An Ltnhorate Celebration or the
Full or I'ort Arthur.
Whin the first official report nfthc
fall of Port Arthur was made public in
last Tuesday's Tkiiiu.vk, the local colony
01 Japanese in Hilo and on nearby plan
tations, proceeded to celebrate the victory
by a ratification meeting in Moohcau
Park. Early lit the day word was passed
out that appropriate exercises would be
held at Moohenu Hall, nud with the per
mission of the Park Commission, the 1111.
phltheatre was turned over to them.
The celebration was of a peaceful, or
derly character, the main features being
speeches by Chus. M. I.eHlond and lead
Ing Japanese citizens. All the afternoon
and evening were devoted to geisha danc
ing, and oriental splendor held full sway
throughout Hilo thoroughfares and Moo
heau Park. At night there was an Im
mense jubilee in which over a thousand
Japanese marchers paraded the principal
streets with lighted lanterns and banners,
symbolic of victory. For once the tables
were reversed, and instead ol Asiatics
lininfj the curbs to witness n parade of
white men, all the white population
turned out to watch the festivities of tin-
joyful Japanese. It was nn inspiring
sight to those fortunate enough to view
the processional party.
The line of march proceedGd to the
home of C. C. Kennedy, tit Waiakca,
who has been an especial friend of the
Hilo Japanese, subscribing large sums to
their war and charity funds. After pay
ing their respects to the Wainkca "good
boss," the revelers repaired to the Park,
where was enacted n war drama In
pantouiine, which attracted a large crowd
of interested spectators. Three days the
jollification continued, till, the loyal sub
jects of the Mikado had exhausted them
selves and resumed their former employ
ments. The celebration was unique in
its way aud deserving of much credit for
its orderly character.

Railroad Talks or Ills Trip.
Mr. Philip Peck, President of the
Kohala & liilo Railroad returned on the
Mongolia from San Francisco, making
close connections with the Kinau nud
arriving in Hilo Thursday night. He
expressed himself ns being much grntl
fied with the result of his trip east, nud
while unwilling to make any definite
promises us to the outcome ofhls visit to
New York, he accomplished very
much In the short time at his disposal.
He was only three days In New York,
but during that time took up the railroad
project with eastern capitalists who as
sure him of their ability to dispose of the
whole or patt of the bond issue. Two
trust companies, one 111 Pittsburg and
the other in New York are rivals for the
privilege of placing the bonds, but he re
fused to give cither n binding option for
any given length of time.
Owing to the custom of banking and
financial institutions In the east closing
up their business for the year from Jan
uary 1st to 10th, Mr. Peck said nothing
could be accomplished by his riiniinhV
longer in New York, and lie had return
cd to the islands to be present at the
stockholders meeting, which occurs in
Honolulu on January 23rd. At that time
the proposition made by the two trust
companies will be ltild before the Com
pany, nnd he hoped before the end of
the mouth to close ucgotlatians with one
or the other of the parties bidding for the
Mr. Peck was much provoked by the
two suits against the railroad which had
been pressed to judgment during his
absence, nud was frank to confess the in
formation which had been cabled to him
that an attempt was being made to Issue
execution against the leasehold and
terminal site, had very greatly embar
rassed his operations in the East. If the
persons behind these actions had the
prosperity and best interests of the com
munity at heart, neither would hamper
the railroad project with embarrassing
litigation. Referring to the merits of the
two claims, Mr. Peck said the indebted
ness for which these two suits were
brought, were incurred prior to his tak
ing hold of the project and if correct,
they would ultimately be paid. The
railroad is not now, however, in n posi
tion to meet these claims, und he re
gretted exceedingly that the parlies
interested had begun legnl proceedings.
The suits referred to were those of
Walker & Howland and of J. VS.. Fuller
ton, if both of which cases judgments
had been rendered against the Kohala
Hilo Railroad. '
Mr. Peck spoke of the prevailing snow
storms in the Eastern States, causing
the City of New York an expense of
$380,000 to remove the snow which had
fallen in 24 hours. They employed
13,000 men during the day and 10,000
men at night and 4,000 teams to get the
business streets clear of snow, which im
peded railroad and street travel. He I
returns in the best of spirits, much im
proved in health aud appearance and
expects shortly to be able to make public 1
a report 01 ills trip wliich will restore
confidence in the much delayed railroad
from Hilo to Mahukona.
Dissolution or Partnership.
Frank E. Thompson of Honolulu came
to Hilo last Thursday nnd formnlly took I
charge of the nffairs of the Hilo Wine & I
Liquor Co , having been appointed tern
porary receiver by the First Circuit Court
in proceedings in equity institated by '
Seely I. Shaw for dissolution of partner-1
ship of the firm of S. I. Shaw and Co. '
uie linn consists o! beely I. Shaw of Ho
nolulu and J. S. Canario of Hilo. doing n '
wholesale liquor business in Honolulu !
under the name of Shaw & Co., and in
Hilo uuiler the name of Hilo Wine & '
Liquor Co. They also operate a general
retail business with branch establish. I
meiits in Hilo nnd Olan. There has betu
considerable friction between the partners j
for some time, to such an extent that
they have been unable to agree as to the
terms of dissolution.
Tlie disagreement has rebuked in
throwing the whole matter into court,
the appointment of a temporary receiver
and a division of the assets of the firm.
No question has been raised as to
solvency of the firm and It is stated that
it..,-.. r. .! ,urr;niii.. i.. i '
in.. i- nu itiiuv.uiii.iwo 111 mc way 01
final adjustment of the differences be
,, " I
tween the two partners. E. E. Richards
has been placed in charge of the local
establishment, by mutual agreement be
tween the parties, and as soon the diffi
culties between the two partners ure
arranged, J. S. Canario expects to resume
business on his own account in Hilo.
Both the Olaa Saloon and the Hilo
Saloon, as well as the" Hilo Wine and
Liquor Co., are open and doing business
as usual. From outward appearances,
an outsider would never suspect nuy
change had occurred in the management.
Mnttoou Rejected.
Governor Carter has sent nu nnswer to
James Mnttoou, a Hilo politician who
had registered a kick because he had not
been given a job on the police force as a
rewnrd for political work, as
had been
promised him.
