Special Costumes and Trappings From
- Germany Have Been Shipped in
Spite of War Rehearsing For Big
Feature Soon to Begin.
HONOLULU, December 22. The
"Circus Comique," one of the biggest
features of the 1915 Mld-Paclfic Car
nival, and an event upon which Director-General
James D. Dougehrty
was buildcd high, is now assured.
Mr. Dougherty has received word
through George rtodiek of Hackfeld
& Company of tho receipt of a cable
carrying tho advice that the costumes
and other trappings ordered from Ger
many had boon shipped.
A further exchange of under-water
messages will now be indulged in
with the idea or learning specifically
just when tho shipment was made and
about what time It will reach Hono
lulu. The director-general had about
made up his mind that it would be
necessary to forego the Circus Comi
que, and expressed tho greatest do
light when he received the news that
will permit him lo include this feat
ure in his elaborate progtam of sur
prises. Tho Circus Comique will bo one of
the. distinctive features of tho 1915
celebration. Those residents of the
islands who have seen tho circuses
which tour tho mainland each year
will get some idea of what tho Circus
Comique is to be like. There will bo
tho customary "big top," rings, side
shows, acrobats, clowns and animals
and, In fact, all the paraphernalia of
an up-to-the-minuto circus. The cos
tumes, which have been ordered from
Germany, alono will be an attraction
and Immediately upon their arrival
tho rehearsing of tho circus perform
ers will commence.
A featuro of tho Circus Comique
will be tho side shows, Including tho
Village of Nations, which will depict
tho native life of tho majority of na
tionalities represented in the Hawaii

Eligible Candidates For Lahaina
Office Apparently Hard to Find
. Job Likely to Be Too Short to Be
Attractive Heine Won't Take it
Tho democrats seem to be having
a difficult time in getting a man to
fill tho shoes of Postmaster Arthur
Waal, of Lahaina. Several near ap
pointments have been mado-but al
ways something seems to crop up to
leave tho ofllco In tho very efficient
hands of tho man who had held tho
post since beforo annexation.
Kcohokalole Lost In Shuffle.
A fow months ago the cablo an
nounced that Moses Keohokalolo's
namo had been sent to the President,
and tho appointment was as good as
made. Last Friday tho Washington
dispatches announced that Otto F.
Heine, of Oahu, has been nomnlatcd
by tho President, and his namo was
beforo tho Senate. Just what happen
ed to eliminate Keohokalolo has never
been brought out. But for somo rea
son his backers had to withdraw him,
Is pretty well known.
Heine Turns Down Job.
Closo on tho heels of tho news of
Heine's appointment, followed tho
statement from Helno himself that ho
wouldn't tako it. It seems that while
waiting for tho Lahaina postoillco
plum to drop, an apple fell off tho
patronago treo into Heine's hands
Iij tho form of a deputy U. S. Marshal
ship, under Marshal Smlddy, and this
proved so satisfactory that tho La
haina job Is again begging. Accord
ing to reports, tho placo has beon of
fered to a number of democratic
workers, who have looked tho ground
over, and promptly sldo stepped. Tho
ofllco is said to bo ono of tho hardest
ones in tho Island to fill, whilo tho
pay Is not onough to tempt tho kind
of a man that Undo Sam domands,
particularly with the practical asaur
anco that tno job will not last longer
than tho 191C elections.

charge of being a deserter from Troop
M, 4th U. S. Cavalry. He was taken

tho wanted man, who was later locat
ed by Ferrelra at tho Fernandez Ho
tel, Paia. An effort was made to ar

at other points on Maul. He claimed
to be in search of some person, tho'
for what reason, lie refused to state,
and was on tho point of leaving for
Hawaii, when ai rested. He is only
twenty-five years of age, of good ad
