sugar, nude at the Kohala Tlantation. The crystals
are large and white, and Fpurkle like diamonds.
Anyone who desires better sweetening for their cof

A Gale. The wind blew a gale on Sunday all
day and through the night, and on Monday it still
piped so loudly that in response to the request of
passengers the steamer Kibtueu's departure for
windward was postponed till next day. During
Sunday night a number of trees and some shrub
bery about town was blown down, but no serious
damage was done.
Music this Afternoon. The band will play at

At the Fountain. A correspondent calls atten
tion to the fact that a number of drivers of milk
wagons make a daily practice of stopping at the
fountain on the roaJ leading to Waikiki, washing out
their cans, making muJJy puJJ'es in the road anJ
spoiling the water in the trough for horses. This it
appears is on the way from town, after having sup
plied their customers. Quercy. Do they visit the
fountain cn their way going to town ?
Almost as Good as New. The ship M. J"olttlohm,
of New York, Captain Whitney, having gone through
the hands of the ship-carpenters, is now taking on
boar l her lading of guano, and will soon proceeJ on
her voyage to Europe. She has been thoroughly
overhauleJ, re-timbereJ, rc-caulked anJ re-coppereJ,
anJ is almost as gool as new. This will prove
another of the many instances in which Honolulu
mechanics have done credit to the reputation of the
port as a desirable tine for ships in need of repairs.
Contempt of Court. On Thursday last. Mr. S.
M. Kam.tkau, commonly known as " the historian,7'
who U sai l to be possessed of the happy faculty of
getting up a genealogy of chieftainship to order,
and who is undeniably afflicted with cacoethe.i scri
heuJi, was arraigned before the Suprerce Court
on a charge of having written and published in
the Kuokctn an article which was defamatory of the
Court. Mr. W. C. Jonea, who appeared as counsel
for Mr. Kamakau, OW a statement on behalf of his
client to the effect that he did not fully appreciate
the meaning and tenor of the words used by him,
but which he now perceived were objectionable,
and the use of which he regretted. On being
questioned by the Court, however, he appeared to
fully comprehend and somewhat eloquently expa
tiated cn the s'gniGeance of the old-time native
words he had used in the KnohO'i, but endeavored
to convoy the impression that he had not intended
to apply thorn to the members of the Court. A
pretty severe lecture was read to him by Mr. Jus
tice Harris, (in the course of which it was observed
that a newspaper publishing such matters was
equally liable with the writer,) and a nominal Cne
of ten dollars waa imposed, intended more, it was
remarked, as a warning to himsell and all others,
than as a punishment.

Are the boys, belonging to tho lower rJers,
who infest the streets of anight, deface higns, in
sult females and children and go for a Chinaman
on sight? Are these trig only " Hoodlums 'r
among us ; or have we not another class, higher
in so-called society, ymtn-j gmtlririen, who show
their brass before others are ready to, and do
play "low down;' mean tricks, ringing bells of
private houses, cither by tying a piece of beef to
the bell-handle, and causing some innocent dj to
do their dirty work, or failing the dog, the toy
purj, with incipient moustache, rushes bravely on
and rings it himself another purp being in at
tendance and then " see how they run."
Now, Mr. Hoodlum" in high places Mop
your tricks, and the Hoodlums in the lower strata,
not having your example before them, may be led
to do the same. And finally, please bear In mind,
that cowhides are handy, and any repetition of your
would-be manly tricks, will be duly appreciated by
The Samoan Islands.
Mr. J. A. Steinberger, brother of A. B. Stein
berger. Premier of the Samoan Kingdom, recently
arrived at San Francisco from the Samoan group,
has been giving the newspaper! the result! of Lis
observations. He says : The cost units worn cn the
island differ slightly from the styles so popular at
this time in San Francisco. The natives wear some
clothing, but not enough to come within the rules cf
parliamentary decorum, hence special rule were;
adopted imposing a fine of 100 upon every menu
bcr who should appear in the Legislative halls in a
partial or complete state cf nudity. j
Last July the Constitutional Government, re
called, with A. 15. Steinberger as Premier, was or
ganized at. 1 tight Governors appointed. The Leg
islature, composed cf two bodies, known as Taimua,
the Senate, and Taipua, the Assembly, is now in
session, passing laws with all the rapidity and haste
no doubt that characterize law making in the United
States. The members cf the Upper House, number
ing fifteen, are selected to serve for life from the high
chiefs cr prominent families cf the inlands. The
basis of representation in the Lower House, is cne
member to every 2,000 inhabitants eighteen repre
sentatives under the present population. They are
elected to serve for two years.
When the members were compelled to wear clothes
and pay for them, it began to dawn cn their minJs
that civilization Lad its discomforts as well as its
blessings. It is sail that a member cf the Samoan
Legislature in tight boots and plug hat is the most
grotepqae specimen cf law-making timber that con
stitutional liberty ever produced. At first they re
fused to wear anything cn their feet, so awkward
and uncomfortable did shoe leather appear to them,
but respect for the government finally impelled them
to change their decision. The school law recently
passed, levies a tax cn each village to support schools
in which pupils shall be taught in Loth the native
and English language. The Marriage and Divorce
Act does not differ materially from the California law
In this subject. That boon of freedom known as the
jury trial has already been beetowcl upon the be
nighted inhabitants cf the islands, and it is sail
that the standard cf intelligence 'u just high enough
to renJer the natives first-cla-is jurors. When a
white man is to be tried the consul cf whatever
nation the accused raiy hail from is entitled to the
privilege cf selecting two jurors cf the prisoner's
own countrymen. When the accused happens to be
a native the jurors are all copper-colored. Mr.
Steinberger speaks in unqualified praise cf the virtue
and chastity cf the native women, especially those
residing inland, or distant from the harbors where
sailors and other white men congregate. The women,
too, are not destitute cf personal beauty.
The military force of the government consists cf
one hundred and fifty we!l-JriileJ militiamen. In
the town cf Apia, the seat cf government, where
the population Las reached the number cf WX), po
lice officers patrol the streets regularly, and 'make
prompt arrests cf law breaker . There are only
three saloons in Apia at present, yet formerly there
were twenty. It may stagger some people to under
stand how civilization is progressing when the num
ber of drinking saloons has declined from twenty to
three. At 10 o'clock every Light a cannon is fired.
aud that is the signal Lr closing up the saloons.

As ! v ii-knt or ihk Tha Stohk. A gentleman
living up the bay says that a negro man, with Ma

tree to save themselves during tha late storm.
The tree swsyed to and (ro with tha violence of
the wind, and threatened to fall with IU heavy
burden. The old couple concluded that aoms one
must be sacrificed to save the rent. After a con
sultation the old woman said sho was not prepared
to die, and urged tho old man to diop hlmaelf Into
eternity. But ho too, was not ready, and the mat
ter was compromised by launching the two young

after they were rescued, and the old negro told
the story himself to those who saved him.
Mm. MoitiiissKr. Mrs. Morrlssey is a fins look

a tall, handsome, elegantly attire. 1 lady, who waa
walking up the street in front of Liin. He 'panted'"

and a blow that seemingly miht have felled an

Q'lickly he recovered himself, gathered lip his bea

street. The lady stood for a moment laughing at
his dicomflture and then turned upon her heel, tha
aJmiration of all beholders. Her would be adorer
