1 ;i.i ... ... t 1 ;
Had the L.hha street site been kept and 1111- j
proved, Honolulu would to-day possess a :
public garden of fifty acres, which would be an !
ornament to the place. The distance, being a :
little out of town, would have made it a most
attractive resort for recreation and health. A
new street might readily have been cut through
to Liliha from Xuuanu avenue, by extending
1 : w 1 1 . i . 1 :
either Kukm or fcchool street, thus bringing it
somewhat nearer. The original site is far better
than the present nursery, or the- proposed new j
imrchase. which is little else than a swamn.
lilvble to be overflowed every winter.
j Whichever way wo may view this nursery
business, it exhibits only mismanagement and
tick of judgment. The present garden has
thousand. Whatever the amount be, it is now-
proposed to "sell out" for whatever it will
bring perhaps 2,000 pocket the loss, and
allow some fortunate person to reap the benefit
of nine years' labor and improvements. We
know not who it is that is anxious to obtain
the garden for a fhiilding plot, but it is a site
well adapted for a princely mansion.
After the sale, it is proposed to buy the swamp
or ln)g referred to, paying $4,000 for it, and call
on the public and perhaps the Government for
six to ten thousand more to improve it. At the
end of five years what will it amount to? The

more we shall have another auction to notice,
an l another poho to comment on.
Do not mistakosadis. We are as warmly in
favor of uny measure which shall tend to beau
tify our city or render it healthy and attrac
tive to residents as any living here. Hut we
object to the mismanagement of this Society and
the sacrifice of its property, lly a lack of energy j
in its officers, and especially by their continue
ance iu office or holding over" year after year.
i until the Society became fossilized, as it were,!
the public lost interest in it, and withheld
support. Nor can any permanent change bo
expected without a change of officers. Hotatioii
in office is the true theory of all successful asso
ciations, and is the only rule practiced by other
societies of every kind. Nor can we expect a
change iu the influence, management aud stand
ing of the Agricultural Society until there is a
change in its administration, and a wide-awake
man is placed at its head.
The land which it is proposed to purchase is
the roost ineligible site that can be selected
for a narden and nursery. Some lettcr one can y
easily he obtained for the same amount of
money in proportion to its extent
If a change
is made now. it should be such an one as the j
public will approve fur all time to come one in
which they will feed that every dollar invested is
well sjent. A public garden, well located and
eatable ol ln-ing increased in extent with the
growth of the city and the liberality of its peo-
le, if rightly located, and in the hands cf men
THig-e-sing their full confidence for energy and
j public spirit, might 60on become an ornament to
the city. Hut this can never be said of the low.
miasmatic land which it is propjscd to palm on to
the Society, lias any one a mortgage on the
"swamp" to the amount of four thousand
dollars or less?
I'lio Lejirosy Hospital 011 2Iolo
knl. Two weeks ago we published a communication
from a gentleman of unquestioned veracity, re
garding the management of this establishment.
Humors bad from time to time reached us about
the neglected condition of the unfortunate
native driven to that secluded district, but not
having the facts at our command, we were unable
t speak knowingly. We have since learned that
the real state of things has not been more than
half published, and that every word of our corres-
jondent is true.
We have now another and more full statement j
furnished by a gentleman who has visited the j
leprosy station on Molokai. He informs us that 1
the number now there is 118. of whom 80 are!
males and 3S females. Besides the lepers, there
are o-t persons nut u.seaseu. vw.u uae- fco.ie- me-ie- ,
to take care of their sick friends or relations, i
These persons live with the lepers, cat and sleep
icith than, and are free at any time to go and re- j
turn aain to their homes. They assert that the j
Board of Health gave them Tierinission so to do.
There are also eleven children in the settlement,
but whether they are diseased or not, we do not
The overseer reports only 23 deaths as baving
occurred since the first lepers were sent there in J
November, 18G5, but the number is believed to j
have been mucti larger, as the total number 01 j
lepers sent there probably exceeds two hundred. ;
We quote from our corresndent :
" Ihe great majority 01 the lepers are a puiaMey

of the Hoard of Health, proposes to make a tho
rough inspection of the city of Honolulu, with a

not only proper, but highly necessary, for as the

The Hoard of Health was long ago formally and
officially introduced to the public, and judging
from the string of regulations jiublished in the

after all the blowing of trumpets the mountain's
travail came to naught, and in, the summer season
too. when nuisances are most likely to prove in
jurious to the public health. Let u see what will
be done now, in the winter season, in the way of a
