The Ililo Planter's Society, at a

They desMbed it as entirely uncalled

tional; the carrying of its provi-i
isions as the first steps in annulling
the independence of the Hawaiian
Kingdom; subversive of all proper
'and needful discipline on plantations,
ami tending to aggravate rather than
diminish the present evils attendant
on all labor' enterprises now existing
on these isles.

eighteen days, as required by one
of the conditions upon which the
subsidy is granted. The other
colonies, however, have not yet been
heard from. It is probable that
they may do something to secure
,the mail service via this city.

ISLAND OF NIH0A.
Capt. Kibling, of the schooner
Waiehu, reports having made a two
days' visit to Nihoa. About twenty
native passongers landed and spent
the night ashore. They found that
the fire, started by the Honolulu ex
cursionists a couple of months ago,
had not extended over more than
about twenty acres. It had, happily,
left the palm groves unscathed.
Captain Kibling brought away a
sample of the Nihoa soil for ana
lysis. Ho believes it lias no com
mercial value as guano.
Some two or three Chinamen were
up a short time ago before the Court
in San Francisco for violating tho
laws by their presence. Whether
they contravened any laws national
or International by presuming to
exist lias not yet been decided. But
tho propriety of annexing thorn to
tho population of tho American
Continent was settled in brief order.
When shown the "no admittance"
sign over tho Golden Gate, they re
quested leave to embark for Victo
ria, but wcro refused. Then they
tried for Mexico, but tho road to
Mexico was also closed. There was
no communication left open except
tho road back to tho flowery land.
Tho Pacific Coast authorities evi
dently mean business in their Chi
nese prohibition decrees.
A Chinaman, found painting
sign yesterday, was arrested
violation of the Sunday laws.
couple of kanakas breaking a horse
on Bcrctania street, and making at
least twenty times as much disturb
ance as the Chinese painter, not to
speak of the brutality exhibited by
the trainers, on the same Sunday
afternoon, were not arrested. A
white man, on a Saturday night
racket, made Hotel street ring with
blasphemy and blackguardism, and
was not nrrested. Another white
man running a beer shop on Queen
street, had gathered round a num
ber of roughs who made things so
lively that a policeman was called,
and stationed on or near the pre
mises, but as in tho two preceding
cases, nobody was run in.
HARD TO PLEASE.
A lady of exact mathematical
principles, went a-shopping one day
in a city somewhere in the vicinity
of Diamond Head. Taking up a
spool of thread, bearing the usual
"warranted 400 yards" label, she
wished to ascertain if it would stand
tho test of actual measurement.
The obliging salesman proceeded to
unwind and measure the thread,
which held out to 398 yards and
then paused. Another spool was
tested with similar exemplary pa
tience and rectitude and held out
the 400. The customer, however,
would not have even the honest
spool, saying that she wanted one
not unwound. The genial shopman
produced an unmeasured spool, and
thereupon gathered the 25 cents
into the till, proceeds of a sale of
cotton thread, and afterwards turn
ed his attention to winding up the
unwound spools, while he cogitated
over the pecuniary value to its
possessor of a mathematical mind.
FOOTSTEPS OF ST. PAUL..
Fort Street Church was well filled
last evening. A .union service was
held by the Fort Street and Bethel
congregations for the purpose of
hearing Major Dane's address on
" Along the Footsteps of St. Paul."
It is enough to say that tho lecturer
fully sustained his previously well
earned reputation as an able deline
ator of persons and places. The
lecture closed with a general sketch
of Mission Work among the Greeks,
commenced b3r Mrs. Hill in 1831,
and a particular account of the
labors of Rev. D. Z. Sakellarios, a
young native Greek missionary re
cently educated in the United States,
but whose enterprises have been
confined to narrow limits" for want
of funds. The speaker announced,
that, there and then, the audience
present would be afforded the
" privilege" of contributing through
their pastors, towards the enlarge
ment of Mr. Sakellarios's sphero of
usefulness, whereupon the contribu
tion boxes were passed round, and
the sum of 87G.20 realized. Major
Dane is expected to speak, through
an interpreter, at one of the native
churches on Sunday evening next,
when another collection will be
taken for the same object. .
A Chinese cook, employed bjr
Wong Quai, who lives on the plains,
was robbed on Bcrctania street, at
Thomas Square, about ten o'clock
on Saturday evening, by native ban
ditti. Mr. W. Maertens, who lives
close to the Square, says that be
tween ten and half-past, while he
was seated, talking to a friend, in
his house, they heard cries of "Haul
in," on the street. Going out some
distance to the spot from whence
the cries came, they saw an express
going past without stopping to find
out the cause of the disturbance.
They -met a Chinaman, who was
shivering and shaking with fear, but
who could not talk English much,
He, however, managed to tell them
that ho had been set upon by six
young natives ho was positive ' in
this description of- his assailants
who emptied his wallet of 'its con
tents of three dollars. When he
cried, "Haul in," thoy threw him
down and stuffed his mouth with
dirt. Although tho express did not
stop, its nppearanco caused tho rob
bers to run away ; yet if tho occu
pants of the carriage, had heeded
tho alarm, one or more of tho ras
cals might have boeti caught. Mr.
Maertens says there is great need of
police supervision in that quarter.
It is only two or three weeks since
his Chinese servant's quarters were
broken into and about three dollars
stolen, by a young kanaka who was
seen jumping over the fence and
Tho Japanese Commissioner and
tho Cpnsul arrived at Kauai Wednes
day, nnd went immediately to Koloa,
where there was dissatisfaction
among the Japanese labor. After a
patient hearing of both sides of the
case tho Commissioner told his coun
trymen that their quarrel was not
just, and they would better go back
to work. They agreed to do bo, and
did actually go to work. But after
a very fow hours they again refused
to work. His Excellency then ad
vised the manager to prosecute them
in court. Ho did so, and they -were
sent to prison until they will couscnt
to work. At tho prison thoy again
i of used to work. What tho outcome
of it all will be, remains to bo seen.
There are thirty of the strikers, and
about an equal number of their
countrymen are working contentedly
onlthe same plantation.
The people most, interested want
it known that the road supervisor
has removed the Wailua scow from
where the Superintendent of Public
Works put it, and that it is now
down in tho breakers. And the ap
proaches havo not been improved
any since Superintendent Smith left,
so that.it is practically worthless so
far ns heavy vehicles are concerned.
Tho cablo is still up tho stream, but
no road has been made there, and
there are no signs of any intention
to make one.
