Shot n Mule.
Hrughelli took his mules and hied
himself to the tall woods when he heard
of the proposed visit of Governor
Carter to Hilo. Citizen Drughclli's
former experience with the Governor
was enough to inspire lack of confidence
and he sought safety for his live stock
from the reckless markmaitship of the
As it happened the Volcano Stables
became the sufferer, and within twenty
four hours after the arrival of the U.
S. S. Chicago, oue of their draft mules
was the victim of the wanton sport of
some of the Jackics of the warship.
While being led behind a wagon along
the water front, two shots were fired at
thf animal from a crowd of intoxicated
sailors ofT the Chicago who had been
granted shore leave. One bullet struck
the skull near the eye and glanced off,
while the other penetrated the fleshy
part of the thigh. The animal fell and as
a result of the fall suffered a fractured
hip bone. The mule is now in the horse
hospital connected with the Volcano
Stables and under the careful treatment
of Dr. H. II. Elliott will recover.
The culprits who perpetrated the deed
were arrested by the police, hut later
turned over to the ship's officers. They
were placed in solitary confinement on
bread and water in accordance with the

Admiral Goodrich, who is in charge of
the Pacific Squadron. Governor Carter
and Captain W. II. Lyons, naval com
mandant nt Honolulu, were guests of the
Admiral. Admiral Goodrich, Mrs. Good
rich and daughter, Mrs. Lyons, Governor
Carter and other officers from the Chicago
made up an excursian party to the Vol
cano, Owing to the necessity of readjust
ing the ship's coaipnss, which took the
vessel outside, little opportunity was
given the general public to visit the man
of war. On Thursday afternoon the ship's
marine baud gave a delightful concert n
Moohcatt Park, which was largely attended.

Met nt the fish landing on Waiakca
river by n Committee consisting of John
Molr, the Governor was escorted with as
little demonstration as it is possible to
conceive to the lattcr's residence nt Olio
men plantation, In which the executive
holds 11 large interest.
He came nud went unheralded, nud
few citizens were nwarc of the executive
presence in our midst. However, he
summoned the lenders of the Masonic
Hall Association nud tnndc known to
them his decision after careful considera
tion, to accept the ofTer of exchange of
the Masonic lot for n portion of Lot C.
The Masons ask for lot having a frontage
of seventy five fret on Waianucuuc street
and one hundred feet on Hridge street, at
a valuation fixed by the Governor of
ninety cents per square foot. This means
that the lot is valued at 6,750.
In exchange for this lot, the Masonic
Hall Association propose to give title to
two lots on upper Waianucuuc street.
These are the Hitchcock and Masonic
lots valued respectively at ft, 300 and
$5,000. The balance will have to be paid
in cash. The Association agree to put
up a substantial Mason Hall on the new
ly acquired land at a cost of not less than
$15,000 within eighteen months from
July first next.
The arrangements were eminently
satisfactory to the Governor, nud alter
securing the agreement from the Masons
in writing, he gave instructions to F.u
gineer Gere to advertise for the removal
of the Riverside School to the new school
lots. It is hoped the school building can
be removed during the holidays and not
disturb the daily attendance of pupils.
As soon as the specifications are drawn
up for the high school, contracts will be
let for the construction of that building
on the Riverside lot.

Board of Trade and the Hilo Chamber of
Commerce, A. B. Locbeustcin was select
ed last Saturday as the representative
from the Big Island to join the delegation
who arc to go on to Washington in the
interest of securing favorable action by

that while in Washington, they will press
