M. C. A. held their regular monthly Duslness meatlnff Izit night at the hall. A quorum being present, business- was proceeded to without farther delay. ? After the reading of the minutes by the secretary, the treasurer made a report of $615.96 received and $551.70 expended during the month of De cember, leaving a total of $64.26 in the treasury. Mv The general secretary's report was next given. The usuaT fdutme.work was carried on since the'meeing on the 6th of December; 109 business let ters relating to different matters were written. -The reading room was patronized by more people than usual, and an increase seems to be manifest from day to day. Several persons called for advice and help; thirty ap plications for work were handed in and two positions were secured. The Bible class on Sunday afternoon has fallen off considerably. Mr. Corbett thooxrht he could trace the reason for this to the Salvation Army and other nlaces of worship where the times of service conflict. The Sunday evening prayer meeting is steadily increasing. In fact, all the meetings but the one first mentioned are doing splendidly. The employment committee . re- norted a larre crowd of people con tinuallv looking for work. People came down on every boat instead of going away. , The report of the literary committee showed fifty-seven books drawn from the library during December: The reading room is not as well stored with reading matter as could be hoped for, but things are prospering. The Shipping Committee reported forty-one vessels during December. At the New Year's Day luncheon, from three to four times the number of sailors visited the Y. M. C. A. They spoke very kindly of the generous treatment they received. Mr. O. B. Ripley made the following report of the special committee on gymnasium : A meeting of the special committee on gymnasium, consisting of C. B. Ripley, chairman; C. AI. Cooke. P. C. Jones, F. J. Lowrey and Secretary Corbett, was held December 27th. Plans for an addition to tne present Y. M. C. A. building were submitted. The proposed additions will contain a gymnasium about 35 by 65 feet in size, four large new class rooms, closets, bath-rooms, lockers, and every convenience of a well equip ped gymnasium. The cost or tne pro posed additions was estimated to be about $13,000. Secretary Corbett was instructed to prepare a subscription book, and, at the next regular meeting of the asso ciation, the whole matter be referred to the association. After this report, the members pres ent were asked to examine the plans for the gymnasium. After a general discussion, it was agreed that the plans, as corrected and adopted by the committee, be adopted by the associa tion, and that bid3 be called for. Mr. Cortett stated in this connection that he thought they were perfectly safe in doing this, since he had $10,000 pledged up to date. Not a very exten sive canvass has been made. The young men in tbe different stores of the city have not been seen. It was suggested by a member present that these be left for tbe equipment of the proposed new building, S1000 being the requisite amount. It was thought by some that IIOOO would not cover all ex penses of equipment, but Mr. Corbett said he knew of a gymnasium in the East, that was larger than the pro- Eosed one, in which that sum had een sufficient. The plans displayed by Mr. Ripley show that a great deal of ingenuity has teen exercised to make the new gymnasium, and in fact the whole Y. M. C. A building a place of comfort. Tbe present building will undergo a great ujany eiug asy the room?", down aui changes, tbe main idea romuiuniesttion between Partitions will be torn moved, doors will be changed and steps removed. The gymnasium will cover the whole of tne vacant lot next to the present building and will be of the time style. Tbe floor will be three ft-t below ground, so that about seven feet of steps will have to be d-cendel from the main building before the gymna sium proper can be reached. Outside the present readiug room, and run ning up to the gymnasium which will project out to the sidewalk, will be a veranda continuous with the present landing. Another will project from the other side of the landing in front of tbe secretary's present room. After prayer by Mr. Ripley for the suecess of tbe new undertaking the meeting closed. THE GAPTAIII OF THE HALL. How a Sailnr Worked Hi3 Way Up thd Ladder.' AH ENERGETIC HAWAIIAN K1SES. Aaron Slmcrson First IT oat to Saa as Bailor, aad br Btxtdy aad HardTTcrlr Koacaos Caotaiacy Vfas Voraaoriy Uastor of Ynroo ' Islaad Sckooaors. ARON SIMERSON is a good example of what a native Hawaiian can do when he possesses energy ani a-wilL He enjoys the dis tinction of being the only native Hawaiian who is master of a sailing steamer leaving this" port. There are a number of na tives fh command of schooners, but Captain Slmerson is alone in nisi field. Ho commands the Mainland, other wise known! as the W. G. HalL Sh is the finest eteamsr owned by the Inter-Island Company, and has been under his 'charge for about three C ATTAIN AAEON SIMERSON. years. Captain Godfrey, the presi dent of the company, has implicit confidence in Captain Si merson's sea manship qualities and other points that go to make up a thorough cap tain. Many people along the front have long been familiar with the coolness displayed by the Hall's commander. When the steamer comes into port he can be seen on the upper deck with a cigar in his mouth and his right hand on the engineer's bell. He brings the steamer up to the wharf and gets her alongside with as much ease as a cox swain would land a gig. He is thor oughly acquainted with this port and all others along the Kona coast of Hawaii. As is well known, his ves sel plies between here and Punaluu. Captain Slmerson was born thirty eight years ago at Napoopoo, South Xona, Hawaii. When he was eight years of age his parents moved to Maui, where he at traded school for about four years. He went to sea first when he was about seventeen years of agt: he sailed before the mast. He was an in quisitive youth and the. captain of the schooner took enough interest in the lad to teach him navigation. The young sailor, after a year's time, was made mate and four years later he was capable of running a vessel him self. He was then made captain of tbe schooner "Jennie." He after wards took charge of both the schoon ers Prince and Llholiho. After a time Simerson was given the position of purser on the steamer Iwalani. He occupied a similar posi tion on the Planter and later when the W. G. Hall arrived fresh from the shipyard he was placed in charge of the purser's office. He acted in that capacity until he was made captain. He was considered a most obliging purser and was well-liked by all pas sengers who traveled on tbe boat. He enjoys as much, popularity at present. Captain Simerson is a married man and has three children, the eldest of whom is now 17 years of age. His family lives in town. The steamer W. G. Hall was built in 1S84 by Hall Brothers. She was named after one of the builders. She has been running to Punaluu since her advent In Hawaiian waters. She is considered a staunch craft and is popular with travelers. She will soon be fitted out with an incandecsent system. Then she will compare fav orably with any island steamer leav ing this port. - m m A Salvationist Departs. John Rice, a son of Captain Rice, left before the mast yester day on the schooner Transit. He waa a member of the Salvation Army. A number of his soldier comrades were on the wharf to bid i him good-bye.

It will not be a matter of sur- o f a w l prise n Mr. JLiatcn aoes a uttie missionary work among the viti- culturalists of California, though so far as known no instructions in the matter have been given him by the Government. From a semi-official source it was learned that Mr. Hatch would place the question oF annexation before President Cleveland and Congress,-giving them an oppor tunity to place themselves on rec ord either for or against. Should they decide against,, the Repub lican party would bave most' ex cellent campaign material; with which to go before the people in 1896. This . move, however, will undoubtedly be decided upon later in the game. 0' THE DEPUTY JAILOR RESIGNS. Two Guards Dismissed by Jailor Low for Neglecting Duty. There was a general shaking up, at the Oahu jail yesterday morning, resulting in the resignation of Dep uty Jailor Lawrence and tbe dis missal of two guards. The latter were let out for indulging in too much liquor. They are both na tives. They have not attended to their duties in a proper manner. Their places will be taken by James Delaney and G. Guinn, both white men. William Kamana will have Law rence's place. He has been cap tain of the watch since Jailor Low's incumbency. He is a faithful man, and Mr. Low is to be congratulated for having such an efficient deputy. Kamana thoroughly understands the duties of the position. He is a native, and will be valuable on that account, as all letters mutt be inspected by the jailor or his dep uty. Mr. Lawrence did not under stand the native language, so this line of duty was turned over to a third person. J. Tague, a luna, was also dismissed from the pay roll. The Cyslorama in Boston.
