President to aid Ship
WASIIfNGTON, February 21
Represonltitives Myers of Wisconsin
and Humphrey of Washington, both
of whom nre rnpmbers of the House
Committee on Merchant Marino und
Fisheries, and also of the Cong-res
sional Merchant Marine Omimis'-i'in,
had a conference with President
Roosevelt to dav concerning the sliio
subsidy bill which convinced them
that the President will lend h:a,hearty
support to that measure in the House.
The two members say they were in
sured by the President, thai, in his
opinion, tlie-subsidy bill is second only'
in importance to railroad and Pan
ama canal legislation.
They say tliev were assured by" the
President that he will use his infl'inec
to bring about the passage of -the
measure, because he believes it is due
to the Pacific Coast and the Atlantic
seaboard to assist them in obtaining
legislation which will benefit the Mid
Judge Humphreys and Soda
"Every drug store 'n Honolulu is
violating section 1!K)5 of the Revised
Laws of Hawaii for 1903 in permit
ing Crinese boys to serve their soda
water stands from which bromo selt
zer is dispensed," said Judfee A S.
Humphreys yesterday. "I knows
this because I have ascertained by
personal observation that the Chinese
boys, who are not licensed, are dis
pensing a dangerous drug to
patrons of these stores."
This is one of the laws which
passed by the Legislature at
instance of a well-known druggist,
who, it is said,, wished to keep a
competitor from engaging in similar
business on a ooruer opposite his own.
The law us passed by the Legisla
ture providing only for licensed
pharmacists to dispense drugs is as
"Section 1005. License Required.
It shall be unlawful for any person
cot licensed as a pharimacist within
the meaning of t.iis chapter to con
"duct or manage any pharmacy, drug
or chemical store, apothecary shop,
or other j-lace of business for the
retailing, compounding or dispensing
of any drugs, chemicals or poisons,
or for any person not licensed as a
pharmacist or assisaut pharmacist,
withiu tt.e meaning of this chapter
to compound, dispense oi selk at re
tail any drug, chemical or poison
upon the prescription of a physician,
or otherwise except as an aid to or
under the immediate supervision of a
person licensed as a pharmacist
under this chapter. And it shall be
unlawful for any owner or manager
of a pharmacy, or drug store, or
other place of business, to cause or
permit any oilier than a person
licensed as a pharmacist or astixtant
" pharmacis t to com pound,, dispense or
sell, at retail, any drug, medicine or
poison, etc." "
. The penalty provided for a violation
of this sectioti is a fine, upon cjuv'ic
t on, of uot more than five hundred
dollars, or impi isonmei.t at hard la
bor for not more than three months.
The section requiring the pharmacist
ti be a graduate of a pharmacy
school, is 1103. :
Judge Humphrey joints to broriio
seltzer and caffeine as two of the
drugs which druggists permit their
Ciiinese soda-water funtaiu attecd
ants to dispense to whomsoever calls
for them. Both are an acetanilid
and a deadly poison.
"On the bottle of each of these
nostrum," says Judge Humphreys,
"'the dose is prescribed, but the
Chinese boys at the various soda
fountains never take the time or the
trouble to measure out the dose n -
dhated. They f imply pour out fi'oni
the bottle Into the glass what they
guess is 'about right. To illustrate:
I dropped into a drug store the other
day and asked the Chinese boy at the
fountain for a dose of bromo seltzer.
He seized the bottie and p.iured into
a glass what I, by actual measure
ment, on the spot, found to contain a
lit'le more thau four UuspoonfuU
enoukh to have laid me out in ttn
minutes. I have had similar ex peri
ences at other fountain
'Colier's Weekly says. The full dose
of this preparation (as prcsrnbed
on the bottle is a 'heaping teaspoou
ful.' A heaping teaspoonful of bromo
seltzer means about one grain of
acetanilid. The United States Phar
macopoeia dose is four grams; live
grains have been known to produce
fatal results. The prescribed dose
of. bromo seltzer is dangerous aud has
been known to produce sudden col
lapse. "What right have the druggists
to leave the administration of these
poisons to the haphzard guesswoik
of the boy at the fountain?"
Collier's Weekly has been making
a stroiii? crusade against certain
nostrums under the title of ' The
Great American Fraud," and aceta
nilid has been one of the poisons
against which it has directed some
of its attacks.
While the Hoard of Health has been
directing its efforts to have certain
of the drug and druggist laws en
forced upon Assiatic dispensers, this
law with reference to other dealers
has been overlooked.
To Bar Out More Aliens.
Washington, Feb. 15. Senator
Dillingham, chairman of the Senate
Committee on Immigration, to-day
introduced a bill making a number of
changes in the immigiation laws. It
proposes to exclude all alien imbeciles
and feeble-minded persons and per
sons not comprehended within any of
the classes now excluded by law,
"who are certified by the examining
surgeon as being mcntallj or physi
cally defective, such mental or physi
cal defect being of a nature which
affect the ability of such alien to earn
a living"; aliens who admit having
committed a felony or other crime,
or who admit their belief in the prac
tice of polygamy; women or girls
coming into the United States for
any immoral purpose; children under
17 years of age who are unaccom
panied by parents, unless coming to
join parents, brothers or- sisters al
ready in the United States. Au at
tempt to land an alien not duly ad
mitted is made a misdemeanor, in
stead of an unlawful act, as at pre
sent. The provision of the present law
which imposes a fine of $100 on
steamship companies .for briugiug
persons afflicted with a loathsome or
a dangerous contagious disease is
extended to include idiots, imbeciles,
feebleminded persons insane . persons
and epilept cs. It is also provided
that masters of vessels carrying
aliens from ports of the United States
ti foreign ports shall furnisb com
plete descriptive lists or manifests of
all outgoing aliens.

President Sends To The
Havana, February 24. President
Roosevelt's letter to President Palma
tendering his thanks to the Cuban
Congress for its generous weddiug
giftto his daughter, said that the sen
timents dictating the splendid gift
were even more beautiful and more
highly appreciated than the present
itself. "Neither you nor any other
citizen of Cuba, President Roosevelt
added, "can rejoice more than I over
the marvelous progress and pros
perity of the Pearl of the Antilles,
Since she has taken her place among
independent nations the republic of
Cuba has maintained peaceful rela
tions with foreign nations, conserved
order at home, demonstrated a most
generous spirit toward her soldiers
who fought for independence, provi
ded ample means for education, con
structed public works and developed
her great natural riches through the
rapid progress of her people."
The letter concludes: "With the
heartfelt felicitations of your friend
and admirer of your country."
MILLION LOST IN
CAR SHOP FIRE.
Moncton (N B.), February 24. -
The Canadian Government sustained
loss of $1,000,000 by a fire which
destroyed practically the entire plai t
here of the Intercolonial Railway in
this city to night.
The Intercolonial Railway is owned
by the Government, and the head
quarters of the entire system are
located in this city. More than one
thousand persons are thrown out
of employment, and the officials of
the road stat? that the system will
be badly hampered for many months
as the result of the fire.
More than 100 passenger coaches
and freight cars in the shops and on
sidings, and a large amount of costly
machinery in the buildings, were
destroved. One of the coaches burned
was the private car of Earl Grey,
Governor-General of Canada.
The station and the large general
offices of the railroad were saved.
To please every body.
The Hilo Herald has recently
changed hands and is now edited and
managed by Mr. J. U. Smith, whose
political status is a most question
able one and needs only a populistic
twist to make it complete. We quote
his first editorial as published in the
'Herald of last week.
In "butting" in to the journalistic
field I am entering upon a new phase
life. Having always regarded
newspaper woric as a snap, i was
dumfounded at the cry by the com
positors for fourteen columns of
copy,"1 when , it always seemed to
me that about half a column of "edi
tcriala" would be all that an "editor"
would have to provide. This is truly
a strenuous life. I shall do 'the best
can, however, and if anyone is dis
satisfied I will do better than that.
For my place in politics I shall have
to'quote Justic Clinton A. Galbraith,
who Introduced me to speak at a
banquet In Honolulu, just after my
election as District Attorney for East
Hawaii on the Home Rule ticket.
He truthfully said: "Smith is a demo
crat by birth, a Republican by affi
liation and a Home Ruler by promo
tion" This statement of my political
status ought to satisfy the most fasti
dious. Those looking for "roasts'
will be disappointed. 1 shall not use
the columns of the Herald to vent
personalities, but shall try to build
up, rurtner, its reputation ior irutn
The editor and manager of the Tri
bune are my warm, personal friends
and former schoolmates, and I Bin
cerely hope our friendship will be
brightened by journalistic riva'.ry."

Fearful Punishment was
Meted Out To Korean.
Hilo, March 7. The Korean who
was tortured to death by nine other
Koreans at Kukalau December 23, un
doubtedly underwent the most diu
bolical torment ever perpetrated on
any human being in these islands.
This man was an inveterate gam
bler and an unlucky one. When his
losses had continued untill ho had no
more money, he stole $56 from his
sleeping mate and taking this money
lost it. Wben the robbed man dl:
covered his loss he told some of his
friends and their suspicion at once
fell on the Korean who is now dead
Nine of them got this man and after
beating him with sticks, secured
confession. He said he bad taken
the money and it was hidden in
graveyard. They went to get the
money and finding they had been
misled, commenced punishment th

The form and manner of this
punishment was learned only recent
ly through a confession - made to
Criminologist Doyle, who has been
here working on the case the past
three weeks. According to the con
fession, after disrobing the man they
hung him up by his hands and taking
thorn sticks, saws and knives, they
hacked at his body until he was a
mass of bleeding sores. All the time. .
while administering this punishment
they were particular ' to not strike
a vital point, as they wanted to pro
long the misery as much as possible.
After continuing this punishment for
some time the man finally fainted.
They then gave him wine to revive
him. Vhen he came to- one of them
maliciously conceived the idea of
giving the man a bath in soy, which,
when it touches a sore, causes exces
sive pain. This was done. Not con
tent with this they eventually sccur
ed an iorn and after heating it to a
white heat they seared parts of the
body. All of this tim they continu
ed giving the victim wine whenever
he became unconclous, bo as to resus
citate him, that he might be conscious
ot all of the Infernal torture. Finally,
as a conclusion to the anguish they
had kept the unfortunate iu for four
hours, they covered him with . dry
leaves and set fire to them. They
then left, and coming back an hour
later found he was dead. The body
was burled, but one of them becom
ing terrified with his recollections of
the heinous crime, told the manager
of the plantation. The arrest of the
nine men followed and they have been
in jail here since. They have been
examined by the Grand Jury now In
session and it Is likely an indictment
will le returned Wednesday. They
will then be tried at once Jbeforo the
Circuit Court, Attorney Milverton
It is claimed that these will be the
first Koreans ever tried for murder
anywhere under the United States
Government. Ontbis account, and
the fact that there are so many
implicated, gives niflre interest iu
this case thau any ever tried. Uult.
