THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER,- DECEMBER. 30, 1884
3 The special attention of Corporations ia called to a notice issued by the Minister of the Interior, and will be found in the " By Authority" column. Dr. McGiew wa3 wished many happy re turns of the day by a number of his friends on Tuesday hut, the occasion being hi3 Cist -birthday. - Pupils attending 3Ir. J. S. Emerson's "Algebra and Geometry class" are requested 1o meet to-morrow (Friday) evening at the Y. M. C. A. Hall at 7 . ac. The boys who ruu the. Pacific Commee--ctal Adtebtisei; are to be liberally enter tained by their "boss," Mr. Mollis, at a Christmas dinner to-day. The Alameda will sail for San Francitco promptly at noon to-morrow, the 3l3t. Last -chance this year to bend letters. Messrs. Dillingham A Co. advertise au invoice of carriage whips just received from New York. They are eflcctual X'er&uaders, as well ai ornamental. The toy and other holiday goods Bold by Lyons A Levey at the Bazaar last Monday sight wero numerous and varied. The quantityand quality of this class of goods increases evory year. The turkey-shoot at the Casino on Christ mas Day was carried on pretty much all day. The shooting was rather better than it was week ago, and more turkey wero carried home by. successful shooters The 8. S. City of New York, that used to run between San Francisco and the Colo nic, is now running to Yokohama. Ilor last trip over. leaving San Francisco on Oct 7th, she made the trip in 2 days. During the recrnt southerly storm the alt-laden wind sweeping over the trees at Waikiki and the Park, blasted much of the foliage, so that it looks sere and yellow. The dam aco done was but superficial, and will not result ia the loss of the trees. For New Years no prettier, sweeter or. .more toothsome gift can be found than a few of those candy-filled cornucopias that Horn has at hi bakery. The nicely-frosted cako be sent to this office on Saturday last was appreciated by "the staff, " and was a good sam pi o of good good a. Captain Morse, of the steamer Alameda, was delightfully surprised by a guitar seren? -ado on Christmas night. The performers; who turned out in full force, played for sovcral hours, much to the gallant Captain 8 gratification, and wero warmly entreated to come again somo time when they could stay longer. Xessrs. R. W. Laino & Co. have been ap pointed agents of Messrs. Dawson A Co., Trait packers, San Jose," Cal., and from samples of thoir goods that this office has received from BIr. Laine, and tested, it is safe to say, thai co better goods of the kind no to be had in town. Tho prices, too, aro cry raodarato. Tho euicido of Commander Greene, U. 8. K. I? reported from Annapolis, Md., in duced, it is said, by remorse. A contro versy has been going on for years in regard to the part taken by Greene while Execu tive Officer ot the "Monitor" in her fight with the "Mcrrimac," ho claiming the credit of driving off tho "Menrimac," which tho world conceded to Capt. B. Worden. The Bohemian glass blower, who has opened an exhibit in Cambell's Block, does some beautiful work in the fragile material he handler, so dexterously. By means of a blow-pipe and & jot of flame he fashions k almoa t anything with great skill and speed. Ta the room aro some specimens of his workmanship, amongst which aro a couple of walking-beam enginca, wholly of glass in full operation. The life-sized figure of a lady in a spun-glass costumo is very hand some, and the exhibition is well worth a visit. The test of the Ilarden Hand Grenade (not Grandad, as tho Guide had it) took place on tho Esplanade yesterday afternoon, at 2 p.m. sharp. A screen of boards about 8 feet wide and 10 feet high was set up with boards at tho fides, and against-this screen, which was smeared with tar, was stacked a quantity of dry wood, shavings, loose pack ings etc., the whole being soaked in, kerosene and daubed with tar, so that when a light was applied tho whole burst into a mass of ilamo that drovo back tho crowd of spec tators to a distance of thirty or forty feet. The wood burnt fiercely, and when the whole mass was fairly burning, not tho oil vnd tar alone, but the wood itself, Mr. Myers, the agent, ran forward with a gren ade in each hand and broke them against each other so close to the flame that ho was go:nwhat scorched in doing so. Tho effect cf tho fluid with which they were filled was nagical, the flames being extinguished as cno would blow out a match, there being nothing left burning but a few fragments that tho application of tho contents of another grenado entirely quenched. The trial was s success in every particular, and wa3 witnessed by a large number of our citizens, representatives of the Fire Depart ment and Insurance Agencies, being pro r.iinerJ. All expressed thtir satisfaction a t the working of the grenade, tho remark being mado by many that the efficiency of thi3 new fire-extinguisher was much en hanced by the cleanliness of its work, there being no damage by water, no viie smells about it nothing, in short, to offend the tteto of the mont fastidious. On Sunday afternoon several Chinamen were fishing for awa and amaama, at Ilaali liamanu bridge, when they were arrested by three policeman, and locked up. Wh,t for ? Quite a 1 avy rainfall set in last Satur day night, sad for & short time the streets ran with water. All day Sunday the clouds lowered over the city and the air was damp and chilly. Dodd brought Steamer No. 2 down to the head cf Kaahumanu street in fine style last Saturday behind a span of powerful horses. There should certainly be ono team drilled for this special purpose. The usual fire drill of steamei-s took place last Saturday afternoon, and a large quan tity of water was sent into tho low lying clouds. Later in the evening it all came down again in the form of a heavy shower. A census agent complained 3'esterday that ! when ho went into one man's yard to de ; liver a blank the householder seized him by ' the wrist, hauled him out of the. yard and told, him that if ho found him in there again he weald shoot him. lie telephoned for instructions, and received the reply "Laissez aire.' Tho trial of speed between the intor sland steamers Kinau and W. G. Hall demonstrated the fact that in a moderate sea and breeze the former is the fastest ves sel of the two. - The Kinau left Ilonolulu on the 23d, and made tho best time on record to Maalaia Bay, as follows: Light-house, ilouolula, at 4:12 p. k.; off Molokai light at 6:51; Eaunakakai light at 8 r. x.; .Lahaina at 9:45, dropping anchor at Maalaia Bay at 10:55 p.m., beating the -W. G Hall by 32 minutes, that vessel arriving at the bay at 12:20 p. u. The time of the Kinau was C hours 43 minutes, distance 90 miles, mak ing an average of very riearly 14 miles per hour. Mr. Chas. J. Wall, the weil known archi tect and builder, died suddenly t his resi dence at an early hour last Saturday morn ing, of hemorrhage in thy head. The de ceased had been a resident cf thes3 islands about five years, coming here from the United States and cngagiag in business as an architect and builder. The Palace, Music Hall, and Kaumakcpili Church were erected on hi.) plans. Mr. Wall was a na tive of Ireland, and was 57 years of ago at the timo of his death, ne leaves a widow and nine children to roourn his decease. The funeral took place on Saturday after noon at 3 o'clock, the Rev. Alexander Mackintosh conducting the services. The Hawaiian schooner Jennie Walker Captain Holland, arrived on Christmas Day 35 days from Jaluit. The following sum? mary o f her voyage is taken from the Hal uaiian of yesterday : " Captain Holland reports having had fine, moderate gales th4 entire passage. She left hero on July 251b; for Jaluit, and arrived there on the 22nd August. Thence to Kusia, and arrived there on the 27th August ; landed Bev.

Capt. C. B. Kustcll, of the wrecked schooner Ariel, came down on her. A Handsome Map. Mr. M. D. Monsarrat has completed a most elaborate and accurate map of Hono lulu, showing every house, building, store, the lamp-posts, water hydrants, lines of piping, and every other fixture on a large scale. The original is well worth examin ing, and from it Mr. Monsarrat will print copies for sale. It is the most useful and accurate pieco of work of its kind ever undertaken here, and will, no doubt, meet with & large sale. The Ilasselinau Concert, Tho Farowell Complimentary Concert given Thursday night in tho Y.M.C.A.Hall to Mr. Chas. Hasselman prior to his departure for the Colonies was well attended, and was by far the best yet rendered by the Sym phony Club and other amateur musical talent of Honolulu. Mr. Hasselinan himself was in-line voice, and sang with great sweetness and feeling. The brief space at our disposal in this issue precludes tUe extended notice the per formance deserves, and we can only speak of the vocal gem of the eveaiug beiujj the duet between M.ss Bemice Parke aud Mr. Haissel man. Miss Castle's piano playing was es pecially good, au 1, iu fact, the performers all did well. Mr. HaoS-lman miy well be proud of tha concert, to which his own singing added much. Charade."-- """"' Mr First connects friends by the subtlest of ties ; By a magnetic current as fine As the soul-thrilllnsr glance sent by love-laden eyes; . . And as swift as the light, as earthward it flies From the stars lu the heavens as they shine. My Second siu night and day in his snug chair JSight and day in his chair sits he : : j And he hears all that's sent through the voiceless air On the Iron nerves stretched o'er the town every where From Paluma to warm Waikiki. My third is to business alone cousecrate. And over its dror should be written : lie whj venuuvs within with intention to prate. Having no other business, had better vacate. Or else with club he'll be smitten.'" My Whole is a new Dionysian Cell, Vrhere!n every whisper is heard By my Second, who many a story could tell That would cause the lean soula of our gossips to swell : But from him you can't get a word ! Probublc loMn or Che "Kalinin." Mr. W. H. Hall has received a letter froni Rev. P. Kanoa, writing from Butaritari (Makins) Island, Gilbert group, under date of Oct. 30th, in which lie says that he hears that the schooner "Kaluna," Capt. LovellJ has been wrecked on Mukunoa (or Byron's) island, and gone to pieces. This is the same' island that the "Julia" was wrecked upon, and the "Kaluna" is the vessel that touched; there and took off Capt. Tripp and crew. The Printers Not Forgotten. .Once more the employees of the P. C. Aivekti8eii aro the recipients of a splendid box of fruit from the enterprising firm of Sresovieh, Gray A Co., through the courtesy of their gentlemanly and well-known man ager, Mr. Z. K. Myers. This firm is still young in existence in Honolulu, but their reputation for strict and honorable dealing is second to none. Their stock of goods is complete in every respect, and parties de sirous of purchasing any of ,the staples or delicacies of the season will do well to give them a call. Their place of business is No. 73 Hotel street, where will be found attentive and careful clerks, and all goods will bo de livered free of charge. Tho Teachers Convention. ' rr. A number of the teaohers employed in on Public Schools met yesterday in annual con-; vention in the Y. II. C. A. Hall. Mr. M. M.; Scott, Principal of. the Fort Street School and President of the Association, presided, and Miss Lula L. Moore, the Secretary, read tho report. The President addressed the members present, discussing the results fol lowing the expending of publio monies on the schools. He advocated a more thorough education of deserving pupils in tho higher branches. Bev. Mr. Mackintosh, who has In charge tho preparation of a new geography, asked , the assistance of his fellow-teachers in the: werk of revising during the coming year.? Election of officers being in order, the fol lowing were chosen for the coming year : H. S. Townsend. President ; Rev. W. C. Merritt, Vice-President; Miss Lula L. Moore (re-elected), Secretary. Htfpon the suggestion contained in a letter from Mr. Hitchcock, Principal of Lahaina" lnna Seminary (who apologised for his un avoidable absence) , a committee consisting of Mr. Olesen, Dr. Hyde, and Miss Hardy, was appointed to prepare resolutions for discussion. An interesting address by Mr. Moore teacher at Wailuku, on the subject: "The reaching of English o Hawaiians," was delivered. This proved to be the most in teresting portion of the day's proceedings, and it is to be regretted that more of those who are employed to teach the Hawaiians English were not present.. A3 a contem porary very shrewdly remarks, ' It is im possible that the teachers present " (a..u we Svill add tho absentees as well) " should not be benefited by the ideas elicited in the lec ture and discussion." More Mystery ! After the style of the Hawaiian. "The (60-called) Minister of the Interior (heaven save the mark !) has at last adver tised for bids for tho constructing of reser voirs, dams, etc., for the storage and distri bution ot water for Honolulu. " There are two or three points displayed in the advertisement in question which be tray the narrow-minded, incapable, second-rate-bookkeeper's-clerk calibre of mind of the individual who occupies the post of Minister of the Interior. "First, he calls for sealed1 tenders. There sticks out the secretive, keep-em-all-in-the dark, hole-and-corner policy of the present Administration. Sealed' tenders forsooth I Why couldn't he come out (as we would if we wero in his place), and with a speaking trumpet in bis hand, mount so to speak the quarter deck, and make his wishes kuown ship-shape aud man-fashion ? "Another point is this : The Minister of the Interior holds , back this advertisement until the raitis have ceased! Can anyone believe now that he is nut as completely under the control the Foreign Office as ever his colleagues were? And then again, he requires bonds ' to be given for the faithful execution of the work 1 What is this but an acknowledgement of the deep feeling of distrust, the ever-widening breach that exists between the Government and the people. Why could ho not do as previous Administrations have done, and let this work to some honest ring without exacting these humiliating terms? But, we don't suppose ho will, so we wash our hands of the whole affair, pipe all hands below, and turn in." Installation of Officer or Hawaiian Jjmlse Xo. 21, F. A A. M. The officers for the ensuing Masonic year were duly instaried by P. M.Juo. H. Has singer, assisted by P. M. Geo. E. Howe, last Saturday. Present, about 10 brethren.

The presentation wa& made by the retiring Mas ter, P. M. Bro. F. Higgins, who, in a few appropriate words, requested Bro. Dayton's acceptance of the jewel.
