Tho Late Mrs. G. Lucas
It became our painful duty, in
our last issue, to announco the de
mise of Mrs. Lucas, wife of Mr.
eorgc Lucas, proprietor of the
Honolulu Pinning Mills. Mrs. Lucas
was a native of Ireland, hud came to
Honolulu, along with her husband,
twenty-six years ago. From the
time of her first landing until recent
ly she had never been out of the
country indeed, had scarcely been
outside of Honolulu. She came
here a young woman, here most of
bur offspring 'were born to her, and
hero she nurtured and brought up a
family of seven children six sons
and one daughter.
For a considerable period past she
hnd been in failing health, and went
on a visit tj California, about two
months ago, vafjily hoping for Im
provement. Therm she became gra
dually worj, and left for home, in
a weak condition,) by the D. C.
Murray, on Sept. 10y. She continued
to decline yttil Oct. ';i, when, within
bight of l.ynd and ncir to home and
loved oiics, she ceased to breathe
the broatli tint is mortal, and her
spirit paa-eJ into the unseen land
beyond. Hoi- husband and her little
son Albert were with her during her
suffering, and did all in their power
to comfort and soothe.
At the time of her death the D. C.
Murray was becalmed off the east
cud of this island. Capt. Jenk.-
Kindly scut a boat nshoie to Mr.
C'uniiniugs' Plantation, with a re
quest to telephone to Honolulu.
The Mcunicr Waimanalo was at once
di -patched from here to tow the
vessel at omul to port,' where she
anived shortly after dark the same
evening. The deceased was then re
moved to her late residence in
Ku';ui Place.
Tin- funerul took place yesterday
afternoon, and was largely attended
by all classes of the community.
Tlio procession started from the
iainily residence, led by the Rev.
Dr. Damon. The hearse came next,
containing the coffin covered with
beautiful floral wreaths, the love
olleiings of sad hearts and kind
bands. Then followed tho mourn
ing carriages with tho relatives of
the deceased. After these about
eighty other vehicles and a great
many pedestrians fell into lino. The
pi-oct-ation proceeded to Nuunnti
Coiumery. tho place of interment.
Resides tho regular burial service,
which was feelingly nnd impressively
recited by Dr. Damon, several
sactcd pieces appropiiate to the oo
casion were sung by friends.
Thus, at the comparatively early
ago of 52, has ended the earthly
pilgrimage of a true woman. Vo
npeak from persoual knowledge when
ivo bay that Mrs. Lucas was a de
If he
voted wife, a fond mother, and a
sympathetic ft lend. We knew' her
tw a plain, patient, unostentatious,
even-minded, true-hearted woman,
who never had an unkind word to
say of others, and whose single con
cent and sole happiness were in
separably associated with her family
and her home. It is no misrepre
sentation nor exaggeration (o say
that she was most esteemed and
loved by those who knew her best
and longest.

A frame building was left on
Richard street all last night.
An Hon. member for Honolulu
was arrested for drunkenness Wed
nesday night, but was let go.
A native woman fell down in a fit
on Nutianu street yesterday after
noon. She was speedily brought to.
One side of the Lady Lainpson is

The Kuokoa will be printed on

ed there after that date.
Real estate at Waikiki and the
Park is getting to be very valuable.
High prices have been given and we
hear that still higher prices arc
asked. All the sales, so far, have
been private.
Wr arc told a littleyarn about the
wax-works: A young gentleman
going in at the door mistook tho
figure of the New Zealand gold
digger behind the table for- the
check-taker, and tried to pay his
money to him.
Wr. acknowledge the receipt, with
thanks of ourselves and employees,
of n generous slice of the Dr. and
Mrs. Lowell Smith's Golden Wed
ding cake, and quote the ollieo boys'
remark, "If they are as sweet as
the cake is, how nice they must be."
We are glad to sec by advertise
ment in another column that Mr.
Kohler will give a concert on Satur
day afternoon next, which, no doubt
will bo very convenient for those
ladies and their families who cannot
attend Mr. Holder's musical enter
tainment In the evening.
Tin: hack police arc keeping up
their vigilance. Badges for licensed
drivers will probably bo issued next
week. The first arrest under the
now regulations was made on Wed
nesday. Another was made yester
day. Ahem! that is to say well, we
do not mind admitting that His
Majesty 1ms sonic friends as well as
other folks. A very nice young
lady of the Imole persuasion signifies
her willingness to pl.iy a Coronation
March or waltz which she is prac
ticing every day for that auspicious
occasion. Communicated,
It is said that the 4dvertiser
tosses off the subject of Hawaiian
National Coinage as though it were
a matter a dabster could handle;
but wo fancy it is a subject which
will tax the minds of our best men
to decido tho how and when. It
may pander to national vanity, but
that is not the only thing to be con
sidered. Why not accept the coin
age of the United States or of Kng
laud as a national coinage here, and
so save all trouble and expense. The
coinage of the United States would
bo preferable, as its nomenclature is
in common use here.
Anoiiieu runaway yesterday.
Karly in tho morning a double team
was loading up with pigs, when the
horses got startled and ran away.
They Were pluckily pulled up by a

after a run of some 100 yards.
A scusomniui has asked us to
mention in the columns of our paper
that, in his opinion, the Oahu Col
lege 'bus is diivcu too fast. Ho is
afraid that some day there will be an
accident, and as it is generally full
of young people the results might bo
It would be a goodthing if peo
ple driving round the Paik would
not drivo in each other's tracks, as
it cuts the grass up frightfully anil
leaves the soil exposed to be blown
away by the wind, and the tracks
arc wide enough to allow every one
a fresh place to drive over.

Considerable has been said from
time to time in our columns relative
to Artesian Well boring in this King
dom, and out of the many wells that
have been sunk few have failed to
offer up the material flow. During
the past four months Mr. John Ash-
Icy, (well-known in conjunction with
Mr. Fcsslcr in the many wells they
have sunk together), has been
boring artesian wells at Waialua,
and has sunk two for Mr. Silva and
two for Mr. Mcndosa on their
ranches lit that district. These wells
are 400 feet deep and water raises
20 feet G inches above the level of
the sea from each of them. Mr
Silva is intending to sink from 15 to
20 more wells on his immense
ranches through Waialua, and has
sent East for a complete rig to per
form the works. Mr. Ashley is still
boring away on two more contracts
for Mr. Silva, and the people in the
neighborhoad praise the name of
John Ashley and the owners Messrs
Silva and Mendosa, are highly satis
lied with the success attained by this
thoroughly qualified artisan.
