THE CENSUS OF 1884.
Through the kindness of. IMr. E.
L. Clarke, Superintendent of tlio
Census of 1881, wo arc enabled to
give some particulars of that import
ant work. The simultaneous method
has been adopted, whereby it is
designed to enumerate all the inhab
itants of the Kingdom on a particu
lar day. That day is to be the 'JCth
of December instant. Twenty-six
agents of the Superintendent have
been appointed by the President of
the Board of Education, one for
each electoral district. These will
appoint, according to the amount of
work to be done in their respective
districts, sub-agents to assist them.
A few days previous to the L'Gth
a blank, with columns for all the
kinds of information desired, will be
left at every house to be filled by the
householder. On the 27th of Decem
ber the sub-agents will begin collect
ing the blanks, and arc obliged to
sec that thoy are made out correctly.
Tlio agent, on receiving all the blanks
from the sub-agents, will summarize
their contents in a blank provided
for the purpose, which he must send
to the Superintendent, lie must
also preserve the blanks from which
ho makes out his table, until the
receipt and acceptance of his returns
shall have been acknowledged by the
Superintendent, and until he shall
have received instructions as to the
disposition to be made of the blanks.
The agents shall arrange with the
sub-agents for the amount of com
pensation to be given them for their
Intcr-islaud vessel?, are to be sup
plied with blanks to be lilled in cites
where they ore not in port on thu
night of the 2iith. Hcsidcs thc.icgu
lar blanks, for English-speaking and
Hawaiian people, special forms have
been prepared in the Chinese and
Portuguese languages, respectively.
Senor Canavarro, the Portuguese
Commissioner, has kindly volun
teered to address the blanks to his
countrymen in the Kingdom.
Each blank is to contain an enu
meration, with particulars of age,
sex, condition, occupation and reli
gion, of those who sleep in each
domicile where it is left, on the
Miight of December 2Clh. It is of
the utmost importance that the
census shall be accurate, and it
becomes the whole people to cheer
fully facilitate the woik as they best
can. The Superintendent seems to
have planned the operation well, and
if all his subordinates do their duty
a very complete census should be tho
(Spi'clnl Coriosiminlciico of'tho JIci.m:tin.)
Feasting is one of the principal
industries in Santa Ulausland, and
tho traders are very .eager to supply
tho viands. One of the most popu
lar dishes in this part of the empire
is called poi. It is made of tho taro
bulb), ' usually by pounding in a mor
tar with stones. Nothing is more
wholesome and nutritious as regular
- diet, and no festive board hero can
bo bounteously laid without a cala
bash full of it in tho centre. Some
fastidious people have not taken
kindly to this' ilUh, from their sus-
-.picions that tho mode of mnnufac-
- turc did not ensure cleanliness. So
that none need br without poi, how
ever, a skilful iii tiflccr has invented
n machine for making it, and the
product, absolutely clean and invit-
ing to tho daintiest palate, is sold by
ti Mr. I?. B. Oat, whose place is in
tho Pncluc Navigation
building, Queen Street.
give a feast to friends from parts of
tho empire where poi is unknown,
which shall bo complelo without the
native dish of this region.
All over tho empire the most pala
table llsh is acknowledged by a ma
jority to 1)0 the salmon. No place
yields better salmon than the Colum
bia river, Oregon. Mr. E. P.
Adams, n renowned auctioneer of
these parts, lias on hand a supply of
this year's catch of that stream's
red salmon. No Cluistnias table can
be complelo without some of this
llsh, and it is no wonder that tho
store whcic they arc got is thronged
with people buying it up like hot
The shop of Messrs. II. Ilafkfcld
& Co., one of the largest firms in
this place, is where many of the
traders go to get their supplies of nil
kinds of provisions at wholesale.
One of their specialties is Australian
preserved beef, which is at once a
necessary and a luxury.
Messrs. AVolfe & Edwards keep a
large grocery and provision store at
the comer of. King and Nuuanu
streets. They have such a large and
diversified stock on hnnd at all times
that one would think, to look in from
the street, that thoy had scarce room
enough to turn round in. Neverthe
less they arc nblc to accommodate a
large custom, by good arrangement
and prompt attendance. It would
be impossible to tell in this letter all
that they sell. Hut just namo any
article in their line, nnd you may
call for it at their shop with assur
ance that it will be supplied. They
receive groceries and provisions by
Mr. Win. McCandless, 0 Queen
street, and Mr. Ed. G. Waller, who
has a shop on King and one on
Punchbowl street, supply most of
the people with all kinds of fresh
meat, fish and vegetables.
There is one establishment hero,
that would leave a serious blank
upon many festive boards if it was
blotted 'out. That is the Pioneer
Steam Candy Factory and Hakcry of
Mr. F. Horn. It can furnish a whole
feast to order, or supply the national
dishes of Santa Chuisland separately,
such as plum pudding with rich
sauce, all kinds of cakes, plain and
ornamented, rich mince pics, and the
meat to make the latter when it is
desired to make them at home. His
place is the leading source of supply
for swcetmcatT distributed by the
Emperor in the children's stockings
the night before Christmas.
Probably the most enterprising
grocers here are Messrs. Lewis &
Co., Hotel street. You cannot ima
gine u dainty or a luxury from any
quarter of the globe, which is cap
able of transportation in any form,
that cannot be obtained in their
shop. The variety of fruits they
obtain by every steamer makes their
shop suggestive of a California fruit
exhibition. Their establishment is
positively essential to the proper
administration of Santa Clausland
affairs in this quarter.
For the lone, lorn bachelors and
cognate characters, out alone in the
cold, cold world, the best apology
for a home Christmas keeping is to
be found in tlio Heaver (temperance)
Saloon of Mr. II. J. Nolte, and the
same gentleman's Casino in a neigh
boring park. Victims of the " vile
weed " can also get their consolation
in his varied stock of tobacco and
cigars, and dry characters slake
their thirst at his fountain. Mr.
Robert Donnolly keeps a place he
calls "The Fountain," at 123 Fort
street, where persons can treat each
other to anything in the smoke or
temperate and wholesome beverage
line. And this isono of the customs
of the land which blooms particularly
on Christmas Day.
