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.

Eiculsive Franchise Bill Passed
By tie Senate.
HOUSE OH APPROPRIATIONS

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.
