More I'unds Needed.
The plans for the new building at Ililo
Hoarding School are gradually assuming
shape under the architects supervision.
Preliminary work 011 the grounds is
already being done. The old building
erected in 1856, which has served its pur
pose for forty-uveii years was moved
back during the Christmas vacation to n
point about one bundled feel in the rear
of the original site Here it will con
tinue to be used for class-room purposes
until the new building is completed.
After which the plan is to use it for a
work shop for the manual training de
partment. The sum subscribed toward the build
ing fund is not sufficient as yet to warrant
the immediate proceeding with the erec
tion of the new building, but the hearty
co-operation met with, gives confidence
that within a short time the work will
begin. Those in charge of the work,
and those who have so liberally con
tributed want to see the work go on.
There ure a large number of people
who intend to help in this improvement
to the town. Such help is needed now.
The carrying out of these plans is only
waiting until the funds are sufficient.

Will 1,'lve at Nutm With HiihIiioih In
Geo. S. McKcu.ie was born under n
lucky star and whichever way he turns
he has never lost. Just now, owing to
business interests on the Coast and the
necessity of living closer to his family of
growing children, he has severed his
connection with the Volcano Stables and
Transportation Company and will leave
for the Mainland about April 1. Lest
this change might appear to Mr. McKeu
zic to be not for the best, Dame Fortune
played a high card for him. He had
word by the Inst tiiail that a gold mine in
which he owns a big-block of stock, has
turned out to be a bonanza. The devel
opment done last summer proved the
mine n uayer and McKeuzic's interest is
sufficient to guarantee him a good income
from that source alone.
Mr. McKcuzie has had under consider
ation for some time the proposition of
returning to Napa, where his children
live, and engaging in the general trade
of hay, grain and stock shipping ontiu
Coast. He will establish business head
quarters in San Francisco. He will make
11 specialty of shipping feed stuff and
stock to Hawaii and the Philippine
Islands. Mr. McKeuzie is not leaving
the Islands on account of any dissatis
faction with Ililo or Its future business
prospects. He believes in Hllo and will
retain his interests here. He will not
sell his shares in the Volcano Stables, an
institution which he has managed with
ability and success for the past two years.
He expects to make frequent visits to
Ililo in the future.
Mr. McKcuzie assumed the manage
ment of the Volcano Stables April I,
1901, and during the past two years has
raised the establishment to a prosperous
condition in spite of general dull times.
The company owns over thirty head
more of horses than it did two years ago.
The rolling stock is in the best of condi
tion. The stage lines of the company
reach from Homiapo, Kau, to Kawaihae
in Kohala. The harness shop, black
smith and paint shops with a thorough
mechanic at the head of each department
are showing splendid increase in busi
In his two year's residence in Hllo

would be entitled to the reward. After
recognizing Torres and following him

of twenty feet of him in a cane field,
rutiuiug'a risk of being cut up as Torres
was well armed. I proceeded to the
police station where two police officers
were placed at my disposal. I led these
to the place where Torres was hidden.
Arriving there, I indicated to the police
man where Torres was, saying 'There is
"Torres made no resistance and after
being haudcufled he was kicked near the

They certainly were not entitled to it,
but the money was kept in the gang.
The Sheriff did not expect fro j me nnv
present like the one he received from his
men the other day. The Sheriff excuses
himself by saying 'If Mr. Oak was en
titled to the reward why did he not per
sonally capture and bring to the station
the escaped prisoner.' The SherifT him

Hcmbers or Hllo Cotillion Club (lire
Merry Colonial llnll.
The Colonial ball, given last Monday
evening at Spreckels hall in honor of the
birth of George Washington win 11 social
success and an artistic triumph. The
officers of the Cotillion Club and the
committees in charge of the various ar
rangements have received congratulations
from all sides. Those ill charge omitted
no detaM in the line of their respective
duties. The decorations were all on the
Colonial order. White Ionic columns
were erected 011 nil sides of the room.
From capital to capital, there was sus
pended a light strand of fern making n
frici6 of beauty around the room. Por
traits of the period, draperies and bric-a-brac
adorned the walls. The decoration
committee was us follows: Miss E. Peck,
Miss I. Richardson, Miss II. Hapai, Mrs.
Whltehouse, Mr. W. I. Madeira, Mr.
Win. Weight, Mr. F. West, Mr, F. How
land, Dr. M. Wachs, Mr. T. C. Ridgway.
The guests were early to arrive and
with their coming, costumes of the eigh
teenth century mingled with the up to
date fashion of the twentieth. The im
portant event of the evening was the
damping of the minuet. Twenty-four of
Ililo's most graceful dancers had !ccn
selected to appear in the dance in which
Washington was so able to distinguish
himself. Miss Elvira Richaadson did
the drilling which was necessary to make
this scene a success. That it was n suc
cess is owing to her skill and persistence.
Mrs. Tracy played the minuet at the
Siano. The dancers led by Mrs. W. I.
ladcira and Miss Ivy Richardson came
iu from the side rooms. They were Mrs.
Homer L. Ross and Geo. N. Day; Miss
Haltie Hapai and C. N. Pronty Jr.; Mrs.
E. D. Baldwin and E. C. Mellor; Mrs. A.
A. McKenney and Ralph Holding: Miss
Emily Peck and T. C. Ridgway: Miss
Lilinoe Hapai and Dr. Milton Rice; Miss
Harriet Huggins nud Ronald Kennedy;
Mrs. W. I. Madeira and W. S. McLean;
Miss Mabel Peck and A. II. Jackson;
Mrs. Milton Rire and Tiios. Guard; Miss
Frac Eaton and G. W. A. Hapai Jr.
The dancing was frequently interrupted
by outbursts of applause from the spec
tators. The minuet over, the gcrman
firoceeded merrily with everybody danc
ng until long after midnight.
The costuming was brilliant both 011
the part of the ladies and the gentlemen.
Gentemen wore suits made of stuffs of
every color. In pinks there were the
following tints and hues: kiss of dawn,
dying rose, kitten's tongue, bridal blush
and cupid's feather. In the vivid colors
there was the modem automobile red
melting into the faint and misty hues of
colonial days. Captain's-glory and Smoke-of-Vesuvius
were popular among the
duller tints. The ladies wore exquisite
gowns of most exquisite fabriques. The
tints and shades were delict ti and semi-meutal-fiuc
as the very memories of our
dear progenitors whose sons and daugh
ters belong to Societies of the Revolution.
The Colonial maids affected such colors
as Eveuittg-mist-on-the-mountaius, fading
hope and other pallid grays. Flight-of-the-lark
and Faithful-shepherd blues
made killing effects and you should have
seen the Canary-tail yellows and Mount
Vernon greens. The gowns were all of
1776 mode. Then the Coiffures and
beauty patches, the way a modem girl
can utilize the many conceits of her
grandma, is amazing. The beauty patches
were artistically revived at the Colonial
ball. Not all people this day kiiow the
meaning of beauty patches and this is
quite essential to know. A dot about an
inch below the left eye denotes fondness
of adventure. A spot in the center of
the left cheek announces that the wearer
is engaged. A similar patch on the right
cheek proclaims that the wearer is mar
ried. Worn just below the right eye it
spells audacity. Placed at the outer
corner of the right eye it betokens an
affectionate nature. Worn alluringly up
on the upper lip conveys a meaning, un
mistakable. On the brow, the patch de
notes dignity, force and reserve; on the
chin frivolity. So if one could only re
member how patches were worn at the

Ancient Kellcs Found Iu 11 Cure la
A report was brought iu this week
from Kona telling of some new ami in
teresting discoveries iu the caves in Kea
lakekua cliff. After much effort mid 110
little danger, Sam Hall managed to gain
entrance to a cave hitherto unexplored.
Some rare tapas were found, many of
which were in an excellent stac of pres
ervation. Calabashes of rare kou, and
hula skirts made fiom human hair were
brought forth to light from the tomb in
which tliey had lain since the time of the
In one cave there was found au iron
coffin. The lid had been removed and
the occupant of the narrow house was
gone. Old natives who were interviewed
upon the discovery tell of a visit of King
Kalakaua some years ago, when he en
tered these ancient burial places and re
moved the bones of some of the royal
dead to the mausoleum at Honolulu. It
is the opinion of these natives that the
! broken iron coffin once contained the re
mains of a close relative of either the
first or second Kamehameha.
In the cave which contained the t.ip.i,
there was also found the skirt made of
plaited human hair, bracelets und anklets
studded with white teeth, nud gourds
and many other rare and ancient curios.
However, there was no sign that this
cavern had been used as a burial place.
After exploring this cavern, the daring
cliff climbers scaled the side of the preci
pice, a distance of fifty feet, by means of
a ladder. No important finds were made
after this laborious climb. Some of these
articles are now in possession of Senator
J. D. Paris 011 whose lands the caves are
located; but most of them were left un
disturbed iu the gloom which had hidden
them for decades.
