Wilder Steamship Co. in
a Bran New De
partment CAPT. CAMPBELL HAS
Old Waterhouse Store on Queen Street
Has Been Secured for
Business To Open
Among tho passengers from San
Francisco In the Zcalandla yesterday
was Captain C. J. Campbell who left for
that place over a month ago for tho
purpose of buying supplies for ship
chandlery. Nothing previous to this
account has been said In the Honolulu
papers about tho mission of Captain
Campbell us It was not thought best to
glvo out anything until he had finished
his work and returned to Honolulu.
This Is what Captain Campbell had to
say this morning:
"While In San Francisco. I made ar
rangements for all necessary supplies
for tho ship chandlery which the Wil
der Steamship Co. decided to start at
meeting of tho company held not Ion,;
beforo my dcpaiture. I succeeded well
In the work entrusted to 1110 nnd. be
sides buying some of the supplies, made
nrrangcmcntH for n lot more In Cali
fornia and In the east. Some of tills 1
material I lirought with me In the
Zcalandla whllo a lot more will lie hepj
In tho Hclcne due from San Francisco
In four or live days and the S. N. Castle
which left that port shortly before
"Wo have already obtained tho old
Waterhouse storo on Queen street near
Nuuanii and will open up for business
as soon as wo can get things Into
shape. The two vessels which I liavo
mentioned will bring to Honolulu only
a small part of the supplies. Others
will follow and these will be laden
with supplies from the east. Probably
by the first day'of February we will be
ablo to furnish nearly all that Is ne
cessary but wp will not be fully up to
date until somo time In March.
"There Is no doubt that a big open
ing exists here for the ship chandlery
business as the shipping of the port Is
Increasing ovcry day and the end of
this Increase Is still n long way off.
The Wilder steamers will of course be
bencflltted by tho ship chandlery busi
ness of which I am to bo the manager,
as thoy will be able to get their sup
plies at a much lower rate than be
fore.' It Is understood on good niitliorl'v
that Horaco J. Craft, now In tho gen
eral nfllce of the Wilder Steamship Co ,
will bo detached from that place and
put In tho, ship chandlery offlco ns tho
head bookkeeper. No more competent
man than Captain Campbell could pos
sibly bo found In tho Islands for the
position of manager. Ho Is well ac
quainted with nil the men who vvllMio
likely to havo any business with "tho
chandlery and he knows Just what to
do when orders are urned In.
In tho Police Court this forenoon, the
following cases wero disposed of: Chan
wa, unlawful possession of opium, dis
charged; Yee Fan, same charge, nolln
pros'd; Aral, leaving his horso untied

FOR WHICH REASON
EQUITY SUIT FAILS
E. N. Holmes Fails to Prove a Part
nership with I. E. Ray in Land
at Olaa Supreme Court
A unanimous opinion of tho 8u
picme Court, written by Judgo Perry,
has been filed In tho equity suit of E.
N. Holmes vs. I. IS. Ray. Plalntllf
brought n bill In the Fourth Circuit
Court, claiming that on or about
March -0, 1899, by oral agreement, the
respondent and himself formed a part
nership concerning certain land situ
ato at Olaa, and that subsequently re
spondent' denied the making of any
such agreement. He prayed In effect
that respondent be compelled to make
an accounting of tho partnership and
that tho plaintiff bo adjudged owner of
an undivided one-half Interest In thn
land upon his paying one-half of surli
sum as tho court might find respondent
had expended In tho partnership.
Tho Circuit Judge dismissed tho bill,
and the plaintiff appealed. Now tho
Supremo Court affirms tho decree. Al
though It finds that both Holmes and
Ray evidently gavo their testimony In
good faith, they might well have mis
understood each other at the original
conversation out of which this suit
arose. In such case there was no mcot
Ing'of the minds of the parties and con
sequently no agreement. C. Crelghton
