N ATI ON ALHE ALTH.
Tlte Gazette speaks of our commanication of List
week as incendiary, malicious, and untruthful. We
admit we said some hard things, but we do not feel
called upon yet to take them back. If it is incen
diary to speak through the press of a public wrong,
which is already the general topic of conversation,
rd over which the community feel justly indignant,
' n we suppose we have done it ; but we are not
-- uTinced that this agrees with Webster's definition.
; ' fing no personal spite to Tent, we deny the charge
' malice ; but we still insist that if public officers
in their duty, they must not be surprised if the
lie find fault. Vie think too well of the commu
to believe that the health officers would lack its
xrt if they showed a disposition to discharge
' r duties thoroughly. Concerning falsehood, we
- - a that we hare every reason to believe that our
- "ority is as reliable as any the Gazette can pro-
; and cur eyes being as good as the average, we
Dt hesitate to testify of w'uat we have seen.
te are told that we should make private appeals
to the proper authorities. But repeated appeals have
been made, to which the authorities turn a deaf ear.
We doubt very much if the Board of Health would
Le willing to publish a list of the appeals made to
which no attention has been paid.
The district of liana, Maui, is quite generally
known to be a nest of lepers. We cannot believe
that the Board of Health is ignorant of the fact, but
what is it doing about it? A public officer on the
same island is a leper ; private and publis appeals
have been made to the authorities, but is the man
removed T Suppose you ask and see.
We insist that such shameful neglect of duty is an
outrage, and makes the name of Board cf Health a
by-word, when it should be a power.
We feel satisfied that when people abroad read of
the petitions which have been sent in to the Legisla
ture, praying that no more lepers be sent to Molokai,
and when visitors go home with the stories of what
they see and hear, we will create a better impression
by speaking out than by settling down into foolish
The matter La more a concern of the Hawaiians
than of foreigners ; from their mode of life the former
are more susceptible to the disease. The Hawaiian
leper has no scruples about mingling with bis
healthy friends, nor does he or she hesitate to offer bis,
- aer. services to foreigners. They will wash your
ex'hes. tend your babies, or pick your fruit without
i qulm of conscience.

SATURDAY. JW.-ir 11.
The readers of tin's journal will remember that
in the concluding paragraph of an article upon
the decrease of the native population of these Is
lands, published two weeks ago, we expressed
the hope of eood being able to give some inter
esting statistics upon the subject from a reliable
source. This we do ia our present issue, and we
are sure they will be read with pleasure bj every
one who feeh an interest in the welfare of the
Hawaiian people. Oar remarks are founded upon
the official Report of the Board of Health, pre
sented to the Legislative Assembly, now in ses
sion. As the figures are compiled from returns
to the Hoard, and carefully collated by the Sec
retary of the Board of Education, the facta de
veloped may be regarded as authentic, and ac
cepted without hesitation.
L'nder the head of Births and Deaths, the Re
port states that for the year 1877 the deaths ex
ceeded the births by 2G. The excess of deaths
for the biennial period, 1870 and 1877, has been
only 30-3. We ask careful attention to the fig
urjres of the first and last periods, beginning
with 18G8 and ending with 1S77. The number
of deaths for the first period was 0,879, or 121
fchort of 7,'00; while the number of births for
the same period was 4,207; ishowing the fright
ful excess of deaths over births, for that period,
of 2,012! The deaths for the period ending
1877 were 4,23-3, and the births 3,990, or an ex
cess of deaths of only 305 ! The deaths at the
leper settlement amounted to 181, for this term,
and for the Island of Molokai, 303, while the
births numbered 104. Excluding the lepers, the
deaths cn this Island exceeded the births by
only 18. As the excess of deaths haB steadily
diminished from 1808 to 1877, the figures of the
latter year which denote a turning in the tide,
have a peculiar interest. Four of the Islands
show an excess of births in 1877, namely, Ha
waii, three; Oahu, one hundred and three; Ka
uai, one, and Niihau, one.
The following are the figures of each of the
five biennial periods, covering the last ten years,
and can be accepted as the most complete of any
before published. Deaths at the leper settlement
on Molokai arc included.
Total number of deaths in 1SCS and lSe9 6,879
" births ' " 4,267
Excess of deaths for tlte twoyeais... 2.612
Total number of deaths in 1S70 and 1S71 7,321

Excess of deaths for the two years... 1,37
T'.tal number of deaths in 176 and 187" 4.295

Excess cf deaths for the two years 305
We see in these figures good grounds for hop
ing that our downward course has come to an
end, and that the next two years will show a gain
on all the Islands. Let the sanitary laws be
carried out, without fear or favor, and the long
wished for, long-prayed for, blessed era will be
sure to reward us for all our sufferings and sacri
fices, at last. Our friends abroad will rejoice
with us, and even the timid ones among U9 will
be able to dismiss their fears.

BIENNIAL REPORT OF THE MINISTER
We continue our comments, this week, upon
the Report of the Minister of Finance :
The remarks of His Excellency upon the sub
ject of Roads and Bridges arc very full and clear,
and worthy of careful consideration by the
Assembly. In no way can a liberal appropria
tion of public money be more wisely granted
than in affording the Government all necessary
funds to open up the many fertile districts now
comparatively inaccessible to the benefits of com
merce, which would be sure to follow an easy
and convenient transit to and from the different
ports and landings. This view of the case is so
plain that it needs no elucidation. One obsta
cle to improvement specified by the Minister
should be taken in hand by the Assembly and a
remedy promptly applied. This obstacle is the
excessive price demanded by the owners of lands
required for the opening of roads and building of
bridges, which generally amounts to a bar to all
improvement, and prevents the Government from
undertaking works urgently called for. A law
empowering the Minister to condemn the lands
necessary for the public use and providing for
reasonable compensation, the amount to be fixed
by arbitrators, could be easily framed so as to
protect the rights and interests of all. It is a
pity that the development of the country should
be hindered by obstacles of this kind. Land
owners injure their own interests by this "dog-in-the-manger
" policy, and this they cannot fail
soon to discover. The full development of our
resources, and consequent increase ot revenue,
can never be realized until all the facilities re
quired by the agriculturist are afforded for the
transportation of his produce to a convenient
point of shipment. Money, borrowed if neces
sary, and faithfully applied for these objects, will
be wisely expended, and the interest and princi
pal will not be an onerous burden for the nation
to bear in view of the increase of revenue sure
There is a wide district of country on the
northeast coast of Hawaii, containing many
thousands of acres of land suitable for the cultiva
tion of sugar, coffee and other products which, if
made accessible, would, His Excellency says,
speedily become one of the richest portions of
the Kingdom. In this district are large tracts of
fertile government lands that now yield little or
no returns and which are really unsaleable. Lo
cated on the windward part of the Island, and
possessed of no good harbor, there is no access
to this fine district by Eca, and unless some mode
of land carriage is contrived, its capacities must
remain undeveloped. The Minister says it is be
lieved a narrow gauge railroad could be built,
and that it would prove a profitable investment.
A road Jof three or three and a half feet gauge
could be put in running order for eay $12,000
per mile, or $000,000 for the fifty miles required,
and would afford the necessary facilities for the
transportation of produce and passengers. The
interest on the sum at 7 per cent., would amount
to $42,000, a sum easily borne, if the prospective
business of the road should be realized. JL fair
estimate of the earnings of the road, after it had
got into working order, and which would increase
with the improvements of the district, would be,
for 300 working days, at $200 a day, $00,000
per annum; and we think it reasonable to put
the income at $300 a day, after it has been in
operation twelve monthe. Deducting Sundays,
the actual working days would be 313, which at
200 a day would give the sum of $02,000 an
amount exceeding the interest by $20,000. If
the attention of capitalists could be directed to
the capacitities of this promising district, we
think the money for building a road would be
f-iti'i coming with little delay. We believe the
Government could guarantee the interest without
-'h Excellency eays the road tax in all the dis
tricts is insufficient to keep the roads in order,
and that the road labor, as administered, is but
little more than a sham. He gives the reason
why it is so, and recommends that the labor
Fhould be commuted for money. This would be
better both for the people and for the roads, for
in case of such commutation the Government
would have funds to be specially applied for this
object, and could see that fair labor was bestowed
upon the roads so far aa the money so commuted
would hold out. A change in the law regulating
the road labor cannot but be conducive to the
general welfare. We hope the members of the
Assembly will act upon this subject promptly,
wisely and fairly to all the interests involved.
' The great Cre of the 18th of December last
. has called attention to the needs of the Fire De-
j partment for additional and more powerful ap-
' raratus than we have had heretofore. The Min
ister recoguizes this want, and has inserted an
item in the estimates for the purchase of a steam
fire-engine, which, added to the one already or
dered by the Chinese residents, will afford prop
erty owners in this city a great feeling of relief
from the danger that so constantly threatens the
town with destruction.
We now arrive, in Ilia Excellency's Report, at
one of the most important subjects that has ever
enaed the attention of the Government, that is,
the survey of Government Lands and a general
survey of the country, founded upon an accurate
system of triangulation. When we consider how
the whole fabric of eocicty rests almost entirely
upon the tenure or lands, and that accurate
boundaries arc so absolutely essential to all the
rights of ownership, the importance of this sub
ject cannot be over-estimated. There must be
complete and perfect stability of titles to the
soil, for all permanent improvements or invest
ments depend upon this qualification. No one
will spend or invest money upon lands with a
clouded title, nor will any one buy from those
who cannot show a clear and undoubted owner
ship and right to sell. Money expended in em
ploying surveyors to map out the boundaries of
the different lands of the Kingdom, is money well
spent. Mr. Alexander's report shows good work
done during the biennial period. He makes
some suggestions for the continuing of the work,
and states that the sum of $21,000 is needed for
His Excellency gives the particulars of the
building and sale to Mr. S. G. Wilder, of the
steamer Likelike, and says there arc good reasons
for wishing to see a second steamer in our island
waters. Proposals have been made to the Gov
ernment to put on a steamer similar to the Like
like, but smaller, to run to Kauai at a subsidy of
$500 per month. Whether this would be fair to
the owner of the Likelike may be questioned,
that is, if other parties have made the offer
The appropriation for anchors, buoys and
landings has been overdrawn. Improvements in
this direction need a liberal sum, and money ex
pended for the development of the business and
resources of the Kingdom, is not thrown away.
The repairs and erection of wharves and Govern
ment buildings may be considered as belonging
to this branch of the Report.
The Honolulu Water Works have cost the
Government, up to the present time, $109,088.
The receipts have been $28,000, and the expenses,
$9,000 leaving a clear gain for the biennial
period of $19,000, or an interest of about 9 per
cent, upon the money invested. The Minister
enters fully into the question of water supply
for the city, and points out the various sources
and plans by which it may be increased. His
Excellency evidently recognizes the fact that
" cleanliness is next to godliness," and desires
that we Bhall not be stinted in our supply of this
necessary element. The public will heartily sec
ond his wishes on this point. If any extensive
enlargement of the works is undertaken, the
Government suggest that the franchise of sup
plying the city with water be conveyed to private
parties, or the creation of a " Water Board,"
with a power to deal with the whole subject, and
that the cost be levied on the property of Hono
lulu. If this last plan should be adopted, free
water would soon follow. In view of necessary
works for an increase of the water supply, an
appropriation of $40,000 is asked for.
Ilis Excellency enters largely into the subject
of Immigration, noting what has been done by
the Board in the past, and what is to be hoped
for in the future. Of the immigrants arriving
in the Kingdom, over 3,000 are Chinese, that is,
nearly 0 per cent, of the population consists of
these people, about all of whom are males. The
Government have sought in different directions,
to supply our wants, but hitherto without the
desired success. The East Indias, Madeira Is
lands, and Islands of the South Pacific have been
looked to with a good deal of hope, especially
the two latter, and a vessel was expected in Feb
ruary last as the result of Capt. Mist's mission
to the Fijis, in August preceding. For some
reason this vessel has not yet arrived. The Min
ister says his recital of the operations of the
Board describes hopes entertained, rather than
results accomplished, and recognizing the neces- j
sitics ot the Kingdom as to population and labor,
recommends an appropriation of $50,000 for
In view of the great advance in material pros
perity, and the commercial prospects of the
country, Uia Excellency has not deemed it neces
sary to recommend any increase of taxation.
This fact may lead to efforts in the Assembly to
lift some of the burdens now so much disliked by
the people, particularly the horse and dog tax.
The Minister closes his Report with an expres
sion in which all who love the country and peo
ple will heartily unite: 44 The life of the nation
is an object well worthy of our endeavors and
deliberations," and to the wisdom and sound
judgment of the Assembly he commits it. May
His Lxcelleney s hopes be fully realized !

AVe admire modesty. We are a modest body our
selves, and willingly praise that quality in others.
When we speak or write upon any subject, we en
deavor to make ourselves acquainted with it, so tnat
our modest utterances shall not be construed as im
Tiprtincnt or sillv. A writer does not add to the
force of his arguments by indulging in fulsome lad-
ations of individuals, whatever their rank, nor does
he gain the popular ear by advocating a policy or
measure that conflicts with the convictions or senti
ments of the people. The Hawaiians, like all other
people, have their feelings and their prejudices, and
he who would gain their confidence must have some
knowledge of their character and condition. He need
not pander to their prejudices, but he must know
and respect their feelings, or his labor is vain.
To point our modest moral, the reader is referred
to the remarks of the Gazette, in its issue or Wed-
of Immigration. It
j - f
says : In the first place we differ with those who
favor the schemes of obtaining people from the East
Indies, Madeira Islands, or Polynesian Group, as
chimerical as well as impracticable " modest.
44 We suggest, as the next best thing to be
done, to try the experiment of importing
laborers from the sugar and rice growing States of
North America, and those people " the
Southern negroes 44 would naturally assimilate with
How does the Gazelle know that this assimilation
would be so easy and natural ? Not from any knowl
edge he has gained from the Hawaiians themselves.
Miscegenation with the African is as objectionable to
the Hawaiian as to the Caucasian race. We recom
mend the Gazette to enlighten itself upon this point,
and when it has done so, we shall be ready to praise
it for even so slight an evidence of its capacity for

MIXED PAINTS. Your Committee has l.een at
cnnsideratile pains to come to an equitalile decision on the
claims of the three exhibits competing under this head. The
awards claimed being for the HKsi' UEADV MIXED l'AINT.
" The points to be determined come under thre.- heads :
i IKST hat means, if unv liavi l..n tn neriire
I the continued suspension of the pigment in the liuuid. and
how lar have they been lurrestlul.
" 'Secosd What are the ti orkimj iualitim, and which
would secure a durable unit opaque tout, at trait trprnrr.
Third What are the respective merits nf the compet
niK paint as to permanency and durability as an .utide
The third point is dropped from competition lv the Com
mittee, after testing on the first and second points, and Un
report continues . As regards the third point, the Commit
tee took pains to Inspect a number of houses where the 'Rub
ber' and the Averill had been used, aud also procured a large
amount of testimony on the subject Irom varii us sources.
" The most prominent objection to the ordinary Oil I'aint,
is that after a ctrtain time, especially if exponed to tin
weather, it becomes brittle, cracks, and tends to wale off, at
the same time becoming more or less 'chaluy on the surlace.
This is owing partly to an absorption of the oil by the wood,
and partly to a true 'weathering out of the dry od from the
surface, thus leaving the pigment exjMmed."
Referring to the "Rubber l'uiut" the rep..rt continues:
" the testimony goes to show that it is, en n more liahlr tu
peel off than Ordinary Paint, or than the A "trill faint.
As to US durability, the Committee are of opinion that the
short time during which it has been used, ds not admit of a
fair comparison with the Averill Paint.
"In the Averill I'aint a kind of tarnish tio.lv i i-ivrn.
apart from the pigment by the Silicate oj Soda, so that even
its visible covering power does not fairly represent the actual
amount of protective covering given by a coat of it. from
testimony collected, the committee are of opinion Ihut it
has proved itself superior to ordinary Oil I'aint, in the preser
vation of a fair surface under exjumure to the weather, both
as regards the tendency to crack, and the absence of 'el.ultl.
ness'. In view of all the facts, the committee award to the
'Averill I'aint' the Medal for General Excellence as a 'Mixed
The following is a specimen of the thousands of tentimoni.
als sent ui by those who have used the Averill Mixed I'aint,
and the testimony f such names admit of no question as to
its superior merits.

my favorable opinion of your paint. I can only say that time
confirms the good impressions 1 then hail, and that the Ili.-h
School Building in this city, which I Tainted with the Averill
Paint three years ago, is the best kind of evidence of it supe
riority over all other paints. Many prominent citizens have
used your paint here, and all seem as well sutUfied as I am.

Francisco. Gentlemen: Since our town was started, three
years ago, we have observed closely, and have had an excel
lent opportunity of comparing the Averill Paint with White
Lead and Oil, and other mixed paints. Our experience has
been, that the buildings painted with While Lead and the so
called Rubber I'aint, have scaled off and chalked, while the
Averill Paint has stood firm, showiug to-day as solid as ever,
and we have not heard a single complaint from any one of thu
numerous purchasers of yur paint.
Very respectfully, V. D. VAWTEIl t Co.

In reply to your letter I have to slat that for mora than sn

that tune carefully observed its application and Use, and Iroiu
practical knowledge can certify to Its unrivaled excellence,
l'uring my six years acquaintance with it, there has not come
to my knowledge a siniilK instance of a failure in any rase
where it has been used. All to whom I hare supplied it
unite in commending it lor its suM-rior claims over all other
Paints now in use The Averill Paint externally used, nr. In
other words, exposed to the action of the wrather, net her
rubs off. nor changes color, as do other Paints, and will retain
its freshness and adhesive property for years. Pure U-ad ami
Oil wilt in a short time become dry, and are easily rubbed oil,
the loss of oil leaves thu lead in a dry, oxidised state. As s
matter of economy the claims of the Averill Mixed paint t
popular appreciation and general use are beyond question.
A house properly painted with it once will be better preserves),
und present a neater appearance at the expiration of seven
years, than it would ir twice coated with 1,' ad and Oil I'alnla
