FRIDA I". JUNEU, 1879.
Thus ia but UMe charge to note in the aspect cf commer
cial or agricultural matter the past week.
An Interesting letter from Kau, publlabcJ ia another col
umn, touches upon a sntject which is certain to attract gen
eral attention- The point is this: that there is a vast reser
voir of water in the f rest belt which surrounds the IslnnJ of
Hawaii at an elevation cf from 2,000 to 4.000 feet above the
level of the sea, abounding in perenriial springs with quite
sufficient water lor the supply or the lower lands near the
coast. No doubt a similar stale of things will be fcund to pre
vail cd the olher islands, and the problem will Le to devise a
cheap method to convey the water to the points where it is
needed. Ditch ing is too precarious, ircn pipes too costly, but
Wyckcff". Wooden Pipe would seem to be just the thing
seeded as to cheapness and durability. The attention of the
public is especially directed to the letter of our ccrrespon"er.t.
The eniire interests of the country have suffered too severely
in the past from drought to allow any means of mitigating its
injurious effects to pass unnoticed or untried, and here may be
at least a partial remedy for the evils we have heretofore expe
rienced from this cause.

The pKocKEDixcs in the Assembly during one
i or two days of the past week, have been 6ome
i thing quite out of the uninteresting routine of
; worthless epeech-making over impossible bills
ana resolutions which has to a great extent
so far characterized the present eession. The
Committee of Finance, it will be remembered,
some ten dajs since brought in a report on the
accounts of government departments, wherein
they severely criticized those of the Attorney
General and the Minister of the Interior, and
declared the conduct of Ministers " deserving of
the gravest censure."' A eub-commiseion was
appointed by the Assembly and the Ministers,
consisting of three experts selected from the
community at large, whose report, laid before
the Assembly on Monday last, will be found in
full in the supplement accompanying to-day's
Advertiser. In discussing the final disposition
to be made of the Committee's report, (with
exists cannot continue forever ; and how v .;?1 it
end ? There has been no ardent spirit amo- . -he
natives. The native law is stated to be that tl . Eu
ropeans may take epirits in their own tenfr:, but
must not take any outside. Upon another jjoint
the correspondent writes thus : 44 1 have asked
the Maories how it is that Ilauhauism has not
developed itself in the way of educating the
children, who are no.v growing up as ignorant as
their ancestors five hundred years ago. To this
they reply that our education, like our Cbristi
anity, ia not euited to them. No boy who has
ever been educated in English style has turned
out well. He has never had the qualities of a
great Maori chief, and has never been able to
gain the respect of the Maori people."
After the conferences with Tawhiao, Sir
George and Mr. Sheehan visited Rewi.at his settle
ment near at the PuDiu river. This chief pro
mised to uee all his influence to bring about a
satisfactory understanding with the other chiefs
and tribes who still held aloof.
Rewi is to be called to the Legislative Council,
and will take a eeat in the Upper House as soon
as a final settlement is made.

two reports will show, that while the Ministers
are not accused of anything like dishonesty in
the management ofrthe public funds, yet they
are distinctly charged with malefeasance in office,
and particularly as to two departments Now
the adoption of the Finance Committee's report,
without amendment or qualification, by a ma
jority of the Assembly, is unquestionably a vote
of censure on the Ministry, would be so regarded
in any other country governed by a Constitu
tional monarchy, and the necessary result would
be a change of Ministry. Here, however, all
the circumstances are decidedly exceptional, and
it is quite futile to undertake to apply to our
people the rule that would obtain in Great
.Britain, for instance. Political parties, in the
sense as understood there, are simply impossible
here. On important questions concerning the
government of the country, there are no differ
ences of opinion here, of any moment. While
the investigations of the Committee of Finance
have shown that reforms are imperatively needed
in the conduct of details in some of the offices of
government, the accomplishment of which
must result from the investigation now made,
and for which result Ministers will be held re
sponsible by the country yet public opinion has
not by any means abated its confidence in the
integrity, patriotism and prudence of the present
Ministry, and, deprecating the demoralizing
effect of frequent changes in government, sees no
necessity for a change at the present juncture.

The news received from this flourishing Colony
by the recent mail is of unusual interest. For
many years, there has been a great deal of
trouble with the Maoris on the BnhWt rf innrt
titles, and we believe that all the wars between
them and the Colonists have arisen directly or
indirectly from this cause. Some twenty years
ago a movement took place among the natives of
a very important character, which was the deter
mination to unite the tribes by choosing a King,
and organizing a land league to prevent the
sale of land of to Europeans. Causes of irrita
tion arose, and war broke out, the most serious
contest takinz place in Waikato. whpr tho,
strength of the King party lay. The result was
that the native power was broken, and large dis
tricts of land were confiscated in different parts
of the Island. The largest confiscations took
place in the district of Waikato. The theory of
the Kingites was that the King held all the lands
for the people, and that no tribe or section of a
tribe could sell land to Europeans. Tawhiao,
the King, issued decrees forbidding all selling,
leasing, or surveying of lands ; and the Kingites
would not in any way recognize the authority
of the Colonial Courts tosettlo their claims to the
soil. It was difficult to keen nn thia n.;f:

to the settlers. In other districts, at a distance
from Tawhiao, the tribes which had acknow
ledged him began to sell their lands, and to allow
A 1 I . 1
rwu3 tu ue maue mrougu their country. Claims
for titles to lands were made before the Native
Lands Courts, and as the Kingites refused to
appear in courts of which they denied the juris
diction, they in many cases lost their lands. In
evitably, a feeling of unjust treatment was cre
ated in their minds. They were gradually
weakened, but still they held out. At intervals
they murdered settlers engaged in cultivating
lands of which they considered themselves un
It has been apparent for years that the true
policy for the Colony to pursue was to come to
some arrangement with Tawhiao by which the
native opposition could be removed without cre

laming me session oi jsaturuay, a report was
received from the CommiUee of Finance, with a
bill to repeal Chap. 58 of the Laws of 1S76, to
increase the import duties on certain articles."
The bill was laid on the table to await the re
port or me Committee on Foreign Affairs. A
resolution was offered by the Minister of the In
tenor, appropriating the sum of 3,000 to refit
the schooner Storm Bird for another voyage.
The consideration of this was deferred until tbe
special committee's report on the late expedi
tion shall have been received. (This report was
presented on Monday and will be found else
where in our columns.)
On Monday nothing of importance was done
beyond discussing tbe report of tbe Committee
on the expedition of the Storm Bird, duriog
which the Hon. Mr. Wilder strongly urged the
policy of refitting the vessel for another voyage,
in order to improve the opportunity, thus pre
sented, of procuring immigrants. The report
was made the order of the day for Thursday.
On Wednesday, the President laid before tbe
Assembly a communication from the Hon. C. C.
Harris, Chief Justice, enclosing an Act to repeal
Section 5 ot Chap. 29 of the laws of 1872, re
specting the taxing of attorneys' fees in the
courts ot the Kingdom. Among the numerouTl
bills of which notice was given, worthy of note
was one by the lion. Mr. Malo. to forbid the sell
ing or mortgaging of lands by natives to foreign
ers. Hon. Mr. Kamauoba wants to amend tbe
stallion law. Hon. Mr. Mahoe presented a peti
tion from Hilo, prayiDg that one Akiona, a China
man, be allowed to practice medicine.
The other proceedings of Wednesday were of espe
cial interest, and it was, in parliamentary parlance, a
" field day." The special order of the day was the
report of the Committee on Finance, and as it rec
ommended the gravest censure " of the Ministry,
the motion for its adoption by Hon. Nawahi brought
the Ministry to their feet.
Minister Kapena reviewed the Report of the Com
mittee, and urged upon the attention of the native
members the inadequacy of the charges as affecting
the advisers of His Majesty.
Minister Smith, dwelt in detail upon the points in
the Report of the Commission of Experts. He con
sidered that they had assumed judicial functions,
and had exceeded their authority, which confined
them to the investigation of books, whereas, they
had sworn in clerks, and taken testimony as before
a court. He reviewed the testimony of Jones and
Weynton in the Interior Department, and considered
that the discrepancies brought forward by the Com
mission of Experts might be as much owing to the
shortness of the memory or negligence of Weynton
as of Jones. However he did not after all think tbe
discrepancies big enough to engage so much of the
attention of this Assembly, as had been the case ;
and he moved the indefinite postponement of fur
ther consideration of the Report of the Committee
non. Mr. Gibson, Chairman of the Committee on
Finance, said he did not want to occupy the atten
tion of tha Assembly more than a minute, as he felt
satisfied that the minds of the members were al
ready made np in regard to the disposition of the
Report of the Committee on Finance. He merely
wished to notice one remark of the Hon. Minister,
vuujiiu; uiai me uiscrepuncies or aenciencies in
ditioii of the country, which would not permit
liim to adopt the Report.
Hon. Noble Castle took some pain3 to explain
that certain expenditures in the Interior Depart
ment for toothpicks, fancy soap, and other articles
of personal use. were probably incurred at a time
when clerks were overworked, and had need of
some addition of personal comfort, ne con
sidered that the Attorney General did right in re
turning a certain hundred dollars, after finding
out he was wrong in first taking it. He saw many
good points in the Report as well na objectionable
ones, but he could not vote for its adoption.
Hon. Mr. Xawahi said that the Report revealed a
state of things in Government affairs which fully
condemned the Ministry. Besides what wa3 re
vealed, every one felt that there was a great deal
more behind. The strongest suspicions were
aroused. The Report' would bring about impor
tant reforms, and he trusted that it would be
adopted by the Assembly, and thereby con

President Rhodes, on tbe floor, said he won
dered at the denunciation of the animus of the
Report. He tbought it had dealt out praise as j
well as blame, with an impartial hand. But he
could not agree with the Report in saying that
the Ministry deserved the "gravest censure."
He thought that the chief point in the Report
had not been dwelt upon by speakers, and that
was the withdrawal from tbe Treasury of unex
pended balances of appropriations. He consid
ered this as illecal and uniu9tifiable. and no
would consequently support the adoption of the

Interior if Tables A. B. and C in th Ttpnnrt

lie made many amusing comments upon gold
pons, toothpicks, and fancy soap : and notinc
the item of blacking brushes, thought the Minis
ter more in need of a whitewash brush. His re
marks were received with laughter.
Attorney General Hartwell complimented Presi
dent Rhodes upon the manly tone of his discus
sion ; agreed with him, that the chief point to be
considered in connection with the Report was
the withdrawal by him of unexpended balances ;
defended his action in this matter, as having the
'sanction of usage." Deprecated further discus
sion on the Report ; was sick of the subject, and
wanted to come to a vote. Trusted the House
would be content with the acceptance of the
Report, and not its adoption. Said he had pre
pared a long speech in which he had contro
verted every point, but did not think it worth
while to deliver it. Cries of " no, no ! sitdswn."
Hon. Mr Mahoe said be wanted independent mem
bers, and those who regarded the welfare of
their country to stand by tbe Report. He ob
served that one member he was looking for was
now in his seat, and he felt that the house was
.ready for a vote, and to adopt the Report.
The yeas and nays were called for. The vote
on tbe indefinite postponement of any further
consideration of the Report stood, 24 nays to 16
yeas. I he vote on the adoption was 24 yeas to
The result was announced amid great applause
among members and the audience. Hon. Mr.
Nawahi made a motion to reconsider, which brought
the report again before the House, and on motion of
Hon. Mr. Pilipo it was again adopted.
Un Ihursday. among matters of less importance,
the resolution was adopted placing the sum of $3,000
at the disposal of the Minister of the Interior for the
purpose of refitting the Stormbird, immigrant
schooner; and most of the session yesterday was de

The sports of the day were over by half-past 4,
and the crowd of spectators was on the road back

races and with the excursion to the country
Nothing occurred to mar the enjoyment of the day,
beyond an occasional harmless 44 scrimmage" be
tween small gamblers on the result of a race always
to be expected on such occasions. A good deal of
money doubtless changed hands in the way of
betting, but always in small sums or for such matters
as cigars or a pair of gloves. We doubt if there
was much demoralization from this source. But
little drunkenness was seen on the grounds, and
this is unquestionably attributable to the situation
of the race-course, so far away from the city,
and to the fact that nothing in tbe shape of intox
icants is allowed for sale on the Park grounds. So
far as the public safety and the public morals is
concerned, we think it will be admitted that it is
better for the masses to spend a public holiday at
Kapiolani Park rather than in the city.

nobody was hurt. On the return to town of the Rob

from the Park, in attempting to make a short cut

ladies and children a scare and a ducking in salt
water. However, all's well that ends well, and the
Robbie is a tight little craft and a great public con

From an early Lour in the morning of Tuesday
the 11th, tbe populace of Honolulu began to
pour out of the city on to the load leading to Kapio
lani Park, to witness the races. In vehicles of
all sorts and ehapes, on horses, mules or donkeys
no matter, so long as they had four legs and on
foot, men, women and children were off to have
a good time at the races. The express-wagons,"
of which theia are so many in Honolulu of late
years, drove a brisk business during the day in
conveying passengers to the race-ground at two
dollars a head some of them realized as high as
fifty dollars for the day's work. Until the pro
posed road to the Park is laid out and opened
which we hope to see before another year comes
round the last half mile is through the loose sand
of the beach, and is very heavy going. Most of
the passengers were consequently obliged to walk
this portion of the way, which doubtless quite
forcibly brought to their attention the necessity
for the new road. This, it will be remembered,
is to be an extension of King street, and will enter
the Park grounds on the upper corner. It is to be
hoped that the Legislature will appropriate a round
sum for the construction of this road, so much
needed for the proper development of the Park.
By the published programme, the races were
to commence at 10 o'clock sharp, but a delay oc
curred on account cf the non-appearance of the QATITPnAV CUCMT. Innn

disturbance will be averted.
The great disproportion of the two races in
New Zealand, and the very rapid increase of the
foreign, indicates with the utmost certainty that
the aboriginal or Maori race will be entirely
absorbed or "assimilated" with the white. Should
marked wrong or injustice attend the process, the
world will be neither blind nor eilent.
Some points in connection with thia interview
(or rather scries of interviews, for the conference
lasted from Tuesday, May 7, to Saturday, May
11) as given by the correspondent who accom
panied Sir George Grey's party, are full of inter
est. He says the difference between the Kingites
and the Maories that Europeans are accustomed
to sec, is well marked. The men and women are
healthy-looking, while the number of children
playing about, and of fine 6 tout infants to be
seen in the arms of their mothers, is remarkable.
It is sad to think that those natives who have
least to do with Europeans are in every respect
the best of their race, but so it is. It is sad for
them, because the separation that at present
ble members, devoted to the welfare of the country
will sustain the Rsport of the Committee whose in
vestigations must lead to important administrative

writer also preferred the trip on the tight little

cluding those in a boat towed astern, there were
over fifty passengers on this trip, and the Robbie
made a number during the day, always with a
good fare. We not only escaped the dust and
jolting of the journey by land, but got a good
sniff of wholesome sea air and enjoyed a fine view
of Nuuanu, Manoa and Talolo valleys. There is
a break in the reef at about the middle of the Park

The grounds presented a lively appearance, with
flags flying over the King's, the judges' and the
grand stands, and the crowd of several thousands
of all classes, moving among the various booths
and tents, or standing at or sitting cn the fences
that enclosed the race course, or scattered in
groups over the plain. The commodious stands
were well-built and roofed over and provided with
seats, where numerous ladies and children were
accommodated. On the King's stand we noticed
His Majesty and II. R. II. the Heiress Apparent,'
several Foreign Representatives, and the ladies
of the Court. Still Canother stand was occupied by
members of the Legislative Assembly and their
wives. In the rear of the stands were the refresh

Keport had a bearing upon the welfare and inde
