Daughter Is NO Longer Her
NEW YORK, Dec. 27. Those who
find no Rood in divorce courts must
admit that.a tribunal of that kind has
straightened out at least one peculiar
family tangle. By obtaining her de
cree of divorce and adding another
name to the string she had managed
to bear up under, Mrs. Gladys Aslie
Guuraud becomes Mrs. Gladys Asne-Gouraud-Hopper
and retires with
treat gladness from the Position of
sister-in-law to her own mother. The
name of her mother and ex-sister in
law, by the way, is considerably
hyphenated, due. to varied matri
monial experiences. The mother is
known as Mrs. Amy Crocker Ashe-
Uillig Gouraud. The elder woman
paid her son-in-law brother-in-law,
the first husband of the younger
woman, the sum of $500,000, it is said
to release the combined daughter and
sister-in-law from the matrimonial
bonds that made the mixed relation
ship possible. The elder Mrs. etc
Gouraud's father was the mate Chos.
B. Crocker, the California millionaire.
who left her J7.000.000. Her first
husband was Porter Ashe, whom she
married in San Francisco in 1882, and
whom she later divorced to marry
Harrv Gillie a yachting man. This
matrimonial voyage proving stormy,
she dismissed Pilot Gillig viu a divorce
court in 1901, and in the same year
married young Jackson Gouraud, of
London. Gouraud is not rich, but he
writes songs, and has a brother nam
ed Powers Gouraud. Gladys Ashe
met Powers at her mother's wedding
and iu a few months eloped with him
The young folks were forgiven, but it
is hinted that Powers was extrava
gant, and his mother-in-law sister in
law drew the purse strings. Result,
friction, which came to a head when
Powers decided to star the whole
Ashe-Gillig Gouraud family in a dra
ma. During rehearsals Gladys met
Lewis HooDer, ' a theatrical man.
Then she and her husband quarrelled,
and a divorce followed, with the wed
ding that has just occurred to
straighten things out a little bit
Coasting a Autos
a New Amusement.
Hilo, January 30. It was a very
quiet and humble party of Wild
Westerners, cowboys, , show inana
gers and stage drivers that reached
Hilo the other night from the Volca
no House. Eben Low, and Angus
McPbee the terror of the steers, and
Johnnie Winters the buster of bron
chos, and Held-Up Lewis started off
bappy in an automobile from the vol
cano for Hilo.
AH went well till they reached the
seven mile post then the machine de
. cided to stop. Needless to say how
long, and thev are both pretty long
Low and McPhee tried to effect re
pairs from beneath, but Winters
grew weary of waiting, and Lewis
who stuck to the wheel, had to be
roused out of a sound sleep.
Low suggested pushing the thing
along up a rise and' then coasting
down. This suited Lejvis wtio stuck
to bis steering gear while the other
three pushed. They got along all
right and did a little coasting till
they came to a level spot followed by
another rise. Lewis urged them
nobly. He could not have done bet
ter had he been driving a tried team
over a bad road after a long journey
Every once in a while they did get a
little coasting, but for every yard of
downhill there seemed to be at least
a thousand on the level, or uphill, to
Low, Winters and McPhee.
John Watt came along in his Big
Three and offered them a tow line,
Not a bit, they were insulted. So
Watt left them whistling an air that
sounded like "All the fools are not
dead yet." ' But pride had its fall
and a Japanese with a cart and pair
of mules caused the tumble. Tt rough
Waiakea and into Hilo came a wreck
ed auto. In it with heads downcast
and hats pulled away down over their
mouths were Lewis, Low, McPhee
and Winters. In front of the ina
chine was a rope hitched on to a
Japanese cart. In the qart was a
citizen of the Orient cheerily singing,
, in his native tongue, "All things
come to those who wait." In front
of the driver was a pair of jroud
mules, flicking each other with their
ear tips and deftly winking the other

The Manna Kea.
The Inter Island Steam Navigation
Compuny's new boat, the Manna Kea,
is.getting ready for her trial trip.
It has been a long time coining but
that will be all the more reason why
both builders mid owners should wi--.li
it to bo the more successful.
The history of the Mauni Kea
dates back before the S.in Francisco
earthquake of A pril 1 1(0(1, the order
for construction !;aing bee.i given
to the Union Iron Works of San
Francisco fully t wo years ago. A
start in liuikling her was of course
delayed and it was not till November,
1907, that the new Inter-Islander
was launched, and christened by a
niece of Governor Frear. Until then
her history had been one of delays
which it is expected will be forgotten
iu her future career.
Briefly the Muuna Kea will be the
largest and fastest Inter-Island boat
that has ever run in Hawaiian
waters. Her length is 240 feet,
team 26 feet She has double bot.

Scotch boilers, 2,400 horse power,

speed of fifteen knots with an expect
ed trial ?peed of sixteen knots, steam
steering gear, and a cold storage
Asa freight carrier the Maunn
Kea will not improve upon the Kinau,
being essentially a passenger and
power boat. She has sleeping ac
commodation for 150 passengers, of
whom 12G can be put in cibins on the
upper deck. On the main deck, aft,
are the quarters of the steerage
passengers, firemen, engineers
water tenders, oilers, ice room, mail
and package room, freight clerk's
cabin, bath and toilet rooms. Amid
ship is the dining saloon with seven
tables, most of them running across
the ship, and a seating capacity for
88 passengers at a time. There are
also eight cabins for passengers,
mes room, pautry with hot steam
tables, galley, linen room and, furth
er forward, the quarters of the cooks,
stewards, waiters, quarter masters,
boatswains and cew
On the upper deck is the cabin ac
commodation for 126 passengers, the
forward cabins being connected and
en suite, suitable for parties of
friends who may wish to be together
and as far away as possible froir the
revolutions of the propellers. Right
above the dining saloon is a social
hall and, near it, the cabin of that
important personage the purser of

From the top of her funnel to her

Say They Did Not
See Eclipse Boat.
The men on the rort ueorge say
that they did not see the boat, aud
express the opinion that the Eclipse
crew must have made a mistake when
the7 say that they were within :
short distance of their vessel. Cap
tain fullerton wasnolon board when
a reporter boarded the Fort Geotgo,
but First Mate Edward Gerrard aud
Second Mate McLeod both denied
absolutely that they had sighted the
boat. The Captain stated that il
any boat had been sighted he would
have immediately gone to its rescue
"At 8 a. m. on Saturday our posi
lion was 21.40 north by 154. 21) west.'
said Gerrard. "We were steeling
west bv south, and we had held to
that course from 10 p.m. on the 21th
until 11 a. m. on the 20th. We did
not alter it at all during that time.
At the time stated we were about 102
miles from Kauiki Point on Maui. I
understand that the Eclipse crew say
that they could see our man on the
lookout. This shows that they are
mistaken, as we do not kef p a look
out at 8 o'clock iu the morning. We
only keep one between sunset and
sunrise, except in thick weather,
when we keep one m the daytime,
too, and that is all that is necessary
according to law, I feel quite sure
that the boat could not have been iu
the position which I have given you
at the time stated, as it could not
have made the distance to land, over
a hundred miles, in the time which
they are supposed to have done it,
especially in the light wituis which
prevailed at the time.
"If we had seen the boat weshoul''
certainly have picked it up. We did
not see it, and I feel sure that they
did not see us."
"I had the morning watch," said
McLpod. "And 1 did not see any
boat. Most oj the men were busy
clecninsr the deck, and would not
have been in a position to see her
anyhow, but the man at the wheel
should have seen iter if she was as

It happened that Dr. Archer Irwin

Past Grand Exalted Ruler of the

The President appreciated the ac

one of the strong incentives for the
slaughter of these animals.
The teeth became very valuable
largely because they were bought by
the Elks to be made into emblems.
Artificial teeth are to be used instead
