The smoke from a steamer away oil to westward at noon yesterday wa the cause of many conjectures along the front, until drawing closer, it was found to come from the United States revenue cutter McCulloch, on her way to San Francisco from Yokohama. At half past two o'clock she was anchored on the Waikiki side of the gunboat Bennington and Capt. C. L. Hooper, commanding the now fammis little cut ter, gave audience to the local report era who were early on board. It was the MCulloch that fired the first shots of, the battle of Manila in deed the first of the Spanish-American war. When Admiral Dewey's fleet was entering Manila harbor just at the en trance from the ramparts of El Frayle boomed the alarm gun that notified the other batteries at El Caballo and Cor regidor of the Yankees coming. The sparks from the McCulloch's smoke stack had discovered them. "It waa the poor coal," mused Chief Engineer Chalker, on board yesterday, "that caused all this. We had taken it on at Hongkong and it was poor stuff, but ithe best that could be obtained at the time. It was our luck to fire up just at that time." The McCulloch's for ward gun spit back at El Frayle, but by that time the batteries were passed by the United States fleet, the McCul loch being stationed in the line of col umn well behind, third from the last, LOUIS K.

Formerly as Admiral Dewey s victory was accom plished took the cablegram to Hong kong announcing the fact to the United States Government. It was the irony of fate that the Mc Culloch, a few weeks before leaving Manila last month, should have been detailed by Admiral Dewey to destroy the battery of El Frayle, which had fired on her, as narrated, and also the forts of El Caballo and Corregidor. They were all dismantled, the guns some of them new 8-inch Armstrong breech loading annon of the latest im proved pattern were .taken out to sea and sunk. This was done to prevent them falling into the hands of a pos sible foe the Filipinos and tens of thousands of dollars worth of valuable armament were buried beneath the waves.

From Amoy to Shanghai sailed the McCulloch. leaving the latter port De cember 1st for Nagasaki, wife re she coaled on the 4th inst. The United States collier Nero had sailed from that port a few days previous. The McCul loch arrived in Kobe December 7th and in Yokohama the 0th inst.. sailing after a week's stay in that harbor on Decem ber 15th for Honolulu. The trip has been uneventful a pleasant one throughout. Just four teen days with fair weather all the way. with the exception of some light head winds the last two days. Of course the McCulloch is full of war stories. All the officers, excepting rant. Hooner and Chief Lngineer Chalker, took part in the battle o! Manila, and the crew, with the excep tion of ten men. were all participants Mounted on the forward deck are two Soanish 5-inch bronze guns, taken off the Reina Christina and destined to be cast in the statues to adorn the collosal Maine monument. They are centuries old and have histories that would a book. Capt. Hooper relieved Capt. Hodgs- don, then in command of the MCul- och, last July, and will be remembered as passing through Honolulu on the China the month previous, for .the Asiatic station. He is a handsome type of the veteran American mariner somewhat in looks after the style of Commander Houdlette of the Australia. Thirty odd years ago, in company with Capt. Andrew Fuller, the well known harbor master of this port, he sailed in the United States merchant service on the Atlantic. Later he took a com mand under the United States revenue service and has ably acquitted himself. Tt was in the .spring of 1S93 that Capt. Hooper had charge of the reve nue cutter Richard Rush, that brought 11-fated Commissioner J. H. Blount to Honolulu. It was a bright morning in March of that year that the Richard tush anchored in naval row and with Blount came also ashore the newspa pers containing President Cleveland's message urging the reinstatement of ..iliuokalani. And it was on this trip that Blount is said to have leaned over the stern of the Richard Rush and asked the commander "how the wheel went around." For Blount was a land lubber from the wilds of Georgia, and iad to be explained everything naut cal. This was one of the unpleasant- est tasks of Capt. Hooper's whole ca reer and he was glad when his fort night's stay in Honolulu harbor was over and he could steam back to San Francisco. The McCulloch left Baltimore on January 9th, 1S98, on her famous trip around the world destined to be in terrupted at Singapore, where she re ceived a dispatch from Washington to hasten with the utmost despatch to Hongkong and report for orders to Ad miral Dewey, whose fleet had ren dezvoued there. Only a few days of preparation was allowed, under the ut most secrecy, and then the McCullceh sailed south with the United State3 men-o'-war to act as dispatch boat which work was most dutifully per formed. Prior to her arrival on the Pacific the McCulloch had been regular ly reported by press dispatches at Med iterranean ports and along the coast of Southern Asia. Going through the straits of Gib- ralter now nearly' a year ago Feb ruary 5th, 1S97, the McCulloch passed the Italian cruiser Etna, now a visitor in these waters. The Etna was on her round-the-world voyage and fate was to lead these two vessels to meet again in this haven of the Pacific. Executive Officer D. P. Foley, who superintended the building of the Mc Culloch, is still on board, as are many of the men who were assigned to her when she first took commission. In the cabin of the McCulloch is a loving cup. presented some months ago by the children of Hugh McCulloch, the distinguished statesman, famous as Secretary of the Treasury during Lin coln's administration, with the historic inscription solitary but forcible 'Manila, May 1, 1S9S." trial trip) of 17 knots. The McCulloch can maintain an average of 12 knots. The McCulloch has ten officers and a crew of eighty-five men. Her officers are as follows: C. L. Hooper, captain.. D. I'. Foley, executive officer.

The McCulloch will remain a few days in port coaling and then proceed to San Francisco to resume operations in the revenue service. Mystic Lodge Officers.

Intended only for the purpose of thwarting smugglers and enforcing the regulations of the United States Treas ury Department the McCulloch is not built, armed or manned for warfare. There are a half-dozen odd guns mounted, which might hurl unpleasant missies at an escaping merchantman, but would have little effect against a vessel with the least protection. She is schooner rigged, with a square fore sail and three masts. Her length over all is 219 feet, beam 32 feet, mean draught 15 feet (13 feet forward and 1Q feet aft) with a displacement of 12S0 tons.

It is stated by Mr. Desky that he In tends soon to build on a portion of his property at the corner of Fort and Beretania streets. He will occupy with a new structure the land in front of the Orpheum theater. Plans are in course of preparation. As Mr. Desky is in the habit of making handsome per manent improvements, something meeting his established standard may be expected. SOUVENIR CALENDARS. -If you have not purchased one of those handsome calendars at the Wo man's Exchange, do so at once be fore the supply is exhausted. 25c. Byron O. Clark, secretary of tho Board of Agriculture, and one of tho hardest working officers in the civil service, is making on well with hl3 Settlers' Association plan. The organ ization for the first colony is practical ly perfected. A list well-nigh suffi cient has already been made and thero are further applications almost every day. i f For the purposes of this Settlers As sociation there has been secured a tract of 1,300 acres of land makal of tho wagon road .between Pearl City and Waialua, ten miles from Pearl City and eight miles from Waialua. The selec tion is back of the pass into Waianae from Mokuleia plains. There are two streams of water on the site and the records assure an abundance of rain fall. BtiL to guard against drought thee will be an irrigation plant. Holdings so far selected range from twenty to sixty acres. It is the inten tion to grow vegetables for Honolulu and fruit for export. A main produc tion will be pineapples, to he shipped fresh and to be canned. Under tho head of oranges and limes and so mo other orchard fruit, Mr. Clark 4s quita confident. A survey is now being made of the land and a number of the mem bers of the Association are ready to be gin building and the cultivation of tho soil at once. The twentyseven acres of nursery land under lease to Mr. Clark at'Pearl City, go over to the As sociation. The Oahu Railway people and prominent Government officials aro doing everything possible to forward the movement. The settlers are to have quite a vil lage, Avith a church and school. In the center of the fanning territory will bo the homesteads to form the model town. The town or building lots will be five acres yet. So far Mr. Clark has interested in the plan a number of ity people in addition to the Californiana with whom he has been corresponding for more than a year. Any number of people desire to come down from the coast if they can sell their present prop erties. Mr. Clark is the author of tho amendment to the land act under which these Associations may be formed. This i3 the statute, from tile Session Laws of 1898: "Section 71. In case six or more per sons, who are qualified to apply for Right of Purchase Leases and Cash Freeholds under this Act, shall form themselves into a Settlement Associa tion and apply for holdings in one block of land, the Commissioners may, with the approval of the Executive Council, cause to be surveyed lots in one block corresponding in number to the number of persons forming such association, in agricultural or pastoral land or both, according to the provi sions of this Act. "Section 72. The provisions of thi3 Act relative to Right of Purchase Leases and Cash Freeholds, shall be followed in the settlement of such block of land, and shall apply to all matters relating to the occupation thereof and the rights and obligations of the Gov ernment and Lessees and Freeholders under stich occupation, provided that the notice by the Agent of Public Lands declaring such land open for settlement shall be directed to such Settlement Association 'and shall be in one lan guage only; and further provided, that in case of the surrender or forfeiture of the holding of any member of such as sociation, such holding if declared open for settlement shall be open to any ap plicant under the provisions of this Ikirt of this Act.
