'Phone Blue 187L M ES TRIP OVER LINE Rapid Transit Car Carries Many Visitors. was made the cars would be regularly rue. He said: "The building- of the roadbed was in the hands of Mr. Am v. eg, who is not with the company any more, his services having been dis pensed with, and under him in charge of the construction have been Engineer J. B. Rohrer and Messrs. Johnson and Grery. The electrical and steam work was done by Mr. James A. Barkley. The cars were set up by us here. Al together the work is very satisfactory." 111.1111 ENGINEERING SENT THROUGH TO PUNAHOU Everything Moves With Smooth ness During the Journey Yesterday. With some degree of formality the car which has been traversing the line of the Rapid Transit road between the car-house and the end of the line, was sent through to Alexander street yes terday. It was a perfect trial of the line, the trip being made in good time and without stop, except when the uninitiated horse of the country would not stand for the horseless car. The trip was made starting from the power-house at 3 o'clock. The engines had been speeded to their full load for several days, so that there was no hitch in their performance. The elec tricity was generated by one of the dynamos, the other being run for a short time only for the purpose of smoothing the bearings. There was no necessity for high power, so there was no test of the engines proper, or of boilers. What was done, however, was sufficient t show that the work of the engineer in charge of the mechanical end of the plant had been done with thoroughness and efficiency, and that whatever the result, there was no fear of other than good effects there. Once the car was out on the road the character of the outside engineering, as shown in the Quality of the bed of the line, was in evidence. There was no jar in the running of the cars and the curves and the character of the bed were fitting tribute to the character of the woftc done. From the start to the finish there was nothing of jarring on the line; the car moved with smooth ness which characterizes the running of the highest-class trains on the great roads of the country. For a new line there was nothing more to be wished in this regard. Once under way the car was run from the starting point on Alapai street through to Alexander street, without making any halt for passen gers, though there were two or three times that unruly horses, ones which had not been educated up to rapidity in transit, as Manager Ballentyne put it, tried to jump through their harness, when there was passing something which moved with greater rapidity than they could attain. The people along the roa turned out in force to see the car and there was a great treat given to those who wished to see speed, for on two or three occasions the speed was made as great as will be accom plished when the line is in complete operation. When this was done the cars ran as perfectly as when the run ning was on the slower time, which was the general rule, the object of the trip being rather to show the road than to demonstrate that fast time ' could be made. The visitors who came as the invited guests of the company to take the trip included Superintendent of PuhHc Works J. H. Boyd, Assistant Superin tendent Marston Campbell, ('.. S. Desky and several others, while out of cour tesy Mr. Ballentyne asked some of th school teachers who had arrived on the Thomas to take the trip, as the quick est way to see the city. The delight of each was unbounded, as they realized that the opening of the line made it possible to reach what are now outly ing portions of the city in quick time. In spite of the stops the through run to Alexander street was made In elev en minutes, while the return- was In a little less time. The run from Puna hou street has been made in eight min utes, showing what will be done when the line is in perfect operation. Mr. Boyd was pleased with the run ning of the car. and said that he thought that the road was ail that might be desired. His assistant, who has lived in cities vner there are many such lines, gave his favorable opinion of the construction of the line, both from the civil and mechanical en gineering standpoint, as he has seen the work done. Others of the impary which made the trip were generally pleased with the working of the road. Manager Ballentyne handled the sig nal cord and ran the car in fine shape from one end of the line to the other, ever vigilant as to the needs of the line and of the safety of the people and the car, though he knew that everything was in shape for the successful opera tion of the -trial car. It has been his special supervision that has made the line of the high class of construction that prevails. Once the trip was concluded there were found to be waiting at the down town end of the line several member. of the Legislature who had missed th? first trip and they were given a ride over the road. Among those who were In the party were Senators Kalauoka lfni and White.' Speaker Akina and Mr. Kfkaula and others, and they enjoyed th experience as greatly as those who trade the first trip. Manager Ballentyne told an Adver tiser reporter that he was well pleased vHh the road and that as soon as the connection at the end of Hotel street THE GREATEST OF RICHES. Not lands, houses, farms, stocks or bonds, but Health. Many a millionaire would give his millions to eat with the appetite, and sleep with the peace en joyed by the Indian. Tet it dges not need millions to be the equal of the Indian in health. The secret of his health and strength is ours. That won derful Indian remedy. Sagwa. contains in itself the secret of the long and healthy life of the Indian. It is In some respects the most wonderful medicine known, because it is doubtful if any improvement in it is possible. It is the product of centuries of experiment. As it stands now, in the perfect bal ance of its life-giving ingredients, in their careful selection and their skill ful combination, there is nothing left to improve. The pharmacopoeia of Na ture has been exhausted. The Indian shut out from all outside help was obliged to wrest from Nature the se crets of her healing herbs. Slowly, very slowly through the long centuries he gleaned his knowledge and perfect ed it. Those centuries of slow results are represented today by the perfected compound Sagwa. There is no othtr remedy that has so many and so won derful cures to its credit. It is purely vegetable. It is Nature's own remedy, as used by Nature's own children. It purifies the blood, strengthens the stomach, assists the kidneys in then functions, regulates the liver, and makes the whole man sound and strong. It is unique among medicines, both for its simplicity and for the thoroughness of its cures. It cures ail over and it cures to stav. HOBRON DRUG COMPANY, agents for Kikapoo Medicines..

HONOLULU Brewing and Malting Compn'y,Ll SAN FRANCISCO. July 23. Con gressman W. L. Stark of Nebraska says that careful investigation of the opera tion of Marconi's system of wireless tel egraphy among the Islands of Hawaii has convinced him trlat it is the dutv of Congress to provide the system for use between the Farallone Islands and San J Francisco as soon as possible, as the , system is a practical success. "I have just come up from the Ha waiian Islands," said Congressman Stark yesterday at the St. Denis Hotel. "I carefully Investigated the Marconi sys- 1 tern in its actual, daily use. It has ' proved so much of a success among the Islands that the people rely upon it just j as mucn as tney would upon a came. Neither fog, wind nor rain interferes with the sending and receipt of mes sages. News of importance is continu ally being transmitted from one island to another. If you are not on the coast or are distant from the stations of the wireless telegraphy, you can start via the I telephone the message that you wish to i send. It will be transmitted from shore to shore and repealed by telephone and wireless telegraphy from island to isl and until it arrives at its destination. "Now from Hawaii to Maui the dis tance, by water is thirty miles, so that the demonstration is complete of the practicability of the use of the system for all purposes between the Farallone Islands and San Francisco, for the ex panse of water to be crossed is the same in both instances. That fact alone is sufficient to determine that the system would be a success for San Francisco. "My attention was most forcibly at tracted to the matter on the second day that I was in Hilo. On a bulletin board was the announcement of the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in the insular cases. The mes sage had been received from Honolulu by the wireless system of telegraphy. "I do not approve of appropriating money for anything purely experimental In many instances, but where the value of an invention to commerce has been completely demonstrated there is no ex- ! cuse for the Government if it fails to j give the public facilities that are within I easy reach. You see that the baby terri- i tory has already something to teach in! this direction. Put me down as an ear- i nest advocate of wireless telegraphy for i use between the Farallones anu San Francisco." age: HOME PRODUCTION Remember ! We do not have to fortify our Beer.

HOTEL STREET CURE FOR CHOLERA TUM. INFAN- ' Last May." says Mrs. Curtis Baker, of Bookwalter, Ohio, "an infant child of our neighbor's was suffering from cholera infantum. The doctor had giv en up all hopes of recovery. I took a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy to the house, telling them I felt sure It would do good if used according to directions. In two days' time the child had fully re covered, and is now (nearly a year since) a vigorous, healthy girl. I have recommended this, remedy frequently, and have never known it to fail In any single instance." For sale by Benson. Smith & Co., Ltd., wholesale agents. aver lunch aoo H. J. NOLTE. Proprietor.
