The annual parade of the Honolulu Fire Department has been earned out in a manner which affords ample grounds for congratulation. The several com pany i, as they inarched past, presented u magnificent display of the manhood of this city, no less from a moral than a physical point of view. For, while one cannot but admire the valiant forms of our gallant defenders, the fact must ' not be lost sight of that the valuable services they have repeatedly rendered are purely voluntary and gratuitous. Such being the case, the very existence of the Fire Department is based upon the principle of selt-denial. This organization must ever be regarded as reflecting favorably upon this city, in which it has during many years played so honorable a part. It is to be regretted that disaffection has latterly arisen among a small section of the members to mar the otherwise ex cellent esprit de corps, but that is an evil which it is to be hoped time will eradicate.

The annual parade of the Honolulu Fire Department took place yesterday, and was one of the most successful ever held. On Thursday night it looked very much as if the parade would have to be abandoned, owing to the stormy weather. However, it cleared up through the night, and Friday morning opened up quite fine, though the streets were somewhat in a muddy condition. As early as 9 o'clock the members of the different companies began to assemble at the Bell Tower the place designated for the procession to start from. A few minutes after 10 o'clock everything was in readiness, the Band struck up a new March, "Kaa Wai," written in honor of the occasion by Bandmaster Berger, and the procession started. First came Sur vey Engineer John C. White, as Mar shal of the Day, followed by ten pioneers of the Department, each carrying an ax. The Royal Hawaiian Band came next, then the Fire Police, in charge of Cap tain Thos. Krouse. Behind them were Fire Marshal J. W. Maguire and Mr. Henry Smith, Secretary of the Fire De partment. Engine Company No. 1, which came next in the procession, was commanded by Foreman Robert More. The engine was drawn by two fine horses, and had been decorated under the personal super vision of -Her Royal Highness Princess Liliuokalani, who takes a great interest in this company. The flowers and ever greens were most tastily arranged, and the whole effect was unique. The Vol unteer boys of this company turned out, and their hose cart was profusely deco rated, their motto, "Onipaa," being worked in choice flowers. First Assist ant Frank Hustace marched with this company. Engine Company No. 2, in command of Foreman Chas. J. McCarthy, made a very fine display. The engine, drawn by two horses, was literally buried in flowers and evergreens. On either side was a floral arch with "1853, No. 2, 18S8," in read letters on a white ground. At the rear of the engine was a floral cab. On either side of the driver's seat was an Irish and Scotch flag. The whole get-up was exceedingly fine, and worthy of much credit. The Volunteer boys of the company had their hose cart very neatly decorated. Chief En gineer Chas. B. Wilson was in command of th;s division. Engine Company No. 4, in charge of Foreman James H. Boyd, had a large turnout of members. Their engine was also elaborately decorated, as wa? the cart of the Volunteer boys. The engine was drawn by four horses. Pacilic Hose Company No. 1 had their hose carriage out, drawn by four horses, and nicely decorated. Only seven mem bers were out the poorest showing of all the companies. Second Assistant James F. Morgan had charge of this di vision. Protection Hook and Ladder Com pany made a capital showing. Their truck was tastily decorated, and the company's motto was on either side. Chinese Engine Company No. 5 came next, and the members turned out in lanre numbers. .Their engine, drawn by two horses, was quite prettily deco rated. The line of March was about the same as announced in yesterday's Advertiser, and the parade was witnessed by a very large number of people". It was one of the finest the Department has ever held, and those who participated are to be highly congratulated. In the afternoon the different com panies assembled at their houses and pirtook of collations. At No. 4s there was an elegant spread, and the members enjoyed themselves very much. Hook and Ladder Company had their spread about noon, and a fine one it was, too. Chinese Company No. 5 met at 4 o'clock to have their lay-out, and it was a very creditable one in every respect. All the members enjoyed themselves. ENGINE COMPANY NO. 1. This company gave an elegant colla tion in its house at 2 o'clock. It was served in caterer Hart's best style and did him much credit. Foreman Robert More presided. This is Robert's fourth year, and a more popular foreman can not be named. Among the invited guests were Col. W. F. Allen, a former assistant foreman, Messrs. George Lucas, E. B. Thomas, representatives of the Advertiser, "Gazette" and "Bulletin," and officers from the other companies. After the good things had been dis posed of Foreman More proposed the health of His Majesty the Fireman Kin He called upon Col. Allen to respond. Col. Allen 6aid he was always happy to respond for His Majesty, who had taken a great interest in the fire depart ment. When a young man he was a very active fireman. The Colonel re- lated a little incident which took place when he was an assistant foreman, after which he called upon -them to drink the health of the worthy Chi of Engineer, Mr. diaries B. Wilson. (Loud cheers). Chief Engineer Wilson thanked them all for the kind favor shown. He thanked the company for its excellent showing at the parade, and said he felt proud to see so many members out. It showed they took an interest in the department, and he hopeo$the3T would continue to do so in the future. He begged to pro pose the health of their Foremai?, Mr. Robert More. Foreman More said speech-making was not his forte, but when there was any work to be done he would always be found on hand. He thanked them all for their prompt and untiring efforts in making the parade a success. As Fore man he felt proud of their showing on that day. He hoped they would do so in future. Foreman More then pro posed the toast, "The Day We Cele brate," and called upon Mr. B. Orden stein, the Secretary, to respond. Mr. Ordenstein said he felt flattered to be called upon to respond to this toast. He did not like to be called an old man. In 1853 he was first connected with fire matters in New York. A fireman's life was full of variety. There was danger and pleasure attached to it. His hap piest days had been spent while con nected with the San Francisco Fire De partment, and he had seen some very hard fires. When, he came here he could not keep out of the department, and joined it. He had tried to do his duty and wished always to remain an active private member. He would never accept anything higher than a private. The celebration to-day had been, in his mind, equal to anything seen in large cities of the Pacific Coast. They had no better apparatus there, nor better men totfight a fire. Every company should unite and obey the orders of the execu tive officer and do what was right. Sup port the executive officers, let them have a bracing aim and success would crown their efforts. At this point Bill Williams got up and proposed the health of the Reform party, but no one responded. Mr. Ordenstein proposed the health of the Assistant Engineers, Messrs. Hus tace and Morgan, calling on Delegate T. R. Lucas to respond. Delegate Lucas said he was not pres ent to respond to toasts. He thought both of the Assistants would make good Chiefs, just as good s the presen one, and 'he was as u. .- they arc uad He (the speaker) was no t ( h-maker, no politician and no fireman. The toast of the press was next pro posad and responded to in u v.jry neat speech by Mr i i Log. ditor of the saying that'they (Engine Co. No. 2had an Irish Foreman and two Scotch As sistants, and that was worse than, the smallpox. After the toasts were finished songs were introduced by the warblers of the company, which were interrupted by Mr. M. D. Monsarrat, member from Pa cific Hose, who was immediately pounced upon for a speech. He said: "We have disagreements between the several companies of the Fire Depart ment, but at the tap of the bell all dif ferences are forgotten, and Pacific Hose will then turn out as strong as any companv in the Department. The news papers have always been against us, for .it at anv time we do any good worn ai a fire the papers give us no credit for it, but if we make a mistake then they go for the Department tooth and nail. We get no salary for our work, nor any con sideration for the many suits of clothes we spoil in fighting the flames." The banquet was brought to a close by the tap of the Foreman's gavel at twentv minutes to 4 o'clock. Underwear ! Underwear!

Although one company had showed a little dissension it had been one of the best parades ever given. As Mr. Morgan resumed his seat three cheers were given. The remainder of the afternoon was spent in singing and social intercourse. The company must be congratulated upon its excellent turnout, fine collation and general arrangements. Long may Engine Company No. 1 flourish as it is now constituted. engine company no. 2. Promptly at 2 o'clock the fun at the hall of Company No. 2 commenced with a banquet. The hall was tastily deco rated with flags of different nations and evergreens. The tables groaned with the load of good things on them, pre pared by the popular caterer, Mr. Hart. The first toast, .His Majesty the King," was proposed by Foreman C. J. McCarthy, and responded to in a few fitting remarks by Mr. J. II. Hassinger. Numerous other toasts were given to the guests and members of the Hono lulu Fire Department, and were all fit tingly replied to. The health of the popular Foreman,' C. J. McCarthy, was drank amid three rousing cheers. He replied" by thanking the members for their attention. He stated that he would endeavor to keep the compan up to its present standard of excellence, and was sure that the members would always live up to their company's motto, "Our aim, the public good." ' Mr. Hassinger, in response to a toast given to the ex-Chiefs of the Honolulu Fire Department, stated that this was a little beyond the 25th anniversary of his membership in the Fire Department. He cut his speech short with the re mark, "Gentlemen, I hope you will ex cuse me, as I am too full for utterance to proceed any further." Chief Engineer C. B. Wilson, in re sponse to a toast, stated that unanimity of action was the one thing necessary for the future succeesof the organization. The rnost able support he had always received from Company No. 2, and "to them principally he owed his re-election. Though a member of No. 1, he intended always to act impartially, and would treat each company of the Department alike. Survey Engineer J. C. White was en thusiastically toasted and cheered. In reply he stated that he was asked, after tte parade was finished what that vel- low flag floating from the seat of engine No. 2 (meaning (he Scotch standard) e replied to the query by 5'- ?r2z?&KZnK O Isi mm lit lit Mx II teila wife . r V - s a f J .
