A ctmious incident of Sunday
lu'ght has just been heard of. Some
leekless persons entered tho store of
Quong On Keo it Co., Nuuanu street,
opposite Freeth it Peacock's, on tho
night above mentioned, and with
axes cut oil' the combination knob of
their safe, winch of course prevented
the opening of it even by those who
know the combination. The depie
dators were evidently bent upon
getting money, but were hafllcd by
their ignorance of the structure and
mechanism of the safe.
DtiiiiNCi yesteiday and to-day Mr.
It. More has been busily employed in
opening safes that had passed the
ordeal of Sundav's liie, piiucipallv
McNeil it Uurb.m's, for which C. O.
Berger is agent. Some of these safes
had been exposed to great heat and
wcie badly dilmagcd on tho outside,
but in every case tho contents were
in n state of complete preservation.
Several of Hall's Safes, for which
Geo. Engclluudt is agent, wero aho
opened, some by tho combination.
Their contents wore in good condi
tion. One horn the store of Quong
Ing Sing it Co., corner of Hotel and

not even scorched.

ANOTHER FIRE ROBBERY.
The movables belonging to the
Sailors' Homo were carried out on
Sunday evening, and deposited in
front of the Po3t Olllce. Mr. Laing,
manager of the establishment, re
ports a large lot of new lowqls and
bed linen missing. The most of
the bed linen was marked "Duns
comb," and towels and pillow cases
marked "Laing." After the alarm
was over, it was further discovered
that the baggage room had been
broken open, and tho contents of
trunks scattered about. Three
boxes of fowls wero also taken,
some of them being Spanish, and of
THE IVY HOLMES.
The steamer Ivy Holmes arrived
last night from Hilo, via Mahukona,
with a broken roller of Wainaku
mill, to be repaired at the Foundry.
The Holmes is commanded by Cap
tain Cooke, the "old pirate," ns he
terms himself, and he makes the
report given below :
The Wainaku mill broke down
last Monday morning, nt 10 o'clock,
and in consequence has suspended
operations until tho return of the
roller. The weather is fearfully
rough nt Hilo and all along that
coast. The schooner Canute, after
being towed to sea from her dan
gerous position between Paukaa and
Papalkou, on Wednesday of last
week, was anchored at the latter
place when the Ivy Holmes left,
aird is encountering very rough
weather. The Holmes was twelve
hours from Hilo to Mahukona,
where she put in on account of the
roughness of the sea and the strong
winds then blowing, She left Mahu
kona at )J o'clock Monday morning
for this port, and when four hours
out, while tho vessel was being uu-
merolfully tOBSod hy tho hujio hlU
lows, tho piston rod and a cylinder
broke. She was put under sail for
the remaining distance nnd Captain
Cooke says he thought at times the
vessel would founder. Tho Btcanicr
brought, besides the roller above
mentioned, 180 bags of sugar for
Haekfcld & Co. She is clocked nt
the fish market, and after repairs
to her machinery will return to
The Honolulu Rifles will nsscmblo
at the Armoiy at 7 :30 o'clock this
evening, for a full dress inspection.
After which they will march to the
Shooting Gallery, Port street, and
in file order will shoot live shots
each at tho target. They will use
their regular Springfield rifles, with
six grains of powder and a ball pro
pared hy Mr. Nicoll. An iron tar
get will be shot at, behind which is
a seven-inch bulkhead to stop the
bullets, if the target should be
missed. The company has already
procured two medals, one gold and
tho other silver, to be offered as
prizes for the best markmanship at
target shooting, during the ancamp
incut on tho 11th of June. The pin
fessional shots of the Rifles, Unger,
Higgins and others, will not com
pete for the medals, thereby giving
the junior marksmen a chance.
These medals, after being scruti
nized and admired by every mem
ber of the company will probably be
placed on view to the public.
Almut a quarter past I o'clock
this afternoon a lire alarm was
sounded, bringing the whole town
out again in terror of another
scorching. The lire was in a dwell
ing house on the south side of the
Government yard, near the Survey
Building. It was occupied by Mr.
Knmiki, janitor of the Government
building, and was alire in a bed
room on the south side. The two
young children were playing in the
room, when their mother heard them
calling out, "There's fire in the
room." Flames were found in pos
session of a corner, from the top of
a bureau upward, and had reached
to tho ceiling. Mr. Hart, Road Su
pervisor, and Mr. Jas. Collins,
keeper of tho Government stables,
put out all the visible fire with
buckets, after which a garden hose
was turned on. Meantime Pacific
Hose Co. and Engine Co. No. 1
were hastening to the spot, reaching
there in the order given, but the
former not having its hydrant hose
allowed the other to get first water
on the building. There being a
faint symptom of smoke coming
through the roof, a hole was cut in
it and the attic thoroughly drenched.
Matches strewed about the floor of
the room left little doubt that the
children playing with them had
caused the lire. British marines
from the Heroine and Satellite were
numerously mingled with the crowd,
doubtless ready for any service.
One of them remarked to our re
porter, "This is a pretty lively
town." All the furniture was taken
out of the house by the crowd.
Chief Engineer Nott was promptly
on hand to diiect operations. There
was a good deal of animadversion
passed upon the Minister of Interior
by spectators, because he was not
on hand with a hatchet to cut the
hole in the roof, or to authorize
blowing up the Survey building and
Aliiolani Hale, if necessary, to save
the town !
THE LATE MRS. KAPENA'S FUNERAL.
A large concourse assembled at
St. Andrew's Cathedral yesterdry

by the Bishop of Honolulu and Kcv.
Alex. Mackintosh, the band playing
the "Dead March in Saul." The

by the Bishop of Honolulu assisted
by the Itev. Alex. Mackintosh. On
