are the main points of the complaint : Plaintiff

on the Clh ot April. 1SC3; has two children by a
tormer marriage; has no personal property or
means of living : for one year after marriage de
fendant lived with her, but since then has almost
entirely deserted her ; defendant sent her and her
children to live on a farm four miles from Salt
Lake City, where she and Ler only companion, her
mother, have to do menial work for ber support,
dressing coarsely and faring badly ; defendant vis
ited her occasionally and never remained over
half aa hour ; treated her with contempt and scorn,
and exacted earnings ot the farm ; in the Call ci
1&72. by direction of defendant. plaintirT took tip
her residence in isalt Lake City, which she has
been compelled to leave from want of support and
I ear of violence from defendant; has called upon
defendant frequently for maintenance and been
refused ; is in feeble health and under medical
treatment ; has been obliged to tell ber furniture
to meet current expenses. She sues for divorce on
account of neglect and bad treatment. She states
that her huband has an income of 40.000 a

at any period during the Quhh times of the whal

and sad it is to acknowledge is that th native
can ami do procure spirits with aljuut the same
facility as do Ibrcignere. What 'pretentious
hypocrisy " then for the Ua-ttte to make such &
dolorous outcry alout free rum," when souj
one Klerly inquires whether our plantations
could profitably and safely dietill their putt .lug
and refuse into a merchantable article!
While thus exjiosing the inconbiit-nt md ti-
diculous attitude of the Gazttle in iisfran ticrueh

contrary, we are not sure but that to allow the

have to contend. Not that the manrufacturc of
rum is, jtr se, an evil, but becauM: we should
seriously doubt thc j;rmanency or efficiency of
any legal barriers tliat can be erected to prevent
its consumption, more or less, by our own people.

could aceomj.lir-h, and tle trouble they might oc
casion the police and tl? courts, would be some
tiling fearful t contemplate. Uut to those ob
jections it laay lie answvred that the granting of
licenses could le at thc discretion of a Minister,
so that no unworthy jerson would be likely to ob
tain one ; and further, that every drop of the rum
manufactured would pass at once from the still
into the custody and keeping of the government
excise officer. There is indeed much that can be
said on lotli sidts of the question. The planters
are the jerson.s mainly and particularly interested
in its decision, and it is for them to say whether
it is for their interest, on thc whole, that distilla
tion outside of Honolulu shall be legalized.
lij the Act of riOth of December, 18G4, the
Minister of the Interior is authorized to grant
one or more licenses for the establishment of a
distillery or distilleries in this city, the price of a
license being lixed at fifty dollars per annum, for
live years. It has been estimated, from reliable
data, that a distilling apparatus capable of con
verting from 7 0 to 1000 gallons of molasses per
hour, complete with boiler, steam and kind
punijH, will cost in Europe, delivered on board
ship, a!ut $ ,400.
l!ut, as we have already remarked, it is not
cheap sentimentality that is needed in consider
ing this subject, but the logic of figures. There
is a deal of common sense in the observation of
our correspondent of last week to the effect that
there would attach no more moral depravity to a
cask of Hawaiian made rum than to one imjorted
from abroad and placed in the Custom House to
lie withdrawn for consumption more especially
when the former shall be intended for export,
and is jrevented from doing any mischief here
Whatever may come of this discussion eventually,
it would le interesting to lie informed, by any
one conversant with thc fact, as to what propor
tion of spirits can be manufactured to every
hundred tons of sugar produced, and something
like an arproximatim of the cost of manufactur
ing. The estimate given aNivc of the cost of a
distilling apparatus from Europe is, it will be
observed, calculated upon a very largo scale.
A FORMER SUGGESTION REVIVED.
Some months ago. the. suggestion was made
that the governmental, agricultural and commer
cial coudition and the policy pursued in the isl
and colonics f Mauritius and Jamaica, would
prove a valuable subject of study for us at these
islands, in view of the fact that our climate, soil
and principal productions are nearly similar to
theirs. At that time also, a plan wae. hinted at
of sending a tjeeial commissioner on behalf of
our agricultural and business interests to visit
those islands jarticularly, and other joints inci
dentally which may present similar features of
interest, lor the j'urpose of observing and com
piling for information and jxssible ajplication
here, any facts and statistics having a bearing on
the important subjects of labor, and of the culti
vation and manufacture of sugar, jrimarily,
and as a matter of course any other product
which might lie made available here. It was also
considered that such commissioner should be duly
accredited by this government to the governments
of tluse countries which it was intended that he
should visit, as by such means only would he be
aflbrded the fullest and lairest facilities in tuakim
the desired inquiries and investigations.
Such, then, was the j.lan as suggested about
a year ago, and which, in its main features, was
adjudged bv some of our j.rincijal business men
by whom it was di!-cused as feasible and advisa
ble. Uut various eau.-es have oj-cratcl to prevent
its practical adojitioii and execution. One was
undoubtedly owing to our not having at hand the
man for the mission, who, tith-d in all respects
hiiiv elf to perform the labor, would be able to in-
spire the fi:l Ict confidence in ti. .- who sent him.

AFRICA ANDTHE CHINESE.
A new cry has lieen raised by those theorists
who arrogate to themselves the right to dispose
of countries -and nations. In a recent number of
the New York Fut we find an article headed
"Africa for the Chinese." in which the editor
sjieaks ajj j.rovingly of an idea jiut forward by
Mr. Frar.cis ialton in the London Tinas, to
colonize Kastcrn Africa with tlie Chinese, ("n
queetion ably, the day has arrived when of the
Chines: it may be said, as of the children of
Israel, there is no part of the world where you
cannot find them. They have flocked to Califor
nia in biicIi numbers aa to have become a dru" in
the market, and it is one of the problems of the
day in the CJolden .State, how to get rid of them
a problem not easily solved. The wants of
the Chinaman are few, and the small wages with
which he is content, has made him an unwelcome
rival to the Anglo-Saxon laborer, liut be is
there, and like the African, can't be got rid of,
and must sink or swim with the country. In
San Francisco, however, aa we all know, the feel
ing against the " Heathen Chinee " has arrived
at such a degree of bitterness that there is no
telling how it will end. And still they come
It was only recently that we read of over twenty
etcamcrs ready in the Chinese waters to bring
over 20,000 Chinamen to California.
Mr. (Jalton's remedy for Chinese superabun
dance, in which thc New York Post agrees, is to
colonize the Eastern Coast of Africa with settle
ments of these plodding civilizers, just as was
done to establish Liberia, on the West Coast, by
eending thither liberated blacks Irom tlie United
States. Africa, says (ialton, must then either be
civilized or extinguished by Chinese, m the Dar
winian theory of " natural selection." What
the Cliincsc may think of this plan of the " out
side barbarians," docs not apparently enter into
any ono's consideration. Thc stolid but ctinninjr
Celestial would undoubtedly develop the won
droviB riches of Africa with his plodding indus
try, but he would hardly stand to light with the
warlike blacks. We read of Uit.OlMl Ashantees
threatenjiif the Enrdish settlements ;ind frienillxr
tri5ea arounj Capc Coast Castle. Thev arc sav
ages, ami in thc last war the English had with
them, (Jovernor McCarty was killed. He leing
a brave man, the Ashantees made a drinking cup
out of Us skull. Liberia is a missionary aa well
as a commercial community, but it has not done
much in the way of converting the natives. It
would really seem as though this must jirimarily
lc done in the Spanish and Mahomedan style-
with thc sword. After the last peace was made
by thc English with this powerful tribe, commis
sioners were sent to Kumassie, their capital, to
negotiate a treaty. During that and other visits
of Englishmen to that country, the soil was re
ported to be found so rich in gold that not a
shower of lain fell but laid bare any quantity of
gold nuggets. A few of the improved shells and
other war weapons of the present day, in the
fight which thc English colonists have apparently
got on their hands, will soon scatter thc Ashan
tees, and then there will be a rush to the new
African diggings, and civilization will follow.
Then, indeed, John Chinaman might easily be
pcrsu:ulcd to colonize Africa quite as numerously
as desired, but when there is fighting to be done,
lie must )e counted out.
Then? is plainly a great future in store for
Africa. TJie indications are, that through the
mysterious workings ot Providence by human
means, the. time i,s rapidly approaching when
" Ethiopia hall stretch tyrth her hands to od."
Livingstone ami Sir Samuel JJaker in the Centre,
the Khcdivt? of Egypt in the North, and Uritish
Colonization in thc South, are the means being
used towarsls the accomplishment of the sure

currency, s lmjortant to tlie community at
large and concerning which we expressed our
views last v.eek, the Uazttte of this week timidly

remains ti be seen." Had our contemporary

The Water Supply.
Mr. Li'iTon The subject cf an alun lor.t supply
cf frc-sh an 1 pure water luring the pirehiri heat
an l drought of our summer nunth?, is one which it
is quite s ifo to dbcuss wlth- ut the riik of cuVn ling
the prejudices of any ict r order, and therefore I
propose, with your j-cnaiiei-ju. to iavite -utile atten
tion t some irajxli:iierit3 which now staul in the
way of that abundance cf pure water li ILn :!u'.u
which I believe to be eo;i!y attainnlle.
That a great increase in rainfall as well as its re
tention in a saturated soil fur a long period of time,
at the natural results of abundant shade ty means
of forest and other trees, have long been all tut uni
versally conceded and adoptel a? well-established
propositions, and their converse is equally well dem
onstrated ty the experiences of all who reside in lo
calities where forests once abounded, but which are
now no longer in existence. Those residents of
Honolulu who recollect as I do. the once dense forest
which f.-rmerly covered with its grateful shade the
upper mauka portion cf Nuuanu Valley, and the
almost e nstantly flowing stream which ran down the
valley during the summer now see with regret that
stream generally dried up for several months of the
dry season. The excellent pipe water supply to the
city has been of incalculable value; but the stringent
notices which in every early summer emanate from
the energetic bead of that department, clearly indi
cate the necessity of consumers going on short allow
ance at the very time when an abundant supply is so
most required for domestic use and personal comfort.
' This diminution of our water supply in summer is
but too plainly traceable to the conversion of all the
land at the head of the valley, which was formerly
covered by a dense forest, into a cattle ranch, under
a lease, unfortunately granted ty His late Iajesty
Kamehameha IV. to the late Mr. Hillebraud, who
speedily stocked it with a milking herd of many
hundreds, which soon demolished all the foliage and
shade and gradually but steadily reduced the land to
the naked condition which it presents at present
thereby not only greatly diminishing the quantity of
rain all over the valley, but also drying up by rapid
evaporation all the denuded surface of the soil which
had previously been the reservoir and store for that
absorbed moisture which had supplied the stream
during the summer, and which was retained in the
soil by the shade of the forest.
But unfortunately this is only a part cf the mis
chief resulting from that calamitous lease, which has
entailed o.t thc people of Honolulu the necessity of
using water polluted by these cattle who resort to the
stream (which is the main source of supply to the
reservoir, and which runs through the ranch) for the
purpose cf slaking their thirst, but who at the same
time generally seek to cool their hides by plunging
bodily into and wallowing through it in unrestrained
luxury, while depositing too often a liberal supply of
both solid and fluid excrement, which becomes thor
oughly mixed with the water on its course to the
reservoir where it is at length deposited, and whence
it finds its way into our water monkeys and tea pots.
How very placid and enduring a community wc
must be to have so long endured so disgusting a state
of affairs !
Nothing short cf the total abrogation cf that lease
can remedy this crying evil ; and it is 6aid that its
present owner is willing to surrender it, but at a
price which is considered quite exorbitant. It is also
understood that the government desire its surrender.
but hesitate to pay for it the price demanded ; but
considering the liberal, if not lavish sums which
have lately been expended on some public works
which were not certainly of such urgent necessity as
the abatement cf the horrible nuisance above referred
to, it is hardly worth while to chaffer or higgle over the
amount necessary to accomplish so very desirable a
purpose. And moreover, the water works cf Hono
lulu have been the most lucrative of government
speculations, and the appropriation cf even a few
extra thousands cf dollars ought hardly to be allowed
to stand in thc way of the accomplishment of so im
portant an object, even if a special loan should be
required for the purpose.
It seems to me to be the duty cf the people to come
forward in aid cf the government by a free expres
sion of opinion as to the propriety cf inducing the
Legislature to appropriate an adequate amount for
the purchase. I hope to see a. move made in that
There is however an important preliminary ques
turn which must be adjusted before any effectual
move can be made in the matter, viz: how far the
proprietor of the soil would consent to and guar
antee the ptriunnfhl restoration of the forest in
case of the surrender ot the lease ; for unless this
were tirst arranged it would be worse than idle to
negotiate a surrender of it.
Let me hope that I have succeeded in awakening
public attention lo ;i state of things which may be
unknown to some among us. and to which others
have wilfully shut their eyes, despairing pel haps
any remedy for that which even in a sanitary point
of view ought to be remedied : for il is now uni
versallv admitted that Honolulu has ceased to be
so remarkably free Irom those diseases wliich
"flesh is heir to." as it once was before its inhabi
tants were compelled to use the horribly jmlluted
water of late years, and wliich would to an ordi
nary observer be set down as a clear case of
'i(Tiyr oc." How the faculty view it. I am not
prepared to say.
Mr. Editor: An article by "J. O. C." in the
Commercial Advertiser of August ICtli, moves
those, familiar with former utterances of that writer,
to a disposition to smile. With alleged solicitude for
the welfare cf the white population he urges that
nothing further be said about the cession of Pearl
River, lest thereby the antipathies of the natives be
aroused against the whites ; a solicitude that is sin
gular after his participation with Mr. Rhodes in the
incendiary meeting in the Kaumakapili Church, and
after his ingenious appeals through the LTuohoa to
the natives, to unite in watchful effort against the
policy cf the planters. If any persons should re
ceive the palm for having done the most to awaken a
blind, unreasonable hostility cf the natives towards
the " haoles," it would not be difficult to designate
He proceeds to advise that no further effort be
made for the cession of a naval station to the United
States ; because a SL Louis newspaper has proposed
that the American refineries unite in a common
policy, and because their union may be effected, and
because they may make effort to reduce the tariffs on
the lower grades of sugar ; and because they may
succeed in such an effort. One is reminded of the
cry cf the opponents of the American Union during
the rebellion, " Let the difficulties of the nation
alone, and they will cease." The writer does not
stop to consider, that the mere reduction of the
American tariffs would continue our difficulty from
competition with the cheap European beet sugars
and the cheap sugars of Manila and of other coun
tries ; nor that a union cf the refineries to cheapen
the lower grades cf sugar, by the removal cf tariffs
on them alone, would place the Hawaiian planters in
their power to receive only the lowest price they
might choose to give for the lower grades of sugar,
while the higher grades could not be profitably sold
ty us ; nor that cur effort for a reciprocity treaty is
not opposition to such an effort of refineries to re
move tariffs. Hut his anxiety, thus evinced, and
still further expressed through thi native pres, to

in the reciprocity treaty, were silenced. Why, ii"
there were net a sugar plantation in the slightest de

that woul 1 accrue to us fn m closer relations with
the country that is yet to belt this ocean with her
lines of enterprise and philanthropy, should nuke

States, have often eireu mrav land for schools, asy
lums, manufactories and palatial residences, to lure
capital and enterprise, and have thus rien to great
importance ; and sonic villages have ensured their
permanent insignificance by blindly rejecting such
measures. Which shall we do? lfwui -.
A Vessel for the Lepers.
Mr. Editor We are tol l that the Uoard cf Health
are determine! to do all in their power to isolate the
lepers. It is truly hard when we see family ties torn
asunder, but it is ri2ht to isolate, and we submit.
But I am tuld that ther ia a schooner, which is em
ployed to carry lepers to the settlement, but which
also carries other passengers at the same time, and
that after discharging a load of lepers, she sometimes
takes on board a load of healthy persons to bring to
Honolulu. Now I ask, is this isolation; and is there
no danger cf those healthy persons becoming diseased
from sleeping in the same places occupied by lepers
on board that schooner just as much danger cf it as
in pursuing the same practice on shore? There
should be a vessel for the transportation cf lepers,
and fur that purpose solely. Moloku.

M.u i, August 21, 1873.
Dear Sie There are a set cf men who travel on
the JiTilauea who, let loose from the decencies cf life
in the metropolis, indulge in their native habits n
board the steamer that make their society a little
worse than that cf the lepers, whom necessity now
and then compels us to come iu contact with. These
amateur hoodlums make the cabin cf the Kihiuen
still more unbearable than its natural closeness is, by
drinking and smoking.
For the sake of the ladies who are compelled to
endure the aggravation induced by the fumes cf poor
rum and nasty cigars, I would suggest that such
characters be compelled to go with the other cattle,
on deck. Yours, &c, A Victim.
A Terminus at Last.
The towns on the shores of Puget Sound have
been bidding high for the terminus of the Northern
Pacific Uailioad. ft has finally been located at the
little village of Tacoma. at the head of Commence
ment Pay, about ?A miles northeast of Olympia.
The company first secured 2.000 acres of land along
the shore cf the town site, and then accepted the
subsidies which the town otfeied. The cite for a
city is said to be a good one in the matter of soil,
drainage, and a deep and landlocked harbor.
The terminus ol the Canada Pacific, we believe,
has been fixed at llsquimalt, near the city of Vic
toria, lloth Ibiluth and Tacoma, the Kastein and
Western termini of the Northern Pacific, are cities
of the future. There has been a raging land spec
ulation at Duluth, and probably tUe same thing will
occur at Tacoma. Uut it will be years before the
western will figure prominently as a city. N. '.
