Dcctor Kuclin Hobs up Again.
Roland Kuelm M. D., is tho subject
of an inquiry received at tho Govern
or's office from Mrs. Emma Emerson,
7 West 02nd street, New York, who
among other things soys:
"I would like the marriage records
searched all through Honolulu for the
marriage of Rolando Kuchn, M D.
From information which comes indi
rectly from his bosom friend, he is
supposed to have had a wife in Ccn
tral America. If this can bo proved
it would make him abigamist and, as
an estate is at stake, much depends
on tliis information. Dr. Kuelm
claims he was well known in Honolulu
and was secret service man to the
queen, but fancy this is talk. If he
was well known thero in ISflO, 1804
or any time, I should think some light
could be thrown on his life, and 1
would like every detail of his career."
Clippings from a newspaper or De
cember 15, 100(1, containing a sensa
tional story about Dr. Kuelm are en
closed in the letter. Thoy contain a
snapshot picture of him, captioned:
"Dr. Rolando Kuelm, globe trotter,
solditr and specialist, who is accused
by her relatives of kidnaping his
fiancee, Miss Ida Miller, and prevent
ing all communication willi the
beautiful young licit ess." A picture
of a threnstory house front has this
caplon: "Tho Home of Miss Ida May
Miller. At 1210S. loth St. Miss Miller
has not been seen by her relatives for
several mouths and they aro much
excited over her disappearance."
A flash head over tin; story, with
the portrait beneath it, reads:
"Crowd at Home of Lost Heiress.
Defied b.y Dr. Rolando Kuel.u, who.
Astride Back Fence, Flourishes a
Pistol and Makes Speech Intends
to Hold Fort."
The back fence is found in tho nar
rative to be ;it the house of Miss Mil
ler. Thro was a crowd of 200 people
oeiieo oy 1110 vaiuv t doctor who i
reported in part, as follows by nn in
"I've grown this beard to frighten
people away from here," added D .
Kuelm, patting a tnrec-inch growth
of grizzled hnir upon his face.
"Willi my dog Nellie shut up
Nellie, don't baric so much I'll defy
tho world. Nellie's a good dog, boys,
and we'll standoff this mob together."
Having told about Miss Miller's
mother kicking at the back door that
afternoon, and being informed of a
supposition that the lady mentioned
was dead, this was his answer:
"That cat's out of the bag," said
said Dr. Kuelm explosively. ''She
isn't dead at all. She is insane and
has been in a sanitarium,"
Ho denied that ho was a Spaniard,
his first name being given him after
a Spanish doctor, but was of German
American descent and born in Philai
delphia. Early in life he was seized
with "wanderlust" and he had been
in South American revolutions, from
which ho went on to say as quoted:
"And I might say here that if by
any trick of fate I do not marry tho
girl I love and whose interests I am
protecting even to the damage of
my own iu short, if I no not marry
Miss Miller, I will again return to
South America and there I will stir
up a revolution and put mysely in
tho front rank at tho first engage
ment and place my body in front of
the first bullet and I will die on tho
battlefield -a martyr to love."
An account of tho career of Dr.
Kuchn in tlio story being thus,' being
about as accurate as mainland pa
pers usually are in fixing Hawaiian
royal relationships, when it makes
King Kalakaua's sister his daughter.
"Dr. Kuehn is a graduate of tho
Jefferson Medical College of the class
of 1882. Ho has been in South
America. For a short timo lie was
medical adviser to King Kalakaua,
father of the famous Hawaiian
queen. Liliuokalani. Then he went
back to Soutii America where he
was physician to a leper priest."
Dr. Kuehn told the interviewer of
attempts mado on his life while at tho
Robert E. Henderson, co executor
with Miss Miller of her mother':) es
tate, at tlio tirao had not seen Miss
Miller for hix months. He suld tho
mother of Miss Miller had been dis
charged cured from a sanitarium
and was then a music teacher, living
Miss Miller was of age and some
of her relatives declined to tako any
part in tho proceedings against.
THE LOCAL STORY.
Last January the Advertiser
a O0(l doal of matlpr ro!nt!n.
0 ""o ;
to Dr. Kuehn, on the occasion of
receiving a Philadelphia paper of
December 18 that contained an
article beginning thus:
"Miss Ida May Miller, the half
million dollar heiress whom Dr. Ro
lando Kuehn, physician to Father
Damien and Queen Liliuokalani, is
charged with hiding, has, in. all pro
bability, been In Philadelphia for the
last two months in fact, ever since
the timo that she disappeared."
Queen Liliuokalaiii, of whom in
quiry was miu'P, slated that the
name was quite foreign to her and
that she had never employed a Dr.
The I3y lander on January 13 told
of Dr. Kucha's having been govern
ment physician at Lahaina, his dis
trict including Lanai, fr Jin 1885 to
1887, among other things saying: "It
is related of him that, when Lahai
na's leading men !iad the natives all
marshaled lo vote against the king
and Gibson, Dr. Kuelm funned them
in line, with ballots in their hands,
and, by sheer dint of cheek and mag
netism, switched them over to the
Gibson side and voted every mother's
son of them for them. Tlio doc
tor was a Hebrew by race, very nat
ty in his get up and a habitual
wearer of glovei to preserve tho
pink and white prettiness of his
hands lie finally left nere to work
for the Panama Canal Ccmpany and
now turns up in Philadelphia, tho
central figure, of course, in a scan
Major Woller a few days later
is quoted ie reminiscences of Dr.
Kuehn saying lie arrived at Lahaina
about 22 years before to fill tlio posi
tion of t'overnment physician. He
had previously been a physician on
the Spreckels steam mips. "He was
only 21 years .old." Mnjor Woltor
said, "and a wild, harum-scarum
youth a nonsensical doelor, iu fact
Neither King Kalakaua nor t Queen
Liliuokalani secured his appointment
as government physician or were
attended by him."
He st iyed with the late Harry
Turton at Lahaina. Wolter said
sas'js of neglect caused Kucha's re
moval to Honolulu, where he practis
ed for about three mouths.
Brother Joseph Dutton of Kala
wao, lastly, contributed teminis
cences of Dr. Kuehn, whom ho Re
called as having visited father
Damien in 18S8. "Was here foi
several hours," Bother Dutton wrote:
"met Father Damien then; they con
versed a little. Don't think, they
met at any other time " A memo.
Brother Dutton had indicated that
Dr. Kuelm, then a resident ot Nica
ragua, attended a medical congress
in New Orleans in 1003, and neVs'
paper references to him included
quotations of a letter, apparently
from 1 allier Damien, to Dr. Kuelm
in which mention is made of Father
Damien's weakness, of Brother Dut
ton and matters rel.itinef to the
None of these authorities, however,
have anything to say about Dr
Kuehn's possession of a wife when he
came, while he stayed or wnen he
left here. This is what is bothering
Mrs. Emerson, and perhaps someone
hero may help her out. She does not
say so, but the inference from her
letter, wun its enclosures, is
the gay doctor lias married
A Suitable Cnndhlnte.
A parish cliurch In Scotland was
vacant, and tho beadle, who was
rather a pawky character, was very
loud in his praise of one uf the can
didates. This gentleman was d.ily elected,
and proved a great success, where
upon somo of the members of the con
gregation asked the beadle what
there had been about the candidate
that so conclusively indicated his

Haiku Sugup Co. Stops its
"Tho monthly dividend of tho Haiku
Sugar Co. will be discontinued begiu
ning January 2, 100S, and until fur
ther notice. J. P. COOKE, Treasur
er." This was the notice yesterday re
ceived by the local stockholders of
the Haiku Sugar Company, which
came with more or less surprise. Mr.
Cooke, tho trcasuror of tho company,
could not bo seen yesterday regard-
ing the action of the directors in sus
pending tlio regular dividends of one
and one half per cent., which have
been declared monthly for somo time,
being out cf tho city.
It is generally understood, however,
that the main reason for tho discom
ttnuancc of tho dividends is tlio finan
cial situation on tho mainland, tlio
company being unable to realize at
present on its credits in New York.
This being the case, the payment of
dividends will only be postponed until
such time as the crisis in the mbney
market of the East is passed and
business resumes its old channels.
A Matter o? iSus'iuess.
Mr. Chauncey Depew tells ' this
amusing story of an incident which
occurred during an illness from which
ho suffered some years ago,
1 had to keep indoors for a day or
two through illness, he says, and had
my bd wheeled into my bushiest
room, and dur'ng the day jsaw somo
callers. Nit;ht came, and with it
sleep, grateful sleep, rudely broken
in upon by the telephone bell. Tlio
call came from a well known New
York paper, and I answered it. The
conversation was something like this
"Olo Depew still alive?"
"Likely to last through the night?'
"I think so; I hope sol"
"Then I won't come down.
