The Board of Health held a meet
ing this morning to consider the
case of the 252 Chinamen quaran
tined outside the reef on the Kaimi
loa, and it was decided that the ves
sel is too small to accommodate that
numbor of Chinamen ; that they bo
landed at the quarantine grounds,
and there provided for ; that they
be brought ashore, one boat load at
a time, and fumigated ; and that tho
vessel, after being relieved of its
freight be also -disinfected. The
landing is being done this afternoon.
Thus the retracing of a wrong
step has been commendably prompt.
SI, 700 LOST.
Mr. A. Hodcrick, who resides at
Kalilii, while returning home from
Honolulu this morning lost a bank
deposit receipt- for 1,300 and an
order for $400. The deposit receipt
is from-the bank of Messrs. Bishop
& Co., in favor of Antono Roderick.
The lost paper was in the loser's
coat pocket. Koderiek took off his
coat and put it in his wagon. Tho
coat fell out of" the wagon unobserv
ed, and it vivas not until Eodorick
readied homo, or nearly so, that he
missed his coat. Ho returned in
search of it, and found it in posses
sion of a native, who had picked it
up. But fho deposit receipt and
order wore gone, a'nd the native de
clared that he knew nothing of
them. Payment has been stopped,
and the owner offers a reward of
$50 for thoir return to him.

The editor of tho Bulletin leaves"

home and do nothing most of last
week. His head, ho says, is out of

Tt is to be hoped that these two
played-out, liead-sick editors will
fight out their differences between
themselves on board ship or over on
Kauai, that they will return in a
healthier and stronger condition of

have indicated for some time past,
or that they will prolong their ab

The llilo Boarding School has
issued a circular "to the friends of
the Hawaiian people," a copy of
which has reached the Bulletin
office. The imprint shows that the
ciicular was printed at the Boarding
School. The circular conveys the
information that the Hilo Boarding
School is an industrial institution
for Hawaiian boys, that the depart
ments of carpentry and printing
are now in operation, and that the
moderate sum. of twenty-five dollars
per annum is charged for board and.
tuition. Tho following is quoted :
"Hilo Boarding School has now
in operation, besides the regular
scholastic department, departments
of Carpentry and Piinting, wherein
it is the intention that every boy
who completes a course in the school
shall gain tho rudiments of a trade
by which ho can earn anhones't live
lihood, and at the same time be a
useful member of society. A large
percentage of the carpenters and a
full half of tho printers of the
Islands, according to the last census,
are Ilawaiians. This shows that in
these two departments, at least, Hilo
Boarding School is acting in accord
ance, with tho dictum of tho Spartan
In view of these facts, docs not the

MR.JOHN ENA ON THE KAIMILOA.
Going into the office of tho Inter
Island Steam Navigation Co. yester
day afternoon, to ascertain, if possi
ble, what the company propose do
ing with tlio Kaimiloa, the repre
sentative of tho Bulletin met Mr.
John Ena, secretary of the I. I. S.
Mr. Ena, with a sido wink to an
employee in tho office, said that if
the company would not take tho
vessel off his- hands ho would con
vert her into a pleasure yacht, and
take his wife and family on an ex
cursion to Tahiti, or ho would let
her out as a quarantine vessel at
$35 a day.
Just then the president of the
company, Mr. T. R. Foster, came
in, and Mr. Ena, excusing himself
went into tho privalo olllae of the
president to consult him on tho Ka
imiloa. Returning to tho reporter, Mr,
Ena said that they (the company)
will run the Kaimiloa between Sa
moa and this port, if tho Legislature
will grant them a subsidy. We,
continued Mr. Ena, can buy cattle
here at $22 n head. Allowing for
height to Samoa and tho feeding of
the cattle a handsomo profit can
even then bo made by selling tho
meat at 20 and 25 cents a pound.
Mr. Enn wore a serious face while
he was telling the above yarn, but
the clerks in tho office found
it difficult to keep from laughing
The reporter having received the
desired information, or rather all
that ho was likely to get, left the
office, but not without taking a peep
at tho president in his oillee and
making a pencil sketch of the sar
donic smile he wore.

A MATRIMONIAL BUREAU.
She was reclining in her fnther's

but graceful attitude, and her list
less gaze spoke volumes of doimant
A young man in tho prime of llfo,
buoyant! in spirit and devoutly fond
of the gentle sex, sauntered by.
As If by magic the young lady
looked up. The gentleman turned
and gazed at her. They were
strangers to each other. Their eyes
met and looked straight at each
other for a moment. Then the
young lady looked down and her
checks became tinted with a deli
cate pink line. The gentleman
still gazed, almost rudely. It
was beyond doubt a case of love
at first sight.
A gray-headed man with a pen
stuck behind ills ear had quietly
taken in the lliilation from an unob
served corner. When the father of
the young laily had boarded his car
riage and was being driven to his
dwelling on the plains, and the
young man had gone his way, the
man-with-thc-pcii came out from his
hiding place. Ho slapped his leg,
exclaiming, I've struck it. Pull its
teeth out, cried a small boy fiom
across tho street, but the old man
did not hear him.
A ponnj for your thoughts, Mr.
V said a reporter to the venerable
gentleman, who was now seated in
hig olllce, lost in a brown study.
A penny! Not by a jug lull.
There's millions in it, replied Mr.
Like soothing syrup trickling
down the gullet of a squalling brat,
iiko a lighting flash, so did Mr. V 's
face change, when he iccognizcd
the reporter. Tho scowl ho had
assumed so as to appear deep, was
substituted by a broad smile. "I'm
going "to open a matiimouial bu
reau," he said, in confidential
whisper. I just saw something that
gave me the idea. There are scores
of young ladies here who are willing
to make some young man happy and
thcie aic as many young men who
arc anxious lo be made happy. This
bureau will, of course, be strictly
confidential. For $2.50 any young
lady can register her name in a
book in my office, and opposite her
name the cognomen of the gen
tleman she would like to marry.
Gentlemen can icgistcr for $J. each.
When a gentleman and a lady agree
in their choice, they will be quietly
notified of the fact, inlioduecd to
each other and left to set the day!

I'll let you register your name
free of charge if jou'll give me a

The walnut is indigenous to Upper
Asia, and in the mountainous re
gions of Persia is found growing
wild. It was knonfi to the Romans
as Jiujlam Jteyia or Royal Tree of
Jupiter. It was introduced into
Itah at the beginning of the Chiist
ian ora, and gradually spiead over
Western Europe. It was introduced
into England many centuries ago
from Fiance, which countiy was
then called Gaul, and bomo authori
ties say tho word "walnut" is a cor
ruption of "Gtiuhiut." (Webster
gives tho derivation, however, from
an Anglo-Saxon w oul, "weal-lmut,"
from "wealh," a foreigner, a stran
ger, and "hunt," a nut.) In Europe
it is called bhuply "walnut, "and the
name English walnut, used in this
country, was bcbtowed by tho colo
nists of Viigiiiia to distinguish it
fiom tho uativo American black wal
nut. The tree seems to llouiibh ex
ceedingly well in California. It
thrives in rich and poor laud, on
moumtaiuand in valley, in rock and
barren soil wliero hardly anything
else can bo grown. But in deep
soil, with a moist bottom, tho Eng
lish walnut grows luxuriantly and
yields large crops at a comparatively
young age. American Grocer.

HOW A TOUNO AMERICAN 'NAVAL
OFIIOER 'WEDDED A HONOLULU
The New York "World" of April
2C, contains the following, which is
ail news to us :
Washington, April 25. An olllcor
aboard one of the United States ves
sels cruising in the Pacific station
writes confidentially to a friend in
this city giving the details of the
unique elopment and ninrringo of a
brother officer. The names of tho
interested parties have been kept
secret, but the story itself has leak
ed out. A piomising young officer
of the Pacific squadron while ashore
at Honolulu recently became deeply
smitten with tho charms of a young
native girl, whose dusky skin did
not prevent her from entertaining
very correct ideas about the atten
tions she should allow a foreign
officer to show her. The young
woman's father had observed with a
jealous eye the admiring glances of
the olllcor, and had foi bidden his
pretty daughter to receive the at
tentions in any form, going so far as
lo icturn to him several nosegays
the American had sent to his in
amorata. The young lady, however,
appears to have lost her heart very
early in the episode, and rebelled
violently when her father informed
her that if lie should intercept
another love-letter from young
"Brass Buttons," as ho contempt
uously styled tho officer, he would
be obliged to lock her up until the
American squadron should leave the
At a clandestine meeting of the
pair this threat was communicated
to the young man, who immediately
decided upon a desperate resolution.
Going to tho irate father he made a
formal proposal of marriage, which
the old gentleman indignantly; de
clined. The young man pleaded to
no purpose. The dusky parent was
obdurate. The young fellow then
made up his mind to take tho matter
into his own hands.
Securing the consent of tho young
lady, which seems to have been
forthcoming readily enough, he
planned an clopmont in genuine
Ameiican fashion. Arranging with
:i missionary to tic the knot, ho
waited for a dark night and slipped
quietly away from his ship, accom
panied only by a feliow-ofliccr, who,
afteis wearing secrecy, was nduced
to act as best man.
Rowing ashore with muffled oars,
the twq repaired to tho residence of
the bride-expectant, who was noise
lessly assisted from a window. The
little party hurriedly sought the
minister, who married the young
officer and his sweetheart. The
bride was then returned to her
father's house, as she had been
taken away, by the window, and the
officer then hastened aboard ship.
The bridegroom does not appear to
have formed any very definite plans
for the disposition of his dusky
bride, but from tho account which
reaches hero, he appears to be suffi
ciently infatuated with her to bring
her lo Ameiica upon his return to
his native land.
It seems to be agreed among the
students of Ai otology that it will bo
useless to attempt again to reach
the North Polo by way of Green
land, which has repulsed and des
troyed so many gallant men. Tho
weight of opinion is now in favor of
making the next trial by way of the
seas north of Norway. The latest
writer upon tho subject is the dis
tinguished explorer, Karl Petersen,
a Norwegian, who has made a scien
tific stud' of all the conditions of
Arctic exploration, and has himsolf
penetrated tho Polar Ilasin moro
than once. He recommends that
every year, for a period of ten or
eleven years, several well-equipped
steamers bo dispatched toward the
Polo along four routes: One starting
from the north of Norway, ono from
tho Yenisei or Obi, ono from tho
New Siberian Islands or the Lena,
and one from a suitable spot in
Bchring Strait. All these would be
diicctcil toward tho Pole by such
channels as might open before thorn.
Tho plan of tho expeditions should
not be formed earlier than July, or
if possible, August. By that time
many of the huntsmen have return
ed fiom their first voyage to several
paits of the Arctic Sea, and tho ex
peditions would bo in possession of
a fair knowledge of the state of the
ice at different points. Dr. Peter
sen reasons that the ice masses in
the Polar Basin arc in constant but
varying motion, and that this plan
would enable ono oc another of tho
expeditions to seize the right mo
ment for a dash northward. Sooner
or later tho opportunity to reach a
high latitude would at some point
