THE PACIFIC C030IERCIAI, ADVERTISER: HQyOLUIAJ, NOVEMBER 7, 1S94.
G , i A WICKED - LOOKING CRAFT, The French Warship Trouin Leave this Afternoon. to A VESSEL WITH UGLY RAM. She 1 liouod fur .lapau to Keitiforre the f-'rrncli Squadron An C11 V(l that IVoaltl Make It Very Warm far au Y.neinj at I Ouartern. The French warship Duguay Trouin, Captain Courrijolles, will leave for Japan thi3 afternoon at 3 o'clock, after remaining five days in port. During her stay she has taken in a heavy supply of coal and provisions. The Trouin is a com posite cruiser of the second class, large and wicked-looking, with a eharp prow projecting twenty feet from a line with her stem. But ehe is not so terrihle as she looks, being by no means a new vessel, and she is not fitted with the lat est fighting appliances, except her guns, which are modern, breech loaders, mounted on her main deck in sponsors. There are five big guns of G THE WICKED-LOOKING inches caliber, two on each side and one placed in a rather peculiar position under the forecastle deck, where it is intended shall be used after the fashion of an old-time "bow-chaser." An advantage is gained by having the gun thus mounted, when the Trouin is ram ming an enemy, the cruiser's for ward gun-crew being able to keep up a rapid fire while steaming upon their marine victim. Painted a neutral grey, lying anm arpVi n f Vi T r Vi rtif r f n?o for n nrl Tfflth a portion of her powerful ram showing plainly, the visitor pre eents a great contrast to the fa miliar black hulls of the British fleet. Her color, useful in war, gives her a dingy appearance at a distance, which greatly belies the natty, trim cleanliness of her decks and guns. Everything about her is beautifully kept, and her crew are as smart, likely-looking fellows as one would wish to see. Between decks the Trouin lacks many of the trim, light adjuncts to a modern ship of the line. Her officers' quarters are very limited for space, and are by no means luxurious, though they are un doubtedly comfortable. The berth deck is low, and one must bow his head in passing over it. This deck i3 utilized as a sort of a general armory, rifles being kept in racks both forward and aft, entirely un like the arrangements for small arms planned for a cruiser of ?94. The Trouin steers from an ordin ary pilot-house built on the forward part of the superstructure. The gear is operated by steam and also by hand from this place ; but there is no supplementary steering appa ratus below the water line in case the pilot-house was shot away dur ing action. The conning-tower is not known on the Trouin. There is no lack of rapid-fire cannon and machine guns on the Frenchman. She could make it pretty warm for an enemy at close quarters. The Trouin is a second-class cruiser of 3500 tons. She was built in France in 1S77. She i3 29G feet in length, 43 feet beam, and 17 feet depth of hold. Her displacement is 3525 tons, and speed 1G knots. In addition to her battery of heavy guns and rapid-fire cannon she is supplied with two torpedo-tubes. She take3 her name from the famous old French Admiral who distinguished himself in the seven teenth century against the Dutch and English. The Duguay-Trouin has a crew of 3G0 officers and men, her officers being : Captain Courri jolles, Commander Auvert, Flag Lieutenant Delaruelle ; Lieuten ants de Montbrun, Caron, de Cez eneuve, de Paramom, Blane ; Pay- AN master de Gonuecourt, Surgeon Ilerve, Chief Engineer Pierregues ; Midshipmen Brylinski, de Pianelli, Perierguere, Kougier, Lecamus, Salmon and Mullenheim. A FEW THOUSAND YEARS. Cycles Are Slow, But Theosophists Recognize Them. Mrs. Thirds held in her lecture last night that the universal ten dency of everything wa3 to com plete a cycle of manifestation, re turning eventually to the point from which it originally started. This is the law of periodicity, of mani festation and non-manifestation, and is observable everywhere, in the universe a3 well as in man, and on all planes. But it does not return to exactly the same point it started from, nor in exactly the same conditions, but, like a spiral, it lifts itself a little higher, for everything is evolving. We speak, she said, of a daily cycle, a weekly, monthly and year ly cycle, and science has just ac cepted the great Siderial cycle, whichTheosophists have recognized from time immemorial, and assert that it lasts a little longer than 25,800 years. By this Siderial cy cle an explanation is given for the glacial periods, for the alteration of the poles of our earth, which brought about the great changes of ciimate. At the beginning and the end of DUG U AY TROUIN. the great cycles generally, declared the lecturer, cataclyms, etc., occur which are caused by Karma, a law which rules not only man, but every atom of as matter well. A cycle of peculiar interest at present, accord ing to Theosophists, is that of the first five thousand years of Kali Yuga, cr "The Iron Age," which will end between 1897 and 1S9S. It i3 predicted that the end of this cycle will be preceded or followed by great changes, political, ecien BEFORE THE COURTS. A Number of Unimportant Cases Disposed of Yesterday. Eight cases were disposed of yes terday in the Circuit Court, and out of the number mentioned not a conviction was had. In the cases of Kauhane, charged with gam bling, and Kahakauila and Kili kina, charged with adultery, the jury in each case acquitted them. In the following cases the appeals were withdrawn and the fines paid : J. Davis, assault and battery ; Peter Davis, same charge ; Eli Kekipi, adultery; and Fook Tai, charged with gambling. The charge of larceny against James Kukona was dismissed. By an order from Judge Whiting the charge of gambling against Ah Kau was stricken from the calendar. Kau and another Chinese named Hang Fook were convicted at the last term of the Circuit Court and on the recommendation of the jury for mercy, sentence was suspended in his case. Fook was sentenced to eighteen months imprisonment and to pay a fine of $G00. In ths latter's case the attorney's have moved for a writ of error. W. F. Allen, guardian of Walter, Rose and Leonore Opfergelt, min ors, has been ordered by Judge Whiting to dispose of their property in Honolulu. The land is situated at Pauoa and will be sold at auc tion, the upset price to be .$500. Death of an Estimable Woman. Keliihoohuli died in Honolulu on November 4th, and on that day her funeral took place, and she was buried in the Kawaiahao Church grave yard. She was born in Pahoehoe, North Kona, at the time Kaahumanu made the tour of Hawaii. Her father was Kakao, and her mother was Kalaunui, of Hilo Kaipo. She married Kana ina, and one of her daughters is Mrs. J. L. Kaulukou. She was one of the old stock of natives, and a most estimable woman. AT THE PLAY. . A Splendid Presentation of a Strong Comedy-Drama. There wa3 a fine audience last night for Dailey's superb produc tion of the beautiful American comedy-drama, "The Henrietta." A number of the steady theater goers said that the company had fairly excelled itself. The troupe scored a genuine triumph. The story is an interesting one, and abounds in strong situations. Mr. Dailey put forth his best efforts in mounting 14 The Henrietta." The drawing-room scene was artistic and rich, and the broker's office wa3 a faithful picture. Mortimer Snow gave a finished rendition of Bertie the lamb. R. Scott did full justice to the broker. Jean Weiner was careful and cap able as the physician. Al Hallett handled the scheming young Na poleon satisfactorily. Louis Bel mour was a typical parson. P. A. Nannery was a regular scheming broker, and Mr. Dailey did some good acting as the confidential clerk. John Howard did the Eng lish lord cleverly. Mis3 Dalgleish was particularly effective in an emotional scene. Kittie Belmour was an interesting widow, and Miss Nannary was delightful as the in genue. Miss Stockmeyer was a proper American girl. The ladies wore some fine dresses. " Held by the Enemy," a mili tary play, on Thursday evening. W. jr. Baker North Pembroke, Mass.
