Swept by Heavy Seas
' Could Not Land.
Tuesday owning last, there was
such an unusually heavy swell at
McGregor landing that the S. S.
Mauna Kca was unable, to land nil
of her passengers and" the IJ. S.
mails.- The first boat made the
landing in a lull between heavy seas,
andithe passengers scrambled ashore
safely before the big rollers came in
sucli rapid succession that the lines
broke, and only the good seaman
ship displayed by the crew saved .it
from disaster. The boat safely clear
ed the wharf leaving' ashore two
men of the crew, who had jumped
on the wharf with the lines, but
were unable to get back.
The next two boats did not at
tempt to make a landing and return
ed to the steamer with the passen
gers and mail, and. the Mauna Kea
resumed her course to Hawaii.
All that night and Wednesday
the heavy seas battered the
wharf, and eve-witnesses say the
green seas swept the structure from
end to end, and up against the ware
house. Some of the woodwork
around the. Avharf was broken ' off
arTd spept away, and much of the
floor planking knocked loose. About
one hundred dollars would repair
all the damage to the structure
itself, but the feelings of the public
suffered over $20,000 damages.
As this state of affairs is nothing
unusual to the McGregor landing,
there are people who want to know
in case a person gets seriously injured
or killed there, whether, the Steam
ship Company, the Territory or the
County would be liable for the da
mage? On account of it there is
talk of calling a public meeting to
ask the government to restore the
old landing at Maala'ea, which after
alibis the safest landing on that side
of Maui; and there are others who
favor changing over to the Kihei
side of the bay, where ttic seas are

A Wonderful Cure.
A Wonderful demonstration of
the power of modern science over
deseaso was given in Honolulu re
cently. A workman, not having
the proper care after an accident,
was attacked by tetanus, commonly
known as lock-jaw. When the man
was taken to the hospital, his whole
body was rigid, and his jaws were
set. Dr. Mackall the city and
county physician, who was in at'
tendance fought the desease so sua
eessfully that the man has been (lis
charged irom the hospital and is
now going about his work as usual.
This is the first cape of tetanus that
has ever been cured in these islands,
and m tact the percentage gi cures
known is only about ono in one
thousand. Dr. Mackall is receiv

of Honolulu is fortunate in having
so able a practitioner for county

Murder by Filipino.
Another Filipino murder took
place in I faniakua on Monday morn
ing. Eugenio Maranda, who had
been working at Paauhau, was walk
ing along the government road head
ed for Kukuihaele with two country
men, when he met four others of his
own race, among whom was a man
named Texson, whom he had had a
dispute with before the meeting
mentioned. When the two met
there was little said but Texson pull
ed a revolver" and shot Marfuida
several times in the huad.
Deputy Sheriff Overend was noti
fied at once and went to the scene
of the trouble. The victim of the
assault was there but his assailant
and the rest of the Filipinos had
disappeared. Overend brought the
wounded man to town and had him
attended by a doctor and ho recover
ed enough to tell the names of his
assailant and all the others in the
party. His two companions came
n later and gave themselves up and
two of the others were arrested short
On Tuesday morning Overend
heard that Texson had been seen
in the bushes above Paauhau and
immediately organized a posse in
pursuit. 1 he searcH was a success
ful ono and thanks to the quickness
of ono of the posse, Manuel S. Bo
telho, Texaon was captured with
out bloodshed. He had ono of his
companions with him and was fully
armed and ready to resist arrest to
the last, but Botelho caught sight
of his man first and got the drop on
him, compelling him to surrender
He was brought into Honokaa and
placed in jail, where he is held for
preliminary hearing before Judge

ing probably saved the life of his

before he had a chance to identify
his assailant, but, with tho many
witnesses, it should lo an easy mat

Texson. Maranda was so badly hurt
that tho doctor who attended him

The Third District is to elect one
senator this year, and W. J. Coellio
is the only known aspirant for the

Maui quite recently, and lost much
strength by indulging in a campaign
of mis-representation and abuse
against other leading republicans.
Tho most sanguine of his friends
are beginning to doubt his chances
of landing the G. O. P. nomination.
Ever since the plebiscite the demo
crats have been ready to tender him
the nomination on their ticket with
out conditions: but the tide has
turned and the democrats have bo
gun to question the wisdom of such
course and will no longer give
Coelbo the senatorial nomination t,

himself as a democrat. The home
rulers are saying they will nominate

for senator. So Coelbo will have

son plantation mossing their lands
came to head recently when li home

Iind Commissioner Campbell has
taken a hand in tho matter and has
