A party here offered to take the
return South Sea Island laborers to
their homes at a very reasonable
rate, on the condition that a new lot
of South Sea laboreis could be
brought here at the Government's
expense. The Government not hav
ing the spare money, and this being
about Hie time for tornadoes at the
Islands, it was deemed prudent and
expedient to defer matters until 1886.
On account of careless diiving by
a Chinaman this morning there came
near being a runaway. A Chinese
express ran into a gentleman's car
riage which was standing on Queen
stieet, near the sidewalk, and if it
had not been for a stout rope with
which the horse wns secured he
would surely have got away. He
jumped and reared and tried his
utmost to free himself.
Until a few days ago there was
an old well lying open in the corner
of the Bethel Union church yard,
beside the observatory. It has been
filled up, for the reason apparent in
the incident narrated below. A
drove of sheep got into the yard,
and one of them suillling about the
brink of the hole tumbled in head
long. Sheeplikc a procession of the
animals moved on the yawning
breach, until five of them were
stuggling at the bottom, ten feet
below the surface of the ground.
They were hauled up one by one
with a rope, strangely enough with
no broken necks or legs.

MR. BROWN'S LECTURE.
A large audience was present at
the lecture on the Yellowstone by
Mr. Arthur Brown last evening, in
the Y. M. C. A. hall. The lecturer
was introduced and at the close of
the lecture thanked on behalf of the
auditors, in graceful terms, by Mr;
Theo. IT. Davies. The lecturer
started from New York, rapidly
sketching the trip to Niagara Falls.
That everlasting wonder of creation
lie described in the most realistic
way, so that his bearers were filled
with uwo over bis experience beneath
the cataract thundering from 170
feet over his head. His description
of the geysers and other wonders of
the Yellowstone Park was no less
vivid, and full of graphic details
that the actual vision could scarcely
surpass for clearness. Mr. Brown's
peroration was an eloquent tribute
to the grandeur of Nature in the
wonderland he had been telling
AN ADDITION TOThTcIRCUS.
To-nioht Fryer's Circus will give
its closing performance. An entire
change of programme is promised.
The king and party will lend the
dignity of tlioir presence to the occa
sion. It will no doubt be one of the
finest evening's amusements enjoyed
by the Honolulu public for a long
time. Mr. Carle, one of the leading
acrobatic performers of the United
States, arrived by the Alameda, and
will assist in the performance to
night. A MUSICAL ARTIST ARRIVED.
The artist Signor A. Farini, one
of the world-renowned leading oper
atic baritones, arrived by the Ala
meda this morning, to make arrange
ments for a short season of concert
and operatic entertainments here.
The company, although not large,
will consist of a prima donna so
prano, prima donna contralto, tcnorc
robuslo, baritone and basso pro
fundo. Signor will bring the com
pany here if the people will give a
guarantee that part of the company's
expenses will be paid. Siguor brings
with him letters of introduction to
His Majesty and others, and pro
bably he can be induced to give a
concert at the Music Hall Friday
The Chinese drama has been re
moved from Wailuku toKahului and
now the "Celestial devotees" of the
dramatic art in this vicinity arc hav
ing their tastes catered to nightly in
a large wooden erection built fort he
purpose. Since the opening night
the usual stillness of the "Hat" has
been disturbed, and "night made
hideous" by blood-cirdling sounds
of heathen tragedy enacted on the
mimic stage. The members of the
orchestra, if not musical, are mus
cular, and only "distance lends
enchantment," the unfortunate en
forced listener must place himself
at a considerable distance before the
notes reach him in a mellowed tone.
THE MARSHAL'S TOUR.
At ten o'clock this morning Mar
shal Soper and party were at Waia
lua, all well. They were received
with honors at that place by the
Chinese residents, who greeted them
with fusillades of fuc-crackers and
other demonstrations. Mr. Ahuna,
merchant, gave them a luau. Capt.
Aldrich, of the Honolulu Rifles, was
with the party. Yesterday Officer
Kua nearly lost his life. His horse
got stuck in the dangerous quick
sand on Waimea beach, and with his
rider was sinking fast, when he was
hauled out by the Marshal's horse
with a rope fastened to "him some
way. Mr. McCandlcss, of the Ka
hnku ranch, had a narrow escape
from being lost in the quicksand,
while driving over it in a break re
cently. Persons contemplating a
journey that way will need to exer
cise the greatest caution. The Mar
shal's party may be expected in
town to-night or to-morrow morning.
A DEAD HORSE.
About live o'clock last evening a
large marc belonging to a Chinaman,
which was hauling a dray into town
on King street, fell down a short
distance south of the bridge. A
crowd gathered, and somebody re
commending brandy a bottle of that
beverage was procured and forced
down the animal's throat. Tempo
rarily revived by the draught, the
mare rose up, but in a few moments
staggered to the side of the street,
and falling smashed a gate post iu
front of a smithy. After a brief
struggle the poor beast died, and
the carcase lay surrounded by a big
crowd of Chinese and natives until
near dark, when it was removed. It
was a strong-looking animal, and
had been bought for 350 about six
weeks ago, from Mr. 13. B. Thomas.
Shortly after its purchase, it showed
signs of sickness, but the owner, on
the advice of friends, declined to
havo it treated by a veterinarian
who offered to cure it for 810. It
is supposed the Chinaman tried to
get more work out of the animal
than it was able for.
Editor Uuu.rriN: Supposing this
conscientious temperance people
here there are a few, no doubt
would have certain sections of the
liquor law tested. Say Sections 21,
25, 2G, 27, ill, !J7, -10, 41, 42,
what would bo the result?
Supposing it could bo shewn to
the Government, that, were licenses
granted to responsible parsons for
the sale of beers and light wines
only, it would surely decrease the
call or desire for spirits, hence a
decrease in crime and misery, this
only needs a trial.
Supposing such a house were to
bo allowed to open on the above un
derstanding, no spirits could bs
bought there, but wine or beer could
at say 10 cents per glass, whut
would be the result? Try it.
As a large class of our foreign
population have been from childhood
users of wine, but not spirits, and
could they procure a glass of good
wine for 10 cents, is it to be sup
posed they would pay 25 cents for a
glass of spirits? Hardly.
Supposing the "reformers" wcro
to act more and talk or write less,
and instead of damning the onc3
who sell liquor, prevent their mak
ing such profits, causing so much
misery and breaking the laws every
day and hour.
Supposing the duties on beers and
wines should be reduced and tlipt on
spirits inct eased, what would be the
Supposing the strictly temperate
people were to abstain from cnlling
those who drink beer or wine "the
worst kind of intemperate men."
Supposing, instead of vitupera
tion, such as one reads ov hears in
nlmost every so called temperance
( ?) discourse, they should give the
credit to even moderate drinker who
have never drunk spirits, and I
assure you there arc such.
Supposing instead of cursing the
sellers of "liquid damnation" as a
big chief ( ?) styles it, they should
"Fight the devil witli tire" i. e.,
endeavor to enforce the provisions
of the liquor law.
Supposing none of them dare to
do it, as, should they a customer
might be angered, but it hurts no
one, nor docs it result in any good
to quote Scripture pro or con, or
write long screeds to prove that
liquor is injurious every body
knows that, those who drink it know
it the best but say, "T crave some
thing could I get wine good and
cheap I would not drink spirits."
Now, gentlemen of the temperance
circles, what are you going to no
