In the conduct of the Marshal's
office Mr. Hitchcock has been
singularly blessed in having as an
assistant such an able deputy as
Mr. Arthur M. Brown, whose like
ness is shown here.
Arlhnr, as his intimates call him,
is a Honolulu boy and received his
education at Punahou from which
institution he was graduated.
H iving shown a predilection for
the law his desires were encouraged
and he was sent to the Boston
University Law School from which
he graduated in 1891. Returning
to Honolulu he. entered the office
Judge Hartwell, embarking shortly
afterward as an active practitioner
at the Honolulu bar.
At the time of the overthrow in
1893, Mr. Brown took the side for
good government and became
active among the citizen soldiery
and was given command of a squad
of lneiiyou guard at the Judiciary
building. When it became neces
sary for'a transfer of arms and
ammunition from the police station
to the Qovernment buildings on
King street Mr. Brown volunteered
his services in the undertaking and
accomplished satisfactory results.
In recognition of his services during
those tempestuous times he was
proffered and accepted the office of
Deputy Marshal of the Republic,
an office which he has so satisfac
Since taking the position Mr.
Brown has had rather thrilling ex
perience with men used to handling
guns, borne time ago, when the
Government decided to bring in
some lepers who were hiding near
fcwa, Mr. Brown and Capt. Parker
went out for the purpose of carrying
out the law. After coralling the
men the ofheers were hred upon
and had a narrow escape from
death. During the recent outbreak
he lead the officers to Bertlemaun's
house and while standing on the
veranda the rebels opened fire and
Mr. Brown once more experienced
the decidedly unpleasant sensation
of having bullets whistle in rather
close proximity to his head: his es
cape on this occasion suggests his
being born under a lucky star.

iug. This proposition is regarded
as a fair' one.
The Hawaiian Opera House was
completed early in 1882. It was
built by the Hawaiian Music Hall
Association. The building was of
brick 120 by 60 feet on the ground
floor and walls forty feet high and
twenty inches thick. The front
door was ten feet wide, opening into
a veslibule 16 by 27 feet. The gal
lery had 183 seats. The seating
capacity of the house was 671 per
sons. The stage was forty feet deep
and provided with a complete set of
scenery, traps and all necessary
paraphernalia. The original officers
of the Association were: S. G. Wil
der, President; H. A. Widematin,
Vice President; J. A. Hassinger,
Secretary; A. Mcwayne, Treasurer.
Other persons interested were
IMward Preston, A. S. Clcghorn,
J. II. Paty, A. J. Cartwright and
V. G. Irwin. The cost of the
building, furnished and ready for
occupancy, was $54,000. The Wells
troutic opened the music hall in
Soon after this, or July 28, 1883,
the property was sold at auction to
satisfy a claim. It was bought by
Mr. V. G. Irwin for $21,000, John

The Hawaiian Opera caught fire
at 7 o clock this morning, and
within an hour was a complete
wreck. It is entirely gutted.
The roof has fallen and only the
trembling walls remain.
The blaze was first noticed by
some one on the streets, and the
alarm was turned into the Mutual
Telephone office. At that time
the smoke was coining through the
windows around the stage and the
roof. The tower was wrapped in
flames. Many people on the streets
saw the fire and congregated
around the building, even before
the alarm had been turned in.
Before the bell rang No. 2's big
engine was flying to the scene, fol
lowing the chemical. No. i's
horses were out for exercise and
did not get there until some time
later. In perhaps fifteen minutes
China engine No. 5 put in an ap
pearance and dropped hose from
Alakea down King street.
By the time water was procured
the building was doomed. Smoke
and flames were emerging from
windows and doors and from the
eaves of the roof 011 every side. The
stage and settings were like so
much tinder and sent the flames
shooting through the roof.
The main auditorium caught
overhead, the chairs in the para
quet and dress circle seeming to
remain almost unscathed until
the roof fell in. Another singular
thing was that the curtains front
ing both boxes down stairs were
not burnt when the windows op

today with a handsome gold watch

Lowrey, with a few appropriate
remarks, handed the watch to the
Deputy Marshal. The inscription
is as follows: "Presented to Arthur

Though no .pains have been
spared to ascertain the origin of
the fire, the matter practically re
mains a mystery. Captain Larsen
and Deputy-Marshal Brown have
both exhausted their resources on
the matter without positive result
The theory that the fire started
from an electric wire is consider'
ably weakened by the fact that the
wires were caretully insulated and
are frequently examined.
Mr. Irwin thinks tuat tramps,
who are wont to raise the windows
and sleep in the opera house, start
ed the fire. Half burned cigarettes,
etc., have frequently been found
on the floor in the morning, and
windows have been forced open.
The fact remains, however, that
the fire had made greatest headway
in the top of the building when dis
covered. The woodwork in the
upper walls was all aflame before
the stage settings had been de
stroyed. A fireman carried his
hose among the flats on the left
side of the stage, at which time no
fire could be seen among the scenery
except what was falling from above.
The center of the blaze appeared to
be lust over Mr. W. G. Irwin's box
on the right side. It is possible
that it started below and ran up the
flats to this point.

A substitute for the rifling ot
cannon, wlncli is tue cluet cause
for the great cost of modern guns,
has been devised by Mr. Unge, a
Swedish engineer, who also ex
pects to put an end to the deterior
ation of the bore due to the com
bustion of gases which the new
He Its the projectile with gas
checks, which prevent the passage
of any gases, and gives to it the
axial rotary movement which' is
now obtained by rifling the barrel
by a mechanical device which gives
the twist to the gun itself at the
moment of firing. The motion
conveyed may be kept constant or
increased. He claims that the
effect is the same as that obtained
by the twist in the rifle: that the
accuracy of fire obtained by his
system is equal or superior; that
by it heavy guns can be produced
at half the present cost and will last
twice as long as they do now.
