THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS ARE

resort for Invalids with brenchilal, 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

climate of Kona is one of the healthiest and most luxurious on

The anniversary of the birth of Her Msjesty tie
Queen occurring this year on Sunday, the reception
of ladies at the Palace was held on Monday, the 1st
and a salute was fired from Punchbowl battery,
His Majesty on Shipboard. On Tuesday last
the King, accompanied by Prince Leleiohoku and
members of the Stan, visited the Sunbeam, Capt.
Brassey, of the R Y. S , and II. B. M. S. Fantomt,
Commander Long. On board the latter vessel, the
party were entertained with some target practice.
Last Tuesday, January 2d was the anniversary
of tho birth of Her Majesty the Queen Dowager
Emma Kaleleonalani, and was observed by a
numerous gathering of her retainers and friends
at the residence, corner of Nnuanii and Beretania
streets. We are pleased to note that Her Majesty
is in good health

Masonic Presentation. On Saturday evening
Pec. SOtb, the members of Maui Lodge, No. 228,
F. & A. M., located at Wailuku, Maui, presented
a handsome jewel of office to their W. M., W. H.
Cornwell, on the occasion of the expiration of his
Concert and Tableaux at the Theatre on Satur
day evening last, for the beneGt of the Kawaiabao
Benevolent Society, drew a full bouse, and the
affair was a decided success throughout. The
tableaux were pronounced very One and tbe sing
ing good. The net receipts were about $400.
A Grain of Truth to a Bushel of Lies. In the
San Francisco Chronicle of Peo. 1C, is the result of
an interview between a reporter of that journal and
" an intelligent merchant of Honolulu," which may
be summed up in the words at the bead of this
paragraph. Somebody has libelled us badly.
Scdde.v Deaths. Recently there has been two
deaths of well-known Hawaiians, and both quite
sudden. V. F. Kailiull, a captain in the police
force lor a number of years and a very estimable
man, died almost instantly in the station house on
Saturday last. J Kalanikahua, formerly a store
keeper on Fort street, died like one going to sleep,
after a hearty dinner on New Year's fjaVf
The Arctic Disaster. The London Times
prints a letter signed " Arctic," and dated Ports
mouth, which is presumed to be written by a mem
ber of Captain Nares' Polar, expedition. The
writer reviews the reports of tbe recent disaster
to the American whaling fleet in Bebring's Sea
and combats the theory that the seamen who re
mained on the vessels in the ice must necessarily
perish during the winter.
Captain C. C. Moreno. This gentleman, who as
our readers will remember has been indefatigable in
procuring the passage by Congress of the Trans
pacific Cable Bill, informs us by letter from San
Francisco that he hopes to visit Honolulu shortly, in
the interests cf the Cable Company. We trust that
he will receive from our government and people
every facility in forwarding the enterprise which it
may be in our power to afford.
Investigating: the Question. We learn form
the Commercial Herald of San Francisco that the
Secretary of the Treasury at Washington has sent
to the eqast an agent to look into the workings of
tbe Hawaiian treaty. Tbe agent was at last ac
counts busily engaged interviewing the refiners,
importers and jobbers, particularly with reference
to tbe high grades of Island washed sugars, for
which the Collector of San Francisco has recently
charged a duty of five cents a pound.
"Base BalCt .Wailuku (wbich,wlnce the coinci
dent decadence of tlie whaling fleet and Lahaina,
claims to be the second city of the Kingdom) has
a base, ball club, with the somewhat aspiring
ftRre-of Excelsior' With a proper recognition
of its title, this club challenged tbe hitherto invinci
ble " Athletes" of Honolulu, and accordingly the
latter proceeded all the way to Wailuku to give
battle. Two games were played, the first on Fri
day the 29th, in which the Wailuku boys were the
winners by one run ; and tbe second on Saturday
tbe 30tb, when the Honolulu boys beat their oppo
nents by eigfdeen runs. Tbe latter, it la said, will
come to the city to play the odd game.
Ball ox Thursday Evening. Under the able
management of a committee of citizens, a sub
scription ball and supper was given at the Hawai
ian Hotel on Thursday evening last, which was a
brilliant and highly successful alTair. Among the
guests we noticed Prince Leleiohoku and the Prin
cesses Kamakaeha and Likelike; the American Min
ister Resident ; the British Commissioner, and other
foreign representatives; Com. Long and officers
of H. B. M. S. Fantome; the Minister of the Interior;
Gov. Dominis, &c, &c. The guests were received
by MesJames Makee and McGrew. The toilettes of
tbe ladies were both rich and tasteful but our Jen
kins was not on hand for a description. Tbe musio
by the military band under Mr. Schmidt was excel
lent, and the supper, spread by the inimitable von
OehlhafTen, was superb in a'l its appointments.
Much credit is due to all concerned in the. manage
ment of this very pleasant party.

School Entertainment at Wailuku. An attcn
tive correspondent at East Maui writes us that at
the annual entertainment of the English School In
the thriving town of Wailuku, which took place'on
tbe 22 December, a large audience was present, and
4he exercises went off extremely well. The per
formanccs of the children reflected much praise on
the teachers, Mr. W. A. Swan, master, and Miss C.
Thompson, mistress, the boys giving good evidence
of careful, conscientious training. The proceedings
i were enlivened by some clever tricks of legerdemain
vindly performed by a friend, and which created
rhuch amusement. A few part songs were sweetly
sung by tbe girls, accompanied on the harmonium
by Mho Rev. J. Bridger. The distribution of some
useful prizes to the children, who had earned them
during the year, brought the pleasant evening to
Canvassing tub Vote. Tbe second Monday in
February is tbe day fixed by law on which the
President of the Senate will open the certificates
and read the returns which have been made out and
forwarded to Washington. Tbe latest phase of tbe
election shows that Hayes will have 185 electoral
votes and Tilden 184. Should no question be raised
beyond this point, Hayes will be tbe next President.
But in view of alleged frauds in South Carolina,
Florida, Louisiana and. Oregon, there is every pro
bability that Congress will go behind the returns
and enquire into the elections in those states. Which
ever side may gain the government in this contest.
it must be done fairly. Neither party can afford to
take the control of publio affairs on any other terms.

Nor will there be any disturbance, much less a civil

- Benefits of the Treaty.
It is stated that one of tbe results of the Hawai
ian Treaty has been a great appreciation of value
n toe islands, and of a large increase of trade be-
ween tbe Government of Hawaii and the United
tates: Tbe area of land for tbe production of
ugar and rice is being extended, and it is expect
ed mat tne next sugar crop will exceed the prev
ious yieiu Dy at leant twenty-nve per cent. A still
larger increase in tbe rice crop will be obtained.
and tbe planters are confident of releasing their
property from Uebt In a year or two, and placing
themselves upon a noim commercial foundation.
Hitherto a large portion of the crops has been sent
to the Australian colonies, where tbe duties were
less than in American ports, but since tho duties
nave been entirely removed bere the whole yield
of tbe Islands will find a market on the Pacific
Coast The exports of lumber, hardware, flour,
etc., from ban trancisco to Honolulu bave nearlv
trebled in tbe last month in consequence of tbe
extension of plantations, wbich necessitates the
building of storehouses, ctushing mills, etc., tho
purchase of new machinery and other articles that
have in times past been obtained from England
and Germany. In view of this state of Affairs tbe
Hawaiian Government has appropriated a subsidy
for carryinsr the foreign mails, and negotiations
are pending that will probably result in tbe estab
lishment cf a direct line of steamers between San
Francisco and Honolulu, by the Pacific Mail Com
pany. It is expected also that such modifications
cf tbe Australian mail contract will be made as to
require but three steamers on that line Instead of
five, and reduce the time of passage. This will
allow thc placing cf two steamers between Ban
Francisco aod Honolulu, running once a month,
between the Australian steamers that will continue
to touch at the Sandwich Islands. ,San Jose Mer
cury. It is asserted that a full impression of a human foot
has been found in sandstone in Connecticut, side by
side with the pre-historic bird tracks. The genuine
ness or tbe track is doubted, as the track appears
to be too perfect, and is therefore, attributed to mo
dern manufacture. Per contra, a Spanish Mexican
coin, dated 1710, is said to have been found imbed
ded in a solid rock taken from the bed cf the Rio
Grands river. The stone is described as very hard,
and almost transparent.
The salmon product of the Columbia river. Ore
gon, including not only the fish shipped, but also
those consumed by the fishermen themselves, will
this year reach the immense total cf 40,000,000
pounds. The salmon are either salted and packed
in barrels or canned fresh. In tbe latter form it is
in great demand in all parts cf the world, and hun
dreds cf thousands cf esses, containing each four
dozen cans, which latter weigh a pound and a quarter
apiece, are annually put up. Of these England alone
takes 165,000 ; New Zealand, 2,400; South America,
1500; Australia, 14,000; New York and the Allan
tic coast, 58,000. The valae cf tbe canned salmon
of the Columbia river is esteemed at ?8,000,000 an
nually. Tbe last London story is that a scheme ia on foot
for reviving the Byzantine Empire under tbe ruler
ship of his Royal Higness the Duke cf Edinburg. A
jeweller cf the Rue St. Martin, in Paris, with prinoe
ly patronage to Russia, has gone to St. Petersburg
to tecure the order for the crowns regnant and mat
rimonial of the future bead of tbe Lower Empire and
bis imperial spouse tbe Grand Duchess Marie. Mr.
Mundella, M. P., in a speech the ether day, said
something about the desirability cf Byzantium being
restored and handed ever to "onr sailor Prince."
A German king has been found to suit at Athena.
Why should not an English one of German blood do
at Constantinople? England has princes and to
spare for exportation to foreign States. If tbe real
ization cf this scheme were to relieve tbe Consolidat
ed Fund of the pension of tbe Duke and Duchess cf
Edinburg, it would be a slender consolation to the
British tax-payer for their transportation to the
shores of the Bosphorus, and it would enable the
proud daughter of the Czar to take for the rest cf
her life precedence over her English sister-in-law,
