Tiiekk are .some miU brought out by
Dr. ii'idger-i in hU Report on the Small-pox
Epidemic which ought to be generally
known. This end would have been gained
by the publication of the Itejort at the
time it was sent in, when the epidemic was
.-till a j rofi. incut object before the eyes of
the public. The le--on and wn ruings of
that time are only tni 'ikely to fall into ob
livion, and the next invasion of this dire
di-ease to find us just as unprepared for it
as we were at the beginning of 1SS1. Noth
ing is more likely to counteract the tend
ency to this neglect than the perusal of the
Report in question. It is searching am!
close iu its exitiou of the characteristics
of the late epidemic, and what it has to urge
upon the authorities and himhi the nation in
the wa3 of precaution for the future is not
011I3' sound in itself, but also clearly shown
to bo a strict deduction from the facts set
One thing which struck I)r Rodgers
painfully was the very heavy death rat)
amongst those who ought to have been in
the prime of life us compared with that
which prevailed among the young patients
of ages between 10 and 2u years. It was in
fact more than double. Well may he re
mark " this a fact whose explanation must
be sought for outside of any physical pecu
liarities dependent merely on care." The
habits and waj's of life of these people are
what he holds responsible for what he justly
calls an anomaly. "These facts" he adds
" aiTord food foi serious thought on the part
of those who are charged by the Govern
ment with the oversight of this people in
medical and sanitary matters."
On the possibility of overcoming the un
doubted prejudice which the natives cherish
against treatment by foreign doctors, Dr.
Rodgers gives us very satisfactory testi
mony. After stating that a considerable
proportion of his patients at the reef evi
dently came there prejudiced against the
treatment they were to receive and in
structed by native Kahunas and others not
to take his remedies, he adds, " but I found
a reasonable exhibition of kindness and
patience on my part generally sufficient to
overcome their prejudices." He also ex
presses himself emphatically as to the
amenability of his Hawaiian patients to
rule, and their appreciation of kindness
shown them. Had the eight hundred cases
of Small-pox been among foreigners in
stead of almost wholly among Hawaiians,
he is of opinion that "the difficulties of
administration would have beeu vastly in
creased." The suggestions with which Dr. Rodgers
closes his Rejiort are, in brief, as follows:
First, that we are always liable to an inva
sion of Small-pox here from San Francisco
because j arsons can contract the disease
there and yet land here a week before any
sign of its existence in the system can be
detected. Second that one of the lessons
of the late epidemic Is the danger from
indirect contagion. "It is a fact" he says
" beyond reasonable doubt that the seeds of
disease were introduced and extensively dis
seminated by deserters from the steamer
Quinta who did not have the disease them
selves, but had simply beeu in contact with
it." Third, another lesson, derivable from
the fortunate results which attended the inter-island
quarantine, (though it was "im-
jx rfect loth in plan and execution, "J is that
the disease can be held in check by proper
quarantine regulations, if they are effi
ciently enforced. Fourth, that a house to
house visitation should be instituted in a
town ieopled as this is when cases of Small
pox are known to have been introduced
into it. To tlie neglect of this, notwith
standing the ample warning given by cases
occurring iu December and January, he at
tributes the fact that the disease ever ac
quired the character of an epidemic last
year. "On the morning of the 4th of Feb
ruary," he tells us "not a single case was
known to exist," yet "within the next
sixty hours between thirty and forty cases
had been discovered, and we were forced to
the unwelcome conclusion that the disease
had already resumed epidemic proportions."
Fifth, that experience shows that the Gov
ernment of this country should insist on all
emigrant ships that come here being ac
companied by responsible medical officer of
American or European birth. He further
suggests that a sufficient penaltj should be
iniosetl on those who wilfully connive at
the introduction of small-pox or any other
contagious disease into the country. At
present such an offence, however inten
tional is only a violation of the regulations
of the Ioard of Health for which nothing
exceeding a fine of $100 can be inflicted.
Sixth, that the ''imperative necessity of
systematic public vaccination" has been
once more dearly put before our eyes. He
holds t 'at for "a large share of what this
community has suffered in person and iu
pocket" by the epidemic, the neglect of
this precaution (for which the laws of the
Kingdom so distinctly and imperatively
provide) is responsible. Tbe Report- con
cludes with the emphatic utterance on this
subject which we quoted in a former article.
The letter from a resident in the district
of Kau which appears in another column
sounds like an echo, in a shriller key, of
complaints we not iong ago published com
ing from another part of the island of
Hawaii. Serious complaints too come from
other islands, and some of the roads in
Oahu are also in a simply deplorable state,
ju-t for want of a little constant care.
Kauai has a happy reputation of being a
contrast to other parts of the Kingdom in
this respect. But from almost every other
part of the group there is but one cry
neglect ! neglect ! The proposals of the
Government for a reorganization of mat
ters, and for placing the care of all public
works under one competent civil engineer,
aided by a traveling assistant as inspector
will we hojie bring about a happy change.
Certainly things apiearlnmany quarters to
have got into such a state that any change
mist be for the better.
The matter in hand brings to the surface
one of the absurdities of the present law of
the Kingdom. The road tax cannot be
used for any purpose but that for which it is
paid, aud each taxation district is entitled
to have the amount raised within its bor
ders spent therein. In other civilised
countries the road tax is as a rule
raised and expended by some local autho
rity. We hare no such machinery here,
although there can be no doubt that the
time has fully come for its creation. The
money Is treated as ordinary revenue,
which it is not, aud subjected to the rules
which govern other appropriations which
lapse at the end of each biennial period. Is
it not a burlesque on administration that,
because the magic 31st March is past, this
money should be locked up in the safes of
the Treasury until, months afterwards, a
new Appropriation Bill is passed ? The
thing has no business in the Appropriation
Bill at all. The law is specific on the sub
ject. The money must be collected, aud
must be spent; and without repealing
existingenactments the Legislature cannot
elter its destination, otcontrol its expendi
ture. Why then should roads and streets
and bridges fall Into disrepair whilst plenty
of money is in hand, and ought to l e avail
able for their maintenance, just because two
j'ears have come to an end ? The thing is
absurd in the face of it, and ought not to be
tolerated for a moment by a people calling
Itself civilised, and boasting of its political
liberties and its popular Constitution.

Brazil has alway been a auar producing coun

Some large sized lumps of rock were shown in

H. W. Schmidt, Esq. They came originally from
the excavation made by the contractor for the

In the appeal case A. Dreier vs Kuaa and others,
a suit somewhat important to employers and la
borers, the Supreme Ccnrt in Banco has given
judgment against the plaintiff, sustaining the de
cision of the District Judge of Koloa. Mr. Dseier
had transferred his interest in the plantation to
Mr. Haneberg who re-transferred to the Koloa
Sugar Co. But in order to get over the difficulty
arising from the fact that labor contracts are not
transferable he retained one hundreth of the prop
erty. The point for the consideration of the Court
was whether the conditions of the contracts could
le evaded by snch a device. Mr. Dreier entered
into a contract to convey the interest thus retained
to the new owner for one dollar. In such a po
sition could he claim that work done on the planta
tion was in part work done for him and by his di
rection or that of his agent? The Court held the
opinion that he retained no substantial interest
in the work done or the profits arising on the
plantation," and, applying to the case the ancient
maxim "de minimi no curat lex" decided that
there was no privity of contract lietween these la
ltorer and the Koloa Sugar Company and that
therefore they could not be compelled to work on
We havo received the (Vicksburg) Planter'
Journal for May. This is a monthly periodical de
voted to the rural affairs of the Southern States of
the Union to sugar growing amongst the rest. It
also contains a department devoted to Literature,
Ilome affairs, the Fashions, and Sporting matters,
and evidently circulates as a family journal. Its
editor is Dr. J. E. Nagle. The remarks it contains
on the local sugar crops show how serious has
been the effect of the great floods of the past spring
in all directions in which they spread. The sugar
plantations seem to have been the greatest suf
ferers. Among other matters in this numlx?r wo
noto an account of what is looked upon as a pay
ing crop of amber cane in Minnesota. The pro
duce of an acre is estimated at S40 pounds of sugar
worth eight cents per )ound and eighty-live gal
lons of syrup worth CO cents per gallon ; total
$118.20. The cost of production is put down at
$50 per acre, provided the hauling of cane to the
mill does not exceed two miles.
Our London correspondent in a letter on t!u
subject of the immigrants per steamship Monarch
(which unfortunately did not reach us until after
that vessel's arrival) rajjies the following remarks:
This is by far the largest party of cmigrauts
which has ever left Portugal iu one vessel, aud tho
event has caused quite a sensation in the Azores,
not unmingled with some degree of alarm on the
part of the land owners at the departure of so
many able-bodied laborers, notwithstanding that
the Islands are much over-populated. It is to be
hoped that the class referred to, will not bring its
influence to bear on the Portuguese Government to
check the tide of emigration to Hawaii, which ap
pears now to have set in under the influence of
more liberal terms as to labor contracts, and the
attraction of a quick steam passage. This disposi
tion will certainly continue so long as no more un
favorable reports come to hand concerning the
treatment of the Portuguese at the Islands, and
the Home Government remains friendly, For the
former we must trust to the ultimate triumph of
truth over falsehood. The shipment of emigrants
per Monarch is the best of all yet forwarded.
The numbers who offered themselves enabled a
careful selection, and as la1orers and elements of
Imputation. Mr. Hoffnung docs not think it possi
ble on the whole, to select a lietter set of people
from any country. The Azoreans are hardy, in
dustrious and docile people, very economical and
law-abiding and will remain in the Islands, when
their cou tracts expire."
Tenth Anniversary of the Eoyal Hawaiian
Professor Berger and his Baud Boys celebra
ted on Wednesday afternoon the close of tbe
first ten years since the organization of this ex
tremely popular institution. The celebration
took the form of h Lnmpiet iu the Armory. His
Majesty the King was present and presided. As
guests there were present the Minister of the In
terior, the Minister of Finance, the Postniaster
Geueral, the Hawaiian Representative members
of the Assembly, His Majesty's Staff, the offi
cers of the Assembly, and a few others includ
ing some representatives of the m.tive and for
eign Press. The party assembled shortly after
four o'clock and devoted first attention to a sub
stantial repast, half pative, half foreign iu its
style to which decided justice was done. The
serious bu-iuess of the day being completed,
every one proceeded to enjoy himself. Toasts,
songs aud speeches followed in rapid succession,
mingled with some delightful music from a de
tachment of tbe Band, who abandoned for the
time their brazen instruments and took up in
stead "flute, sackbut, psaltery," and triangle.
The full Band came in at the last with some
marches and dance music, the last of which in
cited some of those present to indulge iu a little
display of posture dancing in Hawaiian fashion
aud others to the waltz and galop of European
First His Majesty gave the health of the As
sembly which was responded to by Hon. Mr.
Aholo. Then Professor Berger made a little
speech thanking His Majesty and the guests for
being present at this their " festival of ten
years.'' Born a Prussian, "je had learnt discir
pline in the land where more than all others
military service was expected from all. He had
served for ten years iu the army and gone
through three war, and adopted as his motto;
and taught it to Lis band the injunction
"stick to your service." He had found his
bandsmen as a rule " very good bo3"s." He
and Lis boys belonged to everybody, both na
tives and white men. Their greatest pleasure
was to have some foreign band pay a visit to the
place with whom they could vie, and so let it be
seen what natives can do. He concluded by
proposing the health of the King, which was
drunk with enthusiasm and followed by three
hearty chetrs. Professor Berger then called
upon Mr. Webb to say a few words about the
Baud on behalf of the press, which was respon
ded to with some well deserved eulogy. Mr. Ka
waiuni being called on to represer the ideas of
the native pres3 put forward Mr. John She-ldon
as his sulistitnte. These speeches were followed
at His Majesty's request by one from Hiram the
ITahunapu't of the Baud whose lively words, aud
smart i:nit;.tiou of Lis chief, evoked roars of
laughter. Mr. Darid Crowningburg spoke next,
nu.1 when he sat down. His Majesty proposed
Lis Lf alth, wLich toast was warmly received.
TLen followed iu rapid succession interspersed
with music, speeches by lieutenant I!aker, His
Ex. S. K. Kaai, Major Leleo (who invited all
present to a lunch at the Barracks on Satur
day next, Jnly 1st), Honorablea Kaunamano,
PuloLan, Keau, Kaulukou, Pilipo, Pahia and
Lilikalani. The band then played a set of qua
dril.e music followed by another piece called for
by Hon. J. M. Kapena and then by Hawaii Po
noi. But this signal for dispersing did not suit
the humor of the guests. At the summons of
His Majesty every one returned to Lis place to
drink the health of the Band and of Professor
Berger, "the composer of the Kamehameha
Hymn," which was done right heartily. More
music and some dancing followed, and it was
nearly 7 p. m., before the assembly finally broke
up, all present echoing the wish given expres
sion to by Professor Berger that they might
meet njain on a similar occasions when another
teu years had passed uway.
Friday, June 23, 18S2.
House met at the usual hour this a.m.
and after the pmyer and reading of minutes
had been concluded, the regular business
was proceeded with.
No petitions nor reports from Standing or
Hon. Mr. Rice read for the first time by
title, a bill to " regulate the use of intoxi
cating liquors." Ordered to print and to be
read a second time in its regular order.
Hon. Mr. Lahilahi introduced a resolu
tion that, whereas the amendment to Ar
ticle 5G of the Constitution, relating to the
increase in pay of members of the Assembly
had passed, that the Minister of Finance be
instructed to honor the drafts of the Secre
tary in order that the members receive
compensation iu accordance with the in
His Excellency the Premier, stated that
His Excellency the Attorney-General, who
was absent, had some remarks to make on
the subject, and desired that actiou on the
resolution be deferred until his presence In
Hon. Mr. Kaulukou gave notice of inten
tion to introduce a bill to amend Section 3,
4, 5, 0, and 7 of Chapter IX of the Penal
Code so that the English and Hawaiian
versions would correspond
His Excellency the Attorney-Geiieral ex
pressed his opinion on the resolution intro
duced by Hon. Mr. Lahilahi, aud said that
he understood the resolution to be to in
struct the Miuisiter of Finance to honor the
drafts of the Secretary for increased pay of
the Representatives of the Assembly. Set
ting aside any other question, it was clear
to his mind that according to the Constitu
tion, any increase or decrease in the pay of
the Members shall not take elTect during
the session of the Assembly in which it was
passed, and he was not at all in doubt on
that point. Article 56 of tbe Constitution
clearly says that "No increase of compen
sation shall take effect during the year in
which it shall have been made." Another
point which he judged was more serieus
still was that Article 80 of the Constitution
provides that "Any proposed amendment
or amendments shall be entered on the
journal, with the yeas and nays taken
thereon." He had searched the journal but
was unable to find that the law had been
complied with. He advised the Assembly
to postpone, the billl increasing the pay of
the Representatives being bad, for even
supposing all the preliminaries were correct
it could not go into effect this Session.
Hon. Mr. Nawahi spoke in favor of the
passage of the resolution, disclaiming all
mercenary motives, but judging that the
Representatives were rightfully entitled to
the increased compensation.
His Excellency the Attorney-General,
again rose and said the members well knew
that the law increasing the compensation
to $500 was passed at the present Session,
and he wondered if any member thought as
a fact that the law was passed last Session.
The reading of tbe amendment to the Con
stitution discloses the fact that it bears His
Majesty's signature of approval under a
date prior to its introduction for considera
tion by the Assembly, that in itself was a
mistake and an error, and although he was
not responsible nor did he suppose that any
member of the Assembly was responsible,
it was a mistake nevertheless. But allow
ing that everything in connection with the
amendment was perfect, the law increasing
the pay of members could not take effect
until next year.
Hon. Mr. Aholo said that he would like
to have the increased compensation if he
could obtain it according to law. Article 56
of the Constitution says that "compensa
tion to be ascertained by law," not by Con
stitution, if by Constitution, he would say
that the members were clearly entitled to
the increased compensation now. Accord
ing to the provisions of the Constitution
members are not entitled, as the law now
passed was only introduced into the As
sembly this Session.
Hon. Mr. Nawahi, Keau, and Kaunama
no, spoke in favor of the passage of the re
solution, and lion. Mr. Kalua against.
On motion the Ayes and Nays were taken
on the passage of the resolution with the
Ayes: P.P. Kanoa, Keau, Lilikalani, La
hilahi, Pahia, Mahoe, Kaluhi, Nakookoo,

hane, Rice, Palohau, Kaukau, 26.
Hon. Mr. Keau introduced a resolution
that His Majesty the King be informed that
the Assembly was ready to be prorogued.
Some little excitement was caused by the
resolution, especially as it was unanimous
ly seconded by the Representatives, but the
Ayes and Nays being taken, the motion
was lost by a vote of 25 to 16. The sixteen
were not identical with those who voted
aye in the previous division.

was indulged in, some feeling on the sub

(Fromttie Daily Pacific Commercial Advertiser. J
Wk regret to hear that the South Sea
Islanders, who came up by the Juiia, ship
ped as laborers on Kilauea plantation, re
fused yesterday to fulfil their contracts. On
Mr. Smithies, Secretary of the Board of Im
migration, representing to them that the
alternative was arrest and that the Magis
trate would have no choice but to send
them to prisou if they refused to carry out
their agreement, they expressed themselves
as quite willing to go to prisiou rather than
go to work on the island of Kauai. It is
understood that they have heard stories to
the effect that other South Sea Island la
borers have been ill-treated on that island,
and as they are unable to discriminate be
tween one plantation and another, they are
now refusing what is notoriously one of
the best services in the islands". These
stories appear to have been circulated freely
by some of the recently returned laborers,
although apparently they were not heard
by these people before they shipped. Cap
tain Tierney informs us that quite a num
ber of Islanders would have shipped and
come up with him had it not been for these
stories. We regret to have to record any
thing of this sort, for if any people who
have been employed by our planters have
bettered their condition more than others
j by thus taking service it is certainly
! these Islanders from the South and West.
Cruise of the Julia.
We are indebted to Captain C. II. Tierney for
the following account of his late voyage :
Sailed from Honolulu February 11, 18s2, for
Aurorai, King Mill's Group, with C5 passengers,
returned laborers, for that group. Had Hue
weather with pleasant trade winds to the Equa
tor, crossing it February 24, in longitude 177-38
W. Arrived at Aurorai February 2, lauding
one man, one woman, and three childreu. The
vessel was visited by man natives of the island,
who expressed joy at seeing the returned per
sons. Sailed from Aurorai for Peru Island
March 1. arriving there next day. When the
tide suited landed 57 people. Four people
voluntarily came on board, and engaged for ser
vice at Honolulu. Sailed from Peru at daylight
on March 5 for Onoatoa, arriving soon after,
and lauded one man. The next day six men
and two women engaged for labor service.
March 7, sailed for Drummoud's Island, arriv
ing there the same day. Next day landed one
woman, and took on board freight for the
Hawaiian Mission at Honolulu. Sailed on the
10th March for Nanonti, wind light, aud calms
with strong westerly current, but on written re
quest of Mr. Walkup, who stated that there was
no great need of touching at Nauouti and
Apamama, as the missionary work there was not
of much importance, we kept away for Apiang.
Arrived at Apiang March 29.jJLanded Mr. Walk
up, aud took Kev. J. H. Taylor and family on
board. Sailed for Tarawa on April 3, arriving
there the same day. One woman with two
children came on board for Honolulu. At
Maiana received on board ltev. Mr. Lono and
family. On the 8th sailed for Jaluit, arriving
tLere April 12, and recruited vessel. Sailed
again on the 17th for Arno, arriving there on
the 21st. Received two passengers. Sailed for
Majiroo, and on arriving found the missionary
located there was not prepared to return to
Honolulu, so we sailed for Strong's Island.
Arrived nt Strong's Island April 26 ; landed
freight and mails. Took Mrs. Snow aud Miss
Catchart, teachers of the A. B. F. M., on board,
and sailed for Honolulu May 4. Experienced
N.E. winds to the 13th May then light S.E.,
afterwards squally and calms. Then to -port S.
and S.E. winds and pleasant weather, arriving
iu port June 19, 4C days from Strong's Island.
Very rainy weather put quite a damper on the
Kohala Club Ball on the 11th. Only a few at
tended, but they made up in enjoyment what they
lacked in numbers.
A son of Mr. Chapin, manager of the Kohala
Plantation, was quite seriously injured on June 12,
by gunpowder explosion, tiie powder entering
his eyes and face. Dr. Thorn :i:.ni is in hopes that
both eyes may le saved vilir.m much injury,
though the marks of powder in his face will always
remain to some extent.
Plenty of rain for all during the week, and plant
ting will soon liegin in earnest.
Dr. Kiiubill and d -Lighter arrived by steamer,
aud Dr, Thompson acts proud about it. The
knowing ones say that he is to changj his name
during the next week.
Mr. Liken, of G. F. Wells and Co., is in town
making our pianos discourse sweeter music. We
are glad to see him, as he gives us more tone.
We expect to soon hear from our Dramatic
Association, it is the best institution m the place,
and should be well patronised.
Why don't the Spreckelsville Ministrels give us a
call o think they would get full houses.

drinking men to try the only power able to save
them Christianity. A few minutes whs then giv
en to reformed men those who had formerly been
addicted to excessive drinking to bear witness of
the power of Christ to save. Some remarkable
testimonials were given by several men who, a few
months ago were frequently intoxicated, but who
are now living sober lives. At the close of the first
meeting Mrs. Pierce sang a a solo, "What shall

Professor Smith was lecturing in Ossipee
on ' Natural Philosophy." and in the
course of his experiments lie introduced one
of Carrington's most powerful magnets,
with which he attracted, a block of iron
from a distance of two K et. " Can any of
you conceive a greater attractive power ?'
the lecturer then demanded. ' I ken,"
answered a voice from the audience. "Not
a natural terrestial object I opine ?"
'Yias, sir." Then the professor ch dlcnged
the man who had spoken to name the
thing. Then up rose old Seth Wilniet.
He was a genius in his way. and original
at that. Said he, " I ken give you the
facts, squire, and you ken judge for your
self. When I war a young man thar war
