Fine Showing of
Balance on the Right Side Despite
Sixty-Four Boarders Who
The delayed annual meeting of the
Sailors' Home Society was held Saturday !
morning at the Chamber of Commerce
rooms, and after the reading of reports
and discussing routine matters, the board
of trustees elected the following officers:
President, W. F. Allen; vice president,
John Ena; secretary, F. A. Schaefer;
treasurer, E. F. Bishop.
Trustees for the term ending Decem
ber 31, 1903, were re-elected as follows:
E. F. Bishop, J. B. Atherton, John Ena,
F. W. Damon, Captain Fuller and Henry
The principal report presented at the
meeting was that of Captain Isaiah
Bray, superintendent of the Sailors'
Home, which covers the period since
Apri! 15, 1900, when he assumed charge
of the institution, up to December 31,
1900. He stated that he first dismissed
all the permanent lodgers in the Home
and thoroughly renovated it and made it
cleanly and comfortable as a lodging
house for seafaring men. He states that
there was left in his hands by the for
mer management a niimber of unpaid
bills, but no new ones had been contract
ed during his regime. The new artesian
well sunk on the grounds of tiie Home
by the Hawaiian Electric Company will
make a saving of 25 a year to that in
stitution. The following extracts from Captain
Bray's report are interesting:
"The seafaring men do not like the dor
mitory scheme, but prefer rooms, and I
recommend that an addition of twenty
five rooms be made as a means of in
creasing the revenues.
"Incoming vessels are now visited by a
Home runner; a boat has been purchased
and by this means the vessels are easily
reached and the masters and sailors on
the ships are made acquainted with the
fact that Honolulu has an admirble in
stitution where seamen can find comfort
able quarters ashore. A regular ship
ping business is also conducted, although
it is not remunerative. A careful record
is maintained of all sailors entering the
Home, with their nationality, last ship,
capacity, ship joined, where bound and
date of sailing."
As to those who have assisted the in
stitution, Captain Bray makes mention
of the following: A. F. Cooke has assist
ed financially; T. Rain Walker paid wa
ter rates; Mr. Schultze furnished Ger
man reading matter; Mrs. Hyde, story
books; Miss Mary Parker, new Gospel
hymn books, and Miss Bray, a cabinet
organ. On Sunday evenings the sailors
present enjoy singing under the auspices
of the Y. M. C. A.
In the period specified in the report 371
seafaring men have availed themselves
of the advantages of the institution,
while transients added, run the number
up to 413. Financial losses to the amount
of $235.10 were had through the default
ing of sixty-four boarders who "forgot
to pay" before leaving. The number of
men shipped from the Home was 242. The
treasurer's report showed that there was
a balance of $766.57 remaining in his
hands. The gross receipts were $2,897.36,
gross expenditures $2,684.66, leaving a bal
ance In Captain Bray's hands of $214.70.
Many liberal subscriptions have been
made to the Sailor's Home, which have
assisted the institution materially.
The resignation of T. R. Walker from
the board was accepted and a vote of
thanks tendered him for the splendid ser
vices he has rendered for the Home in
past years. F. M. Swanzy was elected
in his place. The executive committee,
consisting of C. L. Wight, F. W. Damon
and W. W. Hall, was instructed to re
port upon the improvements suggested
by Captain Bray and others.
AT BUFFALO FAIR
Miss Davisou Will Sail To
morrow With the School
The Legislature has expressed its ap
proval of the desire of the local Gov
ernment to send a representative of the
Educational Department to Buffalo, by
putting through the bill calling for
$3,500 for the expenses thereof. The bill
which was introduced in the Senate by
Senator Carter, and in the House by
Representative Beckley. made quick
progress through its three readings in
ieach House. There was an almost
I unanimous vote on the measure. The
ionly opposition displayed in the Sen
ate was by one who expressed his disap
proval for personal reasons only. The
bill is now in the hands of Governor
,Dole for signature.
I Miss Rose Davison, assistant secre
tary of the Board of Education, who
will represent the department at the
I Pan-American Exposition, has been
working diligently for the past four or
'five davs getting her exhibit in shape
ifor transportation. The various big
'schools have been called upon to make
jup their displays, and many fine pieces
!of work will be exhibited which will
I surprise the American population which
I yet believes that Hawaii is a land of
! cannibals. Fine lace work from the
Kamehameha Girl-' School, specimens
'of manual work by the Boys' School,
will prove one of its features. The ex
hibit from Xawalahao Seminary will
!be a superior one. The freight will go
(forward tomorrow on the Sierra and
Miss Davison and assistants will leave
Ifor the Coast by the same steamer.
iThey will remain at the Exposition for
I the greater part of the summer. Be-

Entertained at Dinner.
WAILUKU, April 18. A most enjoy
able time was had at Kahului last Sun
day afternoon, when C. F. Siemsen enter
tained many of his friends at a grand
dinner. Wailuku's popular young folks
were present, and each one helped to
make trie affair a success. The Wailuku
Music Club furnished the music for the
occasion, and several orchestra selections
were artistically rendered, to the tune of
which many danced.
Mr. Siemsen personally provided his
guests with everything to make them
After dinner the guests amused them
ea with whatever was in sight; some
walked along the beach until they were
tired, while others sung to the accom
paniment of the guitar.
The Kahului club house is situated
ntar the sea beach, and gives a beauti
ful view of the harbor of Kahului.
A DOUBTING THOMAS.
Had His Falling Hair Stopped and
Dandruff Cured Without Faith.
H. B. Fletcher, Butte, Mont, Oct 20,
1899, says: "Like many other people,
I have been troubled for years with
dandruff and within the last few
months my hair came out so badly
that I was compelled to have what I
had left clipped very close. A friend
recommended Newbro's Herpicide. I
confess that I doubted his story, but I
gave Herpicide a trial; now my hair is
as thick as ever and entirely free from
dandruff." "Destroy the cause, you re
move the effect." At druggists, $1.00.
Herpicide is a delightful hair dressing
for regular use.
