THREATENING TO SHOOT.
Shortly before half-past one this
afternoon a quarrehtook place in the
yard of the Hawaiian Carriage Man
ufactory, between Mr. Cameron and
a man named Monroe, a blacksmith
who works at the Marine Railway.
After receiving some strong lan
guage loudly uttered by Cameron,
Monroe also obtained a slap in the
face. Monroe immediately drew
from his hip pocket, a loaded six
shooter and aimed at Cameron. T.
B. Murray, who worksat the Hono
lulu Carriage Factory, seized Monroe
from behind, tripped him up and
took the loaded weapon which was
handed to Mr. Schuman. then to
Mr. J. I. Dowsctt, Senior, who
returned it for safe keeping to Mi-.
The police were informed of the
matter, but, owing to the arrival of
Kaui the runaway at the Station
House, they came late upon the
scene. One of the force however
passed down Fort street, across
'Queen, when tho crowd was assem
bled, waited till there was time for
them to disperse 'ind then came
along Queen to survey the premises.

Captain Doughty found, on his
arrival at Honolulu, a telegram from
the Admiralty ordering him to pro
ceed without delay to Esquimault to
relieve the Heroine, which vessel will
arrive here tho latter part of May,
and will convey H. B. M.'s Commis
sioner, Major Wodehouse, to any of
the adjacent "islands that he may
wish to visit.
Saturday night's performance of
the circus was decidedly the best
that has been given. The per
formers had profited by our hint,
last week, of their shortcomings,
and evidently determined to retrieve
their lost laurels. From first to
last there was not a hitch in the pro
gramme as given. Many new acts
were included and the audience was.
well pleased. The horse Barney in
jured himself, before the perform
ance, by running against a stake and
losing a large part of his skin. The
injury, however, did not seem to
affect him, and he was even able to
dance to the badly rendered waltz.
Harry Morosco, when he appeared
with his pair of ponies, was stopped
in the ring by Dr. McAllister, who
decorated each of the ponies and
their rider with handsome leis, pre
sents from the boy's fair admirers.
The gifts were evidently appreciated
a3 the act was unusually well per
formed and the ponies seemed to
feel that the' had received special
honor by their Hawaiian decora
tions. The last performance of the circus,
in Honolulu, will take place to-night
and the prices of admission have
been considerably reduced, as will
be seen by reference to our adver

Tin: chain and ball prisoner Kaui,
who escaped last week from the
quarry, was caught this morning at
Lcilckua by Anakalcia, the deputy
sheriff. He was safely returned to
the custody of the Deputy Marshal
at 1 :30 p. m., but how long he will
safely remain there is another ques
tion. His fellow bolter is reported
to have gone to Koolati, and is sup
posed to have stolen, last night, a
saddle from Mr.,IIoughtailing at Pa
lama and a horse from a Portuguese
who lives opposite to Mr. Lucas.
Kaui should receive two or three
dozen lashes in public.
TOO MUCH JAM.
President Grevy has a regal rival
in the making of jam. The Queen
of Saxony, it seems, excels in jam
making, and the cupboards of her
palace are filled with pots of pre
serves to an extent which would pro
bably satisfy even Mr. Gladstone.
Her Majesty spends whole weeks in.
m the autumn making jam, and posi
tively balances her housekeeping book
daily. Unfortunately, a taste for the
royal jam is not very prevalent at tho
Saxon coxrt. The courtiers, in spite
of their desire to be complimentary,
find their capacity for jam-eating
limited, and the bulk of the Queen's
preserves arc distributed to the poor
of Dresden to such an extent, in
deed, that there is a weak, apropos
joke prevalent in the capital that
Her Majesty never- goes out, even
when unattended, t'wilh oxxlasuit!"
"The use of a mirror, "wrote Mac
aulay, in a. certain famous review,
"is not to be painted On." But re
volving 3'ears have proved that Mac
aulay was wrong, for a painted rifirror
is now an ordinary drawing-room or
nament. Again, it was formerly
supposed that horse marines were at
least as mythical as the Greek Ka
lends, but we have changed all that.
A telegram from Suakim informed
us the other day that "some of marines-are
being mounted." Thus a
horse marine is no longer a myth, but
a stern reality. So, one by one,
vanish the most cherished illusions
of oiir earlier days. Life. '
