SATURDA Y. JUL Y 9.
SESSION OF 18TO.
Satubdat, July 2nd.
Mr. rjullips (Attorney General) in reply to the
question respecting mileage, said that it was custom
ary in civil cases to be attended to by the sheriffs ;
and on inquiring and examining into it, he finds that
the fees allowed are hardly sufficient in the country
From Mr. Kaai, that whcrea3 yesterday the Chair
man of the Judiciary Committee was changed, in
order to hasten its business, resolved that the Chair
appoint two, new members for the same, to take the
place of one who is sick, and another who is living at
Ewa. Resolution adopted and the Chair appointed
S. Kaai snd D. Kaukaha.
Mr. Kahaulelio, on leave, introduced a bill to
create a Judicial District at Kaanapali, Mani, at a
salary of 200 per annum.
From Mr. Wahine, that 5,000 be asserted in the
Appropriation Bill for a bridge at Honolii, Hilo.
Referred to the Committee on requests for internal
Mr. Boyd introduced his bill to establish distilleries
on sugar plantations. On leave the bill was read a
first time, and on motion of Mr. Hutchison (Minister
of the Interior) , was indefinitely postponed Ayes 22 ;
Mr. Pilipo, moved that the bill relating to children
frequenting saloons, be taken up for reconsideration
for an amendment, that " between the hours of sun
set and sunrise " be stricken out. Motion accepted.
Mr. Lyons said the bill had been spoiled by the
amendment of yesterday and moved it be rejected.
The bill as presented was a good one.
Mr. Hutchison (Minister of the Interior) favored
the bill as it had been presented, and did not see the
requirement of including sugar bills ; but would
support his amendment of this morning, and then
moved the other oue be stricken out.
Mr. Hitchcock spoke of the necessity of the bill
from what had come under his own observation ;
favored the views expressed by the last speaker, for
he would like even to prohibit all tea and coffee shops
from the islands, as they had a baneful influence on
the young of the land. Bill passed to be engrossed.
ORDER OF THE DAT.
The bill to repeal the law to mitigate was taken up
on its second reading. Mr. Hutchison moved it be
Mr. Lyons said if he stood up for indefinite post
ponement, he feared he might be misunderstood ;
out until it could be shown that evil increased under
its operation, we should be slow to repeal it.
Mr. Hitchcock spoke in strong terms against the
law that now stands ostensibly to mitigate the great
est evil to the country, and showed, by the informa
tion gained by the committee, that the life of this
nefarious practice is drawn from the other islands,
for out of (JG0 prostitutes registered under the Act,
only 149 were from Oahu ; and over 900 of the class
were young women from the age of 16 to 30, thus tak
ing that number out of the child bearing populatioa
of the islands. As the testimony given shows but
four births to the whole number in ten years. The
voluntary statement of the women- was that the
policemen themselves were their procurers of custom ;
and further, on questioning, they all agreed in wish
ing to have this law repealed, not that it made them
notorious, but that they wished to discontinue their
practice. He acknowledged with Mr. Lyons that
eood arose by the law to mitigate, but if only bene
fitted the flowing population. He objected to it, as
the law in Chapter 22, Section 2, of the Penal Code,
which was sufficient to send all of the 149 women to
jail for six months and make them earn an honest
livelihood, wns by virtue of the law to mitigate a
dead letter ; as in the whole time of the working of
the law only four had been convicted. Pending the
debate, the Assembly adjourned.
Tuesdat, July 6th.
Mr. Pilipo on suspension of rules, read a petition
from Honolulu that Konohiki and Government fish
eries be open to the public
Mr. Kaukaha, from the Committee on Miscellane
ous Petitions, reported in favor of the petition from
Hilo for a bridge at Honolii.
Mr. Aholo on leave, introduced his bill to regulate
the water supply of Lahaina. Bill read first and sec
ond time, and referred to a special committee.
Mr. ITalcmanu presented a petition that $500 be
inserted in tbe Appropriation Bill for a jail in Ilarua
kua. Mr. Naukana offered a resolution that the Minister
of Interior furnish the members with copies of tbe
laws passed, at the close of the session. Resolution
Mr. Harris (Minister of Foreign Affairs) on sus
pension of rules, introduced a bill to enable the
commissioners of crown lands to convey certain
parcels of real estate
A bill to declare the Penal Code, as compiled, the
law of the land was read the third time, and passed.
ORDER OF THE DAY
The Appropriation Bill in consideration of the
Committee of the House. Mr. Aholo in the Chair.
Salary of Circuit Judge of Oahu, 81.600.
Mr. Hitchcock moved the item be deferred till the
report of the Judiciary Committee be received.
Support of military 875,000.
Mr. Hitchcock moved that the report of the
Military Committee be accepted, and the item passed
Mr. Kaukaha objected to the appropriation for a
band, as he did not think we had arrived at the
proper time to warrant such an outlay.
Mr. Harris. said that the military was generally
the butt for sarcasm, and especially so from his
friend at his left, Mr. Lunalilo ; but while the sub
ject is up for consideration, he hoped they would
conquer weu on wnai tney are to vote, ur the
$75,000 asked, 810,000 is for the erection of a new
barracks ; several thousand -dollars have already
been expended towards it. It has been said that a
band is unnecessary : very well, yoa may say the
same in regard to the furnishings of even this room ;
but you must admit the good order and benefit
accruing to this place from the use of the Austrian
band, at the time misfortune drove their frigate to
our shores. Then 86,000 is for the volunteer Rifle
and Artillery Companies, which well deserve help ;
for I can well remember the origin of these Honolulu
Rifles, and the cause that necessitated it.' The
burning buildings and infuriated mob of seamen on
shore and the million dollars worth of property in
the harbor in danger are too fresh in my memory to
forget that noble band of volunteers. . -..
Mr. Kaukaha replied his remarks were not to sneer
or cast discredit upon the military, but because the
appropriations for it steadily increases. He moved
to reduce the amount for volunteer companies to
$3,000 and the band to 84,000.
Mr. Kahaulelio favored a reduction of the amount
asked for the band to 85,000.
After considerable discussion the item was finally
parsed at 875,250, as amended by Mr. Lyons. , ,
salary or fjjerit 01 uovernor or uahn, s tuu passed.
Salary of Clerk of Governor of Maui, 8800.
Amended by Mr. Kahaulelio to 81,600, and passed
after considerable discussion at that figure. Assem
bly adjourned. .......
Wednesday July Cth.
Mr. Kamakau, from the Judiciary Committee,
recommended tabling the petition from "Waialua for
8S00 for a court house for that place ; also the peti
tion from Makawao that the jury term of court be
held at Wailuku ; also the petition from the consta
bles for an increase of pay.
Mr. Smith (Minister of Finance) moved that the
salary of the clerk of the Governor of Mani be taken
up for a reconsideration in Committee of the Whole.
ORDERS OP THE DAT. ,
The BUI to amend the Statute regulating the sale
of awa, was read tbe third time and passed.
: The bill to amend an Act repealing Chapter 10 of
the Civil Code and inserting certain new sections to
regulate the Bureau of Public Instruction, was read
the third time and passed.
Bill to provide a permanent settlement on Mr. C.
Kanaina was read, and on motion indefinitely post
Bill to ascertain and affix the mileage of the king
dom was then read the third time, and on motion of
Mr. Hutchison (Minister of the Interior) action was
deferred till to-morrow.
Bill to amend Sections 483 and 484 of the Civil
Code regulating the property tax on personal and
real estate (increasing the tax to one-half per cent)
was then read the third time. Mr. S. M. Kamakau
moved it be indefinitely postponed.
Mr. Lyons spoke in favor of the bill as the only one
that was proportionate and just to alL
. Mr. Wahine, of Hilo, opposed the bill in strong
Mr. Hutchison (Minister of the Interior) considered
the member of Hilo's views against the bill very
mackv trat- of place when his petitions for money ap-1
propriation8 amounted to over S 100,005. As for
himself, he would even favor its being doubled yet.
Mr. Hitchcock favored the passage of the bill, and
could - not agree with the remarks of his fellow
After considerable further debate the motion for
indefinite postponement was lost, and bill passed,
ayes 27 nays 8.
Bill to repeal the law to mitigate &c, was next m
order, but on motion was deferred till Saturday.
The House weut into Committee of the Whole on
the Appropriation Bill.
The item for the clerk of the Governor of Maui waa
first in order. Mr. Hutchison (Minister of the Inte
rior) moved the item be placed at $800 as in the
- Mr. Lunalilo eupported the motion, though he was
very much surprised yesterday that the .Minister of
the Interior should vote for it.
Mr. Hutchison (Minister of the Interior) said he
did so to move tor reconsideration.
Mr. S. M. Kamakau favored the item at S1.C00.
Mr. Lyons hoped that no more time will be wasted
on the item of salary of any one man. and so would
move it be placed at 1,000.
After considerable further discussion, Mr. Harris
(Minister of Foreign Affairs) moved the committee
rise, but the motion was lost, when Mr. Lunalilo
again took up the time of the House.
The motion of Mr. Lyons to fix the salary at
$1,000, was finally adopted, and after three hours
spent on this item, the Assembly adjourned.
On Thursday of last week, June 80th in the
burial place set apart in the Catholic Cemetery, on
Krng street, for the lamented dead of the Donau's
crew who died at this port, th ere was discovered a
most remarkable occurrence.
One of the cast iron monuments erected by the
graves within the iron railing was found broken
entirely off about one third of the way down from
the top, and the iron cross on the top was broken off.
I went to the Cemetery about 3 P. M., on the 30th,
to place a tomb railing close by the Donau's. My
attention was first called to the broken monument by
the person who has charge of the Cemetery. She
said that she first saw the break about 8 o'clock that
morning. It rained heavy early in the morning and
continued to rain until about half past six, or about
three quarters of an hour after sunrise.
The ground for several feet around the monument
is lately made, and when I saw it in the afternoon,
after the rain, was well soaked with water and bore
no trace of any footsteps made after the shower in
the morning. The piece broken from the monument
weighed about 120 pounds and the cross about 18
pounds. They both lay to the north of the base
exactly in range, the heavier piece about one foot
from the base, and the cross about ten feet farther
otf. The top was standing upright as it stood on the
monument, and the cross lay on the side. The
weight of the top in falling had sunk it about three
inches into the earth, and there it stood ; the cross
had probably been thrown with some force, and first
struck about seven feet from the base, and had
rottited to the distance of about three feet, on its
arms and ends, indenting the earth about one and a
half inches at each point of contact, and fell on its
side to the west.
The remaining part of the monument was split
down the panel for the distance of about ten inches,
and gaped open at the top about one quarter of an
inch. The masonry around the base appeared slightly .
disturbed since the ruin. There was not the slightest
trace of any mark on any part of the broken monu
ment, except on the top about six inches from the
foot of the cross on the south side, and a bruise on
the end of the south arm of the cross. The fracture
of the iron was perfectly bright, without a sign of rain
since the break. The earth disturbed by the broken
pieces was freshly done, and showed no sign of rain
drops after it was disturbed by the falling of the iron.
Tbe above are the principal facts in the case as
found by myself and three of my men who were with
me at the time. What conclusions do we draw from
the above facts ?
1. The breaking was done after the ruin, and
before 8 in the morning. That is between 6:45 and
8 A. M., at a time when there are persons continually
passing in King street close to the monument, and in
the broad shine of day.
2. No human agency could have done the breaking
without leaving some trace of footsteps or of hammer
8. It follows (unless we ascribe it to the agency of
the ancient gentleman at whom Dr. Luther threw his
ink horn) that it must have been from natural
causes, the explanation of which I will give accord
ing to my view of the case.
The slab broken was made by casting a heavy rim
around an iron panel. It was about two feet wide
and three feet high, with a semicircular top, on the
summit of which stood the cross. The rim was, say
2x3 inches, and the panel about J of an inch thick.
In cooling at the foundry, the panel being thinnest
would cool first and become rigid before the rim was
done shrinking. The rim in cooling around the '
panel would be subjected to a severe tensile strain.
The rain of the morning reduced the temperature of
the iron several degrees lower than it had been
before, and the hot sun coming out after the rain,
and shining square on the iron would heat the thin
panel and expand it much sooner than the rim,
bringing the tensile strain beyond the cohesive power,
and the rim snapped off at the south side first. The
sudden shock and spring of the top snapped off the
cross, and as the top raised and new to the north,
the cross fell south until it struck the rim with tbe
end of the south arm, when it was carried over with
the top and thrown several feet off in the same
direction as found. The first starting force being on
the south edge threw up that side first, and lifting
the whole top sent it flying with sufficient force to
give it one turn and drop it on the earth where found.
And in proof that the top had been in rotation at
the time it struck the earth ; the earth was leveled
down on the north side so as to stand clear of the
iron about two inches at the surface of the ground,
showing that the iron had tilted a little to the north
and settled back again.
' The -rent in the solid panel gaping open at the top
shows the immense strain exerted on the iron. It
would require a strain of 200,000 pounds to bend
the solid iron as that was bent. The fracture surface
was about 86 inches, which at 18,000 pounds to the
inch (which is the tensile strength of good cast
iron), gives 32 tons as the force to break the mon
I never knew but one occurrence similar. A large
cog-wheel at the Brewer Plantation, bursted when it
was being used with an additional strain. It went
off with a stnart report, and the parts separated
about hair an inch, and could not be brought

in the early days of car wheels, where for many
years the proper form could not be obtained to equalize
the forces. -1 am aware that I stand in the minority
ou this subject, but facts are stubborn things, and
we must all believe as our judgments are convinced.

Auatbcr Letter fraui Lanol.
Palawai, Lanai, June 24th 1870.
Mb. Editor : As a good deal has been said lately
about Mr. Gibson's emigration company, and what
happened to them on Lanai, we who were among them,
desire to give our experience of farming apqn this
island. , N
We will say, in tbe first place, that we expected to
do big things, when we left San Francisco, in planting
sugar cane in the islands ; but most of us got out of
heart before reaching land on account of the sufferings
of the voyage. We had a dreadful time on board tbe
Comet, and surely no one who means to tell the truth
could say a word of praise about that horrible voy
age. When we got to Honolulu we heard a good
many stories against Lanai, but we were bound to
see for ourselves. We had another unlucky voyage
of three days on the schooner Kinatt to Manele, Mr.
Gibson's landing. This is not an inviting looking
place, unless a man fancies rocks and sand and a
blistering hot sun.; but we were bound for bead
quarters, and so we kept on up the country, some on
foot and some on horses. There were horses for the
women to ride, but both married men got bones to
ride up, and also ReiHy and McCurrmn- and Fred the
Dutchman. When we got on the top of the hill, the
valley was a beautiful sight, so level and round and
green, and the soil under our feet seemed tbe richest
we ever had seen. Every man of us felt at first sight
that big crops of any thing ought to grow in such
land, and there was plenty of it, and stock to work
with. But the bother was to get to work, because
there were so many bosses, the proprietor did not want
to be overseer, and besides, the company wanted to
form into ever so many little companies. Every
party got their lands staked out ; but a good deal of
time was taken up in getting plows, harness, and
food np from the beach, and in digging places for
water. If we had put in a crop of corn, Irish pota
toes or other produce when we first arrived, about
the middle of March, we are confident that we would
now be gathering a harvest. Tbe soil was very
mellow and easy to work, when we first arrived ; but
the right time to put in seed passed off, and after a
while the ground got very bud and too stiS for a
span of horses to break, considering that feed was so
short for working animals, and not much water.
After a while all eave off trying to break up the land
in the big valley and as we too were determined to J
try the island fairly, we looked for some higher and
nioUter lands and found a good location on the foot
hills of Palawai district. Here we found pretty
Bhrubery and a pleasant place, as we can hear the
singing of the birds every morning. Wo built a
bouse, and had hard work drawing the lumber up
with horses from the beach about two miles off. This
made us to be late in getting in corn and potatoes.
We planted corn on the 8d of April, and it is now
over breast high. The Irhsh potatoes have a good
share of top and every promise of good crop, with a
little more rain ; but thia growth has come on with
out rain sufficient to wet the ground deeper than one
inch. , It is plain to be seen that if we got an ordi
nary good rain we must make a good crop.. It is as
tonishing to see potatoes and corn growing so well
after so long a drought. But this proves the rich
ness of the soil. It is a soil that keeps moist a long
time. We have planted coffee plants that arc doing
well, and also benns, onions and radishes ; they are
all doing well, and are fit for use. w e have always
been able to cet a moderate supply f sweet mountain
water for ourselves and horses, although we cannot
use water as in a well watered country. 1 ct every
bodv has all that is neoessarv. If some more money
was spent in cisterns and resevoirs there would be
plenty. The cattle and sheep are fat, the mutton is
excellent, and we e-et as much of it as we want. A e
have a milch cow for our use, and plenty of poultry.
We miss garden vegetables, but we can make out
with rations of rice. We find plenty of ti root so good
to chew, and that makes choice beer, and there is as
good a wild tea in abundanoe as we would wish to
drink. We intend to give this place a fair trial which
no one could ffive in a week or month. It ought to
be a eood farming country. We see the old stalks of
sugar cane lying around where it has been growing
before, and we are determined to give this island a
full and fair trial. Yours resp.'Jtfully,
Jons V. Reillt.
Honolulu, July 8, 1870.
Editor or Advertiser : Our names were signed
rather hastily to an account written by Mr. Perkins,
and published in the Advertiser, on the 11th of June
last, as witnesses to all the alleged facts, stated by
Mr. Perkins. We wish to say now that we were in
company with Mr. Perkins from San Francisco to
this port, and went in company with him and others
to work on Mr. Gibson's lands on Lanai, and so we can speak
of what hapienel on the voyage, and about affairs on Lanai,
during our stay there j but we know nothing about what hap
pened when Mr. l'erkins was acting as shepherd for Mr. Gib.
son, as we never saw the sheep ranch named Kaa, and were
not on I.auai, but in Honolulu at the time of tbe eveula aa
stated. We have been much disappointed in trying to plant
on Lanai, but we must say that Mr. Gibson has pk-my of land
and stock upon it, ami we have no doubt If he had got good
rains as usual he and his company of emigrants would have
done well. Tuoxta Johnson,
NOTES OF THE -WEEK.
Police Court. This forum has of late been rather
bare of cases, going to show that our citizens, on the
whole are neither so vicious or litigious ns has been
sometimes represented. On Thursday, however, a
Chinaman in the employ of Mr. J. 11. Wood, of the
Nuuanu valley plantation, brought an action against
Mr. Wood for assault and battery, by whipping him
with a cowhide. A counter action was brought by
Mr. W. against the Chinaman for assault upon one
of the members of his family, under most aggravated
circumstances, which was the provocation for the
whipping administered. Mr. W. was fined oue dollar
and costs, and the Chinaman 8100 and costs the
extreme penalty of the law which he, of course,
will have to work out in durauce vile, say about 13
months. On the same day, a pig case came up be
tween two natives, and occupied several hours. Tbe
value of the property in dispute was small, but the
principle enunciated by the Magistrate in his decision
is worth recording. The pig had reperdly tres
passed on the taro patch of a poor old kanaka, and
after losing all patience at the frequent destruction
of his little property, and repeated warnings to the
owner of the beast, the old fellow catching it in the
act, attacked and cut it with an 00. Owner brings an
action for ten dollars damages. The decision was
that the old man shall pay 82.60 damages for cutting
piggy, on condition that tbe latter was turned over
to him. And the Magistrate took occasion to say
that any owner of swine who allowed them to go
loose to trespass on other people's premises, would get
no sympathy in that Court. It is a remarkable fact
that nobody appeared in the Court for drunkenness
on the morning of July Cth.
Firemen's Elections. Owing to the fact that Mr,
Hughes. Foreman of No. 1, and Mr. Boyd, of No. 4
had been chosen respectively as 1st and 2nd Assistant
Engineers of the Fire Department, the companies,
loth as they were to part with the leaders who had
for years so efficiently led their organizations and
brought them to their present state of discipline and
readiness for work in all respects were compelled to
elect new officers. No. 4, essentially a native Hawai.
tan Comnanr. elected the Hon. V. Kalakaua as
Foreman, ard Mr. J. Kauai as Assistant No.
chose Mr. Thomas K. Clark as Foreman, and Mr.
Frank W. Dunn as Assistant. The elections took
place on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings of the
present week, and on each occasion there was a gen
erous spread of good things, with songs and toasts,
but to the good name of our firemen be it said, there
was no disorder what cannot always be said of fire
men's meetings in other countries. We here repeat
what we have before stated, that in point of efficiency
and zeal, our Fire Department cannot be leaten by
that of any other place of its size.
Last evening Mr. II. I. Nolte was elected Fore
man of Hook and Ladder Company, in place of Mr.
C. Njpencer, recently chosen as Chief Engineer.-
1Xanai Aoain. We insert another communication
about Lanai, this time from two farmers in the em.
ploy of Mr. Gibson. Their statements are appar
ently worthy of credit, as they are practical farmers.
We also learn from Mr. G. that on the 2d, 3d and 4tli
inst.. eopious rains fell on that island. The water
stood in ponds in the vallies ; and a stream eight feet
wide, accumulated from different ravines poured into
Palawai valley for several days. Parties on the island,
state in letters received per Active, that the fall of
rain on Lanai daring the past week, equals the
heaviest Kona that has fallen in several years. Capt
Makee's plantation and the island of Kahoolawe
bave also enjoyed a copious fall of rain the present
Silk Worm Eggs. California is engaging quite
extensively in growing silk worm eggs for the Euro
pean market, where of late years the eggs raised
bave failed to batch. One man in Nevada has
100,000 worms this year, and has produced 500
ounces of eggs, worth on an average 87 per ounce.
It pays when they bring only 81-50 per ounce. This is
a business which could be profitably engaged in here,
and we hope to see some one commence it.
That Miracle. We insert a communication from
Mr. Torbert about the destruction of the iron slab in
the Catholic burial ground, giving his theory. How
he can assume that it occurred in broad day light,
when no one saw it done, does not appear clear to us.
If it was the act of a midnight vandal, as is fair to
presume, he will thank Mr. T. for the labor of prepar
ing the argument, and us for the space which it occupies-
A Distinguished Good Templar. Emile Ollivier,
the French Premier, drinks no intoxicating liquor of
any kind, not even wines. In his youth, he nearly
killed himself by drinking too much absinthe, and
has made np bis mind to taste not and touch not any
intoxicating beverage. With such a man at the belm
of state, the liberties of France are secure.
Bennett's Own, in its aocount of Che doings on tho
fourth, says " the editor of this paper kept open
boose for all Good Templars and other Americans
a singular statement. We like the institution of
Good Templars, but we don't believe that the infer
ence held oat that they , are composed of Americans
only, will hold good.

The Laws of Life says : More quarrels arise be
tween brothers, between sisters, between hired girls,
between school girls, between clerks in stores, between
apprentices, between hired men, between husband
and wives, owing to electrical changes through which
their nervous systems go by lodging together night
after night under tbe same bedclothes, ,than Ij any
other disturbing cause. There is nothing that will
so derange the nervous system f a person who u
eliminativc in nervous force, as to lie all night in bed
with another person who is absorbent in nervous
force. The absorber will go to sleep and rest ail
night while the eliminator will be tumbling and toss
ing, restless and nervous, ami wake np in the morn
ing fretful, peevbh, fault-fluding and discouraged.
No two persons, no. matter who they are, should
habitually sleep togetlicr. One will thrive and the
other will lose. This is the law ; and in married lifo
it is defied almost universally.
psr The Goon Templars celebrated the Fourth

about 150 members Doing present. Wo may add
that tho order comprises two lodges In this citv
