Captain Barker, Who Was on the
Philadelphia, is Married.
lTlInc t Lawrence, Ki.- 1h Bride
an Author Gallant Captain Wi
Decidedly Popular In Honolalu,
The euave Barker, half diplomat,
wholly naval and thoroughly a gen
tleman, has been hit and made
fast by an arrow from Cupid's spe
cial White Squadron quiver. Cap
tain Barker is very well known
here as commander of the flagship
Philadelphia. It was he who was
in charge last December. It was
Captain Barker who was ready to
land with hi3 men to enforce Mr.
Cleveland's mistaken idea that the
Provisional Government would sur
render on verbal request. Through
all the trying time3 here Captain
Barker's conduct was such that he
earned the esteem of all. Captain
Barker is a practical, patriotic
American, and, with Admiral Ir
win, is a staunch advocate of the
acquisition of Pearl Harbor by tne
United States.
Captain Barker's bride is a liter
ary lady. Her novel, "The Bish
op's Conversion," is one of the sen
sations of the year. The following
brief account of the marriage is
from a newspaper of Lawrence,
At the home of Professor F. W.
Blackmar at 6 o'clock p.m. by Rev.
Dr. Marvin, ex-chancellor of the Uni
versity, Captain Albert 8. Barker,
late commander of the flagship Phila
delphia, U. S. N., was married to Mrs.
Ellen Blackmar Maxwell, sister of
professor Blackmar.
The wedding was strictly private.
Mrs. Maxwell is quite well known as
the author of 'The Bishop's Conver
sion" and other stories. Captain Bar
ker is well known on account of effec
tive service in the navy and as author
of "Deep Sea Soundings," a result of
three years cruise on the Enterprise,
and other important reports. The
bride and groom left on the evening
train for Chicago. Probably theywill
make Boston their home.
Arthur White Dons the Stripes and
Has His Picture Taken.
Arthur White, who shot the dar
key ball tosser, Wood, entered a
plea of guilty in circuit court yes
terday. Judge Cooper passed sen
tence at once. White was fined
$300 and ordered to spend twenty
fonr hours on the reef.
Vhite reported at the police sta
tion and was at once taken to Oahu
jail. His friend Ed. Hopkins
lost no time in settling the financial
part of the affair. In the afternoon
White was brought up town in his
striped euit for photographing. His
picture will be in the rogues' gallery.
Some of the young man's friends
are very indignant about this. The
police people simply carried out the
law. There was nothing else for
them to do. In this instance a
single day in jail places a man's
face among the "mugs" of "lifers"
and criminals of all degrees.
This case spoiled base ball for
the season of 18U4. Wood was the
best pitcher in the League and was
winning all the games for the Cres
cents. One day he "fell down" and
lost. Then he said he had sold
the game to White. The latter
made a stout denial, and a great
many thought Wood made up the
story. White's business was in
jured. He and another young man
lured Wood to Waikiki. Here
White used a cowhide on Wood and
shot him in the leg with a small
pistol. Wood wa3 trying to escape.
White said he only wanted to ecare
him. The friends of White have
been devoted to him in his trouble.
They declare there is nothing vici
ous about him.

Lumbermen Tie Again.
Bids for material for a shed over
the new Nuuanu wharf were

ers gave exactly the same figures
on material. The competitors were
Wilder Jc Co., Lewers Sz Cooke,
Allen fc Robinson.
The corrugated iron will be fur
nished by Wilder it Co., the ridge
way and hardwood by Allen &
Robinson and the hardware by
Hall & Son.
Mr. Ouderkirk will superintend
construction of the shed.
Loses Ilis Rifle.
There has been considerable talk
about Harry Klemme's retirement
from the Citizens' Guard. His
commission was from the Pro
visional Government. He dis
regarded the order to have this
document renewed under the Re
public. The authorities sent for
Mr. Klemme's rifle and he sur
rendered it.
Diplomatic Utterances of the Im
perial Cable Commissioners.
A Don't Cre" Tone to Their Kxpre
ion One Talk at San FrancU
co, the Other at Vancouver.
Interviews with the Imperial Ca
ble Commissioners have been pub
lished. Mr. Mercer gave his views
at Vancouver and Mr. Fleming at
San Francisco. Their views are
from one point highly interesting.
They read weil between the lines.
In expression for the public the
gentlemen assume a very indiffer
ent attitude. Here are a few sen
tences from the statements of each :
Mr. Fleming: If the Hawaiian Gov
ernment evinced any desire to meet
us, we were instructed to open nego
tiations and to point out how and
on -what terms the Hawaiian people
could secure the advantages of a tele
graphic eervice. After a number of
interviews with the principal officials
of the Hawaiian Government a cor
dial understanding was reached, and
lm5irtiire we left with them
a memorandum of agreement, the
terms of which we are prepureu w
recommend to those whom we repre
sent. We did not ask them to cede
any island or any portion of Hawaiian
farritnrv fn iiu. Vhat we did ask was
that they should lease to us Bird,
Necker, or some other uninhabited
island outside the mam group, proua
bly 300 or 400 miles from Honolulu,
to be used a3 a telegraph mid-ocean
station only. From thence a branch
line would be run to Honolulu. For
years the Hawailana have been offer
ing a subsidy for a cable to North
America, but though the project of a
cable to Ban Francisco has been dis
cussed for a number of years it seems
no nearer than it was at first. For my
part and I think it must be obvious
to every one I believe that a cable
ending at Honolulu would not be a
commercial success, for there would
not be sufficient business to warrant
it. With a cable touching at Honlulu
and extended thence to Australia
the situation is entirely different.
Mr. Mercer: Hawaii is, as It might
be called, the first station on the route
of a cable across the Pacific. Mind
you, I don't mean it is at all essential
that the cable should land at the Ha
waiian Islands. It is just as practica
ble to give Hawaii the go-by and make
the first landing stage on Fanning Isl
and. The distance is some six hun
dred miles further and the transmis
sion of messages would be somewhat
slower, but not enough to make
any great difference. From Fanning
Island there is a choice of a number
of routes by the way of the Gilbert
Islands or Fiji, or a number of other
ways, and all on British territory.
The idea that the Pacific is too deep to
lay a cable to Fanning Island is alto
gether erroneous and quite opposed to
science. It has been said that at a
great depth the pressure would be too
much for the cable. It would be noth
ing of the kind... Cables have been
successfully laidrat quite as great a
depth as that encountered on the
whole route across the Pacific. In
fact the great things that are to be
feared are shallow water where there
would be great friction on coral reefs
and also volcanic eruptions, which of
course might happen at any depth.
Will Be Music Hall Manager and
Goes to Work at Once.
It is settled that the lease of the
Music Hall is to be transferred to
W. R. Dailey, so well and favorably
known as a theatrical manager.
Mr. Dailey's plans with regard to
the house are not entirely settled.
He has decided for one th:ng to re
turn here next SpriDg with an at
traction. Whether he will bring a
company of his own or simply a
tenant for the house, he does not
know. He may before that time
come down with a troupe of some
"Some of the people have been
remarking that they would like a
season of opera," Faid Mr. Dailey
last evening. "That will be very
expensive it' it is any good, and I
think that if the venture is made I
should have guarantee from the
"Robert Downing, who is now do
ing tragedy at the California in San
Francisco, wants to come down
here. He would require a heavy
certainty. His engagement would
of necessity be short as his reper
toire would soon be exhausted.
"Upon returning to the States I
shall set the wheels in motion to
boom Honolulu as a show town. I
am undertaking to purvey to those
who wish to be amused and I shall
do the very best I can for them."
Mr. Dailey's present season has
only been fairly successful in the
box office. He came at the time
when most of the money is tied up.
Hereafter he will try and do busi
ness when sugar returns are com
ing in.

National Cane Shredder
Mr. John A. Scott, Manager
of the Hilo Sugar Company
gives the following wonderful
record of the working of the
DER, which was erected by
their works at the commence
ment of the crop just har
vested: "During the past week the
Hilo Sugar Company's mill ex
ceeded any of its former
records by closing the 125
hours grinding with an output
of 300J tons. This is fully 10
per cent, more than the best
work of former years.
"The three roller mill being
2G in. by 54 in. and the two
roller mill 30 in. by 60 in. The
first mill doing this amount of
work in an efficient manner
and with great ease, compared
with work on whole cane,
owing to thorough preparation
of the cane by the National
Cane Shredder, recently erec
ted by the Company. And
by its use the extrac
tion has been increased from
3 per cent, to 5 per cent, on all
kinds of cane, and in some
cases SO per cent, has been
reached; the average being 75
to 7S per cent., according to
"I continue to find the
megass from shredded cane
better fuel than from whole
"The shredder has been
working day and night for
seven months and has given
me entire satisfaction, having
shredded during that time
about seventy thousand tons
of cane, and a large part of it
being hard ratoons.
"The shredder and engine
require very little care or

Agent for the Siphon Water
Elevator, which is automatic, for
irrigation, city supply, farms, etc.
This invention as its name indicates
is based upon the principle of the
siphon known to the Ancients but
it is devised in sucb a manner asi to
greatly enlarge the field of applica
tion. Used until today only for the
drawing off of liquids to a lower level,
the siphon now becomes an
Automatic Water Elevator, which
under favorable conditions is en
dowed with great powers. In many
instances, land situated higher than
the irrigation ditch can be irrigated
at a nominal expense. The Siphon
Elevator is especially adapted for
such conditions, as it can elevate the
water from the main irrigation ditch
to a higher one, while the waste is
available for irrigating the lower
levels. The siphon elevators are
made of brass and iron in sizes
ranging in capacity of from two
hundred to three million gallons per
