OUR SAN FRANCISCO LETTER.
San Fiian-cisco, July 1st.
The political pot is boiling. The
lightning did not strike MoKinley
in the Republican convention, but
it played around liiin ominously.
There were reasons why he was not
nominated. One was that ho was
disliked and feared by Forakcr of
Ohio, who has presidential aspira
tions himself ; another was that he
was loyal to Sherman ; but the po
tent one was that the Maine men did
not want him. If they could not
succeed in getting a unanimous
nomination they wanted a man who
would po acceptable to the trusts,
corporations and monopolies ; hence
Harrison, a corporation attorney
nnd avowed enemy of labor unions
and pio-Chincse advocate was
Levi P. Morton, a New York and
London banker, , was put on the
ticket with him to furnish the
"sack," and a private circular has
Tjocii issued to manufacturers by
the Republican committee pointing
out that as this tariff fight is in their
interest exclusively they should
subscribe liberally to "protect Am
erican industry." The Chinese are
puttiug up a big purse for the Re
The great party of "moral ideas"
has fallen very low when its plat
form resolves itself into high taxes
on the necessaries of life and free
whiskey ami tobacco. Itcpcal the
internal revenue taxes on whiskey
and tobacco they say if there be a
surplus, but in any case increase
the taxes through the Custom
House, imposing duties upon arti
cles in common use not imported,
to enable the manufacturers to form
pools or trusts to keep up prices.
The Republican platform made a
bid for the Irish nojjp, but it was an
afterthought, and done in a mala
droit way. Irish nationalists are
tacked on to Brazilian niggers in a
way that suggests the idea that the
"grand old party" thinks more of
the sons of Ham, even the most de
based of their race in the savanahs
of Brazil, than the sons of Milesius,
of Brian Born, "Wolfe Tone, Rob
ert Etumott, and the rest of the
worthies famed in Irish song and
story. Jesting aside, the reference
to the Irish national party and
cause, in its connection, in the Re
publican platform, was an imperti
nence which both English and Irish
voters will not be apt to forget on
the Gth Nov. Gladstone and Par
nell are two of the very highest pro
ducts of Anglo-Saxon civilization,
and to tack them on to - - '

irapericlists, a ; advocatcs of a
"aiier cause and a lower order of
human intelligence than the slaves
of Brazil, is an offence which will
bring it s own punishment at the-polls.
The Ni-w York Sugar Tiust to

planters belong has issued a circu

your planters will get a great deal
of the odium, but little of the pro

The crop outlook is very favorable.

Minister Merrill, with his usual
desire to help the country where ho
is living, has written to the State
Department suggesting the removal
of the embargo upon cattle shipped
from Hawaii to the Coast, with the
view of promoting a trade in live
stock between the two countries.

the quarantine restrictions have been
modified to admit Hawaiian cattle
conditioned upon being taken from
the ship and slaughtered upon ar
fiyal. This is the best that can bo

under obligations to him.
HAWAIIAN OPERA J10USE.
l'.NTUUTAlXMI'.XT IV All) OP lllU lllll-
risii iiknt.vom'.xt socimv.
There were lots of amusement at
the Opera House on Saturday night,
when the ofileers of II. 1$. M. S.
Cormorant and a number of Hono
lulu ladies and gentlemen combined
to give an entertainment in aid of
tho funds of the British Benevolent
Society, aud hearty laughter shook
the audience all over.
Tableaux vivants constituted the
opening and concluding numbers of
tho programme. The opening one
was called "Leap Year," and the
figures of the picture, set off by ap
propriate surroundings, were, Miss
Dora Dowselt, Miss C. Mist, Miss
L. Mist, Miss Rhodes, Miss IS.
Wodehousc, Mr. Decnng, Lieuten
ant Kingsmill aud Lieutenant St.
John, both of II. B. M. S. Cormo
rant. Mr. Whitney and Xilr. II.
Wodehousc. This was a courting
scene, in which the courting was
done by the young ladies, and that
Is presumably why it was called
"Leap Year," for it is popularly
supposed that that is a special priv
ilege of the fair sex in leap year, al
though young gentlemen know very
well that attacks from that quaiter
are not confined to leap year. The
supposed leap year privilege was
The "School ot the Vestals" was
the concluding tableau. There were
sixteen living figures in it Mrs. Ir
win, Mrs. Winter, Miss L. Atkin
son, Miss Barnard, Miss Brown,
Miss D. Dowselt, Miss C. Puller,
Miss Glade, Miss Green, Miss Hum
phreys, Miss C. Mist, Miss L. Mist,
Miss Putnam, Miss Robertson, Miss
Widdifield and Miss Wodehousc.
A very pretty combination and a
very pretty picture, but the artifi
cial light indispensably ncecssaiy to
complete effect, was rather weak
and did its duty imperfectly.
A comedietta, entiled "The Mis
ogynists," in which Lieutenants
Kingsmill and St. John, Miss Rhodes
and Miss E. Wodehousc were the
pla3rcrs, 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. Tho
club consisted of two members. Mr.
Kingsmill and Mr. St. John com
prising the club, were suddenly and
unexpectedly invaded in their do
main by the two youncr ;-(i;03 just
now nam;'. 711C ciub racn were at
urst greatly embarrassed by the pre
sence of the fair sex, which thej'
were bound by their rules to shun.
The feminine inlluencc, however,
was too strong for long resistance,
and the misogynists ultimately
yielded. Both they and the fair
conquering invaders acted their res
pective parts splendidly.
Miss Von Holt, Miss Rhodes, Miss
E. Wodehousc aud the Cormorant
gentlemen Lietenants St. John,
lungsmill and Pears ri presented
the characters in "Aunt Charlotte's
Maid," a funny farce. The three
young ladies played with the case
and naturalness which usually come
from long stage experience, and are
rarely found in young amateurs.
Miss Von Holt's articulation was re
markably distinct, and she looked,
as well as acted the veritable "old
aunt" whom she essayed to repre
sent. The maid, Miss E Wode
housc, with whom the aunt's nephew
was rather "familiar," played the
vixen superbh. Miss Rhodes' part
was less demonstrative, and it was
quieth and undemonstrativcly play
ed. Mr. St. John had the biggest
share of work in the farce, but he
was quite equal to the task, and
caused immense merriment in the
audience by his representation of
Horatio Thomas Sparkins, 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 were masters of their respective
The ladies and gentlemen who
look part in the entertainment, aic,
one and all, worthy of commenda
tion, for having succeeded so very
well in their respective undertakings.
It is gratifying to record that there,
was a full house to enjoy the fun,
and if laughter and applause indi
cate enjoyment, there was a house
ful! of it also.
The royal box was occupied by
the King, Princess Liliuokalanl and
LITERARY AND MUSICAL ENTER
TAINMENT. A literary and musical entertain
ment, out of the ordinary line of
entertainments designated by those
words, was givon, last night, in the
old St. Andrew's Cathedral building.
The musical part was mostly illus
trative of the literary, just as
pictures appear in books to explain
the text. This was tho peculiar
feature alluded to. Mrs. Florence
Williams did the literary part, and
Professor Yarndicy, Miss Von Holt,
Miss Dora Dowsett, Miss M. Rhodes
and Miss C. Mist the musical. After
a duet by Mr. Yarndicy and Miss
Dowsett violin and piano and a
vocal solo Shubcrt's Serenade by
Miss Dowsett, the Rev. Ceo. Wal
lace introduced Mrs. Williams to the
Mrs. Williams spoke on tho liter
ature of tho Victorian era ; that is,
the literature of the period of Queen
Victoria's reign. It was remarked
at tho outset, that if the Victorian
era has not been remarkable for the
writing of history, it has been re
markable for the making of history,
particularly in tho lino of literature.
Popularization and internationaliza
tion of literature were dwelt upon
ns main and distinctive features of
the era. These two points were
interestingly treated and cleaily
elucidated. Mrs. Williams is no
ordinary reader of literature, sim
ply familiarising her mind with, or
imbibing, the thoughts generated
and put into books by others, but
she is a thinker and rcasoner, which
was manifest from her treatment of
this part or her subject. Moreover,
she has ability to express her
thoughts clcariy and fluently in
chaste and classical English. It was
a pleasure to listen to her presenta
tion of ideas, old and new, familiar
The latter and probably most in
teresting part of the lectin c, to the
majority of the listeners, was de
voted to the ppcls of the era.
Swinburne, Tennyson, Browning,
Rosctti, and Longfellow were allud
ed to, and specimens of their com
positions recited or read. It was
here, too, that the musical illustra
tions were introduced. Sonic of the
songs of some of those poets were
sung, and very nicely sung, too, by
the young ladies before mentioned.
Mrs. Williams, instead of reciting
or reading the song when it was
neciicu lor illustration, would an
nounce it to be sung. Miss Von
Holt sang," "Home they brought
her warrior dead ;" Miss D. Dowsett,
"The Brook," Miss C. Mist, "The
Rainy Day;" and Miss M. Rhodes,
Mrs. Williams, in her concluding
observations, remarked that the
Victorian era has been signalized by
a more complete entrance of woman
into literature, and the result has
been the raising up of a class ot
cultured and thoughtful women
more numerous and influential than
at any previous period. The good
and noble Queen Victoria was spoken
of in eulogistic words, to which
every true heart in that audience
gave a lesponsivc throb. Although
not a woman of exceptional intellec
tual capacity, the Queen is a woman
with a well balanced mind, and a
"beautiful, beneficent life."
A vcrseof "God Save the Queen,"
in which the audience joined, closed
the entertainment. The proceeds
are to be devoted to improving and
beautifying St. Andrew's Cathedral
ntCEPTION OF REV. MR. HARRIS.
Queen Emma Hall was gaily
decorated last evening with Japa
nese lanterns, palms, ferns, Hags.
Hawaiian, American and Japanese.
The Japanese tesident in Honolulu,
nearly a hundred, had gatliLred to
greet Rev. M. C. Harris, Superin
tendent of the M. E. Japanese Mis
sion in San Fiancisco. Rev. Mr.
Miyama and others of that mission
have been laboring on the various
islands, for some months past, for
the spiritual welfare of their coun
trymen. Mr. Harris finds the work
opening with prospects of speedy
and remaikable results. Over 100
have joined the Temperance So
ciety. Every one connected with
the Japanese Consulate rejoices in
Christian faith and its accompany
ing blessings. There is a rising
tide of Christian zeal for the conver
sion of all the Japanese on these
islands. Rev. Mr. Harris was wel
comed in behalf of the Christian
people of Honolulu by Rev. Dr.
Hyde, and by the Consul, M. Taro
Ando, in behalf of the Japanese
community. Judge MeCully, Judge
Lyman and Rev. S. E. Bishop join
ed in the felicitations of the occa
sion. Rev. Mr. Harris responded
very pleasantly and impressively in
both English and Japanese. The
occasion will long be remembered by
all present as one of peculiar inter
est and pleasure. Mrs. Ando, in
behalf of the Japanese, entertained
as hostess of the evening many
ladies, connected with the Woman's
Board, who were present to join in
the social lcstivities of the evening.
A BANK OF SMOKE-.
Capt. J. O. Wikmau, master of
the schooner Eva, which arrived
yesterday afternoon from Eureka
via Mahtikona, reports that at 11:30
o'clock, yesterday morning, the
schooner struck a bank of thick red
dish smoke, with a sulphuric smell,
between Lanai and Kahoolawc. The
bank was 20 miles long and so dense
that when the Eva was in the midst
of it, persons standing the length of
the vessel apart could hardly dis
cern each other. At 3 o'clock that
afternoon the Eva got clear of the

MR. W. I. BISHOP.
Mr. W. T. Bishop is again back in
Honolulu, after a few days' rest
and lecrcalion at Wnimaiialo, on the
oast side of this Hand, where hu
was the guest of lion. John Cum
mins. The fresh air of lh.it local

struction, appears to have benefited

During his stay at Waiinanalo,
one night Mr. Bishop gave a mind
nailing seance for the amusement of
the laborers on the plantation
native Hawaiians 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
bo discovered and restored to the
rightful owner, ihe interpreter,
thtough misunderstanding, announc
ed that Mr. Bishop was about to pick
out all the thieves present; where
upon about twenty Chinamen be'
came uneasy in their seats, and re
tired. It may bo added, that many
of the number had been suspected
of a propensity to appropiiatc 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 the name on a
slip of paper, and placed it in his
pocket. Mr. Bishop, without having
seen it and while 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.

Jules Tavernier has again taken
up his abode at Ililo and opened a
studio atMons. Leons with a serious
intention, at last, of completing the
numerous orders he has on hand

Work on this, however, will not be
commenced for the present.
Tavernier lias had a very serious
attack of Gastric fever which re
quired all the skill of his able and
attentive physician to pull him
through. This was caused by the

wharf this morning, soliloquizing on
Quiet, dull, dead ! (shaking his
head in a thoughtful, melancholy
way) 1 can't get even Chinese work
to do. White men arc being run in
for vagrancy, while the Chinese and
Portuguese idlers laugh in their
sleeves. The men-of-war arc keep
ing the place alive ; but one is going
away on Tuesday and what's more
the sugar season is pretty nearly
over, and the number of merchant
traders will soon begin to decrease ;
then wc might as well go to bed and
sleep like "Rip Van Winkle," for
the town will be as dead as a grave

At about 1 1 o'clock this morning
the steamer Waiinanalo took in tow
the schooner Kaalokai, off Puuloa.
The Kaalokai left here this morning
for Koloa, Kauai. The main boom
was carried away in a squall, and
after futile attempts to beat her way
back to port under foresail and jib,
she deemed it advisable to signal the
Waiinanalo for assistance. The Wai
inanalo and the schooner got here at
about 1 :30 o'clock. July 11.
THE HALEAKALA'S TROUBLES.
Tho schooner Ilaleakala arrived
from Pcpcekco this morning, after
a two weeks' battle with the weather.
She was compelled to leave Pcpcekco
twice and take .shelter in Ililo. Tho
sea was running high at Pcpcekco,
completely submerging the Ilalea
kala at times and threatening to
drive her ashore. The schooner
lost an anchor and chain during her
struggles, and sho could not wait for
a full load of sugar. July 11.

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

the sugar refiners. The matter was
left in the hands of a committee.

into a rough, mountainous country,
covered with dense forests. The
natives, who were excited by re
ports spread by the Arabs, disputed
the passage of the expedition and
I there was continuous lighting. Stan
ley was severely wounded by an
arrow. He was compelled several
times to construct camps in order to
repel the attacks and was obliged to
use the icserve provisions, which
were intended for Emin Boy. The
Soudanese attached to the foicc had
all died or disappeared. The de
serters intimate that the caravan
lost one-third of its men, and they
s:i3' many of those remaining were
ill, including the Europeans. Stan
Icy was encamped when the desert
ers left. Ho was surrounded by
hostilcs, and was unable to send
new stores directly to Yambungua.

Yauibungua, where he was awa'iting
