Some time ago it was suggested,
we think by Mr. Curtis J. Lyons of
the Survey Olllce, that the study
and record of local weather pheno
mena, by our island residents with
a scientific bent, would not only be
interesting and pleasurable, but
would, if results were carefully and
judiciously collated, be of an appre
ciable scicntilic value. So far we
have heard nothing from anv one to
indicate that they have made a .start
in this direction. It is a pity, for
such researches would be very inter
esting, not only to men of -dunce,
but also to business men and agri
culturists. It is surprising how near
to absolute accuracy predictions, can
be made as to the weather of any
given day, after the results of a
long series of observations have
been collated and compared, and
such predictions, it is indisputable,
would be of great value to the agri
culturist.and mariner. How valu
able, the future only can unfold.
To scientists, too, all over the world,
such observations are especially
valuable as enabling them to perfect
their knowledge of the immutable
laws which govern the movements
and conditions of our sphere. And
yet the apparatus necessary for
taking such observations need not
be complex. A little book for
noting down the various results
from day to day, a barometer, a
thermometer, read olf at fixed
times, and a little home-made rain
gauge a re-sulllcient. l'crhaps others
more experienced in the matter may
suggest n greater variety, equally
simple and cheap, which might be
used to advantage. And, as the
telephone is now in use all round
this island, the direction of Hie
wind at given hours of the day
might be noted and telephoned to
Honolulu. In other lands, espe
cially England and Australia, it has
lately become the custom for news
papers to give weather charts of the
country in each edition, and these
charts are compiled by the Bureau
for that purpose from the observa
tions of many hundreds of independ
ent individuals. It may be perhaps
premature to wish for anything of
the kind here, before the various
islands arc connected by electricity,
but when that time comes, if ob
servers have trained themselves to
note these various climatic and
meteorological results, such u series
of charts would be of immense
value to our busy toilers; Wc
earnestly hope that some of our
readers will lay these remarks to
heart, and start in. We would
invite correspondence from all in
terested in the subject and its possi
A correspondent raises the serious
question of what employment suited
v'to their capacities can bo found for
"youth graduating from our Govern
ment schools. The matter is in
timately connected with the question
of the diversification of our indus
tries, and 'the best thought of the

the manufacture of paper would pay

ever that may be. the manufacture
of wood pulp for paper makers is a
separate industry where paper manu
facture nourishes. It is worth while
finding out whether the advantage
of using up raw material otherwise
wasted would more than counter
balance the expenses of placing the
product in maikct.
"Foreboding" draws attention in
to-daj's issue to the important mat
ter of fire escapes, alluding to other
precautions against lire. Pieces of
stout, knotted rope, long enough to
reach the ground, kept in living and
sleeping rooms above the ground
floor, is a wie piccaution that has
been adopted in some places. The
fire brigade is not complete without
reliable arrangements for having
ladders taken to any point as
promptly as the fire engines. At
the same time every block, as our
correspondent suggests, should be
furnished with proper ladders easily
The compositor left out of Mr.
C. S. Mason's letter, that appeared
on Friday, a full half page of manu
script, by (a common inadvcitcnce
with Hie craft) letting his eye drop
from a word in one place to the same
word several lines further on. Un
fortunately the proof was not read
by copy, and our first intimation of
the amission was a letter from Mr.
Mason in the Daily Hawaiian of
Saturday. We regret very much,
first, that the blunder should have
been made, secondly, that Mr.
Mason should not have treated us
with the ordinary courtesy of draw
ing our attention to the error before
apparently assuming that avc had
wilfully committed it, and, thirdly,
that the Duily Hawaiian should
hac committed a breach of journal
istic etiquette by accepting such a
letter before wc had refused to pub
lish it. We have refused a letter
from another gentleman, contradict
ing a statement in its news columns,
until it will lirst have been tendered
to that paper and refused. There
are cases where it is important
that a piece of wrong intelligence
should be corrected at the very
earliest oppoitnnity, but in the
case in question the mistake could
have been corrected earlier in
the paper-where it occurred. Of
course, where the question of wrong
done is a matter of opinion, as in
political controversy, or where the
rivalries of news-gatherers arc
mostly concerned, the above rule,
which is universally observed by
respectable newspapers, does not so

" KA LA 0 HAWAII."
To-day wc have ireeiwd a utpy
of a new weekly, lut La o Jlmoun
(The Sun of Hawaii), In the Hawai
ian language, edited and published
by Mr. .1. X. Kalaikawaha. We
glanced over the articles contained
in Ihis issue, and were surprised at
(he variety and excellence of Hie
contents, which would do credit to
Hie management of any journal
issued in these Hands. Wc are
informed that a rival journal has
stated that, a- it is smaller in size,
it is not worth as much as the other
Hawaiian newspapers, but the re
duction iu size is more than made
up for by the facts that a smaller
type N used, and a narrower margin
allowed, than is usual with such
papers; so much -o, that this issue
coutniu by actual count over .r,00()
more words than the last issue of its
jealous contemporary. The get-up
and press-work of this paper are
superior to those of any other paper
published on the Islands and reflect
great credit on the printer. To our
readers who are interested in tlic Haw
aiian language, we would say that
this journal is written in the purest
style, and is deeply interesting to
the student from the fact that it
contains numerous articles on the
ancient history, rites, customs, cere
monies, beliefs and traditions of the
Hawaiian race, written by those
well-informed on such subjects.
One of its most interesting features,
however, is the fatherly advice,
given to Hawaiians of all grades
and ages, on the principles which
should govern their lives. "Full of
wise saws and modern instances,"
the editor writes most sensibly and
wisely about those things which the
average Hawaiian is most deficient
in. There is the usual amount of
serial stories and news matter, but a
larger space than usual is devoted
to news from foreign lands. It will
appear every Monday and already
has a circulation of 51,000 with a
good prospect of an increase. Our
new contemporary has our best
wishes for its success, and from the
well-known honest and upright char
acter of its proprietor, Mr. J. N.
Kaiaikawaha, we predict that the
greatest satisfaction with it will al
ways be felt by those who subscribe
to it. Ua, inahalo viahvu i ;eiu (wc

AN EDUCATIONAL QUESTION.
Editou Bui.i.r.TiN : I saw recent
ly, in the columns of your paper, an
article on Education in Hawaii nei,
in which it was stated that the cost
per head of scholars iu Government
schools for past two years was S18.2o
per annum, and that the cost was
increasing, as more of the childicn
entered the English schools. Now 1
would like to ask what is the benefit
to the nation of this costly education
for laborers' children, as most of
them arc? What is the benefit to
the children themselves? What are
they going to do with it when they
grow up? What openings have they
got for making use of it? In past
years, though, happily, it can not be
said at present, it was said that
Lahainalunn scholars generally gra
duated on tho reefs. Presumably, if
it was the case, it was for want of a
suitable opening for their education
to be taken advantage of in an honest
manner. I know myself that many,
now plantation laborers, have re
ceived good educations in our
schools, but what good has it been
to them when they have had to go to
work as field hands?
It is true that it lias been the
policy of the Government to provide
many of these youths with situations
in the public service, but all cannot
be provided for in that way, oven if
the Appropriation Bill be trebled.
What, then, is to be done with them?
A prejudice, too, seems to exist
amongst tradesmen and mechanics
iu favor of foreign trained labor. So
that the skilled labor market seems
to, shut against thorn also, and these
islands arc too small to allow of
many of them being absorbed by tho
professions, even if they could get
the necessary training and qualifica
tions here. On every hand we are
confronted by the question, what
aio wc lo do witli our boys and girl
nftur Ihcii colly education is ovci ?

LATEST FOREIGN HEWS.
Advices by the .Mariposa show
thai Franco has compelled
China to pay the indemnity
df 100,000,000 funics (about
817,000,000) by bombarding
Foo-(1how and destroying a portion
of the Chinese fleet that essayed
to defend it. Admiral Courbet is
charged with treachery by foreign
resident! at the scene, for having
entered the Min llivcr with (he
French licet upon friendly pre
tences while on an errand of de
struction. The French ships saluted
the Chinese Hag on the day previous
to the attack on Foo-Chow, it being
the Emperor's birthday. The
French had eight heavily-armed
ships against eleven Chinese vessels
and the land forts, but the Chinese
vessels were mostly light river and
coast transports, mere toys, Seven
Chinese gun boats were destroyed,
destroyed as was tho Foo-Chow
arsenal the largest .in China
but largely disused of late.
No quarter was allowed the disabled
and sinking ships. After their guns'
were disabled they weio shelled for
hours. Several Chinese gunboats
maintained bravely a desultory lire
for about a quarter of an hour, when
the survivors of their crews leaped
overboard. The combat was prac
tically finished in seven minutes.
The superior French artillery made
the contest, after the disabling of
the Chinese vessels, no fight, but a
massacre. The Chinese loss is esti
mated at 1,000 killed and 51,000
wounded ; the French at 7 killed and
H wounded. The ruined arsenal
cost about 7,000,000 and the arms
and ammunition were valued at
nearly 21 ,000,000. Prime Minister
Ferry, of France, has assiued Lord
Granville, English Foreign Secretary,
that France desires to limit her
operations in the East to tho-e of the
licet. It is' reported (London, Aug.
5) 1st) that Ferry lias instructed
Patcnotre, French Minister to China,
to resume negotiations at Peking,
pending the result of which Conf
lict's squadron will remain at an
chorage off the isle of Mutzin.
Should Patcnotre fail to obtain a
resumption to negotiations, Courbet
is left with absolute freedom to act
as he considers the circumstances
warrant. In the latter case it is ex
pected that Courbet will attack Can
ton. The consular body at Shang
hai, through the French Consul,
have been assured that Shang
hai will not be attacked.
The party of the Extreme Loft iu
France arc clamoring for war. A
French war ship arrived at Hong
Kong, Aug. 5Jlst, to protect the
French merchant marine. An offi
cial reward is offered at Canton for
the heads of Frenchmen. Baron
Do Courccl, the French Embassa
dor, dined with the German Em
peror on Aug. 51 1st. Humors of a
Franco-German alliance arc streng
thened by the statement that the
German residents of China have
been placed under French protec
tion. The Avar has had a depressing
effect on trade at Bombay, cotton
shares falling greatly.
