D. Ii. Kinimaka was born July 5th, 1851, at Palaueka, Holualoa, North Kona, Hawaii. He was a lineal de scendant of the Kau line of Chiefs. His grandfather was Kapiiwi, a High Chief of Kau, and his grandmother Was Kahikoloa, a High Chiefess of Maui, who begat his father, Keawea muhi Kinimaka. The said Keawea mahi Kinimaka was first married to Haaheo Kaniu, a High Chiefess, the foster-mother of His Majesty the King, the circumstances attending which are fully described on page 72 of the " Honolulu Almanac and Di rectory.'' Haaheo Kaniu died with out any issue. Her husband again married one Pal, a halfTahitian wo man, a descendant from some Tahi tian chiefs, hy whom he had issue one daughter and two sons, viz: Haa heo Kaniu, (Mrs William P. Luraa heihei), the latu David Leleo, and Kaikala Kinimaka. During his young days Leleo was always obedient to his parents, and was ever ready to do what he was ordered. The same spirit character ized him when at school at St. Al ban's College, and at Luaehu College, Dahaina, under the priucipalship and tutorship of the Veuerable Archdea con Ilev. George Mason, M. A, Many of his schoolmates now miss him. He married June 11, 1374, to Hannah Keolaokalaau, and has issue ot five children, four daughters and a son, who now mourn the loss of a kind and affectionate father. As t' his military career, the writer can give only a brief account. He first entered into military ranks as a private volunteer in the ranks of the cavalry corps, during the reign of His Majesty Kamehameha V. In 1869 he joined the Royal Guards as a private. He was soon promoted to the rank of corporal. At the time of the barracks riot in 187o, during the reign of His late Majesty L,uualilo, and nearing the close of the riot, the then Cabinet ministers an. 1 colonel of the House hold troops asked, who of the soldiers would readily lay down their arms and swear allegiance to support their King and tlie Constitution? Corporal Kinimaka was the first man to leave ! the ranks, and accompanied by about twenty others, they marched down to the armory and surrendered them selves. During the temporary dis bandment of the Royal Guards, Kini maka was engagad as guard at Oahu Prison. At the re-organization of the Royal Guards in 1874, after the acces sion of His Majesty King Kalakaua, he again enlisted, and was first ap pointed sergeant, then sub-lieutenant, and afterwards second lieutenant. On the 11th of August, 1874, he was again promoted and commissioned as first lieutenant, and his star seeirfed always to have been in the ascendant. On February 12th, 1878, the fourth anni versary of His Majesty's accession, he was commissioned s captain. On September 1st, 18S0, he was appointed as Privy Councillor ; January 19th, 1SS1, was commissioned as major of the King's Guard and of the volunteer forces, a post which he fulfilled cred itably and faithfully. On February 19th, 1SS3, he was appointed a mem ber of the Board of Education, and on March 4th, 1884, was commissioned as brevet lieutenant-colonel of the King's Guard, a commission which he never saw, anil only enjoyed the rank and title for six days, when he died March 10th, 1SS4, on the road at Kaumalu- malu, Holualoa, North Kona, Hawaii (a road which was first built and laid out by his father). On the day of his death ho wrote a letter of instruction to Captain the Hon. Jno. T. Baker, addressing him as Captain, saying, I address you as Captain, for I know by this time you have received your commis sion as such." He then goes on to give the necessary instructions to his subordinate officer as to his duties as captain; also as to His Majesty's re turn about firing a salute from the shore battery, and about salutes on the 17th instant. But Captain Baker was more than astounded to find that by the same steamer that brought down the letter of instruction from his superior officer, he should also re ceive his dead body. The deceased Brevet Lieutenant Colonel was the only officer of native Hawaiian birth, who hud risen from the ranks as a private to his late posi tion. He was one of the finest look ing men in the service. In every de partment of life, the deceased soldier did his duty with fidelity and with" great precaution, for which he was well liked bv those above and below him, including the soldiers of his corps. The deceased officer was the recip ient of a few royal favors in the way of royal decorations, viz : Knight Companion of the Royal Order of the Crown of Hawaii, con ferred on him by His Majesty in com memoration of the Corouatiou. Knight Companion of the Royal Order of Takovo, conferred on him by His Majesty Milan I, King of Seryia. Knight Companion of the Royal Order of the Crown of Siam, conferred on him by His Majesty the King of Siam. THE LABOR QUESTION IN QUEENSLAND. At the present day the question of procuring supplies of suitable labor seems to be a difficult one in all trop ical and sub-tropical countries. The difficulty weighs heavily enough upon the sugar producers of these islands but they do not seem to be the worst off of any if we may judge from the accounts that reach us from British Colonies. Both in the Crown colony of Fiji and in Queensland which has its own representative institutions a.;d is practically independent in all matters of government relating to its internal affairs the pi 'iters seem to have much reason to complain of ob stacles being put in their way which greatly enhance the natural difficul ties of the labor supply. Iu Fiji the excuse is a philanthropic care of the laborers. To this there is added in Queensland the cant of the colonial demagogue whose face is set against an employer or a capitalist on all oc casions simply because he is such. A former government had negotiated terms with the Indian Government for the introduction of coolies. A turn of the political wheel brought into power a neAT set of men whose chief informs the Indian Government that Queensland wants no coolies and the paper that repiesents his views discusses the labor question after this fashion: "If the clamorous advocates lor coloured labour are allowed to have their way the whole industrial character of the colony will be ulti mately changed. It will be governed by an oligarchy of wealthy planters and squatters. The masses of the population will be servile. Mr. Griffith and his party have been elected for the express purpose of pre venting such a condition of things. One of the great war cries of the late electoral campaign was "Queens land for Europeans.'' His (Mr. Griffith's) action could not have been different. Be the results what they may to the omnivorous planters, the action is the logical result of the general election. ' The big capitalists may sutler through his de cision, but it does not by any means follow that the sugar industry will be ruined. It may possibly eventuate that it will be transformed into a le gitimate agricultural pursuit by agri culturists, instead of a planter's mo nopoly by absentee proprietors. We shall infinitely prefer the former." In regard to the importation of Pa cific Islanders the Queensland laws are already very stringent hut tho new premier proposes, to amend them by introducing a bill of whose provis ions the following Is an abstract: No person shall be employed as th master, or as a mate, of a ship intend ed to carry native passengers from the Pacific Island to Queensland, or as the agent of an intending employer on board of any such ship, unless he has been approved by tho Minister aa a fit person to be so employed. Nt person shall pay or give, to the mas ter of any ship employed in carrying passengers from the Pacific Islands to Queensland, or any other person em ployed thereon, .any sum of money or other valuable consideration, the amount whereof is dependant either in whole or in part upon the number of passengers conveyed to Queensland. But the remuneration of the master of every such ship, and of every other person employed thereon, shall bo at a fixed rate, either for the voyage or dependant wholly upon the time occu pied In the voyage. If the provisions of this section are violated in respect of any ship, whether by tho owner, charterer, or any other person, the ship, her tackle, apparel, and furni ture.shall be forfeited, to her Majesty, and the person otTending shall also be liable to a penalty of 100. A detailed statement of all expenditure incurred in and about every voyage ot a ship employed in carrying passengers from the Pacific Islands, verified by the solemn declaration of the owner, charterer, or agent, shall be trans mitted within four weeks alter the arrival of the ship iu 'Queensland to the immigration agent: For every breach of the provisionsof this section the owner, charterer, and agent shall each bo liable to a penalty of 500. It shall not be lawful to sell, suppfy, or give to any islander any fireurms, bullets, leaden shot, gunpowder, or other explosive substance. It shall not be lawful to employ any islander in any other occupation than tropical or semi-tropical agriculture which shall mean field work in connection with the cultivation of sugar cane, cotton, tea, coffee, rice, spices,or other tropical or semi-tropical productions or fruits;but shall not include (a) Tho working of or attending upon ma chinery used in making the products thereof mark-table; (b) The business of grooms or coachmen; (c) The busi ness of horse-driving or carting, ex cept in field work; or (d) Domestic or household service. A return which was issued from the Treasury at Brisbane on 28th January shows that in addition tc South Sea Islanders, Queensland has received an immigration of laborers during the year 188. as follows: Chinese 2,578 Malays 5G5 Maltese 62 Natives of India 30 Making a total of 3,235 which falls considerably below the figure repre senting the influx of laborers to this country in the same period. Against these arrivals there was to be set an exodus of Chinamen to the number of J,09. Of these however C77 went away with permits which enable them to return. The others preferred the refund of their poll tax and are no doubt gone for good. Every man is born with a mentor. That's his couscieuce. When he gets older be often gets a tormentor. That's his wife. i ) it .f s - ! "1 1 ii
