Honolulu, May 3, per Steamer Ala
meda via San Francisco, May 10. The
election for delegates to the constitu
tional convention was held yesterday
and passed off quietly. No Eoyalist
candidates were in the field, and con
sequently no special interest was taken
in the election. The American Union
party had five candidates and six others
ran independent of the regular ticket.
Three were elected, one of whom, A.
K. Knnuiakea, is a descendent of the
old reigning family, the Kamehamas,
and is the last of his race.
A number of prominent rovalists have
set June 1, as restoration day. It is
stated they expect to be fully armed
by that time and if no help is received
from the United States they intend to
make an attack on the provisional gov
ernment. The government officials
take no stock in the rumor, however.
The sand bags which have surrounded
the executive building ever since last
December, have been removed and the
military force is beiug gradually re
duced. Quiet in Samoa.
Samoa, April 25, per steamer Ala
meda, via San Francisco, May 10. So
fighting among the natives has oc
curred since the last, correspondence.
The cessation in hostilities among the
natives is principally due to the united
efforts of the American, British and
German consuls, who nave shown a
marked capacity for dealing with the
difficulties of the unpleasant situation.
They persuaded both parties of natives
to, return to their homes and though
the feeling of discontent among the na
tives is as strong as ever the proba
bility of hostilities appears to be remote.

The Great Humorist Delights a Mul
The most distinguished arrival in
Phoenix yesterday morning was Mr.
Melville D. Landon whose alias Eli
Perkins, has been a prominent figure
on the lecture platform for a quarter of
century, though the great humorist
hardly looks more than twenty-five
He would be mistaken for nothing
else than a humorist. His solemnity
is unbroken save now and then by
drooping of his left eyelid which seems
to be a sort of concession toward
Mr. Landon is something more than a
humorist if one can be more than a
humorist. Ha ia a vigorous writer, and
speaker on prosaic subjects and is
among the ablest regular contributors
to the Political Economist, rlis views
on a protective tariff are favorable and
pronounced and are presented in
manner as interesting as it is convin
cing. Protection is deftly woven into
his lecture of tonight "Fun and Fact in
China and Japan."
He was faced last night at the opera
house by a large and appreciative
audience in "Philosophy of Wit and
Humor." Mr. Landon is perhaps more
somber than he was ten years ago but
is none the less attractive. The wisdom
in his lecture is almost as funny as the
wit and Doth are intensely funny.
His distinctions between wit, humor
and satire were amusing and interest
ing and his delineation of character
showed an intimate acquaintance with
the motives of men. His local appl:
cations were happy.

is frittered away he said while he was
