LOCAL & GENERAL.
It is anuounceJ thi. morning tliat Hou. Paul
Neumann baa joined the Ministry in the capacity
of Attorney-General. Mr. Neumann, Profoasor
Alexander, Hon. Jnniu Kaae, and Messrs. Sanuu l
Parker and E. K. Lilikalani Lave U-en called l.y
HU Majesty to serve as Privy Councillors.
Stock of various and doubtful breeds is often
imported from the Coast, and at the same time
some Tery good blood i introduced here. Mr.
J. K. Porter Laa at bis stable on King street, the
best lot of carriage and saddle horses that tvere
ever imported. His " Mazeppa" ami his Joe
Dake" are perfect creatures of their kind.
The O. P. M. B. has a danger aignal on exhibi
tion every night. It is astonishing the attraction
it ha for the public after sundown, judging by the
lumbers who flockTthither to ascertain the ebject
of this prominent red light. Mr. Lederer thor
oughly understands the art of advertising himself
and his goods.
Mr. Hamilton Johnson, whi represent the firm
of Messrs. J. H, Congdon X Co. of San Francisco
has always on hand, at the premises on Queen
streot, a large aad varied assortment cf provisions
of the very best quality. He also is prepared to
furnish feed of every description .for horses and
The commnnication of Aole Hoki,'' appears
not to have had the desired effect of keeping
mulea out of the omnibus trade. A correspond
ent itatea that he prefers a hack with a ping"
in it, to an omnibus with a mule iu front.
A charter of incorporation has been accepted by
the Punloa Sheep and Stock Ranch Company of
which Mr. Trancis Spencer has been elected Presi
dent; Mr. Geo. W. Macforlane, Vice-President;
Kr. Henry R. Macfarlane, Treasurer; and Mr. John
Feobbins, Secretary and Auditor.
Holiday goods of every descriptian can be found
at Messrs. Hollister A Co.'s Fort and Nuuanu
i tree U stores.
To-day is the last day on which taxes can be paid
without an additional 10 p.-r cent being added
His Majesty entertained Mr. Hoffnung, Mr. Adee
and a select party of guests at dinner last evening.
Ko business before the Police Magistrate on Sat
urday. One drunkard forfeited $6 bail.
Or. Sunday night an anonymous note addressed
to Mr. Mehrtens was dropped by some person un
known on the dc-k in the lower room of the Station
House. That officer was off duty at tke time and
Len he ultimately received the document he found
it to contain an intimation that if he would look
in a certain place in the office of the Pacific Com
mkrcial AiMEUTisr.u he would find the 6tolen re
port of the Chief f .he Mounted Police. About 9
a. m. yesterday fr. Mehrtens, accompanied by a
policeman, presented the anonymous letter to the
manager of the Pacific Commercial Advertises
who immediately understood the little game of the
sneak-thief who stole the document, and led Offi
cer Mehrtens to the indicated spot, where, sure
enough the document was found. The public know
exactly what kind of a place the Advertiser office
is and how impossible it is to prevent uninvited
entrance to it during the quiet hour cf night, es
pecially in the case of old employees of that estab-
I hshment. The Attorney-General's office has been
carefully guarded to prevent a surreptitious return
I of the stolen document, and in desperation the
, easily accessible premises of this Journal were
c-hoseu for the purpose. This choice and the
f,.un1ctic folJv of teHins the police where to find the
document add two more meshes to the net which
is fast closiii'j round the perpetrator of the theft.

A concert was given on Wednesday evoning, com
mencing at half past seven o'clock, i i the Waikiki
Church in aid of Kawaiahao Church. Their Royal
Highnesses Princess Liliuokalani and Frincess
Like-like took an active part in promoting
the furtherance of this good object, and both of
these good ladies also took part in. carrying
out the programme. Tho Misses Clcghorn and
other young ladies also assisted. A drive to
Waikiki on a beantiful moonlight night is of itself
a treat, which was greatly enhanced, by the
antic-iiiuti.m f hearing good vot-al and instru
1 mental music on arrival there.
j The residents on Iwilei, makai of the Oahu gaol
i have petitioned the Government for tho making
j of a road, to run from the prison to Iwilei. In or
j ih r to further their object the owners ol propcrty
on either side the road have libel ally oft'ered to

i About half-past three o'clock last Tuesday after

i na3ty accident. One of the sailors carelessly let
I Co of a capstan bar that was connected with the
! windlass whilst iu motion. It struck Captain King
on the head and knocked him down inflicting a
gash on his forehead. Dr. Hagan was sent for and
he sewed up the wound. The steamer was dolayed
a quarter of an hour in consequence of the acci

his resignation as a member of the Union, waa

quoting leading scientists who favor the move

wiezc for his zeal in assisting to organise the Un

drawn from the Union. The chairman on tender
ing the vote, took occasion to remark "that cer
tain newspapers had studied how they could most
effectually traduce Mr. Danielwiezc's character,
and doubtless through him the organization he
represented. Such conduct did not tend to in
spire respect for such papers, notably the Saturday
Press and the Bulletin. The aim and object of the
Union had been so misrepresented by the absurd
reports of the meetings published in the Bulletin

Charles Osborne as unsatisfactory.
The court is further of opinion that the remark
made by tho Captain in the official log of the 12th

uncalled for and utterly unjustifiable, and that no
such entry should have been made. The charge

without asking for bids- Dufendant said that he

A very complete set of maps of the entire city of
Honolulu extending from Waikiki to the "Old
House at Home" on the Ewa road and from the
harbor to Kapena falls, has just been completed
by the gentlemen of the Survey Department under
the immediate superintendency of the Surveyor
General. These maps have been made by order of
the Minister of the Interior for the use of the
Water Works Department to which they will be of
great value and assistance. They will indeed be
of Tery general usefulness, and are a credit to the
department in which they have been prepared.
They show all the water pipes of the city, their
size and dimensiri s, the hydrants and gates and
levels above mean tide, the same being represented
by cemventional colors and signs. The roads,
fences; and principal buildings have been laid
down with the greatest care and accuracy," and the
position of every part of the town has been calcu
lated by ordinates with regard to the -'Trig" sig
nal on Punchbowl, so that any particular point of
the town may be described as being so much dis
tance North, South, East or West, as the case may
be from the given point. This feature in the maps
is represented by Meridional and Latitudinal lines
for every 500 feet of space. To enable Professor Al
exander to complete this work in as short a time
as it was possible, all the rv.."..ble talent of the
Department has been broug..; ... :..-ar upon it, all
other surveying work has for the time, been laid
aside; but as the work is now completed, the regu
lar work of the oflico will be re-commenced and
the gentlemen of the Department will again take
the field. The work done has partaken more of
that of a civil engineer, and it speaks well for the
Department that it can be equal to such occa
sions. '"A sudden death occurred last Sunday morning on
board the steamship Mariposa, shortly after she
arrived alongside the wbarf. The deceased was
named W. P. D. Cotte, aged about 33 years, and a
native of New York. He was an able seaman ou
board the vessel. On the passage down he was
attacked with a severe hemorrhage, which was
stoppetl by the doctor of the vessel in the usual
way. An examination of the deceased showed
plainly that the flow o blood was from the
stomach and not from the lungs. Yesterday
morning he had another similar attack, which
proved fatal, the man evidently dying in great
agony. Captain Howard, as is customary in such
case, duly notified the Coroner of the sad occur
rence, and suggested that a post-mortem examina
tion be held. He was informed that it was un
necessary, whereupon the Captain gave orders for
the funeral. The. deceased was buried at 4 p. r.
last Sunday, Dr. Damon officiating at the ceremony.
The flags were displayed at half-mast on board the
Mariposa and brig W. G. Irwin throughout t:ie
day, and on the return of the funeral party tluy
were again mastheaded.

Regarding the Waiheo f urnanee, to which we re

the economy and completeness with which it per

shower, when the trash was exposed lo the rain as
it came from the rollers and was conveyed np the
steep carrier from which it was dnmped, soaking
wet, as wo may say, at !!h- mouth of the furnace
below, and almost immediately used as fuel, with
out the least expenditure of labor lor handling
or drying lietweeu the rollers and the furnaces. If
this is not economical, what is it ? As a fuel, he

ts purpose admirally, no other fuel being used ex

one, as everyone wno itnows oomuti inac-

terous weather prevented many persons from
being present who had intended to be there, but
the gathering was a gay and crowded one, and
one of the merriest dances of the season and was

the washing away of the landing at the Immi

night, the wharf property showed signs of col

pying the home market. It is the colonies
to which English manufacturers look, and
whereas once they exported not five per
cent, of their wares, the proportion is now
fifty per cent. Cheapness has gained the
day. The Swiss and American can beat
Englishmen iu price, and do. They turn
out as good a watch as most people cars for
at a cost which puts English competition
nowhere. The American learned the se
cret of organization and the use of machin
ery, which the English cannet or will not
learn. Here things go on much as they did
a hundred years ago, save that the move
ments oi a great part of the cheaper English
watches are simply imported from abroad.
A dozen trades contribute to the making of
a single watch, carried on under different
roofs by separate firms, often at a long dis
tance from each other. In America, as you
know, they have been combined, and to
this combination, with the added advant
age of machinery aud the mathematically
accurate production of precisely similar
parts of innumerable watches, is due the
surprising ftrct that a single American firm
now turns out annually as many watches as
H the English makers together 20,000.
The Swiss are said to make the enormous
number of 3,500,000. France produces over
half a million ninety percent, of them
from Besancon. So far, if we leave Eng
land behind, we are very far indeed from
driving Switzerland and France out of the
world's markets, as sanguine Americans
not many years ago predicted we soon
should. The Swiss are said to make now a
milliou watches more annually than they
did five years ago. The French business
has grown tenfold within thirty years. But
the English are net idle, and, on the whole,
ot despondent, although the Times thinks
watchmaking, as a great Industry, doomed.
They are beginning to use machinery, and
otherwise modernizing the habits of the
trade. And they still pride themselves on
being able to produce, if not the cheapest or
the most showy, the best and most durable,
timekeepers in the world. The best Eng
lish watches are still sought, for even
Americans are known to prefer them.
''Manufacturers in Switzerland and the
United States boast that they can make as
good If they please. At all events," ob
serves this author, with humor, ''it does
not often please them." And, putting pa
triotism aside, I suppose it is doubtful
whether any watch is superior, on the
whole, to the best of the English, if you
care to pay the price demanded.
Secretary Frcliughuyscn las directed the at
tention cf the Chinese Minister to the coin
plainjts made by Senator J. F. Miller in his re
cent letter to the Slate Department, asking that
the Chinese authorities at Canton shall not ahip
laborers to the United States with certificates
as merchants, students, etc. Senator Miller
suggested that the American Consuls at Chi
nese ports be directed to vise the certificates of
Chinese people proposing to sail to America
before their departure, thus guarding against
evasions of the law. The Chinese MinUter Las
called the attention of his Government to the
matter, and advised that Senator Miller's sug
gestions be adopted. A reply is expected soon.
