Non Visit of Congressmen
to Hana Explained.
The following letter from R. O.
Matheson, assistant secretary of the
Cieneral Committee for the enter
tainment of the Congressional party,
has been received:
Honolulu, T. II., Sept. 22, UK)!).
Mr. W. P. Haia,
Chairman, Hana Knt. Com.
My dear Mr. Haia :
On behalf of the Central Commit
tee and of those members of the
Congressional Party who failed to
and at your pretty port, 1 want to
express regret for the fact that your
committee and so many of the good
folks of your district were disap
pointed on the morning of Sunday,
September Pith. On the other hand,
I want to congratulate your com
mittee on the fact that those Con
gressmen and others who landed a
Hana and took the overland trip
were unanimous in slating that next
to the visit to Kilauea the liana trip
was the best thing in the whole
Territory. You probably know by
this time from Mr. Aiken that he,
Senator Smith, and others including
myself, did everything that was pos-.
sible to induct' Mr. Kennedy of the
Inter-Island Company to make a
stop of at least an hour at Hana so
that we could come ashore and par
take of your generous hospitality.
Kennedy, however, absolutely re
fused to hold the boat there giving
as his reason the fact that the crew
of the Manna Kea had been worked
overtime, and on Sundays and holi
days!, and wen,1 entitled to at least a
portion of Sunday in Honolulu.
When Mr. Aiken took a list of those
who desired to make the Hana trip
about twenty-live of the party asked
to be included. This was done on
the way from Honolulu to Maliuko
na before the party had been tired
out with their sight-sec'njgand many
arduous trips' on tin- big island. As
you know, most of the twenty-five
backed out when the Mauna Kea
reached Hana so early on Sunday
morning ami you can hardly blame
them for so doing. The party was
so fatigued in fact that several of
them diil not hind on Maui at all
but came direct to Honolulu. Try
ing to cover the important points of
this Territory in ten or twelve days
proved too much for the average
Will you kindly convey the re
grets of the Committee, to the people
of Hali.i for having to disappoint
them and us through the inability
of the Congressional party to at least
landing and seeing Hana, and also
thank them on behalf of .the Central
Committee for the hard work under
taken to receive the party, and for
the. hospitality they evidenced in
Ycry truly yours,
R. 0. MATHESON,
Asst. Secretary, Gun. Com.

Coroner Enquires Cause of
Death of Old Hawaiian.
Sheriff Saffery enipannelled a
coroners jury Thursday to enquire
into the caiie of death of an Ha
waiian by the name of Hen Amina
Kapanaia who died at the Malu
lani Hospital on the 21st of
September from bloodpoisoning
which is said to be the result of a
bite by a woman with whomv he
The old man lived in Kaupo
and is said to have received the
wound several months ago.
About' the middle of September
ho was advised by, Dr. Dens of
Hana to come to Wailuku at once
and have the affected part am
putated. He did not appearat the
hospital until a week later when
an operation was performed by
Doctor W. Osmer.
According to the testimony be
fore the jury the biting was tlie re
sult of a drunken low after the two
bad imbibed too freely of swipes
made of sour potatoes.
The woman is credited with ad
mitting the biting. The statement
was made before the jury that the

Appellate Judge Scores Sea
A principle in salvage cases has
been laid down by the judge of the
Appellate Court who reviewed the
case of the owners of the cable
steamship Restorer against the
Paeifu: Mail company, for salving
the steamship Manchuria which
went on the rocks at Waimanalo
Hay, which may have a far-reaching
effect in future cases. The
judge st-veiely criticized mariners
who stand off while a vessel in dis
tress is going lo ruin. His de
cision in this case was as follows:
"A salvor, said the court in the
case of The Howard, 12 Fed. Cas.
(!.'50 (io.'i, who, regardless of per
sonal considerations, gallantly
lushes into dangers to preserve the
lives and property of others, when
exposed to the horros of shipwreck,
or he who promptly goes forward
and contributes his aid when he
believes his services will be benefi
cial in preventing impending loss,
without stopping to inquire what
amount in dollars and cents his
exertions will bring to his own
pocket, will always receive that
liberal reward for his services
which it is the policy" of the law to
allow, and which courts feel pleas
ure in awarding to generous and
manly conduct; while he who holds
back and quietly looks on at ap
proaching ruin until his own ser
vices become indispensable to the
preservation of the property he
sees exposed witl the expectation
that his reward will thereby be in
creased in proportion, to the in
creased dangers from which the
property is ultimately rescued,
will find that he is disappointed in
the realization of his golden hopes,
and that a display of avarice at
such a time renders him an object
of contumely and reproach."

Impressive Service At
I-ast Sunday morning the Kanhu
manu Church of Wailuku was pack
ed with people for the. installation
service of Rev. Lincoln Rcnjainiu
Kaumeheiwa. The audience was so
large that many stood at the door,
and chairs were in the aisles of tho
Church. Many of the members
from Waikapu and Kahului were
present, for in olden days both of
these Churches were "apana or
branch Churches of Kaahumanu.
A printed order of .service for the
day was followed. On the pulpit
platform sat Revs. Obed Nawahine,
D. N. Opunui, L. R. Kamnehiewa,
