For the first time in years,
perhaps in the history of the
country, five foreign mer-
chant steamship:- have been
in port at one thne and to
'accommodate these five
steamers there were but two
wharves. Evidently com

there is no reason why the
demand for merchandise o:

ducts of other countries must
be brought in ships.
We find ir the best means,
as the trans-Pacinc train ser
vice is irregular. We get a
lot of freight by these steam
ers, valuable goods sold at
prices which defy compe
tition. Just now we want
to call your attention to Ser

We have Serges in the

Two Thousand Mourning Frienls Pecer
The remains of the late Joseph Na
wahi arrived on the Australia yester
day and wire met by nearly two thou
sand mourning friends. The remains
were consigned to. H. H. Williams, and
on a rival were placed in his charge. 1
The societies to which Mr. Nawahi be
longed not having been advised of thi
instructed E. A. Williams to tak
charge of the casket, but when he
learned of the actions of the friends of
the deceased in California he With
drew. About eight o'clock the corpse Was
removed in a hearse drawn by four
horses to thf- undertaking- parlors of
H. H. Williams and later taken to the
Nawahi residence. Palama.
During the afternoon hundreds of
visitors called on the Ml . Nawahi and
paid their respects, and at night the
avenues leading to the house were
lighted with torches as a mark of re
spect to the deceased. The grounds
were filled with peopie throughout the
night. The room in which the remains
were lying in state was a mass of cut
flowers in different beautiful designs,
two large pillows made of white flow
ers being especially noticable. One
had upon it wrought in flowers tin
name of the deceased and thother
On either side of the casket four
kahili bearers were placed and they
kept watch during the night while a
number of boys in whom Mr. Nawahi
was much interested during life sang
Hawaiian dirges alternately with mu
sic rendered by the Kawaihau Club.
The funeral will take place from the
residence at 12:30 p. m. today, services
being conducted by Rev. E. S. Timoteo.
Minister Cooper has tendered the ser
vices of the Hawaiian band and the
hearse containing the remains will be
drawn by members of the Aloha Aina
society. E. A. Williams will conduct
the funeral, arrangements having heen
made with him yesterday afternon.

Alexander Young and wife are home
again after a pleasant vacation spent
in California. Mr. Young is said to
have dilated so much upon the beauties
of Honolulu that there was no surprise
waiting the tourists on their arrival.
Hon. Cecil Brown and wife and Miss
Dickson returned . esterday after a i
two months' visit to San Francisco.
Mr. Brown's trip was a combination of j
pleasure and business, he having gone j
away mainly to look after Mr. Camp
bell's interests in the prosecution of
Winthrop. While absent he had an j
opportunity of ascertaining just how j
unlike him a San Francisco newspaper j
artist can get a sketch. Mrs. James j

Among the welcome returning resi
dents by the steamer yesterday were
Judge Widemann and family who have i
been making a rather extended visit to
the coast. The activity of the Judge ,
while on the steamer was something of
a surprise to the tourists.
Robert Catton's visit abroad was for
the purpose of meeting his wife and
children who have been visiting in
Scotland, their old home for nearly
two years. Like everyone else who
leaves here for a visit, or with the in
tention of remaining away permanent
ly, they are glad to get back.
L. B. Kerr came off the steamer with
a smile and a pocket full of invoices
of new goods. While away Mr. Kerr
devoted nearly all of his time to busi
ness and little to pleasure.

tion some time about ten o'clock Mon

says this is the worst lot of immigrants
he has had to handle since he has been
in the service. They have required
