The Board of Directors respectfully
submit the following report :
V.-'THe' Board' congratulates the otock
holders upon the improved condition of
tho Association. A comparison of tho
,sfeteA5nfc of ?ho Treasurer, this yoar
with last year's statement, shows that
the finances are in better condition than
at the lost meeting. Tho Annual Fair
;?f I$f?; jnotwI^sUdding. it w&Held
during tho pendency of the general
election realized a profit of 8239 84.
The grounds of the Association-are in
process of improvement, tree.i have been

and arrangements have been ealore d
into fur tho cultivation of such parts of
the ground as can be rented for that
purpose, and the various special re
sources for income have beeu utilized,
so as to ?make the property pay as much
In addition to the profits of tho last
Annual Fair, we had on baud, at its

innately destroyed in the storo lately
occupied by the Treasurer, in the
conflagration of January 5th 1875.
'The B?ura" of Directors', consider
that atnplo opportunity has been
furnished to all who desired to take
stook in the Association to do so; and
they recommend, that tho stockholders,
by resolution, express their opiuion ou
this matter, und if the wish of the stook
holders is iu accordance with the views
of tho Directors, the Board which will

Law-Making in Hawaii.
?i< -j !i liulJ ?>' >
In Hawaii the legislature, composed
of .a House of Nobles aud a House of
Representatives, makes tbc laws, but if
their Acts are not approved by the
King, thoy havo no effect. The nobles
aro made by the King, and the reprrscu
tatives arc elected by the people. In
order to he a voter, one must huvo a I
certain income and bo of good standing
in the community; aud where wo.neu
possess thest? requirements, they have
thp privilege of votiug. Cut of the
eleven represeutativet, five are women.
Any man who drinks or swears cannot
nsit an a jury. There arc uo beggars,
j every man aud woman who is ablo being
compelled. to work, aud the Govern
meut gives employment to those who
havo none. Tho two predominating
religions are the Catholic and Congrcga
tional. It is customary for young wo
men to "pop the question" to young
men. Crimes involving social virtue
and purity are punished by heavy linos,
and Sabbath breaking aud swearing by
small fines. If a woman's husband
absents himself from her four ye irs she
can marry again, aud the code of laws
has this provision: "If two married per
sons do not live happily together, but
quarrel, and become famous for the
same, they shall be confined in irons
each night separately in the s auio celfi
until they cease quarreling."

us the following sketch. A lawyer in
Milwaukee was defending nhaudsouc
young woman accuicd of stealing fro u a
largo unoccupied buildii: g in the night
time, and thus he spoke iu conclusion :
. "Geutlciuon of the jury, I am done.
I W heu I gaze with enraptured eyes on
the matchless beauty of this peerlesi
virgiu, on whoso resplendent charms
8uspicieu never dared to breathe; when
I behold her radiant in tho glorious
bloom of lustrous lovliuoss which
nugelic sweetness might envy but could
not eclipse; before which the Ktar on
the brow of tho night grows pale, ami
the diamonds of Brazil are dim; and
then reflect upon tho ut ter madness r.hd
folly of supposing that so much beauty
would expose itself to the terrors of an
empty building in the cold, damp dead
of the night, when innocence like hers
is hiding itself among the snowy pillows
of repose; gentlemen of the jury, my
feelings aro too overpowering for ex
prossiou, and I throw her iuto your
arms for protection against this foul
charge, which thj outrageous malice of
a disappointed scoundrel has invented
to blast the fair name of this lovely
maiden, whose smiles shall be the re
ward of tho verdict which I know you
will give." Sho was acquitted
