Thoro was a meeting of tbo Ha
waiian Relief Society this morn
ing, at which complete finnncinl
nud othor statomonts worosubmit
tod by the ofiicors. From the re
ports of tio t.oas rer, Mrs. Mao
furluno, are prosentod tho interest
ing statistics that follow. This is
doomed a good opportunity for
prosenting nn account nnd work
of tho organization togother with
the subscription list showing how
nobly Honolulu rospondod to a
call for rolieving distress.
When fis-hing was prohibited in
the harbor and adjacent watore.
on nccouut of a conviction tbo
health authorities had formod
that infected fish wan tho chief
cause of tbo cholera epidemic,
ouo of tho principal articlos of
food usoil by tho nativos was cut
off. It was liko tho breaking of
thu stair of lifo in tho land for the
Ilawiiiiiius. Later tho condemna
tion of taro in infectod localities
threatened the cutting off of tbo
othor chiof nrticlo of native food,
but happily tbero proved to bo
onough taro outsido of tbo con
demned patches to last until the
disoase was stamped out. At the
sumo time that the Hawa
iians woro deprived of thoir
fish, the intor-islund steumors
woro subjected to a quarantine
that almost stopped tho coasting
tr.ulo entirely. Ah this reudeied
idhi a largo number of Huwaiiaus
omyloyod on tho steamers and iii
shore work connected with goner
at traffic, there ensued sovero dis
tress among a largo proportion of
tho native population of Honolulu.
The fact was published in tho
press md it appoarod inevitablo
thnt, to the oxtrnordii.ury expens
es of suppressing tho opidomic,
there would bo added to the bur
don of tbo treasury tbo necessity
of lulieving wido-sproad want
caused bv tho visitation.
At this juncturo a noblo ido.i
took hold of some pouplo, so
seemingly with spoutanoity, us to
two or throe at loust, tliat it mignt
bo invidious to awaid tho honor
to any individual. Certainly,
however, Allon Herbort of Hono
lulu and Georgo II. Fnircbild of
Kuu.ii, woio among tbo fust gen
tlemen to give V'lieo to tb" idea.
Mr. Horbort spoko to Airs Emma
M. Nnkuum on the subject of
starting a relief station by pub
lic Mibiciiptinn, for supplying
fond and clothing to native Ha
waiians who wero in distioss in
consequence of tho opidonno.
Mrs. Nukuina lost no tune
in communicating with sovor
al of her intimate friends.
This wis on September 5, and so
prompt nus the response that, on
tho fallowing day, a meeting of
representative Hawaiian ladies
was held in Mrs. Nakuina'B ollico,
nnd tho llairaiian Relief Society
was organized with tbo following
Mrs. S C. Allen, President;
Mrs. F. S. Pratt.Vioo I'residont;
Mrs. F V Maofiirluuo, Treas
urer; MrH. E. M. Nnkuina, Socretary,
