COMMITTED FOR TRIAL.
The preliminary examination of
Ailau, charged with the. murder of
Louis Johnson, at Waialua, on De
cember 30, 1888, was concluded in
the Police Court this morning. No
evidence was offered for the defense
and the prisoner was committed for
trial at the April Term of the Su

A petition has been circulated for
signatures asking the appointment
of Commodore John Irwin, U. S.N.,
39 Commandant of the Mare Island
ine ucrmau iimiperor lias ap
pointed Vice-Admiral Baron von der
Goltz to be Admiral in command,
and commissioned him to act for the
present as Chief of the Ad'iiira'ty.
He has the reputation of being one
of the most popular ollicer in the
navy, which is evidenced by the un
usual rapidity of his promotion.
Admiral Porter is a linn believer
in sailois of the old school. lie
says: "The stiuty of science hud
b.'tter be left to the Naval Acad
c ny, where, perhaps seamanship
the life of the mivj- may now be
considered of equal importance.
Seamen can only be made by bat
tling with the elements. In the
war 1812, when our navy did such
brilliant service, against the most
powerful of navies, it was because
we could draw upon the best sailors
in the world, our E.istern fishermen.
. In that school of sei.mciiship were
found men who could not only man
ago sails and spars, but were the
best gunners of their time. I doubt
if, with all our modern science, we
have better gunners at this day."
On February 13 last, the TJ. S.
gunboat "Yorktown" made a suc
cessful trial trip of over four hours,
by running out under a heavy
breeze, and with a considerable sea.
She made 1G.7- to 17.2 knots. Shu
would at that rate of speed bo able
to overtake 95 per cent of the war-
. ships now afloat.
i Two monster Russian guns arc to

powder charge weighs 270 pounds,
and the range is l.'i miles. Two

AH OMNIBUS CAPSIZED.
Yesterday afternoon a parly of
ladies and gentlemen went to the
Pali, in one of the Pantheon busses
drawn by six horses, Dick Davis
handling' the reins. Tney arrived
theic bafely and spent a short time
viewing the seeneiy. Shoitly after
nine o'clock the party started for
home. On coming down the hill
just above the half way house with
the brakes on, the brake blocks
turned, the result being that the bus
pushed the horses along, the latter
swerved and the tins was turned
over on the Waikiki side of the road.
Fortunately tho horses remained
perfectly quiet, One of the ladies
had a nai row escape as she was
thrown under the bus. She was
speedily rescued. The most of the
party were rather badly shaken up,
hut received no serious injuiies.
Carriages were telephoned for and
the party returned to town.
One of the most beautiful churches
in the Hawaiian Islands was dedi
cated at Makawao on Sunday, the
10th inst. The services were con
ducted by the Revs. Thomas Gulick,
Sereno Bishop and W. B. Oleson,
and were most interesting. Tho
church edilicc is situated on the site
of the Hon. II. P. Baldwin's old
mill, where some years ago he lost
his arm. It commands one oi the
most beautiful sights to be seen on
on that part of the island, Stretch
ing all directions are luxuriant cane
fields, dotted hero and there with
laborers' houses that give tho placo
an air of thrift and enterprise, while
at the back looms up the grand old
mountain of JIaleakala.
The church fully equipped for
worship, is the gift (to the Makawao
district) of Hon. II. P. Baldwin,
and will stand as a lasting monu
ment to that gentleman's philun
thiophy. Tiio congregation assembled on
the occabion of the dedication, were
unanimous in their praiso of the
neat and elegant manner in which
the church has been built and fur
nished, and the favorable auspices
under which the church has opened,
foretell its future usefulness. N.
THE MARRIAC OF ft AR KIN
Thero is a widespread Idea Uiat
consanguineous unions pioituce
oilller defective offspring or none at
nil. When a u.arriage between
cousins is spoken ol, surdity or a
deal-mute, idloi, or dcfoinied' pio
geny is predicted, and examples arc
always at hand to cito in mippoit of
the piophecy. Does this opinion
rest upon positive and well authen
ticated facts, or is it uriom-otis?
This is a question thai was exninin
ed a few years ago by Mr. G. H.
Darwin, who, altera pi olouud study
of the subject, came to the conclu
sion that, in the present state of
science, there is nothing to justify
the common prejudice-that exists
against thu marriage of near kin.
More recently the subject has been
further examined by Mr. A. II.
Until, who has just published an
exhaustive work upon it. in which
he anives at the same conclusions
that Mr. Darwin did. Mr. Iluth
think that consanguinity of itself
plays no paiticular tole in the union
ol individuals of the same stock. In
the descendants it increases the ten
dencies common to the tv,o progen
itors. By reason ot their relation
ship, the closer this is and tho cler
the relationship of the ancestors, the
greater is the tendency of the des
cendants to exhibit the same dispo
sitions. If those are good, consan
guineous unions will be advanta
geous, in that they will fortify and
intensify them. If, on the contrary,
they are bad, such unions should be
avoided, in order to prevent :i re
enforcement of unfavourable ten
dencies, which should be suppress
ed. But the case is identical where
it is a question of inn elated persons.
No reasonable person would urge
two neuropatio individuals of differ
ent family to unite, because he
knows that the neurosis lias every
chance to become intense in the de
scendants. On the contrary, a union
between two consanguineous indi
viduals, equally healthy and well
favoured, ought to be encouraged.
What may be urged against mar
riages of near kin is the facility with
which unfavourable tendencies arc
transmitted, and the relative rarity
ot the circumstances in which such
marriages can really be Advised.
But, this admitted and explained,
consanguinity of itself presents no
inconvenience, especially if we con
sider how remote, by n-ason of the
existing laws upon marriage, is the
degree of consanguinity between in
dividuals capable of uniting legiti
mately. Upon the whole, consan
guinity accumulates and intensifies
tendencies. If these arc bad, the
marriage of near kin should be
avoided ; if good, it may be favour
ed. But as, unfortunately, the un
favourable tendencies are more eas
ily and frequently transmitted, be
cause they are tho ones that arc es
tablished with the most facility,
tin-re is ofteucr more reason lor
avoiding than seeking such unions.
Upon the whole, Mr. Huth concludes
that the accusations directed against
marriages of near kin arc not justi
fied in the present slate of science.
A fearful storm has been raging
