issue letters from Comnrissionor of
Lru'Ib J.F.Brown and an enquir
ing correspondent denting with tho
"Wnhiawa lauds. In responeo to the
xequ st for an opinion tho Bulli:
TIN has propounded sorao ques
tions to the land oflico. Wlien these
questions aro nntweml the Bulle
tin will give the reqnested opinion
on this land deal without fear or
favor of the government or tho com
plaining corrcs ondents. Iu view
of the statements ruado in u report
of tho C'ibiuet's discussion by an
eeuiiiy paper, it is duo tho Bul
LCTI.s'h corrospondonls to Btato that
tioy are not "iifw-corueru" or peo

Houolulu now has an opportu
nity lo size up the "regular" of
the United Stated array free from
niy l-'nvt'Jiing element, of voluu
teer lr ops. Tho wisoacifsof Ha
wait's olliciiil mouth organ hav
soulit lo CRt'irdUh the fact that
t!io regulata aro largely made up
o' mou who have little ambition
and whose only aspiration ia to
exist. No hotter body of t'oops has
ev r ousted this pet on an Aineric
ill. tinnbnoii. Tho men iu ill
ranks are uei'her hobos nor luck
iug in tho general evidences of in
trlligerjco or ambition; thoy are
wellbehaved and the goolwill bo
twpen olliuers and men is by no
nieata leaeeued by tho fact that
the lines of rank nnd goneial dis
cipline are sharply drawn.
Without oastitiR any reflection
oo tho volunteer officers, it may
be said that the West Pointers
hive ha happy faculty of iuepir
iug loufidenuo and respeot among
tho men without being lnil fellow
w 1 1 iiiut with everybody in tho
rauln. With the o flieora and
won military lifo is a business
proportion, uot a picnic, but the
spirit of loyalty to the nation's
caus and ambition that each
man shall uivo L'ood account of
liuusr-lf s none the loss true.

The general supposition of tho
publio seems t bo tlint tho HkIh-
wa comotery site, which tho Cabi
net io coisidorinu, is the Halawa
cholera cemetery. As a matter of
fact this Halawa site is a tract of
land at Aiea boyond the Halawa
valley, not far from the camp of
tho Houolulu Plautatipn Compn
ny. Its principal advantage
seems to bo thut it is near the
rnilrm1, and that tho railrotd
maungfinent had m ado a very fair
proposition iu tho mutter of funer
al traiiH. If turn location is final
ly so'tled upon, it inonus tho es
tablishment of a cemotery iu the
midat of n otiie lioldj to properly
develop tho place from th tUnd
point of tho landscaps gardenor,
the government will either havo to.
establish a pumping plant or bay
water from the adjoining plauta
tion. Tho chancos aro that tho
plantation will need all tho wator
it can got for its own use. The
funeral trains will bi run in the
midnt of a plantation OMiip
and be euirouuded by all the
iuongruoua accompaniments of
of cano field traffic and plantation
Siuco tho genoral ecbome Booms
to bo to go boyond tho borders of
tho city ami tako into account
tho future expansiou of (ho town,
thoro aro other sites which might
bo considered with as much or
u;oro favor. At Kahuiki boyond

Pukiiki beyoi?d Mommlua aro lo-
cations which fultlil :u dccosbi-
ties of tho expansion idoa, Tho
olovation is Bomowhat creator
thau tho proposed llalawa site,
but as it seoms highly probablo
tb'it tho government will hive to
pump it own water, thero would
ba practicably no additional ex-
pjuso from this source. Thcso
locations could not bo reached by
th'J Bleam railroad, but by tho
time tho coraotory is ostablishpd
tho electric lino will doubtless bo
extouded in that direction.
As tho selection of a new ceme
tery sito calls for consideration of
tho extending borders of tho city,
tho Cabinot will do well to weigh
the matter very carefully so that
tho site accepted shall bo reason
ably assured of meeting general
approval in tho future and tho
present nB woll.

Quite a number of people here
floula nko to pospeas uovernment
land 0" this Island, at ft loasou

agree with tho two letters in your
last issue, ana tuauKyon ior ptiu
lisbiug them. It almost sooms
impossible that such an attempt
rthould succeed in tho near vicini
ty of Honolulu. In the column
of your paper immediately parallel
with tho lottors mentioned. I
notice a "Pablic Laud Notice" ad
vising all people that there is
Government Lind available in
far off Kaupo aud also at Paiaoa,
Maui. Now why should not a
similar courso havo been taken
with the laud at Waihawn, Oahu ?
I find is hard to believo that tho
Minister of tho Iutorior can bo
fiillv coonisant of tho facts in this
case, and I hope tho Sonator and
Uepreseutalivp from this district
will bring it to his notice. It
surely is not yot too lato stop thiB
latest laud-grub. Many of your
traders whom I hoard diecussing
tho mnttor yesterday, would muoh
like to hear your own opinion of
tho matter because they know it
would be independent and without
fear or favor to anyone.

with greater success) than any

and tho character assumod by Mr.
Walters in tonight's presentation
is unquestionably tho most novel

appears as n Happy-go-lucky,
careless, tramp, who, although
down in luck, never for a minuto
forgets that he is n gontloman
and nover misses nn opportunity
to display his gallantry or foil a
pieco of villainy.
