Tho resignation of Daniel Logan
as editor and manager of the Bullk
tin has been accepted. The name
of the gontloman who will hereafter
control its editorial columns has not
yet been decided on hut will doubt

A morning paper states that sev
eral soldiers of the regular com' ;
panies are thinking of making a
tonnis court in the grounds of the
Executivo building. While it is '
possible that the Hawaiian army
owns the earth the general public
will decidedly object to auy porticn
of the beautiful grounds of the
government building boiog used for '
such a purpose. I
Serious charges, affecting the '
character of certain ofi'n'ors of the
Hawaiian army, are said tn have ,
buou madu and that the partiesH
affected will be court-martialed.
The Bum-ktin has beon aware of
this for three day a past but, in the
hope tint the fiuaucial embarrasr
mouts from which the charges haie
arisen may be amicably settled, has
refrained and still does from oven

The chartering of the steamer
Lohua as a revenue cutter is amusing
people. To hirji a vessel that cau
not cut through the water fastor
than seven kuots an hour seems ridi
culous to a man up a tree, especially
wlion the objoot is to chase schooners
which cau sail all around it with
half a wiud, to use a nautical ex
pression. There is a curtain little
Buhoouor in port, or at least it was
an hour or so since, for' which, so it
is reported, the Lol ua is lying in
wait outside. That little schooner
with a f.ir wind cau sail all around
tho Lohua. If we are to havo a
revenue cutter give us a twenty
knot b'-at or none at all. It will not
cost.much more in the long run.
DEATH OF FATHER 0HAULE8.
Hilo's Heverod Pastor Has Gone to
His Last Homo.
On Tuesday, the 80th of April
last, at twenty minutos to five o'clock'
iu tho eveuiug, tho uoblo and gifted
soul of Itov. Father Charles, the
venerable Catholic priest of Hilo,
passed peacefully from earth, thus
closiug a life full of merits before
God and man. Forty-nine years
havo passed since Father Charles,
imbued with the spirit of an apos
tolic missionary, began his great life
work iu tho wilds of Hawaii. Dur
ing that long period he devoted
himself most assiduously to the
labors of the holy ministry, never
faltering or wavoring, although the
most trying difficulties and obstacles
at times beset his path, and well did
ho provo himself a truly faithful
laborer iu tho Lord's vineysrd, for,
during that long sojourn of his in
this, for a missionary, very enorvating
field of labor, he not onco left off
tho good work he had begun to sook
what might havo been considered a
much needed rost or change abroad.
Almost immediately after his arrival
iu Houolulu on March 215, 1810, ho
proceeded to tho island of Hawaii.
After having made tho round of that
island sovoral times on foot, a mode
of traveling which in those days
must havo beeu attended with great
dillioulties, Father Charles began,
by order of his superiors, to estab
lish a permanent mission in tho little
town of Hiln It was his exceptional
privilege to bo blessed with health,
strength, and leugth of years to
begin, to direct th'o progress, and to
witness the completion of this grand
undertaking which is a monument
to his memory his glory and his
crown. It was to be expected that
such unremitting and long continued
labor should tell upon his bodily
frame, But it was not until seven
yearsago that he first gave signs of
impaired health whou ho recoived
an assistant in the. person of Rev.
Father Maximo. Although Father
Cliarles might have been at his easo
now. ho preferred not to rest until
ho should bo in his grave. ( Every
day up to tho day before his death
ho was seen ringing the church boll
at five o'clock iu tho morning, per
forming tho usual church service,
going about instructing tho natives
in their houses, visiting schools, ad
ministering to tho sick and dyiug,
and performing other works peculiar
to his sacred oalllng.
On Mouday the 2.)th ult., ho was
suddenly attacked with hemorrhage
of tho brain, and through that aud
tho following day his condition bo
camo gradually moro sorious and
alarming. The hitherto tireloss
b idy, despite all tho care aud atten
tion which scientific skill could
c immaiid and faithful, loving de
v -tion could give, b 'gan to yiold
and steadily lose its strength. Ho
lingered through tho night con
stantly attended by many of his
spiritual children his eyes closed
as if oblivious to all things oarthly,
whilst tho fervent aspiration that at
times escaped his lips showed that
his soul was absorbed in prayer aud
communion with Heaven. So tho
night passed aud Tuesday dawned;
the venerable Father gradually
siukinir until at twenty, minutes to
five o'clock p, m., whu ho opened
his eyes slowly, looked upou tho
kneeling friends surrounding him as
if biddiug thorn a fond farewell,
then gently closing hin eyes again,
without struggle or motion ho gave
forth bis great soul into tho hands
of his Makor. Tho sad iatelligonco
of his death spread rapidly, aud
tokens of sympathy began to be
recoived, showing the universal ap
preciation in whioh tho lamented
dead had boon hold.
Quiokly too, loving hearts and
willing hands proceeded to lay out
tho dead fatLor in splondid state
and to drape tho church, where es
pecially tho lamented fathor's
priodieu was heavily covered with
the omblems of mourning. A large,
beautiful catafalque was orocted at
the head of tho contm aisle, near the
altar railing, to recoive and retain
tho precious remains until thoy
should bo carried forth to thoir last
resting place. During tho whole of
Tuesday night tho precious remains
lay in state in tho parlor of his resi
dence and wore constantly attended
by peoplo kneeling in prayer aud
visited by frieuds from near aud far.
On tho morning of Woduosday
tho body iu its casket was borne to
the catafalquo which had boon pro
pared for it iu tho church.
There it was placed, surrounded
by lights, to bo constantly watched
over by prayerful people until it
should bo carried to tho gravo. Tho
roqui3tn(mass was then begun by
Itov. Father Bonavonture who, in
thoabsouooof Itov. Father Maximo
in Honolulu, attended tho good
father in his last illness. Tho fun
oral took place from the church in
the ovouiug at five o'clock.
Crowds of friends aud sympathiz
ers filled tho large templo to its por
tals and extended far without.
Father Bonavonture delivered a
discourse whioh was marked by fer
vor, pioty, and a thorough heartfelt
appreciation of tho good qualities of
tho departed. When ho had con
cluded, ho proceeded to give the
last absolution over the remains.
Aud thou tho great mournful cor
tege was formed, escorting all that
was mortal of Father Charles to the
last sileut resting placo.
Tho pall-boarers wero old natives.
Reverently thoy lifted tho casket
from tho catafalquo and bore it
slowly down tho aisle.
The funeral procession, tho liko of
whioh )iad novor bofore boeu wit
nessed in Hilo, was pathetically
grand aud impressive as it slowly
and solemnly wouded its way to tho
comotory. All hoarts were sad, and
tho mournful march played by tho
band with muffled drum served to
intensify tho souse of woo folt by
overyoue. Moro eloquently than
words spoko that deoply solemn
spoctacle, that grand tribute of re
spect paid bv tho laitv in the
church, and by non-Cat holies, to
tho memory of ono who labored so
long and so well for the good of re
ligion and humanity in this country.
At leugth tho comotory was reached,
tho last prayers of tho church wero
recited, and tho remains of tho bo
loved Father Charles wore lowered
slowly aud sadly into the tomb, there
to await tho summons of a glorious
May his soul soul onjoy light aud
rest and peace eternal.

Yesterday witnessed one of
the quietest elections ever held
in Honolulu or elsewhere. It
was a good deal like some of
the elections in the South
American republics where you
always vote the government
ticket or stay away from the
polls. Although only 111
votes were cast, that number
was even larger than was ex
pected. Talking about the election,
however, reminds us that we
have just received a novelty in
the shape of a newly invented
can opener, which is simplicity
itself. It is called the A. B. C,
and we are the only firm hand
ling them. This can opener is
different to any other in use.
It takes the entire top of the
can off with a single turn of
the wrist. All you have to do
is to lay the machine on the
top of the can, strike a little
wooden knob similar to those
used in opening soda-water
bottles and the can opener does
the rest. There is no possibil
ity of injuring the hands or
losing your temper.
Did we hear anyone call out
"rats?" We thought we did,
and that brings to our mind
another novelty in the shape of
a French rat trap. This is a
family concern and will accom
modate whole families of these
pestiferous rodents. Atr. Rat
walks into the trap until he
reaches a little platform which
gives way under his weight
and he is caught before he
knows where he is, being
landed in an entirely different
comparfment to that which he
first entered. Ars. Rat follows
to see what the old man was
doing out so late at night and
soon joins him. We have
caught ten rats in one night in
one of these traps. They must
be seen to be appreciated.
This warm weather makes
one think of ice-cream and
an ice-cream freezer that
will suit a small family is
a desideratum. We have just
imported a new style of freezer
which cannot fail to commend
itself bv its usefulness. It is
provided with a heavy cap
which fits tightly over the re
ceptacle holding the cream,
and is so constructed as to re
quire less ice, less salt and less
time in freezing. If you want
one of these ask for the Gem.
It is a gem and we guarantee
to me that good goods and low
prices are still appreciated in Ho
nolulu. T therefore intend to give
my customers and the public in
general another opportunity. I
beg to call attention to the special
bargains in our line of

ISO.. IS. LEVY,
is tho latent novelty in cigars. This is a per
fectly Hat cigar. The filler is Havana of a
very high grade and laid in, like the shecta of
a book, in the same way an cigars that cost
$150.00 per thousand The outside appear
ance of the cigar conforms to tho filler, and is
perfectly Hut. Those of our cigar customers
who have sampled them pronounce the Ha
vana Flats of excellent quality and of unique
and attractive shape.
by reason of their superior quality and name
are umially sold at high prices. "We have an
excellent line of these cigars direct from Ha
vana. While the quality of these cigars is at
the top-notch our prices have been scaled down
to bring these popular cigars within the reach
need very little said in their praise, for they are
well known here to every sjnoker. It would
be difficult to get a better cigar for the price
at which Manilas are sold. We allow no one
to undersell us in this line. "We compete with
any nationality. Remember that when look
ing for Manila Cigars.
