All of the members wore present.
The minutes of the previous
mooting were road and approved.
The first application lo be con
sidered was that of G. Lin Fook of
Kipahulu for a saloon license.
The license was refused on the
ground of defective bond. There
wore two well known citizens on
his bond but neither hold anv
ealcstate in the County.
The application of Soon Look
for a license for Keanae met the
same fate as there was nothing to
show that the parlies who had
gone on his bond wore realestate
An application from Otto S.
Meyer of Kaunakakai was the
next application considered. A
license was granted without opposi
tion. rhe commissioners thought one
aloon for Kaunakakai sullicient
for which reason the application of
Chang Tung was denied.
An application from the Kaupa-
kalua Wine ife Liquor Company
was considered and the application
granted with tho proviso that the
Company does not sell in bulk in
les than five gallon quantities
and that in case of their desire to
sell in bottles they do not sell in

That section of the law that

members as some feared the grant

might become a nuisance in case

by the licenses.

TORONTO, August 3. The Rev.
E. P. Mackay, General Secretary of
Foreign Missions for the Presby
terian Church in Canada, hi a letter
to Mr. Hamilton Cassils, K. C, gives
a very different idea of the Japanese
people from that which is generally
accepted nowadays. Dr. Mackay is
on a tour of inspect. on of the. Pres
byterian missions in the East, and is
now in Mancl.uria, having gone there
from Korea. He describes the Jupn
ncse Government's treatment of the
Koreans as barbarous and atrocious.
"It is oppression atrocious op
pression," lie says; VI was a Japanese
enthusiast until I came here, but I
have changed in spite of myself. They
have spent tens of thousands in writ
ing themselves up and winning the.
confi leneo of Europe and America,
and thus securing moral support and
funds. Vet in reality they are bar
barians. Their treatment of the
Koreans is scarcely less atrocious
than the horrors of the Congo.
"It would be incredible if I did not
see it before try eyes and hear it from
every missionary on the ground. Mr.
Ilulbert, who has written on Korea,
and has given his life to them, is now
in Europe trying to get a hearing for
the Koreans at The Hague. I see in
the Montreal Witness a paragraph
from Tokio dosenbiug Mr. Ilulbert
as an agitator alid American adven
turer win is trying lo make himself
notorious. That is the kind of thing
that Japan has reduced to a system.
I have not yet met one foreigner who
is not intensely indignant at the
cruelty and injustice of Japan in this

Vierra, who recently returned from
the Coast after an unsuecessfu.1 at
tempt to get his Chinese stunt on the
vaudoville circuit, has made a prac
tise lately of making himself conspic
uous at the Riverside games bv his
criticisms and denunciations of play
ers and umpire. Yesterday he was
especially objectionable in his re
mai l;s addressed lo Eddie Fernandez,
the umpire. Finally Fernandez
thought he was not called on to quietly
enuure ttie remarks addressed to
him and told Vierra that if he didn't
keep quiet he would put him oil the
grounds. Vierra retorted that it
was a public park and that Fenian
dez could not put him off.
Nothing further was said at that
time, but when the game was ended,
and Fernandez ceased to be an ofli
cial, but resumed his status as a citi
en, ho went right to Vierra, and
without any preliminary parley, let
out right and left at Vierra. Vierra
defended himself, but he was not a
match for Fernandez, and he suffered
a bad pummoling.
i no excitement in the crowd was
intense. The people surged round the
two combatants, but it was over

J. N. Kapiolio made application to
be appointed the guardian of the
person and property of Joseph N.
Fernandez a distant relative. He
claimed to be n cousin of the child but
thr Judge doubted whether tho wit
ness understood the meaning of the
word as he understood English imper
fectly and it was explained by the
Court that there is no such word in
Hawaiian as cousin.
It developed that the reason Ka
pioho wished to be appointed guar

and tho Child are now living. The
Court hesitated about granting the
request but. finally appointe ! Kapinhn
the guardian of the person of the
minor and appointed E. II. TIart, the
guardian of the property of the child.
Kapiolio and his wife have lived
together for many years and until he
left her and lived with his adopted

CAVITE, July 30. When the war
clouds were gathering thick and
dark on the American-JapEiiose liori
zon there was a feeling of iniL-ertain-
ty aud unrest with our men-of-war
gathered together in Chcfoo harbor
where they were peacefully riding at
It will be remembered how, pre
vious to the formal declaration of
war by Japan and Russia in their
late struggle a squadron of Japanesi
ships appeared without warning off
tho harbor of Chemulpo, . Korea, on
the 8th of February. 1904, and find
ins there the crack .Russian cruiser
Vanag, and tlio small gunboat
Korieetz, ordered them to surrender.
We know tho consequence of ihat

Having, this tragedy in mind, when
a squadron of Japanese men-of-war,
five in num'je'r, came steaming into
Chefuo harbor among our American
ships. Admiral Dayton instantly took
nvory possible precaution against
any surprise which would be possible
for t-iio Japanese to undertake To
this end orders wore given to have
all guns in readiness for instant
action, sights were broken out and
adjusted on tlio guns, ammunition
hoists were oiled and electric counec
tions made ready and guns' crows
given their cue. At night all search
lights were put in use. It was their
The American ships, consisting of
the West Virginia, Maryland. Penn
sylvunia, Colorado, Releigh and two
or ihreo smaller craft, did not clear
their decks for actiou, a procedure
extremoly unwiso iu tho situation
then confronting Admiral Dayton;
instead our ships showed the great
est courtesy to the Japs, invited
them aboard and receiving a great
many Japanese cadets as visitors.
These were of course restricted to
the upper decks and tho officer's
quarters aft, and were not shown
the mechanism of our breech blocks
and gun sights so important to those
v;rsed in ordance work.
As to the Americans expecting a1
light that was highly improbable.
There was some anxiety occasioned
by the fact that bv underhand means
it would bo possible for the Japanese
to do serious injury, and when it is
cmembercd that the American ships
were in a foreign port, more or less
isolated from tlie world's happenings,
owing to tlio limited cable communi
cation at Chcfoo, it can readily be
seen that tho situn tion from tho standi
point of the American sailors, offered
an uncertain future.
Therefore our shins were promptly
put in readiness to turn looso several
broadsides at the first sign of sus
picions action that everything was
so delicately carried out on the ships
of the American fleet that no un--
iiNiial precautions could lie noticed
by the many Japanese officers who
availed themselves of tlio opportuni
ty to inspct the ships which carried
the stars and stripes.
These are the facts.
