Take Up Land.
Frank L. Hatch, clerk if the Fed
eral Court, has retuned from Kauai,
where he has been for several day?
past. He went to the. Garden Is
land for the purpose of receiving de
clarations of intention to become
citizens from a number of Portuguese
and Spanish immigrants, who have
recently entered tbe Territory. In
telling of his trip yesterday he said:
"While on Ke uai I took the de
duration of six Spaniards and five
Portuguese who have recently arriv
ed in this country and wish to become
crtizens of the United States. They
were all able to sign their names
and can talk a sort of pidgin English.
They were mostly men of large fatni
lies, and came from the McBryde,
Kekaha, Makaweli and Lihue planta
tions. '"Their intention is to take up land
in the Territory, and according to
the Territorial regulations they must
have taken out their first papers in
order to get the homestead rights.
The plantations, particularly the
McBryde, are anxious that the men
with large families shall take up land
and live on it, that both they and
their children may woi1 on the plan
tations "Some twenty-five or thirty have
already taken their first papers out
and have taken up land. As my wife
and I drove through the country we I
saw numerous little houses which
these people have built, and which
while plain and simple, seemed o be
comfortable and neatly kepi. In
most cases the ground around the
house had been plowed, and in some
cases trees had been planted, show-
that t be inhabitants were going
ahead in the right way. It is hoped
that others will follow suit and that
there will be a large, colony of set
tlers, who will all be permanent in
the Island and will ell be citizens of
the United States.
"They expect to grow vegetables
there, and pineapples, the latter in
particular, which can be' Fer.t to a
pineapple cannery which is not far
away and shoul'l help the men, who
work on the plantations, to make a
very good living. The 'laud which
they have been giveD seetns to be of
very good quality, and to be very
fertile. From what I saw I should
say that the experiment should be a
very good one and that it would help
out the labor question a great ileal.''
Murder or Suicide?
The Garden Island published at
Lihue Kauai in its Issue of October
the 2th has the following story.
The body of Cypriano Rivera was
found suspended from a tree at Kau
pena Tuesday morning and the.story
of his death is surrounded by a num
ber of mysterious circumstanse that
future investigations may solve or
Many years ago when the Hawa-
iians still were in business an old na
tive by the name of Keeo did u thriv
ing cattle and butcher business over
at Ilanamaulu. He accumulated
quite a little money, and as the pile
of silver dollars grew, he took it over
to A. S. Wilcox and had it change
for gold. The idea of putting his
earnings in a bank did not seem to
have appealed to him for lie buried
his treasure in ihdfc round as it later
This fact was brought out when at
an advanced age he was taken seri
ously ill. Mr. Wilcox went to see
him at his home on the top of Kapaia
hill, about the place where Mr.
Deinert now is living, and found him
pretty low. He confided to his visi
tors that he had quite a lot of money
buried, and said that he was going
to t oil him where it w,as so that it
might not be lost. Mr. Wilcox who
appreciated that Keeo was pretty
near bis ind and migt pass away
any moment urged him to tell his
secret at the time, but he said he
would wait until thu next day. In
the night he died.
A few months ago Cypriano who
had been working , for the Lihue
Plantation Co. at Ilanamaulu quit
his job i nd a few days later he con
fided to a coi pie of country men that
he had discovered nine thousand dol
lars in gold and that lie had taken
them away and buried them where
nobody could find them. His story
was to the effect that a ghost had
appeared to him one night and lead
him to the place where the treasure
was hidded, and this specter he judg
ed to be what remained of the late
Keeo owing to the fuctthai.it was
attired in heavy top boots. The
Porto Rieane tried to scare him in or
der to get him to divide the tied with
hem by threatening thit thevvVnild
tell of his discovery, mid he evidently
got frightened at the suggestion as
he disappeared from his usual haunts.
It has now come to light that he
hid himself at Kukirula occassionally
working a day or two in the neigh
borhood to earn his living. While
there he met a Portorican girl Nar
cissi by name, and got infatuated
by her charms. She was only a
young t;irl, some sixteen nr seventeen
years of aire, while he himself was a
man of mature age, and she there
fore did not meet his advance with
the response desired. Balk 3d in his
endeavors to get the girl's cons: n I
to a ma-riage lje at last held out the
flittering prospectof b.'ing a rich
man's wife, telling her of hi nine
thousnn:1. dollars that he had biried.
Dazed by these prospects she con
sented and Monday afternoon at
seven o'clock they both set out for
Ilanamaulu a foot.
They arrived at Kaupena, a small
valley beyond Ilanamaulu about one
o'clock and there Cypriano told
his sweetheart to wait for hitr. while
he went farther up the gulch to un
earth the treasure. After an hour's
wait he returned and told the girl
to have patience a little more as he
had missed the place and would have
to hunt for it a little longer. Another
hour elapsed and he told her that he
had failed to find it, and that if he
didn't surcetd the third lime Iip was
going to hang himself. The girl
waited un lil four o'clock but as he
had n.it returned by that time she
j.ot frightened and went into ti e
Porto Rican camp and told acquain
tances there of what had happened.
These chanced to be the very ones
whom Cypriano had told of his dis
covery and they afler some persua
tion agreed to go ith her and see
what bad becom eof him By this
tir.ie it was daylight and after some
search they found the body of Cypri
ano hanging to a tree in the gulch
where he had been looking for his
The Sheriff, was notified by tele
phone of the finding of the body and
was soon on the spot and had a
coroners jury impaneled.
At the place numerous diggings
were found where the unfortunate
had looked for the gold, but t.e
eviilence sustained but one conclu
sion, that of suicide.
Yesterday's inail from the Coast,
received by the Claudine, brought
word to several business men in Hilo
that checks paid them by Mr. Jack
London, before he left here, were re
turned by the Central Dank of Oak
land on which they had been drawn,
marked "Not Sufficient Funds."
Checks that had been issued earlier
by Mr. Loudon during his stay here,
havt been paid and there is adispni
ti m to believe that the trouble arises
through lax business methods on the
part of the author and gl ibe trotter,
as he is known to have drawn checks
without rilling in the stubs an J it i
supposed that amounts due liim may
not have been placed to his credit as
proinpt'y as he expected.
In one case a check was paid for
some handsome koa furniture, but
the furnitur e was not shipped pend
ing returns from the check. As
there are i.o returns there will be no
furniture in tbe London household.
There has no', yet bren time to hear
from the latest checks that l.e hsued

It was in celebration of the fifteenth

Joseph's Lean Years.
London, Oct. 25. Quite a sensa
tion has been caused among biblical
students by the discovery, by Brug
sch Hey, the great Egyptologist, of
i monumental inscription telling how
the Niie failed to rise for seven years
in succession about 1700 years before
the Christian era. A long and terri
Lie famine was the result.
B. C, 1700, is the date recognized
as the beginning of the "seven lean
years," described in the Hook of
Genesis, end ideologists ui e very in
terested in the confirmation which
the discovery gives, in hard facts, to
the famous Bible story.
The account of tbe failure of the
Nile and the continuous famine
throughout the land was told in a
number of extraordinary heirogly
phlcs, which Iirugseh lley, fortunate
ly, has been able to decipher.

students of sacred literature, to
whatever school they may belong,

Is a Myth.
The story of gambling in NeYork
today indicates that even under the
best conditions, the player cannot
"buck the game" and win for long.
Gambling houses do not exist, do not
entertain in their lavis;h fashion
simply because the professional gam
bier is inspired by a philanthropic
desire to alTrd rest and recreation
to tired humanity an. I to give the
public an opportmity to pick up
money wit bout any elf rt. Gamblers
are in the game to make their living
and a good one, ton. They know
that the chances of their patrons
winning easy money are about one in
a hundred, that all the chances ate
in favor of the gambling house keep
ers themselves. The momenta play
er enters a resort of th'.s kind his
money is as good as lost. It is prac
tically stolcu from his pocket.
Take the case of roulcttte the
most famous gambling game in the
world; which may briefly be thus des
cribed; A marble is dropped in the
wheel after it has been started spinn
ing by the dealer and finds resting
place when the motion of the wheel
permits in one of the numbered com
partments which form the outer
bank of the wheel box. These com.
partments are alternately black and
red in color. By electrical control -push
buttons concealed on the edge
of tbe table the action of the wheel
can be checked and the partitions of
the red or the black compartments,'
at the operato-'s will, can be moved
so as to prevent the marble falling
into a com purl men t of that color.
In faro the style of deal box known
as the "high layout" is a triumph of
mechanical art. Millions of dollars
have been stolen from players by Its'
use. It is larger and deeper than
the ordinal' layout, so that a por
tion of it, which does not hhi.w, may
lie below the table. It is screwed to
the table top, and cannot be taken
up in the hand for each deal, us the
regular deal box may. There is a
spring underneath, which the dealer
touches with his knee every time he
wunts to juggle the cards. The cards
do not lie even, bat the upper three
overlap a trifle, and there is a tiny
peep hole through the deal box (ob
scured from the player's view by the
dealer's left hand), so arranged that
tho dealer can see the edges of these
cards. Tho edges are all he needs to
ee in order to tell what they are. If
they are not suitable his knee touch
es the spring. The card remains ex
posed to the player's view, but those
below are shifted by one turn of a
little mechanical arm. Broadway
And here's another Irish Twister:

Mike: Au' how much did yez

for drink yez'd had yer three dollars
