FIRE AT MAKIKI.
A fire broke out, on Wednesday
morning in Makiki Valley, which
was at first supposed to be merely
the burning of bushes off a taro
patch. Towards evening the fire
increased on the mafcai side of
Tantalus, and Lieutenant Smytlic of
the Mounted Police, with an orderly,
rode at nine o'clock in the evening
to the scene of the conflagration.
lie found that, owing to the natural
formation of tlic surrounding country,
and the strong trade wind then
blowing, no possible damage could
arise as the fire would be confined to
the ridge of the mountain. Four of
the troopers were detailed to watch
the fire all night, and, at once tele
phone to their commanding oflleer,
should there be a change of wind,
and the lire assume a serious aspect.
The wind dropped during the night
and the fire smouldered ; but, at ten
o'clock on Thursday morning, Lieu
tenant Smythe, at the suggestion of
the Attorney-General, went, with
fourteen troopers, to the scene of the
fire. lie found the grass burning
furiously, and about forty trees on
fire. After several hours hard
work, they managed to beat out the
Haines, but found it iinposilrle to
extinguish thorn in the Irees, many
of them being of large size ; the men,
owing to the steep nature of the
ground, were unable to work as well,
as could have been desired.
At .1. I. m. on Wednesday, Lieu
tenant Smythe returned to camp,
leaving four men to watch the trees
as they fell burning, so that they
might extinguish the Haines and pre
vent the grass from becoming ignited.
lie then proceeded on foot, down the
valley, to inquire as to the origin of
tho lire, and ascertained that a for
eigner had been cutting bush on
Tuesday, and it is presumed that
this man set fire to it on Wednesday,
when, the wind being high, the
flames got beyond his control. The
house of a Portuguese was, at one
time, in considerable danger; a
quantity of glass and a number of
trees have been destroyed. But for
the assistance rendered by the much
abused Mounted Police, tho fire
would probably have spread into
Miinoa and Pauoa Valleys, and with
much .more serious results. This is
tho fourth time that this force has
been very serviceable in extinguish
ing bush fires in the immediate vi
cinity of Honolulu.
THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE,
At a meeting held on ILHb Inst,
adopted the following preamble and
resolution, a copy of which was for
warded to His Excellency the Min
ister of Foreign Affaiis :
'Whweiw questions affecting tho
Ticaty of Reciprocity with the Uni
ted States and of importance lo this
country, and especially to its Com
merce; and, whereas the desirability
of securing the continuance of said
ticaty for a definite period, has lately
been partially discussed in the local
newspapers, it seems proper that an
expression of opinion thereon should
lie made by this Chamber ; therefore,
Jtcsolcctl: That it is the opinion
of tliis Chamber that the commercial
and general interests of this country
would be promoted by an agreement
between the United Slates and Ha
waiian Governments to extend the
present Treaty of Reciprocity for a
definite tcim of years."
The first performance of Slier
man's Circus was witnessed by 2,000
people, and, before 8 o'clock, it be
came necessary to close the ticket
office. Shortly before dark Frank
La Mondue walked, outside the tent,
on a single wire from the ground to
the top of the lent and back again,
greatly surprising the large crowd
that saw him by the caso with which
lie performed his perilous journey.
The opening act introduced Cap
tain Fchlbclir, of the police force,
conveying several bushels of pea
nuts to liungiy Ilawaiians. This
feat was so successfully performed
that the gallant captain received a
hearty round of applause.
Mr. John Sherman then intioduced
his trained horses, Tom and Barney,
who made their bows to the audience
and executed their manoeuvres,
backwards, sidewards, forwards and
all round as wc have previously de
scribed, completing their exhibition
by retiring three in a bed with their
trainer, after Barney had said his
Chaj'lcs Moroseo gave a clever il
lustration of his capabilities of walk
ing, kneeling, sitting and sleeping
on a slack wire, lie seemed just as
much at home when his eyes were
blindfolded as when possessed of his
The Moroseo Brothers, Walter
and Harry, then went through their
posturing act, Harry being thrown
about and caught in a wonderful
manner by his big brother, who
utilizes his feet better than our best
base-ball catcher. This act con
cluded with a double somersault,
which produced well deserved rounds
of applause, and the exhibition of
the two brothers received the unani
mous verdict of excellent.
The clown horse Jack showed
himself as clever, in disobeying or
ders, as Tommy and Barney were in
obeying them. He knows "who's
boss." This act introduced Miss
Mabel St. Clair who had perfect
control over naught' Jack and rode
him several times round the ring.
The horizontal bar act by George
Scott and Frank Lu Mondue was
good and amusing, and our amateur
athletes might have been seen feel
ing their muscles.
Willie O'DelPs riding act, in which
he turned a somersault, alighting on
his feet on his home, showed careful
and long training.
Charles Moroseo, the clown; en
livened the proceedings with a mu
sical entertainment on seven yards
The tumbling net of Harry Mo
roseo, Scott and O'Dell followed,
and John Sherman then tied Tom
my's legs together and Barney set
his stable companion at liberty and
then did some other very clever
tricks. O'Dell and C. Morosco's
clown act preceded Scott and La
Mondue on the "Ladder of Life,'
which was a good exhibition of tra
pczic training. Tommy and Jack's
balancing act, Scott's club act and
Tommy driving his span concluded a
good performance which pleased
everybody. There will be two per
formances to-day, one commencing
at 2 o'clock, and the second at the
usual hour in the evening.
STEAMERS IH DEMAND.
( Philadelphia fntjuifcr.)
John I). Sprcckels, president of
tho Oceanic Steamship line, plying
between San Francisco and Hono
lulu, Sandwich Islands, arrived in
this city from San Francisco, and is
stopping at the Continental Hotel.
Mr. Sprcckels is a sou of Clans
Sprcckels, the extensive sugar ope
rator of the Pacific coast, and has
come Fast with the intention of
negotiating for several Bteauisliips
for n now line in contemplation by
the company, of which he is presi
dent, to run between California and
the principal ports in China via Ho
nolulu. It was reported that the object of
Mr. Sprcckels' visit lo this city had
reference to the purchase of the four
American lino steamships, and
another lcport was to the effect that
the gentleman had already entered
into a contiact with the Cramps for
two new steamers of G00O Ions regis
ter, to be finished in one year. They
were to have accommodations for a
large number of saloon and steerage
passengers, besides every facility for
carrying freight, particularly sugar,
which will bo the principal return
freight. It appears, however, that
these reports have been made with
out any authority. Mr. Sprcckels
was seen by a representative of Tin:
IxQUinr.n at Ihc Continental Hotel
last evening upon his return from a
visit to Cramps' shipyard, where lie
had spent most of the afternoon.
The yard presents an unusual scene
of activity, and the large number of
contracts recently received by this
firm have severely tried the capacity
of the place. 'Mr. Sprcckels made a
thorough inspection of the yard, and
manifested much interest in the seve
ral new steamships under way.
Captain Joseph Steele, the repre
sentative of the Oceanic Steamship
line in the building of the steamships
Mariposa and Alameda, but who is
not now in the employ of the com
pany, has been in this city for seve
ral days. He is a resident of Bos
ton, but has come here lo assist Mr.
Sprcckels in making his purchase.
At the conference at Cramps' ship
yard yesterday the plans for the
proposed new steamships wore dis
cussed, and in case the contract
should be awarded, arrangements
were contemplated for carrying them
out as soon as possible.
In speaking of his intended pur
chases, Mr. Sprcckels said that he
had not as yet entered into any no
gotiations, nor would he until he had
become acquainted with tho vessels
in the market, and had made a visit
to rscw lork. 11c had a long con
ference with Mr. Charles II. Cramp
on the subject, but no conclusion had
been arrived at, although the firm
will furnish estimates for two new
steamships costing about 8350,000
each. "You are perhaps aware,"
he coutinued, "that we already own
two fine steamers, the Mariposa and
Alameda, built by this firm, and as
these have given us satisfaction, it is
but natural that, if any more new
vessels arc to be built, the Cramps
will get the preference. These
steamers arc undoubtedly the finest
of the kind sailing under the Ameri
can flag, being the fastest vessels in
our merchant marine. They have
been found suitable for our trade.
both for passenger and freight ser
vice, and I believe that no other
firm could have suited us as well.
The only obstacle that may prevent
us from again giving a contract to
the Cramps is the fact that our busi
ness is increasing so rapidly that wc
arc sorely pressed for time, and, if
possible, I would like to obtain the
vessels at once. It is probable that
I may on that account be compelled
to secure some old x'cssels, although
1 must confess that it will be with
reluctance that this will be done.
Wc have been so well pleased Avitli
our two Philadelphia-built steamers
that wc would like to have them on
our next route. As it is, however,
we will have to do tho best wc can
under the circumstances."
"It has been said that you came
hero with the express purpose of
buying the four American line
steamers," broke in lhu reporter.
"Then that statement was made
without the lcust foundation. As I
have said bofore, I came to seo what
there was to bo had already built,
and if there was nothing in that lino
to be obtained, to contract with
some prominent firm for the con
struction of the vessels at once.
"As lo the American line steamers
I have very little knowledge. It is
probable that I will visit tho presi
dent of the company to-morrow -ind
confer with him about the matter.
I am not aware. that tlioy arc even in
the market, and should they be for
sale it is not certain that an agree
ment could be brought about as
regards the price. Tlioy are rather
old, and would no doubt require
"If these vessels should be found
to answer the purpose it is likely
that you would make the company
an offer, and how many of them
would you t'akoV" queried the scribe.
"In thnt caso," replied the gen
tleman, "I would bo apt to make
them a proposition to buy the four
Mr. Sprcckels further said that he
would lake a run over to New York
after making another visit to Cramp's
yard. He will velum lo this city.
In speaking of the company of
which he is president, Mr. Sprcck
els stated that the lino was doing
lemarkably well, both in passenger
and freight traffic. Besides the now
steamships tlioy have had nine sail
ing vessels constructed especially
for this kind of trade.
Thcso packets frequently make tho
run from San Francisco to Honolulu
in ten days, nlthough on tho return
trip it requires u longer time. Quito
a number of passengers, lie stated,
prefer to take the smaller vessels on
the outward run, as they are admira
bly fitted up, and give ample oppor
tunities to the uninitiated of having
"a splendid attack of sea sickness."
A general cargo is taken lo Honolulu,
while on the return trip the company
is amply remunerated by the large
sugar trade of the islauds.
