resignation op the attorney
Yesterday n mingled feeling of
pleasure and dissatisfaction was felt
nt the liows that His Ex. E. Preston
lincl sent in his resignation. The,
pleasure was at his manly act, and
the dissatisfaction at the step which
had given rise to It. It appears that
Mr. Preston notified His Majesty
and his colleagues that if a retail
spirit license was issued to Mr. S.
Nowlcin he would resign. Yester
day the license was issued, and Mr.
Preston sent in his resignation, to
date from the time that Mr. Whit
ing, who was appointed his Deputy
for the Hilo Circuit, returns fiom
there (viz: on Sunday). "We con
gratulate Mi. Preston on the manly
way in which he has refused to be a
party to any interference with Min
isterial responsibility, and we are
Huro that we have the whole of the
general public with us when we say
that Mr. Preston's honesty and
firmness arc alike honorable to him
self and the country he has served.
The Madras episode.
Ycsteiday morning the Board of
Health took action on the doctors'
leport and notified the captain of
the Madras by letter that he could
come in and land his passengers and
freight, under certain restrictions.
Through a misundcistanding the
captain had thought that by coming
in that would show that ho agreed
to any terms offcied. So, without
waiting, he steamed right inside,
past the light-house and stopped.
When in he was informed of his mis
take bv Mr. Daues, and he immedi
ately steamed back outside. Eight of
the Chinamen were so enraged at
having to go back that they jumped
oveiboard aud tried to swim ashore.
They were picked up by the Police
boat. A great crowd witnessed the
affair fiom the wharf. It is the.geib
eral opinion that throughout the'
captain has acted in a fair and gen
tlemanly way, and even the Presi
dent of the Board of Health had to
say so yesterday morning. The eight
Chinamen were afterwards trans
furred to tho Madras' boat, which
took them on board again. Those
who picked them up were fumigated.
THE ANGLICAN OHUHCH
for May is to hand, and we find that
it keeps up its standard of thought
ful and earnest advice. The article
ou "The Sttcugtiiof the Church"
is good, buj;, though we certainly
believe that "spirituality of personal
life" "personal holiness" is the
chief source of strength to any
church, personal hdli'2?8 ajone,
without belief, cannot, we think, o
of much advantage. It is not the
outward work but the inward feeling
which binds the church into one
homogeneous structure. Tho ex
tracts on Blasphemy and Divorce
uould be read and pondered over
by every thinking man and woman
in our community. There is a ten
dency to make light of these subjects
amongst 'us, and to let them pass
unnoticed. Read these papers and
see the result in other countries of
that policy. We are sorry to see the
Educational department so much
neglected and so full of "dry bones"
Instead of tho life-giving and invigor
ating draught of original thought.

On Saturday Chief Justice Jiifld
rcndeicd a dcclsion'in chambers la the
suit in which the local shareholders in
the Hawaiian Bell Telephone Co. sought
to forfeit tho shares held by tho Oriental
Bell Telephone Co. of London for breach
of contract. The decision was in favor
of the Oriental Bell Telephone Co.
In another column will bo found an
account of what might have proved a
fatal accident. It Is probable that It
would not have occurred If the bridge
bad its railings carried out far enough
both ways to protect passers-by from the
dancer of falline Into the water. All
along the rood there on the makal side
the fall from the edge of the road into
the water is never less than 3 feet, and
as there is no foot-path and little light,
pedestrians at night, in getting out of
tho road of hacks, may easily step over
the edge into the water, and the danger
to drunks and those not in their right
mind is, of course, much greater.
Yesterday morning, as a one-horse
dray, belonging to Mr. Crabbe, was be
ing driven up Maunnkca street, a piece
of p'aper blown'by the wind frightened
tho horse and it began to shy. The
driver, Kcoloha, fell out, ns ills seat was
very shaky, and tho wheels of the dray
went over his left leg, below the knee,
and broke it. The horse nhd dray wpre
stopped by his assistant in the dray at
tho corner of Maunakca and Beretania
streets. Tho sufferer was taken to the
hospitnl in an express. The accident
happened at 9:30 o'clock, makai of the
Eureka Saloon. After being examined
by Dr. Trousseau he refused to stay and
w ent home.
A license has been granted to Mr. S.
Nowleln to keep a saloon on King stieet
opposite the Bethel nnd next door but
one to Castle &, Cooke's. It is an Insult
to the religious Sense of the community
to put a saloon there nnd still moic'an
insult to the pastor of tho chinch who
has so long against the advice of his
friends, upheld and supported the
present Ministry. It Is a direct de
preciation, by the net of the Government
of the value of nil the property in tho
neighborhood and no one except those
interested in tho vonture wanted it Wo
hac enough saloons already. Besides
other equally rcspcctablo applicants had

TnE stato of tho foot-paths in this city
is, generally speaking, a disgrace to any
civilized community. Soino pieces arc
in good repair,-others not so. Some 'aro
distinct from thorest.of tho street, others
cannot bo found even when sought for.
Even whoro there is a recognized foot
path no caro has been taken that the
same should be uniform and level. On
Monday morning a prominent and res.
pected citizen coming along Fort street
stubbed his too aud fell foward, tho
causo being that tho foot-path in front of
one shop was nbout an inch higher than
that next door. So violent was his fall
that his clothes wero cut through right
to tho skin, nt tho knee, and tho latter
was much abraded. The question is se
riously r.usca as to wnetner tno uovcrn
ment is not liabfo in damages for allow
ing the foot-path to bo in such a condi"
tion ns to make such accidents possiblo"
