Corbection. It will not do to accept all street
rumors affecting the private business affairs of peo
ple as true, and publish them, without proper in
quiry. A notable example of this vice, for such it
is, occurs in the " Notes of our cotemporary, this

no one else. Mr. James Campbell was not interested

Eautuqcake. The Oracle" learrs that a slight
shock of earthquake was felt at liana, Maui, on
Thursday night of last week. It lasted about
three minutes, but no damage was done. It (the
Oracle) says these growlings " may be the pre
cusorsof a more serious disturbance that may be in
store for us some of these One nights, but there is
no use of being alarmed about it." There! we
can sleep easy now !
The London Standard announces that " the
acquisition of a harbor and coaling station in the
Sandwich Islands having greatly increased the in
fluence of the United States in the PaciCo it has
been considered advisable that a British man-of-war
Bhall always be stationed to represent the
British flag near these islands." This to us at the
Islands ia an amusing illustration of how little is
known to us out here in the mid-Pacific. We have
no objection however to a British man-of-war being
always stationed at Honolulu, and would rather
like it, from past experience.

Loxa Lived Hawaiiajk. The eld time native
Hawaiians were long-lived. Unfortunately there
are no means of telling exactly how old they are
when they die. Last Friday an old man died at
Kamoiiiiii, mauka of Waikiki, whoso age ie fairly
estimated at cne hundred and three years. His
hair was sucw white, with no sign cf baldness ;
and his pearly white teeth were perfect. He pro
fessed to remember all about the arrival of Capt.
Cook at these islands, and when the missionaries
came here in 1S21, he was a grown man and the
father of children. The present generation is not
likely to be bothered with old-time recollections !

Latek from the Arctic. By private letter re
ceived per Syren (which ship arrived at this port
on Monday last) we have dates from the Arctic to
July 22nd. At that time the Hainhow, Capt. Cogan,
had taken 1136 barrels of oil, 15,000 lbs. bone,
and 900 lbs. ivory, which she shipped on board
the Syren at St. Lawrence Bay, for this port and
home. After trans-shipping her oil and bone, the
Hainhow started, a clean ship, for Point Barrow,
and has a fine prospect, with Capt. Cogan's in
variably good success, cf making one of the best
season's work ever done in the Arctic. The Rain

Tub Yellow Fever. Accounts from the East
show a dreadful condition of things in the South
western States, from the prevalence of this fearful
epidemic. We epoke last week of an effort to do
something here, however little, for the relief of the
sufferers. Now, there appears tangible opportu
nity to carry out our charitable withes. The organ
ization known as the Knights of Pythias, proposes to
give a Charity Ball in aid of the fund for relief of
the yellow fever sufferers. It is proposed that the
ball will take place on Thursday evening next at
the hall cf Mr. C. E. Williams, on Fort St. Ticket
for the ball will be put at one dollar, admitting gen

Living in Glass Ilocsts. It is a well known
fact that the Chinese here, in preparing rice for
market, largely use broken or powdered glass.
This is during the process of cleaning of the husk
and polishing. Everybody admires onr pearly
Hawaiian rice, and many eat it with more or less
of patriotic sentiments, but in so doing they don't
realize that they are putting into their delicate
intestines ground glass. We have heard it hinted
that deaths have actually occurred in this city from
eating Hawaiian rice polished by broken glass.
The Chinese themselves don't eat that kind of rice,
but prefer the less good looking article.
Tue N. T. Tribune says the heavy tide of passen
ger travel from New York to Europe daring the past
four months has been unprecedented ; the total num
ber carried on seventy-five steamships, represented
by eleven different lines, between April 4 and Aug.
1, being 20,833, against 18.033 in 1872 and 18,583
in 1873, the two heaviest seasons heretofore. The
experience of the present year has shown that the
existing steamship lines are able, with the use cf re
serve boats, to transport double the number of pas
sengers now carried, the facilities for travel being
claimed as always in excess of the demand. The
eleven companies engaged in the trade employed
during the season seventy-five steamers, which made
one hundred and sixty-eight trips.

The Queen's Hospital.
Honolulu, Sept. 17tb, 1878.
Rev. S. C. Damon, Dear Sir: As the Purveyor
of tbe Queen's Hospital has informed the Executive
Committee that two foreigners, suffering from con
sumption, have been left at the Hospital to-day for
treatment as in-door patients, by yourself. I am
instructed to say that the Committee looks to you
or to such charitable socif ties as you represent for
defraying the expenses for treatment of the above
named persons named B. Hughes and Jas. Wells.
I remain, Dear Sir, yours very respectfully,
V. A. SCHAEFER, Secretary.
To the Editor of Pacific Commercial Advertiser :
You will favor me by publishing the accompany
ing letter of the Secretary of the Queen's Hospital.
I am a Trustee of that Institution, but ia a minority
upon a measure most intimately connected with cne
class of patients, which I honestly believe shoull.e
admitted to the privileges of tbe Hospital. I know)
- - i
very well that tbe Hospital was originally designed
for the benefit of the native population, but a great!
change has taken place during the past twenty years,
while the native population has been diminishing the
foreign element bas been upon the increase, and es
pecially during the last few years. Now it appears
to me that tbe constitution of the Hospital demands
I Among the reasons for this change I would men
tion this in particular that according to tbe exist-'
V ing laws of this Kingdom every passenger from a
foreign country, landing on these islands, is required
to pay two dollart for the support of tbe Queen's
Hospital, yet the Constitution of the Hospital allows
no special privileges to a foreigner in indigent cir
cumstances, unless he has taken the oath of alle
giance, and even then only upon certain conditions.
If, when sick, be goes to the Hospital, either himself
or some benevolent Association must pay tbe Hos- I
pital fees. This may be right, in case the patient
has means, but if not, then I honestly think the doors
of the Hospital should be opened free, (or at a re
duced price,) for his entrance. I am not alone in
this opinion. Intelligent visitors not unfrequcntly
express themselves very freely upon the subject, and
among them such men as Judge Caton, of Illinois,
It should be borne in mind that this tax upon for
eigners forms no small part of the annual income for
the support of the Hospital. Last year it amounted
to nearly $1,000, and only the last quarter the
Treasurer of the Hospital reported that be had re
ceived 1,700 from this cne source. For these an 1
other reasons, I am inclined to think the Trustees of
the Hospital should alter the Constitution. I am not
ignorant cf the specious objections which are made
to any change, and when the subject shall be fairly
considered, I would allow them all the weight which
Ia conclusion, Mr. Editor, allow me to offer a few
words upon the general subject of ailing the indigent
in sickness and want. I rejoice that I live in a
part cf the world where the practical benevolence
of the community is so commandable, Let those
called to carry the principles of benevolence and
charity into practice, do not always find their path
way strewn with Cowers. Applications are not on
frequently made to the British Benevolent Soci
ety," the "American Relief Fund," the Ladies'
Strangers' Friend Society," and the reply is, " the
case cannot be admitted, because contrary to our
rules," I pray tbee have we excused."
I am aware that with the increase cf foreigners the
number requiring aid is also increased, hence our
citizens must look upon the subject candidly and
fairly. They should bear this ia mind that hitherto
the Hawaiian Government has not imposed a " pau
per tax" upon those residing on tbe Islands. I
hear from some the remark, " let the Stranger's
Friend Society look after all such cases it has a
fund." The ladies best know bow to manage their
own society, but let me odd that the fund of 2,000
was contributed twenty-five years sgo, under very
peculiar circumstances, and some of the ladies feel,
in regard to expending any more than the income
from it, much as the Trustees of Oahu College
or Queen's Hospital would, about expending vetted
funds, and argue with no little force, that should
the fund be expended the society would disband and
its usefulness cease altogether. Asking your pardon
for so long a communication, I remain, yours,

To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Aivertiter:
Sir : The recent appropriation by the Legisla
ture for the extcntion of King Street towards
Kapiolani Park, recalls to mind the freely Circulated
Subsription list throughout the city several months
since for this same object. Quite a sum of money
was collected, but so far as I can learn, nobody
seems to know what has become of it. If you can

New York, Aug. 17. Tbe Tribunt't Berlin spe
cial says of the execution of Hoedel t He received
the announcement at first stolidly, but afterward
betrayed great agitation. Home difficulty bad
been expeiiettced in obtaining an executioner. It
I reported that the man wbo at last accepted the
tank is a respectable butcher of Berlin. When
conducted to the place of execution Hoedel trem
bled, and his countenance waa ashy. The busi
ness wus quietly done. Ha was made to kneel
down. The executioner raised au Immense doubt
handed sword and the bead It'll upon the scaffold.
The reported executioner refused any award.
Hoedel, when Informed that bis execution was
Gxd upon, became deathly pale. He wished to
plead lor pardon, but recovered composure when
told this was useless. He then asked lor wine
for supper, and drank to lb commune and leader
of the social democracy. When tho sentence waa
read ou tbe scaffold be spat disdainfully and cried
Bravo!' He refused tho ministrations of tbe
chaplain, declaring them useless, aa It would take
years to convert him. 1'litv persons, Including
offlcluls, judges, polic, and twelve citizens, at
tended tbe execution which is generally approved.
Official notice of the execution bad been posted
throughout the city as a warning. It required but
a single stroke cf tba ax to decapitate Hoedel.
The remains wera Immediately burled. .

Tbe Italian government. Ia respor.se to over

The Vatican has sent to Mgr. Wasella, papal
nuncio, proposals to be submitted to Prince Bis
marck regarding the return of expelled ' - ,
their dioceses. The Vatican would accept the
Htmple promise of non-lnterlerence, and thinks the
German government might regard this as a much
less diClcult concession tban a formal sanction.

tions between tbe Vatican and England.

Tli attempted assassination of the Russian
t hief ol police is tbe subject of comment. The
theory advanced is, that it was the work of secret
societies arid was in retaliation for the execution
of Hoedel at Berlin on tbe morning of the ICtb.
A bond or sympathy is said to exist between
secret societi.-s in Russia, Germany and France
and Hi'! fact that Hoedel's sentence was to be
canied out was known in St. Petersburg the same
morning. It is said both Hoedel and Nobellng,
who i soon to meet Hoedel's fate, are believed to
have been in association with Russian aotletlea.
