Wailuku, Maui, T. H.
The worst scene which ever hap
pened in a Hawaiian court took plac'
this forenoon in the Police Court,
when VV. R. Siim, charged with
drunkenness, insulted the court, th
prosecuting officer and others pre
sent, and finally defied Judge And rad'1
to step down from the bench,evident,lv
with the intention of making an as
sault on him. Throughout the affai'
Judge Andrade showed remarkable
tact and patience, and it wss only
after the matter had become abso
lutely intolerable that he committed
Sims for contempt of court, sentenc
ing him to imprisonment for three
When the Sims case was called at
about 9 o'clock, Sims was not present
and his bail was declared forfeited
Shortly afterwards Sims arrived and
moved that the order declaring bail
forfeited be Ret aside. He stated that
it had been his intention to forfeit it,
but this morning he had seen an art
icle which was prejudicial to his' in'
terests, and he wanted to vindicate
his reputation by offering evidence.
This motion was granted, and Sims
then asked for a continuance until
tomorrow. The court set the case for
11 o'clock, and told Sims that in the
meantime he could subpoena such wit
nesses as he might wish to appear
for him. Sims immediately issued sub
poenas for Ernest G ruene, the keeper
of the Hoffmann saloon cigcr stand.

and immediately one of the most ex
citing scenes which could be imagined
wasentcted, the excitement lasting
from start to finish. -
"I wish to state that I am here in
court voluntarily," sdd Sims on en
"You are here because it is your
duty to be here," answered the Court.
As the complaint was being made
out by Prosecutor Brown, Sims walk
ed over to the table which has been
reserved to the prosecution exclusive
ly under a rule which was promulgat
ed by the Court a few days ago. Sims
was asked to go back to the table re
served for attorneys, but this he de
dined to do and Officer Madeiros
started to remove him.
"Don't put your hands on me,"
cried Sims wildly. "If you do you
assault me. You are assaulting me.
I appeal to Your Honor."
The Court explained the new regu
lation to Sims, "Go over where you
belong," he ended.
"Do vou mean to say that you have
made rules to say where people who
have business with the court may go?
Have you lines drawn to show people
what, steps they shall tak ?"
"Go over where you belong, Mr.
Sims," repeated the Court.
Sims still remonstrated and Brown
took him by the shoulder to lead him
to his place.
Give me an opportnnity to re-;
spond," cried Sims, but the Court re
pen ted its order, and a couple of of
ficers drained him. in spite of his
wi'.o struggles, over to his place.
During this journey Sims caught hold
of the witness stand, and temporarily
delaying his progress shouting loudly:
"Shame, shame 1"
"It is merely out of kindness to
wards vou, Mr. Suns, that I do nrt
commit vou for contempt," said the
Judge after Simis had final! v reached

admoi.ished the Court.
"Haven't you got a very strong
personal amnosiiy towards me?"
"I have not," said Madeiros.
"Do yi'U know what tininrsitv
means? Do vou understand English
einngh for that?"
"How long have vou lived here?"
"Over twenty years."
"How did you come here?"
"None of your business."
"I ask for a ruling," said Sims.
"This court shall not be turned in
to a farce,', answered the court,
Sims now objected to having the
officer standing up in the witness
stand, and announced that he would
proceed as soon as Madeiros had been
made to sit down.
" It is customary for officers to
stand when giving their testimony,"
This seemed to rile Sims consider
"I ask for a change of venue," he
said. "I consider that Your Honor's
mind is so prejudice against me that
I cannot get justice before you. I
move that this case be transferred to
the Second District Magistrate."
The motion was denied, and Sims
proceeded with his exmamination, but
"You may try to clown me as much
as you please," cried Sims pointing
his finger towards Brown. "But if my
kirts were as dirty as yours I would
go and lie in the gutter."
The Court warned Sims that he
might be committed f.-.r contempt.

ieallv, "Go ahead. If vou want to
prostitute your position, go ahead."
Sims then started to explain that be

Sims turned to the witness.

of affection for me?" he asked sweet

said. , '

The Woianae Lime Company has
lit the fires in its double lime kiln in
Iwilei, nnd hopes to keep them burn
ing perpetually except for very
rare intervals of repair.
The Hawaiian Islands import $125,
000 worth of lime n year from beyond
seas, and it is the hope of the com
pany to supply that right from the
limestone deposits of this island. To
this end the limestone is quarried at
Waianae and brought by the Oahu
Railway, about twenty-two tons to
the car, to the lime kilns at Iwilei, a
spur track running along makai of
the Oahu Prison to the kilns.
The kilns are not the old fashoned
kilns of art and poetry, fired with
wood and requiring two or three
weeks to burn and as much longer to
cool off so thct the lime could be tak
en out the kind that figures in the
melodramas, into which the villain
throws his victims to be incinerated
to a powder. The Waianae Lime
Company's kilns for there are two
of them are the most up-to-date de
velopment of the lime-burning indus
try. They burn oil for fuel, and they
are never allowed to cool. But as
the limestone in the lower part of
the kiln is reduced to lime, it is
drawn off from below and additional
limestone is piled into the kiln at the
The two kilns are side by side.
Each consists essentially of a steel
cylinder eight feet six inches in out
side diameter and thirty feet long,
set vertically. At the bottom of this
cylinder, extending into it from op
posite sides, are oil-burning appara
tus. Below these, the steel cylinder
terminates in a sort of a hopper like
construction with a sliding steel door
at the bottom, opened and closed by
cogged mechanism, through which
the lime, pure and white, is taken
out on a cement floor, where, after
cooling a couple Of hours, it is barrel
ed and shipped, or rolled into an ad
joining warehouse. Up at the top
these great steel cylinders also taper
up to a short smokestack, through
which what little smoke tnere is in
the process of burning goes off into
the air. A t the top there is a door,
through which the fresh supplies of
limestone to be burned into lime are
thrown into the kiln.
While this steel colinder is eight
feet six inches in diameter outside, it
is lined with fire brick to a thickness
of two feet, leaving the interior dia
meter of the kiln four feet six inches
The building in which the kilns are
housed, so to speak, al hough they
rise high above the building, consists
first of a cement floor built up on
piers from the coral reef which un
derlies this region. From this cement
floor is bu'lt upoue story of structural
steel, and it is on this steel structure
that the weight of the kilns rests.
On this second floor is the fil ing ap
paratus. This includes a large steam
boiler, water pumps to force frer.li
supplies of water into the boiler and
oil pumps to pump oil from a tank in
the ground at some distance away
The steam and oil are brought to
gether at. the fire door of the kilns
on this floor and atomized and vapor
iz 'd they burn with great heat in the
very cei.ter of the kiln. The oil burn
ing apparatus used is the Owens oil
burner, invented by P. J. Owens,
forferly chief engineer of the Alame
da and now chief engineer of the
From this floor the remainder of
thestructuie housing the kilns
built up of framed material to
height of something over forty feet
from the ground, thirty f?et from the
cement floor. It is from this upper
floor that the limestone is fed into
the kilns. A long inclined track
built on trestlework up to this floor
and a donkeyengiue and cable hauls
up and lowers down this incline little
steel cars each having a capacity of
The entire bui.ding is enclosed with
corrugated iron. . The kilns have an
estimated capacity of 100 tons each
in twenty-four hours. A track oj
the Oahu Railway runs right along
the makai side of this building so tha
the barreled lime may be shipped
from it direct. On the opposite side
of the track is a warehouse, also
built of corrugated jron and capable
of storing 4000 barrels of lime. To
the southerly of this building is the
cooper shop' where the barrels ar
made. Here a force or coopers un
der the direction of Julius Asca are
at work making barrels. One more
building is to be built, a storage room
for empty barrels.
The kilns have been erected by the
Mutual Engineering Company of San
Francisco, under the supervision of '
W. H. Seebeker of the company, who
is also installing them and putting
them in operation. H. R. Hicks is
the head lime burner, and V. E.
Conklin is his assistant. J. J. Belser
the manager of the company. He
has spent several months in Californ
ia studying the subject of lime and
lime burning. From ttts made, it
claimed that the lime produced
from this Waianae limestone is equal
to any lime made anywhere.
Hubbard on Affinities.
Seattle Nov. 20. Elbert Hubbard
sage and philosopher, leader of the
Roycrafters, who make their head
quarters at Aurora, N. Y., among
his great many other educational and
philosophical ventures, has taken up
the cause of the "affinity, , and in an
nterview here has made known the
fact that he is a strong advocate and
defender of the existing affliction
nown as "affinities," an epidem'c
of which is now spreading over the
country. Mr. Hubbard, while refus
ing to advise dissatisfied husbands to
abandon their better halves for ideals
of their own hearts, declares that it
is only love that makes a man com
petent in any line of work and a safe
individual for society.
Unless a man is at peace with
his wife, he is unfit for his work and
s dangerous to the community at
large," is the philosophy ot this great
modern idealist upon the allabsorbing
subject that is attracting the atten
tion of magazine and newspaper
readers of America and Europe.
Mr. Hubbard even goes so far as
to place half the credit for his great
success in life on bis present wife.
That she has been an absolute essen
tial in his works and teachiugs, Mr:
Hubbard says he is positive. He
also believes that iu order to accom
plish results, all men must be in love.
Mr. Hubbard says: '
"I believe that unless a man and
woman are a ill ni ties, tbey are not
mariied at all. They must comple
ment each other. A certain man is
made for a certain woman, and a cer
tain woman is made for a certain man.
If this man cannot- find this woman,
or if this wont an cannot find the man.

This word affinity was first coin
ed about 100 years ago by Goethe,
the German philosopher. He believ
ed most thoroughly in affinities that
is, that a certain man working with
a certain woman, hand in hand, can
accomplish great results, Goethe was
the greatest man of his day and un
doubtedly possessed the greatest
mind of auy man that Germany has
"It is only love that makes a man
safe and competent in any line or
undertaking, and unless a man is at
peace with his family and in love with
his helpmate he is unsafe and detri
mental to society and the community
at large. Love means sanity.
"All the great geniuses of the
world have been lovers. Pericles
could never have built Athens with
out the sustaining love and help of
his wife. Robert Browuing and
Elizabeth Barrett were affinities and
had they never met we would never
have heard of either. Shakespeare
wote all his poems unmistakably for
an unknown affinity. All educated
men are educated by woman.
"There was never a finer example
of affinity than that existing between
President .McKinley and his wife.
But I am well aware that this word
affinity is being much misused and its
meaning terribly distorted. It is
even being made to stand for things
base, unworthy and absolutely out of
the pale of men and women who wish
to live iimple, frank and honest lives
'Above all things I believe in
honesty acd loyalty in marriage re
lations. Ou account of the misuse of
this word placed upon it by corrupt
lawbreakers, I hesitate to make
use of it. For the man who invents
a synonym for this worn affinity so
as to express the mental mating of a
man and womau, a laurel awaits."
