SATURDAY, JULY 13.
The subject of our treaty relations with Great
Ilritain, (which was discussed in a speech by
the Hon. Mr. Rhodes in the Assembly and
printed in full elsewhere in these columns) has
been referred to a 6elect committee for considera
tion and report, which report will probably be
made during the coming week. Judging from
the jursonnd of the committee, it is to be ex
pected that the Assembly will be enabled to
adopt a short and satisfactory solution of all the
real or apparent difficulties arising from treaty
The OniM 1ill, which on Thursday passed a
second reading in the Assembly by a vote of 23
to 10, and was ordered for a final reading to-day,
authorizes the sale by auction of two yearly li
censes for Honolulu only, at an upset price of
$20,000 for each license. Eonda are also to
be exacted of the licensee to the amount of
$20,000, not to give, sell or furnish any opium
or preparation of opium to any person other than
Chineee, excepting when given as medicine by a
physician. The penalty for selling opium with
out license is fixed at $100 and imprisonment at
hard labor not less than ten months.
from 100 to 1874, there were two licenses
allowed for the sale of opium in Honolulu, at an
upset price of $2,000 each per annum. For these
there was considerable competition among Chi
nese merchants, and one year the two licenses
brought $20,000. Since 1874, when the law was
amended, opium could only be imported by the
Hoard of Health, and a heavy penalty was im
posed on any one having it illegally in possession.
There exists a considerable difference of opinion
in the community as to which is the wisest
policy to pursue in regard to this opium business.
By the advocates of the license system it is held
that it is impossible to prevent the use of the drug
among the Chinese by prohibitory laws, for the re
sult of such laws has invariably been to incite
great activity in smuggling ; that where one case
of smuggling is detected the probability is that
hundreds escape ; that admitting the use of opium
t be an evil, it is one that is inseparable from
the presence of a large Chinese element in oiir
population, and cannot be eradicated eo'ong as
Chinese come here ; and that it is better for all
concerned that an evil whicji ye cannot remove
should be regulated bjfi1aw strictly enforced.
On the other liarid, a committee of the Assem
bly, consisting of the lion. Messrs. Vr. O. Smith,
C. II. liishop and others, have unanimously re-
;, commended that no change be made in the exist
ing law, which forbids the sale of opium. They
state in their report:
" That although Chinamen still use opium a!l over
the Kingdom, and notwithstanding the efforts of
the Custom House and Police officers it is brought
into the country from foreign porU ; still, its use
among Hawaiian has very much diminished under
the present law. And this fact is, in the opinion
of the Committee, the most weighty argument
against granting a license. Its use
has not only diminished among native Hawaiians,
but the evidence of the great majority of those
whose opinions were sought was that it is not so
largely used by Chinamen themselves as when the
licenses were in operation."
Intelligent Chinese merchants of this city arc
decidedly opposed to the reopening of the license
system. They say that under the existing law
the consumption of opium has decreased, so that
at present it is merely nominal ; that to again
legalize the traffic (aside from the increase of
crime, poverty and sickness that will ensue amoDg
the lower class of Chinese), will rceult in no in
considerable damage to the agriculture of the
country, through the loss of labor of opium con
sumers. We hear that the leading Chinese of
Honolulu propose to memorialize His Majesty
against giving the Royal sanction to the bill.
APPROPRIATION FOR LEPERS.
The popular sentiment among Hawaiians has
been somewhat adverse to the segregation of their
afllieted fellow countrymen at Kalawao, Molokai.
At the commencement of the present session of
the Legifclature it was feared by many in the
foreign community that a majority of the native
members would vote against any supplies for the
support of the leper settlement ; but we are gra
tified to record that the former liberal appropria
tion has been exceeded by an addition of ten
thousand dollars, and moreover, native members
readily voted another ten thoueand dollars in
order to Eecure the services of a first-class super
intendent for the settlement, who should be a
physician of repute, during the next biennial
period. The chief opposition to this especial ap
propriation came from a foreigner. After such
evidence of liberal provision for the eick of Ha
waii, in accordance with the mo6t enlightened
treatment and management, we trust that the
voices of the sneerers at Hawaiians, who say
that they are without thought or reason in the
consideration of a great evil, and would be will
ing to ruin or injure the nation by a return of
the lepers to their homes, will now be silenced.
As remarked by the Hon. Mr. Gibson, this
liberal provision of the Legislature, so largely
composed of native Hawaiians, redounds to the
honor of this country. And as we believe in
giving honor to whom it is rightly due, we have
no hesitation in saying what we know to be a
fact, that it is largely due to the influence exer
cised upon native members by Mr. Gibson that
this liberal appropriation was carried. The fol
lowing is an abstract of the remarks of that
gentleman in proposing an increased appropria
tion for the leper settlement :
Mr. President, The provision made by the Assem
bly cf 187C for our unfortunate lepers was large,
and redounds to the honor of this country, consider
ing the smallness of cur population and our re
sources. But I propose that we should do still more.
Enough is provided for food, clothing and lodging,
if properly administered ; but there are certain
things, essential to the comfort of the sick, for which
some additional means should be voted. The leper
baa no light in his hut, uole99 he is pnbl''
' buy, and must pass weary hours io darkness. It
would be a heavy item of expense to supply every
one of ft community of 700 with a ration of oil 6sy
I one nuart ner wppk ; hut if this nuantitv be supplied
x i j 1 -
to a group of seven, or say to each house or but per
week, we need not add more than ?1,200 to the ap
propriation for this item. Next comes soap, which
would te a very heavy item if fully supplied ; but
we ought to provide for at least one bar of soap per
month for each leper, which will be but a scant sup
ply for cleanliness, and this addition will require
2,000 more. The beef ration cf C lbs. per week is
considered too small, but I think that if the poor
leper gets hi3 full ration of 21 lb9. of taro he will not
suffer with C lbs. of beef. However, we might add
one pound of beef, which at 4c. per pound, the
lowest estimate, would require us to vote $3,000
more. Now, if we provide for salt, some utensils,
and an increased supply of medicines, lint and disin
fectants, we may properly add enough to require a
full ten thousand dollars more to be added to the ap
propriation as called tor in the bill. We must vote
for this, if we have to let other things stand still.
How can we vote for any measure for public improve
ments and neglect our unhappy lepers? Their last
cry to me and to the members of the Special Com
mittee as we passed from them at Kalaupapa was,
Lo not forget us ! And we will not and cannot for
The proposed increase, making the amount
$65,000, was promptly voted by the Assembly.
The hon. member then proposed an additional
item of ten thousand dollars to provide for the
pay of a superintendent at Kalawao. He said:
He wanted to provide for the services of a man very
difficult perhaps to find. The man needed now at
Kalawao should have first-rate executive ability and
be a physician of repute. He should moreover be a
man of great heart, an enthusiast in the cause of
humanity, and one anxious to win a noble name as
a benefactor of suffering humanity. Many say it is
hopeless to expect to find such a man ; but let us
provide liberally, let us put the means into the
hands of the Government. Let us acquit our hearts
in this matter, and it may be that a brave, generous
and enlightened soul shall come forward from among
the many self-sacrificing worthies that this world
produces from time to time, and we shall find the
man that our great calamity calls for. He should be
the chief of a medical staff that had full charge of
the lepers cf the Kingdom. Such a man is the cry
ing need of the leper settlement at Kalawao. The
lepers all said, Send us a physician ; we live now
without hope ; a physician would give us some hope.
And even if we believed all their cases incurable,
shall we deny them the consolation which we all
crave, when suffering, to listen to words from skilled
lips that revive our hopes of life ?
After slight opposition this item was voted by
a large majority.
Saturday, July 6. Petitions were received from
the native associations of Honolulu known as the
'Poola," and "Ahahui Opiopio," asking that a
subsidy be granted the PaciCc Mail Co. Hon. Mr.
Kaiaikawaha read lit s t time a bill to specially tax
Chinese laborers who come here without their
wives. The Railroad Bill, on its second reading,
wa3 referred to a select committee, consisting of

For the Leper Asylum, on motion of Hon. Mr. Gib
son, the sum was fixed at $65,000 for the two
years, and $10,000 appropriated in addition for a
physician and superintendent.
Tuesday, July 9. The reports of the majority
and minority of the Committee on Foreign Affairs,

Mr. Rhodes offered a resolution to the effect that
the Assembly accepts the report of the majority,
and that the Minister of Finance is instructed to
pay all claims of British subjects for dutie, paid
and report the same to the Assembly in order that
the amount may be inserted in the appropriation
bill. After a lengthy discussion, on motion of the
Hon. Mr. Gibson, a committee ot five was ap

potts of the committee on Foreign Affairs and the
report of the Hon. Mr. Carter, late Envoy to
Europe, and to report a resolution thereon to the

Friday, July 12. The House was occupied
with consideration of the Appropriation Bill.
Narrow Escape. Last Tuesday four men
one a foreigner named Daly set out in a whale
boat from beyond Diamond Head to come to Ho
nolulu. When off the Park the boat was capsized
in a squall, and the men got on her bottom.
This was about eleven o'clock in the forenoon,
and the steamer Zealandia, outward bound,
passed the boat evidently without seeing her.
With the strong trade wind blowing the party
was rapidly drifting out to sea. whn sometime
after noon, two ol the men, Divid Adams and
Uma, struck out to swim for the shore, a distance
of about four miles, which- they accomplished
safely, reaching the reef about half-past 3. Mak
ing all haste into town, they spread the news of
the accident, when a pilot boat in command of
Capt. Babcock and the tug Hobble, Capt. Black,
were immediately dispatched to search for the
boat. The schooner Annie however, which left
port that afternoon for Kauai, fell in with the
boat and rescued the two men, Daly and a na
tive, and kept on ber course for the leeward
The Sarah Nicholson, which arrived at Hong
kong on the 14th of April, reports that on the 22d
of March, in lat. 4 deg. south, long. 1C4 deg. east,
oho passed through at least sixty miles of pumice
stone floating upon the water. In many places it
was so thick that the water could not be seen at
all for some; distance. Those on board picked up
William Cullen Bryant.
The deuth of this illustrious poet and jotirnal
j ist calls for more than a passing notice, and we
keenly realize and acknowledge that it creates
a void in the literary circles of the age that ean
not be easily or readily filled. The influence
of bis writings upon modern literature, has been
very marked and decided. Many of his poetical
works have been translated into foreign lan
guazes, and, although translations generally
fail to give the spirit of the original, they have
always been much admired.
The illness which ended Mr. Bryant's life
commenced on the 20th of May, the result of an
accident while he was returning home from Cen
tral Park, in New York City, where he had given
an address upon the occasion of unveiling the
bust of Mazzinl. For several days he seemed to
be getting better, but a change for the worse
was soon observed, aad on Wednesday morning,
June 12. he gently breathed his last, aged eighty
three years and seven months.
Mr. Bryant was born in the village of Cum
mington, Mass., on the 3d ot November, 1794.
He published his first book in 1S0S, when he was
thirteen years old. It wa entitled the Em
bargo," a satire upon the political situation as
it was when he wrote. It was a very superior
performance for one so yountf, although possess
ing no special merit. In the year 181G, " Thana
topsis.'? which had been composed four years
before, was published in the J'or(h American lie
view. This poem was the corner-stone of his fame ;
it was the key-note to his whole nature, and it
may be said that in all his after career he never
wrote anything that surpassed it in style,
thought, or imagery.
In 1821, he married Miss Fairchild. of Great
Earringtou, Mass., at which place he was practis
ing his profession of the law. In 1825, he re
moved to New York, and soon after commenced
his literary career in earnest. In 1827, he be
came editor of the Evening Pat, which position
he filled faithfully for thirty-five years, and he
retained an interest in the journal up to the
time of his death.
He took a conspicuous part in all the promi
nent events of the day, and was a distinguished
feature in metropolitan circles, being in constant
demand as a central figure on interesting public
occasions. He was naturally reserved and gentle,
careful in his habits, and thoughtful in his man
ner, and always charitable, and ready to help bis
fellow men. He leaves a fortune estimated at
one million of dollars.
"The guy will laugh
When thou art gone, the solemn brood of care
Plod on, and each one, as before, will chase
His favorite phantom ; yet all these shall leave
Their mirth and their employment, and shall come
And make their bed with thee."
The concluding lines of Thanatopsis'' may be
aptly quoted to close this brief notice ot Mr.
' Sustained and toothed
By an unfaltering truxt, approach thy grave
Like one who wraps the drapery of bis couch
About him, and lie down to pleasant dream."
Wailuku, Maci, July 5, 1878.
To the Editor of Pacific Commercial Advertiser :
Dear Sir : The following is a programme and
summary of the races held at this place yesterday,
July 4 :
1. Running race Purse, $100 ; two entries. Won by Katie
Lee ; time not taken.
2. Trotting race, mile heats I'urse, $G0 ; two entries. Won
by Ashby ; time, 3.20, 3.27.
3. Running race, three-quarter mile dash Purse, $30 ;
three entries. Won by Ten Broeck ; time, 1.27.
4. Pacing race, to saddle Purse, $20 ; three entries. Won

5. Mile race Purse, $15 5 three entries. W'n by My Mary
Ann ; time, 1.12.
6. Running race, lialf-milc Uiish Purse, $20 ; two entrie.
Won by Pet ; 64 sec.
Owing to Wagner's horse. Hanger bolting and
throwing his rider in the first race, a match race
was male for one mile, which race was run imme
lluleiy after the programme (or the day was over,
with the following result : Two entries, viz., Katie
Lee and Ranger. Won by Katie Lee ; time, 2.05.
This race was won by the superior manner in
which the mare was handled.
The races were attended by an immense con
course of people, and everything passed off in the
most pleasant manner ; not a solitary fight or
drunk occurred to mar the pleasure of the spec
tators. The only drawback was the high wind and
dust, which materially interfered with making fast
time, and in one or two instances with the view of
the spectators. C. N. Arnold, Secretary.
