THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISES: HONOLULU, APRIL. 15, 1895.
2 WILL NOT ACCEPT PARDON Ashford Refuses Respite on Condi tions Named. Oucument Head Saturday Oulte Trobable He May Decide to Go. Forenoon. Finally V. . Ashtord has refused, to ac cept the conditional pardon grant ed him by the Government. De- nutv Marshal Brown went to the s. tf Queen's Hospital Saturday fore noon and delivered the pardon to Mr. Ashford. Mr. Ashford without much de liberation refused to accept his lib erty on the conditions named, viz., that he leave the country never to return. A policeman was there upon placed on guard outside his door and ud to the present the lawyer remains practically a vol untary prisoner of the Govern ment. While Mr. Ashford is quite determined in his refusal, it is within the range of a probability that he will change his mind and leave on the earliest steamer his condition will permit. SUED FOR SLANDER. C. A. Spreokels Brings Action Against His Father. Suit has been commenced in San Francisco by C. A. Spreckels against Claus Spreckels for slander. The plaintiff as vice-president and gen eral manager of the Sugar Refining Company, sues his father as the larg est stockholder in the concern. The cause of action is an alleged statement made on March 2d, by Claus Spreckels in the presence of one Johnson, the statement purport ing to reflect upon the plaintiff This alleged statement was divided into four causes of action, the words complained of being: "I gave that boy $25,000 a year in Philadelphia and theu he drew ont $250,000 of my money. I will tell the whole story one of these days, then the public will see these sons in their true light." Referring to the son's suit against the Oceanic Steamship Company, the father is charged with saying: "This is a piece of blackmailing, that is what it is. He and his young est brother are trying to beat me out of $2,000,000." Another "cause of action" was the reported statement by the defendant that the plaintiff would soon be a baLkrupt, and another that he had "wasted money." The estimated on the various causes of damages action aggregates over $,2000,000, and the damages sued for are $300 and costs. tde ox-zvx.ufLii.LiS ROW Rudolph Spreckels, the youngest son of Claus Spreckels, has sprung the latest sensation in the family al tercation. In the course of the trial in nis in junction suit against the Nevada Bank, to prevent a transfer of the certificates of stock in the Paabau plantation, Rudolph Spreckels' attor ney hauded in an affidavit full of ugly charges against his father Rudolph has signed the document ana duly acKnowiecigea it Detore a notary. Its purport in to charge Claus Spreckels with endeavoring to injure the credit of his two younger sons to prevent them from paying the in debtedness of C. A. Spreckels to hi. father. In the event of the obliga tion not. being met. certain securities in the Nevada Bank, turned over to guarantee payment, would become the property of Claus Spreckels. AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP. Evasive Reply of Secretary Gresh azn to Hon. P. C. Jones. Minister Willis has handed Hon. P. C. Jone3 the appended commu nication from Secretary Gresham in reply to a request asking for a ruling on the status of his Ameri can citizenship and the liability of Mr. Jones to payment of the in come tax : Department of 8tate, Washington, March 21, 1895. j Albert 8. Willis, Esq , Honolulu. Sir: Your No. 89 of the 231 ultimo has been received. It communicates the inquiry of Mr. Peter C. Jones, ap parently a native of the United States, but resident in the Hawaiian Islands for thirty seven years past, whether, under the circumstances stated by him in his note, of which you forward copy, he is liable to pay income tax under the Act of Congress of August 28, 1994, as a citizen of the United States. The case as stated raises no interna tional question as between this Gov ernment and that of Hawaii, and an opinion of the Secretary of State on the point presented could bind neither Mr. Jones nor the Secretary of the Treasury, who is charged with the execation of the provision in question. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, VV. Q. Gresham. The annual meeting of the Sec ond Congregation of St. Andrew' Cathedral will take place this (Easter Monday) evening in the school room, at half-past 7 o'clock, for the election of the officers for the ensuing year, and for the trans action of other important business. A full attendance of the male mem bers is requested. THE TOUCH !N PIANO PLAYING. A Flexible Iland ami an Ear For Tone Color Necessary For Best Results. There are two things necessary to those who would cultivate a good touch: One is a hand favorable; the other an ear delicate enough to detect the varia tions of tone color. Given a stiff hand no possible will or pains taken by the student will cultivate a good touch. The playing of those unfortunate in this re spect will always remain harsh and un sympathetic, but given a flexible hand and an ear for tone color, and there is no goal to which the student cannot ar rive with hard work. Nor does It mat ter, once flexibility is assured, what the shane of the hand is, according to a writer in The Musical Courier, who de scribes Chonin's hands as thin and small with tapering fingers, and Rubin stein's as coarse, with fingers long and thick. He says: Judging therefore from Chopin's hand and Rubinstein's, it would seem as if the shape or formation of the hand mat ters little. The long, thin hand will, for instance, find lightninglike arpeggii a bagatelle, and the other, like Rubin stein's and Tausig's, with a natural slope from the third to the fifth fingers, will do startling work in octaves. But for touch flexibility is the chief test, for it is in the stroke of the finger, its lightness or strength, and every grada tion of the same, that the secret lies. Onco the key is down, no earthly power can produce any effect by the most per fect tremolo ever worked by the finger on the ivory. Once down, the only grad ation in tone possible is by the use of the pedals. As regards a natural touch, it will be most generally found that it is really another name for flexibility of finger. To the student touch is the last and hardest stumbling block in the difficult Parnassus he has set himself to climb. From a bad piano the majority of piano students will never draw forth tones that can satisfy, but in the modern grands of trustworthy makers they will find with study a mine of tono poetry that is limitless. "Taking a Plain Omelet. Beat 2 eggs until well broken, add a pinch of salt and a tablespoonful of sweet milk. Have your pan perfectly smooth and clean. Now put a spoonful of butter in the pan, and when it is as hot as it can bo without scorching the butter pour the egg mixture in; keep slipping a thin broad bladed knife under it and raising it up to prevent burning. As soon as the under side is brown and the top is "set" fold it together, shake the spider or pan so as to entirely free it, carefully slide it on to a hot platter and serve immediately. Tho guests may wait two minutes for an omelet, but an omelet cannot wait one minute for a guest. Remnants of Vegetables. Remnants of vegetables are too oft9n thrown away. There is seldom a bit too small to be of further use. Several kinds can be united in a salad or a hash. Ac cording to Good Housekeeping, a cupful of tomato, cauliflower or green peas, combined with milk or stock, will give a good soup. Rice or other cereals, sweet or white potato or squash may be v uiHtJil lulu Uicohfast mnffins, making a pleasant variety ana reducing tne quantity of flour required. Mashed veg etables like potatoes, turnips or par snips can bo made into croquettes, or with less labor into little balls to be browned in tho oven. Popular Crepons. Crepons are if possible more in de mand than ever. Theso possess two ad vantages which women will hesitate to discard. Crepon wears much better than silk in the first place, and, secondly, it is equally suitable for morning, after noon and evening wear when full dress is not required. Tho new crepons are so varied in de sign and beautiful in coloring that they baffle description. Thero aro chino effects in flowers of natural colors and oriental patterns, which are very soft, in prettily blended AFTERNOON COSTUME IN CEEPON. tints. Tiny flowered stripes are seen in light grounds, and crepons, with the wide uneven marking, are spotted in contrasting colors with great effect. An other charming variety seems to have an upper surface quite distinct and very thin, and yet it is all woven together. Crepons bid fair to take the place of foulards, so long and serviceably worn. Very effective and stylish is the after noon costume in gray spotted crepon cloth, trimmed with collar, belt and cluster of loops and ends in velvet. The full bodice is cut out to describe an all over foliage pattern, through tho aper tures of which peep out the lining of daf fodil yellow satin. Cuffs are made to match. The toque is in velvet, set off with a feather aigret. Yon can bnv tLe la-st dates of J. A.
