WHAT CAN BE DONE.
Mr. Lycan has shown, to a large
extent, what can he done in making
desert places glad. If all who arc
in a position to do so would follow
his example, the country would he
immcusely richer before the change
in its face could be icalizcd. It is
not necessary that the example should
be followed upon an equally exten
sive scale as iu the case cited.
Every man who owns or rents one
of the smallest sizes of cottage plots,
can be a benefactor of his kind and
his country by making two useful
plants grow where only one grew
before a greater one, peihaps, hy
causing one to grow where hitherto
nothing grew, or weeds sapped the
strength of the soil. There is very
little doubt that tcorcs of people
living here could be enlisted in the
cause of developing the riches of
our soil and climate, if they only
could be afforded intelligent direc
tion and sympathy. It is too much
to expect that persons who have
spent all of their lives, since they
left school, in mechanical, commer
cial and professional pursuits, should
be able to take up horticulture or
agriculture, upon the smallest scale,
and make it even a proiitable pas
time. As we have said over and
over, there is need of some organiza
tion here, for the promotion among
ull classes of an interest in tillage of
the ground. Either as a source of
livelihood, an auxiliary thereto,
or simply a pastime, the culti
vation of the ground has a hu
manizing influence over those en
gaging in it, which tends to make
them better men and women.
A YOUNC LADY'S EXAMPLE.
Few persons have become so widely
and favorably known so early in life
as Miss Nellie Lincoln Rossitcr, tho
American Silk Culturist. Misa
Rossiter was born in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, in 1867, and is there
fore only eighteen years old. Sho is
descended fiom an old and respect
able west of England family, a mem
ber of which went over to America
in the early colonial days. She first
came into public notice at tho age
of thirteen, through her exhibit of
silk and silk worms at the Philadel
phia State AgiiculturalFair in 1880.
Tho society under whose direction
the fair was held allotted her a first
prize, as "njustawaid of merit,"
and made special mention of her in
their annual report. From that time
to the present the name of Miss
Rossiter has been beforo the Ameri
can public, and her work is widely
known. She now occupies tho proud
position of being "the leading Silk
Culturist of America." 'flu's young
lady's exemplary character is thus
briefly outlined by the Kaleidoscope,
a Pennsylvania periodical for the
young: " She is a pleasant conver
sationalist, is thouglitful and obser
vant a practical and persistent
worker-r-'hus great strength of mind
1(1 lljiTfcfcSJihJl )))
and has been front her thirteenth
year tipwnrd far more womanly than
like n child. She Ims the happy
facility of ndapting herself to nil
circumstances Is pleasing, nliko lo
young and old is conscientious,
just, and truthful goneroiu to a
fault, and a loving and devoted
daughter."' Miss Rossllcr's ambition
is to bencdt humankind, and she
seeks the accomplishment of her
purpose by promoting silk culture.
What she has already done is won
derful, and she might well adopt as
her motto, "See what a girl can do I"
As stated in this paper a few days
ngo, she is desirous of arousing an
interest in the same good work on
Another correspondent ha9 taken
up the advocacy of having the police
drilled. It would be a good thing to
have the'cfllcicncy of tho men on the
force increased, even at the cost of
spoiling them as models of statuary.
An article in the Advertiser takes
a hopeful view of the condition and
prospects of the revenue. The in
creased production of sugar made
the value of exports last year larger
than that of the previous year, not
withstanding the shrinkage in prices.
Then the quantity of goods taken out
of bond made up in large pail to the
customs receipts for tho diminished
imports. The exports were, in 1883,
$8,133,343.88 ; in 188d, $8,184,922.
63. Customs revenue in 1883 was
6577,332.80; iu 1884, $551,73G.59,
a decrease of less than four and a
WASTE PLAGES MADE PLEASANT.
A few days ago the writer, with
note book and pencil, was conducted
by Mr. Lycan over his fruit farm in
the Kalihi mountains. The estate
comprises 100 acres, and slopes,
some places steeply, from the sum
mits of the mountains to tho stream
that courses down the adjacent
valley. It has been in the posses
sion of its present proprietor about
a year, and one who has not been
out there during that time would
hardly know the place, so great a
transformation has been effected.
Of the 21 acres under cultivation,
17 have been reclaimed from a
wilderness fetnte in that period. Foity
onc different kinds of tropical tre'es
arc growing on the estate. Most of
them give good promise of Miccess,
some having already had satisfactory
fruitage. A transcription of the
notes taken in a stroll over the
grounds will afford an idea of the
value of the woik beiug done by Mr.
Lycau in the much-discussed cause
of " diversified products." The
coffee trees yielded during the year
150 lbs. of excellent coffee : a gen
tleman who tested it has informed
us since that a better article could
not be purchased. Eleven Japanese
cherry trees produced 863 worth of
fruit. Here grows a cocoa tree, and
Mr. Lycan said this sample indicated
that it would thrive wonderfully
here. lie was getting peaches from
China which he thought would be all
right. It was a wasto of means, ho
considered, to import trees from the
temperate zones, and ho was, there
fore, plauting nothing except what
had been proved adaptable to this
climate. 'There were alligator pears
blooming and fruiting at the same
time, showing that peculiar fruit to
be a very generous rewarder of cul
tivation. Here arc Chinese liches
aud there the Tahiti vis. A largo
area is being given up to grape cul
ture, and the proprietor is experi
menting to ascertain the most favor
able ground for that purpose.
Madeira grapevines arc running
widely among sheltering weeds
There is a plot of vines cultivated in
a London hot-house and brought
here from Madeira. Thirty thousand
vines from California, including the
Southern Aestivilis. are expected by
the steamer of the 22nd inst. A
large area of sloping ground, stud
ded with trees, bristles with pine
apples. Elsewhero is growing a
variety of pineapple from Madeira,
which has' the peculiarity of being
without spikes. Oranges and lemons
are set all over the place, amidst the
young forest of other fruit trees.
Mr. Lycan pointed out an orange tree
that last year yielded 1280 beauti
ful oranges, and this year gave the
extraordinary return of 15G2. This
tree is only 15 years old, but it
beats the records of noted prolific
tho Coast. There
bearers Ton tho Coast, llicrc nro
400 oranges ticcs of choice vnrlctics
thriving upon the estate. English
walnuts aro on trial, but not suc
ceeding well. The melon Bhrub
grows well, and its cultivation is to
bo extended. There aro 25 chero
moln seedlings coining on well j also
specimens of the wongpa shrub from
China, the tnnmie apple, and the renl
custard apple', and the Chinese
orange. The peanut nourishes and
yields abundantly, as much as a
quait and a half having been gather
ed from one vine. Under glass arc
some healthy tea plants brought
from China by the late Dr. Damon.
It iB Mr. Lycan's intention to havo
an olive grove on the mouotaiu side,
and he expects a consignment of ten
thousand seedlings. A goodly num
ber hitherto planted have come on
so well as to justify him in growing
olives on a large scnle. The Sapnta
pear is being tried, also the passion
fruit, blackberry and raspbeny from
Cuba. Mr. Marsdcn is empowered
by Mr. Lycan to procure other
varieties of fruit from the 'West
Indies. While all these new ven
tures in fruit culttnc have been try
ing, banana raising has been carried
on extensively, six varieties being
cultivated. Among the rest arc
some bananas set out 25 years ago
by Mr. Morris, whose homestead was
the nucleus of Mr. Lycan's farm. The
greatest want of the estate at present
is a suitable system of irrigation.
That, however, is not likely to de
feat the cultivator's passion and the
energy which have made this spot in
the Kalihi wilds blossom like the
Marshal Sopor aud Oflicer Mchr
tens were up to their old tricks
again last evening, and were reward
ed by hauling in a Chinaman with
opium in possession. They visited
the Chinese wash-houses on King
Street, where they suspected opium
smoking. Coming to the room they .
found a wooden partition inside the
window and over that a curtain, the
consequence being that they were
unable to see in, aud the door was
also locked. However, they both
stood quietly outside the door, and
had not to wait long befoic they
heard footsteps and then the door
was unlocked. It was no sooner
opened than Mehrtens sprang in,
catching a Chinaman by the queue,
the latter at the time tin owiug some
thing away behind a baircl. A
candle, which was lit when they en
tered the room, got blown out, but
the Marshal quickly relit it and
looking behind the barrel found the
opium. A moment or two after
wards footsteps were heard over
head, and the Marshal and Mehr
tens noticed a trap .door leading to
the loom. They eventually found
an iron bar, and with two or three
blows made the trap door give away,
when they saw a Chinaman leaving
by the window with his opium and
fixings in his hand. He got out on to
the roof and made his escape, a
very narrow one. The Chinaman in
Ah Kim, who was arrested was
brought up this morning before
Justice Bickerton and sentenced to
one month's imprisonment at hard
labor and fined 50. The prisoner
looked as if six months' imprison
ment would be more suitable, as his
face boi e unmistakable traces of his
being a very bad opium smoker.
TRAIN THE POLICE.
Editok Bulletin- : After an ab
sence of several months on the other
Iblands, on my return to Oahti, with
a friend passing one of the palace
gates, I was struck witli the soldier
like appearance of tho sentinel on
duty. I wended my way to the
soldiers' barracks, and was surprised
to sec such an improvement in the
appearance of the men, clean condi
tion of the guns, carriages, imple
ments, etc. I have seen woise
where better might bo expected.
Great credit is duo to Btigadc-Major
The thought struck mo at once,
Sir. Editor, that the public would be
gratified very much to have a quali
fied instructor appointed to the police
force, who would diill, instruct them
in their duties, and all matters per
taining to the discipline of a police
force. The native police appears to
bo a fino body of men. With a
careful training I have no doubt they
would prove a credit to themselves
and become a most efficient body of
