THIS DAY'S DOINGS.
Knights 'fcmglnrs, nl 7:30,
Hawaiian Council, No. fiS'J 7:30.
Wc Icnin, with unfeigned satis
facllon, from our contemporary, the
'. (A Advertiser, that "tho govern
muni of this country lias tmanged
to bccurc the services of Dr. Aiinino,
one of Professor NkisseiI's ablest
and most enthusiastic pupils, and
will irrant him nil the assistance in
their power to enable him to make
an exhaustive study" of the subject
of leprosy. Wc have always con
sidered it one of the first duties of
the Hawaiian Government to do
everything possible for the absolute
obliteration of this loathsome dis
ease, not merely by isolnting the
alllictcd ones and thereby causing it
in time to run itself out for want of
fresh material on which to subsist,
but by using every means to discover
a positive cure for the malady. Wc
do not subscribe to the popular
notion, that because nobody has
hitherto discovered a i emedy nobody
ever will discover one, or that be
cause all past attempts to cure have
been ineffectual all future attempts
must necessarily shaie a like fale.
As the woild grows older, know
ledge increases and new discoveries
arc being made daily. Many things
that were considered impossibilities
a few years ago a:c now accepted
facts. We do not assert that lep
rosy is curable, but wo do say that
its absolute incurability is not math
ematically proven; and until such
incontrovertible evidence is forth
coming it is the duty of the Govci n
meiit, as conservator of tho public
good, to seek industriously aud per
sevcriiigly for an antidote to the
great evil. We do not sec how this
duty can bo better performed than
by engaging a gentleman of a scien
tific cast of mind and scientific at
tainments, and withal an enthusiast
in his profession, to devote his entire
time and attention to the one matter.
If remedy there be, wc look for its
discovery, not to blind empiricism,
but to scientific research. Experi
ments aiming at cure, based on
microscopical and chemical investi
gation, are more likely to succeed
than any conducted without an ex
act knowledge of the true nature of
the disease. In securing the services
pf a man presumably in every way
qualified for this work, the Govern
ment pmv.ic a course which must
receive the approval of every intelli
gent aud unbiased wind.
Kings op Men.
In the hall of the Library and
Reading Room Association on Tues
day night, Mr. Cruzan delivered an
cxticmely interesting lecture on the
above subject. From it wc jolted
down the following; To be aJving
.of Men is the aim of every true man,
and it can only be gained by, (1.)
patient, persistent, hard work. This
was illustrated by reference to many
men who had been crowned as King
in their several walks of life. The
years of patient ,study which ,Kcan
gave to the one character of Sir
Giles Ovcircach, the constant appli
cation of Dickens, and the numerous
other examples in biography, point
this out as the first requisite. (2)
Concentration : those men who have
"become famous, have been special
ists ; they had ouc thing which was
their gift, ns Davy with the safety
lamp j Watt with tho steam engine,
&c. The marksman who aims at tho
whole 'target never hits the bull's
eye. Tho Russians have a proverb
that " the man who hunts' two hares
at tho same time catches neither."
Mair nud the Irrepressible and in
imitable Iloswell wore together in
the pit nt tho play. During onq of
the intervals Bc.woll imitated the
lowing of a cow. The audience
were delighted. Cries of " Encore
the cow" were heard. Roswell de
lighted with his success tried to imi
tate tho squealing of a pig and tlio
crowiug of a cock, but failed miser
ably. The audience now hissed in
stead of applauding, and lljulr, in
a stage whisper,, said " Stick to tho
cow, man, stick to tho cow." All
tlicsc point lo ouc, thing stick o
thnt nt which you are best and con
conlratc yoilisclf on it.
(3) The necdpf earnestness is the
next requisite Toillustiatc this 'the
story of Cyrus W. Field's struggles
and defeats and Ins final triumphs in
his cndeavois to connect America
with Kuropo by the first Atlantic
cable, was told.
( 1) Tho fourth requisite was
" Principles, not men," embodied in
the phiase. No man can win whose
heart itSiiot tight. The world ,mny
be mistaken in its judgment, but the
crown will inevitably go at last to
the light man, as witness the death
of John Drown. Who, at tlio time of
his death, but thought that the slave
owners had won tlio victory 1 But
the wotld finally toic the laurels
from their heads aud placed it o cr
the martyr and grave of tho hero
whose soul had been " marching
along" to victory.
The lectin er was greeted with a
hearty round of applause at tho close.
The Mokolii towed in the wreck of
the Emma yesterday. ' II ci; bul
warks aic carried awav, and she is
thoroughly weakened. Her hull had
to be fixed to float her. It is esti
mated that it will take $3000 to re
pair her, and that she will be lim
ning again in a month.
Slmr Waimanalo, "brought 591
bags sugar, 12 barrels molasses.

LOCAL & G-ENEBAD ITEMS.
The "Valley" championship
billiards was contested last night.
On Tuesday a papaya, grown in
Mr. Bollcs' yard, weighing .G lbs.,,
was on view at J. W. Robcitson's.
Yesterday many natives were
drunk through partaking too freely
of tho hospitality of their Chinese
acknowledge the receipts of
news favois to the 2Gth fiom
Messrs. J. W. Robertson & .Co and
J. M. Oat & Co.
The trouble in France over,
the threatened expulsion of the Or

graph wires between Virginia City
and Ogdcn were blown down on the

A DiscitKi'Axcv has just been dis

down on tlic Likelikc lo the Ibanch
Hospital at Kakanko, but as nobody
came down in charge of them and
there was no one to look after them
when they arrived, they simply
skedaddled. They1 were caught on
lani that a .Portuguese laborer, who
was employed in brakiugion one of
the trucks which bring down the
cargo nlong the wharf to the boats,
received fatal injuries this week.
His hands slipped from the brake
and he fell off the car and over the
wharf on to the rocks beneath,
crushing his skull in. Ho died in-
IIavi: any of our renders been
curious enough lo watch the adver
tisement of the Coronation proces
sion programme ns it appears in the
columns of u daily contemporary?
If so, they will have noticed the
various changes that havo ecninado
in it fiom day to day. It seems
strango thnt the order of marching
couldn't be fixed definitely bcfoic
appearing in, print.
It appears that, tho wheels do not
always work right, even in tho happy
family of the Coronation nn angers.
First the Marshal Inserted advci tisc
ments without submitting tho s-imo

cases only lit for Molokaj, but the
Board seem contented'" with their
previous efforts in that direction. If
these were sent, then there would be
room in the Branch Hospital for
those who are there and for those
others who arc still at laige. At
present only 100 out of 200 lepers in
this district have been caught. t
Yi:sti:ui)Av, at 1 a.m., a hideous
din moused almost every one. It
was the crackers for Konohi. All
tffc Chinese places of business word"
closed, and all those places wheto
they base been engaged as help were
in aplllkid, owing to their absence.
Through all the streets they could be
seen in knots of two or three, ic
splendent in gay colors or fine
clothes. In every house and shop
tables wcic spread with strange deli
cacies, anil tea and wine ana even
spirits graced the side-boards.
Little piles of their rod paper, New
Year cards, were on every counter.
The master of the holisc was there
to dispense his courtesies to all call
cis, and liberally was it done in all
easc3. Somo of us foreigners could
