THE .Oimo
Tuesday, November 11, 1884.
A remark in Monday's bulletin
shows the editor has taken the wild
misstatements of the Opposition
papers for gospel instead of seeking
to make himself acquainted, with
facts by a study of official statistics,
which cannot be gainsayed. He says:
"The outcry against borrowing has,
however, been due to the fact that
the necessity for borrowing has, to a
large extent, been created by the
present Government, In having
quandered the ample revenues It
.came, heirJt to, in unproductive, and
junimprpving services." . There is not
, a particle of foundation for this cbarge
.against, tue present . uovern ment.-
inej (.previous ; uoyernment u camo
down to the Assembly of 18S2 with, i
estimates ofexpenditure,a million, in
jexcess , ol estimatea,. revenue.; The
King's speech pn opening tbq session
gave, au-i iutima'toq : that a series
1 4. ' I . . '
luau uui 10 speuiiiu ? xjurposes, one
4forj;imtti2rationlau4 others for 'each
great public, improvement, as' it may
be a"pproyed!,J,!vpuldj bq pre3,onted;to
the Assembly. , A bill fr ,the immi
gration loan of 5o00jUU0 was brought
in cauv iu .mc owaiwu, iu. umera
were to follow.. ... That is the origin of
the Loan Act of 1882. The ''necessity
forprrQwing occurred here precise
1 - i- 1 ,1 I Al Ji
iy4 ita ii uas, uuue iu wtuer countries,
from the ; desirability of s. encouraging,
immigration and of . undertaking ex-
pensive public works. , , ,
We should vlike those who accuse
the, present Government of f. squan-
dering; the ample revenues it came
heir; to in unproductive andunim -
proying services" to descend from
the realms of declamation and ; im
agination, and condescend to give us
some details explanatory of their
loud-sounding sentences. It has been
a favorite cry with the Opposition
that the coronation v was . a waste of
money, and that certain expenses in
curred for foreign missions might
have been saved. . Wo know of no
other items as to which any charge of
extravagance- has been even argued.
What does the whole thine; amount
to ? About the hundredth part of the
expenditure of ; the biennial period.
The mean and spiteful souls who
grudge, the King his coronation and
hie representation at foreign Courts
by a gallant young Hawaiian are
most of them extravagant enough
themselves .in their personal expendi
ture, and those that are not would
grudge anybody anything out of
which they did not make a personal
profit. But if it had all been a " waste
and an extravagance" (which we do
not for a moment admit), what is
there in the sum total of the whole of
it to embarrass the country, or be
talked about as a squandering of
ample revenues? Such talk is the
broadest of farce. Four times as
much money was absolutely" irre
trievably wasted in the building of
the Palace under the management
of the previous Ministries wasted
through ignorance and incompetence,
and without that sanction of the
Legislature, which was given to the
so-called extravagances of the present
Ministry. The friends of the Opposi
tion were in power then, and no one
had a word to say. '
The departed Chiefess, Mrs. Pauahi
Bishop, has left tbe vast properties
which she inherited from her parents
and from Her Highness the late
Governess Ruth Keelikolani as an
endowment for two boarding schools
to be called the Kamehameha
Schools, one for boys and the other
for girls. Life interests in various
lands have been willed to Hon. Mr.
Bishop, Princess Uluikolani, Prin
cess Kaiulani and some others, but
tlie great estate in its entirety will
eventually revert almost intact to the
Trustees to whom the foundation of
the schools has been entrusted, and
will remain forever as an endowment
for these schools and for the benefit
of orphan and indigent children, and
as a monument more enduring than
any bronze of the aloha for her race
of the lamented testatrix and of the
self-abnegation -of her husband whose
guiding hand is conspicuously shown
in this generous testament.
So many strange statements as to
the contents bf this will have been
floating about: the town - during--the
last few days that we havw thought it
well to present in thls issue an ib
stract of fits .provisions. It has not
been usual, .up .to the present time 1 in
this country, ta give publicity to the
wills and bequests bf i private iiidivid-

They involve not merely tho founda-
J tion and maintenance of , two valuable
schools, but they also provide for the
orphan and the miserable of Hawaiian
blood for all time to come. They are
accompanied by words of . wisdom in
tended as counsel for the Trustees, to
whom this great national work is
entrusted., "It is .my. desire," says
the testatrix in the last codicil of the
will made less than a 'month aero,
work in regard to said schools as far
as they go ; "r and she authorizes them
to defer action in regard to the girls'
school until that for boys "be thor
oughly' equipped and in full work,
and, if necessary, until the various
life interests iu the estates shall fall
in. -:
Praise of this patriotic bequest
would be mere impertinence. To
those who have the means' we sav
"go and do likewise."
They prosecute the work of cloth
ing their rocky hills with trees in an
earnest manner in Hongkeng. This
planting has been going on for some
time, and it is stated that it has ef-
fected almost as much change in the
climate as in the appearance of the
country. We give below an extract
from tho last annual report of the of-
ficial who Is in charge of the work,
showing what had been done by .his
department during one year. This
planting work is in addition to that
always going on in the nurseries,
from which not only most of the 311,
963 trees planted out were taken, but
the public are freely supplied with
young pines, and twenty-five War
dian cases were filled for the Mauri
tius Government. A large ravine
near the city has also been stocked
with ferns from these nurseries, be
sides a number of roadsiGe rockeries.
From the lengthy report out of which
we have made our extract we acquire
the conviction that the work of af-
forestation in Hongkong is being done
in a very thorough and systematic
manner, and has also been very sue-
ncef,il Thp fnllnwino- is Hip ovfrnof
referred to:
"The following table gives the

,cess tpw moat careful uaijy direction
and supervision of tbe. operations is
necessary. . The. selection of sites for
plantations is very , mucb, dependent
on the nlaces , which, can bo.. secured
for uursesies; tbese are very, few. and
often at great distances apart, and
tbe. plantations musthe near:thtt nur-
series in order to minimize the carry-
I ing distauces, both for economy and
to insure the trees being as short a
time as possible out of tbe ground.
, "Sowing in situ is done at less than
one-third of the cost of . planting,
therefore even if there are fifty per
cent of failures in this system. there

growth of grass, to shelter . tho tender
plants, and where the aspect is not
to mucli exposed to the sun.. The
in situ work which has been, dono
may be regarded on the . whole as a
decided success."
. As to the other work which, the
department carries on '"besides tho
rearing and planting of trees, the
lollowing paragraph from the same
report may give some idea;
"In the streets and roads there are
upwards of 3,600 trees under th&jnan
agement of this department, besides
the various rockeries and ferneries.
The trees are standing generally at
about 30 feet apart and consist chiefly
of "banians" (Ficus retusa. ) These
trees, if at an uniform distance of 30
feet apart, would represent anavenuo
bf 10 miles in length. The. whole f
these have to be pruned about twice
a year to keep them within bounds
from interfering with adf
ings and to permit unimpeded traffic
underneath them.
The Friend for Noyember ia a chatty
number, and deals with a great rariety of
subjects. The increased leisure enjoyed by
the Reverend Editor since his retirement
from regular ministerial duty will doubtless
redound to the advantage of . this time
honored periodical, the editing of -which is
evidently with him "a labor of love."
Under the title, " The last ol the Kameha-
mehas," the number opens with a reference
to the death of the late Mrs. C. R. Bishop,
an account of her funeral, and of her gene-
ealogy, showing her descent on the mother's
Be directly from the first Kamehameha.
AmonS articles of interest may be noticed
ne emiuea vvno is x. jjwigui iiunt t " a
question which is answered, to tho effect
that he was a missionary in Kau, Hawaii,
in 1845, and subsequently a teacher at
Lahainaluna, and the translator kito Ha
waiian of some useful text-books. When
population began to pour into San Francisco
he was sent for to be pastor of a Congrega
tional Church there. The question thus
answered had been caused by a publication
containing lectures en "The Past antf
Present of the Sandwiclv Islands'," which he
delivered in San Francisco in 1853. Notices of
the lives and doaths of Mr. J. O. Lyon s and
Rer. D. B. Lyman : Reviews of Fro m the
Forecastle to tho Pulpit and 3Irs. Lydia
Bingham Coan's Memorial of the late vener
able Titus Coan, of Hilo; and articles on
Arctic Exploration, the Annual Meeting of
the Sailors' Home, and on Preaching in
Honol ulu, are among the editorial contribu
tions to ths number. From the Y. M. 0. A.
page, we learn that Mr. P. C. Jones will
take up a new book-keeping olasg on Monday -next.
