A WORK OF ART.
, An Italian mendicant, with bare
knees looking out hungrily through
tattered trowscrs, with toes that dis
regard the protection of cow-hide,
with unkempt hair that seems to
dance derision nt a brush and comb,
with a mutilated hat cocked on one
side of, probably once, a proud
head, with a guitar strung over his
shoulder, with an attitude of a tra
gedian and witli mouth wide-open
ho sings for God's sake, help me.
Beside the mendicant stands a half
starved and ragged urchin singing
witli his whole heart. The above
carving is in possession of Hon. II.
A. Widemnnn, and is, most likely,
the ilncst piece of work of that kind
in tho city. The work was dono in
Italy. It is in a glass case, and
rests on a fine table made by Mr.
Otremba. Mr. Widcmann may placo

of a day or two, in one of the town
Mr. P. Horn, of candy, cake, and
ice cream reputation, was not satis
fied with feeding the people with
delicious edibles at the Odd Fellows'
party, last night ; but he must get
in a second edition of tho good
work, this morning, the field chosen
in tho latter case being the Bulletin
Ofllcc. Horn does not profess to
possess the power of working mira
cles, nevertheless he has some secret
power of producing wonderfully
fascinating llavors to his ice cream
and cake, which tempt one to bo
gluttonous. Then tlicro is some
thing in the incxhaustiblencss of the
supply which borders upon the
miraculous. The containers that
came to the ollico to-day, wero
drawn fiom by everybody in the
premises, except Brown, who was at
the Court reporting, and got left
again, and yet the supply was not
exhausted. Everybody smacked
his chops, wished ho had a larger
stomach, and expressed the decided
opinion that "Horn's lec Cream and
Cako aro way up: number one:
cannot bo beaten." Thanks for
remembering our birthday. We

ODD FELLOWS' ANNIVERSARY CELE
BRATION. The G8th anniversary of tho order
of Odd Fellows, celebrated con
jointly by the members of tho Ex
celsior nnd Harmony Lodges, at
Harmony Hall, last evening, was a
pleasant event. At 8 o'clock the
assembly sang the opening ode,
then followed a prayer'by Rev. A.
Mackintosh and the reading of tho
anniversary proclamation by W. K.
Foster, D. I). G. H. Mrs. Porter
gave a piano solo, Mr. W. O. At
water sang n song, Kov. J. A. Cru
zan delivered an address, Miss A.
Austin sang a song, Mrs. W. L.
Hopper gnvo a recitation, Kov. A.
Mackintosh sang, am Mr. W. K.
Foster delivored the closing ro
niaiks. In the reading of the anni
versary proclamation, Mr. Foster
interestingly told of how the Order
of Odd Fellows was introduced into
the United States in ,1817, by
Thomas Wildy, who, with the assist
ance of John Welsh and tho news
papers, brought together on April
L'Gth, 1817 nt a public house, known
as the Seven Stars, the magic
number' of live persons who then
and thoro sojeinny instituted n
lodge. Other lodges soon sprang
tip, swelling the membership to
thousands, and to-day the annual
revenup of tho fraternity in the
United' States amounts to about
gq,000,000, tho annual relief paid
to the sick about '83,000,000, whp
tho nnnuai amount paid to orphans
and widows is fully 8170,000. Key.
J. A. Cruzan lu his address related
traditions of Odd Fellowship reach
ing back to Adntn, who was surely
an Odd Fellow, nnd to Abraham
who was a Grand Sire. Mr. Cruzan
said that tlicro wero not many se
crets in tho order, and ho ventured
to say that any lady in tho audience
possessed more secrets than the or
der. After the literary exercises
tho assembly was invited to partake
of refreshments. The refreshments
supplied by Mr. F. Horn wero
plentiful nnd excellent. Ice cream,
cakes, bonbons, Jellies, gingernle,
lemonade, coffee, sandwiches, and
mnny other nice edibles were served
out. At about 9 :30 o'clock dancing
began and was kept up, with zest,
until after midnight.
Is now issued and will be found to
be an interesting nnd comprehensive
number, containing 40 columns of
reading matter on local topics, and
a complete resume of Honolulu nnd
island news. There is no better paper
published in tho Kingdom to send to

Wednesday, April 27th.
On the opening of the Court this
morning, His Honor tho Chief Jus
tice intimated to counsel, of whom
there were eighteen present, that as
tho Term was drawing to a close,
and tlicro were yet 18 cases on the
calendar to be heard by the Court
in Banco, ho would suggest that each
counsel engaged, limit his argument
to within an hour, and thereby
nccelerato the work to he accom
plished. Mr. Dole said that he was pre
pared to comply witli His Honor's
The first case was then called
which was tho Minister of the In
tel ior vs. It. J. Creighton, to answer
for contempt of Court. The con
tempt consists in publishing an ab
stract of tho petition for an injunc
tion against tho Minister of the
Interior to restrain him from selling
certain lands on the island of Hawaii
specified in such petition.
Mr. Hatch, counsel for Mr. Creigh
ton, moved that the answer of de
fendant be made returnable before
some one Justice of the Court in the
first instance. He did not deny tiiat
the full Court had power to hear and
convict for contempt of Court, hut
he hoped the Court in Banco would
not deprive his client of tho time
requisite to prepare a full aud com
plete answer to the summons issued
HisIIonor the Chief Justice said the
idea of making the answer returnable
this day, and bringing it before tho
Court in Banco was to secure a hear
ing this Term, but if counsel was
not fully prepared, he would order
that it tako its regular place on the
On this ruling, Mr. Hatch with
drew his suggestion, it having been
made, as stated by him, in order to
give himself timo to prepare a full
and sufllcicnt answer.
The Court then proceeded with
Wednesday, April 27th.
Of six cases of drunkenness on
the chargo sheet, there were four
pleas of guilty, and two forfeited
bail, aggregating an addition of $36
to the tine fund.
A prisoner named Kclcmencko
was charged with larceny of poi
from William Auld nt the Insano
Asylum. Plea of guilty, and sen
tenced to a further term of two
months' imprisonment, and costs $1.

Story's Inst statue, "A Christ," is
an original and beautiful conception.

ANCIENT PUNISHMENTS OF WOMEN.
In the early days of England men
were too humane to hang womon,
but they drowned thorn. During
the reign of Henry III, however, a
woman was hanged, hut as she did
not die after being on the gibbet for
a day, thoy cut her down and she
was granted a pardon. Adulterous
women and soreoresscs were drown
ed or smothered in mud. Stones
were fastened to their necks to pre
vent their swimming, or they were
sewed up in sacks. Sometimes they
were drowned in company witli a
cat, a dog and a snako. The Anglo-Saxons
drowned women guilty
of theft. Tho criminal was thrown
from tho cliff or submerged. In
thu Tenth century n woman was
drowned at London, bridge. "Wo
men were punished by drowning in
Scotland. In 1590 Grisscll Mathcm
was condemned by the High Court
of Edinburg ,(to bo taken to the
North lock and tlicro drowned till
sho bo dead."
A memorable instanco of drown
ing occurred at llavaiia October M,
1130. Agnes llernaurian, wife of
Duko Albert tho Pious, was dropped
off tho bridgo of tho City of Stras
burg into the Danube, by order of
her father. Sho appears not to
have been put into a sick, aud her
limbs not to have been securely
bound, for she rose to tho surface
of the water and swam to the shore,
crying "help, help," but the execu
tioner put a long pole into her hair
and kept her down.
According to the )anl&l laws,
women vere burjod alive for theft,
a method of punishment pot un
known in Franco, in 133J Maroto
Duplas was scourged and Hubjcoted
to this cruel doath at Abbeville, and.

ceiver of stolen goods was, by order
of tho Provost of Paris, buried alive
in frout of the gibbet in that city.
In ancient German history we read
of female criminals being impaled
in the mud, and m comparatively
recent years tho remains of. several
bodies have been found to prove
tho truth of this assertion. In early
England a cook once poisoned four
teen porsons. The authorities did
not belicvo they had a punishment
sulllciently severe for her case, so a
law passed making her crime punish
able by being boiled to death.

stirring times there. Three British
men-of-war arc in the harbor of
Puerto Caballo, the port of Caracas,

ish Minister has left tho Capital and
is on board ono of the war-ships,
diplomatic relations between the
British and Venezuelan Govern
ments having been severed. The
complications nrc due to the im
prisonment of English sailors and
citizonsin 1883 without just cause,
intermixed with the question of
boundaries between British Guiana
and Venezuela. Sir "William Robert

demanded satisfaction and the re
loasc of the sailors and passengers
of the English vessels Henrietta and
Josephine, and later demanded com
pensation from Venezuela, hut with
out result. In October last the
English Government demanded an
instant reply. The matter was
again brought before the Govern
ment of Venezuela at Caracas, bqt as
no satisfaction could ho obtained
diplomatic relations wore llnally
severed as before stated. The
