Distributing Pithy Write4Jp
of the Big Island.
ucrctary Wood, of flit' Hawaii
. l'loiiiotionXJoiiiinitti o, if? one of the
best friends the town of Hilo has
in Honolulu and he is in a position
to do a lot of boosting for Hilo and
Hawaii in general. Just now he is
sending out with his eorri'Njion
ilenee a lot of circulitrs set'.ing foi th
the advantages of the Uig Island
and the beauties of the Hilo district
from a tourist point of view. The
matter, prepared at the instance of
a Hilo business firm and endorsed
by the Promotion Committee, is
short and pithy and to the point.
The circular reads in part.
The town of Hi lo has much that
will interest the tourist. Here it
is that the Federal government has
decided to build a great breakwater
which will transform the now open
roadstead into one of the most
magnificent harbors in the world.
The town is on a crescent-shaped
bay and the climate is one of the
best in the Territory. It is the
shipping place for nearly all of She
sugar produced on the Island of
Hawaii. A short drive in either
direction, north and south, brings
one to lava flows which years agone
inspired the prophets of Hawaii to
build myths. The hotel accommo
dations are good.
Just a little way to the north is
Kainbow Falls, a bit of nature that
has served as a theme for poets and
a subject for artists. One of the
Hawaiian my ths concerns a beauti
ful maiden who took refuge in the
cave back of the falls to escape the
attentions of .a jtoo ardent lover.
The water falls over a pali eight
feet high and in a way that the sun
strikes the mist which rises from
the lava at the base and sheds back
a rainbow of glorious colors. There
is a minature park at the falls and
visitors may sit and enjoy the scene
at their leisure. The couhtry be
tween hotel and the falls is inter
esting, the road passing many of
the homes of the thrifty Portuguese
wliose interests are in cane.
A side trip involving but little
expenditure .of time or money is the
ride to Ononiea. This gives one a
knowledge of cane cultivation in
this island, for the entire distance
is along fields of growing cane, and
at the end is one of nature's curious
formations which rivals the Natural
Bridge of Virginia. This arch of
Ononiea rises from a fertile valley,
or gulch, which begins far up the
mountain side and ends in the sea.
The arch is formed by a separation
of a tremendous lava flow centuries
ago. At one time canoes. could pass
between the cliffs which from the
sides of the arch, but the space has
been filled by the ever-falling mass
of dirt and rocks. The lands of the
Onomea plantation are here and
the c ine for miles around belongs
to this company. '
It e astonishing how few of the
many whoeat sugar know anything
of its production. Herein Hilo you
have ample opportunity to study
the process "while you wait." A
mile either way on land from. your
hotel is a sugar mill at the edge of
the plantation to which it belongs'
Tourists who have seeu the luxuri
ant cane in the fields ma j here see
how it is maseerated- so that the
juice is extracted. 1L may see it
deposited in the boiling kettles, and
after cooking drawn into the cen
ti ifugals aul made into good brown
sugar. He :nav see the "little brown
men'' bagging and the little brown
women sewing the uaj,s prior to
shipment. It is interesting, watch
ing the bees making the suar, anl

Insists Upon Marrying
WASHINGTON. April H. If
Miss Elkins is to become the
Duchess d'Abruzzi she does not
know it herself. No engagement
exists between the roval Italian
and the American girl as yet, ac
cording to those who are in the
confidence of the Elkins family.
And upon the highest and most
intimate authority it was said to
day that it is Miss Katherine her-
self'who has halted the match.
It is learned that the Duke'is
still insistent, pleading by letter
and cable code his love and bis
issurances that if she will marry
him Miss Elkins will be given full
social rights as his wife.
But, in turn, Miss Elkins is still
answering that she will refuse to
be bound by the limitations of
royalty and that while she likes
the Duke she likes her freedom
She hus told him to adjust his
status- to get a pledge that if he
marries her it will be without
limitation or bargain on either
side. And at the same time, ac
cording to her friends, she has in
timated to them and to him that
she does not believe he will ever be
able to meet ner terms.
She will not turn ' Catholic to
comply with the religious .precepts
of Italy's ruling house; she w ill
not agree to a cent of monetary
settlement upon him. She ex
pressly stipulates that should she
consent to wed him she will marry
as an untrammelcd American girl
marriej an American man and
that is where the situation stands
Senator Elkins has put the en
tire matter in his daughter's hands.
He believes she will eventually re
fuse the Duke, and that, his friends
say, would please him.

"We have the matter in hand

The Wrong Nose
lION'OU'l.r. April is. . M(
aeeider.t occurred ill tiie mellow
moonlight aboard the Young Broth
ers' gasoline launch Ilukiliuki
(which moans pull-pull) last even
ing on the run. with a picnic party,
from the Peninsula to Honolulu.
Aboard, the Hukilmki were a
number of merry. men and maidens,
enjoying the delightfulncss of the
evening and happy in the apprecia
tion of a holiday well siient. In
cluded in the ship's company were
two genth-meu, one a very jolly
and nice young man and the other
also very nice but more dignified
than jolly. Also a young lady
who desired to be dignified in the
presence of the. dignified gentle-,
man. The members of the party
naturally found .entertainment in
The dignified young lady, shice
the boat was crowded, several
times found her knees in the ribs
of the dignified y young man and
each time she apologized, with due
dignity ; -but somebody was pinch
ing her arm and she had a definite
suspicion that the jolly gentleman
was doing the trick, so she bided
her tune and then, suddenly turn
ing on him she supposed was the
jolly gentleman, pulled his nose.
Imagine her chagrin when she
found her comrades had rhifted
seats and she bad pulled the nose
of the wrong man, that sh.e had
tweaked the break of the dignified
gentleman before whom she parti
cularly desired to appear dignified.
The jolly gentleman rudely laugh
ed and the .dignified man looked
less dignified than he has ever look
ed before. .
Iluki-huki means pull-pull, but
it has no reference to nose-pulling,
unless you pull the nose of the
right gentleman. '
Thaw Expects to
Win Wife fein.
NEW YOIiK, April 7.--lIarry.
Kendal Thaw is not greatly per
turbed over the annullment suit
brought by his wife, Mrs. Florence
Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, according to
alienists who are witching his con
dition in the New York asylum for
the insane in Matteawan.
Thaw knows that the -hearing of
the case will begin to-morrow
morning before Referee Robert E.
Deyo, and realizes that tho woman
for whom he shot White .probably
will gain her legal freedom in short-
Many persons who have studied
'I haw closely since the, Madison
Square Garden tragedy expected
that Mrs. Thaw's suit would be the
signal for a brain storm for the
man who is in the. . State hospital
for the criminal insane. It was
even predicted that he would Def
ine fo violent' as to spofl the
plans his attorneys have made to
apply for his release shortly after
tho annullment case is disposed of.
His well known vaiiity, however,
it was declared to-day, has come to
his rescue in thi3 latest tribulation.
He firmly believes, it is said, that
when he is released he can readily
win back the woman's love.
