report of the Oahu Insane Asylum for

As per last report there were in the

Sixty-four patients G4
Number of patients out on furlough at

Increase during quarter 7
One serious case of assault by one
patient upon another occurred during
quarter, which seemed likely to prove
fatal. I am happy to be able to report,
however, that the injured patient has
made a good recovery. This was the
first case of serious assault since I have
had any connection with the asylum.
As the patients are allowed so much
more freedom than formerly, I think the
record, in this respect, is very satisfactory.
I have nothing of interest to add
to the present report. I have the honor
to be, very respectfully, your obedient
servant, S. G. Tucker, M. D.,
Supt. Oahu Insane Asylum.

News .Froni the Volcano.
Volcano House, Kilauea, Hawaii,
January 2, 1890.
Mr. Editor: A ring-shaped depression
in the floor of Kilauea, with a cone
fifty or ninety feet high in the center of
the ring, and a lake of liquid fire in the
ring-shaped depression on the west side
of the cone, are in general what the
Volcano proper has been for the last six
months or so.
The only change which has transpired
within this period, is the formation
(which took place early in Nov. 1S89) of
a crack in the floor of Kilauea, running
about northwest and southwest. The
crack extends across the entire circular
floor of the crater, cutting a small segment-shaped
fragment off from the main
floor on the north side. This fissure is
perhaps a mile long, from one to five feet
wide, and say fifty feet deep. Fresh
lava has pushed up from the bottom of
this rent. The surface of the ring-shaped
depression bordering the lake of fire,
sank somewhat, at the time of the formation
of the crack, or as consequent
upon it, and as is presumed, the central
cone and even the lake itself, sank
somewhat on the same occasion. Molten
lava deep down under the floor of
Kilauea found vent through the crack
formed in November, and so the central
lava reservoir, drawn off a little, the
cone and cooled lava of Halemaumau
floating in the surface of it, were allowed
to drop down to a slightly lower level.

120 half-pound tins of opium. The
owner is not known.

l'atsses Quietly Away to His tons Rest'
at"III Residence, King Street.
We are pained to announce the death
of the Honorable Edward Preston, Second
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court,
which took place on Friday afternoon at
a quarter before 2 o'clock at his residence,
King street. He was presiding
at the present term of the Supreme
Court, sitting there up to Friday of last
week, when he found himself so disabled
by pain from an attack of his old enemy,
gout, that he remained at home on Saturday.
"But this, complicated with other
ailments confined him to his bed till his
departure from this life at the time stated
The late Justice Preston was born in
London, England, February 17, 1831.
At an early age he pursued legal studies.
In 1852 he went to Melbourne, Australia,
during the height of the excitement of
the discovery of gold. He afterwards
went to New Zealand where he engaged
in the practice of law at Christchurch.
In 1870 he came to the islands with his
wife, whom he had married in 1852.
Soon after his arrival he entered the
office of the present Chief Justice of the
Kingdom, and was obliged to wait for his
papers which he had left in New Zealand.
During this time he prepared a
digest of the Criminal Code. After receiving
his papers he was admitted upon
certificate, to the Hawaiian bar. This
was upon April 5, 1871, and for some
years he engaged in legal practice. His
ability as a counsel thoroughly educated
in the English common law, in
pleading and conveyancing, was soon
recognized by the bench and bar. In
1875 he entered the office of the Attorney-General,
Richard H. Stanley, On July
3, 1S78, he succeeded Mr. Hartwell as
Attorney-General of the Kingdom,
holding office until August 14th,
1880, when the Moreno Ministry
went in-. He again took the office of
Attorney-General on May 19, 1882, but
resigned May 14, 1883, stating that he
could not hold the office any longer for
public reasons. On the 7th of July,
1885, he was appointed Second Associate
Justice of the Supreme Court, succeeding
the late Mr. Justice Austin.
This office he has held with the "highest
respect of his associates ot the bar, and
of the public. The deceased was a
member of His Majesty's Privy Council
of State, and also of the Selden Society.
He was a grand officer of the Royal
Order of the Crown of Hawaii, and
grand officer of the Royal Order of
Judge Preston was a man habitually
reticent about himself, and, the
above imperfect sketch is all that we are
able to present.
Mr. Justice McCully was presiding at
the term when the sad news was brought
to him by Interpreter Wilcox at six
minutes before 2 o'clock. His Honor
was so overcome with emotion that it
was some moments before he could
speak. lie finally told the jury and the
counsel of the message received.and said
they would no doubt sympathize with
him in his grief,as he felt the death of his
associate very much. The trial would
have to be suspended. His Honor instructed
Marshal Soper to tender his
services in the conduct of the funeral,
after which the Court was adjourned to
10 o'clock Monday morning. Mr. Justice
Bickerton was hearing a case in
chambers when the news came, and at
once adjourned Court.

The Reform Tarty.
Mr. Editor : A person signing himself
"One who knows," writes to the
Bulletin of the 16th inst. and attempts
to make points against the present administration
by reciting various so-called
misdeeds of the Reform party of 1887
and joining them with certain acts of
the present Cabinet, charges them all as
misdeeds of the Ministry. The record of
this Government dates from July 1, 1887,
and is confined to its Ministerial acts.
"Upon that and that alone is it to be
judged. Anything else is false and calculated
to mislead. Probably not many
know what is meant by that nonsense
about dropped revolvers and still fewer
care. The native cares about the results
obtained by the Government under
the present Constitution, and of that
record the Reform party may well be
proud and can urge it as a sufficient
reason why it deserves the continued
confidence of the country. The Legislature
of 1887 condemned "what it believed
a departure from the strict intent of the
appropriation bill, and since then there
has been no misappropriation nor attempt
at misappropriation of public
funds. The charge or inuendo of that
letter is false. There is no similarity
between the misappropriations of the
old regime and anything done or attempted
to be done by the present. To illustrate
: The appropriation for the opening
and extension of Queen street $5,000
was all used, but not one dollar of it
went toward that object, under the old.
Under the new, for instance, the appropriation
for waterworks at the leper
settlement not proving quite sufficient,
the Minister deemed it proper to supplement
that and complete the work by
using a part of the appropriation for
"general expenses of the leper settlement,"
This was opposed by the Auditor
General. The public will no doubt decide
that whatever may be the strict
letter of the law, there was no violation
or attempted violation of its spirit or intent
by the Minister. But the whole
letter is made up of inuendo and so is
false. Let Mr. "One Who Knows" bring
forward the work accomplished by this
Ministry and leave it for the country to
judge between those who ask for a trial
and they who have been tried.
Another Who Knows.
An x-Attorney-General's Opinion.
Mr. Editor: Rumors have been
afloat lately that Mr. Rosa has been
hinting from time to time to the natives,
that those who had presumed to put
down the late riot would soon be brought
to justice. This circumstance probably
gave additional significance to Mr.
Rosa's assertion at the mass meeting of
the Opposition, that his party would
never rest until they had driven a certain
obnoxious element among the foreigners
out of the country. The question
arose at once who was included in
Mr. Rosa's prescribed list and what constituted
in his opinion an "obnoxious
element," with an occasional query perhaps
as to whether or not the obnoxious
element would drive at Mr. Rosa's bidding.
The following open letter from Mr.
Rosa published in Hawaiian last Saturday
in the National Herald, throws
some light on" these questions. The
letter was written in response to another
addressed to him in the same paper and
explains itself. After making some
comment on Mr. Kane, Mr. Rosa thus
"'As to your request for my legal opinion
concerning the shooting of those
seven persons who were killed on the
30th of last July, and of the four who
were wounded, I can answer without
hesitation, they (those who killed them)
are guilty of the crime of murder and
manslaughter, and their names are all
known. And the public may perhaps
understand why I asked the Ministers
in the case of Loomens and Wilcox if
martial law was proclaimed, and they
answered, no. Within the few days
subsequent to the riot of the 30th of
July it was repeated y the lawyers of
the city, and by others who knew, that
some of those who shot and killed were
very clearly guilty of the crime of murder
as stated above. And I believe this
will not be denied. I am sorry that you,
"true Hawaiian," have publicly asked
for my legal opinion during these days
lest it should be said that this is to excite
prejudice. Perhaps this will suffice,
and don't you ask for my opinion again
on this matter in public. I will tell you
the truth in regard to the good of . he
public if you will come to mv office.
A. Rosa."
Honolulu, Jan. 18, 1890.
The editor of the Herald comments
editorially on Mr. Rosa's letter as follows,
and throws still more light on the
subject in hand :
"Our readers will remember a portion
of the article of 'True Hawaiian,' a correspondent
whose thoughts we published
yesterday relating to those who shot
down Hawaiians on the 30th of July,
1889, without having any authority for so
"We have seen that Kane and Achi
are with the Reform party, and if that
party succeeds it is very certain that the
Cabinet will be continued in office, and
they two, with Kaauhai, will help to
keep them there. In that event we see
that those shooters will not at all be tried
for murder or manslaughter. But in
case the National party are victorious,
the Government will be urged to take up
the case and prosecute them immediately.
Therefore, this is the time for the
nation to deliberate, and when the day
of election comes, pass those fellows
aside, for the wound will not be healed
by them, for the time is very near at
hand when the real rights of all native
Hawaiians will he vindicated upon their
own soil. The National party is the
party that will save us, but those others
are they who will utterly destroy us."
There are two important and unpleasant
conclusions to be drawn from all
this and which stare one in the face
whether or 'no. The first is that the
natives must be wrought up into an
utterly unreasonable 'frame of mind
when a prominent and professedly conservative
leader among them can, with
the popular approval, advance such doctrines,
and the editor of a public newspaper
finds it necessary to promise the
populace, as a reward for voting the
Opposition ticket, that the citizens who
suppressed the riot in question would be
proceeded against for murder!
The second is that there are foreigners
among us who are making use of or
countenancing appeals to race prejudice
tor political purposes with the intention,
no doubt, of allaying these prejudices
when their ends are served. Any
reasonable man knows, however, that
all the bad blood stirred up by these
appeals must run its course, and will,
notwithstanding all attempts to cool it
down by those who stirred it up, find
expression in many ways in the legislation
and administration of the country if
placed in power. If the Opposition resort
to such appeals to get into power
they must keep them up to stay there
as Walter Murray Gibson and this
coufltry.Iearned to their cost.
