Embezzlement seems to be on the in crease in this community. Business men should be watchful. Next Monday all the Government of fices will be closed in order to allow the the employees to vote the Independent ticket. "If J. F. Smith, if you please, had as much brains as W. C. Achi, whom he ridicules," said a g.?n!leman last even ing, "he would n't ha euch a laughing stock to the cornnvinifv." The Minister of Int erior gives notice that no elect ionaerln. will be allowed on Monday wit liin 013 hundred feet of the polls, an 1 he reqieU that Inspect ors of Election enforce the order. Captain Feiilbeiir is going round with a list containing the naine3 of a number of delinquent licensees. One business man on Fort street is two years behind. It is about time he fell in with reform. The mass meeting of native Ilawaiians in favor of the Independent ticket at the Kaumakapili Church last evening was a large one. The aisles and windows of the church were even crowded, and many persons were unable to obtain ad mission. INDEPENDENT TICKET. FOR NOBLES ISLAND OF OAHU. John A. Cummins. S. M. Kaaukai. A. K.

MASS MEETING. A Tremendous feathering: of Ilawa iians at Kaumakapili Cnurcli. The Independent candidates for Nobles and Representatives held another large and enthusiastic meeting last evening in the basement of Kaumakapili Church. It was attended by nearlj' one thousand Hawaiian voters. The aisles, windows, in fact, every available place was crammed with people. At 7:15 o'clock Mr. J. M. Poepoe called the meeting to order and nomi nated the Rev. D. Keaweamahi as chairman and chaplain, which was ap proved. Enoka Johnson was appointed Secretary. The Chairman thanked the audience for the honor conferred upon him, and - after offering prayer called upon J.Kanui, ..one of the candidates for Nobles, who spoke as follows: Fellow citizens I thank you all for being obedient to our call to be present. This is an awful crisis. Those who framed the new Con stitution did not ask a single Hawaiian to assist in the work,and we are left out in the cold : hence our grievances and dis approval of the new Constitution. How was the new Constitution framed and passed? It was entirely against the old Constitution. As the whites were the ones who framed the new Constitution, therefore it is not proper that the whites fehould amend and improve it in order to be meet in our eyes. No ; we are the ones. We won't be one-sided and sel fifth in our attempt to amend the flaws of the new Constitution; but will do it with one great aim, th.it i, looking on the sufferances of aU. Tiny say "Re form." Yes; t!i 3 v.;ry word means drive Hawaiian! from th3siiof their birth in order th it th3 v liteV prophecy should be fulfilled, saying: Fifty years hence there will be no Ilawaiians in Hawaii. I admit that we are not rich, but the Good Book had justly said that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. We, the Independents, are the camels. . At this point Mr. P. O'Sullivan arrived and was received with loud cheers from the entire audience, a large portion of which rose to their feet. Mr. S. K. Ka-ne was the next speaker. He said: Fellow-citizens I hear voices coming from all quarters of the Kingdom saying "Constitution,' etc. My profes sion is that of a lawyer, and the other three on our ticket are all home-bred bred lawyers. I shall ask you all, "Am la fit candidate for a Representative?" Answers from a thousand voices echoed through the hall, "You are fit."J Then I am satisfied : that is guarantee enough of our ticket being victorious. I have net come before you to-night to flatter you like others, who say they love Ha-. waii with all their heart, but mean the reverse. We want equality, and justice shall be maintained. He then read the Independent platform. The Chairman next called upon Mr. D. W. Pua, a candidate tor Noble, to epeak. He compared the different mer its of the Reform candidates for Repre sentatives and those of the Independent ticket, and claimed that the Independent candidates, being all lawyers, well edu cated, were better equipped for the posi tion than those on the Reform ticket, whom, he thought, were not 'able scholars. Mr. P. O'Sullivan", who was warmly received, was the next speaker, his re marks being interpreted by Mr. W. C. Achi. He said he was glad to face an enthusiastic audience, and could proudly say that there were not more than a dozen among them who were not in sympathy with him. The nine candi dates for Nobles and the four for Repre sentatives have been called by the Re form party a "joint stock com pany." Yes, it was a joint stock company, but it was not a company who possessed immense wealth, but the love of ttie people with the future prosperity of Hawaii at heart. Article 20 of the new Constftut ion af fected some of us. Compensation is nothing to your candidates for Repre sentatives, holding commissions as notaries public ; they will resign those moneyed positions and work to promote the best interests of all. We are the men who see the flaws in the new Con stitution. A few nights ago I told you "reform" was the watchword of the Re form party ; and I shall now continue in the same strain. These Reformers, in their infancy, have thrown more than one-half of $4,000 into the deep. If it had not been for the Independent party they would not have returned one cent. Loud applause. It is very easy to re turn one-half of what was actually taken. There is no half-way house between right and wrong. Therefore, either re turn all or keep all. They claim it was a contract. It was fraud more than a contract. He had been advised by the memorable "thirteen" to take the rmoney, and to take all he could get, too. Cheers. They could have taken $100, 000, but a second thought came to them better return a portion in order to pacify the irritated Hawaiians so. as to obtain their votes. Under their banner of "Reform" is dishonesty. Article 59 of the new Constitution deprives more than two-thirds of you from voting for Nobles, and you have been placed on the same footing as criminals. Isit a crime to be poor? One of your most respectable and honored citizens, af filiated to you by blood, owns immense property and pays . taxes. Of him a stranger, who came here two years ago, said in the convention: "Do I know him ? Is he in favor of reform ?" When told that he was, this stranger said that it was only when their bayonets glittered in the sun that he favored reform. Yes, we shall be glad to see their bayonets glitter in the air once more and after that see them sent to Mr. A. Yonng for old iron. Prolonged applauss. The Kingdom is yours, and not for usurpers. As Mr. O'Sullivan descended from the platform he was cheered again and again. Hon. Antone Rosa then spoke in Ha waiian. He said: My fellow-countrymen I come here to-night as one of your nominees for Representatives at the coming election. I shall first speak on the present situation of our country, be cause we are better equipped for amend ing the new Constitution to suit all than the others. I approve of the new Con stitution, with some exceptions. I ag. se with it because the right of removing the Cabinet has been taken away from the King. My principal objection is because it was not legally gotten up. The Legis lature makes laws and attends to the grievances of the people, but not with glistening bayonets. This fiendish ac tion teaches the peaceful Hawaiians to do likewise. Why could not Hawaiians those born on the soil go to the King with baj-onets and obtain a new Consti tution ? But I am exceedingly proud to say that the Hawaiians have taken a holy stand that of going to the Legisla ture to obtain laws, and nowhere else. We have been charged with being thieves by that clergyman pointing to the Rev. Mr. Oleson, a fine thing for a minister of the gospel to say. If elected 1 shall vote to lessen the property quali fication, if not to remove it entirely. Cheers. The new Cabinet swore un der oath that they would obey the Con stitution. What did they do on the 6th of July? Did they not go and beg the King to sign the new Constitution? Re member, I have no personal feelings against the Cabinet. They paid $14,000 out of theTreasury for the Makiki claims. That was an illegal performance. On the 30th day of June the leader of the Honolulu Rifles received $2,500 from the hands of the King, and for what? In order to save the latter's life. Cheers. The returning of only one-half out of $4,000 to the Treasury is an action worse than the opium bribe. The very first day the Reform party came into power they went to the King and demanded money, threatening his life if they did not gain their object. I have thus revealed these hidden secrets to you, so that you may know the true inwardness of the Reform party. The leader of the Rifles told his men that Mr. Gibson went after him sev eral times, offering him a certain posi tion. That was a falsehood. He came to me personally and begged for the posi tion. Although Mr. Gibson favored the proposition, no money was paid to him then. This person, being an acute lawyer, went to the King and got money. I do not know whether the Rifles are aware of these facts. The new Cabinet, when they came into power, said that they would settle the opium bribe ; but noth ing has been done so far. Mr. Aki has not yet obtained" his money. For my self, I am satisfied with my profession, at which I can obtain an honest liveli hood. Had I been seeking fortune when in office I might have possessed $10,000 to-day. You have no idea of the people who came to me with bribes. But I cared more for the welfare of my race than wealth. Do not allow your selves to be led blindly by strangers. A doctor said on this very platform, while officiating as Chairman of a meet ing, how dearly he loved Hawaiians. He does not mean it ; all he wants Is to be President of the Board of Health. If Messrs. Waterhouse and Castle profess their love for Hawaii you can believe them ; but not so with the $4,000-man, who does not own an inch of Hawaiian soil. The Reform party say they wish to preserve the independence of Hawaii. So do we ; and more than that we will preserve the independence of Hawaii as a Kingdom, not as a Republic. The Reform party has hired all the cabs in town to convev you all to the ballot box. They can do so. They are wealthy. Here we are, "gold and silver . have we none," but love for Hawaii is our great wealth. Should you see the Rifles next Monday parading the streets with arms, remain quiet and show that you are peaceful nation in times of revolution. They have publicly declared that if they do not carry the election they will pro claim war. Is that preserving the in dependence of Hawaii? Both the great Powers of Great Britain and America are anxious to annex us. I say we shall not come under their rule ; but rather they shall both look over us with protecting eyes. As Mr. Rosa took his seat he was loud ly applauded. Messrs. J. M. Poepoe and S. M. Kaau- kai also spoke and the meeting ad journed. It was exceedingly orderly throughout. LATE NEWS. A Boston special of August 29th says : Jesse Pomeroy, the child-torturer and murderer, who is serving a life sentence in the Charlestown State Prison, made a second attempt to secure his freedom a few nights ago. During the regular round on Friday night a guard who was leaning against a window carelessly felt two of the iron railings give way beneath the pressure of his hand, and a moment later they fell clattering to the ground. A second glance showed that the bars upon the other side had been worked upon, and that a few minutes later would render them as useless as broken ones. Hastily summoning the officials, another inspection wras made, and the broken and damaged bars were replaced with perfect ones and a tour of the cells begun. At Pomeroy's cell it was found that two massive iron gratings on the side nearest the window had been com pletely cut' through, but they were so fastened by means of gelatine that even the heavy clashing of the door failed to shake them. Pomeroy was immediately removed to safer quarters and searched, but nothing was found on his person but two slender saws. He refused to dis close who furnished them, where the gelatine had been obtained, or how long the work had been going on. New York, August 23d. -The career of Archibald Forbes, the famous war correspondent, is near at end. He was to arrive here in the fall and was to com mence a course of lectures, under the management of J. B. Pond, and had ar ranged to leave Liverpool on the 20th instant. Mr. Pond received from him a short time ago a letter in which he stated that he believed his health was now suf ficiently restored to enable him to travel in this country, and Mr. Pond notified the many lyceums with which he had made engagements accordingly. The following cablegram, received by Mr. Pond to-day, however, settles the mat ter : My health is wrecked. Cancel every thing. Archibald Forbes. It is understood that Mr. Forbes is in the last stages of consumption, and that he has not much longer to live. Chicago, August 29th. A Shoshone, Idaho, dispatch to-day says: Senator Hearst, with Governor Stevenson and Delegate Dubois, recently held a confer ence here regarding the proposed enlarg ment of the boundaries of Idaho, with reference to Statehood, which Idaho ex pects soon to demand. Senator Stew art's move to annex a portion of Idaho to Nevada has entirely collapsed. At the conference it was suggested that the Idaho line be extended northward through Montana so as to take in the counties of Beaver Head and Mis soula. Washington, August 30th. The Pres ident to-day appointed Professor G. Brown Goode, Assistant Director of the National Museum, to be Commissioner of Fish and Fisheries, vice Professor S. F. Baird, deceased. Judge McCue, So licitor of the Treasurer, who was first tendered the office, declined because of his lack of scientific knowledge. The office was also tendered Governor Thompson, Acting Secretary of the Treasurv. but he too declined for the 1 same reason. Professor Goode is a well known scientist, and was associated with Prof. Baird in many important duties of a scientific character. New York, August 30th. Senator Henry W. Corbett of Oregon, now at the Gilsey House, says the salmon catch In the Columbia River this season will probably reach 100,000 cases, or 4,800, 000 pounds. That is fully 20 percent below the usual amount, and he credits this falling off to the destruction of young fish by the use of the trap, which catches all sizes. Trappers do not care, and Corbett thinks the United States Government might as well take the rem edy in hand, especially as the Columbia River is the dividing line between Ore gon and Washington Territory. Phtladelphia, August 30th. This morning the announcement was made that Robert Hare, Powell & Co., and Robt. Hare, Powell Sons & Co., great coal mining firms, have failed, and the street was necessarily startled. John C. Bradley, manager of both firms, stated that the failure was the result of the sus pension of Chas. E. Pennock of Coaes- ville, an extensive iron merchant, whose paper bore the indorsement of both firms. The liabilities he placed at $1,500,000. The Governments of Sweden and Den mark are considering plan for a railway tunnel under the Sound between Copen hagen, in Denmark, and Malmo,in Swe den. The tunnel, as planned, is to have a total length of seven and one-half miles ; that is, two miles between Ama ger and the small islands of Saltholm and five and one-half miles between Saltholm and Malmo. The cost of con struction is estimated at about $6,000, 000. Washington, August 30th. By the re tirement of Rear Admiral Davis, an nounced to-day, the following promotions will be made : Commodore Braine, Rear Admiral ; Captain George Brown, Com modore; Commander William White head, Captain ; Lieutenant Commander G. A. Shetky, to be Commander ; Lieu tenant D. F. Dilly, to be Lieutenant Commander; J. C. Nicholson (junior grade), to be Lieutenant Ensign; G. W. Denfield, to be Lieutenant (junior). Detroit, August 29th. A fire at Del ray, eight miles from here, broke out this morning in the Dry Kiln Anchor Manufacturing Company, and quickly spread to other buildings. The com pany's loss will probably reach $250,000 or $300,000. The company's business is making cooperage supplies, and the property belongs to Peter Havemeyer's Sons of New York. The insurance is $46,000. Four hun dred employes will be affected. Ostend, August 24th. Fresh riots of a more serious nature than yesterday oc curred here to-day. After the depart ure of the British vessel Berwick, two other small English fishing boats, which had just arrived, were boarded by the Belgian fishermen, who forced their way to the vessels' sidest despite the opposi tion of the local authorities. The civic guards fired three times with blank car tridges, but, finding that no notice was taken, the troops were compelled to fire on the boarders with ball cartridges, wounding several men. All the quays and approaches to the harbor were occu pied in force by the troops, and the street car traffic was temporarily inter rupted. The natives are greatly excited, threatening to lynch the English ship owners. Major Hen bard's Reply, Honolulu, September 6, 1887. Mrs. M. H. Greene, Secretary W. U. T. TJ. Dear Madam : It was with great de light that I received your - communication ot the 2d instant, with the approval of the ladies of your society, in reference to the absence of liquor at the late banquet ten dered to Lieutenant-Colonel V.

Respectfully yours, H. F. Hebbard, - Maj. Hon. Rifle. The Independent. Platform.
