KniTon Bt'u.r.TiN : Since public
education is not a matter of charity,
but of self-protection, in a free conn
try the Board of Education, un
doubtedly acted wisely in opening
the English schools to Portuguese
and German immigrants free of
charge. But why should a discrimi
nation be made against Hawaiians ?
The time may have been when a
small tuition fee in such schools was
desirable; but has not that time
past? Appropriate action on this
matter, by the Legislature, will re
ceive the approbation of many of
those most concerned in making the
present invidious distinctions. T.

A large amount of rain lias fallen
throughout the district during the
whole Di April, only some three or
four days being without it, this has
enabled the plantation work to be
pushed briskly forward, on several
days as much cane as would make
foity-five cla'rificrs of juice being sent
down the flumes, at a cost for labor
of a little over two men per clarifier,
this is the best I have heard of, for
much work with little labor, beating
the record of the Ililo district, where
they have any amount of water for
flumiug. The largest amount of
cane ground in otic day since the
mill has been in operation is fifty-one
clarifiers, this was made in a little
over eight hours on the 2Gth ulto.
News refuelled here yesterday of a
stabbing affrav in Puna in which one
native killed another.
Our roads arc' in a deplorable con
dition after the heavy rain, some
parts being almost wholly impassa
ble, and nothing is being done to
them, they arc a scandal to the
country, wc pay our road taxes here
as they do elsewhere, and I would
like to ask the powers, that be why
we cannot have it spent on the object
for which it is collected?
Pahala, May 3rd, 1884.
I-Ierr Bandmann the tragedian who
visited Honolulu in January last, has
been relating his experiences in the
different countries he has visited
to a correspondent of the Jioston
Herald. He described his j'isit to
Honolulu as follows ; "On the press
ing invitation, which I arrived in
Fjiom Kino Kaiakaua
and his private or trusty friend,
Mr. Cummings, and also my old
friend Dr. McGrew, Paul Neumann
and several others, I stayed over a
steamer and played four weeks in
Honolulu, where they have a most
beautiful theatre and where the
audiences are the kindest that one
can possibly conceive. The climate
is glorious and the houses were
crowded every night I appeared, and
would have been crowded if I stayed
another month, but I was obliged to
leave then and away to New York."
Skvuhai. gentlemen have been
complaining of late about the ex
tremely business like proceeding of
the ladies, with . regard to Dodds
omnibuses. These gentlemen of un
exceptionable gallantry, say that it
is ttic daily custom of some fair
ones to hail the bus when the see it
is packed perfectly full, and then
the following scene is enacted. The
drivers looks persuasively around and
questions "will any gentleman oblige
a lady?"- lie fixes his eye inquir
ingly on a likely looking subject,
and the lady stares stonily at him as
well, under the combined pressure
the unfortunate slowly resigns his
seat, climbs to the ground and pro
ceeds on foot. Now they argue that
having paid to be carried to a certain
place the contract should be fulfilled
or the faro returned, but as the
gentleman in a certain sense of the
word gets off voluntarily, tiie driver
not having refused to tako liin on,
they cannot legally claim a return of
the fare, and of course if the gentle
man chooses to get off, it is none of
the driver's busiues. In view of all
tula wo are reluctantly compelled to
acknowledge that the fault evidently
lies with the ladies.
THE BRITISH ARMY.
riio Egyptian muddle will
have done one good thing if
it brings about a reform in
the matter of side arms and
bayonets. Every practical
man has known for years that
the quality of steel used tn
the manufacture of bayonets,
eutlassases, and swords is as
bad as it can well be, and the
present system at the, War
Office is alone to blame for
the deterioration. The great
aim of the Department is low
prices, not quality. All their
tests are more or less a farce.
and makers know this only
too well. The naval cutlass
iH perhaps the worst offender,
and I have seen blades in
tended for use in the 3STavy
which a buyer of shoddy for
African niggers would have
rejected. Government con
tractors known this, but if
you speak to them about the
bad quality they only shrug
their shoulders and point to
the prices in the contracts.
Then again the "War Office
always rushes its orders along
so fast that there is no pos
sible chance of discovering
defects. The works go night
and day, and everything is
sacrificed to getting the order
done to the hour. This slip
shod system has been in vogue
so long that the art of temper
ing steel has almost died out.
I remember the time when the
head of a firm thought it no'
disgrace to take off his coat
and superintend the harden
ing shops himself ; that was
in the days of good prices ;
but thing are cut so fine now
that he can't afford this extra
supervision, and so when
Arab steel meets English the
home-make bends like a bar
of leads. "Nothing requires
delicacy cost money. Per
haps, however, Sir Gerald
Graham's report may open
the eyes of the "War "Office,
and steps may be taken not
to buy in the cheapest market,
but to buy in the best. Lon
An Australian Jirm sent an order
to London lately for some iron safes,
and of these it was expressed desired
that some should be of Miller's make,
which was duly expressed. But the
clerk, a junior, who copied the order,
was thinking of a sex that is not
quite safe, for the order came home
with the astounding line in it:
"Please forward, per first ship, six
Milliners three with drawers, and
