NEWS BY THE ALAMEDA.
Tho Alameda brings two days'
later European news than our pre
vious latest dates. There is nothing,
however, of a specially exciting na
ture. The portfolios in the Hritish
Government of President of the
Local Government Board and of
Secretary for Scotland have passed
from Mr. Chamberlain and Mr.
Trcvclyan to Mr. Stansfleld and
Earl Dalhousio. A bill has been
introduced into the British Parlia
ment for the payment of members.
The riots in Belgium, of which the
previous mail brought exciting ac
counts, continue to spread. The
troops and rioters have had several
sanguinary conflicts, and many per
sons have been injured. A procla
mation has been issued, calling out
the Greek, reserves, which means
war. Russia has declined to sanc
tion Prince Alexander being made
perpetual Governor of Eastern Rou
melia. Repoit says that Russia has
taken possesion of Port Lazarcfl.
Franco and England are negotiating
respecting tho possession of the New
Hebrides islands, and it is said a
compromise would be suggested,
"whereby England would take pos
session of the island of Raiatca,
France annexing the New Hebrides
Group, nnd giving a guarantee to
abstain from deporting recidivistes
to the islnnds." This arrangement
would not bo satisfactory to the
Australians, and would probably
cause a bit of a stir. Of news from
the South, the item of most interest
to us is the one containing the in
telligence that "Sir Julius Vogel
has arranged with the Union and
Oceanic Steamship Companies to
make the San Francisco service a
through service, that is to say, with
out any break at Honolulu. To this
arrangement the Postmaster-General
of New South Wales has given his
sanction, subject to the ratification
of the New South Wales Parlia
ment." EDITORIAL NOTES.
A case of consummate sloth and
improvidence combined, very dis
creditable to the Hawaiian character,
appears in the record of the Police
Court to-day. On the 18th tilt.
Capt. Luce, tax collector, obtained
judgment against an able-bodied na
tive in tho sum of 88.50, for taxes.
The judgment not having been satis
lied, defendant was brought before
Judge Bickerton to-day, and, having
stated his unwillingness of undertak
ing honest labor to earn tho nmount
of his taxes, submitted instead to
being consigned to tho prison gang
to work it out at twenty-five cents a
day, or durance vile for thirty-four
Among tho unusually large num
ber of through passengers by the
Alameda there was a party of
over thirty who had intended, on
leaving Australia, to have remained
awhile on these Islands, under tho
impression that an intermediate
steamer, midway between tho Aus
tralian steamers, would afford them
an opportunity of proceeding on
their journey. But on learning,
after landing hero, that there would
bo no steamer for nearly a month,
they decided not to stay. This may
bo put down as so much loss to the
business community of Honolulu
and tho inter-island steamship com
panies, besides showing tho inconvenience-
to tho public of tho
Oceanic Steamship Company's pie
scnt arrangement of despatching
two steamers within three days,
with a blank of nearly a month
following without any steamer at

Tho S.S. Kinau left "the Wilder
Steamship Company's wharf, Hono
lulu, on Tuesday, March JJOth, hav
ing on board His Majesty King
Knlakaua nnd suite, accompanied by
the Royal Hawaiian Military Band.
This narrator took an upper bunk in
room M. on tho huriicanc deck, had
a good supper of salt horse and
pickles with Cnpt. King, and about
8 o'clock turned in ; but tho stcamci
tolled fearfully, felt mote particu
laily on upper deck. I had to give
in, and had a regular spell of sea
sickness. All the pickles nnd salt
horso were jettisoned, after which
slcen. rather uneasy in the tossing
from side to side, camo to the relief
of tho v. eary. Wo arrived at Laha
ina in good 'time; everyone on deck;
no more sleep ; took passengers and
freight, and went on.
It was a beautiful night, water
calm nnd smooth. Having taken a
cup.of coffee and ciackcrs, I felt
much better; but soon the wild
waves began playing again, and
when near Maalaea Bay it blew a
gale. Took passengers and freight
there. On boatd came jovial .Joe
Wiseman with the clever stomach
speaker, Mr. Millis. Went to bed
again, for a locking to and fro
through the Alcnuihaha.
At lived on tune at luanuuona, a
baircn place but full of life boats
and trains going nnd coming. Killed
the time by reading novels. At
last went off to Kawailmc ; landed
everything for there, went on and
passed Mahukona again. But now
came the tug of war rolling, pitch
ing, stamping, on we went. But the
eye gets satisfaction, after a long
stretch of ban en country, in tho
beautiful slopes of Kohala and
llamakua districts. The verdant
hue of everything is refieshing till
it gets dark. Then supper and once
moiotryto sleep, with very little
Soon wo reach Laupahochoe, with
its immense cliffs and rocks. The
Imnts have there a lively time, but
at last wc went to Ililo, arriving
there early on 'lhursday morning.
Ililo showed rather an unpleasant
face for her royal visitor then. It
rained and drizzled all morning, but
everybody was glad to go ashore.
Adieu, beautiful Kinau; an revoir
till next week.
Ililo had put on a gay appearance
for the royal visitor, and the heavens
soon smiled again. Everybody got
into comfortable quarters and all
soon forgot tho sea voyage. Befoie
long the Royal Hawaiian Band
struck up, down makai on the wharf,
making everybody delighted and
thankful for His Majesty's kindness
in bringing the band. In the even
ing all the prominent citizens and
ladies called on His Majesty, at his
temporary residence, the liouso ot
II. R. II. Piincess Poomaikalani,
Governess of Hawaii. The baud
played, but the lain coming down
everybody had to look for shelter.
Still all felt merry, and soon the
beautiful meles of Hawaii filled tho
air with sweet sounds ; tho heavens
again became piopitions, so that tho
band was able to entertain tho
eagerly-listening crowd till about
10, when all went homo delighted.
So ended the Ilrst day.
Friday was beautiful spotless
sky and fiesh air. The strains of
tho band could be heard ogam at
His Majesty's residence. E cry-
body amused himself to the full.
By night the nobility of Ililo assem
bled at tho house of Mr. Severance,
where the bund again played, re
ceiving many rounds of applause.
Tho skies threatened more moisture
but withheld it.
Saturday was bright, the band
playing while calls were being mado
on the Kiue, and busy to and fro.
In tho afternoon His Majesty ordered
it to play at tho house of Judgo
Akau. Thcro was a gay crowd of
youngsters and many visitors from
the district. It was a lovely after
noon. A grand promenade concert
was given at the Court House in the
evening free to everybody and
everybody availed of the opportu
nity. Sunday was rather drizzly no
sun at all Church bells were pealing
from all directions, and the first
place was given to devotions. Litllo
parties on horseback and foot were
also organized to explore tho vicin
ity. Monday opened rather cloudy and
fresh, rain soon coming down in
torrents. In spite of it a ciowd
assembled in tho afternoon at Mr.
Arnold's house, whcio tho band
played on the verandah. Ililo
really looks pretty in tho rain, clouds
of vapor rising seen tlnough tho
trees mako a picturesque scene. Mr.
Rose, tho genial tinsmith of Ililo
Bay, gave a little party. Tho host
understanding tho attof entertain
ing mado all his guests happy, while
the rain was bo subdued as not to
seriously dampen tho occasion.
Tuesday was miserable from a
deluge of lain. Tho band tried to
play in tho morning, but had to givo
it up. This sort of weather con
tinuing, Ililo was cheated out of a
day's music. Grave feais wore eli
te: tained of next day birthday of
tho Governessthe day wo had
coiuo to celebrate, Iho event, how
over, dissipated all gloomy vaticina
tions, as though the heavens had
bestowed mercy on us poor crea
tines. Wednesday was a beautiful

Boat racing in the morning, Luau
in the nflcmon, Ball in tho evening.
Tho Kinau had arrived tho night
before, bringing additional visitois
from Honolulu and way ports.
Early in tho morning the band struck
up at tho Governess residence;
then came tho boat racing, in which
the Honolulu boat was the winner,
although the crow got a severe
Tho luau was spread in tho Couit
House large room, with tho usual
good things ono of tho most ex
cellent being the absence of all in
toxicating beverages. Anintciesting
feature of the afternoon was the
Ililo Cadots, under command of
Lieutenant Ilipa of tho Queen's
Own, which was very good indeed.
All went merrily.
In the evening all the beauty and
nobilitv assembled at the Court
House and had a splendid time, the
gentlemen fiom Ililo adding to the
list of dances. All went joyfully
home, delighted in having helped to
add a red-letter day to tho Ililo
For Thin sday thcro were on the
tapis an ico cream festival and pic
ture exhibition, the latter being tho
works of the celebrated Tavernier.
The affair was an entire success. Mr.
Tavernier made a present of a beauti
ful landscape to tho ladies. Mr.
Cornwell auctioned it off well, tho
ladies making a handsome profit of
S-100, that goes for benevolence.
With that ended the festival.
Ililo made a wry face on Fiiday,
rain again, but all were making
haste to be off, although tho steamer
only left at fi o'clock in the after
noon. Farewell, beautiful Hilo,
with verdant-clad slopes on high,
but too much- lain! The homew ard
trip was better than tho outward
not so much wind. AVo reached
Laupahochoe on tune, and off for
Kawaihae. There was a gtaim
sight. The grass and kulu weic on
lire, and all thought the Volcano
had broken out afiesh; but nothing
of the kind, only bush fires. On
Satin day morning wo i cached Mahu
kona, whcio wc had to lie for nearly
twelve hours to take sugar on
board. t All wcn,t on shore. The
natives' of Kohala had spread a nice
luau for the royal visitor. Every
body had to kill time as well as
possible, some going mauka on the
train to take a peep at the country,
others remaining on the beach to
tease old Smithies and yam with the
railroad men. Anchor was weighed
at 4 o'clock, genial Hon. Sam.
Parker being given a lift to Kawai
hae. We took our last dinner on
board, and all turned in to avoid
the dangeis of the Alcnuihaha.
Reached Maalaea and Lahaina on
time, and home at about G o'clock.
Tho royal party were lcceivcd with
tho usual salute and a rally of the
military, together with a largo con
course of people. So ended tho
royal visit to Ililo.
Tho King was the most pleasant
fellow in tho whole crowd, and tho
most popular, too.
The band played twice, and
sometyncs three times a day, at
Hilo, with the exceptions noted
Sam, Jack, Charlie and Billy
were the most handsome men at
the Hilo festival, and much ad
mit ed for their graceful dancing.
