i j G-xiijJtftAii-. Th road through the swamp at j
Jiirrfaea, on the windivard side of the i.land, is fast
approaching comletiou. It was formerly but nine j
j feet wide, and was fotin 1 too narrow to 1-e of use to ,
j the carts or carriages now coming into more general j
use iu the outer districts. The road has been widened
: to twenty-lbur feet,-giving ample room for team's to
j pass each other. Ths roads through the Waikane

attention of the Itoad Supervisor's gang, and when '
I completed, the drive around the i.land will not be
j one of adventured and accidents. The only remain-
ing obstacle ol any EKiincni to a pleasant, easy car
riage ride around the i.-land is the Pali road, nnd on
account of the large expenditure necessary to over
come the difajulties it will probably not be attempted
for some years, unless the Reciprocity Treaty or some
other of the schemes talked of should become a matter
of fact, when we shou'd expect to see many improve

A IlticxTr Jcmpeil We have been told a story of
I the doings of a Hawaiiau which has no equal iu our

j establi.hment on Hawaii and received an advance of
! thirty dollars. A short time after that he turned up
in this city, and shipped to work on a sugar planto-
tion on Kauai, again receiving an advance of thirty
dollars. Ilecoiuiiig restive and perhaps short of
funds, he managed i.gain to reach this city, and
bhiped to work on n. sugar plantation on Hawaii,
again receiving thirty dollars advance. Ilaviug met
with such success, he was again tempted to return
here, and shipped to -work ou a plantation on this
, island, receiving the same advance. His funds fall
I ing low, he left this employ, and shipped on another
j plantation on this island for the same advance wages,
J and still again escaped and shipped in another dis
trict on this island, having received altogether one

Mn. Editor : Living as I do in the backwoods
where mails reach us only occasionally, owing to
our distance from the Post Office, it was only lately
that in perusing the P. C. .Ucertiser of January 2,
I came acrcss a piece headed Independent Thoughts
on Annexation," and signed " Honolulu." Now
" Honolulu is not the only one who has " inde-
pendent " thoughts on this subject. So when I
j chu-l the paragraph in which he speaks of foreign-
j crs on the Islands, other than Americans, as resisting
I the i n tlic t ion of the enormous American war tax,
j and asks whether it is to be thrust on this ignorant
' people, to " reveal itself like Samson's shorn hair,"
I came to the conclusion that the " independence "
. was in the peculiarity of his train of ideas, and per
haps aljo the independent " source from whence
they were derived. To the best of my knowledge and
belief there never has been any resistance made by
any one on these Islands, native or foreign, to any
taxes imposed by Government, and it does not seem
, that any will resist, or have cause or reason to resist,
. any taxes iiaeiy 10 ue imposes in case oi annexation
,-i ,...? , r
to any foreign government.
Probably however, " Honolulu" is a person of
large property, which would be a sufficient reason for
talking iu an alarmed and general manner of "enor
mous American war-taxes," as it is evident that for
such large projH?rty holders taxes would be heavily
increased by any such move as annexation. But for
the common natives of the country, the mass of the
people, I take the liberty of asserting that annexation
would lie a financial beuefit to them. I say financial,
as I nm only writing of the money view of the ques
tion at present, aud not of the effects that such a
move might have upon the moral aud social life of the
people. In the United States, taxes are levied prin-
I cipally upon property, and upon incomes, upon the
j latter there being a tax of 5 per cent, on nil in excess
; of St'IOOO. Nearly all State taxes are levied upon
j property, and arc of course in a nearly direct ratio to
the amount which it costs to sustain the State Gov
! ernment. There is also a poll-tax ; in California,
where taxes are as heavy us anywhere in the United
States, the poll-tax is two dollars
That is to 6ay, a
working man in that State, unless he owns property,
has to pay but 2 of direct taxes during the year,
and may be earning his three dollars a day steadily
all the time. Here a laborer has $3 to pay at the
least ; which, at the rate of wages on the plantations,
of S8. per month, is over 5 per cent, of his earnings.
In the United States they do not tax a man's wages
or his income, except upon the excess of what it costs
, . t livc comfortilWy. 1Icre a man with 500o
income need not pay any more taxes than the poorest
laborer in the Hawaiian Kingdom.
But sir, it amuses me to see men whose taxes
would be quadrupled by a change, pat the poor na
tive on the back, and tell him that this change
which would in all probability ameliorate his coudi-
tiwn 1UI(, at any ne not lnakc it any worsewould
le sure death to him, thus hiding his own fears under
a well simulated air of aloha to his fellow country
man of darker shade, and persuading the kanaka to
put trust in xnXi ;f i,e wishes to be saved from untold
The foreign population of the islands, and in fact
all, either native or foreign, who are in the enjoyment
of what is commonly called a support, say an in
come of S10UO, and those who hold any amount of
property, are in fact the lightest taxed people in the
world, while the peasantry, the laborers, the bone
I and sinew of the nation, are enormously taxed ; and
j I happen to know that there are influential men,
; holding high position, who agree with me in this re
! sjeet jierfectly. Still it is only the same as in nearly
i every monarchical government ; the many are taxed
for the Kucfit of the tew ; and it is hard to say
whether the evil will ever be remedied under the
existing form of government. There are many evils
which can only be remedied by a popular form of
government, one emanating from the people, and it
jes not seem likely that such an one will ever come
to bless this nation, until in the course or human
events the glorious old stars and stripes wave over us.
The whole subiect of annexation is one which is
lp1y interesting to all lovers of the Hawaiian race,

Pr. Kowell and several other physicians, in San
Francisco, have been engaged recently in making
po--t nmrti-m examinations of the bodies of patients
who died of continent small-pox at the pest-house.
In some of them they found that the pustules
which usually appear on the surface had invaded
various internal organs and the enveloping mem
branes, and were distinctly developed there in
stead of being oa the outer skin. The brain and
some of its integuments were also found similarly
affected in some of the subjects. It is quite com
mon for pustules to make their appearance on the
fauces, tonsils, root of the mouth ami inside of the
cheeks, and it is not unusual for them t be de
veloped in other internal organs and membranes
when the producing disorder is of the malignant
continent type, or that described by Seydauham as
the ntr'iol't ul;ie or - black small-pox," a type of
the disease which seems to have given a peculiar
character to the pr -ent epidemic.

held between his fingers a small lemon and after

cent death, after an iilnc-s of short duration, of Mr. '
Horace Mann, Curator of llotany. The feeling of the ;
SvK-itty was expivsst-l by Mr. William T. Urighaut,
who spoke as fallows :
It is sad to speak publicly of c ur private sorrows,
but hcn those sorrows touch :dl alike who reverence ,
i the good, admire the brave, rejoice over victories iu :

! edge against ignorance, or who mourn over great ef- j
; forts uncompleted, then must we lay aside all thoughts '
j ol' personal loss, and speak each with all of our com- j
nion grief. j
i The youngest officer of this Society has left us never :
to return. Were years alone the test of usefulness
; and maiditHfl, we Plight count over the few that
: Horace Mann numbered in his earthly life, regret
they were so few, and from the full-grown and ripened
lives still with us, look for his successor. Hut vainly
should we look ; where should we find in all the years
j the lest of our number couul show, a single year so
tall of hard work, conscientious, unselfish, sclt-sacn-fieing
struggle that the world might know more, aud
the cause ot science be advanced T
In his earliest youth Horace Mann drew in from his
father's careful teachings the love of Nature, which
has since been his constant joy. Often would he
softly open the dtor of his father's study, and come
silently to ins tatiier s side, waiting for the leisure
which would give him some of the marvelous stories
about the earth aud its inhabitants, which in his mind
took the place of the unrealities of fairyland so dear
to most children.
Chemistry was the delight of his boyhood, and his
father's house contained a laboratory, iu which he
spent many an hour, often to the great anxietv of his
i.iiiiii, nuuureauoi int.- usual rvsuus Ol oov ish ex-
periments with powerful re-agents. Inanimate mat-
ter did not satisfy him. and after much thought,
although opposed by most of his friends, who wished
him to receive a collegiate education, he determined
to devote himself to the study of Nature, entering
Professor Agassiz school as a student of zoology and
geology. This was at the time when the present
Museum was recently built, and the hard manual
labor of moving and arranging heavy specimens, j
wincii lie so readily undertook, seriously allected his
health. He was at this time also deeply interested in
conchology, and most especially in botany, and it was
from this latter iuterest that the companionship and
friendship commenced, which for the last four or five
years have so closely united us. When l'r. Asa Gray
was told that I was soon to visit the Hawaiian Isl
ands, he asked nie to collect the very peculiar flora of
that group, and suggested the propriety of asking
Horace Mann to accompany me. It was a short no
tice, but his friends advised him to go, and he joined
me in California. From that time, for more than a
year we were constant companions, and many a long
ride, many a weary walk, did we share. For more
than six months we kept house together in Honolulu,
and from the first dav to the last he was the same
modest, retiring, hard-working, unselfish, conscien
tious man. Thoroughly alive to all the beauties and
wonders of Nature there surrounding him, he often
wrote home that he enjoyed every moment, and often
indeed have 1 seen him iu perfect ecstasy over the
discovery of some new plaut after a hard climb up
some island precipice.
With his rich collections he returned to Cambridge,
and was soon appointed lr. Gray's assistant, and
afterwards Instructor in Botany iu Harvard College.
Besides the work of arranging the Thayer Herbarium
and constantly aiding lr. Gray in preparing material
for his classes, and revising proofs of his two botan
ical manuals, a work more than enough for a com
mon man, a work indeed that no common man could
do, he worked steadily in his spare hours, often late
into the night, on his Hawaiian collections. The
many thousand sccimens were determined and la
beled nnd partly distributed ; his " Enumeration of
Hawaiian Plants," which has given him a good botan
ical reputation, was published by the American Acad
emy of Arts and Sciences (of which he was unan
imously elected a fellow on the very evening of his
decease) ; a most complete Flora of the islands was
published in part by the Essex Institute ; several
other botanical memoirs were in hand, and you all
know that his labor here in our herbarium and in our
work as a Society, was not light.
His interest in this Society never waned. Often
on shipboard, lying on deck at night, have vrc talked
over this matter, and he was full of suggestions, many
of which have since been carried out ; others, such
as a permanent door-keeper for the Museum on ex
hibitions days, guide-books to the various collections,
and a fire-proof floor for the main story of this build
ing, will be perhaps in time. He was always present
at the Council meetings, and his advice was always
sensible and respected.
As a result of our Hawaiian explorations, five new
genera were added to the flora, one of which was ded
icated to him under the name of Hcsperom a nnia, and
has been engraved for the next part of our Memoirs,
while of new species of flowering plants, no less than
seventy-one, or niore than eleven per cent, of the en
tire phasnoganious Hawaiian flora, were discovered.
His published works, besides a number of reviews in
the American JVaturalist, were :

had considered a mere cold, compelled him most un
willingly to give up his college classes, temporarily
as wc all hoped ; but the worst form of pulmonary
complaint hail gone too far to be stopped, and although
his friends all hoped for his recovery, he passed away
peacefully on the evening of November 11th, after
some days of great pain and anguish.
Sad as it seems to us, in our blind interpretations

Judge Trovines, of .the Police Court, excludes
Chinese testimony in the case in winch it was
sought to be introduced on the strength of the
Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, put
ting his decision on the ground that the amend
ment in question refers only to citizens, and was
not intended to interfere with or abrogate any of
the rules of evidence established by the laws of
the Slates. The language of the amendment does
not justify this construction, as we understand it.
The lirst section of the amendment, after stating
who are citizens, and declaring that no State shall
make or enforce any law abridging the privileges
or immunities of citizens, concludes with these no
ble words : " Nor shall any State deprive any jer
soh not any citizen within its jurisdiction the

whose testimony is excluded relative to a matter
involving his personal safety, is a "person within
the jurisdiction of the State." though not a citizen,
and the refusal to take his testimony for what it
may be worth is a denial of "equal protection."

We copy the following from the Boston Journal
of Clirmi.stry : "The error must not prevail that!
kerosene oil of legal standard will ignite or burn
if a lamp containing it is broken. Good oil. such
as should be used in families, will extinguish flame
when brought in contract with it. Oil heated to
the usual point while burning in a lamp in the
evening, should extinguish a lighted match when
thrust into it. If the reader is using in his family
unadulterated kerosene, he may take off the cap
of the lamp, thrust in a lighted taper ; he nay
turn it out upon the floor, and apply flame; and it
will not take fire or explode. Standard kerosene,
such as the law recognizes, is prfrtly sufe. We
wish to state and re-state this fact, as it vould be
a great misfortune, especially to the poor, to have
the erroneous idea prevail that till kerosene is dan
gerous. A cheap light is too great a blessing to
be deprived of through unjust prejudice. It is
only the wretched adulterated oils, the naphtha
Hauls, that are dangerous."
