A NEW DEPARTURE.
There has recently been organized
an institution called the Honolulu
school of Dramatic Art.
Our city has long wanted an organization
of this clr.ss, attractious
being few and far between. The
School is in the hands of weil
known men who are thoroughly
familiar with the professional
stage, this fact alone insures the
success of the venture. It is the
intention of the faculty to produce
modern dramas at intervals at the
Opera House in order that the pupils
may acquire that freedom on
the stage that goes to make up the
finished actor. The directors of
the School are as follows : Lovette
Rockwell, Allan Dunn, Stuart
Webster and W. D. Adams of the
Bergstrom Music Co., to whom all
communications regarding initiation
should be addressed. There
is also a vocal department ably
managed by Mr. Hugo Herzer
connected with the institution. The
rooms of the School are in the
Progress Block and visitors are always
welcome.

MY ISLANDS.
On the edge of the world my Islands
lie,
Under the sun-steeped sky;
And their waving palms
Are bounteous alms
To the soul-spent passer by.
On the edge of the world my Islands
dream
Under the tender gleam
Of moon and star
That beckon far
From worlds that only seem.
On the edge of the world my Islands
sleep
In a slumber and deep,
What should they know
Of a world of woe,
And mriad men that weep.
On the edge of the world, dear
Islands, stay,
Far from its clamorous day,
Content with calm,
Hold peace and balm,
Be Isles of the Blest, for aye.

THE HONOLULU TIMES.
PLACEZ A MON COTE.
This beautiful French hymn was
written by the celebrated Ultramontane,
Louis Veuillof, and set
to music by Charles Gounod (in
1883), recently deceased:
Placez a mon cote ma plume,
Sur mon coeur le Christ mon
orgueil ;
Sous mes pieds mettez ce volume,
Et clouez en paix le cercueil.
Apres le derniero priere
Sur ma fosse plantez la croix,
Et si on me donne tine pierre
Gravez dessus; J' ai crul Je
vois I
Dites entre vous ; II sommeille,
Son dur labeur est acheve !
On plutot dies ; II s'eveille !
II voit ce qu' il a tant reve I
J' espere en Jesus sur la terre;
Je n'ai pas rougi de son loi;
Au dernier jour, devant son Pere,
II ne rougira pas de moil

SOME BIG CATCHES OF
FISH.
Steamers arriving from Kauai
ports yesterday bring news of
some great fish catches. During
the past week thousands of fish
have been caught off Waiwea. At
Hanalei Mr. Birkmyre is reported
to have captured 4000 mullet in
one haul in the Hanalei river.
It is not time to have the basic
law of this Territory amended?
We put the question to the visiting
Senators. Should not the man
who is responsible to the President
and Congress for the honesty
and efficiency of local administration,
be empowered to make his
own choice of subordinates and to
remove them for cause? That is
the rule in the best systems of
municipal government and it ought
to be the rule here where political
conditions always threaten the
Treasury and obstruct every effort
in office for the public good.
The Territorial Agricultural Department
for which Wray Taylor
is commissioner, is at present engaged
in an effort to promote
small farming in Hawaii by every
possible means. Not only is this
work being done in tle free distribution
of advice but also of
seeds and plants required by the
farmers. Seed potatoes sufficient
to plant hundreds of acres have
been sent to Maui and sisal plants
enough to start a good sized plantation
for Molokai.
The work of the department is
done for the most part in the
Valley experiment stations.
Thousands and thousands of trees
and plants are under the care of
Foresters Haughs who is in
charge there. The illustration
above shows the propagating house
on the left, where thousands of
young trees are given their start
in life. When the sprouts have
attained a sufficient growth they
are distributed free to whoever
may make request. Many of the.
most beautiful forests on the islands
are the results of young
trees planted by the government.
During the rainy season the
propagating house is used by tVfe
employes of the forester in making
flower pots from ti leaves.
On the right are the servants'
quarters, while to the rear the illustration
shows the residence occupied
by the forester.
Panicum grass which is shown
under cultivation in the second
picture is being distributed over
the Territory to the various ranches.
Panicum grass is said to be
an ideal food for stock, and the
results already obtained from the
seeds sent appear to justify the
claim.
GREAT INDUCEMENT TO
STUDENTS.

concert on Tuesday evening, Oct.
14, have arranged a special rate for

Wilczek has arranged an elaborate
program including such numbers
as the Prinze Song from the

event as well as a great musical
treat, as several social parties
have engaged seats at this early
date.
