artesian well at Honouliuli with hand

A FEAT IN LOGIC.
Editok Bulletin: I notice in
tho last issue of the Anglican
Church Chronicle an article by
Rev. C. E. Groscr on the "Church
of England, an authorized establish
ment of the State," in which occurs
the following: "I will give one
logical proof that the Church of
England to-day is tho Church of
England of the 9th century, which,
if admitted, proves her ipso facto
the Church of tho Apostolic age."
This looks to me like very weak
logic, containing a very largo ad
mixture of the illogical. On the
same principlo of reasoning, to ad
mit that I am ilftyyoars of age must
be taken as :v proof that I am ono
hundred. I might readily admit
that the Church of England of to
day existed long before the 9th
century without conceding for one
moment that she is "the Church of
the Apostolic age." Can't See.
THE FEAST OF EPIPHANY.
The Feast of the Epiphany of our
Lord was observed on its very day,
January 6th, with a grand solemnity,
at tho Roman Catholic Cathedral;
several persons were baptized, and
tho sacrament of confirmation ad
ministered to about 40, both adults
and children. This feast is kept by
the Church in order to commemorate
tho manifestation of Christ's glory
(Epiphany meaning manifestation,
from the Greek word Epiphaneia)
(1) when tho Magi adored Him; (2)
in His baptism, whon the voice from
heaven proclaimed Him tho Son of
God ; (8) In the miracle of changing
water into wine, when Christ began
his miracles and "manifested" his
glory. And this same feast ever re
minds us, too, that all the nations of
the whole world were then called to
enter tho Kingdom of God, tho three
Mogi representing the three great
races of men, descending from tho
three sons of Noah. F. C.
THE REFORM SCHOOL.
Paper read by Hev. C. E. Groscr,
at tho rodent meeting of the Teach
ers' Convention in this city.
(Mr. Groscr prefaced the reading
of his paper by saying that ho thought
it his duty to remark that Mr. Hill
and himself had worked for nearly
nine months in perfect harmony,
without the slightest conflicting pur
pose. Nothing in this paper, there
fore, should be taken as personal.
Doubtless Mr.Hill thought there were
many things he Mr. Groser had not
done which he ought to have done
and ho was certain there wero many
things Mr.Hill might havo dono which
he had not done. Ho Mr. Groscr
had suggested little and urged noth
ing, for what ho thought wero wise
reasons. It was said that a man
should not bo "neither hot nor cold."
But Mr. Hill had becD placed in a try
ing position, and ho Mr. G. In an
uncertain one, and he believed it his
duty simply to go on quiotly, hoping
for improvement eventually in the In
stitution, whether he remained in it
or migrated to Australia or New York
I regret that I have not longer
acquaintance with this subject, and
that it was not entrusted to Mr.
Hill, whose familiarity with the work
extends tlirugh a decade of years.
It is not probable, that you would
care to hear the history of the insti
tution, there being so much that is
more important to consider, and a
limited time for its consideration.
The subject assigned to me, namely,
the Reform School, is somewhat
curtailed in its titlo, and I have
therefore presumed upon presenting
it in its full form. The institution
is, however, generally known as tho
Reformatory School ; but in fact it
has a more imposing title than that,
namely, "The Industrial and Re
formatory School," suggesting for
itself something moro than the idea
of a Prison House for boys, which
the word Reformatory seems to infer
to some minds.
Thero are many, to my knowledge,
who think, in view perhaps of the
numerous depredations committed
by its escapees, that its windows
should bo more securely barred, and
its inmates regarded and treated as
prisoners. This wouldjsimply nega
tive the idea of reform, contemplated
in the establishment of this school.
Every effect has its cause. The
cause of the thing complained of in
this case, is due to the fact that the
staff in charge has been insufficient,
and tho work interminable. It
could hardly be supposed that over
fifty boys of bad character could
be well managed by two persons,
one of them a native ; and this has
been tho case for ten years, at all
events, with the exception of my
short residence in connection with
the institution. Certainly the work
has not been carried on, morally,
industrially or educationally as it
should have been carried on ; but
the fault cannot bo said to lay at tho
door of those who havo been in
charge, and tho remedy can only bo
found in tho annointment of an in
creased staff of suitable persons,
which is now contemplated and being
It is a matter of amazement to
me, and to many, how tho institution
has been carried on so well as it has
been, considering the number of the
boys, the character of the work and
the insufficient means at hand.
Steadily however, year by year,
improvements havo manifested them
selves ; the numbers havo increased,
new buildings have taken tho place
of the old oues, good strong fencing
has been done, and paying farm
lands have been acquired where the
boys may bo seen every afternoon
knee deep in the taro patch, or
spreading and bundling tho fragrant
It will bo well to sav now, before
going into the subject in a way that
will lead up to its discussion, that
the two points thus far mentioned,
that is, 1st, tho truo character of the
institution and 2nd, tho inadequacy
of the staff hitherto, are points
about which tho Board of Education
has never been unconcerned, and
has over I believe had correct ideas.
Tho trouble lies in a nutshell. This
Kingdom i3 small, and its rovenue
far from enormous. What tho Board
has done, aud what it might havo
liked to do, and what it may do, are
the triangle of tho matter. In all
fairness it must be admitted, that
considering the homo und streets
from whence tho most of these boys
come, knowing what wo all know,
this school affords a good homo
even as couductcd In its present
limited way for boys of vicious and
We will propose for your consider
ation, as Topic 1st, the question of
At present, boys are committed
on the judges or magistrates' order
after conviction of crime, and must
be, not over 1G years of age : all
right so far ; although they may bo
committed at that age, for the rest
of their minority, which is all
wrong. It is an opinion which is
shared with everyone who is con-
nected with tho institution, and I
Venturo to express the hopo that nil
who are interested in tho matter of
education in theso Islands, will use
their influence that this hurtful law
8hn.ll bo repenkd at tho coming Le
gislature, so tint boys may bo tils
charged when they reach -their 17th
year of age. I baso my opinion
upon these grounds. 1st, consider
the character of theso hoys. There
arc over fifty of them. Thoy are
nearly all of them befouled with
imaginations of tho irapurcst and
most sensual description. God bo
thanked If their stealing and their
profanity and their truaucy were
their worst faults.
Such is far from being the case.
If committed at 1C, for 4 years,
they are almost Invariably depraved ;
and when they reach 17, after sev
eral years of reformatory restraint,
they find themselves men, with men's
passions, and nativo instincts ; they
chafe, arc ungovernable, break loose
and do mischief.

IMPORTANT TO INVESTORS !
Valuable Real Estate
For Sale Ijy Private Contract or al Pole Aactton.
The undersigned havo received instructions from Messrs. G. W. Mac.
farlauo & Co. to offer for talc at auction, nt our salesrooms, on
MONDAY, JANUARY 25th, .
At 13 O'clock, Noon,
Unless previously disposed of by private Sale,
The whole of that valuable city property known ns the BOOTH ESTATE,
excepting only the corner lot, owned by Mr. JnmeH Olds, containing In all
20,1)00 tquaro feet, together with houses, stores and buildings thereto be
longing. This is the most compact and dcsiiahlo piece of property ever offered
for sale in Honolulu. Its main frontages lira 75 feet 5 inches to Nuuanu
street, and 9;i feet 0 Indies to Hotel street. The rear front of the property
extends from Nuuanu street, back of Messrs. Castle & Cooke's fine brick
warehouse and store, 172 feet 11 inches to ItoscLnnc, the side frontage
along tho lino of tho Robinson lot to Hotel street being 112 feet 3 inches.
Tho value of tills and tho adjoining property might bo greatly en.
lmuccd by carrying Roso Lano straight through to Hotel street. Access is
had to Hotel and Nuuanu streets from the rear aud center of the estate by
lanes long in use on the property itself.
Situated m the heart of the retail business quarter of tho city, and
having a largo area of avaliablo building fpacc unoccupied, this property
holds out unusual inducements to capitalists as a permanent investment.
The present annual investment is $4,000, or 10 per cent, on f 45,000; but as
the leases expire shortly, tho rental might be increased to $0,000 a year
without expenditure for repairs or additions to buildings. If the estate
were sold as a whole, however, by judicious and Inexpensive improve
ments which n practical eye would suggest, even this largo prospective In.
como might bo very considerably added to.
Tho Nuuanu street frontage Is occupied by a row of two-story build
ings, tho upper story being used as dwellings, and the first Hoot as stores,
which are always in occupation. Restaurants and retail stores similarly
occupy tho frontage on Hotel street.
Tho old International Hotel Is in the center of tho property, and goes
with the lot. It is used as a lodging house aud pays handsomely.
Another advantage of this lino properly as an Investment Is Its excel
lent sanitary conditions. It is on tho highest part of the city, maual of
Berotania street, and is thcrcforo easily drained.
The properly, if not disposed of before date of sole, will bo first put up
as a whole in one lot. Falling a satisfactory purchaser, wo shall then put
it up in lots, for which purpose It has been subdivided Into sixteen lots.
We shall oiler these lots .it tho following upset prices, viz:
Lot No. 1 $ 1,800
Lot No. 2 1,800
Lot No. a 1,C00
