Rebuilding Talk. ; MAUI, Oct. 17. On the owning of the 15th, Mauuaolu Seminary, one of the most famous ami oldest schools for Hawaiian girls in the Islands was completely destroyed by lire. The blaze began in the attic of the main building and at 0 p. ni., the llams on the burning roof lit Haleakala's slope for miles around. Hundreds of people of all nationali ties hurried to the scene of the fire, but as there was no water, nothing could be done except to save the fur niture, etc., from the lower stories. The iano, safe, parlor and dining room fur niture were rescued, but all tho teach ers excepting one lost all the clothing in their rooms most of them being without hats. The seventy girls were equally unfortunate for their extra gar ments were stored in trunks in the at tic where the lire originated. No one can explain the cause of the burning. At 2 p. m. of the same day, girls had visited the attic to obtain clothing but under the charge of a teacher. From that time until the dis covery of the fire, the large room had been locked. Various conjectures have been made spontaneous combustion from old mattresses tinder the roof, rats which were numerous on the premises carrying matches, etc. No verified explanation can be given of the fire which burned fiercely for an hour and a half, and destroyed at least $10,000 worth of property. The houses were insured for $5,000, which will form a good nucleus with which to re build an institution which has accom plished for many years much and great good for tho native people of Hawaii nci. The teachers in charge of the girls should be complimented upon the fact that not one of the girls were injured even slightly. The teachers and the girls whose parents did not come for them spent the night in the old native (Pookela) church. The ladies of Makawao will be busy during the week in making garments for the girls made destitute by the fire. The trustees of the Seminary will hold a meeting this morning to deter mine what shall be done as to rebuild ing. It is to be hoped that a building will bo constructed suitable of course for the place and purpose, but possess ing some of the modern ideas of or nate architecture. The teachers and some of the pupils will soon remove from Haleakala Ranch where they are at present to Mrs. II. G. Alexander's resul"n'e. awaiting re-establishment. Soda Stands to Co. Colonel Barber has ordered all of the refreshment stands out. of the roadway at Camp McKinley. T.vo white men and a native will have to move. The Helm Iwys and G.

A one-story woo. leu addition to No. 1 tire premises is bving built on Mer chant stree: near Union Square. It will be used as a store room for hook and ladder appliances and as a shop for re pairing engines, wagons, etc. John Ouderkirk is putting up the house. The structure is about feet ou:?i' o: the fire limits. A Kcstaur.int Kow. There was a row among the China men in the Dewey restaurant last ni.li:. A cook who had stepped in for suppor became impatient and walked into the kitchen to prepare his own meal. Immediately there was a storm. Mr. "Dowry" and all tho Chinamen in tho shop took a hand. The police arrived jut after the racket. No ar rests were made. Kin Will (. General King's orders by the Gaelic do not chance the original program.

Like former occasions of the same sort It proved a most enjoy able affair for all present. The Prin cess, was assisted, in receiving her guests by her father Gov. Cleghorn. A native orchestra played and sang un der tho largo banyan tree In front of the residence. Refreshments were served In the la nal which "was tastefully decorated for tho occasion. Gen. King, Col.

Hanna who has lately arrived hero from Guatemala via Los Angeles, his homo, brought with him some very interesting photographs of scenes view ed during his travels in that country and in other portions of Central Am erica. Views were taken tif the church tf Corro del Carmen, tho oldest church in Guatemala, of tho Interior of Santa Domingo, of tho barracks, tho volcano and snap shots of street ami homo life iu the city. One of tho most gruesome sights ever photographed is the crypt of a church whore mummies In funeral cloths are placed erect against the wall. Tho bodies wore not embalmed as tho ancient Fgyptians knew the art. but the Mesh Is simply dried by the sun. There are pictures of ancient monu ments covered with Inscriptions which have never yet been deciphered. Those monuments bear a certain resemblance to tho totem posts of Alaska. Hull fights are now prohibited by law in Central America but Mr. Hanna managed to see two of them while lie was in the country. One of these was between a man and a bull and tho other lctween a bull and n lion. Tho photographs are taken at close range and show the progress of tho fight at different stages, giving the effect of tho biograph. One of this sot shows the interesting faces of the crowd watching tho contest Some la dies are noticed among the spectators. While Mr. Hanna does not specially seek morbid si-ones ho has contrived to get one which for simple horror surpasses anything yet observed -hero. It is an execution of a soldier who shot an officer for insulting his (the sol dier's) wife. The first view shows the crowd of several thousand people wh' have assembled to witness the execu tion. The second Is of the prisoner seated upon tho b; noli with tho priest administering tho latt rites. The third shows tho guard firing upon the pris- w . 9 t .tt - oner, l no iour'.n pictures me victim lying dead whore ho had fallen.

"Ily this we protest against the memorial of the Women's Patriotic le ague of Honolulu, for good reasons: "'I. That the Women's Central Patriotic league of Honolulu did not invite the branch leagues of the Wo men throughout the Islands to join and consult together with them upon their memorial, and have it passed by a una nimous vote. " Their pretending to merge all tho other branch leagues throughout the Islands, not in agreement with their purposes. Is a fraud; " 1.
