Labor troubles are brightening up
wonderfully on the big plantation at
Spreckelsvilie. The Japanese, tired
of loafing, are returning to work by
the score, but there is slid a short-
e of labor, owing to which fact
the mills are only running, for the
most part in the day time.
Planting Is being pushed forward
rapidly and all concerned feel that
it will be but a short time until the
the labor difficulties will be entirely
and satisfactorily adjusted.
Foreign mail was brought over
from Lahaina, yesterday mornnng,
but no papers. The Isews with its
characteristic, enterprise organized
a pony express line to Lahaina and

If the, plague came to Kahului a
a blessing m disguise, the change in
ownership of the Kahului Railroad
will no less prove an undisguised
blessing. Now blood has been in
fused into the management of affairs
and progress is r.ow the watchword.
Mr. James T. Tavlor. the civil
engineer, tp, whose f.nei'gy and ability
Wailuku and Iahului are indebted
for the completion of their water
system, is now engaged in making
a new survey of the railroad and
depot system at Kahului, with
view of entirely remodeling them
:iud better adapting them to th
comfort and convenience if the trav
elling public and shippers of freight.
The passengers cars of the Company
are now in the repair shops, where
they are being properly fitted for
passenger traffic.
the two wharves are to be en
lavged, three new scows and eight
self-dumping coal cars will be add-nl,so
that freight blockades will be
thing qf the past. New depots
round hnuscs and car shops are to
be constructed, possibly on the burnt
district, if the company acquire
the control of that property.
All present moorings will be exchang
ed for iron buoys with new chains and
anchors. As soon as repairs are
effected and new buildings construct
ed, Mr. Taylor will begin the survey
of the new line of road, mentioned
a recent issue of the News. Cyrus
Green, Esq., has the contract for the
construction of the new Paia depot
which will be built just below the
Paia mill.
Plans are being drawn for a ne
hotel iu Kahului, to bo built near the
wharf. This will be a large and
roomy building, modern in style, and
comfortably fitted up. There will
be a lower and upper balcony, ex
tending around three sides of the
hotel, and the side next the sea will
extend oui into the water, supported
on piles.
Trees are to be planted around
the building, and when ready for
occupancy it will make a lovely little
seaside resort, with delightfnl bath
ing facilities. A boat club is bein
organized, a nice boating club
house and bath houses will be
built, and a yacht is o be brought
from the Coast. No more sliantii
are to bo built at Kahului, but neat
and ccmmodio'.is cottages will I

Camp Wood will be kept as
home for the laborers, and a special
camp boss will lie employed to kei
this portion oi Kahului in perfect
sanitary condition.
Superintendent Filler, of the Ka

in favor of these improvements, and

The cause of till- action on their
part originated' during tlic "plague
pideinic at Kahului. At that tinie,
he diK'tor gave up his private prac
tice and aevoted his whole tune to
the cflre of the plague patients, and
to quarantine matters till all danger
was past.
As' a token of appreciation, a sub
scription was raised, and an elegant
gokTwa.teh and c.iain was purchased.
On iast Satwdny, a charming
breakfast was " hrved at Shrader's
New hote"l, Wailutu,' at which as ma
ny as possible of the dono'-s were prcs-
nt. Dr. Weddick was invited to the
breakfast, and was presented with
the watch. Mr. James Thomas, who
acted as master of ceremonies, truly
oieed the sentiment of the donors
when he stated that a genuine aloha
for the doctor, no less than admira
tion for his self abnegation, was the
motive which led to the presentation.
The doctor responded briefly and
touchingly to the speech of presenta
tion, admitting however that for mice
his Irish gift of gab failed him. He
kindly thanked the donors, adding
that his appreciation of the gift was
not for its instrinslc value, but rath
er for the aloha which the sight of
it would ulways recall.
On the inner case of the watch was
an appropriate inscription. The donors
were II. P. Baldwin, C. B. Wells, H

On board the S. T. Alexander
which left San Francisco July 11, arc
four new switch boards for the cen
tral offices, of which one will be at
Wailuku, one i.t Paia, one at Lahai
na and one at Hana. A number of
new telephones of the latest im
proved patent are to arrive, for the
use of new applicants for telephone
service. The Alexander is "due in a
day or two, and as soon as the ni;w
plant arrives, the switch boards and
telephones will be put up.
The W ailuku central office will be
placed in the building recently oc
cupied by Mr. Ben Lyon, on iMain
street, adjoining tlia (vfllee of
Judge Kepoikai.
It is d.psivablo that all who wish tele
phone service should make application
to Superintendent Carley by or bt
lore me nrst ot August, as a new
telephone directory is to be publish
ed early in August, and it is the
wish of the oynpanv that the new
subscribers sJo,uld apply in time
have numbers assigned to them, and
to have their names listed in the new

A rumor is afloat that, the nuuia
gers of -.he Pioneer Plant atUn at
Lahaina now proDoso to furnish the
citizens of Lahaina with water from
their pumps near sea 'level, and to
take unto themselves the pure, fresh
water from the mountains. Pump
water would have been acceptable,
although brackish and .not. fit for
drinking, if it had been offered soon
er. But now that an . appropriation
for fresh water has been made, the
people of Lahaina naturally object to
brackish water.
Fortunately, Senator John McCan
dless is now our superintendent of
public works, and aithpugh he is an
owner in the Pioneer mill company
there is not much danger that he
would allow such an imposition to be
practiced on the long suffering peo
ple of Lahaina.

the horrible fact that Admiral Soy

Chinese were frightfully tortured.
. When Admiral Seymour in his re
treat found himself so hard pressed
that he was unable longer to carry
his wounded with him. he asked them:
"Which do you-prefer, to lie left to
the mercise of the Chinese, or be shot
by your own comrades?'' As Admiral
Seymour put the question tears were
runniug down his cheeks. "We pre
fer death to torture. Shoot us now,
that we may die like men." was the
prompt response of the helpless. A
tiring s(jnul was told off, and while
