desire for amesement -which some-,
times overarfaelias one- The bill was
a good one.
An interesting nuptial event of Wednesday
evening was that which united
In marriage Miss JIary Eioise Castle
and Mr. Benjamin Lodge Marks. It
was a home weoulng and one of the
prettiest ever seen in this town. The
Rev. Henry Parker officiated and the
bride was attended by her maid of
honor. Miss Lilian Bacon of Montreal,
and the bridesmaids. Miss Beatrice
Castle, Miss Helen Lowrey, Miss Claire
WiJHams and Miss Edith Williams.
The best man was Mr. Andrew Adams.
As the bridal party advanced the
girte of Kamehameha School sang in
low tones the music of the Lohengrin
wedding march most sweetly. After
the ceremony Mendelssohn's wedding
march was magnificently played by
Mr. Wray Taylor.
Tae bride looked exceedingly pretty
In her simple but elegant gown of
white silk and white illusion, the bridal
veil leading a sweet enchantment to
u.e whole toilette. She carried a bouquet
of white carnations and maiden
hair. Miss Lilian Bacon's blonde bau
ty wae much enhanced by her bewitching
costume of white pina trimmed
with Who chiffon and ribbons. The
brJa earn aids looked exceedingly at
tractive. The bride was given into
the keeping of the groom by her uncle.
Mr. W. R. Castle. After the ceremony
a reception was given to the many
frlende. and dancing was the feature
of the evening. The presents wero
nnm0rous and costly. Little souvenir
boxes of wedding cake were given
each guest at departure.

One of the prettiest Hawaiian girlr
I "have ever seen was occupying a box
soat On Thursday evening at the Orpheum.
She was accompanied by Mr.
Cunha. With the native grace of the
Hawaiian she combined the animation
of the Latin race, which made hey
perfectly fascinating. In fact, I think
the pretty Hawaiian was the attraction
of the evening for the audience.
The "at home" given by Mr, and
Mrs. Robort Lowers on Friday evening
at Halekulani. to meet Miss Bag-ley,
was a most delightful affair. The
house was beautifully decorated with
palms, banana stalks and other plants.
Missf. Bagley was dressed in white
mousollne do sole, with a golden
about her waist. She made a pleasing
picture. The house looked very
brilliant with the many colored lights,
and the Ianai was particularly attractive,
banked with palm leaves and
many tropical plants. Th port
of thatched palm branches wis

beauty of the occasion. Dancing was
kept up until a late hour.

GRAVES OF AGNES SOREL.
Story of the Last Resting Place of
Charles Xll's Farovite.
Agnos Sorel. the favorite of Charles
VII.' of France, is buried In the Under
Prefecture of Loches. Originally she
tfns buried in the choir of a church,
there and her Inscription read: "Here
lies the Lady Agnes Sorel, in her life
time the beaut - of Roquesseries, Is
Eoudun and She was
' sympathetic with all people and gave
richly of her fortune to the Church
and poor. Departed this life on Feb.
9, In the year of salvation 1449. Pray
to'God for her soul. Amen." In spite
of this sanctifying epitaph, the monks
did not care for the tomb of the departed
beauty in the choir of their
church. They knew that Louis XI. despised
tho memory of his father's
. vorlte and had at one time as crown
prince expressed his feeling toward
the lady by boxing her ears. So they
petitioned the monarch to relieve them
of this inappropriate monument. The
King could be satirical at times and
i - consented to remove Ugrave for the
monks if they would Vive back all the
' .Twhefits they had enjoyed from Mme.
? Sorel's gifts. The fathers did not want
OllitSnionuuient any more, jbutjthey;
Tower co more inclined to return all tW
benefits the frail beauty had bestowed
on the Church. So they made no more
Louis XE, keeping- their
grave. Bat they man-
to as apartment of the Snlprefectnre
oftbe Department of
fcive years later the monument was
put np again In its present condition.
The sculptor who carved a medallion
of Agnes Sorel on her monnment
makes her a beautiful woman and all
the historians of her time united in
the acknowledgment of her good Iook3.
What her relations to Charles ML
were Js still an interesting opportunity
for speculation. Whether she was
really the noble Agnes and the good
fairy of the king, whom she Inspired to
win back France by conquest, or quite
a different sort of person, Is a question
that has been answered In various
ways. The poets Incline to the former
view and one monk, in the cathedral ai
Loches, wrote 1,000 Latin poems In
her honor. The cold historical view
of the subject Is less flattering to the
famous beauty. It holds mat the King
had freed the greater part of France
before he ever met Agnes Sorel, whose
scandalous extra vange almost emptied
the royal treasury.
One other noted woman is buried in
the convent church at the little Saxon
town of Zittau. This 13 Henrietta Sonn-
tag, the once famous singer whose sar
cophagus lies n a dark corner of the
nuns' little graveyard, ornamented on
ly with the pearly drops of water that
fall from the damp wall by the side of
the grave. So dark 13 this corner,
even In the daylight, that the sexton
who shows it to strangers must carry
a lamp and caution visitors to be careful
of the steps that descend to the little
mausoleum. Near her lies --he
body of her sister, who as Angela was
a member of the order and passed her
entire life in the convent. Her grave
is simpler than that in which the former
prima donna lies and Is marked
only with the wooden cross allotted to
all the members of the order. She possessed
the same beautiful voice that
helped her sister to conquer the world,
although she sang only for the sisters
and never came down from her place
in the choir of the little chapel where
she was screened from observance during
the services. She never sang before
any person from the outside world
except her sister. The one that had
enjoyed so much of the world's delights
promised her sister to come to
her in the convent when she had wearied
of the life that the pious Angela
had conquered in her youtli. Henrietta
did return to the convent, but it was
not until after her death, when she
found a resting place' in the little
churchyard of the convent.
HE IS NOT IN FAVOR OF
T. McCants Stewart Talks About the
Action of Republicans in Reference
to a City Charter.
From the Evening Bulletin.
Mr. T. McCants Stewart, a member
of the central committee of the repub
lican party, was seen today relative to
the meeting of republicans held last
Wednesday which has caused so much
talk of late:
There seems to be a mistaken idea
abroad that the action of Wednesday
last was that of the republican central
committee. It was nothing of the kind
as there was not a quorum of that
body present, Mr. Kennedy being absent
from the city. It was a meeting
of what members of the committe'e
were in town at the time, together
with the elected candidates of the republican
party from this island.
"The proposition on hand was the
framing of a charter for presentation
to the legislature for its consideration.
The matter of the invitation of the independent
party to cooperate in the
work of framing a charter was discussed
and it was finally decided to
recommend to the central committee
to refuse to cooperate with the independent
party and to pursue an inde
pendent line of action by appointing .1
committee of citizens to frame a charter.
"Mind you. the political complexion
of these citizens was not designated so
that men outside of the republican
party could be appointed on the committee
with perfect fitness.
"Now. of course, this recommendation
coming as it does from such prominent
men as those who were present
at the meeting just referred to, !s
bound to embarass the central committee
to some extent in case the
members should wish to do otnerwise
out the fact that the whole thing
came about in the manner it did.
would not seem to show that the feeling
of republicans as a whole is along
.he line of Independent action.
"As 1 have said before, the action
taken on Wednesday was not that
the central committee. This body will,
meet as soon as enough members are
present in the city, Messrs. Holstein.
Kepolkal. Gibb and Dr. Sandow have
been sent for. As soon as they arrive,
we will have a meeting and then
for once and all whether the action
of the republicans is to be Independent
"For myself, I may say that I am not
in favor of independent action and at
the meeting referred to, I stepped
down from the chair on this account
Mr. Robertson was another who held
out for cooperAve action and his
judgment on former momentous occa
sions, has proved to be sound. There
are many other prominent Republicans
such as Jas. H. Boyd and othe
who are not in favor of independent
Having finished talking on this sub
ject, Mr. Stewart was asked If he had
made a statement that Governor Dole
ought to resign for publication. In
reply he said:
"I have no hesitancy In stating that.
if the existing conditions are going to
continue and there is to be a Kilkenny
fight on between the majority in
the legislature (the independents). It
-would be better for Mr. Dole to re
sign as Governor. I "have made that
statement and I make it again."

comfort or the risk of damage. A vessel
Intended to round the Horn shoai.
e sunf cleatly staunch and sufficient!?
well equipped In respect to her rigging
as to endure blows "ol
severity without the slightest apprehension;
and the master should always
be on the alert, not only to lose
as little ground as possible during foal
winds, but also to derive full benefit
from everr puff of fair.
There is one condition under which
a vessel Is Justified in holding off for
better weather. It sometimes happens
that a ship immediately after rounding
Cape St. Joan or emerging from the
Strait of Le Malre, runs into the teeth
of a heavy southwesterly gale. Under
such circumstances it Is undoubtedly
wiser to put back into the smooth
water under the lee of Staten Island,
where the strength of the current is
lost and where it is consequently possible
to maintain the ground already
galned than to stand off to the south
on the starboard tack, with the possibility
of being driven farto the east
ward in a latitude where every m'
of westing is a struggle.
With regard to the proper route
to follow In rounding Cape Horn, it is
here, above all other places, requisite
kaat this should be adapted to the prevailing
meteorological conditions, especially
with regard to the barometric
pressure. From this point of view the
most favorable disposition is that
there should be found in the immediate
vicinity of the cape and at not too
great a distance to the southward a
center of low pressure, and that this
center should remain practically stationary
from the date of rounding Cape
St. John until that of crossing 50 deg.
S. In the Pacific. Such a distribution
of pressure in the southern hemisphere
gives rise to a system of winds
which circulate about the center in
a right-handed or clockwise direction.
A westward bound vessel, by k eping
this center constantly on the starboard
hand, passing it to the southward, will
thus have northeasterly, easterly and
southeasterly winds in succession with
which to make the passage.
A vessel fortunate enough to encounter
easterly winds in rounding
the Horn should endeavor to retain
them as long as possible, and this can
only be done by remaining on ths
southern side of the center of the barometric
depression which they surround.
A mistake frequently made,
even by masters thoroughly conversant
with the characteristics of Cape
Horn weather, is to head up to the
northwest with the first slant of the
wind to eastward after passing the
cape, regardless of tue indications of
the barometer. The result of steering
such a course is, in a majority of
cases, that they shortly cross the axis
of the trough of low pressure and find
themselves once more in the midst of
the westerly gales prober to its northern
half, where the fierce struggle for
westing recommences, while favorable
winds and smoother water may be
within a few hours' sail to the southward.
For this reason, with easterly
winds and low barometer the vessel
should be put directly before the wind,
or even with the wind somewhat on
the port quarter, if the continued fall
of the mercury and the weather indications
show that the center of the
depression is approaching. With the
wind over the starboard quarter there
is always risk of saiung out of the
favorable into unfavorable winds, ex
cept in the case where a shift to
southeast with a rising barometer
shows that the depression is moving
to the eastward, and that the normal
westerly winds will soon prevail
throughout the whole region.
Perhaps the most trying part of the
photographic operator's life is the handling
of children, yet Mifes Haskins. with
infinite skill, seems to find no difficulty
in the matter.
It is surprising the variety of poses
the little ones are led into by her skillful
handling, nil so natural and delightful.
Mis Haskins has a style of her own
and her efforts are highly appreciated
by thoe who are competent to judge.
