Accident to Boilers Tied Up
HONOLULU, April 20. Hono
lulu was yesterday given an oppor
tunity to appreciate thd good service
of the Honolulu Rapid Transit Com
pany such as it has never experienc
ed before. Two seemingly unavoid
able accidents at the power house,
one in the morning and one in the
evening paralyzed the system for
several hours and made people walk
to and from church or seek hacks
and automobiles; and in this ad
ditional energy of walking or the
additional expense of hiring rigs
they were enabled to appreciate
what the cars of the Rapid Transit
system mean to them.
At 9:15 o'clock in the morning a
lower tube in boiler No. 1 in the
Rapid Transit power house, Alapai
street, burst and that boiler was put
out of commission. -Fortunately
nobody was hurt in the morning
except that one of the firemen was
slightly scalded about the hands
Less than ten hours elapsed when
a similar accident occurred and two
men were hurt.
Nothing could have been a great
er surprise than the bursting of the
lower tube in No. 1. It was only a
few days ago that the boiler was
cleaned and everything that is re
quired to be done by ordinary regu
lations in the conduct of boilers had
been done, and more.
All the chief engineer can say in
this connection is that there may
have been a case of crystallization
in the tube which 'caused the
trouble, crystallization through
vibration, or otherwise; there is no
means of arriving definitely at the
cause, the unfortunate occurrence
being one of those inexplicable
events which occasionally take place
in spite of the best regulated obser
vation. Of course the morning accident
affected the Easter Sunday morning
church crowd and, as luck would
have it, the second accident, came
in the evening just about the time
when it was up to the cars to handle
the home-returning church crowds.
But it must bo said for the manage
ment of the Rapid Transit that
could be done was done to alleviate
the inconvenience occasioned the
public by those remarkable ac
cidents. . .
Announcements were made in all
the churches to the effect that the
car system had been seriously affect
ed by an accident and people were
advised how to connect with those
cars which wero running.
Manager C. G. Bivllentyno and
President E. Tenney Peck whisked
about in an automobile, as fast as
the law would permit, notifying
cars to go to the barn or continue
as tho case might bo, and leaving
notices at the churches and, this
being by no means the least of their
consideration, personally calling on
the bravo men who wero injured in
the accident of the evening.
It was about G:80 in tho evening
when a lower lube in No. 2 boiler
burst and the engine room of tho
power house was for a few moments
filled witli steam.
First Assistant Engineer Frank
Boycs, a faithful and trusted em
ploye and a man of ready resource,
realized in a Hash what might happ
en if the' fuel-oil feeding apparatus
was allowed to run after tho escap
ing steam had extinguished the
llame. Ho realized that there was
Attorney gels Lum Sing off
Monday was set as the day on
which Lum Sing was to bo tried on
a charge selling opium without the
formally of a physicians prescription.
The case was not an unusual one
in any way except as to the number
of tins of opium which iithis case
numbered ninety and represented
about seven hundred dollars in
The complaint charged the defen
dant with selling opium to Ah Wa
while the complaining witness testi
fied his name was Ah Wai.
Attorney J. L. Coke represented
the defendent and of course took
advantage of the er,ror and succeed
ed in getting the defendant dis
charged and permission to remove
As the authorities were particul
arly anxious to hold the opium or
at least know where it was taken
the Sheriff Saffery went out to Ihe
hack where the opium was placed.
Attorney Coke invited the Sheriff
to take a ride with him and the
two and the opium wero start
ed to the residence of the owner
of the opium. On reaching the
place the hack was stopped and
the Sheriff, apparently thinking
that the opium was to bo delivered
there got out and went into the
house. As they did this the hack
was driven around tho block while
a frantic police officer ran with all
his might after the hack but as he
is an unusually fat man and never
noted for sprinting ho soon fell by
the wayside exhausted by his un
It is said that the opium was not
taken out of tho hack 'during the
trip but returned to Market street
and on the return of the hack two
police officers asked where the opium
was. Mr. Coke replied in tliesc boxes
pointing to the boxes in the hack.
The officers did not believe he meant
what he said and went away look
ing for the opium. The opium was
taken out right under tho noses of
the police and much of it is now
probably gone up in smoke.
The Chinaman is again under
arrest and his trial will come up
next week but it is dollars to dough,
nuts that the opium will never be
the possibility of the running oil
geiferating gas in the chamber of
supply and being ignited by the
ljeat of the boilers, thus possibly re
sulting in an explosion that might
greatly injure property and might
mean several lives.
Without a moment's hesitation
he waded through the boiling water
and scalding steam that was flood
ing the cement floor and filling the
engine room and, reaching the oil
regulator, turned off the flow, sus
taining very painful though not
necessarily serious scalds on his feet,
ankles, legs, hands and arms.
I'ireman J. Brockman was the
first to suffer in the evening's acci
dent, ho happened to be directly in
the course of tho spouting steam
when tho lower tube in No. 2 burst,
and he got it fairly in the small of
