DEPARTURE OF THE HALL.
The steamer W. G. Hall was de
layed a few minutes after 10 o'clock
this morning by late freight. The
King was down to sec her off. Two
women, a man and a dog came near
being involuntarily cairied off. The
women were bundled ashore, how
ever, amid vociferous laughter, from
the crowd, at the ludicrous attitudes
of the dusky ladies. The man found
his own away out onto the wharf , while
the dog was tin own over the side.
Two canoes, for Kailua, Hawaii, to
bo used in the races at that place,
on the 11th of June, were taken by
tho Hall, for the King.
A representative of this paper has
been shown a curious and conglo
merate collection of coins, taken in
the regular course of business by
Mr. II. J. Nolle, at the Beaver Sa
loon. They represent many nations
and some of them would be of
valuo in tho cabinet of a numisma
tologist as rare specimens. There
uro coins from the Straits settle
ments, from tho various states of
South 'America, Japan, China nnd
several other countries so remote
from Hawaii, that it would seem
hardly probable that they could find
their way here.
RACES AT THE PARK.
Quite a number of people visited
Kapiolani Park yesterday afternoon
to witness the races. There were
thieo races as follows:
Three-eighths of a mile dash for
S250, between Ivanhoe, Jr., owned
by N. Shinner, and Nellie, owned
by Dick Davis. "Won by tho for

three in fivo for 6250 a side. This
lace was between Dick Davis' Al
bert L and Harry Agnew's Mink.
Both horses were driven by their
owners. The first heat was won by
Albeit L in 2 minutes and 32 sec
onds; tho second by Mink "in 2
minutes and 31 seconds; tho third
by Mink in 2 minutes, 3 Is seconds;
the fouith by Albert L in 2 minutes,
3 1 seconds ; and the fifth by Mink

A BIG FIND !
A good portion of tho town was
consideiably excited to-day over the
rcpoited unearthing of about S10,
000, this morning. Some would not
believe the report, even when told
by persons who know.
The report was that Mr. J. P.
Bowcn, formerly of the Keystone
saloon, struck 10,000 while digging
for worms for hi chickens in Mr.
Bradley's garden, Burclaiiia street.
What a jack Mr. Bow en is for
telling about tho discover', man'
said. I would not have told, was the
Mr. W. Chilton, son-in-law to Mr.
Bradley, was tcportud to have filed
a claim to tho money for Mr. Biad
ley. A Bulletin reporter taking the
case in hand, fust saw Mr. Chilton,
who said ho did not. believe in
the reported find. Tek-phoning
out to Mrs. J. P. Bowcn, the
reporter whs ionised any informa
tion. She had been iustiuctcd not
to say anything about it. Searching
the town, Mr. Bow en was at last
The report was true. Five tin
cans about 3J or -l inches deep, by
about 2A- inches in diameter, had
been unearthed in Bradley's garden
this morning, and in each tin was
money. One of the tins was shown
to the reporter. It showed the
fresh maiks of tho pick-axe with
which Mr. Bowcn struck it. The tin
was rusty and 'appealed ancient.
On the inside, at one end were a
number of twenty nnd ten dollar
gold pieces, coveiud with mildew.
At the other end of the tin were
American greenbacks, mouldy and
decayed, and amounting to several
hundred dollais. These greenbacks
have j-et their numbers and are, of
course, good. Between S7,Q00 and
510,000 are thought to bo in the five
HONOLULU LITERARY AND
There was a slim attendance at
the meeting of this society last
night, owing in a measure to other
attractions, it being a semi-holiday.
The subject for debate was,
"Which is tho least objectionable
to the community, a miser or a
spendtlnift?" Atter a spirited de
bate, in which quite a number of
the members took part, it was agreed
tliat the spcndthiih had the best of
the argument, and was thought to
be the least objectionable.
The Attorney-Gi'iieial of the So
ciety, Mr. A. Robertson, having in
advertently committed a breach of
etiquette by calling "Rats!" was
tried by a jniy of six of the mem
bers. They retired for a few min
utes for deliberation, after which
they returned to the room. The
foreman of thu jury asked the
chairman who was also judge if
the accused would abide by tho ver
dict to be rendered by the jury?
Whereupon the accused declaicd
that he would not abide by any ver
dict rendered in such an irregular
way ; if he was to be tried for an
offence, he wanted the privilege of
introducing witnesses and providing
counsel for the defence. The fore
man of the jury said he was sorry
Mr. Robeitson had tcfuscd to abide
by their verdict, as it was for ac
quittal. After the jury had performed
their duty they were discharged,
and the meeting adjourned.

past Secretary, could not accept a
re-nomination on account of being
about to leave the country. Mr. T.
It. Walker was therefore chosen to
the position. The gentleman was
anxious to decline, because of a
multiplicity of similar duties engag
ing his attention, but the meeting
was determined he should not.
The Ralief Committee was also
re-elected, with the addition of Dr.

At Pittsburg on May oth, in an
interview, Chairman Jones, of the
National Republican Committee,
said, so far as Blaine's health is
concerned, he was as well as he
ordinal ily is.
He said: "Blaine has not de
cided to be a candidate. Ho has
not asked his fiiends to make an
aggressive movement in his behalf ;
he has not written any letters de
clining the nomination the second
lime, and it is not true that he will
be on the ocean and out of reach of
tho telegraph when the Chicago Con
vention is in session.
"Blaine said he desired to remain
abroad two years, but feared he
would not be able to do so. I would
not be surprised to hear he was
coming home next month, or he may
stay until next year.
"There is no denying the fact
that ever since his- declination there
has been a growing sentiment among
Republicans that Blaine should ac
cept the leadership of the party in
the next grcnt battle. This move
ment has great strength, and will
bo a powerful, if not the roost
powerful element in the next con
vention. I do not think that it is
tho intention of Blaine to come out
squarely for any cundidatc. He is
only human, nnd may, of course,
say so-and-so is my friend, and I
would like to see him nominated,
and such expressions would have
The San Francisco Examiner
says: "The countty need not stand
any longer in doubt legarding Mr.
Blnine's position. Everything points
to his being in thePiesidonti.il light,
although his fiiends profess ignor
nnco of any change of mind on his
part. But it is noteworthy that
while making these general denials,
and affecting to bcliovo in the sin
ceiity of his intention to withdraw
from the contest, they have been
keeping him steadily in the public
eye, and working up a Blaino boom
with untiring energy."
The United States Consul at
Stockholm has infoi med the Depart
ment of State that the Swedish par
liament has decided to put a duty
of 20 ore (5.4 cents) per kilogiain
on pork and 25 oro (n'i cents) on
