WW Theatrical Friends. It is reported again that T. Daniel Frawley is to be wedded. This time the bride to be, is an Eastern lady not of the theater. Harry Corson Clarke wrote from Salt Lake to a Honolulu friend that the comedy "Too Much Johnson" was do ing a fine business on the road. Mr. Clarke has not yet abandoned his pro ject of after a time bringing a special repertoire company to this place for a season of two months. Miss Blanche Bates is doing exceed ingly well in New York City. On ac count of the illness of Ada ReJhan, Miss Bates has had exceptional opportun ities and has improved them to the full. Miss Bates' future with, the Daly com pany is now assured. A Narrow Escape. The steamer Maui .had just dropped anchor at Lahaina at 10 p. m. Satur day and shore boats were near by anxi to take people ashore for a little breathing spell. A number of people got into one of these boats and among them was Mr. G. P. "Wilder. The waves were high and the night a rather rough one. As the boat was nearing shore, the man at the helm lost control and a wave swept the boat close to the rocks. Mr. Wilder was dumped into the sea, but had the presence of mind to clamber upon the rocks. Soon a re ceding wave carried the boat out and shallow water was made. The passen gers were then carried ashore by the crew of the boat. Game Plentiful. I Senator and J. S. McCandless, Man ager Carter of the Molokai Ranch Com pany, W. H. Hoogs and Earnest Ren ken indulged in a deer hunt in the hills near Kaunakakai last week. Renken was the only one of the party who was able to miss. "Kinio" McCandless bag ged a fine buck and brought the antlers home. Mr. Hoogs, Senator McCandless and Mr. Carter did some effective shooting. The Senator was so im pressed with the appearance of harm left on the deer ranges that he is in favor of some indirect legislation against the pest. Six deer were brought here from Japan 30 years ago and from this small beginning there are thou sands on Molokai. The Singing Drew. There must have been fully a thou sand people at the band concert in Emma Square last evening. The square itself was so crowded that it was diffi cult to get about. Outside, carriages could hardly pass. The attraction of the evening was the most excellent singing of John Edwards and James Shaw, who gave a Hawaiian song and were encor ed three times. Even then, the ap plause continued. Miss Kanoho did very well. Sumner Ellis 111. Sumner Ellis, one of the band boys is now in the hospital, where he will undergo another operation. On Sun day, he was forced to cease playing in the concert at Makee Island before its completion. Sunday night, his sister rowed ashore from Sumner's Island and took out a physician. Yesterday afternoon he was comfortable enough to be removed to the hospital. Miss Harriet Lewers will leave for San Francisco on the Rio de Janeiro. She will be away about three months, returning at the end of that time with her brother, William Lewers, who will settle here in business. NEARLY A RIOT. Police Called to Disperse Sunday Gathering. Sunday was a great holiday for the Portuguese and was likewise the sec ond anniversary of the riot among the Portuguese up at the head of Emma street. Had it not been for the timely appearance of the police, there would undoubtedly have been a repetition of the event of two years ago. The Por tuguese were spoiling for a fight and 50 or more were wrangling when the police arrived. Officer Frank Ferreira was the first to arrive on the scene. He got off his horse and began cautioning the Portu guese to cease their demonstrations and return to their homes. Suddenly his horse, which he had left standing hardby, jumped and ran off. The bridle was found to be in pieces later. Ferreira believes this was the work of some of the Portuguese. For awhile, things were pretty lively. Soon, however, the police gained the supremacy and hostilities were at an end. Louis de Jesus and Vincente Fer nandes were arrested yesterday on a charge of interference with the police. J. M. Vivas has been retained to ap pear for the defendants. The case will probably come up for trial in the Dis trict Court today. A Pretty Wedding. There was quite an attendance at St. Andrew's Cathedral last evening, to witness the marriage of Miss Lillian West and L. T. Prescott. Rev. Alex. Mackintosh performed the ceremony. The church was handsomely decorated, and the charming bride, was in a most attractive costume. A reception was held after the wedding... Mr. Prescott occupies a responsible position with L. B. Kerr. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. B. West Mr. and Mrs. Prescott will reside in Honolulu. A number of the wheel riders started in with training at Cyclomere yester day.
