TUESDAY NOVEMBER 9 1886
Tho Sonrco of tho Mississippi
With reference to the recent discovery of a Lake
Eonice of the Mississippi beyond tho old-established
Lnko ItaEca of Shoolcraft to which Captain
Willard Glazier hns laid claim it 19 maintained
by Mr Knssell Hinnmn in an article in tho
American journal Science of the 13th August last
that Captain Glaziers claim is not valid Mr
Hinman shows by reference to official documents
reproduced in engravings illustrating his paper
that the existence of this small lake on one of the
five creeks that fall into Lake Itasca was known
to Schoolcraft in 1S32 and to Nicollet in 1843
Neither of these explorers gave tho lakelet a name
but the omission was supplied by the Land Office
map of 1870 in which it is named Elk Lake a
name which has priority over Lake Glazier
givon to it by Captain Glazier in 1881
Almost a Robbery
A good joko is related of a young gentleman
who Has tho supervision of an erratic ward As
the shades of night were falling fast a dark
figure was scon to enter the wards house in
Nuuanu Valley Mysterious sounds issued from
the building and theso attracted tho attention of
the neighbors who thught poor was
being foully dealt with and immediately sallied
forth to frustrate the scheme of tho wonld bo
burglar After surrounding tho house and se
curely cutting off all exit one young lad more
courageous than liis fellows ventured to peer in
armed with a pocket full of stones to do battle
with and it possible to capture tho supposed
thief He saw enough to convince him that delay
was dangerous rushing in he seized tho would be
burglar from behind who was in the act of push
ing his ward into bed A slight tusslo onsued
between the young man and the supposed burglar
rcsnlting in eaoli having a square look at each
other It was then discovered that the burglar
was a neighbor Mutual explanations and a
laugh followed after which tho valiant young
men left for their respective abodes No arrests
A Bold Robbery
A bold robber took place about tho 28th or
S9th ultimo at the residence of Mr W Miller Sea
View The stolen property consisted of 115 in
gold 90 in silver and 30 in certificates also
two watches and ouo chain one gold locket and
two pairs ot earrings Tbo articles were missed
by Mre Miller tho following day and the polico
notified Tho robbery was kept quiet with a
view to tracing the thief which was finally accom
plished through tho instrumentality of a jeweler
notifying tho parties interested that a half white
who called himself James Smith had offered to
sell a watch wkich answered the description of
the owner to one of tho watohes Accordingly the
half whito was arrested on Tuesday who turned
out to bo Frank Dais who is known to the police
and who appears to havo a record for crooked
ness Vhen arrested Davis was returning from
Waikiki where he had been having a good timo
on tho money Af tor a preliminary examination
the accused was remanded nntil yesterday the
8th This examination was frustrated however
by the prisoner walking out of his cell on Satur
day morning and clearing tor parts unknown
Kohala Letter
KOHAIA Nov Cth
Ei7oB Gazette A Chinaman was found on
Frid Nov Cth hanging close to tho Govern
msnt udd He would havo been hanging on the
sauiy ilnco yot had not somo haoles formed them
selves as a jury and cut him down Tho shoriff
and judge and nil policemen except ono are in
Waimea enjoying a Supremo Court term The
Government physician was as usual no where to
be found being occupied as a lawyer nnd of course
spending this week in Waimea Dr Bond was
sent for and as thero is no evidence of violence
having been used against tho dead man it is sup
posed that he who was known as a heavy opium
smoker had died from tho results of thepoisonou3
drug or being hung up by his countrymen to the
water tlamo to save them tho trouble and oxpenso
of tho burial
Tho only policeman in tho district insisted on
having tho man hanging until tho jary term in
Waimoa was over but as the man was hanging
closo near the Government road and in front of a
bntcher shop ho was induced to allow tho for
eigners to cut tho body down
The whole matter needs a thorough investiga
tion
Yesterday being Guy Fawkos day was celebrated
in the evening by all tho Englishmen who met at
Kohala Club where a first class figure was burned
together with llrpworks salutes etc
By somo unfortunate misunderstanding the
natives who gathered round the fire got the idea
that tho figure strongly resembled Hawaiians
grand old fraud tho Prime Minister and this idea
seemed to increaso their joy considerably
The present Government is very unpopular in
this district and both Hawaiians and foreigners
aro willing to show their feelings when it comes
from words to actions
Tho new Governess has not turned np yet By
tho new army law I see that she is Major General
exQicioand everybody is anxious to see her in
uniform I hear that her husband is going to bo
made sheriff of Hawaii I trust that their domes
tic happiness will not be marred by tho lady boss
ing tho husband ex officio
Thero is talk of having a match game of Polo
on the Kings birthday I fancy the members of
the Iolo Club here would bo very happy to receive
a challenge from somo of tho Honolulu military
gentlemen IiAixEGno
Tho Episcopal Convention in tho U S
Iho following account of tho recent Convention
held at Chicago is published by request After
descubing tho assembling of tho Convention an
account of service is given as follows
In he absence of extravagant ritual tbo service
was a typical Protestant Episcopal one and the
preacher for tho day Bishop Bedel of Ohio stood
forth as tho very genius ot Protestant Episco
palianism In his cermon on the continuity of
the Church ho struck the keynote of tho Old
Evangelical Partys of which be is such a con
spicuous mcmLei When ho declared that forms
were not of tho substance of the faith but that
they may bo changed nt will tho prayer book
revisionists looked pleased When he referred to
tho inroads of modern infidelity it was felt that
the radical church men were rebuked by implica
tion and when he declared that even the forms of
tho sacraments have been changed he roused tho
alert interst of all the Hich Church men nrescnt
They felt that tho gauntlet had been thrown down
to them Bishop Bedells reference to tbo question
of an organic unity of Christendom was signifi
cant for he is a prominent member of the com
mittee which has charge of that question It is
thought indeed that this committee will present
some scheme of chnrch unity by which Protest
antism may be united
When the Lower Houso met in Central Music
Hall in tho afternoon it presented a striking ap
pearance Never before it was said by many ha3
tho Convention been so conveniently housed
Nearly all tho body of the hall is reserved for the
deruties A special postoffico is open in the hall
and small rooms are provided for the use of the
various committees The deputies wereinjno mood
for any serious business except the organization
of the Honse which was proceeded with after the
roll call It wa3 at once evident that the Rev Dr
Dix of New York was tho leading candidate for
the presidency although it was well known that
his name was used against his earnest protest But
his brilliant ability his skill as an organizer his
great and deserved eminence in the Church as
well as his prominence in tbo High Chnrch party
all marked him oat as the man for the place The
handsome majority of both clerical and lay votes
which he received showed that there was no other
candidate seriously before tho House The an
nouncement of his election was received with
great and general applause and Ms little speech
HONOLULU TUESDAY NOVEMBER 9 1886

on taking the chair disarmed all critics by its
modesty its simplicity and its tono of religious
devotion Tho High Church men are naturally
jubilant over his election The re election of the
Rev O L Hntchins of Medford Mass as secre
tary would havo been by acclamation had not a
member foolishly nominated tho BeY Dr Anstice
who received only about a dozen votes
On motion of tho Rev Dr HontingtoDjOf New
York the appointment of a joint committee to
take into consideration all memorials in regard to
the revision of the prayer book will come up for
discussion to morrow The amendment of tho
Bev Dr Swope to appoint a liturgical commission
of fifteen to tako the whole subject of prayer book
revision into consideration will also coma up to
morrow On Friday the two houses will sit as a
Board of Missions and interesting reports of the
missionary bishops will be made The convention
has decided to get to work at oclock every
morning and if necessary it will sit at night In
this way it is hoped that it will be possible to ad
journ finally in two or at most three weeks
Bishop Swealman of Toronto and Bishop Binney
of Nova Scotia are visiting tho Convention and
are the recipients of much attention Few mem
bers of the Convention will be absent from the
sessions
Onr Condition
WCTD
Editok Gazette The late session of the legis
lature has left us much worse off in regard to the
restraints against vice and the discouragements to
indulgence in it than it found us Tho majority
of that body seem to have forgotten entirely that
it is the business of law makers to make it hard
for the people to do wrong and easy to do fight
After an attempt to mnke liquor even freer than
ever it really probably through ignorance left
the liquor law just about as it has been for the
past four years
But in tbo passago of the opium bill a broad
road to vice and degradation has beon opened and
made easy for many residents of this country It
is not a vice which will at first or at once touch
many white men but it may be feared that if the
nse of opium is encouraged by government license
its use will gradually spread among white men
and even white woman may fall victims to its nse
as somo have alroady done in America But bad
as free opium may become at present
free liauor is worse Tho number of young men
in Honolulu who seem to bo hopeless drunkards is
simply appalling The amount of drunkenness on
our streets especially of a Saturday night is
enough to make oues heart sick In other coun
tries a real and healthy temperance sentiment
seems to bo steadily growing but in little Hawaii
ono would think with everything else good tho
oauso of tempcranco was going back And what
shall wo do Wc really believe in spite of all the
influence against it that the causa of temperance
is stronger and the sentiment more general that a
few years ago Wo could not oxpeot anything so
good as a strong earnest temperance sentiment to
grow without great oppositions to it from some
quarter It would be against all history if it should
So let the friends of temperance arm themselves
with patience and courage and work on as oppor
tunity offers Some will work against opium who
would do nothing against liquor Let such uso
their strongest influence against opium It is cer
tainly becoming in every one man and woman in
theso days when nil the evil influences of appetite
and enperstition seem to be reviving to look to
himself or herself to see where the influenoo of
each may fall Vioixanoe
An Outrngo
To show tho intelligent quality of some of the
country tax collectors recently appointed the
following case is cited Mr Geo H McLean who
resides and does business at Wailuku Maui and
who is also assessed in that district had occasion
to viBit Fukoo Molokai to seo after some business
interests there and when about to depart by the
steamer for this city was pounced on by the tax
collector of Molokai one Koaweolu Kaina and tax
demanded of him otherwise ho could not leave the
Island
Mr McLean explained to him that his residence
was at Wailuku Maui and that there ho would
pay the tax This tho collector refused to allov
him to do and when Mr McLean offered to secure
him by placing 25 in D S coin against loss in
case he McLean was wrong tho collector still
refased and would not allow him to dopart Mc
Lean thereupon paid him under protest the sum
of 5 although the tax collector had mado out a
tax receipt for 8 assuming that be was the owner
of a cart and a dog but these two items ho after
wards erased
On his arrival here Mr McLean interviewed the
Minister of Financo about the matter and that offi
cial very properly and promptly denounced this
modo of collecting taxes He gave Mr McLean a
letter to this boss collector to refund the money
promptly and to confine his duties to the collec
tion of taxes in the future to the residents of his
district
Mr McLean also states that this is not an isola
ted case that there are others one of a China
man who resides and has property in Honolulu
nnd who nt tho present is debarred the privilege of
leaving Molokai until he puts up 5 which John
had sturdily refused to do as he was assessed in
this city Security was also refused in the China
mans caso
Here is a case in which the Government through
an ignorant official becomes liable to suits for
damages not only by Mr McLean but bv the
Chinaman who is now detained on Molokai These
aro only two cases in point how many more are
there which are not roported It would be well for
some of these gentlemen clothed in a little brief
authority to look over their instructions before
proceeding too far
The Anglican Chnrch Chronicle
This magazine was published promptly to timo
on Saturday nnd gives an uncommonly good
number which appropriately closes its fourth
volume The editors have deserved their success
and the A C C may be regarded as aitfture
among tho journals of Honolulu -
Attention is called to the fact that the Diocesan
Synod of tho Anglican Church has not been con
vened in 1886 and that it cannot now be legally
convened This is a serious oversight on the part
of Bishop Willis - Probably he was too much en
gaged in trying to crush Mr Davis to attend to tho
