The first number of an eminently use ful monthly publication under this name by the steamship Australia fo: the Coast. A notice appeared in these columns some few months since, describing its general scope and design, and now that the paper itself is before us we can cor dially congratulate the proprietary, to gether with the business manager, Mr. J. J. Williams, upon the excellent man ner in which the original intentions have been carried out. One of the most prominent wants of mankind in this age of travel is a ready means of gaining reliable information respecting a country one intends to visit. vvnatever a man s purpose in going abroad business or pleasuie he wants to know beforehand what land is best adapted to that purpose. There is the general newspaper press, it is true ; but as a rule that does not tell him all he needs. It is devoted to the interests of local residents, wno, wim comparatively few exceptions, constitute its readers. It seldom publishes standard knowledge about the place, simply because such knowledge, to the great majority of its readers, would be nothing new. The "Paradise of the Pacific" steps in where the general newspaper fails. The intending visitor may learn from it just what he will find when he gets here. 1 1 "J A- 1 "ll. 1 ? 1 The points of interest, the means cf reaching them, the lucious fruits that grow here, the kind of people that live here and various things are communi cated in 'readable form in the course of eieht Dasres. a prominent feature of which is a well executed print of the city of Honolulu, with its majestic back ground of mountain ranges, taken from the deck of a vessel outside the reef. The paper will be found extremely use ful to foreigners who de. ire to know more about the Hawaiian Islands, and we believe it to be well calculated to pro mote local commerce. As such it is de serving of liberal support. A Leper Attempts Suicide. Word was received in this city yester day that a Chinaman, a leper, had com mitted suicide at Ewa. It appears he was under arrest for being a leper and after being taken into a house he asked his captor to allow him to retire to an other room. This was done and a little later oni he was found with his throat cut and apparently dead. Dr. Emerson, President of the Board of Health, who was notified at once sent Dr. Wood to the spot. The latter who was quite sick with fever of course expected the man was dead and did not take anything with him. Wrhen he arrived at Ewa he found the Chinamen still living. He returned quickly to town and after re porting was compelled to go to bed. Dr. Kodgers went down and the latest from him is that it is impossible for the man to live. His name is Ah Chin and he has leprosy of the tubercular form of the worst kind. Samoa n Views.

Tlie Prisoner Ah Tnclc on Trial lore a Foreign Jury. Be- in the Supreme Court yesterday the case of the King vs. Ah Tuck, murder, was called. His Honor the Chief Jus tice and Justices Bickerton and Dole were on the Bench. The prisoner was arraigned on the 7th, and pleaded not guilty. The following jury was empan elled: E. C. Damon, A.

The prisoner was defended by Paul Neumann, the Court having assigned the case to him. Ah Tuck is a stout man of medium height. His face is not a really pleasant one to look at. He oc cupied a seat next to his counsel, and appeared to take a close interest in the proceedings. Mr. A. P. Peterson, Deputy Attorney General, conducted the case on behalf of the Crown, and after the jury had been sworn, he stated the particulars of the affair, which he said was a serious one to the prisdner and to the community. The first witness he called was S. M. Kaukai, who testified that he was a surveyor, and drew the plan (pro duced) of the premises in which tiie murdered woman lived. It wras shown and explained to the jury. Man Chat, the husband of the mur dered woman, was next called. At noon a recess was taken.

Intelligence was received at New York December 2Gth at the Yacht Club, through private correspondence, that a challenge for the America cup is on its way over. It is said to come from Colo nel Jamieson, owner of the Irex, through either the Royal St. George or Royal Irish Yacht Club. The challenging yacht is to be of cutter build, between 85 and 90 feet long on the keel. The ten month's previous notice, which it is necessary to give, in order to compete for the cup, will be up by the end of this month, but it is likely that any chal lenge submitted during the early part of next month will be accepted by the club.

As the afternoon begins to lengthen on Sundays, four figures clad in long black gowns may be seen pacing to and fro along the entrance of the city hall. One Is tall and slim and greatly resembles James G. Blaine in features. Another is short and stout. The other two are of medium size. The tall one is Mr. Kim ball, the noted friend of the poor. One by one persons drop out of the pro cession across the park and stop. Soon 100 gather. The little man steps out, and, opening a Bible, reads a verse and then begins to talk. As his voice rolls over the park others come in to hear, stop a moment and pass on. Then the other two men in black gowns in succession speak with great earnestness. The core of the audience stays, the first half dozen rows remain intact; but the onter edge is a constantly shifting line, one dropping out, with a laugh, per haps, or a serious countenance, while an other steps in and takes his place. Then Mr. Kimball steps forward and, with a Bible in his left hand, pours out entreaty, warning, exhortation, argument. His voice strikes the gray front of the post office and eomes echoing back. It sounds far over in Park row, and people turn to see what is going on. It arrests the steps of persons hurrying along Broadway. Some glance over at the black gowns and hurry on. Others walk over and stand respectfully and listen. The speaker be comes more deeply interested, and strikes his hands together with a resounding slap. He grows excited, and catching his high hat by the brim, sweeps it from his head in a wide circle, and then replaces it. He talks with great earnestness, and the crowd listen as though they believed in his sincerity. Tlie services end. The black gowns silently disappear. The crowd melts away in the great city. If seed has been sown fruit will be gathered in tenement houses and mansions, in slums and in fashionable quarters of the town, for all have been rep resented in the crowd before the city hall. New York Sun. Criticism of 91. Pasteur. A' refreshing dose of common sense con cerning the hydrophobia bugbear is to be found in Dr. Spitzka's article in The Forum. All timid and imaginative people ought to read his conclusions. He states with careful coolness and accuracy the re sults of M. Pasteur's experiments. It is a record which to an unprejudiced reader would seem to present the French biolo gist in the light of a crazy quack rather than in that of a practical man of science. The end of Dr. Spitzka's paper is well worth quoting: "The moral management of persons bitten by suspicious dogs is a most important feature. A number of cases are on record in which, patients suf fering from the most agonizing symptoms of 'rabies' recovered cn hearing that the dog that bit them was alive and well. On eliminating the cases of spurious and improperly, designated rabies from the mortuary tables the number of real cases will be found so small that the entire subject of the prevention and treatment of rabies in man will seem an insignifi cant problem as compared with that re lating to the part borne by domestic ani mals in conveying the contagion of measles, diptheria and scarlet fever, the deaths from which diseases in any given day exceeded a hundredfold a whole year's mortality through rabies." New York Tribune. Girls In a Factory. I've been employing girls in my factory for six years, and I can emphatically say that I like them much better than men. They are employed in every department of the business, and it is rarely necessary to discharge any of them. I have never had to discharge a stenographer or type writer except fcr inability to read her own notes, and I've occasionally encoun tered one just graduated by a college who couldn't do this. In the factory the girls are discharged for only two reasons. Now and then one is found who is incor rigibly lazy, and she is dismissed. Again, some of them can't be cured of talking, and if they don't heed remonstrance they are paid and sent away. Gossiping is the greatest trouble that T, and I imagine all others wTho employ a large number of girls and women, meet in managing them. They will talk and nothing under the sun will prevent it, even though the rules p.gainst chattering on subjects other than those connected with the business stare them directly in the face. That is the principal fault I have found, and it leads sometimes to the discharge of some good workwoman; it never produces half the evil consequences that the bad habits of male workmen do. Globe-Democrat. A White Hawk. Albinos, whether bird, beast, or other creature, are very seldom seen. A bird totally different in color from that of its own species is a curiosity which one may chance to see once in a life time. An albino of any class of beings is always a novelty. A snow white owl of the com mon species was an object much soucrht after by the sportsmen of a near region a few winters ago. The rare bird, how ever, was never captured. A trapper of this locality captured a beautiful white specimen of mink a year or two ago. This writer has seen some nearly white ducks among the various classes of wild ducks, but of all the albinos observed the pret tiest was a white turtle dove, which re mained near us for several weeks during the summer of 1884. It was indeed a very rare sight. Quite recently another true specimen of this freak of nature Ave call albino was observed by the writer. It belonged to that order of hawks termed the hen harrier, and its uniform was of pale, whiteness. Alexandria (Mo.) Cor. Globe-Democrat. A Hint to the Barber. A suggestion has been made that bar bers put their razors in a weak solution of carbolic acid after shaving each customer and thus prevent the danger of infecting them with some dread disease, barber's itch, etc. This idea is an exceedingly good one, and ought to be followed. Let them rinse out their mugs and brushes which are in common use with the same solution. The expense is a mere nothing and the plan entails little or no extra labor. Boston Herald. The Tooting of Locomotives. A mechanical expert given to curious investigation estimates that the tooting of locomotives on the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad, in an ordinary day's run, involves a waste of steam re quiring the consumption of 280 pounds of coal to renew. He estimates the whis tling expenses of that particular railway at 15,000 a year. San Francisco Chronicle. On Lookout Mountain. .George Bancroft, the venerable histo rian, visited Lookout mountain the other day, and said it was the grandest view his eyes ever saw. In all his travels he had never seen any scene to exceed its sublime cxandeux. $S&frtiSfl!KM5. MAMMOTH SHIPMEfcT OF II AY AIfI GRAIN, Just received and for Sale at LOWEST MARKET PRICE.
