What camo' near being the most
seiious fire ever experienced in Wai
luku occurred in the garage, pwned
by Dan T. Carey, on Tuesday night.
On the return of the automobiles
faom the slcalnor at McGregors M.
II. Mcdeiros took the ear he was
driving to the garage where he
stopped the car at the place where
the machines' are washed. It was
noticed thai the car was not acting
right and there was an occasional
back five. Tho driver brought his
car to a stand still and turned off
the switch but before the engine
stopped there was an explosion and
lire started m the dust pan under
In a short time there was a blaze
entirely enveloping the engine.
E, F. Dcinert and II. M. Coke
advised running the car out of the
shop as the fire endangered the en
tire shop and the live automobiles
in tho shop at that time. Before
this advice was taken there was an
effort to extinguish the lire but
when the flames had extended to
the 'gasoline tank and all of the
front bed of the machine was afire
tho car was run out and much sand
spread over the parts in order to
extinguish the fire.
The sand was of great service in
putting out the (lire on tho Hat parts
but of no service on the walls.
The hair cushions made a great
blaze and a hot fire and the wood
work'under them was, entively burn
ed out and the soltleron the twenty
gallon gasoline tank was mojtod off
while the top of the tank was a
mass of llamos and live coals.
A stream of water was kept play
ing on the burning cushions but no
great benefit seemed to be derived
there from and when afl hope seem
ed futile and certain loss of the car
was predicted and an explosion was
momentarily expected, which would
have meant the death of a number
of persons, Dan T. Carey throw a
large quantity of water on tho flames
and extinguished them all as sud
denly as they had occurred.
, At the time of the fire there were
over ton gallons of gasoline in the
tank. The blaze was under tho
tank and running up one side and
there was a great fire and much heat
just on top and now it happened
that the tank did not explodo and
cause the death of a number of peo
ple by burning will never bo ex
plained. During the whole time .that the
fire, was in existence Mr. Carey, D.
II. pavies, and two Chines'o em
ployees at the garage worked
heroically to extinguish tho fire.
Tho car was much dainaged but
to what extent is not yet fully
known. It is evident that tho car
must bo re-wired, new wood work
in certain parts, much new up
holstering, and repainting.
Whether the machinery is dam
aged and to what extent is not yet
Tho car was insured for about
fifty per cent of its value.

to Save Child
Hawaiian Boy does Brave
Honolulu, March!) An unusual
act of bravery was performed yes
terday afternoon by Robert Okeo
in rescuing a two-year-old child
from a runaway rig", a piece of
daring which was the more com
mendable because of tho danger
the young man ran of losing his
own life. Tho runaway was not
without its tragic side, however,
for just about the time the child
was rescued, the horse collided with
and knocked down Thomas Lind
say, the jeweler, who was so severe
ly injured that he was convoyed at
once to the Queen's Hospital.
The horse and buggy belong to
tho Club Stables' and had been
hired by Mr. S. Honigsberg of San
Francisco. Mr. Honigsberg had
just returned frbin the Haekfeld
wharf, his little boy being with
him. On driving to the Haekfeld
office, Mr. Honigsberg stepped out,
tied the horse and then stepped
back to gn4iis boy. Just then a
watering cart passed by and, some
water spraying on tho horse's legs,
the animal bolted, tearing away
from his bridle. Ho dashed up
Queen street, up Alakea, then to
King, and finally swung up Fort
street, and, when near the Club
Stables, turned into I'auahi street.
It was there that Robert Akeo de
cided to rescue the child, which
was clinging to the seat.' Akeo
successfully landed into the body
of the rig, picked the child up and
leaped to the ground. The child
was slightly bruised in this oper
ation, his leg being cut and he also
sustained some slight scratches
over his right ea-r.
Mr. Lindsay was about to step
across Pauahi street when the ani
mal turned fiom Fort into that
thoroughfare. He was knocked
down and thrown against the wall
of a building. It was thought then
that bis f-kull was fraetuied and
that he had also sustained internal
injuries. He was rendered uncon
scious. Mr. Honigsberg followed the
horte in an auto and was overjoy
ed to find Uit boy alive and Weil.
Akeo was rewarded for his brave act
by a double eagle. Mr. Honigs
berg also made inquiries at the
Queen's Hospital as o the con
dition of Mr. Lindsay and ex
presses dee) regret at the accident.
Mr. Lindsay's wounds are deep
contusions on the back of tho head,
forehead and right arm. His skull
was not fractured. Ho was in ill
health a't the time of the accident,
and the shock prove a fatal.
