THIS DAY'S DOINGS.
Novelty Show Armless "Woman
Afternoon and Evening.
Ibitish Benevolent Society, 7:80
Whs observed ns n holiday pretty
generally by onr business people.
Shops wcro shut, flags hoisted, and
the Stars and Stripes floated
" to every breeze that blew"
from Nuunnu Vnllcy to wild Manoa,
and from where "the Angel's smile on
Wnikikt" to far Kalihi. About 9
o'clock in the morning the U. S. S.
Hartford, with the returning eclipse
expedition, arrived, and also having
His Majesty and suite, II. K. II.
Princess Poomaikalani, and Mr. and
Miss Michiels. on .board. Royal
salutes were fired and the yards man
ned as His Majesty left the vessel.
His Majesty was received on shore
by Gov. Dominis.
At 1 p. m. 13 guns were lived as a
National salute by the Hartford and
the shore battery. At 3 p. m. the
procession of the Post of the G.A.lt.
and ofliccrs of the Hartford formed
in front of the Knights of Pythias'
Hall, and, headed by the Band,
marched up to the Nuunnu Valley
Cemetery. About 30 members of
the Post turned out. On arriving at
the Cemetery the Ewa portion was
visited first and a halt made at Ma
jor Dickson's grave. Here a canopy
and reading-desk had been erected
and draped with the Stars and
Stripes. His Ex. R. M. Duggct
took the chair, and the exercises
were proceeded with as announced.
Mrs. Hopper, jr., read a poem en
titled "The Blue and the .Gray,"
and Mr. Cruzan the Orator of the
Day gave an eloquent and touching
address on the occasion which call
ed forth the observance of this day.
Not only were the graves of Ameri
can soldiers and sailors decorated,
but also British ones. An enormous
number of people were present, and
all took great interest in the pro
ceedings. THE AMERICAN ECLIPSE EXPE
DITION Left New York on March 2nd, and
after being joined by two observers,
sent by the Royal Society of Lon
don, arrived at Callao on March 20.
Here the U. S. S. Hartford, Captain
Carpenter, commanding, was in wait
ing to convey the expedition to its
destination Caroline Island. The
Hartford arrived on April 20th, and
nftcr the heavy packages of instru
ments, etc., were disembarked, pro
ceeded to Tahiti. On May 9th, the
Hartford again took the astronomi
cal party on board, and arrived at
Hilo on May 24th. A large party of
the ofliccrs and astronomers spent a
day at the Volcano. On May 2l)tli
the Hartford sailed for Honolulu
with the King and his party, as ad
ditional passengers, and arrived on
The Caroline Island, which was oc
cupied as an observing, station, is
situated in 10 degrees South latitude
and 150 15- W. longtude. It
roust not be confounded witli the
Caroline Islands which are further
west. It is a coral atoll some 7
miles long by 2 miles wide, and is
leased by Ilouldcr Bros. & Co., of
London, for a cocoa-nut plantation.
It was formerly worked, for guano,
but this business appears to lmvo
been abandoned. Several kanakas
are kept on tho island to preserve
the property. Shortly after the Am
erican Expedition arrived, tho French
frigate L'Eclaireur came in with tho
French eclipse party on board. After
landing them she also proceeded to
Tho stay on the Island was none
too long for the preparation!) re
quired to install tho telescopes and
apparatus. Everything was ready
however for tho Cth of May. Tho
day began cloudy, but, fortunately,
the whole period of the eclipse was
clear. Perfectly successful obser
vations were obtained by till -tho
parties, , These consisted in tele-
scopic and spectroscopic observations
by the American, English and French
patties, and f photographic obser
vations by the English and French.
The results obtained, being strictly
scientific in their nature, cannot bo
explained here, but will be duly
communicated to the scientific so
cieties of the United States and Eu
rope. It is sufllcient to say that
these results aro considered ns very
satisfactory bv the astronomers. It
is expected that the parties will sail
for San Francisco on the Zealnndtn.
THE OnUISE OP THE H ATBFORD
The Hartford left Callao with the
Solar Eclipse party on board bound
for the Caroline Islands March 22nd.
Arrived there on April 20th nftcr
a pleasant passage and landed them.
Owing to there being no harbor

on board again and left on the 9th
for the Hawaiian Islands, anving at
Hilo on the 24th. After the Eclipse
