Mr. S. B. Dole is now a part of
the Supreme Court of tho Hawaiian
Islands. From the Bar he rises to
the Bench as Fourth Associate Jus
tice. The position is honorable,
and Judge Dole honors the position.
While being a gentleman of varied
and extensive information, and a
lawyer of learning, experience and
ability, he is above all an upright,
honorable and conscientious man
all of which qualities combine to fit
their possessor for the responsible
position to which lie has been ele

The Government schools of the
kingdom resumed work yesterday,
after the Christmas vacation. The
occasion is an appropriate one for
a remark or two touching the educa
tional affairs of the country. It
must be admitted that, all things
, considered, our educational require
ments have been and arc being
pretty well looked after. There are
some excellent private schools in
Honolulu and also on some of the
other islands of the group, which
compare without disadvantage to
ourselves with similar institutions in
some older and greater countries
than this. The extensiveness and
completeness of their catalogues of
instruction occasionally elicit ex
pressions of surprise from visiting
strangers. Our public school sys
tem is something not to be ashamed'
of "With regard to its extensive
. ness, there is probably not a locality
on the Islands with a score children
, but has a Government school of some
kind,' where the rudiments of learn
ing arc imparted, either in the Eng
lish or the Hawaiian language, while
in every populous centre there is an
English school with a more or less
complete corps of teachers. Here
in the capital city, the Government
schools, both in the range of sub
jects taught and the average ability
of the teachers, maintain a position
which reflects credit on the King
dom. The same may be said of the
principal country schools. Natur
v ally the standard of the smaller and
morc out-of-the-way schools is not so
high, and in some of them there is
room for considerable improvement.
It is not pretended for one moment
that our public school sj'btcm is per
fect in any of its departments, but
that when the means at command
and the various special difllcultieo
which have existed are taken into
considcialiou, tho general condition
is commendable. Nevertheless, wo
iook hopefully for still greater
achievements, and predict that the
end of the year just entered upon
will find the government schools
general! ahead of their present con
dition. 'With a new Board of Educa

A WILD GAT.
"Come aboard the bark Lilian,
Mr. Reporter," said Captain Dun
can to a scribe this morning, "and
sec the wild cat there."
"Lead on Duncan," cried tho
scribe, shrugging his shoulders and
assuming the walk of Buffalo Bill ;
"lead on, and we'll lay the smoking
heart of the feline before the altar
of Nimrod." a
Having boarded the vessel, Dun
can and the scribe went down into
the cabin and closed the entrance.
The cat was locked in one of the
staterooms and was hidden inside of
a locker. Failing to sec the prize
through the partly opened door of
the state-room, Captain Duncan
opened it wide and proceeded to
make a racket with a broom. The
scribe, pale with fear, grabbed a
bundle of joss sticks for self de
fense, and ciouched himself in a
corner of the cabin. All of a sud
den out came the cat, making a
leap of several feet and landing on
the cabin table. The eat, about
the size of !n ordinary dog, that is,
much larger than the common do
mestic cat, was of a dark gray
color. It had large paws with long
nails. Its eyes had a fierce expres
sion, in fact, the whole cat was as
wild as wild could be. "When the
feline bounded on the tabic, the.
scribe began to say the alphabet,
but before he had uttered the first
letter, the cat had made a leap for
the stairway leading on deck, then
down again, and with a 12-foot
jump went through the open sky

THE SUCAR TRUST.
There seems to be little doubt
that the formation of the so-called
sugar trust will be completed. The
objections that have been raised by
those who arc interested in the
work of this association have one bv
one neutralized or set aside, so that
now we are given to understand
there is little beyond the settlement
of a few unimportant details to pre
vent the different great refineries of
this country from carrying on their
work under a single board of direc
tion. So long as tho sugar trust is
buttressed about by the high duty
that is now imposed upon sugar, it
is in a position to bid defiance to
loreign competition. AtJeast there
is a sufficient margin between the
average duty on raw and the average
duty on refined sugar to permit the
refiners, unvexed by American com
petition, to make very huge profits
befoio raising the price of their re
fined sugar to a point that would
permit of foreign competition.
This fact may be appreciated
when it is said that well informed
authorities nsnert that a profit of
one-half cent per pound on refined
sugar would in a year enable tho
American refiners to pay a dividend
of $12,000,000, or more than SO per
cent, on the capital they have invest
ed in their business. But a change
of price of half a cent or even a cent
per pound would attract but slight
attention from tho consumers of
sugar, who number every man,
woman mid child throughout tho
land. At the present timo tho busi
ness is carried on upon a very ilno
margin, the profits being limited to
n small fraction of a cent per pound
upon tho refined sugar, That the
managers pf the trust will endeavor
to increase their net receipts by
other means Jthan economies in pro
duction goes witliout tho saying, for
k. almost inevitably happens that
those in possession of a monopoly
aie not content with the profits
niising from a more cfllcient con
duct of business, but feel itresist
ibly tempted to take advantage of
their opportunities by exacting
larger payments fiom tho public.
In tho instanco of the sugar trust,
the lightness of the burden that
would fall upon each individual by
an advance in price of a half cent or
a cent per pound would be an addi
tional renson why, when the trust
was completed, such an advance in
price should be attempted.
But even if tho profits resulting
from combination were to bo limited
to a reduction in the cost of produc
tion, tho formation of a trust of this
character would bring about serious
changes in business, some of which
might be detrimental to this city.
It is, we believe, admitted that the
cost of refining sugar in and around
New York city is less than it is in and
around Boston. In the former place
the refineries are larger, and, on the
whole, better equipped, laxes arc
lower, water rates less, wages not
as high, freight rates from South
America and tho West Indies arc
less to New York than they arc to
Boston, while the refined sugar can
be shipped from New Yoik to points
of distribution in the West at a low
er price than from this city. These
various advantages have enabled
the sugar refiners of New York to
make money out of their business at
times when the iellners of Boston
have been doing hardly more than
Now, there is pioduccd in and
around Boston four or five times as
much refined sugar as is required to
meet the demands of our local
market. The excess has hithoitn
been sent West to be sold in com
petition with the product of New
York refineries. But when the trust
management takes entire control,
the shiewd business men who will
then be in charge cannot fail to put
to themselves the question: Why
should we continue to carry on a
Iaige refining business in Boston
when it would be more profitable to
us to transfer a part of it to New
York city? Looking at the matter
in tho light of a business proposi
tion, it is not only quite possible,
but fairly probable, that when the
trust management has thorough!'
established itself it will limit the
sugar refining business of Boston to
ceitainly not more than one-quarter
of its present volume.
Such a transfer will be obviously
detrimental to the trade interests of
our city. A large number of ves
sels now annually arrive at this port
laden with sugar. Their cargoes
provide business and profit to steve
dores and warehousemen, and the
vessels themselves supply the ton
nage needed for our export trade.
The refineries not only give direct
employment to a large number of
our citizens, but there are a number
of trades and occupations that they
incidentally benefit, and it is there
fore, apparent that, however much
the sugar trust might gain by such
a change, its effect would be soii
ously felt in Boston. We do not
mean by this to assert that such a
transfer is now in contemplation,
but merely to point out that, bj' the
formation of this sugar trust, the
logic of events makes a decline in
the sugar refining business of Boston
almost a foregone conclusion. fS.

1'AIITY COMl'LCXIOX OP Till!
To the Editor of the Herald:
Since my last to jou, our elections
have taken place, and the Legisla
ture will.be gathered by proclama
tion of the cabinet on Thursday,
Nov. .", lor a short session. We
feel very hopeful as loour future.
Any fancy the King may have in
dulged iu of possibly recovering bis
lost power must have hopelessly
passed from him as soon as the full
result of the elections became
We expect to sec, among other
early acts of tho Legislature, the
notorious opium license abolished.
The Chinaman, T. Aid, who lost his
$71,000 paid in at the palace lor the
opium license, and which, perhaps,
was "tho last straw which broke the
camel's back" and induced the
revolution, died last week. It is
said the King was so disturbed by
this that he had some iO extra men,
upecial police, to guard him, fiMiing
some demonstration on the part of
tho Chinaman's fellow-countrymen.
An analysis, of the Legislature
soon to meet will bo interesting. 1
quote mainly from "tho Friend."
Of the 21 "nobles" only threo are
of native or. mixed blood. There
are 12 Americans, six English mid
three Germans. Several of the
Americans arc sons of missionaries,
born horo on tho islands. Twelve
of the nobles aro men of large
capital. Religiously a majority are
members of the Evangelical church,
sovernl of tho Anglican church, and
some of tho Catholic. Of tho 21
"representatives," 18 arc of native
and mixed blood, seven American
and four English. Tho Legislature,
as a wholo, indicates more than an
average order of ability and a gen
eral absence of coriupt influence iu
the elections, and inspires great con
fidence in the legislation which shall
lie conducted by it. One remark
able feature is that efforts have
been made under Mr, Gibson'?
former management to estrange tho
natives from the foreign population,
by raising a race prejudice. This
has signally failed, for in the dis
tricts where tho llnwaiians are in a
laige majority, they have voted
almost unanimously iu favor of the
relorm government. It is to be
hoped that the Hawaiian Govern
ment has passed through tho dark
hours before the dawn, and that
brighter days aro drawing near.
Sir. Gibson's former secretary,
Mr. Webb, has been convicted of em
bezzlement while in olllcc under Mr.
Gibson, and sentenced to one year's
imprisonment at hard labor. It
would seem that it ought to have
been Mr. Gibson instead of Mr.
Webb. It is hard for an elderly
person like Mr. Webb to bo placed
in his present unfortunate position,
but it appears to be right and just.
Tho suit of the widow St. . Clair
against Mr. Gibson for breach of
promise, is still before our courts":
Mr. Gibson, however, is ot a safe
distance in San Francisco. X.
Honolulu, Oct. 20. 1887. Ex.
Washington, Nov. 2 Tho atten
tion of Irving Scott of the San
Francisco Union Iron Works was to
day called to the Associated Press
dispatch sent out last night, which
intimated that it was next to im
possible to obtain on modern war
ships a speed of nineteen knots an
hour, and that it seemed unlikely
that the so-called Ill-knot ciuiser's
now building would ever attain that
speed. After reading over the des
patch, Mr. Scott said that it was
doubtless true, as it staled, that
there were only two or three naval
vessels in existence that could steam
nineteen knots an hour. That fact,
however, did not argue the inability
or American ship-builders to con
struct a vessel capable of making
that record. The English vessels
alluded to that had a speed of nine
teen knots were the outcome of
years of costly experiments, many
failures and much earnest thought,
and finally the result had been
reached. Our builders were not in
the initial stage, but were in a posi
tion to profit by everything that
others had learned, and he continu
ed: "The plans upon which the
cruisers arc now being built will, I
know, give us a speed of nineteen
knots an hour. You remember that
Secretary Whitney sent to England
for the best plans, so that the Navy
Department has in its possession
the very latest knowledge that the
most eminent naval architects have
acquired, and there is no reason
why we cannot do as well as others.
"Look at the telephone, for in
stance. The perfected instrument
of to-day ha,s been brought to its
present finished' stage after years of
experiment, yet at first it was merely
an indication of what might follow.
How long ago was it that twelve
knots an hour was considered the
triumph of ship building? About 5
years. Since then we have added
knot bj' knot, until to-day wc can
count upon nineteen with almost an
absolute certainty. A few years
ago it took twelve days to make the
trans-Atlantic passage. To-day the
Uinbria and other crack lines do it
in six. The Atlanta and Boston,"
continued Mr. Scott, "have attained
a speed of fifteen and one-half knots
an hour with an indicated horse
power of .'3,500. The Charleston
and Cruiser No. 2 will have a horse
power of 7,000, and a cruiser No. 5
10,000. So you sec that in requir
ing these vessels to make better
speed the same conditions have not
been exacted." Mr. Seott, in con
clusion, said that work on the
Charleston was going on vcrj' satis
factorily and that the department
was well pleased with the progress
made so far. Ho felt confident that
the Charleston would satisfy the
contract requirement. S. F.

"The common form of offensive
and defensive weapon at present,"
said Edward Weston, the prominent
electrician recently, "is something
that will throw a solid or an explo
sive metal projectile a solid shot, a
shell or a torpedo. Explosive' bul
lets for small arms are tabooed un
der the laws of war because they do
unnecessary damage ; that is, they
kill after stiiking, when the wounds
they first cause would be sufficient.
it lollows that it you could over
power j'our enemy without either
killing or wounding him, that plan
would be preferable to any now
existing. That is what I believe
can be done. It is well known that
nitrate of amyl possesses the power
of causing insensibility very quickly
in a human being breathing its
fumes. The effect is equivalent
temporarily to a paralytic stroke.
Now nitrate of amyl is very cheap
and plentiful. I propose to fire
shells filled with this chemical in
stead of gunpowder. It will not be
necessarj' to penetrate a ship. A
few gallons of this uitrate dashed on
the deck of a waiship would soon
render her crew helpless. The most
powerful ironclads would be even
more vulnerable than the light
cruisers, for they would be sucking
down great draughts of air through
their artificial ventilators, and the
odor would thus rapidly permeate
the whole ship. The whole crew
being rendered helpless for an hour
or two, the ship could, of course be
towed into a safe spot, while, the
captors ventilated her and removed
the insensible men." N. Y. Sun.

our vat tous island landings. Wc claim
these boats to be superior for Islnn I ma
toothers (cither built hero 01 Imported)
in oicrd essential points, and wc are
8iippor.cilu this opinion by thoo who
havousedthein, as well as by others who
1110 qualified to bulge. They aro built for
Ubo and durability, and not with the
view of having the benefit of future 10
piiirs. Wc 'use no cross grained and
useless Monkey Pod knees, tlmb.ers. or
lloors, nor straight wood stems Our -frames
aio all O k bent across without
u joint on the keel, Mid of a size, larger
than imual In other boats, they uie also
eloascr together, and double rlvlled to
the. keel, with additional floors between.
We have applied both strain and blows
to these steam bent timbers and find
that they are equivalent to tho so called
solid floors of twice the size, and are
consequently less liable to be severely
bilged, and are easier repaired when it
occurs. The gunwales 1110 of Oak. and '
vvlih the outside plniikltig aiclnvailably
in one plank from stern to stem. TIhj
hoisting Mtiip doe not go tbiough the
keel, cutting it away at a viUl point,
but toggled under a .sciow-bolt fastened
dead wood, and hinged aboe so as to
accommodate the pan oi hoist. Tho
limbers aie not cut away for water runs,
our Umbers aio In the keel. We havo
al-o a solid wide Iron plate on the keel
and stems of the boat which have secur
ed for theo boats their well deserved
reputation for superior build. Tho
model also compares favorably with
our best Unpolled boat--, ourylug
their width on the Ibwart, and
not on the gunwale as crank boats do,
t.kiug all tlie chafe and pounding
against vcsels and wlnuf, when dls
uliarglng. Our bent Oak knees also
carry out the rcquheinonts of the oldest
and 'most expei ienccdasaociation Known
who for 70 years have spnied neither
time nor money to piocuiv the best Suit
and life boats, wherever found. Diii-lug
the test of 18S1, flexibility in boats, was
found to be most 1 sauiuiitl. The rela ion
these knees'bear to the jointlcss section
timbers and to the boat her.-elf when se
verely s-truek, to pievcnt a damaging
concussion or any damage, can be read
ily seen. This quality cannot be found
iu boats stilly held in ono place, and
loose in another. Several naval Cap
tains and Officers who havo inspected
this system pronounce it a great Im
provement ovor the old, as a preventive
from being stovo in or bilged alongside
when being lowcicd at sea, as many
have been known to do the short floors
and timber ends lifting from the keel.
An other improvement, is that wo sell
these boats for $S0 less than was form
erly paid for this size boat here, nnd
it pays the builder and buyer better.
We have on hand two 2t feet freight
boats, price 230 to 230.
On stocks two 18 feet freight boats,
$130 to $150
A correct model of the 20 feet Kiuau
boat, $230 to $2I0.
Two 15 feet pleasuie, pine copper
fastened clinker, weight SO lbs., oars,
etc., r3 to 8G0.
Tlnce various sized skiffs all 'kinds,

Also our model yacht center board
sloop "Reform" all complete for pleas
ure or fishing, w ith hooks, lines, water
kegs, oars and rowlocks, anchor and
chains, extra sails, an oil stove, and a
little flat boat, that can bt carried on
deck. This is a speedy little craft, and
works second to none in our wateis.
trim was built for pleasure with safety,
to sail on her bottom, without packing
around tons of ballast. Can be rigged
nnd sail made In 15 minutes, and umig
ged in live. Price $275.
Wc are also prepared to give plans,
and estimates of all Kinds of scows,
rowing suif or sail boats, steam laun
ches, or schooners, in solid, bent frame,
or diagonal building. Our experience
in the latter mode dates from 185i, when
the celebrated yachts "Fox" and others
were built iu that way, this vessel was
severely tried in the Arctic for 3 years
under Sir J. McCliutoek, when In
search of Sir John Franklin. This mode
of building is highly recommended
where Inside llnish and capacity is an
object. We invito inspection of our
boats at the Enterpiise Planing Mill,
where samples may be found.
