II BACK URGE AUSTRALIAN" MINERS RETURNING , FROM THE KLONDIKE. Gil i OF FEfilGIIIIWOiftllS Harrowing Talc of the Alaskan Eldo rado Broke and Disgusted Men on the Aorangi. Thirty much disconcerted, if not thoroughly disgusted, Australian min ers, are passengers by the Aorangi for their homes In the south. Most of them passed through Honolulu last winter in the steamer Cape Otway on the voyage to the Alaskan Eldorado, the Klondike. They were hardy and brave men, and went forward with fearless hearts. Their return is not the same. They are dead broke, and wish to get as far from Dawson City oh steam and better fortune can take them. "Alaska, curse the name!" said one of them with emphasis this morning. "I would os soon be alone, without money, in the desert of Sahara. We are fortunate in getting back on a steamer. Most of our party are mnk ing their way as best they con down the coast, to Vancouver. I doubt if many will ever get out of the place alive. "For us Australia is good enoucrh. There are no hardships there, and when we prospect wo know what we are doing. None of our whole party of tnree hundred has mode a stick in laska. We ore nil ont. Those of 11s who hod grub sold it at Dawson to pay our way back. We are traveling on it now." The Australions are reallv much discouraged. They looked neat and enthusiastic when they passed through here some months ago. Now iney appear seedy and worn, wenr bush beards and inquire the price of meal at a restaurant before they sit down. 1 hey will return to Knnca roo Land firmly resolved never to strike out again on a venture in the frozen north.

The Thanksgiving feast given by the ladies of Honolulu yesterday to the soldiers now within the city h gates went oil In a manner entirely satisfactory to the residents, nnd in n way that was most gratify ing to the boys in blue, who found themselves, on this day of days, so far from home and friends. It has shown the soldiers that Honolulu does re spect and appreciate them, and has drawn the people of the town move closely to the men in the tents than ever before. The departure of the New Yorkers will be regretted by the city, which is just beginning to know them well, nnd the boys from the Em pire state have mode friendships here which will be most reluctantly sev ered. Following is an account of the Thanksgiving feast at the various camps and hospitals: NEW YORKERS FEASTED. The real big Thanksgiving dinner of yesterday was in the camp of the First New York regiment ut Waialae, containing something like 800 men. Lute Wednesday eight long tables from the grounds of the Executive building were arranged near the white city beyond Knalawoi. There was one for the oilicers and seven for the companies. Early yesterday morning the ladies appointed to enrrv out the feast authored there. The food was taken out in wagons suppli ed by Colonel Barber. It was 1 o clock when the companies "fell in" at the tobies. At thot time appetites were whetted and nil wre in thorough trim to enjoy the feast. lhe tables, orrunged parallel to each other, were loaded with all the good things afforded by the mnrket and were prettily decorated with flowers and evergreens. On the bill of fnre were fish, potatoes, turnips, turkey and cranberry sauce, potato salad, chicken salad, bread and butter, chic ken pot pie, coffee, ginger nle, soda water, ice cream and cake, nuts, ra isins and n half dozen other dishes, The effort of the ladles was to make the boys feel that they were at home nnd were having an old time Thanks giving. In this spirit the soldiers were concordant, and entered into the feast with homelike enthusiasm. The dinner lasted nearly an hour. Nearly an hour more was spent at the tables talking. Several times cheers were proposed for the ladies and were en thusiastically given. Mrs. Dole was manager over all of the feast arrangements at the New York camp. Besides a corps of young ladies, who assisted greatly in enter taining the boys in blue, the follow ihg were in charge of the separate ta bles: Mrs. F. M. Hatch, Mrs. C. B. Cooper, Mrs. S. M. Damon, Mrs. In galls, Mrs. II, E. Waity, Mrs. T. G. Thrum and Mrs. Harold M. Scwoll. These ladies were thanked during the afternoon cordially by individual members of the regiment for the eiv tertninment. ENGINEERS DINED. Another Teal pretty l.east on Thanksgiving day was ,ut Kapiolani park. About 350 men sat down to it Grace was said at 12 o'clock sharp. Four lonir tables covered with snowy linen, flowers in large vases and viands to tempt the gods, presented them selves before the sturdy westerners, The attack was immediate, determln ed nnd successful. At one table, super vised by Mrs. Robert Lowers, sat the officers of the battalion, with Major Langfitt at the head. At the others were the enlisted men. It was nil the heart could desire. In charge, of the tables occupied by the enlisted men were Mrs. John A. McCandless, Mrs John II. Soper nnd Miss Nellie Judd At the conclusion of the feast three cheers were given for the ladies and for tlio good people of Honolulu. INDEPENDENCE PARK. Une ot the prettiest and most uu press! ve feasts of the day, and one pir. haps most appreciated, was that to the sick in the military hospital at In dependence park. Here nil the cheer that tender hands, kinds words, flow ers and the good things one longs for and expects to have on Thanksgiving day, was brought. About 118 men were nble to sit down in the ninin din ing hall to the feast. Each was treat ed witli the tenderness of a child Most of those ut table were allowed by the physicians to eat anything in sight. This they lost no time in do ing. In the sick wards were perhaps hundred men. Gruel, soups and lit tie delicacies, os allowed by the physl clans, wero prepared for them. By each cot wero large bouquets of pretty flowers. "It is wonderful how bright nnd cheerful the men have become to day," said an attendant. "Tho now nbout going home and tho reception by tho ladles today have dono more good than n barrel of medicines." Mrs. Riemehsehneidcr decoroted tho rooms for the feast. Mrs ,T. N. Wrlgh was superintendent over nil. She wos assisted by Mrs. Parke, Mrs. J. B Atherton, Mrs. Oilman, Mrs. II. Pratt Articles of incorporation of the es tate of James 1. Dowsett have been filed.

There was quite u little excitement in Fort street yesterday, ami though the stores were closed, the sidewalk near The Star otliee was crowded with little chops ready for their feast. They began coining about (1 o'clock In the morning and amused themselves till dinner time by running races in to the side streets, playing tog, climb ing the staircase to see whot time it was, and returning to announce that it was only nine, or ten, or eleven. But when twelve o'clock arrived the ex citement wos intense, ond they then crowded the staircase and cheered. At 12:30 promptly they wero drawn up in line anil marched up Fort street, along King and up Nutmnu. to Love's bakery, where their feast awaited them. Tt was one continuous cheer us they approached the wished for ha ven. The band of sixty come two and two together, the smallest first. Each boy hod o ticket ond very tightly he clung to it, for no ticket, no dinner. Once inside there wos such a clatter of knives as made people on the side walk stop and look in. When the pig and tho turkeys arrived the assembly rose and go.o three cheers. Such plates were served out, ond there was lots of gravy and roast potatoes, and soft bread and poi ml libitum. What they could not eat the little chaps stowed away in their pockets. When the iced soda water and ginger beer came on, there was another irrond cheer. The mince pies, such big ones. caned lor the wildest enthusiasm and the boxes of candies raised u small riot. It was fun to see Mnnager Hoogs, the editor and other members of the stair, rushing round in the capacity of waiters, handing plates, cutting pies, and there wos one small mer chant who had to have his meat cut for him. He was such a mite of a waif. All were very happy and thorough ly enjoyed themselves, and to see them eujoving themselves was a great pleasure. I here was quite a number ot visitors to look on.

Blanche Bates is the Cause of More Gossip. A late dispatch says that the Blanche Bates mystery is deepening, The question ot whether or not she will leave I rawley and rejoin the Daly company is now agitating the Atlnn tie as well as the Paeitlc coast. That she is not to 1111 the part of Nerissa in the production of the .Merchant o Venice ut Daly's next Saturday nigh has been definitely ascertained, a Mobel Roebuck has just been billed for thut character. Ada Rehan ns sumes the role of Portia for the firs time. A curious fact in connection wit! this matter is that in Mine, Sans Gene which is to follow the Merchant o Venice, Miss Bates is cost for the port of IJueen Caroline. Daly, therefore appears to have "lent" Miss Bates to Frawley for some time in the future, but, ns before stated, the chnnccs are that she has no intention of ever re turning to Daly's company. F. CRAGIX OF NEW SYNDICATE TELLS OF PROSPECTS, The Gruee Capitalists Expect to Get to Work in 1899 Mnritime Compa ny May (Jive Up Before. NEW YORK, November 10. Mr. E. F. Cragiu of Chicago, who engineered the purchase of the concession for tho building of the Nicaragua canal, In the interest of the Grace syndicate, arrived here today on the steamer Al legheny, from (jreytown. Ho was accompanied by Colonel Bacon and .Mr. Evre, of the linn of lirace & Co., and a corps of civil engineers, belong ing to the corporation. Mr. Crngin says that the syndicate which he rep resents has full control of the bulki ng of the inter-oceanlc canal, and tho old grant, or Canleniis-Monocal con cession, for years held by u syndicate controlled by Warner Miller, has been cancelled. Mr, Crngin says: "This new deal is doted when the Warner Miller contract is supposed to end in lMit). I here is, however, a possibility that the Maritime Company will give ip the work when thev understand. the provisions of the new syndleato purchase. This may permit a cancel lation of the old contract in advance of the time set and that would tr'tvo us a chance to begin work immedi ately." "Will the purchase of the Niearagu- an government's steamboats, railways and natioifol lands by the Atlas, a British corporation, interfere in nny way with the concessions to the old Grace syndicate?" "Not in the least. The Atlas con tract specifically states that there will be no interference witli grants made by the government prior to or nfter purchase." Mr. Crngin, in closing, said that, tho route of the canal will not bo chang ed and that enough capital to com plete the work has already been sub scribed. PROMINENT ENGAGEMENT.
