"o act of the present Ministry has
shown its cakness so much as the
recent appointments of Assessors.
It is quite true the appointments for
last year were no belter as a loss
of revenue to the Government
showed there being a falling off of
some bixty thousand dollars from
the ruto of increase of former years.
There was this difference however,
last year they had former books to
copy from, which many did; this
year the new law goes into effect.
Is there one intelligent person whp
will say that they (with the exception
of four or five) arc able to compre
hend tho law, or that they have
judgment to assess property of
large and mixed value.
Of course some people may not
care what kind of assessois are ap
pointed as they can do as tho people
of the Ililo district did last year
appeal in a body and get tho assess
ment reduced to any sum they
choose to name. But how does this
affect the conscientious man who con
siders it his duty to give in an hon
est and fair valuation of his proper
ty. He must cither pay more than
his share, or decline to give in any.
One stranscc matter is that the same
assessor is appointed for the Ililo
Then is nothing that can weaken
a Government so much as to place
people in positions they cannot fill,
liaising and spending the revenues
of the Government at the present
time is looked upon with distrust b'
our best people simply for that rea
son. What will result from this
feeling of distrust no one can tell,
but the outlook is not reassuring.

Again an instance of carelessness Is
noted by the Police. A firm otiiQucen

noon without securely fastening- it Of
course if anything had been stolen the
puzzle would have been how did the
burglars open the door.
Thu time fixed for Oahu College

the Y. M. C. A. Hail, which was well
attended. Uufoitunatcly we icceived
no notice of it and me therefore unable
to give a report of it.
Tin: Likelike will leave for Hilo on
Monday ncxt at 4 p.m. instead of on
Tuesday and will stay over at Hilo for 2
days. This will give all persons desir
ing to visit the Volcano an oppoitunily
to go and return the same week. "Wo
understand the Sugar Commissioners
intend making the trip.
Wi: learn that it is the intention of the
Post Olllce authorities to suspend a
powerful cil lamp in the' verandah of
that building so arranged as to
bum nil night. Jt seems strange
that the Post Ofllco should have to do
tills when the streets ought to be well
enough lighted without, but then tho
Legislature -thought we hud enough
lamps in Honolulu already perhaps.
A little Instance of a man's ingenuity
in evading the bridge-tax al the Kates
on Monday was told us yesterday. Ho
was driving one of the ordinary wagons
such as grocers unci sodawatcr fac
tories use to convey their goods. He
arranged with his passengers to lie
down in the wagon and then covered
them over with a blanket and drove
them oter as i-o much sodawatcr.
Tun item which wu published yester
day morning showing the falling off iu
the natural source of the water supply
of this town is certaiuly one calculated
to eaurso tho gravest alarm. Slowly
but surely tho water In tho natural
underground reservoir from which our
urte-siun wells draw their supplies is
diminishing, and the amount luih
decreased ho much as not only to dry
up some springs and lessen the supply
of all the others, hue to lower the
height at w hleh artesian wells w 111 How
by about one foot. The matter demands
the sei Ions and instant attention of the
Government to dovlsu means for adding
to our water supply and checking the
waste from uucappvil artesian wells, for
If something in not douo wo shall shortly

lilted for il than the gentleman who
tilled the ofllco for the past tWelvo
month apparently to the sitlsftiotlou
of the Gazette for It said nothing about
it. But Sir. Haysoldon Is a relative by
marriage of Mr. Gibson and therefore
the Gazette condemns htm. This 1
Unfair. We, even moru'linnthc Gazette,
object to Mr. Gibson's policy In cen
tralizing the Government functions in
ills own hands and going against the
dcslies of the best part of the communi

thing Ujat lie docs simply because he
does It without weighing whether it is
good or not llrsl.
Tin: following dccilptlou of Her laic
Highness Ruth Kecllkolaui's coflln may

made by Mr. C. E. "Williams from choice
specimens of Kou and Koa woods, pa
nelled and beaded, the light Koa being
used for the panels and thu Kou forthe
iclief work. It was 8ft. long by 2ft. 8
in. wide and art. 4in. deep and contained
n lealcn coflln in which were the ie
mains. On tho lid wcr.i two small hand,

the silver ornamentation made by Mr.
"Wcnner. On the upper one w as the half of
a Hawaiian crown surrounded by a coid

lower one had on it a silver shield-shaped
plate beating the following inscription

This was ornamented with faithfully
and chastely cngiaved copies of fern,
maidenhair, malic, kukui, and bread
Stewiso into Messrs Lycan & John
son's yesterday wo noticed some novel
tics which we would de-ire our readers
to go and see. Firt conies a handsome
picture painted by Mr. Strong of Lung
ford jr. on the track i.t full speed. Next
come specimens from the studios of all
our local artists, including Mr. Fur
neaux, Mr. Strong, Mr. Delanux etc.
Then tome handsome specimens of Bur
lotlne ware in the shape of porcelain
flowers one specimen of which, a n i
ror wiih a spray of loses over it, was ex
ccedinglv handsome. Sotno new designs
in Majolica from Cincinnati were also
admirable and a lamp globe with a map
of the world makes a novel addi
tion to the study. Some new lots of rat
tan furniture including children's chairs
and rockers and the linc&t assortment of
picture frame mouldings on the islands
in all the newest styles complete the list.
Go and sec them.

To thu Honolulu Puumc: Al the An
nual -Meeting of tho Hoard of Represen
tatives ol the Honolulu Fire Department
hejd on the 7th inMnnt, the subject of
boii'fircs and trash-burning- on private
propei ty, within or near Uie city limits
was discussed from a Fireman's stand
point, and, n3 might have been expected,
it. called forth some rather harsh com
ments on those who have during the
past year, either through thoughtless,
ness or indifference, been the cause of
useless efforts aud loss of time of, the
Department and wear and tear of its ap
paratus, by kindling bonfires without
notice, aud selecting it would seem in.
tentionally the limes when they would
cause the most alarm and unnecessary
work and trouble.
It was flnnlly decided to authorize the
Chief-Engineer to make a public appeal
to the property holders and residents of
the city irencrally. requesting them to in
form either the Fire Marshal or himself
a reasonable time beforehand of the ex.
act time, and place of any intended Bon.
fire or Trash-busning in order that false
alarms from these causes be prevented
Some of our citizens have already
been considerate in the matter and.givcn
dun notice, as above requested, but the
custom is oy no means general.
This appeal is made with a degree of
dlllldence, as the members of the De
partment remember with pleasure and
gratitude that they, as a body, have been,
dealt generously with in the past by tho
past by the goodpeople of this city, and
they hope to merit a like consideration
iu the future; at the same time they en
tertain a measure of confidence, that tho
reasonableness of their request will ho
admitted, and a hearty compliance there
We have at piesent in round numbers
three hundred active members; a largo
majority of whom depend for their live
lihood of their families and themselves
on their daily wages; and while they do
not hesitate to spend their time and
strength or risk life and limb for tho
benefit of their fellow-citizens when oc
casion may require it, yet there is noth.
ing more disheartening and destructive
oi discipline and promptitude in the in
dividual tiremen themselves, and annoy.
ing to Iheir employers than to find, after
a long and fatiguing run with heavy ap.
paratus, their efforts and time have
ueen thrown away in consequence of a
caieless and'wanton false alarm.
