New Adveetisemkxts. Money spent by enter

Olowalu Tlamatiox. A notable transaction
the past week has been the sale cf a cue-half inter
est in the Olowalu Sugar Plantation, r.ear Lahaina!
This enterprise was commenced only two years ago,
by Messrs. Philip Milton and Goodale Armstrong,
cn a barren piece cf ground, but which, to the prac
tical eyes cf tbe projectors, possessed great natural
advantages for the culture of cane. Some people
lauched and mid it would be a failure. But we are
pleased to-day to chronicle the fact that Olowalu
Plantation is valued at $210,000, Mr. Milton Lav
ing sold his one-half interest for (he snug sum cf
SlOo.OoO. This wonderful enhancement in values
will not perhaps be understood abroad; even when
we state that Olowalu is a second Lthaina as to rich
ness and depth of soil, and that the supply of water
for irrigation purposes is inexhaustible. In another
column will be found the announcement of dissolu
tion of the firm of P. Milton Si Co. To the new ad
ministration cf this second ' bonanta" cf West
Maui, we wish every success.
Revival or the Teleceai-u. We congratulate
the business community and public generally upon
the fair prospect that the telegraphing of vessels ap
proaching the port is about to be resumed. Tbe
cessation of the former system, rude as it was, oc
casioned a good deal of complaint, for the public
bad come to consider it not only a convenience but
a necessity. Preparations are now being made to
re-establish the telegraph from the outer station near
Diamond Head, which will be done by telephone,
instead of the semaphore, the latter being liable to
interruption by a cloudy or hazy state of the atmos
phere. By the mode now projected, a line of wires
will be erected between Diamond Head and Hono
lulu, at the expense of Messrs. Wilder k Co. and
Messrs. II. Hackfeld & Co., and the wires will ran
directly to their respective offices, with an attach
ment extending to the Postoffice. The telephones,
with alarms, etc., are expected to arrive by the first
vessel from San Francisco, and are expected to be in
working order in about ten days. The running ex
penses of telegraphing will be paid by the Govern
ment. A bulletin board will be erected at the office
of Wilder & Co., on which everything of importance
transmitted from tbe outer station will be given for
the information of the public. Tbe new system so
superior to the one heretofore in use is sure to
ferove a success, an I the enterprising firms who have
the matter in hand are deserving of all praise.
Westward Ho !
Municipal The want of a municipal govern
ment for Honolulu was shown by a little matter
apparent to every pusser-by on Hotel street, not a
dozen blocks from Fort street, the first part of the
week. A pile of lumber completely covered the
sidewalk, one end of which extended diagonally
into the street some four or fire feet. A nice little
stumbling-block in the path of tbe unwary or near
sighted! Severe accidents even broken limbs
have resulted from much slighter causes.
Have Cake. On Saturday evening a lamp in j
the establishment of Griffin & Dwight suddenly
exploded, the oil running to the floor in a sheet of
flame. Fortunately, one of the partners extin
guished the fire before it had time to do any
damage. We notice this trifling matter to warn
the many people who ure in the dangerous habit
of leaving lamps burning in their houses when
they go out for an evening walk or a neizhborly
p Sea Serpent. Capt. Somerville. of the steamer
Durham, reports having seen a large sea monster,
resembling a serpent, off Brown's Island, coast of
New Zealand. Thirty feet of the monster -eared
perpendicularly out of the water." Tbe crew and
passengers corroborate tbe statement.
Decadence or the Whaling Business. Much
has been said and written about the decay of this
once flourishing business; but there is still some life
and animation left in it, as the following statement
shows: During the past three years New Bedford
alone has sent oat the following vessels; In 187u, 24
vessels; 1S76, 33; 1877, 39; 1S7S (to Aug. 10) 23.
There are now twelve vessels in that port, meat cf
which are fitting out for naw cruises. Advices from
sea indicate the return of twelve vessels during the
year, having on board 2,310 bbla. of sperm, and 8,
750 bbls. whale oil. There also two merchantmen,
from Honolulu and New Zealand, soon due, with 2,
159 bbls. sperm and 4,5CG bbls whale oil from the
New Bedford fleet now out. The importations into
the United States fmm Januarj 1 to Aug. 13, 1378,
from the fleet out, exceed those for the same period
of 187T, by the following figures; Sperm, 4,200 bbls.
whale, 3.1 bbls., and bone, 40,314 lbs. Thus it
would appear that the trade is rapidly recovering
from its former depression.
" Westward the Star of Empire takes its way,"
but good Bishop Herbert did not think of the Organ
Grinder when he cast his prophetic gaze towards the
setting sun. The Stars of Empire and Civilization
are twin sisters now-a-days, and both have their
satellites, the organ grinder being one of tbe most
pernicious of the latter. One of them paid our town
a visit the first of the week, but we hardly think he
will reap much of a harvest here.
Keesosne Oil. It is now becoming known that
even the best brands of kerosene oil depreciate in quali
ty by age. There are immense quantities of the most
favorite brands now in store at San Francisco, which,
from their age, are almost unsaleable if newer oil
can be obtained. These old oils are forced off at any
price, large quantities being sent in this direction.
Customers should be careful in purchasing, and buy
only of responsible parties who will not deceive them
by selling an old, and therefore inferior or dangerous

Governorships. It has been officially announce!
that His Majesty has appointed His Excellency John
O. Dominis to be Governor of the Islands of Maui,
Molokai and Lanmi, vice the late Governor, now de
ceased. Some considerable surprise was expressed
on the street at the fact that our Governor should
thus be made to do duty for two gubernatorial divi
sions, bat there is nothing wrong about it, either
legally or otherwise. With the present facilities for
frequent communication between tbe Islands there is
no reason why one person may not discharge effi
ciently the duties that in former years required two.
It is the fashion, however, on the part of those wag
gishly inclined, to salute His Excellency with
"Good morning. Governors.,
Kanmas Citv, Mo., Aug. . 1878.
I reached hen; ten days ugo, since which lime
the weather has been too hot to stir or get about
except at great inconvenience and dlricomfort, the
thermometer ranging from 'JG In 103 in the shade.
To-day I registered 113 ut five o'clock in the even

at the time. Some claim tbat it has been as high
as 120 and 123 in places. Sunstrokes are of daily
occurrence, and among the victims whose cases
proved fatal was Mr. Gilday, a resident of this
place for neaily thirty years, and formerly one of
the city fathers. Strong men in the prime of li'c
are smitten down and carried to their homes or
the hospital, to look no more upon these earthly
scenes. The nights have been but little cooler
than the days, but clear and beautiful, and we hear
of citizens all over tbe city preferring to sleep out
on the ground rutber than stay in the house. Tbe
weather always being a familiar theme upon which
to open up conversation, you see I have taken ad
vantage of tbat fact for this letter. Hut us there
is no power on earth to change the weather, I pro
pose to let Old Sol " travel on his course and

Kansas city is situated in Jackson county, on
the western border of tbe Slate, and just south of
the Missouii river, at a point where the Kaw or
Kansas river empties into tho Missouri, where the
latter takes a turn from its southeily course and
flows westerly through the centre of the Stale,
Here tbe bluff along the rirernre very prominent,
and the city perched upon these blufl is rapidly
stretching out its streets umong the hills in the
background, and with inarvelom rapidity is be
coming densely settled. Twelve years ago it num
bered but 5,000 inhabitants, but now its popula
tion exceeds 40,000, having more than doubled
with each four yeais. There is little doubt but
Kansas city must play an important part in the
commercial interests of this western country. Its
business men already realize this fact, and are full
of enterprise. Messrs. Fairbanks & Co., scale
manufacturers, see this, and are locating a repair
shop here. Kansas city now packs more beef
annually than any other city in the Union, having
last year outstripped both M. Louis and Chicago,
and her large stock yards make her pre-eminently
the stock depot of the West. "Hard time'7 do

Cady & Olrnstead, jeweler ; Hoggett A Smith,
extensive dry goods merchants, and Abernatby,
North & Onbon, furniture dealers, all spek of
tbe business they are doing in a very encouraging
manner. One may get an idea of tbe progress und
growth of the city lroin the fact that scarcely a
house tbat is tenantablu ut all cato be rented, and
no sooner is one vacated than twenty applicants
are ready to secure it. A friend told me the other
day that a neighbor was making repairs on bis
bouse, aud so frequent were the applications for
rent that be was compelled to put tbe sign, This
bouse is not for rent,1' to save further annoyance.
There is not a street, and hardly a block, but what
new buildings are going up and improvement
going on. Ou one street no les than 18 houses
are now being erected. The streets are yet in a
primitive condition in many places, and of course
do not compare with our Lau-ni cities. Tbe road
beds are made of the limestone which is abundant
iu the bills, but ol a very inferior quality. Tbe
sidewalks are planked, aud would be tolerably
passable but for the host of bogs which roum at
large all over the city and keep the walks in a
most filthy Condition. The city authorities have
finally taken the matter in hand, much to the dis
gust of tho Irish population, and alter the 27th
inst. the liberties of porkdom are to be restricted
to their own private pen. The City Council is in
a severe state of uproar and excitement over the
proposed route of the Chicago and Alton Railroad
in its city approach, and tln-re is little hope of
abatement, .ouie are anxious that the ruilroad
company should come down handsomely and pay
for all privileges and every inch of ground; on the
other baud, the railroad ha its friends, and they
are pulling every wire tbat can be handled. Three
different routes have been proposed and neither
can obtain a majority to support it, and so the bat
tle wages. Tbe city has a debt now aggregating
$1,600,000, being glO per capita for every man,
woman and child in the city.
Tbe soil here is well adapted to tbe cultivation
of tbe peach, nectarine, pear, und grape, and these
will eventually be extensively grown here, as
they find a ready market. Peaches are now rap
idly coming in und there is a good supply. There
is a scarcity of apples in this section, and they are
bringing a good price. Potatoes are plentiful and
very cheap, good early Rose bringing but twenty
five cents per bushel, and twenty cent in larger
lots, in tbe surrounding country. Living Is cheap,
and there i room und plenty for all who will
migrate this way. There is a large negro popula
