sail for the accommodation of any and
all. Seats numbering over 200 were
placed in rows and nearly all these
were occupied.

all about the wharves and on the various
vessels, making the day all the
more pleasant.

crowded throughout the day, there be

the evening, and this proved one of the
most pleasant occasions that has ever
been given in the club house. The
jnoonlight served to light up the new
lanai sufficiently for the dance, and the
soft music by a band of native singers
placed the affair decidedly in the realm
of the romantic

Two Chinamen Get Into a Fight
Over Water Rights.
A quarrel over water rights resulted
in two badly cut up Chinamen Thursday
Between 2 and 3 o'clock a Chinaman
burst into Captain Parker's yard on
Liliha street and conveyed the intel
ligence that there would be serious
trouble in just a little while.
Looking out the back way Captain
Parker saw a dozen or more
running down from the rice fields
mauka of his place. Each was armed
with a hoe and although running from
different directions, all seemed to be
making for soir.p definite spot
Captain. Parker went flut and intercepting
them, asked what the evidently
hostile demonstration meant.
Among the number was one Chinaman
who, from the appearance of
gashes on his face and a thumb, nearly
severed, gave pretty good evidence
of his having, been in a recent fracas.
He told Captain Parker that he had
got into a fight with a Chinaman
from the rice fields just makai of his
nlace. The gang from the mauka
fields were on their way down to "do
up" the individual.
Upon investigation it was found
that the Chinaman from makai had
been to the uper boundary of his
fields attending to the water and, upon
the arrival of the noon hour, had gone
down to get something to eat
The Chinaman from mauka took
advantage of this and diverted the
course of the water into his own
There was a meeting soon after this
and the hoe contest which resulted in
the arrest of both men.

on duty at the.place mentioned Thursday

Army people the warning, walked up
to the ladies at the head of affairs and
told them that his orders were not to

spectators following. At the police
station the captain and lieutenant

and to told to appear in the police
court Monday morning.
Sweet Emelie was arrested Sunday
night for profanity. When asked what
she had been drinking she replied,
"Oh, nothing but a lot of wine, swipes,
gin and okolehao."
Shortly before this arrest Lieutenant
Wells came in with four Chinamen
from Kakaako who were saluting the
moon with Chinese bombs. There
were others at Waikiki, Pauoa and
Kapalama who were doing the same
thing, but they made themselves

This is the song of the straining span,
the tune of the tattered tilt,
Of the slow essays in perilous ways of
the wagon stoutly built
The song that was sung in the ancient
tongue, when the days of the world
dawned gray,
The creaking croon of the disselboom,
. the song that is sung today.
East and west and south and north the
first-born herdsmen spread.
From the waters clear of the high
Pamir, from the ancient Oxus bed;
On and on to the plains of the Don
their creaking wagons ran,
And the disselboom showed out the
doom that has given the earth to
Over the sands of the thirsty lands,
under a brazen sky,
Where the only law men bow before
is the law of the assegai;
Forth and forth to the dim far north
where the broad Zambesi flows,
Still today in the ancient way the rumbling
wagon goes.
Through the forest ways where the
wild things graze, the dappled, the
fawn, the gray;
Where the tall "Kameel" at sunset
steal like ghotats to the silent
Where the lions drink at the reedy
brink of the slowly shallowing
The disselboom shows out the doom
that has given the earth to man.
Slowly and slow the wagons go by
thicket and thorn and pool.
But their thin path traced on the homeless
waste is the road of the coming
And in dread of that track the wild
slinks back, and the thief and the
beast give place
To the farm and field and the yearly
yield of the men df the wiser race.
East and west and south and north,
from the days of the dawn till
Ere grass was burned or sod was turned
by the share of the furrowing
piow, V
This was the tune of the tattered tilt,
the song of the straining span,
How the disselboom points out the
doom that has' given the earth to
St. James' Gazette.
Oh, the days gone by! Oh, the days-gone
The apple in the orchard and the pathway
through the rye,
The chirrup of the robbin and the whistle
of the quail,
As he piped across the meadows, sweet
as any nightingale;
When the bloom was on the clover and
the blue was in the sky,
And my happy heart brimmed over, in
tne days gone by.
In the days gone by, when my naked
feet were tripped
By the honeysuckle tangles, where the
water lilies dipped,
And the ripple of the river lapped the
moss along the brink,
Where the placid eyed and lazy footed
cattle came to drink,
And the tilting snipe stood fearless of
the truant's wayward cry, '
And the splashing of the swimmer, in
the days gone by.
Oh, the days gone by! Oh, the days
gone by!
The music of the laughing lip, the lustre
of the eye;
The childish faith in fairies, and Aladdin's
magic ring,
The simple, soul-reposing, glad belief
in everything,
When life was like a story, holding
neither sob nor sigh,
In the olden, golden glory of the days
gone by.
James Whitcomb Riley.
A story told of Horace Greeley relates
that an acquaintance of his got
offended at one of the articles in the
Tribune, went to the office and put an
end to his subscription. Later in the
day he met the editor and said: "Mr.
Greeley, I've stopped your paper."
"Have you?" queried Horace, adding,
"Well, that's too bad." And the old
white hat went on its way. The next
morning Greeley encountered his former
subscriber again and accosted him
with, "I thought you had stopped the
Tribune?" "So I did." "Then there
must be some mistake," replied Horace,
"for I just came from the office,
and when I left the presses were running
as usual, the clerks were as busy
as ever, the compositors were hard at
work, and the business was going on
the same as yesterday and the day he-fore,"
"Oh," ejaculated the old subscriber,
"I didn't mean that I had stopped
the paper, I stopped only my own
copy of it because I didn't like one of
your editorials." "Pshaw," retorted
Greeley, "it wasn't worth taking up my
time to tell me such a trifle as that
My dear sir, if you expect to control the
utterances of the Tribune by the purchase
of one copy a day, or if you
think to find any newspaper worth
reading that will never express convictions
at right angles with your own,
you are doomed to disappointment The
Tribune would not be deserving of respect
if it could be so coerced by the
threat of the loss of one subscriber, or
a hundred, or a thousand, or every one
it has, to refrain from telling the truth
as it sees it My friend, this is a free
country, and the man who does not
give freedom of opinion to others does
not deserve it himself. Good-bye."
There is such a phenomenon as a
white rainbow. The circumstances necessary
for its formation are a fine rain
and a strong sun. The phenomenon is
due to the optical principle known as
interference. If the drops of water be
very small the interference of the rays
causes such a complete overlapping of
the colors that the bow appears white.
That is to say, the various prismatic
rolors, instead of being thrown out
separately, as in the ordinary prism,
are thrown one on top of the other,
and the light is thrown by the sun, as ,
it were, on a sheet of rain. The flne.j
close rain produces the same effect as ,
a woven texture. This result is still
more noticeable where a fog takes the

These three conditions are not often
present at the same time.
The bombardment was a characteristically
high-handed and summary
performance. Justice requires it to be
added that it was also a useful and
necessary act, distinctly in the interest
of humanity. Seyyid Khalid was
not only an usurper. It seems likely
that he was also concerned in the
death of the sultan, whom he aspired
to succeed, and it is clear that his
backing was that of the Arab sla
traders, the curse of East Africa, who
have been made very uncomfortable
during the British protectorate. It is
not likely that either this young man
or any Zanzibar! will be so foolish as
to repeat his defiance of the British
power ,in consequence of which his
palace was knocked down in an hour.
There is probably "no political significance"
in the fact that the usurper
took refuge in the German consulate.
The British protectorate was established
in 1S90 by agreement with Germany,
and has ever since been recognized
by that power. New York Times.

built on the great lakes. The tonnage
built and numbered on the great lakes
was 104 vessels of 92,000 tons, compared
with 93 vessels of 38,000 tons for the
