By tho last moil Dr. II. C.
Sloggott, now ouo of Honolulu's
ostoomed citizons, received a hand
some bronze medal in recognition
of distinguished services rendered
as n lioutonant on board H. M. S.
Challenger on hor memorablo
scientific expedition in 1872-G.
Whon seen bj; n Bulletin re
porter today the genial doctor was
somowhat reticent about giving
out anything in connection with
tho modal for publication, but on
being informed that tho fact of
its being prosoutod to him
had come from tho British Vice
Consul, T. It. "Walker, Esq., ho
yielded gracefully and produced
tho modal for tho reportor's in
spection. It is of brouzo about
threo inches in diamotor, both
faces containing raised figuros.
On one sido is a lino medallion of
Britannia and tho ocean at hpr
foot in which mermaids and
tritons aro sporting around, while
old Noptuuo's tridont appoars in
the distance. On the rovorso sido
is another medallion, consisting
of tho figuro of a knight in com
plete armor throwing down his
gauntlet tho challougor.
On tho first sido is tho inscrip
tion: "Voyugo of II. M. S.
Ohnlleugor, 1872-G." On the
rovorso the inscription is: "Ro

Dr. Sloggett was with tho Glial

Ho retired from tho navy in 1875
upon promotion nnd onterod on
tho study of medioino at Edin

of this valuable roport wns lately
prosonted to tho Bishop Museum

A motion has been filed by
Kinuoy & Ballon, attorneys for
plaintiffs, for a rehearing of tho
"bill for ll.cifon&frueliou of will,"
A. I Judd,.Jru8teo, and others vs.
C. A. Browii. It includes the
substitution of nnothor judge in
place of L. A. Thurston, who sat
in the first hearing in pluce of
Chief Justice Judd, disqualified
on nccount of interest.
An affidavit io filed from Mr.
Thurston, sayiug that no consul
tation of justices hus boon hold
sinco tho hearing, that ho is about
to leave the country and cannot
giyo time beforo departure for
joining in a consultation, aud
that he "respeotfully declines to
join in an opinion in which ho
Iuib not put-his best ondoavorB."
Mr. Ballon litis made affidavit,
which is nl?o appended to tho
motion, in the following terms:
"S. AI. Biillou being duly sworn
doposes and says: tliut ho ia one
of tho counsol for plaintiff in the
above entitled case; that the caso
has becomo ono of great urgoncy
on account of tho following facts,
which he alleges on information
aud belief, to wit:
"That tho decision of this caBO
involves tho question of whether
tho title to n large tract of laud
required by tho projected Oahu
plantation is in Irene E. Brown
or in trustees; that tho said Irene
E. Brown and her husband, O. A.
Brown, on the belief that tho title
to said land i'b in them, hovo on
tored into an agreement giving
ouo Lincoln McCandloss a right
to pasturage on tho lands in ques
tion; that said Lincoln McCand
loss refuses to release said pastur
age in order that a loaso mny be
mado to tho projected Oahu plan
tation unloss he is paid an exor
bitant sum, to wit, tho sum of six
thousand dollars per year, which
sum Ireno E. Brown and O. A.
Brown refuso to pay although
offering said McCandlcss a liberal
sum for tho pasturage right
covered by said agreoraont.
"That tho promoter and agents
of tho Oahu plantation, to wit, H.
Hnckfold & Co., havo informed
tho partios to this controversy
that said controversy must bo
sottled and a leaso with a good
titlo mnst bo given forthwith, or
the projected Oahu plantation
will bo abandoued outiroly, which
result would cause irreparable in
jury to all partios coucorned in
this controversy; that should tho
decision in this case reach tho
conclusion that tho titlo to tho
land in question is in certain
trustees, tho said trustees could at
ouco break tho deadlock now ox
isting between tho said Irene E.
Brown and 0. A. Brown on tho
one hand and Lincolu McCandlcss
on the other hand, by giving a
valid lease to tho projected Oahu
"That besidos tho threatened
total abandonment of. the enter
prise thoro is danger that it may
be postponod for ono year on ac
count of tho ponding controversy,
for the roason that certain pumps
must bo ordorod at onco if tho
plantation is to bo started this
year, and tho agonts and promo
tars of said plantation refuso to
tako any stops whntovor until thoy
aro assured of tho leaso in ques
tion." There was a meeting of tho
board of oflicors of the Oahu Su
gar Company, Limited, this fore
noon. Details of preliminary
work were discushed. When tho
incorporation dooumonts are
ready, directors to act with tho
oflicors will be elected. Manafjor

Cold on tile Tree.
Sonator Wilcox of Kauai was
discussing tho effect of tho rocon't
cold spell on tho mango trcos at
Lihuo a few days ago. Ho said
that tho trees which had
alroady blossomed nnd hnd
fruit formed as largo as cher
ries commenced to blossom ovor
ngain. Tho second crop of blos
soms was much more prolific than
tho first. As the result of obser
vations in former years ho had
noticod that tho mangoos from
the second crop of blossoms
woro much finor-flavorcd and
largor than thoso from tho first,
whilo tho labor of hearing a
doublo crop did not seem to affect
tho trocs in tho slightest.
Many of tho trees in this city
havo acted in a similar way, aud
tlio small boy can now luxuriate
in tho prospect of a doublo crop
of this luscious fruit.

The all -absorbing topic moug
tho Indies, and a good nmny
gontleiuen too for that mat., is
"What shall we wear fi- tfio
calico ball ?" Tho Bulletin lias
been asked to dofiuo tho Tord
"calico" and sot at rest soma ques
tions which havo nrisou as to
what costumes may bo worn at a .
The word calico originn"! in
England. It is a corruption of
Calicut, a largo city in Indii i
whonco n lino white cotton cloth
having figured dosigus was first
imported into England. " -b
first called Calicut cloth, trom
which tho transition into calico
was easy and natural.
As now gnnornlly understood,
and tho definition is taken
from tho latent ' edition
of Webstor, calico is nny kind of
cotton cloth with a figured design
printed on ono sido. Tho English
definition restricts calico to white
cotton with colored figuies but
there is nothing in tho Ain"iir.m
to preclude a colored bod) i Jio
figuros are of anothor tint.
From tho nbovo thoro should bo
no difficulty with tho ladies in
srlectiug a suitublo costume, as
tho varieties of cotton goods com
ing under tho definition of calico
aro almost iucxhaustiblo.
For geutlomon thoro should bo
nodifficulty in wearing uu appropriate-
costumo either. If the ntdy
ho is going to escort is go... u
wear a fancy dress or iiaontnc
nuy pnrticnlnr character it would
bo proper but not net...!...
for tho gentleman to got somd
fancy costumo mndo of calico, a
clown's for example. If tho lndy
simply wears a calico dross rnado
in tho usual stylo for e ... 3
wear, tho gontlouiau v.jlil
bo quito correct in un
ovoryday sack suit of cotton
ducking. Claw hammer suits of
tho same material could bo made'
if ono wanted to portray tho char
acter of a dudo or swoll but they
havo soldom beon seen aud would,
doubtless, bo frowned upon.
Tho Bulletin is of the opinion
that Any light print drpsB for
ladies mado in n style to he zcr
vicoablo in tho futuro, nnd nn
everyday white summer sn't W
gentlemen will moet tho reiim
monts of a calico ball. Th - -y
fact that drosses aro roquircd of
such cluap matorial would indi
catn that economy should bo tho
rulo for both sexes.
