A quite unexpected, but a very wel come, announcement, came to the Mali liini Christmas Tree committee yester day afternoon, to the effect that both, anions the Japanese and Chinese col onies subscription lists were in circula tion to raise money for the fund and that in the neighborhood of a couple i of hundred dollars might be looked for from those sources. j Chu Gem, the venerable Chinese mer- j J chant, is back of the ilalihini fund ! i I campaign among the Chinese, while i Editor Sheba, of the Hawaii Shinpo, is enlisting his countrymen in the good work. This desire of the Japanese and Chi nese to help is in recognition of the fact that the tree is for the children of the city, without any distinctions regarding raee, class or religion. The Jatanese, also, state that the haoles j of Honolulu came forward liberally when thft reouest was made for monev I to aid the Japanese flood sufferers, and now, when the haoles have a fund sub scription lisi, open for a worthy object, the Japanese want to contribute. The Chinese, without wanting it xinderstood that they recognize the religious sig nificance of Christmas, want to help because of the broad charitable idea back of the Malihini Tree. This volunteer aid from the orientals of the city is all the more appreciated because few oriental children, compara tively, share in the benefit of the tree. j 1- ortunateiy lor tnem, tne cmioren oi tne Japanese ana umnese resiaents ao not need, as a rule, what the Malihini Tree is designed to give.

THE SAD, SAD TALE IF THE LAST LAUGH Some one wrote something about molecular motion once and said that the world occasionally reverses itself. A lady of Russian extraction is now in the city jail as a living example of the truth of the gentleman's remarks. A few days ago her husband was in jail and she was in the hospital. Now he is in the hospital. It seems that the domestic infelicity which appears to be the reigning element in this model household was the cause Friday of a little affair betwixt the man, the wife and a demijohn wherein the latter im plement was forcibly impressed on the lady's nose with disastrous results. The Letter half was sent to the hos pital to be sewn up while the husband was assessed a small sum in police court yesterday. He paid this so cheer fully that the bystanders suspected that he considered the privilege of altering his wife'" features worth the price. He then went home, kissed and made up. A fw hours later his wife caught lii-n misbehaving himself with a lady from Nipon Dai and hit him over the head with a b-.ng iron crowbar. The Queen's Hospt.al now shelters the husband, who remembers with infinite regret that he hit his spouse with the soft side of the demijohn.

PAGES Li AST D0TTR1LL NAMED FOR COLLECTOR President Sends Nomination of Negro to Senate for Confirmation. A special dispatch to the Sundav Ad vertiser from its special correspondent, Ernest G. Walker, dated at Washington, gives the information that President Taft has sent in the name of Charles A. Cottrill to the senate for confirma tion as collector of internal revenue for the Territory of Hawaii. It is believed his nomination will be confirmed. The nomination of Cottrill has been bitterly opposed by Governor Frear and other influential men in Honolulu, aud their protests apparently caused a sus pension of official action in the nomina tion. But when it became, evident to President Taft that the leaders in pub lic affairs here could not agree to sup- a(Wress before the American Society, port any one man for the position he ,or tlie Judicial Settlement of Inter solved the problem by sending the nom- national Disputes, in this cHv yester- , inatiou of his first choice to the senate, But although it is practically assured I that Cottrill will get the post", the Re- j publican territorial committee held a meeting yesterday to voice a last pro- I test. The committee has indorsed. John IG. Rothwell for the place and will not give up uutil the final appointment fs ctittilrtnetl. The formal nomination of Cottrill is a great disappointment, not only to the friends of the various candidates here, (but to Messrs. Rothwell, Fennel!, Goetz and Wideman, all of whom were striv- ing for the position, and all of whom had influential backers. In fact it is conceded now that it was hist this multiplicity of candidates and the fact that thev had all of them such influential backing, that is directly responsible for the nomination of Cot trill. The President, realizing the im possibility of concerted action in Ha waii, took the matter into his own hands, according to the advices from Washington, and settled the matter in that way. Among the business men seen here yesterday, after the news of CottriU's nomination became known, it was the consensus of opinion that nothing fur ther could be done to head off the ap pointment, and the feeling on all sides is one of disappointment at rhe action taken liy the President. Cottrill is a negro politician of To ledo, Ohio, is forty-seven years old, and has made a line record in the internal revenue office in his distirct, being held an expert in thelaw relating to his de partment. He is a thirty-third degree Mason and stands high in other or ganizations. HAVE ITS EYES OPEN The bouifacial career of one Lum Soon was yesterday temporarily cut short, when he fell into the hands of William P. Fennel!, scourge of blind pigs in general. Lum lately opened the Canton res taurant on Hotel street, just opposite Isaac Cockett's saloon, and has man aged to keep two floors fairly full of patrons. Sixty empty gin and beer bottles found on his place in a raid vesterday morning accounted for some of his prosperitv, and he evidently kept a cosmopolitan tnana, ior nnoies ami : ill li-j-t l.onti fr.'.inf-Tlt viltnr. ! Fen u ell was assisted by Special Offi cer Minvielle, sending in an informer with the customary marked coin. Lum Soon sold him a nice, cold bottle of beer, which puts the quietus on Lum for some time to come. Minvielle found the marked coin in the register, and Fennell found six iced bottles of beer in the ice chest. Luni Soon said that he had just bought the booze from Hop Hing, but as the latter firm is not permitted to sell iced beer, Fennell extended his in quiries, wiih the result that Hop Iling, as well as all the other supply houses, denied selling the restaurateur the beer.

Cabinet Meets. A special cabinet meeting at the White House was held in the after noon, lasting three hours and a half, and the rumor was that it was devoted to a consideration of the war scare. Later this rumor was denied. It is believed here now, among those well informed, that within a few days the excitement, following the unusual scenes in the house and the suppression of the report of the secretary of war, will die out.
