Home unee, July 28, 1608.
No steps have been taken as yet to
obtain reliable statistics concerning tbe
Chinese coolies and other bonded laborers
which hare been imported into this king
dom. Some have been introduced, served
ont their contracts and been merged into
the mass of our population, while others
are still at work in our fields and houses.
without our having any data for determin
ing the results for good or ill, either on the
laborers themselves or the nation at large,
consequent upon their immigration.
It has been suggested by a member of
the Board of Immigration that immediate
steps shall be taken to supply informa
tion on this important point, not only
to Ecrre as a guide for our own further
efforts to supply labor, but that the mode
and character of our immigration may be
apparent to the world.
;The results thus far developed can easily
be made apparent, by requiringor soliciting
from the employers, an annual report of
tbe men and women obtained for service
from the Board. By a circular, or form of
report, eiabracinga seriesof interrogations,
returnable on a set day of each yeir,amass
of facts can be gathered which will prove
valuable for future action in the matter of
immigration. Every one interested, both
loathe laborers and in tbe national welfare
will, we believe, be ready to impart any
information on the subject which they
may possess.
Wo have a Chinese population of about
two thousand, many of whom came here
originally., 03 coolies, have settled 'down
after having serve! out their contracts,
and become amalgamated with our popu
lation and pursuits. We cannot point out
a single one who has not bettered bis con
dition by thus being transferred from his
native soil to these Mantis, while very
many.'in our personal knowledge, have at
tained both real estate and cash, making
them comfortably well off here, and posi
tively wealthy, if they chose to return to
their, native homes. These facts, though
known in a general way to residents here,
and easily -found by the most casual per
sonal observation, are not in such an
authenticated and authoritative shape as
they would be if collected by the Board
of -Immigration, and could be nsed to dis
arm the suspicion, to remove the hindran
ces and to correct the false light in which
philanthropists at a distance are in danger
of regarding the plans in vogue here, to
supply the demand for more laborers.
The Board can at least keep a record of
all tbos6 persons brought here through
their agency, and from such record, event
ually be able to show what becomes of the
individual, what his condition was during
residence here, and his value to the nation
during the continuance of his contract,
and after becoming master of bis own
' Not a little cara will be needed at first
to really identify the individual, for it is
well known that the name in the contract
is not always that of the person bound by
its clauses. The individual has answered
to the name in tbe making of tbe contract
at the port of departare.and in the assign
ment here, yet nevertheless, he soon be
comes recognized by his employer and his
fellows by his proper name, a different one
from that assumed by him. Tbe name
being secured, we have a clue by which to
trace him in all bis fuUre residence here.
Let every planter, and every person wbo
Ms-Teceivea oonaea uoorers irom ue
Board be, requested to send in the contract
sameand when it differs, the true name
also of the men aud women in hi3 service.
State who have died during the year, or
been discharged from service, cither through
gift, or by purchase of their time?
If any deaths, the time, sickness, and
whether from chronic or accidental dis
eases? The character of tho laborer, if hardy,
willing, industrious and faithful to his en
gagement to labor, or quarrelsome, idle,
and frequently requiring appeal to the
magistrates to be compelled to his duty?
If discharged either before or at the ex
piration of the contract, where they have
settled, what pursuits they have engaged
in, or if they have gone "from the islands
whether to their own country or other
Whether they have married Hawaiian
women and have children, whether they
have acquired property? and any other cir
cumstances relating to them as naturalized
The women, whether they have hus
bands, are they living with them ? and note
the number and limes of birth of children.
To these statistical facts may be added
any other information by the employer
deemed worthy of record in order to found
comparisons as to tbe value and advantage
one class or race of immigrants, may have
over another, to induce us to seek their
introduction. Suggestions and opinions
founded upon experience with those alieady
Here, win be of great value as bints and
guides to the farther solution of our labor
We do not in the above suggestions ex
haust all the points on which reliable it-
formation is desiiable or will be valuable,
We would like to see the inquiries cover
all the Chinese and other laborers intro
duced here since the'first in 1853.. Up to
the creation of the Board in 18C5, private
parties brought in our laborers, and it is
these who are now mixed with our popula
tion, and whose present condition will best
illustrate whether they have bettered them
selves or not.
The labor question on these islands
must embrace a broader view than the
mere obtaining of bone and muscle with
which to till our fields and push our indus
trial enterprises. Beyond this is the nobler
and more important object of increase of
population, of perpetuation of tbe people,
and the building up'of national life and
national happiness. Tho two objects are
correlative, and may be secured by sound
statesmanship and persevering effort.
We shall gladly publish statements on
this interesting subject which may be sent

To the ITonoralle the J3oard of Health of the
Hawaiian Kingdom:
Gentlemen: 1 beg to make the following
summary report ol my first official tour
around the Island of Oauu.
n the Valley of Waimannlo, visited" seven
famlles; prescribed for seventeen cases of
sickness; examined five reported cases of
leprosy, which proved not to be lepers, aud
found one case of leprosy.
In Kauboopuboo Valley, visited four fami
lies; prescribed for four cases of sickness,
and fouud one leper.
In Koolau District, visited seven families;
prescribed tor fourteen sick persons; exam
ined one reputed leper, who proved to be
entirely free from tbe disease, and found two
leprous women. This district will shortly
receive a more thorough visitation.
The District of Waiaina was found to be
remarkably healthy. Visited three reputed
lepers, who, on examination, proved to be
free from It Met the sick, and reputed
lepers at the bouse of the Luna Makai. Five
of the latter were not found to be lepers.
while two cases proved such. Prescribed
for seven cases of sicknets, and left medicine
for cases of hooping cough. Found the
intended suicide much improved.
At Ewa, examined a reputed leper, wbo
proved free from It. Prescribed for two cases
of hooping-cough. This district, and Waia
nae, will shortly be more thoroughly visited.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

Windward Side or Onlin.
The change from the town to the wind
ward side of tbis Island, in un hour's ride
places tbe traveler In such a contrast of
scenery and atmosphere, to that behind him,
that he may almost believe he has entered a
new country. From the heights of the Pali
1,200 feet be looks down upon a verdant
plain, bounded on tbe one side with rugged
mountains, whose clond-cappcd peaks lift
their summits in fantastical outline; and on
tbe other, the blue ocean, flecked on its
shore-border with long extended lines of
foam, and ragged with a wind-torn surface,
to the very horizon. Chains of smaller hills,
starting out from tbe central cliffs, trend to
the sea, dividing the country into fertile ba
sins, where may be seen, seated in the lap of
Nature, tbe homesteads of tbe Planter, the
Grazier, tbe Farmer, and tbe Hawaiian Sons
of tbe soil. Towards the north, at a distance
of twenty miles, tbe monntain ridge closing
on tbe sea, in a broad-backed, lateral spur,
(Eualoe), and pushing an outpost Into tbe
water, o high, rocky Islet shuts off the land
scape in that direction, while towards the
sooth, "near at hand, the spurs that make for
the sea disclose a broken country, and bide
from view tbe near valley of Kallna, and tbe
more distant monntain and sea-bounded
plain of Walmanalo.
Eonahnanul, tbe highest peak on tbe
Island 4,000 feet rears Its huge bulk, cov
ered with a mantle of dense Tegetation, and
moist with vaporing clouds, which, calling
on tbe swift winds, rush to its summit, and,
in vain essaying to escape from it, hang there
with ragged edges, torn by the same wind
that now Is powerless to carry tbem further,
Konahuanul stands" tbe frowning, grim,
southern tower of the cramped, mountain
pass, and confronts a lesser peak Walolanl
on the opposite side.
A narrow road, wrenched from Its rocky
aide, walled by a towering precipice on the
one side, and looking into a Tearful abyss on .
the other.jields a passage now, in spite of
the forbidding aspect.of tbe grim sentinel
that, until late years, blocked? op' the path.
Men and animals creep along this narrow,
zigzag road, from below but secmlng'Insects
on tbe mountain's brawny breast The pre
cipice has been scaled, and utilized by the
art of man, and his puny road triumphs over
the barrier interposed by Nature.
The valley of Kailua about five miles
broad, and a little more from monntain to
sea, is filled with miniature bills and jutting
ridges, that break its surface into a thousand
Inclines, and except near the sea, leave hardly
enough level ground to'bnild a farm-house,
with its adjuncts of yards and pens. Through
a slight cat on tbe summit of tbe ridge tbe
gap the road descends into the valley only
to climb another bill, and so constantly, up
and down, it winds through favoring ravines,
and across tbe water streams, until it strikes
the opposite ridge, and from tbe brow of
Ancanenul tbe sunny and bright vista of
Walmanalo breaks upon tbe sight, and the
distant and haze-obscured mountains of Mo

now hidden from sight by tbe intervening
promontories, and anon, appearing again on
the sandy shores of a distant bight these
form a picture which embraces a variety not

Tbe artist Weed, whose photographs of
Yoscmltc, and other grand scenery of Call
fornia, made bim a connoisseur, looking npon
the scene from the gap, declared that no
where had be found in one view such com
bination of the sublime and beautiful.
An abandoned plantation its fields of su
gar canefast returning to pasturage land, and
its mill-wheel yet unmoved from the scene
of its former activity," a mentor of the un
profitable past occupies a central position
in the Kailua Valley. Tbe area which has
been' in cane is not large, bnt it Is a fertile
soil and yields well, and in more favorable
times, will repay tbe investment of a small
Tbe valley Is taken up by graziers, whoso
cattle may be seen feeding on tbe bill-sides,
or beside tbe water courses. From its'dalrlcs,
some hundreds of pounds of butter finds its
way to town every month.- Surrounded as
It is with high mountains, tbe passing clouds
arc caught, aud yield abundant rain, so that
the grasses are always green and luxuriant.
Tbe sun looks down into it only in the mid
dle hours of tbe day, and most of the time
overhanging clouds, or flying scud, give the
scenery a sombre, tint, intensifying the gloom
of its deep recesses and shaded ravines.
The bounding ridge on the cast shoots up
into two sharp peaks, called "Tbe Needles;"
the true volcanic peak, unmodified by the
rounding, smoothing touch of tbe elements.
On the clear, sharp outline of the peak, a
single rock is seated in clear relief against
the sky, In size, and to tbe eye, in form, re
sembling an eagle with folded wings, keep
ing lofty watch over the valleys which open
beneath his perch. Towards tbe .sea, -the
valley ends in extensive flats, divided by th
water-course the drain of the mountains
having here nnitcd to produce a miniature
river. On this level, and on the gentler
slopes of the bills that bound it, cattle roam
at will, and, luxuriating in good pastures,
fatten for the market, or reward with im
proved stock the care of the herdsmen. As
fine specimens of Devons, Durbams, Angus,
and other breeds, may be seen there, and
on the plains of Walmanalo, as we might
hope to meet anywhere on cattle farms.
Tbe road winds down tbe slope of Anea-
nenul, to lose Itself on the grassy plains of
Walmanalo. It ends there, for the coal of
travel or trade Is reached. On the eastern
end of Oahn, from where the palls of Ma-
mala (six miles long,) touch the sea, at Ma
kapuu, the mountain chain, in a series of
peaks, abut upon tbe sea with precipices
that leave no space for land travel. At Ma-
kapuu, Is tho lesser pall, (800 feet,) up which
tbe old road climbed to cross the mountain
range. This road is now nearly destroyed
by the rains and disuse, and really Is more
formidable to venture over than tbe road at
the Nunanu Valley Pass. Tbe old road by
tbe seashore can still bo traced, along which
the Inhabitants of Eoolau used, in a long,
round-about way over the Makapuu Pall,
and thence over the rough lava plain, inland
of Koko Head, and along the seashore of the
Kona side, to find their way to Honolulu.
Tbe resident of Koolau now reaches Hono
lulu by the Nunanu Pali road, with twenty-
four miles less travel than hla predecessors
of twenty years ago.
Tbe valuable 'tract of Walmanalo Is a tri
angular plain, six miles long by two and a
half broad, along' its western side, aud is ad
mirably adapted for a grazing farm. By rea
son of it natural boundaries, no fences are
required to couflne the stock, which choose
their own pastures, gather in herds after
their own instincts, and know the will of
their owners only at branding seasons, or
drives for sale. Horses and sheep have their
ranges also, and a survey of tbe land, from
some elevated spot, discloses these animated
herds, giving life and variety to the beauties
of the landscape.
The long extent of precipice, rising to 2,000
feet, and broken in outline with numerous
points and peaks, and seamed on its face
with many a water channel In winter, flash
ing cascades is a perpetual object for ad
miration. It looks grand in thedistancc, but
at its very base, to gaze upward, and appre
ciate tbe vast mass of material plied up, and
mark tbe debrii at tbs foot, co Immense in
fact, so small In, Comparison with its parent
mass, la to get some faint idea of tbe hercu
lean forces of nature, which, by volcanic
action, heaved these mountains up ont of tbe
sea.- Persons from the Kona side, by follow
ing up the valleys, can reach tbe top of these
precipices in certain places, and look down
upon Walmanalo," spread like a panorama
beneath their feet.
One or two living streams find their way
from the short ravines, and afford a constant
and sufficient supply of water for stock, and
for tbe cultivation ofkalo. They empty,
now, in what may 1e called a morass, of ten
or twenty acres in extent, which was formerly
the kaio land of the Inhabitants. Coarse
gross and reedy bulrushes cow' cover the
greater portion, no longer needed for the
cultivation of food. These apparent mo
rasses, which are a noticeable feature In all
Hawaiian scenery, convey to the eyes of
strangers only the Ides of waste and worth
less land' yet to tho Ha'wallan eye, and in
the market estimation, they are more valua
ble than the dry and grassy lands; fortheso
watered tracts are either abandoned kalo
patches, or may be converted into such, for
the growing of that esculent which requires
an overflowed soil. Its 'home, naturally, is
the swamp, and, like the rice, it mast bcgiown
under water. There are thousands of acres
now unused for kalo, which may. In the fu
ture, be devoted to rice, and Tastly Increase
the valuable exports of these Islands. They
are tbe basis of natural wealth, awaiting
utilization, and far more valuable than the
proud montaln peaks which tower so grandly
above tbem. Nature's most useful gifts to
man often are covered with tbe most unat
tractive exterior.
The seacoast of Walmanalo is an unbroken
beach of dazzling white sand, thrown up Into
dunes, and strewed by the strong trade
winds many yards Inland. There is a per
petual struggle of the grass and the thrifty
shoots of the convolvulaca; with the wind
and sea, to cover these dunes with a carpet
of green. In some places they have suc
ceeded to tbe very edge of the beach; In
others, tbey are vanquished yards distant a
few long, advance creepers of the convolvu
lus alone holding the debatable ground.
Upon tbis beach breaks, with sullen roar,
tbe ground-swell of the Pacific, a grand
monotone that ever sends Its note towards
the vault of Heaven a perpetual voice of
Him who rules tbe sea, and rides upon tbe
storm. A narrow band of green, a short
way out, gives place to the dark blue of the
deep sea, the reef-shoaled water, to those
trreatcr depths which thesea-plummct reaches
only in the bands of the skillful and ingenious.
Tbe coast-line probably breaks down with
all the suddenness and pitch that marks the
rise of the mountains on the land. Tbe
rocky, barren Islet of Manana lifts Itself some
hundreds of feet ont of tbe sea, at the cast
em termination of tbe beach, and the two
islets, Moknlna, at the western.
Trees arenot a feature in the landscape of
Walmanalo. The Kukui, Ohia, and the Pan-
danus cluster in tbe ravines at the base of tbe
pall, and climb as far as soil is found to sus
tain tbem, but the plain Is desolate, except
around tbe homesteads which dot the laud.
These arc indicated by the groups of foliage
which have been planted and nursed by at
tentive hands. All the windward Side of
Oabu lacks woodland and forest that can be
made serviceable. In inaccessible spots, in
tbe rifts of the mountains, adding beauty to
tbe scenery, and clothing rugged places in
emerald colors, clusters of trees may be
found which almost attaiu the dignity of
forests; Tbey serve to delight the eye, but
do not add value to the lands. Tbe prevail
ing trees are not tbe hard woods, useful for
fueL There arc thousands of acres of good
cane land on Oabu, that only await tbe day
when coal can be laid down upon tbem at
reasonable cost, to become available as splen
did sugar lands.
Tjie cane grows luxuriantly on the plains
of Walmanalo, and there are hundreds of
acres having soil deep and rich, for tbis, or
othcragricultnral products.
It Is in sucli scenery as Walmanalo that the
summer day the detested of the sweltering
Inhabitant of the town becomes a pleasant
cumpanion. The summer was made for the
country. The dawning light comes stealing
over tho land to renew the beauties of na
ture, reduced by r.Ight to only grand out
lines of mountain and valley. The morning
euu lifts itself ont of the sea, and brings, to
temper Its too fervid heat, tbe freshening
trade winds, that have caught tho salty flavor
of the ocean.
The cloud-shadows chase each other over
tbe grassy plain, until the mid-day sun has
become shut out by tbe Interposing canopy
ot clouds, and night at length comes on, as
he sinks behind tho monntain ridges.

The Victoria Colonist, of June IStb, has the
Oa Thursday morning, the 0th Instant, at
about six o'clock, while proceeding through
Shadwell Passage, Queen Charlotte Sound,
northwest coast of British Columbia, taking
the Inside channel, or that on tbe west of
Centre Island, tbe Suvcanee struck on a rock,
tbe existence of which una not im-viminltr
known. This channel Is represented on the
charts as clear of danger, and the directions
on entering It, in tbe Vancouver Pilot Instruc
tions, distinctly state the passage to be clear
on either side of the Island. The rock on
which the vessel struck Is about 150 jards
from the west side of this Island, and as al
ready stated, is not marked. Unfortunately.
soon after the accident, tbe tide fell rapidly,
and the vessel broke to pieces and may be

perfectly calm at the time. The captain, we
understand, eionoratesall parties from blame.

tbe ill-fated vessel, 60 that in every probabil

which she broke to pieces seems to confirm
mis statement, nut aitnougti no one may
be to blame in tbe matter, we cannot but
state that the wreck of the Sutranet is an ac
cident wbicli we regret in common with the
community. Of course there will be an of
