Ignace Jenn Paderewski, the famous
Polish pianist, Is a through passenger
aboard the S. S. Ventura for San Fran
cisco. Ho Is accompanied by his wife,
physician, manager, man and his wife's
maid. This morning Paderewski and
party got Into hacks and were driven
about the city. This is the first time
that the famous pianist has ever visit
"This Is certainly a most Interesting
place," said Paderewski this morning
before he left the vessel. "I regret ex
ceedingly that I can not remain longer
but the schedule of the steamers is
such that we could not make arrange
ments to have the vessel arrive last
night so that I could play. I would like
very much to visit these islands and
see more of them. We visited the vol
canoes In New Zealand.
"The trip has been delightful. Aus
tralia and New Zealand were new pla
ces to me. The trip that was made
from France to Australia was the long
est that I have yet undertaken. We
were to have gone to India, China and
Japan, but the war necessitated a
change In our plans." But while Pade
rewski was explaining Interest In Ho
nolulu the hackdrivers were making It
interesting enough for the manager by
trying to charge him enormous rates
for cab hire.
Paderewski would have given a con
cert in Honolulu had It not been for his
inability to arrange for a change in the
schedule so as to give him one night in
port. It had been hoped that the ves
sel could be gotten Into Honolulu 'last
night so that the concert could be giv
en. J. D. Spreckels, of the Oceanic S.
S. Company, was cabled to by W. Ad

and requested to order the Ventura to
get Into Honolulu Monday night, but
Spreckels was absent from San Fran
cisco and the arrangement could not bo
Adllngton, the manager, bad planned
a very extended tour for the artist.
From Marseilles, they were to go'-ft
Australia and New Zealand, and then
to China. Japan and India, and return

peared In any of those places, and the
Sultan of Turkey had expressed the de

Japanese-Russian wnr necessitated h
change of these plans however. It was
SAMOA DISCUSSING IMPORTATION
OF THE MONGOOSE TO KILL
APIA, Samoa, Nov. 21. The Govern
ment has received a letter from an uu
thorutlve source In Honolulu, In which
the writer condemns the Importation
of the Mongoose as a. rat exterminator.
The writer states that these animals
were Introduced into the Islands of Ha
waii, Maul, Molokal and Oahu. and at
first gave every satisfaction ns rat kill
ers, nut wnen tne rats necame scarce,
they accustomed themselves to eating
eggs, poultry, etc., in consequence or
which the rats increased again.
No mongoose were Introduced Into
Kauai as the rats were not very trou
blesome there. As n result there Is an
abundance of poultry on that Island.
The writer advises against the Intro
duction of the mongoose to Samoa, as
the animal Is not to be relied upon as
a rat killer.
This opinion, coming as it does from
a place where bitter experiences have
been made with these animals, carries
bo much weight that It should effectual
ly stop the Importation of the mon
goose to Samoa.
SUIT BROUGHT FOR
THE UNITED STATES SEEKING
TO RECOVER STOLEN POST OF
A suit has been commenced In the,
United States District Court by U. S.
District Attorney Breckons and his as
sistant J. J.' Dunne against the two
sureties for Levi P. Kauhoe, formerly
postmaster at Kapaa, who Is now serv

When Kauhoe's shortages were dis
covered and his books were examined
he was found to be short $1891, and up
on promised restitution of this amount
he got off with a comparatively light
decided that the prospects of playing
in Japan, China and India were not
promising, so all of those countries
were cut out of the tour, and It was
decided to return home by way of Am
erica. The prospects for concerts In
America are llatterlng, so Manager Ad
llngton arranged for a series of 50 con
certs hi America and Paderewski Is
now going to fill thtm.
Paderewski Is accompanied this trip
by a special physician. This is the first
time that such an attendant has been
necessary, but Inasmuch as the orig
inal plans called for the artist visiting
countries where he would be more sub
ject to sickness than In Europo or
America, It was decided to have a phy
sician in constant attendance upon the
artist. Dr. M. RatynskI, a Frenchman,
Is the physician.
Herr Paderewski Is exactly like his
picture. His bunchy hair Is the most
striking feature about him. Its a dull
faded blonde hue. He wears a mus
tache and Imperial, red In color. In size
he Is rather a small man of nervous
temperament. He is very nffable and
converses perfectly in English, al
though with a slight foreign accent. He
was especially Interested to learn about
Hawaii and when Informed of the ex-
tent of the volcanoes expressed the ut
During the voyage the visitor did
not give any concerts aboard the ves
sel,' but he participated regularly every
day. The Stelnway Company had sent
a special piano to the steamer for him.
This morning he purchased a newspa
per and passed considerable time read
ing at the breakfast table.
Paderewski Is paid an all but fabu
lous sum. He Is paid 1,000 pounds for
every performance. During the present
trip he has thrown away enormous
sums by refusing to appear when the
booking has not been up to expecta-1
tlons. He was advertised to give a
concert at Auckland last Thursday
week but failed to make his appear- i
"nnee When he discovered that some
s,core of Important settjers who had
traveled hundreds of miles to hear the !
great tone poet were furious, he sent
out his agent to the hotels nnd invited
the growlers to a private recital at his
hotel. He also gave them a supper and
they declared him "a jolly good fel
low." It did not matter what the
crowd thought of the matter.
BUT RANJHE SHIP
ONE OF ASSISTANTS ON THE
VENTURA BECAME HYSTERICAL
AND HAD TO BE REMOVED.
One of the stewardesses on the S. S.
Ventura caused considerable excite
ment aboard the vessel last night. Slip
suddenly went out of her head. Some
said she was crazy but the ship's sur
geon diagnosed the case under a more
gentle classification by calling it hys
teria. In any event the woman acted
crazy enough, for she proceeded to take
possession of the saloon last night.
"Ship Ahoy" she cried ns she bound
ed through the door, dressed In n morn
ing wrapper with her hair hanging,
like Ophelia's and Jane's down her
back. Paderewski and some others
were playing whist but the excited
stewardess soon broke up the game.
Most of the passengers were out on
the deck but they were soon attracted
by the cries of the woman, First she
would laugh like a hyena and then she
would break Into a (It of sobbing. She
evidently wanted to get Paderewski to
play a cake walk for her but when
the music was not forth coming, she
waltzed around the room without mu
sic. The woman had to be removed from
the saloon nnd placed In the care of
the ship's physician. The woman went
out of her head some trips ago on the
S. S. Sierra. She recovered and was
then placed aboard the Ventura but
the malady, appears to have returned.
She will probably be transferred to a
hospital ashore, and kept there until
