A project is on foot for the form

We arc glad to bo able to record
the fact that the Government Sur
vey Ofllcc is expecting soon to
commence laying off homesteads of
land not far from town. This is a
step in the right direction.
Our excessively dry weather con

There is an old tradition that
about a hundred years ago, Hilo
was visited with a drouth that lasted
tho belter part of a year. The
heavy forests became so dry that
lircs raged through them nnd des
troyed thousands of acres of heavy
ohia and koa. Food dried up and a
dire famine ensued, and drove
many of the natives to other districts
to live. Our present dry weather
looks as though theie might be some
truth in the tradition.
The speed j' and prompt trans
mission of the mails arc one of the
things that denote life in any gov
ernment. Sec with what despatch
tho civilized governments of the
world arc for wauling their mails to
all parts of then own domains. But
Hawaii is behind in this matter. We
understand that when the Alert was
about leaving Honolulu the Go em
inent was notified that they would
willingly take anything for them to
this place ; but still the foreign mail
for Hilo was detained in Honolulu,
and we will have to wait till next
Thursday before we get it ; and now
it has been lying in the Post Oflice
there for about a week. This is not
as it ought to be. And we would
call the Postmaster-General's atten
tion to it.

house of the Prussian Diet, Feb.
23d, the Chancellor said, he regard
ed it as an impossibility that the
Sainoan question should have the
effect of interrupting the friendly
relations between Germany and
America which had existed for a
century. The geographical situa
tion of Samoa and the imperfection
of telegraphic communication ten
dered it impossible for him to be
responsible lor all the acts of Ger
man agents in the Pacific, but the
parties in dispute were animated by
the best spii it, and no doubt Ger
many's commercial interests would
not materially suffer.
