It is with pleasure we find that
the discussion recently held in these
columns and elsewhere, upon the
subject of settling the land, has not
been without a measure of effect.
A joint-stouk company, to undertake
the settlement of available land on
this Island, has actually been a sub
ject of consultation among several
eanilalislb. One of thcin is even
enthusiastic- over the proposed un
dertaking, but, being a gentleman
of some practical knowledge of the
soil and its capabilities,' is not likely
to be carried away by any notions of
a visionary character. It K to be
hoped the matter will not end for
the" time in stieel talk, but that it
will be treated as the impoitant con
cern that it is. There is really
nothing more conspicuously lacking
to Honolulu than a thrifty popula
. tion of producers at the back of it.
Enough land fit for settlement, we
are assured. K available on this
Island alone, to bif-lain a great many
people of the needed clas. An
, active beginning in the good work
cannot be too .soon begun. First let
there be thorough discussion, then
organization, and next well-delibcr-atcd
methods. One of the very first
aims must be to get the most desira
ble settlers,, for results must depend
upon them as much as upon condi
tions of soil. Failure of initial
efforts in the advocated project
would be apt to be far-reaching in
evil results, while success might be
a revelation to all the estates of the
realm, containing the sure promise
of a prosperous national future.
Generally, we decline letters de
fending the authors or suggestors of
them against newspaper attacks,
until the Journal publishing the
offensive article has refused lo ad
mit a reply.
What a world of speculation as to
what the news may be, is crowded
into the few brief hours between the
signalling of the steamer and the
unburdening of her intelligence!
An ocean cable would take the spice
out of that short period, and would
sprinkle it pieccmcnl over the imme
diate moments of issue of the daily
MILLIONNAIRES VERSUS MECHANICS.
Kwtok Ilui.i.irn.v : Tho bold and
fearless way you expose anything
liko injustice irrespective of persons
gives mo confidence that you will
-tvo 1110 space for the following com
plaint. 1 see by your paper that
Air. Sprcckelb expects by the Mari
posa the fittings for the new bank.
Now, I think this really too bad
that Mr. Spreckcls should import
finished work, that could bo dono
just as good and probably as cheap
here, now that everything is down to
bedrock. This is not the first
or second time this has. occurred.
When the gentleman in question
built his palatial residence at Puna
huu, neaily everything win unpolled
finished. The only reason why the
house was not sent whole f 10m San
Francisco was because lie could not
get a packing case large enough.
Next they want a sign for their mer
cantile) house, comer Fort and
Queen Streets: it comet from San
Francisco all ready for fixing. The
wonder is they did not send the
building lo San Francisco and have
it alllxcd there. "N'c next conic to
the bank and olllces on Fort Street.
Everything that could be brought in
11 llnished state from San Francisco
was brought, including the fittings
for the bank. Truly the gentleman
must have a magician's wand to
make everything appear upon the
scene ready to look at. 'What makes
the matter more aggravating'is the
fact that during the last month or
two, 80 percent or more of the car
penters of Honolulu have been walk
ing the street with nothing lo do. I
am informed that in some cases
there is actual distress. 1 think the
mechanics as a whole should protest
against this sort of thing. If some
of our leading men would go on witli
work these dull times, not shut
down (which has been done in one
notable case), it would help a great
many over the stile. As you suggested
the other day if they have not a job,
make one ; and I think as things arc
now they would get value for their
money, apart from the duty the
rich owe the poor, for to my mind it
is not right that the few who have
had the opportunity to accumulate
should hoard what they have got,
and do no good for their fellow-mcri.
F. Downey, who was brought up
on lcmand from the lit for vagrancy
was let go, ho having found work to
do. Jas. Liloa, for the same offence,
was remanded for a week so as to
allow him to look out for work.

In the seulliug match at Sydney,
N. S. W., March 28th, between
Haitian and licaeh the latter won by
six lensths. The race wsis rowed
over the champion'-s course on the
Parramatta river. The attendance
was enormous, the weather favor
able and the water smooth. Roth
the oarsmen were in excellent con
dition. Haitian and Reach, after
the start, kept well together for
some distance. The race was close
and exciting and the scullers ap
proached the turning-post almost
bow and bow. The excitement
among the spectators was great
when pulling with all their strength
for the winning post Beach over
hauled Ilanlan and increased his
advantage until the very finish amid
Hie wildest excitement.
The University boat race between
Cambridge and Oxford came off
March 28th, on the River untunes,
England. The river banks were
lined with spectators, the water was
smooth and the conditions favored
the Oxford crew. Roth got off well
together, but Oxford soon took the
lead and maintained it to the end,
winning by three lengths. The
time of the race was 21.110, a trilling
improvement over the time one year
ago, when the record was 21. 39.
The improvement is not as great as
was anticipated in view of the finer
weather and smoother water.
Mr. Stanley Huntley, who is the
real author of these' famous humor
ous papers, is a thin, delicate man,
with an intelligent face and a nerv
ous, incisive way of talking and act
ing. He is the exact opposite of
Mr. Spoopcndyke, his famous clta-,
racier. Mr. Huntley is nearly -10
years old, and began his journalistic
work on the New York Tribune
under Horace Greeley. Tho second
day he had been on the paper he was
sent to report a meeting of tjie
Farmers' Club, which convened in
Cooper Institute. He did so, and
brought down to the office that
evening a racy account of the affair,
which, by the way, was exceedingly
lively. In the course of his story
lie managed to call the venerable
body "a lot of dunderheads," and
other choice names. As he had seen
the city editor send his copy up
stairs to tho composing-room the
day before through a hole in the
wtill, which led to a small elevator,
he poked his manuscript through
the name hole when he had finished
the account, and went home with
tho consciousness of having done
his whole duty, and done it well.
The next morning he found his
story on the first page of the paper
under several bold, black headlines,
and he went down to the ofllco very
well satisfied with himself nnd the
world. Ashe entered the office ho
noticed a, smile go nround the room,
but no 0110 offered to explain the
cause. In a fow minutes the city
editor bent for him.
"Did you do that Farmers' Club
meeting yesterday?" he asked.
"I did," replied the fntitie hu
morist. "What did you do with your re
port?" 'I sent it upstnirs through that
hole in the wall the same as you did
"The dickens you did!" replied
tho city editor wrathily. ''Well,
you have played thunder. You go
downstairs. Mr. Greeley wants to
DowtistaiiB Mr. lluutlcv went,
his good spirits all departed and his
heart in his mouth. He knocked at
the door of Mr. Greeley's den nnd
111 response lo a shrill "Gomo'in and
shut the door after you," he entered
the dingy room. Mr. Greeley was
writing.' He finished his sentence,
wheeled around in his chair, faced
the young reporter and remarked in
his high, quavering voice, "Well,
sir, what do you want?"
"You sent for 111c, sir."
"Yes, sir, that is what the city
"What's your name?"
"Oh! So you are the infernal
idiot who wrote the account of the
Farmers' Club, are you?"
If he had hit Huntley on the head
with his paste-pot he couldn't have
surprised him more. His speech
utterly forsook him.
"You attended that meeting, did

"Well, what did you do with vour

"Why, they did just what I said

"Young man, you shouldn't have

gieat editor, more in sorrow than in
anger. "I am the president of that

THE ECYPTIAN MAHDi.
The Mahdi is really a dervish who
professes to be a prophet ; a being
directly inspired by God and com
manded by him to chase the infidel
out of Egypt. He sends his emissa
ries in bands of half a dozen each
till over the country and these envoys
excite the people to make war on
the foreigner. Wherever there are
Bedouins there also are the Mahdi' s
soldiers ; that' is to say, the natives
form the Mahdi's arm', and will
continue to do so as long as Allah
seems to fight on his side. Com
