something wrong somewhere, as the
fruit was not too much matured
when shipped, and either it was
roughly handled or the consignees
over-rated the damage.

A STREET INCIDENT.
A man named Tenorio, who drives
a hack for Hon. John E. Bush,
called at this olllce to-day. and re
lated an episode that reflects rather
unfavorably upon some of the men
at the Hawaiian Hotel Stables. He
was driving up Hotel street from
Fort, with Mr. Thomas Wall in his
carriage. A driver for the above
stables was watering his horse on
the Hotel side of tho street, nnd
just as the other rig came along ho
threw the water right under Tenorio' s
horse's nose. The horse reared up
and would have bolted, had not tho
driver with promptness used his
greatest exertion to hold him. As
a buggy was advancing closely in
tho opposite direction, tho conse
quences might have been disastrous
had the frightened horse got away.
Tenorio says the incident was
greeted with loud laughter by the
drivers at the Stables.
The installation and hop of Mystic
Lodge, No. 2, K. of P., at Harmony

themselves of tho opportunity, for
a good while back withheld, of
enjoying a waltz. Refreshments
were served during the evening, and
at midnight, when the gathering
broke up, everyone was well pleased
with the evening's amusement.
The popularity of the lodgo is doubt

THE REFORM SCHOOL.
Paper read by Rev. C. E. Groser,
at tho recent meeting of tho Teach
ers' Convention in this city.
The only remedy at present is tho
public jail and tho reef. It has
been tried. The trial is a failure.
They return at the expiration of one
year, their last state being worse
than the Ilrst. They chafe because
they know that boys ordinarily are
not compelled to attend school after
10 ; they arc ungovernable because
they arc almost men, and have bad
instincts, and little reason. The
least, at all events, that ought to be
done in the matter is this, that when
thus placed in the public jail, they
should, at tho expiration of their
incarceration, be discharged from
the jail, and not returned to this
school, if past the age of 10. I will
say secondly that the influence of n
depraved boy of 17 years of age,
or more, upon tho smaller boys, is
something terrible. Beliove mo,
tilts is only too true.
We will see by and by, how much
of this could bo remedied by proper
classification, and suitable equip
ment, and moral and religious teach
ing. Within one week, a small
bright boy will be entered along with
a returned jail bird, and tho results
arc simply pitiful. We have exper
ienced the ungovcrnablciicss of the
one and I havo watched the gradual
but certain deterioration of tho
The native boy at 18 is more of
a man in strength and pass in than
a boy of our own race at the same
age. Nothing but iron bars and a
keeper will safely confine him, and
no amount of moral suasion, will
inllucncc him while ho feels wronged,
and long, for freedom. And thirdly
it is unjust on the face of it, to
commit a boy, otherwise than is
sulllcicnt, to serve as a punishment
for his crime. The whole working
of the institution should make it very
clear, that detention in the Reforma
tory should not bo punitive, but
remedial. Tho principal should bo
authorized to shorten the term of
detention, subject to tho approval
and order of the Board, by appren
ticing larger boys to trades, or by
giving them their dischargo as a.
reward for good conduct.
The jail, and not the Reformatory
school, is the place for vicious boys,
who arc men in feeling and size, if
not in age. Let us consider as our
2nd topic tho industrial fcaturo of
the institution. The boys at the
present time arc certainly indus
trious enough. But the question is
mooted, as to whether these boys
ought not 101)0 engaged mother pur
suits, as well. The school is indus
trial, in the sense that tho boys do
all their own work, and aro daily
employed in the cultivation of taro
and the banana.
It is thought that this is not sufll
eicntly industrial, and that work
shops, and a teacher in mechanics
should be provided, and every pro
vision made for the furtherance of
the true industrial idea. Wo havo
reason to believe that His Excellency
the President of the Board of Edu
cation contemplates carrying somo
such purpose into effect when the
convenient time arrives.
To consider tho question on its
merits, it is well to observe, that the
competition of the Chinese in tho
manufacture of useful articles, and
tho waste that would ensuo in tho
hands ot such boys as these, has
formed the opinion in the minds of
some that to employ a teacher in
this branch of education, and appro
priate money for such an object,
would be a waste of time and funds.
If this were so it is certainly a fact,
that Honolulu is different from any
other place in the world, and these
native boys aro totally unlike other
The other view of the question is
the consideration of tho purpose of
tho institution. If for tho reclama
tion of tho boys from idleness and
vice, then there can bo no waste in
educating them, even at expense and
labor, in such spheres of duty as
will give them employment on their
release from their present restraint.
It may be said, however, that this
feature of tho industrial idea could
bo more effectively carried out by
placing tho boys of promise in tho
employ of shops in town for day
labor, being returned at night. A
plan that would succeed admirably,
providing that such employment.
could be found for boys of this
class, and providing a guarantee for
the return pf tho boys could bo
given. Insubordination, and truancy,
and wholesale robbery, would bo
likely to mark uiich a scheme If at
tempted. A bright Idea undoubtedly,
if it could be prranged, would be to
apprentice the larger and better boys
to parties who would tako them at
their own risk, and engage to employ
them in some useful trade, for in
stance, uu the murine railway, in
carpenter shops, at painting, tin
sinlthlng and the like.
It cannot be contradicted that the
knowledge of some useful occupa
tion, the experience of the sweat of
loll, arc essential parts of Christian
education. These boys should cer
tainly know, besides reading, writing
and arithmetic, that to occupy n
place in the world they must not
only be acquainted with tho weari
ness of, but they must believe in
tho necessity of manual labor. And
as for the authorities they should
never lose sight of the facts, that
tho material Is criminal, the object
reformation, and that the agencies
should be something besides segre
gation, mental education and con
In these respects satisfactory work
is being done at present, work that
could not be improved upon, I think
except by an increased staff. But
a Reformatory School should not bo
a mere institution, any more than a
juvenile prison. It should be dis
tinctively a ''Home," with personal
interest, and religious inllucncc
among its list of agencies, and oc
cupying a prominent place.
This brings us to Topic No. 3 :
Tho Reformatory fcaturo of this
institution. To manage it after the
manner of a prison, would save the
principal ceaseless anxiety and bring
tho boys under safer keeping ; but it
would change the whole purpose
for which its founders so worthily
inaugurated it, as a house for boys in
their minority wherein they might
receive education of body, soul and
spirit. At the present time abundant
provision is made for schooling,
and for bodily employment. But
for the soul, for the religious cul
ture of these poor boys, nothing is
done except the nightly repetition of
tho Lord's Prayer, a weekly visit for
half an hour from tho Roman priest,
and an occasional visit to tho Kau
makapili church. Is it possible that
a boy can be taken from the streets
of sin and reformed by means of a
school book and a spade? In my
opinion it would prollt aiiout as
much, as to say to a naked brother
or sister, destitute of food, "Depart
in peace, be ye.wurmed and filled ;
notwithstanding yc give them not
those things which arc needful to
the body." (James n. 10).

Valuable Real Estate
Business Center of Honolulu !
For Sale liy Private Contract or at Pnllic Auction.
The undersigned have received htsttuclions from Messrs. G. W.Mac,
fui lane ti Co. to oiler for sale at auction, at our salesrooms, on
MONDAY, JANUARY 25th,
At VI O'clock, Noon,
Unless previously disposed of by private Sale,
The whole of that valuable citv piopcrly known as the BOOTH ESTATE,
excepting onlv the corner lot, owned by Mr. .Tunics Oldn. containing In all
20,0110 square 'feet, together with houses, stores and buildings thereto be.
This Is the most compact and desirable piece of property ever offered
for talc In Honolulu. Its main frontages arc 75 feet 0 Inches to Nuuanti
street, and 03 feet 0 inches to Hotel street. The rear front of the property
extends from Xuiiiuiu street, back of Messrs. Castle & Cooke's line brick
warehouse and stoic, 172 feet 11 inches lo l?oic T.anc. the side frontage
along tho line of the Iloblnson lot to Hotel slrcct being 112 feet a inches.
The value of this and the adjoining property might bo greatly en.
hanccd by carrying Hose Lane tralght through to Hotel street. Access Is
linil to Hotel and Nuunnu streets from the rear and center of the estate by
lanes long in use ou the properly Itself.
Situated in the heart of the retail liusincs quarter of tho city, and
having a large area of available building space unoccupied, this property
holds out unusual inducements to capitalists as a permanent investment.
The present annual Investment is $1,000, or 10 per cent, on if 10,000; but as
the leases expire shortly, the rental might be increased to $0,000 a year
without expenditure for rcpahs or additions lo buildings. If tic estate
were sold as a whole, however, by judicious and inexpensive improve
ments which a practical eye would suggest, even this largo prospective in.
come might be very considerably added to.
The Nuiiaim street frontage is occupied by n row of two-story build,
ing', the upper story being used as dwellings, and the first Hoot as stores,
which uio always in occupation. Restaurants and retail stores similarly
occupy the frontage on Hotel street.
The old International Hotel 13 in the center of tho property, and goes
wl'h the lot. It is used as a lodging house and pays handsomely.
Another advantage of this line property ns an investment Is its excel
lent sanitary conditions. It is (in the highest part of the city, niaKal of
Hciutaula street, and is therefore easily drained.
Tho properly, if not disposed of before date of sale, will bo first put up
ns a whole In miu lot. Falling a satisfactory purchaser, we shall then put
it up In lot", for which purpose It has been subdivided into sixteen lots.
We shall oiler thcie lots at the following upset prices, viz:
