NOW READY FOR CARNEGIE'S THOUSANDS
"Ironmaster" Has Been
Notified That Con
ditions of His Gift
Are Complied With.
That Honolulu is to have a Carnegie
Library that will be a distinct and i
lasting ornament among the public j
Duildinga of the city is now practically i
assured, fulfilling the promise' that the i
"ironmaster" made in the course of
a conversation with Governor Frear
some months ago in New York.
The Territorial Government, the trus
tees of the Honolulu Reading Room As
sociation and those of the Historical
Society, have done their part in mak
ing the necessary arrangement that will
conform to the stipulations exacted by
Carnegie before concluding his library
gifts. The last Legislature appropriat
ed the sum of $10,000 per year for the
maintenance of the library of Hawaii,
and through the amalgamation with the
Honolulu Reading Room Association
and the Historical Society, it is estimat
ed that an additional annual income of
$5000 will be secured for the operating
expenses of the institution.
All the details of the plan as it stands
at the present time have been forward
ed to Carnegie and bis decision is ex
pected at any time. lAllof the re
quirements that Carnegie insists upon
for the upkeep of the libraries will be
fully complied with, and there is no
doubt that the "ironmaster" will act
favorably on the suggestion that ho
extend his liberality so as to include
the Territory of Hawaii.
$100,000, Sum Expected.
It is understood that a donation of
about $100,000 will bo received from
Carnegie for the cost of the library
building in Honolulu. There is a pos
sibility, however, that the amount will
be increased by $50,000, the conditions
having been more than met by the ac
tion of the trustees of the two asso
ciations and the appropriation by the
Legislature.
Jn speaking of the conditions of the
library gift yesterday Governor Frear
said that if the formal statement of
the action of the Legislature and the
agreement between the trustees of the
Honolulu Reading Room Association
and the Historical Society and the
Library of Hawaii, was now" before Mr.
Carnegie an early decision could be ex
pected from him.
The Governor stated that there was
a possibility that the letter did not
reach Mr. Carnegie before his departure
for Scotland on his anuual visit to his
old home. If this is so, it will be some
time before word is received from him.

OAHU DID WELL
IN TOURNAMENT
MR. CARNEGIE'S FIRST LIBRARY
GIFT.
The Carnegie Alcove in the Pittsburg
Library.
One of the best promotion ideas that
ever happened was certainly pulled off
by the Oahu Country Club when the
greens committee wired to Chicago the
result of the Tom Morris tournament.
Hawaii is not very near the top, judg
ing by the following clipping from a
Chicago paper, but those old link
trampers on the mainland sure know
that Hawaii is on the map and -they are
just about sitting up and taking notice.
1 Apparently the winning score was 16
down. Hawaii was 9S down, but even
the day after the tournament this paper
publishes a score of 127 down, so our
good local club-swingers are not all to
I t he bad by any means.
Here is, the clipping, published June
17:
CHICAGO, June 16. Western golfers
, today united in doing honor to the mem
ory of Tom Morris, "the grand old
man of golf," by simultaneous compe
tition on the links of practically all the
prominent clubs in the Western Golf
Association for the silver cup presented
by Peter Dawson of Glasgow, Scotland.
The club team of eight members, twenty-five
years of age or over, which turns
in the best score at match plav eigh
teen holes against par will win the
custody of the Tom Morris trophy until
the next birthday of the famous veteran
of M. Andrews.
From unofficial scores received to
night it appears that the Denver Coun-
- jtry Club of Denver, Col., has a safe
ciaim on tne lorn Morris .memorial
trophy, for which the first annual com
petition took place today on the lffiks
of the Western Golf Association.
Following are the individual scores
made by the Denver Country Club
team: H. E. McCracken, 4 up on par;
Walter Fairbanks, 2 up on par; A. C.
Travis, 1 up on par; M. W. Gano, even;
F. W. McCartney, even; D. B. Ellis 3
down on par; Wr. B. Morrison, 7 down
ou par; j. it. j,emist, 13 down on par
HIGH SCHOOL BONFIRE.
There were big doings at Makiki on
Thursday night. The High School held
its bonfire commencement exercises and
there was some exercise to it, too. About
I 7:30 Henry Chillingworth, amid great
pomp and ceremony, touched the match
that. lit the paper that started the blaze
that caught the twigs that reached the
logs that made a fire that rose up high
er that made a big glare in the sky that
burned like the dickens that simmered
down after an hour and was jumped
over.
All the good bunch was there. They
danced round the fire, they sang songs,
they made speeches and they gave sun
dry school yells that so terrified a trans
former on an electric light pole that
it got short-circuited and they had to
send out sixteen linemen to fix it.
As soon as the fire began to burn
low everybody had to jump over it.
The graduates went first and then fol
lowed the lesser lights. It was one
grand, good time until shortly after
nine o clock, when they all went home
and dreamed about what is going to
happen when football starts after the
holidavs. .

the organ in the Brick Church in Fair
haven, was once asked how much sal
ary he received. "Twelve hundred
dollars." he replied. "Twelve hun

for one hundred years."
