THE GLEANERS' SOCIETY
held their annual entertainment in
the parlors of Fort street Church on
Thursday evening. According to
promise the entertainment begun
punctually at 7 o'clock by a very
pretty piano duct by Miss IT. Dick
son and II. Ilillebrand. Then came
a recitation by Mrs. W. Hopper,
which we could not hear owing to
the noise of people talking at the
doors and moving about. Miss C.
Castle played Schullz's Sclavonic
song as a pianoforte solo to the
great satisfaction of the audience,
who would have liked to have heard
it a little longer. Then came the
event of the evening, the Fan Drill,
by teu little Kate Greenaways, from
3 to 8 years of age, five dressed in
pink and white and Ave in blue and
white. Miss Sarah King superin
tended the drilling, and Miss Moss
'rjjan played the musical accompani
ment. So great was the desire to
see the beautiful and "bewitching
sight that many people got up from
their seats and y crowded forward to
obtain a belter view. The coquetry
of the movements of the little dar
lings was both surprising and en
chanting. Miss King deserves great
credit for tlio perfection which
they attained in only one month's
prcticc. Seven of them were from
the Kindergarten and three from
Fort btrcet School. After this came
a vocal solo, " Kisses tell the t:le,"
from Mrs. Cruzan, which struck
home to all hearts and was vigorous
ly applauded. Mrs. Adams gave a
recitation from Henry VIII., which
twas well received. Tho. quartette,
which ended the programme, was
After this the screens were drawn
aside, and the business of the even
ing commenced. Cakes and coffee,
ice-cream and sandwiches filled up
the void pleasantly, and fortified
one. for ,a stroll round the fancy
table, the doll table, the candy
stand and the flower table. Many
purchases were made, and social
conversation and fuu'indulged in till
about 10 o'clock. The receipts
amounted, to over 8500.
The Annual meeting
of the Y. M. C. A. was held on
Thursday evening in tho Bethel
Vestry. After the introductory
prayer the minutes of the last
meeting were read and confirmed.
Balloting for olliccrs for the ensuing
year took place with the following
resuct: A. F. Judd, President; C.
M. Cooke, Vice President; F. J.
Lowrey, Secretary; T. G. Thrum,
Treasurer; T. II. Davis nnd II.
Wnterhoube, Directors, The retiring
Treasurer Mr. F. Eckley rend his
report from which it appeared the
bulanco in hand was 855,49 but with
an outstanding account and sub
scriptions this would be reduced to
about ?5. It was accepted and filed.
Owing to tho Secretary stating that
no papers of previous years could
be found tho President asked that
all persons having records or papers
belonging to the Association hand
them in as soon as possible.
Tho Recording Secretary then read
his report from which it appeared
that 10 monthly, 1 annual, nml3tnccl
al meetings had been held during tho
year and that tho average number in
attendance was 32. Twety-eight
how members had been added dining
the year, one had ithdrawn and
two had been removed by death,

the appointment of a General Secre

beam 32 feet, and she has 15 feet
below the water-line. Her arma

the small gnn, 5 lbs. powder and a
25-lb. shot. She carries Whitehead
She was built in 1879, and this is
her second commission. She left
Russia on the 25th of last July and
spent three months in the Mediter
ranean, arriving off the const of
Egypt just after the bombardment
of Alexandria, and remaining there
till the close of the war. She will
proceed on her way to Hongkong
some time next week, where she ex
pects to meet Admiral Kopitoff, now
on his way from Sydney to Hong
kong. She will then proceed to the
Japanese station, and remain there
the balance of her three years' com
mission. She is to be followed hero
by tiie Skobeleff, a much linger cor
vette earning 8 guns.
Her highest spend is 13V knots,
and she made the fastest passage
.under sail from Valparaiso here
3G days. On her former commis
sion she went from the Cape of
Good Hope to Batavia under sail in
28 days. The pyrnvilone used in the
torpedoes is of Russian manufac
ture. The torpedoes were manu
factured in the arsenals at Kronstndt
under the supervision of Engineer
Ivanoff and Lieutenant Nidcrmuller,
who have received many premiums
for the improvements they have
made in these modern engines of
warfare. The guns are also of Rus
sian manufacture, by Obukoff. She

light forward on thct system of
Siemens 'and Gulnki, worked by a
Dolgoroukoff engine of 8 horse
power". The glass difluscr in front
is in concent! ic circular prisms,, on
the system of Flniu'iil.
Altogether the Nayczdn'k is well
fitted with all the newest appliances,
and under her present cap ain and
ofllccrs will, no doubt, do good ser
vice for her country.

la our yesterday's issue we pub
lished the following statement: "The
three Chinese witnesses that oc
cupied the attention of the Court
from 10 a.m. until 4. p.m. afforded
their countrymen an opportunity of
hearing how grossly the truth can
be perverted even by members of
the Chinese Church." Wc have
since learned that wc were mistaken
in saying that they were members of
the Chinese Christian Church and
we regret exceedingly that we should
have thus cast an uncalled for
aspersion on Hint Church.
Mit. J. L. Richardson, of the
Waianae Plantation, sent up the fol
lowing particulars of tho accident
which occurred at the plantation
yesterday: A train of 11 cars were
conveying the men to work when one
oftthe Chinese fell off and thc'cirrran
over hud broke his arm ; he is also
considerably bruised and scratched
about the body and face, by' the
axle-box. He worked on tho plan
tation some years ago, but went to
China and brought out some friends,
nnd had resumed work only four
days ago. The Mokolii brought the
nuin to Honolulu yesterday morn
ing, when he was taken to the' Hos
pital, and at' last accounts we hear
hu is doing well.
