The comparative statement of re
ceipts of the last half of the past
fiscal period and the first half of the
present, when looked into carefully,
presents many facts of serious im
portance. Deducting the cash on
hand from each period and receipts
from bonds sold, leaves the receipts
for the former period $1,005,209.79,
.and for the lattc $1,140,780.21 an
increase of the past year of $51,
510.42. Of this increase $51,204.83
is from customs, while the increase
from taxes is only $11,007.52. The
increase of taxes foi the past fiscal
period of two years, as shown by the
report of the Minister of Finance to
the Legislature last year, was 8 131,
530.74. The question, then, is, has
property increased in value during
the past year in proportion to former
years. If it has, the fault is in the
Finance Department in the appoint
ment of incompetent assessors men
. who either copy former books, or
value without judgment (thus leav
ing it open to the views of an ap
peal board) or take such values as
tire givcu them ; which methods may
raise a question in the minds of the
honest and conscientious man as to
whether he is fairly dealt by.
THJJ SUNKEN SpHOONER.
On Friday night, between 12 and
1 a.m., as the schooner Kaala was
passing Kawaihoa, Coco Head, go
ing to Koolau with coal, lumber, &c,
Bhe was run into by the schooner
Jennie Walker and sunk. The Jennie
Walker was coining down, "wing
and wins," with a heavy load of
sugar from Hilo. The captain of
the Kaala says that his boat was on
the port-tack across the Oahu and
Molokai channel, with side-lights
set. He had just changed watch
with his mate when the look-out re
ported a schooner coming down on
them. It struck them in the fore
rigging, tho Jennie Walker's flying
jibboom going through tho Kaala's
jib. They lay together a few min
utes and the anchor of the other
Bchopner did the damage. The Kaala
went down head first, and the cap
,tain and crew climbed into the
Jennio Walker. Tho Jennie Walker
lowered her sails after it was too
lute. The weather was clear. There
were Ave on board tho Kaala. Two
valuable English pointers and a lot
of fancy poultry for Mr. H. Macfar
lane's ranch at Ahuimauu were lost
with her. The captain of the Jennie
' Walker says that no lights were seen
& no Jignis were seen
-on the Kaala,
Tlio jcnmc wuueer
received some slight damage.
