L . . . .. the older Spreckels and annexation that's different. The Bulletin declares that the ball at tho executive building was I not the success it 13 reported to be l and that it is not to be compared with royalist demonstrations of the same character in "years under the monarchy." Well I Well I that's nniteso: shall we relate some of i -e ii. ; I tne UOluga ui me iim-iiauiD u i tho balls given under the mon archy? Well, no; perhaps the veil had better be drawn for fear of injuring the feelings of a "small f.otPTii" who "are not leaders in this community" at present. The royalists aro at present in dulging in a repetition of figures relating to the proportion of Amer icans in Hawaii, which are quite likely to kick backward, as most royalist figures do. We call nfontinn to the fact that the 4AbbW&AW&V ' item " Hawaiian - born foreign ers" includes about two-thirds Americans, who, if added to the al leged American contingent of 192S, will make quite a respectable show ing both in present politics and fu ture taxes. Mr. Marques is a poor politician, and as a diplomat will scarcely cast a shadow. The Boston left the harbor yes terday afternoon, after a stay of thirteen months and two days in this harbor. She was welcomed here as the third of the white squad ron, and, with the Charleston and San Francisco, has made a name in Hawaiian history. While the Boston has in no way violated the courtesies of international law, as alleged by the royalists of Hawaii, she has at the same time been prompt and efficient in protecting American life and property here. In so doing both her offcers and crew have incurred the ill-will of the monarchy and its supporters, and consequently the Boston carries away with her the ill-will of all those who oppose American interests in Hawaii. The position of the Provisional governme t in the present situation not to hide its light un- hould ho. der a bushel. There is but one position for it to take, and that is to uphold the political principles set forth in the nroclaraation of last January. The taxpayers and annexationists of Hawaii, who represent the "wealth and intelli gence" of the islands, are firmly united upon the proposition to bet ter the condition of the country both financially and politically, and there is not a doubt this re solve will be carried out, if it takes aU eam?ei a3 a Pro'erbial Ameri- IN SHALL PACK A G2JS.

In Male Attire She Served as a British Marine With Credit, There have been many woman warriors in the world, but it must be admitted that there have been very few whose deeds were such as to claim the admiration ot the ronntrv for anv great length of time. j In the annals of woman s warfare there are generally stories - 4 mf rf nTfor.Tftnl Ancnoco 1 AO ri i r rr f c n- naticism and subsequent punish- ment and disgrace, beldom, in deed, has a woman warrior been gratefully recognized by the gov ernment of her country. Within the memory of our grand parents there lived in England a woman named Hannah Snell, who, when but a girl, took the strange - W ' " resolution of enlisting as a soldier. She served as a marine on one of the vessels of a fleet bound to the West Indies, and showed so much courage that she was repeatedly promoted. Her sex was unknown, and therefore it could never be claimed that Hannah Snell's sue cess was due to partiality or favor itism. Once, when dangerously wounded, she extracted the ball herself, fearing that she might be discovered and discharged. After long service she returned to her native iome at Worcester. Eng land, where her adventures soou became spread abroad. The gov ernment, on investigation of her really great career, granted a pen sion of 20. She died full of years nnrl lfidpn with honors at an inn near Wapping.

The Vesfel Accompanied to e by IXouoIala Citliens on Board the Tag Eleu, The announcement in these col umns yesterday that the U. S. S. Boston would sail at 1 :30 p.m. for ban rrancisco urew an immense crowd to the water front to witness the departure of the vessel. Shortly after 1 o'clock the white cruiser began preparations for leaving, but owing to one of the anchor chains j i ' r 1 !iL t. L. Zl getting foul with the ram, it was nearly half-past 2 o'clock before the vessel was ready to steam out of the harbor. Some time before the Boston got under way, the tug Eleu, with Messrs. Captain King, W. O. Smith, G. K. Wilder and wife, Dr. Rodgers, C. Hammer, W. C. Wilder, Jr., Luther Wilcox, Captain Good, Colonel Soper, F. S. Dodge, Misses Berger and Holland, P. M. Maher, of the San Francisco City Argus, . . ... Capt. Camara, Chief Justice Judd, Mninr Ci. fJ. Pnt.ter. Cantain Ilueh - - x - 1 C 1 L uunn, a numoer 01 uiuer gentle men, me Hawaiian oanu, aim re presentatives of the Star and Ad vertiser, cruised around the har bor in close proximity to the war ship. During the intervening pe riod before the Boston was ready to sail, the band played a number to sail, the band played a number 0f patriotic American airs. Several anuronnate selections were ren dered by the bands of the Phila delphia and Boston. A large Hawaiian hag was hying from the stern of the tug, and the American ensign at the bow. At the moment the Boston steamed out cheers upon cheers were given by the sailors on the Philadelphia and Adams, which were lustily returned by the de parting crew. Reviving to one of the cheer3 the sailors of the Boston rtoaorl la?i ix?Vifo rlnilr Vinta into the air, a number of them falling in the water. This is in keeping with the usual American custom. The hats were eagerly sought for and picked up by native boatmen and boys in swimming. As the Boston was croi As the Boston was going out the j tugsteamed alongside, near enough for those on board to exchange greetings and say goodbyes to the officers and crew. The tug accom panied the vessel out to sea, going some distance beyond the bell buoy. During the passage out rrotessor Berger's musicians played Ameri can and Hawaiian airs almost con tinually, the fife and drum band on the Boston returning the compli ment whenever a lull occurred. Several salutes were given by the tug and replied to by the departing warenip. . When the time arrived lor the tug to return, a parting salute ot three loud and long whistles was given, and the compliment re turned in a liKe manner by the Boston. While the Hawaiian band was playing "The Star Spangled Banner" the last adieus were ex changed, and with the strains of this grand old patriotic American air ringing in their ear3 and the waving of hats and handkerchiefs 7 the Boston proceeded on her jour ney to the coast. A most delightful trip was made by the tug, the staunch vessel rid ing the mighty swell of the Pa cific like a canvass back, giving a much enjoyed zest to the passage.

During the trip out Lieutenant Lucien Young lost his for-and-aft tile, dropping it overboard while engaged in waving his farewells. The Boston was loaded to her water line and very correctly trim med. She carried some seventy five tons of coal on deck. A long homeward bound pennant was flying from the mainmast. Not withstanding the fact that the bot tom of the Boston i3 considerably fouled by marine growth, it is thought she will make a fair rate of speed over. Hundreds of people witnessed the departure of the Boston, the wharves and vesesls alongside being lined with spectators. All ships in the harbor dipped their flags and ran them up to the masthead in honor of the departure of the white cruiser; no distinc tion being made. The British en sign floated proudly tD the breeze over the ship Darra the only Brit ish vessel in the harbor at the time except the Oceanic. House flags of the Inter-Island and Wilder' steamship companies were also fly ing. The Mikahala was passed on the outward journey, and that ves sel saluted by dipping the Hawai ian ensign. The four-masted schoon er Americana, which was anchored ofT the harbor, extended the usual courtesy. The Boston duly ac knowledged and returned the cour tesies in a proper manner. Taken as a whole yesterday's farewell to the Boston was in every sense an appropriate and becoming one. m The Hawksdale Ship Company, limited, has been formed at Liver pool with a capital of 16,000, in 250 shares, to acquire the sailing ship Hawksdale, now on the way from Antwerp to Portland, to equip, sell, mortgage, or otherwise dis pose, repair, work and trade with the said ship and to carry in all its branches the business of a ship owner.
