FRIDAY. MAY 17, 157.
. Refobts from all the Island are generally favorable to the
agar anj other iclereu. Occasionally unexpected losses
be.all the planter, ajiint which no foresight or care can pro
vide. In this instance we allude u the fires on the Kaalaea
Plantation, an account of which will be found elsewhere in our
column. We think planters would he wise to protect thtir
crops in the ground by insurance (which we believe can be
done) as well as their mill and other buildings, for by so do
ing they would not be crippled by a sudden disaster of lire or
flood. We venture to throw out the hint: it is lr them to
consult their own interests in the matter.

SATURDAY. MAY 13.
We can well remember the wonder and curi
osity excited in the public mind at the announce
ment of the invention of the Electric Telegraph
more than thirty years ago. The etrugglesof
its inventor, Professor Morse, are matters of
history, familiar to every reader. After Lis suc
cess was demonstrated by the successful working
of a line between Washington and Baltimore,
and the value of the invention to the business
interests of the country fully thown, lines were
built connecting all the principal citiee, and to
day not only the United States, but the whole
civilized world is intersected in every direction
by lines of wires, and the electric telegraph has
become as great a public necessity as railrop
and steamboats. For rapid communicate :
tween distant points, land lines and oce'.,
have superseded steam, as the la' ;

day's marketing from her kitchen while superin
tending her husband's breakfast. And how
nicely Saulsbury and Gortschakoff, by a little
friendly talk and mutual explanation through
the telephone, could ecttle the Eastern Question
without carving up Turkey and setting Europe
by the ears ! In short, no limit can be specified
to its conveniences. By the Phonograph, eer
iuons, lectures, and Fourth of July orations may
be bottled up for the edification of generations
yet unborn ! This id no exaggeration. It is a
simple statement of what is actually transpiring
at the present moment the bottles, of course
to be put aside for future use !
Edison, the inventor of the Phonograph, being
ai-kcJ to what uses the instrument could be put
replied, " Several. 1. For dictating. It will take
the place of 6hort hand reporters. 2. For read
ins;. A first class elocutionist will read one of
Dickens' novels into the phonograph, when it
will be printed on a eheet ten inches square.

guages. If Stanley had had one he could have
obtained for the world all the dialects of Centra
Africa ! 7. It will be used to make toys talk
8. In fact, its utility will be endless." We
should think so.
As an instrument of precision, it is already
established that the telephone is the most deli
cate test ot an electric current which is known
to the scientist, and it is thought that one of
these instruments, placed at the receiving end
will enable messages to be sent through 6ub
marine cables much more rapidly than at present
Why can we not benefit by this invention?
The outlay would be trifling ; the advantages
many. A line of wire from the upper part of
Xuuanu Valley to the wharf could be put up
for 200, and a party stands ready to furnish
the telephones at a rental of $10 per annum,
for each instrument used. And what a great
convenience it would be not only to the commer
cial interests of the port, but to the public at
large, if Coco Head were connected with the
Post Office by telephone. We hope the Ministry
may be induced to take the subject into consi
deration so far as to insert an item in the Appro
priation Bill for this object. The amount neces
sary would not be large, probably $1,500 or
$2,000 would be sufficient. If this should not
be enough to keep it going, we think the public
would cheerfully assist.
In connection with this subject we would di
rect attention to the notice of Mr. C. II. Dickey
On Friday last, the Hon. Mr. Gibson (Lahaina)
c Cere J a resolution to the effect that a committee of
thirteen be appointed by the President, to have
power to send for persons and papers and to inquire
into the operation of all laws concerning the Board
of Health and to prevent the spread of leprosy; alio
to examine all hospitals and to report within twenty
days. Mr. Gibson's remarks in support of his
resolution were IeDgthy and valuable, and were lis
tened to by the House with marked attention. We
give the speech in full in the supplemental issue of
to-day's paper. The committee appointed under the
resolution consists of the following: Hon. Messrs.
Gibson. W. O. Smith, Halstead, Mahoe. Nawahi, W.
K. Castle, Nakaleka, Kaai, Martin, Kupau, Kaiai
kawaha, Kauai, J. Moanauli. It was resolved to
commence the consideration of the Appropriation
Bill on the 24th of May. This looks like business,
and if no disturbing elements arise, the session need
not last longer than two months. There was no ses
sion of the Assembly on Saturday, but many of the
members availed themselves of an invitation from
the owner of the steamer Kilauea-hou to visit that
vessel on her trial trip.
The first thing on Monday was a petition from
Koolaupoko, that the lepers at Molokai be all sent
back to their former homes. Hon. Mr. Kaai
(Nobles) read first time a proposed amendment to
the Constitution, providing that Representatives be
elected every eight years. Hon. Mr. Bickerton
(Hamakua) gave notice of a bill to amend the law
r3specting rewards to police and other prosecutors.
Hon. Mr. Halstead (Makawao) read first time a bill
to amend the law in regard to acknowledgments of
contracts of service. Hon. Mr. Malo (Honolulu)
read a first time a bill to repeal the act to regulate
the currency, passed in lob, and to re-enact the
act of 1872 on the same subject. The bill providing
for the appointment of a Police Magistrate at Wai
luku, Maui, was on its third reading, referred to the
Among the petitions presented on luesday was
one from Honolulu, praying that all restrictions
may be removed from the sale or spirits to native
Hawaiians. Quite a discussion arose as to what
should be done with this petition, the Han. Mr.
Uaauna (liana, A.aui) moving that its consider.
ation be indefinitely postponed. It was finally laid
on the table until the member for Honolulu (Mr.
Malo) shall briog in a bill in accordance with the
desires of the petitioners, as expressed in their own
words to make rum free ' e hoonoa ka rama.
The people of Wailuku, Maui, pray that the number
of soldiers be reduced and the duty of standing
guard be performed by police. South Kona wants
the horse-tax reduced to fifty cents. Under the
head of resolutions was one directing the sergeant-at-arms
to furnish each member with 200 two-cent
postage stamps. (The spirit of economy and Spar-
I tan self-denial which we noted on the fifth day of
' the session, had thus, on the twelfth, begun to

On motion of the Hon. Mr. Bickerton the Minister

correspandence connected with the mission of Capt.
Mist to the South Pacific.
Among the petitions presented and appropri
ately referred on Thursday, was one from Chinese
residents of Honolulu, praying that provision may
be made by government for ttie expenses of a
steam Ere engine to be imported at their cost ;
also one from Wailuku, Maui, for the repeal of the
'Act to Mitigate." The Hon. Mr. Paniani (Hono
lulu) read first time a bill to repeal the law for
bidding the sale ot intoxicating drinks to native
Hawaiians. The Hon. D. Malo (Honolulu) offered
a resolution to the effect that the Chief Justice be
required to appear before the House and reply to
questions that may be propounded to bim by mem
bers as to the construction of Articles 43 and 47
of the Constitution. The Hon. gentleman sup
ported his resolution in a vigorous speech much
to the edification oi a crowded lobby in which
he emphatically declared that the Assembly was
the highest authority in the Kingdom. But the
resolution was indefinitely postponed, members
being assured that the proper way to get the opin
ion of the Supreme Court was to propound ques
tions in writing. The bill to repeal Chapter 13,
laws of 1876 and to re-enact Section C73 of the
Civil Code share of witnesses in fines was passed
on a final reading. The bill to give jurisdiction
to Police and Distiict Justices in cases of false
imprisonment, was on its second reading indefi
nitely postponed. The bill to regulate advances
to bound servants was ordered to be engrossed
for a third reading on Monday. The bill to tax
beef cattle 25 cts., a head, was indefinitely post
poned. Yesterday, under the head of resolutions, was
one by the Hon. Mr. Kupau Koolau that the
Commission appointed under the Act for the de
velopment of the resources of the Kingdom, be
requested to report as to what they have done;
by the Hon. Mr. Pilipo N. Kona that the Minis
ter of Finance be requested to state the amount
of American goods entered free under the Treaty
of Reciprocity, and the amount of British goods
that has paid duty since the passage of that
treaty. The Minister pointed out in the printed
report where these questions were answered, but
nevertheless, the resolution was adopted. By
Hon. Mr. Hanuna liana inquiring of the Com
missioners of Crown Lands as to the number and
quantity of said lands, the revenue received
therefrom during the past biennial period, and
all matters pertaining to the Commission. The
bill providing for the return of Chinese coolies
to their homes, was referred to a special com
mitttee. The bill to make all fisheries free to
the people, came np on its second reading and
was, after some discussion, ordered for Com
mittee of the Whole next Tuesday, lhe pro
posed amendment to Article 60 of the Constitu
tion, representatives to be elected every eight
years was indefinitely postponed.
To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser
Sir : In your issue of Mav 4th i9 an advertise
ment that on May 25th will be sold " The Choice
of Lots in Kapiolani Park." Having, like many
others who reside off Oahu, an interest in said
park, I take ii upon myself to make a few remarks
on the injustice of such a proceeding. When the
Park Association was formed, it was proposed to
lay out a race track, carriage drive, and such re
serves as would be required for grand staud
booths and ornamental grounds. After such re
servation was made, the remaining land was to be
laid out in lots, in number corresponding to the
number of shareholders, or shares in said park.
For each share a member took, be was entitled to
one lot. Now as some lots are of more value than
others, according to situation, the most fair and
equitable way would be, to have the lots numbered
on the map of the park, and draw lots tor tnem
by which means parties interested in the park
who live on adjacent islands would have an t-qual
chance with those who reside m Honolulu. Where
as by the sale of choice of lots as advertised, parties
in Honolulu have an advantage over us. They
have a map to refer to, they can go on to the park
and choose a locality to their liking, and leave to
outsiders what they discard. For so small a thing
as a share in the Kapiolani Park that we will leave
our homes and business, cannot be expected. It
was not for the sake of obtaining a lot that parties
paid their $50-sbare. but to kokua an undertaking
that would make Uouoiulu more pleasant and at
tractive; but since by the paying of our fifty dol
lars we are entitled to a lot, let us have an equal
chance with those who live in town of getting a
front one, and not take the leavings of the llono
lulu or rather I should " Kapiolani Park Ring."
Let us have fair play Mr. Editor, cast lots for
our chances, and take what falls to us. Trusting,
Mr. Editor, that yon will find space for this growl,
I am yours, &c, oiiarkholdkh.
We think our correspondent is somewhat in
error, for this matter of the disposition of the lots
has been a subject of much consideration, and the
plan hit upon bna been deemed the most equita
ble. A lottery would lead to great dissatisfaction,
and cause an unlimited amount of grumbling.
For the benefit of our correspondent we would say
that the present plan, viz: selling the choice ot
lots by auction, is endorsed by a very large ma
jority of the shareholders, rrom what we learn
every ioi ironis on me main avenue, ana mere is
no such thing as a back lot. in tact, il tbere be
such a thing as choice, it is merely a matter of per
sonal fancy. We hardly tnink tnere is a " Kapio
lani rark King," lor tne spoils are very limited;
and inasmuch as Honolulu shareholders represent
nine-tenths of the entire number of shares taken,
we think their voice should govern. The whole
matter is not worth writing about, and the above
remarks are made merely to set our correspondent
riirht, and to do justice by the directors. Editor

to his character, as a merchant who has hitherto
been noted for dealine on the square: The offer
consists of a proposal to sell an article which is in
constant demand, and on which the firm will place
"adj brand of your own you may require." The
article specified is sold here under well-known
brands, which have for years established its reputa
tion and won the confidence of consumers, and to
dace one of those brands upon an article which U
offered for a good deal less than half the Honolulu

MIXED PAINTS. Your Committee has been at
considerable paios to come to an equitable decision on the
claims of the three exhibits competing under this head. The
awards claimed being fur the BEST KE DV MIXED PAINT.
The points to be determined come under thre.- heads :
' First What means, if any, have been used to secure
the continued suspension of the pigment in the liquid, mxl
bow far have they been successful.
Second What are the working qualitie, and which
would secure a durable and opaque eoat. at leant ripentr.
Third What are the respective merits of the compet
ing paints as to permanency and durability at an outiide
The third point is dropped from competition by the Com
mittee, after testing on the first and second paints, and the
report continues ; ' As regards the third point, the Commit
tee took pains to inspect a number of houses where lhe 'Rub
ber and the Averill' had been used, and also procured a large
amount of testimony on the subject irom various sources.
'She most prominent objection to the ordinary Oil Paint,
is thai after a certain time, especially if exposed to the
weather, it becomes brittle, cracks, and tends to scale off, at
the same time becoming more or less 'chalky on the surface.
This is owing partly to an absorption of the oil by the wood,
and partly to a true 'weathering out' of the dry oil from the
surface, thus leaving the pigment excised."
Referring to the "Rubber Paint" the report continues:
"the testimony goes to show that it is, even more liable tti
peel off than Ordinary Paint, or than the Averill Paint.
As to its durability, the Committee are or opinion Hint the
short time during which it has been ued, does not admit of a
fair comparison with the Averill Paint.
"Io the Averill Paint a kind f rarninh body Is given,
apart from the pigment by the Silicate of Soda, so that even
lis 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 thut it
has proved itself superior to ordinary Oil Paint, in the preser
vation of a fair surface under exposure to the weather, both
as regards the tendency to crsck, and the absence of 'rhalkl
nets'. In view of all the facts, the committee award to the
Averill Paint' the Medal for General Excellence as a 'Mixed
The following is a specimen of the thousands of tektimoni

Francisco, Gentlemen I had occasion a year ago to express
my favorable opinion of your paint. I can only say that time
confirms the good Impressions I then had, and that the Iliph
School Building in this city, which I I'ainted 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 a well sstisfipd as I am.

Francisco. Gentlemen: Since our town was started, three
years ago, we have observed closely, and have had an exrel
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 White Lead and the so
called Kubber Paint, have scaled off and chalked, while the
Averill Paint has stood firm, showing to-day as solid as ever,
and we have not heard a single complaint from any one of the
numerous purchasers of your paint.
Very respectfully, V. D. VAWTEU ts. Co.

I'lacervllle. October 7, 1S75. California Paint Co. Uentsi
In reply to your letter I have to slate that for mora than an
years 1 have dealt in and used your Paint. 1 have during
that time carefully observed its application and use, ami from
practical knowledge ran certify to its uurlvalrd excellence.
During my aix years acquaintance with it, there lias not couie
to my knowledge a single instance of a failure In any rase
here it lias been used. All to whom I have supplied it
unite in commending it for its suwrior claims over all nlher
Paints now in use The A verlll Paint externally used, or. In
other words, exposed to the action of the weather, neither
rubs off. nor changes color, as do other Paints, and will retain
iia freshness and adhesive property for years. I'ure Iar! ami
Oil will in a short tune become dry, and are easily rubbed offj
the loss of oil leaves the lead III a dry, oxidised state. Asa
matter of economy the claims of the Averill Mixed Paint to
popular appreciation and general use are beyond question,
A house properly painted with it once will be better preserved,
and present a neater appearanre at the expiration of seven
years, than it would if twice coated with Lead and Oil Paints
in use. Ho well assured and convinced am I ol Its established
right to this distinction over all kinds, that had I filly houses
of my own to be painted, the "Averill," alone should be niy
choice and be used. Yours, very truly,
