BEER If. t PENH I Hale Mi Rill Gion FROM WNL EASS1E Island Man Has His Alas ka Mining Outfit. Writes From Duluth Bound West. Prospecting Drill and Mechan ical Pans Interview. Hawaii's own '"Billie" formerly of ! Kealia pi" tation, was the first week of this month at Duluth. Minn., the guest of Edward Z. Williams, owner and manager of the Lyceum theater at that place. Mr. Williams is well known here. He is the brother of Mrs. H. W. Howard and has twice visited the Islands. The Lyceum theater, by the way, is one of the handsomest and most expensive play houses of the "United States. The superintendent of con- architect and strucaion for the theater was Mr. Trap- j hagen, now in business in this city, j Mr r:as? p. who is bound for Alaska i mining fields ultimately, writes to a friend that he stopped at Duluth on the wav back to San Francisco from New York. He had also visited Wash ington, Baltimore, Cleveland and tni- cago'. t v r-icsip ii? backed heavily in a big undertaking by Island men. He has had some experience at mining and was an excellent machinist and a thorough engineer before he came to take charge of sugar mills here eigh teen years ago. For his work in the gold fields he has had built a boiler 12-h.p. that weighs only G90 pounds and an engine of the same power which he declares with enthusiasm to he a little marvel. To complete this outfit there is a placer prospecting drill from which big results are ex pected. The design is Mr. Eassie's own. This drill can be sent through almost any sort of a formation at the rate of eight to ten feet per hour. It brings up a core of four and one-half inches and in a day or two a depth of fifty feet can be prospected. Now as to the equipment for the actual mining work. Mr. Eassie has had constructed two mechanical gold pans. Each one is capable of doing the work of fifty men with pick and shovel. It will be seen that Mr. Eassie will be quite furnished for business when he gets into the gold territory. He is now in San Francisco, having reached the Occidental hotel about the 10th. Mr. Eassie sends aloha to all Hono lulu and Island friends. Mrs. Eassie is now in New York City with rela tives of her husband's and is enjoying her visit there very much. While in Duluth Mr. Eassie was interviewed for the Tribune, the leading newspaper or that place and among other things said: "The war will have the effect of hastening the annexation of the Isl ands to the United States. Nothing may be done at this time, for the country is too much engaged", perhaps, but I think the eyes of the nation will be opened to the 'desirability of the Islands for a naval station as well as for extending wealth and territory. It was an awful foolish move on the part of Cleveland to pull down the American flag on the Islands after it had once been raised. If Liliuokalani had been put back on the throne she would not have been allowed to stay there long enough to warm it. I have been an ardent annexationinst ever since I set foot on those Islands, and T am still of that mind. The people of substance on the Islands, the peo ple that have the good of the Islands at heart, are unanimous for annexa tion. America is our natural market, and this country is preferred for an nexation above all others. America is recognized as the most progressive na tion, and there is also some sentiment as well as business in the desire to become annexed to the United States. 'I also look to see the laying of a cable- between the United States and Honolulu at the earliest possible mo ment after the war with Spain is over." SOAP AS APPLIED TO THE OCEAN. The North German Lloyd steamship Gera, which recently arrived in New Yok from Bremen, ran into a tempest in mid-ocean on January 7, and shipped the crest of many combers. Her com mander decided to try the efficacy of soft soap arid oil on the waters. It is, of course, tisual for storm-tossed ves sels to use oil in the quieting of trou bled waters, but the combination cf soft and oil is rare. It was run from the closet pipes on the weather side, about 6C feet abaft of the beam. Eight gallons of soft soap and four gallons of thick lubricating oil were used. The soft soap was dropped through one pipe and the oil through another near by. A heavy lather appeared on the sea, and the crests ceased breaking aboard. The storm moderated next day, and the Gera was able to make her usual win ter weather speed the rest of the trip. Deputy Marshal H. R. Hitchcock left for Molokai on the Mauna Loa yester day morning. This is the day for inspection of Companies E and F, N. G. H., by Min ister Cooper. Among the passengers on the Zea landia yesterday were Mrs. Kamaka noe and eleven other natives all bound for Salt Lake City to live in the com munity of the Mormons. I!--.I ut Ion c Ailjimni.
