TUKSDAY. OCT. 27, 18S5.
REPORT OF MORNING STAR, 1835.
Sailed from Honolulu May 2,
J 835. Had light N. E. trades
twelve days, to Latitude t dcg. !N.,
and I.ongitudu IG8 dog. "V. Begun
to steam May lGth, and arrived at
Tapitauea, Gilbert Islands, May
23rd, after steaming 700 miles.
Steamed north through the Gilbert
Group in a calm, in ten days, and
used but seven tons of coal to do it,
stopping at each island to gather up
missionaries and teachers, for a
general meeting at Kusaic. Sailed
from Butaritari June Ith, and
anchored at Jalnit, Marshall Islands,
June Cth. Leaving Jalnit June l)th,
we anchored at Kusaic June 12th,
whistling to the wreck of the old
Star as we steamed past her into
harbor. Taking Miss Palmer on
board, we sailed again June 17th,
and anchored at Ponape on the 10th.
Leaving Miss Palmer at Ponope,
forwarding Mr. Logan's mail to Ruk
by a schooner, taking Mrs. Band
and daughter on board for a trip
through the Gilbert Group, we left
Ponape on our return trip cast June
23rd, heaving to at Pingclap June
2Gth, and anchoring again at Ivusaie
The general meeting of the Gilbert
Islands at Kusaic being over, we
sailed from there July 1st. to return
the Missionaries and teachers. Ar
rived at Butaritari, Gilbert Islands
again July 7th, -topped at Marakei
on the 10th : at Apaiangon the 1 1th.
12th, and 13th; at Tarawa on the
1 Ith, lath. 10th: at Maiana on the
17th, lSth. r.Kh; at Apemama on
the 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd; at
Nanouti on the2Uh. 23th, and 2Gth ;
and Tapitauea on the 27th, 28th,
and 29th. On July 30th sailed for
the west, to visit for the first time
Ocean Islands 300 miles west, and
Pleasant Islands -173 miles west of
Tapiteuca. After steaming in a
calm, and a head current of thirty
six to sixty-eight miles a day, we
stopped at Ocean Islands August
This island called Paanopa in
native, is forty eight miles south of
the equator in 109 deg. 47 min. E.
Lon. It seems about two hundred
feet high, covered more or less with
trees and shrubs, but has few cocoa
nut trees. There is no anchorage,
and no dangers outside the reef. It
is pleasant in appearance; about
eight miles in circumference, sur
rounded partly by rocks (probably
limestone) ami in other places by a
sand beach. "We found about two
hundred natives the wildest look
ing savages we ever saw. "We left
a Gilbert Islands teacher with them,
as the language is about the same.
They invited us to run down to Now
Caledonia to bring some of their
August Gth, one year from the
day our vessel was launched, we
stopped at Pleasant or jS'anaro
Islands. Seven white traders came
on board, thinking us a man-of-war.
We found twelve hundred natives,
divided into twelve tribes, all at war
with each other. Some of the in
terior tribes had never ventured to
to the beach. The people are above
the average both in Mzo and appear
ance. In fact they were the best
looking natives we have seen in
Micronesia. The women appeared
to be charmed with the appearance
of Mr. AValkup's students, and
began to embrace them, proposing
a dance with them at once. Pleasant
Island is in Latitude 0 deg. 27 min.
,S. Longitude 1G7 deg. E. It de
serves its name. It is probably
fifteen miles in circumference, about
one hundred feet in height, well
covered with cocoanut and other
trees, but like Ocean Island, they
arc troubled for fresh water, and
often suffer from drought. The
language differs from that of the
Gilbert Islands, but has propably
been the same. "We had no teacher
to leave, although they were dis
posed to receive one. Mr. Walkup
could not persuade any of the boys
to go to his Kusaie school. There
is no anchorage.
On August 3rd arrived at Ivusaie
the third time one hundred days
'out from Honolulu having had only
nine days breeze since beginning to
steam on the 10th of May the
calmest season and strongest cur
rents we ever experienced in the
'Gilbert Islands, On our second
ivisit to them, we found a ship still
there that we met while there on our
first visitw They had been detained
two weeks at a time at some of the
islands. One vessel was nine days
In sight of Kusaie, unhblc to enter
harbor on account of calm.
With the use of one boiler at a
time, and two tons of coal every 21
hours, we were able to steam in calm
'and smooth sea one hundred and
, twenty miles a day, or five knots an
hour. Both Ilrcs, in the Gilbert
Islands, make the engine room
Rev. Mr. "Walkup was one day
short of six weeks doing his Gilbert
Islands' work, making longer stops
at each island than ever before. The
same work on his last visit, in the
old Star, took him three months.
On August 20th sailed from
Kusaie, and did not reaoh Ponope
till the 31st. The calm weather
changed to heavy westerly squalls
and gales, and we had our first ex
perience at reefing, in Micronesian
waters. With the strong easterly
currents, gales and squalls, it was a
most disagreeable trip. On our
arrival at Ponape, wo found Rev.
Mr. Sturgcs laid aside by a stroke
of paralysis, and received orders
from that mission to proceed with
him to Honolulu via Utile, and then
return to finish the work in the
Marshall and Caroline Islands.
Left Ponope September 3th, and
steamed to Ruk against a light
westerly wind and strong current,
and anchored there September 10th.
After landing Arthur Logan, Mr.
Worth and wife, two Ponape teachers
and freight, we took mail and orders,
and sailed from Luk, September
12th, with the strong west wind and
current in our favor. Running be
fore the breeze, in two days, we
passed Ponape, and in two days
more were off Kusaie. Sent a boat
to the mission for mail and orders,
but the sea was high, and tide low,
and the boat could not return- The
sea and current drifted us fast away
from the island. We got up steam
and ran under the lee of the island,
and anchored in Lele Harbor. Leav
ing the boat with Mr. Walkup, the
mate and men joined us the next
day, when we started east again.
On September 21st, the wind and
weather weie gone and we 'began to
steam north in search of N. S.
trades. September 22nd, ran into
Jalnit lagoon and anchored for the
night, and received a late mail
from Honolulu, per Ke Au llou.
Painted ship outside, took mail and
orders, and sailed for Honolulu
September 23rd. Had light airs
and calms, -teaming and sailing at
all times to Latitude 11 deg. 30
min. Is1., and Longitude 177 deg. -13
min. E., where we took fresh N.E.
trades which continued to the Lati
tude of Honolulu, since when we
had light winds from cast to north
east with strong westerly currents.

of policy provide for annual cash divi

putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
ad The premiums on a Tontine po
licy aro the same as on the Ordinary
Life, but, while the latter is only pay.
able in the event of death, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the light to draw
the whole of the reserve and the accu
mulated profits in cash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years me past,
he can, without any larger premium

4th Experience shows that the return
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that the average cost of the
assuranco will be only about the interest
on the premiums.
