THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVEKTISEK : HONOLULU, MAY 10, 1S9S.
i ; ; . V 4 w An Important Notice To Whom. . . . This May Concern E feel that we are the servants of the public, because the public supports us and pays us, with our yearly profits, for the services which we render them. Like good servants, we are not content unless we render to our patrons the very best service possible and all which that implies. While the support which we have received in the past has been most gratifying and would lead us to believe that we have been giving satisfaction, we are satisfied short of nothing that is not an improvement on the past. We and the buyers of our various depart ments have scoured the markets of the world in order that we may this Spring place before our patrons everything in the way of men's, boy's and children's apparel which is best, newest and most serviceable, at the lowest price consistent with the high standard de manded of us. Our Spring Stock is now ready for your in spection, so without further ado or blare of trumpets we ask you, at your convenience and leisure, to inspect our Spring offerings and pass judgment upon them today, tomor row, or whenever you choose.

This was intimated in the Ad vertiser yesterday morning. Consider ate effort was made in the direction of inducing the lessees to make one more effort. After making up their minds, however, the boys were firm. On the two nights they lose a couple of hundred dollars outside of a con cession made as to rent by the owner. Allan Jones was the first to suggest blue ribbon meet for the benefit of the hui. All the racers at once offered their services for an evening, but the new promoters did not care to try the experiment. Manager Murray was es pecially averse to this idea. He did not think it would be a go. Jones. King, Ludloff, Manoa, Giles, Sylvester, Williams, Whitman and all the other speed merchants were anxious to help the hui out of the deficit corner. Jones said he would ride twice, if necessary and if given pace would goon anexhi- mile in two minutes. O O 0 O 0 o 0 o 0 o 0 o 0 o 0 o 0 Every Style of Straw Hat lade to Order.

The music and the readings were ex cellent and the addresses had been carefully prepared. Perhaps the best paper of the evening was Dr. A. Mar ques' "Report on the Theosophical So ciety." He told of the origin and ob jects of the association, of how it was planted in the United States by Mme. Blavatsky and how the general head quarters are now maintained at Adyar, India, by Colonel Olcott, the president. There are seven great sections taking in all portions of the world and each in charge of a general secretary. During the past year 69 new branches have been chartered, making a total of 408, without counting the American se ceders who are now themselves divid ed into two bitterly opposed factions. The society as a whole enjoys much activity of a highly progressive order. In Ceylon alone it has started and con tinues to support 105 schools with 17, 000 children. There is in Madas a spe cial school for poor children and in nearly every branch are lotus circles for the training of children. The liter ature consists of hundreds of books and of 16 ably conducted reviews or periodicals. Propaganda work is car ried on by special committee and spe cial lecturers. The society has a total membership of about 20,000,. including many of the most eminent men and women of the day. The Waverley Club President A. V. Gear presided over the special meeting of the Waverley Club on Saturday evening. The com mittee of management reported pro gress in the matter of the revision of the Constitution and were granted un til the next quarterly meeting to pres ent their suggestions for revision. The club then elected 15 new mem bers and adjourned, the business hav ing been promptly transacted within 15 minutes. The executive committee subsequent ly met and transacted considerable business in connection with the pro gress of the club, which is anxiously awaiting the S. S. Zealandia with the new pool balls and other billiard table material. Steps were also taken to prevent the use of the club rooms by unauthorized persons. A book of "suggestions and complaints" was also ordered, in which the members, in the absence of a com mittee man, can register their personal impressions for the benefit of the club. Visitors are gladly welcomed on the introduction of a member and special cards of admission are issued to them, good for five weeks. Pearl City Vegetables. Byron O. Clark, who now has his Pearl City market gardens well estab lished, sent to the offices of the Gazette company a box of tomatoes equal in appearance and quality to the imported article. Other vegetables that must find ready sale here are being produced by the Hawaiian Fruit and Plantation Company, of which Mr. Clark is the manager. Strawberries will soon be on market from these gardens. Mr. Clark came here from Pasadena, Cal., where he had been successful as a farmer. He believed that truck gardening would pay here and his judgment is being vindicted. Mr. Clark is both a scienti fic and a practical farmer and will show the consumers here, vegetables better than any yet produced. But there will be no blue ribbon meet. The proposed matches between Sylves ter and Whitman, Martin and Manoa, King and Ludloff. Giles and King are off. The stiKKestion was made last even ing that some such society as the Strangers' Friend or American Relief Fund secure the track for a couple of Saturday evenings now and build up some surplus. There is also the Ha waiian Relief Society. It is believed that all the boys would be willing to ride and that Mr. Desky would allow the track to be used, delaying the dumping of it into the lake. Everyone in town fond of good, clean, manly sport will regret that Honolulu has failed to support such a beautiful track as Cyclomere. It is the scenic track of the whole world and is in every way equipped quite up to date.

It was decided that the children died on account of poison administered with the knowl edge and advice of the mother. The Chinese woman is still held at the sta tion. Tt may be that the charge of manslaughter will be entered against her. She continues low spirited and morose and still says that it is her desire to die and join her husband and children.
