AT OMAHA AGAIN
Greater American
ds Held this
Exposition io
Year. ;
REPRESENTATIVE NOW HERE
Exhibition of Products From the
New Possessions People Like
Hawaii Begins July 1st,
Henry F. Dailey, of Omaha, who; is
on his way to the Philippines in or.der
to gather exhibits for the proposed
Greater American Exposition, to " he
held in Omaha this year, is still in this
city. He will remain here until the
Puebla sails, as he intends to go direct
to Manila with the transport.
"I am no stronger to Honolulu, pu
know," said he yesterday to an Adver
tiser reporter. "Last year when the
war broke out I became patriotic and
enlisted. I was with the Nebraska reg
iment and we went to the Philippines.
Ever since we passed through here on
our way to Manila, 1 have had a warm
place in uiy heart for Honolulu.
"How about our proposed exposition
this year? Well, we intend to try and
make it bigger and better than the
one last year. If we succeed in doing
this we shall.be satisfied, as the one
just closed a few months ago came up
to the highest expectations of the pro
moters. . .' ',
"We intend to make itstrictly as rep
resented to.be, a Greater American Ex
position". -All . the new: possessions.
Cuba;' Porto' Rrco,': the PhilippinebCz.vi
Hawaii will be represented."
"The gentleman who will look out
for Hawaii's interests will arrive on
the next steamer. We are very anxious
to get a good exhibit from the Islands,
as the people are greatly interested in
the first born of the new possessions.
"Everything this year will, be con
ducted cn- a strictly business basis. We
will get the exhibits from the Islands,
give a guarantee for their safe-keeping,
and then ship them both ways at
our own expense. We consider it
enough for the exhibitor to do when he
allows us the privilege of using his
property.
"I think all the people of the Islands,
of Honolulu especially, agree that the
results of such an exhibition of re
sources is productive of good results.
This can- be seen by the beneficial re
sults of last year's exposition.
"From here I shall go direct to Ma
nila. There I desire to obtain a -thoroughly
representative exhibit of the
islands' resources and curiosities. I
am charmed with Honolulu and if it
were not for my contract I doubt if I
should get any further." S
Pleasant Surprise. r
The announcement of the engage
ment of Miss Clara Dekum, of Port
land, Oregon, to Mr. J. R. Myers, of
Lihue, Kauai, came as a very pleasant
surprise to the many friends of the lady
in Honolulu, even though some of them
were aware that Mr. Myers had lately
made a visit to Portland.
Miss Dekum will be welcomed back
to the Islands with open arms, wheth
er she comes as Miss Dekum or as Mrs.
Myers, as during her visit to her broth
er here last year, she endeared herself
to a large circle who were very sorry
to see her leave.

KIHEI WATER.
There was very little doing
in the stock market yesterday.
There were few transactions
and these were at a lower, fig
ure than the same stocks
reached a few days ago.
The most noticeable slump
was in Kihei, which dropped to
$10 premium, some sales being
made as low even as ?8 and $9
net. Owing to reports circulat
ed in regard to the water sup
ply people were anxious to get
rid of their stock at almost any
price.
. When J. B. Castle and J. P.
Cooke, of Alexander & Baldwin,
were seen in regard to the
water reports, they said: "We
have no desire at ail to boom
Kihei. It does not need that.
But in justice to the holders it
is only fair to state that all re
ports stating there is a lack of
water are "utterly unfounded.
"The water supply is develop
ing better even than was ex
pected. The flow is entirely sat
isfactory to the promoters, and
they are the ones most inter
ested." The report about the water
supply has been industriously
circulated. Saturday night the
Chinese holders of stock were
almost in a panic on. account of
the rumors. They offered the
stock at almost any price. The
same feeling pervaded the mar
ket yesterday, but those who
know most about the prospects
were not. affected by the rum
ors. 4-

THE ELEELE ROAD
Arransements About Completed for
New Electric Roafl.
HAS MANY ADVANTAGES
E. T. Dreler In Charge of the Pro;
ject All the Material Now on the
Ground To be Started Soon.
E. T. Dreier, son of Manager Dreier
of Eleele plantation, is in the city on
a business trip, having for Us object
further electrical improvements for
Eleele, of which he is the electricion.
Mr. Dreier spent some time in Ger
many perfecting his studies in this line
and the advanced work on the planta
tion has either been under his direct
supervision or the work of his hands,
while many of the best ideas are strict
13' his own.
The most notable work that has been
accomplished up to the present time
is the inauguration and completion of
the-first section of the new electric
plantation railway. This section is but
one quarter of a mile in length, hut
sufficiently long to practically demon
strate that the scheme was a complete
success.
The first car was run over the lime
last Friday afternoon with, Manager
Dreier in person handling the levers,
thus giving him the distinction of be
ing the first person to run an electric
car in Hawaii-.
The trial was a complete success and
the management .were more. . than
pleased at the result, for, no matter
how well satisfied they wrere as to the
correctness of the idea, there was
nothing like seeing the line in actual
operation to prove their theories.
With the dynamo showing but 350
vplts of 60 amperes the motor car was
run up and down a 4 per cant grade
without the least difficulty. The dy
namo has a capacity, however, of 550
volts of 90 amperes, which is more than
they anticipate needing, as 550 volts of
50 amperes s considered ample to haul
six 3-ton cars over 4 per cent grades,
which is as high as they are obliged
to go.
One of the strong points made in
favor of the electrical road for the plan
tations is the lessened liability of fire.
It is only a few days since a neighbor
ing plantation had a blaze started
from the plantation locomotive. The
blaze was instantly extinguished, to be
sure, and without its doing any dam
age, but it shows what might easily
happen on any of the plantations. This
danger is entirely obviated by the use
of the electric motor.
Another item worthy of mention and
one which will recommend itself to all
the economical managers is the cheap
ness of operation. In this particular
case the dynamo is operated directly
from the main engine in the mill and
this engine is fired entirely by the cane
refuse, thus practically disposing of the
expense of fuel. The only running ex
pense figured on is cost of motorman
and necessary repairs, and there ap
pears no reason why the last item
should not be very much less than with
a steam railway.
Mr. E. T. Dreier kept close watch of
all the construction work on the line
and personally did all of the real elec
trical work. He justly feels proud of
the showing made, to the success of
which he has so greatly contributed.
All of the material to complete two
miles of road is now on the ground and
the extension will be pushed to comple
tion without dela-.
The switch-board and dynamo came
from Chicago, the frame work of the
motor car from the Baldwin Locomo
tive Works and the motor proper from
Makes the food more delicious and wholesome
ROvAt BAKINO POWOF
the Wesiinghouse Co., the orders hav
ing been placed through the Hawaiian
Electric Co.
Mr. Dreier has other Improvements
of importance well under way. ono of
the most important of which is a
method of running the centrifugals by
electricity, thus doing away with all
the overhead belts. He has already
applied for letters patent on this idea,
which he expects to have in full oper
ation in a short time.
A demonstration of the success of
the electric plantation railroad, which
now seems fully assured at Eleele, will
have a tendency to revolutionize plan
tation methods of transportation.
Orpheum Improvements.
Mr. Desky ts sparing neither trou
ble or expense to maie the Orpheum
a first class family theatre. One of his
latest improvements, especially for the
convenience of its patrons, i a tele
phone in the box office. By calling up
540 any time after 10 a. m. one can
reserve seats which will , he held for
them until S o'clock on the evening;
of the performance. Matinee seats for
the children can be (reserved in the
same way.
ANNUAL MEETING.
Y. JSU C. A. Elects Officers for the
Ensuing Year.
Last evening the y. M. C. A. held its
annual meeting. There were about
twenty-five members present. The re
port of the treasurer, detailing the ex
penses of the Association, was read

were then elected for the ensuing year:
President Walter C. Weedon.
Vice President T. Clive Davies. !
Recording Secretary B. F. Beards
lee. '
Treasurer C. H. Atherton..
Directors C. If. . Cooke.,: T. Clive
Davies, A. B. Ward.
E. Benner was elected vice president,
but resigned in favor of Mr. Davies.
The reappointment of Mr. Coleman as
general secretary, made at the last
meeting of the board, was approved.
Applications for forty new members
were actedJupon. This brings the total
membership up to about 450. The work
of the year has been highly successful "
and encouraging. Next Monday night
the 30th anniversary of the founding
of the Y. M.'C. A. will be celebrated.
A NARROW ESCAPE.
Sailor of the Kinau Rescued from
Drowning by Policeman.
Keoki, a sailor belonging to the Ki
nau, was almost drowned Monday
morning. About l o ciock japt. lion.
of the police force, and Policeman
Chas. Kakalia were walking along the
waterfront, when they suddenly heard
a man crying for help. They rushed to
the spot aTl found that the cries came
from a man struggling in the water.
Quick as a flash Kakalia threw off
his coat and jumped into the water. He
seized the man just as he was going
down the last time. With .Capt. Holi's
assistance he dragged him up on the
wharf, from where he was taken, on
board the boat. Had it not been for
i
Ithe brave, prompt action of Kakalia,
Keoki wrould never have takent another
trip with the Kinau.
At the Orpheum.
There was a fair attendance at the
Orpheum last evening. The program,
was the same as Saturday night and
' was put on in good shape. The mem
bers of the company always do their
best whether the house is crowded or
not. Everybody who has xxt seen the.
attractions who are providing enter
tainment should do so. Tonight-ithe
same program will be presented, with
ia complece change tomorrow night.
Gazette (semi-weekly) will be Issued
as usual this morning for the out-going
island and foreign mails. Copies In
