Sr Abtrt'B Gordon, the new Ooremor of
Fiji, is chiefly known for his -stern dealing in
the imported coolies question in the West
Indies. A correspondent writing from Fiji,
says : " No one in Fiji wil 1 quarrel with him so
long as the dealings, however stem, are not

also to be regarded in this matter, and whose
only desire will be fair play. By the schooners

the atreets a receptacle for rubbtob and j to time must now be considerable, and there
muBt lie lew of these lslaudera in which pigeon
English is not to le heard, and in which the
ways of white men are not more or less under

says : " This is the plain dutj- and the plain
interest of the human race. To level all bar
riers to free exchange, to cut up the system of
restriction, root and branch, to open every
port on earth to every product, this is the office
of an enlightened humanity and an enlightend
press. To this a free nation should especial ly
pledge itself. Freedom of the seas, freedom
of h&rbors, an intercoruse of nations free as
the winds, this is uot a dream of philanthro
pists. Vic are tnding towards it, and let us
hasten it. Under a wiser and more Christian
civilization we shall look back on our present
restrictions as we do on the swaddling band
by which in darker times, the human body
TnF. Advertiser takes exceptions to our es
timate of the trade between this port and San
Francisco for 187C, as given in our last issue,
and states that over eight millions of sugar
were exported to other countries than the
United States in 1874. Very true, but does the
editor of that paper believe that the same
amount will be sent to other countries than the
United States after the new treaty takes effect ?
So with rice, molasses and other articles the
bulk of our exports will go where wo stated
they will ; and our estimate will undoubtedly
prove below rather than above the real figures.
Such will lie the results produced by recipro
city with the United States. No one posted
in commercial matters will say that our esti
mate is overrated.

Under the most favorable circumstances Fiji

Under no circumstances can the place develop

InproTcmeats In Telegraphy.
We last week referred to a new company
which proposes to transmit telegraph messa

than 200 miles, 25 cents when sent less than
1000 miles, and for one dollar over 1000. We
now see how this reduction is accomplished

Death of Major Boyd.
This gentleman who for the past year has
filled the office of King's Chamberlain, died on
Thursdav last, aped 40 years. He had been
an invalid for the past year or two, but wa
able to perform his official duties till within a
few days of his death. He has held various
important trusts, having been twice chosen to
represent this city in the national Lepislature,
and filled the position with credit. When Ma
jor Moehonua was appointed Minister of the
Interior, he was called to fill the vacant office
of Chamberlain to the Royal Household, and
in that capacity has been a valuable aid to the
King. He was also a privy councillor, nd was
secretary to that body at the time of bis death.
He proved himself to be one of the most up
right, frugal and successful of the native Ha
waiians, and in his death, we lose one of the
most prominent and useful of his race. Some
years ago he took the wise precaution to have
his life insured, for 35000 in each of two com
paniesthe Manhattan and North Western, and
these sums ($10,000 in all) with quite a pro
erty acquired by industry and thrift, he leaves
to his widow and seven children. His funeral

continents, excepting only France and Spain.

Union is tbe greatest reform that has taken
place during the present century, and will in a

The annexation of Canada to the United
States appears to be a subject of more frequent
discusssion in the Dominion than in the Repub
lic, and the Toronto leader admits that a largo
portion of the Canadians are not enthusiastic
on behalf of English connection." Our own
belief is that annexation will be a gradual pro
cess, and that it has already commenced in the
establishment of postal union, the effort at
reciprocity, the preceding experience of the
same, the Americanization of Canadian senti
ment and institutions, participation of tho Ca
nadian railroads in through transportation and
traffic, connection of the religious bodies, and
in many other things. The sentiment in favor
of annexation must be gradual in its growth in
both countries, and when it shall have fully
ripened in both, the authority of England will
depart, because it will be useless. The time
may be many years hence, but when it does
come, the fully -declared wish of the people of
the Dominion,peaceably but forcibly embodied,
will have bo be respected, and it will be. At
present the issue is not a live one here in the
Republic, but in Canada it is and will continue
to be an increasing one, because the result
would be a thousand times more important lo
them than to us. Phil. North American.
Among the questions canvassed in the late
political campaign in California, is that of irri
gation, and the Legislature will be called on
to devise ways and means to assist tho farm
ing interest. In the course of an article on tbe
subject, the AlUi presents the following plans,
each of which finds advocates :
1. Leave irrigation ditches, like mining dit
ches, railroads and telegraphs, to private enter
prise under the laws as they now stand.
2. Leave the present laws as tbey are, with
an amendment that whenever the land-owners
of any irrigation district wish to take charge
of the work at the expense of the district, they
may do so ; and condemn any lands and water
rights of individuals needed. This would be
an extension to the whole State of the statute
now in force in Los Angeles county, but not
yet effectually tested. The validity of tbe
Act has not been recognized by the Courts,
and the restriction of the suffrage to land
owners is considered by many lawyers uncon
stitutional. 3. Adopt the plan stated in the last para
graph, except that the right of suffrage shall
be given to all persons recognized as voters
in the Constitution. ThiB would lead to tho
construction of extensive canals wherever the
men wanting employment outnumber the land
owners. 4. Order the condemnation of all private
and corporation water rights not secured by
thc completion of ditches, and enact laws to
forbid or obstruct the future acquisition of
such rights and the construction of ditches
except by the respective districts.
5. Adopt the plan suggested in tbe preced
ing paragraph, and lend the credit of the State
to every district which wants to borrow money
for constructing a ditch.
6. Let the State undertake the work on its
We prefer the first plan, says thf Alta. Un
der it more than $25,000,000 have been spent
in mining and irrigating ditches ; our people
are familiar with it; our capitalists have con
fidence in it ; it imposes no burden on any one
against his will ; it places no oner's fortune
under the control of scheming politicians or
unknown and irresponsible men; and it has
no danger. It has been fortified by the laws
and judicial decisions of Federal and State
authorities for a quarter of a century ; and
more than 2,000,000,000 gallons are daily run
ning in this State through the ditches owned
under those laws and decisions.

Good progress, (says a Philadelphia paper
of July 20..) is being made upon the Centen
nial buildings. Memorial Hall is so far ad
vanced that tbe contractor feels confident of
delivering it to the Commissioners finished by
December 1 , or a month in advance of his con
tract. When it is remembered this building is
365 feet in length, 210 feet in width, 59 feet in
height, the walls five feet thick, with a dome
reaching over 100 feet, and that the work al
ready accomplished was commenced less than
a year ago, it will be readily seen that the con
fidence of Mr. Dobbins to finish it within the
time is not extravagant. All the iron-work for
the roof of the galleries is in. place, and where
the skylights do not require opening, the roof
is covered in, and the scaffolding is up inside
ready for the plasterers. Very little remains
to be done on the dome, although this is the
most elaborate and difficult portion of the iron
work. The colossal figures which are to adorn
the building are nearly ready to be placed in
At Exhibition Pavilion the work progresses
with the same rapidity. This building, 1880
feet in length and 464 feet in width, was com
menced early in June, and one-third may be
considered finished, except painting. The
eastern end, running up to Memorial Hall, is
rime in "V n fork.
The New York Herald recently inquired,
' Have we any laws in this city ?" and judging
from the statements of the New York press
generally, it is perhaps open to doubt. Bur
glaries, arson, murders, crimes of violence of
all descriptions, were never so rife, and the po
lice is apparently in league with the thieves,
or else quite incompetent, for it seldom detects
a crime or arrests a criminal. The thieves are
so emboldened that they no longer await the
coming of the night to perpetrate their out
rages, but walk boldly into houses in broad day,
gag or knock oo.vi the inmates, plunder the
place, and decamp at their leisure- A recent
inquiry into the condition of the police force by
a legislative commission revealed almost in
credible unfitness and worthlessncss among the
officers. There were men calling themselves
detectives who had never made au arrest, who
were ignorant of the law, and who did not
even know the officers of their own divisions.
Nowhere was there evidence of any regard for
the Bafcty of the public.
The World, the leading Democratic organ,
calls for a vigilance committee to put it down.
Nor can this be considered at all extraordinary,
in view of the facts daily published. The la
test case is that of a gentletnean who has lived
in New York for fifty years, and been in busi
ness there all tho time, and who, being
brutally assaulted in the street near the Bat
tery, called for help, was himself taken into cus
tody, carried to tho Tombs, kept there three
days, tried, convicted on the oath of the assail
ant, and fined a hundred dollars, the trial oc
cupying only twenty minutes, and the witnesses
for the defence not being allowed a hearing.
I is 4 'nl tare.
Within tbe past two years, the fig-tree has
recovered from the insect blight which has de
stroyed it in almost every district of the group,
and has commenced producing abundantly.
There is no fruit more healthy than tigs, nor
any which grow more easily and abundantly.
The fig commonly grown here is the black kind.
What is known as the Smyrna fig is a white va
riety, more prized in commerce. In the Sacra
mento Union of a late date, we find Borne re
marks on the way they are cured in Califor
nia. Many people suppose that there is some secret in
preserving figs, and that great skill is required in
their manipulation. To a certain extent tbiasnppo
sltiouis true, and yet when this secret Is known and
the skill acquired, preserving flgs becomes as easy
and simple as drying apples, peaches, or any other
fruit. In the first place the 6g must be thoroughly
ripe before picking to dry. It need not be actually
shriveled or wilted, but if left on tbe tree till this
stage, does no barm. In picking; care must be taken
not to jam or mash the frnlt, as this would induce
deca and mold before the juices or water can be
evaporated. As soon us picked the figs should be
dipped in a weak lye made of wood ashes, and then
carefully spread out on a scaffold o that tbe speci
mens will not touch each otber too mncb, for If one
lie upon the otber, evaporation is to a certain ex
tent retarded. Tbe icaffold should be ner the
ground and In a well exposed place so that tbe rays
of tbe sou will fall directly upon tbe fruit. A dark
heavy paper laid on the boards to lay the fins on
will be a good thing, as it will act as an absorbmcnt
ot the moisture that sometime oozes out. II the
fruit can be covered nigbtly it will facilitate tbe dry
ing and add to the quality of the preserved fruit,
but tbts is not a necessity. Tbey should be care
fully turned over as often at every other day, for a
few days, or till tbey are thoroughly wilted.
Tbey may then be picked more closely together,
or even piled three or four deep, but ahould be
moved or torued over every otber day, to that the
drying may be uniform. When tbe water of tbe
frnlt is well evaporated tnd the julcet seem pretty
thick, but before the fruit begins to seem hard, tbey
should be gathered np, placed In a perforated dlth
and dipped in boiling water sty for btlf a minute.
This will soften the tkint tnd bring tbe sugar of tbe
fruit to tbe surlsce, ss on tbe foreign fruit, and will
at the panic time kill all tbe insect eggs tbat may
have been deposited during the drying process.
Tbey sbonld again be exposed to tbe sun until tbe
water In which they were dipped is fully evaporated,
tnd then tbey ire ready for packing. In packing,
bote or vessel frprn which all insects may be ex
tinguished should be used. Lay tbe fruit carefully
doarn In layers and press compactly together, and
set away In a dry place. In about two months' time
the necessary change will have taken place, and the
fruit will have tbe flavor and appearance of tbe beat
Imported varieties, and will be ready for market.
People generally make the mistake of drying tbe fig
too mncb before removing from tbe scaffold, tod
then neglect to pack sufficiently close, tnd tbe re
sult Is simply a dried but not preserved fig. Tbe
imported fig is generally said to be tbe white
Smyrna, bnt we have no while fig in this State that
will produce as good a preserved fig aa tbe large
black California fig. Tbi variety is richer in sugar
than any light variety we hive ever seen here, and
is better for preserving and a better bearer.

Mb. Editor : I am constrained to write a
few words in behalf of a stranger in our com
munity, who has been somewhat harshly dealt
with by our Board of Health. A few months
since an East Indian arrived here, reputed to
be a physician, by name Dr. Mohabeer.
The Doctor applied to the Board of Health
for a license to practice medicine, which, for
supposed good reasons, was refused him. It
is said that the Doctor could not satisfy the
professional gentlemen oa the Board that he
knew anything of the practice of medicine, as
they understand it, in fact, to their minds, was
a quack. I do not know how the examining
committee of the Board could grant a license
to one of the Homeopathic school of Physicians,
for they certainly believe the theory of " like
cures like" to be "bosh!" A license has
been granted to a Homeopathic practitioner,
perhaps because of a wholesome regard for
public opinion ; several Chinese gentlemen are
also practicing with the license of the Board,
but the gentleman from India has been refused,
and has been repeatedly summoned before the
Police Magistrate and fined for practicing
without a license, until the aggregate of tbe
fines is so large that he has been sent to prison
because of inability to pay. I am also in
formed that he has been sent out to work with
the chain gang.
The Advertiser of April 10th, 1875, ac
knowledges receipt of a letter from Samuel
Charlesworth, Rector of Limehouse, whom the
editor endorses to this extent: "The writer
of the letter is evidently a person of position
and consideration, his name appearing promi
nently aa a speaker in the published account
of the annual banquet of the Tower Hamlets
Constitutional Association." The Rector says :
" I was distressed to observe how my esteemed
friend Dr. Mohabeer had been treated, fined
$100, for practicing medicine without a license.
If the inhabitants of Honolulu knew how emi
nent a man, both as a physician and a christian
gentleman they have among them, they would
not seek to drive him away by persecution.
Hi merits in medical rieuce are aa great as the
good qualltiea of bis heart. I begin to wish that I
bad uot advised him, when In my London Parish,
to visit Ihe Western Hemisphere. Had be remains)
in London, bis talents would soon have earned him
a wide spread reputation, such as be bud lo India and
tbe Mauritius." No ooe bat questioned tbe authen
ticity of this letter or tbe identity of Dr. Mobubeer.
It appears to me tbat tbe experience of tbe Doctor
bould enlist the sympathies of those who love their
lellowman. Had tbe Doctor been prosecuted for mal
practice, and a case made, I would cheerfully en
dorse snd applaud the diligence tnd zeal of the
Board of Health; bnt wbeu the only charge Is prac
ticing without a license, made by tbu agent of tbe
very gentlemen who refuse to grant a license, it
does seem a little arbitrary. 1 am told tbat there
are several persons in our community who will tes
tify to tbe relief afforded them by Dr. Mubabeer;
one in particular, who says tbat be bad tried tbe
allopathic practitioners without relief, aud tbat
Mohabeer " put bim on hia feet ugain."
It strikes me that to demand ol persons desiring
to practice medicine in tbla community, that they
shall puss an examination by a Board constituted at
ours It, with two allopathic practitioners, the only
professional men on tbe Board, both interested In
drug stores and both enjoying growing practice, I
something like asking the applicant to run tbe
ganntlet. I am afraid tbat there is more purse than
heart In this work; bnt If the professional gentle
men on tbe Board really desire to engsgu in t work
for tbe good of the public, of Hawaiian particu
larly, a work tbat will give a fine opportunity for
tbe display of seal, pluck and endurance, let tbem
Investigate aod lay bare tbe thing known at a
licensed "Kabuua." J. o. C.
Editor Gazstte: During tbe past two month
there ha been very little distillation of ardent spir
it on Maui, for tbe reason that during tbat time
the sale of molasiet to tbe natives has been discon
tinued, it being very difficult for tbem to procure
much of ki root, cactus, or otber ingredient for
tbe manufacture of intoxicating drinks. It Is there
fore with regret that wc learn that tbe businet of
peddling uiokusc to tbe distillers has been renewed.
It seems tbat tbose, who formerly sold this titicle
from their homes, now have It conveyed twelve
miles to Kabolnl, and there sent by tbe cart-load lo
every direction. A venerable reverend recently in
Illustrating to hi native congregation the duty of
resisting temptation, singled out tbe only one who
bad been known to sell molasses to tbu natives, aa
one who withheld from profits by that business,
while possibly at tbe time tons of bl bewildered
bearers were bappy at that opportunity of purcbat
It angura ill for any one't credit for such desper
tte efforts to be needed for tbe sake of tbe small
profits made by such a traffic. The community
might well contribute tbe amount thus realized in
order to stay the tide of Intemperance ; and tbe gift
of charity wonld be less discreditable to those as
sisted, than their selfish avarice.
Now while tbe people are showing some inclina
tion tor Improvement, as at Wailuku tbey are with
out debt completing oue of tbe tineet churches in
tbe islsuds, and as elsewhere many arc privately
showing a disposition to make themselves civilized
borne, tbose who selfishly unloose intemperance
upon tbem, remind one of tbe Torie In tbe Ameri
can Revolution, and of tbose wbo in tbe recent
American War followed the Union armies with
