riding down Fort street this morn
ing ut n lively gait. When turning
a comer at the fool of the street
they struck a lumber pile, and one
of the girls was tin own out but not
hurt. She was evidently put out of
temper, though, for when she was
again seated in the vehicle she made
the hoiso suffer.
Mu. 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 tis that the Department give the
chief some kind of a pyrotechnical
reception on arrival home. The boys
can doubtless bo depended upon,
between now and then, to arrange
for " painting the town red."
"Unices," said a Kaahumanu
street lawyer to his young clerk,

It has become a common practice
of people of Honolulu and its
suburbs to place barrels and boxes

mal, but to stand closely by and
watch her. On stepping ashore
again, Mr. Hart found his team
gone. The Chinaman was standing
dazedly looking uptown, and at
length found words to explain the
situation: " She lun up stlcct like
" curried mutton. In tho mean
time the marc careered through the
town, exciting apprehensions that a
Government billet was vacant while
half the Cabinet was away. The
team drew up at the owner's house,

Deputy-Siiemff Smith, of Kan,
Hawaii, made a raid on a Chinese
den last Tuesday night and captured
three tins of opium. He was
furiously pelted with stones while
trying to effect an entrance to the
building. The Chinamen were
stationed above with a large supply
of rocks. Mr. Smith received a
severe blow on his arm, but other
wise he was not hurt. After the
capture of the three tins of opium
he went about asking every China
man in Kan if lie owned the drug.
A UEAUTiruL object adorns the
counter of the Elite Ice Cream Par
lors. It is called the Crescent
Draught Stand. From two pillars
ending in spires and balls springs a
graceful arch, and half way up
there is a circular reservoir fitted
with four faucets for as many kinds
of liquid. Above the arch there is
a glass cocrcdfounlain, containing
a slatuc of Heue. This in turn is
capped with a highly ornate dome
and cupola. The stand is of silver,
delicately chased with Arctic scen
ery. Altogether it is a delightful
work of art.

T. Lucas were riding in Mr. Hart's
carriage on Merchant street, and
when opposite Wiseman's the right
hind wheel of the buggy dished.
Neither of the occupants were
thrown out, and Mr. W. Moore
caught the horse by the bridle to
prevent any further mishap. Mr.
Hart, with the dignity of a knight,
led the noble animal to Lucas's
mill, while the wrecked vehicle was
taken to the wheelwright's for re
pairs. The Road Supervisor will
have his revenge on the rut that
probably caused the accident, by
covering it with a cartload of earth.

par value. Now that the consolida
tion of the two companies is effected,
it would not be surprising if sales
were made at a premium. It is
authoritatively stated to us that the
price of ice will not be raised.
Rev. Mr. Cruzan and lady re
turned to town this morning by the
Lchua from their visit to the Maui
mountains. Mrs. Cruzan has not
yet recovered from the injuries sus
tained by being thrown from horse
back two weeks ago. The journey
home will probably have retarded
her improvement, as it involved ten
miles of travel by land besides the
steamer trip. Her many friends have
reason to hope, however, that rest
and quiet at home will effect a com
plete restoration of her health. Mr.
Cruzan himself looks very well for
his experience of " roughing it,"
apparently having laid up large re
serves of strength and vigor for his
arduous duties of pastor and editor.

the independence of the Hawaiian
Kingdom; subversive of all proper
and needful discipline on plantations,
and tending to aggravate rather than
diminish the present evils attendant
on all labor enterprises now existing
on these isles.
