Formal (,'eremoiiles of llcgluulni;
Among all the exercises Satur
day forenoon, the morning of thc
fourth, thc sharpest interest cen
tered around Philip Peck ami n
golden spade. In the hands of Mr.
Peck the golden spade was used, as
thc humble implement to turn over
thc first sod, making the actual be
giuiug of thc construction of n rail
road, that will connect Hilo with
the rich producing territory of Ha
makua and Kohala.
The ceremony took place im
mediately following the Fourth of
July literary exercises. The ter
minus of thc Hilo Railroad was
within a few rods of the speakers'
stand. Superintendent Lambert
had provided two engines, facing
each other and joined by a banner
on which was painted two gigantic
clasped hands. One engine was
lettered in gold "Kohala-Hilo Rail
road;" thc other "Hilo Kailroad,"
indicating thc union and harmony
between two powerful agencies for
thc upbuilding of Hilo. Upon thc
tender of the Kohala-Hilo engine,
there was a group of men and wo
men. In the center was Philip
Peck and his golden spade. Fol
lowing an invocation by Rev. Mr.
Nash, Mr. Peck addressed the
multitude which filled the open
space and streets. He spoke of his
success in promoting thc negotia
tions which mean the building of
the road. He outlined thc mntcrial
benefits that must accrue to Hilo
and the country to be traversed by
the road. He cited examples of
prosperous communities which had
been made so by the advent of rail
roads. He analyzed the commercial
situation of the Island of Hawaii
and showed how the proposed ad
ditional transportation facilities
would add to the general prosperity
of the city and country. He spoke
of the duty of every one interested
in Hilo to lend a helping hand to
an enterprise which beurs directly
upon the fortunes of all. Upon the
conclusion of his remarks, the party
deceuded from the locomotive and
Mr. Peck sunk the spade into the
soil and by that act dedicated alike
the energies of labor and the potency
of capital to the task which means
so much for 'Hilo.
The entire program of thc forenoon
was enlivened by the presence of
the Territorial band which rendered
excellent music at frequent inter
vals. tiim iiakukcuk.
The feast prepared by the barbe
cue committee was ready for the
hungry hundreds and at 11:30 a.
m. the carvers were busy serving
choice cuts of roast beef. Scores of
helpers with wooden plates, passed
the toothsome viands to the crowd
ing visitors. For an hour and a
half the work of feeding the multi
tude went on and no one was per
mitted to go away hungry. There
were cords of white bread aud beef
enough for an army. Jim Morris
had charge of thc barcecue and
with his assistants is entitled to
congratulations for his success with
the difficult task.
Hanna, Wyo., June 30. An ex
plosion in a local coal mine occurred
today while the full complement of
laborers were at work. Two hun
dred men are known to be im
prisoned. Twenty-five bodies have
been recovered aud it is believed
that many others have been killed.
The full force ot miners who es
caped are engaged in the rescue
work, but this is necessarily slow
on account of the cave-ins caused
by the explosion.

Washington, D. C, July 1.

the President as United States Min
ister to Argentine. Harrett served

to objections from Japan, reconsid
ered his action.

Rome, July 5. Leo XIII is dy

as often proven untrue, today in

The bedside of the dying man is
surrounded by the Cardinals now
here, and other dignitaries of the
church. Many inquiring telegrams
from European monarchs received
and to all' the answer is that the
death of His Holiness is very nt'ar.
Already there has begun, the
speculation as to his probable suc
cessor. The leading names men-,
tioued for the headship of the
church are Cardinals Rampolla,
Vannutelli, Agliardi and Satolli, of
the Italian members of the college
and Cardinal Gibbons of America,
the latter being the candidate of the
It is known that the Pope Jias
indicated his wish that Rampolla
he chosen to succeed him, but this
seems impossible. Cardinal Satolli,
to whom Leo XIII gave the delicate
mission of inaugurating the repre

Comptroller Love was today assassi

recently dischai ged from his service.
The incident created tremendous
excitement and the police authori
ties immediately set out to capture
the murderer. The chase was a
short one, but the man showed
fight. The man was finally shot
and killed by the posse which at
tempted to place him under arrest.
Dvskntkry causes the death of
more people than smallpox and

it is dreaded more than a battle.
