Honolulu lins not passed

weather in yenrs ns wo li.id a
week ago; the present relief
may be only temporary and
the hot spell may return at
During warm weather some
people's ideas go to cold drink?,
other to ice ensiim. To buy it
mentis nionoy, to make it
in inns economy. Freezers vary
as everything else the Gom
and the White Mountain
are so much alike you cannot
tell the difference except in the
price if you buy in other shops.
With us the White Mountain,
which has tho longest pedigree,
is the cheapest; it's tho way
we buy. Other stores charge
more for it thau we do becau&e
they don't buy right. We sell
them varying in size from one
to si quarts.
Garden Hose is as plentiful
with us as tho stars in the

pon Ywaon Knislm (Imporial Jnp
miebo Steamship Company) to
make Stui Frnncisco it.-? American
turuiimiH lios nn iiitoieuting 1m! u'
history, involving what appears to
bo a violntiou of a contract b' tho
Japanese company,snyH Tho Call.
This conn-net was with tliu Paciiic
Mail Steamship Company.
Tho chief reason assigned for
tho Yuson Kaisha's giving San
Francisco tho cold shoulder was
that tho Southern l'acifie Com
pany had refused to outer into
any nrrnngouipnts whereby tho
proposed HtonPihip lino would
receive equal consideration in tho
matter of through business with
the Paciiic Mail. This stateioont
was made by Mr. Tvovo, the .rap
aueso Con u ul at thin port, and tho
alleged opposition ot tho railroad
people to tho coming of the pro
posed steamship lino was attribut
cd to the desire to protect tho
Paciiic Mail Steamship Company.
In view of the coulial reception
and hearty oncouragemetit recent
ly given by tlio rmuthcru Pacific
reprebontativo to Piesidont A&ano
of tho Toyo Kison Kaislm
(Orionlul Steanishij) Company),
and tho contrast thus shown to
tho treatment accorded the Nip
pon Yuson Kaislm people, it is
coujectured that tho action of tho
railroad peoplo toward the Inipo
rial Japanese Steamship Compa
ny -was largely iuspirod by tho
fact that tho Imperial Company
had broken faith with tho Pacific
Mail Stoamship Company.
"Early in tho decade beginning
with 18S0," said General Mauagor
Schweriu of tho Pacific Mail
Steamship Company, yostorday,
"tho Pacific Mail Steamship Com
pany owned tho coastwise linos of
steamers in iTupnn. Thcsn wero
sold to tho Mitsu Bishi Steam
ship Company, which afterward
becamo merged iu tho Nippon
"Part of this transaction waB
tho transfer of tho good will of
the steamship business in Japa
nese writers on tho part of tho
Pacific Mail Steamship Compa
ny's lines, and tho transfer of tho
good will of tho Japaneso lino so
far as tho trans-Pacific business
is concorned. The Nippon Yuson
Kuisha was not to put on a lino
to any Paciiic port in the United
States without giving two years'
notice in writing to us. Tho
Pacific Mail received notico only
two weeks ago of tho proposed
lino to Seattle to bo operated by
tho Nippon Yuson Kaisha."
Mr. oehworin declitied to state
what proceedings would bo taken
ngninst tho Japaneso steamship
company, hut loft it to bo inferred
that tho matter would probably bo
takon up inits legal aspect. An
interesting international suit may
thoroforo be onoof the outgrowths
of tho present situation.
As tho Nippon Yuson Knisbais
practically a Government concoru
any litigation that results will
present unique legal phases. A
largo part of tho shares of tho
company aro supposed to belong
to tho Emperor and members of
tho imperial family. A Princo
was at ono timo president of the
company. It has a monopoly of
tho coastiug trade. It is exempt
from all harbor dues und has
othor valuable privileges in addi
tion to its subsidy.
It is expected that tho first vessel
of tho Nippon Yuson Kaislm to
run in couuoctiou with tho Groat
Northorn Railroad will sail from
Seattlo August 20, and regularly
thereafter at intervals of threo or
four weeks. Mr. "Whitney, tho
general passongor agent of tho
Ureat Northern, is now arranging
tho schedules mid oettini' his
printed matter loady for advor-1
tiling tho onterpriso, and tho
tnifliu department is making up
tlie freight rates. Mr. Iwatiaga,
tho goiieral managor of tho Nip
pon Yuson Kaisha line, and Mr. I
McMillnti, tho Scotch general I
snpenn(ii)dent, nie now muinga I
trip through tho East, but will be I
back at Seattle in time to mt-et tho
lirst steamer whou hIio arrives at !
that poit. I

ers and yield that con-Ubsion for '
it iH uiulorstood that tiio new
steamship company will lie able
to control rates, as it reivivon un
8 per cent guaranty from tho
government of Japan. There is
said to bo no intention, however.
to disturb tho present fachedules
wliiuli mo maintained by tho
Pacific Mail, tho Canadian Pacific,
thtt'Occidentnl and Oiiental and
all except tho tramp steamers, i
Tho great Northorn Company '
will simply seek its sharo of tho i
traflic at existing rates.
Tho chief reason for establish- !
ing tho new service, in addition to
national pride, is to import iron
and cotton into Japan direct from
tho United States instoad'of via j
England. Of the 510,000,000 1
worth of raw cotton imported b '
tho mills of Japan nearly DO per
eont. comes from tho United
States, but not a pouud of it ap-
pears in the statistics of commerce i
between tho two countries. It is
shipped from Savannah, Charles- '
ton, Brunswick, Mobile and Now
Orleans to Liverpool, consigned I
to British middlemen, who trim-
fahip it to Kobe nnd Ohiika and
charge a big margin. For some !
inexplicable reason thoro has j
uover been a direct trado. But I
now, with tho now steamers, the !
Japan mills will bo supplied di- j
rect, and they havo already con- ,
traded with tho Nippon Yusen t
Kaisha to supply them with so
many bales a year for a torm of j
years at a price so much above
tho regular market quotations as
to cover transportation, insurance, ,
handling and other charges. I
Thorofore, tho principal cargo I
westward will bo cotton. For that I
reason tho Nippon Yuson Kaisha j
wero for a timo negotiating with
tho Santa Fo road for a connection '
at San Diego, Cal. It is a long I
and expensive haul for cotton from i
tho gulf States to Pugot Sound, I
but Mr. Hill has mado satisfactory
traflic arrangoniouts with tho UH-1
nois Central Bailway and a lino
ot Mississippi ltivor boats to do
liver a certain quantity annually
at his warehouses at St. Paul. As
most of tho present business of
tho Great Northorn is oastbound,
ho can haul it westward ovor his
own lino as cheaply as empty
cars. Tho oast-bound froight will
bo principally tea, raw silk and

Among tho alterations being

dramatic entertainments in tho

from tho stage, besides having

ioinotiine after tho last cur had
put up at tho Palatini terminus
last night and before 5 o'clock
tniH morning, tho oflico of tho Pa
lama terminus of tho Hawaiian
Tramways Company's lino was
broken into and tho strong box
in which the money and valuables
of tho company aro kopt was ab
stracted and carried away bodily.
The robbery was discovered whon
the office was oponed at 5 o'clock
this morning preparatory to Bond
ing the first car out, when it mub
found that the stiong box was
missing. This box is of wood
heavily bound with iron and pad
lot kod. In it woio tho leceipts
turned in by tho drivors last
night, the way bills of yes
terday's trips, about four hun
dred dollars iu small clmugc !
done up in packages ami other
papers and books of vuluo to tho
company. Tho packages of ,
change wero of tho enomination
of 10, 2.J aud ."50 cents und SL and '
wero tied up in canvas sacks, each
bearing n separnle number. Tho
money turned in by Iho drivors
last night was mostly in silver
dollais nnd tho amount cannot
j et be ascertained.
Superintendent Pain was at
onco notified of tho robbery and
be iu turn notified tho police, and
tho affair was placed iu tho hands
of Detectivo Knnpa. Tho latter
eont out some of his men to look
for tho box, while Mr. Pain took a
numbor of mon on his own ac
count and proceeded to mnko n
systematic search. His offorts
wero rewarded about 10 o'clock by
finding tho box in the vicinity of
the lane leading to tho rear of tho
Kiimehamoha schools aud about
200 hundred yards from tho com
pany's stables and ollico. Tho
exact locality was somo distanco
off the lano nud among somo rocks
and brush abounding there. Tho
box had been broken open and
all tho nionoy abstracted. Tho
papers and othor things in tho
box wore scattered around.
"Whon tho robbery was first dis
covered it was known that at least
two men must havo boon con
cerned in it, as tho stolon box
weighed about 200 pounds. This
was orificd by tho tracks found
in tho vicinity of tho
placo whore the box was found.
Thoro was also tho plain track of
a brake, showing from tho point
whore it loft tho lano to whoro it
had been driven aluong tho rocks
and the box broken opon. Tho
track of tho wheels was carefully
measured by Mr. Pain and found
to be exactly five foot across.
After gathering up his papers
aud tho remains of tho box Mr.
Pain returned to tho oflico aud
commenced to mako further in
quiries. Ho found a Portugiteso
who had seen a brake in tho vici
nity of tho lano vory early this
morning. Thoro wero two mon in
tho brake, but tho uuiu took so
litllo notico of them that ho could
give no description of their ap
pearance, but ho could toll that
they wero driving a black horse,
which was good ovidonco.
Mr. Pain brought tho man to
tho station house whore ho told
what ho know to tho ollioials.
Captain Parker at onco recognized
tho brako and blnck horse us
similar to one ho had seen a cer
tain party driving past the polico
Btatiou yesterday. As the man is
a well known thief tho captain
had a notion to ask where ho got
tho rig from, but did not do so as
lie had no roasou to suspect any
thing wrong. Tho man was Into
ly releasod from the Oahu prison
upon tho expiration of Iiib sen
tence, but has Binco kopt vory
quiet. Captain Parker had very
little doubt that this man was
mixed up in tho robbery and at
V frtati tv
onco proceeded to traco tho horse,
Manager Pain is of the
opinion that hoiuooiid who
is well acquainted with the
business of the Pahima ollico fo
concorned in tho robbery and
thinks that tins person concenled
himself in tho ollico whon tho last
car camo in last night. Tim door
through which thooox was carried
out is a double one, and when
closed for tho night is protected
by a heavy woodon bar placed
across on tho inwute. This wut.
taken out and whoever did it
must havo gained ncc033 to tho in
sido in somo other wny than
through that door.
One of tho mounted police
mon reported having seen two
uativo boys hanging about the
vicinity of tho oflico about
two o'clock this morninp
but as this was not un
usual ho did not pay much atten
tion to them.
Both Captain Parkor and detec
tivo Knapa aro working on tho
case with a number of assistants,
but up to !1 o'clock there had beeis
no further developments.
