Crncitmr Rec ord Brekr-Kicuri!oB Party to Mr. JCjcroft'a Coffee Pnttlon. IIlLO (Hawaii;, Feb. 13. The past week of moonlight has enticed many a riding and driving party to canter or spin along the beautiful Volcano road. Young folks In couples or quartettes formed numerous riding parties dur ing the favorable era. The KInau, on its second trip to Puna, took an excursion party of twelve men. They left Hilo at 6 on Sunday morning, and at 10 they dis embarked at Poholkl, greatly exhilar ated by the soft sea air. After a tramp over the district, and a thor ough inspection of Mr. .Robert By croft's splendid coffee plantation, they repaired to the hospitable home of the By crofts, where Mrs. Ry croft served the; party with a most sumptuous lunch. It was after 2 o'clock when an bands again boarded the KInau, and at 6;30 p. m. all were safely landed In Hilo. feeling greatly repaid for the irln thev had taken. Those who formed the party were Messrs. C. E, Richardson, A. lougher, Frank Win ter. J. Vanatta. A. M. Wilson, Otto Roae, George Weight, Ed. Weight, John Mills, Mr. Valentine and Peter Gibb. As a part of her cargo the KI nau brought up twenty bags of coflee from Mr. Rycroft's place. On Thursday evening, the 7th, the Hilo Social Club held its bi-weekly meeting at Kaenelhl, at the seaside home of Messrs. F. S. Lyman and C. E. Richardson. The evening passed pleasantly with social chat and sing ing, and, after an indulgance in re freshing Kona coffee with accompany ing edibles, all returned to town. . Tuesday evening the charming resi dence of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Scott at Wainaku was the scene of an exceed ingly pleasant card party. At the call of the bell twenty-four players sat down to the enjoyment of a series of nine games of Napoleon. Through out the evening the playing was de cidedly animated and interesting, and when the last game was finished and the announcementof prizes was made, it was found that Mrs. W. A. Hardy and Mr. W. W. Good ale had won the first prize and Mrs. LeBIond and Mr. Frank Winter had acquitted them selves so well as to be accorded the booby prizes. After the merry party had been' served with eatables and drinkables, all joined in lively conver sation for a short time belore leaving the scene of so many pleasant hours. To Spreckels Bros, belongs the credit for projecting plans for the building of the first srood business block in Hilo. The store formerly occupied by Mr. Li. Turner has been torn down, and a new block will soon be erected, which would do credit to any place. Adjoining this building will be the new stables which have been leased to Mr. J. R. Wilson. The foundation for this building, which is to be 150 by 80 feet, has been laid and work is pro gressing upon the framework. Mr. Vanatta has the builder's contract. One day last week, while a native named Kuhaupio was engaged in re pairing the roof of a bul;ding on Front street, occupied by the Japanese Hotel, he carelessly stepped upon a piece of corrugated iron which was not fas tened to the roof. The roof being a rather steep one, the result was that he, together with the Iron, were pre cipitated to the ground below, a dis tance of thirty feet. Kuhaupio was badly injured about the head and body, and Is still confined to his home. A petition, addressed to the Attorney-General at Honolulu, is being cir culated, asking that Judge E. W.

About the elevated platiorm. upon which were seated the musicians. were prominently displayed three Ha waiian flags. Three judges, Mr?.

KOHALA'S SUBSCRIPTION. Friends cf the Late C. L. Carter Swell the Memorial Fund. A letter was brougbt from Ko- hala yesterday containing the vol- untary subscriptions of the people from that district to the Carter memorial. A correspondent writes : "The subscriptions sent down for the Carter memorial, are all modest in amount, but they indicate suffici ently the feeling with which citizens view the subject. Every man through out these islands must realize that the prompt and patriotic action of the citizen soldiers of Honolulu saved the country districts untold misfortune, and the feeling seems universal that every one should have a share in the only testimonial of esteem that can now be given to the brave man who responded to first call of dutv, and gave his life in the defense of tke Re public, the protection of life and prop erty, and the common interests of humanity. "It is hoped that the press will keep this question persistently before the people, till a noble monument is an assured fact."
