A BEACH HOTEL
Revival of an -, Old Enterprise of
Peacoci & Co.
A CORPORATION IS FORMED
Main Building: and Groups of Cot
tages Resort with 1st Class
Modern Features.
A new first class hotel for Honolulu
is assured. It nvill be situated on the
premises now occupied by Special
Agent Sewall and adjoining property
at Waikiki. The promoters are Pea
cock & Co. The incorporation will be
capitalized at about $100,000, the etock
of which, it is understood, has all been
subscribed.
The (hotel will be run on a strictly
first class basis. There will not be
lacking a single one of the many mod
ern improvements which have trans
formed .hotels from taverns .- into
homes of luxury and ease. The xans
will be somewhat similar . to those
which were drawn when the hotel was
first proposed two years ago.
The mainystructure will occupy the
spot where rae residence of H. M. Sew
all is now. The present building Tvill
be enlarged and adapted to hotel
needs. On each side of this large and
spacious cottages will be grouped.
This plan meets the needs of a trop
ical climate far better than a single
large structure does.
The articles of incorporation will be
filed in the near future. The prelim
inary work will be begun at an ,;ry
date. The idea of having a first class hotel
on this site was first brought forward
by W. C. Peacock about two years ago.
The project -was talked up and the
plans were -drawn. But when it came
to getting a license the promoters and
the Government could not agree. The
proposition subsided for a time, only
to be taken up now in such a manner
as leaves no doubt but that it will be
carried through.
There is no more suitable site in
Honolulu for a hotel than Waikin-i.
The fine road affords a lovely drive,
and being in such close proximity to
the beach a magnificent opportunity
for bathing is afforded. One of the
features of .the proposed plans is an
elegant bath house on the beach. The
grounds will be extensive and well
laid out. The conduct of the hotel will
be along the lines of the best of the
great hotels and will prove anotner
illustration of the progress of Hono
lulu. Orpheum Theatre.
An entire change of programme will
be given tonight. Mr. Post will present
for the first time his new comedy en
titled "An Indian Outbreak."
Mr. Wm. Howard will entertain with
a new comedy act.
Miss Violet Dale, the clever acrobatic
dancer and comedienne, will present
something new.
Miss Myrtle Graham will sing new
coon and Italian songs.
Mr. Matt Keefe, the popular tenor,
will sing all new songs.
Mr. J. H. Du Bell will introduce
some new tricks in hi3 aerial perform
ance. Mr. Post and Miss Ashley appear in
a new comedy sketch.
A grand complimentary benefit will
be tendered Jas. Post Saturday night. A
special program will be presented.
A Bunk Needed.
Q. H. Berrey, of the Hawaiian Mer
cantile Agency, has recently returned
from Hilo, where he was for a fortnight
on business. Mr. Berrey regards Hilo
as a place writh excellent prospects. He
thinks the greatest need of the growing
town is a bank. There are others of
the same mind. The field has beon
looked over a number of times by local
men as well as visitors from the States.
The opinion generally has been that
it would take some time to place a
bank on a paying basis. However the
changed outlook has caused further
talk on the project and some men
from the Mainland have declared their
intention of giving Hilo a bank.
Castor Oil Refinery.
C. Koelling, who was at one time,
one of the principals in the Prjnce
ville Plantation Company, has' now es
tablished himself at Kaneohe, this Is
land, and is engaged in an entirely new
enterprise. Mr. Koelling has secured a
plant from the Honolulu Iron Works
and proposes to engage in the produc
tion of castor oil commercially. He
has erect3d the machinery and build
ing himself, having been occupied for
the past five months in the work. Mr.
Koelling is .confident that he will make
a success of the new business.
Regimental Drill.
There was a rarge turnout last even
ing at regimental drill. Colonel Jones
was in command of the regiment with
Majors Zeigler and Camara in com
mand of the battalions. The band was
in attendance and headed the anarch
to Makiki, where an exhibition drill
took place.
A TROLLEY SYSTEM.
The Upper Wire Will Likely be
Used Here.
Another meeting was held yester
day of the directors of the .Honolulu
Rapid Transit and Land Company.
It is said that it is now the same as
settled that the new company will give
the city a trolley system. All plans
for compressed air were dropped some
time ago, largely on account of the
report brought back by Manager Bal
lentyne. There was for "some time
con's i deration of underground wire
plants- and the new "ground contact
system" lately placed at Washington,
D. C. It is believed by the promoters
that after .all the trolley will be the
best.
The company's orders for track,
oVrer ami transmission plant snd cars
will isoon go torward. Iri the mean
time rights of way will be acquired and
a site for power house selected.
THE NEW PUBLIC SCHOOL.
The Princess Kaiulani school
in Palama opened yesterday
morning -with a full attendance.
The preparatory work of or
ganizing the classes and get
ting under way was , accom
plished. Today the regular
school work will go on.

A GREAT PLANT
Monster BnMinis for .the Hono
lulu Iron Work
KAKAAXO SITE IMPROVEMENTS
Extensive Additional Equipment Electric
Cranes Compressed Air Many
. New Tools.
The whole town was surprised and
pleased when it was published in this
paper several months ago that the Ho
nolulu Iron Works Company has ac
quired a large tract of land in the Ka
kaako district and would establish its
plant on tlhe new acreage. It was
then stated that the .business of the
concern had outgrown entirely the old
stand on. Queen street. A few weeks
ago the news was given that the Iron
Works Company was putting up a tem
porary building on the new site. This
structure is now finished and is occu
pied. Much material is taken to it
direct from ships. During the past six
months the ground in Kakaako has
been prepared for buildings.
The buildings for the new home of
the Iron Works will be of Iron and
steel and will come from Milliken
Bros., New York. This is the firm that
furnished the buildings for Oahu plan
tation and that has the contract for
Waianae plantation houses Shipment
is to be made to the Iron Works in
June. The Iron Works will have one
of the largest and most complete plants
to be found anywhere and will be cap
able of handling- about anything that
comes along. The company now builds
mills and boilers complete and has had
some important contracts for ship re
pairs. The new home and the new
equipment will greatly increase the
capacity and efficiency of the plant. and
will mean the employment of a still
larger force. Here is an incomplete
list of the -most important buildings
and equipment:
Boiler shop 300x85 feet.
Machine shop 300x90 feet.
Foundry 300x88 feet.
Blacksmith shop 110x48 feet
These and other single story build
ings of the plant will be between fifty
and sixty feet in height and for the
loads to be carried from the upper
works will ge of truss construction.
Pattern shops Two stories, 200 feet
front and 60 feet deep.
Suitable offices ind draughting
rooms.
Extensive dipping plant for .the ap
plication of tar or composition to water
pipe. -
Sheds for storage of general material.
Stores for material in constant use or
demand.
A tram system reaching every part
of the grounds.
Engine room, tool room and boiler
room 120x35 feet.
Sand house.
Coke house.
Coal sheds.
Two cupolas.
Brass furnaces.
A number of ten, fifteen and twenty
ton cranes, in addition to those already
in use in the present shops. Several
of these will be electrical traveling
cranes. In the .machine shop alone
there will be two traveling cranes and
one that will be stationary.
Drills and hammers with compressed
air as power.
The electric plant will be a large
one and will include beside the power,
the necessary lighting dynamos.
Mr. H. Hedemann, the superintendent
for the company, is now in the States
placing orders for additional equipment
for the new shops. Some of the tools

MOVAl BAKING
already ordered will require ten months
for building at the factory.
The whole plant is to be enclosed
by a high board fence. The new site
is but a short distance from the liar
bor channel. None of the gentlemen
connected with the company will say
anything about plans for a dry dock.
but it is believed that the company
will move in that direction so soon as
the arrangement of the harbor la set
tled by the United States.
At the Iron Works at p-esent there Is
the greatest activity. Tlhe concern Is
patronized extensively l' new and old
plantations and Is doing satisfactory
work.: The stock of the company was
recently Increased. , All the new shares
were taken by old holders.
A Trial of Rioters.
The trial of the seventeen Kahuku
rioters began in .uie Police Court yes
terday morning. A number of wit
nesses were examined. They testified,
in regard to tne beginning of the riot.
The case will probably be concluded,
by the end of the week.
