Ladies Bexevolext Society. An entertainment
was given by this Society in the vestry rooms of the
Fort street Church on Thursday evening last, which
was well attended. Something over 550 were real
ized for the Society's fund. These funds are used
for benevolent objects in the community and were
realized from the sale of fancy articles and refresh

entertainments while serving a charitable purpose
are also instrumental in bringing into social inter
course all classes of society.
Ef We copy the following from a recent Boston
paper. Our older residents will recollect Mr. Avis
as connected with the firm of C. Brewer & Co., some
twenty-five or thirty years ago.
Mr. William Parsons Avis, who died in thia city on
Saturday, at an advanced age, was in early life en
gaged in busitct8 in this city, and subsequently in
New Orleans, Alton, III., Honolulu, Sandwich Is
lands, and in California, at which last-named place
he was financially unsuccessful. He then returned
to this city, where be remained until his death. He
was of that genial lovable temperament which en
deared bim to young and old, especially the former.
In business life he was a man of the strictest integri
ty, commanding the respect nnc esteem of all.
Died on tue Street. Early on Tuesday morning
last, a policeman found a man, a foreigner, lying on
the front veranda of the Pantheon saloon, apparently
in a dying condition. He was at once removed to the
Station House, where he almost immediately expired.
His name was William Arkins, a native of Ireland,
aged about 85 years, and had arrived from San
Francisco about three months ago. He was employ
ed as a 44 helper " in the blacksmith shop of Mr. G.
West, and bis employer gives bim the reputation of
being a sober and industrious man. He bad been
complaining latterly of internal pains, and it is sup
posed that he died of heart disease, or perhaps of the
liver. Coroners' inquests are not held here unless
there arc " suspicious circumstances " attending a
suduen death ; but in most countries a post mortem
examination would have been held in a case like this.
Not so. The GazetU of this week in speaking of
a deceased Chinaman says : He landed on these
ehores poor, and was sold, with others of bis country
men for his passage money, and was purchased by
the late Dr. Lathrop." This is utterly untrue, and
a libel on this country and people. There never
was a Chinaman or any other indentured servant
"sold" or ' purchased" in these Islands, and the
writer of the elaborate obituary of Akona, ignorant
as he evidently is in regard to everything pertain
ing to Hawaii nei, should, oat of common decency,
make inquiries in the proper quarter before he pats
such reckless and libellous statements into print.
The man in question was no more sold than are the
majority of laborers who came here under contracts
which are subsequently transferred with the labor
er's consent. Akona would have been amused or
more likely indignant at the idea that be had been
bought by Dr. Lathrop.
Tue New Siatiox House axd Police Court
Room. This building, erected on the site of the
old one. (which was built in 1855) is now com
pleted and in the occupancy of the Police. It is
of wood, two stories ia height, surmounted by the
belfry, from which is rung the nighty 'curfew"' at
half past nine and ten o'clock, and also the alarm
in case of a fire. The new building is 30 by 40
feet, some 12 feet longer in the front than the old
one. and the belfry is Oft. Gin. higher than formerly.
It U strongly constructed, with heavy timbers.
The lower portion of the building i3 devoted to
the office for registering arrests and for storeroom,
while the upstairs is the Folice Court room and
Deputy Marshal's office. The Court room is cap
able of seating from 150 to 200 spectators who
may be desirous of witnessing His Honor's mode
of "dispensing with" justice. Everything about
the new establishment seems to be well-ordered
and neat, and our old friend Bunsby (who has just
returned after a long absence in the States to go
into sugar planting) declares that the only thing
lacking to make McDufT happy, is to have the pri
vilege of locking him (Bunsby) up, through the
handsome vestibule of the new station house.
LlBKABT AXD READLYO ROOM ASSOCIATION'. An
adjourned business meeting was held on Saturday
evening last at which the organisation cf the Asso
ciation was completed by tho election of the fol.
lowing nine gentlemen as Directors, viz: Alfred S.
Hartwell, Alex. J. Cartwright, Alex. Yonng, Jas.
II. Black, Jas. Ashworth, L. May, Dr. C. T,
Rcdgers, P. Dalton and Andrew Hepburn. The
officers were instructed to inquire into tbe ex
pediency of having the association incorporated,
and report at the regular business meeting this
(Saturday) evening. The prospects of this organ-
1 izauon tor usefulness and permanence are all that
could be desired. Nearly three hundred members
nave already signed the roll and the best possible
spirit prevails throughout. The Board of Officers
and Directors held their first meeting on Wednes
day evening at tbe house of one of their own
number and transacted a large amount of impor
tant business. It has been decided that tbe read
ing room shall be kept open every day except
government holidays, from 10 a. J, to 10 p. x.
Since our last issue Mr. A. J. Cartwright has sent
in a handsome donation to the library, consisting
of fifty-four volumes. Mrs. Armstrong baa also tent
a large engraving cf Washington handsomely
framed, to ornament the walls of tbe rooms. W
take this occasion to once more urge upon those who
bave any books which they are willing to give.
that they should either send them to the rooms of
the association in V. i.. YV ilhams building, or notify
the officers when and where they may be called for.
Word may be left either at the reading room, with
Mr. T. G. 'Thrum, Fort Street, or with Mr. m.
Johnson, Kaahamanu Street. The members are
reminded that tbe regular business meeting cf tbe
association will be held this evening at half past
seven o'clock and that a large attendance is desired.
In our report last week of the publio opening
exercises, the name of Rev. Dr. Hyde was accident
ally omitted from the list of speakers. The Doctor
is a member of the association and one of its best
friends, and we regret exceedingly that thia over
eight should bave occured.
Imi-rovemexts ox tue EsrLAXADK. Since tue
great fire, now sixteen months ago, a number of val
uable improvements bave been made on the esplanade,
quite altering the appearance of that locality. Any
one who bad left town previous to tbe fire and should
now return, would hardly recognize the neighbor
hood. First comes the new Masonic nail on the
corner of Queen street (not yet completed) with the
adjoining store of A. W. Peirce & Co., both two-8tory
brick buildings and architecturally handsome. Then
we come to the extensive Brass Foundry, Barrel
Factory and Rice Mill, (all of brick) of Mr. J. A.
Hopper, of which we gave an extended notice some
time since. On the opposite side of tbe street is the
planing mill and carpenter shop of Mr. Geo. Lucas.
The building is one story, of brick, 82 by 40 feet,
and 14 feet in the clear. It ia to have iron doors
and shutters, has an iron roof, and thus will be fire
proof. Here is all the latest improved patent ma
chinery for planing, moulding, sawing and mortic
ing wood, and it is interesting and surprising to
note how human labor and time is saved by tbe ap
plication of machinery, and the work better executed
too than by band. Two men with these appliances
can do the work of twenty in tbe old style. Here a
board 12 by 14 inches wide, and CO feet in length
can be smoothly planed in a very few minutes. The
boiler house, of iron, in the rear of tbe main build
ing, is IS by 24 feet. The Engine which runs tbe
machinery is of 20 borae power, capable of being
worked up to 80, and has attached a Blake's patent
supply pump. Farther down on tho same side of the
street and opposite the Custom House, is Mr. J. T.
Chayter's new brick blacksmith shop and carriage
factory. The building, which forms the corner of
the new street running South from Fort street, is 67
by 27 feet, of two storeys, the lower being 12 feet and
the upper 10 feet in the clear. There are two neatly
built brick forges on the gronnd floor for doing light
and heavy iron work, and the upper story is to be
fitted for carriage and wagon work. This building
is also to be completed as a fireproof, and it is the in
tention of the proprietor to lead the water into the
upper story by a two-inch pipe, in order to be pro
vided in case of a fire. The desirability of the class
of buildings lately erected on the Esplanade is so ap
parent, that we anticipate but a few years will elapse
before the wooden buildings in that locality will dis
appear and their places be supplied by substantial
brick structures. As another improvement in this
neighborhood, we note that tbe government has re
cently laid out and commenced to fill in a continuation
of Alakea street to the steamer wharf at the end of the
Esplanade. It would be well if the old portion of
Alakea street could be widened some twenty feet.

Ma. Editor: The Hon. Mr. Rhodes, in bis letter
published in this week's Gazelle, criticises a remark
in the Hon. Mr. Castle's letter in yours of last
week, wherein that gentleman said that the " East
Indians will come here as British subjects, and we
shall find proctically that the behests of two govern
ments will bave to be observed." A very just re
mark, I think. But the Hon. Mr. Rhodes who is not
cool in his answer, says : " She (the British govern
ment) is a hideous spectre, certainly, but she did
once restore the independence of Hawaii, when it had
been wrongfully taken." He omits to tell us that it
was eo taken by a British officer in a British fri
Honolulu, April 4, 1879.
Ma. Editob, Sib : As an American, I am as
tonished and hurt that my bumble offer to suffering
humanity should have called forth the unchristian
like and captious criticism of the writer of the letter
in Wednesday's Gazelle, signed " Importer." Tbe
American Sewing Machine Co., whose represen
tative I am, are a great and powerful trading
body, and they have at all times been first in any
charitable project in any location where they bad
business. Acting in this spirit, I felt that I couli
be the instrument of directing or assisting the pri
vate benevolence of the happy and healthy to the
alleviation of tbe miseries of those fellow creatures
who are banished, outcast and hopeless sufferers, if
by any means occupying their time and making the
weary hours fly less slowly.
I did hope, if not for actual assistance, to bave
been epared pharasaical comments and hard-hearted
innuendoes. It is a noticable fact that in this mat
ter the voice of charity has been utterly silent
Scepticism and doubt alone have spoken.
Yours &c, A. M. Cameeon.
East Indian Immigration.
Pursuant to adjournment mi the 22d ult., a
number of planters and otliiw.-i interested in agri
culture, met at tbe room of tin? Chamber of Com
merce ou Wednesday last at 10 o'clock. Hon.
Godfrey Rhodes in the chair and II. L. Sheldon
acting as secretary.
The Chairman read a sei ie.s of questions which
had been propounded to Mr. Home, of Mauritius,
and that gentleman's answers thereto, as follows :
1. What is the population of Mauritius?
Answer The population of Mauritius is about 330,000 ; of
this over 200,000 are natives of India and their descendants.
Of the latter number about 60,000 are employed on sugar
estates plantations. Tbe others are employed as market gar
deners, cow keepers, carters, driters and owners of carriages,
carrioles ; a few shop-keepers, dock laborers, landowners,
policemen, domestic servants, washermen, dealers In firewood,
livery stables, road laborers, etc., etc.
2. How many of these are from British India!
Answer All tbe Indians in Mauritius are from British In
dia. A few of these come from Bombay Presidency ; many
from Madras, especially the small ship-keeping class, and the
majority from bengal. The latter Includes more from North
ern India such places as Umritsur, Lahore, Oude, etc. The
men (ram Madras rreaUlenry and froa nortriru rt of India
are considered tbe best. The laborer sua rvci oiled frusn the
country village. Those found in t Urge town are generally
unacceptable as Held laborers.
3. its Indiana good laborers f
Answer The Indian are excellent laborers as flcld knds,
cattle, horse or mule drivers, and domesUo servant. They
arc pectall7 useful alter they hav become acquainted with
their work and their employer, to whom they general! bave
4. Are they peaceable t
Answer They are quiet, peaceable and law-abiding, sod
amenable to the orders of their maa'.cr. whose word to law U
t. What Is the rate of wage at which they arc paiJ f
Answer The rate of wage which the Indian receive cn
the cane plantation In Mauritius does not exceed seven and
half dollar per month, which rat include food and medical
rare, etc. Laborer by tbe day for abort jub gvt from it& te
30 cents, and provide themselves with veryihlog. Rlc I
their staple article of food, and in Mauritius tin best quail lie
of ric coal from Si to 6 dollar per bag of 144 lbs. ia the tmp.
But I hare seen it as high aa seven dollar a bag during
periods of scarcity la sosn parts of India, and la ou or
drought la th localities where the best kind of rice are grows.
Of course, whoieaal or for a large quantity, prices are le
than th above, which are those of null dealer. Th wag)
of newly-Introduced Immigrant are ooe or maybe two dollars
less er month than th above, which la for saea who have
served their Industrial residence. Of th T dollar th laborer
receives from H to 4 dollars la money, and th balane la
food, etc. If l mind right, tbe newly-Introduced laborer re
ceive two dollar per month for lh Brat year, ft.84 pee
month for the (ecood year, $1 to the third, X7 por mouth
the fourth, and f 3 per month for th fifth, besides food, et.
The scale of food Is 11 lb, of ric per week, a small rjuaullty
of doll, I. ., split peas, gbee, rancid butler, coco nut oil. salt
fish, salt, pepper, chilis, soap, and a smalt quantity f eurrle
stuff. His ration he augments with vegetable from Lis bit of
a garden or gathered In th fields.
6. Are they valuable a colonists t
Answer They mak excellent colociiXs sober, quiiit, thrifty
and Industrious, after their own fashion. Tli.-j Lave a gnat
liking for agricultural pursuit, and aom of thesa hav the
capacity of carrying on agricultural operations on aa exunsiv
scale, either on their own or w ploy era' aroouot, mar espe
cially tbe former.
7. Are they generally strong and hearty f
Answer There are strong, powerful men among th Indians,
!Ut aa a rule they are cot big men. However, they are pro
portionally well made, have more th appearance of agility
than strength, and they are stronger and more rodurlng lhau
at sight they would appear to be. Iter are generally timid
and cautious with strangers, frank and hearty with their
tquaU, and respectful to their superior.
8. Are they subject to much diseaaaf
Answer When weU fed they are not snore ul jcl ia dis
ease than any other rare.
9. How is n ediral attendance providej f
Answer The planters provide II, pay the medical attendant
on bis laborer, supply medicines, medical comfort, etc Th
doctor for th planiatien suust. by law, visit the plantation
twice a week and keep a proper record of all th patUnls, Hi
disease and treatment of each. Th planter furnlahe hos
pital accommodations according to th number cf mea ni
pl'yed on th plantation.
10. Do they give trouble by frivolous or groundless Com
plaints sgaiost tbetr employers t
Answer Occasionally ibey do, but urh complaint are
punished by law, and they ar by no mean frequent.
11. liow are difficulties between them and employer set
Answer Minor difficulties which may arise betwreo master
and errant engaged Indian laborer on plantalkto are
settled on the plantation by th Inspector of Immigrant.
Other of Importance by the stipendiary magistral ol Hi dis
trict. 12. Do the employer complain of unnecessary, inqulsltiv or
inconvenient interference by officers locking after lb interests
of the laborers I
Answer Complaint of (hit kind are not unknown In Mau
ritius. But to judg from remits, It would be dillicult ta say
that the interference of the authorities were unnecessary or
not. Of course th Government would not allow any of it
servants, without a gravt reason or csuae, to interfere between
a master and his sen ant. On the other haod, had th
tiorernment cauae, on complaint lodged by the laborer, to be
lieve that the laborer wa being unfairly treated, a searching
inquiry into tbe whole matter would be made by a magistral
or other duly qualified person, and Ihe raus of trouble ex
posed to the tight of day and the offender duly punished. Hy
the appointment of inspectors of Immigrants to investigate ou
the spot the complaints of planter against their Indian labor
ers, and laborers against masters, esses of great cry and III lie
wool bave been put down. And besides these enses, often too
frivolous for bringing before a magistrate, ar al once etlled,
Instead af being allowed to fester and canker and beoocun
ores, giving endless trouble to cut out and beal.
13. What are the advantages to tx derived froia Introducing
East Indians t
Answer From tbe foregoing it will be seen that th IntSlaa
immigrant 1 a valuable man in a tropical country a a labor
ing colonial. Of all the race with which I have been brought
into contact lb Indian is th best for a tropical eokiolst. A
a laborer and a man he I immeasurably superior to the savage
race of Polynesia for a colonist. 11 very read.'ly mlxe with
kindred race, and easily adapt himself to th way and man
ners of the country to which h ha emigrated, as can b aeeo
by numerous example. He fully understands th value of
money, the necessity of industrious labor, sobriety and frugal
ity. He has no political combinations, and if hi religious
belief differ from other, ha doe not meddle with those who
do not trouble hi n. Many of them in Mauritius and elsewhere
are Cbrh-tiani, and give freely of their own to uphold their
teachers. Many of them who are not Christiana will listen fur
hour to tbe discourse of a Christian minister or teacher
when thes visit them on the plantations. Number of them
settle ia tbe country of their adoption, and aa la Mauritius and
Ceylon, have become Invaluable a laboring colonist for Ik
performance of all works which cannot b carried out profit
ably without an abundant and ufllcient supply of cheap
labor. They generally hav tarre families, marrv ear! v. aia
fond of and attentive to their children. They Ilk their chil
dren to be educated in their own language and that of thlr
adopted country. A laborer, two or three hundred thousand
of them would be invaluable In th Hawaiian Kingdom, not all
merely aa laborer oo augar, coffee or tea plantation, but also,
a in Mauritius, for supplying ihe little necessities which (very
community requires. (Signed) J. Hoax a.

the subject. The information supplied by Mr.
Homo was inlttreatinfir, and was doubtless correct
in regard to the state of things In Maarltiaa, but
Ihe accounts given of the coolies in British Guiana
were quite dinerent. in regard to obtaining
coolies from India, be stated that tbe conventions
between Great Britain and France and other
countries contained provisions stipulating that tbe
labor laws oi tne Colonies takinst JJusi In llana
should be similar to tboso of Martinique ; and that
be was lniormea Dy one oi il. li. M.'s Commissioners
of Emigration that the East Indian government
would doubtlers prefer those of Trinidad, and
would require that on laws should conform to
those of that Colony. He obtained a copy of
those laws, and observed that they required that
all immigrants be paid at Ibe same rale of wagea
as other indentured labor on tbe same or neigh
boring plantations. Tbe conventions further stip
ulated for the return of the East Indians to India,
and arranged for the intervention of tbe British
Consul, and constant access to the Consul. Mr. 0.
said that he bad made particular inrulries at
the Iudia Office in London regarding (be
probability of getting modifications of tbeaa
regulatioub, and wu told that tbe British
Colonies bad for many years been trying to get
such modifications and bud failed t' get them, and
that it the Indian government conceded them In
one case they mut-t in others : and therefore ho
could see for himself bow small the chance was
that Ibey would make aucb modifications tn our
behalf. Mr. C. also stated that ba bad occasion to
know how strenuously tbe British government ad
bered to tbe principle of treating all countries
alike, and could see that however friendly In Its
disposition it was unlikely It would urge the
Indian government to grant us more than was
granted to British Colonies. He also remarked
that a Convention with such stipulations would
bave been contrary to our laws and beyond bis
powers to make, in fact beyond the powers of any
one but the Legislative Assembly and Ills Maj
esty ; ana tho ptospect of getting tbe necessary
concessions was in tbe nature of thing so alight
that he did not think itjustlfied tbe expense of go
injr to India to negotiate.
Judge Hams said be could bear testimony to
the industry of i'r. Carter wbile in London (be
being there himself at the time and in frequent
communication with Mr. C.) In making enquiries
as to coolie immigration.
Mr. idemaon fuvored a thorough investigation
of tbe subject before taking any action. lie was
decidedly of the opinion that tbe idea of bringing
laborers bere at much smaller wages than is paid
to those already bere, would not work.
Mr. Green favored tbe suggestion ol appointing;
a committee to thoroughly investigate and report
at a subsequent meeting.
Hon. Mr. Rhodes thought no more Inloimatloa,
Mich as we could obtain bere, was needeJ, But
whatever might be done in tbe way of appoio'fng
a committee, be should send in to tbe government
the memorial (wblcn was published lust week)
and which bud been signed by a number of planters.
It was still open for signatures. Any further in
formation on tbe subject to be of value, mnst, In
bis opinion, be got from India.
Mr. Justice Judd thought that a memorial like
this should not be sent to tbe King over tbe beads
of His Majesty's constitutional advisers.
Hon. Mr. Rhodes disclaimed any such intention.
M r. Davis said the memorial spoken of was cot
before tbe meeting. He bad been much interest
ed in the statement by Mr. Catter which were all
new to bim. He favored the appointment f a
committee to investigate the subject thoroughly,
and also to confer with tbe government.
Mr. Widemann said the course to pursue in
order to get full information would be to send a
commissioner to India.
Judge Harris did not favor sporadic memorials,
and advocated the appointment of a committee.
Mr. Hartwell spoke of Mr. Carter's enthusiasm
in tbe East Indian immigration project when be
act out on his mission to Europe.
Hon. Mr. Carter stated that be thought the
subject of labor and population of so mucb im
portance that a committee should be appointed
to get alt information possible regarding any
sources of supply, and to co-operate witb tbe
Board of Immigration. He therefore offered
the following resolution, which was carried:
"Resolved, that this meeting appoint a com-'
mittee of five, to consider tbe information
laid before St and any otber obtainable inform
ation on tbe subject of labor and population
for tbis Kingdom, and to confer witb tbe Board of
Immigration, and finally to report to a subsequent
meeting to be called by the Chairman at the re
quest of the committee."
Tbe meeting then adjourned.
