TRYING TO KILL NEWS.
Commissioner aud Minister
Blount's report on the Hawaiian
situation has not yet boon made
uublio iu Washington. Still all the
press reports as to its probable con
tents indicate that it recommonds a
BUbmission of tho quustion of a form
of government to the Hawaiian peo
ple. Against these reports thoro
are only the opinions of pro-annexation
members of Congress opin
ions that are liable to radical change
from the effect of facts given in the
report. Tho opinion of Mr. Loo
Chambers, Land Commissioner of
Samoa, whoso wife is a niece of Mr.
Blount, is simply an echo of unolli
cial opinion at "Washington. It is
admitted by the Star, in that paper's
display of Mr. Chambers' chat at
President Dole's garden party, that
Mr. Chambers disclaims being in
any degree in the confidence of
either Mr. Ulouiit or Secretary Her
bert, his own late law partner. As
to the despatch from Washington,
republished iu this paper on the
arrival of last steamer, it is simply
ridiculous to attribute its author
ship to Signor Moreno. Its tone is
that of an angry annexationist, who
gives unpalatable news with a re
luctant snarl. The telegram is fur
ther said to be ono of the United
Press, but if that is tho cao it is
btrauge it appears iu San Francisco
papers that belong to the Asso
ciated Press. Local newspaper
readers will remember the denials
so emphatically made of tho first
news that a commission of inquiry
was to be sent here on tho strength
of the Queen's protest delivered at
Washington by Mr. Neumann. The
authors of those denials seem to be
anxious to parallel their discomfi
ture on that occasion.
BOW IN THE EIKE BOARD. .
Alloyed Brokon Faith in the Oholco
Thoro was a meeting of the Board
of Fire Commissioners tho other
evening, at which little seems to
have boou done. The ono paper
that had a roprosoutnlho there, iu
uu ollioial capacity other than as a
reporter, suppresses tho most inter
esting part ol tho "littlo." Commis
sioners Brown and Gunn wore pre
sent, but Commissioner Keech was
absent. And theioby hangs a tale.
As the story goes, Chairman
lirown had delegated tho selection
of a secretary fort lie Board to Mr.
Keech, who took tho commission
with some reluctance. However, ho
found a suitable man iu the person
of Mr. Cutter, who was putting iu
time for small pay iu a situation
below his abilities. The candidate
was long a resident of Honolulu and
n good member of tho Annexation
Club as well. Mr. Keech reported
to his colleagues on the Board tho
result of his quest for a secretary,
aud they approved of the selection
he had made.
Before tho monthly mooting canio
round, Mr. Keech was disgusted to
learn that his colleagues had gone
back on tno uonnuatiou, Mr. Man
son, reporter for the Star, being
given the ollice instead of the man
unanimously agreed on previously.
Mr. Keech did not show up at the
mooting of tho Board, and Mr. Man
son was installed as secretary.
There is much feeling iu the Aunex
ation Club over this action of the
Board, as it is considered that the
principle of "to him that hath shall
bo givou" has boon carried to an ex
treme. The now secretary has a fair
living olT the Annexation Club's or
gan, whilo tho candidate he has
supplanted is iu need of living em
ployment, besides having been tho
original choice of tho Board. It is
a growing belief among the mem
bership of tho Annexation Club tha
tho Star has quite enough pull for
its owu sustenance on the organiza
tion, without interfering with the
distribution of patronage in general
for tho benefit of its stall.
OLD PILE DRIVER WRECKED.

Annual Meeting of Planters' Labor
and Supply Company Adjourned.
This morning the annual meeting
of the Planters' Labor aud Supply
Compauy opened iu tho hall of the
Chamber of Commerce. Mr. W. G.
Irwin, president, was detained by a
meeting of tho Hawaiian Sugar
Company. At 10:10 Mr. J. O. Carter
took the chair and called the meet
ing to order.
Mr. W. O. Smith, secretary, called
the roll, showing the following
eight members present representing
twenty-eight plantations: Messrs.
Carter, Smith, F. A. Schaofer, F. M.
Swauzy, J. F. Hackfeld, C. Bolte,
W. G. Irwin and H. M. Whitney,
editor of the Planters' Monthlj.
Mr. Irwin having arrived took tho
chair and immediately suggested an
adjournment until Monday, Decem
ber 4. Mr. Z. S. Spalding would
then be home aud with other mem
bers unavoidably detained could bo
present. This session had some im
portant matters to settle, particu
larly that of labor, and it was ad
visable that it should have a good
Mr. Carter accordingly moved an
adjournment until the date suggest
Mr. Smith, supporting tho pro
posal, remarked that the grinding
season had come on earlier than
usual this season, which prevented
the attendance of planters at this
Mr. Schaefer seconded the motion,
aud suggested that, besides news
paper notices, circulars notifying
members of the adjourned meeting
should be issued two weeks in ad
vance. The secretary assented, stating
that circulars had been sent for the
regular meeting at this date.
Mr. Irwin made further remarks
on the importance of having a largo
Mr. Smith added, as a matter of
importance, mention of the obliga
tion the planters had incurred for
the employment of Prof. Koobelo,
the expert on plant diseases, blight
and insect pests.
The motion carried without dis
sent and the meeting stood adjourn
fed until December 4th.
Mr. Jarrott, the government sup
erintendent of tho wharves, received
orders from Mr. W. E. Powell, Sup
erintendent of Public Works, on Sat
urday afternoon to have tho pile
driver put in readiuess on Sunday
morning, as it was to bo used for the
purpose of driving down several
piles near tho Miowera. The pile
driver was accordingly made ready
aud fastened to t he Kwa side of the
P. M. S. S. wharf that evening, but
judge of Mr. Jarrott's surprise when
he wont dowu Sunday morning to
find it partly sunk and lying on its
beam ends, with the derrick leaning
against the wharf, aud the iron
hammer loosed from its place aud
fallen into tho water.
it appeals that on Saturday night
a heavy sea prevailed along tho wa
ter front, aud tho pile driver, which
was old and worn out, succumbed
to the ill-usage she was submitted
to by tho waves. However, Mr. Jar
rott had tho machine towed over to
tho Waikiki end of the wharf aud
righted, the donkey engine aud dor
rick removed, and a now scow is now
being fitted up to take tho place of
the one smashed. The hammer was
still lying at tho bottom of the bay
up to this afternoon, and a ropo at
tached to it with ono end fastened
to a ring on the wharf marks its
locatiou in tho water.
Mr. Jarrott is at work rigging up
another scow, the machinery from
tho old will lie placed on the now
one, aud ho thinks that in the
course ol two or three days the new
pile-driver will bo ready for service.
FEROCITY OF A BEAR.
Rocoivos Thirty-flvo Bullota Boforo
Being Done For.
Whilo hunting for door on tho
Clackamas recently 14. H. Bennett
of this city came iu coutact with a
brown bear which fairly rivaled the
grizzly for desperate fighting and
outdid tho cat of nine lives for its
tenacity to life, says thoPoitland
Mr. Ueunett started on a minting
and fishing trip with Bert Day and
F. do Hardy about, two weeks ago.
Thoy pitched camp on Poaring
river, one of (ho branches of the
Clackamas, which is about fifty miles
from this city. Cue uight Mr. Day
started out to reconnoitor and vo
turuod iu about an hour with the
information that he had seen a gig
nutic black boar bitting on its hauu
chos aud eating berries about a mile
from the camp. Hu hud ouly a rillo
and so did not court a close ac
quaiutauco with tho animal. Tho
next morning all three started on a
search for deer. Mr. Bennett, who
was in tho lead, pushed his way
through the thick underbrush and
reached the top of a precipitous
cliff, from which, in scanning the
country .for door, ho discovered
bruin drinking at the river, about 500
y arus distant ana 1UU foot or so uolow
the cliff. Thinking he could easily
wing his prey, Bonuott took aim aud
sent a bullet speeding aftor the
boar, which immediately turned
and ran toward him. Bennett's first
impression was that the bear had
mistaken tho direction from which
tho report came and was trying to es
cape. Ho waited till the animal ap
proached to withiu 100 yards aud
thou fired soven or eight shots at
him. One broke his foreleg aud
several entered his body, but ho
never faltered. Bonuott kepi up his
fusillade and emptied his rillo before
tho bear had got withiu sixty yards
of him. Thou ho called for holp
and began to reload. Day and Do
Hardy came up aud paid their at
tention to tho boar, which had begun
tho ascent of the clilt by a circuit
ous route. He got within thirty
yards of them when Bennett and
Day rested their rifles, took deliber
ate aim and fired. Both bullets hit
their mark aud bruin rolled to tho
foot of the hill, but arose imme
diately and started up again. Several
more shots wore fired, threeof bruin's
logs were broken and blood (lowed
iu streams from his wounds, but he
began to crawl up the hill and snap
ped and growled furiously. lie
finally became exhausted and Day
approached to within live yards of
him aud gave him his quietus.
Tho boar was skinned and thirty
five bullet holes wore found in his
hide. Throe of his legs, both shoul
ders aud hips and several ribs were
broken. He measured six feet in
length, four foot in height aud
weighed 400 pounds. S. F. Chronicle.

Tho Supreme Court has rendered
a unanimous decision, prepared by
Judge Froar, sustaining the demur

It is too techuical a decision for lay

its object clearly enough to be a
ground of action. Hatch for prose

The condition of national
affairs in the United States is
a greater cause for .alarm
among the people there than
is the unsettled condition of
affairs here. What with silver
and anti-silver, repealers and
supporters and the pro's and
con's on the Geary law the
people of the United States
find their pulses beating in the
halls of Congress at a rate
similar to that experienced in
the ante bellum days. The
Hawaiian question is insigni
ficant compared with the im
portance of settling forever
the differences among the
silver anu anti-suver men.
Selfishness it may be called,
but in this day and generation
people are prone to look out
for their own interests first,
their neighbors' afterward
take a body of men like the
Congress of United States
with no definite plan of settle
ment, action is necessarily
slow. If, as is stated in a dis
patch to one of the papers,
congress was to adjourn on
the 26th of October the possi
bilities of reaching the Ha
waiian issue before the Decem
ber session is reduced to a
shadow. Mr. Willis may throw
some light on the subject when
he arrives provided he is not
too blunt. As it stands we
must await patiently the ar
rival of the Australia to see
what the law makers of the
United States have done. In
the meantime take your pencil
and paper and calculate the
cost of building 500 yards of
fence where you use posts
every six or eight leet, and
take from the total the cost of
building the same length by
the use of our patent stays and
washers. .The result will prove
to you the economy in adopt
ing new methods of fence
You have another source of
profit to occupy your attention
during the interval until the
arrival of the steamer. An idle
brain is the devil's workshop;
you must have something to
keep your thought factory
going on legitimate lines, get
a color card of Hendry's Ready
Mixed Paints and select the
color you want to use on your
house. Ten gallons of paint
and two or three brushes will
make your home look surprised
We have some beautiful
banquet lamps and if you want
to give your parlor or library a
modern look there is no easier
or better way of accomplishing
it than by selecting an article
of this kind.
You remember the pretty
tumbler you were looking at
in our store? the one with the
engraved bands near the top.
You will remember, also, that
when you came back for them
we had sold all we had iu stock.
Last week we received several
hundred dozen of this pattern
together with some very hand
some hock and champagne
glasses. If you want any, now
is a good time to get them.
Our Hendry Double Furrow
plow is' making a big hit on
plantations because it is the
only plow of the kind that
leaves the furrow clean and
ready for irrigating or plant
ing. Wherever the Hendry
Breaker is you will soon find a
Hendry Double Furrow plow.
