A WHALER IN PORT.
The whaler Capo Horn Pipeon,
Capt. Kelley, of New Bedford, ar
rived last evening from the Okhotsk
Sea with no oil. In the latter part
of August, she, with three other
whalers, were whaling in Shantar
Bay when a Russian man-of-war
drove them awav. The vessels
driven off were the steamer Mary
and Helen, which had caught four
bowheads (a species of whale) mak
ing 300 barrels of oil; tho hark
Hcrriman with one whale, one bow
head and two mussel-diggers (a
species of whale often seen near the
Coast of California), making 290
barrels of oil ; and the schooner
Clara Bell with no oil. It appears
that the Govenor-Gencral of Siberia
had issued orders which he claims
were printed in American papers
that no seal hunter nor whaling ves
sel is allowed within nine miles of
land in the Okhotsk Sea. The Cape
Horn Pigeon came direct to Hono
lulu while the other whalers remained
in the Okhotsk Sea to cruise for oil.
The season for whales in the Arctic
regions is about over. The Cape
Horn Pigeon will remain here for
about 15 days to make preparation
for a sperm whaling cruise to the
south. She shipped from this port,
about a year ago, ten or twelve
sailors, who are now indebted to the
ship for money advanced. The
arrival of the whaler seems to have
awakened the semi-dormant recollec
tions of early days. Several sea
captains congregated at the store of
A. W. Peirce & Co. this morning
and spoke of the time of 1850 and
thereabout, when the bay was full
of whalers, the streets filled with
barrels of oil, and money was plenti
ful as in the golden days of Califor
nia. Five dollars was the smallest
coin and even 10 was considered
small. Tho captains spoke of their
voyages to the Okhotsk Sea, and the
thrilling adventures of whaling in
those days, when they went up close
to the game and sometimes mounted
tho monster to jab a harpoon in him.
They told how lives were lost-then,
but now science has lessened the
risk of life.v Guns that throw a
bomb or a harpoon arc used and the
whalers keep at a safe distance.
The old seamen remarked that whal
ing is about played out, that the
price of bone has fallen from $3 to
1.90 per pound, but there maybe
a revival among the whalers when
bone becomes scarce and the price
of it goes up. It is further learned
that tho whaler Europa, Captain
Baker, was at Hakodadi m August
with 750' barrels of oil caught in tho
Japan seas, and is expected at this
port beforo long.
ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ROYAL
HAWAIIAN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY.
The Society met at the Hawaiian
Hotel last evening, at 8 o'clock, and
was called to order by Hon. A. F.
Judd, Vice-President. Judge Aus
tin, Mr. A. II. Smith, Mr. II. Pur
vis and Mr. R. A. Macfie of tho
Planters' Company, being present,
were invited to take part in any dis
cussions that might arise. Mr. J.
S. "Webb, Secretary, read tho
minutes of last annual meeting,
which were approved.
Thorepoitof tho Board of Man
agement was read and adopted.
uuroiiT. OF U0A1U of manaoemunt.
Last year tho Board of Manage
ment concluded their report with an
intimation that tho smallness of the
grant in aid made to the Society by
the legislature would probably
greatly restrict the operations of the
year then coming. Unfortunately,
this prediction has been, to a certain
extent, realized. Tho Directors
Jiavo had to abstain from complet
ing the accommodations on tho show
ground, and have not been in a
position to provide prizes on the
scale adopted by tho Society's first
show for tho successful competitors
at the Fairs of 1881 and 1885. They
are, however, glad to say that all
the pecuniary liabilities of the
society, which twelve months ago
amounted to about 81,000, have
In view of the narrow means nt
their disposal and tho prevailing
dullness of the times, the Board
deemed it advisable to pursue a
policy of caution. Tho Fair of the
current year, therefore, though
thrown open to all classes of ex
hibits, was made specifically a horse
show only, and prizes were not prof
fered for anything but horse stock.
This resolve, rendered almost a
necessity by want of funds, was
strengthened by the outspoken ob
jectoin of horticulturists to exhibit
at so great a distance from the
town, as Kapiolani Park, and tho
desire of some of the principal ex
hibitors of cattle that the show of
this class of stock should be bien
nial only. The Fair was held on
Saturday, June 13th, and was under
the circumstances decidedly a suc
cessful one ; both the exhibits and the
attendance being more numerous
than the Board had ventured to ex
pect. Being convinced that though ad
mirably adapted in other respects
for such purposes, tho Society's
Fair Ground is not at present suf
ficiently accessible to the public and
to exhibitors to bo suitable for horti
cultural shows, the Board has de
cided to remove the large hall from
Kapiolani Park to the Government
Nursery Ground on King street.
Leave to erect it on that site has
been courteously granted by the
Minister of the Interior, and brick
foundations have already been laid
to receive it. The cost of these
foundations has been in part de
frayed by the private subscriptions
of ladles and gentlemen interested
in Horticulture, who generously came
to the aid of the Society to enable it
to carry out what will no doubt
prove to be a very useful and popu
lar arrangement. It is intended
that in future, at least one, perhaps
two, Horticultural Fairs shall be
held yearly. It will probably be
found convenient to couple with
these the Society's shows of poultry,
cage birds, dogs, etc., the exhibit
ors in these classes being averse to
the trouble and expense of convey
ing their exhibits to and from. Ka
piolani Park. A large number of
seeds of useful plants, obtained at
the New Orleans Exposition by the
assiduity of Hon. J. Mott Smith and
Mr. C. C. Coleman, were presented
to the Society by the Minister of
Foreign Affairs, and have been
placed in charge of Mr. Jaeger for
experimental purposes. Their pro
duce now forms an interesting col
lection at the Government Nursery,
which was by permission selected
as the most suitable place for the
experiment. It seems probable that
many of these plants will be easily
acclimatizc'd in these islands. In
resigning their trust the Board com
mend this useful society to a larger
measure of public support than
has hitherto been accorded to it.
The Treasurer's statement was
read and approved.

The next business announced to
bo in order was the elcotion of
oflicers, except a President, His
Mnjesty the" King being permanent
President. Tho Vice-President re
quested of the Society, for reasons
stated, not to re-elect him to oillce.
lie thought it might have the effect
of revivifying the Society to get a
practical agriculturist for the oillce
of vice-president. The members
present expressed tho opinion that
they had "tho right man in tho
right place." The matter was
argued at considerable length, but
the learned judge could not be per
suaded to reverse his decision, and
as there was no appeal in the case,
Mr. Secretary Webb suggested an
adjournment to a future day for the
election of ollicers. A discussion
ensued over a very wide range of
subjects, in which amalgamation
with tho Planters' Labor and Supply
Company j tho respective attractions
of liorso shows and llowcr shows ;
diversified industries and other mat
ters of interest to cultivators of
Hawaiian products came in for
their respective shares of attention.
Mr. Jaeger referred to a very liberal
offer lie had made through the
Planters' Monthly to furnish boys
with necessary training for raising
trees, vegetables, and everything
connected with planting and sowing.
He had sent and delivered seeds to
many persons, with full instructions,
but afterwards learned that those
seeds had been destroyed for want
of knowing how to use them, Tho
required knowledge is within reach
of anyone wanting it, but no appli
cants have yet offered desiring to
avail themselves of it. Messrs.
Macllo and Smith thought it would
dissipate instead of concentrate the
energies of the members, for the
Society to merge into" the Planters'
Company. Mr. Purvis gave some
information relative to the growing
of cinchona and tea on Kukuihaelc,
which showed that there are good
prospects of adding these to the
products of Hawaii, whenever the
agriculturists are disposed to go
into the cultivation. Remarks to
the same purport were made by the
vice-president, and by Mr. Jaeger.
The Society then, on motion, ad
journed, to meet at the same place,
at 7:30 o'clock on Friday evening
