i Honolulu, July j. Hy nil agree
I ment readied yesterday, between the
creditors of the Itttcr-Islaml Tele
graph Company and the directors
of that corporation, the Wireless
concern, the affairsof that company
are in a fair way to be adjusted.
Then Henry Waterhouse Trust
Company will act as the fiscal agent
of the concern and will advance the
money necessary to place the sys
tem in such physical condition as
will enable it to take advantage of
the. subsidy granted by the Legis
lature. There were present at a meeting
held yesterday morning representa
tives of all the heavy creditors of the
concern. The plans for thearrange
ment were submitted nt the sug
gestion of the men who have had
control of the affairs of the Wireless
Company. These contemplate the
payment of a substantial advance
against the bills outstanding and
the provision for the completion of
the system. The Trust Company
has nil arrangements made for the
financing of the proposition nnd as
soon as the papers nre all signed
placing the company in its hands
will order the work to proceed.
By the terms of the agreement
the Waterhouse concern will take
complete control of the working of
the Wireless concern. The busi
ness will be transacted through its
offices and there will be uothiuii
left of the old management. Some
such arrangement as thisis ucccsary
as the Wireless is now without the
aid which has been guaranteed for
a year past by the business com
munity. This agicemcut expired
with the opening of this mouth and
it now becomes necessary to arrange
for the exteusiousaud improvements
which will make available the $t,-
ooo a month which will enable the
system to continue its operation.
The cash needed at once will
be about $1,500, which will pay
most of the bills and salaries. Then
the work will go on in the putting
in of the improvements. Just what
these will cost has not been settled.
There are still estimates to be put
in and until all are at hand, there
will be no definite estimate of the
total of the cost. The immediate
work is the completion of the Na
wiliwili station, which will enable
the opening of communication with
Kauai. There is now a proper pole
in place and during the week there
will be tests made. The Barber's
Point station is ready for work and
communication will follow immedi
ately upon the completion of the
The land lines will represent the
largest expenditure which will be
necessary in the rehabilitation of
the system. About 120 miles of
line must be built. This will com
prise the stretching of the wire
from this city to Barber's Point, a
distance of thirty miles, and from
Mahukona to Hilo, ninety miles.
It is understood that the telephone
companies have agreed to permit
the stringing of the telegraph wires
upon their poles, which means the
escaping of the heaviest portion of
the cost. The laud lines are neces
sary before there can lie the proper
connection as contemplated in the
It is the plan to have the perman
ent stations of the company Nawili
wili, Barber's Points, Molokai, La
haiua, Mahukona, as the Lauai
station is to be cut out very soon.
The Irish Color.
Green is universally ( r;garded,
l says the Westminster Gazette, as
the Irish color, but antiquarians
'says that green as the national flag
of Ireland is of comparatively
modern origin. The latest autho
rity to express and opinion on the
subject is the Rev. Canon French,
learned member of the Roynl
Irish Academy. He does not ac
cept the explanation that the green
'flag was adopted by the United
Irishmen at the close of the eight
eenth century by blending the
orange and blue, the latter being
then regarded by some as the Irish
flag. He asserts that the emerald
green standard was used in Ireland
in the sixteenth century, but it was
not till the eighteenth century that
it became the national color.
HrlciitlMft Kvolvc New Theory of
New York, June 20. The Sun's
Loudon cable says: The world's
foremost searchers after the ulti
mate secrets of the universe have
at length committed themselves to
a theory, which has for some time
been foreshadowed and has now ap
parently been substantiated by
study of the new substnnce called
radium. Professor Crookes, the
other day in Berlin, and Professors
Lodge and Curie, this week in Lou
don, have confidently proclaimed
that it is easy to define this great
revolution of science in scarcely
more than a sentence. To compre
hend it, however, is almost ns far
beyond the power of the human
mind as the idea of eternity or in
The old theory that ntoms of ele
ments consist of indivisible units of
matter has now been definitely dis
carded. Instead, it appears that
each atom is a whole stellar system
ot infinitely smaller, but absolutely
identical units, all in orbital motion.
The hydrogen atom consists of 700
such units or ions. The nature or
identity of each substance depends
upon the number of such ions con
tained in each atom, thus 11,200
ions in each atom produces what is
known as oxygen, and 137,200 of
the same ions, if combined in a
single atom, would yield gold.
The nature of these ions is, for
want of a newer word, electrical.
In other words, electricity and mat
ter are one and the same thing.
Professor Lodge and his associates
believe that matter is nut stable in
its atoms as has been supposed here
tolore Thus, water may be separat
ed into oxygen and hydrogen, but
it was never before imagined that
atoms themselves were capable of
disintegration. Professor Lodge
suggested that this is a normal pro
cess of nature.
Professor Curie, the discoverer of
radium, in experiments at the Royal
Institution last night showed that
radium spontaneously and continu
ously disengaged heat and gave off
emanations similar to itself in con
stant and even violent streams or
radiations. In other words, the
120,000 ions which compose each
atom of radium rotated so violently
that they flew npart into original
units. It has been calculated, how
ever that this efilux from radium is
so infinitesimal that a square inch
of surface would lose only one grain
in ten thousand million years.
Lodge surmises this process of dis
integration of atoms mav constitute
the evolution ot chemical elements.
The whole theory, in effect, is an
astronomical one. Chemistry has,
in fact, become the astronomy of
infinitesimal. One is led to wonder
if the earth and other planets are
mere ions forming a single atom of
higher universe, where, perhaps,
they constitute a speck of dust that
worries the careful housewife in the
world next above us. At all events,
the world is clearly on the verge of
the greatest revelation science has
yet vouchsafed to mankind.
A Koyitl L'oal Stoker.
The story is current that the
Duke of Conuaught, when coming
home from India in the battleship
Renown, determined to inquire per
sonally into the conditions of naval
stokers. In spite of protests he de
scended into the boiler room.
Having been provided with a proper
kit and a shovel, he proceeded to
stoke coal with all the enthusiasm
at his command. At the end of
half an hour his royal highness
confessed he had had enough, and
he yielded up his shovel with the
admission that naval stokers hnd
no easy time.
