la view of the impending war between France
and China, the following atatistics, clipped from a
reliable source will tend to show who is most inter
ested in the foreign trade with China. " China's
foreign trade for 1332 was SICO.OOO.OOO, of which
England hare was $58,220,000, or, if we add to
this the Talue of the trade with Hongkong, India,
the Australian and other British colonies, the to
tal British trade comes to $127,620,000 quite three
fourths of the whole trade of China. The United
States comes next in order.with a trade of $16,611
000, while the whole of coatinental Europe, Russia
excepted, is put down for only $15,900,000. Rus
sia's trade with China amounted to about one
fourth of the last-mentioned sum. As to the ship
ping, of the 17,313,852 tons which entered and
cleared the various ports in 1882 there were under
the British flag as many as 10,814, 7i)9 tons while
nly 172.371 were French. The Chinese themselves
had a total tonnage of ships and junks of 15,589,
969 tons. Tbns it appears 'ays ihe Baltimore Sun,
that if France has little to an by war with China
the British Empire has much to lose."

The U. S. S. Alert arrived on Thursday, 23 days
from Saa Francisco. Daring the passage, she
experienced very rough weather. The bonnet of
the circulating pun.p was broken, to repair which
vrill cause a detentkn of the vessel in this port of
about three weeks. The Alert is a vessel of 541
tons and has 4 guns, one 11 inch 1C6 pounder,
smooth bore, mtizzle loading; two 9 inch 90
pounr'era ditto ; and one 5 inch SO pounder,
rifled breech loadtr. She carries 143 men and the
following is a list of her officers :

. The new international money order forms which
have been lithographed in San Francisco, to tlie
design of the Postmaster General are unique in
character and have a handsome aj peaiauoe. The
bamboo is used for the border. Ou the left bairn
side two circular places arc left for the stamps of
the sending and receiving oftices and between thi-ur
is the Hawaiian coat-of-arnis. This part of the
design is livided from the rest of the order by a
pretty design of scroll work aud the picture of a
cocoanut palm. The name of the payee is not en
tired in the order which merely says, " pay tie
tierson named in my letter of advice of this num
ber ami date," etc. There are two butts tu
order one ls-ing for record, and the other tv be
sent as a letter of advice. On the riv;ht hand of
the order is an ingenious devise for check upi n
fraud or error. The various denominations of
orders to be issued appear in a column with the
fees payable on them in a corresponding column.
When the order is issued it is punched through the
figure in tho first column representing the amount
for which it is made out. The whole design reflects
much credit on all concerned in its production.
On Thnrrday, an allusion was made to the im
proved postal arrangements. There is room for still
further improvements, The oftice closes two hours
before the sailing of the steamer. A " lato letter
bag" is also kept open for the receipt of letters
bearing an extra five cent stamp. The accommo
dation could Ihj still further increased by an
arrangement so that correspondence could be post
ed on board the steamer with a late fee, say of ten
cent., up to tho time of the steamer's departure.
The idea is suggested by tho frequent delays of
steamers after the advertised time of sailing. This,
of course, does not apply to the Oceanic Co's. line
of steamers, where punctuality is the invariable
rule, but in the case of the P. M. S. S. Co's. boats,
it is next to an impossibility to fix the exact min
ute they will sail, and it is often one or two hours
after the stated time.
The Kev. H. F. E. Whalley and tho Rev. W. A.
Swan have successfully passed their examination
for the priesthood. The solemn, bnt nevertheless,
interesting ceremony of ordination will take place
at St. Andrews Cathedral Sunday morning. .The
services will begin with a sermon by the Rev. Geo.
Wallace. The Ordination Service will follow, after
which the Holy Communion will be administered.
The Rev. Bishop Willis will preach the evening
service. On Christmas day there will be Holy
Communion at 6:30 a. m., in Hawaiian, and at 7:30
a. M. in English. At the mid-day service there will
also be Holv Communion. Evening service at 7:30
Following a custom which appears to be grow
ing common in other countries, the Postmaster
General has had a Christmas card prepared by
which to convey the compliments of the season to
the various head offices with which he is in corres
pondence in different parts of the world. The de
sign, which was drawn and lithographed in San
Francisco, is pretty and chaste, and includes a view
of the Honolulu Post Oftice which makes a very
good appearance. There are over a hundred offices
to whom this Christmas greeting from the Hawaii
an Postal Administration will go.
During the week we have been besieged with
complainants, who set forth in strong terms their
opinion of tho rotten condition of Merchant, Fort,
Bcretania. School, and many other streets, too numer
ous to mention, as the Orphan" would say, and on
making a tiersonal inspection, it was found that
the complaints were well founded. If tho Press
could in any way help tho Road Supervisor, it
would willingly do so, but the services teudered
for several yeari" part in pointing out the holes
aud quagmires, have been treated with silent
By the hand of a youth who came up in the Ha
zard. His Majesty the King received a letter from
Tclaulu. tLe sovereign chief of Fukaofo, conveying
hi:t aloha (or alofa as it is pronounced in his lan
guage) and his wishes that God may prosper King
Kalakaua aud his people. Fakaofo, otherwise
known as Bowditch Island, is the most southern of
Tokclau, or Union Group, which lie north of the
Samoan Islands. Its latitude and longitude are
approximately 9 , 30 S. aud 171s , 30 W.
The case of the German laborers was again
brought before tho Chief Justice on Tuesday last. It
apiaring to His Honor, on the return of the Dis
trict Justice of Kc'oa, that the case before hini was
widely different from that alleged in the petition,
the Court decided that a writ ought not to issue
on the petitiou. The summons not being in the
name of tho King, there was no writ, and conse
quently the defendants were not properly before
Oysters are said to be in season when there is an

will be found at Levey's not on Queen street, but
on Fort. Don't forget.

The Workinginen's Union held their regular
weekly meeting on Tuesday evening, 13th instant.
One new member was elected. The Executive

out of Court, as an appeal had not been perfected

The Employment Committee reported the labor
market in a deplorable condition. No work and
fifty applicants for a job. A vote of thanks was
passed to Mr. Gartenberg for the use of his hall.
He was a friend in need. The Union were left out
in the cold, when friend Gartenberg gave them
shelter. Resolved, also, that the thanks of the
Union are due Messrs. Hebbard & Ashley for gra
tuitously doing express work for their former ward,
tho distressed women and children. A vote of
similar nature was also unanimously accorded to
Messrs. S. M. Carter & Co. The meeting desired to
assure Mrs. Jarrett of their gratitude for her kind
ness in donating a splendid lamp and reporters'
Mr. Ward asked if it was true that the German
residents offered to take full charge of the German
women and children and pay all liabilities incurred
by the .Union, aud is it trne that this Union refused
to accent tln?ir offer? Mr. Kohm replied that as a
citizen and German resident, he refused, at the
time stated, but not on behalf of the Union. The
Chairman explained that the Committee appointed
to co-operate with the German residents did noth
ing. They saw from what they judged to be the
hostile attitude of the German residents, that it
would be useless to call upon them. Mr. Ward
proposed that the nomination and election of offi
cers be postponed until the 26th December, in or
der that a full meeting might be called for the
pin-pose. Seconded and carried. Remarks for the
good of the order were made by Mr. Crowley, who
said he felt desirous of seeing evening classes star
ted, so that the vonth f the city could obtain in
structions in drawing and mechanism aud would
recommend mechanics to attend the Y. M. C. A.
drawing class. He thought that gentlemen who
devoted his time gratuitously for the purpose of
imparting such scientific instruction, should be en
couraged, and they also deserved the thanks of all
mechanics. Mr. C'avenagh agreed with Mr. Ciow-
lcy, but thought that the Union was capable of
giving all the necessasy instructions in their own
hall. He mentioned Mr. Kohm as a competent
person to give drawing lessons. Mr. Sherman and
others could teach tho native language. Books
keeping could also bo taught. By this means a
healthy rivalry n ight bo established between tins
hall and the Y. M. C. A. hall. Or this Union might
be classed as a valuablu auxiliary in the matter of

A meeting of the Honolulu Sailor's Home
Society was held on Thursday last. is an
institution that has been somewhat neglected of
late, that is to say, the Trustts have apparently
not paid that amount of attention to the institu
tion that it deserves. The Rev. S. M. Damon makes
his daily tails there, and he knows fully well what
is wanted, but without the aid of tho Trustees it
cannot be carried out. The library is a most im
portant branch of the institution, but since the
removal of the Y. M. C. A. to their new building
on Hotel street, the library of the Sailors' Homo
has been somewhat neglected. It must bo obvious
to all who take an interest in the sailor's welfare,
that a leading reem is a necessity and more partic
ularly in the lower part of the town. The Sailors'
Home libiaiy supplies, or ought to do, all that is
wanted in that respect, and should, therefore, be
maintained under any circumstances.
A lengthy meeting of the Privy Council was held
on Tuesday last. The time of the meeting was almost
wholly occupied with a discussion on the currency
question, which ended in the passing of the resolu
tion which is announced in our "by authority"
column this morning. This was passed by a ma
jority of 29 to 1, one member not voting, A reso
lution, testifying the respect of the numbers of
Council towards the late Hon. J. Moanauli, who
was a Privy Councillor, was then passed. The
resolution characterized Mr. Moanauli as a highly
esteemed member of the Council and a patriotic
subject. A copy of it was ordered to be sent to the
widow of the deceased, and it was resolved that
the members . of the Privy Council should wear
crape on the left arm for fourteen days from date,
in token of respect to his memory.
Bill-sticking is a vocation that the operator
should know something about before engaging in
it. In this town, it ia placed in the hands of any
inexperienced person who can be found to under
take tho work. On Tuesday last, a man engaged to
post a flaring bill iu two colors, red ani blue, ex
hibited his ignorance by asking a passer-by, wincn
was the right way up. After being set right in
that respect he unconsciously placed his poster
over one of equal importance and thus obscured it
from public notice. A .bill poster is not a mere
machine, and at least, he ought to be able to dis
cern betwixt the top and bottom of a full sheet.

His Excellency Governor Dominis returned from
Maui last Tuesday in the S. S. Kilauea Hou.
Flumes are reported to have been blown down
at Kilauea and Kapaa during the recent gale.
The Anglican church above the mill at Kaneohe,
better known as the Rising's Church was literally
squashed by the gale. This is the third time that
the Kaneohe Church has been levelled to the
ground. Fortunately there was no congregation
there at the time, as it happened on a Friday, but
the result wonld have been the same had ithap
pened on Sunday, as this building has not been
patronized for holy worship for several months.
The ground on which this edifice was erected was
the gift of the late Chief Justice C. C. Harris, he
being particularly desirous during his lifetime of
having the Anglican Church service conducted in
that district. The church was built, as ail places
of worship are or ought to be, due east and west.
The wind being south, it received the full benefit
of the blast and collapsed towards the north. The
property belongs to the Anglican Church, but it
would hardly seem probable that another edifice
will be erected for divine service where it ia found
that there is rlo congregation.
A charitable object which is deserving of the at
tention of all residents on these Islands, is set
forth in another column. A committee of five
gentlemen consisting of Messrs. S. C. Damon,
Henry Waterhouse, E. P. Adams, Judge McCully
and Postmaster General Whitney propose to re
ceive subscriptions and donations for the purpose
of ameliorating the unhappy condition of the

About four o'clock on Sunday morning, two la
dies who occupy a room on the upper story of the
Hawaiian Hotel, were disturbed by an intruder
whilst thev were iu bed. One of the ladies felt a

companion, who suggested it could only have been
a matter of imagination or delusion. However, on
arising to turn up the light, a man bolted out of
the room, along the passage way and down the
staircase before they had an opportunity of recog

the police are of opinion that they have a elite to
The S. S. Iwalaui arrived on Mokday, 24 hours
after schedule time. Heavy weather was experienc
ed all round the Island of Kauai, and Captain Cam
eron deemed it advisable to remain and seek an
anchorage in llanamaulu harbor, rather than
come across the channel in the storm. The
schooner Mauuokawai that left here on Wednesday
12th inst. for Ivekaha, lost all her sails. Fortunately
the S. S. James Makee came across her when about
nine miles from the Kauai coast, took her on tow
and left her anchored in tho snug little harbor of
llanamaulu. The schooner was furnished with
canvas by the James Makee and Iwalaui sufficiently
to enable her to proceed on htr voyage.
The New York Tribune thinks that it is not a
creditable thing to tho United States that the con
sular service actually pays a revenue to the Gov
ernment. The official report shows that the entire
expense of the service last year was only f 870,290,
and thut the fees amounted to $914,839, of which
"about one-seventh is a tax on American thipping,
and about five-sevenths are derived from invoice
fees- It' adds that if the foreign service of the
Government were more efficient, and much less
niggardly, the country would gain in self-respect
and the respect of foreigners, and would lose in
A novel anchor was lately improvised on the
English coast which may prove a hint to mariners
around these islands. The schooner Senator of
Kirkwell arrived at tho latter place October 27th,
having encountered a heavy gale. As the sea was
running very high and the vessel would not lie to,
the Captain tried an experiment with a floating
anchor to keep the ship's head to the wind. A raft
of spars and a kodge were lashed together and
thrown overboard and after paying out thirty fa
thoms of chain the ship rode out the gale in com
During the storm ou Friday the 14th inst., a plat
form about CO feet square and used for thrashing in
connection with a Chinese rice plantation, was
l.odilv lifted un by the wind and carried a distance
of about 200 yard and landed within ten feet of the
Kaneohe Plantation storehouse. It is very remark
able but nevertheless true.
The sequence of the intrusion of a lady's bed
room at the Hawaiian Hotel, on Sunday morning,
to which an allusion was made in these columns
on Mouday.was that an employee of the hotel, in the
capacity of " night clerk," was arrested on a
charge of " assault." ,
The Mariposa sailed at noon on Sunday with a
goodly number of passengers and about 500 tons of
freight. Tlie non-arrival of the S. S. Likelike, and
the impractibility of the S. S. Kinau obtaining su

with such a light cargo.

Letters have been received from Captain Tripp,
of the schooner Julia, which give fuller details of
the visit of tlie schooner to the Gilbert Group than
came to hand from Fiji by the Australian steamer.
The Julia made the passage to Marakie in sixteen
days, and landed all the returned laborers who be
longed to that island, as well as a few belonging
to other places, who wished to n ::iai:i ou Marakie.
From Morakie the schooner sailed for Apiang where
they arrived on 18 th August, (Hawaiian time.which
is 19th at the Gilbert Islands) and came to anchor
off the missionary station Koinawa, which is also
the trading station of the island. Captain R. Ku
dolf, who has resided there for twenty years, met
the Julia's party when they landed, and introduced
them to the King of the island Te Kaiea. They
had two interviews with Te Kaiea and delivered
King Kalakaua's letter to him, to which he and his
chiefs have sent a courteous reply. The chiefs
who joined with the King in signimg this letter are
Tai Nabura, the King's uncle, and Teu Toakai Teu
Kabana, brothers of the King. The schooner did
not visit Tarawa, Captain Tripp being informed
that the four chiefs who ruled each his own dis
trict on that island had been killed. As there was
no head chief to receive them, Captain Tripp laud
ed his returned emigrants at Tarawa and went on
to Butaritari. At Apiang a census had recently
been taken which gave the number of the popula
tion t 3.103 of whom 1.533 were females. At Bu
taritari, Captain Tripp had an interview with King
Nauteitei who has also sent a letter expressive of
his desire for friendly relations with His Majesty
to King Kalakaua. Afterwards the schooner had a
troublesome time to get to Kuria, having drifted to
leeward. It took them twenty-five days to ge
back to the Island. Mr. Clarke reports that the

The schooner Moi Keiki left Honolulu for Koo
lau on Thursday the 6th instant, since which date
she has had a very rough time of it. Through the
courtesy of Captain Wahikaula, we have been far

Koolau on Friday the 7th inst., and after discharg
ing cargo, remained there three days loading. At
5 p. m. on Wednesday the 12 instant, were all ready
to ktart for Honolulu, but could not get out of the
haibor on account of the surf. After making sev
eri,l attempts, were compelled to anchor again. A

Finding the vessel still dragged, slipped both ca
bles and made sail and at 7 a.m. on Friday put oat
to sea. When off Makapua Point' the gale had in

The Storm on Maui.
The first communication with tho Island of
Maui since last week reached us last Tuesday morn
ing by the S. 8. Kilauea Hou. The storm set in
there about the same time as it did in Honolulu,
Thursday, 12th inst., and from tho same direction.
The S. S. Kilauea Hou. schooners Anna and Rosa
rio were at anchor in Kahului haibor at the time,
and one of Mr. A. Frank Cooke's schooners ran in
for shelter. The Kilauea Hou kept up steam dur
ing the heaviest part of tho gale, which lasted
forty-eight hours. This was deemed necessary to
prevent her froui dragging. As it was, ono of h:r
chains ' parted. Tho galo moderated on Sunday
night, but during Sunday night there wore some
heavy squalls. The shipping iu Kahului haibor
suffered no damage whatever. Tho rain fell in
torrents aud a good deal of cano was laid low by
tho wind, but it is hoped, not beyond recovery.
Several outbmihlings at Kahului and Wailuku
were blown down, also tho derrick in uo at tho
boring of an artesian well at Kahului. A 12-foot
fence around the new station houso at Kahului was
blown down in several places. 'The most serious
