Husband (sings) "Exactly so."
Wife But, dear, did you corao

Pearl Harbor and Back
Tho Uniquo and Extensive Lagoon
Harbor of Pearl Rivor Dcsorib
od Tho Trip and Iho Sosn
ory Tho Possibilities of
tho Region Its Re
At 9 a. m. on Wednesday
ing the steamer Ewa left her
ings at Brewer's wharf, Honolulu,
and proceeded on her voyage to
Pearl River, carrying about two
dozen ladies and gentlemen who had
been provided with complimentary
tickets through the courtesy of Mr.
B. P. Dillingham. Among the
beneficiares was the writer, who
thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and
took the following notes of the sur
roundings of the Peail liiyor region
and the extensive land-locked har
bor which should he more seen and
better known than it is.
The distance from Honolulu by sea
is about fj miles fiom heads tohi-ads,
and wc anived off IVail Rivei in
a little over one hour, the sea upon
the occasion being calm as tne pro
verbial mill pond, and no symptoms
of seasickness appeared among
either the ladies or juveniles, al
though there wero several of these
who seldom put foot upon a seagoing
Looking back to the Koolaupoko
range of mountains, their outline
was very clearly dellnod against the
morning sky; no cloud rested upon
the entire range, every peak and
valley was seen as in a picture, with
all the shades and coloimg given by
the morning sun. Along the shore,
as we proceeded on our voyage, the
water curled on tho submerged reef,
but did not break until the waves
rolled in upon the fringe of sandy
beach which extends all the way to
Barber's Point, with the exception
of the break in the coastline at
Pearl River entrance. The head of
our steamer has now turned shore
ward, and wc round the
breakers that dash on a reef
rmht, oteaming on calm
I'EAUL RIVER BAR.
On parts of this bar there is not
more than 1A fathoms water, 9 feet
at low tide; but, being like Hono
lulu on tho lee side of the Island,
the sea here is comparatively calm ;
and, to vessels drawing less than 8
feet, there is no danger if the sailing
directions of the port are duly ob
served. The bar, like the inner
channel bottom, is of coral forma
tion ; aim, in the nanus ot an ex
pert at blasting sunken rocks, the
expense of removing this impedi
ment to the ingress of large vessels
would not he nearly so great as is
generally supposed. When we think
of Hell-gate, New York, and other
great works of blasting, the Peail
River bar sinks into nothing com
paratively. The length in the shal
low portion is about 100 yards, and
the widtli is optional with the gov-,
eminent. Once over this obstacle
we come int6 gi eat depth, 17 to 24
fathoms, and water deep enough for
all purposes is chaiacteristic of the
extensive harbor inside. We now
I'UULOA SAI.T TOKKS,
the propei ty of J. I. Dowsetl, Esq.,
of Honolulu. These works are at
the west side of the entianee to
Pearl River, and the windmill is a
prominent object in the landscape as
wo enter. It is also one of the
guides in steeling vessels inward.
On the eastern side and opiosite to
the Puuloa buildings, is the fUheiy,
where arc a number of buildings in
habited by Chinamen. The sur
roundings here are somewhat Ideal
owing to the bare stretches of sand ;
but they, at the same time, seem
natural as the abodes of flheiuien
whose dwellings are, iu all countries,
generally perched upon bare rocks
or upon equally bare sands near the
"sad sea waves."
Up to the present time no sea
bird has been seen to fan the air,
nor n fish fin to break the glatsy
surface of the deep; but as we glide
up the channel wc pabs fish ponds,
and we observe hundreds of plover
running pu tliu shpre or skimming
in curving llight the margin of the
For some distance Mr. Dowsett's
lands bound the channel on both
sides; but finally we come to a
dividing fence on the left and then
skirt the estate of James Campbell,
t Before leaving Mr. Dowsett's do
main, however, we may mention the
old slunk pond around which we
wind, and remark hi icily on the
of the natlres in the heathen tiuu s.
There is ample evidenco that the
lonely scenes, upon which wo now
uaze with wondering curiosity, wuio
once thickly peopled ; and at that
poi tod the gospel had not reached
Pearl River. Among the objects
of their heathen worship was
tho shark, whoso numbers at
Pearl Klvvr in those days-veru very
abundant. A stretch of steep bank,
fittbupaitof the channel wo have
just sailed past, is. pointed out to
tho tourist where the natives fed the
sharks and sometimes gave thesu
fish human saciillees to appease
their voracity. Whether these int
uitions are uiytuicat or not, uie
writer docs not vouch ; but the sur.
I'linfling.i ai.d remains still visible,
j.-ic a coior of truth to the stones
We continue our voyage, passing
an old butcher shop upon Mr. Camp
bell's estate, and sail between groves
ol algcroba trees supposed to bo
planltd here and thcro by birds and
moie thickly spread by cattle which
eat the indigestible seeds.
The water front heic, so far as
vUiblo from the steamer, is shielded
by blocks of coral stone; and be
hind those tho coral has decayed
into a most fertile soil full of phos
phates. Were this coral soil mixed
with the red lava soil further in
land, and some vegetable manure
added, a more fertile compost could
not be imagined; but lest I digress
wo will continue our voyage up
THE WEST CHANNEL
where there is enough to occupy our
attention for the present. On both
sides of us, and all around here, are
extensive coral-formed plateaus,
level and low say from 10 to 20
feet above the tide. At a period,
nut veiy long ago geologically con
sidered, all this stretch of low coun
try was submerged, and the forma
tion put into shape under water;
but uith the using of the adjoining
laud through volcanic agency all
this stretch of submarine formation
rose with it, evidently about the
same time. These facts aie gather
ed from the appearance and decom
position of tho coral, and the ab
rupt lines of dcmarkatlon at tho
joining of the two formations vol
canic and scdcnienlary or coraline.
The west channel continues wide
and deep as we prooecd. nnd on our
right or east side is the laud of Mr.
C. A. Brown. On the shores wo no
lice an extiaordinary abundance of
periwinkles and other shell-fish. A
kind of native clam is also said to
abound here ; and, a few years ago,
oysters were introduced, but ran out
because they wcic not looked after
sulllciently to protect them frqpi
The foot liills of the Waianae
range arc now apparently about a
milu from whero wc are sailing,
hundreds of fish of diffeicnt kinds
arc jumping around us, an occasional
wild duck rise3 from the vista of
water channel, and finally wc enter
that magnificent inland set called
the "west loch."
