It is not often that the Daily Honolulu
Press " blows its own trumpet,"
but we feel a pardonable pride in call
ing attention to the "Grand Offer"
made by us, in another column of this
issue. This is a'n enterprise which, we
believe, is the first of its kind that has
ever been attempted in this Kingdom,
and, we trust, will receive the patronage
it deserves, as it is a bona-fide
arrangement by which the public can
get a six months' subscription to our
paper, and a valuable Holiday Gift, at
club ratesr which are much less than the
regular prices when not combined.
This offer is open only until January j,

There seems to be more of a muddle
than a hitch in the carrying out of the
new mail service under the late arrange
ment enTercd lnloUndef th'eNcvrZeatan
dia Government contract The facts, as
gleaned from the Australian mail which
arrived night before last, are as follows.
The steamer Alameda has been held in
San Francisco to bring the English
mails which were due there on the 21st
instant, and will probably arrive here
next Saturday. The steaniers Australia
and Zealandia have been withdrawn
from the arrangement entered into
under the New Zealand contract, and
the Australia will leave Sydney on the
1st of December for San Francisco,
touching at this port. The Union steamship
Company or New Zealand have
advertised to dispatch the steamer
from Auckland on December 8th,
and the Alameda from the same port
on January 5th, 1886.
We learn from Messrs. H. Hackfeld
& Co, the agents, that the steamers
Australia and Zealandia, and probably
either the Arizona at the Alaska, have
formed an independent line which will
,run direct between Sydney and San
Francisco, touching at Honolulu both
ways. This new line, freed
from the disabilities of the past,
will carry both freight and passengers
between these respective terminal
points, touching here both ways in
competition with the Oceanic Company
and such steamers, it any, that
the Union Company of New Zealand
or other parties may put on the route.
"It is probable that the Union Company
will run a line of steamers between the
above mentioned points in conection
with their local steamers running
between Melbourne, Auckland, and
Fiji The subsidy granted by New
South Wales and New Zealand is, at
the present writing, confined to the
Union Company. There is a probability,
however, that the subsidy so
granted to the Union Company and the
contract entered into by the Post
Master of New South Wales may not
be confirmed by the Parliament of
New South Wales, which will assemble
shortly: In this event the subsidy may
be used in favor of the Australia and
Zealandia line, for which Messrs
Hackfeld & Co., will act as agents at
Honolulu. Under the. present arrangements
the Pacific Mail S. S; Company
will no longer run steamers on this
route. The arrangement which has
existed up to the present time, which
provided that the Pacific Mail steamers
should not come into competition with
the Oceanic Company, was made by the
Pacific Mail Company without the con
sent of the owners of the Australia and
Zealandt'a. It will, therefore, be seen
that under the independent" arrangements
made by the owners of these
steamships, this line will be at full
liberty and will doubtless deal more
liberally with the Honolulu public in
To Cop the L'Htnax
Editor Daily Honolulu Press :
Sir. While wandering around' the
other day in search of work, I was attracted
to a job of painting being done
by two white men, not in citizen's dress
but in striped siiits suits worn here by
prisoners usually styled the prisoners
full-dress uniform. I made enquiries
and found they were hired out to a
white man who had erected the buildings,
and he knew that that was the
only way to, get his houses painted at
the rale of fifty or seventy-five cents
per day. I went home and sat down'
disgusted with myself and everything
around me, especially that thing they
call the Government, who would allow
their prisoners to be hired out to do
mechanical labor at the rate of seventy-five
cents a day to such a penurious
customer. Now Mr. Editor, I have
lived in this country for over 35 years,
have paid my taxes, (and if I had not
I should have had to work them out
on the road at the rate of prison wages)
have been a good citizen and abided
by the laws in every respect and this is
the way they help me to earn a living
and support my family. The country
is getting too lo.w down for a poor
respectable mechanic to live in. The
next move, it would not astonish me,
would be to appoint some of the
prisoners to fill responsible govern
ment situations, which I have no doubt
they could fill to the better satisfaction
of the General public (I don't mean
the Government public,) than some of
those who occupy their present
r. 3fC. A. Reception to the JlrltUh Tar;
One of the most enjoyable entertainments
of the season was that given last
evening to the crew of H. M. S, Constance
at the Y. M. C. A. Hall.
The exercises opened with a short
address of welcome by the British Vice-Consul,
Theo. H. Davies, who presided
over the social. His greeting to
the man-of-war's men, who were gathered
in force, was received with hearty
applause, this was followed by a
duet " Life's Dream is. O'er," Ascher,
beautifully sung by Mr. and Miss von
HolL No. 3 on the programme, Reading
an amusing "Episode of Co'untry
Life," we should call "A Tramp up a
Tree," was read by Rev. George Wallace,
in his usual happy style, convulsing
the audience with laughter. A
Song "It must be so," by Franz Abt,
was so well rendered by Miss McBryde
that 4K0. Jady- was compelled
spond to an encore giving, "bo much I
love " by the same composer.
A short address was then given by
Mr. Fuller the Secretary of the Y. M.
C. A. whose genial and ready wit
enlivened his speech, without detracting
from the moral of his remarks. No.
6 a duet "Friendship," by Margeals,
was a perfect little gem and sung
so beautifully by Mr. and Mrs. Thos.
R. Walker, that they found great diffi
culty iu declining an encore, and the
auaiencc was nor quieiea unui Mrs. ii.
P. Adams commenced reading a choice
selection, so exquisitely, as to enlist the
symphathics of her hearers, until some
eyes were wet with tears.
No 8 Piano and Violin duet
"Cavatina," by Raff, was almost faultlessly
rendered by Mrs. Hanford and
Prof. J. W. Yarndley, and received a
hearty encore, when they gave
"Abschied" by Ernest and Heller.
No 0 A short address by Rev. A.
D. Miller, was greeted with a storm of
appiause, especially 111s auusions 10 me

by Louis Diehl, was next on the pro
gramme and was sung by Miss Bertha
von Holt so charmingly as

an encore when she gave a Scotch song

greeted with even greater applause.
sung by Mr. Theo. H. Davies,
touched the right chord in the hearts
of the man-of-war's men, who made the
building fairly ring with their claps and
cheers, so Mr. Davies had to respond
and gave "As I'd nothing else to do" as
The closing piece of this part of the
entertainment deserves special mention
being a chorus by several ladies, under
the leadership of Prof. Yarndley. The
selection was the Bridal Chorus,
from Lohengrin "Faithful and True."
The blending of the voices in their
several parts was so perfect and
the melody so exquisite that too
much praise cannot be awarded
to the vocalists and the conductor,
Prof. Yarndley, who has shown what
skillful training of good voices can
accomplish. Mr. Davies then announced
that refreshments would be
served and the writer left as a bevy of
fair ladies by the young men
were busily engaged in distributing
cakes, and other goodies which
doubtless, were fully appreciated by the
jolly tars, as well as by the large and
select audience in attendance.
The Election of Jeffcrion Ivlt.

meeting, or the election of Jefferson

posdd to the election of Mr. Davis.
His own State (Mississippi) was opposed
to him, and if the vote has been
cast by delegates rather by States, Mr.
Toombs says, he could never have
been elected. ."Carolina," he says,
"was for Davis all the time." He
suited the extreme views of that State,
and Mr. Rhett held the delegates well
in hand, Florida had only three votes.
One of these (Anderson) was an old
schoolfellow of Davis and Owens was a
Carolinian and under the influence of
Rhett. They outvoted the third dele
