There arc brilliant prospects of
extension of Hawaiian communica
tions with the ont-ide world in the
near future. In the San Francisco
Merchant of Sept. I'litli, the follow
ing appears : "The Mexican Pacific
Steam Navigation Company is the
name of a new company that has
just been formed in San Francisco
and Mexico. The pioneer steamers
of the line will be the City of Paris
which is now in China, and po-sibly
the City of Perth. For the present
they will rim between ItritiMi Colum
bia, San FrancKco and Central
America, but, at the conclusion of
the war in China, the steamers of
the company will run to China via
Honolulu for the ptiipo-e of pro
curing coolie labor for Mexico and
Central American ports. All con
tracts and agreements have been
signed here and forwarded for com
pletion to the City of Mexico. It is
expected that the first steamer of
tho company m ill start on her maid
en trip next month."
In a recent Canadian paper the
general manager of the Canadian
Pacific Railway is reported as say
ing that, as soon as that road was
completed, the Company intended
to put on lines of steamers between
China, Japan and elsewhere. In
this declaration it is not too much to
see good hope of Hawaii and Aus
tralia being included in the "else
where." There can be little doubt
that the Pacific terminus of this
most complete transcontinental rail
way will attract an cvei -growing com
merce from all points in tho 1'acilic
Japan, China, New Zealand, Australia
and Polynesia. The intimation that
the railway propiictary itself is going
to establish ocean connections with
its terminus, and that immediately
on completion of the line, empha
sizes our recommendation of a few
days ago, that closer trade relations
with Canada should be sought.
Tho other ocean scheme mentioned,
which is to give us steam communi
cation with China, Mexico and Cen
tral America, lias but the present
trouble in China between it and frui
tion. It is to be hoped the other
Powers, with vast commercial in
terests in China, will give France
. to understand that what Mio is going
' to do site must do quickly, and also be
icnvcfnl what she does nud how she

A SUGAR SLANDER.
A spirited reply is made by the
San Francisco Merchant, to u slander
against Hawaiian sugar contained in
an article on sugar which appeared
in a Mississippi paper. Urging the
Louisiana planters to make their
products better known in the North
and Fast, if they desire to hold (he
market, the writer of the article in
question ay those people "don't
know anything about Louisiana
sugar, and judge it and condemn it
by the light of their experience with
tin1 adulterated trasli of the West
Indies, Sandwich Islands and other
foreign lamK" Then this para
What we say of Louisiana sugar
applies yet more forcibly to Louisi
ana molasses. No one in this south
ern country will buy or use any
other if he can help it. and yet in
tiie North and Fast the people are
fed on all manner of wretched sub
stitutes many of them utterly guilt
less of cane juice but made from
corn stalks, saw dust and othci
cheap bases by the action of acids
and injurious chemicals.
This the Merchant denounces as
another lie, from an obscure and
ignorant quarter, with reference
to Hawaiian sugar. It says, "No
'adulterated trash' comes from the
Sandwich Mauds, and no Hawaiian
sugar is lo be found in New York."
The imposition of dishonest and
deleterious compounds upon Fast
cm consumers it regards as one of
the strongest arguments "in favor of
a permanent continuance of the treaty
with Hawaii," and is "only surprised
that Fastern consunieis do not in
vest their capital in the Islands, for
tho purpose of increasing the sugar
supply, that the quantity may be
sufllcicnt lo extend beyond the nar
row confines of California, and that
they also may enjoy the luxury of
'pure, rich sugar.' " It concludes
That Eastern refiners are able to
gull their consumers with corn-stalk
and saw-dust concoctions is mani
festly the reason why they oppose
the Hawaiian Treaty, and may have
something to do with their low
prices. Comparisons, in sugar,
would lie odious to them.

adopted country's interests and
A recent ai tide in the Louisiana

The San Francisco Merchant dis
cusses at length the Australian mail
question. It supports a proposition
to 'make Russell the first port of call
on the New Zealand coast, ami San
Diego on the American, whereby
New Zealand would be brought with
in twenty-three days and twelve
hours of London. In such an ar
rangement it appears Honolulu would
be left out, and the Merchant con
soles us by pointing to the excellent
communications provided by the
Oceanic Company. It would be a
sorry chiuigc for us to find ourselves
oft' the track of communications be
tween Australasia and America, a
position that has given these Islands
a most beneficial conspicnousness iu
the Pacific for a long time. As
America has, however, deserted New
Zealand iu tho Mistcntation of this
route, and our own Lcgislatuio lias
robbed the Pacific Mail Company to
enrich the Oceanic, we have only to
grin and bear it. The deprivation
will, however, have to be experienced
before its full seriousness can be
There is no statement more hack
neyed than that of defendors of the
liquor traffic, that prohibition has
been a falluio iu tho State of Maine.
It hns gone for nothing with these
people that the prohibitory law has
1 4 1 -,-..- .- 4 'kj u
j been on the stntute books of Maine
for about thirty yenrs once repealed
but very soon restored and that the
liquor dealers thcro have fought it
persistently throughout. Evidently
the people of Maine do not regard
prohibition as n failure, for by a huge
majoiity they have just transformed
it from u statutory enactment lo a
constitutional one. The difference is
thai, whereas hitheito tho law was
liable to be repealed by any hostile
Lcgislatutc, now it is part of the i
Slate constitution, and cannot be
touched except by the direct vote of
the people themselves.
THE CHINESE THEATRE.
Since Rcmcnyi left there has been
quite a lull iu amusement circles, so
the other night for a change the I
Ht'i.i.KTiN reporter went to hear
grand opera at the Imperial Chinese I
Theatre. Arriving at the entrance
a group of mournful Celestials were
found collected round the door,
awaiting possible pass-out cheeks. I
Two otlleious-looking gentlemen witli
clean shaved heads, and spotless
white coats, stood at the door col
lecting the two-bit paste-boards. At
one side of the door was a little
opening where stood the money
taker. Commencing to walk in one
of the gentlemen at the door said,
Tickets, John. We remarked that
wc belonged to the press. The Prcstt,
says John, me no sabee, you no
rcdee topee man. Producing a copy
of that afternoon's Hi'i.unix, John at
once said, Ah! me sabee now. vclly

stockee. Walking in after this slight
interruption, it was found tho house
had a full audience. It had a kind
of joss-stick, opium, tobacco and
fishy smell, so much so, that wc
regictlcd not having a bottle of
Rickscckcr's perfume, sold by Hen
son. Smith & Co. A row of Celes
tials stood in front of the stage with !
tlieir hats on, and appeared to be
resting their noses on the boards.
All the auditors wore their hats, and
about one-half were smoking cigar
ettes. Gaining a scat, a haul one,
certainly, found us sitting next to a
Celestial who passed tho soup round
the last time wc wcic out to dinner.
Hello, Johnny, said lie, vclly gladec
cc you. Wc bowed and thanked
him. On cither side of the gallery
near the stage, are the private boxes
for ladies, a few being there busily
fanning themselves. In one box wc
thought wc spied loma, but, later on,
found it was a Chinese school
teacher. The stage is small and has
no footlights, the illuminations pro
ceeding from three large tea-kettles
with oil and wicks suspended above
the stage, no curtain, scenery, flics,
wings, proscenium, or even proper
tics other than a table, two chairs,
fans and a few weapons. On cither
side are two curtained doorways
used as exits and entrances. At the
back of the stage is a kind of recess,
used by the orchestta, consisting of
a dismal fiddle (not a Princess), a
flageolet, tambourine beaten by light
drumsticks and a dinner gong. The
Celestial who engineered the gong
leaned back, smoked cigatcttes and
appeared to be the Ilcrr Hcrger of
this most harmonious collection of
instruments. The play had com
menced, that is, for the evening, as
it had been on from 7 to 1 1 o'clock
for the last six months, and will
probably be finished about the time
that Clans Sprockets is made King
of these Islands. Chinese drama is
given in sections as everyone knows.
The one who plays the leading female
part is the best paid, he talks iu
falsetto and sings in high, yes, very
high soprano, with an cffoit that
must make his throat as raw as one
of Waller's beefsteaks. Whathorc
is to the play a foreigner can not sec,
certainly it; becomes very wearisome.
Of all the screaming, twanging and
tooting that mortal was ever in
flicted with, this display was the
most vociferous. The orchestra
never let up from tho time the circus
began. For five minutes at a time
there was the liveliest kind of a
tenement-house caucus, all the par
ticipants shrieking and waving fans
nud then filing out by the side en
trances, only to make their welcome
appearance again iu half a minute
and go through the business again.
Wc are willing to wager a Peruvian
quarter that on a still night, the
noise could lie heard at Molokai.

to dinner, by pitching the soup into

to make us deaf, so we had lo beat a

pass-out checks, once more bicathcd

Sisti:u Mnry Clate, of St. Andrews
Priory, passed peacefully away,
exactly at 12 o'clock noon. The
immediate cause of death was from
a large carbuncle on the back. The
deceased was in the sixty-fourth year
of Iter age, and has been a Sister of
the Society of the Holy Trinity,
Devonporl, Fngland, for about thirty
four years. She was one of the
faithful women who served as nurses
during the Crimean War. . Her
residence iu these islands lias extended
about twenty years, first at Lahaina
and the past font teen years in Uo
nolulu. She was a most sweet and
amiable woman, beloved by her
young pupils and everyone she came
iu contact with, and a devout
follower of the Anglican faith. The
past few ycais she has been some
what of a sufferer, but has borne it
patiently. Her end was peace. The
funeral will probably take place to
morrow morning, but at what hour
wc cannot state as we go to press.
YOUNC PEOPLE'S SERVICE.
Last evening at the Ecthel Union
Church, n very interesting Sunday
School Concert was given. Mr. II.
A Parmelec, the efficient superin
tendent of the school, conducted the
exercises. Mrs. S. M. Damon pre-
sided at the organ and led the sing-
ing. Rev. Dr. Damon opened with
prayer, and the Rev. K. C. Oggel
read the Scripture. The following
programme was then carried out:
Recitation "Life and Death," b
Misses Lottie Parmclee and Katie
Recitation "The Creed of the
Bells," by Miss Nettie Andrews.
Recitation "Queer Medicines,"
by Miss Lewis' Class.
Recitation "The Model Church,"
by Miss May Dillingham.
Recitation "Rock of Ages," by
Miss Addie Peterson.
Dr. Damon spoke of the advan
tages of the Clnistian youth in this
city above the young in heathen
lands. The pastor, Rev. E. C. Oggel,
in a closing address, emphasized
these two thoughts : all the church
at school, and all the bdiool at
church. The exercises were a deci
ded success and gave much satisfac
tion to the large congregation pre
sent. The audience was dismissed
with the benediction by Dr. Damon.
