A CITY GOVERNMENT.
' i concerning mo interests ot tne
5 (habitants of Honolulu, present mul
liojpcctivc, the project of establish
ing some ktml of n city government
is the most important of the racn
Biircs that will probably come be
fore the Legislature. It is undcr
ptnuil that the Ministry will favor it,
if for no other reason, because they
or.uuot spare from other duties the
time required to properly look after
the multifarious, little mid great,
affairs of this rapidly growing city.
The roads and streets require n great
deal more work done upon them than
the Road Supervisor of Oahu can
possibly find time for, and attend to
his duties outside the city. The
streets arc insufllcicntly lighted it
is a trite saying that a street lamp is
of more value than a policeman.
There are a dozen other matters con
nected with the necessary and pro
per government of a city that wc
might mention, and that will readily
suggest themselves to our readers.
But let it be remembered, that every-,
thing points to great future growth
of this city of Honolulu, in the
course of which it will become im
peratively necessary to widen and
straighten some of the now con
tracted thoroughfares, and that the
earlier this work is begun the less
burdensome will be the cost.
The "solid men" of Honolulu
owe it to the public, as well as to a
wise consideration of their own in
terests, to see that a carefully con
sidered plan for a city government is
laid before the Assembly.
Mr. R. Liskman met with a pain
ful though not serious accident on
Sunday afternoon. Himself and
daughter with a child were driving
on the Pawaa road, when one of the
hind wheels of the wagon came off
through the dropping of a nut,
causing the wagon to tip and throw
ing Mr. Lishman to the ground,
8evcioly bruising his face and shoul
der. The horse started to gallop,
but being a quiet animal, soon
moderated its pace, and Miss Lish
man, after lifting the child to the
ground over the tail of the wagon,
jumped safely to the ground herself.
The horse was secured without fur
In spite of a prohibitory law and in
spite of customs guards and police,
it appears that very considerable
quantities of opium find their way
i into the country. We hear reports
from the remote districts, especially
on Hawaii, in the neighborhood of
Hilo, of a great deal of opium smok
ing carried on, not only among the
Chinese, but native men and women
as well. The latter, under the opium
infatuation, wc arc told, spend all
they earn for the drug and then
steal the means of still further grati
fication. The&e arc the beauties of
a large importation of Chinese if
not gin, then opium or both. Alas
for the Hawaiiansl
The Right Rev. Bishop of Olba
visited Lahuina last Wednesday morn
ing, and had u fine reception. The
entrance to the church was nicely
decorated with different niottos and
evergreens, and very tasty lights,
the handy work of Father Andrea.
The Right Rev. gentleman received
many callers ; after which he visited
Kuanapali and Ilonokohau, and on
returning to Lahaina ho left for

So far, but few of the Representa
tives elect have arrived in town,
two from Hawaii and one from Mo
lokai being all that Ave have heard
of, so that there will be but a small
showing of " the assembled wisdom
of the nation " at the opening on
Saturday, aside from the Nobles.
Sunday's steamers will doubtless re
lieve the public mind in this respect.
A story comes from Knilna in
Koolau on this Island about the
Chinaman who shot at a native wo
man recently, and then committed
suicide. It is to the effect that the
woman, who is a bad character,
bamboozed and worried the China
man until he was crazed ; that after
the shooting, the natives tied hiin
tightly hand and foot with a rope,
and then with another rope attached
to his body brutally dragged him
about and beat him over the head
and body, it was supposed breaking
some of his ribs. If this is true, it
is not so very strange that he
A Lahaina correspondent says
that drunkenness is on the increase
iu that town. Bad beer and worse
gin, thanks to tho Chinese pie-
shops, alias gin-shops, are plenti
ful. It is intimated that dealers in
the latter article arc laying in large
stocks, perhaps in anticipation of the
prospective prohibitory law. A stab
bing affray on the street is reported
as having occurred last week, where
in a native was stabbed in five places
presumably slight cuts the incit
ing cause being drink.
Mn. Editok: Having arrived
here some months ago from Califor
nia, accompanied by my wife a
white lady and consequently hav
ing no " Kanaka brats " to be edu
cated at public expense ; as I am not
a voter and consequently belong to
no political party am a free-thinker
and attend the Church supposed to
have the most influence ; as my busi
ness and income arc small; as I
amuse myself in finding fault with
and slandering people who came
here years before I did, and who
do not think as I do ; I feel myself
capable of filling any olllce in the
Kingdom, from the Throne down to
policeman. My social standing is
not particularly high, and I can
therefore act without fear of giving
offense to friends, for the reason
that I have next to none. I left
California under an assumed name,
and so there is no fear of any l da
tives following me hither. I am the
" black sheep " of the flock, left to
"paddle ray own canoe," and I
mean to do it. I have triqd writing
bosh and buncombe for newspapers,
and have tooted my own horn per
sistently, until people stopped their
cars at my noise ; und now I have
one resource left, and that is to ask
this Kanaka Government to give ino
an oflice, with good pay of c mrse,
and not much to do. Don't you
think, Mr. Editor, that with all the
foregwing recited qualifications, I
ought to get a fat office ? Tho Legis
lature will bo bound to do something
for me. Please intimate that I will
consent to stay in this country fo ,
say, S."),000 a year.

An accident of a very painful, if
not serious character, occurred yes
terday afternoon on board the stmr.
Kilauca Hou, lying at the Esplanade.
The crew wore engaged in taking on
board railroad material for Kahului.
A piece of iron called a switch had
just been received, and the steamer's
mate, named Daniel McGregor, was
in the act of shoving it into ,plaee,
when the slings of a similar piece be
ing hoisted in, parted, and his head
was jammed between the two
switches, cutting him severely on the
neck and breaking his jaw iu two
places. He was taken to the Queen's
Hospital, and the wound in the neck
sewed up. It will probably take a
long time for the broken jaw to be
