Racy Paragraphs From the Capitol Oh
(By W. F. Sablti.)
Honolulu, Feb. 7.
If 1011 continues as.it has start
ed; if the next .cloven , months aro
as prosperous generally as was Janu
ary, according to all reports among
businessmen and tradesmen, Hono
lulu is going to have indeed a very
prosperous year. In Honolulu per
haps moro than anywhero else so
many businesses arc dependent ono
upon tho other and tho success of
ono helps to make tho success of an
other moro emphatically than . is
ordinarily the case in cities of tho
Bame sizo' on the. mainland. For
example, one wholesale and retail
tobacco establishment reports hav
ing accomplished two thousand dol
lars more of business during last
month than during the first month
of last year. Coming so soon after
the holidays and at a timo when; it
is expected that things will bo dull
fdr" a month or two, this report is
significant. And it is truo. When
people smoke moro they have moro
money with which to purchase
smokes, and, if they have more
money for this "necessary luxury?'
they certainly havo more money .for
tho purchase of other things; and
then tho tobacco house is putting
this two thousand extra dollars into
such improvements by way of busi
ness as means the expenditure of
the same in this city. A furniture
dealer declares that tho Jast two
weeks in January wore tho best ho
has scon in eight months; spring is
approaching and hnmcbuilding and
therefore furnishing is looking up.
The Trent Trust Company did its
biggest month's real estate business
last month, the biggest on record.
People aro inquiring from ,many.
points in the States for homo and

A man from Australia writes that

weeks and wants immediately to in

others from New Zealand and tho
mainland States writo the promo
tion people, and othors likely to
know, for facts and prices relative
to fruit and farming lands on this
island and the other Islands. Dr.

There arc a considerable number
of tourists in the city, men with
money and women with tho latest

they are talking volcano trips and

the poorer class in River and Kukui

Remains of Mrs. Eddy
Laid In Steel Vault.
In a concrete grave on tho shores
of Lake Halcyon in .Mount Auburn
cemetery Cambridge, there, was laid
recently a bronze coffin containing
the body of Mrs. Mary Baker G.
Eddy, foundor of tho Christian
Science church. '
On the coffin rested a bronze box
inclosing a completo set of the works
of Mrs. Eddy, together with all tho
recent Christian Science publica
tions, while tho silver plato beneath
gave her name and tho dates of her
birth and death.
Tho ceremony was attended by
the directors of tho church and a
score of its strongest supporters.
The bronze plato covering tho fea
tures of Mrs. Eddy was pushed back,
and ono by ono tho little company
gazed for tho last timo on her face.
In tho construction of tho gravo
tho skill of the- engineers, was in
voked to make it impervious to dese
cration, or even to decay. Tho coffin
rests on. four feet of concrete and is
encased in steel uprights. Above
are alternate layers of concrete and
steel network to the level of the turf.

Tho Pacific Mail-Toyo Kisen Kai
sha agreement was entered into in
1898 between tho late Collis P.
Huntington and President Asano of
tho Japanese line. Under tho agree
rncnf, all tho freight and passenger
business for the joint lines was
handled through Pacific Mail agen
cies. Each lino was. "supposed to
get a fair share of both freight and
passenger business, but as tho cards
were shuffled by tho Pacific Mail
employes and dealt by Schwerin the
Pacific Mail got tho cream of the
business and the Japanese a fine
lino of experience
From the beginning tho Japanese
company made a special,. effort to
study tho wants of its passengers
and the needs of its shippers..
Affairs at the beginning were not
yc11 managed, but from tho timo
W. H. Ayery took chargo tho T. K.
K. has made, steady progress in tho
regard of thoso who travel and have
goods to ship.
Tho schedule was so arranged
that , a big Pacific Mail liner imme
diately preceded, a Japanese ship.,
The big liner, cleared the market of
freight and left for the little brown
partner only the. crumbs. When
Pacific Mail ships arrived tho pas
sengers were landed on a well swept
dock that had been carefully cleared
of freight. When a Japareso ship
arrived tho passengers found tho
wharf just as carefully unswept and
covered with piles of freight so
placed as to hamper in overy way
tho handling of baggage and inter
fere with tho comfort of. passengers.
Then tho Japanese built tho
Chiyo Maru and tho Tenyo Maru
and tho Schwerin system of square
dealing developed some new curves.
Tho now ships were palatial in their
passenger accommodations. Among
the first class cabins wore -a few on
one of the lower decks. They wero

them was not inviting to the travel

wero auviseu to go down to tne ship
and take a look at their quarters,
In many cases this visit led to a
change of plans and the traveler

So strong was Schwerin's faith in
his ability to divert business from
tho Japaneso lino that he did not
consider it necessary to do anything
to attract business to tho Pacific
