THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 1893.
In this Ibsuo is a lottor from a cor
rospondont who is ovidontly in favor
of annexation, which criticisos tho
course of tho P. G. in its inordinate
predilection for unnecessary legisla
tion. Lest it might bo thought tho
lottor is only an ocho of arguments
boforo tho Supromo Court on Tuos
day, tho fact should bo stated that
tho lottor camo by tho Claudiue's
mail from tho other islands yostorday.
Tho pooplo of tho outer districts
have thoir oyes open to prosont
faults and follies of "provisional"
administration as well as tho deni
zens of tho capital.
MEDDLE AND HUDDLE. i
The unfortunate disposition of
tho ill-starred President of tho
Board of Health, Mr. William O.
Smith, to bo forever engaged in a
policy of "Moddlo and Muddle," has
precipitated a most lamoutablo tra
gedy in tho secluded aud ahriosl in
accessible valloy of Kalalau, on tho
Island of Kauai. As is well known,
that valley has, for many years past,
boon tho resort nud rofugo of a con
siderable number of lepors, most of
those unfortunates from tho Island
of Kauai having sought that asylum,
oxcopt whon intercepted bj' tho offi
cers of the Board of Hoalth, aud
brought to Honolulu for "shipment"
to Molokai. For many years tho
government of the day have silently
and tacitly acquiesced in the uso of
Kalalau as such asylum, whore tho
victims of that dreaded scourge
might ond their days in peace, and
at thoir own aud at thoir frioud's
espouse, without charge to the tax
payers, or dangor of contagion to
the community. In manj' respects
Kalalau is an ideal home for those
unfortunates, being much moro elig
ible than tho Molokai corral, for tho
purposes mentioned. Kalalau is a
wonderfully fertile and productive
valley, with a narrow opening upon
tho oceau at tho north coast of tho
Island, and oxtending inland toward
tho heart of Mount Waialeale, like
an enormous fissure in the face of
Nature. It is quite inaccessiblo by
sea during about eight months of
tho year, because of tho tromendous
surf which constantly boils at its
entrance, while it is walled in from
the re3t of the Island by practically
unclimbablo cliffs, rising sharp from
the bed of the valley to a height of
thousands of feet. Thus situated
with ample food supplies in tho pro
ductive taro lands, and with almost
complete immunity from outside in
trusion over the cliffs, tho residents
of Kalalau, leprous aud non-leprous,
have for years held thoir mild and
unoffending career, as happy and
contented as tho nature of things
But the maggot of unrest scorns
to have invaded the brain cavity (if
not the brain) of tho "Provisional"
President of tho Board of Hoalth,
as well, perhaps, as of others of tho
Board, and it was determined to
goad and prod tho unfortunates of
Kalalau, and to remove them to
Molokai, where they could bo mado
a charge upon tho public puroe.
Accordingly a posse of police, led by
Louis H. Stolz, Deputy-Sheriff of
"Waimea, Kauai, was sent to malto
arrests, as described in our local
columns. The lepers had often bo
fore intimated thoir purpose to
fight for their homes, in case of I
hostile invasion, aud on the occasion
of Stolz's lauding thoy gave a fatal
verity to their threats. Tho result
was the larnentablo shooting to j
death of Deputy-Sheriff Stolz, a
bravo and efficient officer, and tho
disarming and expulsion of native
officers by whom he was accom
panied. The Bulletin laments tho
death, tho needless death, of so good
and bravo an officer, whoso only
fault was the discharge of his duty,
under instructions from his superi
ors. But we cannot avoid a feeling
of regret that tho victims of tho
lopors' "homo defonso" project
should have boon ono so innocent of
all connection with the cause of the
affray. If it bo tho pleasure of tho
Fates that more victims shall bo de
manded, wo respectfully nominate
some of tho official nud officious
gentlemen whose meddling disposi
tion in tho promises is chargeable
with tho tragic sequel.
It is impossible for inon and wo
men possessing tho feelings of
human boings, to withhold their with the following named members
Dm..n, f-,.m i.n ,,nfr,.nn!"nttenduuco: Ministers polo(Prqsi-

thoy should btibmit without a con

attempt at thoir removal will bo al

it Bhnll bo further prosecuted, by
all moans lot tho gallant President

We are now prepared to

You can build it as rapidly as
an ordinary wire fence and
with fewer posts, consequently
less expense than the other.
When completed the fence
will resist attacks of stock that
would break down any fence
constructed in the old way.
If for any reason it should need
repairing one man can do it at
a great saving of time. We
have samples, actual size, to

ested in fence building and
who contemplate improving

and in time.
The last steamer brought us
a full supply of Garden Tools
in small sets suitable for ladies
who like to give their personal

them justifies the additional
