HIS 1L1.I STKlOl S W AH RKCORD. Shipmate of Captain Cot-hvaue on the Mississippi Transfer of Cleopatra's Needle attempt to Re-establish the American Merchant Marine, Etc.. Etc. 2so ship that sails the seas is looked upon and pointed out with greater pride by Americans than the T. F. Oakes that leaves the harbor today for New York with a cargo of sugar. Men of the navy have a particular pleasure in calling attention to the vessel since it represents the efforts of a man who worked his way to honor in the United States navy and finally practically gave up his life iu an attempt to reestablish American ship ping to its proper position with other nations. It does a Yankee's heart good to examine what might well be termed a perfect ship, from the eagle and shield on her bows to the stars and stripes at the peak. Henry H. Gorange, the builder of the Oakes, had a varied and remark able career and although his last scheme was a financial failure, his energy has given him a place in his tory that will not be forgotten in many years. Gorange was the son of a clergyman, who, at the opening of the Civil war, was settled at the Bar badoes. A short time after the out break the boy Henry ran away from home and entered the navy as a blue jacket. He soon became known among the officers as a particularly brave and energetic young fellow and it was not long before he rose to be coxswain of Admiral Porter's gig. After this, on account of bravery and meritorious conduct, he was promoted to a volunteer officer of the navy, from master's mate to master, to lieu tenant and finally to lieutenant-commander, which corresponds to major in the army. He did efficient work among the blockade runners and was put in command of the Margaret and Jessie, which was captured from the Confederacy. When the war closed this vessel was called the Gettysburg and Gorange was put in charge and sent to Europe. During his travels he conceived the idea that Cleopatra's needle at Alex andria might be transferred to the United States and placed In Central Park. When he returned home his ship was put out of commission and he immediately began set ting about to carry out his scheme. He secured financial aid from W. H. Vanderbilt and the Reading railroad; also encouragement from his home government. Necessary arrangements having been made with the Khedive, he proceeded to England, where he purchased a steamer suited to the pro posed task and went to Alexandria for his prize. The needle was flat on the ground and a considerable distance from the shore, aud the mere matter of loading was by no means easy of solution. Gorange, however, was equal to the emergency and built a canal by which he floated the needle to the water front. He backed the steamer up, took off the stern plates, and forced the needle into the body of the ship. He then replaced the plates, sailed for home, and the needle now stands in Central Park, New York, a monument to the activity aud engineering skill of Henry Gorange. In lonor of this magnificent work the steamer which carried the needle to New York was put under the American flag by special act of Congress. He was not done with the world, how ever, and his faithful brain conceived the idea of re-establishing American merchant marine, which was slowly but eurely dwindling. He said, "Now I will leave the navy and will build ships " He got capitalists interested in his scheme and established a ship building plant on the Eastern coast. The T. P. Oakes is the first ship turned out from that plant and an in spection of the vessel will show with what mechanical if not financial suc cess Mr. Gorange builded. Four ves sels were built when Gorange suc cumbed. He lost his reason and died in the insane asylum, yet his record remains one of the most illustrious in the list of United States naval officers. During Mr. ; orange's service as a bluejacket he was a shipmate of Captain Cochrane of the Philadel phia. The Oakes is 1806 tons burden, new measurement, and cost $130,000. She has all the modern improvements from top to bottom and requires only fourteen men for the regular crew. The cabin aud officers' quarters are luxuriously furnished, being finished in bird's-eye maple with patin wood and mahogany trimmings. Captain Reade who is in command ha- been in the vessel for t ight years, and a captain who takes more pride In his vessel would be hard to find. He is a native of Haverhill, Mass., and i a typical good hearted, whole souled "down easter." This is the first visit RIO of the captain to Honolulu since 1S71 when he was here in the bark Agate. His first visit was in 1S53 in the sloop-of-war Decatur. The majority of the crew has been with him several years notwithstanding the aversion to the vessel existing among the mem bers of the sailors union of San Fran cisco. There is hardly a port in the Uuited States at which the Oakes stops where the captain does not have a large number of visitors to inspect his vessel. Especially is this true where officers of the navy are sta tioned. Officers and bluejackets are always anxious to pay their respects to this monument of "poor Gorange." ALOHA-LiNU. I V A MALIUIN1. Good bye, thou dpar Hawaiian Isles! 1 will not say Farewell ; Where kindly Nature always smiles O'er mountain, vale and dell. Where climate, fruits and flowers arc all That could the heart suffice; How trul3. then, may you be called Pacific's Paradise! Here music holds its wondrous charm, And dark eyed beauty reigns O'er every race, and thinks no harm In her unconscious chain. With voices rich and spirits lifibt Youth throws aside its cares, Can I forget those moonlights bright ? Those sweet Hawaiian airs? O, land of mango, fern and palm, Of cascades, fire aud snow! O, land of love, of peace and calm ! A word before I go. I hope to view your scenery grand When I can come to stay : Returning to Aloha-lank To dream my life away. FRIEND OF HAWAII. Senator Perkins Has Worked Hard to Advance Its Interests. Just prior to tke close of the third session of the Fifty-third Congress, Senator George C. Perkins, of Cali fornia, introduced a bill "Author izing the appointment of a non partisan commission to collate in formation, and consider and recom mend legislation to meet the prob lems presented by labor, agricul ture and capital.'' The Senate Committee reported favorably on the bill, but it was not reached upon file before adjournment. Senator Perkins, in writing to a personal friend bere says : " I have always been in deep sympathy with the promoters of the new Republic, and have done all in my power to advance its interests. You know, of course, the feelings of President Cleveland and his Cabinet. I think it was principally engendered by the personal hostility of some of the members of his Cabinet against ex-President Harrison, and, after having taken a stand, they do not like to recede from it. I thought, however, they would concede the appropriation for tie new cable, but they did not, and it was the influence of the Administration ex pressed through the Speaker of the House of Representatives, who would not allow the bill to pass. Had they permitted it to come up under the rules, it would undoubt edly have passed, and the Presi dent could not have afforded to veto it. However, the next Con gress will surely pass it, unless I am greatly mistaken." mom i PORTUGUESE IMMIGRANTS. Some of Them May Be Sent Away Today Marriages Visitors. It i8 likely tb&t some of the Portuguese laborers who came by the steamer Braunfels will be eent off to the other islands today. They are now at the quarantine station in charge of Wray Taylor, secre tary of the Board of Immigration. The contracts are being acknowl edged by J. M. Vivas, and the sig nature of Mr. Canavarro, Portu guese Consul, is also necessary on them. They are being well cared for and have plenty to eat. Fresh beef, vegetables, potatoes,- bread, beans, etc., go over to them daily. On Saturday Father Valentine went to the grounds and baptized several children born during the voyage. Yesterday in the Catholic Cathedral the Bishop married twelve couples. They were taken to the church and back in a large bus. The Portuguese band played at the grounds during Sunday af ternoon and there was a large num ber of visitors at the station from town. The Hawaiian Gazette Company manufacture rnbber stamps of all descriptions. MAKAWAO'S PORTABLE PRISON. Used to Widen the Two and One Half Mile Limit. Bl'MSKSS AI KOCIKTY ON Mill.

During last even ing, in spite of a rainy drizzle and frequent showers, a large audience filled to overflowing the elegant par lors of J. VV. Colville's residenco at Paia, the occasion heing the usual monthly gathering of the Makawao Literary and Social Club. Hawaiian, British and American flags waltad in the wide verandas, furnishing a bright and cozy interior for tete a-tete tables, at which refreshments were served during the latter part of the evening. The famous Peak Sisters (Mesdames Bailey and Taylor, Misses Chamber lain, Aiken, Smith. Mossman and Watson), originally from Pike's county, Missouri, but latterly from Alaska, fantastically garbed in pink, white or blue caps and dainty aprons, delighted the audience with their quaint and humorous songs and speeches. As an encore to this entertaiumeut, a loud M Bugler's Call on the cornet announced the entrance of the "Great and ouly Pig Brothers " from the Pan Inis of Kula. These brothers were also equipped with peak cap and ruffled apron, and caused great amuse ment by their brief parodies of the songs and speeches of the Peak Bisters. Surveyor Aukai aud Robert Boyd, of Honolulu, arc measuring some lands at Pauwela. The Maui Telephone Company has 123 subscribers on their list, and three others have applied for instruments. The financial affairs of the corporation were never more prosperous. The school-house of Camp r, Spreek elsville, has been moved to Kahului, and a regular Government school will be established there, beginning pro bably on the 22d instant. The carpen ters who are to build the new Hale akala school house have begun work. This Government institution is situ ated midway between tbe Makawao and Haleakala schools. W. P. A.

Dast Monday evening, the 1st Inst., a soap-bubble party was given by the Young Ladies' Club at the residence of H. P. Baldwin, Haiku. The decor t ions of the interior were in pink and green, also tbe ribbons on tbe pipes and tiie goal posts. Touchdowns were disastrous, as ouly goals counted for the prizes. Tin- Makawao road board which judging by tho line condition of the district's roads are a most enterpris ing body of men, are now building a portable prison. It is being con structed on wheels after a patent of Sheriff Andrews. When completed it will accommodate eight prisoners and two guards. By a recent man date of Marshal Hitchcock prisoners working on the roads cannot be taken farther than two and a half miles from the jail. Hence the construc tion of this traveling prison. Form erly it has been the custom to charge road boards so much per diem for work of prisoners, but Sheriff An drews has permitted the free use of prison labor on roads, thus reducing the expense of road-making. During Thursday evening, the 4tb inst., Mrs. C. H. Dickey of Haiku gave a most enjoyable "old folks' party." 0L B. Miles is the new captain of the Kahului police vice Henry Long resigned. During Wednesday, the Hd Inst, Young Hee's second tiial on the charge of bribery was held before the Wailuku police court.
