THE PLANTERS' MONTHLY.
The Planters' Monthly for No
vember has just been issued. Its
editorial management is now in the
hands of Mr. H. M. Whitney. The
amount of matter has been doubled.
A large proportion of the present
number is occupied by minutes of
the annual meeting of the Planters'
Labor and Supply Company and re
ports of committees read at the
meeting. In addition to these, it has
a variety of inteiesting and instruc
tive original and select articles. One
from the Demerara Artosy, concern
ing the filtration of cane juice, is of
special interest to planters.

The native musicians, as the pro
cession halted at various points
along the route, chanting their mys
terious ancient meles and native
scngs, accompanied by wei.d mono
syllables and the beating of the
calabash di urns must have recalled
to the minds of the sutrounding
multitude of spectators, the limes
long gone by, and piobably stirred
paliiolic and poetical feelings, in
the breast of many a descendant
from the former geneiations of
chiefs and kings, and in listening
to their native music in their present
surroundings, they may have thought
with the patriotic Maluiin
" Tho land was beni'ilf'.'l,
Fair ioso the sp'ies, and gay tho bulld-
And lieu tho plains, like dreams of
But when I hem d my country's music
I sighed to be among her wilds again."
CAPTAIN J. H. CILL.
Captain J. II. Gill, of the E. J.
Spence, is a man of a long and large
sea experience. Thirty six years
ago, when quite a strippling, he
decided to forsake the land and be
take himself to tho "briny deep."
By diligent attention to duty and
close application to study ho was
qualified, in a few years, to tako
command of a ship, passed tho
necessary examinations, and received
his master's certilicates. Since then
ho has commanded many vessels,
and traversed the ocean to many
parts of the world, including the
five great continents of the globe
and islands almost innumerable.
For years tho Captain was engaged
in passenger tralllc, and has trans
portcdthousaiids of living beings
from one country to another, lie
ran to tho West Coast of New Zea
land in the early days of goldmining
in that country, was n pioneer to
settlements in Northern Australia,
and took some of the first gold and
dimond miners to the fields iu Africa,
And yet ho has never wrecked or
even damaged a vessel, nud lost only
one person overboard. Tlio E. J.
Spencc, which Captain Gill now com
mands, was built expressly for him,
about fifteen year ago, and he has
been in charge of her ever since.
When clean, she runs like a witch,
having often beaten steamer time.
She is bo tightly built, that alio has
never once required tho use of
THE ZEALANDIA'S DEPARTURE.
Notwithstanding the deplorable

Uapd was in attendance and plnycd

of the steamer. As tho vessel was

band played mid sang "Aloha Oc,"
which was a compliment duly appre

The preparations for tho luau of
this afternoon wprcon a most elabor
ate scale. The spacious lanni erected
between the Palace front and tho
King street gate of the Palace
grounds, was completed some two
weeks ago. The structure covers an
area of about 250 by 85 feet. The
walks about tho lanni arc heavily
cavpclcd with rice grass. The main
front of the Palace, facing the
lanai, is gorgcou.ly draped and
hung with flags of nil s'ics, the
grnnd verandah doorway beirg cur
tained, right and left with the Ha
waiian flag and the Royal standard.
Tho lanal is entered by several door
ways. At the main entrance, facing
the Palace, is a small vestibules
formed of a large Hawaiian flag
flanked by ohia trees, palm leaves
and fcins. The passages leading in
to tho head of tho table arc cur
tained, on the right, with the Brit
ish, and on the left, with the United
Stales flags. The roof and walls of
the lauai arc elegantly draped and
festooned with flags, ti leaves and
mailc. The royal table is handsomely
laid with trenches of silver and gold,
China ware, silver knives and forks,
cut glass iu blue, green, cherry and
other rich colors. The tablo is
margined with a stately row of
covered calabashes of native woods
of most elegant mako and finish.
Stately silver candelabra, are placed
at regular intervals. The whole of
the tablo ware is laid in a beautiful
expanse of leaves and flowers. The
services of the. Roj-al School boys
have been enlisted as waiters. With
their handsome uniform, they make
a line appearance as they run troop
ing about the place.
The tables aie meant to accommo
date five hundred, at a sitting.
Some fifteen hundred invitations
have been issued. To the number
of invited guests responding may be
added probably about a thousand of
the native Ilawaiians of all orders,
each one of whom is understood to
have a carte blanche for the event.
The luau was to take place at 2
'clock. As we go lo press soon
after that hour, further particulars
must be postponed until to-morrow.
WANT TO KNOW THE EEAS0N.
Eonon Bulletin: The follow
ing statement of facts may interest
some of your leaders and will illus
trate the very unfair way that some
people have in dealing with us
builders. I submit them to you,
asking jour indulgence for using
your popular columns.
Sealed lenders being called for
by Mr. Mclnerney for the construc
tion of a building, I called on him lo
ascertain if this would be a buna fide
bid and if the lowest responsible
party would get the job, lo which
he replied, yes. I thereupon sub
mitted mine in the usual way. On
opening the same it was found that
Mr. Kavnnagh had made the lowest
estimate, mine being the next. Tho
natural supposition was that Mr.
Kavanagh would get the building,
but for reasons unknown to me it
was rumored at first, that I was to
have it and not Mr. Kavdnagk, al
though why this should have been so
is impossible for me to see, as Mr.
Kavanagh was ready to qualify in a
satisfactory bond. 1 applied lo Mr.
Mclnerney severrl liraes and asked
him for a decision, which was put
off fiom day to day and week to
week. During this time another
rumor, that of Mr. E. B. Thomas
being the favoied one, made its
rounds, and having my re-iutation
at stake by being cast aside without
even as much as an explanation, I
again urged Mr. Mclnerney, "when
he told mo that Monday, the 15th
inst, he would give me his final de
cision without foil. On the morning
of this day I again called on him,
when 1 was simply lold after some
talk that Mr. Thomas would get the
job for reasons I did not really care
to know, only for this much as it
concerned my reputation as a
builder, but none at all wero offered
to mo, and my only course to the
public is to state all the facts con
cerning my unexplained dismissal,
less they may think that I am not
capable of performing my duties or
fulfilling my contracts as a builder.
Mr, Mclnerney has certainly the
privilege and it is undeniably his
province to accept whom ho pleases,
but the least thing a gentleman
certainly would do is to explain. It
is this unceremonious nnd off-hand
way of dismirsing which I object.to
and in which every fair minded per
sons will sustain me. If a person is
dismissed or discharged it is for
some reason, nud when it concerns
a man in my business it is well the
public should know that reason,
less, as 1 have said they fall into the
natural way of thinking that I am
incompetent, which I emphatically
I remain, dear bir, yours respect
fully, G. W. Lincoln,
