down to his cell, he became quite
disturbed, making it necessary for
guards to be at his side to prevent
any violence. It was found that
these guards did not have a very
soothing effect upon the prisoner,
so one of his sisters was sent for.

Tuesday night at a late hour,
Mr. Henry Waterhouse tried his
hand at pacifying Jim Lane, invit
ing him to partake of poi out of the
same bowl. Lane looked queerly
at him for a while, but said noth

he was his friend. Lane answered
that he always was opposed to mis

be friendly to each other. He
would under no circnmstances dip
his finger into the poi bowl, but

A Native Story.
A native living in tqwn says
that he received a letter by the
W. G. Hall which informs him
that the arms, sent in the Kinau
for the Citizens' Guard at Hilo,
were captured at Mahukona by one
individual, single-handed and
alone. The Kinau was captured
also, so the letter states.

The Chinese Peace Commissioners left

newspaper reports to the effect that
his Government has given notice that
it would not receive Bhao, one of the
Chinese plenipotentiaries, because of
the latter's proclamations offering

Washington, Jan. 13. Senator
Hill was asked tonight by the World
correspondent if he not think Congress
at this eesslon should take the steps
necessary to bring about popular elec
tions of United States Senators.
"Yes," replied Senator Hill, 'I
think that Congress should give the
country not only the financial legisla
tion which it needs, but other appro
priate legislation demanded by the
best interests of the people. Among
other things it should pass is the pro
posed amendment to the Constitution
for the election of United States Sena

needed reform, the Importance of

JUST A FEW WORDS
on a subject
which we know will interest every one:
For years we have done the fine watch
repairing in Honolulu.
Difficult work of every description
which had formerly been sent to the
Coast, was first properly handled in our
Repairing Department. Such work as
CHANGING KEY TO STEM WINDERS
repairing complicated watches of every
description; demagnetizing; making by
hand any lost part of a complicated
watch ; in fact any difficult work pertain
ing to the repairing of fine watches is
our especial forte.
The number of watches which find
their way into our Bepairing Department
after having been through the nands of
numerous EXPERTS (?)ifbeyond belief.
Whilst we are at all times ready
and willine to do every conceiv
able kind and condition of a job
would it not pay you better to
brincr your watch to us in the first xxacx
and be assured of an honest amount of
work at a reasonable price, rather than
take it from one to another, causing you
delay and annoyance, to say nothing of
the greater expense 7

For Perfect Work
than you have been used to paying f eft-
inferior work right along.
As a matter of fact.the expehtC ?) who
cleans your watch with a pair of bellows
and a crow-bar for 50 cents makes more
money than the honest workman who
does an honest job and charges an
Because your watch is returned to you
running fairly well, it is no criterion that
it has been properly repaired. The great
annoyance attendant upon the repair
ing of a watch, is that 99 out of 93 cannot
tell if the work is well done but are
satisfied if the watch is keeping some
where near the correct time.
Who can see the jewel protruding half
way out of the plate, or worse, sunk down
through the plate, fastened in with a
little glne, or hammered in with a sledge.
now otten the xzfebt grinds off the
broken staff, sinks the jewel a little
lower, tells you he has put in a new
?taff and charges you a utile less than
the price and you go on your way rejoic
ing. But some day you will discover the
fraud, Euch work cannot list long. It is
dear at any price, which you soon dis
cover to your sorrow.
Moral: Mate no mistake; take it
where you know it will be well treated
and that is the lie pairing Department of
