FROM TWO TO FIVE EOLLARS A DAY. A. cry smooth J'Jan Attempted by an Ardent KoyalUt" Chinese Laborer Wanted for "Ills Plantation" Per cy' Latest Iode In the Flowery Kingdom. ffiThe communications given be low were sent tothe Foreign Office here by the Acting Hawaiian Con-Bul-General at Hongkong. C. P. Gardiner, the man mentioned, is more or less well known here. Some time ago he was in the em ploy of T. H. Davies & Co., by whom he was discharged. He afterward worked for several other firms, principally in the capa city of engineer. He was a very strong annexationist during the first part of last January's move ment, until he found that he could not get in office under the Provis ional Government when he imme diately "switched" and became, as 1 1 it A A. I ne 13 caiieu in me extract gweu below, an "ardent royalist." It is said that when he left here he went out to China as a subensineer on one of the China steamers. The followincr is the letter from J. J. Keswick : Hawaiian Consulate General,) Hongkong, 13th Dec, 1893. The Honorable Sanford B.Dole Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ho nolulu: Sir: T have the honor to forward herewith for the information of the Government, a notice in Chinese with translation, circulated here by a Mr. Gardiner. I also send two papers with paragraphs marked in connection with this man's visit here. Mr. Gardiuer called at this office some short time ago, statin?? that he wished to engage 150 or 200 Chinese to proceed to Honolulu to work on his plantations, and was informed that I could not render him cny assistance in the way of granting passports and I have not since seen him. I believe Mr. Gardiner worked his passage across from Honolulu in the engine-room of one of the steamers belonging to the P. M. S. S. Co. or the O. and O. S. S. Co. . I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obed'nt servant, J. J. Keswick, Acting Consul-Gene ral. The notice spoken of, translated, is as follows : NOTICE. It is hereby notified that the under signed agent issues permits to the Chinese to proceed to the port of Honolulu in the Hawaiian kingdom. They are to leave by the first steamer. The Chinese are only allovred to take with them their personal effects. They are not allowed to take other things with them, otherwise they will have to pay freight on same. The various plantations in Honolulu want to em ploy many Chinese laborers at pres ent. You Chinese who have not been to that port, need not fear that you will get.no work there. You are able' to make from $2 to S3 daily. If you have any doubt about my statement, just inquire of those who have been to that place, and then you will know the state of affairs there. With regard to the Chinese who are engaged this time, everything is done according to law, and tnere is no irregularity about it at all. If any of you Chinese wish to take your family or relatives with you to that port, they can have their passage at reduced rates. The fare (to Honolulu), including food, doctor's fees and port charges, is about !lo0. Ineugagiug the Chinese to go this time, the undersigned agent has not much time at his disposal. Therefore, no permits will be issued after 23d November. Sd.l Ka Tina (Gardiner), Victoria Hotel, Room No. 6. The 1st December is fixed for the departure from Hongkong. Upon arrival at the port, the passen gers are free to act as they like. They are not required to sign any contract. There are trustworthy merchants here who will receive the passage money first, and who will sign a bond to the effect that if the passengers are not allowed to land, the original amount j of money will be refunded, and that j no cash will be taken from them. Those who are desirous of going to j Honolulu are requested to apply to i Taang Honsang, of No. 29, Stanley street, 1st floor. Commenting on the above, the Hongkong Telegraph of November 16th says : In view of the fact that legislation in Hawaii has recently been directed especially to the admission of Chi nese merchants, laborere, and all other classes and that a Honolulu gentleman, Mr. C. P. Gardiner, is now in Hongkong on business con nected with the movement, a repre sentative of the Hongkong Telegraph called on Mr. Gardiner yesterday, and was courteously and readily sup plied with a mass of valuable and in teresting information having refer ence to the proposals now under con sideration. Mr. Gardiner came to Hongkong in the City of Itio from San Francisco, having left Honolulu several weeks ago only a day or two before the stranding of the Miowera. He has been for several years a resident of the Hawaiian kingdom, and takes an active interests in its politics, bein well known as an ardent royalists as, in fact, almost all the British, resi dents are, while the Provisional Gov ernment is mainly supported by Americans, favoring either annexa tion to the United States or an inde pendent republic. A KAUAI WEDDING. J. B. Alexander and Miss Auhasen United in Marriage. The German Lutheran Church of Lihue was the scene of one of the AM t 1 a a prettiest weddings that nas ever taken place on the "Garden Isl and," December 28th, 1893, when Mr. J. B. Alexander and Miss Ce cilia Auhagen were united in holy matrimony by Rev. Hans Isenberg. Promptly at 7 p. m. the bride, in a cream silk crepe gown trimmed with satin, her veil crowned with a myrtle wreath, entered the church leaning on the arm of Mr. W. H. Rice, who gave her away. Her bridesmaid was Miss Buhlert and the best man Mr. Francis Gay, of Makaweli. The church was beau tiiuiiy decorated; on tne organ masses of pink water lilies and cosmo heaped in artistic profusion, the altar was tastefully decorated, e altar was tastefully decorated, background of handsome palm a leaves set on an enect in pins and white.

Is enberg, where the couple received in the drawing-room bay window, which seemed planned for such an occasion, under a basket of white water lilies and maidenhair tied with satin ribbon. Delicate trail ing vines twined over tulle curtains made the loveliest of backgrounds. Most conspicuous amid the profu sion of decorations were two panels, one of delicate ki flowers, the other pink lilies and ferns, in which Mrs. Frank Hasting's exquisite taste was shown to advantage. The sitting- room was artistically decorated in every conceivable shade of yellow, making a striking contrast to other rooms which there is not space to describe. After a delicious supper, and toward the close of the recep tion, Mr. and Mrs. Alexander left for their pretty new home, which was adorned with both costly and handsome gifts, bearing with them tne nest wishes ot many sincere friends for a happy future. une ana all pronounced tne re ception the most enjoyable and in formal event of the season. White Blood. It was a Sandwich Islander who, on the strength of a Mother Hub bard gown and a parasol, claimed the deference accorded to members of a more civilized society. Most of all did she glory in the assumption that she was not so very black, after all. tl You haven't any white blood in your veins I saia a cruel mend to her one day. "Indeed I have !" indignantly exclaimed the lady. "Some of my family helped eat Cap?n Cook." Philadelphia Record.

We are pleased to present this from Rev. A. A. Williams, of tfct Sillsbea street Christian Church, Lynn, Mass. : M I see no reason why a clergyman, more th&a layman, 'who knows whereof ho a peaks, should hesitate to approve an Article of Merit and worth, from which he or his family hare been signally benefited, and whose commenda tion may serve to extend those benefits to others by Increasing their confidence. My wife has for many years been a sufferer from sever Nervous Headache for which she found little help. She has tried pany things that promised well but per formed little. Last fall a friend gave her a bot tle of Hood's Sarsaparilla. it seems surpris ing what simply one bottle could and did do for her. The attacks of hendache decreased la number and were less violent in their Inten sity, whilo her general health has been Im proved. Her appetite has also been better. From our experience with Hood's Sarsaparilla Z have no hesitation In endorsing ita merit. A. A. Williams. HOOO'3 P.'LLS are the ben famy cathartic, nUetnd effective.

Scarlet fever first shows itself with headache, vomiting, sore throat and high fever. Within twelve or twenty-four hours, a fine bright scarlet rash appears on the face and upper part of the body, soon spreading over the whole surface. After the third day it fades. After the eighth day the skin begins to peel in fine scales on the body often in large flakes from the hands and feet. This scaling lasts from four to six weess. Inere is danger of spreading from the time of the appearance of the rash until the skin has entirely peeled off. The flakes of dry skin are especially dangerous in spread ing the disease. Any person showing the early signs before mentioned should be immediate ly reported to the Health Officials. WILLIAM O. SMITH, President Uoard of Health. 3565 1510-3t ICcm Uiotrtlstnunts. E.O.
