Thero is u gentleman temporari
ly staying in this city, Edwin L.
Vicreck of Los Angeles, who is
well acquainted with Brewster
Cos Kcnyou of California, who is
a prominent candidate for tho
poet of, Consul-General to Hawaii
under President McKiuloy. Mr.
Viorcok said this morning, in an
awor to a requestfor 'information
about the man who may bo prom
inently identified witll Hawaii for
tho next four years:
"Brewster Cox Konyon isia gon
tleman of independent moans who
makos his homo at Long Beach, a
prominent seasido resort a few
miles from Los Angeles. I have
boon intimately acquainted
with him for a numbor
of years past. Ho is
a gentleman in overy sense of the
word and well fitted by education
aud personal attainments to fill
any puoitioa in tho coubnlar ser
vice of the United StatoB. Ho is
quito a young man, about 35 or
3G I should say. Ho has no regu
lar occupation, being possessed
of considerable means. He is
now in Saorumento in attondanco
on the Califdruia Legislature of
which ho is a member, having
boon elected to tho Assembly on
tho Republican ticket at tho re
cent election. He represents tho
72d Assembly district of Cali
fornia, which comprises a portion
of Los Augoles County fronting
tho ocean and inoludes Long
"Like most mon of means,"
continued Mr. Yioreck, "Mr. Kon
yon hus a hobby. It is tho col

which ho is quito nu outhusiast.
Ho has tho reputation of be

oil a book on Hawaiian' stamps
about two yearB ago which is now
tho rocoguized authority in tho
United States. Ho wroto it for
his own umueomout aud publish
ed ouly a limited edition. The
books wore gobbled up by col
lectors aud aio haul to obtain. I
thought I had one with mo but
find 1 loft it iu Los Angeles. Mr.
Konyon paid a shoit visit to Ha
waii about six mouths ago, and I
think he has boon hero before
that. Mr. Konako of tho post
office is also well acquainted with
Louis Konako was soon by tho
reporter but would only say that
Mr. Keuyon wos a very fino gou
tlemun and a great personal
frioud, whom ho had known foi a
numbor of years.
These arc days of considorablo
auxioty and perplexity to all who
have possessions or other interests
in tho Bepublio of Hawaii, and it
is timo that our citizens camo to a
mutual understanding on soyoral
important issues. The prospects
for Annexation appear at present
vague and indistinct, and our
destiny cannot bo foretold with
certainty. Thoro aro thoBO, also,
who still fondly cling to tho hope
of a return to tho old order of
things, and who cannot bo per
suaded otherwise, yot this out
look appears far moro hazy than
that of Annexation oven to tho
most hopeful disciplos of tho
Monarchy. But, fortunatoly, in
tho midst of all this uncertainty
thoro is solaco in tho fact that
Buffalo Boor has came to stay and
that patrons of all sorts and

An extraordinary story was
told at an inquest at Peckham the
other day. Twenty-six years ago
tho dead man wub speaking with
a half-Bovoieign in his month.
Suddenly ho exclaimed, "I've
swallowed it."' It was truo; ho
had, aud tha coin was produced at
tho inquest. It bore tlato 18(10,
and for moro than a quartor of a
century had been embedded in
the left branch of the brouchial
tubo, without apparently injuring
its holder, who died from a
diseased heart.- Wo aro reminded
of tho caso of tho peer who swal
lowed half-a-crown whilst ongaged

"Wo again call tho attention of
our fellow citizens to tho matter
of a hospital for incurables espe
cially consumptives. When a bo
ginning is made wo have no doubt
but that something substantial
will bo douo by our liberal com
munity. It will bo remembered
by some that King Kamehamoha

Perhaps something of this kind
