there are electric lamps in the trees
and the rooms are lighted to a point
of cheerfulness. Saturday nights
the management gives a dance and
there was one due last week but
when it was suggested to Mr. Herts
chc that it would be a kindness if
he would postpone it, in order that
a dance be given by the young
women swimmers in order to raise
money to bring coast champions to
Honolulu for the carnival, he acted
upon it at once and' put a notice in
the newspapers. The result was a
big crowd at the dance and the
biggest receipts ever taken at the
Outrigger Club. It means that two
swimmers will be brought down to
battle with the young women of the
If you are interested in the brew
cry you noticed a rise of a couple
of dollars in the shares last week.
1 supposed at the time that it was
duo to an announcement that a
melon was to be cut, but it seems
that there was another reason. In
the first place the regular dividend
was announced to be paid. That
was not surprising but it was pleas
ant news to those who held stock.
Among the brokers, I am told, there
was some kick for the reason that
there is a rule of the Exchange that
when a dividend is to be declared,
the Exchange is to be notified in
writing. In this instance it was
not done and, in the meantime,
those who were on the inside, and
who wished, could buy the stock
when it was low and sell when the
dividend was announced. Now
they tell me the dividend played
no part in the rise in price of
shares, but that there was inside
information to the effect that the
Gronna bill would be killed in com
mittee. 'Pliose who had this bought
to the extent of their possibilities and
the demand was such that the price
rose rapidly. I got this informa
tion from two brokers at two differ
ent times, so I feel bound to pass it
along with a feeling that there is
more truth in it than in the average
While on the subject of stocks 1
have some good stuff about Moun
tain King. Paul Isenberg told me
the other day that it was good, and
those who have stock should keep
it. Since then I have heard of a
man who made a personal inspec
tion of the property, buying in all
he could got, and cabling to the
coast to have his friends buy for
him. If you happen to have any
of the shares it may be as well to
hold them and see what sort of
prophets these people are. Isenberg
is the second vice-president of the
company and he spent a great deal
of time at the mine last summer.
The Star publishes an item
to the effect that von Woelwovth,
who is mentioned further up in
this letter, is engaged in picking
pineapples on this island. It is
said he would hardly be as expert
in that as he would be as team lima
on a plantation, because he is more
familiar with horses than pines.
.Take it from mo ho could do well
on a lemon orchard in California, if
ho had the price to get there.
Dankberg has not been asked his
opinion as to the whereabouts of
the man and he would not tell if he
knew. It is reported in the same
paper that Bridgewater may be up
against legal complications for the
way he toyed with the conventions
in the running of his newspaper.
U. S. District Attorney McCarn
is surely doing things in the matter
of sports. I have been under the
impression that where friendly box
ing was indulged in, the law could
not interfere but Jeff, if he will ex
cuse the familiarity, denounces tho
clubs where dues are paid, for on
couraging sparring matches. This
spoils some very good meets the
Moose have arranged for, and it is
likely they will have to be given
up. Surely McCarn has put such
sports on tho blink.
On Thursday last the annual

From Governor Pinkham comes a
request to publish the following
letter, which is. self explanatory.
Dec. 11, 1913.
I trust you will pardon my
troubling you in the following
matter, but it is of such vital im
portance to me that I venture to
asked for your interest and assist
ance. My youngest son, Havelock
Foy, has been in America for al
most two years. He was a mem
ber of a prospecting party consist
ing of 10 men and the chief, and
had been over a good part of
America; then they went to Mexico,
but left there, owing to the out
break of war. When we last heard
from him, they were on the Sand
wich Islands. His last letter to us was
written on October 10, 1912, from
Hawaii, Honolulu, and he said if
they did not make a strike there,
they would return to Mexico, or go
to Peru to look for the lost Incas'
gold mines, but that at all events,
he would write again in a few
weeks time, and let us know. Since
then, now over 14 months, we
have not had any news whatever
from him, and our anxiety is daily
growing unbearable. I wrote to
the police department both in
Mexico and Peru, but received no
replies, and am now trying other
means. I have asked our Lord
Lieutenant, our M. P., and others
to assist me. I have also 'written
to the British Consul in Mexico.
If I could get in touch with the
Press, so that I could advertise and
offer a reward for any information.
I do not know anything of the
police regulations in America, and
would humbly request, Sir, that
you would be good enough to assist
me, and would communicate with
the authorities on my behalf, as
unless I can get some assistance of
importance I fear my efforts will
be fruitless. My wife is an invalid,
and this anxiety is an added sorrow.
If we could even have the assurance
that my son was dead and had had
peace to die, and was decently
buried, it would almost be prefer
able to the torture of this dreadful
suspense. I have thought if the
police would take up the inquiry,
and offer a reward of say 100
pounds for any information that
would lead to his restoration to his
friends. My son is about 5 ft. 9
in. in height, dark hair and eyes,
strong face; fresh complexion,
probably clean shaven, strongly
built, muscular figure, age 28,
name: George Havelock Welling
ton Foy, probably called "Hal;"
had had a good military training.
I shall be only glad to bear any
expense incurred, I am prepared
to do anything in my power to
find my son, and if you can sug
gest anything, or assist me, I shall
be deeply grateful. Every moment's
delay seems endless to me. We
fear foul play. My boy is wise and
steady, and always wrote home
With many apologies, believe me
