W. R. Castle, chairman of tho War
Relict Committee which is collecting
fundR for the velief ot tho widows and
orphans caused by tho great Euro

showing that up to Wednesday of

"Wo have yet to hear from Quito a
largo number of localities to which
letters have been sent, and tho com

be as generous as It has been up to
"In view of tho fact that tho com
munity has already been canvassed
for aid specifically to tho Germans
and specifically to tho English, and
that a considerable number of others
than those nationalities have paid In
money, it Is quite likely that the com
mittee may not Immediately extend
rt-llef to those two nations, "as ie un
dorstand that tho amount Bent tor-
ward to each is far In excess of our
entire collections to date."

The Chamber ot Commerce commit
teo which has in hand the spending

his wife, who would like tho Job of

care of tho rest house to bo built.
Anyone who has any Ideas on either
of these subjects, is assured of their

and is to secure payment of J30.000

tho foreclosure, the company will

The Koolau Itubber Company was

land. It was ono of the several com

on which a largo number of tre.es

be producing In paying quantity, tho
price of rubber Is so low that it does
not warrant tho cost of tapping. It is
understood that a comparatively small
number of the shareholders have been
carrying tho company along up to
tho present time, but feel that they
can no longer afford to do so, and
henco have taken steps to wind up
the affairs. For the past several
years, tho management of the planta
