the leeward side of Hawaii, has long been famed as a place of
resort for invalids wan broncmtal, or lung diseases. With its
pure and mild atmosphere, with its absolute freedom from
storms or high winds, with its porous soil which, with all its
rich vegetation, retains no dampness and yields no malaria, and
with an unvarying temperature that of the American or
Southern European June ALL THE TEAR ROUND, the
climate of Kona is one of the healthiest and most luxurious on

Pay of Koad Supervisors. The Assembly has
seen 'fit. in Its previous consideration, of tho ap
propriation bill, to merge tbo office ol Koad Su
pervisor of Oahu with another bureau, and at the
same time reduced tho oggregato pay for the
Kingdom from $9000 to C000. By reference to
previous appropriation bills it will be eeeu that
Tor n number of years back tho former sum has
been regularly appropriated for thin sort Ice, and
after deducting the amount paid for the supervisor
Miip oi Oabu. the remainder Rives but a very
small salary to the supervisors of the several dis
tricts throughout tho Kingdom, tho highest being
about $320, and the lowest about SI 00. The sala
ries vary somewhat from year to year, according
to tho amount of work reported by tkc supervisors
Now, the amount paid the supervisor for Oahu
has been $2400 for the two years, which deducted
from $9000 left $CG0O to bo divided amongst the
other supervisors, but the amount In the present
bill is only $6000, which is n reduction of 6 COO
front what has heretofore been distributed amongst
the supervisors of the outer districts. 1 ho appro
priations for roads and bridges have been gener
ous this session, and much more work in that line
will probably be done thLs biennial period thnn In
tbo same time for years pant, which will require
more of tho time and attention of the supervisors,
and 1 would therefore ask that tbo item in the bill
be placed at $7000, doubting not that you will ail
agree with me that a matter of so much Importance
as the making and repairing of tho roads and
bridecs of the Kingdom should notbe discouraged
by reducing tho salaries (already very small) of
those who have to plan and do the work, and If
our finances would permit I should not hesitate to
urge a very considerable Increase, but for the
present I will only ask for the above amount.
Fencing New Government Buildings $5000.-1
hesitate, Mr. Chairman, to touch this item, when I
recollect that this Honorable House baa already
discussed it thoroughly and declined to make any
provisions for such expense. But I will crave
your indulgence for a few moments while I present
a few reasons in its favor.
Aliiolani Hale is the only building erected by
the Hawaiian Government which lays any claim
whatever to architectural proportion or beauty.
None of the appropriations for the building have
been found sufficient to do the work in tbo bienni
al periods for which they were set apart, and In
completing the building to its present state,
(which cannot be called finished, at least as was
first intended) the appropriation granted at the
last session of tbo Legislature had to bo largely
overdrawn. Still, with this extra expense, it was
not found posslblo to construct a suitable fence,
and tbo fence which was on the premises when
they were purchased, and which still surrounds
them, was too shabby and rotten to make it advis
able to expend any considerable amount of money
in repairs, consequently little has been done to ft
further than to set up again such parts as from
timo to time rotted down, as it was confidently
expected that the present Legislature would make
f provision for tho construction of a fence In keep
ng with the building itself.
We have good reason to bo proud of our largo
and commodious building, and travelers from
abroad frequently compliment us on its fine sub
stantial appearance and general appointments: but
it cannot bo denied that the fence and gates, both
front and rear, are a serious blemish on tbo whole
I would therefore ask tbo Honorablo House to
set aside the sum of $5000 for tho purpose of
building a new fence and gates and tho improve
ments and care of tho grounds for tho current
biennial period. $4000 of this cum will bo suffi
cient to build a substantial and neat fence, and
the remaining 91000 I propose to expend in im
proving the grounds, planting ornamental shrub
bery and trees, and paying for prison or other
labor necessary to keep tho premises in order.

decisions made by Boundary Commissioners
throughout the Kingdom, was laid before tbo Hon

would ask that tbo sum of $1000 be set aside for
this purpose, and as in the settlement of bounda
ries government interest? are not nnfrequently af
fected, Agents have to bo appointed to defend
them, witnesses summoned, &c, all entailing more
or less expense, I would ask that $500 more be set
aside for this purpose, making in all $1500.

THOUGHTS ON EDUCATION-No. 2.
'- Not eujuymett auI ut sricw
Is our destined end or wav;
But to act, ibat each to-morrow
rind as farther than lo-lj."Lvn'litHo-.
After the general remarks in the first number (see
Advertise of Sept. ICth) we will now enter in de
tails and intend to solve the problem : " who can be
teachers," and " how can we procure them T " Tbe
government of a country is under the obligation to
protect its subjects. To guard the lives of its citizens
there are laws which restrict tbe practicing of medi
cine to persons who arc duly qualified, who have
given evidence of sufficient knowledge cf the human
body so that the sick may with confidence be placed
in their care. Nobody would opine that this law is
unjust, that it infringes upon the rights of citizens
to earn their bread in the way they prefer. Yet the
danger existing for society in allowing qutcks to
practice medicine is comparatively little, as only a
limited number cf lives will be exposed to the results
cf their incapacity. But bow msny futures are
spoiled, how many lives blighted; what forces with
drawn from society, and what obstacles put in tht
way of progress and humanity by confiding a rhlag
generation, our own children, the " spes patriae "
to the care (?) of incapable selfish men who, with
their flogging and thrashing think them toh es teach
ers, call themselves, forsooth, educators. Let our
readers remember, that we do not intend to insinu
ate against the teachers cf the schools In this coun
try. For we frankly confess that our knowledge of

Another Chapter on Cockroaches.
In our to-day's leasoa ia natural history wt will
consider what ont of tht boys called lbs Asiatic or
long-tailed cockroach, a designation though true la
ont tense, is as wrong in fact. Comparativt soology
excludes tht so-called long-tailed oockroach alto
gether from the family of dolus, whllt Investigation
of thoir habits and Instincts places them really as a
species of the oommon cockroach. Among the habits
of the common clclu we have noticed la our former
lesson that they art ubiquitous, grep-arlous, eto., and
in this the long-tails art closely allied to the oom
mon elclu. Once introduced into town or city a
few settle la a street, upon a corner lot If possible.
and in a short time tbt whole street and almost every
house is taken possession of by tbo long-tailed del us,
who are even more destructive to rtal ettalt than
the common eleltt to a pantry. Tbe paint of a house
disappears la dust and dirt never to be renewed, tht
whitewash becomes Mackwaab, nails corrode and
boards are loose and general ruin follows possession
by tbe long-tails; streets are aTolded by people of re.
epectability and tht colony cf long-tails msy revel
uoanturDca in tueir nun ana increasing ram, and
before any one msy take notloe of the fact, outposts
are thrown out all over city and suburbs, invariably
corner lots, and tht prooeet cf colonisation goes on
rapidly but at tbt same tlmt very quietly, and will
hardly be noticed until tbe advancing state of dilap
idation calls attention to tht new colony. '
as regards their habits of gregarloasness tht Ions.
tailed cockroach Is as srrerarlous as tht common.
Only a few weeks ago not less than fifty long tails
lived and slept In ono room on kiaunakea street,
and that not large one, but very likely a lively
one, until the sardine box was evenly filled.

Thus tbeso longtails encroach upon the harness

IL Bice in the schedule cf frco articles was tbo
very ono which found in tht American Senate such
ardent opposition from Southern members, and
came near wrecking tb treaty. IUce is tht very
article which our government In honesty and ns
an act cf duty ought to fcavt excluded from the
list cf freo goods, because it is not a product of
Hawailans, though tbrongb tbo Incapacity of the
Hawaiian Government and Legislature, a nroduet
cf tbo soil cf Hawaii. In former times, tbe culti
vation cf rice was one of the resources cf tbe
country, and I have seen la a late paper sugar and
rice pronounced the two principal rosources of
tbe country, but it Is not so, and has not been for
somo time and never will bo again, because tbo
rice crop produced in Hawaiian taro patches has
become out and out, a resource cf tht Celestial
Empire I Every dollar received from rice goes to
China, and not ono dollar expended here, either
for labor or mat bags Is cf benefit to the country.
This perhaps Is considered by tho advocates of
Chinese immigration also as a great benefit to the.
country; and so it may bt looked upon in a vise
legislative view, as such losses as that cf the rice
crop may bo easily made up by a new govern
ment loan, and loans, yon know, bring money Into
There are at present somewhat ever 2500 long
tails on these islands, Imported at an expense cf
not lees than $50,000, ostensibly for the purpose of
finding their habitat on tbo sugar plantations, but
it Is extremely doubtful if more than 300 out of
the 2500 are laborers on such plantations. And If
that number is there now, as soon as their con
tracts have expired they will hunt np established
colonies oi their countrymen.
There can be no doubt that action will be taken
in the American Congress, based npon a report
that will be made by their Investigating committee
in California, and thereafter hundreds and thou
sands of longtails, debarred entrance Into Califor
nia, will hurry out of it, and then these Islands
will become tbe rallying point for tbt Celestials,
as soon as they art made aware of tht fact that
this is the only country on the globt that ever
paid a bonne for tbt introduction cf these usrfvl
immigrants. Tbe Legislature adjourns in their
wisdom without considering tbt Chinese question
a question as important as the treaty in fact, a
question upon which tbo benefit of the treaty to
tbe country hinges. 1 have again Introduced the
