gal ding the development of trade
between those countiics including
the establishment of a fast steamship

line to be extinguished by this
competition in view of the
growing trade it is piomoting.
The probability is that the Canadian
line will make business for itself.

of the large vessels to be employed.
Kim on Uuu.ktin: In your Issue

"Maui News," appears the follow
ing: "Strong doubts arc expressed
whether Mr. Noble knew anything
about the opium that came to his

most nmbiguous and can be con
strued to mean that many think that
I knew all about that opium, or the
opposite. What construction "Au

but come to the point and be ex

what he means. I may then be
able to understand him myself, and
by so doing know how to deal with

mentioned, was received some days

Lately Mr. Foster, a member of the
Dominion Cabinet, married a Mrs.
Chisholm, well-known as a member
of the American galaxy of lady ad

been divorced from her first hus

"hail Columbia" from many of the
papers for his mairiagc, and he is
going to begin a general campaign
tor libel against his assailants.. The
Minister it appears had taken care
to know what he was about, having
consulted his colleague the Minister
of Justice before taking the matii

point of law has been emphasized
by the opinions of the best author

SPEAKING BY THE BOOK.
Editor Bum.ktix: James Bryce,
in his very insttuctho work,
It appears the engraver was set
to work on illustrations of the scene
of the insurrection for the Gazette
nearly a year before that event oc
purred. At'Ieast, its views of the
Palace and the Government build
ing were presented in the Pa
radise of the Pacific that length of
time back. There is nothing not
commendable in this wonderful
foresight of enterprise, but the
Gazette's daily paper promised spe
cial engravings for this week's issue.
It did this as a setoff to the Bulle
tin's anticipation of the Gazette
with fieshcr and much better en
gravings, but even this would have
been meritorious had there been any
intention of making good the promise.
The owner of the Akamai need
not be afraid of the "publisher of a
newspaper," so far aa the Bui.i.ktim
is concerned, engaging him in an
"uphill fight." Had he addiessed
his complaint to this paper, the an
tidote would have gone straight to
where the poison circulated. Our
original informant could not recol
lect the name of what he termed "a
little steamer," and the paragraph
did not say the vessel touched at
Kapaa or Kealia. The name of the
steamer was confidently given by
another informant. Au excited
horseman carried the news at full
galop to the Kealia store, and the
burden of his report was fearful
carnage In"IIonoiulu. Mr. Dower's
weeping charge of "incorrect re-

tells us: "A singular system may
be found in the piescnt Constitution
or the Hawaiian Islands, promulgat
ed 7th July, 1887 it keeps the Cab
inet out of the Legislature."
lie perhaps has formed his idea
fiom the terms of the Constitution
itself from Art. 20: "The supreme
power is divided into the Executive,
Legislative and Judicial ; these shall
always be preserved distinct;" and
Ait. 44: "The Legislatuic shall
consist of the Nobles and represen
tatives sitting together." .
The force of a compact, contract
or constitution is in the application
thereof. Mr. Bryce overlooks the
fact that there is a world between
himself and us that he iB our anti-
pode. Standing on his head, it
would point the same way ours do.
In that position, by leading that
Constitution held upside down,
backwards, he would arrive at an
apptoximation of our practice. By
an attentive perusal of the Bulle
tin's repoits of Parliament last ses
sions, he would have known that
the Cabinet, or rather that two of
its members, usurped a very laige
part and undue control of commit
tee work and debate, while the most
they had the shadow of a right to
claim is a seat ex-of)leio with a right
to vote limited. Ho might have
known that they claimed the right
to the King's veto and were encour
aged in this by a subservient party
in the house and one of livo judges.
He would have learned that one of
the Cabinet used as an argument
against a pioposed measure that if it
were passed "he would not obey
it." lint then this is only chaiac
teristic of one who, as advocate at
the bar, would dictate to the bench
an instant decision, or a peremptory
He would he most of all surprised
to icalizc that while no Government
olllccr or employee, and no con
tractor with Government can sit in
Parliament, the members of the
Cabinet sit and rule there, while
they are the only and sole executive
of the nation. These four men ap
point and have the power of ap
proval of every Government ofllcer,
every board, collector and assessor,
from Hawaii to Niihau.
Mr. Bryce says this constitution
is a rigid ohe. The "Majlc Wieath"
pleads for co-ordination. The Cab
inet is autocratic. X,
THE NEW AUSTRALIA.
The steamer Australia was out on
the bay of San Francisco for her
Trial trip on July 14th. The Aus
tralia :u rived there fiom Honolulu
on March 22d, and her owners,
prior to this time, had determined
to put her on the dock for repaus.
An examination of the vessel devel
oped the fact that she was in need of
far more extensive lepairs than were
at lb st intended. A survey of the
steamer was then made, and the
Hisdon iron Works, of San Fran
cisco, awarded the contract for
overhauling her and putting in new
machinery. She 1ms been laid up
ever since, and has undergone the
most extensive repaiis ever made to
any steamer, and is pronounced to
be in a better condition than she
The old compound engines wcie
displaced by new engines of the
triple expaiibion type. The old
boilers, which carried lo pounds of
steam, were replaced by new ones
to carry a pressure of Kit) pounds
per square iuee.
The hull of the ship was thor
oughly ovei hauled, even to now
flames and keelsons; the cost of
the entire lepairs (including hull,
machinery, electric light and refrig
erating machinery), will not f.ill be
low S2L';,000. 00." Her staterooms,
cabins, saloons ; hurricane, upper
and lower decks, and all wood work
and fittings, have been rebuilt and
remodelled. She has been furnish
ed throughout with electric incan
The result of the trial trip was
more thau satisfactory to all con
cerned, and shotrs that the Pacific
Coast is now able to do work of any
description. The Australia is now
one of the fastest ships on the Pa
cific, and the lesults of the trial tiip
show that she will now run 17 miles
per hour on a consumption of ten
ions of coal less per day than form-
cily. The greatest credit is due
to Mr. John D. Spreckels for taking
the initiative in the adoption of the
latest improvements in machinery
his firm have demonstrated that it
pays to spend money m the right
direction. If, at any future time,
it becomes desirable to send the
Australia to the Colonies to compete
with the Canadian Pacific or White
Star steamers, the Australia will be
found to he superior to the best of
them as regards speed, economy
Among those present at the tiial
trip weie Theodore Ci amp, of the
ship-building firm of Philadelphia;
Captain C. M. Goodall, representing
the Pacific Coast Steamship Co. ;
John D. Spreckels, Adolph Spreck
els, Charles Hugg, Captain Douglas,
li. S. Moore, Captains Fieenian,
Thayer and Potter, Con O'Connor,
George Fritch and about 150 others.
A biass band accompanied the
steamer and discoursed music
throughout the trip.
Chief Engineer Niinian states that
on the voyage down from San Fran
cisco, the machinery woiked admir
ably and beyond all possible expec
tations for the first trip, the coal
consumption did not exceed !!0 tons
per day, while with the old machin
ery the average was hhout 48 tons.
The successful operation of tho en
gines and boilers certainly rctlects
great credit on the builders.
The Hisdon Works is one of the
oldest and largest engineering es
tablishments on the Pacific Coast

in trust and cannot be used in any manner for the piotcction or profit of any new member. If the 100,000 of
