This property belongs to the pub
ic, luiving been conveyed to a chart
ered cotnnany in trust for a Cemetery
by the old Wailuku Sugar Co., then
n the ownership of the Baileys.
Mr. E. H. Builey is the only offir
er of the corporation, unless, that
is, the manager ol the V ailuku
Sugar Oo. is ex-officio a member.
The last meeting of the board was
held in 1800 or 1891. When Mr. Wal-
bridgc.'tlicii a member of the board
eft Wailuku, he informed Mr. E. H.
Bailey that be had left the charter,
books, minutes etc. of the corpora
tion in the aults of one of the
afes of the Wailuku Sugar Co., since
which time noone has ever seen them.

president of the Association, is the
proper man to call a meeting. He
expresses himself as perfectly willing
to cooperate with the citizens in the
matter and it is believed that he will
soon cu'l such a meeting.
There is, in three hours easy ride
of Wailuku, one of the grandest ard
most beautiful scenes on earth, but
owing to its inaccessibility, it is rare
ly visited, although easily reached on
horseback. The place referred to is
Ukumehame Canyon viewed from the
table lands mauka of Waikapu.
Recently the News man, under the
escort of a famous guide and goat
hunter, made the trip. Leaving
Waiknpu at six in tho morning, an
hour's ride brough't the party to the
entrance of a long ravine, about half
way between Wailuku and Maalaea
Bay. Tho ascent to the table hinds
was gradual, along a rocky trail and
several rests were required for the
horses. At each resting point the
wide area of cane lands .and distant
hill and mountain tops seemed to draw
nearer, the illusion being caused by
increased elevation. At the end of
two hours tho party emerged on the
.table lands consisting of over a thou
sand acres of level or slightly rolling
country covered-, with a deep, vel
vety carpet of nutritious pasturage
grass, and interspersed with grovts
of trees beneath which lazily lounged
bands of fat horses and cattle.
Crossing the table land, and flush
ing at intervals handsome pheasants
or flocks of screaming plover, one
comes abruptly to the edge of Uku
mehame Gulch. From the summit.
the gorge, which is simply a vast
circular basin, drops down till the
head grows dizzy in watching the
precipitous descent, so steep on all
sides that nothing but a mountain
goat can climb up and down.
The sun was floooing the canyon
with rosy light when the party
reached its summit, and far down
below on a narrow green ridge
which marks tho outlet of Ukuma
bama Gulch into' the Olowalu flats,
stood a band of tiny animals apparent
ly not larger than . rabbits. They
were at first mistaken for goats, but
upon being seen through magnifying
glasses, proved to be a band of
horses, whose si.e was diminished by
the great distance. Four silver
hands of water torrents came rush
ing and shining down the opposite side
of the canon, so far away and below
that they appeared like long quiver
ing bands ot silver ribbon, but their
distant roar and boom came whisper
ing up the gorge like the faint echoes
of a far-off sea beach.
Looking off across the canyon
Olowalu Plantation lies far' below
like a painted picture belted by the
endless blue sea, from which rises
further off, the complete outline of
the Island of Lanai.
The grandeur of the entire scene.
as viewed from the bluffs above, is
worthy of half a world's journey and
this spot will one day rank among
the most noted scenes on earth.
Ah Ml Bribery Case.
Tho case of Ah 'Ml, charged with
an attempt to ,tr)be Policemen
Sequiera of the Wailuku force was on
trial several days this week, before
Judge McKay, District Magistrate
The case for the prosecution briefly
was) tha Ah Mi offered and police
men Sequeira accepted $25.00 a bribe
to induce Sequeira not to interfere
with a pnknpio game said to be con
ducted by Ah Mi at Kahului. As
soon as dequeira received the money,
he placed Ah Mi under arrest in the
presence of Sheriff Baldwin and
Deputy Sheriff Suffery, who had been
concealed witnesses of the transact
Ah Mi does not dny giving
Sequeira the money but claimed that
he lent Sequeira the money to buy a
horse, and introduced a numoer of
witnesses to prove that Policeman
Sequeira had solicited the loan.
Although the case was ably defend
ed by Attorneys Coke and Aluli yet
and at its close on Thursday after
noon Judge McKay committed Ah
Mi for trial under $500 bonds.
It is an open secret that a paka-
pio game is running at Kahului, with
patrons at Wailuku, Kahului, Puu-
nene ana other places, liut the
police force have great trouble in
finding" evidence to convict. The
Chinese are quite shrewd iu the man
ament of such things. The ordinary
joint is generally up stairs, and only
to be reached through several doors
at each of which a guard is stationed
with a special password for that door.
A burning brazier is kept, in the
room, and at the alarm, in case of a
raid, all tickets are put in the fire
and converted to ashes instantly, so
that when the police reach the room,
they merely find one or two sleek
Chinamen demurely smoking or read

The Fullerton Arrives.
The oil-carrier Fullerton, Captain
McDonald, arrived off Molokai on
Wednesday, and anchored at Kihei
on Friday, 151 days out. On Saturday
the work of pumpiug out cargo was
begun, and continued without inter
ruption for 48 hours, when the Fuller-
ton was empty, and ready to clear tor
the coast, sailing on - Tuesday morn
ing. This is the fourth trip of the Ful
lerton in five months, two of the car
goes being unloaded at Kahului and
two at Kihei. .
Capt.McDonald states that on leav
ing San Francisco, his ship was ac
companied by a flock of sea-gulls
which came two-thirds of tho way
when all returned save one gray old
fellow, who concluded to visit the
Islands. Off Molokai, this gull, left
the Fullerton, and all day Friday, he
was seen flitting along the beach be
tween Wailuku and Kahului. On
Sunday morning he took his bearings,
flew across the isvhmus and rejoined
the Fullerton at Kihei, and left with
her for the coast on Tuesday.

Mrs. Drusilla Lamb, 87 years of
age, died last Saturday at Malulani
Hospital, where she had made ber

day afternoon, the funeral being held

band having been employed up to the
time of his death as a carpenter and

largely to the support of Mrs. Lamb
during her declining years. She had
been quite feeble for the past several
years, and ber ueain was not unex
