All. Reynolds, executive oflicer
of tlio Board of Ilenlth, is devot
ing commotidnblo energy to his
new fuuctiou of supervising tho
recording of bitths, deaths ami
ruHtriages. This service is ono
that in most modern countries is
perfoimed with cousidornblo enro
oud strictness. Ileretoforo it has
been but poorly attended to in
the Hawaiiun Islands. Prior to
the passapo of tho Act of 189G tho
registiution of such events was in
the lmuds of school ngouts for tho
various districts. But a largo
proportion of tho inhabitants did
not know there was such au offi
cer, or knowing it were
not tiwaro that ho was
chatged with this paiticular
duty. It is safe to say that hun
dreds of people born in tho best
known families of Honolulu never
bnd thoir births recorded. Clorgy
men were supposed, to register
man iapes, whilo a record of deaths
was crentoil ftom tho requirement
of burial certificates. Under tho
now law thoro is promiso of
Laving tho whole businoss
done systematically and with fair
completeness. It is in tho hands
of the Board of Health, this body
being authorized to appoint a
registrar in each judicial district.
Tlio executive officer of tho Boaid
is registrar for Honolulu, also
supervisor for tho whole country,
nud deputy sheriffs are generally
tho registrars for tho outor
districts. With tho police pow
ers of these officials de
linquents will bo traceable with
some degree of facility. No fee
is charged tho porsou whoso duty
it is to havo the ovonts in ques
tion legistered. The secretary of
the Board is rcquiied to furnish n
copy of any outry in tho record,
for which a feo of ono dollar is
chntged. Any physician, sheriff,
deputy sheriff, magistrate or as
sessor who may bo appointed
registtar shall perform tho servico
as part of his official duties with
out further compensation. Viola
tion of any of the requirements
of the Act reuders tho delinquent
liable to a line not exceed
ing fifty dollars. Tho Bulle
tin feels it a duty to warn
tho public that this law is not
going to bo allowed to lapse into
a dead letter. There is no need to
occupy space with argument upon
the importance of having tho ro
cords kept with thoroughness.

A correspondent of a Loudon
newspaper directs attention, says
tho New York Post, to the present
strength of tho Russian navy and
tho enormous incroaso of it which
is now projected. The amount to
be spent for this purposes up to
1D0G is 800,000,000 rubles. Tho
two triplo-scrow steamers Palado
and Diaua, which are to uo ready
soon, havo each G6I50 tons displace
ment and 11,010 horso-power, and
it is expected that their speed will
be about twenty-two knots. The
cost of each of them, without their
armamont, is estimated at 2,3110,
000 rubles. Russia has a strong
lleet in tho Baltic, another iu
tho Black sea, a third in
tho Pacific and will soon havo n
fourth in tho Arctic ocean, as a
port has beou discovered on tho
Murmnn coast, which is to bo con
uected with Finland by railway.
Tho chief port in tho Black
sea is tho Nikolaiaff, which has tho
largest dockyards, but it will soon
bo outstripped by Sobastopol.
Tho Russian volunteer fleet in tho
Black sea, mnro transports at
present, could bo rendered very
useful in war by their trausfornia
tion into switt cruiseru. me
chief Baltic arsenal of the Rus
bian navy is Croustadt, but it has
a formidable rival in Lilian, al
though it is doubtful whether tho
latter is perfectly ico fieo. It has,
how over, tho great advantago of
lyiug much farther west than
Croustadt. The naval headquartors
iu tho Pacific are at Yladivostock,
but tho Russians hopo soou to
havo a better station at Port La
zaret?, or soma port still farther
south and also freo from ice. Tho
valuo of points on tho French
coasts which tho Russians havo
been permitted to uso in common
with tho French in tho Mediter
ranean, tho Atlantic and tho In
dian ocean is evident, but tho
Russian Government nevertheless
is building war ships of great
