Notes and queries.
Tho Board of Health's idea of
inviting Sisters of Charity to come
.and minister to tho sick of this land,
shonld not ho despised. However
necessary nml useful the physician,
the nurse is equally indispcnsnblc to
the sick chamber and the hospital.
"In fact, in many cases good nursing
is more needed than good doctoring, i
nnd no nurses arc belter than the
Sisters of Charity.
HOPE FOR THAT ROAD.
Junius was slightly in error in
supposing that our actual knowledge
of this district is so contracted as to
be confined within the limits of AVai
kiki.in one direction and the Insane
Asylum road in the other ; but he
was quite correct in surmising that
our "travels" have, at least, ex
tended to the two points designated.
Very recently since the beginning
of the last rains we took auother
look nt that road. Wo found it in
the execrable condition natural to it
iu wet weather ; but were delighted
with the information that tho au
thorities contemplate the commence
ment of operations shortly. This is
prospective "progress," and we
hope soon to be in a' position to
report actual " progress."
SHOOT THE CURS.
Our friend That has, at different
times, expressed his thoughts in our
columns, about dogs. He appears
to object to so much " liberty " be
ing allowed to "leprous, mangy
curs," as well as to tho custom of
making only periodical raids on
these, miserable creatures, of which
.their owners have previous warning.
We arc in full sympathy with That.
In most countries where dogs arc
taxed, the taxing is not so much to
raise a revenue as to limit the niim
ber of dogs ; and, we presume, such
was the intention of our legislators
here. But we cannot say that this
end has been attained. Probably
nowhere out of Constantinople can
such a drove of low-bred, diseased,
, half-starved dogs be found as m this
country. Rigid and unremitting en
forcement of tho tax law would un
doubtedly lessen the number. If at
all times and all seasons throughout
the year, every "mangy cur"
found without the Tax-Collector's
tag were shot, wc should have less
dogs, and lcsssickncss among

Yesterday a painful scene occur-
' rod at the , Government Buildings.
Some three years ago or more a
South Sea Island woman abandoned
her baby. Shc was brought up
corcfully by a native Woman all this
' linie.j, Yesterday her true mother
mado application for the custody of
her child. It was decided in her
favor. Tho little child, who did not
recognize its real mother was torn,
weeping, from the arms of its foster
mother, nnd carried off against its
will. A subscription is being raised
to try and induce the South Sea
Island mother to give up the child,
which neither knows her or loves
her, to tho care of its foster-mother.
All those who wibh to aid tho cause
jiiay cal at the Interior Department.

, ' THE COMET. -
Kditou Bui.i.ivriK : It would only
be waste of time to discuss theoreti
cal points with gentlemen of tho
scientific standing of Capt. Thos.1
Spenccrand his admirer, the P. G.A'n
correspondent "Hilo,' ' but it may be
as well perhaps to correct them ns to
some, of their facts. The latest
comet, which,' according to them,
sprang out of tho Sun liko Minerva
from the head of Jupiter, was seen
on its way towards, tho Sun by pro
fessional observers both iu South
America nnd in Apsh'alln. That part
of its orbit along which it approach
ed the Sun is much further away
from tho earth than that on which it
returned after passing perihelion. It
also forms a very obtuso angle with
the lino joining Karth and Sup at
tho dato of perihelion, llcnco the
comet Hashed into sight suddenly
:pid with its tail much foro-slm,'ten-ed.
Nevertheless if was then ns
brilliant as after' it lind passed the
Sun so much sp that tho wondering
observers paw,, ty l Uuj.bhizo of
l'loni our own Correspondent.
The copious rains which have fall
en during the latter half of Decem
ber and the first week in January,
hnvo been varied by days of warm
sunshine finer weather for the
growth of cane could not have been
made to order. Wo anticipate a
booming crop for 1883.
The railroad is now complete nt
all events the cars have this week
ratii nil tho Wav from Mahukonn toi
Judg6 Ha'rl's, 'Kiulil Mill. It is re
ported that some sugar planters in
llalawa contemplate transporting
their cane to Hart's Mill to grind, or
so much of it, ns they are not under
contract to grind at the llalawa Mill.
This is the more probable, inasmuch
as there is understood to be a
"slight unpleasantness" existing be
tween the present lessees of thu lla
lawa Mill and tho planters. There
was an assault and battery case,
wherein one of the mill people at
tacked' nplnntcr. llic former was
fined SG0 and costs by the Police
Magistrate; appealing to the Circuit
Judge, the sentence was confirmed,
and now wo hear an appeal has, been
noted to llilo for a jury trial.
Tho examination of the charge of
"manslaughter against two young
natives for causing the death ofr the
Hon. M. Aiwohi, about which I
wrote you last week, has been going
on bcfoic the Police Magistrate.
Counsel for tllc.prisonqis raised the
point that the Magistrate was dis
qualified from heating the case, be
cause he was a relative of the widow
of Aiwohi. Article 10 of the Con
stitution was quoted, which says,
"?o person shall sit as a judge or
juror in any case in which his rela
tive is interested," &c. Mr. Aiwohi
and the Magistrate married sisters.
Now wc know that the term "rela
tive" in English signifies either a
blood relation or one 1)3' affinity, i.c,
marriage. But unfortunately, and
as is too often the case in our laws,
the word is incorrectly rendered in
the Hawaiian version, nspilikino
blood connection. However, it is
said the Magistrate is iu doubt and
will refer the point to his superiors.
But in any case, it will be difficult
to 'make out " the crime" of man
slaughter against tho accused for
merely driving a flock of horses
along the public highway, one of
which colliding with the wagon,
caused the unfortunate accident.

tice published in your paper, byl A. M.
Mollis, regarding ills personal attack on
in'c niidus nbilUy'to sell,liis goods nt

and goods palmed on" on "them entirely
averse to what he "represented them to
Compare for one moment my (large,
varied and splendid stock in my Jaiicy
ami dry goods departments, with the
miniature assortment of said Mollis.
Since I dissolved partnership with, A.'M.
Mollis some two years ago, I liayc en
larged my place of business four times
the size it was then: nnd my' Mock is
even now too large to accommodate the
store. Is it any wonder that I undersell
him? It is not the slightest difficult'' for
me to sell myr goodsjn any, department
from 25 to CO 'per cent, lower than him,
and I have facts to prove litis assertion,
all of which Mollis is as fully aware of
as the public; but like sonic others of
his nature when difficulty arise?, trade
falling oil', &c., he risks his last chance
by publishing a sickly card to mislead
the public. The actual drawback to A.
M. Mollis is his unacmiaintancc with
the Eastern and English wholesale
manufacturers, which sets him at sea,
buying, as he docs, indirectly, paying
high prices, and because he cannot com
pete, witli.nic; owhig;to his purchases
being made 'through commission ageii
cies. It would he simply ridiculous for
me lo comimro my choice, well-selected
and varied stock!' importing,' as I do,
largely from direct manufacturing
houses abroad, with the few lines of as
sortment of A. Ml Mollis. If one-third
of my stock of dry or fancy goods was
placed .iii A. Mi,Mellis' nniill'storc,therc
would hot be sufficient room left to even
hang the portrait of said A. M. Mollis.
I would advise Mr. Mollis lo start out in
the now year with fair dealing and
honest representations, and apply him
self to his business instead of falsifying
ids neighbor and making indescrete nn
seition.s, which accii"atlons eventually
will terminate adly against him. To bo
jealous as:A. M. McllU, has soconsjiicu
oiisly shown himself to bo by his card,!
because, my well-regulated prices nnd.
goods aro drawing oil' his small trade, is
a sad omen indeed to Mr. Mcllis; but if,
hecannot compete, with mo in goods audi
low prices he musttdnk into oblivion,
iia time and tide waits for no man iu
these enlightened days.
Belioving from tho kind patronage bo
stowed on mo that the piihlio fuly rely
on my, word that I can undersell A. M.
