The Minister of the Interior, in
consequence of the disclosures re
cently made by the Bulletik with
, reference to the charges levied upoli
Chinese immigrants, wisely deter
to, mined to call for lenders for lauding
the Potuguese, that have just
arrived by the Bell Rock, and for
supplying them with provisions.
Sis tenders were received, two of
them only being for landing the
immigrants. One gentleman ten
dered for both services, and his bid
being the lowest throughout, was)
accepted. This gentleman, Mr.
Jonathan Tucker, undertakes the
whole of the landing for 125, less
than nine cents a head. This
includes the cost of transportation
of passengers and baggage to the
depot. Here is a remarkable case.
.Hitherto no tenders for such work
were ever called for, and it was done
by Dick, Tom, Harry, Fred, Jack
or Bill at whatever prices, and in
whatever manner they pleased. If
Minister Gulick can now get the
" work well done for nine cents a head,
w why is it that previous Ministers
could not have got it clone at the
, same rate? They never tried to do
so and they never called for tenders.
The reason is well known. We
congratulate the present M inister of
the Interior and President of the
Board of Immigration upon the step
that he has just taken, and hope
that he will continue his work of
much-needed reformation by ascer
taining first, how much was pre
viously paid for similar work, second,
how much such work cost, third, to
whom the money was paid, fourth,
how much was made out of each job,
,S.J and, fifth, last but not least, why
i the Government officials, who ap
parently broke the law, by not render
ing on account of their steward-ship
to the Auditor-General, are allowed
to remain unpunished.
Thursday night's free entertain
ment at the Y.M.C.A. was again
well attended every seat in tho hall
being occupied, and two thirds of
those present being men. The read
ings selected were rather lengthy,
and it would be well in future to
curtail them as much as possible.
The heroines of the evening were
Miss Hopper, who kindly presided
, at the piano, Mrs. Hastie whoso re
citation of ''The Lady of Provence"
was a master-piece, and Mrs. Cru
zan who, in addition to her reading,
sang "The Clang of the Wooden
Shoon" which received a well de
served encore, to which she res
ponded with "Twickenham Ferry."
Tho heroes were Mr. J. S. Ross
who gave "The Old Sexton" in such
an excellent manner, (save for a
.slight huskincss apparent in his up
per notes) that he, at tho desiro of
the audience, repeated ono verse,
and Mr. Cruzan, who, with his cus
tomnrj' modesty, placed himself last
on the programme, and, having ob-
ltained to a great extent the able as
sistance of his wife, excused him
self from his proposed invitation of
asking the audience to
thing," but extended
to a future occasion.
HISTORY OF A DRESS.
The following is a specimen of the
composition of ono of the pupils at
the Fort Street Public School, and
was taken promiscuously from the
.work of the whole clans. Wothink
it worthy of reproduction. It is
pubHjShed' as originally written !
I am a wollcit dress, and the first
thing I over heard about my-solf Wus
that I was on a lamb's back keeping
him warm. This lamb was an orphan,
his mother died when quite young.
and he was taken to his master's
house, and there the children ployed
with him. Every night, ho waj put
into a box by the stove, until ho
gicw so large, that he was put in
with the rest of the sheep. After a
while, this lamb hecamo as large as
any sheep there, and in spring ho
had all Ins wool cut off, and I was
made of this wool.
First this wool was washed, and
cleaned, then carded, and made into
thread, woven iuto cloth, dyed black,
pack'-d in a box, and sent to Eng
land. Then I was out by a Dress
Maker into a dress for a lady, who
said, that she would, call for mo in a
few days ; but she did not call for a
long time, so the Dress-Maker sold
me to another lady.
After a while, I became a little
worn, and finally I was cut over for
her daughter, who wore me to school.
At last, I was used m a Tag, and
put into a ragbasket. I was theni
taken to a paper factory where I was
made into paper, packed and sent to I
the Hawaiian Islands. I was bought
by a boy, who took me to school,
and wrote a composition on me, after
which I was thrown away.
THE BELL ROCK.
The following account of the Bass
Rock, a sister ship of the Bell Rock,
which is taken from a Hull paper
gives an exact-and accurate descrip
tion of the vessel now lying in this
harbor, as they were built on the
same model and arc alike, in every
The Bass Rock, built by Mr. D.
P. Garbutt, of null, went on her
trial trip, starting from the Albert
Dock and going as far as Dimling-1
ton and back. The Bass Rock', of
whose launch some time ago a report
has already appeared in our co
lumns, has a length of 340 ft. and aj
breadth of 42 ft., and 28 ft. 8 in. in
depth of hold, thus being one of the
lamest and finest vessels ever built
in Hull. She was constructed under
special survey, to class 100 Al at1
Lloyd's, and also under the special
survey of the Board of Trade, and
will have the passenger certificate of
the latter. She has an extra num
ber of transverse bulkheads; and
several parts of the ship exceed in
strength the requirement of Lloj'd's
and the Board of Trade. Special
arrangements have been made to
adapt herior the carriage of troops,
horses, or cattle. Her dead weight
capacity is about 5,000 tons, ,and,
her measurement nearly 7,000 tons.
The numerous fittingsrincludo steam
steering gear, one of Hurfield's pa
tent windlasses, and five steam wiu
ches, supplied by Messrs. Good and!
Menfcies, Hull. There have also
been furnished two fresh water con-'
deusers, capable of producing 2,000
gallons of water every 24 hours.
The Bass Rock is propelled by a
pair of compound inverted direct
acting engines. The diameter of
the cylinders is 44 and 84 inches,
respectively, with 54 in. length of
stroke, She is fitted with two double,
ended steam boilers, 14 ft. 9 in. in
diameter, and 18 ft. long. Steam
is supplied at a working pressure ' of,
80 lbs. per square inch. The heat
ing surface is 7,520 square feet, and
the cooling surface 4,520 square
feet. The diameter of the propeller
is 7 ft.,.6 in., and 23 ft. G'in. pitch,
and fitted with four moveable blades.
The trial trip was most satisfactory
to every one concerned. Tho wea
ther was exceedingly favourable. At
58 revolutions and 27A in vacuum,
and 77 lbs. of steam, she attained a
speed of 18 knots, the indicated
horse-power being 1,980. This was,
of course, with the vessel light, and'
it is expected that when tho pro
pellor is more submerged, and freer
action is attained by the
still better results will ensue
Editoii Bulletin: We people on
the other islands complain hitterly of
tho had state of tho roads, and often
ask what hecomes of the appropria
tions for Roads and Bridges? In
looking over the nppropriatipns made
by tho last Legislature for roads and
bridges on tho other islands, one is
puzzled to know how bucIi large sums
of money have been expended if thoy
have been expended at all. Tho so
called 'Government roads on north
and south Koua arc a disgrace to .the
nation ; in fact, roads there arc none,
nor has any attempt been made to
make them. Tho mode of road
making around Kona is simply to
collect a few jitons and lay them in
two lines leaving a space of about
three feot between them; grading,
or removing clinkers or bouldors, or
filling up holes, being entirely out of
the question. It cannot bo for the
lack of material that such tracks are
allowed to disgraco tho country, as in
Kail, between Hilca and Honuapo, is
one of the finest roads ever made,
but it was not made by the Govern
ment. From Kawaihao to Pahala
it is ono mass of stone, lava, and
black sand, and with proper super
vision tho most substantial roads
could be built for very little money.
But it seems that the contracts for
road-making are sub-let, and sub-let,
and sub-lot again, until there is only
sufficient monev to nav ono man to
lay a few stones in tho maimer I havo
described. I am,
