The Kahuku Ranch which was
purchased a short time ago for
S27,000 by Col. Sam Norris is again
in the market. The Colonel's rea
son for wishing to dispose of it is
that lie cannot stand the nights there ;
it is too cold for him. The climate
during days is all that he could wish,
and the scenery cannot be beaten.
THE BRYANT LIBEL CASE.
At 10 o'clock this morning, Mr.
Justice Preston heard arguments in
the libel case of the Hawaiian Gov

Attorney-General Ashford argued
for the Government, and Neumann
for the bark. The Court took time
to consider until 10 o'clock to-morrow
morning, when a decision will
be rendered, if not earlier.
The schooner Ada C. Owen, be

of her being saved.

THE SECRET CONCLAVE.
The Conclave met on its Oth sede
runt, the 25th day of the 12th moon,
and the greater number of members
General Quartetto presided, and
tho officers wcro all in their places.
Tho General called tho meeting to
order and remarked that he "wished
this to bo a kind of red-letter meet
ing. The former scderunts had
been of such a turbulent and unplea
sant character that n change would
be grateful, and tend to bettor fel
lowship among tho members. To
open the proceedings he called on
Capt. Hubnkkuk Chowder for a
Capt. Chowder "regretted that
his voice wan't wuth a cent; but he
alius reckoned to 'bligo when he
kyood. He was nn Amirikin of the
old skyool, and he b'lieved that
Amirikius had bin God's chosen
people sence tho Jews skedaddled
from Palestine. Whichever way
t'was, he guessed Amurikay kyood
whip the wurld if she'd a mind to,
and the Germans into fiio bargain
He would now give a stave ho learn
ed at Cape Cod jest before he kyuui
round the Horn :
A bobolink sot on a top fence rail,
And a loon near tho fence wnr alallln ;
Then came a coon that hadn't got a
And the three sot a-yarniu and
"That song, Mr. President," said
Capt. Chowder, "represents a mect-
m' of the lower animals, lou will
perceive that the song does not re
port their conversation bekasc they
spoke a furrin language which has
not yet bin dictinnarylied." With
tlicso highly instructive remarks
Capt. Chowder "sot dyown."
The President now came to the
conclusion that singing through a
meeting would not do, and he called
on the Rev. A. Whangbuster for a
few remaiks; an order which that
gentleman complied with as follows :
"Mr. President and fellow mem
bers of the Calathumpian Party I
appreciate very highly the remarks
of Capt. Chowder, they have a thor
ough New England ring about them ;
while his song brings back old me
mories never to bo forgotten Well
do I remember the bobolink and its
melodious song. It was the first of
our spring warblers; and before the
budsbad burst into leaf, he might
be seen perched upon an apple tree
heralding the fast approaching
spring in his clear and energetic
notes. The loon lm also its asso
ciations of whimsical variety, and
the hunting of the coon by night was
a pastime which all must remember
with pleasure. Wc are now met as
of old from the "piney" woods of
New England, from the halls of
learning in the hub of the universe,
and from the stormy regions around
Cape Cod." ('Blatherskite!' shout
ed Dick Blunt, 'tell us something
about the policy of the govern
ment ') Rev. Whangbuster resum
ed with the remark that "he was not
the government, nor a member of
that- honorable body ; and he was
not aware of their policy, or whether
they had any policy."
"You have just hit the nail on
the head this time by chance," said
Dick Blunt, "the government has
no policy, except to hold their bil
lets. The men now in the Cabinet
never had any policy since they
were placed into power, and it so
happens that th-y are not responsi
ble to anybody. I challenge the
world to produce such a parcel of
governing incapables. Thej' do not
take the people into tlieirconfider.ee
like what other governments do.
Their wholo modus operandi is se
cret, silent and suspicious. It is a
lawyer's government self predom
inates, and a beclouding of execu
tive action is all that is publicly vis
ible. No reforms are in progress ;
and the ciies of the several districts
for improvements that governments
are supposed to supply, arc passed
in silence and unheeded. Why do
not these gentlemen of the Cabinet
cither make friends of the public or
resign? Even in our Calathumpian
Party there is good material for
Cabinet ministers; but, if there is
better outside, 1 can sec uo harm in
a coalition. One thing, however, is
certain, viz. : that the present in
cumbents in the ministerial offices
are worn out in popularity; and
have certainly, in their present ca
pacity, survived their usefulness
both to tlieii own party and to tho
clamoring public outside. Thoy
have served their time ; and should
retire while they can do bo with
some shadow of honor, which would
have been less tarnished had they
resigned sixmontliB ago."
Vice-President Stiaugeways stat
ed that he " had several
times adverted in the "Toot
ing Rag" of which he had tho honor
to bo, editor, to the readiness of thp
government to undertake reforms of
all kinds especially the sale of
rocks and worthless lands in small
doses, the leasing of other areas,
tho making of roads to the tops of
eminences whore nobody lived, and
various similar reforms" So far as
the resignation of the ministry is
concerned, it will bo tiino enough
for them to resign their portfolios
when they cannot secure a majority
of tho Legislature to aid them in
passing enactments required for the
government service. It must bo
borne in mind that the Whereabout
Islands are not expected to have
progressive legislation. These isl
ands ure preeminently a country for
old fogies, wealthy do-nothings, and
people who put ou style, The man
of enterprise and skill, tho rustler,
and the patriot are all unsuitable to
our volcanic soil, and cannot be
mado welcomo to these shores. Un
der such circumstances he claimed
that the present government is the
best that could bo chosen, and he
trusted there will be no change dur
iug tho present generation."
Angus McTavish said that ho was
"no man gicn tac cheonges; but ho
cudna swallay tho nuld fogy system
althegcther. He thocht there micht
nye be some improvement made, as
it was a gruesomo sicht to be for
ever lookin' at the same faces, the
same rocky and bleak hills, an' nae
Job Periwinkle and Jim Tintrum
pet both believed In changes.
Dr. Dryhash said that all nature
wai subject to change, and that
change is continually going on every
where and in all the elements of our
globe. For himself ho liked a change
of diet, a change of air, and a chango
Dick Blunt thought a "change
of editors in the sanctum
of the "Tooting Rag" could
do no harm, and the chango of
government would come in the natu
ral turn of events. It is now near
the chango of nioon, and we may
look out for developments in the
office of the Tooting Rag.
Capt. Chowder said he could not
get along without a change of wind
at times, although there was little
change of scenery on salt water. Ho
believed, however, in a strong auto
crat kind of government, tho same
as he had aboard his ship. When
he shipped a German or English
sailor he alius whipped the mistiness
out of him, befoio lie could get him
a really good man ; but he alius
made him what he wanted in the
end they were all subject to
Rev. A. Whangbuster was "very
glad at the change which had taken
place in this meeting. It was so
much more pleasant than the last
two or three meoiings; and he
thought, as nothing of a vcrj' im
portant nature is to come up at this
sederunt, it might bo as well to pass
the remainder of the timo in the so
cial harmony of song. He would
give the first:
There's evil in speaking and think
ing, Evil in ranting and roaring;
There's evil in scowling and winking,
Evil in groaning and snoring.
The actions of men arc all sinful,
And life ib a burden of soiiow;
'Elixir of life' is when ginfull,
Remorse iB tho payment to-morrow."
Mr. Angus McTavish "thocht the
recverent gentleman's song vera
true, but no vera bounie. lie wad
try ane himself, although he cudna
say he had ony voice or tune tae
brag o' :
Our liberty floats in the air,
Its f-oondb uio beard in tho wind;
Ilka adult .mil child has a sharo
That pei monies body and mind.
Tho iirrit inspiration wo draw,
Is for fiecdom and liberty's cause,
An' liberty floats o'er us a'
Gif wo only wad study laws."
The Rev. Dr. Dryhash thought
that song was more of an American
inspiration than European, although
ho had heard of Wallace and Tell ;
but at the same time lie had heard
of Rob Roy being a horse thief, and
what business had he witli liberty.
"Shut up, you old thumpthe
bibic," shouted Dick Blunt. "Mr.
McTavish did his best and there is
no reason for insulting his country
in that manner. You should have
more respect for your own cloth
than utter such talk. I will volun
teer a song and see how that will

Editor and Vice - President
Straugeways had been working him
self into an angry mocd during the
singing of Dick lilunl's song; and,
when it was finished, his passion
found vent as follows: "This is
what might bo called a metiical slur
on our respected government. ("I
thoughtthat wotildfetch him, "shout
ed Dick,ubut he kail better lake caro
how lie alludes to inn.") Strange?
ways resumed by asking the protec
tion of the chair, and stated that ho
was "only staudlng up lu dofenso of
his employers. Such songs he con
sidered treason ; although in other
countries more (latitude, in this res
pect might bo allowed with safety.
These Islands are ruled by nn auto
crat government; and, as such,
they cannot permit their prerogative
to be assailed or questioned by
slurs or inuendocs."
Angus McTavish wanted to know
"whether there is a king on these
islands; and, if so, whether it is the
intention o' the government tao
usurp his luegeetimato authority?"
This question seemed to bo a pa-
1 ser, ami quite vtulookeu for, and 9,
considerable timo was devoted to
thought. Tho President finally re
plied to Mr. McTavish evasively,
and said that he would "think over
the matter and lot the Scotchman
know when convenience suited. In
the meantimo he would close tho
meeting, and call upon Rev. Whaug
bustcr for tho usual closing ode."
Rev. A. Whangbuiter always
ready for Hub duty, gave voico as
