1'ho appointment of Mr. Paul
Neumann as Attorney-General was
announced on Saturday. Tbe va
cancy which has existed in the Cabi
net for the Inst six months is now
filled. It is only repeating what
both the supporters and opponents
of the Government know and admit,
to say that it ought to have been
filled long ago. A competent, re
sponsible Attorney-General might
have Baved the administration many
serious mistakes and the consequent
trouble arising therefrom. Had not
the decisions of the Supreme Court
Judges, in tho matters of the Gazette
charter and the coinage, been ad
verse to the Government, the ad in
terim arrangement might still have
coutinued for an indefinite period,
to the injury of all concerned. It
is well thnt a change has come at
last, although too long delayed.
With regard to the gentleman on
whom tho appointment has been
conferred, we hope that Mr. Neu
mann will show himself an able and
conscientious public officer, and ad
vise fearlessly and independently,
according to the law and the constitution.
Is the most severe that has occurred
for ten years. The extent of the
damage will not be ascertained for
some days, though considerable
damage has already occurred. A
portion of His Majesty's boat house
was washed away on Friday night,
and, as tho building was so insecure,
all its contents were removed aud a
gang of carpenters engaged to
endeavor to make it safe. The coal
shed of Messrs. T. II. Davies & Co.,
was partly undermined and fell, and
the earth at the back of the V. M. S.
S. Co' s wharf has given way to a
great extent and is insecure. The
Mazathm was crushing her wooden
fenders to splinters on Saturday, as
.she was dashed against the dock.
The Caibarien and the Mariposa
were unable to sail ; the jetty at the
Immigration depot was washed away,
as was 200 feet of piping at Wai
kiki. A quantity of sea weed was
washed' on to the city front. King'
street, near the Chinese theater, and
the branch road to the jail were
flooded, spars and lumber being
washed on to the streets. Mr. Ames'
shipyard was flooded, his scows
being turned upside down. The
barometer which fell as low ns 29.55,
stood on Saturday morning at 29.60.

RETURN OF LABORERS.
A gentleman, who is well versed
in the Houth Sea labor traffic and its
difficulties, endorses our remarks as'
to the charges of each laborer to the
Fiji Government, ho having seen the
published official report in tho Fiji
Times. He also dwells upon the
difficulties that will be experienced
in obtaining a further supply of
labor from this source, if men arc
not immediately returned to their
liomes at the expiration of their con
tracts. The 'time for their return is
always noted, and the promptness,
of the Queensland aud Fiji Govern
ments in sending the laborers home
has had much to do with their
success in obtaining men.
Our informant says ' if the men
are not returned on time, it will be
almost useless attempting to obtain
any more, as the news of their delay
spreads rapidly from group to
group." While on this subject we
might ask, who is to bear the ex
pense of returning the South Sea
laborers, that have just arrived,
under the anspices of the P. L. and
S. Co., the clause in the contracts
enforcing their return, by that com
pany, having been omitted?
In town. The reason is, because he
has his store open every night and is
selling his toys and Christmas cards
at cost, intending to give up that
line of business. He is so rushed
by purchasers that he hasn't time to
go to his country seat. You should
see bis large family (of dolls), and
how they play with the soldiers, and
have tea parties. One room in his
store is devoted to tho display of
toyB, tho only trouble is that they
are of too varied a description to
choose from. Puzzles, cubes, tnar
' 'bles, the historical animals of Noah,
horses, railways, drums, steamers,
they are all going like ninepins. His
Dew stock of furniture and fancy
goods is not devoid of merit.
