Enrron Bulletin: Is it not
about time that some niovo was
mado looking to tho building of a
drydock in this harbor of suffi
cient size to accommodate tho
largest oconn stenmors? Tho time
is coming and that rapidly when
such accommodation for our
rapidly increasing cominorco will
bo a nocossity.
With a capacious drydock in
thiB harbor Honolulu would be
come a ooutral repair shop for all
tho Pacific Ocean, not only for
merchant vessels and mail steam
ers but for warships of all nations.
Think of tho business that would
bo brought to thiB port by a dock
of this kind and of tho army of
mechanics who would bo required
to do tho work. Does not tho
project give somo of our sugar
capitalists a chanco to invest somo
of thoir surplus wealth, with or
without Government assistance?

Applied ecieuco has beeu res
ponsible for so many wonders
during tho.past five or six decades
that tho most conservative) think
ers of today would hesitate lo
limit its .potentiality. Fifty years
ago this very day tho plauot Kop
tune was discovered by puroly
scientific reasoning and this
achievement was so vast and far
reaching that tho wonders of ap
plied mechanics, railways, steam
ships, the ocean cable, electric
railways, the tolophono, etc., pale
boforo it. Tho miracle- of yestor
day, however, becomes tho com
monplace of today and wo of the
present-ago an nearly as sceptical
as our fathers wore in face of the
now and strange. It is true 'that
wo do not organizo to destroy tho
thing wo do not understand as
they did, neither do the more en
lightened of ub prophesy evil
from innovation, although we
have an object lesson in this
phase of fooling in the present at
titude of somo of our farmers
towards the electric railway to
Bout do PIlo; nevertheless, we
aro chary of encouragement and
nothing butpincticnl demoiislra
tiou will convince the majority of
even thiB generation. This scep
ticism has boon tho bano of nil
inventors, Stephenson, Arkwright,
Pulton, "Watts, and many more,
and tho same dragon has horeto
ioro obstructed tho progress of
Mr. F. A. Jvnapp. To the general
public tho unmo of Mr. Knapp
will not be familiar, although it is
already well known to naval
architects and men of science, but
if the invention for which the
gouius of Mr. Knapp is responsi
ble passos from the theoretic to
tho practical stnge, Mr. Knapp's
name will rank amongst tho
greatest of his time.
For Mr. Knapp proposes to an
nihilate tho terrors of tho sea by
means of n ship that shall bo uu
sinkable, that ehall overcome ro
sistauce to the waves and upon
wIiobo steadfast deck seasickness
shall bo banned nnd barred. M.
Buzin lloated a roller ship upon
the Seine tho other day for which
ho claims great possibilities, but
according to the sketches that
havo come to hand, it would seem
tint a rude sea might easily play
the mischief with the projecting
rollers. In Mr. Knapp's inven
tion there are no such possibili
ties for disaster, although wo do
not say thoro may not bo others;
that, of course, remaiiis to bo
proved; Mr. Knapp's invention,
however, is on tho lines of nearly
all tho innovations of modern
times, that is, from tho rectilinear
to tho curvilinear. Mr. Knapp
contends tlmt ho can maintain up
on his boat threo times tho speed
of tho "Campania" at one-third of
tho cost. Tho "Campania" con
sumes 110,000 horse-power for a
spoed of '20 knots, nnd tho "St.
Louis 20,000 horso-power for nino
toon knots, so that it takes 10,000
horse-power to got the last knot.
Mr. Knapp says that his boat can
overcome this rosistaiico nud will
cross tho ocean at a spoed of sixty
knots an hour. Let us soo how
this will workout. Starting from a
point on tho Labrador coast to Gal
way in Irejaud,a little under 1700
miles, tho joumoy will bo nccom
plished in a little over a day. It
is proposed to connect with a rail
way running along the north
shore oi tho St. Lawrence, and it
easily will bo soon that by means
of tho two all perishable goods,
such as butter, choose, eggs, etc.,
may; bedolivored over on tho oth

Au imposing assembly gathered
at Y. M. C. A. hall yesterday
evening for tho celebration of tho
lloth annivorbary of tho battle of

General Cornwallis. Besides
membors of tho Hawaiian Chap
ter of tho Society of Sons of tho
American Revolution, under
whoso auBpices tho celebratiou
was held, and thoir families- there
were pr-Bont many invited guests,
including President Dolo, Minis

and othor well-known citizens.
Boforo tho opening a reception
was hold at the head of tho stairs
by Chief Justico and Mrs. Judd,
Mr. and Mrs. L. A. Thurston, Mr.
Farringtou nud others.
Flanking tho spoakor's desk,
which was draped with tho Amer

oth(r plants- A swinging black
board to tho right of the desk
bore a chalk map of territory
where tho closing campaigns of
tho Ilevolutiou woro enacted. At
twenty minutes past oight o'clock
Chief Justico Judd, Vico Prosi
dent of the Society, wont upon tho
platform accompanied by llev. D.
P. Biruio nud Capt. Nathan Ap
pleton, one of tho Vico Presidents
of tho Massachusetts Socioty. Tho
President of tho local Socioty is
Potor Cushman Jones, absont
temporarily in tho United States.
Mr. Birnio opened tho proceed
ings with a fervont patriotic invo
cation. Secretary John Uffiuger called
tho roll, when all but oight mem
bers living in Honolulu were
found to bo present. At the name
of Wan on Goodulo, a rosidont of
Waimea, Hawaii, a letter of regret
from that gentleman was road by
Lorriu A. Thurston, which wns
highly interesting. It described
tho Inst Cornwallis celebration
tho writer had attended, that be
ing at Marlboro, Massachusetts,
about Bixty years ago. Thoro was
a sham battle between forces
dressed to represent tho Contin
outnls on tho one sido nud tho in
vading British on tho other.
Young Goodale, with the aid of
Asa G. Thurston, finished up his
grandfather's revolutionary mus
ket by charging it heavily with
powdor and au iron bolt, then
firing it off by means of a slow
match while tho two youngstors
took rofugo behind tho barn. A
brief note of regret was also road
from Luthor Soveranco of Hilo.
Chief Justico Judd delivered
tho historical speech of tho oven
iug. With the aid of tho mnp ho
gave a graphic description of tho
successful campaigns of Washing

Parliament ball oobood with the
speeches of Burke, Fox and Pitt,

President Dolo kiudly accorded
a Bulletin roprosontativo a few
minutes of his valuablo time this
morning during which ho told of
his trip to Hawaii and tho results
which might bo cxpoctod from it
in the near future in relation to
the opening of new lands for set
tlement. Whilo the President's
trip was in the nature of a vaca
tion it will bo seen that he put in
his time to good advantage. In
speaking of his trip ho said:
"Among tho places I visited
was Poanahulu, tho loaso of
which has juBt expired. This is
in the extreme north end of Kona
in a lava district. About seven
or eight miles from the
sea, however, there is a veritablo
oasi of 1000 to 1500 acres which
is free from timber and covered
with cactus. Tho soil of this
sheltered spot is particularly fer
tile Thoro aro a number of na
tivos living in the vicinity who
aro particularly desirous of ac
quiring Bomo of this land. Since
my return I havo recommended
to the Executive Council that Hub
land be divided into small home
stead lots and ' thrown open to
Bottlcmout. Tho Cabinet havo
agreed to this aud tho necessary
orders will bo given to tho Lund
Commissioner to go ahead.
"I iiIbo visited Awiui, at tho ex
treme oast end of Kohnla, which
is virtually out of the world, for
no tolophono or mail routes ex
tend to it. Hero I stayed several
days and was very hospitably
entertained by tho rosidonts. A
number of Kohnln peoplo pur
chased about five or six hundred
acres of lnnd at this plnco from
Dr. Wight aud havo a lino planta
tion of coffeo and fruit trees
The govommont land at Awiui
runs mnulca of this plantation and
extends up the slop" of Maunalon.
Tho lower end of it has an elovn
tiou of about 1G00 feet and from
that to the U000 feot olovation fur
nishes many thousands of acres
of fine coffee land. This fertile
district is heavily woodod and is
not cut up by ravines to any ox
tout. In my opinion it is ideal
coffee linld. 1 have no idea of tho
acrongo suitable for coffeo but
thoro aro several miles botweeu
tho two elevations mentioned.
Thoro nro a number of people who
havo homes aud aro engaged in
business at and around Kohala
who aro desirous of obtaining
holdings in thiB tract. They are
principally Portuguese and others
who already havo homos but wish
to acquire this land for tho pur
pose of gotting it opened up nud
devoloped and at tho samo timo
nttondiug to thoir othor business in
Kohnln. I havo considered their re
quost aud boliovo it should bo
grauted and have so notified tho
Executive Council. In this in
stance I have recommended tint
the lands bo thrown open undor
what iB called the "Kaumana"
systom under which certain aroas
may bo acquired upon condition
of cortnin improvements being
mndo on the laud nud a certain
amount of annual cultivation done,
possession being givon at ouco.
Under this system tho lnnd will
bo paid for in instalments nnd
upon full payment aud satisfac
tory proof of tho required im
provements being mado a govom
mont patent will bo granted.
There was somo opposition mado
by tho Kohala plantors to tho
opening up of this tract, tho claim
being mado that the donudation
of the forest in preparing tho
land for coffeo would affect tho
rainfall at Kohala. This danger,
however, seemed to mo to bo so
remote as to bo hardly considered.
