Hawaiian in the Samoan Islands-
Whea Dr. Steubel. the Interim Consul for
Germany at tbe Samoan Islands, was in
Honolulu, he was asked by His Excellency
the MI. lister of Foreign Affairs to obtain
and transmit such information aa he could
about the native Hawaiians who are living
in that part of tbe world. 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
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."

Shing, is merely a converted cutthroat. In his
youth he flourished as a leader of a band of

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
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
, 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
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.
. 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
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

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

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.. In point of
fact the unfortunate man got drank on liquor
which he had legally obtained and which was
shipped to him from Honolulu in a demijohn. This
fact makes the drunkenness no leas deplorable bat
it indicate another moral, Tit, " When you want
to show your spite against the police be sure of
your facts." .
