Amuck of the Sheriff.
Sheriff Rice came back from Ko
loa Tuesday with a moonshiner
and his outfit, caught rtdhanded
When the Sheriff was acting as
peacemaker in Koloa district some
time ago, there was a decided
spirituous odor to the several gar
risons, lie did not have time to
investigate tho source of the supply
ut the time but decided as soon as
opportunity occurred to look a
little into the matter. For that
reason he left a man behind who
was to find out all there was to
know about the matter.
Tuesday tho Sheriff received a
message from his man that he had
a lot to tell in the matter and there
fore set out for Koloa and his help
er bright and early. Arrived at
the place appointed he was told
that a certain man bv the mime of
John Paris was the ono who sold
md possibly manufactured the
stuff. The Sheriff -telephone down
to his Deputy at Koloa for a police
man, but the whofe force was out
serving jury warts-tnts. Ho got hold
of his man Tanaka from Lihuc,
however, and set out for Paris'
house some three miles up the L11-
Mrs. Paris was the only one at
home when the part' arrived but
the odor of okolehao was there and
a search also discovered the source
of the fumes. The woman got
scared when she saw the head of
tho police himself enter the pre
mises and told him that her hus
band and a Chinaman by the
name of Ah Fa was manufacturing
the stuff another, three miles up
the gulch, they could he found at
Akama's a mile or so above.
The Sheriff, Tanaka and the in
former trudged on and finally ar
rived at the place designated. Aka
ma was the only one at homo.
however, and loudly protested his
innocence -liul ignorance of any
wrong-doinc;.' When he fancied
the police i.ad an eye for the vinw
and nothing else he tried to empty
a bottle behind the house. This
ho should not have done as the
eagle eye of the searchers wa's upon
him and one whiff at the stuff was
enough to reveal the name and
quality of it.
The Sheriff ordered Tanaka to
take the man along, in order that
he could sliowld them whro the
real source of supply was located,
tho he had his misgivings about
amount of confidence he could
place in him.
The capative didn't have much
to say but the Sheriff found indis
tinct trace of travel along the
stream and followed it until he
came to whore the gulch divided in
two, one going to the left and the
other to the right. Here he asked
tho pake which was the right and
was told that the left ono was the
one leading to the place in search.
Tho Sheriff promptly concluded
that the one leading to the right
was the right one and therefore sent
his two men and the pake up that
gulch, wliile he himsell made some
recognoitering in the other branch.
All of a sudden he heard 11 shout
from his men .and soon after saw
Akiuna who had succeeded in evad-
ng them sneak along the hillside
yidenfly in the hepo of getting to
the place in tima to bo able to
warn his booze supplier in time.
He hadn't counted on the Sheriff
and his gun, however, and was
very much chagrined to find both
of them in the way.
Tho unwilling ho was compelled
to go along with the men who now
had no difficulty in seeing that
thby were on the right track, as ti
bushes were plentiful and lately
cut. A little farther up they dis

Lahaina is the fortunate recipient
of a new park and children's play
ground through the generosity of
Mrs. Abbio K. Campbell-Parker.
The Nowlein Estate, known also
as the Richards Estate in Lahaina,
has been purchased by Mrs. Parker
of Mr. Geo. E. Smithies and deeded
in trust to the Board of the Hawa
iian Evangelical Association to be
used as a public park and play
ground for Lahaina in -memorial of
Fames Campbell, a well-known
former citizen of the old capitol
town of Maui.
Tho land is beautifully situated
for the purposes for which Mrs.
Parker wishes her gift used. It it
centrally located in the very heart
of Lahaina, near the public build
ings, and. only a step from the
wharf. It commands 11 fine view
of the ocean, Lanai and the moun
tain!, and occupies half a block
from street to street.
The makai ' portion of the lot,
which is adorned with some of the
finest trees of the Island, is to bo
equipped with benches and swings.
At about half of the depth, these is
to be a small playground for child
ren. The niauka portion, contains
a neat cottage, which is to bo re
paired and used as the parsonage
for the new Lahaina minister, who
has recently been called.
Mr. Samuel Parker and Mrs.
Abbie K. Campbell-Parker arrived
at Lahaina last Tuesday evening
for the purpose of visiting the es
tate. Mr. Parker invited' Rev.' R.
15. Dodge, of Wiiiluku to come, to
Lahaina and consult in regard to
needed improvements. Mrs. Park
er gave Mr. Dodge o donation with
which to begin work immediately.
She left with him careful instruc
tions as to the changes she desired,
and her plans are to be carried out
in detail. The work will lie begun
next. week. - '

with ths intention of warning his
friend. The latter emerged from
from the hut only to meet the

and an order to throw up his
hands, an invitation that he didn't
hesitate to follow.
