Story of Jimmy Smart, How at Police
Tells ot How he Came to be Here-Lett Father
and Mother -Worked In Skaguay
Ever since tho arrival in port of
tliH City of Columbia thero has
beon confined at tho police station,
nu eleven your old hid, who wont
nbonrd tho steamer as a Btowaway
for IIouolulu, whoro ho expected
to miiko n living. Jimmy Smart
is tho Diwno the boy uses but his
correct namo is James O'Brien.
IIo has traveled up in tho cold
Klondike regions all by hiuiBolf,
making onough to travel from
place to place. In Honolulu ho
seemed to see a futuro and, for
that rensou, did his best to got
horo. Jimmy's story is best told
in bin own words:
"My mother and father lived up
in Mouto Cristo in tho Cascado
Mountains whoro dad worked in a
mine. Mother aud father had
frequent quarrols and I couldn't
stand it auy longer, so on May
21st, 1895, I rau away, saying
nothing whntevor of my inten
tions. I wout to Snohomish aud
then to Maohias. Thero I got
employment in a mill, nailing
bauds, working for S3 a week,
with board and lodging.
"Business bocamo dull and 1
wout to Everett and from thero
to Soattlo whoro I orrivod about
12 o'olook at night. A policoman
collared mo but I told him how I
was situated and ho allowed mo to
go. Tho next day I got an outfit
. and went to shining shoes but
"" business was not good, and after
two weeks I oast in my luck with
the Nowsboys Union. Again
thero was a dullness in business
and I went to Taoom . I wont in
had onough money to buy him
out. In another month I sold out
for $20 aud staited out for Junoau
whero I worked in Slim Jim's
theatro long onough to make $20.
Then I went to Skaguay.
' In Skaguay I romainod for ton
months working in a thoatro. I
did a 'coon turn' with Schwartz
and then wont back to Soattlo,
' landing there with $50 in my
" i was thoro whon Soapy Smith,
a frioud of mine, was shot. I was
rustling beor on tho floor of tho
thoatro when Soapy Smith ran
past with a Winchester. I know
there was going to bo troublo.
Alter tho shooting men rushed up
and down tho streets with Win
chesters and revolvers. It was tho
roughest place I wrb over in.
" From Soattlo I went to Kont
and worked on a farm for some
1 time. Then I wont Im.-k to Seattle
1 and stowed awtiy in ihe City of
Columbia. When ihn bontswain
found mo in tho forecastle, ho
caught mo by tho back and used
mo very roughly, saying all the
while ho would 'keel-haul' me. It
didn't turn a hair of my head.
Then I wont to the captain. Well,
tho long anu sunn oi u is iiiui x
was mado to work vory hard and
at tho eud waB locked up.
" I like the country well onongh
what littlo I've soon of it. Jack
Melanphy, tho othor turnkey, De
tective Kaapa and all tho oflicors
bavo been vory kind to mo. I
shouldn't run away if I woro al
lowed to go out."

American Union party wasorau
ized March 1, 189-1, as tho out
growth of tho Annexation Club
and tho Amorican League No
other political body supported tho
polioy of annexation.
Tho main object of tho party
was to assist and support tho Pro.
visional Government in tho for
mation of tho Republic of Hawaii,
then to maintain tho Ropublia
until annexation should bo ac-
chioved. It proved its ropreson-
miivu uMiuuuiur uy electing us

Tho party olocted its candidatos
for both braucuos of tho Legisla

This Contral Committoo was
elected by tho nominating con
vention that sat in the latter year.

Mn. Editoii: Tho iutorost wo

a number of callers from tho
ranks of tho much-talked of stoor
ogo passongors arriving iu Hono
lulu of lato nud, in justico to thoso
strangers, wo desire to say that wo
aro agrooably surprised to find
that all thoso we havo had the
ploaBiiro to meet, aro intelligent,
clear hoadod, progrossivo mon.
Amongst thorn nro fruit growers,
fruit packers, prcservois, confoo
tiouors, brick makors, mechanics,
larmors ana agricultural exports,
and canners. Thoro is certainly
more room for cannors, brick
makors and agricultural oxports at
this timo in Hawaii than thero is
for moro lawyers aud dootors.
Most of tho mon who havo arrived
recontly havo money, tools and
soeds and somo camohoro to mako
observations for capitalists iu tho
East and Wost. A mau cortainly
should not bo blackballed or
suoerod at bocauso ho happeus to

our most thrifty and woll-to-do
Honolulu mechanics como nud go
as stoorago passungors, ns thoy
oauuot make $50 a wook oasior.
Ouo of tho fruit men desires to
start n modern cannory for tho
preserving of tropical and semi
tropical fruit and vecotablos.
Such a factory would provo of in
ostimnblo vuluo to small fruit
growors nnd would give employ
ment to nativo boys anu girls.
Why should wo not have a fac
tory of this kind on each island'
A fow industries of this kind
would bo of moro value to Hilo
thau a half dozon fruit carrying
steamers. Look ovor tho report of
tho Collector of Customs and see
tho amount of canned goods wo
import pickles, jams, jollies and
canned goods ot all kinds. Tho
export of chutnoy nlono from
Liongal and Calcutta is more thau
our wholo coffeo export. Wo havo
here all tho ingrodients for mak
ing chutney-tamarinds, mangoes,
poppers, onions nud torantoes.
For the fiscal year, ending Juno
30, 189G, thero wus imported into
tho United Htatos, 11,900,700
pounds of figs, valued at thej port
of export, at $039,512 Tho figs aro
sold at auction iu Now York from
nine to twenty - five couts per
pouud. Assuming that tho nvorage
sum paid was ton cents per pound,
tuo amount paid tlio oxporters in
foroiuu couutrios for lies would
nverago about 1,200,000 a year.
Iuib amount of 1ms could ho

dor proper conditions. It would bo
a low estimato to say tiiut one
million dollars' worth of figs
for homo consumption, stuumers,
men-of-war aud shipping genorally
would bo used. Who would not
eat figs at tivo cents per pound ?
Fig troes produco two crops of
