TWO BIG CHEATS Pair of Clever Rascals Here On the Aorangi. Had Swindled Colonial Capitalists. Captured Several Thousand Pounds-Had a Secret L'ght. The two perpetrators of the greatest swindle that has been inflicted on the Colonials in many years were probably passengers by the S. S. Aorahgi, the C. and A. boat, that was here a few days ago, with a lot of Klondikers and oth ers. Ihese men, Lee and .Elliott, were traced to the Aorangi by the Austra lian detectives. One of the men is an American and the other an Englishman. They made away with 4,000 sterling of the money of Sydney capitalists. The story of the affair is that after the two men had settled themselves in rooms, they caus ed it to be known that they had dis covered a new process by which they could revolutionize the lighting of (the world. This startling proposal relied for its accomplishment upon the use of 1 a beautifully simple and alluringly in expensive chemical, assisted by the consumption of amospheric gases. For the production of the new and attractive agent, the men placed in ithe two rooms a gas engine, and also fixed up various lights, and the place was then thrown open to the inspection of anyone who felt an interest in the matter. A num ber of persons came, inspected, and de parted filled with wonder and visions of a vast and astounding possibility. Next the two discoverers made the pathetic but business-like announcement that they were penniless men, adding their willingness to share their discovery and the glorious profits which appeared visible, with anyone who would step forward and assist in getting the won derful invention patented all over the wrorld. To do this it was calculated that the formation of a syndicate with a monetary backbone of 16,000 would be necessary. So great was the faith which rthe thing engendered, that the preliminaries were soon arranged, and the shares were rushed by the public. .They are said to ihave been .set at 10 each in the first instance, and rapidly rose till tbey exchanged (hands at as high a figure as 75 per share. Soon the exposure came. After Lee and Elliott were out of the way with the money, it wag learned they had been secretly using common gasoline. NEW STAMP ISSUE. One Cent Green Adopted By In ternational Postal Congress. The latest issue of the one cent Am erican postage stamp has been printed in green, and they are now coming in to use. The Postal Union Convention, at its session in Washington last year; passed a vote recommending all postal administrations to lhave the stamps of each country, of like denomination, printed in uniform color, beginning with the one cent, which was voted to be in green. The advantage of this uni formity will be that the color, as' well as the figures of the stamp will enable all buying, using or cancelling them to distinguish them more readily, and avoid mistakes that have heretofore often been made. The postal union is becoming, each year, more and more, a great international cooperative system, in which each member or country seeks to aid not only its own business but also the business of every other mem ber of the union. The printing of the Hawaiian one cent stamp in green ( now printed in yellow) will be an improve ment, as the shade of yellow used has not been much, liked. This may neces sitate a change in the next issue of the 10 cent green stamp. Reorganization. Marshal Brown and Capt. F. B. Mc Stocker have about completed reorgani zation of the Citizens' Guard here and the Mounted Reserve. The C. G. com panies have been divided up so that the membership of each is under 50 instead of from 100 to 125, as formerly. This is considered by the head officials and by the company or line officers, a great improvement in the direction of per fect efficiency. There are now two com panies instead of one of the. Mounted Reserve. The original company re mains practically intact. The new com pany has its membership Ewa of Nuu anu stream. In Open Court. The American League's open meet ing committee has arranged an attrac tive program for this evening. The principal questions to receive attention will be the Income Tax Act now in the House at the Executive Building, and the general revenue license act that is up in the Legislature for amendment. Mr. Robertson will speak in favor of the Income Tax and Mr. Loebenstein will be against it. Addresses will be made by other public men and well known speakers. PACIFIC TENNIS CLUB. Regular Annual .Meeting and Elec tion of Officers. The regular annual meeting of the Pacific Tennis Club was held in the club house of that organization yester day afternoon. Fourteen members of the club were present, this being all who are in the city at the present time. Vice-president Adams, in the absence of President Dillingham, called the meeting to order. The report of the president was read by the vice-president and then came the reports of the secretary and treasurer, as well as that of the chairman of the board of trustees and the superintend' ent of the club. All these were accept ed and filed. The result of the election of officers to serve during the ensuing year, was as follows: G. R. Carter, president; S. G. Wilder, vice-president, G. P. Wilder, secretary and treasurer; C. Cooke, su perintendent. The old board of trus tees was reelected. G. P. Wilder gave notice of his in tention to introduce an amendment to the Constitution, to the effect that the offices of secretary and treasurer be in the hands of two men. This matter will come up in the next meeting. The three, delegates to (the Tennis Association were given instructions that they should try to effect a post ponement in the date of the beginning of the tournament, from the' first week in May to the first week in June. There had been complaints on the part of var ious of the tennis players of the city, that they had been unable to practice during the last two months, on account of the inclement weather. June would be much more satisfactory on all hands. Stores to Let. The large store in Waverley Block, formerly occupied by B. F. Ehlers & Co., will be subdivided and applica tion sihiould be made at once to Henry Waterhouse & Co., for stores of con venient size and good location. HENRY WATERHOUSE & CO. fl pi -AT- JORDAN'S.
