Mr. Forbes who, assisted by several
other lively young Scots, gave fre

fling as it was wont to be performed
in the days of "auld lang syne."
The Scottish reels and other dances
that interspersed the long literary
and musical program were very
much appreciated, and made old
hearts young again, and young
hearts gay. Nearly everyone pres
ent sang or recited or in some other
special manner contributed to the
entertainment and hilarity of the
occasion. It is needless to say that
a liberal supply of the favorite

plenty of good things to eat and

During the progress of the enter
tainment, it was whispered about
that the birthday of John Watt,
the popular manager of Houokaa
plantation, was just beginning.
The anniversary spirit having been
thoroughly aroused, the crowd de
layed until Mr. and Mrs. Watt had
gone home, and then descended
upon the plantation residence in
force. Mrs. Watt being in the
secret, had gotten the victim off
safely to bed, so that the surprise
was as complete as could have
been desired, and the way Mr.
Watt was roused from his first nap
and toasted and roasted and other
wise disturbed for several hours
was an incident he is likely to re
member for many a birthday.
When the bagpipes began to
scream, and the drum to beat in
his parlor, accompanied by a var

Washington, Jnn. 16. It is
nearly a settled fact that Congress
will not pass a law at this session
providing for a Government cou-
structed cable in the Pacific. The
hearings that have been had upon
the question before the House and
Senate Committees have come
pretty near convincing a majority
of the members of the respective
committees that the best thing to
be done in the case is to let the
Commercial Cable Company, of
which John W. Mackay is the head,
go along nnd build its proposed
cable without interference from the
The .statements 111r.de by the re
presentatives of the Mackay com
pany have been so convincing that
they have come pretty near putting
a stop to all talk about a Govern
ment cable. The company declared
before the Senate committee this
week that if the Government does
not interfere with its plans it will
have its cable between San Fran
cisco and Honolulu laid and in
working order by December of the
present year, and perhaps the first
messages may be sent over it in
October or November. The cable
is now actually being built at the
rate of 136 miles a day at the Glas
gow cable works, where all of the j
great deep-water cables ol the world
have been built. By the end of 1
next month the cable will be going
forward at the rate of 160 miles a
month, and by the first ofthe sum
mer it will be completed, placed in
a cable ship and be ready for the
trip around the Horn. The com
pany also promises to have a com
pleted cable in operation to the
Philippines within two years from
now about half the time it would
take the Government to do the
same work.
The company also proposes that
it will make the public rate be
tween San Francisco and Manila
just one-half of the present rate via
Europe. It will give the United
States Government a rate amount
ing to one-half of the public rate,
making the rate on Government
messages one-quarter of the pres
ent Manila-American rjite. The
company promises at any time after
the cable has been completed to
turn it over to the Government at
the actual cost price, or'if that be
not satisfactory to sell it to the
Government at any price agreed
upon by arbitrators appointed for
determining its value. The com
pany says that its only purpose in
wanting to go ahead is that it can
build cables for 15 per cent less
than any other company in the world,
and in its business of operating
cables and telegraph lines a cable
across the Pacific, owned either by
the Government or by itself, would
be ot great advantage to it, as it
would to all other American tele
graph companies.
The company places its plans up
on such high ground that after the
, ownership Pacific cable bill, said
j that he would be obliged to re-
I noutice Government ownership in
the face of an offer of this sort, and
, immediately he withdrew his own
.hill from consideration.
Mjsloi'ious Hour Conclave.
Brussels, Jan. ly. Dr. I.eyds,
the European repiesentative of the
Transvaal, and the Boer delegates
met again today at some mysterious
rendezvous. Dr. Leyds now de
nies himself to everybody. It is
asserted that Dr. Ktiyper, the Dutch
Premier, on his return to The
Hague from London, had a confer
ence with Mr. Wolmarans, one of
the Boer delegates, who sent
another delegate to consult with
Mr. Krticgcr, and that another
meeting will be held next Monday.
In spite of the Boer denials, a
strong feeling exists here that some
peace movement is afoot between
Great Britain and the Boer dele
gates, but there is difficulty in ar
riving at any acceptable basis of
terms, Mr. Krucger and Dr. Lcyds
being reluctant to commit them
selves. It is declared in Boer cir
cles here that a number of English
men, supposed to be officials ofthe
British Government, arrived at The
Hague under assumed names last
Saturday and were later visited and
entertained at dinner by the British
Minister there.
London, Jan. 20. The Times
has received a cablegram from Dr.
Kuyper, the Dutch Premier, in,
which he declares he has held no
conference with the Boer delegates,
and that he could not induce them
to draw tin terms of peace, ns ho
knew their credentials did not allow
them to do so.
Colonel Kitchener Inspected l'enrl
Hurbor Lochs Tuesday.
Considerable significance is at
tached to the visit which Colonel C.
Kitchener, brother of Lord Herbert
Kitchener, paid to the Ewa planta
tion last week. The first thing
the Colonel did after the Gaelic ar
rived at Honolulu from San Fraucis
sco, was to inquire if there wercsome
sugar plantations running. He ex
pressed a desire .to visit one. It
was suggested that he go to the
Ewa plantation, whereupon the
officer took the first train to that
All of his time at Ewa was not
occupied however with the inspec
tion of the plantation mill. He is
reported to have taken a boat and,
accompanied by two strangers,
been rowed about Pearl Harbor
where he appeared to be taking
soundings of the water. lie also
secured photographs of the sites for
the new naval station. Whether
the data and pictures were taken
for his own use or for other pur
poses is unknown. A number of
people arc inclined to attribute his
inspection of the harbor to some
official orders, although it is hardly
likely that he could have learned
much of importance during his
rather brief inspection.
Its Fume Spreading.
A certain portion of Hilo Ha
waiians have started an organiza
tion of a semi-political nature, with
a view of branching out and organ
izing clubs in every district and
precinct of the big island first, and
ultimately throughout the group,
providing they are successful in en
listing the sympathy of the elec
torate. Governor John T. Baker
is its leading exponent, assisted by
Senator Jno. T. Brown and others.
It is called the Aloha Aiua Society
and its tenets are to inculcate econ
omy in politics as well as in busi
ness and social life, and to pick out
nothing but the best material
among the Ilawaiians for the be
stowal of legislative honors and of
political preferment, without any
regard to whatever their politics
may be. An initiation fee of $2 is
demanded of anyone wishing to
join. Among its members, of
whom there are now over thirty,
are men prominent in nearly all
walks of life in that town, and even
including the offspring of the much
hated missionaries. Independent.
