JUST A LITTLE NERVOUS.
Disguise it as the majority tried,
there was considerable apprehension
.among the citizens yesterday over
the approaching transit of the
comet and the sun. Just what was
to have been expected, few knew
and although there were very few
who actually gave up and acknowledged
that they were "scared to
death," there were very many who
heaved a sigh of relief when six
o'clock came and the world was the
same old green spot, with Diamond
Head where it ought to be.

Schaefer & Co. withdrew from

GETTING OUT THE NEWS.
Queen Victoria died on January
23, 1901. A day later the steamship
Sonoma sailed with the news from
San Francisco for Honolulu, arriving
here on January 30. A week
thus passed before the people in this
city knew of the death of the British
Yesterday, at midnight in London,
King Edward breathed his
last. At the corresponding time the
hands of the Honolulu clocks pointed
to thirty-three minutes after one
o'clock in the afternoon. Before
half-past two o'clock, within sixty
minutes after the death in London,
the news was on a bulletin board
and posted in The Advertiser window.
Britain's sons, wherever they may
be, grieve today for the death of
their sovereign, King Edward VII.,

which all must hear, be he crowned

With their grief the sons of
Columbia can sympathize and in
their sorrow we can join. In the
death of Edward the loss is to the
world; Great Britain sonows for
the passing of a wise and potent
ruler; America grieves for the
death of a nation's friend ; the world
feels the taking away of one who

years the preservation of the

In 1901, when the venerable and
venerated Queen Victoria breathed
her last , Edward quietly stepped
into her place. He was devoted to
his mother and her death cut him
to the heart, but he knew that he
owed a service to his country and
he took up his new duties with a
willing, albeit a heavy, heart. And
from the first he showed himself
to be of a caliber ample to fill his
mother's place. Many difficult problems
came to him to solve but his
judgment was ever clear. He
showed himself to be as good a
judge of counselors as king as he
had been a judge of friends while
prince, and Britain under his rule
continued to flourish as she had
during the reign of Victoria.
But nine years Edwaid sat upon
the throne of Britain, but during
those nine years he showed himself
to be a fit successor to his illustrious
namesake, the . Confessor.
Edward Wettin, descendant of a
long line of German princes, was
Briton to the backbone
not Scotch, not Irish, not
Welsh but clean, loyal Briton.

years ago, our beloved King declared
that so long as there was
breath in his body he would work
for the good and amelioration of his
subjects. I am sure that the opinion
of the whole nation will be that
this declaration has been fully carried
King George delivered a brief,
but earnest address. He exhibited
deep emotion as he announced his
determination to endeavor under
the guidance of God to maintain the
high traditions of the British court
and to fulfill to the best of his ability
the great trust reposed in him.

Here's my "sweet-pretty" Kaliko,
With her round face so smooth and
The sparkling black eyes all
I'd risk to match her 'gainst the
She cannot boast a single curl,
But in her mouth two rows of pearl,
Ah, she is native true as true
The taro-patch and holoku
My little Kaliko.
She knows this earth a fairy-land,
In which to sing and sail and swim
And run about to hear the band,
All full of mirth up to the brim ;
(Now, shuffling small feet through
the sand, )
Ah, she is native true as true,
The taro-patch and holoku,
That little Kaliko.
In her guileless honest heart,
Envy or malice own no part;
She's a brownie and all is said
Poi for her and never bread
Ah, she's a native through and
The taro-patch and holoku,
My little Kaliko.
