FUNERAL OF J. G. HOAPILI.
Large Number of Friends Present.
The Band at the Grounds.
Hon. J. G. Hoapili was buried
from the meeting house of the Re
organized Church of Latter Dav
Saints, of which he was a member,
at 2 p. m. Sunday. The church
was crowded by representative
Hawaiian friends of the deceased.
The services were conducted by
G. J. Waller, who has charge of
the congregation during the absence
of the regular pastor.
Mr. Hoapili's death was quite
unexpected, for with the exception
of a slight trouble he has had
with one of his limbs, he has had
his usual good health until Wed
nesday, when he was taken ill and
confined to his room. Friday
morning he was very much better,
but in the afternoon he was taken
suddenly worse and before his

H. Davies & Co., could be summoned
he was dead.
The deceased was born in Kona
.sixty-three years ago and was one
of the old aliis. He was an honest,
upright man and one of the
best of the race. He was for years
a Judge in Kona, and represented
the district in the Legislature several
sessions. He enjoj'ed the
friendship of Kalakaua during the
latter's reign, and at the funeral
yesterday the Queen Dowager
sent Cupid Kalanianaole to represent
her. Hon. W. O. Smith met
the cortege at the cemetery and

HOXOKAA SUGAR COMPANY.
Schaefer & Co. Dispose of Portion
of Large Holding Big Price.
With the increased price of sugar
and good yield for the year
comes a desire to people with
means to possess stock in plantations.
F. A. Schaefer & Co. have held
a large block of "Honokaa Sugar
Co., larger in fact than ihey cared
to carry. This included the stock
owned by W. H. Rickard when, he
was manager of the plantation.
It was recently divided in lots and
offered at private sale at 200
per share and promptly taken up
as a good investment
At one time Honokaa was one
of the best paying plantations on
Hawaii, but during the past five
years there has been a series of
setbacks and difficulties which
threw the company behind. The
profits thus far on this season's
crop has enabled the company to
liquidate the debt and a dividend
will probably be declared. Next
year, should the same prices of
sugar obtain, the result to the
company will be a handsome
Schaefer & Co. still have a very
large holding of this particular
Mr. D. P. Davis, a prominent, liveryman
and merchant of Goshen, Va., has
this to say on the subject of rheumatism:
"I take pleasure In recommend-
ing Chamberlain's Pain Balm for rheu
matism, as I know from personal
perience that it will do all that is
claimed for it A year ago this spring
my brother was laid up in bed with
flammatory rheumatism and suffered
intensely. The first application of Cham-
oeriains rain Joaim easea tne pain, and
the use of one bottle completeljr cured
him. For sale by all 'druggistsand

a motion to adopt the report of the)
committee, but after the Attorney Gen-
eral had spoken he changed his mind, in-But
he would now change back, because
be felt that hardships might follow Its
passage. The minister at tianmampui
Church states that there is a irame

is, aad If the bill goes Into effect they

Minister Smith said Ejery time the
bill has been bronght upa great deal
of time has been wasted in discussing it
If it was not a matter of great Importance
to the city, if it 'was not one that
will add to the improvement of the city,
I would not press It If we are to wait
until the bill will not interfere with the
puree of anyone, It will never go
through. "When you come to private interests,
every place a fire proof building
is erected enhances the value of the rest
of the property in the neighborhood. If
the bill now fails it is because public
benefit is to be sacrificed to personal interests.
That's what it amounts to.

there was visible a column of
smoke and vapor arising from a

elevation of several thousand feet

into a compact and intensely
white cloud, the heavier and dark

It was reported from Kawaihae
that the outbreak was preceded
by a commotion of the sea commonly
spoken of as a tidal wave,
but so far throughout Kohala
there have been no earthquake
shocks of sufficient strengeth to
be generally noticeable. On Friday
night of last week there was
a very brilliant reflection in the
sky, visible from all parts of the
district. If connected with the
volcano it could only have been
caused by a very extensive conflagration.
As viewed from the
hills at night there are frequent
changes in the intensity of the
glow, but it never entirely fades
out Some suppose that at times
the actual surface of the molten
lava can be seen, but at the distance
of sixty miles it is scarcely
possible to be certain.
The feeble condition of health
of the aged missionary pioneer,

grave anxiety to his family, but at
last accounts he was improving.

DEAR SIRS: Our exhibition of the
New Disc Plow in broom corn at this
place today was not only a success but
complete surprise to all the farmers
present, and was an agreeable surprise
myself in that sort of jvork. I talked
with every farmer at the exhibition,
and the majority of them said the plow
was worth all it cost just to plow
broom com. Just think how absurd it
would be to try to plow in heavy broom
corn without breaking or raking and
burning the stalks, but the Disc Plow
will do it, and do it well. From what I
have seen of this plow I think it is the
only plow, for broom corn, at least
