(Daily, February G.)
The observance of the Sunday law on
iu-.se Island is a credit in ?h nation
Uud to show that all who reside here are
a law-abiding people. When the hon.
member for Kwa and Walanae sought to
modify and amend the existing law during
the session of 18S2, his bill received a. de
cided rebuff. We advocate the continuance
of the law as it stands for the particular
benefit of the native Hawaiian. It tenda to
inculcate the principles of morality and
rectitude on all sides. There are Instant.
however, where officers entrusted with the
execution of these laws ar nf tn aT,nv
want of discretion. Instances of this nature
have been repeatedly Dolnted out In th.
columns, the most noteworthy being that
of a Chinese rice-grower, who, in tnrlneto
save a few bags of paddy from being de
stroyed by an Impending storm by remov
ing them from their exposed situation to a
place of safety was arrested, and convicted
of violating the Sabbath. Another instance
of an equally aggravating nature happened
on Kunday last, the only difference being
mat no arrest was made, as the contem
plated work was frustrated by an dis
criminating Deputy-Sheriff. The schooner
Emma, recently stranded at Walanae. was
auout to be launched into her native ele
ment on the 4th Inst., preparations bavin?
been previously made, and the services of a
steamboat engaged, to take advantage of
the high tide a favorable circumstance on
the day In question. A loss of twenty-four
Lours probably meant the total loss of the
schcooner. When all the plans were ma
tured, and about to be put in oiration. a
Deputy-Sheriff put in an apteaisnce. and
threatened to prosecute all who dared to
participate in the launching of the stranded
vessel. With the " reef" in view, the owner
and his gang had to suspend operations
and wait until the Sabbath bad passed.
This is stretching the law to extremes. The
matter was represented to the Marshal, and
he expressed his surprise and disgust at the
want of discretion on the part of the Sheriff.
But this was tw late for the interested par
ties to take advantage of the high tide and
favorable weather. It is in similar cases to
this that the necessity of a discriminating
Sheriff is obvious. No doubt he' thought
he was doing his dnty ; but were the law to
be so strictly enforced In all quarters, there
would be less carriage-driving and horse
back riding on the Sabbath day than at
Coxsidkkino the abundance of fish in
Hawaiian waters, they are far too high
priced in the market. Only comparatively
few. are used for food, while in the Cape
Verd and Western Islands, they are a prin
cipal article of consumption and are sold at
a very moderate price. The only consider
able market in these islands, that is 'at all
well supplied, is the one here in Honolulu.
The ponds on the other islands, whlnh
might easily furnish a convenient supply
of the best varieties, have been allowed, to
fall into disuse to some extent from want
of proper care. This has decidedly a bad
effect on the supply and price of fish, and
probably is one chief cause of their scarcity
and expensiveness in our markets. ; la the
Uaited States the culture of fish is deemed
of sufficient importance to demand public
attention, and not only have laws been en
acted to protect the culture but a commis
sion has charge of the matter, and is con
tinually engaged in attending to the
spawning grounds and introduction of the
tracleil wMh reference to the Trade in which tlitjlfe T"1

it has been found by careful experiments,
that they will strive best. There is no
doubt that, if some such arrangement
could be made in Hawaii, the best results
would follow, but thee results may be in
a measure accomplished if those who have
ponds will attend to them which they can
do at a trifling expence with ample
profit. Carp will flourish In almost any
pond with little care. They are excellent
for food and very easily raised On this
subject we publish an article from the
Pacific Rural Prea.
DAly, February 7.)
Some comment has been made about the
probable absence of the Princess Ruth Ke
ellkolanl from the ceremony of the Corona
tion, It has been aald that Her Royal
Highness declines to attend on account of
her objection to the ceremony. Now we
know that this statement Is uutrue- We
have from the very lips of the venerable
Princess the assurance that, but for her
serious indisposition, and the advice of her
physician, she would attend the ceremony.
We regret to say that the Princess Is affected
with heart disease, and an occasion of great
festive excitement would certainly be un
favorable to the health of the distinguished
sufferer. Her Royal Highness made a call
upon His Majesty on Monday, the 5th Inst..
and gave an assurance, such as we
have stated, that only ill health wonld pre
vent her attendance at the Royal State
We may, in thla connection, speak of
other parties who have been announped as
objectors to the ceremony of the coronation.
Certain bodies or lodges are spoken ot as
declining to be present at the coronation,
when we know that the coronation cam
mittee are assured In writing that the mem
bers of the several societies, although they
may not be able to attend In the respective
bodies of their organizations, will, neverthe
less, be present with the greater part of their
order or society. In the case of one society,
the Coronation Commmittee Is notified of
the inability of the organization to be pra
sent as such, from the fact that nearly
every member will attend as an invited
guest, official or otherwise, ine denuncia
tions and criticisms of this State ceremony
seems puerile at this late day. They are
utterly of non-effect. They do not repre
sent honest sentiments. Men are snarling
at a public event or State ceremonial in a
way which conclusively proves that they
would be cordial participants under otber
circumstances. There is a common and
correct opinion, that these men who sneer
at and denounce the Coronation of the
King, do so, not on account of any convic
tion of public economy or '$dncta iimplici
tas," or any idea of appropriateness and
applicability, but simply because they are
soured men, and because they or their
friends have not the disposition of
public affairs. Put offices, emoluments
and all the patronage and consequence
of the Government into their bands, and
we would have the present Apposition
hollers transformed into a zealous crowd
of blatant coronationlsts.
The licensed carriages, "baoks" or
"cabs" as tbey are indifferently called,
whifcii, a few years ago, were looked upon
rather as luxuries, have now become neces-
sary to many' who live a llttje way out of
, , r
town or who have occasion to reacn some
pomi in a norry. The streets are alive
with these vehicles, especially between 4
and 5 p. m., when people are returning to
i hey congregate on the docks whenever
an inter-island or foreign steamer is ex
A B m
pecieo, ana one can always be had 'by
teiepnone " at any hour of the day or niirbt
As a rule, the carriages are kept neat and
ciean, and the horses are in good condi
tion. Sow and then a rather ram-shackly
turnout is to be seen, but It is hardly ever
absolutely necessary that one should use
one of this class. The rates of tare are.
upon the whole, moderate, and, in fact
there remains but one point to which we
would take decided objection. We refer to
the personal habits of some of the drivers
We do not think that the driver of a public
carriage has any more right to make him
self offensive to thoe who employ him for
a short time, by the use of tobacco or whis
key, than has the coachman who is em-
ployed by the month. If those who are in
the habit of smoking or drinking would
stop to think that, from where they are
seated in their carriages, their fares cannot
neip noticing the fumes of the tobacco or
whiskey they have been using, their sense
or what is due to their customers, would
cause tnem to abandon the habits. We
know of ladles who always want number
so-and-so called to take them shopping, or
calling or about town, and there are not
a few of the sterner sex who prefer to walk
to where they can get a favorite driver, and
soieiy because he is careful not only of his
equipage and customer, but ef himself. We
are glad to be able to say that by far the
greater number of the drivers are polite,
careiui, and pleasing in every sense ; but,
now and then we sit behind a man whom
we find to be offensive in more ways than
TV. . . 1- i
a ouuu we wouiu say, use tne same
endeavors to make the temporary occu
pants of your carriage comfortable, as you
would like to have your employees use if
you owned the outfit.
(Daily, February 9.)
Yestebday morning at 11 o'clock His
Excellency Sugi Magoshichiro, H. I. J. M.'s
Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Pleni
potentiary to Hawaii, waited upon His
Majesty the King and presented him with
a pair of very elegant Japanese flower
vases from His Majesty the Emperor of
Japan. His Excellency also handed to Her
Majesty the Queen two rolls of beautifully
flowered silk, a present from Her Majesty
the Empress of Japan, and a handsome silk
table-cloth from his Imperial Highness
His Majesty then invested His Excellency
the Japanese Minister with the Grand Cross
of the Crown of Hawaii ; also Secretary
Ishibashi Masakata with the Order of Com
mander of the Crowa of Hawaii, and K. B.
Kakiwachi with the Order of Companion of
the Crown of Hawaii.
His Excellency the Envoy then proceeded
to the Foreign Office and invested His Ex
cellency W. M. Gibson, Minister of Foreign
Affairs, with the Second Order of the Rising
Sun; Colonel C. P. Iaukea, Secretary of the
Foreign Office, with the Order of the Rising
Sun, fourth class; Colonel Boyd, of His
Majesty's Staff, with the Order of the Rising
Sun. fourth class ; Decorations of this Order
of the fifth class were left at the Foreign
Office for Colonel Geo. W. Macfarlane, His
Majesty's Aide, and for Mr. H. E. Whitney,
late Acting Chamberlain. , , to a
f eucrr as-passmgenange in arromnibus, j -
ance,' Esq., Hawaiian Consul at San Fran
cisco, who is now In this city, we are en
abled to report as the latest news from
Washington concerning the treaty, a tele
gram from Hon. J. Mott Smith, dated Jan
uary 26, to the effect that the bill intro
duced by Morrill in the House, looking to
the abrogation of the treaty, was placed at
the foot of the calendar. In the Senate
there was no report from the Finance Com
mittee, and no prospeot of action by either
From the abov, together with other
news received by the Suez which will be
found elsewhere, there seems but little
prospeot of any final action being taken on
the treaty this session of Congress.
The King street gate of the Palace
grounds will be opened on Monday next,
Coronation Day at 10:15 a.m., in order to
admit those who have received invitation,
to attend the ceremony. It is not to be ex
pected that Invited, guests will take their
cards of invitation with them, as it is pre
sumed that none but those who have been
invited will present themselves for admit
tance. The Planters? Monthly for February is oat,
and as usual, it contains much that is interest
ing. It contains flye'editorials oil the subjects of
co-operation, the Labor Problem, the Treaty,
the late Judge Allen and Reciprocity. The first
named subject is eyideutly from the pen of one
who has given this matter a great deal of study.
He adTOcates co-operation in the matter of su
gar growing and in support of his argument he
spates that "co-operation a conducted at Ko
hala by lt. Hart, at Wajmaualo and elsewhere
will produce more at the Same expense, or the
same amount wth less outlay iu sugar flowing,
than where h whole system of aujjar produc
ing, both growing and njanufapturlsg H owned
by one person, association or corporation.' ' In
diacussiug the Labor Problem, the old cry of the
supply not being equal to the demand, is reiter
ated. Employers are urged to make full returns
of the forms that have been forwarded tnem, us
requested by the officers of the Planters' Labor
and Supply Company. The Treaty and Re
ciprocity ar-e alwost synonymous articles though
evidently written by different parties. In the
former it is stated that "the outlook on treaty
questions is not as encouraging as it might be."
This is eJy too true, and the tone of the oppo
sition press is weh as to wake matters look
worse still, provided it is read abroad, Undey
the title of "Reciprocity," the writer alludes to
the poasibility of England taking the leading po
sition in Hawaiian affairs, "if America should
gi?e them the opportunity by retiring from inti
mate relilious with as,' "aijd.QBce acquired "it
would be contrary to all Britrsupfecodeut far
them ever to diminish or terminate the influence
of uch a position by any voluntary act of theirs,
but on the contrary, they would aim for a defi
nitely controlling influenpp,'' . just tribute of
reapeot is paid to the Jate Elisba fl. Allen, aud
the planter with otbera, 'feel that it will he
hard to replace him." A communication fioia
the pen of the Honorable S. N. Castle on the
Treaty contains some stubborn facts that ought
to be feqj by all opponents to the Treaty. Cap
tain Tierney's report to the Planters Labor and
Supply Company, shows briefly but concisely
what was done on the recent trip of the Julia.
The items nl selected matter will repay perusal.

A rather curious incident, that might have de
veloped into a serious accident, is told in connec
tion with a trial that ia said to have been made
of the fire-proof qualities of pne of " lJallV'
safes. The story is that pne of these safes was
prepared for the trial by being filled with a
variety of combuetile and volatile substanees,
such as tick-phospharauE, some roll sulphur,
and a package or giant powder provided with a
fuse npd cups, a pint of i-ulphuric ether and a
quantity of .-.k-ohoj the last two ip their glass
flack "I'd then, that u tin can, half filled with
water, was placed on tup of these ai tides. This
uun was fitted with plugs of a easily fusjblo alloy,
and the theory was that whenever the tempera
ture of the interior of the nife was raised to a
point that would endanger the safety of such
articles as bonds, deeds, paper currency, etc., the
plugs would melt and allow the water to flow
out ap(J poo the inside of the saPs down again.
Thus prepared and carefully plaoed in the centre
of a blast furnace, the safe was completely Fur
rounded and covered with wood, coke and coal
and. the mass ignited. Then the " hqt nir blast "
wa turned' fin and the temperature raised to a
very high point and kept there fur one and a half
hours. At the end of that time, the fuel being
oil nrmriumprf. the furnace was allowed to cool oft.
This took twenty-four hours and then the safe was
dragged from the mass of slag and ash in which
it was buried and carefully examined. We are
tojd that the intense heat had melted off the
corners of tiia outside Irame and in one place
injured the second of the five "shells" that covered
the fire proot " lining of the interior. After
some trouble the door was lorced open, and it was
then found that while the phosphorus, sul
phur eiunt powder, and alcohol were intact, the
sulphuric etber had teen yolatjjied, and evaporat
ing, had so lowered the temperature ol the ar in

j The AiHjlltvH O.nrch Chronicle for tho present
month maintains the standard of former issues
and is full of interesting matter, a large part ut
which will be as much appreciated by numbers
of other communions a by ihe body to which it
especially addresses itself. The editorial arti
cle is a lengthy homily uu "the Pres iu rela
tion to Christianity." The writer takes, we
think, an optimist view of the facts whilst admit
ting as in the following paragraph that there is
muck ia the character of the newspaper litera
ture that is to be deplored. Ou this subject he
says : " There are defects and blemishes iu
our newspapers which eTen the most humble
novice in the field of journalism must regard
as patent, grave, and deserving condemna
tion. Among these are the rancor and injustice
whkh too commonly niaik both sides iu jwliti

and palliation of offences t-f those in power, the
demoralizing details of criminal trials and social
scandal., and the publication of improper adver
tisements. Nor ia the press always free where
independent of state or party control. It is
ofteu owned by pnrtisau leaders, by jobbers,
political, speculating or sectariau. Truth and
honor are always endangered where there are
merely personal aud party interests to be gained.

The arrival of the U. S. S. Wnrfnmett on the iid
inst. was the signal for another raid by the anxious
ones and whose fears were alloyed and hopes
raised by the somewhat vague infor. nation that
the "smoke" of a steamer going in, had been seen
by some of the crew of the Wuclni tt when that
vessel was coming out of the Golden Gate, But
the most direct, most gratifying and latest news
was brought to port here ou the fth inst. by Capt.
Fries if the brigantine J, II, towWn who reports
that the Suez had arrived iu bin Francisco on the
21st ult., having returned to repair her propeller
which was disabled when four davs from port.
Newspaper dates of the 23d inst. were also received
per the J. D. bpreck-el and which confirm Capt.
Fries statements and also conveys the additional
information that the Suez would again sail for
this port on or about the 31st nit. m iking her due
here about the 8th inst. Several of our residents
having friends on board the belated steamer have
reoeived letters and messages from them. The
mails which were on board of the Sm-z and des
tined for this port wonld not be allowed to be
transferred on board the SjirerM by the San
Francisco Postmaster. Capt, Frioa is the man of
the hour and everybody feels feels pleased to
shake his hand and congratulate him on being the
bearer of such "glad tidings." Below we give the

The S;u Francisco Chronicle says :. When four
days out on her voyage to the Sandwich Islands
tne Brit. S. S. Suez, which left here on the 9th inst
had two blades of her propeller broken by its
striking a spar float on the water. The accident
made its occurrence immediately felt by the jar to
the machinery and the reduced speed of the
vessel. She, however, continued on her way uutil
the following day, and theu tamed her bow to
ward San Francisco again. Fate seemed to be
against the ship, for on the same day, sljortly after
she had started on her return to this port, she was
struok by a gale, and one of her top gallant-masts
and topsail yards werr. carried away. Seven days
were consumed in making this port from the point
where she turned bacK. ller reduced rate of speed
accounted for this. Ordinarily her speed averages
11 knots an hour but her damaged conJiti n only
6 knots were made. The pecuniary loss will
not be great for the damaged propeller, but con
siderable expense will be entai(xl before she can
be repaired. Her cargo, js hpinf? partly dischargde
at one of the "Sea wU shbJ -, to. enable her to
dock and replace the broken screw with the extra
one that she carries.
Her cargo is general and was oemfcisned t VV.

following from a private letter :
What a better disappointment it was to us one
and all, when within U00 miles of Honolulu, hav
ing had a wretched sea-sick time trying to keep
up courage, thinking there were only three more
days to endure, to be told that wo must lorn about
and go in the opposite direction. The propeller
was broken and could not not be mended in Hono
lulu. There would be head winds if we kept on
our course and it would take us weeks to re tch the
Islands, whereas the present wind would help ns
toward Frisco. We all felt as if we could lift up
our voices in one heart rending cry, I think we all
shed silent tears. Bat wretcUsdh' aa I felt about
