THRUM Fort street WM. STRAHLMANN Hawaiian Hotel Five Cents per Capy. THURSDAY October 20th GERMANY AND HAWAII. The "Daily Alta California," of Octo ber 7th, says: The Samoan incident brings forward again the international view of our Hawaiian relations so often urged by the "Alta." It is announced that Germany is no party to the agree ment made by the United States, Eng land and France to protect the inde pendence and neutrality of that King dom. Germany not being a party there to, may attempt in Honolulu the bra. vado which has just been so successful in Apia. If the stealing of a pig and blacking of a German's eye in Samoa are adequate grounds for enforcing a fine and dethroning a King, the tetchy di plomacy which found such easy reasons for absorbing one island will not stop .at inventing causes for seizing a far more important group. It is as well now to let it be known that public sentiment in America will tolerate no such attempt upon Hawaii. Germany must keep hands off. She may as well attempt the same game on Long Island or project overthrow of a Governor of California. Our people will have none of it. ANNUAL MEETING Or tlie Planters' Labor Company. and Supply The planters met at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. Minutes of previous meeting read and approved. The Chair then an nounced that the Trustees had held a meet ing, when the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: H. P. Baldwin, Pres ident; H. F. Glade, Vice-President; P. C. Jones, Treasurer; W. O. Smith, Secretary. A report on fertilizers from Mr. Macfie was, oi motion, ordered to be printed in the Planters' Monthly," as it was re ceived too late in the session to be read be fore the meeting. A discussion on the report of the Com mittee on Legislation then ensued. Mr. . Maieu mat ne am not tninK that it was within the province of this com- E. M. Walsh stated that he did not think change in the time for holding the sessions of the Supreme Court. He thought rather that if any change was required the Board of Trade should make the suggestion, as they would be the most benefited by it. Mr. Walsh then moved that the report be adopted with the exception of the clauses referring to the Supreme Court. After an explanation from Mr. Dole of the nature of this report .Mr. Walsh with drew his motion. Mr. Castle said that the road tax here after would be expended in the districts where collected, and the planters would be luus ueiieniea. ne wouia lite the com pany to draft a bill to be presented to the next Legislature in regard to road taxes, and he assured them that the Legislature would take notice of it. Colonel Spalding said that twenty years ago he never paid any road tax, he took his men (plantation labor) and kept the roads in repair in and around the planta tion at no expense to the Government for costly Road Supervisor-in-Chief. and the roads were in better condition and kept so than they have been since the office ot Road Supervisor-in-Chief has been inaugurated. Mr. Spalding then offered a resolution to the effect that the report of the committee be adopted without any alterations or amendments, which was carried. Mr. J. M. Horner then read the follow ing resolution : Whebeas, At the last annual meeting of the Planters Labor and Supply Company the following resolution was passed : Resolved, That the Planters' Labor and Supply Company hereby place themselves on record as being opposed to an opium license, which they consider injurious to the planting interest of the company, and regret that a law permitting it was passed ; that we wish at this meeting to reiterate and emphasize said resolution. And fur ther, that we hereby urge and petition the Legislature at its next session to repeal f aid law. " ' Mr. Dole then offered the following reso lution on the same subject: Wherkas. The licensing of the sale of nninm in this Kinerdom has resulted in largely extending its use, which is not con fined only to the Chinese, but is also spread ing and increasing among Hawaiians and others, and Whereas, The agricultural, laboring. mechanical and other interests of the coun try are injured and depressed in a degree corresponding to the spread of said use of opium, and Whereas, The injury done to said inter ests and to individual users of opium is not, and never can be, compensated by any mere revenue to be derived by the Govern ment from the opium license, therefore Resolved, That it is the opinion of the Planters' Labor and Supply Company that the law licensing the sale of opium ought to be repealed as soon as possible, not to conflict with rights now outstanding, and that the Government and the Legislative Assembly ought to use every effort to con trol the use of opium ; that its sale and use should be made unlawful, and mat me traffic should be stamped out by vigorous legislation, and for that purpose this asso ciation favors the re-enactment of the law of 1874, or similar legislation. On motion the resolution of Mr. Dole was adopted. A resolution was then read to the effect that it is the sense of this company that the office of Road Supervisor-in-Chief be abol ished, and that a Road Commission con sisting of three men be appointed for each of the different islands, to serve without pay. After a lengthy discussion on the sub ject an amendmentjwas offered to the res olution that a Road Supervisor-in-Chief for each island be appointed to act under the direction of the Road Commission. This caused considerable debate, and Mr. Spalding moved an amendment to the amendmentthat the Road Supervisor-in-Chief be stricken out, which was carried. Mr. Walsh then offered the following resolution : That the licensing of liquor saloons in the country districts has been detrimental to the planting interests, and it is the sense of this company that they be abol ished, which was unanimously carried. On motion of Mr. Jones the whole mat ter of the "Planters' Monthy" was re ferred to the Trustees. Mr. T. R. Walker then read a very inter esting report on forestry, in which was em bodied some valuable suggestions in regard to this interesting matter. A discussion then ensued in regard to the influence of forest on the rainfall, after which the meeting adjourned until 2 p. m. MRS. RICHARD ARMSTRONG. A Notable Reception Tendered to That I.arty in Boston. The Boston "Herald" of October 4th has the following, which no doubt will be of interest to many of our readers : Yesterday afternoon's weather was hardly such as would tempt many ladies from their homes, even in carriages, and yet a large company, consisting of the Ladies' Foreign Mission Society con nected with the Eliot Churchat Newton, gathered in the parlors of Mrs. G. D. Gilman to meet one of the noblest and and one of the earliest workers in the mission field of the Sandwich Islands, sent out by the American board, Mrs. C. C. Armstrong of San Francisco, wife of Dr. Richard Armstrong and mother of General Armstrong. It was at this residence that Queen Kapiolani was tendered her reception as she came trom the morning exercises given in her honor at Wellesley College, but perchance even a queen might envy the homage and admiration which the T i , lUiCC D,ulo JCa1D .m lCu, muo. cAuto iu every nrisuan iiearC. recepuon was - i 1 a k I - 1 ZZSrsZS the children of many of her friends and OfinnoinraTipoa in nmao ctrra Kir hnai tiaa I r-.w-b many residents of Newton and vicinity Lu', w th!?Ugh misslonar ,wofk- The meeting was called to order bv t j iuio. vuariea jjiiuiigs, jrresiutjm 01 mtj Society, who conducted devotional exer cises and then introduced Mrs. Arm strong, who said in her introductory re marks that what she might say would be only in the nature of an informal talk about missionary life in the Sandwich Islands, but people in the vicinity of Boston were supposed to know these Islands as wrell as herself, especially after the visit of the royal party. She then gave a brief sketch of her own early life as a farmer's daughter, " teaching school sometimes and going to school some aL t il F j 1 umes me xormer somecning rare in those days, when women's work in the ment of his Iate claim against the Gov various professions was hardly known eminent on condition that he would not until she came to Boston as a bride, and went with her husband to bia ApIH this heathen land. This was in 1831. and the journey was made from Boston to New Bedford in an old-fashioned joltin stasre coach. Rev. Daniel Groor. nmn. i 4f -w W Ml VVwXlA I panying them and Rev. Samuel Holmes receiving them at that place. The pas sage was to be made in a whaling vessel, and the Christian ladies of that town brought the departing missionaries all kinds of furniture, edibles and furnish- mgs to help mitigate the hardships of the vovaee. kindnesses which were re- .a . I membered throughout all these years with gratitude, although a storm before v w w " their arrival at Rio Janeiro swept almost I all these gifts from the deck. There were 19 persons in the com pan y, and the voyage was of six months' dura- tion. All the passengers suffered greatly during that time, as the vessel was not in the least adapted to passenger carry- ing. In this storm the oil for the binna- cie naa Deen wasnea overboard, and . ' S therefore the butter from the table had to be used for that purpose until a black fish was caught, when the butter was again used for its proper purpose. When the ship put in at Rio Janeiro for repairs the passengers were able to take a three weeks' rest, and a wealthy Scotch mer chant kindly invited Mrs. Armstrong and another lady to his home during that time. The beauties of Rio Janeiro were described, and the sad feelings inspired by the sight of slaves carrying bags of coffee on their backs through the planta- tion chanting in Spanish, " I'm a poor slave! I'm a poor slave!" as they worked. "I thank God," said Mrs. Armstrong, " that my son, who was born in a pagan land, is doing missionary work in a Chris tian land at Hampton." An interesting account of the gathering of missionaries on the Hawaiian Islands, the modes of transportation and of living was then given, a small model of a grass-thatched hut being used to illustrate a description of the native houses. The curiosities upon the table were taken up and their uses explained by the speaker, the next in order being a circlet of yellow ohoh " feathers, valued at $500, similar to the one worn by Queen Kapiolani while she was in Boston. Then there wTas a neck lace made of woven threads of human hair, clasped by a polished human bone, several beautiful specimens of "kapa," a kind of cloth made by beating out the bark of trees, wrhich was patterned in rude, yet often harmonious designs, by a block of wood in which various designs were cut ; a pipe smoked by Kameha meha I., and some very fine rush mat ting. Native utensils, polished cocoanut bowls, rare woods made up into all sort s of dishes, and a calabash bottle covered with odd carving and inlaying. Many other interesting articles from Mr. Gilman's fine collection were viewed by the ladies at the close of Mrs. Arm strong's earnest and charming talk. Mrs. B. Spaulding, who went out in the same ship with Mrs. Armstrong, is now on a visit to friends in Providence, her home being at Evanston, 111. These tw o ladies, who went out to this field as brides, and who bade one another fare well on an island of the Pacific, will meet again after these many years at Mrs. Gilman's home, as Mrs. Spaulding is ex pected to arrive in Newton at any mo ment. . LATE NEWS. T i 1 - m i i i -derlin, Jct-Der iu. rue latest re ports from Tabalach regarding the Prince Imperial are very disquieting. There is no doubt but what the cancerous growth, destroyed temporally by the severe cau terization to which Dr. Mackenzie sub jected his imperial patient, has reap peared with greater violence. To-day even the Court papers speak of his con dition as being very grave, and much re gret is expressed on all sides that the imperial patient did not continue his journey further south than Tabalach, where for the past few days the therm ometer ha3 been between 7 and 3 de grees above zero. The Prince Imperial is physically incapable of standing the caustic treatment again, and the present treatment consists merely in the inhala tion of bismuth for the purpose of al leviating the pain. The receipt of this neWB has created quite a sensation here. On every side are heard expressions of sympathy for Unser Fritz and for the popular Princess Imperial, so soon many fear, to become a widow. Washington, October 9th. Messrs.

Calcutta, October 10th. Dhuloop Singh has written a letter to the native papers of India, in which he says Eng land has offered him $250,000 in settle- K to lndia. He rejected the offer. His arrest at Aden, he savs, converted his loyalty to hitter hatred of England, and he has solemnly resolved to devote his lue to freeinS his country from the Brit- - h yoke. He declares that he will serve his new Sovereign, the Czar, with his life's blood. It is expected that the letter will induce the journals published in the Indian vernacular to make a com bined attack on British rule. Paris, October 6th. James G. Blaine is taking Paris quietly. He has become stouter since his trin to the vrafprin - places. He is out of doors nearly all day. Although the weather is far from - - r- w w amm propitious, yesterday he drove about the city, visiting various points of interest. and in the afternoon he and Mrs. Blaine took a long walk on the boulevards. He has left the Hotel Vendome and taken a suite of rooms at the Blinds, which is the American headquarters. New York. October 9th.-Tr- Thistle will cfr, t . , -w T I- - w .a.-. V 1 -k-L-b. fcJ !!.. .

Byrd Page, champion j running high jumper of the world, was given by an athletic association to-day. Page made a running high jump and succeeded in breaking his own record of 6 feet 3 inches by jumping 6 feet 4 inches. He was afterwards presented with a gold watch. City of Mexico, October 6th. Con gress has before it, and will pass to final enactment, a resolution approving a constitutional amendment permitting re-election of a President of the Republic for the second term, two-thirds of the States having ratified the amendment, thus giving it the force of law. Paris, October 9th. In consequence of the arrest of many foreigners sus pected of being spies, the Government has instructed the department officials to exercise great caution in applying the espionage law, and not to make arrests except upon evidence. Several more arrests have been made. In connection with the Coffaret case, a Senator, a Gen eral and Count Dundlau have been sum moned. Vienna, October 10th.
