HILO, Hawaii, April 22. The community
in general heralds 'with delight
the refreshing showers that are falling
today. As in the past two or three
years, when a short dry spell has come,
the people are' again threatened with
epidemics of cold and the like. This
time the attack causes throat troubles,
and hardly a family has escaped having
some of its members confined with
sore throats, croup and hoarseness.
The death of a child is reported as
being caused by croup this week. Along
the Volcano road many water tanks
are awaiting liberal contributions.
Dust has been flying thick on the main
thoroughfares. Carpenters and builders
are probably the most gratified
over the continued dry spell, as there
is no hindrance to the rapid completion
of their contracts. The second
story of the Hackfeld building is going
up now, and the hotel is well under
way. Lumber for the hospital has been
on the site for some weeks, but there
are no signs of work as yet E. D.
Baldwin is preparing to erect a dwelling
on his lot in "Greater Hilo," and
expects to be living there -with his family
by the 1st of July. The Sadler cottage,
on Church street, has been rented
to the new Customs Collector, George
Mrs. McKinnon, wife of Contractor
JIcKinnon, who has the building of the
store for the Hilo Mercantile Company,
arrived by the last Kinau with her two
daughters. They hope to make Hilo
their home permanently.
Messrs. Hackfeld & Co. have leased
the tract of land along the beach road,
opposite the pond, and after filling in
the marsh land, will utilize the same
as a lumber yard. They have also
jiurchased of C. C. Kennedy a large lot
on the roauka side of the road.
C. S. Desky recently bought a piece
of land, containing about 15 acres, on
the Volcano road, near the one-mile
post, and intends subdividing the same
for building sites.
On Saturday evening last, a meeting
of loyal British subjects was held at
Fireman's hall to discuss plans for the
celebration of Queen Victoria's GOth
year of sovereignty. Final action was
. deferred until further meetings. Aside
from the mere remembrance of the
day as one of rejoicing, there will probably
be the establishment of a memorial
fund to maintain a "Victoria" ward
in the new hospital. The matter has
been left wi(h a committee, composed
of Messrs. Kennedy, Steele, Gibb, Rawlins
and Dr. Elliott
At the invitation of Mrs J A. Scott,
a number of those who took part in the
entertainment the preceding Saturday
evening, gathered at Kaehukai (Sea
Spray), on Reed's Bay, last Thursday
evening. After toasting marshmallows
and grabbing flaming raisins, there
was candy making, dancing and a gen
eral good time. Those present were
Mefcdaraes Scott, Austin, Baldwin and
Richards, Misses M. Richardson and
B. Weight, Messrs. Scott, Austin, Richards,
Bole, D. H. Hitchcock, Jr., and
F. M. Wakefield.
A very dainty and pretty affair was
the "Lavender Tea" at the Severeance
home, on Wednesday afternoon, given
in honor of Miss Annie Parke. The
floral decorations of fragrant lavender
pond lilacs and violets
lent much beauty to the scene, and
the fine chi'ia and neat lavender bows
were in keeping with the apparent
daintiness -of the affair. The following
ladies were present Mesdames
Pratt, Hobson, Scott, Austin,
Severance, Baldwin, Richardson, Turner,
Thrum, Andrews, Richards, Town-send,
Williams, Misses Parke, Willis,
Weight, Sisson, Coan and Richardson.

on Friday, at which Mrs. T. G. Thrum,

assisted Mrs. Turner in receiving the

and Miss Weight Misses Severance

Wray Taylor Returns From Tour
Wray Taylor, secretary of the Board
of Immigration, returned from Lihue,
Kauai, on the W. G. Hall yesterday
morning, whither he had been sent by
the Government the early part of the
week to thoroughly investigate the recent
trouble among" the Chinese contract
laborers on the plantation at that
place, which resulted in 15 of them being
charged with rioting.
Further than that he had fulfilled his
mission, Mr. Taylor declined to speak,
as he will make a full report to Captain
King, president of the Bureau of Immigration.
Mr. Taylor visited several other
plantations, landing first at Makaweli,
where he found the mill in full blast,
turning out 100 tons of sugar a day.
The manager, Mr. HughIorrison, and
his wife are preparing to leave Makaweli
next month for a six-months' tour.
Going on to Eleele, the ravages of the
fire the previous night were seen, about
40 acres of cane being burnt, on the extreme
mauka side of the plantation.
The origin of the fire is unknown, but
it is believed to be Incendiary. The
burnt cane is'being ground as quickly
At Koloa, Mr. Taylor had lunch at
the hospitable home of the manager,
Mr. Anton Cropp. Everything seemed
to be going along very satisfactorily
at this plantation. The McCandless
Bros., the renowned well-borers, were
found there, and, in their first boring,
struck water at a depth of 200 feet.
They will bore several more wells.
Douglas Monsarrat has just finished
surveying at Koloa, where he has been
Lihue was finally reached, where
Secretary Taylor attended to the important
business intrusted to him, and
then found time to look into matters
connected with the Agricultural Bureau.
He put up at the Fair View Hotel,
which he describes as a pretty
place, cool, and the wants of guests
well looked after by Mr. W. H. Rice,
Jr., who, by the way. Is soon to become
a benedict and is building a new
cottage for himself and bride. The
telephone system on Kauai is highly
spoken of, and that is to be expected,
for Superintendent Hogg is a hustler.
On President Dole's birthday Judge
Hardy had on exhibition a photo of the
President when he was 1G years of age.
It is doubtful if the President would
recognize himself. Mr. Hofer, bookkeeper
at Lihue, was thrown from his
horse a day or two ago, and is now
nursing a sprained ankle. The Living
Question Club, of Lihue, gave an afternoon
entertainment and tea at Grove
Farm on the 23d, which was a pleasant
affair and well attended. The return
trip was made on the W. G. Hall, and
it was rather a rough voyage.
Kauai News Notes.
In a letter from Lihue, Kauai, received
on the W. G. Hall Sunday, and
dated April 24th, are contained the following
items of interest:
At the coroner's inquest, held here
on last Monday, a verdict of justifiable
death was rendered in the case of the
Chinaman, who was killed in the recent
Makaweli plantation had a little Chinese
riot on last Wednesday. A policeman,
who was sent there to arrest
a Chinaman for an offense, was attacked
by about 20 of the latter's
They were gotten the best
Lihue mill has stopped grinding in
order to make the contemplated im
provement of a new mill. Work has
already begun on this.
Considerable Indignation has been
expressed here at the reports in the
Honolulu papers that the Chinese are
worked overtime and that they receive
no extra pay therefor. Lihue planta
tion always pays its laborers extra for

Department, has been at Makaweli. Ko

MR. EDITOR: I notice in a late issue
of your paper an article about the
lately organized Wailuku Club, in
which my name appears as an officer,
associated with a Dr. Armltage and
one Mr. George Hons fa person who
formerly ran' a "club" in your city). I
wish to say I am neither an officer
or a member, or in anway connected
with the above "club." By correcting
your error jou will greatly oblige

Wailuku, Maui, April 22, 1897.
The Old Mission.
Quite recently the old Mission house
on King street has been entirely renovated
and made to look as nearly like
its original appearance as possible. But
one or two minor changes have been
made. H. J. Rhodes, at one time the
Government nurseryman, occupies the
Mission house, and is using the
grounds as a nursery for propagating
plants. He has a number of beds containing
choice varieties ol asters and
pansies, as well as boxes with many
thousand choice palms and ferns. It is
Mr. Rhodes' intention to build a large
hot-house within a few weeks and a
wire rose house, where he hopes to
grow roses without fear of beetles.
Just now his attention is paid to the
asters and pansies which he uses for
boutonneires or table decorations.
SERENADED THE PRESIDENT
Band Goes to Waikiki on a Morning
The Hawaiian Band, in two busses,
started from the Drill Shed at 7 a. m.
yesterday, and went out to the Wai
kiki home of President Dole, where
they serenaded him in honor of his
53d birthday. The President expressed
himself in terms of surprise at the
serenade, and, after thanking Prof.
Berger and the boys for their kindness,
treated them to light refreshments.
Included in the program was the
"President's March" and a cornet solo
by Charles Kreuter.
After finishing at President Dole's,
the band came tpward town and stopped
outside the residence of James B.
Castle to serenade the quarantined
people at that place. Minister Cooper,
on the inside of the fence, thanked the
boys heartily for their kindness on be

with him in exile, and then took a
snap-shot at them, so as to have pic

hundreds of communities. Where ever
