B. M. S. Cormorant men antici pate a regatta with crews of other ves sels of the squadron when they arrive. Perhaps two or three foreign warships may be in port to enliven the annual regatta on the King's birthday. The men's temperance meeting in Brewer's block on Saturday evening was well attended, and ably addressed by Chief Justice Judd, Rev. H. H. Gowen, Dr. J. M. AVrhitney, and Messrs. P. C. Jones, S. D. Fuller and T. G. Gribble. Mr. L. J. Levey's sale of valuable horses and carriages, which was to have been held to-day, is unavoidably post poned until Thursday next at noon. The list of animals and vehicles is well worth attention from all who require anything in either line. The Anglican Church Chronicle for October deals in editorial and corre spondence with Cathedral finances. The editor is gratified at the scheme ot a home for the indigent foreigner. Church news' and other departments of the paper are well-filled. The contribution on "The Genesis of Haleakala," should have been signed "M. B.," instead of Rev. Mr. Gulick's name. That gentleman only wrote an introductory paragraph, but the author's name being written sideways on the margin of the manuscript made the mis take easy. INSIDK THE CENTRAL. Plant of the Mutual Telephone Com pany The Latest Improvements. Many people who use the telephone may have no idea of the amount of costly plant required to equip a first-class "Cen tral." Hon. A. Jaeger the other day took our reporter through the Mutual Telephone Company's central office, in order to illustrate an incidental conver sation. Within a few months past a splendid switchboard has superseded the tolerably good one with which the com pany started. The new one is the Law multiple switchboard, with room for a thousand subscribers wanting only about 400 of that number now and steadily increasing and by a system of switches can be divided between twelve operators, each of whom can have control of all the numbers if necessary. Two operators were attending to the work on this occasion, one of whom by shifting a small lever could, first, take all the labor upon himself; secondly, divide it with his mate, and, thirdly, make every call ring a bell. . The perforations .for inserting the con ducting pins at the ends of the wires are numbered at right angles, units one way and tens the other, making great econo my of space as well as being very con venient. On the wall is an automatic fire alarm, whereby a signal of fire is .conveyed simultaneously to a whole host 'of firemen, engineers, etc., of the Fire Department. . . The company is up with the latest in ventions in telephony and determined to keep so, while Mr. J. W. Pratt, superin tendent, is prompt in attending to all complaints of instruments going wrong with subscribers. It is worth seeing the vast web of wires- where they converge before entering the operating room the slender strands all numbered which bear such a tremendous burden oi private ami public business, and friendly intercourse and gossip, every day of the year and hour of the dav and night, and keep their secrets profoundly except, like some human beings, when they are "crossed. m THE JURY rANEL. THE ENGINE COMPETITION. An Exciting Kace-Quick Time Made by Both ComPanieSNo. 1 Gets First Water. Nature of the Objection Raised-Consequences if it rrevails. The objection to the jury panel, argued pro and con Saturday, is that it was drawn by the First Deputy, instead of the Chief Clerk as the law directs. The Court invited Messrs. Hartwell and Smith to reply to the Attorney-General in the argument. The Attorney-General in his closing speech mentioned that Mr. Smith was the mover in the Legislature in getting the provision in question in serted, tafcs Ta v"T? to irrjprer upon th3 Hoarse thai. io iets important a functionary than the chief clerk should be charged with such a weighty func tion. The result cf tho objection being sustained will be that no y-ity trial can be held this term. For half an hour before the signal at five o'clock on Saturday. Honolulu En gine Company No. 1 and Mechanic Engine Company No. 2 were all readvin their respective fire stations. The pre viously agreed upon two taps on the Tower bell had the effect of hurling mem, as n iroma cannon, out on the street and away for the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Company's wharf. Mechanic engine, stationed at the Bell Tower, had horses harnessed to its pole. Honolulu engine, located on King above Alakea street, had towage of two saddle horses with lariats. The Honolulus were determined to reach Fort street before the Mechanics crossed King, and the latter were resolved that the former should get left at that point. Quicker than it can be told the Me chanics rattled past King street, giving the Honolulus about fifty yards' distance in their rear. Both engines were vomiting flame and smoke of petroleum soaked fuel from their funnels, and the din was terrific as a host of carriages and horse and foot closed in upon their wake. Robt. More, foreman, ami Pat. Hughes, engineer, of No. 1, and John Lucas, foreman, and Ed. Hopkins, engineer, of No. 2, were on their respective naming machines with a force of firemen in each case. Mechanic engine was about 20 seconds ahead of Honolulu engine in reaching the wharf. Before the machine was in position, the men of No. 2 had the stipu lated 300 feet of hose laid. This was only three minutes from the tap of the bell, and twenty-five seconds later the men of No. 1 had their hose laid. The nozzles reached a point about opposite the Harbor Master's office on F'ort street. Then came the intense excitement of waiting to see who should get first water, which had to be got by suction from the harbor. An ominous gurgle in No. hose preceding the water by a second or two made the hosemen of that company cheer vociferously. At exactly seven minutes after the alarm, Hono lulu, No. 1, won the competition by throwing first water, which was a fine working stream when thirty seconds later the hose of Mechanic, No. 2, began to spout. Two splendid streams from inch noz zles were soon playing straight up in the air. No. 1 had begun to play with fifteen pounds of steam, No. 2 with eighteen pounds. In eleven minutes No. 1 had eighty-five pounds of steam, and No. 2 had sixty pounds. No. 1 had about an inch and a half of water in the boiler when the fire was kindled, while No. 2 had four inches of water and can not safely work with less. After playing for a few minutes No. 1 engine began priming, and the foreman having to leave to get his foot doctored gave orders to cease working. No. 2 continued pumping for some time, and her foreman exclaimed triumphantly? "See our engine stop ready for action, and theirs is played out !" In the terrific race there were some accidents. Foreman More had his boot take fire after being wet with petro leum from the bunker, and was severely burned in the foot before the wharf was reached. He had the choice between taking the scorching, stopping and losing the race, or jumping off to probable death. His conduct in accepting the first was rather heroic. Louis Tous saint of No. 1 was steering the hose reel, and the tonsrue swinging round knocked him off. The wheel of the reel passed over his foot, severely bruising the ankle, and he was sent off in a hack to a doctor. A native fireman of the same comuanv was flung to the ground in turning at the wharf, but picked himself up so quickly that nobody bothered to ask him if he was hurt. TTmi W. F. Allen and Mr. C. O. Berger were judges of the competition. Foreman More savs No. 1 is ready for any fire company in the Kingdom for hose-laying or getting first water. Fore man Lucas says No. 2 is ready for another contest, but with a half mile run, any time. SPECIAL. BUSINESS ITEMS. t thp npw sanrmle Hats and Bonnets now open at Sachs' store, 104 F'ort street.
