The plans for the new building at Ililo Hoarding School are gradually assuming shape under the architects supervision. Preliminary work 011 the grounds is already being done. The old building erected in 1856, which has served its pur pose for forty-uveii years was moved back during the Christmas vacation to n point about one bundled feel in the rear of the original site Here it will con tinue to be used for class-room purposes until the new building is completed. After which the plan is to use it for a work shop for the manual training de partment. The sum subscribed toward the build ing fund is not sufficient as yet to warrant the immediate proceeding with the erec tion of the new building, but the hearty co-operation met with, gives confidence that within a short time the work will begin. Those in charge of the work, and those who have so liberally con tributed want to see the work go on. There ure a large number of people who intend to help in this improvement to the town. Such help is needed now. The carrying out of these plans is only waiting until the funds are sufficient. The aid of all is earnestly solicited at the present time in order that this work may be accomplished. Per S. S. Enterprise, mutton mid drawn j poultry cold storage.

McKcu.ie was born under n lucky star and whichever way he turns he has never lost. Just now, owing to business interests on the Coast and the necessity of living closer to his family of growing children, he has severed his connection with the Volcano Stables and Transportation Company and will leave for the Mainland about April 1. Lest this change might appear to Mr. McKeu zic to be not for the best, Dame Fortune played a high card for him. He had word by the Inst tiiail that a gold mine in which he owns a big-block of stock, has turned out to be a bonanza. The devel opment done last summer proved the mine n uayer and McKeuzic's interest is sufficient to guarantee him a good income from that source alone. Mr. McKcuzie has had under consider ation for some time the proposition of returning to Napa, where his children live, and engaging in the general trade of hay, grain and stock shipping ontiu Coast. He will establish business head quarters in San Francisco. He will make 11 specialty of shipping feed stuff and stock to Hawaii and the Philippine Islands. Mr. McKeuzie is not leaving the Islands on account of any dissatis faction with Ililo or Its future business prospects. He believes in Hllo and will retain his interests here. He will not sell his shares in the Volcano Stables, an institution which he has managed with ability and success for the past two years. He expects to make frequent visits to Ililo in the future. Mr. McKcuzie assumed the manage ment of the Volcano Stables April I, 1901, and during the past two years has raised the establishment to a prosperous condition in spite of general dull times. The company owns over thirty head more of horses than it did two years ago. The rolling stock is in the best of condi tion. The stage lines of the company reach from Homiapo, Kau, to Kawaihae in Kohala. The harness shop, black smith and paint shops with a thorough mechanic at the head of each department are showing splendid increase in busi ness. , In his two year's residence in Hllo Mr. McKenzic'has made a host of busi ness and personal friends who will regret to learn of his contemplated departure. WANTED HIS HEWAKI). A 11 tone Oak lYds That Up Hits Heen Uiincoed. Autouc Oak, who claims the right to the reward for the capture of Fidele Tor res, the escaped convict, writes the Tri dunk the following account of the out come of his service to the community: "To Tim TiUiiUNit: The two police officers who helped me to capture Fidele Torres received the reward for his cap ture, instead of myself whom it was said would be entitled to the reward. After recognizing Torres and following him up, I was three times within a distance of twenty feet of him in a cane field, rutiuiug'a risk of being cut up as Torres was well armed. I proceeded to the police station where two police officers were placed at my disposal. I led these to the place where Torres was hidden. Arriving there, I indicated to the police man where Torres was, saying 'There is the man.' "Torres made no resistance and after being haudcufled he was kicked near the left eye. Now, for this great achieve ment these policemen receive fso reward. They certainly were not entitled to it, but the money was kept in the gang. The Sheriff did not expect fro j me nnv present like the one he received from his men the other day. The Sheriff excuses himself by saying 'If Mr. Oak was en titled to the reward why did he not per sonally capture and bring to the station the escaped prisoner.' The SherifT him self would probably want courage. "ANTONE OAK." Dock Work Progressing. The work of constructing the Ililo dock is progressing with despatch des pite the high winds and rough bay. F.

Hcmbers or Hllo Cotillion Club (lire Merry Colonial llnll. The Colonial ball, given last Monday evening at Spreckels hall in honor of the birth of George Washington win 11 social success and an artistic triumph. The officers of the Cotillion Club and the committees in charge of the various ar rangements have received congratulations from all sides. Those ill charge omitted no detaM in the line of their respective duties. The decorations were all on the Colonial order. White Ionic columns were erected 011 nil sides of the room. From capital to capital, there was sus pended a light strand of fern making n frici6 of beauty around the room. Por traits of the period, draperies and bric-a-brac adorned the walls. The decoration committee was us follows: Miss E. Peck, Miss I. Richardson, Miss II. Hapai, Mrs. Whltehouse, Mr. W. I. Madeira, Mr. Win. Weight, Mr. F. West, Mr, F. How land, Dr. M. Wachs, Mr. T. C. Ridgway. The guests were early to arrive and with their coming, costumes of the eigh teenth century mingled with the up to date fashion of the twentieth. The im portant event of the evening was the damping of the minuet. Twenty-four of Ililo's most graceful dancers had !ccn selected to appear in the dance in which Washington was so able to distinguish himself. Miss Elvira Richaadson did the drilling which was necessary to make this scene a success. That it was n suc cess is owing to her skill and persistence. Mrs. Tracy played the minuet at the Siano. The dancers led by Mrs. W. I. ladcira and Miss Ivy Richardson came iu from the side rooms. They were Mrs. Homer L. Ross and Geo. N. Day; Miss Haltie Hapai and C. N. Pronty Jr.; Mrs. E. D. Baldwin and E. C. Mellor; Mrs. A. A. McKenney and Ralph Holding: Miss Emily Peck and T. C. Ridgway: Miss Lilinoe Hapai and Dr. Milton Rice; Miss Harriet Huggins nud Ronald Kennedy; Mrs. W. I. Madeira and W. S. McLean; Miss Mabel Peck and A. II. Jackson; Mrs. Milton Rire and Tiios. Guard; Miss Frac Eaton and G. W. A. Hapai Jr. The dancing was frequently interrupted by outbursts of applause from the spec tators. The minuet over, the gcrman firoceeded merrily with everybody danc ng until long after midnight. The costuming was brilliant both 011 the part of the ladies and the gentlemen. Gentemen wore suits made of stuffs of every color. In pinks there were the following tints and hues: kiss of dawn, dying rose, kitten's tongue, bridal blush and cupid's feather. In the vivid colors there was the modem automobile red melting into the faint and misty hues of colonial days. Captain's-glory and Smoke-of-Vesuvius were popular among the duller tints. The ladies wore exquisite gowns of most exquisite fabriques. The tints and shades were delict ti and semi-meutal-fiuc as the very memories of our dear progenitors whose sons and daugh ters belong to Societies of the Revolution. The Colonial maids affected such colors as Eveuittg-mist-on-the-mountaius, fading hope and other pallid grays. Flight-of-the-lark and Faithful-shepherd blues made killing effects and you should have seen the Canary-tail yellows and Mount Vernon greens. The gowns were all of 1776 mode. Then the Coiffures and beauty patches, the way a modem girl can utilize the many conceits of her grandma, is amazing. The beauty patches were artistically revived at the Colonial ball. Not all people this day kiiow the meaning of beauty patches and this is quite essential to know. A dot about an inch below the left eye denotes fondness of adventure. A spot in the center of the left cheek announces that the wearer is engaged. A similar patch on the right cheek proclaims that the wearer is mar ried. Worn just below the right eye it spells audacity. Placed at the outer corner of the right eye it betokens an affectionate nature. Worn alluringly up on the upper lip conveys a meaning, un mistakable. On the brow, the patch de notes dignity, force and reserve; on the chin frivolity. So if one could only re member how patches were worn at the Colonial ball. SK1UT OF HUMAN li.'.llt. Ancient Kellcs Found Iu 11 Cure la Komi. A report was brought iu this week from Kona telling of some new ami in teresting discoveries iu the caves in Kea lakekua cliff. After much effort mid 110 little danger, Sam Hall managed to gain entrance to a cave hitherto unexplored. Some rare tapas were found, many of which were in an excellent stac of pres ervation. Calabashes of rare kou, and hula skirts made fiom human hair were brought forth to light from the tomb in which tliey had lain since the time of the early Kaniehamehas. In one cave there was found au iron coffin. The lid had been removed and the occupant of the narrow house was gone. Old natives who were interviewed upon the discovery tell of a visit of King Kalakaua some years ago, when he en tered these ancient burial places and re moved the bones of some of the royal dead to the mausoleum at Honolulu. It is the opinion of these natives that the ! broken iron coffin once contained the re mains of a close relative of either the first or second Kamehameha. In the cave which contained the t.ip.i, there was also found the skirt made of plaited human hair, bracelets und anklets studded with white teeth, nud gourds and many other rare and ancient curios. However, there was no sign that this cavern had been used as a burial place. After exploring this cavern, the daring cliff climbers scaled the side of the preci pice, a distance of fifty feet, by means of a ladder. No important finds were made after this laborious climb. Some of these articles are now in possession of Senator J. D. Paris 011 whose lands the caves are located; but most of them were left un disturbed iu the gloom which had hidden them for decades.
