WILL MARRY A KING.
Material for a South Sea Romance
in This True Story.
Of late years it has been common
enough for American girls of rich pa
rentage to marry princes, dukes, earls
and men of less pretentious title, but
until now none have been able to cap
ture the heart of royalty. The girl who
has accomplished this unparalleled feat
is not rich, neither has she aristocratic
connections. Her name is Ella Collins,
whose mother rents furnished rooms on
Fourth avenue, New York. Miss Col
lins is a comely young woman, of good
sound sense, the latter characteristic
being what chiefly attracted the man
whose wife she is about to become.
He is John F. Hobbs, once a citizen of
Lexington, S. C, but more recently
ouiunalea, or king, of the Ilikan Isl
ands, a group of the New Hebrides, in
the Southern Pacific. Hbbbs studied
law in his youth, but his health gave
out and he was ordered by physicians
to take a voyage in the Pacific ocean.
At Melbourne, Australia, he joined the
staff of a daily paper and went on an
exploring expedition in North Austra
lia. In 1890 he was sent on an expe
dition to the New Hebrides in a small
schooner. The vessel was wrecked, and
Hobbs, who had a life preserver, is be
lievel to be the only survivor. He was
picked up by native fishermen, who
toofk him to their king. His majesty
adopted the stranger.
This was in the .Ilikan Islands, the
nhabitants of which then expected an
invasion. When the enemy arrived
Hobbs persuaded the king to try an
ambush, a method of warfare entirely
unknown there. The plan was com
pletely successful, and the king appoint
ed the American "war chief forever."
About a year later the king died and
Hobbs succeeded him on the throne.
Ole Olson Thursday for Benefit
of Co. 1, N. G. II.
It generally happens that when a
good show is given half the town re
mains away, believing it.will be a poor
one. The performance at the drill shed
ast Saturday night was not an excep
tion, and to meet the demand of the
stay-at-homes the performance will be
repeated by Mr. Scott and the regular
cast on Thursday night for the benefit
of Company B, N. G. H.
Bob Scott will act the part of the
good hearted Swede in a way that will
win for him the good nature of the
audience. Mesdames Wilson, Lawrence
and Otterson and Messrs. Morris Bick-
erton, Ramsay and Storey will assist j
in the production. Seats are on sale at
the Hobron Drug Co.
For the information of those who did
not see the performance on Saturday
night, it may be said that the perform
ance is as free from the defects usually :
shown by amateurs as a 16 to 1 dollar
is free from gold.
In England and Wales 8,079 miles of
railway out of 9.044 miles of double
lines are worked on the block system.
In Scotland practically the whole of the
mileage is worked on that system.

The Australian Champions to
Arrive on Mariposa.
GAMES PLAYED IN UNITED STATES
A Man Who Can Bowl Both Ways Team
of Star Players Who Conquered Every
Thins But All England Eleven Can a
Game be Arranged for Honolulu? Etc.
Information is at hand to the effect
that the Australian cricket team which
has been adding to its laurels by de
feating the most celebrated teams of
England and America, will go through
here on the Mariposa on October 22.
The team consists of fifteen men, as
G. P. S. Trott, captain; George Grif
fen, Hugh Trumble, S. E. Gregory, H.
Graham, E. Jones, A. E. Johns, J. Dar
ling, C. Hill, H. Donnan, F. A. Tre
dale, J. J. Kelly, T. R. McKibbin, C. J.
Eady and H. Musgrove. The first five
were in the team which visited America.-
The team won 36 out of 39 games
played in England. Three games were
contested with the All-England, and of
these the Australians won one. They
played three games in Philadelphia and
won all, one with the Bayonne, New
Jersey, and one in Chicago, and they
added scalps to their girdle in both In
stances. Captain G. P. S. Trott remarked in
the East that he has in his team three
or four splendid bowlers who can adapt
themselves to any kind of wicket;-and
if the pitch is at all sticky he has a
"terror" in T. R. McKibbin, who in the
last matches in England achieved un
looked for success.
"McKibbin is about the only bowler
I know who can break the ball both
ways with accuracy," said Captain
Trott. "In Australia the wickets are so
hard and true that it is very difficult
to get any break on the balls, but on
some of the grounds in England Mc
Kibbin had so much spin on the ball
that it often broke right across the
wicket, and he had to pitch it so far
to the off that the batsmen could al
ways cover the stumps with their bod
ies." If the Mariposa remains in port dur
ing the day, efforts , will be made to
have the Australians play with a pick
ed team of the Honolulu eleven.
Meeting of Town Team and Elec
tion of Captain and Manager.
There was a large attendance of those
interested in foot ball last evening at
the Y. M. C. A. hall. After the meeting
was called to order, nominations for
captain were in order. Carlos Long
was unanimously elected, and Charles
Crane manager. It was decided that
the men would not play under the col
ors of the H. A. A. C, but would be
known as the "Town Team." About
twenty-five men have signified their
ntention to play, many of whom have
aeen on the gridiron in the States.
The boys will commence at once to
practice and go into active training.
They expect to obtain a coach in town,
as the Regiment and Punahous al
ready have one. A. L. Morris, who
played in the Tacomas, and George H.
Robinson, who played on the Stam
fords, have been suggested. It is the
idea to have a series of games between
the different clubs, and on Thanksgiv
ing Day the final game will be played.
The managers of the clubs will soon
meet to arrange a schedule of games.
The town team will have to do some
good work if they want to win from
Highest of aii ia Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
the Punahous and the Regiment. The
first practice game will probably take
place tomorrow afternoon.
After some discussion on the general
subject of, foot ball the meeting adjourned.
Arrangements Completed and the
Stars Will Go on Friday.
Arrangements are about completed
for the Star base ball team to go to
Maul on Friday to play the All-Maul
nine. Permission for the holiday was
asked the employers of members of the
Stars yesterday, and in every instanco
it was promptly granted.
The team as made up is: II. Wilder,
L. Hart, C. Willis, Tom Pryce Percy
Lishman, Willie Wilder, Sam Woods,
J. O. Carter Jr., Donald Ross, C. Con
radt and Duke McNicolI. Of these ten
are sure to go. The Wilder Steamship
Company has kindly made special rates
for the players and they will leave by
the Kinau Friday morning. The early
part of Saturday will be spent in eight
seeing, and the atfernoon will be de
voted to the, ball game. Morris Keo
kahalole will probably accompany the
team as umpire.
J. O. Carter Jr. will manage the
team and probably play In the game.
He is thoroughly acquainted with all
the lava cracks in the vicinity and will
add to his duties as manager the re
sponsibilities of guardian to the boys
while they are away.
The acceptance to the challenge will
go forward by the Hall today.
THE BLACK RLIGIIT.
A Correspondent (Jives and Asks
MR. EDITOR: I observe in the col
umns of an evening paper here an ar-.;
tide describing a blight on coffee trees
In North Kona. Permit me to ask in
your columns if Professor Koebele's
attention has been called to the fact,
that on some plantations the primaries
have been apparently sealed at the tips
with what appears to be a greenish
wax, the effect of which was, I have
been assured by a planter, to stay the
further straight outward growth of
the primaries on trees two to three
The remedy taken by the planter
quoted is to remove this wax with the
point of a knife when detected, thereby
securing the regular extension of the
growth. I mention this for the pur
pose ,of drawing from others any ex
ternal causes which their observation
and practical study of the coffee plant
may lead them to consider as likely to
account for what I would call "black
blight," and which to external obser
vation appears first to attack the end
of the berry-laden primary.
This black blight is to be seen at
present in North as well as South Ko
na. Such observations might well,
through your columns, be given every
publicity, drawing forth the planters'
ideas of cause and effect, and if doing
nothing more than putting scientific
Investigation on probable 'good trails
for fixing the enemies of coffee plant
life, a good purpose will have been
I would like to encroach upon your
space to a further extent, and would
like the following query to be answered
by anyone qualified to do so:
Will greater evaporation from the
soil take place when uncovered by a-a
than when covered by it? In other
words, would the porous a-a assist in
the retention of the moisture within
the soil beneath it, or otherwise?
Would the piling of the a-a close up
to and around the coffee trees be an
advantage or otherwise to the trees
growth? How and wherefore would
thev be affected? X. Y. Z.
There is in this office a collection
of coffee berries picked from a tree af
fected by the black blight spoken of.
They are stunted in growth, almost
black in color, and the kernal shriveled
and soft. The branch containing the
berries was black and resembled a
burnt twig. ED.
