The San Fiancisco Chronicle has a
local report in which the duty on un
cleaucd rice is stated to be 35 cents
a pound, and that on cleaned is twice
declared to he S2 a pound. Rice pud
ding would come rather high after it
paid such duties.
What must be a very interesting
and valuable iork has been laid on
the IJuLUriN's table by Mr. W. C.
Paike, just as this issue had readied
the closing stages of preparation,
therefore too late for adequate notice
to-day. It is the "Personal Remin
iscences of William Cooper Parke,
Marshal of the Hawaiian islands
from 1850 to 1881, rewritten and ar
ranged by his son, William C. Parke."
A glance shows that it relates many
of the thrilling events in the late
Marshal Parke's eventful career.
Copies of the book, which has been
nicely produced by the University
Press, Cambridge, can be had of
either Mr. Parke or the Hawaiian
Several lists of good, bad and in
diffeient candidates for the Legisla
ture have been put forth--none of
them as yet formally endorsed by
any organization or pai ty as a whole.
Party or no party, it will not do to
have a Legislature of either block
heads or knaves, or a ruling combi
nation of both. The best business
ability, the highest intelligence, the
pin est integrity that the country can
produce are Hie qualities that should
bo sought in legislators at this junc
ture. Men to whom these attributes
will apply, by common consent of all
who are not looking after only their
own interests, should be the nominees
to be searched out, and when found
prevailed on to stand for the people's
suffrages. A number of such candi
dates have been discovered and no
dust that can be raised by self-seek
ing politicians should obscure their
merits to the patiiotic view. Until
platforms mid tickets b'e definitely
announced, however, it is too early
to discuss either men or measures in
detail. Hut it is none too soon to
warn wcll-wisheis of the country lo
be on their guard, and icfiisc to com
mit themselves to the support of any
thing that unworthily dignifies itself
by the name of party. People should
have faith that, even at the latest
hour and last resoit, there is sound
.common-sense enough in this com
munity to produce worthy material
for the coming Legislature, should
the exibtiug organizations fail to pre
sent a satisfactory field for choice,
which, it must bo confessed, they
have not yet accomplished.
FREE READING ROOM.
In one of your recent issues a kind
ly reference was made to the Y. M.
C. A. reading room. It was also
slated that the Y. M. C. A. library
was practically nil. The reason is
that it has not, as yet, been thought
necessary to furnish the libraiy,
owing to the fact of the existence of
a library just opposito our door.
Friends have contributed two or three
hundred volumes to tho Y. M. 0, A.
-just enough to show the need of
more. The Y. M. C. A. would no
doubt be only too glad to furnish
room, cases, etc., and take care of a
free iwwy, r
The Hssoclalion rooms' arc fiec to
all without distinction of raco or reli
gion. The object is lo furnish a
plare where a man can read the latest
news, etc., without being exposed to
any objectionable influences. 1 sub
iofn a nailial list of magazines,
papers, etc., found upon the tables
of the Y. M. C. A. wading room.

Honolulu, Jan. 7, 1801.
Hon. A. S. Cixmioux, Collector
General of Customs.
Sir: An article in this morning's
Commercial Advertiser says, Hono
lulu slept while the winding bark
John P. West was on Hie off this
port on the morning of the 5th inst.
Not all slept. As soon as Hie report
from Diamond Head lookout station
was received at the pilot's olllce at
daylight, the pilot on duty immedi
ately notified Capl. Rice of the
steam lugEleu, who got up steam as
soon as possible, and while getting up
steam on the tug he, the captain, re
ceived a telephone despatch from the
Minister of the Interior, C. N. Spen
cer, Esq., to go to the baik as soon
as possible. The tug Ieit the wharf
before 7 a. m., arrived at ship at
9 :U0 a. in., and made fast to the
ship, and got the slcan. file engine
10 play on the ship. It being very
rough close to the ship the tug could
not keep in position to do much
effective work. As the lire was
raging badly, the ship's upper deck
had fallen in and Hie ship was on lire
fore and aft, they could do no good
in stopping the Cue. At 11 a. in.
left the hulk and ai rived back lo
wharf at 2 p. in. Capt. Rice and
Engineer Fainsworth arc deserving
of much praise, in my opinion, in
their efforts lo save property. I went
out in tow of the tug and witnessed
their good work.
Yours most lespectfully,
A HUMBLE RETRACTION.
The Advertiser of to-day in its ed
itorial column frankly disclaims any
intended sarcasm in its report of a
recent amateur theatrical perform
ance, and explains that the rcpoit
was furnished by one of the partici
pants. I wish lo withdraw 1113' alle
gation and express my admiration for
the allegor it was a spaik of genius
that I mistook for an attempt at sar
casm. In future, I shall look to the
columns of the P. C. A. for samples
of high-class reporting from the pen
of a "histrion." For instance, the
report of the next ball as "Terpsi
cliorean struggles to Eulerpian meas
ures" ; Hie next meeting of the II.
It. A. as the "Projectile endeavors
of Empiric Nimrods," and for a
change the next performance of am
ateurs will bo eulogized as, "Thes
pian endeavors of would-be Come
dians." In fact that amateur per
formei is liable to prove a formidable
rival to the author of "Jerked to
Eternity" ; "Dull Sickening Thud" ;
"From Hence to the Unknowable,"
etc. The pen, not the play, is the
thing for that amateur.
THERE IS NONE BETTER.
R. L. St. John of I lowland,
Putnam county, Missouii, takes cs
pecial pleasure in recommending
Cliamlierlaiu's Cough Remedy, be
cause he knows it to be reliable. He
has used it in his practice for several
years, and says theie is none better.
It is especially valuable for colds and
as a preventive and cure for croup.
This most excellent medicine is for
sale by all dealers. Benson, Smith
