HALF A CENTURY OF MASONRY Organization Here Under Califor nia's Grand Lodge-First Meeting-Temple Pictures. Parts 4, 5, 6,7 and 8 of that superb publication "Fifty Years of Masonry in California," are being distributed by the Hawaiian News Company. This to members of the craft in the Islands is a most interesting and valuable subscription publication. It is. on the art order, being illustrated with the finest steel engravings and. half tones and having initial letters of original designs embellished in colors. The eamon would prove an ornament to any library. It is presumed that quite a number of the Masons of this place are securing the work. Part 6 of "Fifty Years of Masonry in California" is, of especial interest to the local Mystic Tie men. It tells of Hawaiian Lodge No. 21, which is under the Grand Jurisdiction of Cali fornia. The other lodges here are re spectively attached to France and Aus tralia. In this official record Hawai ian Lodge No. 21 is set down as hav ing held its first regular meeting on Thursday evening, February 19, 1852. There were present S. Lyon, John Meek, Chas. W. Vincent, A. C. Mott, J. Brown, D. P. Penhallow. Wni. Wond. J. Irwin, J. G. Sawkins, F. W. Thomp son and A. J. Cartwright. Petitions were received from M. R. Harvey, Henry Macfarlane, R. Coady, James Dean and James Montgomery. The first real business transacted was ar rangement for purchase of a lot in Nuuanu cemetery. Of the present days the history says: "Hawaiian Lodge No. 21 now num bers 146 Master Masons on its roll and is in a flourishing condition. We hope that Masonry will soon be so flourish ing in the Hawaiian Islands under the flag of the United States that our brethren there may have a grand lodge of their own. In all of these forty-five long years, Hawaiian No. 21 has been a bright star and a lighthouse of brotherly love, relief and truth in mid-ocean. The wandering brother on the Sigh seas has been guided to a port and haven of refuge and wel comed to the warm fraternal em braces of his faithful and loving breth ren, awaiting to receive him with an earnest and true aloha and to furnish him poi either with or without a spoon, and if cold would conduct him to the largest and warmest kitchen in the world, Kilauea, where the fires are always aglow and the range con sumes its own ashes after the yams have been cooked. "The lodge has had upon Us roll of members grand, big-hearted men who have been an honor and pride to the craft. It has maintained its existence under peculiar difficulties and under an unstable government. Under these uncertainties and lack of permanent government our Hawaiian brethren have gone ahead in laying the founda tions of Masonry well, and have built a temple of which they have a right to feel proud." Special mention is given the char acters and services of the late Theo. C. Porter and the late Alex. J. Cart wright. Mr. Cartwright was a life member of the California Society of Pioneers. It was 18S7 before the Grand Lodge of California sent an official to visit No. 21. The banquet on the occasion was honored by the presnce of the late King Kalakaua, he having been a Mason. The inspector said that for 34 years Hawaiian Lodge had been completely left to itself, life a waif in mid-ocean, to sink or swim, survive or perish a lone light-ship of Free Ma sonry. I was pleased to find the Lodge out of debt. From its location it has frequent calls for charity and I learn that a needy brother has never gone empty-handed from its doors. In this part 6 of the series are pic tures of the Masonic Temple at the corner of Hotel and Alakea, showing both exterior and interior. Exciting Runaway. There was a very exciting runaway on King street, near Thomas Square about 6 o'clock last evening. A Chinese cabman left his horse untied. In the rik was a wee bit of a pake child. Something frightened the horse and away he went towards Union Square. As the rig was jumping along after the horse in front of J. B. Atherton's resi dence, the child fell out and into the road near the sidewalk. A number o citizens were spectators and thought that the little one must be seriously injured. Very fortunately indeed, the child was not hurt at all. It had fallen from the seat to the floor, thence to the step and out. The youngster was taken to its home in the neighborhood. Stockade Down. The stockade which surrounds the proposed Union Square site for the C. L. Carter Memorial Fountain.will be gone from the place entirely today. The work of taking down the fence and fill ing what excavation had been ma'de was started yesterday under direction of the committee. By evening only a small pile of the lumber remained and it was marked" all of last night by a white light. A location for the foun tain will be settled upon by committees from the Citizens' Guard, the Senate and the House. After the passage of the resolution by the Legislature disap proving of Union Square as a site, the Interior Department sent notification that the place could not be used. There is again talk of locating the fountain at the park. The fountain will be pf native stone and will be a handsome memorial. To Promote Immigration. Francis M. Hatch, Hawaiian Envoy to the United States writes from Wash ington recommending that the Govern ment here appropriate the sum of $250,000 to be devoted to the assistance of emigration from the United States to these Islands. The Cabinet has de cided to refer the matter to the finan ces commitees of the Senate and House. The amount of $50,000 was set aside at the last session of the Legis lature and the same amount is in the ar.oropriation bill for the present ses sion for this purpose, but there was lit tle call upon the fund. It was from this source that Mr. Fitzgerald wished to draw means to further his project of placing a number of American farmers on each plantation. Hawaiian Relationship. Native geanoliogy made plain by the experts in the craft is puzzling enough o most of the lawyers and judges and to nearlv all the laymen. But when a question of relationship comes up un expectedly in a trial it produces mild consternation. There was such an in stance before Judge Perry in the Cir cuit Court yesterday, with Deputy At torney General Dole on one side and Charles Creighton on the other. This is the statement of fact and question, with the answer yet to come: My mother (A) had a sister (B) who had a son (C), and he had a wife (D), whose sister (E), was this man's (F) wife, and in that way they were con nected. What is the relationship be tween A and F? Japanese Woman Hurt. Dr. Reginald Reid of Waialua arriv ed in town yesterday with the news that a Japanese woman fell into one of the cane rollers at Kahuku planta tion at about 10 o'clock in the morning and was very seriously hurt. This was received over the telephone at Waialua from Geo. Weight at Kahuku. The ex tent of the injuries were not commu nicated. The unfortunate woman will arrive in town early this morning. Provision for her at the hospital has already been made. Queen Victoria's Birthday. The 79th anniversary of Queen Vic toria's birthday will this year be cele brated on the evening of May 24th by a ball at Independence park in aid of the funds of the British Benevolent So ciety. The tickets, price $2.50, admit ting a gentleman and ladies, will be in the hands of the members of the sub committees of the general committee of British residents tomorrow. The Brit ish societies are working in cordial co operation to make this dance a grand success. DEPBNDABLF. BARGAINS. Now that the stock of the fire sale is out of the way, L. B.

MUST SPRINKLE Legislature Prevent Has Passed Act to MoDtb Spyinjr. PLUMBING REGULATIONS NOW No More New Bills From the House Long Afternoon Secret Session Held. SENATE. Seventy-second Day, May 10. When the President affixes his sig nature to the bill passed by the Senate, it will be unlawful for laundrymen to sprinkle clothes with the mouth. The Senate passed the bill at third reading and it goes to the Committee on Re vision. The bill is aimed to stop the almost universal practice in Chinese laundries of sprinkling clothes by ejec ting a spray of water from the mouth. The bill is a sanitary measure. A similar enactment has been rigidly en forced in San Francisco for nearly a year past. It is not known that any specific case of sickness has been traced to this cause in Honolulu but physicians assert that a grave danger exists. The House bill amending the land act relating to the provision for leased ands passed first reading, was read by title and went to the Committee on PnhliV T anile Senator Holstein was granted leave of absence until Saturday. The House bill creating on Auditor- LGeneral's Department passed first read- ng. After reading second -time by title the bill went to the Finance Com mittee. The plumbing bill was taken up on second reading with majority and min ority reports. On motion of Senator Lyman Hilo was included in the regu lations for Honolulu. As amended by the Senate the . Board of Plumbers is to consist of three members, the Sup erintendent of Public Works as chair man, the Inspector of Plumbing and one master plumber. An amendment was passed changing the requirements for size and quality of surface pipes and the bill passed second reading. Third reading was set for P riday. The Finance Committee reported that they have nearly completed the examination of the various depart ments. Senator Lyman gave notice of his intention to introduce an act for the building of a railroad on the Island of Hawaii. At 12 o'clock, the Senate adjourned. HOUSE. Speaker Kaulukou was not present at the opening of the House so the Vice-Speaker took the chair. Mr. Kau lukou arrived in about a half hour. Rep. Gear stated that the Minister of the Interior ad interim had prom ised to answer questions regarding Richards street slip by Monday. No thing had been heard of it and he would move that time be extended until Wednesday and to no later dote. Rep. Pogue stated that some of the Ministers might be able to explain. None were present. Thereupon Rep. Gear withdrew his motion until later. The following resolutions were pre sented and referred to the Commit tee on Public Lands: Achi That $1,000 be inserted in the appropriation bill for a bridge over the stream at Waimea, Hawaii, where the lives of two men had recently been lost. Gear That a suitable appropriation be inserted in the appropriation bill, to fix up Beretania street from the Kapahulu road to the tramways tables. The matter of consideration of the resolution setting a date for the ces sation of introduction of bills in the House was the special order of the day. Rep. Achi made a long speech on the subject stating various reasons why he believed the resolution, already adopted, an injustice and a blockade against the- voice of the people. Rep. Pogue moved for the readoption of the resolution setting the date for cessation of introduction of bills in the House for April ISth. Only three voted against this. Second reading House bill 57, relat ing to incorporated companies. After considerable discussion, further consid- oration was doforrod until Wednesday. Second reading of House bill 50, re lating to the Land Act. Further con sideration deferred until Wednesday. Second reading and passage of House bill 79, relating to the practice of vete rinary surgery, medicine and dentis try. Third reading and passage of House bill 64, relating to the construction of railways. A FT i : U N O C) X S E S S It) N . At the opening of the afternoon ses sion which, was delayed about 15 min utes, Rep. McCandless moved that the House go into caucus for 15 minutes for the purpose of considering an im portant matter. This was carried and the reporters were asked to depart. The House remained in session for about a half hour when Reps. Robert son and Pogue, understood to be a committee, walked upstairs into the Senate chamber. They returned after about five minutes and the House again went into deliberation until after 3 o'clock. The clerk and ser- geant-at-arms were asked to absent themselves. When the doors were thrown open again the motion was made and carried that the House ad journed. It is understood that the matter un der consideration during the caucus was the present relations between the United States and this country and the matter of neutrality. Conferences will be held between committees of the Senate and House and in a few days some line of action will be decided on. Soldiers After Gold. Three men formerly in the National Guard barracks here, are now in quest of gold in the frozen north. Sanstrom and Turner, both young fellows, have written from Chilcoot Pass, enclosing their picture in heavy traveling appar el. Urband Conklin, who was also a Grand Army man here, sends word that he is progressing on the way to the placer fields. Sanstrom and Turner are "boys" above the average here and left with good records and .bearing the best of wishes for their success. Mr. Conklin has the backing of some of the solid men of the town. He has been in mining before. Conklin was one of the men at Bertleman's place in Waikiki in January, 1895, When the house was un der rifle bombardment from Diamond Head. Conklin was out in the open shooting at insurgents at long range. The extractor of his Springfield broke and he had to use the ramrod to get the shells out. One bullet from above struck the ramrod from Conklin's hand, bus scarcely disturbed the veter an. He is a very cool and a decidedly brave man. For July 4. In a few days there will be called a meeting of the committee on Fourth of July celebration that was selected last year when Minister Sewall presided at the public meeting in the Arlington hotel. This will be for the purpose of deciding in a way upon what should be done for an 1898 celebration. It is ex pected that the usual program will be followed, with fireworks as a feature. J. A. Kennedy, by the way, has an nounced that he declines to any longer serve as director general for the pyro technic department. In West River District. The acting secretary of the sanitary board has informed the Hongkong Press that rinder pest exists at the present time at Macao, Canton, and along the delta of the West river, bul that every possible precaution is being taken by the officers of the sanitary board to prevent the importation of infected meat into the markets of Hongkong colony.
