tliat there has been a great deal
of exaggeration ia the statements
made in rcgara to the conditions in

iiot be as clean as your house or

one considers that the prisoners are
crowded together as they are. as
the result of the many prisoners and
lack of appropriations for needed ac

against him by Officer Kairai, of tho
Waiakea police, but up to a late

been no official developments. At
the office of the superintendent of
the Hilo railroad Mr. Filler could
not be found and it was stated that
the details were unknown in the office.
According to the story which is
told by the police officer he was

I The death of Frank W. Gertz, for
many years a shoeiaker in this city,
took place yesterday morning in thc
Lin Hop restaurant on Front street.
Alcoholism, working upon a badly un
dermined constitution was the direct
cause of death. Gertz had been on
the "waterwagon" for some days and
yesterday morning before his break
fast drank three bottles of so-called
' Dago red," which proved . too much
for his system and he died suddenly,
probably from heart failure helped
aiong by the raw wine he had consumed.
