MONDAY. .Jl'NK 2, 1882.
The ujdiv we look at Capt. Luce's
Table, tho jnoro we are impressed
with it- iinpoitnnce and suggeslivc-
ncbs. in the line of political economy,
which hist is .something that our
powers that be should seriously take
into consideration. And firs.t, let
u observe that, while there are lo,
fcM Hawaiian assessed nB tax pay
eife, this figure docs not really re
present -so many able-bodied males, :
for it includes women, (who are
proverbially vain of the distinction
of being taxed) and those who are
taxed for estates which they rc
piescnt. On the other hand, the
eleven thousand and. four Chinese,
who pay taxes to the amount of
S 7-1,01 4, arc all male adults. In
regard to the other nationalities it
appears that the Americans pay
about two-sevenths of the taxes, the
liiitish one-seventh, the Germans
and other nationalities one-seventh,
leaving respectively, two-sevenths
and one-seventh 'to the llawaiians
and the Chinese.
The remarks of the compiler, ap
pended to the table, are worth
The, numbers of horses and dogs
owned by the different nationalities
are not exhibited, but a careful
estimate would place three-quarters
of the former and at least nine-
tcnlhs of the latter in possession of
Estates arc in each instance
counted as individuals. In the Ha
waiian assessment arc a considerable
number of females and estates.
Chinese, Germans and Portuguese,
except some estates, aro exclusively
males. Americans and British have
a few females, as well as estates,
included among them.
There are exempted from personal
taxes in the District of Honolulu,
either as soldiers or firemen, 485
llawaiians and 210 foreigners.
In classifying the different nation
alities the rule has been adopted that
all persons born in this Kingdom of
foreign parentage, should follow the
nationality of the male parent.
When the father is a foreigner and
the mother of mixed or pure Hawai
ian blood, the children are classed

Bridges. The lias hauled alongside
of the new wharf, and is discharging

foreign vessel which has discharged
cargo at a wharf outside of Hono

A resolution offcrred by Mr. Pili
po, was adopted, for the appoint
ment of a special committee to
ascertain and report the quantity of
opium. imported during the past four
years, and the , quantity known to
have been sold. The committee
consists of the Minister of Finance,
and Messrs. Pilipo, Kalua, Lahi-
lahi and Bice. a
Mr. Lahilahi offerred a resolution
to tho effect that the Sorgcant-nt-arms
be instructed to procure a
copv of the Index of Land Claims,
one for encli member of the Assem
bly. After some discussion fee re
solution was adopted.
On motion of Mr. Aholo, the
item of salary for Deputy Collector
of Customs, which was before the
House on the pi evious day, was re
considered, when the Minister of the
Interior moved that tho sum be fixed
at 85000 for tho biennial period.
The motion was strongly opposed
by Mr. Nnwahi, and was lost by a
vote of 23 noes to 21 ayes.
Mr. Palohau offered the follow
ing Whereas a good many tins of
opium were fonnd yesterday in the
Custom House; therefore resolved
that tho Attorney General is hereby
instructed to sue the Collector Gene
ral of Customs and all his subordi
nates." This was probably, another
little fjoaA:' The Minister of the
Interior moved to amend, that Mr.
Palohau be subpoenaed on the part
of the prosecution. The resolution
was indefinitely postponed.
The Taxation Bill was then taken
up in committee of the whole. Hav
ing got as far as section 09, the
committee rose, and the House ad
journed. Zamloeh amused, instructed and
bewildered a large audience on Sat
urday evening nt the. Music Hall.
To-night, by special request, Jhe will
give, as a finale, " Zamloch's Trip

Bt the Likolike yesterday we hear
that Judge Hart's Sugar Mill, at
Niuln, Kohala, narrowly escaped a
conflagration on Tuesday evening
A most interesting occasion was
the three o'clock gathering of the
Sunday School children, at the
vestry" room of the Fort Street
Church, yctcrday afternoon, when
the Rev. Mr. Coan, who over forty
years ago came to these islands as a
missionary, addressed the little ones.

A restaurant hsui at last been start
ed at Hannlei, supplying a much felt
want. On visiting it T found that
Mr. Webb, tho English School
Teacher, already a boarder and
though, as I can vouch for, a good
cook himself, is in ecstasy at
"Bongo's" culinary powers. He
has left Mrs. Johnson's house, and
is now residing with tho Rev. Mr.
Parki and his brother Kaupcna.
Tourists and others visiting that part
of the island may now rest assured
of being able to procure a first-class
meal at a moderate figure, and be
besides waited upon by ono of tho

The Chiunmcn are very busy get
ting in their rice crop, and to all ap
pearand) arc having a splendid yield.
It is rather an uncomfortable time
for uninterested persons, as from
early dawn till late in tho evening
tho yelling, torn tomming, shooting,
t&c, is something frightful. One
wakes up under tho hallucination
fostered by these discordant sounds
during a semi-state of sleep, that
something horrible is taking place,
either a murder, a shipwreck, a fire
or something equally agreeable.
The English School at Waioli, un
der, the management of Mr. Webb,
is progressing favorably, though la
boring under many disadvantages;
the attendance has slightly decreased
lately, owing to the migration to
other parts of quite a number of the
families. When I visited the school
a few days ago, there wore 54 on the
books and 40 in attendance. On this
school I shall have something more
to write after I have visited it again.
Tourists and valetudinarians would

In our remarks on tho striking out

through being misinformed,, done an
