"When a Bulletin ropresenta
tiro called ou Commissioner Mars

Lthis morning that pentlemau was
in a pock of 'trouble. Some time
since .bo notified tbe public
through tbo newspapers that those
who wished to procuro some fine
Guatemala coffee seed could hear
of something to their advantage.
This was that he had mado ar
rangements to procuro a supply
of tho best seed from a reliable
person in Guatemala and that he
would take orders for the same nt
I a certain price. Tho orders enmo
I all right but the price didn't, and
I that wos what worried tho Com
I miesiouer today. "Hero I
have orders for threo or four
hundred pounds of coffee,"
ho said to tho reporter, "aud theso
peoplo expect mo to pay for it, pay
the freight, look after it when it
arrives and wait six mouths for
my money. 1 can't do it ou my
present salary and the Bureau of
Agriculture has no money for the
purpose. However, I shall order
by Friday's steamer a small lot
for those plnnters who have sent
tho money with their orders, and
tho red will bnve to go without.
If you know nnyone else who
wants any Guatemala coffee for
seed, tell them to come and leave
their orders with me before to
night nnd bring some money

Most of tho themomoters in Ho
nolulu went down to a lower notch
this morning than evor before, tho
exceptions being a few instruments
that wore here in 18G5, for siiico
that year the atmosphere has novor
beon so cold as it was this morn
ing. At 3&0 this morning tho ther
mometer registered 52 degrees at
Frank Brown's residenco. At
6:30 it was 54. It was 52 at a
number of plnces nt Waikiki. At
Cecil Brown's residence at 7:30,

At Chief Justico Judd's homo

surprised to find Unit it hud fid

during tho night. Muuy other
thermometers lu different poi tiout,
of the pity registoied 52, 53 oi 51
degrees, either of thoso figuies
being lower than any recorded
tempornturo in years.
Discussing the peculiar weather
this morning with a Bulletin
reporter Mr. Frauk Brown mud
tho lowest temperature over re
corded iu this city was in 1875
when tho Trausit of Vouub
party were here. Their in
struments modo the record
1G degrees, sinco which there
has boon no such cold spell us the
present. Mr. Brown is a very
close obsorvor of the weather and
climatic conditions geuornlly. Ho
is getting to bo of tho opinion that
our climate is gradually getting
colder, or else as ho face
tiously observed, "tho islands
aro drifting north." Tho baro
meter soems to bo on a go-ns-you
please racket up in tho morning
and down in tho afternoon. Ho
can only account for tho present
variable woathor on tho theory
that a rotary storm is iu
progress soraowhore near
these islauds, of which
wo aro liablo to got tho tail oud.
Thoso peculiar storms always avoid
tho islands according to Mr.
Brown's observations, and we on
ly got their beginning or wind
up. The electric storiu which do
vnetated a portion of Kapiolaui
park last year was local and of an
ontiroly different nature to the
rotary hurricanes which aro mot
with between those islands and
Japan, ono of which is probably
now raging not very far away
from the islands.
Mr. Brown says the coldest
woathor ho romombers in tho isl
ands was when ho was living at
his father's placo nt Waialua, but
be does not remember tho yoar.
Ho doos romombor, howovor, that
tho thermometer registered 42
there and at Ewa whilo tho Tran
sit of Venus party woro horo.
He is well convinced that a storm
is brewing for these islands in tho
noxt day or two, and still holds to
tho view that it will bo wind in
