AN EASY WAY TO A LIVINC.
Residents out on the plains, be
tween Honolulu ami l'muihou, have
made frequent complaints to this
ofllcc of their horses being stolen from
their yards and paddocks at night..
A gentleman living on King street,
in the neighborhood above indicated,
reported this morning that Ins horse
had recently been taken from his
yard. One man in particular, a
native named Napoleon, is said to
be engaged in this discreditable and
annoying practice, only he is too
sharp to allow himself to be caught
in the act. The object sought is, a
reward for the return of the stolen
animal. People's horses arc taken
and' secreted tint" owners offer a
reward for their recovery, there
upon the thief produces the horses
and claims the rewaul. A very easy
method of making a living, but not
exactly in accordance with the con
stitution, nor agreeable to the views
of poor people who have a natural
aversion to buying the same horse a
half dozen times without selling
him once. If one person, as lcport
ed, is well known to be the princi
pal operator in this novel business,
there should be no insurmountable
obstacle to his being caught in the
act. It is manifestly the duty of
the police to take the matter in
hand, and if no other expedient bo
available, the person suspected can
be placed under watch.
A POINTED CONCLUSION.
The "pointed conclusion" of our
article on harbor accommodation, in
yesterday's issue, to the effect that
some 300 acre's of tide land, the
property of two private gentlemen,
should be purchased by the Govern
ment, was reached with the full
knowledge of the fact that "there is
no provision whatever in the Appro
priation Act for this expenditure."
But we presume it is quite within
the province of the Government to
inaugurate negotiations, with the
view of bringing the matter before
the Legislature at its next meeting,
and asking for an appropriation for
the purchase of the land. This is
what our reference to the matter
was intended to suggest. Its
urgency is apparent from a fact
known to us, that a wealthy foreign
corporation W'U probably endeavor
to effect a purchase of the land in
question. Whether the present
owners arc desirous of selling, or
even willing to do so, we are not
aware. The conclusion of the mat
ter is this, the laud on the other side
of the harbor should become the
property of the Government, and
the longer negotiations aiming at
that object are deferred, the more
difficult and costly 11133' be its
THE PLOT DEVELOPS.
The programme opened in last
"session of the Legislative Assembly
is being gradually acted out. The
various schemes engineered through
the llouse for pioviding for favo
rites at the people's expense, uro
becoming more jntelligiblc to the
public, from day to day. One of
the permanent settlements passed
with such proluso liberality of other
people's money by the servilo majo
rity was explained a few days ago
in the Advertiser's " by authority "
notices. It was not possiblo for
two of tho Court favorites to hold
tho oillce of Governess of Kauai, at
tho same time. Ilenco the anange
ment, by which one resigned on a
fat permanent settlement to make
room for the other's installment
into the gubernatorial chair, In
this morning's announcements, the
curtain rises on a fiesh act. Tho
Minister of Interior comes before
tho public as Attorney-General, pro
tempore., in placo of J. L. Kaulukou,
resigned. Tho appointment of Mr.
Kaulukou to tho Attorney-Generalship,
whilo holding tho oflice of
Marshal, was well understood, at
the time, as only a temporary
arrangement, preliminary to a
fiitttic act in the programme. The
incogruity of tho scheme whereby
Mr. Kaulukou, Marshal, held office
under Mr. Kntiliikou, Attorney-General,
was quite apparent; but that
worthy's first, last and only pro
nunciamento as the legal adviser of
the Cabinet, having all but wrecked
the Loan Act, it became necessary
for him to step down and out. And
now, Mr. Aholo's gigantic abilities
arc set forth as nqt having sufficient
scope in the Interior Office, and are
to bo utilized to fill tho blank in the
Attorney-Generalship until it can
be decided on which favorite's
shoulders the mantle of the Attorney-General
or of the Minister of
Interior shnll fall to stay until the
next change of scene. The tempo
rary appointment of Mr. Aholo to
this important office, suggests the
inquiry whether that gentleman's
legal qualifications arc such as to
enable him to risk even one opinion
should occasion require it, or
whether the fate of his predecessor's
first attempt in that direction will
not be a warning to him to confine
his attention to the duties of the
Attorney-Generalship solely to the
simple act of drawing' his salary.
When it is considered that the Min
ister of Interior is charged with the
management of public business in
volving expenditures of one-half of
the enormous appiopriations for the
current period, it may seem very im
pertinent, but it is nevertheless true,
that Mr. Aholo is not a large enough
statesman, either mentally or phy
sically, to straddle himself over two
Cabinet chairs. A further sugges
tion presents itself, which is that
the Kaulukou experiment having
demonstrated the necessity of an
Attorney-Gcneial possessing some
brains, the filling of tho office is
probably not so easy a matter as the
stage managers anticipated. The
history of Cabinets for the past five
or siK months seems to have pro
duced a very general impression
that Ministerial appointments arc
governed by a small modicum of
legard for efficiency or for the
public interests. Favoritism and
backdoor influences appear to have
been more effective than character,
ability' and acquaintance with the
country. That there are members
of the legal piofcssion in the king
dom fully competent to take the
Attorney-Generalship, no one doubts
for a moment. Hut that a compe
tent and respectable lawyer would
accept the office, however willing
he might be, whether on patriotic
principles or for the honors and
emoluments of the position, is very
doubtful. While such an officer
would give character to the Min
istry, it would be at the serious lisk
of a sin render of his own personal
integrity and independence.
DUTY OF FIRE POLICE.
The Fire Police organization is an
impoitant and necessary part of a
complete Fire Department. But to
fulfil its mission effectively, its mem
bers must be early at the scene of a
f re, and initiate action promptly at
the start. If crowds of spectators
are allowed at first to encroach upon
the space that should be reserved
for the operations of the firemen, it
will be dilllcult to clear them away
afterwards. The first duty of the
fire police is to prevent the undue
encroachnicnt of the public at the
beginning. These remarks have
been suggested by the assertion that,
at tho fire on the V. G. Hall, tho
police did not interpose their author
ity until the engine companies had
got water on.
WHAT BONANZA MACKAY SAYS.
"As for me, I get too much news
paper notoriety. I do not seek it,
and I do not like the way sonio of
the papeis make free with my affairs
and those of my family. My two
boys are abroad getting icady lor
college. My wife has received much
hospitality, and has tiied to repay it
in kind. And I have gone on quiet
ly attending to business heie iu the
"Western World, which I love, and
where I feci at home. Some of the
things which have been printed
about us are outrageous, but I do
not take the troublo of answering
all the newspaper fictions which I
sec and hear of. It would keep mo
busy writing letters of denial if 1
"I suppose you saw tho state
ment in the Paris JVcws to the
effect that Mrs. Mackay and you
were to be enemies forever because
you would not buy a 8150,000 place
for her in England?" "Yes, and
what arrant nonsense that is! Tho
editor of tho Moniitiff News knows
better than that. 1 am surprised
that he should allow such stuff in
his paper. Thero is no reason on
earth why I should purchase a homo
in England. My business interests,
my pleasure, my habits and my
friendships all calls 1110 to the West
ern World. It is well enough to
travel in Europe, but for steady
living the United Slates arc good
enough for me. X. Y. World.
Tluee icpoils have been Issued by
the different German Governments,
one by the Prussian Ministry, an
other by the Grand Duchy of linden,
the third by the Society of Social
Economy, carried out by local in
quiries in Austria, Ravarin, the
Rhine provinces and Westphalia,
which show the slate of Germany.
"The fear that haunts men's minds
is that middle-sized and large pro
perties will altogether disappear,
and with them the power of culti
vating cereals to advantage, which
can now only be grown, they all
agree, on large farms with ma
chines." "Subdivision is increas
ing to an alarming extent. As the
population multiplies the size of
each portion is diminished. If one
of the children takes the land he is
obliged to borrow to pay the shares
of the others, whose portions ro
main as burdens ; he then only vege
tates, the next generation at fur
thest sells, or 'vendre e'est morccler.'
'La sjsteme den deux eufants' is
coming more and more into practice.
Bismarck, in a speech last year, re
marked that 'when he went to Var
zin (the estate presented to him by
the country), be found about a
dozen peasant proprietors. They
arc reduced to half ; the others have
been obliued to sell to me to avoid
burdens which they c.umot bear.
Protection," he adds, "is the true
remedy for this. Let the corn
duties bo laised." In Prussia S'2
percent of the peasants are exempt
from direct taxation by reason of
poverty ; 7,000,000 heads of fami
lies are earning less than 25 in the
year, 0s 7d per week, according to
Dr. Gcffachen. The amount of
mortgages created by the system of
equal distribution of piopcrty is
described as excessive alike in Ger
many, France, Italy and Norway.

AN EARTHQUAKE HOUSE.
Cincinnati has an earthquake
house. It stand on the cast side of
Pike street, and now shelters David
Sinton, the venerable millionare,
and Charles Taft, his son-in-law,
and their family. Report has it that
the house was built in 1815 by Mar
tin Bauin, who still retained a vivid
lecollection of the eaithquakes of
1811 and 1812, He believed that
theie would be future doelopments
of the same dread and mysterious
subterranean influences, and he
built in that belief. The house is a
1 -story stiueture of great superfi
cial dimensions ; the walls arc of
cubic dimensions sufllcient to sus
tain at least a hundred limes their
present weight, and iron girders and
stout iron braces in every corner
render the building proof against
the lateial movements which were
the most destructive feature of the
earthquake of 1811. This is proof
in it self of the impressive lesson of
that early disturbance. Cincinna

AUTHORSHIP OF THE SPANISH NA
A Berlin newspaper claims that
the Spanish National hymn -was
composed by Frederick II of Prus
sia, and tlint trustworthy Spanish
authors admit his authorship of the
"Marcha Ileal." The story is that
one day, when the Spanish Ambas
sador, was in the palace at Berlin,
the King handed him the march.
The Ambassador, who was a great
admirer of the King, immediately
sent the composition to Madrid,
where it was received with tremen
dous applause, and is still the most
popular melody in Spain. When in
18G9, Marshal Serrano offered a
piizo for the best melody which
could be used as a national hymn,
more than five hundred compositions
were sent to him, but none of those
were found good enoi'gh to displace
the melody of Frederick II.
