Thomas W. Rawlins did not
have a successful first voyage in
hia marine purchase, tho sehoonor
"Mia, i.; 7hich La embarked for
Hilo on -tho 2nd inst. Tho vessel
was formerly tho Henrietta and
was 9old at auction under con
demnation for opium smuggling.
Mr. Rawlins bought her for use
in connection with tho soap man
ufactory ho is going to start at
It appears tho Ada made poor
progress on tho voyngo for Hilo,
so that when Bho arrived off Ha
kalau,ififteon milos from Hilo, tho
supply of water had bocomo ex
hausted, and thoro was a scarcity
of food in tho stores. J. F. Hardy,
who Is .associated with Mr. Baw
lins in tho ownership, started for
shore in a" boat, taking with him
tho mate, a Frenchman named
Albonio, and two sailors, Bill TJlu
and Charles Bolabola. Tho boat
was swamped at tho mouth of Ha
kalau gulch, and Albonio was
drowned, in tho breakers, tho
other threo men reaching shore
with tho greatest difficulty.
As tho lost iboat was tho only
one tho schooner had, Mr. Baw
lins was in a nasty predicament.
Besides being loft practically
without a crow, .tho weather was
bad for tho little vessel. Iu this
situation tho Ada was sighted by
tho steamor Kinau, and Pursor
Beckley of that vessel tolls tho
whole story for tho readers of tho
Bulletin. Having given the
foregoing facts of .tho schooner's
distress no proceeded:
"Tho men who escaped tele
phoned to Hilo to inquire if any
steamer was thero which would go
to tho Ada assistance. The steam
er Hawaii was dispatched from
Hilo at 3 a.m. on tho 12th, but
tho weather was very thick and
sue could not una the schooner.
"Tho Kinau left Hilo at 7:30 a.
m. on the 12th. Before wo camo
toanchor at Laupahoohoo, twolvo
miles from Hilo, I raised the
schooner five miles off shore to
tho northward. Captain Clarko
headed tho Kinau for tho schoon
er, and I .boarded her, taking a
barrel of water and somo provi
sions aboard. Besides Mr. Baw
lins thoro were on tho schooner
tho captain, J. W. Burt, and two
passengers, W. Roberts and S. H.
Webb, also ono horse and ono
dog. Tho vessel loft Honolulu
with thirty-fivo gallons of water.
"Mr. Rawlins advised mo to
take him homo. Ho was 6ur
prispd to seo mo. In answer to
his question as to whore I had
got the news of his vessol, I told
him I had received a mossago
from Hakalau, stating that tho
boat had boon lost and Albonio
drowned. Tho schooner was five
miles off, between Laupahoehoo
and Houohinu. I told Capt. Burt
and Mr. Bawlins that wo had two
steamers on tho coast, and they
woro instructed to search for tho
schooner. Tho Hawaii was ready
to tako hor into Hilo, but hud not
been ablo to find her. After
giving them wator wo wont into
"Proceeding on our way homo
wo mot tho steamer Kilauea Hon
at Ookala landing freight, so I
gave inbtructions, as a director of
tho company, to Captain Freeman
to give tho distressed schooner
all needed assistance, to the ox
tont of towing hor into Hilo if
necessary. At Muhukona I re
ceived a message that tho Kilau

Tho action of Mr. Beckley in
tho mattor, with tho assistance of
Captains Clarko and Freeman,
is highly creditable to tho Wildor
Steamship Company. All tho
moro bo, as, oven if tho vessol was
a rich prize for salvage, nothing
more could bnvo beon done. Tho
motive in rendering tho effective

Howard Hitchcock, tho Hawaiian-born
painter, has alone
what would make an exhibition in
thomsolves of some of tho grand
est scones in those islands. His
sketch of tho recent eruntion in
JVIokuawooweo, tho summit crater
of Mauua Loaj may b'e regarded
as almost priceless, although tho
Artist sots quite a modest value
upon it in tho catalogue. It iB an
artistic item in tho historv of our
volcanic region, tho subject of
which has been seen by less than
two-score pairs of mortal J eyes.
.Nobody will ovor again sed iden
tical phenomena, for, although
ono eruption only diffors from
another in glory, it ' differs
emphatically in form. Viows
of contemporary volcanic phe
nomena in tho crater- of Kilau
ea, together with comparatively
pormanont and very striking
scenery about that place of un
canny marvels, by tho same artist
are of tho greatest possible inter
est. Mr. Hitchcock has treated
them with fine artistic conception
and execution, as ho has dona
many loss sublime but transcend
ency beautiful landscapes.
"On tho Uvas Jtivor," is a hap
py offort of Miss M. C. Bockwith,
the water effects aud wooded vista

Senator Wright wanted tho law

At half-past eight this morn
ing a strong current, not down
in tho tide tables, entered
tho harbor. It mado a procession
of waves, somo observers counting
as many as soveuteon, which
moved up tho harbor. Tho small
boats in tho way woro swung
round and mado to rook in lively
motion. Nuuanu stream was mot
by; tho current and its surface
raised somowhat by tho backed
up water. Somobody says that
tho old hulk of tho bark
Sumatra was driven fourteen
feet from its positiou in
tho mud. TIub, however, is taken
as a yarn for tho m'arinos. Possi

caused by a volcauio eruption on
