Descriptive article of the Coronation of
j King Kalakaua have appeared in all the
j leading journals both here, and on the con-
tiiicnt, and much interest 1)aS been taken
in the details of the ceremony, the King's
viit to Eurojieaii courts being still well
I remembered. Excellent illustrations of the
i scene of the coronation, from Honolulu
photographs, have been publishsd both by

THE SOLAR ECLIPSE,
j Although the total eclipse of the sun on
! the fith of May next will be a thing of the
past, when this reaches Ilouolulu, still a
; few remarks on the subject may be of inter-
est. This eclipse lasts six minutes and
none longer will probably occur within the
j next 1C0 years. It will be partially visible
i in many places, but as its path of totality
lies almost entirely across the South Paci
fic Ocean, it only touches laud at the little
island, known as Caroline or Flint Island,
10 z .South lat.. and 150 z West long., lying
north of Tahiti and west of the Marquesas.
This desolate and uninhabited island of
only 5 miles extent, which is out of the
track of any route of commerce or travel, is
now the rendezvous of international astro
nomers. A French expedition, headed by
the celebrated Professor Jansseu, sailed in
February last tti a French corvette from St.
Nazaire for Caroline Island direct. The
! British Royal Society end out two astro-
nomers, Me,rs. oods and Lawrence, who
i arrived at Panama in .March, from where
j they proceeded to Caliao. Peru. At tLis
j place they expected to Join the American
expedition from San Francisco, aud both
parties would then sail together for their
destination on a chartered vessel. An Ita
lian astronomer, Professor Tacchini, of the
Home observatory, has gon with the
Among the manyjobjects of interest to be
shown at the forthcoming International
Fisheries Exhibition at this place, is a
series of corals and sponges collected by
J Lady Dra.ey during the voyage of the. Sun
i beam. This collection includes several spe-
cimens of corals quite new to science, in
cluding one which has been named "Bala
nophylla Kalakauai," in honor of the Ha
waiian King, and which is described by
Mr. B .yee Wright, the naturalist, i.i U.e
''Annals and Magaziue of Natural His
tory." Mr. Joseph Kofi, has been ap
proved as Royal Hawaiian Consul at
Fraukfort, on the Maiu, by the Emperor
of Germany, as announced in the ofticial
Gazette of the 11th instant.
Professor Adolph Bastian, the celebrated
ethnologist, who visited Honolulu some
years ago, has just published, an article on
ancient Hawaiian manuscripts in the "Pro
ceedings of the Berlin Geographical Society
Vol. 17, No. C," and also a Look on his tra
vels iu the Pacific, dealing with Tahiti,
Tonga, Samoa, Fiji, New Zealand and

Sax Teas-Cisco, May 5th, 1933.
Secretary Folger still keeps in mind the af
fairs of th Hawuiian sugar trad? and has laid
himself open to criticism by appointing as a
member of the new Commission of Inquiry Mr.
John F. Searle of the Havemever Sugar Beiining
Company, who in the past has been one of the
most active agents of the refining industry be
fore Congress. His appointment as Secretary of
the Ilavemayer Sugar Refining Company was
made several months ago after a harmonious
undt-rstatiilLug had been reached by the sugar
interests cf the E';t in relation to the reduction
of duties on sng ir. Mr. Searle is a representa
tive of that part of the trade which is opposed
to the shipment of Hawaiian sugars from San
Francisco to the East, and wid leave no stone
unturned to prove the frauds of which Perrj-
lielmont complained in Congress. Poor Judge
Folger is called a weak element in the Cabinet
not only politically bat physically, aud the pres
sure on him to leave the Cabinet is growing
The .Hawaiian delegation started from New
York the 2d of Mny. sailing on tne Pavonia, to
attend the Czar's coronation, Secretary l'oor
declaring his parly undismayed by bombs or
rumors of bombs. The delegation designs !
return by the Isthmus of Suez. The prepara
tion for this famous coronation goes bravely on
the programme now being thai the Emperor and
Empress will reach Moscow on the 2ist of
May, the crowning to take place on the
27th. The festivities are t include eight
night grand balls, and are l be prolonged
until the 6th of June. The state entry into the
city of St. Petersburg Mill be made ou the 10th
of that month. The tight with Nihilism shows
no signs of abating however. Another trial is
to be held at Odessa previons to the coronation.
Twenty persons will be arraigned on the charge
of propagating Nihilistic ideas among the work
iugmen. Among the fifty suspects " arrested
last month were military officers, young lady
teachers, students, workmen aud soldiers. At
the trial at St. Petersburg all the prisoners were
convicted, six were condemned to death, two
to life-long servitude and the rest to terms of
imprisonment varying from fifteen to twenty
years. On the heels of this to read of anything
approaching festivity sounds grim and ghastly
enough, for instance, the repairiug of the in
signia of the crown .by the court jewellers. The
crown itself is valued at $600,000, and is adorn
ed with magnificent diamonds, fifty-four flaw
less pearls, and an extraordinary large ruby.
The sceptre is tipped with the famous OrlofT
diamond which, like the Koh-i-noor, came from
the treasury of the great Mogul. The OrlofT is
eight carats heavier than the Koh-i-noor.
The Irish continue rampant, the executions
for the Phoenix Park murderers do not seem to
intimidate the Fenians in the least. The English
Government have obtained information that the
enrolled members of the Fenian organization in
the United Kingdom number 150,000. and that
there are besides distinct off-shoots of Fenianism
such as the Vigilants and the Invincibles. There
are also secret sections Affiliated with the Amer
can dynamite party. This ''dynamite wing'
as it is called in America, conspiring against
England on foreign soil is awakening the live
liest interest. It is a sort of international extra
dition conundrum at which every one nmnses
himself by hazarding a guess. Mr. Bourke,
a Conservative in the IIouso of Com
mons, gave notice that he would question
the government as to whether any steps
had been taken by the authorities
at Washington relative to the conspiracies
against England alleged to have been organized
in America by members of the dynamite party.
Some people maintain that there is nothing in
the extraordinary treaty of 1S42 to warrant the
surrender by America of a dynamite conspirator
unless his explosion caused loss of life, and it
remains a question whether loss of life so
caused would be murder as contemplated by the
treaty. "Would the Secretary of State take upon
himself to decide that it wus ? Also the consid
eration of the matter will probably fall to the
undoubtedly Democratic Congress of 1SS5 where
sympathy with the Irish race would foredoom
the whole matter. Meantime France indulges
iu unchecked hilarity over the appeals which
the English are making to her as well as the
United States not to harbor the dynamite con
spirators. They recall the time when France
made a similar appeal to England and was met
with derision. The conspirators whom the
French wished given np threatened only the
life of one mau, Louis Napoleon, while the
Irish dynamite men seem to propose to blow
np whole cities and whelm innocent and guilty
in one red burial. America is in hot water also
on the score of the revolution iu Harti. an
insurrection of the Mulattoes who began their
movement with a force of 100 men well armed
with breech-loading rifles bought in Philadel
phia. The Government troops, who ware miser
ably armed and disciplined seem to have run
away at the first fire. The insurrectionist are
trying to organize a provisional government, a
so-called General'' liazelais at their head,
and the men and captain who transported them
are standing their trial in Philadelphia.
The lied Virgin, Luoise Michel has
been committed for trial at the next Paris
Assizes on a charge of inciting to riots
and has announced that she will conduct her
own defense. The papers have been amus
ingly agitated about an accident to the Queen's
knee, that happened l itsiu April and something
of the same spirit of fluukeyisrn is displayed in
the lengthy notices that have been given her old
servant John lirowii. recently dead. He was
kuowu throughout England ns the " Watch
Dog'' ou account of his devotion to the Queen,
and seems to have been thoroughly Scoth. He
began his service in the royal family as a gillie
in 1S49, aud was selected by the Prince Consort
to go with Her Majesty's carriage. He entered
ths service of the royal family permanently in

! Mr. Ei'iToa: Concluding from whnt appear
j ed in the columns of your contemporary of last
Saturday, that the season for execrable dog
; gerel and excrntiatiugly far-fetched rhyme has
, fairly set in, I rjost respectfully request that
. you grant me the necessary space in your
i paper in order that I may lay before yonr
readers a sample production from my Old
j Cremona,'' as I call my rhyming machine,
j Now, don't spring to your feet, sir, in that
' excited and indignant manner ! 1 dc cot pr
1 pose to desecrate the sanctity of your sauc
' turn by bringing into it anything which
i in the remotest degree resembles what I
read, or tried to read. No. sir; I am
not such a heartless artesian bore as all
1 thnt nor have I nnv linse rip&icns nnon the livoc
OP physical welfare of vour readers I think, sir, j
the man who run9 your contemporary's "Cre
mona " should be held to answer for an attempt
to spread lock-jaw among the reading commu
nity. I hare been wishing for some time to ad
dress a few lines to your talented correspondent,
Mrs. Negus and after a run of a couple of hours
or so, here is what my Cremona " has turned
Old Cactcs to Mrs. Xer.s.
Mia. N.. as a friend. I salute you.
You are one of the few people here
Who tipeak out in plain honest English,
When talking of those who act queer.
I have read with much gvMo your letters.
And hope t read more from your pen ;
Your udvant I hail as a blessing.
You ar doing more good than you i:e.
Don't pauie iu yo.sf praiseworthy eTorrs.
For all your idaas are sound ;
You are modest and choice in your langaig.
And ma 'am, every word weighs a pound I
Some have it that you are a male ma'am.
Cat I take the opposite view ; ,
And I wish that our town held a hundred.
Or more, of such woman as you.
I wish I could write prose like you mt'in, -Instead
of this poor creaky rhyme ;
With pride I could then hold your bonnet.
And tail in with von every time t
I have lived here some thirty-six years ma'am.
Oil and on, a a whaleman would say :
And though I'm not one of tbe chosen,
I dread not the Great Judgment day.
I try to be honest and upright,
I never press claims against the poor ;
My land is my own by square purchase
Some church folks can't say that, I'm sure.
I'm not foud'ofgiving out money,
Just to win'an encore from a crswd ;
I give when I can to the needy
True charity never talks loud.
We have too much hypocrisy here ma'am -
I'm a hypocrite too, so to speak ;
But I don't try tojioojwink ray neighbor.
liy proclaiming ' I'm not out this week."
Your fifth letter, ma'am, was a stunner.
Ostentation you rapped on the head;
And he who gives hundreds by jerks, ma'am.
With pleasure would hear you were dead.
I'm sick of the fuss these anointed
Make over the little they give ; '
How they rave when a paper won't print it
Snch"people""give soup in a sieve.
I don't go a cent on the teacher
Whose record abroad is nat bright ;
When such fellows enter my dwelling
I keep my young daughters in sight.
The Evangelist, too, I've no use for.
Were he Moody and Sanky's best brother.
Who could stand up in church and proclaim
That he basely went back on his mother?
I belii ve that repentance will save us.
When it comes to ns like second birth :
Hut I'm scary of all those repentant
Who preach for the treasures of earth.
Are you a tridow, ma'am? please don't get angry,
I have no designs for myself
I but fear that some Churchman may charm you
And lay your pen by on the shelf.'
Talk of the heathen Chinee, ma'am,
For dark ways and tricks that are vain
Our bald-headed ' Y'oung Man's " peculiar,
And cute, when there's something to gain.
The Temperance Cause, you will find ma'am
Is a sort of religious right bower
Which he cunningly slips from his sleeve, ma'am.
Whilst playing at Lucre and 2'oicer.
There are men in that Fort on the corner,
Who rack their brains early and late.
In hatching out plans for combining
And running their Church with our State.
But they may as well put up their shutters.
And keep what they have for their pains ;
It's absurd, ma'am, to think of their ruling.
For, between us, thy've not got the brains.
Were such creatures put into power ma'am,
. Old Blue Laws would soon be revived ;
They would give us a taste of John Calvin,
And Freedom and Peace be short-lived.
Gracious me I I must bid you adieu ma'am
And cease manufacturing verse ;
My name the old lady is calling, j

Y. M. C. A.
Ma. Editor. I have noticed of late a consid
erable number of articles and communications
in our papers, criticising and finding fault with
the Youug Meu's Christian Association on vari
ous points. Its conditions of membership, its
methods of work, its general spirit and in fact
pretty much everything connected with the asso
ciation and its management have come in for
their share of blame. Not onlv the iuilcment
and discretion of its leading members,' but even
their honestv and sincerity of purpose have
been publicly culled in question, and it ia more
than hinted in your colunns that they are a set
of hypocrites whose contributions towards the
new building have been inspi.e-d by intre?ted
and selfish motives. If the writers who indulge
in this line of remarks would give the matter a
reasonable amount of candid consideration, they
might possible come to see that the articles they
have written nnd published are not only con
trary to good taste and good feeling, but that
they show a lack of fitir mindeduess as well.
The facts as they present themselves to my
mind are simply these a number of persons,
members and friends of the association have put
their hands into their pockets to the tune of
some twenty thousand dollars, and have with
this sum erected a very handsome and commo
dious buildiug to be used for the benefit of the
community in the promotion of morality and
culture. This action, which to the ordinary,
unprejudiced understanding would seem to be
highly commenduble, bus been the means or at
any rate the occasion of calling out an abundant
crop of sneers and ill-natured remarks which
seem difficult to accouut for on anything credit
able to the understanding or henvt of those from
whom they proceed.
It is noticeable that all the growling seems to
proceed from tho3e who have giren neither
money or service of any kind to the enterprise
iu question. So far as appears, the persons
who have given outright the sum of twenty
thousand dollars, are well enough satisfied with
the use thnt is being made of their money. If
those who foot the bills do not complain, it
seems hardly reasonable for outsiders who give
nothing, to indulge in a course of public fault
finding. Neither can I learn that the critics
have done or propose doiug anything to supple
ment the work of the Association or to supply
the field lefi v;ie:int by reason of its alleged de
ficiencies. Talk is cheap. Let these parties who are
ready to tell tbe public all about how things
ought not to be done, now come to the front and
give us a practical illustration of that "more ex
cellent way" of which we h:ve thus fur seen
As for the conditions of membership of which
so much has been made, it should be re rae ru
be red that they are such as a majority of the
Association, at a time when the present restric
tion did not exist, after full notice
and discussion, decided to be , proper
aud best. The rule in question does not meet
my own approval, but I know it was made con
scienciously and iu good faith, and I believe iu
abiding loyally by the decision of the majority.
1 certainly can sre nothing in its existence to
call for or justify the attacks which have been
made upon the association. The right of every
voluntary association, receiving no public sub
sidy, to manage its affairs in its own way is
fundamental, and its members ought not to be
subjected to ill-natured criticism even if that
way should not be just such as some Jothers
might prefer. The above remarks will apply to
various other points connected with.th,e conduct
of the association, which have been made the
subjects of adverse comment. Tbe insinuation
that the donors to the building fund were actu
ated by selfish motives is entitled to no respect,
until the parties making such suggestions are
prepared to show us just what advantage was to
be gained by those who have given this large
sum of money, and just how it can be made to
pay them as a financial investment.
I note .n conclusion the charge that tbe Y. M.
C. A. Is trying to ' gobble " the books of the
Library Association or to swallow that organiza
tion in some way. This statement is emphati
cally denied by the officers of the first named
society, and I am assure 1 on the best of
authority that the officers of the kindred ( not
rival ) association attach no value whatever to
any such suggestions. Unless the parties who
Lave circulated and given publicity to such
charges are prepared to substantiate them by
some evidence teyond mere anonymous as",
sertion, they must be set down as impertinent
rneddleis and mischUf makers who are endeav
oring to breed distrust and bad feeling between
two organizations, who are both working for the
public good, and between whom there ought to
exist only harmony and good will. Being
member of both societies and believing myself
to be well-informed as to the spirit which pre
vails in the management of both. I feel that I
am in a position to confidently predict that all
such designs will fail. The Library Association
stood aside and waited until the Y. M. C A.
had their building finished and paid for, and now
are about to appeal to the generosity of the public
for the means wherewith to put their own enter
prise on a permanent basis. Their action in
this matter has shown magnanimity and pabhc
spirit, which it is confidently beli'eved will be
appreciated, and that the funds for both pur
poses will come to a large extent from the same
Mr. Eoiros, The pedagogues are getting
blows on all sides just now in the newspapers,
and in my humble opinion they richly deserve
them. I have formed this opinion from obser
vation. All workmen, it is not incorrect to say,
are generally judged according to the work they
produce, and none mote so than the teacher.
Mind is more plastic material to work upou than
matter. See how laborious is the operation of
the carpenter as he frames the houses, or guides
tbe machine as it turns out the toneue and
groove. Look at the, grimy face of the moulder
as he dares the flames of the ragiug furnace, and
see how he exudes from every pore as he turns
the molten metal into fantastic shapes. How
much less difficult than these is it to mould the
mind into shape, to make it retentive, to make
it grasp subtleties of human learning, aud. hold
them ever after. One r. the easiest subjects a
teacher has to deal with is lnguac:e, especially
thnt part which is called composition. The
difficulties vanish as rea.lily uu ler his lips as
the chips fly under the earpeuter's hand; and the
terse und grammatical sentence appears as
promptly from the manipulation of the former
as the beautiful table from the latter. But all are
not good workmen. Honolulu teachers are not
. good teachers, jadfjiug from their work. They
i must long ago have lost their .i-.-d They cm u
. not have accomplished much even in by-gone
; years, that is if they have tiained the newspaper
' writers of ths present day. Even ynu, sir, have
been neglected, sadly neglected. Would you
; mind sending the opening sentences of the
. editorial headed "Education " t' one of our
' city schools to be analysed and parse. I ? Some
pupils and other readers would like to know the
j antecedents of the words " this'' and it" in
; the second senteuce. Would you mind explaiu
: ing this phrase: " very erudite, but inapplicable
' treatises that have been copied ine.vl entto, "kaud
j what the whole of he paragraph preceding this
i has to do with what follows about the Teachers
Association. Is it a sound premise to take, that
because one meeting failed to form a quorum,
; that the Teachers' Association is a complete
; failure ? Do the four previous meetings, which
were well attended, count for nothing? Is it a
! correct inference that because teachers do not
I meet together in an association that is purely
! voluntary, that their work is performed less
enthusiastically or usefully ? I'm sure teachers
J would prefer you to make specific charges
: against them, than to slur the whole body with
I such general remarks as you have thrown so
j loosely together. I enclose my-card.

i On Friday afterneon, the 4th instant, the resi
1 dents of this " Sleepy Hillside" were aroused from
l their slumbers by the startling news that a man
j had committed suicide by cutting his throat. The
j man, whose name was " Dowd Ship Modena," was
; a laborer employed by Mr. W. H. Rickard, and a
j native of Bombay. It appeared that the deceased
! had for some time past shewn symptoms of in
sanity in various ways. An inquest was held on
u the following morning, when it was ascertained
'! that the deceased's head was almost severed from
his body, the bones of the neck being cut through
with a cane -knife. Dr. Greenfield examined the
corpse, and had not much difficulty in coming to
the conclusion that life was extinct. The verdict
of the jury was, " Died by his own hand." The
following reasons have been surmised as the cause
of the rash act, viz.: The possession of such a
name as the man had, and also the fact of his being
the sole proprietor of some sixteen cents. "Sic
transit indite gloria."
