Vocal solos added greatly to the evening's enjoyment. Tee cream and cake were served. H. C. Austin goes to Honolulu to morrow. G. K. Wilder returned from Kau this week in company with Chester Doyle of Honolulu. Mrs. Wilder is confined to her home with a severe attack of tonsi litis. W. 8. Barnes and Miss Barnes leave for Honolulu on the Kinau. They expect to visit a short time in Hono lulu before leaving for their Eastern home. Mrs. Lewis of Oakland, Cal., is sojourning with her father and sister, the Drs. Wetmore. J, R. Wilson has moved into the new building jusfc completed for his occupancy. The new stables are large, commodious and well fitted up. The building across the way, which has been temporarily occupied by Mr. Wilson as an office, carriage room, etc., is being remodeled for use as a restaurant. A new stock company has been in corporated for the purpose of engaging in the sale of dairy products, milch cows, etc. The company is styled The California Stock and Dairy Co. They have leased a large tract on Volcano street, near Waiakea, where they have erected the necessary buildings, etc. The stock and personal property of John A. Spear, who committed suicide some months ago, was dis posed of at public auction this week. The Levi G. Burgess, Youngrew master, left this port on the 21st iust , carrying 2226 tons of sugar for San Francisco, the largest shipment ever made on any one vessel. The brig Lurline took her departure on the 31st ult. with 10,000 bags of sugar. She carried three passengers Mrs. Johnson and two native boys who have been attending the Hilo boarding-school. Both boys have been offered excellent homes near San Jose, Cal., and go hence with Mrs. Johnson, who has been their teacher for several months past. The bark Annie Johnson leaves next Thursday morning with a full cargo of sugar and eight passengers. The latest addition to the sugar en terprise of the Republic was experi mented last Saturday the 6th inst. The Hilo Portuguese Sugar Mill Com pany was inaugurated last November with a capital stocK oi ?3u,uuu. a mill site was purchased in the heart of the town, known as Kukuau 2d and work commenced on the build ings,etc., in December.1894. The whole is enclosed in one large building form ing a T. The greater portion of the machinery was formerly part of the Waikapu Mill, aud portion was ob tained from the Honolulu Iron Works. Although not very large it is sufficient for the requirements of the compauy. Over 500 people were present at the experimental steaming up on Satur day last. Steam was put on by slow degrees from 12 m. to 3:30 p. m. when sixty four pounds was reached, and the whole enterprise set moving on its mission of trade and commerce. A long whittle was blow n at 4 p. m. and no doubt it is the herald of Portuguese regeneration, and those that heard it should hearken and think that the Portuguese colony of Hawaii is in the march of progress and will in time seek recognition from its more world ly fortunate neighbor colonies. So Hilo at last will taste Portuguese sugar. NEWS OP KOHALA. Thurston Affair Causes Indigna tion Bad Weather Abating. SPECIAL TO THE" ADVERTISER. iCon ala, (Hawaii), April S. The news from Washington has formed the main topic of conversation for the past few days. A good deal of indig nation is felt at what seems a case of petty persecution on the part of offi cials of a great and powerful nation towards the representative of a weaker power. Some citizens here consider the best rebuke on Hawaii's part would be to delay the appointment of any representative to Washington during the next two years, just letting the matter remain as it is. The stormy weather has moderated somewhat, though on the hills it is very cold, and still rains almost every day. The cane district is not getting enough rait. The fevers and other disorders of the public health are less prevalent. A vessel loaded wiih sugar cleared during the week for Sau Francisco, from Honoipo, and the J. G. North is up and loading at the same port. The Allen A has also left Mahukona with euitar for San Francisco The residents of Kohala acknow ledge their obligation to all concerned for the receipt of "foreigu mail which was brought in by Wilder's steamer Hawaii on Friday. The public schools are getting ready for tbeir quarterly public exhibitions previous to the Laster holidays. Palm Sunday was observed in all the churches by appropriate exercises. Dr. Moore, the dentist, is located in Kohala for a week or two. Mr. Wichman is expected here soon on a professional trip as occulist. A lame number of passengers came to Kohala by the last trip of the Kinau, including Misses Holmes and Woodehouse, end Messrs. J Ren ton, G. F. Ren ton, P Woods, L. Aren, Dr. Moore, A. H. Fulleton, C. H. Fairer, H Von Tempsky and ethers. The mills are all grinding, and the crop is more than half taken off. A little planting has already been done and general piautiug will soon begin. Tax Board Meeting. The Board of Equalization of Taxes will open its first session of the year this morning at 10:30, in the Judiciary Building. The Act ing Minister of Finance will pre side. Assessors C. H. Dickey, Jona than Shaw, H. C. Austin and J. K. Farley compose the board. Routine business will be trans acted at today' meeting, followed by a discussion of the valuation of sugar lands. The board expects to be in pession for several weeks. TEMPTATIONS TtO DRINKING. TR. CUTLERS remarks continued. In discussing; the temptations to drinking we must not confine it to the venders of intoxicants in bar rooms and saloons who deal it out by the dram. The custom of "treating is fraught with enormous evils. It is said to be increasingly prevalent among business men who wish to win customers, or to compliment a customer after a bargain. All this is playing with fire. I once labored hard to reform an inebriate in my congregation. After several relapses he became perfectly sober, and gave erood hoDe of Dermanent reform. His wife said to me: falls again, it will "If my husband kill me!" For months all went well, and the dark home became filled with sunshine Uoe day the reformed man met a business friend who invited him to go and lunch with him. Liquor was furnished, and the entertainer press ed the reformed inebriated to "take a glass with him." The unhappy man swallowed one glass, and it un chained the demon in a moment! The old habit came back with re doubled power, and the poor slave of the bottle never got qpon his feet aerain. Who was the greater sinner in that wretched transaction? It 13 time that all people who claim to have a Christian conscience faced that declaration of God's Book that "it is good neither to drink wine or anything whereby thy brother etumbleth." This means that no one has a moral right to do anything the influence of which may work mischief to his neighbor. I have a legal right to attend a theater and witness a salacious play ; but I have no moral right to go, not merely because I may soil my own soul, but because I am giving my money and the sane tion of my presence to what is a slaughter house of all purity. On the same DrinciDle not merely of self-preservation, but of its influence on other people I have no right, as a Christian, to abet the drinking usages If a glass of wine on my table will entrap some one into an evil habit, then I am thoughtlessly setting a trap for his life. I am his tempter. I give the drink customs my sanction, and to him the direct inducement to partake of that glass, in which the serpent may be coiled. If the contents of my decanter make my "brother stumble," he stumbles over me. If he goes from my table and commits some folly or some out rage, I, too, am to a certain extent guilty; for I have a partnership in every wrong he may commit, and every wound be may inflict on the hearts of his loved ones while under the spell of my 'Madeira" or "Bour bon." I gave him the incentive to do what otherwise he might have left undone. Nor is it only in direct ly offering an intoxicant, but in affording the example of drinking that I may be a tempter. None of us livetb. unto himself alone; our influ ence is as inseparable from us as is our shadow on a sunshiny day. "Why don't you take a glass of wine with me?" said a distinguished clergyman at a public table to a gen tleman who sat beside him. The quiet answer was, "On account of my example." The minister blushed, and concluded that he had better heed Paul's precept that a bishop ought not to be given to wine. W. C T. U.
