Big Deal In Real Estate.
Honolulu, June i. One of the biggest deals in real estate and water
rights ever consummated in HawaH has just been completed. It involves
the sale of Pacific Heights and the water sources and rights belonging
to that property. Also practically the whole of Pauoa Valley and all
the springs and water sources in tbtf valley. It also involves the utili
zation of the water from these sources for water power and the establish
ment of a great paper and fibre factory. Finally the plan contemplates
an addition to the water supply ofilfoiiolulu without cost to the com
munity. The promoter of the plaef thus outlined is T. B. Reynolds,
the representative in Hawaii efthifiew ork Paper Export Associa
tion. He has secured options on ift'thc laud ahd water rights involved.
He proposes for himself and his Medriates to establish a paper fibre
factory on the property purchased'power for this and for other pur
poses will be sured from the water sources which are included in the
purchase, all Oi i'-rh arc at an elevttion of several hundred feet above
sea level. " )gn
It is understood that the price Ube paid for Pacific Heights, Pauoa
Valley, and the springs and othe'rJjHHirces of water, is in the neighbor
hood of a quarter of a million dollars. Besides this there are some other
properties owned or represented tuftS. M. Damon which are purchased
in addition. ?

position as Governor of Hawaii, and A. L. C. Atkinson became again
the Secretary. Carter took the executive chamber and Atkinson re
sumed his old quarters in the outer office. The Governor had many
callers during the morning, and spent considerable time in conference
with Atkinson, going over the various matters to be turned over to him.
The executive found plenty to attract his attention. The former Act
ing Governor spent over an hour describing the various pending propo
sitions. Immediately after this consultation was concluded, the heads
of departments began to come in. Land Commissioner Pratt, School
Superintendent Babbitt, High' Sheriff Henry. Surveyor Wall, the At
torney General, Superintendent of Public Works Holloway and Auditor
These officials came and went, all daylong, aud in the intervals of
their coming a great many persons and personages called. The German
Consul, Herr Pfotenhaur, came to pay his respects; and Rear Admiral
L-yon, accompanied by Captain Carter, of the Naval Station, who took
Captain Niblack's place, came in full regimentals to make an official call.
Not Inimical to Hawaii.
Honolulu, June i. A cable was received this morning by Secretary
Atkinson from Commissioner General of Labor Sargent, at Wash
ington, to tbe effect that the proposed immigration legislation by the
United States is not going to interfere with Hawaii's plans for
getting settlers from Europe. Congress is passing a law designed to
stop the influx of undesirable population from Europe by requiring all
immigrants entering the country to stand an educational test, and the
prospect of immediate passage of this law aroused fears here that it would
interfere with the mission of Collector Stackable, who has gone to get
settlers for Hawaii from Europe. The cable, "pending legislation will not
be inimical to Hawaiian interest," is taken to mean, either that the
general law is such that its provisions would not shut out the class of
immigrants Hawaii is seeking, or that Hawaii will be excepted from its

San Francisco, May 23, The Burnham plans will find a powerful op

of a beautiful San Francisco are fairly begun. Ever since the Burnham
committee has made public its conclusions the downtown business men
have complained. Yesterday, in regular session, Chairman M. H. de
Young of- the Association arose when the topic came up for discussion
and denounced the widening of Geary street as impracticable and value
less and gave notice that, other improvements planned would not meet
with his approval.
A committee of three was appointed from the Property-owners' Asso
ciation to assist the Realty Board in its endeavors to induce the big
merchants, manufacturers and office-holders to move back to the central
part of the city. A personal canvass will be made.

the orders which he expected to pour in, the California and Hawaii
Sugar Company, without using any brass bands or other noisy mediums
conveyed the intelligence to the trade that they would be supplied at
the market rale of $4.55, but with a rebate of 25 cents per sack. The
California concern got the orders, and Mr. Hannam heard of it a couple
of days afterward. This was too much for the man who turns the
screws for the" trust, and he has not been seen since.

Attempt to Assassinate King Alfonso-
Loudon, May 30. It is reported that a plot to assassinate King Al
fonso of Spain, has been discovered by the secret police.
Madrid, May 31. The marriage of King Alfonso and Princess Ena
was celebrated here today with great ceremony.
While the royal wedding party was returning to the palace from the
wedding, a bomb was thrown at Grand Duke Vladimir of Russia who
was a member of the party. He escaped injury but several soldiers and
horses of the guard were killed. The King and his" bride were caliu
throughout the scene.
Madrid, June 1 Their Majesties King Alfonso and his biide, have
been automobiling through the streets of the city today. They were
unaccompanied by any guards.
It is now believed that the bomb that was thrown at the royal wedding
party, was intended for King Alfonso, as a portion of the exploding
bomb struck the decorations of his breast.
The Marchioness of Tolosa and her daughter were killed by the ex
plosioti of the bomb. General Weyler was wounded bv the explosion.
The assassin had hired an expensive balcony overlooking the route of
the procession. He had lived in lavish fashion at his residence. An
Englishman has been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the
plot to assassinate King Alfonso.
Honolulu Bar to Investigate.
Honolulu, May 30. The Hawaiian Bar Association wants an ex
planation from Attorney Carl S. Smith of Hilo, of his attitude of the
five Koreans who were sentenced to death in Hilo recently, and for
whom Smith was counsel. The Association this morning unanimously
adopted a resolution to this effect, offered by Judge Perry.
The resolutions refer to a letter written by Mr. Smith in reply to the
following request made by Deputy Attorney General Milvertou:
air 1 .1 . . . 1 .
"i wo.uiu appreciate it very uiucn 11 you could advise tue ns to
whether you have any facts to present which in your opinion would
warrant any reduction of the sentence.aud whether you have nny reason
to urge why the death penalty should not be imposed.
"A reply by return mail will greatly oblige, as the Governor desires
to take up this matter immediately. I am, very truly yours."
Mr. Smith's letter was as follows:
"Dear Sir: In reply to your communication numbered D 115, under
date of the 10th inst., I beg to say that while I have a uatural prejudice
against the execution of criminals, still I believe that this punishment is
one of the best safeguards which we have in deterring persons from
committing crime. I have carefully considered the question which you
submit to me, which is whether I have any facts to present which would
warrant interference of the executive in reduction of the sentence.aud
must reply in the negative. As counsel for he defendants, assigned by
the court to represent them upon an indictment found, I examined into
the facts and details of the case and must confess that in all of the ex
perience which I have had, directly and indirectly, with criminal law, I
have never known of a case in which the death penalty was a more fit
ting punishment for the crime of homicide. Each of the defendants
plainly stated to me that what he did was done with the most absolute
deliberation, being affected neither by frenzy of any description, nor in
toxication. Each defendant explained to me that he was well aware of
the unlawfulness of their assault and homicide, and that the law of the
country from which they came is identical with the law of this country.
Each man seems to be possessed of a normal mind and of sufficient in
telligence to carry on the work of a laborer in his station of life. So
far as the law is concerned, the homicide was committed with the most
undeniable premeditation, and neither from the standpoint of legal ethics
or from auy normal sentiments does any reason occur to me why there
should be any executive interference in this matter
"Very truly yours, CARL S. SMITH."
