They are instructive and humorous and the audience cannot suppress a laugh. Wherever these pictures have been shown they roused the greatest enthu siasm and in Miss Clifton they have a genuine singing star whose voice is sweet and well adapted to this particu lar line of work. The pictures illus trating the songs as well as those which move are colored in the "most realistic manner. The tickets arc priced at from flfteeu cents for the gallery to seventy-five for a seat In one of the private boxes and they are for sale at Wall, Nichols Co. A GOOD YEAR. Continued from Page One.) hedging at present in preparation tor the payment of taxes. As the result there Is little money on hand for loans and considerable mones is beiitg im ported by the banks. "This condition should not last long, however, and there should bo an abundance of available funds for loan-j lug purposes by July. There Is enough I money here now for general circula- tion and were it not for the taxes wnlGY have to be paid this month there would be no need of Importations. "Two of the factors which have tended to maite money very much easi er here, have been in connection with Kihel and Waialua plantations.' Through the sale of the Kihel stocic some $375,000 which has been tied up for a good many years has been avail able and many who have borrowed on this stock have been able fo meet their loans and have released a great deal of money. The payment of a dividend by Waialua, which has never before paid, will be a great factor, as tho money here has been tied up so long without any returns that Its coming at this time will be specially, felt. "The conditions all over the Unit ed States are much better than they were and the country banks in particu lar report good gains. The only com plaints to be heard come from the banks In the big cities. Even here it la noticeable that the cash reserves are being kept up much better than usual. Almost all the larger banks have In creased their cash from about 25 per cent to about 30 per cent. The National City Bank of New York, which normal ly has carried about 25 per cent now is carrying 40 per cent, which you can see is quite an increase and Is con servative to an extreme. "The spending of Federal funds in this Territory is .being felt nnd will continue to be felt in even greater de gree and will help conditions here. Where in other parts of the United States tho fuct that this Is a presi dential year is being noticeable .tad is tightening up money, it -ill have no effect here and this should bo the most prosperous community In the1 United States in the coming tall." SPEECH BY PRESIDENT. tContinued from Pagone.) Swede and the Hollander, had found permanent havens on- the North At lantic seacoast. For centuries our sev eral civilizations grew each in its own way, but each sundered from the oth ers. Now wo are growing together. "More and more in the future we shall each give to and get from the others, not merely things of material value, but things that are of worth for tho Intellectual and spiritual welfare of all of us In the century that has passed the development of North Am erica has, on the 'whole, proceeded faster than the development of South America; but In the century that has now opened I believe that no other part of tho world will see such extra ordinary development in wealth, in population, in all that makes for pro gress, as will be seen from the north ern boundary of Mexico through all Central and South America; and I can assure you that the. people of this na tion look with the most profound sat isfaction upon the great growth that has already taken place in the coun tries which, you represent a growth alike in political stability and In the material well-being which can only come when there Is political stability. "Our battle fleet has just finished its trip around South America, and I wish to thank the rulers ami the peoples of South America and of Mexico for the generous and courteous hospitality which has been shown this lleet on ev ery possible occasion throughout the trip. "in conclusion, let me speak of an other trip, made a couple of years ago by the Secretary of State, Elihu Hoot, the first time in our history tho Am erican Secretary of State, during his term of odlce, left the country to visit certain other nations. Mr. Root made tho complete tour ot South America, traversed Central America, and after wards visited Mexico. Ho was every where received with the heartiest greeting, a greeting which deeply touched our people, and I wish to say once more how appreciative we are of the reception tendered him. "His voyage was unique In character and In value. It was undertaken only because we citizens of this Republic recognize that our interests are more closely intertwined with the Interests of the Other peoples of this continent than with those of any other nations. I believe that history will say that though wo have had other great Secre taries of State, we have had none greater than Elihu Hoot; and that though in his high oillco he has done much for the good of his nation and of mankind, yet that his greatest achieve ment has been the success which has come as the result of his devoted labor to bring closer together all the repub lics of the New World, and to unite them in the effort to work valiantly for .our common betterment, for the material and moral welfare of all who dwell In the Western Hemisphere." THE LOG-BOOK TACOMA, April 30 Suucessful ex periments in wireless telephony are be ing carried on, by-Walter Sutter, chier engineer of the tug Fearless, and James Watmer, who Is also greatly In terested in wireless. These yonug men have been studying both wireless telegraphy and telephony for some time, and they nre more than pleased at results. One day last "week they succeeded In telephoning to each other, one being on the Fearless ami the other ashore, about a quarter of si mile apart. They used twenty-live volts for the experi ment. They are not yet satisfied wltn results but intend to continue experi menting until they can tako at a much greater distance. In carrying on their work Sutter and Watmer have been using aeroplane kites, and this explains tho mystery of the alr-shlp which has excited so many good Tacomans during' the past six weeks or two months. Tho young scientists disclalni any. intention .of creating a sensation brycauslng an xiety among thosewho feared that the Japanese wore on the .verge of Invad ing Puget Sound.., "-. . To secure " higher aerials for their wireless experiments Sutter and Wat mer have been using two live-foot kites. At present they are construct ing one that is eight feet in length and much larger than any they havo yet used. Colored lanterns were attached to the kites for the purpose of keeping them in view. Tneso lights arc what caused such a sensation in various parts of theclty where tho "airship" was sighted. Part of tile time wires were used and electric lights were suspended from tho aeroplanes, but usually lanterns were used, as the weight of wire was too heavy for the kites to, support. The mystery of the airship moving is explained when it ti known that the kites were often flown from the Fear less while the tug was moving up Sound. In the Narrows mas been a popular place for the experimenters to send up the "airship. ' Once the kite was seen above the Pacific Coast dock, directly above the Fearless. The steamer Flyer was coming in and tho passengers gazed in amazement at the ship, never suspecting that It was at tached to the tug lying peacefully In her berth. The aeroplane frequently attained a height of over 2,000 feet. The Fearlessmis equipped with tho Massle wireless system and Operator Sutter Is ab'e to send and receive mes sages over a long distance. WANTS! STATIONS TO PROPOSAL OF WIRELESS FROM HERE TO CONNECT WITH FIJI AND SAMOA. Father Emmanuel Rougier, who ar rived in tho S. S. Aorangl, and who has a freehold to Fanning Island, a thousand nnd more miles to the south ward, has suggested to the Wireless Telegraph Company ot Honolulu that it establish on Fanning Island a pow erful long distance wireless station, and another at Pago Pago, Samoa, but the local company Is at present too much occupied perfecting a long dls tance station at Kahuku, this island, for telegraph to tho mainland States and, besides, there does not seem to be any money back of Rougier's scheme, as convenient as it would bo to spark to Australia by way ot Fanning and Samoa. Tho spars and rigging for tho 250 foot wireless mast at Kahuku are be ing sent out on tho railroad today, the spars occupying three flat cars and be ing rigged on a pivot for rounding curves. TRENOR STARTS OUT. J. D. Trenor, tho immigration offi cial from Washington, began his. tour of all the sugar plantations today. T. II. Petrlo of Castle & Cooke went to Kahuku with Mr. Trenor. Captain Otwell when asked this af ternoon, If there had been a strlko at Pearl Harbor on account of work be ing required of tho men on Sundays replied: "Tho whole thing comes from a lot of disgruntled men who came up hero and' misrepresented things. Somo men havo been work ing on Sundays, because they wero asked if they would work, and a num ber volunteered. Tho men who havo mado all tho talk about the matter, havo never worked on Sundays, and thoy aro no', obliged to, although they can If they wish." SOUTHWARD W. C. PEACOCK DEFIES THE AU THORITIES TO PROOF OF VIO LATION 11 Y HIS COMPANY. LI11UE, Kauai, May D. Tho Kauai Liquor Commissioners held a meeting last Monday, called at tho Instance of tho inspector who had several matters to bring boford tho Board. Tho Secretary Informed tho Board that in conformity with a resolution passed at tho March meeting ho had written to tho secretaries of tho boards on the other Islands In regard to tho Issuance of tho fourth class license. This is tho one ot ?5 for tho privilege of manufacturing wino and disposing df tho output. Tho Oahu secretary wroto that thero had been no application for such a license in that county but that It had been de cided to follow tho proceedings pros cribed for tho Issuance- ot tho othor licenses In case ono should bo pre sented. On Maul tho board had pro ceeded as tho law prescribes for tho other licenses but in addition had stipulated that tho product was not to bo sold In quantities smaller than one gallon. This arrangement seem ed to appeal to tho Kauai board and will be followed in case It should havo to act upon such an application. Inspector Smith informed tho Board that his health had been very poor lately and that ho . proposed to seek to recuperate by taking a trip to tho mainland and bo absent about two months. Ho tendered his resignation in case tho Board should dccldo to nut In a man permanently instead of x substitute during his absence. Tho Inspector aso informed tho Board that ho had taken samples of tho wine, carried for tho general trade by tho several licensees, and had sent them to tho government laboratory to be examined, fho an alyses received from the chemist prove all tho samples to represent fair wine without adulterations. Ho also in formed tho Board that ho had found that some of the dealers, who had agreed not to solicit In the' camps, had found a way to at least partially try to copo with tho favored Hono lulu dealers In that they had loft or der lists printed in Japanese at tho different camps. Tho Board did not seo that this constituted any breach ot the agreement as there was no solicitation on tho circulars but sim ply a printed order list. Inspector Smith ruformed the Board that ho had been notified that,, tho Kauai Wino and Liquor Co. hitT vio lated its license In that it hair- sold liquor on Sunday. Mr. Falrchild want ed to know whether thero was any other evidence than simple hearsay to support tho statement. Deputy Sheriff Crowell responded and stated that tho business in question on Feb ruary 23 had sold to a Japancso six bottles whisky, two demijohns sake and ono dozen beer. Tho Board told Air. Crowell that tho complaint was his and asked whether he had any proof. At this point W. C. Peacock Informed tho Board that ho was in terested In tho Kauai Wine and Liquor Co. and that he held tho proxies of all tho stockholders and In that capa city challenged Mr. Crowell to put himself under oath and prove any kind of mismanagement In that con cern. Tho Board hero took a hand in tho discussion and soon camo to tho conclusion that tho matter did not rest with tho commissioners but with tho sheriff and tho county at torney. According to information bi ought forth In tho discussion both these parties had been Informed of the occurrence but had taken no ac tion In tho matter probably on ac count of weak evidence. Tho Com missioners considered the tlmo for action of their part to arrivo first when actual breach of tho conditions of tho license had been proved In court, and thoreforo declined to con sider tho nmttcr further. A discussion arose whether It would bo necessary or not to secure tho con- sent of tho property holders for tho purposo of a renewal. As tho law seemed to bo rather hazy on the sub ject It was decided to ask the At torney General for a ruling on tho question and tho secretary was In structed to write accordingly. Four applications were handed In asking for a renewal of so many li censes now In existence, viz: for Ka paa Wine Co., Walmea Wino Co., C AV. Spitz and Kauai Wino and Liquor Co. all of which were ordered adver tised. Garden Island. PASSENGERS. Booked. Per S. S. Hllonian, May 19, for San Francisco Miss E. A.

Tho now High School building will bo named after our lato President William McKlnley, notwithstanding objections which wero made by Super intendent of Public instruction Bab- bitt at tho recent meeting of tho 1 Board of Education. In speaklnjc of! tho matter thlB morning, In response ' to a question from a Star reporter! Judge Dolo said: ! "It was decided long ago, while Mr. Babbitt was away that tho school should ho named after President Mc Klnley and thero has been no change mado. Tho gift to tho school, from tho McKInloy Memorial committee. with the conditional feature that tho building should bo named after Its wishes was accepted by tho Board of Education, which is the supremo an- thorlly, as I understand tho matter, before Mr. Babblttt returned from his tilp to tho Coast. Ho merely took tho opportunity ot voicing his per sonal opinion, which had no weight as tho Board of Education had al ready accepted tho gift." Both Judge Dolo and C. M.
