Some thrifty natives have taken
advantage of the people's misfor

to put money into their own pockets.

show their avarice by charging ex

PLAIN, BUT NOT CONSPICUOUS.
The following interesting conver
sation occurred between a rising
young lawyer and a witness in a
recent case, in which a certain tree
played a prominent part. The scene
might have beon laid in Honolulu :
, Lawyer M. Did you see this tree
near the roadside?
Witness Yes, sir, I saw it very
Lawyer M. It was very conspi
Witness Well, I can't say that,
I saw the tree very plainly, though.
Lawyer M. Well, now, I would
like to know why, if it was plain, it
wasn't conspicuous. What is the
difference between plain and conspi
cuous? Answer that, sir, will you?
Well, replied the witness, it is this.
I come into this court-room and
glance over the bar. I see you
plainly among other lawyers, al
though you are not a bit conspicuous.
This being the young lawyer's
second setback in the court, he
thinks he will trade off his "sheep
skin" for a pair of roller skates.
TRIAL OF A KAHUNA.
This morning a native woman was
arraigned upon three separate
charges, before the Poliqc Judge,
for practising medicine without li
cense. The details elicited were of
a shocking nature. According to
the cvidenco tho "kahuna" was
called to attend upon another native
woman, who died after dreadful ex
periences under her hands. Nause
ous and probably noxious nostrums
were administered internally to the
sick woman, while a portion of the
external treatment consisted in ap
plications of horso manure. It was
testified that the kahuna claimed to
rely .mainly upon prayer.
In her defense, the kahuna made
a general denial of tho charges, say
ing she had declined to attend upon
tho patient and advised the hitter's
friends to procure a foreign doctor.
Her statement, however, did not
avail to weigh against the evidence
for tho prosecution, and she was
fined 850, her counsel, however,
appealing to the Supreme Court.
The other two cases were, at de
fendant's request, remanded till the
11th. Messrs. Kinney and Pelcr
t.on appeared for her.
Fioin a cprrespondent at Hilo,
Hawaii, the following intelligence
lias been lcceived. The schooner
Emma Claudina, which was lying at
anchor off Papaikou a week ago
Sunday, was, during a furious gale
from the S. E., expected to be diiven
ashore. The damage done to the
plantations is very extensive. Somo
whaives and landings were swept
awa', and enne blown down. At
Puna the sea was higher than it was
in 18C8. Many think there was a tidal
wave together wllh tho storm. At
Hilo, says tho writer, wo did not
suffer much, as the wind came from
thcS. E. Capt. Maslon of the
Emma Claudiim was capsized while
landing at Papaikou, and as he
could not swim he came very near
being drowned. Ho was lescucd,
however, in an insensible state, and
was with difficulty resuscitated, and
taken to Hilo for medical treatment.
The shock and chill were so severe
that they brought on congestion of
the lungs. lie la said to be improv
ing and likely to bo about in a few
days. At Laiipaliochoc and llnka
lau the damage done is estimated at
$5,000 lo cacli plantation. Amongst
the mischief done by the gale was
the destruction of the wharves at
Paukaa, Papaikou, Honomu, Pepce
keo and Onouiea, together with many
Humes blown down. The schooner
Waimalu narrowly escaped destruc
tion. She had lost both anchors and
her only support was a line made
fast to a buoy.
RESULTS OF THE STORM.
The following extracts from letters
written by plantation managers,
show that reports of damage by the
recent storm have in sonic casc3
been much exaggerated. Uthcr ac
counts of the storm, ciowded out of
yesterday's issue, appear to-day:
Mr. Clias. Koelling, manager,
writes, July 31st: "On the 27th
instant we had a severe storm and
freshet which carried away the Ila
nalei bridge and also all the smaller
bridges along the Government road.
The freshet was the highest known
since the commencement of the
plantation. Communication is com
pletely stopped for horse and man
with Waioli. It is impossible to
estimate the damage done at pres
ent." nioVPAl'KAA, HAWAII.
Mr. M. N. Sanders, manager,
writes, July liOtli: "We have had
a very hard storm of wind and rain
and a heavy sea. On Monday the
20th, the storm was the hardest
and carried away our Ilonolii dam,
which supplies water to the mill
power. Our cane for the
188G oiop is badly blown down and
will, I fear, make the crop fall short
somewhat; but have not had time to
look into it much."
ritOM HONOMU, HAWAII.
Mr. Wm. Kinney, manager,
writes, July 29th: "Our landing
is gone ; but still we are ready for
the Mana schooner. Some "other
damages, too ; but putting it alto
gether it is not more than 8300."

letter of Wednesday, but will rather
FKOV ONOMBA, HAWAII.
Mr. II. fJ. Austin, manager,
writes, July 31st: "Last Sunday
was a very disastrous da' with us,
the elements having full sway. Our
dock and crane at the landing were
swept away by the tidal waves and
about jj of our Punioi bridge was
blown over. I am now
at work on the bridge, and think I
can have it working again in about
two weeks, as most of the lumber
will work up again. The founda
tion of our dock was rock, which
was not washed away, and I can
ship sugar with it as it is without a
great deal of trouble. My damages
will probably amount to $500."
A sad and fatal accident occurred
at Moaula, this neighborhood, on
the Kith iiist. A young native girl,
from, it is supposed, playing with
matches, set her clothes on fire and
was dreadfully burned before the
Humes were subdued. After linger
ing some hours, she died the name
The consecration of the Pahala
Catholic Church took place on Sun
day, 19th inst. Tho weather was
all that could be wished for the
occasion, and there was a large at
tendance of worshippers, the church
being crowded to its fullest capa
city. The Rev. Father C. Puizot,
of Hilo, was tho officiating priest,
assisted by Rev. Father C, N. Rua
net, the priest in charge, and four
others. Three sermons were preached
during tho morning, in different
languages, English, Hawaiian and
Portuguese. The church has been
about a year in course of construc
tion, is near tho plantation works,
on land presented to the mission by
the Hon. C. R. Bishop.
A largo party of visitors arrived
by tho steamer W. G. Hall on
Thursday night en route to the Vol
cano, amongst them being Messrs.
Gus Sprecklcs, J. Buck, Wm. G.
Irwin and Hon. S. Parker.
On Sunday and Sunday night oc
curred the heaviest storm of wind
and lain that has been known in
Kau for many years. The wind was
from N. E. and reached its highest
point on Sunday night. Consider
able damage was done to the Humes
at Pahala, some being blown down.
Kapapaia suffered much from walls
washed away and broken water
pipes, which will entail considerable
time and cost to put right again.
Punaluti had a Chinese store washed
away, the wharf considerably dam
aged and the II. A. Co.'s scow
broken up, besides several cases of
minor damage. At Honuapo most
of the wharf was carried away.
A part of the party of Volcano
visitors returned on Sunday; being
caught in the Hist part of tho stoim
and having a damp look on arrival
here. They repoitod Mr. Irwin as
being very sick at Kilaiica and yes
terday help was sent him by Mr.
Foster in the way of medicines, &c.
To-day the AV. G. Hall has gone to
Kcauhoit to fetch him and tlio ba
lance of the party back to Kau. In
connection with this what an im
provement it would be if a few com
mon and necessary medicines were
kept at the Volcano House. At the
present time Pahala is the nearest
place where such things can bo ob
tained if any one happens to fall ill
at the place. 0.72-100 inches was

The cane is looking well here.
The mill will shut down shoi tly for
a month or so for repairs, to start
up again on completion, to take off
what I think will be the largest crop
yet taken off here, or any other
plantation on the island by one mill.
Pahala, July 28th.
The Rev. S. 13. Bishop occupied
the pulpit of the Uctlicl Union in the
morning, and discoursed on Psalm
xc, 2: "Before the mountains
wcie brought forth, or ever thou
didst form the cailh and the woild,
from everlasting to everlasting thou
art God." The observations made
upon the recent exploration of tho
desert island of Nihoa were cited as
illustrative of the great antiquity of
the earth. The researches of geology
in modern times, show the eons up
on cons that elapsed in the forma
tive processes of the globe wo in
habit. Viewing Nihoa in the light
of geological science, we find that it
is of older formation than the other
island's of the group ; it suggests the
countless ages that must have
elapsed since the foundations of the
mountains were laid; and we aie
carried back through these ages
until tho mind reels with tlio thought,
and must stop to rest, and then try
again. And though geology stretches
the imagination, as it were, to its
utmost tension, in contemplating
the tertiary, the secondary, and the
aicliaicjpciiods of the earth's form
ation ; the words of the text bring
us to a period yet more remote, and
there we find the everlasting God
and Father of all, beautifying the
universe with his all-pcrvadingpies-encc.
Not only does it reveal the
past eternity of the Deity, but it
throws us forward into the limitless
imineasmablc cycles of the future,
and there still the tex'tsays, "Thou
art God." The investigations of
geology, icferred to, demonstrate
the infinitesimal littleness of the
space of time allotted to man in the

the same time, under tho beneficent

revelation, the conceptions of Deity,
to the minds of the inhabitants of
these islands, were invariably awe
inspiring and terrible. The horrid
features stamped upon. tlio nncicit
gods of Hawaii indicate that Deity,
to them, was invested only with at
tributes of terror. It is only
through the knowledge of tho gospel
of Jesus Christ that they and we
arc brought to right conceptions of
those things. And il is manifestly

cd his lcmarks ehietiy to young
men, who were cxhoited in a dis
course of clear, well-put arguments
to wcigli careful!' the all important
questions of (1) What this life is
and (2) what ought to be done with
it. Tho man who will not be a bond
servant of men will cherish a large
amount of self-respect', and maintain
his own individuality. Self-respect
will prevent him from falling into
low aid vicious courses of conduct j
tho conservation and assertion of his
own individuality will keep him
from following the multitude to do
evil, and he will have a better
standard of .action than "they say"

of life when adopted, acted upon as
authoritative, only reveal imbecility
