Removal of Lepers
By order of the Board of Health tweuty-nir.e
lepers 1" males and 12fernalca were removed
on Saturday lat from the Iiranch Hospital at
Kakaako, pJacetl ou board the steamer Alotoin
and transferred to the Leper Settlement on
MoioKai. Ilie unfortunate sutierera em-,
barked in a ouiet and resicrned spirit; al
though their relative3 and friendi made a
freat lamentation on their departure, iir.
"itch accompanied the lepers removed.
Owinir to these removals and to the erection
of a new building, the Branch Hospital will
be prepare"! to receive lifty new patients
about to be collected. At the same time
we chronicle the sat! departure of incurables
to their final home, we are pleased to be
able to report the release last Monday, from
the hospital, of five leper cases, but pro
nounced either partially cured or in a non
contagious condition. These continue to
be treated outside, and will report them
selves frequently to the dispensary physi
cian. The idea of a railroad around the coast
line of Oahu has taken considerable hold
in the Government circles since the tour
of the Ministers around the island. They
have observed the easy practicability of
such a road, of which it is considered
that there are not more than ten miles
that have any engineering difficulties, and
these can le surmounted ut very moderate
cost. It is believed that the "entire road
with a certain amount of rolling stock can
be put in operation for less than half a
million dollars. We do not suppose that
the Government aie going into
railroad enterprise, but we feel
assured tLat of all the railroad enterprises
projected or undertaken in this Kingdom,
that no one offers stronger indncements for
Government subsidy than the contemplated
road around Oahu. Such a railroad would
promote values and develop the country to
a surprising extent, and although we do
not feel assured that it could be made a
paying enterprise at once, yet it is one so
full of promise that capitalists might well
venture to take stock in it, and the Govern
ment could well afford to subsidize it in the
promotion of the public interests.

A MINISTERIAL TOUR.
The Premier and Minister of Finance, ac
companied by a party of friends, left town
on Monday the 4tli inst., to make a tour of
the Island. The party went by way of the
Pali declivity, and arrived Monday after
noon at Kaneohe. where they spent the
night. Mr. Rose, proved as usual, a liberal
entertainer at this point. Tuesday morning
the 5th, the party rode over to Waimanalo
olantation. eight miles from Kaneohe. At
the plantation they were cordially received
by Mr. John A. Cummins the enterprising
manager, and joint proprietor of this ad
mirably situated and well organized estate,
On receiving an intimation from the Min
isters that they would like to meet.with the
employees on the estate, Mr. Cummins
promplty ordered a call of all his people
employed at the mill, and also of all those
engaged in planting for the mill and there
assembled about ninety Chinamen, thirty
Hawaiians and a few foreigners. The
Premier addressed the Hawaiians in their
own tongue and spoke to the Chinese
through an interpreter. His word to the
latter were substantially as follows:
" My Chinese Friends : I, and my col
league, who are Ministers of King Kalaka
ua, and appointed to duties in the adminis
tration of this Kingdom, nave lelt our oill
cial work and the comforts of our homes t
come and meet you and learn from actual
observation your condition and living 11
the country. We have come not only to
visit the native and foreign subject
of His Majesty ; bnt all who dwell
in these islands, and are seeking peaceably
to promote their own and the general wei
fare. Our King is the father and friend of
all the people of the Hawaiian Kingdom of
all races. He wants to be assured of your
welfare, and when I iook at you, and look
around me, and see the evidences of good or
der and of liberal and kindly management
I need enquire no farther to satisfy me that
you are doing well, and receive a fair re
ward for yeur labor. Is it not so?" To this
enquiry there was a loud and general re
sponse in the affirmative. Many Chinamen
spoke out saying; that they knew King Ka-
lakaua was their goou irienci.
The Premier said farther in speaking to
Hawaiians as well as Chinese.
"This is anew departure in this King
dom for Ministers of the King to g forth to
meet the people ami to confor with them
ourtlutvand our desire is to serw the in
terests and promote the welfare of the peo
ple of tho whole country. And how shall
we be well qualified to administer intelli
gently unless we intorm ourselves ny mti
mate personal eucountor ? It is true the
Kingdom is small, but its requirements can
not be studied altogether in an office. Min
ister are blamed for some things they h.ive
done, but most strongly for what they haw
not done. . There is a pretense that very big
things were expected of this Ministry, and
they have not satisfied public hope. Well,
they have been in office a little over six
months. They commenced their work at
the ilose of a period when the public treas
ury is usually empty. In some instances,
forncer Ministers have had to borrow money
at tte commencement of a new fiscal period
in order to carry on the Government, and
have even sold large bodies of public lands
at a great sacrifice, in order to put a little
money Into the public treasury but we
have not had occasion to do so ; we
have had money enough for current needs,
but we have not had any for public enter
prises; and how shall a workman labor
without proper tools? Will you expect a
eari-enter to build and construct without
any implements in his hands?'' When
these words were translated the Chinamen
smiled and shook their heads in the nega
tive. The Premier continued: " But now
ur treasury is filling up. My colleague,
the -Minister of Finance, will tell yon at
what rate taxes and duties are paid into
the trea-ury. We have now got tools
in our hands, and before we begin
to work, we want to go round to look
at the condition of the land and the re
quirements oi the people. Above all we
want to stud3' the welfare of the jeople.
The living and the health of His Majesty's
subjects, and of all residents and toilers on
these islands, are paramount considerations
in our minds. I, in the fulfillment of my
duties as President of the Board of Henlth,
desire to say that, in accordance with a ro
vismn made by the Legislatve Assembly,
the Board will shortly establish on this side
of the island two skilled physicians. This
announcement was received with applause.
And now, my Friends," said the Premier,
let me assure youagain that I rejoice in
riaving visited waimanalo. it presents a
scene ef much natural beauty, and at the
same time.illustrating well organized indus
try and liberal enterprise, xou cave a just
and fair minded employer, who has never, as
am nappy to learn, had a iiiigation wuu
an employee of the Waimanalo Plantation.
Continue thus to be reciprocally just, em
ployer and workingmen, and you will help
to establish a peaceful and prosperous state;
and will make it the pleasure as well as the
duty of Ministers of the King to serve you."
jdinister Kaai preceded nis remarxs witn
a general hand shake. Hawaiians and Chi
nese joined in a cordial salutation or both
Ministers. Minister Kaai then spoke in
his wonted happy way in his native tongue.
He touched upon the points of the Premier's
remarks with additional effect. The native
orator was interrupted by frequent applause;
and arter a short and leinng speecn, ionow
ing close upon the Premier's line of remark,
he was greeted at its close with enthusiastic

The Ministerial party rode from Waima
nalo to Kaneohe where they arrived at half
past 5 p.m. A meeting of citizens of Kane
ohe hud beeu called to assemble at the
Court house for 3 o'clock. A large gather
ing was assembled. The Court-house and
yard were filled with people, but owing to a
misunderstanding about the hour of tho
meeting, the late hour of arrival of Minis
ters and tho larger portion of the as
semblage having dispersed, another meeting
was called for the morrow, Weduesday, at 10
a.m. At tna i uour tne musters met ine
people of Kaneohe, assembled in the Court
house. There was a cordial feeling of wel
come to Ministers manifest on this occasion.
Premier Gibson addressed the assy mblag.
In addition to the substance of remarks
made at Waimanalo, he spoke as follows:
"I rejoice to see the evidences of iudustrr
and good order in and around Kaneoho.
Everything betokens intelligent employ
ment and a taithtul return or iarxr. l nopo ;
to see this pleasant and prosperous district, j
so near to the capital, brought nearer by j
increased facilities of communication, I wish j
to see the barrier of the present difficult,
and dangerous roadway ucroas the ridgo re- j
moved by the employment of engineering ;
skill in the improvement of the Pali road. :
Money has been appropriated in times past j
for this important object, but has not boen ;
used for that purpose. Again a sum of
money has been appropriated for this object, '
and is in the hands of the present Ministry ;
and will be used. I beg to say, however,
that the foremost question in the minds of
Ministers, and especlady with mo, as Presi
dent of the Board of Health, is to provide
for the sanitary welfare of the people. Pro
vision having been made for the supply of
destitute districts with medical assist
ance; it will be my pleasure and duty,
acting by order of the Board of Health to
send to this district a resident physician.
In my position as Minister of Foreign Af
fairs, I have a frequent evidence before me
of the good will and friendship entertained
by foreign powers towards our little State.
The assurances are most gratifying, and
they prove In some respect, the great value of
the tour of our King around the world.
His Majesty's personal encounter with po
tentates aud rulers abroad has awakened
not only a warm personal friendship to
wards His Majesty's person, but has made
our State, that appears as mere specks on
the map of the world, an object of great in
terest to foreign statesmen that she should
contiuue uninterrupted in her peaceful and
industrious progress. It rests with you and
your fellow-citizens throughout the Islands
to maintain our happy political state of In
dependence." Minister Kaai followed iu his usual tell
ing way in addressing his countrymen.
The reception and welcome of the Minis
ters on this occasion, was very enthusiastic.
Judge Kahulu spoke iu an impressive man
ner setting forth the great satisfaction felt
by the people of Kaneohe and Heeia,.jn
meeting the King's Ministers. Mr. Paikuli,
in the course of remarks expressing satisfac
tion at meeting with Ministers, said, and
he appealed to all present for the truth of
his statement, that there was not a man in
the district who had expressed openly
any dissatisfaction with His Majesty's
Ministers. The people welcomed their
presence among them as a new departure,
and he rejoiced that Koolaupoko district
gave the first welcome to Ministers going
forth to meet the people.
At noon of Wednesday, 6th instant, the
party lunched with Captain Ross at Heeia,
where they received a very cordi:d and
hospitable entertainmeut. Whilst en route
the party were stopped at Waikane by a
party of enthusiastic native people, who in
sisted upon a halt and an interchange of greet
ings. There had beeu no pnrpow of making a
call at Waikane, but the invitation was so warm
and urgent, that the party were induced to par
take of another lunch. The Premier inspired by
the cordiality of his entertainer, and their hav
ing assembled about 100 people at the plaee, he
addressed them, and was followed, as usual, by
Minister Kaai. The enthusiastic reception at
Waikane left a very pleasurable impression on
the minds of the Ministers. There was a bounti
ful entertainment provided for the party at Pu
naluu, where Mr. Chulan, a wealthy and enter
prising Chinese proprietor, was in person to
meet and welcome his guests. This valley, a
former seat of Hawaiian industry, where the taro
patches ia terraces ascended up to the hills, had
for years been abandoued as an almost profitless
marsh. The small-pox in 1853, killed about
ninety of the toilers in this beautiful valley, and
after that deathblow, the evidences of industry
and cultivation passed away, until the China
men came to plant the old taro patches in rice.
At this time not only the valley of Punaluu, but
a score of other valleys along the shores of
Oahu are now beautiful with their ripened yel
low rice fields, and the busy Chinamen are keep
ing step everywhere with short reaping hook
in hand cutting down the ranks of tall rice straw,
and trimming and clipping off the golden heads
of paddy to be thrashed by the tramping horses
that are going round their treadmills from early
dawn till night. The smoke of burning straw
ascends from a thousand rice fields along the
coast, and the flocks of tiny rice birds are flit
ting to and fro in uneasy distraction in conse
quence of the constant firing of musketry to
scare them away from the Chinamen's harvest.
There are 243 Chinamen at work, variously en
gaged iu the Punaluu Valley ; many of them
assembled and the natives of the vicinity, to
listen to the words of encouragement and ex
hortation from the Ministers, prior to their leav
ing on the morning of Thursday, the 7th inst.
The party reached Laie, the Mormon settlement,
about 2 p.m. They were cordially welcomed by
Mr. Partridge, the President of this com
munity, and his associates. As the Min
isters had been expected at an" earlier
hour, the people of this settlement had
been assembled for some length of time in
their house of worship, in order to listen to
the views of Ministers and to tender them a wel
come. President Partridge proposed to tho
Ministers arrived at his house, that as the peo
ple were waiting at the church, it would be well
to adjourn there to meet them. The reception
at this place by the people was particularly cor
dial and hearty. The Premier and Minister
Kaai addressed the people at some length. They
were continually interrupted by warm expres
sions of approval. At the close of the Minis
ters' remarks, and when leaving the building,
they were greeted with an unusual demonstra
tion of handshaking and a cordial Hawaiiau
aloha. This settlement bears evidence of excel
lent order and industry, and of mutual co-operation
between toilers and those who direct their
ndustry. After a kindly and hospitable enter
tainment at Laie, the party left on Frtday, the
8th instant after breakfast. The par.y were met
on the road near Kahuku by a few native people,
the neighbors of Judge Kaluhi, the well-known
and esteemed Magistrate of the district. The
Judge was iu company with the party, and had
been for a long part of the route. After a short
stay and interchange of kindly greetings be
tween these people and Ministers, the party
pushed on and reached the beautiful valley of
Waialua early in the afternoon. At this point,
Ministers found entertainment provided for them j
by order of His Excellency Governor Dominis,
nt the Governor's delightful Waialua residence.
DepntT Sheriff Araara catered admirably for the
refreshment and comtort of the party. The peo
ple at this place, desirous of meeting the Minis
ters, assembled at the old missionary meeting
house in the evening. The native Pastor E.
S. Tiinoteo, assisted by Judije S. K. Mahoe,
opened the meeting and introduced the Ministers.
Premier Gibson dwelt at same h-ugth upon in
cidents in his past careor and on the occasion of
a former visit to Waialaa. This was OTer 21
years ago, in the, month of July, 1SG1, when the
Missionary Father Emerson was alive. He had
been received kindly by hiui us a traveler, and
the worthy father invited him to a seat by him
in his pulpit in th's same buildiug, so that he
might speak a few words to the congregation
about his travels in the Malay Islands. Said the
Premier : " I was then a raveler without definite
purpose iu these islands, and now wbeu I come
again the second time to visit your beautiful
valley aud this same meeting house, I am a
Minister of your King, and come here to see in
what way I can best serve, in the exercise of my
public duties, His Majesty's sobjects at Waialua
us well as elsewhere throughout the Kingdom."
Dnriug his stay at this place, the Premier
called Uon the venerable aud highly esteemed
Mrs. Emerson, who with her husband had
hospitably entertained him in 1S61.

a thorough tet, the boring has at length beem
A short history of this work, with an account of
the various strata through which it has been car
ried, will prove interesting. The contract for
sinking the well was let by Mr. Campbell to Messrs
Cooke and Peddler. At a later stage Mr. Peddler re
tired, and Mr. Cooke continued the work single-
handed. And here to avoid any possible miscon
ception, it may be as well to nay that this Mr. C.
M. Cooke is not the well-known old resident here,
whoso name and initials are the name. The Mr.
Cooke whose werk we are about to describe is, so
far as Honolulu is concerned, a nsw man, with
whom the boring of ArtcsWn welln is a profession,
and who has only been some two or three year in
The place chosen for sinking the well is near the
eorner of Mr. Campbell's enclosed ground, which
lies immediately beyond the renidence of Mr. Geo.
W. Maofarlane in Kapiolani Park. No exact sur
vey of the place has been made, lint it has been
estimated that the site of the well is some twelve
or fourteen feet alwve the leTel of the xa. Hence
if water had been reached which would rise to Mr.
Fesslcr's datum lino for the Honolulu basin viz:
42 feet 10 iuches above sea level a " head " of
nearly 30 feet would have been secured. The sur
face stratum consisted of gravel and beach sand,
and this was followed by a d-ep layor of the rock
of which the buttreexof Leahi are formed, a lava
of no very compact character, and varying but
little in its character throughout. Then came a
eoral rock, evidently metamorphosed by heat and
lookiug like compact marble of a creamy white
color. As will be seen in the subjoined table, a
surprising depth of this rock was met with. No
horizontal bed of coral rock of anything like
similar thickness has been met with in boring any
other well in this neighlwrhood, and it seems evi
dent that at Diamond Head the coral layer has
been tilted to a considerable angle during the
formation of the adjoining volcanic hill. A variety
of strata followed the coral, most of them similar to
those passed through in other borings in Honolulu.
Then came fet of coral rock of the ordinary
kind, followed by a soft rock and then by a
dep layer of brown clay whieh was full of frag
ments of broken coral. Under this came 45 feet
f hard blno lava, then some thin layers of clay,
and finally, at a depth of 1'J.1 feet, porous lava
rock, similar to that from whieh wc obtain our
Artesian water supply in the city. In this rock,
some of which is so porous that it may lie blown
through, there were evidences that plenty of water
was present. The sand pump was an instrument
no longer needed, the debris from the chisel pass
ing away so freely that it was quite difficult to ob
tain satisfactory specimen of the rock. But such
water as there was proved to be salt as the sea
itself. After long, disheartening work Mr. Cooke
recommended a discontinuance of the boring ; bat
Mr. Campbell's patience and pluck were not
readily to be daunted. He had made up his mind
to ga to 1500 feet before he gave up the under
taking, and tu 1500 feet the boring was carried, but
unfortunately without reward.
The following table shows the character of the
strata bored through:

All the water found in surface wells in that
neighborhood is brackish, and so was that obtained
when Mr. Campbell's well waa bejtun. This stood
at about ea-level in the well. The water finally

actually as salt as brine, derived in all probability
from the a itself. This wau r stood in the casing

The Lata Dr. Paiey.
The death of Dr. Pusey has already drawn from
his countrymen, of all theological opinious, an ex
pression of admiration for his character, which, in
many quarters, was withheld while his living
presence lent a luster to the ritualiitio movement
which claimed him as one of its fathers. For a mo
ment, at least, his character has liecume a centre
of unity in the Engli.h Church. The nartisanshin
of religious ideas give way before the fact of a
good life appealing through death to the judgment
of the universal moral sense which never refuses
its homage to actual righteousness. The unanimity
ith which opposite church parties are now point
ing to Dr. Tusey's sincerity, courage, singleness of
purpose, fairness, gentleness, and practical religion.
in which all see the Christian ideal almost realized.
ought to admonish theolouical antagonist that
the real issiio of spiritn-tl life move far away from
their dispute. In England, however, this uni
versal desire to express admiratiou for his char
acter m iy delay, for a time, any real estimate of his
mental powers. His warmest admirers will soon
have to' admit that his intellect was inferior
to his spirit. Keble in his poetry, and Newman in
lus exquisitely disguised logic, showod greater
ability, and perhaps did more to enforce Pusey
ism " than did Pusey himself. Pusey was not thi
first reformer whoso mind was unable to take large
views of really great things. The great ideas of
Catholicity aud spiritual life, when revived by (the
High Church movement of fifty years ago, found in
him a narrow, though intense, expositor. He
seemed incapable of conceiving of that true
Catholicity which includes in the kingdom of God
everyone faithful to Divine truth, as revealed in
every age. For him " Catholic- truth" spoke its
last word from the lips of the Church Fathers of
the first few centuries. He was among the first to
recognize and denounce the dreading provincialism
of the Established Church of England ; but he
sought to escape from it, not, like the poetic Keble,
by rising into the ideal aspect of its doctrines and
worship, nor, like the courageous Newman, by en
tering tho historic reposo of the Roman Catholic
communion; but like a practical Englishman, by
emigrating to theearliest centuries of Christianity.
Amidst the contradictory voices of that troubled
epoch, his intellectual narrowness enabled him to
hear only the few which happenod to bo in agree
ruent with one another, and to gather from their
somewhat thin harmony that principle of "Catholic
authority " which led him to ignore all truth re
vealed ever since. While men like Dean Stauley
rejoiced to hear the voice of God in every age, a
living voice appealing to the living soul through
every event in history aud iu individual ex
porienco, Pusey s faith in divine illumination
shrank up into an exclusive attention to the partial
truths spoke in the Church's prattling day. To
men like Maurice, the formulated doctrines of
Christianity were but openings into principles and
truths in harmony with the universe itself and,
therefore, too large to find complete expression in
dogma; Pusey regarded Christian doctrines as final
verities relating only to a supernatural life aud de
posited in the Primitivo Church, to be guarded by
a perpetual succession in the ministry. The true
historic spirit which, to so many earnest minds to
day, supplies the best commentary upon Christian
doctrines, seemed to Pusey tho bitterest enemy of
the faith. Tho fact is, he is unaware of any divine
movement iu his own times apart from tho
" Tractarian " agitatiou which enlisted his whole
life : and perhaps, no other church leader has ever
left a mass of writing in which there is such a
manifest ignorance of the spocial light and truth
revealed iu his own generation.
a lie uuptn and reality or Dr. rusey s own
spiritual life are bcyend doubt. His intense ap
peals to his followers to seek holiness of life evi
dently come from tho depth of personal realization
At the same time, in common with the teaching
of tho whole Anglo-Catholic party, he leaves the
impression that holiness is not the perfecting of
human nature as such, but rather the training of
the soul in special and peculiar exercises to fit it
for Heaven. The conception of spirituality, as a
pervading sense of the Diviue Presence everywhere
and in everything, giviug tone to tho inmost
thoughts and character to the utmost acts, was
incomprehensible to him. He seemed to see in
Qod a reluctance to approach man, except through
certain proscribed transactions in church and at
the altar ; and he enforce the necessity of such
spiritual acts, as though they were signals of dis
tress to attract the help of a remote and inatten
tive Providence, rather than as grateful expressions
of our sense of His perpetual nearness. Indeed,
much of the attractiveness of the extreme High
Church view of religion lies in its notion that, in
specified times and acts, man can work effects in
deity itself. There will probably always exist two
contrasted aspects of religion : that which regards
the whole world as the family of God, in which
spiritual life means the consciousness of the family
tie drawing men out of self-hood into brotherhood
toward all on earth, and into an aspiring sympathy
with all in heaven ; aud that other view which
regards the world as a wreck, and spiritual life as
the diflicult process of being rescued from it. Men
like Dr. Arnold, Maurice, Stanley, aud Robertson
represented the first view ; Pmey and his followers
represented the second. The High Church move
ment has lost much of the intensity which fired
tho early Pusoyites with th- Idoa of rescue, and in
its present ritualistic phaso has degenerated into
that exterualization of religion which makes wor
snip an almost physical satisfaction to the
modern ritnalist. This, indeed, was the sorrow of
the great leader's old age and more than once he
Iu cd his voiee against such a misapprehension of
eachiug. He was too spiritually great to

that it was the true greatness of his spiritual pur
pose which, in spite of his narrow view of catho
licity and his one-sided view of personal religion,
quickened the spiritual life of the English Church,
when it seemed so dead that nothing but the in
tense call of vehemently earnest men could arouse
it. Many other voices helped to work that miracle ;
but Dr. Pusey's, although not the strongest nor
the sweetest, had just the tone to reach the dead
ened English ear. The church which he helped to
arouse noeds minds of a different order to guide
her energies to enlightened issues, under the in
spiration ot a wider horizon than Pusey's intellect
could discern ; but, after all, tho most enlightened
church of the futuro can have no nobler ambition
than to multiply characters like this. His eccle
siastical and theological view were provincialism
itself usurping the tones of catholicity ; but his
spirit and life witnessed for those universal verities
of practical righteousness, which constitute the
true catholicity of all earnest and enlightened men.
