The late Judge Bradley of the
United btatcs Suprcmu Court was the
member of the famous "eight to
seven" clcctoial commission who
gac the casting vote that decided
Hayes to be elected President in
stead of Tilden.
Tho able letter of "P.ilamaitc" on
the Palama road will doubtless not
be lost on the new administration of
loads. It is no wonder that two
members of the Boaid aie from along
that road, when its desperate state
has been ciyir.g for redress these
many years. An enormous amount
of good money and bad material
lias been absorbed by that attenu

In London eucalyptus oil is in high
favor as a preventive of the death
dealing influenza. The tree itself is
mentioned by a London paper as an
absorbent of poisonous exhalations
in marshy places. There arc several
varieties of the eucalyptus tiee ou
these islands, and it ought to be
turned to good account in producing
the oil, so as to add to the countiy's

A writer in Ka Leo is aiguing out
the approaching end of the Hawaiian
monarchy. He pioduces an at ray of
charges against the institution as it
has been worked for a few years
past. It is a curious fact, however,
that in every case where wrong con
duct is alleged of the monarch, up
to a few months ago, since Ka Leo
came into existence, that paper was
one of the loudest supporters of the
particular royal action.
The annexation talk in the Mail
and Express correspondence repro
duced to-day is only a variation of
what has been current for fifty years.
If the sugar bounty was ceitain to
endure as long as the Rocky Moun
tains, the argument for annexation
would be incsistible There has not
been a hint yet, moreover, from "the
party of the other pait" that annex
ation would be immediately feasible.
Jt would be better for the country if
discussions of its affairs, at home and
abroad, weic confined to living ques
tions, of which there are a plenty.
;, Countless millions of gallons of
water arc running iuto the sea this
season, some of which might have
byon saved for the probably coming
dry period, if there had been reser
voirs made in the mountains in times
past. Reference is to the water sup
i ply of Honolulu in the foregoing rc
maik, but the question of water
storage is one that extends further.
There are large tracts of arable land
now lying desert, within ea3y reach
of Honolulu, which could be made to
pioducc great wealth if the capital
weie forthcoming to store up water
now running fr.ee to the otean.
Doublle&s the day is coming when
thu example set in California, Aus
tialin and other countries, in this
respect, will be followed here both
fby public and private enterprise,
-with tho result of obtaining greatly
.'increased national development.

deadlock on the matter, Piesidont
Baithold told Dr. Porter that in the
Normal School he would have to
measure the chest expansion with the
corsets on, but in the high and other
schools, where the girls were twelve
years old and upward, the teachers
would make the measurements with
the corsets removed and leport to

The Palama people have been wait
ing long and patiently for a bit of
decent road while the (said to be re
tiring) Road Supervisor has been
polishing up the streets of Kulaoka
hua or "Nobtown." They are now
asking one another, can anyone find
a decent bit of walking ground along
the entire Palama branch of King
street? Can the genius of a Road
Supervisor fish out the missing side
walk anywhere between the biidge
and the lailroad depot clear out to
the tiamway terminus?
Theie are only two streets in Pa
lama, the main one is now a veritable
slough of despond, the other having
been built up by one of our ances
tors in the remote past is still in the
A-l condition he left it. There is no
other street in the city of Honolulu
in a worso condition than the main
Palama road but there are no grum
blers in Palama. Such of them as
were in tho business got tired and
quit long ago. All that the moie
fastidious "toned up" Palamaitcs are
up to now is to gently remind the
gentlemen of the Road Board, here's
just the chance they wanted of mak
ing a good road out of a bad one. If
the road funds are low, well they
must not forget that one of them as
sured the public that he had the
promise of funds fiom well-to-do
people, for canying on the work in
case the road money ran short.
The improvements needed for the
Palama "cow path" called King street
are (1) a surveyor to straighten out
some of the half a dozen kinks in it ;
(2) a jury to give it a width of CO
feet instead of 20 feet ; (3) sidewalks ;
(1) cutting down some of the hills;
(5) filling up some of the hollows,
and (0) a foot deep layer of good
crushed locks and gravel l oiled down
solid on tho principle laid down by
Mr. Macadam. No Ewa red mud
need be freighted all the way up to
Palama for a top dressing. The Pa
lama people are not very particular ;
they are not asking for the eartli ;
they are only asking for a decent road,
but some of them are of the opinion,
since they have waited so long, their
road should at least have the prece
dence over the widening of the Wai
kiki load. Palamaite.

ANNEXATION TALK AT HAWAII.
Uonolulu Corr. N. Y. Malt and Ex-pieg-.
The question of annexation to the
United States, if put to popular vote
in the islands to-day, would undoubt
edly bo voted down. The native
Ilawaiians would vote against it be
cause their cry is "Hawaii for tho
Hiiwaiians" ; at least, that is the cry
that has been lalscd by somoof their
leaders. A fow repicsentatlves of
Great Britain, and, perhaps, of other
Europuan nationalities, would quite
likely vote against itthrough jealousy
of Amuicaus. There arc also some
Americans, or whites of American
parentage, who would vole against
it, or would have voted against it n
few months ago, from the notion that
the present form of government is
belter suited to meet our wants than
that which we would have after an
nexation. It is considered, ptobablc by some
that annexation would shortly be
followed by an inrush of ofllcc-hold
ers and carpet-baggers, probably
drawn largely from California, who
would scorn the traditions of the
past and thus cause threat injustice,
not only to the natives but also to
the white men. There is great weight
in this consideration. Take the
questions of water rights, fisheries
and public land ; although not finally
settled, they are comparatively quiet
now ; and there is good reason for tho
feeling that when the time comes for
their final adjustment it will bo
necessary to keep in view tho tradi
tions of the soil,
It scorns as if there were scipe
ground for apprehension that these
mtciests might not receive full jus
tice at the hands of new-comers,
whose lives have thus far been un
touched by affectionate interest in
the history of these islands.
A CHANGE IN PUBLIC FEELING.
But public feeling has been under
going a change. I he experiences
of the past few months have done
much to force upon the minds of all
thinking and reasonable men, the
conviction that the destiny of this
country is sooner or later to be link
ed politically to the Great Republic.
An important factor iu producing
this feeling is the hard times that
have fallen upon us as a result of the
sugar bounties and the removal of
duties ou all imported sugars enacted
by tho American Congiess. The de
duction of 2 cents from the selling
price of a pound of sugar has in
most cases made a living profit im
possible to the sugar planter in Ha
waii. We are a nation with one
staple, and to take away the profit
on sugar is ruinous to our business.
THE NEV KECIl'ItOCITY TUEATY.
The new tieaty of absolute reci
procity with the United States, re
cently signed by our Minister at
Washington, Dr. J. Mott Smith, and
now awaiting the signature of Presi
dent Harrison, will, if it becomes a
law, be of considerable help to us by
opening up and making profitable
certain "diversified industries." But
all of them put together -will not
amount to a tithe of the sugar inter
est. It is felt that the United States
have not dealt fairly by us in the
matter of sugar, inasmuch as this
new deal wipes out the benefit to us
of the Reciprocity Treaty of 1870 by
cutting off at one stiokc our whole
mat gin of profit on our most import
And this feeling is strengthened
and made more galling by the fact
that dining the few months that im
mediately preceded the going into
operation of the McKinlcy tariff and
the sugar bounty very heavy invest-me-'s
had been made in this countiy
in the sugar business, viz., the open
ing up of three enormous plantations,
one at Ewa, adjoining Pearl Harbor,
capitaliA'iJ at 300,000; 'another at
Kahuku, representing the same
amount (both on ihis island), and
a third at Makaweli, ou the island of
Kauai, capitalized at 2,000,000.
We aie just at the beginning of hard
times, and cvoi now the distress is
considerable. The other inlluence
that tends to make annexation ac
ceptable is the feeling that it will
put a final stop to the plottings and
the threats of revolution that have
created much uneasiness during the
last two years. Capital is needed,
and capital is timid and does not
seek storm or revolution jcenturs for
opportunities of invjcstincit.
INFLUENZA IN ENGLAND.
The influenza spreads so fast, am
is becoming so deadly in iLs assaults
on all weak constitutions, that- any
preventive which seems effectual de
serves attention. A correspondent
of the Times declares that in tho of
fice of the Royal Insurance Company,
Lombard street, rooms protected by
scattering a few dropB of eucalyptus
oil on tho blotting-paper have been
free from the scourge; while in an
other department, whero the oil was
not used, five clerks out of twenty
five were prostrated by the disease.
TIo immunity produced by the oil
has been noticed during two out
bursts of the pest, and, though more
evidence is lequircd, it is certain that
extracts of eucalyptus act as poweiful
disinfectants. The tree itself, it will
be remembered, is believed to suck
up the malarious influence of mursh

"Take your boot off," said
the parson. The suspense
and silence were painful.
The organist, at the domi
