the ttory of Spltzer's death has juat

Spitzer died at sea after trying
bravely to hide his identity, and doing
the hard wor& of a forecastle hand
under the racking pains of a consump

Spitzer was the hero of the oriental
waters for a decade or more. With
his brother, Dick, he revived in reality
the most adventurous days of the free
lances of the seven seas. As pearler,
blockade runner, gun runner, Louis
Spitzer had hair breadth escapes
which would fill many volumes. Again
and again he laughed at great fleets of
the world powers, at the spitting guns
of heavily manned forts, the gold lace

walls of oriental Jails. His brother
shared mo&t of his later adventures.

brought to this city with the arrival

that the several business organiza

may take the matter up with a view
of learning something definite con
cerning the repeated rumor of a moot

William Kekumano, policeman at
Napoopoo told in circuit court this
morning how he, as an officer of the
law, struggled with Joseph Henriques
for the possession of a rifle at that
place on the night of November 14,
during the fight between the Henri
ques family and some Japanese, and
how, during his struggle, he heard
the shots fired by John Gomes Henri
ques that killed Oyama and wounded
one of the other Japanese.
Kekumano is the second important
witness in the trial of John Gomes
Henriques, before a jury in Judge
Whitney's court on the cuarge of mur
der in the first degree. He stated
moment later he saw the white men
running up the" road toward, him, with
the Japanese in pursuit. Seeing the
rifle resting against the fence near
by, Kekumano, thinking the white
men were running to get the gun,
grabbed it himself. When they reach
ed him the elder Henriques. he said
grappled with him for its possession,
while the son threatened to shoot Ke
kumano, he averred, unless he gave
it up. Despite the threat, Kekumano
stated, he clung to the .weapon, and
