TILE DAILY BULLETIN SUMMARY: HONOLTJLtJ H; Ir, SATUTTDAY, 2T0YBMBEU 91, 1B83,
THE KING'S. BIRTHDAY.
Loyal Couktesies Full ltnroiiT or
Tin: Festivities anu Regatta.
November lGtli dawned with rather
depressing weather for tho festivi
ties attendant upon the celebration
of His Majesty's birthday. Haiti
was falling intermittently up till
about 10 o'clock. At suniio Cap
tain O'Connor, of the Queen's Own,
directed tho firing of a royal salute
from the shore battery, Kakaako.
This was repeated at noon and at
sunset, the detachment of .the
Queen's Own on each occasion,
headed by its fifo and drum band,
being inarched to and from the fort
by the captain. Their accurate
inarching and military Hearing, not
withstanding their youthfulness,
compelled the universal admiration
of all bcholdcis. In the intervals
between salutes Captain O'Connor
furnished a guard of honor at the
Iolani Palace and took his men to
enjoy the regatta.
Among the llrst calls made upon
His Majesty was that of the Police
of Honolulu, led by Deputy-Marshal
Dayton and Olllccr William Tell and
headed by the Reformatory School
Band. Then came tho Chinese
Benevolent Society. Their spokes
man, Mr. W. C. Akana, presented
His Majesty with a handsome silver
service. His . congratulations were
cordially responded to by the King.
The pupils of the Royal Sehool
marched to the Palace, headed by
the Royal Hawaiian Baud, and
greeted the sovereign with songs in
honor of his birthday. Below we
give a full report of the regatta, that
has become the main feature of this
holiday. Its vai ions events passed
off with remarkable smoothness, and
the "scene made up of joyful
crowds on the water fiont, and the
shipping beautifully decked with
bunting was a very animating one.
The Royal Hawaiian and the Re
formatory School ''bands alternated
in playing inspiring music from
morning to evening.

Theie was intense interest bes
towed upon this race, the main
event of the day. Winning tho toss,
the Iolanis took the inside position.
They also took water first, but had
lost ground when the lighthouse was
reached, the Myrtles then slightly
leading. This order was shortly
after reversed, but it was a close
race to the turning line. At that
place, the Myrtles experienced tho
full disadvantage of the outside
position. So great was the detour
they hud to make to round their
stake boat, that spectators on shore
thought they had gone away out of
their course. They were, however,
only obeying the orders of the
judges, who afterward told them
they might have turned the other
buoy by taking the risk of fouling.
A heavy sea shipped by their boat
added to the Myrtle crew's embar
rassment, and they were badly
beaten on the home stretch. Pomai.-
kelani won in 23m., .is. ; Alice M.,
23m. , 15s.
G Swimming Race Prize, So.
Free to all. Entries open to all

The original entiics were de
faulted, but Kuemaka, Pocpoe and
Moki responded to the bugle. The
course was from the judges' boat to
the I. I. S. S. Co.'s wharf. The
three swimmers approached the
wharf in triangular order, Kuemaka
and Pocpoe abreast. The former
touched the wharf about one second
ahead, but with big right and left
arm strokes increased the distance
by about a length on the return, and
reached the winning point a half
second in advance of Pocpoe. Time,

The circumstances of this race
were much the same as those of the
senior six-oared race, the "King's
Crew" getting choice of position
with all its advantages. Thero was
a notablo contiast between the res
pective physiques of the crews.
That of the Kaiulani was composed
of strongly built young men, while
the Mvrtlcs were mainly slender
youths. The Kaiulani boat had
gained the lead before the light
house wa3 reached, increasing it to
the end of tho race. Winning time,
lGm. 53s. ; 2nd, 17m. 53s.
Intermission was readied shortly
before noon, the preceding races
having all been despatched with re
markable precision and promptness.
Now came a race between crews
respectively drawn from the black
smiths and the machinists of the
Honolulu Iron Works.
Blacksmiths J. Kealoha, James
Mansard, Jos. McKechnie, Charles
Crozicr, W. Fredenberg, Jas. Crow,
and T. McGuirc, coxswain.
Machinists Win. Roc, coxswain ;
iiugli McMillan, Harry Drysdale,
Jos. Kcla,Kahulu, Ilookaumnha and
Kalolii. This was a hard contest
of developed muscle well applicdvto
the oar. The blacksmiths took the
water first, but the machinists took n
slight lead for a short distance ; but
their heavy boat began to tell against
thorn, The blacksmiths gained the
lead boforo tho lighthouse was
passed, and maintained it, and were
ahead about a minute at the turning
buoy. The machinists on the homo
stretch partly closed up tho gap,
and the regular uniform strokes of
both boats made n protty picture
viewed fiom the main stand. Round
ing the lighthouse and in the re
mainder of the con rso the black
smiths increased their lead and
came in just ono minuto and live
seconds ahead. Time, 21in. 15s, ,
and 22m, 10s.

12m. 57s. How n yacht that sailed
the llrst-class race could contest the

This time the Myrtle crew secured

White; Tippecanoe, II. Y. B. C,
Red, Blue and Yellow.
All the above made default, but
the canoes Mokauca, Awai, and
Kahohino came to the line. This
race created a furore of fun and ex
citement. The Kahohino had not
sailed far until she was so badly left
that she gave it up. Uproarious
cheers greeted the remaining con
testants from every point of observ
ation. Off Wilder's wharf the two
were coming in about even, raising
the excitement among the specta
tors to the screaming pitch. Half
way between Wilder's and the I. I.
S. N. Co.'s wharves, the leading
canoe lost wind and headed for the
shore. Getting righted she was
about starting on her course when a
similar mishap overlook her com
petitor, upon which the two boats
fouled and spent some time in get
ting disentangled. The Mokauea's
bow got within about five yards of
the line, when she again cranked,
and her rival coming up threatened
to pass, but she too cranked, and
both getting riyhted about the same
moment, crossed the line together
the Mokauca about one yaid in ad
vance. Owing to the foul the judges
ordered both canoes out again,
when the Mokauea won the race
over again in 11m. 27s.
13 Diving Contest Prize, $5.
Free to all. Open to time of con
test. Palahu, Poepoc, and Kaukahaka
Palahu is a venerable-looking
native with a long gray beard, the
other two contestants are young men
of evidently good lung and muscle
development. At the word "go,"
three brown figures were seen turn
ing a short somerset in the air and
going into the water head first. After
what seemed a long wait to the
spectators, Poepoe's head appeared
above water near the boat, and
Kaukahaka's curls showed up in tho
sunlight at a considerable distance
off, but, as yet, Palahu had not
reported himself. The information
brought up by Pocpoe was that tho
old man was holding on by the buoy
chain. Going down a second time
to sen how Palahu was getting on,
ho returned with word that he was
there still. The spectators, by this
time, began to get nervous. When
it seemed bottled that Palahu had
surely determined to stay to dinner
witli the mermaids, his gray beard
made its appearance on the surface,
and he was, of coupse, greeted with
rousing cheers and declared tho
winner of the diver's prize. Ho had
been under water two minutes and

was issued, by the Kawaihao Boat

The Nuonnos led off at the start,
but had not pulled far until they
were distanced by the Homais, who
continued gradually increasing tho
gap betweeu them and the others
until the finish. The Naonaos did
not como back to the line, having
abandoned tho contest on tho return,

Course Same as in No. 5. Kuliai
kaniiu, Hon. J. A. Cummins, Red

esty's Chamberlain, Blue and White.
This race attracted a great deal
of attention. Many of the spec
tators who had up to this lime, kept
their seats on the stand, got up and
pressed forward to the front. Others
stood on chairs and boxes, and pro
gress was reported about every
minute by those having the advan
tage of glasses or of good eyesight.
The Hanakeokis had the inside posi
tion, and led out to the lighthouse;
and had gained about a length at
that point. The Kuliaikanuus, how
ever, soon closed the gap, and took
the lead. The contest was pretty
close, but the race was spoiled by
the stake boat near the bell buoy
having been removed, so that Mr.
Cummins had only an imaginary
turning point to go round. Col.
Judd claimed that his opponent had
not. turned the bell buoy, but simply
waited for the Hanakeoki to do so,
and then bent his oars for the home
stretch. The judges, boat was
passed by the Kuliaikanuu in 27m.,
45s., and the Hanakeoki in 27m.,
55s. ; but the judges declared the
race null and void.
The band then struck up Hawaii
Pouoi, which tho crowds accepted as
a notice to disperse ; and the great
Hawaiian Regatta of 1885 was over.

lowing currespondence between the

Washington, Sept. 22, 1885.
Priifebsor A. Aiasxiz, Cam
bridge, Mass. : Sir I am authorized
by the president to offer to j'ou the
olllce (now vacant) of superinten
dent of the United States coast and
geodetic survey, and to express to
you his most earnest wish that you
will accept the offer and give to the
government the benefit of your scienti
fic experience and business energy.
I beg leave to add for myself an
equally urgent request that yon will
accept the place. The bureau needs,
at this moment more than ever, the
care and guidance, not only of
superior scientific faculties, but of
the very best executive ability. We
arc convinced that you can satisfy
both of these urgent needs, and be
a worthy successor of even the most
distinguished among the very com
petent and illustrious men who have
been at the head of its forces. Use
ful and important as the work of the
bureau has been, much and even
more useful and important work
remains to be done. Your accept
ance of tho olllce now tendered to
you, without solicitation on your
part, will be an assurance to the
country, we hope, that while pro
secuting its great purposes with
judicious economy, a scientific in
telligence of tho broadest and highest
order will surely mark tho progress
of tho bureau. May wo not hope,
if you shall hesitate about postpon
ing for a little your present work at
Cambridge and tho pursuit of tl.a
specialty which so much interests
you, that you will, beforo making a
final decision, como to Washington,
and by a personal conference with
the president and myself, be con
vinced how urgent and exceptional
it is at this moment, botli for the
government and the real interests of
American scienco, that faculties and
reputation such as you happily
possess may bo at the head of tho
coast survey. Very respectfully
j'ours, Daniel Maxnino.

To the Honorable Daniel Man
7iii, Secretary of the Treasury:
Sir I cannot feel but highly flat
tered nt tho offer of tho position of
superintendent of tho United States
coast survey, made to me on behalf
of the president, in your letter of
in advance of the Labais,
the 22(1. In declining this offer,
tendered in such a cordial manner, I
have given all possible weight to the
reasons urged in favor of my accept
ance. It would be a pleasure to mo
to express to tho president nnd
yourself my thanks in person for
tho honor conferred upon mo, which
I must, however, respectfully declinu
for various reasons. As I am
neither a professional mathematician
nor physicist, I do not think my
appointment would be acceptable to
my scientific colleagues as head of
tho coast survey. There arc, if I
am not mistaken, two gentlemen, at
least, in the service of the govern
ment, and two civilians who are
eminent specialists well fitted for
the post. Except in one case I am
unable tospcak from any knowledge of
their executive nbilitj. Under these
circumstances 1 do not feel it my
duty to take your proposition into
consideration, even were other rea
sons which kept tnc at Cambridge nt
present such as could be ignored.
But 1 ma add that I have charge
of important interests on which my
scientific future depends, and which
I could not honestly jeopardize. My
health is such also that I am com
pelled every winter to absent myself
for at least three months, so that the
little time I have at my command
for scientific woik would be com
pletely sacrificed were I to move to
Washington and begin anew in a
Held which is not my own. While I
am forced to tho decision, wliich
must be considered final, 1 cannot
refrain from expressing my gratifica
tion at the interest shown by the
administration in the appointment of
a worthy successor to the former
superintendent of the coast survey.
That I should be named in this con
nection is a proof of confidence
which I value highly. Unquestion
ably, it is essential at this monent,
both to the government and the in
terests of science throughout the
country, 'that the head of so im
portant a scientific bureau should be
possessed of the highest scientific
capacity, honesty and executive
1 am extremely obliged for your
cordial invitation to visit Washing
ton. Were I to accept it, however,
sensible as I am of the force of the
arguments so kindly urged upon me
by the president and yourself, I
could only apply them in order to
press the claims of otheis, and
a-sist, if possible, in making an ap
pointment satisfactory to the ad
ministration and to the best interest
I remain, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
Worcester Spy, Oct. 8th.

The monthly meeting of this
organization wa3 held last evening,
Mr. J. B. Atherton in the chair.
The Treasurer reported receipts of
the month $100.45, and the net
balance on hand at present $109.44.
Tho collection taken at the meeting
amounted to $15.75. An elaborate
report was given by the General
Secretary Mr. Fuller of his recent
visit, as delegate, to the California
State Association and of what was
said and done there. A brief report
was also given by Mr. Henry Water
house, associate delegate. One as
sociate and one voting member were
elected. The average number, per
week, of visitors to tho Reading
Room, during the month, was three
hundred and two. Over three hun
dred papers have been sent away
by tho Morning Star. Three Ger
man and ono Portuguese papers
have been ordered. A letter was
read from Miss J. 11. Spurgeon,
Queen's Hospital, saying that she
wishes to make a large scrap book
for tho Hospital, and requesting,
generally, contributions of pictures,
cards, mosses, ferns, and particu
larly of an old ledger of a large
size or two of moderate size, and
other materials suitable for tho pur
pose. Orders were also solicited
for making gent's smoking caps,
window lambrequins, wall bags,
mending and other light work. Mr.
P. C. Jones reported that the tem
perance committee are keeping an
eye on Rev. Mr. Noble, and expect
to have him hero in April, when
there will bo a shaking up, in Ha
waii, on the temperance question.
FIRE AT KILAUEA.
The plantation bell sent forth an
alarm last evening about 7 o'clock,
which induced everybody to turn
out. From nn illumination in tho
skies it was self-evident there was a
fire, which proved to bo in Mr.
Macfle's dwelling house. Tho family
had just partaken of dinner when
they were surprised by a China boy
rushing in crying out, "Fire." Mrs.
Macfie looked to her children, while
Mr. Macflo immediately repaired to
tho scene of tho fire, when ho found
tho roof iu full blaze. In n few
moments afterwards nearly every
hum and man on the plantation were
there, and each and evcryono set
about the work before them in a
businesslike manner. In less than an
hour the Dames were subdued, the
fire having been confined to tho
kitchen and adjoining room. It hap
pened the fire broke out on the leo
side of the house, otherwise the
whole building would have been
swept away, as a sniatt breeze pre
vailed nt the time. Too much praiso
cannot bo accorded to everybody
who took part in tho work to bo
clone, and which they accomplished
successfully. The premises, I tin

is covered by instil iiuce' in the Sun
