GUILTY OF GAMBLING.
A well known character by the
name of Lono, who claims to he a
minister of the gospel was arrested
Saturday, together with his wife
and several boys on a charge of
gambling for money. .
The wife and the boys all plead
guilty and had seutenco suspended.
Lono plead not guilty and de
fended his own case.
The Court recognized an old
offender in the gentleman and sen
tenced him to pay a fine of five
dollars and costs.
Lono was formerly a hack driver
in Honolulu and finding there was
more money in taking up collec
tions for the church than following
the life of a jehu he assumed the
garb of a minister and started out
to solicit funds. After he had
worked the Honolulu field he re
moved to Waihee and during part
of the week would work on the
plantation and the rest of the time
could bo seen with a biblo under
his arm and a small hand bag in
his hand. He went from plnce to
place asking for funds to build a
church in Waihco and collected
considerable money but it was
noticed that the smell of gin was
frequently on his breath after mak
ing a collection and further that
he took sailors and men of ques
tionable character to his home.
This went on for sometime until
he was thrown through a window
from the upper story in his house
in Waihee by a sailor whom he
had steered to his home for unholy
purposes. The next morning he
beat his wife and was fined fifteen
dollars by the district magistrate.
He then left for Hamakuapoko
and lived there for some years
soliciting funds for the church as
ho said. His next move was to
build a church near Kaanapali
and tried his old tricks at this but
was not so successful in his opera
tions as formerly. He approached
Attorney D. H. Case and stated
that ho wished him to subscribe

the sum of five dollars toward
building his church there. Mr.
Case placed his name on the list
with the written proviso that the
amount was to be paid on the com
pletion of the church and on the
receipt of a statement from some
reliable person of Lahahui that the
church had been built. A few
months afterward Lono appeared
on the scene and announced that
the church had been completed
and asked for the money but as
Waiaholo, the plantation police
oflicer of Lahaina stated that no
church had been built Lono exerts-
edthimsclf and departed.
Last fall he again approached
the County attorney and asked for
funds to repair a native church
near naniaKuapoko. un beins;
questioned he stated that Rev. II
B. Dodge as the custodian of the
funds. Mr. Case thereupon drew
up a check made payable to Rev.
K. 15 Dodge only. 1 his was too
much for Lono and it is n:ore than
probable that he will not solicit
funds from Mr. Case again.
For borne months ho has been
living below the old depot and if
reports are true the police would
do well to keep a sharp lookout
over this fellow and his wife.
A very pretty wedding took place
last Saturday evening at the home
of Captain and Mrs. W. E. Bal,
where Miss Emily Bal and Mr. A
Garcia were united in matrimony
by Rev. F. Maxnnin. Miss Mary
Bal, a sister of the bride was the
maid of honor and Mr. John Gar
cia supported the groom.
After the wedding a luau was
served at which sat a number of
fricnd3 of the young couple and
who all join in wishing them a
very happy married ljfo.
Mr, and Mrs. Garcia will make
their homo in a pretty cottage re
cently built by Mr. Garcia at the
head of Church street.

LONDONS PARTY RETURNS.
The Jack London party, consist
ing of Jack London, Mrs. London,
L. A. Thurston, Mrs. L. A. Thurs
ton and L. von Tempsky returned
Wednesday from a trip through
the cratur and around east Maui.
London expressed himself as be
ing delighted with the trip and
was surprised that more was not
known of the beautiful scenery that
is to be scon on the trip from Kau
po around through liana, Nahiku,
He said it was not his original
intention to stay so long on that
end of Maui but finding so much
of interest ho prolonged his trip.
The trip is not a difficult one for
those who can ride horseback but
when a road is built around that
end of the island it will mean that
thousands of people will visit the
island yearly to sec the grandest
scenic views of the Territory.
The party left for Honolulu on
the Chuidide Wednesday.
