o MAHY CUBES TO BE MADE Necessitated by the Erection of tho Y. M. C. A. Gymnasium. Old and Building Will Be Joined Giving Urn Indication That It Was Erected In Section. As previously announced in the Advertiser, the contract for the construction of the . M. G. A. gymnasium has been let, and Lucaa Brothers, the contractors, wuicom mence work as soon as possible. The addition to the present build ing will necessitate many changes, and in speaking of the alterations the Y. M. C. A. Review says : The main addition, containing the gymnasium and class rooms, will en tirely cover the large vacant lot ad- . . I 7. m. L..I1J1 TT.i.l joining ine present uuiiuiug ou xiumji street, and the bath rooms, lockers, etc., will be placed in a wing to be erected on the adjoining vacant lot on Alakea street. The porch will be changed, with a veranda extending along the whole front of the present bulldinsr. The exterior of the audi tions will be the same as the present building; old and new will show alike, civine no indication that it was erected in sections. Owing to the shape of the vacant lot to be covered, the gymnasium will not be a perfect rectangle in outline, out will do some what irregular in shape. Its average size being about 3oxt6 reel, wltn a height of 24 feet, and the room being clear of columns or other obstructions save a gallery at one end 14 feet above the floor, and reached by a stairway from the entrance hall of the present building. The baths will be of the latest de signs, as also the lockers, nearly one hundred In number, are directly con nected with the gymnasium also hav ing an entrance from the main floor. The reading room will be removed from its present location to the south side of the present building, and will be 18x22 feet in size and have splen did light on two sides and shelf room on the other sides. The parlor will remain in its position, but will b.e enlarged by the addition of the office of the general secretary, which will become an annex to the parlor, con nected by a large archway, and will be utilized as a game room. The secretary's office will be moved across the entrance hall, and occupy a part of what is now the reading room. This office will be large and so ar ranged that the secretary can com mand a view of all who enter the building or are engaged in the gym nasium. The rear, stairs to the audi ence room are removed, and the en tire floor space made available. An entrance is had to the rear of the au dience room by the stairs leading to the four class rooms over the gymna sium, and near this rear entrance to the audience room is placed a pantry, sink, etc., for use at socials when re freshments are served. The windows now in the wall at either side of the rostrum will be changed to the south side ofthe room. MASONIC TEMPLE SQUAD. Election of Officers and Other Business Disposed Of. Squad 5 of the Citizens' Guard met last night in the parlors of the Y. M. C. A. for the purpose o electing cflicers and attending to other business. Dr. C. B. Wood was made ser geant, Wray Taylor first corporal, H. H. Williams, second corporal, H. A. Parmelee, third corporal, and C. V. E. Dove, fourth corporal. Kamakau, a native living oppo site the residence of President Dole, was present at the meeting. On the first day of the outbreak he offered his services to President Dole saying that he wished some duty would bo assigned him. He was sent to Captain McStocker but, owing to the confusion of the time, he was lost sight of. Captain Mc Stocker sent a note to Wray Taylor recommending Kamakau very highly. He is the only native be longing to Squad 5. Bruce Cartwright recommended that in the choice of line officers for the Citizens' Guard under the new organization, Dr. C. B. Wood's name be put forward promin ently for the office of lieutenant. The doctor has been a hard worker from the time the squad was start ed, and it was he who prevented its consolidation with another equad. Dt. Wood in replying to the kind remarks of Bruce Cartwright spoke very highly of the efficient services of Wray Taylor, giving him the credit of being one of the most assiduous workers in the squad. It was the opinion of the mem bers that some kind of cap3 for officers and privates should be pro cured as soon as possible. The case of a member of the Citizens' Guard being shot at by another of the Bame organization because the latter was unable to distinguish him from a rebel was cited. L. D. McKisick, of San Francis co, has been appointed by Attorney-General Olney as special coun sel for the United States Govern ment against the Leland Stanford estate.

Saturday was a lively day along Waikiki beach and at Long Branch especially, over 200 people being present there during the day, all of whom enjoyed a dip in the briny at that popular resort. Jim Sher wood says if the Government would grant him a license to sell beer and light wines he would make a great many improvements at his place. The present frame structure would be torn down and replaced with a commodious two- story building with all modern ap pliances and in keeping with the patronage bestowed, he has in j ii i . view many aesirauio cuanges u ne could secure a license, and would erect and operate a first-class bath ing resort something long needed at Waikiki. Keading-rooms, gym nasium, billiard and pool tables, board and lodging accommoda tions and other necessary requisites would be provided, besides a gen eral beautifying of the grounds at Lone Branch. Mr. Sherwood is enthusiastic over the subject of these improvements, and says if he could carry out his designs the people of Honolulu would marvel at the changes and, conveniences he thinks are" necessary to the comfort of the public. Orders have been sent by Mr. Sherwood to Mexico for a large number of cedar shrubs that thrive along the Mexican coast. These will be planted along the beach in front of Long Branch, and will add considerably to the beauty of the place. These shrubs grow in the sand and are used in Mexico to a great extent for the purpose of re claiming ground. Ihey contain hundreds of long, tough roots, which quickly spread out and are kept in a growing state by salt water. Sand brought in by the waves is washed on to the shrubs and held there by the roots, which soon forms a bulwark for the small, scrubby trees. These shrubs will be the only ones of the kind ever introduced into the Islands, and if they prove a success at Long Branch, other residents along the beach will likely import numbers of them for similar purposes. THE MISSING- CYCLIST. The Expedition in . Search of Frank Lenz Abandoned. Boston. Jan. 24th. After all that has been said 'and done rela tive to the trip of Robert Bruce in search of Jb rank Lenz, the "round- the-world" cyclist," who is reputed to be lost, it how turns out that the tnp will be abandoned. This is no fault whatever of Bruce, who was anxious to search for his lost friend, but rather through the ex cuses of the parties making the contract with him, who did not consider they would be justified in sending the young and venture some fellow on this trip against the wishes of his family. It is well to remind business men that they do not have to send abroad any more for rubber stamps. The Gazette Company make them to order.
