Frank J. Hoel, secretary of the Mc-Cord-Brady Company, wholesale groc ers of Omaha, Nebraska, and also oper ating connecting houses in several of the other principal cities of the trans Mississippi territory, is in Hawaii on an errand that has considerable to lo with the marketing of Hawaiian cof fees in the future. Mr. Hoel has come with an offer for the purchase of all the high grade Ha waiian coffees, and calls for the crops that are to come in the next several years. He was in consultation with H. Hackfehl & Company on Monday and left on Tuesday's steamer for Hawaii, to look over the coffee districts on that island. He will be shown attention by Mr. George S. Rodiek, of Hilo. The big house which Mr. Hoel rep resents is prepared to work in the market, throughout the States, but more particularly in the Trans-Mississippi section, with the island staple. Their interest was first secured by Ha waiian Commissioner Robert AV. Shingle, at the Omaha Exposition. Ha waiian coffee was served free to the public at the Government booth, and of the thousands of people who tried it there, hundreds left orders for the roasted coffee to be sent to their homes. The people leaving these ord ers lived in all parts of America, from Bath, Me., to Galveston, Texas. When the Hawaiian article was awarded the gold medal by the Expo sition authorities, Commissioner Shingle succeeded in getting the Mc-Cord-Brady Company to assume the orders and agree to fill them. As a re sult several carloads of Hawaiian cof fee have already been purchased, roasted and sent out. The McCord-Brady Company has placed the coffee in tin cans, enclosed in a wrapper which guarantees the "Stone Idol Chop" brand of Hawaiian coffee. There as also printed on this wrapper a cut of the diploma award ing the gold medal to Hawaii for her coffee. The subscribers are supplied through their retail dealer. Thus the whole salers are creating a demand among the retailers for Hawaii's product through the orders given by the consumer. Hawaii won first place at Omaha for her coffee, only after a hard fight, says Commissioner Shingle. The first jury cmpanr.elled consisted of Mr. Peck, of New York; Mr. Brown, manager of Doane & Company, of Chicago, and Mr. Nicholson, of Omaha, all coffee experts. Their verdict was for Hawaii, and cre ated considerable surprise among the Exposition authorities, who had not heard much of Hawaiian coffee. It was not until a second jury, whose person nel included food experts of Uncle Sam's army, had sustained the returns of the first jury, that the authorities consented to make the award. Henry Hcbbard's Mother. News was received yesterday of the death on the Coast on the Tth inst. of Mrs. Charlotte Bacon Hebbard. mother of Judge Hebbard of San Fran cisco and of Henry F. Hebbard, for merly an official of the Government here. The Chronicle says that Mrs. Hebbard was widely known as an edu cator and had visited Cuba, Canada and these Islands. Btirilar Caught. Officer C. Wills, one of the most cap able and watchful of the native foot police, captured a jewelry house bur glar last evening. Wills was directed to Biart's establishment on Fort, near King and found inside, under the counter a Chinaman. The intruder was made prisoner and taken to the station. Nothing was lost from the store. En trance was made by breaking in the back door. (icttin feerious. The Australia brought fifty-six cabin passengers to the city. All are tourists or newcomers save six. The hotel ac commodations were all taken. The Doric is due on the 24th. Every stateroom on her was taken previous to the -departure of the Australia.

SAX FRANCISCO, Jan. 11. It is not yet known whether Gen. Miller has dis embarked the troops under his com mand at lloilo or its vicinity or wheth er they have been kept on the trans ports in the hope that by delay an armed conflict between the Americans and the Filipinos may be avoided. Ag- uinaldo's attitude has been so defiant that President McKLnley is convinced that he is being encouraged by some foreign power to resist the demands of the United States. There has been more or less suspicion of this nature ever since Aguinaldo commenced to show his contempt for the authority or' this government, but it is now said that the Administration is in posses sion of information definite enough to indicate that the Filipino dictator is receiving substantial assistance from some nation unfriendly to the estab lishment of American rule in the is lands. Everybody in Washington is credited with having a pretty good idea as to which nation is meant, but the officials are silent as to their opinions on this delicate subject. Perhaps it was on this account that Gen. Otis con sented to appoint as delegates to meet delegates of the Filipinos, Gen. Hughes, Col. Smith and Judge Advo cate Crowder, who met with Gen. Flores, Col. Aquiles and Senor Torres at Manila on Tuesday, when a discus sion took place as to the policies, aims and desires of the people of the United States and of the Philippines. Whether or not any basis of accord was at tained is not stated. A MANIFESTO. Soon after the issuance by Gen. Otis of President McKinley's proclamation to the inhabitants of the Philippines the walls of Manila were placarded with a manifesto from Aguinaldo, in which he denied the right of the Amer ican commander to sign himself mili tary governor of the Philippines, de clared that he had never agreed to recognize the sovereignty of the United States, but, on the contrary, the Amer ican authorities had recognized the Filipinos as belligerents and in es pecial Gen. Merritt in a proclamation had stated clearly and definitely that the American forces had gone to the islands to overthrow the Spanish Gov ernment and liberate the natives. In conclusion the revolutionary leader called upon his followers to work to gether for absolute independence. Meanwhile his government at home and his representatives abroad, both in Washington and in some of the Euro pean capitals, have been protesting that they do not recognize American authority in the Philippines and have been acting as an independent govern ment. The gunboats Solace, Princeton and Yorktown have been ordered to Absolutely Makes the food more delicious and wholesome POvAt PAKINQ POWCEP Manila, the latter going via Honolulu, and it has boon suggested that Dewey should be further strengthened by the dispatch of the. Detroit, Marblehead and Montgomery, all of light draught and capable of ascending the rivers of the islands. The complications In tho Philippines come at an unfortunata time for the expansionists as they en courage the opponents of the adminis tration. Thus in the Senate yesterday Senator Mason was warmly, applauded from the galleries when lie made a strong plea for the independence o the Filipinos. DREYFUS. There has been another coup de the ater inn the Dreyfus case, in a modi fied way a counterpart of the suicide of Col. Henry. Guernay de Heaurepoiro has resigned the presidency of the civiL section of the court of cassation, in a long document protesting against what he suggests is a conspiracy to exoner ate the prisoner of Devil's island. Ho asserts that Judge Ixew. who is at tho head of the criminal department which. has the Dreyfus revision under consid eration, chose M. Hard as official re lKrter, although seven other barristers had superior claims, simply for the rea son that he was a friend of Picquart and a notorious Dreyfusard. SHARKEY WINS. Tom Sharkey, the man who was once a United States eailor, and who is now one of tho leading pugilists of tho world, defeated Kid McCoy, the young; Indiana boy, in the tenth round at tho Lennox Athletic Club, New York, last night. The end came unexpectedly and was the result of persistent work on the part of Sharkey, who finally land ed a left punch on the jaw which put McCoy on the fioor for ten seconds, the time limit. Sharkey won $15,000 In purse money and $5,000 in bets mado by himself and friends, together wltih. the right to challenge Fitzsimmons for the heavyweight championship of tho world. The fight was a mowt sensa tional one. It was witnessed by nearly 7,000 persons. McKINLEY MAY COME. The people of Honolulu may havo the honor of a visit from President Mc Kinley. During his recent visit to Washington HugTi Craig, late presi dent of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, dined at the White House, and reports that on that occasion Pres ident McKinley promised to come to the Pacific coast when the Hawaiian cable should be laid, adding that he In tended going to the Hawaiian Islands to inspect them. PACIFIC CABLE. The Lodge bill was introduced in tho Senate on Saturday. It authorizes tho Postmaster General to make a contract with the Pacific Cable Company for building a cable line from San Fran cisco to Honolulu, Japan and the Phil ippine islands, with a bonus of $125,000 a year. An attempt will bo made to amend the measure so as to provide that all of the cable for this line shall be of American manufacture. The mat ter came up the same day before the House Committee on Commerce. It was stated that Scrymser had practical ly made a contract for the cable with, English makers, and Representative Barham of California insisted that there must be no limit to the policy of protection, and if American cable man ufacturers had the capacity to produce good cable they should be afforded the opportunity. Speaking of the action of Secretary Hay in disapproving of the so-called Scrymser concession Edmund L. Baylies, vice president of the Pa cific Cable Company, expressed the opinion to a New York paper that this disapproval would probably not delay the laying of the cable in the slightest degree. CASTLE IN STORM. The barkentine S. G. Wilder reached this port on December 20, but the bark entine S. N. Castle, which left Hono lulu in her company, only arrived at San P'rancisco on Monday, the Oth inst., having been caught in a west southwest hurricane and for twelve hours thrown on her beam ends. For that length of time the starboard rail was under water and thirty-nine bar rels of molasses were washed over board. Fortunately, the Castle's sugar cargo did not shift, and the vessel bears no marks of her rough voyage. COL. BARBER. The name of Col. Thomas If. Barber of the First New York Volunteers has been Kent in by the President to the Senate for promotion to the rank of brigadier general. Among other nom inations are Charlemagne Tower, now minister to Austro-Hungary, to be Am bassador to Russia, and Addison C. (Continued on Pai?e Two.) "Puke CO., HEW YORK.
