They had only learned from a pub

have nothing to do with them, and
that Miss Breeso and other ladies

objecting to the prices. A bill for
express hire $1.50 was ordered to be
paid. An acrimonious discussion
took place over a bill for $15, for
beds and bedding, which was sub
mil ted without the name of the
person from whom the goods wcie
purchased. It transpired that Mr.
Crowley was the vendor, but Mr.
Kohm's name was inserted in the
bill. A bill of 2.50 from Peter Lyon,
for a week's rent of the armoivy,
was ordered to be paid, after a
suggestion had been made that it be
sent to Governor Dominis.

Mr. Godfrey (who had just enter

Mr. Kohmjind never made an appli

was Secrctpy, and that he had ic
proved Mpvohm for not doing so,
and Mr. Kohm said the organization
might find fault with him if he did.
Mr. Kohm then said that he didn't
remember the conversation with Mr.
Godfwvy, but he had been to Mr.
mid Mr. Cruzan.
Mr. Ciowley then made a speech
on the Chaitist movement in
England. Mo was going to bring
nsseitions, concerning the-Germans,
on oath hefoin the world. He was
willing to htaml in a minority like
the woild'b heiocs, and hoped some
day to form a Mechanics Institute.
Mr. Maichand read a sensible
paper explaining his views of the
duties of the organignlion, and
objecting to socialism being dis

appealed to the meeting who ordered
it to be submitted.
The President at once resigned,
Mr. Ward's motion was carried, and
some members regretted the resigna

general feeling was that it was a
good thing for the Union.
Mr. Daniclcwiez made a brief
address saying he would never give
up his noble cause and never com

The road in that part of the dis
trict is far from being as bad as it is
represented by "Voice of Ilccia
Residents." It is true, however,
that " this road is constantly being
traveled over by the plantation carts
daily," and it is principally owing
to their traveling over it, during the
rainy season, that it is in such a
poor condition. It is true also,
" that heavy road taxes are paid in
the neighborhood;" and they are
spent very judiciously by the gov
ernment, through our competent
Road Supervisor, Mr. T. Loyd. It

Kditou Buj.rxTix: 1 wish to jus
tify my actions concerning the case
of the wives of the German laborers,
now confined hi Honolulu jail.
When my attention was called to
that case, I had received about a
dozen letters from different paitics,
all stating that those women were in
actual need and that their situation
was a pitiful one.
I knew that these unfortunate
women were " quasi " victims of nn
almost heartless neglect on tho part
of their natural supporters, but, as
it was claimed that they were in dis
tress, I concluded that a delay
would only increase the calamity.
1 know that n German Benevolent
Society was in existence, j.nd learned
that their constitution only provided
for members, and that they would
have to call a "special meeting."
1 also went to see members of the
Illumine Society, and whs ndvisctl to
investigate the matter before it should
bo put before that society at a special

My intention was to act and that
immediately. 1 did so on impulse, not
by the advice of others, and if there
is any blaino, such blame must fall
on my '.boulders. At a meeting of
tho " W. M. U., " 1 reported that I
had sent money to Kauai, relorred to
the letters mentioned above, and my
prompt action was endorsed by the
meeting. Tlnee weeks later, all these
women and children came down un
expectedly, but, as they were here
and no one took charge of them, the
Union provided for their wants.
At the Inst meeting of our Union
1 confessed that I could not compre
hend the position into which men
like to place -me now and that I folt
like a school-boy, " they all say: he
has done wrong, but the poor fellow
can't see it."
With the imprisoned laborers I
have no more sympathy than they
deserve, they nic guilty of the crime
of leaving their wives and children
destitute, in oidcrto fight a princi
ple, but, if they were driven to
desperation "spmebody" must be
the cause of it.

dearer to men, than the personal
happiness of that, being, that has

The lire originated in the lower main
hold on Sunday afternoon and was
pretty much confined to that portion
of the vessel. The cargo was shipped
at Stettin, Copenhagen and Chris

CLOSE OF THE FISHERIES EXHIBITION.
Loudon, October 01. There was
an immense attendance to-day to
witness the ceremony of closing the
International Fisheries Exhibition.
Replying to an ''address and ropoi t
showing the complete success of the
Exhibition, the Prince of Wales
stated that the Queen had followed
the success of the Exhibition with
great interest and had requested him
to cx'piess her hope that it would
bo of lasting benefit to the fishing
population of the kingdom. He said
that after all the expenses bad been
paid a substantial .surplus would
icmniii, which should be devoted to
improving the welfare of the fisher
men of tiie country and promotion
of the interests of the fisheries, in
order that the calamities incident to
a fisherman's life might be alleviated.
The Prince was gratified at being
able to continue tho work of his
father in giving opportunities for the
peaceful emulation of all nations,
and thus diverting men's minds from
international rivalries by which all
suffer to those by which all gain.
He desiied to see here a hygienic
exhibition in 188 1, one of the pro
gress of inventions in 1885 and he
proposed holding here a colonial

painfully in his bed and gazing in a
vague, half-dazed way toward a
long line of antidotes oil the mantel.
"About two weeks dear," said
Mrs. Spoopcndykc, coming toward
him with a bowl of gruel and smil
