Chief of Detectives Joe Leal of
Honolulu lias added new laurels to
his record on this island, and has
already proven' beyond a doubt
that he is the man who should
have been at tho head of the de
tective force from the time that
Chief A. P. Taylor resigned.
On Tuesday evening he arrived
and at once secured the co-operation
of Captain Charles Lake and
ollicers H. linos, J. Pestano and
Manuel Seipieira of Kahului. They
proceeded at once to the Fong Sue
where a search was made for E.
Harris, the depurado, who is badly
wanted in Honolulu for his assault
on Parker, another colored man,
by shooting him while the two
were in a drunken row.
Chief Leal found his man and
arrested him. Harris denied his
identity, but us ho was personally
known to Leal this of course did
not go with the detective, and ho
brought his, man to Wailuku and
placed him in jail. "
On Monday Leal got word that
Harris was stowed away on the
Fong Sue, and as the ship has al
ready sailed for Kahului Leal at
once took the steamer for Maui.
As blood poison has already set
in on Parker, it may be that Har
ris may have to answer for a much
more serious charge than is now
Harris is an old time offender,
and has been in th,e toils tunes in
numerable, lie islcspecially noted
for being handy with a gun' and
with a razor. He was dishonorably
discharged from tho Iroquois some
time ago for being an all round
He is said to threatened to blow
off the head any man who attempt
ed to arrest him.

man. and didn't even handcuff

The school exhibit on display .at

signs, bead work of artistic designs
samples of cutting, fitting and sew
ing of both plain and fancy work,
drawn, work, of articles useful and
ornamental, beautiful designs of
rallia work manuscripts, bamboo
and lauhijla work and numerous
other kindsa)f work done that merit
ed attention and called forth praises
from every visitor.
The schools which sent in exhibits

Plenty of Chance for Farmer,
Honolulu, April l. Doctor E.
V. Wilcox delivered a most inter
esting address yesterday afternoon
before a. gathering of representative
men, who are interested in diversi
fied agriculture. The Doctor ' took
for his theme "Cooperative Mar
keting and his lecture showed the
deep interest hi- takes in farm prod
ucts of all kinds.
"There are plenty of opportuni
ties for diverse farming in these is
lands, and what is wanted is a co
operative association which will at
tend to the grading anil marking of
various farm products. On the
mainland the stand made by the
wheat farmers has been of the great
est benefit to them. These men had
to fight the huge (train Trust, and
well they did it, too. Even the
transportation companies tried to
kill the association, and refused to
handle the wheat grown by the
members. Still, ill the long run,
the cooperative people won out, and
received a better price for their
crops. And the consumer had not
to pay more for his loaf, either; it
was the middleman who suffered.
"The same thing occurred with
the woolgrowers; they established
their own mills and handled their
own lleeccs. 1 lie consequence was
that a first-class woolen suit would
be made up by them and sold for
about $14; ; the same suit would at
least cost 835 or $10 in New York.
And eveil at the low price of 14
the cooperative concern was able to
show a profit of IK) per cent.
"In this country there aro several
different kinds of crops and fruits
which are not worked up as they
should be. Bananas, alligator pears,
grapefruit, .cotton, rubber, coffee,
etc. should be better known on the
mainland than they are that is,
the Hawaiian variety. What is
wanted is a man in every center on
the mainland who would be in the
employ of the Hawaiian Cooperative
Association, and who would be able
to give all information regarding
Hawaiian products. There are thou
sand of coffee dealers in tin- United
States who have never heard of the
"Another thing is that all the
products that are shipped from
these islands should be marked
'Hawaii,' The grading should be
uniform, and of the best; one Or two
inferior shipments could spoil the
market for a long time. Let all the
producers get together and draw up
a cast-iron agreement to market only
a first class pack. The foundation
of a business must be good, and tho
quality kept up for all the time.
The standard must he the same, and
it is just hero that tho association
would bo of tho greatest benefit. All
complaints would come back to the
association, and the individual pack
er could then bo dealt with."
Mr. Higgins made a few, remarks
about the pineapple industry, and
gave some interesting figures. He
stated that fresh pines could be de
livered in Chicago for 05 per ton,
Tho average soiling price there is
100, and this showed a good profit
for tho grower. One shipment that
Mr. Higgins accompanied brought
155 per ton, but that was excep
tional; tho Florida crop was pan,
and consequently pines were scarce, ' '
Mr. .Morgan suggested that a com
mittee of five be appointed to con
sider the matter of forming, the co
operative association, and this idea
will be carried out. Air. Morgan
said he was much in favor of the
movement, and that he would help
it all in his power.
doubted the ability of any second
grade child being able to turn out
work of that class without asistance.
The exhibit was packed Wednes
day morning and shipped to Hono
lulu where the best samples will he
selected and sent to Seattle where it
will delight the eyes of thousands of
visitors during the fair.
Kaaliiimanii Church to Hold
Special Easter Service.
KaahumaiHi Church, Wailuku is
making careful preparation to cele
brate the Easter .season. The
Chinch will be decorated for tho
occasion under an efficient commit
tee of which Mrs. Captain Bal is

arranged. Rev. Mr. Dodge will
preach the sermon. In the services
he will be assisted by Rev. L B.
Kaumcheiwa, who has been invited
by tiio Church to become copastor
with Rev, Mr. Dodge'.
During the last two years Rt-v
R. B. Dodge has been preaching-at
the Kaahnmanu Church and at the
Waikapu Church, and bv giving
his services has been able to com
pletely clear those two churches of
debt. Tho debt at Kaahnmanu of
$515.00 has been wiped out, and a
large sum besides has been raised
to pay the ciurent expenses of the
Church, and especially the heavy
exponese incurred last year during
the convention season of the Island
In the last few months the con
gregations have been rapidly in
creasing in size, and tl)3 whole
work of the Church is in better con
dition than for a long time. The
coining of new familes has helped
the Church very much.
At the Lahaina Association meet
ing, and by the hearty expression
of both the Kaahnmanu and Wai
kapu, Churches, Rev. Mr. Kaumc
heiwa of Hana has been asked to
become copastor with Rev. Mr.
Dodge of these two Churches. Mr
Kaumcheiwa will preach alternate
Sundays at Kaahu.nann and at
Waikapu. Alternatate Sundays
Mr. Dodge will preach.
Rev. Lincoln Benjamin Kaume
hoiwa was born in Puna, Hawaii,

Kauineheiwa attended the North
Pacific Theological institute under
Rev. John Leadingham.from which
he graduated in 190:. He begap
work as a pastor at liana the same
year. His call to Wailuku will be
a most fortunate circumstance for
Central Maui Church work, as he
is a good preacher and has a good
voice for singing.
