Somk of the democrats of the
County arc, apparently, trying the
experiment of conducting a repub
lican newspaper. It will be inter
esting to note what kind of a brand
of republicanism democrats will
NEW IllUlt SCHOOL,
If Dame Rumor is an honest
woman of her word, and no one has
reason to doubt her in this, the
Hawaii Herald has been purchased
by some of the leading democrats
of the County. The line, "A Re
publican Newspaper," etc., at the
head of the Herald's editorial
column still remains. Do we under
stand that the prominent democrats
of Hawaii have become converted
and have come over to republicanism?
An incident so unusual as that
of a number of consistent and per
sistent democrats buying and per
mitting to be published as such a
republican newspaper, naturally
causes much speculation ou the
part of the public as to why and
wherefore. So far as can be heard,
no one believes in a change of
heart within the breasts of the
democratic purchasers; and there
are those inconsiderate enough to
insinuate that the paper is to be
published as republican temporarily
"for revenue only" while county
and territorial patronage lasts for it.
Ancient Hawaiian music lias n histori
cal interest that makss it worthy of pre
servation. During an afternoon's recess
of the Board of Supervisors, while a com
mittee was preparing a report, Mr.
Kalalwaa, member from Kona, began one
of the old time chants, and though he was
good-naturedly accused of singing while
the others worked, was prevailed upon to
give some of the old music. He respond
ed with a chant that told' o story of
Hawaiian mythology which was inter
preted by Mr. Desha. This ancient
music is said to be well-nigh forgotten
by the Hawaiians. Mr Kalawaa should
have phonograph records made of the old
songs to preserve them from oblivion.
The new lights ordered placed by the
Board of Supervisors are as follows: One
arc at old Kinau dock; one arc at corner
of Pitman and Ponahawai streets; one
arc at corner of Front street and Mud
Lane. Also 32 candle power incandes
cents, as follows: At bend of the road
above Dr. Stow's residence; on Pleasant
street near residence of J. II. Maby; two
on School street; three in Puueo; one on
Volcano street near Brughelli's; four on
Front street; one near Geo. II. Williams'
residence; one on Pitman street near
Brown's residence; one at Waiakea; two
on Church streetnear LeBlond's; one on
Waianuenue street near the hospital.

The Board of Trade council met at the
rooms of the board ou Friday afternoon.
Chairman Scott presided and A. Lindsay
acted as secretary in the absence of Mr.
Vicars. The names of Captain Pierce,
Geo. Lycurgus and J. W. Marsh were
proposed for membership and it was
voted that they be recommended to the
board. On account of the absence of
Mr. Vicars in Honofulu, his report on
banana shipping, that was expected, was
I'lnns SiiBKfstcd by Principal Itlcli
Principal Richmond received by the
last Kinau, for approval and immedi
ate return, the plans for the new
high school building. Mr. Richmond
was called upon first for suggestive plans
by Architect Kerr, of Honolulu, who had
the matter in hand, and such plans were
forwarded to him.
Architect Kerr embodied these plans
in his design for the building and for
warded them to Principal Richmond for
his approval. A few modifications were
suggested and the plans returned to the
architect. The present plans received
and returned, were approved, except in
one or two minor points, by Principal
Richmond, and will undoubtedly be
practically the plans ou which bids will
be called for.
The materials which the specifications
will call for will be alternative stone,
brick or cement-block; the choice of ma
terials to be decided by the Board of
Public Works. The stone used would of
course be of a local kind; the cement
blocks are to have a rough surface in
imitation of undressed stone.
The architecture is to be plain and in
usualihigh school style; shingled hip-roof,
large four-pane windows. The wood
work finish is to be of Northwest lumber,
which is, supposedly, the fir.
The floor plan Mr. Richmond has con
cerned himself about principally. The
b'uilding is to have two stories and base
ment. It will stand on the former site of
the Riverside school building, nnd earth
removed in excavating will be used in
grading up. It will fronton Waianuenue
street with deep portico over the main
The main hall-way is 11 feet in width
and extends through the center, and in it
are the stairways leading to the upper
floor aud to the basement. The princi
pal's office, also, is at the rear of the hall
on the left. From the hall arc entrances
to four recitation rooms of equal size, ou
either side, 37x29 feet in dimensions.
The main stairway fronts ou the main
entrance and leads to a landing, from
which a stairway on each side leads to
the upper hall-way.
The main assembly hall is on this floor
in the middle of the building, in front,
aud extending over the portico. Its di
mensions are 30x36 feet. Two recitation
rooms 21x22 feet open, one ou each side,
into the assembly room by sliding doors.
At the right end of the upper hall is the
library, and at the corner next to the
library, with an enfjitice in front of the
right upper stair landing, is a large reci
tation room. The mauka quarter of the
building ou this floor contains a science
recitation room 18x19 feet, which opens
into a physical laboratory 30x16 feet,
which, in turn, opens into a chemical
laboratory, 22x16 feet. One of the ad
juncts of the laboratories is a dark-room,
The basement is to have cement floor,
to be fitted with closets, etc., and specifi
cations call for the construction of a cess
pool, a sewervhaving not yet been put in
to that distance on the street.
It is understood that as rapid, progress
as possible is being made on the plans,
and that they will soon be ready so that
bids for construction may be called for.
fA commencement of the work of con
struction may therefore be expected iu
the near future.

were highly enthusiastic over the trip as
reported by W. A. Wann, one of the
party. "Our trip," he said, "was a very
satisfactory experience; one well worth
the time aud expense. The hospitality
and good cheer of the Volcano House,
the wouders of natures we beheld, the
scenery we enjoyed, the sensations of
awe we experienced as we approached
the Make of fire' aud gazed upon its leap
ing flames, cannot be found in any other
place in the world. A visit to the Ha
waiian Islands, is in no wise complete
unless one take the volcano trip."
