are deserving ones. The subject
will be, " Grant the Soldier and
Ok Sunday morning last, between
1 and 2 o'clock, the store of a China
man named Tong Wo, three or four
doors from the ilrst bridge, Nuuanu
Valley, Waikiki side, was burglar
ized. Entrance was. made by a side
window, and the robber canicd off
blankets, clothing, several dollars
cash, canned salmon and other
things. The Chinese occupants, al
though living above and at the rear
of the store, heard nothing. A
horse's tracks were visible beside tho
building in the morning. '
" Major Dane's lecture was one
of his grandest efforts. His subject
'Constantinople, Queen of the
Levant' was one he could scarcely
do justice to sliort of a regular
scries of lectures. His graphic des
cription of the Bosphorus, a bird's
eye view of the city and its environs,
like that of the exterior and intciior
of the government and public build
ings and palaces, was exceedingly
interesting and instructive. As he
took his audience through several of
the finest mosques, and described
them in all their splendor and mag
nificence, almost equaling the. tem
ple of King Solomon, he had his
audience so completely enthused that
they could hardly realize that? they
were over six thousand miles away
from the city of the Crescent."

THE ALLIE ROWE.
Shortly after the Honolulu brig
Allie Rowo, Capt. Holland, arrived
in Hongkong, she was stripped,
caulked and coppered at a cost of
$1,200. Afterwards she got a
83,000 charter to Tientsin, $lj500
being paid in advance. Tho cargo
was insured for $70,000. When
about ten miles out of Hongkong
tho brig encountered a severe gale,
which caused her to leak so badly
that sho was compelled to put back
to that port. Sho was with difficulty
kept afloat. Tho Allie Rowo had been
surveyed in Hongkong and a first
class certificate granted her, which
her agents here, Messrs. Freeth &
Peacock, have received. Tho latter
are satisfied that the vessel is all
right, and will re-appear in Hono
lulu harbor in due time. .
A BEAUTIFUL BANNER.
The Honolqlu Commandery No.
1, Knights Templar, have received a
banner from Cincinnati. It is made
of whito satin with a gold fringe,
and is about three and a half feot
long by about two and a half feet
wide. On one side, in the center,
is a native girl with a kahili in her
hand, and leis about her head and
over her shoulder, In tho same
picture is Diamond Head and tho
tea for a background, making the
native girl appear in bold relief.
Tho picture is in a circular form
with a bolder of flowers, On the
other side, In gilt letters, aro the
words, " Bo thou faithful unto death
and I will give thee a crown of life,"
forming a circle, in the center of
which is a crown and cross. On
each lower extremity is a cross, and
between tha crosses a skull and
cross-bones. The banner is attached
to a long pole, with a gilt ball above
the banner, and above the ball a
double cross. The whole article is
very beautiful, and he who carries it
will have cause to be proud.
THE FARINI OPERA.
The following letter was received
by Mr. Wiseman, last mail, from
" Dear Sir: Have just directed
a letter to Miss Jennie Winston, one
of tho most charming sopranos in tho
country. Should I closo a contract
with her, I shall bring her as an
additional artist with mc to Hono

penscs are enormous, the fares alono

All 1 ask is to make sufficient profit
to repay mo for my outlay and trou

In reference to the above, it may
be stated that S2,010 has been sub
scribed for tho object in question.

AN UNREAL ESTATE.
A wealthy native dropped upon
an auction sale of building lots the
other day. He bad never been to
view the property, but seeing many
sagacious "business men bidding
thought he would take part in tho
fun. " Going, going, gone," and
lie was the possessor of a good slice
of realty. Enamored at the good
fortune of having obtained a bar
gain, he went out into tho wilderness
to view the manor of which he had
become seized. Climbing a rugged
knoll by the lines of the plan, the
prospect of his new property sud
denly broke upon bis vision. It
was not the first time it broke either,
for a more broken piece of real
estate could not be found this side
of the Nuuanu Pali. His lot, to be
brief, panned out before his eyes as
'a vast gulch a sort of vacuum pan,
without the sugar. Though in
pleasant places, the lot had fallen
too hard, ana become ruptured in
twain. Now the puzzle that per
plexed this landed proprietor became
one of how to utilize his bit of
sequestered landscape. ' He might
fling a suspension bridge, rivalling
the New York-Brooklyn wonder,
over the chasm, and get his value
out of tolls from bis fellow-colonists.
By damming it (which, by a pun
ning construction of the word he has
really done), he might be able to
sell Honolulu a much-needed addi
tional water supply. A roof thrown
over the gaping void would convert
it into a big abattoir, meet for mak
ing meat of the cattle on the ad
jacent ranches an establishment
that the neighbors would be glad to
take off ins hands at any price. At
last accounts the purchaser of tho
airy lot had not reached a decision
as to its best utilization. He thinks,
however, that the matter would not
trouble him a particle, had he gone
to see the property before instead of
after tho sale.
GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC.
THIRD ANNUAL CAMPFIRE OP .THE
OEO. W. DE LONG POST.
Last evening the third anniver
sary of the organization of'tho Geo.
AV. De Long Post, G. A. R., was
celebrated in tho Post headquarters
on King street the beautiful rooms
of Harmony Lodge, I. O. O. V.
There was a fair muster of members
present, also a number of invited
guests, namely :
Comrades Past P. C, R. W.
Laine; Post Commander, N. B.
Emerson, M. D. ; Senior V. Com.,
Jas. T. White: Q. M., R. Jay
Greene; Chaplain, S. McKcague;
Adjutant, F. L. Clarke; Qomrades,
Jerry Simmonson, C. P. James, V.
V. Ashford, W. F. Williams, J. II.
Lovejoy, T. K. McDonnell, L. Adler,
Win. McCandless, Jona. Austin, T.
II. Boehme, E. C. Webb, W. II.
Placo, J. D. Conn, and (Rev.) J. A.
Guests Ills Majesty the King,
His Ex. Governor Dominis, Hit Ex.
U. S. Minister Resident Merrill,
Mr. E. II. Allen, Hawaiian Consul
General at New York ; Major Dane,
Hon. W. C. Parko, Mr. I. F. Dil
lingham, Mr. J. A. Hopper, J.
1). Sullivan, and local press repre
sentatives. In the ante-room, which was hand
somely decorated with American
flags and the Hawaiian flog in con
spicuous position, two long tables
were spread. Tho edibles were an
imitation of camp fare pork and
beans, coffee and hard tack served
in tin pots and pans ; but as a con
cession to tho luxuiious tastes of
those who only knew the diet of
peaceful times, or perhaps as sym
bolical of the present piping times
of peace, there were provided tooth
some sandwiches and cake, and the
best quality of ginger ale and cream
soda. While awaiting a few late
comers, the company conversed in
'little groups in the main room. Tho
eclipse on the moon created an
agreeable diversion, being visible
from the windows. The coincidence
of tho phenomenon with the camp
lire was not deemed an ill-omen, if
indeed it was not regarded as com
plimentary to tho merry martial
blaze. When the call to rations was
made, the company speedily ranged
themselves round the table, aud
were promptly served by'S. V. C.
White and Q. M. Greene, who dex
terously ladled out the initial course
of beans. Good-humor and not a
little brilliancv of wit marked the
proceedings at the festive board. A
feast of reason and flow of soul fol
lowed the martial banquet.
Commander Emerson, in a neat
speech, referred to the Geo. W. De
Long Post as the one furthest re
moved from the national centre. In
celebrating this the third anniver
sary of the Post with this little
campflrc, he feared the intend
ed imitation of camp fare was
not very successful. Here was a
table raised from the ground, and
there were dainties that would have
been an astonishing addition to the
commissariat of the field. There
they were often glad to have in
dulged in tho luxury of raw turnip.
He welcomed the Governor of Oabu,
who had been their friend, kind to
them in all tbeir mutual relations.
The American Representative was
also here, in an informal way show
inghis sympathy ; andtheConsul,was
a member of the Post. He conclud
ed by proposing the health of the
President of the United States, and
tho toast was drunk with enthu
Comrade Cruzan proposed a toast
to "Hawaii nei," which was duly
honored. At that moment the Royal
Hawaiian Band paraded past the
hall, playing "Marching through
Georgia," and the jolly campers
responded with a rousing chorus.
Governor Dominis rose to thaiik
the company for the toast just
drunk. He bad never been at a
campfire before, neither been in
scenes of war, but thought he would
bo an excellent camp member if this
was camp life, Concluding, he pro
posed the health of the United
States Minister Resident. This was
heartily drunk, and while the Minis
ter was replying His Majesty en
tered and was conducted to a
position beside tho presiding officer.
His Ex. Mr. Merrill thought that
looked like a camp feast. It lacked
many things to make it a real camp-
lire. Drawing a contrast in Humor
ous terms between the reality and
the imitation, he went on to express
his gratification at having found a
. Post of the G.A.R. in this kingdom.
Ho was surprised that even fifty
comrades had strayed away down
here. Hearty applause greeted his
declaration that he intended to sever
his connection with his Post in Ne
vada and join the Geo. W. T)e
Long comrades. He was proud to
have been referred to as the re
presentative of America, but further
than that he was proud to feel, when
he met comrades anywhere and took
them by the hands, that ho could
call them representative Americans.
While proud of his country he was
prouder to have .helped to protect
the Union in tho greatest struggle
through which any country on earth
had ever passed. After a reference
to tho healing of tho t breaches be
tween tho two sections' of the nation,
and tho joining in fellowship with
their late foes, according tothc wish
of their late Commander, over that
hero's grave, tho Minister closed by
asking all present to join -in drink
ing the health of His Majesty. This
was done with great cordiality.
Major Dane, being called upon
for a speech, responded eloquenth'.
He told of a much desired introduc
tion he obtained in Turkey to Osman
Pasha, the hero of Shipla Pass and
tho defender of Plevna. At a mili
tary reviow in Constantinople, to
which that dignitary had invited
him, ho w;oro as a decoration upon
tho uniform lent for the occasion,
the badge of the Grand Army, mado
of the metal of cannon captured in
the war. Osman Pasha having, in
answer to an enquiry, been informed
of tho character of tho symbol, said :
"That is one of tho most noble
badges over worn. I congratulate
you, sir.' Aim no was prouuer oi
the badge then than ever before.
Major Dane, proceeding, with bril
liancy drew a contrast between the
simplicity of tho American system
of citizen soldiery and the formid
able armies of other countries.
Thirty days after the rebellion was
crushed not a man of tho army was
to be seen or heard from, all having
marched homo to tho occupations of
Comrade Cruzan began a charac
teristically sparkling speech by re
marking the saying that before a
man begins to go into his dotage he
goes into anecdotage, and then
linked a lino array of sentiment and
wisdom together with pointed anec
dotes of the war and tho Grand
Army. Adverting to the fraternal
union of loyal and rebel ofllcers of
the war over Grant's grave, he gave
a prophetic glance to the time when
the 37 or 38 stars in the flag would
bo 100, and the GO millions of peo
ple would be a nation of 100 mil
lions. He closed with a word for
the country in which their lot was
cast. There was more than mere
regard felt for it by America : there
was true friendship, and a determi
nation to protect the independence
Past Commander R. W. Laine
was the next speaker, and going
back of the " late unpleasantness,"
entertained the company with some
vivid reminiscences of the Mexican
war, of which he is a veteran. In
that affair were engaged several of
the generals who afterward fought
against the Union, including Davis
and Beauregard. Mr. Laine said
lie had been at many meetings, but
never at one that gave him more
pleasure than this one. lie had the
honor of havinc originated this
Post, that was, he believed, the
only one existing in a foreign coun
try. The speaker concluded by
'thanking His Majesty the King and
His Excellency the Governor, who
had always acted toward the Post as
if they could not do too much for
Quartermaster Greene, not willing
to be beaten on ancient " reminis
cences," went back to 1755, and
gave an entertaining account of a
campaign conducted by the five New
England colonies against the French
Comrade Jonathan Austin was
called upon, but excused himself
with thanks from making a speech,
as tho evening was now well ad
vanced. Mr. Jas. T. White was called
upon to wind up the proceedings
with a song. He complied with
much acceptance, beginning with
"Dandy Jim from Carolina," and
ending with a medley in about six
While the campfire burned, very
agreeable music was discoursed by
a band headed by Comrade Place.
