Puttier llayinoiid dula Iiinde.: Head n written
Htntuinuiit which ho filed with tho Committee,
l'oluii told mo, Hint hU wlfo hnd frequently pro
voked him to wrnlh. That ho could not bear with
hor any longer. Ho told mo tlnil ho wns intini
ciUcd. That ho hnd drnnk three abuses of liquor,
and wns ItlUihi. This wan at llio timo whoii ho
wont to commit tho deed. Ho wild bIio bad pro
mised to have intercourse with no other ihthoii.
IloH.iidthat lie hid a wifo HviiiK, lnlt wiih livlnit
apart from her. I saw l'oltia for tho first (line
early in Mnroli, In prnon. Hu in a (pilot and
thoughtful man. Hn is not liko tho most of IiH
coiintrvinoii, now is iieiiitcnt. All I have learned
of him", in from himself. Ho is willing to die.
ltev. 11. II. Parker: I.ivo in Honolulu. Have
seen Volu.i Hoveral times ill O.ilm Prison. Went
as a clergyman. Ho gave, miiiiuwh it of tlio history
of bis life. That ho lived in Honolulu about 10
years, then wont to Ilain.ikim, Hawaii from
thence wont to Knu where ho nnide tho nciittailit-1
iiiiuu of tho woman whom ho killed j then wont to
Pun.i, then returned to Kan, then lived attain with
her; finally alio loft him and wont to live with
another man. Said ho killed her because ho was
enraged with her ; ho went to the house mid met
her ami tho mnii at the door and killed her; ho
then tried to tako his own lite and thought bo had
succeeded, but n doctor sowed up his Mounds;
when bo found that he would live ho was relieved;
slid that sho desecrated his own house; wild she
jeered and insultod'hini. Ho nude these shite
nionts on my first visit to him Home moiitliH nun ;
ho did not say he wasiusino when bo committed
the crime. 1 have visited him at least live times
talked with him at length ; ho showed no sinus of
ins-inity; ho slid he was overcome with passion
when he did the deed. "Hit pmii mi Un jmnli."
He did not Hiv he was under tlio iiillueiice of li
quor at tho timo ; ho Slid ho was responsible for
the crime ; he was very serious. The last time I
Vaw him w is tlio d y when ho was reprloi ed ; the
time previous ho said ho deserved tlio punishment.
I have wen Hawaiians many times do strange
things, which to us might seem strange liko
this, but his soundness of mind was unclouded;
siid bo in idu preparations for the murder; slid
he cut bis lingers accident illy, think bo lid ho
did so while sh spoiling tlio knife. Ho was not
married to tlio woman he killed ; she had told him
that sho had lived with other men ; he did not say
lie hid been drinking; ho told ii very clear story
and seemed to hive a lery cleir recollection of
Dr. It. MoKibbm, Physician and burgeon: Siw
Polu.i at O.ilin prison day before yesterday nt re
quest of Committee, hid a long conversation with
him, moitly in Hawaiian. Am acquainted with
Hawaiian langii me : made inquiries of the keepers
of tho prison, Malailii, a Constable, and Mr.Fyfo
they said bo was the same now as when ho came
in. They said he had no ho ulache, no fever, ato
well and slept well . I then repeated the questions
to him ; ho confirmed those answers ; he Haid ho
had been well, just tho s lino im now ; lie Haid that
he had bad some troublo at Wuikapu, had been
brought up for an assault and been imprisoned for
three ears; siid lately ho had lived awhile at
Hamakua, said he was married, that his wife was
living with another man at Hamakua. He said he
had been living n year and eight mouths (with the
exception of one mouth) with the woman now de
ceased ; sho followed him to Knu ; ho siid that up
to n Hhort timo before this unfortunate occur
renco ho mid sho had lived together on the liest of
terms ; that lately he suspected her fidelity, hIio
lived with a teamster, and sho did not tako care of
him as formerly ; one day ho h iw this man leaving
his (Poluii'sl room through mi oenlng ; he went
out with him and talked ery insultingly to him,
(Polui)aud made him very nngry. Shortly nftor
ho aw her walking between two men holding their
hands and passed him, jeering at and taunting
him; this made him very nngry; when ho went to
his work ho was brooding over it; when ho came
homo from his work hIio was not nt home, but was
at tho house of tho other man, about a chain off ;
li became still incensed nml went mill got a bot
tle of uMelmii f rom which ho drank homo; said
ho then had ni.ulo up his mind to kill her ; said ho
bought n knife because he had uouo in tho houHo
to cut leef with. I told him I had seen n knife
similar to tho one ho used, and it was not nucli a
one nn ho used for domestic purposes, and wiih told
Im sharpened tho back of it. What did you do
that for? didn't )ou do it to kill the woman? Ho
said yes. My impression is that ho Bald ho bought
it before drinking tho liquor, mid that ho had
made up his mind to kill the woman before drink
ing ; he itaid he picked up tho club in the carpenter
shop; he said ho had hung up the woman's dress
before tho window of his room, mid put up Home
pieces of cr.iu about the room. Ho Haid he hung
up tho dress to prevent them from seeing through
tlio window what ho wiih going tu do, then he went
to tho house where tho woman was; and waited n
minute or two till she came out with n Haucepan,
the man wiih with her ou the other Hide of the pan;
bo then Htruck at the woman, struck nt the back of
the neck, she fell on her Hide ; he thou tried to cut
her throat with the same knife ; did not know why
he did not kill himself ; said bin jiouli, (darkness)
Hint came into his beait caused him to do this. At
present he in in perfectly sound mind ; there is no
excitement, he is perfectly cool ; from the iuhii'h
account and memory of the factH I should say he
was not insane when he committed the deed ; but
from thd tauntH and drink lie wiih excited. The
draping the room in the manner ho described I
should not .think allowed insanity ; the cutting
of the finger, I think he anid wna accidental, no his
aocount impressed me, but I do not remember dis
tinctly about that, he told mo ho bought the knife
the day be committed the deed ; anid he bought it
at tba store, and nharpened it for the purpose of
Dr. J. 8. HoQrew, Physician and Surgeon. Went
with Dr. McKibbin to Oahu prison, he inter
preted, finally found Polua could talk pretty
ROodKaKlialit I have joit heard Dr. MoKlblms
statement and hare no variation to make ; have
been pxactUing medicine over HO years ; I think
Polua ia of perfectly aound mind, waa cool and
sound in bin (tatementa, from the statements
which be made of bis actions I should Judge him
to be a man alow to anger, bad been cool and col
lected, and purchased the okvUhao tu nerve him
self .he. seemed to be very determined and hard to
counts! when angry : be laid down before ua to
abow the position the woman wna in when he
killed her ! aald he felt a peculiar feeling come
over him, nt Ida heart when they chaffed him.
"A." If I bad not seen the subject of inquiry or
If I had not bad a careful report or diagnosis of
hi cake made by a skillful person who had aeen
and examined him and had only street rumor of
Incidents I should uot be able aa a medical man
tu give an; valuable opinion touching hia aanity
or insanity ; I riaited this man in prison at the re
quest of this Committee through the Chairman.
I do not consider an nttempt to commit milcido
after committing murder us an Indication of in
sanity, it might be to avoid pain, punishment or
disgrace; from what I have heard of tlio circum
.stances n( this easel do not consider that Polua
was insane when he committed tho died.

Dr. J. Ilrodio, Physician ami Surgeon, lit mi
practicing four ears. At request of tho Chairman
of Committee I viMlcd Polua in prison yesterday,
nml from my examination I do uot consider him
to bo of unsound mind, I have not reason to he
lium him to bo out of h.iiio mind: I would not be
able to form u valuable opinion of his insanity ;
from Htreet rumor: (Hamo niiHwer "A." J '
Prom the narrative given by Dr. McKibbin, sup- (
posing it to bo true, 1 would not consider Hint ,
Polua was insane at the timo ho committed the '
net ; I would not cotisidtrit to bo ninofiit Insanity; j

and sprinkling cologne water about.
Dr. H. HolTinati, Physician and Surgeon.
Surgeon and Mtdical attendant of (J.iliu PHhoii
for twenty yearn more or les, nml urn no now.
Ilnvo Recti Polua there several times, llvoor six
times ; have conversed with him both, in Hawaiian
mid Knglish, ho sis'.ikH Kuglish enough ho that I
can understand mm ; his physical condition is
very good; when I first saw him mid now, is in
eiy good health; ho says ho himself, his pulso is
good ; I hale talked with him about the crime ; lie
is very ready to talk about It ; ho is not insane now.
Having had charge for a number of joarsoftlio
liiHiiio Asylum, 1 have count to the conclusion,
that homicidal mania is very rare in Hawaii, ins.
Prom my long intercourses with Native Hawaiians,
I knew also that their naturally kind and nuiinbtu
disxniticm is cnxily roused to" a passion by being
ridiculed, us Polua tells mo, ho was by his com
panions. Again I think that jealousy excites their
migor beyond utmost miythtug else, mid in my
opinion under those mental inllucncos, u.iinhiiied
with having tiken okolohao, as Polua tells mo,
ho had taken, tho murder wiih committed.
IJr. C. M. Hydo: Amu clergyman, reading in
Honolulu; visit O ihu Prison iilm'Ht every Sundiy
morning. Have seen Polua twice; talked with
him. He talked without reserve. Ho seems like
a very mild pleasant HiHikcu mini, of a laiger
physical frame than Hawaiians usually are. lie
said that intoxication was the calico of Ids com
mitting tlio offense; would not havo done it but
for that. That was tho only explanation ho gave
mo of tho cause. I did not ask him about tho
pirticiilam of tlio crime, Hceiued very penitent;
siid be felt hard at first, but had repenud. Hnd
lead a bad life. Hut repented, said bo now trusted
in Christ; prayed in ncoheicnt nml proper milli
ner. Seemed perfectly sane; said ho drank from
habit of intoxication.
Jiev. A. O. ForbcHt Clergym ill, born on those
Islands, lived hero most of my life. Have Keen
Polua in the Pria in only once, week before last,
two Sabbaths ago; went with Dr. Hyde. Con
verned with him m Hawaiian about live minutes.
Did not ask him about the particulars of the
crime. Hut wpoko to him of the necessity of pun
ishment for the crime, which he admitted. Sixiko
to him about ropontnnce, mid of personal trust in
God mid Jesus Christ as ids Hedeemer. He seemed
remark ilily self possessed, lie seemed to realize
fully his situation. There was nothing about him
to lead me to think him insane. Ho seemed to
havo no harsh feelings toward nny one; st-omed
renlly penitent. Hnd religious liooks. Otrertd no
justification. Seemed to be preparing himself for
his coming fate. I signed the petition becnuso I
was informed that new ovidoncohnd been found,
and Hint tho circumstances might extenuate; 1
know of no such circumstances.
It was mentioned to mo at the time, (tho night
before the time appointed for execution) that ho
had been ho ill-treated by tho woman mid her
p iramour; having been tied hand mid foot and
placed under tho bed, while thoy parnded their
conduct before him; and ho had been driven to
desperation. At Hie timo of signing the petition 1
understood she was his wifo.
Cecil llronn : Lawyer. Was present nt tho trial
of Polua, at SVniinon, Hawnii, Inst November; ho
uppeared ierfectly sane. He pleaded guilty, but
the Court would not allow the plea to Iw entered.
During the trial he appeared perfectly wine. Kn
lua mid Nawahi were assigned to defend him.
Niiwnhi, in my opinion, in the best Hawaiian
lawyer at the bar. Kalua was not intoxicated
during the trial; Nawahi never drinks. Tho Court
never allows a drunken pernon in Court. Prom
the evidence adduced I think 'no foreign counsel
could have defended him better. Mr. Preston
proHocutid. I have no circumstances since the
trial, which would tend to mitigate tho offense.
Have heard ho was n very jealous mnn, so tho
natives of Hamakua told mo. From tho nature of
the crime mid the evidence, I believe ho was fully
aware of what he was doing when ho committed
tho crime. Kalua made n very vehement address
to the Jury, but he had no evidence. F. Spen
cer wiih tlio tlerk of tho Court. He miule no Htnte
luontH, and made no offer of any to tho Court.
Throe or four dnH (or n week) pnaseil between
taking tho ploa mid going to trial, .Anhford Spen
cer was nlo about the Court. Itoth ho and F.
Spencer had every opportunity to offer evidence.
There was an unusually large number of persons
from Knu nt that term of Court. I have attended
that circuit for fivo yearn in HUCcesHion. Tho term
lasted more than two weeks.
John li. ltees : I signed the petition. I know of
no facta in mitigation of Huh offense. Do not
think ho could have la-en in n good frame of mind
nt tho time. Among Hawaiians tho love of mnn
for woman is sometimes very strong, ho also is
jealousy. Think this mnn was vory much pro
voked. Elamn : Am S6 years old. Have not seen
Polua. I think Polua wna crazy when he com
mitted tho crime. Among Hawaiiaim love and
jealousy is strong, and if the woman leaves them
they coinmitt suicide. When the lovu is strong
they do this. Whou made tboso circumstances
they commit homicide, it in a sign of temporary
insanity. Hanging should be tho punishment for
poraoiiH who commit murder with malice afore
thought, not in passion.
Kmnio : Polua wna n good mnn. mid when bin
,,rrinr4v In linr wny int.irfMMul with Iim IVttB vr
powered, nnd he wna carried nwny with nnger. lie
looka like n cood man. In the oiiae of a Soanlard
ou this Island who committed a murder, he wna
not hung, but only imprisoned. This Polua case
wna like Sam's case at "Wnikiki, who killed hia
wife then killed himself. I Bigned the petition
because I wna nnked to, and because of aloha,
Mikaaobe: I aigned tho petition. I believed
that Polua committed the crime be ia ignorant and
bliud. Do not know Polua, never saw him, Have
read the newspaper acouut of the murder. Know
of no new circumstances. Do not kuow whether
she waa Polua'a wife or not. The sentence of the
Court waa just, but I bare pity for the man.
W. J.Wright: Do not know Polua. I signed
the petition; read the petition. I think he waa of
unwound mind when he committed the deed. Hia
draping his room, sprinkling perfumery nnd cut
ting hia Auger made ma think he waa insane. I
heard that be sharpened the knife and out hia
finger to try it it waa sharp, then weut and killed
Panee ; Do not know Polua ; know nothing
about the matter. I signed tba paper from senti
ments of aloha. Many Hawaiians are dying, and
I wish his life spared.
Kaoua : I aigned the petition because many are
now dying, and no more deaths should be added.
Know of no facta.
lieka : I aigned the petitiou. I know nothing
of tbe circumstances of Polua's oaTena. But
signed that tbe sentence might be commuted.
Joseph Lainaholo; I aigned the petition from
feelings of aloha for the man Polua. It is tba
same feeling I would have for any on who waa
senteuoed to death. Now ia a time of mourning,
and I object to any one being bung.
Haalico: I signed the tltlon. Do not know
Polua. I think he must fun e been insane to do
hiicIi n thing. Know nothing of tho circumstances.
He hnd groat line for that woman, mid from
miner nnd jealousy killed her.
'I he Coinuiitlee thou adjournid.
Tit i it t Day.
Ou Monday morning the ComitiitWo uhiii tho
enso of Polun resumed their investigation.
Claude .Tones : Stated that ho had bien present
ill tho trial, WnH well acquainted with the factH
of the case lis the mnn had desired him to act in
his defence, but Hint when ho found ho could piy
no retainer, be had dicliuid to utidort ike so grae
n resisiiisibillty without being remunerated for bis
trouble, lie considered Hie limn was feebly
defend"!!. No plea of insanity was raised. lie
lookid nt it from a professional oiiil Of view
merely to see what grounds could bo raised, and
he consideredth.it tho plea of ilisitiity was the
only lino to take. Ho had stated this to Mr.
Prank Hkiiicci, Ho reasoned that a iieiii deficient
in reasoning power, of strong punsinns, became
abnormally excited at the desertion of bis
paramour mid her Intimacy with others ; bin
wounded self-love produced insane jealousy, act
ing miller which liu prepared deliberately to com
mit Hie deed. Homo questions wcru asked ami
miswcred as to wlut witness eotiHldered normal
mid abnormal excitement. Ho thou continued
Hint ho did no consider this a case of fin or hi m'n
or sudden provocation. These olnts lie would hale
urged had he coiiduuttd tlio defence. Ho con
sidered tho mini of weak intellect ou account of
answers which he luado about his family mid
friends. The evidence which madu him think the
man wiih Insane came out in trial, but if ho had
been in the position of Judge, it would not have
made him alter his sentence. Had tho mnn been
married ho would havo viewed the case from u
different standpoint. 'When asked if any Courbt
of piidou had exercised their pardoning power
iiixiu the grounds which ho advanced, ho Haid that
during a course of 10 years experience ho never
had known them to do ho, hut at the same time
pnidons wero frequently granted without any
reasons being published. Mr. Gibson inquired
u hat effect suicide would have upon his idea of
the man's Hiiuity, nnd asked if in insurance canes
it hnd not been ruled Hint men wore insane who
committed suicide. It was stated tli.it there bail
been no such ruling. After Home further remarks
upon suicide the witness retired.
Marshal Parke stated he hid been present at
the trial, mid thntMr. Kalu i, who defended Polua,
was perfectly sober, a statement which lie repent
ed several times. Kalua had been intoxicated n
week before, llo worked hard to obtain a verdict
of manslaughter. Ho considered a Hawaiian
counsel would bo bettor with u Hawaiian Jury
than ii foreigner.
A.Carter: Had been employed at Knpapila;
tho minder took plnco ou tho night he left. Know
the man well, was acquainted with his domestic,
troubles. There was nothing out of the way about
the man; he was not over intelligent, but lib was
not fnfu; ho was very willing, but lacked judgment
when intrusted with work by himself. Ho c.imo
to the plantation with a reputation for bad
temper, but during !) months experience with him
he had never shown it. When tho woman left
him, Polun came tu witness to complain that she
had nn improper intimacy with a teamster,
mid asked him if ho could not got her b ick. Wit
ness hunted the woman up; she complained that
Polun ill lined her; ho hud knocked out two of her
front teeth; Polun hiniFolf had driven her away J
this witness had himself heard. The planta
tion bands wero very rrowdttlnt the time, nnd
there wiih a difficulty in keeping the California
bands from visiting tfio native quarters. In reply
to Mr. Gibson, there wero L'OO men nnd 8 women
on tlio plantation. The woman stated sho wiih
going to marry the teamster; sho declined to
marry Polun. Un tho day ho left the plantation
ho Haw Polun nt work on the trash grounds; bo
itppenrod un usual, but asked wittioas why ho did
not use his nuthority to get the woman hack for
him. The woman had been absent u week, mid bo
had frequently made tho Hamo request. Ho worked
harder nnd better thnn usual under tho idea that
witness would do something for him. On tho
morning of tho murder ho had asked tu be excused
from work on account of tho miliiiir. but wiih ro
f u ed mid went to his work as usual. When in
Honolulu, he had at Polua's request, tried to visit
him in jail, but was unablu to keep his npiioiut
meut. lie met Mr. Fyfe, who told him the mnn
was crazy. The man wiih n little different nfter
tbe woman left, but was not insane. He was not
jeered at by his neighbors or tho gang workmen,
lie wiih healthy. Never saw him under tho in
fluence of liquor.
Jnmieson : Was carpenter on tlio plantation.
Know Polun. Thought him insnno. Saw him n
few hours before tho deed; asked him about tho
woman and advised him to leave nnd go to Puna.
Polua said ho was done with her; ho was uot right
iu his head; ho hnd not eaten or slept for throe
,! .. l,..lt... l.n.l ilr...n .... .. ! t . . it tl.v.i,. il n ....
had been loafing about in his bent clothes; had
done no work nt nil that day; tho general impres
sion about tho plantation wiih that tho mnn hud
done no work, llo wiih witness' helper. He hnd
beard Hint Polun Hpent much money on the
woman. Ho was the tirst man down nt tho scene
of tho murder; did not see how ho cut his throat,
but Polun told him nftor Hint he hnd sawed it by
taking tho knife in both bands. Polun was nblo
to talk in native rationally. There wna n cross of
black Httiff ou tho window; tho man's oyes wero
bandaged with u veil. Had heard of no fresh cir
cumstances. D. K. Fyfe stated thnt ho hud only jokingly re
marked to Carter thnt the mnn wna crnzy; ho had
Hpokeu on Saturday last. He hud no reason to
think the man insane.
The Chief Justice then remarked thnt there was
no obligation for nny one to come, the Committee
hnd been appointed by tbe Sovereign to enquire
into the case, nnd nil thnt wns wnnted was that
people should come forward and Htnto whnt facta
they knew. The expression " cited " whioh wna
used in the circular issued by the Committeo
As the Committee were on the noint of retiring.
Dr. Webb came and stated as follows : He con
sidered thnt Polua waa insane nt the time of the
murder. When he visited him in prison this
morning, he found he bad henrt disea&e, from
which lie hnd been suffering before he committed
the murder. His pulse wna high and fluctuating.
When he commenced talking it was 10T, in )
minutea it was 120, and in 20 minutes more it was
122. As proof of hia insanity at the time, he
argued that tbe man had been three days witbont
food and two nights without sleep; that during
tbe third day he bad drank a bottle of oiolthao,
That before killing the woman he had tried the
amis on uia own nanus, anu mat tne wounds gave
him no pain; this waa Jnst tbe condition of many
insane patients of whom tbe doctor had had
chargs: cited the case of a woman who bit a piece
out of her arm and felt no pain, she had had pins
atuck in her back without feeling them. Thia led
him to think tbe man waa insane, but that the
moment ha had out hia throat, the blood letting
brought him to hia sense, and he understood his
responaibUities. Ha considered the state of the
man's heart a very strong point. A man with
heart disesse would ha more liable to be aVected
by liquor than well man.
Tbe Committee thtn adjourned.

Ilor British Majesty's good hIiIo I'hiiiin r being

Sir Joseph Porter, K. ('. II., First Uild of the Ad
miralty, iiinkis n tour of inspection, visits the
aforesaid ship accompanied by the crowd of Hislers,
cousins nnd aunts, who attend him wherever lie
goes, and haling made the peculiar mid miller
sturtling assertion Hint it llrittsh sailor is any one's
,qunl, excepting his, bo imokiH the Cnptiiiii to
mi iutoriimv on the subjict of his attachment for
.Miss Josephine, the Captains daugliter j mid while
they nro discussing the mailer, llalph, a common
Hnifor having long loed tho (taptain's datighloi
it fnct well known to all his messmates decides to
tell the fair creature of the honest low ho hns for
her, mid having mado his mow ul mid bteu rejected,
considers life under the circumstances not worth
having mid calls his comrades and warns them not
lo Itmi in n rank above them, draws a plslol mid
proceeds to finish his career ill a very Hiiinmnry
manner; when Miss Josephine, having watched
the proceedings from her cabin, rushes forth, stays
his hand, and acknowledges her love for him. Up
on snid htnti'iiient having hi came fairly fixed in
his mind, ho embraces tlio fair one, receives Hie
congratulations of nil present, and dicidcH to Hteal
nslioru at half past ten nnd meet n clergyman, who
will make them one. De.ldeyo, the lrle imir of the
clew, then steps in to stop tho elopement, re
pro iches the low born tar with bis tintltncss for u
mulch with the Captain's daughter, who is u lady,
while he ia the " vilest slave Hint sails tho wnler.
In spito of this, nil present resolve tho pro
giammo shall bo carried out, mid cry, "back,
vermin, back, you shock uh," nnd Dendeyo be.itH
ii fenced retreat, while the danco and congratula
tions continue till the fall of thociirtnin ou act our.
The Htcond act opens with u beautiful serenade
by the Captain gazing nt the moon nml accom
pany ing himself ou the guitnr. At the close of his
song ho discovers Little llutterciip u bumboat
woman ) still on board, having been supplying the
Hiiilora with small articles of clothing, HweotiueatH,
etc. A duett with words of mysterious iniiiort fol
lows in which u change Ispropbesiul for tho Ca
taiu. Little lliitteicup now withdraws nt the ap
proach of Sir Joseph, who has been unsuccessful
in his Huit with Josephine, mid expresses his sur
prise thereat, but is urgtd to try again and to
st ito officially his wishes. llo retires to the cabin,
when Josephine sings of her troubles, which con
sist mainly of deciding whether hIio shall continue
ill the luxury to which she has been accustomed
by marrying tho Admiral, or to marry for love
with tho H.tilor, taking thereby tlio consequent
miserable life in Homo back street, where house
wives yell, children cry and dinners nro Horved iu
it pudding basin. Sho culls iiimiu the god of lo e mid
god of reason to decide which of the twain she
Hhall choose. Tho Admiral mid Captain now come
forward with assurances that love levels nil
ranks nnd thnt tho difference in station should
not prevent acceptance of his lonlshp's nuit. The
Htiitor nnd father withdraw to arrange prelimin
aries when Dendeyo approaches the Captain, in
forms him of the proposed elojemcnt of his
daughter with Kalpb, which the Captain endeavors
to prevent by arming himself with n cut-o'-nine-tiiilH.
Ho wraps n boat clonk nlxmt him, nnd
awaits tho eloriera approach, which being nearly
accomplished, is frustrated by the demancl of the
Captain ns to where his daughter may Ihi going ;
and in bis great indignation at the persistence of
Kalpb, Hwenrn n "big, big D," which, being over
henrd by the Admiral, brings him on the Hcene in
nil tho wrath of lib offended dignity. He orders
tho Captain to seclusion, nnd demands of ltnlpb
tho cause of nil this disturbance. The tar no Hoouer
ropliou that Josephine is the ' figure bead of bis
ship of life, tho bright beacon thnt guides him into
bis port of hiippiuoH " thnn tho Admiral, whoso
linger known no liound, enquires for n dungeon and
chains for Italph, who leaves tho scone liotwceii two
marines. Ituttercup nt this juncture discloses the
fnct thnt many years ago when she wns young nnd
charming, she wn.s n baby farmer, hnd two tender
bal-oH to nurse ono of upper crust the other of
low condition, nnd that they wore "mixed up."
The bal's afterward became Cnptnin Corcoran

This statement ho surprises the Admiral that

Admiral to soothe nnd comfort his declining years;
