The annual meeting of the Ha waiian Rifle Association was held at the Arlington last evening.

The charter members of the new musical society met last Evening in the Y. M. C. A. hall to hear reports from appointed committees and to complete its organization. The meeting was called to order with Mrs. C. L. Wight presiding. A report was read from the com mittee on constitution and by-laws. After some amendments the re port wa3 adopted.

A large number of singers have signi fied their intention of joining the society. LANDLORD WANTS RENT. The Property of the Holomua to be Sold at Auction. S. C. Allen has a newspaper plant on his hands, and not knowing just what to do with it, has decided to put it up at auction. The plant is the property of the Holomua Pub lishing Company. The property has been distrained for rent, and will be sold on the 22d inst., unless a settlement is made before that date. The probabilities are that the sale will not come off as it is said that several of the stockholders in the company will furnish the re quired bonds. The Holomua has changed hands several time3 during the past three years. At one time it was in the hands of G. J. Waller, who held a blanket mortgage. He disposed of the plant and good will to an agent of Mrs. Dominis,' who in turn sold it to the present company, of which Charle3 15. Wilson is said to be the head. The paper is hostile to the Government, and occasionally the editor, Edmund Xorrie, has been arrested on charges of alleged sedi tious utterances. At present the editor has a charge of libel against his name preferred by the Govern ment. 1 t i The Kawaiahao Fair will be held cn the 14th and 15th insts. The affair was planned to raise money with which to repair the roof of the old stone church. It will be held at the armory on Beretania street. Keep your friends abroad posted on Hawaiian affairs.

There ar many excp'iliiisly intirostin points in th career of (ic-noral (Jrant that havo iivrr In.rn i.ial public, ami ir i- only vv'h'.n thf-y rome out from tho? who knew him b-t that they ary lik.-ly t;- b uinlT.tootl by the public at large. The last prominent appearanco Cf (Jf.-neral CIrant before tho public avus luring liis trip in company vrith II n. Ropcgo Crinkling through th vet in IS SO in tho Garfield campaign. For fomo time there ha:l been considerable iloobt as to whether Conkling would take tho stump, but after tho farnou.- trip of Garfield to New York he did so. The first speech was made at Warren, tho capital of the old Garfield congres sional district. Conkling was at his best, and tho 10,000 people who turned out to seo and hear him were delighted. From Warren tho special car that was at the disposal of tho Conkling party was taken to Cleveland, where a second speech was made. While at this place Captain C. E. Henry, who was at that time connected with the postofflce de partment, took a large package of let ters to General Grant which had been forwarded to this point. The general opened them one after another and glanced hastily through their contents. Finally bo came to ouo dated Denver, at the contents of which ho laughed immoderately. Captain Hen ry, who had seen him many times and under many circumstances, says that ho never saw him so much amused before. Several times he tried to stop laughing, and the fit would take him afresh. Of course every one present was in terested to know the cause of his amuse ment. Finally he turned the letter over to tho captain and asked him to read it out loud for tho entertainment of thoso present. Tho letter related an incident somewhat as follows: It appears that tho name "U. S. Grant" appeared cu tho register of one of the leading hotels of Denver, and a drunken man and bul ly from ono of tho mining districts be came anxious to see the owner of the name. He made considerable nois9 around tho houso and declared that he was going to "lick old Grant." The name had been signed by Duck Grant, tho general's son and namesake. Taking in tho situation at once, tho clrrk of tho hotel led tho man to tho dining room door and pointed out a muscular man who was eating dinner. "That is General Grant, " said the clerk. "Wait till he is through dinner, and you can seo him." Tho would bo fighter waited patient ly near the door till tho muscular diner had finished and sauntered out. Ap proaching him, he struck out for a fight. Tho stranger did not know what tho causo of tho attack was, but ho was ready for it, and ho knocked down tho pugnacious man who was so anxious to "lick old Grant." Recovering himself, tho man who was making tho attack camo at tho stranger again, only to be very badly punished. Tho largo stran ger was about to throw tho drunken man down stairs when sorao ono inter fered and stopped tho fight. "I must find out tho namo of that man who defended my name," said tho general, still laughing. I will send him 100 if it is tho last money I ever have. Just think how badly I might have been punished if I had been there!" And with this ho went on opening his letters. George A. Robertson. OCCUPATIONS OF WOMEN. One llreak In New Hoots and Another VaJie lio. (Special Corresi-ondence. London, Nov. 8. Ono has only to walk along the crowded portion of Re gent street or invade the aristocratic Bond street to bo convinced that the English woman has not been behind her American cousin in creating new pro fessions. Very uniquo ones have been started, ami tho English aristocracy is busy making history in a mercantile fashion. Tho word "gentlewoman" in England means nothing but restriction of every ort. When tho American girl says, "What is tho use of being who I am if I cannot do as I please?" the English woman queries, "I should like todoir, b':t suppose people should fancy I was odd:" A lew have, however, cer tainly, broken away from a conventional niodo of thought and have been pioneers in several original professions. One wo man, in preference to giving up her dainty bandbox of a homo in St. John's Wood, has becomo a window draper. She chooses and buys the material for curtains and hangings. She drapes them as well. Not only is sho employed in private houses, but sho decorates the windows of tho smaller shops. A daugh ter of one of England's prominent Rad icals is what is called a "suggester. " This enterprising woman selects all the articles for a well appointed home. She chooses, buys and selects everything from the toasting fork to tho Gobelin tapestries. Sho orders everything from tho tons of coal to tho butter. Not until the family in whose service she is em ployed sits down to a well appointed meal in their own home docs she dare present her bill. I waited a wholo hour in the vicini ty of Holbom viaduct to catch sight of the girl who advertises "to break in new boots." It is needless to say that it was her feet mere than her ingenuity that interested me. Another washes and exercises dogs. She may be seen any morniug in Coven t Gardens exercising a regiment of canines belonging to rich women. There are several women who arrange dinners and wash and put away china in tho morning, and in tho even ing reap tho benefits cf their own in dustry by sitting down as guests to eat the dinner they superintended. The woman who does shopping for country peoplo has a lucrative trade. There are many who constantly call upon her for aid, possibly because the English wo man does not shop in the same fashion as the American. Maud James Chilton.
