The Honolulu Chamber of Com
mcrcc, has uiulcrtnken to raise the
necessary funds to keep the Nntioti
nl Gunrd of Hawaii in efficient
organization, has issued the follow
ing appeal to the public for funds :
Honolulu, T. II., June 22. 1905.
To our Fellow Citizens: The
Legislature of 1905 failed to make
any appropriation for the support
of the Territorial Militia lor the en
suing biennial period.
The Chamber of Commerce has
met to consider the unfortunate
situation thus brought about and,
pursuant to resolution, its Presi
dent has appointed the undersigned
committee to open a public subs
cription for funds sufficient to main
tain the National Guard in a state
of efficiency for the two years be
ginning July 1, 1905.
The United States Government
provides necessary arms and equip
ment up to the value of $7,500.00
per annum, but it is estimated by
the officers of the Guard that the
sum of at least $2,800.00 a year is
further necessary for its maintain
ance. This money will be used for
barrack and encampment disburse
ments, including sustenance, sup
plies, transportation, and other or
We have arranged with the bank
ing house of Bishop & Co. to re
ceive, acknowledge, and hold, sub
ject to the disposition of the Cham
ber of Commerce any and all sub
scriptions to a voluntary offering
by the people.
The National Guard is made up
of our own volunteer citizens, who
serve without pay, and it is devoted
to the safeguarding of the Islands
of Hawaii nei from domestic vio
lence and invasion, and in time of
war, becomes available with similar
organizations throughout every
State and Territory of the Union as
a part of the illustrious American
May we not ask that the people
whe love peace and who stand for
law and order, will, for the honor
of Hawaii, contribute as they are
able, to this necessary and worthy
Single subscriptions from twenty
five cents upward will be thank
fully received and acknowledged
and we trust that the response
from individuals and from organiz
ed bodies will be generous and
show that all our people believe in
maintaining at its present nigh
standard of efficiency the National
Guard of the Territory.
If this be done, the legislatures
will so provide for its maintenance
that popular subscriptions need not
again be solicited for its support.
Those who may desire to sub
scribe will please deposit with, or
remit by check, registered letter, or
postal money order, to Bishop &
Co., Honolulu, that the same is for
the "Militia Fund;" or subscrip
tions may be sent in care of any
Honolulu newspaper which will
gladly give public acknowledge
ment of the gift.

As mysterious, as uncontroll
able, as treacherous and entertain
ing as the vast ocean, which lies
only a few leagues to the west of
its borders, says the New York
Tribune, is the great sea of sand
which forms a large portion of Cali
fornia's greatest desert, known, be
cause of its proximity to the river
of that name, as the Colorado des
This desert is the wind's favorite
playground. He comes over the
mountains, from ploughing the
mighty deep, and works strange
fancies in the pliable sands. He
duplicates the great billows of the
turbulent ocean; he imitates the
rippling waves of the placid sea;
he carves and builds and plays at
artist, sculptor and geometrician.
When he becones weary of his
sports he lashes himself into a fury
and tosses the sand a mile high in the
air and flings it broadcast over all
the plain, whirling and hurling the
particles till he obscures the sun
and brings a suffocating darkness
to the laud.
On the cast side of the desert he
is at present busy engulfing a rail
road. Already he has buried many
of the telegraph poles which stand
along the way, and he has invaded
the right of way of the road, and
the company is busily fighting to
hold possesion until a new Hue,
which is being built around the in
truding hills, shall be completed.
Then the rolling billows sand will
be allowed to sweep on undisputed.
In the southwestern portion of
the same desert is another range of
traveling hills. These arc more
wonderful, however, than the ones
which arc menacing the railroad,
for upon these hills the wind has
practiced his skill at carving geo
metrical figures. These hills arc
known as the Crescent hills. Each
is the shape of a true crescent, the
points of which are toward the
cast. A hill which is 50 feet high
is found to be 100 feet thick at the
base and 200 feet from point to
point of the duplicate horns of the
crescent. If a hill is twice that
height its other dimensions will be
found to have doubled also. Lit

Hint to llehtuuruiit Patrons.
The result of tipping with a lav
ish hand is strongly enforced in a
restuarant near the station of Pom
peii. In a prominent position is
placed a gaudily framed sketch of
the interior of the dining room,
with two clients taking their de
parture. One of them, a cowed
looking individual, is struggling
into his overcoat, while two waiters
stand near him, the one smiling de
risively at the other, who displays
a tiny coin with a gesture of fierce
contempt. , On the opposite of the
room a guest is seen surrounded by
three waiters, one helping him
with his coat, another brushing his
hat, the third bowing obsequiously
and holding his stick.
The moral is obvious, but allow
ance is made for the proverbial ob
tuscuess of northern nations, and
the picture is inscribed, in large
letters, "The Results of Ilenevo-lencc."
