THE ALGEROBA ANDBERMUDA GRASST
The algeroba and i Bermuda grass are
two especial blessingV.o-tfieae Islands.
They flourish together, and the one
seems to assist the other, and botli need
but little in the way of soil or moisture
in order to flourish. They will soon
transform an arid desert plain into
choice meadow and perk.
You" have only to put up a fence, and
these two welcome visitors quickly vol
unteer to enrich your land. They have
made the Kapiolani park, with only a
little handiwork of man to trim and
make smooth. And the bleak brown
plains of Honouliuli and vicinity of a
few years ago provide abundant pasture
for many thousand head of cattle by
simply fencing out the roaming four
footed tramps that will keep a land poor
and dry forever. We should fence in
the animals and not the cultivated land,
for such a course gives richer crops and
fatter stock. Protect the land, and it
rewards you at every step.
With enclosure, the Bermuda grass or
manienie, as named by natives, quickly
forms a solid sod that will pasture
almost unlimited stock. And in this sod
the algeroba tree will flourish better
than anywhere else, and furnish a sub
stantial quota of feed for your animals,
and prpvide at the same time the best
firewood in the land. And this rank
and beneficent growth does not need
bountiful seasons of rain, for when a
drouth has parched every other plant or
grass a dead brown the algeroba and the
Bermuda grass are radiantly green, and
as for soil they can get along without
any, as our town readers may observe
the tree and the grass climbing up the
rocky slopes of the Punchbowl hill,
which they are clothing with a park-like
beauty, and they make the old brown
land-mark an acclivity of umbrageous
beauty to the eye of the stranger as he
enters our harbor of Honolulu.
West Maui, June 18th.
Makawao generally, also Wailuku, Wai
hee and Waikapu, have had some fine
storm during the past few days, though
not to an extent sufficient to increase
their irrigation supply.
Waikapu cane looks well, but they would
like more water for their field. This plan
tation is almost through grinding, and
will harvest nearly 1,000 tons.
Wailuku finished a while ago, with 1,800
tons. This plantation seems to be thor
oughly well managed, and I hear, notwith
standing the very low price of sugar, netted
a very good return to the stockholders.
The races at Kahului last week were
very well attended, some 1,500 people
being present. Everything was very or
derly, and the day's sports terminated
about 4 p. m. It is said that a large gath
ering will take place again on the Fourth
of July, when some of your city horses
will compete. The course at Kahului is
a good one, and in a few months from now,
when the track has settled and the raami
ania has grown over it, .Till be excellent, as
good probably as your own at Kapiolani
Quite a number of the Masonic Order ar

From Boston Exchanges, Mayf14th.l
Another busy day was passed by the
Royal party yesterday. In the forenoon
an informal reception was given in the
Mayor's office, at which the heads of the
departments and the clerks in the City
Hall were presented to Her Majesty, after
which the Royal party witnessed the an
nual parade of the High and Latin School
SAILING DOWN THE HARBOR.
Shortly after 2 p. m. the Royal party
were driven to Eastern Avenue wharf,
where the city steamer, J. Putnam Brad
lee, was in waiting to convey them down
the harbor. There were in the party the
Queen, the Princess, Colonel Boyd, Com
modore Beckley and wife, Consul Bond,
Mr. J. W. McGuire, keeper of Her Majes
ty's grounds; Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Pitman.
Mr. and Mrs. G. P. Gihnan, Mrs. J. E.
Giliuan, Mayor O'Bi ien.the Misses O'Brien,
Master O'Brien, the Hon. P Maguire, Mr.
and Mrs. N. H. Taylor, William Flanagan,
John F. Dever, wife and child, Mrs, J. C.
Littlefield, James F. Ililliard, J. B.Mar
tin, chairman, and Messrs. Mullane, Ban
kin, Callahan, Risteen , Parker and Far
ren, directors ot public institutions, mem
bers of the Board of Aldermen and Com
mon Council and ladies. The party was
under the charge of Chairman Donovan,
and to him all were greatly indebted for
the successful manner in which the excur
sion was carried out. As the party boarded
the steamer thejr were greeted with beauti
ful music by Baldwin's Orchestra. After a
short trip up the river, so that the Royal
guests mignt view the navy yard, the
steamer was headed for Deer Island, which
was reached about 4 o'clock. Upon land
ing, the party was taken in charge by
Superintendent Whiton, who conducted
them through the buildings, finally going
into the chapel, where exercises by the
young boys were held under the super
vision of the Rev. Mr. Dadmura .instructor
of the institution. After a song by the
school the Mayor was introduced and
spoke as follows :
"My Dear Children I am always de
lighted when 1 visit this institute and wit
ness your excellent performance. I am
even more gratified to-day than usual, be
cause I have learned from the President of
the Board of Directors of Public Institu
tions that your conduct lately has been ex
cellent. I assure you that now, while you
are surrounded by nearly every member of
the city government, there is no news that
is more gratifying to them than that.
Boston takes great interest in your wel
fare, and the members of the city govern
ment feel that when they have dis
tinguished . visitors among them, their
visit wyi not be complete unless they come
down and see j'ou. You all know the
Sandwich Islands, and you probably know
that Boston was the first city that sent
missionaries to those islands; that the
trade of the city of Boston with the Sand
wich Islands has been larger and more in
timate than that of any other city in the
country, and the Queen of those islands
is present here to-day to see you and hear
you sing your songs ; and I have no doubt
that she will carry to her distant home
fond recollections of this event. I now
have the pleasure of introducing to you
the Queen of the Hawaiian Islands."
After the applause which greeted the
Queen had somewhat subsided, she made
a brief address, which was interpreted by
Col. Boyd, for the benefit of the scholars,
as follows :
"I am gratified to-day to have the op
portunity of paying a visit to this institu
tion. We have institutions of this kind on
the Islands, but they are not brought up
to the standard of this institution. 1 hope
upon returning to my island liome to con
vey to Governor laukea such information
about this one as will give him an idea
from which to form an institution of this
kind. I heartily thank His Honor the
Mayor and also the members of the city-
government for affording me this pleasure,
and I give my love to all."
After music and recitations the guests
were invited into one of the large rooms,
where a bountiful collation had been pre
pared. One feature of the afternoon was a
base ball game between members of the
city government and the regular institu
tion nine, in which the city officials were
victors by a score of 6 to 5.
About G o'clock the steamer started for
Fort Warren. Here the guests of the city
were received in due form by Capt. Storv
and other officers in charge of the fort. A
Presidential salute was fired as the Royal
party landed, and a half hour was passed
inspecting the fort. Another salute was
fired as the visitors embarked on the
steamer for Boston, and the city .was
reached at 7:40. Baldwin's Orchestra
added to the pleasure of the occasion by
playing numerous selections during the
sail to and from the island.
THE KOYAL PARTY
Consisted of twenty persons, and com
prised Queen Kapiolani, Princess Liliuo-
kalani, Cel. Boyd, Mr. and Mrs. Beckley,
Consul Bond, Alderman Donovan, Coun
cilman Wliall, Mr. and Mrs. G. D. Gilman,
Mrs. J. E. Gilman, Mr. and Mrs. J. W.
Pitman, Mr. J. W. McGuire, of Honolulu,
and others of Her Majesty's suite.
VISITING A BLIND INSTITUTION.
Last evening the Royal party attended
the concert in aid of the Kindergarten of
the Blind, given by the Orpheus Musical
Society at Berkeley Hall. They were es
corted up stairs and to their places in the
gallery, the entire front row of seats hav
ing been reserved for their use. The per
formance hadvbeen about half concluded
at the entrance of the distinguished guests.
They listened with evident pleasure to the
singing of Miss Gertrude Edmands and by
the Orpheus Musical Society and the other
numbers rendered during the half hour or
more which they remained. The entertain
ment wi's of an exceptionally high order,
the following ariists appearing: Mrs.
Jenny P. Walker, soprano; Miss Gertrude
Edmands, alto; Sullivan A. Sargent, bass;
Albert Van Kaalte, violinist; George W.
i Sumner, pianist, and Leon Keach, accom
panist. Carl Pflueger acted as musical
NEW ENGLAND CONSERVATORY.
Upon leaving the Berkeley Hall about
9:15 the Queen and party were driven to
the New England Conservatory of Music.
Franklin Square, where the Queen was re
ceived in a fitting manner by the inmates
ot that institution, one of the features
being a guard of twenty-four young ladies
prettily dressed in white, and led by
Georgie Truman, a little California girl,
who presented Her Majesty with a beati
ful floral offering, and saluted the Royal
guest in the language of her country.
A VISIT TO CHAUNCY HALL.
The fact that Queen Kapiolani was to
visit Chauncy Hall School yesterday served
to attract quite a crowd in front of the
school house, which awaited expectantly
the arrival of Her Majesty. Inside the
school all was in preparation for the re
ception of the Royal party. Over the
platform in the large assembly rooms the
Hawaiian and American flags were hung,
while on the platform itself were placed a
large number of tropical plants. On the
blackboard at the right of the platform
were written the words, "Aloha nui o ka
Moi Wahine." As the hour of 12, at which
time the Royal party was expected, passed
away, there were some doubts expressed as
to the probability of a visit from the
Queen and h-er suite. At about 12:15
o'clock, however, a telephone message was
received from the Parker House stating
that the party were on the Way to. the
school, and shortly afterward the visitors
arrived. On stepping from the carriages
the party, which consisted of the Queen,
Princess Liliuokalani, Gen. Dominis, Mr.
and Mrs. Beckley and Col. Boyd, was met
by Mr. J. O. Carter, one of the pupils of
the school, and formerly of Hawaii, who
introduced the principal, Mr. Ladd. After
being shown over the building anid given
an opportunity to inspect all the depart
ments, the visitors were escorted to the
assembly room. After the party had
taken seats on the platform the Queen was
presented with a bouquet of red roses by
Miss Maud Stowell, and Adjt. Sawyer at
the same time handed the Princess a bou
quet of white roses. The exercises pro
vided for the entertainment of the visit
ors were simple yet interesting, and con
sisted of singing by the school, a declama
tion, "The Chariot Race from 'Ben Hur,' "
by Percy Parsons, reading of a composi
tion by Arthur Sinclair Kneudson, one of
the five pupils at the school from the Ha
waiian Islands, and finally marching by
the girls of the schools.
At the conclusion of the exercises the
Queen and party, escorted by a guard of
honor, preceeded in carriages to the drill
shed, when the battalion, under command
of Major Alanson Daniels, executed a
drill. At ?the conclusion of the drill the
officers of the battalion, at the request of
Queen Kapiolani, were presented to the
members of the Royal party.
In the afternoon the party paid visits to
friends of Gen. Dominis.
Queen Kapiolani's visit to Boston has
been notable for the practical exhibition it
afforded to our citizens of the success of
the nineteenth century idea of civilizing in
stead of slaying barbarians. It has been
an object lesson of real value. The impres
sion the Queen made was uniformly favor
able, and it cannot be but she will carry to
her island home, when she returns thither,
a more vivid consciousness than she had
before entertained of the blessings derived
from a state of society based, nominally at
least, on self-restraint and the ascendancy
of moral principle. In her own person she
represented the great progress the Sand
wich Islands have made within a compara
tively tew years in the life of a people.
Her visit here was one of satisfaction to
many who are deeply interested in the
work of completely civilizing and Chris
tianizing not only the Sandwich Islands
but all wild and darkened peoples, begin
ning again now at home with our own
Indians. Boston Transcript, May 13th.
Beside our desire to show our respect to
one who has honored us by accepting an
invitation to visit Boston, it is in a diplo
matic sense desirable that the Queen of the
Hawaiian Islands should form a favorable
opinion of our institutions and of our peo
ple; that is to say, that she should go away
from the United States impressed with the
idea that the closer the connection her
country could form with this, the
better it would be for her people. Our
foreign policy does not permit us to forci
bly extend our influence abroad. We can
not, without violation to our principles,
seize upon outlying territory, overthrow
nafcive rulers, and proclaim ourselves mas
ters. But we can and should cultivate the
friendship of the governments of those
countries with which we have large trade
interests. This is the case with the Ha
waiian group of islands. We now have a
large share of their trade, and should keep
and extend it. Beside this, in times of In
ternational complications we could not
afford to have these islands ruled over by a
sovereign who was hostile to our interests,
for they have a strategical importance that
makes it necessary that they should be in
the hands of those who have a kindly in
terest in our welfare. Boston Herald,
There was a dash of warm barbaric col
oring that took the exlge off the east wind
yesterday wherever Her Hawaiian Maj
esty went. At her approach it was like
the sun breaking through the clouds, or a
bit of the Fourth of July arriving out of
season. I caught a glimpse of her as she
stepped out of her carriage on 'Milk street
yesterday forenoon, not far from the
"Post" building, and it was a brief vision
of the tropics. There was a flash of Ma
zarin blue, or brilliant orange and ot glow
ing copper that made up a combination of
color whose effect was simply marvelous.
It brought with it suggestions of orange
groves and coffee plantations and coral
reefs, with macaws and humming birds,
and seemed actually to impart a warmth
to the atmosphere. I am inclined to' the
belief that if those of the Queen's sex here
in Boston who are ' prone to grumbling at
the gray skies and east winds - of our
springtime were to adopt Something
of the Hawaiian coloring in dress, as
displayed by Her Majesty, 't would be
found to go far towards mitigating the as
perity of the season. No oive could look at
Queen Kapiolani yesterday and shiver.
And as far as I had opportunity to ob
serve, she was looked at a great deal.
Moreover, sheendured it in the happiest
fashion, with an evident pleasure which in
no way detracted from queenly dignity.
Her carriage was escorted by a small but
compact crowd as it passed through the
down-town streets, and at each pause that
it made, while within my sight, it was
quickly surrounded by a curious gathering.
What pleased me the most was the appar
ent ease and the accustomed manner of
the object of this popular attention. She
seemed to like it, and not to be put out by
it in the least ; a'nd in this there was a
preferable difference as contrasted with
other Royal manners which have been ob
served here. As I passed up town last
evening, I noticed the sidewalk on each
side of the entrance of the theater which
she was to attend packed close from wall
to curbstone and out into the street with
a throng waiting to catch sight of her. The
Queen's reception has a greater element of
appreciative popularity in it than that
which has been extended to potentates of
greater pretensions on visits here in Bos
ton. Boston Post, May 10th.
Arrival ol the Cerastes.
The German iron bark Cerastes, of
Elsfelth, under command of Captain
John Brumund, arrived in port June
20th, 1G2 days from Liverpool. Chief

days from 50 deg. S. to 50 deg. S. Ex
perienced very severe weather, accom
panied by "several gales, all these days,
the sea breaking over the decks and
damaging the forward houses. The
severest weather was er.couxtered in
latitude 51 deg. S., ami longitude
78 deg. W., the sea washing all over the
decks, and damaged the forward riggigns,
bulwarks, the iron railing, stove in the
boats, the iron stanchions and the
figure-head, but the weather moderated
a few days after. Thence had light
winds and calms. Took the N.E. trades in

D. V. Stege & Co., of Eisfelth, Ger
many, in 1S84. She will be docked at
Brewer's wharf this morning to dis
Accideut at WalKikl.
An accident involving a severe fright
and an uncomfortable immersion in sea
water to a crowd of people occurred
shortly after 5 o'clock last evening at
Waikiki. As the steamer Ewa arrived
at the landing to take a complement ot
passengers home from the sports, the
somewhat fragile structure, ordinarily
used for bathing purposes, gave way in
the middle under the unusual burden
imposed upon it. As the mass of strug
gling humanity went down into water
between four and five feet deep, frantic
shrieks rent the air, there being a num
ber of women and children among the
crowd. All, however, were safely res
cued and were accommodated with a
change of clothing at the neighboring
houses. It is pleasing to note some
prominent examples of presence of mind
and a readiness to assist the helpless,
particularly among the native Ha
waiians. A Portuguese Boy Run Over.
Yesterday morning a young Portu
guese boy was walking along Alakea
street with a playfellow when he was
struck by an express carelessly driven
by a young native, and knocked down
and one of his legs broken. He was
picked up and taken home, preferring to
go there to the hospital. The express
driver did not stop to inquire whether
the boy was hurt, but drove right along
at a furious rate. The boy saj-s he can
