There has seldom been so large

and apt illustrations. The

Better Than Upset Price for Some
At 12 noon yesterday. Chief Clerk
Hassinger of the Interior Department
appeared in the hallway of the Execu
tive building and announced the sale
of two Government lots on Thurston
Avenue, Punchbowl Hill. There were
only two bidders, Mr. F. M. Swanzy,
representing Theo. H. Davies and Rep.
Achi. The upset price of Lot 620, 17,-
940 square feet was 5400 and it was
sold to Theo. H. Davies for $720. The
upset prcie of Lot 621, 30,192 square
feet, was ?750 and it was sold to Theo.
H. Davies for 51,550. The two lots,
then, brought ?2,270. The bidding was
very lively between Mr. Swanzy and
Rep. Achi. This was particularly so
in the case, of Lot 61 when the two
bidders increased the sum by $50 at a
time. From very good authority it
was learned that the upset price was a
fair one. This was recognized by Mr.
Swanzy but he was bound to have the
The Kahului Wharf.
Attorney General Smith, who is back
from Maui, says that work has teen
stopped on the Hawaiian Commercial
Company Kahului wharf, excepting to
strengthen the structure already up.
In fact operations ceased before the
issuance of an injunction on petition
of the Government. Mr. Smith scys
the wharf so ,far as built looks well
and gives fair promise of being an excellent
public improvement. It seems
the real question at issue is concerning
the dimensions of the structure.
Those in charge of building have not
the authority to speak for the Hawaiian
Commercial and until definite plans
are shown the Government will not
permit work to proceed. There is
really no opposition to actual wharf
construction if there be the customary
formal understanding with the Public

Upon taking up items under the
head of "Board of Health," Attorney-General
Smith asked if the commit
tees had conferred with the heads of
various departments when iteins un
der their departments were being- con
sidered by them. He had not found
this so in his case. To treat heads' of
departments in such a manner was, to
say the least, discourteous. He would
not treat his own cook in such a manner.
Rep. Gear spoke for the Finance
Committee, saying that the amount
asked for in the appropriation bill was
more than actually required ' by the
pay roll which had been received from
the secretary of the Board of Health.
There were but few changes in the
various items and these were made
with due consideration and with a full

Died March 21, 1S9S.
Sweet-faced lady hast thou gone?
Gone beyond this vale of tears?
Quickly thou hast glory won
Ended are thy earthly fears.
Silenced now, thy pleasant tones
Missed, thy charming happy ways.
Loved wert thou in many homes
Loyal, faithful, true always.
Thou like Ruth as told of old
Cheered Naomi's shadowed life
And "mid trials manifold
Proved the constant, loving wife.
Ah! farewell! earth closes o'er thee
Friend of past bright, happy days,
We'who knew thee always loved thee
And we name thee, now, with praise.
