afternoon, to Mr. Julius II. Smith,
at the corner of King and Victoria
streets (Thomas square). Work
will not begin until Monday morn

laid. It is understood that this
move is to be taken for the purpose
of legally holding the charter, which
otherwise would lapse on the 29th

thus gain time in which to procure

THE HARD TIMES.
"People look suspiciously upon
two newspaper men in consultation,
but it loolcs more serious for tho
public when two auctioneers are in
a confab." In answer to this re
mark by a Bt'i.Li'riN representative
this morning, two prominent auc
tioneers said they were just lament
ing the dullness of business. "Peo-
'pic scorn to think that auctioneers
llourish best in bad times, but tho
fact is quite the contrary," said one
of them, the oilier assenting. "Al
though sales may be more numer
ous, people cannot bo got to buy at
reasonable prices." There is a
general complaint of dull business
about town. Still there is enough
movement of goods about the whole
sale stores to show that entire stag
nation has not yet been reached.
A TRAVELED VISITOR GOIND AWAY.
Mr. P. Petrovits, artist, of the
Royal Academy, after a stay of
about four months here, will leave

several excellent portraits of Their

uiaikelani. also of Hon. Mr. Gibson
and Mr. A. J. Cartwright, Sr. Mr.
Petrovits is a great traveler, having

A live land crab is to be seen at
the Union Feed Store, Queen street.
It was taken here from the South
Seas by the schooner Jennie Walker.
About two inches in diameter, in
cluding the shell, the animal crawls
with celerity about the floor. Its
color is red, thickly dotted with
white specks, and the shell in its
smooth pnrts has a pearly appear
ance. The crab has protuberant
eyes on the ends of narrow projec
tions, and is furnished with a good
pair of nippers, also a very delicate
set of feelers. It is very quick to
apprehend seeming danger, crawling
into its shell, when threatened, with
an alacrity similar to that with which
the writers of the Saturday Dress
retreat within the thick crust of
their egotism when cornered.
AGROSS THE ISLAND.
Mr. W. W. Hall returned
from a visit to Waimanalo.
ports the mill on that plantation still
grinding out from 12 to 13 tons of
sugar per day, and enough cane
assured to keep it going till the end
of the year. The prospects for
another immense crop arc very pro
mising. Mr. Hall went by the Nuu
anu Pali, but returned by way of
Diamond Head. Leaving Waima
nalo, Makapuu Point was passed
along shore. It is three miles from
Coco Head. From it the road runs
inland, passing Niu, Wailupc, Wnia
lac and Palolo valleys. Mr. Hall
was delighted with those valleys.
For pasture they arc much of a
kind with the Ilonouliuli ranges.
Springs of water abound everywhere.
At Waialae there is a splendid groTe
of cocoanut palms. From Waialae
the road strikes off past Diamond
Head, coming into scenes familiar to
the eyes of Honolulu people.
Y. M. C. A.
The regular monthly meeting of
the Y. M. C. A. took place last
evening, Mr. J. B. Atherton presid
ing. Reports of committees for the
past month showed that one social
reception had been held ; five ses
sions of Sunday morning Bible
class ; five Sunday evening services ;
five Saturday evening Temperance
meetiugs ; and twenty-two noon-day
meetings. Tho General Secretary
had attended .r3 religiuos meetings
connected with the association, and
made 70 calls. One voting and
two associate members were elected.
The entertainment committee re
ported that having secured Mr.
Arthur Brown, the English Tourist,
to lecture, Friday evening of this
week, the regular entertainment will
be omitted next week. Arrange
ments have also been made with
Major II. C. Dane, a popular Ameri
can orator, to give several lectures
during his proposed visit to the
islands. Mr. Dane may be expected
here on Saturday. The recent death
of Mr. Hip Moon, Chinese Colpor
teur, was referred to by several of
the members, and on motion of Mr. T.
II. Davies, a motion was passed to
record on the minutes an expression
of the association's sense of the
faithfulness of tho deceased and of
the great loss sustained, especially
by the Chinese, in his removal.
A DISASTER AVERTED.
A few days ngo a gang of natirc
laborers were employed at the Inter
Island Steam Navigation Company's
landing nt Kukuihaele, Hawaii, in
making repairs and improvements to
the buildings. Tho steam hoisting
machinery was in operation during
the day and a few live embers were
left in the furnace. At night the
laborers rested upon tho premises,
and observing tho remains of liro
decided to utilize them for cooking
a warm supper. Accordingly they
added fuel to the coals and soon had
a brisk lire under the boiler. There
was not much water in the latter,
and its conversion into steam was
consequently rapid. Seventy-five
pounds is tho maximum pressure to
which tho boiler had usually been
subjected. When the steam began
to hiss angrily through tho snfety
vnlvo, the natives, deeming the noiae
unpleasant, fastened down the lever.
In the quietness thus obtained they
were settling down to a comfortablo
night's rest, when a native employed
regularly at the landing, who knew
something about steam, providen
tially happened to come down to the
engine room. He found tho gauge
standing at about 1G0 pounds, and,
with no little display of courage,
ruihed to the furnace, cut away the
lnshings of the safety-valve and
raked the fire from beneath tho
boiler. There is no sayiog what a
fearful disaster must have occurred
at any moment, but for the timely
arrival and prompt action of this
MR. BROWN'S LECTURE.
The lecture to be delivered by
.Mr. Arthur Brown, artist, in the
Y. M. C. A. hall, at eight o'clock
this evening, promises to be one of
the most interesting platform de
liverances given in Honolulu for a
long time. The following is the
syllabus of lecture:

Mr. Brown's appearance in Lon
don was described by the Daily
JVercs as a very interesting illus
trated lecture. That paper said,
"It is not often that so remarkable
a region is described by the artist
who has illustrated it." 'The Philo
sophical and Archaeological Society
of Scarborough, England, said: "In
the present day, wo seem to have a
plethora of lectures and delinea
tions in the various branches of
society and polite literature ; but

A QUESTION OF POLITENESS.
It is gratifying to observe tho
newspapers varying the monotony
of politics by discussions of social
questions in which the public univer
sally feel an interest. The most
general of these questions is that
which relates to street-car polite
ness. The New York, Chicago, St.
Louis and New Orleans papers are
giving it so much attention that at
first blush it is difficult to compre
hend the cause. But as wo get into
it the point becomes apparent.
Which is the politest city from a
street-car point of view? Where
are the gentlemen most courteous to
ladies, and where do the recipients
of such polite attentions make the
most graceful acknowledgment of
it? Is it in the North or South,
East or West? There is no denying
that in some American cities street
car politeness is disappearing very
rapidly. Gentlemen do not always
rise when ladies enter a car, nor do
the ladies invariably recognize the
courtesy properly when they are
tendered it. In fact, some of our
contemporaries allege that the cause
of this decrease in gallantry on the
part of gentlemen is owing to the
lack of courtesy and politeness on
the part of the women themselves.
They mistake the act of a gentle
man in resigning his scat, and seem
to consider it not politeness, but a
duty; nnd they themselves never
think of doing what they expect of
others. No word, nor even a smile
of thanks, is ever given the gentle
man who, perhaps tired and fatigued
himself, resigns his place. And
when it comes to that lady to make
way for another she seldom does it.
If there is a vacant scat next her
she does not call the attention of the
gentleman to it who has vacated in
her behalf ; but, if she has an escort,
pulls him into it and leaves tho polite
gentleman standing. If she have a
child with her it, too, must bo niadu
comfortablo, and, although tho
mother has not paid for it, sho per
mits it to occupy the place of the
man who has been polite to her.
There aro some women who even do
more than this in street ears. They
will occupy two entire seats by
spreading out their elaborate skirts
or by sitting sideways. In fact, it
is amazing how rude sonic women
can be in public who in private cir
cles aro tho soul of grace and do
not receive the smallest attention
without prompt acknowledgment.
In San Francisco ladies enjoy special
favors, and they receive them by
returning politeness with politeness;
by giving thanks for a seat and by
observing tho same courtesies toward
others that they expect from the
men. S. F. JSxaminer,
