GREATEST DRV DOCK,
To Be Built at Newport News at
a Cost of SI, OOO.OOO.
C. B. 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.

formerly occupied by B. F. Ehlers &

So better way to stop the leak,
than by getting a purse with some
lasting quality in the leather.
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.
