In the excitement of the moment
public speakers often say the opposite
of what they mean to convey, and
when Henry Irving gave a reading In
the Ulster ball In 1878, says Bram Sto
ker In ."Personal Reminiscences of
Henry Irving," one speaker made as
pretty an Irish bull as could be found,
though the bull Is generally supposed
to belong to other provinces than the
hard beaded Ulster. In descanting on
the many virtues of the guest of the
evening he mentioned the excellence of
his moral nature and rectitude of his
private life In these terms: "Mr. Ir

Ameiican Syndicate of Capitalists Buy
After a struggle that has been
going on for llirce years, during
which German opposition and local
prejudice have had to be fought con
stantly, the right to develop the vast
mineral wealth of Guatemala has at
last Ixxm secured by a group of Am
erican capitalists. At the head of
this commission are Former Gover
nor A. Ij. ppnggs ol Montana, form
er Senator V. A. Clark of that State
and a number of capitalists closely
identified with the Guggenheim in
terests. French capital is also in
vested in the deal.
The terms of the concession, which
has been signed by President Don
Manuel Estrada Cabrera, are of the
broadest character. They turn the
Central 'American republic over to
the syndicate. Not only are all pub
lic lands in .Guatemala turned over
to the Americans for exploration and
development but the right also j is
given them to build railroads and
bridges where they see fit, to use the
great water-ways of the republic for
theirown purposes, to build and
operate telegraph and telephone
inee; in fact to do about as they
There are already rumors of an
opposition based on the claim that
President Cabrera and his cabinet
have practically sold everything in
the republic worth having to the
Americans and have not received an
adequate price in return. Behind
his opposition are the German con
cessionaries in the republic.
The terms made by the syndicate
with Cabrera are that ten per cent
of the net profits of any enterprise
the Americans start shall be paid
into the treasury of the republic.
The opposition insists that if the
convention is to be ratified by the
national assembly one of the terms
"All controversies and difficulties
shall be submitted for final settle
ment to the President of the United
States of America, whose ruling will
1 final and executory."
The syndicate, according to re
port, does not want to include these
terms in the contract.
Among financiers the deal that
the Spriggs-Clark-Guggenheim syn
dicate has practically brought to a
successful conclusion is regarded as
one of the biggest things that has
ever been accomplished by a group
of American capitalists. As one
man put it to-day : "It is the first
time in the history of the continent
that a country has been bought out
right, just as a house wife would
buy a spool of thread.'
It was also pointed out to-day
that the American invasion of the
Central American republic is of great
strategic importance to the United
States and that the syndicate has
the backing of the Taft administra
tion. The government influence be
hind the capitalists, however, can
not, of course, openly manifest it
High Jinks, at Punnene.
At a meeting of the Puunene
Athletic Club Monday night, a com
mittee was appointed to arrange for
the raising of money to pay the ex
pense of building a new loat house
at Kahului. Some of the friends of
the club will present it with a new
barge, and they need a building
near the water to house it. . The
committee met Tuesday night arid
decided to have a "high jinks" on
May 13th, and plans are now being
made towards that end.
With eo many friends of the club
on this island and in Honolulu who
are royal entertainers, there is no
question but this will prove a rip
roaring good time. The date has
been definitely decided upon and
the assurance is given that everyone
will get their money's worth of fun.
Thirsty and Disgusted.
On the line of the Missouri Pacific
railway. Just over In Oklahoma from
Coffeyvllle, Kan., is a small place call
ed Nowatta. A state law In Kansas
prohibits the carrying by the railroads
of public drinking cups on trains. Not
long ago a farmer from Iowa, on a
Missouri Pacific train In Kansas near
Coffeyvllle, wanted a drink of water.
He did not know about the law. Going
to the water cooler, he began looking
for the cup. When be failed to find
It be sought the chair car porter, a
negro, and asked for it
. "Law doan' 'low no public cups on
dese beah trains," said the porter.
The lowan was deeply disgusted. He
returned to his seat and grumbled until
the train crossed the Oklahoma-Kan
sas line. Shortly after that the negro
porter stuck his bead in the door.
"Nowatta!" he called.
That Increased the Iowan's disgust

In' cups," he said to the man In the
next seat, "an' in Oklahoma no water
