J. Jansen, the second mate on the bark Hesper, has gone to San Fran cisco. He left Tuesday on the bark- entine Planter. Jansen was considered a jay of the jayest kind, and Captain Sodergren is glad to be rid of him. He did not know very much, and on the trip was the victim of many prac tical jokes in consequence. The crew say that the first mate painted his face one day with lampblack, and Jansen, who is a big, burly fellow, did not resent the outrage. John Gray and John Jacobson, two members of the Hesperus crew, have been discharged from the ship and are now walking about Honolulu. Both of them, along with four others, were taken to the reef for refusing to work on the vessel. They wanted shore leave, but claimed that the captain would not grant their request. The men were kept at the jail until four of them gave in on account of the food. They claimed that they could not eat salt salmon and poi, and pre ferred work to eating these two arti cles of food. Captain Sodergren called on the men the other day and told them that if they would not return to work, he would hire bands at their expense. When the vessel left they would be taken on board in irons; and then it would be a case of either work or starve. He finished up by saying that they would be given ninety days at the end of the voyage. The men did not like the prospects, and four of them returned to work. The remain ing two held out, and were discharged by Consul Mills. T. W. C. T. U. License and no license presents the following contrast in Pittsfield, Maw. Under license there were five hundred and two arrests for drunk enness and assaults in six months. During the same length of time under no license there wero one hundred and ninety arrests. Prof. Clifford Albutt, of Cambridge University, England, in testifying before a British commission to in vestigate drunkenness and its treat ment, said: "The curions thing about drunkenness is that it is gen erally hereditary in that particular form as drunkenness. Drunkenness generally comes in the same form and manifestations; it ap pears not merely as a general tend ency to insanity, but as a special form of it." He also adds that pub lic opinion, education, physiology, and so on, are having such a strong effect that the thing will die out of itself in a large measure. Would this were true! c The captain of the Falcon, Lieu tenant Peary's vessel, told this story recently to a newspaper reporter. "A distinguished passenger on an ocean steamer took the liberty to eject not only the tobacco juice, but the 'quid' itself on the immaculately clean quarter-deck. 'All bands on deck with marlin spikes, shovels and brooms.' shouted the chief officer! The order was immediatly obeyed by all the men of the watch and the ungentlemanly gentleman given a rebuke for bis lack 01 good manners. Dr. Seaver, professor of athletics and physician of Yale College, pub lished about two years ago statistics which he had been engaged for eight years in making. As a result of these investigations, he finds that the fetudents of Yale College who indulge in tobacco smoking have much less physical strength and brain power than those who do not. Through his efforts the use of tobacco is decreasing among the Yale students. It is said that no tobaccD user ha9 Saduated at the head of his class in arvard.
