' Putting lip the Bars. It was tne opinion of Mr. Dole that it was entirely out of the province of (he Board to enact laws for restricting hiersons from entering th6 territory, 'hence the legislature must be looked to for aid.

Simultaneously almost with her Identification sfrom shore came word that'the Maui was ashore. She took bottom out by the Channel buoy. Probably it was on a shoal made by the storm, but at all events the steamer was deeply laden. She oacked propeller for all the engine was worth and in twenty minutes slid off and was soon moored in Wilder's dock. No damage was done to the Maui, so Captain Clarke, the wharf superintendent qt the company, believes. When a Republican reporter went aboard. Captain Sack and officers were having supper in the cabin. The captain kindly gave a report of the voyage.

There Will Be No Free List- -Even the Ladies Who Have Worked Hard For the Affair Will Have To Pay the Regular Price. Amid the bustle and confusion of preparing the great hall of the Drill Shed for the Mardi Gras ball, the final meeting of the efficient committee which has brought the plan of aiding the Honolulu Eye and Ear Infirmary so close to a successful consummation, was held and the last touches were put on the little details which are necessary to insure a perfect success in an undertaking of this character. There were about twenty of the ladies present and as the meeting progressed A. G. Hawes and Tarn McGrew came in and listened while the members of the committee went over the work before them. The ladles expressed themselves as being delighted with the appearance c f the official souvenir of the ball which had just been finished by the Robert Grieve Publishing Company. The souvenir Is a very neat bit ofwork and consists of twenty-four pages of. printed matter bound in Bristol board, with red silk fastenings. On the first page of the cover there is a cut representing a Creole masque In bhvk and yellow. The descriptive work concerning the objects of the entertainment was carefully prepared and tells of the work which uas already been accomplished by the Infirmary, its trials and the difficulties which, it is to be ?hoped, will he overcome by the finan cial results oi tne nan. a iuu list of the ladies who have undertaken to make tne dance an artistic as well as a financial success is also printed. A general dst of instructions to the dancers follows and then a series of notes and small talk Is set out. The souvenir close with an acknowledgment to Captain Berger' for the arrangement of a really fine musical program. The changes in the Drill Shed are being made with as much speed as possible and the interior of the barn-like structure is heginning to assume the appearance of a dance-hall. The row of private boxes along the north side of the hall is about completed and the stand for the musicians has been commenced. All was confusion and piles of lumber littered the floor in all parts of the hall. The sound of the busy hammer and saw made so much noise that It wnc -with difficulty that the ladles coulwmake themselves heard abore to din. But they persevered and when an adjournment was taken there was little remaining to be done between the present and the time of the ball. All that now stands between the committee and success, is the disposition or tne people of this city toward the f objects of the festival, and beyond any doubt the people of this city want the Infirmary to be placed on a firm nnancial basis and so the ladies are quite jubilant over the outlook. The tickets are not being, sold as fast as the committees could desire but it is confidently expected that the bulk of the pasteboards will be dis posed of within the next twenty-four nours. .Absolutely no free tickets will be distributed and each of the Dei-sons to whom tickets nave Deen civen for sale has agreed to make a strict ac counting ror the. tickets or tn h charged wlfh $2.50 for each one of mem.

K1MGAI0 AT m KIT HE ADDRESSED THE LADIES WITH IMPASSIONED FERVOR AND ELOQUENCE. Session of the Club Closed With a Pot-Pourri of National Anthem Japanese Chorus Sang thA Battle Hymn of Nippon. The Mothers and Teachers" Club of this city held a meeting yesterday afternoon at the Punahou Preparatory School and listened to an eloquent address on the subject of "Patriotism. by the Rev. W. M. Kincald and to tho rendition of several ot the patriotic hymns 'of the various nations of the earth by different ladies. The school-room was crowded when the opening of the exercises was announced and Dr. Kincald was summoned to make his speech. His first remarks were in definition of the term "patriotism." He said that the meaning of the word W3S In many respects synonymous with liberty and,spoko ot the Importance of fostering In tha minds of the youth of the ssuntry. a proper understanding of the real significance of liberty. He referred to the species of liberty enjoyed under the sway of the former examples of the republican form of government and explained that it was not by any means similar to that which we enjoy. He traced the mission of tho Jews, Romans, Greeks and other non-despotic governments and said: "The Romans had a. mission, it was to show the world tho power of conquest and the result of worldly force in dealing with. $hc problems of controlling the actions ot mankind. Tho characteristics of the Roman pcoplo -were oi a kind that may ho best described In telling of the strength and harshness of solid Iron. This pcoplo was strong and the stability of Its government rested upon the iron-like quality of the citizenship, but It fell, because the people of Rome did not accord a full measure of liberty to all the subjects of the great government "The treatment of the so-called barbarians by the people of tho latter-day Rome, was In a measure the reason for the ultimate fall of the government "Greece-Idealized Art, but the citizenship of tho land was not a free gift and the power of the government fell and crumbled when tho test of ita strength by prosperity and Internal luxury and corruption was placed upon it. "The great battle of Marathon was fought and won by slaves and restriction on human liberty under the sway of Rome may be illustrated tyy the message of Pompey to the anxious Populusque Romanorum, from the field where he had crushed tho last vestige of life from the cohorts of Spartacus. " I have met the vile slaves and have reduced them to the nothingness from which they originally came,' was his message. "Rome fell. Greece fell, and freedom, from the precincts ot the, learning of the ancient world, fled to the shores of our broad land and here raised up a government which took Liberty for Its motto and. under the guidance of God. this land has Increased in strength and power until today it stands foremost among the nations of the earth. "We are free today, because the liberty of the land is made possible by tne understanding of the people. We are free, because we are men. Tho lessons to be drawn from the histories of fallen nations should be taught to the young of the nation and the great destiny of our own land should be impressed upon their young minds, after the true principles ot human liberty have been Implanted in that receptive soil." When Dr. Kincald had finished, a beautiful ceremony wa3 performed. j The chairman announced that Star Spangled Banner would be sung by Mrs. Annis M. Turner. The melody of Key's hymn was sung in fine style and was well received. The American hymn was followed hr thrf alnrfne of "Wacht Am Rhein" and "Marseilles" by Mrs. a B. Cooper. Mrs. Cooper sang the battle-songs of the great European nations in the respective languages of those countries. Then a chorus of six Japanese gave the national anthem of Japaa and a quartette of boys from the Kamehameha school rendered tho Hawaiian hymn. At the conclusion of the music by tho quartette the audience arose and nated the last few nhrases and the kswinging chorus of the inspiring song- Refreshments were served and an informal discussion of tho subject of patriotism ia the schools took place and the ladies went home with, a largely Increased Idea of the practical uses f patriotism as a study for the, youthful mind.
