A PROBABLE NUISANCE.
Three or four years ago, the
manufacture of poi, in the ncigli
botuliooil of Honolulu, was entirely
in the hanils of native Ilawaiians. It
is now almost as exclusively en
grossed by Chuiaracn. With the
chnngo of manufacturers there lias
also been a change of base of opera
tions. The natives mostly cooked
and denned their taro and prepared
the poi outside of the city limits,
bringing the munufaetured article
into town for sale. The Chinamen,
or many of them, locate their manu
factories right in the thickly popu
lated parts of the city, there
conducting the entire process of
manufacture. This is a matter which
may require the watchful attention
of those whose duty it is to guard
the public good ; for the refuse of
tnro, if not .properly disposed of,
soon creates a nuisance, poisoning
the at-.-.lospherc and endangering
health. In certain parts of the city
'the exhalation of putrefying taro
skins already impregnates the air,
and is readily detected
oricB familiar with tiic
wash-houses within the city arc
considered public nuisances, how
much more should poi-factories be
regarded in that light.
Woul has arrived from Ewa of the
capture of three specimens of
juvenile depravity last week. About
three weeks ago three boys, the
oldest being about twelve years of
aje, disappeared from their homes.
When they were captured it was dis
covered that they had spent the
time in a large tract covered with
algaroba trees ; living by shooting
chickens belonging to a Chinaman
and robbing watermelon patches.
One of them used to go up every
day to Ills aged grandfather's place
in the mountains and return with
poi. They liiul stolen from their
rcpcclivc parents three guns and
ainniunition with which they shot
the chickens and had also acquired
a large iron pot in which, when they
were discovered, were found live
chickens ready for cooking. One
of the boys was a Portuguese the
other two were natives. The parents
punished them on their being taken
homo. It seems as if the boys of
this country will soon learn to
emulate the deeds of those of older
and wilder regions.
THE MUSIC HALL
was sold at auction on Saturday, at
12 noon, by Messrs. Lyons and Lovpy.
Quite a number of our most promi
nent citizens, and many of the share
holders were present. The bidding
opened at 815,000, and went up by
bids of 81000 to 817,000 when itwent
up by bids of $.r00 to 821,000. It
hung at this a little while and 821,
100 was bid, then $21,2f0, and
finally 821,500 at which price it was
knocked down to Mr. W. G. Irwin.
It was bold subject to the King's
rights to liis box. Only two parties
seemed to be bidding.
