Anybody who wanted a smoother
sea thun was the Eaiwi obannol,
whun tho Board of Health expe
dition crossed it Thursday night
ought to confino his voyagings
to tho surface of Honolulu harbor.
The yachtlike steamer Iwalam, of
tho Inter-Island Steam Naviga
tion Company, meandered across
to Kalaupapa at half speed, as,
leaving port at 10 o'clock, it was not
desired to reaoh the destination
before daylight. Diamond Head
was not cleared before the pas
sengers were invited to the saloon,
where a .substantial supper was
spread, which bat few declined to
partake of. Then they scattered
about the decks in groups and on
joyed cigars and wellspun yarns
and tales of travel. Tho soft night
air soon coaxed a general somno
lent mood, however, and, some in
state rooms and some on mattress
es bestrewn upon the decks, all
were shortly in tho land of
dreamB. Those who lay in the
cool open undoubtedly had tho
most refreshing slumber. Only
one case of seasickness was re
ported in the morning,,1 and tho
victim was a member of tbo Board
of Health. Strangest of all, it
was David Eeliipio, whose ances
tors spent half their lives on the
heaving ocean's breast, gaily
grasping the paddle and the spear.
He is supposed to have began to
grow squeamish when the motion
was recorded at the Board fixing
the date of the expedition.
As the landing was slowly ap
proached about sunrise, a large
school of sharks was seon on the
starboard quarter, in the slack
water at the base of the mountain.
They were big fellows, but there
Was no inspector of schools on
board, nor anybody who desired
to make a closer investigation.
At Kalaupapa thero is the sub
limest conjunction of mountain
and ocean to be soen in this
group. The face of the precipice
rises almost perpendicularly from
the snrf line until its forest
crowned battlements oleave the
sky at an elevation of perhaps
1500 to 2000 feet. Mr. Reynolds
gratified those who did not know
the place by pointing out the trail
that runs zigsag from the lofty
verge to the bottom. From the
sea it seems impossible, but while
thex eye was being di rooted to
streaks of the way and to a grove
of knkui trees about throe-fifths
of the way np, it fell upon a mov
ing object attending a little be
low tho giove mentioned. It
might have been taken 'for the
white plumage of an albatross
sweeping upward against the dark
background, bat it moved not fast
enough for that and a little too
fast for a pedestrian. "Excelsior 1"
was not heard ringing from the
mountain faoe, but it came into
the ear of the mind. Tho object
proved to bo a white shirted
traveler on horseback. Speaking
of sound, thore is a grand echo in
the vast bulwarks of Eamapapa.
It was noticed in a clear and
sonorous reply to tho Iwalani's
whistle calling for tho party's re
turn in the afternoon.
TIIE DANGEROU8 TRIAL.
Ooming back to that mountain
trail over the pali, abundant in
stances prove it almost fully as
dangerous as it looks. One's
nerves have need to bo under
healthy control to tempt the dang
erous way. An esteemed citizen
who is no more, when a formor
, Board of Health expedition had
to cross the island owing to tho
impassable surf on the occasion,
needed a man on each side of him
to bo able to walk in tho proces
sion. The lato Kato Fiold, on tho
same occasion, evinced not the
slightest failure of nerve. Two or
threo yenrs ago Dr. Oliver, phyni
cian at the Settlement, had his
horse lose his footing.' The ani
mal tumbled down the moun
tain to a shapeloss mass, while tho

There was a pretty heavy Burf
breaking on the rooky landing
this morning, bat a couple of
boats put the passengers safely
ashore, making several hips each.
An oar snapped in two with one
boatload, but the experienced na
tive Bailors prevented a casualty.
Captain Gregory and officers never
for a moment relaxed tho koenest
vigilance against mishap until
every man and woman stood high
and dry at tho depot. It wrb an
interesting sight to see tho boats
boing maneuvered on top of the
rollers till a big ouo would break,
and then with a horoulean spurt
of oars being shot into a littlo
pocket of swirling water beaido
the Blippery landing platform of

THE BIBHOr HOME.
On coming ashore, the visitors
were directed to the reception
house,two hundred yards from tho
landing. When all had assem
bled there and rested a while, the
day's tour of inspection began.
The Bishop Home for Girls, estab
lished by Hon. O. E. Bishop, was
first visited. It contains a school
house, a chapel, and fourteen
cottages 20x30 feet in size, besides
a house for the Sisters in charge.
Thore are threo rooms in tho
schoolhouse, oponing ono into
another lengthwise of the build
ing. The room at one end con
tains eix sewing machines, which
the girls ure taught to operate In
the room at the opposite end are a
piano and a melodeon. Daring
tho visit Prof.Berger gave a piano
recital of national and sentimontal
airs, which was intensely enjoyed
by the girls who swarmed around.
To bear their merry laughter one

Each cottage has twelve beds
and a dressing and wardrobo
room. Neat iron hospital beds,
covered, with snowy white bed
ding, and floors of speokless clean
liness, together with ourtainB on
the windows and pictures on the
walls, give an aspect of comfort
and oheeriness to the interiors
which is indeed homelike. Help
less women with no relatives to
live with, or attendants to take
caro of them, share the comforts
of the Bishop Home with the un
fortunate girls. Thero aro 121 in
mates at present, more than half
of them girls.
There aro beautiful gardens
about all of the houses. The pa
paia seems to be the most numer
ous among fruit trees growing in
the sandy soil, but the strawberry
guavu is also doing woll and other
speoies are coming along with
much promise. Flowers of many
kinds aro thriving oven bettor than
in Honolulu, especially in the caso
of roses. The Japanese beetle
has thus far been kept out, but a
blight has made its appearance
which may do harm.
