HAWAIIAN ALMANAC AND ANNUAL.
This useful handbook reaches its
eleventh year in the issuo for 1885.
The usual almanac matter in tho
first of the book is interspersed with
information regarding distances by
land and sea between all places on
the Islands, a list of free .imports
from tho United States by. tronty,
and resources, developed and other
wise, of the country, also popula
tion and vital statistics. Then come
full post office and commercial sta
tistics, covering many years back ;
the appropriation bills of the past
and present biennial periods, and
tables of revenues and expenditures
of the Kingdom, dating back to
1856-7. In "the literary department
we have a Hawaiian legend, called,
"The Story of Kalelcaluaka," con
tributed by Dr. N. B. Emerson;
"Hawaiian Names of Relationship,
etc.," in reply to Rev. C. M. Hyde,
in last number, by Judgo Fornauder ;
"Retrospect of the Year 1884," by
the editor; "Music in Honolulu,"
a readable article by Mr. Bcrger,
band-master, and a description of
tho Library building. Judge For
nauder in his paper combats Dr.
Hyde's estimate of ancient moral
characteristics of the Hawaiian race,
and gives expression to tho following
gauguinc view of its present status :
" I hava had opportunities of
knowing this people for fifty years.
I saw them probably at their lowest
ebb, immediately after the disturb
ance of Kaoiui in 1803 ; I raw them
again during tho occupation of Lord
George l'aulct in 181!), and have
lived hero ever since, noting the
upward progress of the people ; and
1 feel justified in saying that the
moral malaria which was the in
evitable result of the sudden transi
tion from one condition of life to
another has spent its force, and
that the moral sentiment of the
people now is sufllcienlly strong to
frown down and to prevent a repe
tition of the scenes which disgraced
the earlier years of this transition
Fiiithcr on he buys?
"Let the Doctor thank God for
what has been done, and soften his
impationcc by the reflection that the
transition period of his and my an
cestors extended over several centu
ries ;4anU that even now some ol the
lower strata of Europe probably do
not stand any higher in civilization
than corresponding strata in Ha
waii." Other information given in the
handbook includes custom house
regulations, port charges, carriage
regulations and fares, a list of sugar
plantations and mills, marine casual
ties for the Hawaiian Islands for
188 1, hearing and distances, table
of elevations of principal localities,
postal service, information for
tourists, Honolulu meteorological
summary, table of internal taxes for
last period, quick passages, list of
Hawaiian registered vessels, and
Hawaiian register and directory. In
the latter the Buu.r.nx is erroneously
put down as a morning paper. One
of those avoidable disfigurements
an "errata" and several typogra
phical errors constitute the only
noteworthy defect of this highly
useful and remarkably comprehen
sive annual. It is printed and pub
lished by Mr. Tlios. G. Thrum,
Merchant and Fort streets, and no
resident should be without it.
Mr. Ilanlon, whose experience of
horses entitles him to a hearing, ex
presses the opinion that there is no
glanders here. It is to be feared
that facts are too plentiful and strong
against such-a belief. Horses that
had been well cared for have been
stricken beyond relief from tho best
The professor of journalism, in
to-day's lecture in the Saturday
Press, says more than half of the
local happenings in Honolulu arc,
capable of humorous treatment.
True: for instance: "Mr. Snooks
has put a barbed wire fence round
his turkey ranch at Waikiki. The
editors of our esteemed contempor
aries will have to depend upon

A week's march neaicr life's goal
for all, but the currency deadlock is
another week behind the time that
it should have been dissolved. Has
the Government not even a promise
to offer for the relief of the minds
concerned in trade? It seems to
need a little poking up by tho Cham
ber of Commerce, that is, if the latter
body has itself arrived at unity of
ideas upon the subject. " A plague
o' bpth your houses" is the increas
ing sentiment of the community.

AN OPINION ON CLANDERS.
Edjtou Bulletin: I wish you
would give notice to owners of horses
that glanders cannot be here as re
potted. I have seen horses hero
running at the nose for months, and
there is no harm to others that feed
with them. The best thing to do
for sick horses, is a good warm stablo,
treat them well for about six weeks,
and 1 think all good horses would
got well. The best placo for a stable
is near salt water, and then ono to
every ten need not be destroyed.
Tho undersigned heartily thanks
the kind friends who have so gen
erously contributed to the present, of
one hundred dollars, to make up for
my losses by the late storm, and
my least wish for thorn is that tho
stolms of life may beat gently upon
