KALIHI VALLEY ROAD.
The road into and tliro1 h Kaliiii
valley is greatly in need of atten
tion. It is almost impassable to
vehicles in places. In the Appro
priation Act is an item of $2,000 for
this road, which is pronably sufli
cient to place it in as good a condi
tion as the residents of the valley
desire. Unless work is commenced
at once, it will be loo late to do any
thing until next summer, for the
wet season is near at hand, during
which road-making is out of the
question in a rainy icgion like Ka
lihi Valley, and the residents will
have great difficulty in getting their
produce to market all the winter.
A consideration which should have
weight with the authorities in decid
ing what road work should have pre
cedence for it cannot be all taken
in hand at once is the fact that
Ivalihi Valley is occupied from its
mouth to its source by an industrial
and industrious population who have
no way of getting their produce,
bananas, pine apples, milk, fire
wood, charcoal, etc., to market but
over this road.
"Lower price are offered for island
grown potatoes than those from
abroad, and yet tho island product
is the liner article," says the "Ad
vertiser." The same paper asserts
that "as fine potatoes can bo raised
here as ever are raised in Now Zea
land." If by the fineness of the
island potato is simply meant its
size and appearance, the "Adverti
ser" may he right; but the quality
of the imported article is decidedly
superior, ami that b why it com
mands a bettor price. Most potato
caters call a potato good or had in
proportion to its mealincs3 or hard
ness. A mealy potato is good, and
n hard potato is bad, with the majo
rity of people ; although some pre
fer the latter. The New Zealand
article takes the lead for mealiness,
nntl therefore it takes the lead in
pripo.- Island potatooa are not
jnealy. At least, tlio writer has
never found one after a lozcu years'
search. Will take the Tow Zealand
article any time and every time at
, double the price of tho homo pro
duct. Experienced fanners assert
that n llttlo frost or n very nenv np
proach thereto i9 necessary to tho
production of the highest quality of
potatoes. ?o thnt elevated legions,
where this condition is present,
should be selected in this icgion for
KniTon Uri.u.Tix : Tlio prcsiunp
tion is that editors should or ought
to know everything that is going on.
He should know law to he able to
review Legislative Acts and legnl
decisions (always keeping in view
the libel enactments) ; he should be
versed in physic to enable him to
review a coroner's iuucsts; he
should be a mathematician in order
to explain the Appropriation Act of
the last sobsion. It is very doubt
ful whether he should have any po
litical or sectarian views; but he
should understand a little of civil
engineering to enable him to give
an opinion just how many tunes a
street should be dug up and filled
up in order to obtain a grade ; and
this brings me to the question Iwisli
to ask. At whose expense is King
street being graded, the Tramway
Co. or the Government? Is It neces
sary to cut the load at Lcleo to the
extent that it's being done and who
pays for the damage to the property
which is very great? An answer to
this will oblige a number of
At the expense of the Govern
ment, of course. We have express
ed the opinion that it was not neces
sary to cut away so much of the
road at Lcleo, and believe we
are right. As to paying for damage
to property, if anybody the Govern
ment, we presume, is liable. En.
Eihtok Uuxlktin : A few months
ago, wlien we saw tnc bovcrmncni
Surveyor's tent roosting on the sum
mits of our Kohala range, the sweet
hope of a nice home arose in many
an Anglo-Saxon, German, Portu
guese and Hawaiian heart; but,
alas, as many a thing in this chang
ing world, that hope was but a
dream, a waning shadow shattered
by the Government advertising the
sale of a lease of 75!) acres of land
Every week we read in the papers
sad complaints about hosts of resi
dents leaving for more propitious
shores ; now, would not part, at
least, of the problem "how to keep
the population here," have been
solved, if the Government had
granted homesteads? As it is now,
said lands only profit two or three
well to do cattle-raisers.
Rut one may object, some of
these lands are "in lite" and plenty
of lawsuits may be encountered. A
poor answer, in my opinion. Dis
putes arc as liable to arise from a
void lease, as from ;i void sale ; be
sides, only those lands whose titles
are not disputed could be sold now,
and the remainder later.
Seven bundled and fifty-nine
acres divided in lots of fioin 1.") to
20 acres would make from -10 to 50
persons happy, and those and their
children and their children's chil
dren to many generations would
bless the Refoun paity.
Let us hope that the Ministers
will reconsider their decision, and
give the poor man the only chance
he has, to secure a home, as it is
next to impossible for him to buy a
foot of land in this district.
THE NEWS OF THE VILLACE BY
THE HILO BAY.
Dkah Mil. Editor, Sir: I notice
by the read of the paper that friends
will often write of the news from
our little village bo I also do this
write with the trust that many may
be joyful to see another word from
their native birthplace which is not
much JAM! with nonsense. Tlieie
may not much news be said about
here, but another murderer have
been found in Puna.
There one old native man who
been friendly to every peoples was
foul murder by some Chinaman who
have been with the Polico to Prison
this week in a whale-boat to Hilo.
The Sheriff was gone to visit the
.surround of the Island but the
Sheriff Deputy was here and was do
much work to find out everything
borne of the peoples is much
frightened because thoy think many
Chinamans is bad and wishes to kill
every other peoples but 1 do not
think it must be so. The workmans
hero says that not much monoy is
circulation now, but is better than
many months passed. Some of our
friends is doing much work and
some now house is made in the

Government doctor get too small
pay for the many work she have to
do free, only it was best for the
poor man, but many was vuh
enough to pay say for tho Govern
ment to pay enough, so she lo--o

CAPTURE OF LEPERS.
Tlio steamer Pole arrived yester
day from Kauai, with twelve lepers
on board. About two weeks ago
the Attorney-General sent special
olilcer King-iley to Kauai, with ill
s' Mictions to visit tlio district of
Waimea and attempt the capture
of a number of lepers known to be
there. Al riving at Waimea, Kings
ley in company with Deputy Sher-
lfl Slolz, started for the abode of
the lepers and after very little trou
ble captured twelve who were
brought down as above stated.
There are a few more lepers in the
district and Kingslcy leaves again
on the Mikahala to-morrow for the
puipose of capturing them.
The New Yoik Tribune of August
Ifi talks in the following humorous
strain of disarmament in the Hawai
Kor several j-enrs the European
Powers have been increasing their
respective armies, improving their
destructive weapons of nil kinds,
and generally following tho maxim
which declares it wise to prepare
for war in times of peace. At the
same time each Power has frankly
asserted that nothing would plcaso
it better than to disarm and con
vert its swords into ploughshares,
or at least into corkscrews, but that
what is needed to start a general
disarmament is n practical exam
ple. At length that example has
been given, and there is no longer
airy excuse for the maintenance of
tho overgrown, cumbrous and cost
ly armaments which are in them
selves perpetual incentives to war.
With a far-sighted humanity and
magnanimity to bo admired and en
vied by more sordid governments,
the Legislature of tho Hawaiian Isl
ands has hacriflccd its pride in the
general interest, and taken the init
ial step in the grand movement of
pacification and fratornization, the
completion of which will evidently
usher in that "federation of the
world" long since forehadowed by
JJy a single stroko of tho pen, so
to speak, the noblo Hawaiian Legis
lature has abolished tho navy of tho
Cannibal Islands, and reduced the
army to what may almost be termed
an abject peace basis. That slon
did military machine whoso martial
tread orstuhilo sounded in rhythmic
vibrations through tho palm-shaded
avenues of Honolulu, and whoso
gorgeous uniforms shcxi Ineffable
lustro upon tho solemn functions of
King Kalaknua's court, 19 legislated
out of existence reduced to il3
lowest denomination lepresonlcd
henceforth by a beggarly airay of
sixty-five warriors, of whom no less
than eight arc full privates. It is
time that this does not include the
-ynl band. The vast European in-teui.;-
on whoso behalf this groat
leniinciaiion has been offered, did
notvequif t luit lat and bitterest
dcprlvntio The band remains,
and a fait j "i mc of generals,
represented b nuy-suven out of
tho sixty-five ' gallant spirits who,
like the Last Rose of Summer, are
left blooming alone. But how mag
nificent is the moral spectacle pre
sented. Hawaii, standing four
square to every wind that blows,
self-stripped of all her defences,
"owning her weakness," like the vic
tim of the Bridge of Sighs, extends
a trustful hand to her covetous
neighbors, throws herself upon the
protection of the Cosmos, as it were,
and silently intimates that this is
the way to introduce the millen
nium. The effect must ho prodi
gious, and there can no longer be
any pretext for postponing the gen
et al disarmament of Euiopc. N.
