Champion follows the Iwalani, 1894.

The Champion [Kamepion] Leaves.

After remaining in the port of Kou for nine months, the warship Champion left at 4 in the late afternoon this past Saturday, and headed to Necker Island [Mokupuni Neka], and from there on to Esquimalt [Esekuimala] and then on home. At 3 o’clock in the dawn of the following Friday, the Pele began to fetch and scoop up coal for its long ocean voyage, and was through at 5:15, and it was filled with 45 tons. It left for Necker Island to map the proper route to lay the ocean telegraph cable [uweaolelo moana], and he took with them some coconut trees  and some other trees from the Government with some others to plant there.
