TAVERNIER'S LAST PAINTING.
Mr. J. J. Williams has in his
possession a picture of the volcano,
very last one painted by Jules
Tavernier. It is 12x18 and is en
closed in a very handsome frame.
The painting is one of Tavernier's
best, a gem in every respect. Mr.
"Williams offers this picture for sale,
and from the fact that it is the last
work of the dead artist, it should
not remain unsold very long. It
can be seen at the photographic gal
lery, Fort street.
GAS IN A WELL.
If the present indications do not
deceive him, the gas that flows up
in the well on the site of Claus
Spreckels refinery at Reed-street
wharf, Philadelphia, is natural gas.
If it is Sprockets has struck a gold
mine, for it would run his refinery
for him without other cost for fuel
and earn him 82,000 a day or so.
He is very much excited about the
find made by his workmen. No ex
perts have been consulted, but the
work of digging will be pushed
At the residence of Mr. Chas. B.
Wilson, Kulaokahua plains, may bo
seen a lime tree covered with fruit.
Some time back Mr. Wilson receiv
ed a few cuttings from a friend liv
ing at Butaritari, which he placed
in the ground. The fruit, unlike
tho ordinary lime, is seedless, the
blossom resembling the flower of
the fuachia. This tree, or hush, is
only sixteen months old and is now
in its first bearing, nnd can he easily
raised from slips. One of the fruit
is on exhibition in the window of
the Hawaiian News Company, Mer
chant street. No doubt after the
first bearing Mr. Wilson will bo
happy to distribute a few cuttings
among his friends.
After several interruptions, occa
sioned by necessary changes, the
toboggan is now completed and run
ning to the fullest satisfaction of
Mr. Sherwood. The descent from
the top to the bottom of the slide is
now accomplished "in nearly one
third of the time heretofore made,
and at the trial yesterday tho dis
tance trayersed on the water after
leaving the chute was fully 200
yards, Quito a number of people
witnessed the trial and were in
jnenBely pleased, wjth the results.
!fwo large parties have arranged (or

tHfi JURY SYSTEM,-
(Provi tho llilo Jiecord, May Hi.)
Whether tho system of jury trials
should, or should not, be preserved,
has, and is now exercising the minds
of. some of our best thinkers. On
this scoic, we at this time shall at
tempt no discussion. What wo have
to do with, is tho thing as wa now
have it. By our Constitution and
Statutes, wc have the guarantee of
jury trial, and it is with that wc arc
now dealing. By Statute the Clerks
of the several Circuits, "in conceit
with a Judge of some Court of Hc
cord, shall prepare, semi-annually,
a list of the names of fifty Hawai
ians, who, in their opinion, are (It to
servo as jurors. From which num
ber,, the Clerks shall draw a panel
of 2 1 jurors, to serve at the terms
of the Circuit Courts." But in the
Circuit Courts, no foreign jury is
drawn in that manner ; but, if the
presiding Judcc Bhall find it neces
sary to have a foreign jury, ho shall
summon one from among the resi
dents of the District. This was
done on account of the fact, that,
at the time of making the law, for
eign cases were very rare. Now
this is all changed, and the foreign
cases on our calendars are far
in excess of the Hawaiian ones. A
Judge, however fair-minded and un
biased he may feci himself to be,
should not be thconc to draw a
panel of jurors to try any case to
be heard before himself. Thus: a
Judge who may believe in total pro
hibition would be very apt to draw,
as nearly as possible, a panel of
jurors to try a liquor case, who felt
in the same way. Whereas, we be
lieve that fairness would say, they
ought to be drawn from amongst
those who were not total prohibi
tionists, but who did believe that
intemperance was an evil. We would
not put an habitual drunkaid on the
panel to try "such a case, but we
would not have a picked jury to try
it. So wc say that the lime has now
come, when the foreign juries in our
Circuit Courts should not be sum
moned by the Court, as at present,
but in some other way. We do not
believe that the present method of
drawing juries is the right one.
Every man if physically able to do
jury duty, and who by our Statute
is liable to do it, should be called.
As it now is, the old jury list is
called yaar after year, and the same
men, term after term, are called to
serve. This is not fair. We think
that it would be a fairer method, to
have the Assessor of the District file
each year with the Clerk of the
Court of his District, a full list of
all those men in that District liable
to do jury duty. From that number
a jury might be impaneled, 100
names being taken in order there
from, thus giving every man a
chance to serve or not. There ought
not to be any favoritism shown in
the drawing of juries. In order to
lessen the expense of keeping so
many jurors in attendance for so
long a time, it would he no difllcult
matter to notify them 21 hours in
advance, of when their services
might be needed. We hope that
something may be done in this mat
ter at the next Session of the Legis
lature. In this connection, we will
say that we hear all those jurors
who were summoned to appear at
the Court this Term, outside of the
regular panel, are not allowed any
thing for their attendance, except
those who happened to be drawn.
Wc hardly think it is so, but if it is
true every man so summoned, if he
refused to appear, is by law liable
to a fine of 8 100. Now why should
not the juror, if liable for non-attendance,
be able to claim his fee,
if ho does attend? We think it a
poor rule which will not work both
Ibid, May 28.)
We are glad to see in the last
week's issue of the Gazette, that
that paper had also taken up the
matter of our present jury system,
and although not exactly in the lino
which we spoke of it in our last is
sue, still it was to the same matter.
The present method of drawing our
juries needs a radical change, and
we hope that it will be made at the
next session of the Legislature.
What the Gazette says about ex
emptions is true. Such exemptions
as can be made by law ought to be
made in that way, leaving the ex
traordinary exemptions to ho made
by the several courts. During the
last term of tho Court sitting here,
we know of instances where the
drawing of one person would have
closed the storo of that individual.
In llilo, it is not always an easy
matter to get somo one to attend to
your busiucss while you may bo en
gaged on jury duty. Such persons,
we think, ought to be exempt.
Again, on plantations, it is not just
the thing to daur on ft jury tho en
gincer or the sugar boiler, just at
tho time when it is their busiest
soason, Telegraph operator!, school
masters, physioians nnd all Govern
ment ofllcers, ought by law to be ex
empt. We aro glad to seo that
others ore moving In tho matter,
and hope that Its importance may
be felt by tho next Legislature.

UAWAIIAH i-VAHOLLICAL ASSUGI

Churches, and delegates from the
island associations, began its annual
session in Kaumakapiti Chinch,

kucwa was chosen modcraUr. He
was formerly a missionary in the
Marshall Islands, and is now pastor

long and warm discussion at the
close of this morning's session about
the management of the Bishop
Home for leper children in the ex
clusive interests of the Romish
Church. It was voted to lay the
facts beforo the Board of Health
and ask that all interference with
the religious preferences' of tho chil
dren should be strictly forbidden by
the Board, A committee was ap
pointed to secure five thousand dol
lars to put up a new building, and
arrange for its management by other
than Catholic priests.
The closing exercises of the Ka
waiahao Female Seminary com
menced at two o'clock this afternoon
in the large schoolroom of the insti
tution. The interior of the room
was quite elaborately decorated with
flowers and evergreens. The word
"Aloha," the letters of greenery,
was seen in a very conspicuous
place. At the back of the platform
hung an oil painting of Father Rice,
which was surrounded by most
beautiful fern laaves. The columns
were all twined with evergreens.
Those in attendance were warmly
welcomed by the staff of the semi
nary. Among those present were
noticed, Robert Louis Stevenson,
Revs. Dr. E. G. Beckwith, W. B.
Oleson, S. E. Bishop and Oliver 1
Emerson, Mrs. J. T. Waterhouse,
Mrs. P. C. Jones, Mrs. Dr. J. M.

of nntive pastors and parents and

Punctually at two o'clock the pu
pils marched into the schoolroom
and took their scats. They were all
dressed in white and looked exceed
ingly neat. The literary portion of
the exercises were in charge of Miss
Pepoon, and the musical under Miss
Patch's direction. The programme
opened with a chorus, "The heavens
arc telling," nicely sung by the
whole school. Rev. Dr. Beckwith
then offered up prayer. The pro
gramme contains no less than twenty
one numbers incIudingrecitations,es
says, piano solos and duets, and
gymnastics, and will last until late
in the afternoon.
