WANT HIS RESIGNATION.
The present Board of Trustees of
the Kaumakapili Church have been
desirous of obtaining the resignation
of the Rev. J. Waiamau, their pas
tor The reason for this is that
they blame him to a considerable
extent for the recent financial
troubles connected with the church,
but which have been satisfactorily
settled. Last Sunday morning the
King attended service at the Church,
and made a speech in which he stat
ed that the pastor was not to blame
in the matter, nor was he (the
King.) He had been called upon
for advice by the old board of trus
tees and had given it.
On Wednesday evening there was
a meeting of the church members,
when a proposition presented by the
church deacons from the Board of
Trustees, calling for tho resignation
of the pastor, was rejected by a vote
of 41 to 2G. There is now some
talk among the members of the
church to elect a new Board of

The weather was so very rough
that tho steamer did not arrive

someone telephoned into town that

There was no necessity for send

Williams, the photographer, has
on exhibition in his art gallery, a
new study of the Volcano from
the brush of Jules Tavernier. The
painting represents the New Lake
before the collapse of 1887, viewed
from a point about 100 yards below
the main floor of the crater, showing
Ilalemaumau on the right. It is an
early morning view, just between
the setting of the moon, and the
rising of the sun. A mild delicious
tint pervades the surroundings,
softening the lurid glare of the
flames, and creating an exceedingly
wierdlike and beautiful effect. To
the left is the bluff christened by
the artist "El Capitan" because of
its close resemblance to the celebrated
bluff of that name in the Yoscmite
Valley. This new creation, for its
delicacy of outline, correctness of
perspective and remarkable finish, is
certainly the finest view of the Vol
cano that has yet come from the
brush of that gifted artist. Art
lovers should avail themselves of the
opportunity to Yiew this truly artis
HILO AND ITS NEEDS.
The town of Ililo has one of the
finest situations for the building up
of a city there can be found on these
islands. A line natural harbor, shel
tered from all, except the north
winds. The finest of all water, suf
ficient, not only for the supply of a
large population for drinking and
household purposes, but also for an
unlimited supply of water-power for
the driving of machinery. A wide
and extensive tract of good agricul
tural land at its back. A heavy
forest of koa, ohia, and other woods,
suitable for lumber, railroad ties,
fence posts, and fine cabinet work,
rthe like of which is not to be found
on any other island of the group, A
well drained and well watered situa
tion. Fanned during the day with
a gentle trade breeze off the sea,and
during the night with the cold air
direct from tho snows of Mauna
Kca, its climate is unsurpassed by
any in the world. Malarial fevers
aro almost unknown, and what arc
occasionally found arc of a very
mild type Its situation and cli
mate make it eneof Nature's health
resorts, Thus much for soino of our
Now, what do we want to make
Ililo what it ought to be? We will
first note what we consider tho gen
eral Government ought to do for
this place, and that, too, as soon as
it is possible for that to be done.
First, our harbor needs improv
ing. As it is, we are exposed to the
northeily swell which at times makes
a lauding almost impossible even on
tho Waiukea side of the harbor, To
remedy this diUlculty it will ba
Mitt- M.t&LEffintf ttotfottfUJ., &.,, i.
necessary for tho Government to
build up a rip-rap breakwater on tho
reef. This will, without doubt, cost
a largo sum of money, and cannot
bo done at once, but year by year
the work might go on, and in time
it would be done.
A tramway from tho mainland, at
Cocoanut Island, and crossing said
island on to the outlying rocks could
be built without a great deal of ex
pense, and the rock taken over it to
where it was needed for the filling in
of the breakwater. Year by year a
few thousand dollars could be spent on
it, and before many years have pass
ed Ililo would have one of the finest
hnrbors in tho Pacific. It needs no
dredging to enable the largest ships
to enter it, the channel is both wide
and deep, and with our ordinary
winds easy of entrance and depart
ure. Wc feel that it is a duty that
the Government owes to this island,
to commence, at least, the improve
ment of Its only harbor. So far it
has hardly spent a dollar on im
provements in our harbor. A light
houso is maintained on l'aukaa
Point, a buoy placed on the north
ern end of the reef, and that is
Second, we need, and the Govern
ment ought to put up for us a wharf,
or wharves on the Waiakca side,
where large ships could lie and dis
charge or take on freight. There is
deep enough water within a few feet
of the shore on that side for our
largest steamers to come alongside
of a wharf. All freight now arriv
ing at our port has to be "lighter
ed" ashore at considerable expense.
This fact alone tends to prevent
vessels coming into our port. Our
foreign trade lias increased rapidly
during the past few years, and we
wish to be able to say to the vessels,
"Come here, and we will give you
quick dispatch," which wc cannot
do now, as we have no suitable
wharf accommodations, and is a
thing that we must ask for at the
We might go on to speak of the
wator supply necessary for our town,
but as an appropriation has been
made for water works for us even
though it is insullicient, yet we will
not say anything about it at pre
sent. These are sonic of the needs
of Ililo, which we think ought to be
supplied by the general Government.
In some future issue we will try and
enumerate some of the needs which
we must supply ourselves.
THE DEBATINC CLUB.
A full to overflowing house of the
Debating Club listened to the de
bate on "Marriage is not a failure,"
last night. The two oratorical
giants who led the two sides of the
debate were Mr. Laffcrty and Mr.
Liming. The first named gentle
man vindicated the proposition, go
ing right back to Buddha, Confu
cius, and others of his venerable
progenitors, for support. His op
ponent, not having the same respect
for those antique gentlemen, argued
from visible and undeniable facts on
the negative side of the proposition.
The other speeches were mostly in
support of Mr. Lafferty's position,
viz., that marriage is not a failure.
Mr. Luning stood almost alone, two
members only standing up in his
defence ; but he showed his ability
to maintain the fight against the big
odds opposed to him. His opening
address took the "cake"fr argumen
tativeness, and his closing speech
demolishedithe entire bakery by an
oratorical broadside. One fact was
certainly made evident, that "Orni
thorynchus" is not only "a bird with
a bill" he has a tongue also.
It may be here said for general
information, that a man does not
necessarily argue according to his
convictions in the Debating Club.
Members often speak against their
own views, for tho sake of discus
sion. Our Sunday laws was the subject
announced for the next debate, the
precise proposition being that the
Sunday laws should be repealed.
Mr. A. Vogel and Mr. P. L. Har
rington were appointed leaders.

Tho New York Life issues a greater variety of policies than any other
life company, thereby adapting its contracts to the largest number of people.
It has lately perfected a Mortuary Dividend system, under which many of
its policies arc issued with guaranteed return of all premiums paid, in addi
tion to tho faco of the policy, in case of death during a specified period.
The returns on the New York Life's Tontine Policies that have matured
have been larger than those of any other company, comparison being made
between policies taken at same age and premium rate, and running tluough
the same period of time.
Tho policies of the New York Life, as now issued, are notably frco from
restrictions as to occupation, residence and travel, and claims arc paid upon
receipt and approval by the Company of satisfactory proofs of death.
In connection with those statements of tho principles, customs and suc
cess of the New York Life, wc give herewith figure showing the average
yearly business done during five periods covering the Company's entiro his
