THIS DAY'S DOINGS.
lUothly meeting Y. M. C. A.,
OPINION OF THE COUNTRY.
We have jiibl received news from
jvoua mat me electioneering cam
paign in Ihatilislrict lias been opened
by large meetings of natives and
foreigners held at llookcna. Ad
dresses were made by Messrs. Pili
po, Nahinu and W. S. Brash and
the advisability of returning an in
dependent candidate was strongly
advocated so that the requirements
of the district might not be forgotten
in political differences, stronc; senti
ments of dissatisfaction being ex
pressed at the conduct of their late
representatives. The feeling of the
meetings was unanimously opposed
to the present administration and
many of their recent actions were
strongly criticized ; reference was
also made to Mr. Gibson's canvasser
who had been vainly trying to pre
judice the ".simple and ignorant"
Messrs. Naliinu ami Kaohe were
named as probable candidates for
youth Ivona district and Messrs. Vi
lipo and Kaai for North Kona. The
feeling of the meeting was very un
animous and strongly opposed to
the Gibson ministry and active mea
sures were taken to keep the dis
cussion of this all-important topic
prominently before the Electors.
A TRAMWAY WANTED.
If His Excellency the Premier,
who professes to be so anxious to
improve Honolulu and its surroun
dings in the interests of the mechanic
andartizan, had seen numbers of them
toiling through the sandy desert
from Waikiki church to the bridge
on Sunday, almost knee deep in
dust, and if he had heard their
curses, loud and long, at himself
and his colleagues because no repairs
had been made to this road, which
is the only outlet from Honolulu,
for six or eight months
his ears have tingled
at the good
things said of him. Some of the
" simple and ignorant people " even
wished that he would drive out there
and smash his carriage, then might
they hope for some of the dollars,
that are overflowing' from the Hawa
iian Treasury, to be expended in the
improvement of the road or in the
construction of a tramway which
they require and which he has for
bidden. PORTUGUESE IMMIGRATION.
The steamer Bell Bock left St.
Michaels on 30th August with about
fourteen hundred passengers, the
same number as was brought hy the
Hankow. This steamer will come
direct to Honolulu, not calling any
where for coal, and, as she is a new
vessel and this is her maiden voj'agc,
she may be expected to arrive in
this port on the 25th October, pos
sibly sooner. This will be the last
lot of Portuguese that may be ex
pected here for some time, although
the number coming fulls short of
those required by the planters some
months ago by seven hundred, as
His Excellency the Premier has de
cided, without consulting the plan
ters or the members of the Board of
Immigration, to suspend the impor
tation of Portuguese.
LATE FOREIGN NEWS.
Earthquakes and Tidal Disturbances in
Australia and Now Zoaland.
The most severe shock of earth
quake ever experienced at Gisborne,
New Zealand, took place on the
morning of August 1C, at 3 o'clock,
followed by several minor ones. At
first it seemed as if some powder
magazine had exploded, and tho re
port and concussion caused much
consternation among timid people.
In Queensland, on August 20, the
shock of an earthquake was felt at
3 a.m., extending along the coast as
far north as Bockhampton and in
land to Tarooin. The area was
very wide. The wave direction was
from S.W. to N.E., and the distur
bance lasted from 30 seconds in
some places to one minute in others.
At Brisbane, Toowoomba, Mary
borough and Bockhampton it was
particularly severe, buildings oscilla
ted to an alarming extent, bedsteads
knocked against Avails, and sleepers
were awakened in great fright.
Daly Waters reports: On Sunday,
2Gth instant, about midnight, we
were awakened by an explosion
resembling n shot fired in blasting
rock. There was continued rum
bling for a few minutes. Several
shocks of earthquake have been
reported from various places on the
cast coast of Tasmania during the
last five or six days. Similar shocks
were felt during the previous week.
A huaU tidal wave was noticed at
Franklin, near llobart, early in the
past week. At about half-past G
o'clock on cdncsday morning,
August 29, a peculiar tidal pheno
menon was observed by the lucul
pilots at Newcastle ( New South
Prom Western Australia we learn
that loud, booming sounds, resem
bling the firing of heavy guns, were
heard at several places along the
coast, on August 30. A tidaf wave
eight feet in height was observed at
Geraldton, the chief port of the
north, about 300 miles from here.
Persons walking along the beach
there state that they heard loud
rumbling sounds which caused
alarm. Suddenly the sea receded
about 100 yards, and then a high
wave returned with great force and
with a rushing noise. The pcopie
who were on the beach had to run
to save their lives, and all the boats
were thrown up and left high and
dry on the beach, swamped. On 28th
and 2!)th August there were tidal
disturbances in Sydney.
A tidal wave made its appearance
at Northern New Zealand on August
29, commencing at -1 a.m. The sea
rushed in violently, but took several
hours to recede. The disturbance
was slightly perceptible at 10 o'clock
August 28. A sharp shock of earth
quake was felt at Patea at half-past
1, about 100 miles north-west of

We do not hold ourselves responsible
for the. opinions e.vprer-scd by our cor
Editor Buuxtin: Can you tell
me why a bus is allowed to drive
and cany passengers without paying
any license fee. A passenger's license
has to be paid for hacks and I, for
one, don't consider it fair that any
bus should be allowed to compete,
for nothing, with our business.
This question was brought before
the Minister of the Interior about
four months ngo and still remains
unsettled. Dodcl has received a
certificate allowing him to carry
fourteen passengers in each bus, but
the legal point whether a license is
necessary has not been determined.
Some people hold that it is not
necessary as a bus runs to and from
a certain point without standing on
the streets. Ed. D. B.
