JAMES COOK, Quite a Collection at Sydney that is Highly Valued. THAT PLACE HAS A MONUMENT ALSO. All Honor the Great Discoverer, AVliote Name 1 Familiar In Hawaii They Say that He Had a Deeply Religious Spirit Ills Memory Still lives. The following careiuj''-epared article on Captain Cook shows the esteem in which the fearless navi gator's memory is held down in British Colonies. The matter is from the Sydney Herald : On the 13th of May, 1S35, there died at Clapham, England, a certain Mrs. Cook, aged 94, whose name is inter woven with the history of Australa sia. Her husband was Captain James Cook, who was killed by the natives of Owyhee (Hawaii), in the Pacific ocean, on St. Valentine's Day, in the year 1779. We, in Sydney, are fairly familiar with the name of Captain Cook, but to most of us he looms through the mists of dead centuries along with the Drakes, Raleighs, Dam piers, and other mighty men of long ago. It is startling to find that his widow died less than sixty years ago. On the monument to Captain Cook, which stands in Hyde Park, Sydney, we are told the date of the birth and of the death of the famous sailor, but few of us realize how great was the man. We forget that his father was a day laborer on a Yorkshire farm, and that when James was seventeen years old lie was apprenticed to a grocer and haberdasher near Whitby. The young grocer had a mighty soul, and by sheer good conduct and pure grit he won his way from the humble haberdashery to one of the proudest places in the records of British heroes. He was one of those Who stamped the signent of their soula bo deep In art and action, and whose memories keep Their height like stars above our misty ways. The monument opposite to the Syd ney Museum serves to remind us of the bravest and most unselfish sailor men that ever sailed the sea, but the Sydney Museum has just obtained some pathetic memorials of his career, of which most of our people are as yet unaware. In the Colonial and Indian Exhibition held in London in 1866 there were exhibited a number of "Cook Relics," which attracted a great amount of attention. They were the relics of the hardy navigator who had discovered the Society Islands, who had declared the insularity of New Zealand, and sailed through the Straits now called by his name. He had explored the then unknown coasts of Australia for over 2000 miles, and be had watched the transit of Venus for the scientific men of his own land. One of the relics was an arrow from the Pacific Ocean; part of which was made from the leg-bone of the dead sailor by the savages who murdered him. Such a relic has a ghastly pathos about it that appeals decidedly to the sympathies of a wan dering race like ours, and it was no wonder that the relies attracted a large amountof attention in England. The children of the Euglish mother are scattered all the wide world over, and their adventures ap peal ever to the sympathies? of the maternal race, and our hearts respond to the words of lludyard Kipling: There dwells a wife by the Northern march, And u wealthy wife is she; She breeds a breed o' rovin' men, And ousts them over sea. Axid some they drown in deep water, And some in sight of shore. Aiid word coes back to the carline wife, And ever she sends more. Cook discovered New Caledonia and the Sandwich Islands and many another plce that is now well known. He made unto himself a name that will cever die, and the relics that have come to our Museum seem to be long to us of right, and seem, too, appropriately housed in the Museum which stands opposite to the statue of the great navigator. The boy who served his time on a north country collier has today :i right to the place of honor in Sydney. These relics were purchase! by Sir Saul Samuel during the Parker Administration, and transferred to the Syduey Mu seum by Sir George Dibbs, and are now open to the public during the reign of (Jeore K. Rei.f, ?o that they stand clear of" all party Imes, and j'et belong, as it were, to all parties, as they indeed do. Almost thn fir-t thing ' hat strikt-3 the eye is the bible that Ju sues Cook used on board hissliip, from which he read the les-0113 to his cr- This book hhows the man an upright, fear less, intensely ju-t man, with s deeply religious spirit. He may nut have been understood in hi day. but to the reader of human nature these relics have much to tell. How little his contemporaries understood him may be realized from two engravings which form part of the precious relics. One represents the fearless British sailor lighting against the savages with his clubbed musket. The other picture represents him as standing at the wat er's edge, beckoning to his boat's crew not to lire, while a savage is plunging his knife into the christian sailor s back. The latter agrees most nearly with the authentic narratives of the tragedy, and was drawn by Webber, the celebrated designer, who was em ployed by Wedgewood. The same man designed in 17S9, ten years after Cook's death, a very perfect medallion, which is now in this collection. It represents "Hope addressing Peace, Art, and Labour," and is made from clay sent to England from Sydney Cove by Sir Joseph Banks. This medallion carries us back to the very earliest days of our young colony, and suggests the deep insight Sir Joseph had of the possibilities of the young and unknown country that his friend Captain Cook had done so much for. The silver plate, the spoons, knive9 and forks from, the good ship Res olute, and the silver buckles from the sturdy captain's shoes have all a kind of significance for us, a9 if declaring the common human ity of the wonderful man, but he comes nearest to us in a little w-c V box, which was the first pres ent he ever made to the lady who af terwards became his wife, the lady who died at Clapham less than sixty years ago. As we stan J now in Col lege street Museum and gaze on these poor remainders of Captain Cook, we seem to feel more keenly than ever that he was a man like unto ourselves in all things, and that it is not a mighty gulf of time that separates us from him. There are wonderful me morials of many kinds in this collec tion, such as it is fitting should be preserved by us in our city treasury of wonders, but they possess a new in terest when we remember that the man himself was a genius, a hero of whom we have reason to be proud. He was one of the first of the great sea captains who could take his ship away for years and come back with out the scurvy! He dealt fairly and honestly by all men, even by his own crew, even by the "common sailors" who were his fellow-voyagers, and this is greater praise for Captain Cook than the most glowing account of all his mighty di&coveries. He was a man! These poor relics, his dres3 sword, his compasses, his yokelines, and the various little things that went to make up his everyday life, are very pathetic, and the autograph account of the transit of Venus is suggestive of his learning, but they are only valua ble and interesting as we know the man himself. Those who are familiar with his life's history, with the story of his boyhood and his young man hood, and his faithfulness to duty, will feel inclined to uncover their heads before these poor relics of a dead and gone day. Those who can recall his life at the grocer's counter, or on board of a "Geordie collier," will be able to ap preciate the glowing patent of a Royal title which is shown now at College street. They will see the value of the Royal Societies medal and the Admir alty medal conferred upon the son of a poor day laborer in England, and rightly read, these relics are priceless to us. It seems a pity to leave the suggestions of the relics without a word about Mrs. Cook, who died so recently. Her husband was killed in 1779, and she heard the news in 1780. The same year her son Nathaniel, 16 years of age, was drowned on the man-of-war Thunderer, which went down in a gale of wind. Three years later another son died of fever at the age of 17, and in the following year the eldest son, commander of the warship Spit fire, was driven out to sea in a small boat and drowned. Her other children had died young, and so in about four years the old lady was left widowed, childless and desolate. It was a ter rible shock to her, but the world sym pathized with her, and King George III gave her a pension of 200 a year. She lived for 50 years after her hus band's death, and seems to bind our own day to the day that appears so far, far away. The relics that have come to us now are full of teaching power and full of significance, for they recall the name of the great and good sea-captain, and show what is possible to dauntless courage and the faithful discharge of the humblest duty, and they tell to all of a man who, "though dead, yet speaketh." R. M. BLIGHT AND RATS. Active Enemies to Coffee Culture in South Kona. A citizen who returned by the Hall brought the surprising report that in South Kona, there was a new blight that fed cn the lady bug. This account was laid before Mr. Marsden at once. Said he: "That is simply rediculous. There may be a blight that resists a certain kind of lady bug, but blight feeds on leaves and branches and fruit only. The lady bug of certain varities has its enemies but they have not yet been discovered a blight which did not disappear before some kind of lady bug. Some absurd people have suggested that the blight destroyers will become a pest. Their food is blight and when that is gone they are pan." One of the coffee planters has sent to Honolulu a requisition for rat dogs. He writes of a new species of rat, that is very destructive to coffee plants. It kills the new shoots. Many trees of good growth have been girdled. The Daily Advertiser 75 cents a month. MARSHAL HITCHCOCK'S AXE, It Decends on the Neck of the , Mounted Patrol Captain. KLEMME HAS BEEN DETHRONED. Summarily Discharged Ilia Superiors Bad Iost Confidence in II I m Was Distrusted Has liren Talking Too Much He Had a Good Thing. Emperor Klemme has beep throned. Czar Carl is now an ary citizen of the country, been emperor-czar only in J The axe fell Saturday, and 1 Cordes is acting captain of t ed police. rtTMifr There is much to be saidil H'iVlt said about the setting of th sun. The first fact, in plali is that Klemme was sumn charged. The reason is, th. perlors lost confidence in him ; distrusted. For a long time he f been on the list with other suspects. The charges against suspects vary from plotting treason to insubordina tion, inefficiency and neglect of duty. There are several theories about Klemme. Some say that his mouth ran away with him. Others suggest that a disease which usually attacks the feet and causes them to swell, made a raid on Klemme's head. The man has manifested, in many ways, the most extravagant exaggeration of his own importance. His idea was that the best gifts of the gods should be showered into his lap. He had the belief that Klemme was a sort of king-bolt. This is an article without which a band-wagon will come to grief. As captain of the mounted patrol, Klemme had a very fair billet. The salary was $135 a month. There were probably some perquisites with the place. He had first ten, then seven, men in his squad. The duties were not arduous. Klemme, after being on watch all night, was usually down town by 10 In the morning. The ex-captain has been quite actiye in politics, but the department took no cognizance of this. He was at the head of the original Schuetzen club. This organization split and the captain started another. The mother body re mained in charge of Harry Klemme. This one has been disbanded. Last week the talk was that there would be one strong club with Capt. Klemme as its president. For a time it was re ported that feeling between the two clubs was bitter, but as HarryKlemme, remarked: "Blood is thicker than water." Capt. Klemme and Lieut. Cordes were lately fined in circuit court for assaulting one Muller. This man has been writing about Klemme in one of the evening papers. It was while Capt. Klemme was at the head of the Schuetzen club that the notor ious suppressed resolutions were sent to the Councils. They were returned, and the authors sharply reprimanded. Klemme has not asked why he was discharged. The authorities do not give out details and Klemme only growls. At times he has been very saucy. He is reported to have made the most astounding remarks on the head of his ability to control or direct Governmental affairs. It was Klemme who was mixed up by gossip in the dynamite scare of la-t year. They say, too, that the cock and bull stories he has carried to the station house had material for 'steeu dime novels. Lately Klemme has been watched, and it is said that his associates, to gether with his alleged utterances, led to the parting. In relegating Klemme to private life his superiors took full account of his services. He was one of the men who turned out January 17, 1S93. He has been in service ever since. Captain Klemme came to Hawaii direct from Germany. He led a strike on one of the plantations and they had quite a nasty time with him and his followers. There is very little sy m patby around town for Klemme. He has been too self-important. - Knights of Pythias. Negotiations have been under way for eome time with the pur pose of consolidating two of the Pythian lodges of the islands. These are Mystic No. 2 of this city and Kealia No. 5 of Kauai. The latter has a membership that is widely separated and it has been difficult. Otherwise it is in good circumstances, having earnest members and ample funds. It is planned to have the Kealia knights become members of Mystic. The two lodges will meet at Mystic's hall this evening at 5 o'clock. For the business at hand a quorum of KeaHa has come to this citv. Advertises 75 cents a month.
