THE DAILY BULLETIN SUMMARY s HOXQLULtT, H. I WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 80, 188B.
THE UNION FOREVER!
On Thursday last the weddiug
bells did not ring out gtiily ntLihuo,
Kauah So far as known there was
lint one such bell there, and it was
so constructed that it was not possi
ble for it to ring. It was located in
the parlor of the lion. W. 11. Rice's
residence. The happy couple who
took their stand under it were Miss
Ada Tuner unil Mr. T. II. Gibson,
both of Waimea on this island. The
ceremony was performed by the
Rev. F. Richtcr. After a wedding
breakfast the bride and groom set
out for Kipukai to spend their
honeymoon at Mr. Rice's seaside
cottage. As they started a number
of "Rice birds" were noticed hover
ing around the carriage. Tins is
supposed to be a very favorable
omen even mom so than the cus
tomary shower of old shoes.
Mr. and Mrs, Gibson take with
them the best wishes of many
friends, including the representative
of the Bulletin, notwithstanding the
fact that he did not receive wedding
cake enough to dream over. May
health and happiness and all that
they most wish be theirs.
BREAKING UP HOUSEKEEPING.
Residents of 1'alauia, just below
the Reformatory School, worn dis
till bed in their early Saturday even
ing meditations, by a great noise of
scolding in a native's house on the
lane parallel to King street, towaid
the harbor. It had been no uncom
mon occurrence to have the quiet of
the night, and of daylight hour as
well, disturbed by the drunken lav
ings of the lord "of the same domi
cile. Hut he was even more violent
than usual upon this occasion, lie
scolded his wife in terrific manner,
at the same time assuring her that
he would not hurt her. lie only
wanted to show people, as he ex
pressed it, how powerful he was,
and to impress everybody with the
knowledge that he could do as, he
pleased "in his own house. It was
his castle, and, in default of in
vaders from without, he seemed to
consider it incumbent upon him to
demonstrate that fact by a grand
assault from within. Therefore,
laying hold of the window casement
with his powerful hand'-, he threw
his weight against it, and crash it
went out upon the ground. Then,
compelling his wife to assist him, he
tumbled all the scant furnishings of
their dwelling in a confused heap
into the vegetable gaiden. After
draping the pile with the floor mat
ting, he kicked the rear window out.
The scene of desolation now pic
sented by the cabin, however, did
not satiate his destructive fury, lie
went outside and began tearing up
the plants in the garden.
In the meantime a native neigh
bor, who had many times expostu
lated with the rullian for his violent
practices, warnedhiinth.it he should
be arrested for this aggravated,
wantoli outburst. Accordingly, the
neighbor hurried down town to the
Station House, and returned with
an olllcer in an express, just as the
crazy fellow had begun operations
among the vegetables. The express
stopped a little distance away, and
the olllcer, alighting, approached
unobserved in the rear of the de
spoiler. While the latter was stoop
ing down, with his hands full of
plants, the ollicer sprang upon him.
The prisoner struggled violently,
but some native men, who had been
concealed in an adjacent patch of
sugar cane, rushed to the assistance
of the policeman and the desperate
fellow was quickly overpowered and
.secured. He had threatened to use
a pistol upon anybody interfering
with him, which caused his neigh
bors to wateli him from under cover
of the cane. The weapon was
dropped in the struggle and picked
up by one of those on the scene.
"Frequently the neighborhood has
been annoyed, not to say terrified,
by revolver fusillades upon the pre
mises of this madcap. As the pri
soner was driven away on Saturday
night, he was followed by loud
lamentations from his wife, while
her neighbors, jeered at her for re
taining any regard for her dungeious
and worthless spouse.
A BEAUTIFUL BANNER.
The Honolulu Coinmandery No.
1, Knights Templar, have received a
- banner from Cincinnati. It is made
of white satin with a gold fringe,
and is about three and a half feet
long by about two and a half feet
wide. On one side, in the center,
is a native girl with a kahili in Iter
hand, and leis about her head and
over her shoulder. In the same
picture is Diamond IJead and the
gea for a background, making tho
native girl appear in bold relief.
The picture is in a circular form
with a border of flowers. On the
other side, in gilt letters, arc the
words, " Ho thou faithful unto death
. and I will give thee a crown of life,"
forming a circle, in the center of
which is n crown and cross. On
each lower extremity is u cross, and
between tho crosses a skull and
cross-bones. The banner is attached
to .1 long pole, with a gilt ball above
the banner, and above the ball n
double cross. The whole article is
very beautiful, and ho who carries it
wilj have cause to be proud.
THE YOSEMITE MASQUERADE.
Although the masquerade and
inaypolc dance at the Yoscmito rink,
.last evening, was a great success in
point of patronage, the performance
on skates was hardly tip to tho last
pmvious one. There was less origin
ality and not so much lichness of
costumes, and there was a falling off
in the number of skaters. How
ever, them was at least as much
fun in the affair, it was well
managed, and the maypole dance
succeeding the unmasking was
a very attractive addition to the
event. There were about a thou
sand spectators present, and ncaily
fifty skaters in costume. Several
hailoqiiins kept the audience in a
pleasant mood by their funny antics
throughout the whole performance.
The grand march, led by a little
shcpheid and shepcrdess, was well
executed. Sixteen young people
participated in the maypole dance,
and on the whole made a graceful
exhibition. The judges of the mas
querade weie Mrs. J. M. Oat, Mis.
Dr. McAllister and Mrs. Dr. Gray,
and Messrs. J. M. Oat, C. A. Brown
and Piriscr Sutton of the Alameda.
Their awards were as follows: Most
Megan t costume, Maid of Erin, Miss
Maggie Morgan; most original,
Music, Miss Fmily "Wall ; best sus
tained, Maikcl Woman, Frank Fer
ris; most comical, Nurse and Child,
Mcssis. Hall and Pfeiller. Notably,
among those who wore pretty cos
tumes wore: Miss M. Morgan, Miss
K. Wall, Miss R. Clarke, .Airs. Dr.
G. L. Filch, Miss Tregloan, Mr.
L. Scott, Mr. Rothwell, Mr. F.
Dai ling, Mr. F. Gardiner and Mr.
E. Williams. Mr. Wm. Wall, pit
cher for the Occauics, represented
a crow. lie flew about the rink
looking for grub, and winged his
way about the skaters to catch a fly.
The rink was tastefully decorated
for the occasion with flags, festoons,
pictures and lights. Among the
audience weic many marines from
the war vessels in port. Sept. 2Ctlr.
AN ANCIENT SEPULCHRE.
In the valley called Iao, back of
Wailuku, Maui, there is, in one of
its dark recesses, a cave which has
been known for a long time as being
one used in ancient times for burial
purposes. A while ago, a young
man exploring the valley came across
this cave, and llnding some human
bones in it he carried one off as a
memento of his visit. But, after a
while, he was told that the cave had
been used only as the burial place of
a family of high chiefs, and that it
was hardly the thing to disturb their
remains. The abstracted bone was,
therefore, replaced by the finder,
and since then the natives in Wai
luku, understanding that His
Majesty the King was desirous of
visiting the cave, have cut a road to
it, in anticipation of His Majesty's
visit before long. It will be a matter
of interest to many to have the his
tory of this burial place given, and
any authentic accounts regarding it
will be an addition of value to the
history of the past in these islands.

1 Sept. 18th,
AN UNREAL ESTATE.
i A wealth' native dropped upon
an auction sale of building lots the
other day. Ho had never been to
view the property, but seeing many
sagacious business men bidding
' thought he would take part in tho
i fun. "Going, going, gono," and
Jie was the possessor of a good slice
or realty, jumuiorcd at too goon
fortune of having obtaiued a bar-
gain, he went out into the wilderness
to view tho manor of which ho had
i,nr,n enfold. Cllmblnc a rumrcd
knoll by the lines of the plan, tho '
prospect of his new property sud
denly broke upon his vision. It
was not tho first time it broke cither,
for a more broken piece of real
estate could not be found this side
of (he 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, tho lot had fallen
too hard, and become ruptured irr
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 his fellow-colonists.
By damming it (which, by a pun
ning construction of tho 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 oir the ad
jacent ranches an establishment
that the neighbors would be glad to
take off his hands nt any price. At
last accounts the purchaser of the
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 the sale.
A Chinese cook, employed by
Wong Quai, who lives on the plains,
was robbed on Beretania street, at
Thomas Square, about ten o'clock
on Saturday evening, by native ban
ditti. Mr. W. Macrtcns, who lives
close to the Square, says that be
tween ten and half-past, while he
was seated, talking to a friend, in
his house, they heard cries of "Haul
in," on the street. Going out some
distance to the spot from whence
the cries came, they saw an express
going past without" stopping to find
out the cause of the disturbance.
They met a Chinaman, who was
shivering and shaking with fear, but
who could not talk English much.
He, however, managed to tell them
that he had been set upon by six
young natives he was positive in
this description of his assailants
w ho emptied his wallet of its con
tents of three dollars. When he
cried, "Haul in," they threw him
down and stuffed his mouth with
dirt. Although the express did not
stop, its appearance caused the rob
bers to run away ; yet if the occu
pants of the carriage had heeded
the alarm, one or more of the ras
cals might have been caught. Mr.
Maertcns saj-s there is great need of
police supervision in that quarter.
It is only two or three weeks since
his Chinese servant's quarters were
broken into and about three dollars
stolen, by a young kanaka who was
seen jumping over the fence and
getting away. Sept. 21st.
FERNS AND MOSSES.
Reference has previously been
made in these columns to the new
enterprise of fern collection and cul
ture, started by Mr. F. L. Clarke,
well and favorably known hitherto
as a journalist. Mr. Clarke has
that business now fairly under way,
and, it is gratifying to stale, is meet
ing with every promise of success.
He has already furnished tourists
and visitors with handsome collec
tions of the native ferns and mosses
of this group, which are exceedingly
rich in both beauty and variety.
Also he has orders ahead, and
further developments of his project
in hand, which will keep him very
busy until Christmas. Mr. Clarke
is having a fernery erected in rear of
Williams's photograph rooms, where
the beautiful ferns he procures from
the mountain fastnesses and vast
craters of the islands, will be ten
derly reared, so as to furnish a
supply right in tho capital. He has
shown us some delightful specimens,
which make up most esthetic cards,
procured during his recent explora
tions in the Halenkala crater. This
new enterprise seems destined to
give the group a lino advertisement
iir the world of botanical science,
and it is of no small importance as a
utilization of heretofore neglected
Marshal Soper and Olllcer Fehl
behr searched a lodging house at the
corner of King and Alakca streets
yesterday. Twenty-one tins of
opium were found in the room occu
pied by William II. Pond, an en
gineer from Wniluku, Maui. A half
pound Jin of opium was found in a
closet in James King's room. The
occupant was present, and seemingly
surprised at the discovery. While
the Marshal was waiting for the
search warrants, for Pond's room
and tho house, Pond slipped out.
He was shortly afterward arrested
by Olllcer Tell, who, with Officer
Mentions, had been sent for. Both
he and King were taken to lire
Station House. The histiiiamed has
been employed at tho United Carri
age Co.'s stand, and is well regarded
by his comrades. Sept. 19th.
HARD TO PLEASE.
A lady of exact mathematical
principles, went a-shopping one day
iir a city somewhere irr the vicinity
of Diamond Head. Taking up a
spool of thread, bearing the usual
"warranted 400 yards" label, she
wished to ascertain if it would stand
the test of actual measurement.
Tho obliging salesman proceeded to
unwind and measure the thread,
which held out to 1198 yards and
then paused. Another spool was
tested with similar exemplary pa
tience and rectitude nnd held out
the 400. The customer, however,
would not have even the honest
spool, saying that she wanted one
not unwound. The genial shopman
produced an unmeasured spool, and
thereupon gathered the 25 cents
into the till, proceeds of a sale of
cotton thread, and afterwards turn
ed his attention to winding up the
unwound spools, while he cogitated
over the pecuniary value to its
possessor of a mathematical mind.
FOOTSTEPS OF ST. PAUL.
Fort Street Church was well lilted
last evening. A union service was
held by the Fort Street and Belhcl
congregations for the purpose of
hearing Major Dane's address on
" Along theFootslcps of St. Paul."
It is enough to say that the lectin er
fully sustained his previously well
earned reputation as an able deline
ator of persons and places. The
lecture closed with a general sketch
of Mission Work among the Greeks,
commenced by Mrs. Hill in 1831,
and a particular account of the
labors of Rev. D. Z. Sakellarios, a
young native Greek missionary re
cently educated in the United Slates,
but whose enterprises have been
confined to narrow limits for want
of funds. The speaker announced,
that, there and then, the audience
present would lie afforded the
" piivilcge" of contributing through
their pastors, towaids the enlarge
ment of Mr. Sakellarios's sphere of
usefulness, whereupon the contribu
tion boxes were passed round, nnd
the sum of S7G.20 realized. Major
Dane is expected to speak, through
an interpreter, at one of the native
churches on Sunday evening next,
when another collection will be
taken for the same object. Sept.
A DANGEROUS VISITOR
" Why don't you say something
about diphtheria being in town?
People whose children may have

disease is here, so that they would

Thus said a Queen street merchant
to our reporter to-day, but too near
press-time for making enquiries
among the local physicians. Au
thentic information of two cases, in
different families, was, however, ob
tained. While the existing cases may not
be malignant, the disease may spread,
and in spreading develop into the
worst type. There is no question
that the sanitary conditions of the
city are at present highly favorable
to the development of any species
of epidemic. A grave responsibility
rests upon the Board of Health.
ADVANCE IN SUGAR.
Williams, Dimond & Co.'s circu
lar of Sept. 15th reports that the
California Sugar Refinery had that

THE ALLIE R0WE
Shortly after the Honolulu brig
Allie Rowe, dipt. Holland, arrived
in Hongkong, she was stripped,
caulked and coppered at a cost of
81,200. Afterwards she got a
83,000 charter to Tientsin, 81,500
being paid in advance Tho cargo
was insured for 870,000. When
about ten miles out of Hongkong
the brig encountered a sovero gale,
which caused her to leak so badly
that she was compelled to put back
to that port. She was with dilllculty
kept afloat. The AllioRowo had been
surveyed iir Hongkong nnd a first
class certificate granted her, which
her agents here, Messrs. Freeth &
Peacock, have received. The latter
are satisfied that the vessel is all
right, and will re-appear in Hono
lulu harbor in due time.
Some two or three Chinamen wero
up a short timo ago before the Court
in San Francisco for violating tho
laws by their presence. Whether
they contravened any laws national
or international by presuming to
exist has not yet been decided. But
tho propriety of annexing them to
the population of the American
Continent was settled in brief order.
When shown the "no admittance"
sign over the Golden Gate, they re
quested leave to embark for Victo
ria, but were refused. Then they
tried for Mexico, but the load to
Mexico was also closed. There was
no communication left open except
the road back to the llowery laud.
The Pacific Coast authorities evi
dently mean business in their Chi
nese prohibition decrees.
A Chinaman, found painting his
sign yesterday, was arrested for
violation of the Sunday laws. A
couple of kanakas breaking a horse
on Beretania street, arrd making at
least twenty times as much disturb
ance as the Chinese painter, not to
speak of the brutality exhibited by
the trainets, on the same Sunday
afternoon, were not arrested. A
white man, on a Saturday night
racket, made Hotel street ring with
blasphemy and blackguardism, and
was not arrested. Another white
man running a beer shop on Queen
street, had gathered round a num
ber of roughs who made things so
lively that a policeman was called,
and stationed on or near the pre
mises, but as in the two preceding
cases, nobody was run in. Sept.
