The house warming given by Mr.
and Mrs. John T. Moir New Year's
eve at Papaikoti set the high-water
mark for plantation hospitality in a
country where hospitality loves to
touch high levels. The occasion
was the proper dedication of the
new plantation home, finished last
year for the popular manager of the
Onomea Sugar Company's planta
tion north of Hilo. The whole
country side was there. The new
plantation house was built on broad .
and generous lines. Its wide lauais
and spacious rooms are large, but
not so large as the hearts of the

merry makers; the lanats were
crowded with on-lookers, and those
who enjoy a quiet game at cards
were anM.ly provided for. More
than three hundred guests met to-
gethcr under a hospitable roof to
assist in the "Hoose-Heatin," as it
was spelled on the cards.
Every hack and coach and 'bus
in Hilo had been chartered long in
advance to take the people out the
distance of five miles to Papaikou,
where the Onomea plantation house rT . , T . i r i

The Hilo orchestral baud was early
on the scene to furnish music, and
at.the entrance stood the host and
hostess to extend open-handed
greeting to all.
The beautiful dining-room had
been cleared for the dancers. This
room, being three in one, gave am
ple space for those who wanted to
dance. The music floated in through
open windows from the orchestra on
the lanai, and under the direction of
Mr. McKeuzic of Hakalau the
dancers made merry until near mid
night, when the signal was given to
repair to the tables for refreshments.
The guests were directed across
the lawn, where a new boardwalk
led the way to a pavilion in which
the bounty of the host was further
maue apparent. Ihe tennis court
had been floored and roofed over,
and through the attistic touch of
many hands had been transformed
into a banquet hall. Five tables,
each with covers for an hundred
guests, parallelled the length of the
hall. When the guests had been
seated a row of arc lights pendant

with the generous appointments of
the whole affair, and was served
under the supervision of Hilo's
well-known caterer, D. Lycurgus.

his arrival in the Hawaiian Islands
a few years ago. He spoke of his

omit to remind his friends that as
assistant bookkeeper for Onomea he
had been of some help to, the capa

' to most people of this island. He
arrived in Hawaii from Scotland
about fifteen years ago and went to
work on' Waiakea plantation in
charge of a gang; his first change
was to Wainaku. He subsequently
j worked in various capacities at Pa

Honomu and back again to Papai

' plantation, succeeding Goodale who

, Under Mr. Moir s management
Onomea has greatly prospered.
From a yield of about 7,000 tons of
sugar per annum he has brought it
up to 14,000 tons last year, and this

THEATRE PIKE HOltltOIt.
Ncnrly Six Hundred I'orMi In a
lluruliiK Piny House.
Chicago, Dec. 31. The holocaust
at the Iroquois theater on Randolph
street between Dearborn and State,
which occurred during the produc
tion of "Mr. Bluebeard," was the
most distressing of any that ever
occurred in the United States. No
less than 562 dead bodies have been
taken Irom the theater, besides a
large number of injured, many of
them fatally.
The cause of the fire was a faulty
electric wire which ignited the
scenery. An attempt was made to
drop the asbestos curtain, but the
latter stuck half way, while the
(1 .mou cr.rn.wl nc tiri,rrti tlnAnr
' ' "
The gas tanks took fire and ex
ploded, spreading the flames into
the auditorium. The theater was
crowded with an audience consist
iug mainly of women and children
who fought tooth and nail to es
cape. The exits were jammed with
a struggling, shrieking, dying mass
of humanity. Flesh was trumpled
from bodies in the mad rush for
safety. But a few people were
burned to death, the most of the
victims being asphyxiated and then
mangled under foot. An unfinished
fire escape proved to be a death
trap. The actors escaped by the
stage exits. Many prominent fam
ilies suffered losses. While the fire
was in progress the police bad great
difficulty in handling crowds of
frantic relatives.
Jurors Collapse
Chicago, Dec. 31 Work in the
ruins of the Iroquois theater pro
ceeded throughout last night and
today.
The number of dead is now
placed at 564. There are 157 in
jured men, women and children in
the hospitals, and it is believed
fully one-third of this number can
not live. Three hundred and four
teen persons arc missing.
The failure of the asbestos cur
tain to work and thus confine the
fire to the stage is believed to be
due to the curtain being caught by
a wire. This wire was used in one
of the principal spectacular features
of the play in which an actress was
made to fly over the heads of the
audience.
The theater has been carefully
guarded throughout the night and
day, the scenes in the crowd as
corpses are borne out being hardly
less heart-rending than the horror
within. A coroner's inquest is be
ing held. A number of the jurors
on entering the building were un
able to stand the horrible sight pre
sented by the corpses in heaps.
Some jurors collapsed.
President Roosevelt has tele
graphed to Mayor Harrison extend
ing his sympathy to the people of
Chicago. Many nations have
cabled expressions of'sympathy.
