MR. IV. I. BISHOP.
Mr. W. I. Bishop is again back in
Honolulu, after a few days' rest
and recreation at Waimanalo, on the
east side of this island, where he
was the guest of Hon. John Cum
mins. The fresh air of that local
ity, where the trade winds may
"blow and be glorified" without ob
sti notion, appears to have benefited
Mr. Bishop immensely; for his face
has wjdened, his voice improved,
and his paralytic arm become mea
During his stay at "Waimanalo,
one night Mr. Bishop gave a minil
rerding seance for the amusement of
the laborers on the plantation
native llawaiians and Chinese. Of
the latter there were about four
hundred present. An interpreter
explained to them, before each ex
periment, what was intended to be
done or attempted.
Preparatory to an experiment
showing how stolen property could
be discovered and restored to the
rightful owner, the interpreter,
through misunderstanding, announc
ed that Mr. Bishop was about to pick
out all the thieves present; where
upon about twenty Chinamen be
came uiieaHy in their seats, and re
tired. It ma- be added, that many
of the number hnd been suspected
of a propensity to appropiiate the
property of their neighbors.
Another experiment was, writing,
in Chinese characters, the name of
a Chinawoman in China, the wife of a
man in the audience. The husband
had secretly written tho name on a
slip of paper, and placed it in his
pocket. Mr. Bishop, without having
seen it and whilo blindfolded, wrote,
in view of the company, a perfect
imitation, except that the characters
read from right to left instead of
from top to bottom. This struck
the Celestials with astonishment,
and believing it to have been achiev
ed by supernatural agency, imme
diately withdrew in a body.
HAWAIIAN OPERA HOUSE.

There were lots of amusement at
the Opera House on Saturday night,
when the olllcers of II. B, M. S.
Cormorant and a number of Hono
lulu ladies and gentlemen combined
to give an entertainment in aid of
the funds of the British Benevolent
Society, aud hearty laughter shook
the audience all over.
Tableaux vivants constituted the
opening and concluding numbers of
the programme. The opening ono
was called "Leap Year," and the
figures of tho picture, set off by ap
propriate surroundings, were, Miss
Dora Dowsett, Miss C. Mist, Miss
L. Mist, Miss lihodes, Miss E.
Wodehouso, Mr. Deenng, Lieuten
ant Kingsmill and Lieutenant St.
John, both of II. II. M. S. Cormo

"Leap Year," for it is popularly
supposed that that is a special priv

though young gentlemen know very
well that attacks from that quarter
are not conllncd to leap year. The
supposed leap year privilege was

the concluding tableau. There wcie

Miss D. Dow-Mitt, Miss C. Fuller,
Miss Glade, Miss Green, Miss Hum

Miss Putnam, Miss Kobcrtson, Miss
Widdifleld and Miss Wodehousc.
A very pretty combination and a
very pretty picture, but the artifi
cial light indispensably necessary to
complete effect, was rather weak
and did its duty imperfectly.
A comedietta, entiled "Tho Mis
ogynists," in which Lieutenants
Kingsmilland St. John, Miss Khodcs
and Miss E. Wodehousc were the
players, was intensely amusing.
The gentlemen had formed a club,
the rules of which strictly prohibited
the society of woman, or even the
mention of her name. They did
their own sewing, cooking, etc. The
club consisted of two members. Mr.
Kiugsinill and Mr. St. John com
prising the club, were suddenly and
unexpectedly invaded in their do
main by the two young Indies just
now named. The club men were at
first greatly embarrassed by the pre
sence of the fair sex, which they
were bound by their rules to shun.
The feminine influence, however,
was too strong lor long resistance,
and H the misogynists ultimately
yielded. Both they and tho fair
conquering invaders a.cled their ies
peetive parts, splendidly.
Miss Von Holt, Miss Uhodes, Miss
E. Wodehousc and the Cormorant
gentlemen Lietenanls St. John,
Ivingsiuill and Pears re presented
the characters in "Aunt Charlotte's
Maid," a funny farce. The three
young ladies played with the ease
and naturalness which usually come
from long stage experience, and are
iarely iound m young amateurs.
Miss Von Holt's articulation was re
maikably distinct, and she looked,
as well as acted the veritable "old
aunt" whom she essayed to repre
sent. The maul, Miss 12. Wode
housc, with whom the aunt's nephew
was rather "familiar," played the
vixen superbly. Miss lihodes' part
was less demonstrative, and it was
quietly and undeinonslratively play
ed. Mr. St. John had the biggest
share of work in the farce, but he
was quite equal lo the task, and
caused immense merriment in the
audience by his representation of
Horatio Thomas Spaikins, who was
about to be married to Fanny Vol
lev while bound by a promise to
"Aunt Charlotte's Maid." There
was also considerable fun created
by Mr. Kingsmill and Mr. Pears,
who wcie masters of their respective
The ladies and gentlemen who
took part in the entertainment, are,
one and all, worthy of commenda
tion, for having succeeded so very
well in their respective undertakings.
It is gratifying to record that theie
was a full house lo enjoy the fun,
and if laughter and applause indi
cate enjoyment, there was a house
full of it also.

The most interesting item of Am
erican news is the Presidential nomi
nation. The convention after eight
times balloting nominated Harrison
of Indiana, with Levi P. Morton of
New York, vice-President.
Before the convention of whole
sale grocers of New York, on the
20th June, a committee reported
that the refiners of the sugar trust
were disposed to aid the grocers in
their effort to fix the market value
of sugar so that a margin of profit
can bo obtained. All they asked
was to obtain tho agreement of all
the sugar refiners. The matter was
left in the hands of a committee.
Considerable interest centered in
the race between the Puritan and
Volunteer in the first class sloop
race of tho Eastern Yacht Club re
gatta, a distanco of .10 miles, on
Juno 28. The Volunteer practi
cally distanced her antagonists,
finishing two miles ahead of the
Puritan, which was easily second
over tho Stranger, tho other compe
titor. Good time was made, not
withstanding the heavy sea.

traversing Aruwuuini, Stanley struck
into a rough, mountainous country,
covered with dense forests. Tho
natives, who wero excited by re
ports spread by tho Arabs, disputed

there was continuous fighting. Stan
ley was severely wounded by an
arrow. Ho was compelled several
times to construct camp3 in order to
repel the attacks and was obliged to
use tho reserve provisions, which
were intended for Emin Boy. The
Soudanese attached to tho force had
all died or disappeared. The de
serters intimate that the caravan
lost one-third of its men, nnd they
say many of those remaining were
ill, including tho Europeans. Stan
ley was encamped when tho desert
ers left. lie was surrounded by
hostiles, and was unable to send
new stores directly to Yambungua.
Major Barlcllot has returned to

News came, by the last Austra
lian steamer of the renewal by the
Parliaments of Now Zealand and
New South Wnlos, now in gefcsion,
of the mail carrying contracts with
tho Oceanic Steamship Company.
The present contracts for the trans
portation of the mails of tho colo
nics named, between Auckland,
Sydney and this port, will expire in
November next. The renewal is
for another year, until November,
1880, at the same terms. By theso
terms the colonics agree to pay the
company for the service jL'38,000
about S187.000. The same time
will be maintained, averaging about
twenty days from this port to Auck
land and twenty-live days to Syd
ney. There was some talk of an
arrangement with tho Union line
steamers to co-operate by connec
tions with the Oceanic steamers at
Fiji, but it was not consummated,
and the service will continue as
heretofore. The steamers also
carry all the mail of the United
States for the colonies, but at pre
sent receive nothing for the service
from this Govcrnniont. The com
pany managers say that Postmaster'
General Vila in 1885 promised to
pay $20,000 a year as the share of
lhi3 Government toward the service,
but that tho pledge has never boen
fulfilled. The postal authorities of
the colonies have recently been in
correspondence with Postmaster
General Dickinson with the viow of
securing this Government's co-operation
in tho renewal of the com
pacts. The correspondence came
to nothing tangible, according to
letters from Secretary Graj' of the
New Zealand ofllce, and the colo
nies agreed to maintain the service
by themselves. The Postmaster-
General offered to give $!J0,000 a
your, providing that this Govern
ment should have equal privileges
with the colonics in regard to de
taining steamers, imposing fines for
delajs, etc. There was no sugges
tion mado of paying for past ser
vices, and Mr. Gray writes that his
people and the New South Wales
authorities thought, in view of rela
tive amounts contributed, that tho
Postmaster-General asked too much.
They thought it best to make up
the sum among themselves neces
sary to secure tho service. "We
may be poor," he wroto to tho
agent of the New Zealand Govern
ment here, "but we have yet some
The control of tho mail service by
tho colonics exclusively may work
some hardship for innils going from
this country. Since no contilbution
in support is made by this Govern
ment the company will not in future
delay steamers for ovcilaud mails
as has been done. If tho British
mails are in and ready to go to the
colonies no other mails will be Wait
ed for. Contracts with the Hawai
ian Government for another year
