It is the favorite buttonhole flower
of Governor Charles J. McCarthy,
and hardly a day passoB that he does
not wear this unusal type of

later in California. For the past 10
or 15 years he had made him home
in the Islands with his son.

On Cable Messages
Owing to the heavy delay in cable
transmission the following order has
been issued to the Commercial Paci
fic Cable Company by the censor:
"Hereafter no personal messages,
except those relating to death or
serious illness, will be allowed from
Honolulu to San Francisco, or the
Orient. It is requested that all busi
ness that can be accomplished by
letter be diverted from the cable."
For some months past the wireless
service with the coast has been barred
to all except government business
and press dispatches. The cable has
therefore become so overcrowded
that the new order had to be issued
to relieve the situation.
