A DREAM OF GREATNESS.
Tuesday's Jdcevtlno' seems to
dream of Hawaii nei becoming tlic
commercial centre and the political
capital of this great ocean. This
di cam lias been dreamt before; but
clear-headed, unpoclie, matter-of-fact
men have smiled incredulously
at its recital. Certainly, "intelli
gence and enterprise need not and
will not confine themselves to the
narrow limits of the islands." As a
matter of fact, they do not. " In
telligence and enterprise" may bo
found on other islands in this ocean
at the present time, and they arc not
indebted to these islands for their
origin nor dependent on them for
their further giowth. Neither is it
probable that the " intelligence and
enterprise," which are sure eventually-
to encompass every island nhd
islet of the "vast sunounding
ocean," will ever consent to be con
trolled and ruled by this group.
Hawaii's true policy is to confine
her attention to herself, and strive
to ('take rank with nations that
command respect and considera
tion," by enlightened and judicious
management of hei own affaire and
the development of her own
resources. Patient, nnd faithful ad
herence to this policy will ultimately
result in the Hawaiian Kingdom be
ing " no longer a mere nominal
State;" whereas a Napoleonic policy
of. conquest nnd acquisition would
moqt likely end in " vaulting ambi
tion overleaping itself and falling on
tlic otber side."
To-day is His Majesty's 4Cth
birthday. Wc arc to enjoy a day's
sport in regattas and boat-racing,
and private picnics and parties have
been arranged in honor of the day.
It must indeed gratify His Majesty
to see how his subjects arc preparing
heartily to enjoy themselves for the
AVo wish for ourselves and wo
know for our readers also not only
our aloha nui for this occasion, but
maiy happy and prosperous returns
of it to His Majesty.
On Tuesday evening by invitation
of the Committee of the Library
and Heading Room Association, a
large number of people assembled at
the Music Hall to listen to Captain
Button's lecture on " Rivers." The
lecturer was introduced by Prof.
Scott with a few appropriate re
marks. Captain Duttou spoke first
of tho Hudson, Delaware, Susque
hanna and other livers in the Atlan
tic States which he termed finished
rivers, illustrating the method of
their working in a very interesting
manner. He cited other rivers in
tho Western States and Territories
which arc now doing the work long
since completed by these Eastern
rivers, wearing their water courses
down slowly but surely. Ho de
scribed very clearly the cutting
power of the sand and debris carried
by streams, and alluded to instances
where the cutting of channels jiad
been so rapid as to make a percepti
ble change in tho courbo of a few
months. He explained many in
teresting phenomena of different
rivers in vaiious parts of the Ameri
can Continent, and nlthough only
able to touch briefly on the different
points in such a short lecture, im
parted much valuable- information
to his attentive and appreciative
audience who received his remarks
with loijd applause. !,
These jiiystic , Initials pertain to
tho Boy's Heading Room Associa
tion. Tho Association gave its first
annual dinner on Tuesday evening
at Mrs. Monsarrat's residence. Tho
only invited guests were representa
tives of the press.
At,, 9 o'clook the members and
guesla sat' down to a sumptuous" re
past, provided for by special sub
scription amongst the 'tnomberri ami
their relatives, so as not to encroach
on tho funds of tho Association for
any other than a legitimate puypose.
TJto cliulr wis taken by the Presi-
dent, flip. C. A. llrown, and duilng
the evening the most varied toasts
were given and lcspomlod to, until
every person present had spoken at
least once, borne very nice songs
and choruses -were sung, and the
utmost harmony and good feeling
were visible. The room was draped
with Hawaiian, American and Eng
lish flags, kindly lent for the pur
pose. The prosperity of the society was
fihown by the facts that at the start
there were only 7 members, and now
there are 21, and there is a balance
to their credit in tho hank. It is a
good thing to see our b03's have so
much enterprise and stability as to
initiate nn affair of this kind and
keep it going on so prosperously.
Wo trust that they will never lack
the support and continuance of their
friends and lclativcs, and will go on
adding to their list of members from
time to time.

which occurred in one of the editor

the article on "Stallions," lcfcionco
is made to tho Law of 18G8. 1 find
that sections 118 and 119 of the
Civil Code were repealed in 1880.
The repeal was not noted in tho copy

A really elegant new 'bus has just
been finished by Mr. West for Mr.
James Dodd. It will be used to
day for tho first time.
Tm: Committee of the races have
secured the. use of the James Makce
during tho races. The Band will
play on board.
It w'as a noticeable fact that the
business men of the town and the
leading foreign population were ab
sent from the reception ycsteulay.
Somi: of our church goers would
like to have tho 'busses have leather
washers put on the wheels, as they
make so much clatter when they
drive up dining tho service.
Tin: new buildings erected by Mr.
N. F. Burgess on King street, arc
to be occupied by Mr. Turner,
watchmaker, and Mr. Pickering,
with general merchandise.
Tin: public are notified that the
Couimittco wish the course kept
clear to-day. This is a wiso course,
and wo hope tho Committee will sec
to it, 'for nothing is more annoying
than to have races stopped or pro
longed by unnecessary impediments.

Owing to the remonstrances of cus

tho cows' backs have been fdiingled

No wonder when thcro arc about

Tlio Torchlight' Procession last

Oor. readers have no doubt
noticed the fact that Mr. F. S.

that their first sale will take place

with their duo share of success.

Tin: last Poitugueso immigrant
left tlic depot yesterday and went
up to Kohnia on the Likelikc. She
came out here as a single girl and
one of her countrymen at Kohala
hearing of her came down and pro
posed to marry her. She accepted
him and on Tuesday tho ceremony
was performed at the Iioninn Catho
lic Cathedral, after which the happy
pair proceeded to Kohala.
Mr. Furncnttx has spent the time
since his arrival from Hawaii in
sketching at Waikiki. He will bo in
town next week, at Dr. Whitney's
rooms, where his friends will have
an opportunity of seeing his now
works, which arc in no way inferior
to the old ones. We think that
some of these paintings would form
most artistic and tjencrous Christ
mas gifts. It seems to us that the
opportunity should not be lost.
Many people here do not read the
P.O. A. weekly, because they have
alicady read the daily. However,
some have noticed the insidious ten
dency lately of articles appearing
only in the weekly, and intended for
readers abioad." ThoFenbr of'these
articles is to represent tho 'Tiscr as
a religious, fricndly-to-tho-missi&n-ary-party
paper, and the opposition
press as consisting only of one
paper, the GazettCi and that unreli
able. .Steps should bo taken to pre
vent these false ideas going un
corrected, as tho "Tiger is zealously
circulated in the United States.
