Hut established for the benefit of all.
THURSDAY, AUG. 23, 1888.
People residing in the neighbor
hood of the Chinese Theatre com
plain of that establishment being a
nuisance. The nuisance consists
' mainly in the diabolical noises, sup
posed by the Celestials to represent
music, which arc kept up until mid
night, sis nights in the week. Most
people who have to work for a living
require to be asleep at least an hour
or two before midnight, and falling
to get that early sleep they are ' not
in the best of trim for the following
day's duties. Now, there arc a
good many persons of this class liv
ing within sound of those frightful
noises which nightly emanate from
the Chinese Theatre, and they assert
that sleep is next to an impossibility
while the racket is on. There could
be no reasonable objection if the
Chinese who seem to find enjoyment
in the rattle of kerosene tins, or
something akin thereto, did not dis
turb the quiet of other people while
amusing themselves ; but as such is
not the case, it would not be unrea
sonable to require the theatre to
close, say at 10 o'clock, or to stop
the noise at that hour.
Several instances of unknown per
sons setting loose or appropriating
temporarily to their own use, horses
and horses and carriages, have been
reported recently. The practice
may afford pleasure and amusement
to the perpetrators, but trouble, an
noyance and sometimes loss to the
owners. It is a pity that the police
do not catch some offender in this
line, and make an example of him by
inflicting on him the heaviest pen
alty tho law allows. The latest case
reported is by Mr. R. Lishman.
While at the band concert at Tho
mas Square the other night, Mr.
Lishman left his mare, saddled and
bridled, securely fastened to a rope
outside. "When the gentleman went
for his mare at the close of the con
cert, there was nothing there but
the rope. This had been removed
from the animal, and carefully coil
ed on the fence. The marc and fix
ings had disappeared and have not
yet been recovered. The guilty
party or parties merit the severest
punishment provided for such of
fences. The trouble is to catch
them. How to do it U a question
for the police to solve.
A few minutes before going to
press information was brought to us
that tne mare had just been recov
ered. ? 0 0

Hie President here announced

It was as follows:
To the Hon. W. R. Castle, Presi
dent of the Legislative Assembly of
the Kingdom, Sir: 1 return here
with to the Legislative Assembly of
the Kingdom without' my signature
the bill 'Abolishing the Ollicc of

follows, viz. :
The abolition of the olllce of Gov

vessels of great and friendly Powers,
where no exchange of international

with foreign countries, it is neces
sary that such function should be
The form of government of the
Kingdom and the peculiar situation
of the islands separated as they are,
make it desirable to maintain on the
principal islands the office of a re
presentative of the Sovereign.

covered his object, he rose fiom his

which happened to be in his room,
and advancing towards Mr. Pitcher,
said, "if you don't go out of this
room very quickly, there will be a
collision of pitchers here, and if
your skull does not get the worse of
it, that will not be my fault."

the case, and reached the conclusion
that bis decision ought to bo in favor
of Mr. Pitcher, but this tampering

against Pitcher, but finally decided
