USELESS AND UNNECESSARY EX
TRAVAGANCE. For pure unadulterated, unniiti
' gated and inexcusable extravagance,
the appropriation ask for by Mr.
Neumann, for assistance in his olllcc,
takes the palnr The work of the
Attorney-General's ofllce has in
creased but little, if any, since 1870.
At that the Attorney-General re
ceived 85,000, per annum, and he
had one clerk, who was competent
to attend the circuits if necessary,
who received S 100 per month. For
years the olllcc of Clerk to the
Attorney-General was tilled by com
petent men at this salary, and both
the Attorncy-Gcneial and his clerk
had abundance of time for private
practice. In 1878 the salary of the
clerk was raised to $2,000 a year,
and Mr. Cecil Iirown held the posi
tion for some time, at that salary.
An occasional pressure of business
necessitated outside assistance, hut
to no great amount. The pay of the
clerk has been increased from time
to time until 188:J when it had
reached 2,500 per annum. It would
seem that this might have been
sufllcicnt to employ a competent
person to conduct the business of
the olllcc, but not so. All during
the Gibson ul interim period, Mr.
Whiting was employed at an addi
tional cost of about 8-100 a month,
to do the work which the elcik is
supposed to do and always has done.
Since the advent of Mr. Neumann
to the olice of Attorney-General,
Mr. Whiting has been permanently
retained as Deputy Attorney-General
at a salary of 5100 a month, at
the same time that Mr. Rosa is being
paid 82,500 per annum for attending
to the same work. And this in face
of the fact that there is nothing in
the Appropriation Bill authorizing a
salary to be paid to anyone in the
Attorney-General's olllcc except to
the clerk. But to cap the climax,
the Attorney-General has asked, and
the Legislature has granted a salary
of 3,000, u year for a Deputy Attorney-General,
and an increase of the
salary of clerk to $3,000 a year, so
that the country is to be filched of
- the sum of $500 a mouth to pay foi
services which L. McCully, W. O.
Smith, Cecil Brown and others have
performed well, and hud abundance
of spare time, for from $1,200, to
82,000, per annum. This is what
we call ictrenchment with a ven
geance. Unless a change is made on
the third reading of the bill, the
country will havo the pleasure of
paying two high priced men for
doing one man's work.
Of the many ways of spending a
summer vacation perhaps none is
more enjoyable than camping out.
'A tent, coffee pot, frying pan, hatchet
m' blankets, gun and provisions, is
a sulllcicnt outfit. A party of four
or five can thus have rare sport.
There are high mountain ranges uud
peaks to explore, or deep valleys
which run back into the mountains
far from the bnunts of men. There
arc the open valleys easy of ncccssi
and the coves and lagoons near the
sea. All of these furnish capital
opportunities for jolly recreation and
rest. We work too steadily, and
have too little relaxation In this warm
climate. It is not good for the mind
or body. So we say, "boys camp
out;"" "Go West," or F-aBt or
North or South, only tjo.
THE BOARD OF GENEALOGY ACAIN.
The committee on old bones and
Darwinian theories has turned up
once more, with an increased appe
tite. 810,000, paid for board and
lodging of the committee during the
last two years, but they think that
$10,000 will be the proper figure for
the ensuring period. With their
usual fierce desire for retrenchment
the cabinet backs the committee to
the full extent. Now thatl'otnaike
latu is saddled off onto the people
of Hawaii, and draws the salary of
a sinecure billet as Governess, some
other impecunious royal relative will
probably turn up ready and willing
to sacrifice him or her self for the
countries good, for $250 a month
and the privelego of drawing checks

Thc'House met at 10 a. m.
After prayer by the Chaplain, the
minutes of the preceding day were
read and adopted.
Mr. Kanealii was granted leave to
present a petition for the establish
ment of an "English school at Wai
chu. Maui. Referred to Education
Mr. Kaunamano, by leave, read a
bill to grant an appropriation not to
exceed $10,000 to the Board of
Genealogy for the further prosecu
tion of its labors.
Mr. Kaulukou moved a suspension
of the rules to have the bill read a
second time by its title.
Mr. Hitchcock opposed the motion
in Hawaiian, and moved the bill be
Mr. Dole followed, sayinjr there
was nothing to show for the 10,000
already expended upon the Hoard
but a book that was utterly worth
less and ought to be put in the
museum as a curiosity. It struck
him that the affairs from beginning
to end was a swindle and a job.
The report from beginning to end
was marked with imbecility, ignor
ance and nonsense. Heading of it
showed it was not written nor com
posed by the person who signed it.
It was perfectly evident that the
persons who concocted the document
wotdd forever keep themselves
anonymous. It was a discredit to
anyone who had anything to do with
it or who should have anything to
do with it in the future. There was
nothing about it except ignorance
Mr. Kaulukou argued for the
necessity of the Board's work, if the
rising generation were not to grow
up in ignorance of the fathers of
The previous question, was carried
and the motion to reject passed 15
Mr. Dole moved a reconsideration
of the question, when the point of
order was raised by Mr. Aholo that
the motion to reject was irregular.
The President ruled that the motion
and its passage were regular, and a
discussion ensued upon his decision.
Mr. Kaulukou appealed from the
chair to the House.
At length the previous question
stopped an otherwise interminable
wrangle, and the appeal against the
chair was sustained by 18 to 17.
The President accordingly direc
ted the Secretary to erase the record
of the motion to reject.
Mr. Kaulukou withdrew his motion
for the suspension of the rules.
Mr. W. O. Smith moved to reject
the bill, but this was ruled out of
Mr. Aholo raised the point that
the motion could not be withdrawn
after the previous question passed,
which was sustained.
The motion was curried, and the
bill fread a second time by its title.
Mr. W. O. Smith moved that the
further consideration of the bill ho
indefinitely postponed. The bill was
defective in its title showing it was
intended to amend chapter 42 of the
Session Laws of 1882, while there
was nothing in the bill referring to
Mr. Kaulukou moved the bill bo
referred to a Select Commlttco and
moved the previous question.
The previous question carried,
and the ayes and noes were de-
manded on the main question, which
resulted in the motion to indefinitely
postpone the bill being declared
carried by 10 to 18.
A question was raised as to the
accuracy of the count, when the
question was taken over again, re
sulting in the motion being lost, by
the following vote:

The reception to President Fair
child, of Oberlin College, at Dr.
Whitney's Friday evening was a very
pleasant affair. It was tendered by
the lcsidcnt Oberlin Allumin, of
whom there aie not n few in Ilono
lulu and the Islands. Owing to the
fact that the reception depended on
Ills arrival by the Mariposa, and
that event happened after 1 i ji., of
which many may not have heard,
thcic were not as many present as
otheiwise would have attended. In
spite of this the rooms were full and
enjoyment was universal. Mrs. J.
M. Whitney, the hostess, provided
other than intellectual cntcitainment
and the gest with which the guests
entered into all parts of the affair
testified to its success.
Thanks to the courtesy of Mr.
Monsarrat and his Attorney Mr.
Dole, Mr. McGuire was permitted
to remove from the bell tower, the
lanterns with which such beautiful
illuminations are occasionally pro
duced, and these lights were placed
on the grounds as well as on Dr.
Whitney's house causing a most
fairy like effect.
Besides the Rev. Dr. Fairchild, a
number of other recent arrivals were
present, among whom wore Rev. Mr.
Oggle and wife, of the Bethel
Church, Miss M. 15. Alexander, the
new Principal for the Kawaiahao
Seminary, Miss Malonc, Mr. Mason,
the General Secretary of the Y. M.
C. A. and others.
Dr. Fairchild proposes to visit the
Volcano this week and will return
to the States by the steamer of Sep
tember 1st. It is to be hoped that
before his departure his voice may
be heard from the city pulpits.
FORT STREET CHURCH.
Professor Fairchild, of Oberlin
College, preached a scholarly and
impressive sermon in Fort Street
Church yesterday morning. His text
was, "we know that the whole crea
tion groanth and travaileth until
now." He characterized pain as in
itself an evil and that continual!,
and demonstrated that .in every
condition and every period of
human life pain was present. Not
only the struggle for existence but
the strivings after wealth and power
were really efforts to avert calamity
and to lay up stores of resources
against apprehended evil. Were
man only created for this life, the
pessimists would be right in saying
that it would be better for the whole
race to go out of existence at once.
But, taking the view that the painful
experiences of this life were pieant
to discipline man and perfect him for
the better slate of things divinely
promised, the even present ills of
life were really a blessed dispensa
tion. 'The certainty of death, and
its uncertainty as to time ono of the
inevitable burdens of life. -was with
other evils calculated to refine the
selfishness out of human nature and
to check the reign of appetite and
passion. A selfish man would be out
of place in tho heavenly state this
world itself was too good for him.
The sermon was indited in plain and
elegant style, gracefully but very
quietly delivered and won the close
attention of the congregation

If I do not mistake there is some

Such an amount judiciously spent on
