RICH AND YERY RARE RUGS
Silk Rug from the Shah of Persia's
A Most Artistic Exhibit of Oriental Textures
Which May Be Seen
Tomorrow tbo nrt-loving pooplo
of Now Honolulu will havo on op
portunity of viewing the fineBt col
lection of gonuino Persian and
Turkish rugs over displayed in
this city, or for that mattor in any
city in tho United Stntos.
Tho rugs corao direct from Con
stantinople. Thoy woro carefully
and conscientiously selected by M.
B. Mihran, an Amoaeian and a
connoisseur well and favorably
known to artistic peoplo in Paris,
London, Berlin and the Now
Mr. Mihran is an Oriental scho
lar of elucidation. He has com
passed tho world soveral times in
tho internet of art; to blond tho
artistic olomeots of tho fai East
with thoso of tho far WoBt.
Ho hns mado a special study of
rugs; with their texturo, workman
ship tho harmonizing effects of
coloring ho is an adept.
In tho collection which Mr.Mih-
ran has brought to this city are
many of tho finest rugs tho writer
has evor seen, and ho is speaking
now from a truly artistic stand
point. Tho grandest rug in tho exhibi
tion comes from the Shah's private
palaco, and is known as tho Shah's
praying rug. It is mado of silk
and is of tho most oxquisito design
and workmanship. Then, too, thero
is the Kirman-l'alaco rug which
has attracted so much attontion
throughout tbo art conters of tbo
world. It is intricato in design
and toxturo; a rug of surpassing
beauty, tho colors harmonizing to
such an aomo of happiness as to
form a perfect wholo. To tho en
thusiastic artist it is worth a trip
from Hilo to boo.
Thoso unacqaaintod with Turk
ish and Persian rugs, who visit
tbo oxhibit expecting to seo tbo
gaudy and vulgar coloring so pro
dominant in American rugs, will
bo disappointed. Turkish and
Persian rugs aro colored with
vcgotablo coloring, and not witli
chemicals which fado and loso
their lustro if they evor had any.
The rugs from the Oriental aro
subdued in color, quiet and rich
in blending. To those iguorant
of their workmanship thoy might
be called dull and oveu dirty.
Such characterization only calls
for derision from connoisseurs.
A gonuino hand-mado Turkish
rn, such as aro iu this collection,

iuiprovo with ago.
At the exhibition tomorrow Mr.
Mihran will recoivo" visitors in
Oriental custom. Ho will also
oxplain tbo art of Oriental rug
inakiuu, except the coloring, which
is n profound eecrot with the
Persians and Turks. Ho has a
lojm to practically illustrato his
lecturo. Tho public aro cordially

MR. DOLE ON THE GOVERNORSHIP.
A representative of the BULLETIN called on President Dole
and asked him if he was willing to give his views on the Gov
ernorship for publication. The President replied promptly by
asking the reporter to be seated and take down the desired
statement trom dictation. Mr. Dole then said:
"I do not consider that the matter of the governorship is
similar to u questionof the election of an official by voters, and
although it is proper for people who are Interested in good gov
ernment to express themselves as to the personnel of the office
as suggestions to the appointing power it would be out of
place for me to nominate myself for the position and work for
my appointment. The appointing power alone is responsible."

Prosidont Ather'on, after tho
dispatch of routine business, stated
thojpooial object of this meeting.
It was to considor tho crowd od
stato of tho harbor, which was in
terfering in increasing degrco with
tho business not only of tbo port
but of tho country at largo. Tho
cbambor was asked to consider
suggestions to tho local Govern
ment for increasing wharf accom
modation. As gonorally under
stood tho harbor belonged now to
the Uaitod Statos, tho Governmont
of which had formally taken pos
session of a certain dock froutago.
1'resumably tno local Uovornmont
was uot debarred from providing
wharfage, so long as the harbor
was not injured, ltomarks from
members wore invited.
Mr. Hall inquirod about tho do
ings of a committee appointed at a
previous meeting. In reply Mr.
Hackfeld and Mr. Giffard showed
that thocommitteohad fulfilled its
functions whan it laid tho mattor
beforo tho Government and ob
tained promisos of its considera
tion. Mr. Dillingham was suggested
by Mr. Schaofor as tho man hav
ing bad moBt experience of any of
thorn with wharf matters. In re
ply Mr. Dillingham gavo an out
lino of tho dealings of tho Oahu
Railway and Land Company with
tho Govornmont. This was not a
spooial concern of that company
at present, however, for if the
company wero not in existence
thero would bo just as much con
gestion in harbor facilities. Tho
Bpoaker related tho circumstances
of various offers ho had made to
tho Govornmont, on behalf of tho
company, to build wharves and
drodgo out docks, but nono of
which offors would tho Govern
ment entortain. 'In tho nondinc
litigation betwoon tho Uovorument
and tho Uauu Hallway and Land
Company, ono decision had been
ronuereu whioh gavo thirty-four
findings in favor of tho company.
Tho course of tho Govornmont
was the most notable examplo ho
had evor known of masterly inac
tivity. Ho said this although
ovory membor of tho Govornment
was his porsoual friond. The
dredging of tho slip cloeo to tho
Paoiho Mail wharf had been cost
ing tho Govornment S2.70 a cubic
yard. His company was rofused
permission to drodgo away a mud
bank near its wharf, allowing all
questions of ownership and con
trol to Iio settled afterward. A
San Francisco concorn had offer
ed tho company to do tho work at
30 conts a cubio yard aooording to
tuosampio ot material tnrwartlod.
Mr. Giffard auggestod tho ap
pointment of n committeo.
Mr.Sohaefor thought the former
committeo had not boou disoharg
od, but, tho secrotary stating that
it had, moved that a committeo bo
appointed to mako representations
to tho Govornmont of tho immedi
ate necessity of increased harbor
Mr. McLean moved to amend
