I cnn'l help thinking it wis rather haul lines
on mc lo fall in for such a task after a hard
week's work. You sec I lml load as city
editor while the c c, was absent. He'd gone
off to Waiulita with John Spencer nnd Paul
Paly and J. CI. Neumann to look Into the pos

for the Uilllnghnii plow, In inquire officially
into the recent irregular conduct of the trade

of course, I had lo read all the other reporters'

who writes legibly nnd uses good Knglish arc
what mj irreverent friend I tatty Dam, form

I was tired out with a hard week's woik nnd
when lint scoundrelly rciorter-of.p.work had
the impudence to ask 111c lo let him go. I lost
my icrnper ; and, after I had dismissed him
from the office, I wasat my wit's ends. liul I
remembcted tint the virtue-and-morality cdi
tor had offered to help mc out if I got into a
tight liox, So I went to his den nnd found
him deep in the study of nn Advertiser edi
torial. Roth eyes were shut, his mouth was
ajar and the throes of thought were indicated
by imrticulatc sounds that resembled a young
bind boy wrestling for the first timc.wilh the
Iroinlxine. I asked him to go in my place
and he said he would. The I.OCAI. Man.
And it came to pass that the rabis and the
lady rabis who taught in the school called
Oahu College set their faces towards one great
desire. And they said unto themselves : "Lo
it becomcth well this place that its daughters
of melody lift up their voices to the music of
the harpsichord even to one builded by that
mighty man of noise, Steinway. Tor, behold,
all lesser builders arc known under the name
ofSekkond llcsle. So the rabis considered
well among themselves and the lady rabis and
their friends (who also were for the most part
ladies) lifted up their voices and spread the
warning abroad that their should be given a
feast of the sort called by the gentiles "a
garden party " at the house of the husbandman
whose surname is Dillingham, on the Sabbath
day of the week now past, called by the gen
tiles Saturday. And a great multitude of
ladies lifted up their voices and exceeding
great was the sound thereof. So that it pene
trated to the innermost recesses of the shops of
the money changers and the inns of the pub
licans and the chambers of the scribes. And
the ladies who, in the olden time were called
women did bid lo the feast many who gave
fair promises ; and high were the hopes uf the
ladies )e.i, they were very high.

Last SaturJny morning I returned from a
lying trip to Maui, and the first man I met on
the wharf was the virtue-and-morality editor.
Alter the usual greeting, the usual common
places, and the usual "news," he said lie
would be very much obliged if I'd take a con
tract oil his hands. He told me what the con
tract was and I jumped at the chance. I didn't
go out to the grounds until 3 p. m. At that
hour the green lawn was dotted with visitors;
in gatb, from the tiny dresse of infancy to the
ample folds of inatronhooj in ace from G;u,ir
days to eighty years. Certainly Honolulu lias
no finer law n than Woodlaw n. Surely that lawn
nevtr was more charmingly congregated. The
arrangements for entertainment were, generally
speaking, good, A severe looking yet kindly
cycii i-erelirus guarded the outer gate and
adult visitors paid a shilling, two bits, twenty-
live cents, or a quarter according to age and
rank. They paid rather more to net out.
Ccubrus tried to refuse to take pay from me.
lie said he Itadotderslo "pass the press man."
Hut as some one else had already paid for me,
I was obliged to put tint largess down lo loss.
You sec they thought I was llie gush reporter.
I wish I were. I lie mikal lawn was devoted
lo the athletic Siorts cjiicfiy , at llie northwest
coiner of il being 11 ".sylvan liowcr" I be
lieve that is the exact languige n which Ke
bckah a mighty p;etty Ueliekah sold very
good lemonade at a dime the glasi. Across
(he driveway, other ladirs sold ice cream In
and from an open booth. Mauka the ice
cream luxilh, the band was playing, visilots
came and went, the games proceeded, the
merriment waxed and waned and waxed and
waned ngiini and presently 'twas five
o'clock. And then my medical friend and I
went Into a Iwolh still further mauka
and had dinner. And such a vlinnerl
Tluy called it a New Kngland dinner ;
il was good tnough to be Cabfurntan 1
it was almost good enough lobe Hawaiim.
A nici little gill served 1110 wild beans and
blown bread and pumpkin pie and coffee. 1

shotlly iheieaftcr the stars came out by two
and lours and eights and thirty-twos and Imn
died and thousands and tens of thousands.
And from building, ami trees and the tall ll.ig
siau gamiy lines ol paper lanleins hung, that
shone with dim, harmonious brilliance In the
tranquil air. And umn the makai playground
the nimbi football sped on its discouraging
pathway, and might have continued an hour
longer but for an unfortunate combination of
stumble nnd tumble, which resulted in the
breaking of a football playn's leg. If nature
had planned the night for the gentle ("eguilc

rancesi. TllF. KrpORTFP. OF THE I'lCTHRESQUF.
As usual it remiins for me lo gilhcr up Ihe
fragments. One of the two unfortunate occur
rences aliovc mentioned was ihe accident al
luded tn by the picvious writer, In which Mr.
Jusph Cow en, a plumber, residing at Mrs.
I toll's Innrdlng house, on the corner of Alakca
nn'd King, hid a smill outside bone broken
near his left ankle. Doctor X. II. Kmcrson,
who was nn the grounds, Icmtiorarily set lite
bioken Ixinc, and the sufferer was taken to Ihc
Queen's Hospital, where he Is now rapidly re
covering. The other " unfortunating " was a
misunderstanding by which the Ixivs nf the
Hawaiian bind lost their suppei. They had
given their services gratuitously, and (heir
playing had been fully appreciated by many
hearers of their usual Satunl.iy nfternoon con
certs, and by mmy who are seldom able lo at
tend those concerts. Mr. V. It. Castle had
the r entertainment in charge nnd planned to
give them the most royal spread nt Ihc com
mand of the refreshment committee, Hut Mr.
Cnstle was, unaioidably, called away; and his
pitting injunctions to "sec that the boys had
Ihe best supper to be had on Ihc grounds"
were not carried out. Mr. llcrger failed to
make it understood that (he band was obliged
lo lease at 7 p.m., and continued playing until
within a few minutes of the starling
hour. The tables In the tents were then
occupied by others and il would
have been impossible lo serve Ihc
musicians promptly there. When Mr.
lltrger did pliy the last piece nnd bring his
1k))s forward, Ihe offer was made to serve them
on the grounds. This offei was misinterpret
ed and the offer declined upon the plea of the
lateness of Ihc hour. Mr. llcrger has since
been made to understand cxacll) how the af
fair came alxiut, and no hard feeling now ex
ists. Tor the nonce, however, the happening
threw a damper upon the merriment, that
only the infectious jovousness of the delightful
evening atmosphere was nble to dispel. The
sum netted for Ihe benefit of Ihc piano was
$375- Some pleasant folks would have been
present who remained away because ol the
death anil funeral of Miss Miriam Itirnes.
Many business men were prevented from at
tending in time for the New Knghnd tlinner
because of Ihe hie arrival of Ihc Mariposa.
Hut the result both in dollars and cents and
in rational enjoyment, was a handsome gain
lo Ihe Punahou pimo fund and to Honolulu.

William Claude Jnncs faniili.nl) known lo
ltaw.tll.tns ns "Alto" (aiko) "the eagle"
died at Wailukit on the 3rd inslanl Wilh
the exception of Judge Austin ha was ihe old
est member of Ihc Hawaiian bar, nnd, in some
respects, one of Ihc most talented. He was
born in 1S5G at Mobile, Alabama. He served
as a second lieutenant (under (cn. Harney, it
Is said) through Ihe Seminole War in Florida;
and was a colonel during the Mexican War.
lie was afterwards deputy United States mar
shal for Northern Texas; via attorney-general
oi Missouri, nnd practiced law on circuits
where he met both Lincoln and ISonton. He
was in Kansas when the civil war broke out,
but took no part. As a writer in Ihc Advertiser
says he was "often heard to say tint however
strongfy he felt alxiut Ihe cause of the South,
he amid not nnke up his mind to take up
arms agiinst Ihc llag under which he had
fought and shed his blood in lvo wars and in a
hundred fights ngiinsl ihe Indians." At the
beginning of the war he moved to New Mexi
co, Ihcncc lo Arizona, compiling for Ihe latler
territory its first civil ami criminal axle. He
came to these islands in 1S56. Ten years
later he represented North Kont in the legis
lature. He was at otic lime police justice of
this city, and give up its pay of $3,000 a
year to go into the Husli-Morcno cabinet as
attorney-general. When Colonel Jones arriv
ed he was very clnqucnl, and his eloquence,
coupled wilh his commanding nose, (lashing
eyes and marked gestures won him among Ihe
natives Ihc nickmnie of "the eagle." Drink,
however, got the better of him. He wrote
good ptosc and fair verse, and a great ileal of
lxjth. His last effort, a criticism upon the ac
cepted afterglow theory, anil signed "Viatoi,"
was published two weeks ago in ihis piper.
He leaves a family.
It is seldom that a show visits these islands,
but when a good one like Sherman's does
come, Ihc public appreciate il, as was shown
lasl Thursday night. The tent was filled, and
large numbers were sent away unable lo gain
admission. This show is well nnd favorably
known throughout the Golden Slate. Hut
Ibis is its first visit here. It hid its origin
with Mr. John Sherman, the senior partner.
He first found that the trick horses, Harney
and Tomniie, which, by the way, were then
work horses on his farm in Ciliforriia-hid
great cleverness; and hcconcluded to train (hem
a little. This training proved so successful that
he went still further nnd took Ihcm traveling,
and added from lime to time enough talent to
make a circus.
At S o'clock llie Uoyal Hawaiian Hand
struck up a tune and Mr. John Sherman, with
his horses Harney and Tomniie were intro
duced to the waiting spectators. Ho'.h horses
arc finely built and bowed, walked, stopx;d,
started nnd lay down at conmnnd. Next on
the programme came the world renowned slick
rope dancer, Mr. Charles Crossmtn. The
Morrosco brothers who followtd were excellent.
Then came Mr. Sherman and the Irick and
clown horse Jack, accompanied by the clown
Thompson. He attempted lo go to see a
friend, but "came to a fork in the rntd; the
horse went one fork and he went the other."
Mr. Sherman then introduced Miss Mabel St
Clair, who, first making the horse lie down to
mount, then rode him several limes around the
ring wilh great etse. The exercises on the
double horizontal bir were well ixitformcd,
nnd Thompson deserves great credit for Ihe
success he nl last had, after many sorry at
tempts. Next came n grand free fight the
principal actor being Hilly O Hell.
Then followed ihc best pail of the circus
Mr. John Sherman with his trick horses Harney
and Tomniie. Udrney is his f ivorite, and he
very cleverly untied strings from Tommic's
feet, walked over him and Mr. .Sherman, and
also lay down beside thcni. Harney alio sits

A moonlight visit (adapleil from the Daily
llullctin ol 'the 12th Instant) was piid one
nighl this week to the bairacks of (he mounted
police at ihe in Station of "ourselves." Jump
ing on lo "our" steed, "we" sped through
Ihe cool midnight air, 011 a hotse, which did it
jnlle in three minutes. Arriied at the entrance
to the Itu racks "we" found wwof lUctievferi
on guard, nnd wailing in vain for a few min
lutes before riding llnougti Ihe grounds, In orde
lliat "we" might be hilled by " who gx;s
here?" "we" continued down inward the
slalitef, where a mm was (not) ready lo take
"our" horse; in fact, no one was lo be seen or
heard. " We " seriously thought of sampling
some of the fine young horses, which were an
he makal side of Ihe building. On riding
loutid Ihc barracks, apd failing lo rouse any
one, "we" were alut to pul ituo execution
"our" idea of sampling ihe in. p. horses when
a man, Uiogcnesdike, came out of one of the
lent, wilh a lantern, soon followed by two
more sleepy natives. After wallinii for Ihcm
to get awake, "we" asked for Ihe officer In
charge. He had gone home. Where were all
Ihe slsteen recruits? They vveic all (with ihe
exception of ihoso already mentioned and two
others who were still asleep) in town, (prob
ably looking for carbines). The (ihree) men
were young, and (rather) ln-acllvc and in their
undress (decidedly undress) uniform they
looked far more untrained and useless, tlun
Ihcir bultonlesss brethren nt llie kvracks of
Ihe regulars. " We " left, and as " we " sped
through Ihe aforesaid, cool, midnight air, "we"'
thought from our own oWrvatinn that ihe
visit of Ihe " llullctin " man was a put un lob.
Vl that w had K'eli prctly well taken in.

Hut he had a spechl chim on the friends and
members of llie association in having done so
much toward the establishment of this build
ing. Mr. Smith said he represented a constitu
ency of four thousand San Franciscan Smiths.
lie congratulated the members of the associa
tion on their fine building and their opportu
nity for good work, encouraged the incmbeas
to activity in the front rank ns co-workers with
the churches, and advised them to take a Ixjld
and decided stand on all questions affecting
the public welfare, as in the cause of temper
ance. We had good laws here
but Ihc wise provisions therein were
allowed lo remain as dead letters
on Ihe statute books. They need to be en
forced as has been done elsewhere to drive the
accursed traffic out of these beautiful islands
and mike tins a free htul. The speaker in
terspersed his long and interesting address
with n number of anecdotes lint kept his
audience in thorough good humor, At the
close, the president remarked that a committee
ofladies had provided ice cream and refresh,
nients for which the entertainment would
stand adjourned, but lhat upon the statement
made by Ucv. Mr. Critian last Sunday evening

General Weaver, the great lirccntiackcr, is
nut for lltillcr for president.
Governor Sliennm of Iowa lo a Chicar;ri
reporter t "As regards the presidency, I
think that Inwa favors Maine."
The San I'rancisco Argonaut lias asked each
of its Hcpubllean readers to write and tell who
his choice Is lor the nest president.
It is said lint lMtmtnds Is Ihc second choice
of Arthur's, friends for Ihe presidency. Lin
coln they think In be the strong mtn for vice
president in cither ease.
A New- Orleans special d tied Ihc aim! ul
timo sajji "Week after nest the l-otiisiina
Republican Stale Convention, so called, will
be held here. It will be solid for Arthur."
Virginh wiH send to the nilioml Ucpuli
llcan convention at Chicago two sets of dele
gntes. Mahnne and his friends are ttndcrslrxxl
to be hostile to Maine, on account of his
opposition lo their rcadjuster schemes.
One of ihe litest developed xib!litics In
American politic I the nomination of Senators
I'avnc and Sherman for the presidency. Slier
nun by the Krpublicans, his colleague by the
Maine Is now among Ihc gossips as Ihe
"cyclone candidate," They say tint llie
movement In favor of him for the Republican
candidate for president will sweep down iixm
Ihc convention and carry il by storm.

printed in Ihc Republican of Montrose, I'cntr

TI10' a native of old Pennsylvania,
The annual Republican Conference of Ohio
was held on the nighl of tltc 271I1 ultimo at
Columbus, i lx:ing the largest since the war,
and disclosing to (he surprise of all that the
Sherman, Kostcr and Arthur workers, consti
tuting three separate factions, were actively nt
work preparatory to the selection of a dele
gation to Chicago. The state committee
meets to day to fix the time and place for Ihc
next state convention.' Il is found that John
Sherman has a better organization than in
1SS2, that the fetlcr.il office holders were all in
a line for Arlhur nnd lh.it Foster lml an
organization on hand for Maine nnd Foster or
I-ogan and Foster.
A I'cnsjlvania paper has printed the result
of a careful canvass by means of corrcsixin
tlcnts of the 400 counties of the States of New
Vork, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and
Illinois, in regard to the first nnd second
choice of the Republicans for prcsidenthl
candidates, and the first choice of each for
vice-president, the feeling toward President
Arthur as a candidate, and Ihc prospects of
Ihc party in the several states. These stales
were chosen because they contained, according
to Ihe flatfield vote in 1SS0, Republican votes
to the number of 1,925,497, Hancock voles
numbering 1,785,603, and a population in
iSSoof 17,619,996, or over one-third of the
total population of the Union. The total
result is that Maine is the first choice for
presidential candidate in 151 counties, Logan
in sixty-six, Edmund in thirty-three, General
Sherman in thirty-two, President Arlhur in
twentj-nine, John Sherman in thirteen, Post-master-General
Greshaiii in eight, Harrison in
seven, Lincoln in five, Foster and Culliitn
each in two, Washburne, Miller and Uvarls
each in one. The details from which these
toals were made up prescn ted very interesting
facts. Maine has a strong lead in New Vork,
Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. Lincoln
lead in the choice for vice-president in all the
above-named states, also in Illinois. General
satisfaction is expressed with Arthur's admin-
ialr.ition, but there are few advocates in any of
Ihe states for his re-election.
