IRRIGATION FOR FRUIT.
The San Francisco Chronicle says
it is being demonstrated every year
that the amount of irrigation re
quired by fruit-trees in the dry por
tions of California lias been greatly
over-estimated. "The fact that soil
that is irrigated becomes so filled
with moisture after a while as to
need little additional water is also
receiving exemplification. Mention
is made of fruit-trees in the colonics
of the driest portion of the Fresno
plains, which are in full bearing and
loaded with fruit, and which have
been irrigated but twice in live
years." There may be a hint of
untold value in this information, for
the people of these Islands. Prac
tical experimentation is proving on
the ground that fruit-raising may be
made one of the most important
industries of this country. If it is
a fact, as the above indicates, that
fruit-trees require only a small
amount of irrigation, then many
large areas on these Islands now
arid and waste might be made to
produce an infinite wealth of fruit
exportable, if not in a law, in s
preserved state. One of the recog
nized obstacles to the utilization of
a great portion of our arable soil is
the difficulty of irrigation. There
foic, wisdom would dictate that the
pioneer culture should be that re
quiring the least amount of mois
ture for inducing gi owth and healthy
maturity. Fruit-tiees would them
selves conserve the natural affusion
of moisture, perhaps in many now
barren spots to the extent of mak
ing other descriptions of vegetation
flourish beneath their shade.
ANOTHER DANIEL GOME TO JUDG
MENT. The San Francisco Merchant goes
rather out of its way to join hands
with the opponents of the Hawaiian
gold law. It further, no doubt un
intentionally, does this paper, at
least, the injustice of charging it
with opposition to Messrs. Sprcckcls'
savings bank, by saying that all the
local press, with the exception of
the Advertiser, "appears to be either
actively or covertly in opposition to
it" (the bank). "While wo consider
that tho Government had no right to
promote tho establishment of a pri
vate savings bank, while enjoined by
statute to establish a public institu
tion of that kind, still it would be
folly to oppose the private concern
for the dereliction of the Govern
ment. Much injustice, also, we
submit, is done Bishop's Bank by
the implication of the Merchant that
it was compelled by the enterprise
of its rival to re-open a savings
depaitmenl. The fact is that tho
concern in question went out of that
field paitly to give full scope to the
Government scheme, and partly
owing to the unsettled state of the
currency ; besides tho bank had all
the funds it could invest profitably
without making use of the savings
of the people. When it became
evident that the Government had
abandoned tho legislative bcherae,
and at the solicitation of an influen
tial number of its customers, Bis
hop's Bank restored its savings
department in perfectly legitimate
competition with its private rival.
Another charge the Merchant makes
against Bishop's Bank is that a chief
reason for the enactment of a gold
standard was to put "unearned
dollars" into the pockets of the
owncrs'of that institution. Thin is
not so. Tho head of tho house in
question, if ho was a supporter of
the gold law, was a roluctant one.
That measure was a result of tho
united deliberation of the wholo
business community. Without any
precious metals of its own, the king
dom had the whole world to go to
for the most stable currency pro
curable. Therefore, the legislature,
at the instance of the business com
munity, wisely adopted the gold
standard. It is the default of the
Government in administering the
gold law which is putting many
thousands of "unearned dollars"
into the pockets of both foes and
friends of tho mensurc. Opposition
to the gold standard adopted by this
country comes with a bad grace
from our neighbors across the water.
One of the chief reasons for the
measure lay in the action of the
United States Government, in insist
ing that the customs duties of this
kingdom should be paid in gold. It
was held, and enforced upon tho
attention of the Hawaiian Govern
ment, that the payment of duties in
silver was a. disci imination against
American trade under the treaty.
Under anything but a gold standard,
this decree of our powerful neighbor
would be a real hardship to the peo
ple of this country.
CURE FOR SEASICKNESS.
A Yankee skipper gives the fol
lowing as a cure for seasickness,
which he found to work like a chaim
in nine cases out of ten. lie got it
in Liverpool from ,the captain of a
"Mix 2 ounces of dry chloride
of lime with 8 ounces of water ; add
10 ounces of alcohol to the mix
ture. Roil this mixture down 5J
ounces. Dilute with 38 ounces of
water, flavor with a few drops of
bitter almonds, and color with a
weak solution of cochineal. One or
two tablcspoonfuls taken before go
ing on board the ship, or before it
leaves the pier, will nearly always
wholly prevent seasickness. A
spoonful taken while the ailment is
running its course will always relieve
the pain of vomiting, and usually
stop it altogether."
"The Health Journal and Tem
perance Advocate" is the title of a
new magazine issued by the Pacific
Press Publishing Co., Oakland, Cal.
It is well edited and handsomely
printed, and published bi-monthly
at fifty cents a year. Such a publi
cation cannot but benefit households
in which it is taken and read.
Mr. M. Thompson, barrister, lias
our thanks for a parcel of American
papers and public documents, from
which we have no doubt much inter
esting information can be culled for
our readers. Mr. Ilutton is also to
be thanked for illustrated and other
Paris papers, containing full ac
counts of the obsequies of Victor
Tho latest sensation, in connec
tion with the St. Louis murder, is
that Cook's Tourist Company in
England doubts that Prellcr was
murdered. His life was insured in
that company for a large amount,
and the suspicion js harbored that
the body found in the coflin was a
medical college subject, and the case
was a put-up job between Preller
and Maxwell to get the insurance.
From the Foreign Office we have
received two copies of a pamphlet
prepared by Mr. R. Socman, Ha
waiian Consul at the Azores, show
ing the aggregate amount remitted
by Portuguese in this country to
friends at home, during the year
1881. The number of remittances
was 975, and tho total sum forward
ed was $37,503, or nn average of
$38.52 in each remittance. This is
a creditable showing for the thrift
of the Portuguese who have come
to this country.
