Last evening the Queen's Own
paraded for drill under command of
Captain O'Connor. Previous to
drill the Captain called the olllcers
to the front of the parade and
handed to each ofliccr of the corps
the King's commission. The com

olllcers on the high honor and mark
of royal favor just conferred on
them. He felt satisfied they would
prove themselves wortlry, eflieient,
loj'al and bravo olllcers, never for
getting the duty they owed to their
King, Government, country, com
manding ofliccr, and subordinates
placed under their charge. The
olllcers are A Company 1st Lieu

A PRETTY SHOW.
Mr. F. L. Clarke has placed a
stock of Hawaiian ferns, lichens and
mosses in a show ease in King
Bros.' art store. A more beautiful
display of the natural adornments
of our mountains and gorges could
not be imagined. The plants nre
artistically mounted on photograph
cards and fancily-designed boards.
All of them arc pretty, some of them
exquisitely so, their arrangement
exhibiting rare taste and skill. Mr.
Clarke has evidently hit upon a
good tiling in this enterprise, and
knows how to carry it out. Prettier
or neater souvenirs of this group
could not bo obtained by visitors,
nor more acceptable Hawaiian curios
be sent by residents to friends
abroad. Particularly would they
be deemed treasures by all lovers of
nature. One card in the collection

SUPREME COURT-OCTOBER TERM.
Tiiuusday, Oct. 8th.
In the case of Queen Emma's
contested will, Mr. J. M. Pocpoc,
for the contestant, Prince Albert
Kunuiakea, addressed the jury for
three hours. Mr. F. M. Hatch
spoke for the proponent, Mr. A. J.
Cartwright, an hour and twenty
minutes. The jury retired at ten
minutes past four, and in half an
hour returned with a verdict for the
"defendant," two dissenting. The
were informed by the Court that
"proponent" was the word they
shouldhavcused if they meant the ex
ecutor of the will. The contestant's
counsel entered exceptions against
the verdict on the grounds of the
Friday, Oct. 'Jth.
Before Chief-Justice Judd. A
Hawaiian jury tries the assumpsit
case of Kanui vs. Makole. Kinney
& Peterson for plaintiff, Poepoe for
defendant. At ten minutes to two
Mr. Poepoe concluded his closing
address to the jury, and Mr. Kinney
began his speech for the plaintiff,
speaking in Hawaiian.
His Honor Justice Preston was
this morning occupied in hearing
argument of counsel on a motion
filed by the defendants in the case
of S. L. Austin and others against
C. Brewer & Co. and others. Ash
ford & Ashford for the plaintiffs, F.
M. Hatch for the defendants. The
motion seeks to dissolve the injunc
tion whereby defendants arc res
trained from interfering with the
possession of plaintiffs in the plan
tation or property of the Onomea
Sugar Company ; (2) to absolutely
refrain from selling or disposing of
any of the capital stock of said com
pany, or any of the mortgage bonds
or other bonds of said company in
the custody of C. Brewer & Co. , arid
(3) to refrain from doing any act of
authority as olllcers of the corpora
tion of said Onomea Sugar Com
pany, until further order of the
Court. Mr. Hatch filed affidavits
slipping that defendants Jones and
Carter were regularly elected as
olllcers of the Onomea Sugar Com
pany, and argued that they were
mortgagees in possession, that the
plaintiffs were merely servants of
the Onomea Sugar Corporation, and
not as absolute owners of the plan
tation. On the other hand, Mr.
Ashford contended that the plain
tiffs, who were mortgagors, prima
facie, arc the absolute owners of the
premises until foreclosure or sale.
The Court, on review of the matter,
ordered that that portion of the in
junction restraining defendants from
doing any acts as olllcers of said
Onomea Sugar Company, be struck
off, the other portions of it to stand.

Dennis Kearney in a speech at
Irish-American Hall, San Francisco,
on the 20th nit., upheld the pro
ceedings of the miners in AVyoming,
and presented resolutions, which
were unanimously adopted, approv
ing the action of the AVyoming
miners in attempting' to diive out
the Chinese ; condemning the army
for protecting the coolies at woik in
the mines; thieatcning destiuction
of the Chinese if their immigration
is not stopped; condemning the
action of the Chinese Consul in
offering large rewards for the arrest
of American citizens in AVyoming,
and, finally, pledging their "lives
and fortunes" to drive the Mongo
lians from our shoies, "and to bring
about prosperity and peace." Kear
ney said that he was not opposed to
any one who sought to suppress the
curse of Chinese immigration, but
declared that the issue should be
kept out of politics, arguing that
after it was settled it would be time
enough to confer office, i at all,
upon those who had labored in the
cause. He declared that 11,000,
000 is yearly bent from California
to China ; that Chinese immigration
is increasing at an alarming rate,
and that there is no demand for
white servant girls, as their places
are filled entirely by Chinamen.

government should issue fiat paper
money to the amount of S5(! per
head of population, and expend it
for public works; that no alien
should be permitted to own land or
control railroads or telegraph lines
in the United States ; that a gradu
ated, increasing tax should ho laid
on incomes, beginning with incomes
of 82,000 and running up to 850,
000, and that all incomes in excess
of the latter figure should be confis
cated ; that convicts should bo paid
reasonable wages, and that tho Pre

A report received at the State
Department from the American
Consul at Genoa, Italy, contains
the elements of a first-class romance.
The Consul writes that on August
28th he visited, in company with a
friend, the asylum for the insane,
which stands on the outskirts of the
city. Before leaving the building
he was informed that one of the pa
tients, an American lady, desired to
speak to him. Some objection was
made by the officers in charge.
The patient, they said, wai very
violent, and it would be better to
disregard her wishes if it were not
desirable to bring about a scene,
but the Consul persisted, and in the
interview which followed satisfied
himself that his fair country-woman
was no more iiiMinc than himself.
He demanded her release, which
was not effected without some di fa
culty. The Consul deseriheslu-r as
being very pretty and about 25
years of age. l lie lady's story is
that she married her husband, who
proved to be a titled adventurer, m
one of the large Eastern cities about
two years ago. Her father settled
upon her an annuity of $f,()00 a
year. Shortly after their arrival in
Genoa her husband decoyed her to
an insane asylum, where she was
placed under restraint, though in
other respects kindly treated. Her
husband had averted suspicion by
informing his wife's parents that
she was too ill to write. The lady
is now en mule to America with
funds furnished by the Consul.
Her husband lied from Genoa upon
the announcement of her release
and has not been heard from since.
Piorola, formerly Dictator of
Peru, who has just been banished
for the fourth time from that coun
try, reached New York on tho 21th,

that he will spend part of tho winter
thcie, and if he does he will be a
conspicuous figure in society, as ho
is a man of raro social accomplish
ments, as well as a brilliant political
leader. He was educated in Paris
and inherited scientific proclivities
from his father, who was formerly a
piofcssor in tho University of Mad
rid, and for inaiiv veals a Director
of the University 'of Peru. Piorola
