Dr. Stuebel met with two Hawaiian shortly after his arriv al at tbe islands, but with umir since ex cept by chance, and that "a native Hawaii an will scarcely be distinguished amongst Samoan and certainly is not known as a foi-ignr, lie will mostly be married to a .Samoan woman and thus be received as a member of a 8;i moan family." It was at Aunuu, u small island near Tutulla, in the eastern i art of the group, that he met with the men above referred to. He bad been specially requested to enquire about Kiino Telio and one of the Aunuu men proved to ! De ivimo'8 orotner. iue information ob tained is thu3 given by Doctor Steubel: "Kimo Tello lived in Tula Tutuila. he died three or four years ago from elephantiasis; he was sick four months; be owed $4o0 to Mr. Mellis. who took hold of the estate, which consisted in the deceased's trade. He left a widow but uo children." "Sam Manoa, bin brother, lives at Au nuu; he is married and has one daughter, who a married in Tutuila. He has a hou-e and a trade, and la well oir. "Talaau,aliiui Tohu Adam, born in Hono lulu, lives iu Aunuu tduce 30 years and has got a large family. One son Sanelivi Ta laau went about four years ago to Hono lulu to nee his grandfather. There lie got married. He wrote only onre woon after he had gone away. Hi father MUould like to get news from him." If anyone has news of the younger Ta la u tie will oblige Mr. Gibsou by inform ing him of it in order that it may be trans mitted to his father. ,-' The Reciprocity Treaty t'ruiu th Auirif an TLegintn.) ' We publish below the report of the com-mis.-ioii appointed under a resolution of Congress to investigate the charges of abuse and fraud alleged against this tnaiy of rec iprocity. The commission has made thor ough work of this mil tar, as the report shows, and not only probed the matter thoroughly on the Pacific Coast, but went to the Sandwich Islands, and there sifted the matter to the bottom. And the result proves the position the Register took last winter, that there was no foundation what ever for these charges against ,the treaty, and that the' arose out of certain monopolies! which had ariseu in this country, for which the treaty itself was iu no wise in fault. The people of the Hawaiian Islands are fully vindicated. Good faith on their part has been strictly observed, ami the treaty vin dicated. But public atteutiou has been fully called to this important subject, and let it be un derstnod in its true bearing and merits. This is the most important of all the treaties of the United States with foreign nations to the future greatness of this country. It is essential to the supremacy of the United States in the commerce f the Pacific Ocean. The Sandwich Islands furnish the key to the commerce of this great ocean. ! It is essential that the United States should control them, and not allow them to go Into the hands of England, France or any other rival commercial power. In 1S76, when this treaty was made by the authority of Con gress, it was made perfectly clear, that in order to protect the interests and commer cial supremacy of this country on the Paci fic Ocean, the Sandwich Islands would have to be annexed to the United States, and governed as prt of our country, or other wise a close all ittice made with them by a reciprocity treaty which would secure the control of them, and guard them from the control of any other nation. The Govern ment wisely makes this reciprocty treaty iu preference to annexation, which would have been an immense burden and expense to this country. The treaty secures to the people of the United States vast and grow- j ing reciprocal advantages in trade and bus- iness. But the great object of this treaty is i the control of our people on the Pacific i Ocean, and our trade with the immensely populous countries on the other side of this ocean. aaaaHaaaaHMaiaHM FOREIGN NEWS. A Challenge to the French Sin Fang, commander of the Black Flags, has issued the following challenge : " You French freebooter. Look like tiger of the world, seeking how to give vent to cr.tfty kc hemes and crnel deeds. There is no land for which your month doe not water, no riches that you do not desire to devour. Religious teaching you em ploy to undermine and i i pare the people. In ternational commerce is to you a pretext for swallowing countries. Your cruel ty is infinite, your wickedness extreme. Ou your strength you relv to debauch our women, which incites the indignation of the gods and men, and is un endurable in heaven and on earth. Now you want to avail yourselves of an excuse to en deavor to acquire Anam, and under pretext of international commerce to depart from a treaty, trying to befool the world in order to give vent to your martial designs and seize cities, storm towns, slaughtering official, robbing the rev enue, killing the innocent, and encourag ing secret bonds. Your outrages and your cruelties have reached far and wide. Your crimes are almost too numerous for words. Your shame could not be washed out, though you weee to exhauFt the waters of the West River. The issuer of this proclama tion having received command to avenge the wrongs innicted by yon, and having sworn with his army, with justice cu his side, to lead the troops to the glaaghter of your vile lot. his first desire was to proceed with lightning speed to tieat down your ratbita and exterminate your pack of foxes without pity. This would be a matter of great rejoicing to the heart of man, and would manifest heaven's vengeance; but re flecting that Hanoi is also territory belonging to the Government, and that the traders there are all respectable people, I could not eudure that the city should be reduced to ruins, and the young and old killed at the end of the sword. I therefore issue this proclamation that yon, you French robbers, who have already acted unlaw fully, may lead forth your crowd of dogs aud sheep to meet our army of heroes." The New Viceroy at Canton. New York. October 11. The Ilerald's Canton special saya: The new Viceroy, Chang Hai Shing, is merely a converted cutthroat. In his youth he flourished as a leader of a band of highwaymen, in . the northern provinces of China. The Government, finding it impossible I to capture him, made him a mandarin and gate him a viceroyship. t Freak f Satire. A fine wooled, strong lamb, one month old may be seen In a flock of ewes at the Punloa Sheep and Stock Ranch, Hawaii, that walks upon his hind leg, alone not using the two fore feet which are shorter, it appears much like a young woolly Kan garoo. It runs along upon its hind legs more like an emu than the kangaroo. Mr. Frank Spencer intends sending it to the British ITaseuia to aston ish the British pnblic. ARRIVAL OF THE STEAM SHIP ' KINAU. On Thursday morning at 7 o'clock the new inter inland steamer Kinan was signalled approaching from the southward." and shortly before nine o'clock ahe was safely moored at the Likelike wharf. The Kinau left 1'hiludelpLia oi the 25th of August and cleared off Cape Hi-h1oimi mi Suliday 2tith Au gust. Had line weather until the 2-Stli. wheti'nlie encountered a hurricane winch nek in froiu E.S.E., veering round to tl:- North, aud. finally rini.sliing from the Xoithward ami Xor:hwet. During this gale, the ship l.ehavrd -ell U.th when hove to and also when ronni.-;. From that time on had fine weather to ti.e f 'taits of Magellan, pacing Cape' Virgins, the east entrance, on the second of Oc tober. Anchored the same day off Sandy Point, and sailed again on tbe 3rd. at 10 a. v. Thafev ening it blew very hard fron the westward, and af 6:30 p. at. anchored attain in Angosto Bay, off the island of Terre del Fue'o. Watered hip ou the 4th and proceeded on the voyage same day. Strong N.W. and W.N.W. winds up to the 14th October. After this had the, S.E.' trades and fine weather to port. The dinieiii-ious of- th? Kiuan nave already been published in th-M column auil it i a pleasure now to be able to aol that she lias proved an ex cellent sea vessel, aiul fully realized the hopes of owners aud builders in regard to hpeed aud com fort. When she encountered the heavy weather referred to aliovc, two days out from Delaware Ilay, she wa very deep, having KijO tons of coal on board, bepidea 10 tons of general merchandise. The longest day's run made during the voyage was 22 miles and on another occasion she made 273. She averaged 200 miles a day or alxnit 11 knots an hour. . The fastest fpeed attained waa 1'2 knots, which wan made in a daad calm. Tito consumption of coal has not exceeded 8 tons a day, often being less wlen thi winds were favorable.s ,. The Kinan is the largest and V-t Htted of all the inter-island steamers. The saloon, the most im Mrtant part of a passenger steamer, has six skate rooms on each hide with two berths and a lounge in each. There are alao staterooms for flrst-cla.-s passengers .on tbe hurricane deck, affording a! to gether, "am pie accommodations for about bitty first class passengers. Each room ' is' furnished with' good beddii.g and bed linen, carpeting, nigs, elec tric light, kerosene lamp, and washing accommo dations. Also an electric bell that communicates with the steward's apartments, where there is a patent indicator to show him where his services are required. A not her specialty is the provision of a life belt fr each passenger, regarding which a. special notice to " passengers is placed in a conspic-'' uous position in each stateroom, informing them that life preservers may be found under each berth. They are put on in the same manner as an ordinary jacket." Persons' unacquainted ' with the adjust ment of them are requested to call upon the stew ard for information. '.-; ;. . The main saloon has sitting accommodations for about forty persons. It is brilliantly illuminated with ten electric lights, four of which are at the sides, and six immediately over the tables, iu ad dition to which are three kerosine swinging lamps to be used w hen the battery is not working. Pass ing aft ou the main deck, the next feature of im portance Is the kitchen," which' is' roomy,'- commo dious, and cleanly. In the pantry is some elegant : silver ware for general uso. The engine room is cool and roomy and the chief informed our repor- I tei that everything worked well, the vessel arriving j in perfect order in his department, ready for im mediate use. The engineers' room and mess room j are in close promimity to the engine room, and abaft this are the accommodations for steerage passengers, ice room, refrigerator, purser's bag gage rooms, etc. She is lit ted with steam winches j forward and aft, and also a patent capstan abaft everything. , heu orncEBS. The Kinau was brought out under the command of Captain von Kchmidt, not unknown to this com munity; Chief Officer, John B. C. Anderson; Sec ond Officer, Emil Clair; Chief-Engineer, T. 8. War ley; 1st Assistant, Nimrod Gingland; 2nd Assist ant, John Wilson; 3rd Assistant, Chas. Steele; Stevard;- Coleman. ' ' ' She made the trip in sixty-seven days, precisely the time calculated Upon by her owner. On Tues day, the 13th, the Kinau will take the place of the Likelike on the Hawaii route, under command of Captain King. The native Hawaiians took a particular interest in the arrival of this steamer, and numbers of them flocked on board on her arrival at the wharf, all bfeiug more or less delighted at the prospective travel to windward in the new boat, at the same time loudly expressing their gratitude to the Hon. K. G. Wilder in providing such a excellent steam er for the Island trade. We wish success to the Kinau and her owners. . .' THE S. S. BELL HOCK. This fine steamer with her troop of Portuguese immigrants was reported as off the coast soon after five o'clock on Wednesday afternoon. She arrived off the port about 7 v. m. the same evening and came to anchor near the Bell Buoy, and was shortly afterwards brought into port. She sailed from London on 16th August, made a good passage to St. Michaels, arriving there on 22nd. After tak ing in her living freight she sailed again' on 30th August, at 4 f. m. with 1411 passengers, among whoai were 530 children of twelve years of ago and und ;r. She crossed the equator iu Long. 29 W. 8th September. Had strong winds between the riv.r Plate and Magellan Straits. The lat er were entered on 24th September and cleared on 26th. Had strong winds from there to.. Lota, Chile. Arrived at Lota on 2nd October, took in coal and proceeded on her voyage on the 6th. She crossed the Equator agaiu in 127 W. ou 22ud Oc tober at 9 a. m. Had moderate 8. E. and N. E. Trades. Sighted Hawaii at 10 p. m. ou 30th and anchored in the roadstes-1 off Honolulu at 7 p. u. on 31st. . There were five births during the passage and eight deathB. Of those w ho died seven were child ren and the other was'an old man. There wore a few cases of measles daring the voyage but no deaths from that cause and the ship arrived hero with all her passengers and crew in sound condi tion and was admitted to pratique as soon as the Port Physician boarded her yesterday morning. The Bell Rock is under command of Captain James Alexander Dambrjck. She is a new ship built by D. P. Garbutt of Hull. She is the first of a pioneer Hue built for the cargo trade between London and Australia and New Zealand. She reg isters 20S0 tons and can carry 5000 tons of dead weight cargo. Her length is 250 feet, beam 43 and depth of hold 29 feet. She is expected to make the passage from London to Melbourne in 40 days car rying 4000 tons of cargo besides the coal for the voyage. Her engines were also built by D. P. Gar butt, her owner and builder. They are of 450 nom inal horse power, working up to an indicated pow er of 2,000. They arc fitted with steam' reversing gear, by the aid of which one mail can manage them even iu the most intricate navigation. She has two double-end steel boilers, heated by twelve fires. Her high and low-pressure cylinders arc 84 and 44 inches in diameter respectively.The length of the piston stroke is 51 inches and the number of revolutions made by the screw at fall speed is 54 per minute, which ia smooth water gives a speed of 12 H knots perhour. ' The vessel has not made the passage from Lota that she is capable of making because the coal supplied to her tAere proved to be of. rather an inferior quality for steam purposes. It was a coal locally raised, on estates owned by a Madame Carina and is not equal either to Eng lish or Welch or New South Wales coal for steam ing purposes. The ship's condensing apparatus is of capacity to produce a large supply of fresh wa ter. Aa a matter of fact about 2,000 gallons daily was supplied by it during the voyage. Besides her immigrant passengers she has brought out. 1,000 tons of cargo consigned to Messrs. Geo. W. Mac farlane & Co. She has also one cabin passenger in the person of a son of Mr. A. Hoffnung, a young man of 18 years of age, who was agreeably sur- I prised to meet his father here, having left him bat a few weeks ago in London. The Bell Bock will ga on to San Francisco when she has discharged her cargo, and will there load .wheat. This will add another to the already .unusual number of Steam ers leaving here for the Coast daring the month of November. The Spartan. - . When the lost (oat from the spartan went away from the ship, she carried besides the Captain's sou and two sailors, a passenger named Hibbeii whose parents live in Cin tinnati. Captain Croasley wrote to the father from Kelung, 'Formosa. . This is given in full in the World (a New York paper) of 8tb of October, in connection with an ac count of a pathetic. Interview which Mrs. Hibben had with -President Arthur at the Fifth Avenne Hotel, a few days previous. The distressed mother entreated the Presi dent to order the Naval authorities to assist in finding her son, and was promised that all that was possible should be done to find him if stilt alive. The story as told by the Captain is identical with that we lately published, taken from the Hongkong pa-H.-rj, except that it is fuller iii detail. It confirms the statement tht the natives of the island towards which the boat was pull ed (the name of which is Agincourt ou the charts) are frieudly, and that they declared that they had never seen the boat. The date of the Captain's letter is 26th August. A Chinese gunboat had visited all the is lands in the neighborhood with one of. Cap rain ' Crossley's 'men on board, but could gaju no news, and it seems but too probable that the missing men were Inst in the had weather whir-h ensued. WH VT THE PEOPLE SAY.

We don't believe this report ; it is too good to be true. Mr. Gladstone will not become a peer and disappear. Court Journal. The Yellow Fever. The yellow fever outbreak on the coast of Mexico has run its course for this year and is now subsiding. A more important question is whether its first appearance on the shores of the Pacific will ba its last, or whether the seeds of the diaease will survive the Winter and burst forth again in succeeding years, as yellow fever germs are so apt to do. When the disease acquires this feature of permaneucy, or of annual recur rence, it is said.in the language of medical science to have becoxae endemic. There are certain places ia the world where yellow fever has been en demio almost from time out of mind, and such localities' are a constant menace to other coun tries where the disease is not endemic, because they are the seed-plots which scatter the conta gion and keep it from dying out. Sometimes the places where yellow fever is endemic are not themselves such severe sufferers from the disease as other localities in which it is occasionally epi demic.' The case most in point is in the city of Havana, Cuba, where the fever, as report ed by the United States Commission of 1879, and has been epidemic ever since 1761. That is to say, there has been yellow fever at Havana every year . for more than a century. - ' When yellow fever appears at Peusacola or New . . Orleans, it . can always be traced to on origin in Havana. Now that yel low fever has acclimated itself to the Pacific Coast of Mexico, as it long ago did to the At lantic Coast, the possibility of its reappearance next year and in each succeeding year win ne regarded with apprehension, and if causes which are removable by human means have anything to do with the indemicity of yellow fever, it is manifestly important that an effort to remove those causes be made at once, befere numerous annual outbreaks give the disease a firm hold on Mazatlan, Gaaymas llermosuio ana otner Mex ican towns ISf Alta.

The story of an unfortunate man who fell from hia horse lately, at Anahol, oa Kaaai, and died of the injuries thus sustained, has been embellished by some newspaper Bcffbe with a moral about grog illicitly obtained and the carelessness of the police about auch infringements of the law..
