Mju Editob : It is remarkably surprising how
!onioas the Heathen Chinese are. Though their
looks are blsnd " and innocent, yet they are ex
tremely calculating "ia trickt that are vain."
There is now ia oar midst a Chinese Theatrical Com
pany, and it is asserted by those wto seem to be in
formed, that it consists of seventy members. The
grand stars of this goodly company, positively.state
that, for the successful performance of dramatic
efforts, It is necessary that the company he allowed
the privilege to partake of that oul entrancing and
InspiriniTirug called opium. My China-boy in
fanned &: last night, that he was going to join the
Chinese Theatricals. After asking him the reason of
his joining the said theatricals, he answered, " Me
smokes opum, Miaee Wildee gibee chancee smokee
cpum. No can smokee, no can plsyee." So this
magnetic company are going to petitioa the Minister
cf the Interior to f rivilege them in the consumption

Such diplomacy on the part of Mr. John evinces
'very Bice and delicate skill in his art of cunning
ness and strategy. Once permitted to use opium,
from which to draw, by swift inhalation and slow
exhalation, the grand and godlike inspiration that
rivea dramatia effect to his personal efforts, Mr.
John will glory over the numerical host of aiders,
which this wise strske of diplomacy will rally to bis
privileged den, Cms.

Nv A VISIT TO THE VOLCANO.
Unquestionably the most ezpeditioas ta well as
pleasant and (atisfactorv trip to the Volcano of
Kilauea and back that has ever been accomplish
ed, was that performed by the part which Jeft
Honolulu on Tuesday the 18th instant, at 4 p.

having been absent four dajs and thirteen hours.
His Excellency the Minister of the Interior was
the hoot, the steamer Like like the conveyance,
and the invited guests were oar distinguished
visitors from California Dr. Gwin, Gov. Low,
Hon. Mef-rrn. Money and McCoppin, and others,
including enteral ladies. The entire trip was
planned in all ita details by Mr. Wilder, and the
schedule was thoroughly carried out almost to a
minute, from the start to the return. We will
give the steamer's time of arrival at different
points on the upward trip, which will be of in
terest when we remember the old-time " leer

schooner between the Islands. Leaving Hono

Thirty-six hours from Honolulu to Uilo, in
cluding stoppages to land the mails, passengers
and freight at six different ports must be con
ceded as excellent time. During all the voyage
the weather was propitious, the winds were gen
tle aire, (fur the trades) and not a drop of rain
Two of the original party left the steamer at
Maalaea, for the purpose of visiting the sugar
estates of East Maui some of the most flourish
ing on the Islands and more particularly to
personally inspect the progress of the famous
Ditch and Irrigation Works of the Hawaiian
Commercial Company, of which Claus Sprecklcs,
Enq. was the projector and II. Schuesler, Eaq. is
the engineer, and of which more anon.
Touching at Makena (Malee's Landing) at
7 o'clock on Weneeday morning, the steamer
croeecd the frequently rough channel between
Maui and Hawaii with much less than the usual
amount of rolling, arriving at Kawaihae at 1.15
p.m. and at Mahukona, the principal landing and
port of embarkation of the rich agricultural dis
trict of Kobala, at 3.30. There are six thriving
sugar plantations in Kobala, and room for six
more, which it will have when the railroad is
built. Here two more of the excursionists left
the steamer for the purpose of M prospecting
while the main party pursued their way towards
Uilo, whence the land journey was made to the
volcano. After leaving the landing the steamer
passed rapidly along the shores of Kobala, in
smooth water, and the bright sunlight of a trop
ical afternoon. The scenery was at once bcauti
ful and grand. On the right was the fertile Ko
bala district, sloping from the seashore to the
distant wooded mountain range, the white houses
of the inhabitants dotting the landscape and
shining in the afternoon sun, with here and there
the tall chimney of a sugar mill amidst the deep
er or lighter green of the surrounding fields of
cane. On the left the Island of Maui, with its
immense extinct crater of Haleakala, showing a
well defined outline above the clouds which, low
er down, clung about the seamed and precipitous
windward side of the island. Steaming around
the North end of the Island of Hawaii, night over
took the steamer before the tourists could get
more than a glimpeo of the grand scenery of Ha
makua, with its steep and rock bound coast and
great gulches, down which flow never-failing
streams of water the district which contains
more rich cane land than any other in the Is
lands. At 11 o'clock at night the steamer stop
ped at Laupahoehoe (one of the big gulches) to
land passengers and mail, and then on to ililo,
where she arrived at 4 o'clock in the morning,
and aroused the inhabitants with the scream of
her whistle before daybreak.- In fact, she Was
considerably ' ahead of time " all along the
rou'e from Honolulu, and caused people on shore
to inquire what's up ?"
As our tourists stood on the deck of the steam
er while daylight came over the wide expanse of
ocean to the eastward and gradually lighted up
the scene, the beauties of Uilo and its surround
ings drew forth universal expressions of adniira
tion. Just in front was the town (or whilom
village) of Uilo, built upon the semi-circle of
the bay, on the sandy beach of which the break
ers roared and foamed, and embowered amongst
dense foliage of tropical growth were the white
cottages of the residents with here and there a
modest cturcb spire. To the north were seen
the tall chimneys of eugar mills.
In the background was the towering peak of
Mauna Kea, 13,805 feet above the level of the
sea. the highest land in the group. Farther to
the south eest was Mauna Loa, like a huge dome,
only about 100 feet lower than its twin, having
an altitude of 13,700 feet.
Leaving the pleasant town of Uilo and its hos
pitable residents at half-past 8 o'clock on Thurs
day morninz. the party rode on horsebaak
a 49 " AV er
through the umbrageous wilds along the uplands,
without encountering a single shower of rain a
remarkable circumstance for Ililo, even at this
season and arrived at the " balf-way bouse "
at half-past 12 o'clock. Here a rest was bad
and lunch, and at 2 p.m. at the call of the omni
present and ever vigilant host and leader (Mr.
Wilder) the party was mounted and away
again on the long upward stretch over undula
ting 41 jaboeboe " leading to the crater. The
Volcano House was reached at two minutes past
six o'clock, only two minutes behind the time
previously announced by our Lost and guide as
that at which we should arrive at the great goal of
our expectations. And here an agreeable as well
as exciting surprise awaited ns. That very day
at the hour of ten in the morning, the volcano
which, with the exception of occasional demon
strations of lile bad been rather torpid as if in
honor of the strangers who bad come so far to
visit it bad burst forth in an eruption of unusual
power and grandeur. From the old pit of Hale
maumau, (in Hawaiian, ' House of Everlasting
Fire ") in which although the fire has never
quite disappeared since the memory of man, and
wherein it has sometimes Iain for months like a
sleeping giant, it had burst forth with renewed
life, and the pit was seething like a vast cauldron,
throwing high its pillars of liquid Sre and flame,
and sending forth its streams of lava, with loud
explosions and strange subterranean sounds,
As though an earthquake smack 'd Its mumbling lips
O'er some thick-peopled city."
The Volcano Houee, at which the party were to
pass the night, is a well-appointed and generally
well-managed hostelry, situated near the brink of
the great crater of Kilauea, on the southern edge.
From its verandah after supper the touridts had
an excellent view of the magnificent display of na
ture's pyrotechnics going on before them in the
great pit, one thousand feet deep and nine miles
in circumference. Tbo glare of the liquid flowing
j rocks, even at a distance of three miles from the
; spectator, was like that of a vast forest on fire,

fell in lambent flame like the blast from some
But " early to bed and early to rise " was the
! monition from our host end cbaperone, so the
hour of 10 p. at. found everybody in bed and un
der blankets for Kilauea is six thousand feet
above the sea level and the air i decidedly cool
after nightfall. At a quarter before 5 o'clock on
Monday morning the entire party proceeded to
make the descent into the crater. This was done
in single file, following a native guide, and the
distance down the side of the abyss to the ledge
or shelf which intervened before we reached the
region of perpetual fire is about 800 feet. It is
rather steep, but well worn by the fet of fre
quent tourists, and comparatively easy of descent.
' Facills descensus averno." Over a rpugh bed of
clinkers and volcanic rocks, thrown about in
every conceivable shape, our party proceeded un
der the leadership of the native guide until they
came to the ledge overlooking the South Lake, as
it is called, a mass of liquid lava, from perLaps a
quarter of a mile in some places to four or five
hundred feet broad, the fiery mass some five hun
dred feet below the ledge, staying and surging
hither and yon, like the tides of the ocean.
Thence to the flow, which had poured forth from
Ualemaumau the previous day and nigbt, to tbe
length of two miles or more. The force of the
eruption bad subsided for the time, but the river
of fire was still there, though it no longer ran,
and standing on tbe brink our tourists thrust
the ends of their long sticks into tbe 6eething
mass and withdrew them all aflame.
But time pressed, and having gratified their
curiosity in seeing the Hawaiian Elephant one
of the wonders of tbe world the party returned
from out of this " bottomless pit," from the
neighborhood of the lake which burneth with
fire and brimstone," to the surface and terra
firma, with the feeling. which everyone experiences
after having been close to a live volcano, that
they had been singularly thoughtless of danger at
the time. For there is no telling at what mo
ment the whole treacherous bottom of the crater
may tumble in. In the presence of these partial
but mighty exhibitions of Nature's concealed for
ces, man is powerless and cannot be otherwise
than serious. No wonder Jhat here the ancient
Uawaiiana located the residence of a vengeful
deity. But the New Dispensation has taught -us
" The dread volcano ministers to good ;
Ita smothered flames might undermine the world ;
Loud tnaa jEfulmlnate In love to man."
Mingled with our sense of gratification at the
wondrous sights we Lad seen, was a feeling of re
gret which will be lasting, that we could not
have tarried longer at Kilauea. As it is, the
memory of the brief episode wiil be lifelong.
We reached the Volcano House at half-past
8, having spent three hours in the crater. After
an excellent breakfast, for the enjoyment of
which the mountain air and the exercise had giv
en sharp appetites, we started at 10 o'clock for
tbe seashore, where, at the port of Keaubou, the
steamer was to meet and take us on board for the
return voyage, at 3 r. u. The road from Kilauea
to Keaubou is down hill, and a dreary ride over
" clinkers " and ' pahoeboc " rocks. The mon
otony was somewhat relieved by a chase after
wild turkeys, of which quite a number were seen,
and two of the party succeeded in capturing five
by running them down. Arrived at the landing
of Keaubou at fifteen minutes before 2 p. m., and
tbe steamer came in at 2.40. At 3 o'clock we
were under way for Mahukona direct. Little of
tbe Kau district was seen before darkness inter
vened, but tbe glimpse that was had of tbe region
about Pahala, showed things looking quite green.
Passing the great districts of Kau and Kona during
the night, the Likehke arrived at Mahukona, in
Kobala, at 4.30 on Saturday morning. 'Forty
minutes thereafter tbe excursionists were on their
way on horseback to Kobala Plantation, some
ten or twelve miles inland. After an inspection
of the works and grounds of this, one of tbe most
successful and well managed sugar estates in the
group, and partaking of a substantial breakfast,
tbe party returned to the steamer, which left for
Maalaea on Maui, at 12.15. Tbe channel between
tbe two Islands was crossed in three and a-half
hours, and after a short detention at Makee's
landing, Maalaea was reached at 6 p. u. Here
two of tho party went on shore to visit the East
Maui Plantations and the irrigation works, and
those who had left us on the way up for a simi
lar purpose came on board. Leaving Maalaea
about 7 o'clock and touching at Lahaina for a
half an hour, we arrived at Honolulu at 5 o'clock
a. v. on Sunday morning.
The writer is aesured that he speaks tbe uni
ted and hearty sentiment of all who composed the
party of tourists to Maui and Hawaii and back to
Honolulu, when he states that the excursion waa
not only a success, in the usual acceptation of the
term, but a most enjoyable one in every particu
lar ; and to Mr. Wilder for bis untiring attention
to the needs and comfort of his guests, we are
mainly indebted for that result.
Is government absolutely powerless to prevent
or control tbe incoming tide of male Chineso
immigration ? At first there was some ground
for excuse in permitting it, in tbe pressing need
for labor on the sugar plantations; but that need
is no longer pressing. As we are advised, labor
ers are to be bad in sufficient numbers to meet
requirements at fair wages. Besides, here are
the recently arrived Portuguese, and tbe prospec
tive immigration of South Sea Islanders. But
the undesirable Celestials are now filling the
country, and more are coming, and they will
continue to come in increasing numbers, bo long
as there is no check applied. We are informed
that the Euphemia from Hongkong is on tbe way
with two hundred and fifty, and the Discovery will
also bring a large number from San Francisco.
Is it not time that the eyes of tbe Ministry were
open to the suicidal policy of this continued in
flux of male Chinese or have they so little re
gard for the future prospects of the native people
and of the country as to look on with indiffer
ence while both are being swamped and ruined?
Is the Hawaii of the future to become tbe heri
tage of tbe Mongolian, in preference to tbe
native and the Caucasian? Such appears to be
the present drift of things. Here is a significant
paragraph from a late Oregon paper :
' Major J. R. Bean, who left here for Honolulu
some two months ago, intending, if suited with the
prospect, to move bis family there and settle down,
returned here again last evening. Honolulu, be
says, is no place for an American. Tbe Chinese
have practically gained control of tbe islands. They
have intermarried with the natives and gained their
friendship, and consequently the trade of the islands.
There are several large Chinese establishments in
Honolulu, he says, duiDg business on a capital of
half a million, and who are rapidly driving their
American competitors to the wall."
The people of California,' our next neighbors
and beet customers have shown by their action
in the adoption of the new Constitution, that
tbey regard tbe presence of the Chinese among
them es an unmitigated evil; and that Stat, the
best and strongest friend to our Reciprocity tieaty,
has already signified through the columns of its
most influential newspapers, that if we continue
to receive the Chinese in unlimited numbers, tbe
inducements for the continuance of our treaty
will be very materially lessened. The appoint
ment of a Chinese merchant as a member of the
Prfvy Council (however unexceptionable he may
be to us as a worthy citizen) will be viewed by
our neighbors as an event significant of future
Chinese progress here, and not by any means as
an indication of growing Caucasian principles
and civilisation. Verbvm tap.
Library and Beading Room.
e are pleased to sec that tbis institution which is
designed to meet a real need in tbis community, is
exhibiting a very commendable degree of enter
prise in the line of its appointed work. At the
last busiut'sa meeting. new Constitution and By
Laws were adopted, of th most liberal and prac
tical character. Tbe mrmberthip ia now open to
ail respectable persons of sixt-n years old and
upwards without quahScation of race, creed, or
any distinction whatever either natural or artifi
cial. The rooms are open every week day from
10 a. M. to 10 p. it., and on Sundays, from 9 a. it.
to 9 P. M. Cooks from tbe library may
be drawn out and returned every day and evening
except Sundays. By. the last arrival from San
Francisco an invoice of books was received em-,
bracing a number of tbe latest works of tbe most
popular authors. These are now on the shelves
and at the disposal of members. The library
whicb already contains nearly nine hundred vol
umes and is constantly increasing, comprises a
very good and diversified collection ol reading,
calculated to suit a variety ot tastes. Tbe supply
of papeis and periodicals regularly supplied to the
reading room is for a town of this size exceeding
ly liberal. S me of these are cubscribed for by
the association and oibers are furnished through the
liberality of friend. Tbe following can be found

It is furthermore the desire and intention of tbe
officers of tbe association to provide not only a
reading room and library but also a convenient
place of pleasant resort, open at all reasonable
hours, where persons so disposed can spened their
leisure time agreeably as well as proBlably. With
tbis idea tbey have provided checker and chess
boards, dominos &c. which the members are free
to use at all times except Sundays, tbe only re
striction placed upon tbe use of games being that
there shall be no gambling that is to say no play
ing for stakes.
A separate room is provided for conversation,
Karnes Ac. so that those wbo desire to spend their
leisure time in a more sociable manner can do so
without in any way interfering with the quiet nec
essary to be preserved in a readiug room proper.
Tbe association have just secured a five years
lease of tho entire upper part of tbe building
where tbey are now located and will thus be ena
bled to enlarge their accommodations and pro
vide additional facilities for mental culture and
rational enjoyment as tbe needs ot the public and
the income of the organization may from time to
time warrant. The sum required from each indi
vidual member is quite small ; viz one dollar ini
tiation fee and fifty cents per month dues. No
formality is required in becoming a member ex
cept to sign tbe roll and pay the prescribed dues
when called for by tbe Treasurer. A careful esti
mate shows that at tbe above rate, a membership
of from two hundred and Gtty to three hundred
will be sufficient to pay all current expenses, keep
tbe reading room liberally supplied with news
papers and current periodical literature and leave
a surplus each year to be applied to tbe purchase
of books of permanent value for the library.
There ought in our opinion to be no question
about securing tbe necessary support for an insti
tution so well started, so intelligently organized,
so liberally conducted and so much needed as tbis
Knights of tub Lash. The hackmen at Niagara
Falls have obtained a world-wide, questionable rep
utation for themselves by the extortion tbey practice
upon the stranger wbo visits that wonder of the
world; and from the numerous complaints made of
late it would seem as if many of the express drivers
of tbis city were attempting to follow to a certain
extent tbe example set by their continental brother
knights of the lash. This bad practice of theirs
will not prevail, however, if the employer of a car
riage will pay attention to the following simple rules
and be guided accordingly. First Ask for the list
of prices, which every driver is supposed to have on
a card. Second If charged more than stated on
that list, pay tbe amount requested, and take tbe
number of the express. Third Report the number
of tbe wagon and the faots of tbe case at the Police
Station. By complying with these rules all bicker
ing or argument is avoided, and the overcharged
one will receive ample redress. Our officers are
willing to do their duty when the opportunity is
given. Try them stranger, and judge for your
self. To Policy Holders in the Security Life
In the fall of 1878 and igain last March, I called at tbe
office of the Receiver cf the Security Life Insurance
Company in New York City together with Mr. Wheeler
my correspondent. We found that the settlement of the
Company's accounts was delayed by litigation,-there be
ing two classes of claimi refused by the Receiver and re
ferred to the courts. One of these, included those policy
holders who had paid thsir premiums partly or wholly in
promissory notes, they claming pro rata dividends with
the rest of the claimants, regardless of their outstanding
notes. The other class included the heirs of such policy
holders as had paid theii premiums before the failure of
tbe company and had dld after the failure but within
the time covered by their last premiums ; these claim to
be paid the amount of tbeir policies in full before the
ordinary claimants receive anything. You will see that
both of these cases if deyided favorably would prejudice
Hawaiian policy holders, most of whom paid their
premiums in cash. At my last visit I read the decision
of the Recorder on botb points and found it unfavorable
to the petitioners and cf course favorable to you. The
cases had been taken cp to the court of Appeals and
were then still pending. The Receiver believed that
pro rata dividends of 5C per cent would be paid, unless
the Recorder's rulicg should be reversed, in that
case the amounts accniing to regular claimants would
be insignificant. I gathered also that it waa unlikely
that the amount paid oit by a policy holder in premiums
with interest would be allowed in full as a claim, but
that this sum would be discounted by the amount of
benefit he was suppose! to have received by being insur
ed for the time. I hopt to be able to give more satisfact
ory information on all points pertaining to your claims
at an early date. San ford B. Dole,
Attorney for Claimants against the Security
Life Insurance Co. Honolulu 27th, August 1879.

FORGETFULNESS of PEOPLE !
LET US SEE WHAT iT AMOUNTS TO.
The ReT. Dr. Hale was said to represent this class of
peraona lo a charm. He once went to the post office for his
letters; the Postmaster asked Mm his name. After a few
momenta hesitation he said, " truly, I have forgot." On his
way home to ask hia wile, he met a friend who extended his
hand, saying, "Good morning Dr. Hale." "Ah! yes, that's
it," said be, and retraced his steps for his letters
You may see many in Honolulu equally forgetful. For In
stance, aee that man on the street trying to smoke his cigar.
Puff, puff, puff, but its no go; it has lost its heat. Cast your
eye around and observe that other gentleman chest thrown
forward, head back, hat on three hairs, and hia every move
ment indicates a feeling of superiority. H is forgetful friend
says, " Where did you get that cigar t"
" Where else but at M A KCH A NT'S 1 "
