DAILY PACIFIC COMME11C1AL. ADVEKT1SEK, MAY 15. 1893.
MAUI NEWS. GliAPIHC ACCOUNT OF THE WAILUKU FIKE. Auzj ual Meeting of the Maul Keloff Aoctatlon Pmonkl Itema Social Event Stray .'rrlbljllo j . On Wednesday, the lOUi inst., about l:4t v. sr., the keeper of t. Wailuku jail discovered the house of the manager of "ailuku plantation to be on lire. In great alarm he imme diately tou-khI hi neighbors, and to gether they rushed up the hill to the scene of the conflagration. They found the beautiful building com pletely wrapt In flames, and were powerless to do aught, save to watch its rapid destruction. At 12:30 A. M. everything L .1 been consumed; there was no pile o'i- ruins, very stick had been burned and there was nothing to mark the site save a brick chimney In the rear and the large fireplace toward tho foreground. Kven the beautiful rose bushes, palni, limes, ferns, etc. all were either withered or consumed. The only structure left landing on the premises was a small house contain ing the electrical apparatus. The furniture and other household efFects belonging to the Walbridges had been sold at ajction the day before, and upon the day of the lire had been re moved by the different purchasers. Mr. C II. Wells, the new manager, was indeed most unfortunate, for be sides some household goods purchased at the sale, he had that same day brought some valuable paintings from Walhee (his former residence), and of course these were not spared by the flames. His loss is estimated at about $700. At the time of the lire, the dwe'ling had no inmate, Mr. Walbridge having vacated it several days previously, and Mr. Wells being about to take up his residence there. It Is the general opinion on Maui that the burning was caused by in cendiaries, and the police authorities are hard at work upon the case. What ever has been discovered by them has not as yet been divulged, though it is rumored they are following up certain clews with hopes of success. The cane field in front of the house caught tire, but no considerable dam age resulted, as the llames were quick ly extinguished. The whole event took place so sud denly and so quietly that with a few exceptions people did not know of it till the next morning. One family living across the street knew nothing of it till daybreak. The building destroyed was erected under the careful direction of Mr. Walbridge onlv a few years ago, and was perhaps the finest modern resi dence on Maui. It was provided with electric bells and lights from a most excellent plant, the storage batteries being run by a water-wheel near by. Through economical management the building cost less than $6000, but it would take $10,000 to replace it. It is said to have been well Insured. Public sentiment is strong in stating "bat this outrage (the incendiarism) a committed to gratify some per il spite for a fancied wrong. ?"-Ie it is true that Incident to the jge in managership of the planta wed.l quite a number of employees Thor. ien dismissed or have volun- 8t r.y left fc hardly seems possible " any of these men would commit n for so slight a reason. It is charitable to attribute it to acci caused by the stump of a cigar Hono abandoned by some of the team of org during the day, or to the ignition ! ome forgotten matches by the rats Ich had taken possession of the va- t rooms. , jf PERSONAL. MENTION. Mr. Sewell, late consul general to jnoa and a member ot a large firm shipbuilders in Maine, is visiting iV. H. Cornwell at Walkapu.

Hopke, Robinson and Rroad, who arrange the programme for the 4th of July races at Kahului, had been chosen, several speeches were made advocating fewer events and larger purses; the argument being that such a course of action would increase the v interest in racing by bringing forward better horses, thus acting as a stimu lus to improve the racing stock of the country. Mr. W. A. McKay moved a vote of thanks be tendered Mr. R. D. V al bridge, the retiring president, for his efficient services in the past. Shortly after 9 I. r., the assembly adjourned and accepted Mr. Wal brUge's invitation to take lunch at hN residence. Messn. A. F. Hopke, Wm. Robin son and C.

Diamond Head, May 14. 10 p. m. : Weather, cloudy ; wind, fresh northeast. The Amelia is taking in cargo. The Mikahala brought a broken roller from Kauai yesterday. The 4-master Hume will get away for the coast in a day or so with a cargo of sugar. There is a decrease of over twenty-five per cent, in the amount of shipbuilding work under way in Great Britain at present as com pared with thi3 time a year ago.' There is no prospect of a change for the better for some time to come. The a mount of idle tonnage is large and general trade does not promise immediate revival. Wages in the shipbuilding trades in Eng land will probably be reduced. The dock laborers trouble at Hull adds to the general depression, and taken altogether the shipping in dustry in England is having a bad time of it. Some authorities seem to think that this will continue for some time, but it is bad to prophesy in these days of electrical changes and a few months hence may see a more prosperous condition. Which ever way the tide goes, however, ir will serve the best purposes of out own merchant marine, which is now taking on new strength. New York Maritime Register. Circuit Court.

Tic rurstr cf the Mikahala Sud denly Expires. The man- friends of Fred Wil helm, for many years in the em ploy of the Inter-island steamship company, and lately purser of the steamer Mikahala, will be pained to hear of his death, which took place unexpectedly yesterday afternoon nt his residence in this city.
