In an article on the development of the
material resources of this country tlurinff
the past yeiir which we published in the
weekly Pacific Commercial Advertiser
we dwelt upon the large and constantly in
creasing investment of foreign capital in
Hawaiian agriculture and commerce. To
the remarks then made we have a few
words to add. Whilst it is thus true that
foreign capitalists have made Import
ant investments , here, it is also
most evident that in giving aid to the de
velopment of the industrial resources of
this Kingdom they have reaped a rich
reward. In securing thi9 return for their
enterprise they have been helped over
initial difficulties by the Reciprocity
Treaty with the United States and one of
the brightest points in the legacy which
the Old Year leaves to the New is the fair
prospect of a renewal of that mutually
beneficial compact. Nevertheless, it must
be remembered that the basis of alt the
wealth of the country is the fertility of its
soil. Hawaii has proved a tempting field
for the enterprise of the foreigner, and the
investment of his capital, because here he
has found a soil productive beyond the or
dinary measuie and has been able to carry
on his industries amid an orderly and law
abiding population, where his property and
person are as f-afe as in the most civilized
countries of the world. Heie he has neither
to fear the rapacity of an unscrupulous'and
irresponsible government or of a pack of
vampire officials, nor the incapacity of a
feeble reign that cannot make its laws
obej'ed. Neither the tyranny of rulers nor
popular lawlessness exist here to interfere
with the peaceful pursuit of his industry.
These two things combined the richness of
the noil and the perfect freedom and secu
rity in which its fruits can be reaped are
the true foundations of the county's
wealth; and so long as we can boast of
these, so long will capital and enterprise
find attractions here. We may therefore
fairly indulge in the hope that the story of
Hawaii's industrial progress in 1S82 may at
last be repeated in 1SS3 and through many
years to come.
(Daily, Jan. 2nd.)
Preparations for the coronation cere
mony have commenced in the Palace
grounds. The frame-work of a grand semi
circular pavilion, capable of seating 4,000
persons, is partly erected in front of Iolani
Palace. Also the frame work of a smaller
octagonal pavilion in which the ceremony
will take place. The whole of the wood
work of these structures is to be ready for
artistic decoration by the loth instant, when
the artistic work will be taken in hand by
two French artists, Messrs. Buchmann &
Rupprecht. A space between the edifices
will be floored over for the purpose of a
Grand State Ball and other festivities,
and complete arrangements have been
made by the Executive Committee of
the Privy Council for carrying into effect
the Corenation Act. The appropriations
for this event by the Legislative Assembly
will be amply sufficient to provide for all
necessary expenditures. There has been in
the community a somewhat prevalent
opinion that this event would incur an
euormous expenditure of $100,000 or more.
This i entirely without foundation. The
Government expenditure will be kept
strictly within the limit of the fund appro
priated, and if there be any larger expen
diture on account of the coronation it will
be out of the private purses of officials and
citizens who desire to honor the occasion.
We understand that invitations for this
grand ceremonial are now being prepared
The leading events of what we may term
the Coronation festivity will be Feb
ruary 12th, the Coronation ceremony, to be
followed by a Grand State Ball, State Ban
quet, Grand luau, Regatta and Races. For
the occasion of the Coronatiou ceremony,
the Court, the chief officials, and particip
ants will be in full dress or Court costume,but
it will not be necessary that the spectators,
having seats in the Grand Pavilion, should
be otherwise than well dressed, as is custom
ary on important receptions of a public na
ture, buttherewill be an opportunity on the
occasion of the Grand State Ball for a full
display of the most elaborate costumes of all
our fair ladies. However, we presume that
the proper etiquette of the occasion will be
fully announced by His Majesty's Cham
In the course of his very eloquent and
impressive sermon last Sunday evening
Mr. Cruzan said, " Any Christian home in
Hono'ulu worthy of the name is open to
any young man who will abandon evil
We know this to be true, and we would
ask every young man in this community
to remember it. Christian houses are open
to those who try to lead Christian lives ;
and a warm welcome is uesured to him who
will abandon evil associates. Young men
have said, " We have not been invited to
these Christian homes. Those good people
would wait a long time before they would
invite tt to any of their parties, and though
they profess to feel a great deal of interest in
us, and anxious that we should not drink
and smoke, and spent! our evenings in the
bar and billiard room 4, yet when it comes
to inviting us to our houies they don't do
it." True, as long as young men do frequent
places where the surroundings are for evil
and not for good; where intoxication, pro
fane language, betting, and lewd conversa
tion is the rule, they will not be invited to
homes where all these are unknown. But
if any yonng man will stop go:ng to t;-e
bar-rooms; stop spending money for liquor;
stop associating with those whose commu
nications are evil, and by his presence in
places where Christians meet together for
amusement and rational enjoyment, show
that he is trying to exchange evil for good,
he will be encouraged, assisted and helped.
No young ian can say that the proprie
tors of bar-rooms "invite" him to come
ami see them ; and, if a young man resorts
to those places because they are light, and
cosy, and provided with reading matter,
and does not spentl any money for liquor,
cigar-, or in paying for games, he will find
that-1e is. not welcome or wanted. The
Christian homes and institutions in Hono
lulu offer all reasonable means of enjoy
ment to young men who seek pleasure, and
are willing to pay for it by practising
sobriety and conscientiousness, and leading
true manly Christian lives.
Daily, Jan. 4th.)
The immunity which Honolulu has had
from tires of any great magnitude, for the
past few years, should in no wise affect the
precautions to be taken to prevent the out
break and possible spread of a devastating
conflagration. The most thickly populated
part of the town, the Chinese quarters, are
built almost entirely of wood, and some of
it so hardened and sun dried, as only to re
quire a spark to set it ablaze. Incendiar
ism Is a crime not altogether unknown to
the Chinese, but so far it is a crime that is
seldom known to have been resorted
to in Honolulu. In another column we re
produce from the Fireman a short article
on the subject o: the origin of fires. It
contains a few suggestions that mi(,"nt
be worthy of the consideration of our
local authorities. There always
in.. re or less doubt ,e jen'S tlie
origin of fires. Incendii'- . . serious
A be more di
crime under any circumstances, but
more particularly so in a populous district.
Chinese new year is said to be the season of
fires amongst the Chinese, and as that time
Is approaching, too J much care cannot be
taken to prevent the outbreak of fire. In
surance Compauiea might do well to pro
secute all parties indulging in the illegal
use of fire-crackers. During the past year,
there were two or three lives lost by fire,
aud though the usnal Coroner's inquest
was held in each case, still if some special
legal machinery had been s&t to work, fuller
information might have been obtained as to
the origin of such Area. In Houolulu we
have an excellent fire brigade, but often
before their services can be brought into re
quisition, the damage is-completed and
some valuable lives have been sacrificed.
Our energetic Fire Marshal does much to
avert the dangers of fires, but any evil dis
posed person could set his efforts at naught
were they so Inclined. As many of our
Chinese residents do not read English, and
are, as a natural result, unacquainted
with the severity of our laws regarding
arson, it might well repay the cost aud
trouble to have the Chapter xxii of the
Penal Code printed and posted widely
throughout the country, more especially in
the block betwixt Maunakea and Nnuanu
streets We beg to draw particular atten
tion to the 2d, 3d, and 4th sections of the
Penal Code which we reprint herewith:
2. Whoever willfully and maliciously burns
iu the night time, the dwelling house of another,
in which there is at tlio time of such burning any
occupant or inmate, is guilty of arson in the first
degree, and shall be puninhed by death, or impris
onment' at hard labor for life, in the discretion of
" 3. Whosoever willfully and maliciously burns
in the day time, the dwelling house of another, is
guilty of arson in tho second degree, and shall be
puninhed by imprisonment at hard labor for life,
or any number of years, in the discretion of the
" 4. A malicious burning, is the offence of
burning & thing, whether that of the offender or
of any other, person, with intent to injure another,
or without any justifiable motive or object, and
with a reckless disregard of the life, or personal
safety, property, or legal rights, or interests of
another, where the same are obviously, immediate
ly, and imminently endangered by the burning."
Milk for Chickens.
Mb. Ltman. in speaking on milk fer chick
ens in the Poultry World, says : 1 am
not a poultry fancier in the common accep
tation of the term that is, I do not breed
fancy strains ; but for several years 1 have
bred and raised poulty for market, my aim
being to get the greatest weight of meat,
and to this end, ever since 1372, I have
made liberal use of cow's milk with my
young chickens. My method from the first,
and 1 have sien no reason to ohange or
modify it, has been to heat the milk until it
turned to a curd, as in the process followed
in making what is called Dutch cheese,'
only -not carrying it out until the curd be
comes quite as hard as for the cheese ; the
whey is mostly pressed out, and the mass is
then white, soft and easily disintegrated.
The small white crumbs, when placed be
fore a toddling chick not yet six hours old,
are too tempting morse's to lose, and thy
pick thern up busily, and with a comic ear
nestness delightful to witness. No one who
has ever had opportunity to observe can
hve any idea ef the rapidity of the change
that takes place in your chickens which
have daily rations of curd issued to them.
They thrive prodigiously. Day by day they
stretch out in stature and multiply in
strength. At a week old they are sturdy,
active, and sharp-eyed. They becomes
courageous, adventurous, - and independent
They take long journeys araund the premises
for purposes of forage and discovery, dispen
sing for the time with the usual maternal
escort. Every faculty nf mind and function
of body is brought iuto a st ite of the high
est activity. So rapid and marked is their
development under the stimulus of this diet
that each new day bring its discoveries and
surprises. The little ball of down of a week
ago was yesterday a tall, v.g rous. hungry
chick; to-dy you can see improvement;
and in the delicately-rounded thighs, the bul
full breast, the upright carriage, and budd
ing primaries, you can distinctly trace the
out lines of the future cock-of-the-walk,'
or the beautiful mother of a noble brood. To
morrow he wili be bigger, sturdier, hungrier,
and plainer feathered than now. and at six
weeks okl he will fill the fryingpan. not only
with savoury odours, but with nearly 21b. of

of feeding has been pursued here for years.
We know of a case where a lady had a doz

According to telegrams sent to the Pittsburg
Weekly Dispatch, New Yorkers passed through
a rather curious experience on Sunday, December
3d, when the attempt was made to enforce the
Sunday laws latelj re-enacied in the Penal Code.
The Police Board had exprcted their opinion
that delivering newspapers and ice cream and
running cars and ferries were works of mercy.
Otherwise, they left the interpretation of the law
to the policemen, and the Police Justices in
moat instances decided that the policemen had
got it all wrong, after the fashion of all bodies
of ordinary men when left to their own judgment.
Many amusing stories were afloat concerning the
operation ot the law. One was that Dan Mace
had been twice arrested for speeding a trotter;
another that Mrs. Lang try 'a baggage bad to be
transferred from the Albemarle Hotel in cabs, as
the baggage wagon was stopped; and a third was
that a member of the Knickerbocker Club bad
been unable to buy a tooth-brush at a drug-store,
which showed that the law was a serious incon
venience to that numerous class who always post
pone the buying of toilet" articles until the
S.tbbath. E?ery Police Captain's opiuion l the
law was the law of bis district. Captain Clinchj,
of the Twenty-second street 6tation, allowed

Cuptaiu Williams, ot the Thirtieth street sta

The proceedings in the Jefferson Market Polico
Court are a fair sample of thoc in tho other po
lice courts. Justice Bixby came into the court
with unpolished boots, lie was particularly in
dulgent to the boot-blueks who hud committed
crimes agains religious liberty. A length, when
one who hud been nri tested lor Mucking boots in
Eleventh street, had been dinclntrt'cd. the Judgo
said tu him, " Step aid'. tu hoy, and wait until
I can sprak to you uaiii." A noon when there
was a lull in buhinons, Justice Kixhy beck oiied the
boy into his private room and sat down to have
hi hoots blacked. While the hoy worked the
Justice wrote out this memorandum:
At tho Grand Central depot there was tioarly

merely to prohibit general traffic.
The proprietor o a barber-simp was arrested
with his chief assistant while he was shaving
guests of the hotel where he had his shop.
Justice Bixby at once dischargud thorn. He said:

The Justices had in all 20 cases under the Sun

The street sale of the weekly Sunday papers

The old gentleman poibly wished Ins eon to be
a good scrivener and no more. But this has been
the common fate of bards. A quainter, though
by no means an extraordinary, example of mis
taken projects for a son is seen in the case of
Hampden. His mother pressed bita in his youth
to ask for a peerage, which no doubt a man of
his birth and wealth could nave obtained of
James I. for the asking and the paying.
Hampden could have rendered good service in the
House of Lords, but the acceptance of honors
from the King must have more or leu attached
him to the Court party. With all his honesty
be might have been led to see many things with
a different eye. The course of our annals need
not necessarily have changed for that ; but who
knows? Suppose Hampden a peer, and, fer his
abilities and firmness, the trusted Minister of
Charles as well as Jmei. Suppe Hampden
convinced that the power of Parliament required
checking, and that the Crown should persist io
the attempt to raise taxes on its own authority,
w ho would bave resisted the writ of ship-money ?
If ono might hazard a guess, one would answer
ft omas Wentworth. Having Hampden on its
side, the Government might have taken no trouble
to win over Wentworth, or have felt that there
was not rojin for both in on party. And we
may depend upon it Wentworth was determined
t make hiuisclf a name.
Brougham's mother showed more wisdom than
Hampden -. Wheu (nil that Henry was
C' ancellor, site quietly said, " It's well, hut for
my part 1 h 1 1 rathnr ho had remained Mr.
Brougham, nd member for the county of York.'
The peculiar distinction of representing the un
divided County ol York nuM have ceased with
the passing of the Ujlorui Hill, hut Brougham
e oo nl have been shelved by the Whis in 1835
hud he retained the facilities for making himself
trou'desome which tt seat in tho House or Com
mons alooe could give. It may have been soma
foreboding of the futuro which in 1830 causod
him to manoeuvre for the Mastership ol the Bolls,
then tenable by a member o! the Lower House.
But it was felt that such an arrangement woull
have left him too powerful.
John Paul Richter's m rther seconded her son
in remarkable fashion. While he was yet wait
ing fur fame, working steadily but gaining little,
she was uot satisfiod with making their homo as
tidy and comfortable as might be, but toiled hard
to earn a little money by spinning. Her receipts
were duly entered in a bojk from which one
learns tint for the month of March 1793. they
amounted to twofloiins. fifty-one kio.i'jtcrs, three
pfenning about (or shillings in all. S te had
her reward. In 1793 earns the brilliant success
of Hesperus," and when the widow Richter died
in the following year she waa happy in the
knowledge that Germany at length acknowledged
John Paul for one of her great men.
The Tribune says : The message of President
Arthur is a creditable document, and deserves
the careful attention of the public. . No similar
document lor many years has been awaited with
more universal indifference, and therefore there is
no danger that this lack of interest may prevent
the thoughtful consideration which the Presi
dent's many judicious observations deserve. He
opens with the customary teview of foreign
affairs, ami this portion of the message, while
lacking the firm grnpp of the subject which made
tho review last year the strongest feature of his
first message, contains considerable iuteresting
information. On financial subjects the Presi
dent 1 displays the ' same clearness which
was conspicioun iu his treatment of the
question last year. He agrees with the recom
mendation made by the Secretary of the Treasury
on the quest ion or a reduction of the large sur
plus of the Treasury. His own views are that
nil internal taxes, save those on distilled spirits,
can be prudently abrogated. He thinks this
atrtOgation could bo accomplished by a simplica
ti in of the machinery of collection, which would
save the Government at least $2,500,000 and
retire hi teen hundred to two thousand ofllciall
from the service Ho is itpposod to the Iota
abolition nf internal taxes, because the duties on
imports alone are not sulfi.nuut for all the needs
of the Government, and because Mich abolition
would be a serious, if nil uucurmoiuituhlo,
obotacle to a thorough revi-i hi ol the tariff. This
haa had ihe approval of nunyoT our must capable

Potato salad is one of the best aud most easily
made side dishes for tea. Boil the potatoes or
ste.uu them with their jackets oa. When they
are .lone, remove the skins, und let the potatoes
gt-1 utirely cold, then Hlice them in thin slices.
Make a dressing of b ird boiled eggs, chopped.
a Utile onion also chopped, and as much salad
oil, bait, pepper, parseiey, etc., as your taste
dictates. Be careful, wheu mixing the dressing
with the potatoes, not to break the slices ; toss
lightly with a fork, or, better still, shake the
dish which holds them. Line the salad-dish
with small lettuce leaves ; pour in the salad,
aud yon have ait inviting dish for the table.

Thkrk is much significance in this anecdote
about Canning, the English statesman: "We
walked into the woods to bave a quiet talk, and
as we passed some ponds I was surprised te find
that it was a new light to him that tadpoles
turned into frogs. 'Now, don't you,' he said,
'go and tell that story to the next fool you meet.'
Canning could rule the British nation, but some
people think a man who does not know the natural
history of frogs must be an imbecile in the treat,
tuer.t of men."
''There is reason to expect thai a new Ministry
ha fer some time been seriously under contem
plalion," at caucue held in a prominent mer
cantile offio on the "Beach," "und that it will he
composed ef men capable of commanding sonfi
dence," Mr. Murphy, the leading confidence man,
wss mentioned for a prominent position in con
nection with a leading schoolmaster and a retired
officer. However, the departure of Mr. Murphy
has somewhat disarranged that programme; and
it is hoped that the schoolmaster will not farther
disarrange it by his departure. We be to say
that this information is not authentic; but has
about as much substantial foundation us the sur
mise of a contemporary on the subject of a new
Cabinet. The Oazehound says; "The delicate
problems of the Reciprocity Treaty,"" etc., can
be Bolved only by brain and experience." Now
the schoolmaster and the retired officer have the
" brain " of course, but they have not the ex
perience, and our worthy Minister and Commis
sioner at Washington have the experience, but
the " brain " is questionable. Now where is to
be found the admirable combination, by which
only these problems can be solved? We trust
that the mercantile offiee on t lie beach will solve
the question, and indicate to ait expectant pub
lic the perfect diplomacy divinely appointed tu
solve all the delicacies of the situation.
