THE SAILORS' HOME.
A special meeting of the Board of
Trustees of the Sailors' Home So
ciety was" held at the Home to-day
at 10 a. 5i., thirteen trustees being
present, and Hot). Ghas. R. Bishop
in the chair.
Tho Treasurer made a verbal
statement of tho financial status of
the Society, showing the amount of
S 107.72 in his hands.
The President stated the object
of this meeting to bo the considera
tion of the expressed public opinion
that the present building be ic
moved, on account of tho risk of fire
caused by so high a building con
structed of inflammable material
and centrally situated.
The Trustees lecognized the ne
cessity of such action as called for
by the fact that Government and
private propeity would bo-unduly
exposed to danger as long as the
present Satlois' Home building le-
mained in its place. At tho same
time the Trustees expressed the
hope that arrangements might be
made in concurrence with tho Gov
ernment by which a Sailors' Home
would continue to exist in a modi
fled form and adapted to tho changed
condition of things in general.
A comrnitteo was therefore ap
pointed with instructions to consult
with His Excellency the Minister of
Interior and ascertain what the Gov
ernment would be disposed to do in
behalf of the Sailors' Homo Society,
provided the latter should give up
its charter and transfer its propel ty
to the Government; such committee
to report at an early meeting of tho
Society, when further action will bo
taken. Tho following gentlemen
form the committee: Hon. C. R.
Bishop, Chairman; Hon. S. M.
Damon, Hon. A. S. Cleghorn, Rev.
E. 0. Oggel, Mr. F. A. Schaefer.

worth, Mr. Starkey, Miss Hathaway,
Mr. Davies, and (with violin obli
gato) by Miss Bernice Parke, Mrs.
Hanford and Mr. Yarndley. Piano
accompaniments were given by Mrs.
Walker, Mis. Handford, Miss
Hessic Dickson, Mr. Myron Jones
and Misses Yon Holt. An able
thrce-mlnuto address, the keynote
of which wns "homeward bound,"
was delivered by General Secretary
Fuller. Tho iirst number was en
thusiastically encored, but tho man
ager, Mr. Davies, informed the
audience that owing to the
length of the programme, it would
be impossible to lespond to recalls.
livery subsequent number was
greeted with loud protracted cheeis
and applause. Part second of the
programme consisted of songs and
recitations by the men of the He
roine and Satellite, alternately. Of
the Heroine, Color Sergeant Jones
recrted "On the Prah," an incident
of tho Zulu War; J. J. Jones, cap
tain of the maintop, sung "For
the Land of -the free," and "Eva in
Heaven;" BenJ. Delves sang "Hur
rah for the Navy" and "Volatile;"
Elliott, boatswain's mate, recited
"Tho Quaker," "Sunday at sea,"
and sang "The Irishman's Choice
of hanging." Of the Satellite, Chas.
Bosworthick, gunner's male, sang
"The Tar's farewell," and "the
naughty littlo girls." T. Dohcrty,
loyal marine, recited "Marine Deco
ration." Gray, engine room artificer,
sang with piano accompaniment by
Miss Walker, "Come cheer up my
lads" and "The Four Jolly Smiths."
A quartet, "Silver moonlight winds
are blowing" followed, and was well
rendered. The sailors performed
therr parts in splendid style, some
of them receiving two encoics. The
songs weie chorused by their ship
mates, to tho immense delight es
pecially of the juveniles in the audi
ence, so that the spectators forgot
at times that they wcro not on board
an eight thousand ton ironclad.
Every part was greeted with tho
most enthusiastic cheers and ap
plause throughout, Elliott bringing
tiro enthusiasm of the audience to a
clrmax. Captains Blackburne and
Alington thanked the ' ladles and
gentlemen present for their very
cordial reception and entertainment,
Captain Alington having led in
tlrrcc rousing cheeis for their Hono
lulu friends, which were given with
a vim becoming the occasion, called
for "God Save the Queen," sung by
the sailors, and closed tho perform
ance by pionouncing an emphatic
aloha. Ice cream and cake were
then served, and the assembly dis
persed. April 28th.
