Sinco the tlioater was
by firo various suggestions regarding
its construction havo
uppoarod, tlio most absurd of
which is that lho'Mpublic" should
robuild it. Novortholess tho
public badly wants n public hall,
and I most, earnestly hopo Unit
the well-to-do proprietors of tho
land on which tho ruins of tho
thoator Btand will soo fit to supply
this want by tho erootion of a
suitable building on tho oxcellent
sito in Union Squnre.
For a variety of loasons w.th
which wo are nil lamilhir, n full
fledged thoator(or Opora House, ns
tho lovers rf high-sounding titles
in small cities call thoir placo of
oulortninmont) cannot bo supported
in Honolulu, and it will novor,
so far as wo can seo, be a paying
iuvostment. Thoro iB, howovor,
no roason why a public hall should
not pay, and it is my opinion that
if a proporly constructed building
were ereoted it would at least give
a decent return on the money invested
Such u hall should be adaptable
to all tho puroosos for which
such placo can ever bo used in
Honolulu,. Thoro should be a
stage1 for tho purpose of thoatrical
or musical ontortaiiimonts, to
tvhioh a moderate amount of
scenery and othor theatrical
accessories can bo addod at any
timo; then the floor should bo
woll laid-and thoro should bo good
rotiring rooms, so that when
Terpsichore took possession of the
promises bIio would fool comfortable
and at homo. A suitablo
room for suppers or refreshments
should bo conveniontly situated
in tho building, and indeed thero
might bo a kitchen aim ox, just as
in Central Union Ohuroh to bo
used as occasion required.
Such a hall would provide us
with a place whoro publio meet
ings of all kinds, balls, conceits,-
theatricals, bazaars and every
othor form of entortainmont, usually
inflipted on a
community liko ours, might bo
I respoolfully present thoi.bovo
suggestion to Messrs. Sprookels
aud Irwin with my anticiputory
thanks for thoir adoption of it,
and as thoy aro both sensible follows
thoy are sure to. adopt it.

X always think of tho
mounted polioo forco which was

Captain Cochrano's slcrooptioon
slide representing a oavalry soldier
might bo printed for distribution
among tho ''foorco," so that its
members could soo how a military
man should look whon ho is sitting
on a horso. But thon I'll bn
told that our mounted patrol is
not composod of military mon,
and it certainly is not not by a
very largo majority.
A mounted polIceinan.lio'B worthy the name

When good, he's content with escaping all
When naughty ho likes to,be HcKcd.',
Uu lilted for a fault to be bullied and stormed,
Or Imprisoned for eecnl days,
And hates, for a duty correctly performed,
To be slaered with sickening pralfc.
In tho published accounts of
Siturday's ludicrous burlcsquo of
military pageantry (by somo
thpugbt to bo tho shadow of coming
evonts), reference is made to
tho long sworded men in kimonoB
whose duty it in to docapitnto
prisoners, from whioh it is to be
inforred that tho writers of tho
accounts in question havo not
heard of tho groat, and almost
complololy successful efforts mado
by Japan in hor rocont campaign
to oliminato from hor warfare
ovorything of an illogitimato or
barbarous character, and thov
supppEo that to overy Japaneso
army corps a battalion of
is attached whoso duty it
is to lop tho hoads off tho harm-
logs necessary captives. Neodlesa'
to soy that such is not tho case.
Tho swordod gentlomon with the
cotton kimonos and hoads wrapped
in towels woro doubtless intended
to represent tho Samurai
of old Japan, tho
retainers of tho Daimios who used
to oarvo ono anothor in 'ologant
stylo in tho auld lang syno of
Apropds of tho consideration of
cablo projeots whioh wo aro promised
at tho coining legislative
gathering, it may bo intorosting

by Mr. Sandford Floming, whoso

for tho wholo of tho first ton

It is most upfortuuato that the
fuar of tho United States existing
horo, and tho four of England's
aggressivo foroign polioy" existing
in tho Unitod States, threatens
to shut out tho Hawaiian Islands
from tho bonefits dorivablo
from boing connoctod with an

Apropos of .Russia's
with Jupan'ri little Rama, it
iB intorosting to romembor that '
s6 far back as Fob. 17 last tho
Berlin corrospondonof tho London
Standard tolegraphod that
tho Chinoso Spooiul Envoy to
Borlin and St. Petersburg "had
not only to inform nimsolf
minutely as to tho iutentions and
opinions provalont thero about
tho war, but also to bring
nbpui an understanding between
Russia and China, or, at least,
an attjtudo friendly 'to China, in
,r6turn for cortnin important concessions."
At tho same timo it was stated
that loading Russians, hold that
"tho extravagant olaims of tho
Japanese must bo rojoctod, and
that Russia cannot undor any
cirJcumstancos allow thfr
of Ooroa to bo violated, or
any portion of Manchuria to bo
ahnoxed.by Jupan. The condi
tions of: ponoo must, acoording to
the Russian viow, confino any
annexation of territory to tho
island of Formosa with a reason
able war indemnity." '
