me Association, and there lias already been
received at the Foreign Office, circulars mh- !
tine forth the purpose? and tcntn; of the
exhibition, uml a plan of the buiuiiugs.
In this plan we notice that Hawaii lias
been assigned a place in a conspicuous part
of the building, and we are assured that the
secretary lias expressed the hope that this
little kingdom will take this occasion to ex
hibit the many products that s:ie now se.uH
abroad, not forgetting those which she is
capable of placing upon the market. Of
course we expect the leading staple, sugar,
rice, etc-, to be handsomely represented, tut
we would urge upon all the iitiortuijt-e of
sending foiward such articles us the fibres
of the island., th castor beau, samp'es of
sumach (leaves and bark) as well as those
of the cinchona; our valuable wood, the
fish I tat a warm in our waters, samples of
tone such as are being used iu the St.
Andrew's Cathedral, the tlates. decom
posed corals, our Mpones, and the valuable
ochres, and other volcanic products. Not
the least interesting would be humpies of
our soil. A large iiuuiUr of samples of the
different lau Is upon which cane and rice
are grown could not fail to be of interest,
and, taken as a whole, the department de
voted to the display of Hawaiian products,
soil, etc., can be made one of the mot at
tractive aud interesting in the building.
Our ferns, lichens, mosses and sea weeds,
shoutd not be forgotten, aud tue list would
be found to embrace not a few K'cimeus
possessing a positive marketable value.
We may add that the Government has
had their attention especially called to the
proposed exhibition, by the government of
the United States through the American
Minister Resident, aud we are ure tuut all
who are really Interested in the tut ire of
the Hawaiiau Island- will exert them

THE Financial Statistics of the Kingdom
are now before the public, aud furnish an
answer of the mot complete kind to the
querulous insinuations and blustering
threats in which the opposition press liave
alternately Indulged. The figures are now
before the world, and we ask with eo i ill
deuce what is there to find lault with? Of
course those people who think that every
Work sanctioned by the Legislature shou:d
be begun and completed right oil at once
without even considering where the money
is to come from will never be satisfied.
They are oblivious to the fact that at ap
propriation is one thing and the money
wherewith to carry it out is another. Thee
are the sort of people who are out with
one breath that the Government leave
this and that undone and with the
next that the Government spends
money faster than it ought, and that iu
consequence the Treasury is empty. With
such people there is no possibility of reas
oning. But we will unhesitatingly put it
to our business men aud to all fair-minded
persons whether supjorters or opponents of
the Government what sort of a showing
does the account of Government Expendi
ture make? Has anything been neglected
which it would have been wise to attempt?
Taking the Revenue on the one side and the
Appropriation Act on the otner, has there
been any lack of good judgement iu the
maun.1; in which the former has been use i
to make good as far as it went the inten
tions expressed on the other ? Our own an
swer is emphatically, Nc.
We shall deal with the figures of the
returns of Revenue and expenditure in de
. tail in future articles. Meanwhile we de
sire to call attention to the satisfactory in
creases iu all important branches of
Revenue au Increase which was pred cted
a year ago by this journal, when comment
ing on the estimates laid before the As
sembly. Fruit Trying.
The drying of fruit for preservation lias
been practiced for more years than we wot
of, presumably from the time when some
antediluvian discovered that tbe figs, ilute
ami grapes growing about him when liit tl
bylheKun were palatable and nutritious.
From the earliest tim s iu Arubi 1. Kgypt
aud Asia some varieties of fruils dried in
the sun form a staple articleof food ; iu the
New World artificial beat is utilized to
drive off the moisture, not only from fruits,
but very many kinds of vegetables.
Iu days gone by on these Island thrifty
housewives annually prepared lianan.-is ami
figs by nun-drying tlieiii, and ina -y an oM
tl me scholar at luiiatnu College lia- had
packages of bananas nicely felict d and then
dried, or fl, compacted together, S"iit
from his home, with which t fill up th
often weary intervals be ween meals.
Now the ' Aldeii" process of drying fruits
and vegetables comes to the front, and a
company has commenced the work f pre
paring our native fruits In this manner for
the market. Chief amount the fruit-. Unit
may be prepared iu this mt:ner are
bananas. This delicious fruit, when prop
erly dried, preserves its flavor and sweet
ness, and. moreover, presents a very at
tractive appearance, rig ami grapes, too,
are easily and quickly prepared, so that
they are very palatable an. I lasting.
Amoagst the vegetables that could be
prepared for export the nvrect potato c aims
our attention, it is aiu ui.it wiieu Ul-s-kicated
this vegetable tikes a very high
rank amongst canned " products, a large
amount of nutriment being packed in a
very small compass. It behoves us to ,
utilize all the resources of the country, in ,
order that we be able to olfer inducements
to a good class of immigrants to make their
homes here, and the industry we have men
tioned bids fair t afford employment to

The Gazette of this week, commenting
Uou the pay of Government physicians,
says that mere is no legal oiotacle to the
payment of more than fcl500 to a district
'A rue, mere is no "legal" obstruction, but
the amount to be paid to district physicians
must be regulated in accordance Willi the
means at tue disposal of the Board. There i
are sixteen districts to be provided with
physicians, which, at $15t0 each, would
absorb the sum of 24,000 per annum, or
34 i,ooo on i of tue lump sum '' of $-30,000
provided for "Government Physicians,''
leaving C20U0 fur "Medical Aid.'"
Ic is ais ir.ie Hi it, as the O zetle says,
"It is not to be supposed that any man
wort ii his salt as a physician is going to
bury himself Hi any little out of the way
pluce for 01500 a year." Ami it is for that
reason that the planters should be willing
to contribute something towards making up
a good salary lor a gnd man. Several of
the planters nave done so, and are now con
tributing liberally towards the nupport of
the phys.ciaus in their districts. There is
oue district which is not provided with a
physician whicli turns out au annual crop
of sugar worth perhaps iOJ,000 per annum,
and v are recently informed, Hut it pays
$loJ per a 11 11 u 111 for med.cal attendance 011 its
employees. One-eighth of one ierceiit. 011
the value of the annual crop is devoted to
the medical care of its laborers !
Other Governments make it obligatory
upon planters that they should contribute
a fixed sum towards the medical attend
ance upo.i the p.autaliou employees,
this being about the only sugar growing
country where the whole cost is born by
the Government save such voluntary con
tributions as planters may choose to make.
If there Was a distiict amongst the six
teen referred to where there was no large
agricultural orgaii.zation, where theouly in
habitants Were the poor, supporting them
selves without, aid from plantations, then,
in such a district, the Government might
very prqerly beusked to support a capa le
phjsiciau soieiy at its own expense. But
there is 110 such district, and we are of the
- opinion that all the plantation owners
: should assist the Board of Health iu ade
quately remunerating the resident physi
cians, and thus ensure the obtaining of
realty g O-l men to look after the health of
both employers and employees.
A Dangerous Practice.
' Leaves Lave their time
And tlowcrs to wither."
.So wrote Mrs. Ilemans many years ago.
The statement made is correct as applied to
the temperate regions with which the gift
ed lady was familiar, but if she Were now
residing 111 Honolulu she would probably
liave noticed that the leaves fall here at all
times and thicker than those of Vallam
bro.sa. And a nuisance they are too, in
the sense that they make what Mrs. Ile
mans herself would probably call a mess."
Tliey fall iu showers, and the larcer ones
especially, cover up the grass, depriving it
ol the suiiiight, bleaching it out, or causing
it to waste away and die. Though swept
up iu the early morning a new supply is
dropped during the day, and the task of
cleaning them away is endless. The dan
gerous practice iu connection with their
ilisMsal is the destroying of them by lire.
Daily we see ami smell the smoke from
heap- of lea vei piled in the road or yards,

We say nothing of the smoke itself
or its dor beip 'Ji -agreeable (though
we l:-ve known of the latter making
jxiiue delicate organizations sick), but
it is the danger from the fire that
we would ask people to guard against.
No one should burn the leaves. The best
way to di?Ntsv of them is t bury them. A
good sized ho e should be dug into which
they should be thrown, aud covered over.
It may be said that the hole would be un
sightly. It might be probably as much
so ms one prep aied for the planting out of a
young tree or shrub, not more so but the
eatVt. and litter would be removed without
the risi attending the burning of them,

The Cooing Summer.
There Is every reason for believing that
we are to have an exceptionally warm and
it may be dry summer. The spring sea
son, about eiidii g has been marked by an
unusual amount of southerly " weather
with culms and fitful winds. The rainfall
iu and around Honolulu has been lighter
than usual, and in the mountains back of
the town the amount of precipitation has
not leeii up to the average of former years.
The supply of water available for use in
town is comparitlvely small, and the
Superintendent of Water Works has been
ob:iged to shorten the hours of irrigation as
a precautionary measure.
The signs of the times are such that we
consider ourselves warranted in calling up
on our fellow-residents In Honolulu ta pre

malarious type. Honolulu when favored
with the cool trade winds sweeping down

pleasant place to live in, climatically con
sidered. ;: Tlie difficulties that have been encounter

tuougot that a filled in taro patch is a
source of danger to those who live in the
house erected on the made ground, but, un

been provided for such sites there will be
found at times sickness that can be traced
to the presence of malarial influences. Con
spicuous amongst these is impure water,

ing a fruitful source of disease. Great care
should ba exercised to not only filter the
water we dtink, but to boil it as well, for it
has been proven beyond a doubt, that the
disease, imparting bacteria living in water
will pass through the p res of the finest
filter, but their vitality is destroyed by a ,
temperature of 212 degrees Fah. Personal i
cleanliness, temperate habits of miud as '

It is our sad misfortune to chronicle the
demise of the wife of His Excellency
J. E. Bush, Minister of the Interior,
who came to her death in the following
manner: Mrs. Bush left town at 9 a.m.
on Sunday, iu company with Col. Boyd,
Miss Boyd, Mrs. Bertelmann, a native girl
and one native man. They were going to
visit Mrs. Bo-d at Kailua, KoolaujHko,
when within about one mile from the Pali,
Mrs. Bush said to Col. Boyd, "let us galop"
and she started her horse and went on a
little ahead with Miss Boyd. Col. Boyd,
who was a little behind, saw her horse sud
denly, as it were, fall behind on his quart
ers, then rear up ; at this moment Mrs.
Bush fell oif backwards, and in falling
to the ground struck on the back of her
head on a stone, the road being very
stony at that place. Everyone immedi
ately went to her assistance, but she was
totally unconscious. Col. Boyd immedi
ately rode down to the ice factory, a dis
tance of about two miles, and telephoned
for a carriage and a doctor. The accident
occurred about 10.20 a.m. Mr. Rosenberg
and a party who were returning from a
visit to the Pali, kindly offered the use of
their wagonnette, which was accepted, and
Mrs. Bush carefully placed therein, and
and driven quickly back to her residence
on Bretannia street. Drs. Trousseau and
Brodie were in immediate attendance and
i did all thsy could for the unfortunate lady,
but their opinion from the nrst was tnat
she could not recover. The wound in the
back of her head being a very bad one, the
skull being badly broken and very, much
like the one that caused the death of Cap
tain Hope, under like circumstances.
The news of the accident spread
rapidly, and in a few hours the residence
of the Minister was surrounded by car
riages that conveyed anxious friends who
came to see the unfortunate lady. At 4.45
p.m., Mrs. Bush breathed her last in an
unconscious state, surrounded by the mem
bers of her family and mourning friends.
' Ills Excellency J. E. Bush, is absent on
Hawaii, having gone with His Majesty the
King on the Russian man-of-war Nayes
dnik, on Saturday last, to attend the. un
veiling of the Kamehameha statue at
Kohala. The steamer James Makee was
engaged early in the afternoon, before the
decease of Mrs. Bush, to convey to
her husband the news of the sad accident to
his wife, and she left last evening at 6 p.m.
Mrs. Bush was much beloved and a
gloom is cast over a wide circle iu the com
munity at the sad result of the accident.
This makes the fifth accident of a sim
ilar kind within twelve months, all of
which were fatal, namely: Captain Hope,
Mr. Chas. T. Dillingham, Mr. William
Austin, Mrs. J. E. Bush, and a native man
whose name we do not recal.
Mr. George E. Smithies was sent on the
steamer James Makee, as special messen
ger, to carry the sad new of Mrs. Bush's
death to her husband, His Excellency the
Minister of Interior.
Crczas's L,CTCRE-Iiooai Talk, Wed
nesday Evenixo, May 9th.
An American lady, of national reputation as
an author, pertinently asks, " If Christianity
does not make a man a gentleman what is it good
for ? ' True, for the ideal gentleman is genh.l,
kind, approachable, unselfish in a word
' social." He has true friends. He is a true
friend. Such we ought all to be.
Fellowship with men is almost as necessary
as fellowship with God. One of the most dis
tinguished traits of tbe character of Christ was
His geuiul, winning, approachability. How the
people thronged about Him ! How lie entered
into tbe life of all classes of people not a select
few, of congenial spirits, but the poor, the sin
ful, the unlovely, the uncongenial found in Him
a helper and friend. Ho did not content Him
self with preaching at them, He went among
them socially, helpfully. As He was so we
Especially should Christians feel a duty rest
ing npon them to use this social power for good
upou all who come within our church
walls. Every Christian ought to strive
to enter into the complicated life of the congre
gation. There should be generous thonghtful
ness for others in our worship. In the prayer
meeting, or public worship, when some one
pours out his sonl in thanksgiving, or pleading
for the poor, the burdeued. the tempted, we
are apt to appropriate the petition to ourselves,
or own loved ones, or our particular friends.
Do wo remember the widow, who perhaps is sit
ting only two or three seats from us, aud whose
heart is worn by the anxietif.i of the week's
work. Do we think of the pareuts i;er us who
are filled with shame and trouble bec-iusf of way
ward children ? Of the man whom we met at
the door, who has a constant battle with mis
fortune '! Of the young married couple, and
their joy ? Of the man who is battling with old
habits and ius ? Not only should we t lit 1 k of
them, but, better still, do we seek them out. n::d
put our kindly thoughts into words, and a baud
grjsp ? Many a soul wins a victory by this
added strength which comes from the sympa
thies of others; many a soul is won to Christ,
and bound with "hoop3 of steel'' to the church
by a cordial Christian welcome and interest.
This sociability ought not to be confined to
the church. It ought to be strong enough to
send us into the homes of strangers, and those
who need us. It ought to bo practised enough
to bring young men, in our city in shoals with
out homes, within the parlors of your Christian
homes. There is no substitute for home influ
ence. Church socials, entertainments, reading
rooms, Y. M. C. A. Halls, these may all do a
needed work, but I should rather have one
hour of a true home, as a helpful saving influ
ence uj'on a young man, than a month of what
thes will give him.
The f litud for May is rather behind time this
month. It bears the date of the 1st instant, and
it is but just to hand. The most considsrable
and readable feature of this number is the sup
plement and final page edited by a committee of
tbe Y. M. C. A. Indeed the supplement contains
more reading matter than all the remaining por
tion of the paper. Although several long ex
tracts are copied front the columns of contem
poraries, and are therefore a trifle stale, yet
there is much original matter in reference to the
dedication ceremonies of the new Y. M. C. A.
building. From an article on this subject, the
public may learn that ' the evening of April 21,
1833, was one of importance and interest, not
only to Christian young men of these Islauds,
but to all people iu this Kingdom." It would
seem from the style and claims of the Y. M. C.
A.th-tt this kind of petty exaggeration should
be entirely uncalled for. Tbe fact is there are
many people in this Kingdom, 6ueh as foreign
laboreis, for instance, who do not eren kuow
that the new building cf the Y. M. C. A. is
built. Bat then such misstatt menu as the one
we cite are without any great significance, ex
cept they show the tendency of the editing com
mittee not to adhere to the exact facts. Iu the
report of Prof. Amasa Pratt' 6peech, delivered
cm me occasion oi me Oeoication, tuat gentle
man is represented as saying: T speak kindly
of those who are willing to work, and do little
or nothina; ourselves, will not brin abont the
best results. To criticise, and so actuallr hiude r
work that would otherwise he done, is easy.'
Now what does Prof. Pratt mean by the latter
Hentt-uce ? Does he want to discourage criticism?
Does Le waut in to understand that merited
criticism is not necessary to the successful
accomplishment of any great work, or does
he want us to discriminate between "work that
would otherwise be done'' and work that would
net otherwise b-j done, which is often an im
possibility ? Any man of ordinary experience
ought to know that criticism stimulates, instead
of discouraging the efforts of sincere upright in
dividuals or associations, and that true critics
have in view always the promotion of the high
est good of the person or institution, which
they criticise of love rather than hatred, even as
a loving father chatisfs his child when it "errs
rather than foster error by failing to notice the de
linquency. The ruotit interesting, appropriate and
truly meritorious part of the recorded esereUes
on the occasion of the dedication of the new
Duiiding, is ttie excellent, tnougbtiut aud ex

Scenes at the Immigration Depot.
Hie Portuguese immigrants as they pass
to and fro or loiter about 111 the depot, pre
sent 9irae curious aspects both of Indivi
duality and dress. The men are generally
well built for labor aud clothed iu rough.
oddly-cut but serviceable material. Most
of the women are strongly formed and
dressed in unornamental, but convenient,
costumes. Some 01 them, however, are
quite delicate and not a few are really
handsome. Several of the youuger females
also make sooje pretensions to fashionable
dress and certainly look very neat. The
children are very sprightly and keep their
eyes wide open, and their ears aleit, to see
and hear all that transpires. All of the
immigrants, both old aud young, may be
seen at best advantage about noon when
lunch is served to them. Then they sit
about their respective cottages in pictur
esoue groups aim eat with an eagerness
that surely indicates a splendid appetite,
By and bv as they begiu to finish their
meals, each seeks a comfortable position
either half reclining or sometimes even
wholly streti hed out upon a mat or blanket
in the shade, for a sort of after-dinner rest
which all seem to enjoy thoroughly. Yet
during this interval of repositig quiet, the

post-offices seldom send their letters to the
offices, but hnil the mail carrier as he is passing
and hand them to him. He takes them 111 an
open one; to tne next omce wnere tuev are
mailed. Others send their letters which some
times amount perhaps, to fifty in an old flour
bag entrusted to a Chinaman or native who
does not go to the post-office but ckases the
mail carrier as he passes, and if he overtakes
him before he gets to the next station he dumps
the letters on the ground without their even being
tied up in a bundle, and the mail carrier has to
dismount from his mule aud pick up the scat
tered letters and put them into his open bag, to
take on to the next office.
uw it is easy to see now, in sucli cases as
this, when the wind is blowing a stiff' gale letters
may be scattered and lost, and angry complaints
and curses uttered. Cases of this kind happen
frequently on some of the mail routes, and the
facts are known to every one. Just as long as
this practice is allowed of handing loose letters
t. mail carriers, when the senders are within a
reasonable distance of a post-office, letters, too,
which may contain valuables it must be expect
ed that occasionally one will be lost, aud picked
up by some one bigger than a 'omall boy' und
not quite so honest as some are. If people
living in the rural districts wish their letters
carried safely, they have only to deposit them at
a regular post-office where there is but little
chance of their being lost. When this is not
done, persons must run their own risk."
Since the Madras returned to her anchorage
outside, nine new cases of smallpox has been
discovered on board, and reported by the Cap
tain. It was well that the President of the Board of
Health insisted upon the return of the vessel to
the outside anchorage.
Regarding the theft of a bank-check, referred
to in our issue of the 4th instant as having been
stolen and cished on Kauai. Sheriff Wilcox
writes to the Postmaster-General, under date of
7th : ' Your fa.or is to hand. I have investi
gated tke matter of the bink-check. aud have
traced it right to Mr. Wainwright's Chinese
cook, who undoubtedly stole it, as he was sent
with the letters to deposit in the post-office. He
admits having got another Chinaman to get the
draft cashed, but says he found the draft in the
wood-box. I arrested him, and he is locked up.
waiting the return of Mr. Waiirwright.''
A Mr. Vaux, Las published a pamphlet in
which he gives the following receipt for punish
ing crime. Separate the criminal from associa
tion, remove him from temptation, prevent com
bination, isolate him for reflection, segrtgiti
him for instruction, set him apart that his indi
vidual characteristics, crime, causes, motives,
inducements and allurements may be ascer
tained, and. finally, compel him to enough se
vere physicul labor to convince him that "the
way of the transgressor is hard."
