Concerts by tue Bantx Mr. Berger and his

that the new school year of this institution begins on
Wednesday next, Sept. 8th. The corps of teachers

HaLF-Mast. The flags on the Government Build
ings and the shipping in port were displayed at
half-mast on Thursday last, as a token of respect to
the memory of the late Hon. E. II. Boyd, as were
also the flags on the different Engine Company houses,
Mr. B. having been for a nnmber of years an active
member of the Fire Department.
Mend toir Ways. We would beg to puggest to
householders that they might escape being the
cause of much hasty and too high-flown language
by pedestrians at night, if they would trim trees
and shrubbery overhanging the side-walks. This
applies to the tnauka portion of King street beyond
Fort, and to many other places about town.
From Death to Life. An operation, known to
the medical profession as Tracheotomy, was per
formed on Wednesday of this week by Dr. Trousseau,
on a boy of about ten years of age, who was within
a hair'e-breadth of death from acute laryngitis
commonly known as croup. The operation consists
in cutting into the throat and relieving the windpipe
of the accumulation of mucus that is strangling the
patient. It was all over in ten minutes, and the
little fellow, rescued from the jaws of death, is
Pointing. The front of G. C. McLean's new
rick building on Nuuanu street "has gone through
the process of what builders call "pointing," giving
if such an attractive appearance that passers-by
"point" at its near neighbor makai, and remark
that it deserves the same kind of adornment Mr.
jMcLean has not only greatly enhanced the" falue of
his own property by the two handsome, substantial
buildiDgs he has placed upon it, but he has also
thereby advanced the interests of property holders in
his neighborhood, and earned the commendation of
the community at large.
A Noteworthy Birthday". A pleasant reunion
of the relatives and connections of Mrs. Betsy Judd,
tire mother of the late Dr. G. P. Judd, took place at
the homestead, Nuuanu avenue, on the 28th alt.,
to celebrate that venerable lady's 93d birth-day.
Poems were recited and addresses of congratulation
made. Say 3 the Friend, of Mrs. Judd : " She will
leave a numerous posterity to follow in her ' foot
prints on the sands of time,' having eighty-eight
connected with her family now residing on the
islands. She has had six children, thirty-one grand
children and forty-two great-grandchildren."
A Valuable Property. In taking a drive out
on the Kulaokahua continuation of King street,
attention is attracted to the premises just beyond the
Catholic cemetery, the property of Mr. C. P. Ward.
The lot consists of some thirty acres, and is thickly
planted with algaroba and, in rows, there are some
seven thousand thrifty young cocoanut trees (we
can't bring ourselves to. spell it "cokernut," the
example of the London Custom-house to the contrary,
notwithstanding ) The algarobas will certainly be
valuable as firewood, and the cocoanuta alone will in
a few years produce a handsome income. The pro
perty is well watered by means of pumps driven by
windmills, there being an inexhaustible supply of
water a few feet below the surface of the plains
China Tows. This is the name we have heard
applied to that part of Nuuanu street which is com
prised between King and Beretania streets. Through
out the whole length of about half a mile there are
but ten stores not in occupancy of the gregarious
Chinese, where they carry on the occupations cf
retail store-keepers, restaurants, shoemakers, tailors,
rice-cleaners, etc. etc. Industrious they certainly
are, as a rule, and apparently thriving. v Recently
three large new two-story wooden buildiugs have
been erected between Hotel and King streets by
Chinese carpenters, the lower pcrtlona fitted up for
stores and the upper as lodg'mg apartments. In
case of a fire, what a blaze one of these structures
would make. From Hotel street to King, everything
is woodv-n; but above Hotel street, we note the con
servative pretence of Mr. Perry's stone store, and
the two brick fire-pmof structures of Mr. McLean.

SracTRY. Says a recent number of the London
Lancet: 'It may be fairly asked whether some
thing like the attainable limits of even conservative
surgery have not now been reached. Within the
last few years mill and compromising measures have
been successfully substituted for bold and radical
operations ; limbs formerly condemned have been
saved by the comparatively small sacrifice of a joint,
and cases which in the opinion of the older surgeons
wr-nld have been considered hopeless are now treated
with the confident assumption of a prospect of re
covery. Quite recently surgical conservatism has
gained still greater conquests; for by the adoption of
a method of operating for which wc are chiefly
indebted to the active intelligence of Prof. Esmarch
of Vienna, a joint may now be excised, or even a
limb removed, with little more than the mere sight
of blood." Under the above method, an operation
was performed this week at the Queen's Hospital on
a young man injured by carelessly attending a cir
cular saw. Four fingers were amputated above the
joints, without the loss of a drop of blood. The
whole operation, including the application of the
elastic bandages by Dr. Trousseau, who first intro
duced them here, lasted ten minutes.
The following is a translation of fbe leading ar
ticle in the native newspaper Ka Lahui Hawaii, of
Sept. 2 :
j' The British Admiral's ship, the Repulse, has
fpaid us a visit, and gone on her voyage. Wc regret
' to know that during her stay here, there were some
shameful doings on board, j The majority of readers
know to what we allude, and it is therefore unneces
sary to particularize. No one can object to the
people going on board of ships of this kind, which
arc indeed curious to see, but the nature of the
proceedings that were allowed on board that ship
were quite disgraceful, and amounted to a real pub-
r Numbers of males and females went on board tue
lip, from grown persons to little children. Intox
icating drink was given to the visitors; who soon
began, under this influence, to quarrel, use bad
language, and eventually to come to blows. Men
and women consorted together, and scenes of de
bauchery ensued of the most outrageous description.
Some of the women remained on board until night,
and some even did not return on shore until the
next morning, when they were still intoxicated with
the liquor with which the sailors had supplied them
during the disgraceful orgies. Thus did this ship
become a temple of Satan, wherein were performed
whatever deeds he might inspire.
" Are not such proceedings a great evil? A fearful
abomination? In our opinion there is ampls reason
here for shame and lamentation. Hawaii should
bang her head, and grieve for her children. 3 And if
such things are allowed on shipboard, to the dishonor
of the British flag, then it is time that Hawaii
should take care that for the future her own people
be not exposed to the possibility of a repetition of
such scenes of disgrace and humiliation.'
Mr. Editor : I have heard of a transaction dur
ing the week that leads me to enquire : Where are
we drifting to? And what next? Of course I am
not making an authoritative statement; simply relat
ing tke matter as it came to me from a reliable
source. A gentleman, who has been identified with
the country and with the Hawaiian race for over
forty years, has been in the habit of prescribing
remedies for the maladies of the race for many
years without the authority of a license, but for the
past ten years under a license from the Board of
Health has received a peremptory demand to sur
render his license, without cause assigned. By hear
ing a little here and a little there the conclusion is
arrived at that somebody has made a complaint to
the Board, charging malpractice, possibly man
slaughter. Upon this tx parte statement the Board
issues its mandate. One would suppose that the
foreign members of the Board would have suggested
furnishing the party charged with so grave an
offense with a copy of the charges, and have re
quested a reply ; that they would have scouted the
idea of passing judgment upon a fellow man without
giving him a chance to defend himself, even before
so august a body; but &9 the foreign members are in
the majority I must conclude that they have allowed
temper to master judgment. Let me ask them to
apply the "Golden Rule" to their action, and see
how it will square.
Setting aside the matter from a personal stand
point, how about the principle involved? With this
action of the Board for a precedent, any license issu
ing from the Interior Department may be as sum
Concerning the propriety of allowing the gentle
man alluded to to practice among natives, or others
requiring treatment, I have an opinion which may
be worth consideration. I need not remark that the
ills to which natives are peculiarly liable are increas
ing; that death scores his victims with alarming
The stricken native casts about for treatment, he
has, I am sorry to say, a strong prejudice against
the hospital practice, although given without price;
be thinks of this or that one of our many regular
practitioners, but the fee for advice and the charge
for medicine, a knowledge of which he haB by his
own or a neighbor's experience, warns him that his
purse cannot tear the cost The choice remaining
to him is limited, he thinks of bis old-time friend,
the friend of his race, not a regularly educated
physician, not equipped with the, to the average
mini, mystical parchment, so easily attainable now-a-duys;
but withal, or rather without all, a practi
tioner who has been successful in his treatment of
disease, who has now the confidence of the Dative
race to a remarkable degree. The sick native may
send fr him or he may summon the regularly
licensed, recognized "kahuna." Alas, the saper
stitiens of the race are so strong that in too many
instances the native " kahuna" is summoned, who
alone is supposed to be able to cope with native dis
eases; for, as they reason, how can foreign medicines
reach the rnai niaoli.
Will any careful thinker admit for a moment that
the foreigner alluded to is not the more competent
person to treat the sick; that he is by Car the superior
of the average, aye, or the best " kahuna." It is
said on every hand that the malpractice of the
"kahuna" is decimating the population. As the
native cannot afiord the fee and charge of our regu
lar practitioners, as his prejudices, ill or well founded,
will not permit him to go to the hospital, ii it net
better to let him have access to the gentleman
alluded to, than to thrust him off upon the kahuna ?
I am advised that the gentleman who has been so sum.
marily visited by the wrath of the Board is alwy
ready to ask, and bs frequently sought the adtlc
of the regular practitioners cf our city in csc that
wcr beyond hi ken. If yea would fcht the kahuna
neccsafully let this gentleman, and ethers equally
competent and constitution?, viit cur ick when
called upon, cr else corurxl, a one of the c.ni lera-
iocs for which a license to practice shall issue, our
regular f ractitiocer to give alvke anJ medicines

Ma. Epitok : I beg L suggest Lr the cotisidcra
tioocf the next Legislature the enactment of a law
'to regulate the practice of melicine." wherein it
shall be made cAmpiilcry on licensed pbjiicists to
respond, or show good reason fcr not duinj i ), when
called upon to attend professionally on the sick.
The penalty for refusing to so attend, wheu properly
summoned, should l-e a ftifeiture tf the license to
practice. There is such a law in s ine countries cf
Europe, and in the Unite! States, an ! it works well
in the interests of huruinity.
The wsy I figure it. this community pays about
$30,000 a year for doctors; and although this is a
salubrious climate, Honolulu his proved a mine (f
wealth to about every doctor that come here.

Some More Remarks From "Truthful
Does the Government ray the physician of the
Board of Health, raiding at Waiiuku, a salary of
52,400 r annum, merely as a subsidy, in order to
retain a competent man there, that the foreign resi
dents may not Le without a doctor? if
Or doe the present jueumbent .ceive that sum
that he may attend to the di.-(JC?ses of indigent
inhabitants of the three Islands of Maui, Molokai
If the former, then it were as well that the Gov
ernment were at once undeceived. Maui Is known
to be the best and most lucrative district outside cf
Honolulu for a physician to reside iu, as there are
more foreigners capable of supporting a doctor there
than anywhere else in the group. Therefore, wa
the subsidy withdrawn, competition would soon bring
forward the best man; and the Government may feel
assured that Maui will not be without a coiupeteut
doctor, well paid by the liberal people of that bland.
If, however, the physician of the Board of Health
is paid the aforesaid sum of $2,100 per annum to
attend to the distresses of the iuJigent, perhaps it
would be as well that inquiries be made as to the
amount of labor performed by that party during the
past year; and also into the possible beuefit the
indigent have derived from his attentions.
We know with what liberality the Government,
through the Board of Health, have supplied stores of
medicines to this and that depot, and it is pierumsd
the Board is informed as to the uses it is put to.
Of covrte the Board has given directions as to the
number of time Molokai and Lanai and the different
district shall be visited by their physician, and
require him to notify the inhabitant of the different
districts as to the time when he may be expected to
be there, that they may bring their sick to the pool
of Siloam at the troubling of the waters thereof.
Are these direction complied with? With so
liberal a subsidy in addition to what the foreign
resident pay, one would think that a working phy
sician had accpe to do a great deal of good. We
know how diffident natives are in exposing their sick
nurses to strangers, and can see the utility of a
doctor going round among them and gaining their

We can hsrdly credit says the New York Herald
the story that the Spanish government means o
far to forget its pledge of liberalism a to furce the
Prostestant missionary now laboring in Madrid to
leave thi city I Nor is it creditable that the influ
ence of the Pifpil Nuncio should be ued to such an
object. . The effect of such an example, especially
when under the direct stimulus of the Papal Min
ister, will be most unfortunate. Here in America,
in England and in other countries the Catholic
church receive the widest liberty. It is allowed Io
spread and grow and exercise all the function of
spiritual authority. In Germany we find laws lim
iting this freedom, and the result is that the Pope
never ceases to protest in tones that spread all over
the world against the persecution of the church.
And yet, in Spain, as soon as a Catholic prince
ascends tbe throne we Lave the Catholics adopting
the same system as Germany. How can the Pope
ask for that liberty to his church in Germany which
he denies to the Protestant church in Spain? How
can we welcome the spread of a church in America
which threatens, as soon as it has power, to oppose
and suppress all other churches, and in to doing
violate an express And cardinal principle cf our
Keely's New Motor.
The August number cf the Boston Journal of
C'hemiilry, has the following :
The newspapers of the country have recently con
tained notices of a new and marvcllc motive

pondents inquire if this alleged new discovery is
probably of any practical value, if the claims set
up have any foundation in truth. We think neb
It is doubtless another scheme like that originated
by Paine, of Worcester, twenty-v year go. Mr.
Paine succeeJed in keeping the whole country
excited! fzv months, by pullisLing 'statements that
be had discovered a new method cf decomposing
water and producing therefrom a cheap and brillaut
light. But his light Vint cut in darkness, and we
have cs doubt the " Keely motor" will soon stop
rotating and the dupes cf his "enterrii" will
suffer great disappointment. Keely is alleged to
have made tbe following statement, which is enough
cf itself to show Li in to be a charlatan cf the first
water: " I have produced the results which many
persons have seen, in the precise manner heretofore
stated, to wit : the iutroduction of atmospheric air
into my machine, a limited quantity of natural
water direct from a hydrant at no greater than the
ordinary hydrant pressure, and tie L.achine itself,
which is simply a mechanicul structure. With these
three agents alone, unaided by any and every chem
ical campound, heat, electricity, cr galvat-ic action,
I have produced in an inappreciable period cf time.
by a simple manipulation cf the machine, a vaporic
substance at one expulsion cf volume of ten
gallons. Laving an elaiu energy often thousand V

A writer In Public Health recommend that a dish
or basin large enough to present a good surface of
water be placed In rooms where tho heat Is oppressive
and the water changed once or twice a day on very
hot day, to ecure a general lowering of the temper
ature. The hot air of tbe room take up the water
in the form of atmoepherio vapor and diffuse tbe
greater coolness cf tbe water throughout tbe room,
until air and water becomes of tbe same temperature.
When this takes place fresh water should be put in
the dish. He says that be baa found a tantUer full
of water potential " enough when Ls bi been wit
ting in a small study, but the greater th surface of
the water in contact with the air th more effect aa!
will be tbe diffusion cf atmospheric vaper. Tbe
writer does not say whether the door and window
are to be kept open or closed, a condition that might

and window either abut or open, and with a venae!
containing any quantity of water, from a tumblerful
