Our evening contemporary luw exeiteJ
itself unnecessarily about the Tax Collect
or's notice. It is according to law, and
therefore precisely what should be done.
If it. were an arbitrary att, .the law provid
ing a different mode of collection, the
case would be entirely different ; but
when the Tax. Collector complies with
the law what more is to' be said about it ?
The Government has nothing whatever
to say or do in the matter, yet the
"Bulletin" assumes that it has compelled
the issuance of this notice as an act of
wanton despotism. It says :
If the taxation notice is to be understood
as it reads, it simply means that the tax
payers are to be the obsequious and obedi
ent servants of the lordly coterie composing
the Hawaiian Government. Con
sidering the unlimited prerogatives of the
mighty men at the head of this nation, it
is almost surprising to find them conde
scend to give any warning whatever 'to the
citizens that they did not lie back in their
chairs of state, until after the 15th of De
cember had passed, and then swoop down
with costs, commissions and every possible
exaction. "With Mr. Geo.:H.Lnce, Tax
Collector, we have no personal quarrel.
He is doubtless a faithful public servant,
attending to his duties, according to his in
structions. Our protest is against despot
ism, in this, as in every fashion in which it
presents jtself. , . .
There is a great deal more nonsense of
like quality in the article quoted from,
but the" foregoing will suflice as a sample.
As we have said, the Tax Collector is
proceeding according to law; but we go
further and say that there is no hardship
in the case. The mode of tax 'collection
adopted by this country prevails every
where in the United States, and any man
would be deemed insane who would
characterize it as despotism in the
INQUIRIES FROM ABROAD.
The Hon. A. S. Cleghorn lias received
a letter from a gentleman residing in
London, who visited this country iu 187S
and again in. 1881, making inquiries re
garding the outlook 1 of affairs here.
The letter is dated from the New
United Service Club, S. W., October 3d,
and is as follows :
I am frequently asked here about your j
Islands, for so many oi our well-to-do peo
ple are seeking homes elsewhere, and Lav
ing formed a strong opinion of my own as
to the value of your Inlands, I strongly
urge any friends who have capital, but ar.e
not of ft class to rough it in the Australian
"bush" or on a New Mexican cattle ranch,
to settle iu your Islands, or start on a few
'acres of outside land a fruit farm, oranges,
etc.; and in the meantime I assure them
that they-would get a good interest for
money in the way of loan on mortgage of
property, Government bonds and. other
I am unfortunately unable to give in
formation as to values in your Islands,
nor uwviui lacume juuur...i .i
a. . a. Jr m;.:
OWer 111 vuc jr vii im ;ium v uim,
long leases of such plots of ground as a man
would care to take up to plant fruit trees
upon. Naturally a lease for twenty-one
years would not be an inducement for a
man to plant say oranges, which require
five years to mature.
1 have just come from Dundee and Mo
rayshire, and toy friend3 ask me to write to
your Government to get the latest informa
tion. If you will favor us with good in
formation as to present values, taxation,
coinage, rates of interest, customs dues
and useful information on ajiy points that
may strike you, your will oblige many here.
This letter coines opportunely, at a
time when an attempt is being made lo
cally to promote the colonization of a
large tract of land on this island. It
shows that with proper inducements a
very desirable class of immigrants may
be influenced to settle here, that is, people
with sufficient money to build houses,
improve the land purchased by them
and employ labor. This would be en
riching the country from the start, and
would have a very different influence
upon its industries 4and institutions than
the accession of the same number of con
tract laborers would produce. Every
possible encouragement should be given
to the immigration ot men oi capnai,
with their families and surroundings, j
from Great Britain ami the United
States. It would improvethe tone and
elevate the status of society of these
islands, and tend greatly to strengthen
the .autonomy of the country. The
promoters ,of the Hawaiian Coloniza
tion Land and Trust Company, Limited,
should push " energetically ahead with
their enterprise, which would teem to be
in the direct line of the requirements
outlined in the letter above quoted.
The Hawaiian Fx 111 bit.
The Hawaiian Government Exhibit,
which stands just opposite the Sixth
street entrance, makes an interesting
show of the products and eculiarities of
those distant leople. Ilruught to the
notice of the-civilized world in 177, by
the discovery of the islands by the cele
brated navigator, ('apt. Cook, only two
years subsequent to the advent of these
United States into the family of nations,
and into the notice of theChristian world
by the labors of. the American Presbyte
rian missionaries, who commenced their
work in 1820, these islanders have taken
.their place as an independent nation
among the civilized and Christian na
tions of the world. The Hawaiian are
IK'culiarly interesting to the American
Ieople, as. owing in a great measure to
them their Christian ami commercial ad
vancement from barbarism to their pres
ent condition ; also, from their neigh bor
hood, their islands Uing the nearest land
ofTthe west coast of the republic. Their
trade, nearly all confined to the United
States, is at the present time nearly
$13,000,000, and is increasing yearly.
The exhibit shows specimens of their
sugars, rice ami coffee, for the culture of
which their lands are well adapted. The
sugars are' dark-colored, raw sugars,' ex
Iiorted for sale' to refiners. Stock-farm
ing, the raising of cattle, horses and
sheep, and also culture of tropical fruits,
are largely pursued and contribute to the
list of their exports.
The peculiarities of the Hawaiian are
shown in the specimens of taro flour.
This taro is the staple food of the island
ers the; bread of the country, in fact.
It is a large tuler, grown under water
and when steamed and pounded into H
thick paste, forms a nutritious article f
food. It is easily grown, is very produc
tive, less than an acre leing sufficient to
feed a man through a whole-. year. Like
the Casava, it is poisonous, unless cooked.
This taro, with fish from the sea, was an
ciently the principal food of the natives.
The unsightly and bunchy roots of the
Awa exhibit another peculiarity. This
root is a '-strong narcotlc'stimulant. It is
prepared and used as an intoxicant for
going on a drunken spree, for having a
blow-out. In Siberia the natives get
' high " 6 a toadstool ; : in the ., islands
this awa-root serves a similar "purpose.
It has its value, however, as a medicine
for skin diseases, and has already found
its place in the materia mediea.
In the Kaha is seen a specimen of the
ancient and only cloth of the people pre
vious to their introduc tion to commerce.
It is a paier, rather than cloth, made
from the bark of the Wauke bush. This
bark is macerated in Water, and the pulp
being pounded with serrated wooden
mallets, adheres in thin sheets. Several
of these fastened together form the
papery, stiff led-qui It of old times. Rude
patterns of colors stamped on them
illustrate their attempt in the fine arts.
The' specimens of mats woven from
grasses, rushes, and the leaves of the
palm, or pandanms, do exhibit, how
ever, great dexterity, as well as taste, in
their make-up. They are as soft and
flexible as cloth ; the Nihau mat espec
ially so, as it is braided of a fine and
tough -grass. The wealth of a native
family used to be gauged by its mats,
the forms on which they slept leing
piled with scores of these fine wrought
mats. ' ' - '
In fibres are shown specimens of the
hau, olona, and the ramie, all of which
grow abundantly, on the Islands. The
Iiau is a tough, coarse fibre. From it the
natives make rope, the specimens show
ing it to be as tough and flexible as the
Manila hemp cordage. The olona, a
finer fibre, is used for twines, fish nets,
lashings, etc. As a race of fishermen, a
moiety of whose food was caught in the
sea, these fibres, lefore iron was known
to them, were invaluable for their canoes,
as well as fishing tackle. The ramie is
an introduced plant, and is a fibre which
is destined to make a noise in thJ world.
A native drum, with" a tom-tom held
in the hand and rattled by the dancing
girls, gives an idea of the rude music
formerly furnished for festive occasions.
The articles made bv native women
f Ullornn)ent of tho ierson or JJOr
sonal wear, show ingenuity in the use of
odd material, and dexterity in the
making. The straw hats are noticeable
for beauty of material. One is braided
of the maiden hair fern, another of the
auioho fern, others of the sugar "cane
blossom, of oane leaves, of band too, of
the fan-leaf palm, of corn blossoms; and
there is a hat, with a wreath of flowers,
and a fan, exquisitely done, of the inner
rind of the squash vine. Fans, also, are
shown, of these same materials, as well
as of peacock and other feathers. Brace
lets, necklaces and reticules, made of the
seeds of the kou and the mimosa, in
geniously put together; also of shells, of
kukui, or candle-tree nuts, of bamboo
seeds, and canes of various woods, san-dal-svood,
koa' uilm, coffee and orange.
Some choice rrf times of the native
plants, especially the Maile vine, add
interest to the exhibit.
An interesting Krtion of the exhibit j
are the necklaces made of feathers. Two
of these, made of the creamy yellow
feathers of the Mamo, a rare and now
nearly extinct bird of the island, used
only for royal regalia, are exceedingly
costly as well as beautiful. These neck
laces are worn on the neck or in the hair
cf the. chief women on state or festal
! occasions. Dressing the head with
wreaths of flowers, or loaves, or feathers,
when the bright colors show brilliantly
on the dark ground of their jet black,
glossy hair, is an universal custom w'ith
Then are a large numler of photo
graphic views. These give, without
words, an idea of the scenery, the jeo
ple and the pursuits of the islanders. A
series of photo-portraits give. the meni
lers of the present reigning family,
Kalakuua; another the late Queen
Dowager Emma, her husband, and
brother of the Kamehaineha family.
The public buildings and private resi
dences in Honolulu- give evidences of
j wealth and refinement, of public spirit
and well-ordered affairs, while the pic
tures of scenery exhibit bits of picturesque
and fantastic nature suggestive of a vol
canic formed country where- the rents
and rifts of volcanic force have leen
veiled in the verdant dress of a lux
One of the chief objects of interest in
the exhibit is the vivid and truthful pic
ture of the ever-living fiery crater of
Kilauea, by Jules Ta vernier,, of San
Francisco. The volcanic mountain of
Mauna Loa, with its two craters of Moku-weo-weo
and Kilauea, is a place to lx
seen, not descriled. Here are to le
seen and noted the forces which have
shapen the globe, and, we. come into
visual contact with the one phenom
enon of Nature which defies all explan

The Archbishops of Canterbury and
York have issued an address to the
English electors. They say that the
men chosen in the coming election will
be likely to govern the Empire for a
number of years. The Archbishops con
sider the church question of the highest
importance. The address, though com
pulsory in tone, avoids direct party dis
cussion. It is regarded as a thrust at the
Radicals. Mr. Gladstone has written a
highly important letter on Church dises
tablishment. He taunts the Tories with
thrusting the question forward as a politi
cal dodge. He repeats that the project
belongs to the dim-distant future and
that the public mind is not prepared for
the scheme. In conclusion he says:
"The subject is for others and not for me
to deal with."

probably end by Christinas. In France
the crop starts three weeks late, and
roots so far drawn are small and quality
has decreased owing to rain. Tendency
of the week's cable reports is a decrease

M. Licht, and an expectation that he
will soon revise his estimates to conform

ble gentleman has been in the habit ,
every morning quite early of getting up ;
and opening a door on the second story j
of his house so as to get the fresh morn- j
ing air. This door does not lead on to
any veranda, but to guard against an ;
accident happening to him, a bar was al- j
ways thrown across it. Unfortunately, !
those having charge of this duty neglected j
it on Monday evening. The ex-Governor j
ojened the door as usual yesterday morn
ing sometime lefore daylight, and the
bar being gone he . fell to the ground,
probably a distance of ten feet. He was
found at half past four o'clock by Mahoe,
his son-in-law, who noticed that he was
still breathing. He was carried into the
house, and Dr. Trousseau was at once
sent for. The doctor speedily arrived,
but found he could not do anything to re
lieve him, and a little later on he
breathed his last. The sad death of this
aged and well-known Hawaiian cast quite
a gloom over the city as the news spread.
The steamer James Makee left for Kauai
about eight o'clock yesterday morning to
convey the sad news to his son, His F.x
cellency P. P. Kanoa, the present Gov
ernor of Kauai. It is expected she will
return this morning with the latter on
board, when arrangements will probably
be made for the funeral, which will be a
military one. His Majesty the KJng and
a large number of citizens visited the
house and viewed the remains. The de
ceased was Governor of Kauai for many
years, being appointed during the time
of the Kamehamehas, and resigned in
favor of his son. He was a member of
the Privy Council, and about eighty-two
years of age.

states that that spirit was first dis
tilled from the juice of the sugar eaue in
Barbadoes about the year lo4i) or It) to,
and that the name the planters of the
colony gave to the new liquor was "kill
devil. " At a comparatively early period
it was called "rumbullion, a word which
expressed the idea of a great quarrel or
tumuli. Iu the library of Trinity college.
Dubliu, there is a manuscript contaiuiug
a description of l'.aibadoes about tho year
The writer refers to the new spirit iu
language which sir Wilfrid l.awaoa could
hardly fail to appreciate: "The chief
fuddling they make iu the island is rum
bullion, alias kill divill, and this is made
of suar canes distilled, a hot, hellish,
and terrible liquor. Mr. J avis thinks
that it was about the year H'.GO that "rum
bullion " was clipped of two of its sylla
bles: but the first mention of the abridged
word in any public document in liarba
does appears to have been in an act
passed in l''US to prevent the sale of both
brandy and rum in the tippling houses
near "the most frequented highways or
roads of the island.
The word "rum, " however, occurs in
certain orders of the government and
council of Jamaica as early as 160 1. At
the Uermuda assizes a cask of "rumbull
ion n was confiscated on the ground ' that
it had caused "great disorder and drunk
enness among the governor's negroes;"
but with'suigular inconsistency the otll

the benelit of a wounded S otchman who.
had some c'.aiin upou the public bounty.
