Leaves for the Annual En
For the past few weeks Company
I" has been busy studying drill
regulations and infantry tactics, and
drilling and getting ready for the
annual encampment to be held at
The soldier boys were earnest ami
willing and ready to learn the prin
ciples which underlie the maneuvers
ind formations and the hidden sec
rets of military strategy.
Within the past week or two it
was nothing uncommon to find men
bucked up in a 'quiet corner pouring
over copies of the drill regulations,
or to find one with book closed, a
far oft" look in the eye, softly and
carefully mumbling to himself some
dry, wearisome, passage on drill and
tactics as if it were a bit of verso
from the latest popular song or a
tender billet doux frbm a fair char
mer, or again to run across a group
earnestly arguing over some disput
ed point in the execution of a would
be command, as if the issues of life
depended on a satisfactory solution
Evciy evening could be heard
the rattle of the drum alternated
with the mellow notes of the bugle
rising and filiating in the soft moon
lit night, which to listeners mount
only so much music, to the thought
less so much noise but in reality
meant moil and toil for our soldier
In and around tho armory the
khaki clad squads wore tramping
and stamping from one formation
into another witn a Dreamless rapi
dity which is puzzling to the non
military on-looker. On Tuesday lust
tho khaki clad men assembled at
the armory and the apportionment
and packing of the camping outfit
wont through with.
After 2 o'clock in the afternoon
the Company, forty-nine strong, un
der command of Cupt. Hal and
Lieutenants Kanacholo and Kuue
fell in and left tho armory for the
railroad depot there to entrain for
Kahului, followed later by the ho.-
pitul corp detachment of twelve men
under Captain 11. II. Dinegar and
Sargeant Crowcll, all in heavy
Arriving at Kahului, after a long,
tedious wait at the Wailuku depot
tho soldier boys fell in Company
formation and marched to the wharf
to embark on the Claudinc.
The wharf yas crowded with
people. The usual number of friends
woro there to shako hands and all
that sort of thing, and ladies to
aduuro the brave show and sweet
hearts with brimining eyes full of
fond looks to exchange a few tender
nothings for a brief space soon to be
safely left behind with tho staid land
tin- prosaic and the aged.
As the tug pulled away its scow
loud of human ' freight the soldier
boys sulig "Aloha oe" a fitting fare
well to friends and sweethearts and
well wishers alike.

Tows in the Mohican with
The S. S. Lurline arrived in Ho
nolulu harbor Monday night after
a most eventful voyage. The ship
is a lii-ge freight and passenger boat
and will soon be one of tho most
popular bouts among the people of
It look over ten days and nine
hours to inuke the run from the
wharf in San Francisco to the wharf
in Honolulu. This was not due to
the slowness of the bout but to the
fact that she wns towing the Mohi
can with big guns for the harbor
All went well, except the passen
gers, during the first twenty four
hours niul then just nfter dark it
was found that the bits on the Mohi
can had given way and that the
towing bridle had pulled through
the hawse pipe and that the Mohi
can was tossing helplessly in the sea
without adequate sail and no an
chors. After hauling in the three hund
red fathoms of wire cable and as
much of the Mohican's chain as pos
sible the Lurline started nfter the
Mohican. At daylight she was
sighted some ten or fifteen miles off
and on getting alongside n line was
attempted to be fired from a cannon
over the Mohican. The attempt fail
ed as the line broke off near the pro
jectile. A line wus then run by the
iwe of u bout and the towing then
was begun again and continued
without serious delay for the rest of
Captain Weeden changed the
course ot the vessel to a more south
erly one in order to avoid the heavy
seas that were ragjng in the usual
track and probably shortened the
trip by several days by this course.
l'hcrc were thirty three cabin pas
sengers aboard. Many of these were
excellent people and far above the
average. There were two brilliant
children who entertained the grown
people with their songs and recita
tions, there was nu eniinint lawyer
who, with his .vife was traveling for
his health, and there were two mo
therly old ladies who were loved by
all their friends and respected by
every passenger aboard.
Of course some of the pus.-engers
were eccentric and these eccentri
cities inn used rather than annoyed
the rest of the persons nlmurd. There
was the sehoolniiun who tried to
convince the editor that the rough
sea was due to the moon and when
she asked him why so many of the
passengers were ill and not at the
table he emphatically stated that it
was the moon. There was a lady who
was simply horrilied nt two young
men for sitting on n sofa near
merry widow and listening to min
ing stories. She explained that she
never spoke to a man under any
circumstances when she was alone
and seemed to think it awful that
the widow should speak to two at
the same time. There were the
Peeping Toms of Coventry who tried
to find something for which they
might pull down their fellow pas
seilgcrs but in this they signally
failed. There wus tho self satisfied
gentleman who was called down by
little Miss Iceberg, and it was note
that they didn't speak as they pass
The ollicers did everything po
siblo to make'tho voyage a pleasant
one and at tho captain's dinner
speeches wore made by tho pasM'ii
