A fow days eiuco in looking
over one of the Hawaiian Com
mercial Agency's circulars of real
estate transactions a Bulletin re
porter noticed Boino very heavy
transfers of property from Obas.
11. Bishop to the Trubtoes of the
Bornice Faaahi Bishop Museum
for tho nominal consideration of
ono dollar. Suspeo'iag that these
transfers might 'disclose some
further instanco of Mr. Bishop's
gonorosity, ono of the trustees was
asked for information. Ho said:
"Yes, tho transfers have been
mado us reported. Some tirao in
tho latter part of January Mr.
Bishop dooded to the Trustees of
the Bishop Museum all the landa
of Waipio on Hnwaii, tho bank
property on tho cornor of Mer
chant and Eaahuraanu Rtroets, tho
adjoining building on Merchant
ct.&ct known as tho now Bishop
Ehtnto ollicoH and soveral
othnr properties which need
not bo enumerated. It is sufiici
out to say that Mr. Bishop has
deeded to tho trustees) about all
the real property roraaining to
him in tho Islands. Ho hns also
turned ovor to us considerable
personal property, for instance,
ono note for 60,000 and auothor
"As you aro nwaro all of this
property is deeded to tho Trus
tees of tho Museum. Anticipat
ing your question in advauco I
will say that the Incomo derived
from it is to be used for tho per
Cetuation of the Museum and tho
uilding of tho aquarium about
wuioh so much has boon said nnd
written. What will tho aquarium
be like? Well, nothing like tho
ideas given out in tho press in
interviews with Professor Brig
ham. That gentleman's plans as I
understand them would require an
outlay of at loast 150,000 or S200,
000. Thoy included tho purchase
of tho Dimond place at Waikiki,
tho construction by dredging and
elaborate masonry work of tho
waterfront inside the reef into
ponds and tanks whore all kinds
of marine mousters were to bo
kept, as well as buildings on shore
containing glass tanks, etc. There
was also included a very haud-
somo and costly residence for tho
tlnoctor, houses for his assistants
r.d qlPl other.3 for tlo fishirtn-j"
All these plans would have been
very good if thoro had beon un
limited monoy to back them up,
but there is a limit in this case
and Mr. Bishop's views aro and
have beon all along entirely
different to those of Professor
Brigham on this subject:. Of
courso, this is with tho under
standing that tho professor's
plans woro correctly roportod in
tho interviews with him publish
ed in Eastern and local papers"
"What are Mr. Bishop's ideas
of tho aquaiium?" asked tho re
porter. "Well, they aro of tho practical
sort. Ho is not in favor of mak
ing it a sort of show placo or
pleasure resort. His idea, as 1
understand it from his letters, is
to furnish the studont of iohthyo
logy the means whoroby to proBo
cute his studies, and at tho same
timo to foster and oucourago by
those meaus tho study of that
Bcienco. With a nation so accus
tomed to and dependont on a fish
diet as the Hawaiian, Mr. Bishop
believes that more attention
Bliould bo paid to the study of ma
rine lifo thanliBahitherto beondone.
While he heartily agrees with
many of Professor Brigham'a
ideas concerning tho aquarium,
and souio of them will undoubted
ly bo incorporated iu tho project,
still I am in a position to elate
that thoro will bo nothing connect
ed with it that is not omi
nontly piactical, i'or this
purpose of aquariums will bo
fitted un and Rtirmimnnn nf nil
kinds of fish kept therein, so that
ineir nanus can no studied. Tiieie
is much to bo leurncd yet about
Urn habits, fond nnd ntlinr dimlili -
cations of the flsh which frequent
Hawaiian waters, and an opportu
nity will bo afforded to study
"Whero will tho aquarium bo
located ? "
"Well, tho Dimond premises
have beon leased, 1 think for sonip
twouty-throo yoars, so thai placo
5b out of the question. It is abso
lutely necessary that havo puro
eoa wator direct from tho ocoan
and uncontaminated with powogc
ot anv kind. 1 think- nu Hhnll tin- i
cido on ivakaako an tlin location.
., ... . .. . .? i
I cannot say whon tho actual work
ot construction will tako placo."
"How about tho museum ? "
asked tho reportor.
'Oh, that is all tight. As huou
as tho memorial chapel now being
built at Eamehameha schools is
completed a largo addition to
tho Museum building will be
commenced. The aquaiium will
bo an adjunct of the museum pro
per and not a separata institu
tion." UMAltANTI.NE .tlATTIltK.

It is understood lhat,in spite of
the way the Board of Health sat
down on Agont ltoynolds for en
tering the quarantined Castlo
promises to tako some important
papors to Minister Cooper for

been kept up iu a vory careless

two of tho membors of tho Board
who propose to find out
whulLiet their ordure can bo nulli

of the Hoard it was ordered that
guards bo stationed both on tho
beach and in the road in front of tho
Castlo proniisos to prevent
any communication with those
in quarantine. It is now
stated that these ordors havo been
of no effect. That on last-Sunday
aftoruoon tho quarantined poople
had a regular levee, sitting closo
to tho fence and conversing with a
number of people outside, the
distanco between boiug only a

on one afternoon of this week ono
of tho quarantined officials actual

llev. forono E. Bishop, D. D.,
returned yesterday from Lahaina,
whero he hud participated as an
officiant at tho dedication of tho
now Waiuee church. This is a
handsome edifice of wood covered
ontsido with pUicco, and hr.s been
erected by Senator Henry P. Bald
win, whose father was tho mis-?ioin-y
polor of tho original
church. It is rathor of Qothio
style with a high pitched roof and
oomfortably seats -150 persons.
The roof is ceiled within and
open, ranking tho intnrior airy and
dignified in appeurance. At the
dedication scivicos last Sunday
tho odifico wus crowded in ovory
part. There is a spiro on tho
church, making it the raoro con
spicuous as a landmark.
The dedicatory sermon was
preached by Rev. Stophen L.
by Dr. Biohop as an earnest and
a stronu effort. Dr. Bishop him
self delivered a hiHtoricil uddn ss,
' and Senator Baldwin gave a short
speech descriptivo of the building.
uov. U. i. uuiick ollored tlio
prayor of dedication.
On Mouday thore was a convo
cation of tho Sunday ochools of
Maui, Molokai aud Liimii. It
was attended by a largo concourse,
and highly intoresting exorcises
lasted from 9 to 1:45 daytime.
Dr. Hishop says the occasion
was "orowded with people
and with matter." Thoro
was fine singing. Tho schools
showed excellent drilling in ques
tions and answers. Many spoochos
woro dolivered by preachers, of
whom eight or ten woro present.
Mr. Qulick gave tho opening, and
Dr. Bishop tho closing address.
Shortly after 2 o'clock tho luau
was bogun. It was a grand feust,
hold under tho uoblo banyan tree
in tho courthouse yard. This tree,
an East India banyan, was plaut-
ed by W. O. Smith, now Attornoy

Maui. By count thoro wore G70
peoplo seated at tho tables. It
wub estimated that from 400 to

Tho facts regarding tho resig
nation of E. P. Dole, Deputy At
tornoy Goueial, aro thoso: His
resignation was tomiurcu in, Janu
ary last. W. O. Smith, Attorney
Goneral, asked him to allow it to
eland until his. the Attorney
Geuoral's, return from his thou
projected trip to Washington.
Since Mr. Smith's return ho has
induced Mr. Dolo to withdraw his
resignation absolutely instood of
simply letting it remain in abey
ance. Mr. Dolo's motive for re
signing lay entirely in tho ques
tion of his own pecuniary inter
ests. i ..

Kov. Dr. Bishop was greatly i
impressed on his visit to Lnlmina
with tho wonderful development
of the sugar industry in the dis
trict. It produced 1200 tons of
sugar twenty years ago, while last
yoar tho yield was 4500 tons. It
is expected thot this year's crop
will pan out 6000 tons. Thore is
an auxiliary plantation at Kaana
pala, four miles away, whose yield
will bo 3500 or 4000 tonB. Cano
is brought from thence to the
mill by rail.
The avorogo yield an acre is
more than tloublo what it was
twenty years ago, and Dr. Bishop
gives four principal causes for
this increaso; namely, moro skil
ful cultivation, tho use of fer
tilizers, artiilicial irrigation, and

tho yield is brackish. A largo

bo used to irrigato tho lowlauds.

At Kaannpali tho area under
cultivation has boou increased
from 200 to 800 acres. All of tho
lowlands them will bo irrigated
from artesian wells, and 000 aeros
of uplands will bo served with
water from the upper valleys. It
has boon found that more than

obtained by boring tunnels into
