During his long service in these Islands, he has been connected with many of the principal religious and charitable institutions, and his ability, industry and integrity have been recognized and appreciated.

The benefits to be conferred on the coming generations of Spanish children, by an Institution that will teach the young women of Spain the best theory and practice of life, known to the Anglo-Saxons, cannot be meas ured in money. Above all, America owes a sentimental debt to Spain.- which cannot better be paid than by planting in Madrid a perpetual memo rial of the discovery made by Colum bus. . A TYPICAL AMKK1CAN. A RECLAIMED IDOL. T"ho discovery of a helpless, infirm and retired idol buried many feet under the soil, near Ewa, has produced a commotion among the idols who are now residing in the Bishop Museum, at the expense of .ne great Bishop charity. The monotony of their lives was suddenly broken when Prof. Brig ham, their beloved priest and friend, announces to them the recovery of an esteemed idol from a hole in the ground, "Gentlemen Idols and gods, I have the pleasure of announcing to you the discovery of one of your long lost brethren, and my expectation that he will become a useful member of your society. While the most of you have behaved like true gentlemen and responsible idols, since I -have had the honor to receive you and provide for your wants, in this beautiful Museum, which the irreverent call a 'Heathen Temple I have noticed that a few of you have been discontented and rebel lious, and have failed to appreciate the 'high mission which is your lot, and which this magnificent structure has been erected to aid you in fulfilling. In introducing to you this distinguish ed stranger, and assigning to him a permanent place in your ranks, I un dertake to guarantee his respectability and .his sacred pedigree. Any failure on your part to receive him as an As sociated Idol, will cause me to resort to the painful process of playing the hose on your venerable and consecrat ed forms." It ia an open secret that since many Idols of Oceanica have been placed in the Dishop Museum, Prof. Brigham has oot always respected or recognized their different ranks and idols of low pedigree have been placed on shelves which are higher than those upon which the most distinguished gods - - m . a. . . -were iocaie.a. mas unrortunate ar rangement has caused much irritation, and, during the last year, there was formed "The Amalgamated Order of Asociated Idols," which has finally se cured harmony among all classes of resident gods. The Executive Commit- tee, under the wise ; advice given to them by Mr. Joseph S. Emerson, as an impartial arbitrator, have finally com promised all claims, and "seated" the gods according to their several ranks. The native Hawaiian gods have the preference in .place, while the idols ' from the Insignificant, islands of the southern Pacific and New Zealand are regarded as guests. These idols represent different types of lower and higher heathenism, they are conservative in their theological ' 11. . i ...' vjiews, aunere to traaitions ana are conscious of the contemptuous remarks made about their personal beauty -by ino anconsiaerate visitors who gaze -upon them with curiosity. The cura Ar of th6 Museum must be congratu lated upon the success with which he has organized a happy family of in dependent gods. H. K. Thurber of New lork city, who died several weeks ago, was one of the remarkable men of America. In 1858, he established in that city a wholesale grocery house, which intro duced for the first time in tne Ameri can trade, the packing of groceries in an attractive form. In 1884, he retired from business with a fortune of $2,000.- 000 acquired entirely by honest toil and superb management. He then lost his head. Like many of the poor boys who had left the country towns, for ven tures in the Metropolis, he had, for the best part of his life, thought of noth ing but money making. Philanthropy interested him as a side issue, and he contributed freely to its needs. But the best part of his life had been spent in acquiring the habit of money mak ing, and when he -retired, he found himself in the deep canon' of this habit, and he could not rise above its banks. Any other life but that of a money maker was strange and unnatural to him. So he soon plunged into new en terprises, the nature and conditions of which he did not understand, although he sincerely believed that he did. These affairs gave an outlet to his great energy. His shrewd lriends could not hold him within bounds. 1 1 is wife, to whom'he had opened his purse, freely for every philanthropic cause, could not restrain him. He had fixed his habits and could not change them. He also lived in and breathed the spe culative air of tne times. He invested in a great soap enterprise, a large boot and shoe manufactory, in steamships. in western ranches and mines, and in 1891, he "went under," owing large sums of money. Instead of giving up the game, he started in his C3th year of age for the West, and undertook to get out of his scattered properties, by careful work, sufficient money to pay his creditors. He worked against an ebbing tide, but he pulled a lusty oar. with the enthusiasm of youth. .He contracted pneumonia in Kansas and died a few days ago. It was said by one of his friends who had seen him when he was the genial and ambitious King of the grocery world, that it was pathetic to watch the enthusiasm of this broken merchant, who had once been the leader of the New York Cham ber of Commerce, as he dashed over the . western prairies, in his old age. following up his cattle interf-sta out of which he expectc-d to pay many of ' his debts. He was a staunch Republican. No man gave more freely to the c.iuk ! But he denounced his own party in j a memorable article in Belford's Mtiri-1 zine in 1SS9, because it had permitted the American foreign marine service to become nearly extinct, and th? Star and Stripes to become as rare la for eign ports as the Hag of Peru. He de nounced the protection of the manufac turing interest alone. He claimed that it was unjust and "un-American" to abandon the Flag on ihe high .ms. But the party did nothing.

The bitter feud which has so Ion existed between the Hawaiian idols. and the missionary party has now sub stantially ended, 'me idols concede, alter seventy years of controversy that for 'the accident of their general overthrow and the breaking up of their sacred heiaus, or temples, in 1819, the drunken sailors and not tne mis sionaries were mainly responsible. Tho President of the Amalgamated Order of Associated Idols remarked in fiis annual address; "There is nothing mean about us. We give the mission aries credit for making a better state of things, although they prevented our restoration, "and made us humili atea oacK-numDers. we wui even shake hands with Dr. B." It is to be presumed that this restor ed idol will be placed in the Museum, with appropriate ceremonies.
