is thronged a itli natives of both
sexes and many foreigners. The
Government patty claimed to bo
about live hundred ahead at noon,
when they probably had polled most
of their Hticngth. Voters were still
keeping up a steady procession nt
half-past one o'clock. There was a
good deal of haranguing going on
from the man at verandah of the
Government building, but good
nature seemed to rule the throngs.
A telephonic message from Kancohe
states that the Independent candi
dates are well ahead in the districts
on that side of the Island, particu
larly mentioning Mr. Howell in
Waialua. Feb. 3rd.

crowd was assembled from the clos

for the figures. The judges were:
Justice Blckeiton, Capt. Luce and
Mr. Fred. Wundcnbcrg. Capt. J.
II. Brown had charge of one ballot
box and Mr. Wtindcnbcrg of the
other. While waiting for the an

THE FIREMEN'S PARADE.
At half-past nine o'clock, this
morning, firemen in their gay uni
forms were seen to be mustering on
and about tho corner of Fort and
Hotel streets and in front of the
bell-tower, the headquarters of the
fire brigade. In front of this build
ing was drawn up Engine No. 2, to
which were harnessed four magnifi
cent prancing grays. The Royal
Hawaiian Band and tho Reformatory
School Hand were also on, the
ground, playing a series of stirring
pieces, as Bandmaster Berger's
"boys" only know how to play. The
engine was profusely dccoiated with
ferns, flowers and palm leaves. The
engineers and drivers took their
positions under beautifully con
structed evergreen and lloral arches,
and on each side of the engine an
uiched canvas was fixed bearing the
Inscription J803-2-188G. Tho IIoso

No. 1 Engiiic,drawnby fourilnobnys,
had taken up a position at tho corner
of Foit and Hotel streets. Another
engine and nlso" a hose cai t stood
further up Fort street towards Bere
lauia. No. 1 Engine, though in use
some seven years, is in lino order
and the decorations, though not so
elaborate as those of No. 2, weio
exceedingly tasteful and well ar
ranged. Hvcry engine, in short,
was dressed in full holiday costume.
The Chinese company's decorations,
besides several curious Mongolian
fancies, consisted partly of thu irre
pressible and ubiquitous triangular
yellow diagon Ihms. An operator
from Mr. ,7 .J. Williams's photograph
establishment planted his camera in
front of No. 2 Knginc, at the sluil,
and subsequently took views of the
other three engines at different
points on the line of march. The
procession was led by two axemen
of each company. After the axe
men, a well-conditioned native
policeman fell in. Next to the
police otllcer came the Hoyal Ha
waiian Band. Chief Engineer Nott,
First Assistant Engineer M. D.
Monsarrat, and other olllcers of the
brigade took position next to the
band. The companies followed in
rotation, Nos. 1,2,4,5. The Ite
formatory School Band headed the
native company No. I. Protection
Company No. 1 fell in between
No. -I and No. .r, and formed a
conspicuous feature of the parade.
A jolly Chinaman, wearing an enor
mous mask rrpiesenting the head of
a lion, followed by bome half-a-dozen
attendants bearing a gorgeous
Haiti representing the body and tail
of the monster; standatd bearers
carrying aloft banners and Hags;
companies of halberdiers and trident
bearers, were features of the China
men's (No. 5) turnout that created
a furore of excitement, particularly
among the small boys, all along the
route of the procession. The force
turned out altogether about l.'iO
strong, and the whole display was
one of which a more pretentious city
than Honolulu might well feel proud.
FIRE IN THE SUBURBS.
HON'. II. A.
vim:mann's iiousk iiuiixi:i
About four o'clock yesterday
afternoon the alarm was given for a
fire in the residence of Hon. II. A.
Widemann, on Berctania street, at
l'unahou. The lirst engine to reach
the spot was No. 2, but the flames
hod progressed so far that the saving
of the house was impossible. Before
the arrival of the brigade the inmates
of the house, assisted by neighbors,
managed to save most of the parlor
furniture and a few prized articles,
including pictures of two daughters
of Mr. Widemnim who died in Ger
many, a line oil painting of Kanielia
meha V., and an upright piano. The
house was burned tolheground, and
for a time Col. .Itidd's residence was
in danger ftoiu the sparks blowing
It is supposed the fire originated
from children setting off fire-crackers
in a bedroom. One child in fright
crept under the bed, and had a
narrow escape for its life. Mr. and
Mrs. Widemann were absent at
Waianac, and received the news of
the disaster by telephone. They
lose many household treasures, the
accumulations of years, which no
insurance policy can cover. The
total loss is estimated at Sl.r,000 ;
insurance of $8,000.in the Hamburg
Magdeburg Co., for which Mr. A.
Jaeger is agent.
The new truck of the Hook &
Ladder Company broke down
opposite the Ivawaiahao Church, on
the way to the fire.
A MacNcalc & Urban safe, filled
with plate and jewellery, came
through the fire, and on being open
ed this forenoon the contents were
found uninjured only some spoons
being a little discolored. Two dia
mond rings that were in a valise have
been found in the ashes, the frame
of the valise showing where to look
for them. Feb. 6th.

schooner Doniililu having been seen
in Hawaii channel bottom up. Tho
schooner Waituiilu on her way from
this poit to Hilo fell in with the
Domitila about ten miles oil" Kohala

boats was loweied and manned, and
thu wreck, after being secuiely fast

many sharks aboiil tho Domitila,
some huge inan-ealeis, and notwith
standing the piesenco of the voraci

around his waNt, and then dived and
swam underneath the wreck, having

Domitila cost exactly $G,u(H) when
she left the stocks, and was iusuicd
for sf-1,000. Her ciew consisted of
six: Capt. Sanfoid, an American;
one Portuguese, two Italians, onu
Chinaman and one kanaka. Hlie
also had a young Englishman on
board as a passenger. No steps have
as yet been taken to recover the hull
of the ill-fated vessel.
FIRE AT HONUAPO.
By the steamer W. G. Hall that
arrived yesterday afternoon tidings'
of a disastrous fire were received.
Last Wednesday, about mid-day,
when the wind was blowing fiercely
from the south, a fire was discover
ed in the cane fields of Honuapo
plantation, Kau, Hawaii. All hands
of that plantation united to fight the
Haines, but owing to the violence of
the wind, the inflammability of the
cane and the intensity of the heat,
all attempts to check the flames were
without avail. Ono of the planta
tions hands, a Japanese, was suffo
cated and burnt to death while fight
ing tho fire. Three acres of cane
were burnt to the ground in fifteen
minutes, and there being no more
combustible material to leeward the
Haines exhausted themselves. The
fire originated from a spark blown
from trash burned on the premises,
the previous day. Jan. 23rd.
THE J. I. DOWSETT CHANGED HANDS.
Negotiations for the sale of the
steamer Jas. I. Dowsett have been
brought to a close. The Pacific
Navigation Co. have bought the
steamer at a private price. She
will be transferred to the P. N. Co.
on Monday next, and will be put on
a route to Maui immediately. The
P. N. Co. have contracted to bring
to Honolulu all Paia and Ilamakua
Poko sugars at S2..')() per ton. A
bridgo is about to be built at Paia
for the P. N. Co., and the Dowsett
is expected to make two trips a
week. She will probably be supple
mented by schooners.
Mr. Wtindcnbcrg, by the sale of
the steamer, does not relinquish the
Molokai route. He will run
schooners there until another steamer
is built for him. Feb. 2nd.
REAT ESTATE SAFE.
The real estate sale by E. P.
Adams & Co., this noon, opened
with the salu of a lease of Ilalawa
Fishery for five years, which was
knocked down to Afoon at S825 per
year. Of the Kalihi lots, which
were next offered, six had already
been disposed of private sale, and
the balance were withdrawn. With
reference to the Booth property, thu
auctioneer stated that at the request
of certain intending purchaseis, it
would not be offered in subdivisions
until Feb. 15th. The estate was
then offered as a whole, but failing
a satisfactory bid was withdrawn
until the before mentioned date.
A CHINESE SERENADE.
Last evening about five o'clock a
procession of Chinese, headed by
the dragon and attendant buffoons
gaily clad in colored pongees,
marched to the residence of His
Excellency C. T. Gulick, Minister
of the Interior, and serenaded that
gentleman and his amiable consort
witli a fearful din of fireworks,
gongs and tom-toms. They planted
two gorgeous, silken banners a
cylindrical one of rare beauty and a
shield-shaped one equally rich in
material on either side of the front
entrance. The procession went
several times round the house, cut
ting up all soils of capers, and the
happy Celestials were graciously re
ceived by Mr. and Mrs. Gulick.
