Countess Olgn, tho beautiful Russian woman who, some years ago, on ac count of her trouble, excited the sym pathy ot the whole civilized world, Is in Honolulu. She is ut 11 prominent hotel, where she is living quietly and receiving only u few friends. Ah is well known she is now the wife of an American news paper man, and has borne only his name since her marriage about ten years ago. The Countess is a benutiiui woman, and haH the bearing of a princess. She has n most pleasant face, save for a sad, hollow smile which perhaps re ilects the troubles of the. past; It is said that she frets a greut-deaf when nlone. ithal she is devoted to her husband and child and loves her new home in the States. The ladv is visiting Honolulu partly for health, and partly for sight-Seeing. She bus never been here before. Since her arrival, however, she has been lUite Indisposed and has, as yet, seen verv little of the city. There are those in Honolulu who re member the sad history of the coun tess. She was young, beautiful, prominent and beloved at St. Peters burg. Her life was cast with the court, both by blood and by political preferment. There she cam'? to wield an inlluence tliat was irit up 10 ine crown. The storv of a suitor for her has a parallel in a well-known play staged here several times. She refused the proposals of the oflicial. He had great power and turned bitterly upon her. She was accused of conniving with the nihilists and furnishing them money. Siberia stared her in the face. It was at this nick of time that sin- was rescued and spirited across the border into (ierinany. There she hud friends of inlluence and they succeed ed in getting her through to England. in London she was joined by ner par ents and the trio came to America. Ml the wnv she was tracked and watched constantly by Russian spies. Her refuge was finally a middle vves- rii eitv. There she lived with her pnrcnts'in retirement.

The number ot bi cycles used by custom house employes and by persons having business at the custom house is so great that before the present arrangement they used to be piled up in the entranco way to the great danger of soiling the gowns of ladies trying to wend their vny through the mass of muddy wheels, And when the curb in front of the building was used carriages could not drive up.

Special Meeting Will be Held Tomor row to Consider the Question The Need has lleconie Imperative. A meeting of the Chamber of Com merce has been called for tomorrow to take into consideration the question of wharf facilities, and how best to present the urgent need of increased wharf room to secure what is needed. The increased traflic of the Islands in itself requires an Increase of wharf facilities. Ever since the transports began to arrive, anil the numerous cargoes of coal for the United States government there has been a jam at the wharves amounting sometimes to a blockade. Coal vessels have been obliged to lie in the stream for days at a time. And even Island steamers have in some cases been obliged to wait two days for a berth. Hut the increased shipping due to the war has not been the only factor. With the development of the sugar industry and particularly with the in crease of pumping works on the plan tations, the use of coal has largely in creased, requiring more shipping and more wharf room. With the beginning of the sug-ir shipping season attention is called acutely to the subject. Without in creased facilities it is said seriops loss will be inflicted on the business'in terests of the community. The com panies operating Island steamers are already, it is said, feeling the crumped facilities that exist. The United States has taken that part of the water front beyond the Pacific Mail wharf, so that additional facilities will have to be made in oth er directions.- One diilleulty that confronts any at tempted solution is the uncertainty ,)s to what sovereignty the title to 'the water front will be vested in. If the United States takes it, improvements will have to wait congressional action. It may be. however, and the opinion seems to be widely entertained, thnt the title will bp vested in the Terri tory of Hawaii. Tn that case the local government can proceed with plans that can be gotten ready as soon as' the question of title is settled. - The Chamber of Commerce will probably put into concrete and tangi ble fonn the pressing needs of in creased wharf room top-ether with suggestions as to the physical plans that will best meet the needs, in order to have the subject brought up promptly before whatever sovereign ty shall have the duty of supplying the need. FORMA LLY INSTALLED. RUSSIAN" SECT PROPOSED AS LABORERS. Cunada Takes Five Thousand ot Them and' Distributes Them Among Her Many Fruitful Farms. Commissioner Mursden proposed In a letter to, the 'Planters' Association that laborers on the plantations might be found in Russia from what was called the "Quakers," though that Is not really. .their name, the proper so briquet being the Dukhobortsia sect, which means "Warriors of the Spirit," The Canadian government according to a recent number of the Loudon Times, is taking 5,000 of this sect and distributing them among the farms of Canada, where they will meet with u climate as vigorous as their own. So if the. Planters desire to obtain tills la bor they should be up and doing. The 5,000 "warriors of the spirit" who go to Canada will arrive there either In .lanuary or February. There is no reason why Russian peasants should not do well on our plantations. Though exposed to great extremes of cold, they are also expos ed to tremendous extremes of heat. Working In the wheat fields on the immense flats of Eastern Russia in midsummer and at reaping time is far greater labor than any of our plantations Involve. The heat of the tropics in Hawaii is as nothing to the" still heat of Eastern Russia, where the sun blazes with such fierceness that the crop is sown and garnered within the space of some four mouths. These "warriors of the spirit" are one of flic many mystic sects of the Slavic race. They are sober, earnest, chaste and devoted to their particular form of religion. It is a curious thing that the Russian mind runs to mysti cism and the number of sects that have arisen in spite of the determina tion of the main government that all of "Holy Russia" should be orthodox, lly its action in persecuting such sects the Russian government drives some of its best citizens out of the country. If .Mr. Mnrsden's 'proposal is listen ed to favorably a very valuable and earnest addition to our population will ue mane. .

Kerr's big Queen street store is one of the most attractive sights iu the city. A globe steam valve, six inches in diameter, burst at the electric light works about 10 o'clock this morning, and several men working in the neigh borhood feel that they had a narrow escape. When the explosion occurred the shop was filled with smoke. Superin tendent Hoffman's first order was to see that no one was hurt. This was done. All the men had escaped inju ry. The steam was then shut oft from the boiler. Examination reveal ed the fact that the valve had crack ed from top to bottom. It is suppos ed that it had a defect in it which could not be detected by the naked eye. The valve Is made of iron. Had it diattered. which it might hove done. the effect would have been similar to the explosion of a -field shell, and someone must surely linre been kill- d or severely in hired. Power was ofT in town for half fin hour on account of the accident. An other valve was inserted in place of ine inirsted one. OPEN TO CONVICTION.
