Of Major Dane's lecture in San

intelligent and interesting. Major
Dane was a signal officer in many of
the naval engagements he described,
and has clearly made a. close, special
study of all other American naval
battles, which gives him an equal
familiarity with all of his subject."

About a month ago, somebody

found the place open. Some thief
had entered by the back window,
and when inside unbolted the front
door. No tools have been missed
yet, but Ryan thinks some are gone
and will be missed in time. The
place was thoroughly locked Satur
day night, and the person that en
tered must have been well acquaint
ed with the building.

A DANGEROUS FIRE.
ULAZINO GA80MN1: IN A WOODEN
4 I1UILT QUAUTEK.
About 11.20 o'clock this forenoon
a commotion started on Queen street,
and in the exclamations of a run
ning crowd could be heard tho word
"firel" From the door of this
office could be seen flames issuing
from Geo. W. Maefarlane & Co.'s
Btoragc yard, corner of Queen and
Richards streets, opposite Mrs.
Singer's bakery. The fire bells
were soon clanging, followed speedi
ly by the ding-dong of hose reels
and engines hastening to the spot.
Engine Co. No. 1 were on the ground
with their machine in about five
minutes, and, taking their station at
the plug on Richards, near Mer
chant street, got first water on the
flames, so far as the department was
concerned. Pacific Hose Company
was quickly at the scene on Queen
street, attaching their hose to the
plug, corner of Alakca street. That
antiquated device was possessed of
the stubbornness of its kind, how
ever, and for full fifteen minutes
resisted the most strenuous tugging,
jerking and twisting of the hose
men, some of whose hands and arms
were bruised and bleeding before
tho recalcitrant screw was started.
China and Mechanic Engine Com
panies also came by way of Queen
street, but happily their services
were not required. Before any
water from the brigade reached the
flames, Mrs. Singer had rushed
across the street and heroically plied
a bucket, and with good effect, as
sisted by three or four native work
men employed in the yard. The
men might have done better service,
bad they not been in a panic, by
making use of a garden hose and
faucet at hand.
The food of the flames was gaso
line, a large quantity of 'which was
stored in the yard. A small shed,
some boxes, and a piece of fence
were thoroughly charred, and a few
trees had their foliage witheied.
Something like ono hundred gallons
of the inflammable fluid was de
stroyed. The firo originated in this
wise: Workmen were filling 12 gal
Ion cans with the gasoline from large
tanks holding 120 gallons. Mr.
James Nott was engaged in sealing
the filled cans with solder. His
small soldering furnace was at the
foot of a declivity, at the summit
of which was the tank being pumped.
By some means a can was upset
and, rolling down the inclino, shed
its contents on tho lire. - Instantly
the tinsmith found himself in tho
midst of a deluge of flames, and it
is astonishing that he escaped with
whole skin and garments. In a few
moments everything inflammable on
the spot was blazing, and flames
from half-a-dozen unsealed cans of
the fluid united in broad sheets of
fire, that leaped skyward and threat
ened to involve tho neighboring
buildings in a conflagration. The
gathering crowd, being aware of the
dangerous nature of the combusti
bles in the yard, stood at more res
pectful distance from the fire than is
usual on such occasions. They re
treated still further, not standing
upon the order of their going, when
a furious burst of llamo went roar
ing higher than the topmost branches
of tho trees. This spurt was occa
sioned by tito fire catching the rem
nant of gasoline in the largo tank,
causing it to go off in a flash and
hurl the pump from the bunghole
high into the air. Besides this, the
contents of six of tho 12 gallon cans
were consumed, some of them going
off with a good deal of' force.
There were stored in the yard, at
tho time tho fire started, fourteen
large tanks of 120 gallons, and fifty
cans of 12 gallons. Usually no
inure than ten tanks are in that
place, but a consignment of four
teen tanks arrived by the brig W.
G. Irwin yesterday. They were in
a leaking condition, and henco it was
decided to transfer their contents to
the smaller receptacles the opera
tion that resulted so disastrously,
DEPARTURE OF THE MARIPOSA.
To-day the departing mail steamer
Mariposa attracted the usual motley
throng to tho Oceanic wharf. The
Royal Hawaiian Band's presence,
after its vacation of a month, gave
zest to the parting scene, mollifying
those who had to see friends dcpait,
and fortifying those who left for
tlicir struggle with Neptune as well
as against their reciprocating sadness
with friends left behind. Among
the departing passengers who were
decked with flowers were the Misses
McAllister, Capt. Ayers and wife.
Mr. and Mrs. Rodanet' left by the
steamer for Paris to get a fortune
left for him and a De prefixed to his
name. They expect to return to
Honolulu in about a year. Mis.
Ebling, tho heroine of a recent
lamentable tragedy,. has also gone.
The list of cabin passcngeis was not
large, and the cargo was about the
smallest tho Mariposa ever took.
The Post Office despatched by the
steamer 5,110 letters and 1,917
packages of papers.
To the great dismay of the drone,
and the joy of the ambitious juvenile
Honohiluan, the schools, public and
private, re-opened yesterday, after
Fort street repot Is 25 recruits
added to the force. The pupils of
the previous session arc mostly all
in. Some, however, will answer
" absent " to their names until after

At the Royal School, Rev. Mr.
Mackintosh's room is in charge of
Miss L. L. Moore, whose place in
the adjoining room is supplied by
Miss Andrews, Miss Bertha von
Holt taking Miss Andrews' place up
stairs. The attendance in the prim
ary departmcnts'is pretty full. The
advanced departments are, as yet,
somewhat thin, aud ftfill not be in
full blast for a week, or more. Six
or seven of the former students in
the principal's room havo entered St.
Louis College. No improvements
have been effected in the furnitute.
The same old ink-begrimmed desks
threaten to do duty for some time
Tho Pohukaina Girls' School
makes a good showing in the princi
pal's department, although a con
siderable number has yet to come in,
some from visits to tho other islands.
Mrs. Wood's room has a full quota
of pupils, although only about half
the number in attendance previous
to the holidays are present. Some flvo
names have been added to the roll.
When tho absentees report them
selves, which will probably bo in
about a week, this department will
be as before, not overcrowded, but
packed, the pupils wedged in in twos
and threes where they ought to be in
ones. No steps have been taken to
provide another teacher, though the
necessity for increasing tho staff is
not only apparent but urgent.
Tho Punahou Preparatory opens
with a large attendance, there being
ninety-five already enrolled, of whom
twelve are new-comers. Ten of the
advanced pupils of this school before
