Once more the spot light played
lovingly upon the figure of Super
visor Wolter last night. Indeed
it was twice more for the matter, of
that for on at least two occasions did
the botel-Bolon get the full meetin'.
The first time, came, as the Star-Bulletin
predicted it would, when he at
tempted to get through his resolution
providing for a general increase in the
pay of day laborers employed by the
city. He wanted to give them 25 cent3
Just as this paper foretold, Super
visor Cox was also on the ground
with a resolution which would havo
placed the Bourbons of the board in
the unpleasant predicament of quash
ing a bill for increased pay inT in
duced by a Republican, or of passing
the measure, either of which alterna
tive would have gone most sa lly
against the grain.
Woltcr's resolution got there first,
Followed then a funny situat;o:i,
which ended in Wolter postpon
ing his own resolution by making
a motion to have it referred to (t.
legislative committee of the board. In
the mean time Petrie had oppc.-:ed
the motion on the ground that it
would vastly increase the expenses of
the city and that he favored golhT
slow in such matters until two in
lar men might be found to fill the
places of men worth but a doilar and
a hn If.
Wolter also questioned at some
length Mr. Ballentyne. manager
of the Rapid Transit company. The
supervisor was filled with interroga
tions. He wanted to know this and
he wanted to know that, but chiefly
he wanted to know why the Rapid
Transit company keeps up the tracks
in Alakea street makai of King.
The examination finally wancV'"'!
to the question as to whether if a rail
was required on the Queen Mrer
bridge to keep drunKen men from faH
ing in the water, shorld not peopie
who wore shoes with hels be pro
tected at all times from trippin; on
street ear tracks? and then a roar of
laughter from the other supervisor1
and the aud'ence. broke up the in
animation. M: Ballentyne sail! that
the tracks stick vp because the stre t
has been worn down and not kept i;i
Petri informed the supervisors that
the road committee deemed it neee--sary
to purchase two new steam roll
ers, and moved that tne clerk be ro
quested to call on the Lynch Com
pany and the Honolulu Iron Works

If the Liberty Theatre management
could furnish programmes all the time
equally as good as the present, one, or
even h;if as fcood, a clientele would
doubtkss be established that would
keep the big Nuuanu street theatre
well filled every performance.
That the present bill of three acts
furnishes more amusement than any
bill of equal numbers, or double its
numbers, there is no question, while
enough novelty is furnished. Inasmuch
as a common, every-day brand of pig
is the bright, particular star of the
program, to meet with the approval
of the hardest-to-please pa: ion.
The program is a good one, and
should not be missed, while it can be
tspec'fl'ly recorr mended for the child
ren. Both the vaudeville and pictures
are ocept tonally good.
Last night Van Car and the little
pig furnished amusement unbounded.
This act is unique and unusually meri
Krious. The dancing pair. Hamlin &
Mack, are the be3t seen here for many

C. D. Russell, of the Honolulu Iron

It is now generally believed that the
fire of last Wednesday started from
one of two former blazes which occur
red the same day and which were not
reported to Manager Johnson. The
news of these earlier fires came out at
the inquest at Pahoa last Saturday.
Archie Hapai, a police officer, and
Moody, a Chinese foreman, together
with several minor employes, testified
that they had discovered two incipient
blazes in the sawdust just outside the
oil storehouse about 5 o'clock that
evening. Using water and lire extin
guishers they had barely put out the
first when they discovered the second
a few feet distant, which they also
stopped, as they thought.
The two Japanese waLclimen discov
ered the third fire. They saw a light
under the sawmill, and when they
reached that point they found . the
flames creeping up the side of the oil
room. The fire was not then very
large, and thy tried to put it out
without calling assistance. They failed,
and before the general alarm could be
given, the flames were beyonc control.
