The battleship Oregon is not
likely to bo seen iu this harbor
before July if sho comes at all,
for on May 20 sho was at Seattle.
After remaining there a fow dayB
sho was to go to Fort Augolos for
target practise Daring this
month she will reci-ivo either at
Astoria or Portland tho silver
Borvico which is to bo presonted
to her in tho name' of the State
from which she derives her name.
Following this a strong effort will
bo mado to have tho vessel return
to Seattlo and participate in tho
fourth of July exercises.
A special dispatch to the Gall
on May 20 from its Washington
correspondent states that Comrao
doro Howison, formerly stationed
at Mare Island, and lately in
command of the Oregon, will in
all probability bo sout to Hono
lulu to take charge of the Pacific
station instead of Admiral Miller,
who was at first stated for this
post. It is believed that Miller
cannot get back from the Queen's
jubilee in time for the assign
ment. Gommodoro Dewey is
anxious for tho assignment, but
Howison will get it, unless there
is a change in tho program.
O. S. "Wight, president and
managor of the Wilder Steamship
Company, and W. A. Johnson,
superintending engineer of the
sanio company, are at tno Ucci
dental, says a late Call.
Mr. Wight lias come to order a
now steel steamship, in size tho
same as tho Heloue, lately built
by tho Union Iron Works. She
is to be 185 feet long, 30 feet wide,
and 15 feet deep, and will cost
from S75.000 to 8100,000, so Mr.
Wight says. Tho steamer is to
run betweon tho islands, taking
the place of tho lately lost Liko
like. Mr, Wight speaks enthusias
tically of tho opportunities for
making money iu Hawaii in
coffee-growing, and ho says any
young man with a capital of
$3000 and upward can soon estab
lish himself on a prosperous
basis. Land can bo bought for
about S7 an acre. "Fortunes will
be made out of coffee in the noxt
few years," he said. "Young men
of energy and a little money can
do well in raising coffee in Ha
waii. Labor is cheap, and a man
can soon get a start."
The steamship Alameda which
sailed yesterday afternoon had a
largo general cargo for tho Colo
nics. Among it aro largo con
signments of canned goods, bicy
cles, loatuor, broom corn and
paper, also a small kinotoscopo,
the property of Ohief Engineer
Little.. Tho lattor is a wonderful
machine, and shows tho knockout
blow in tho Corbett Fitzsimmons
fight to perfection, to which fact
Marino Superintendent Tabrott of
tho Risdon Irou Works will bear
Tabrett was curious and wanted
to oxamiuo tho machine "Koep
it a short distance away from
your eye, and when you got tho
right focus press tho button,"
said Little, as innocently as possi
ble; Tabott prossed tho button,
and tho next instant a band sprang
out of the box and struck him in
tho eye. It was a knock-out blow
and no mistake, as tho well known
engineer has ono of his optics in
mourning as ovidonce. Littlo is
still laughing ovor tho joke, and
Tabrett woll, ho has got ovor his
chagrin and is laughing himself.
