Time nntl again wc linvo noticed
llic want of ninungcincnt in diffeicnt
departments of the-Government, but
especially in the mutter of road
repairing. It has been n constant
matter of adverse comment in nil
the journals published here. Yet
wc do uothec any endeavor on the
part of the Government to attend to
these matters. They seem to be
perfectly indifferent to criticism and
to go on their own sweet way with
out lefcrcuco to what has been said.
And when they have, in deference to
public opinion, done anything, they
endeavor to conceal their indebted
ness nuil say that it is of their own
Now this is hardly right. If they
do wrong they must expect ciiticism
anil bliould own up when they arc
fairly hit. People would think more
of them and uphold them better if
there wasn't this indifference to
criticism and disingenuous ciceping
out of acknowledging what it has led
them to do. Wo trust that they
will take warning.
HAWAIIAN" MINSTREL TROUPE.
Many of our readers will remem
ber the company of local amateur
theatricals, designated by the ap
pellation of "The Hawaiian Amateur
jMinsticl Troupe," which existed
and flourished in Honolulu three or
four years ago. They gave u scries
of mirth-exciting, side-tearing en
tertainments, at the old Theatre
Royal, the memory of which is still
green in many minds. Their reign
was brilliant, but their life, as a
company, was short. They became
disintegrated and dissolved by re
ciprocal consent, and lovers of
comicality and drollery were sorry.
Those sorry people will bo glad to
learn that the defunct company is
coming to life again. Some of the
old blood has mingled with fresh
)lood, and a numerous troupe, with
hopes and prospects of a vigorous
life, is the result. The new com
pany, which has sprouted from the
ashes of the old, assumes the name
of "The Hawaiian Minstrel Troupe."
It numbers about twenty members,
and is nt the present time actively
rehearsing in preparation for its first
appearancc)bcfore the public, which
will occur siioi tly, and of which due
announcement will be made.

Wr. heard yesterday that expresses

isn't there some one there to see

It is rumored thnt n gentleman
who will arrive here shoitly from
San Francisco is to bo taken into the
Ministry as Minister of the Interior,
and with co-ordinnlc powers with the

Christmas on every side, but wo
notice by the prices obtained at tho
evening auctions that people arc
disposed to be economical in their
distribution of Christmas boxes.
Tin: culvert on the Palama road,
of which correspondents have com
plained at different times, has been
properly attended to not merely
repaired, but entirely renewed, the
old coral stones having been lcmovcd
and the entire culvcit constructed of
Mit. II. J. Noi.ti: is raffling some
self winding watches and very fine
meerschaum cigar holders. The
drawing will take place on Christ

disposed of or not. These watches
are little gems in their way, and we
advise our fiicnds not to miss the
To-Momiow night the Library and
Heading Room Committee will give
a Christmas entertainment in their
rooms. The programme is not fully
decided on, but it will consist of
Christmas carols read by several
persons, n selection by the Quintette
Band and a vocal solo. The public
are cordially invited and admission
will be free.
As it is not an uncommon thing
for watches to' be stolen, and by
their passing through several hands
the police arc unable to trace them,
it would be well for all persons who
have watches offered them for sale,
or pledge, or by other means, have
possession of them, to communicate
the fact at the Police-station. This
could easily bo done by telephone.
"Wk notice in yesterday's Gazette
another instance of the benefit, of in
suring one's life. The late C. T.
Dillingham insured his life for 82,

surance Co. of California, for which
Mr. II. AV. Lainc is general agent
here. He had only paid two pre
miums, amounting to 883.72, when
the fatal accident took place. We
notice this as being a splendid in
stance of the value of life insur
ance to everybody.
Wmi.K the hearse belonging to

A SINGULAR ACCIDENT.
The Waugaratta Dispatch nar
rates the following particulars of a
terrible necident which occurred nt
Eldorado, Australia, Nov. 23rd:
"It nppcnrs n girl, nged about 10
years, daughter of Mr. McGregor,
was standing on the road when n
person on horseback was passing,
nnd before the poor girl could get
out of the way the animal stumbled
and fell on top of her. In stumbl
ing the animal somehow threw up a
lump of a stick four feet long and
about the thickness of n man's
wrist. In falling the blunt end of
the stick was in contact with the
horse's shoulder, the sharp end
meeting the girl's right breast. The
weight of the falling sent tho stick
right through the poor child's body,
entering at the right breast and
coming out at her back by the
shoulder, and then entering the
ground, pinning her to the earth. The
mother of the poor girl, after several
ineffectual attempts succeeded in
dragging the stick out of the poor
little sufferer's body, the end being
still covered with earth after coming
right through, tho precaution of
cleaning the end before drawing it
not having been thought of. So
great was the force which sent tho
wood through the child's body that
nil the baik was peeled off. Dr.
Haley did all in his power for the
poor little sufferer, but considcis
the case a hopeless one."? .
