HILO, Hawaii, Oct.. 14. The past
week has been a week of luaus socially.
'"The guests of several of the most
prominent families have been splendidly
entertained with feasting and .song.
Early last week Mr. and Mrs. N. C.
Willfong invited quite a party of their
friends to share the pleasures of a
native feast prepared most bounteously
for them. It was followed on Wednesday
afternoon by a regal repast at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. D.
Rose. Mesdames Monsarrat, Haalaloa
and Coney were the guests of honor
and were surrounded by some twenty
more friends of the Rose family. The
spread was strictly a la Hawaiiene and
included everything tempting to the
palate. After a liberal indulgence in
all the good things, the young folks
joined in singing songs.
Judge and Mrs. Hapai nest entertained
tlieir friends at a splendid
feast, and the Rev. S. L. Desha assembled
a coterie of friends around his
festive board later in the week. i
Yesterday there was a jolly gathering
at the home of Deputy Sheriff and
Mrs. Lyman on School street. Invitations
went out for a poi lunch, and
everyone bidden responded in person,
making the affair a most successful
The dinner given by George C. Beck-ley
of the Wilder Steamship Company
was of a slightly different order, and
attended only by members of the sterner
sex. Covers were laid for ten at the
Club Restaurant, and at the appointed
hour of 7 the following ten gentlemen
gathered around the festive board:
Messrs. Frank McStocker, E. D. Sparrow,
A. B. Richardson, J. R. Wilson,
E. E. Richards, Charles Campbell, William
Vanatta, C. Cawley, E. B.
and George C. Beckley. The excellent
menu included all the luxuries
obtainable in the Honolulu and Hilo
markets, and was most thoroughly
lelished by those so fortunate as to be
counted among Mr. Beckley's friends.
Several hours were most enjoyably
spent over the menu, toasts were responded
to by most of the members
and a general good time was had.
A change in the management of the 1
Hilo Hotel has been consummates
Today Jos. Yierra steps out and Mrs.
L. T. Grant takes charge. The new
management contemplates an entire
lenovation of the place, which will require
several days, so that the hotel
will not be open for business before
next Tuesday or Wednesday. Mrs.
Grant has obtained from Mr. Vierra a
lease on the cottages used in connection
with the hotel, and will turnish
the same, as also the main house, with
entirely new furnishings. The hotel is
to be run with a view to pleasing the
patrons by offering them the best the
market affords, and serving in the
most approved plan. Everything will
be done to invite the patronage of local,
transient and tourist trade.

AN INTERESTING STORW
3Ir. George W. Crow Relates a
Chapter in His Own Life.
From the Star, Harrisburg, Pa.
On the shores of the historic Susquehanna
river, near the grave of the
pioneer. John Harris, from whom
Harrisburg derived its name, and less
than a square away from the historic
Harris mansion, on South Front St.,
owned and occupied by the late Hon.
Simon Cameron, whose son, United
States Senator Don Cameron's name is
familiar to people of every country,
resides a well-known gentleman who
speaks in most glowing terms of the
efficacy of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
His name is George-W. Crow. His life
has been of a quiet character as far as
a public career is concerned, but always
engaged in. physical labor, thus breaking
down his system, causing much
suffering and an endless amount ofi
depression of spirits; He was nervous,
unable to sleep or obtain rest in any
position he might place himself. To
use his own language, which expresses
his condition exactly, he "was totally
played out and had Ho appetite. I was
in an awful condition." Such was the
suffering, Mr. Crow,, a man of sixty-three
years of age endured.
"I began using Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills," said he to a Star representative
who interviewed him. "I was told
about them by several persons and decided
to give them -a trial. This was
in April, 1892. I purchased a box and
began to feel much better. Indeed my
condition was much different and I
continued using them, until four boxes
had been taken. My appetite return
ed, I became fleshier and felt good
again. I could move about with ease
and atended to my duties. Then I quit
using the pills and life seemed to be
worth living again. This continued
for a year or more, and then I began
feel fagged out again. Sort of tired
and worn out I knew Williams' Pink
Pills would cure me, and so began using
them again. I took three boxes.
The same cure brought me much joy
and happiness as well as physical relief.
1 grew much stronger and felt
healthy. During July of 1S95, I took
about one and-a-half boxes for dyspepsia,
which began to trouble -me

some. I obtained relief at once."
f!?;.!5, an araent believer in

should be in every home. "I take
them every now and then to keep my
system in good trim. You see I am no
longer a young man and cannot stand
what you are supposed to be able to
endure," said Mr. Crow. He looks
much better than he did several years
ago, the reporter being well acquainted
with his ailments and condition, seeing
him almost every week and frequently
much oftener, during the past four
years. Before he began using the Pink
Pills he could scarcely walk, now he
does a man's work easily.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People are now given to the public as
an unfailing blood builder and. nerve
restorer, curing all forms of weakness
arising from a watery condition of the
blood or shattered nerves. They are

Coffee at .Mr. Irwin's Place Doing
Commissioner Marsden and. Professor
Koebele returned from a visit to
Heeia, Kaneohe and Maunawili yesterday.
While away they visited the plantations
and found nearly everywhere
that the Japanese beetle is less noticeable
than it was a year ago. The manager
of Heeia, Mr. Bull, is satisfied
that the efforts to exterminate the
pests will result satisfactorily. Com
missioner Marsden found a number
dead and others so impregnated -with
the fungus with which Prof. Koebele
is experimenting that they are unable
to get around.
Both the Commissioner and Prof.
Koebele were pleasantly entertained
at Maunawili by Mr. and Mrs.
Irwin where they went for the
purpose of investigating the coffee
which had been attacked by the beetle.
All of the Liberian coffee trees had
been pulled up, but the .other trees look
well. Mr. Irwin is cultivating a lot of
new land in which he will plant coffee
trees, and it is his intention to spare
no expense in experimenting with the
trees. Where his land is not sufficiently
sheltered from the wind shade trees
will be planted. Mr. Marsden will send
a number of boxes of young shade trees
to Mr. Irwin in a few days. 1
Washington Irving said, he supposed a certain hill was called
"Rattlesnake Hill" betause it abounded in butterflies. The
" rule of contrary " governs other names. Some bottles are, supposedly,
labeled " Sarsaparilla " because they are full of . . . well,
we don't know what they are full of, but we know it's not sarsaparilla;
except, perhaps, enough for a flavor. There's only one
make of sarsaparilla that can be relied on to be all it claims. It's
Ayer's. It has no secret to keep. Its formula is open to all
physicians. This formula was examined by the Medical Committee
at the World's Fair with the result that while every other
make of sarsaparilla was excluded from the Fair, Ayer's Sarsaparilla
was admitted and honored by awards. It was admitted because
it was the best sarsaparilla. It received the medal as the
best. No other sarsaparilla has been so tested or so honored.
Good motto for the family as well as the Fair: Admit the best,
exclude the rest.
Any doubt about it? Send for the " Curebook."
It kills doubts and cures doubters.

SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 2. C. A. Carpenter,
newspaper man and mine
ator, who has been in Alaska oft and
on for two years, returned to Seattle '
on the steamship Al Id this afternoon.
He reports that British mounted police
under command of Captain Constan- (
tine are levying fragrant tribute upon
American citizens and aggressively i
encroaching on United States territory ;
at Forty-Mile, on the Yukon. According
to his claim, which is also that of
the entire Yukon mining population,
the British line has been extended fifteen
miles southward upon Uncle
Sam's soil. Whether rightfully or
wrongfully, bluecoats in the name of j
her Majesty are collecting a $15 annum :
head tax or license from all miners I
within the disputed district.
In addition to this, Carpenter says
high duties must be paid upon all Am-1
erican goods going into the town of
Forty-Mile. The miners are very
much dissatisfied, Carpenter avers, j
over the action of the British author- j
ities in thus levying tribute, as well as
chagrined at the alleged apathy of the '
Federal Government in the premises, j
and he believes serious trouble sooner ,
or later between the British soldiery
and citizen miners is inevitable.
