Attention is called to a selection
from the San Jose Mercury, which
attributes remarkable properties to
leaves of the eucalyptus. This tree,
according to that if true, should be
more valuable to us than a new ice
Owing to crowded space the lat
ter part of Mr. Porter's lecture was
very much condensed in our report.
In this way an interesting local point
was overlooked. Mr. Porter said he
noticed that where water was ob
tained in these islands, vegetation
was equally luxuriant with that of
Java. This is good backing for the
advocates of the most liberal policy
of irrigation in this country.
The resolution of the Hawaiian
Yachting and KowiDg Association to
issue a suitable trophy to be sailed
for annually on the Fourth of July
is a doubly appropriate action. It
fitly signalizes the several noble ad
ditions made this year to our fleet of
yachts, one of the very finest of
which has been locally built. Also,
it is calculated to concentrate and
intensify the present happily attained
interest in yachting, and carry it
forward with increasing volume in
perpetuity. Comparatively, the Ha
waiian cup will be to our yachtsmen
what the America cup has been to
those of America and Great Britain
a thing of beauty and perpetual
desire drawing out the best boat
building and boat sailing science of
A FOREIGN PARALLEL.
The article from Harper's Weekly
elsewhere reprinted gives some
striking instances of the would-be
wise predictions of failure for great
public improvements. This country
could Bupply an almost equally in
teresting series of the same sort from
the vaticinations of people wise only
in their, own conceits when treating
of enterprises with tbe bases of
which they have not taken the
trouble to become acquainted. It
is well that promoteratof local im
provements sometimes have an op
portunity of gaining the opinion of
experienced men upon their schemes,
else they would have hard work to
stand up under the Bhowers of criti
cism from Vh . innumtntbU utuu
minds of their own country. When
Mr. Dillingham was on the Pacific
Coast he had the Rood fortuno to
meet Mr. Wolcott, Seoretary of the
Southern Pacific Railway Company,
who expressed complete satisfaction
with the details of tbe Oahu Hall
way scheme, predicting certain suc
cess for it. He also said he should
be glad to lay down a system of ca
ble cars in Honolulu, but had to be
informed that he was too late for
striking that bonanza. Hon. C. A.
Goodchapc, Commissioner of Kail
roads for New South Wales, and
Mr. R. Speight, Chairman of Rail
ways in Victorin.with whom Mr. Dil
lingham traveled on liii return trip,
were also unequivocal in endorsing
the Oahu Railway as a practical bu
siness enterprise. Of course all the
elements of success are liable in bad
bands to be worked only for failure,
but in this case there is reason to
believe that there will be no such
wrecking of favorable prospects.
EniToit Bulletin: Yet another
serious case of injury, needing the
carf of a skilled medical man, has
occurred at this place and no doctor
nearer than fifteen miles, and he not
able to travel to this end of the dis
trict and the injured man not able
to travel to Waiohinu unless at the
risk of further injury.
Having no physician in tho dis
trict, that is able to travel, is a
serious matter to 'all of us residents
here; in case of serious illness or
accident, we have no medical help.
1 am told that the Board of Health
have had two applicants for the
Kau district, but that tho two gen
tlemen applying are friends and
cannot agree between themselves as
to which shall take it, the Board
meanwhile patiently waiting their
decision. This may be business but
I should not call it so. I cannot
but think that if proper steps had
been taken we should ere this have
been supplied with a doctor, but
perhaps constituted as the present
board is, nothing better should be
The President of the Board of
Health was in this district some
three weeks or so ago. It would
hardly have been out of his pro
vince to have visited this part of it,
in which case he might have assisted
the poor Portuguese woman who is
suffering fiom a broken arm, and
seen to other cases that require at
tention. I have learned that Dr. Oliver
has been promised the pay appro
priated for a Government physician
at Kau, until such time as a physician
is appointed, tho assigned reason
for this being that he has attended a
few cases who have visited him in
Waiohinu. I have nothing but kindly
feelings and good wishes for this
gentleman, but as a taxpayer and
an advocate for honest administra
tion I protest against any such mis
appropriation. The doctor is not
performing and is not physically
able to perform the duties of Gov
ernment physician. Refokmkk.
Kau, Hawaii, June 11th.
THE EUCALYPTUS TREE.
There is a great diversity of opin
ion about the virtues and vices of
the eucalyptus tree and the policy
of permitting their propagation
among the orchards and along the
roadsides of California.
There are several varieties of the
eucalyptus and the finer of these
grow certainly into stately and beau
tiful trees. The speed with which
they mature and the amount of wood
they produce make them populnr
among people who are impatient for
shady drives and a paying invest
ment. On the other hand the injury
done by the eucalyptus tree to its
neighbors of the earth around it is
apparent to all who have observed
its growth. It is the most persistent
sucker of the soil known among
trees and within a radius of a score
of feet from the trunk of a maturing
tree hardly a shrub or tree or plant
can survive. This robber trait is
what causes its champions to desert
it after an essay of its cultivation.
An Italian scientist named Count
Luigi Forrelli has been experiment
ing with the leaves of the eucalyptus
tree with a view to ascertaining their
antiseptic qualities. He found that
water with eucalyptus leaves in it
kept fresh for as much as four
months. Meat soaked in a pan of
water in which leaves were, kept
perfectly pure and sweet for seventy-four
hours, while tho same sort
of flesh put in a plain water turned
putrescent in the same time. The
Count also discovered that strong
mutton wrapped in eucalyptus
leaves or bark lost its unpleasant
flavor in a short time and took on a
very pleasant taste from its wrap
ping. There are a great many eucalyp
tus trees in California and will al
ways be. It would not be a bad
idea to investigate further the me
dicinal and antiseptic qualities of
tho tree and make use of it in the
extraction of valuable essences and
alkaloids from its abundant foliage
and bark. San Jose Mercury.

DAILY i3tJX.LiJiaMK : HOHtXLULU, H. t,
Mr. James A. Briggs sends lo the
Tribuno a paragraph from tho Bos
ton Courier of, June 27, 1827, then
edited by Joseph T. Buckingham,
one of the ablest and most liberal
of Now England .editors. It was
but sixty-two years ago that he thus
spoke of the projected railroad from
Boston to Albany :
"Alcibiadcs, or some other great
man of antiquity, It is said, cut off
bis dog's tail that Qu.idnuncs might
not become extinct from want of
excitement. Some such motive, we
doubtneit, moved one or two of our
natural and experimental philoso
phers to get up a project for 11 rail
road fr6m Boston to Albany .-n pro
ject which everyone knows-, who
knows the simplest rule in arith
metic, to be impracticable, and- ut
an expense little less than the mar
ket value of the whole territory of
Massachusetts; and which, if prac
ticable, every person of common
sense knows would be as useless as
a railroad from Boston to the moon."
The road was built, and there i
no more prosperous road in the
Mr. Briggs, in quoting this amus
ing paragraph, adds another illus
tration to the folly of this kind of
argument from anticipation, lhe
chief objections to the adoption of
the Constitution a hundred years
ago have been shown by experience
to be unfounded, while the one point
which passed without criticism, the
system of Presidential elections,
proved to ba the most unsatisfactory
of all its provisions. In the snine
way every proposed reform is op
posed by lugubrious or whimsical
anticipations. vt lien Konully pro
posed to abolish hanging forslcaling
a pocket handkerchief, the law
officers of the crown said that the
reform would endanger the whole
criminal law of England. When
the bill abolishing the slave trade
passed the House of Lords, Lord
St. Vincent stalked out, declaring
that he washed his hands of the ruin
of the British Empire. The old
Greenwich pensioners, when they
saw a steamer upon the Thames,
protested that it was contrary to
nnture. Under Charles II. there
was a fierce opposition to street
lamps. Mr. Buckingham might
have recalled Jefferson's remark,
when New York explored the route
for a canal, that it was defensible in
theory, and was a fine project that
might be executed a century hence ;
or, still more to the pointy the sage
observation of Chancellor Living
ston in 1811, that a railroad shod
with iron to move heavy weights
four miles an hour was ingenious
and perhaps theoretically defensi
ble, but, upon the whole, the road
would not be so cheap or conveni
ent as a canal.
Our hindsight perpetually laughs
at our foresight, but we go on, and
vaticinations like these are really
regarded as arguments. But there is
another strain which in this year we
may fitly recall. As soon as the Re
volution ended, Washington made a
tour, which he describes in a letter,
through Lakes George and Champ
lain to Crown Point, then up the
Mohawk River to Fort Schuyler,
crossing over to AVood Creek, which,
emptyings into Oneida Lake, affords
a waterway to Ontario. Then he
went to the eastern branch of the
Susquehannah, and saw the Lake of
Otseo, and the portage at Canajo
liarie between that lake and the Mo
hawk River. lie made no prophecy,
but he adds that when he saw the
vast opportunities opened by nature
to this happy country, he could only
say, "Would to God we may have
wisdom enough to improve them!"
Edward Everett happily quoted this
letter at a great meeting in Boston
to promote the completion of the
subscription to build the railroad
which Mr. Buckingham eight years
before knew not only to be imprac
ticable but as useless as a railroad
to the moon, and whose stock on
the 9th of March of this year sold
at 214 to 21G a higher price than
that of any other railroad stock in
the country. Harper's Weekly.
