THE DAILY BULLETIN SUMMABY: HONOLULU, H. I., MONDAY, SEPTEMBER Id, 1885.
NEW. EQUIPMENTS OF DAHU COLLEGE.
Last evening a rcpicsonl alive of
the Bili.etin was given a pleasant
drive to and from Oahu College nt
runnliou, in 1'iinripal Merritt's
family carriage. It was a few
months since the writer had pic
viously visited the spot, and several
changes were noticeable even about
the exterior of the institution. The
lawn was remarked on the former
occasion to be very thickly wooded.
That great gale of' a mouth or two
ago, however, did some landscape
gardening without regard to the
rules of the books. Its operations
arc now apparent in more light fil
tered through the foliage, and in
several cords of wood the proceeds
of the wind's culling neatly piled
up against the town side stone wall.
A change made by the manage
ment, which greatly enhances the
appearance of the scholastic group
of buildings, is the removal of an
old wooden-wing that ran out from
the southwest corner of the building.
This has enabled the terrace on
which the latter block stands to be
extended the whole breadth of the
lawn. All the buildings on that side
arc thus given an unbroken frontage
on a common plane: on the left the
main building and its older adjuncts,
on the right the new Bishop Hall of
Science. Considerable improve
ments are bcine made on the Wai-
kiki side. The ground in rear of
the. Library building, flanking the
group in that direction, has been
graded. A corner of land mentioned
in our former dcsciiption has been
obtained from a neighboring estate,
and the college plot is being squared
up with a substantial stone boundary
fence in that quarter.
So much for the grounds. Kn
tcriug the Library, it is not neces
sary to be told that its intellectual
stores arc being replenished. A
large section of the shelves arc gor
geous in the gold ami color of mo
dem binding. Of the six hundred
volumes additional provided for,
050 have been received. They com
prise a wide range of literature, and
include many of the most recent
standard productions. There is a
wealth of history, a rapid glance
taking in Ilawlinson, Wilkinson,
Curtius, Freeman, Motley (all of
his works), Bancroft the revised
edition of his History of the United
States, Masson, "White, McCarthy,
Hildrcth (United States up to 1820,
C.vols.), Tyler's America, Green
(English People complete), Dr.
John Lord (Beacon Lights of His
tory, 5 vols.) There arc Stanley's
Dark Continent and his latest work,
The Congo and Founding of its
Free State; the revised edition of
the Middle Kingdom (China), by S.
Wells Williams ; Sir Saml. Baker's
travels ; different records of the II.
B. M.'s Challenger's cruise, and
other woiks of travel and explora
tion iu many lands. In English
Literature arc seen Morley's Men of
Letters, -Tainc's great history ami
Rolfe's Shakespeare. Fiction makes
a radiant exhibition Cooper, Ir
ving, Kingsley, Mrs. Stowc, Thack
eray, Charlotte Bronte, Miss Mulock,
Hugo, Lord Lytton, Dickens com
plete in 30 vols., and otlicis. Science
makes an imposing array of its
latest lights Dana, Schlicmann's
Troja, Ncweomb, Woolscy, Walker,
Bowen, Mill, Spencer (Principles of
Sociality), 17 volumes of Apple
ton's Scientific Series, Prof. Geo.
P. Marsh (Earth' as Modified by
Human Action, and Origin and His
tory of the English Language)
comprising archeology, astronomy,
cosmogomy, chemistry, philology,
political economy, etc. Carlyle's
translation of Mcister's Apprentice
by Goethe is another standard work
received. There is an extensive line
of the poets, including Faust, Bay
ard Taylor's Goethe, Bryant,
Foster's Cyclopedia 1st and 2nd
series, Whittier, Library of Rc
ligious Poetry, Dana, Emerson's
Parnassus, Stcadman .ami Lowell.
An inexhaustible mine of lexico
graphy is opened out to the student,
in the new stock: Stormonth's dic
tionary, got up ou the plan of fol
lowing a primary word throughout
its derivatives; Webster's Un
abridged, 1885 edition, with new
features; Worcester's Unabridged,
Crabbc's Synonymcs, Lippincott's
Pronouncing Gazetteer of the World.
The additions to the Library arc
being made through the medium of
A. L. Bancroft & Co., San Fran
cisco, whose execution of the con
tract so far leaves' nothing to be de
sired. Tho remaining 250 volumes
will likely arrive by next steamer.
Tho Bishop Hull of Science a
nohlo monument to the Hon, C. R.
Bishop's munificent regard for edu
cation is a handsome, substantial
structure of brick. It is entered by
a flight of concrete steps. The lofty
ceilings make the rooms look smaller
othcrwiso than they really are, but
make them remarkably airy and
light. Entrance is first made to the
lecture room, which is handsomely
furnished with a sloping gallery of
semi-circled seats. Students have
all a full view of the platform and
blackboard. The rails, posts, and
so on, arc in .beautifully polished
koa wood. Off this room, on the
left from tho platform, i9 the mu
jseum, the varied treasures of which
are not yet arranged. To the light
is a private study and laboratory
for tho science professor. In the
rear is tho Laboratory, which is fit
ted up with every convenience for
chemical cxpciimcntation,and de
monstration. Two long work-tables
arc furnished witn faucets and sinks,
gas pipes for instantaneous blasts of
fire, and any amount of shelves and
drawers for material. The base
ment is iloored throughout with con
crete, and its store-rooms are secure
in all respects for the preservation
of chemical stocks.
Prof. Van Slyke, the Professor of
Science, a master in both qualita
tive and quantitative chemistry,
from the University of Michigan,
will arrive on the steamer next
Tuesday. Mr. Bates, successor to
Mr. Sanford as professor of classics,
mathematics and ancient history,
arrived fiom Illinois on the 22nd
Willi all these new equipments
and reinforcements, Oahu College
undoubtedly takes a new departure
in its steady, upward progress. The
new session opens on the 14th hist.,
as will bo seen by advertisement in
this issue. Sept. 5th.
A FINE BUILDING.
A line addition has been made to
the mercantile architecture of the
city by Mr. Chas. J. Fisliel. This
new building, corner of Fort and
Hotel streets, is about completed.
The building is of brick covered
with cement, and stands on the site
of the store burned Jan. 21 last; is
two stories high, fronting tt) feet on
Fort, and 05 feet on Hotel street.
The inside is elegantly finished, and
fitted up. Each of the windows on
the lower Hat consists of a single
piece of ten foot plate glass, which,
the proprietor informed our reporter,
is the largest plate in the city. The
show glasses arc well arranged so
as to exhibit the goods with proper
effect and at the same time leave
plenty room for customers and sales
men to move about. For some two
weeks past Mr. Fishcl and his as
sistants have been engaged in un
packing and arranging their new
stock. The displays of staple and
fancj- goods are elaborate and ex
tensive. The millinery department
is in the upper fiat and is reached
by an easy stairway. Everything
in the millinery line to please the
most artistic fancy can be seen here.
A couple of large show cases on
this floor have a specially beautiful
spread of silk and velvet flowers,
and other fine specimens of the mil
liner's handiwork. The lady in
charge of this department shows an
exquisitely worked plush embroi
dered lambrequin of her own mak
ing, a very pretty article. The
whole establishment will be open to
the inspection of the public this
evening, when a promenade band
concert will be given. Sales will
not commence, however, until to
morrow. We congratulate Mr.
Fisliel on his new establishment and
wish him a long and successful
business career. Sept. 11th.

MUTUAL TELEPHONE COMPANY.
Tho annual meeting of the Mutual
Telephone Company's directors was
called for this morning, but up to
noon n quorum had not been obtain
ed. However, there was an informal
consideration of affairs by those who
did attend. From the report it ap
peared that tho receipts for the past
quarter exceeded the expenditure
by eight or nine hundred dollars.
For tho purpose of clearing off the
outstanding debt of tho Company, a
proposal to sell additional shares
found favor with the directors pre
sent. About 1,800 shares of the
authorized capital stock remain un
sold. In answer to an enquiry, a
member of tho Board said amalga
mation with tho other company is
not thought of. Sept., 2.

STORM ON M0L0KAI.
The steamer Jas. I. Dowsett brings
news of a severe blow at Molokai
last Saturday night. At ten o'clock
the wind came with n sudden blast
from the northeast, and it lasted for
an hour. Tho damage done is ex
tensive. The church at Kalaupapa,
which was dedicated by Dr. Ilydo
two days before the storm, was
bodily lifted from its foundation and
so wrecked as to make it unsafe,
and it is deemed prudent to have it
pulled down. Largo kukui trees two
or more feet in diameter and cypress
trees of huge dimensions were up
rooted and laid down, or the trunks
were snapped like pipe stems. At
Wnilau, on the steep incline of a
mountain side which was thickly
covered with trees of various sizes,
was a scene of utter ruin. Every
tree was blown down, nud it looked
as if an army of wood cutters had
been there, or the placo had been
swept by fire. At Mr. Meyer's
place there was great devasta
tion of trees. Mr. Meyer says ho
thinks the gale was local. It lasted
only an hour, but it was the most
severe that he had known since his
residence on the Islands, about -10
years. People who lived where the
wind was the strongest were greatly
frightened, and they say it was for
tunate that no vessel was there at the
time, as it would have been totally
destroyed. Sept. 12th.
MECHANICS' BENEFIT UNION.
The annual meeting of the Mecha
nics' Benefit Union was held last
evening. Two candidates were pro
posed for membership, and one
elected by ballot. The affairs of the
Union are in a flourishing condition.
Benefits to the amount of over $550
were expended last year. The funds
in the treasury at the present time,
approacli pretty closely to the sum
of $2,000. The ollicers elected for
the ensuing year, arc: President,
T. R. Lucas ; Vice-President, J. F.
Eckardt; Secretary, Win. Auld;
Treasurer, John F. Colburn ; Exe
cutive Committee, Chas. Lucas,
Geo. Norton, M. Colburn; Trus
tees, T. It. Lucas, John Colburn
and M. Colburn. It is proposed to
have a spread at next meeting.
Some time ago Capt. J. II. Brown
discovered between the- leaves of a
book, in the Y. M. C. A. library, a
picture of Honolulu in 1837. Bor
rowing it lie had it photographed by
Mr. Williams. A Bulletin reporter
got a look at it as Messrs. King
Bros, handed the photograph, neatly
framed, to its owner. The town has
the appearance of a scattered village,
the now elegantly built-up plains
presenting a front of grass huts.
The picture is really worth repro
duction in eolors on a larger scale
by one of our now resident artists.
"Those were the days," the Captain
remaikcd, "when you got up in the
morning thinking what you 4iad to
do, and then finding out that you
had to have a fight with about a
dozen Chinamen." Adding: "I
only wish there was the same feeling
among the foreigners now that ex
isted then. If you wanted a thou
sand dollars all you had to do was
to cross the street and ask your
neighbor for it, and lie didn't want
an I OU for it, cither."
A NEW INVENTION.
Mr. James G. Swan, Hawaiian
Consul at Port Townscnd, has dis
covered a process of making parch
ment out of kelp. A specimen of
the first he made of the article is
before us, and it seems to be capa
ble of being brought to a high
degree of finish. Whether it can
be made equal, for writing purposes,
to leather parchment or not, there is
no doubt it would be excellent for
many manufacturing purposes, such
as making bookboard, shoe linings,
printing cards and paper, albums,
etc. Mr. Hanks, of Wells, Fargo &
Co.'s express, lias given us the

A ROYAL BIRTHDAY.
This is tho forty-seventh birthday
nnnlvorsary of II. It. II. Princess
Liliuokalani, the heir apparent to
tho throne. At noon a salute was
fired from the shoio battery. This
afternoon, at four o'clock, n grand
luau will be hold at tho Princess's
Waikiki residence. Among tho gifts
presented was a pair of earrings, of
ivory and gold, by Mr. Win, Auld,
his own workmanship finished by
Mr. Spear, jeweler. They are in
the shape of palaoa (the peculiar
hook of a Hawaiian retainer's hair
necklace), and form a handsome
article of jewelry. A good many
flags are flying in honor of the occa
siona heap plenty being displayed
on the China Engine Co.'s stair. The
Bulletin unites with tho community
in extending congratulations to II.
The Prince's Own honored the
'event, by holding a luau at their
armory this afternoon. All around
the sides and in the center of the
hall were flags, flowers and ever
greens. A table ran the length of
the room, crossed by another at the
head. Upon the extensive board
abundance of refreshments were pro
vided. Capt. Kaalia, of Company
A., P. O., presided, and there were
present, among others, Capt. W.II.
Aldricli, first and second Lieu
tenants McLcod and Hcbbard, of
the Honolulu Itillcs; Adjt. John
Baker, of the Household Guards,
and Capt. Jas. Boyd of Company C,
P. O., and a few invited guests
from other military companies. All
wore fatigue uniform, and the ut
most jollity held sway. Sept. 2.
THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.
There was a full attendance at the
regular meeting of the Board of Re
presentatives of the Fire Department
last night. Second Assistant En
gineer, Julius Ascli, presided. Rout
ino business was despatched, the con
clusion in the Chinese clllgy case be
ing that the investigating committee
should be discharged. This, it will
be remembered by many, refers to
. an clllgy of a Chinaman hung on
Engine Co. 2's house, after the
electipn, evidently out of bad feel
ing. A discussion on-the bell in the
central tower took place. It was
said that the bell could not be heard
as far as it should, on account of
being improperly hung. The exe
cutive committee was directed to
have the required alteration in this
regard made as soon as possible.
It was mentioned, in the course of
the discussion, that Chief Engineer
Nott, during bis present visit to the
States, would endeavor to ascertain
what is the best general alarm
system. Sept. 4th.
AN ACRE'S WEALTH.
In a case tried before Judge
Bickerton this morning, of damages
for unlawful ejectment, brought by
two Chinese against a native land
lord, one of the plaintiffs swore an
acre of ground yielded them thirty
dollars a day in vegetables. The
judge failed to perceive the value
of such a statement to send abroad
for immigration purposes. On the
contrary, lie considered the testi
mony of a man who could swear to
such an absurdity as unworthy of
credence. The defendant, however,
made out the case for the plaintiffs
by a frank acknowledgment, in
effect, of having taken the law in
his own hands, and ten dollars of
damages were adjudged against
him. Deputy Attorney-General
Whiting, on bearing of the China
man's appraisement of an acre's
value, naively remarked that he
would like, at that rate, to go into
vegetable-raising himself if he
could get anybody to do the work.
So say we all. Sept. 10th.
THE KINAU REPAIRS.
Last night there was a clang of
hammers on the bottom of the Ki
nau. The rivets of the plates to be
renewed have to be cut out with
cold chisels. It gives a good idea
of the value of the marine railway
to this port, to see such a heavy
iron vessel raised high and dry, and
effectively repaired at much' less ex
pense than would be incurred in
sending her, to the Coast. To show
with what facility largo vessels can
be handled on those works, it is
enough to state tho facts of hauling
tliis one up. The steamer James 1.
Dowsett was launched from the
ways at 12 o'clock noon on Monday,
and at !J o'clock in the afternoon
the Kinau was in her place ready
for the repairing operations. When
it is known that a large amount of
labor wa.s necessary in shifting bilge
and keel blocks, to adapt them to
the different size and shape of tho
two vessels, this expedition is all
tho more remarkable. Sept. iltli.
FISHING FOR OPIUM.
On tho Mariposa Hearing the en
trance buoy last Tuesday, a large
box was seen to bo lowered overboard,
a splash was heard, and the box
soon disappeared. Information was
given to the police. Yesterday,
Deputy Marshal Dayton, with police
ollicers and a largo staff of native
divers, went to the place. After
several attempts to fish up the prize,
they returned to town disappointed,
This would appear to be done as a
hoax by employees on board of the
Mariposa. -Sept, 10th.
