LECTURE ON ART
The Art League is to be congratu

evening by Miss Josephine C. Locke,
late of Chicago.
Miss Locke is an easy speaker, who,
while forgetting herself in her subject,
yet holds the attention of her audience
from first to last.
Miss Locke is a woman well known

THE STAR BOYCOTT. '
The Star announced on Saturday that the newsboys would
boycott the Advertiser on account of its free news "Specials."
Whether by reason of this threat or whether the boys know
that the Advertiser is the paper that people want, we do not know;
but we do know that about twice as many newsboys as usual were
on Hand yesterday morning, and, although nearly a thousand extra
papers were printed, they were all sold out by halt past six. One
boy announced his intention of "licking" any other boy found sell
ing Advertisers. The belligerent promptly skedaddled, however,
as soon as an Advertiser man appeared on the scene. Boycotts
are in order. Next !
Miss Locke holds that the cultiva
tion of a perception for beauty in a
people has a social and economic as
well as a civilizing value. She is in
love with the abundance of outdoor
nature in Honolulu and speaks of Ha

ing that the tropical foliage, the gorge.

propounded: Why are hot cakes like a caterpillar? The an
