' ' A SERIOUS STATEMENT.
Up to the present time our nvlc
siau wells have been looked on as
siblc to afford us nn inexhaustible
supply of water, and in view of the
occasional break down of the water
works supply this was a most grati
fying belief. Now, however, the
statement is made that for six
months past tho flow has been
steadily declining at the rate of an
inch per month.
Mr. Bingham and Judge McCully
have both got accurate gauges fitted
lo their wells, nnd they state that
the water is declining at this rate.
'As Mr. Bingham's well is at the
upper limit the diminution is more
iioliccable. Apparently, then, wc
have reached the limit of artesian
wells as a source of water supply for
the city, and must even be careful
of what wc have. Prompt action
should be taken by the Government
and all well-owners lo remedy as far
as possible this impending calamity.
COME AND GONE.
Has returned safe from her extended
voyage and the Captain gives a most
satisfactory account of it. She
brings 95 laborers of whom 6 are
women, all stout, hearty, and happy.
She has in addition 2!) men engaged
or boats' crews at Rotumah, who
will be returned there. "When the
vessel anchored she was boarded by
fie British Commissioner, who en
quired strictly into the treatment on
fie voyage. Not one had died, and
all were loud in their praise at the
kind treatment and good food they
had received. The last island
touched was Jaluit, 23 days ago.
The Morning Star- left there on the
23rd of November, all well.
Left yesterday afternoon with 100
returning Islanders. The amount
.of arms nnd ammunition taken with
them will enable them to obtain the
mastery over all those in their own
or neighboring islands. And it is a
Christian country which allows this,
and thus " wc 'comes the coming and
speeds the palling guests."

Editok Bri.i.r.Tix : "Will you
kindly nllow me space to correct the
erroneous impression which may be
conveyed by a paragraph in the
Hmcaiian Gazette of the 10th inst.,
referring to the burglary and at
tempt at arson on my premises. It
says, "Hon. W. L. Green seems to
have incurred tho enmity of some
almond-eyed Celestials of tins city,
having had his house broken into
and several valuable articles taken
therefrom." It then refers to the
It was an out-building where the
Chinamen slept that was broken
into, and nothing of mine was
taken, or was thcc to be taken. A
gold ring and a few dollars (total
value $11) was stolen from a China
man, the former fellow-servant of
the thief, and between whom there
was a feud. All tho facts and it is
only a short story have been now
twice clearly stated in public, once
in the Police Court, and last Mon
day before the Supremo Court, when
the thief was convicted.
With regard to the attempt nt
arson I may say that it has been
suspected at the Police Station since
Monday night, nnd in which I con
cur that the facts so far developed
do not indicate enmity tome or any
one connected with me, but rather
it was o. half-witted and make
believe attempt at arson, which
might, it is true, have proved
serious, but was probably got up
with the object of throwing the
suspicion of the crime on some one
else. As the matter is still under
investigation it would not be right
to publish the particulars.

His Majesty was quite right in
nirogating to himself the right of
appointing oflicers over that half
white arnry, that was about to be
organized. Ilis Majesty's keen per
ception of affairs abroad, leads him
to have- a1 decided objection to an

sugar importers and refiners, to ask

the House Foreign Affairs Com
mittee, with regard to tho political
bearings of n proposition to abrogate
the Hawaiian Treaty, bo withheld
until certain facts relating to that
branch of tho subject 111113' be sub
mitted. He vwis assured that the
reply would bo withhold, and it is
thought now that tho Comniittcu's
inquiries at the Treasury Depart
ment respecting the commercial
bearings of the proposition, ns well
as nt the Stato Department, will,
with facts to bo submitted by tho
trade, come up for discussion nt
Friday's Cabinet meetintr.v The
rumors of a, possibility of the cstab

for some time overhung attempts at

Late Foreign news.
For a few days pnst there has
been considerable quiet talk among
a few gentlemen close to the Ad
ministration, and in a position to
catch the cream of talk in diplomatic
circles, lo the effect that the Junta
of Guatemala was about lo take a
step that not only would be startl
ing, but would excite tho deepest
interest both in this country and in
Europe. It is said the slop which
the Junta proposes lo take is to pass
a resolution asking the privilege of
admission ns one of the United
States. As is well known, difficulty
lias existed for a long time about
the boundary line between Guate
mala and Mexico, and it was under

visit to this country Inst Summer was
lo get the United Stales to interfere

The rehearing of the inquiry intot
the loss of the Escambia was con
cluded recently1 nt Westminster,
England, before the Wreck Commis
sioner and Nautical Assessors. The
decision of the Court was that the
vessel was overloaded on her de
parture from this port, and although
they blamed the Captain for taking
the ship to sea loaded as she was,
the Commissioner treated it as nn
error of judgment, nnd would not
suspend the Captain's certificate.
It is said that the Thames and
Mersey Insurance Co. will imme
diately commence a suit against the
Escambia Steamship Co., and en
deavor to recover the whole amount
of the insurance paid on the cargo,
inasmuch ns the fact was established
in the rehearing of the case that the
steamer was overloaded at the time
she left this port. A commission
organized for that purpose will take
testimony before United States Com
missioner Hoffman sonic time during
the coming month. The testimony

Determined to Undersell !
NOTWITHSTANDING the impu
dent, ignorant and malicious no
tiee published in your paper by A.M.
Mellis, regarding Ids personal attack on
me and his ability lo sell his goods nt
bed rock prices, mid other similar fabri
cation matter. I would simply say that
his tirade by'lhis method to deceive tho
public hns long since been fully played
out, and even the native clement "has
been too often deceived by over-charges,
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 fancy
and dry goods departments, with the
miniature assortment of said Mollis.
Since I dissolved partnership with A.M.
Mellis some two years ago, Llinvc en.
Inrgcd my place of business four times
the size 'it was then: nnd my stock is
even now too large to accommodate tho
store. Is it any wonder that I undersell
him? It is not the slightest difficulty for
me to sell my goods in nny department
from 20 to 50 per cent, lower than him,
nnd I have facts to prove this assertion,
all of which Mellis is ns fully aware of
as the public; but like some others of
his nature when difficulty arises trade
falling off, &c, he risks ids last chance
by publishing a sickly card to mislead
the public. The actual drawback to A.
M. Mellis is his unacrpinintnncc with
the Eastern and English wholesale
manufacturers, which sets him nt sen,
buying, ns he docs, indirectly, paying
high prices, and because he cannot com
nctc with 111c, owing to his purchases
licing.mndu through commission ngen
cics. It would be simply ridiculous for
nic to compare, my choice, well-selected
and vnricd stock, importing, ns I do,
largely fiom direct manufacturing
houses abroad, with tho few lines of as.
bortment ot A. JU. Jiellis. If one-third
of my stock of dry or fancy goods wns
placed in A. M. Mellis' Miinil,storc,tlicro
would not be sufllclent room left to even
hang tho portrait of said A. M. Mellis.
F Would advise 2Ir. Mollis to start out in
the now year with fair dealing and
honest representations, and apply him.
self to his business instead of falsifying
his neighbor and making indcscrctc ns
sei tions, which accusations eventually
will terminate sadly against him. To ho
jealous ns A. M. Mellis hns so conspicu
ously shown himself to he by bisenrd,
because my well-regulated prices and
goods aro drawing oil' his smnll trade, is
a sad omen indeed to Mr. Mellis; but if
he cannot compete with me in goods and
low prices lie must sink into oblivion,
as' time nnd tide waits for no man in
these enlightened days.
Believing frpm thekind'pntronngo he.
stowed on mo thatlho public, fully rely
on my word that I can undersell A. SI
Mellis, that I always hnve and always
will. I reninin, very lespectfully,
