THE DEPARTURE OF THE MARIPOSA
was the principal excitement yester
day. By half-past one the O. S. S.
Co's dock was thronged with people
and the decks and cabins were also
crowded not only with intending pas
sengers and their friends but with
curious sight-seers. By two o'clock
the human stream had finished sot
ting shoreward and the csscl cast
oil' its moorings. The Boyal Ha
waiian Band struck up "Sweet Lei
Lchua" and other brilliant marches
finishing with the Star Spangled
Banner. It was most amusing and
yet affecting to sec the boys making
the most of their opportunities to
wave farewell to their friends and
still keep up playing.
The vessels in the harbor dis
played their Hags and bunting anil
the various engines and steamers
.sounded their shrillest whistles. One
gun was fired.
A perfect mass of people lined the
shores and covered the decks of the
vessels in the vicinity. Amongst
those who went on board were His
Majesty and II. K. II. Princess
Likelike. A reference to our pas
senger list will show the number of
Honolulu notables and distinguished
visitors now on board. "With all of
fiese we send our heartiest aloha.
SERVICES GRACEFULLY RECOGNIZED.
Just before Mr. F. A. Schaefer's
departure by the Mariposa Mr. T.
C. Porter, Secretary of Hawaiian
Lodge, No 21, F. & A. M., on behalf
of the Lodge presented him with a
handsome Treasurer's. Jewel as a
slight recognition of his services as
Treasurer for the past sixteen years.
The matter had been so secretly
kept that it was a genuine surprise
to Mr. Schaefer who responded in a
handsome letter which will be read
at the next' lodge meeting. The de
sign is a handsome one of two
crossed keys in a circle surmounted
by two clasped hands and suitably
inscribed. The workmanship re
flects great credit on Messrs Broglic
& Spear, the makers.

From Our own Correspondent.
The Parliament has met and dis
posed of the preliminaries of the
Session and has now fairly settled
down to work. The first'Bill intro
duced is one amending the Educa
tion Act, which measure is based on
the recommendations of the Royal
Commission which has Just finished
a very prolonged enquiry. Judging
by the large number of letters ap
pearing in the newspapers the al
terations proposed to be made (For
the Bill is still under discussion) in
the present system will be met with
stiong opposition. The Bill pro
poses to raise the amount paid as
school fees from 4 pence to G pence
and to double this amount when the

Dissatisfaction is being expressed

ENGLAND'S NEWEST FIGHTING SHIP,
A naval officer who returned from
duty in the European squadron a
few days ago visited' the naval es
tablishments of England before
starting for home. lie said yester
day : "At no time has there been
so much activity at the Chatham
dockyard at this season 'of the year
aB now. The British Admiralty arc
for some reason, perhaps, because of
the1 present Irish troubles, pushing
forward the armored vcssols which
arc building, and will have them
completed at an early date. The
mechanics are employed on extra
time. The greatest amount of at
tention is being given to the now cr
ful twin sciew, stccl-armorcd
stenmer Warspito, which is al
together an exceptional typo of
vessel. It is tinlendod hut she shall
be the fastest armoied vessel afloat,
and, while she is to be employed on
cruising duty, her offensive
and defensive equipment will be
equal to that of any vessel she will
probably ever meet. She is over 800
feet long, with a displacement of 7,
i)S)0 tons. Her armor plating will be
steel-faced, ten inches thick, and
carried five feet below the water line.
Her armor is laid on a ten-inch
backing, with the usual iron skin
plating, thus presenting a solid
thickness of nearly two feet of steel,
iron and timber against the impact
of shot and shell.
"Above the fighting deck will be a
tower, protected by a steel armour,
while her weather deck will be pro
tected by steel-faced armor. The
armament will be unusually heavy,
consisting of four 18-ton "brecch
loadiug rifles, 'besides the usual
machine guns and torpedoes. The
rifles will be capable of piercing
sixteen inches of iron armor, or
thirteen inches of steel armor at a
distance of 1,000 yards. She will also
have a numbar of six-inch breech-
loading rifles for effective work at a
range of five miles. Her cost, when
completed, will be about $3,750,000,
her hull and machinery alone costing
aboitt $2,500,000. This, together
with the other armored vessels, will
be completed during the present
year." AT. T. Sh, April 19th.
