Oi the Kahului Store.
At one o'clock on Friday morning,
Frank Vasconcellos, night watchmai;
of the Kahului Storo discovered a
faiht light glimmering in the Kahu
lui Store. Suspecting a burglary,
he aroused Manager Kirkland, and
Messrs Church, Walsh, Jacobs aud
others connected with tho store.
They quietly surrounded the build
ing and Messrs Church aud Walsh
opened the doorcf the ofiice and went
inside, leaviug the watchman at the
door. Leaving their lantern in the
oliice, they entered tho store and the
burglar ran back and broke a glass
in one of the rear windows. See
ing .Manager Kirkland and Mr.
Jacobs standing outside he turned
away from the window and myste
riously disappeared. The store was
lighted up and a careful search was
made, but the burglar Avas seen no
mo: o. i no watoumaa t-.eppui iu,
side the store for a moment, aijd it is
L-ippojed that the burglar took ad
vantage of his absence and slipped
out through the office door at which
Messrs. Church and Walsh eiiteied
tho building, it having been left open
yhen the watchman stepped inside.
Lying en the floor by the window
which the burglar broke iii his first
attempt to escape was fijund a
watch which has been taken out of
the showcase in front of the store,
and also a bottle of perfumery. It is
believed that tho burglar was dis
turbed before he had secured much
booty, as no other watcnes are mis
sing. The watch found on tho floor
is one of tho identical watches of
which tho store was burglarized by
the Chinaman who burglarized the
store somo time ago. There is no clue
to the identity of the burglar, and it
is not known lio.v he eutered the
store, unless lie stowed himselt away
before the store was closed.
