On the 16th September Hon. A.
S. Cleghorn and Hon. Godfrey
Rhodes in a joint letter, expressed
in very cQurteous and reluctant
.terms, sent their resignations to His
Majesty as members of the Board of
Immigration. This stop was taken
by those gentlemen in consequence
of their being totally ignored with
respect to important business that
hud been transacted during the pre
vious six months without consulting
tliein, and they naturally thought that
their services were not required.
Tho published correspondence in
this week's Gazette shows that
Minister Gibson on 17th September
told Hon. A. S. Cleghorn that his
resignation as a member of the
Boaid of Immigration "involved"
the resignation of the position as
Inspector General of Immigration.
Mr. Cleghorn was appointed Inspec
tor of Immigration, "by order of the
Board of Immigration," and conse
quently his appointment could only
be cancelled by an order of the
Board. Yet no meeting of the
Board was held at the time to cancel
this appointment, and without such
authority, Mr. Gibson told Mr.
Cleghorn that, "by authority of His
Majesty" his resignation as Inspec
tor of the Board was "involved."
Mr. Cleghorn was actually appointed
Inspector more than two months
before he was appointed a member
of the Board, and this was done
when Mr. Gibson was premier,
r clearly showing that it was not
necessary for the Inspector to be
also a member of that Board. .
Because Mr. Cleghorn had shown
his displeasure at the high handed
action of Mr. Gibson, in the suspen
sion of Portuguese Immigration and
the admission of Chinese Immi
grants, without consulting the Board,
Mr. Gibson ousted him from his
position as Inspector, and quickly
filled Mr. Cleghorn's vacant position
on the Board. Why has not the
vacancy caused by the' resignation
of Hon. J. S. 'Walker, which has
existed for more than seven months,
been filled ere this? Why has not
the position, of the Hon. Godfrey
Rhodes, made vacant at the same
time as Mr. Cleghorn's, been filled?
Shall we answer these questions ? It
r is because Mr. Gibson has some
petty, personal spite against Mr.
Cleghorn and because he was an
xious, having done his utmost to
alienate the friendly feelings of all
His Majesty's true friends', to
i alienate also those of HiB Majesty's
own relations. .
Since his appointment as Inspec
tor, Mr. Cleghorn had made the
entire circuit of this group of islands
to see into the condition and re-
quirements of the immigrants. He
' also settled many disputes and
'minor matters every week, or more
' frequently, and exerted himself al
ways on behalf of the immigrants.
The true facts of the case having
been placed before His Majesty,
who did not wish to be alienated
ftf rom his relations, the Premier found
himself "involved," "involved" by
his auto-cratic letter, and "involved"
by tho non-compliance of His
Majesty, and further "involved" by
the interference of another power
behind the tin one. Tho combina
tion of these powers caused it to
devolve upon the "involved" Premier
to descend from the lofty pedestal
on which he had placed himself and
to(re-instato the Hon. Mr. Cleghorn
intlie position from which he had
been illegally ousted.

THE DILLINGHAM FURROW PLOW.
Letters patent have recently been
issued to Mr. Charles. C. Coleman,
of Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands, and
assigned to Messrs. Dillinghan &
Co., for an improved double mould
board furrowing plow, the object of
which is to make a furrow from 12
to 16 inches deep in previously
plowed and prepared land for plant
ing sugar cane. The essential feature
of the plow consists in making the
mould board so that all its horizontal
lines from the apex to the rear end
are straight instead of concave, as
heretofore made. This form presents
the same angle to the earth all the
way from front to rear, thereby
avoiding the greater angle along the
rear part, which causes the earth to
clog until the cavity is filled up to a
straight line, making the plow draw
very hard by reason of the increased
friction and of the mass of earth that
must be pushed ahead. The mould
boards are extended higher and
lower and also further back to pre
vent the earth from running back
into the furrow when plowing deeply,
and also to enable tho angles of tho
board to bo made sharper for a given
width of furrow. Tho inventor
states that ho has found, in actual
use, that tho plow readily clears
itself in soil which cakes on the
ordinary plow. (Scientific Ameri'
