OUR WEEKLY EDITION.
The Daily Uult.etin has com
menced issuing a weekly edition,
mainly for sending to the other
islands. The first number was
printed this morning, and several
hundred copies go by the Hall and
the Kinati to Maui and Hawaii this
evening for free distribution. This
paper will be issued weekly on Mon
day and Tuesday, to suit the time
of departure of steamers for wind
ward ports. This weekly edition
has been started in response to
numerous pations and well-wishers
on the other islands, who have re
peatedly urged it. "Wo have no
doubt that the popularity which the
Daily Bui.i.utik has acquired in
Honolulu, as the most icad of any
English paper published in this
city, will soon he accorded the
"Wki.ki.y Scmmahy on the other
islands. Business people will find
it a good medium through which to
"reach" the people on the vaiious
islands of the gioup.
UK. CAINT-, M.
Mr. W. S. dune, M. P., who has
been slaying some time at Singa
pore, on his journey round the
woild, has written a severe ciiticism
of the woik done by the Christian
missions in that part of the globe.
He says :
"The heathen of the Straits Set
tlements are not much troubled by
missionary zeal. How is "it, I
wonder, that we so peisistently neg
lect the conveision of tlie heathens
at our own doors in our vaiious
down colonics? Can it be that the
specimens of Christianity which
furin our governing and merchant
classes are of such a quality that
missionaries find it impossible to
get the heathen, to believe in the
lcligion -whose products they are'
The existence of 7,000 Eurasians in
the btraits colonies, the illegitimate
olfspring of 'Christian' fatheis, com
bined with the fact that 'Christian
Government diaws the bulk of its
revenue from the encouraged vices
and degradation of the population,
ni.ty go far to account for the obsti
nate preference of a Mahommedan
native for a religion which enjoins
total abstinence, and forbids the so
cial habits which produce Eurasians.
The mei chants say the missionaiies
. are idle and woithless; the mission
aries retort in kind, and, for myself,
1 fear that in Singapoie at any rate
there is truth on both sides. There
is a magnificent cathedral at Singa
pore, with a Right Rev. Bishop, a
venei able archdeacon and an assis
tant colonial chaplain. There is a
eurpliced choir to boot. The So
ciety for the Propagation of the gos
pel has also a missionary, who gets
300 or iMOU a year. The only na
tives visible at tho Cathedral ser
vices are the fifteen or twenty
Malays, who, standing outside the
building, pull the punkah stiings
to cool the fashionnble worshippers
inside. Tho only attempt to reach
the heathen by the Church of Eng
land is a small school chapel, at
which there is an attendance of fifty
or sixty most. The Presbyte
rians have a fine handsome chapel
for themselves. I surveyed it fiom
tho outside, and it had a fashion
able congregation of J 58 or 200,
lllty or sixty handsomo caniages
waiting outside, with as many native
servants as theie were good Presby
tia ians inside. The minister gets
000 a year and a freo house. The
English Presby tei inn mission lias
one clerical and one lay missionary.
'J hcbe two energetic brethren have
four small 1001ns in Singapore in
which they hold services, and in
none of which do they muster a con
gregation of fifty souls.
1 do not venture to judge these
-gentlemen. I am quito sure, from
all I henul, that they arc excellent
and pious men, but tho lesults of
their labours arc miserable and 1111
satisfaclori' ; and I cannot but
think their methods and plans of
working must be wrong. I think
it would be well if the secretaries of
our missionary societies spent 12
months in tho East trying to find
out how it is that Jesuits succeed so
well when they iail so completely.
Vhut 1 want explaining is, the com
parative zeal and success of the
Roman Catholic, and the compaia
tie failure of Piotestanism, iu tho
conversion of the heathen to the
Christian faith. Tho fact is there
and is stubborn. I draw tho figures
from returns furnished to tho Gov
ernment of Singapore by the vaiious
denomination themselves, and pub
lished in the Bliic-houk for 1880."
Tall Mall Gazette.
LAST MOMENTS OF THE LATE EM
The following account of the Era
poor's Inst moments will be read
with interest all the more ns it is
umlci stood to come from the pen of
tho Court Chaplain, Dr. Kogcl, who
was called iu to administer the
spiritual comforts of Chi istian con
solation to his dying Majesty:
Dr. Kogcl repaired to the Emper
or's sick bed at fi o'clock on Thurs
day evening. After a few obsei ra
tions, in tho couise of which the
chaplain spoke of the nation's pray
erful sympathy with the august
patient, he repeated tho verses of
Palin xxiii. During the evening
u number of fiuther passages of
Sciiptuic were repeated, not at one
time, but at intervals, so that the
Kinperoi's strength might not be
ovci taxed. Verses were also read
liom Church hymns, including one
of the Emperor's favoiite verses,
beginning, "When 1 shall depart
this world, depart thou not fiom
me." One beginning "Christ's
blood and lightcousncss;" and the
closing veise of the hymn, "Com
mend thy ways unto the Lord."
"When the chaplain lepealed the
words of Simeon. "Lord, now lettest
Thou Thy servant dcpait in peace,
accotding to Thy word, for mine
eyes have seen Thy salvation," the
Giaud Duchess of Baden asked her
father it he had mulct stood what
had been said. lie ga e an alllrma
tivc reply by repeating the last
words of the passage. "Mine eyes
have seen Thy salvation." In one
of the pauses "the Emperor remark
ed, quite spontaneously, "God has
helped uie with His name." At
another time ho 'aid, like one
dreaming, "We aie going to have a
deotional hour together. Then,
after an interval, lie explained, on
coming to himself, "I have had a
dieain; it was the last ceiemonyin
the cathedial." He evidently had
in mind the picture of his own obse
quies. At -1 o'clock on Friday
morning Court Chaplain Kogel
offered up a prayer beginning,
"Erscheine mir zum Schilde;" and
in repetition of the Loid's Prayer,
which followed, the Empress joined
aloud. Then the chaplain began
P'.Um xxvii, "The Lord is my light
and my salvation ; whom shall 1
fear? The Lord is the strength of
my life; of whom shall I be afiaid?"
And the Grand Duchess of Baden
again asked, "Papa, do you under
stand?" The expiessivc answer
was, "It was beautiful." Upon
this the devoted daughter inquired,
"Do you know that mamma is sit
ting by your bed and holding your
hand?" At these wouls Hie dying
Emperor opened his eyes, and turn
ed them for a long lime upon his
mournful consort. When he closed
them again it was forever. Thus
his last looks were given to his wife.

THE V0YACE OF THE U.S. S. 'JUNIATA.'
The following account of the late
voyage of ihe U. S. S. Juniata fiom
Honolulu, kindly communicated by
one of the officers of that vessel,
will no doubt be of interest to many
of our readers:
After a very pleasant stay of three
months at Honolulu, we weighed
anchor and steamed out of the har
bour on December 31st, 1887.
Our adieux weie as sincere as af
fectionate, and before our 79 days'
passage was half over moie than one
of us wished himself back again
with the big-hcaited King Knlakaua.
It was our intention to stop at
Midway Island, a United States
possession in the Pacific, to note
any changes which might have oc
curred around its coral and uninvit
ing shores. After 23 days we were
within -10 or 30 miles of the island,
but squally weather, variable winds
and dangers surrounding the island
obliged us to turn back to the trades
and proceed en route to this place.
Theusually pleasant weather of the
tiopics now accompanied us and
many an evening was pleasantly
spent on the quarter deck smoking
our after-dinner cigais, and rehear
sing old 'chestnuts' (some might be
called 'horse-chestnut.') The most
general question was 'when will wo
"Wo were out G t days before sight
ing either a bail or a bit of mother
eaith; on March 5th Assuption Isl
and, of tho Ladione Group, was
sighted 32 miles distant. This isl
and is 2,818 feet high and volcanic,
and was in a htuto of eruption.
On March Ctli, we sighted tho isl
and of Farallon do Pajaros another
At this time some doubt was ex
pressed about our being able to buck
tho pre; ailing northerly gales, to
make Yokohama, and Manila, Hong
kong, tho Islo of Gunm (uninhabit
ed), and Peel Island (85 inhabitants)
were spoken of as poits and places
All our axes were mustered and
got iu readiness to cut wood on
Peel Island. After a deliberate
council of war, and by the grace of
God, with a favourable breeze, we
began Btcntning towards Yokohama,
and none too soon, for we wt'ruwith
in 00 mili'i of Peel Island, wheic wo
might have remained indefinitely.
Otu escape was ti genuine god-send.
Otu good iron horse behaved nob
ly, as well as economically.
' At 3 p. m., on tlio 19th wo
anchored in this harbour; were
boarded by Lieut. "Wcdhams of the
good ship Monoc.icy, who imparted
to us the only news of tho outside
world which we hcaid this year.
The funiiiist and saddeit was the
staitling news Hint we had been re
ported lost. As 11 matter of fuel, in
all our 27 ycais expericiue, we
never had such generally pleasant
weather for so long a passage:
Outside of the routine woik ntul
drills, our time was spent in reading
(we hud provided ourselves with a
good stock before leaving Honolulu)
playing hearts, a little photography,
and a little journalism. On Wash
ington's biitliday, we had a glorious
time. The crew had a tournament,
the most amusing features of which
were the greased pole, bobbing for
buns, the obstactle race, and last
but not least the 'Cake Walk.'
Our ptovisions held out first rate,
although shortly after le.iving Hono
lulu, weevils appealed in our Hour
and rice. Naturally, canned provi
sions always tire after a month at
sea and ou may rest assuied that
wo all enjoyed our first and si cond
and thiid fiesh meals in this busy
and jolij land of the Mikado.
Our joy on anival was overcast
by the sad news of sickness and
death iu some of our families at
home, and by the sad news of our
early departure for Coiea; while we
are here, howevir, we will endeavour
to make hay while the sun shines.
