TRIAL OF ILANA FOR MURDER.
The trial of liana Kamailc for the murder
of her blind husband, whose death (attributed
lo iroisoning) occurred in October last, occu
pied the attention of the court during Wednes
day, Ihc 17th instant, and attracted an unusu
ally large and much-interested audience. Sev
eral witnesses were examined, among whom
were Doctors Emerson and Stangcnwald, who
were there simply to testify as experts the
latter in his capacity as a toxicological chem
ist, and the former as the surgical operator at
the autopsy. Among the principal witnesses
for the Crown were the father and mother of
the accused and a country policeman. Doctor
Strangenvvald testified to having carefully and
separately analyzed the stomach and its con
tents; portions of the intestines, liver and the
spleen of the deceased, and to have recovered
strychnia from each. The total amount of
strychnia obtained vvas atut the twenty-fifth
of a grain; but as portions of the substance
brought to him for analysis had not been ex
amined, probably more could have lecn ex
tracted. He said that, judging from the quan
tity recovered, he vvas of opinion that the de
ceased had imbibed a sufficient quantity to
account for his death. In speaking of the
physiological action of the drug, he said that
it vvas one of the most irotcnt and rapidly fatal
of poisons, producing tetanic convulsions in a
very few np'nutcs after ingestion; and had been
detected in the liver and in the blood of ani
mals experimented on, in from four to six min
utes after administration; that death from its
effects, whether in man or in other animals,
vvas invariably preceded by convulsions affect
ing the whole liody. To illustratctothc jury the
mode of death by strychnia some lizards were
experimented upon with fatal effect by the ad
ministration of minute quantities of the ioison
that had been obtained from the viscera of the
deceased. The Doctor alsostatcd that he had
recciv ed fur analysis, at the same time he had
received the viscera of the man, the stomach
and intestines ol (what was said to be) a dog;
also portions of the intestines of a smaller ani
mal, said to be those of a cat. The latter, for
reasons which he explained, had not been
analyzed; In the former he had discovered the
.same poison as that he found in the man; but
in addition thereto he had also found seeds and
other vegetable, matter which upon comparison
gave color to the belief that they were the pro
duct of certain poisonous plants which arc in
digenous to the soil. The effects of these sus
pected native poisons, as well as others of na
tive origin, he had made the subject of careful
experiment; but either had failed to produce
symptoms in any way resembling those pro
duccd by sir) chnia.
Dr. t.mcrson tcstihetl that lie hail nude a
post-mortem examination of the liody of the
deceased; that no athological condition of
the vital organs vvas discernible sufficiently
grav e in character to support the theory that
death had been occasioned thereby; that In
consequence he hail seen fit lo remove jmr-
lions of the ljody for chemical analysis ; these

KnfiOK SatiiuDVY prkssi I wish lo say
a few words nlmut the observance of New
Year's '.c at Walluku. I went to the native
church to watch the otd year out and the new
year in. The meeting was conducted by Itev.
Mr. Lane, Father Alexander and Itcv. Mr.
Kcavvacamahi, and was, I think, the first
meeting of the kind held in the Islands, and
we of Walluku can thank Mr. Lane for pro
imsing it. We had a glorious time. The
church vvas full of people until about 10
o'clock. Some of them then began to leave,
but there was still a good number in nnd near
the church shortly before 12 o'clock, when we
all knelt in silent prayer. The people outside
came in anil knelt Willi us; it vvas a very
solemn time and v cry quiet. When the bell
had finished ringing nil arose and congratu
lated each other, wishing each a happy New
Year. I think it was a glorious day from lie
ginning lo end.
On New Year's Day there vvas an examina
tion of the schools from liana, Huelo, Haiku,
Makawao, Paia, Waihce, Waikapu and Wnj
luku. They nil made a good showing, but I
must give some a little more praise than oth
ers. Miss Simpson and Miss Mary Davis,
Imth of Makawao, rcndercil two pieces in beau
tiful st)lc; one was called "Our Father which
art in Heaven." U vvas something which was
entirely new on these islands and the people
cheered them very much. The Sunday-school
which carried off the palm vvas the Wailuku
school, conducted by Itcv. Mr. Keaweamahi.
When they sat down they were loudly cheered.
It was beautiful to sit and listen to their sing
ing, and the exercise that they went through
while singing was splendid. About the middle
of the programme Father Alexander vvas pre
scnlcd with a cut glass and silver cake dish,
and Itcv. Mr. Kahalc, the late native minister
of Wailuku, received a silver cake dish; both
were presented to them by the Sunday-schools
of Maui. After thanking the people for their
New Year's presents they sat dow 11 amid im
mense cheering. After the examination there
was a big feast, in which about 500 people sat
down, and they all had a good time. I think
the natives and whites are very fortunate in get
ting two such ministers as itcv. Mr. Lane and
Itcv. Mr. Keaweamahi, nnd I think that the
"people lov e them very much ; but I think the
natives seem to have more alTcction for their
minister than the foreigners have for theirs.

woman, who attempted to iass it at Sprcckcls'
store at Kahulul. Now, the io!icu had some
thing lo work on. Djd they? Did she account
for the draft? Thelepuly sheriff waited on
her, and instead of arresting her, which should
have been done (notwithstanding her being a
kahuna or sorceress), he was iiiJuctJ to call
again on the morrow, vv hen she said she had
found the draft on Ihe road in .1 small envcl

having been tramped on by a horse. The fact
is, that particular draft was not in a small en
velope, but ws in the large one, and the
other drafts were in small ones inclosed within
Ihe large one. Now there are but two ways
in which that woman could have obtained that
draft, and they were the two ways which the
police did not think of, but are. perfectly feasi
ble. The clcik having admitted the receipt
of the letter, it is not likely that he stole It,
It is more than likely that he let it lay there

January II, tSSj.
Adopted by the " Poard of the Hawaiian
Kvangclical Association," on the death of
Ucv. Titus Coan.
Since it has pleased the Lord of the vine
yard to call to his eternal reward our brother,
the Itcv. Titus Coan, who has been the Presi
dent of this Hoard since its organization in
1S63, it becomes us to record our sense of
heavy bereavement in I113 departure.
Wc shall miss his venerable form and be
nignant presence as well as his valued counsels
nnd ripe experience. His zeal and tenacity in
the Missionary work, his singleness of heart,
his abundant labors, and his devoted Christian
character have made an abiding impression on
this Hawaiian nation nnd on all who have
come in contact with him,
Illessed with unusual vigor of constitution,
he fulfilled more than the allotted span of life,
keeping his strength almost to Ihc last, and
falling with the harness on. Few are permit
ted so completely to finish a full rounded life
work ; and the memory of his life of faithful
service will remain a rich legacy to those he
has left behind.
His was a peculiarly gifteil nature, not only
in the power to command Christ and His Sal
vation to men sunk in heathen degradation,
but also in the ability lo record and convey lo
others the impressions made uikiii his own
mind by the scenes and events he witnessed,
so strange and arousing to one ofjiis sympa
thetic nature and warm sensibilities.
His was an experience seldom vouchsafed to
Christian workers, to have a prominent part in
the conversion of a heathen nation to the Gos
pel of Christ, and lo witness the marvelous
changes wrought by that Gospel in their social
and national life.
We gratefully bear testimony to the remark
able power often accompanying his fervid ut
terances in former years ; a ower whereby
the Spirit of God wrought great effects upon
the crowds to whom he proclaimed the truths
of the Gospel. May his mantle fall on all the
servants of Christ who speak His Wonl in this
land and in the islands beyond.
We remember with special regard our de
parted brother's jo)ful and courageous faith ;
the confident and triumphant assurance which
pervaded all liisthoughts and counsels pertain
ing to Christ's kingdom and work. He vvas
ever possessed of a calm and clear assurance of
the onward progress of that kingdom, and of
the complete power of the Word and Spirit of
God in the mouths of his servants to prevail
over all obstacles. Ilissccmcd ever a full and
glad confidence in the continual fulfillment of
our Lord's promise to be always with His mes
sengers even to the end of the world.
