The result of the election given in this issue shows that the Reform ticket was elected throughout the island of Oabu. It was conducted in a very orderly man ner in all the wards, and reflect credit on those in charge. Very few voters failed to appear at the polls. A CALL FCR MISSIONARIES FOR HAWAII. The "Missionary Herald" for Septem ber has an article on "A renewed call from the Hawaiian Islands." After referring to the action of the American Board in turning over the care of the evangelical work at the Hawaiian Islands to the native church, the article goes on to say: "Nor should we look quietly on and see the churches that have been planted, at so much expense of money' and labor, and with so many prayers and tears, fall a prey to invaders. A con q . est that cost so much is worth a costly elfort to sustain it; and who can doubt that, should there be a call for such an effort, it would be made ? " Such a call is now heard, and it should have a quick response. Without throwing any discredit upon tho character of the Hawaiian race or upon the work done among them a generation ago, it is suf ficient to say that the circumstances under which the native churches have been, and are still placed, are of such an extraordinary character as to ac count for their need of help. No com munity in the world has suffered as the' have from the incoming of people of alien races and religion. Much is naid, and not too much, of the peril to our Christianity in the United States arising from immigration, and our Home Missionary Society sends out ringing calls for aid in withstanding the corrupting influence of imported Roman ism and infidelity. These foes appear not merely on our frontier, but in the old centers of population where formerly evangelical forces were so strong. The present demand is to save our cities "which were once well supplied with churches. A Correction. In our issue of Monday morning ap peared a report of a mass meeting held at the Armory Saturday evening. The paragraph referring to Mr. Ashford's mode of leaving the stairs, we are told, was incorrectly reported, and we are sorry it found its way into the paper. Topkka, Kan., August 30th. United States Deputy Marshal George Sharrett has arrested Dr. A. G. Abodlat, one of the Board of Pension Examiners at Lawrence, Kansas, on a charge of ex torting money from claimants. He said the Pension Department had been quiet ly investigating the conduct of things throughout Kansas, and some further developments are likely. The management of Castle Garden im migration is being investigated. Charges are made that there are monopolies in everything that it is possible an immi grant would want, and int-tead of food prices being less than those paid in the general markets, they are dearer. Mo nopolies in railroad routes.money-chang-ing, etc., are also complained of. ISLAND NOTES. Honokaa, Hawaii, Sept- 7th. The Portuguese store at Honokaa was robbfd of shout 4-200 worth of jewelry on laat Saturday niyht. A public meeting was held in the Ly ceum last Saturday evening, and was well represented, both by the native and foreign population. Messrs. W. A. Kinney and J. K. Kaunamano addressed the meeting. The latter gentleman spoke in favor of the new Constitution, but said it was defective, and explained at length what the defects were. He Hiiya there is no master and servants law in existence, and every shipped man in the country is at liberty to quit his employer. His ideas are that when the old Constitution was abolished all exist ing laws were abolished, and urged strongly on the voters to send him to the Legislature and he would have an entire new code of laws made to siuit the new Constitution. The railroad survey company have got as far as Honokaa, and expect to be through to Kukuihaele in about two weeks. Hilo, Hawaii, September 8th. The mass meeting held at Ilaili Church oh Saturday, the 3d instant, was a grand success, and the biggest political meeting ever held in Hilo. There were addresses by the gentlemen who anticipate being Nobles and Repre sentatives' and by G. J. Nawahi, Esq., who with Geo. C. Beckley, intend to run as Representatives in opposition to the regular ticket. The Portuguese turned out in large numbers, and were verjr en thusiastic. Vierra interpreted to them. All are anxiously waiting for election day and to hear the result. j The third entertainment of the Blue Ribbon League of Hilo was given at the Court House Hall on the 3d instant. The people showed their appreciation of these entertainments by attending in large numbers. D. H. Hitchcock, Esq., presided. The programme was a choice one. Special mention must be made of the vocal duet by Mrs. Severance and Mrs. H. C. Austin, which was applauded loud and long. Mrs. Austin possesses a nice alto voice and delights all who hear her. The solo of Lev'i Lyman was splendidly sun; he has a nice baritone voice and will make his mark. His in structor, Mrs. Hanford, deserves great credit. The recitation of Howard i Hitchcock" was good, as they always are, and appreciated. Mr. John Austin made his debut as a flutist in a duet with Mrs. H. C. Austin, to the delight of his many friends. The entertain ment closed with an address by Judge Lyman, urging all who had not signed the pledge to do so. Even those who do not favor having a licensed liquor saloon in Hilo say that those who have licenses should be pro tected, but they are not. One can go on any Sunday in a certain street and see people coming and going from stores with packages no police around, or at least not visible. This has been going on so for a long time. The brigantine Lurline is expected to leave for San Francisco on the 12th instant with a cargo of sugar from Wai naku, and several passengers. Hilo merchants would like to see a better and faster vessel put on the route between Hilo and San Francisco instead of the old brig Hazard. A vessel as large or larger than the Lurline is what is wanted. J. A. M. ;What tlie Japanese are itoinar. A special to the San Francisco "Ex aminer" of August 30th, has the follow ing: "The "Herald" correspondent has been at Portsmouth inquiring into the Chinese naval vessels there, and would now like some statistics touching your Japanese naval matters," said I fo the Secretary of the Japanese&Legation, at its quarters in Cavendish square. The Secretary was a handsome gentleman of his type, and spoke English as pictu resquely as he was dressed. He said : We have forty vessels, twenty-seven of which are of the new type of warships. These vessels are manned by 40,000 officers and men all told, all of them Japanese. No foreigners of any nation are employed about our vessels, which are different from the warships of China, inasmuch as their vessels are com manded by Englishmen. The only Europeans we employ are for naval in structors in our college. As to dockyards, we have three sta tions, viz. : Saseho, Kure and Yokosuga, while two more are contemplated to be built, but the sites are not yet settled. These three stations are also used as coaling depots and victualing yards. We are progressing so fast that five or six years hence we shall have quite a new navy compared to what we have now, and intend to keep improving day by day. At the present time our naval attache is in Toulon superintending the building of two new coast defense ves sels, besides which we ourselves are building six cruisers at our own dock yards in Japan. This step of increasing our strength was decided upon two years ago. Of course our navy is inferior in strength to China, but that country is so much large that naturally they require many mere vessels to guard it. One comparison of which we are proud, is that whereas China has so many ships-of-war, they are compelled to employ foreigners to build and command them ; whereas, in our country, we build them ourselves. The quQstion of coast defence is now the principal topic of conversation in Japan, and the wealthy people of our . . . 1 : l i .i cominj. voiuuiaiii v ouuscnoe Mieir money for that purpose. In addition to which subscription our Government has within the last few months imposed a new tax, which it calls an income tar, the proceeds going for naval and mili tary purposes, including the defense of our coast. The tax commences at 300 yen. For 300 yen the charge is 10 yen, and so on in the same proportion until 1,000 yen is reached, when the rate of tax increases. Now that we have plenty of money we intend shortly to com mence building new and fast ships-of-war in Europe. LOCAL AND GENERAL. Most of the island steamers sail to-day.
