It has been a matter of much
comment of late that our harbour,
small as it is, is gradually filling up.
There is never a steamer of any
size comes in but stirs up the mud
so that the water can be seen dis
colored for hours afterward.' Several
times vessels being hauled into the
wharves have fetuck in the mud.
Every year too the detritus from
Nuunnii Stream fills up the Harbor.
.lust below the "Water Works olllce
there is an escape-pipe into the har
bor. Less than twelve-months ago,
the harbor bottom was never bare
there even at low tide. Now, a
greater area of decomposing mud is
exposed to the air at low tide every
Many years Dr. Judd, we believe,
in pursuance of some plan for im
provements built n wall of stone
across the mouth of Nuunntt stream
thus preventing it from its natural
office of sweeping out to sea the
refuse draining into the harbour
from day to day. Wo have thus
lost our natural harbour-cleaner. To
remedy this loss and to take away
the constantly accumulating refuse
of this constantly growing city wc
need the dredge set to work. Three
fourths of the biennial period have
almost passed and yet nothing has
been done in the matter.

LIHUE ENGLISH SCHOOL.
On Friday July, 27th, the exhibi
tion of work done in this school for
the past year took place. The oc
casion was the more interesting as it
was the occasion of saying farewell
to the retiring principal Mr. A.
Moore who lias been promoted to
a similar position ntWailuku. The
schoolroom was nicely decked, and
the scliolnrs assembled were arrayed
neatly ami decorously. No less than
71 declamations were given by the
various pupils, not one of whom
failed in a single instance a matter,
perhaps, which could not bo said of
another group of pupils in the King
dom. The limits of our space pre
clude us from giving any detailed
account of this enormous pro
gramme. At the close of the ex
ercises, kind farewells were said to
M r. Moore coupled with good wishes
for his continued prosperity and
