In honor of the birthday of Margheri
ta, the Queen Dowager of Italy, widow
of the late King Humbert, the Italian
cruiser Elba yesterday afternoon was
decorated from bow to stern with flags
and bunting. The entire ship wore a
festive appearance, which was enhanc
ed bv music and a reconfirm tn Honn-N
Owing to the cruiser being moored at
the naval dock, no salute was fired dur
ing the day in honor of the queen, but
her health was drunk in well filled
bumpers of champagne and punch.
The natty cruiser was handsomely
draped and the effect disclosed the ar
tistic" temperament of the officers. The
quarterdeck from the mizzen gangway
was covered with a tent of flags and
the sides enclosed, thus giving the in
terior a gorgeous color effect. The
canopy canvas was concealed from view
by flags, some of which were extremely
odd in design, and all rich in color. The
display of flags of various nations was
probably the finest ever shown here in
The brass rails, binnacles and stanch
ions were prettily wound with maile
studded with carnations, with inter
weavlngs of bunting. One of the most
artistic effects was the winding of the
big guns with red and white pennants,
the muzzles being locked by peaceful
looking bouquets of carnations and
ile, instead of the warlike brass-mounted
The refreshment table was decorat
ed with maile and blossoms and bore
delicacies in the rich silver service of
the vessel. A huge cut-glass bowl was
filled with punch.
The officers were on the qui vive,
and, possessing an excellent command
of English, were capital entertainers.
The guests, who comprised a' large
contingent of society folk and officials
of the Territory, army and navy, were
conducted through the warship, the
feminine portion being especially in
terested in the massive guns and the
delicate machinery with which they
were moved and fired. The captain's
cabin was one of the interesting re
treats. The visitors were there shown
relics of the Incas recently discovered
in a cave in Peru. One was a stone
statuette, and another was a peculiar
belt of seeds, a portion of which was
composed of Job's tears. The relics are
several centuries old.
Through the courtesy of Governor
Carter the Hawaiian band played dur
ing the reception on the main deck,
and the guests were given an oppor
tunity to dance on the quarter deck.
Governor Carter, accompanied by
; Hon. C. L. Crabbe. the President of the
Senate, and Senator Achi, as his staff,
and also by Robert Js. Boyd, a former
' officer in the Italian navy, was met at
the gangway by the cruiser's captain
! and a guard of marines who presented
! arms. Governor Carter offered his con
1 gratulations to the captain complimen
tary to the Queen Dowager, the cap
! tain toasting the President and the
' United States in return.
Among those present besides Gov
' ernor Carter were Italian Consul and
: Mrs. F. A. Schaefer, the Misses Schae
I fer, French Consul and Mrs. Raas, Ad
miral Terry, U. S. N., Captain White,

FREAK OF SEA
The steamer Mauna Loa arrived yes
terday morning from Hawaii and Maui
ports. The remains of Col. W. H.
Cornwell, accompanied by his widow
and daughter, Mrs. A. A. Braymer,
were brought from Lahaina.
A report of activity in Mokuaweoweo
crater came by the steamer. Volumes
of smoke could be seen from Punaluu
pouring from the crater last Tuesday,
and it was seen that Pohakuhanalei on
the Kona side was also sending up
smoke. On last Tuesday morning in
creased activity was apparent as a big
cloud of smoke suddenly rose from Mo
kuaweoweo. During the forenoon,
while the Mauna Loa was lying off Pu
naluu, the water began to boil and
churn, and the marine phenomenon
was witnessed by the entire crew.
Captain Simerson states that the pecu-
liar disturbance was something he had
never before seen. A gale was blow
ing at the time, when cross seas un
expectedly appeared. So sudden was
the disturbance that a boat lying in
the water at the steamer's side was
capsized, and the boat's crew was
thrown into the water. The sailors
were pulled aboard the steamer by
ropes thrown out to them. Fifteen
The Ke Au Hou, which arrived yes
terday from Kauai, met with such
rough weather in Kauai channel that a
Portuguese woman was almost washed
overboard. Chief Engineer Gardner
saved the woman as she was swept by
a sea toward the rail. He was also
washed along, his head striking a
stanchion, almost rendering him un
conscious. He held on to the woman,
however, and prevented a tragedy.
Captain Tullett thereupon ordered all
passengers into the cabins. The lat
ter were flooded while the steamer
headed into the sea. .
MUST BID FOR
The War Department will advertise
for bids for furnishing coal for trans
ports in Honolulu. :aptain Williamson
has received no definite information as
to this but expects the call for tenders
to come very soon.
The next transport from San Fran
cisco will probably not get here until
about the eighth of December. Only
one transport a month now leaves San
Francisco, sailing on the first. The
Manila transport leaves on the fifteenth
of every month.
At present, temporary orders are that
transports shall stop in Honolulu both
coming and going, and the permanency
of the order will depend upon the price
of coal in Honolulu. The present agree
ment with the Merchants' Association
is not satisfactory to the War Depart
ment and a new contract must be

A Lucky Find.
Great excitement prevailed at the
fish market early this morning, when
a monster shark, the largest ever seen
here, was brought in by some Jap
fishermen, who immediately proceed
ed to cut the carcass up. The dorsal
fin of the sea monster, measured nearly
seventy-two inches, and will be pre
sented to the Bishop Museum. But
the bystanders nearly went wild when
upon opening the stomach of the shark
a variety of ship's instruments and
sailors clothes were found, upon ex
amining, the lining of the stomach there
were also found several cards explain
ing the merits of the Douglass Patent
Closet, sold by Bath the Plumber, and
guaranteed against leakage, and the
annoyance of running water. Phone
A very pretty entertainment was
given last evening at the Y. M. C. A.
hall for the benefit of the Central
Union cadets. The audience was not
large but made up in enthusiasm what
it lacked in numbers.
The program was varied and inter
esting. The opening number, an in
strumental trio, "Anona" (by Mabel
McKinley) by the two Misses and Mas
ter Ball was much appreciated. The
young people played exceedingly well
and were heartily applauded. They
repeated their success in a later se
lection. The club swinging by F. C. Atherton
was very clever and graceful. In re
sponse to a hearty encore Mr. Atherton
gave an exhibition of club swinging
with fiery clubs. Miss May Paty fol
lowed with a reading which also won
The cadet drill under Captain O'Don
nell was interesting. The boys exe
cuted the marches and setting up ex
ercises well, although they had but
three hours training, as explained by
the drill master.
Miss Iaukea's piano solos were very
creditably executed. Mrs. Agatha
Cook's vocal solos were very well re
ceived as was the vocal duet by Mrs.
Damon and Mrs. Hare.
Allan Dunn delighted and amused the
audience with his reading of "The
Bishop and the Caterpillar" and he was
compelled to respond, reciting "To
Wed or Not to Wed."
Mrs. At wood played f "Polonaise,"
from Chopin, exceedingly well. The
program was closed by a trio with

STICKS TO OFFICE
There is nothing later in the Treas

Mr. Kepoikai still refuses to resign the
office. Governor Carter yesterday
sent the following reply to the Treas

first interview with you was on Oct.

if it was Satisfactory for jou to put in

"My second interview was on Nov.
2d, the day before Mr. Baldwin left.
