Unoccupied House on .Maunalea
Street Oiled and Fired.
Very ievr people know how near
Chinatown came to being destroyed
by fire last Wednesday night. Had
it not been for the prompt action
of some natives in the vicinitv oi
King street on Mannakea there is
no doubt a serious conflagration
would have occurred.
About midnight people in the
locality mentioned were awakened
by frantic yells oi Chinamen and
shrill notes of whistles. It seems
that some unknown person had
poured kerosene oil all over the
wall connecting two rooms on the
ground floor of an unoccumed
house next that of a Chinese
store in the vicinity spoken
of. This had been ignited and the
volumes of smoke which resulted
caused the Chinamen next door to
be awakened. Instead of inquirins
into the matter, they began to
hustle their effects out upon the
opposite sidewalk, all the while
Several natives broke open the
door of the burning building, and
despatching several of the rattled
itongolians for buckets of water,
soon had the flames extinguished,
although good headway had been
gained and the thin ceiling begun
to catch fire.
The police arrived soon after,
thinking there was a fight on
hand, this impression having been
conveyed by the whistles. An attempt
was made to locate the
but all efforts failed.
The building was well chosen for'
the center of operations; others in
the vicinity are old and would
have burned rapidly.
Mortuary report for December is
published this morning.
D. Howard Hitchcock Talks of
His Work and Exhibit.
HE WANTS A LARGER FIELD.
Exhibition Sow on View at Puclflo
Hardware CompanyTime Spent no
Criterion ot Value Excellent Still
Life Studies Parisian Experience.
In conversation with D. Howard
Hitchcock concerning his work
now on exhibition at the Pacific
Hardware Company's art rooms,
the artist said: "It is quite the
custom for an artist to make a
collection of his works and, through
some reliable dealer, give a sale
exhibition such as I have here. To
be sure, mine is comparatively a
small collection, but I am proud
to be able to say it is a fairly representative
one of my various styles,
D. HoWaKD HITCHCOCK.
and there is not a single canvas in
the lot I should be ashamed to
show in any like exhibition in New
York or Boston.'
Continuing, he said: "There's
that volcano: it may not be as
large a canvas as some, but I feel
I have caught the subtle something
that raises it above the plane of
black and red paint and gives it
true artistic value. The price?
Paintings cannot be measured in
cash value. I may dash off a little
'effect' in a couple oi hours that has
more merit than a canvas I have
labored over for as many months.
There's that study of pheasants in
the window; I am not ashamed to
say I painted it in less than six
hours, in one sitting, and there's
more go and snap in it than in
that other still life alongside it,
and it's cheap cheaper than people
here realize at sixty dollars. No,
I don't think my prices high, for
the grade of work I do.
"1 have known people here in
this town to go abroad what a
charm the term 'from abroad" has
to some people and buv pictures
and statues I should be ashamed to
have seen in my studio; and compare
the pieces thev pav to these
on this price list. And if I do say
it of myself, there is good in it.
My Parisian experience was of
great benefit to me. The main
thing I learned there was my limitations,
and there is nothing in
this little show that is beyond
them. People don't seem to think
of that. That's where the success
of Coro: and Daubigny come in.
They knew their limitations and
did not try to paint such subjects
as the Embarkation of Columbus
at Palos or Venice Enthroned; and
look at the prices their work brings.
"No. The time is past when an
artist's work, is only valued after
his death. Look at the success of
some of our younger American
artists Harrison with his marines
and sunsets, Sargent with his
powerful portrait work. Yet, do
you know, it is sometimes most
discouraging. A fellow is always
reaching a little beyond his depth
and getting into deep water. See
that dawn effect at Waialoa, number
eight on the list. I painted
that sky half a dozen times before
it suited me. The harmony with
the cooler greys in the foreground
and water was extremely difficult
to catch. In my original study I
had it suggested, but in the crudest
way, and in. trying to bring it out
in the picture I found the difficulty.
"Yes. I paint rather broadly.
If I gain my effect, and feel I have
caught the sentiment of the subject,
I stop there, as experience has
taught me that the sandpaper finish
the public so much admires is generally
gained at the sacrifice of feeling
and even of color."
In further conversation the artist
said: 'The market here is limited
and I am only waiting for a chance
to get an opening in a wider field.
Financially it is discouraging. Yet
what can you do? There are artists
of undoubted merit starving doing
illustrating, anything, to get
along, in all the centers the world
over, and what would be my chance
without influence in such a place.
It looks as though I did have to
grind' away here a while longer."
COLLISION ON KING STREET.
Bicycle Rider Ran into by a
Late yesterday afternoon Joe
Luahiwa, formerly a lieutenant of
police, ran into John Kewalo, an
employee of the Honolulu Iron
Works, and threw him to the
ground. The event was witnessed
by quite a number of people. Luahiwa
was riding along from Palama
on the left hand side of the street
and when he got near the corner of
Fort and King streets his horse
was lumping aoout in a pretty
lively manner. Just then Kewalo
came along on his wheel, riding at
a lively pace. Luahiwa kept on
going and the result was a collision.
The bicycle rider was thrown over
and the front wheel of the machine
bent in various ways. Nearly all
the spokes were broken.
When Kewalo got up from the
ground his first impulse was to lay
the blame on Luahiwa. In this he
was supported by the crowd which
had collected. Luahiwa claimed
he could not get out of the way ;
that he was wedged in between a
carriage and a dray and that
Kewalo should have stopped.
was for arresting Luahiwa for
fast an'd furious riding and claimed
that he had no right on his own
side of the street.
Finalh. after much talk the
thought struck Luahiwa to offer to
pay for damages done Kewalo's
wheel. This the injured person
did not seem to grasp for some
moments. When he did he picked
up his wheel and carried it to the
repair shop, followed by Luahiwa,
who signed an agreement to pay
Kewalo was bruised considerably;
the horse received the sharp points
of two of the bicycle spokes in one
of his forelegs.
GAME OF GOLF.
Club Formed in Honolulu 31 embers
The groving interest in golf in
this city has resulted in the form
ation of a club which is composed
of President Dole, Mrs. Graham,
Mrs. Renjes, Miss McGrew, Captain
Broome and Walter Dillingham.
All the members are very enthusiastic
and are making preparations
to begin play as soon as possible.
Mrs. Graham and Captain Broome
have both played golf in the East
and are thoroughly acquainted
with the game. The club has been
formed for the express purpose of
awakening genuine golf enthusiasm
on the islands and as soon as
everything is in working order the
membership will be increased.
The billy ground immediately back
of Punahou has been thought a
good place for the links and will
probably be adapted to the game of
golf. The " formation of a club
with such enthusiastic players
gives promise that it will occupy
a prominent place among the
sports already in existence here.
Board of Education 3Ieeting.
A full meeting of the Board of
Education was held yesterday. The
following appointments were made:
L. Madeiros, transferred from
to Waipio; W. B. Starkey,
transferred from Wainiha to
and Miss Angus, appointed
an extra teacher in the Chinese
school. It was decided to move the
three lower grades from the Chinese
Y. 1L C. A. into the wooden building
at Fort street, accommodations
being now complete for the transfer.
Mrs. H. Herbert's labor bureau,
Fort street, has three good Chinese
waiters ready for employment.
Novel and Effective Method of
Catching Wood Borers.
SEW USE FOR BEER BOTTLES.
Commissioner Mnrlen lUJolees thnt
Carpenter Bees Can be Exterminated
Ineffectual Experiments Mntlo.
Ijitest Discovery Mode by Accident.
The Carpenter Bee is a great peat
in this country. Making its nest
only in wood, it annually causes
much damage to the wood work of
houses, fence posts, etc. The only
protection so far has been to paint
and sand every part of wood work.
This is expensive, and any means
that will materially reduce the
numbers of this destructive insect
will be eagerly welcomed. Many
tilings have been tried to kill off
the bee, viz., paying tlje children
so much per hundred, plugging
the holes with rags saturated with
sugar and Paris green has done a
great deal in reducing the numbers
of the pest, but the latest discovery
promises to be the most
effectual method yet tried in combating
A few months ago one of C. A.
Brown's men was at work on the
land above Waipio. He had taken
his lunch with him and a bottle of
water. After he had eaten his
lunch and drank the water, he
placed the bottle (a quart beer
bottle) on the top of a fence post
and left it there. A month or so
afterward he visited the locality
again, and saw the bottle still
standing on the fence post. On
examining the bottle he found it,
much to his surprise, full of carpenter
Taking the bottle he at once re
ported this curious occurrence to
Mr. Brown, who proceeded to test
this novel method of trapping the
bee. He had several hundred beer
bottles (black glass) tied in an upright
position to the fence posts on
his land, and after several months
every one of these bottles were from
one-half to completely filled up
with the bees. Mr. Brown has now
a good use for all the empty beer
bottles that he can procure. It
would seem that the bee is attracted
(not by the smell of what has
been in the bottle) by the nice,
round hole at the top of the bottle,
which seems to offer him a nest al
ready made. He enters and there
he stays, for the neck of the bottle
is too narrow for him to fly out and
the sides too smooth for him to
walk out. His buzzing in the bottle
Boon attracts others, who enter
to keep him company; they keep on
going in until the bottle is full.
. his is. an easy method of catching
the bee. Just tie empty beer bottles
to the veranda posts or to the
wall and the bees will do the rest.
It is necessary that the bottles be
placed perfectly upright, or else the
bees may get out.
Mr. Brown has left two of the
bottles in my office, where they can
be seen by any one interested.
These bottles are full of bees and
are only a fair sample of several
hundred of the bottles that Mr.
Brown has set out.

B003I AT WAIANAE.
Big Hotel to be Erected There at
The Waianae Plantation Company
have about decided to erect a
commodious hotel at some point to
be decided on near the railway
terminus. This has been' found
necessary for many reasons. The
building will be of a capacity
sufficient to accommodate the railway
employees, travelers and visitors
that may journey thither,
and will cost in the neighborhood
Judge Widemann and President
Dole visited Waianae yesterday,
making the journey in a special
parlor car provided by Manager
Dillingham of the Oahu
Railway. The land used by the
Waianae plantation is leased from
the Government, and it is necessary
to acquire additional space
for the hotel building if the site
selected by Mr. Widemann is decided
upon. It i3 understood the
Government is willing to grant
concessions for land anywhere in
the locality for hotel purposes.
The need of an hotel at Waianae
has long been felt, even before
the railway was extended to that
place. So many people found it
either convenient or necessary to
stop there particularly over night
and the plantation manager's
home being the only available
place, his hospitality was often
It is the intention of the railway
company to make Waianae a
favorite resort by the construction
of bath houses, pavilions, etc. Excursions
will be run there -at sundry
and divers time, athletic events,
swimming contests, rifle matches,
etc., to form attractions for making
journeys there both successful and
