The Exposition Commissioner and a Slgna Corps Memter Were Oil Associates. Mr. TJmsted, the commissioner here in the interest of Omaha's Colonial Exposition, when at home is manager for the Western Union Telegraph Com pany's octupus arm of the place. He performed such signal service in con nection with the great show of last year that he was given the assignment to Hawaii. Mr. TJmsted and some of his new friends were standing at the corner of Fort and King last evening when a soldier stopped and projected a neat hand at the commissioner, at the same time saying: "Glad to see you, Mr. TJmsted. Don't you remember me? I was one of your operators in Omaha. My name is Kyle." TJmsted was glad to see Kyle and explained that the sol dier was known as one of the swiftest and "best telegraph operators in the whole of the West. Kyle, a bright young fellow, is in the signal corps and with eleven other selected men, is aboard the Ohio. He was through the campaign in Cuba, worked on the fir ing line, was sent to Porto Rico, and then stationed at Washington. At the nation's capital Kyle went into a com petition, was placed first at receiving by the Morse code and stood well up in heliograph, wigwag, semaphore, con struction, ballooning and a few other affairs of the communication and infor mation 'branch. This resulted in the detail to Manila. Kyle says he comes along because he -wants to see all of the new country of his Uncle Samuel. The signal corps men of this lot are all prize winners and are fully equipped. For one thing they have seven suits of clothes each. Kyle is very much interested in wireless tel egraphy. Three weeks ago lie was busy all day every day assisting in the experiments being conducted at Fort Meyer, near Washington. He said the work, for short distances was satisfac tory, but he was doubtful about the system ever working for manv miles. Mr. TJmsted said the same thing. Street Car Strike. There was a small sized strike of some of the employes of the Hawai ian Tramways Co. yesterday. Seven of the car drivers presented themselves at the office and demanded an increase in wages. They had been getting twenty-five cents an hour-and wanted thirty cents. The management refused the demand and the men walked out. New hands were obtained to fill the va cant places and the wheels turned again. Also a Foot Hall Player. Among the officers of the "Fighting Thirteenth" which arrived by the Ohio yesterday is Lieut. Nolan. He was through the entire Cuban campaign and was mentioned by the correspon dents as having been conspicuous for his bravery. He also enjoys the dis tinc ion of being one of the best foot ball players in the United States hav ing been selected as end for the All American team of 1895. The Cabinet. At the Cabinet meeting yesterday the labor question came up. It was voted that a three months' quota should be given where a supply for six months had been asked for. The bond of C. B. Dwight, who has thrown up the Pali road contract, was declared forfeited. The Superintendent of Public Works will report on the amount due the contractor, and will complete the road by day labor. Regimental Encampment. The Officers Board, N. G. IL, met last evening at headquarters and discussed the proposed encampment. It was de cided that both battalions should go into camp at the same time. The re giment will leave on a special train at about 7 o'clock of the evening of Saturday, the 20th. They will return on the morning of the 22nd arriving here bv 5 o'clock. Police Com t.

The wounded man is the brother of Jas. F. Clay, deputy collector of customs of this port. He is a civil engineer. He passed through Honolulu when en route to Manila with the Montana regi ment. NEW BILL at ORPHEUM THE ATER tonight. A TOKEN GIVEN (Continut-il from Page One.) ior.r.iry in a black German text, of graceful and slender proportions, with illuminated XIV century initials. This part of the work alone, owing to the. length of rhe document, must have in volved a deal of patient industry. At the top of the first page appear two peacocks, conventially drawn in all their vain glorious pride of gor geous plumage, the peculiar iridescence of the breast and the ocelli or eye-like I spots of the tail-coverts being faith ( fully reproduced. The birds are .perched ju iup t guiuen xaoiei, upon wnica is emblazoned the full name of the honorable recipient, and are surround ed by accessories of a pink cloud effect and poppies. At the foot of the sec ond page, and forming the tail-piece, is a spirited drawing of the sharp sighted dragon, the imperial emblem of Cathay from time immemorial. The beautiful bordering of both of these pages is deserving of special mention, as being of a singular and unique description. All the details of the design are of a distinctly Chinese order and most appropriate to the oc casion, in which the dragon and lotus flower figure prominently. The chief characteristic of Chinese ornamental art is a fantastic and to a Caucasian's eye, somewhat incongruous mixture of dissimilar patterns and colors, but in this instance they have been arranged in so symmetrical a manner as to pro duce a very pleasing "tout ensemble." A background of leaf gold gives the whole an extremely .rich effect. In addition to the above there is a third and separate page for the signa tures. This bears at the head the coat-of-arms of the Judd family whereby, in parenthesis, hangs an interesting bit of history while at the foot appears the Chinese national flag, supported "by small shields with the American and Hawaiian colors respectively, and em bellished by scroll work in mediaeval style. Four quotations from the "Con fucian Analects" translated by Dr. Legge and couched in complimentary phrases, are ingeniously arranged around the margin, the lettering being an imitation of Chinese characters, done in gold upon a deep bronze-green bordering, which shows it off to great advantage. The sentences read as fol lows: "By his justice, all were de lighted;" "By his sincerity, he made people repose trust in him;" "By his earnest activity, his achievements were great," and "By his generosity, he won all." The memorial is mounted in a royal red morocco case, manufactured fcy the Hawaiian Gazette Co., and reflects credit on the bindery department of that firm. Upon the outside is stamped in gilt letters: A. F. J., February IS. 1S99, the iatter being the actual date of the anniversary. Throughout the work gives evidence of much thought, perseverance and conscientiousness, and it is to be hoped that the Chief Justice will give his permission to have it placed on exhi bition. 1819. 1899.
