A conscientious gentle nann told

fish, which are easily caught, lie
further said that a kind of largo
black fish, which abound near. the
island, -are caught by the hundreds
and in a very remarkable way.
Ono of the fish being hooked, it
is drawn iapidly ashore, followed
by a school of tho same class. They
land with such force that they throw
themselves high on the beach, and
are then picked up. The people on
the Ibland, continued the gentleman,
do not cure the fish for market, and
if some enterprising company, would
secure the right of fishing there,
they could make a fortune.

leaving a balance in hand of 815,
disposed of as follows: S5G5 to the
sick fund and 250 placed in 'the
Postal Savings Bank for the benefit
of China Engine Co. No. a.
The Jubilee Committee were not
ready with their report, and asked
for an extension of time, which was
The disposal of the 500 dona
tion fiom the Inter-Island Steam
Navigation Company came up for
consideration. The recommendation
of the Chief Engineer, made atfthe
last meeting that 100 each be
given to Engine Companies Nos. 1,
2, and 4, 50 each to No. 5, Pacific
Hose, and Hook and Ladder Com
panies, and 50 for incidentals was
placed before the meeting as a
regular motion, ft having been
moved and seconded.
To this Mr. M. D. Monsarrat
moved nn amendment, which Mr, B.
Ordenstein seconded,' as follows:
' Whereas, A proposition was made
at the last meeting of the Board to
apply to the use of several fire com
panies, the 6tim of $500 donated by
the Inter-Island Steam Navigation
Company, and whereas, such action
if adopted would be detrimental to
tho good name of this Department,
In that it is illegal and contrary to
Art. 15 of the Constitution; there
fore bo it resolved, that in order to
iclicve Engine Companies No. 1 and
No. No, 4, from the expenditures
made by thoin in anticipation of
their receiving 8100 each for their
services rendered in pumping water
out of the W. G. Hall; tho sum of
200 be ordered paid to said com
panies, share .awl shore alike, out of
the income derived fiom the invested
fund of the Department, and bo jt
further resolved, that the above
donation of 500 ho paid into the
Sick Fund of the Depaitment.
A lively but good-natured discus
sion followed, jitter which a division
was called, resulting in the rejection
of the amendment and tho adoption
of the original motion.
A sum of 850 was voted to John
Pease, a member of one of tho
companies, out of the sick fund.
ELEOTRIC LIGHT FOR MARINE
EiatfoR Buli.ktin: In your ills
cussiou of this subject 1 think you
make too much of tho alleged failure
of the arc-light at Dungcncss, and
you aio certainly quite astray as to
sen-going vessels not entering Syd
ney hntbor by night. I doubt if n
night passes on which several ves
sels do not enter Sydney bonds and
go right up to tho wharves. The
lights are especially arranged as
guides as welt as beacons, the sail
ing directions are ea9y and the feat
of entering or leaving tho harbor at
night in ordinary weather one of the
simplest lor either steamer or sail
ing vessel. As to tho Dungencss
light, it is the only case in which
electric lighting lias been abandoned
after being delinitcy adopted for any
lighthouse on the British or French
coasts. Sir James N. Douglas in an
address delivered in August lost
before the British Association says
of it: "The early experience with
tho elecliic light at Dungencss was
far from encouraging. Frequent
extinctions of tho light occurred
fiom various causes connected with
the machinery and apparatus and
the oil light had at such times to be
substituted. As no advantage can
counterbalance- the want of certainty
for the guidance of the mariner, no
further step' in the development of
electric light was taken by the Tri
nity House until the latter part of
18GG when favorable reports were
received from theFrench light-house
authorities." From this it is clear
that the complaints of mariners (to
which he also alludes) "of the daz
zling effect on the eyes when navi
gating as they are there frequent
required to do clone, in shore," were
not the sole reasons for the return
to the use of oil lights at Dunge
ncss ; and as no w ise navigator de
sires and none can ever be l 'required' '
to keep "close in-shore" near Bar
ber's Point, I think your argument
against the use of electiic light
there is not quite sound. There
may however be other good reasons
A committee of the corporation
which in England has charge of the
Light-houses, aided by members of
the Scotch and Irish Light-house
Boards and several scientific men of
other nationalities has during Hie
past two years been investigating
the value of the different systems of
illumination "both as regards
efficiency and .economy" and has
quite recently made a report. After
an elaborate series of observations
and experiments the conclusions
these gentlemen have arrived at are
thus summed up by themselves:
"For ordinary necessities of light
house illumination, mineral oil is the
most suitable and economical illunai
nant, and that for salientheadlands,
important landfalls, and places
where a very powerful light is.rc
quired, electricity offers tho great
est advantages." Evidently if con
sulted they would not recommend
the use of electric lighting for Ho
noluha Harbor and considering the
facility with which our local
steamers and coasters under sail
enter and leave the harbor at night,
it is ditllcult to understand why
anyone thought it was required.
