The egregious failure of Ka Leo's
KnglUh page, bolstered up as it was
by a dozen or more editors, should
teach a much-needed lesson. It
proves that unscrupulousnm of as
scrtion, a numerous stuff of keyhole
nnd back fence spies, unci utter lnck
of conscience as to the decencies of
life, will not flout a paper in a re
spectable community. The inten
tion of the syndicate of professional
hackers of Ka Leo's English page
wus to build up a popular paper that
would supplant all conservative
prints. Results have proved to be
only disgust to the respectable pub
lic and disappointment to the deluded
but self-conceited promoters.
TRUTH OF THE MATTER.
The Advertiser cannot by bold
misstatement get over the plain de
duction fiom the amount of paper
imported to Honolulu. There aie
several weekly papers printed here of
at least equal circulation to the Ga
zette's, one or two being nearly
double it, out of twenty publications
of all kinds. Several small native
and Portuguese papers consume
much more paper than the Adver
tiser. But taking the Advertiser's
own statement, which would other
wise require proof, for the purpose
of argument, what do you find? Its
claim is that the Advertiser-anil Ga
zette consume 1250 reams. Well, it
takes a half sheet (to accommodate
dead matter and "boiler plate")
moie for a copy of the Advertiser
than for one of the Bulletin? It
lakes fiom half a sheet to two and a
half sheets extra (to admit pages
of mortgagees' notices and other un
interesting matter) lo make a copy
of the Gazette. Now, if the Gazette
has the cii dilation it claims, and if
the Advertiser had a circulation
equal to the Daily Bulletin, the
Advertiser and Gazette would require
about 400 more reams of paper than
the Advertiser claims they use. It
is not claimed that the Weekly Bul
letin has a circulation as large as
the Gazette, the latter having been
'established many years before the
former, and making a wide connec
tion abroad. This fact, however,
only intensifies the conclusion from
the preceding ones, namely, that the
circulation of the Advertiser is far
below that of the Daily Bulletin.
It is in reality more than 400 less
than the Bulletin's. The figures of
our importation of paper, it should
be mentioned, do not include book
and job papers.
I have been reading descriptions of
some novel and curious invention to
lie exhibited at the Chicago exhibi
tion, and have beard, or read, that
specimens of Hawaiian productions
would be presented, if so, they will
no doubt attract considerable atten
tion. But, sir, as a stranger, I would
iemind you that thero is here a liter
ary production in Ihe shape of a
newspaper called Ka Leo which would,
I am sure, be a novelty in that exhi
bition. I do not think it would be
advisable to class it as of Hawaiian
production, as it might leave an im
pression on the minds of those who
perused it, that this "Paiadise of the
Pacific" was not so far advanced in
civilization as some writers have des
cribed it; and, again, if theic was a
desire in the minds of the governing
classes of America to annex you,
this unique production might obliter
ate it, and so disappoint those who
are anxious for annexation. Altho'
a trump card for this Government, it
would not be policy lo play it, better
pass it, than jeopaidize the influx of
visitors to Honolulu. But a number
of issues might be forwarded under
jibe title of "Speci nens of native
literary talent from one of the Islands
of the Pacific. " Then the visitors
who would lead it would make every
allowance for the bad English, un
grammatical sentences, crude poetic
effusions and malicious attacks on in
dividuals, giving the editor credit
that luilf-civilized barbarians deserve.
There would be a dilllculty in
nbliteuitiug the name of this city and
olllce ot publication from off of its
puges, but I have no doubt some of
your readers can suggest a way of
doing it. A Stuanoek.

Rather a so ere earthquake shock
was felt at various points on the isl
and at about 10;3o a. m. Friday,
April 22d. In severe earthquakes
the almost invariable succession of
phenomena is first a trembling, then
a severe shock, or a succession of
shocks, and then again a trembling,
gradually becoming insensible. The
violent shocks are instantaneous, and
very few in number, sometimes only
one as In the present instance, which
had a distinctly vertical direction,
coming from below upward, and ac
companied by a low, rumbling, sub
terranean noise, like the rush of wind
The phenomena connected with
earthquakes as variously described
by many different writers, such as
nupearances in the heavens, or
changes in the atmosphere which to
them seem to have some connection
with the catastrophes they narrate,
including irregularities in the sea
sons, sudden gusts of wind inter
nipted b' sudden calms, violent
rains at unusual seasons, a red
dening of the sun's disc, and slmilnr
phenomena, were conspicuous by
their absence in this case. We ob
served nothing unuual either before
or after the shock, other than the
peculiar noise above-described in
addition to the 1 a tiling of dishes and
glasses and window panes, with a
ci caking and trembling of the house.
In this instance the true undula
tion of the solid crust of the caith or
earth-wave, passed over an immense
area and had a very great velocity,
as it was felt almost instantaneously
at Waihee, Haua, Ulupalakua and
Lahama, as well as at Wailuku, Ka
liului, Spreckelsville and elsewhere.
As these phenomena are most fre
quent around the present lines or
centers of Volcanic action, and their
frequency and violence seem to bear
omc relation to the activity and
intensity of the neighboring toI
canoes, 1 should not be surprised to
hear of unusual activity at Kilauea.

of Honolulu, is at Wailuku and will

In the Supreme Court to-day before
Judge Bickerton and a mixed jury is
being heard the case of Chun Ming
against C. L. Crabbe, Port Surveyor,
a suit for $1500 damages. Plaintiff
alleges that Crabbe entered his pri
vate apartments unlawfully, while in
search of opium. It is a well-known
fact that the "private apartments"
of some Chinamen are generally up
in an attic or loft. Crabbe in evi
dence stated that he entered the
"piivatc apartments" without objec
tion. He also stated that Chun Ming
meeting him subsequently on the
street, said that he was forced to
bring the suit by another, who told
him that if ho did not the Port Sur
veyor could in due time enler any
Chinese store in the kingdom. The
object of the search was to locato
1200 tins of opium. It was a failure,
however, as only four tins were
found. This happened in February
last. The case is still on. A. S.

to bad plays on the part of the blues.
Up to the sixth inning the kids failed
