The order created intense feeling
and the parliament at once declared

There will be other things than
sugar in the Kohala district if
the plans of the Woods brothers
and nheir partner, Mr. Johnson,
are carried to fulfillment as antici
pated. It is the intention of this
combination to start a pinetpple
plantation and cannery on the
lands of the Woods ranch. The
operators of the cannery will plant
100 acres in pineapples and a great
number of the homesteaders in
that section have signified their
desire to plant pine's. Johnson has

Sam P. Woods came from Ha
waii in the Kinau to take up busi
ness details in connection with this
proposed enterprise. The Woods-
Johnson partnership expects even
tually to put in 200 acres of pines,
but it is work that cannot be done
in a day, Two years will elapse
before the first crop is taken off,
but the work will go forward with
all the speed these energetic men
can produce. This will be a great
opportunity for the natives and
other homesteaders of the Kohala
district and about the only present
opportunity they have for produc
ing a revenue from their lauds.

Subject or n Poem by Tennyson
Helled Goddess Pole.
I wonder how many of my
readers, familiar with Tennyson ns
they may be, remember his poem
"Kapiolani"? Kapiolaui 'was the
name of the Christian convert re
cently referred to in "Anecdotage"
as the noble woman who descended
tlie crater of the fiery Kilauea to
free the people from heathenism.
She was the wife of the public
notary af Hawaii. The King and
his court had abonded the worship
of the evil goddess Pele. Many of
the people had followed 'heir ex
ample, but the priests of Pele, who
lived on the mountain's flank, held
the common folk to the old worship
by threats of dire vengeauce should
they forsake it. Kapiolani deter
mined to break the spell. Carry
ing with her the sacred berries
which it was sacrilege for her sex
to touch, she climbed over rocks
and slippery lava id the edge of the
terrible crater. Then she descended
to the edge of the molten sea,
which she had been tauiarht to be-
lteve was a direct manifestation of
the power of Pele, and flung into
it the sacred berries. "If I perish
by the anger of Pele," she cried,
"then dread her power; but, behold,
I defy her wrath: yet I live, and
am safe, for Jehovah, the Almighty,
is my God. His was the breath
that kindled these flames: His is
the hand that restrains their fury."
And she returned in safety to the
Kapiolani deserves a place in the
roll of noble women. Empedocles
leapt into the crater of Etna to
win eternal fame, Kapiolani de

free her people. T. P's, Weekly,

Did his late Majesty King 4Kala
kaua ever play for 52 1-2 acres of
Waialua land which he bid for and
secured at auction on April 21,1897,
but for which he never got a deed,
is the question raised by the plead
ings in the case of the Kapiolani
Estate against Land Commissioner
Pratt iu which the plaintiffs secured
nn alternative writ of mandamus
ordering that a deed issue aud the
land commissioner has filed a
demurrer, claiming iu substance
that there is no evidence that the
King ever really acquired the
The property was put up for sale
by the government in 1887. The
king was the highest bidder and
the whole piece of land was knock
eddowu to him for $170. As. suc
cessor to his alleged title the Kapi
olani estate is suing to force Pratt
to issue a title, which Pratt has re
fused to do, holding" that there is
nothing to show that the King's
purchase was ever carried out.
Deputy Attorney General Milvcr-
ton filed a demurrer, setting forth
that there is no ground whatever
for the issuance of a title, it being
claimed that the King failed to
pay up after the auction and thus
lost his intended purchase. C. W.

A ceremony fraught with quite
as much importance as tha notable
Kohala Ditch opening was enacted
Thursday at the upper end of the
Fred Lewis drove the first pick
in the ground for the construction
of this ditch, which is to supply
the water to the plantations of the
district, aud John McCrossen lifted
the first shovelful of earth.
There was no wine spilled and
the participants in the work were
not attired iu holiday goods, but it
was nevertheless an important event.
Immediately after the Kohala
Ditch christening, Lewis, McCross
en, Abrain Lewis, Wodehouse and
some of the local managers started
out for the scene of the upper Ha
makua ditch. There is plenty of
water and the ditch construction is
comparatively easy on account of
the small amount of tunnelling.
This ditch will be ready to furnish
water by January first. Bulletin.

They tell queer tales, those who
come back from Kohala, says "The
Bystander," in the Advertiser.
That sequestered district, it appears
did not look for so large nn inva
sion of the Goths aud Vandals of
Honolulu aud had not prepared
for it. There was a painful lack
of both accommodations and food.
The reporters found no transporta
tion ready and being of supposed
arboreal habits they were expected
to sleep in the trees i' it was their
custom to sleep at all. On that
point Kohala, having heard them
called night hawks, ventured to
entertain a doubt. Others got
accommodations bore aud there by
dint of searching and cussing: but
those who were turned over to the
tender mercies of the Kohala Club
say they fared the worst. There
were not beds enough and food was
at a premium. One man who affix
cd to eat atthe club says that he
can highly recommend it ns a place
for banting und the cure of gout.
There is nothing on the bill or in
the service to tempt one to perni
cious luxury. This story aston
ishes me, as I had -supposed the
Kohala Club to be a gilded palace
of luxury and the Kohala district
to be a land flowing with milk nnd
honey as well as ditch water.
But these illusiousjinve vanished
since the boys came back.
The Department of Public Works
no longer requires the services of
inspector Patterson arouud the
new Nuuauu reservior. Yesterday
he was requested to hand in his
resignation by the Assistant Super
intendent Howland, who was visit

The resignation was requested
on the grounds that the inspector
was insubordinate and had persis
ted in criticising his superior and
bearing talcs to the newspapers.
His qualifications as an inspector
and his work during the past five
months, since his appointment,
were not questioned.
"But I am not going to resign,"
said Mr. Patterson last night. "If
they want to get rid of me they
will have to fire me. Howland
says I have no business running
arouiid to the newspapers and
giving copies of the official com
munications regarding the work,
but I am prepared to stand by all
the things i have said. I am not
going to acknowledge myself even
a little wroug by resigning and I
will stay at work until I am dis
charged. I think that will be
It is known that Howland has
been wanting to discharge Patter

Archivariau Lydecker made a
great find in the cellar of the court
house at Lahaina. It was none
other than the record of the doings
of the Lahaina church from its
founding in 1823 to 1872. No
historical document Mr. Lydecker
has encountered contains more of
human interest and brings back
the old days when Lahaiha was
the great center of religious as well
as business activity. Rev. Mr.
Desha went through the br'ok and
stated that it was of air-tost price
less value to those interested iu
church work and historical facts.

Jurisdiction Over Town Lots.
The question submitted to the
Supreme Court some time ago by
Superintendent Holloway and Land
Commissioner Pratt ba3 been de
cided iu favor of the former's
contentions. The question was as
to jurisdiction over town lands,
and the syllabus of the decision
rules us follows:
"Section 75 of the Organic Act
gives the Superintendent of Public
Works the same limited power of
disposing of lands described in the
proviso of SectiQn 262, R, L., that
the Minister of the Interior formerly
had and controls Section 73 of the
same act in that regard.

not contained in any grant, not
needed for any public purpose, and
not within any contemplated public
house, are "town lots" within the

1 . m 1 !
I'liice or Holding Uoiirontlon.
The place for holding the next
Territorial convention of the Re
publicans is to be fixed upon at the
next meeting of the Territorial
Central Committee, aud is being
discussed among the members,
with the choice apparently lying
between Honolulu and Wailuku
and the chances in favor of Hono
lulu. Hilo had the last convention and
Honolulu the one before that, and
after the last one there was a strong
movement in favor of giving Maui
the next. Wailuku made a bid
for it, but of late her enthusiasm
seems to hive died out, aud at
present the indications are that
Honolulu will get the convention
without much of a contest. There
are some, however, who favor
rotation, and. Maui's claims will
have considerable attention if they
are brought forward. Star.
