Hears Her Plebeinn Husband's Nome
Persecuted 'Woman Part of Her
History.
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. It was there,
too, that she met and married her husband.
l'he Countess was not aware ol the
fnct that she had friends here. A few
davs ago she met an old acquaintance

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

CHAMRER OF COMMERCE CALLED
TO ACT.
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.

AN ATTRACTIVE SIGHT.
The millinery goods displayed at
L. R. 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.
