railroad and when the time camo
to advertise tlie town and its nur
roundings lie went personally among
thoie who liked und disliked him
and got their promises of subscrip
tions and supported an unheard of
accomplishment, lie heeame iden
tified with the Board of Trade of
Hilo and engineered this visit to Ho
nolulu in which more than a hun
dred persons from the hig island
took part. And the sheep and the
goats wen; together mixing as no
one ever saw them mix before.
Unquestionably it was the biggest
day in the history of Honolulu and
every man among the visitors will
go back convinced that the hammer
is really buried and shout to his
people "Hoot mon; We'evr buried
Thurston has passed through an
experience that has been his since
'87. It is said that in the days of
revolutions he was cordially dis
liked by one side or the other
but whenever there was an in
dication of breakeos ahead he was
the man called upon to help out
and steer the ship of state into safe
anchorage. I remember hearing
him deliver a speech in the old
legislative hall in the early part of
1890, when there was an effort being
made to secure a vote of want of
confidence against Attorney General
Asford, (C. W.) First one and
then the other spoke and to me it
was a case of diamond cut diamond
but in the end Thurston was the
brighter of the two, or perhaps there
were more facets exposed to the
light, for C. W. went out of the
cabinet and Thurston remained.
He was called upon afterward when
ever there was a revolution, real or
paper, and was looked upon as an
advisor whose knowledge of affairs
fitted him for the place. He has
never sought to bring himself into
the spotlight as far as I lrave been
able to observe nor can I say he has
been after self aggrandizement for
lie is by no means a wealthy man,
as wealth is counted in Hawaii,
though he works everlastingly to an
end that helps others as well, if
not more, than himself. Mayhap
it was his idea to have the pipers
head the Hilo bunch leaving the
steamer but swing C. C. Kennedy J
in line, younger than he was a
couple of decades ago, I am inclined
to give him credit for the poetic
i.lea. Hilo district is nothing if
not Scotch and rare good fellows
The big raid by the police the
other night means more than is in
dicated in the newspaper reports.
I have heard at intervals that there
was gambling going on, big games,
among the Chinese and the police
department could locate the places
by inquiring. The plain clothes
men never did so but, after Mc
Dudie went to the Orient, the
sheriff took the matter in hand and
for the first time in nearly three
years a uniformed policeman was
in a raid that m surprised the play
ers that it was believed to be a joke.
I am told there is to be no more
laying in the big games or little
nes, the sheriff has his Dutch up
md is going to take charge. The
ivil service commission decided the
cither day to reduce McDullies salary
iid rank, and I would not be sur
prised if it went still further.
George Allen, according to re
ports is at it again. Last June he
and a jolly bunch of homesteaders
went up to Waimea to look over
some land they had drawn in the
shuflle in the land ofiice. I had a
conversation with one of the party
and asked the man if Allen had
changed his ways. He told me
there was no perceptible change
and probably would not be as long
as bis foster mother had more
money than she knew what to do
with and was willing to make ad
vances to him. It is said a line
seven seater auto; and auto truck
and numerous other bit of farm
equipment were purchased and in
stalled. Now George has begun his
old tricksof making touches through
out the country, given his I. O. U.
until he could get a check cashed.
I was surprised to find among the
victims the name of a man who
has assured me many times that lie
did not just come down from the
farm to see the town, by jinks 1 His
was a little fifty dollar which ; others
were for larger amounts and Clau
dius McBryde is on a still hunt in
the hope that he may recover some
of the money from Allen. Appar-

SYNDICATE MAY BUN.
I understand there is a syndicate
willing to invest money in the Palm
Cafe w'.iich is just now being run ny
a young man for the benefit of the
creditors. So much money was
wasted in the fitting up of the cafe
and so much extravagance in the
early management that it will take
a long while to recover. Of course
the fittings had nothing to do with
the place going into the hands of a
receiver, there were other reasons
for that and it were best that they
be kept in the noodle.
ROADS. ' v
Bob Shingle made a proposition
in the convention relative to roads;
to have the territory bond itself for
a million dollars and then turn
loose. The thing was voted down
and placed in the hands of a com
mittee for the collection of data to
be presented to the next legislature.
Joe Gilui'in, who is president of the
Bitulithic Pavement Company, op
posed the idea, though in the end
he would have been benefitted. He
advised against the propi sition un
less it should be shown that the
road built with the proceeds of the
sale of the bonds could be in exist
ence when the bonds matured. It
is not likely the bonds will ever be
issued. Supervisor Petrie wants
the road tax raised to five dollars
so every man in the territory could
pay his pro rate toward roads and
their upkeep. The idea seems a
A Hocking, once of Maui, is to
build a brick structure on King
street at Nunanu where the Mer
chants Exchange now stands. The
building will take in the Chinese
Club and extend up Nuuanu for a
listance- It is to be of brick.
I learned the other day from II.
P. Wood of the Promotion Commit
tee the probable cause for Great
Britain hanging back regarding the
exhibition. Wood says that when
the commissioners came out from
England to select a site they were
passed up like so many white chips
in a three dollar limit game. The
men were peeved and showed it.
From San Francisco the men' went
to British Columbia and in every
section they were given a glad hand
and a feast. The folks made them
welcome and when they got home
they told of it There was an im
mediate dislike for expositions on
American soil and the next the
people on the coast heard was that
Great Britain found such things
coming too close together to suit
them and would not come in. Wood
is in a position to know and he is
probably correct iruLis guess, though
it may be some other fellow's guess.
The committee here selected A. P.
Taylor of the Advertiser staff to go
to San Francisco and represent the
Territory during the fair. It would
have been hard to find a better man
though I am told that Wood had
some one else in view.

Subject to Change
On Sunday afternoon last the
whoie community of Maui was
shocked to hear of the death of
Mrs. Rolson Barnett. whose stage
name was Ayesha. I nder that
name she had traveled all over the
world giving exhibitions of hypno
tism. She has appeared in the Far
East and Honolulu, and was well
known to theater goers in other
parts of the world.
It seems that "Ayesha" and her
husband had been appearing in
Ililo and, some time ago, the lady
was seized with an illness. She
was treated by doctors but did not
improve. Then it was decided to
come to Maui on a professional trip,
and to see if the change would do
Mrs. Barnett any good.
Upon arrival at Wailuku it was
seen that Mrs. Barnett was in a had
way, and she was advised to go to
the Malulani Hospital. She did
this but, evidently, the disease had
obtained too strong a hold, as she
became weaker and weaker, and
suddenly expired at three o'clock
on Sunday afternoon. The body
was taken to Honolulu for crema
tion. The theatrical people in
Honolulu have gotten together a
sum of money to present to the lit
tle daughter of the dead woman.
