Adams and Icarus.
The British sloop of war Icarus and
the United States training ship Adam3
entered the harbor yesterday and
dropped anchor in naval row. It was
not expected that the Adams would
arrive here to stay until the 20th, as
the captain had written to friends to
expect him then. The Icarus Is here
from Hilo and is on a trip to the Pacific
Islands, and not as reported n
several local papers and the Hilo journals,
on the way to Panama to punish
the Colombian government for taking
a British steamer for its own use.
The Adams will remain here until
after the holidays. Monday on arrival
off the harbor she anchored and sent
ashore for her mail, of which a great
deal had accumulated at the postoffioe.
She left anchorage yesterday morning
and steamed about fifteen miles
from shore to have practise with the
great guns after which she returned
and came in. Since the Adams was
last here she has been thoroughly
overhauled and is virtually a new vessel.
Her crew is composed mostly
of boys on a training cruise. The
youngsters will be given shore liberty
while here and have an opportunity
of visiting the points of interests on
The Icarus is a bark rigged vessel
and why s,he should be callori a sloop
of war Is a question too much for the
wise ones on the water front. She
is a trim looking vessel of the old
style and carries a crew of 130 men
all told. She has auxiliary steam
power and is of almost a thousand
tons register. The officers of the
Icarus are Commander J. F. S. Know-

K not arrive during the day-?
T Hght hours of yesterday
3 was a great disappoint
ment to many here anxiously
awaiting the cow
ing of tne palatial new
vessel. The only reason advanced for
her delay is that sho was held in San
Francieco awaiting the Curopean mail
which at this time of year is liable
to be delayed In crossing the Atlantic
anil again in crossing the Rocky
mountain. The present winter ha3
- been a severe one and it Is not at all
unlikely that the steamer has been
delayed on acocunt of the mail.
Two years ago the steamer Moana
was haki in San Francisco for twi
days as the mall was stalled somewhere
up in the mountains by the
snow. In al! likelihood this has been
the cause of the Sierra's delay. All
day long yesterday the wharfs were
thronged with people who were looking
for the new boat and it is safe to
saythat she will meet with a very cordial
welcome. Her advent will be the
beginning of a new era in the shipping
history of the Islands and her coming
'-will be the consummation of the promise
which the Oceanic Company has
made tliat in future the vessels of its
lino will bo superior to many and
by none of the many passen
gor steamers plying between the cast
and west on the Pacific, and' calling al
this port. Importers too will welcome
the new boat for her coming, and
the early nrrival of her sisters will
.mean increased facilities for the carrying
of merchandise. With the Increased
speed, greater carrying capacity
and superior passenger accommodations
there will be hardly anything
left to be desired other tnan the service
of the company under the
made by Its new schedule.
Signaling at Night.
The weather bureau h?s concluded
the scries of experiments with signal
lights which it has been conducting
in the tower of the
building In 'Washington, D. O.
The weather mon, under Prof. Charles
Marvin, the chief of the instrument division,
have been hard at work to
perfect a system of signaling out to
sea. They want to warn sailormen of
impending storms, and the only way
to do it of nights is by means of beacon
lamps. Electricity is used wherever
it can be had, but at many points
on the coast It cannot be secured. In
such cases oil mutt be used. In the
pabt there has been much trouble In
getting oil lamps of sufficient power
to reach, fur out to sen. Lately Mr.
Marvin has been experimenting with
a number of new models. In order to
test their practical merits they were
placed In tho tower of the postal building.
The experiments showed that
lamps fitted with American pressed
glass lenses were almost as good as
those with French lenses costing five
times as much. The Yankee type,
therefore, will be adopted.
Having settled upon a good oil lantern,
the weather people will soon establish
a system of beacon lights,
stretching along the Atlantic coast
and the great lakes, like street lamps
on a city thoroughfare. ,
During the past summer sixty new
stool towers have been erected along
tho coast, and these will be nearly doubled
In number. From each tower,
which Is situated on the loftiest point
along the shore, the wenther bureau
people at night will send a signal out
to sea. showing what sort of weather
the sailors may expect. The beacons
will give warning of approaching
storms and advise the captains when
to seek a friendly harbor. The service
will be especially valuable to the
small coasting craft that cannot weather
heavy storms. Each tower will
be cared for by- an agent of the bureau,
who -will receive telegraphic Instructions
from the nearest weather
Tho service will be in addition to
the smaller system already maintained
in many ports, where advice of impending
weather is given by means of
signals. The now xnethon of signaling
from the lofty steol towers will far
surpass all that has heretofore been
done. As each beacon will be visible
about twelve miles in any direction,
the lights from 100 of them which is
the proposed number, would give a
continuous series of warnings visible
for nearly ",500 miles along, the sea-coast.
Captain Hector Friis. assistant harbormaster
at this port, has been appointed
representative for the American
Bureau of Shippir; for the Territory
of Hawaii His many friends are
glad of the appointment and as he has !
been intimately acquainted with the j
shipping of these, islands and of the ,
Pacific coast in general for many 1
years, he -will undoubtedly bo able to j
render valuable service to the bureau.
The American Bureau of Shipping was
organized many years on the same
lines "as the Lloyds' Register and Bureau
Veritas, the former dealing until
late years with British shipping matters
almost exclusively and the latter
being a French concern and having its
main usefulness in Europe. Both -n
later years have given much more attention
to American shipping however.
The American Bureau of Shipping
was formed primarily for the
American maritime world and as it
grew in age it grew in favor, and now
ranks with the other two records. The
work has the official approval of Underwriters
throughout the world and
is universally recognized as a standard
classification and register of shipping.
