Marked Progress Made During- the Past Twelve Months Points Made in the Pastor's Address. The regular annual me-viing of ihe Second Congregation of St. Andrew's Cathedral was held in the Sunday School rooms of the church last, even ing. The first business of the evening was the report of the treasurer which "was unanimously accepted. This showed the finances of the church, including offertories and subscriptions, very much increased over last. year. In every way there was a show of material increase in the number of subscribers and members. The following officers and commit tees were chosen to serve during the ensuing year: Church wardens Geo. S. Harris Sr. and Judge V. L. Stanley. Sidesmen E. V. Jordan, J. W. Pod more, John Effinger, Iouis Miranda R. A. Jordan, E. R. Po'.som. II. W. M Mist and Joseph Kalaulu. Treasurer F. M. Starkey.

He referred to the number of communicants at the Easter service as being the largest dur ing the history of St. Andrew's. He had been very .much assisted by the members and especially .the young Ha waiians and St. Andrew's Guild. Abou 1200 people now constituted the mem bership of the church. During the en suing year he expected to carry some new ideas into effect, ;this for the pro motion of the welfare of the church He hoped to "have the hearty support o the members since without this support he would be powerless. The indefatiga ble interest taken by Mr. Geo. S. Har ris, in looking after the congregation and their supply of books, was specially mentioned. The clerk of the Parish was instruct ed to notify Mr. F. M. Wakefield tha the meeting had passed a resolution of thanks for the valuable help he gave the church on Easter Sunday by pre siding at the 'organ. KNGLAM) TO AUSTRALIA. Project to Connect Two Distant Laius By Cable. The longest cable in the world wiil doubtkss be the direct telegraphic con nection between England and Austra lia, for which plans have len submit ted to the English Government. The cable will begin on the coa;t of Corn- j wall and be laid to Gibraltar (1.1 0 S nautical miles), from there to Sierra Ieone. the English possession in New Guiana (2.21'J nautical miles), via St. Helena ($10) to Capetown (1.910) from which city a telegraphic connection ex ists with Natal.

Court at Kailua. Attorneys Humphreys and Magoon returned yesterday from Kailua, Ha waii, where they have been attending court. The term was a very light one and probably came to an end yesterday, The most important matter was the reduction of sentences for some Kohala natives who had been convicted of cat tle stealing. The District Judge had made the penalty a year in prison for each. This was changed on appeal to $50 fine only. Judge Kalua is presiding at Kailua and gave entire satisfaction to all. Deputy Attorney-General Dole will return by the Upolu and Attorney Chas. Creighton is visiting friends at Wailuku, Maui. IJase Ia.li Joke. Al Moore and "Jim" Gorman of the Regiment baseball team went into a town sporting goods house yesterday and Mcors quietly asked for a baseball mitt, meaning, of course, one of the big gloves used by catchers. The clerk evidently was unfamiliar with the na tional pastime, for he replied with re gret in his tones: "No; quite sorry, but we have no baseball nets. We have tennis nets, good as any in town and cheap too." Gorman remarked: "He must think we're fielders for some oth er team," and then Moore explained what was wanted. Police Court. In the Police Court yesterday morn ing the cases of Luis de Jesus and Vin- cente Fernandez, charged with assault on police officers, was set for tomorrow. The forenoon and most of the after noon was taken up with the case of the 21 Chinese, charged with playing and being present at a game of "paikou." Attorney De Bolt appeared for the de fense and Marshal Brown for the pros ecution. The two bankers were fined $100 and costs apiece, while the re maining 19 were fined $10 and costs. An appeal was noted. PERSONAL MENTION. G. B.

She made the trip from Eahaina, including a stop of 40 minutes at Kaunakahakai, Molokai, in 5 hours and 20 minutes, thus beat ing the record of the Kinau. The In ter-Island people are very much pleased with the feat of the Mauna Loa. THE MODERN GENERATION OF MEN. Physically men are better today than ever before.
