This is the appropriate term for a
bit of advice in to-day's Gazelle.
It docs not believe in organization to
overcome bad government. It does
not want a leader until the battle has
t proceeded almost to victoiy. What
it believes in is the formation and
expression of healthy sentiment, and
making corrupt politics so unpopular
that no one will even acquiesce in
them. That is, just keep on, with
half a dozen different oracles of
public opinion, with as many sepa
rate aims, all shouting for a change
of Government, but no two having
any common idea as to who or what
should succeed. Our system and
circumstances arc not adapted to
parly government upon permanent
lines, but demand something like it
suited to the changing exigencies of I
different administrations. If there
is an evident necessity, and a com
mon desire among a large propoition
of the people, for better administra
tion of our affairs, it should not
bo impracticable to take simple yet
definite measures for concentrating
that desiie tliiough a single focus.
The most that would make such
a movement impracticable would be
jarring ambitions and jealousies
among different sections of the com i He was highly esteemed in all the
mtinity, which might clash fatally in J relations of life, and for his provcr
tho effort to frame a policy, select binl libeiality to calls of charity and
leaders and devise methods. Well, the general welfare his memory will

DIVORCE IN FRANCE.
Ft mice has replaced iv divorce law
on licr statute book, after being
without one since the lesloiation of
the Rourbons. Although revised
by the Senate to be it much less
radical measure llinn its first draft,
it is still obnoxious to the Clerical
pntly, which has contended for years
ncainst its adoption. Tho new
enactment is not, however, n loose I
one as di voice laws go, except in the
matter of causes for divorce. It is
liberal enough in that respect, the
list embracing many causes from
conviction for felony to habitual in
solence to a mother-in-law. This
libeiality is offset pretty fully in
restrictions upon divorced parties.
Where the divorce is obtained for
adultery the repudiated husband or
,f t , , ,
mour. A divoi ecu wife cannot marry
again until ten months after the
formal .separation, though the
divorced husband is free to wed
again at once. If a divorced party
marries again and is a second lime
divorced, he is not permitted to
marry a third time unless to the
party from whom lie was first
divorced. The law is also very strict
in respect to the evidence requited
in divorce cases. Testimony of the
parents of suitor or defendant, or of
children or servants is not admitted.
Probably its provision against in
judicious maniage is one of the most
valuable safeguards of the law.
Under it men cannot many under
the a;e of ITi or women under that
of 21, without the consent of parent,
while hasty marriages arc provided
against by lcquiring that after the
legal age three citatious must bo
served at intervals of three months
on fathers and mothers.
The rapid driving of carriages, and
the galloping of saddle horses,
through the most frequented thor
oughfares, constitute an outrage
upon the public. If tlie police
authorities continue to snore over
repeated reminders of their duties in
this icspcct, ncople will have to take
the law into their own hands in the
uliniip.. nf cudgels
Ono of the most remarkable
achievements of the time is the sub
scription of S2r,0(J),()00 by the peo
ple of Manchester in one day. to
build a ship canal to Liverpool,
making their great city accessible to
It is with deepest regret that we
aie called upon to announce tho
death of Mr. Henry May, one of
our oldest and most respected citi
zens, which took place at half-past
nine o'clock this morning, at his
residence on liurctania street, from
malarial fever. The deceased gen
tleman had only been confined to the
house about two weeks, but during
tlie past few days ho sank very
rapidly. He was born in Newark,
England, January 17tli, 1820, and
first came to these Islands in Maich,
185fi, when, in partnership with Mr.
S. Savidgc, lie opened a grocery
store on King street, next to where
me nctuel Vestry stands. There
wcic quite a number of general
stores in Honolulu at that time, but
this was the first grocery store ever
opened. The deceased soon after
left for his home
' returned about twelve years later,
I and opened another store in his own
I name. In 1877, he took his nephew
Mr. T. May, into partnership under
I the firm name of Henry May & Co.
He was one of the most faith
ful and valued members of the
Anglican church, always regular and
constant in ids attendance, nud he
will be gicatly missed by the clergy
nnd members of the concrrerrntinn.
deceased was one of tlie trustees of
.i. r ......
uic uceirs Hospital, a member of
the Chamber of Conimnm .-..! r.f
tho British Club. The Government
House, Hishop & Co.'s bank and the I
principal business houses closed at
noon out of respect to his memory.
The Inst sad rites will be performed
at the Anglican Cathedral to-morrow J
afternoon at four o'clock. I
A BRILLIANT AFFAIR.
Few gatherings In Honolulu have
brought together more nocicty peo
ple than the tcccption given lasj.
evening by Mr. and Mrs. S. M.
Damon, at their icsidcncc, Nutiantt
Valley, to their brother Mr. Frank
Damon and his bride, who so recently
nnived from China. A large lanai
had been erected on the mauka side i
of the house, covered in with canvns,
the interior being most elegantly
decorated with palm leaves, ferns,
flowers, flags of all nations and j
colored lanterns. .Some beautiful
oil paintings were hung in various
paits of the building, the whole de
sign, which was one of Mr. Frank
Damon's, being brilliant in the ex
treme. The grounds in front of the
house were ono blaze of light from
htiudicds of coloicd lanterns hung
from the trees. The invited guests
began to arrive about half-past seven
o'clock, and thcte was a constant
succession until after nine o'clock to
tender their tcspects. They were
received by Mr. and .Mrs. S. C.
Damon and conducted to the front
parlor and presented to Mr. and
Mrs. Frank Damon. Amongst the
large number picsent were noticed,
His Majesty the King attended by
Major Purvis, II. II. II. Princess
Liliuokalani, His Ex. Gov. Dominis,
Don. A. S. Cleghorn, Their Ex. 's
W. M. Gibson and C. T. Gulick,
II. B. M.'s Commissioner Major J.
II. Wodchouse, French Commis
sioner Monsieur Peer, lions. Mr.
and Mis. C. R. Bishop, lit. Rev.
Bishop Hermann, etc., etc. Some
of the costumes worn by the ladies
were very beautiful. Ice cream and
cake in abundance was handed
refund, of which nearly everyone
present partook. Soon afterwards
tho guests began to depart and thus
was brought to a close an affair
which for elegance and perfection of
detail has probably never been sur
passed on any similar occasion in

THE OCTOBER MONTHLY.
The Hawaiian Month!! for
October opens with an extended
epitome of an article in tho Hemic
dc3 Deux Mondcs for May, on "The
Redness of the Sky." To some ex
tent it beats out the views of the
Rev. S. E. Bishop, as given in the I
May Monthly, and must be interest
ing to nil who have given that new
phenomenon attention. An unusually
large instalment of Mrs. Wyman's
story, "Madeline," is given in order
to complete its publication within the
time intended. The only poetical
piece is an anonymous one, " Grow
ing Old," and it is as beautiful in
conception as it is creditable in ex
ecution. tTlic Rev. Sercno M.
Bishop contributes an article on
"The Political and Social Future of
Hawaii," which forecasts that this
nation will drift peacefully and pros
perously into an Anglo-American,
independent republic. The second
paper of " Random Notes on the
Hawaiian Language," is furnished
by the Rev. C. M. Hyde. . It makes
a digression from tlie philological to
the ethnological, by citing testimony
of the former to the theory that the
Hawaiian is a distinct and older race
than the Malay. In this direction it
, goes so far as to mention an Amen
can notion that the Hawaiian is a
long-lost Anglo-Saxon brother, while
disputing the idea that he may bo
one of the lost sheep of the House
of Israel. He may be both, if Mr.
nine's doctrines of Anglo-Israclism
are true. Mr. Hyde, in lamenting
the pctineation of the native speech
with obscenity, takes occasion to
deprecate, as a " lamentable fact,"
the court patronage of lewdness in
the levamped hula dances. Fashions
and novelties, puzzles, whimsicalities
and selections of wise lore make up
the rest of this excellent number.
