' Falling among the great Christian and
universal . holidays, the birthday of
Queen Kapiolani comfcs opportunely for
its celebration: Fifty-two years ago this
day Queen Kapiolani wa born. The
times were then rude and the jxople un
' tutored, but fhe dawn of a new and Bet
ter civilization had broken ujkii this new
life which was destined to rise to honor
and distinction among her race and na
tion. .Since Her Majesty's birth mar
vellous' changes have been worked in
this count rvand the Queen is one of the
best exemplars in her own life and per
Hon of their potency and virtue. The
general public recognition of the birth
day of Her Majesty tliv'j JCapiolani is
V4 f III-" VOT j. ' m v
mats fo-her exalted station and personal i
? Despite lthe- tendency to grumbling,
' -which has become chronic in this com
tnuniiy, we see notliing to indicate any
set-back to the progress of the country.
Its resources are practically undeveloped,
but what ha.s be"en Jone towards utilizing
them has demonstrated the vast latent
capabilities oi the soil. These Islands
are on the highway of commerce be-
tween theTacitic coast of North Amer
ica ami ; the Australian colonies, and
upon the 'completion of the Panama
" canal, which is only a question of time
and money, this port will assuredly be
come the great navaj rendezvous, mer
cantile and national, in the North Pa
. cifie. Nature has marked it out for this
high destiny, and it will be.next to im
possible for any crassitude of administra
tion to deprive it of this leading place as
' An international port, although of course
it may not -be' adequately equipped for
its growing and ultimate requirements.
As a factOrJrtlre future development of
the natural wealth of the Islands, and
even in the forecast of the immediate
future in a business jxnnt of view, this
i not to be overlooked. It is calculated
to'strengthen confidence ; and confidence
in" the future is the very basis of pros
perity. Although much unquestionably de
jend3 upon the continuance of the Reci
procity : Treaty with the United States,
and although the Convention providing
for its renewal has not as yet been ratified
by the Senate, there is no cause to be
"""unduly exercUelbout it. The Admin
istration is stronglv committed in favor
of its -renewal, and as the Treaty was
originally a measure of Republican inter
national policy, there is reason to hoe
that ratification will be effected during
the present session. In such case it is
to be expected that the House of Repre
sentatives will originate and pass the
needed legislation to vitalize it, should
that branch of Congress decide that new
legislation is needed in this case, which
is simply a renewal or extension of an
old Treaty, and imports ho new condi
tions, fhe outlook in this case, there
fore, is not calculated to cause unduu
anxiety. Of course there is always an
element of great uncertainty in matter
political in the United States, and this
element clearly is not wanting in the
present case. Considerations of national
policy, however, may turn the scale de
cidedly in our favor.
The outlook is also good in the matter
of production. The yield of the last
sugar crop is now-coming forward to
market, it having been delayed ieyond
the usual time owing to prudential busi
ness considerations. The return prom
ise to be satisfactory as to quantity and
grade, but we regret that the world's
market does not give promise of any de
cided change for the better in prices.
This is a contingency which it is impos
sible to avoid, however, but so long as we
have the virtual monopoly of the Coast
suar market our plan'.ers are in a much
better position than they would be with
out it and had Jo ahip around the Horn
to seek market.-. Improved machinery,
economy in production ami handling,
and prompt cash sales will do much to
ulfset inert-used surar production in
other places, although it lnut be con
fessed that the bounty system' and other
props to Jerman, French and Dutch
sugar producers bring about an increased
pressure oi competition, the ultimate
effect of which cannot be foreseen.
Nevertheless, tbe outlook for our planters
is at least hopeful.
In the smaller industries nearly every
thing depend? upon the producers them
selves. Our rice, coffee and fruit are
admitted duty free on the Coast, and we
have simply to increase their production
to enlarge the importance of the Islands
and add to their fixed wealth and float
ing capital. Steady industry and
frugal habits would go a long way
towards that consummation, but these
are only measurably found combined in
this country. An attempt lias been
made to create a new and profitable in
dustry in the growth and preparation of
ramie for market. Those interested in
the venture are hopeful ; as are also
those engaged in other new productive
enterprises. What is needed in their
case is co-operation and i;r.crous aid
and encouragement. It is always dis-roui-aging
to attempt to found new in
dustries. The disappointments are
many, but the burden would be light
ened if neigh burly help were extended.
On the whole, therefore, we concljde
that the year '1880 closes with a fair
amount of business done and a satisfac
tory outlook for the coming year.
Much depends upon the people them
selves as to their future. Hearty co
ojferation and mutual suport will go a
long way to ensure a ' prosierous year,
while jealousy and dissension will as
certainly produce an opposite effect.

Thomas U. Thrum vs. the Pacific
Commercial Advertiser and K. J.
Creighton. Application for an injunc
tion to restrain the infringement of copy
right. Messrs. L. A. Thurston and A.
C. Smith appeared for the plaintiff, and
asked that defendant be ordered to state
how many copies of the "Hawaiian Al
manac" for 188G, which was designated
a piratical work, have been sold, and
what number there is on hand, and that
they be restrained by injunction from
publishing, printing, selling or exposing
for sale, or being in any way concerned
in the publishing or distributing of any
copies of the piratical work, and from
publishing, printing or issuing any new
or further edition of the piratical work,
and that they and each of them be de
creed to render an account of the copies
sold by them and to pay over the
profits of such sales to the plaintiff, and
that after full hearing they be ordered
to surrender and deliver up the copies
on hand and the stereotype plates
and standing forms, if any, of
said piratical work, to the plaint
iff or to the olficer of the Court,
to be cancelled and destroyed, and the
plaintiff prays for other and general re
lief. The Court ordered defendants to
show cause on Tuesday next why an in
terlocutory judgment should not be en
tered. The summons requiring defend
ants to answer is made returnable on
Monday, the loth proximo. The appli
cation is understood to be made under
the second section of an Act of the year
1804, "to encourage learning, in this.
Kingdom by securing copies of charts,
maps and books to the authors and pro
prietors of such copies."

Pcrforinaiicp nl the Hawaiian
Opera House Lut .Mlit.
The entertainment last evening '
at the Hawaiian Opera House was one I
of the most successful ever criven in this
city. In fact, we can recall no instance j
where even one of the many professional j
troupes that have visited this city from j
time to time have approached the excel- I
lence of this performance. The stage J
settings were the most elaborate ever j
witness at this theater, that of the !
second and third acts being as true to
nature as mechanical skill would allow.
Mmpson s
corned v of "A
i Scrap of Paper" was the piece given,
and the manner in which the amateurs
who took part in the cast handled their
respective parts elicited the warmest ex
pressions of approval from the large audi
ence, w hich filled the entire lower part
of the house. His Majesty the King and
the young Princes Kawananakoa, Kelii
ahonui and Kalanianaole were present
in the Royal box.
Mr. J. F. Brown, as Prosper Cour
mount, was a pleasant surprise to his
friends, who, though they have wit- j
nessed his efforts on similar occasions, j
unite in saying that last night he eur- I
pav-ed himself. His bit of by-play in
the third act with Suzanne (Mrs. Strong) .
was the neatest piece of acting we have
seen for a long time. In fact, from his ;
entree in the first act to the drop of the j
curtain in the last, he was perfection. i
Mrs. J. D. Strong, who took the part j
of Mile. Suzanne de Ruseville, played i
the character for all it was worth. Not
a oint was missed, and in the second i
act, where the Baron, bursting into :
Prosper Courmant's room with the ex- j
pectation f finding his wife, is thwarted j
by Suzanne, who leads him to relieve j
she alone is there, her acting was j
superb. Again in the third act, where j
she once more comes to the Baroness' j
assistance, she displayed a wonderful j
amount of talent, and fairly took the j
house by storm.
The character of Mathilde, interpreted j
by Miss Rose Makee, was as charming a
performance as one could wish to see.
The character does not give much scope J
tor the display of a perlormer s merits,
but it was handled last night in a man
ner that does great credit to the young
lady, and we can safely say has rarely
leen excelled, even by a professional.
Miss King, as Mile. Zenobie, rendered
the part in a charming manner. Her
lerformance in the first act was all that
could be desired, and the audience teiiti
fied its keen approb:f;mi ' '
, r ' u frequent ap
plause." in the succeeding two acts she
had large scope for her abilities and car
ried the audience with her throughout.
Miss Parke, as Baroness Louise de la
(jlaciere, gave a splendid rendering of
the part. In the first act, where she en
deavors to recover her letter from l'ros
Ier, and in the second, where she goes
into his room in "earch of it and is near
ly discovered by her husband, her acting
was superb, and was well received by
the audience.
. Pauline (Miss Atkinson), although a
minor character, was well sustained, and
the manner in which the young lad'
carried her. part throughout the whole
piece was excellent.
Mr. II. W. Morse, in the character of
Baron de la Glaciere, was, as usual, ad
mirable. In the second act he exhibited
a splendid piece of acting, and it would
not be saying too much to state that the
part could not have been placed in more
capable or better hands. Everything lie
undertakes he does well, and his per
formance last night was no exception to
the rule.
Mr. F. P. Hastings as Brisemouche,
landed proprietor and naturalist, looked
and acted the part naturally. From first
to last he never for one moment forgot
the character he was portraying, and all
his ioints were made with telling effect.
Anatole (Mr. F. Bishop) was adelight
ful little hit, and frequently convulsed
the house with laughter by his droll wit
ticisms. The gentleman did remarka
bly well, and none but words of praise
are heard for the manner in which he
carried his part.
Mr. J. M. Dowsett, as Baptiste, had a
thankless part, but he played it for all it
was worth.
Arrival or a Labor Veel Ke ports

The Fine Exhibit Made at the Fair by
the Fredericksburg Brewing' Co.
One of thtf most novo! and uni.ju? exhibits of tho Mechanics Fair was that of the
Fredericksburg Lai;er Brewing Co. It was in the form of a bower, the roof being formad
of hoi vines, while around the suit's were arranged the various packages of the famous
Fredericksburg bo'er. This company was the pioneer in the minufacture of lager on the
Coast. Aftsr overcoming many obstacles they have succeeded in producing an export
Lager NTot Surpassed
Bv any other made in the United Stales. A proof of this is seen in tie fact that their
goods" are s.dd as far East as Chicago, despite Eastern competition. How can they do
this after.paying freight ovv 3.000 miles of railroad, it may bo asked. In the first place
hops are better and cheaper here than in the East; again, California barley is the best
grown in the Tinted Sfati s; but the chief reason is the superior quality of the brew. Aa
tln-y use only the linest artesian water and tho very best material, aud have all the best
and latest niac' inery, they are able to produce an article that
DEFUCS c;omph:tltion.
Their Export Lager is so perfect that it will keen any number of years in any climate,
and is sold largely iu Mexico, Australia, tho Islands, South America, and in short
throughout the Westtr-i H'nwrliei e. In three' years their output lias quadrupled; last
year it amounted to 3;, 000 barrels, and ihis year will exceed that amount.
Siuce writing the fib ive we learn that the Fredericksburg Brewing Co. was awarded
the first prize, a silveil medal, " for fie best Export Laer," also the tirst prize, another
silver medal, for the 'best hg Lager Beer." foiirn a I of Commerce, San Francisco.
fHIIaving been appointed SOLE AGENTS for tho Hawaiian Islands for the above
celebrated Brewing Comjpany, we are now prepared to till all orders for the trade aud
