ly ?ery delicious, and is made from pare chocolate.
Ock thanks are due to the purser of the Cily

Meesrs. Whitney & Robertson for late copies of the
Alta received per E. C. Beal.
f PnvTiTinv Su.e It ia rumored that the Plan
tation of Mr. E. Delemar, at Malcawao, has beea
sold, on account of tbe illness of the owner. The
figure is said to have been $50,000.
IIoopixq Cough is prevalent in town among chil
dren to a considerable extent. The disease is not
however by any means so severe in this climate as
in the United States, and is readily ameliorated by
Moee TJxroRTVXATzs. The steamer Liktlike on
Saturday last landed at the settlement on Molokai,
just one hundrtd lepers, gathered from different
parts of Hawaii and Maui. The Minister of the
Interior and Dr. McKibbin made the circuit in the
steamer, and personally superintended the segrega
tion of tbe sick people.
i Mcles vs. Bcllocks. We long since pointed out
that mules mnst eventually supersede bullocks as
-draught animals on plantations for about every kind
of work, not even excepting plowing. There is to
day a great demand for mules on nearly all the
plantations. Would it not piy .to ship them here
from Mexico or Lower California, where they could
I be got in large numbers at a moderate figure ?

Thk Waimaxalo Chinamen. We learn from Mr.
f J. Cummina that the trouble at Waimanalo, to which
allusion vas made last week, arose from a demand
by the Chinese for lard to eat with their rice, not
obtaining which they stopped work. They were taken
before the district justice who administered a fine
together with a warning, and the men went to work
again. It is to be presnmed, however, that they got
Repairs Needed. The government wharf near
the fish market is very much in need of repairs.
The planking is worn very thin, from years of nse,
and there are several holes that are dangerous to the
legs of horses and to the lives of men, on a dark
night. We presume it is only necessary to call the
attention of the Minister of the Interior to the un
safe condition of this wharf, to ensure its being
speedily put in order.
(vFousd Dead. Two weeks ago last Sunday, at
Keaiwa, in the district of Kau, Hawaii, there was an
' okolehao spree " somewhere up on the mountain.
One of Capt. Wlllfong's native lunas in returning
home on horseback, drunk, tumbled into a rocky
gulch, where he was found two days afterwards,
having been evidently killed instantly by the fall.
I The horse was uninjured. ; We are informed that all
tnrougu ivarr ami-nona, arunsenness prevails to a
fearful extent, the natives manufacturing large
quantities of okolehao a crude spirit besides
drinks from fermented prickly pear and sweet pota
toes. Suddex Death of a Plantation Manager.
Under date of Sept. SOth, Mr. Charles Koelling, at
Ilanalei, Eauai, writes us as follows : " Mr. A.
Conradt, Manager of the Prioceulle Plantation, was
attacked by a serious fit of illness last night, with a
fatal result. He had been couplaining now and
then for some time of having crrmps that took away
his breath, but nobody thought that he was seriously
ill. He died at half-past six o'clock p. m., after a
short struggle. His corpse will be conveyed to
Koloa to-day by twenty-four native Hawaiian?, who
willingly undertook to carry tie remains of their be
loved master over there. He was a native of Ger
many, born in 1842, and leav.'s a widow and four
children to mourn his loss."

I The Friend for October. The current number
of this sterling periodical contiins Xo. 21 of Mr. F.
W. Damon's " Rambles in the Old World," one of
the best of the series. The g-apbic description of
the Unter den kLinden, the miia street of Berlin,
is equal to any we have seen of that famous thor
Vnghfare Mr. Dumon concludes his letter at
Sassnitz, Island of Rugen, in the Baltic Sea. One
of his sentences, " How near the sea has made tbe
Islands' seem to me," will touch a responsive
chord in the heart of every ne who has ever lived
on these Islands, and is ntw residing in foreign
lands ! The smell of the salt sea-air, " sweeping
over the waves, the sands, and the sea-weed " draws
the wanderer's mind irresistibly back to his Island
home, and, perchance, brings a tear to his eye as he
thinks of and sighs for the dsjs that are past.
"For Sweet Charity's Saee." We unequiv
ocally assert, and can prove by facts, that for its
size, there is not a community to be found elsewhere
in Europe or America that gives so liberally for
charitable purposes as does the little community of
Honolulu, whether the object of the chanty be far
off or at our own doors. By the last mail for the
States the handsome sum of S 826,75 was sent for
ward as Honolulu's contribution for the sufferers
from the epidemic now raging in the Mississippi
Valley. This sum was made up of cash contribu
tions to the amount of 600, and the avails of a
charity ball given by the Knights of Pythias, amount
ing to S22G.75. Were every town and city through
out the north and west of the American Union to
Contribute in like proportion as Honolulu, what a
grand sum would be rolled up to meet the neces
sities of the case and to console the widow and
rntrECTioN." That is what Dillingham & Co.

The Law of Appeal ought surely to be amended
There are two cases on tbe docket for tbe October term
which are simply ridiculous. In one case, a China
man was convicted in tbe Police Court of stealing
two watermelons of the value of 25 cents each. He
appeals, and puts the country to tbe expense of a
foreign jury trial. Another case is that of a native.
convicted of stealing; two dried fish. He also
must have a jury trial.
There will be an Exposition at Melbourne next
year, and tbe Victorians are already making prepa
rations for it. But the great expectations in regard
to the affair refer to the belief almost certainty
that the Prince of Wales will be present and open the
Exposition in person. If be does, it is qnite within
the range of probabilities that the Heir to the British
Throne may pay Honolulu a visit, either going or
returning from Melbourne. ' '
Back Aciaij!. We arc pleased to note the arrival
in Saturday morning last, of tbe Hawaiian schooner
.Mana. Capt. nenry English, from Fanning's
frsland, after an unusually long absence from Hono
lulu no less than 82 days. The cause of the pro
tracted voyage was a long continuance of stormy
and unfavorable weather. We were also glad to
welcome by this arrival our old friend Mr. Wm.
Greig, so long a resident of Fanning's, and who
occasionally makes a visit to Honolulu.
Plaiu Talk. A valued correspondent on one of
the other Islands himself an educated man writes
to us as follows, at tbe conclusion of a business let
ter : " The Advertiser is the most popular paper
in these parts. In fact the Gazette is not much
more than a butt for ridicule. It astonishes me that
a man who has bad experience as an editor, as tbe
Gazelle man says he has, can get up so insipid a
paper, in vieakiy trying to piease everyoouy, ne
suits no one. I believe I never saw a writer who
could occupy more space in saying nothing than he
can. And have you noticed the way he slings In
A Good Example. An almost incredible story is
related of Marshal Canrobert, who was sent to Rome
to represent France at the funeral of Victor Em
manuel and the accession to tbe throne of Humbert,
For the expenses of himself and suite he was given
30,000 francs, of which he epent only 18.000. On
his return home he went to the Foreign Office and
handed to the Minister of that department the
balance, amounting to 17,000 francs. Tbe Minister
refused to take the money, saying that there was no
precedent for such a thing ; that the outlay was
made and accounted for, and that there was an end
to it. The Marshal answered that if it was absolute
ly necessary that somebody should steal this money
he would rather some one else would do it, and a&ked
for a receipt. Such is the story, and, as Canrobert
was born in 1809, before defrauding the publio was
considered no robbery, it is possible it may be true.
A Triumph for Edisox. A letter from Paris!
dated August Cth, Elates that in the French Expcsii
tion Mr. Edison has carried off the Government
prize for inventions, having eclipsed all other in
ventors of the world. The Grand Prize was awarded"
to him on account of the carbon telephone, tha
quadruplex telegraph instrument, the phonograph'
and the electric pen. The announcement wiU-fet
received with a feeling of pride all over tbe United
States. It is not only a deserved personal tribute 'o
Mr. Edison that be has been awarded the laurel in
this congress of tbe world, but also reflects credit
upon the youngest of tbe nations for taking the lead
in those inventions which tend to advance the Uees-
ngs of civilization and improve the condition of
humanity. It adds to the congratulation bis country
men will send him that Mr. Edison will wear his
honors gracefully and modestly.
Diixixgham Si Co's New Store. This fine new
brick structure, on Fort street near the corner
of Merchant, deserves more than a pa-sing notice.
n 06 days from tbe time when ground was first
broken the building was completed, occupied, and
the enterprising firm were selling hardware, etc.
This speaks well for the quick industry of the
builder, Mr. T. J. Baker, as well as the activity of the
firm, who had tc remove their immense stock of
goods from the oil stand on King street. The
building is of two istorys, and tbe front is hand
somely ornamented. Its dimensions are oO feet
front by 82 feet i i depth. The sales room cn the j
ground floor wnere about everything that can
possibly be need in the hardware, glassware and
paint line can Pe found is 50x00, with a ptckiaf
and receiving r m in the rear of about 30x50 feet
On the seconr -floor is a store room, G0x" feet,
from which goods are lowered to the ground floor
or sent up by a patent elevator, the first in the
country. By this contrivance three men can
easily raise three tons weight. Also oa the second
floor, fronting on the street, are three fine offices,
each 25 feet deep, all of which are leased as law
offices etc. In the rear cf the building there is a
spacious yard, affording ample room for tbe erection
of an additional storehouse when needed. The
office cf the proprietor and of tbe book-keeper has
its floor considerably elevated, and ia so situated as
to command, from the desk, a view of the entire
salesroom and of the packing room. The arrange
ment of the salesroom as to the disposition of the
goods, is a pattern of convenience and compact
ness. Altogether, the new store of Dillingham k.
Co., is in all respects one of the finest in tbe city,
and in all particulars, both exteriorly and in its inter
nal arrangements, its enterprising proprietors feel
justly proud of it.

favor of the plaintiff and against the dt-fendanta
who bad to pay exct tdve damages and Urge costs
as the final result, amounting to otn $l.6O0 in
all." Tbe jud;e baving directed the jury that tbe
defendants were prima Jac'u liable unlet the colli
f-ion actually took place when the blip was under
the charge ol tbe licenced pilot. Tbe actual dam
age was uot over $100.
Iu the pilot sysU-ut at Sjrduey. a deep m- pilot
boards vessels out.-iJe of the Head, and in this
instance the deep sea pilot Davigated the City of
yew Yk a far as Fort Denison. Here the mud
pilot, or a:sLtant harbor master came on board
The deep sea pilot slated in answer to a query put
by Captain Cobb, that It was tbe custom for the
mud pilot or assistant harbor matter to move vrs
fels, and then gave up the cbarge to him. The
Captain cf course supposing what tbe deep sea
pilot ftated was correct, felt that the command waa
still veKted in the pilot, or in other words that the
pilot in resigning bis cbarge to the harbor pilot
did it as a part of bis duty, and the control of the
vessel was still beyond bis reach. But according
to the verdict of the jury under tbe instructions of
tbe judge, strange to say, the responsibility wwa
held as being still on tbe shoulders of the Cuptain,
though bis tongue was tied and bit authority act
aside, he having, according to the laws of New
South Wales, a pilot in charge of the ship.
The precedent that is here laid down is not only
very dangerous indeed, but it is also a very bad
one. The owners of steamships and other vessels
are according to law compelled to take a pilot or
run tbe rink of losing their insurance, unless tbe
pilot law is complied with. Should any damage
occur to a vessel, or should a vessel do any damage
while without a pilot, and thus infringing on tbe
piiotage laws, the owners are held responsible.
Now in the case above cited, the verdict of the
jury as well as the instructions of tbe judge were
contrary to the generally underhtood iotentioni of
the law, and hence form a most dangerous pri ce
dent ; nay, it is positively bad, inasmuch as it puts
the owners of shipping interests entirely at the
mercy of the pilot, who has full control of their
ship, and who has or ought to have no authority to
re.tign or delegate his control to an irrtponMble
person. The pilot coinrninMonors are the parties
who in fact were or ought to have been held r
sponsible for the damage done to Hayes' wharf ;
because if a pilot delegates bis uuthority to another
party who might have a spite against a particular
Captain or owner of a vee 1, he could easily take
advantage of it by running the vessel into such a
position as would be the cause for a heavy action
for damages. Under the English statute owners
are not held responsible by the neglect or incom
petency of a pilot in cbarge, such being prima
facie attributable to him. Under th" late decuion
what is the use of u pilot or what the necessity of
engaging one if owners are Mill to be held respon
sible for the act, or neglect of outxide and irre
The Latin Monetary Union
As the Silver bill, which is now the law cf the
United States, provides for a Conference between that
country and the Latin Monetary Union on the sub
ject of metalt, everything rclatiog to that financial
compact is invested with considerable interest. The
Union has now only two years to run namely, until
1880. But if at that date it is not terminated, it is
to continue for fifteen years longer. Some disagree
ments, arising principally from the fact that out cf
the members cf the Union Italy ia using an in
convertible paper currency , have taken place, which,
if not arranged, are likely to bring it to an end at
the first-mentioned date. Tbe Paris correspondent
of tbe London Economist says that at present the
compact is working to the disadvantage of France.
Tbe silver coined by Italy finds its way to France,
and circulates there at 10 per cent, more than its
France, being a creditor country, draws all the
Italian silver, for the reason that the paper money
cf the latter would not bo accepted. This neutral
izes the effect of tbe restriction cn the coinage cf
silver, by which alone the circulation cf the two
metals haa so far been maintained. For tbe better
understanding of the matter it may be proper to
state that the Latin Union is composed cf France,
Belgium, Italy, Switzerland and Greece. By treaty
these countries are bound till 1&80 to receive each
ether's gold and silver coins at the ratio oflCl to 1.
By an agreement entered into in January, 1871, im
mediately after the demonetization cf silver by Ger
many, and which still continues, free coinage cf
silver was abandoned, anl a limit put cn the amount
to be issued by the Union. This was the only way
in which the effects cf German demonetization could
be warded off, but it relegated ell silver for tbe time
being to the condition cf token money. Tbe limit
for the Union for 1874 was fixed at 110,000,000
francs, for 1875 to 150,000,000 frsncs, and for 187C
to 108,000,000 francs.
But it was also stipulated that any cf the coun
tries might omit tbe quota assigned to it. In 1875
Switzerland did so, and in 1S7C the President cf
France suspended entirely, in accordance with an
act of the Assembly, tbe coinage of silver, except for
subsidiary purposes. In December cf tbe tame
year Belgium followed in the footsteps cf France. No
five-franc pieces were coined by either of these
countries in 1877. Bat the benefit of tbit restriction
is being destroyed by Italy, for being a paper
country, it cannot retain its coin. In the meantime
resumption took place in France on the let cf Janu
ary last. The event was nothing more than a for
mality. For this reason it baa for the most part
been passed without notice. We find the facts, bow
ever, substantially stated by a Paria correspondent
cf the Chicago Tribune. The following facta io rela
tion to the bullion in the country, tbe writer eaya,
were communicated to him ty M. Mignot, tha chief
cashier cf tbe Bank cf France :
On February 4th the value of the gold (coin and
bullion) in the Paris efficeof the Bank of France was
915.8-jS.074 franc, and cf tbe silver (coin and
bullion) 582,971,500 francs, a total cf 1 .408.830.474
francs. To this large sum mut be added the gold
and ellver lying in the coders of the various provin
cial branches, which on January Slat amounted
together to 475.200.000 francs, tbue divided : Gold
coin and bullion. 18,600,000 francs ; eilvercoin and
bullion, 266.000,000 francs ; a total of 475.200.000
francs. It will thus be seen that the total amount
of gold in the Bank cf France is approximately
1,104.458.974 francs, and of ailvr bG3,&71.&00
francs, and of both together 1,974,030,474 franca.
