A fi;ikm brought an alligator pear into the
sanctum on Tuesday, and remarked, as he laid it on
the table, that the Hilo crop was remarkably poor
this year as regards size. This may lie so; but we
are inclined to lielieve that what is lacking in
quantity is made up in quality. We have tasted
the specimen left with us as a matter of course; for
it is a well-known fact that conscientious editors
and druggists always taste everything brought into
their offices, and we think that the "Old Brown
Windsor" flavor predominates over the common
"Yellow liar" soapy taste and texture of the fruit
in ordinary years. Then, too, -.he leathery skin is
thicker, and the inedible nut larger in proportion
to the soft portion lying between the two. than
usual: and so, considering all these points of excel
lence, we can hardly say that we agree with our
friend in pronouncing this year's crop inferior.

Yestkkdav morning, bv appointment, their Ex

Affairs, and J. E. Bush, Minister of the Interior,
paid an official visit on board the U. S. S. Alaska.
The Alaska's boat was in waiting, and conveyed
the gentlemen on board, where they were received
with the usual honors. After an hour's agreeable
conversation with Captain Belknap and Lieutenant
Commander Nocll, the Ministers returned to the
shore. Upon leaving the vessel the customarv
salute of seventeen guns was fired in their honor.
' Jack ashore " is a proverbially happv fellow.
People are sure to look for fun alive " when they
see a group of seamen rolling up the street for a
day's run. Nor are they often disappointed.
Whether thev elect to charter a craft on wheels to
take them on a cruise to Waikiki; or up the valley.
or cast anchor alongside some congenial spirits in
bar-rooms and saloons, orstartona "jamboree
around town, they are sure to have a good time.
ul course tiiev can get into an " argvment some
times, and settle it up " ship-shape and mau-
fashion " with a few blows, but npou the whole
they do very little harm, and have a heap of fun.
The most stort,- ierhaps, is found in a short
voyage on horseback. Jack's his own captain then,
and all he asks is " a wet sheet and a fair wind,"
and he will log ten knots every hour, even if he
does get thrown on his beam-ends and have to be
towed back intoinirt. It's worth something to
hear a genuine Jack tar roar out a ballad or two
for the amusement of his mates. It makes no
difference, whether he can sing or not, he will give
you the best he s got, and be cheered by a chorus
twice as long as the song itself and three times as
noisy. lie generally manages to steer clear of the
station-honse, and is ready to go aboard when his
liberty is up.
Thirties of the Alaska's men were arrested 1

at the station-house sobering down.

At a meeting on Monday night of the committee
appointed by the Fire Department Board to decide
upon the question of new steam fire engines for
the department, it was decided to obtain the
opinion of the chief engineers of some of the large
cities in the States as to the best style of engine to
soject. What is needed here in our narrow streets is
that pattern of engine that can lie turned around
in the smallest possible space. Those built with a
" goore neck are of the kind needed, and it re-

Dr. Fitch had the management of a peculiar
case on Ihursdav. he having been called upon to
bring back to life, as one may say, a little Nor
wegian child who had drank some coal oil. It
seems that the oil had been poured into a tumbler
for some present use, and the two-year old child
drank n quantity of it. The effect was such that
when brought to Dr. Fitch the little one was as
pale as wax and as lifeless. A faint, very faint tl utter
of the pulse was discernible, while the pallor ami
pinched appearance of the face indicated death.
An emetic was administered which relieved the
stomach, and the free use of ammonia caused
the little patient to revive, and in a short time
it was out of danger.

Boy Killed on
Maui by Falling over a
Ou Sunday last, September 10, a New Hebrides
boy, aged 14 years, while hunting wild goats on
the mountains at Waikapu, fell over a perpen
dicular precipice about 200 feet in height,
and was instantly killed. His companions, two
Hebrides men and one Hawaiian, were not with
him at the time of his fall, but missed him
shortly afterwards, and search was made by
them for hiiu. His body was not found until
the next day. It was horribly mangled, and
was buried on the spot. Sheriff Everett did
not think it necessary to hold an inquest on the
body. The unfortunate boy and his com
panions worked for the Waikapn plantation.

There has been some idle rumor, or rather sheer
invention about alarm at the palace, the doubling
of guards, and other precautions. The occasion of
some of the volunteers being at the palace, ia their
regular semi-annual drill, when they mount guard
as part of their practice in the palace grounds. This
drill will lie continued on the parade ground and
at Kapiolani Park. These volunteers have been
drilling without ammunition. If there was any
cause of alarm, of which .happily there is not, the
brave volunteers would, no doubt, fill their cart
ridge boxes. But the vaporing of a few office seek
ing politicians is not likely to cause sufficient alarm,
either to cajl for ball cartridge, or Gattling guns.
A few newspaper squibs will suffice for them.

The Minister of the Interior has purchased some

considerable portion of the Esplanade will be
forAed into a solid roadway. Queen street will
receive attention at the same time. A survey has
been ordered of Alakea and Merchant streets with
a view to their improvement ana widening, rne
improvement of Alakea street is specially under
taken with the view of relieving Fort street, which
is already insumcient at times ior the tramc upon
it. Throughout the city work on the streets and
sidewalks is to bu carried on with vigor to the
fullest extent that a proper economy of the appro
priation will jiermit. It has also been decided
that the principal streets of the town of Hilo shall
be macadamized, the frequent rains that fall there
rendering such an expenditure not only desirable
from the point of view of those who have to use
the streets for traffic, but also a true economy for
the Government in the matter of future mainten

The Fiji Times of August 2d contains a full re
port of the trial at Noumea of the master of the
schooner Aurora and one of his recruiters for kid
napping people from Penticost and other islands.
These miscreants appear, from the evidence ad
duced at the trial, to have gone in wholesale for
stealing men, sometimes by trickery, sometimes
by sheer force. For instance a son was bought
from his father by the promise of a gun,
and when the father had been enticed on
board to fetch the price of his human chat
tel he was siezed and carried off too.
This dodge appears to have been repeat
ed several times. In reprisal for the doings
of the captain of the Aurora and his people
and 'of the master of another New Caledonian
vessel, the Venus (who is now awaiting his trial),
the captain and most of the crew of a British vessel
were attacked and killed by the natives of Apia.
The facts elicited by the enquiry made into that
affair were communicated to the French authori
ties, and the investigations they made led to these
trials. They have also led to an order from the
French Government for the entire suspension of
labor recruiting in Polynesia by French subjects.
The trial of the Aurora's people ended in a con
viction. The punishments inflicted were four years'
imprisonment and the costs of the trial for the cap
tain, and 18 months' imprisonment for his mate.
In view of the enormity of the crime, and the
bloody reprisals to which it naturally led. these
sentences appear extremely light. Nevertheless, it
is stated that " the effect of the verdict upon the
public was to call forth sympathy for the con
demned men, which." says the correspondent of
the Fiji Times, " can only be acconnted for by the
widely expressed opinion that they had been made
scapegoats to let escaiie those who also should
have been tried for gross neglect of duty, but who
escaped by influence." This reference is to the
Government agents who accompanied the Aurora
on two or her trips. Evidently the presence or a
Government agent is not enough to prevent kid
napping, especially when, as in the Aurora's case,
they are ignorant of the natives' language, and
not even able to speak the broken English known
as " beehe-le-mer," which is current in those
The Anna brings two day's later news from San
Frjincisco. Our acknowledgements are due to
Captain McCulloch and to Captain Babcock and
also to Messrs. Wm. G. Irwin and Co. for
late papers. In Eygpt the British troops were
pushing forward towards Tel-et-Kebir, but .no new
engagement had taken place. The Alta, of 28th,
has a telegram describing the engagement of
August 24th as ending in a repulse for the British,
and founds a somewhot lugubrious article on it,
showing what a -complete mess England has got
into. In tht same paper n this appears the
following copy of a telegram from General
Wolseley, dated Ismailia. 27th August : " I have
just returned from the outposts, and saw that our
action on Thursday and Friday had far more
important results than I was aware of yesterday.
The enemy were completely routed, and fled
toward Zagazig throwing away arras and accoutre
ments, and a large amount of camp equipage and
munitions was captured. Mahmoud Fehmy, Arabi
Pasha's chief engineer and military adviser, is now
a prisoner in my camp." The engineer referred to
in this dispatch has reported much suffering and
insubordination in the Egyptian army. The only
other news of much importance relates to Japan
and Corea. From Corea the news is that the
"anti-foreign revolutionary mob " had complete
sway. The report of the assasination of the King
is not confirmed, he had fled, and was in hiding.
An expedition of 30,000 troops and ten gunboats
was being fitted out by the Chinese Government to
restore order. The Japanese Legation had been
attacked by an armed mob, and after protracted
defense the Ambassador and his servants managed
to escape by the back premises and get on board
the English man-of-war Flying Fish, which took
them to Nagasaki. The matter caused great ex
citement in Japan, and a warlike expedition was
being prepared there also.
An hour's walk through Chinatown yesterday,
under the guidance of Fire Marshal McGuire,
made patent two important facts. First, that
the Marshal has an intimate acquaintance with
the ins and outs of the district bounded by
Nnuaun, Beretania, Maunakea, and King streets;
and, second, that all the vigilance that he
exercises is needed to keep the Chinese who
crowd that quarter from burning up themselves
and their district.
In the rear of the cook shops, of which there
are plenty on Hotel street, large cylindical
ovens of stonework, open at the top, are used in
which to roast pigs. These ovens are heated by
being filled with wood, which is ignited and
allowed to burn away to coals. The heat from
the pile is very intense, and in most cases the
roof over the oven is dangerously near the
flames. The Marshal has compelled the owners
of these ovens to cover the under 6ide of these
roofs with tin, but at the best this material
affords but a flimsy protection. Upstairs, down
stairs, under the stairs, indoors and outdoors
are to be found braziers and portable tin fire
holderr, dilapidated stoves, and crazy-looking
home-made contrivances in which to kindle
a little fire to boil a kettle or keep tea
hot. As a rule, the larger the fire, the
less the danger. It is from the little flames
burning here-and there in close corners, that
the greatest danger is to be expected. In one
place a carpenter shop. Utter d all over with
shavings and chip and crowded with dry lum
ber. Bin old kerosene can was being oe.l as a
fire place, and it being elevated on a little bench
close to the rubbish heap, from which ita fuel
was supplied, all that was needed to start a first
lass fire, was the falling ont of a burning frag
ment. In another place four stove pipes pro
ject through the roof of one honse, and that not
alarge one by any means. None of these rise
clear of the ridge polo of the building. In many
cases the pipes are within a few inches of the
partition walla, and the tin sheets sometimes
nailed against these partitions are of buf little
use, as they have no air space behind them.
Firewood in bundles, stacks of old lumber.
baskets, bags, and boxes filled with shavings,
and everything of a combustible nature that it
is possible for the Chinaman to save is to be
found packed away in rooms and yards. To add
to the danger, there are many yards and en
closures that can only be reached br narrow
blind lanes, or through the shops facing the
streets. In ease of m fire in this crowded locality
the men would hare to work at a great disad
vantage, if they succeeded in getting the hose
into one of these yards, and a stream of water
directed upon the flames, they would have to be
constantly on their guard, lest, whilst busy with
the fire before them, they be cut off by another
behind them. The have itself would have to be
dragged by hand for some long distance, and
no carriage could get up the narrow lanes. Mar
shal McGuire does all he can by frequent in
spection, and not infrequent imposition of fines,
to lessen the, dangers, but he always fluds some
thing to correct on each visit.
A Happy Marriage.
The wonted quiet of Chaplain lane was un
usually disturbed on Thursday night last, by
gaiety and music at the residence of Mrs. E. C.
Richardson on the occasion of the marriage of
her daughter Nellie to Mr. George W. Smith.
The grounds in front of the house were taste
fully illuminated by numerous tinted lanterns
pendent from the bonghs of beautifnl shrubbery.
The bright, variegated, radiaut lights in the
outer grove danced to a playful breeze, whilst a
throng of gay people danced within to the tender
strains of Berger's exquisite band music.
At quarter past seven a few intimate family
friends had assembled in Mrs. Richardson's par
lor, (which had been exquisitely decorated by
skilled and tasteful bands) to witness the cere
monial. The Rev. George Wallace, Rector of
St. Andrew's, robed in white canonicals, stood
within a charming flower festooned bower, with
a lucky horse shoe made of white rose bads
crowning its arch ; and by a beautiful marriage
altar radiant with fern, lily, rose, and stephano
tis. Soon the crowning feature and completion
of this floral shrine, appeared in the person of
the handsome regal, Miss Nellie, robed in white
satin, leaning on the arm ot her faithful George;
a handsome, composed, kindly-mannered, young
gentleman., full of promise. They were accom
panied by the lovely Miss May, a youuger sister
of the bride as bridesmaid, and by Mr. Poor, aa
best man. They were united by the Rev. gen
tleman in solemn and tender tone. The beauti-
iui marriage service leu impressively on every
ear and at its close, the thronging friends were
eager to tender hearty and loving wishes of joy,
here and hereafter to this young couple. God
After the ceremony there was wedding-cake
and champagne, and the toast to "the health of
the bride and groom " was cordially drunk.
At 8 p.m. a larger company began to assemble,
which, increasing beyond the accommodation of
the parlor, found space in a magnificent
tent, or marquee, or lanai, lent for the occasion
by Queen Emma, which had been construct
ed in the back yard. Here was an admirably
well laid floor covered with white linen, the roof
was covered with vast sails, and the walls were
festooned with flags and banners, an assistance
from the noble man-of-war Alaska, in port aud
soon the gallant Alaskans themselves came in
in splendid array Captain Belknap, Lieutenant
Commander Nelson, Lieutenant Sharrer, En
sign Dombangh, Ensign Hall, Ensign Rogers,
Ensign White, Ensign Wood, Midshipman
Bryan, Surgeon Whiting, Engineer King, En
gineer Belden, and Engine: r Byrne.
The King was among the foremost guests to
arrive His Majesty, in his usual affable way
had a pleasant word for many ladies and gentle
men who went away pleased with the encounter.
His Excellency the Premier, was present with a
face of smiles, and a manner evidently more im
pressed by the beauty and grace around him
than by any burthens or worries of State. And
it was interesting and amusing to some to note
at the same time, the the presence of the editor
of the indignant anti-administration, opposition
press. The Premier and the opposition bowed
to each other and smiled; notwithstanding the
fact that the " community seethes with discon
tent," that the Premier i " leading the country
to ruin," and that his Ministry can "have only
one ending, and that is disaster.'' The thought
of all this, and the ludicrous, 'though pleasant
contrast between talk and facts on this happy
occasion, caused numerous sly remarks, winks,
and smiles in corners.
The portion of the " tax overburdened '' and
"oppressed " community who had been invited
were lavish in beautiful and munificent gifts to
the happy bride. Three tables were loaded with
choice articles of pure gold and silver; chains,
chatelaines, bracelets, brooches, golden thimbles,
urns, vases, salvers, ladles, spoons, and a score
of other desirable things. We have been permit
ted to take a list of these presents, and now
publish them in accordance with the pleasant
custom which the American and English society
papers have made popular.

The Royal Hawaiian Band was preaeut during
the eveuing, and to the strains of Prof. Berger's
string band a long aud well -selected programme
of. dances was thoroughly enjoyed by the young
er portion of the company.
This motto in large Muck letters composed of
ferns was set up over one of the parlor doors,
and led to frequent inquiry. Jt is a name given
by Queen Dowager Emma to the bride in times
past, aud signifies taliooed, or defended by
heaven, or the sacred one of heaven. And we
trust the designation of the Royal Lndy will
prove prophetic of the hsppiiiess iu this life,,
and iu the life to come of the beautiful bride.
The Portuguese Immigrants.
Since the immigrant by the llaiiia were lauded
there ha been one birth aud one death amongst
them, the latter being that of an infant. Another
infant which was ajsiken of as likely to die Las re
covered, and after their three itav'a fresh air aud
fresh provisions, nearly the whole party, men,
women, and children look heahhy and vigorous.
Some ef the children in arms are being troubled
with opthalmia. and look drlicat. Their mothers
re always aiixioiisly looking for the doctor. Moon
after they were lauded one of the officials happened
to call the attention of Cnptaiii ISrown loan infant
that was ailing, aud the word seems to have hoen
quickly passed round that that gentleman was a
great medico, and it was amusing to see how the
anxious mothers sought lum out and in pathetic
Portuguese asked hisadvictt and assistance. 'Hi
explanations as t his lack of a diploma were
evidently as unintelligible tolhein as theii entreat
ies for advice were to him.

have Ixvn busy since Sunday washing clothes, for
which the accommodation at the barrack lis
lately Wen made very complete; meanwhile the
usual examination and verification of contract
has lieen proceeding in the verandah of the
central building. There has been rather more
trouble with this part of thn busiues than usual
on account of some careless copying at Ht.

work all day long, assisted by n officer of police
and an interpreter. Senhor ii Canavarro and Mr.
Kchaefer were also present examining the paper
of the immigrants ami making anre that they
thoroughly understood their contracts. Home feel
ing has lieen aroused by the refusal to allow friends
to visit the new arrivals pending the completion
of their arrangement. One woman made a pite
ous appeal ou .Monday to Captain Brown and to
the reporter of the Apvkui iskb who were leaving'
the place together. She could speak English enough
to tell them that her mother and sister wero inside
and she longed to see them. Intercourse between
friends was, however, practicable, the ground being
only divided from the road by an open picket
fence. The refusal to admit " frivtids until all

the subject in order to ascertain w hether objections
to the restriction had bten raised, and to obtain
his own view of the case. Ho fully concurred in
the regulation and had requested 'that no excep
tions should be made, as whnt was granted to

had been three days closely engaged without com
pleting hi examination of passports, etc. He found '
that some bad lost their paticis, ignorant of their

As far iih we uro at present
Jvudat and .Sumlakaii arc the
places which claim the dignity of settle
ments and trading ports. Tho first ia
prettily situate I on a land-locked cove,
which jtitH into the western aide of the
bay of Murudii.and a large arm of the sea,
situated in the northernmost point of
llornco Island. The metropolis of tho
new state is to he cstahlishcd here, and
and (Jovernor Treacher is only awaiting
the erection of the house and offices to
remove thither from Lahuan with all
his subordinates. The settlement con
sists of a ii u in I e r of Chinese, shops and
Malay huts, which are daily being added
to by new cuiners from tho neighboring
islands and Singapore. A Mubstantial
pier has been erected by a Singapore
firm, at which vessels of a considerable
draught may haul alongside. Having
been only startcas a station in the month
of December last, there is of course
little to be naid as to tho trade of Kudat
or of its prospects of trade, hut, consid
ering its short life, it may really bo pro
nounced to be a thriving place. Sanda
kan, which is situated in a fine bay that
forms the embouchure of tho two long
est rivers on the east coast (J North
Borneo, was founded upon a settlement
which had originally been a place of
considerable native trade, and has there
fore made material progress already. It
contains a population of 3000 souls, of
whom a large and influential number
are Chinese. Malays are continually ,
coming in from Sulu and the neighbor
ing islands, as well as from the distant
interior, attracted by the protection and
freedom from molestation which they
gecure under the new rcjitne. The
trade is jct limited, hut it suffices to
occupy two Kteamers, belonging to dif
ferent parties, and which make fort
nightly trips between Sandakan and.
Singapore, calling at Kudat and Labuan
cn route. The country round is covered
with forest, but the soil is rich, and pro
nounced to be well Hiiitcil to tho cultiva
tion of both low and high country pro
ducts. Much more might he added as
to other portions of the new territory
which are likely sooner or latsr to be
brought into prominence, when once
labor and capital can be brought to
bear. But our object being merely to
call attention to tho interesting fact
that communication has been opened
between this colony ami Borneo, w
will leave theso places and their capabi
lities for further notice hereafter. One
thing we are glad to learn on tho au
thority of those who are competent to
form an opinion. It is that the Malaj'
popu'ation have not only given np their
predatory and head hunting propensi
ties, but are willingly submitting them-
selves in all directions to the
lion oi ne resiueuis, whose grasp of
authority is effective in the maintenance
of good order and discipline. Even
ssme of the chiefs who wero at first re
calcitrant, and hesitated to acknowledge
the sovereignty of the company, are
now giving in their adhesion, with that
of their people. Uong Kong Daily
