A BEAUTY BOWER Mepito Hall BeitiM for the Queen's Birthday Ball. 'NEATH FLAGS AND FESTOONS British and Hawaiian Flags and Stars and Stripes A Notable Company in Attendance, The promises of a real function in the way of a ball in honor of the birthday of Queen Victoria were more than fulfilled. The dancing party at Independence Park pavilion last night was a beautiful affair. It was attend ed by the leading people of the town and was excellently managed. OJ course all the prominent members of the British community, headed by Mr. Kenny, were present. The American Minister was .there and so was Mr. Schaefer, dean of the consular corps. Officers from the U. S. Gunboat Ben-i nington were on the floor. The Presi dent and Mrs. Dole and Cabinet mem bers and ladies were given places of honor. . Music for dancing was artistic and tuneful and the floor was smooth. Hall illumination was a feature. Electric lamps and acetylene gas jets were used and there was a flood of light. The committee on decorations is certainly to be complimented. The dressing of the hall was to the end of a harmo nious color effect and the general scheme was decidedly clever and well worked out. First pendant were signal flags and banners. Then came fes toons of greens. On the walls were palms and ferns. The stage end of the hall had a large portrait of Queen Victoria between flags with the British lion rampant on the Scotch color back ground and the ' stars and stripes of the United States. The handsome pro file of the Queen was from the brush of Frank Davey. At the other end o1 the hall were the Bnush and Hawai ian flags and the crown and tha "V R" in red incandescents. There were British, Hawaiian and American flags on the walls. In the dining room three tables had been attractively; dressed under the direction of Mr. Krouse and the wall ornaments were greens. The whole place was pretty. The dance program was a long one and the floor was always crowded. Special numbers were the Highland Fling and the Highland Schottische. The supper provided was praised by all. Dancing continued co quite "a lata hour and all enjoyed the party. Be sides being a social triumph, the ball fund will have a residue that will made a neat addition to the funds of the British Benevolent Society. This was the organization that made the celebration such a marked success: Chairman W. J. Kenny, Esq., H. B. M.'s Acting Commissioner and Con-sul-General. Vice-Chairman Hon. A. S. Cleg- horn.

Majesty's Acting Commissioner and Consul The article will be handled exclusive ly by the Board of Health. Each cus tomer must have a license and will be registered, with the records open to the public. Senator Brown framed the act upon suggestions from Senator Baldwin and others. Marshal Brown expresses the opinion that in its opera tion the act will remove much of the profit now accruing to smugglers, as Chinese will register to get cheap opium and avoid arrest for unlicensed possession. DRIFTED 82 DAYS. Schooner Without a Compass Ar- rives From Tahiti. John Charles Riig, a young French man of Tahiti, arrived here from Ha waii yesterday on the Mauna Loa, with Walter M. Giffard. Riig has had the experience of a life time. In a little schooner he and his crew reach ed Hookena, eighty-two days from home. Forty-two days they were without water, excepting what rain could be caught in the sails. Riig is the son of the owner of the craft. The voyage was to be from Ta hit! to Pehnryn. A few hours out a terrific storm was encountered. The schooner was driven before the wind fnr hours. The comoass was lost. Riig and others deemed it best to sim ply go with wind and currents. They suffered considerably, but reached Ha waii without being compelled to re sort to any extreme measures. The schooner will be here tomorrow or the next day. It carries the British flag. Riig speaks only French. He was for tunate in meeting Mr. Giffard on the Mauna Loa and has been placed in communication with both the French and British representatives. THE LAST CHANCE.

DYNAMOS IN USE Success With Electric Power for PompE at f aianae. WATER CIVES INITIAL FORCE Cheap, Certain and Plentiful Is the Energy The Plant Other Sugar Estates Will Follow Example. Judging from developments within the past few months, it would seem that electricity is destined to be the chief power on the various sugar es ates throughout Hawaii. One of the neatest improvements imaginable was recently installed at Waianae plantation, on this Island. Already its success has been demon strated and it is also known that the plant, which cost in the neighborhood of $12,000, will pay for itself in a little more than a year's time. David Center, the popular manager of Waianae, is responsible for all this. While he was positive that the scheme was feasible, this was not the case with the owners of the plantation. However, they had the greatest con fidence in Mr. Center, and allowed him every latitude in making the experi ment. Mr. Center, with a force of workmen, went high up in the Waianae moun tains where they drove a tunnel for, a distance of 450 feet. A large volumd of water issued from this hole, which was carried in a flume for a distance! of nineteen hundred feet, to the sum mit of a lofty hill. Here the waten was turned into a large tank, at the bottom of which is connected a 12- inch pipe. This pipe leads down the steep Incline of the hill to the power house. The water has drop of 750 feet. being driven through a nozzle, two and one-half inches in diameter. At the present time a dynamo with a capacity of one hundred and fifty hnrsp nower is in operation. There Is still space for a similar dynamo, which will give a total capacity of 300 horse i 1 A power. The power is transmitteo from the dynamo house, along wires. to the pumping plant, three miles dis tant. It requires but 75 horse powTer to operate the pump. Only three per cent of the power is lost in the trans mission. The pump was a steam one. In mak ing the change the steam pistons and valves were removed. It was also necessary to change the fly wheel-to a rope pulley which is attached to a counter shaft that is driven by the electric motor. McCandless Brothers are now en gaged in boring more wells on Waia nae plantation. When they have ac complished this, Manager Center will put more land under cane cultivation. An electric plant was installed on Olowalu plantation last July. It has done effective service and up to date has not cost fifty cents for repairs. The plant has 100-horse power and Is managed by two Japanese, one at the mill and one at the pump. Proprietor August Dreier of Eleele plantation on Kauai, will introduce electricity on his place, not only for his pumps but for an electric railway (Continued on Page 2.)
