Maui, Sept 5th. The Haiku garden
party which occurred during the
evening of August 30th, on the grounds
of H. P. Baldwin, was a most brilliant
and successful event. Surrounding
a pretty dell were booths of various
colors and designs, huge Japanese
umbrellas with tables, and
the quaintest little stage imaginable
with its green curtain stretched between
two royal palms. A myriad of
colored lights twinkling here and
there amid the foliage, shed soft lustre
upon the scene. A large audience of
natives and foreigners appreciated a
pleasing program which consisted of
vocal and instrumental music and an
exhibition of wax works. C. H.
Dickey acted the part of the lecturer,
Dickens, showing to the public, wax
models of some ot the most famous
characters in his novels. F. E. At-water
merits special mention for his
assumption of the character of the
immortal Pickwick and Miss Richards'
negro melodies to the accompaniment
of the banjo, were much applauded.
Misses Millie Beckwith and Hattie
Watson presided at the candy and
lemonade tables, Misses King and
Minnie Bddwinat the flower stand,
Misses Aiken and May Baldwin at
the souvenir booth, Mrs. Dickey dispensed
coffee and sandwiches, and
Mrs. H. G. Alexander had charge of
the post office most conspicuous with
Its red, white and blue bunting. One
hundred and forty-five dollars.a much
larger sum than was anticipated, was
raised for the benefit of native Sunday-schools
and other chanties. The
Ladies' Aid Society is to be congratulated
on the success of their entertainment.
On Sunday afternoon, August 25tb,
a mass meeting of prominent citizens
of Wailuku and Makawao districts
was held at Wailuku court house to
consider ways and means against a
possible cholera epidemic. After
sundry speeches by Drs. Aiken,
and Raymond the following
sanitary committee was chosen by
the fifty or sixty gentlemen present:
Dr. Armitage and Messrs. Chilling-worth,
Frlel, Carter and Campbell for
Wailuku; Messrs. Maynard and C.
B. Miles forKahului; Dr. Raymond
and Messrs. D. Center and George
Rudolph for Spreckelsville; and Dr.
P.J.Aiken and Messrs. H. P Baldwin,
James Anderson, C. H. Dickey
and W. H. King for Makawao. L.

to look out for the Kula sectiOD. S.
F. Cbillingworth presided at the
meetiDg which continued from 3:30 to
5:30 p. m.
During Saturday night, August
2itb, between S and 9 o'clock Henry
Iwiena, a Wailuku policeman, shot
and killed a Chinaman named Ah
Quai at Camp 3, Spreckelsville. Several
days previously Ah Quai had
been a witness in an opium-in-pos-session
case which was tried in Wailuku.
Deputy Sheriff Carter directly
after the trial swore out a warrant
against Ah Quai for perjury, but before
the paper could be served the
Chinaman escaped and bid in the
cane for four or five days. It was
while serving the warraut during the
night of the 24th that Iwiena shot Ah
Quai who was again trying to escape.
Iwiena has waived examination and
has been committed for trial.
During the past week or more, people

remarked. Market street leads

Correspondent Severely Critizes
Action of Hilo People.
Mr. Editor : The action of the
Deputy Sheriff and people of Hilo,
in refusing to allow a party of tourists
to visit the volcano, after they
had landed at Punaluu, was, to say
the least, very arbitrary. The
facts are these : The tourists, who
came all the way from Boston and
the Atlantic States, arrived in the
Australia" from San Francisco.
They were told here that they
could go to the volcano, provided
they remained on the Australia
and did not land in Honolulu.
From the Australia they were
transferred to the W. G. Hall, and
left here with a clear bill of health,
having strictly conformed to all
the requirements of the local authorities.
They were to land at
Punaluu, thence to the volcano,
and back to the steamer and Honolulu.
They had not been exposed
to the epidemic here in any way
whatever, nor could their visit to
the volcano under any possibility
have carried the contagion. They
did land at Punaluu, but by orders
of the Deputy Sheriff were driven
on board again like a drove of
sheep, under threats of the bayonet.
The treatment that these tourists
have received from the Deputy
Sheriff and people of Hilo can be
termed pothing le3 than a shame
and an outrage, such as might be
expected from Hottentots or
but such as no one could have
dreamed of receiving from Hawaiians,
who are reputed to be civilized
and anxious to be annexed
to a civilized republic. If persisted
in, this course will Btop all travel
to the volcano or in fact to Hawaii.
The doors of the volcano hotel may
now be closed and bolted, the manager
dismissed, and a notice posted
on tbe gate, "No Tourists Allowed
Here By Order of the Hilo
People !" and none will come.
If there be no other way to 6top
these crazy, childish freaks, let the
captains of steamers be instructed
by their owners not to deliver
mails, nor papers nor freight of any
kind whatever, until permission is
given to any passengers who are
allowed by the Board of Health of
Honolulu to leave with clean passports,
to land at their destination.
The mails are no more free from
contagion than such passengers
are. Stop 'all the mails, and all
supplies, food and everything else,
until passengers free from contagion
are allowed to land ! "It's a
poor rule that will not work both

Large Increase of Stock in tbe
Beet Sugar mnd UongkoDE Sugar Having
Their Effect Upon the Importation
of Other Foreign Sugar.
The demand for refined is fair
and the importations of Hongkong
refined continue in considerable
quantities, Eay Williams, Dimond
& Co., in their latest circular. The
importation of this sugar, together
with the increasing production of
beet sugar in this state are already
having their effect upon
the importations of other foreign
sugars, and had the bounty, according
to the McKinley bill, been
continued, this coast, after a short
period, would have supplied
enough sugar for consumption
here, and would doubtless havo
been an exporter of sugars.
The increased firmness previously
reported could not be maintained,
there being sufficient rain
on the continent to favorably influence
the weight of the root3 -and
this has brought out speculative
sellers and resulted in a decline of
price3. Our latest mail advices
from Germany of recent dates state
that prices are not expected to go
much higher, particularly for the
present. It must be borne in
mind that even with the shortage
in crops that has been reported at
various times, there still remains
at latest uneven dates to August
loth, about 805,000 tons more
stock in all the principal countries
than last year. This must be entirely
wiped out before there will
be any actual scarcity of sugar in
the world. Latest reports from
Java received here recently, state
that out of a crop of about 500,000
tons about 200,000 tons have already
been sold there, a great part
of which will find its way to
Cuba Crop. Condition of affairs,
as near as we can learn, continue
about the same as previously advised,
and it is impossible at this
time to state anything accurately
concerning the prospects of the next
crop, as it is entirely uncertain.
Total stocks of sugar at four ports
TJ. S., Aug. 15th, 279,593 tons
against 372,669 tons last year.
Total stocks at six principal ports

the principal countries, 1,770,293
tons against 965,187 tons at same
time last 'year. Afloats to the
United States from all countries at

MINISTER IRWIN MAKES DENIAL
Japan Has no Designs on the
Hon. R. W. Irwin, Hawaiian
Minister to Japan, was recently
interviewed by Colonel Cockerell
for the New York Herald, on the
alleged scheme on the part of
Japan to absorb the -Hawaiian Islands.
"This style of talk is pure nonsense,"
said Minister Irwin. "Some
sincere friends of the Hawaiian
Government talk in this way in
order to hurry action in the United
States, and many insincere people
indulge in it. Japan truly has no
designs upon Hawaii. If she ever
had she would have shown her
hand when President Cleveland
proposed to restore the Queen. She
had two at Honolulu at
the time, and' her action could
have been made decisive. There
are 25,000 Japanese in Hawaii
now. The question of suffrage
there was settled when the constitution
was adopted. Anybody
may become a citizen and voter by
becoming naturalized and renouncing
his allegiance to his native
country. The Japanese who are in
Hawaii are contract laborers.
They intend to return to Japan
when their terms of service expire.
"As Boon as Formosa is opened
up the Japanese will cease going
to Hawaii. Formosa will be the
great field for Japanese labor, for
there the men can secure permanent
homes and be all the while
under their-own flag. The Japanese
do not care to alienate themselves.
Formosa will be developed
as a great sugar producing island.
Japan will do the refining, and this
eugar will compete with the Hawaiian
product in the United States.
As to Japan having designs upon
Hawaii it is absolutely unfounded,
as I know."

A conductor on the O. R. & L.
railroad went to Waianae yesterday
for the purpose of visiting with hiB
family. Thinking nothing of the
possibility of being ejected from
the place, ho walked boldly to his
home. He was called upon later
by a delegation and with his family
was despatched post haste to Honolulu,
without being given time even
to offer an argument. The fear of
cholera has evidently taken firm
hold of the people of Waianae as it
has of those in other country places.

WORK OF RELIEF SOCIETY.
If any one not fully acquainted with
the work of tbe Hawaiian Relief Committee
could have spent a few moments
at their depot watching the
expression of thankfulness on the
faces ot the poor natives and heard
them shower blessings upon those
who were dealing out most liberally
to them food with which to sustain
their families and themselves, they
would have immediately set themselves
to do all in their power to assist
in the charitable undertaking instead
of offering doubtful compliments,
samples of which have been
heard in tbe last day or so.
The Hawaiian Relief Society Is
struggling bravely and buffeting the
waves of discouragement which occasionally
appear, with a vigor born not
only of interest in behalf of the Hawaiians
but a genuine spirit of crowning
with success the efforts which
have been started.
All through the hot hours of the
day have the ladles of the Relief Committee
done the work of preparing
and dealing out rations to the needy
Hawaiians. In many cases undoubtedly
they have been imposed upon.
They have realized that fact and have
not been blindly treated to a game of
"bluff." They do not intend that this
little act shall continue, however, for
after a thorough census of the native
population of tho city and suburbs is
taken, they intend to ascertain the
true state of affairs in every home.
Each name will be recorded and when
a Mr. Ioane Lapuale comes up to the
window with an expression on his
face akin to that of hunger, but savoring
more of rascality, be will be
"looked up" immediately. If he Is
found to be in good circumstances,
neither tears nor food will be wasted.
The Relief Committee has not been
able to get everything into perfect
working order yet on account of the
complication of matters in Honolulu,
present perhaps in no other place.
Advice is cheerfully and thankfully
received from those who have a genuine
interest in the work which is being

Mr. Editor: The Women's Hawaiian
Belief Society waa organized
Friday at 3 p. m., in the office of Mrs.
E. M. Kakuina, and the following
officers unanimously elected: President,
Mrs. S. C. Allen; vice-president,
Mrs.E. Kekaanlau Pratt; treasurer,
Mrs. Fred Macfarlane; secretary, Mrs.
Emma M. Nakuinn; directors, Mrs.
James Campbell, Mrs. Geo. C. Beck-ley
and Mrs. A. A. Haalelea.
After some discussion on business,
the ladles went by invitation to tho
Chamber of Commerce and there met
J. O. Carter, George Fairchild and
Fred Macfarlane, who had been actively
engaged in securing money to
be expended for charitable purposes.
Said money was placed at the disposal
of the society.
Mr. Carter made some remarks of a
business nature that were listened to
very attentively as he proceeded to
explain the working of a system of
checks or tickets, etc. Mr. Carter further
volunteered his services to aid in
the practical working ot said system.
It Was voted that his services be mast
The present plans cf the society are
to furnish disinfected poi to distressed
ones today, for there is an immedlato
and urgent demand for that necessity
of Hawaiian diet. It has been
urged by the natives that tho cutting
off of their regular diet has brought
on bowel complaints, weakened them,
and made them easy prey for cholera.
It is the intention of the society to
give tea or coffee and bread In tho
morning-, a dinner of poi and stewed
meats with tea at dinner, and tea or
cofTeo and bread again for supper. It
is hoped that the work of setting fireplace,
boiler, tanks, etc., will bo so fat
advanced by this evening as to enable
the committee to carry out this program
In full tomorrow. For today
only poi and stew will be delivered to
tbe distressed ooes.
There were no facilities on the premises
offered, No. 15 Bethel street, for
cooking, poi making, rebolling, etc.,
and the fadles are necessarily very
much hampered by the lack of it. A
shed is being put up and all necessary
conveniences. Allen Herbert besides
placing tbe building at tbe disposal of.
the association very generously takes
charge ot the cooking department,
and with his well known skill and
experience, well prepared and wholesome
food is most certainly assured.
It is intended to take all poi, though
cleanly made and prepared with
boiled water, put it in small bags
and plunge them into boiling water,
keeping it in "for two hours,
when tbe bag will be cooled and then
properly thinned to eating consistency
with cooled, boiled water and
strained. It is believed that this process
will effectually dispose of the
cholera germs as far as tbe poi furnished
is concerned. It is also the
Intention to have cold, boiled water
always on hand for any ono who may-want
a drink. Firewood in small
bundles will be furnished to tho
needy, that they may at least always
have boiled water and warmed drinks.
Tea, coffee and bread, if desired and
the applicant comes furnished with a
proper receptacle ami the meal tickets
of the association, will be allowed to
be taken home us well us tbe poi and
It ia possible that clothing in some
Instances will have to be given to
those who may in the necessary work
ot cleaning up by the Board of Health
have all their effects destroyed, but
that Is a matter for future consideration.
It is the intention to make daily
statements of tbe number relieved and
perhaps weekly statements of expenditures
as the officers of the society feel
that it is only due to the public who
have generously responded to tbe call
