The consuj general this 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 talk 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 such conditions existed
in the Hilo jail, and. as I made no in
vestigation of the jail myself, I 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 absolutely naked. The only
reason that I can think of for this
last, if it be true, is that as there are
so many prisoners in the jail there
is not enough clothing to go around.

recognition and the impression pre

TO 'BUST' MULE
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. Harri
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 expert bucker some fun out
of the usual may be expected.

In speaking of the alleged death of
one of the Jananpse prisoners from
eriberi. the Consnl said that, ha-i
there been any death from this iis
ast it was probably due to the eating
cf mouldy rice. Many deaths from this
cause, he said, occur in Japan at fre
quent intervals. Asto referring the
matter to Washington in case these
conditions were found to exist in the
Hilo jail, Mr. Eitake F&id that he was
not ready to talk on that matter.

planning an investigation of the mat

that Dr. Bowman, vlwi is t lie cliief san

a thorough investigation of t matter,
and also that until the l::cal board
hears from him they wiil be unable to
take any action. The jailer in charge
