WEDNESDAY, FEB. 3, 188G.
i I am weary objo weary
Of tho. tortures never ceasing
Borne by those bereft of 6lght;
And I wonder often wonder
If tlio tlrno will ever bo
When Ho who doomed tno to be blind
"Will bid me once more see.
I I am weary ob, so weary
Of my nil but useless life,
' Of tbl? groping In tlio darkness
' For escape from mental strife,
i , And 1 wonder often wonder
Jf for mo tlio die Is cast,
f And earth nnd sky, tlio moon mid star
I Merc visions of tho past.
I am weary oh, &o weary
Of this bearing up with fate.
1 Though much I nave to comfoi t me,
1 ' And many Ills abate t
Friends I lime who feel for me,
( And guide my steps might,
' But nh! they cannot ease tlio pang
That take the place of sight.
I am weary oil, so weary
Of this hoping for the best
Of these silent prayers for something
That will lay my brain to rest;
Ami I womlcr olten wonder
When tho morrow comes again.
Will It bring mo moro of sorrow,
Or bring surcease of pain.
I am weary, oh, bo weary
Of tho Muster's chastening rod,
And 1 gladly hear tho whisper
"There Is peace beneath tlio sod."
Perhaps 1 prove too selllsh
In this giving breath to mind,
Whilst thousands better far than I
Arc homeless, cold and bliud.
I am weary oh, so weary
Of this retrospect of life
With its cloud of base Ingratitude
From one I made my wife;
And I wonder often wonder
Why the Tower hath willed It so
That 1, who never sought to harm,
Should feel an ingratc's blow.
I inn weary oh, to weary
Of this htrlvlng to bo gay,
This brooding o'er tho bitter wrougs,
That turned my hair to gray
And 1 wonder often wonder
(For 1 have buffered so!)
If F.arth may not be all the Hell,
That I shall over know.
I am weary oh, so weary
Of these memories of tlio past,
These ghosts of burled pleasures.
That rise and fade so fast.
And I wonder often wonder
What (he future has In store.
And I try to force its portals
And Its mysteries explore.
But I weary quickly weary
Au& I sink back in my chair,
For beyond tho lighted Present
There is darkness everywhere.
Then I wonder, and 1 ponder
Will tho future ever lie
Shall I ever feel its presence
Or know Its mystery?
1 am weary oh, so weary
Of the tickings of the clock,
And the death-knells of the dying hours
-My wearied senses mock.
And I wonder often wonder
When Old Time's uplifted scythe
Will free me from this sea of gloom,
In which 1 moan and writhe.
Honolulu, Jan. ft.
THE RECIPROCITY TREATY.
Tho Alta California of January
lCth contains the following article
upon the Reciprocity Treaty and
Hawaiian Trada which will be read
witli interest by both our planters
and merchants. It says :
The Ilawaiians arc a rich prize.
They arc the meat and milk of the
coc'oanut, while the Saraoans and the
Carolines arc the husk and shell.
Our 'Consul at Apia has protested,
as'w'as his duty, against tho absorp
tion of Samoa, but except in a diplo
matic sense and to save a point in
international law, his protest was as
powerless as if mado against the
tides. ' If a fleet of German iron
clads should anchor off Honolulu,
Minister Merrill will just as powcr
lessly protest against German ab
sorption of that Kingdom. The
Samoana are C,000 miles away. The
Hawaiian Islands are only a week's
sailt They are the only shelter this
coaslLha's at sea. Put them under
European domination and wo are
without a coaling station, an anchor
age or n foothold for commerce be
tween, California and Africa. Wo
owe'our influence upon those islands
now, not" to our army, nor navy,
ndr diplomacy, nor politics, but to
our commercial enterprise which
urged the Ecciprocity Treaty which
is its shelter. With a shortness of
sight which is phenomenal, the-
abrogtjop'of that treaty has been
ufgedfwhcni the moment it is ac
complished wc may bo the unwilling
spectators" of the scene just enacted
in Samoa, but upon a scale that
pinches our commerce and our pride.
Just'wha'tf tills treaty has dono for
our commerce may be judged by
these-comparisons : Our trade with
can States. nine millions. We sent
fleets nnd took" costly political meas
ures to opei Japan, thirty years ago,
nndryetiDul' trade with that Empire
of over, thirty millions of people ex-cfe'cds'Uintf'of-

elevdn riiiillohs ; with Japan,
millions' ! with the Central
Tlio Reciprocity Treaty wan made'
to aecuro trade, utul vpur own- mer
chants have made-profit ouVof-tuat
trade, and by n singular inversion
and perversion, this fact is offered
to tho Government ns argument for
Per contra) wc suppose, if our
merchants had lost in thai com
merce, if for their risk and their
enterprise they had reaped insolv
ency, the treaty would have been
called by theso critics a success 1
To sttstain this trade with those
islands and uphold the conditions
by which only it can exist, is national
interest., aim is oi primary mm m
tenso importance to this city and
coast. Let us be warned bySamoa,
and increase the vigilanco which has
so fair yielded great returns. "We
call the attention of the East to the
fact that those islands wcic com
mercially dormant until American
enterprise roused it. True, that
cntcrprisu centered In this city, but
out of it has grown manufactures,
fleets of iron steamers and sail ves
sels that carry our flag and dignify
the American name. The Eastern
press may be inclined to put a vulgar
estimate upon its importance, but it
is of as great value and its results
arc relatively important as those
born of the vim of Chicago and the
other busy centers of the East.

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
rectors of tlio Equitable Life As
suranco Society of the United States ,
appointed to formulate the views of (Jr.
Board on tho advantages ofl'ered by I l j
Society to tho public, report:
1st The Society Issues all the apprj--cd
foims of assurnnce, including Ordi
nary Life, Endowment nnd Tontine po.
Holes. It is immaterial to tlio Directors
which form of policy is taken by in.
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi.
dends and a surrender value; are Indis
putable after three years nnd payablo
immediately after proof of death.
3d Tlio premiums on a Tontine po
licy are the same as on the Ordinary
Lite, but, while the latter is.only pay.
ablo in thu event of death, tho holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
tho whole of tho reserve and tho accu
mulatcd profits in cash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years are past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on nn ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that tho return
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho averatro cost of tho
assurance will bo only about tho interest
on tho premiums.
Cth Tontino policies, liko others, aro
paid in full in tho ovent of death at any
time during tho term of tho policy, and
aro incontestable after threo years, and
payablo immediately after duo proof of
Cth Experience shows that tho mor
tallty is lower among Tontino policy,
holders, as the better lives sock this
kind of assurances, which is a consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontine policies will bo made
non-forfeitablo under tho laws of the
State, if so desired at tho time the a
surnnco is effected.
8th Tho Tontine system is fair and
just; its accounts are accurately kept,
scparato from all other' business; the
funds judiciously Invested and improv
ed, nnd tlio accumulated profits faith,
fully guarded and properly apportioned.
0th The Society has since its organ!
zation transacted a larger amount of
now business thnn any other company,
while its now business for tlio first half
of the present year is $1,7C0,000 larger
than that of tho first half of 1884. It
has Assets of $00,000,000; over $14,000,
000 of Surplus, and its ratio of Surplus
to Liability is greater than that of any
