Yesterday stock in the Hawaiian Hell
Telephone Company was offered at $13,
co we aic infoimcd.
We deeply logret to record the death
of Mr. Hcney Whitney, who died about
10 o'clock last night.
The annual public examinations
of the above well known institution
took place at Lahaina the 12lh and
13lh inst. Among the blanches of
study in which the students were
examined, were Geography, Arith
metic, Algebra, Geometry, Trigon
ometry, History, Theology, English
Giammar, etc.. The classes did
veiy fair work, and, on the whole,
showed satisfactory progress, par
ticulaily in their intelligent and
correct use of the English language.
This was paiticularly noted by those
who have visited this and other
schools in founcr veais. Another
marked f calm c of the work at La
haina, is the attention given to vocal
music, as was shown by the songs
interspersed throughout the examina
tions. Among the spectators were
Inspector Gen. Boldwin, Kev. A. O.
Foibes, Mrs. Thurston, Dr. and
Mis. Cnipcntcr, and otlieis.
Rhetorical excicises followed at
Waincc Chin ch, Lahaina, on the
14th. These were very enjoyable,
with the reservation that some of
the youthful orators seemed to forget
the bie of the loom in which they
were speaking. At the close
diplomas were piesented to Messrs.
Bobeit Waialeale, II. M. Nuwni,
Malakaua Elia, and Mosc3 Mehcula,
all of whom have completed the
requited course of study in good
standing. Some other members of
the class will probably lcccivc diplo
mas at a later date.
g$ School opens again on the 10th
of September, when another tiinl of
an industrial department will be
made. Lumber and tools for a
carpenter shop have already been
sent by the Boaid of Education,
and are now on the ground.

ORIENTAL TELEFHCKE COMPANY.
Hetc is another financing Tele
phone Company. This Company
started with :i capital of :)00,000.
It w as sigieed in the prospectus that the
vendors thciild setcive X'.'iO.OOO in
cash aud 100,000 in defeired sliutes.
Tins amount was paid for n conces
sion to establish telephones in
Alexandria and Cairo, for a share in
n telephonic exchange in the
Sandwich Wands, and for sonic tele
phonic apparatus in India, woith
about 1,000. To whom the purchase-money
ically went is not very
clear. "Writing Feb. 14, 1881, to
Pender, M. P., chairman of the
Oriental Company, Mr. Gardiner
Hubbard, one of the names which
iiguies in the prospectus amongst
the vendors, and who is a Director
of the Oriental Company, says:
" The Interest of the crdors in the
Oriental Telephone Company is divided
'lo the Hell intciest two-tilths
Edison ., . ...two-llfth
Scotch ., .... one-fifth
"The Hell interest is Mibdbided into
tenths; each tenth thcrcfoie represents
0,000 shares. The uichasc-nioucy of
150,000 will be dhided as follows:
Shires 100,000, cash i.T.0,000, total
150,000, less the amount already ex
pended for the staff, instruments, and
patents, which is from 12,000 to 1.
000. I h ive icervetl one of these tenths
of the Bell iuteiest for Captain James
Subsequcntcly the purchase price
was i educed to 7o,000 in shares,
aud 10,000 in cash.
The capital of the Company con
sequently now consists of 220,000
shares of 1 each, on which 10s. has
been paid, and of 75,000 deferred
shares. The main business of the
Company has been to promote suIh
Companies. It lias leceived 30,
000 in cash, and 30,000 of shares
of a sub-Company for Egypt and
for Calcutta. But it may be asked,
what has it got to sell? The light to
use telephone instruments which are
neither better nor worse than many
othcis which produce the same
result. The shares of the Oriental
Company aie at a piemiuni of about
CO per cent, and unless Egyptians
and Indians arc. to be accounted
such utter fools as to pay the Com
pany for what is, piactically free to
the Oriental world, the shaics cannot
be worth . paiyt considering the
ingenuous manner in which a con
siderable amount of the money
subscribed , by jfhc public to the
Company has been divided amongst
financiidists. London Truth.
