thus become a fellow student with the young
Hawaiian James Booth.

lows : " The Kilauea Sugar Company have about
50 tons of No. 1 sugar at Kahili landing, ready
for shipment, but the steamer James Makce has
not put in an appearance to receive it. Pro
bably Captain Rates considers the weathe r too
boisterous. So far, this month, v e have had
some heavy squalls, attended with rain, from
the N.E. The locomotive continues to elo better
work day by day a fact that is mainly tlue to
the indefatigable exertions of Mr. Sproule, civil

Report of His Excellency W. N. Armtrong,
II. m. minister of Immigration.
To the FAitor of tint Pacific Commercial Advenrsfr.
Sib: It may be stated.as a fact that in
constitutionally governed countries, the
community is divided into two parties of
very unequal numbers. On the one hand
are the few politicians who rule,and seek to
direct the course of futuro events, on the
other the great majority of the jeople who
quietly attend to their private afTuirs trust
ing to the good faitli of the governing few
that in every contingency the best possible
course sliall'be pursued to promote the pub
lic welfare. It follows that the rulers arc
bound by moral considerations, to work for
the common ;j-od according to their public
professions, without any selfish or other sin
ister motive or hidden design.
When, under such government, on any
subject of importance, accurate information
is required, a commission to collect and re
port upon the facts and evidence touching it
is usually appointed; but then this commis
sion, to be of any real use and if intended to
have any weight, must be strictly impar
tial ; and, to be so, should be composed of
an equal number of members of opposite
parties, and in other countries such is the
method employ eel Against such a course
there can not be a werd of cavil. How is it
here? This commission appointed to in
vestigate and report upon a matter vitally
affecting the fortunes of many individuals
and the national life or tlcatii, has been con
fided to one man that person a partisan of
those in power in fact one of themselves.
Who places any faitli in tho venlict of a
packed jury? Who, outside the party it is
intended to strengthen, will attach any val
ua or have any faith in this report? It
stands a monument of partial action, and

judicial act, the result of a pat ieut and thor
ough investigation of all side's of the ques
tion and all evidence obtainable, I can
come to no other conclusion than this, that
it is a something worse than a failure, and
the sooner it is consigned to tho flames the

Hawaiian Poetic reeling.
The Hawaiian mind is capable of line po
etic expression ; and as an illustration, wo
f resent an account of the reception of Queen
)owager Kmma on Maui, and of a propos
ed preparation for the reception of His Maj
esty the King, which we translate from the
KU lc I'oakolu :
KAbKI.KONAI.AXI (Qt'KUN KMMA).
My mind has be-cn greatly astonished, I
have lived since the days of Kamehameha
IV., and I can say truthfully, I have never
witnesse-d such a display of honest love, and
affection for an Alii, as that shown by the
ioople of the four waters (W'aikapu, Wal
luku, Waiehu, and Waihec), and IvistMaul
on the occasion of the reception of Kalelo
onalani. The stamp of loyalty shone on
the countenance of everybody; iiot only ila
waiians, but foreigne rs also; and all enjoy
ed the occasion with the feeling of good-fol-lowship.
The Malu Ke Kuaiwa, the protect
ing cloud of Wailuku never before witness
ed such a sight if festivity. The amount of
llookupus (oflerings) canned he measured.
The steam of the engines shouted a chal
lenge to the winds, and all voices were full
of gladness. Tho plains of Kamaomao wero
lit up by electric light from the million
aire's .Sugar Mill. There were perform
ances, and music playing. And the people
fchouted their delight as they rejoiced.
Katmlua. (Kino Kai.akaua).
And now, the Four Waters, and tho hills
of Hast Maui are awake and on the alert,
and great preparations are on the move, to
greet with a grand loyal and patriotio wel
come, our King Kalakaua, whenever he
comes to us. Then, I feel t hut the rejoic
ings and gladness will reach the heavens,
will meet the eye of tho Sun, will kiss the
Queen Moon of the night, ami redoice to
gether with the stars. Hurray! Hurrah!! '
