Bob English has been sick since his return from Hilo. having perhaps found tho climate of Hilo too dam) for him. Captain Pcdcrsen of tho steamer Mikahala, has been placed in com mand of the now steamer Ilanalei. It is probable that Captain Mosher will take the Mikahala and Captain Grceno the Keauhoa. The steamer America experienced a very rough trip from Ivahului to Hilo, the water being so deep on the forward deck at limes that the sailors had to swim. Pilot Bob English was carried to Hilo on the America, returning on the Kinau Much anxiety is being felt for tho Olymp'm. Heretofore, she has made the run in fifteen days, but us the time that has elapsed since she left is twice that period, and as she has not been sighted anywhere on her course, the gravest fears arc enter tained for tho safety of she overdue bark. San Francisco, March 5. An im portant piece of testimony was given yesterday by Freight Clerk George Engleharkt of the wrecked steamer Rio do Janeiro in the Inquiry now being held by Captains Bolles and Bulger, Federal inspectors of hulls and boilers. It was, in effect, that tho niglit before the' accident Captain Ward was afraid to enter the port in the fog, and said that Pilot Jordan advised the move, but he himself would stay outside a week before he would attempt it. Hardly less important was a frank admission by Chief Engineer P. II. Herlihy that he had been remiss in not beiug at his post while the ship was entering the harbor. Third Officer C. J. Holland of the Rio Janeiro, reported drowned, escaped in a boat with seven of the Chinese crow. He says that Captain Ward was carrying Mrs. V.'ildniau to one of tho boats when tho steamer went down. Among other effects picked up by the fisher men was tho box containing Captain Ward's papers. The licenses of Capt. Ward, First Officer Johnson and Second Officer Coghlan were found floating in the bay near Alcatraz and picked up by Capt. Lundquist of the steamer Acme. Thopuiscr's list of passengers was also found. Vessels in Port--KaIuilui Am. Schr. Compeer, Larson, from Port Townsend, lumber. Am. Ship Charmer. John Slater, from Ladysmith, B. (2 coal. Am.
