Pair of Omaha Men Meet
On a Honolulu Corner.
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.

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.
British Residents are invited to as
semble at the rooms of the Waverley
