" Don't Hobson Ibo window,"
was a placard only tbo other day
romoved from ono of tho stamp
windows in tho Omaha main
A stamp olork asked, "How is
that?" when givon Honolulu lot
tery to weigh. ' He bad novor been
instructed that Postal Union
rates still prevailed betwoon the
American mainland and Hawaii.
No wonder island people havo had
to pay extra postage.
Omaba is spread over an im
mense area for its population of
70,000. "" There are many unim
proved loti scattered all over the
city, overgrown with words and
trewn with rubbish, Notwith
standing, the streets and sidewalks
are admirable to the ontorcocfinea,
excepting stretches remaining un
graded. Some of theso gaps ocour
in the lines of etreots having oar
tracks at either end. Streets north
and south are named by number.
Those oast and west are called
after persons and places.
There are some handsome
blocks, prinoipal among which
pay bo named tbo Fedoral baild
ing( tho courthouse, New York
Life, city hall, Bee newspaper
building and Sheeley block. New
and cornel? railroad stations urn
about completed for the Union
Pacific And 13. &. M.
The electric oar system is ade
quate and efficient One thing
about it would bejust tbe thing
for double traoks inMhe narrow
Btreots of Honolulu. That is, tbe
having one side of the cars guard,
ed with wire screens, passengers
being ouly admittod and dis
charged on the right hand side,
This obviates all danger of people
(getting between passing oars. The
t cars ouly stop on the farther side
of eaoh intersecting street. There
is but one short piece of single
track, that being' on the 'bridge
crossing tho Missouri to Oounoil
BlnfTs. It has a turnout 'on tho
. middle of the bridge. Fares aro
five cents, with transfors all that
can be desired . One may ride
from tho Exposition at this north
end of the oity to South Omaha,
about eight miles, and get a trans
fer to the local cars ot that other
To Oounoil Bluffs, Iowa, tho
fare is ton cents, iucluding trans
fers to any of the local cura Tho
rido is a delightful one, extra largo
curs being ueo:1. In recommend
ing tho trip to Captain Towse, the
writer said the car was as big as a
battloship. When ho saw tho
vehicle he disputed this informa
tion, contending that it was not
larger than a gunboat.
The finest hospitality tho Ha
waiian repruBentativeB have yet re
ceived was that given them yes
terday evening by tho Oounoil
Bluffs Bioycle Club. Tboy were
treated to supper at tho finest cafe
in tho Iowa city, then conducted
to Manawa lake swimming resort,
Oaptain Towso rode with the
olub, while the writer was escorted
to the place in a steam oar. To
reaoh tho bath houses a large
steam launch was takeu across tbe
lake. After an hour in tho water,
the guests were conducted to tho
club's apartments in tho leading
hotel of Council Bluffs, where an
olegaut collation was served. Then
tho evening was whiled away until
midnight with music, conversa
tion and a pool game. Tho guests
returned to Omaba in the laBt oar,
and were fortunate in gettiug u
car for their lolgings near tho
.Exposition. At tho club rooms
they were on depurturo givon a
most cordial invitation to attend
tho club's aunual picuio wook after
noxt, besides a standing proffer of
tbo freedom of the rooms while
Several promiuont residents of
of Omaba aro contemplating a
visit to tbe islands the com
ing winter. Among those are
Mr. Woller, president of the
Riobardaon Dry Co , with Mrs.
Woller, and Dudley Smith, sec
retary of tho Greater Amerioan
Attendance at tbo fair from
outside continues veiy scant. Ex
cepting on special days the whito
city has a doserted appearauoo:
Among this 'week's visitors at
the Hawaiian ixhibit was Charles
E Kiug, tho bright young Ha.
waiiau teachor.on his way to Piatt
Institute, Brooklyn, N. Y., for a
course of two years. Ho wbb
shown around, as far as possible
in bis limited stay.
There was a big but dull Labor
Day parade. Only one feeble
band of music was in the line,
while tho floats were not note
worthy. On tho samo day King
ling Brothers' circus gave a mag
nificent s.roet pageant. It bad
packed tents afternoon and even
ing. There has probably never
been its equal on tbe roads. Neith
er Barnum'a nor Forop'augh's of
yore, both of whioh I havo seen,
may bo named jn tho same day.
Three rings have continuous per
formances. No two other circuses
conld ever have presented such
an array of beautiful horses, nor
well trained by a long shot. Fif
teen olephauts performed in the
ring, all aa agile aud Bupplo as
trained.dogs. They would all sit
up together, stand ou their heads
blow bass trumpets, etc. Tho
acrobatics and trapezo was be
yond comparison with anything
that bus ever reaohed Honolulu.
There must have been from 20,
000 to 30,000 people uuder tho
canvas at eaoh performance
Th Hawaiian Village conces
sioners have just lost au applic
ation for au injunction to restrain
a very clever "spieler" from taking
employment with tho Philippine
Village. His name ia Tobiu, and
ho is a goaius as a barker in oith
er factor fiction. He succeeded the
clumsy tonter written about to Mr.
Spencr. He-o is a sample of his
oloquence before a gaping crowd
ot country folk on a reoent dull
evening: "Come inBi'do now. Tbe
pe'formanoe is just starting. Bp
foro entering the theater you will
have an opportunity of studying
the actual lifo of the Philippines.
When 'you have passed throng h
this gate you will see a thousand
popple from Manila-soldiers nd
sailors, peasants and tailors. Be
sides you will see twelve thousand
Philippines curios, including the
famous Logan aud Towso collect
ion from the island ollloilo."
The judge decided against the
Hawaiian snow managers ou the
ground that the "spieler" o not
tbo show, as Sara Bernhardt
might be considered if she broke
a contract for her appearance Wo
woro much interested in tho case,
as it seemed to h'nge on tho con

A Chinaman came up in the
Police Court this forenoon on tbe
charge of op(um unlawfully in
possession. Ho pleaded guilty
but Judge Wilcox did not say
anything for a moment. Thon up
broke out with "where is the
other Chinaman ? There were
two arrested and uo favors should
be shown. Just because a man
happens to bo an influential fellow
is no reason why he should not
be brought before tho Court."
Deputy Marshal Ohillingworth
stated that tho dofeudaut had
taken all the blame on himself.
Judge Wiloox fined him 125 "to
get at tho other fellow."

Thomas Wall of Wall, Ni

ness called to tbo Bland.
He admitted that, according to
tho agreement between tho Volca
no and his business house, ono
half of tho profits of tbo publica
tion should accrue to Wall, Ni

know nothing, either in rogard to
tho Volcano's books, tho circula
tion of the paper, who wroto tho
editorials or whether .the Volcano
was a paying institution or not.
F. J. Cody was tho next wit
ness to be examined. Cody is tbo

While Mr. Wall was on the
witness Btand it was brought out
that ono of tho reasons, if net tbe
chief reason for Mr. Wall's objeot

Mr. Marshal had shown him a let
ter from President McKinley, on
the bottom of whioh letter wero
writton certain sentences, which,
if printed, would injure certain
prominent firms of Honolulu.
-This subject was not gono into,
however, as it had ao direct bear

Wall refused to allow tho lot'tor
to bo published as ho wished to
protect hirasolf against possible
