The King's Chamberlain. On Thursday last,

Death of Judge Lilikaxani. This well-known
and highly esteemed Hawaiian gentleman died some-,
what euddenly in this city on Thursday last, ne
had accompanied the Royal Party on the recent tour
to Hawaii and Maui, being in usual health until
Monday last at Lahaina, when he complained of head
ache and pain in the breast. His disease is pro
nounced to have been congestion of the longs. Mr.
Lilikalani occupied the post of District Justice at
Koloa, Kauai, and he had in former years sat as a
Representative from that Island. We learn that
His Majesty had contemplated giving him the ap
pointment of Governor of Kauai. He was about 50
years of age.
jZES' Items of local neics, appearing in the Gov

Director, or by his " itemizer," must be read with
much allowance, as regards place, time, cr circum-
ol.nro A r;rrrft rpoortl or events at heme does
not appear to be of mucn " importance to the
Gazette man, which accounts for the incorrectness
of many of the local items in that paper. For
instance, t'ae " Oahu Evangelical Association " did
not hold a regular meeting to dismiss " Mr. G. W.
Pilipo from the pastorate of Kaumakapili Church;"
nor did Mr. Robert Thurston " bathe in the sea at
Kaneohe, Oahu nor did the Gazette man see " a
cartoon got up a few days since by Jack Rees
nor wa3 it the Benecia that was " literally covered
with lights and lanterns "on Tuesday night last,
but the Ceylon; and so on, we might proceed to
enumerate a few more of the errors of our cotem
porary. that are of some importance to a reading

SurBEJiE Court. During Thursday and a part of
yesterday, Chief Justice Allen and Associate J ustice
Harris occupied the bench and the case of the con
tested will of His late Majesty Lunalilo came up on
appeal for trial by a native jury. The verdict,
rendered yesterday forenoon, confirmed the will and
codicil, with the exception cf the fourth clause of the
latter, which provides for the maintenance of the
proposed asylum out of the avails of the estate
beyond the sum of 25,000. It is a question as to
whether the rejection of that clause will benefit the
contestant One case was tried yesterday by a for
eign jury that of E. O. Hall, Minister cf the Inte
rior, vs. Geo. C. Siders and Geo. Wetherbee, for the
forfeiture of Bond of retail spirit license. V erdict
was rendered for the plaintiff, and exceptions noted.
In two cases of The King vs. Wm. Hughes, for Bell

Honolulu, April 17th, 1874.
The Rioters Sentenced.
On Wednesday last iu tfce Supreme Court, the
forty-one persons convicted during the previous
week of having participated, with more or less of
criminality, in the riot of February last, were
brought up and sentenced. Four were sentenced
to imprisonment for Eve years each ; five to three
years ; cue to two years : and three to eighteen
months. Twenty-seven were condemned to pay
fines varying from one dollar up to two hundred.
Iu discharging the native jury Mr. Associate
Justice Harris addressed them as follows :
Gentlemen: Your labors during the term have
been most arduous. The occasion which gave rise
to the trials ia which you have performed so im
portant a part, was a grievous one to all friends to
this nation. But as in human affairs, evil 13 mixed
with good, so likewise there is no evil without
some good mixed with it. The quietness, good
order and decorum with which these trials have
gone on. has given assurance that good order reigns
amongst the people, and that public opinion will
justify no man and no combination of men in the
disturbance of the public peace.
If the disturbance shall have the effect to repress
wrong teaching and to make the people to appre
ciate the blessings of good government and order,
and to understand that liberty can only be retained
by ccnfoiming to th? law, and by obedience to the
constituted authorities the liot will not be with
out its good effect.
in the meantime your country may well congrat
ulate itself upon the diligenae, calmness and delib
eration, with which you have investigated these
cases, and the discrimination of which you have
given evidence in your verdicts. It does not
appear to me that any of those who have been
convicted can possibly think that all the evidence
and every circumstance in their favor has not been
duly weighed by you, whilst in looking upon the
acquittals, I can truly say that there ha3 been in
all of them at least a reasonable doubt, and your
verdicts have been equally creditable to you.

FKOM OXTR srEClAL COKRDfrONDENT.
Oar ac:unt closc-J lst week with tLe arriv' of
the Kijml party at Makena, cn L-a-t Maui the lanl
iag place cf Capt. Mks planUtion, on TuesJaj,
April Ttb. Ia or Jinary weather, a very gool uni-
in? raav be male here cn a wharf Luut open the
I rocks, anl the anchorage '; w-thin bail from the
1 Gov. Kar-ena, who had ccme rcunl from Lahaioa,
j met the party here, and their Mijwties the King an J
Queen landed at S o'clock r. m. and were received
with cheers from the people wh had assemble! from
j the plantation three miles inland, and from.tLc.iB-
mediate neighborhood cf Makena. Some eighty
torch-bearers esccrted the King to the residence cf
Capt. Makee, which was reached at about 10 o'clock.
The reception here was quite as enthusiastic as at any
point on the journey hitherto, and the peculiarity
was that it came from one individual and his imme
diate family the worthy proprietor cf Ulopalakna.
The main entrance to the grounds surrounding the
mansion, was surmounted with an illumination bear.
iDg the words " Welcome to the King," in red let
ters, bordered with sprays of pine-leaves. Ia every
direction, inside and outside the houses, were profuse
decorations cf flowers, maile, ferns, etc. A Beat tut
roomy cottage was set apart for the use of their Maj
esties, and here the party remained in the enjoymeut
of the liberal hospitality cf Capt. Makee until Friday
the 10th inst. In the interim, a large feast in the
native style was spread under the shade of the noble
trees near the mansion; a ball was given, t which
the early hours of the morning saw the dance still
going on ; and space was afforded to visit and exam
ined all the points of interest on and about this
THE MAGNIFICENT FLOWkR GARDEN
In front of the mansion, is deservedly the pride of
the lady of the house. Here in wonderful profusion
is a wealth of choice and rare plants and shrubs,
from every clime, that is quite bewildering. A mag
nolia was in full bloom, its splendid flowers ten
inches in circumference, filling the air with its fra
grance. Roses were not in season, but varieties of
fuchsias, lilies, pinks, pansies, violets, and nameless
beauties without number, attracted the eye at every
turn amidst the labyrinth of walks. The garden is
on an incline, the walks cemented, and iu rainy
weather the water runs off in covered drains and
helps to fill the huge cisterns below the road, where
are stored supplies of the necessary fluid against a
THE MAKEE PLANTATION.
Our space will not permit on the present occasion
an extended description of this, perhaps the largest
and most expensive sugar estate on the islands, but
we hope on some future occasion to do it justice.
Its annual product is about one thousand tons,
mostly of No. 1 sugars, and it employs about 150
hands. The boiling works are very costly and ex
tensive, everything being of the latest and most im
A great work has been accomplished here in tree
planting. Not less than 150,000 trees, mostly eu
calyptus cf thirty diflerent varieties, and many
pines, have been set out on the estate. The cyclone
which swept over the islands several years ago de
stroyed many of these trees, but those now growing
thriftily will number not far from 120,000, of vari
ous heights, from five to thirty feet. Baeides the
young forest near the mansion, the tops of tho
neighboring hills are crowned with groves, that im
part a picturesque air to the scenery. One of these
hills, perhaps a half a mile from the mill, is called
Frospect Hill, and affords a fine view of the planta
tion and the whole broadside of East and West
Maui. The carriage road around this hill is con
structed with much labor, and winds gradually to
the top, a height of probably not far from 600 feet
above the surrounding country. Tho site of the
mill itself i3 some 4,000 feet above the level of
the sea. '
On the estate is a church building, comfortably
furnished with seats for worshipers, and provided
with an altar and an organ. And appropriately
placed on a hill below the mansion. m-K.J-
groves or pine ana cypress, stands the family mau
soleum, a handsome specimen of architecture. . This
provision for the end of life would seem to show that
the worthy proprietor of Ulupalakua has indeed
" driven his 6takes " here in Hawaii nei, and looks
nowhere else for an earthly habitation. Of him
with truth it can be said, that whatever of wealth he
has accumulated here is used here for the benefit of
the country, and not carried abroad to be expended.
His Majesty's party was indebted to Capt. Makee
for a comfortable rest at his beautiful estate, and their
entertainment was on a scale of princely hospitality.
At 10 o'clock on the morning of Friday, the 10th
inst., they took horse, and bidding good-bye to their
kind hosts started forth on the road to
There were over a hundred horsemen in the train
at the start. The distance from Ulupalakua to Wai
luku in a straight line, is said to be 20 miles. The
day was fine, the sun without a cloud, and the ride
to Kalepolepo, which was reached by 12 o'clock, was
fatiguingly hot. At this point a deputation was met
from Wailuku, consisting of over a hundred horse
men. These opened to the right and left, cheering
the Royal party as it passed through, and then
brought up in the rear, the cavalcade now consisting
of some 300 horsemen. Across the plains towards
Waikapu, the trade winds were met, and with the
wind came clouds of dust mingled with sand that
burned when it touched the face. Reaching at length
the plantation buildings on Mr. Cornwell's estate,
the dust infliction ceased, and here, spanning the
road, was an arch, with the words, " Aloha na Wai
ehu ia Kalakaua." Here a crowd of the people were
gathered and cheered His Majesty as he rode along.
Two other arches were met, spanning the bridges be
tween Waikapu and Wailuku, on which were in
scribed, Kalakaua," and, The Throne is founded
on Justice." In Wailuku itself, which was reached
at 2 r. m. , from the Good Templars' Hall onward the
florol arches were numerous, with appropriate in

repeatedly and enthusiastically. -,?
At Wailuku their Majesties were entertained at the5.
residence of the Hon. Mr. Kuihelani, and also at that j
of Mr. Samuel Farker. During the afternoon, the
people came in crowds to bring their hookupu gifts,
and to get a glimpse at their Majesties. In the even

A GRAND BALL
At fhe Good Templars' Hall, which waa attended by .
their Majesties the King and Queen, the Princess Ly

of the Bxyal party generally.:. The Hall was very
handsomely decorated.with evergreens and brilliantly
lighted, and was well filled with the beauty and
fshion of Wailuku (which by the way, is fast aspir
ing to displace Lahaina as " the second city of the
Kingdom," in point of wealth and population.) A
bountiful supper was provided, and the ball, which
lajted until long past midnight, was voted by all, a
grand success. : '
THE IGNIS rATTTS.
Some time after arriving at Wailuku, His Majeety
inquired for Gov. Kanoa, who had not yet put in an
ajpearance. Some one had seen him when the cav
afcade left Ka'epolepo, and it was thought that per
hps he had stopped to rest on the road. But when
he did not appear cn the next morning, messengers
were sent in search of him. During the forenoon,
he arrived pretty well exhausted, haviDg got bewil
dered on the plains and ridden all night. He de
clared that becoming separated from the party, he
bad followed what he thought was the road until
nightfall, when seeing a light in the distance which
he supposed proceeded from a house he rode towards
it, only to find it to disappear, while in another
direction a new light appeared, which also in turn
eluded his search, and so on, he was the victim of
the tni't fatuut said to be frequently teen at night
on the plains of Kamacmao.

other cflkials of Maui and escorted to the Court
House, ami Jit the cheers of the people, who were
present in crowds. The party uiade their head
quarters at the large house belonging to Gov. Nahao

present their hockupu an I to pay their respects to
their Majesties. At noon, the Protestant Church if
Waince was filled to overflowing with the populacr,
who were addressed by His Majesty as follows:
Teople of Lahaina : Before addressing to you
the brief remarks which I propose to make 00 this
occasion, I cannot omit referring to some memories of
my late laineuted Predecessor, who tuadeashort visit
here last year, on tho journey which he undertook
for the benefit of his health. The late King was
deeply solicitous for the welfare of his people, tut the
condition of his health was such that lie was uuaU
to carry ont his plans for their good. I regarded
the late King and his two immediate predecessors
with strong aUection, for on these sands ami among
these fields cf Lahaina, they and I have pUyed to
gether as boys, in the family of our grandmother,
lioapili Wahiue. The recollections of those day long
past come before mo vividly now.
"And now I have come hither to see you, ns my
children, and that you may look upon me as your
father. I thank you much, people of" the district of
Lahaina, for the very warm and loyal reception which
you have given us, one which neither myself, the
Queen nor the members of the Uoynl Family can
cease to remember with pleasure.
" The trincipal object which I have had iu view In
making this journey laniotig my people, is that we
may all be incited to renewed exertions fur the ad
vancement and prosperity of our nation, the extinc

dying race. But shall wc bit still, nnd indolently see

rn ine evening, their Majesties and euite attended
a ball and supper at the mansion of Henry Tnrton.
Esq., one of the proprietors of tho Pioneer Mill.
The party was escorted to tho ball by somo three
hundred torch-bearers. Lahaina probably has not
seen for years so brilliant an assemblaee as graced
the Turton mansion on tbo night of the 13th. The
house and grounds were brilliantly illuminated,
the night was still and clear, and Berger's band
discoursed sweet music until about 3 o'clock,
when tho Royal party re-embarked on the Kiluuea,
and at a quarter past four she was underway for
A few minutes past six, the steamer came to
anchor off this place, nearly opposite Lahaina. His
Majesty went ashore here, and saw tho people who
gathered to the number of several hundreds. The
usual speeches were made and presents brought,
and after a stay of about an hour, the party re
turned to the steamer, which at once steamed off
for Kalanpapa. We had no time to spare, for
Honolulu would expect us by 10 o'clock that
night. What wo saw at the Leper Establishment
is fully related in another place
The steamer left Kalanpapa, Molokai, at 3 p. m..
on the 14th. We had little or no wind during the
passage, and the sea was smooth, but there was a
strong current setting to the eastward and we did
not reach the dock at Honolulu until 11 o'clock.
At about 8 o'clock, we got the Ert intimation of the
in he shape of fire works and illumination with
which the capital city welcomed the return of the
King. This whb a bonfire on Makapuu. As Koko
Head came into sight, first one, and then five
blazing fires were seen to crown its summit.
From Koko to Diamond Head, were ten bonfires,
and then as we rounded the Head and Honolulu
came ia sight, the numerous lights were quite
bewildering, and in the darkness of the night had
the appearance of a great city. As we neared
the outer buoy, the multiplicity of the lights from
boats and bonSre3 on the shore was such that
for a time, it was really a puzzle to say where to
find the entrance to tho harbor. Here the KUauea
was met by the steam launch of the Bvnicia
having in tow six boats in two lines with torch
lights, the eighty bearers of which gave us three
rousing cheers, and this procession escorted us into
the passage. In the brief time that elapsed until
the dock was reached, it waa difficult to locate
the numerous and different illuminations that lit
up the shore, from Wa'.kiki to Kewalo and
thence all around to Kawa and the Prison. As
we got abreast the U. S. S. Ji'-ni'sia. which until
now showed only mast-head lights, she. was sud
denly brought into boll relief with blazing blue, red
and green fires, that burned brilliantly, while two
beautiful rockets went up from her deck, and the
band on the Kilaueu gave "The Star SpangledBan
ner." The dock was one blaze of torches, while
rockets and Roman candles were going off in various
directions, notably from ijie American bark Ceylon,
Capt. Woods, whose rigging was strung with glass
lanterns. Looming high above and away in tho
rear, was Punchbowl, its highest peak surmounted
with a blazing crown, forty fet from the ground, be
neath which in letters cf fire were the words Ka
Moi. Near the end of the steamship wharf, was an
illuminated arch, the colors of which were red, white
and blue, aad bearing the words' Welcome to our
King, Kalakaua" and Me ka nani 0 Kalakaua."
The wharf itself was densely crowded with people,
who, as the steamer reache 1 her berth gave ringing
cheer3 that might have done honor to Anglo-Saxon
threats. And now appeared another novelty. The
carriage provided for the occasion had been draped
all over with flags, and their Majesties being seated
therein, it was drawn by some fifty school-boys
through the streets to the Palace, the Princess Lydia
and Gov. Dominis following in an open Sedan chair
borne on the shoulders of men, whilo ou either side
and preceding and following; vrcte numerous torch
bearers. From the wharf to Iolani, the streets were

I anull notice two or three statements with rwct
to distance's, heights, Ac , that have appeared in
print of late, . ..
In speaking cf the peed of one of our Maud
craft, the distance from this harbor to Barber's
Point was stated to b 19 mile. The true distance
from the Honolulu light-house to the signal 00 the
extreme end of Barber's Point, (Laeloa) is la round
numbers S3 .500 feet, or a little less than 11 nautical
miles, or sixteen statute utiles, the former being rf
courne ued for all estimates cf speed at sea. It may
be a died here that from the light-house to the sum.
mit of Diamond Head, (Leahi) ia just four aca miles;
thence to Koko Head (not "Coco") Is six more;
thence to Makapuu four more; so that a vessel com
ing down the North Molokai Channel sails fifteen
uiileo, allowing for the uccasary detour at sea, frm
the extreme eart point of this if land to the entrance .
of Honolulu harbor.
In a report of the rain-fall in Nuuanu valley the
Rev. L. Smith's residence was spoken of as shout
COO feet above the sea. One hundred and seventy
five would probably be nearer the truth. A few fig-
urea here may be of intercet. Tho corner of Kukui '
and Nuuanu streets is 12 feet above the swTjfc f
School and Nuuauu streets, 40 feet; the second
bridge, 77 feet, (the same as Punabou); Judd street
about 105; tho eutranee to the Paty premises, 210
feet; Queen Kalama's, 850 feet; and the Pali, 1,220
foot. It will be seen that a COO foot level would
strike somewhere ia the neighborhood of the Ilille
brand milk rank. Punchbowl Hill furnishrs a good
standard of comparison for moderate heights, bring
just five hundred feet, lacking one fovt and a half
at its highest point. A good standard for a wile's
distance on a road is the following : Front the gate
of the Catbolio cemetery to tb Pawaa bridge
(McCully's corner) is an exact statute tulle.
The crater of HaleakaJa (which does not mean
" house of the sun ") is repeatedly stated to be
twenty-seven miles ia circumference, giving to read
ers an idea of a diameter of nine miles. This crater
which is shaped like an , or perhaps a moderately
crook-necked squaeb, is erven miles In length by '
three in wiJtli. Its entire periphery, including the
width of the Kaupo and Koolau "Gaps" where
they leave the crater walls, is nineteen miles, the
reader ia referred to Prof. Alexander's good map of
this celebrated crater, photographic copies of which
are Tor sale in town.
The above figures are all reliable, being mostly
from government survey data.

Mn. Editor : Permit me to send you a short ar
ticle, taken from the N. V. .Sun, on "Diveiaity vs.
Speciality in Agriculture." In my late lecture, de
livered by you in Honolulu, I advocated " tyraity
in agriculture" as ono of the great desiderates to
advance this country in prosperity and Independence,

experience proves that those countries which diversi
fy their husbandry to meet their ordinary wants, are
more independent and prosperous than thoae that
di-peml on a Tew special crops or productions', nud '
are obliged to purchase many of the necessaries of
life. A orir crop s'IiJikI to the productive Industry

Instance beet culture in 1'rance aud Germany. This
production ia France alona saves ber 50,000,000,
and does not interfere with her general agriculture ;
in fact, she grows more beef and dairy products, and
also more grain than before beet culture commenced.
The thrift of England aud Soot land nearljrintains
in food a population of some 21,000,000, ujn a leas

this great variety of agricultural products, the devo

immense earnings in manufactures to make up the
deficiency. California, wbcro gold, the tnessure of

their home wealth has increased. It is the surplus

Wanted An Agricultural Society.
Mau, April 2d, 1874.
To the Klilor of the J'anifm (bmmrrcial Advertiser: '
It is with much satisfaction that! notice that an :
effort is being made to wake the Kotal Agrictl- '
tubal Society into active life; and tincyely ?l
that the near future will show that tlTre is faith
enough left in the value of systematic eflurt, to ia
duoe individuals interested in agriculture here to
join together for the purpose of increasing the num
ber and value of our products.
Without caring one iota for the reasons that
caused the old Association to droop and die, I would
like to give a few why it should be resuscitated.
In the first place there is an opportunity present
ed, through the medium of Society correspondence,
for imparting much useful information to all in re
gard to experiments made in various directions.
There are but few people on the islands, more
especially in the rural districts, who are not directly
and in many cases warmly interested in tree-plant-ing.
And yet, beyond certain vague rumors of fine
groves of trees here or a yoong plantation there, we
know very little what measure cf euccess or failure
has been the reward cf those who have tried to in
troduce foreign trees on tho islands. We would all
like to know how many and what kind cf trees Lave
been set out in various districts; what are the best
kinds for different localities; what is the best method
in practical tree-planting, &c. &c.
Again, there are many districts overrun with the
" cut worm." What we want to know is what you
are going to do about it; when to plant to escape
their ravages; and I may add, what ia the most effi
cacious, concise and pungent form cf objurgation; '
what the most compact and telling liturgy to be used '
when vikiiing a field of newly sprouted vegetables
where they have been at work over night.
The Society could also obtain seeds froab and in
quantity to much better advantage than individuals
can A recent communication on this subject, touch
ing upov the practices of certain dealers in seeds
in Honolulu, brings this part cf the subject into bold
relief. . . -
There are many subjects that would come op be
fore the Society that would be cf interest though not
strictly agricultural. For instance. It Is said that v""
Captain Makee has a Urge number cf Eucalypti on
his plantation. Why hot uot send then fsr.fba
Lusated IIoset-Eateb, (Mtlithreptf It inula tut) a
beautiful bird that builds almost exclusively in these
trees. Its nest is pensile aud very handsome; the
bird itself is a very pretty one and useful. Other
birds, some beasts, net the kind Mr. Waterbonse
wants though, few reptiles, eto., would be useful
additions to the fauna of the islands.
We rant to know also all about Angora Goats; '
and it woald be interesting to know how they get
along hers. But I do not think there Is any cca
sion for at to enumerate any more wants; they are
all comprised la one; want an. active Agricul-1
tural Society. OCCAIIOS AL.
