Acroooc of the above letter, the
Associated Press sent oat from Wash
ington, November 27, this dispatch:
Dr. ilott Smith, a member of the
Cabinet of the Queen, of the Ha
waiian Islands, has, with a represen
tative of the U. S- signed treaty pro
viding for absolute free trade between
the two eoontries. The President has
not yet signed the treaty.
To a friend in New York ilr. ilo
reae has written some very interest
iag letters concerning the condition
of alEurs in EawaiL Under date of
November 2& he wrote:

HoooIbIh in the event of a revolu
tion. It is a shame for the United
States to play the part of a police
man in the Hawaiian Islands. By
doing so the United States imposes
upon the Hawaiian people a mean,
rapacious, eruel, hypocritical and
tyrannical missionary rule, which is
the worst calamity that ever befell

Hawaii, as well as in Japan, Corea,
China, Si&m, Samoa, and every
where they go. Tbey go to a country
with a carpet-bag rilled with Bibles
and mortgage blanks, with which
they take possession of the land of
tfceBativcs. The missionaries preach
on ceadsys in the churches, do every
kind of worldly tricks and traffic in
their shops daring the week and
meddle in poUties with their in
trigaes all the year round. If Mr.
Blaine complies with the wishes oi

"The natives of Hawaii feel very
bitterly towards the missionaries.
The Islands have been overrun with
them for many years. They are not
regular denominational missionaries
sent out and supported by established
churches, but independent ministers,
many of them never ordained as
clergymen, who perhaps went to the
Islands to become rich. They have
taken possession of a large quantity
of the best land belonging to the na

Politieal Eappeninss A Mysteri
Commenting on the nominations
Jor nobles, the Record ssys: Mr.
Young, although not a resident of our
island, is a man whom we believe
will work for the interests of this isl
and. His record -as a noble in the
session of 1S57-SS shows him to be a
fair, honest man, not afraid to state
his convictions on any subject. His
attitude on the Chinese question is of
3 conservative character; From what
we know of his views, he is in favor
of Chinese restriction, but still feels
as though we must not shut down so
close that we will not be able to get
cheap labor from that country, if
needed. We do not think there is
any danger of his doing anything in
that line that would be detrimental
to the best interests of the country.
Mr. Young has large interests iii ouij
district, and will do all in his power
to help on anything wanted for the
district, or for the whole island. We
hope that his nomination will be sus
tained by the votes of our island.
As to Mr. Marsdeu, his record dur
ing the session of 1SS0 showed him to
be a man of enlarged views. Al
though in some instances we felt that
he mlsht have voted differently, still
we think him to have been one of the
soundest men that we had in that
legislature. We believe he has the
interests of our island at heart, and
will do all he can to further them.
He thoroughly believes in good gov
ernment, and'that a part of good gov
ernment is to pusk our public im
provements. With two such men elected, our
noble list for this island will show a
goodly array of honest men. With
such "men in the legislature, there
can be no fear of bad lesislation.
Wilcox and Bill White held forth
at the Court House last evening to
about fifty natives and toreigners.
Wilcox's "speech, as far as we can
learn, consisted of praising up Wilcox
as a "model man." Paha!
The Portuguese held a meeting a
few evenings ago at the Court House,
and decided not to vote for any native
Hawaiian representative of the Bush
Wilcox party. They are sound.
The three most prominent candi
dates for Central Hilo are Kekohou,
Kauwila and Mossman. Of the three
we think Kekohou the most reliable
man, and hope that he may be elected.
From North Hilo the prominent
candidate is James Mattoou. He pro
fesses to be an independent and not a
partisan candidate. Wrho else is run
ning there we have not as yet heard.
Nawahi is the only candidate for
south Hilo thus far. He is not the
man we want, and, without doubt,
another candidate will be put forward
Thus far only three natives, none of
them suitable men, have been put
forward as our elective Road Board.
Mr. James Devereux, living at Ka
laua, near Papaikou, left his home
Sunday morning, between 2 and 3
o'clock, and since that, time has not
been seen or heard of. Parties were
looking for him both Sunday and yes
terdayv but thus far nothing has been
foond of his whereabouts. He is sup
posed to have been under the influ
ence of liquor at the time. When he
left the house he took with him a
shirt, vesfand pair of shoes. He left
his watch and keys and did not take
a coat. It is feared that he made
away with himself or else has wan
dered offand died in the wet from ex
posure. No reason can be assigned
for his disappearance. His business
affairs were somewhat involved, but
not enough so to lead to the suspicion
of that being the cause of bis disap
pearance. The bark Harvester, Captain Rock,

A Sudden Death Personals
Two sudden deaths from heart dis
ease have occurred here within a
month. The last one was a man
named John li, in the employ of the
Uniou ilill. He left his work to get
a drink of water, and was seen to put
his hand to his side and lie down.
Someone went in a few minutes later
to see what was the matter,aud found

The sugar mills are mostly ready to
start up for another season of grind
ing. No great changes have been
made excepting in Union Mill, where
a third set of rollers has been put in
with power and the. consequent addi
tions to the building.
An innovation has been iutroduced
in the shape of a chemist from Can
ada, who is to reside on the Kohala
Plantation and search for possible
sources of leakage on such of the
plantations which have combined to
pay his salary. It is to be hoped that
ne will have to look long and care
fully before he finds any.
The new bridge in Walaohia gulch
has been opened for traffic The ap
proaches to it are narrow, particulariy
on one side, but nothing more can be
done until the Government supplies
the necessary funds. These approaches
should be fenced as well as widened
It may not be out of place to men
tion the name of Mr. T. S. Kay in
this connection as having shown con
siderable active interest m the build
ing of this new bridge, and rendered
valuable service to the Road Board,
which will undoubtedly be pleased to
see some notice of it in this way.
Aside from the services held in the
Chinese and Anglican churches, the
only public celebration of Christmas
day noticeable, was the display of
banners over a shed built for an ath

raised, platform for special guests,
mostly women and children. The
shedVsovered a circle that had been
made forthe display of Japanese
wrestling, and some dozen or more

exhibition of skill and muscular

of the surrounding crcr.HL

The various replies in the Gazette
to inquiries about D. Jj. Huntsman,
furnisri amusing reading, and bring
out various comments. The great
fault of his sympathizers appears to
have consisted in bringing him back
to life from a bed of sickness. Perhaps
he will be able to call to mind the
little story about the snake that a
farmer found freezing by the roadside
and compassionately put into his
bosom to warm back to life.
Mr. and Mrs. C. Xt. Wight, of Mahu
kona, will celebrate the tenth anni
versary of their marriage at their
house this evening, for which cards of
invitation were issued lately. There
will be dancing, a display of tinware
and no end of good things to satisfy
the hungry. May they live to enjoy
many happy returns." A train will
leave Manukona at 1 a. it. to carry
the guests back to their homes, and
perhaps this brief notice will be as
good as a more complete one written
in the "wee sma hours," when the
eyes are heavy and the head is eager
to feel a pillow after the enjoyments
Cool weather prevails, but no great
