f.ainv weather in Honolulu has one bene-r.L-:?.l
effect. It shows the many defective
patches in our sidewalks. It is with diffi
culty that an expert pedestrian can steer
clear of them in broad daylight, but at
night they batllo the ingenuity of all. The
pools of witter on the sidewalks of Fort,
Deretania, Queen, in fact all the streets
where stone or wood is not laid, are a stand
ing disgrace to somebody. The question is,
is it the duty of the lload Supervisor, or
whose duty is it to remedy these disagree
Ti.:rglaries of a serious nature, and of a
deeply planned character, have recently
bocn discovered. The victims of the thefts,
so far as known at present, and the thieves,
arc Chinamen. Two of the culprits -were
bronght up on Monday, on suspicion anil re
nar.ded for further enquiry. A quantity of
the stolen property, thanks to the vigilance
of the police, has been recovered, but it is
do-;b;ful if all the depredations will ever be
reveled. What l;as been recovered so far
is the property ef Messrs. "Wing Wo Chan,

of the 1'. C. AlivnirrisiiK inspected samples
of three varieties of these carts at the Hon
olulu Carriage Kcpositorv. and was su much
struck with the elegance of their appearance
and perfect linish that he wants to make a i

varieties are the eart-phae ion, the piano-box
carts, and the Whiteehapel. There can be
no doubt that all three of the-e (which are
made both with and without tops) will be

wanting to start a two-wheeled cart.
The booksellers of this city report an
unusually heavy nui on Police G((.ifttr. of
late. The more they are warned not to
doit," the more they "do it" human
nature. People are repeatedly told not to
read such literature as is contained in the
Xew York illustrated journals, but they per
sist in doing so. The first paper a certain
class of leaders inquire for, on the arrival
of a mail, is the Police Gazette. There is
always a large supply to meet the demand.
But on Friday last the demand exceeded the
supply. The why or the wherefore of thw
heavy run was unknown to the vendors until
the secret was revealed by one who ' know
all about it." Amongst the subjects of
illustration were two bui-e-inced young men
who were well known in this city, viz :
Craig from Oregon, and Chessman from
Chicago. The Police Gazette dilates upon
the respective characters of the above-named
persons, and unfortunately introduces the
names of some of our highly respected citi
zens, in whose employ the runaways for
merly were. The likenesses of the two
young absconders are said to be good, and to
a local photographic artist is due the credit
of having exposed these ex-members of
We are indebted to Consul Laine for sev
eral valuable clippings from foreign papers,
and also for an animal issued by the Paeitie
Mutual Life Insurance Company. The
Count lirvietc for February, 1SS3, states that
the result of a very thorough examination
of the affairs of the Paeitie Mutual Life In
surance Company by Insurance Commis
sioner Maynard, shows our only local life
insurance company to be in a better con
dition than at any previous time in its his
tory. The year issj was exceedingly favor
able for the company, which did a large and
profitable business. The ex
cellent condition of the company warrants
the statement that its policy-holders
are amply secured. Already its business
has spread throughout the i apidly growing
settlements of the great Xorthwest, and
there is abundant indication that our only
local life insurance company will continue
to glow deeper and deeper into the graces of
the people of the entire Paeitie slope."
The old established Boca Brewing Com
pany of aii Francisco has. at the present
time, in this city, a representative of their
iirm in the person of Mr. Jacob Endres.
Mr. Endres came down in the S. S. Mari
posa, and brought with him samples of the
staple beverage of the Californians. which
he presented to Mr. E.C.Cunha. On Monday,
Mr. Cunha inserted one of Xoll's patent beer
faucets into a keg of lager, and produced
therefrom a most delicious and wholesome
malt liquor. It was pronounced by judges
and critics to be mild, full-bodied, and pos
sessing a .softness that can only be acquired
by a thorough knowledge of the art of brew
ing. We are told that it is to be found in
all parts of the United States, and will, no
doubt, in time be found in all parts of the
Hawaiian Islands. The Boca Brewing Co.
are exporting their ' brews " in ever in

There was no official business at the I

though it was announced that it would be
kept as a general holiday throughout the

would be closed. The so-called Govern

of the so-called Government holidays. The

on a daily paper is never ending. i
Out of consideration to the ladies the
Postmaster-General made arrangements to

valentines which were so marked and on
which the extra delivery fee is paid. TIiosl
who availed themselves of this very ob

part had to write the word "valentine"
above the address on the letter and pay the
island rate of postage instead of the city
rate; that is to say 2 cents per 1i ounce in
stead of 1 cent.
The British steamer Hankow, that brought

The Honolulu Election.
, l '.niMllillie.tte ).
There is 21 reat deal of nonsensical
talk and newspaper discussion about
the " national " and il independent "
vote of Honolulu in ISS- ascontrasted
with that of 1SSI. Mr. Gibson, an
opposition candidate in 1SS-, received
l,b votes; and Mr. Kaulukou as the
leading representative of the Gib.-on
policy and administration in lSJ re
ceives 1,1-1) votes, so that the votes of
the two election periods indicate no
appreciable falling oil in the popular
ity of the chief of the government.
Mr. J. O. Carter in is2 wa- a govern
men tcandidate in support of a Carter,
Armstrong ministry ; and also repre
sented then as much a now the im
maculate purity ol character, the fair
ness of view, and large-minded gener
osity of spirit, so emphatically attrib
uted to him, and yet he polled but Un
votes in support of the eminently
respectable, pure-minded, arid honest
government of his day. At the same
time in 1833 Kunuiakea and Kalau
koa, his associates in the recent can
vass. were candidates, and they
polled severally 277, and -01 vote-, or
altogether 4Si votes, which added to
the J. O. Carter vote of that year
would make S.'i'J votes: ju-t about the
same they have unitedly polled in
1SS1, when there was no division in
the opposition votes and they J.nd the
additional advantage of plenty of
money to buy tax receipts, and certain
clergymen, judges and two eminent
and influential native ladies as active
lunas on the day of the election.
