HARRY RYAN'S SUCCESSOR
Asked today regarding thu appoint
ment of Oscar Lewis of Turk & Lewis
as a special officer, Marshal Drown had
tho following to Bay:
"Lewis has not made a single arrest
of deserting seamen outsldo of thoso
coming dlrcctiy under Consul's and
captain's warrants. Ho has neither a
commission or a badgo as a special
oQlcor yet but I Intend to glvo him both
In tho near futuro, his work to be sim
ply tho serving of Consul and captains'
warrants on deserting seamen.
"Lewis Is a particularly sultablo man
for this place as tho nature of his bust
ncss brings him constantly into con
tact with the sailors and he would ho
able to And men where our regular
officers could not This has already
heen proven for Lewis has captured
f four men for whom wo had warrants
and for whom our officers had been
' searching without success.
"There Is absolutely nothing In tho
story that Lewis is to tako Harry
Evans' place. I havo already picked
out n man, Harry W. Flint by nam's,
who is to tako tho place on the first of
' next month."
Flint Is very well known In Hono
lulu. Ho was a potty officer on tho
nennlngton for nearly three years and
was on that gunboat when alio re
mained in tho harbor for such a long
time. He received his discharge hero
and went to San Francisco in the So
lace. Ho then returned hero and serv
ed under tho Hoard of Health all dur
ing tho plague. Ho Is a steady going
follow and is particularly suited for
tho position ho is to take.
NEW SUGAR PLANTATION
Mr. Achl secured the insertion of an
item for a wharf at Hookcna, South
Kona, In tho appropriations by tho
Council of State. His reason for ask
ing for tho Item was' that a sugar plan
tation was starting at tho place.
In answer to Inquiry Mr. Achl says
operations have begun under tho name
of tho Kona Agricultural Co., which
will apply for Incorporation. W. R.
Castlo has charge of the business in
Honolulu. William McDougall, lately
of Kobala, is directing work on tho
' alto of the plantation.
Tho company owns 7,000 ncres of ex
cellent cane land in fee simple, and has
negotiations under way for large
leaseholds. One hundred acrevof Md
cane is growing finely, and another
hundred will be planted before tho end
of the year. Planting la being done by
Americans, Asiatics and Portuguese.
At the Orpheum.
Tho house picked up considerably
last night in anticipation of an agree
ablo evening and were amply reward
ed. Last night's bill is deserving of a
crowded houso, the program Is new
from start to finish, thero is absolute
ly not a weak placo In it, whllo cho
evident palnB taken In costumes and
ncenery are amply repaid by tho ef
fective pictures presented. Tho open
ing act, thirty minutes of unlnutrrupt
ed song, story and merriment Is pic
turesquely place upon tho deck of a
' vessol, the effect of tho bulwarks,
masts, sails and rigging being vory
deftly conceived and carried out. Ho
gan, who is hauled over tho stilo on a
Ufa lino Is, of course, the ruling spirit
and succeeds in makings things lively
for audience and tho good ship's pass
engers alike. The closing act "In
tho Trenches," introduces some effect
lvo drilling and rendering or the old
ilmo army airs.

tion of tho Council oi Stnto for tho edu

tho Royal school building had passed
Drawing a Contrast.
Mr. von Holt was glad to obseivo
that tho Council of State, had not
shown n llko disposition with the
executive Council to cut down school
Mr. Mott-Smlth explained that tho
lncrcaso of tho appropriations for sal
aries of teachers was on tho under
standing that thereunder no Increase of
existing salaries should bo made. This
was brought out by a recommendation
of tho teachers' committee that a cer
tain teacher's salary bo raised as early
as money was available
Tho Minister then left tho meeting,
asking Prof. Alexander to preside.
Storm Cloud Appears.
Mr. von Holt considered it high time
that a general lncrcaso should be made.
It was too much to- expect the services
of good leathers at HO, $50 or 100 a
Or. Maxwell I consider It nothing
short of a scandal. After further re
marks by Mr. von Holt, Dr. Maxwell
resumed, saying ho had been under
strong pressure for somo tlmo past to'
speak on this matter. As compared
with the pay that other workers got in
this country, tho compensation given to
teachers was a disgrace. He did not ex
pect to bo much longer a member of
the Board, but It ho remained here bis
strongest endeavors should bo to ralso
the standard both of pay and efficiency
Declaration of Independence.
Mr. von Holt considered that tho
Minister had no right to bind this
board to any policy ho might form in
agreement with tho Executive Ho did
not think they should caro ono lota for
tho views of tbo Cabinet. If money
wero voted for education ho proposed
to use It. The chairman having sug

PORTUGUESE WITH REPUBLICANS. 1
"These felWs behind the
this nfternoon, "who are forming parties and combinations be
tween the natives and Portuguese are simply exercising their
imagination. There lias not been a word said among the
Portuguese or by their leaders about forming any party or
joining the so-called Hawaiian party, 1 he Portuguese are cer
tainly watching the proceedings of those interested in the at
tempted o g mization of alleged political parties, but thus far
no steps for coalition have been ial.cn or nlwltip! r.f nnv b nA
maJe. If there i any coa'itltn hereafter by the Portuguese,'
it will be with the progressive element of the native population
for the formation of a branch of the straight Republican party
Those who are misrepresenting the Portuguese and natives at
present have an end in view."

o'clock to hear tho decision In his rase.
"Mr. Cunningham," said tho Judgo,
"I havo carefully examined all tho evi

as to your being guilty or torturing ail

tho possessions of every old farmer
In tho United States.
"Of course, tho peoplo who com
plained to tho humano officer did rlg.it
to take notice of tho matter but they
are peoplo who only passed by your

for two or three minutes whllo men
who had occasion to sco tho horre three

did not toituro tho horse. I find you
not guilty nnd discbarge you."

Editor Evening Bulletin Tho Ad

is devoting considerable of Its blanket

must bo gratifying to the employers
who pay fpr them. Such tnlent Is al

Iho Advertiser has never been tho
organ of n majority; It has neor been
the organ of right, reason or common
sense. Hut It has always been thu
mouthpiece of Impudence nnd brazen
assurance. Its untcnablo positions
hao never had a scmblanco of logical
support. Tho Ipso dixit of tho Edltoi
has been deemed sulllclcnt lo estab
lish any proposition, no matter how
outrageous. The sheet has over voiced
tho views of a clique and now voices
tho views of a cllquo narrowed to its
Tho shoddy organ has only snoers for
a pollticnl club organized over a black
smith shop by ordinary human beings.
Not only tho personnel of tho meeting
Is ridiculed, but tho paucity of tho
gathering Is also reprehended as un
rcpiesentatlvo. Tho Advertiser Is In
sincere In this last regard for It has
always been tho organ of a minority.
Tho real motive for Its virtuous Indig
nation Is that tho meeting was not
left to Its call and guided by Its control.
Tho Advertiser has a gang of "think
ers" and "Keen observers" who think
as tho Advertiser thinks nnd observe
as tho Advertiser observes, who will at
tho proper tlmo "think" out a political
party. With all possiblo respect for
tho Journnl, there are peoplo who may
bo trusted to do their own thinking,
even If not gifted with tho scientific
acquirements necessary for member
ship in tho Social Sclcnco Club, or tho
brazen nudaclty requisite to till a po
sition on tho Advertiser staff. It might
bo tho part of wisdom for tho organ to
bear In mind that burlesquo has never
downed any political association, but
rather strengthened it, but as wisdom
forms no part of its tactics this advlco
will be duly rejected.
Now tho Advertiser had withdrawn
Its flro temporarily from Tim Murray,
and directed It against a new party
"consisting of an overwhelming major
ity of tho voters on the Islands." The
frantic wriggling and writhing of tho
Hessian outfit when tho news of tho
adoption of manhood suffrago was re
ceived from Washington is well re
membered and has especial slgnlflcanco
In this connection. This vast party
though having vast Interests In tho
country and being resident hero long
before It wna thought necessary to Im
port scurrility at so much per month.
Is almost destltuto of "thinkers." If
It would quickly submit to disfran

Will tho Advertiser kindly do a llt

who have Btrivcn with all their might
to keep them out of tho political pale.
Fond memory recalls tho lofty ora
tory (which was weighed and found
wanting In sincerity) which declared
that tho Hawallans would enjoy great
