The Chinese drama has been re
moved from Wailuku to Knhulnl and
now the "Celestial devotees" of the
dramatic art in this vicinity are hav
ing their tastes catered to "nightly in
a largo wooden erection built fort he
purpose. Since the opening night
the usual stillness of the "Hat" lias
lircn disturbed, and "night made
hideous" by blood-eirdling ound
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.
Molokai is looking more green
tlmu over. Thcro was abundance of
rain last week,' but none this week.
The cattle are fat and in good order.
Pheasants are said to be as thick as
Hies. Everything is lovely at Meyer's
ranch. Slonsarrat has surveyed the
whole of the western half of the
island. The steamer .1. I. Dowselt
arrived there late last evening, and
the tide being high she had to wait
until this morning to take on board
the cattle and sheep. Shu arrived

' ACROSS THE ISLAND.
Mr. W. W. Hall returned lately
from a visit to Waimannlo. lie re
ports the mill on that plantation still
grinding out.from 12 to 13 tons of
sugar per day, and enough cane
assured to keep it going till the end
of the year. The prospects for
another immense crop arc very pro
mising. Mr. Hall went by the Nuu
anu Pali, but returned by way of
Diamond Head. Leaving "vVaima
nalo, Makapuu Point was passed
along shore. It is three miles from
Coco Head. From it the road runs
inland, passing Niu, Wailupe, Waia
lae and Palolo valleys. Mr. Hall
was delighted with those valleys.
For pasture they are much of a
kind with the Honouliuli ranges.
Springs of water abound everywhere.
At Waialac there is a splendid grove
of cocoanut palms. From Waialae
the road strikes off past Diamond
Head, comin;; into scenes familiar to
the eyes of. Honolulu people.
TRADE WITH MEXICO.
Mr. It. W. Laine, Consul for
Mexico, in answer to a question as
to what this country could send to
Mexico by the new Chinese-Mexican
line to call here, said Mexico
ought to take a good deal of Ha
waiian sugar and rice. Although
Mexico was a sugar country, natu
rally, she did not raise much of the
article nothing like the amount of
her consumption. Ho believed the
projected communication with Mex
ico was worthy the encouragement
of this country, as it might be the
means of developing a lucrative

of South Sea laborers could be
