One of tho most remarkable
business successes achieved in re
cent years falls to the credit of T.
E. Cowart and J. H. Kirkpatrick,
formerly attorneys of San Anto
nio, Texas, eays a late Call. Thoir
work is the more noteworthy in
that it has accomplished much for
tho moral improvement and happi
ness of their fellow men.
While preparing for his depar
ture for Honolulu on the steamer
Australia at the Grand Hotel on
TueB(lay,Mr. Cowart condescended
to tell something of his unusual ex
periences in connection with his
enterprise to a representative of

for tho cuio of drinking and mor

thorough investmatiou of the
limltt'i, lit bought the right to uso
the hnuie from Dr. F. A. Sutpon.
Associated uith him iu his now

pany with a capital of 100,000.
Tbe.curoh that they effected there
more than met their fondest anti
cipations. Many of tho peoplo
whom they treated are now filling
important positions. Previous to
the advent of the institution theso
same men had been given up by
even their deal est friends and re
latives, and were virtually social
paiiahs, and going more and more
rapidly to complete degradation
What greatly aided these gen
tlemeu to accomplish the great
work they iliad undertaken, and
which soon gave them fame and
fortune, was the strict business
principles they adoped and faith

wh given a guarantee of being
absolutely cured. "No cure, no
pay," was their motto, and in no
instance did they give any ouo
ra'iin i f complaint.
Later Ihey went lo Los Augelos
aud organized a Cure Institute
theio, uith the same success that
hnd attended their efforts at San
Jose. They also operated in othtr
portions of the State, aud always
with the same gratifying results.
After a period of unqualified
success iu this State Messrs. Cow
irl Hiid Kirkpatrick sought foreign
fields. They left for Honolulu
and there established another suc
cessful iubtitute, interesting with
them such well known mou as W.
It. Castle, L. 0. Abies, Alexander
Young, J. Alfred Magoon, P. C.
Jones, Mr. Athertou and m my
others. The institute was opened
there the 2d of November, and
sinco that time they havo troated
moro than 100 cases, with tho
invariable success that followed
Mr. Cowart's object in coming
to this city at this time was to so
oure the right for the Hagoy euro
for Africa. This ho succeeded in
doing. Realizing tho great im
portanco of the new project ho
proposed to engage in, Mr.. Cow
art, before consummating matters,
telegraphed to Judge W. G. Ruck--or
of Groosbeck, Tex., to como on
and assist in closing up the deal.
He mot Judgo Ruckor in San
Francisco, and no timo was lost
in getting matters in shape for tho
new field of operations. The no

A broad policy of futuro work
has been outlined by the proprie
tors of this cure. Among other
things it is proposed to thorough- '
ly introduce tho cute by the oh
tablishment of institutes in Nuw
Zealand and Australia, ns well as j
iu Africa. On Mr. Cowart's re- I
turn to Honolulu ho will at once
mako preparations for tho Aus ,
traliau journey. Ho will be ac
companied by Mr. Kirkpatrick
aud Mr. Abies. Wheu thewoik
of organization iu the Antipodes
is concluded a party will head at
once for Africa, wheyo' uudoubt
edly fortuno will continue to
stuilo upon them.

Messrs. Cowart, Kirkpatrick, L.
O. Abies, J. Alfred Magoon and
Frank "McStockor. Their choico
of Africa was brought about after
a careful investigation of condi
tions thcro obtained from careful
ly prepared reports. Theso indi
cated that Africa was moro in
need of tho good work which they
propose to do than any other soc
tion probably on tho globe.
Iu all their transactions Mr.
Cowart and the gontlemon who
havo been iututodted with him
in ado it a particular point to cou
duct their institute in a most business-like
way. They made no
pretenco of posiug an philauthro

Their purposes were woll express
ed in a few words by Mr. Cowart.
He said: "Wo go into a new place.
We don't pretend to preach or
teach morals, but go with a reme
dy that wo know will cure for
good the drinking and morphine
habits. Wo go with a fair and
square buxiuess proposition. Wo
agreo to eiloct a cure or, falling, to
demand no pay."

Full confirmation has been ob

that he waB favorably disposed
thereto Mr. Cooper did not deem
it advisable to give the text of the

From other sources it is learn

day.- At the appointed time tho
two Hawaiian representatives
went to tho Whito House, where
they wore met by the President's
privato secretary, who ushered
them at onon into the President'
privato sanctum. The interview
lasted twenty minutes. At its
conclusion President McKinley
asked tho two Hawaiians what
they would advise as to tho best
coursA to bring the' annexation
question up, whether by a Joiut
Resolution or by a Treaty.
Thoy answered that in such
nu important question it was
not for them' to judge, "they
would be satisfied if the quostiou
was raised in any shape. While
not expressing himself in defiuitn
