Held For Years In
NEW YORK, March lO.-The most
sensational predictions regarding the
results of the confession of Iierthe
Claiche, who killer1. Emil Gendron, are
being more than renlizd lu-re. 'Ihe
terrible depths of vice )vn ecunded
by the District Attorney's office are
giving up most sensational revela
tions. The corruption or imbecile
incompetency of the uolice is almost
past belief, and the ir.ves ligation
started by the girl's confession has
only just begun.
Briefly, tho sit nation revealed by
the developments of yesterdav and
today are that negroes hraded by
Robert H. Sprigys. now under in
dictment. have been conducting a
white slave traffic in live houses in
the Tendi'i lo.n. One house is only
few doors fr--m the Tenderloirl police
station. This white slave traffic un
der the domination of black masters
has been going on fifty years. Spriggs
inherited the place from his father.
That the police have permitted
Spriggs to go on unmolested is re
garded bj the District Attorney's
office as one of the amazing chapters
of the storv. Never before has the
infamous traffic of Spriggs and son
Sprigg's method of operation was
simcle but verv effective. W.'ite
women and girls were encountered
on the streets bv wmte men ami
women acting as his agents and en
ticed to saloons, where they would
be drugged. In U at condition they
were taken to the various houses
owned by Spriggs The clothing 'of
the women wa9 taken from them.
Armed guards were stationed within
and without the house. No inmate
could escape. The windows were
nailed fast. The blinds on the win
dows were held together withe! ains.
Many women fought desperately
against their fat,e.,Tbey were beaten
with fists ai,d clubs .and. kicked Into
insensibility. One woman, . for ju
stance, had her jaw fractured arid
most, of her . teeth, knocked, out. fd
having dared to disobey the . orders,
of her black master. Another, one
had her ribs broken. , ..The, minds of
some of the women, wbo have ; teen
rescued froni the bouses are affected
by the .cruelties, and , they ( crawl
around on their hands and knees like
boasts, rather than human, beings.
Once inside the. bouses it is seldom
the victims emerge ,again while life' is
in them. .There, is yet a ,long abd
terrible story to be tpld,of,the bodies
of i unfortunates thrown . jnto a box
and carted away r.i the dead of ight
from their living tomb, Spriggs has
had . in. his. employ a brutal negro
called V.Lame Joe" who was a sort of
Simon Legree and bloodhound com
bined. Vhen any pf the girls escaped
they wera run down by "Liame Joe
taken back and beaten with clubs'
t All the above story, as weird "fts
.anything produced in fiction or even
suggested by melodrama, is based on
the actual facts the bistrict Attorney
pas oeen garnering, tne enure ex
posure. when It'eomes lii 'court' 'with
all. its hideous details,' ' will thake

Bury a Crow Brave Aliye
. . . ... ..
Butte (Mont.), ' March 9. Indians
who have reached liiluugs from ;the
yrovy reservation tell 01 the burial
alive of Big Rock, a young Crow buck
Big Rock had been ill for some time
and yesterday tha medicine ' men of
the trioe pronounced the warrior
dead and ordered the body interred
with all dhe tribal honors "f the Crow
nation. , ' " ' ' 1 1
, The rjtual provides that the squaw
must mourn ror trie aepartecr over
his freshly filled grave, and while this
part of the ceremony was being com
plied, with by ,Mrs. Big Ruck she
heard her supposed dead lord making
desperate efforts to get outj of his
grave. The mpund of the shallow
grave heaved again and again, and
the terrified squaw fled to the tepees
amVgave the a.la,rm, , .
The Indians at once opened the
grave,. to find that Big Rock had
kioked Jin thq top of. his, coffin" and
burst the sides in his freuzied .efforts
ito escape hia horrible fate. He.' had
clawed his. face, and pulled out his
hair ; V" .Tfaf extinct,, however,
Satisfying them3e(ve,s that Big Rck
was, dead, for a certain tyv theludians
re-.interred . tbfl body in the same
grave, and the squaw was permitted
to resume her mourning.
For Hilo Assured.
Hilo is going to have a inenpple
cannery. That Is settl -a beyond a
doubt. More tlmn enough money
has hern promised to as?. ore the sue
res of the undei tiiking. and tlie
promoters nnd stork subseriN-rs tire
enthusiastic over the outlook, both
from a pecuniary aspect in the ex
pected profit to the stock fubscriber
and also to the opportunity thereby
given to the holder of fertile land in
the District, of Hilo. The enterprise.
Instead of being regarded as in cp
position to the sugar interests of
the island, is to be encouraged and
assisted by t.ie enne planters. The
sm all farmer will have his ''pineap
pie patch" and will find a profitable
and ready sale for all the luscious
pines he cun raise.
Olaa will be a fruitful source for
canning material, as the pineapples
grown there have a delicious flavot,
and 'can' be readily ' transported to
Hilo by the railroad. Hilo is ad
mirably situated as a location for
such a cannery, as there is a down
hill haul from any place on this side
of the Island of Hawaii, and pines
are not injured by rough transpor
tation as are bananas.
It is probable that the company
will send teams regularly out through
the country districts north of Hilo to
gather up the product of the small
farmers along the line during the
An expert cannery man will be
brought down from the coast to have
entire charge of the plant, aud em
pioyment wi!l be furnished to a larp e
number of hands in Hilo. .
There is large and growing .de
mand fur canned pineapples at t1'
coast. In fact, the demaud now is
far from supplied.
Portuguese citizens are na'ural
gardeners, and it is thought .that
great many of them will go heavily
into the business at once. '
Among the 'Hilo' 'subscribers' and
backers ara Mr. C." C. Kennedy. Mr,
JohnT. Moir, Capt. Pierce',' Mr. E
N., Holmes, Mr. L. Turner, Mrv H.
Vicars,- Mr. H. V. Patten, Dr.
Henry Hayes.' Judge F. S. Lyman
Baker and Mr. H. E. Kelsey, and
from the country the. heaviest sub
scribers are Louisson Bros, and K.
A number of these gentlemen
have been holding meetings in the
rooms of the Board of Trade and
discussing the plans and methods to
be pursued in beginning operations
A matter 'of detail, which ha i pro
voked sdme'discussion,' is whether
land should be owned by the company
arid planted in' pineapples, or wheth
er thh should be left entirely in the
hands of the independent farmer. It
has' finally ' been "suggested that a
small tract, say of about twenty
acres, be acquired for a 'few yebrs
to be used as" a' nursery to furnish
young ''plarits'tb' the grower who is
jiisV beginning to plant! ' Articles of
incof poratibn ' have' been 'prepared
ana at tne Drst meeting or tne stocb
holders by laws will be submitted
aricT a ' committee appointed to go
over them and advise approval or
. ll win oe seen mat tne best men
of Hilo have taken hold of this matter
in earnest, and,' furthermore, that
men of means from all over the is
land are putting their money up to
gaurentee the success of the under
taking as well as a large number of
ft is desirable that as many .small
investors as possible be asked to
subscribe for stock, and from among
these many growers of pineapples
will be found.
By the proper cultivation of the
soTl small tracts' of land can be made
to produce a large revenue to the
grcwer by the raising of pines
more profitable, in fact, than from
any other source,' unless it be from
taro; but tn taro the demand is very
fluctuating and limited, while, when
the cannery is bull V there will be
an unlimited demand for all the pines
that can be furnished. '
Mr, L. A Andrews, who started
the movement, is going to Waimea
to take charge of the Parker ranch
at the end of this month, but before
he goes he expects to, have the eu
tire matter on a good footing, and
those who have already subscribed
for stock will then select some man
of tried honesty and ability as a
promotor to carry to completion the
work so well begun. Hilo Herald

1 Said To Be Shaping
Under its heading "People Talked
About" Leslie' Weekly for March 8
publishes a photograph of Volcano
Marshal and the following detail . of
his article in the Shanghai Bund that
was republished by the Bulletin: ;
: What American diplomacy .could
not do in China, in checking the boy
cott Of Americans and American
products, has been practically ac
complished by the pen of that fear
less American in the far East
Volcano Marshall. Seldom, if ever,
has anything been written approach
ing in severity Marshall's arraign
ment of Chinese character, appear
ing in the Shanghai Bund of its issue
of December 31st last. Marshall
was in the thickest of tho Chinese
antiforeign riot on December 18th.
On Nanking road he was assaulted
by the mob of 3000 infuriated Chinese
that subsequently burned the hand
some police station, attacked the
city hall, and looted and wrecked the
hotel annex. In his article he uses
this incident as a bludgeon to cudgel
the Chinese. Marshall, -in conclud
ing his merciless caMtigation, pro
poses a toast to his "Mongolian bre
thren," to be drunk "standing and
in silence." Tne toast is: "Ou with
the boycott!" which has since become
the slogan of Americans in China.
The article, while it arroused great
indignation among the Chinese, also
caused great consternation among
their high officials. Placards on the
walls in the native city, calling on
the Chinese to boycott American
goods, were torn down, and the boy
cott in the great commercial city of
Shanghai, where it had its inception,
is on the wace. Mr. Mat shall was
editor on the first and only American
newspaper the Shanghai Times
published in China. Ou the paper's
purchase by an Englishman ho retired
as editor. As a writer Mr. Mar
