The younger of the two heroes of tlie
American Navy found Honolulu pleas
ant and quite like a place on the Main
land. Lieut. Hobson, traveling by the
mail steamer Gaelic, was here all of
Saturday. During his stay he was
shown about by Special Agent Sewall
you. This is the idea of the general
appreciation of American citizens for
wuai has been done in this war by
American citizens. Everywhere "is the
recognition pronounced and earnest
and grounded in the spirit of Ameri
canism. "I wish to assure you that the little
p:ece of work with which I had the priv
ilege of being associated was but an
index cf the status that existed in the
i!cet, and the same status friends ex
isted in the army ashore.
"From my prison window I saw the
rsagnificent work the soldiers did. the
unrivaled work, when they charged up
Juan hill against the entrenched
enemy with his flanking machine
guns, and they themselves unsupported
by artillery. (Applause.)
"You all know, perhaps have heard
how, when the matter of taking the
Merrimac in was brought up, the whole
fleet volunteered for the service.
"Let me tell you a little further,
more graphically, perhaps, that when
it was known that I had the selection
of the crew, the men would come to
me and plead and beg and pray that I
would let them go.
"Some would say, 'Mr. Hobson. we
cruised together on the Chicago back
in '90 and '91. Don't you remember
me? I was captain of the fore-top. I

Lieut. Hobson reached the Pacific
Mail wharf not more than ten minutes
before the Gaelic cast away her lines.
The dock was white with people and in
the crowd there were more women
than men. The Honolulu jam was
courteous as ever, there always being
kept an avenue to the gangway of the
ship. The amateur photographers were
on hand in full force. After several
false alarms had been started, the
Lieutenant appeared at the entrance
with Special Agent Sewall and Mr. Bal
lou. The band started up with popular
melodies and Lieut. Hobson uncovered
to Dixie and to the cheering. A couple
of leis were given the hero and he ac
cepted them gracefully. He shook
hands with about 200 people and gave
the most cordial grasp of all to a sol
dier. In the main saloon on the ship
were President Dole and several other
officials, and here also Lieut. Hobson
found a Hawaiian Quintette Club and
at once took an interest in the native
rlaying and singing. There were no
kisses offered the handsome young
man who has become so famous.
It was when Lieut. Hobson appeared
on the bridge with the ship captain and
the port pilot that the greatest ovation

"Friends, let me assure you that
those sailors and those soldiers who
did this work simply come from among
the Americans. They are simply a type
of American citizenship of which you
are the representatives in this forward
movement of our Nation, and I believe,
that American citizenship will not be
found unequal to any work that may
fall to its lot. It will not, even in the
face of dangers and obstacles, shirk any
of the duties the American race owes
in the uplifting of the human race."
Applause and cheers followed till the
steamer was wrell out in the channel.
Lieut. Hobson was immensely pop
ular on the ship and by his demeanor
here made many friends. It cannot be
even hinted that his head has been
turned by the attention that he has re
ceived. He is good natured in speech,
is careful in utterance, impresses one
as being thoughtful. He is of rather
slight build, is handsome. The Adver
tiser picture of Hobson last Saturday
morning was an excellent one.
The Lieutenant has a voice that is
quite exceptional. It is strong and re
sonant, yet has the mellow effect of the
ordinary voice of the South, hj being
a son of Alabama. Every word he ut
tered could be heard distinctly. At

A Trunk Puzzle.
A young son of J. J. Williams found
yesterday morning a trunk near the
Makiki cemetery. It had been opened
from the rear and still contained some
of the belongings of some one. The
police department was notified and an
officer brought the baggage to the sta
tion. It is evident that a robbery has
been committed. The trunk awaits an
men under the most trying and difficult
circumstances. The ability, courage,
zeal and endurance shown by them in
crossing the Pacific ocean in a vessel
of this type, practically a raft with only
sixteen inches freeboard in her over
loaded condition, certainly deserve
some recognition. A cruise of over
7,000 miles in the tropics., in excessive
temperatures, with what small deck
room there is in the ship packed with
coal so that sleeping places and sleep
were almost unobtainable luxuries for
the forty days spent at sea all hands
upon a limited amount of fresh water,
struggling with appurtenances and en
gines never designed for such overload
ed service, continually breaking down
and as continually being repaired no
war duty has been more onerous or
more disheartening. Anticipating a
fight to the death with the nemy's
heaviest force afloat, the voyage has
been all a forlorn hope from the be
ginning, recognized as such by all who
participated, heartily joined in without
flinching, happily ending without an
incident, yet only needing disaster to
emphasize what I write."
