II. 11. II. Mrs. Domi.ms left on Monday last
fur San Francisco, on board the St. Paul, for a
eFiort eojourn in California, accompanied by His
Ex. Governor Dominia, and quite a number of
residents as comparnoms du voyage. On embark
ing Her Highness was saluted bj the U. S. ship
Pensacola, and the battery on Punchbowl. A
large concourse of spectators natives and for
eigners assembled to witness the departure of the
To any person at all familiar with our system
of jurisprudence, the necessity of a Probate Law
is apparent. So long ago as 1863, the late R. II.
Stanley at the instance of the then Minister of
the Interior, Prince Kamehameha, prepared a
very full and elaborate Probate Act, but which
was never acted upon, and the Ms. was myste
riously lost. Our present law relating to probate
matters is a mere skeleton, and is deficient in the
most common as well as the most important de
tails. Too much is left to judicial discretion,
without any precedents on which to base adjudi
cation. It is true our Supreme Justices, at
Chambers, have been compelled to adopt a system
of practice which, while it has in a great degree
supplied the deficiency iu statutory enactments,
at the same time makes more apparent the neces
sity of a Probate Law, clearly regulating the
practice on that most important branch of our
beneficial nature ; while those who have had the
sagacity and forethought to surround their
dwellings and outhouses with a row or two of
ehade trees escape the serious inconveniences of
the fierce summer sun and the sweeping winds of
winter. The man who follows this course is
very soon rewarded for the labor expended by
the increased comfort which speedily surrounds
his family and home. The additional value to a
homestead so Bituatcd will be appreciated by the
owner who desires to sell, when he finds that for
this sole reason the would-be purchaser is willing
to offer much more favorable terms. The far
mers who plant these protective belts will find
that they have added from ten to twenty-five per
cent, to the productive capacity of their farms,
and their growing timber, if of . the right sort,
will give an added value to their lands in ten or
fifteen years of fully twenty-five per cent, while the
thinnings from the timber will more than com
pensate them fox the labor expended in the cul
tivation. These facts seem sufficient to induce
every owner of land.to engage in the cultivation
of timber upon bis premises; but if we add to
them the effects in a sanitary view the argument
becomes still more conclusive.
In the first place it is self-evident that a boun
tiful supply of water is necessary to the comfort
and health of every community. An eminent
German writer (Ebcrmayer) has deduced the
following result from his meteorological observa
tions on forestry :
" If from the soil of an open space 100 parts
of water evaporate, then from the soil of a forest
free from underwood 38 parts would evaporate,
and from a soil covered with underwood only 15
parts would evaporate."
This simple fact explains very clearly why the
cutting down of wood over tracts of country is
The Government of India has offered a prize of
$25,000 for the Lest machine or process for prepar
ing rhea, or ramie-fibre; also a prize cf $5,000 for
the second best. The conditions of winning the prize
are that the machine or process shall be capable of
producing by animal, water or steam power, one ton
of dressed fibre at a tctal cost not to exceed 75 in
India, or $150 in England. The machines must be
in readiness at Saharanpar by August 15, 1879.
What has become of the Hawaiian Ramie Machine
exhibited at the Mechanics' Fair in San Francisco in
1875 ? We would suggest to friend Coleman that he
send his machine to Saharanpar. Should he do so,
it would not at all surprise us if he bore off the palm.

The Commission, consisting of Messrs. E. Preston,

ported a full revised Code at the session of 1876.
It was reported in both the English and Hawai
ian languages, at an expense of 6ome $1,500 to
the government. The last Legislature only acted
upon a few of the important laws reported; but
there was a full and complete Probate Law re

appears strange. It was carefully translated, and

Dear Sir : I hope you wit parion me troubling you, but
having heard a report that I tuve acted unjustly toward the
Kawaiahao Church, I wish to vindicate myself from such re

Hall to give my entertainment in. I immediately applied to
the Church authorities, who granted me the use of the same

would also remain over another steamer to give a benetit con

Letter irom Wailukn.
Though there have bee a some refreshing showers
here of late, and rains on the mountains sufficient
for a good supply cf water for irrigating the cane
fields, jet the pastures are so dried up that the poor
cattle are djing at the rate of one or two a day.
When I see the beautiful streams running through
the town, I exclaim, " What would the people of
Kau give for such streams !" Where water is abund
ant it is lightly prized, while in some parts a small
stream is considered of more value than thousand
From the long continued droneht. we hear that
Capt. Makee is likely to lose a large part cf his pres
ent crop; while at Kau the prospect is Tery gloomy.
Wailcka claims to be the second city of the Hawa
iian Islands. Ia some respects it has the advantage
of Uilo. It has a telegraph by which messages may
be sent to Haiku, and an operator is at the station
three times a day to transmit telegrams. It is ex
pected that the wire will be continued on to Labaina,
r rom the extensive cane fields in and around the
village, there seems to be more life and activity, and
it ia claimed here that the natives are more enter
prises "J industrious than ia any other place on
the islands. Then the white inhabitants are more
numerous at Ililo, about twice as many, I think.
Here there are many carriages, while at Uilo. on ac
count of the execrable roads, hardly a carriage is to
be seen. Here is a great lack of rain, so that for
months the pastures dry up. and herds suffer from
lack of grass. At the present time, oxen are dying
at the rate of one or two a day. At Hilo. there ia
grass enough ; but cattle will almost starve before
they will eat it.
From time to time during tho past six or seven
years, we bavs presented in these columns the
views of scientists and the results of observa
tions by meteorologists on the subject 6et forth
in the beading of this article. In view of the
already disastrous drought that has prevailed in
various parts of our ielanda duriDg the past three
months, we offer no apology for again presenting
the subject for the consideration of our readers,
with the hope that an aroused public opinion may
have the effect to influence needed legislation on the
culture and preservation of our forests. That
forests and vegetation affect the climate of the
earth's surface cannot be doubted for a moment
by those who have given the least thought or
examination to the subject. We hardly need to
point out to our readers those countries once the
abode of swarming millions who formerly repre
sented the arte, arms, science and civilization of
mankind, but which are now only scenes of desola
tion, treeless, barren, desert wastes of sand, tra
versed by wandering tribes of men but little
removed from the degradation of 6avage life.
The eastern and southern shores of the Medi
terranean and countries adjacent may, however,
be specified as the most striking example we
have of the effect produced upon the climate of
any giveu region by the destruction of its forests
and vegetation. Every school-boy reader of his
tory knows that Persia, Arabia, Palestine,
EoJF1 Carthage, and countries now bounded by
the great Sahara, were the seats of the civiliza
tion and learning of ancient times : and the ex
plorations of modern travelers among the ruins
of their buried cities attest the splendor and
magnificence to which they had attained. Spain
and Greece, with the Mediterranean, Canary,
Cape de Verd and Madeira Islands afford exam
ples nearer our own day of the terrible effects of
such vandalism, and warn us of our own fate in
the not distant future if we continue to disregard
the solemn lessons which they afford.
The public mind abroad is fully aroused to the
importance of this subject, and in some countries
notably Germany and some of the States of
America legislative action has been invoked to
protect future generations from the evil sure to
be wrought by the destructive tendencies of the
present age. The simplest, most effective and only
remedy consists in the planting and protection of
forest trees ; and it is a wise economy that wonld
upon our children by so doing. This point needs
no further elucidation.
In India, the home of cholera, much impor
tance has been attached in recent times to plan
tations as preventives of it. It has been always
observed that the villages in wooded districts
suffer less than those in treeless plains. Many
instances of this are given in the reports of Dr.
Bryden, President of the Statistical Office in
Calcutta, and Dr. Murray, Inspector of Hos
pitals. Dr. Bryden states, in his work on
' Epidemic Cholera in the Bengal Presidency,
1869," that in the villages in the plain of Raj
poor, 60 or 70 per cent of the inhabitants are
sometimes swept away by cholera in three or
four days, while the wooded district of Sambal
poor is often free from it, or it is much lees
severe. Medical men, whose experience entitles
them to speak with authority on this point, we
believe coincide in the opinion that an open
country euffers much more severely in a visita
tion of this terrible epidemic than those regions
where a fair proportion of the original forests
has been suffered to remain.
There is no doubt that trees, plants and shrub
bery affect the conformation of the soil, with
which our general health is in many respects
connected, and are beneficial in other ways,
among which may be mentioned, their cooling
shade in summer and diminishing the winds of
winter, and clouds of dust. We learn from Eber
mayer, (above quoted) that the temperature of
the trees in a forest, and even in the tops of
them, ia always lower than the air in the forest.
The proofs of the beneficial influence of forests
and shrubbery upon the water supply and gen
eral comfort and consequent health of the people
can be multiplied almost without end. We
think our community are united in this view,
afid require no further illustration of this partic
ular point; yet we will add that numerous facts
are cited by the Australian explorer, Lands
borough, which go to prove that dense forests are
on the increase in Australia ; that the climate is
growing moister, and that even the great central
desert may, in course of time, become inhabita
ble. The frequency of fires, prior to the intro
duction of ebeep-farmiDg, when there was noth
ing to keep down the grass, was terribly destruc
tive to trees and to all vegetation.
An act was passed by our Legislative Assem
bly of 1876, which was a step in the right direc
tion, so far as it went. It was Btyled ' An Act
for the Protection and Preservation of Woods
and Forests;" and the preamble recites that, It
is an established fact that the destruction of for
ests in any country tends to diminish the supply

Outx Ccltube. We have no doubt that the

us as pointing out the most feasible method for
us to pursue. In those States which Lave taken
legislative action the method pursued has been to
protect the joung trees planted by the roadside,
granting a bonus per hundred for thrifty trees at
a certain age, planted at a specified distance, and
and a smaller bonus, (the individual benefit
being more direct) for plantations of growing
trees, which have attained a stated height, on
farms or tracts of land before destitute of forests.
This seems to us the best way in which the ini
tial steps can be taken, for the reward to the
planter, though small is immediate, and in a
little time the benefits he receives will induce
him to continue the good work without looking
to the State for further recompense.
What a barren aspect the treeless plains
between the mountains and the seashore presents
to the wearied eye of the traveler around our
islands ! And what gives Honolulu such a beau
tiful appearance on approaching it from the sea,
but the abundance of vegetation in which it is
enshrined ? Of the delight of the cooling shade
of trees in a tropical clime we need not speak,
for everybody appreciates that. But we wish
particularly to call attention to the facts which
observation has demonstrated in those countries
where attention has been more directly pointed
to the subject.
It cannot be controverted that the effect upon
young and growing crops on farms surrounded
by shelter belts and lines of trees, is of the most
While all due praise is cheerfully accorded to
Paine for what he did in behalf of human freedom
and to bring about the independence of the United
States, there are serious charges brought against
him by various individuals who should be regarded
as competent witnesses. Of his infidelity and of his
efforts to destroy the foundations of religion and
virtue there is no doubt; and the history of his lat
ter years serves as illustrations of his priociples.
" Cleanliness is next to godliness," is an old prov
erb. How much connection there is between an im
pure heart and a filthy life, I do not pretend to say.
Bishop Fenwick, who visited him, represents him as
besmeared with filth. Wm. Carron, a brother infi
del, with whom Paine boarded eighteen months as
serts that he found him in a most miserable condi
tion. He appeared as though he had not been
shaved for a fortnight; he bad on only the remains
of a shirt, and this neatly or the color of tanned
leather, while he had the most disagreeable smell
possible. Justice " affirms in the Gaztle of March
6th that this and other charges have been refuted a
thousand times. But what testimony does he bring
forward to substantiate his assertion ? "Justice"
well says, when we wish to learn about a man, we
ask his friends not his inveterate enemies." Very
true; but we go to those friends who were intimate,
and not to those who gained all their knowledge of
him from hearsay: and who of all Paine's intimate
friends ever denied that in his later years he became
a disgusting sot T We want names, evidence from
those who can testify what they have seen. A sim
ple denial does pot satisfy.
If the charges of filthineas and drunkenness shall
be disproved, wa shall be disposed to believe that the
other charges are without foundation. Auqcib.
