The tramway people are making good I
progress in laying their track, which
now extends nearly to Waikiki. The
presence of the rails, which are laid close
to the mauka side of the road, reduces
what was originally rather a narrow
driveway, to a strip altogether unsuited
to the large amount of travel which
passes over it. This, of course, is not
the case with the whole road from Pa waa
outward, but only with that portion of it
r.hich runs through the flats and tule
marshes. Here, the road is not only
narrow, but being raised several feet
above the adjoining land, the result of
being run off the side would be particu
larly unpleasant as well as dangerous.
As the laying of the track, and the ac
companying partial break-up of the face
of the road, will necessitate at least a
partial re-grading and remaking of the
same, it would appear as though the
present was a very favorable and con
venient time for making the proposed
improvement. It would certainly cost
less to do it now, while the other work
on the road is under way, than at some
future time.
Personal Notes The Walmea Term The
Rising Star in Art.
Ililo residents are glad to welcome
homo Mrs. L. Severance from a visit of
over a year in America. Also Mr. and
Mrs. J. A. Scott and child, of Wainaku,
.from a visit to America and Canada.
Eighty cases were on the calendar
when the Court opened at Waimea. It
seems unfortunate that so many people
are compelled to stay any time at such
an out-of-the-way place, where there are
sufh miserable places to eat and sleep,
and so few of them. The Government
should send a portable hotel there.
Hiio has a curiosity in the person of a
blind young Hawaiian who blows an
immense reed whistle that sounds like
the whistle of the steamer Kinau. When
he finds out when the steamer will
arrive at Hilo, he goes from door to door
and reports the hour of arrival.
Mr. D. Howard Hitchcock leaves in
the Kinau to-day, 13th instant, for wider
fields. He intends to stay in Honolulu
six or eight weeks, if not longer, setting
up his studio there. He takes vith him
a number of interesting studies and
several new pictures, showing widely
different phases of our island scenery
notably one of Kilauea by twilight, that
gives a full view of both mountains,
with the north banks and flow of the
crater, and the. sulphur banks to the
right an exceedingly comprehensive
view. Another, of the historic Kawai
hao at sunset, gives an impression of
peaceful quiet and brilliant, though sub
dued coloring, which shows the spirit
of Mr. Jules Tavernier's teaching and
the ambition and talent of our young
artist under his training. BesjLdeB these
ha ba3 on hand a few unfinished pictures
of woods and valleys hereabouts, and
quite a number of island wood panels, in
which, I must say, he excels in putting
bits of bright, tropical scenery on to a
small surface. On his arrival at the
capital, he would be delighted to receive
clla from all those who are favorable to
art, and any person having capital will
find a capital way to dispose of it, and
encourage home talent. J. A. M.
Hilo, November 15.
Another Side of the Story Correspon
dence of a Sydney Paper.
The special correspondent of the
Sydney Telegraph, writins from Apia,
October 15, give3 Sarnoan news of a kitid
that has not previously come this way.
The writer says that the presence cf two
Inilish war vessels in the harbor had
led the insurgents to believe that Eng
land would espouse the side of their
King, and " there is no doubt the pres
ence of the warships ha3 been used by
some of the disaffected white residents
of Upolu to incite the supporters of Ma
taafa to further rebellion.' Some fifteen
real Britishers were not consulted, this
correspondent alleges, in a petition pre
sented to Admiral Fairfax asking that
one of the war ships should be allowed
to remain for the protection of English
residents. "This is another way," he
comments, " the would-be rulers of
Samoa show how matters political ought
to be conducted." The Admiral decided
to leave the Lizard in the harbor till she
could be relieved by some other vessel.
" Since the sailors" (from the Adler)
" have been ashore" (guarding the pro
perty of the Deutsche llandels Company)
the policy of Brandeis, the adviser to
King Tamasese, has been one of peace,
preferring to wait the outcome of events
without any further loss of life. On ac
count of so much shooting from boats
and on shore recently, to the danger of
the white residents of the beach, liear
Admiral Fairfax left instructions with
Captain Pelley,of the Lizard, that should
any firing take place from any boats
within a certain radius of the beach,
Captain Pelley was to fire over trie boats.
If no notice was taken of this caution, he
was to immediately fire at and sink
them. To prevent any shooting from the
seaward by the Tamasese party. Brandeis
has removed the whole of Tamasese's
forces, lately at Mulinuu, to a place
called Saluafata, a portion of the Atua
district, some fifteen miles to windward
of Apia. This move practically removes
all immediate danger to the residents of
the town.
"While the followers of Tamasese
were snugly ensconced at Mulinuu
Point,- the traffickers in firearms were
loud in their anathemas against the ad
viser to Tamasese for not letting his
men out of Mulinuu to meet their oppo
nents away from any German property.
mere is no aoubt opportunity is every
thing; but when a section of traders
wish to see this splendid race of natives
fighting one another, simply to enable
more ammunition to be blown away, it
is time that pressure should be brought
to bear at Washington to prevent the
American residents of Samoa from sup
plying the natives with firearms. Eng
glishnien and Germans here are liable
to severe penalties for such a grave
The letter represents Tamasese's
forces, since removal to the Atua dis
trict, to be mobilized and numbering
nearly 3,000 men, who are well armed and
have an excellent supply of ammunition.
"talking man" from each side has
gone to Savai, to compete against one
another for securing the following of 500
warriors there. "Whichever side the
Savai contingent decide on taking it will
make a great difference should the op
posing forces come to close quarters.
Mataafa, or the new Kiner Malietoa. is
described as a very sensibleand thought
ful man. He wrote a characteristic let
ter to the German Consul, Mr. Becker,
announcing that, as he now ruled the
town and land of Apia (ueutral territory;,
he had appointed the pilot and the iud;e
and was about to write their commissions.
"But one thing," he continues, "that
hinders me from closing upon all these
matters for the prison house and police
these days, I must be very careful, be
cause there mii:ht be something which
may prop against the feeling of the Ger
man Government, as the gentlemen of
j'our Government is judge and pilot for
this reason I do these things first asking
your Excellencv's permission." He
signs, "Malietoa, King of Samoa." to
this humble note.
The Telegraph concludes in a pro-
German strain as follows: "There was
a little excitement along the beach last
Friday morning when it was discovered
that during the night the Tamasese
party had left Mulinuu. The Tamasese
flag was hauled from the flagstaff. In
its place the red, white and black mer
cantile flag of the German nation was
hoisted, much to the consternation of
the townspeople. In a few weeks, how
ever, I expect to see the Imperial flag of
Germany floating gaily at the flagstaff
at xYiunnuu. When this is done the
Samoan difficulty will be at an end, and
not tin men."
The Baseball Expedition.
" Outing" for November has an illus
trated article on the baseball expedition
to Australia. At the head is a picture
of the steamship Alameda, while three
groups of portraits appear in the body-
the first comprising Messrs. Ward,
Lynch and Anson; the second, the
Chicago team, and the third, the All-
America team. A vignette of Mr.
Spalding is inserted at the beginning of
me article, juagmg nv tnat of Mr.
At. J T t . m - V
impson, nowT in Honolulu, the portraits
are excellent likenesses. The " plan of
campaign" given oy Mr. Lynch says he
would try to detain tha Alameda's de
parture trom ban h rancisco from 2 to 8
o'clock on the 17th, " so that we mav
play our farewell game the dav we
leave." It is to be hoped this part will
not be carried out, as it involves a risk
of not reaching Honolulu in time to play.

pitching a livelier if not a more baffling

tomed to. He often had three strikes
against a batter before a ball was called,
and it was noticeable that very few balls
were called before something decisive

A letter from Norfolk Island dated
October 5th, to the Auckland Herald,
reports whaling there progressing very
satisfactorily. Ten whales had been
captured, and a good season is antici
pated, as the whales are plentiful and
show good chances. The American
whaler Niger and the Petrel are the only
vessels named except passing merchant
men and warships.
Represented at Two Exhibitions Mel
bourne Centennial and Sydney "Wo
men's. Mr. II. II. Williams, Hawaiian Com
missioner to the Australian Centennial
Exhibition at Melbourne, has been heard
from. He has established a Hawaiian
court for the small exhibit from this
country, which attracts attention far
beyond the proportion of its size. Some
visitors are said to have been so pleased
with the representations of civilized life
and .activity here as to determine them
to go to Europe by way of - these Islands
instead of the Suez route, as originally
intended. Mr. Williams is more than
satisfied with the cordiality and gener
osity of his reception and treatment.
The Exhibition of Women's In
dustries and Centenary Fair was
opened at Prince Alfred Park, Sydney,
on October 2d. "The undertaking," a
Sydney paper says, " owed its origin to
the determination of a number of ladies,
whose names are associated with many
good works, that an exhibition of some
kind should be held in the capital of the
mother colony in celebration of the Cen
tenary of Australia." Lord Carrington,
Governor of New South Wales, was ex
pected to open the Exhibition, but he
considered it more appropriate that Lady
Carrington should perform the ceremony.
Among those mentioned as witnessing
the opening ceremonies was Mr. E. O.
Smith, Consul for Hawaii.
The Town and Country Journal, in
reporting the Women's Exhibition, men
tions in detail the contents of a large
show case near the centre of the hall,
containing sixty-seven catalogued articles
forwarded, through Mr. Hoffnung, by
the King of the Hawaiian Islands. The
feather cape, bed quilt and pillow covers
are noted as "the most striking articles,"
and are described with much praise.
"The most surprising exhibit of all these
strange and peculiar things ' the report
concludes, "is a primitive telephone,
which invention has been in common
use in the Hawaiian Islands since 1800,
very much to the credit of this intelli
gent race of people."
It is to be hoped that His Majesty's in
teresting exhibit will be added to the
small collection at Melbourne before the
close of that gr?at Exposition.
His Majesty returned to town by the

The racific Cable.
Sir Julius Vogel, the ex Premier of
New Zealand, is working hard in London
for the Pacific cable. He is unfavorable
to the constructing of a cable
from Van-
couver to the colonies when
a much
shorter route could be obtained from a
point south of San Francisco. To talk
of carrying the line through Britislrter
ritory solely was absuru, and would offer
special inducement for a hostile power to
cut it in time of war. He doubts whether
capitalists could be found to carry out
the project, and believes his own scheme
would recommend itself in preference.
Reports credit Sir Julius with having
under way a huge financial scheme for
purchasing the present cable to Australia,
and constructing one from America.
