SATURDAY. APRIL 27.
Dr the return of Col. Allen, we learn that II. R.
II. the Heiress Apparent and party were enjoying
their visit to California to their hearts' content.
Her Higbnes3 ia much improved in health. The
party have been making excursions into the coun
try, having visited Sacramento, going up by rail
way, via Stockton, and returning to San Francisco
by the river boat. They are expected home by
the steamer cf May 21st.
In accordance with the Royal Proclamation,
the Legislative Assembly of the Kingdom will
convene at Aliiolani Hale on Tuesday next for
the transaction of public business. There is a
good deal of legislation needed for the welfare of
the people, which, if suited to the wants of the
country, cannot be but productive of good.
Whatever measures may be passed should be
wise and thorough. No crude or balf-way laws
upon any subject will answer. To accomplish
any real good they muBt be well considered, and
made thoroughly applicable to the purposes
for which they are designed. There is sufficient
legal talent among the members to mould the
bills that may come before the Assembly into
proper shape before they are passed, and we hope
they will 6pare no effort to make them clear and
simple and adapted to our wants. As a matter
of public interest, we give the names of members
of both branches of the Assembly :
House of Nobles :
Their Excellencies, J. O. Dominis. J.MottSmith,
J. M. Kapena, II. A. Peirce and A. S. Hartwell ;

Kauai. Messrs. J. Kauai, A. Kaukau, Palohau.
Another subject to which we desire to call the
attention of the next Legislative Assembly, is
that of mechanics' liens. Wc have no lien law
in this Kingdom. The rights of the mechanics,
which are secured by statutory enactment in
every well regulated government, are in this
Kingdom, left without security or redress, except
so far as the general law of contracts affects
them. The common law, which is only er ne
ccsitale the law of the Kingdom, protects the
rights of common carriers, inn-keepers, factors,
bankers, brokers and pawnees, but the higher
lien which the mechanic requires for buildings
erected, or materials furnished, in aiding the ma
terial progress ot the country, is not sufficiently
defined and enforced by the common law. We
respectfully suggest that a lien law should be
passed, with provisions broad enough to protect
every class of mechanics and artizans, who per
form labor upon, or furnith materials for the
erection of any building or other structure, or
improvement, whether done at the instance of
the owner of 6uch building structure or im
provement, or his agent; and every contractor,
sub-contractor, architect, builder or other per
son having charge of the construction of any
building, structure, or other improvement, 6bould
be held to be the agent of the owner.
The provisions of the law should even extend
to the improvements of city or town lots, in
grading, filling, or otherwise improving the same.
The land, or 6uch interest as the owners may
have in the land, on which such building, struct
ure or improvement is made, with a convenient
space about the land, or so much as may be re
quired for the convenient use and occupation
thereof, to be determined by the court, should be
subject to the lien.
Theso liens should have a preference to a mort
gage lien, or any other that may have attached
subsequent to the time such building; structure
or improvement, shall be commenced; also, to all
other incumbrances of which the lien holder bad
no notice at the time such building, structure or
improvement was commenced.
All persons entitled to a lien under the law
should be required in a certain specified time to
file their claims, under oath with the Registrar of
Conveyances, and such claims should be recorded.
A time should be limited in which to bring
suits on such claims, and the details of the pro
ceedings in court to enforce 6aid lien should be
The lien should be considered a fumuUtive
remedy, and 6bould not impair th: tight of any
court of competent jurisdiction.

from Europe under the above title, and no words
of ours are needed to express the pleasure their
perusal has given. Through inadvertence, we
have neglected to mention No. 15 of the series,
which appeared in the issue for the present month.
It is a brief but graphic sketch of a reception held
by the Emperor and Empress of Germany at the
Imperial Schloss or Palace at Berlin. The princi
pal interest of the reception, to the stranger, of
course, gathers about the augast personages whose
presence gives the scene its importance ; but the
associations connected with the building, and the
remembrances of Prussia's eventful histary so in
timately connected with it, also add an interest to
the occasion that cannot be described in the short
limits of a single letter. Mr. Damon wields a
facile pen, and we always open the friend with
eagerness for a perusal of his Rambles." We
wish we could make room for some extracts from
his last number, even at the risk ol marring their
beauty by breaking their connection. What he
says, in the commencement, of the important part
the salon has played in European history is fami
liar to every attentive reader, for it recalls to
mind many instances in which female politicians
have helped to shape the course of events, and
thus left their impress upon the history of that
continent. The following extract from one of our
exchanges elucidates thi3 point very clearly upon
a little reflection : " It is openly said that the pres
ence of the Earl of Derby in the cabinet has en
couraged Russia to oppose the wishes of England,
and the London Week attributes this in great part
to the influence of the Countess of Derby over
her husband, and does not hesitate to fay that
the alliance of Lady Derby with Mme. Ignatieff
has been as much discussed In every European
capital as Bismarck's speech." Those who do not
read these Rambles " lose a pleasant intellec
Accident. An accident, which might have been
much more serious, occurred on Wednesday morn
ing to a little boy nine or ten years old, son of a
drayman in the employ of Mr. C. P. Ward. It ap
pears that the little fellow was taking a ride on
the dray which was leaving the yard, and on its
passing into the street he was thrown off, the hind
wheel passmjr over and breaking one of his lees
above the knee. No other blame attaches to the
driver than allowing the boy to incur the danger
of the ride.
North Kohala, Hawaii, )
April 20th, 1878. $
This is already an exceedingly rich district
agriculturally, and is destined to become of im
mense value in the production of sugar in the
near future. In extent oi yet unoccupied arable
land it is second only to the adjoining district of
Ilamakua, which is as large as the whole island
of Oahu. There are now six plantations in
active operation here, and there is room and
plenty of rich land at a higher altitude for
twenty-five or thirty more. Of course those who
came first have chosen the most eligible sites in
regard to elevation and with reference to points
of shipment at the beach, but there is a large
extent of unoccupied rich land further up to
wards the mountain, which will erelong find
occupants to develope the grand resources of this
magnificent district. On the coast line, as it
may be called, there is an opening for another
plantation, in and about the " big gulch " of
Pololu, where there are Borne three or four hun
dred acres of rich cane land, belonging to the
estates of the late Lunalilo and of II. II. Keeli
kolani. Doubtless the men and the money will
be forthcoming for this new enterprise, if those
having the management of the properties will
either sell or lease them on reasonable terms.
Pololu valley presents an admirable site for an
immense rice plantation a wide, rich bottom
with abundance of never-failing water.
The great drawback to the otherwise rapid
development of the rich resources of Kohala (in
a less degree however than in the case with
Ilamakua) is found in the fact that there is
SO GOOD HARBOR
In the district, and that the boat landings, of
which there are several, are generally unsafe and
difficult of access and frequently for periods of
weeks together quite unavailable. This is owing
to the formation of the shore and the direction of
the prevailing winds, and no amount of engineer
ing skill and expenditure of labor and money
can ever obviate the difficulty entirely. The
test of these landings is at Mahukona, at the
southern end of the district, but, quite distant
from the most of the plantations, from which it
is reached over a long and pretty rough road.
Mahukona is the only point in the district where
the steamer touches, and Mr. Wilder, the ener
getic owner of the Likelike has done the people
of Kohala and the public generally a valuable
service in deepening the boat channel and pro
viding a landing stage. The place itself is a
barren pile of rocks where no green things grows
within a radius of miles, and where the traveler
awaiting the arrival of the steamer can get
neither food nor water. This is however to be
remedied shortly, as we learn that through the
enterprise of the owner of the steamer a restau
rant will be established near the landing, where
tea and coffee, etc., can be had. Rut the only
real harbor for shipping in Kohala, where
vessel may safely lay in all weathers and where
there is no surf to be encountered in unloading
supplies and taking on produce, is the harbor of
Kawaibae, in South Kohala. This possesses al
those advantages ; but it is quite unavailable for
the Kohala planters, owing to its distance,
wide impracticable extent of rocky barren coun
try intervening between it and the plantations
Kawaihae on this side and Hilo Bay on the
windward are the only harbors which nature has
provided as outlets for the agricultural produc
tions of Hawaii, (leaving Kona out of the case
for the present). These are situated, the one at
the east and the othor at the west, having in the
interval between them immense tracts of fine
cane lands, by far the largest proportion of
which is yet untouched by the plow, lying waste
and unoccupied. What a mine of wealth is yet
to be developed in those lands ! What a teem
ing, thriving population they might be made to
support, and what marts of busy commercia
and mechanical industry would Hilo and Kawai
hae become, if only there was constructed
A LLNE OF RAILWAY,
Through these districts, to transport their sugars
to those two points of shipment ! Which shal
it be the railway first, to hasten the develop
ment of these lands or the slow progress of
strujrguDg improvement under great difficulties,
until a railway shall become an absolute neces
sity There are, of course, a plenty of imprac-
ticables to at once pronounce this idea of a rail
way in Hawaii as tbe mere dream of a visionary ;
but wo believe that when tbe subject is thorough
ly examined in all its bearings by men of prac
tical experience in the construction of railways
in other countries, and in view of the wonder
ful advance in engineering science as well as the
great reduction in tbe cost of such works in
these days the project will be found, with al
its difficulties, to be a practicable as well as a
profitable one. And just here we desire to
record our prophecy that tbe " Hilo, Ilamakua
and Kohala Railroad, will be built and actually
running before many years. Demand will in
evitably produce supply in the matter of trans
portation as well as production.
In district are all prospering. Our brief
ttr:y : '.-at two days has precluded our giving
: mere ' j;.n a paseiti' notice of each. Ibe pro
; t "o od drought which has been experienced else-
v: throughout the Islands during several
r .;s this v.;'r.t, r has scarcely affected Kohala,
v! en- the usual good showers, borne on the
i '..tnt traoe wind, have kept vegetation green
and flourishing. This is more noticeable tbe
further north one goes in the district ; about
Mahukona the country is pretty dry. The fir6t
mill we come to is that of Mr. R. B. Hind, who
it will be remembered was burned out some two
years ago. His new mill is a fine, well-appointed
one. There are some 700 to 800 acres of fair
cane land in tbe neighborhood of tbe mill, about
200 acres of which is planted and to be manu-
tactured on the
Whereby the operations of the planter and the
manufacturer are kept separate and distinct,
no doubt very much to their mutual advantage
This system prevails throughout the district,
with the exception of on but one plantation, and
we are assured works admirably. To the owner
of the mill it manifestly proves of great advtfn
tage to have tbe skilled workmen whom he is
compelled to employ each feeling a personal
interest in the success of the estate, proportioned
to the amount of crop which each has coming
on. A community of interests makes everybody
work with a will. Besides the mechanics em
ployed on the plantations, who as a general
thiDg each have their " patch " of from ten
acres upwards, in the cultivation of which they
take great pride, the natives of the district are,
in th aggregate, large cane groweis in the near
neighborhood of the plantations. As a natural
consequence they are thrifty, independent and
well-to-do, to an extent that is not to be observed
in other districts. In connection with Hind's
mill, Mr. James Woods and other foreigners are
prominent cultivators of cane.
Next to this establishment as we go eastward,
is the " Union Mill,' of which Mr. James
Kenton is the manager, for which some 200
acres of cane is in crop. The " Star Mill," by
a company, is yet to be built ; some 150 or more
acres of cane are being planted. We then come
to the " Kohala " plantation par excellence, the
oldest in tbe district and reputed to be one of
the best managed on the Islands, under the
charge of Mr. G. C. Williams. It is owned by
a corporation and its stock pays very handsomely.
The average crop is 200 acre6 per annum, belong
ing exclusively to the mill. They are now
grinding at this mill, making about ten tons a
day, Messrs. Atkins & Phelps on the Ualawa
estate, lately owned by Dr. J. Wight, have a
large and powerful mill and works nearly com
pleted. They have about 100 acres of ripe cane
ready for grinding, and will probably produce
about 250 acres per annum, mostly planted
parties outside of the mill-ownership, or, in
other words, on the co-operative plan. Further
inland towards the mountains, at an elevation of
some 2,000 feet, a new plantation is projected
bv Messrs. Atkins fc Phelps and Dr. inompson.
(the resident physician of Kohala), on which
some 300 acres will be planted during the ensu-
in2 vear. and to manufacture which a first-class
mill will be erected, to be styled the " Indepen
dent." Last in the list ia the fine mill of the
Hon. C. F. Hart, (Circuit Judge) also in process
of erection and nearly ready to commence opera
tions. Here there are some 150 acres about
ready to come off, mostly owned by natives but
we beard of one Chinaman as the owner of a
good sized and evidently well-kept patch. There
are about 100 Chinese in the district, mostly
emrloved on the Kohala " plantation.
Kohala is famous for tbe extraordinary yield of
its cane. We have heard of whole fields that
turned out six and a half tons to the acre ; but
think that if we put the average at four tons,
the reasonable planter will be satisfied.
As the plantations in this fertile region in
crease in numbers and in capacity for production.
Will be continually augmented. This is already
considerable, though of course much scattered,
and the people, with true Anglo-Saxon religious
instinct, have united in settling a clergyman
(the Rev. Mr. Atherton) of the Congregational
denomination as the pastor ot their cnurcn, ana
have pledged themselves for his support. An
English school is also talked of for the education
of the mine Generation, which is already Decom-
ing numerous. Unquestionably, there is a very
bright future before the people of this beautiful
district. i-- -
