THE LATE CAPT. BREWER.
The following additional partlcu-
lnrs of the life of the late Capt.
Brewer, whose death was mentioned
in yesterday's issue, will bo of in
terest to our readers. In 1835 the
house now bearing his navrieiri Hono
lulu was established by H. A. Tierce
and Chas. Brewer under the style of
Fierce-Brewer. Tho firm and name
was changed in 1813 to C. Brewer
& Co., the company being C. Brewer,
second, nephew of Capt. Brewer.
The senior partner shortly nfloiward
proceeded to Boston and established
there the firm of Charles Brewer
& Company. There has ever
since been an intimate connection
between the Boston and the Hono
lulu houses, the former carrying on
all its extensive business on these
Islands through the latter. Capt.
Brewer first came to these Islands
about 18'JO; in 1830 he was bailing
a vessel between this port and Cali
fornia and the Northwest Coast, and
he has been closely identified with
the business and other interests of
this kingdom since his first arrival.
In 1884 Capt. Brewer wrote a hook
of reminiscences for private circula
tion, and a few copies wete sent to
this kingdom. "Born March 27th,
1804, he was above 81 ycais of age
at death. lie lias left tluee sons
and one daughter the latter, named
Eliza, now living at Jamniea Plains,
Boston. One of the sons is Mr. W.
P. A. Brewer, lesiding at Mnkawao,
Island of Maui, and the other two
are Edwaul and Joseph, who have
had active charge of the Boston firm
for several ycais. Another bon, John
D., a p.utncr in the ihni of C.
Brewer & Co., died here on Decem
ber 15th, 1S79. Capt. Bi ewer's
wife died some years ago. Nov.
DEPARTURE OF THE ALAMEDA.
Honolulu society was well repre
sented on the Oceanic wharf at noon
to-day, to bid good-bye to departing
old acquaintances and visitors.
Among those st'aj'ing at home who
were there, may bo 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 sec a prominent insur
ance agent bestowing farewell floral
tributes upon the 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, togive
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 pi o vide amusement; a
sailmaker, to help them take wing
when the territory became over
crowded, and, doubtless, many other
useful arts and industries arc "there"
for other services if occasion re
quire. The Royal Band played a
fine "aloha" programme, closing
with "Home, Sweet Home," "Aufd
Lang Sync," American national airs
and "Hawaii Ponoi." Elsewhere
will be found the freight and pas
senger list. The mail despatched
from the Post-olllcc comprised Jfl
letters and 1,278 packages news
papers. There was a good run on
the Bui.u.tix news summary for this
mail. Oct. 31st.
FIRE ON A VESSEL.
About a quarter to four o'clock
this morning a fire alarm was sounded
from the Central Tower, and t.iken
up by the bell on the China Engine
House a little later. Theie was a
great running to and fro by fire
companies, and citizens on foot and
in carriages, for a good while before
the locality of the fire could be as
certained. At length a commotion
was noticed on board the bchooner
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
time was consumed in deciding how
to reach the fire with the hose.
Eventually a braueh 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 the flames
out. Before that was accomplished,
however, the fire had licked its way
through the inner and outer plank
ing, making two holes in the latter,
'and had completely destroyed the
bunks. The Emma is the property
of Mr. II, Macfarlnnc, and was fully
insured. A survey will he held on
Monday, when the extent of the
damages will be ascertained. There

THE TRIPP CASE.
Judgment was given this after
noon in tho case of the Crown versus
Capt. A. N. Tripp and Luoy For
nandez, adultery. The charge was
entered on the Court record, Oct.
17th, when Capt. Tripp pleaded not
guilty, the girl, Lucy Fernandez,
pleading guilty. Evidence was heard
on the 21st, 28th and 2Uth lilt. His
Honor Justice Bickerton aid he
had given the case as well as the
evidence very careful consideration.
The case for the Crown rested
wholly on the evidence of the girl.
He had found the testimony of the
girl and that of Capt. Tripp directly
contradictory, and the question
really narrowed down to a decision
on the credibility of Lucy Fernan
dez. One part of the witness's
story cannot be taken, and other
parts ignored, it must be taken up
as a whole. After a careful examin
ation of the evidence, Capt. Tripp is
adjudged not guilty and discharged.
Deputy Marshal Dayton moved
on behalf of the Crown that judg
ment in the case of the girl be sus
pended. Tho motion was accepted.
In Oats' window at c some beautiful
marine pictures, which should be
seen by every one interested in
yachting and kindred amusements.
They aie all fine specimens of photo
graphy, and represent many of the
most "famous yachts of the present
day, including the champion Puritan,
and her English antagonist, the
cutter Genesla. The well-known
America, Gen. Butler, owner, should
receive notice, on account of her
tiiumph over the English ilcet at
Cowcs in '51, when the cup was won
and brought to the United States ;
and the sloop Mischief deserves
honorable mention for so success
fully defending it in '81 in the races
at New York with the Atalanla of
Toronto. One of the best pictures
in the collection shows the Puritan
leading the.fastschooncrFoituna, of
the Eastern Yacht Club, of Boston,
and two others represent the Boston
sloop on her trial trips off Marble
head Neck, theyachting headquarters
in Massachusetts Bay. The Mohi
can, oue of the largest schooners of
the New York fieet, is shown under
woiking sails in a very light wind,
giving iieauuini wave cnects, and
the swift schooner Grayling, also of
New Yoik, is making good headway
in a fair sailing breeze.
Among other views are those of
the sloop Priscilla, of New Y'ork,
the unsuccessful rival of the Puritan
in the trial races to decide which
yacht should meet the Genesta in
the contests at Sandy Hook, and of
the iron Cutter Bedouin, until re
cently considered a crack yacht, and
of the new steel steam yaolit Stiletto.
The vessels meutioncd above are
considered representative Americans,
but many more, netrly equal to them
in every respect, could be named in
a list including such famous schooners
as the Dauntless, Dreadna ught,
Magis, Madeleine, Columbia, Foam
and Sappho, and the sloops Grade,
Fanny and Shadow. It would have
been interesting to add a photograph
of the cutter Galatea, which next
year is to try and win the America
Cup f i om its present holders. But
the Puritan's present owner, Gen.
Chas. Paine, holds her ready to meet
anything of her size from beyond
Two prisoners, old jail birds,
escaped from the prison gang at
Liliue, Kauai, about two weeks ago.
Both were wearing balls and chains
at the time on account of an escape
made some time ago. Having got
their chains off, they stole a canoe,
and attempted to make their way to
somo points among the palis on the
western side of the Island. Off
Mnna point a sea upset the canoe,
and one of the men is supposed to
have drowned. Last Wednesday
the other man was driven by hunger
to seek food among those who would
not harbor him, nnd he wos cap
tured. Such occurieiiccs should re
mind the people of the Islands, that
their whole prison system is out of
harmony with the spirit of the age.
THE HONOLULU MINERS.
A letter from Mr. W. W. Adams
at Weatherby, Or., dated October
21th, has been received by Mr. A.
J. Cartw right, of this city, relating
the movements of the miners at the
above place. Mr. Adams regretted
not being able to send by this mail
a full repent of the doings for tho
summer and a complete report of
the claims that have been taken up.
The reason of tho delav. savs tho
writer, is not being far enough ad
vanced on tho work started on the
Parson and Missionary claims. A
man was nt work and would in a
few daj's subsequent to the writing
bo far enough into the ledge to give
a basis for an opinion. Mr. Adams
Bays that by the mail of tho 15th he
will probably send a full report of
the claims, intimating that the in
dications were very favorable,
SALE OF QUEEN EMMA'S EFFECTS.
There is a good attendance to-day
nt the sale of Her late Majesty
Queen Emma's effects, by Messrs.
E. P. Adams & Co., among many
prominent people present boing His
Majesty the King. Mr. Morgan,
who officiates, uses a magic wand
instead of a hammer, and with
fascinating cadences and florid dic
tion woos the wealth of his auditors
in exchange for the rich and regal
chattels. The King this forenoon
bought two classic marble busts for
$20 each. Hon. II. A. Widemann
for 30 secured the handsome book
rost that took thu prize at the Cen
tennial Exposition in 1876, and was
presented to Her late Majesty by
the Government. The piano fell to
Miss Stella, cousin of Queen Emma,
for 8375. Among the unsold articles
in the main parlor, two that attracted
much attention were the beautiful
baptismal font presented to the late
Queen, Dowager by Queen Victoria,
and the stereopticon given her by
Napoleon III. At noon a great deal
remained to be sold, and the auc
tion was proceeding briskly. Nov.
THE MOLOKAI TRAGEDY.
The tug Elcu returned from Molo
kai ycstciday afternoon with Mr.
Gibson and paity. l-rom the semi
official report in the Advertiser,
which as usual was the only paper
afforded picss privileges, it appears
that two men died from tho wounds
inflicted by the furious leper, Mo
nona, and a third is not out of
danger. There is no doubt that the
crime was premeditated, as the mur
derer had carried the butcher knife,
with which it was committed, from
the day previous to the murder. He
made lio sign of malice until his two
children were put on board with the
otheis. Suddenly he attacked the
acting sheriff, Kanohooahu, stabbing
him twice in the abdomen and once
in the shoulder. Another leper,
Lohiloa, held his victim to be
slaughtered. Next the ruffian made
a lunge at Kaimulau, the butcher,
who was standing Ivy, stabbing him
also in the abdomen. Here a man
named Mahiki interfered, and he re
ceived the second descending stroke
in tho groin, sustaining a severe
wound. Closing with the murderer,
Mahiki threw him down, seized the
knife and broke the .blade off. He
was about to strike the desperado
with the broken knife, when Father
D.unien interposed, took the knife
from him and threw it on the ground.
Kanohooahu declined to lie down
until the shipping was all effected,
as there was nobody to perforin his
duties. This was all on Thursday,
and Kanohooahu nnd Kaimulau, who
was his nephew, both died between
that and Saturday, when an inquest
In the meantime Monona had
been arrested, together with his ac
complice, Lohiloa, and consigned to
the hospital prison in irons. The
prisoners have been committed for
trial by Mr. Myers, superintendent
of the settlement, to the next term
of Court at Lahaina in December.
Yesterday evening, about five
o'clock, a native boy about ten or
twelve years old, living in the lane
leading to the Asylum, at Palama,
was flying a kite in the rear of a
Chinaman's house. It appears the
child's innocent sport in some way
exasperated the Mongolian, and
rushing from his woik he seized
the youngster by the throat with one
hand and threatened him with a
sickle held in the other. Some native
men, observing the outrageous pro
ceeding, rushed to the boy's protec
tion add compelled the Chinaman to
release his cruel grip. Seeing her
child safety guarded from further
molestation, the mother ran down
toward town, crying out, "Haul
in!" After a while she returned,
complaining that the policeman she
had summoned was very slow in
responding. A policeman was seen
far behind her, walking leisurely up
the road. Tho Chinaman appeared
with counsel in tho Police Court this
morning. He was remanded.
A few days ago wo published a
selection from an American paper,
containing some reminiscences of a
naval veteran named Sarvis, who
said his father was on board the
U. S. man-of-war Alliance during
the Revolutionary war. Hon. W. C.
Parke has informed a reporter of
this paper that he has tho official
lists of tho Alliance company at
that period, and they do not contain
the name of Sarvis, but tho man
indicated may havo been on board
under a different name, Mr. Parke
has certified copies of the records of
the Alliance, when the crew of that
ship mutinied in French waters
against Capt. Paul Jones, the latter
having gone insane. Tho grand
father of Mr, Parke was captain of
.marines on the vessel at the time,
and was selected by tho Navy De
partment at Washington to main
tain order on board during the
THE WATER WORKS.
A good deal of talk was occasion
ed about town to-day, by the ap
pearance of an official advertisement
stating that Mr. W. It. Seal was
from this dato "alone authorized to
collect water rates and dues on ac
count of the Honolulu Water
Works." Enquiry elicits the ex
planation given below. The Minis
ter of the Interior intends to havo
the whole water service surveyed,
with a view to making complete
plans of pipes, taps, etc., with rates
paid in each case, and cognato in
formation. For this purpose two
civil engineers arc to be employed,
rndMr. C. B. Wilson, Supciintend
cnt, will accompany one of them,
and Mr. Win. Auld, Clerk, the
other. With these important of
ficers absent from Iho office, it was
necessary to appoint an experienced
business man to conduct the finan
cial affairs of the department. This
is thu reason given for Mr. Seal's
appointment. Nov. 5th.
MURDER ON MOLOKAI.
A fatal tragedy occurred at the
Leper Settlement, Molokai, on
Thursday last. Some childien of
leprous parents were being put on
board the steamer J. I. Dowsett, to
be transferred to the Knpiolani Home
at Kakaako, Honolulu. Mr. Am
brose) Hutchison, assistant superin
tendent, assisted by thicc special
policemen, weie attending to .the
business. A leper named Momoiia,
said to be a relative of two of the
children, objecting to their traus
portation, got into a quarrel with
the officers. Making a nish at the
policemen with a knife, he slabbed
all three, wounding two of tliem
dangerously in the abdomen. One
or them had died, and the other was
not expected to live, at latest ac
counts. Early this morning Hon.
W. M. Gibson, President of the
Board of Health, and Mr. F. II.
llayseldcn, Secretmy, left on the
tug Eleu for Kalaupapa to investi
gate the tragedy. Nov. 2nd.
MR. MENKE'S DEATH.
Happily there is reason to believe
that Mr. Conrad Mcnke, of the
Ilumuula sheep ranch, did not com
mit suicide, but that his death was
accidental. After hearing the rumor
on Saturday that he had been found
dead, shot through the head, only a
quarter of an hour remained before
press time to gain further informa
tion. A reporter drove to the Hotel
to find the gcutleinan who was said
to have brought the news, but not
finding him there came down town
and was informed in a leading busi
ness office, that there was no doubt
of the affair being as stated. Mar
shal Soper, however, late in the
evening stated to the writer that he
had received a letter indicating that
there was no evidence of suicide.
The lamented gentleman had gone
to his room with the stated intention
of putting new carti idges m a rifle.
A report was heard in a few mo
ments, and Mr. Mcnke was found
immediately afterward with the side
of his head shot away. Death was
doubtlessly instantaneous. Deceased
was highly respected, in prosperous
circumstances, and had shown no
symptoms of suicidal intentions.
His untimely death has caused in
tense regiet among his manj' friends
in town. Nov. 2nd.
The city was startled this fore
noon with the sad news of the sud
den death, at 8 o'clock, of the aged
ex-Governor of Kauai, P. P. Kanoa.
The deceased had reached the age
of 82 years. It appears that some
time during the night ho stepped
out on the upper verandah of the
house. The door being open, and
the bar usually thrown across the
door having been accidentally re
moved, the old man stepped over,
and fell to the ground, a distance of
about ten feet, where he was found
at half-past four o'clock by a man
belonging to the house. Life was
not extinct at that time. Dr. Trous
seau was immediately summoned,
only to find that medical aid could
not avail anything. Deceased sur
vived only a few hours. The steamer
Jaincs Makee was immediately des
patched to Kauai to fetch home his
son, the present governor of that
island, and is expected to return
this evening. The appointment of
the funeral had not been announced
at tho time of going to press.
THE ASYLUM JRACEDY.
Knhclo is the name of the native
maniac who killed a Chinese fellow
patient at ' the Asylum yesterday.
Ah Fat is the name of his victim,
and both occupied cells adjoining
each other. The homicide was ad
mitted to the institution on August
9th last, and has been a dangerous
maniac from the first, having to be
restrained with a stiaiglit jacket and
n chain. His victim entered on Au
gust 10th, was n weak and not vio
lent man, always in dread of being
killed by somebody. Yesterday
morning at half-past six the patients
were let out of the cells for the
usual recreation, excepting Kaliele,
who could never bo trusted loose.
Ah Fat s'tole a way from the others,
NOVEMBEE 13, 1883.
and going into his neighbor's cell
was set upon by Knhclc, who
knocked him down nnd broke his
neck. Mi. Wright, superintendent,
was absent in "town on business.
Kuhaleloa, assistant keeper, was
cleaning tho room on tho other side
of All Fat's. He heard a slight
noise, and, suspecting something
wrong, entered Kalich-'a room.
There he found the Chinaman face
downward on the floor, blood issuing
from his mouth and nose, and the
powerful native holding him down
by the back of the neck. Ah Fat
w'as dead. Mr. Wright returning
shortly, at once went, back to town
for Dr. Webb, Asylum Physician,
and Deputy Marshal Dayton. An
inquest was held yesterday after
noon, wheu the foregoing facts were
elicited and a verdict in accordance
therewith rendered. Nov. 3rd.
A WORK OF ART.
An elaborate and meritorious
piece of sculpture in wood has been
produced by Mr. F. Otremba, at
liis house, 120 Nuuanii street. It
is a reduced model of the statue of
Ivainchamcha I. in the Government
yard. The figure of the monarch is
in ono piece of koa wood, the mantle
being gilded as in the original, and
tho spear is of kauwila wood. The
fluted capital is of black walnut, and
the remainder of the pedestal koa
with black walnut trimming and
facings. Upon the statue and the
four tablets the carving is very
creditable, the historical scenes on
the latter being finely executed.
The smooth surfaces wear a mirror
like polish. On Saturday last His
Majesty the King called at the
sculptor's house to inspect the work,
and cxpiesscd his satisfaction at the
fine workmanship displayed. .To-day
the statue will be placed on view in
King Bros.' art store, Hotel street.
Had it been completed earlier, it
would have mado a hands-ome addi
tion to the Hawaiian exhibit at New
Orleans and Louisville. Mr. Ot
remba is at work upon a second
model, and is prepared to execute
any order in wood carving with
which lie may be entrusted. Nov.
Mr. Young, manager of the Hono
lulu Iron Works, has been a heavy
loser, recently, from the depreda
tions of fowl thieves. On Saturday
night last the thefts culminated in
the taking of nine very valuable
Black Spanish fowls, which brought
Mr. Young's losses, from a short
time previously, up to about fifty
fowls of diffeient varieties. It seems
that on the night mentioned his
female watchdog was shut up under
the house with a litter of pups, and
so could not interfere with the
operations of the sneaking marau
ders. The foregoing is only one of
verjr many similar cases reported
lately, and, if the police do not
check the evil, the hardware mer
chants will soon be making heavy
profits in selling shotguns. Nov.
A large and happy company as
sembled at the residence of Mr. W.
Auld, Palama, last evening, to wit
ness and participate in the wedding
and attendant festivities of Mr.
Charles Lucas and Miss Mary Ban
nister. The decorations of. ever
greens were profuse, pretty, and
thoroughly in harmony with the
occasion. The grounds were brightly
illuminated with torches. The bride
wore a dress of white satin and bro
caded silk, tastefully and artistic
ally made, with a wreath of orange
blossoms and myrtle flowers on her
head. The bridal pair stood under
a bell of white roses and jessamines,
attended by Miss A. Bannister, sis
ter of the bride, and Mr. G. Lucas,
brother of the groom. The Right
Rev. Bishop of Olba impressively
rehearsed the marriage ceremony.
i wo large tables in the room were
literally crammed with an endless
variety of elegant, useful, and
costly presents. Congratulations,
feasting, vocal and ' instrumental
music, and dancing followed the
marriage ceremonial. The full Royal
Hawaiian Band, under the leader
ship of bandmaster Bergor, was in
attendance. The newly married
couple go to reside in their newly
erected and elegantly appointed
house on School street, accompanied
by the good wishes of a very large
circle of friends and acquaintances.
ROYAL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY.
In connection with tho intended
removal of tho exhibition building
from Kapiolani Park to the Govern
ment Nursery, tho Royal Hawaiian
Agricultural Society proposes to put
up the building without the floor,
and make tho interior attractivo by
a few ferneries, etc. When not
occupied for show purposes, the
mimiiiig will he used ns a propagat
ing house. This, it is is believed,
will facilitate the work of rnising
certain useful and ornamental plants
for distribution or otherwise, which
for want of such a shelter cannot
now bo cultivated. For tho purpose
above mentioned the sum of $500 is
needed, ami n subscription has been
started. The list is in tho hands of
Mr. Jaeger, and already contains
$235, subscribed by fifteen persons
in various amounts.
