The death of Dr. Hyde was not un
expected. He has been a sufferer for j
several years.' 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. His
unselfishness and earnest desire to dis
charge the duties and obligations he
ihad assumed, placed upon him great
responsibilities, which he cheerfully
accepted as his life work. It may be
justly said of him, "Well done, goovi
and faithful servant."

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

and, during the last year, there was
formed "The Amalgamated Order of

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

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
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.

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.
Mr. Thurber will stand as a typo of
an American of the Speculative a so n
age of vast commercial success, and
of infinite personal suflering and ilia- j nd Uniruor.

In London to buy one of the three
eggs of the great auk, which were for
merly in the collection of Count Ilaoul
de Berace. There are about seventy
eggs of thl3 great extinct bird now in
existence, and at recent auction sales
they have brought from $300 to $750.
The eggs are rather smaller than
those of the ostrich. Living specimens
of the great auk were found off the

people now living, but tney yielded to

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

of things, although they prevented
our restoration, "and made us humili
