Setting out Plants. From the lirsl
to tho fifteenth of June is tho proper
tttne, although, if seasonable up to
fourth of July will do, but. the sooner
after the first of June the better, lly
this time, with proper care ami at
tention, the plants are large enough.
The ground should he well saturated
with rain, and a cloudy day is much
the best. Immediately after a rain,
or between showers, call out the lorce
for the work of pressing; the success
of the erop depends on getting it out
at the right tune; all hands go to the
plant beds, pull the largest plants
one at a time ; don't let two slick to
gether, or the boys will drop them
together and a plant will be lost. Af
ter the baskets are lull, let one hand
continue to pull plants. Put the lit
tle hoys and girls lo (hopping one
plant on the side of each hill ; let
those who stick take an extra plant
in hand, drawing the leaves together
in the left hand, and with the fore
finger of the right hand moke a hole
in the center of the hill deep enough
to receive the full length of the roots
without the tap root bending up; in
sert the plant up to the collar with
the left hand ; stick the fore linger of
the right hand one or two inches
from the plant, and press the dirt
well up against the roots, taking care
that the dirt is pressed so a-, to fill
up the hole. Pick up the plant on
the side of the hill, and as you step
to the next hill arrange it for stick
ing; in this way you always stick the
plant that you pick from one hill in
next, thereby greatly facilitating the
work. Sometimes the ground is not
sufficiently wet, ami the sun coining
on the plant is apt to injure it; at
such limes take a small clod and lay
it on the heart of the plant to keep
the sun off, removing the clod in the
evening. As souii as the plants have
sturled, the lirtl time the g.-ound is
wet enough, re-plant wheio they have
Cultivation. As soon as the
plants have taken root and commenc
ed to grow, begin to use a double
shovel-plow, having the shovel next
the tobacco, about three inches wide
and six or eight inches long ; do not
go too close to the lull, or you may
displace the plant ; follow with a hoe,
removing all the grass and weeds,
leaving the tobacco the master of the
situation. Dig gently the surface of
the hill, and draw a little fine dirt
around the plant, and strive to keep
the soil around the hill as mellow as
possible without disturbing the plant.
After going over in this manner,
plow the opposite way, going twice
in a row. Some prefer the cultiva
tor for going over the first two times,
and, I think, perhaps it would be
preferable, as it pulverizes Hie
ground better than the shovel-plow.
After going over the field twice, in
the above manner, commence again
with the double shovel-plow, the way
the tobacco was planted, following
with the hoe, giving it a good hoeing
as before. Use your judgment about
the amount of tillage needed ; keep
clear of weeds ; keep the ground mel
low and when the plants have spread
so that they are bruised by the hoe
and plow, stop cultivating.
Worms. As soon as worms ap
pear, which is generally when the
leaves are as big as a man's hand, go
over the tobacco, looking carefully
at every plant. The worms usually
stay on the under side of the leaf; if
you see a hole in the leaf, no matter
how small, raise it up and you will
generally find a worm under it.
Worming cannot bo done too care
fully. Miss one or two worms on a
plant, and before you are aware of it
the plant is nearly eaten up. When
you find a worm, take hold of it with
the thumb and fore-finger, giving
your thumb the peculiar twist which
none but those who are practiced in
it know how to do, and put the pro
per amount of pressure on, and my
word for it you will render his worm
ship harmless. Worming has to be
continued until the tobacco is cut;
the last worming lo he immediately
preceding culling and housing.
Topping. The tobacco is ready
to top when the button (as tho blos
som or top of the stalk is called) has
put out sufficiently to he taken hold
of, without injury to the top leaves.
As tobacco is not regular in coming
into blossom, it is tho usual practice
lo let these stalks that blossom first,
run a little beyond their time of top
ping, and then lop nil Unit is in but
ton as you go. There is no p.titiou
hirhight to top at, but as a general
thing sixteen to eighteen leaves are
left; judgment is necessaiy to deter
mine where lo top; if lopped too
high, two or three of the top leaves
are so small as not to amount to
much ; if topped low, tho tobacco
spreads better; if just coming out in
top, reach down among I lie top
leaves, and witli thumb and fore
finger pinch tho lop or button off he
low two or three leaves; if well out
in top, break off several inches down
from tho button and four or live
1 leaves below it.
Stickcring. As 9ol'n ns the tobac
co is topped tin' suckers begin to
glow: one sllodls out from the slnlk
at the root of each leaf, on tho upper
side. When the lop suckers are
from three or four inches long, the
stickcring should be done ; with the
right hand take hold of the top suck
er, wllh the left take hold of the
next, close to the stalk, and break
tlicin off, and so proceed, using both
hands, stooping over the stalk, tak
ing care not to injure the lenf. llrcak
tho. suckers about half way down the
stalk, tho balance being loo short to
need removing until the second stick
cring. In about two weeks from
topping, the tobacco is ready to cut ;
now give it the last worming ami
stickcring, breaking all suckers off
down to the ground, and remove
every worm, if you don't want your
tobacco oaten in the sheds.

A LITTLE GIRL'SACCiDEKT.
A party of natives yesterday went
up Nutiaim stteam for trout fishing.
They built a dam across the stream,
above Alekoki, turning the water on
a side passage, thus making the
stream run dry. After galhcting
what they could they moved on to
another section of the fishing ground
with tho intention of building another
dam. One of the party, however, a
damsel of scarcely ten years of age,
deciding not to "leave a stone un
turned," lingered behind the rest.
While she was thus engaged, turn
ing stone after stone, it occurred lo
her that under the dam was a space
left untouched. She unhesitatingly
went and thrust her tiny hands under
it, and thoughtlessly removed small
sotnes that supported larger ones,
causing them to roll and crush her
t ight arm and leg, dislocating both
limbs, She would have been obliged
to remain in that helplcss.and painful
position for some time had not a late
comer seen the accident in time and
rati to her rescue. When he reached
the place, however, although a stal
wart and powerful mnn a member
of the Hawaiian tttg-of-war team he
was unable to remove the stones, and
called another to his assistance.
They soon cleared the stones and
relieved the poor child, who had to
be carried to her home at Auwaiolimu
wheie her wounds were dressed pro
bably a la Hawaiian.
ST. ANDREW'S PRIORY.
The closing exercises of Si. An
drew's Priory were held yesterday
afternoon at one o'clock in the large
exhibition hall. The room was nicely
decorated and the platform was
draped with lings, in addition to a
display of llowers and evergreens.
On the walls were exhibited evidences
of the young ladies handiwork in the
shape of drawings and paintings.
Among those present were: Her
Majesty tho Queen attended by His
Excellency Governor Cleghorn, Col.
duo. liichradsoii, of II. M.'s staff,
Major J. 11. Wodehousc, British
Commissioner, Dishop Willis ami
wife, Uev. J. Usborne and wife, and
a host of others. The exercises con
sisted of recitations, piano and vocal
duets, songs, minuet, umbrella drill
and the Mother Goose lancers. The
young girls all looked neat and went
through the different exercises with
reinaikable skill and precision. The
success of the exhibit' jii lies with
the following teachers: Sister Albcr
lina, principal ; sister Beatrice, Miss
Mahon, and former pupils of the in
stitution. ENGINEERS' CERTIFICATES.
As some litnorable menibeis of the
Legislature are practical mechanics
of exceptional ability, it seems a
good lime lo draw attention to the
tact that tlieie is no law of this King
dom requiring engineers to possess
certificates, consequently many acci
dents occur by green hands fooling
with steam boilers, etc., and untold
loss of life and property may take
place at any 'lime through the know
nothing of inexperienced hands at
tempting to do work out of their
sphere. If there was an examina
tion board, legally authorized, men
qualifying themselves to pass exami
nation in this Kingi om and after
ward leaving for other countries
would have their certificates, which
would be a great help to obtaining
similar employment. Every candi
date coming up for examination
shoufd pay a fee, the accumulation
of which could go toward payment
of expenses of competent Inspectors.
The Noble or Representative who
will take trouble to introduce a use
ful measure in this line will be a
gre.it benefactor to the public.
I should be pleased lo have other
engineers state their opinions on the

"THE BANK'sTa'pA-MMES LIB
ERTIES. Kditoii 1Sui.i.ktik :
In this morning's Advertiser tho
father of the bank bill now before
the Legislative Assembly, says, that
I have two hundred bags of Koua
coffee lo alii lo Ameiica, against
winch I can draw a draft, and that I
am so hard up that 1 would take his
proposed paper money at face value
for my dralt. There are limits be
yond which one's friend should not
trespass, and it seems lo me Unit the
Advertiser's correspondent has over
stepped the bounds when he inli
u.ates thai I could be such an egie
gious ass as to sell my draft for
United States gold coin and take
"shin plasters" at face value in pay
ment, when il is probable that if his
bank is launched its paper money
would so rapidly depreciate that a
dollar of my gold could buy a dollar
and a half of the paper money. I
may be hard up, but I am not such
a fool as "Tho Bank's Papa" takes
me for. Fitir.Ni Smith,
Chancellor Jndd lias rendered an
opinion in the case of It. W. Holt
vs. Ono luko ami Annie Harris.
The plainliir filed a bill in equity,
setting forth the following allega
tions, lie is the sole devisee of Eliza
W. Holt, his late wife, in certain real
estate. Her heirs were U. W. Holt,
Ono luko and Jus. Harris. The
last named dying his heirs were luko
and Annie Harris, his widow. Eliza
had moilgaged the real estate in
question for 10,000, the mortgages
being still unpaid. A. J. Caitwright,
her executor, under license of the
Probate Court, advertised a sale of
the property to pay the debts, to
lake place on the 18th of Juno. That
day a letter was received from luko's
attorney protesting against the sale
and claiming an interest in the pro
perty. The plaintiff claims he is tho own
er in fee and the only person entitled
to tlie estate, and prays that defend
ants be summoned to appear and
answer the petition and say what
title if any they have in the estate of
the said Eliza, and that the Court
decree that the defendants have no
right, title, interest or ownership in
tlie said estate. No appearance be
ing made for Annie Harris, the bill
was taken as confessed against her.
luko demurred on various grounds.
On tlie ground of want of equitable
jurisdiction the Chancellor docs not
sustain the demurrer. lie sustains
it in claiming that copies of the wills
of Geo. Wood and Eliza Holt should
have been annexed to the bill. Also,
in the claim that the executor of
Eliza's will and the mortgagees are
essential to be made parlies to the
case, lie will allow the bill to be
amended in these particulars. Cecil
Brown for plaintiff; C. W. Ashford
judge iiicKcrton yesterday ren
dered a decision in the matter of the
alleged bankruptcy of Joseph IIu
basli of Honolulu. Bishop & Co.,
petitioners, represent that they arc
creditors of llubash, that the defend
ant refused to make payment of a
juM, demand within ten days after it
matured, refusing to accept a draft
for the sniiie. In answer the respon
dent denies all the allegations and
says that at the dale of petition he
was not in debt to the petitioners as
alleged or at all.
The Court is not aware that the re
fusal to accept a draft is an act of
bankruptcy our law does not make
it so. The account annexed to the
petition is headed; "Mr. Joseph
llubash. Dr. To Jacob Lyons."
And shows a balance due of S.JOO.
There is also a copy ol a draft for
$f00 annexed. The dralt is drawn
by Jacob Lyons on Joseph llubash
in favor of Geo. Gieenzweig & Co.,
ami endorsed ny "liisliop & Uo. or
order, for collection account of Geo.
Greenzweig & Co., San Francisco.
fSigneilJ Geo. Greenzweig & Co."
An acceptance across the face of the
draft is not signed. The evidence is
that llubash refused lo accept this
diaft when presented to him for ac
ceptance. It is endorsed on the back
as "protested" by C. L. Carter, at
torney for Bishop & Co.
The Court Holds the petitioner
must be a creditor. A mere collect
ing agent only having drafts to col
lect could not under the law file a
petition in his own name. He would
not be a creditor. If llubash had
accepted the draft, the Court, is in
clined to think petitioners would
have been creditors. There would
have been a contiact between them
and a promise to pay on the part of
llubash. The decision concludes :
"I cannot find that there is any
privity of contract between pelilione's
and llubash, or th.it petitioners had
any authority to bring these proceed
ings. There i3 nothing shown in
this ease creating the relation of
debtor and creditor between these
parlies. That beiiig the case I find
that Bishop & Co., are not creditors
of Joseph HiibaMi and therefore dis
miss the petition." C. L. Carter
and F. M. Hatch for the petitioners ;
