Honolulu, Oct. 30th, 1885.
FIRE ON A VESSEL.
About a quarter to four o'clock
this morning a fire alarm was sounded
from the Central Tower, and taken
up by tho bell on the China Engine
House a little later. There was a
great running to and fro by lire
companies, and citizens on foot and
in carriages, for a good while before
the locality of the firo could bu as
certained. At length a commotion
was noticed on board the schooner
Emma lying out in the stream, off
the Fish Market, and shortly a
wreath of smoke was seen curling
up from her forecastle. Then some
lime was consumed in deciding how
to reach the firo with the hose.
Eventual' a branch from Mechanic
Engine was sent out in a scow, the
schooner at the same time being
warped in nearer the docks. An
effective stream soon put tho flames
out. Before that was accomplished,
however, the fire had licked its way
through the inner and outer plank
ing, making two holes in tho latter,
and had completely destroyed the
bunks. The Emma is the property
of Mr. II. Macfarlanc, and was fully
insured. A survey will be held on
Monday, when the extent of the
damages will be ascertained. There
is nothing definitely known as to the
origin of the fire, but there is a sup
position that it may have been caused
by sparks from the limekiln. There
was nobody on board the craft, she
having been laid off and stripped of
apparel some days ago.
BENEFIT TO MR. THROWER.
Tho benefit last evening to Mr.
Charles Thrower, who is probably
the most popular member of the
Farini Opera Company, was miser
ably attended. Scarcely forty per
sons, including the holders of com
plimentary seats, were present. Tho
concert itself was upon the whole a
very enjoyable occasion to those in
the auditorium. All of the singers
seemingly were blind to the beggarly
array of empty benches, and did
their utmost to please their auditors.
Miss Hopf and Messrs. Thrower and
Marchand were severally presented
with handsome bouquets at different
stages of tho programme. Miss
Hopf created much enthusiasm in
the little audience by her singing of
"Aloha Oc," and Mile. Zora was
heartily applauded for her efforts on
each occasion of her appearance.
Portions of her numbers were char
acterized by a high degree of musical
execution. Miss Helen Avery has
grown in favor since her first appear
ance here, but her voice is undoubt
edly too thin for a large hall. In
"The Bend of the River " last
evening, she was rather slighting of
some of her notes, but later on did
better in a more difficult piece, the
flower song from "Faust." Signor
Farini, in the closing number, "The
Fisherman," produced perhaps the
best specimen of his vocalism in
this city, by the harmonious blend
ing of his voice effected in duet
with Mr. Thrower. It was really a
happy set-off against the impression
the organizer of tho troupe made
upon his early appearances. In the
first part of the programme, it
would be blamable not to mention,
Mr. W. Morse, a local amateur,
sang in a fine baritone and very
acceptably, "Oh, were I but a
DEPARTURE OF THE ALAMEDA.
Honolulu society was well repre
sented on the Oceanic wharf at noon
to-day, to hid good-bye to departing
old acquaintances and visitors.
Among those staying at home who
were there, may be mentioned His
Majesty the King and his Chamber
lain, Hon. C. II. Judd, and Gov
ernor Dominis and Premier Gibson.
A remarkably varied company of
passengers were on deck, many of
them decorated with leis. It was
affecting to see a prominent insur
ance agent bestowing farewell floral
tributes upon tho gentle songstresses
of the Farini opera troupe. So ex
tensive a range of "persuasions" is
covered by the passenger list, that,
if the steamer should be cast upon a
desert island, almost all the institu
tions of civilization could at once be
established in the colony that would
be formed. There is a Doctor of
Divinity to "point to heaven and
lead the way ;" an ex-Premier, to give
them a constitution and politics ; a
Chief Justice, to administer law and
equity : a banker, to furnish a cir
culating medium ; a troupe of
musicians, to provide amusement ; a
sailmaker, to help them take wing
when tho territory became over
crowded, and, doubtless, many other
useful arts and industries are "there' '
for other services if occasion re
quire. Tho Royal Band played a
fine "aloha" programme, closing
with "Home, Sweet Home," "Auld
Lang Syne," American national airs
and " Hawaii Ponoi." Elsewhere
will bo found the freight and pas
senger list. Tho mail despatched

which form of policy is taken by in.
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi

putable after three years and payable
Immediately after proof of death.
3d Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy are the fame as on the Ordinary
Lite, but, while tho lntter is only pay.
ablo in tho event of dratli, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
tho whole of tho reservo and tho accu.
niuliitcil profits in fash at tho end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years nro past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an ordlnnry policy, sccuro these
4th Experience shows that tho return
pltid in cubh on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or oxeceds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holdcr, so that the average cost of the
assurance will be only about the Interest
on the premiums.

paid In full in tho event of death at any
time during tlio term of the policy, ami
arc incontestable after three years, and
payable Immediately after duo proof of
