Ill UNCLE SAM BOYS ting to Amuse for a Wel come to Them. BALLY AT DRILL SHED TONIGHT Many Suggestions Are Made Ques tion of Shore Leave Probable Sailing Program. The Drill Shed meeting this evening is a public rally and is for the purpose of arranging reception and entertain ment of United States ships, crews and soldiers en route to Manila. The gathering is or happens to be under the auspices of the Hawaiian Fourth of July committee of 1897. This is because that was the organized body by which the matter was first con sidered. No criticism on this score has been heard and there can hardly be any dissatisfaction or questioning. The committee is composed of about seventy-five prominent citizens, with Geo. W. Smith as chairman and the meeting tonight will be a thoroughly representative convention. A good many suggestions for the ex tension of Hawaii's aloha to Uncle Sam's boys have been made. First and foremost it may be taken for granted that they will be given music and refreshments. Details can be set tled later. The first visitors to be looked after may be here on Sunday or Monday next. There is no official information as to the movements of transports or supply ships. From all that the Ad vertiser is able to gather, those who are giving the matter the most atten tion figure: That the City of Peking will leave first with ammunition and men and supplies generally for Dewey, that she will be sent post haste from San Francisco, stopping here but a few hours for coal and that she will be along; second, the Australia and City of Sydney are to come with men and to be under the convoy of the U. S. S. Charleston, a white ship not unknown in this port. The ammuni tion for the cargo of the Peking was suppose to have reached San Francisco from one to two days after the Gaelic sailed. Meantime, the three auxiliary ships were being prepared for the voy age. They will travel high speed to this port and here replenish coal bun kers. To a gentleman who will be in close communication with the three mer chantmen and the man-of-war on ar rival, there was yesterday broached the question of doubt. It was not believed that any number of the men would be permitted to come ashore. The officers will be in town as they like. This situation will not at all interfere with entertainment of the Americans. There would be some extra pleasure in it for the town peo ple if they had the task of going off in all kinds of craft to the transports. It was stated yesterday in an official quarter that the Alert might come down here and give the Bennington a chance to go on to Manila. The officers and men of the Bennington are fairly desperate over being held here. There are especially disappoint ed since learning of the excitement and glory their old friends of the Bal timore have had. An officer of the navy said yester day that as Admiral Dewey had an nexed coal piles, hospitals, water sup plies, land batteries, repair shops, docks, etc., he had likely also found over in Manila some ammunition that he could use. The Baltimore took out from here for the Asiatic squad ron 100 tons of ammunition brought here from the Coast by the Mohican. This cargo was unloaded at the Oahu railroad wharf and carried by lighters to the cruiser. At the meeting tonight the plan of having a holiday in town if the oppor tunity seems to justify, will be ad vanced. If an number of men in transit are given shore liberty it will be considered proper for business houses and Government offices to close at least part of a day. This will give ''all hands" the chance to assist in attentions to the callers. Tennis Tournament. It is now settled by the committee that the annual tournament of the Ha waiian Tennis Association will be held next month. Entries will open at the Hobron Drug Company store on June Sth, closing June 13th at 5 p. m. Play begins the 15th. Gentlemen must pay $1 registration fee. Ladies free. The tournament will include men's singles and doubles.. ladies' singles and mixed doubles. J. Q. Wood has been agreed upon as referee. Walter Dillingham stated yesterday that he would not be able to play in the tournament. During the preliminaries all the courts of the city will be used. On Vacation. James Bicknell, W. F. Storey and W. E. Beckwith, all employes of the Cus tom House, left for Maui on the Clan dine yesterday, to indulge in a two weeks' well-earned vacation. They will go to Kahului first and from that place will make visits to other points on Maui. They are thinking of mak ing the ascent of Haleakala. MIDNIGHT Blaze in Wharf Ware house of Hackfeld & Co. Large Storage of General Merchan dise Damaged 300 Sacks of - Wool A Red Hot Roof. the fire department was called out jus at the crack of midinght. The alarm was sent to the telephone offices fromhe Customs service watch of last night. At first it thought a ship was burning. The direction was to run to the Pacific Mail wharf. Two steamers and the chemical engine made good time to the water front. It was found that the fire was inside the large ware house of H. Hackfeld & Co., Ltd., just mauka of the shed of the Pacific Mail wharf. Suction pipes fyom the steamers were dropped into the bay. There seemed quite a wait for water. The high wind interfered with getting up steam. The chemical was taken on the dock, but could not get inside the building from that region. It was then brought to the town side, where one of the large double doors had been forced. A minute after chemical streams were applied there came water from both steamers. In about ten minutes there was no more fire. Damage will amount to several thou sand dollars. The storage place was well filled. Everything inside was in sured. The contents included 300 sacks of wool, bundles of sugar bags, sacks of flour, nails, matches, rope, wire, boxes of cloth and prints, in short merchandise of all kinds. Con siderable harm must have been done by water, though Chief Hunt tried to avoid this loss. The fire seemed to have started in ibout the center of the building. It seized well on the roof timbers, as the ron covering was red hot for many iards. Archie Gilfillan was on hand for the owners, but after interviewing watchmen and others thought it was only common guessing to attempt to say what caused the blaze. Any loose fire might have been carried through a ventilator by the prevailing wind, or a cigar or cigarette stump with fire might have been left inside during the day. Water was played on the place for perhaps half an hour. Then a force of Hackfeld men went to work. The captain of the steamer Cape Ot way ran a line of hose from his vessel. There will in all likelihood be a fire inquest. Two Civil Cases. Judges Perry and Stanley of the Cir cuit Court had juries and civil cases on "their hands" yesterday. Before Judge Perry it was a dispute between J. H. j Fisher and McChesney & Sons, grow ing out of an assignment, at one time made by PoppJeton, the baker. Frank Ferreira, assistant hack in spector, is defendant in a case before Judge Stanley. Ferreira, as an officer, forced an entrance to a residence on Punchbowl.- There is a claim for $300 of damages. In the lower Court the damage award was $5. A GREAT OPPORTUNITY. We will sell for one week Table Linen, Napkins, Sheeting, Pillow Cas ing, below cost.

HOUSE OH APPROPRIATIONS More Assistants for the Courts. The Band Will Play During the Period. SENATE. Seventy-eighth Day, May IT. The cable bill passed third reading. Not only was the original amendment carried, to which the Executive is op posed, making it necessary to secure the approval of the Secretary of State of the United States before the contract with the cable company becomes oper ative, but an additional amendment was passed providing that such ap proval shall be secured within six months from the date of the approval of the bill. Attorney-General Smith and Minister Damon, vigorously attacked the exclusive feature in the bill. Sen ator Hocking asked if the result of its passage would not in effect be a vote of want of confidence in the Exe cutive, lis right to discussion was questioned by Senator Brown on the point of order that there was no mo tion before the Senate. Senator Hock ing endeavored to make it debatable by a motion to lay on the table, which is non-debatable. The motion was lost and the bill passed, by a vote of 10 to 1, Senator Hocking voting in the negative. Senator Brown's substitute opium bill, placing the importation and sale under the authority of the Board of Health, passed second reading. Third reading was sot for Wednesday. Minister Cooper reported several acts signed by the President. Three bills were returned from the Printing Com mittee. The bill to create a marine park on the east side of the harbor was report ed on with recommendation for pass age. Reports were also made on the House amendments to tne Land Act and recommending the bill to license the local manufacture of grapes. These reports were received to be considered with the bills. The Public Lands Committee recom mended the passage of the bill relating to the construction of railways over tide water. Two bills, introduced by Minister Cooper, making slight amendments to the Laud Act and confirming the sale of two lots of land in North Kona, passed first reading and went to the Printing Committee. At 11:30 o'clock the Senate adjourn ed. HOUSE. Rep. Isenberg reported for the Mili tary Committee on certain items in the appropriation bill in part, as fol lows: "We find that, during the last ses sion of the Legislature the appropria tion for the support of military pay roll was $133,700.50, but of this amount onlv $112,009.02 was used, leaving a balance for Government realization of S21.G90.5S. -This was accomplished through very conservative manage ment, ail we believe that the appro priation asked for at this session of the Legislature, namely: $110,000.00 is an extremely reasonable one, and know ing as we do, that the Minister of For eign Affairs will expend no more of the appropriation of this department than he deems absolutely necessary, we would recommend that the sum of $110,000 asked for be granted. "The annropriation of $36,000 asked for the maintenance of the band is the same as that passed at the last session of the Legislature, and we re commend that it be granted." Rep. Gear reported for the Commit tee on Health on a large number of items. This report was laid on the table to be considered with the bill. Rep. Robertson reported for the Ju diciary Committee on certain items in the appropriation bill. Report laid on the bill to be considered with the bill. Rep. Loebenstein made two reports for the Public Lands Committpe. The same course was taken with these. The appropriation bill was taken up on second reading. The President's salary went through as in the bill, -rr'-u noma tn t Vo itfm of $4.f;00 for I V 11 ' 11 It V -l 1 J v vv - j Princess Kaiulani, the majority of the I committee report, raising the amount to $6,000 was moved adopted. Rep. FOR McCandless moved to strike out the item but this motion was not seconded. The next discussion arose on the item of ?1.S00 for the fourth clerk of the First Circuit. The committee re commended striking out the whole thing and doing away with the office altogether. Rep. Gear objected and moved for passage of the item as in the bill. He read a communication from the Chief Clerk of the Supreme Court in which ho stated that the Chief Jus tice's opinion on the matter had not been asked. Rep. Robertson objected to the lan guage of Clerk Henry Smith in saying that the committee had not made pro per investigation. The clerk himself had been seen and also others who know about the workings of the Court. Rep. Achi was a little stronger in his language. Clerks of the Court were in the habit of taking outside work and of using the time that should be given to their regular duties. The Chief Clerk himself went to Maui not long ago on business outside of his duties. He charged the estate he was working for a certain amount of money for his services and at the same time drew his salary from the Government. This did not look as it there was enough work to keep four clerks busy. The recommendation of the commit tee was adopted and the office of fourth clerk abolished. At 12 m. the House took a recess un til 1:30 p. m. AFTERNOON SESSION. Upon arrival at the item of $12,000 for the salary of the Minister of For eign Affairs, Minister Cooper arose and gave the President's sentiments. Minister Damon stated that the mat ter was a delicate one and particular ly so, from the fact that the President had recommended the raise in salary. However, for the present it was not a question of salaries that should agi tate this Legislature. There were more important matters to be consid ered. The men in the present Minis try should stand by the President in the matter of the original salaries to show the people they were not in office for coin but to see the country out of a very unpleasant situation. "We are not out of the woods yet," said Minis ter Damon. "I cannot speak for ray colleagues but I believe they think the same as I do. I think it Is a mis take to change the salaries one dol lar." Various members spoke on tho mat ter and the item finally passed at $9,000. The House adjourned at 3:25 p. m. NOT NEUTRALITY. Tenor of pispatches Sent on to. Washington. There was not a great deal of news to the Government by the Gaelic. From Minister Hatch and Mr. Thurston there were letters without special fea tures in the information line. The in timation is given that annexation is or appears to be very near. It Is stated, however, that "war legislation" has the right of way. The Administration at Washington is eager as ever to ef fect annexation. Important and significant dispatches have been sent by the Cabinet here to Washington. A Government member approached on the subject spoke with much caution and extreme reserve. He said In substance, but rather without committing himself to the expression, that Hawaii had sent word that the United States would receive at this port all the favors "consistent with the relations of the two countries, past and present." It was hinted that this defi nition of attitude might be accepted quite liberally. The South Sea Island leper men tioned several days ago as having es caped from the Kalihi receiving sta tion, was found dead in a barn in Palama, Monday night. The man when taken from his home first was very feeble. He was quite aged and said that he preferred death to separation from his friends. Royal makes the food pure, wholesome and delicious.
