ORPUEUK CO. PROSPECTUS
The success with which the Orpheum
Company. Limited, has met during the
two months of Its organization, and the
encouragement it has received from the
growing popularity ot tne theater, nave
resulted In a plan for enlarging the scope
of its business, by which it takes over the
title and control of the theatre premises
and the adjoinlrw "Ori'heutn Block"
building on hurt street, and undertakes the
conduct of a hotel, cafe and bar In conjunc
tion with the theatre.
A statement made of the theatre busi
ness at the end of .the first six weeks of
the company's existence, showed a net
profit of $722, whlch.Jiad there been.no
rent to pav. would represent a monthly
net earning of over $770, or over fo.ooo'
pjr year a prom or 120 per cent on me
original capitalization of $7,503.
I lie Orpheum Hotel during the same
time has cleared about J 2 50 per month,
which the absence of rent would Increase
to 5475, making an annual profit of $5,700.
The entire propsrty purchased yields a
rental of S7.500 per vear. which amount
t Is now saved to the company. The pup
chase price of the real property is $57,-

To enable the company to carry out the
proposed undertaking, application has
been made to the Minister of the Interior
, lot leave to amend the original articles
or association so as to increase the capltall
zatlon to $100,000, divided Into 5,coo
ohares at the par value of $2C each.
This means an addition of $92,500. of
which there will be 42.500 in paid up
stock, and $50,000 In assessable stock-
one assessment of 25 per cent to be levied
J at the outset.

After thirteen! hours of peril on

until 9:15 a. m. tndiy, the Ameri
can bark Conlinga, Captain Evans,
with 1G0O tons of fertilizer, 106
days from Carteret, New York,
was towed into the Imrlior by tho.
tug Eleu and anchored uuinjured
in the stream.
This is Oiptain Evans' first
trip to Honolulu. The birk waa

next moment the Oonliugn was

fearfully and grinding the coral

It waa a little after 8 o'clock
whop tho ship grounded, signals

The Eleu wont to the rescue as

the soene nbout 11 o'clock. Sbo

12:30 thiti morniug the Iroquois
started to holp tho Coalinga.
It was not until daylight, how
ever, that hawsers of sufficient

nnd thon tbo tugging commenced
The Conlinga had all sail set
and tho tugs did their bent, at a
quarter p6t nine thin inornini!, at
high tide, the combinod efforts of
the two tugs brought the bark
eafely off the roef.
W heu Cnptain Evnus at day

come of tho Coalinga, ho regretted
having attempted to take his ves

was aboard tbo bark long before
she was off the coral; if kIih had

Tho Iroquois lost her hawser
after tho trouble was over, and
was sometime picking it up before
