"We extract the following:
"There hns been somo talk nbout
effectively reforming the Employ
ment Bureau of the Y. M. C. A. It
hns been very plausibly contended
that this branch of the Association
is, and has been, quite useless. In
deed it lias been alleged that some
of those who have applied to the
Employment Committee for as
sistance in procuring work, were
treated with not only cold indiffer
ence but nctual effrontery. Their
applications seem to have been re
garded as troublesome, and the
applicants frequently complain that
they are questioned always with an
impertinent, and often with an in
solent, swapgering tone of critical
contempt. With this sort of manage
ment it is scarcely surprising that
this bureau of the Y. M. C. A. has
been useless, or comparatively so.
There may, of course, havo been a
few instances wherein certain in
dividuals of the Employment Com
mittee have slightly aided a few
parties, whom they cither took a
capticious interest in or considered
useful as tools, but the hard, dis
agreeable fact still remains that the
Employment Bureau is a failure.
However, while the reformation of
t'lis branch of the Y. M. C. A. is
under consideration, it may also be
well to inquire into the prospect of
stcess, which the Employment
Bureau niny properly expect under
the most favorable circumstances.
There is already au elHcient and
ably conducted employment office
i i this city, which is entirely capuble
o. meeting, as far as it is possible,
a'l "wants" or applications for work.
However well the Y. M. C. A. Em
ployment Bureau may be conducted
in the future, as long as it remains
under tins control of the association,
it cannot by any possibility short of
a miracle' become popular, for the
.simple reason that the class of "meTff
'seeking employment have no faith
in thu general piinciples and man
agement of the association itself. In
view of this regretatile condition of
affairs, it might be advisable to
abolish the Employment Bureau
altogether, thus circumscribing the
limited usefulness of the association
to a smaller sphere, that it might be
more efficacious and not be spread
out so "thin as to be invisible."

Their records in these islands are

of Messrs. P. C. Jones jr., B. F.
Dillingham and J. B. Atherton the

these gentlemen are also well-known.
We simply ask the public to compare

Many people, by their conduct, seem
to think the last notice (that, owing to
scarcity of water, irrigation must be
confined to certain hours) is not intended
to be enforced. Thisds a mistake. It
w ill be strictly enforced. If, however,
the hours fixed by the notice arc incon

arrangements by seeing the Superinten

The Committee of Arrangements for
the 11th June Races will issue their pro

doubt that the-Races of 1883 willbe
fully equal to those of years past.
A ruBi.ic debate will be held in the
Y.M.C.A. Hall on Monday evening next,
at ,7:30 p.m., in which nil arc invited to

communities benefited more than they
arc injured by the accumulation of great
wealth in the hands of individuals."
The hall is a delightful place for speak
ing,, and the Committee of the Y.M.C.A ,
who have planned tho debate, expect an
enjoyable and instructive evening's en.
Ahoot a quarter to 3 o'clock on Satur
day morning, March 10th, tho Gcclong
Advertiser discovered that the sky to the
cnstwaid presented a peculiar appear
ance, a yellowish.colored light extending
for a considerable distance along the
horizon. Suddenly an immense ball of
fire, apparently of a yellow hue, appear
cd in the sky, which was perfectly clear
at the time, the stars to the westward
being remarkably brilliant. The pheno
menn worked gradually from the cast to
tho south, the pitching and tossing re
sembling the motion of a kite in n galo
of wind. At intervals, the ball of fire
appeared to detach portions of its lum
inous composition, the brilliancy of
which caused tho starlights to disappear.
Tho strange visitor hovered about, sev
eral points to tno southward, for'morc
than an hour. Probably this was Wig

An incident affording considerable
