-AT THE
CRITERION SALOON,
The Oceanic Company's splendid
new steamship Sierra sails from San
Francisco today for Honolulu. She is
expected to make a fast trip and may
arrive here on the evening of Monday.
the 17th, instant.
THE KENNEBEC SAILS AT LAST.
After experiencing all kinds of trou
ble in the matter of procuring a crew
for the last couple of weeks, the Am
erican ship Kennebec, Captain W. T.
Lewis, managed to get away yesterday
morning for the Sound, in ballast,
with a white crew. The crimps have
waged a bitter war over the Kennebec,
and now that she is gone they are
more at liberty to put their whole
minds into the profitable business of
stealing men from one vessel in the
harbor to ship them on another about
to go out and in need of men. The
crimps, by the way, will be doing a
rushing business very shortly.
ISLAND STEAMERS DEPART.
At noon yesterday the Kinau sailed
for HIlo and way ports. One of the
argest crowds that ever saw the
steamer off was on Wilder's wharf as
she departed. The ClauSine left for
Kahului and way ports at 5 o'clock in
the afternoon; the MIkahala left for J
xsawiiiwau at tne same time, and the
Waialeale sailed for Hanarhaula at 4
o'clock. An unusual amount of freight
went to the other islands on these
steamers, consisting to a large extent
of Christmas goods.
THE GASOLINE SCHOONERS.
The gasoline schooners of the Ha
waiian Navigation Company left yes
terday on their regular runs. The
Eclipse, Captain Townsend, sailed for
Lafoaina, Makena, Kihei and Kona
ports, and the Surprise departed for
Kauai ports with Captain Nystrom in
command. The little Island schoonera
Lady and Blanche and Ella sailed for
Koolau ports and Hanalei and Kalihi
wai, respectively. . .
THREE SOLDIERS ON A MULE.
When the "skinners" belonging to
the transport Aztec were taking mules
to the government paddocks after they
had been taken from the transport,
last night, one of the sagacious ani
mals managed to get away from one
of the bunches and wandered off by
himself. Three soldiers from the
transport Meade, who had been see
ing the sights of the city, ran across
the stray mule, and feeling rather tired
after walking round all day and
rate at last. Tuesday night's storm
proved too much for it, ana about mid
night the rotten old stick feu with a
rcisuiiuiiig crash, which " was hearu
nign above uie roaiii.s 'of ine gale1.
Thus vanishes one of ttie most inter
esting mementos ot the early days,
when electric cables were not, and the
only regular means of communication
with the outer world was by means o
the bi-monthly steamer from Panama.
All San Francisco went wild with ex
citement on those days, and the mem
ory of them is still kept alive by the
curious survival of the "Steamer Day"
custom. As a matter of convenience it
became the practice to collect and pay
all accounts at these periods, and
though modern methods of communica
tion have entirely revolutionized busi
ness matters, the plan has endured for
tifty years. "When a steamer was due
every eye was fixed on Telegraph Hill,
where the tall semaphore pole was dis
tinctly visible from all parts of the
city. Everybody knew the code of sig
nals employed, and as soon as the arms
began to move, the name and character
of the approaching vessel was known.
In the early days there was another
Semaphore Station at Fort Paint, and
the signals from there were repeated to
Telegraph Hill.. The method was kept
up until about twenty years ago, when
a telephone line was put in, remarkable
for being, at the time of its installation,
the longest one west of the Rockies.
One by one the old landmarks of San
Francisco are disappearing. San Fran

to the transport wharf at a good pace
and singing for sheer happiness of
heart. Upon their arrival at the wharf
they dropped from the mule's back,
one by one, and then hitched the
obliging brute to a post right near the
gangway of the Aztec. "We will leave
him here," they said, "for then he will
be found the first thing in the morn
ing." Then the tired soldiers hurried
aboard the Meade and turned in. The
mule waited patiently for daylight; he
had had a taste of liberty and wanted
more, and objected to being tied to a
post. The Aztec, it will be remember
ed, is at the Pacific Mail wharf, while
the Meade is at the Navy wharf, so
that the two boat3 are right next to
each other.
MUSIC ABOARD THE MEADE.
Kappelmelster Berger and his band.
together with two popular young na
tive song-birds, who add eo delight
ful a charm to the band concerts, were
the source of great pleasure aboaid
the transport Meade yesterday after
noon. The ladies and officers, as well
as many visitors on the great vessel
gathered on the shady side of the
steamer and listened for a couple of
pleasant hours to the best efforts of
the musicians. There was also a crowd
of people on the wharf, attracted by
the sound of the music, and ithe sing
ers and instrumentalists performed to
a large and assorted audience. The
Meade sails today for Manila via
Guam. She will get away some time
during the afternoon.
MISCELLANEOUS.
SAN FRANCISCO. Dec. 3. The
coasting steamer Bonita, which arrived 1
yesterday afternoon from Newport,
south, reported that earlier in the day
she sighted a large sailiner. vessel stand
ing about two miles off Half Moon bay.
It was 10 or 11 o'clock when the Eo-
nita passed the vessel, but nothiner con
cerning the stranger's position off Half
Moon bay was learned by telephone at
the Merchants' Exchange, and late in
tne arternoon the belief was exDressed
that the northeast wind that
blowing outside had taken" the un
known vessel further out to sea. The
treacherous currents which run in to
ward Montara reef have carried manv
a vessel to Its doom and mariners fa
miliar with the place srive it a wide
berth.
Four stowaways who exnecterl tn trn
to Manila on the transport Meade were
discovered in hiding on the vessel after
she left port Saturday afternoon and
were bundled Into the pilot boat Amer
ica and brought back to the city. They
were Pete Jackson, colored, aged about
ham Peterson, a riveter at the
Union Iron Works; Tom Jones and
Harry Lyons. The latter turn am frnm
Chicago and notwithstanding their ten-
uer years are said to be hardened
youngsters. They were once before in
the Philippines, but were sent home by
General MacArthur. Pilots Kortz and
McCullough, who brought the stow
aways back yesterday, had hard work
keeping the little fellows out of mis
chief on the pilot boat and were glad
to bid them good-bye upon arriving in
port. As the little fellows were penni
less. Pilot McCullough gave them a dol
lar with which to purchase food.
