A FAREWELL ALOHA.
In layitig down the editorial pen
and shears 1 wish to say a few final
words to my readers who have great
ly helped me in my labours by their
continued support and friendly
criticism. It has been an arduous
task to raise a daily paper from a
mere record of local items to the
position of a definite exponent of
public opinion. It would have been
impossible but for the kind assistance
and criticism of those friendly to the
BulletiXi To enumerate their
names would require too large a
share, if not the whole, of our space
and many of them arc of too retiring
a nature to feel gratified with the
publicity that putting their names
in the columns of a newspaper would
Their number is however far too
reat to allow of an individual and
personal letter of thanks but I take
this method of thauking them col
lectively and individually for their
continued kindly and generous
feelings in the past and of expressing
the hope that nothing will ever
occur to mar or strain these kindly
relations in the future.
Much criticism on the Bulletin
has been, from time to time, inser
ted in the other newspapers of Ho
nolulu. A great deal of it, I be
lieve, has been the honest expression
of the opinions of those inserting it
but more has been induced by the
idea that this paper ought to follow
slavishly in the footsteps of one or
other of the political parties already
existing and because it has not done
ho but bestowed its praise and cen
sure on any given act or statement
without regard to party considera
tions it has been blamed and dis
honest motives insiuuated as the
cause. Those who have personally
known of the facts have never be
lieved so and I rest convinced no
right-minded person will believe such
an insinuation. The Bulletin dur
ing the past year has never favored
either one party, or the other, or
any section of either, from any other
motive than those of doing the
jugiit by every one as it would wish
them to return the compliment.
I have only to again express my
cordial aloha to all the patrons of
the Bulletin and to assure them
of its continuance in the part of
G. Caiison Kr.NYON.
A LEAKY SHIP.
The Martha Hideout now in port
discharging coal is, to all appear
ance, an old rotten vessel. If the
statements of those on board her
be correct she is such. On the voy
age from Newcastle to Tahiti she
leaked badly all the way. "With donkey-engine
going night and day she
had four feet of water in the hold.
During her long stay in port at
Tahiti the pumps had to be kept
going niglit and day. On the voy
age from Tahiti up, after 800 tons of
coal had been taken out and she had
been repaired as well as could be,
coppered over felt, etc., 'the donkey
engine was used all day and the
crew pumped at night. The crew
were all discharged or deserted at
Tahiti and a new crew engaged.
When she was there the crew sent a
surveyor on board who condemned
her. The captain had another who
reported that if 300 tons of coal
were taken out and she was repaired
she could make the voyage to Hono
A RUNAWAY AND A SPILL.
Mr. Antonc, an elderly Portu
guese, living near the "What Cheer
House, whose chief occupation is
making and selling manienio hay,
was returning from town to his home
Avith an almost empty wagon, last
Friday morning. AVheu opposite
the lower end of Liliha Street, his
horse took fright at a cloud of dast,
and bolted along the Palama road.
The old gentleman's utmost efforts
to stop the affrighted animal were
ineffectual, but he kept on tugging
at the rcius until near the second
bridge, when, by a sudden swerve
of the wagon, he was violently pre
cipitated headlong to the ground.
The horse and vehicle proceeded in
the direction of home at even greater
speed than before, whilst Antonc lay
on the road in an unconscious con
dition and apparently lifeless. Good
Samaritans were near at hand, who
removed him to the nearest shade
and bathed his bruised head with
cold water. On recovering con
sciousness he was more anxious to
know what had become of the horse
and wagon than concerned about
his own bodily injuries. Within a
half an hour after the occurrence of
the accident Antonc was seen sealed
in the same wagon and driving the
same horse, as if nothing unusual
Treason & Magnanimity,
KAMEHAMEHA THE GREAT !
When Kamehameha conquered
Oahu though he had firmly estab
lished himself all the chiefs had not
reconciled themselves to his rule.
Kamehameha however adopted the
plnn of making the women chiefs
and not allowing their husbands to
receive the taxes. lie also selected
the handsomest ami smartest women
as spies who used to report to him
all that wenjb on their districts. One
of these female spies reported to him
that the chiefs of 7i'c, Waianac,
and IVaialuu, were conspiring
against him and were to meet on a
given night at Puuloa (Pearl River, )
then the favorite spot with the
chiefs of those districts, to finally
settle on their plans.
Kamehameha was then living at
Pulaholaho, afterwards known as
Charlton Square, the block now
bounded by Merchant, Kaahumanu,
Queen, and Nuuanu Street. It was
then supper-time and he excused
himself from supper and , taking his
famous spear of peculiar make, Ka
ihc o Kamehameha the like of
which no other Hawaiian had, he
started off striking across the har
bour at Ifapuukolo (near Emmes
boat-building establishment,) to Ko
holdloa, along a fishpond wall to
Kiilao7caiwiula, (the plains uear
Kalihi), then swimming the Kalihi
passage and wading till he came to
Ahua (the sand beach below Mo
anahui), then to the Pearl River
and swimming across to Puuloa.
He thus made a bec-linc from E. to
W. over land and sea alone without
a single attendant. Nothing stopped
him. Here he went from halau to
halau, (the halau is a large meet
ing house), until he came to the
place where all the Chiefs were in
side plotting treason against him.
After listeuing long enough to learn
all their plans he stuck his spear,
point downwards, in the sand about
4 feet from the door and returned
as he came alone.
When the chiefs awoke next morn
ing and went out they saw the spear.
Said they, "The great chief has been
here. Here is his spear. He knows
all." So in accordance with the
ancient Hawaiian custom of those
who feared for their lives, they went
to Honolulu and crawled in on their
hands and knees into the presence
of Kamehameha saying "E ola uu."
(Let me live.) And Kamehameha
granted their prayer and had the
satisfaction of knowing ever after
that they were faithful to him.
