THE FIRE FIEND'S
At 2:45 this a.m. an alarm of (Ire
for ward 5 nuig out on the clear
morning air and startled the deni
zens of the lower pait of the city.
The flic was seen issuing from the
rear of Wolfe's grocery and feed
store on King street The llatncs
soon got iu their work on that
and quickly spreading with the aid
of a moderate trade breeze, seized
on Howe's paint shop, spread thence
to the residence of C. T. Gulick,
Esq. on the other side of Wolfe's.
Before this a number of people
had gathered round and soon the
engines arrived, but owing to the
water being shut off at night were
useless until it was turned on. En
gineer Wilson placed No. 1 engine
at the cistern, corner of Merchant
and Alakea sts, supplied from the
Government House artesian well,
and water was soon forced through
the pipes and directed on the burn
ing buildings. By about 3 :20 the
water arrived, the delay being caus
ed by the lower reservoir being en
tirely empty, and having to be filled
No. 5 was the first to get a stream
on from this supply.
In the meantime those on hand ex
erted themselves to save what they
could from the burning buildings,
and Capt. Mehrtens, Messrs. Frank
Godfrey, Meyerdick, F. Wunden
bcrg and others broke into Mr. Gu
lick's and saved quite a considerable
amount of valuable property from,
the drawers, &c. But the fire spread
so rapidly that they were forced out
by the fierce heat. At this time the
wind freshened and fears were enter
tained for the safety of Lowers &
Cooke's lumber yard and the build
ings in the rear on Merchant street,
the lack of water rendering the fire
men almost powerless. By 3:25
water was in sufficient force to give
pretty powerful streams, and the
wind having gone down a little, our
brave fire-laddies got the fire under
coutrol, saving a building next the
lumber yard, which twice caught
fire. The rapidity of the fire may
be judged when we say that by 3 :30
Wolfe's Itorc, Rowe's shop, Way's
carpenter shop and C. T. Gulick's
residence and a number of out build
ings in the rear were burnt to tho
ground, a mass of smouldering ruins.
Engineer Wilson, after attending
to the placing of tho engines him
self, rode at breakneck speed to the
water works to see that his orders
had been carried out, and found the
delay caused as already stated. The
lire might have been put easily uu
der control near the start had there
been sutllcient force of water, and
this would have been the case if the
pump had been at work nt Mukiki,
which has been so long delayed by
the dilatory action of the Minister
of the Interior. Honolulu No. 1
were all ready but the lack of water
prevented them having first stream.
In fact all of the Fire Department
worked gallantly under their fore
men and the Bonrd of Engineers. A
'detachment of marines and sailors
from the Essex and 22 soldiers under
Major Kinimaka did good service.
Miuistcr Kapena was present and
heard tho curses on tho Government
about the water supply. The cause
of the lii'o and the amount of loss
are unknown yet. Major and Mrs
Gulick were at Kalilii at the time and
knew nothing of it. People on
Merchant street moved out aud the
street was lined with goods- Firo
(Miight on the rear of J, I. Dow
sott's and the Buuxtjk olllce, but
was promptly put out uwler the dl
rection of Mr. Clifford. Tho en
gineers, Messrs. Nott, Wilson nlul
Monsarrat, deserve great praise.
SECOND HEIMBUnCER CONDERT
on Tuesday evening was but spaiscly
attended. The cntcitainmcnt was,
however, much better than the first
night. The chief features of the
programme acic in pail first num
ber 2 and 3 and in part second num
bers 1, 4, and 0. Number two in the
fiist part Beethoven's Sonata,
Allegro, op.r3, was rendered by
Mrs. llcimburgcr with great taste
aud sympathy for the composer's
Ideas. Her delicacy of touch and
biilliancy of execution were shown
in No. -1 part 2nd, Liszt's 12th
Klmpsodj, than which wo desire to
hear no more delicate weaving of
musical ideas into
"fabric lighter than gossamer."
Mr. llcimburgcr delighted the au
dience iu No. 3, part 1st, a brace of
compositions of his own. The first
of these, n dninty little ballad in a
minor key set for the left hand aud
then extended and variatcd with
both bands was a little jewel. The
piano almost seemed -to speak tho
words of the poem. The effect of
the Caprice waltz, although pretty,
was spoiled by tho length of the
introduction. In the opening num
ber of Part 2 a fantasia by Liszt on a
couple of airs from AVilliam Tell,
Mr. Hciinburger surpassed himself.
The military feeling of the soldier's
march was splendidly brought out
and the wild fantasy of the macstro's
variations found an echo in the
hearts of the listeners. The enter
tainment concluded with one of
Gottschnlk's piquant duos, La
Gallina, brilliantly rendered by Mr.
and Mrs. Heimburger.
