Passenger on the Arawa Cherishes a Pair of Shoes Worn There. One of tbo passengers of the Arawa, who stopped here a short time on his way from Samoa to the Stats, Lw a worn and dilApetated pair of shoes which he will always cherish a a soavenier, and hacd down to his childrens' children. This gentleman was in Samoa at the time of the death of Robert Louis Stevenson. Shortly before his death, the great novelist request ed that Lis body be laid in a grave on the side of a hill which rose pre cipitiously in rear of his home. Naturally his friends were only too glad to follow the last directions of this man, who had won such a deep respect in their hearts. Bat, it was no easy task to perform. The hill is step and rocky and the climb a hard one at best. With the care that must be used in carrying the casket, this labor of love called for considerable physical endurance. The gentleman referred to, set ont with the party and before ho reached his home bad completely ruined the strong pair of shoes which be had put on for the climb. Though the torn' and worn leather represents the loss of a' few paltry dollars, it would take many times the purchase value to obtain those shoes now. NEW TONNAGE TAXES. Two Bills of Interest to the Own ers of Ships. Washington-, Dec. 2. Two bills of interest to shipping peoplt were introduced in the House today by Representative Fithian of Illinois. The legislation incorporated im them was recommended by Com missioner Chamberlain of the Na vigation Bureau of the Treasury Department in his last report. The first bill provides that gross net tonnage shall be the basis of computing tonnage taxes, and what is known as the 3-cent rate per ton is reduced to 2 cents, and the G-cent rate to 5 cents. These changes will not affect the de creased revenues, but will dim inish the taxe3 on sailing vessels, which are now eaid to be too high and will transfer a portion of those charges to steam vessels. The second bill changes the measurement law also to make it conform to those of Great Britain, Norway and other nations, and the object sought by the proposed leg islation is to diminish the amount of taxes which vessels of the United States have to pay in for eign ports.

Scott, Manager oi the Hilo Surar Company gives the following wonderful record of the working of the NATIONAL CANE SHRED 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 300 tons. This is fully 10 per cent, more than the best work of former years. "The three roller mill being 26 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 JNational Cane Shredder, recently erec ted bv the Company. And bv its use tne 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 quality. "I continue to find the megass from shredded cane better fuel than from whole cane. "The shredder has been working day and night for seven months and lias 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 ana engine reauire very little care or attention." G"Plans and specifications of these shredders may be seen at the office of Wm. G. Irwin & Co. L'd.

Agent for the Hawaiian Islands of the Richard's Lock Nut, which is an ordinary hexagon nut constructed so that it is impossible for the nut to become loose or slack, and fall off the bolt. It costs no more than the ordinary cold pressed iron nut and dispenses with the use of the loco washers, keys and split pins. Thil nut is now exclusively used on al the principal railroads and street cars lines in the United States. Samples and pamphlets furnished on application to the undersigned. 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 such a manner as to greatly enlarge the field of applica tion. Used until today only for the drawing off of liquids to a lower levI, 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 day. CST Estimates and plans furnish ed for new machinery and repairs. C.
