DEATH OF MR. B. F. BOLLES.
The death of Mr. Benjamin F.
Bollcs has taken from our midst one
of Honolulu's lcspuctcd citizens.
For nearly forty yours he has been a
prominent merchant at these Islands.
He was born at New Loudon, Con
necticut. March 2
7, 1814, and at
tlu- time of his
death was in Ins
seventy-lirst year. On his arrival
here in 1810 he went to Lahaina,
Maui, where he carried on mercantile
business for sixteen years. From
Lahaina he moved to Honolulu in
1802 and established the well known
house of Bollcs &Co. Until the
last year or two ho has been a most
active merchant, attending with
promptness and diUigence to the
demands of business, llis habits of
early and regular attendance at his
counting room ware an example to
others. Pcibaps no one quality will
be longer remembered by his busi
ness associates than his genial tem
perament and good nature.
It has onlj been within the past
year or two that inflriuily and im
paired health gave evidence of his
age, for with his buoyant spirits,
active habits and comely person, he
appeared much younger than he
really was. He will be missed in
our bnsiiiesa and social circles.
Many warm hearts sympathise with
the bcret.ved family.

Noble JuniiisKaae doesn't say
unything, but keeps up a powerful

voluminous reports were borne into
The member from Wailuku,
Hon. W. O. Smith, must havcvbcon
napping when he arose and discoursed
solemnly on the.penaltics for tho of

discussion, was the Corporation Law,
"Wake up William.
. "Premier" eem to be an
evanescent, adjustable, now-you-sec-it,
aiid-non-yoH-ilou't .sort of title.
It has been laid aside just now ; per
haps to save awkward questions.
The Foieign Office i verily a
foreign affair, with its three clerks
and accountants, neither of whom is
a Hawaiian subject. In fact the
Minister himself gives the impres
sion that he doesn't belong there.
Noble Clcghorn has something
to say on the opium subject. His
frequent tours nbout tho Islands, as
Inspector of Immigrants, must have
given him a rare fund of information
on tho subject.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs
llcport entirely eclipses the lloyal
Speech. What was left over may
have been used to make the speech.
"What I " have done is appalling.
Theie is no question as to the
quantity of juice in the Report of
the Minister of Foreign Affairs. It
looks at first as though it would go
seven tons to the acre. But, on ex
amination the quality looks weak.
It needs clarifying.

The Report of the Minister of
Foreign Affairs was presented Sat
urday,, and contains 180 pages.
Thirty-eight pages' are devoted to
the Madras affair,, thirteen pages to
the Flowcrdew Street Railway muss,
eleven pages to correspondence con
cerning certain articles which the U.
S. Government claim should be ad

four pages to correspondence con
cerning Chinese immigrants, eleven
to extracts from letters from Curtis
Taukea, and thiity-eight pages to
the correspondence concerning the
Pacific "Mail and Oceanic S. S. Co.'s
contracts for carrying Chinese immi
grants. Mr. Cecil Brown's bill for the
registration of Chinamen provides,
among other things', that a record
should' be kept of the color of their
hair and eyes. We would suggest
as an amendment, that a record
should also be kept of the number of
fingers and toes, the shape of the
eyes, and the method of wearing the
back hair: also a provision that

Mr. lsenberg thought that if the
bill was passed, there would be a
large number of Chinese use opium
who had discontinued its use, and it
would lead other people.
Mr. Cleghorn thought it was one
of the ipost important measures that
had yet been brought before the
House, and being Saturday afternoon
he thought there was not time to
discuss it. properly, therefore he
would moved it be referred to Com
mittee on Whole and made special
order for Wednesday. Carried.
Mr. Pilipo, from Committee on
Printing reported, an Act relating
to registration and identification of
Chinese hud been printed. Copies
were distributed to the members.
The Attorney General gave notice
that in the early part of next week
he should present a bill for appoint
ing boards of Police Commissioneis,
for Hawaii, Maui and Kauai.
Mr. Pilipo moved to adjoiign.

The House assembled at 1 p., m.
After prayer by the Chaplain, the

Mr. Kauwila, from the district of
Puna, that $5,000 be appropriated

Mr. Kamakele, from the leper

Mr. Pilipo, from the district of
Hanalei, that the election of Hon.
Palohau he declared null and void,
owing to certain irregularities. Re

On suspension of the rules Mr.
Kaulukou asked for a petition to be
read from citizens of Honolulu, that
a license be granted to II. J. Nolle
for his place at Kapiolant Pari; called
the Casino. Laid on table until a
bill is introduced.
Mr. Nawahi said the Minister of
Finance had laid his report on the
table several days, but as yet he had
not seen it in the Hawaiian language.
Minister of Finance said tho report
had been printed in the Hawaiian
language but the printers had made
several mistakes and ho wished to
have them corrected before given

motion that all resolutions relating
to payment of taxes should be re

A motion to refer to Finance Com

Mr. Palohau, said that as his
election of representative has been
declared null and void, he be fur

and petition against him.
Mr. Aholo hoped they would not

Mr. Cecil Brown, gave notice of a
bill relating to Justices of the Sup
reme Court, increasing them two.
Mr. Hitchcock said he had re
ceived no answer to his resolution
in regard to the discrepancies in the
Minister of Finance's report.
Mr. G. Brown, said the resolution
was referred to the Finance Com
mittee, and they were so busy that
they had not being able to come to
Mr. Nawahi said that, as there are
two persons engaged in the Minister
of Foreign Affairs ilice, Messrs. J.'
S. Webb and Dr. Parker who have
not yet taken the oath of ellegiance
and are receiving Government
monies for their services, the Minis
ter of Foreign Affairs be requested
4to say if the appointments of these
two men be in accordance with the
laws of this Kingdom.
Minister Gibson said Mr. Webb
was only temporarily engaged and is
not the cleric or secretary, be is only
acting as an expert. Dr. Parker
is also only temporarily engaged in
the appropriation bill we have inser
ted a sum for a Secretary to the
Board of Health. We have engaged
Sisters of Charity out of public funds
and they are not naturalized.
Mr. Nawahi said the resolution did
not refer to Sisters of Charity, but
to those two men, Webb and Parker.
Dr. Parker bad openly said that he
was Secretary of the Board of
Mr. Dole said the resolution had
some reason and f,orcc. The Gov
ernment has distinguished itself by
employing ntrangcrs and ignoring the
law. Tho. honorable member read
the law as it stands.
Minister Gibson said the actual
Secretary is Col. Iaukea ; he holds
the commission, not Mr. Webb.
Mr. Smith asked who drew tho
Minister Gibson said Webb did ;
as regards Dr. Parker he is virtually
Secretary of the Board of Health.
Mr. Smith said that Dr. Parker
told tho Committee of Finance this
morning that bo had a regular agree
ment. Mr. Nawahi said that the appoint
ment of these two men is contrary to
. THE WINDING UP OF THE FAIR.
The Library fair was brought to
a successful close b the entertain
ment of Saturday night, at which
the featuro of chief interest was a
display of her celebrated "wax
works" by the renou'ned Mother
Jarley, ably and amusingly per
sonated by Mrs. Bickerton. The
pose of the different figures was
generally good, and well sustained
through the rather protracted ordeal.
Tho star of the group was the cele
brated prima donna and the per
sonation of the yiiyliny yirl was
hugely relished. There could pro
bably bo no more violent, burlesque
of IFupolcion, with,, his "grand
gloomy and peculiar" countenance,'
than that attempted by his alleged
pcrsonntcr whit his pretty, saccha
i ine smirk. Othello was excellent,
but Dcsdamona was so over-affected
as to be ridiculous. The mad victim
of over study, to prepare for tho
Punahou examination was perfect in
her way, and the others were
moderate, after this come a flute
solo, at the close of which the tal
ented but misguided performer on
Dodds buss played a short passage
on his instrument, which was received
A Mother Goose quadrille was
very acceptably rendei cd, as regards
dress music and motion. Some in
different music was loudly applauded,
.and the .inexcusably delays in pre
senting the stage pieces, smartly
censyred. We advise our amateurs
to begin their stage 'sitting and
dressing hereafter, the week before
the announced night of performance,
merely as a matter of experiment.
An auction of fancy lcmnnnts wound
up the affair. Reported total receipts,
Cin tho neighborhood of $3,000.00.
