OUR IMPORTS. Tnrougn me Kinanessoi me vouec tor General of Customs we are able fn af fViof tha Imnnrfi Info this Kingdom for the month of May amount in value to something ovvr $230,000.,it ia not possible to give the exact figarea at present, as some of the goods imported are on what are called "open entries," in which the actual value of the goods is not stated, but which is finally deter mined by comparison with invoices and bills of lading. The above sum is sufficiently accu rate, however, to show that the value of goods imported during May was eomewhat greater than of those re celved in April, during which month the amount footed up a little more than $184,000. Of the goods received in May, $182,150 worth were entered free by treaty ; $9,48S worth were bonded, and the balance, something over $38,000 worth, were duty paying. It will thus be seen that the value of free goods, t. e , those imported from and manufactured in the United States, are about ten times t':e value of tke dutiable goods. This is the natural consequence of the operations of the treaty of reciprecity between the Ha aiian Islands and the United States, and goes far to disprove the statements that have been made in riurd to the one-sidednesa of the treaty. The fact that our imports for the month of May show an increase of 'about $50,000 over those of April, proves us to have been correct in the : statement made early in May, to the effect that stocks of saleable merchandise (at that time) were low, 'and there must soon be considerable Importations to keep available lines up to tbe demand. The demand has been greater since then, and our importers have quickly felt the improved tone of the market, and met it promptly. OUR CLIMATE. While there are but few localities in tbe world that can boast of as fine and uniform a climate as is to be found on these islands, it should be borne in mind that there exists here as much, if not more, danger of people catching colds and being an noyed with feverish attacks as iu countries where the cold of winter and tbe heat of summer is more clearly defined. We can live and move and have our being here without taking much heed of climatic changes, and yet these very changes are as keenly felt as greater oue are by people living elsewhere. It seems to be taken for granted that "eternal summer'' means eternal freedom from the ills that flesh are heir to, and it is not until exposure here to iuaidious drafts, to hardly felt showers of rain, and to the hot sun all in the same day, it may be has brought on a cold, a fever, or a general feeling of ill health, that we realize the fact that living in Honolulu is enervating, and that Nature is bound to have her renewages for all sorts and kinds of imprudence. The temptation to overwork here is strong, because the nights are, as a rule, rather more enjoyable in tem perature than the days. If we do go to bed at a respectable hour, we are apt to sleep where the night breezes feel cool, and in many other ways we expose ourselves here more than we would in a more rigorous clime. TO-DAY'S RACES. The races that are to take place to-day at Kapiolani Park have been arranged on a darn-the-expense scale that astonishes and bewilders those whose ideas of lavish expenditure for pleasure are expressed in the dis bursement of seventy-five cents at a soda-water picnic, and whose dreams of wild excitement are realized by a ride behind a mile-in-six-minutes-and-a-quarter hor?e. . The completeness of the arrangements by the Hawaiian Jockey Club for this year's races is due, in the first place, to the enterprise of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser in giving points to the Committee. In this work we acknowledge that we have been ably assisted by those who have imported and trained horses for the event, to the gentlemen who have formed the Jockey Club, and to the successive Legislatures and the Park Association for voting appropriations for the laying out of the racetrack. Not to be found fault with, after achieving this success, and determined not to be left in the matter of recording the events of to-day, we publish the fol lowing graphic and truthful sketch of the preparations for the races, com mencing with the important event of An Opium Melzure. llenry Bradley, living at the corner of Beretaniaand Keanmaku streets, has ben under police surveillance fr aome time past, as it has been more than suspected that he was smuggling opium into the country, he having been engaged in that business aome years ago, and served a term iu jail for doing so. Having very lately returned from the Coast, and it being understood that he had brought some opium with him, Marshal Soper made a raid on his premises last Tuesday night aDd cap tured about one hundred tins of this drug, which, with the accused, were taken to the station-house. Yesterday morning Brad ley was brought before Justice Bickerton, and at hia own request was remanded until the 15th instant. He was released on $1,000 bail, which was furnished by Mr. Gilbert Waller. Marshal Soper is to be congratu lated on his success in making this import ant seizure. Police Court. BKTOEE POLICE JUSTICE BICKEKTOX. Wednesday, June 10. Kelialia, Kahoolame and Kaimaka were each fined $5 and $1 costs for drunkenness. Ah Sing, found guilty of assault and bat tery, was fined $4 and costs. Henry Bradley, charged with importing opium into the Kingdom, was remanded until the 15th instant. G. H. Green was charged with larceny of a watch. After hearing the evidence of witnesses, defendant was discharged. Young Traveler. The many friends of Master Charlie Feer, rob of the French Commissioner here, will, we are sure, be pleased to hear of his safe arrival in San Francisco on the 22d ultimo. He was to embark on the 3d instant at New York on board the steamer Normandie, bound for Havre, and is, therefore, now probably very near reaching his destination, France, where he will join his three brothers, two of whom are at school near Paris. LOCAL AND GENERAL There was a false alarm of fire laat night at 7:30 o'clock. Judge Bickerton's seance at the Police Court will be postponed until to-morrow. The time for closing e a tries to the Horse Show is extended to 11 o'clock a. m. to morrow. Do not forget to make your applications for money orders at the Post Office before noon of Saturday next. Dinner will be served at the Saratoga House after the races to-day from 5 o'clock until 8 p. m. Boast pig, ducks and chick ens. A gang of prisoners are employed in ex cavating at Srewer's shed, for the purpose of pulling out the eld water-pipes and re placing new ones. The credit sale by order of G. W. Mac farlane A Co. will be continued at Messrs. Lyons & Levey's room to-morrow, com mencing at 10 o'clock a. m. Dr. Sutliff, with his bride, has gone to Wailuku, Maui, where he will have general medical charge of the hospital established there, ia addition to his other duties. By the Iwalani letters have been received stating that Mr. R. R. Rickard, of Honokaa, and his youngest daughter were in a very low state of health. A doctor was sent for at Laup&hoehoe last Monday. A picnic for the children of the Fort-street Sabbath School will be given to-day on the Oahu College grounds. The place selected is delightfully cool and shady, and the little ones ought to enjoy themselves imsusnsely while there. A very neat and complete barber shep has been opened in the building standing at the end of Union alley, by Mr. Cunha, propri etor of the Union Reading Parlors. All the appliances for an easy shave can be found in tbe new establishment. The concert given at the Hawaiian Hotel last evening, by order of His Majesty the King, in honor of Mrs. Cheesebrough, was a brilliant success. A large number of ladies and gentlemen were present, and everything passed off pleasantly. Purser Webster, of the steamer Iwalani, reports that the people of Honokaa are preparing to have a grand time at that place on the Fourth of July. Races in the day time and a ball in the evening. Tbe band at Hilo will be engaged. : The little island of Kahoolame, that for a number of years has not produced anything worthy of meation, is now said to afford as fine grazing as any in the group. By the steamer Iwalani that arrived here yesterday morning there was received some cattle in fine condition, which have been fattened on that island. It used to be a standing joke in the Legislature to refer to "the member from Kahoolame," but if the island becomes again productive, it may yet boast of a Representative in tbe Legislative Assembly. A tayonet charge, which usually is considered as rather severe, is a mere nothing in comparison with the plumber's charge. 'i'l . - i ' - ;. - M ::--"l 1 ! . ' : ! i I t -i it i 111 V i !

The Field was freely offered at $1 for "raws," holders having become alarmed at the telephonic news that the track was stiff. Owing to the expected arrival of the "Marshal Soper" with war news, holders of "puts" were feverish, and the additional news that Charley Dexter bad taken the receipt for making his inimitable (free) clam chowders with him when he left in the Alameda, r.;:oKi: tui; ok'.iiwnv all r In the stables where the li.irses wore ke;t hsl itii.t there wis intense watchfulness, tl e galiuut Major keeping an eale eye -n the youug gentle man who had the care of his steeds. The rumor had got abroad that some of the horses bad been "doctored," and it was quietly hinted that the aged Makapoo had been "scratched." Our reporter spent most of last night in taking notes of the situation. We condense as follows : Waterford Stables Approach to stable guarded by two spring guns. When they went off they riddled the hack in which our reporter was sitting. Stable door protected by self-acting guillotine ; reporter shoved bale of bav under, and entered. Famous mule " Backlash " tied in front of "May D.'s" stall. Mule had boxing glove on each hind foot. Let go at reporter, who, when he had crawled out of the fish pond, near the beach, where he had been hurled, reported " All quiet at Waterford." Kealia Ranch Reporter came back from these stables delighted with all he had seen and heard. He was so much (and we add severely) struck with the good order and discipline enforced there with a club that he is now wearing the Kealia colors purple and yellow around his left eye. Majr Hayley was next interviewed. One month ago that gentleman undertook the onerous task of preparing the aged General Garfield for win ning the Grazier's Plate. This job was by no means a light one. The Maior bad no common horse to deal with: the traditionary lore that has Erathered about the venerableMeed, in thick layers, proves that. Much of his record is of necessity lost iu the mist of ages, but enough remains to prove him entitled to a brief resume of his biography. Born in the same county (and year) as the niartyied President whose name he bears, he was early noted for his speedy performance in getting awav with "grub stakes." He made p. good deal of money for those who sold his owner feed, and eventually when his performance as a "Grazier" had threatened a grass famine on tbe Western Slope he was sent to the Islands. His record here is well known, and the now treeless, arid plains of Hawaii where he has pastured bear mute evidence to hia capabilities as a good "stayer," where feed is plenty. When the Major took charge of him he had like that of a free-lunch-counter fieud, that showed that his spirit and ap petite were still unquenched. The Major's first care was to put his hide in proper condition. This opera tion brought out the horde's really fine points, and helped Captain Brown materially in bis task of filling up the Esplanade dump ground. At first the Major was much anuoyed by the careless mauner iu which the grooms used to leave the stable buckets hanging to Garfield's bin bones, and their habit of sitting on his knee joiuts while dressing down his hocks, but he broke them of these tricks with stable-broom handles before long. After the first week of careful attendance and feeding, the Russian brass howitzer, which had been used to wake up Garfield, was taken back to the barracks, it being found that the horse could then be aroused with a pitch fork in a more economical manner. From this time the oats that were put into him twice a day with a scoop shovel began to tell. Garfield plumped out, and last night be broke loose, took charge of the stables, and used up the other two horses that were there beiore lie was secured. When his jockey went iuto the stable this morning to take charge of the horse, the turquoise-blue hoops on his racing jacket MADE THE HORSE WILD, And advanced his price in the pools from 2 to 17i, 98J per cent off for cash. Colonel Judd had announced at an early date that he iutended to enter Boswell Woodburn for the Queen's Plate, and since that time he has been besieged by representatives of the minor sheets published in Honolulu. He of tbe "Wednesday Bazoo" importuned the gallant Colonel for a sight at his stables, but was sternly refused. The itemizer for the afternoon daily was tald to "go away, little boy," and the offer of the "Saturday Morals" to insert favorable rac notes for coin was rejected with scorn. Our reporter was courteously received when he called, and was lead to the stable where Boswell Woodburn resides. This palatial structure is worthy of the noble animal for which it was built. The Mother-of-pearl gates that close the Parian marble entrance t the rose silk-hung reception mom were swung back by two menials dressed iu a livery of Conuecticut-law blue, tHrned up with Mi-sionary green-and the heavy velvet drapery covering the entrance to the private quarters of Boswell were drawn aside. That splendid animal, loosely attired in a silk-and-wool robe-de-chambre blanket, was reclining upon the dark crimson plush lautiei placed against the silver-paneled side of his sleeping place, lie was picking a few gold plated oats from between his snowy teeth with his steel-shod fore feet when wo f ntcrcl. "Good heavens! " exclaimed the Colonel, "picking his own teeth? What! ho! without there! Let the fourth groom of the third ante-chamber direct the second sponge carrier to tell the first assistant warm mash mixer to come hither!" ..... . When the throng of terri fied attendants had assembled the Colonel gave directions to apply the patent jewelel derrick to Boswell and get him on his feet. Then, with a countenance dark with rage, he grasped the animal's lower lip, and drawing it down, growled out FALLEN OFF A LITTLE, But there was a lurking devil in his eye, and a hanging of his lower lip, "look at his teeth, villain!" Our reporter did not wait to witness the denoumeut of this terrific scene, but hastily retreated. At dawn this morning our reporter was on the track, watching with in terest the final preparations being made for the day's sports. There was a crowd of people there, even at that early hour some engaged in cleaning the track of every pebble and other obstructions ; others were busied in putting up booths, in which the festive soda water and exhilirating ginger ale would be dispensed later in the day. The indefatigable Joe was there rumor has it that he spent the night on the grounds and iu his long linen duster, natty neck-tie and irreproachable gloves, grave tone to the whole landscape. Around the saddling paddock moved silent, knowing-looking stable men and helpers. Our reporter interviewed one whom he met, and obtained the following pointers: " Watch the field, and when you see a horse bolt the track, don't bet on him. Look out for Garfield ; watch Hancock ; keep an eye on the ponies, and hold all the stakes you can. Gimme a quarter bet on the head horse at the finish ; hedge all you can ; be virtuous, and " Just at that moment Billie, who had been taking a spin around the track on his colt "Spider," came in on the homestretch, and, in common with the rest of the crowd, 4 1) gtlrrrtismfnts.
