HIGH SCHOOL CONCERT.
Good Programme Furnishr; 1 Before a
The efforts of the High School
pupils to secure funds to pay for elec

with good results. A handsome sum

warmly hppreciated. Miss Kulununu
Ward's solo met with much favor.
Miss Stella Love gave a very clever
recitation and had to respond to an
encore before the audience could be
sutisfled. Miss A. Whitney played a
piano solo in mlelightf ill manner. She
chose Taite's "Sprays from a Foun

piece was artistic and almost faultless.
Other solos were played by Miss Elsie

OCEAN GREYHOUND NOW BEING
BUILT BY MAIL COMPANY.
As Fine as Any Atlantic Liner High
Rate of Speed To Be Larger than
tho Crack China American Built.
Advices are expected by the steam
ship Gaelic in regard to the new 10,000
tons steamship which the Pacific Mall
Company is building at Newport News
for the Occidental trade. The plans
for the new vessel were turned out by
the company's naval architect several
months ago, but the building opera
tions were not commenced until a few
weeks ago. From private sources It
is learned that the keel of the vessel
has ulrcndy been laid, and the work is
being pushed as rapidly as possible.
It will require nearly two years to
complete the new steamship.
A gentleman who has seen the plans
of the new China liner say that sho
will be as line in finish and almost as
speedy as nny of the great Atlantic
liners. She will be a twin-screw steam
ship, built somewhat on the lines of
the St. Paul and will be about twice
tho tonnage of the steamship China.
Her maximum speed will be probably,
twenty knots, but she will be expected
only to do eighteen knots on ah aver
age, which will make her much faster
than any essel now visiting this port.
The ve.ss.el will be the pioneer of the
new type of steamships to be built by
the Pacific Mail company for the Or
iental trade. The passenger business
of the company is increasing year by
year and there is a constantly growing
demand for better accommodations
nnd speedier trips.
Ilackfeld & Co., local agents of the
Pacific Mail Company, .have not, up to
date, received any advices as to Hie
new vessel, but expressed no surprise
when informed of the reported project.
The matter was being discussed in
San Francisco prior to the departure
of the Australia', 'and will no doubt be
exploited in the newspapers received
on the Gaelic. -
METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH.
Sermons Pleached by Pastor Peek at
"Let the wicked forsake his way and
the unrighteous man his thoughts, nnd
let him return unto the Lord and he
will have mercy upon him and to fear
God for He will abundantly irardon,"
Isaiah 55:7, was the text of Pastor
Peck's morning sermon. "Wickedness
is wrongdoing of any kind, whether it
be willful, positive wrong doing, or
willful neglect of duty toward God or
man. Preachers who preach any Gos
pel but that of Jesus Christ do
wrong; pastors who neglect their duty
in warning members of wrong doing,
regardless of the-position or influence
of the member, neglect duty. Pastors
who go Into homes and spend their
time socially and rarely have personal
conversation about the immortal soul
of the person visited, do wrong. In
the two years and n half of my pas
torate among you I feel that I have
not always done my duty by you," said
the minister. "There nre two parts in
the work, mine nnd yours; both nre
important. Neither can be neglected
without loss. The Sunday School sup
erintendent or teachers who neglect
to pray and work for the personal sal
vation of the scholars of their classes
nre guilty of sin before God. The mein-
ler who comes to criticise the preach
er, or with ill-will in the heart toward
some members, is wrong before God.
He who comes pretending "to worship
God, but really to advance his busi
ness interests, is guljty of hypocrisy,
nnd the sin for which Ananias and
Sapphira died. The member who can
find plenty of time for lodges nd
socials but very little time for prayer
meeting, neglects his duty to God and
robs himself of blessings. The man
who can spend five dollars on himself
nnd his personal interests and pleas
ures, and drops at the same time .five
cents in the contribution, is scIIIhIi,
and also robs God, who 1ms given him
his all. Where wrong doing takes'
place, whether in pulpit or pew, it
needs to lie repented of before God
forgiveness sought the wrong ways
nnd thoughts forsaken; then, and then
only, will God forgive and abundantly

Good Coffee Lands About to Be Opened
Sad Case of Drowning Sugar
Cone Destroyed by Fire Notes.
Maul, February 0.
Intending coffee planters would do
well to look iiito the hind at Nahiku,
neir liana, on this island, soon to be
opened for settlement by the Govern
ment. This land Is situated on a slope,
gently rising from the sea to about
2000 feet above, and is almost entirely
free from ravines and gulches. Accord
ing to experts the land is very rich
and fertile and well adapted to coffee
culture. The rainfall is plenteous and
there is water in abundance. Being
sparsely wooded, tlie cost of clearing
would not be great, the undergrowth
being all one would have to contend
with. The Government is now hard tit
work laying out this land. Mr. How
ell, the surveyor, is busy at present
with the road from liana. Tho survey
of this he has completed from llano
about half way towards Nahiku, and
from Nahlktl nearly the other half
back, leaving a small piece between,
that will soon be completed. After
the road, the laying off the lots will
be pushed forward. There is no rea
J..OI1 why Nahiku should not be a thriv
ing settlement in the future. With a
good harbor at liana, and an almost
level road leading- to it, the prospects
are all in its favor. Then too besides
all this, adjoiping Nahiku on the Ma-
kawao side, lies the grandest nnd
most beautiful portion of the Hawaii
an Islands, with till due respect to
Ililo and Kauai. At Wnialua-nui and
Keanae are other rich tracts of land
that will also be opened in time.
A sad case of drowning occurred at
Wiiiokoa, Kuhi, on Wednesday of last
week. The little seven year old boy
of Frank Antone, a Portuguese living
there, had been told by the mother to
take care of his little sister, while she
was busy. Looking for them soon
after, the mother found the little girl
alone by n gulch near by, and search
ing further, to her 'horror discovered
the dead body of her boy lying in a
water hole at the bottom of the gulch.
He had evidently fallen in, and was
unable to save himself.
Maui people were much surprised at
the change of management nt Spreck
elsville, and regret very much to lose
Mr. nnd Mrs. Center from there. Mr.
Center went to Honolulu on the Mauna
Laa Thursday .morning, and the rumor
here is that the management of Wai-
inae had much to do with his trip.
Tho news of Mr. Pnty's death was
received with much sorrow here. .Maui
friends extend to the family the deep
est sympathy in their bereavement.

Shipping has been exceedingly lively
this week at Kaliului. The "full rigged
ship Geo. C. Stetson, ...urphy master,
arrived Sunday, in ballast, twenty-one
days from San Francisco. The Stetson
has the distinction, not only of being
the first full rigged ship seen in Ka
liului bay for years, but of being the
largest vessel that ever entered tho
harbor. Her register is 2800 tons. Sho
is to take a combined cargo of Spreck
elsvllle, Haiku and Paia sugar around
the Horn to New York.

has had this trip, the captain left jMirt

The Writer Believes There Is No
Prospect of Immediate Action by tho
U. S. Government Must Walt.
Hawaiian Cansul General G. I). Gil
man writes to a friend as follows:
"I hope annexation is us" near of ac
complishment for you as you desire
and think but it does not seem fo mo
that there is prospect of Immediate ac
tion by the United States Government.
"Really the Islands seem a great
way off to most peop elwho have no
especial interest. 1 spoke to a gentle
men's club of forty last week, and tho
fact was very plain how little the Ha
waiian situation wns understood, and
hou. t.onll)iiraUvely little wns the inter

Interested and expressed themselves
so, and no doubt will lie more appre
ciative thinkers lu the future.
"But the muss of the people do not
understand your strong claims. My
hope is in the fact that Congress has
so many well-informed men that do
know the great interests involved, that
Congress will lead the people. If tho
Sugar Trust is declared against you,
they are powerful, and eon incite a
strong opposition to any immediate
action. 1 fear Senator Perkins and
the Congressmen from San Francisco
being now against you will have the
tendency to mnke more delay. 1 think
our Massachusetts delegation will bo
all right. I have sent the newly elect
ed members the Hawaiian Overland,
II. M. W-. Guide, and other material to
read, before they are called to Wash
ington, probably March lo.
"The extra session will probably
first of all deal with the tariff, and
finance, both of which will necessarily
take some time, and the party leaders
will not want to prolong the session n
day more thnn Is absolutely necessary
for party plans. If President McKin
ley should advise speedy action, then
it may come. If hp only calls atten
tion to it, I think you will find that it
must wait. It is not so much n ques
tion of the United States 'wanting,' or
'not wanting,' as of a proper under
standing of the matter, and an intelli
gent desire for information."
LENT SEASON NEAR.
Yesterday was the last Sunday after
Epiphany this year. The three weeks
of preparation for the solemn season
of Lent will now follow. In this sea
son the church exhorts its members to
cultivate the three great Christian vir
tues of faith, hope and charity.
