There seems to Lc an Impression

3:30 o'clock this morning down In tho '
direction of Fauahl and River streets,
There were certain peculiar features
about the tire Monday morning which
would Indicate Incendiarism but these
were not clear enough to enable u
positive assertion to that effect.
As to the fire this morning, there Is
no question whatever. Someone start-1
ed It and laid plans which showed that
business was meant.
People living In the vicinity of tho
Ulver Mill Co. were awakened this
morning nt about the time mentioned
b- the scurrying of many feet out In
the street. Sleepy voices calcd out for
Information and someone shouted:
"Wo nre after thieves."
As a matter of fact, tho people were
bound over In tho direction of a de-
tacld building situated off tho upper

was In progress. The alarm had been
given by a Chinaman and the manager
of the mill and others were soon on tho
spot. Duckets were secured and, In a
few minutes, tho flames were, under
control. No alarm was sent in,
When the Are was out, tho manager
of the mill and others secured lanterns
and made an examination. Under tho
houso was found a lot, of cotton which
had been soaked wlm gasoline, the
container near by showing that In tho
neighborhood of a dollar's worth of
this bud been used by the person or
peisons doing the dastardly Job.
The whole thing had been well plan
ned and bad it not been for tho acci
dental discovery by the Chinaman ro-
ferred to, a most destructive fire would
soon have been In progress and many
lives might have been lost, since the
vicinity of the work of the incendiaries
Is very thickly populated. Tho hour of
the morning when everyone Is asleep
.was chosen by tho plotters, showing
that they did not desire any of their
plans to miscarry.

The Home Rule party Is not saying
very much Just now but from what ran
bo learned through the hard worker
of the party, some very hard blows are
being put In nnd confidence of success
In the fall seems to reign supreme
among the leaders.
The dflrst real hard work of the pres
ent campaign was the trip of Delegate
Wilcox nnd his faithful follow eis to
Kauai and on top of this comes the
work that Is now being put In right
here lit tho city. There is an absence
of the big meetings that were such A
feature two years ago at this time.
Quieter methods are being pursued.
It might not be suspected that tho
Home Rule party Is fully organized In
the matter of district committees ami
precinct clubs but such Is a fact. Moet-
Ings have been held from time to
time of late and now the party Is moie
fully organized than it ccr has been.
' There aro competent captains In jeach
' precinct nnd the rolls of the party aro
'going tho rounds very quickly and so
tho report comes, very satisfactorily,
The executive committee Is to meet
tomorrow for the purposo of making
further plans for tho fight At that
time, various questions will be brought
I up and settled and men will be sent to
the various Islands to acqualm
people under tne Home Rule banner
of the dictates of the central body.
In this connection it might be stated
that Delegate Wilcox intends to bo
present In the city at the time of the
tslt of tho Senato Commission. Ho
will very probably do ajlttlo work on
Maul previous to the arrival of tho dls-
( tlngulshcd visitors but the bulk of his

Prince Jonah Knlanlanaolo, the lead
er of the Hul Kuokoa, has also been
named and If he consents to run, the
Home Rule party will support him.
This comes as a postlve statement from
one of the Home Rule leaders and It
is undoubtedly the result of a state
