Orcutt, president of the New port. News Shipbuilding Co., has in formed Secretary Long that he intends to begin immediately the construction at Newport News of the largest dry dock, in the world, capable when com pleted of accommodating at once two of the largest battleships or three small cruiser-. The dock will be without an equal, and for length and breadth surpass all of the great docks of the British Gov ernment and others controlled by pri vate parties. Work on this big basin begins at once, the site having already been selected. In length it will exceed 000 feet or be at least 230 feet longer than the biggest of the transatlantic liners. It will have a beam double that of almost" any battleship, and when completed will have cost $1,000,000. The fact that Newport News will be pro tected by the defenses of Fort Monroe makes the dry dock of additional value to the United States navy. The new graving doc k at Glasgow, of a length of 850 feet, is the next largest in exist ence in the world. The projected dock improvements at Liverpool include, however, a graving dock of 900 feet, the same length as the projected dry dock in Newport News. Drew a Crowd. Kahahawai, a young Hawaiian, was arrested -last 'night and held for inves tigation. He walked into the house of a Japanese and, after making himself at home for a little while, walked up stairs and began looking about for what he could find on the premises. The Japanese became tired of this kind of thing and called in the police. Bi cycle Patrolmen Jackson and Gardner went to the place in Chinatown and found the native upstairs. He waxed very insolent and would not 'submit to arrest. He caught Jackson by the throat and tried to throttle him, but Jackson was acquainted with that part of the business himself and it was not long before the native was safe in a cell in the police station. Kahahawai was slightly under the influence of liquor. He told the story that he had been inveigled into the upper room by the Japanese and had been held there. He declared that a job had been set up on him. However, when ;he was search ed at the police station, some fine silk handkerchiefs were found on his per son. A crowd of some 200 Japanese and Chinese gathered around the police statio'n after the arrest. Cyclomere. Manager Chas. F. Murray stated last evening that ,the opening of Cyclomere for a bicycle race meet had been post poned till the 30th, one week from Sat urday evening next. The reason for this is the uncertainty of the light supply. The Hawaiian Electric Works expects to be able to furnish .the cur rent by the date given. If not, a;n ar rangement will be made by the track people with the Government for a tem-. porary service. Most of the wheel men are glad that there has been a postponement, for only a few of the riders have done as much training as they desire. Wells for Molokai. Kimo (J. S.) McCandless, left by the "Wilder steamer Helene yesterday aft ernoon for Kaunakakai, Molokai. Mr. McCandless took along a complement of men and a complete artesian well boring outfit. This is for the purpose of filling an order of the new Molokai Ranch Company. "Work will be com menced at once for a well near Kau nakakai. If this is' a success a number of others will be bored a'nd cane plant ing in an extensive manner, with a Molokai mill to follow. Mr. McCand less is confident that he will strike a. flow of good water 'near Kaunakakai at a reasonable depth. Grieg Concert. One of the rarest musical treats of the season will be the "Grieg" concert by the Musical Circle of the Kilohana Art League at the league rooms this evening, beginning at S o'clock. The circle has taken particular pains with the program and has provided some thing very much out of the ordinary. The hail at the corner of Fort and Hotel streets will be decorated in the style of the Norwegians, and the music will be Norwegian throughout. The people who have the affair in charge with it stated that any of the members of the league who wish to. may bring a friend. Not the Kaena. The Inter-Island Co. ilcnies the story published in one of the afternoon pa pers to the effect that the Kaena will o to Laysan Island with provisions. The Kaena could not go. However, negotiations are now pending for send ing one of the Inter-Island steamers. This, according to a man who knows about the affairs of the company, will undoubtedly be the steamer Noeau. Case of A. A. Croier. Friends of A. A. Crozier railed at this office last evening and expressed indignation over the manner in which that gentleman's visit to Honolulu had been depicted in an evening pap-:r. Mr. Crozier has been a professor in the Michigan State Agricultural Univer sity. That he was here ill was about the only correct statement in half a column cf grossly indelicate comment upon the incident. Mr. Crozier had means sufficient for his needs and found friends here. He was not turned out of the Queen's Hospital. He was not at any time an inmate of the insti tution. He was not turned out of a hotel or a boarding house. He was not a hermit lying down on Diamond Head awaiting the end. He took up his abode in a tent there because he thought it best for his health. Mr. Crozier is a quiet, cultivated gentle man and will be mo--t deeply pained by such crtiel publicity as has been given him. ' ' ! Heavy Salvage. (Skaguay Searchlight, March 23.) Some time during Saturday night the launch from the bark Highland Light broke loose from her moorings and drifting down the bay was picked up by some boatmen. It was run on the beach by them and is now held for $100 salvage. The Highland Light was in this port some months ago. STORES TO LET. The large store in "Waverley Block, formerly occupied by B. F.

We believe a poor purse is dear at any price; and for that reason will not allow them to creep into our stock. ' Our leathers are all choice Seal, Alorroco, Calf, Hog-Skin, Monkey, Lizard, Rattle Snake, Kangroo, and other choice skins. The mountings and shape leave nothing to be desired, and so differ ent from anything else in the city, that you are assured of a choice and exculsive pattern beside the lasting quality of the leather itself. We also have a good selection of silver and silver gilt chain purses, to be carried with a chain round the neck. Very stylish for stylish people.
