Castle will very probably get away for San Francisco today and the Albert on Monday. The Missionary Packet Morning Star is now anchored in naval row here quite safe from the Spaniards. The Lehua sailed to Olowalu for a cargo of sugar yesterday afternoon. She will be back in time to take the place of the Mokolii next week. The Hawaiian bark Mauna Ala, Smith master, arrived in port yester day morning, IS days from San Fran cisco with a cargo of 1,240 tons of gen oral merchandise for W. G. Irwin & Co. The dredger, which is being operated alongside the newest wharf, was point ed towards the sea yesterday and will be pumping again today. There is to be another foot of filling on Lime Kiln Point.

Calhoun master, arrived in port yes terday morning, 15 days from San Francisco with a cargo of 400 tons of general merchandise for Castle & Cooke. She encountered very light winds on the way down and had a most uneventful trip. Speaks of Moro. One of the several men of Honolulu who can imagine pretty well the bom bardment of Havana is Capt. Paul Smith, commander of Co. A of the National guard and of the Government dredger. Captain Smith visited the Cuban capital twice in six months some years ago. He says he was great ly impressed with the apparent solid ity of Moro Castle and of the fortifica tion on the opposite side of the harbor mouth. Moro is of granite and bristles so with guns that one might think a lots of the muzzles had been painted on the stone. The other fort looked al most as formidable. Captain Smith says the channel from the roadstead to the harbor is only'about half a mile in length. The fleet in action would of course stand off much further. Granite forts were well enough in their day, hut their day is past. This stone struck with heavy shell or high explosive breaks and becomes missle itself. The modern fortifications built are of earth. For New York they are terraced. SYDNEY SHARK?. A Honolulu Man Tells the Story of an Attack. Tom. K. Jjiincs, who as boy and man has Failed in all seas, declares that the beautiful harbor of Sydney is the worst place by loner odds for sharks. Every few months an agitation is started with the object of inducing the Government to reduce the numbers of the fierce fish of prey. Excitement on the subject sometimes runs high and political capital is made of various plans. One scheme quite favored is to use dynamite pretty well over the har bor say a couple of times a week: No thing ever comes of all the talk. Re vivals of speeches and letters to the papers on the subject come when pro minent people are thrown into the water from yachts and devoured or maimed by sharks. Sydney harbor has many Islands up on which are located homes of the wealthy. These are luxurious estab lishments with all the furnishings and features that money can command. The bathing compounds are fenced in as a protection against sharks. This is absolutely necessary. Mr. James tells one fearfully grew some tale of a shark fatality. A sloop with a pleasure party had gone over. As a young lady was being hauled aboard the righted craft a shark snap ped off from her a leg, leaving a jagged, bleeding stump. The girl died before the shore was reached. Appalled at the disfigurement of the body, the father offered $5,000 for the portion missing. There was a panic of a tourn ament at shark fishing. The leg was recovered. The shark that had it was seventeen feet long. The $5,000 was paid at once. In the face of the danger, little boys paddle about the Sydney harbor into deep water on planks.

BICYCLE OIL It is a well known fact among me chanics in these Islands, that their light lubricating Oils are utterly use less here. They dry up or run out of the bearings: in fact you must use a far heavier oil here than in colder coun tries. Oil bottled in the United States for sewing machine use is of no use to lubricate a Bicycle. Bicycles here, do not, as a rule, get enough lubricant. Of twenty Bicycles overhauled on Monday in The Honolulu Cyclery, 231 KING ST., Sixteen of them were absolutely dry. They needed. Bailey's Best Bicycle Oil Put up in tin cans. 25 cents each, which is just as cheap as light thin oil. Sugar Imports.
