A GREAT SALE.
Seldom, if ever, has the Hono
lulu public been offered a grander
lot of household goods, than the
furniture and other contents of Mr.
Luce's residence, to be sold at auc
tion by Mr. Adams to-morrow. This
fact is evident to even a cursory
perusal of the advertisement in this
paper. Special mention may be
made of the aviary, containg a mag
nificent collection also of birds ; of
the rare art works of various kinds.
The valuable house and lot, with
very complete appurtenances, will
be put up at the same time. Free
conveyance will be provided those
wishing to attend, in busses leaving
E. O. Hall's corner at 9.15 and G. -15
o'clock. A free lunch furnished by
2oltc will be served at the house.
THE BRANCH HOSPITAL.
A process of cleaning and refur
nishing the leper hospital at Kakaako
has for tome time been in progress.
Iron bedsteads in place of wooden
ones in the female wards, and an
abundance of paint and whitewash
laid on all round, arc part of the re
novation, whereby the condition of
the unfortunate patients will un
doubtedly be alleviated. Yesterday
a luau was given the inmates, under
the auspices of the President of the
Board of Health, followed by a band
concert. With Hon. Mr. Gibson
were present Hon. A. S. Cleghorn,
acting-Governor, and Hon. Mr. and
Mrs. Gulick. The consideration
thus shown the lepers was highly
NEW SEED SUPPLIES.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs
has received from Dr. J. Mott
Smith a case of seeds of fodder and
other plants. They were collected
by Mr. Coleman for our Commis
sioner, at the New Orleans Exposi
tion. The seeds have been given
in charge of the Royal Hawaiian
Agricultural Society, and Mr. Jae
ger has undertaken the task of their
distribution. They include buck
wheat and most of the cereals ; blue,
timothy and other grasses ; clovers,
rice, fiax, peas, beans, and nuts of
various sorts ; corn and millet ; to
bacco, locust and pine. Mr. Jaeger
has also for distribution Sea Island
cotton seed, on behalf of the Gov
ernment, and seeds of fodder plants
lately received by Judge McCully
from Baron von Mueller, of Mel
bourne. CHINESE CAMBLINC DEN RAIDED.
About nine o'clock this morning a
successful raid was made by Mar
shal Sopor and olIlcersFchlbehr and
Kauhane, upon a Chinese gambling
den in a yard off Hotel street. The
Marshal nnd Kauhano entered the
place from Hotel street, whilo Fclil
behr going in from Meek street com
manded the rear approaches. It is a
thiclcty populated yard, yet the
officers succeeded in surprising their
gamo effectually. Marshal Soper
burst open the door that was closed
in his face, and the bar being re- 1
moved from the back door olllcer
Fehlbehr was admitted. It takes 1
four men to run the kind of game '
that was in progress, but no less
than eight Chinamen wera found
upon the premises, These, together
with the gambling accessories and
two sums of money aggregating
nearly 17, were seized and taken to
the Police Station. The den is lo
cated in a small room on tho second
story of a house looking out on a
square court, and on several pre
vious occasions the police have
caught gamblers there.
A HOUSE OURNED.
Last night, shortly nftcr eleven
o'clock, the Hie bells rang for a
house on fuc in a lane off Ntiuanu
ntrcel. It was a cottage owned by
Mrs. Bachelor, of Wnlluku, Maui,
and it was too far gone to save bo
fore the brigade reached the spot.
Engine Company No. 4 got first
water on the llames, but before it
ariived Mr. J. J. Carden, who lives
alongside, kept the fire from spread
ing in that direction by playing with
a garden hose, on Hie side of the
house and fences next his house.
Pailly as a result of Mr. Garden's
effoils, the wall on that side is tho
only pari of the collage left stand
ing. Fortunately there was no wind
blowing, so that the liiemcn had a
comparatively easy time 111 prevent
ing the flames from spreading. Tho
cottage was vacated by Mrs. Ward
last Saturday, and Mr. Wiseman had
a new tenant ready to go in to-day.
There was no insurance on the pro
perty, and there is no clue to the fire's
origin. Officer Mchrtcns is praised
for very gallant conduct by persons
who saw him working at tho fire.
The crowd at the sccno arc lopro
scnlcd to have acted in a rather un
disciplined manner, persisting, many
oftlicin, in going where they were
in the way of the firemen. Some
who did not know the lay of the
land, in trying to get to the fire, got
into a cul dc sac, their way barred
by fences, and had to retrace their
THE CONGO FREE STATE.
This was the subject at the Fort
Street vestry last evening. A short
paper was read by Horace Hall on
the results of Mr. Stanley's explo
ration of "the Congo basin. The
river is live miles wide at its mouth,
and is estimated to discharge 2,025,
000 cubic feet of water every second.
In the great basin of this river,
there arc about 00,000,000 inhabi
tants, a large proportion of whom
arc cannibal savages.
The next paper was by Mrs. W.
W. Hall, and had reference to the
mystery in which the African conti
nent was enshrouded for ages, giving
a summary of the efforts made in
modern times for the solution of tho
mystery, Mr. Stanley having crown
ed these efforts with success in his
celebrated expedition. Stanley
reached the mouth of the Congo on
the 1 1th August, 1879, and now a
Free State is being organized under
the auspices ofthc King of Bel
gium. The Congo is a navigable
river for 0,000 miles of its course,
but no one can realize the patience,
perseverance and toil that had to bo
expended to discover this piece of
information to the world. The new
state adopts for its standard the
blue flag and star carried by Stan
ley in his explorations. The ar
rangements are directed by a so
ciety known as the African Interna
tional Association. The consent of
the natives has been obtained,
through their chiefs, to the new
order of things. AVith respect to
the climate, Mr. Stanley was quoted
as saying that the climate is not
more severe than that of other hot
countries if proper conditions arc
Mrs. McCully read a paper on
the missions of Central and Western
Africa. The paper contained a large
amount of information on this inter
esting subject. What is true of one
tribe of the natives of Africa is
generally true of them all. The
natives of the Longo lJasin show no
particular opposition to the progress
of Christianity, but they assume an
attitude of indifference to it, a phase
of character which missionaries find
much more difficult to moot than
pronounced opposition. Of fifty
missionaries sent to the Congo, there
remain there, at latest accounts,
twenty-six. The language has been
reduced to wiiting, and the first
engine of civilization sot in motion,
as usual, is the printing press. The
climate i3 said to be fatal to mission
aries, but the worst drafts upon
the vitality arc made by the mud
houses, six feet high, with mud
floors, in which they arc obliged
to live. Remarks were made by
several persons present, the princi
pal items of which were that in tho
constitution of the Congo Ficc State,
special provision is made for the
protection of missionaries, and that
on the west coast of Africa the only
hospital in existence is under the
charge of the Roman Catholic
Church. Pastor Criizan closed the
discussion by alluding to there murk
able way in which, under Divine
Providence, Stanley was brought to
the front, at a critical time, to rou
der valuablo assistance in tho solu
tion of tho mysteries of the dark
