death known than the house was
draped and festooned in mourning
from top to bottom, and its colors
placed at half-mast. Later on three
very good piclures of the General,
showing him at as many periods of
his life, were framed and hung out

Mil. "Wiseman has added a beauti
ful cigar store in a sung front corner
of his spacious ofllccs, where he
will keep a choice selection of cigars,
tobacco and cigarettes. The name
"Central" is appropriate, from the
position of the stand in the center
of Campbell's block and hence of
business circles. Lovers of the
weed will doubtless make a steady
run on the fragrant Havanas of the
"Central." This addition to the
establishment will in nowise interfere
willi the general business agency,
as Mr. "Wiseman will continue to
give his undivided attention to that
department, which he has so ably
established and conducted during
the past six years.

SMALL-POX REPORTED ON MAUI.
By the C. E. Bishop the Board of
Health was notified that a Japanese
laborer was sick on Hie Beciproeity
Sugar Co.'s plantation, liana, Maui,
with symptoms of small-pox. The
tug Elcu was promptly despatched
to liana, leaving Honolulu at two
o'clock yesterday afternoon, with
Dr. Trousseau and Oiliccr Reynolds
of the Board of Health, also Dr.
Bawson, Government physician at
liana, on board. The latter only
arrived hero on Saturday last, and
there was no sickness at liana when
he left. It is not believed by mem
bers of the Board that the case is
small-pox, owing to the month that
has elapsed since tho Japanese were
exposed to contagion.
A BITING BURGLAR.
Sunday morning Mr. J. Ahrcns
found a burglar in his room, and
had an adventure with the rascal.
The room is one of a series of lodg
ing apartments off Hotel street, be
tween Fort and Niuianu. Hearing
a noise in his chamber shortly before
daybreak, Mr. Ahrcns jumped out
of bed, and stumbled over a man
crouching on the floor. The intruder
attacked him viciously, hitting him
on the head and biting his arm.
Calling out he wakened the neigh
boring roomers, who on coming to
his assistance met and caught the
burglar Ihen retreating. Thoy let
him tio, however, when he made a
movement as if to use a knife. The
fellow apparently had entered by a
small window, beneath which out
side an old chair was found, evi
dently placed for a step. A milk
man and a butcher both saw tho
man taking flight, and the latter left
a boot and his hat behind. Notice
being given the police, in less than
two hours they caught the burglar
among some banana trees near
Smith's bridge. Ho is ii negro
named George Summers, and this
morning, in the Polico Court, he
was remanded until Wednesday,
A BIG AUCTION.
There can be no question that
the principal event of the season in
auction circles was (lie. sale on Fri
day at the residence of Mr. AV.
Seaborn Luce. Carriages in groat
numbers began to move tip the Val
ley at nine o'clock, followed by
Dotld's busses, until at ten the
house was well-lllled with the bcsl
citizens of Honolulu. His Majesty
honored tue occasion with his pre
sence, and the Cabinet was repre
sented by His Ex. C. T. Guliek and
lady, and Mrs. Neumann.
The beautiful house and lot were
first offered, but found no bidders
at the upset price of ten thousand
dollars. Later in the day they were
sold by Mr. Adams at private alo
to Mr. J. T. AVatcrliouso for $0,500
The sale of furniture, bric-a-brac,
etc., went on very briskly until
12.30, when an intermission of ten
minutes was had for lunch, and tho
sale was then continued until 1.30
r. xi., when everything was sold.
The prices realized were very good,
and it is only Justice to say that this
is due to the perfect management of
the sale by Mr. Adams, and his able
assistant, Mr. Morgan, who has de
veloped unusual ability as an auc
tioneer. Mrs. AVaterhouse purchased
two very handsome ebony side tables
at SG5 each. Mrs. Guliek was the
purchaser of a pair of Japanese
bronze urns at S75. Four easy
chairs in satin sold for S32."0 each;
six Vienna chairs for $20 each. Hon.
S. Parker bought a carved ebony
table for S37.00. A beautiful pai'r
of Japanese vases were sold to Mrs.
Guliek for 8-lu. The Chinese dinner
set brought $195, going to Mr. Jas.
Campbell. The aviary, with -10
birds, was sold for $100, and the
fernery for $110. The sale amounted
to $5,010. which is the largest that
has ever been held in this place.
THE POH0IKI DISASTER.
To Mr. Mark Robinson wc arc
indebted for the following report:
The schooner Pohoiki left Pohoiki
on Sunday morning, July 2Gth, at
10 o'clock, with fl cords of wood
and 3 boat loads of stone ballast.
On account of the stress of weather
the Pohoiki set sail for Kona for
shelter with the intention of return
ing to Pohoiki. At 12 noon Sun
day, two hours after starting and
when about five miles off land, the
captain ordered all sails to be low
ered and lashed. The vessel could
not be kept before the wind and a
large wave struck her broadside and
threw her on beam ends. Her cargo
shifted, and as she lay on her side
gradually filling, the crew managed
to get the small boat right side up
and afloat. The captain and five
men had just got into it, when
another large wave came, the Poho
iki went under, and the small boat
was capsized, throwing them all out.
AVhen they came to the surface all
answered their names except the
captain's wife and one of the crew.
One of the sailors secured three oars
and tied them together with his
shirt. The survivors clung to this
frail support to preserve their
strength, and while thus clinging
one of them was bitten by a shark
on the shoulder. He did not utter
a sound of agony for fear of causing
terror among his friends. He only
shifted his position. The captain
then cried, " My leg is bitten." It
proved that a piece was taken off
his right leg below the knee. Then
he received a bite on the shoulder.
Another man lost a portion of his
arm. AVhile the' were in this pre
carious condition, some of the sail
ors got hold of the ship's boat and
righted it. All hands got in, Hie oars
were saved and when the storm abat
ed they bailed out water and dressed
their wounds. The captain died on
the following Tuesday morning, and
as the boat was making no headway
the sailors became superstitious, and
after praying over the corpse in
their native fashion they cast it into
On Wednesday morning the boat
grounded at Kalckakua. The sur
vivors having been without food for
more than two days were completely
exhausted. Dr. B. O. Baker, of
Kalckakua, did all he could for tho
sufferers and the natives were kind
to them, giving them clothes and
other comforts. The four men re
turned by tho fatcamcr AV. G. Hall
yesterday morning. The two injured
ones wero taken to the Hospital and
are doing well.
THE PROPOSED GRANT MEMORIAL.
In pursuance of a notice In tho
Daily Uui.i.ctin-, a meeting of
Americans was held at Hie Hawaiian
Hotel on Saturdaj' evening. Con
sidering tho short notice which it
was possible to give, the attendance
was very good. His Excellency
Geo. AV. Merrill, United States Min
ister, at whoso request the meeting
convened, was unanimously called
to tho chair, and stated the object
to .bo the taking of such measures
as might bo agreed upon for com
memorating in a suitable manner
the death of America's greatest
soldier. Dr. J. S. MeGrew was
chosen Vice President of the meet-
ing, and Mr. R. 5. Smith, of the
Saturday Press, Secretary.
Some preliminary discussion hav
ing taken place, and a resolution
and an amendment providing for
the holding of memorial services at
a specified time and place having,
with the consent of the movers,
been laid on the tabic, a motion was
made by Dr. Rodgers and adopted
unanimously that suitable memorial
services in honor of General Grant
be held at such time and place as
may be agreed upon, it being under
stood that as early a date as possi
ble should be selected. It was
moved and carried that a committee
of five should be appointed by the
chair to make the necessary arrange
ments. From the various names
suggested by those present the chair
selected the following: Dr. J. S.
McGrcw, Dr. N. B. Emerson, Mr.
U.VW. Laino, Dr. C. T. Roduers
and Mr. J. A. Hopper. The chair
man and secretary of the meeting
were, added to the committee and
the meeting then adjourned.
The committee as above consti
tuted has since met, Dr. McGrcw
acting as Chairman and Mr. Smith
as Secretar. It was decided to
hold the proposed services at Fort
Street Church on Thursday after
noon, August 13th, at 3 o'clock.
The various sub-commitlces on
music, speakers, decorations, etc.,
have been appointed and the parti
culars of the programme will be
announced as soon as the necessary
arrangements as to details can be
made. It is the wish and expecta
tion of the committee that Americans
as well as all others who may be so
disposed will close their places of
business on the afternoon of the
services. Mr. Lainc having asked
to be excused, Mr. P. C. Jones was
appointed a member of the commit
tee in his place.
