The Reformatory School.
Oar article urnn t!.c Kef nantory SoIlxjI, in
the U-ue of the 2:t!i ult., ; written un.ler t! e i
imjrcps'un that the original Act of l 'A, irtitu- j
tin tire School, was siiil in furt-e, whereas we
have tince ascertaine-l that it waa refvalci in
1?70, and euhstitute-l !y another. The new Act,
while it is in re eoiuyrehen-ive in its w.,riinp;
than was the it, i. et euh.-Lmtiaihy the same
in iU provi.-ioi , omitting, Imvtever, the J rojofi
tion es rested in the Otti Seethm .." the nld Act,
that the School was to become $eli-su rx.rting. :
The hope of arming at any such healthy condi-
tiua of things is evidently abandoned alter bix ,
years of trial, and the present Act provides for
the eetabliehment t f other 44 Indufctrial and Re- ;
forma tory Schools in any part of the Kingdom,
where the same shall be deemed necessary, and
when funds shall be available by LegUhitive up- j
nropriation fur that object." That the establish-!,
inent in several other parts of the Kingdom of
Schools of this character would be extremely -
det-irable now, will not be denied, but the con- ;
summation of that end is not among the probabili- j
ties in the present BUtte of the finances and under
the present Ministry, whose benevolence towards
the nation takes the form of providing hotels, j
rather than school-houses, for the people. I
We have been informed from an official source, j
that the statement that some of the boys belong
ing to the Reformatory School had been sent to a
plantation on Maui, is correct. They were stout
young men, eighteen years of age or thereabouts,
for whom the officers of the Board of Education
had been unable to obtain suitable situations as
apprentices in the city. Their characters and
general conduct is said to have been such that
c- ... , . , . i 1
their presence and influence in the School was an -
n't 4vl. I
iinnrv lo the vounrer inmates, lhey went to the
J J o
plantation of their own free consent, under terms
and on conditions deemed by the officers of the
Roard as particularly satisfactory. They are to
be lodged apart, and kept as far as possible from
associating with the common hands employed on
the plantation, and be given every opportunity
and encouragement to learn and advance, in the
employments of the sugar-house. It is a well
known fact, and explainable by the ordinary
rules which govern cause and effect, that the
moral atmosphere about a sugar plantation is
never of the purest. The particular one, however,
to which these native waifs have been sent, has
the reputation of being one of the best governed
in this respect, and the manager is said to bear
the perhaps anomalous character of being a strict
and hard worker and at the same time a popular
man with the natives. He can however be both,
if he thoroughly understands the Hawaiian char
acter. Under all the circumstances, perhaps the
disposition which has been made of these particu
lar bovs is the best. Rut we contend that the.
rrrnr. idrw nP a national Reformatory School
properly carried out, would be where the boy
could be classified, and taught some useful trade !
... ... . t. t
j'or occupation in the fx'iiool itseii, anu not ue j
sent to plantations for the reason that they were ;
bad characters, or that the management had I
nothing for them to do. The proposed end,
their reformation, is not likely to be accomplished
by such a course. Consequently the School, to
become effective for real good, must bo re-modeled
upon a broader basis than it possesses at
The writer of the following communication on
the Reformatory School will observe that we, no
more than himself, join in any 44 senseless clamor
for its abolition." Rut we distrust any policy in
its future management that looks to facilitating
the placing of the boys on plantations, as a
general practice. And unless such a policy is
carefully guarded against, wc repeat that the
School may become, in the future, but 44 a
nursery for plantation hands:"
Mu. Editor: As one of the public institutions of j
the country, designed and adapted to be of great j
service to the good morals of the community, I, for i
oue, should very much regret to have a clamor " j
succeed iu ," its abolition." Such a childish
clamor" as you allude to iu your remarks on
this subject iu the .Semi-Weekly of the 2Mb. is not ,
founded in any reason whatever. The School tat i
doino- great good, and promises to do much more.
It isan honor to its founders, and its design is
creditable to those who instituted it, and brought
it into existence. And as it is now administered,
I see no reason to abandon it, or to cripple its use
fulness by a senseless " clamor " for iis " abolition."
But in connection with it, there are certainly
grave questions to be met, and a system to be
devised, which require not " clamor." but calm
deliberation and wise decision. As the institution
lills up, and its inmates become older, it is quite
apparent that some disposition should be made of
its older inmates. They cannot be supported in
unproductive idleness until they are all of age.
This would not be for their own good ; nor do the
public w ish to be so taxed for their support.
It seems to me quite proper and desirable that
as fast as they arrive at a proper age, they should
be apprenticed to useful trades, for a sufficient
term of years to acquire a knowledge of their
business, and long enough to compensate their
employers for the time and trouble of their instruc
tion. This has been the practice. I am aware, to some
extent, already ; but the objection to it, in many
cases, is. that mastiT mechanics have no place lor
such bovs. out ol woiking hours. A home for
them, when not at work, is a desideratum. Could
this want be provided for. there is little doubt that
suitable places could be found for all, as they
arrive at a suitable age. And if any ot them
proved inapt, or incompetent to learn a mechanical
trade, and were only capable of ordinary farm or
plantation labm-. I do not see w hy they should not
be apprenticed to that. Not. perhaps, to be turned
in with all sorts of coolies, or even native adults,
without oversight or care : but to considerate and
conscientious employers, who would regard it a
duty to look after thetn. and teach them, in a dif
fere'nt manner from common employed laborers.
Anil over them all the Government should have a
Maternal oversight : seeing that tbey are not abused
i or ill treated : and also, that they do ttcFrduty too.
I It seems to me. Mr. Editor, that there is no ne
! cessitv for " abolishing " an institution ot great
promi'se, because it has not yet bad snflicient prac
' ir-il I'viierience to adapt its practice to all emer-
! cencies that may arise. And ii it snouui uappen
I that some of the pupils of the School should turn
j out to be nntit for other employments, and should
: be apprenticed to planters. I do not perceive that
j it need be called "but a nursery for plantation
' hands." That is not its object ; but to reclaim the
j class of vicious youth, who knew not proper
! parental guardians'tup. The apprenticing them to
planters is. and ought to be, lor the few only, who
! do not show a readiness for employment's requiting
j more abilities. Plantation labor is greatly needed ;
' and like agricultural or farm labor in all civil. zed
, countries, requires less skill than mechanical pur
; suits. In ilself.it is not degrading, or disreputa
! ble. And I have little doubt, that if some who
: raise such a '-clamor " about it. would engage in
' it. it would be better for themselves, and for the
country. , , . -
In regard to the School. I have no doubt er its
; ri... hone it will not be - abolished.

of this city may be seen two horses each with one

stumps of which they go hobbling about. Ia al
most any other country besides this, they would be

New Barber Shop. We notice that our friend
Howard has taken the premises lately occupied by
Wm. Humphreys, on Merchant street, tnd opened a
saloon, where he intends to practically illustrate the
principles of the art tonsorhil in all its branches.
The siloon is conveniently located, and we recom
mend Mr. Howard to the hirsute public.
Raix Storm. At about ten o'clock last night, a
veritable rain storm commenced over this city, ac
companied with thunder and lightning such as is
seldom experienced here. Our rain guage is out
of order, but our devil declares that the fall was
several feel where he stays. The storm doubtless
extends'all over the windward sides of the group.
New Firm. Mr. Samuel G. Wilder, the principal',
of the new firm of W ilder Co., dealers in building
materials, received the calls uul congratulations ot t
his numerous friends and acquaintances at luncti ,
Monday forenoon. Mr. Wilder is also agent for
the New York Mutual Life Iusurance Compauy, and
for various iuter-island packets, besides the steamer
h'ilaueu. We wish the new firm every success,
w hich we are confident it will deserve.
' The Streets. A correspondent complains pretty
sharply of the condition of some pats of Beretania
Street, especially between Nuuanu Street and Smith's
' Bridge, as it is called, and wants to know why the
! Road Supervisor does not attend to it. We our
! selves cau bear testimony to the discomforts of walk

many boles and nuges to oe met wuu. ic ioaua
of broken stone, overlaid with dirt and theu tho
roughly wetted a few times would be desirable.
j Goon Work Some of the plantations in the Ililo
j district are turning out large yields of sugar from
; the cane they are now grinding. At Kaiwiki, as we
I are informed, a portion of the due fell iu on Satur
, day the JCd ult , when some volunteers went to work
after 12 o'clock ou Sunday night, aud by Tuesday
j morning had everything iu working order again.
On that day, 4G.0U0 gallons of juice were boiled,
j one gallon producing li pounds of first, second, and
j third sugars. Mr. E. II. Hitchcock is the energetic
j manager at Kaiwiki.
Goou Shooting. Our friend R twson 44 took a
turn around " last Monday among the ducks, and
returned at eveuing with some thirty-two, besides
plover aud other game. The plover season is about
over, as this is the month in which they take their
departure for the northwest coast of America. They
well repay the trouble of shooting, beiug very fat
and so are the ducks, as wo know from personal ex
perience, ltawsou knows just where to look for
them, and his double-barreled breech-loader pretty
much always brings down whatever it is pointed at.
The Theatre. The performance last Monday
evening at the Theatre by Madame iuret and Mr.
Le lloy. assisted by Frank Medina, was a very pleas
iug one. 4A Domestic Conjugal Lesson" was well
played, conveying a trite moral that was well put by
Mr. Le Hoy. ihe vexed question, " wnicu snau i
marry 7 was satisiactoriiy setuci, anu ine suuteuce
heartily enjoyed the many funny hits of the even
ing. To-night an elegant drawing-room entertain
ment is promised, under the patrouuge of the oflicers
of the men-of-war now here. We advise our readers
to go if they would enjoy a pleasant evening's enter
tainment. Good Templars Ball. The ball on Tuesday
night last, given at Buffum's Hall by Honolulu
Lodge, No. 6, I. O. G. T., was really a brilliant
affair. Some two hundred couples enjoyed the dance
and social intercourse until past midnight. Dancing
in the tropics to be comfortable should be carried on
in well-veutilated rooms, otnerwise it oecomes a la
borious kind of pleasure. Buffum's Hall would be
better suited to the purpose were the ceiling removed
from overhead. We noticed as an annoyance
that during brisk dancing the dust could be seen in
clouds, and felt and tasted, as the frequent coughing
among the guests gave proof. Aside from this
drawback, the affair was a decided success, and passed
oil' very pleasantly.
The 44 Raising" asd the 44 Housing." On Sat
urday afternoon last, the new flagstaff" of No. ti
Engine Company was placed in position promptly al
half-past four o'clock, as per notice. The engineer
iug of the job was by Mr. John Tibbets, of Tibbetja
&Sorenson, and the immense spar, 140 feet in
length, was raised on end and placed in position
within ten minutes from manning the tackles, with
all the precision and smoothness with which one
might have placed a walking stick on end. After
which the Hooks" housed their beautiful new
truck, just received from the makers, Hunnewell &
Co. The Government band was on the ground, and
,lU,.f,.irao,l ar.nronriate music, and the occasion was
if h n. collation iointlv given by No. li's

From Hilo. Letters to the 27th, say that the
climate has leturned to its iiurmal condition of mois
ture, and the Hilo people speak with unct'mn of
" the blessed rain." The streams were running,
and consequently so were the mills, and turning out
a plenty of sugr. An item of news comes from
Hilo, that had however been whispered here, some
week or so auo. It is to the effect that Her Excel
lency the Governess of Hawaii Ins resigned, that
Mr. Uufus A. Lyman, who has acted as Lieutenant
Governor for several years past, has been appointed
in her place, and that he is to be ma le a Noble. If
this should be the case, it is probable that Mr. Ly
man will be President of the coming Legislative As
sembly. April First. Monday last was ' All Fool" Day,"
and memories of the past were revived by the per
petration of many jokes between friend. The
custom of making fools " on the first of April is
evidently of great antiquity, and appears to have
been derived by the Romans from some of the
Eastern nations. There is a humorous Jewish
story of the origin of the custom, by which it is
said to have begun from the mistake of Noah in
-etidit'."- the dove out of the Ark before the water
had abated, on the first day ot the month among
the Hebrews, which answers to the first of April ;
and to perpetuate ti e memory of this deliverance,
it was thought proper, whoever forgot so remarka-

i 44 Serious Accident on the Bar. While tho II
! waiian bark II. If. Ifoo.i, Capt. W. Weeks, was
! being towed over the Bar on Thursday last, and
while it was comparatively smooth, an uncommonly
dead swell followed and broke over the stern of the
vessel, completely crushing the wheel-house, carry
j ing away the wheel, and instantly killing John
' Smith, a kanaka, who was in charge of it at the
j time. The sea struck with such violence as to break
! the beam under the poop-deck, and carry away a
j portion of the iron railing on the house. Capt.
j Weeks was thrown against the iron-railing with
i such force as to break and loosen the teeth of the
! left jaw, and was otherwise seriously injured. The
1 cabin boy, Stephen Townsend, a native of Honolulu,
j was thrown against the iron-railing with such force
! that a broken leg ami other serious injuries resulted.
! Smith was buried at Myrtle Grove Cemetery on tho
' 8th, and we are glad to record that Capt. Weeks and
the boy are f ist recovering from their injuries. Capt.
Weeks informs us that the damage to ine vessel is
quite extensive, and considerable repairs will be
needed. He has caused a survey to be held by com-
' petent shipmasters, who so decide, but as the main
i injury done is above the loading line in the cabin
j and upper works he has concluded to postpone
thorough repair of the bark until he can submit tho
, matter to the agents at Honolulu, the vessel being
; perfectly capable of making the trip after Borne ab
j solutely necetsary repairs have been made."
Cruelty to Animals. We are informed that the
slaughtering of bullocks at the establishment be
low the prison, is sometimes performed by the na
tives employed in the business, iu a wretchedly
unskillful and cruel manner. A scene was wit-
sod at one of the slaughter-houses there on
Sunday last, that, had we a IJergli amongst us.
would be heard of in the Courts. First, a bullock
was hauled up to Ihe ring with unnecessary and
unmentionable cruelty, and then a lot of boys tried
their hands in succession with a small ax. to stun
the animal wilh repeated blows on the head. This
having no other effect than to make the animal
bellow with pain, a man took the ax. and literally
chopped the creature's forehead with the edge un
til a blow happening to reach the brain, it fell. A
young steer which came quietly up to the rinir,
was sportively hacked by one of Ihe juvenile
butchers, first in one eye and then in the other, the
blood runninsr down iu streams, and finally was
dispatched. We do not suppose that our butchers
nr aware of this cruelty to animals that is earned
! on by their employees, and suggest that they see
! to it in the future that such Inhuman practices are
! discontinued. The easiest and best manner to kill
! a bullock, is one which parali.es it at once, wilh
j out pain the dividing of the spinal marrow with a
i knile. and tho bleeding is done immediately after,
i In this connection, we learn the manager andsome
! nf the enirilovees of the Spencer plantation. Ililo,
before the l'olice Court, on the
i charge of cruelty to animals, the parties having been
; accused of lighting fires under refractory or tired
! oxen. We are told that the manager escaped with
! a heavy lecture, and some of the employees were
! fined. -

Dear Sam : As I know you feel interested in news
from this moral town, I drop yoo a line to say that
we came very near getting a whale again the other
day, and of course there has l-een a grett deal of
excitement. The number of barrels it would have
ma le, and the price per gallon that would have been
realized, etc., etc., have all been talked over, and the
money divided or it would have been. But we
didn't catch the whale, that's all the difference. It
was Smith's boat (you know John Smith, of course),
and he says the only reason his boatsteerer didn't
strike the whale was because he didn't have anything
strong to drink, and that was because Smith didn't
have two dollars to buy a bottle of liquor with, and
the reason why he didn't have two dollars was because
! he had given them towards establishing a Good
i Templar's Lodge in Lahaina. So you sec that our
not getting that whale is all owing to the Good
: Templars No more at present from yours,

Dear Sir: In your semi-weekly issue of Tu
d iy, the 2d mst., is an article headed 44 Cruelty
Animals." Now in relation to that and on bek
if the butchers, I would respectfully ask of yo
have your informant state the cne to tho Manh
and have the parties arrwted under Chapter XX
of the I'enal Code, which is as follows :
"Whoever nhall cruelly beat, torment, or iruli.i. aj"
uiiii any horse, o. mule, or oilier annual Ix-lonylng a
id her. shall be punished ty Imprisonment at rhrd US
more lhan three inotiltis. or by Une riot exrwdlnf one h

We cheei fully give place to the above, and rep
that wc never supposed thtt the butchers wera
nizint of the jirsctices complained of. As to la
n complaint to the police authorities our infer
did not know the offending parties, only that,
were natives, and apparently employees abou
slaughter hmise. It would prevent a repKrtitW
the offense if some resrionsible parson waa .
oversee the slaughtering by natives. In nuotif
law alsive. we take tho opportunity of calling i
tion to the absurd distinction made between f t
to one's own or to another's animal. . i io.
