We leave San Pedro and pass out be
tween tho buoys, rocking under a morn
ing sky, past the perilous rocks. The
Pomona rolls ever so little, and a lew un
happy mortals pay a tribute to Neptune.
"One touch of nature makes the whole
"world kin." I notice this, as a French
■woman and a German frau sing a "heave
ye-oh" chorus over ono tin-dish.
At Newport pier we see the whole pop
ulation gathered to see the steamer; such
a healthy, happy crowd of people, fresh
from their sea-baths. The men looked
like old cucumbers, and as if they had
been in brine for a week. I counted
seven mon who had lost their four front
teeth—remarkable case of mortality
among their molars. They probably had
been cracking some hard jokes. I no
ticed the ungraceful walk of many of the
women, and 1 came to the conclusion that
towns like San Pedro and Newport, built
on a foundation of sand, without lime
and hair, caused this ungraceful walk;
for, if you have ever observed, sand is an
exceedingly restless substance, and as a
foundation for sidewalks is not com
mended, even in the liible, if rocks are
handy —l>ut alas ! rocks arc scarce.
A number ot men are ranged in a row
on the end of the pier fishing. So close
are they sitting that one bite causes ex
citement, a sudden swirling of rods and
lines and a tangle is the result, and the
dums were beard as frequently as they
are seen In a country where irrigation is
carried on extensively.
We leave a passenger and some freight
and steam on under a cloudless sky,
with just the faintest ripple on the water,

seen now and then as we g> south, and

Point Loma light 500 feet above the soa,
the highest in the world. Now we see it
blushing "red as the wine of forgotten
ages," now "yellow as gold from the
sunbeams spun." The Pomona seems
assured of a welcome, and we speed to
ward it. Soon the twinkling glory of the
Del Coronado Hotel and beach lights are
seen, golden pins of night's dark veil
that covers the water, but the Pomona
sends abroad beams that lighten our
darkness from the electric search ligiit,

By daylight we notice the fine bay of

Washington, OcL2L—A. S. ('leghorn,
Collector of the (Jeneral Customs in the
Hawaiian Islands, who has been in this
city for a day or two, left last evening for
San Francisco, en route for Honolulu,
lin said: "I want to deny the reports
that have been circulated respecting the
reigning Queen's health. Since my de
parture in .June, and uj> to the last letter I
received, the Qneen's health lias been

is not the Slightest foundation for the re

George Bnokman last evening. Mr.

"There has been a Ing force of men and

"Where is the improvement going on?"
asked the reporter.
