The Heaviest Kona for the
In our issue of Saturday last, we made a
brief allusion to the southerly gale that was
blowing at the time we went to press, after
which it culminated In the heaviest
storm that has vinited these Islands nince
1SC9. Throughout Friday night and Satur
day morninsf, it was terrific. Tlie water In
the harbor ami al-o along tba weather coast
rwe considerably above the highest mean
tide an J the consequences are of a mot dis-
atrout nature. The collapso of the shed
known aa the "Likelike hhed" was the first
indication of the strength of the gale. Thin
vm shortly followed by the washing away
of the lower verandah of His Majesty's
boathouHc, which placed the entire struc
ture In Jeopardy, but fortunately at the
eleventh hour, it still stands. The danger
wasso imminent lhat all the boat", and
also the furniture were removed to terra
firrnn with the utmost expedition. Further
to the eastward, the gale made Its mark at
Kakaako. The jetty at the Immigration
Depot was washed clean away. The sand
was driven up against the gateway leading
to the premises, to such an extent that in
gress or egress was impossible. The Branch
Hospital was flooded and some of thf dom
iciles had to be vacated in consequence.
From thence to Diamond Head, the effects
cf the gale and sea are now to be seen.
Fences were blown -down, trees and tele
phone poles rooted up whilst several light
structures aud native dwelling places were
completely obliterated. There is not a fence
standing that was formerly erected at the
ordinary limit of high watermark. At Wai
kiki the damage may be said to be Irrepar
able. Hundreds of young trees that have
been planted during the past two or three
years, have been uprooted and demolished.
Karly yesterday morning, telephonic com
munication with Waikiki, and also with
Walanae and Waialua was found to have
been cut off. But the most serious damage
of all is along th- Esplanade and in the
rear of the Pacific- Mail Steamship Compa
ny's wharf. The ground has been literally
excavated, and holesare apparent all along
the wharves. In two or three Instances,
water pipes were broken and consequently
the water was running to waste In several
Probably the most remarkable feature in
connection with the gale, was the advent
of several birds known aa the "man-of-war"
or "frigate bird " (atager aqulla). One of
thid species was shot at Waikiki, by Mr.
Dimond, Jr., and was on exhibition at the
store of Messrs. Robertson & Co. on Satur
day afternoon. It measured six feet two
Indies from tip to tip. This class cf bird Is
rarely seen around the Hawaiian Islands.
It is described in Wood's Pictorial Natural
History as having " long bright black fea
thers aud is in great request at the Society
Islands. The nest of the Frigate bird Is
sometimes built upon trees and bushes
where the Tow shores afford no cliffs, but
its usual locality for breeding is In the sum
mit of some rocky cULT. The expanse of the
wings is usually eight feet."
The gale broke up on Sunday morning, but
the rain continued to fall in torrents all
through the day. At about three o'clock on
Sunday morning, the keeper of the light
house on the reef, Mr. Williams, deemed it
unsafe to remain at his post, aud thinking
discretion the better part of valor, he took
to his boat and rowed ashore. During his
occupancy of the position of lightkeeper,
since 1S70, this is the first time that he felt
compelled to seek refuge on shore. .
It is impossible, at present, to estimate
the total amount of damage done. The
non-arrival of the regular coasting steam
ers aud schooners indicate that the gale
has extended over the whole group.and we
shall no doubt learn of many casualties.
The S. S. Mariposa, after a detention of
twenty-four hours put to sea at noon on
Sunday and it is hoped that she would soon
run clear of th'e prevailing bad weather.
The efforts of the telephone company are
praiseworthy in the highest degree, for no
sooner was It ascertained that communica
tion was interrupted in different parts,than
they dispatched men and material to effect
the necessary repairs.
The S. S. Kinau touched at Niulii on her
way from Hilo; and a few passengers em
barked under great difficulties. The ship
ment of cargo was impossible. From thence
to Honolulu she merely looked at the usual
ports of call, and come en to Honolulu, ar
riving safely on Saturday morning last.
The Kilauea Uou and Iwalani did not
arrive until Monday, the former being due
on Saturday and the latter on Sunday.
The schooner Waimalu returned from
Kauai on Sunday, having being unable to
approach the Island.
Captain and Mrs. Luce had a miraculous
escape from being injured by the falling of
some heavy plaster at their residence
'Little Britain.' Had they been in the
sitting room at the time of the accident, as
is their custom at the hour it occurred, the
result might have been of a lamentable na
ture, but strange to say, they prolonged
their stay in the dining-room and thus
avoided the danger.
Surely 1883 has been a memorable year
In the annals of Hawaiian history, but let
us hope that the worst has past.

An Appeal to the Charitable.
There are now about one thouxaud lepers on Mo
lokai, and at the hospital near this eitr ; and it
has been proposed that an effort lie made to provide
for them some Hnitable holiday testimonial, unit
ing perhaps a feaxt with such bodily comforts as
they will appreciate and enjoy most, so as to enable
them to share in a small way, the pleasures of the
These unfortunate people who have been torn
from their homes and friend- by the stern author
ity of the law, are now shut out from all inter
course with the rest of the nation, and through no
fault ef their own, are deprived of the freedom and
pleasures which their countrymen enjoy in order
that that the spread of the most loathsome diseAse
known may be checked. .
While we are enjoying the festivities, pleasures
and comforts of the holiday season, in it too much
to aak the public to contribute from their abund
ance, that these poor lepers may share in these
comforts aud - pleasures, and know that they are
not forgotten by more favored countrymen.
Of the total number of lepers in the charge of
the Government About two hundred Are children
from one to fifteen years of age; three hundred
women and five hundred men. - To provide even a
small gift for every one is impracticable; but a tri
fling token in the way of toya and sweets for tho
children; dresses And useful Articles of wear for
tho women ; with perhaps a simple native luau
feast for the whole crowd, will be All that can be
Among the Articles that may be contributed are
For the children, clothing, toys, pictures, can
dies, and sweet cakes put up in boxes, etc.
For the women,' articles of clothing, warm dress
es, calico dresses or holukns, pieces of calico cloth
for making dresses, handkerchiefs, etc.
For the boys And men, cheap pocket knives, tools
hatchets, saws, clothing of any kind, etc.
It is not the intention of the undersigned to can
vass the city, soliciting contributions; but they
leave it to the generosity of the public to give
whatever they will, for An object which is seldom
presented to the public. All articles contributed
for the lepers should be sent before Saturday the
22nd inst, to J. T. Waterhouse's storef Queen st.,
where they will be packed and forwarded to M.0I0
kai by first opportunity.
Those who prefer to contribute money for this
object may hand their- offerings to either of tho
undersigned, or At the Postoflico window, and the
same will be expended in the purchase of supplies
as Indicated above, or to pay the expenses of the
feast to be given to the lepers here and on Molo

Kapule, cliArged with larceny was again remand
ed until the 18th instant (to-day).
Lee Tai And On Tai, charged with having opium
in poebession, entered a plea of not guilty. Officer
Mehrtens tt stifled to going to a house At Waikiki
where the first defendant lives, and finding opium
there. Officer Akiona corroborated what Mehrtens
had stated. Lee Tai denied that the opium was his
property, though it was found in his room. On Tai
said he was there collecting a debt. He lives some
distance from the place, and furthermore he never
smokes opium. Lee Tai was found not guilty and
discharged. On Tai found guilty and sentenced to
one month's imprisonment At hard labor And fined
$50. Appeal noted to Supreme Court. Mr. J. M.
Davidson Appeared for the defendants.

Speed on Railways-
"It isn't because our engines can't doit
that the railroad trains In this country do
not run as fast as they do in other coun
tries," an engineer on the New York Cen
tral said to a reporter. He had been shown
a published statement that the time made
in the United -States was very slow com
pared to the schedule published abroad,
particularly on the English lines. When
there is need of it," the engineer continued
"we prove the capacity of our locomotives
and road bed to increase the speed to the
highest limit. But safety is preferred here
to reckless speed. There are many of us
who would be glad to send our machines
along at the rate of fifty miles an hour if
the time table would allow it and laugh at
the little danger, but the rules are strict."
In a compilation of the relative speed of
the fastest trains in the world, it is found
that the limited express on the New York
Central, running at about 40 miles an hour
(letween New York and Albany), ranks
fourteenth. The regular trains on the same
ruilroad, which average about 35 miles an
hour, are at the foot of the list. What is
known as the Flying Dutchman," run
ning from London to Bristol, is the train
which travels more rapidly than any other
in the world. It completes a distance of
11S miles, making no stops, in two hottrs,
making an average of 59 miles an hour. A
train which runs between Paddingten and
Swindon, England, takes second place. The
distance is 77 miles, the time one heur and
twenty-seven minutes, and stops none, and
average speed 53 miles. Germany is also
progressive in this matter. On the railroad
between Berlin and Hanover, a train is run
which makes the 152 miles in three hours
aud forty-eight minutes, keeping up an av
erage of over 51 miles an hour.
Tiie traiu. from London to Peter bo 10
conies next, covering 71 miles in 1 hour 29
Cuinutes. This is on a average of 51 miles.
Canada is ahead of the United States as far

concerned, a traiu ou the Canada Pacific,
from Coteau 'to Ottawa, .making 78 4-10
miles iti 1 hour 34 minutes, or 50 miles an
hour, including three steps. . The Pennsyl
vania Railroad runs the fastest train in this
country, between Jersey City and Philadel
phia, a distance of 90 miles. It makes one
stop, and reaches its destination in 1 hour
52 minute?. The average per hour is 43 3-10
miles. Other trains are as follows: Eng

The Philosophy of Game Preserving;
With November comes the sportsman's
season, for on the 1st the laws permit the
shooting of game and fowl in all States of
the Union. But there is a great difference
In the way in which the privilege is exer
cised by the sportsman or by the pot hun
ter, uud an equivalent difference in the re
gions vfhich are respectively tho Paradise
ot either. As to spert, there can be no
greater difference than is found in the re
gions most accessible from this city East
ern New Jersey aud the west end of Long
Island. The reason for this is that one sec
tion is preserved aud the other is not.
Nothing can more clearly illustrate the
two systems preserving and uon-preserv-ing
than the two section named. It lias
been a popular cry to denounce those who
reserve to themselves localities whereat
they can at convenient seasons enjoy the
sports incidental to outdoor life. It is
charming to listen to the theory of free in
stitutions, free shooting and free angling,
aud a land where those heterogenous aga
ries of civilization, Tom, Dick and Harry,
cat) roam loose with unlicensed guns. But
nevertheless all this also means promiscu
ous trespassing, indiscriminate and illegal
shooting and fishing also no quail, par
tridges, rabbits or fish.
As the matter stands to-day, the man
who wants game on his table must cither
pay something directly or indirectly to
shoot it, or he must take his purse aud go to
the markets. Ou Long Island, there is an
abundance of trout and birds, because the
principal o'f protection has been governed by
good comuiou sense. In the section referred
to in New Jersey, on the other hand, where
the go-as-you-please theory has been in
vogue, field sjiorts are at such a low ebb as
to hardly deserve the name, and this is the
more to be wondered at when It is known
that there is no section iu the United States
better adapted by nature as a great nursery
for fowl aud fish than that which has been,
ruthlessly laid barren. .
If every large farm of from two to five
hundred acres were preserved the outside
community would be better off. It is im
possible to keep all the wild birds planted
within boundary lines. Quail, grouse, rab
bits, and the like cannot be controlled by
line fences, bnt will scatter over the coun
try for miles around. From the lay of the
land no one man can control one whole
stream to fish. The more fishes and birds
the wealthy owner sees fit to distribute in
his waters and 0:1 his land the better pick
ing there will be for the public along the
edges. Instead of opposiug and harrassing
the man who is generous enough to stock a
section, the whole countryside would do
well to hail the era which is Just dawning
on us as a permanent benefit iu the Inocu
lation of new blood, which in more ays
than one will result ta the common good of
the community. New York Herald.
The result of a recent Chess Tournament (says
the Jewish Chronicle) was a veritable triumph
for Jewish chess players. Out of the fourteen
engaged in the chief or "master" tournament,
no less than six were Jews. Anl in the prize
lists, the first prize was taken by a Jew, Zuker
tort, and the second prize was likewise adjudged
to Another Jew, Steinitz. hitherto the Prince of
chess players. Besides these, another Jew, Eng.
lisch secured the-fifth prize, and a lourth, Ros
enthal, obtained the prize allotted to the 00m
petitos who made tbe best score against the
prizewiuuers. Out of the eight prizes given
no less than onehalf were won by Jews. The
success of Zukertort and Steinitz, clearly indi
cate that there must be something in the Jewish
intellect peculiarly adapted to the game. The
mathematical bent of niirfj, the patience, perse
verenr, and daring, and the peculiar quality
known as long-headedness, are all properties of
the Jewish nature, which are equally valuable
for business or oh ess. From tbe times of the
Talmud, Jews have been pre-eminent at games
similar to chess, and in modern times Jews have
counted several of tho best players for several
generations. The tale of the Jew who became a
Pope, charmingly translated from the Midrash
for the Society of Hebrew Literature by a master
of English, contains a reference to Jewish skill
in chess. And yet Mendelssohn said, "for a
game, it is too serious, for study it is too much
American Fishing Methods in England.
. The success of the I. Fisheries Exhi
bition has been very great, uud after all the ex
penses are paid, a very handsome sum will
remain in the hands of the treasurer. Mr.
Birkbeck. who has been distinguished as one of
the originators of the exhibition and Chairman
of the Working Committee, has proposed that a
certain amount of this surplus shall be ex
pended in a manner which is not only highly
flattering to the United States, but which must
prove beneficial to the English fisheries. Eng
lish fishermen are not acquainted with the ad
vantages to be derived from the use of the purse
seine. There having been shown in fullest de
tail ut London a model of this method of fish
ing, with vessel, boats and net, Mr. Birkbeck
proposes that a smack shall be built at Glouces
ter, Mass., after a special design by Captain J.
W. Collins, and, fully equipped with the neces
sary fishing gear, proceed to England, prosecute
fishing in English waters, and having on board
a number of English fishermen, that the exact
method of purse-seining shall be taught them.
The cost of an experiment of this kind would
not be very great, and far below what the prob
able gain would be. An English authority,
commenting on the matter, strongly urges that
this plau be carried out. In regard to the
etiiciency of the various members of the Ameri
can Commisstou at the Fish Exhibition, aud
especially Captain Collins and his acquaintance
with the whole subject of deep-sea fishing, the
following is written: "Such is the man aur
practical cousins across the Atlantic have put
on a public commission, his sole recommenda
tion being that he is thoroughly fittted for his
post. In England we should have given the
post to a Government clerk or ex-private secre
tary, who had established a claim upon, some
minister, a troublesome member of Parliament,
or, perhaps, a younger son.' " From the list
of awards it may be seen in what large propor
tion medals and "hoaorable mention'' were
given to the United States. Manufacturers
The Emperor of Germany, at the reception of
the President auJ. Vice-President of the lower
house of the Prussian Diet, expressed his con
fidence that the peace of Europe will be main-
tained. He referred in that connection to the
good relations of Germany and Russia.
It is rumored that 10,000 men will be mobil
ized iu France immediately for China, and that
General Capeuou, Minister of War, is negotiat
ing for the service of ten great transports, with
which to forward the troops to their destination.
