It is admitted that the streets of
Honolulu nro subject to considerable
Irafllc, nnd that, however well made
and with whatever material, tlioy
cannot foicvcr sustain this traffic
without wear nnd tear. It is also
admitted that one day's traffic in
wet weather, when the streets arc
saturated with moisture, will do
more damage .than n week's traffic in
dry weather. It is further admitted
by every observant man that vehi
cles having wheels with wide tires
do less injury to the roads thnn
vehicles having wheels with narrow
tires, nnd that much of the cutting
up of our streets is due to the fact
that narrow tires universally prevail
in Honolulu. In some countries the
law compels all vehicles used for the
transportation of heavy loads to
haye wheels with wide tires. Would
not such n.law hero have a tendency
to preserve the roads and save
the Royal ball.
Wo have gathered in some infor
mation about it, which our readers
may like to' know. The ball was
held in the spot where the Corona
tion took place, the pavilion being
moved on one side and, a nice floor
laid down in its place. Seats on one
side of the amphitheatre were taken
down, and the supper laid- out.
From the Palace to the roof of the
amphitheatre an immense awning,
the property of Mr. Jas. Doibl, was
stretched. The interior of the ball
room thus made is probably the
largest ever seen on the islands, and
was decorated in splendid style with
flags, flowers, &c. The decorations
were the cynosure of every eyo, and
constant comments on their beauty
were heard. The lighting of the in
terior, although there were plenty of
lanterns, was very poor, and in
marked contrast to the splendor and
completeness of the other arrange
ments. The arrangements for car
riages driving up and letting down
their occupautswas not thoughtfully
contrived, for ladies had to cross
the lighted ball-room before getting
to their dressing room. It would
have been bellci; to have had the
nnte-rooms at the back of the Palace
nrid then to have'eome through the
main hall. Although the reception
was announced for 8 :30 p.m., it was
nfter nine before Their Majesties
appeared. A numerous assemblage.
greeted them on their approach,
some 200 couples beinc present.
About the second dance the "King's
weather' gave out, nnd it came on
to raiu, which quickly penetrated
the canvas nnd put a Btop to danc-1
ing. An adjournment was then
made to the throne room, when
dancing was kept up till nftcr mid
night. If it were not for the rain it
would liave been a most enjoyable
Yesterday afternoon the Palace
was thrown open for the inspection
of the public. Quite a number of
them nvallcd themselves of tho op
portunity. In ever' room ladies
were acting ns ushers, and most
politely described to our reporter nil
tho noteworthy objects. In the base
ment is tho culinary department, the
household offices nnd the Chamber
lain's office. On the first floor is the
throne room, on the right hand side,
extending from front to rear of the
building. It is handsomely uphol
stered in crimson nud gold. On the
left ui'C the dining roQuijUiid, the sit:
ting vooin. The dintng room is up
holstered in morocco and the silting
roont in dark blue. Upstairs me the
bedrooms of Their Majesties mid the
Queen's sisters. To each of these is
attached a suite of rooms. The
third story is not yet quite finished,
and no one occupies it as yet. In
His Majesty's bedroom n beautiful
feather quilt was especially noticed.
