Gazette
When it was known positively that
wax between Spain and the United
States had broken out, the idea was
conceived here of furnishing a com
pany from Honolulu for service with
troops of the American Government.
It was planned to organize a company
of 100 men, with seventy per cent or
more of drilled marksmen. This com
mand was to be landed at San Fran
cisco without expense to the United
States and was there to be equipped,
mustered in and detailed to duty where
there was action.
First was the money consideration.
Not more than half a dozen men who
are rather well known had been told
of the scheme when "all that might be
needed for expenses" was guaranteed.
Next there were hasty confidential in
terviews with men supposed to have
appetite for the enterprise. A promis
ing nucleus for a strong company was
pledged. At this stage the plan was
presented to a resident who was
known to be able to have prompt com
munication with the highest authori
ties at Washington. This gentleman
was enthusiastic, at once volunteering
to do all in his power to assist the
project along. His dispatches went
forward by the S. S. City of Peking,
which left here the night of April 30.
The telegrams were plain and urgent.
While waiting for answer from the
United States, those who had started
the movement kept on securing men
until there were more than 140 on the
list. The "A B C" advertisement in
this paper brought quite a number of
replies, but most of the business was
done quietly by personal selection.
The most important understanding
perhaps wras that each man would be
required to pass a physical examina
tion before departing these shores.
Replies to the April 30 telegrams
came by the Gaelic. They were of a
disappointing and discouraging nature,
as follows:
"Secretary of War regrets that offer
one hundred Americans of Honolulu
cannot be accepted. Only quota fur
nished by Governors received." (Sign
ed) Schwan, Asst. Adjt.-General.
"War and Navy (Departments) have
no use for more men at San Fran
cisco." (Signed) J. B. Moore, Asst.
Secy.
Despite these dispatches, four ex-
regulars of the N. G. H. and a dozen or
more civilians who had wanted to go
with the Honolulu expedition, went on
to the Coast by the Zealandia with the
purpose of enlisting at San Francisco.
The ex-regulars are Dunn, Scott, Schu-
ley and Fitzgerald.
It is figured that the United States
will not at any time during this war
need more than say 250,000 men. Ac
cording to Zealandia advices the num
ber in the country ready to enlist is
not less than 700,000. Jas. Kejley, of
the Customs, is proud of the fact that
at his old home in Ohio, men are offer
ing a bonus for the purpose of getting
a chance to go to 'the front. The pa
pers have it that it is nearly that way
everywhere.
The Honolulu men who were in this
enterprise are glad they have shown
their aloha to the United States and
are much obliged indeed to the gentle
man who took their case to Washing
ton and to the men of means here who
stood ready to furnish the cash.
his lifetime. He was once a wander
ing musician. With all this the man
was of a peculiar, child-like disposi
tion and of an innocent character.
Sometimes he was brimming over with
fun and again would seem despondent.
While in Honolulu he was with the
Daily Hawaiian. He is remembered
lovingly by many residents. W. Horace
Wright of the Independent and Mr.
Nesfield were close friends of many
years standing on the Coast.
Many old soldiers now feel the ef
fects of the hard service they endured
during the war. Mr. Geo. S. Anderson,
of Rossville, York county, Penn., who
saw the hardest kind of service at the
front, is now frequently troubled with
rheumatism. "I had a severe attack
lately," he says, "and procured a bottle
of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It did
so much good that I would like to
know what you would charge me for
one dozen bottles." Mr. Anderson
wanted it both for his own use and to
supply it to his friends and neighbors,
as every family should have a bottle
of it in their home, not only for rheu
matism, but lame back, spains, swell
ings, cuts, bruises and burns, for
wiicn it is unequaled. For sa!e bv all

D. W. C. "NESFIELD.
Death of a Former Newspaper
Man of This City.
David W. C. Nesfield, who has been
dentified for more than a quarter of a
century with journalistic work in Cali
fornia, died at Fresno on the 7th inst.,
says the Examiner of the 10th. De
ceased was a son of William Andrews
Nesfield, the famous water-color artist
of England of whom Ruskin speaks in
'Modern Painters." He was educated
at Eton and entered the Civil Service.
After receieving his diploma he went
to the continent and devoted himself
to the study of languages, spending
much of his time in Germany and
taly. He was an accomplished musi
cian, lie came nere eariy ana wrote
considerably for both the daily and
weekly press of this city, and was for a
ong time editorial writer for the Alta-
California when that paper was under
the direction of Frederick McCrollish.
He leaves a widow and three daugh
ters. He was 54 years old.
Mr. Nesfiled was in Honolulu at the
same time as Dan O'Connell. Mr. Nes
field was for years the "Town Crier"
man of the San Francisco News Letter
and was subsequently a writer for the
Post. He was at various times organ
ist for leading Roman Catholic
Churches of San Francisco and Oak
land. In 1ST5 he was a writer for the
Los Angeles Times and in those early
days was prominent with the firemen.
Mr. Nesfield composed several of the
most popular Moodey and Sankey
hymns. He was a clever versifier and
excellent at prose sketching. He was a
linguist and an artist. David Nesfield
experienced many "ups and downs" in
