' BUMPS AND JINKS.
Two distinguished characters have
recently turned up in the columns
of the "Advertiser." They were
well known in this city about four
2'cars ago, more or less. They then
gave occasional exhibitions in the
Bulletin-. All of a sudden they
disappeared and nobody knew what
had become of them. It appears
that they shipped and went to sea
before the mast, but probably grow
ing tired of "a life on the ocean
wave" and thinking that they were
entitled to some crumbs from the
victorious "reform parly," a party
whoso cause they espoused on the
former occasion, they have again
made us a visit.
On this occasion they have hired
a new hull, and are giving exhibi
tions at the olllce of the "P. C. Ad
vertiser." They have already given
two shows one last week and an
other this. Age and experience
have had a marked clfect on their
style of talk : it smells very loudly
of the sea and the ship. The two
entertainments already given have
been quite enjoyable, and well worth
Bumps is evidently "hand and
glove" with the Government party:
he thinks it is "tip-top," and takes
special pains to convert Jinks to the
same method of thought. Jinks is
very much exercised about the Bul
letin, and in the short space of four
years seems to have forgotten all
about liis old prop. Jinks knows
how to box the compa- and under
stands how to spin a foiecastle yarn,
but the principles ol navigation are
Arabic to him: his education has
been sadly neglected in this line.
Abstract right and abstract wrong
arc beyond his comprehension: he
has neither the learning nor the
mental capacity to grasp them. To
draw a line between u person and a
principle is a problem that Jinks
could never soItc. liis friend
Bumps is unable to assist him. In
fact, they arc a pair.
With them right is right because
it is the work of their fiiends, and
wrong is wiong because it is perpe
trated by those outside of their cir
clc. This accounts for Jinks' in
ability to understand the Bulletin.
lie percoives that when a Samaritan
gives a quarter to a widow he docs
a good deed, but he cannot compre
hend that if the Samaritan next robs
an orphan he commits a wrong act.
"Was not the Samaritan the actor in
each case? It is incomprehensible
that the Bulletin should bless the
gift and curse the robbery, when the
same person is the author of both.
Perhaps an Introduction to our
Arabian friend Antishamus might be
mutually beneficial to Bumps and
Jinks and the Arab. The latter may
impart some light to tho former by
means of parables or nursery fables,
and the former may reciprocate by
essays on the art of steering on to a
reef. At all events, the' would
make a jolly trinity.

A WORTHY OBJECT.
Editor Bulletin: Allow me a
little space for a worthy object. It
is the case of Mr. John Voller, who
for the last 18 years, barring a few
months, has attended to and been
responsible for tho furnace, the
whistle, and the steam boiler that
drives the whole machinery of the
Honolulu Iron "Works. For the
period named ho was daily the first
on duty and tho last to leave. 'Who
ever heard of Vollcr's whistle being
far out or neglected? Sundays and
holidays ever found him fitting his
charge for tho following day
cleaning tho tubes, scaling the
boiler, etc. Humble and unob
trusive lie plodded on the even
tenor of his way; on duty he ate his
frugal meal. A wife and a numer
ous family of young children ab
sorbed his entire earnings, which at
best were small.
Well, faithful VoUer Is no longer ,
able to bo nt his old post, tine' has '
not been for boiiiu li-.no past; joy ho j
lni3 become blind entirely nud ,
hopelessly blind. Th" (.'hue of the j
furnace for some .umy years'
gradually dimmed his vision, until I
tho light of Iiih eyes nt out. He l
is ttnnblo any longer to work for the '
support of his wife and llUlo ones,
and yet they aic depciidiin. upon
The people nt the foundry were
kind atid raised a tmbtiriplioii, but
thin is all gone, and my object in I
writing these Unci ii lo brintr this
deserving case to tb- notice of the
charitable public. (. an'l something
bo done? L.nut.
We know the above to lio a needy
and worthy case, and would urgently
recommend it to the kind considera
tion of the humane and charitable.
a rejSarkS"le "me"ko3Y.
A rcmaikable instance of memory
has just come to my notice, writes a
correspondent to the "Critic" (New
York). Its pesscssor is a lady mem
ber of Dr. Howard Crosby's church
in New York. Without having taken
a single note, she will when she goes
homo write out every word of her
pastor's sermon, and he tells me she
never makes a mistake of a "the"
or an "and" that every sentence
not only embodies his idea but gives
it in his exact language. For
twenty-five years this lady has been
performing these feats of memory,
and during that time she has writ
ten out some two thousand sermons.
The manuscripts of some of them
she has had bound and presented to
Dr. Crosby. They make forty large
volumes. But this is not all of her
devoted labours ; she has written out
also from memory, all of his lec
tures, and she has classified his opin
ions on all the subjects upon which
lie has spoken during these years,
and has made an elaborate series of
indexes lo them. Not. a word is
omitted. Even when the preacher
drops into Greek, Latin, or Hebrew,
she follows him, for she is piollcient
in each of these language.
THE CHINESE NAVY.
China had no navy to speak of
when the trouble with France broke
out in 188ii. She had a few men-of-war,
so-called, hut they were ol no
size and they were commanded by
native ollicera. They generally ran
foul of each otlai when they tried
to mnnoeiivur and Admiral Courbct
was never able to got a fight out of
any of them. The captains preferr
ed running their slnp-i aground to
meeting the enemy. At the affair
of the ilin Forts, the Chinese
squadron actually ran down the
boom which hud been placed to pre
vent the ascent oi the river by the
In 1881 Li Hung (.'hang saw the
iiccessitj of providing a fleet against
future emergencies, and he ordered
the construction of men-of-war in
England and Germany on tho latest
apptoved models. No e.p. use was
spaied. Kvcij ship was provided
with the latest improvements in na
val warfare. Simultaneously a large
dock-yard was established at Foo
Chow and a smaller one at Shang
hai, and European naval architects
were engaged to -.upcrinlDud the
woiks. Vessels have been on the
stocks at these yards ever since.
At the present time China has five
armored vessels. Of these the
largest is tho Chen Yuen, of 7-1,'iO
tons displacement, or nearly as large
again as the Chicago, and 0200
horse-power, against 5000 estimated
horse-power for the Chicago. She
carries four 1 2-inch and two G-inch
breech-loading rifles, besides ma
chine guns and light guns. The
heaviest guns on the Chicago are 8
inch. Her speed is reckoned at
fourteen and a half knots.
Two sister ship?, the King Yuen
and the Sar Yuen, arc similar in
size and equipment to our Atlanta
and Boston. A baibette ship, the
Ting Yuen, with a displacement of
7-130 tons, a battery of 12-inch
Ivrupp rifles, and an estimated
speed of foiuteen and a half knots,
is a more formidable vessel than we
possess in our navy. The Chinese
have, besides, one armored gunboat
of 1!)5 tons displacement, and car
rying one G-iuch Ivrupp rillo. Her
speed is estimated at only eleven
Tho Chincso have no vessels to
correspond with our Baltimore,
Newark or Charleston, but they
have eight unarmored cruisers,
with piotccted decks, with dis
placements ranging from 2200
to 2G00 tons. These vessels are
generally calculated to steam fifteen
knots, and two of them were built to
steam eighteen knots, though they
do not seem to have reached that
rate. Their heavy battery consists
of 8-inch guns, either of the Krupp
or the Armstrong type, besides
hinaller guns of llio same patterns
and torpedo dis-chaigen. Four
smaller cruiaen. built in England,
are supposed to be capable of
steaming sixteen kii'iit,; two of them
iUO feet long, it li 2077 horse
power, carry 10-inch Armstrong ri
lles. Four other o;ui ,ers are on the
Besides these the Chlneae navy
comprises eleven gunboats of -110-horso
power, a flotilla of thirteen
gunboats for coast service at Can
ton, and n torpedo fleet of twenty
one first-class and nine second-class
torpedo boats. Two of the first
class torpedo-honts aie jparanteed
to steam over twemy-tliiee knots.
The navy of tho United States
comprises about sisl- vessels which
are available for service nntl in case
of nccesity four monitors could bo
finished, so as to bo suitable for
harbor defense. But of the old
ships so few arc fit to engage in
modern warfare that in reality the
naval strength of tho United Stales
is nariowcd down to the cruisers
which have been built sinco 18S2.
As the case stands nt present llio
naval strength of China is greater
than ours. But the development of
the science of high explosives and
the extension of the torpedo system
have rendered It very unsafe to say
what hind of craft could be relied
upon to carry on maritime warfare
at the present day. Wo have no
vessels which could engage inn duel
with the Admiral Duperre, or tho
Inflexible, or the Duilio; but, os
our men-of-war have greater speed
and could destroy them from a dis
tance by means of torpedoes, we
need have no apprehension. S. F.
