A GURZON DINNER
NotaWe Farewell Parly at the
Hotel Cecil.
WAS AN EXCLUSIVE AFFAIR
The Viceroys Tribute to His Wife.
A Distinguished Company.
Friends Together.
LONDON. The farewell dinner to
Lord and Lady Curzon at Hotel Cecil
resembled a Continental or American
occasion rather than the customary
cold British banquet, by the extreme
warmth and intimacy of the proceed
ings, from which the press was rigor
ously excluded. The sixty-five hosts
were, without exception, close personal
friends. It was in fact a gathering of
a certain very distinguished set of
London society, all comparatively
young people of rank and talent, who
for years have constituted a social im-
penum in imperio. The room was de
corated with red, white and blue in
candescent lights. The hosts occupied
seven tables set star-wise, Lord Cur
zon at the head of one apex of the star
and Lady Curzon opposite him at the
other apex. Lord Curzon had on his
right the Duchess of Devonshire, next
to whom was Mr. Asquith; on the left
was the Duke of Portland, next to
whom sat Mrs. Henry "White. On
Lady Curzon's right sat Mr. A. J. Bal
four and the Duchess of Marlborough;
at her left, Lord Elcho and Mrs. As
quith. Lady Randolph Churchill sat
next to St. John Broderick, the new
Under Secretary of State for Foreign
Affairs. Mr. Henry White sat next to
the Duchess of Portland.
Lord Curzon, who never fails to rise
on such an occasion, made a charming
and intimate speech, full of good-
natured raillery. Among a score of
sparkling and touching remarks he
modestly remarked himself as lacking
all the proper qualities of a Viceroy,
but paid an affectionate tribute to "the
men with women's hearts and the wo
men with men's heads" who had been
his friends. He declared that it was
no occasion to speak of international
alliances, and would, therefore, only
say that for him forever the American
flag would be "all stars and no
stripes.
Whenever he mentioned his wife he
said "Mary and I," and concluded by
these words: "We petition you, we
conjure you, nay, we exercise our new
prerogative and we command you, to
come out and see us."
George Wyndham, a brilliant young
aristocrat, politician, and litterateur,
the newly-appointed Under Secretary
of State for War, recited five stanzas
of a'farewell poem he had written, the
colloquial and familiar character of
which indicated the note of the even
ing. One stanza contained a grace
ful allusion of Lady Curzon, address
ing her as:
The lady whom none of us knew
Eight years ago, but whom now,
thanks to you,
We thave all of us known and adored.
The final stanza of this affectionate
valedictory ran as follows:
So go in and win. "What's 'five years
but a lustre
To shine round a name, that already
shines bright,
Then come back and we'll greet you
and go such a buster,
As never was seen; no, not even to
night. Come back in five years with your
sheaves of new fame,
You'll find your new friends, and you'll
find them the same,
As now, when you gladden their
sight.
All the hosts attached their auto
graphs to a large menu card, and the
company was duly photographed by
flashlight. Lady Curzon drove straight
from the banquet to the Paddington
station to join the steamer Plymouth.
Lord Curzon meets her at Marseilles
a week hence. No Viceregal pair ever
left England with a more cordial, a
more socially brilliant, farewell.
Lord Curzon has exhibited hundreds
of eminent qualities, but never yet has
he had to occupy single-handed a posi
tion of such infinite responsibility and
to grapple with a multiplicity of such
difficult problems. Everybody, how
ever, pays tribute to his courageous
and modest attitude, and all who
know him express the utmost confid
ence that he will return in 1903 covered
with new laurels.

Trouble in Samoa.
When the Mariposa left Apia the
Supreme Court had heard the claims
of the native rivals for the vacant
throne and was to hand down a deci
sion in a few days. It is likely that
the Mataafa faction will make trouble
if Malietoa is chosen for the place. The
tension became so great down there
that the house of the Chief Justice
was guarded and he was by proclama

Why a "Jacky" Skipped From
Honolulu.
(Washington Star.)
Bluejackets attached to ships that
have departed from the United States
for Honolulu have often taken heavy
chances on getting into all kinds of
trouble, civil and military, by smug
gling opium to the Hawaiian Islands.
Bluejackets on American ships man
aged to get many a can of the poppy
into Honolulu by secreting the stuff
in ships' nooks and sending it ashore
by the bumboatmen upon making the
Hawaiian port. A second-rate bosun's
mate on one of the ships overdid this
business, however, a few years ago, by
taking on too much of the contraband
opium when his ship left San Fran
cisco. The bumboatmen were helping
him to get the cans of opium over the
side as rapidly as possible upon the
ship's arrival at Honolulu harbor, but
meanwhile the commanding officer got
wind from one of the opium-dealing
sailor's enemies of what was going on.
One afternoon, when the opium smug
gler was ashore, supervising the sale
of the cans he had got over the side,
the inspecting officer of the ship found
about thirty-five half-pound cans of
opium stowed away behind the sailor's
ditty bag in the wire lockers. The sail
or got wind of what awaited him upon
his return to the ship, and he didn't
return. Instead, he shipped on a Brit
ish vessel that was pulling out of Ho
nolulu on the same evening for Shang
hai, and, with a pocketful of profits
already made on his opium smuggling,
he was on his way to China before the
officers of his warship knew what had
become of him.
FROM A NEAR BY TOWN.
What They Say In Marlon la The
Same They Say Hero.
There is something novel in reading
incidents connected with the life of
people in the States. Even if these are
of the most trivial nature the fact that
the Yankee is now our brother makes
them interesting. When they give
vent to their feelings- on a question
that concerns us, the incidents are
doubly interesting. Take the opinion
on Doan's Backache Kidney Pills in
this neighborhood and compare it with
what follows from Marion, O.
This is only one example but it is
sufficient to prove the truth of the as
sertion. Mrs. W. R. Creasap, of No.
621 Silver street, Marion, O., says: "I
had trouble with my .kidneys of so ser
ious a nature that it became positively
necessary for me to have an examina
tion made of them by a physician. This
put my disease beyond a doubt that
it was anything but genuine kidney
disease. For about two years past
there seemed to be a sore spot in the
small of my back over the right kid
ney. It was so excessively bad that it
was sore to the touch and hurt me if
I leaned against anything accidentally.
I could not lie upon my back at night
on this account and I was compelled
to lie only on one side. It hurt me to
stoop over and raise up again and I
had pains up my hack and down Into
my limbs. My feet swelled consider
ably and my body also, and I had
ereat shortness of breath. All this
was relieved by using Doan's Back
ache Kidney Pills. I believe they are
all they claim to he. I shall recom
mend them to others personally when
ever an occasion presents itself."
Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are
sold for 50 cents per box, or six boxes
for $2.50, by all dealers, or will be
forwarded by mail to any addres3 on
receipt of price by the Hollister Drug
Co., Ltd., Honolulu, agents for the
Islands.
