NOTES OF THE WEEK.
C2r Tin- Cousins Sucif ty will meet this eveu
i:;o; at tho- re.-i.U-nce of Dr. O. S. Curuiuiugs.
AnotLtrr iarty of ojiium smukers were
surjiriL-il iy the jiulico dnriii the week anJ
brought b-fure the magistrate. One of them Ah
Sum was coinirtoil and fiiicj $o0. The other
luau got off.
'."if The or.liiiant-e.s of Laptism auil the Lord's
Sujititr vill le ailuiinistered at Fort street
Chtirih ou Stirnlay luoruiug, aud ten persons are
t'i he received to membership. In the evening
Mr. Cruzan will preac h a sermon to business
Mr. D. W. Clark has returned from the
Coast, and has brought with him a very fine as
Htirtment of watt hi-s, clocks, and jewelry, which
h lias opened ont in it part of the store occn
pied by Mr. Win. Johnson, ou Fort Street. Par
ticulars of his varied stock will be given shortly
in our advertising columns.
A correspondent at Kapaa, Kauai, writes
that " the Halli lie wire ropeway which has been
in course of construction on Kealia Plantation,
was finished last week aud is a compU-te success.
It keeps tiie mill well supplied with a steady
stream of cane and is giving greater satisfac
tion'every day." Col. Spauldiug is thsroughly
pleased with the success of this tramway, aud is
quite euthusistie on the subject of its merits.
jf The old (lovernment premises ou Fort St.
opposite the Enterprise planing Mill, have just
been leased by Mr. Phillip Stein, as a carriage
factory. The buildings are being enlarged and
.paired and business will be commenced as
?9oti as Mr. Stein's stock of materials, etc., are
tii. haud from the Coast. Mr. Stein's reputation
anil personal energy will uo doubt secure for
him success in his new enterprise.
JtaJ At St. Andrew's Cathedral to-morrow,
the Rev. A. Macintosh's course of Sunday even
ing lectures on the Auglicau Prayer Book will
be continued, "The History of the Prayer Book"
being the subject. The Rev. T. Blackburn, B.
A., intends proceeding with the course on
" Christianitj' and Modern Science," by lectur
ing next Wednesday evening on "Inaccuracies
in the Bible." The Rev. T. Blackburn will be
the preacher to-morrow morning also.
There will bo a match game of baseball
this afternoon on tho old drill ground between
the "Infants" and the Honolulu Base Ball Club.
The Club's team will be captained by Mr. Harry
Whitney and their opponents by Mr. J. Hay
Wod.-honse, junior. Both teams are strong and
it is likely that there will be a really good match.
This is the only game that has been arranged for
this afternoon to be played on this gronu-1.
- rZf The reserve at Makiki, which has been
appropriated for the use of the Honolulu Athletic
Association, has been cleared of weeds and lev
elled where uneven, n body of prisoners having
been at work upon it u'.l the week. A supply of
water is being laid on to the ground and it is
expected that the feuce will be completed beforo
next Saturday. Until the work of improvement
is completed and the weather is more settled,
there will be no lawn tennis games organized on
I if Mr. Dodd's latest idea is tho building of
an Omnibus on the American plau, which will
soon make its appearance in our thoroughfares.
This Bus is to be a fine piece of workmanship
throughout, comfortably seating thirty adults,
and will uo doubt le well patronized. Spnces
have been arranged for business advertisements,
and the ornamental frames with glass covering
will set the advertisements off to great advantage.
Selections for spaces can now be seen at the of
fice of I. E. Wiseman, who is managing this de
partment. f"2 The tine and very completely stocked
drug store of Hollistcr it Co., on Nunanti
street, is one of the notable business successes
of this city. We all remember the plain cigar
and soda water stand of a few years. How it
has grown to the present wll appointed estab
lishment, fitted for the needs of u city ; with
everv line of the drug business, wholesale and
retail fully represented, under the superintend
ence of Mr. Smith, whose experience and know
ledge, qualify him as a trust worth preparer and
dispenser of drugs. Hollistcr t Co. are emi
nently deserving of the liberal patronage they
j-jv Ah Yung alias Tuck Sum, who imported
the goods per P. M. S. S. Australia which were
seized bv Port-Surveyor Morrill, on account of
opium King found among them, pleaded guilty
to the charge of smuggling opiuini, r.ud was
sentenced to a flue of $3im) and to two months'
u:lrd labor. Judge Bickerton in passing sen-
tenee saia mat ne nan taheu into consideration
the plea of guilty and the fact that the coufisca-
ti"U ot tne opium uno 01 tue parcel 01 goons in.
. ... l
which it was included, involved a loss of $20u0
t. the owner or owners. An appeal to the
Supreme Court was noted by Mr. Davidson, who
was counsel for the defendant.
The first of aperies of unique entertain
ments entitled " Evenings iu Foreign Lauds,'
will be giveu in Fort Street Church next Wednes
day evening. The country visited will be Japan.
The excellent choir of the Church will furnish
some choice music, and there will be the follow
ing literary exercises: 1. lire minutes with
the m.p of Japan, an address by Mrs. Cruzan
2. A tweuty minutes lecture on the Oovernment
S.-hools. home and social life aud customs of
Japan, bv Professor Scott. 3. Eight miuntt 9
paper on the old Religious of Japan, by Mrs. J
M. Whitney. 4. Eight minutes addresss on
Christianity in Japan, by Judge McCully. It is
the intention to go around the world, visiting
all the prominent countries, in this series of eu
tertainuients. This will give those who desire
to travel an opportunity to gratify that desire
without expense or sea-sickness. There will be
no charge for admission, aud fn order aceommo

;rsr Hr. Do.l 1 hs an advertisement iu this
issue of the Advei:tiskr on the subject of street
sprinklirg to which our storekeepers will do
well to give their attention. Experience of one
or two windy Jays during the past week ought
to cu-sae anyone, who Las good3 to be spoiled and
customers to be ktpt away from him by the state
of the streets in dusty weather, or eyes of his
own with which t j suffer when he goes up the
street, to reflect before he declines to contribute
to the watering the streets. Unless the contribu
tion for this purpose is general, the subscriptions
will not meet the expense, and at the same time
those otherwise willing to contribute will cease
to do so ou the ground that they will not pay for
their share and let others who get equal benefit,

will te held on Monday, March Cth. at H p.ni ,
at th-Hawaiian Hotel, to take into consideration:
1.- The position in which the Club is placed
through the arrangements recently made by His
Excellency the Minister of the Interior, to give
exclusive rights to the ground hitherto used by
the Club, to the Honolulu Athletic Association.
The relations which should exist between
tho Club and the Athletic Association. 3. The
position and prospects of the Club generally. A
full attendance is particularly requested. It is
piite likely that H. B. M. S. Triumph may
make her appearance in these waters shortly, in
which case it is to be hoped that the club will be
ible to put a good team iu the field for a match
with their naval friends.
I'ijf On the iiioriiin; of Wednesday last, a na
tive woman named Olukea the wife of Makole,
residing nt Mr. J. H. Boyd's place at Kailua,
Koolau, attempted to commit suicide with a
hatchet. She inflicted two wounds on the left
side of her head. Her husband was ont of tho
house at tho time, and she took the opportunity
to fasten the door. Makole aud others return
ing together, heard 11 noise iu the house, and
finding the door locked, broke it in, and caught
her in the act. She told them she did not want
to live 11113- longer. Besides the hatchet, there
were a hammer and some big stones lying on the
floor beside her. Th- last account to hand, is
that she is progressing favorably towards recovery
from the effect of her self-inflicted injuries.
A. B. Howe was charged before Judge
Bickerton, ou Tuesday last, with procuring and
giving liquor to native Hawaiians. Kekaha and
Joe Brown gave evidence that they went to
Rowe's shop last Saturday, and that he gave Joe
two bottles of gin, for which the latter paid him
$2. The police stopped Joe at the corner of
Nuuanu and King streets, and discovered the gin
in his possession. Defendant denied the charge,
and said that all that passed when the men were
at his shop was that Kekaha wanted some work
done and they agreed upon a price. Lokai and
Kahinu gave evidence that they were at Rowe's
shop, aud saw Kekaha and Joe there, but saw
110 liquor pass to the latter. This contradictory
evidence secured for Rowe an acquittal, but he
but h- is to be on his trial again to-day for sell
ing without a license.
8lf The good people of Wailuku suffered ty
great disappointment through the non-arrival of
His Majesty on Wednesday week last. They had
made extensive and right loyal preparations for
the reception. Arches were erected, luaus and a
ball organized, and a procession to meet the King;
at Maalaea Bay. There was no opportunity for
them to receive auy warning, and about five;
hundred went in the procession and returned
ilisappointed. The reception aud ball were to
have been in the Union School house at Wailu
ku, and were under the management of a commit
tee consisting of Messrs. J. D. Spreckels, W. H.
Corn well, W. H. Bailey, J. K. Richardson, J.
Haole, W. K. Makakoa, J. W. Girvin aud Dr.
Enders. The programme was to be repeated
this week but his Majesty's determination to
leave hero by the Iwalaui instead of the Likelike
would render a change in the arrangements ne
cessary. gr By reference to the programme publish!
in another colum, it will be seen that our musi
cal public are to have a rare treat at the concert
to be given next Thursday eveuiug, at Fort St
Church. A female Quartette is a novelty, and
with such voices as those of Mrs. Cruzan, Mitts
Parke, Miss Rhodes and Mrs. Brown will un
doubtedly be a pleasant innovation. The strong,
superb soprano of Mrs. Paty, and the rich, clear
sympathetic voice of Mrs. Hauaford are alwaj's
a delight. Mrs. E. P. A-lims is to give two of
her inimitable readings. The names of gentle
men ou tho programme area guarantee that their
parts will also be a feast of good things.
The admission is put at the low price of one dol
lar, the proceeds to be used in the purchase of a
new instrument for the vestry of the Church.
Tickets are on salo at T. G. Thrum's, or may be
obtained at the door. At the close of the enter
tainment the ladies will furnish refreshments to
those who desire, in the vestry. Communicated.
ZjT" A fire was discovered about two o'clock
on Wednesday afternoon in the harness room at
the rear of the residence of Major Wodehouse in
Emma-street. An alarm was rung and the fire
men turned out with commendable promptitude,
but fortunately the fire was put out before their
arrival on the seene, aud before any serious mis
chief had been occasioned by it. An examina
tion of the premises disclosed the alarming fact
that this hre was the deliberate work of an in
cendiary. Kerosene had apparently been
poured on some hay which was lying in the
building in which the fire occured and the hay
had been subsequently ignited by a match passed
through a knot-hole in the wall of the room.
Between that wall and the fence which divides
the grounds of Major Wodehouse from the ad
joining property is a space about two feet wide
in which who ever w;-s engaged iu this mischief
could be concealed. Traces of his presence
were left in the form of unburn t matches which
had apparently failed to light when struck. Es
cape after the deed was done was easy enough
by climbing the fence refem d to and passing
through the grounds of the German Club or
some of the yards attached to native premises
iu Punchbowl-street. It may be conjectured
that the scamp, who ever he may have beeu. was
alarmed before he completed his work, as a bun
dle of papers saturated with kerosene was found
under the harness-room which did not appear to
have beem lighted, although evidently put there
for the purpose. A quantity of hay similarly
saturated was also found iu an old wardrobe
which was in the harness-room. Evidently the
rascal knew something atout the premises and
probably he had been there before to make his
preparations for the intended blaze. Why he
should have chosen an hour for putting a light
to the place when his mischief must necessarily
be promptly discovered, it is not easy to imagine.
Major Wodehouse is very much at a loss to
imagine who owed him such a spite as to lead
him to take so serious a revenge. The only
individual upon whom suspicion rests is a
Chinese boy who was some little time ago dis
missed from employment in the house, and who
is believed to have entertained a gmdge against
one of Major Wodehouse's sons.
?" At an adjourned meeting of the Young
Men's Christian Association, held on ThursJay
night, the By-I.tt s under the new Constitution
were con-i Jcrcd an.l adopted. A lengthy tlis
r us. ivii occurred as to ti.e bearing upon the stat
us of eld members of the association, of the pro
vision in tiie new l'ou-tir.:ti..:i. that only those
who are in ui-'-uibership with some Evangelical
Church shall Law thv right of voting at meet
ings of the association, and of holding otce. A
majority of those pr- s- ut held that this provis
ion only &pp!i. d to m-w .t-tubers, t ut no reso
lution ou th..- sul'j-ct was passed. It was resolved
to print the Charter, Constitution and By-laws
of the Association, with a list of all persons
who have ever been members, distinguishing the
names of those who Lave died, and those who
have ceased to be members, either through re
moval or otherwise, from those of the present
members t-f the association, by a mark. A commit
tee cousiating of Dr. Hyde and Mr. P. C. Jone-s
was appoiuted to assist the Secretary in compiling
this list. The next regular meeting of the Asso
ciation will be held on the evening of Thursday,
ICth inst. It is expected that the plans of the
proposed new building for the Association will
then be ready for consideration bv the members.
Cy The work of widening Queen-street is ap
proaching completion. The award of the re
ferees as to compensations payable for land
taken, etc., and as to increased value to property
in the street iu consequence of the widening, has
been rendered, and was on Tuesday filed in the
office of the Registrar of Conveyances in accord
ance with the statute. The amounts pa3-able
are $1,100 to the contractor for Mr. Campbell's
building for altering foundations, etc., $G50 to
Mr. Campbell for land, and $331 33 to the
estate of the late General Miller for laud.
Besides these amounts the cost of altering the
buildings occupied by Messrs. A. S. Cleghoru &
Co., and Theo. H. Davies has to be paid. The
contract price for that work was about $1,600.
The formation of the new portion of the street
and footpaths also falls on the Government. For
these expenditures the Government recoups
itself by collecting from the several owners of
property in the neighborhood of the improve
ment, the amounts by w hich (as the referees have
certified) their properties and holdings are
bettered in value by the change. These several
contributions amount to $3,013 35. Had the
matter been attended to a little more promptly,
the compensation to Mr. Lucas for the alterations
in Mr. Campbell's building might have been
avoided, and this levy upon property-holders
would then have more than covered the whole
cost ff the change. The awards to claimant, for
loss of ground are very moderate and each of
them has to paj- back a considerable sum for
betterment " which is valued at $1 per foot of
frontage to Queen-street. In Mr. Campbell's
case this amounts to SG40, so that he only re
ceives payment of the ignoble balance of $10.
The Fire Department have received frorOj
San Francisco, a number tif lithograph copie of
the plan of Honolulu, showing the new fire
wards. This map is taken from the records ol
the Government Survey, and was compiled for
the Fire Department by Mr. J. F. Brown. The?
various wards are distinguished by different
colors. Circles are drawu on the map, showing
the distances of various points in the town from
the Bell Tower one for every quarter of a mile
of radius. Copies of this map will be sold to
those who apply for them, and certainly no
business office iu town should be without one, as
besides the information it affords as to the boun
daries of the firewards, and the positions of
hydrants, cisterns and artesian wells, it contains
many details, especiallj' as to the harbor and its
immediate shores, which are not in any other
published map, and it is the first map that has
been compiled which shows the whole of the
city from Palama to Puuahou and up the valley
as far as the Mausoleum. According to the
division now adopted, there are thirteen fire
wards. No. 1 lies altogether mauka of School
street. No. 2 is bounded by Liliha-street,
School-street, Fort-street and Beretauia-street,
and by the lino of Beretauia-street prolongeel
across Nuuanu Stream till it meets the Ewa
road at the foot of Liliha-street. No. 3 lies
between No. 2 and King-street, and has Fort
street for its south-east boundary. No. 4. lies
makai of King-street, on the Ewa side of Fort
street, and is otherwise bounded by the harbor.
It includes a majority of the business pre
mises of the town. No. 5 lies from King
street to the Esplanade, bounded on one side by
Fort-stree t, and on the other by Richard-street,
also by the water. No. G is bounded by Fort-st.,
King-street, Richard-street, and Beretania-street,
and includes the Bell Tower, the Hotel, ifcc.
No. 7 lies mauka of Beretauia-street, between
Fort, Miller, and Punchbowl streets, being
bounded at the rear by Sehool-ftreet. No. 8 in
cludes the Palace and Government Buildings ;
its boundaries arc Richard-street, Beretania
street, and Miller-street on one side ; Punchbowl-street
on the other, and the harbor. No. 9
extends eastwards of Punchbowl-stroet, as far as
Victoria-street, sweeping round from Punchbowl
hill to the sea. No. 10 is stiil further out, and
is bounded by Victoria-street, the slope of
Punchbowl, the water-course that runs in front
of the Lunalilo Home, Piikoi-stre t, and a line
which will take iu any habitations that are on

serious explosion occurred on board that vessel,
when ofi'Coquimbo, on the coast of Chile, on Tues

The Lawyers and the Doctors, haw been
attracting a little attention of late. The
Bar has been putting ou a new hine, and

the situation, with the precision of a Cap

"Say, youngster, what are you doing
here on this corner, buzzing around the
web of the Golden Spider?"
"Well, L'ncle Jimmy, I wish I could
nisike the Golden Spider believe I was a
good fat tly, and worth taking into his par
lor. I am quite well disposed to be taken
in by a Bank; however, it is probable that
a Bank is likely to feel taken in, when it
gets hold of a newspaper man, as it may
get more bullying than bullion from him.
But Uncle Jimmy, I was just now relleeting
and moralizing 011 the condition at this
time in Honolulu of the two great profes
sions, that are ever ready to hill aud pill us,
The Bar is putting on a new gloss, set; the
broad plate, and the golden signs around
us; whereas each medico is pounding
another in his mortar."
"This happens natural enough, Don. The

couples. Men who live upon other men's
quarrels must keep peace among them
selves. They know there is profit in bioth
erly union, as David of old recommended.
with a promise of a blessing. You remem
ber the psalm, Don, don't you, which you
repeated many a time at Sunday School."
"O, yes, Uncle Jimmy. This is what
David said: 'Behold how good it is for law
yers to pull together. Then fees flow like
oil upon the beard.' "
"Don't attempt to parody Scripture,
young man. lho words ol JJavid are line
"Behold how good, and how pleasant it
is for brethren to dweil together in unity !"
"Yes, Uncle Jimmy, and David'son ia
profiting thereby. Lo and behold lie shineth
forth in a new front, and npiendid plate
glass. And look upon him on the other
side, who is a Castle buihler; doth he not
put forth a resplendent shinglo of crystal,
upon which are inscribed golden characters
of the Land of Slnim, inviting the wayfar
ing Heathen Chinee to walk in, and be
taken in? And regard Bickerton, who
knows no bickering tone; as he discourses
blandly on Bench, or at Bar; he has his
reward, in a nobby new office, that inspires
a client with a feeling that it is a privilege
to drop in theieand pay a fee. And thus
the law is looking up new, and prominent
quarters everywhere, whilst the medicos
take back offices, and quarrel over the
bodies of the sick."
" Well, Don, Physic is not gregarious like
law; but incliued to be solitary; and like a
certain beast of prey, wants to watch and
snarl alone over a carcase. The Law has
its statutes, and its clearly recorded prece
dents; but Physic has the illimitable realm
of experiment. A lot of opposing lawyers
in a suit will look up for each other the
precedent; or lend each other the necessary
law. But a lot of medicos on a case de
nounce each others' physic."
" That's so, Uncle Jimmy. Dr. Roperto
says that Dr. Piko is rotting the people's
bones with tons of potash; and Dr. Piko
may retort, that Dr. Itoperto has drenched
the laud with bushels of autibilious pills.
Now, ain't it lucky, Uncle Jimmy, that the
Doctors don't harmonize; as the combined
forces of potash and purge would utterly
" Lucky indeed, Don, that Doctorsshould
disagree, when their only object is to dose
and charge; but it would be more lucky tr
fortunate, that men whose profession and
duty is to be healers of men, should be
united and harmonious before men. If any
brethren should dwell in unity together,
surely they should be the medical brethren,
whose nrouer work is to save the lives of
fellow beitrgs. Kvery true worker iusuch
a cause should gladly accept helpers; and
every one qualified to work iu such a cause,
should be ready to help any one who had
already taken a lead in such work."
" Ah, Uncle Jimmy, you are inclined to
believe in a medical millenium. But a
doctor regards a practise, or a hospital in
hand, like a miner does a claim, which he
don't want any other doctor to jump. It is
not a question with him of how many lives
there may be saved in his institution, or
round of practise; but how much money
there is in it."
" But hold on, Don, you must make some
"Of course, Uncle Jimmy, there are ex
ceptions, we have them before us. We see
the difference between a doctor with big
emoluments who drives patients away from
an institution; and a doctor with a bare liv
ing who crowds an institution with throngs
of anxious health seekers. One wants helj
to share the throng of patients; and the
other don't want help to share the emolu
ments. It's lives with one, and dollars
with the other."
"But how pleasant and blessed for them
and this little Kingdom, Don. if such men
dwelt and worked in unity together. The
blessing spoke by the Psalmist would come
to them. Their unity would indeed be

Then there never would be a suspicion

was at work it was curious to see tho alarm of
the spider. Every few minutes the door would
lift a little, and 1 would sec the hairy leg tif thai

down. After one of these retreats I inserted my
kliifu blade into the door and tried to lift it.
Something was holding it back on the other Hide,
evidently, us it did not lift up with the easo with
which I had seen it under tne uiiiiIiIa handling
of the owner. Bending down and lifting the
door ut the same time, I saw the cause. The
spider was holding the door down. Its maudi
bles were fastened into the silken lining, while
with its feet it was bracing back and holding on
with all its strength, mid only when I hud lifted
it almost out did it let go and retreat to the lower
part of the well, where it coiled up it logn and
pretended to be (lead.
" How do they build the traps.'
"Justus a man would build a well. After
making their selection of a locality, they com
mence taking out hits of earth with their mouths,
and pushing them away with their legs. An
soon as they gut below tho surface a shoring-np
process is begun. Silk is spun and attached to
the wall by some secretion. Iho door is n pro
longation of this silken wall ; so, as the spider
works down, caving in in prevented in this way,
and finally the outer side of tho door, which i
naturally bright, is covered with soil, and hit of
moss are placed en it. There aro u number of
different kinds of trapdoor spider in this country
and Europe, sonic having two or three traps lu
the different parts of the well, the spider re
treating from one to another us danger presses..
" Here s a spider, lm said handing down one
of a number of glass jars covered with fine gauze,
"that builds a web tunnel utter the general shape
of the trap, but it is intinit !y more delicate, and
is always ut right angles with tho surface, and
contains 110 doors."
By holding the jar up against the sun, the
fairy-like tunnel can be traced, following around
the side of the jar, perfectly cylindrical, and, af
ter extending four or five inches, widening out
into a broad web, or platf inn, was held iu
place by myriads of single silvery and almost
microscopic cables extending from it to the up
per part of the glass.
"The web iu front," the naturalist continued,
"is to catch prey, and the whole edifice was built
in one night. By rights, the spiders would be
hibernating, or iu a winter sleep; but I am
kee ping them in a warm room to prevent thin,
and see what they w ill do, or what the effect will
be. There is u fly. Now wat' h thft spider."
The reporter held 11 larg" hand magnifying
glass over the Web,. and f he fly was n leased in
the jar, landing on tie: f ital platform. At tho
first hum the spider darlel out, with it yeK
flashing and its two fore legs in the air. The

another jar, "that se -uis to have 110 system
about building, but hangs its lines and cable ia
every direction, forming great sheet of web.
Some in my stable 1110 two feet long."
A fly was put in and a different method of ftU
tack became apparent. The spider waited until
the fly bad become entangled in tho web, ftliel
then rushed to the front. Silk was taken from
the spinnerets with the leg so quickly that it
was impossible to follow it- movements, and
buried about the unfortunates victim, nrd it
wings were in a few seconds bound down firmly
by tho silken bands. The spider then drew
nearer to end this tragedy, when another of the
same species, that had been a silent witness,
clambered down from a shelf of web above, and
evidently entered a counter claim. With fore
legs high in uir, eyes glistening like spark", of
fire, they moved toward each other, and like a
flash they struck with their fore feet, and, with
lightning-like movement h of the other legs, triod
to entangle each other. Curious beads of a yel
low liquid appea.vd on tle-jr legs, which at first
seemed to come f 1 out wounds on the limbs, bat
it was soon seen to come from the mouth. They
were actually foaming with rage, and the secre
tion was evidently used to render the cables of
silk sticky and adhesive. The result of this war
fare was that the legitimate owner of the fly soon
