Hurt Is Still Telling Tiling
The Advertiser of the 17th has the
Lionel Hurt is still confessing. Yes
t?rdnv afternoon he acknowledged
liaviiiif taken checks which had pome
into the ollice of the Standard Oil
Company in the regular lino of bus
iness, endorsing them with Mayor's
name, per his own initials, and cash
ing them, converting the money to
his own use. He also confessed the
truthof the accusations made against
him by Mnyor, that of Laving shipped
three hundred cases of oil to Ewu
and pocketing the money. IIu re
itet ates his statement, that, the mani
pulatious of the orders and the honks
were made at Mayer's ( irection,
however, and persists in denying any
complicity in or knowledge of the
fire at the kerosene oil warehouse.
All day yesterday Chief Taylor and
ins men were working on the case
and considerable additional evidence
was secured. A 'great deal of this
points to Hait, hut there are several
points uncovered that will require a
great, deal of ex plantation from
As to the actual incendiarism at
the kerosene warehouse nothing has
as yet been discovered by the police
that they have made public. The
chase setnis to have shifted alto
"ether on the now main question as
to who is guilty of the large thefts of
oil from the warehouse. When the
whole truth concerning the thieving
is learned the police think that the
matter of clearing up thw lire my
stery will be an easy task.
A definite charge against Hart
was made yesterday he having been
detained by the police so far only on
investigation. He was formally
charged yesterday, on complaint of
Superintendent, of Public Works
llolloway, of having destroyed public
records. If any charges should arise
out of the mat ter against Mayer they
will probably be of the same nature
as have been laid against TIart, that
of destroying public records. In
Hart's confession he states that his
ciime was done under Mayer's orders
if tho charges contained in the con
fession of an embezzler are worth
Yesterday Mayer staled that he
had in his possession- the written
staleme 1 of his clerk, Hart, that ho
(Maver) hud no share whatever in
any of the shortages of oil. This
statement win written, Mayer says,
when ho had detected Hart in send
ing oil out without making any re
turns to the company for it. In
this instance, the amount of money
short was 555, restitution of which
was demanded. Hart brought in
the money from some source within
a few days. Tl.at was the occasion
of Hart's suspension, repotted yes'
Mayer professes to be not worry
ing about the ontcrme of tho affair.
He slates that lie has had nr. invest!
gation of Hart's affairs under way
for some lime, quite independent of
the police investigation. Experts
aro going over tho books and Hart's
past actions are being gone into. He
intimates that the Territorial author
itios a-e clouding the issues now by
making every possible effort to clear
themselves of any responsibility in
the matter of shortage. Concerning
Hart, he said yesterday:
"I did not know at the time that
Hart applied for the position that ho
lisd had trouble elsowhoru, but after
making inquiries about town I heard
that, ho was a fine bookkeeper and a
good ir an in the ollice, but needed
watching. I thoujjht I would give
the fellow a chance, determining not
to put any tomptulion in his way and
believing that 1 could uard against
an mistakes. I wa busy for a long
time with tho erection of tin ware
house I ere and I have frequently had
to make trips to tho other islands,
during which absoncos from tho olTko
I naturally left matters m his hands,
trustiii" him for the handling of the
orders. Everything appeared to bo
all right until recently. I refoi par
ticularly to the case of thu 300 cases
of oil for Uwn plantation.
"I told him lie would have to make
good and he made grod the $."r. I
also told him that in tho event of his
making good all that lie had taken he
would lie Immune from prosecution as
far as 1 was concerned. Necessarily
I suspended him."

The Star pf the 14th has the follow
big: Tn all probability.!. Lor Watlaoh Is
to be prosecuted for practicing medi
cine without n license.
The Hoard of Health ha been "lay
ing for" the female rock doctor for
some time, and now presumably lias
positive evidence of ilm fact that
"Dr." Wallach has been violating the
law by treating disease without hav
ing properly qualified to do so.
Tnc evidence on which Wallach will
probably have to defend himself was
furnished by the "doctor" himself in
an illustrated article in this morning's
Referee in which appears a signed
and sworn to statement by a man
who claims that Wallach treated him
for blood poisoning caused by an in
sect's bite and for which the regular
physicians had pronounced amput
ation the only hope.
President Pinkham was asked
about the matter this morning. He
said: "1 shall prosecute Wullaeh 'f
lean get evidence of his really having
practiced medicine without a license,
and this affidavit would seem to furn
ib the proof. I shall probably put
the matter into tho hands of the At
torney General at once."
President I'inkhnm talked it con
siderable length about the Wal'aeh
matter. "There is a whole lot. of
cilnies being mi.vd up in it," he de
clared, "and it i sure to show itself
sooner or later, so I don't see that
there is any good putting the matter
"I did not have my way about tl e
matter when it caine up through the
demand of the Legislature that Wal
each be allowed to practice on leprous
patients. 1 wantrd 'o acquiesce and
give the man a free hand with some
of our bad patients, putt ng every
thing connected with them absolutely
in his hands, even to supplying and
fteding them while his 'treatment'
was in progress. .At. the same' time
he was to be strictly quarantined
himself, and to be interfered with in
no way. According to the agreement
I drew up he was to have $5 per day
while his experiments were going on
.so that he should have no grounds
for any excuses after he had failed to
make good Ins claims. But in this I
was positively overridden by the
other tpembcrs of the Board who re
fused to recognize JiVallach at all.
"Of course, technically the Hoard
was right and I can't say I am sorry,
for of course a man like Wallach is a
fake pure and simple, but it might
have been belter to have allowed him
to expose himself."
During the last session of the Leg
islature a number of bills were intro
duced in the House to allow Wallach,
who makes extravagant claims to be
able to cure leprosy, an opportunity
of demonstration on patisnts at the
Molokai settlement or the Kalihi re
ceiving station. The matter stirred
up a great deal of fuss in both bodies
of the Legislature, all the native
members strongly advocating Wal
inch's claims and backed up by tho
most formidable lobby of tho session
Wallach was finally summoned before
the House, and expounded his claims
of boing able to cure tho "disease of
ages" by mysterious concoctions of
"powdered worms," "moss from
female rocks secured 1000 fett below
tho sea level," and other such things.
Tho pressure of opinion wns too
strong for the few members who did
not be'iovo in Wallach more or less
sincerely, and lie carried the House
by storm, the unconvinced members,
not having courage enough to oppose
what thoy saw was desired by the
great majority of their constituents.
The Senate also took a similar stand
and the Hoard of Health was ordered
to give Wallach a show. Then It was
that tho Hoard got stubborn and in
spito of the per emptory instructions,
refused to take any stock in Wallach,
and said so to the Legislature. This
called forth some hot scorching from
somo of the members of the House,
and both branches passed resolutions
reprimanding the Board, but this
body stood firm and Wallach was

EDITOR STAR: Sir:-Your paper
has ever been fair toward me and
now that I am ngain a topic of public
discussion, I would ask tho favor of a
little space in your columns. Every
man Is entitled to fair play, indeed
Fairplny's home is conceded to tie In
America. All that I ask for is fair
play and a chance to make good. Or,
to put it differently, I offer $500.00
and the privilege of proving mo an
impostor, to try very dear friends,
tho enemy. The last legislature
would have given mo the chance 1
wanted hut for the autocratic action
of the Hoard t.f Health. Then I of
fet ed to forfeit $1011.00 should I fail
to cure twelve cases of leprosy. Since
then m v experiments have more than
ever coii' inced me of the signal mer
its of my reined' and today! stand
ready to forfeit WOO 00 should I fail
in six months to completely cure any
12 cases of so-called loprnsv brought
to my attention by the Hoard of
Health. President Piukham recently
offered $500.00 for a "proved" cure
to the satisfaction of the Hoard of
Health of a case of leproiy. This
"proved" business left, too wide 11
loophole for the introduction of per
sonal prejudice for me to bother with.
I offer to forfeit $500 00 should I fail
to cure, such failure to be proven to
the satisfaction of the people.
1 am a working man, Mr Editor,
and grace of sneec'i and pen are, I
know, uot. trine. My heart K in my
medicine, however, and 1 am going
to light my battle to the last ditch,
supremely coiiOdentof merits and ul
li'iiatc success. I believe that I am
entitled to a square deal for my
square proposition, and 1 feel certain
that the publication of these few poor
lines in your valuable journal will
help me immeasurably to obtain the
chance to make goo I for which 1 have
so long and earnestly sought.

Man Chnng. tho Chinese chicken
thief who shot and killed a policeman
who was about to effect his capture
several years ago, and who was serv
ing a 23 -year sentence for murder,
made a successful break for' liberty
this morning, and up to the present
time has not been located.
The convict was working as one of
'a quarry gang at theMakiki quarry,
and made his escape shortly after
going to woik this morning. Tin
man, who has one hand missing, and
was therefore unable to dp the ordi
nary work of the quarry, was sta
tioned tit a switch midway between
the. quarry and the rock cusher, h's
duties being to throw the switch for
the cars to start them upon their
proper track's. His iork kept Into
some little distance from the rest of
the gang, although he was within
sight of the lur.a 1 in charge. When
their bn?ks were turned, however,
he must quietly have taken to the
brush, a thick jungle of which is with
in a few rods of whore he was work
ing. He must have been missed very
shortly after he left his post, but
Ydthoiigo immediate search was made
in the vicinity he could not be found.
Man Chong has made several ap
plications for pardon. The last was
made by his six daughters who call
ed upon Governor Prear just after
he had taken his oath of office.
Friends of the Chinaman offe-ed to
sec that he and his family left (he
country immediately in case his par
don was granted, but tho petition
was turned down.
High Sheriff Henry believes that
tho escaped prisoner has been assist
ed by somo of his countrymen, who
will try to spirit him out of the coun
try, or ele he expects to got far
enough away to commit suicide, ac
cording to a habit which two celestials
have when things are not coming
their way. An interview with the
daughters by Sheriff Henry resulted
In much apparent surprise on their
part, they claiming to know nothing
of the matter.
The police have been notified, and
a sharp watch will bo kept on de
parting vessels on which the convict
might attempt to leave-the Territory.
