A MAKIKI CHATEAU
ELEVATION AND A FINE VIEW
Will Be a Handsome Structure.
Several Notable Features.
Koa Unique Parlor.
Senator 11. P. Baldwin, whose mate-
1 rial interests in the Island?, prominence
as a public man and well known philan
thropies make him one of the foremost
personalities of this country, is to have
a Honolulu residence. His plantation
holdings nnuer his own direction are
cn Maui and Kauai, where he has neat
homes. Mr. Baldwin will not be "the
next" Hawaiian planter to "build a
mansion in Oakland." He has shown a
preference for Honolulu. The plans
are nearing completion in the offices of
Ripley & Dickey, the architects in the
Safe Deposit Building, Fort street.
The structure which will, when
finished, perhaps rank as the finest
residence here, will be in the Makiki
district, the home locality which has
been built up so rapidly during the past
year. Mr. Baldwin desires elevation
and view and will have both. His lot is
on the Ewa side iof that of Jos. A. Gil
man, whose place is so well known cn
account of being the pioneer of hill
side homes. The ground for the new
place has a frontage of 300 feet, is
400 feet at the back and has a uniform
depth of 200 feet. It is at the head of
Kewalo street. The view commanded
includes Hcnohvlu and harbor, Wai
kiki and Diamond Head, the Pearl
Lochs territory and the "Waianae moun
tains and the ocean to the horizon.
Material for the house will be native
stone and shingles. The area to be
covered is 75x104 and the height will
be two stories with a large and airy
attic. In the plans are many striking
features. Mr. Baldwin has traveled
widely and with the idea of a model
horn: for ihimself has been a close ob
server of residence contour and
(let" "Is. Ripley & Dickey, with so
liberal a patron, have set out to supply
something beautiful and at the same
time in every way practical and com
fortable. The large hallway will have walls
and ceiling of polished koa and on the
winding stairway will be an especial
showing of the beauty of the glossy
The parlor will be elliptical in shape,
will be finished in white and will be
17x25 feet. It will be of colonial de
sign, with covered ceiling and between
the parlor and lanai will be bent plate
glass sliding doers.
The dining room will be finished in
koa. It will be 1Gx24 feet and oil the
end of the dining room will be the
3nservatory. Between tnese two rooms
will be square columns and a grill
work of Arabian detail. The conserva
tory, three steps lower than the dining
hall, will be 17x12 and will have a
floor of marble mosaics, with a pool in
On the ground floor is also the liv
ing room, 15x21 and off that a large
lanai, with the Waikiki and Diamond
Head view. In the living room will
be a recess for plants and on either
side of this recess book cases.
Two chambers and a sewing room
finish the list of large compartments
on the ground floor. There is a back
varanda and one L has the kitchen,
while the other has the bath room.
There is also to be a bath room on the
Upstairs there are to be three 'large
chambers and an office. One of these
hambers will be 16T-x2C with an alcove
The front elevation discloses for the
upper floor a loggia with four columns
and having a ceiling formed by a bar
rel vault which pierces the front gable
back to the house wall. On either side
of the loggia are open balconies with
the view grander if possible than from
The attic will be 34x50, will have
loggiars in the Waikiki and Ewa gables
and air from four sides.
This building will resemble, the
architects say, a chateau and was de
signed particularly with view to loca
tion. It will be on the upper terrace.
On the second terrace will be winding
drives. There will he suitable stables
on the premises.

A Handsome Folder.
Hackfeld & Co. Ltd., are distributing
locally, copies of a new folder issued
by the Pacific Mail S. S. Co. The print
is one of the neatest and most artistic
things of the sort ever seen here. The
first page is an excellent specimen of
the printer's handicraft and the de
signer's originality and taste. The
folder gives several pages to Honolulu,
recommending highly the Islands for
scenic beauty and health giving.

Those who know. The oft repeated ex

Terry says Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy gives better satisfaction than any
other in the market. He has been in
the drug business at Elkton, Ky., for
12 years; has sold hundreds of bottles of
this remedy and nearly all other cough
medicines manufactured, which shows
conclusively that Chamberlain's is the
most satisfactory to the people, and ia
the best. For sale by all druggists and
