banking house of Mathieson & Co.,
CEO. W. DE LONG POST, C. A. R., OF
HONOLULU, IN SAN FRANCISCO.
Mr. R. W. Laine returned by the
steamer Australia this morning, and
speaks in raptures of the treatment
accorded to him by the people at
the Coast, and not only to him, as
the reprcsenlatiTe of Geo. XV. I)e
Long Post, but to all the G. A. R.
boys, their families, "cousins and
their mints." Everything that will
ing hands and oversowing hearts
could do was done, and the 20th
National Encampment of the G. A.
R. will long be remembered as the
best thing on earth! The gavel sent
by the Post hero to the commander-in-chief,
was presented to him by
Department Commander W. R.
Smedburg in his happiest manner,
and accepted by Comrade Burdett
in a few well chosen remarks, in
which he complimented Hawaii nci.
The Hawaiian flag which Comman
der Laine took with him was carried
in the grand procession by Comrade
W. E. Smith, and was accorded the
post of honor with Lincoln Post, and
at a meeting subsequently was don
ated to Lincoln Post by Commander
Laine, from Geo. W. De Long Post,
and in accepting it the commander
paid a high compliment to the Post
and the comrades of the "advanced
picket guard of the G. A. U.." and
it was accorded the post of honor in
the hall. This wus the (list time the
flag of Hawaii was seen in the streets
of San Francisco, and was received
with cheers all along the line.
THE BASEBALL MATCH.
LAST OF THE SEASON"
The last baseball match of the
Honolulu League for the season of
188G was played on Saturday after
noon. There wos a goodly assem
blage of spectators, and Mr. Hart
was on hand, as usual, with ice
cream and cooling drinks. A
miserable match was played. It
was twice interrupted by brisk
Bhowers, and there was a lackadaisi
cal air about the play of the losing
club, which threw a haze of gloom
over the diamond. The Benedict
received as bad a beating as the
Hawaii on the previous Saturday.
Honolulu had its old team, with one
or two exceptions, Morton, of tho
Hawaii, playing instead of Mark
ham, off on his honej'moon. The
teams were: Honolulu Wode
house, Oat, Whitney, Moore, Thurs
ton, Low, Castle, Parker and Mor
ton ; Benedict Clias. Wilder, Irish
man, J. Winter, Chan. Wilder,
Lyons, F. Winter, Booth, Spencer
and Wall. The match collapsed
with the sixth inning, when Hono
lulu, which was not whitewashed at
all, had 18 runs; and the Benedict,
whitewashed four times, had 1.
Honolulu went first to bat, and
Wodehouse, Oat, Moore, with a
three-base hit, and Thurston scored.
In tho second inning, Morton,
Wodehouse and Whitney scored ;
third, Castle ; fourth, Wodohouse,
Oat, Moore with a two-base hit, ami
Thurston; fifth, Wodehouse and
Oat; sixth, Thurston, Castle,
Parker and Morton.
For tho Benedict, J. Winter mado
the first run, in the fourth inning;
and Spencer, Chas. Wilder and
Lisliman scored in tin: fifth, r .
Winter took Willi's place as pitcher
in the fifth inning, somewhat to the
embarrassment of the Honolulus be
fore they caught on to his style ;
hut whatever advantage was gained
by this swapping of horses in the
stream was lost in the new pitcher's
erroneous throwing to bases. The
Honolulus should not have scored
so heavily, hud tho fielding of their
opponents been at all prompt and
Mr. Henry Kala umpired the
game very judiciously, and Mr.
Gardner Wilder kept the score.

season shows the number of games

A TRIP TO HILO, AND THE SUNDAY
Reader, do you know what it
means to go with a huge crowd of
natives to the other islands? It
mentis lots of trouble to take all
their baggage and food, satchels and
trunks, poi and fish, blankets and
boxes for finery, etc., etc.
Well, everything has its end, so
after a little delay, oil got on board,
nnd off we went. Hut, alas I the
good steamer Klniiu stopped again.
What is the matter now? Well, the
matter is this; one of our consuls,
the representative of n mighty na
tion, missed the time, and the
steamer was off the wharf before
the good consul of this great nation
knew it, nnd of course us he had to
get on shore, or there might be
another complication of a political
nature, thu mighty consul of the
great nation must be got on shore.
So after a little tossing to and fro,
shouting and growling, the good
consul of the great nation succeeded,
and off we are once more.
Now, if wo had been in old Greece,
everybody would have been rather
scared, the oracle would have been
summoned, and the gods asked if
we could proceed on our voyage
after such a serious break. But us
we are in Hawaii nei we did not con
sult the kahunas, and went on.
The shore battery pealed out the
royal salute for Princess Lilluoka
lani from the mighty cannons, and
wo felt big, very. Mind you, it is
no small item to be saluted as we go
to tho other islands: we felt very
Soon Neptune seriously demanded
his offering, as the usual custom is,
and of course he got it perhaps
more than he bargained for. But
it was no uc to fight hiin, and all,
more or less, answered his call.
The weather was beautiful. Not
withstanding we preferred to lie
down. The dinner bell had no
charm for us, and we dozed along
till we reached Lahaina. There we
took our night cap a cup of coffee
or tea and went on. Soon reached
Maalaea, and then Makcna. Get
ting tired as the time advonced, nt
nearly 1 o'clock in the morning we
all turned in, partly to avoid tho
dangers of the Alenuiliaha and
partly to get a sleep.
At daylight we reached Mahu
kona, took a hearty breakfast, and
viewed the busy place. Next to
Honolulu, Mahukona, thanks to Mr.
S. G. Wilder's energ', is the live
liest place on all the islands. The
railroad adds greatly to the scene.
Here we took about 100 Sunday
school children aboard, and after a
few hours' stay started for Kawai
hae. Kawaihae is a desolate looking
country. Still there is good fish to
be got there. The loyal natives
brought lots of food, fish, pork,
sugar cane, etc., as offerings to the
Piincess. Here we took aboard
more Sunday school people, and off
we went. Passed Mahukona again,
saluted by steam whistles.
Now we came to pass the most
beautiful scenerv on the Hawaiian
Islands ; I mean the coasts of Ko
hala, Hamakua, and Ililo. It is be
witching. The afternoon was lovely,
which added to the indescribable
beauty of the natural objects within
the range of vision. We took it all
in. The mighty waterfall, the small
rivulet, the immense valleys of
Wniinanu and Waipio, the rolling
plains of Xakuihaele and Honokaa,
sugar cane and sugar mills, little
hamlets and stately residences, and
above all towering the grand moun
tain of Maiiuakea, pouring its con
densed II Li i cl down the val-s and
plains, making everything look green
The waterfalls are numerous. We
counted 27 on this coast. And most
of that beautiful water runs to waste
jn the great sea, where there is al
ready so much. Hardly use for any
more. But such is nature. What
a wholesome benefit would this water
be in Kona, Kau, and Puna, where
it is at present very dry. But as
there is no visible means to amend
nature, we have to let it run its
The coast is very rough and land
ings very dangerous. Human skill
has invented all kinds of contrivances
to make landing as good ns it is
under the circumstances. In gen
eral thoy use the swinging crane,
with a box attached. At Paauhau
several ladies came off with' appar
Wo reached Laupahoehoe about o'
o'clock in the afternoon. A grand
sight. Here they utilize the water
as a cane-carrier. Tho cane is grown
on n Hat above, and the mill is be
low at the water's edge. Numerous
Humes in all directions bring the
cane down. The Humes of dark
color against tho steep bluffs look
like filigree work from the steamer's
Wo aro off again. This time
direct for Ililo. The daylight fades
away. On our right wo can see the
dark cliffs, occasionally broken by
the lights of the plantations. To
our left is tho vast Pacific ocean.
The moon, almost full, sheds her
beautiful light over all, and every
body feels delighted with tho pros
pect of being soon on shoro.
Hllo, as usual, greeted tho royal
vibitor with a Hinurt shower of rain,
just enough to mnko it unpleasant.
All Hllo was on the wharf to receive
the Princess. A salute of 21 guns
was fired, fireworks ami hurrahs
filled the air. Everybody soon
reached their quarters, and went
merrily to bed.
Next morning was beautiful.
Numerous parties ou horseback
. ..... , . .., i
oomo to attend the Sunday school
festival. Hllo was gay. Tho Band
struck up at the residence of Her
Royal Highness, and the loyal peo
ple paid their respects. In the
evening the Band played at the
court house yard, to the delight of
everybody. An immense crowd was
The following day active prepara
tions were continued for the ap
proaching festival. Hllo people had
collected a geneious sum of money
to feed all the visitors and the Sun
day school people. Mr. Nawahi,
Mr. Rrowu, and others, had made
arrangements to satisfy everybody,
and there was no hitch.
Thursday was rather showery.
Band playing, and in the evening a
grand conceit at the llaill church,
for the benefit of the Sundnj' School
Association. A crowded house, and
a good sum realized. The pro
gramme was good ; not too long ;
one hour and n half about. The
hulics-in-wniting of Her Royal High
ness added materially to the concert
by singing several beautiful duets.
The Band also assisted. The Ililo
choir made good hits.
Fridny, as usual. Invitations
wcie out from Mr. Scott and his
charming lady for a reception to
Her Royal Highness in the evening.
Mr. Scott is thu successful manager
of Wainaku plantation. He has just
built a new residence, beautifully
located ou a slope. Wainaku is
about two miles from Ililo. The
road is good, though hilly. As
there were but few expresses, some
had to go on plantation mule teams.
My dear reader, if you never went
on a mule team, you don't know
what fun it is. As theie arc no
springs, you get the full benefit of
every stone in the road. Well, all
went merrily, although the rain
marred the pleasure somewhat.
Everybody felt jolly, particularly
the young folks, after a nice dance
as a finale.
Saturday came. This was "the
day we celebrate." From early
morning groups of people moved
towards llaill church, to get a good
seat. The church was tastefully
decorated. The building is large
and cool, roomy and has good
acoustic properties. There were
present about 1,000 people inside,
and perhaps from 200 to U00 out
side. All good-natured and ordeily.
The meeting was called to order,
and the first general hymn sung,
accompanied by the Band. A good
effect. Rev. Mr. Forbes, of Hono

The Rev. Mr. Forbes stood up
and made an appropriate speech, in
which he said that it was very hard,
where there were so many good
schools, and none positively bad, to
select tlie best. The committee had
had considerable difficulty in decid
ing, particularly between Kahei and
Kalapaua, but had concluded to
award the prize to tho latter.
Now came the hurrah. Kalapaua
felt proud. The teacher mounted
the platform' and thanked the Prin
cess and the committee, and the
triumphant school gave another
splendid chorus. The audience rose
and sang Hawaii Pouoi, and then
went home feeling happy.
It was now nearly (5 o'clock,

short intermission for lunch, lhe

get ready. The good steamer Ki
nau arrived in the morning early.
All Ililo was sorrv that the cood

disadvantage of commonly called rain, not to the de
day, the people 1,'ght of the motley crowd. All got
wet before reaching the steamer.
Well, goodbye, Ililo!
The homeward trip was delight
ful. Fine weather. Everybody
look once more to tho beauties of
the coasts of Ililo, Hamakun and
Kohala. Stopped as usual at Ka
waihae and Mahukona. Rather
long, but it had to he endured. At
last, after wailing at Mahukona
only nine hours, we steamed off for
Makcna, then Maalaea and Lahainu,
and arrived early on Saturday morn
ing in Honolulu. When we came
near, the cannons peeled out their
royal salute. A large concourse of
people was awaiting on the wharf.
His Majesty the King wns there,
and received his sister, Princess
Liliuokalani, very cordially.
Everybody was pleased to bo
home again. And so ended the trip
to Ililo, and the Sunday School Con
II. R. II. Liliuokalani is the most
charming lady on the islands. Al
ways pleasant, and ready to please
everybody. Never haughty, yet, al
Ililo fed about 100 people gratis
for a whole week. Everybody got
his tea or coffee every morning and
The Sunday School people were
well and tastily dressed.
The Band behaved well better
than last time. No gin around.
The singers from the leeward side
sang better that those from tho
Ililo would like to sell.somc rain to
Puna and Kau.
Roads occasionally interfere with
religion. More people would havo
come, but you know the roads.
One of the Honolulu boys stole a
gold watch, made a present of it to
his lady-love for a sweet kiss, and
now wears a tti-colored suit for tlie
remainder of the year. Lesson :
Don't kiss, but if you do, do it
Ililo, Hamakua, and Kohalu
coasts arc nowhere surpassed.
A fine table and good things on it
, aboard of the steamer Kinau.
It rains only once n day in Ililo,
i but sometimes two and three times.
The most astonishing fact is, that
so many Hawaiians are singers, and
take interest in it. Rut after all,
glad 'to get home.
