THIS DAY'S DOINGS.
At salesroom of .Lyons & -Levey,
at 10 o'clock, ,33 bags of potatoes.
Y.M.C.A., Rethcl vestry, nt 7:30
At noon jcstcnlny the ceremony
of unvcilirig the statue of tlto great
hero of Hawaii was begun.. The
btatuc had been picviously placed in
position on'its pedestal and was now
covered with two Hawaiian flags, so
arranged that, by pulling certain
wires the flags: would fall apart, and
being drawn away would disclose
the great statue. Hound its foot a
picket fence was erected to keep the
crowd away. In front' of it benches
were placed, and on these the mem
bers of the Assembly and the dele
gates were seated.
To the left of the statue (proper
right) a covered platform was erect
ed, on which were placed chairs for
His Majesty and suite, His Ex. J.
O. Domiuis, Hon. A. S. Cleghorn,
His Ex. K. M. Daggett, Major
"VVodchousc, Mods. Four, the cap
tains of the men-of-war, Their Ex.s
W. M. Gibson, S. K..Kaai, K. Pres
toir, J. K. Bush, Gov. P. 1'. Kanoa,
Hon. G. Rhodes, Hon. C. R. Bishop,
and other members of (lie House of
Nobles, etc; His Ex. "W. M. Gib
bon spoke as follows : " Your Maj
esty, Nobles, and gentlemen : By a
resolution of the Legislature of 1S78
a sum of $10,000 was voted for the
erection of-a monument commemor
ative of the discovery of these
.islands. This was placed in charge
of a Committee, and a statue of Ka-
mcliaiiiclia was chosen as the em
blem. This vote was passed on the
centennial of' the discovery. A
statue was procured, shipped .and
wrecked. Out of the insurance wc
were enabled to procure a repl(ca.
This has arrived and is on its pedes
tal. The committee arc now ready
to present it to Your Majesty, mid
to render an" account of their stew
The Hon.- J. M. Kapena then re
peated a similar address in Hawaii
an, after which Mr. Gibson formally
invited His, Majesty to unveil the
statue. This was done very speedily,
the whole arrangement working well,
and at the moment of unveiling the
Band struck up, salvos of artillery
boomed through the air, genuine
cheers rent the air, and the bunting
began to fly from the ilag-polcs.
The statue is a magnificent work of
Hit in bronze and gilt, representing!
the heio clad)in,a feather cloak and
helmet, with along tapu thrown over
his shoulder and hanging down in
front and behind below tho waist.
The dress poi lion is richly gilt, the
body is in plain bronze. In the left
hand, is a spcar,?and the tight hand
is .stretched out half open, and palm
upward, as if in the act of address
ing an audience. The, whole figure)
inclines forward. Round the base
arc four' intaglios in bronze, repre
senting scenes in the life of Kaincha-
nieha. After the cheering had ceas
ed 'His Ex. V. M. Gibbon read an
address coinmcmoratlvc of Kamclin-i
nicha, in which he recounted his!
great, nndgood qualities. The ad-'
dress js too long for our. columns,
otherwise wo would have great plcas
uic iu, presenting, it to our readers,
us it was very interesting. After this
the Hon. J. M. Kapena gnvo(n simi
lar address in Hawaiian. Both of
tho 'nddrcascs wore received with
cheers. The piocccdings having ter
minated three cheers weic given for
Kainchamcha, and His Majesty.
His Majesty and Miitc returned "to
the Palace; the rest lemaining to
partake of lunch- con. Tito gal
leiies of the Government Building
were crowded with ladies, and tho
whole army stood as a guard of
honor in a semi-circle round tko

been pulled down, and a new one

This not only gives additional room
on that narrow street but adds great

has been neatly plastered.
Oxe old lady caused particular
amusement yesterday by her lepcatcd
efforts to raise up a cheer on her
own account. She never cheered
with the othcis but her solitary' Hip-ip-ip-ip,
could be 'heard directly the
others weic done. And she was on
hand every time.
Oxk of the prisoneis, named Ku
kona, who was pardoned by His
Majesty in honor of bis Coionation
and who was released on Monday
morning, was in the hands of the po
lice again at 8 o'clock the same eve
ning. His case will come on to-day
for trial at the Police Court on a
charge of gros cheat. He offcicd a
valueless cheque or bill dated 1870
to a saloon-keeper, and wanted it
We find that the ccmeuti iron-lined

Welbon King Street is not yctrc

it will not repair it a subscription!
should be got up amongst all drivers
on that road. Ten cents, apiece
would do it. It was indeed the great
est icopycniqncci to everybody, and
a priceless hoop to that man who
loved to bo "merciful to his beast,"
and the man who repairs it will have
the blessings of all.
The conclusion of Mr. Gibson's
address yesterday was good: "On
his dying bed ho lay and when he
was asked what order ho had to give,
he merely said 'move on in my good
way.' Move on in my' good way.
Yes wc trust that tho Nation 'will
movo on in thy good way. That,
by priulqncc, and sagacious conduct,
by regai d for the rights of others

your Tuesday s paper,
thought the Coronation would bo
simply attended by, Hawaiians uust
have been disappointed, for very
fcw'cVcn of these 'wcrcfthcrc.' This
is cither a wilful or an unintentional
misrepresentation of the truth., I
have lived in Ilouolultt for the last
six or seven years past, and have
never, on any ocension, seen so large
a crowd or llaivauans ;, ami several
others, of mucli longer residence'
here, havemade a similar r statement
in my hearing. No good is ever
done by misicprcscutation and it is
a thing that a public journal should
never be guilty of. 4
Wc give space to the above piece
of hard and strong language becauso
wc like to Hear both sides of the
question but wc still hold to our
opinion, that, for such an occasion,
the attendance was not as huge as
would be expected Ed.
Mr. Ormstcad, special agent of the
Pacific Mail steamship Company,
andMr T. T. Gamble, Auckland
agent of the company, have had two
interviews ,vith tho Government in
regaul to the Pacific Mail Service.
Atthefirst interview the subject: was
discussed by the 'Premier.' 'and the
agents of the company. Owing to
the change of Qovornnicnt at Now
South Wales, and the consequent
unwillingness of tuc outgoing
Government to enter into a contract
which would bind their successors
for a lengthened period, Mr. Orm
stcad was unable to ' come to any
definite arrangement with New
South Wales. The New Zealand
Government had been informed of
this by the New South Wales
Government. That being the case,
the Government of this colony
declined to pledge themselves to
anything hi the-meantime. . A sub
sequent interview Jock place, the
result of which was, tjiat a cablc
granuwaS send to Sydney asking the
New South Wales Govei imicnt what
it intended to do in the matter.-' Mr.
Ormstcad was led to expect Hhat
New South Wales would favourably
consider the. question of a continua
tion of tho service. Nothing has,
up to tho present, trauspiicd as to
th6,iitontions of the Governments
of New South Wales and New Zea
land as to a continuance of thb,cx
isting auangcnicnt. Theie can lie
no doubt, however, ,that tho contract
must be renewed, as it is an absuluto
neco-sity for tho North Island of
jew .eaianu, at ail events., py tne
