A Fnmillnr Building Is Torn Down.
The tearing down of the old frame build
formerly the Owl Drug Store on

ing was erected originally by Joe Vicrrn

Ice Cream Parlor. It was n popular ren
dezvous for the lads nud lassies of that
day, nnd the only establishment of its
kind on the island of Hawaii.
Later the building was converted into
Martin's Drug Store nnd successively oc
cupied by J, D. Kennedy, watchmaker, J.
M. Hcriug, jeweler, asn Chinese restau
rant, by F. C. LeBlond's gent's furnish
ing goods, and lastly by the Owl Drug

building has not been occupied.

frontage of 28 feet nnd 80 feet deep, with

so that the boards had sprung in and let
the water in, causing the leak. Several
places on the planks and plugs on the
boltheads had been eaten into and some
of the yellow metal on the bottom nud
keel had been broken. The caulking in
several places of her bottom was slack.
The board recommended that nil of
these defective parts be replaced and re
paired and that the bottom of the vessel
be rccaulkcd and be painted with copper
