OF HEART FAILURE,
TWO WATER SPOUTS VISIT
On Sunday morning two water
ppouts were seen on tho windward
side of Maui.
One was near the spot where tho
ship Spartan was wrecked some
months ago. It was unusually
large and was of a straight well def
ined fonn, and very large. Tho
clouds dipped down in tho shape of
a funnel while tho sea lifted up to
meet tho cloud, and tho whirling
masses were soon united, .forming
one of the grandest sigtits of tho
torrid zone. The force of tho water
spout was so great that tho sea was
lifted high into tho air and the boil

Representative W. J. Coelho were

GUN CLUBS FOR MAUI.

count of tho Kihoi Gun Club haiv
dicaps. This is a form of sport
that is becominE very popular and
would bp more so on Maui were

any ono can participate in and
most overy one enjoys it. It does
not require ono to ho an athlote
either. Even ladios find 'it enter
taining, Ono of tho befct shots in
tho Kihoi Club is Mrs. Scott. If
thoro wor soveral gun club's on
Maui thoy could got togothor and
furnish about as oxciting sport as
haso ball or tonnis.
There should bo a Club formed
at Paia, Puuneno, Kahului, Maka-

SAN FRANCISCO, March 27. Fire has practically destroyed tho
town of Wrangel, Alaska. The loss will be ono hundred thousand
dollars and many people rendored destitute. t
Wrangel, at the site of old Fort Wrangel, near tho mouth of tho
Stikine river, is ono of tho centers of tho great salmon packing indus
try of Alaska. Tho salmon, principally king salmon and humpbacks,
begin to run in theriver early in Juno, so that at this season of tho
year tho packers at Wrangel would just bo getting ready for tho open
ing of tho year's work. This fact would account for the heavy loss and
for tho numbor of persons mado destitute by the fire. Great numbers
of Chinese and Japanese go from San Francisco to Wrangel every
years to work in the canneries. ' v

Evidently, Russia has trouble with the soldiers that havo remained

Russia has not taken these troops home becauso sho feared that their
disbandment would spread disorder in a population already too much
inclined to. rebellion for the Czar's comfort. This cablegram, which
tells more in what it does not say, indicates that the soldiers have .ot
waited to go home to spread disorder. Thoro is no other force in Sibe
ria that would menace tho railwav line.

As tho Czaris tho head of tho Orthodox (Greek) church in his

cording to Mulhall's statistics tho religions of Russia wero divided in
Btrongth as follows in 1898: Greek, G5,G49,000 (out of a total of 80,015,
000 for all Europo); Roman Catholic, 8,300.000; Protestant, 2,950,000;
Jews, 3,000,000; Mohammedans, 2,G00,000; total, 82,399,000. A do
