Miy that no other kind of literature has
such a fascination for boys as that of

How dianncd c have all been in
reading stories of the old adventurer,
Cabot, Krobishcr, Vasco dc Gama and

. knowledge of whatsoever kind is be
lieved to be within reach of humanity,
there will always he. those, who. taking
no thought of the cost of cither life or
means, will throw themselves into the
.fctruggle for its attainment Well for
rirneress that it is so : and unfortunate
for humanity when the spirit of " Will
it Pay ?'' shall prevail. We are not he
hind any utilitarian in the appreciation
of the comforts which practical scientific
discovery ghc to its devotees ; yet we
tlunk that the useful rcsmt3 ol any iis
comy should not weigh one iou
in the truly scientific mind. It
will most assuredly add to the
sum of knowledge, if the. North Pole
can be reached and anything which
adds to human knowledge adds to lui
mun dignity and comfort, The high
est aim of science is to acquaint man
with his surroundings his environment;
and, however we may protest against
the waste of life and of means, if the ef
fort to reach the North Pole Is deemed
possible wc should applaud the spirit
of daring and of manhood which sacri
fices its to the accomplishment of this
end. The same inquiries "will it pay?"'
"what practical good can come of it?
have been the cry of the many in all
the ages in regard to all scientific dis
coverers from Thalcs to Greeley. It
would be easy to prove that every sci
entific truth yet discovered h is been or
will be of incatcu'able benefit to hu
manity; and besides the example left
by those w ho voluntarily walk with a
firm step to the sacrifice, the "practi
cal good" resulting is ever worth the
cost With meager reports at hand,
it would be hazardous to predict the
results of the mpedition, but they are
sufficient to warrant the belief that a
point vrat rcjchcd further north than
has hitherto bceii attained by white
men. In the matter of mcterological,
barometric and theromctric data, the
. records'scem to be complete. These
facts, together with the light thrown on
the topography and electrical condition
of the auroral regions during a three
years residence, nil! be of the highest
scientilie value. Again, while giving
all sympathy to the friends and families
of the suffering and starved in the re
gions of eternal ice, let -us not fail to
bestow willingly undyint; gratitude onthe
heroic Greeley and his surviving com
panions for their example of true man

against the proposed lottery bill, both
in expostulating with its introducer

cirned the displeasure of the powers

personal attack and insult through the
court journals. This has been the
case, and that Mr. Ilishop has not been

intent of recent unwarranted conduct

popular, and particularly so with the
the native population, among whom it
is common for the eld men and women
to be the custodians of the family in

in some corner or buried in the ground
under the mats on which they sleep.
Once satisfy these household treasurers
that their funds will be safer in the
cure of the government, and earning
something for the owners, and thousands
of dollars (mostly gold) now hid away,
will be brought into circulation for the
good of the people generally. The
bill as now framed seems to be what
the country needs, and we trust it
w ill soon become a law. As a. pro
gressive measure calculated to promote
thrift among the laboring classes, both
foreign and native, it is one of the
best brought before the legislature.

citizens would have welcomed such
action as a rclkf from the sr.rt of legis
lation which the parly in power nas

Inters. The tax assessors arc far less
to blame than the powers which caused

vice to the ministerial party as has been
done lry the tax assessor representa

have been appropriate and neither
indecent nor unjust to apoinl them
tax collectors. As it is, they must
cither neglect their duties as legislators
ir their duties as tax assessors, hither
neglect is Imd the second worse than
the filstj but neither should be forced

To show the feeling in at least one dis
trict, we print the following extract

lat-payer, through no fault of his own, but of
the government official, will be denied and
deprived of the right of appeal. Such

you draw the attinliun of some lecijiator
there, to this point ? Assessors conic around

tlut they want, to get in all the ictiirns first
and strike an average 'and then Jhry will let yon
know v.itliir. such a dale,' and lhat is the end
of the matter unless you chase them up by
running all over the country for them."
Much has already been said by the
newspaper press of this city in repre
hension ol the conduct ol this years
assessments. I he fads ol the case are
too plain to admit of any doubt as to
the illegality of assessing people in the
iiriiiuer prujniseu m uiiiny districts 1111s
year ; and, through such blundering
conduct upon the part of the govern
ment, it may become in some cases a
question for our courts, whether or not
persons illegally assessed can be legally
forced to pay their taes. But, with an
administration that has become notori
ous for its evasions and open violations
of law, nothing seems now very strange
in this direction, while it may be har
rowing to the feelinas of the King's sub-
jects,,any such things do not surprise.
It one act, plainly illegal, can be done,
why not another, and so on without
limit ? There is no law authorizing
deputies to act as assessors, even if
there be none bearing directly agaist it ;
hut their is a law, based upon the pre
sumption that leprosy is a contagious
disease, which.requircs the segregation
ol its victims ; and while it might be
sufficiently indecent to appoint deputy
assessors without legal authority, the
appointment of a pronounced leper to
such a post is so manifest an outrage
of law and all sense of decency that
we iii.ty iiisiiy cxci.uru wnai next r
Mr. Samuel Kamohakati, pronounced
by Mr. George L. Fitch, regular gov
ernment physician to the Leper Hospi
tal at Kakaako, and to the government
dispensary in Honolulu, to be a leper,
is, at the same time appointed by cov-
eminent as dcpuly-ta.vasscssor at Ma-
Hawao. this man, afflicted with a
disease which the law recognized as so
dangerously contagious to the com
munity as to justify taking away the
liberty of its victims, is now a govern
ment appointee toa post requiring that
he shall mingle wilh hcalthv people in
the freest possible manner. To comment
further upon such an outrane, which
nobody but a demoralized brute could
be capable or justifying, would be su
pertluous. Incidentally, however, we
mignt say, uui tins man was among me
nine patients of the Kakaako Hospital
reported by the Advertiser as " lepers

mony given by Mr. Fitch and Mr.

against Thrum for libel, heard at the
following term of court, it was shown,
that Kumotiaknu had never been dis

Consider for a moment frwrt what It is that
the lahnrt anil Influence 6T the missionarlen
hare redeemed this people. 1 he story ii told
of one of the honorable old Hawaiian Kings,
who reerlred his first written letlei diculrd
by the mUikjtuiIrs, fi'mi his sister on another
Island. "Wondeifull Wumlerful I" he ex-
clitimetl 1 " Heretofore, when I wished to com
municate nith my sister, I had to semi a man
to her, who forgot lulflhst I told him to tell
her, and more than half she vrUhed him to tell
me In rctutn and iiow I can converse wilh
her, as It were, face to fsce." These revilers
nf the missionaries not only Ignurc all the
benefit) of education, but also the redemption
of this people from the disgusting orgies, the
grass huts, the stone fencct, the taw fish diet,
and other peculiarities of a hundred yeais ago.
Iter. Mr, Paris tells the story r.f a pious old na
tive in Kona, who encountered one of these de-
timer! nf the missionaries, representing them as
Raving done more harm than eood. "Ves,"
said 'llie old man, " If It had not been for the
missioinrles, we should have eaten you up,
The deccndints of the Missionaries com
prisebut a small portion of the patty of the
Independents. Ills not lliat they toanygrcates
tent control or influence the sayings ur iloings
of lhat party, lljt the Heathen pirty needed
to resort to something to cast a stigma, In Ihe
minds of the Ignorant masses, upon those
who arc fast acquiring the favor and esteem
of the moic intelligent nilivcs, and nearly all
of all nationalities, who have a home and
pecuniary interests on the islands, ho tlicy
dubbed llie oppodtion to the conniption ol
government, Ihe "Missionary I'atly. Iet
us accept the designation and look a little
into the significane of it..
Rev. Dr. Mc Lean, an eminent divine
from California, who recently returned home
Irom a sisittn these islands, thus describes the
parties, In an interesting letter to the Ad
vance of Chicago : " In Honolulu and
throughout the Islands there are two great anta
gonistic parlies, two social and political seg
ments, two contestant influenccsi the missionary
and the anti-missionary. These dcs.gnations arc
used in a very wide and-comprchcnsivc sense.
The missionary parly stands for, not only
religion in the technical sens;, but for mural,
ity in all its forms and degrees; for good order,
tx nnd political purity, for frugality, good
government, temperance, industry and so
briety. Thcanli-misslonary party reach out
directly and Indirectly for all the things op
posed lo these. Thsy arc anti-Sabbath,
anti-lcinperancc, and many of them are
against all purity, decency and oidcr.
Let ihe distinction between the Mission,
ary and llie Heathen parties be distinctly
"Under which king, IljsoiUn T psak or die."
Il is emineinlly fitting that the leader of the
Anti-Missionary parly should be a renegade
Mormon who, after fillins his po:kets wilh
the gepcrous contributions of the confiding
Mormons, under falsa pretences, turns hii
back up?n them, and becomes the reviler of
those who labored so long and faithfully to
change llie habits of the islanders from the
vices of heathenism to the virtues of civlliied
and Chrisiijn people. Every American must
blush that a representative of that nation
should be among thote who resile tha Mis
sionaries, and reprint them -is having done
nothing but steal the lands of ihe native
people. Djubtless.in his estimation their
desccndenls-sh.inid have imitated the shiftless
nessand thiifllessnessof so many of the natives
In heathen times.
"The Missionary Patly I " I repeat, lei
the opponents of the corruptions of the gov
ernment, and the friends of civilintion and
nroarcss, except the designation, and all il im
plies, and go on in their work of reformation
with renewed vigilcncc, grateful that iheir
opponrncnts have bestowed a title so honor

When ihe item Deputy Alt. Gen. was called,
Minister .Neumann spoke in favor of the turn
originally asked for, $9, Coo, arguing that the
office was absolutely necessary. The present
officer svas partly attorney, partly translator,
partly book-keeper. At present there was too
much woil; for one man to properly work up
crown cases. It would be ImpoMblc; to get a
competent man who would attend lo the du
ties conscientiously who would take ihe office
of attorney general unless he hid such an as
sistant; he lurthcr said there was enough work
accumulated now lo lake a coini:ie.it mm

would ery much regret If this assistant was

ties of the attorney' office was ihe obligation

Hasvaiians who deemed themselves wronged.
Mr. Dole did not see the present necessity
of a deputy attorney general. He was unable
