DEMANDFOR BED GRASS.
Among tho indigenous grasses of
this' country is one which the native?
(lianic plli. Its natural clement is
moist, marshy soil, where it grows
very rapidly and ordinarily reaches
a height of four or live feet. When
young and tender it is not bail fod
der for animals, particularly for
milch cows. Formerly it was much
used by Hawaiians for the walls and
roofs of their huts. It Is now, how
ever, not much in demand for that
purpose, civilization having super
seded it 1)3 imported lumber. Its
ichief use at 'the present lime is for
making mattresses ; and it is by no
iricans a bad matciial for that object
probably the best tho country pro
duces. When properly dried it be
comes tough and spiingy, and
retains those properties for a long
lime. For these reasons intelligent
'upholsterers use it in preference to
rice straw or any imported straw.
'Of late 2(7i has been more in de
mand than at any previous time, not
merely because its good qualities arc
becoming better known, but princi
pally because of an increased de
mand for beds. And why this in
creased demand for beds? Because
plantation owners and managers arc
becoming more concerned for the
comfort and happiness of their
laborers, and along with better
dwellings, they arc furnishing better
deeping accommodation. Shortly
nfter tho arrival of the last lot of
Portuguese immigrants, some hun
idrcds of yili mattresses, single and
double, were made here and scut to
rvurious - plantations, for the use -of
'the new comers. The majoiity of
our sugar planters appreciate the
fact that a little extra money ex
pended on tho lodgings of their em
ployees is money wisely and pro
fitably invested, becnuse of its being
promotive of contentment. But if
any arc forgetful of their people's
comfort, or negligent of Govern
ment regulations and requirements,
the periodical visits of the Inspec
tor, tho Hon. A. S. Clcghornj oper
ates as a wholesome reminder. It
is part of this gentleman's duty to
inspect laborers' quarters, and to
insist that they conform to the
requirements of law. Wo believe he
is neither backward nor timid iu the
'pcrformunco of his duty, which may
largely account for tho increased
demand for ji7i grass.
A BREWERY FOR HONOLULU.
Wo notice that a petition is being
circulated to obtain a license for the
establishment of a brewery in this
town. Some years ago, wo have
heard, a brewery was started but
failed from various causes such as
impurity of water, &c. Now, how
ever, those troubles aro obviated as
artesian water can be ubcd. It is
urged that the establishment of a
"brewery here ought to bo supported
as the liquor brewed would be of the
test' quality, and Hawaiians would
more readily drink it than whiskey
.or 'Other spirits and thus would be
leas' liablo to injure their health from
drinking bad liquor. We undor
fitaud that the countenance and ap
proval of Hcvcral of our wealthiest
and highest citizens and others have
been given to tho project.
