So Truth iu llin llvpnrt of Tbreiitcu
Various rumors affecting some
of the higher officers of the regi
ment and their possible resigna
tions have been alloat for some
days, or rather thoy have beou re
newed, for this is about tho fourth
timo in tho past year thoy have
come to the surface
Colonel Fishor intorviowed on
the subjeot this morning aud in
reply to a direct question said:
"There is no truth in it. I am
not going to resign, at loast not at
present. I did think about it
some months ago but changed my
mind. I have no prcsont intention
of resigning, but should I do so it
will havo boon done before the
public gets any intimation of it. I
do not boliovo in nil this gossip
ing." Major McLuod said ho hod not
resigned nor had ho any present
intoution of doing so. rio did not
know of uuy other officer who
contemplated resigning nor any
reason why they should do so at
present, llo had heard tho ru
mors concerning Colonol Fishor,
Major Jones and himsolf but took
no stock in them.. He wob not
proparcd to say that in case Colo
nol Fishor resigned othor officers
would follow him. It would be
time enough to talk about that
when it happened.

An outortiiinmnnt unique at
least for Honolulu was given by
tho Art Circle of tho Kilohaim
Art Leoguo at tho rooms of tho
organization last night. It was
no loss than the. production of an
original novol in seven chapters

two exceptions, rood their own
The plot of the story was a
voyago of the phantom steamship
"Polynesia" of tho mythical
"Polngic Steamship Company,"
Willi' a f, picc.l list of passengers,
fiom tho real port of San Francis
co, sailing on tho inipiwsiblo date
of "February 29, 1897," for tho
nctual metropolis to wit, llono
lulu of the poetical laud known
as the "Paradise of the Pacific,"
alius, in historical verity, theso
Hawaiian Islauds. A program to
enable the auditors to follow the
narrators satisfactorily was gotten
up in the shape of a regular pas
sengor list, embellished with tho
pieluru of a steamship at sea, the
illusion being only int- rfered
with by tho imprint of thn Lnguo
on tuy trout page and i, Hit of the
contiibutors ou tho back.
It would be impossible, in the

Mrs. F. R. Day produced a do
toctivo story with material enough
condensed into it for enthralling
elaboration into a whole volume,
and whoso ludicrous culmination
on tho wharf at Honolulu was fit
to mako a professional novolist
consnmo away with onvy.
Mrs Mabel Wing Castlo had a
diiljoult rolo, calling for psyohical
insight. It was tho framing of a
shorthand diary for a lady mom
ber of a numerous family party
on board. Many laughahlo situa
tions and harassing rofiections
wore skilfully brought out.
Mr. J. F. Brown kopt tho audi
ence convulsed with laughter at
every sentence of the closing chap
ter. Ho sized up the idiosyncracios
of various travolors with remorse
loss humor, and rovealod in a
mastorly way tho weakness of tho
returning Kamaaina for exhibit
ing points of local interest on
shore, nftor doubling Diamond
Head, to the strangers. In this
latter connection ho lot off a
Eoora, understood to havo boon
eld in reserve for somo time,
entitled, "Marius Scotins' Dofonso
of tho Bridgo," of which tho scouo
is laid in tho campaign against
the robols of 1895 aud the horo is
tho principal of the Higji School.
This closed the narrativo of tho

Fisher presented his report on tho
international shooting match aud
a gonoral discussion on tho merits
of tho scorns mado took plnce. It
was thought that Hawaii ought to
win. "However," us Colonel Mc
Loau said this morning, "we shall

Colonel Fishor also brought up
the mattor of tho coming match
with the Sharpshooters. He had
allowed thorn in his arrangements
with Captain Wall overything
they nsked for, such as globe or
telescope sights, three pound trig
ger pulls aud any kind of sport

solectiou of a day for the match
ho hail been unable to come to an
agreement with Captain Wall, who
wanted the time sot for the end of
l'ebiuary or later. Ho himself
wanted tho match this month, the
sooner the bettor, nnd heuco io
ferrod tho question to the board
for decision. I'ho board voted
that the match bo nhot not latei
than January UOih, ami Colonol
Fisher so notified Captain Wall.
Discussing tho forthcoming
match with n reporter this morn
iug, both Colonol McLean aud
Captain Schaefer said the military
were anxious for a mutch, so anx
ious that ovorything the Sharp
shooters asked for had beeu con
ceded oxcept tho time. It was
thought it was hardly fair for the
Sharpshooters to accept u ohul
longe and then ask for timo to
practice for tho event. The mili
tary would .shoot nt 21 hours
notice and there appeared no
good lenson why tho Sharp
shooters, who woro constantly
practising, should not.
"The high scores published by
tho Sharpshooters do not scare us

Porfoct harmony exists in tho
