MUCH TRAVEL Extensive BcoMdp for tie Ds partiB Steamers. TO BE A RUSH THIS WEK Liners to and From the Coast Se veral of Them Some of the New Boats Coming".

The Garo'nne took her departure from the Oceanic whart at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The Government band (played the steamer off.

Nearly a half hundred people are ibooked for the Moana, and it begins, to look that there will be a mad scramble for accommodations, such as was experienced on the Coptic last week. Alex. Young and wife are the first on the list. They are returning to their home in Oakland. Mrs. Wagner, wife of contractor Wagner, is going to San Francisco for a three months visit.

OOOOOOOOOOOO OC OOOOOOOOOOOO o o o o o o o o o o o o. o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o PHILADELPHIA. Pa., Jan. lS.The Press has just concluded an investigation of the dismantled Workshop of John W. Keely, the motor man. The investigators Were assisted by Professor Herring, a consulting electrical engineer of wide experience; Professor Ar thur W. Goodspeed. assistant professor of physics of the University ? Pennsylvania; Professor Leightor Witmer. professor of experi mental psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, and Dr. M. S. Miller. In addition to these gentlemen Clarence B. Moore, son of Mrs. Bloomfield Moore, and Mr. Coleman Sellers, Jr., took part in the examination of the flooring on Tuesday afternoon, when the most important find of all was made. Every bit of flooring -was ripped up and every nook and cranny explored under the flooring and under the walls. The results show that communication between the upper and lower rooms of the fam ous laboratory was easy, and was apparently one of the conditions under which the experiments were carried on. In a nutshell, the dis covery of tubing under the floor of the main exhibition room and the brick partition wall between the exhibition rooms, in connec tion with the possible use of the great steel sphere as a reservoir for compressed air, or compressed gases, has convinced all the in vestigators that this was not only the possible but probable agency that moved the Keely motor. The tubing is of the kind calculated to stand high pressure, and the amount of it found and the position of the few pieces in place is held by the investigators to go a long way toward solving the sec rets of the famous laboratory. Coleman Sellers said today: "After seeing the tubing in place under the floor of the Keely laboratory, 1 am inclined to the opinion that the inventor employed compressed air in his experiments. The size of the bore of the tubes indicates that they were intended to carry high pressure. It is impossible to see the tubes under the floor and believe in the inventors sincerity. He could have had no honest object in creating them." O O o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o IS GOOD AS BEST OOOOOOOOOOOO OO OOOOOOOOOOOO will return to his home in Oakland after a'business trip to the Islands.

SKAGUAY The Traveled Mule That Shafter Rode is Now Here. EDITOR P. C. A. "Skaguay," a Government pack mule, is now in the city, a late airival on the U. S. Trans port Tacoma. This mule has traveled much, not all on foot either. He has traveled by rail, steamer, sailing ves sel and nearly every other way except ing stage coach and Pullman sleeper He was purchased at St. Louis, Mo., IT. S. A., and from there he was shinned I to Yellowstone Park, Montana, thence to Fort D. A. Russell, Wyoming, thence to Vancouver, Washington, thence to Seattle, Washington, thence to Skag uay, Alaska, thence to Dyea, Alaska, thence to Seattle, Wash., thence to St. Louis. Mo., thence to Tampa, Fla., tbence to Santiago, Cuba, thence to Montauk Point, N. Y., thence to Wash ington, D. C, thence to St. Louis, Mo., thence to San Francisco, thence to Ho nolulu, where he is now rusticating prior to his journey to Manila, P. I. He is a sturdy little fellow and can carry four hundred pounds with ease, and has been ridden by no less an il lustrious personage than Gen. Shafter himself, who weighs three hundred pounds. Skaguay munches Uncle Sam's hay with quiet dignity, and is not averse to visitors, but he draws the line at kissing. He is not that kind of a hero. "BURRO." Strong Tribute Island Coffee By Expert. IT IS STRICTLY HIGH-GRADE McCord-Brady Man Says It Will Hold Its Price Testimony of a Demonstrator. ! HAWAII IN MANILA. News Notes of Island Uoys With General Otis. These items of interest to the Ho nolulu boys in the Philippines were taken from the Manila Freedom, pub lished by the Utah battery: Mr. C. E. Smith who has served the cause so faithfully left by the Scandia for the Paradise of the Pacific. Mr. Smith will be seriously missed by us all and more especially those who are in the Hospital as he acted as guard ian angel to the sick. Harry Murray of the Xebraskas is rapidly recovering from the effect of malaria at the Brigade Hospital. Honolulu will be new to us on our return as late papers from there speak of a great many changes since annex ation. F. J. Perrine of the 4th cavalry has returned to his quarters after a six weeks sojourn at the Hospital where he was under treatment for malaria, the result being the loss of about 25 pounds of flesh. All for some poi. Later news is to the effect that Har ry Murray is entirely re-covered and is on dutv. Cogswell's Latest. Artist Cogswell prolonged his stay in Honolulu for ten days for the especial purpose of painting P. C. Jones. The result of the work cannot fail to sat isfy all who know the respected ka maaina. A remarkably true likeness has been produced. It was completed only yesterday. The style is Cogswell's very best and coloring and expression are perfect. It is said that the portrait will be placed in the business offices of C. Brewer & Co. Second Mate Arrested. There was trouble aboard the Wills scott yesterday. T. Liebenberg, the cook, used threatening language to ward Second Mate O'Neill, who re sented by knocking the man down. O'Neill Avas arrested on the charge of assault and battery. The case will come up for trial this morning. The row, in which frightful language vas used, was heard for quite a distance. V Heach Residence. Contractor Fred Harrison will begin work this week on the foundation of James B. Castle's new beach residence. The foundation will consist of dressed stone and concrete. The residence will be. a three-story structure -with a large lanai. President C. U Wight, of the Wild er Steamship Company, had a confer ence with Frank J. Hocl, secretary o McCord-Brady Company, the big coffeo wholesalers for the Trans-Mississippi States, on the future prices of Hawaii an coffee. Mr. Wight is of the opinion that prices will drop within the next two years. In a letter to L,and Commis sioner Brown, he said: "There Is a large over-production at present of itho low grades of coffee. Rio is selling for 6 cents, Santos for 7 cents, while Hawaiian coffees are worth, about 15 cents. In my opinion there is no over production of the high grade coffee, such as we raise here. I look, how ever, for a further drop in prices with in the next two years. After that I look for a ssharp advance. I firmly be lieve that our coffee will always aver age 15 cents per pound, year in. and year out." In his consultation with McCord Brady Company's representative, Mr. Wight took this same position. Mr. Hoel's views did not coincide with Mr. Wight's conclusions, he contending that the fall in prices would be cou fined entirely to the lower srade coi fees. Mr. Hoel says that in his opin-' ion, Hawaii can produce as fine a grade of coffee as grows in Java oMexico. The only drawback in Hawaii is that not all the coffees are properly pre pared for the rcurket.' The defective coffee that is shipped to the markets in the States, is obliged to wait for a buyer at a low price. Mr. Hoel "assert ed that if th Hawaiian planters would only exercise care in the picking, pulp ing, fermenting and drying of their coffees, they could rest assured that their coffees will command in the fu ture as good, if not better prices, than at the present time. The following letter from Miss Lu cile Borden, an expert demonstrator of coffees, who was employed by the Ha waiian Government as the chief dem onstrator of coffees in the Government exhibit at the Trans-Mississippi Expo sition at Omaha last summer, will bo interesting to the island coffee plant ers: Omaha, Neb., Oct. 24, 1898. Mr. Robt. W. Shingle, Hawaiian Com missioner, Omaha, Nebraska. Dear Sir: It is with pleasure that I state that although I have been tak ing orders for coffee from consumers, and demonstrating for the past fives or six years, during which time I havo demonstrated for some of the most popular brands of coffee, including high-priced Java and Mocha mixtures, I have never demonstrated a coffee that was as easy to introduce and take orders for as the iiigh grade Hawaiian coffee that has been served in connec tion with the Hawaiian Exhibit at Omaha during the past five months. The strength of the coffee is almost marvcMous when one stops to consider that one pound of Hawaiian coffee will produce as much (ground) Uuid coffee as one and two-thirds pounds of ground, high-priced Java and Mocha mixtures. Then again, the flavor and aroma of the coffee equals or surpas ses any coffee pioduced as far as i have been able to learn. The thought has occurred to me that the large coffee growers in Hawaii should know as to the specit-I merit of their coffee as compared with the coffee grown in oth er countries, as its great strength should add vory materially to its value ! in n ilrl iHrtn tr ifi rtViri fina nmlih'ps The high grade Hawaiian coffees should command a special value also for blending with coffees grown in (other countri-es. Should you desdre any additional statements regarding i the results of my work in demonstrat ing the coffees of which you have had charge, please inform me. Yours truly, LUCILE BORDEN, Chief Demonstrator. Reresford's Cnmin&. The British residents of Honolulu tire invited to attend a meeting to be held at the Arlington hotel tomorrow, Wednesday evening, for the purpose i of considering the advisability of pre senting an address of welcome and "bon voyage" to Lord Charles Beres ford, who is expected to touch at Ho nolulu on or about Friday next.
