To Be Found on Ka-
WILL' CAMTTON VERY
- EXTENSIVE BUSINESS
Tweniy-flre Cottages, Forty Stores
"lid a Hundred Rooms in
i ' Laundry. .'
On Monday, the 10th day of this
rdonth, Honolulu will lee In full oper
ntlonvln IU mldit, a sanitary' (team
laundry1 built and fitted up according
to the latest and moat approved meth
od and no longer will the people have
to trust to'the Chinese laundry (or the
washing of their clothes. This will
undoubtedly bo a welcome piece of
news to the people who for years
have had their clothes sprinkled out of
the mouths of Chinamen and starched
with foul smelling starch.
The Sanitary Steam Laundry Co. 'was
floftted during the time of the recent
vlittatlon of plague by I. It. Burns,
the Insurance man. Business men saw
that the prospectus was an excellent
one and It was not, long before the
$75,000 at which the proposed business
was capitalised, was subscribed for.
A lot facing on Kawalahao lane and
Queen street and covering about two
n'nrti one-half acres was secured at a
moderate sum per annum and filling In
operalons were begun at once. It cost
In the neighborhood of 14000 to do
this paty of, the work but It was worth
nery cent of the money for the loca
tion )n now one of tin best In theclty.-
Whenthe promoter figured on the
proposition ho was not content to con
fine the operations to the steam laun
dry and so he conceived the scheme
ot building cottages ahd stores on the
grounds. These latter are almost
finished and the same may be said of
the laundry Itself. Mr. Burns took, a
reporter ot the Bulletin to the laundry
yesterday afternoon and showed htm
all aver the buildings.
The laundry Is a 'building 75 by 250
feet, consisting of two stories, the-lower
of which will lie used exclusively
for the laundry business The upper
floor la'.orie, large room and will be
lined for the dyeing anil 'cleaning
branch of the business which will be
started up some time after the latin
' At the,- tnauka Ewa corner of the
funding Is- tho general office and di
rectly (back of Jt Is the private office1,
outside OT the latter Is a short hallway
opening Into the laundry proper and
opposite Is .the lavatory'. vOn the other
side of this Is the distributing room.
In the laundry proper a large' force, of
raeniwaa busy setting up the 'great
number of pieces of machinery neces
sary to a well equipped laundry. It
was here that the reporter was Intro
duced to F. J. Hart, the laundry expert
sent out by the Troy laundry people- of
New York, Chicago and noston, whs
furnished all the, machinery. Together
with him came a force ot white labor
that will take their places at the ma
chines at the proper time.
Mr. Hart was kind enough toshow
the reporter the various machines) The
first Inspected are four large washing
disinfecting machines with perforated
metal revolving cylinders. It was ex
plained that these, are a great Improve
ment over Jme old wooden affairs In
that they are proof against disease

In a very few days now an electric
dynamo will be Installed In the laiinl-

lights and the requisite power tor
washing and Ironing. The boiler has
already been Installed.
The stables In connection with tho
laundry. Will be built In th enear fu
ture at a place directly makal of tho
laundry. Near this Is an artesian wll.
recently bored, which flows at the
rate of 2,000,000 gallons a day and
which has a thirty toot pressure,
Tho reporter next went to the row
of twenty-five cottages on the makal
side of the lot and found there the" very
best of living places for people of
moderate means. There are five, rooms
In each of these cottages and, Include.!
In the rent ot 120 a month will be elec
tric lights and hot and cold wato.
Each cottage Is furnished with a porce
lain bath tub and a patent water closet
They are very neat buildings all open
ing out upon wide streets and easily
accessible. There Is no reason what
ever why every one ot these cottagea
ahould not be occupied within 'a
montha's time. In fact, a great many
have already been spoken for.
Makal ot these and facing directly on
Queen street Is .a long two-story build
ing, the lower part of which Is to bj
used entirely tor stores. There are
forty ot these and 'they are as good as
any ot the kind In the city. They nto
high above the ground, well ventllateJ
and nicely fitted up. On the upper
floor are a hundred rooms and back of
each section of these ts a patent' water
closet and bath room combined. There
Is a beautiful outlook Howard tVe
-mountains and a cool breeie la always
to bo had. Jheie icons "and rooms,
like the cottages, will be fitted Up With
electric lights.' , ' V
The laundry company will have an
office In the busy part of the town
where people may take their clothes.
This place will be at lid Hotel street In
the old Elite building.

WIFE NUMBER ONE
OF QUOK LEONi
It Was on Her Account that Bishop
Willis Objected to Her Husband's
Baptism by Rev. A.
Mackintosh. ' ,
Quok I.eong, who is trying to get his
wife admitted to the Territory of Ha
waii, sometime ago caused trouble
ra, the Episcopal diocese ot Hawaii. It
Is his helpmeet from China, Ylm Chun
Shal, who Is ho subject of the writ of
habeas corpus pending before the Unit
ed States District Court, upon which
Judge Estce yesterday Informed coun
sel ot his doubt as to -Jurisdiction.
Some time ago Rev Alex. Mack
intosh, pastor of the Second congre
gation of St. Andrew's cathedral, bap
tized Quok Leong Into tho Christian
faith. Bishop ,Wlllls took Mr. Mack
intosh severely to task for admitting
tho candladto because, according to tho
Bishop's Information, he had a wife In
China besides tho ono he owned here.
Since that ecclesiastical episode tho
native Hawaiian wife of Quok Leon,?
has died, and cro this he would hat a
had her place filled by tho other one
from China were It not for the cruel
legal obstacles thrown In the way by
8choo1 Book Sterilization.
A gentleman who had read an arti
cle In one of the local papers regard
ing the sterilizing of public library
books, to prevent the danger of con
veyance ot Infectious disease there
from, suggested to a Bulletin reporter
that trie "precaution would be a gout
ono regarding books UBed In the
schools. He said there had been cases
ot typhoid fever occurring lately among
tho pupils of Oahu, College, tho caui-o
of which would seem mjsterlous from
the fact that the institution authori
ties wero exceedingly careful In sani
tary precautions. Possibly, this gen
tleman thought, the Infection might
havo come from books or school Im
plements. With a Bclenco laboratory,
Oahu might comblno Instruction with
disease prevention In sterilization of
amies used by the pupils.

Bulletin Correspondent Writes of Im
portant Hatters-How Our Dele
gate is Received in Wash
Washington, D. C, Dec. 17. Atten
tion was centered upon Hawaiian af
fairs last week by the admission ,ot
Robert W, Wilcox, as delegate f rom.th'i
Territory to the 56th Congress.
Affidavits containing statements and
representations concerning the legal,
status of the recent election were filed
with the House several days prior to
Delegate Wilcox's arrival and were
filed with the Committee en Privileges
and Eelectlons. Here, It Is believed,
they will remain. There Is at this time,
apparently no disposition to interfere
with Wilcox ?nd his claim to his seat
will probably remain uncontested. Rep
resentative Mondell of Wyoming, by
Whom the protesting papers were filed,
says that his action was only taken
at ibe request of citizens of the Terri
tory, and he has no disposition to take
further steps In the matter.
Mr, Geo. D. Oear'ot Honolulu, who
reached here Saturday, says in an In
terview in the "Washington Post :"Mr.
Wilcox's election waa entirely Illegal.
There Is no law ot the Islands under
which such an election could be hell.
Wilcox does not represent the Ameri
can people in Hawaii. The natives did
not know what, they weredolpg when
tbey voted for hint, and he and his fol
lowers so misrepresented the situation
that his election. In my opinion, will
be declared Invalid. The law und.'r
which the election was held Is an oil
law ot the Hawaiian Republic, which
authorizes the election of a Legislature
and It was at this election that Wllcm
was elected. The simple fact that it
was Illegal ought to be a clinching Ar
gument against his retention ot hU
sent In Congress."
Whatever may be the merits or do.
merits ot the controversy, or of Wil
cox's fitness to represent Hawaii 'n
Congress, his election Is looked upon
as one of the results ot equal suffrage
extended to Hawaii afld the disposition
Is to abide by the results. If Wilcox
does not prove to be a capable an.t
useful delegate the people of the Ter
ritory have It In their hands to send h
better man at the next election, and
meanwhile get along the best way pos
sible. Under our election1 system sev
eral States ot the' Union are without
complete representation In the Senate,
and some States have 'representatives
in the House who accomplish little or
nothing for their constituencies, and
they suffer In consequence. Hawaii
will not fare as badly as these States.
The general Intereat of the United
States Is In a measure centered upon
Hawaii, and, It Wilcox Is found defi
cient, there are many members ot Con
gress who will supply the deficiency
and take a special Interest In securing
desired benefits for Hawaii.
Pending Mr. Wilcox's arrival sev
eral bills wero Introduced by request
by Mr. Barham ot California to provide
funds for Hawaiian Improvements. One
was for purchase ot a site ot a public
building la the city of Honolulu, the
cost not to exceed $129,000. Another,
to establish lighthouses at Makapu
Point, Oahu; Kahulul, Maul; Pun.i,
Hawaii: Kollua. Hawaii, and appro -
prlatlng $50,000 for their construction,
Speaking of these bills. Delegate Wil
cox said today that he would take hold
and ascertain what could be done to
wards securing their passage. He fears,
however, that little can be done at the
short session In this direction.
"What we want," he said, "Is a defl -
nlte plan outlined for federal Improve-
ments. such as buildings, docks, harbar
Improvements, and all such things In

J. A, llllKCICONS,
The Washington Postal December 14
The first man living oitilde the lim
its of the United State proper to take
his seat In the America Congress ap
peared before the bar of the House
yesterday, a few minutes after noon,
and assumed the oath of office as a
Delegate from Hawaii, His name Is
Hober. W. Wilcox. He has a dark
skin, straight hair, which Is now
slightly gray, an Intelligent face and
a kindly manner. His speech Is easier
when he attempts tho tongue of tho
Kanakas, but his English Is readily
understood. He. was preceded one day
by Senor F. tiageisU, Commissioner
from Porto Rico, but 6nor DageU'l
does not come In'the capacity ot Dels
gate, and will have no seat on tho
floor, nor the right W address th
House. , " j
Fresh from a long rlllroad Journey
across the continent, having arrived
yesterday morning at 9 o'clock with bU
wife and two children '.and his secre
tary, David kalauokalaal, Jr., a young
Hawaiian, whose father Is a prominent
man In the Islands and has visited
Washington. Mr. Wllcoat proceeded to
the Capitol as soon asf'heTiad estab
lished himself comfortably.' ijjb, If (,!
mandte. Delegate Pedro Perca of New
Mexico, a representative of one ot the
oldest Spanish families, escorted Mr.
Wilcox in front of the Speaker's deK
where the oath ot office was adminis
tered. Mr. Wilcox was In Washington
nearly all of last winter, where Jie be
came acquainted with many Sonaturs
and members. After he had taken the
oath many members crowded around
him to extend congratulations.
The Hawaiian carries his political
honors lightly. He conversed with
numerous people on topics relating to
the Islands and went about the Capitol,
accompanied by' Mb secretary, even to
the restaurant, where he quaffed some
of the liquid mixtures. He told Inquir
ers that he was no longer a royalist,
and, lit relation t.,iuln statements
ot late that his marriage had disquali
fied him from holding office, explained
that bis first marriage to an Italltn
had been annulled by the Pope before
ho had married bis present wife, wno
was an Hawaiian princess. He had
also been Informed that the Italian
courts had given his first wife a decree
"I came to Washington," said Mr.
Wilcox, "by way of New Orleans, that
we might not encounter the cold
weather of the more northern latitude!.
Thero was some delay In getting my
certificate, because of Inability to se
cure the official returns from certain
localities. We pressed urgently for
the certlfica te, and finally cvrtalan of
the ballot boxes, that had been sent In.
wero opened and the official declaratloi
of the vote was found there. Then luy
certificate was Issued to me. The par-,
ty differences that had divided the
people disappeared after that, and I
was escorted to the steamer with n
band of music and by a gathering of
citizens ot all parties."
"What measure will you urge on
Congress this winter?"
"The session Is s brief said Mr.
Wilcox, "that I suppose It will be use
less to try to do much. We must be
chiefly content, I suppose, to live In
Washington till the' session Is over,
I should like to see an act passed at
this-session to lay a cable from Ssn
Francisco to Honolulu. I think Pearl
Harbor should be Improved, and I wih
Congress would appropriate some mon
ey for that at this session.
"There have bon suggestions tho
you might urge a' pension for the ox
Queen," was remarked.
"I can talk about that better later,"
he replied. "I wbh told last winter by
Borao Senators that they thought n
' pension would be Just to tho ex-Quecu,
but they did not want to give It to her
as long as she was surrounded by cer
, tain politicians."
When the protest of n few Hawa
iian against bis being a Delegate
were mentioned, Mr. Wilcox said tho
I protest would amount to nothing, and
' snapped his fingers to emphasize his
statement. "The protest originated
with A. B. Loebcnsteln ot Hllo," said
he. "who ran for the Territorial Sen
, working against me, and seeking to
prevent my being a Delegate, but I un
lerstand that Mr, Gear Is doing nothing
of tho kind, but Is seeking an nppoln
went for himself of circuit Judge."
Mr. Wilcox sa)B ho has no present
Intention of addressing the House. He
Is far less exnlted than aro most men
on their election to the Hmiso, and
showed a genuine pleasure )rsterilay
In meeting again thoHO ho had known
last winter, lie said ho had mado two
complete trips about the Inlands In his
campaign for olwtlon, and tliut h'l

changes In the Hawaiian law, IncluJ-
log an amendment whereby the Hawa

of the Republican party was held laet
night for the purpose of hearing the
report of the suh-commlttce.. After n
long wait, It waa found that seventeen

George Davis of the sub-committee on

of his commiteo to draft a charter that
would Include as much taxable proper
ty as possible but that to take In the
whole of the Island of Oahu would not
be practicable a the area exceeedel
that of the city of London. A. V, Gear
ot the same committee reported that
tho committee would .need between
$500 and 11200 for the hire of a typ-
writer, clerks, etc.
NOTES FROM KOOLAU SIDE
The ,Chlneseborlng ""for--water at
Kitaloa have 1 met with, failure. They
struck-water In plenty, but It was salt.
It is a pity, as their Intention was to
have brought another hundred acrea uf
iana into rice cultivation,
J, P. .Mendonca Is happy on accouut
ot the luxuriant aspect of his pastures
caused by the recent abundant rain.
A gentleman from Kaneohe reports
the Fall road on the' Koolau side as
getting Into a disgraceful condition.
The new Kallua road Is the same way
and will continue to be far Into tho
twentieth century, because, as the In
formant says, It never ought to have
been made In Its present location. It
should have gone mauka.
Murder Poeo Has
Pueo, the native who. on the night of
the night of August 6th of last year
went Into a place In Dowsett lane, Ka
palama. and Naomi Kaalhue, ,hls mis
tress, outside, cut her up In such a hor
rible manner that she died of her
wounds soon after, died at the Hos
pital for Incurables this morning. Th)
man was removed from Oahu Jail on
Christmas day on account of his se
rious condition. He was nearly dead
from the ravages of consumption.
It will be remembered that after
Pueo murdered his mistress, he at
tempted to commit suicide and cut
himself badly. He was taken to tho
hospital and later removed to Oah i
Jail. He recovered sufficiently to h
taken before the District Magistrate.
Pueo was charged with murder In tha
first degree and he was committed to
tho Circuit Court for trial.
