The Times " Leapixo Article. Estrttct from
the London Times : Passing by a crowd of minor
notions, we come upon the exhibit of the Waltham
Watch Company, which, in economical importance,
is perhaps superior t anything else shown. The
rivalry of the watches of this Company has already
been felt by our own makers, and a hesitating at
tempt was made last session, in the interest of the
Coventry manufacturers, to prevent the watch
cases of the Company receiving the English stamp,
which certifies that they are made of gold. It
would seem that the Waltham Watches may defy
all attempts to exclude them in this indirect way.
Their tirst claim to public approval was derived
from the extraordinary nicety of their construction.
They were made with such jierfect exactitude that
the parts of all watohes of the saute cla-s could be
interchanged, and. production lein, thus made
possible on a large scale, cheapness as well as excel
lence was secured. But the Company have gone
on introducing improvements in their art, and the
compensation balance they have devised serais to
have overcome the standing difficulty of the vary
ing expansibility of the spring and the wheel. It is
said that the delicacy of construction of the me
chanism invented by the Company is such that a
micrometer they exhibit at Paris measures the
twenty-tive-thousandth part of an inch, and might
readilv be divided under a lens into one-hnndred-
thousandth parts. M. McIxf.bxv, Agent for this

Ix the absence of the usual police station expert

Occasionally we hear of arrests for fast riding
in the country. It was only last week that a zeal

Palama to bring back two Chinamen who, in his
idea, were going beyond regulation pace. They
admitted they were in a hurry and bound to Ewa,
but the constable overtook them at Kalihi, arrested
them and they were fined. On Saturday last, a
native mounted on a frisky scrub, came round
corner of King and Fort. streets, collided with two
gentlemen going in the opposite direction, and
after clearing himself, galloped very hard down the
narrow partof Fort street. A policeman saw all this,
but did not interfere. In the opinion of the public, it

Preston Davis, a negro, was charged as a
commou nuisance by keeping a gambling house.
At the time the police entered his premises there
were five men seated around a table playing
cards, and there was money on the table, to wit.
v x. lne prisoner s detc-nce was, that they
were playing tor cider. His Honor, before pass
ing senteuce, gave a lengthy opiuiou on Smith
street rowdyism, ami the disreputable characters

house tiiat the dispute arose the week previous.
which resulted in tutting and wounding. It had
been held in the feupreme Court by the late
Chief Justice Harris, that where parties meet iu
a house and play games of chance the proprietor
oi the Mouse could not be held liable und there
common nuisance law if he received no benefits
from the games played. Iu this case it was
different It had been clearly shown that the
prisoner had received money out of the "pot,"'
wnicn lact constitutes a common nuisance
under the luw. He would pass such a sen

iroin resuming the practice, nud also one
that would be a warning to others who in

Kiehl, E. liichardson, and WilliamBrown, were
charged with gambling on Thursday, on the
premises of Preston Davis. The two last named
turned King's evidence, and were not prose

that to take part in a game in which money was
lost and won,- was sumeient to brina them in
guilty under the Statuta. Beckford was looked
upon as one of a crowd who form a great
nuisance in tins town, lie was nearly killed the
other day through an affray originating in this
disreputable house, still he did not appear to be
scared. He had gone right back again like a
common gambler, in addressing the other two
prisoners, His Honor expressed regret to see
them mixed tip with such bad company. He
sentenced Beckford to ten days' imprisonment
and a fine of $10. Mitchell and Kiehl were sent
to gaol for 24 honrs and fined $10 each,

Ix compliance with the request embodied
in the following communication addressed
to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, hU Kx-
cellency has directed a circular to be pre

Hawaiian Government abroad, enclosing a
copy of the Declaration of which we give

lication may be given to the indignant de
nial of the German residents on the Islands
of the statements made in the papers re

To His Excellency Walter M. Gibson, Hi Hawaiian
Majesty's Minister of l-oreign Affairs:
Sib. The undersigned beg leave to refer your
Excellency to the conversation which we had with
rou concerning a newspaper article which appeared
iu the Dailu Reriete. No. 203, of August SI, 1SS2.
headed "Modern Slavery," in conseqneuee of
which the German residents in these Islands have
signed a declaration refutig tho misrepresenta
tions contained in the article above alluded to. We
now have the honor to submit to your Excellency
a copy of the original declaration in German, a
translation of which into English, together with a
list of subscribers, has already been handed in. and
most respectfully beg to request that your Excel
lency will cause the same to be printed, with such
comments aa His Majesty's Government may see
n t and useful, and to distribute the same to tho
Hawaiian Consuls abroad for further publication.
e hate the honor to remain
Yonr Excellency's most ob't nervants,
H. A. WIDEMANN,
HEINll F. GLADE.
In several German and Austrian newspapers
which have come to hand by late mails, we find de
scriptions of affairs here, which, if true, would till
with shame and dismay every just and honest man,
and especially us who live in this country
Among others tho-Vailu lieciew in its No. 203,
of August 31, 1882, produces an article headed
"Modern Slavery," from which we quote :' "That
the trade in human nosh on the Sandwich Islands
has latterly become quite common, and that it oc
curs daily that laborers change their owners ; that
the value of a good strong man was considered to
be $200, and that or a smart pretty girl ?;!00, and
that sales wero made at such rates." At the close
of this article our countryman, Mr. J. C. Glade,
the Swedish-Norwegian Consul, who is at the same
time Imperial German Consul, is acensed that in
his former qualification he had placed under arrest
and fasting Norwegians working on the Island plan
tations who had asked his advice and assistance
The Daily Iieeieto bases tho above articlo on the
statements of two Norwegians, who in companv
with about four hundred of their countrymen, had
left Norway in December, lasu, aud bound them
selves by contract to work three years on sugar
plantations here, against free passage to the Sand
wich Istands and a monthly pay of ;'.!. R) (about 38
marks), with tree lodgings and board for them
selves and their families. It is understood that
only the men are bound to work ; the women and
children, however, may demand work and receive
for such remunerative pay.
The above two Norwegians, named Katzhorn
and Anderson, soon after tkeir arrival, broke their
obligations by desertion, absconded to San Fran
cisco, and have found there a willing ear with tho
San Francisco Chronicle, a newspaper entertaining
ill-feeling towards the Islands. Their malicious
slanderings were published first in June, 1881, and
from this source, which in all justice may be termed
an impure one, are derived the reports concerning
me uisgraceiui Biaie 01 aiiairs oil me Hawaiian
Islands which have lately been copied by many
Wo, the. undersigned Germans, after having been
obliged to make the disagreeable experience that
even respectable newspapers do not hold it incon
sistent with their dignity to represent to their
readers the malicious inventions of run-away ad
venturers as facts, and to bring before the public
the names of well-reputed persons in a manner cal
culated to harm their honor, declare hereby, that a
state of affairs as described in the Daily AVriVin is
neither possible at present nor lias it ever existed
during the past twenty-five or thirty years.
Personal freedom is, thanks to a well-regulated
legislation, as secure here as in those countries
which claim the highest civilization, and the legal
decrees concerning the relation between employer
and workingman are entirely just and founded on
those now in existence in the United States of
There occur here, as well as everywhere in the
world, disagreements between employer and work
ingmen, which needs hardly to bo mentioned and
much less to le enlarged upon. Rut such disagree
ments are carefully inquired into by our Courts
and decisions given in a like manner. Not only is
every facility granted to the workingman to ob
tain justice, but the Government has also taken an
initiatory step by creating an office with the duty
to protect the interests of the immigrated working
men. This office (the Board of Immigration) with
the Minister of Interior as President, takes care
that the immigrants who arrive here are distributed
among the plantations with a view to their family
relationships. A high salaried official of tho Board
of Immigration visits, several times during the
year, the entire number of plantations, in order to
convince himself that the workingmen are provided
with good and ample lodgings, good food, and
with everything else winch they are entitled to.
Tho article 111 the Daily Jletueir, referred to
above, contains the following passage : " It occurs
daily that workingmen change their owners."
There can bo no dispute about such change of em
ployers, because the law provides especially that
under no circumstances can a lalxr contract le
transferred by tho employer alone. Even the agree
ment of the workingman is not yet sufficient, be
cause the law requires that in order to validate
such transfer of contracts, there is not only neces
sary the agreement between employer and work
ingmen, but also tho sauotion of the Board of Im
migration, who in the time of tho first engagement
has acted as protector of the laborer, who was then
unacquainted .with the circumstances on these
It would require too much tpace to consider
every point of the libel, but we wish once more to
emphasize that the description of affairs as spoken
of by the Daily Review is untrue.
We require in no way the assistance of news
papers at home, but we demand that they will lie
truthful and conscientious when speaking about
us, and that they will not in a frivolous manner
publish untrue statements which mnst damage our
moral and business character.

How Russian Girls Are Courted-
Love is the same the world over, but
'courting' is managed very iliflerently in
different countries. Russian courting,
among the middle Claris, is peculiar. Tho
first Whit-Sund.ny after Ihe young girl is
acknowledged by her mother to be of mar
riageable years she is taken to the Petersburg!!
summer-garden, to join the 'bridal promen
ade.' This consists of the daughters of the
Russian tradesmen walking in procenaion,
followed by their parents. Up and doxyn
they go, pretending to chat with each other
and pretending to take notice of the young
men the tradesmen's sons, dressed in their
best clothes who walk in another proces
sion on the other side. However, every
now and then, some young fellow slips out
of his proper rank and adds himself to the
line of girls on the other side, speaking to
one pirticularly. The parents of the girl
join in the conversation in a few moments
and soon they leave the promenade and are
joined by the parents of the young man.

over before, but on this occasion everyone
pretends to be surprised. On the next day

The Globular Form of the EAjnr.
A new proof of the globular form of th
earth has been produced by two scientists in
! Geneva, MM. Dufour and Farrel. They
i have called attention to the fact that the
images of steamers and th surrounding
mountains, when reflected upon jhe surface
j of the immense lake, invariably appeared in
, a diminished 6ize. Hence they conclude
; that the surtace of the immense lake must
j be bent in a convex shape, otherwise it
j could not produce the same results as a
1 Japanese diminishing mirror, or a convex
'ens. Of course, this observation is not
i confined to the Lake of Geneva, but must
be true of all great water-surfaces which are
sufficiently still and placid to serve as mir-
rors. A critic has nsked whv this nheno.
menon has not been noticed' until recently.
MM. Dufor and Farrel, reply that it has
possibly been noticed by private observers,
