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
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.
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
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
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.

Long Branch to be Beautified and
Improvements Contemplated.
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

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 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.
