G. G. Guild, of tho American
Hawaiian Paper Company, has been
queried by eastern capitalists as to
thojOpportunities here for the ercc
ticm of a pulp mill for the purpose
ofmaking paper pulp from bagasse
or sugar cane waBto. Mr. Guild
believes that there is mucn money
in ' a venturo df this kind. Ho
states that while it would not be
feasible to start a paper mill here,
owing to the faot that there would
bej no local market, and on account
ofthe expense of other elements
needed in tho manufacture of tho
paper, t,hcrc would certainly bo a
splendid market abroad for the pulp
iniado of the sugar cane waste, the
pulp being 'used, by eastern paper
manufacturers in various grades of
ipapcr. Tho cane waste is now used
'altogether for fuel and is estimated
tqjbe worth about one dollar a ton

oil; that would be used in the place
of bagasso were tho bagasse sold to

Miko Donlin is through with base
ball for good and nil. His, declar-
ition to that effect, was drawn forth
by Fred Tenhey's recent attempts
to bring the former New York player
back to the diamond as a member
of the Boston Nationals.
In the fourth round of his' 10
round go with Tommy Kilban of
CJeveland, at tho Eagles' club, Abe
Attell, champion boxer of tho feath
er weight divisjon, was so seriously
injured in a fall that ho may never
box again. While in a clinch with
Kilbano the two fell, and Attell
landed with his arm in back of him,
and one of the bones in his right
shoulder was broken. He was hurt
ncd to a hospital. For-'IO years
Attell has been feather weight cham
pion, and in that time he has never
been injured. His possible elimin
ation from the game leads to much
speculation" as to wh6 will succeed
him as feather weight champion
Tho bout was a lively one from the
start, and it was nip and tuck all
the way through. It was anylx)dy's
go until tho time of tho accident,
although Attell showed a trifle more
from than Kilbane.

In Divorce Case.
An interlocutory decreo of divorce,
was granted by Judge Ellsworth of
Oakland, recently, to Archie Rice,
a newspaperman r becauso his wife,
Mary, was stolon from him by Wil
liam H. Cornwell, a San Francisco
florist, and formerly of Hawaii.
Tho divorce suit came about the
same time as tho eensational arrest
ol Cornwell in San Francisco at the
instigation of Rico.
According to tho injured husband,
it was tho money of his wife, and
not her love, that Cornwell wanted.
Mrs. Rice inherited property that
yields her about 8150 a month.
Rico says that Cornwell has victi
mized a number of other women by
marrying them for their money and
mistreating them after marriage.

Cornwell appeared when Hico had
him arrested, dismissed tho charge

of the District School.
Last Saturday evening a number
qf Wailuku residents presented to
an appreciative audienco, a farce
entitled "Tho District, School."
Tho show was a complete success
from every standpoint,. aW it is to
do nopeu inatr.it'Wiu oe possible w
not only- repeat tho performance,
but to get together and give periodi
cal performances of a like nature.
Thero is a lot of work attached to
getting up a show of this sort, but
when they are so well patronized
and appreciated as this one was it
should prove an incentive to those
who took part to even greater efforts
Tho show Saturday night was en
tered into w'ith spirit by all who
took part, and many in the audienco
wero carried back to a vivid recollec
tion of t the days when they wero
active participants. When tho
country teacher was proud to show
off her scholars to their equally
proud parents. Many and ludicrous
were tho answers given to questions
Saturday night, but they were-en
tertaining. Souo very good amateur
talent could he devoloped out of
these make, beliovo school children
for more pretentious performances
and no doubt thuy will bo seen again
in tho near future. The Union

was given, will realize something
