Maui is to have daily cable news,
if sufficient subscribers can be found
to support the enterpriss and there
is no doubt but that the attempt will
prove a success.
Supt. E. B. Car ley initiated the
matter while in Honolulu, nnd the
Wireless Company agreed to furnish
100 words daily, for $75 per month.
The messiges will be received at La
haina, and telephoned directly to the
ceutral station at Paia whence the
will be sent by telephone to the sub
scribers. There is no doubt but that
at least fifty, and possibly seventy
ive subscribers will be obtained. If
however, not more- than twenty live
are obtained, the effort will be initia
ted. As 150 subscribers would reduce
the rate to 50 cents a month, it is
hoped that everyone on Maui who can
do so, will send in bis name to Mr.
Carleyasapro rata subscriber for
daily news. ......
On last Sunday afternoon, the Sil
vertown laid the shore end of the ca
ble, connecting the land end with the
specially heavy , sea end which ex
tends from the land to a point be
yond the reef rocks. .,
On Monday, an attempt was made
to spljce the sea end, but it was so
ough iu Molokal Channel that the
attempt was abandoned, not to be
renewed till the waves ran normal.
Ou Tuesday evening the sea still ran
high, so tnat the completion of tfle
cable had to bo deferred till the lat
ter part of this week. The sea end
will first be spliced, and the balance
of the cable lald so that the last
splice will be made in Honolulu har
bor. As soon as this gap is closed,
iressages can be sent direct from the
-Young building to the coast.
A large crowd assembled at Wai-
kiki last Sunday afternoon to witness
the landing of the cable, and the
work was successfully accomplished
amid the enthusiastic diners of the
immense- crowd who watched the
scene in the rain.
Cable Landing in Proverb.
' Tho place where the cable was
anded has been known from ancient
times as Kapua. Prof. Curtis J.
Lyons says tho name is pronounced
as though it were spelled Kah-poo-a,
the accent 011 tho first aud second
syllables. The name and place, he
fays, are embalmed in an old poetical
Hawaiian proverb, 'Kau i Kapua,
ka auwaa panana,'; "The flat bot
tomed fleet (of canoe) has to lay up
at Kapua," i e., cannot weather
Diamond Head on account of the
storm. The application of. the pro
verb is to attempts made to aceon-
p'.ish something which in or are de
layed by failure;
There is a chanuel through the
reef at this point which was very

John Fereira Sr. left his native
home in 1850, after four years of sea
faring life, lauded . in Honolulu in

nership with A. Enos which was dis
solved only last year, having lasted
30 years. The partnershio first en
gaged in keeping a store and board
ing house in Honolulu. In 1808, Mr.
Ferreira came' to Wailuku and estab
lished a store on Market Street, be
ing joined a few months later by his
partner, Mr, Enos.
Acting under the advice of his
physician,, Mr. Fereira abandoned
the sedentary life of a merchant, and
the pattnership bought a' cattle
ranch at Kamaole, since which time
Mr. Fereira has lived an active life
till within the last few. years. After
wards the firm bought the. Kahikinui
Ranch which they owned in parter
ship for over 25 years, and until they
sold it to the Raymond syndicate.
Mr. Fereira was a man of mild and
pleasant manners, and was univer
sally respected and esteemed by all
who knew him. He was sevonty-one
years old, last October.'

Puna Guava Jelly and Marmalade
The Hawaiian Guava Preserving
Company at Puna has made a good
beginning. This concern i's now tuin-
mg out jellies and marmalades, made
from Hawaii's most prolific wild fruit,
the guava. A demand exists already,
greater than the present capacity
of their works. When the guava sea
son is on at its height 'the output will
be increased many fold. The quality
of the jellies and other products of
the company are of highest grade.
The company has undue lease (a
tract of eight square miles, which is
covered with prolific bearing guava
bubhes. In the season a small army
of pickers will be put in the field and
the plant run at its highest capacity.
Orders from outside of this Island
now absorb almost the entire output.
The jelly and marmalade of this
company aro put up in glass' jars,
tightly sealed and clamped, and will
ship to all parts of the world without
deterioration. On the Coast guava
