ccedlnjtaorthe Historical Haeleljr.
Compared with the last previ
ous meeting, when less than a
dozen members attended, yester
day evening's session of tho Ha
waiian Historical Society had a
large attendance.' Yet about fifty
out of a membership running into
tho hundreds is not a good attend
anco. Tho hall was many sizes
too large for tho meeting, the con
sequence being that some of the
audience had, for part of the time,
only echo for thoir edification.
Job. 8. Emerson, vice president,
was in the chair, and, in tho ab
sence of Dr. Hyde,8ecretary, Thos.
R. MoBsmau, treasurer, attended
to the clerical duties.
Mods. Louis Vossion, French
Commissioner, Mr. Harold M.
Bewail, United States Minister;
Messrs. W. W. Goodale of Ono-
mea and J. O. Senrle of Hilea,
Hawaii, were elected as active
Rev. F. W. Damon read the first
paper. Its author was the late
Warren Goodale, who was sud
denly cut down in Honolulu a
few months ago. The paper ends
abruptly in the midst of a narra
tion of events of Honolulu in the
olden time, which, besides being
of intrinsically engrossing inter
est, is written in the easy style of
whioh Mr. Goodale was master.
Honolulu in the forties and
early fifties is graphically de
scribed, and, accompanying the
reading, there were displayed
against the front of the platform
six large plates of views. These
were Tithogrophedby BurgesB of
Sira'Franoisoo ' from ak'etohW node
by Paul Emmet, an artist who
visited Honolulu in the early
fifties. Several historic buildings
are shown, a fow of whioh aro
standing today. The author of
the paper wondered there were no
sketches of the town east of
Punchbowl street, mentioning as
one structure that deserved notice
the American hospital that stood
at Beretnnia and Funohbowl
streets. Some of the sketches
were faithful birdseyo views, hav
ing been taken from the mastheads
of vessels in the harbor.
Mr. Goodale demurred to any
oharge of egotism against his
claim among tho living of superior
knowledge of the Honolulu of
that day, excepting only in certain
cases Mesara. James I. Dowsett,
Henry M. Whitney and Joseph
O. Garter.. At the time of the
destruction of the fort and govern
or's house by the French naval
landing party, he was marshal
and jailor and custodian of the
stronghold. The excitement of
that timn, when it was momen
tarily oxpected the French ship
would bombard the town, was de
scribed so vividly that one wae in
sympathy taken back to the very
scene. Mr. O. R. Bishop, then
collector general, is seen locking
up the custom houso, putting the
key in his pooket, and walking up
to headquarters to join in the
anxious consultation of high func
tionaries. Relief came from Uncle
Sam. Tho U. S. 8. Puissivant ar-
from the China station,
of her men still suffering
dysentery that had laid a
number of their comrades
in oriental graves, a Duuaing
was tendered by the Government
to the commander for a hospital.
This being in the direct line of
fire of the French guns beaded
for the town's doom gave the
American captain good pretext
for ucliou. Ho swung hiu vessel
athwart the deadly line and sent
tho Frenchman notice that if he
fired a shot his ship would be
blown to tho bottom. Tho rosult
was that tho French commander
took it out in lauding to demolish
Professor W. D. Alexander
then read a paper on early annex
ation movements. Ho had pre
pared it mainly in 1889, adding
fresh matter from his researches
later. As both the papers were
ordered, by vote of the meeting, to
be published as part of the
records, an attempt to give any
thing like a complete summary
from the reading is unnecessary
and would result unsatisfactorily
owing to space limitations. Pro
fessor Alexander's paper related
the events connected with the
provisional cession of the islands
to the United States, under stress
of the harassing conduct of the

TODAY BOAT RACK.
The Philadelphia'! Grew Wlna by Mix.
The race between six - oarod
cutters of the United States ves
sels Philadelphia and Marion
came off this morning but ended
somewhat differently to what was
There have been several attempts
to get off the race before which
have failed from various causes
and led to considerable ill-feeling
between the two crews. A race
was nnauy arranged tor tu
morning and it was for blood and
all the money the crews of both
ships could raise.
Tb,e course was from a starting
point near the flagship around
the bell buoy and return, about
four miles. Ofiicors of the war
ships acted bb judges and starters.
At the start the Philadelphias
took a slight lead but the Marions
caught them before they were half
way to the spar buoy and went to
the front, maintaining a good lead
to tho bell buoy. Rounding this
and on the homestretch they were

commencing to tell on them and
the Hagsnip crew was keeping
too close to them for comfort.
The Philadelphia's men had
evidently taken things easy while
sizing up their opponents, for on
reaching the spar buoy they put
on a tremendous spurt, forged
rapidly ahead and when the pistol
went off which announced they
had crossed the winning line they
were some sixteen lengths ahead.
The time wna given at 35 minutes
50 seconds, which is considered
It is said some $4000 was put
up on tho race by tho two crews.
As the Philadelphia's crew passod
tho Marions at tho spar buoy and
went ahead so fast as to assure
them the race tho big airen and
other whistles on the flagship
were turned loose and from all
.parts of tho cruiser 'horns and
other instruments or torture were
brought forth to still further en

to refresh theuiBolvos the winning
crow wore fairly carried up.jthe
