THE MASS MEETINC
Was held ou Monday evening in the
Armory, Hou. G. W. Pilipo in the
chair. Messrs. W. R. Castle and A.
K. Kutmiakea were elected Vice
Presidents, Messrs B. "W. Kawainui
and L. 6. Thurston, Secretaries.
Hon. G. W. Pilipo, in opening
the meeting, said they would speak
first concerning the Pacific Mail
Co.'s contract with the Government,
and then on the necessity for elect
ing independent candidates.
The meeting, comprising over 200
people, was addressed by Mr. Kalua,
Mr. S. B. Dole and Hon. G. W.
Pilipo on behalf of the opposition,
and by Mr. Kaulukou for the Gov
ernment. Mr, Kaulukou was applauded, in
the course of his remarks, by a
small Body in the corner of the room,
apparently soldiers, judging from
their regular tramp, and among them
Mr. J. S. Webb and Mr. Testa of
..the Foreign Office were conspicuous.
Hon. G. W. Pilipo, who followed
Mr. Kaulukou, was loudly applauded
at the conclusion of his address, and
the following resolutions were
passed. One man only, who held
up both hands, dissented to the last
Whereas, We are informed that an
unfavorable sentimeut lias grown up, at
Washington, against our Government,
In consequence of the want of good faith
shown by His Majesty's Minister of
Foreign Affaire toward the raeilic Mail
Steamship Co., iu the matter of the
contract for bringing immigrants from
r China, thereby jeopardising our treaty
relations with the Uuited States, and
the independence of our Government;
Wueiieas, The past administration
of affairs by the present Cabinet has
. .impoverished the treasury, and brought
.'the King and Government into disre
pute, at homo and abroad; be it
1. That we the citizens of Honolulu,
in public meetiug assembled, hereby
condemn the action of the cabinet in
the matter of the said contract with the
Pacific Mail Steamship Co.
2 That we hereby express our utter
want of confidence in the present eab
3 That in the need of thecountry for
independent legislators, we" hereby
nominate and recommend to the voters
of the district of Honolulu, as candi
dates for the next election of represen
tatives, the names of Joseph O. Carter,

The following committee was then

&,dates: John Kalaina, S. B. Dole,

THE PLANTERS LABOR AND SUPPLY
7Held a lengthy meeting yesterday
- 'Cwhen the subjects of New Hebrides
x;;and Portuguese immigration were
fully discussed. A strong feeling
'rfftyraa expressed in favor of the con-
fekf!tinuaucc of the introduction of Pbr-
.t; -tugnese immigrants as being most
Wjfjs , beneficial to the country, both as la-
fc, ;. borers and population. Matters re
lating to the treaty were also fully
1 , -ventilated. A comparison was made
, of the cost of the South Sea Islanders
gi, received by the Julia and the
h-'.'.aiazard, the former costing 8115
eacu, and the latter nearly $200;
if the Hazard had been able to ob
tain u full complement of men, their
cost would have been less than those
received by the Juliu. No action
vwas taken concerning their further
" introduction, but Captain Tierney's
i-.'report was received. Mr. A. Hoff-
.Vnung was present to explain his
idens on the subject of Portuguese
immigration, Mr. A. F. Cooke and
'Captain Tierncy being present for a
'similar purpose with respect to
.South Sea Island laborers. Mr.
,J;Hoff tiling's proposals were approved,
Gand it was reported that several
VJuindred Portuguese had been applied

It is unusual to hear that, a Chinaman
has Insured his life, and It. is still more
unusual to hear of such prompt pay
ment of claims as the following. On
lGth February, Leo Loy, who was doing
business In lillo. Insured his life In the
Equitable Life Assurance Company for
83,000, under the fifteen year endow
ment plan. He. paid a year's premium
and died In September. On !Ust October.
Mr. A. J. Cartwrlglit, the Honolulu
agent of tlio Company, sent, to the head
olllce In New York, proof of Lee Loy's
death; the matter having been placed
in his hands two days previously. On
4th December, thirty four days after the
papers left Honolulu, the wife of the
deceased gave a receipt for $!),000, the
full amount of her claim, the money
having been sent from New York and
handed to her. This Instance not only
shows the benefit of Life Assurance, but,
also the very prompt manner in which
settlements are made by the Kqultablc
Lifo Assurance (. ompany, which did
not even avail Itself of the power to
withhold payment for sixty days, in a
policy which had not been In force for
three" years. 570 lw b
MR. GIRVIN'S CASE. .
Editor Bulletin: The dismissal
of Mr. Girvin, from his appointment
as school agent at Wailuku, has
received considerable attention in
the papers. I wish to correct some
statements that have been made. 1st
Mr. Walker was present at the
meeting of the Board, at which the
proprictry of removing him was dis
cussed. 2nd I believe that com
munications had been sent to Hono
lulu, reccommending his removal.
3rd I think the Gazette obtained its
information from Mr. Girvin himself,
and not iu any way from the Educa
tion Olllce. Fair Play.
Our correspondent's letter was
somewhat lengthy, but the above
are his main points, The, Secretary
of the Board of Education informs
us that authority was given to the
President of the Board of Education,
six weeks before Mr. Girvin's re
moval, to use his judgment in the
matter, in consultation with the
Inspector of Schools. Ed. D. Bi
