that for on at least two occasions did

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 cents
an hour. ' "v v-
V Just as this paper foretold, Suptr
visor Cox was also on the ground
with. av resolution: which would have
placed the Bourbons of the board in
the unpleasant predicament of quash
ing a bill for; increased pay Intro
duced by a Republican, or-of passing
the measure, either of which alterna
tive would have gone most sally
against the grain.
')VolterB resolution got there first,
Followed then a funny situation,
which ended in Wolter postpon
ing his own sesolution by making
a motion, to have it referred to tb.;
legislative committee of the' "board. In
the mean time Petrie had opposed
the motion on the ground that it
would vastly increase the expenses of
the city and that he favored gnius

places of men worth but a dollCr an1
Wolter also questioned at some
length Mr. Pallentyne, manager

,If the Liberty Theatre management
cchld furnish programmes all the time
eQpally as good as the present one, or
even half as good, a clientele would
doubtless be established that would
keep the big Nuuanu street theatre
vell filled every performance.
That the present bill of three acU
furnishes more amusement than any
bill of equal numbers, or double its
numbers, there. i3 no question, while
enough novelty is furnished, Inasmuch
as a common, every-day brand of pig
lis the bright, particular star of the
program, to meet with the approval
of the fcardest-to-please patron.
The program Js a good one, and
should not-be missed, while it can be
(-specially recommended for the child
ren. Both the vaudeville and pictures
are exceptionally good.
Last night Van Carg and the little
pig furnished amusement unbounded.
This act Is unique and unusually meri
torious. The dancing pair, Hamlin &
Mack, are the best seen here for many
moons and easily the best dancers to

Col. oam Johnson, manager of the

:lt Is now generally believed that the
fire of last .Wednesday s started from
one if-two former blazes hich occur
red the same day and which were not
reported ; to ' Manager Johnson. X The
news of these earlier fires came out at
the Inquest at Pahoa last - Saturday.
Archie: HapaL a ; pollen 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 nre extin
guishers they bad barely put out the
first when they discovered the second
a few feet distant,' which they also
stopped, as they thought.
The two Japanese walchmen 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 they tried to put it out
without calling assistance. They failed,
and before the general alarm could be
given, the flames were beyonc control.
