Animal Show was hjl)ecid
On Inst Friday evening the ladies
of the Union CIiuitIi of Wailuku
'made quite a hit with an amateur
Those who are familiar with a
real live, circus said it was the next
best thing,. and those who had never
been favored by being at a Coast
circus, were decidedly interested in
the whole performance.
The Armory was generously loan
ed for the occasion.. The spacious
hall was decked out in circus stylo
and was admirably adapted for the
s 75 foot ring, while there was ample
' room for the eight side shows,' the
peanut and popcorn stands and the
A crowd of about 3f0 applauded
the grand entrance of the animals,
which marched .around the ring
twice to music furnished by Schra
der's orchestra. Then each animal
was separately called by King Mas
ter Davis. Wonderful intelligence
'and marked ability were displayed'
by all the strange birds and beasts.
'The bear was particularly bearish,
and the dangerous ostrich,- which
could only kick forwards, came near
puttvng the whole show into con
fusion. The race between the giraffe
' and the elephant, though naturally
slow, and the stunts at teetering by
the crane and frog, with clown
Howell to assist, greatly amused the
crowd. The hit of the evening was
probably the old tramp, who per
sisted in making himself obnoxious,
nml at last was obliged to .mount
the zebra to show what he was good
During the circus an old .beggar
woman meandered among the crowd
and the witch, so well disguised
that no one knew her, cast spells
over several persons unprepared for
her sorcery. .
After a short conceit by local
talent, the circus part was over, but
such a din as then ' began on all
sides by the crieivs for the various
side shows. Peonle wore urged and
persuaded to see all kinds of novel
ties from the' horse, which had his
hertd where his tail ought, to be to
Corbaley's Turkish Muscle Dancer,
a well rigged jumping jack perfor
mance. The art exhibit of Mrs.
McKay's was one of the cleverest
' thines of the evening, while the
Mexican Bat and the booth labelled
, "Why is a Goat" gave everybody
a good laugh.
The animals in Dr. Aiken's side
show and especially the monkey
that he brought with him and his
trained dog fascinated the many
children who were present.

once tried to telephone an alarm
but failed to get central. He then
called to persons living near- the
hall and a number of men were
soon at worw with every means
ivailable to put out tKe (ire.
A large tank of water was within
i few feet of the fire and it greatly
assisted in putting out the fire.
The fire had started on the out
side of the building in a number of
old boxes where considerable rub
bish had accumulated."
The boxes were against the wall
!ind as the fire burned through the
outer wall a quick fire would have
resulted but for the fact that the
studding had been stiffened with
bridge work between the timbers
and prevented the fire from running
up on the inside of the wall.
t Withiuyless than one foot from
the lire on the inside ot tlie inner
wall was stored many barrels of
whiskev. and other liquors that
would have created an immense fire
if they had once been reached.
The building is a two story wood
en frame building and as the lower
story is used as" a wholesale liquor
house there would have been a fire
that could never have been put out
if it had once gotten a good start.

Richards after Scalp of Dis
Honolulu s June 2. United States
District Attorney R. W. Breckons
. , . i 1
was tins morning arrested on a
charge of attending the prize fight
which took place at the Orpheum
last Saturday evening. The warrant
was sworn to by Theodore Richards,
wlio at the same time had warrants
issued for the arrest of Ah Sam and
Jockey Willis, the principals in the
bout, on a charge of affray. The
cases will come up in the Police
Court tomorrow morning.
iVlthough Richards' insists that'
there is absolutely no spirit of per
sonal animosity shown in the matt
er, it is significant that warrants
callin ; for the arrest of the parties
concerned were insisted upon while
penal summonses, which would
have involved no indignity, if there
is any such, would have served the
purpose just as well.
Richards went to the police station
this morning and asked Clerk Kala
kiela to make out the complaints.
After tlfey had been made out ho
was referred to Sheriff Iaukea, who
suggested that penal summones be
employed, in order that the indigni
ty of arrest might be evaded, at
least in the'ease of Breckons. Rich
ards, however, would not listen to
the suggestion, and insisted that
warrants be issued. He said that
he took the responsibility in the
matter and that he was doing it.
He then took the warrants to Judge
Andrade, before whom he swore to
them. Iaukea then took the war
rant against Breckons and served it
personally on that gentleman. He
also released him on his .own recog
There is absolutely no spirit of
animosity- in this matter," said
Richards when hq was seen as he
was on his way to 'Andrade wjith the
warrants. "It is a personal, matter
with me, and the Civic Federation
and the Ministerial Union are in no
way involvsd. I take this action
because I have a personal desire to
have this law tested. f wish you
would state that."
United States Attorney
was served with the warrant
arrest behind locked doors in his
own office by Sheriff Iaukea, accom
panied by District Magistrate An
drade. The news became circulat
ed around the lower lloor of the
Judiciary Building, and before long
a large throng of eager watchers had
gathered around the little hallway
entrance to see the arrested United
States official go forth, with bended
head, to tho prison cell, or wherever
the Sheriff decided to take him.
But the crowd was disappointed,
for when Mr. reckons' door open
ed, only the Sheriff and Judge An
drade came out. Breckons stayed
"Mr. Breckons accepted the war
rant every gracefully," stated Iau
kea. "He will come before the
court tomorrow morning at 9
When first seen Mr. Breckons
stated that ho had nothing to say.
A few minutes later when Judge
Stanley came in and announced
that Attorneys Kinney and Prosser,
who are opiiosed to Breckons in the
Mosses Koki case, had offered to go
bail for Mr. Breckons, or render
any assistance whatever, he warmed
up and talked.
"I will do nothing except admit
that I was at the jOrpheum Theatre,"
stated Mr. Bij'ckons. "If I am
guilty of any crime, I will take any
medicine. go o prison, if neces
sary. Other than that, I have noth
ing to say now."
Enthusiastic, Crowd Witnes
ses games at Wells Par.
Last. Sunday afternoon, two good
games of baseball were played at
Wells Park. Quite a large and
enthusiastic crowd was present and
enjoyed tlie games immensely.
Tlie first game was played be
tween the Stars and Waikapusand
won by the hitter by a score of 5 to
3. Although there were threats of
a protest on the umpire's decision,
no such thing has been done, the
Stars having found that the umpire
Bcnto for the Stars pitched a fine
game, not allowing a man to walk,
but the support given him by his
team knocked his work to pieces.
Fumbles and errors cost tho Stars
at least three runs.
Tho Waikapu were the first to
tally scoring 2 runs in the second
inning and one more in the third.
The Stars evened this score in tho
seventh and eight innings, and the
Waikapus scored two niore runs in
When the time to play arrived
Umpire Boote was called upon to
yell "'play ball" but refused to do
any .further umpiring for the
league. W. F. Kaae was called
upon to take his place, and although
there were several objections to his
decisions by the Stars, Kaae did
his work well and in accordance
The econd game was between
tho Kuhuluis and the Ilcalanis.
The former won by the score of o
to 3, showing the audience that
they can play some, if given time
to practise. The Healanis showed
up weak in batting, and many
errors were charged to them.
The victors scored one run in the
first inning and two in the third
and ninth innings, whilo their
opponents scored 2-jn the sixth
and one in the ninth.
Tomorrow's games will be be
tween the Healanis and Waikapus
at 1:30 p. 111. and the Kahuaiis vs.
Stars at 3:30 p. 111.
When asked if he considered Sat
