SATURDAY, APBIL 20, 1882.
THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY
Tor tho Session of 1882, will bo
opened at noun to.dny, by His Ma
jesty in poison, hi the Legislative
Hull of AHiolnni Hale. The occa
sion Is one of no little state and
ceremony. The Hnll is not opened
to the general public, tickets of ad
mission being issued, which rend
thus : " His Majesty will convene
the Legislative Assembly of 1882,
on Satmdny, April 29, at 12 o'clock
M. Admit to the Legislative
Hall. W. N. Armstrong, Minister
of the Interior." Everybody U ex
pected to appear at about half-past
11 o'clock, and in their best clothes,
in hon r of the Court, Within the
latter charmed circle, besides the
members of the ltoyal Family and
their immediato attendants, -w ill be
the Chancellor of the Kingdom,
Judges of the Supremo Court, Mem
bers of the Cabinet and of the Privy
Council, and Representatives of
Foreign Powers, and their ladies.
Cards of invitation to attend the
Court have been issued as follows :
"His Majesty the King will open
the Legislative Assembly of the
Kingdom in pcrsoa. His Majesty's
Chamberlain is requested to
invite to occupy a seat
within the Court of Aliiolani
Halo at 12 noon on Saturday, the
29th day of April. Full dress.
Chamberlain's oillce, April 26th,
1882." Troops will bo drawn up
in front of the building, and on the
arrival of the Royal Cortego a salute
will be fired, the troops present
arms, and the Band will play 4 Ha
waii Ponoi." As the King enters,
fromthc Interior office, thoaudienoo
will rise, and remain standing until
the delivery of the Speoch. This
usually occupies about ton miuutes,
at the conclusion of which tho King
ret;, s, and the audience disperses.
Usually it lias been tho practico of
the Secretary of tho last session to
call the members to order for thd
choice of a President pro tera.,
whereupon an adjournment takes
place until Monday, when the As
sembly will be formally organized.
After that, the trouble begins.

Mu. Editou: If you will allow
mo space for n few Hues about road-'
1 will consider it u favor. Many and
strong nro tho complaints that have
been, and nvc being, uttered con
cerning the roads in and around Ho
nolulu. Thcso complaints arc, for
the most part, neither groundless
nor unreasonable. In dry weather
wo manage to move about without
much difficulty j but let it rain for n
day or two, or even an hour or two,
bow then ? Considering thu liberal
appropriations made by the Legisla
ture and tho large amounts expend
ed by tho Executive, our highways
and publio thoroughfares should be
in a passable condition in all kinds
of weather. Hut they are not. To
a spectator, the results attained
seem altogether disproportionate to
the means employed, Tho money ex
pended during tho past biennial
period should have given us better
roads and more of them, Who is to
blamo? Where is tho loose screw?
In tho first plnco, tho method of
road-making is not always of tho
highest or most intelligent order.
For instance, tilling up holes with
dust or mud. Better have empty
holes than holes full of slush. In
tho next place, the road-makers do
not kill themselves by over-work. I
refer to tho prisoners. Everybody
who has seen them at work can tes
tify to their being religiously ob
servant of the proverbinl government
stroke. But, above all, the keeping
in repair is most ncglocted. A
small rut becomes a big one before
it is stopped. Our road authorities
apparently despise the fact "a stitch
in time saves nine" An active ap
preciation of this fact would save
both roads and money. How, think
you, would the following plan work?
Let our principal roads and streets
be divided into bents of a given
length; each bent be placed under
the care of a competent mnn; it
shall be the duty of this man to at
tend constantly to his bout, mending
every little break as soon as it is
made, and keoping his portion of
tuc road under tnoiougli repair.

The othor day a young gentleman
of this city, (who from his educa
tion ought to have had more dis
cretion) becoming annoyed because
his horso had been put into tho gov
ernment pound for trespass or as an
cstray, proceeded vi et amiis, to
knock down the fence of the pound
enclosure, whereby he liberated not
only his own horso but a number of
others confined there under similar
circumstances. The pound keeper,
strange to say, was displeased at
tho young man's conduct in tho pre
mises, and had him before Judge
Biekerton, with whom (another bit
of eccentricity) he endeavored to
argue that he had done nothing
wrong. Decision this morning.
