Shortly before 5 p. m. yesterday, the
C. D. Bryant started out for San Fran
cisco with a full cargo of sugar. On
account of the fact that the tug boat
was on the marine railway and all the
island steamers save the Lehua had
departed, it became necessary to se
cure the services of the Lehua to tow
the Bryant out. The weather looked
favorable and Captain Colly was anx
ious to get away.
Just at making the start the C. D.
Bryant stuck in the mud and Captain
Lorenzen, the pilot who took her out,
okingly remarked that he did not be-
ieve the vessel wanted to go.
The Lehua succeeded in getting the
Bryant out of the mud and was tow
ing her out of the channel with a
ight breeze from the north. Sudden-
y there was a heavy squall which
caught the Bryant full on the star
board side. The Lehua was power-
ess to do anything and the vessel
went on the sand bar abreast of the
spar buoy just at the edge of the nar
rowest part of the passage.
The Bryant was stuck fast and the
Lehua wras useless. Captain Lorenzen
ordered a second line out. This was
attached to the large new buoy 'ind
the steady heaving with the winch
took the Bryant out of the difficulty.
It was thought at first that the ves
sel would have to be brought back
again into port, but Captain Fuller
tested the pumps and found the ship
without leaks. He together with Mr.
Schultze of Hackfeld & Co.'s and Cap
tain Colly, held a short conference and
it was finally decided to send her on
The Lehua steamed ahead with her
tow line and in a short time the Bry
ant was clear of the channel. When
Captain Lorenzen left her, she had
part of her sails set and a fair breeze
tiad started up.
Should the captain find anything
wrong with his ship alter leaving ine
Lehua, he will undoubtedly put back
The squall which overpowered the Le-
huaand placed the Bryant in peril came
very suddenly and in the middle of a
heavy fall of rain. From the docks,
the vision for a few minutes was cut
off at the lighthouse. All the sailor
men on the front said at once that the
bark would get into trouble. The Bry
ant is well known in this port having
been making Honolulu a port of call
for several years. She carries sugar
and merchandise in busy season and

While the Bryant was in the sand,
she was stuck still and it was an in
teresting sight from shore, with the
Lehua tugging away for all she was
worth and bobbing about like a cork.

Chas. W. Day.
There was a very heavy downpour of
rain a few minutes before the hour set
for the funeral of Chas. W. Day yester
day afternoon. Notwithstanding the
weather the attendance at the Masonic
Temple at 2:30 was very large. The
hall was crowded when the body arriv
ed. The pall bearers were Minister
King, Col. J. H. Soper, T. F. Lansing,
A. F. Gilfillan, J. Phillips and J. A.
Gilman, all prominent Masons. The
casket as it was taken from the hearse
to the large room above was covered
with flowers. Other floral offerings
had been sent to the hall in advance.
The services were brief, but solemn
and impressive. The Masonic ritual
was used and the leader in the cere
mony was Mr. E. I. Spalding. Respon
ses were by the large number of Ma
sons present. Mrs. Grace Richards
Woodward sang "Nearer My God to
Thee" most feelingly and sweetly.
Wray Taylor sat at the organ. Dr. C.
B. Wood escorted the widow of Mr.
From the temple the procession went
by the most direct route to the Nuuanu
cemetery, where the casket containing
all that was mortal of Chas. W. Day,
was placed in a vault to await the re
turn of his son, Dr. F. R. Day, from the
Coast. The attendance upon the funer
al included besides the many causal
friends and acquaintances of Mr. Day a
large representation of the Central
Union congregation and nearly all the
members and employes of the house of
Castle & Cooke, Ltd.
There was a concluding Masonic
ceremony over the body at the ceme
tery. H. H. Williams was the funeral

worth. Competition regulates that. The
higher the price the better the quality, as a
rule; but price doesn't always guarantee
quality; the reputation of the seller counts."

keep it. Ask anyone who has purchased
