Floral Parade and Carnival Will
Prove Our Position.
Honolulu, February 21st.
. ,'rius town is carnival mad. Every
one you sco on tho street wears a

fellowship pervading the entire po

, : The Shrincrs arrived this morn-
,iiig, fez and all, and they arc add
ing their mainland voices, to tue
. general medley, chorusing tho beau
ties of Honolulu, and of Hawaii.
, , An immense crowd was at the dock
when tho, Wilhelmina, one mas3 of
steamers, from stem to stern, poked
hor(noso into tho harbor. The Wil
helmina was followed immediately
Iiy the Sibqria, and the crowd rush-

Just as the sun showed .abo.vc tho
horizon this morning, tho Siberia

Tho only peoplo here that do not
enter into tho spirit of the affair are
the Inter-Island people. Their sail

as the laws of tho Modes and Per

corpulent in their prosperity, and
, . have no consideration whatever for
either thocomfort or accommodation
of tho traveling public. Tho people
pf these islands arc at their mercy,
and, they are using their advantage,-
but as Roosevelt recently said,
n'Every dog has his day, and the
cats have their nights." Tho un

not forget the Inter-Island.
The Elks are working together as
only, Elks can, to- boost. Their
boosting has nothing personal about
it either, just plain simple boosting
alhthp time. Tho parade tomorrow
is going to bo one huge success, and
altogether Hawaii cannot help get

Maui is over here, and it keeps one
busy. Of course you have to give
tho glad hand to every Mauiite you
meet, though at homo you meet one

Tho health situation has improved

Davis Called Bonilla's Bluff.
' After! two hours of defiance from

ashore, manned it with American
gunners and engineers and ordered
it out of the inner harbor. Tho
Hornet's recent movements up and
down tho coast were taken in the
light of threatened hostilities against
The seizure was made after tho
ornet's commander had defied
Commander Davis, who said:
Tho Hornet is my property.;;; It
is up to you.".
Commander Davis ordered steam
up then and passed close up to tho
Hornet, guns trained on tho little
filibustering fighting ship which for
several weeks has been terrorizing
the Central American coast. Lieu
tenant, Ropor, commanding 45 gun
ners and engineers, then set off to
board tho vessel.
Though tho Hornet's fommander
and General Bonilla had been de
fiant in their attitude, they offered
no resistance as tne American sea
men came clamoring over tho sides,
drovo the motley crow from their
posts and hastily embarked them in
tho small boats for shore.
Tho seizure of tho Hornet will
badly cripple tho rebels.

t During last week beginning with
'tho 13th, water has been run through
tho Kula pipeland from tho water
head at Waikamoo to Kalnaolo
Engineer F. E. Harvey Jias been
trying tho pipe and if it had not
been for tho discovery of two split
sections, water would have been
convoyed to Kanaio. ' 'v v
Tho forco of water is very strong
and all tho joints, valves, etc. must
bo in good order withstand tho
strain ' '
As to tho supply of water at Wai
kamoo, somo judgment can bo form
ed from tho recent rainfall-records,
during Jan. tho gauge showed about
80 inches for tho month. During tho
storm of a week ago, tho record for
tho thrcd or four days was between
59 and GO inches, and that of tho
last day, tho 10th, was a triflo moro
than 23 inches for tho 24 hours and
water m tho Waikamoo stream was
rushing downward with a depth of
ten feet. If somo provision should
ho mado in tho way of reservors, an
abundance of water could bo stored
for uso during tho dry periods. Tho
next work to bo accomplished is.tho
laying of lateral pipe-lines.
