Filipino Taken Down Two Weeks After!
Being in Jail. .
Tho latest case of smallpox, or
varilokV as the doctors call thesq
mild cases, has broken out over in
the Waikapu camp. The most
peculiar thing abqut this case is tho
manner in which it has broken put;
The sick man has been on thq
inland of Maui about a year, and
has been working for the Wailuku
plantation four or fivo months. Ho
had been serving a term in jail
and was released about two weeks,
ago. Saturday ho- was reported
ick,and Dr. Osmers, who examined
the, man pronounced it .smallpox;
This man, nor any other in tho
camp,, has never at any time been
subject to a contact from the Fili-;
pino camp in Puuncnc, whero tho
smallpox first broko out. Tho only
way tho doctors can explain how
the smallpox could get into this
camp is that it has been in the
man's clothing ever since he has
been hero, and this clothing never
having been properly fumigated,
retained the germs to this time.
Manager Penhallow immediately
got busy, and within 10 hours from
tho time tho case was reported ho
had "tho entire camp rounded, up, a
guard set, lumber was on tho ground,
and a fence being built. Tho plan
tation people arc taking no chances
and arevaccinatiug tho members of
every camp on tho plantation, and
giving every houso a thorough fumi
gating. Chief Sanitary Inspector
Charlock is here, and expresses
himself as entirely satisfied with
tho precautions taken, and feels cer
tain that any serious results from
this latest outbreak (has been already
discounted by the prompt action of
the plantation people.
The Gymnasium Benefit.
Tho'last performance of the Great
American Show, in Wailuku, Mon
day evening was ,a grand success.
The management had very gener-,
ously offered to givo fifty per cent of
tho net proceeds toward the new
gymnasium, and in addition they
did everything in their power to
make the benefit a success. Messrs.
Cufkin and West had a .lively con
test, and they disposed of about 100
pounds of peanuts. Mr. Lufkin
was the winner so far as receipts
went, but Mr. West makes the claim
that he sold all his peanuts, and
could have sold more had they been
supplied him. Those in chargo of
tho affair had no idea that Mr.
West and Mr. Lufkin were such
good, salesmen, else more peanuts
would havo been procured.
Tho ladies added' their share to
thq general fund by selling, flowers,
and they reported somo very genor
ous buyers in the audience, which
auiply repaid them for their troublo.
Tho performance was probably
the best ever seen on these islands,
and was marred, only ly tho painful
accident to Mr. Silbon, who fell
whilo attempting ono of his perilous
flights through tho air. Mr. Silbon
was quite badly cut about tho head,
but no bones were broken, and in a
few days will bo as good as over.
Tho total amount realized for tho
gymnasium was 8308.37, and it is
indeed gratifying to those who had
tho entertainment in charge, to find
that the public responded to their
appeal so generously,

of Ghent Was Signed'.
A tablo famous in history as the
ono upon which was signed tho
treaty of Ghent, bringing to an end
tho war of 1812 with England, and
which afterward was used by Presi
dent James Madison as a part of
his offico furniture, was loaned to
tho American Institute of Archi
tects for tho national convention to
,bo held at tho Fairmont hotel in
San Francisco, January 17, 18 and
19. The tablo is thn tirnnorf.v nf
,Mrs. Alfred Voorhies, and is to be
come the temporary property of tho
architects by her courtesy.
Tho table is cirr-ulnr in Hlinnnnml
of' handsome mahogany finish. It
was ono of tho few pieces of furni
ture saved from Uio White Houso

"I have just matched Sam Lane- ,'
ford and Bill Lang and I will
endeavor to match tho winner
against Johnson. I will give it as
my opinion now that Lane is tho
man -who is destined to meet John
son for the championship of the.
worldrand you can place mo on re
cord that Bill Lang of Australia
will bo tho next world's champion.
I feel certain of this. Ho has im
proved out of all recognition. Ho
now weighs in condition 225 nounds. '
and is perfectly strong and well,
and tho able tuition ho received
from Corbctt, Fitzsiinmoiis, McCoy
and Burns has placed him in a posi
tion today to be capable of contest
ing with any man living."
Tho above was written by Hugh
Mcintosh to friends in San Fran
cisco, before the contest between
Jack Burns and Lang took place, so
that it goes without saying that Mc
intosh is surer than ever of tho
bright future ho has predicted for
tho Australian heavyweight. Wheth
er Mcintosh's opinion of Lang is
shared to any extent, the writer
has no means of knowing; but one
thing is certain, if Lang defeats
Langford, as Mcintosh seems to
think ho will, a match between
Lang and Johnson would havo a
much more even look than it bears
at present. Mcintosh says that
Lang weighs 225 pounds "in con
dition." This is hard to under
stand. When Lang first loomed up
in this country the expert figured
him to be between 180 and 190
pounds in weight. If he has in
creased to tho tune of 35 or 40
pounds sinco ho went to England,
tho only thing that can be said is
that the British climate has dono
wonders for him. If Mcintosh can
induce Johnson to fight in England,
whether it bo with Langford or
Lang, that affair will tako placo in
London during coronation week,
next Juno. Mcintosh's new box
ing arena at Olympia will bo tho
sccno of tho 4 championship event,
and with the crowds that will
throng tho British capital for tho
coronation ceremonies, it is a con
clusion that tho pavilion will bo
packed to its capacity.
What is planned to bo the biggest
international contest over held for
tho amateur billiard championship
of tlio world is being arranged to
tako placo in Now York. It will
open on Feb. 7 and continuo for
the remainder of tho month. Cham
pions from every country whero
billiard playing flourishes havo al
ready ontcred with the exception of
France. Hcrr Albert Poensgen of
Dusscldorf , tho champion of Ger
many, has cabled that ho will sail '
to tako part in tho match.

lowing tho destruction of tho White

"The Octagon houso" still stands

that caused Mrs. Voorhies to lend
tho latter to the architects for tho, '
