Fnncral Obsequies of Mr. A.
The death of Mr. A. It. Laws of
Hamakuapoko occurred during
Monday night, the 23d inst. The
sad event was not a surprise to his
many friends in Makawao district,
as he had been lying dangerously
ill for more thau a week previous,
and -had been suffering from a fatal
disease during the past six months.

The last sad rites took place at
Paia Foreign Church daring Wednesday
morning, the 25th inst., in
the presence of a goodly number" oE
people wishing to pay the last token
of respect to their deceased friend
and neighbor. The tolling of the
bell announced the approach of the
funeral train from Hamakuapoko,
and soon, very soon, the congrega
tion sang tee hymns andBers. O. H.
and T. L. Gulick said tho final words
of prayer and eulogy.
The" following biographical facts
are taken from the remarks of the
last named gentleman: Mr. A. B.
Laws was born in Philadelphia some
and a half years ago, and
the family of which he was a member
included five brothers and two sisters,
all bat one of whom survive him.
Soon after reaching mature years he
removed to Ohio, and for thirty-nine
years was engaged in business in
Cincinnati. Daring the last five
years he has been a resident of Hawaii

years .he has believed in Christianity,
was an earnest and successful
Sunday School teacher in Cincinnati,
always a close Bible student,

scientific and philosophical investigation
which tended in any way to

and the wonder of it is that things
move on much as usual.
During Saturday, the 21st instant,
and the days since then, Messrs. W.
H. Cornwell and John Bichardson
have been circulating a petition in
WaHaku district, and John Kaluna
and Ber. J. Eamakele have been
doing the same service in Makawao.
This document is of rather an innocent
nature, so they say, simply expressing
disapproval of the existence
and modus operandi of the new Pro
visional Government of Hawaii.

THE WAILUXU JQXSTBELS.
After two months of many rehearsals,

The largo rootn and spacious stago

that of tho Makawao boys in varioty.
Thirteen men took part in tho overture,
twelve of them advertising tho
"Rising Sun" stovo polish complexion
recently patented by Mr.
Cooper of Paia. The proverbial
evening dross predominated with
the exception of the four end men
who indulged their fancy in fantastic
garb. Mr. Soverin of Honolulu was
interlocutor and Messrs. Groves, T.
Lyons, ATcGuire and Hurlihy sat at
the ends of the horse shoe. The list
of events is too lengthy to be mentioned
Tho audience seemed to highly
appreciate the grotesque exhibition
of Messrs, Groves and T. Lyons as

Daring Wednesday, the 25th inst.,
tho sugar train en route from Hamakuapoko
to Paia depot, got away
from the brakes, demolished several
b3gs of sugar, and somewhat injured
a native. It is customary for this
train to bear sugar to Paia of its
own volition (down grade) and to be
palled back by mules.
Apropos of Hamakuapoko it never
did turn out 118 T. of sugar in
twenty-four hours, but 148 cells, by
diffusion, is its record; and as (on
dit) there is an average of '500 lbs. of
sngar to a cell, the result shows just
thirty-seven tons as its large day's

3S75 bags Paia sugar, 490S from

Jl Wife for Sale.
The first recorded sale of a wife
after the accession of George m.
occurred in March, 1766. In this
case a carpenter of Southwark,
named Higginson, went into an
alehouse for his morning draught ;
there he met a fellow carpenter,
and their conversation turned on
wives. The carpenter, whose name
history has not recorded, lamented
that he had no wife, Higginson, on
the other hand, lamented that he
had, and expressed regret that
there was no way except murder
by which he could rid himself of
her. The carpenter assured Higginson
that there was a way the
old English custom had made it
quite lawful for a husband to sell
his own rib. "No one would be
such a fool as to buy mine," sighed
Higginson. "I would do so," the
other promptly replied, "and think
"Done!" shouted the delighted
husband, who clinched the bargain
on the spot All the Year
Electricity is running about 500
street railways in the United
State3 and Canada, a gain of nearly
200 in two yeare, and fully
equal to half of the total street
railway system of America. The
investment in these roads has
passed the $200,000,000 mark, but
gives no sign in falling off to a
lower rate of increase, for it was
only in February, 1891, that the
investment was estimated at $50,-000,000.
These roads are operating
at least 12,000 cars, or two to
every mile of- track. These are
wonderful figures of growth since
1887, when the first American electric
railway statistics could present
only the slim total of thirteen
roads, some of which were in reality
mere experimental stretches of
track with but a couple of cars on
,1 SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
A Little Girl Rolls Down the
Side of Punchbowl.
A most serious accident happened
to a nativo girl about ten or
twelvo years of- ago Monday afternoon.
A company of young nativo
boys and girls and sailors from tho
Japanese training ship Kon-go were
up Punchbowl Monday taking n
view of tho harbor and
tho city. After tho youthful sight
seers had satisfied their curiosity
looking at the two war vessels
lying in the harbor and other commanding
views, they left tho top
and descended slowly by tho trail
overlooking tho Queen's Hospital.
They had not como down far when
a little girl was seen rolling down
the sides of Punchbowl head first.
The girl landed in a hole several
hundred yards below. Tho Jap
aneso sailors who wore near
hurried to pick up the girl and
brought her body to tho foot of the
hill, where a large throng of people
immediately surrounded the
little victim. It was found that
her nose was broken and tho head
was crushed in in several places ;
she was unconscious. Her father
was sent for, and then tho girl was
taken to tho Queen's Hospital. It
is not positively known what
caused tho little girl to roll down.
Some of the little girls who were
present say that she stepped on a
loose stone, but her little brother
thinks she was knocked from behind.
. This is perhaps the second accident
of a similar nature that has
happened on tho slopes of Punchbowl.
Over eighteen years ago a
native boy from the Royal School
was dashed down the slopes of
Punchbowl in a similar manner
and was killed. Some years later
a native soldier was blown down
by one of the old muzzle loaders
formerly used for saluting.
A CURIOUS ISLAND.
A Native of Tasmania Tells of
the Kangaroos and Tin
T. W. Reynolds, a native of Tasmania,
son of the Major of Hobart,
the capital, and builder and owner
of an important coast railroad, is
at the Palace. He has been in
England on business and has just
crossed the Atlantic on the Teutonic.
Mr. Reynolds tells an interesting
story of the growth of the remote
island on which he was born, and
which he had never left till during
"The kangaroos and other curious
game which were for so many
years thick in Tasmania," ho said,
"are getting pretty well thinned
out now. So many have been hunting
them that they could not last.
Our island is now mostly devoted
to mining, though a good deal of
grain and fruit is raised. We sent
about two hundred thousand tons
of soft fruits, that is, apples, pears,
prunes and things of that kind, to
England last year. The minerals
are various, and are found in directly
opposite directions, so that
we get tin in one part, gold in another,
and silver yet in another. The
tin mines are very good, and are a
source of large income. They were
never more prosperous than now.
They are even better than the
world supposes them to be. None
of the mountains are over 5000 feet
"The island now has a population
of a little over 150,000, and
Hobart has a population of 36,000.
It is a solid, substantial town, a,nd
is growing steadily. When the
early gold excitement occurred in
California a good many pioneers of
Tasmania came here, and many of
them are here yet. Among them
was an uncle of mine, now living
on the Sacramento, and I will go
up to Eee him in a fen days."
Mr. Beynolds will remain here
well on to a month. He is much
f interested in what he sees here.

What Constitutes a. Gentleman.
A Kentuckian recently won a
-prize offered for the best definition
of a gentleman, and his definition
was: "A man of refinement and
culture, whose aims are noble,
whose truth is constant, and not
only constant in its kind, but elevated
in its degree ; whose want of
meanness makes him simple, and
who can look the whole world in
the face with a true, manly sympathy
for the great and small."
Phil Armour, according to the
Chicago papers, has a hundred
dollars placed on his desk every
morning, which he distributes in
charity in the course of the day.
His bill for luncheon often runs
up as high as forty cents, while
some of his clerks spend nearly a
dollar. But then they don't have
to drop a hundred dollars a day in

Newport, and there given a trial
over a mile courso to standardize

whether sho can come up to the
speed called for in tho contract.
Her builders are confident that
they can exceed tho requirement
of twelve knots an hour by at least
two knots. And if they succeed in
doing this a hnndsomo borus will
be their reward. After her acceptance
by tho government sho will
be sent to Annapolis in time for
