a position on the verandah on the
Waikiki side of the Palace and
played between the dances. The
verandahs wcie lit up by numerous
colored electric .lights. Some of
the toilets worn by the ladies were
extremely handsome, and in contrast
with the full evening dress worn by
the gentlemen and the uniforms of
the "officers from the diffeient war
ships, presented a very gay scene.
Quite a number of gentlemen wore

"That all officers of the Hawaiian
Goverment who are under the pres

Tho San Francisco Evening Bul
lotln of October 31st, has tho following-
Of all tho 150 mon now engaged
at Claus Sprcckels' now bcot-suirar
factory at Watsonville, none are
buster daily than the millionaire su
gar refiner himself. It is his boast
that he was trained to Inbor, and no
one who has seen him there during
tho first wot k of beet-crushing can
wonder that such earnest activity
has brought him success. Dressed
in old clothes, surrounded by the
necessary dirt of tho factory, ho has
set all his workmen an example of
Industry, There were hundieds of
details of crushing noted by him
during his recent trip to Germany,
which he could better show than
tell, and this ho has been doing.
Only once during the past three
weeks or so has' he taken time to
come home. Last Satin day he
came to the city on tho morning
train, but the afternoon train took
him hack to his work.
Regarding results of his experi
mental project, he is satisfied and
enthusiastic. From tho first he has
been confident of the success of the
beet-sugar industry, in California,
when properly managed, with the
best modern mechanical appliances,
and tho product that is being turned
out daily only serves to bear out his
predictions. The first shipments of
crude sugar came from Watsonville
to tho Potrero refinery last week,
and trains have since been bringing
carloads daily. Tho beets produced
about Watsonville are proving very
satisfactory. One fanner whoso
beets contained about 22 per cent.
Bacchariue matter will not 88 a ton
for his crop. When the seed was
distributed the farmers were guar
anteed $i a ton, but'few anticipated
they would realize double that figure.
That the project is as much a suc
cess as could be is unquestioned.
Tho understanding now is that
when the busy times arc through at
the factory, Mr. Sprcckels will think
matters oyer and arrange for tho lo
cation at one or two favoiablc points
in the State of other plants for the
canying on of the industry in which
he has such confidence.
THE U. S. S. ADAMS AT SAMOA.
The following appears in the Syd
ney "Herald" of Oct. 27th, from
their special correspondent at Apia,
Samoa, under date of Oct. lGth:
The land between Mulinuu Point
and the town of Apia is owned by
an American half-caste named Scan
lau'. About ten days ago some of
Taniaseso's men broke into Scan
lan's house, carried off some of his
goods, cut down his trees and
threatened to shoot him. This out
rage was reported by Scanlan to the
American Consul, who, in his turn,
reported it to Captain Leary, of the
U. S. S. Adams. Captain Leary
theieupon wrote to Capt. Fritze, of
the German gunboat Adlcr, asking
if Taraasese's mon were under his
protection, as he observed that an
armed guard of some 50 German
marines were stationed on shore
under the Tamasese flag. Captain
Fritzc replied, refening Captain
Leary to tho German Consul. Capt.
Leary replied that this was not a
diplomatic nor political question,
but one of a military nature, and
again demanded a reply from Capt.
Fiitze. In the meantime prepara
tions were made for landing a de
tachment of American marines on
Scanlan' s land. The manager of thu
German firm hero made repeatod
offers to Scanlan for his land, offer
ing to buy or lease it at anjj price
however high. Failing in this they
offered to pay him a pension of 100
dollars a month if be would only
haul down the American flag ; but
to all those proposals Scanlan turn
ed a deaf car. Finding that
the Germans could not induce
Scanlan to abandon his claim
or withdraw his complaint, and
knowing that Captain Leary was
determined to act, Tamasese and
Brandies voluntarily abandoned
Mullnu Point and the protection of
tho German war vessel. They left
Mulinu Point with all their follow
ers about midnight on Friday. Some
of Tamasesc's people have returned
to their houses in Savaii, but the
majority have gone to Salufata, a
placo on the coast about 10 miles to
tho eastward of Apia. There they
. are daily expecting an attack from
Malictoa's forces. A battle will
probably be fought this week, which
will probably cud in tho extinction
of the Tamasese party. The follow
ers of Malietoa are as six to one
compared with those of Tamasese,
and tho former includo the whole of
tho Tuamasga party, which is tho
great fighting tribe in tho Samoau
About 3 o'clock this morning some
one entered the premises of Frank"
Ludsvlko on Queen street witli tho
intention of carrying off three little
pigs. The thief or thieves found
the animals securely tied by the
legs, and in attempting to loosen
the cords mado considerable noise,
awakening the inmates. Mrs. Luds
vlko went out into tho yard when
tho intruders made good their es
cape, but not before hurling a rock
at her which, however, missed its
aim.- Nov. 24.

"Magniphone" is the namo of a
little funnel-shaped instrument,
made of tin. It is intended for at
tachment to a telephone transmitter.
Its use, as the nainu indicates, is to
magnify tho sound. With ono of
theso little instruments attached to
a telephone from which a message
is being sent enables the person at
the other end to hear the faintest
whisper in fact to hear distinctly
ordinary conversation held in any
part of the room where the magni
phone is doing duty. This is a new
and extremely useful invention.
Mr. Phillip Peck is agent for the
Hawaiian Islands, and is now can
vassing for orders. He has hero at
present a few samples only, which
have been tried by several promi
nent citiens, with tho result of an
order being given in each instance.
Mr. Peck brought a magniphone to
the Bulletin Office for trial this
morning, and the Bulletin testifies
that the trial was completely satis
factory. The ease of transmitting
a message by its aid is wondei fully
inci cased. No one who once uses
the instalment will ever consent to
be without it. Its price is $1.25.
DEATH OF MRS. EMERSON.
The sad news of the death of Mrs.
U. S. N. Emerson at about 3 this a.
m., from old age, was conveyed
across the wires from . Wnialua,
Oahu. In Mrs. Emerson is taken
away another of those whose whole
soul was devoted to good works.
The prime of her life, the pride of
her health and strength and Ifer old
age was a glad, continuous offering
to her Saviour.
She was born Sept. 27, 180G, at
Nelson, New Hampshire, U. S. A.
She was married to Rev. J. S. Em
erson in 1831, and the same year,
with her husband, started with the
reinforcement of missionaries, of
which Alexandor Armstrong, Ly-
Hitchcock, Clark and others
members, for these Isl-
They left New Bedford,
on Nov. 28, 1831, and arriv
ed in Honolulu May 17, 1832.
The story of their voyage hither,
their privations and haidships after
arrival, the glorious success of their
endeavors among the natives, are
all matters which make many pages
iu the history of this nation. Those
who knew Mrs. Emerson could but
ovc and admire her; patient, gen
tle, kind, forgetful of self, ever
ready to assist in times of troublo,
with a firm and unfaltering trust in
God, whose promises she tested so
well she endeared herself to all with
whom she came in contact. Sho
was the truo friend of the natives,
helping them in all ways she could,
excusing tneir shortcomings as does
a mother those of her children.
Sho will bo buried to-morrow,
Sunday, the 25th inst., in the ceme
tery at Waialua, beside her beloved
husband who preceded her in 18GG,
and 2 of her children. . She leaves 5
sons: Samuel N. Emerson of Wala-
lua,Dr. N. B. Emerson, President of I
tho Board of Health ; Dr. Justin E.
Emerson of Detroit, Michigan ; J.
h, Emerson, Civil Engineer; and
Rov. Oliver P. Emerson of Peace
dales, It. I., U. S. A. ; to mourn her
incalculable loss. They have the
heartfelt sympathy of all. Her life
was a glad, glorious triumph, her
end a sudden and peaceful victory.

Arrival of tho Alameda with the
They aro Loyally Entertainod.
The Royal Mail steamer Alameda
after disappointing evcrj'ono on Sa
turday by her non-arrival, was sig
nalled off Diamond Head at lmlf
past five o'clock Sunday morning.
Soon after that there wa3 consider
able activity nil over town and
crowds of people began to assemble
on tho difforcnt wharves. As the
steamer lay off tho boll buoy wait
ing for the pilot, .telescopes and
opera glasses were brought into re
quisition for the purpose of inter
pietation of the various signals dis
played by the steamer a3 to tho re
uult of the Presidential election.
Tho Hawaiian flag was noticed flying
from the foremast and as it had
been arranged by Mr. G. E. Board
man before leaving San Francisco
with the Hon. II. A. Widemann,
that it should be hoisted there in
case of the election of Harrison,
shouts of "It's Cleveland" wero
soon turned into those of "It's Har
rison." A bandanna flag displayed
on tho steamer gave the Democrats
considerable hope. After the steamer
had passed the lighthouse it became
pretty generally known that Harri
son was the next President of tho
United States. Within half an hour
after the arrival of the Alameda an ex
tra was issued from the Daily Bul
letin office, giving the result of the
electoral vote,with other news. This
extra was pretty well scattered
through the town.
The deck of the steamer as she
drew near the dock was lined with
passengers, among .them several
well known island people and the
Spalding baseball tourists. The
Hawaiian band was on the wharf
and played several appjopriatc se
lections as a welcome to the tour
ists. Mr. George W. Smith had
previously boarded tho steamer and
presented a number of our residents
to Mr. A. G. Spalding, (who by the
way, is a cousin of Mr. Smith's),
the manager of the ball teams and
an entnusiastic baseball man him
self. Carriages decorated with flags
were in readiness and conveyed the
baseball party to the Hawaiian Ho
tel, where shortly afterwards thev
partook of breakfast.
At 10:30 o'clock the baseball
party and their friends, accompanied
by His Excellency Geo. W. Merrill,
U. S. Minister Resident, formed in
a line of twos in front of the Hotel,
and morched to tho Palace, led by
tho band, and preceded by a num
ber of ladies in carriages. At the
Palace Mr. J. W. Robertson, Vice
Chamberlain, presented Mr. Men ill
to His Majesty, Mr. Merrill pre
sented Mr. Spalding, and Mr.
Spalding presented the following
ladies and gentleman : A. C. Anson
and wife, John M. Ward, Fred.
Pfeffer, W. M. Earle, Fred. II.

Robertson, Major Bcitletnan, Major
Cornwcll, Hon. John A. Cummins,
Hon. John Ena, Hon. Sam. Parker,
Mr. Geo. C. Beckley, and Mr. T.
Shortly after the return of the
party to the Hotel, a request in
writing that a game of baseball bo
played during tho day was present
ed to Mr. Spalding on tho Hotel
balcony. The document had been
in circulation an hour or two only,
but was signed by over a thousand
persons, among whom figured quite
a percentage of citizens in the front
rank of prominence. Mr. Spalding
replied that he would tako ten min
utes for consideration, and wouM
then give a definite answer. After
a brief retirement for consideration
and consultation, tho gentleman re
turned and stated that ho and his
men would have been pleased to
have given an exhibition of baseball
play on that day, did tho law of the
country admit of it; but they had
started out from home with the pur
pose of being regulated in each
country visited by the laws of that
country, and he had been advised
that the Sunday law of this country,
a portion of which ho read, prohi
bited their playing; thcrcfoio, they
could not play, and there would be
no game. Many murmurs of dis
appointment wero heard from the
laige company of bystanders on the
balcony and iu the Hotel grounds.
Lunch over, the party of visitors
broke up into smaller parties and
employed the afternoon in spehig
what they could in the time of tho
city and its suburbs, They were
taken in hand by our own people,
who did their best to entertujn th
strangers, and apparently to the
entire BftUefftotloa of tho lattcrs.

At G o'clock iu tho evening tho
p.irty again rendcztoused at the
Hawaiian Hotel, and from there
went to Queen Kapiolanl's private
retreat, Honuakaha, at the corner
of Queen and Punchbowl streets, to
participate in a native feast pi ovided
by tho King, lions. S. Parker, J. A.
Cummins, J. Ena, and Geo. C.
The grounds presented a charm
ing appearance. Illuminations among
the trees and sbrub3 wcie pi of use
and pretty. Tho maiquco in which
the feast was spread was a mass of
giecnery brought from Waimnnalo
by Hon, John Cummins. A large
proportion of tho edibles also came
horn the same place, and was the
gift of tho same gentleman. Two
long tables, raised a few inches only
from tho iloor, running from cud to
end of the marquee, with a third
running at right angles across one
end, were laden with every mention
able kind of food that can constitute
a genuine Hawaiian feast. In addi
tion to the foreign visitors, a large
company of Honolulu people at
tended. The Kawaihau Quintette
Club was on hand to furnish string
and vocal music. The King sat at
the centre of the cross 'table, with
Mrs, Spalding mother of Mr.
Spalding of the Bascballcrs,
nt his right, and His Excellency C.
W. Ashford, Attorney-General on
But little speechifying followed
the feasting. Mr. Ashford, in a few
appropriate words and in the name
of tho King, proposed tho health of
the baseball players and the excur
sionists accompanying them, in
whoso honor the feast was given.
Mr. Spalding responded, express
ing his sincere thanks and the thanks
of those ho represented, for the
generous and unexpected attention
bestowed upon them during their
day's stay iu Honolulu, culminating
with the magnificent feast in which
they had all shared. He said that
he and his party were baseball
players, and not orators. They
were in the position of the manner
who went to sea and found that he
had left his anchor at home. They
had left their orator at home. They
felt deep gratitude all the same to
His Majesty and his subjects for
their real kindness. Mr. Spalding
before sitting down, proposed a
toast to tho King and his loyal sub
jects. A call was made for Mr. Frank
Lincoln. This gentleman is the
comical genius of the party, and as
somo present had enjoyed his com
icalities dnring the day they were
