While J. B. Wilson of Hllo was In ths
States recently, he succeeded In buyln
v'a ranch In the Bute of Nevada that will
i'tnean a great deal for himself as well
as all the other people In the -Islands
who need horses and mules for th?
business In which they are engaged
This Idea of purchasing a ranch was
what Mr. Wilson had In mind when he
rnado the trip some months ago and he
succeeded better than he thought at
first. Seen by a Bulletin reporter this
morntngf, Mr. Wilson had the follow
ing to sayj.
"Yes, It Is truo that I have bought a
ranch. Its area Is four thousand acres
and It Is situated on the Reese rlvsr,
one of the moat fertile regions In tho
Stnto of Nevada. This property Is a
part of an eight thousand acre tract
of government land. The remainder U
still In the hands of the government,
"It Is a stock ranch In every sense of
tho word and has been used for that
purpose, for many years past so that
you see, I will not havo the foundations
to lay. Dy gaining control of the four
thousand acres I mentioned, I also gain
control of all the water on the land
which flows from a lot of springs that
never run dry at any season of the
. year. ... .
"My present Intention Is to raise
boiBea, mules and cattle In large num
bers. The cattle will be sold at vari
ous points near by, while the horses
and mules will be sent to the Islands.
.The majority of these latter will be
hipped direct to Hllo from Ban Fran
'clsco but of course, a few will come to
Honolulu. The main object I have In
mind Is to supply live stock for my
business In Hllo. What I have let:
over, will be sold ,to various partl-s
-desiring live stock. -Attention will bo
paid to blooded stock.
"The ranch Is capable of holding 10,
000 head of live stock without the least
trouble. It has a record of furnishing
2000 tons of hay a season and six hun
dred acres of It has already been plant
ed in alfalfa. There Is alo a larje
amount of meadow land outside.
"I have placed A. F. Hooker In
chareg of the ranch. He has been as
sociated here with me In the stock
business and Is well known to all thJ
stock men of the country. He Is a flint
rate man and I feel no hesitancy what
ever In placing the whole proposition In
his hands, I will attend to this end of
tho business and will make frlps to
tho ranch from time to tlmej
In the Police Court this forenoon, tho
following cases were disposed of: Pj
loalea, selling spirituous liquor with
out a license, $100 and costs; Ah Pau,

no Idea as to what he had done with It.
However, ho was perfectly willing to

Pae had been with the Tramways Co.

one of their most trusted drivers. It Is

found to be sufficient to repay for the
The development of Pacific Heights Is
marvelous. Indeed, no one but a Desky
could have had the enterprise and push
to attempt the proposition of opening
up the plsce and many have laughed at
him for his work; butMr. Desky baa
not been bluffed out. for a minute. He
weighed the matter carefully and went
to work and now he haa a place that U
bound to bring In handsome returns.
With the electric cars In operation as
they are now; a business man can get
to town as quickly as fromvj Hopkin's
switch -on ttu Walklkl road.i i
Bealdes building the fine roads on the
Heights, Installing the reservoir that
furnishes the finest water on the Island,
and Improving various lots for sale,
thousands of trees of different varieties
have been planted about In advanta
geous positions. Although but a few
months In the ground, they a're growlug
llko weeds so that In a couple ot years.
Pacific Heights will be covered with
foliage of the most beautiful variety
to Jt- found In the tropics. Among this
large collection are quite a number,of
koa trees, as well aa large collections ot
other native trees.
On the lqt chosen by Mr, Desky for'a
home, may be seen the most extensive
Improvements. This -place has been
terraced and, to the rear Is a spacious
lawn upon which the grass Is growing
In fine style. Valuable treees are plant
ed about and everything Is In readiness
for the erection ot the house.
While the reporter was on tho
Heights. Mr. Desky was kind enough
to show him over the house which he
built recently, for sale. Standing in
this spacious building, the full beauty
and charm of the Heights was at oncu
apparent. A fine breeze, almost to-j
cold to stand In for long, was blowing
down from the mountains and a flno
view ot the city and ocean from Dia
mond Head to Barber's Point, wus
spread out In front.
At first sight, It would seem a difficult
matter to get to ,the, various buildings
on account of the high elevation in
front but on observing the course of the
car line and carriage road, It Is readily
seen that all one haB to do Is to walk
off the road Into the back part of the
houses without doing any climbing a.
all. In fact, the steps in front of the
building need not be used from one
year's end to the other.
It might be stated here that Mr.
Franklin E. Nichols, moved into bU
beautiful home on the Heights on Sat
urday last. He haB found, as others
will that tor him and his family, It Is
just as convenient as living In the
city and very much more pleasant. He
has Installed a gas machine and la mak
ing his own gas but this state ot af
fairs need not last long It It Is desired
to change as soon as there Is something
better, for Mr. Desky Intends to fur
nish electric light to the people on
the Heights as Boon as there are
enough up there to warrant the en
largement of the present plant.
Since the car line has been In opera

ies about land and several sales have
been made. From the appearance ot

At an early hour this morning Officer
Apana arrested a Chinaman up an
orange tree In the yard of Charles Ba
ker, another police officer, back of the
Joss house on King street.
'Apana saw the 'Chinaman sneaking
Along and followed him. The fellow
disappeared a lane and when Apana
arrived wbre he turned off, he could
see nothing of htm. The officer hunted
around la the yards of the vicinity and
was soon rewarded by finding a pair ot
shoes at the foot or an orange tree that
was Isden with fruit.
Apana called to the Chinaman to
come down and 'for answer, the fellow
put his hand to his hip pocket. Apana
drew his revolver and fired Into the

Vaudeville brought out a good house
to the Orpheum last night that seemed
to thoroughly enjoy the entertainment
offered. The new program Is'an inter
esting one, Adams Bang a clever little
Yiddish serenade and retiring behind a
screen, came out arrayed In gorgeous
ness to give two excellent French imi
tations, a coon song, "What ho, She
Bumps" and the Inevitable "Plumber."
Adams Is Invariably amusing and clev
er and an Interesting feature ot tno
program. Miss Raymond deepened thu
Impression she has created by her play.
lug and essayed some local airs whlcn
caught the'audlence although a hula
on the cornet might seem Incongruous
to some. Kurkamp had a Burprlso In
Btore last evening, ajter rendering the
prelude to Cavellerla Rustlcana must
ubly from behind the scenes he came
In front of the street scene and render
ed skillfully and with no little feeling
the Intermezzo as a violin solo, Thin
versatile digression on the part of a
man who Is billed as a tenor soloist
created quite a sensation while Mr.
Kurkamp's masterly handling of tho
violin In whlcti ho was ably assisted
by the orchestra brought out a hearty
lound of applauso ami an encore. Miss
Le C)alre seemed a trifle out of voire
last night. It teems to be the feeling
among that ladles's admirers that Miss
Le Claire's volco and talent are being
wasted on the selections she chooses.
Kerry Dances Is nti old song and not
particularly well suited to bringing out
the best that may Ho In n singer who
has long handled operatic roles. Ida
Howell had n distinct change both lit
style and costume In her Turkish song
which Bho 'carried out very daintily;
her coon song was a great success but
the front of the house does not seem to
take over kindly to cither the Chilly
Widow or the "Lobster" ditties. Thy
arc well sung by Miss Howell but their
doesn't sem to Just hit Honolulu.
Hanlon and Singer with their perfct
mastery ot their branch ot the profes
sion have become strong favorites with
the audience. They give an unmarred
performance of skill and agility and
keep the audience well In their sea's
until the close. Conlon and Ryder
masqueraded as pakes isst night and If
their dialect was peculiar, (heir actions
and hilarious leaps and somersaults put
the house In high good humor. There
are lots of old familiar faces coming
back to the Orpheum nowadays attract
ed by the realy good entertainment offered.
