AFTEK THE MATCH THE SUri'Ull
AFTKIl THi: SUIH'EU AT EMMA
SQUAUE, AND SUBSEQUENTLY.
At the conclusion of the base-ball
match on Monday the two teams inot
at the hotel, when the health of the
victors and vanquished visitors was
cordially responded to. At the in
vitation of the Honolulu B. B. 'Club,
the representatives of Sprcckelsvillc,
and their gallant supporter, adjourned
to the local Astor House, where
supper was partaken of, and several
vocalists entertained the company
with songs, the choruses of the Maui
nine being especially admired for
their harmony. After the supper
the nines again met and perambula
ted quietly through various portions
of the city, ending their strolls at
Emma Square, where the band was
discoursing sweet music, giving a
hearty encore to the "Southern
Breeze," to which Mr. Berger kindly
responded. Subsequently most of
them adjourned to private apartments
and the health of Spreckelsville was
again proposed, the cheers with
which it was greeted almost raising
the roof. Captain Coffee responded
briefly, thanking the Honolulu re
presentatives for their kindness, and
saying that, though vanquished they
were not disheartened, and intended
to regain their laurels on their own
ground. He then proposed the
health of the Honolulu nine, to
which Captain Whitney responded,
saying, that his men had done their
level best and had won ; while he
sympathized with the losers he was
glad that he was a victor, and he
would be pleased, next season, to
take a team to Maui. Mr. Lucas
said that he could not allow this
friendly gathering to part without
expressing the appreciation which
his (the Maui) side felt for the
voluntary kindness of Mr. W. H.
Corn well who had come with them"
and encouraged them all through
their trials. Mr. Cornwell said that
what he had done was a pleasure to
him and he feit proud at the manner
in which his own boys had conducted
themselves. One of the light-weights
contributed to the amusement of the
company by showing his ability to
dis-member a table. One and all
expressed the opinion that the re
presentatives of Spreckelsville were
as pleasant and gentlemanly a team
as could be met with in any quarter
of the globe, and, though cheer-fully
parting with them fondly hoped once
more to meet them in the field.
Captain Ckossley's letter to Mk.
Hibben, of Cincinnati, father
of one of the missing boys.
Through the courtesy of Mr.
Atherton we are enabled to publish
the following letter which appeared
in the New York World.
Kelung, Formosa, Aug. 1G, '83.
My Dear Sir : It is with u sad
heart that I feel compelled to give
you an account of the calamity that
lias befallen us. On the 31st of Ju
ly, while near the Island of Agin
court, there being at the time but a
light air of wind and sea smooth, I
thought best to send my son and two
men to see if there were any outlying
danger, as the ship appeared to be
drawing near the island, and your
son desiring to accompany them
came and asked me foivthc privilege
of going with them, and as he had
been out before in the same boat
and as I apprehended no danger,
I gave permission.
They started at 10.80 a. m., with
water and provisions in the boat
enough lo last them several days.
Before leaving the ship I told Mr.
Crossley that if he saw any thing
like reefs or rocks to wave a flag in
the direction I should keep the ship
'and when he saw the ship's ensign
go up to return immediately. After
the boat had nearly reached thc is
land he waved his flag, na 1 under
stood it, to keep a little more off,
and at the same time, say about
11.30 a. m., I found the Bhip drift
ing by and set my flag for the boat
to return and tried to get the ship
bout to keep as near as possible to
them, but the tide, whioli hero re had
not been noticed, seemed to drift us
(there not being at the timo wind
enough to move the ship through tho
water to make it ateor) away from
the island townrds another about ten
miles distant, called Craig.
About 1 o'clock a light air Hpring
'"K "Pi got the ship about and stood
buck towards the island near as pos
sible, but the wind was in a direc
tion thnt I could not get close. Be
tween 12 and 1 o'clock the boat was
still seen pulling towards the island,
and they being near the land we lost
sight of them. But as we passed,
houses and two men were seen on
NOT ON THE ISLAND.
At 4 o'clock in the afternoon we
were near enough to sec small ob
jects on the island, but no return of
boat and night coming on I felt very
much alarmed lest they had landed
and the natives had proved unfriend
ly, and tacked off and on the island
all night, keeping torch-lights flam
ing at-short intervals, but morning
coming and no boat, and fearing
they had tried to land and got into
difficulty with the natives, I thought
best to lose no time to get assistance
from this port.
On arrival here I learned that the
natives were friendly and that no
possible danger could happen them
if they landed. My fears were
somewhat lessened and I made haste
to send them assistance. On Au
gust 1, 10.30 r. at., came to anchor
outside this port, and owing to light
winds could not get in until the 2d.
and there being no steamer here sent
messenger for one to Tamsui. Same
day sent a 5-ton fishing boat, seven
men and one of my crew, but they
did not get far. A small steamer
having arrived was dispatched as soon
as possible. Mr. John Dodd, Eng
lish Consular Agent of Tamsui and
this port, did all in his power to help
me. On the return of the small
steamer the China was sent by Mr.
Dodd from Tamsui and I went in
her to visit the islands. The natives
came on board through the surf,
but we failed to get any tidings of
them, the natives saying that they
did not see the boat at all.
I could not land, as the sea was
rough at the time. Since that time
a Chinese gun-boat has visited the
Islands with one of my men on board
and a thorough search was made,
but failed in gaining any tidings of
the missing ones.
BLAMING OUR CONSUL.
As soon as possible assistance was
applied for from our Consul at
Amoy for a gun-boat to search the
adjacent Islands, but as he was
aboutto visit Japan with his family,
he did not take any active measures
for relief, so I hear.
I have been overland twice to
Tamsui to see what could be done,
and so far with very unsatisfactory
results. Up to the present time Mr.
John Dodd, an Englishman of much
experience, had done more for me
than I could expect. But the sur
rounding difficulties seem to place a
barrier not easily overcome. So far.
all has been done that could be and
with but unsatisfactory results. I
have strong hopes that they may be
picked up by passing vessels, in
which case you would be likely to
hear Of it sooner than myself. I
have tried to communicate by cable
with the States, but so far I have
heard nothing in reply. It is a ter
rible blow both, to you and me and
must cause much sorrow and suffer
ing in our families, but I have strong
;hopes that they ma' yet be picked
up and landed safely. The effect
tells heavily at present on me, but I
hope we may be spared anr further
calamities and that the missing ones
may be restored. Yours in sorrow,
I. P. Crossley.
Editor Bulletin: The article
headed " Sugar Commission," taken
from the S. F. Merchant, that ap
peared in your paper of the 2Gth,
contains truths which should not be
lost sight of, bearing, as they do, on
the continuation of the Reciprocity
Treaty, so conducive to Hawaii's
The writer, a friend to reciprocity,
and desirous of extending American
influence, while descanting on the
large and increasing American in
terests here, incidentally, mentions
that the official classes, other than
the pure Hawaiian, are mainly Amer
ican or of American descent.
Surely this last truth should disarm
opponents of the present government,
but, then, some of the loudest are
said to be of British birth ; but how
is the distaste among Americans for
tho Premier and his policy to bo ac
counted for. Seeing that under his
rule more has been doue to promote
American interests than ever before
in so short a time ?
He has managed to get rid of near
ly every individual of British birth
holding office, not oven excepting
one very near the throne ; and, if
left alone, will probably rid himself
of the remaining few in a short time,
Thus, itwillbeseen, that he deserves
support, and not hard words from
those, to serve whom, he is straining
his utmost abilities, and no doubt he
will receive it when his efforts are
appreciated. At any rate, it can
not be Bald by opponents of reciproc
ity in tho United States, that he is
not drawing closer the ties that bind
Hawaii to them. Spectator.
