THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER. MARCH 20. 1884. A- v , V Lturgl&ry is -till rife, but :u the latent in- j La.st week a brief reference made in stance: :t differ.- some wha : from the preced- ; these columns to the advantages to be gained ;ng ca "'-., inasmuch a - the burglars have ( by tiaveling Fast on the Chicago.

Omaha 14 hours earlier and intermediate In the meantima one of the burglars made j towns in the same proportion. tracks for the King St. door, but was inter cepted by Mr. Judge's friend who remained on the premises. The would-be runaway was caught and on Mr. Judge's return. a policeman was summoned and tho thief was given in charge. Judge warned the policeman to Lold on tightly to his victim. Whilst he was being escerted to the police station, the cul prit slipped out of the clutches of the po liceman and escaped. Knowing who he was, a search was instigated on Sunday morning and both of the burglar- were found in a room on Smith-. Lane. We learned that tk.y gained an entiauce to the premise by ascending the roof from the alley way along side of M. Mclnerny's .-.tore on Merchant street, and there being an opening on the aiakai :ddo of the building, they easily got inside. The safe was the centre of attrac tion to them, and one of them who had been previously engaged on the premise, knew how to open it. After so doing they curt away the wooden casement of an iron drawer which contained about $750. This they took into one of the back room?, and regaled themselves with some beer. "Whilst so engaged they were surprised and almost caught hot-handed. Both of the burglars are j-oung men under 20 years of age, and are named respectively Russell Germain and George Richardson. On appearing before the Police Magistrate on Monday morning, they pleaded guilty, and were committed for trial. Tho following is a copy of a letter that was found in our latter box on Saturday last and we print as we received it. Probably the object of the communication is to furn tsh new light on what has been considered a vexed question: HoNOM Lr. Ma. -eh 21.-t. 185-1.

Alameda, near Hono lulu, H. I. March 22. 188 We, the undersigned cabin pa.-sengers, hereby tender our sincere thauks to Capt. II. G. Morse, Purser J. Y. Sutton, and all the other officers of the O. S. S. Co'-., steam ship Alameda for the many act.-, of kindness-, Attention and courtesy shewn to u. during our pleasant trip from San Francisco to Honolulu, II. I. The fittings of the steamer are elegant, her table rirst-cla..s. in fact everything ha b-sen done by the O. S. S. Co. and their offi cers to make the trip what it wa one of '-omfort and pleasure. (Signed by all the cabin passengers. Mr. K. M. Jewell, the busine agent of Sherman' circus, went lat Monday after noon on the steamer Kilauea Kou to AVai luku, Maui, to make arrangements for the appearance of the circus company at that place the latter part of next week. If Mr. Jewell uses a much energy in advertising the circus at "Wailuku and the surrounding town- as he has in Honolulu, the company "ill no doubt hr as equally well patronized '.:cie :. it ha In en here. . he lio.-;o:i excurs n party arrived by staying at the Hetc-1. he Alameda, and are A large number of them proceeded on the steamship Kinau o volcano. Tue-dav to vi-it the master-General Greshaui has completed ar- range men ts for the extension of the fast mail t Omaha. The details are as follows : The new service will be over the Chicago, liur- j lington and Quincy road, the first train lea- ting at :' a. m. and reaching Omaha at 8 o'clock in the evening of the same day. This train will take the mail brought by the fast tiain from New York, which leaves thwre at 8:30 i. si. and arrives at Chicago at 12:30 v. si. the next day. The new train will catch and deliver mail at all stations evi route. The result will be a. saving of twenty-four hours' time between New York and Omaha, and all points wst of Omaha to the Pacific Coast, a.s the fast train connects at Omaha The two whalers cruising outside, the Mars and the Hunter, had trouble Monday last. In the first place, three of the Mars crew swam ashore on Saturday last. They were arrest ed and placed in the lock-up for safe keep ing. On Monday the crews of both vessels re fused to do duty. A committee of four men from the Mars found their way on shore, and interviewed United States Consul D. McKinley.Eftq. They stated their grievance, the gist of which was they wanted liberty, or in other words, a run on shore. The Con sul told them that they could not have lib erty here, as it was against the wish of the Captain. They were insulting in their lan guage towards the Consul and made threats, upon which Mr. McKinley had them arrest ed and placed in the station house. That night there were seven of the Mars' crew in jail and threo of the Hunter's. The former vessel went to sea on Tuesday, when her men were put on board ; the Hunter's men were similarly dealt with when she was ready to proceed north. The rumors that were cur rent yesterday that blood had been shed and the lives of the officers were in danger is un true. It is nothing unusual for whaling vessels to Irave disturbances of this kind when they lay 4ioff and on" the port of Ho nolulu.

San Francisco, and indicted by the Grand Jury on seven charges of embezzle ment, pleaded guilty in Judge Toohy's Court j to having embezzled $93 73 of the State's ! funds. He denies ever having been m a ring with either Gray or O'Brien. He suspected that Grav was stealing, but did not think that O'Brien would stoop so low. He said that he always lived tip to his salary and of ten beyond it and that drink was the cause of hi downfall. He admits that he embez zled the money during campaign time and when he was a little "hard up." He will probably escape with a sentence of three years. The sentence was to be passed on Monday the 17th instant, two days after the S. S. Alamedi left San Franci?co. News was received Saturday last from Col. Iaukea. He reached India on 29th Febru arv. and wa then at Bombay, from whence he would go overland to Calcutta. A tele gram dated 3rd March, addressed to the Minister of Foreign Affair, announces that he was then at Colombo. Though it con- j tains no detail-, it is believed from its tenor ! that tho result- of Col. Iaukea' mission to India will be found t be of importance. He ' will robably reach Tokio a few days hence, j and may bo expected home about the mid ! die of Mav. ; We clip from th? Baltimore Sun of Feb. I 'id. the following notice of a Hawaiian pos ! tal money order--the first ever paid at the ! Baltimore Postofiice: The firs; Hawaiian foreign money order ever received in Haiti- more reached the postofiice yesterday from Honolulu. Sandwich Islands, for S20. It was issued on January 30.

James Dodd for $353. ! Mr. Charles Dexter, late Chief Steward of j the steamship Alameda, has accepted "a; call " to the Hawaiian Hotel. As a chef he cannot be excelled, and it is doubtful if there is his equal in this city. After assum ing his duties, we hope to have the pleasure of testing Mr. Dexter's catering. We un derstand that the billiard and bar-room will also be placed under his special superin tendence, and in this department there is plenty of room for improved management. The man who broke into Mr. Michiels' store has been arrested. It is a native uamod Waiaha. and was in the employ of Mr. Michiel. He is a white-headed old man, and his previous record is not without blemish. In this case, as well as in the Keystone case, the foreign policemen deserve praise for their acutcness in bringing the offenders to justice. It is to be regretted that a similar compliment cannot be paid to the native policemen. The circus company paraded the streets last Monday afternoon, headed by the band. Of the horses, tho educated "Jack" had the advantage, as he was carried around by two of his confreres on a four-wheeled truck. The great attraction for the Hawaiian youths however, was in the two diminutive ponies, Duke and Duchess, both of which were un der the special charge of Harry Morosco. The tout ensemble was a novelty in Honolulu and though not particularly grand, it proved attractive. In consequence of the death of Lieut. -Colonel Kinimaka, Adjutant Robt. Hoapili Baker has been promoted to be Major of the King's Guard and the volunteer forces; Captain John T. Baker to be Adjutant of the same: Lieutenant Kalolii to be Captain of the King's Guard ; Lieutenant John K. Paul to bo 1st Lieutenant, and Sub-Lieut. Hoa C. Ulokou to be 2nd Lieutenant, and Robert Parker to be 3rd Lieutenant of the Kind's Guard. The commissions date from the 17th inst. The overcrowding of the Grand Opera House in San Francisco by Colonel Maple son and his agents has resulted in their be ing arrested for violating the fire regulations of that city. The Wasp csays that "the tick et speculators who were arrested bhould be tried by a jury of their victims. Guilty with no recommendation to mercy would inevita bly be tho verdict. Public indignation de mands a victim, and so let the speculators be sacrificed." The S. S. Australia arrived on Monday'af ternoon, and left after four hour stay in port. There was not more than one hour's difference betwixt her time and the Ala meda's, the last named having the ad vantage. On Saturday afternoou there was a col- j lision on Fort street between an express j wagon and a private carriage. The only j damage was the breaking of the shaft of the j buggy. A native girl was driving at the j time, and the damaged carriage is the prop- ; erty of Mr. John H. Brown. ! A meeting of stockholders in the "Daily Hawaiian " was held Tuesday last, at which the following officers were elected : President and Manager, Daniel Lyons ; Treasurer, S. M. Whitman ; Secretary. "W. G. Ashley. The two young men who entered ihe Key stone Saloon on Sunday morning and com mitted larceny, pleaded guilty and were committed for trial at tha Supreme Court. The Alt a says that the mongoose is a suc cess on the Hawaiian Islands in the matter of exterminating rabbits. Where did the rabbits come from ? Mr. H. "W. Ferguson, third officer of the S. S. Alameda, has resigned, and intends joining an Arctic whaling schooner that is expected to arrive shortly. The reciprocity treaty with Mexico was ratified by the U. S. Senate on the 11th in tant by a vote of U to 20 the exact vote neceary. The criminal portion of the calendar for the April term is swelling up rapidly and it promise to be a very heavy one for the for eign juryni'jii. There was a grand proces.-ioi: of Iri.-hmtn in San Francisco on the occasion of the cel ebration of St. Patrick's Day. Purser Hennessey of the P. M. S. S. City of Tokio extended the usual courtesies to this office. It is gratifying to know that some of the gentlemen holding the position j of purser on board the steamers that pas this way understand how easily they can i please the public, and on the other hand j when thev nWr f.i ivrfurm lnt i k. pec ted of them, the consequences cannot be anticipated. Thanks to Mr. Hennessey. The following is a copy f the certificate that is given to each pupil at tho schools in this city after medical examination : CERTIFICATE OF HEALTH FOP. SCHOOLS. Honolulu-, H. I ISv . We hereby certify that we have care fully examined . . . a scholar in School, and that hew at the present time free from all symptoms of any contagious or infectious disease. Signed N. 15. Emik-on. G. W. P.iukkk. The rates of cab fares in this city are not satisfactory to the public. The following rates, taken from a New York paper, might be a good guide for the hackmen's charges. "A new cab company has started business in New Yoik. The rate of faro is twenty-five cents a mile or less, and a fifteen minute' waiting is considered equivalent to a mile ride." From the Mornimj Call we learn that the Hawaiian bark, Lilly Grace, formerly in command of Captain Hughes, and recently sold to parties in Chili, was about to take her departure from San Franeico when the i insurance men discovered defects in her j mizzen masts. On tiii account no I insurance would be granted. Our thanks are due to Pilot liabcock for his customary attention in handing u the la test files obtained by him from new arrivals. The Winter term of the Oaha College closes to-day and the Spring term will open on the 9th April. Island Notes. Kon.vL.i, Haw aii, March 2-., 188-1. Halawa again on the war path. Saturdav evening last quite a proportion of the resi dents of Halawa engaged in a little recrea tion of a character that obliged our ever watchful guardian of the poace. Mr. Milton, to place them under- arret. It seems strange that this should chance just after missionary service, during which two of the arrested ones recited verses from scripture, now little can be believed from outward signs of religion. Our aristocratic sheriff was on his dig nity Friday last, and when called upon by a Chinaman for a warrant to arrest a per son for stealing, not only refused the war rant, but upbraided the Chinaman' for pre suming to urgo the matter. So it is said on the streets. It is of the utmost importance that this man should be retained as he is so ! reliable. Tuesday morning a German in the employ of the Hawaiian Railroad Company fell be tween the cars, and was almost instantly killed. No one to blame but himself. Would it not be as well for our Railroad Company to have brakes put on its passen ger car before an accident like that at Ka hului occurs? It is doubly necessary on a road where so many trestles or sharp curves make travelling dangerous without unuaual caution. Why is it that letters mailed in Kouala for local distribution on Wednesday morning are not delivered with the regular steamer mail instead of being detained a week. A minor on the street (perhaps without foundation) savs that our sherid has been arrcsted on a charge of very nes. Nice man, our sheriff. vreoked busi- Police Court. i E FOSE i OLICK-.IU.STIC"- I'.IC X ZTi 70 V. Saturday, March 22, 181. A native. charged o Mil Ul V.4 i X..

The defend ant, in the meanwhile, committed a nui sance, when he moved towards him and told him to move on. Another native committed a similar act. There were three police offi cers there, and he called to them to order the defendant and his friend to move further down the street. Witness told the police man to arrest the defendant. The defend ant rushed up and struck witness in the breast : he also got very violent and used bad language. Another witness tried to get him away, and defendant struck, him in the face. In cros --examination the witness stated that the lady in question was his sis ter, Mrs. Fishci. Mr. Ginsberg gave similar evidence, add ing that the natives wore all under the in fiuence of liquor.
