days out without pnsslng a steamer, whpn
one night the masthead light of a steamer
was observed. Immediately all eyes were
directed toward it. When quite clone It
was recognized to be a sister ship, the
Sierra, bound from Australia to America.
Silently In the night that big ship moved
over the lonely ocean, with ninny a soul
aboard longing for home, and many another

The Fourth of July was celebrated with
much festivity. Of course, there were no
terrific, noises from giant firecrackers. A
few children, true to patriotic customs, en
Joyed themselves tooting a few small horns.
The dining room was tastefully decorated
by the chief steward and his second as
sistant with the Stars nnd Stripes. This,
together with a right royal festive board
and music and song, enoed the celebration
of Independence day aboard the Ventura.
Place to Study Human IVatnre,
Perhaps nowhere elsn do we come so
much In touch with our fellows as on board
ship, entering so to speak Into the Inner
most room of those we inret, which after
all Is .the one place In the human heart
where that single, simple word "I" may be
found with all Its plans, hopes, fears and
secrets. After the first day at sea the cold
formalities of life ashore are put aside and
men begin to warm toward one another.
F-arh passengers history Is soon found
out, and If It be a wom.-wi who gently ques
tions, perchance the reasons why the trip
has been undertaken. Little confidences
are exchnnged nnd before the voyage has
ended the bond of many a lasting friend
ship has been cemented. It Is strange, too,
with what regrets farewells are exchnnged
when the ship at last reaches port. This
Is the point where the paths and lives of
many who have lived so Intimately to
gether for a short time soon widely diverge.
Aboard an ocean liner one finds a great
variety of human characters brought to
gether. Under the same roof you will find
those who call themselves part of the "400";
then comes the middle class, then the steer
age and finally the crew, nut we cannot
correctly class this collection of human be
Ines as they are written down on the ship's
books. No one must measure them by a
higher standard. While they have all hu
man souls, with all their accompanying
hopes, ambitions, Joys and disappointments,
yet many a noble hero has been found
among the men who with streaming sweat
feed the great fires away down In the hot,
burning depths of the ship. Of this motley
crowd some have embarked for health or
pleasure, others for business. A few have
failed In one place and have set out with
fresh hope and greater courage for new
land. There are others wno are return
ing home. They aro the happiest. That
one word "homo" Is ever before them; they
see It written In golden letters as they
gaze out upon the distant horizon. To
them It la a well spring of endless
longings; ond at night when tho
stars come out and shlno bright
above the deep, who can tell what fervent
prnye-s ascend somewhere for the safe re
turn of those who are near and dear.
ntspoaltton to Grumble.
Another class of people Is found at
sea. Just S3 on land. They are the grum
blers. They are found among the passen
gers and also among the crew. But. speak
ing of passenger grumblers, nothing seems
good to them. The voyage Is too long, th'o
ship too slow. It's too rough one day, and
too windy another. Such people seem to
forget the Innumerable conveniences of
modern steamships In comparison to the
frail sailing ships that crossed the seas
In the days of our grandfathers. In those
days a voyage across the Pacific lasted
during many months and was attended by
countless discomforts and many ingers.
Today the voyage from 'Frisco to 8ydney
Is made In the quick time of twenty-one
days. All the way across the passenger has
all the luxuries, comforts and courteous at
tention of a first-class hotel. All the art
and skill of experienced cooks are en
gaged, preparing with care the food, which
Is served In the most dainty, appetizing
manner. Tho traveler today on a long
sea trip sits down at table and finds a
dally change of fresh fruits, meats and
vegetables. And to all this a library, a
doctor and a barber. What more can a
man want who has nothing else to do
only watch the sea and sky and dream
lazily of the strenuous times he has left
behind, with all their anxious care and
After a week's sail the high, mountainous
coast of Tfawnll was sighted. Even after
a short six days' voyage It wa a gladsome
sight. Olant peaks, rugged and sharp,
reared themselves, one behind the other.
It was the early gray of a July morning
when we passed to windward that sorrow
ful Island home of the unfortunate lepers,
forever mnd" famous by the noble Pamlen,
apostle of the lepers. We sailed along the
coast while the sun arose and cast Its
golden beams upon the mountain top,
fern clad hills and green valleys, with their
sparkling streams. Inwn along this beau
tiful coast was sweet and charming In Its
aspect. Passing Diamond Head, over "00
feet high, the Ventura entered the harbor
of Honolulu. Approaching closer to the
shore, the rocoanut groves, sugar planta
tions and verdant pastures became visible.
This, together with the native dwellings,
vine covered cottages end lovely tropical
foliage, presented a picture too beautiful
to paint In words. When the Ventura was
tied up at the Oceanic company's wharf,
many gladly took the opportunity of going
ashoro and vl3itlng that delightful land of
flowers and sunshine Hawaii.
Americanising of Honolulu.
The business portion of Honolulu Is
scarcely deserving of special mention. The
streets of the cupltal are kept very clean
and after American style macadamised.
Indeed, Honolulu Is fast becoming an Amer
ican city. Tho trolley car, with Its clanging
bell and grating noise, Is hear1 In the
streets, serving to bring one's thoughts
back to 'Frisco, Chicago or even Omaha.
The city Is well supplied with modern
stores kept American style plenty of
churches, schools and hospitals, besides
some magnificent hotels. The streets are
lighted by electricity. I found the Ha
waiian people well educated and very cour
teous. That they are lovers of classical
music I Judged from the -large concourse
of the natives whom I saw In the evening
listening with rapt attention to a rrogram
of music by the Hawaiian native band. I
marvelled indeed at the change that had
come over the Island which not so many
years ago was the home of savages and
cannibals. The residence streets of Hono
lulu are extremely beautiful. They are
lined with rows of coroanut, palm, bread
fruit, candlenut and other ornamental trees.
Fully 100 feet back from the roadway are
low-built cottages surrounded by cosy ver
andas, lovely flower beds, fruit trees, and
a mass of tropical foliage made the whole
seem like a garden of paradise. Honolulu
Is overrun with Chinese and Japanese. The
Japs In fact are outdoing all the other
races In business enterprise. In this respect
they are the most aggressive. They form
now a large portion of the population, and
on account of this and their commercial
activity are not well liked by the other
nationalities. There Is much crime In Hon
oluludrunkenness especially being quite
prevalent. In this I waa told by a city offi
cial the Japs are also to the front.
Crossing- the Eqnstor,
From Honolulu the steamship route lies
through the tropics, the equator being
crossed about the tenth day eut from
San Francisco. Crossing the equator Is
mado the occasion for a very Interesting
and amusing ceremony aboard ship. This
operation Is called "shaving." All the pas
sengers and crew who have never crossed
the line are brought, whether they will or
not. to the forward part of the ship. Here
they meet old "Father Neptune" and Ms
assistants. Including a barber and a doe
tor. Then one by one they are lathered
with soap In no merciful manner, covering
the victim's head and face with the cleans
ing foam. He Is then scraped on the face
with a rough board and dumped head first
and backward into six feet of water. Here
sevrral sailors dressed tip as polar bears
take hold of the unhappy victim and tend
erly keep him under water for a longer
time than he cares to stay. I can speak
from netual experience. All the recipients
of a free bath and shave are then given a
certificate which ever after entitles them
to cross the line, and In case of their fall
ing overboard, commands all sharks, dol
phins, whales and crabs, sea serpents and
pollywogs to abstain from eating or other
wise maltreating their person.
At dawn on the morning of the thirteenth
day at sea the mountains of the Samoa
islands were sighted. The ship entered
the harbor of Pago-Pago, which Is an
American port. The steamer was quickly
surrounded by a swarm of small boats
filled with natives. Some began diving
for small coins, others sold beads, shells
and other curios. Neer the mountain top
of one of the Samoa Island -Aria rests
the body of the Illustrious Robert I Ste
venson. For this reason alone Samoa will
always have a reverent spot In the hearts
of all those who have read with profit and
delight the charming stories of the great
writer, who now sleeps far from those
who loved him, but in a spot he himself
loved and rendered brighter by his own
pleasing and gentle personality. After
some hours at Pago-Pago the ship's head
was again directed south toward the great
colonies of New Zealand and Australia.
Reatfnlness the Keynote.
Whlio life at sea may seem monotonous,
yet nowhere else may we find so much
of real, genuine rest. From morning until
night a spirit of restfulness surrounds
us and fills both mind and body with Its
gentle Influence. A voyage In life fills
much the the same place that a rest fills
In music. There Is such a sense of ropose
In the wldo Isolation of the sea, unbroken
often by even so much as the speck of a
distant sail. At sea there is neither hurry
nor worry. No news reaches us from the
great world of strife and excitement be
yond. Business cares are left behind. The
strenuous life no longer exists for us; on
the contrary, all is quiet and rest. We
may fill up the 'hours each day with Idle
dreaming. They may be smoke dreams or
castles In the air. With George Eliot we
"may float between blue and blue In an
open-eyed dream that the world rjas done
with sorrow, beholding the glory of sea
and sky softening as with boundless love
around." Better still, we may have heart
longings after those we have left behind, or
longings for those who are to greet .us
with a smile of welcome and a hand of
friendship, feeling the same thought with
the poet, Byron:
"Tls sweet to know there is an eye will
Our coming and look brighter when we

But let us not forget that though immi

been more than worthy and more than

when we came. It meant much more than

or scantiness. Through Its generosity we
were enabled to exchange humble homes,
low wages, scant living, social drawbacks
and political and legal restraints for com
fortable homes, high wages, good living,
social recognition, political freedom and
equality before the law. And this was
not all. To those of us who were home
seekers and farmers, fertile lands were
given either without compensation, or. If
the value of the land be considered, at a
mere nominal price.
Kew Heart, New Spirit and Manhood.
A high order of public schools, where
no social distinctions prevail, have been
open and free to all, high or low, rich and
poor. Here the Industrious and frugal lm
migrant, however poor he came to this
country, could soon' carve a happy and
cheerful home for himself, his wife and
his children, such a home as he could never
have hoped for ln his native land. Here
neither he, nor his wife, nor his children
were anchored to the social and economlo
rut ln which they were born. Hore he
could see a bright future for himself and
for all his dear ones. And It was the
consciousness of this, which possessed him
at the outset, and which was infused Into
him by the very atmosphere of the new
world, that gave him at the start a new
heart, a new spirit and a new manhood.
of which he was not conscious before. He
became at once a transformed being trans
formed to a higher level than he had ever
dreamed of before. He became an Amerl
can ln energy, In thrift and In aspiration
even before he learned the language of
his adopted land. The Intellectual and
spiritual wealth that accrued to him ln
his new home was Intrinsically even
greater than the material wealth. A man
hood born of poverty and wretchedness
disappeared and gave place to a manhood
typical of the free born, self-conscious and
Irrepressible American. The transforma
tlon, the prosperity and the success that
thus freely and In ample volume came to
the Immigrant bred in him a spirit of con
tentment and gratitude, and that ln Its
turn begot a spirit of loyalty and a de.
aire to become a good and worthy citizen
of a free and generous country.
And manifestly this tribute, above all
