Hiigur mill in, or somewhere near to,
Honolulu, to bo supported largely
by Binnll cultivators, who would
raise cano nnd 6cll it to the mill pro
prietors, or miliary cane to be
ground on shales. Mr. Cornwcll and
'Mr. llurbcit originated the Bchcnio,

of Kalihi1 Valley. But the mill was
never ordered, the buildings were
never constructed, and for some rca

prise never emerged from the legion
A year or more later another

would pledge themselves to nothing
at tho meeting. One after another
Jtlicy wriggled out of their word,
until one only was left who was prc-

So this second venture collapsed,

THE FANCY FAIR.
Monday afternoon and evening
'wore spent by many of our citizens
in the Music Hull at the fair, held in
!aid of St. Louis College. Precisely
,ht 2 o'clock the doors were opened,
and in a very few minutes n large
number of purchasers had entered
the building, when the first thing
thai met the eye was the arrange-
ment of thei stalls on the platform,
usually laid down for dandng, and
'tho refresluneut tables on tho Htage.
'rfOn the left-hand side of the entrance
Verc stationed the grab-boxes, whoso

owing to their proximity to the roof,
the sound was lather too loud mo&t
of the time.
During both afternoon and even
ing tho building was crowded. , In
deed, round Ihe stalls and the re
freshment tables there was u com
plete lloek nt'fcll times. Tho stalls

,to do a thriving business, judging
from tho way iiUwluchjtho gifts dit
appcarcd. Tho right hand stalls were- re
served for Hawaiian products,
amongst which tho cocoanut carv
ings wcro specially noticeable and
tho hats and hat ornaments of the
scraped skin of tho pumpkin vine.
Next to these came the flower stall,
n veritable temple of flowers,' which '
occupied the lower stage-box. Its
emissaries,' n bevy of bluBldng
maidens, wandered round in all
directions entreating to bo allowed
to pin a bouquet in your button
holo or lo sell you tho latest in floral,
decorations. Then the refreshment
tables which were fully patronised
during the evening.
The stalls on tho left hand Bide
were covered with an immense
Variety of those articles of tiso and
beauty bo familiar to tho habitue of
bazaais. Amongst them we noticed
a portrait of His Holiness tho pre
sent Pope, which was presented by
him lo His Majesty during his Visit
to Pome. A colored portrait of
Her Majesty painted by Miss
Miranda also attracted great atten
tion. His Majesty yisitcd the fair in the
evening, attended by'His'Ex. "V. M.
Gibson. The Queen was there In
the afternoon. Their Poyal High
nesses Liliuokalaui and Likclikc ami
Mr. Cleghorn were also present.
