Doixas of a lTawaiian Conscl. A telegram
from Panama of Nov. 25, via New York Dee. 11,
contains these words: "Tbe Perurian torpedo boat,
detained by the Colombian government aa contra
band of war, baa at last sailed for Peru, flying
the Hawaiian flag and with a license from tbe Ha
waiian Consul. The Peruvians place great reliance
in the torpedo service now organizing." We are
at a loss to understand by what authority a Ha
waiian Consul abroad can license a foreign belli
gerent to fly tbe flag of his country. It would be
rather uncomfortable were the Chileans to send an
iron-clad here to take vengeance by knocking the
ugsr and molasses about our ears.
The Uai.Iformax. We nave received the'Orst
number of this new monthly from tbe publishers.
The A. Roman Publishing Company of San Fran
cisco. It is beautifully printed on extra good
paper, and contains 100 pages of entertaining and
instructive reading matter, the articles being all
original and mostly on Californian topics. In ita
prospectus the publishers say " The Californian
will be thoroughly Western in its character, local
to this Coast in ita flavor, representative and vigor
ous in its style and method of dealing with ques
tions, and edited for a popular rather than a severe
literary constituency." We had intended to par
ticularize some of the articles of this initial num
ber, but where all is so excellent it is difficult to
discriminate. Tbe Califorhian ia published al $3
per annum.
More About the Tbxatt. A Washington special
dispatch to tbe N. Y. Commercial Advtrtiter, dated
Nov. 29, after stating tlat tbe agent of the Treasury
Department sent to Honolulu bad reported that no
foreign made sugars were aent from here to San
Francisco under the treaty, says :
" There has been considerable pressure brought
to bear by sugar merchants to induce onr Govern
ment to take steps to abrogate the existing treaty,
but from the best information attainable it ia not
considered probable that this will be done.
"Tbe government loses from one to two million
dollars annually by there being no doty on the sugar
brought from tbe Sandwich Islands, bnt this waa
fully anticipated by the officials who were instru
mental in having the treaty negotiated. If the
present treaty did not exist, it ia regarded as certain
that the British Government would bave control
of the islands, and it was to prevent this and to
secure to tbe United States tbe trade of those isl
ands that tbe concession was made that all sugars
manufactured in the islands should be admitted to
the United States free of duty."
"One to two millions" annual lost ia duties, is
rather indefinite, besides it Is not true In fact.

The recent j revalence of malarial fever in
this city havic directed public attention to tbe
subject of sanitary measures, tbe question of pro
viding a general system of sewerage has been
much talked of. As a matter of course, the ab
stract faet- beinj; admitted that such a system if
properly carried out, would be an excellent thing
for the health of the city the conclusion is at
once arrived at by some that it is the duty of
government to undertake the work, irrespective
of consideration of cost or other obstacles that
might be in the way. There is indeed much to
be thought of, and carefully weighed, before an
adequate system of sewerage can be provided for
this city. There are grave engineering questions
to be met, the solution of which will tax the skill
of experienced men, not the least of which ques
tions will be, bow to dispose of the sewage. We
understand however that the whole subject has
been under consideration by the government, and
that steps have been taken to obtain plans and
In connection with the discussion of measures
for the special benefit of the capital, inevitably
comes up the question of a municipal govern
ment. While tnoat people who have lived under
municipal governments in o titer countries, wil
readily concede that this city could be better
governed and better taken care of by a Mayor
and Board of Aldermen chosen by the citizens
than by a Ministry with all the multifarious con
cerns of the country at large on ita bands, and
moreover restricted in its expenditures by tbe
biennial appropriation bill yet we question very
much if more than a respectable minority of our
citizeus would be found to vote in the affirmative
of euch a proposition if submitted to them. The
first objection in most minds would be, that a
municipal government would involve increased
taxation on rropcrtv holders in the city. The
next question that occurs, is whether fit and
responsible men could be incldoed to accept office
Our " solid " men are all in active business
occupations, would they willingly and gratuit
ously devote the time and labor required to di
rect the proper government of the city ?
As to the first objection that of increased tax
ation it by no means follows that eucb a meas
ure must be resorted to in order to provide the
means of carrying on a municipal government
The taxes on real estate and the license fees col
lected in Honolulu form no inconsiderable pro
portion of the revenues of the country, and a ccr
tain per cent, of the amount bo contributed
might be annually set apart, and made available
for tbe purposes of a city government. As to
city officers a committee of the Privy Council, a
body of able and responsible men, not by any
means over worked at present could, we opine,
be Bafely entrusted with the general management
of municipal affairs, the necessary executive
officers being paid stipulated salaries.
But whatever may bethought of these crude
suggestions, it is evident that as thia city in
creases year by year in population and enlarges
its borders, with constantly recurring questions
of a local nature, the proper government of the
city will require, if it docs not already require,
more care and attention than can possibly be
bestowed upon it by the general government
And we say this without in the slightest degree
impeaching tbe ability or the industry of tbe
present Ministry.
There will tie a foot-race on the Esplanade

For Mickonksia. The bark Hawaii, Capt Whit
ney, will sail un Monday next, at 10 a. m., Ior Ja
luit, for another lot of South. Sea Islanders. Tbe
brigaiitine Storm Bird will follow for the same
desliiiution in about a week afrer the bark.
Kona Storms. In view of our statement that the
late storm was the first "regular kona" eince 18CC,
a correspondent reminds us that there was one in
November, 1874. On referring to files we find that
there was a comparatively brief blow from tbe south
at that time, with very copious rains, nine inches
having fallen io this city within 24 hours.
Miss Zoe Gaytox, Is expected to arrive

co, and propnsex to opeu a season at the Hawaiian

arrive in time, the opening night will be postponed
to the 15tb.
Tiik TiiKATiiK. Messrs Adler und Duray took a
farewell ben-fit at the Theater on New Year's
night, and produced for tbe amusement of the au
dience on the occasion, a variety entertainment,
consisting of songs, dances and recitations. The
performance was fair, Ferrie, of tbe Lackaicanna,
n bis specialities, and Duray 's trapeze act, earn-
I ine well inuriled applause.
" The Polygraph." This ia another new inven-
n in the way of manifold writers. Messrs. Whit
ney & Robertson bave shown ns the operation of
the " Improved Polygraph.' whereby it is claimed
that one hundred good copies can be tuken from a
single writing, and as fast as the sheets can be
laid on and taken off. It is certainly a valuable
discovery, and will banish the cumbersome copy
ing press from the counting house.
' A Vacation. Among the passengers arrived by
the Australia on Monday, was tbe Rev. Father Hugh
P. Gallagher, for some years pastor of St. Joseph's
Roman Catholic Church in San Francisco. The rev
erend gentleman has spent twenty-seven years of
active service in California, and bis heal:h becoming
impaired he now takes a vacation. After remaining
at these Islands for several months, be will proceed to
Europe, and visit his native place in Donegal, Ire
land. Ax Improvement. The old wooden building on
School street, adjoining the store of J. T. Water
bouse and formerly belonging to Her Highness
Keelikolani, having been pin chased by Mr Water
bouse, bas been demolished, and in its place will
be erected a brick building. For the present
however, the lot bas been utilized by the erection
of a temporary building for tbe storage ot incom
ing goods. We bad occasion some time since to
call attention to tbe (act that tbe old building pro
truded on the street.

Lauaina Sugar Cane. A correspondent residing
in the village which was once known as the
" second city of tbe Kingdom." writes as follows:
"This place continues very healthy notwithstand
ing our dense foliage, our stagnant ponds, canal
and marshes, and tbe progress of malific planets or
stars. I am beginning to think that our panacea
is sugar cane, which everybody chews here at all
times of the day. There are chalybeate proper
ties in cane, especially onr juicy Labaina cane. I
estimate that the molars of the men, women and
children of Labaina grind up about forty loads of
Turton's cane per annum." -:

tion for the purpose of entering tbe counting bouse
of Messrs. C. Brewer & Co. of this city was sue
ceeded on New Years day by Godfrey Brown Eq
a son ot Thomas Brown. Esq. Register of public
Conveyances. Mr. Brown is a skillful accountant,
of thorough business habits, and his appointment
is considered as an excellent one in all respects.
A Castook. Oo New Years morning a large
sized sketch in pencil and water colors appeared on
the bulletin board in front of our office, the work of
unknown hands, but suspected to be by our Ha
waiian Nast. The subject is his favorite one the ir
repressive heathen Chinee. The centre is occupied
by the figure of a Bemi-nude coolie, with folded arms
and the self-satisfied look on bis countenance is life
like, while Hawaii nei all about bim bows in submis
sion to not the coming man, but the man who has
already come. Tbe satire is sharp, and Ibe picture
has continued to attract a crowd since Thursday
morning. We understand that photographio copies
will be taken of it.
Overloading Drays. There is a provision in tbe
laws of 1878 which declares that " No vehicle li
censed to transport freight shall carry more than one
ton of two thousand pounds, for each drawing horse
or other animal, under penalty upon tbe licensee of
double the license." We have every reason to be
lieve that the law ia frequently violated. One day
this week we counted fifty bags of flour oj a dray
going by our office, and the not over-powerful horse
was compelled to strain very hard to drag along the
2,500 pounds, besides the weight of the dray, the
driver and another man altogether say 8,850 lbs
By Section 3 of the Act of of 1878, it is made the duty
of the Marshal or his Deputy to prosecute for viola,
tion of the same.

The U. S. Coxsi i- Late telegraphic dispatches
are to the effect that President Hayes will shortly
nominate J. M. Morton. Esq.. tbe U. S. Consul at
this port, for the office of Collector of Internal
Revenue for San Francisco. It is understood.
however, that the California delegation in Con
gress will oppose tbe nomination, desiring this
emolument for some one pf their own particular
partisians. Without pretending to speak authori
tatively, we may say that we do not believe that
Mr. Morton feels any particular solicitude on the
subject ; and we are confident we speak tbe senti
ment of this community when we say that his leav
ing tbe post of Consul at this port, where be has
already made many friends, would be regretted.
Sad Accident. On the 21st ultimo, Alexander
Libolilo McLean, eldest son of the late Geo. C. Mo
Lean, left this city on the sloop Sarah, for a trip
to Waianae, on this Island. At about 5 o'clock on
that day, after the sloop bad anchored at Waianae,
McLean fell overboard and waa drowned. lie was
subject to epileptic fits and is supposed to bave
been taken with one and so fell overboad, but no
one saw bim at the moment, and it was too late for
assistance when his absence was noted. Mr. Rich
ardson of tbe Waianae Plantation, with the help of
native divers did all that be could to recover tbe
body, but in vain. It is supposed to have been
taken by sharks, which abound in that locality.
The deceased was the first foreign subject born iq
the reign of Kamebameha IV. and wan therefore
named after that King. He would bave been 25
years old on the 27tb of December.
The Hawaiian Gazette. With tbe first of the
new year tbe proprietorship of this journal chang
ed bands Mr. McDowe'. tbe editor and publisher
during the past two years retiring, and is succeed
ed by Mr. Robert Grieve. The latter is a practical
printer of long ; experience in newspaper affairs,
and we wish bim all tbe success in his enterprise
wbicb. from our knowledge of bis industry, perse
verance and ability, we are confident be will de
serve. The retiring editor, who we understand In
tends to return shortly to the United States, took
formal leave of this community tn Lis issue of Wed
nesday, intimating that he hits a rod in pickle for
somebody that we shall by-and-bye find that there
" A chrll aruanc us taktn notes
And faith he'll prent em 1"
Forewarned is forearmed but we don't think we
shall provide any extra armor on account of the
threat. We however regret to learn from the Col
onel's valedictory that he bus made enemies during
hia residence here a fact that is news to us.
Blue Rihbon Temperance Pleimik. We have
received from tbe publisher. Mr. R. II. McDonald.
of San Francisco, copies of bis Temperance Circu
lar and Pledge. The latter reads as follows :
" God helping me. I. the undeisigned. pledge my
word of honor to obstain from the use of distilled.
fermented and malt liquors, as a beverage, and
im the use. of Tobacco in all its forms ; and I
will use all honorable means of inducing others to
do tbe same." The circular, a large letter sheet,
contains nine columns of printed reasons why
everybody should at once and forever abandon
tbe use of liquors aod tobacco. Tbe writer says :
My design is to furnish forcible arguments and
suggestions concerning the wide spread effects of
these twin evils, Intemperance and Tobacco. The
tail of one is but the head of tbe other. All users of
Tobacco are not drunkards or bad' men, but all
drunkards and nine-tenths of all bad men use
Tobacco. The evils arising from tobacco are lets ap
parent at first, but none the less fatal. Intemper
ance by which I mean tbe use of ardent spirits io
any manner as a beverage, and tobacco in all its
forms as a luxury or habit, are evils of such enor
mity that they may be said to embrace all others;
they are certainly unlike all others, they wound
wherever man is vulnerable. Ibis cannot be said
of any other evils to which man is heir."
New Yeavs. The first day of the new year waa
celebrated generally in this city, about everybody
making a whole or a partial holiday. There were
the usual luaus and picnics in the suburbs, and
plenty of horse riding. In the forenoon the native
Sabbath School scholars were marched in procession
to Kaumakapili Church, and after appropriate exer
cises, enjoyed a feast of good things provided for tbe
a n a a V m 1 A V 3 J
occasion. The mnce s uwo i voiunieen j inn a at
tachment of tbe Household troops, the whole under
command of nis Majesty, paraded through the city
and marched to Makiki, where a competitive drill
was bad. To Company B, Capt. David Kasha, was
awarded the first prize, a silver cup ; to tbe captain
himself, a silver medal ; medals were also distributed
as rewards for punctuality at drills and meetings.
The troops made a very good, soldierly appearance.
In the afternoon there was a boat race in the harbor,
between Governor Dominis' six-oared barge the
Kapiolani," manned by a Hawaiian crew, and
boat, also of six oars, belonging to the U. S. 8.
Lackawanna. Tbe distance was five miles to tbe
Sag boat and return. Tbe " Kapiolani" was the
winner, making the flag-boat in 27 minutes, and 26
minutes thence to tbe winning post total distance of
five miies in 63 minutes the Lackawanna's boat
coming in two and a half minutes later. Considering
the chop sea that prevailed outside, the time may be
considered good. It is said that considerable money
changed bands on the result We learn that the
plucky boys of the Zactaiciiia propose to try it
again. Tbe Honolulu boys re naturally somewnat
proud of their victory, inasmuch as the Lackawan
na' t boat, in fifteen previous contests in other coun

Beef Eaters.
Ma. Editor : Perhaps It Is noi generally "'
known, but il is nevertheless a fact, that at the
slaughter houses over on the point below the
prison, where beef cattle are kept for taught- .
ering, the pen is In a shameful condition. Cattle are
kept standing up lo their knee) In filthy BUid, ,
awaiting their turn to be killed, without food or
water, their tongues banging out of their months i(
for how long a time Is, unknown -and uo place
to lie down in but mud. Is it any wonder that
people are attacked with fever and other diseases,
when they eat beef that bait gone through wttb
such treatment Where Is the so-called Board of
Health, or tbeir Agent 7 Or will some publlo
spirited person, with a regurd for tbe, public '1
health, take Ibe proper step Ui bave tbe filthy
condition in which beef cattle are kept, brought
to tbe attention of tbe courts of tbe country. ' '

Our Australian Mail Service;
The Sun Fiaiu iwo 1'osi li nni clrcurntanc well-
liridetatood in j .nro ili-livJ circle, ia a better, au-,' y
tbority on Auwii .illin postal matters than any pa
per published on Ibis coitxt or in the United States,
nd is probably better infoimed than General "
Reyes himself. We liu-t Congress will llsleo to
its warning of the jeopardy thai surrounds this Sao
Francises and Australian Mail, in time,, and take
some measuaes to remove the cauaew wblok threaten-'
its withdrawal. Considering that the United
States pays no part of the subsidy which an y ,
American Steamship Company receives for its ser- '
vices, and that a healthy irad wilb tbe colonies
is opening up by its aid beside tbe gal oft our
railroads, hotels. kc.. are making out of paa eager
on their transcontinental trip, it would be policy
instead of charging double rates for transmitting a i
closed mail across the country, to frank the mall
through by railroad. This would be taking upon
ourselves only a reasonable share of the cost.
Without Imperial and colonial asbdanoeJ or both
this S.n Franciaco line cannot be miintained ; and
unless it is maintained, our young but healthy and
promising general trade with tbe Colonies ceases.
Any member of Congress from this coast who does
not take the pains lo muster this Australian mail
question will bave failed in bin duty to the peo
ple who, elect bim. Tbe-Posf of Dec. 6th says oo
this question : - ...
Trade with Brazil and the Argentine .Republic,
we are told in tbe message to Congrene by Preal- (
dent Hayes, is improving ; and he suggests tbe es
tablishment of direct postal comrnnloatlon with ,
those countries by American ships. Thia is equiv
alent to recommending a subsidy. L t us hope , ( , ,
that while tbe Brazilian trade is fostered our grow-
lag Australian trade may not be overlooked.
It is kept op by colonial subsidies paid to tbe ' j ' j
Pacific Mail Company, bat Is faaodicepped by. ex- .1 - '
cesiive freight charges on British Inclosed snails
crossing Ibis continent. Tbe effect will be,usWMu .; .
Congress takes some action in - this matter, to ' '
break down the Australian service altogether.
Tbe British government has just approved aeon-.,
tract by tbe Melbourne government with tbe Pen-' ' '
insular and Oriental Steamship Company, for a .
fortoigbtly mail service to and from Australia-on i 'li
condition of Sydney being made the terminus of
tbe line. This la done to . detach ,Nf w South
Wales from tbe New Zealand alliance, and cause
it to withdraw from tbe Pacific service via. San '
Francisco. Tbe British government bas mean
while doubled Its demands upon tbe contracting
colonies, exacting four cents for every two cents
now paid, on tbe grounds that tbe excessive de ? y
mandsoftbe United States government for the 1
freight of inclosed mails necessitates this measure.
This new arrangement likewise takes elect la
Febuary next. Unless Congress lakes the matter r r
in hand, therefore, and deals with it In a fair and
generous spirit, British policy will prevail, be
cause it is absurd to suppose that New bourn
Wales and New Zealand will continue . to pay
a high subsidy to an American steamship com- ;
pany for the mere privilege of sending tbeir mail
across this continent, while deriving no advan
tage whatever from postages. .
