Hoffschlaeger Co., Limited Pioneer Wine and Liquor House CHURCH STRF.HT i SUCCOll IS SENT. 4 Mnrston Cnmpbcll Urines Money For Ronds nnd llrldgos. Mnrston Cnmpbcll, Assistant Super intendent of Public Works, nrrived in the city by the Kinau last week, remaining one day. While here he did several things to tunkc the hearts of the Hilo road board glad. He saw what was needed in the way of public works nnd loosened the purse strings to a degree that will change the face o( affairs in this District unless Dole gets back from Washington in time to block the deal as he did once in the past. Mr. Campbell came here with Instruc tions to use his judgment cartc-blauchc in ordering work to be done. As 11 result there is nn advertisement in today's Tkhiunk calling for bids for the construction of cement gutters on both sides of Wnianuniiuc street to the sen. These drains will be put in at once nud must be made according to plans nnd specifications which guarantee their capacity for handling any kind of n del uge that may be sent. The plati9 were prepared In the office of the Superin tendent of Public Works nud call for the best style of gutter. It has also been de cided to lay the 10-inch water mains on Wnianuenue street in place of the present pipe stems which are inadequate. The work of rcmacadamiziug the street will Hot be done until this main is put down, thus avoiding the necessity of tearing up the newly made street to lay water pipe. Another important improvement order ed was the widening of the road to 16 feet, leading into Hakalau gulch. A new-girder bridge has been ordered for Kukuau stream on Volcano street. The new bridge will be the width of the street, 60 feet. New abutments will be put in for the bridge at Pilkihac stream at the foot of the first hill on the Hamakun road. In nddition to these specific improve ments, it will lie recommended that ft, 800 per mouth be authorized for the balance of the year for general road repairs in the District of South Hilo. This sum on top of what comes into this fund from the regular local taxes will give the road Iward something over the sum of $3,000 per mouth with which to remove traces of the late storm and past neglect. The outlook on the face of things is good and unless tinforsccn vetoes lob up to crush the hopes of Hilo people, a few of our ragged edges will soon go glim mering. . MAIttill RAINFALL.

Cotillion Club Scores Another Soclnl Success Tuesday Evening. Snickcrsvillc was taken by storm Inst Tuesday night by the members of the Hilo Cotillion Club nnd their friends. Snickcrsvillc society gave n ball nnd in vited the Cotillion Club enmnsse. Snick crsvillc being a rural community, the so ciety folks of Hilo went dressed in cos tumes calculated to harmonize with the rustic environments of the village where the festive dance was given. Arriving at the place of the dance the merrymakers found they had costumed themselves correctly. The arrangements for the dancers had been made behind, the high board fence which runs by the, road leading to the village grocery at Snickcrsvillc. The scene was a merry 011c in the well beaten lot, in one corner of which was the well and the "Old Oak en liuckct" drinnlmr over it. In another corner not far off was the chicken coops nnd the calves nnd the young ducks nil disturbed with the cascade of boisler ousticss coming from the city crowd. On one side of the enclosure, seated high on two cider barrels sat two musicians, one pumping the life out of a wailing accor dion, the other torturing a shrieking fiddle. The back stoop of the village store stood diagonally across from the calf shed, and here the boisterous dancers were wont to gather in scrambling groups. A For the matron or Snickcrsvillc nail made hundreds of pumpkin pics and the village postmaster was dispensing peanuts with prodigal liberality. A waving cane field, adjacent to the High Uoard fence, lustlcd in the wind as the night advanced. Snickcrsvillc wai in Spreckels hall. That prosaic four walled-room had been transformed into n typical cross roads village under the clever ami nrtislic talent of the Dccorntiou Committee head ed by that prince of entertainers I. Castle Ridgway. He was nbly assisted in this work by Mrs. Hnycs, Miss Mnud Check, Miss Mnry Cnunrio, and Messrs. Guriicy, K. S. Walker. Frank Winter. Ridgwny posters decorated the walls nud on one side of the hall n canvas was hum; repre senting n tight board fence. This was covered with warnings to the merry makers, nud numerous advertisements. Scenes from High Life ns conceived by the Snickcrsvillc artist, adorned the premises nil nbout. At one end of the hall n raised platform had been erected over which hung this sign: "Hey Rube: You ens, who nint prop erly drest, has got tcrsct on these benches per order of the Kommlttee." Those who obeyed this order were; Mcsdamcs,Aitcrbach,Leobetistciii,Koss, Scott, Ilowman, Cnuario, Guard, Lyman, Severance, Tracy, Willfong, Wilson, Peck, Reed nud Schocn. The Misses Eaton (2), Arrott, Ivy Richardson ami Potter (2). Messrs. W. Raiding, Baldwin, Hayes, Jackson, Rcid, Rice, Souz.i, Stone, Wachs, Scott, Lelllond, I). 15. Cruzan, Dell, Ilowman. Furneaux, Tracy. Girvcit Peck, Ross, L. Schocn, A. C. Ridgway and Auerbnch. The above named were guests of the Cotillion Club, who in spite of the admonitions of friends had failed to attire themselves in a style satisfactory to the rigid requirements of Snickcrsvillc fashion plates. When the accordion had been warmed up its voice ceased to creak and the dan cing proceeded to the most charming mel ody. The fiddle thought of old times and did not miss n single note after the ball opened. During the progress of the dance, the auctioneer nud stock dealer of Sinckcrsville hung up a price bulletin from the village stock exchange. Quo tations taken at random show that the market is on the sag : "Corns, 110 de mand; turnips, coming up; chickens, rather flighty; butter growing stronger; calves, n little weak; young men, fresh; girls, live demand; mothers, holding their own; malt, rising; yeast, also rising; advice, cheap no demand." The calf on exhibition was the choice of Dr. Rcid's herd, loaned for the occasion. The chickens were stolen from neigh boring lien roosts. The array of costumes worn by the dancers was killing. There were brigands, bowery toughs, highway robbers and tramps among the men. Among the ladies the range of characters represented was even more varied and vast. They were cunning cute and catchy. Those on the floor, and the characters they repre sented were as follows: Mrs. Raiding, milkmaid; Mrs. Ilnldwin, country girl; the Misses Canario, bowery girls; Mrs. Gueruey, colonial dame; the Misses Hapai, country girls; Miss Maude Hansen, little old lady; Mrs. Hayes, bride; Mrs. Haley, shepherd girl; the Misses Peck (3), country maids; Miss Klvira Richardson, country girl with social aspirations; Mrs. Reid, country L'irl; Mrs. Rice, rural milkmaid: Mrs. Sedgwick, simpleton; the Mrs. Winter (2), colonial dames; Mrs. Holmes, col onial dames; Miss Severance, puritan in lid, Mrs. Walker, bowery tough; Mrs. Richards, fashionable farmer wife; Miss Mahleu, puritan maid, Miss Neitmau, farmci's laughter.

Schocn, retired cow boy. When the time for rest and refreshment came, the Judges, Mrs. Clark and Messrs. Auerbnch and Furneaux ap proached their unenviable task ot decid ing who hail won the prizes. After close deliberation they awarded first ladies' prize to Mrs. Hayes; first gentleman's prize to Frank L. Winter. Special and honorable mention was given to Mrs, Walker, Mrs. Sedgwick, Mrs. Cruzan, Frank L. Winter, Harold, Cruzan and J. Castle Ridgway. The prize given Mrs. Hayes was n basket of carrots. Mr. Winter was given an old umbrella and a pair of carpet suppers. Refreshments, consisting of ham sand wiches, pumpkin pie and doughnuts were served by Mesdaiues Ridgway, Cruzan, Severance, Furneaux and Clark. before resuming the dance J. A. Scott was called upon to make a speech. Mr. , Scott nrose and asked that 11 collection be taken for the benefit of the Hilo Hospital. The response was generous, the amount raised being f 19.50. After the interim the dance started ngaiii with the Virginia Reel and was kept up until a bile hour. A delightful feature of the evening was the rendition of the "Old Oaken bucket" by Messrs. Prouty, I lowland, Jackson and Walker. ANNOUNCEMENT of arrival of NEW STOCK m. HABERDASHER CLOTHIER H HATTER Tho l'ostinnstcrshlp. W.J. Madden, Postoflice Inspcctorwho arrived by the Kinau with L.T. Kenakc, when seen by n Tkhiunk reporter yester day moriiint', was very much displeased with the statement in the Herald which credited him with having come to Hilo to transfer the office of Postmaster from L. Severance to Mr. Madeira. JIc said: "That paper is wrong. There will prob ably be no change here for some time. All I know is what the people of Hilo know. President Roosevelt has sent the name of W. J. Madeira to the Senate for confirmation as Postmaster at Hilo. This of course is tantamount to an appoint ment. If confirmed, the nctunl transfer of the office can luirdly occur before two mouths. "As I said our presence here hns noth ing to do with the change. I am here to see if I cannot suggest improvements and alterations in your postoffice arrange ments which will facilitate business and accommodate the public. I shall recom mend a new equipment of lock boxes and other things which w ill be absolutely first class." Mr. Madden nud Mr. Kenakc will re turn to Honolulu today. RESIGNATION' HEAD. J. A. tiruznn Lnvg Down Chnrgc Enstor Sunilny. Kov. Ills After the opening exercises at the First Foreign Church last Sunday, Rev. Mr. Cruzan tendered his resignation as pastor of that church to take effect August 15. The rcsignatiati was couched in the fol lowing language: To the Officers nnd Members of the First Foreign Church ot Hilo, Hawaii. Dear Bristhrun aw Sisthrs: I hereby present my resignation of the pastorate of your church, the same to take effect on the fifteenth day of August next, at the end of my fourth year of service. This is a matter to which I have given long and earnest consideration, and my action is positive nud final. The long coutinued 111 health of Mrs. Cruzan nud the necessity for her of u change of cli mate, the lack of desirable kchool facilities in Hilo for my sons, and other reasons of weight, have led tuc to the conclusion that the wise nud judicious course for me to take is to surrender the important work you have entrusted to inc. In nskiug that the pastoral relation which has existed for nearly four years be terminated, I wish to express, both for Mrs. Cruzan and myself, our grateful appreciation of the kindnesses you have shown to us, and for the measure of co operation with which you have sustained us lu our worK. I trust thnt you may be divinely guided in your choice of my successor, and that I the Master may speedily send you an under Shepherd to take up this important work and lead you in winning great victories in His name and in the cause of righteousness. I remain yours with regard, J. A. CRU.AN. Hilo, Hawaii, March 29, 1902. After the regular st-rvice next Sunday there w ill be a meeting of the Hoard to consider the acceptance of the resigna tion. llllo's Postollhx. If W. I. Madeira comes to Hilo us post master, he will bring with him a thorough experience in postal matters. He is now Assistant Postmaster at Honolulu. lie will be able to do more for the Hilo Postofiico through political and depart mental acquaintance, than any other per son who was available. The removal of Mr. Severance will be heard of with regret by his tunny per sonal friends. He has held the office many years and if removed, it will not be lor abuse of a public trust. The reason and the only reason is that bavinir formed habits of business through long years of service in an isolated office, it was out of the question lor n man of such training to catch the snap mid energy nud method of the Postoffice Department, which is driven by 11 dynamic force of stupendous business energy. And the Hilo Postoffice being ol the second class, is in direct con nection with the President whose voltage is rather high.
