If colonization means anything for
Hawaii it means the upbuilding of inter
rial wealth and the development of the
country's resources; it means good
times in n few years, provided our colonization
schemes arc practical and
jiistj it means permanent homes with
home interests and simple frugality for
the foundation upon which may be
built citizenship thn,t will honor the
Kingdom; it means solidity, fertility
and national advancement provided
it be properly carried out. Colonization
has done much for the development
of Australia Under less favorable
circumstances, in many cases, than it
would have to contend .iwith here.
Cases have occurred in Australia where
colonization has been made a success
on large tracts of land, which were only
held under long leases, say of from 20
to 50 years. There is hardly a doubt
that if colonization can be made successful
on long-lease land there, it can
be successfully carried out in the Hawaiian
Islands where the land can be
obtained in fee simple by the colonists
and paid for at leisure. One of the
first questions to be considered in putting
forth a scheme of this kind is,
what can the colonists do to make an
immediate living without the assistance
of capital ? If the promoters of colonization
here can provide for immediate
returns to" these tillers of the soil
and these raisers of cattle there will be
little trouble in finding a sufficient
number of willing hands to take up
Company land at fair.rates. But many
colonists could, be secured for future
citizenship who could bring a small
capital into the scheme, which would
almost insure its success under ordinary
circumstances. We speak advisedly
when we say, that if the present
colonization scheme had developed
earlier, at least $45,000 out of .the
$75,000 sent out of the Kingdom by
Portuguese immigrants would have
remained here and became a faction
in the prosperity of the country.

The former regulations, relating to
, Chinese restriction, issued- by the
Minister of Foreign Affairs in March,
1884, having worked so admirably, the
Minister has issued, by authority, the
following set of regulations which it is
supposed will work as
the others :
No. 1. From this date no vessel
coming from a foreign country will be
, allowed to land more than twenty-five
0 (35) Chinese passengers at any port in
the Hawaiian Kingdom, unless the passengers
in excess of that number are

to enter the Kingdom.

ers to return to the Kingdom will be
granted at the Foreign Office, Hono
lulu, to all persons of Chinese nation
ality now resident, or who may here
after become resident, on these islands,
who may desire to visit any foreign
country, provided always that such per
sons have been engaged in trade or
have conducted some industrial enter
prise during at least one- year of their
residence here. No return passports
will bCgiven to Chinese laborers leaving
No. 3 Passports will be granted
tit the Foreign Office, Honolulu; also

Messrs. Allen & Robinson have been
first in aiding with their enterprise the
revival and development of our home
industries. Since the completion of
their new lime kiln near the Fish Mar
ket, they have been turning out a suffi
cient quantity of fine lime to supply
the Honolulu market and have vir
tually stopped one of the leaks which
was annually wasting a, large amount of
the revenue of our home labor in pay
inn for imported lime. It is true value
received is given for foreign pro
duce by foreign mcrchahts In most
cases, but Ihe greatest benefit accruing
to this new home industry is that both
profit and labor are experided here,
and capital as well as interest arc thus
kept in circulation. There will be no
trouble in the present company making
arrangements to supply the entire trade
of the islands with good lime if its pres
cnt capacity prove insufficient. The
quarries at Honouliuli are practically
incxhaustable and will not only suffice
for what is used here, but there is no
reason why this industryshould not be
so developed that we could export lime
to other countries at a profit.
A friend, well ' posted in Australian
affairs, informs us that we have a
musical celebrity of a high order in our
midst, in the person of Herr Julius
Herz, who arrived by the last steamer
from the Colonies. Professor Herz
arrived in Melbourne about fiften years
ago and at once took a front place in
the rank of eminent musicians in that
very musical city.
As a pianist, leader and composer,
his reputation is European as well as
Australian. The Melbourne
a society of gentlemen ama'teur
vocalists and instrumentalists was or
ganized by Herr Herz, and is said to
be not inferior to the Orpheus Societies
of Paris, or the Philharmonic of London.
"Herr Herz is a genial
sationalis't and a well travelled man, and
as this is the first real holiday that he
has been able to snatch from his admirers,
we trust he may enjoy it

Many maintain that the day of
weekly newspapers is past in Honolulu;
that the people want their news and
food for thought fresh with their coffee
every day; and that the people arc willing
to payjor what they want. At the
very nominal figure established as the
subscription price of Honolulu Dailies,
fifty cents a month, it must bc.bornc in
mind that six or seven hundred, or
even a thousand subscribers is but a
mere bagatelle toward the expense of
conducting a newspaper. Our advertising
rates arc not Mich as Would
satisfy our Pacific Coast contemporaries,
or in fact any but those who labor
for the love of it rather than for profit.
This parjer will not bo run 'for glory,
but will conducted on a sound financial
basis and value received will be
given to its patrons in every case.
Wc believe that the . independent elements
in the community will appreciate
and properly support a daily morning
paper that is outspoken and independent
in its utterances.
The Daily Honolulu Press will
be published every morning, Sunday's
excepted, for the proprietors, Messrs.
L. T. Valentine and Arthur Johnstone.
Mr. Valentine will be the responsible
business manager and Mr. Johnstone will
be the responsible editor of the paper.
It will be the aim of the management
to make the Honolulu Press a newspaper
in every sense of the word. The
paper will contain twenty-eight columns
including a daily average of from six to
eight columns of local news, editorial
matter and short pithy articles of general
interest to the residents of the Hawaiian
Islands. It will be made distinctively
a family newspaper, and will endeavor
10 reach the interests of all classes of
citizens without introducing the
features Of the newspapers of
The editorial department will be conducted
in a candid, manly and impartial
manner, and. while political theories
and public actions will be carefully
probed, and, in many cases, severely
criticized, the utterances of the paper
will be jealously guarded and not al.
lowed to degenerate into abuse or per
sonal detraction. In the main, edi
torial articles will be short and always
to the point ; but in cases where the
facts warrant and public opinion demands,
fuller expositions of living
issues will be given.
Our local department will contain
everything of interest to the .general
readers of the islands and will include
local notes from the other islands and
general correspondence on local topics.
This department will be made spicy
and readable, and will, . from time to
time be interspersed with humorous
local episodes. Full reports of all public
events and social entertainments
will be given and a just equipoise will
be established among our various so
cial elements for special news.
The shipping department will be
made full and correct and special arrangements
will be made for weekly
corrected lists of foreign shipping.
Full shipping notes of our inter-island
traffic will be given, and the interests
and convenience of shippers. Will be
carefully studied and provided for.
Our advertising department will be
conducted on liberal business principles
in such a manner, that the ends of
patrons may be reached by placing
their wants and desires before a majority
of the reading public. Promptness
and correctness in this department
will be assured. Arrangements have
been made with the proprietors of the
Saturday Press to carry out all
advertising contracts and subscriptions,
which will faithfully done.
Collections will be made, monthly and
all 4)ills against this paper will be paid
monthly upon presentation to the business
In conclusion, the chief aim of the
Honolulu Press will be to foster and
protect Hawaiian interests while especial
attention will be given to individual
industries and plantation enterprises.
We expect to merit the support
of the community and respectfully
ask the privilege of a fair trial.

The Annual Meeting of the Young
Pcoplen Christiah Temperance Union
was heldlast evening in the vestry of
The society was organized by Mrs.
Southwick (then Miss Brccse) two years
ago, and has been instrumental in
doing much good by training the young
people in the principles of total abstinence,
and the highest order of morality.
The number on the roll at present is
about 130, but only about a fourth were
present. A programme of recitations,
social and instrumental music by the
young people evinced talent of a high
order. The intellectual half of the entertainment
was concluded by an- address
from Mrs, Southwick in which
the members were impressed with
the pleasures and advantages which follow
from the strict adhcrancc tq the
principles which each boy and girl present
professed, and the importance of
having the highest possible . example
ever before them as a rule of conduct.
'The question of altering or improving
the organization would come before
the members at the next meriting.
Ajsmall spread table, resembling one
of Mcllcr & Halbe's counters, was laid
out at one end of the room, and the
good things passed round to the juveniles
and visitors, who appeared to enjoy
the cake and lemonade as much as
Falstaff could possibly have enjoyed
his cake and ale. .
This society and its devoted leader
deserv every encouragement.
A Xew Merit Safe.
Messrs. Williams and Mayhew have
applied for" a patent upon an invention
which is a novelty in its way. It is an
ingenius devico for keeping insects out
of meat safes and will be manufactured
with safe, complete, or without the safe
so that the ordinary ' four-legged safe
can have the legs removed and be
placed upon it. The patented part consists
of an upright four inches square
surrounded just above the feet, about
midway, with a tray five
inches wide and two inches deep, containing
water. The tray has an overflow
and stop cock so that the water
can be drawn off either way. The safe
is placed upon a bracket and rests upon
the upright. The patented stand will
fit any meat safe and will ensure the
exclusion of insects and facilitates cleanliness.
The feet of the stand project
far enough so that the tray cannot come
in contact with the wall. This stand
will virtually do away with the many
inconveniences of the. old four-legged
stand and will cost but a trifle more
than the old style, with patent stand
and safe complete. Drawings of the
invention can be seen at Williams' photograph
gallery where one of the new
safes will be put on cxhibition during
the week. They will be manufactured
in three sizes and are especially adapted
to the wants of tropical countries.

A poi pail was riding down town the
other day in a stylish carriage when the
horse suddenly shied and threw the
poi pail into the street. The carriage
also contained several young ladies who
clung to the seats. The occupants of
the carriage did not miss the poor poi
pail at first and left it lying in the gutter
looking into the show windows of
the Temple of Fashion. At last a polite
Hotel-street clerk who happened to
pass that way saw the disconsolate poi
pail and asked it what the matter was.
The poi pail dried its eyes and replied:
"Alas I kind sir, if 'you will
only put me back into the carriage, so
that I may be taken home and eaten
up, I shall again be happy I cannot
bear to think how those young ladies
would miss me at supper." The kind
clerk placed the poi pail in the carriage
where it was received with exclamations
of surprise and delight. The
sequel of this thrilling episode is a
moral which none but the poi pail can
