Old fire engines up for auction, 1868.

Old Fire Engines [Kaawai].—In the midday of this past Monday, directly in front of the auction office of E. P. Adams, some old Fire Engines were put up for auction. Engine Number 1, “Hoomanawanui,” and Engine Number 4, “Holokahana” of the Hawaiians. When they were auctioned, Engine Number 1 went to James L. Lemon for $90, and Number 4 went to D. Foster for $126. What the two will do with the Fire Engines, we were not told; perhaps they will send it somewhere else.
