T Has come over the spirit of the Min
isterial dream. Yesterday's issue
of the Hand-organ announced that
everything in the future had a rose
ate hue. Work would be pushed on
with vigour, and that, m wc had so
much more money than was expect
ed, we would not need to borrow
auy. All this sounds well, hut "fine
words butter no parsnips," and wc
will not say anything till wc sec a
little of it done. As to the not bor
rowing, wc thiuk the true reason is
like that givcit by the Irishman who
was asked why he didn't have his
supper:' " Because I couldn't get
any!" was the reply.
Still the Ministry have shown some
evidence of a desire for a new order
of things. Thoy have got rid of a
colleague who disgraced them and
have taken in his place a man who is
well-known to have not only some
ability but some knowledge of how
to conduct himself. This argues
well for the future and wc wish the
new minister every success iirhis
The Y. M. O. A.
Held their usual monthly meeting on
Thursday night in the Bethel Ves
try. After the usual preliminary
business and reports had been lis
tened to, Mr. F. W. Damon read a
paper dealing with the provision that
ought to be made by the Associa
tion for the boys now gro ing up
into manhood in Honolulu. He pro
posed the founding of an auxiliary
association for the boys themselves,
which would lead them into good
-company and good habits, and
might ultimately induce them to join
the parent association. He was de
lighted to And that there was al
ready an association, the Boys'
Library & Heading Boom Associa
tion, which was appealing to the
best elements in our boys. He
thought that this might be offered
the use of a room iu the now build
ing. But yet there ought to be
something more than this. The ideas
or plans which he put forward were,
to have an Association with two
chief departments: the Home and
Foreign Departments. The latter
was, in his mind, very important.
The work done amongst and by the
girls as Missionary Glcancts was
well-known and very encouraging.
This Foreign Department would do
tho same for the boys.
Then the Home Department'
should, ho thought, have sections
such as Temperance, Clean Mouth
Department, Prevention of Cruelty
lo Animals, &c. All of which would,
ho thought bo of great assistance, not
only to tho boys, but to the parpnt
Association. Tho address was eje
cocilingly interesting and was re
ceived with applause. After a shoi t
discussion tho President, Mr. F. W.
Damon and Mr. T, II. Davles, wcio
unanimously appointed a Committee
to inquire into the subject and io
port at n future meeting, The meet
ing was closed with prayer and

An official notice was given yes

This ought to be inquired "into.

next monthly meeting of the Y. M.

All arc invited to attend, especially
the young men.
Mr. Dodd gives holicodn another
column ttmt he will not run any,
moro busses to Waikiki or Palama
for a few days, on account of the
state of the roads. What further
comment on the state of affairs is
needed than this? Hero is a practi
cal man who is forced to give up
part of his business and incommode
the public because tho Government
have so neglected the roads that they
arc impassable oven to such good
teams as it is well known that Mr.
Dodd possesses. ,
Oxt.i night this week a daring
burglary occurred in a house on
Fort street. About 9 o'clock a man
walked into the house and lit a light
and then ransacked cvciything,
finally walking off with a hat. A
member of the family was lying
asleep in another room. Hearing
the noise he called out, and finally
got up, and, seeing nobody, thought
some of the family had come in and
gone out again. However when the
rest came ihome the true state of af
fairs was discovered.
Whatever may be thought of the
wisdom of Mr. Kapena's giving up a
certainty for a very uncertain tenure
of ollice, there is no doubt that it
leaves a vacancy. We think tlint the
public of these islands are at one
with us in wishing that the vacancy
may be offered to Mr. II. M. Whit
ney. Mr. Whitney's career on these
islands is too well known to need
anj- comment from us, but it would
be one of the most giaceful acts this
government could do to appoint the
Father of the Post Oillu'e to manage
its affairs. Since w riting the above
we learn that the Hon. II. M. Whit
ney has been appointed Postmaster
General and his Commission has
been made out.
"Every available spot was occu
pied standing room and all not
only within the Palace gi omuls, &c
&c." The above quotation bears
upon its face the stamp of false-hood.
How many people docs our contem
porary think could be placed stand
ing in the Palace grounds? Its own
report says about 7000 were present.
The amphitheatre, verandah, pavil
ion, and floor passage held over 5000
of theso. About five times that
number could have been accommo
dated with case and still not fill up
every available spot of standing

Our correspondent writes:' On
Boxing Day, according to custom the
magistrates are elected, and at 9
o'clock on that morning the mag
isterial call (three knocks and a
pause) on the Church bbll was heard,
summoning all good citizens to the
hall of justice for that purpose. At
10 o'clock nearly everybody had
assembled, when the Returning
Officer, the Rev. Mr. Nobbs, our
aged chaplain, opencd'the proceed
ings with prayer. Af tcrwardsj the
then office-holders, John Buffet, jun.,
Ephraim Christian, and John Yopng
were, by show of hands, voted out ;
and after considerable opposition
and excitement. Francis Mason
Nobbs,chicf magistrate j Seymour
Buffet, first councillor; and Allen
Buffet, second councillor were elec
ted in their places, so that, although
wc have a return to tho Nobbs
dynasty, he is fenced in by two Buf
fets. It is many ycais since we
have had a real Pitcairncr on the
throne, but on this occasion one
William Quintal pushed the reigning
chief very close. Mr. Francis
Nobbs has held the offico before
with credit; his confrcics, however,
arc new to hnrness. The annual
pow-wow on Now's Day was yell
attended. The new magistrates
were bworn in, and the chief made
a speech giving his views on matters
and things: nftcrwardB the laws
were rend over, and commented
upon. A prominent elder made him
self conspicuous by proposing a
motion to try 'mid disfranchise nil
strangers, nndcr a law which is quite
modern, and which indeed sotnei of
thorn were instrumental in passing.
Stiange to say, he was supported.
However, good sense among the
majority prevailed ; tho proceedings
lasted all da3', and although there
was much talk, little or nothing was
done." 4 M, Herald. tC
