A'EMNSCENCES OF HONOLULU.
Tlic boldest ami most successful rolilxrrlcs
ever .iccomplislicil in I lonolulu, occurred on
the nlfilit of Sunday, March IS, 1S58. The
community was statllctl when it was known
eatly on Monday morning that the Custom
I louse, the coral building on Queen street now
occupied as n ticc mill, had lieen entered
during the night and ten thousand dollars in
coin stolen therefrom. The facts In the rase,
which were soon on cscry laxly' lips, were
these! Mr. Warren Goodale, the Collector
Central of Customs, who is now a sugar plant
er in the district of Kau, Hawaii) kept a smal
iron safe in his office, in the second story of
the building, in which it was his custom to tem
porarily keep the money received for duties
and other custom receipts, until such time as
they were removed to the vault on the ground
floor, or to the Government Treasury. The
key of this safe the Collector always carried in
his ioekct. On Saturday afternoon, the Cus
tom House was closed at the usual hour. On
Sunday morning, Mr. Goodale, who Used in the
valley, changed his clothes, hanging the pants
containing the key of the safe, with other cloth
ing, in his bedroom. The family attended
church during the day and the esening sets ice
as well, up to scscn o'clock nothing appearing
to hate been disturled. llul sometime after
returning from church in the ctening, upon go
ing into the liedroom, which opened upon the
tcranda, Mr. Goodale discotired that several
articles of clothing were gone from the hooks
upon which they had been hung. Going out
upon the veranda, a ockct handkerchief and
a test were found, and on the grass in front
were two coats and two pairs of pants. One
pair of these pants had contained the key of the
office safe, which was now missing. Mr.
Goodale Immediately hastened into town and
proceeded to the Police Station, whence, ac
companicd by the Sheriff, 11. S. Swinton and
several xticemcn, the patty proceeded to the
Custom House. They first went round the
building, seeing nothing to create suspicion.
There was always an armed sentry stationed in
front of the building'and he being (ucslioncd,
declared that he had seen -or heard nothing
unusual during the evening. Mr. Goodale had
a key to the front door, which being opened
the party proceeded up stairs, where every
thing was found as usual until the Collector's
room was reached, on the mauka side of the
building, when it became at once apparent
that thieves had txren there. The safe was
open, and the bags w liich had contained the
coin, mostly in twenty-dollar gold pieces, hail
been emptied and lay scattered about the floor.
Matches lay alwut, but there were no traces of
a candle. The iron shutter of the office
window was unfastened, and near by lay a
large hammer, such as coopers use, and a ball
of twine. The twine was unwound from the
lull to a sufficient length as was afterwards
ascertained to reach from the window to the
ground outside. A cargo of coal was piled
against the northern end of the building, near
ly to a level with the second-story end door
and window, and over this coat a person could
easily descend to the ground. This iron door
and window were unfastened, as was the ma
uka door on the ground floor, thus affording
two means of exit to the burglars. The night
was a fine one, the nearly full moon being un
clouded, a fact that showed tth the boldness
of the thieves and the usclcssness of the sentry.
The theory most generally accepted by our
citizens was that the robbery was the work of
experienced hands; that one of the thieves had
been secreted in the building on Saturday,
while another had procured the key of the safe
on Sunday night. This was received by the
one inside by means of the twine, through the
window, while the other kept watch outside.
This was the first robbery of any amount which
had ever occurred here, and caused a sense of
alarm and insecurity among our merchants.
The fact that il happened in a got eminent
building, guarded by a detachment of the Ha
waiian army, was held as proof that private
parties could expect but little in the way of
protection from government. Neither the
thieves nor the money was ever seen or heard of
after, though a reward of a thousand dollars
was offered by the Marshal, largely supple
mented by the citirens. Suspicion vaguely
pointed to scteral persons in town, but nothing
tangible cter came to light, and' the Custom
House robbery of 1858, which created such a
sensation in the community at the time and
was the cause of public meetings and the ap
pointment of committees, remains to-day as
much of a mystery as it was twenty-four tears
Early in April, 185S, a two-story coral stone
itorc, that for thirty-one tears had stood nearly
on the site of what Is now the corner of Queen
and Kaahumanu streets, was demolished to
make room for the erection by k. C. J anion of
the fire-proof block now occupied by Hon. A.
S. Clcghorn. The old building had been for
many scats a prominent object, a landmark,
being the first large slrcsl store ever put up in
the town. Its builders were Messrs Andrew
Auld and James Kuddack, who at that date
(1S71) were the principal house-carpenters and
builders in the place. Mr, Charlton, the
Vritlth Consul, owned the land, and proposed
to butld the walls of aJele unburnt brick,
dried in the sun but in the course of erection
a heavy rain storm caused the mud walls to
tumble, and then it was concluded to build
them of coral stone. The coral blocks, hewn
by natives from the revf, cost in those di)S
about 3S cents each. After completion, the
building was used by Mr. Charlton as a Consu
lar office and store until 1837, in which jiar he
was succeeded by Mr, Henry Skinner. Af
ter Skinner, Mr I-eidesJortl, one of the
Itin Francisco, pioneer merchants, and for
whom one of the streets of that city was named,
occupied the building for a time, while dis
posing of a cargo of merchandise. Then Mr,
John Kobson was its tenant, a representative
John Mull merchant. He was short and stout,
with a rubicund countenance, a man of very
few words and fewer associates, very precise In
drcM and maimer, and gate one the impression
tail ac considered himself to be immeasurably
above his surroundings. After Kobson relumed
(0 England, presumably a rich man, V, V,
Tboaspteo, occupied the upper story of the
kmUiiog as an auction room, for ,ulte a
period, during which hc'.took A. II. Howe asa
partner. The lower tart was occupied by
C. A, Williams A. Co., a New Indon whale-
ships agency, and last of all, by Allen & Co.
(W. I'. Si S. C.) A notable circumstance was
the fact that Mr. Auld, whoatsitteil In putting
up the old building in 1817, should also lie
cmplotcd thirty-one years afterwards lo pull it
During the) cars 1S55 to tSjS, burglaries
and petty larcenies were of frerpient occurrence
in Honolulu, to an extent not dreamed oftn
these days. In view of the fact that the popu
lation was then very much under that of the
present time, the prevalence of these crimes
may lc accounted for in several ways. Sum
mary justice by vigilance committees had
driven many of the (ramp class from Califor
nia; communication lwtwcen the Islands and
Australia was frequent, and ex-conticts found
their way here; and there wasalwaysasprink
ling of deserters from the whale-ships who
managed lo elude capture, lies ides there were
lots ofctty thieves among the discharged
Chinese coolies. I icmemlwr that for several
months In 1858, on an average two burglaries
a week were rqsorteil, and in the large majori
ty of cases no arrests were ever made.
The "Spring season " of 1858 was an un
usually brisk one. Ten whaling vessels, large
and small, owned and fitted here, were cnl to
the Northern whaling grounds. One hundred
and thirty-one foreign whale shis recruited at
the Islands, en route for the North. Some
14,000 barrels of oil were transhipped here for
The sugar planting business was also con
sidered to lc decidedly "looking up" in this
year. The figures however, will look extreme
ly small alongside those of to-day. The csti-
mated crop of sugar alwut which our planters
bragged no little in 1858, was about 1,000
tons from Hawaii, 30010ns; Kauai, 40010ns;
Maui, 300 tons.
During the nronthofMay, the late C. II.
Lowers, subsequently of the firm of Lowers &
Dickson, founders of the present house of
Lowers ,v Cooke, creeled an icc-housc"
the wharf, foot of Nuuanu street, almut on the
spot now occupied by A. F. Cooke's stone
warehouse. The ice-house was built ol wood,
double-sided, the space between the sides be
ing filled with charcoal, ns a non-conductor of
heat. The ice was to be brought from Uoston,
and the first shipment of 400 tons was received
per ship Mountain Wave, on the 14th of the
following October. Of course, every one that
could afford it went in for the novel luxury,
which was retailed at 25 cents per pound. Hut
after a time, and the receipt of several large
shipments, I judge that it was found to be a
losing business, from the fact that it was dis
continued. In the earlier days of Honolulu history, we
residents were not a little addicted to the per
titration of practical jokes for the reason,
probably, that, the demands of business affairs
were not so exacting as to occupy all their
time. Among other good sized jokes was the
establishment in this city, in 1858, of a branch
of so-called "Ancient and Honorable Order of
E Clampsus Vitus," of which one E.J.Smith
was the "M. V. D. G. E. C. V." It was
really a huge sell, and intended at once to sati
rize secret orders and to afford, in the initia
tion of neophitcs, unbounded fun lo the lovers
of a practical joke. I think there are yet one
or two residents here who may indulge a smile
at this " Reminiscence. " it. L. s.
The February number of the Supir Cane
is at hand, and contains twelve articles on
topics of immediate or indirect interest to
sugar planters and sugar dealers. The Eng
lish, American and German sugar markets are
considered; nnd the most strongly marked
features of the industry during lSS2, both in
regard to its agricultural and its commercial
importance, are clearly pointed out.
The Overland lot March is delicately litera
ry, mildly historical and hesitatingly scientific.
Milllccnt Shinn has some pretty verses en
titled "When My Ship Comes In." Her
brother Charles writes of Oxford in 149S.
F. W. Morse writes of "The Winged Phyllox
era in California," and treats it entertaining
ly, in the spirit of the facts made-known by
the latest research of French, Australian and
California!! scientists. The editorials are, as
usual, worth reading; the book reviews, as
usual, more like the necessarily unsatisfactory
"notices" of newspa)ers than the carefully
considered critical study of the best Eastern
magazines. Among the contributors are Pro
fessor Martin Kellogg, Josephine Clifford
F. F, Victor, and several others less known.
A half length profile portrait of GamK-tta is
the frontispiece for the March Century, In
the brief semi-historical biography of the dead
leader, which occupies fifteen entertaining
pages, is a portrait of Gambctta's father. The
serials by Mrs. llurnctt and Mr. I low ells arc
continued, and that by Mary Hallock Foote is
concluded. The number contains a fragment
ary poem by Ilryant, written in memory of his
wife and hitherto unpublished. It makes an
interesting addition to the six or seven other
poems known to hate been written by him in
her honor, "The End of Foreign Dominion
in Louisiana" is an interestingly instructive
article by George W. Cable, tracing the chain
of circumstances which led through the six
changes of rule, olitical and commercial,
from 1712 to 1S0J, culminating in the transfer
from France to the United States in the year
last named. John Ilurroughs writes of "Signs
and Seasons" with his usual charming insight
into Nature's moods and manners. Leonard
llacon, Edward Eggleston, Julia C. Dorr, II.
1 1. and that truest of Californlan poets, Ina 1),
Coolbrilh, arc among the contributors.
St, Nieholai has done so much for the
young generation of American leaders that one
U alwats at a loss for words fitly lo character
ire its ercnnial charm. If ,V. Niehetat had
been merely so pood as it Is without causing
an Improvement in older children's maguincs,
all the boys and girls in the land would hate
less to thank it lor than they have. As it Is,
St, NieMat has made H'iJe Await quite as
good, in a different way, through sheer force
of example; just as the Century, while it
was SenbntrU Monthly, brought up the litera
ry and artistic standard of jrfer'i. It Is now
uilncutl to determine which of the four maga
zines is the best of its kinds in current periodi
cal literature, A comparision Utween the
March numbers of II iJe Auuie and St,
NieAohi would probably result in a tcrdlct
from the very young folks for the former, and
from older boys and girls for the latter.
There Is an article in the Vofular Seiesee
Monthly for March, copied from the Vwft"
tioiur, which ought to be useful to house
wives, whether it is or is not tog abstruse for
general reading. It is entitled "A Few
Words about Ealing," and is cast in the form
of a dialogue between a clergsinan and a phy
sician. "Sewage at the Seaside" is another
article of great general value, and of stK-cial
interest to those who lute at heart the sanitary
well-being of Honolulu. The number contains
fourteen pajwrt, exclusive ol the regular de
partments. The double number of the nltrnatioxjl
AVtiVte for February-March contains ten
papers of which the first is "Protection to
American Art," by Thomas Donaldson; and
the most sensational is "The Divine Right of
Divorce," by Edward Qulncy, Jr.
