Record Crowd Watches Honolulan Pull
From Docks Band Plays Aloha Oe
As Berger Waves From Deck
Waterfront is Quiet Gener
With tears streaming down his fare'n. but an unexpected stranding up
Captain Bergor stood on the deck of set all calculation on this homl. Ev
tho steamer Honolulan this morning rrjthliiK went all right unJl she
as sho cleared tho dock bound for
Snn Francisco. Down below him were
hundreds ot people, everyone or whom
know him and were there to wish him
Godspeed on his long holiday trip.
His own band, the ono that he has
nursed, praised and spanked as occn
nlon demanded, under a new leader
played the haunting Btrains of Aloha
Oc. A wavo of sympathetic fouling
ran through the crowd as tho occa
sion called to mind memories that
have long remained hidden away in
Borne brain cell.
Handkerchiefs waved, tears wero in
many people's eyes until tho steamer
finally swung round and the whlteclad
figure disappeared from sight.
Professor Soverin, ot tho College
of Hawaii, and also of frultfly fame,
got aboard without any further trou
ble such as he anticipated.
Tho Honolulan took a large number
of passengers from here and had a
bis cargo list.
QUIET ON WATERFRONT.
Although there are a number of ves
sels in port and the docks present a
husy appearance matter.1? are more or
loss quiet Following tho heavy work
of last week and the arrival of a num
her of steamers very few vessels have
made their appearance during the last
few days, these being ono or two
steamers and an odd windjammer.
AUSTRALIA'S FIRST STEAMER.
With magnificent steamers running
between the ojd world and Australia
and with a port which ranks among
the first ten in tho shipping world
tho following account taken from one
of tho Sydney papers is interesting.
The trip up the Parramatta river re
ferred to now takes one hour by fer
ry steamer and the fare is twelve
"It was on March 31, 1S31, that the
Surprise, the first Australian steamer,
slid majestically into the waters of
Port Jackson from the yard of her
builders, Messrs. Smith Bros.
"Every preparation had been taken
to nrovent the occurrence or sucn aw
cldents as too often detract from tho
cheerfulness of such occasions, and as
the appointed hour arrived numerous
parties were to be seen hastening to
Neutral Bay, whore she had been
built. The tide served about 11
o'clock, and shortly after that hour
the signal was given. The ceremony
of christening was performed by Mr.
Smith with a bottle of champagne,
and the Surprise slid majestically
irom the stocks amid the cheers ot
those assembled, taking possession of
her station in tho peaceful waters of
Tho Gazette describes this historic
craft as "a fine little boat, nearly
flat-bottomed. 8 feet In the keel, atfd
25 tons burthen." Tbe Surprise was
built to ply between Sydney and Par
ramatta, and made her first trip on
Juno 1. She was announced to sail
at 10 o'clock, "but tho preparations
were not completed till after fl
o'clock, when her chimney poured
forth volleys of smoke, her paddles
tioimn in bufffit the water.iand sho
gently glided out of the Cove."
Continuing its quaint report, the
Gazetto says: "Sho rounded the
Battery in tho Hnest style, and pro
ceeded up the- river with majestic
mien, until tho spectators lost sight
of her behind Ball's Head. Tho effect
was truly animating. The fineness of
aho morning, the beauty of the land
scape, the smoothness ot tho "water.
through which she gently swam like
a living thing, her Image reflected
upon the silvery expanse together
with the consciousness that this was
tho first movement in tho southern
homlsphore of that tremendous pow
er which has performed such wonders
In tho northern world, giving to con
veyanco by water tho ease, tho ccr
talnty, and more than tho rapidity of
.conveyance by land combined to im

reached Hed Point, where sh stuck
in the mud, and romaincd hnrd and
fast till 10 o'clock that night She
floated oft then with tho rising tide,
and reached her destination half an
On tho following morning, the
Gar.ette tolls us, "the concourse of
spectators, for so small a town, was
immonse, amounting to 400 or 500,
som of whom had come from tho in
terior to behold tho surprising Sur
prieo. At 1 o'clock sho ngaln put
forth her steaming powers, and pro
ceeded towards Sydney, having on
board between 30 and 40 passengers.
At Newlngton, the scat of Mr. Bias
land, sho stopped to land a number
of Parramatta ladles and gentlemen,
who accompanied her thus far by way
of experiment. The remainder of the
passage was performed without ob
struction or nccldent, and sho arrived
at Sydney at half-past 4 in tho after
noon." According to the Gazette the only
defect In tho Surprise was that she
was "rather top-heavy, and rolls to
an unpleasant degree." The owners
however, wero going to remedy this
by lowering tho dock 18 inches. Small
as this pioneer harbor steamer was
she had two classes of arcommodu
tlon for passengers. For those wlio
sought "tho seclusion that tho cabin
grants" tho fare to Parramatta was
87 cents, but if you traveled steerage
the trip could bo made for f0 cents.
The steamer Lurline will tow tho
ship William P. Prye to Kahulul in
all probability about June 7.
Tho schooner Repeat arrived yes
torday afternoon with a full lumber
cargo from the northwest.
The submarine oil tanker Libby-
Mack will mako its first trip to the
other side of tho island this week.
Tho discharging of the James John
son will take another week.
