In the history of Honolulu seldom
has there been seen a larger crowd on
the Oceanic wharf than assembled
Saturday afternoon. The facta that it
was a half holiday, a more than ordi
narily beautiful afternoon and that it
is the proper thing to see the steamer
off, combined with the departure of
eleven of the self constituted exiles,
all contributed towards this. No
where in the wide world could such a
sight have been seen bat in this city,
no other steamer ever starts under
such favorable auspices as does the
Australia. The wealth and beauty of
Honolulu turned out in its best clothes

on foot and in carriages, the vendors
of flowers were as persistent as ever.
although trade was livelier than usual
with them, the band played its best
and everyone seemed good natured
and happy, even the exiles themselves.
Some few had feared that some kind
of demonstration would be made at
the wharf by the friends of those who
were leaving their country for their
country's good, but nothing or the
kind was attempted. They spent their
enthusiasm in purchasing Jeis with
which to decorate the exiles, in hearty
handshakes and alohas lor the future.
The political prisoners who were
given passports from the Foreign
office Instead of obtaining them in
the usual way at the Custom-house
were eleven in number: John Badin,
James Brown, Fred wundenberg,
Charles Creighton, A. P. Peterson, F.
H. Redward, P. G. Camarinos, A Car-
rianne. Arthur white, 1? rank Moneck
and Nick Peterson, the latter deciding
to eo at the last minute.
Charles Creighton was interviewed
by an Advertiser, reporter a few
minutes before his departure and
In answer to the question why
he made up his mind to leave the
"Anything was preferable to the
life we had to live at the prison; not
that we had anything in particular to
comDlain or in the way or rooa or
accommodations, which were all we
could expect, and Mr. Low made it
as pleasant as be could for us consist-
entlv with his duty as jailor. But
you don't know what six weeks
almost solitary confinement will do for
a man. Mind you we were only
allowed four hours exercise in the
yard out of the twenty-four. But the
weariness of that cell life is indescrib
able. It puts a man in that mental
condition that he would do anything,
say anything, sign anything, even to
signing away his own life, to get away
from it and out in the free air again.''
"By the way, Mr. Creighton," said
the reporter, "how about that docu
ment you signed to procure your free
d&m? Have you a copy of it?"
"No, I have not. We were not al
lowed to take copies, although I asked
"Can you give me the substance
"As near as I can remember, it was
in these words, and being a lawyer
and the document a short one I think
it is about as near right as memory
can make it:
"Whereas, the undersigned, Charles
L. Creighton, a resident of Honolulu,
Island of Oahu, is now confined in
Oabu jail upon the charge of compli
city in the recent rebellion; and
"Whereas, the said Charles I
Creighton is desirous of leaving the
Islands of Hawaii on or before Febru
ary 23d, 1S05;
"Now, therefore, permission in here
by given the said Charles L. Creigh
ton to do so, upon the condition that
he does so leave on or before said date
at his own expense and without re
course on the Republic of Hawaii. It
is further agreed that during the ab
sence of said Creighton from the Re
public no charge arising out of his
complicity in the late rebellion will
be made against him by or for the
Republic, and that the period of such
absence shall be entirely at the pleas
ure of the Minister of Foreign Affairs
of said Republic."
About this time the last whistle
blew and bidding aloha to Mr.
CreigLton and his friends the reporter
sought the dock.
In casting off from the wharf, the
sudden tightening of the bow line of
the steamer from the steam winch
knocked down a little boy who was
too close to it. In falling the boy
grazed his cheek on the wharf so that
the blood flowed. This so scared the
youDg lady who was with him that
t-he fainted. She was sdou revived,
however, and t-eut home.

That Its Owner
On Saturday afternoon Jailor
Low received an elegant cane, ac
companied by the following letter,
which explains itself:
Honolulu, Feb. 23, 1695.
J. A. Low. Esn.
Tnis little memento Is presented to
you by your friends who lately so
journed with you, as a mark of their
individual good will toward you for
the many little acts of kindness re
ceived at your hands during the trying
times and under the circumstances in
which we were all placed; we wish you
to consider this entirely a personal
matter, and no other significance is to
be attached thereto.
P. G. Camarinos,
T. W. Rawlins,
J. S. Walker,
The cane is made out of the most
elegant piece of Kauwila wood that
could be found on the island, the
ferule being in Bilver and the handle
mounted in gold with the following
inscription : "J. A. Low, from his
friends, Honolulu, Feb. 23, '25."
It is one of the most elegant canes
ever made in the islands and cost
There is a history connected
with this cane that should make it
doubly valuable in the eyes of its
fortunate owner. It was originally I
made by the order of the Hui Aloha
Aina and designed as a present to
James H. Blount on his departure
from the islands. That gentleman
refused to accept it or any other
present, or even to allow Mrs.
Blount to receive one from the same
society. The cane remained on the
Jeweler's hands until yesterday,
when it was presented to Mr. Low.
Mcdowell still here.
The Captain of tho Warrimoo
Wants No More Exiles.
Archie McDowell made every
preparation to leave on the Warri
moo yesterday, but he is still here.
He had his trunk packed, said
good-bye to his numerous friends
and went down to the wharf and
even tried to go aboard. There
were two things, however, which
prevented his departure for Suva,
Fiji, his destination. One of these
was that he had failed to provide
himself with a ticket, rather a
necessary requisite on that elegant
vesBel, and the other was that
Captain Bird most emphatically
refused to take him, ticket or not.
'I want no more exiles aboard my
ship," said Captain Bird, "I had
to give $150,000 bonds on account
of the last three I took from here
before the ship could leave Van
couver. No more exiles in mine."
Mr. McDowell says he is entirel-
penniless and unable to purchase a
ticket anywhere. He is willing to
leave if the authorities will s.nd
him away and will keep his t unk
packed for that purpose. If Mar
shal Hitchcock does not tae him
to his hotel in the meantime he
proposes to call on Commissioner
Hawes in the morning r.nu ash. ma
assistance in the matter. He says
be fully expected that '.he authori
ties, knowing his poverty,
