Mortgagee's Notice of
Intention to Foreclose

KOHALA AND HILO RAILS TO BE SENT
Notice is hereby given that pursuant to Agent R. T. Guard of the Matson Navigation Co. has received a
the power of sale contained In that cer-1 cablegram from C. Brewer & Co. San Iran:isco to ship aboard the En
tuln mortgage made by William Reman-1 terprise upon the latter's arrival nt Hilo, the consignment of steel rails
des and his wife, Jessie l'ernandes, as I intended for the illfatetl Kohnlit & Ililo Railroad. Since the five-year
mortgagors, of Honokna, Hamukua,
Island and Territory of Hawaii, to M. V.
Holmes, of said Honokaa, Trustee for
Miillc Lodge No. 4, K. of P., and bis
successors in office, as mortgagee, dated
the 13th day of June, A. D. igoi, and
recorded in the Registry of Conveyances
in Honolulu, Oahu, Territory of Hawaii,
in Liber 336, Pages 304 and 305, William
Russell, Trustee for Mailc Lodge No. 4,
K. of P., and successor of the said M. V.
Holmes, mortgagee, intends to foreclose
the said mortgage for conditions broken,
to wit: non-payment of both principal
and interest when due; and upon such
foreclosure, the mortgagee will sell the
contract of the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co. to carry sugar from
the Plantations to be tapped by the proposed road, it is believed that the
owners of the rails see no immediate prospct of disposing of them here
and will ship them to the coast. They will be placed in the hold of the
Enterprise before the vessel proceeds to Honolulu.
The rails were delivered at Ililo August 20, 1904, on the Tillie E.
Starbuck. There are Soo toms of rails and 1 1 tons of angle irons, spikes
and bolts. They have been protected from the weather by n wooden
shed on the banks of the Waiakea river. When approached regarding
the order to reship, Mr. Peck, who has done so much to further the pro
posed railroad and is part owner of the rails, said: "I have Leen convinc
ed for some time that there was no prospect of disposing of these rails
here, and as the price of steel has gone up twenty-five per cent, I wrote
recently to C. Urcwer & Co., now was a good time to sell. The steel
supply which has largely come from Belgium is greatly reduced, and
this has sent the price of steel skywards.

King's Daughters' Hiawatha Entertainment.
An entertainment will be given under the auspices of the Society of
King's Daughters on Friday October 6th. For the first time iu four
years the Kings Daughters are asking assistance from the public. The
money raised at this entertainment will be used for the education of
Hawaiian boys and'girls now being aided by them iu boarding schools.
The policy of this society is to pay half of the tuition fee, thus encourag
ing its protege's to help themselves as far as possible.
The entertainment will consist of readings from Hiawatha by Miss
Franc Potter, accompanied by Miss Caroline Potter, who is the pianist
for this occasion. The program will be interspersed with tableaux un
der the direction of Mrs. Milton Rice whose artistic ability lent so much
to the tableaux in the "Daughters of Fame."
The evening in the hands of so capable a trio is certain to be an artis
tic success and it is hoped by those in charge that, nt the low price of
admission, seventy-five cents, it may also be a financial one. The place
of entertainment will be announced later. Tickets may be obtained
either of the Hilo Drug Co. or Wall Nichols Co.

migrants will be taken from the ranks of the Molokaiu or

sects, the principles of which are similar iu character, although the
Molokani are regarded as the more progressive. They call themselves
the "champions of the spirit" and advocate the control ol mind over
matter. Their religion is not unlike that of the Hebrew's. They ab
stain from potk, wine or other alcoholic spirits. Most of them are able
to read and write intelligently, are industrious and arc traders among
themselves. They are not what you would call "gang laborers," but
more adapted to agricultural pursuits. In fact, as Captain Demens ex

Will Pay Cash Prices for Bananas.
H. Vicars, who has just returned from Honolulu, has made arrange
ments with the Henry Waterhouse Trust Company for the purchase on
a cash basis of all marketable bananas .delivered at the wharf at Hilo.
This is the great desideratum of the Ljnaua growers, who have met
such signal failures in their efforts to niaiet their own fruit, or in selling
on consignment. "" -
Mr. Vicars, as the representative of the Waterhouse Trust Co., is pre
pared to buy all Hilo bananas offered, sending agents into the field to
select the fruit and paying cash on delivery at the Hilo wharf. He has
secured ample space on the steamer and has fixed a sliding scale of
prices, depending upon the size of bunches offered, as follows, 8 hands,
35c; 9 hands, 40c; 10 hands, 45c; 11 hands, 50c, and 12 hands, 55c.
On notification from growers he will send an agent to the plantations,
who will satisfy himself as to condition, size and quality, and place a
special brand on each stem. On arrival at the wharf, properly wrapped,
they will be subject to further inspection, if necessary, and accepted.
Bunches poorly wrapped will be rewrapped at the expense of the
grower. When accepted the planter will receive the price of his ship
ment and thereafter the company behind Mr. Vicars will stand all losses
or further expense. This is the arrangement which the growers hive
sought to bring about for some time, but until the Henry Waterhouse
Trust Company undertook the project no satisfactory terms have ever
been reached. Mr. Vicars asks that growers desiring to dispose of their
fruit in this manner communicate with him without delay.
To Encourage Russian Small Farmers.
Capt. P. A. Demens, a Russinn -American, residing at I.os Angeles,
Cal., has been making a tour of Hawaii on a mission from President
Roosevelt. He was under the personal escort of Secretary A. I,. C.
Atkinson, and Special Agent Jarcd G. Smith of the U. S. Experimental
Station. He was also accompanied by his daughter, Miss Demens, and
Mr. and Mrs. I.. A. Thurston. They arrived on Sunday at Ilouuapu
by the Mauna I.oa and after spending tha night ami Monday at the
Volcano House, journeyed through the Olaa district, where Capt. De
mens met many of his fellow countrymen, inspecting their conditions and
the opportunities offered for the settlement by others of that nationality.
While Capt. Demens would not talk for publication, as to the object
of his mission, one of the party accompanying him said: "Capt. Demens
is a Russian gentlemen, residing at Los Angelas and a man who is
greatly interested in the settlement and Americanizing of Russians iu
the United States. In a recent interview with President Roosevelt, the
latter expressed a desire to see Hawaii settled by American settlers and
homesteaders, and with this end in view, Capt. Demens is looking into

Hilo High School Site.
At the meeting of the Executive Council of the Board of Trade
Thursday afternoon the principal topic was the discussion of a Ililo'
High School site. Superintendent C. S. Holloway was present at the
meeting. Mr. Scott advocated the removal of the Riverside .school
building to a portion of the hospital grounds adjoining, making the
Riverside lot available for high .school put poses. This did not meet
with favor, although the consensus of opinion was iu favor of using
exclusively the Riverside lot for the high school, and the removal of the
grammar building to another location.
Principal Richmond and the others connected with the high school
have addressed a letter to Superintendent of Public Instruction Davis
upon the subject, which is as follows:
Ililo, T. II., September 20, 1905.
Jos. C. Davis, Esq., Superintendent of Public Instruction, Honolulu:
Dear Sir Several sites for the high school have been suggested,
among which is that of a lot belonging to the Free Masons. This site
is in many ways ideal. What difficulties may be encountered iu the
acquisition of this property we cannot sey. There is, we belivve, an
other site, almost if not equally as suitable for the location of the high
school. This is the large lot belonging to the government, and upon
which the Riverside School stands. There is room here, we believe, for
both schools without crowding. Should there be difficulty iu the ac
quirement of other property, we wish to suggest this location as per
fectly suitable and immediately available. Respectfully,
(Signed) Frank A. Richmond Mary Frank Potter,
Josephine Deyo, Cyril O. Smith,
