NEWS FROM HAWAII

Wreck on the Kohala Coast---Big Cane Fire Near Kaui.

SEATTLE, Washington, Feb. 11.---Latest advices from Honolulu by the steamship Garonne make the identity of the wreck that recently drifted on the coast of Kohala doubtful. It is believed that the wreck is that of the Emma Claudina, a three-masted schooner flying the American flag, which left Honolulu for San Francisco Dec. 16. All hands are believed to have been lost.

A terrible cane fire was raging in the fields of the Makee Sugar Company, near Kaui, when the steamer James Makee left that point for Honolulu.
