were so unfortunate as to contract
diseases of various kinds, found it
nocessary to remain in thoir beds,
surrounded by thoto perfectly
well. A short time ago, there
wero quito a number of eises of
measles nt St. Louis College and
tho necessity for a small hospital
was then emphasized. The Bishop
of Punapolis iutoioUed himsolf in
the matter aud off ere I at onco to

Owing to tho limited tirao, tho
intorviow with James A. Scryrn

and promoter, had to bo given
only in eoleotod part yesterday.
After saying that tho matter would
depend on Congress, and that in
dications woro favorablo to a cable
built, maintained and operated by
tho United States Govornment,
Mr. Scrymsur proceedod thus:
"My understanding is that they
do not proposo to go beyond Ha?
wail, leaving it to open competi
tion for beyond. That is, which
over company makes the most ad
vantageous bid will rccoivo tho

cable corapsuy of that importance,
involving ospouditure of $10,000,
000, could hardly bo floated under
thocontlitiou for in this instance
both ends would bo controlled by
goverumuut, one ond by tho
Uuitol States and tho other by tho
Chiuoae and Japanese"
It was here that Mr. Scrymscr

" I toll you candidly," Mr.
Scrymser said to the Bulletin
reporter, "thero is going to be a
cable across tho Pacific, but it will
go by way of Alaska beforo it
coraos by Hawaii.
" It is vory easy to raise S5.000,

to undertake at my time of life.

United States lost tho chanco of

ought to bd divided up into lengths
of 2000 to 2500 miles. A cablo
1000 miles long must bo twice as
heavy as one 200 miles long.

pounds of copper to the mile for a

cannot pick up a cablo of that
weight. It would break, and bo

Whon B. F. Dillingham had
mapped out the hotel at "Wainluo,
be submitted his plans to some of
tho best known buBinoss men of
tho city with a viow to obtaining
thoir views on tho feasibility of
tho project. Thero were nouo
who gavo him any oncouragetnont.
Instoad, tbey clubbed a man a
vory misguided person who would
think of putting up a hotel in
such a placo. No ono would
patronize it and tho scheme would
bo a losing one. Mr. Dillingham
nevor falterod in his purpose but
went on with tho work. His
plans woro drawn and, in a short

Before leaving in the Coptic yes
terday Edward Pollltz, of San
Francisco, who has been here for
several weeks working up a deal in
Sugar Stock, took with him 4K00
shares of the Onomea Sugar Co's
stock. This Is one of the largest
blocks of stock ever transferred to
one person on these Islands. , The

a controlling interest in me pian- wi
and the management will remain ns 1
before one year with Castle &
Cook and the next with C. Brewer k
& Co. The stock bought by Mr! W
Pollltz will be put on the San-Fran- J
dsco market and probably redivlded 1
at a ratio of four or five to one. s
time, tho building was in process
of construction and, ou or about
tho first of May, tho placo will be
openod to the public.
Tho hotol proper haB been dwelt
upon in tho columns of this papor
before but thero aro othor plans
of later development, that will
mako the whole place a hundred
fold mora attractive.
Tho hotel itsolf is boing built
by tho very best of carpouters out
of tho vory best of material and
comfort in tho main factor in the
plans. Tho parlor, othco, dining
room and other places below are
to bo surrounded by a wide lanni

points, n complete survey of tho

and the view of sea and mountains
magnificent, will bo some twolve

taken to have tho placo modern in
overy rospeot, that tho porcelain
bath tubs have boen bought in
Sovoral fino cottages nro to bo
built about tbe hotel for tho ac
commodation of families or ponplo
who want to bo by themselves.
TheBO will be as completo in them
solves as tho hotel.
A plan of vory latest develop
ment had just boon arranged by
Mr. Dillingham. A log, hut to
be built out of tho various kinds
of Hawaiian woods found in tho
mountains near by, will soon be
in process of construction. This
i'b to be about five miles mauka of
tho hotol on higher ground.
Tho situation picked out is
beautiful. It is on the Kawailoa
ridge and on oithor side is a deop
glon where forns and othor tropic
al'growth abound. Like the hotel
the hut is to bo a rallying placo.
