SPEAK no ill of a ship to her mas
ter. Lest ye court his bittermost hate.
Tell him not she is doomed to disaster
O prophesy not of her fate.
For know ye not, man, that he loves
her
Of the plan of his life she's a part;
And every wind that moves her
Gives a throb of joy to his heart?
If you want to make friends with a
skipper,
Speak well of the bark he commands;
Swear there's nothing afloat that can
whip her
And he'H greet you whenever he lands.
Do you know that a ship's almost hu
man? Old sailors will tell you so.
Why! a ship has the wrays of a woman
You must follow the sea to know.
Speak well of a ship to her master.
As you'd speak to a man of his wife
If she's doomed let him share her dis
aster, For she's part of the plan, of his life.
WILLIAM F. SABIN.
Many Ships Come In.
Yesterday saw the arrival in this port
of four d?ep-water vessels. Two of
them came from Newcastle, coal laden;
two came from San Francisco loaded
with everything which goes to make up
a general cargo.
Three were barks and one was a
- schooner. They were the American bark
Edward May, Captain Hanson, eighteen
days from the Golden Gate, with gen
eral merchandise consigned to Alexan
der & Baldwin; the American schooner
Aloha, Captain Fry, eighteen days from
San Francisco, with general merchan
dise consigned to H. Hackfeld & Co.;
the British bark Woollahra, Captain
Thompson, fifty-three days from New
castle, with 850 tons of coal consigned
to Alexander & Baldwin, and 537 tons
of coal in transit to Eureka, and the
American bark Palmyra, Captain Kel
lar, sixty-eight days from Newcastle,
with coal. 1

respective senior officers yesterday.
May 1st.
The examination took place on the
same day throughout the United Staus
and its foreign possessions.
Captain Winslow, commander of the
Solace, being the senior officer present j
in Honolulu at the present time, con
vened a board of officers consisting of
line and engineer officers, and the ex
amination took place yesterday.
Chief Machinist Clift and 'Jack''
Bryce of the tug Iroquois appeared
before the board and, needless to say,
fulfilled their friends' expectations.

The bark R. P. Rithet. Captain Mo-'
Phail is discharged, and already has I
about 20,000 bags of sugar aboard. She
has now to wait for the rest of her j
cargo, and will probably not leave for
the coast until Sunday or Monday.
The Rithet arrived here on the 19th '
of April, and is receiving quick dispatch.
Important Naval Changes.
Several important naval changes
were announced at the navy depart
ment on the ISth instant. Commander
P. R. Ingersoll has been ordered to the
command of the Bennington, relieving
Commander C. H. Arnold. Commander
William Smith has assumed command
of the Concord as the relief of Com
mander Colby. Commander E. H.

Arrived From Hamburg.
At noon on Tuesday the German bark
Tellus arrived from Hamburg, after a
voyage of 155 days. She met with ad

the trip, otherwise she would have made
better time.

The schooner Robert Searles has ar

There has been in process of forma
tion for several months a line of ships
to run between Puget Sound ports
and the far East, and in fact one boat
was dispatched on the new route as
was stated at the time, but the nego
tiations for the eight ships which will
be put on the route were only just
closed, and the announcement that they
will be assigned to regular sailings is
confirmed by Northern Pacific officials.
The ships are what is known as the
"Glen ships" in marine and transporta-
ition circles. They are as follows: The
Glenlochy, 8,000 tons: Glenroy. 10.000:
Glenlogan (a new ship); Glenturret,
8,000; Glenartney, 4,200 tons; Glengyle.
4,000 tons, and Glenshiel of 4,000 tons.
