;4inong the numerous new Lilla introduced on
Saturday last, was one to repeal Jcction 480 of
the Civil Code. This means to abolish the poll
g tax altogether. Tlie Hon. gentleman who intro
duced the bill did not indicato how he proposed
to supply the deficiency in the revenue which the
this tax would cause and perhaps he
did not pause to think of it. A bill to increase

We heard an intelligent Hawaiian make the ob
eention tlie. other day, that in lus opinion the
buHincasof tlie country would bo quite as well
attended to. and certainly with more dispatch und
" " . rxao there but one Representative for
PrtSCrred A 1I1I to amend the law respecting
iTMbjriyincnt of prisoners, bas one good fca
. enre proTidins that they ehall be employed only
ontfm ptibliq rotule or other: government work.
We have' had occasion to i'peak more than onco
in heo columns, on the impropriety, to gay tlc
least, of allowing convict Ubor to come into com
petition with free labor in discharging ships, etc.
There , however, one provision in the bill that
ehould be atricken out that which provides that
the psy of prison officers shall be fixed by the
Legislature. This i unnecessary and impracti
cable, and it will lead to mischievous- results.
I.ut then the present Legislature shows a decided
proclivity to arrogato to itself all sorts of power
and Authority. This was apparent on iNituruay
and Tuesday, when the bill to prevent th Rile of
government property in Honolulu was under dis
cussion. Tlie bject aimed at, as dlatir.ctly
stated by members, was; to etop the proised rale
of the old Court House premises, advertised by
the Minister of the Interior for next month. As
to the policy of that measure at tlie present time,
there may 1 an honest difference ol opinion, but
the utter crippling of tlie hands of Ministers
a proposed, besides loading to a vast deal of in-i-onvenien-y
and positive injury to the country,
will, iTTSed in the House, amount to a vote
r want of confidence in the prudence and wisdom
r the administration, and the general public,
both Lere and abond, will bo construe it, notwith
standing that members have reputedly taken the
pnins to disavow any such intention. One member,
(ilr. Kaukaha) who, in . some respects may be
looked upon as the leader among the Representa
tives, ;made the significant declaration in the
course of debate, that if this measure fails, the
AssrnbJy might as well bo prorogued at once.
One thing Is apparent, and that is that the Rep
resentatives in the present session are aware of
their power (and are inclined to use it too) for
carrying through about any and all measures
they may agree upon in caucus. So far, tlie in
fluencd of the governmeot, or of its members in
dividually, goes for very little.
During the week, numerous petitions have been
presented from all sections of the country, pray
ing for the prohibition of all traffic in intoxicat
ing drinks. These petitions are all alike, signed
mostly by natives, and read as follows :
To tbe Honorable, the Leijialatire Aembly of the Hawai

bound, will ere pray."
In addition to thij, some SCO Chinese on this i
wj island alone, hate petitioned the Legislature,
.p asking for the suppression of the traffic in opium.
- We Icam that while this petition was being cir
culated. but one solitary Chinaman was found
who declined to sign it, the generally expressed
feeling among them being an' earnest desire that
w-mi government would put a stop (o the importation
of the drug. And when it ia remembered with

The newly proposed amendments to the Con
stitution passed in the Assembly on Wednesday,
without apparently eliciting any comment or
debate, and by a nearly unanimous vote. The
amendments to Articles 21 and 21, are to say the
least, entirely unnecessary and trivial, consisting
as they do, of the (substitution of the name of
the prevent Sovereign for that of Kamcliameha
V., in the declaration of the form of government,
and in the stipulation as to the oath of office.
Wc cay trivial, because the words His heirs
and successors," following the name of the then
reigning Sovereign, rendered the change quite
a work of nur-ererogation. This is certainly a
useless "tinkering" of that supposed-to-be
sacred instrument, the Constitution. Article 22
is also proposed to be amended (it being remem
bered that these alterations are only pTorosed at
the present session, and are to be finally acted
ujon two years hence) by confirming the crown
to His present Majesty, and failing his heirs,
then to Trince Leleiohoku. This form of succes
sion His Majesty had already declared by procla
mation immediately after his accession. Rut the
present Assembly undertakes to go farther, and,
apparently anticipating things unnecessarily,
desires to fix the succession irrevocably in two
other branches of the Royal Family. While by
no means objecting to the ptersonages indicated
for the remote f-uccession, we fail to appreciate
the policy attempted to be pursued.
A bill to prevent the spread of syphilitic and
venereal diseases, has been introduced, intended to
take the place of the present " Act to Mitigate'
etc. This is the same bill brought forward by
the late Minister of the Interior near the close of
the session of 1872, and which was then nouie
what summarily tabled. The main features of
the bill are, that it establishes a Dispensary in
this city for the treatment of persons of both
sexes, affected with the diseases named ; and any
persons, male or female, so affected, and neglect
ing to procure proper medical treatment else
where, are required to submit themselves for ex
amination and treatment ; and a failure or neglect
to obey the prescriptions of the Dispensary phy-

In the midst of a flood of petitions from all
parts of the country, praying for the prohibition
of the traffic in ardent spirits, the Hon. member
for 'orth Kona, (Mr. Kaai) brings in a bill "V
legalize distillation. As this is a bill that may
interest our plantors though we arc not aware
that any of them have ever asked for the privilege

A notable mscoirje was deliverel on Sunday

I all Pin nn.I cvil-duini? is -waetciul, it was snown
how amazing iu the aggregate is this waste of j
goods that go to make up our ternr-oral prosper- j
ity. All suffer from it indirectly. It makes the ;
human race cat their bread in tlie sweat of their !
1 brows. The euhject was well illustrated by the
! tin of slavery as it existed in the l uited States,
I which was a gigantic waster of the nation's sub-
1 ... - ... . ii a I
stance. All the industries ot lile are stui loaaeu
with the debts of its prodigal squandering.. The
tempest of human greed and passion that swept
over Wall street in New York city a few months
ago, and reaching finally in its influences really
evcry individual in the nation, was an instanco
of waste, produced by desperate phrenzy for
riches a striking instance of the waste that 6in
makes. ' To come nearer home, we were invited
to look especially at the waste caused by alco
holic drinks and of opium as they are used here
in this kingdom. This was not the highest view
to be taken of the liquor and opium questions,
but btill it is the most important, and may pre
sent itself with most force at this juncture of
affairs to those who have the law-making power
in their hands. This aspect of the subject bears
directly on the welfare of this people. The re
sources of this group of islands are enough to
make prosperous all its inhabitants. And that
this is not the case must be because there is a
waste of the Master'e goods. It needs no argu
ment to show that what is consumed here in
alcoholic drinks and opium is even something
more than a total waste. There were imported
into this kingdom last year, 23,200 gallons of
spirits, and 23,000 gallons of ales, beers, &c,
and 7,300 gallons of light wines, in all, 53,500
trallons of such drinks. The invoiced value of i
these drinks last year was about 5G,000. It
took that amount of money out of this kiogdom,
out of its solid earnings, to send abroad to pay
for these imports.' Thirteen thousand dollars
:morc were Bent abroad to pay for the opium con
Funicd here. So far as wa6te and loss are con
cerned, would it not have been better to bavA
taken all this sum and thrown it into the scat
To etop this leakage alone, would make money,
plenty here. It is giving away so much coin
without any needed or useful return. But this
is only a fraction in the estimate of the waste.
A very low estimate shows us that the eoplc of
this kingdom pay out of their earnings and ac
cumulations not less than $200,000, and most
probably considerably more than this, for driiik.
On all the islands there are probably not more
than 3,000 male foreigners, and many of thcfe
are temperance men in practice as well as princi
ple. And the figures show that a largo propor
tion of the liquor consumed here is drunk by the
Hawaiians, to whom the law forbids its sale..
To the $200,000 for drinks must be added prob
ably $75,000 expended for opium, and no incon-

swells the 6um total to not far from $300,000,
that is worse than wasted in this little kingdom
of 50,000 people, the most of xvhom are pro
hibited by law from purchasing intoxicants.
Nearly all this sum is just so much waste from
the general thrift. It promotes no healthful in
dustries; it creates no capital; it builds no
homes ; it pays next to no store bills ; it adds no
vigor to the productive energies ; it tends to
diminish rather than increase resources and popu
lation. - '
We regret that our space will allow of no
more than this imperfect outline of the discourse,
which was argumentatively clear and eloquent
throughout. It has been translated and printed
The following is from the Santa Rarbar
Press of April 18th. As the Angora goat sub
ject has of late received considerable attention
here, and several parties have invested in tlie en
terprise, and others think of it, it may be well
to satisfy ourselves as to these sceptical questions
which arc boldly raised in a country where it
ought by this time to be notorious if j.he wool or
Lair is really valuable and. in staple demand.
How Auorr the Axgoeas ? Whether the Angora
goat will thrive on this continent, and especially iu
California, and furthermore, whether there is any
sufficient demand, or prospect of one, for its fleece,
are questions that, apparently, Lid defiance to any
hontst inquirer. Vie printed a few days ago so mo
extracts from a letter to the San liiego Union de
claring in the most unequivocal manner that the An-
gora goat noa survivea me winter netter tnan any i the vigorous hold maintained on the reins by a brave
other species of live stock that it waxed fat where ! ,,.. , , . , .
other animals could not subsist-and that the manu- ' WOman anJ there woulJ ProbablJ he been a sen
facturing world was impatiently waiting for the pre- ! ous result. Lad he not been fortunately stopped at
cious products of this imported mountaineer. And j the wharf gate by some gentlemen, foremost among
uow cuuit-3 inu rtiu, umiiDS ia me most unmisiaKa-
ble way that the whole business is a failure and a
humbug. It says :
"After an experience of thirteen years we have no
shipments of wool worthy of notice, and nobody who
makes, or declares his intention to make it an exclu
sive or extensive business to breed them for their
wool. They are bred in the State only for sale, and
the buyers are mostly persons who have had no ex
perience with them."
This is hard on the breeders; and the letter extoll
ing the adaptation of the Angora goat to this region !
was, as we recollect, from an interested party.
And then in regard to the demand for the fibre, i
the Prairie Parmer is not very encouraging in the j
following remarks : ;
" Fcr the past six years we have had occasion
every year to try and find a market ia this country '
fur the fleece of this goat. Several times we have ;
come as near to it as our friend Stuart seems to be, j
but have never been able to find the party who-l
wanteu to L-uy at any price; and now if Mr. llohert
Scott or asy other man will be kind enough to in- 1
form the Prairie Parmer .by whom and at what
price the different grades of this polyonomous goat's
rleece are wanted, he will confer a special favor on
many oi me readers ct this journal. e agree to i
announce the fact editorially without charge, and if :
any of the parties who purchased pure blood breed-
ing goats from four to six years ago, can now realize
in cash for the original stock, exclusive of the cost
of keeping and interest on the money, we shall be
gla 1 lo hear from them, with the address of the
party willing to buy."
It is evident that somebody has not merely blun- !
dered, but lied, about this Angora goat business, ;
and we call upon somebody ele to rise and explain. ;

and shame that we hire growing np amongst ns a class

public meetings is frequently noticeable, and was the
subject of remark at the Temperance meeting of

The Heated Tek.il Our Summer comes early
this year ; hot days and sweltering nights in May
are uot usual in our equable clime. Everybody
whose business oblig?a tbem to be abroad through

may appreciate Thompson's lines : - ,

Badlt Cct. We regret to learn that Rev. W. I.
Alexander, of Wailuku, received a dangerous gash
on his leg from a dirk-knife which .he was sharpen
ing. The wound inflicted was very deep, and owing
to the absence of a physician and want of proper
attention, mortification threatened to' set in. The
arrival of Dr. Hutchison from Honolulu at this junc
ture, and the application of prompt remedies alone
srvved the reverend gentleman's life. -Gazelle.
ZT The Secretary of the Queen's Hospital in-
V forms us that Messrs. Campbell & Turton of Lahaina,
favored that Institution by a present in the shape of

that these gentlemen have made similar gifts to the
Queen's Hospital annually for years past, we are au
thorized to state that such presents come most oppor

others take notice and do likewise.
Temperaj.ce Meetixq. A pretty large assemblage
of natives and foreigners met at the vestry room of
the Kawaiahao Church on Thursday evening last, to
discuss the liquor question, in view of the proposed
removal of the restriction on the sale to natives. The
meeting was ably addressed by the ltev. Messrs. Da
mon and Frear, Mr. C. J. Lyons and Mr. Z. Puli, a
member of the Legislature of 1872. The sentiment
of the meeting was one of earnest protest against the
proposed repeal of the law. . .
57" The proposed new regulation, requiring one
cent prepaid on all newspapers, did not emanate
from the Postmaster General, although as we under
stand he directed the attention of the Minister to the
increasing amount of such matter passing through
the mails, and the difficulty and expense attending
its transportation. . We are aware that the masters
of coasters take a very ungracious view of the pro
vision of law whioh compels them to carry the mails
, .The Beauties op Orii-jt. Letters from Maui by
the last arrival state that the Japanese laborers em
ployed at Captain Makee's Plantation at Ulapalakua,
made a murderous assault upon Mr. Henry Tread-
way on the 13th inst., and beat and bruised him
everely. Medical assistance was had as promptly
as possible, and the wounds were pronounced not
dangerous. The cause of the assault is stated to
have been that the men had lost time through the
use of opium, for which the overseer had declared
Lis intention of "docking" tbem, and they took
reveiYge accordingly. We hear that fifteen of the
assailants have been committed for trial. In this
connection we may state that 602 of the Chinese on
this island have petitioned to the Legislature, asking
that the importation and sale of opium be prohibited.
Almost a Rcvawat. Last Wednesday forenoon,
the carriage of Mr. Afong, with several ladies and a
child in it, was coming up Robinson's wharf, when
the horse, a large and powerful animal, becoming
frightened at some hides laid out to dry, and which
were being moved about by workmen, broke into
run anu colliding with a uray, smashed one fore
wheel and the axle. The animal kept on, in spite of

made by bystanders on the practice of drying hides
in the city and near to frequented thoroughfares.
Press Criticisms. No. 2.
The Gazelle in an editorial article on Charles
Sumner, makes use of the following fine sentiment.
" The main thing is to be sure what the truth is, to
have the strength and clearness of vision to see clear
of prejudice, bigotry or self interest." No truer
thing has been put in type for a long time, and I
coigratulate the editor of the Gazette in having
thas clearly and concisely set forth tha duty of every
oce, newspaper men in particular. The same paper,
'n a paragraph denying tbe truth of the report that
Judge Allen was L e., had been at Washington
negotiating a reciprocity treaty, says editorially, "It
has been known here for months past that the United
States most emphatically do not wish to
mike a reciprocity treaty, on any basis whatever;'
which statement, bearing in mind the noble senti
ment previously quoted, claps an extinguisher on the
lopes of those who looked to such a treaty for help.
Sail seeking for truth, in the editorial columns of
the Gazette of course, we arc met with the state
rntnt that the belief is general," in Washington
that it would require no very great effort to
secure a moderate treaty;" that " public sentiment
thrre is not averse to a reciprocity treaty with these j
island;" which proves that a man can blow hot or j
blow cold as the occasion demands.
Finding the Gazette inconsistent, I venture on j
the .VuAou in the hope that something like consist- !
eac7 rnaY e found therein
Alas, what do I see ;
bat let King Ka'akaui have children, come '
how they may, to till up h.a KingiuOi." la tLc next
col a ran, ia a t:ra-Je upen dry goods,, tbe .Vuu
writer ays : " We haTe entirely t:o many dry good a
which tempt mere good church going wahines
to folly than all other iuf iczccs put together." !
Heretofore I have always fc-unJ in the ediur cf
the .VlAju, a gx-d deal to almlrc; an 1, I am sti'.l
dirpc sel to think that he jxi-sesseis inucy quailues of ;
head anl heart that, fostered ia the genial sunshine !
of political success, would have Ume good fruit to j
thia nation and nourished its beat iutervats. But ia
this last wild scheme of breaklcg loose from the de- :
cent restraints imposed ty lawa, human and divine, t
on the most animal of all piotj, I recognize the
fact that political failures hiTe withered up his fine
feelings, and semi-barbarous schemes rule in the
place of civilized common sense.
A fanny l.tile typographical errcr in a para
graph about the Mennonites in the Gazette, makes
theza "contradict," with the Land Commissioner of '
a railway company. By so doing they "created
a cry ivur:itie impression. "contracting is
probably meant, but taking the word as it stands,
one cau imagine whit a noise thirty Cenuan-Prus-
sian-Quakers woull make "Contradicting," i. e, j
disputing with a Land Commiasioner ! i
Your article on the cultivation and curing of
coffee is very good and apropot. If the money speng .
on the ,Vu7i0u had been used in planting out coffee !
trees, I venture to eay that the returns in a few
years would be much more satisfactory. King Coffee j
will do much better here than on the African coast, j
and the growth of a few such articles in demand !
throughout the world articles that we cau produce i
better and cheaper than our neighbors would keep j
this nation alive and independent, . We do enjoy j
having good coffee; and as we make our own sugar,. :
anl milk our own cows, everybody who likes such
"condiments," as Mr. Parvenu calls them, can use
them at cost price. As for myself, I think, in regard
to milk in coffee, that it is useful to discover the
flies more readily, but not an improvement to the
beverage "- . - ,. i . ,....
- C. J. Lyons, who is nothing if not critical, has
dis-illusioned some cf us ia regard to heights and
distances. Facts are facts, but if our accurate Gov
ernment surveyor and his assistants go ou cutting
down previously received estimates cf the, extent,
breadth, and depth of our territory, we shall begin
to fear, with the Yankee in England, that some misty
morning we may "walk off tbe edge." There's
Haleakala for instance. Many a time have we
bragged of our mammoth crater, and now it only
measures 7x3 (miles). A mere hole in the ground,
hardly larger than the dent made by a ten-inch shell!
Again, the mystic meaning of the name Haleakala,
we are told is not " house of the sun." Well, con
sidering how it shrunk when Prof. Alexander drew
his theodolite on it, I should not be supriscd if Hale
akala meant " a caved in rat hole."
Your special, in his description of the Makee
plantation, says : "The roses were not in season."
That, I believe was the only mistake barring the
tint's fatttus business that he made in his account.
Roses at Ulupalakua are always in season. If not in
the garden then in the parlor, the boudoir, or other
pleasant feminine resort. As for the ignit fatuus,
I am at a loss to know from whence arose those
phosphorescent exhalations on the plains of Maalaea,'
noted for its superlative dryness and clouds of dust.
