Intended but misfortune. A life
of self-indulgeiico is about the great
est calamity thnt can befall young
persons of either sex. and wretched
is tho put out who lives to see the
results of such a training. Not in
frequently the sons lake to drink or
some other foi m of dissipation, and
the daughters arc sought in maningc
uy men attracted only by the dowry
they have received and not by the
personal, moral, or intellectual
charms of its possessor. Unions
cemented by nothing stronger than
self-interest on one side, and a
pliant disposition on the other, lesult
in mutual indifference ; and the con
sequences are sometimes still mote
disastrous. And in the Jong run
perhaps such people conic to confess
that their lives have been failuics
tin ough having been saddled with
that wealth accumulated for them
by the above bund nml tho Kovnl.
Mr. Uergcr combined the two in one,
and tlicy played a fin ther election
together in excellent harmony, con
eluding with the National Anthem.
While the gentlemen in charge of
tho bands wcte paying their respects
to the King, befote taking leave for
the time, Ills Majesty was pleased
to convey to Mr. Hill compliment
upon tho good playing of the boys of
tho Reformatory School Hand.
f i om the mistaken idea of giving
thereby happiness, when, if they had
not had it, their lives mjght Iiavc
been far more happy and useful.
And tho country whose circum
stances, customs or laws favor the
easy accumulation of wealth by the
Jew to the exclusion of the many
will find in the march of time that
nought has done so much to lower
her standard of national life and
even to weaken the very existence of
that life as that one thing. It
behooves ns in Hawaii nci to look
carefully and sec that this may not
come upon us in tho future years,
and to endeavor as far as in us lies
to settle the country with a class of
yeoman homestead proprietors.

THE MAIN IDEA.
' How is he, getting on':" and
"What i lie worth?" No ques
tions are more frequently asked than
these nml none more faithfully leilcct
the miitciial side of our civilization
in its social aspects. For 'gcttiii"
on " does not imply a closci fidelity
to duty, increased purity of manners,
greater elevation of purpose, higher
mental aims, or a broader and nobler
mental culture: it simply menus the
acquisition of more money or of
some other form of property ; or the
satisfaction of a wot Idly and often
ignoble ambition. " Worth," again,
is perverted from its old, honest
meaning, as significant of admiiablo
qualities, and is made to express the
amount or measure of a man's mate
rial possessions. So that the answer
' tothc question. "Whatis hu woith?"
is comprised in mi arithmetical for

tal or inconip, and not of his nobility
His Majesty King Kalnkaua ar
rived at the age of foi ty-eight years
on Sunday last, the JCth of NoVe.m
ber. The nnblm lintiiim- r.. i.
celebration of the occasion was fixed
for Monday, but loyal demonstra
tions began to bo made as early as
Saturday aftci noon. In the usual
Saturday afternoon conceit by Hie
Hoyal Hand in Emma Square,' two
pieces, composed expressly for this
aiiniver.snry celebration by Mr. Uer
gcr, wore played: a birthday march,
" J.a Hunan o ka Moi," and a quick
step, "The Winning Jt0at." On
Saturday evening the Hell Toner
was beautifully illuminated with
colored lamps, by Imiq Marshal
.McOiiuc. Ilieic was n profuse
flutter of Hags, Sunday, on all Gov
ernment buildings from tlio Palace
to the Lighthouse, but of course no
demonstration to break the usual
stillness. Gloomy weather on Satur
day caused apprehensions for the
attitude of the elements on the ap
pioaching public holiday, but those
who were awakened at sunrise on
Monday morning, by the thundering
out of a loyal salute from the shoio
battery, opened their eyes upon the
glorious prospect of a fine day. The
prospect did not prove illusive,
either, for the clouds only rallied at
limes through the day to give picas
ant shade instead of dampening
shower, the blight bprinkling thai
was felt once or twice causing no
At seven o'clock in the morning a
reception was given at Jolani Palace
to tho police force, prior to its
detailing thioughoiit the town for
tho regulation of tho holiday. The.
force marched from tho station to
the Palace, accompanied by the
Keformalory School Maud. Dcpnty
Marshnl Dayton presented Capt.
Tell and his command to his Majesty,
"nun i no captain icad a congratula
tory address upon behalf of tho I
force, to which the King responded
in graceful terms. After several I
pieces had been played alternately i
Not to have a regatta on the anni
versary of His Majesty's birth, would
be an unusual slate of things. The
day opened beautifully fine, and the
Mater was in splendid condition for
rowing ; indeed a more perfect day
could not have been wished for.
Soon after eight o'clock lame crowds
of people began to assemble at the
wharves. At the different steamship
sheds it large number of chairs had
been provided for the accommoda
tion of visitors. The Judges were
stationed in a scow in the stream
directly opposite the Oceanic Co.'s
wharf, and beyond that, near the
cattle landing, was a largo barge
coveted with an awning and appro
priately decorated, for the use of
Ills Majesty and guests. Next to
this, mukai, was the steamer
Planter, the flag boat of the Hono
lulu Yacht and Moat Club. The
vessel was handsomely decorattd,
and dining the day was crowded
with the lady friends of members of
the club and others, who were hand
somely entertained. They were
carried to and fro by Mr. A. Frank
Cooke's steam launch in charge of
Mr. Frank Godfrey. On the other
side of His Majesty's stand was tlio
steamer Iwalani, with a large num
ber of people on board. All the
vessels in tho harbor were nrofusnlv
decorated with bunting. The ltoy.il
Hawaiian Baud was stationed on the
Intcr-lsland Navigation Co.'s wharf,
and the Hefonimtory School Band
on the Oceanic Co.'s wharf. Both
bands discoursed excellent music
throughout the day. The races
started promptly at nine o'clock,
and weic concluded about half-past
two o'clock. The Judges were Capts.

This was the race of the day and
was looked forward to with the most
intense excitement as the crews
took riicir positions assigned them
by the Judges. There was con
siderable betting on the result, the
Myitlcs and Ilonolulus being most
mentioned, tho former for choice.
Tlio five boats got away to a good
stnrt. After a few strokes had been
rowed the Ilonolulus and the Myr
tles were seen to bo gradually draw
ing away from the other three boats.
When the lighthouse was reached,
tho Myrtles; were half a length
ahead, Kapiolani, third; Poomaike
lani, fourth; the Kapuaiwa bringing
up the rear. Bounding the Soar
Buoy the Myrtle had increased
their lead to two lengths, rowing well
in themselves. They made a splendid
turn at the Bell Buoy, and increased
their lead by another length, the
Ilonolulus tinning rather wide. The
Kapiolani turned the Bell Buoy third
with the Poomaikelani close behind,
the Kapuaiwa being at this point
hopelessly in the rear. After leaving
the Bell Buoy the Poomaikclanis
made a giand spurt, and it looked as
if they were going to catch the
leaders, but after a few strokes they
fell back and the Kapiolanis 'were
soon level with them. In the mean
time no change took place between
the two leading boats, and the Myr
tle boys eventually won a well-contested
race by 10 seconds, their
time for the full distance being 2 1
minutes and 29 seconds, that of the
Ilonolulus, 21 minutes and .'19
seconds. Tho Kapiolaiii and Poo
maikelani had a good race home for
third place, resulting in favor of the
former. Tho other boat did not
finisli the course, but retired to its
boathouse when the lighthouse was
passed. The race from . beginning
to end was hotly contested by tho
first two crews, and had the Ilono
lulus not made such a wide turn at
the Bell Buoy, the result might have
been closer. Both crews iiiust-b6
congratulated on their fine display

For this race there wove live
entries, Malia, Puaala, Kanoelani,
Kapiolani nnd Lilian. The first three
boats had entered a protest against
the Lilian, because she was a much
lighter boat than theirs. However
as the committee stated that the race
was for six-oared boats with station
ary scat, and did not specify any
particular style of boat,, such a pro
test could not possibly hold good.
When the Lilian came to tlio startim
boats the three above mentioned
boats withdrew, and after consider
able delay the Judges declared the

The 200 yards foot race, between
Willie King and Jacob Sims, took
place about half-past twelve o'cloek
on Fort street, tho starting point
being nearly opposite Wilder &
Co's store, the finish at the foot of
tho street. A good start was effected,
Suns taking the lead, which he main
tained to the end, winning easily,
King giving up before reaching the
tape. It was a difllcult matter to
get a clear course, one of the
runners being slightly interfered
with during the race.
'i m: mx'Ki'Tiox.
At dark the Palace was prettily
illuminated on all sides. A row of
colored lights along the unnor vnr.
andah gave a line effect, and an
abundance of white light made the
grand building look cheerful
throughout. There might have been
a more brilliant Jshqwing in the
grouuds without making daytime a
bit jealous. The guards were drawn
up along the main approaches, and
tno Jtoyal and Reformatory School
Bands alternated with choice selec

for a grand rcniNtion of the National
Anthem. Kahili bearers stood on

what was paid for by repealed gen

expressed their gratitude by playing

The time of the 200 yards foot
race lias been given to us as 20i
seconds. There is not a man on the
Islands who can run the distance in
such time. It is ridiculous to talk
about it, for such time is equal to
tho fastest runners in England and
America, and they can give a good
start to either of yesterday's con

at 2G seconds.
