THRUM 4 rt street WM. STRAHLMANN Hawaiian Hotel Five Cents per Copy. MONDAY : : November 21st Sir Henry Parkes, Premier of New South Wales, has resigned, owing to in solvency. He has, however, been re elected. The Sydney. "Herald" says that the U. S. Minister Resident at Honolulu "does more governing than the outside world supposes." It is reported that it is the intention of the Imperial Government to concede responsible Government to . Western Australia. Planters at Demarara intend to abandon the manufacture of crystal augar and produce instead dark sugars, intended for the American market. Both Victoria and New South Wales now refuse to issue naturalization papers to Chinte. The next step anticipated is a definite agreement to a JE100 poll tax. Among the Captain Cook relics se cured for the New South Wales Govern ment is a feather cloak which was thrown over Captain Cook's shoulders by King Kalaniopuu, of Hawaii, on Jan uary 26, 1779, also a feather helmet. M. Sans-Leroy, who was commis sioned by the French Government to investigate the question of sugar boun ties on the Continent, has submitted his report to the Chamber of Deputies. He lound that all the European Exchequer authorities were strongly desirous of suppressing the bounty system. The Convention which has been con cluded between the British and French Governments regarding the New Heb rides question, makes no mention of the recidiviste question; but it is under stood that the assurances given by M. de Freycinet in October, 1885, that no French criminals should be transported to those islands, will be adhered to. During the stay of the German steamer Albatross at Thursday Island a Samoan endeavored to obtain an inter view with King Malietoa, but the offi cers peremptorily ordered him off. He afterwards saw Moree, the King's brother, who told him that Malietoa was under arrest, that he accompanied his brother, and that it was intended to convej' the party to Germany. England is reported to have con cluded a treaty with the King of Tonga, by which no concessions will be made to foreign Powers without the consent of Great Britain. A report is current that the Consul there will hoist the British flag and proclaim a British Protectorate should the Germans show a disposition to interfere. Lord Brassey's secretary has written a denial of the truth of a report to the effect that Lady Brassey met her death through having, whilst in a state of de lirium induced by the fever from which she was suffering, jumped overboard from the yacht Sunbeam. It appears by the arrival of the Messageries steam ship Caledonian recently at Ade laide, that Lady Brassey died on Wednesday, September 14th, at 10:22 a. ro. The yacht's position at the time was in lat. 15 deg. 44 min. south, and long. 11 deg. 52 min. east. Her lady-, ship's remains were consigned to the deep the same day, at 5 :30 p. m. Light sails were taken in, and the ship hove to. Dr. Hoffmeister read the service for the burial of the dead at sea, and all was over. The spot in which the re mains were consigned to the waves is in lat. 15 min. 50 deg. south, and long. 10 min. 45 deg. east. THE SAN FRANCISCO MAIL SERVICE. The New Zealand " Herald" of Octo ber 14th contains the following article, showing the superiority of the San Fran- Cisco man service, as ai icui out by the Oceanic Steamship Company, over the Suez route and the direct steam service : By the simultaneous arrival yesterday of the mail via San Francisco and the mail conveved by the direct steam serv ice further evidence is supplied, not sim- j ply of the superiority of the San Francisco mail route, for that has long ago been undoubted, but of the uselessness of the direct steam route. The direct mail by the Rimutaka brings London dates to the 26th of August, and the San Francisco mail by the Alameda brings dates to the 12th of September, or a fortnight later; and yet they both arrived at Auckland on the same day, and were distributed together. To speak of comparing the two routes, therefore, would only be a misuse of words. They can only be contrasted, and the contrast tells so heavily against the direct mail route that it is astonish ing any one could be found favoring the use of it any longer. Nothing could more clearly demonstrate how, by continuing to employ it, the Colony sustains a loss both in time and money, than the fact that, if the mail put on board the Rimu taka on the 26th of August had been sent by San Francisco, it would have reached Auckland a fortnight ago, and been dis tributed all over the Colony at least ten days earlier than it has been. Instead, therefore, of arguing, as some people in the South are in the habit of doing, that the San Francisco service should be abol ished, it is the terminating of the direct mail service that they should insist on. If the San Francisco service were made a fortnightlv one, in place of a monthly one, as it is now, not only would all parts of the Colony have their mails more quickly and regularly conveyed and de livered, but a great saving to the Treas ury would also be effected. At present, by the remission of the postages, the San Francisco service may be said to cost the Colony a. mere trifle ; and, were the serv ice fortnightly instead of monthly, its cost would be virtually reduced to noth ing; whereas the direet steam service forms a charge on the public revenue of 20,000 a year; and were the San Fran cisco service dispensed with that sum would certainly be more than doubled. As further showing the worthlessness of the direct mail service, and how un warrantably the money of the Colony is being thrown away upon its maintenance, it is only necessary to say that the Suez route confers superior mail advantages upon the Colony. Here comparison may be legitimately resorted to, and it will certainly be found adverse to the direct steam route. For example, a mail which had left London on the 28th of August, two days, that is, after the mail for warded by the Rimutaka, was delivered in Auckland on Monday last, or three days earlier than the Rimutaka's mail. Had that Suez mail left London on the same date as the Rimutaka's mail it would, with proper Australian connec tions, have been delivered at all the prin cipal ports of Newr Zealand five days be fore the Kaikoura arrived at Wellington. For mail matter sent hither, via Suez, the Colony pays at much the same rate as that allowed the Direct Steam Service Company, so that in this resiect there is not much to choose between these two routes. But, in respect of time, the ad vantage to the Colony offered by the Suez route, as compared with the direct route, is undeniable. We have, there fore, no hesitation in saying that, if ever our legislators should exhibit the folly of abolishing the San Francisco service, it is the Suez route, in preference to the di rect one, which ought then to be adopted. But the San Francisco service is not going to be abolished. On this point, the Government and the House had better understand at once that North New Zea land will submit to no parleying. If, in their desire for retrenchment, they wish to reduce the mail expenditure, let them knock off the service which is really prac tically useless, and, besides, entails on the Colony an unnecessary expense; but let them beware of even so much as trifling with that via San Francisco, which, as a mail service, is indisputably the swiftest, the cheapest and the best for the Colony as a whole. C'entral Union Church. Last evening services were held at the Fort-street church in recognition of the new church organization, and also serv ices of installation of the pastor elect, the Rev. E. G. Beck with D. D. The church was crowded in every part and the exer cises lasted nearly two hours. The music by the Choir was excellently rendered. Th Rev. A. D. Bissel of Wailuku read the minutes of the Council and Mr. F. W. Damon the Scripture lesson. The following addresses were given: The Ne cessity of the New Organization, by Rev. W. C. Merritt; The Future of the New Organization, Rev. W. B. Oleson; Ad dress of Recognition, Rev. J. Waiamau, translated by Rev. Mr. Bicknell; Ad dress to the People, Rev. T. L. Gulick. The Rev. H.' H.

Minister Brown presented the following statement on behalf of the Minister of Fi nance : Hon. S. G, Wilder, President of the Leg islative Assembly Sir: In answer to the question of Rep. Brown I have the honor to report that the payments by the present Cabinet on Cabinet resolutions are as fol lows : Running expenses of Steam Tug.$ 5,269 43 Expenses of Election 3,302 64 Makiki Claims. 12,200 00 Total.! $20,832 12 The report was accepted and laid on the table. THE BONDS. Minister Ashford' said in regard to the matter referred to him the previous even ing, that he had drafted a proposed Act, and it would, include in schedule form the bond in full. It was now in the hands of the printer and will be ready Monday morn ing. GOVERNMENT LANDS. Minister Thurston presented a tabulated statement on Government lands, in answer to questions by Noble Townsend. The statement was laid on the table for the use of members. FURTHER TIME WANTED. Minister Ashford,from the committee on the bills relating to District Justices and in ternal police, asked to be allowed further time. Granted. UNFINISHED BUSINESS. Consideration of the Act supplemental to the Appropriation Bill in committee of the whole, Noble Dole in the Chair. FOREIUN OFFICE. Incidentals Foreign Office, $400. Passed. ATTORNEY GENERAL'S DEPARTMENT. Incidentals, criminal and civil expenses, $3,000. Passed. BOARD OF HEALTH. Salary of President. $2,000. Rep. Daniels moved the item be stricken out. Minister Thurston moved it pass for the reasons he had previously stated. Noble Smith asked if the $2,000 was for one quarter's salary, as that would be at the rate of $8,000 a year. Minister Thurston said the salary was to be $4,000 a year. The President took office October 1st. and the $2,000 would be salary from then to March 31, 1887. Noble Wight asked if one of the duties of the President would be to travel around the islands and look after the physicians and the gathering in of lepers. Minister Thurston said it would. Noble Castle asked if he was to devote his entire time to the work. Minister Thurston said that was the in tention, though it was not so stated. Rep. Helekunihi objected to passing the appropriation, as he did not believe m pay ing the President. He did not think he would do his work any better for being paid. Rep. Kinney moved to insert after $2,000 the words "provided the incumbent en gages in no other occupation for 'pay." He had a conversation with the President the other day, and would say that he is en gaged as physician at the Lunalilo Home. He could not attend properly to his duties as President if he held that position. It might be necessary to give a larger salary to get a good man, and he would favor that. Rep. Kamuoha asked if there was an un derstanding that the salary should com mence October 1st. Minister Thurston said there was if the Legislature passed the item. Rep. Kamuoha then moved the item pass at $1,000. Rep. Paris said he voted the other day for salary for President of the Board of Health. If he is to engage in private prac tice as well he would vote against it. The President should give his entire attention to the work. Noble Smith was sorry Rep. Kinney's amendment had been brought in. This would shut him out entirely from private practice. With regard to the Lunalilo Home, Che Trustees would have to get an other physician. The amendment is an unnecessary and harsh restriction. Other Government officers are not so restricted, with the exception of the Auditor General. Rep. Kauhane was in favor of passing the item without restriction. The man who takes an interest in his work is the one wanted to fill the position. Rep. Kauhi would ask if by paying a salary to the President, it would prevent the spread of leprosy. He would say, no. As he said the other day, not until the ocean covered these islands would leprosy be stamped out. 'With regard to the salary of $4,000 to be paid the President, the best way to get rid of it was for a committee of five to take it and throw it outside the reef. Leprosy will go on spreading in spite of a paid President. He would like to enter into newspaper discussion with Mr. Schmidt, the Norwegian Consul, on this subject. If they were to get a doctor to comejiere who could cure leprosy, it would be worth while to pay him $50,000. Rep. Kinney said it did not express the feeling of the community to leave the door open for the President to indulge in private practice.. The community will not go through the mortal agony in the next six years that they had done in the past six. They must put blinders on the president, pay him well and tell him he must not turn either to the right or left. Noble Young was much in favor f the restriction. If they had a paid president he must attend to his duties. No one ex pects that the rew president is going to cure leprosy, but "prevention is better than cure." Everything possible should be done for those unfortunate people. If there is a paid president he was in favor of him attending strictly to his duties and exercis ing vigilance. He would recommend the amount pass as in bill. Minister Ashford thought that with re gard to this office the responsibility in the first place would rest with the conscience of the president, and secondly that the Cabinet should keep him up to his mark and see that he attends to his duties. He thought that a president to properly attend to his duties would have no time for private practice. He would object to the president holding the office of physician at Lunalilo Home. But they ought to discuss the office and not the man. As long as he was a member ot the Cabinet he would see that the President and all other members of the Board of Health would properly attend to their duties. No other Government official except the Auditor-General, is restricted from private practice. The amendment by Rep. Kinney was then put and carried by a vote of 19 to 18. The item passed as amended. Section 2 was passed as follows: Section 2. The appropriations hereby made shall be subject to Sections 2, 3. 4, 5 and 6 of the above-mentioned Act. The title was read and passed. Minister Ashford moved the committee rise and recommend to the House that the bill pass to engrossment with certain amendments. Agreed to. On the House resuming the chairman reported, and the report was adopted. Noble Smith moved that the bill to ap propriate $10,000 lor the necessarj' expenses of the extra session of 1887 be acted upon by the House. The motion carried and the bill was read a third time and passed. Minister Ashford moved that the House when it adjourn to-day, adjourn to 9 o'clock Monday morning. This was to enable them to have time to consider the bond matter as the steamer for the Coast left on Tuesday. Agreed to. At 12:05 the House adjourned to 9 o'clock Monday morning. Legislative Chit-Chat. The House meets at 9 o'clock this morn ing. The bond matter comes up to-day. Nobles Notley and Bailey are going to make all their speeches at the next ses sion, as they will have more time. A legal member of the House, referring to Noble Foster's proposed resolution to prohibit the lawyers in the Legislature speaking, said Noble Foster reminded him of the belle about whom it is written: "Sbe winks and giggles and simpers, And simpers and giggles and winks. And though sbe says but little. It's a good deal more than she thinks." ISoble Smith wears No. 14 boots. With the exception of Itep. Kalaukoa's, they are the largest on the floor of the House. Rep. Kauhi's wit is a relief to some of the dry speeches that are made. Some of the Representatives are wonder ing whether they will get anv pay this session. No, gentlemen; economy is the watchword. Better take up a collection among your constituents. The Attorney General has the longest moustache, and Rep. Kinney the shortest. - A crank is not a proper term to apply to a member ol I'arhament. Nolte's appears' to be the Legislative hash house this session. It Is Said That there will be considerable debate on the English bond matter; that important news will be sent by the steamer to-mor row ; that the new moon was seen last night ; that there are too many doctors in town ; that the roads are drying up ; that the air is purer since the rain ; that there will be another boat race next Monday ; that the Legislature will ad journ on Saturday; that the country members will be glad if it does ; that Malietoa will die before he reaches Ger many; that America and England ought not to have let him been taken prisoner ; that lots of turkeys will be eaten this wTeek. Luau Tor the Lepers. Dr. N. B. Emerson, President for the Board of Health, is arranging for a luau to be given to the inmates at the Branch Hospital, Kakaako, on Thursday next, Thanksgiving day. Any person who feels like contributing towards this object should leave their contribution with Mr. J. T. Waterhouse Jr., Queen street, who will gladly receive them. We feel sure that anything done to alleviate the suffer ings and make glad the hearts of these poor unfortunate people will receive the support of the community. The Riiis's Birthday at Lahaiun. A grand luau was given at Lahaina last Thursday in honor of His Majesty's birthday, at which nearly a thousand people sat down. In the evening a ball was given at the Courthouse. At the re gatta in the afternoon Aloha's whaleboat crew won two races, beating Kalna's crew. A crew from the steamer Mokolii also won a race. Thanksjrj vitis Service. Thursday next being Thanksgiving day there will be a special service in St. Andrew's Cathedral at 11 o'clock in the morning. The choir will be aug mented and on the occasion render a full choral service with anthem and special hymns. A Thanksgiving sermon will be preached by the Rev.

Two Distinct Classes of Colored People in the City of New York. "Flaneur's' New York Letter. The series of balls which have been given durinz the past week in the Madison Square garden have been immensely amusing, both in their novel tv and the keen enjoyment of the people who participate! in them. The -numbers' asociation, Itetail urocers. asso ciation, the En-ineers. and last, but not least, a big ball given by the proprietors and editors of j our na Is for the benentor. tne col ored peopl.?, served to make the week at the Madison Square garden one or iestivity ana joy. There were nearly 2.000 negroes m the garden by 2 o'clock, an I they had sand wiches, lager beer, ion cream kronK Deer, apple pie, cranberry trt, red herrings, and cigars in profusion. Negroes dance naturally, ltiomesas ea-sy to ta.-m as singing, ana 1 4. 1 m have seldom seen any mora graceiui waltz ing than that of soma 01 the handsomely dressed men and women from the up-town colony of negro-as of N :v York. There are two distinct classes of our colored popula tion. The "common" negroes, as they are called, by which is meant the hard workers, unpretentious dressers, aal poverty-stricken members of tbair race, live in the vicinity of Prince, Sullivan, Thompson, and Houston streets, in a neigh b rhood which is nearly two milas below the fashionable dwelling house dbtrlct. The wvll-to-do, highly re spectable, dandyfied, and pretentious colored poople, however, nearly all belong to an up town colony which is in the vicinity or Twenty-sixth street. Sixth avenue is the nitrhfc promenade for these negroes, and some of them live in a style wh .ch is rather astonishing to people out of town. Many of the colored porters, janitors and restaurant-keepers in lower New York have an income as high as $ J.UUO, and they live in flats and apartments, with their own servants, and bring up their children at the public schools with all the advantages of public education. There ara colored women in this district, and hun dreds of them at that, who are thoroughly educated, dress quietly and n . a i 1 . n : a ... m perlect taste, ana uuk quite we'll as many of their white sisters. I know what I am talking about in this case, because I made an extensive tour once among the e people, in company with a de tective. The residents of this section are the "dandy niggers," as they are called, slim, graceful and swinging young bucks, who may be seen parading on Fifth avenue Sunday afternoons. They are valets, wait ers, butlers, clerks and light porters, and every penny they earn goes on their backs. They have no end of clothes, and are given to appearing in the most startling contrasts. Their affections are centered particularly in over-gaiters, which they wear in all col ors, from bright green to dark maroon. In the matter of attire they are uncommonly gorgeous at their ball at Madison Square garden. And they danced till tho early iiour of the morning with the utmost de light. Hundreds of them came to the ball in carriages, and quite a number of them were in dress suits. Gordon's Fatal Halfpenny. Buffalo Express. How did Gor.lon happen to go to Khar toum? The first proposal to that effect ap peared in the Pall Mall Gazette, and it has been supposed that the idea originated with that paper; but tho New York Evening Post says it has good grounds for believing that it originated in an entirely different manner that Gordon telegraphed the editor of the Gazette suggesting himself as the man to solve the Egyptian problem and asking whether the editor would support him. An affirmative ans wer was sent, the editor "rep resented" the paper in an interview at South ampton, and the two or three articles which were supposed to be expressing the demand of the people were written by Mr. Stead in Gordon's own study, and submitted to him in manuscript before being sent to London. The Post says: "We wonder wrhether Gordon sought divine guidance on that occasion by his usual method of tossing a halfpenny. If so, his fatalism betrayed him at the crisis of his life." Never Will Quarrel Again. Chicago Herald "Meddler." "Times must be getting iretty hard with the lawyers," remarked a traveling man. "At least that's what it looks like. My wife and I live in a flat in town. You know in these flats everybody knows everybody else's business. My wife and I have our little spats, as I s'pose all married folks do. About three months ago we had quite a little quarrel and talked pretty loud at each other, both bein' excited. While we were at it I heard a slight noise at our door, turned and looked, and there came a card sliding in under the .door, and on it was printed the name and address of a lawyer who lives in the building, and on it he had penciled: "Divorces promptly attended to." He was soliciting our trade, you see, but he'll never get it. When we saw that my wife 'and I made up and swore we would never quarrel again. So even a sneaking little lawyer is capable of doing some good in this world, you see." Gannoyle and tne coora. New York Mail and Express. Lord Garmoyle can appreciate a good story when he tell it himself. His ad venture with a cobra when in India shows him to be a man of nerve. , "I was awak ened one niglit by a severe pain hi one of my toes. Looking down in the dim light cast by the moon I was, horrified to discover that I was being bitten by a cobra, the most poisonous of reptiles. To stop to kill the snake would be to let the insidious poison do its deadly work. I did not hesitate, how ever, but, swiftly snatching my revolver from beneath my pillow, with hasty aim I shot off the wounded toe, while another empty -chamber instantly told of a dead cobra. I have only four toes on my left foot now, you know." Tea-Growing in the Caucasus. Foreign Letter. Owing to the growing depression in the wheat crop the Russian government has decided to start the coming summer a tea plantation on a large scale at Soukum, Kali, in the Caucasus region, and to import coolies from China to work it Experiments in a small. way have proved that tea can be grown in the Caucasus, but so far it has cost almost as much per pound as that grown by the United States government in South Carolina, which was a matter of $2. SO a pound or' thereabouts. Russians are great tea-drinkers, importing annually 72,000,000 pounds, one-half of which is brought over land across Siberia and the remainder to Odessa and Cronstadt by sea. A Little Too Much Lemon in Ills. New York Journal. "I'm very fond of lemons," said a would "be funny man to a friend. "I knew that before you told me," he re plied. "Why, how so?" "Because lemons clear tha system of hu mor, you Lnow." Cleveland Journal: The president never visits foreign ministers at the offices of their legations, because in so doing he would the oretically be going out of tha United States.
