Honry Smith, chief clork of tho
Judiciary Depnrtmont, until his
visit by the last trip of tho steam
er Kinau, had not been in Hilo
sinco he was too young to have
formed a definite impression of
the town's appearance There
fore tho flying trip to windward
on this occasion was a most ngreo
able change for him. Mr. Smith
was Boon at his desk and cordially
gave an account of his brief holi
"Wo loft Honolulu on tho 21st.
The Kinau had a very smooth
passage both ways, with a largo
company of tourists for tho vol
cano. Tho band was on board.
It did not land at any of tho way
ports going, but played on board
whilo tho steamer was anchored at
Lahaina, Mahukona and Laupa
hoohoe. "Wo arrived at Hilo on Wednes
day and the band itnraediatoly
began to play twice a day,
giving morning and evening
concerts at tho courthouse.
On Saturday tho band played at
4 o'clock in tho afternoon, so as
to allow somo of its mombors a
chance to visit tho volcano. On
Monday morning tho last concort
was given and tho baud went on
board tho steamer again. As
originally planned it was to land
at Maalaoa Bay, but a committeo
of a meeting of Lahaina residents
induced tho Wailuku peoplo to
forego tho honor of having tho
first concert on Maui, so as to give
Lahaina a chanco of having any
concert nt all. Tho band was ac
cordingly landed at Lahaina on
Monday, and aftor playing thoro
tho Claudino took it round to Ka-
hulni. It was going to play at
Wailuku, Spreckolsvillo and Paia,
on that side of tho island, twice a
duy each place, and return to Ho
nolulu by tho Olaudine next
"I found Hilo town far advanc
ed in modern appearance nnd im
provements, being informed by
old residents of how groat tho
advance had been, especially in
tho past eighteen months or two
years. New buildings and local
improvements are constantly, be
ing added. They have house oloc
trie lighting now and aro only
waiting for an appropriation by
tho Legislature to have tho Btroets
lighted by electricity tho sarao as
Honolulu. There is an excellent
system of water works. I went up
to the head of the water supply,
threo to five milos from town. Tho
pressuro on tho mainB is bo strong
that thoro is no need of tho fire
engine to throw water.
"All tho sugar mills woro grind
ing and tho fields woro looking
green. Captain Clarke gave all
tho information about names of
plantations passed along tho coast.
Tho mills are running day and
night to overtake tho crop boforo
tho cano becomes over-ripo. Rob
ert Moro at Popeokco saluted tho
boat with tho mill whistlo as wo
passed both ways. The passong
ore woro landed on tho Wninken
side of Hilo, near Cocoanut Isl
and, on account f shoal water for
tho boats on tho town side. Thoro
woro busses to meet tho boat. J.
R. Wilson of tho Volcano Stables
owns tho busses, also all tho hacks
and tho Volcano stages. When in
Hilo I called on Charlie Spencer,
the Bulletin's lato foromnn, who
is busy in. printing tho Tribune.
Ho Bpoko vory favorably of tho
prospoot of tho pionoor papor.
"President Dolo nad loft before
our arrival for Hamakua. Tlio
Lahaina .pooplo oxpeoted to meet
thq Prosidout on tho return of tho
Kinau, and had a &creen on tlio
wharf with tho inscription "Wol
como" on it. They woro much
disappointed. Ho -will como back
by the steamer W. G. Hnll. Ha
waiians at Hilo complained to mo
that thoy did not have an oppor
tunity of meeting tho President,
becnuso ho was shut in by tho
foreigners. Thoy wanto I to show I
mm Mumo nui'iiuon out couki not
get a chanco. It was their inten
tion to givo a luau in his honor.

"I wont half way up through
Olaa, or as far as Fumoaux's
ranch, nearly fourteen miles out.
I saw William Shipman's coffoo
field and it tooks splendid. J. E.
Eldart's field is in the woocIb on
either side of tho road, and
although looking well is not so
attractive as Shipman's. I did
not soo much m tho way of graz
ing land. Hilo is all sugar it is
a sugar district.
"Tho tourists all expressed tho
great onjoymont thoy had ex
perienced at tho Volcano House.
Tho weather was lovely. It did
not rain at all whilo wo wore- at
Hilo. I had as plendid time. I at
tended a littlo luau at Cocoanut isl
and givon by Judge andMrsHnpai.
Judge Austin was busily engaged
in the Circuit Court hearing tho
big case of Josoph Viorra against
tho Bishop of Panopolis and
Emilo Werry, a bill in equity for
specific performance. Viorra
claimed that the Bishop gave
Werry a lease that ho had ongaged
to givo to Viorra. Tho hearing
occupied fivo days. Whatever
side wins in tho Circuit Court,
tho cose is almost certain to bo
appealed to. tho Supremo Court.
Gilbort'F. Littlo appoared for tho
plaiutiff, and Paul Nouraann nnd
F. M. Wakofiold for tho defend
ants. - "

Till; VELOCITY'S CAHKO.
Trouble JteMveeii tlio l'ort Survejor
IIIKl OIiIiipno CoiiIkiic.
A differonco of opinion oxists be
tween tho Port Survoyor and tho
Chiueso consignees of the Velo
city. When tlio bark arrived tho
Port Survoyor offored tho Chiueso
tho privilego of storing all tho
cargo under tho shed at the wharf.
Ho was then to take ton per cent
of each Bhipment or mark to tho
Custom House for examination.
The ton per cent of course to bo
aolectod by himself. The Chinese
demurred to this, claiming that tho
shed was not a proper placo to store
goods under and that they would
o liable to daraago. Tho Port
Survoyor then proceeded to open
ovory package as it camo out of
tho vessel's hold. This did not
suit tho Chinese a littlo bit and
thoy are now deliberating what to
do about it. Survoyor Sanders
has offered to movo tho vessel
over to the Pacifio Mail wharf
and store all the cargo until
ho has selected the 10 per
cent for tho Custom House,
if tho consignees will pay tho
extra expense, but ho refuses to
make any soloctiou until tlio whole
cargo is exposed to view and in
the moantimo continues to open
every package landed on tho
wharf. It is probable tho Chiueso
will agroo to tho surveyor's pro
position to unload the freight at
the Pacific Mail wharf during tho
Captain W. W. Wa'kor, till
latoly commander of tho Bolgie,
arrived at San Francisco rocontly
ou tho Peru. Ho was suspended
by tho Oriontal aud Occidental
Steamship Company for running
his vessel aground at tho ontrauco
of Yokohama harbor, and has re
turned to lay his case boforo tho
company's officials. Viscount
Tamura of Japan also camo over
on tho Peru on his way to outer
tho United States Naval Acadomy
at Annapolis. Ho will sorvo his
four years' cadotship, and, after
graduation, will roturn to his

Ili'liinixli of tho LrmltT anil llic .Ttnn-
n'ier ITIiit.ii I riiitiln...Kcli:uro of
William Aylett, leading cornotist
and treasurer of tho Hawaiian
National Band, whoso roturn from
tho United States was roported in
yesterday's papor, called at tho
Bulletin oflico and made
tho following statement regarding
tho troubles of tho band:
"Our trouble was this. When
wo wont to Cleveland our band
master, Libornio, demanded n
salary of $70 a weok in advance. I
could not boo it at all, because wo
woro not making any money above
baro expenses. I told tho boys
that wo should consider tho mat
ter, as it would mako troublo with
tho manager it wo gave in to Li
bornio. Our contract with Wood
ford tho manager was that if any
members of tho band camo to got
a salary ho would bo paid his
salary of $50 a weok. It would
bo a very hard thing for us if wo
gave Libornio a week's salary, for
then wo should have to pay Wood
"Tho boys would not listen to
mo, but insisted on paying Libor
nio. I would Jiko to have paid
him if wo could afford it, becnuso
ho deserved his salary. I had a
lot of monoy coming to mysolf
and I gavo my bill to Johnny
Wilson ho was tho Bocrotary
and asked him to go into tho car
and have everything settled. Aftor
playing that night Libornio de
manded his $70, but Wilson told
him to go down to tho car and we
would sottlo tho matter there. All
tho boys refused to go to tho car,
and wont to the hotel with Libor
nio. "Thoy camo down to the car at
halfpast eleven. Johnny Wilson
was fixing up his monoy. Libor
nio nccused him of stealing tho
monoy. Ho denied the charge and
said tho monoy was all thore. Li
bornio sprang at Wilson and
grabbed him by tho neck, but Wil
son shoved him off. Thou the
boys jumped on Wilson aud throw
him out of tho car. I told Wilson
to see mo in thoinorning, and wo
would settle affairs, and ho said
"1 know Johnny was going to
telegraph next morning to Mrs.
McMnhon of Chicago, tho lady
who owned tho car, to stop the
car, on account of tho way ho had
been abused. Boforo seven o'clock
in tho morning Johnny Wilson
camo down to tho car with a doputy
sheriff and two policemen, and
took possession of the car. I was
willing to givo Libornio $24 n
weok. Wilson told tho boys if
thoy camo to our terms ho would
roloaBG everything. Tho boys thon
wanted to jump on mo. They
threatened to take tho matter into
"I loft boforo the case camo up
in court, but I recoived lottors
from my brother James and Wil
son, saying that Wilson gained
tho caso. I think Mr. Gillig helped
to settle for the car,and my brother
James has tho instruments. The
boys wont on to Mnssillon, Ohio,
whore thoy got strauded."
It has been learned that kind
frionds in Ohio loaned tho boys
instruments, besides aiding them
financially, and thoy continued
giving concerts for a whilo, but
at latest accounts thoy woro work
ing thoir wny home.
Tho Fat ono Sir, I want to
know what you moan by saying I
could take my collar off over my
head without unbuttoning it. Tho
Thin One It was a thoughtless
statomont on my part, mado on
tho spur of tho moment, and I nm
sorry I snid it. "Vory well; if
you are sorry, of course " Yes,
I forgot the si.f of your oars."
