The company assembled in the audi
ence room up stairs. Mr. Theo. II.
Davics, on behalf of tho association
pionounced a neat address of wel
come. Alluding to the motto over the
main entrance to the building, lie
said that "welcome" to the stranger
is a characteristic of the Y. M. C. A.
the world over. The speech was
heartily cheered by tho whole com
pany. The musical and literary
programme was as follows:
1 . l'cucc Fugitive

Piano accompaniments were given
by Mrs. Walker and Miss Hcssio
Tho songs were enthusiastically
encored. In lesponsc to an encoic,
Mr. Davies sang Nancy Lee, which
was received with rapturous ap
plause. Mrs. Hall's reading was a
comic rhyme in which the Southern
negro's philosophy of how to look
at the best side of all the mishaps of
life is well expressed. Mr. Castle
read l'blroleuin V. Nnsby's "Han
nah Jane" in a very effective man
ner. -Mr. P. C. Jones answered in
his usual happy manner to the call
for a five minutes' speed). He did
not know why he had been called to
make a speech unless it was because
ho was chairman of the temperance
committee. He was glad to learn
that Captain Aliugton of the Satel
lite was a blue libbon man, and lie
had no doubt that tho captain's
abstinence principles would tell favor
ably on the men. lie was pleased
to note, too. that the captain takes
an interest in the good name as well
as the good conduct of his men, as
he had read in the evening paper the
captain's contradiction of a report
published in another paper to the dis
credit of the sailors on shore. lie also
commended the sailors' good con
duct on the streets during their stay
here. He always had a great ad
miration for a sailor and especially
for a man-of-war sailor, as it seem
ed to him that a man-of-war's man
must have the elements of tiue
bravery in him, as there was no
chance for cowards in naval warfare.
There could be no running away
there. A. lit tribute was paid to
Admirals Farragut, Nelson, and
Blake, and other naval heroes of
the past. The five minutes' speech
closed in a storm of applause. Secre
tary Fuller delivered an able five
minutes' speech, in which lie stated
that the object of the institution he
represented was to provide for young
men the means of having a good
time, and sucli a good lime as is
never succeeded by a sling of le
morse in the recollection of it. He
was glad to meet the sailors present,
as they all seemed to be young men,
and being Englishmen, he had dis
covered from some genealogies that
a literary brother of his had taken
the trouble to hunt up that he was
enough of an Englishman himself to
claim the privilege of calling them
brothers. The address closed with
a commendatory allusion to the fact
Hint the originator of the Young
Men's Christian Associations, George
Williams, was an Englishman, and
that in the great metropolis of the
English nation, the first organization
under this title was accomplished.
Mr. Davics claimed the debater's
privilege, that as he had opened
pioceedings, lie was entitled now to
have the last word. The unanimity
and enthusiasm with which tiiis en
tertainment had been taken up by
all the English-speaking members of
the association, from whatever coun
try they hailed, had made him come
to the conclusion that "there is
precious little difference between
us." Ho expressed his best wishes
for the welfare of the sailors in their
cruise, and hoped that we might
have the pleasure of seeing them
here again. A number of books,
the gift of Mrs. Davics, was distri
buted among the men. Refresh
ments, consisting of ice cream and
cake, of. which there seemed to be
an unlimited supply, was then
served. After tho collation had
been satisfactorily disposed of, res
ponses from the guests were an
nounced. The chaplain of the ship
had previously expressed tho thanks
of the officers and crew for the kind
reception accorded them. The
gunner's mate now took the rostrum,
and thanked the people of Honolulu
who were present, on behalf of hlm
sclf and shipmates. He had been
all over the world, but ho had never
met with anything to excel the re
ception and entertainment of the
present occasion. Ho then sung,
with excellent .effect, "Tho Stow
away Boy." An able seaman next
came forward and sung "Tho Best
of Friends Must Part," tho chorus
being taken up vigorously by the
officers and crew. Tho genial Con
sul, Mr. Davies, expressed n wish to
hear "Yo Mariners of England"
present sing "God Save the Queen."

TIDE DAILY BULLETIN SUMMARY: HONOLULU, H. I., "WEDNESDAY,
Thiswas responded to with enthusi
asm," and the grand old anthem soon
filled the hall with its inspiring
strains. "Auld Lang Sync" fol
lowed, and was sung with a spirit
and pathos befitting its inimitable
and universal adoption to tho social
instincts of every race and clime
under the sun. The gunner's mate
proposed "three cheers for the peo
ple of Honolulu," and probably for
the first time in its history the Y.
M. C. A. building rang with three
rousing cheers and "another one,"
given in the style in which sailors
only know how toehecr. Oct. HHh.
At a meeting of the trustees, held
on the '29th, it was decided to pro
ceed with the completion of the
second tower and spire. The neces
sary funds, about $2,000, required
for the wood-work of the spire and
the finishing of the church inside,
are expected to be all in before the
end of the year. A collection will
be taken, in the church, on Sunday
morning next, 'in aid of the Building
Fund. A concert will be given on
the 21th ; and on the 28lh, Inde
pendence Day, there will be a grand
Limit Lulu Dala, the proceeds of
both to go into the same fund. If
any of our readers don't know what
I it. in lulu dala means, they can sub

At the luau there will be three tables
for natives, Chinese and whites,
respectively. The several districts
in connection with the church are
expected to contribute the necessary
pigs, fowls, poi, fish, etc., to supply
the tables. Oct. 1st.
DEPARTURE OF THE ALAMEDA.
There was a large crowd on the
O. S. S. Co.'s wharf at the de
parture of the Alameda to-day. The
passenger list given elsewhere is one
of the smallest ever gone by this
line, but includes some very promi
A sad incident, unknown to the
most of the gay throng of spectatois,
was the embarkation of Mr. John
Lyle, shipwright, for his home in
California. He came hero five
months ago, to work on the Marine
Kail way with his brother, one of the
lessees of the works. About two
months ago he built a landing at
Waialua for the Honolulu Stone
Company, and after returning to
town complained of being unwell.
Different doctors failed to afford
him relief, and about a fortnight
ago he was taken to the Queen's
Hospital. Not getting any better
there, he was ordered by the physi
cians to go home to his family by
the first opportunity. The officers
of the S. S. Australia refusing to
take a sick man on board, the
patient had to wait until to-day.
Members of Excelsior Lodge, I. O.
0. F., of which he was a visitor,
generously presented Mr. Lyle with
the price of a first-class passage, in
addition to the benefits due by his
own Lodge in San Francisco. The
steward, purser and doctor of the
Alameda engaged to do all thej'
could for the sick man's comfort on
the passage. Possibly the trip maj
have a beneficial effect upon him,
but the local physicians are doubt
ful if lie reaches his destination.
The steamer took away nearty
twice as much sugar as the Mari
posa took on September loth. A
mail of 3,81s letters, weighing 10G
pounds, and 1,331 parcels of papers,
230 pounds, was despatched from
the Post Office. The Royal Hand boys
were on hand and played a fine pro
gramme. Till: LATE l'ASSENGElt.
Aii amusing episode took place as
the steamer was leaving the wharf.
A stout man, with a slouch hat and
an old-fashioned carpet bag, came
puffing through the crowd after the
gangway was taken down. The stern
lines were cast off, and the vessel
was swinging ont.' There was a
hawser hanging in a festoon from
the deck. Someone cried out to the
late passenger, "Take hold of that
rope and climb up." Just as he
made a grab at tho rope a sailor
pulled on one end of it and raised
it three inches. The passenger
made a desperate leap and grasped
the hawser with one hand. Feeling
a bite, as an angler would say, the
sailor avasted heaving on the line.
While the vessel was near enough,
half-a-dozen laborers joined in giv
ing him a boost. When the dis
tance between wharf and ship ex
panded to about two feet, the men
had to leave the struggling passen
ger to his fate. A newspaper man
vainly tried to lift the gangway, to
get some loose boards from under
it, with which to afford the wrig
gling emigrant a purchase for a
grand spring. The man's hat had
fallen on the edge of the wharf.
Digging his toes at the margin of
tho iron plate, he continued the now
desperate struggle. Excelsior! But
it was too much for him. His
strength was evidently failing, and,
as he paused in his prodigious ex
ertions, everybody waited for him
to drop into the water. At this
crisis a sailor sprang over tho rail
with the cud of a rope in his hand.
As the gallant fellow clambered
down the sido a ringing cheer rose
from the crowd. Giving a double
turn of the rope round his wrist, he
grasped tho passenger by the left I
arm, and called to the men on
deck to haul on the line.
But the two strugglcrs could
not bear the strain. They -were
only able to hold their own, when a
second sailor enmo over the rail like
the first and. look the other arm.
Then a boatful of wharfmen camu
alongside and gave the trio a good
boost. When our hero with all this
assistance, was raised to the level
of a saloon window, "his carpet bag,
that had been an encumbrance from
the first, was wrested from his hand
and tossed through the opening.
Then a third assistant appeared in
side, who seized the passenger by
tho shoulders and tugged ns the
others hoisted. As " the last pas
senger" disappeared on board head
foremost through tho window, tho
cheering from wharf and deck was
something to bo remembered.
" Some one has to bo last,"
" Wasn't it funny V" and "That was
a lesson in punctuality," were ob
servations heard among the laughing
crowd, as they dispersed to the
strains of "Hawaii Ponoi."-Oct. 1.
THE BETHEL UNION.
AN INTERESTING ADDRESS OX l'UC.ET
SOUND MEETINli 01' THE .SOCIAL
At the Bethel Union prayer meet
ing last evening, the Rev. A. O.
Forbes, just returned from a three
months' holiday trip to Puget Sound,
gave an interesting account of his
visit to Portland, Oregon, and the
small towns about the Sound. It is
worth the voyage, the Rev. gentle
man observed, to sail through .the
beautiful strait of Juan de Fuca, the
United States on one hand and
Great Britain on the other. Puget
Sound is a fine body of water,
smooth as a pond, and dotted with
numerous small islands. The shores
are studded with mill towns, with
their busy saw mills where the ex
tensive lumber trade of that region
is carried on. Seventy-four steam
ers ply upon the waters of the
Sound, and as they meander through
the channels between the islands,
to a stranger they appear to be run
ning hither and thither without any
definite course or certain destina
tion. Landing on the shores of
America was a great event in his
life. Far back in the dim recollec
tions of the past, he could recall a
time when he was an American citi
zen, but after so long an absence, it
seemed now as if he-stood upon the
enchanted ground of America for
the first time. The first town visited
had a population of 500, with two
churches and 24 grog shops. In the
course of his visit to Portland, he
called at the rooms of the Y.M.C.A.,
and was agreeably surprised to find
the autograph of Mr. E. Damon on
the visitor's register, where it had
been fixed but a few days previous.
The country is progressing very
rapidly in industry and wealth. . In
noting the moral forces of society,
he observed that evil in every form
was rampant, but the institutions of
religion were established and were
making good progress. Speaking
with special reference to the subject
before the meeting, he had realized
in his own experience the truth that,
on land or sea, and in every con
dition of life, God's presence may
After the close of the prayer
meeting, the Bethel Social Union

elect officers. Mr. Wm. Clark,

THE FIREMEN'S BALL.
Engine Co. No, l's grand ball at
the Yoscmite Skating Hail last night
was in every way a success. The
front of the building was brilliantly
illuminated. From the top of tho
flagstaff down to tho sides of tho
building were strings of lighted
Chinese colored lanterns, forming
festoons. Extending aoross the
road wore streamers of lights and
tho doorways were also lighted with
lanterns. The interior presented a
gay profusion of flags, of all nations,
Mowers, evergreens and firemen's
ornaments, making a pretty display
and reflecting much credit on the
ladies and gentlemen who worked
so hard in decorating the hall. At
tho main entrance was a huge fire
man's effigy with flrc-hat and speak
ing trumpet, to illustrate tho mighti
ness of a fireman. A detachment
of the Royal Band tiiidcr Mr. Bor
gcr was stationed in one corner of
the hall to furnish music for danc
ing. II. R. II. Princess Liliuoka
lani, His Ex. Governor Doininis,
lion. A. S. CIcghorn, His Ex. C. T.
Gulick, Minister of Interior, and
Mrs. Gulick, were there, also many
ladies and gentlemen who came to
participate in the pleasures of
dancing. At nine o'clock the ball
began with a grand march, led by
Mr. and Mrs. Robt. More. Dancing
followed willi zest, but, owing to
the number of gentlemen exceeding
that of ladies, there were many wall
flowers. The committee of arrange
ments, red rosettes, were Robert
More, P. O'Sullivan, Thos. Krouso,
R. II. Graham, J. A. Mclirtcns and
W. Wright. Reception Committee,

Floor Committee, white rosettes, W.
P. Crooks, P. Harvey, A. Brown
and I. Ginsberg. The rosettes were
presented to the company by Mr.
C. J. Fishel. During the evening
refreshments were served under the
supervision of Mr. II. Hart. Icp
cream, cakes anil lemonade were
plentiful and of the very best. A
programme of twelve dances was
carried out witli animation, winding
up with a medley. The ball closed
about one o'clock, and the firemen
are to be congratulated on the suc
cess of the ball, the good manage
ment, informality, and the pleasure
given to all. October 2d.
A DEPARTED WORTHY.
ax Adventurer ix
-Another one IX THE.
There arrived in the steerage of
the S. S. Alameda from San Fran
cisco on April 22nd, a gentlemanly
looking young man of about twenty
five, billed as E. C. Thompson. His
autograph, as it appears in the regis
ter of the Hawaiian Hotel, is down
in a beautiful flourish as E. Cecil
Thompson. This personage affected
to be a man of property from Eng
land, and ho engaged a room in
Union street, taking his meals for the
most part at the Hotel. Of a polished
exterior and insinuating ways, he
soon established himself in the favor
of many estimable residents. Armed
with Ills own graces and ,the regard
of a considerable section of Hono
lulu soeiet3', this gentleman of
leisure, who claimed to have made
the circuit of the globe eleven times,
went forth conquering and to con
quer. Being possessed of a taste
for rural felicity, he obtained the
fieedoin of some of the ranches on
this Island, and made prolonged ex
cursions to the plcasantest and most
comf oi table private manors of other
Islands. He was ready to buy up
estates wherever he went, and in
fact proclaimed himself in this city
as the purchaser of Mr. James Gay's
ranch at Waialua.
His form becoming familiar, and
his manners acceptable to the com
munity, of course the next thing to
be done was to obtain a stake in the
country. That can be done in this
kingdom, with its passport law, most
easily by creating personal obliga
tions on all hands. The very thing
our hero set about doing, and lie
succeeded to the extent of running
up bills in many local establish
ments, drinking saloons, perhaps,
having his distinguished preference.
At length tho reckoning day came.
The traders and caterers wanted
their money and were not over
awed by the august visitor's pres
ence into postponing their requests
for settlement. The tardiness of
the debtor's response, and the pro
fuscness of his excuses for delay,
only increased the importunity of
his creditors. Honolulu was becom
ing too tropical for his genteel com
fort, and now for the summoning up
of all the reserves of the wits by
which he had, at least, added luxu
rjousness to subsistence. As the
ganie could not bo played much
longer, the player must of necessity
retire from the scene. Tho culmi
nation of E. Cecil Thompson's
career in Honolulu was reached on
Saturday last. A few evenings pre
vlonsly ho had shed a parting luster
on his record by dining the officers'
of the man-of-war.
Visiting the Deltnonieo saloon on
King street, kept by Mr. Sam. Now
lein, he was aked for "that little
bill" of twenty-five dollars, which
he owed the bar-tender, Mr. E. L.
! Doyle, for room rent. "Oh, cer
tainly, only you will have to cash a
small draft," was the reply, as
Thompson produced a draft of $227
and odd cents, on ono of the National
Banks of California. Mr. Doyle
could not cash tho draft in the
abseneo of his employer, but tho
latter himself entering offered to do
what ho could witli the paper. Mr.
Nowlein took the draft in good faith
to Mr. M. Mclneruy and asked him
OCTOBER 14, 1885.
if he would cash it. Mr. Mclncrny
had never hoard of Thompson, but '
said he would cash the draft if Mr (
Nowlein would endorse it. This
being done by the latter, the money
was raid him. Just at this moment
Mr. Peacock, of the linn of Frceth
& Peacock, happened along, and up
on Mr. Mclnerny enquiring if he
knew aught of Thompson the former
replied that he did, as that person
had just wanted to pay a bill at their
office witli a $227 draft. Comparing
notes, the gentlemen apprehended
that there was something wrong
about the man, and the result was
that Thompson's passport was stop
ped in anticipation of the departure
of tho S. S. City of Sydney for the
Colonies. In the meantime Mr.
Nowlciu handed the money to
Thompson, dediietinu the amount of
his account against him a few dol
lars. Having been informed by Mr.
Mclncrny of the worthlessness of
the draft, Mr. Nowlein promptly
made good the amount to the foimer.
Then, 'confronting Thompson, who
came to the Dclmonico, with a state
ment of the case, Mr. Nowlein was
coolly informed that theic was a
horse outside he could have for the
money. The proposal was accepted,
but, as it happened, the horse did
not belong to the man bartering it,
but was the property of Mr. James
Gay, and the latter has since re
claimed tho animal. With the pto
cceds of the draft Thompson went
to pay some bills that could not be
got rid of by any other piocess. Be
fore paying Messrs. Frceth & Pea
cock, however, he again asked
Mr. Peacock if he would ca9h
a $227 draft. For answer he was
told to pay cash within ten minutes
or he would be arrested ; whereupon
he handed over the amount. There
are pretty well authenticated ac
counts of other drafts negotiated by
Thompson about town, but it would
take too much time to trace them all
up. It is possible the man may
have had some funds when he ar
rived here, and that his sharp prac
tice only began when those were
exhausted. At all events, a good
many more people than care to own
up to it, are mourning his stealing
away, in spite of the passport law
and special police surveillance, in
the City of Sj'dney on Sunday morn
ing. An account of that feat, so
far as could be gained, was given in
the Bulletin the following day, and
all the additional information comes
in the, shape of a suspicion that his
departure was aided and abetted by
people on shore, and by a passenger
who had been a very welcome visitor
for several weeks to tho city and
islands. Thompson had paid Ills
bill at the Hotel.
By the s.s. Australia, that arrived
here from the Colonies on Septem
ber 27th, the half-dozen or so copies
of the Aitslmhtsian newspaper
taken here were received at the
Post Office and distributed. The
paper contained an account of the
embezzlement of a large amount,
20,000 or 30,000, some say. It
is impossible to give particulars, for
within a few hours after the papers
were delivered to subscribers, the
account of the embezzlement was
torn out of every copy in town, so
far as can be learned. Who did it
or how it was done is a ni3Tstcry,
but the general opinion is that there
is another adventurer in the midst
of us. Whether he came as a stow
away, or in any way, on the steamer
named, is not known. But it is
generally believed that it took a
pretty smart fellow to get away with
the printed record, including the
copy in the public library, without
being at least kicked for his pains.
THE GREAT QUESTION.
" What do you think of Mr. Mar
ques's letter in yesterday's Bulle
tin?" asked one merchant of ano
ther in Messrs. Adams & Co.'s sales
room this forenoon.
"I think it is perfectly ridicu
lous," was the reply. "You can
not make one law for one nationality,
and another for another, I would
have the retail license fee raised to
$500. That would close up most of
the Chinese stores at once. Then
tho duty on goods, from China should
bo made 100 percent, whjch would
put a stop to the importation of sup
plies from that country. Why should
Chinn's slinking fish and duck be
forced into tho country, when the
United States buys our sugar and
cau give in return ample supplies of
wholesome food for all classes?
Next year we will have 80,000 tons
of sugar to sell to America, and
something should bo done to give
tlip fullest, scope to the treaty, in tho
way of taking American produce in
exchange for our great product.
Another thing that should bo done,
is to stop the issuance of peddling
"I do not claim," added the
speaker, "that my idea is all per
fect ; but every man should give hist
opinion qn this most important ques-'
tion, so that tho best remedy for the
evil may bo found."
After " taking in" the foregoing
expression of opinion, the reporter
sallied forth with the cue, and, meet
ing a third merchant, asked him
what he thought of tho letter in question.
"I believe It. wne ,... j .t.t
,r Vr K'J B"uu mac
is, Mr. Marques is right in repre
senting tho Chinese question as one
of the most important thU country
has to deal with. As t , oposod
method of i chef, I have not formed
an opinion, something will, how
ever,, have to bo done. When the
Uui.cso have, nbsoi bed all the small
trade of the city, they will undoubt
edly next attack the largo concerns
It is a very serious matter now to
see the mechanics driven away by
Chinese competition. 1 regard the
mechanic class as a saving elemunt
of the country. Those that, leave
arc lost to the country, for they me
not likely to come back. The civi
lized working people are the main
stay of our best institutions, the
best customers of our tinders."
Being told of the remedy pro
posed by a fellow-tiader, as given
above, this gentleman expiessed hi-j
dissent from the proposition.
"Five hundred dollars would be
n larger license fee than ni03t white
retailers could stand, while many of
the Chinese would be enabled to pay
it, and thus matters would really be
made worse. I think this kingdom
should be under no treaty obliga
tions whatever to China. The Gov
ernment should be very guarded
against playing into the hands qf
the Chinese, for it lias i cully become
the question of the day' whether
these Islands are to be under West
ern or Oriental dominancy in the
hear future." Oct. 2d.
H. L. & R. R. A.
The regular quarterly meeting of
the Honolulu Library and Reading
Room Association, including also
the annual meeting, was held last
evening in the reading room. There
was but a small attendance, only
three or four members outside of
the Executive being present, making
up a total of fifteen members, lion.
S. B. Dole, president, having called
the meeting to order, the minutes of
last meeting were read by the secre
tary, Mr. II. A. Parmelee, and ap
proved. Mr. A. L. Smith, trea
surer, read the quarterly financial
report, showing a balance in hand
The trustees reported two recom
mendations to the Association,
namely: 1st, That a sum not ex
ceeding Sl,500 be borrowed, to pay
off certain outstanding debts ; 2ndly,
That an Authors' Carnival be held
in February, to raise money to re
deem the proposed loan.
The first recommendation was
adopted. The second was referred
to the entertainment committee to
be appointed at that meeting.
In the course of a discussion of
tho above method of raising funds,
reference was made to a resolution
of last year's meeting, to appoint a
canvasser for regular subscriptions,
and Professor M. M. Scott reported
that, without official commission, lie
had gone out one fine morning and
secured thirty new members.
Rev. Dr. Hyde moved a resolu
tion, of which due notice had been
given, that section two of the bylaws
be altered, so that bills should be
referred to the auditing committee
instead of to the Association. The
Mr. A. Marques sent in his re
signation as a member of the board
of trustees, asking that he should
not be nominated for re-election.
He found fault witli the financial
management of the institution, hold
ing that it was a great mistake that
a two-story building had not been
erected, so that a revenue, could be
derived from' letting the ground
floor. The secretary was instructed
to acknowledge the receipt of the
resignation and signify its accept
ance. The Association by ballot elected
