The annual death rate in Honolulu
during February last was 23.45 per thou
sand. As it was a short month this rate
id large, although it is somewhat lower
than in February, 1SSG. But the great
fire purified the Chinese quarter, and
therefore this season's mortality should
lower than the previous one. A
2r comparison may be founded upon
lrns furnished for months subse
nt to April. The percentage of sick
i among school children last month
i large, caused probably by inclem
' weather. The total deaths recorded
February at Honolulu were forty
?e. Of these thirty were native Ha
.ians and seven were Chinese.
Vhe Agent of the Board of Health
res that fourteen fatal cases were
attended." Now that a Hawaiian
ird of Health has been constituted,
h power to issue indiscriminate li
se to practice. Hawaiian medicine,
s feature of the old Board of Health
urns should disappear. It will make
y little difference in the long run,
wever, whether the native race die of
jlect or from the malpractice of ig
rant and irresponsible kahunas. They
i passing away so rapidly that if an
nest census betaken in 1800 the re
. it must astonish those who recently
:deavored to gloss over this very sad
d deplorable fact, and to show that in
rad of decay and gradual dissolution
're is a rapid growth and expansion.
The increase of population is from
. v. alien source, imported at a heavy
f ! arge to the taxpayers, and there is no
' luntary immigration whatever except
from China or places where Chinese are
kiniciled, and an embargo has been
j laced upon that. But the Chinese domi-
i'edhere do not regard themselves as
rbjects of the Crown, or "acknowledge
i sway," as was said on the occasion
ferred to; neither do Japanese; and
i 'rtuguese only to a very limited ex
:rnt have become naturalized.
It is best to tell the truth about popu
i' tion as also about the increase of trade
and production. It is a lamentable fact
that the native race is dying off, and
that the industries of the country are
mainly sustained by imported alien
labor. It is also an undoubted fact that
all industrial development has come
from without, and that the progress of the
country, since 1870 especially, has been
owing entirely to the Reciprocity Treaty
with the United States, which country
practically paid a bonus upon Hawaiian
sugar production and led to the invest
ment of a large amount of foreign capital.
It is probable that an attempt will be
made to light the city with electricity at
an early date. It might be well to post
pone action in this, matter for the pres
ent at least. The city can get along
very well as it is for some
time longer. Better apply avail
able funds to the dredging of
the Harbor than to perfect a shore illumi
nation, which would- probably entail a
heavy and unnecessary expenditure for
years to come, should scientific experi
ment produce a cheaper and more suc
cessful method of utilizing the electric
light than anj' now in use. The limit of
invention has not been reached.
"We are a great country," remarks a
New York paper; "there are seven feet
of snow in Vermont and seven inches ot
mud in New York." That is precisely
urease. After every heavy shower of
rain there are seven inches of mud in
Honolulu and seven feet of snow on the
Perhaps nothing could more humor
ously or more truthfully describe the
"retaliatory" legislation against Cana
dian trade in the United States Senate
than the following short editorial from
the- New York "Herald." It is pithy
and to the point. It says :
The "Herald" is always on the side of
mercy, and we hasten therefore to cheer
up the poor British Lion and urge him not
to be too despondent over the "quite too
awfully awful" pull which Senators Frye
and Ingalls gave to his tail Monday. Mr.
Frye's " impassioned " oratory was in
tended for the latitude and longitude of
Maine, his own dear State; and Mr. In
galls spoke for the Republican party,
which has "viewed with alarm" for a
couple of weeks pat the firm attitude of
the Democratic administration on the fish
ery business, as developed by Secretary
Manning's report and by the bills of Mr.
Belmont and Senator Gorman. When Mr.
Ingalls began to "let loose the dogs of
war," it was only as though he had said,
"It will be a cold day when I let the party
of great moral ideas get left by the Demo
crats." Senator Hoar, with a cooler head, or per
haps a nicer sense of propriety than Sena
tor Ingalls, or probably with a keener fear
of making himself ridiculous, thought im
mediate and bloody war unnecessary.
"Let us exclude their fish," he cried out,
with that lively eye to the main chance
which distinguishes the typical New Eng
lander. That is to say, he would make
fish dearer to the whole of our sixty mill
ions of people, and give his own dear New
England fishermen a closer monopoly of
the supply than they now have, and call

In the probate divi sion of the Supreme j
Court yoterday, before Mr. Justice j
McCuIly, an application filed by one
Ah Kui was heard, praying that he be
appointed guardian of a young Chinese
girl named Chung Moy, aged about 15
years. The respondent in the matter
was William White of Hilo, Hawaii,
whose right of custody of the girl wai
asked to be ruled upon by the Court.
At the hearing il transpired that the
minor was born in China ; that when
two or three years old she was bought,
according to a custom in China, by pe
titioner, Ah Kui, from her parents
for tho purpose of marrying her
with one Ah Nee, son of petitioner.
That in February of last year, in Hilo,
Ah Kui, the petitioner, thinking that
the girl was the proper age to be the wife
of his son, performed the marriage cere
mony, a la Chinese, that of feasting, etc.,
w hich act if done in China is considered
by the parties as consummating the con
tract of engagement 'entered into by the
parents of the marrying couple.
The respondent stated in explanation
of his custody of the girl tnat Ah Nee,
the pretended husband, had sued the
minor for deserting him i the Police
Court of Hilo; that he defended her in
said Court and gained for her a release
from Ah Nee, ever since which time
Chung Moy preferred to and has lived
in the family of Mr. White, whose wife
had taken quite a liking to her.
His Honor, after perusing the evidence
taken at the Hilo trial, said that the
pretended marriage is no marriage under
the laws of this Kingdom, and therefore
dismissed the application. Ah Nee,
who was present, renounced all claims
to the girl, and stated that the petitioner
was his father. Upon the nomination
of Chung Moy, the Court appointed said
William White guardian of her person
under $100 bond. His Excellency An
tone Rosa for petitioner, J. M. Poepoe
In the afternoon Ah Kui- filed a peti
tion for a writ of habeas corpus to ob
tain the custody of the minor, Chung
Moy. The application will be heard this
Diplomatic Reception at Washing
ton. At the Japanese Legation, Washing
ton, the Minister, Mr. Kuki, and his
wife, gave a large reception recently.
The Japanese Government owns its Le
gation building at Washington. It was
exquisitely decorated with flowers for
the occasion. Mrs. Kuki received her
guests in a charming toilet of heliotrope
faille, with draperies on the corsage and
skirt of sage green crape embroidered in
gold and colors. A Valenciennes lace
flounced the skirt and finished the high
guimpe corsage. In the line of ladies
assisting her were Mrs. Carter, wife of
the Hawaiian Minister, in lemon-colored
moire and lace; Mrs. Gomez, wife of
the Secretary of the Brazilian Legation,
in white moire and lace ; Miss Kuki, in
white crape and lace; and Mrs. S. M.
Bryan, in white brocade trimmed with
duchesse lace. There were many hand
some toilets worn by the ladies present.
At one of Mrs. Cleveland's fortnightly
receptions at the White House the Chi
nese Minister, w ith six of his secretaries
and his physician, made quite a stir
when they entered. The Minister wore
an amethyst colored coat over pearl
colored skirts and his high black satin
boots. The large diamond usually worn
on the front of his cap was replaced to
day by a large pearl and a large sar
donyx. His secretaries wore gorgeous
in pale blue, pearl, plum and greenish
yellow garments, and one of the secreta
ries was accompanied by his young son
in exquisitely fresh blue robes.
Jtcii reor Found Utility.
In the Police Court yesterday morn
ing Daniel McGregor was brought up on
remand for judgment in the assault case
with a dangerous weapon. His Honor,
after reviewing the evidence, found the
defendant guilty, and sentenced him to
twenty days' imprisonment at hard
labor and to pay a fine of $30 . An ap
peal was noted to the Supreme Court.
Clinging to a Tin.
One of the funniest incidents of any
railroad wreck that I ever saw and there
are always funny things that one remem
bers about a railroad disaster was that of
a man who was on my train when It ran
through a misplaced switch at Riverside
and collided with a freight train standing
on the side track. It was a terrible
smash up. 'Amos McDaniels, the engi
neer, saved his life by jumping from his
engine before it struck the freight train,
but Andy McGlenn, tho fireman, was
caught between the tank and the boiler
head of the engine, where he was held
fast, alive, but with hi3 legs both crushed
and cooked. As soon as the passengers
found that not one of them was hurt they
swarmed out and began helping to get
poor Andy out of his terrible prison. I
noticed one passenger who worked like a
hero, lifting and pulling and straining to
get Andy out, yet all the time using one
hand as if it were crippled. I noticed it
several times, and paid a good deal more
heed to it than you would expect a man to
under such circumstances; but, don't you
know, under the most exciting conditions
a man's mind will hit upon some 3uch lit
tle thing and never let go of it? Well, I
noticed that man never opened his hand
to take hold of whatever he was going to
lift, but put his wrist under it and kept
his thumb and fingers together.
After we had got Andy out and they
had carried him to the depot I stood talk
ing with this passenger, who was as white
as a sheet and so much excited that he
could hardly put words together. !
"Is your hand crippled?" I asked.
-lu, bixvx ne, quite astonished, and
holding it up where I could see it, he be
trayed the fact that all this time he had
been clinging with his thumb and first fin
ger to a pin with which he was just fast
ening his . necktie down when the collision
occurred. And one of the funniest parts
of, the whole performance was the fact

The Shah After JJi Game, Such as
Wild Assesj Tigers and Antelopes.
The shah is a mighty hunter, a good
shot and an enthusiastic sportsman. Big
game is his delight. T.io Lung, like iV
the sportsmen of hi3 country, ures a
smooth bore and a bullet. Of course,
royal hunts are to a certain extent
A strange incident of eastern life, but a
true one, occurred some twelve years age
at one of these royal huntings. As usual,
a couple of regiments accompanied the
shah on his hunting party. The men
acted as beaters. A tiger was wounded,
and wa3 making oil under the king's
eyes. The royal second barrel was dis
charged, but did not kill the wounded
animal. Fearful of losing his quarry, the
king was reloading (muzzle loaders are
still preferred by Persians), when a pri
vate soldier seized tho tiger by the tail
and detained him long enough for the
shah to dispatch the animal. His maj
esty made that soldier a captain on trie
Wild aes the favorite chase of the
old Persians, who shot them from the sad
dle with arrows are hunted with relays
of dogs. The only time to shoot them is
when the young are at the mother's hecL
So swift and timid are they that it i3 im
possible, to get any but a chance shot at
them under any other circumstances. Tha
young asse are ofreu taken with grey
hounds. The mothers are shot from the
saddle; fur a Persian sportsman, though
ho never shoots flying for fear of wasting
his charge is a very good shot from the
saddle, cud will often kill antelope or other
game wLen going at full speed. The
secret of success in shooting from the sad
dle is that t?e marksman's horse should
be going ventre a terre. The flesh of the
young r.ss is food for kings. Antelope,
save when v..'th young at their heel, ara
seldom seciacJ by a single dog, but aro
easily run down by relays of greyhounds
or shot from the saddle by posted horse
men, the antelope being driven toward,
them by greyhounds.
Hawking is a favorite pastime in Persia.
Ever- great personage has his falconer
and his falconry; every little squireen hii
partridge hawks and pair of greyhounds.
A Persian turns out at early dawn and
lies in ambush behind a rock for part ridges
which come to drink in the morning at
some spring. At the right moment he fires
both barrels into them, and kills or wounds
many; six or eight brace is no uncommon
bag for the two shots of the shikari. He
then runs up and cuts their throats to
maho them lawful (though many ar al
ready dead), and walks home, having dene
a good day's work. For six brace of birds
he will get about two shillings.
Water fowl are got in the same un
sportsmanlike manner. The villager,
hidden behind a low wall built for the
purpose, fires into a pack of tin r.i. Quail
which gives splendid sport in the hih
wheat, literally rising in hundreds are
usually netted; a bamboo call being used
to attract tiuni. TuU :--ll imitates ac
