were from Maui alone, and
that theto-aipany's sales, during the same period,
i ha 1 amour.tc-d tj S 1 o5, "''''.!. This amount has re
! mainel in the country, iu place cf going abroad.
It has increased the sale cf goods by our merchants
! fo p.erhaps an equal amount, and benefited the
1 King's treasury to the extent cf perhaps S7,7'X) or
I It is, therefore, clear that a Flour Mill Co. is a
' necessity b:th f.r the cultivati rs (-f whea', particu
larly on M i'ii, for the merchauts, and for the gov.
I ernment. Where a'l are interested, all should assist.
; Although I I se 35i) as a holder cf S5 shares,
(b-csides my propwirtioaatc share ef the S4 Xw") w hich I
! have already referred to,) I am willing to subscribe
; S10W towards the formation of a new company;
j another shareholder is willing to subscrii? SoOO,
an 1 I hope so many m..re will fullow the example, as
j that a new Flour Mill and a new Bikery may be
j erected with the least pi-sslble delay.
Fur the sake cf e- oo:,nj and sitfy to the city,
: I myself incline fo a new mil! t le wctked ly wa
. ter power, and situ itei Cot ia, but somewhere close
' to the city. Bat if ihe general opinion should be
', ia favor of steam jxiwer, I will equally subscribe the
si ne sum. provided the new mill le not situated on
the wharf, close to the shipp ing, and government
I ati 1 merchants warehouses, but at a distance to
leeward say ou the point cf land on which the new
prisi n staL-ds.
That you ia iy judge i f the necessity that existed
! of buying up Mr. West- n's contract, I may mention,
that under that contract, during the '21, 3 1, and 4th
i years, he received from the com. p iny, S-o.l 13 'JO
cents, (including So7i for power tor the machinery,
during the latter year,) while the total sales made
by the compiny during those 3 yeirs, amcunte l to
100,'. Is t5 cents. Since buying up his contract,
, the comji-itiy it ive manufactured its own flour, at a
cost of only 5,7-3 for the last year.

Executive Committee for their services during the

Governor Kekuauaoa, who attendisj upon the occasion
with a whole troupi of men furnished with buckets.

i had the misfortune to lose by death their Secretary,
' the Rev. Dr. Armstrong, who was the main promoter
I of its organization, and who was ever most laudably
zealous in everything tending to the welfare of the

i thii mission of high confidence Summoned to the
1 Fifth-Avenue h.itel, he was intr. du.-ed to an arart
meut where he found a youth in his shirt and irou
vers. M. Vattt prepared to wait tranquilly for his
; iiiu.-trious client, m t fancying that it w.is the Prince
i himself who was standing b'-fore hU eyes. It appears
that the Prince asked him it tie was rea iy to tegin
in order to make h:ru aware of his error. L-.r l Ren
frew then engaged the artist ia Conversation. He
had heard of the word shamit-j, and eipre.-sei a cu
riosity to try it. The hour, huwever, not permitting
an immediate un let taking of so grave aa op eration,
, it was a ij..urne l to Sun 1 ty.
On Sitid.y eveuing, accordingly, M. Vatnt entered

he perf.rms this delicate operati.ti f s'l.amp.lng.

The Iiuprndins: Cri-i-. j
Mr. Editor: Durii g the past week. I have hal;
a dream, which I jullish at the request of some of j
my friends. I cau assure you it was not produced by j
eaiing too much poi .'.nd fish, but probably by havir.g I
the mind i ter sturTel with the Budget. j
Before retiring to rest, I viewed over in my mind's j
eve the future desolation cf these islands, produced j
by the suicidal policy cf the present Ministry, bat. I
atthesime time, recollecting that "whilst there is j
life there is hope," my mind s ought for a rescue until i
bo-dame wrapt in the arms of Morphea. I am not j
suprst:;:ojs, and there is an old adage, that dreams ,
often go ly the rule contrary. In my experience, I
and no d. ubt often in the experience cf others. I have j
foucd s me dreams to have been realized. We may j
hear a warning voice ia the visions cf the night, and i
in olden times there may have teen scoSers at tne
blowing cf a ram's horn.' t'.;t scofErjg did not prevent
the walls cf Jericho from falling down.
To resume I dreamt that I was located (in a very
pleasant situation, with all that heart coull wish) on
a main road, the principal thoroughfare of the plae.
ani surrounded by a number of clever, enterrrisin?, .
money-making men. By some cause or other the;

upwards of two hundred yards. This accident put a i
, stop to the traffic on the road, but no effort was made !
to draw off the water, and there appeared no prospect !
c f it drying up because cf its depth. We soon lost!
our business, and one nnd another commenced to take j
their departure, until their empty stores and dweil- ;
ings were left for me to contemplate I hal made j
up my mmd, in spite of the desolation around me, :
patiently to remain until the fioed dried up, and ;
thought l should be well repaid. At last, after years j
of patience, the happy event arrived. The dry land

this road, for a new one in a distant part had been
' opened, which secured all to itself, and I found my
self left alone, beggared by my patience.
Sporlt in Hilo.
Mr. Epitor : On New Yes r's day, the somewhat
quiet town of Hilo, or rather a few of its citizens,
were called on to witness a very spirited race the
following is not far from a correct account cf it :
Between the hours of 12 and 1, two gentlemen, hale
: and hearty, made arrangements to run a foot race,
for the purpose cf developing their muscles prior to
joining the " Turnverein Club ; and be it known
that one of the aforesaid gentlemen was from Hono- ,
lu'u. a city I still bet on, when overstocked with spa- j
rii-us money, and being a trim built, le.ardless fel- .
low, I concluded to go my bottom dollar on him ; j
nnd having made the assertion, a man rushed up to j
me and inquired of the s:ze of my pile, tbinkinz he '
miitiit perhaps I? up for a trade. I said two bits,
whereupon he said. I will see you if I don't stny
but a Mill."?." I j'ist sunk my paw into my poeKet
and hauled out the spondulix, determined to dwell
with him until he mildewed, if I did not make a red. i
Myself and opponent ling the only ones interested, '
constituted ourselves judges of the race at the word
' git," they sTuck cut, my man leading off. Icmll .
contain myself no longer, so I gave vent to niv- p.ent- ;
up pi. clinks, by cheerinj ; which highly incensed my '
opponent, who tsai 1 if I did not brinz my nose and
chin in closer proximity, he would clean me out. 1 i
then asked the gentlemen his weight, he said about a
ton an l a half, which figures prompted n.e to ac- j
cep.f his arolngy, for I am always willing to be f.-r- j
giving if I do any 'inn a wrcne. After a hotly c n- '
tested race of five mlnu'es, my man passed the win- i
nine post about two inches ahead. Never did I more j
willingly extend my hand, and said I'd put it in there j
if it ossifies, f.r vcu have been the making of me. '
Ju-t at that time the gates of heaven opened nnd we
were driven into a
neighboring house, where we
The C'rutrlery A;ain.
Mr. Editor : In your last, you call on the Pres
ident cf the Cemetery to come out with a statement
cf the affairs of the association, and say such
a-iire.' referring to the management. Possibly, this
Community expect the Trustees, in virture of the
honor of having a seat at the Board, wiil not only
tax ihemselves with the management, but their j
pockets with ail the expense to make the grounds
beautiful, or to keep them in order, and ready to
owners of lots
seeing they have by a moderate purchase sum, ac
quired property there, expect us to fence in their
i lots, or plant trees around the.n or open aud keep
clear of weeds the avenues, that they may visit their
lost kindred without detriment from the wet grass,
or keep up the fence that the cemetery may not be
come a common, or in fact the everything necessary
to a cemetery, withcut asking theru to tax them
selves to meet the current expenses. How many
residents in this town, toe., feel no responsibility to
' even buy a lot, and thus help the concern, and yet
i wliea the time arrives, expect us to furnish them
with burial lots ?
Mr. Editor, the Trustees are men willing enough
to discharge their duties acceptably to the public
but they are not willing to War the burden of the
expense. At some e ther time the public shalf know
just how much they have contributed to the cemetery
irt years past, together with the amount of yearly
income the Trustees are restricted to in their ope
rations. A Trtstke.
Ma. EniTort, Sin : It is high time there should
be a check to the favoritism practised in procuring
sup plies for the Oahu Prison, and other kindred in
stitutions in this Kingdom. The mnius opera nli at
present in use, proves there is " sjmething rotten in
the state of Denmark," and I trut you will advo
cate a new system say to invite public competition
by settle 1 tenders. I am sure it will be a great
saving to the government, and give the Tax payers
au equal chance to furnish the supplier required."
Yours respectfully, A Tax Payer.
P. S. I have heard of Goods supplied at a price
that I would have gladly furnished at 3CJ per cent,
less than is charged, and of equal quality.
