Tho Samoa Times has an torial article in its issue on 20th November, calling upon King to put in force both Chinese exclusion act and also cdi the the the the another part of the same paper 'translation. Notice is Hereby Given. The law proclaimed last year, con cerning the Chinese, is still in operation, and will be enforced. I have now added to that law the fol lowing regulations concerning Hawai ian: It is strictly forbidden for any Ha waiian to return again to Samoa, or for any Hawaiian lately arrived to remain. Thev must return to their proper country within this present year ordinance prohibiting the admis sion of natives of the Hawaiian Islands into Samoa. In January last, says the Times, tho King issued a proclamation notifying all recently-arrived na tives of the Hawaiian Islands to Icavo Samoa during tho present year. This period is now drawing to a close and those Hawaiians and Chinese, or that portion of them to whom tho ordinance applies, ap parently have no intention of com plying with the' King's proclama tion, several of them having taken From a letter written by Mrs. L. M. Cole to her daughter, and dated Kiti, ponape, Caroline Islands, Sep tember 18, 1890: -The Spanish and the Ponapeans are still fighting.

An epidemic of scarlatina has broken out in Brisbane, and the disease, which is of a very dangerous type, is spreading rapidly. Mr. T. Archer, Agent-General for Queensland, has resigned, and Sir J. F. Garnck, who formerly held the position, ha.-! been appointed in his stead. The Inter-colonial Eight-oared Kace, November 30th, vas won by the Vic torian crew. Queensland was second, and New South Wales third. The Queensland crew had the race well in hand when, unfortunately, they broke an oar when withm mxj yards ot the winning post, which resulted in throw ing tliem back. The New South W ales crew were nowhere. A new licensing bill has been intro duced into the New South Wales Legis lative Assembly by Sir Henry Parkes. It provides for the granting of licenses to publicans for a period of three vears. This lengthened duration of the license win De regarded as sumcient compensa tion to the publican for any loss he may suffer thereafter. The measure also sets forth that a two-third majority of house holders can prevent the renewal ot a license, and a simple majority can re duce the number of licenses in any dis trict by a certain number, or determine whether or not new licenses are to be granted.

Boys' entertainment, last Friday evening, was a grand success. The Hall was well filled, and the pro- ins that day. Yesterday they were going to destroy another place, but found a great many people there ready for them. We have not heard all Darticulars yet. There are three men-of-war here and two steamers that brought provision for the troops. The Morning Star sailed a woek ago to-day for Kusaie, taking Miss Fletcher and twelve cirls. We had to leave Oua on account of the fiehtins. We went on board the Star and stayed a week and were all optpds amounted to over $80 .

Ponape girls go, bo Miss Palmer and inrWd. their anticipations were greatly t & r . Samoan wives, evidently intending surpassed, if we may so judge from the to settle permanently in the country. Tho act for tho exclusion of both Chinese and Hawaiians was framed with tho object of preventing lep rosy from spreading in Samoa, but tho Times states it has been allow ed to stand over for tho last two years, and in that timo persons of both tho forbidden nationalities took advantage of tho unsettled state of Samoa to cvado tho provi sions of tho Exclusion Act, aud " probably " Hawaiians having tho germs of tho disease before leaving their own country, brought tho dis ease with them. Tho writer in the Times, in the article now under notice does not stato to w hat extent the disease has shown itself in Samoa but says, " tho discaso is now here, and is not solely confined to the Chinese and Hawaiians who brought it but several Samoans have become its victims." He accepts however the alleged assertion of persons who arc well acquainted with the native of Hawaii," that ono out of fifty is tainted with the disease. Another article in the same paper under the heading "Another Case of Leprosy in Apia" reports that a Hawaiian was known to be lying in a houso on the eastern side of tho Vassegagolliver in an advanced stage of Asiatic leprosy. The American Consul being notified sent an official and a nativo chief magistrate to the spot. A doctor (Dr. Funk) was sent for and from the symptoms described there can be no doubt that it is a very bad case of tuberculous leprosy. Two other cases were reported but the Times has not yet found out whether there is any truth in the report, and a woman living near where tho leper is lying is said to be in almost as bad a condition. Under these circumstances it is not to be wondered at that the Times cries aloud for the execution of the provisions of the Exclusion Act and says, 44 the Hawaiians and Chineso coming under the provi sions of the act " that is, who were 44 recently arrived" two years ago, must bo sent out of the country at any cost. As to expeuses the I stayed with them. We are living with rsanape at Hiti. Mr. Ltana is here too. It is quite quiet and safe here. The Star will be back next week to see us, and if our lives are in danger we will leave, but it is quite safe here at Kiti. None of these people have joined them so do not be anxious about us." frequent and vigorous applause. More than usual interest, perhaps, was aroused from the fact that many of those who took part were very young, and yet did remarkably well ; all who took part, in fact, did so well that it would be difficult to make special mention of any. The opening exercise was a piano solo, well played by Miss May Damon. This was followed by a recitation, 44 Catching the Cat," so aptly spoken by Miss Ada Whitney as to elicit great applause. Little Ruth Bowen then captivated the audience with a simple, sweet piano solo. A recitation, 44 No Wine at My Wedding," by Miss Evelyn Dexter, and a vocal solo" by Mr. II. A. Huff, were well rendered. Perhaps the two events of the evening were those in which Mr. H. W. Peck and Miss Le Count respec tively figured. The former held the audience in deep silence as he appro priately delivered 44 The Battle Flag at Shenandoah," and then in response to an encore he afforded great amusement with a comical take-off on the sermon of a hard-shelled Baptist. Miss Lee Count played beautifully on the man dolin, accompanied on the piano by Miss McGrew. The audience would have more, but instead of responding in a musical way, Miss Le Count gave a weird recitation specially adapted to in terest the younger people, and with such artistic skill was it rendered that the ninlianro unnlil nnt. rost s.ltisfifid until Miss Le Count had recited yet another StOCkllOlller'S Meeting. frontier life.
