Hawaii Not Pleased With Her
FEARS CUBAN ANNEXATION;
Think It Would Hurt the Sugar Industry.
MANY MARINE ACCIDENTS
Romantic History of the Afong Family
and the Interest Excited Over
the Immense Estate.
Special Correspondence of The Star.
HONOLULU, October 23. lOOfi.
Our community is much exercised about 1
the possibility of the annexation of Cuba as [
a consequence of the late political disorder i
in that island. Of course, we of Hawaii ,
nre entirely opposed to such a consequence, I
because apparently it would be the ruin of
our sugar-producing: interests, which are
the life of our whole business. That Is, we
believe that the admission of Cuban sugar i
Into the Cnited States, duty free, which 1
would follow annexation, would more than j
supply the whole sugar consumption of the
country, which would reduce the current
price thereof below the cost of production
On the other hand, the idea has been advanced,
with much show of probability,
that were Cuba annexed she would come
under the present severe restrictions in the j
United States upon the employment of Chi- j
nese and other foreign laborers; this would, 1
as it does in Hawaii, so increase the cost t
of production as to greatly restrict, if not 1
destroy, the sugar business in Cuba, so as

as well as to beet-sugar culture on the '
mainland. But we distrust this. Our best
hopes are based upon the manifest extreme
undeslrableness of the Cuban population as I
members of the American nation. To an- !

We have been having an experience In
Hawaii of a cognate sort upon a small
scale, some account of which I tender for
the attention of your readers. About six
years ago. in searching for additions to our
laboring population, we succeeded In Importing
about ,'1,0<N> Porto Ricans, including
women. They were, perhaps, not a fair
representation of their people, and no doubt
included much of the refuse of the towns.
At any rate, tliey proved bad to a degree,
and have far exceeded in both viciousness
and incapacity and other class of immigrants
whom we have tried. They are
Spanish mulattoes of low grade, physically
and mentally. Whether or not they are
inferior to the Cuban country population, I
have no means of knowing. They are compounded
of the same races.
Flea for the Porto Ricans.
I can best begin to illustrate the social
standing of these Porto Ricans by presenting
extracts from a recent plaint or protest
published by five of apparently their representative
men, evidently of low intellectual
grade. It is both pitiable and pathetic in
its statement of the scorn which the name
of Porto Rico has earned in Hawaii and its
expression of resentment thereof. It is
jfiiuifu ill II1VII ?>?II iiii|>v i i trv i Uiigncii.
"There are not doubt that we Porto
Rirans were and still are the objects of the
hate and odious reprimend from the whole
people of Hawaii, whose hostile attitude
lias kept against us for the long term of
about six years.
"It is so tlirue that there corns with us
several erimminal whose bad sentiment and
unmoral life bring merely the fam and bad
name thyy won.
"Let us say that the crimminals with us,
coining to Hawaii, were the very few and j
that they are going away as they were all
ways tne same auuiors ana re-autnors 01
ones and another causes."
"It is to unkind for a people under the
name of American to ill-treat and spid at
the face of some other with the same right
ol' human under the sun for the only reason
that they iliink that the ill-treated and
face's spiding are very poor intelectualy as
ir.aterialy and for the late have't a representation
of his own with sime inteligence
to deffend them."
"Beside that every ignorant of Hawaii
believe himself five hondred time great and
noble than a Porto Rican, there is our
country occupying a low concept and a disirrarefnil
name in the brain of each inhah
itant of thin country, anil there come the
vile Insult not yet from the common people
solely, but for some other?in our opiniononly

curred two yearn ago. when the son of a j

with a l'orto Kican engaged in a s i?lr. depredation,

Unhappily for the useful effect of the i

their appearance a l'orto Kican. named !
Montavo t'olon. was arrested and identified !
by his victims, on whom he had used a
sharp dagger when they Interfered with Ills
burglaries In two separate houses on the
same morning. And about the same time
comes word from Vaiparai-n that the sugarloaded
schooner Atlas has put in there from
Honolulu to obtain a new crew. Out of a
company of twenty-six shipped al Honolulu

worthless. It does not now look as if our

Iticans. But one fancies that you had better
make very sure thereof before you take
them in as members of your national family.
I think It is generally believed that
there Is no more objectionable blend of
races on this globe than that of the negro
and the Spaniard. Each race possesses
many good qualities separately. But the
combination of the two appears to bring
out the worst qualities of each peculiar
strain. America has Cuba for a near neighbor;
but national Intermarriage is by no
means a necessity. Most fortunately the
gulf stream separates them, if by a narrow
channel. Let the two races continue to live
as eeparate peoples. There is no tie of
consanguinity, none of language, none of
political habit or sympathy. They are
geographically separated, so far that no
political or social friction need arise. Let
the two peoples remain apart! This, I
hope and believe, will be the sober concluhope
and believe will be the sober conclusion
of the American people.
Hanjr Ships Stranded.
Honolulu has been having a singular experience
In the stranding of three large
steamers In rapid succession. The sister
glint ships of the P. M. S. 8. Co., the Manchuria
and Mongolia, both suffered, and the
United States transport Sheridan also
stranded. The Manchuria ran upon Walmanala
reef twenty miles east of Honolulu
August 'if). On August 30 the Sheridan
stuck upon a reef twenty miles west of this
city, and on September 18 the Mongolia
slipped onto a reef at Midway I., the cable
station 1,200 miles west of us. The Manchuria
was pulled off from her perilous
position after twenty-seven days of effort.
The Mongolia got ofT after five days, barely
In time to escape a destructive gale. The
Sheridan continued in peril for thirty-seven
days, hut fortunately during all this time
the pacific character of Hawaii's ocean remained
undisturbed. The two large ships
have already made their way under their
own steam to San Francisco, where they
will receive extensive repairs. The Sheridan
will have to be towed thither. Her
plates are badly strained and opened by
her bumping on the reef.
The two ships beached have received
heavy Injuries to their machinery, which
were measurably repaired by our great
Honolulu Iron works. Unfortunately, we
have no dry dock, and only a small marine
railway, not adapted to large ships. In
overdue time we may hope for the completion
at Pearl Harbor of the splendid dry
dock, which Is planned and located, but
whose construction has not yet been ordered.
But our traffic of large steamers is steadily
increasing. With the immediate opening of
the Tehuantepec isthmus transit It Is sure
to grow rapidly, without waiting for the
Panama canal. It would seem to be an Imperative
necessity to proceed at once with
tlie construction of Pearl Harbor dry dock
as a hospital of refuge for this great central
steamer traffic of the Pacific.
Honolulu had the great pleasure of extending
a most satisfactory hospitality to
our shipwrecked guests on the three ships,
and one without cost to ourselves, through
the liberality of the ship owners in providing
for their passengers at our hotels, and
(n iiltimotnlir fni-n>ar/lin(T tknm tn Virilr rl fx a _

The successive reports of disasters
were startling:, especially when the
floating of the Manchuria and the stranding
of the Mongolia were announced by simultaneous
telegram and cablegram. The Manchuria
had the services of the distinguished
wrecking expert, Capt. Metcalf. It is especially
noticeable that in each case the three
ships were pulleu off by the power of their
own winches, exerted upon hawsers led to
large anchors sunk at some distance astern.
The power is applied successively to the different
hawsers, one tautening, while the
others slacken. All application of direct
towing from other ships to one fast upon a
reef seems comparatively unavailing. It
fails to apply the steady, unyielding strain
which is necessary.
Story of Afong.
Many of your readers will probably feel
an Intapout in tho fnrtnno? nf tHr? nnffind
very worthy Afong family of Honolulu,
whose founder and father lately deceased
at his home In Macao, China, where he is
understood to have had a large Chinese
family. Chun Kong, or Afoug, was a Chinese
mercantile gentleman, wno acquired a
considerable Mrtune in Honolulu, partly by
a successful sugar plantation near Hilo.
His wife here was a Miss Fayerweather, of
one-fourth Hawaiian blood, by whom he
had thirteen daughters and three sons, all
of whom, except one son. are living, and,
except one daughter, married. The twelve
daughters were all married to reputable
wnne gentlemen. mostly in proressionai lire.
One of them lives in California, as the wife
of Rear Admiral Whiting, U. S. A. Mrs.
Afong lives in her tine residence in Honolulu
with a majority of her daughters, established
in their own homes in various
parts of the city, some of them with large
families. With the usual exaggeration the
Afong family have been otten written of
in American papers as being millionaires. I
do not suppose that the old gentleman's fortune
ever reached a million, but cannot say.
Comfortable apportionments of property
were usually made to the children upon
their marriages, but nothing ljke large
Approach of Elections.
With' the early approach of the November
biennini elections local nolitirs nre vcrv
much in evidence. As usual there are three
parties?republican democrat and liotoe
rule?the last the weakest. It seems probable
that the republican candidates will
more generally be elected, especially the
delegate to Congress, Prince Kuhio. There
will be, however, a strong opposition to several
republican candidates from the better
class of our voters, led by the "Civic Federation,"
which Is organized for the purpose
of directing such opposition to the
election of unworthy nominees of the leading
parties. The four gentlemen of high
character who form the executive committee
have Just published their list of candidates
selected as well as of those republican
and other nominees whom they most positively
object to. Those whom they most
strenuously oppose are C. F. Chlllingworth
for the senate, A. M. Brown for sheriff, H.
C. Vida for deputy sheriff of Honolulu, and
A. V. Gear for supervisor of Oahu county.
Of Brown they use the following language:
Our governor, G. R. Carter, has repeated- |
ly denounced the corruption of Sheriff
Brown in collusion with the gambling and
other vile resorts of the city. The republican
primaries have been largely organized
under his direction. Aside from this reform
Issue, which it is hoped will purge in
some good degree the republican party,
there is no prominent political nlovement.
The candidate for sheriff named by the
Civic Federation is Curtis" P. Iaukca, who
two year3 ago contested Prince Kuhio's
election as delegate, and now is the nominee
of the democrats as sheriff.
Kuhio will doubtless be re-eleoted as delegate.
Costs Spencer $15.
Spencer Walker, colored, was charged in
me ruuce * oun toauy wim maxing an assault
on Hattie Williams, also colored.
When Hattie took the stand she testified
that she was struck in the back of the head
with a whisky bottle and received a severe

she was asked in a questioning tone.
For answer she showed a wad of white
paste on her cranh'm, where the hair ought

Judge Mullowny agreed that Hattie had
hem assaulted by Spenser and imposed a
sentence of ?15 fine ou forty-five days in
Jailed for Hitting His Father.
Young Booze met old Bocze yesterday,
and at the conclusion the Kentucky standards
and claims of old vintage were maintained.
Young Booze, whose first name is
Albert, was arrested by Policeman Strobel
and was ar:aigne<l before Judge Mullowny
in the Police Court this morning on a
charge of assaulting Peter Booze.
The testimony in the case developed that
Peter was the father of Albert and had
chided his son for "hitting the booze." Albert
did not like the sentiments expressed
about his drinking habits, and the result
was that he hit ids father.
The young man will pass the next sixty
dava in lail.
Maine Association Meets.
A meeting of the Maine Association was
held Saturday evening at ?>'?i 6th street
northwest, at which vocal solos were rendered
by Mrs. Chase and Miss Eva Mills,
and a cornet and piano selection by Albert
Felter and Donald Rich. An interesting address
was delivered by Prof. N. C. Grover
ot the hydrographic branch of the United
States geological survey.
Successful Hunting Trip.
Messrs. Harry V. I^ansdale, William McCaffrey,
Fred H. Geyer, Richard Jacobs
and Samuel Clarke left Thursday last on a
gunning expedition In the vicinity of Colchester,
Va. The party began hunting at
10 o'clock a.m. and by 4:30 p.m. they had
captured forty-three rabbits. They report
that rabbits are plentiful, but birds are
very scarce. The feature of the trip was
that forty three rabbits were started and
all were bagged.

PORTSMOUTH, Va.. November 3.?The
battleship Virginia, while passing up to the
local navy yard, and when two miles this
side of Fort Monroe, about io o'clock this
morning, was rammed in the port quarter
by the Old Dominion steamship Monroe,
coming In from New York. The vessels
came together with much force, resulting
n the scarring of the battleship and the
displacing of some guns and fixtures and
shattering of two boats. One of the guns

several plates badly stove In, this damage
appearing above the water line, but It is
said that the greater damage was below
the water line. The vessel is said to have

bilges while coming up to the Old Dominion
Both the Virginia and Monroe were
steaming toward Norfolk at the rate of
about ten knots an hour, the Virginia leading.
The Monroe sought to pass her, but
gave it up, seeing she would run aground.
She could not be stopped in time to avoid
the collision, although her engines were reversed.
Statement by the Captain.
"Luckily no one was hurt," said Capt.
Seaton Schroeder, commanding the Virginia.
"In advance of the filing of my
official report I can only summarize the
damage to my ship as the smashing of the
captain's gig, a whaleboat, the davits and

us from astern, and the rule of the road

"It will take less time to repair the damages
resulting from the collision than to
make the altercations and repairs to receive

Other officers of the Virginia say that
the action of the battleship's screws, which
turn inward, is to create a tremendous
surface current, which may have drawn
the liner against the side, when she stopped
to avoid running aground, as she passed

Happiness in a Tablet.
Perfect Health for Every One Procured
at Small Cost.
How many times have you eat down at your
meals absolutely disgusted at the thought or sight
of anything to eat?
How many times have you fiat down at your
meals without the trace of an appetite, but just
because It wa^ "time to eat?"
How many times have you felt a gnawing, unsatisfied
"still-hungry" feeling in your stomach,
even after you were through eating?
How many times have you felt that "lump of
lead" on your stomach after eating, whether your
meal was well cooked or not?
And bow many times have you suffered a whole
lot of other things from your stomach that you
couldn't explain, but that made you grouchy, miserable,
out-o*-sorts and generally syur on everybody
It is safe to say you couldn't tell. You don't
keep track of those things, of course, but you
know you've suffered them. You probably have had
them for so long that they've become a habit with
you, and you have come to the conclusion that your
fate is to .suffer them indefinitely and perhaps forever.
And so men, much like horses standing unhitched
at the hitching post, think they're tied, and so
their habit makes them prisoners.
But no one need have dyspepsia, nor indigestion,
nor loss of appetite, brash, irritation, burning sensations,
heartburn, nausea, eructations, bad mem|
ory, loss of vim and vigor and the happiness that
comes from a healthy stomach and a good appetite
if he will only leave his old hitching post and
tie himself to a new one, one that will hold him
to neaitn, joy, amuuieo auu a ciear wina auu

That Indeed Is ileaftm! And you can get It la a
1 little tablet already prepared for the purpose. In
j Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, those little cherubs of
health and delight found In thousands of homes today.
Listen?one Ingredient of one of these pre|
clous little tablets will digest for you 3,000 grains
' of food.
This relieves your stomach of the work of digesting
until your stomach can get strong and healthy
again. Your stomach has been overworked and
abused. It's fagged out. It needs a rest.
Let Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets do the work of
your stomach. You will be surprised how fine you'll
feel after eating and how lusciously good everything
will taste to you. That's because the Tablets
are thoroughly digesting the food which your
touiach coultlu't. digest before.
Have these tablets on your diniog table, tand take
one or two after every meal without fa(p. Then
you will realise as never before that the human
stomach decides for every man whether he will go
forward or backward?and, besides, you'll forget
you ever had a stomach to torment yon.
