THE GAYHEAD'S SAILORS.
Released From Jail
The three sailcra of lh Gay
head who were arrested the other
day on suspicion of having fret their
vessel on fire, were released today
and eent back aboard the whaler,
which is docked at the Mail wharf.
On arriving at their destination
they were told to get to work im
mediately with the remainder of
the crew, but they .refused abso
lutely to do a stroke. While the
other men were hard at work on
the casks of provisions taken from
the vessel, the three liberated sus
pects enjoyed their pipes in a very
comfortable manner. The reason
for their refueal to work was asked,
but the only answer received was
to the effect that the captain bad
better see the American consul.
The men put on a very insolent
manner and acted in a most high
handed way when approached by
any oi tne otneers. it is very
probable, however, that the men
will have to get to work today
When seen yesterday they were
very neatly dressed and looked as
if they had enjoyed their jail expe
In a conversation with some o
the sailors today, among whom
was an Hawaiian from this island
it seemed to bo the general opin
ion that tho three men are not
what might be called perfectly
" etraicht. " It eeems that the
three have been in the habit o
conversing tcgetner at various
times, ana always wnen no one
was near enough to catch any o
'I do not understand," said one
of the men, "why these three fel
lows were always together, and, if
they did set the vessel afire, I can
not see their reason, for we have
always been treated well by the
ollicers : in fact, we like it here.
It is a fact worthy of notice that,
although the Gayhead has been
alongside the Mail wharf since
Fridav night, not an attempt to get
away has been made on the part of
any of the crew.
PORTUGUESE ON THE WA
Nine Uncdred or More Expected
Early Next Month.
The result of Minister Thurston's
efforts in tho matter of encouraging
Portuguese immigration will be
come apparent much sooner than
is generally expected. Tho German
steamer Braunfels is now on the
way from the Azores with about COO
able-bodied Portuguese, who are
coming to work on 6ugar planta
tions under the terms agreed on by
Mr. Thurston and representatives
of .the Portuguese Government.
Many of theso are bringing their
families with them, which will
bring the total number of those
now on the way to about 900 rouls.
The Boards of Health and Im
migration are already making ar
rangements for the reception of this
large addition to the population of
the islands, but are in somewhat
of a quandary where to put them,
many of the old buildings formerly
used by the Immigration Depart
ment for such purposes having been
rented to native tenants. It is
more than likely that special ac
commodations will be arranged for
them at the Quarantine Station,
although they cannot be regularly
quarantined unless some infectious
disease should have broken out on
the voyage. The Braunfels left
the Azores on February Gib, and is
expected to make tho passage in
about sixty days.
Trouble Among Chinese.
There was a rumor afloat yester
day that the two Chinese hiph
binders' societies, supposed to exist
in this city, were going to have
trouble last night. A watch was
kept on what was supposed to be
the moat likely place for a meeting
of the societies, but nothing start
ling occurred. It seems that there
are two Chinese highbinders' so
cieties in exister ce here, and that
they have had trouble lately over
some small matters. In their anx
iety, each to get ahead of the other,
the matter of their existence has
been unwittingly spread abroad.
That there is liable to be trouble
eoon seems to be the opinion of
several Chinamen spoken to yeEter
day. The Lei Jlima. Hop.
The subscription dance held at
Sans Souci last night by the Lei
Ilima Club was a success through
and through, and was enjoyed most
thoroughly by the fifty couples who
were in attendance. The music,
which was all that could be de
sired, was furnished by the Quin
tette Club. There were seventeen
dances and several extras on the

The eighty-ninth dinner of the
New England society in New York
city, had its usual array of bright
men speakers, but no women. The
same was conspicuously true of the
dinner given to Dr. Parkhurst. It
was all very well for women to tug
