The great p.-eventativo of tho
spread of agriculture iu these islands
is the want of regular supplies of
water. Numbers of artesian wells
have been bored, and others aro in
course of completion. And these arc
doing good work, but uo steps have
as yet been taken to conserve the
' natural water supplies. Nature has
bountifully provided each of the
islands with a condenser in tho shape
of a high mountain ridge, but no
advantage is taken of the supply
. thus gratuitously given. Nob pro
vision has as yet been mado to col
lect and store the rain which falls
almost daily on our mountains. It
is allowed to run to waste without
an effort to prevent it. And as the
government have made provision for
the services of a capable engineer in
connection with the improvement of
agriculture, we would suggest that
one of his first duties be to visit the
mountains and draw up a thorough
and comprehensive scheme for the
collection and conservation of our
' natural water supply. There are,
too, we believe, several spots which
may be termed natural basins or re
servoirs scattered throughout the
' islands. One of theso is high up in
the- Nuuanu Valley, but has been
choked up by detritus from the sides
of the Pali ; but which, if cleared
out," would soon be filled with water
without any artificial assistance. We
commend this to the attention both
of the Government and the Agricul

His. Ex. W. M. Gibson stated
that the reply ought to be made by
the Minister of the Interior, but as
he was absent, he himself would
read a partial report which had been
(He then read a report which we
will afterwards publish for the in
formation of our readers, to the
effect that A. Hoffnung & Co.,
charged tho Board of Immigration
5G1.232 for the immigrants by S.S.
Monarch, who had by the purser's
accounts only cost thorn about
820,000. And as the profit
appa'reutly made by Hoffnung
& Uo. was so excessive the
the Government had stopped the
immigration, pending inquiries in
Portugal and Azores if the cost was
reasonable. Certainly the gentlemen
bad a right to make some profit, as
they undertook a rcat risk in the
contract. But although His Majesty's
Government were satisfied with the
immigrants they did not wish to
spend moro than was judicious.)

A Largo Payment.
New Bedford Mercury, June 15, 1882.
The following speaks for itself :
Francis E. Manlcy, Esq., Massachu
setts Superintendent of Agencies of
the Mutual Life Ins. Co. .of New
York, arrived in this city yesterdaj',
bringing to the local agents, Messrs.
Lawrence Grinnell & Co., to bo paid
over to Mrs. Susan C. Nye, thf
company's check for 825,694, in
full payment of a policy of 810,000,
and dividend additions, held in the
company, by our lato esteemed citi
zen Capt. Thomas Nye, Jr., who it
will be remembered, took his own
life a few weeks since. This policy
was taken at the age of fifty and
there were twenty-eight annual pre
miums paid of 8464, 20 each,
amounting to 812,997.60; add com
pound interest at 4J per cent., 812,
059.57 ;total 8?5'057.17; and the
the amount paid by the company,
exceeds tho total premiums with in
terest, 8636.83, besido the value of
tho insurance for twenty-seven years
of an amount increasing from 810,
000 at the beginning to 825,694 at
the close, whilo tho annual dividends
on tho policy have exceeded the an
nual premiums for many years.
Such astonishinc results cannot fail
to awaken a deep interest among our
intelligent citizens, and we com
mend tho company to their thought
ful attention. This action of tho
company docs away with tho bug
bear of non-payment of suicide
claims, which has been so industri
ously circulated against them by tho
rival agents of inferior companies.
