LIFE IN HONOLULU
is very imtcli complicated by the
different political parties. If A
belongs to the Ministerial party lie
is. or thinks he is, necessitated to
follow a certain course of action and
abjure intimacy with those who do
not follow the same; while 15 be
longing to the Definite Opposition
liobls the conduct and belief of A
and his coadjutors in holy horror
and will have nothing to do with him
except in the way of strict business.
It seems rather hard that such
bhould be the case but as the mem
bers of the one party pose as leprc
bcntativcs of morality and decency
while those on the other side pose
the rather, as at least, the associates
and advocates of those who do not
possess a great share of cither it is
not to be wondered at.
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT.
Last Thursday the Secretary of
the Immigration Board was surprised
by a visitor that the Depot who said
that he came to apply for the services
of a Portuguese girl. lie was asked
the usual question if he were a. single
or a married man, and replied that
lie was a widower. He was then
told that he couldn't have one as the
rules forbade allowing any to single
men. He asked if he could marry
one and was answered in the affirma
tive. His wants were made known
and in a short time a damsel was
found who was willing to marry
him, her parents consenting. The
services of a Minister were called in
requisition and the happy pair
departed after paying the bride's
passagc-money, he being uuable to
speak a word of Portuguese and she
THE FIRE AT AMAUULU PLANTATION.
According to the personal instruc
tions of Col. G. W. Macfarlanc, the
owner given about three months ago,
two watchmen have been employed
night and day in alternate watches.
Tho one on watch had gone to cnll
the other about midnight of last
Tuesday and had roused him, when,
turning round, he saw flames pro
ceeding from the rear part of the
buildings near the " cooler" rooms.
Nothing was saved except the roller
mill and the water-wheel which -were
in a detached building. Tho balance
of the machinery etc, is worthless
except as old iron.
The manager, Mr. Keinhardt, who
is now in town reports that ho baa
had no trouble with bis labour and
for this reason- is loath to ascribe
the origin of the fire to the work of
an incendiary although it did not
break out anywhere near the fur
naces or where lire was used.
A survey was held at the mana
ger's request by Messrs F. N. Ba
con, machinist and engineer, C. 15.
Richardson, sugar planter, 15. G
Hitchcock, managing owner Hitch
cock's Plantation, C. C. Kennedy,
machinist and engineer, and malin
ger of Wainkcn Sugar Mill, and S.
L, Coan, accountant, who report the
loss as total.
The insurance amounted to be
tween 815,000 and 820,000. The
value of tho mill and liuildluge was
about $35,000 which is not to be
regarded as a total loss as at the end
of this season it had already been
determined to put up a new iron
building and take down the old ones
and also to put in such machinery
as centrifugals, boilers, pumps, etc.
The present crop was estimated at
1050 tons about G50 of which had
been ground leaving about -100 yet
to bo ground. This consists prin
cipally of rnttoons and about 38
sicrcs of plant cane. Tho former,
wo hear, will not suffer by being al
lowed to stand over until the now
mill and buildings uro put up which
yvill tnku 3 or -1 months. It is a
(juctdioii, though, whether the plant
cane will be able to stand that delay
without a loss of Uo or oO per cent
on the yield.
Messrs. G. W. Macfarlanc & Co.,
have Mirlecs Watson & Go's machi
nery in stock toieplacc that destroy
ed so that the woik of lcbuilding
will be pushed forward immediately.
me losTis estimated at S'20,000
but Col. Macfarlane docs not feel in
the least downcast about it as it
was not u thing that could have
been foreseen or prevented and,
having had good fortune for same
years past, ho expects a little of the
bad now and then.

Whkx a natlv' diver employed by
Mr. Sorenson, was diving from a

Wn have to congratulate those who

that, in accordance with our repeated
suggestions, the Road Supervisor is

style so that there will be no longer a
chance of their breaking their legs or
arms when walking along at night. The
holes and excavations next the fences
are being carefully filled with rock and
over thjs a layer of soil is being laid.
It is now in order to ask the Ministry
what they arc going to do in the case of
Mr. J. Richardson, Deputy Sheriff at
Wailuku. He alleged that he was
charged with immorality and bribery
by certain newspapers, and that tho
same was libellous and damaging to his
character. In reference to the first
case a jury of twelve of his countrymen
upheld the newspaper In its charges: in
regard to the other he with threw the
suit. As he is apparently unwilling
that his innocence or guilt should be
examined into the Government' should
do It for him.
We have to recoid our objection to n
common practice which obtains in this

dismiss the article from the plane of
