HIS MAJESTY'S DEPARTURE.
Several days ago it was announc
ed by tho Bulletin that Ills Majesty
the King would soon take a vacation
abroad, probably to the United
States. It is now officially deter
mined that the King will leave
Honolulu for tho Pacific Coast on
next Tuesday afternoon, at two
o'clock, bv the U. S. P. S. Charles
ton. His Majesty will proceed di
rectly to San Francisco, as tho guest
of Rear-Admiral Brown, and will bo
accompanied only by Hon. Geo. W.
Macfarlanc, II. M.'s Chamberlain.
His Majesty's visit is intended
9olclyfor recuperation and greatly
needed rest ; and while it is not to
be understood that the King is In
any way seriously ill, yet his physi
cians have advised change of climato
to the bracing and invigorating airs
of the Pacific Coast, where ho will
remain for some time. After His
Majesty has been officially received
in San Francisco he will quietly
travel in cognito about California,
perhaps extending his visit to Ore
gon and British Columbia. As the
King has lately had some trouble
with his oyes he will take advantage
of his stay in San Francisco to seek
the advice of some skillful oculist.
As far as the King's proposed
visit to Washington is concerned,
which was spoken of in the Bulle
tin lately, It Is a matter which will
be decided upon the receipt by His
Majesty of future advices from the
Hawaiian Cabinet. If it is deter
mined that His Majesty shall visit
the American Capital, ho will not re
main there more than a week or two
at most, as the main object of his
vacation is to be recreation rather
than the worries of business and the
affairs of State. During the ab
sence of His Majesty from the Ha
waiian Kingdom, Her Royal High
ness, Princess Liliuokalani, the
Heir Apparent, will act as Regent.
slvc. At the Government land sale
which took place on the 13th In
stant, lands of the upset value of
$6275 brought 823,305, after sharp
competition. Money was plenty and
the prices were the largest ever
realized for Government land in Ho
nolulu; highei, much higher, than
the late Administration and its back-
were able to lorco values to in
order to fulfill their political boast
ings. In spite of a prolonged period of
revolutionary rulo and reckless and
extravagant administration of pub
lic affairs by a clique of Reform
party politicians, the country has
held her own and under the more
favorable conditions of the present
is putting forth new energies and
will, all sincerely hope, practice new
economics, which have been already
too long ignored by the Hawaiian
planter, tho Hawaiian citizen gen

The Legislature has adjourned.
The news of the passage of theUnit
ed States Tariff Bill has startled us
for a moment and quiet reigns again.
The strain of political excitement is
happily over for the next year and
a half, and the efforts which have
from time to time been made by
nartv noliticians and newspapers to
injure us abroad have mostly failed
in their objects.
The planter as well as the mer
chant lias settled down to the reali
zation that Hawaiian interests arc
not on the decline and that our re
sources, if judiciously handled, arc
upon the threshold of a new era of
development. It is true that the
American Tariff will, for a time, be
more or less of an economical men
tor guarding our future extrava
gances, but more than this it will
While it is not wisdom to view our
future financial conditions through
a rose-colored glass, it is still unne
cessary for us to follow any longer
the course pursued by the faint
hearted on one hand and by the sel
fish on the other. Most people will
remember that as soon as the result
of the election in last February was
known, the politicians backing the
late Administration, together with
their newspaper, began lamenting
that the country would soon go to
the eternal bow-wows ; but the coun
try refused to move. Next the cry
was raised and the threat was made
that unless the derelict Thurston
Cabinet, or at least two of them,
were retained in office there would
result both economic and political
ruination ; still the simple Hawaiian
public ignored the protests of the
late Administration and turned a
deaf ear to their journalistic propho
cies. What remained of the revo
lutionary Cabinet was unrelentingly
Ured, with the rest, for safety, into
the protecting bosom of the defeat
ed Reform party.
There was but one dodge left
the decrepit, hoary-headed, political
dodge long practiced here in certain
quarters it waB declared that capi
tal would be withdrawn from invest
ment, that values would shrink from
local causes, that the middle classes
would hoard their diminishing sav
ings, and that a gonoral withdrawal
of confidence would follow. Tito
country, liowovor, lias been foolish
enough to Ignore ovun tlioso lust

LETTER FROM MR. REYNOLDS.
If there is. one thing, more deplor
able than another it is when mem
bers of an Episcopal congregation
find themselves driven througli force
of circumstances into a difference
with their Bishop. And how deeply
arc those circumstances aggravated
when they are aired in the public
press for tho special benefit of many
who cannot understand the rules
and rubrics of the Episcopal church.
Going back to 1885 ; a movement
was set on foot by sensible, think
ing men for the express puipose of
furthering the interests of the
church in Hawaii. These men were
not senseless idiots, as many of the
acts and reproaches of the Bishop
would imply, but the desire for bet
ter things was kindly and sensibly
expressed and the Bishop was even
desired to initiate such steps and to
suggest means and plans that might
seem desirable. Did he do any one
thing in a kindly way towards listen
ing to the expressed wishes of his
people? Indeed not; he ran to the
press and aired our troubles and
what was far worse created race
prejudice, a thing wicked in the ex
treme. I blame the Bishop of Honolulu
entirely for the press publicity then,
and I blame him now for the reason
that he forced the trustees of the
church into a position before the
courts of this kingdom which was
extremely unfair, unkind and un
fatherly. Will the Bishop bring the logic
he boasts of sufficiently to the front
to prove that he has not absolutely
disobeyed the spirit of the order of
Court, which ordered him to call a
meeting, by refusing to put a mo
tion pioperly moved and seconded?
I claim the Bishop has distinctly
been guilty of contempt of Court.
The spirit of the mandamus was to
compel the Bishop to call a meeting
for a specific object, which object he
well knew and by refusing to put
the motion he stands self-confessed
guilty of contempt and should be
punished in the same way that I
would. The Bishop's remarks about
usurpation are simply dodging the
question and had nothing whatever
to do with the first part of the
I have now to deal with another
phase ot this matter which has not
as yet so far as I am aware reached
the press. A large number of those
belonging to the Cathedral congre
gation laid before the Bishop their
grievances by petition. A second
petition emanating from the "Second
English speaking Congregation"was
also forwarded to the Bishop endow
ing the action of the signatories to
the first petition. The substance of
those petitions was to ask the Bishop
to "see the desirability of resigning
the superintendence of the Anglican
Mission in Hawaii."
It is needless to say that these
petitions have only been treated
with contempt and scorn. The im
portance of tho question lias simply
been dodged by asking other ques
tions and by lengthy arguments,
which have never yet mended mat
ters. Instead of facing the issue a
circular was sent to different mem
bers of the second congregation con
taining questions which 1 hope no
one btooped to answer. In seeking
to dodge the question the Bishop
beat about for a plan to set aside
the petition of the Cathedral congre
gation by taking five gentlemen into
IiIb counsels who conclude that the
greater number of the signets are
unworthy his attention. Thcso gen
tlemen impute fraud to the commit
tee who got up the petition and ulso
make out a case ( ?) to tho effect
that the "greater number" were
void of common sense.
The gist of tho greater number of
the questions seems burdened with
the erroneous responsibility resting
on the Wallop's shoulders uu to what
guarantee will hu given thut tliu

how much oach one has contributed
to this or that object is absurd on
the face of it. What right hat ho
to compare my mite with a richer
man's purse and so meto out his
judgment accordingly? Is be
preaching for my pocket or for the
benefit of my soul? This viow of
the caso could not have occurred to
him or he certainly never could have
compiled such a question. The best
answer to these questions is the fact
which cannot bo disputed, that the
second congregation is fully able to
meet all its liabilities, and is well
able to bear any responsibilities it
may take on its shoulders, and that
without assistance from England.
Can the Bishop say this much for
It seems to mo that the Bishop
would do well to take home to him
self the concluding remark in his
circular, "I solemnly warn you to
remember that for the action you
have taken, and may further take in
this matter, you will have to give
account in the Day of Judgment."
Let him remember that while one
scripture says, "Children, obey
your parents," there is another
which says, "Parents, provoke not
your children to wrath."
Apologizing for the space I have
asked at your hands,

THEO. H. DAVIES & CO.,
THE NEW HAWAIIAN OPERA.
I hear that the Opera "Kekilani,"
on the composition of which Messrs.
Sauvlet and van Middeldyk have
been engaged for some time, though
Hawaiian in spiiit and subject, is to
be presented to the public of Calk
fornia and elst-where, without hav
ing obtained any kind of recogni
tion from the public in this, its
Few people, I believe, have yet
heard the music, and read the text
of this lyric composition, and all ex
pression of opinion as to its merits
is therefore premature ; but, as Pro
fessor Sauvlet's musical talent is
well-known, and there is no reason
to think that the author of the text
is not equally competent, it is but
fair to suppose that the piece is
worth a hearing.
But, apart from considerations of
an artistic or literary nature, there
is another and more potent reason
why this production should not be
treated with indifference, namely,
that it may materially increase the
interest felt in these islands among
travelers, and thus indirectly affect
tourist travel in this direction.
Have we not asked for and ob
tained a subsidy for the "Paradise
of the Pacific," with the object of
widening its area of circulation and
making our Islands better known?
And can anyone doubt that, in the
event of this opera becoming popular
abroad can anyone doubt that this
would be equal to an advertisement
of far greater reach and influence
than any glowing description of vol
canic or other scenery?
Fioin this point of view, it may be
worth while to consider, whether we
shall confirm the authors in their
acknowledged sympathy with these
islands, by recognising their work as
offspring of their muse, under the
genial influence of an Hawaiian sky
and inspired by Hawaiian lore,
and foster it accordingly, or whe
ther we shall alienate that sym
pathy, by letting them go abroad
If some public-spirited person
will but take the initiative, we might
still, say about Christmas time, have
this Hawaiian "Daughter of Heaven"
presented, as she should be, that is,
first of all on a Hawaiian stage, be
fore a Hawaiian audience.
