Japanese Consul General Hlsakichi
Eitakl is determined to learn. Yes
terday he "sent, a wireless to his
agent-in the Hawaii. town, demanding
a full Investigation of the charge
thai a Japanese, awaiting trial, has
fallen victim to beriberi, and that
other Japanese have been worked on
the. roads of the Big Island', minus
The consul general thi3 morning
said that this was the first report
which he had heard concerning the
conditions in the Hilo jail. He re
ceived the information yesterday aft
ernoon and immediately sent the
telegram in order to find out the
truth.,. As yet. no details have arriv
ed at the consulate in answer to the
message, and Consul Eitake was un
able to tajk further on the matter.
"During my trip to the Island of
Hawaii about a month ago." he said
this morning, "I heard nothing what
ever that any cuch conditions existed
in the Hilo jail, and, as I made no in
vestigation of the jail myself, 1 can
make no definite statement yet. I
have been told that the prisoners
were treated inhumanely, that one of
the Japanese prisoners had died from
beribari, and that the prisoners were
working absoluteTy naked. The only
reason that I can think of for this
iast, if it be true, is that as there are
so many prisoners in the jail there
is not enough clothing to so arounJ.
As we have no roDresentaiive in Hilo
to report these alleged conditions, if
they exist. 1 at once sent a telegram
to the officials of that city, in behalf I
of the Japanese prisoners in the jail, ;
requesting an investigation of tho
matter. As yet, I have received no j
In speaking of the alleged death of j
one of the Ja!Hino?e prisoners from!
beriberi, the Consul sai l that, ha 1 1
there been any kaih (rem this li-
ast it was probably due to tho ratine,
cf mouldy rice. Many deaths from this
cause, he said, occur in Japan at fro
ouent intervals. As to referring tho
matter to Washington in case these
conditions wero fo'ind to exist in tho
Hilo jail. Mr. Intake said that h was
not ready to talk on that matter.
The hoard of healih of Honolulu is

' If b6ri-beri has been found in the
Hilo jail, that is a matter for the
county officials of Hilo to worry atbut.
Territorial and federal," officials sta
tioned in .that city have not seen t'
to notify the heads of their depart
ments here that the conditions require
recognition and the impression pre
vails is the vivid yarns it has elicited
ftom the facile typewritter of enter
prising newspaper reporters.
"I suppose Sanitary Inspector Bow
man is on the job over there," com
mented Dr. J. S. IJ. Pratt, president
of the territorial board of health,
when asked regarding the situation,
'"but it will remain a county matter,
for the county officials to cope with,
unless Bowman finds it really serious.
But he has not sent us any word to
thai, effect yet. If conditions in the
Hilo jail are bad and official investi
gations are required, it is up t otheir
grand jury over there to look into the
"I don't care to discuss it to any
extent, because I have no direct infor
mation on the situation. But beri-beri
is nat commonly regarded as an infec
tious or contagious disease. It is
thought 'by many scientists that the
disease comes from eating rice."
Advertised as a challenge perform
ance whatever that may .be, tonight's
change of program at the Liberty
Theatre gives promise of furnishing
something new in vaudeville. "Bill"
Fernandez and "Slam" Kupa, both
possessing considerable local reputa
tion as "Broncho-Busters" have ac
cepted the challenge of Mrs. Harrl
son, and will attempt, at both per
formances tonight, to ride the buck
ing mule, "Dynamite." The terms of
the match are to the effect that the
would-be-rider must mount the mule,
unaided, and stay on it's back, In an
upright position, for at least one min
ute, and as an incentive to Increase
earnestness in the contest Manager
McGreer has promised the successful
rider, should there be one, five dollars
for every minute he conforms with
the terms of the contest that makes
him eligible for a win. Both Fernan
dez and Kupa are said to be experts
at buck-riding, but, as "Dynamite" is
also an exnert bucker some fun out
of the usual may be expected.
The balance of the bill will be com
posed of new pictures, "Electra," De
lea and Orrna.

"Checkers," .Wirk La Shelle'a great
play of thf race-track, will nold the
boards at the Bijou theatre this week,
beginning tonight, and from the in
creased cat and specially painted
scenery, it is evident that this produc
tion will be the best which has thus
far been offered by the World's Fair
Stock Company before a Honolulu aud
iance. Those who have seen "Checkers"
are ready to admit that it is the best
of LaShelle's productions, and in play
ing it, the popular stock company has
outdone all previous records in stage
craft. The famous race track scene
will bo in evidence as well as over one
hundred extra people and six real, spir
ited horses. A novel racing effect has
been arranged and no doubt will prove
to be the feature erf the entire play.
Miss Brissac will be seen in a charac
ter which will add to her honors, while
Howard Nugent and John Wray will
both have strong parts.
Stocks continue to iook up, in pcint
of activity, as if the- prospects for
the first half of the year had been
duly discounted. Haiku has its first
trimming following dividend reduc
tion recorded today, selling down by
the tremendous slam of ninety points
to 125 for 10 shares, the last previ
ous sale having been 215. Against
this is an advance of 1.50 in Hawaiian
Sugar, 70 shares in four unequal lots
being reported sold at 35.50. Ha
waiian Commercial is shaded down a
quarter point to 32.75 for two blocks
of 50 each reported. Oahu is un
changed at 23.50 for 95 shares in four
unequal lots in recess and 15 and 10
shares on the board. Pioneer is un
changed at 2C.50 for 25 shares in
recess. Oahu Railway remains at its
reduced rate of yesterday, 135. for
25 shares. Besides the sales of Oahu

was $2000 Hilo Extension sixes at
