as to' the definition of the term

Mil. John Nott, Chief Engineer
of the Fire Department, is expected
to return from his visit East in about
six weeks. It is happily suggested
to us that the Department give the

can doubtless be depended upon,
between now and then, to arrange
for " painting the town red."
"Bhiggs, " said a Kaahumanu

lecture ought to be delivered in every
town on the Pacific Coast, and I
sincerely hope it will be, as. I would
like every Comrade of the G. A. R.

It has become a common practice
of people of Honolulu and its
suburbs to place barrels and boxes
of rubbish on the roads to be carted
away. Sometimes the receptacles
arc left" out whole days, making un
sightly objects, frightening horses by
day, and becoming stumbling blocks
by night. A gentleman well posted
says that such a practice would not
be allowed in any civilized city ex
Tins morning about ten o'clock,
Road Supervisor Hart left his marc
and buggy standing in charge of a
Chinaman on Brewer's wharf while
he went on board tho Waimanalo.
He told John not to touch the ani
mal, but to stand closely by and
watch her. On stepping ashore
again, Mr. Hart found his team
gone. Tho Chinaman was standing
dazedly looking uptown, and at
length found words to explain the
situation: "Shclunup stlcct like
curried mutton. In tho mean
time the maro careered through the
town, exciting apprehensions that a
Government billet was vacant while
half tho Cabinet was away. The
team drew up at the owner's house,
Berctania street. An axle was bont
and a trace broken: otherwise no
damage was done.
A POSTAL REGULATION.
Recently Hon. II. M. Whitney,
P. M. G., received communications
from tho United States Post Office
Depaitment, complaining of letters
being sent from this kingdom out
side of the mails. This practice, it
was represented, imposed upon tho
United States the free transmission
of all letters for distant points,
which aro not entered upon tho way
bill of tho Hawaiian Post Office.
According to its obligations in the
Postal Union, this country is charge
able with tho cost of transporting
its mail matter through or from tho
United States to other members of
tho Union. Letters mailed here on
board ships, and not way-billed or
impressed with the Post Olllco
stamp, have been forwarded from
San Francisco at the expense of tho
United States, and unfairly so. This
evasion of its legitimate share of the
Union burdens, which tho kingdom
has been guilty of through tho
action of private residents, has as
sumed considerable pioportions,
One vessel recently carried away six
hundred letters outside of tho Post
Olllco mails. Beforo tho last steamer
sailed tho Postmaster-General gave
orders to tho purser to reeeivo no
letters on board, and tho public
were notified to send none there. To
give the utmost time for late corres
pondents, the late letter bag at the
Post Office was kept open until ten
minutes before the steamer's depar
ture. Now and henceforth, no
letters except those marked "Con
signee's letter" can be sent outside
of the regular mails.
HOME MISSION WORK.
At the Bethel Union last evening,
the subject was "Home Missions."
Mr. A. L. Smith gave an interesting
account of the work in connection
with the Kaumakapili Sunday School.
The same formulas of lessons are'
used as in English Sunday schools.
These lessons are printed two weeks
in advance by the Kuokoa, native
paper. Theso prints are also put
on slips for distribution among the
district schools. Under tho auspices
of tho Kaumakapili School there arc
eleven district- schools, in different
parts of the city. At tho end of
each quarter there is a general re
view, when tho schools of thcfelevcn
districts assemble in the church.
On these occasions the building is
densely crowded, not only the pupils,
but also the parents attending in
full force. The school work is, of
course, carried on in the native lan
guage, but there is one class con
ducted in English. The educational
results of the operations of the daj
schools arc very perceptibly mani
fest in that the scholars are acquiring
more and more proficiency in the
English language. The Sunday
school teachers and the members of
the Y. M. C. A. co-operate in the
visitation of families and in the
holding of various religious meet
ings. Many of those connected
with the Sunday school, and who
gave promiso of better things, have
gone down under the tide of iniquity
let loose among the native popula
tion by the repeal of the prohibitory
clauses of tho liquor law. Some,
however, of these, have been re
claimed. Sunday school work among
the natives is also being vigorously
prosecuted in the Kawaiahao Church,
which has an organization probably
twice as large as that of tho Kau
makapili, and in which the students
of the Kawaiahao Seminary are
Mr. S. D. Fuller based his re
marks on the text: "Go home to
thy friends and tell them how great
things the Lord hath done for thee ;"
and claimed that the Young Men's
Christian Association is the great
Home Mission institution of the
century. It was originated in Lon
don by George Williams, who com
menced operations by inviting young
men to his own rooms to counsel and
direct them in tho ways of good
morals and practical religion. In
181G, the organization was formally-
inaugurated in England. Iu 1851,
tho first "Y. . M. C. A. in America was
formed in Montreal, Canada, follow
ed about nine days later by the first
in the United States, floated by the
young men of Bost.on, Mass. The
institution is now co-cxtensivc with
tho Christian church, and its most
effective auxiliary. In the world,
thcro arc 2,500 associations with a
membership of 200,000, and owning
buildings to tho value of 84,000,000.
The success of tho institution is
largely duo to its going specifically
for a certain object and then plan
ning and working for its attainment.
Thcro were four classes of men iu
America to whom tho members of
tho several associations devoted a
great deal of their attention ; viz :
Railroad men, tho Freemen of the
South, Commercial travelers and
College boys, and with whom they
were eminently successful. Their
work is all Home Mission work
from end to end. It was by labor
ing iu tho lino of the Y. M. C. A.
work that D. L. Moody and others
achieved that success in evangelistic
work which has made them lights
in the world. Students in theology;
by identifying themselves with this
institution are trained iu the practi
cal cxerciso of the duties of their
prospective calling j and by engag
ing iu Home Mission work, many
of them have been led to devote
themselves to service in the Foreign
