High Priest Cannon and Retinue to
Arrive on Monday Devotions
and Diversions to Which the
Public is Welcome.
The original Mormon church In the
Hawaiian lalands Is In a quiver of ex
pectancy regarding the grand celebra
tion of Its scml-centenary or Jubilee nu
ntversary next week.
Tomorrow the program committee
will be over from the Lalo colony to
confer with the elders of the city. It ib
already settled that the Orphcum will
be taken on Wednesday and Thursday
for day and night devotions nnd diver
sions. These exercises will be free tii
the attendance oHo public. Speeches,
magic lantern! 'exhibitions and music
will all bo on the bill..
High Priest Ocorgo Q. .Cannon, tha
lineal successor of Urlgham Young as
head of the church. Is expected to ar
rlvo from Salt I.ake City In the steamer
Zealandla onxMondny. Ho Is a vener
able patriarch of S3 winters, a man of
surpassing executive ability and strong
Intellectuality. Thero will be eight
or ten church dignitaries In his en
tourage. Thero Is somo hope, also, that the
vcnerablo prophet, Lorenzo Snow, he
too one of the greatest leaders In Mor
mon nnnnU, may be In the party. It
was ho who camo to these Islands on
December 12, 1830, and Instituted the
pioneer church the very day of his ar
rival. Again he visited the Islands In
ISfil as one of flvo elders upon n dcll
cato mission the nature of which l
better not recalled out of respect for n
dead man of distinction. It was on this
occasion that, as the faithful devoutly
believe, Elder Snow miraculously re
ceived a second lease of life.
Off I-nhalna a boat containing the
1 fhe elders was capsized in tho surf and,
as he himself relates orally nnd In
print. Elder Snow was drowned. Two
hours of searching for his body were
rewarded by finding It caught beneath
n rock. For some tlmo tho regulation
methods of resuscitating the apparent
ly drowned wero vigorously called Into
action but In vain. Elder Snow stirred
not a muscle nor did a sign of Ilfo ap
pear. At this melancholy stage the
late E. P. Adams, the nearest white
resident of Lahalna, nsked the surviv
ors to carry the body to his houso for
temporary cmblamlng and funeral ser
vices. Tho four living ciders declined
the kind offer, refusing to yield their
leader so readily to tho triumph of the
last enemy. They Instead resorted to
the rlto of laying on of hands wi'ii
prayer, and wero soon rejoicing over
Elder Snow como again to ruddy 11!.?.
Nothing can mako the faithful bclloro
but that tho elder was raised from the
dead by n miracle. Elder Abraham
Fernandez of Honolulu met Prophet
Snow at Salt Lake City In 1S9G and

DIED OF HOG CHOLERA
The bark Andrew Welch came In
this morning from San Kranclsco In
command of Captain Drew, 20 days out
from the above port. She has the samo
story to tell as other vessels comlug
Into port to the effect that there were
no trade but light variable winds. Tvo
nights ago she encountered a lightning
storm accompanied by heavy squall,
her rails being under water during the
worst of the storm. The only Item of
Importance was the loss of 215 hogs ou;
of a shipment of some 300. The animals
died In largo number from that dreaded
disease common to hogs. She brought
twenty-six head of horses that look re
markably well as they -stand In their
stalls on board ship. All speed will bo
made In discharging her cargo, so that
she can secure an early clearance.
COLLECTOR STACKABLE AND
SUSPENSION OF STRATEMEYER
Exchange of Words Caused the Action
Stratemeyer Considered He
Was Asked to Act as
A considerable flurry has been oc
casioned In Custom House circles by
Collector Stackablc suspending Georgo
Stratemeyer from pay nnd duty for
htFeen ifays. The cause of this acilon
Is stated to be words which Stratemey
er used In replying to the collector lu
tho presence of other Custom House
This seems to be n crisis In a large
degree of friction that has existed be
tween the collector and Stratcmeye
uvcr since Mr. Stnckable went Into
oltke. The outbreak was brought about
by Stackablc nuking Stratemeyer 13
look Into the doings of certain em
ployes outside of olllco hours. Strate
meyer considered that he was request
ed to spy on members of the force In
their private affairs. This he did not
class as In his line of duty as a United
States officer or within the proper
provinco of a self-respecting man. 1113
reply to Stackablc was couched In posi
Stratemeyer Is one of the oldest em
ployes of tho custom houso and has al
ways had a high standing lu the busi
ness community for absoluto trustwor
thiness and courteous dealings. Ho was
at one time offered the position of
deputy collector. Ills superiors believed
him to bo fUlly capable of tilling tho
position. Strntemeycr's modesty alone
kept him out of It. Ho has n rcpul.t
Hon for doing his work In strict ac
cordance to orders nnd minding hlu
own business. Friends of both Stack
nblo and Stratemeyer have long bein
at loss to know tho reason for the lack
of harmony that has existed between
tho two men.
For some time past murmurs have
como from tho Custom House of tliw
Collector giving his employes orders,
and then forgetting that they wero giv
en.. Certain It Is that there has been
less good will oxlstlng between the Col
lector nnd members of his forco during
Mr. Stackablo's administration than
under his predecessors.
Both Mr. Stackablo and Mr. Strath
meyer refused to be Interviewed on tho
subject this morning. Tho collector

R.&L, Co. Land Question.
There wsb a long session of the Oov
ncrnor's council this morning, severnl
matters of Importance being dlscusieJ
nt length. Every member was present.
The question of the exchange of land
between the O. It. & L. Co. and the gov
ernment which has Jiccn hanging Are
for such a long time, was brought up
for consideration, tile folloniug berrig
present to represent the railroad (com
pany: I). F. Dillingham, F. Denlson. F.
M. HatcJE.rE. Paxton anij C. Kluc
gel. tya question was discussed at
somo. .length and the agreement was
taken back and handed to F. M. Hatch
for correction 7
Tho land In question. Is that strip
upon which now stands what Is known
as the railroad wharf and the represen
tatives of the corporation mentioned
were present td find out If the govern
ment could or would make the ex
change, how such exchange could bo
made and If It should be to an outside
party as a trustee or to the railroad
company direct. Tho matter will be
brought up again soon.
Governor Dolo brought up the propo
sition made some time ago of building
a government dispensary on tho lints
already proposed. Action was defer
red, pending the report of tho Treasur
er cm the estimate of expenses for the
coming year. If thero Is money enougti
expected nnd the estimate Is not too
great, the dispensary will be built.
Mr. E. P. Dolo stntcd that he hid
written to N. C. Wllfong of Hllo in
structing him that there was nothing In
tho laws of the Territory which would
prevent him from accepting the posi
tion of Deputy United States Mnrshil
while Bervlng under the local govern
ment as a tax assessor. If thero was
anything contrary thereto, ho would
probably be,adlsed of the samo by the
United States Government through the
Marshal's ofllce here, upon his accept
ance of the position.
Mr. Dole further reported on tho
matter which was brought up by a
letter from Sheriff Andrews of Ha
waii a short time ago. The question
asked was If h (Andrews) could re
turn tho money which had been paid
n for merchandise licenses as long as
it had not been turned Into the Treas
ury. Tho opinion of tho meeting was that
It could bo returned. Tho case was to
come up soon In the Supremo Court for
an opinion. If found valid, tho dato of
the licenses would be from the expira
tion of the last license.
Mr. McCandless reported that saivl
had shifted under and about tho chan
nel wharf so that now, thero was u
depth of only 19 feet of water. Mr. Me
Cnndlcss stated that ho had told H.
Hackfcld & Co.. Ltd., that if they ad
vanced the money necessary for dredg
ing, ho would lerommcnd to tho'Legla
laturo that they be reimbursed.
Police Reserve is
Tho police reserve, consisting of
fifty natives, will be drilled by Captain
Parker at tho police station tonight,
Tho men are being drilled regularly
nnd aro now In lino form. Thero Is no
doubt whatover that, If allowed to gj
Into tho competitive drill of tho mili
tary companies in January, they would
mako an excellent showing.
This police reserve was formed In
tho neighborhood of four months agJ
and Is proving, as Captain Parker
thought it would, a valuable adjunct
to tho police force. On several occa
sions of late, notably during tho trou
bio on the Pacific Mall wharf yesU--day
forenoon, members of this body of
stalwart natives, have given valuable
neslstanco to tho police. It was George
Kawal, ono of tho members of tho re
servo, who saved Captain Fox from a
mnro severe drubbing thnn ho got.
Fifty wnVtho limit set by Captain
Parker, hut applications for member
ship have been coming In so that, In
c.iso of need, It would bo an easy nnt
ter to mustor n force of a hundred men.
All tho members of the leservo are
haid working men employed by vailous
business houses of the city. Twenty
are cmplojes of II, lUckteln ft Oi,
Ltd., V.tty man's residence Is known;
so that. In case the services of the re
serve are needed, no lime need bo
wasted In finding the members.
Although the men hae all been
sworn In, they havo not been given
badges. This will be a matter for fu
ture consideration by High Sherllf
Supt. Chas. Clark
Makes an Objection
The article in the Kepubllcan th'
morning In which It Is stated that Kn
111:1 camp Is getting, to Ve .the resort
of all the old opium bums and efftcl'n
thieves In town has roused the Ire of
Superintendent Charles Clark as It cer
tainly should. Mr. Clark called In at
the Bulletin omce this morning nnJ
made the following statement to a
"What the Republican says Is abso
lutely untrue and their Information,
wherever It came from. Is certainly
most faulty. We have In the neighbor
hood of 200 .natives, Chinese and Ja
panese In the camp but every Blngle
person Is paying his rent.
"It la, true that there are In the
neighborhood of fifty Chinese opium
fiends In the camp but they have been
In the place slnco the time of the
great Arc of January 20 nnd when th
plague was oter, the Chinese Denevo
lent Society started In to pay the rent
of these men and has continued to do
this up to the present time. .
"Now' then, ns to bums and chlckPii
thieves, j Wo arc not harboring such
people In the camp. Thero may be
chicken stealing nnd bumming going
on but that is something we kno'V
nothing of. The camp Is run on strict
principles and I invite any and all mis
informed newspaper men to visit tho
camp at any time during the day or
night. 1 I think I can show them that
the place Is conducted In a proper man
ner. "There Is too much of this kind of
talk going on. I really do not bellevo
that the man who wrote up the story
for tho Republican wan ever anywhere
near the camp. What ho wrote was
either-Imagined or given to -him "by
some Irresponsible party.' '
