A speech delivered before the
sub-commlttco on "Ways and Means,
at Washington, in opposition to the
reciprocity treaty, contains the fol
lowing statement: "Before this re
ciprocity treaty was granted it was a
novelty, and almost a wonder, to
find a Hawaiian begging. To-day
you can count them on the streets."
It was indeed a novelty to find a
Hawaiian begging before the treaty,
and has been and continues to be as
great n novelty since the treaty. To
a man at 'Washington it may be an
easy thing to count in imagination
scores of beggars in the streets of
Honolulu, but to those who walk
those streets daily beggars arc in
visible. Because why? Because
thoy arc not there.
A PLEASANT PARTY.
The Japanese Consulate was the
scene last night of one of the most
pleasant if not the most so and
agreeable gatherings ever held in
this city. Invitations had been
issued by Mr. and Mrs. Taro Ando,
the Japanese Commissioner and
wife, to a limited number of our
best people, who began to fill the
hospitablo mansion ' at about 8
o'clock. The driveway and house
were illuminated in a very hand
somo manner, with a profusion of
Japanese lanterns; the interior of
the house was tastefully decorated
with evergreens, Uowcrs, etc. ; the
hostess and host were ably assisted
by the Misses Austin, who kindly
introduced the guests. After an
hour or two of social chat, refresh
ments were bountifully served, and
about 11 i'. si. the guests departed,
all agreeing that it was a very en
joyable party. Among those pre
sent were: II. R. II. Princess Li

On Wednesday last a party of ex
perts Tisited the boat shop of Mr.
J. A. Dower, and were present at
the trial of his patent machine for
shaping and bending timbers for
boats and small vessels. There
wero present Captain Bradley, of
the Royal Navy, Captain Mist, U.
N., Colonel Jona. Austin, and Mr.
E. P. Adams, who has bought an
interest in the patent and will intro
duce it into the United States. This
machine has already been fully
described in the papers and it is not,
therefore, necessary to repeat the
detailed descrintion now. Suillco it
to say that the principal points arc,
a flexible steel bar which, by means
of a handsorew gear, is brought into
the desired shape, and the timber,
after being steamed as usual, is
forced against it by clamps, and the
proper shape is obtained in the
shortest possible space of time.
On this occasion it was done and
ready for the keel in live minutes'
time by the watch. The timber is
kept in shape by a cross piece nailed
to it, is then released from the
machine nnd is ready at once to be
placed in its proper position in the
boat or yacht. The timber being
shaped in one continuous piece,
from gunwnlo to gunwale, gives tho
boat a strength and elasticity which
cannot be acquired under the old
method. The largest piece which
thus far has been shaped by tho
"Dower" machine- is Ux 3, on a
small machine. Many boats are in
successful use among these Islands,
made upon this principle, nnd are
well liked. Tho two following let
.Vcrs give tho opinion of practical,
unprejudiced men as to tho merits
of this patent:
Pacific Navigation Company,
K Honolulu, April 8. 1880.
K. 1'. Auamh, Esq.,
Agent for Dower's Patent Heading
Dear Sir: In answer to your request
concerning tho meiit of the above
machine, I would say, that our com
pany have usetl a number of Mr. Dower's
Jjoats built with this machiuu and find
ihem superior In every respect to those
hTiilt In tho ordinary way, especially on
account of tholr lightness, strength,
elasticity and durability. The boats
used on these islands are subject to the
.ost unusual strain and usage tit our
rough landings, and wc Unci that the
Dower patent built boats are superior
to all others used on this const and re
quite the least repairing.
You m truly.
A. F. Cookk.
President and Manager of Pacific
Honolulu, April 8, 1880.
.1. A. Dowr.n, Bsq.,
Dear Sir: Let me say In answer to
your enquiry, that the Pepeckeo planta
tion has two of your surf Boats In use
for loading sugars at our landing. These
boats weie built under your pntent
pioeossfor hemline; and shaping tltn
Oil's, und I am pleased to say thttt they
are giving poifcct satisfaction. They
nrt lighter than the ordinary surf bout,
and therefore the more easily handled.
They are also, from tho formation of
the timbers in one continuous piece
without break nt the floor, much ntoto
elnitle than other boats, and. as well as
I can jmljio thus far, are more durable.

Capl. Mist lias purchased n half
interest in this patent for Great
Britain, and active measures will
shortly be taken for its introduction
there. April nth.

NEWS FROMJHE VOLCANO.
SYMl'TOJIS OK ltKTUIIXIXU ACTIVITY.
A letter from Mr. J. M. Lee,
keeper of tho Halfway House, Kan,
dated April M, gives tho following
account of the stnto of tho Volcano
when he visited it on two recent
"I suppose people in Honolulu
nre anxious to hear news about tho
Volcano, nnd as I just enmo'down
from there last night I can give you
tho very latest information regard
ing that matter. I was there last
Thursday, and from tho bluffs I
observed quite a heavy sraoko pour
ing out from tho crater of Hnlc
maumati. This smoke had com
menced four days previous and had
been steadily increasing alt the
time, so the people up there ex
pected the fire to break out every
minute. They have been disap
pointed so far, but there is no doubt
that in a few days the flro too will
" I took another trip yesterday
and went right down to tho crntcr,
hoping to sec somo sparks of Arc at
the bottom; but the old Madame
was not ready yet with her toilet.
I suppose she don't like to show
herself till she can dazzle her
wooers in her former splendor.
The smoke was much denser and
heavier now than last time I was
up ; it rolled out like clouds from a
big chimney. Sometimes it was
very calm and only a faint blue
smoko was to be seen, but that only
lasted a few seconds, nnd then
again with many doubled force it
was pulling away, filling up the
whole crater, so wc could hardly see
anything around us but smoke. It
must be very active underneath,
and you can plainly sec that power
ful forces are working, and working
to break through. Right on the
edge of the holo where the smoke
comes up it lias formed a sulphur
bed, which iias been observed only
thu last two days, and a little dis
tance townrds west there is a whole
system of steam, forming a long
line ; this is above the crater itself,
commencing close to the edge. The
new lake is quiet, and all the power
seems to be concentrated in the
crater of Halemaumau."
A letter from Mr. J. II. Mnby, of
Wilder S. S. Co.'s Volcano House,
dated April 12, says the side from
which steam lias been lately rising,
now emits dense volumes of daik
blue smoke. Tho whole chasm
around Halemaumau has become
fearfully hot within the last few
days. Tho place tho smoke princi
pally issues from seems to be a cone
and is forming sulphur very fast.
The natives says the present indica
tions arc very favorable for a sudden
and mighty fire, and expect to see
Kilauea in its former activity before
long. In speaking of the Volcano,
Mr. Geo. Beckley says that the
smoke ascending from the crater
can be plainly seen at Hilo. April

Tho relief committee is now dis
pensing about 400 meals per day, at
the Immigration depot, to sufferers
by tho late fire. Of this number,
some 370 arc to Chinese, nnd the
remainder to natives. About 50
persons arc lodging at the depot.
Mr. Austin is taking particular
pains to prevent imposition, nnd no
relief is given except to those giving
references. Mr. F. AV. Damon is
rendering valuable assistance, his

THE MARAROA-ARRIVAL AND DEPAR
TURE. The arrival and departure of the
Mararoa, Saturday evening, wns an
occasion of more than usual interest.
Among the nrrivnls were the long
looked for Campobello troupe, to
gether witli scvernl persons of note,
from the leading cities of tho United
States and Canada. The steamer
had n large list of passengers in
transit. During tho nine hours she
lay at the dock, tho passengers mndo
the best of their short visit, taking
in tiie city, of which tliero is happily
enough left in good presentable con
dition to occupy the attention of
travellers for moic than one after
noon. Among those who spent the
evening on shoru, was Dr. Kirkwood,
of Pictou, N. S., Canada. The doc
tor and several of the residents of
the city were mutually astonished
and gratified with the opportunity of
renewing home acquaintance, on the
coral strand, six thousand miles
away from tho "Land of tho May
flower." Mr. II. G. Parker, Pro
fessor of English Literature, Trinity
College, Toronto, and correspondent
of the Toronto Mail, stops off for
next steamer. Mr. Fnikerwill do
tho city in tho meantime, and Hono
lulu may expect a first-class write
up in the "qttee'n city" of the Cana
dians. Conspicuous among the
departures from our shores was
Capt. AV. F. O'Connor, formerly of
the Queen's Own. A detachment
of that body which has been raised
by Capt. O'Connor's energetic in
structions to a very high point of
elllcicucy, inarched down to the
wharf, drew up in line in front of
the captain, when Lieutenants
Kancakua and Keoln stepped for
ward and presented their former
commander and instructor with a
splendid enne of cocoanut wood, with
gold mounting, inscribed, "Pre
sented to Capt. AV. F. O'Connor, by
the Queen's Own Volunteers, II. I.,
April, 188G." Capt. O'Connor ac
knowledged the presentation in
suitable terms, and the company,
giving liiin three rousing cheers,
withdrew. A largo number of peo
ple were at the dock to give their
alohas to departing friends. Mr.
AVm. Noble, whoso five weeks' visit
made a huge addition to Ins list of
friends, received many good wishes
for a pleasant voyage, a successful '
Australian campaign and a safe re
turn. The gcninlT. E. AVall,of Yosc
mito skating rink fame, received
many hearty handshakings from his
numerous friends. At about half
past twelve, the whistle of tho
steamer gave the first screech, warn
ing visitor's tlint it was time to get
away home. The second and third
