THE 3AT3 DOINGS
Bible class, Lyceum 7:30.
Spiviul inectiiip: Y.M.C.A.
Bethel Veoliv, ":30.
Excol&ior Lodgo, I.O.O.F., 7 :S0.
Any observant man who has t rav
elled the great countries of the world
would have been struck dumb at the
eight which gicota the eye during
the distribution of letters by the
mail Hlciinu'r from San Francisco.
Men, women and children crowding
struggling and pushing to be the
first ut the window. Indeed once
anyone got into the front rank it was
still more dillluult to get out. And
for a Sabbath day, a duy of rest and
quiet, the scene was disgraceful.
Every vessel that comes here brings
more inhabitants to our islands and
the majority of these cannot aflord
post-boxes, and so have to get their
letters from the delivery window.
And the discomfort and inconveni
ence will increase with the years if
some steps arc not taken to prevent
it. In the uar'.y dayo of California
and Australia, similar troubles oc
curred and the wisdom of the then
postmasters, suggested that n file
should be formed and each take his
place as lie came. This worked well
enough while the population was
email and unbusinesslike!
Now, however, in both places
more convenient method is adopted.
The various delivery windows are
marked with the letters of the alpha
bet and only those whose surnames
commence with the letter indicated
over the window surround that win
dow. Now we do not suppose that
this is necessary here for ordinary
occasions but on tho mail steamer
days this system might be adopted
here. It would add greatly to the
convenience not only of the public
but the officials.
Although wb have pointed out
above the inconveniences of the pre
fcent system, it must not be supposed
that we blame the Post Office offici
als. From the highest to the lowest
we havo found them uniformly
obliging and courteous ; and we arc
sure that the matter needs only to
be pointed out for them totake some
teps to alleviate thetrouble.
Fine rain. at Kauai. Crops look
ing well, but complaints of the
scarcity of labor are heard.
L'it week at Wailuku, Maui, the
fields of cane belonging to C. A.
Bailey and A. Barnes were fired,
and about li acres of heavy cane
burnt. The Wailuku mill made
Lurried pieparatious and ground the
cane. It ir bupposed to be the work
of an incendiary. One man has been
aricsled and is awaiting trial.
Mr. W. G. Irwin returned on Suu
day by the Kilauca IIou from his trip
with Mr. Sprockets and party.
Amongst other things noticed by
tho party we note the following:
Fne raius throughout Hawaii but
particularly in Kan. Tho crops
there look unusually well,
Mr. Spreokolu in putting in a large
area of cauo by means of tho steam
plough. Tiie flume bringing water from
"Waihco is a.lready on Kahului plains.
It is a stupendous piece of engineer
ing. Sand hills havo been tunnelled
through and over 1,250,000 feet of
redwood lumber used.
Messrs. Irwin & Co. have-bought
the old plantation lauds of Kaiwiki,
about COO aert'H for 30,000, with a
view of cxteniiing the Wannaku
plantation. Mr. Costu, tho man
agerof Wniinaku, has erected his
new vacuum pan and other machin
ery, and is now at work grinding.
Col. Jonathan Austin, of Faukaa,
showed the party somo very fine
fields of cane grown on what have
generally been considered exhausted
lands. But by the uso of boucmcal
in the proportion of only 1 ,000 lbs.
to the acre these lands are giving as
good results as most any lands in
All the young canes throughout
the Hamakua and Hilo districts arc
looking well though the coming crop
will not come up to standard owing
to thu protracted cold winter and
drought in the fore part of the

San Fiukcisco, Aug. 25, 1882.
Mn. Editou, Deaii Sik: As
none of the papers here have the
time of my passage correct, please
set them right. I left Honolulu, Aug.
3d, and arrived in San Francisco on
the 20th, consequently 17 days
pa&sagc. I am going to Kahului.

Mn. Editou: Will you allow me
space in your columns for the fol
lowing reply :
To "An Amorican."
I saw your embittered notice of
103 communication to the last
Gazette and am surprised at the dis
jointed style, the conglomeration of
attempted ridicule, spleen and
pathos that you have had the
courage to put forth to public view
without signing your name to it.
Let me tell you that abuse is not
argument, even though u&iguitous.
For one American to attack another
in a foreign country under a nom dc
plume is scarcely the honorable con
duct to be expected from one who
styles himself a soldier and r. de
fender of his country. As a rule,
soldiers are renowned for their open
and honorable methods of warfare,
and their contempt for secret attacks
of all kinds. If you have been a
soldier come out openly to the front
and show yourself, that the public
may see that you can display as
clean a bib as your dear sonny.
