rp According to private advices of May 7th,
Messrs. "Williams, Dimond & Co., had tele
graphed to Sydney, to instruct the captains of
P. M. S. steamers not to call at Honolulu, as
they will in such case be quarantined iu the
port of San Francisco 7 or 8 days. However,
we presume that this precautionary advice will
not prevent their calling here for mails ; so that
they may save their subsidy.
The " Royal Hawaiian Theatre" is de
molished. The little temple, cor. of Hotel and
Alakea streets, where Biscacianti, Madame
States, the Carandinis, Florence Colville, and
others in past times, and recently the Wells
Tronpe.delighted Honolulu theatre goers, is now
a mass of building debris ; and the present pro
prietor Dr. McGrew is about to erect a new
structure, for public amusement or for other
purposes possibly, not yet determined.
lt?" The. latest news from the volcano indi
cates continued activity, though not of a very
demonstrative kind. The extreme end of the
flow of lava advances extremely slowly. It is
situated a few miles from Hilo, to the eastward
of the town and stil! within the forest. Should
it, as seems now so probable, force its way to
the sea, it will pass a little to the south of Hilo
and must do considerable damage to the Wai-
akea plantation.if it does not entirely destroy it.
XJT The present state of the labor market in
Honolulu may be judged from the fact that the
Chinese who have recently left here for San
Francisco to the number of about one hundred.
have been attracted by the report that hands are
wanted on the railways in course of formation in
the United States. That there is any surplus
labor in Honolulu is however due to the fact
that engagements with employers on the other
islands cannot be profitably made on aceount of
the present very necessary quarantine regula

A couple of blocks along King Street
beyond Mr. Ward's artesian well, Messrs. Cooke
and Peddler have made a successful boring for
Mr.Loo Ngawk. This new well is about a hundred
yards inakai of the line of the street, and is in
tended to supply water to rice fields now being
redeemed from waste of the rushes that lies
between King Street and the sea. Water was
struck at a depth of C02 feet, and a little below
that depth a supply was secured at least twice
as great as that of Mr. Ward's well. We have
some interesting notes on this subject for next
r5 Capt. Brown's Mortuary Report for the
month of May, presents only one notable feature
viz : the marked decrease iu the number of
deaths from small-pox. There are only 32 as
against 77 in the previous month and 123 in
March. Of the deaths from other causes in May
10 are recorded as " from old age." It must be
noted with regret that out of ninety-eight deaths,
no less than thirty-sis were cases in which the
deceased received no medical attendance. The
number of these unattended cases has often been
a subject of remark and it is painful to find the
u-gloct of medical advice so decidedly on the
ncrease as this return shows it to be.
"Jr A kahuna's bundle, containing what may
be called death-charms was found by some boys
in one of the streams near town, close to a
frequented bathing place. It contained kalo,
fish, awa root, sugar cane, etc. The idea of the
would-be sorcerer is presumed to have been that
the victim, whom he is " praying to death,"
vould go to his usual bathing place and so fall
under the influence of the spell to be communi
cated by the contents of the bundle. The
superstition connected with these practices
seems still to be as widespread among the
natives, as the belief in witchcraft was two
hundred years ago iu other parts of Christendom.
ttT During the past we-jk one of the patent
Odorless Excavators for wiich Mr. C. O. Berger
is tbe agent in this Kingdom, has been put to
work in Honolulu by the Board of Health. The
want of a proper receptacle for the nightsoil of
the city was immediately felt. To get rid of
that removed by the Excavator, a series of holes
were dug on unoccupied land mauka of the
residences of well Inowu citizens on Beretania
street, aud the deposit as received there was
buried at once. But immediate burial did not
prove sufficient to prevent a uuisanee arising
frou this improvised "Manure Depot." Such
unbearable o.lors were developed during the
process of discharge into the pits, that the resi
dents in the neighborhood at once besieged the
Minister of the Interior who, we are glad to
record, promptly capitulated and ordered the
nuisance to be carried off to the neighborhood of
some one else's nostrils. When is all the talk
tbout sanitary measures for Honolulu to result
in some practical work in that direction ? The
whole town is as rri-od (- -
whcue.vi a heavy rain, like that of Tnursday
In China they use as a means of identi
fication, the print of a man's thumb. Whenever
a man falls into the hands of any officer of the
law ; one of the first things done is to take a
print of his thumb: it is smeared with lampblack,
partially wiped, aud then pressed down upon a
piece of fine white rice paper. Let any one
examine the print of his thumb taken in this
way, and he will find that it presents a curious
aud interesting diagram of tiny ridges or cords
wound round and round in intricate spirals.
And no two thumbs in all the world are exactly
alike. A student of thumb prints is said to
recognize with a great deal of precision the iden
tity of an individual. The Chinese police
place more confidence in a thumb print, than in
tbe photo, of a face as a guarantee of identity
a;nong Chinese physiognomies. Our authorities
would do well to look into this matter. They no
loubt understand doing things by rule of thumb,
and appreciate highly the situation of a man
under their thumb. But let them take lessons
in thumb delineation ; and when they get their
thumb on a man, to be sure and take his thumb,
in case they may want him again. Thumb
things can be done as well as others.
fJS A boy who inhabits Beretania street, tried
an old joke on his aunt.

" This morning he got up early."
" Yes, yes, and had an "

Auntie in an excited tone.
" Just wait. He said he felt very well. Mrs.
Brown was doing some popovers at the stove,
and Brown he went out to throw some paddy to
the hens. He came back to the house, still
rubbing his hands and saying that he felt well."
"Why don't you go on? What happened ?
" Wait, I say auntie, till I get breath. I've
run all the way, over five blocks. VelI, he sat
down, and just gobbled up the popovers. When
he got up from the table, he said again he felt
very well. Then he turned round, and just as
he got half way between the table and where the
water monkey stands, you know Auntie, he "

Brown he felt much better after the popovers."

Auntie, and as she seized tne oroom our ooy

cared for till death, and buried at the expense of the
Society; 2 have been assisted to leave the country; 3 are
no longer in distress; and 4 are still drawing assistance
from the Society.
Hon. Godfrey Rhodes, said that thanks were
due to the gentlemen who have assisted to

had been conducted. lie moved the adoption of
the Treasurer's Report.
Mr. E. B. Thomas, seconded the motion,
which was carried unanimously.
The Vice-President, Rev. A. Macintosh,
moved a vote of thanks to those members of
their own Society, who had taken an active part
in the concert, by which a considerable sum had
been raised for the benefit of the Society. The
thanks of the Society had already been tendered
to those who are not members, who had so kind
ly assisted at the conceit, and he thought, that
his present motion was one which should not be
The motion was duly seconded and carried.
Mr. Young, remarked that in going round to
collect subscriptions, he and others had been
met with the remark, that it was only those of
one nationality that obtained any assistance
from the Committee. He should like to ask the
Treasurer, if he could tell him the nationalities
of those who had been helped during the past
Hon. Mr. Cleghorn, in reply said, that the
record had been kept and he was able to state
that of the 17 relieved during the past year: G
were Englishmen, on whom was expended
$81G 50; 7 were Irishmen, $221 50; 2 Scotch
men, 10; 1 British Indian, $J'J 50; and 1 a
West Indian Islander, $71 50.
Hon. G. Rhodes, remarked that he knew from
his own experience, that it was necessary to
use much caution in giving relief of the charac
ter this Society desired to dispense.
Hon. Mr. Cleghorn, said, he had made it a
rule not to give relief in any case, except on the
written order of the Vice-President or the Com
mittee. Mr. Young, enquired if the Vice-President
had authority to order relief without first obtain
ing the assent of the Relief Committee to his
After some remarks on this point, from Mr.
Bickerton and others;
The Vice-President rose and said, that in this
matter he fouud he was a delinquent, as the rules
of the Society did not confer such authority up
on him. The cases iu which he had thus
acted were some of extreme urgency, in several
of them, as would be seen from the Treasurer's
Report, the recipients of relief had been at
death's door. He should, however, have con
formed to rule had he not overlooked the pro-
certainly do so in future, if he held office again.
The Vice-President and other Officers of the
Society were then unanimously re-elected as fol
lows: Vice-President, Rev. A. Macintosh;
Treasurer, Hon. A. S. Cleghorn; Secretary, Mr.
J. S. Smithies; Consulting Committee, Hon. G.
Rhodes, and Messrs. Young and Geo. Lucas.
A vote of thanks to the Officers and Commit
tee of the Society, for their services during the
past year, was passed by acclamation.
The Vice-President, said that it was desirable
to take the sense of the meeting, as to the pro
priety of c ontinuing the Quarterly Meetings,
which are ordered by the rules. In compliance
with a resolution passed at the last Annual
Meeting, these had been duly called at the end
of the first and second quarters of the year, but
no one attended, except the members of tLo
committee. The end of the third quarter fall
ing in the midst of the small-pox epidemic, a
meeting had not then been called. He should
like to know the view of the meeting on
Some discussion followed and the propriety of
continuing to celebrate the Anniversary of the
Society, by a dinner or supper was raised by
Dr. Robt. McKibbin, who said that many sub
scribers objected to paying $2 50 for a dinner
ticket, in addition to the annual subscription.
He for one would like to see the thing done
Mr. E. B. Thomas, said that many members
objected to the supper, because they would like
to see it replaced by a dance, to which they
could bring their wives and daughters.
Hon. Mr. Cleghorn.said that various methods
of celebrating the day had been attempted.
When there was no other attraction than the
ordinary business of the Annual Meeting, they
found members did not attend. They had tried
lectures and addresses, and these had been
found too dry, and he thought the present
method had proved (a voice too wet") more
generally successful than any other. It was,
however, desirable that the matter should have
careful consideration, in order to see if a change
were desirable, and he would suggest that a
committee of three or five, all of them gentle
men not connected with the Managing Commit
tee, should be appointed to consider and report
The Treasurer's suggestion was adopted, and
the following gentlemen were appointed a com
mittee to deal with the question: Messrs. Bick
erton, Freeth, E. B. Thomas, Young and Dr.
Hutchinson. No resolution as to the Quarterly
Meetings was passed, but it was understood
that they would be called as usual in accordance
with the existing rule. The strictly business
part of the evening's proceeding being now at
an end, the company at the Chairman's sug
gestion adjourned to supper.
After supper, in proposing the toast of the
evening, Major Wodehouse said: " The first
toast which I have to propose is that of Her
Majesty Queen Victoria. It requires little com
ment from me, and I will only remark that the
esteem and respect with which she is regarded
not only by her own subjects but by members
of other nationalities was never more clearly
shown than on the occasion of the performance
of H. M, S. Pinafore, on Tuesday evening last,
when the whole audience rose and remained
standing during the singing by the Company
and chorus of " God save the Queen." It may
not be without interest for you to know that had
not his numerous engagements prevented him
from opening the Melbourne Exhibition, we
might perhaps Lave had the pleasure of welcom
ing in this city the heir to the Throne of Great
Britain. I was aware that the Prince of Walea
wished to visit these Islands, and last year I
received a message from him that he would give
me warning if he was able to pass this way.
We are, it must be confessed, rather unfortunate
but for the troubles on our South African
frontier, we shoifld have seen the Detached
Squadron here in June or July. We may, I
think, still hope to see these ships bearing to
our shores the two youthful sons of the Prince
of Wales, later in the year, but on this head I
cannot say more at present. I am sure it would
afford both pride and pleasure to all of you to
see five fine ships under the Cross of St. George
under full canvas, entering our harbor. I now
call on you, my fellow-countrymen, to drink
with me the health of Her Most Gracious Ma
jesty Queen Victoria." The toast was drank
with enthusiasm. The Royal Hawaiian Band
played God Save the Queen, and all present
joined in the loyal strain. There was only one
other toast on the programme of the evening
the health of Her Royal Highness the Princess
Regent. Its announcement was received with a
burst of applause, in response to which the
Band struck up " Hawaii Ponoi,'' interrupting
the remarks of the Chairman. The order of
things was therefore reversed; the toast was
drank whilst this Hawaiian National Anthem
was being played, and at its close Major Wode
house continued, " I will now resume the re
marks I was about to make. I believe Her
Highness is animated bv a sincere desire to
maintain the most friendly relations with the
country to which we belong, and is also anima
ted by a desire for the welfare of all who become
citizens of her country, and to promote by
every means in her powtr the prosperity of the
The remainder of the evening was pleasantly
passed, and numerous songs were sung nation
al, sentimental, or comic, according to the
humor of those who thus contributed to the
evening s entertaiument. About half-p.'ist
eleven the Chairman called upon all present to
join in singing "Aunt i,ang Svne, and r.he
proceedings were brought to a close. Eighty
five gentlemen sat dow to this entertainment.

Mr. Editor: I have perused your valuable
paper to-day, and find many things of interest
in it. Pinafore is eulogised iu very high terms,
through the columns of your own
also through the l'rtsu, and cer-
I tainly, through the idea conveyed to us by re
porters, that performance must have been
rendered " par excellence." Again, notes from
Hawaii, Maui and Kauai are good, and the pros
pect certainly must be gratifying to the agencies
here, schools are opened again, the suiall-pox
epidemic is fast subsiding, and matters generally
are assuming features which I should think,
please the most fastidious of your many readers
and subscribers. But how about Polua ? I see
through your paper he was hung yesterday.
Well, it is now to be hoped that some of the be
loved, who clamored for the " Old Testament"
doctrine; " An eye for an eye;" " a tooth for a
tooth;" aud "alife for a life," are satisfied. On
the same day Polua was strangled in the jail
yard, another native lost his life by the falling
of Father Larkin's cheap labor school-house.
Thus you see two more of the bone and sinew
of the country which belongs to them are gone,
although they were no better than "Aliens," as
far as its laws are concerned, lhese things in
connection with the small-pox have caused more
than one good citizen to ask how long can these
people last. If the small-pox breaks out on
Hawaii and Maui, and assumes like proportions
to what it did on Oahu, how many of his own
people will be able to welcome the return of our
King to his dominions. And by the way, can
you answer a pertinent question, I heard asked
on the street yesterday ? Would Polua have
been hung, if his Majesty had been home ?
Verily, I think not; and if his gracious Majesty
had been here, Polua would still have been
in the land of the living, fitter for some other
purpose than banging. By the way.Mr. Editor,
a petition was sent into circulation, in behalf of
Polua, and which caused great consternation in
certain directions. This petition was signed by
a larse number of our citizens, and was then
presented to Her Royal Highness, the Princess
Regent. I he "bomb-shell" caused a great
commotion in the camp. The thing was taken
before the Privy Council, even the Supreme
Judges were called on to take Tyart on this
momentous occasion. A large number of peo
ple who had signed the petition were summoned
before this "Star Chamber Tribunal," to say
why they had asked for the further lease of a
human being's life, who I am sorry to say
as a majority, " went back on their word," and
like a lot of school boys, said " I am sorry, but
I wont do it any more." Now sir, " why is this
thus." In the absence of his Majesty have we
not a Regent, and could she not settle the ques
tion of the life or death of one of her own
subjects. "Oh tempora, Oh mores." Again,
people on the streets are asking about the post
mortem on Polua. One said he had heart
disease. Many said he had not. It was agreed
and understood there should be a post mortem
examination. Dr. Hoffman even went so far,
as to inform and invite the different medical
men in the city to attend. This would have
very easily settled a vexed question, and one in
which the one against the many is now believed
to be in the right. Why was this examination
denied at the eleventh hour ? Surely this must
be a "wheel within a wheel.'' Now sir, these
are only questions asked in the street. No
offense is meant, but "if this be treason make
the most of it." Polua is gone, aud as you ob-

served his ghost, like Banquo," will iLfVe on
many occasions to worry those who would not
say spare him.
And now altering the subject, please let tne
6ay a few words about dogs. To people living in
Honolulu, I think a special prayer should be
allowed, something in this wise: From dogs
that fight, and growl all night. " Good Lord
deliver us." I think if a bounty of 2 cents per
tail was paid for the extermination of dogs in
Honolulu, an enterprising man might in the
course of two or three weeks make a very good
living. Again, according to a neat calculation,
I find that if all the dogs in his Majesty's King
dom were killed and made into Bologna sausa
ges, the result would be that Honolulu could
stand a siege for thirty-five years (as far as food
is concerned). Last night I slept, and lo I had
a dream. I saw in my dream, a shape of a
mighty dog, and before him spread a beautiful
kingdom of many islands. And as with ex
ceeding fear I watched this mighty dog; he
he opened his mouth, and without any ap
parent effort, he swallowed this kingdom of
many islands. And lo this monster had the
power of uttering a strange language, and as he
stopped for a moment to digest this sweet morsel
of a kingdom, I heard him utter the strange
words, "Uncle Sam, and annexation." Then
as he took his swift way through the air in the
direction of Canada; I heard him mutter the
strange words, "Monroe Doctrine," and ex
ceeding great was my perplexity. Then I called
unto me Daniel, anil said unto him, "Oh, Dan,
explain unto me my dream." And Dan opened
his mouth aud said unto me: "Oh ! you sardine,
can't you read the writing on the wall?" And I
Huy.'Miny verily. Then said Dan unto me: "The
dog was the United States, and the beautiful
kingdom of many islands, the Hawaiian King
dom, and now, oh Rardine ! any fool should
know what the cabalistic words Monroe Doc
trine' and 'Canada' meant." And lo! Dan de
parted leaving me greatly wondering at his wis
dom. And then I awoke from my sleep and
there was a hunury kanaka canine under each
window, and a brigade of them in the yard.
They were singing ! a chorus which may have
been called very fine bv doe-fanciers, but I be
"dog-goued" if I appreciated any such "dog
gerel" by the dogs, so I soon dogged their foot
steps out of the yard. But seriously, Mr.
Editor, there are, 1 think more dogs in Hono
lulu (and they are starved worthless curs too),
than any other city of its like proportions on
earth. They are of no use to anybody, six out
of seven pay no tax, and I only hope tho doe
slayers may soon come along and exterminate
them. "Ky Yi". Bow wow. Yours truly.

Every effort, however, lontr continued or well

The life of a nation, when the majority desire to

Azores never return to the place of their birth,
they will become Hawaiians, not supplanting

or as the United States are being filled at the
present day by hosts of people from the conti

Does anybody believe that the settlement of
Great Britain by those hordes of men was not
the means of making her what she now is ? or
that the crowds of people now finding a home in
the United States will supplant the citizens of
that favored land ? No, the next generation of
those people will be as truly American as the
descendants of other citizens, and will help to
strengthen the country instead of being
an element of weakness. Aud so should it be

if the life of the nation is not bartered away by
those whose duty it is to preserve and transmit
it sound and strong to a succeeding generation.
The infusion of new blood, if the operation is
honestly and skilfully performed, must invigo

of civilized men and women will tend to per
petuate the Hawaiian people and Government
instead of supplanting them. The Hawaiian

7o the ftlitor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser:
Sir: Tbe (Jazetle believe in inquests in eases of
death attended by suspicious circamstaoet, or from
preventable causes, as in the the case of the boj
killed by tbe fall of Father Larkin's school-house.
Tbe principle is oue in which, wi b a great many
otbets, I too, believe ; and tbe sbamefal neglect of
autopsies and inquests ia suspicious cases of death
has been so apparent in many cases as to make any
special comment superfluous.
It has simply amounted to this ; that tho authori
ties have done as tbey pleased, regardless of tba
opinions of others in these matters. But. row that
an era bos been ushered ia when preventable deaths
are to be accounted for by those whose neglect f
precautionary measui ta has been responsible there
for, let us bope that a spirit of fairness and fear
lesnees will prevail, and render to all culprits their
just uues, wnemer mey re priests or laymen, patri
cians or plebeians.
Hundreds of men, women and cbildreo through
the agency of a fell disease (for tbe introduction
and extension of which some person or persons are
responsible) are rotting in the Bands of Kahakaaa
lana and yet not an inquest! But may we not
trust that tbe awakened spirit which has looked
beyond the mere proximate cause of death in one
oase, may we do so ia the other f Shall we can we
discriminate in favor of those ; by whose willful
neglect and criminal carelesneaa ; hundreds have
been sent to tbe grave ; and then Indict those by
whose possible neglect, a single soul baa been ushered
