THE GREAT ERUPTION.
The great eruption on Mauna
Loa which occurred about mid
night on the morning of the 10th
instant was one of the greatest out
breaks seen on the island of Ha
waii for many years. It was seen
in Hilo and Wailuku shortly after
midnight. Huge columns of firo
and smoke arose high into the
heavens lighting up the surround
ing country for many miles.
Old residents who are familiar
with the out breaks of the past say
that the outbreak was larger than
that of 1889.
The fact that the lava flow
reached the sea in three days time
shows that the flow of lava is im
mense. Former flows have re
quired months to reach the sea
while but few have gone so far.
People on the big island have
applied by wire for o"n excursion
steamer to visit the How and it is
probable that two steamers will be
sent from Honolulu soon with ex
cursionists from that place for the
As part of the Government road
is destroyed and part of the tele
phone system is destroyed by the
the lava it is difficult to get accu
rate information as to the place of
the outbreak but those who are
familiar with the contour of the
island believe the outbreak occurr
ed below the top of the mountain.
Many persons on this island are
anxious to see the volcano and will
doubtless take advantage of the
first opportunity to go to the scene
of the volcanic activity that its
offered by the Stoamship Company.
RBYMON WAS MURDERED.

Fred Reymon had committed sui

Investigation on the Suspicion
the Sheriff ordered an inquest to
A Cornoners jury wascnipanncl-
od and took two days in the ex
amination of witnesses with the
result that a confession was made
by one of the parties and two
placed under arrest.
Deputy Sheriff Edgar Morton
conducted the inquest and much
credit is due him for bringing out
the facts in the case.
Mary Ann Kaaipalaoa stated to
the jury that she and Gcorgo Kao-
nohi Auekalani were in a room to
gether when Fred Reymon came
home. They were asleep at the
time. Reymon was angered at
finding Auekalani and wont to get
0 . . .at).. n
an ax. As lie came in the woman
throw her arms around him while
Auekalani shot him.
The jury returned a verdict that
the deceased came to his death at
the hands of George Kaonohi Aue
kalani and Mary Ann Kaaipaluoa.
The woman was placed under
arrest at once and the Deputy
Sheriff of Hana was telephoned to
have Auekalani placed under ar
rest at once which was done and
they were both brought to Wailuku
whero their preliminary hearing
will bo held.

SENTENCED TO EIGHTEEN
On January 4th, James Polani
and two other young Hawaiians
were before the District Court on
the charge of larceny, At the re
quest of the County Attorney sen
tence was suspended for a period
of thirteen months and the young
men yvar,ned to conduct themselves
properly or suffer the sentence of
Two of them apparently took
the warning to heart and are now
enjoying their liberty while the
older one, James Polani was arrest
ed last Saturday on a charge of as
sault and battery on the person of
a fifteen year old Hawaiian girl
and was sentenced to six months
imprisonment 01. this charge and
on the former conviction was sen
tonced to 0110 years imprisonment
which term will take effect at the
expiration of the first sentonce.
It is the policy of the Court and
County Attornoy to. give minor
offenders an opportunity to redeem
themselves when brought beforo
the Court for the first time and
have the sentences suspended for
a long term but if they fail to pro
perly conduct themselves they will
suffer the- penalty.
This plan has been in uso in
Judge Lindsay's Court in Denver
Colorado and has been found to be
an excellent one and its adoption
hero should prove a succoss in most
cases at least.

A dispatch received last evening stated that the new flow was

from tho now outbreak is puro speculation.
