There Was a Play That Knocked The
Shingle From (he Roof.
(By Manuel tie Costc.)
There is nn opinion in some q liar
tors tlmt tlic failure of the Shingl
boom for governorship, dclegateship
or any other old thing within the
gift of tho president or the people
has quite taken tho starch out of the
heretofore - aspirant for political
honors. So estranged is Ilobcrt from
his heart's desire that there
scarcely a chance of a nomination
ever reaching him. It is well known
that Deacon Trent's allegiance to
Link kept. him from tho treasurer
ship. Now if Richard and .Link
will divorce, Trent will beat Shingle
for treasurer for the city and coun
ty of Honolulu as badly-as he beat
Fred. Watcrhouso for the same of
nco a lew years ago. Ana lie can
do it without wheeling barrows to
.-show that he is not afraid of work
As far back as my memory takes
me in connection with Bob Shingle,
George Davis has been his mega
phone. Ho had him picked for the
oflico of treasurer several years ago
before the convention caucusscd and
decided that Shingle was not the
right dope for tlo crowd. Later he

I find most of tho 'persons with
whom J have talked of tho fight be
twecn Frear and tho delegate to be
of the opinion that Kuhio has pick
cd his Waterloo. It matters not who
wrote tho specifications, thn bids for
favor which tho delegate asks fail of
response, and he seems destined to
go down with a smash. That ho has
weakened himself in Washington
when ho expresses an intention to
go democrat, if Frear is reappointed
Microtis no doubt, and ho will pro
bably realize, his mistake, when ho
gets back in the shadow of the great
dome. People will say that Frear
will have tho support of the inter-
ests becauso he is of them, but no
ono can say ho has favored them to,
the detriment of tho Territory. The
"interests will stand by him, not be
cause ho has been one of them, but
becauso they realize that lie is safe
and sane, and a good man to have
at tho helm iit any stage of the
game. He is helping us on tho slope
and antagonizing tho owners of tho
Kapiolani estate, who are doing
everything in their power, and out
of it, to keep tho Portuguese from
getting their lots. I'm safe in say

The shooting of Cederloff tho
other day was a bad piece of busi
ness all 'round. It deprived one
woman of a husband, through
death, and another through booze.
I cannot figure out tho conclusion
of tho case, but it looks very much
like a ''lifer'' when you cast your
eyes on McMahon.It does not seem
to me that ho premeditated the
crime, as far as the victim is con
cerned, though ho may have had
designs on his wife. His comrades
aro not coming to his assistance.
Ccderloff's remains will bo set to
tho coast for burial. Tho objection
McMahon had to the lady seems to
bo without foundation. She has the
respect of everyone hero, and all
through tho islands, for she was
well brought up though a slave to
discipline. Her father is said

Mark. Twain's Old Home
The boyhood homo of Mark
Twain in High street. Hannibal.
Mo., built by his father, John M.
Clemens, in 1839 was purchased by
George A. Mahan and his wife and
presented to tho city of Hannibal
in order that it may be preserved.
Tho old homo is a two story, five
rooms frame building in a fairly good
state of preservation.. It stands
hush with tho building line of the
streets in the old part of tho city on
lot 20 feet by G5 feet. It is only
few feet away to the alley where
Tom Sawyer had tho other fellows
paint the fence and on tho other end
of which lived Huckleberry Finn.
Mahan said :
"Mark Twain's life teaches that
proverty is rather an incentivo than
bar, and that any boy, however
lumblo his birth and surroundings.

complish great things. This is one
of the reasons why his modest bov-

day and took the Stars into camp
by a score of 8 to 7.
1 he Stars looked very strong on

players who were formerly stars in
reality as well as in name were in
tho lineup, but time and lack o
training have left their mark, and
the playing'of tho Wailuku team
was far and away below the high
standard set by these same players
in other years.
Paia started things early and-
jumped away in the lead in the
second inning, and though the Stars
shifted their players and fought it
out to tho last they were playing a
losing game throughout. The Paia
pitcljer did not seem to have much
