AMOSKEAG YARDS FOR $1. GINGHAMS 14 MARCH ist. Judge Austin, of Hilo, relates some interesting experiences of his own while secretary to Princees Ruth, in 1854. At that time she w - was the governess of Hawaii. He had been appointed secretary, but with orders from Kamehameha III that Keelikolani should never interfere with his work. In that year there was a large gathering of the natives at Kailua, commanded to assemble by her in order to ex plain to the people the tax laws, and to enforce the payment of taxes. A large lanai was provided in which the meeting took place, and she proposed to address them. It was the unwritten law that the very old and infirm, all cripples and incurables, should be exempt from taxation. The natives were unwilling to pay taxes, so they prepared for the meeting. Many who were young men, and in the best physical condition, came in, appearing to be doubled up with disease. MaDy used staffs, and walked with trembling steps. Some walked slowly, coughing at every step. Some held up a leg, and appeared to be cripples. One enterprising native appearea on a companTo forget the Date opened it appeared like a hospital without a well person in it, and it numbered several hundred. Ihe Princess made a brief address, and was followed by her secretary, Judge Austin, who told them that all preeent would have to pay taxes, as there was nothing the matter with them. At once there was a commotion. The men who were doubled up straightened themselves out. The coughing stopped. The men with "game" legs moved about quickly. The man who came in on a stretcher got up and made a speech to the crowd, showing that he had a very poor opinion of the govern ment. The staffs were flung aside. In a few moments a fine stalwart body of men TTre seen taking the 3 3 . ujuuiuttia ruau uuu moving cu with perfect ea, and the lanai was lettered with the debris of the materials they had used in mak ing themselves apparent cripples and infirm. Another time, in Hilo, the Prin ceBS with a retinue, while on the street, met a native on a fine mule. The Princess wanted it. She at once sent for her secretary and in a very imperious manner in quired, "Have you any money in the treasury ?" "Yes, plen ty of it," he replied. "Bring me $40," she said. "I will bring you nothing," he replied. "It don't belong to you." She looked at him scornfully and turned away. The next day he called to see her and she was extremely gracious, as she feared he would report the transaction to the King.

An enthusiastic meeting of the Moanalua Hawaiian Annexation Club was held last night. The attendance was the largest ever seen there. A large number of women and children came to the hall to witness the proceedings. The meeting was opened with a rousing song, followed by prayer. Speeches were made by the several officers, and, altogether, the gathering was significant. After some discussion it was con cluded to adopt the American League Constitution and By-Laws as a whole. A committee of five was ap pointed to procure a copy and make report at the meeting to be held next Tuesday night. There has been a decided change in political sentiment at Moanalua, the natives now being generally in favor of annexation and willing to lend united support to the Government. A branch annexation club will be formed at Kahana, Koolauloa, next Tuesday. Manager G. C. Hewitt of Naa lehu plantation left on the W. G. Hall yesterday with his wife and child.
