States FibIi Commission in a
princely way yesterday. Ho en
gaged lio directors1 parlor car
"Poarl"of the Onliu ISailwnyA:
Land Company to tako thorn on
an excursion to Pearl Harbor.
The car was attached to tho Wai-
anao morning express, and tho
party occupying it was as follows
Captain Mosor, Lieut, l'armonter,
Paymaster Da 13ois and Dr.
Young, of tho U. S. Fish Commis
sion's stoamer Albatross; Dr.Leon
hard Stejneger, of tho United
States National Museum, "Wash

Behring Sea Commission; Dr.

Dillingham, Huperinteudent 0. 11.
tfc L. Co.. .John F. Colburn, Judge i
Autone Kosn, A. (.x. M. Uobortson
and Daniel Logan.
"When tho tiuin arrived at tho
Peninsula branch station, Mr.
Colburn conducted tho guests to
his beach lodge, on a beautiful
Blinded and ilouored lawn, over
looking his extensive iish ponds.
After regaling thorn with iced
beverages agieeablo to every
tasto, he showed them tocomforta
lilo cLairs on the sward, whore
they could enjoy to the full tho

Tho party were not for resting
long, howover, when they had be
come aware that a native feast -na
in prepai.it! n at 'ho rt'ir of tho
premises. This was a novelty tho
visitors especially dcsiicd to see.
As the suckling pigs wore being
laid on tho hot stones, Dr. Miller
took a photograph of tho perform
mice, with tho spectators ranged
in tho background. With two
pigs, bulging with hot Btones and
nicely wrapped in leaves, several
stuffed ducks, also iish, sliced taro
and whole sweet potntoeB, wero
in one hot burial blent.
"When tho savory mound had
been built, tho party was ready
for an excursion on tho lochs.
The steam launch of the Albatross
had arrived, under tho pilotage of
Oliver K. Stillman, and in this
craft and a boat towed behind tho
party ombarkod for Brown's pon
msula. It was a lovely overcast
morning, bo that tho trip on tho
water was greatly enjoyed. A
few rods from shoro tho
launch got into shoal water,
and tho littlo boat waB brought
into sei vice for landing. This took
two trips. 13ut the boat itself
could not get close to dry laud,
thn water shoaled so much thorn.
"While tho passengers wore think
ing of stripping thoir feet for a
wade, a stout native boatman ap
peared with extended arms to car
ry tin m iihhoiv. Mr. Dillingham,
biing (ho man of tho greatest
bulk in tho first boatload, was first
to bo grappled. Bvorybody but
tho native Atlas held his breath
in auspenso, but tho railroad mag
nate was, if tor a titanic struggle
of tho bearer, planted foot down
and dryshod on the strand. It
wns only fun with tho rest, al
though most of them rank
oil as heavy weights. When

boatload, tho present deponent

Upon landing tho excursionists
woro confronted with one of tho
most remarkablo sights in theso
in any part of tho world. There is
a vortical imitl aoout unio leot
high, with Blight caves at the bot-1
torn, ontiroly built ot oyster
Bhells. It might bo imagined to i
bo tho back yard of a mammoth i
oyster saloon of prehistoric times,
as it is hard to realize that such a j
mass of oystors could havo lived i
together in their nativo beds.
There is easy proof visible, how- !
ever, that these shells never en-
count nd th' coll sti-il of the1
oyster opener. lheso bivalves
nover wero opened, as thosholls aro
intact iu pairs. Thoy are in many
ensos in a wondciful stato of pro
sorvatioii, Hound, hard and having
a clear riug when clashed togeth
er. Those in tho lower strata aro
of n size equal to tho choicest oyg
tors of commerco today, and are
idontieal in general appearanco
with tho familiar Eastern oyster
of America. Tho beach lino for a
long distance is abutted with
similar oyster banks, nnd a little
back from tho shoro aro great
mounds whoso surfaces glisten
with tho roniaiiisof thopenri shell
oyster. Specimens of tho shells
wero secured by tho savants of
tho Fish Commission.
What makes this great deposit
of oyster sholls especially lemark
nblo is tho fact that from time iin-
momorial indigenous live oystors :
havo not been found in Hawaiian !
waters. Mr. Colburn was regard
ed ns engaging in a bold enterprise
when, two or throe years ago, ho
planted oysters imported from the
United States iu his ponds at
Pearl Harbor. Tho elevation of
tho prehistoiio oyster beds abovo
sea level would indicate a great
uplift of the earth's ei list in this
region some timo far in the past.
On tho party's return to Mr.
Colburn's place, tho live oyster
bods woro inspected. Their quiet
denizens woro found to bo iu a '
healthy stato of both individual
growth and numerical increase.
In tho afternoon tho party wero
treated to a test of their qualities, '
and all agreed that the flavor was i
excellent. Dr. Miller was givon
bimin specimens for the tanks of I
tho Albntio.ss. Jlo took tho
specific giavity of the water where '
the oysters are growing, and mado

Tho exhumation of the compo
nents of tho feast was no less iu

Captain Mosor expressed tho fool
ing ot everybody elso present,
when, at tho conclusion, ho said
that another red letter day wus
added to his life's calondar. Mrs.
Colburn, who had personally
superintended tho preparation
and serving of tho luau, was
heartily complimented ami thank

commandor put it, Dr. Miller

Tho Hawaiian Xatioual baud
has boon away a littlo over eigh
teen months, during which con
certs wore given in more than
half tho States iu tho Union. Tho
boys havo onjoyed good health,
had a fairly good timo, havo
gained considerable knowledge of
up-to-date music, and havo como
back Hat broko. Tho band mado
plenty of money, but tho band
boys did not get it. Thoy wero
working on a salary, and part of
tho time did not got all of that.
A leading member of tho baud
ascribes most of their dilliculties
nud monetary troubles to that
eminent financior and musician,
Professor Libornio, whoso claims
for e-alary and expenses nover

led to the ho Aylotts, Major,
Cooper and Wilson leaving tho
baud and coming home.
Tliis defection left thorn strand
ed, without instruments and with
out a dollar. Fortunately for
i thorn, however, thoy woro takon in
, baud by Professor Liberati, a
solo cornotiit and musician of
note, who saw n chance to turn a
fow honest dollars by befriending

Tho fact that Libornio waB married
