HAWAIIANS' KEENNESS FOll
The native Hawaiian, like the
ancient Greek, delights in hearing
anil relating something new. Tins
is one of his prominent characteris
tics. And it is astonishing to per
sons of larger intellect how much
the native finds in cvery-day common-place
events to interest him.
Every occurrence, from the stub
bing of a toe to the breaking of a
neck, engages his interested atten
tion. Often the most trivial and frivo
lous matters will afford him the
greatest pleasure or engross his
most earnest thoughts. lie is
anxious to hear and learn all the
little things that occur. Petty
scandal, family differences, and
moral obliquities arc all food suited
to his taste. "What he does not
know of events in a mile or two of
his residence within a few hours of
their occurence is small indeed.
This keenness for news docs not
limit itself within the circle of his
own race-. He is but little blower
in catching hold of the doings and
eaj'ings of the foreigner resident
in the country. Nothing appears
in the daily English papers pub
lished in Honolulu in the line of 11a
waiians tastes that they do not
readily take hold of and devour,
and are often ahead of the white
reader. If one reads anything that
interests him, he loses no time in
passing it on to his neighbors b
word of mouth. An item that ap
peared in this paper yesterday from
the JVeto York Independent relative
to the 2,000,000 loan, may bo
cited as an illustration. The Bul
letin had not been to press twenty
minutes when dozens of natives
along this part of Queen street, and
in Fort and Merchant streets, could
be heard discussing the matter.
Enquiry elicited the information
that a native who readb English had
(been the Bui.unx, and lighting on
this one item as of special interest to
Hawaiians, had transmitted it to
some friends, and they in turn had
passed it on to others.
On the invitation of Mr. John
Cassidy, Superintendent of the Bell
Telephone Company, a member of
the Bulletin staff accompanied that
gentlemen in a brake drive to Wai
anae on Tuesday, and back again
on Wednesday. Mr. Cassidy was
on a telephone inspecting and repair
ing expedition, tho first for eight
months past. Willi regard to the
telephones, they were all found to
be in fair working order, notwith
standing the long period interv.ening
since last visited. The weather was
delightful. The roads were dry ex
cept where they lay through the
bottoms of bridgeless streams, of
which there are not many to be
forded. The drivers of vehicles,
however, from Honolulu to Waianae,
will find it greatly to their comfort
not to read the items in the legisla
tive appropriation bill providing for
roads in Oahu, this being a case in
which "ignorance is bliss;" for the
jolts and jars can be very much
better endured by those who do not
know that the appropriations for
"mending tho ways" are ample if
judiciously used for the purpose.
One of tho best pieces of road on
the lino lies through "the willows,"
near the northwestern line of Hono
nliuli, where the young algarobas
are allowed to throw their prickly
limbs across the ioad at the precise
height required to lash the occupant
of u carriago light acioss the face.
Tho removal of this little nuisance
would cost the road supervisor of
the district, the sum of seventy-five
cents or thereabout ; and this, among
other things, proves the advantage
of not knowing but that roads arc
allowed to lake care of themselves.
Tho Waianae Plantation is under
tho management of Mr. Aug.
Ahrens. On a propossil to visit the
field, which was thankfully accepted,
the manager ordered out the Iron
Horse, which in less than five min
utes was harnessed to tho "pulaco
car," and a pnrty consisting of the
jnanager, tho doctor, Mr. latho and
the writer, were forthwith sweeping
around the base of Maili and up tho
Jualtmlei volley into the cane fields,
The growing cane looks finely, nflfl
is estimated to yield six tons to the
acre. On one side of the track is a
largo field, calculated to be ready
for cutting in March, and on the
other side, a largo area growing for
August. This plantation, consisting
of about 270 acres, is worked under
lease. Beyond the Maill is the
Waianae Plantation proper of about
200 acres. The company have now
"nearly six miles of Humes, nioiethan
two miles of which have been bum,
during the past year. An area of
eighty acres of cane land has been
prepared, and is all trenched and
ready for seeding, and only awaits a
good rainfall to fill tho trenches.
There has been no regular plantation
rain for foui teen or fifteen months
and thu bed of the stream has been
dry for a year. The cane is iuigated
from a leservoir in the mountains by
means of the Humes referred to
above. The cane is brought down
to tho mill, from the fields on a well
laid railroad track, which is said to
have been the first railroad line in the
Kingdom. The cars are drawn by
one or other of two locomotives, the
"Waianae" and the "Lualualei."
Tho sugar mill is undergoing a
pioccss of renovation, comprising
extensive additions and improve
ments. New furnances and boilers
are being put in, and an elevated
tramway erected from thu trash
house to facilitate the conveyance of
the trash to the furnaces, which will be
a great saving of labor. Part of this
tramway is suspended by iron rods to
the roof of the building, and is pro
bably the only railroad terminus in
the world hung to the roof of the
The plantation labor consists of
Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Ha
waiians, South Sea Islanders and
Germans six nationalities. .Dealing
with these varied specimens of
humanity requires no little tact and
generalship, for which manager
Ahrens seems to be the right man in
the right place. The housing of the
laborers is well arranged, the differ
ent nationalities being kept in separ
ate groups of buildings.
Till: HOSPITAL AND DOCTOIS.
Tho hospital is a neat airy build
ing, by the roadside. It was with
out inmates at least on Wednesday.
When patients require treatment
under the immediate supervision of
the doctor, they are placed in the
hospital, but ordinary ailments are
treated at their own quarters. The
practitioner in charge is Doctor
Wcddick, a recent arrival by the
Stirlingshire, and a gentleman of
pleasing address and genial manner.
Till: (JOVLKNMUNT SCHOOL.
The schoolhouse is a commodious
building of two departments, separ
ated or united, at pleasure, by
sliding doors. Another building on
the premises has recently been fixed
up and seated for a class room.
The teaching staff cousis of Mr. V.
E. Atwater, Mrs. Atwater and Miss
W. Baldwin, the latter of whom
takes charge of the class room. Mr.
and Mrs. Atwater and their assist-
ant are doing excellent work among
the juveniles of Waianae, not only
directly in opening to them the
avenues of knowledge, but also in
directly in the healthy moral influ
ence they exert in society. That
the educational interests of the com
munity are efficiently managed is
proven by the splendid exhibit of
regularity of attendance made bj'
thu school registers. The enroll
ment for the past quarter was 100,
and the average daily attendance
95. This, while it shows that the
education of the youth is carefully
looked after by Mr. Atwater, also
proves the value ,of a compulsory
bchool law, and is a piece of the Ha
waiian legislation of past years from
which botli America and England
may learn something to their advan
tage. There is, moreover, some
thin to be said in commendation of
the Board of Education. It has
always been referred to as a serious
difficulty in the way of providing
efficient teachers for many districts
that accommodation for housekeep
ing, or boarding and lodging were
wanting ; that men of culture and
ability could not be induced to stay
in them. That difficulty, as regards
Waianae, has bepn handsomely met
by the Board providing Mr. Atwater
with the means to build a neat cot
tage for himself. This provision
alone will probably secure for Wai
anae an ellicicntand cultured teacher
iu tho Government school for all
time to come. The pupils of tho
school are, for thu most part, native
Hawaiians. A few European faces,
young Portuguese, arc also notice
able. The specimens of reading,
spelling, arithmetic and writing pre
sented in a two hours' visit were very
creditable. In tho matter of pen
manship, especially, tho native
seems to excel all others, while some
of tho Portuguese boys showed a
very appreciative degree of enthusi
asm iu the calculative department.
Any visitor to Waianae who is inter
ested in the wolfaic of the nation
and the progress of her best institu
tions, will find it a pleasing incident
of his or her visit, to spend an hour
or two at tho Government school.
Besides being a sourco of entertain
ment to the visitor, it will bo highly
appreciated by the teachers as a
recognition of their efforts for the

A STRANGE STORY.
iS'i:v Youk, October 17th. The
"World's Providence, R. I., special
says: As strange and startling as
was the story of the disappearance
of Frederick A. Gower, tho tele
phone inventor and aeionaut, is the
information of his reappearance,
alive and well, in Bombay, India.
Gower, who was a newsboy and
subsequently editor of the Press, in
this city, left his newspaper desk
when the first public exhibition was
given here of thu telephone, lie
contracted with Prof. Bell to
deliver a lecture lluoughout tho
country, and altcrwurd took the
French capital as a field for intro
ducing the telephone. Soon alter
reaching Paiis he amassed a fortune.
Having satisfied his thirst for dis
covery and invention in one direc
tion, Gower set to work experiment
ing with machinery for aerial navi
gation. He made extensive pre
parations for ascending in a monster
balloon from Dieppe. The balloon
went out to sea and the only vestige
of it that was ever found was the
basket. Gower was givon up for
lost. He had, not very long before,
married Mile. Nordica, the prima
donna, who, however, did not live
happily with her rich American
husband. Now comes the story
that on Malabar Hill, in Bombay,
the vanished American is living in
good health, while his brother,
George Lewis Gower, is in France,
taking care of his interests. Gower,
it is said, is a great friend of a
handsome Indian Princess, and is
the lion of a very lively European
