How Kalakaua Plays the Monarch
A gentleman who has recently
returned from the Sandwich Is
lands states that intense dissatis
faction exists there, by reason of
the reckless and extravagant man
agement of public affairs. lying
Kalakaua:s head has been com
pletely turned by the moderate
honors that were paid him during
his European tour, and his imme
diate advisers encourage his hallu
cinations. He has gone daft. lie
sneers at the free government of
the United States, and expresses
contempt for any but royal and
imperial governments. His pomp
ous egotism is perfectly amusing.
He pampers his little "army" of a
few hundred men, which a dozen
Arizona cowboys could chase all
over the hills of Hawaii, and talks
about fortifying his islands and
bidding defiance to the world. All
this would be harmless enough if
did not cost so much, money. He
is running his petty government
head over heels in debt, and as
the natives pay literally no taxes,
the burden of course falls on for
eigners and Caucasian subjects.
This point seems to have .been
well considered. His majesty
seems to think "the more debts
the merrier,'" and all goes like a
funeral bell. The appropriations at
the last legislative assemby, con
sidering the country's resources,
were simply enormous. Money
was voted for everything and ev
erybody, and. when no money
could be provided out of regular
revenues, large national loans met
the deficiency. His majesty's pri
vate purse was increased from
15,000 to 30,000 per annum, or
$1 per head for every man, woman
and child in the country. At the
same rate the president of the
United States would enjoy a sal
ary of 52,000,000. The salary of
her majesty the queen was increased
from 10,000 to 10,000. For
merly the king had to support the
queen out of his own depleted
pocketbook. The allowance of
the heir apparent was also in
creased to $1G,000, and the salary
of her royal highnets princess
Likelide was increased from S,000
to 12,000. The lord chamber
lain's salary was changed from
5,000 to 7,000, and the appro
priation for foreign ministers was
raised to 25,000. The king was
also allowed 15,000 with which
to meet a little bill he had omitted
to pa over in Europe. "While lie
was in Austria he had been much
pleased with some cannon he saw
there, and ordered them forwarded
to Honolulu, supposing that they
had been presented to him, since
he had received a letter concerning
them from the emperor of Austria
It transpired, however that the
plebeian manufacturer could not
make guns for fun and give them
away to mighty monarchs, and
hence had transmitted a bill. This
placed His Majesty in an
unpleasant predicament, quite in
contrast to his sable epidermis,
and the bill was accordingly paid.
His Majesty is getting to be fond
of guns and warriors, and was
allowed 40,000 for a royal guard,
33,000 for flags, salutes and
bands, 20,000 for arms and ac
couterments, 5,000 for a drill
shed and 10,000 to give away to
volunteer companies. Also, an
"armed force contingent fund" of
$ 60,000, to be expended by the
king, was also allowed, as "well as
175,000 for a police force and
12,000 for "assistant guards."
Three sheriffs getting 15,000. All
this makes tax payers swear, and
think how much more economic
ally a second-class American
country is run. The king's minis-"
ters come in for a salary of 12,-
; 000, and there are eight or ten
j governors on the island to pay.
The postmaster-general gets 8,-
! 000 to do what a good mule and a
border ruffian could easily accom
plish on 1,000 per annum. The
minister of finance was allowed
12,000; the auditor-general 10,
000; the attorney-general 12,000;
the inspector-general S,000, and a
host of minor officials with salaries
ranging from 3,000 to SS,000.
The minister of foreign affairs
gets 12,000, and is allowed 9,
000 for a iecretary ayd office
expenses. The princess Kaiulaui
comes in for 5,000, and in addit
ion to the king's salary of 50,000,
10,000 to his queen, and 15,000
for his cannons, he was allowed
20,000 for his household expenses;
7,000 for his chamberlain and
secretary, and 22,500 for his "tour
around the world." Then the
chief justice and chancellor came
in for 12,000; two associate jus
tices for 10,000 each; the clerk of
the supreme court G,000; and
about twenty judges got all the
way from 1,200 to 4,000. One
item for the "purchase of decora
tions" was 4,000. The poor, be
nighted Hawaiians believe that
when his sublime high mightiness
sits down upon that hundred-thousand-dollar
throne, and gets under
that two hundred-thousand-dollar
crown, and takes a long breath in
palace, the whole world will shake,
and that tidal waves will dance all
over the Pacific ocean. At the
lowest estimate, the expenses of
the government are double the
revenues, and a loan of 2,000,000
had to be floated by the last leg
islature in order to meet the enor
mous expenses, lhis mouey does
not come out of King Kalakau's
calico-colored subjects, but out of
the business men of Honolulu, and
hence the wails, though low, are
deep and grievous.
The Blue and the Gray.
Coming up and waiting for my
turn to drink, I noticed a sunburnt,
gray-haired man leauing over his
rude gate, watching the troops.
My ej'c was attracted by a new
made grave among a clump of rose
bushes just inside the fence.
"Wondering at the sight, I ventured
to ask the reason for its being
"Whoso grave is that?" said I,
pointing to' the mound of fresh
"A reb's," he replied laconic
ally; "one that got killed in the
fight the horsemen had here to
day." "Indeed! And so j'ou buried
"Yes, buried him myself. They
left him hying in the road out thar,
just as he fell, and I could do no
less, you know."
"Of course. But why did you
make your rose garden a grave
""Wa-al, it was the wimmen that
wanted it so. STer see, stranger,"
and the old man's voice trembled
and grew husky, "yer see, I had a
boy once. He went out with the
Pennsylvania reserves and fou't
along with McClellan, down thar
among the Chickaoming swamps.
And one day a letter come. It
was writ by a woman, and she told
us how a battle had bin fou't near
her house while she and another
woman lay hid all day in the
cellar. "When the battle was over
them wimmen came out and found
our Johnny thar, his hair all
bloody and tangled in the grass.
So the' digged a grave in the
soft earth of their gardin and
buried my boy right amo ngst
their flowers, for the sake of the
mother who would never see
him agin. So when I saw that
poor reb a-layin' out thar, all dead
and bloody in the dust of the mad,
I sed I'd bury him. And the gals,
they sed, "Yes, father, bury him
among the rose trees." That's
why I did it, stranger."
Then the poor old father's voice
was choked by a smothered sob,
and a faint cry behind him be
trayed the presence of a sister of
the dead hero Iving in his garden
grave near Richmond. Bullet and
In this state we have a grade of
wheat that is known as goose
wheat. It is so called because
the wheat grown in the state all
came from two or three grains
taken from the crop of a wild
goose. The wheat has a very
hard, coarse shell, and makes a pe
culiar grade of flour. No wheat
like it is known in this country.
The people of Oregon have won
dered from whence it came. The
wonder is explained. From sam
ples of foreign wheat at the agri
cultural department the exact du
plicate of the goose wheat of Ore
gon has been found. This wheat
comes from a small province in
Spain, the only place where it has
been grown. From that cne may
safely surmise that the wild goose
flies around tho world in pretty
fast time. If we remember aright,
it was a farmer who lived in Ma
rion county, about opposite where
Wheatland now is, and the goose
was killed in the winter of 1S50.
