The' Chinese crew of the Pacific
Mail boats at San Francisco were
not allowed to land to act as steve
dores, by order of tho Commissioner
o! Immigration. Ho stated it-was a
iolation of tho law. The prac-
ticular instnnco was in the case ot
the Coptic's crew.
The Amrricnii-Hawniian steamship
rrgniihiu arrived at San Francisco
on August !) and it it quite possible
that sho will bo tied up in tho strike
there for an indefinite period,, as she
has- an immense cargo for that port.
beside having taken on considerable
for tho Hawaiian Islands.
On Saturday the schooner Alice
Kimball which came m from Aahu
lui last Thursday evening, after hav
ing been wrecked on the rocks there
went on tho "Marine Railway for re
pairs. It was found that her keel
was badly battered, and a. new one
will havo to bd .put it. Despite her
rough usage while lying on her side
on the reef, yho is-in fairly good eon
dition. .The planking is not injured
and shows good preservation.
The launch for tho Inter-Island
Company which arrived on the barli
Gerard C. Tobey. from San Francisco
lias been found to bo satisfactory in
every respect. She wits given her
preliminary trial on Saturday, and
another yesterday afternoon. Sho
will be used in connection with the
Mauna Loa to tow the ship's boats
between tho vessel and the. landing
ports. It is probable that a second
launch will bo ordered. from 'San
Francisco for use on another of the
H11.0, August 15. Tho Tribune
saj's: It does not seem probable that
the tidal wavo reported at Kailu
was more than an unusually high
tides. For. the last I wo months the
tides all over the Island havo been
excessively high; there has been a
heavy surf, and in Honolulu especially
tho mean sea level is said to havo
been raised six inches. Prof. C. J
Lyons says it may bo owing, to
the unusually low barometer in this
part of tho ocean.
Tho.S. T. Alexander, which was to
havo sailed for Knhului on August 8
is tied up in Sun Francisco Bay by

August 8, sho was lying in the stream

About two hundred strikers camo out
to her on scows and took every sail
