Good old P. C. Jones, from the
land of prudes', actually voiced his
displeasure at a reprinted cut of a
negro boxer in tho Advertiser the
other day. P. Cushman is a dear
old soul but so imbued with the
t ideas that infested Salem a hundred
or more years ago that he should
get away from wicked Honolulu,
where the tastes of the people are
rude and vulgar. I expect to hear
of his following the Htep of the
IJostonese of a quarter century ago
when they demanded the removal
of statuary from the parks and
museums. I think someone had
garments made to cover them.
Great preparations are being
made for the celebration that is to
take place February 22. From
Kona will come the big canoes that
are said to be similar to those used
as war canoes in the days of Kanu
hameha. They arc to be in the
water pageant depicting the arrival
j of the great chief from Kona. There
I will be ten Hawaiians as chiefs and
body guard to Kainehameha and
each will be over six feet tall. There
will be races of every description at
the beach and in the harbor, the

and by that 1 mean fifty yards or

that day would be oflicial and would

the races wfrnld be worth while.
The dividends on Oahu stock
have been cut to fifteen cents a
share, and tin; stock is beginning
to show the effect of it. Holders of
it at par will receive nine per cent;
those who paid at high water price
are losers. Nine per cent would be
considered easy money by persons
living any where but in the shadow
of Carnegie tet I works or the cane
fields of this territory. How long
it will continue at nine is not
thought out. If the tariff is inter
fered with to any great extent there
will no doubt be another ami more
substantial drop. In the meantime

Slates will have in its :-ervice a man
who will save, and save by every
means known to the prince of
economists. I'.ut Robert will not
get it, 1 trow, foi that very reason.
The government, nor the people,
will not oother with a man so close
that he would he his own hair cut

left to Cathcart and the result was
the lop from a cracker box with
letters so small that they can scarce

economy, but of course he has his
good streaks and his ideas some
time lead t.t savi' to the public.

has some heeler for the place. And
that reminds me that I am doing
for Panon just what I object to
the newspapers doing: Keeping
him forever in the limelight. If it
were not for the publicity given
him by (he Advertiser he would
still be content peddling en
largements of photographs with
frames marked down to Sl.oS.
He has been so frequently quoted
that he has swollen to an enormous
size and I doubt not that some of
the Hawaiians believe he is the
whole party. His connection with
Link's candidacy probably aided in
his defeat for the man of affairs in

The street carnival last night was
one of the most enjoyable affairs
ever given here under the same con

ever te be remembered and the

ushered in with horns, whistles and
bells. Electric lights faced tin
Young building, the park was light

and the trees on the side of the
street were a mass of fancy electric
bulbs. It may become an annual
affair, this "Mayor's Dance" and
will be patronized more and more
as time-passes. People of all classes
took part last night. Confetti and
horns in the hands of young and
old kept the people on the jump.
Carl S. Sarlsmith was brought to
Honolulu on the Honolulan yester
day suffering from an ailment not
too clear to the persons who sur
rounded him on the steamer and
saw that he reached the hospital
safely. Yesterday morning his con
dition was such that no one was
.ii lowed to see him; just now I
learn he had ail attack of tonsilitis
with complications. U. It. Elgin,!
who died on Monday was known
widely in the islands. He came
here about, the lime annexation and
for a time was general ticket agent
for the Hilo llailway. Lately he
has been agent for the Hawaii I'ail-
way, a position which he resigned
to take a trip around the world.
New Year's Day was celebrated
in a spirited manner, according to
the usual programme. The Pioneer
whistle, the church bells, and gun
filing made things lively at mid
night. Much powder was burned,
and screnaders sang appropriate
carols. New Year's calls were in
order, and gifts galore were ex
