Gtkf ProbaMj out r the ira--. Mrs. Dexter telephoned thin office lat night that it i Ruby's wish that hi.- friends who are holding back votes for him shall ca.-t them for King. Thi may lie accepted a lexter"s withdrawal from the race. This is unfortunate because it will natur ally reduce the interest in both contest and race, for every one concedes the young man to be one of the quickest facers on the track. Another unfortunate circumstance is the illness of Giles, a very speedy racer and one who, had he gone into the race, would have kept the other two riders pumping to cross the line ahead of him. It is not definitely decided that he will not compete for the trophy, but his ill ness is of a character that is pretty Mire to prevent his riding. Angus is well and fit to ride the race of his life, and will do it if his friends will come to the front with votes. The daily issue of the Aiivkktiskk is 1700; find the number of davs the contest has been running and multiply the 1700 papers by it and you will know the number of votes printed; deduct from it the number cast 5212 and you will have, approxi mately, the number of votes that are being held back. It is said that Sylvester has 2500 to drop in Friday night, but this is only a case of M it is said," for Sylvester will not say aye or nay to the question. There is a strong proba bility, however, that he will be one of the three graces next Satur day, and if he is he stands a good chance of winning. He went over the course on Saturday last and made the ten miles in twenty eiirht minutes. Ruby Dexter did the distance in twenty-seven and had King riding so close behind him that you could not pass your hand lietween the tires of the two wheels. Angus, who may possibly be the third man, can lower that time a little more than three min utes in a spurt. What the other boys can do in a race for a trophy will le learned next Saturday.

Captain Vaughan, of the British bark Sokoto. has a way of dealing with his men which is a revelation to tin- old-time "bncko mates," but the reports are that it works like a eharni. When in port lie feeds them on watermelons, peach es, and other fruit when in season, and it is safe to say that provender of that sort was never seen going into a forecastle before. At sea he has no such thing as an allow ance, every sailor on the bark being privileged to eat all he wants to and can hold. The men have fresh bread every day. all the "hard taek" they want, canned meats, potatoes, vegetables and fruit. Strange as it may seem, the ost is less than that of any other vssl of tin same line. He Rides this, the men work more cheerfully, keep the bark looking lik" a parlor, ami never want to leave the employ. Captain .Vaug han is breaking down the estab lished custom, but his owners are satisfied, as In is saving money for the firm. Exchange. AT GAZETTE OFFICE. Elisabeth WuikuLitii Touches Rev. Mii-kint -li for Five od Was Amend Y 'iti.iv. Early last Saturday evening a tall native girl called at the home of Rev. Alexander Mackintosh and told him of the death at Ewa of Lelia, the widow of Luke McShane, whom she represented as her Bis ter. She -aid it was very neces sary that a coffin be purchased immediately. She had succeeded in raising within $4 of the requisite amount and asked Mr. Mackintosh if he would not favor her with the amount, knowing all the while that the gentleman had charge of certain money left by the late Luke Mc Shane. Mr. Mackintosh handed the girl $5, asking her at the same time how she intended getting the coffin to Ewa. This she accounted for satisfactorily. After other ques tions regarding the children had been answered the girl left. Between 1- and 1 o'clock on Sun day Mr. Mackintosh was called to the telephone and received the fol lowing message: "This is Charley McShane : we have just buried mother : Aunt arrived here last night at 10 o'clock, wet and cold: coffin arrived in good condition and everything went along smooth ly." Mr. Mackintosh said he would be down on the 1 1 a.m. train Mon day. There being no train at that time he telephoned to the deputy sheriff at Ewa regarding his mis take. The wife answered the tele phone and upon being questioned said that Mrs. McShane was not dead, but very much better. Mr. Mackintosh commuicated the matter to the deputy marshal and the case was put into Detective Kapaa's hands between 4 and 5 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. As the detective was casting about for something to begin on an Ewa offi cer by the name of Phillip came into the police station in charge of a Chinese prisoner. Upon being questioned he said he knew of no female relative of Lilia's living in the vicinity, and had seen none such recently. He stated also that one of the McShane boys had visit ed the city on Saturday, but had returned Sunday morning. Kaapa gave orders to have the boy sent to town, which was done yesterday morning. Kaapa questioned him as to his whereabouts, but he could not sav he had seen a girl of the descrip tion furnished by the detective, it is Kaapa's opinion that the boy had conversations with various persons regarding his mother, and that the fact of her illness was communicated to the girl, who took advantage of the position to obtain money. Between 7 and 8 o'clock yester day morning Kaapa went to Mr. Mackintosh's house to obtain some points of information regarding the girl. That gentleman could not describe her looks as she was crying or apparently doing so and had her hands up to her face while she was in his presence. He said however that she was tall, of light complexion and spoke English fluently. She gave her name as Elizaleth. Kaapa knew of only one such girl who answered to that description. Upon leaving he said, "Mr. Mackintosh I will bring that girl to your house before night " Acting upon his suspicions he went to the King's boathouse and asked for Elizabeth Waikulani who soon made her appearance. Kaapa told her some work was waiting for her at the Deputy Marshal's office. Elizalieth be trayed herself by asking, in an agitated voice, " Have you a war rant for me ? She was taken to the Deputy Marshal's office, and from there to the Mackintosh home. When the clergyman saw the girl he was very much surprised, and said. M Why, that's the very woman.'' Mrs. Mackintosh also identified her. Elizabeth said it was her sister who had obtained the money ; that when the detec tive arrived at the boathouse she went out the other way. As it happens there is water on all sides, so Miss Elizabeth's tale fell rather flat, especially on the ears of the detective. After about a half-hour's conver sation in private with Mr. Mackin tosh the girl confessed the whole crime. Upon leing asked who put it into her head to do such a thing she merelv answered: "Someone told me to do it." and relapsed into silence. Mr. Mackintosh said he was satisfied regarding the matter. The girl had confessed all and he did not care to prosecute her. but pre ferred to let the matter drop. The work of Detective Kaapa in thus ferreting out a girl with so faint a clue is another proof of his shrewdness and capability of hold ing the position of trust he now does. -:- THE -:- DIRECT MOTION Steel Mill. Simple, Strong, Efficient. NdTK the WHEEL. The Above Cut shows one of Perkins Galvanized steel Mills, mounted on a Galvanized Steel lower. TIIK FOLLOWING POINTS OF ADVANTAGE: The sections of the wheel are made with two-inch steel bands for outer and inner rims, and the sails are riveted to these rims at their outer and inner ends. Please note that the outer rim is not ten or twelve inches insldeof outside ends of sails as is the case with other mills. Our plan of construction obviates the bending ;ind breaking of the ends of the sails, a serious objection to most steel mills. To make the sails still more rigid we connect each sail, near the middle of its length, with the sail on each side of it, by means of bolts. The sails are of best cold rolled steel, and are of such size as to give us more wind surface than is found in any other mill of which we have knowledge. The sails are set at just the right angle and curved to give the maximum power. Most careful attention is given to the construction of the THE rudder, making it firm, strong and thoroughly braced. The arms of the rudder are made of the best tire RUDDER. spring steel, which is better than angle or channel steel or gas pipe. Our truss rod brace will prev ent the rudder from warping or swaying around against the wheel. 1 he governing device has made the Perkins mill very p ailar, and has been acknowledged by competitors to be the best, and would doubtless be used by all of them but for the expense of making the change. By our adjustment of the nidder we place the wheel square to the wind while at work and edgewise to the wind when at rest. The same long and short steel hinges are used to raise the rudder when mill is out of gear or at rest. This plan has proved so satisfactory that eleven companies have adopted it since our patents expired. T 1 . A- 1 I 1 1 f i ne mum casnng ot mis mm nas Deen careruiiy de signed with a view to securing great strength and dura bility. In its construction only the best iron is employed. It is well adapted to its work. All the bearings of this mill are of liberal length and provided with our graphite bushings or self-lubricating box. These do not require oiling at all. In fact, we are now making mills with no oil holes in boxes. THE REGULATION. THE CASTING. THE BEARINGS. THE OTHER PARTS. THE SIZES. THE TOWER. All of the remaining parts of this mill are made with good proportions, of the very best materials, and in the most ap proved manner. We make this mill in two sizes, viz., with ten and twelve foot wind wheels. The tower is made with four corner posts of angle steel, bands and braces of channel steel, all parts being fitted by template so that thev tit exact, and all a workman needs to erect is a hammer, punch and wrench. The ladder is se curely made and ready to bolt on tower. It is safe and far preferable to the short steps on corner posts used on most towers. The anchor post is five feet long, of good heavy angle steel, and a base eight to thirteen inches in diameter, according to the size of mill and height of tower, is cast on the end of same, serving the double purpose of a support under foot of tower and an anchor. Just at the top of ground we fasten a piece of 4x4 inch oak in angle of corner posts, letting it run down about two feet, to give it more size in the ground. The arrangement of the bands ana braces is such that they support the corner posts at three different points, w here other towers have but a single support, thus making our tower three times as secure against buckling in extremely strong winds. This plan was originated by us and is fully protected by patents. Gould's Windmill Pomps of all sizes arc furnished with the above mills. We have Steel Windmills . 10 and 12 feet diameter, also Wood Mills of 10, 12. I t. 16 and U! feet diameter. YTe will furnish catalogues and descriptive matter to any one desiring information. E. O.
